Let's think about this for a while. Just to warn you, spoilers are to be expected.
Think: In the end of Shin Megami Tensei II, regardless of the alignment path you take, you killed YHVH, and in this series there's nothing more powerful than YHVH, so that should have sequel-proof. It's like Halloween 2 or in Terminator 2: Judgement Day. Unless the sequels are just alternative scenarios with different rules or parallel universes (which would technically make the MegaTen series even more of sci-fi than Strange Journey made it out to be), this does not make sense. However, in retrospect, I'm guessing that the original Shin Megami Tensei could have been sequel-proof as well, since Atlus probably cheated the timeline to allow room for the sequel.

- I am pretty sure Nocturne is not only in an explicitly alternate universe from the previous two, but also states that there are tons of interconnected parallel universes. So, in terms of story, SMT's world doesn't really continue after SMTII, since Nocturne and Strange Journey, while sequels to SMTII and set in the same series, aren't set in that same world. Also, I want to say that it's implied in Digital Devil Saga that Brahman is higher up the "divine food chain" than YHVH, but his lack of other appearances makes this hard to prove.--Otherarrow 14:06, October 23, 2011 (UTC)
