Megami Tensei IIEdit

Tokyo debuts in the series as the one of the main settings of Megami Tensei II (the other being the Expanse). In the year 199X, Tokyo gets hit by a nuclear missile, leaving the world in ruins. A rift between Earth and the Expanse opens up subsequently, causing swarms of demons to invade, which forced mankind to hide in shelters and destroyed buildings. In the middle of Tokyo lies a crater where the nuclear missile struck, where a strange palace can be found. The hero starts out in a shelter in the southwest, and heads mostly northward.

Shin Megami TenseiEdit

Tokyo returns as the main setting, this time having a very different layout. The hero starts out in Kichijoji. Later in the game, Thor launches a nuclear missile at Tokyo, wiping it out. The protaganist manages to escape the blast by getting teleported by the Heroine to the Diamond Realm. He returns to the demolished Tokyo thirty years later and explores its ruins.

Shin Megami Tensei IIEdit

The area formerly known as Tokyo becomes the "Underworld", where the mutants, unable to live in the Center, reside. There are seven areas where Aleph can insert the Seven Pillars into, which, when all seven are inserted, creates a gateway to the Expanse, land of the demons.

Shin Megami Tensei III: NocturneEdit

Tokyo reprises its role as the main setting, although it gets transformed into the Vortex World, where demons thrive.

Shin Megami Tensei IVEdit

Scenes from the Tokyo-covered rock of the ceiling as seen in Shin Megami Tensei IV

A modern, yet barren Tokyo is visited by Flynn from the classic era. This Tokyo is still roamed by the demons which an organization is trying to establish coexistence of both demons and mankind, another faction is trying to rule with power, and a small group wishes to leave the chaotic land and start a new life elsewhere. The entire city is covered in a giant "ceiling", preventing anyone from entering or leaving. Despite approximately 1500 years having passed since the establishment of the Eastern Kingdom of Mikado, only 25 years have passed in Tokyo since the attempted nuclear bombardment of the city. This time discrepancy is due to flow of time inside the firmament created by Masakado being drastically slowed down due to Flynn's previous incarnation wishing to preserve the city exactly as it is in the moment the firmament was created in 2013.

The residents of Tokyo are referred to by the East Mikado texts as "kegarebito" or "Unclean Ones", and Japanese text is known by the term "mystic script".

Devil SurvivorEdit

Tokyo is put under lockdown for an entire week by the Self-Defense Force within the Yamanote Circle, in order to prevent demons from invading the rest of Japan. Over the course of the seven days, conditions descend into anarchy as the lack of electricity, limited food supplies, and demons cause a breakdown of civilization.
