* {{Masquerade}}: Shirou felt particularly pressured to rescue [[IdolSinger Rise]] on the off, off chance that the death of such a public figure through supernatural means could attract the attention of someone related to the [[AncientConspiracy Mage's Association]], something that could end with a lot of people [[LaserGuidedAmnesia getting their memories rewritten]], if not outright KilledToUpholdTheMasquerade.

* AscendedExtra: The Mysterious Fox has its role expanded compared to the game, where it's mostly a helpful {{NPC}}[=/=]TeamPet. In this story, [[spoiler:"Tama" becomes a non-combatant team member in her own right and helps the Investigation Team both in and out the TV World.]]



* BeatTheCurseOutOfHim: Chie breaks a Charm spell on Yousuke via GroinAttack.

to:

* BeatTheCurseOutOfHim: Chie The Investigation Team seems to have a fondness for this trope and GetAHoldOfYourselfMan. In their defense, the considerable MagicEnhancement they get to their physical abilities as Persona-users in the TV World makes {{Slapstick}} a lot more palatable to the reader. For particular examples:
** During the fight against Shadow Yukiko, [[spoiler:Yosuke slapped a Fear-inflicted Shirou to his senses.]]
** In chapter 31, [[spoiler:Chie
breaks a Charm spell on Yousuke Yosuke via GroinAttack.]]



* CharmPerson: {{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]].

Yosuke is [[WrongGenreSavvy mistaking this for]] [[CluelessChickMagnet an entirely different trope]].
** Lilim.''Fate: Reach Out'' incorporates the "Charm" StandardStatusEffects from ''Videogame/{{Persona 3}}'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.]]



** This is how [[spoiler:the Persona Lilim]] became the MVP of the MiniBoss fight in Rise's dungeon, who took advantage of [[spoiler:Amorous Snake's usage of Stagnant Air to boost her Marin Karin skill and Charm Rain Wheel into finishing off the already weakened Shadow and then directed the lion-shaped chariot into attacking Rain Leg Musha, who managed to pull off a TakingYouWithMe on its former ally, ending the fight.]]



* ContractualPurity: Rise is an InUniverse example and once [[DiscussedTrope lambasted the hypocrisy]] of marketing an IdolSinger as both a sex symbol and a wholesome role model.
-->'''Rise:''' ''[to her manager]'' Oh, that's right! I can't talk about sex because I'm supposed to be an innocent stereotype and role model for young girls! It's completely unrealistic! And every idol company has been doing this same crap for, what, thirty years now? If idols are supposed to be role models, then we shouldn't play onto some escapist fantasy!



* DestroyTheEvidence: [[spoiler:Dojima had a hunch that Rise's kidnapping might have gotten caught on tape by the outdated yet still functioning street cameras of the Yasoinaba Shopping District. He's proven right, but Adachi "accidentally" pushed the record button and taped over the relevant portion of the footage and the only clue Ryotaro was left with is the fact kidnapper drives a van.]]



* DoubleKnockout: During the MiniBoss fight of Marukyuu Striptease, [[spoiler:the Persona Lilim [[StandardStatusEffects Charmed]] Rain Wheel into attacking Rain Leg Musha, who refused to go down without a fight and leading both Shadows into their simultaneous defeat.]]
-->[[spoiler:'''Lilim:''' [[BondOneLiner And that, my duckies, is what happens when an unstoppable wheelie meets an unmovable samurai. The. End.]]]]



* 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]]).



* EstablishingCharacterMoment: The very first thing the Persona Lilim does after Shirou Fused her was try to seduce him without a care for Igor and Margaret unconcernedly watching the whole thing. The same scene also serves as this trope for the Persona Angel, whose first known action in the story is to summon herself to play cockblock for the {{Horny Devil|s}} and advise Shirou against debauchery.



* GoodAngelBadAngel: Angel and Lilim have this interpersonal dynamics going on and, among other things, they disagree on Shirou's love life. Notably his Personas sure know how to pitch their cases to the aspirant hero -- Angel argues that "heroes of the past have an unfortunate track record of acting on impulse than chastity" and Lilim points out that a big part of a hero's mystique is how sexually attractive they are.



* GuardianAngel: The Persona Angel is a self-proclaimed example for Shirou and wants to lead him down the [[LawfulGood path of righteousness]]. Also very fond of Nanako, but too much of a prude by Lilim's standards. Then again, most people are SourPrudes by [[HornyDevils Lilim's]] [[ReallyGetsAround standards]].



* HoistByHisOwnPetard: [[MiniBoss Amorous Snake]] used Stagnant Air to make it easier of it to Charm one of the party members and turn him or her against the rest of the Investigation Team. [[spoiler:Lilim took and advantage of the fact the Stagnant Air affects foe and friend equally to return the favor and Charmed another Shadow into defeating Amorous Snake for her.]]



* HornyDevils: Lilim, dangerous sex demons from Judeo-Christian lore. As Shirou's Persona and just like [[NobleDemon Eligor]], Lilim has his best interests in mind, giving her a more DarkIsNotEvil characterization. However, given [[BlueAndOrangeMorality her particular sense of values]], what she considers best for Shirou happens to involve him having his way with "any and EVERY girl he could want", which doesn't sit well with the guy.
-->'''Lilim:''' I think I'll hang around if your life is like an episode from a harem show.\\
'''Shirou:''' My life is not a harem show!



* IdentityAmnesia:
** Shirou, who completely forgot that he was once known as Yu Narukami prior to the Fuyuki Fire.
** [[spoiler:Marie as per canon for ''Videogame/{{Persona 4}}: [[UpdatedRerelease The Golden]]'', who was found first by the police instead of the Velvet Room this time around.]]



* {{Masquerade}}: Shirou felt particularly pressured to rescue [[IdolSinger Rise]] on the off, off chance that the death of such a public figure through supernatural means could attract the attention of someone related to the [[AncientConspiracy Mage's Association]], something that could end with a lot of people [[LaserGuidedAmnesia getting their memories rewritten]], if not outright KilledToUpholdTheMasquerade.



* MundaneUtility: The Velvet Room is a "place [that] exists between dream and reality, mind and matter" and shapes itself to suit its guest according to a metaphorical representation of his or her journey. Persona 4's version of it also comes with comfy seats and a fully equipped and lavishly stocked actual mini-bar, something that Shirou and Margaret certainly appreciate.

** The Persona Angel used a low-powered [[OneHitKill Hama spell]] Marukyuu Striptease as a light source.



** 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.
* 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.]]



* NightmareFetishist: Yosuke discovered that Yukiko was one in Rise's dungeon -- to his disappointment too as he hoped to look good to her and perhaps {{Invoke|dTrope}} a GirlsAreReallyScaredOfHorrorMovies[=/=]SecurityCling scenario with her. Instead, Yukiko was completely enthused by the fact Marukyuu Striptease ended up playing out a lot like a horror movie when Shadow Rise turned off the lights.
-->'''Yosuke:''' Say, Amagi-san? Want me to be your front guard?\\
'''Yukiko:''' [[ArmorPiercingResponse No]].\\
'''Yosuke:''' I-I insist, Amagi-san, after all, you don't know what kind of Shadows lurk in the, well, shadows. They could be hideous monsters, like, having see-through guts, or wielding chainsaws!\\
'''Yukiko:''' ''[tenses at his words]''\\
'''Yosuke:''' Or, or even having the ability to summon arms that pop up from the ground and pull you underneath!\\
'''Chie & Teddie:''' Aaaaaaah!\\
'''Yukiko:''' I know! And in the dark too! Isn't that exciting?!\\
'''Yosuke:''' ''[{{jaw drop}}s]''\\
'''Yukiko:''' So many dark corridors and a Shadow could pop up at any moment! Maybe they'd be a pair of zombies bound together in skewers, or a giant blob that can dissolve skin and bones! Why, think of the ''traps'' that we could encounter here!\\
'''Teddie:''' Please don't.



* PowerOfTrust: Being a {{Determinator}} with a ChronicHeroSyndrome who routinely puts HonorBeforeReason may lead Shirou to an early grave, but it comes with the side benefit that his word may as well be traded on the precious metals market. His DeclarationOfProtection to Yukiko went a long way to reassure the girl that he had her back both within the TV World in combat and in the real world if the kidnapper targeted her again. For a more mundane but not less impressive example, Shirou managed to convince the Mysterious Fox to sell him her healing leaves on credit after Teddie spoke on his behalf due to the trust he has in his "sensei".



* RescueRomance: [[CasanovaWannabe Yosuke]] was actually looking forward to fight Shadow Rise for a chance to {{Invoke|dTrope}} this trope with the IdolSinger. He even asked his friends for feedback to make the best and most heroic first impression. Needless to say, they weren't amused.
-->'''Yosuke:''' How about "Hey babe! Name's Yosuke Hanamura! And I want to be your boyfriend for life!"? No, too long, I need to make a good first impression. Maybe if I make a dynamic entrance with Jiraiya and whisk her off her feet? I could play a cool song to go with it. I wonder if I have one of hers on my player--\\
'''Chie:''' For crying out loud, Hanamura! We're on a mission to save Rise-chan! Stop treating this like a pick-up date!\\
'''Yosuke:''' I-I'm not! I just want to make sure she likes us!\\
'''Shirou:''' Whether she likes us or not is pointless, Yosuke. Chances are we'll have to end up fighting her Shadow.\\
'''Yosuke:''' ''[blushes]'' ''[grumbling]'' Well, I guess I'll impress her with my actions instead of my words. Dating can wait after.\\
'''Chie & Shirou:''' ''[roll their eyes]''

** [[SubvertedTrope Unsuccessfully]] {{Invoked|Trope}} by Yosuke in the same scene with Yukiko, who turned out to be a huge [[NightmareFetishist horror movie buff]], completely at odds with her YamatoNadeshiko image.



* ShipperOnDeck: The Persona Eligor of the Chariot Arcana doesn't even try to be subtle about Shirou×Chie. Doubles as GeniusBonus if you take [[TheMatchmaker "[Eligor] causeth the Love of Lords and Great Persons" thing]] from the ''Literature/ArsGoetia'' into account.

* SlaveToPR: By proxy even. [[spoiler:Rise's ContractualPurity as an IdolSinger becomes plot point later on when Shirou realizes that her yet-to-be-aired Midnight Channel Special has the potential to destroy her career after seeing how [[AttentionWhore her]] [[FanDisservice Shadow]] [[{{Stripperiffic}} was]] [[ShamelessFanserviceGirl like]], especially if broadcast right after the announcement of her [[CreatorBreakdown already-controversial]] hiatus.

This fact apparently made the later either hesitate about trying to throw Kanji into the TV or waste time trying to find her. By then, Kanji already has a bodyguard of sorts in the famous teen detective Naoto Shirogane who followed him at all times, making any approach difficult. Then Rise became the talk of the town and a target, which made the kidnapper ponder between going for her or keep focusing on Kanji instead.]]

*** This didn't go unnoticed InUniverse. It's implied that one of the reasons why Margaret insisted on forming a Social Link with Shirou is because she realized his reluctance towards the "Power of Bonds", which could have serious consequences later on in his journey. Shirou was impressed at her request, as he never expected "her of all people to put her money where her mouth was", and it seemed to work too as he didn't show any real reluctance to form a Social Link with Teddie the next chapter.

On the bright side, 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.

* {{Mukokuseki}}: Shirou's natural red hair and almost golden eyes counts as an {{Aver|tedTrope}}sion, as it makes him very memorable among the Japanese population. This becomes a plot point in the second Fuyuki Gaiden because [[spoiler:it allowed Tohsaka to recognize him in a blurry picture, which started an unforeseeable chain of events that led her to discover that he was a magus.]]



** Shirou. So much that Yosuke rated it at "{{shonen|Genre}} hero levels". His Persona kind of alleviate this. [[spoiler:Like when Eligor tells him that Chie wanted to train with him alone or Cu Sith points of Taiga feels some level of passionate love for him rather than just sibling affection when she kisses his cheek before he returns to Inaba after Golden Week.]]
** Yukiko is a milder example in that she notices certain things and is blind to others. For example, until spelled out for her by Shirou himself of all people, she didn't know why guys approached her so frequently. This trope plays out strangely when the two of them interact. In chapter 28 and right before the establishment of his Social Link with Yukiko, Shirou said and did many little and not-so-little things that unwittingly charmed the girl, but for her part Yukiko seemed to miss how much of an effect they had on her and explained away her reactions as her inexperience talking with boys together with him being a natural [[NiceGuy but well-meaning]] smooth-talker.

** While discussing the fact that not every person who appears in the Midnight Channel ends up in the TV World and facing their Shadows, Yosuke [[spoiler: mistakenly mentioned Taiga as an example and the narration briefly jumps to focus on her as she sneezes during a sparing match.]]
* SomedayThisWillComeInHandy: Subverted, Yosuke's "Risette facts" end up being worthless because they are her idol persona's trivia not Rise's.

* VillainousCrush: {{Defied|Trope}}. [[spoiler:When Izanami realizes that she's actually becoming rather fond of the idealist Shirou and interested in him beyond mere curiosity, she realizes that won't do as she can't pick favourites among her three chosen ones or the results of [[HumanityOnTrial her test for mankind]] will be meaningless. In order to remain impartial, she decides to detach that part of herself (aka Marie) so she would not be obstructed by moral compassion or restraint, and thus providing Shirou with both someone to save and a suitable villain who would become a proper trial for him to try to overcome in order to become a hero.]]
