* BassoProfundo: Following his recast in Japanese, Igor's voice has gone from his impish, high pitch voice, to an extremely deep reverberating thunder, while still soft-spoken, of a voice.

* DemotedToExtra: His Japanese actor [[AuthorExistenceFailure lost his life to illness]] prior to ''Anime/Persona4TheAnimation'', so all of his lines for Persona-related anime and ''Arena'' are recycled from the original game. As a result, he comes across as little more than a quiet mentor, who's only really there to serve as a figurehead while Margaret slowly takes over as the BigGood. He, in fact, disappears from the Velvet Room in ''Q'', which is actually what kickstarts the plot. Whether his reappearance in ''5'' (which does not seem to feature Margaret at all) heralds recasting remains to be seen.

A notorious BonusBoss found in ''VideoGame/{{Persona 3}}'' and ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'', including their {{Updated Rerelease}}s, the AnimeOfTheGame and ''VideoGame/PersonaQShadowOfTheLabyrinth''. His Arcana card is "Death", and he's based off the GrimReaper. His face is shrouded in bandages, with only one ominous yellow eye to see its surroundings.

His face is shrouded in bandages, with only one ominous yellow eye to see its surroundings. \n Common to all his appearances is that [[NintendoHard he's very worthy of his title]], able to resist and use every element in the game and [[ArtificialBrilliance punish you if you try to use that against him]] by spamming [[NonElemental Megidola and Megidoalon]], being immune to the OneHitKill Light and Dark elements, and in general [[UpToEleven being incredibly hard while being in an Atlus game]].



He reappears in ''Persona 4'', but only on your second playthrough. In Magatsu Inaba/Mandala, the Reaper can be found in ordinary chests; upon examination, the Protagonist is forewarned that a powerful force dwells within the chest. Should the Protagonist choose to open it, the Reaper will attack the Protagonist, engaging the party to a battle. Like its previous incarnation, the Reaper can be challenged multiple times, as long as the Protagonist manages to locate the treasure chest he dwells within. He will only drop a character's weapon if they are in the team that fights him, so you can re-organize the party every time you fight him if you want to get every character's weapon.

* TheLastOfTheseIsNotLikeTheOthers: A meta example. Just about every major antagonist in the ''Persona'' 'verse is born from the Collective Unconsciousness, shaped by the thoughts and desires of man; Philemon and Nyarlathotep in particular are born from their best and worst aspects, respectively. Nyx, on the other hand, is a complete outsider, not unlike [[spoiler:Aradia]] in ''ShinMegamiTenseiIIINocturne.'' However, she did play a major role in shaping human awareness and thoughts during the dawn of civilization, and she responds to humanity's desires (for death, in her case).

* BigGood: Takes over the role left by Philemon after the events of ''Persona 2'', spurring the protagonists on their journeys and providing help while always remaining in the backseat to look over things.

* TheIgor: A heroic(?) version of this archetype.
* ManOfWealthAndTaste: A non-evil version. The Velvet Room changes form every game, depending on the guest he looks after. It has changed from a classical nightclub, to an elevator, to a limousine, and now a prison. Say what you will about Igor's taste in assistants, the man has awesome personal taste when it comes to making the room look classy, elegant, and mysterious. Everyone is also dressed in an impeccable uniform, except Marie. One almost wonders where he fits in among Kei Nanjou and Mitsuru Kirijo. Makes one wonder who his tailor is...or even what his tailor is.

* CompositeCharacter: Her power in P1 comes from the movers and shakers of the main plot: Kandori and Maki.



* BigBad: Of P3. Not so much as of the UpdatedRerelease though, which reveals Erebus is the real problem.



* BigBad: Of P3. Not so much as of the Answer, which reveals Erebus is the real problem.
* EldritchAbomination: [[AllThereInTheManual Official fanbooks]] state she's an alien being who wandered the universe, destroying any world she visited. This is especially notable on how she needs avatars to manifest in the physical world, and how those avatars tend to look like.

* MeaningfulName: Nyx in Greek Myth is an EldritchAbomination who is likened to a woman who gave birth to many, many things, included among them Death and Friendship. It parallels the fact that Nyx here also created Death and various Arcanas to the world, and is referred to as the Mother.
