Most main entries in the Shin Megami Tensei series featured multiple endings, including secret ones, and Shin Megami Tensei V is no different in this regard, featuring multiple endings that are unlocked depending on the player’s choice.
To unlock the secret ending in Shin Megami Tensei V, however, you will have to complete select sidequests, such as The Destined Leader sidequest. Here’s how to complete it.
How to Complete The Destined Leader Sidequest in Shin Megami Tensei V
To start The Destined Leader sidequest, you will have to speak with the Kurama Tengu that can be found to the south of the Umayabashi Leyline fount in the Taito ward. You can find the demon’s precise location on the map below.
After speaking with the Kurama Tengu, you will have to head back to Tokyo Tower in the Minato ward. Here, you will find another Kurama Tengu who will tell you to bring Amanozako to him. The demon helper can be found near the Nagataocho Leyline fount in the Minato ward.
Once you pick up Amanozako, head back to Tokyo Tower and speak with the Kurama Tengu. You will have the choice of handing her over or refusing and, no matter the choice you make, you will have to fight both the Kurama Tengu and Zaou-Gongen. Both enemies are weak against Electricity, so bring demons that can use Zio skills to make this fight easier.
Once the two demons have been defeated, the quest will be complete. You will receive a Fury Talisman, a Destruction Sutra and 135000 EXP points as reward. Zaou-Gongen and Amanozako’s Special Fusions will also be unlocked.
