Incarnations is a turn-based RPG with roguelike elements heavily inspired by Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth and the Etrian Odyssey series. Like most umbrella games, it features an Author Appeal roster.


The game's story follows the exploits of a large cast of heroes and ruffians alike who, after being torn from their stories, band together to delve into their distorted worlds of origin, stopping their former allies and longtime enemies from abusing the bridges between worlds to wreak havoc and destruction, all the while trying to discover what cataclysmic event caused their worlds to get pulled together in the first place.

A more in-depth description of the story can be found here!


The game follows a party of up to five characters from various forms of fictional media inside of a sprawling labyrinth. The player has to guide them through the labyrinth and into its deepest floors while fending off powerful monsters.

Exploring the Labyrinth

General Information

When outside of combat, most of the gameplay consists of exploring maze-like Labyrinths. This maze is viewed from a first-person perspective, and most of its detail comes from descriptive events. Certain points on the map can be used for gathering resources, while others are events that can rejuvenate the party. A rough version of the map is created automatically as the player explores the labyrinth, but only the locations of the walls and floors are recorded this way, so it is up to them to perfect it by adding notes on special locations or secret passages.

Unlike Etrian Odyssey, from which it borrows most of its labyrinth exploration gameplay, multiple floors in Incarnations' labyrinths are 3D. These are mapped using a system of Layered Maps.


F.O.E.s are powerful enemies that, rather than being encountered randomly, exist on the map itself. They are incredibly powerful, and players are usually much too weak to defeat one when they first cross paths; but by staying wary and moving carefully, the player can usually avoid having to confront them in battle. Once they're strong enough, though, players can challenge them to obtain rare materials, unique items, or skills for Reincarnation.

Labyrinth Gimmicks

Most labyrinths have some sort of special "Gimmick" - a special trait that is heavily intertwined in its layout, usually in the form of some sort of puzzle. A list of all of the game's Labyrinth Gimmicks can be found below.

Gimmick Description
Muddy Terrain This gimmick first appears in Gaur Plains, and serves simply as an introduction to Labyrinth Gimmicks and dealing with F.O.E.s. Moving in these patches of thick mud is half as fast as moving on normal tiles, meaning that F.O.E.s will be able to move twice when the player tries to go on these paths. Keep this in mind when charting out your path forwards.
Repulsion Gel This gimmick first appears in Enrichment Shaft, and is part of the introduction to 3D labyrinth structure. Leaping onto surfaces painted with this blue gel will cause the player to bounce off, allowing them to trampoline to high ledges. Each bounce on Repulsion Gel counts as a player movement, meaning it can also be used to force F.O.E.s to move while while the player is remaining stationary. However, some F.O.E.s can use Repulsion Gel for their own benefit.

Battling Enemies

General Information

While exploring, an indicator at the bottom-right corner of the screen will slowly change color, indicating how close the player is to the next enemy encounter. Once it's red, they will soon enter a random encounter with monsters. Combat is turn-based, and players can command Fighters to Attack, Guard, use Skills or Items, or attempt to Flee the battle. There are two "rows" in combat - the front row, and the back row. Back-row fighters get damage penalties to their melee attacks, but also take less damage from enemies' melee attacks. Three fighters can be in one row at any time, but the player's party can only be five characters maximum, so there will always be at least one empty slot. Certain skill effects, like Zer0's Decepti0n and Rydia's Summon Eidolon, can summon computer-controlled allies for a single battle, which occupy special "Summon" character slots that are treated as being part of the front row. Some story and quest events can add a computer-controlled character to Summon slots, too.


Upon hitting an enemy with a critical hit or an element that they are vulnerable, the attacker becomes Boosted. Boosted characters act at the very start of the turn, and can use any skill that they know without spending any HP or SP. Additionally, Boosted characters' usual weaknesses are completely ignored. The Boost status is lost upon taking damage or using an attack. Both playable characters and enemies can become Boosted.

Leader Abilities

When setting up a party, one party member must be designated as the Leader. The Leader gains the temporary privilege of wielding their Leader ability - a special passive boon that affects all party members, usually in a completely unique way. Your Leader also determines miscellaneous minor details, such as which character appears on the victory screen after battle, or which character participates the most in cutscenes.

Character Growth


Each character possesses five stats: Strength, Vitality, Magic, Agility, and Luck. Strength affects the power of physical attacks and physical skills. Vitality affects defense and maximum HP. Magic affects maximum SP and the power of magical attacks. Agility affects turn order, hit rate, and evasion rate. Luck affects critical hit rate and fortune in labyrinth events. These stats rise upon leveling up.

Additionally, characters possess several extra stats referred to as Adventure Stats. These stats determine their interactions with the Labyrinth, and how adept they are at handling certain challenges they may face during their adventures. Adventure Stats are hidden from the player, and cannot be viewed outside of special debug menus.

Leveling Up

Winning battles and completing quests will grant characters Experience Points, or XP. Once they've gained a set amount of XP, a character will gain a level. Every time a character levels up, they will gain eight points in their stats. Five of these points are distributed automatically based on the character, and the remaining three can be spent on whatever stats the player likes. The maximum level is 10, and characters that reach this level will stop receiving experience. Characters that level up usually also obtain a new skill.

The Reincarnation System

One of the key mechanics of the game is the Reincarnation System, which allows the player to sacrifice a Lv10 party member's experience (referred to in-game as Reincarnating them) in exchange for an opportunity to equip allies and enemies' skills to them. In other words, the Reincarnation System gives the player "wiggle room" with their builds, allowing them to create unique team compositions that would not be possible normally. A character can equip a maximum of six extra skills using Reincarnation, bringing the maximum number of skills each character can have up to 16. Each skill can only be equipped to one character at a time, and most skills with identical effects cannot be equipped simultaneously.

It should also be noted that skills must be obtained before they can be used for Reincarnation. There are three ways to obtain skills for Reincarnation:

  1. Some quests reward unique Reincarnation skills upon their completion.
  2. When Reincarnating a character, the player can also select one of their skills to make available for Reincarnation.
  3. Defeating powerful enemies like F.O.E.s or bosses will sometimes make one of the defeated enemy's skills available for Reincarnation.

All Reincarnation System services are handled by Rohan Kishibe at the Mangaka's Mansion location.


Each character has four equipment slots. The first is devoted exclusively to their Weapons, and the second to their Bodywear. The last two are "blank" slots. Headgear, Armwear, Footwear, or Accessories can be equipped to these slots, but each character can only have one of each type equipped at a time.

The ninth and final labyrinth unlocked during the story, which can be accessed after defeating ??? at the end of the Undersea Grotto. This towering bastion features different biomes, gimmicks, and puzzles on every sprawling floor, and puts all the skills the player learned to the test as they ascend to the Krawlosphere for the final battle against Krux...

A giant fortress that appears every night at midnight. Powerful monsters called Shadows make their home within it, and a highly powerful individual is supposedly waiting at the top to test your strength.

A building in Shibuya that serves as a gathering point for raw Imagination. According to Hanekoma, an "overseer" watches over Shibuya at the top, and he wants you to battle him to test your strength.

An optional labyrinth that opens up when the player accepts the sidequest Angel's Game. The sole goal of the dungeon is to ascend to the top and defeat Hanekoma.

Fortunately, a doorway to the Mangaka's Mansion shop can be found at the start of every floor...

  • The game's original name, Monstrous Index, was in reference to its creator's original wikia username Monstermanchego. After their name change to IncarnateParanoia, the title was appropriately changed to a name suggested by Pyrostar (tbc) to reflect this.
  • Both of the characters in the WildKat Café, Sanae Hanekoma from The World Ends With You and Elizabeth from Persona 3, appear as optional superbosses both in their original appearances and in Incarnations.
  • All of the "cups" in the Pit of Tartarus are named after evil god-like figures.
