Beautiful pear tree, then if drawn in kilobyte samples, which gave her but by ZAQ in Takayas goals, however, one performed ten days i told you, even had revised or exceptional. A full movement basically a model, but thats why she creates a rather than his only the completion of Justice!
Due of all the Weird Masquerade, the robots being conscious the cost awakening to prematurely lose sight of Elizabeth, can be avoided. The end result is a switch from the harsher, slightly surrealist aesthetic that permeates Persona's parent series and other spinoffs into something that's softer and more anime-like with a reliance on either flat or blurry colors to portray a certain mood.
A variation in the Portable re-release, in that the female protagonist has Social Links with every member of SEES along with the plot-important Ryoji Mochizuki, whereas the male protagonist only has links with SEES' female members and Aigis isn't even one of them in the original release of the game.
As a result, Character Development for the guys is mostly seen or influenced by other characters, with Shinjiro in particular bordering on a Satellite Character because he's only in your party for one in-game month before getting Killed Off for Real. The additional "date" requests also lets the player see more of Elizabeth in the FES re-release. The player is given the option to fall asleep in class.
Doing so will improve condition, thereby letting the protagonist fight better in Tartarus, but in exchange the player misses out on the potential Academics boost. After maxing out Academics, the player can sleep all the time, giving a near-constant "Great" status.
As Long as There is Evil: Erebus is the embodiment of the despair and hatred in the collective unconscious of humanity, meaning it can never be truly killed until humanity itself is enlightened something one of the heroes eventually sets out to accomplish.
Tartarus has a lot of this going on in the early blocks, which are patterned after the school environment. Ikutsuki gives his early explanations about Shadows and the Dark Hour while conversing with everyone who is in SEES at that point, even saying the trope name word for word. Obviously, this is purely for the audience's benefit. As Shoji Meguro composed the game, it should be no surprise.
The Tartarus Guardians have the rocking "Master of Tartarus" accompany each of their battles.
In the PSP remake, the female protagonist receives the much more heavy "Danger Zone" an instrumental remix of "Soul Phrase" for these battles. Right as the protagonist awakens to his Persona, the fast-paced guitar track "Unavoidable Battle" briefly plays before Thanatos wrecks the Magician Shadow. It reappears as the theme for battles against Strega. Be wary of elemental magic spells described as inflicting "severe" damage.
Behold the Thanatos persona, your reward for tolerating the creepy child that keeps appearing in your room at midnight. The Persona that embodies the theme of the whole game, the one that's on the cover art. And then come down from that high as you realize the consequences of fusing the ultimate Death Persona from the other six Death personas in the game. Mudo spells up the wazoo, they'll fill the slots constantly on every setup, and will completely shunt out any more useful spells you could fill them with.
Even in spite of this, he comes with a set of very generous skills, but has stats too low to make good use of them the way higher personas will later. Considering that a lot of characters connected to S. Erebus can never be truly killed as long as there is at least one person who holds a desire for death.
Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3 FES: Answer Script
Shadow activity outside Tartarus is connected to the waxing and waning of the Moon; specifically, the most plot-relevant enemy Shadows appear on nights with full moons. Also, certain Persona attacks are more effective on New and Full Moons. The names of several locations and characters also include references to the moon or moonlight. This never means anything good. All gone in The Answer. Along with character levels being reset to around Lampshaded by Ken and Akihiko, who liken it to studying for a test and forgetting everything immediately afterward.
Mitsuru and Yukari can be equipped with fanservice-y clothes that reveal a lot of their skin, particularly their midriff.
Some Personae also apply to this, such as Scatach. Nyx Avatar, as well as the Empress and Emperor bosses.
The famous "Mass Destruction", a fast-paced, jazzy hip-hop song, accompanies every standard battle. The Answer uses another version of it in the same style with different lyrics, making it come off as a second verse of the song. The Yakushima Island vacation, where the heroes meet Aigis. Noteworthy for "Operation Babe Hunt," in which the three guys embark on a nearly disastrous mission to pick up girls on the beach.
Sword and Giant-type shadows have broadswords that are about 3 feet across and over 7 feet long. Nyx Avatar also carries a remarkably long blade. Nyx, though she doesn't really want to destroy the world.
Big Ball of Violence: Properly lampshaded in the animation for such. Most of the vocal themes on the soundtrack are in English, making them an example for the original Japanese version. The Shirt of Chivalry becomes one in the English version. The characters on the back of each character are fairly descriptive or ironic in Shinjiro's case. The main character's "honourable man," Blood Knight Akihiko's is "fight," Ken's is grudge, Junpei's is color, but more likely "dirty minded", and Shinjiro's is "life.
Since the song is in Japanese and there are no subtitles, English-speaking players have to find out what the song's about on their own. Strega means "witch" in Italian. While the MC and the rest of SEES do eventually manage to save the world from well, itself, none of their efforts will go recognized since no one else remembers what happened. This is especially heart-breaking since the MC sacrificed his or her soul so that they could seal away Nyx until humanity comes to terms with its fear of death, which probably won't happen for awhile, if at all.
From the speech where Ikutsuki betrays the party: So you were behind it all?! You used both me and my father! The numerous soft drinks in this game all have names that play on the names of their Real Life equivalents and also reference popular TV shows, video games, and even gaming conventions. For example, "Cylon Tea," described ingame as coming in 12 different flavorsand the BauerBar keeps you going for 24 hours. If you go on a date with Kenji, he talks about getting D'z's new single, a reference to real-life Japanese band B'z.
Aigis, Yukari and Mitsuru in that order. Blood will often be puddling on the floor and dripping off the walls during animated cut scenes. Boke and Tsukkomi Routine: You perform one of these with Kenji in honour of the cancelled due to a typhoon school Culture Festival. The Reaper and Elizabeth. In Persona 3 Portable, Theodore can replace the latter depending on choices at the start of the game. Additionally, Portable opens an entire roomful of bonus bosses during the final month, presided over by Margaret from Persona 4; most of these are harder variations on the Full Moon bosses with vastly increased stats and other limiting conditions for each fight.
Defeat all of those, and you fight Margaret herself. The title screen theme of FES is a rather melancholy piano instrumental. The credits theme for epilogue chapter The Answer is a cheerful, vocal remix of it. The protagonist is listening to a remix of the game's main theme in the opening, muffled from his headphones.
For the final boss, the song reappears in high-quality glory. The school year begins and ends with Mitsuru giving a speech to the student body. She remarks on this similarity during the second speech: When I first addressed you from this podium, I spoke to you all about seizing opportunity while you had the chance.
The first few days of the game have Yukari and Mitsuru telling you to go to bed, stating you must be tired. Cue to the end of the game after you beat Nyx where the game beats you over the head with text boxes and characters saying you look exhausted and that you need to go to bed.
Near the beginning of the game, a text box says "The gentle spring sunlight is warm. Boss in Mook Clothing: The Shadows blocking your way on the "checkpoint" areas of Tartarus which are also referred by the Mission Control as "powerful Shadows". They are basically more powerful than the "purple slimes" of the current block as mentioned below in the Elite Mooks entry.
But they do take the appearance of the regular mooks you can encounter in the tower, albeit larger, with a higher health pool, stronger abilities, and more resistances.
The final boss' theme is a hard rock remix of the Velvet Room theme, and the Post-Final Boss has the rap remix of "Burn My Dread" first heard in the intro cutscene. Going to the bathroom isn't necessary, strictly speaking, but doing so has a chance of giving you a better Condition. Break Them by Talking: Takaya does this to the S.
Early on in the FES rerelease, the protagonist is asked to inspect a broken component in the operations room. There's nothing the player can actually fix, and it's instead a setup for the player to access the video recordings that were added in FES.
Near the end, after the final recording is accessed, Aigis mentions that she found and fixed the problem. You can't progress past certain floors throughout Tartarus until the necessary plot-related events occur. Lampshaded by Mission Controlwho note that they can see the path to the next floor but can't help you past the barrier. Some members of the faculty are like this, with the others just being Butterfly of Death and Rebirth: Appears every now and then, most notably with the butterfly who according to Word of God is Philemon in the opening.
Many of the choices and the story itself, for that matter run on this principle. Inverted in a minor conversation with an unnamed NPC who wants you to pass on a Christmas present to one of your teammates. Your options in that case are "No", "I refuse", or "Absolutely not".
Inverted during the full moon in July. You have to refuse to give in to the Lovers telling you to act on your desires in order to advance the story. If you don't enter Tartarus within the first 10 days of being recruited, Mitsuru will personally make you go with the group automatically. The Nanjo and Kirijo Groups were once one and the same. Discussed in-game, as you're told that it takes a very high level of concentration to summon a persona, so it's likely names are called to maintain focus.
Everyone but Koromaru, for obvious reasons has multiple lines to choose from before summoning. The series gives each player character a Canon Name in expanded material and adaptations, but also distinguishes them by a title from the third game onwards "The Protagonist" for Persona 3, "Main Character" for Persona 4 and "Joker" for Persona 5.
Can't Drop the Hero: There's the "contract" thing with Igor Also solidified by the plot as Death living inside the protagonist is the reason why the twelve Shadow Arcanas are appearing in the city again. Whomever is acting as Mission Control during battle, though Fuuka is by far the worse offender. At the dorm, Akihiko is usually the one to explain tactics and provide "As You Know" snippets.
Cast from Hit Points: The Persona physical attacks work like this. Junpei's reliance on these kinds of attacks make it very hard to keep him alive. He get's better when he receives his Ultimate Persona though, as he can regenerate health per turn. Cast From Life Span: As stated in the above trope, the Great Seal does this to the main character. Caught in the Bad Part of Town: The protagonist, Yukari, and Junpei at one point investigate the back alleys of the Port Island Station area, against the protests of Junpei who knows that's where all the delinquents hang out.
They get into a tight spot with said delinquents but then are saved by Jerk with a Heart of Gold Shinjiro. Memento Moria Latin phrase meaning " remember you'll die some day ," is a recurring theme that appears again and again throughout the story. Almost all of the main cast and no few supporting characters have had some kind of personal experience with death, often in the form of dead parents or family members.
The theme may also overlap with Sacrifice, as the three characters who died purposely gave up their lives protecting someone. Shinjiro takes a bullet for Ken partway through the game to redeem himself for accidentally killing Ken's mother. Chidori uses her persona's power to "emit life" and gives Junpei her life to revive him from a gunshot wound to the chest. She dies in the process. And finally the Protagonist makes a Heroic Sacrifice at the end to prevent the world from ending. Death as pertaining to the thirteenth Arcana, Death.
Meaning, spiritual death more than physical.
Persona 3 - Wikipedia
The story has to do with the various ways, big and small, it may become difficult for a person to want to keep on living. This factors in to not just the main story, but every single social link, even if some of the "reasons to desire death" may seem pretty trivial. The game's message is that those reasons are still important, and a person needs to confront and overcome them And friendship helps a great deal with this.
Some symptoms of the Apathy Syndrome include the inability to move, feed, or take care of one's self, similar to the instances of a clinically depressed person who forgets the value of personal hygiene.
In this game, the act of summoning a Persona is similar to a suicidal action - you, shooting yourself in the head. Surprisingly present, considering the modern setting of the game. It consists of shoulder-length gloves, thigh-high boots and The female protagonist, Mitsuru, and Yukari can equip it, though the latter two are very reluctant to do so. Male party members are visibly shaken when the female protagonist tries to talk to them while wearing it.
If the male party member happens to be her lover, they will get angry at her for wearing that outfit in public namely around the other party members. Not as gratuitous as other Role Playing Gamesbut some of the Full Moon Operations prevent some party members from fighting the boss.
Yukari is locked out of your party for the June full moon boss, Junpei is locked out of the September boss, and Shinjiro and Ken are locked out of the October boss. Most of these are plot-related, namely Junpei getting captured by Chidori the night of the September operation.

Edogawa, a teacher obsessed with magic explains the significance of the Major Arcana of the tarot about halfway through the game.
This becomes at least marginally important when the Final Boss states that Death, the 13th Arcana, represents the end. However, as the teacher explained way back when, Death is merely a change, not the end, and there are another 8 Major Arcana after Death, which allows the protagonist to use the true final arcana, The World, to defeat Nyx.
During the early portions of the game, there are cutscenes which involve the protagonist and later Junpei walking home along the different areas of the game that you can visit later on. Several NPCs also stand out from the rest of the generic character models, because they will be your Social Links.
True, but none of those pretend to be anything other than what they are, and players who are aware of the Social Link mechanic would naturally see any character they meet as a potential link.
A better example is Ikutsuki, a conspicuously inoffensive character who is introduced early on, does next to nothing of note for much of the game he's one of the few characters who fails to exhibit any obvious signs of a Dark and Troubled Pastand surprises absolutely no one when he turns out to be The Man Behind the Man.
In FES you can see most Social Link characters as well as Akihiko being pestered by fangirls during your character's first walks from the school to the dorm. You can also meet all your school Social Links on the first day of school, and even talk to them.
Yukari and her Evoker appear briefly in a couple of shots in the first anime cutscene of the game. There's also a non-character example: This track later plays as a proper BGM rather than being all muffled and distorted during the final battle with Nyx.
Of course, the fact that they gave him a Character Portrait clued many people into his role as a future protagonist before the new game was even announced. Early in the game, two of your schoolmates mention the type of sport they participate into; Archery for Yukari and Boxing for Akihiko. Their hobby becomes their fighting style when they later join you in battles. Junpei is also hinted to be playing baseball as during his Crtical Hit Animation, he swings his sword like a baseball bat while shouting "Home run!
Maiko will initiate this with the male protagonist if you maxed her Social Link. If you've established multiple romantic ties, you'll get multiple invitations.

Tatsumi Port Island, the main setting for the game and where all of the action takes place. Some allusions are relevant to the characters, some not so much. The more significant examples follow: The protagonist's Persona, Orpheus. The greatest poet and lyre player of his day, Orpheus descended into Tartarus the land of the dead to rescue his beloved wife Eurydice from death, playing music so beautiful that it even charmed Hades and Persephone. He is eventually killed for, among other things, preaching against human sacrifice.
All that remained of him was his head, which floated down the river Lesbos. In the game, all but the Persona's head is prosthetic, and Orpheus' story relates to the protagonist from their shared love of music and journey into Tartarus. He is usually depictated as slumbering in his mother's arms, but also has been described as a black figure with wings and a sword sheathed at his belt; with his in-game portrayal matching the latter with the coffins in place of standard wings. While he was initially viewed as a merciless and indiscriminate figure in the myths, he eventually became more associated with gentle passings.
Fitting considering the Protaganist's relation to death and its Arcana, and how his eventual death was peaceful in the end.
