In ''Persona 5'', the Reaper can be found in Momentos in a similar capacity to his role in ''Persona 3'', appearing if you stay on one level too long.

* SpiritAdvisor: More so in ''Persona 1'' and ''2''; by the time ''Persona 3'' comes about, he doesn't even bother to make a direct appearance, though WordOfGod states that the blue butterflies in ''3'' and ''4'' are supposed to represent him watching over the protagonists. A blue butterfly also appears in ''Persona 5'' at the beginning of the game during the Protagonist's awakening and after the Velvet Room disappears during the climax, its purpose accomplished--the protagonist notably watches it flutter by. Later subverted when you find out that the Butterfly now represents Lavenza, the recombined Caroline and Justine.

* AllPowerfulBystander: While he's not implied to be as strong as Philemon (who created Igor in the first place), he is suggested to be incredibly powerful in his own right despite solely being a passive observer and helper. Elizabeth notes in ''VideoGame/PersonaQShadowOfTheLabyrinth'' that after Theodore and her temporarily take over the Velvet Room while he is gone, they are barely able to keep the place stable and that it's his power alone that keeps the place functioning for guests and the attendants that reside there. In ''Persona 5'', it's revealed that he even has the power to create life; specifically, he's Morgana's creator.

Added DiffLines:

* TheWorfEffect: Despite there being no indication of exactly how powerful he is besides being stronger than his attendants, Igor and Lavenza were defeated before ''Persona 5'' by the fake Igor, who imprisoned him in the deepest depths as the sole prisoner of the most guarded cell and the Velvet Room itself merged with Mementos.


Added DiffLines:

* OrderIsNotGood: Zen mentions in ''Persona Q'' that the Reaper is an agent of providence sent to execute those who threaten the cosmic order. He does this by [[MurderIsTheBestSolution killing them]]. One of the materials he drops, Death's Order, also reflects this.

* AscendedExtra: While in previous games he usually only dealt with fusion, Persona 5 has made him the Conspirator of the Fool Arcana, but this is a [[SubvertedTrope subversion]]. The "Igor" seen throughout that game is actually an evil imposter, with the ''real'' one only making his appearance at the very end.

* DemotedToExtra: His Japanese actor [[AuthorExistenceFailure lost his life to illness]] prior to ''Anime/Persona4TheAnimation'', so all of his lines for ''Persona 3/4''-related anime and ''Arena'' are recycled from the original game. As a result, he comes across in those works as little more than a quiet mentor, who's only really there to serve as a figurehead while Margaret fills in as the BigGood. He in fact completely disappears from the Velvet Room in ''Q'', which is actually what kickstarts the plot. In ''5'', he finally returns to a major role, [[TheOtherDarrin now played by Masane Tsukayama]].
** [[SubvertedTrope Or rather not]]. It turns out "Igor" in ''P5'' is actually Yaldabaoth, the Demiurge in disguise. The trope ends up being played straight as real Igor returns at ''the very end'', once again voiced by Isamu Tanonaka's recycled voice clips.

* TheUnfought: In the games, we have fought Igor's assistants and even his boss Philemon, but we have never faced Igor himself in combat. Judging by how he's the series's resident fusion master, it might be for [[StoryBreakerPower a sound reason]]. He did teach the Velvet Siblings nearly all he knows. The Igor you battle in Persona 5 is a fake.

* AffablyEvil: She does not hate humans or even dislikes them-in fact, she's usually described as a "maternal" entity. She's just following her nature and job as the GrimReaper, and as shown when she fights you as the Nyx Avatar, she shows a deep understanding of and compassion for humans.
