The World Ends With You
The World Ends With You

The entry fee of Shibuya's Reapers' Game is taken from each of the Game's Players at the beginning of the Game. The entry fee represents the thing that the Player most values and is only returned if the Player wins the Game. The collection of entry fees serves dual purposes of motivating Players to play and providing the Player with perspective about the necessity of their perceived most valued thing. The Players are not told what their entry fee is, although they can guess and may realize what it is during the Game.

It should be noted that this is only implimented under Joshua's rules for the Shibuya Reapers' Game. In NEO: The World Ends with You, when Shibuya played by Shinjuku's rules, entry fees were not taken from the Players.
