* Heavily featured in the ''Videogame/{{Persona}}'' games, with the High Persona Philemon having a butterfly face in 1 and 2, and blue butterflies abound in 3 and 4 (according to WordOfGod, the current form of Philemon). Observe also [[RobotGirl Aigis and Metis's]] Butterfly masks.
** The blue butterflies serve as save points in ''Persona 4'', which fits the death and rebirth symbolism considering how often you'll die and have to reload.
