Main Character 
Seiyuu: Daisuke Namikawa 
Persona: Izanagi of the Fool Arcanum, 
Izanagi Ookami of the World Arcanum
Weapon Type: Swords

Every Persona game has a silent protagonist and this game is no different. 
Our main character recently moved to a rural area to live with his Uncle.
A transfer student at Yasogami High School, he quickly becomes friends
with Chie, Yukiko and Yousuke upon encountering them. He starts with the 
Persona Izanagi. 

Yousuke Hanamura 
Seiyuu: Showtaro Morikubo 
Persona: Jiraiya, 
Susano-o of the Magician Arcanum
Weapon Type: Knifes, Kunais.
Our protagonist meets up with him on the first day to school. 
Yousuke is often seen to have problems with his bike and other 
scenarios from Chie for comic relief. When Yousuke is trapped
in Mayonaka TV his true fear  growing up and how others view him
as immature is exposed. Yousuke starts with Persona Jiraiya, which 
eventally evolves into Susano.

Chie Satonaka  
Seiyuu: Yui Horie 
Persona: Tomoe Gozen 
Suzuka Gongen of the Chariot Arcanum

One of the first friends that the Main Character quicky befriends. 
She is an upbeat girl that has an obession with Kung Fu. She
is also best friends with Yukiko and often gets into arguments with Yousuke. 
Chie even attacked Yousuke over a Jackie Chan DVD.
Her biggest fear is that she is living under Yukiko's shadow. She eventally
gets her own Persona, Tomoe Gozen, which eventually evolves
into Suzuka Gongen.

Yukiko Amagi
Seiyuu: Ami Koshimizu 
Persona: Konohana-sakuya
Amaterasu of the Priestess Arcanum

Like Chie, Yukiko is one of the first people to become friends with the
Main Character upon his arrival at Yasogami High School. 

Kanji Tatsumi 
Seiyuu: Tomokazu Seki ss
Persona: Take-Mikazuchi, 
Rokuten-Ma? of the Emperor Arcanum

A delinquent student that often gets into fights. His family owns 
the Dye Shop at the Shopping District. Despite getting into numerous fights, 
Kanji's greatest fear is questioning his sexuality.

Rise Kujikawa 
Seiyuu: Rie Kugimiya 
Persona: Himiko,
Kanzeon of the Lovers Arcanum

Rise used to be one of the more popular idols in Japan. In Persona 4 
she is first seen on an advertisement at the start of the game, but for
unknown reasons, Rise quit her job and transfered to Yasogami High 
School as a freshman. When it is Rise's turn in Mayonaka TV, it is determined
she is most afraid of being treated like a sex symbol. When Kuma becomes 
playable, Rise will be the support character from then on.

Persona 4 plays very similarly to Persona 3, and you will have no problem
adapting to the gameplay if you have played Persona 3 before. In this section,
I've only included mostly a list of changes that have affected the gameplay 
in Persona 4

The Commu (Social Links) system is still in this game, but unlike Persona 3, 
Commus can now also boost the status and abilities of a Persona in Battle.

The game now includes a weather system.

You no longer you need to go to dungeons at night, as all dungeon activity
is now done after school. 

This game has added 2 new status parameters, Communication and Generosity.
Request are no longer made from the Velvet room, as all requests are
acquired by talking to NPCs.

Magaret (replacement for Elizabeth) will ask for Persona Fusion
requests only. 

People trapped in Mayonaka TV (dungeon related) must be saved
before the next foggy day (usually 2 weeks).  

You must find clues about the victim after watching the Mayonaka TV 
before you can enter the dungeon again.


There are now multiple dungeons with a few changes from P3. HP is 
no longer recovered upon return, as it is now restored by paying a certain fee 
to Kitsune (really expensive), Which is available when Kanji's dungeon is open.

Access points are no longer availible. In order to leave
a dungeon, you wil need to either walk all the way back 
to entrance, use a Kaereiru, or find the save point on the
last floor.

Rare treasure chests are now locked and require a treasure key
to be opened.

The Reaper can only be found on a 2nd playthrough.

Battle Related 

You can now control your party members by selecting the Tactics Command, 
and choosing the last option.

The ONE MORE system is back but with a few tweaks. You don't lose 
a turn when getting back on your feet, neither does the enemy.
But if you critical or use the enemy weakness when the enemy
is down they will recieve the status faint and will lose a turn.

When an enemy is knockdown, sometimes it will randomly trigger
a special move from party members.

Party members will now cover you if you're in danger.

The guard command is added. It prevents knockdown from weakness.

The physical attributes are now merge to 1 instead of 3 different ones.

Analyze now only tells HP& MP and abilities (once you have Hi-Analyze). 

Shuffle time now only offer 3 cards. Persona , Blank and Nothing.
When taking the nothing card you will receive nothing after the battle
is over.

A new feature has been added called Arcana Chance. Each time after
shuffle time it will give you an Arcana card that can give out positve
or negative effects depending on your luck.

Battle Tactics 
Let them decide   | Party Members will do whatever they want.
Full Frontal      | Party Members will go attack with all their might.
Save SP           | Party Members will try to save as much SP as possible.
Save your power   | Party Members will try to save as much HP as possible.
Direct Command    | Party Members will be under your control.
No Change         | Party Members will act the way they were before.
Persona Evolutions
Unlike Persona 3, the Persona does not evolve unless you have maxed 
out their commu(Social Links). The persona evolution in this only 
provide resistance to elements. For some characters such as Rise 
she gains more abilities as you rank up on her commu.

4.Main Walkthrough
When you start new game it will offer you the choice to
select the mode to play in.

Easy- Enemies are weaker and you'll also get 10 of these items
that are allow you to continue.

First Encounter April 11

???: There's is nothing you can do in this battle.
You aren't suppose to win anyway.

First Encounter April 15

Yousuke 's Shadow

HP:300 SP:200

This is your first real boss. Just keep using Zio
to knock him down. If you HP gets low use the healing
items you have. 

Yukiko's Castle

First Encounter Yukiko's Castle 2F

Chie's Shadow 

HP:1000 SP:500

Switch Yousuke to direct command. And use Garu to knock
her down. Then use All-out attack. After this Chie will
cast green shield on herself which protects againist wind
attacks. You should then go for all physical attack.
When Chie is about to lose her shield she will cast Mazio
which can knock down Yousuke, so make sure you have Yousuke
guard when this happens. 

First Encounter Yukiko's Castle 5F

Conquest Knight
HP:430 SP:87

This boss can kill you almost instantly if your levels are low.
So the first thing to do is cast Rakunda with your main 
character to lower his attack power. After that keep spaming
magic and keep a decent amount HP and victory shall be yours.

First Encounter Yukiko's Castle 8F

Recommended Level 13 to 16

Yukiko's Shadow
HP:1050 SP:800

Prince Charming
HP:850  SP:450

Bringing a fire immune Persona makes this battle a lot easier.
Anyways Yukiko doesn't do anything until she lose some health 
first. She starts by only casting Agi on your party members. 
Nothing to be afraid of except for Chie because of her weakness 
on fire. Anyways she'll summon a small guy named Prince charming.
You don't have to kill Charming , you just need to focus
on Yukiko. When Yukiko lost about 35% of her health or so
she will begin to cast this nasty all fire attack. This can kill Chie 
and also give Yukiko an extra turn. So make sure you Guard with Chie.

First Encounter Yukiko's Castle 8F After finishing Yukiko's 

King of Contradictions
HP:1600 SP:500
Null:Wind, Dark and Light

The miniboss for the Yukiko's Castle. Anyways this
boss isn't all too deadly but however if you're too
low level, his Rolling anger can kill your entire 
party instantly. If you're able to survive this
attack you should have no problem on this battle.

The Steamy Bath House 
Fighting Gigas
HP:928 SP:100
Null:Light , Dark

First Encounter The Steamy Bath House 11F

Kanji's Shadow

HP:2000 SP:1000
Null:Light , Dark

Nice Guy
HP:800 SP:700
Null:Light , Dark

Tough Guy
HP:800 SP:700
Null:Light , Dark

Kanji's boss battle can be annoying. What i suggest is
focus on defeating Tough guy first. After that focus
all on Nice guy, because nice guy will cast nothing
but status boost on Kanji which will be menace towards 
your team. Remember when Kanji use charge his next 
attack is most likely going to be Rolling Anger. If
you're unlucky you can be killed instantly. So Guard 
with the main character to ensure you don't lose this

Nelson's Strategy

Get rid of Nice Guy first, because of his support skills.
Then after that just focus on Kanji and leave Tough Guy 

Opera House 
Acolasia snake
HP:999 SP:148
Null:Light , Dark

Really easy boss battle, use agi to knock him down
and use all out attack on him. Make sure your Hp
is high.

Rise's Shadow
HP:2800 SP:800
Null:Light , Dark

An easy boss battle. Just keep spamming magic, 
and keep your HP high. Eventally when her health
drops to 40% she will use this ability that will
prevent your party members to hit her. Then try
to stay alive for 3 turns and an cutscene will 

Kuma's Shadow
HP:5000 SP:1500
Null:Light , Dark

For Kuma's Boss battle i recommend you to have Ice 
immune persona (Unicorn works). Because Kuma has
a pattern of using Concentrate then casting Mafubula
be sure to guard , especially if Yukiko is in the party. 
Eventally he'll lift his hand to make an energy ball.
Attack him on the first turn and when its on the 2nd turn 
be sure to Guard.Repeat this pattern till Kuma is defeated.

Bonus Boss

Setsuna's Children

HP:4500 SP:1000
Null:Light , Dark

This boss can be extremely easy, if you bring in a ice user.
Not only this boss is weak againist ice attacks, but All-out 
attack does full damage on him. Keep repeating this 
and heal when he does Herculean Strike on you.

Void Quest

First Encounter Void Quest 7th Chapter

Killing Hand 

HP:885 SP:100

HP:284 SP:238

Not much of a pushover, the killing hand is weak againist fire.
but on his first turn he will call for for Godhand for help. Kill 
the God hand first or else he`ll heal the killing hand or cast 
other support abilities. After defeating the God Hand, focus all your 
might on the Killing Hand.

First Encounter Void Quest Last Chapter (10F)

The Guided Brave Warrior Mitsuo

Mitsuo's Shadow

This boss battle can be rather annoying. First you will have to
fight a 8bit version Mitsuo. Mitsuo will use 2 commands at a time,
either attack or item and when he's resurrected he can use magic. 
When he use item it`ll be a bomb the cause the status Frail
( Lose SP every turn). Be sure to able to cast all defense boost.
Or lower his attack power with  your persona. After destroying
Brave Warrior Mitsuo, you will see a knockdown Mitsuo Shadow. 
Attack him with an all out attack. Anyways Mitsuo Shadow will 
cast an ability that cancel out all your status boost if you have any 
on. Mitsuo has a pattern of attacking you with either ice, electricity 
or wind on your entire party follow with a physical attack. If Mitsuo 
gets ONE MORE from knocking down your party members, he'll use
Megido which cause roughly 180 to 200 damage to your entire party.
Eventually he'll try to summon parts of the 8bit Mitsuo, The attack
pattern will change again. He'll now cast Devil touch on your party
member follow by an instant kill skill (Only works on the characters
that is in fear condition). If you deal enough damage to him before his 
whole body is reconstructed, Mitsuo will be knockdown. If Mitsuo
revives his 8bit counterpart, you'll have to defeat him again just to
hurt Mitsuo Shadow.

First Encounter Secret laboratory B6F

Overwhelming Giant

HP:3000 SP:3000
Null:Light, Dark

The Overwhelming Giant has a repeating pattern of casting
charge then casting Herculean Strike. So make sure you bring
in a user that can cast Mediarama to keep your HP high or 
a reflect Physical Persona. When his HP is down to 25% he'll
self Destruct in 3 turns (Don't worry you still get full exp
even when he self destructs). Overall not to difficult.
