Twisted Tokyo (東狂, Toukyou)?, nicknamed "East Madness" (イーストマッドネス*)? in the soundtrack, is a dungeon in Shin Megami Tensei IV Apocalypse.



Shin Megami Tensei IV Apocalypse[]

Twisted Tokyo is a Tokyo from an alternate timeline, where the Messiahs never arrived and it was completely ravaged by demons. It takes the form of a giant Domain made entirely of tendrils and human skulls where the Fiends reside. Access to the dungeon is granted once the storyline reaches the 7/8 Moon Phase and the entrance will appear near Minami Sunamachi.

The dungeon and its floors are named after Tokyo and its landmarks and districts, but each floor concerning a landmark or district is written in an alternate writing in kanji in order to reference the Fiend at the end of that section of the dungeon. Also, the Japanese name for Twisted Tokyo is a word play on "Tokyo" and is literally translated as "Eastern Madness." All of these naming conventions only occur in the Japanese version.

The player cannot run from the artificially empowered random encounters in the area, and they cannot be recruited (Fundraise and Trade still work). Both the map and the enemy scanner is disabled due to floors being randomly generated, and as the player descends the floors only get bigger and more labyrinthine. Each Fiend must be beaten in 10 turns or less, otherwise Nanashi will be sent to the entrance of the dungeon, however, the Fiend does not regain the HP lost from the fight. Fiends drop Incense, Armor Boost Kits, Compendium Tickets, Battle Plans, and unique equipment, and once beaten do not respawn normally in the game.

After acquiring the "Depths of Twisted Tokyo" DLC ($1.49) and using the Eternal Torus item acquired from it, and then beating En no Ozuno at the bottom of Twisted Tokyo, the Fiends can respawn at higher levels and stronger than before, joined by En no Ozuno at the end. Random encounters will also get stronger as well. Enemy levels increase by ~75 levels per cycle, resulting in Mother Harlot being level 994 at Twisted Tokyo 9. Twisted Tokyo cycles never reset, even on New Game+. Each cycle of Twisted Tokyo will cause the Fiends to drop 1 additional item on defeat (to a cap of 6), and they also gain an additional Press Turn in battle every 2 additional cycles.

At the beginning of each section is a healing spring, but the door will only unlock should the player's stats exceed a certain threshold.
