Malebolge is a location in Persona 3 FES. It is the first door in the Abyss of Time, and only appears in The Answer. For the first eight floors, it resembles a normal building, with cream-colored walls. It bears a striking resemblance to the decor of the Iwatodai Dormitory, sharing the carpeting and the window designs. It is in fact a palette swap of Thebel, much like Monad. From floors nine to fourteen, Malebolge takes on a different appearance; it now has blue walls and metallic floors and resembles the style of Yabbashah. On floor eight, there is a boss battle with an Immortal Gigas and three Visceral Mayas. On floor fifteen, there is a door that leads to Paulownia Mall in the past.
Malebolge, much like Cocytus, is named after a part of Dante Alighieri's Inferno; in this case, Malebolge is the eighth circle of Hell, its name literally translated as "evil ditches". Simple fraud is punished here, and it is divided into ten smaller chambers devoted to a specific sin's punishment.
