** Played unromantically later on. Yukiko took refuge from the rain under the same gazebo while dressed in her work kimono when an unknown high school student (Mitsuo) suddenly appeared behind her and insistently asked her out despite of her refusals and obvious uneasiness, the rain and her confining clothes making it difficult for her to simply leave. The weather and the hour also made it unlikely for anyone else to show up but somebody did arrive (Shirou and Chie, going home after a trip into the TV World) and made Mitsuo leave.

** {{Discussed|Trope}}. Yosuke outright asks Shirou if he's [[{{Glamour}} "some sort of innate magecraft sorcery"]] after witnessing Chie giving "probably the most over the top {{moe}} reactions possible" when he offered to help her studying. Yosuke is [[WrongGenreSavvy mistaking this for]] [[CluelessChickMagnet an entirely different trope]].
** ''Fate/Reach Out'' incorporates the "Charm" StandardStatusEffects from ''Videogame/Persona3's'' battle mechanics. [[MiniBoss Amorous Snake]] from Rise's dungeon successfully inflicted the ailment on [[spoiler:Yosuke]], who almost managed to stab [[spoiler:Yukiko]] in the back while under its control. [[spoiler:For just deserts, one's of Shirou's Personas -- [[HornyDevils Lilim]] -- did the same with Rain Wheel, commanding the enemy Shadow into running over Amorous Snake for the party's sake.]]

* CrazyPrepared: {{Downplayed|Trope}} with Rise. After working as an IdolSinger in high-demand, she got used to be constantly on the move and to always carry what she calls the "essentials" in a trip. Fortunately for Chie and Yukiko at the school campout, this includes a zipped-up bag full of silicone earplugs (for Hanako's snoring) and some snacks and bottle water (greatly appreciated after [[LethalChef they utterly ruined their group's dinner]]).

* HandsomeLech: As mentioned in CasanovaWannabe, Yosuke is a would be ladies' man, the problem is canon "pure disappointment when he opens his mouth" which immediately removes any real suitors and would even mess up with shallow girls as noted by both Pixie and Rise.

** In the same vein ''Videogame/{{Persona 4}}'' [[DeconstructedCharacterArchetype deconstructs the protagonists' Character Archetypes]], this story does the same with [[spoiler:Taiga Fujimura]] and shows some of the inherent issues lurking just below such a typical anime-like personality if translated to real life.

** As it happened in [[VisualNovel/FateStayNight canon]], recurrent conflict in the story stems from the fact that people surrounding Shirou only slowly come to realize how truly distorted and borderline ''in''human his ChronicHeroSyndrome really is. Any reader who previously played the ''Unlimited Blade Works'' route of the game may appreciate exactly how fitting and plain ''wrong'' is for a person [[spoiler:with an unique and highly-functional personality disorder that makes him derive happiness only by helping others, especially by saving them from immediate danger,]] like Shirou to be in the shoes of the protagonist of VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}.

* DreamWalker: Shirou experiences dreams involving his active Social Links just like the PlayerCharacter in ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}''. In this story and to his great chagrin, his Personas of the matching Arcana can see and remember all the rather silly/embarrassing stuff that tends to happen in them, like him rescuing Taiga from a Kotomine-styled dungeon and Chie from a [[Characters/PokemonGenerationIIIWailmerToDeoxys Flygon]] ([[NotMakingThisUpDisclaimer really]]).

** In the [[VideoGame/{{Persona 4}} game]], bringing a Persona of the matching Arcana to a Social Link event speeds up its development. In this story, this is because said Persona can actually speak and advise Shirou in his head or, as it happened with Pixie in chapter 20, let him know when he's messing things up.
** When the Investigation Team tried to fight the [[BonusBoss Contrarian King]] without Shirou, things got so bad that [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere they had to scram]]. [[FridgeBrilliance This makes a lot of sense]] once you consider how the battle plays out in the game: Contrarian King is immune to wind, absorbs fire and resists physical attacks, meaning that the only way a Yosuke/Chie/Yukiko party of that level could efficiently hurt him is Chie's ice attacks, which the boss is weak to in the UpdatedRerelease. ''Videogame/{{Persona 4}}'' being an Creator/{{Atlus}} [[NintendoHard game]], this is in fact a bad strategy because Chie's Persona is a MagicallyIneptFighter with a low Magic stat and Contrarian King's AI is coded to use his ThatOneAttack more frequently if knocked down by a weakness.

* InstantCosplaySurprise: Doubles as a ShoutOut. Before the fight against Shadow Yukiko, she uses her powers to morph Shirou, Yosuke and Chie's clothes into something more princely: [[Anime/CodeGeass Zero (sans mask), Suzaku (pre-R2) and Cornelia]]'s outfit and dress uniforms, respectively. Also a bit of an InJoke among VideoGame/{{Persona 4}} fans, given that most of [[RelationshipVoiceActor Japanese voice actors had roles in both series]].

* NoGuyWantsAnAmazon: As in ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'', Chie thinks poorly of herself because of this trope. Unlike canon, Shirou makes clear from the start, albeit in his own InnocentlyInsensitive way, that he doesn't consider her unfeminine or less attractive because of her {{tomboy}} traits. [[spoiler:This leads her to harbor a crush on him much earlier than what is possible in the game, feelings that her Shadow is all too happy to act on, making the confrontation a whole lot more complicated.]]

* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: An offscreen example. While Shirou visited Fuyuki for Golden Week, the rest of the Investigation Team went to the TV World had a run-in with the [[GoddamnedBoss Contrarian]] [[ThatOneAttack King]], the BonusBoss of Yukiko's Castle. Quickly realizing that they had little to no chance of defeating it, they opted for a TacticalWithdrawal. It doubles as an InJoke to Videogame/{{Persona 4}} players (see GameplayAndStoryIntegration above for the reason).

* ActuallyPrettyFunny: After getting into a FunbagAirbag accident, Shirou is berated by the busty girl in question who accused him of possibly being a stalker from her old school in Tokyo. Shirou snarks back that if asked he will "tell the jury that he got lost in the Aoyama Twin Towers"[[note]]formally known as the Shin-Aoyama Building, "Aoyama Twin" are two identical 300ft tall office buildings and a distinctive feature of Minato-ku, Tokyo[[/note]], which made her smile for a moment (probably it helped that he [[AccidentalTruth accidentally got her surname right]]) before remembering she was supposed to be upset with the AccidentalPervert.

* AndTheRest: At first Rise had trouble remembering there ''was'' more people than just Shirou who came to her rescue. A DefiedTrope soon after as she realized this and made a point of befriending the entire Investigation Team.



* BromanticFoil: Yosuke as in canon. {{Deconstruct|ion}}ed here in that hanging out with a CluelessChickMagnet like Shirou who unwittingly hogs most of the girls' attention isn't fun at all, prompting Yosuke to try harder in order to not be passed over, [[YouWereTryingTooHard which doesn't really help him]] as it was the case with his [[EpicFail "Operation Up Close and Personal"]].



* BorrowedCatchphrase: Once Rise finds out that Morooka was mean to Shirou on his first day in Yasogami, she declares that the teacher is "is ''so'' on [her] shit list".

* CigaretteOfAnxiety: In chapter 33, Ryotaro felt he really needed a smoke after his only lead on the whereabout of then-missing Rise Kujikawa and potential breakthrough in the serial murder case was destroyed, and to make thing worse, every attempt to identify the amnesic Marie didn't pan out either. {{Subverted|Trope}} only because he was about to visit the latter at the hospital, which is a strictly non-smoking area.

* CuddleBug: Rise is more touchy-feely than Shirou is used his friends to be. The first time she hugged him and accidentally(?) caused a LoveYouAndEverybody moment, he briefly went into [[PostKissCatatonia "shutdown mode"]].



** In chapter 31, [[spoiler:Adachi "accidentally" taped over the street footage of the kidnapper taking an unconscious Rise into a van]]. Although unstated in the text, readers who played/watched ''Persona 4'' to the end know there's no way that didn't happened on purpose.



* FirstNameBasis:
** In the heat of the moment, Shirou called Rise by her first name as he reassured her that the Investigation Team was [[DeclarationOfProtection going to save her from her Shadow]], making quite an impression on her because people are usually only interested on "Risette". Afterwards he kept doing it without giving it much thought as it's the case with Sakura, which Rise took as her cue to call him "Shirou-kun" in return.
** It must be noted that a guy calling a girl by her given name or vice versa is [[UsefulNotes/JapaneseHonorifics a pretty big deal in Japan]] and it's usually done only between lovers or family members, something that Chie and Yukiko awkwardly pointed out to Rise at the campout. The fact the former idol not only was A-OK with this, but also considered being on first-name basis with Shirou a point of pride, didn't make Chie's self-esteem issues any favors.
* FirstPersonSmartass:
** Shirou in [[VisualNovel/FateStayNight the visual novel]], ''especially'' [[VisualNovel/FateHollowAtaraxia the sequel]]. Increasingly {{Subverted|Trope}} here as hanging out with the Investigation Team and their colorful and [[HilarityEnsues silliness-prone]] personalities brings more and more of his snark from his narration to his dialogue.
** Being his "Other Selves", Shirou's Personas took after the guy and are a TalkingToThemself version of this trope, basically providing him with a whole mental peanut gallery of [[SnarkyNonHumanSideKick Snarky Non-Human Sidekicks]] that only he can hear in the real world.



** Teddie has a surprising good understanding of magecraft. He learned Reinforcement by watching and once he called magi "technologically repressed fuddy-duddies", which caught Shirou's attention because he never quite mentioned that trait of their culture around the bear.

* GagBoobs: [[TheCameo Izumi]] [[CrashIntoHello Aoyama]], prompting a very flustered Shirou who just [[AccidentalPervert acquainted himself]] [[ThanksForTheMammary with them]] [[FunbagAirbag face-first]] to remark "How do you have a ''spine''?".



* HeroWorshipper: Rise towards Shirou, who uniquely within the Investigation Team got to know him first when in full {{Determinator}} ChronicHeroSyndrome mode, which made quite the impression on her and she even privately called him "Hero-kun" before getting used to his name. Interestingly for this trope, Rise seems to admire Shirou ''because'' he tries to help people despite his shortcomings and not only as result of the CrowningMomentOfAwesome or three he pulled off while fighting her Shadow.



* HouseHusband: Yukiko remembered a dream of Shirou as this trope to her during the girls' SlumberParty at the school campout.



* LoveYouAndEverybody: Rise when thanking the Investigation Team for saving her life. She first dropped the L-bomb while hugging Shirou tightly, leaving him in [[PostKissCatatonia "shutdown mode"]] and visibly upsetting an envious Yosuke and a jealous Chie. Teddie then complained that he also helped and Rise proceeded to hug the bear too and soon after she pulled Yosuke, Chie and Yukiko into a tight GroupHug as well. Rise noticed their bafflement at her actions and explained that as "Risette" she was used to tell her fans that she "loved" them and thanked them for their support, prompting the four second-year students to relax.
-->'''Lilim:''' Aw phooey. She really is a damn tease.



* MagicEnhancement: Persona users receive a considerable buff to their physical abilities in the TV World, including strength, speed and reaction times. This is the reason why Yosuke fights like a ninja and Chie can kick a Shadow through a wall. Shirou combines it with Reinforcement magecraft to give himself SuperToughness.

The team refers to this as getting [[BuffySpeak "Personafied"]].



* NakedOnArrival: This is how [[spoiler:the amnesiac Marie]] is found by [[spoiler:Dojima and Adachi]] during the former's first appearance in the story, completely unlike canon [[spoiler:where her situation and ailment was only known to the protagonist, and much later on to the rest of the Investigation Team.]]

Played realistically because the very first thing the police detectives did was wrapping her situation in a blanket and ailment was only known drive her fast to the protagonist, and much later on to nearest hospital out of fear of her suffering of hypothermia.]]
* NarmCharm: An InUniverse example. [[spoiler:While Rise thought that Shirou's WhoAreYou speech during
the rest of the Investigation Team.battle against her Shadow ''should'' have been too sappy too be taken seriously by itself, his "pure honest conviction in his words" make her [[HopeBringer actually believe that she could be saved]].]]

* SmittenTeenageGirl: Rise seems to have got it worse for Shirou than she did for the protagonist in the game, and that's saying something considering that she was practically the latter's {{fangirl}}. PlayedWith somewhat that she's quite the extrovert and a [[TheSocialExpert people person]] and only stammers or gets visibly flustered around him when he catches her off-guard.



* SpitTake: Shirou didn't understand what Yosuke meant about having a girl "up close and personal" behind him as they rode his motorcycle, so Lilim spelled it out for him as he was drinking a glass of water. Cue this trope.



* VerbalTic: {{Subverted|Trope}}. The Persona Cu Sith prepends Shirou's name with the word "Cu", but this isn't an example of this trope. See GeniusBonus entry in the [[YMMV/FateReachOut YMMV page]] for the details.

* VerbalBackspace: Rise is upset with still having to carry Risette's troublesome baggage after leaving the showbiz and being unlucky enough to be thrown into the TV World. Then this happens:

'''Shirou:''' Rise?\\

* AccidentalTruth: Right after watching Shirou across the street getting along with a voluptuous unknown girl, an envious Yosuke sarcastically asks him if he had "another miraculous recovery or some bullshit luck" and somehow ended up copping a feel. [[AccidentalPervert Shirou]] [[FunbagAirbag guiltily]] [[ThanksForTheMammary winces]].
* ActuallyPrettyFunny: After getting into a FunbagAirbag accident, Shirou is berated by the busty girl in question who accused him of possibly being a stalker from her old school in Tokyo. Shirou snarks back that if asked he will "tell the jury that he got lost in the Aoyama Twin Towers"[[note]]formally known as the Shin-Aoyama Building, "Aoyama Twin" are two identical 300ft tall office buildings and a distinctive feature of Minato-ku, Tokyo[[/note]], which made her smile for a moment (probably it helped that he [[AccidentalTruth accidentally got her surname right]]) before remembering she was supposed to be upset with the AccidentalPervert.



* BorrowedCatchphrase: Once Rise finds out that Morooka was mean to Shirou on his first day in Yasogami, she declares that the teacher is "is ''so'' on [her] shit list".



* CigaretteOfAnxiety: In chapter 33, Ryotaro felt he really needed a smoke after his only lead on the whereabout of then-missing Rise Kujikawa and potential breakthrough in the serial murder case was destroyed, and to make thing worse, every attempt to identify the amnesic Marie didn't pan out either. {{Subverted|Trope}} only because he was about to visit the latter at the hospital, which is a strictly non-smoking area.



* CrazyPrepared: {{Downplayed|Trope}} with Rise. After working as an IdolSinger in high-demand, she got used to be constantly on the move and to always carry what she calls the "essentials" in a trip. Fortunately for Chie and Yukiko at the school campout, this includes a zipped-up bag full of silicone earplugs (for Hanako's snoring) and some snacks and bottle water (greatly appreciated after [[LethalChef they utterly ruined their group dinner]]).



* EpicFail: "Operation Up Close and Personal" manages to be even a bigger fiasco for Yosuke than in canon, which is impressive considering that his scooter ''doesn't'' get totalled this time around. Unlike Yu Narukami, Shirou saw his friend's plan for the waste of time it was and decided to shop around Okina Station and acquaint himself with the town's layout instead. Not only Yosuke made a bigger fool of himself standing alone by his [[InsistentTerminology "motorcycle"]], but also the next thing he knows of Shirou is when he catches sight of a cute and ''[[GagBoobs very]]'' [[GagBoobs endowed]] girl their age pushing a piece of paper into the redhead's hands and giving him a "call me" hand gesture.

* FoodAsBribe: Shirou treats Izumi Aoyama to udon after their AccidentalPervert moment in chapter 33. Her GrowlingGut didn't leave her with much room to refuse.



** Teddie has a surprising good understanding of magecraft. He learned Reinforcement by watching and once he called magi "technologically repressed fuddy-duddies", which caught Shirou's attention because he never quite mentioned that trait of their culture around the bear.



** Rise getting kidnapped and rescued before Kanji allowed her to enroll into Yasogami early enough to attend to the school campout. For his part Kanji opted for skipping it as he tried to in the game, and thanks to the fact he didn't miss three full weeks of school because of the TV World this time around, the teachers didn't force him to participate as in canon.

** Izumi Aoyama wanted to complain about Shirou's attempt to use FoodAsBribe against her, but her tummy accepted his invitation in her stead.



* HomoeroticSubtext: [[SubvertedTrope Sans the "sub-" part]]. With the characteristic subtlety of her kind, Shadow Yukiko outright stated that if Chie were her "prince", she'd be "willing to try something new". Everybody present, even ''[[ObliviousToLove Shirou]]'', turned to the real Yukiko for clarification but then Shadow Yukiko dismissed Chie as unfit for the role for reasons similar to the ones from canon plus what she learned from Shadow Chie's confessions (the latter due to the events of the altered timeline).

* LineOfSightName: The amnesiac Marie decided on that name for herself because Adachi compared the way how she suddenly appeared in front of his and Ryotaro's car in the middle of the night with the [[MirrorMonster "Bloody Mary"]] {{Urban Legend|s}}.



* MetaGuy: The Persona Lilim has shades of this. She considers [[CluelessChickMagnet Shirou's love life]] a "harem show" (her own words) and provides unsolicited commentaries when something HaremGenre-y happens.
-->'''Lilim:''' Oh yeah, the first ever conflict of the love polygon. This is gonna be ''good''.



* SchoolUniformsAreTheNewBlack: The story makes a convincing argument as to why the Investigation Team wears their school uniforms in the TV World. Shirou observes that most of their weapons can be smuggled into Junes either hidden in their baggy uniforms or school bags (his katana requires a special bag designed to carry a [[UsefulNotes/{{Kendo}} shinai]], though), and if they ever get asked about it, they can say they're from CramSchool.
* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: An offscreen example. While Shirou visited Fuyuki for Golden Week, the rest of the Investigation Team went to the TV World had a run-in with the [[GoddamnedBoss Contrarian]] [[ThatOneAttack King]], the BonusBoss of Yukiko's Castle. Quickly realizing that they had little to no chance of defeating it, they opted for a TacticalWithdrawal. It doubles as an InJoke to Videogame/{{Persona 4}} players (see GameplayAndStoryIntegration above for the reason).

Added DiffLines:

* SlumberParty: Rise insisted on having the outdoors version of a sleepover after sneaking into the Chie and Yukiko's tent during the school campout. Not even Hanako loudly snoring right next to them deterred her any.


Added DiffLines:

* WithFriendsLikeThese: Chie and Shirou sabotage Yosuke's attempt to make a good post-rescue first impression on Rise by repeating all the pick-up lines he considered using before fighting her Shadow but didn't get the chance to. It ends up working better that way because the interplay made Rise laugh and help her to relax around the team.
-->'''Yosuke:''' Ahahaha, they're such kidders! [[BlatantLies I didn't say that. At all. I never said any of that]].


Added DiffLines:

* YouJustToldMe: Naoto uses this trick on [[spoiler:Rise Kujikawa]] as confirmation that this person was in fact [[spoiler:the second survivor of the Serial Murder Case]] but is trying to keep it hidden. RealityEnsues because, unlike in MysteryLiterature, this only pissed off the other party and the private detective was unable to get any further information after that.

** Shirou, when he crashed trips and crashes into Izumi Aoyama [[TheCameo Izumi]] [[GagBoobs Aoyama]] [[FunbagAirbag face-first.]]face-first]]. His knee-jerk reaction is to push himself away from her, which of course [[ThanksForTheMammary only makes things worse]].



* TheCameo: Izumi Aoyama from the Kickstarter game ''Harem Protagonist'' (which Kishou is writing for, and Izumi is the character he contributed most to) makes a brief appearance in Chapter 33.



** He tried to do "Operation Up Close and Personal" (aka Operation Babe Hunt 2.0 from ''Golden'') by himself after Shirou decided exploring Okina was a better use of his time. After failing miserably, he finds [[CluelessChickMagnet Shirou]] getting [[TheCameo Izumi]] [[GagBoobs Aoyama's]] phone number, much to his mortification and jealousy.

** Shirou tries to explain the many supernatural phenomena he finds in Inaba with his limited knowledge of [[FunctionalMagic thaum]][[{{Franchise/Nasuverse}} aturgy]]. For example, he mistook the TV World for an extensive Boundary Field and [[SpiritAdvisor Igor]] for a magus.

-->'''Shirou:''' Are you okay?\\
