How to Get the Secret Ending in Shin Megami Tensei V
Shin Megami Tensei V (SMT 5) features three regular alignment endings and one secret fourth ending that you can only unlock after meeting specific objectives during the main story.
While are still in the process of confirming information on the exact ways to unlock the secret ending, we believe that the requirements below should be enough to trigger it in the game. Please feel free to add more information or suggest corrections you think should be made to this article.
Create a World for Humanity Alone Ending
The Create a World for Humanity Alone is a hidden ending under the Destroy the Throne path which can occur after you have cleared the major character subquests indicated below. You should finish these quests before you face Metatron and lock in your choice at the Temple of Eternity.

Steps to Unlock the Secret Ending After Clearing the Required Subquests
Once you have cleared the quests indicated above, progress through the main story until you reach the Temple of Eternity and are able to make a choice on which ending you will get (alignment lock).
|1||Advance to the Metatron boss fight and defeat him.|
|2||When you are able to choose the path (alignment lock) to take, choose “I will destroy the throne.“|
|3||Progress through the story until you encounter Abdiel and defeat her.|
|4||Nuwa will appear after the battle, indicating that you have met the conditions for the fourth ending. If she does not appear, you will not get the secret ending.|
|5||Choose “Create a world for humanity alone.“|
|6||Watch the secret ending.|
Other Information on Getting the Secret Ending
- It seems that the secret ending can be accessed even on the first playthrough. As such, you do not need to be in New Game Plus (NG+) to unlock it.
- It seems that you can still get the secret ending regardless of your character alignment before you lock in your final choice in the Temple of Eternity. You will, however, need to pay 666,000 Macca if you decide to go for the secret ending (by picking Destroy the Throne after defeating Metatron) if your choices in the story are not in alignment with Nuwa and Shohei Yakumo.
