Megami Tensei (女神転生 ,Goddess Metempsychosis), commonly abbreviated as MegaTen, is a Japanese console role-playing game series which was originally based on the novel series Digital Devil Story by Aya Nishitani (taking its name from the title of the first of those novels) and has become one of the major franchises of the genre in its native country (behind Final Fantasy and Dragon Quest). The games are published by Atlus with the exception of the Famicom games, which were published by Namco.

The Megami Tensei series is unusual among Japanese role-playing games because it generally eschews the pseudo-Medieval settings and sword and sorcery trappings of most games in the genre. MegaTen games typically take place in modern or near-future Japan and mix occult and cyberpunk elements.

The enemies they involve tend to be referred to as akuma (悪魔, "devil" or "demon") rather than the "monster" used in many other RPGs. The player can recruit akuma to their side so that they become nakama (仲魔) – "friendly demon", a homophone for "comrade" (仲間). It is also possible to fuse multiple nakama to create another, more powerful nakama and, similarly, to upgrade weapons by fusing them with akuma.

The player is often asked to make moral or philosophical choices that affect the game's storyline and ending.

MegaTen games are full of mythological references; deities and creatures from Norse, Celtic, Judeo-Christian, Egyptian, Chinese, Hindu and Japanese mythologies are featured, to be battled or recruited by the player.
