* Meta-wise, Atlus really put a lot in Persona 4, including ''VideoGame/Persona4Arena'', ''VideoGame/Persona4DancingAllNight'', ''Golden'', the anime, and more. And after decades of Persona 4, it's time for ''VideoGame/{{Persona 5}}'' to take the stage. But just before that, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oO49aTa36gg here's one special video from the Persona 4 cast (with their Japanese cast) waving you good bye]] [[EndOfAnEra Their era has come to an end, and it has been a magnificent ride]], and it's like they're thanking the audience for the support in the decade. Sometimes, it's sad but necessary to wave good bye to the cast we know and love...

Added DiffLines:

** The latter half of January and beginning of February can be pretty hard to play through as even the game itself constantly reminds you that there won't be much time left and you should spend this time making memories with your friends. The melancholic winter music only makes it worse.

** Just listen to that scream Kanji makes when he punches the wall. Sums it up perfectly. For anyone who has actually lost a sibling, it's even worse.

to:

** Just listen Kanji's reaction to that scream Kanji makes when [[spoiler: Nanako seemingly dying]] is absolutely gutwrenching. The way he punches the wall. Sums it up perfectly.wall and just ''screams'' in anguish is absolutely crushing. For anyone who has actually lost a sibling, it's even worse.

* Ending the game itself. The protagonist, his friends, his family, and you the player all knew this was a temporary arrangement going in and that it would have to end ''eventually'', but looking back on all the good times (and even not-so good times) shared by friends and knowing that they're over has reduced many, many, ''many'' players to tears. And seeing other characters choke out tearful goodbyes certainly doesn't help either.

* The whole thing with the affair that Mayumi Yamamo and Taro Namatame was treated by the media as just another sordid scandal, and then Miss Yamano died. And THEN you learn the truth about the affair.[[spoiler: When you finally get to interrogate Namatame, it turns out his marriage to his celebrity wife wasn't very happy, but then he and Mayumi met and connected in a way he and his wife didn't, and actually loved one another. And everybody else cared more about the novelty of their affair being brought to light than the reasons that lead to it in the first place, focusing on the sensationalism and not on the actual people involved. And then he got manipulated by the real killer into getting more victims hurt thinking he was helping them.]]

** The final battle. [[spoiler: After wearing Izanami's HP down to almost nothing, she starts targeting the protagonist with an unblockable instant death attack every turn. One by one, the other party members [[HeroicSacrifice shove you out of the way]] and are sucked down into some misty dark world. And then it ''hits you anyway'']].

* ''Golden'' adds consequences for having multiple girlfriends. On Valentine's Day, each girlfriend will ask to spend the day with the MC like Christmas Eve, but this time, the player must directly reject each girl he didn't choose, one by one and face to face, watching as each girl's heart breaks.

*** Yukiko barely wants to speak about the subject and admits to still not really knowing who she is yet. Her final comment is that she finds it hard to believe that the MC is someone that she can have to herself. One possible interpretation is that she cares for the MC so much that she willingly accepts (what she sees as) a non-monogamous relationship just to stay with him.

* During Golden, helping [[spoiler: Marie come to the realisation that instead of trying to regain her ''old'' memories, she can make new ones with you and the others on the Investigation Team. And then this brisk, abrupt, rude girl gives you the most heartfelt of thanks, even if you only want to be friends with her]].

* Failing to save the next victim from the tv world in time. The MC dropping his cell phone despondently after being told of their death makes it all the more heartwrenching. Sure you get to restart and try again, but that doesn't take away the impact.

* Rise's [[AnguishedDeclarationOfLove "I love you, senpai!"]] as the train leaves in the Good Ending, complete with tears streaming down her face. While she's [[TheTease never very subtle]] about her feelings toward the MC, unless you romance her, it's only here where she actually confesses she loves him. With you returning home and, if you completed her social-link, her returning to show business, she likely didn't want you to leave without knowing how she really felt.
