HoYay in ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}''. Oh, so much HoYay.

*** This is even a rather solified action. If you talk to him the night before exam week starts, he'll tell you this story of how this girl came up to him asking him if Naoto likes sweet things, and he responds along the lines of "How the hell should I know? If you wanna know, ask her yourself." and the girl wasn't pleased. He then wonders why she asked in the first place. If you remind him that Valentine's Day is coming up, the ''first thing out of his mouth'' in response is to ''ask if you like sweet things'', and say he himself has a sweet tooth. Are we sure that was just friendship chocolate?

** Shadow Chie goes on and about how beautiful and fair-skinned Yukiko is. By comparison, in one optional night event at Junes, Chie notes that Yukiko's long dark hair goes well with her kimono. Both of these seem to suggest that Chie might not only be jealous of Yukiko's looks, but also be attracted to her.



** Everybody calls you Senpai (and Sensei for Teddie). Yosuke calls you [[IsThatWhatTheyreCallingItNow "partner".]]

** Yosuke had been planned as a romantic option earnily in the game's development. Obviously, this didn't make it into the finished version, but they left all the subtext in.



** The HoYay between them started all the way back in the Japanese P4: Golden, where Adachi's [[spoiler: true Social Link was actually called Lust]].

* Chie's and Yukiko at the very least have a RomanticTwoGirlFriendship. The conversation on Saki's appearance on the Midnight Channel ("My soulmate is a girl?"). Who was Yukiko's ''Prince''? ''Chie''! Their respective shadows talk about their dependency on one another, with Shadow Chie representing her control over Yukiko and taking the form of a Dominatrix.

** Also worth noting that in Chie's Arena storyline, [[spoiler:Shadow Yukiko]] goes as far as comparing her and Chie to ''Beauty and the Beast''. You know, that one story where the beautiful, kind girl who's not really interested in romance ends up falling in love with the fearsome beast who looks way more violent and scary than he actually is? The story that is clearly and well-known as a ''romance story'' through and through? [[spoiler:Shadow Yukiko]] says, and this troper quotes, "they are just like Beauty and the Beast" and calls Chie "her loathsome Beast." If this isn't blatant gay "subtext" (because this troper isn't really sure this can still be considered simple subtext), this troper isn't really sure what is. The fact that [[spoiler:none of the Protagonists' social links are considered to be maxed out in Arena, thus canonically dropping any romance the Protagonist might have pursued in Persona 4,]] only makes it way more suspicious ([[YuriFan not that I'm complaining.]]) Granted, it was [[spoiler:Shadow Yukiko]] who made the comparison as opposed to [[spoiler:regular Yukiko,]] but still...

** In regards to Yu x Yosuke, Persona 4: Dancing All Night is not shy about this trope '''at all.''' Various characters make reference to their special and intense relationship. During fever time, Nanako states that their relationship is like a "bromance." The investigation team members are generally jealous of their closeness, and even one of the Kanamin Kitchen members wonders if those 2 are a couple. In the main story, Yu is always concerned about Yosuke (even for trivial thing) and is generally considerate towards him.

*** When Yosuke's bike gets wrecked by Hanako, Yosuke asks Kanji to give him a ride back home. Kanji replies with this. Yep.

* Speaking of the anime, in episode 12 it's ''Yousuke'' who pulls him out of an HeroicBSOD during the fight against [[spoiler:Shadow Mitsuo]], in a scene that ''drips'' with HoYay. Not helped by how they start referring to each other in a FirstNameBasis.

** If make Yosuke wear a towel, Rise immediately picks up on the fact and says something along the lines of. "Oh senpai, that's your preference? That's a shame."



* Even Uncle Dojima gets in on the Ho Yay occasionally. The first words out of his mouth when you meet him are about how you're more handsome in person than in your photo. Okay, innocent enough. Then early in the game, he comes home from Junes with a present for lil' Nanako, and it's a t-shirt, to which she reacts with delight. Then he says he got ''you'' a present too. What is it when you open the bag? ''Swimming trunks''.
