* AStormIsComing: The closing scene of chapter 34, where Yosuke runs into a girl in a raincoat during a downpour is this. Particularly the moment when she [[spoiler:asks him out on the spot]] getting underscored by DramaticThunder. Given that the girl turned out to be [[spoiler:[[OurVampiresAreDifferent Satsuki]] [[CuteAndPsycho Yumizuka]] from ''VisualNovel/{{Tsukihime}}'']], who's giving off all the early signs of a CerebusKnight in the making.

* ShipTease: As expected from a crossover between a VisualNovel and a game that is one part LifeSimulator, there are a lot of moments where Shirou is shipped with the female Social Links as they appear. Interestingly enough, their appearance in chapter 33 gave rather heartwarming tease between Kanji and Naoto.

** Igor's reaction when Pixie asked him and Margaret whether they poop or not.



* AlternateCharacterReading: [[TheNicknamer Marie]] calls Shirou "Four" after hearing his name the first time because she thought it's written with the kanji for "Fourth" and "Son". He explained that his name can be read as "[[AwesomeMcCoolname samurai warrior]]" instead ([[NotMakingThisUpDisclaimer really]]), but she stuck to her first choice because it's "not as catchy."



* AmbiguouslyHuman: The Velvet Room residents as in canon. Shirou was rather alarmed when he heard from Marie that Igor and Margaret never leave, just sitting there for days or even weeks between his visits.



** The aptly titled "Calm Before the Storm" is a mostly humorous chapter interspaced with a few reactions to Kanji's reappearance in the Midnight Channel. [[spoiler:[[SubvertedTrope Then everything took a turn for the foreboding]] when Yosuke ran into a then-unidentified female character -- later revealed to be [[OurVampiresAreDifferent Satsuki]] [[CuteAndPsycho Yumizuka]] ''VisualNovel/{{Tsukihime}}'' who asks him out on the spot.]]

* ClarkKenting: The [[HeroicBuild fruits]] of Shirou's years of physical self-training aren't obvious at all in his usual clothes. A swimsuit or battle-related ClothingDamage is [[StupidSexyFriend an entirely]] [[DistractedByTheSexy different]] [[FemaleGaze story]].



* CowerPower: Referenced. When Mitsuo's bravado falls apart in front of Kanji after he tried to start a fight with the alleged delinquent, the latter mockingly asks him if his sister is going to come up and make apologies for him again.



* CuteAndPsycho: [[spoiler:Satsuki "Sacchan" Yumizuka]] is as cheerful and cute as she is utterly bonkers. Her EstablishingCharacterMoment in Chapter 35 had her happily cooking dinner for her little "brother" while encouraging him to follow through with his homicidal fantasies.

* FakeMemories: [[spoiler:Satsuki used her [[MagicalEye Mystic Eyes]] to make Mitsuo believe she's his sister and that his parents are away in a second honeymoon.]]



* FatalAttractor: Yosuke. He discovers that Saki (probably) hated his guts after she died, two girls he's been at least physically attracted to (Yukiko and Rise) only have eyes for his best friend, and when he finally gets a RelationshipUpgrade, it turns out that his first girlfriend is [[spoiler:a freaking ''vampire''.]]

* {{Foil}}: Shirou and Mitsuo of all people. [[spoiler:They both have messed-up ideas of what it means to be a hero, but while Shirou cares nothing for recognition and is surrounded by normal people who keep him grounded and work together with him to rescue people, Mitsuo is an AttentionWhore who has the support of a PoisonousFriend[=/=]LadyMacbeth and literal monster encouraging him to make his fantasies a bloody reality by exterminating the "villains" he thinks the world is best without.]]



* FreudWasRight: Shirou notices in Chapter 35 that the Shadow Selves the Investigation Team has met so far consistently express their interest in "over the top sexcapades into the unknown," which he encapsulates into the line [[CallBack "libido issues"]].



* HaremGenre: {{Discussed|Trope}}. The [[TokenReligiousTeammate Persona Angel]] has very strong negative opinions on the genre, while that [[HornyDevils Lilim]] likes to compare Shirou's live to one.

* HaremGenre: {{Discussed|Trope}}. The [[TokenReligiousTeammate Persona Angel]] has very strong negative opinions on the genre, while that genre for obvious reasons. [[HornyDevils Lilim]] likes to compare Shirou's live life to one.one but isn't that fond of it either. According to WordOfGod, Lilim doesn't like how such [[StatusQuoIsGod stories gets stuck]] in the WillTheyOrWontThey instead of having the protagonist have his way with his LoveInterests.
* HaremSeeker:
** [[HornyDevils Lilim]] is one by proxy who wants Shirou to MarryThemAll -- or at the very least [[SexualEuphemism "snag"]] them all. The interesting part is that she's one of Shirou's Personas, meaning that probably there ''is'' a deeply buried part of his mind that wishes for such a thing.
** On the other hand, [[TokenReligiousTeammate Angel]] in an {{Inversion}} who hates the HaremGenre with a passion and exhorts Shirou to aim for a monogamous relationship. Being also one of his Personas, it could be that another, more vocal part of his mind rejects the idea of him playing the field.



* HeroicBSOD: PlayedForLaughs when Yosuke saw [[CampGay Shadow Kanji]]'s Midnight Channel Special.
-->'''Yosuke:''' So, uh… dude. Yeah, like… dude! What I mean is… DUDE!\\
'''[[DeadpanSnarker Shirou]]:''' Meet up tomorrow at Junes? Dude?\\
'''Yosuke:''' Huh? Y-Yeah, sure, du- I mean, yeah, see you tomorrow.



* HypnoticEyes: [[spoiler:Satsuki has them as part of her [[OurVampiresAreDifferent Dead Apostle]] skill set. Notably, she used them to give Mitsuo FakeMemories, like making him believe she's his sister and that his parents are away in a second honeymoon.]]
* HypocriteHasAPoint: While a CasanovaWannabe and HormoneAddledTeenager like Yosuke probably shouldn't be giving relationship advice, he's not wrong when he told Shirou that doing nothing while Chie, Yukiko and Rise keep pining for him wasn't a good idea (not that [[ObliviousToLove Shirou]] had even ''realized'' the situation until that moment). Lampshaded by Pixie:
-->'''Pixie:''' For once, Yosuke has a point.



* ICallItVera: According to Ayako, her mother named her {{naginata|sAreFeminine}} like a pet.

to:

* ICallItVera: According ** Shirou once commented on the unsubtle sexual imaginary invoked by Shadow Selves and chalked it up to Ayako, her mother named her {{naginata|sAreFeminine}} like "libido issues." The Persona Lilim -- who's for all intents and purposes a pet.HornyDevils that sprung forth from his own subconscious -- retorted that's rich coming from the team's "[[ChickMagnet magic stud]]."



* InformedAbility: {{Averted|Trope}}. Taiga's CharacterDevelopment [[spoiler:after confronting her Shadow and taking a step away from her GrowingUpSucks mindset]] incidentally makes her MasterSwordsman status take a more prominent role than in the visual novel where it comes to the fore maybe once per route and [[TheWorfEffect only serves to underscore just how superior Saber's skill is compared to normal people]]. Notably, she becomes the de facto captain's of Homurahara's UsefulNotes/{{Kendo}} Club and [[PassionateSportsGirl Ayako]] takes the opportunity to learn swordsmanship from her.

** Also {{Averted|Trope}} with [[spoiler:Satsuki Yumizuka's [[MagicalEye Mystic Eyes of Enchantment]]. In ''VisualNovel/{{Tsukihime}}'', the fledgling vampire barely used her then-unnamed HypnoticEyes once when she unsuccessfully tried to make Shiki hers, and only in some of the routes. Here, Satsuki relies on them for UndeadTaxExemption purposes, like making Mitsuo believe she's his sister so she can have a place to stay in Inaba.]]

** Mitsuo tried to taunt Kanji for a DeliberateInjuryGambit, but [[SubvertedTrope he failed]] because his ReasonYouSuckSpeech for Kanji was just too off the mark to work. Mitsuo also made the mistake of mentioning Naoto, which made Kanji wonder [[WhatWouldXDo what would the detective do in his situation]] and that was putting Mitsuo down with words only and walking away.



* KillAndReplace: A variant. [[spoiler:It's implied that Satsuki Yumizuka killed Mitsuo's parents and hypnotized him into believing she was family.]]



* LadyMacbeth: Mitsuo's "sister" seems to get a kick out of cheerfully encouraging him into villainy. Or as she puts it, "[[AntiHero anti-heroism]]".



* LettingTheAirOutOfTheBand: The opera motif in the Velvet Room simply ''stopped'' when Pixie went and asked Igor and Margaret [[NobodyPoops whether they poop or not]]. This is doubly hilarious if you know that canonically [[VideoGame/Persona2 Belladonna and Nameless]] provide the background music in ''VideoGame/Persona3'' and ''VideoGame/Persona4'' as well, implying that the two of them got {{Stunned Silen|ce}}t too by Pixie's question.



* LongingForFictionland: Kanji thinks this may be why Mitsuo confronts him on the street like he's some sort of manga villain.
-->'''Kanji:''' ''[to Mitsuo]'' Look, chickenshit, I don't care who you are or what you do for your free time. Just leave me out of your damn {{LARP}}ing or else [[PreAssKickingOneLiner I'll give a good, painful reminder of who I really am]].



* NothingIsScarier: The readers aren't told what happened to [[spoiler:Mitsuo's parents after Satsuki came along. We know he's a victim of hypnosis and that he believes they're away enjoying a second honeymoon. The worrying part is that they left their car behind…]]

Or as she puts it, "[[AntiHero anti-heroism]]".lot more ambient mana than most places in the real world. Using his Magic Circuits and casting spells is also easier in there.



* RightForTheWrongReasons: [[spoiler:It's possible that for once Namatame's messianic delusions were actually ''right'' in Kanji's case, given the implication that throwing the latter into the TV World actually saved his life from a murderer -- just not the one Namatame thought was going to attack Kanji.]]

* ScreamsLikeALittleGirl: Mitsuo, when Kanji opts for stepping on his foot instead of beating him up to a pulp after the guy tried to provoke him into a fight.



* ShipToShipCombat: Shirou's Personas have an InUniverse shipping war going on because as each of them favors a different girl in his life. See ShipperOnDeck above for details.

** In Chapter 35, Shirou observes that predicting the result of Persona Fusion is complicated and that he can't really get to the underlying mathematics involved. This is a rather common complain among players about how the games in the Franchise/ShinMegamiTensei and Franchise/{{Persona}} franchises handle Demon/Persona Fusion.



* TermsOfEndearment: Mitsuo doesn't like when his "sister" call him "Mitsy", but tolerates it because she's the only person who treats him well.



* UndeadTaxExemption: [[spoiler:The vampire Satsuki Yumizuka pretends to be "Satsuki Kubo" -- the older Mitsuo Kubo never had but believes he does thanks to her Mystic Eyes -- in order to give herself a place to stay and a cover identity.]]

* AccidentalMisnaming: Marie can't remember Adachi and Dojima's names very well, calling them [[VideoGame/Persona5 Akechi and Niijima]] [[ShoutOut instead]].



* AmnesiacResonance: [[spoiler:The Mysterious Fox can't remember her real name, but became euphoric when Teddie proposed calling her "Tama-chan" (meaning "ball" or "jewel") for the time being because of how she looked when all curled up, hinting that the epithet stirred some strong emotion in her.]] See MythologyGag below.

* CabinFever: Marie calls the trope by name when she complained about always having to stay in the Velvet Room. When she realized that Margaret occasionally leaves the Room with Shirou for his magecraft lessons, she all but invited herself to tag along.



** In chapter 34, Yosuke had an AccidentalPervert moment that almost exactly mirrored Shirou's SuggestiveCollision with [[TheCameo Izumi]] [[ProductionForeshadowing Aoyama]] two chapters prior, but with reversed reactions. That is, whereas Izumi berated Shirou for it like a {{Tsundere}} heavy on the "tsun" is wont to as his dialogue became increasingly snarky and she slowly warmed up to him, Yosuke profusely apologized to the girl he ran into, who found the whole situation and his reaction in particular ActuallyPrettyFunny and even asked him out on the spot.

* DeliberateInjuryGambit: {{Subverted|Trope}}. Kanji realized that Mitsuo was trying to get beat up by him on purpose. He instead decided to leave him unharmed, [[CruelMercy but not without]] calling the guy out with a short but scalding ReasonYouSuckSpeech.
-->'''Kanji:''' You're not worth beating up. There's no fun in pushing around a weakling, and I'm already in enough trouble as it is. Then there's probably the fact that you're trying to play martyr by getting me to fight you. Get beat up, call the cops, spin some sob story to them and blame everything on me, right?



* DidYouActuallyBelieve: Kanji was incredulous that Mitsuo would think him stupid enough to fall for a DeliberateInjuryGambit so he could get attention by PlayingTheVictimCard.



** [[CasanovaWannabe Yosuke]] [[ThrowTheDogABone finally gets a girlfriend]]! Too bad she's [[spoiler:[[OurVampiresAreDifferent Satsuki]] [[CuteAndPsycho "Sacchin"]] [[VisualNovel/{{Tsukihime}} Yumizuka]]]] and he doesn't have a clue the mess he's in.

* HowDoIShotWeb: During his first battle after obtaining Jiraiya, Yosuke discovered that summoning one's Persona wasn't as easy as Shirou made it look. And no, CallingYourAttacks doesn't really help. On the bright side, even when unsummoned the possession of a Persona grants a considerable [[MagicEnhancement enhancement to his physical skill]], [[GameplayAndStoryIntegration particularly true for speed and reflexes in his case]], which allowed him to get by until he figured out how to summon.

** After Daisuke and Kou tried to convince Shirou to join one of their sport clubs, Yosuke mentioned that they attempted to do same with him last Valentine's Day with the promise that the training would make him more resistant to the cold.

** Shirou drops the line [[Memes/{{Nasuverse}} "you lost me"]] from time to time.
** In ''Anime/Persona4TheAnimation'', if Yosuke or the protagonist act in a way that can be taken as perverted, usually only the former gets into trouble for it because the girls don't find it creepy when [[ChivalrousPervert Yu]] does it. [[InSpiteOfANail Here the same happens with]] [[FusionFic Shirou as the lead]] because he's just that much of a [[KnightInShiningArmor Chivalrous]] CluelessChickMagnet.
** The fox from the shrine is now actually given a name, courtesy of Teddie -- "Tama", which means ball/jewel and therefore implying that it's supposed to be written with the kanji "玉". She responds ''very positively'' to this name. Readers have already noticed that it's the same character as in [[VideoGame/FateExtra Tamamo no Mae's]] name. And there's speculation that this is ''not'' an in-universe coincidence nor just a ShoutOut. [[note]]This doesn't necessarily mean Tamamo herself, she might instead be one of the other nine members of the Tamamo Nine, aside from Tamamo Cat, who was introduced in VideoGame/FateGrandOrder as a Berserker, and obviously does ''not'' fit Tama's personality.[[/note]]
** Shirou gets a job at MOEL. DummiedOut data from the game confirms that working at the gas station was indeed a part-time option before getting scrapped.
** Shirou once hotly complained that "his life is not a [[HaremGenre harem show]]", which amusingly is very much the case for ''VisualNovel/FateHollowAtaraxia'' and lots and ''lots'' of fan-produced works. Even in the [[VisualNovel/FateStayNight original visual novel]] he has at least some ShipTease with pretty much every named female character he interacts with more than once.
** Shortly after Yukiko's rescue, the Investigation Team goes into the TV World while their leader is somewhere else. This exact setting is used in the TieInNovel [[http://megamitensei.wikia.com/wiki/Persona_4:_Kiri_no_Amnesia Persona 4: Kiri no Amnesia]].

** One of the very first things Ayako thought of at the prospect of hanging out at Shirou's house is rummaging through his room to find out [[PornStash what kind of porn he reads]], [[StrangeMindsThinkAlike which is exactly what Rin]] (and a not-entirely-reluctant Saber) did in ''VisualNovel/FateHollowAtaraxia''.

** Shirou, Taiga, Ryotaro and Nanako visit Verde Shopping Mall in Fuyuki, a location available in ''VisualNovel/FateHollowAtaraxia''. On the other side of the {{Crossover}}, they went to a toy store there and buy a stuffed platypus and an electronic hand-mirror from [[ShowWithinAShow "Magical Detective Loveline"]] for Nanako, just like the one she had in the [[Anime/Persona4TheAnimation anime]].
** Taiga runs into a tree [[spoiler:and wakes up in what is implied to be her mindscape. It just so happens that her mindscape is the [[HaveANiceDeath Tiger]] [[VisualNovel/FateStayNight Dojo]]. Shadow Taiga is there, and design-wise she is basically Tiger Dojo Taiga's EvilCounterpart.]]
** Shirou drops the line [[Memes/{{Nasuverse}} "you lost me"]] from time to time.
** In ''Anime/Persona4TheAnimation'', if Yosuke or the protagonist act in a way that can be taken as perverted, usually only the former gets into trouble for it because the girls don't find it creepy when [[ChivalrousPervert Yu]] does it. [[InSpiteOfANail Here the same happens with]] [[FusionFic Shirou as the lead]] because he's just that much of a [[KnightInShiningArmor Chivalrous]] CluelessChickMagnet.
** The fox from the shrine is now actually given a name, courtesy of Teddie -- "Tama", which means ball/jewel and therefore implying that it's supposed to be written with the kanji "玉". She responds ''very positively'' to this name. Readers have already noticed that it's the same character as in [[VideoGame/FateExtra Tamamo no Mae's]] name. And there's speculation that this is ''not'' an in-universe coincidence nor just a ShoutOut. [[note]]This doesn't necessarily mean Tamamo herself, she might instead be one of the other nine members of the Tamamo Nine, aside from Tamamo Cat, who was introduced in VideoGame/FateGrandOrder as a Berserker, and obviously does ''not'' fit Tama's personality.[[/note]]
** Shirou gets a job at MOEL. DummiedOut data from the game confirms that working at the gas station was indeed a part-time option before getting scrapped.
** Shirou once hotly complained that "his life is not a [[HaremGenre harem show]]", which amusingly is very much the case for ''VisualNovel/FateHollowAtaraxia'' and lots and ''lots'' of fan-produced works. Even in the [[VisualNovel/FateStayNight original visual novel]] he has at least some ShipTease with pretty much every named female character he interacts with more than once.
** Shortly after Yukiko's rescue, the Investigation Team goes into the TV World while their leader is somewhere else. This exact setting is used in the TieInNovel [[http://megamitensei.wikia.com/wiki/Persona_4:_Kiri_no_Amnesia Persona 4: Kiri no Amnesia]].
** Shadow Rise compares herself to [[VideoGame/Persona4DancingAllNight Yuko]] [[IdolSinger Osada]][[spoiler:, an important PosthumousCharacter in that game's backstory who was DrivenToSuicide following her CreatorBreakdown, when "Risette" decides to pull off a TakingYouWithMe on the Investigation Team.]]
** One of the very first things Ayako thought of at the prospect of hanging out at Shirou's house is rummaging through his room to find out [[PornStash what kind of porn he reads]], [[StrangeMindsThinkAlike which is exactly what Rin]] (and a not-entirely-reluctant Saber) did in ''VisualNovel/FateHollowAtaraxia''.
** Yosuke privately calls Shirou "possible {{eroge}} protagonist in another life", which is exactly what he was in the original release of ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight''.

** In chapter 34, Yosuke had an AccidentalPervert moment that almost exactly mirrored Shirou's SuggestiveCollision with [[TheCameo Izumi]] [[ProductionForeshadowing Aoyama]] two chapters prior, but with reversed reactions. That is, whereas Izumi berated Shirou for it like a {{Tsundere}} heavy on the "tsun" is wont to as his dialogue became increasingly snarky and she slowly warmed up to him, Yosuke profusely apologized to the girl he ran into, who found the whole situation and his reaction in particular ActuallyPrettyFunny and even asked him out on the spot. In fact, things went so well for Yosuke that his unusual good fortune seems to be an indication of the opposite, which would make this an example of CerebusCallBack.

** Chie, Yukiko and Rise found it [[ThisIsWrongOnSoManyLevels wrong on many levels]] when Yosuke tried to convince them to wear the swimsuits he brought for them for the School Campout. They turned to leave without a further word when Shirou simply started to strip down to his swimming trunks because their StupidSexyFriend and team leader was actually on board with the idea of taking a dip in the mountain river. The girls wordlessly did a complete 180 and snagged all the swimsuits out of the other guy's hands and change into them because they realized the playing along with Yosuke's hormone-addled plan meant that ''they'' could stay and [[EatingTheEyeCandy indulge themselves with the eye candy]] too.



* InnocentFanserviceGirl: Shirou is the SpearCounterpart of this trope due to his CluelessChickMagnet tendencies and his compete obliviousness to the effect his trained physique has on the fairer sex ([[MemeticMutation and Yosuke]]).



** Shirou was at the other end of this trope for a change when he promised Chie and Yukiko to pound and fill them up... as in, pound any bad cooking habits out of them and fill them up with on the proper techniques, that is.

* ScrewTheRulesIHaveMoney: Shirou considers that Shinji Matou wouldn't get away with half of the stuff he does when flirting with girls or blowing off steam if not for the fortune under his family name.



* SeriousBusiness: Shirou considers "Mystery Food X" a ''sin'' that must be ''purged'' from the face of the Earth with a zeal that would give more than a few {{Knight Templar}}s a pause. In order to accomplish this noble mission, he unilaterally decided to give resident {{Lethal Chef}}s Chie and Yukiko cooking lessons, and he was so serious about it that neither of them even tried to argue against it.



* ShipTease: As expected from a crossover between a VisualNovel and a game that is one part LifeSimulator, there are a lot of moments where Shirou is shipped with the female Social Links as they appear.

To wit, the sight of his trained musculature as he prepared himself for a swim left Chie's brain too DistractedByTheSexy to form any coherent thought, Yukiko feeling too hot for her school jersey, Yosuke with a severe MuscleAngst and Rise... well, the former IdolSinger "drank the view for all its worth" while slowly [[LecherousLicking licking her lips]].
