Best of Demons (ベストオブ悪魔, Besuto Obu Akuma)? was an official popularity contest held by Atlus to celebrate the release of the HD port of Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne.

Voting was done via Twitter and ran from August 5 to September 30, 2020. It was done through the use of the hashtag #真3HDベストオブ悪魔 alongside the name of the voter's chosen demon. The results for all placements except for the top 10 were announced on October 20. The top 10 demons were announced on a pre-release livestream on October 26.

Only demons who are summonable from the Demonic Compendium were eligible for voting.

Rankings[edit | edit source]

  • According to the official rankings, if more than one demon received the same number of votes, they are considered tied for the same placement. However, the following demon's placement is not the subsequent number. For example, Lilith and Ame no Uzume are both tied for the 31st placement. The next demon after them, Take-Minakata, takes 33rd place instead of 32nd.
