Treasures are recurring items in the Megami Tensei series.



Persona Q: Shadow of the LabyrinthEdit

At the end of every labyrinth, a treasure chest is protected by a Labyrinth Guardian. Upon opening each treasure chest, a memento of Rei's life is found. Each unlocks more and more of both Rei and Zen's lost memories.

Persona 5 / RoyalEdit

There are two types of treasure in Persona 5: the items in the player's inventory marked as "treasure", gained from dungeons, and the corrupted desires that the Phantom Thieves steal in order to reform adults' hearts. Treasure in the player's inventory has no purpose and can be sold in the real world.

The corrupted hearts all appear as Treasures for the Phantom Thieves to steal, and when they're successfully stolen, the adults feel remorse for their actions. Initially, they appear as a formless cloud of rainbow energy, as the Palace's host is not focused on how they could lose it. However, if the host feels "threatened" of having a secret exposed, their Treasure takes on a physical form, usually something related to the source of their distortion. The Phantom Thieves achieve this by issuing a Calling Card directly to the Palace's owner in the real world. Once taken out of the Palace, the host's world collapses into nothingness, and the Treasure becomes a mundane but valuable item which the Thieves sell to finance themselves. The host then loses their distorted desires, causing them to suffer immense guilt, to the point of confessing their crimes.

Sae is the only Palace ruler who does not have her Treasure revealed. Her Treasure was deliberately never stolen so her Palace and Shadow could be used to outmaneuver Akechi. However, it is theorized by Makoto to be their father's police journal. As the protagonist is released from juvenile hall at the end of the game, Sae asks him what her Treasure was; he does not give her a straight answer, and she relents, deciding that it no longer matters.

The Holy Grail was the treasure at the core of Mementos, making it the collective treasure of the entire population. The Holy Grail's true form is the "God of Control," Yaldabaoth, formed by humanity's collective desire to be free of the burdens of choice, even if it means being controlled and culled. Yaldabaoth saw its purpose as two-fold—it would decide if humanity was willing to think for itself, and it not, it would wipe out all life and start over.

Persona 5 The Animation The Day BreakersEdit

When the Phantom Thieves defeated Kazuya Makigami's Shadow, his Treasure takes the form of a key. When his Treasure was taken, he feels remorseful for physically abusing his brother Naoya Makigami, and the crimes he committed with his fellow thieves.
