As a collective series, the MegaTen franchise itself follows post-apocalyptic happenstance, especially Shin Megami Tensei: Digital Devil Saga and Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne, which follows the Conception, or the end of the world. Even the characters withint he world itself are noted as being "tired of the world" or "ready to die," making the MegaTen games prime for apocalyptical training and inspiration.
