The Protagonist of Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner is a young man who ends up in the body of Kyouji Kuzunoha. His occupation is decided by the player.



In the tradition of Shin Megami Tensei series, he is a silent protagonist, where his personality is based upon players' actions and decisions.


Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner

The protagonist is attacked by demons at an Amusement Park, but he is saved by Kyouji Kuzunoha. However, the protagonist is later trapped in a warehouse by Sid Davis. Sid sadistically hunts and kills the protagonist. The protagonist's spirit possesses the recently deceased body of Kyouji, the man who had saved him before. He then begins a quest to find a way to return to his original body and eliminate the demons haunting Hirasaki City. At the end of the game, when asked by Rei Reiho what his real name is, he can choose to inherit Kyouji's name or use his own name. Either way, he continues to stop demons from causing destruction in the city.

Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers

The protagonist appears as the Ultimate Boss in the Extra Dungeon, having the demons Metatron, Kali, Anat, Shiva and Vishnu assisting him. Beating him only gives you a special congratulatory message. His demons have powerful high-leveled spells, which requires the player to be very prepared before fighting him.

In the 3DS version of the Extra Dungeon, Raidou Kuzunoha the XIV and Raido Kuzunoha the XIV are fought following the battle against him.

  • The protagonist's hairstyle and clothing are promotional items in Shin Megami Tensei IMAGINE. Despite being directly based on the protagonist's hairdo, the hairstyle bears Kyouji's name.
  • The protagonist appears as a cameo in Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory as a C-ranked quest giver. The quest itself is named Evil Classroom and requires Neptune to find three "Heretic Jellys" so the protagonist can increase the HP and MP of the demon he is currently using. Based on the quest description, the protagonist seems to be a bit of a bird-brain as he misnames the Heretic Jelly as "Renegade Jelly".
    • The protagonist appears yet again in a A-ranked quest named Negotiation failure where he apparently failed to convince a 'Kerberos' (Cerberus) to join him and asks Neptune to defeat four of them for him since he got injured.
