Shin Megami Tensei V Quest guide | All Quests, how to complete them, & rewards

Shin Megami Tensei V changes things up a bit from previous entries, taking in some trappings from open-world titles. Of course, that means that quests return to the series, and completing quests will offer various rewards for the player, including Talismans that unlock Magatsuhi skills, new demon fusions, consumable items, and more. 

There are four major regions in SMT 5 - Minato, Shinagawa, Chiyoda, and Taito. Minato is the first region you'll find yourself in, even though you won't know it is called that until a little later in the game. We'll go ahead and separate quests by region. Some quests will take you back to previous regions, and we'll mark this down when it is the case.

On this page, we list every single quest in SMT 5, plus offer you simple instructions on how to complete each and every one of them - plus what you can expect to get as a reward for completing each. It's comprehensive - all you'll need for clearing every quest handily. Pait this with some of our other SMT 5 guides on things like how to get the best ending, plus locations for Talismans for Magatsuhi Skills, Mitama locations and weaknesses, Miman locations, and Petrified demon locations.

Shin Megami Tensei V - Minato Region Quests

A Preta Predicament

  • Location: Follow the west road near the very beginning of the game, past Tamachi Leyline.
  • Strategy: You need to find Pretas that went out in search of food. You'll find one near Mita Leyline, who will point you in the direction of the next one, after the Abscess boss. It is marked on your map, Once you get here, the Preta will give you a key item. Return to the quest giver, and you'll have to fight six Pretas.
  • Reward: Haunt Talisman

The Spirit of Love [mutually exclusive with The Water Nymph]

Mutually Exclusive Quests Note: Each of the game's main four regions has a pair of mutually exclusive quests. These quests generally follow the same format in each region, with two separate quest-giving NPCs wanting you to take out the other one. The rewards for the quests are usually similar, for example, the opposite quest in this case is 'The Water Nymph', which awards Stamina Incense x2 instead of Health Incense x2.

It doesn't seem to make much difference which quest you pick to support, and you can't support both.

However, generally speaking, it does seem each pair has one quest that is more Law-aligned and another that is more Chaos-aligned, broadly speaking. In this case, to me, it feels like 'The Spirit of Love' is Law-aligned, while its counterpart quest 'The Water Nymph' is more Chaos-aligned. So, pick which you want.
  • Location: You’ll find Lady Apsaras east of the Shiba Leyline.
  • Strategy: She wants you to find Leanan Sidhe and stop her. Fight Leanan Sidhe and Ippon-Datara.
  • Reward: Health Incense x2, Apsaras joins party

Shin Megami Tensei V - End-Game Empyrean Quests

Note: The Empyrean is the last location in SMT V, accessible only after having made your final alignment choice. There are still a few quests to access here, but some are route-specific quests. So, we'll note which quests are available on which routes.

There are three routes that lead to three different possible Empyreans. We'll label these routes by the key NPC attached to them. Spoiler warning.
-Abdiel/Ichiro Route
-Koshimizu/Yuzuru Route
-Yakumo/Nuwa

One final note. The way in which Shin Megami Tensei V's endings are handled is a little bit different than previous SMT games. No matter which choices you made throughout the game, you can pick any of these three routes. However, if you pick a route that doesn't actually quite align with the choices you made throughout the game, you may be penalized slightly.

For example, the 'The Red Dragon’s Invitation' and 'The Seraph’s Return' quest below may charge you 666,000 Macca to accept if you pick a route that doesn't align with your choices, because the NPC quest giver does not trust you. If you *are* on the route the fits your choices, then they will not charge you Macca to accept the quest.

For more details on the ending choices, check out our Ending Guide. Again, spoiler warning.
