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. ========================================================= 3.Gameplay ========================================================= 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 Event ========================================================= 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. Dungeons ========================================================= 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. Normal- Regular difficulty. Like Persona 3's Normal. Hard- Monster are much more menacing.

You aren't suppose to win anyway. First Encounter April 15 Yousuke 's Shadow HP:300 SP:200 Weak:Elec 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 Weak:Wind 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 Null:Light 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 Weak:Ice 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 Castle King of Contradictions HP:1600 SP:500 Absorb:Fire 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 Absorb:Ice Strong:Fire Tough Guy HP:800 SP:700 Null:Light , Dark Absorb:Physical Strong:Fire 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 battle. 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 alone. Opera House ========================================================= Acolasia snake HP:999 SP:148 Null:Light , Dark Weak:Fire 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.

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 Weak:Ice Null:Light , Dark This boss can be extremely easy, if you bring in a ice user.

Void Quest ========================================================= First Encounter Void Quest 7th Chapter Killing Hand HP:885 SP:100 Weak:Fire Godhand HP:284 SP:238 Weak:Wind 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 HP:1400 Mitsuo's Shadow HP:4000 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. Secret laboratory ========================================================= 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.
