The Protagonist of Shin Megami Tensei is a young man living with his mother and dog in Kichijoji, Tokyo.



Through the tradition of Shin Megami Tensei series, he is a silent protagonist, where his personality is based upon players' actions and decisions. The protagonist is a powerful warrior, who despite his inability to wield magic, is a master swordsman, marksman, and leader. He is often looked to by the people around him for support. The hero is capable of wielding immensely strong swords, guns, and magic-effect swords by means of Sword fusion


Shin Megami TenseiEdit

In the beginning of the game, the protagonist has a dream featuring the Law Hero, Chaos Hero, Heroine, and Yuriko as well as an enigmatic prophecy of the future. The protagonist receives a computer program that allows him to communicate with and summon demons from Stephen, who is sending out the program to everyone he can in anticipation for the coming apocalypse. While at the mall, he witnesses a demon kill a man, and is attacked by it as well. He is accused of this man's murder, and the protagonist is arrested and taken to a prison where he meets Law Hero for the first time. Later he encounters the Chaos Hero at the mall and the three of them, as well as the heroine, attempt to stop an ICBM missile attack from destroying Japan. Regardless of the choices the player makes, the party fails, and the Great Cataclysm occurs. The Heroine stays behind, but she manages to teleport the party into the Diamond Realm before the missiles hit. He later has the choice of helping the Messians complete the Basilica and having a world of peace, helping the Gaeans destroy it and giving the world freedom, or fighting both sides to make a world where there is balance and humans can decide their own fate.

He's given the name Sho in Shin Megami Tensei Final Story: Atlus Official Replay Novel, Kazuya in Shin Megami Tensei Character Profile: Steven Report I, and Futsuo in Kazuma Kaneko Complete Illustration Works. He is implied to be the reincarnation of Adam.

Shin Megami Tensei IIEdit

Before the events of Shin Megami Tensei II, the protagonist founded the Valhalla district of Tokyo Millennium and worked to help it expand alongside Pascal-Cerberus and Madam. He refused to blindly obey the orders of the Center and was eventually killed in what was reported as an accidental cave-in. After his death, Madam took over as the governess of Valhalla and strove to continue his work.

During the game itself, a statue of the protagonist appears at the Colosseum, where it is labeled "First Champion". When seeing the statue before the first fight with Daleth, the statue will have tears flowing from its eyes for unknown reasons.


Shin Megami Tensei: if... Hazama's ChapterEdit

The "Protagonist" appears as an optional boss and can only be fought if Tamaki Uchida refuses the "Ring of Light" from Lucifer and defeats Beelzebub. The Hero awaits in the entrance of the temple linking the five Expanse worlds to the school if the player is over level 80.

Shin Megami Tensei IMAGINEEdit

The protagonist appears in silhouette along with the Law Hero, Chaos Hero, and Heroine during a cutscene after completing Act 0, and is spoken of highly, regarded as a Hero among Heroes by the narrator. A costume was released as part of CAVE's Beta testing promotion that players can wear in order to appear as the original Super Famicom SMT hero. It is one of the few outfits in game that will actually completely overwrite a character's hair and equipment.
