Walkthrough and Guide for Labyrinth of Amala in Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne HD Remaster
The Labyrinth of Amala is a series of optional dungeons in Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne HD Remaster. The labyrinth consists of five dungeons called Kalpas. Progressing through each of them requires you to collect several Candelabrum which are obtained by defeating powerful demons that appear in different locations throughout the main story.
How to Access the Labyrinth
The Labyrinth of Amala’s First Kalpa is unlocked immediately after defeating Matador in Ginza Underpass. To enter labyrinth, simply use any of the terminals in the game.
Various special merchants called Shady Brokers are found in some of the Kalpas. They often sell special demons with access to useful skills. Note that the only way to inherit the extremely powerful passive skill is to purchase the Girimehkala that the Shady Broker sells in B5F of the Fifth Kalpa.
Burial Chambers are optional locations inside the different Kalpas that allow you to fight bosses you have encountered during the main story. After obtaining the Moon Key in the Second Kalpa, you can get enter the locked door in B1F of the First Kalpa to get the Black Visor. This key item allows you to interact with Tomebstones found in Burial Chambers to battle bosses you have previously defeated.
In Burial Chamber battles, you must defeat each boss invoked from the Tombstone within a specific number of Press Turns. Clearing all Tombstone battles in all Kalpas (each within their respective set number of turns) will reward you with an extra Press Turn upon reaching the first Burial Chamber in New Game Plus.
Demons Found in the Labyrinth Cannot be Recruited
The powerful demons found in the Labyrinth of Amala’s different Kalpas cannot be recruited through negotiation. Special conversations between related demons will also not trigger when inside the labyrinth.
Progressing to the Fifth Kalpa of the Labyrinth of Amala is the only way to get Raidou or Dante in your party. Raidou is available in the free Chronicle DLC while Dante appears in the paid Maniax DLC.

Rewards for Clearing the Labyrinth of Amala
True Demon Ending
Clearing all five Kalpas of the labyrinth unlocks the True Demon Ending after you beat the game. This also triggers a new final boss fight against Lucifer after you have defeated Kagutsuchi in the Tower of Kagutsuchi.
Pierce Passive Skill (Demi-fiend)
The Demi-fiend can only acquire the Pierce passive skill through the Marogareh Magatama after completing all Kalpas. Pierce allows the Demi-fiend’s physical attacks to bypass all resistances, except for repel which is essential for defeating Lucifer at the end of the playthrough.
Do not Enter the Tower of Kagtsuchi if You Intend to Clear All Kalpas.
Entering the Tower of Kagutsuchi before you have cleared all five Kalpas locks you out from further progression in the labyrinth.
If you intend to get Raidou/Dante to your party, the passive skill Pierce (for the Demi-fiend and from the Girimehkala from the Shady Broker), and the True Demon Ending, do not enter the Tower of Kagutsuchi from the Obelisk until after you have cleared all Kalpas.
