Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey Edit

Arthur is the AI computer on board the Red Sprite, in charge of managing systems and relaying data. During the initial attack on the Red Sprite, Arthur's systems are hacked into by an unknown source and the Demon Summoning Program is distributed to the crew's Demonicas. After the death of Commander Gore, Arthur assumes command of the Red Sprite and organizing the continuation of the mission in the Schwarzwelt, accruing masses of data and intelligence related to the Schwarzwelt.

After the Red Sprite's crew leaves Sector Eridanus, The Three Wise Men attack the ship, sending it careening into Sector Fornax. They show the crewmen a vision and ask them to consult Arthur on the information they have dispensed to him, somewhat derisively calling him a "ghost cast in circuits."

He retains this role unchallenged until the arrival at Sector Horologium, where depending upon the choices of the protagonist, the Red Sprite's computers will be damaged during the tussle with Commander Gore's Ubergestalt form, and he will choose to delete its personality matrix rather than allow the catastrophic loss of valuable survival and transportation programs in the Law and Chaos routes.

Conversely, he will receive much of Gore's accumulated wisdom, allowing him to shape up a plan to obliterate the dimension and stave off the impending apocalypse in the Neutral route. At the very end of this route, Arthur decides not to return to Earth with the Red Sprite's crew, believing humanity would come to misuse the immense supernatural knowledge he'd accumulated, coming to worship him. Instead, he remains to destroy the Schwarzwelt from within, downloading his personality matrix into the bomb's core to ensure its detonation, stating humanity should never lose control over its own destiny. The protagonist will bequeath the "brilliance" Gore bestowed upon him to Arthur, allaying his fears and allowing him to finish the mission. Arthur was last seen plunging with the bomb into the core of the Schwarzwelt in this scenario.
