''Persona'' is the first title in the ''[[Franchise/ShinMegamiTenseiPersona Persona]]'' JRPG franchise, a spin-off of the ''Franchise/ShinMegamiTensei'' video game series by {{Atlus}}. It's known as ''Megami Ibunroku: Persona: Be Your True Mind'' in Japan, ''Revelations: Persona'' in its first North American release, and ''Shin Megami Tensei: Persona'' in its later North American PSP re-release. Why all the titles? Because the first release had... [[{{Macekre}} issues]]... with its localization.

* WhamShot: A shocking revelation to players who read the manga adaption. Naoya suddenly turns against the party in chapter 20 but the next panel shows Naoya in a different room, meaning the Naoya in the party is an imposter. When the real Naoya shows up, he reveals who is the other person, his deceased twin brother, Kazuya.
* WhamLine: After defeating Kandori, Kei asks this:
-->'''Kei''': [[spoiler:Where is the real Maki Sonomura?]]

* ArtEvolution: During the development of this game, Kazuma Kaneko discovered the power of Photoshop which lead to his style starting to evolve from his old, somewhat traditional, art-style to his more distinct and recognized style that he would become known for. This becomes especially apparent when comparing the early game art to the art that appears later in the game.

At the time, the ''Shin Megami Tensei'' series was known for its incredibly deep, yet NintendoHard gameplay. ''Persona'' was an attempt by Atlus to create a ''Shin Megami Tensei'' game that would appeal to the masses: a character-driven RPG that turned down the difficulty a few notches in order to be more accessible. And by and large it worked, creating a very successful series whose recent incarnations (starting with ''{{VideoGame/Persona 3}}'') have eclipsed the main series in popularity. Many of the main characters from ''Persona'' would later go on to make cameo appearances in the ''{{VideoGame/Persona 2}} duology''. (Three even being ''playable characters'' in ''Persona 2''.)

* AndTheAdventureContinues: [[spoiler:The Snow Queen Quest ends with Masao returning to the now unfrozen school to recruit his friends to rescue Maki from the SEBEC Building, thus actually tying the Snow Queen Quest ending to the main route of the game.]]



* ArmorOfInvincibility: Persona 1 dropped the ball in terms of ultimate armor. It DOES exist in the form of Caesar equipment for the head, arms, feet, and armor. Unfortunately, you can only make the Ceasar Feet once (as you only get that particular item needed in fusion once) and that's only if you return Ayase's ultimate persona, which means no Ayase, no ultimate legwear. The other parts come from returning three seperate persona at rank 8 (Seioubo for the Head, Baal for the Arm, and Athena for the body). But, the armor is found on a level 90 persona, by which you don't fear taking damage aynway, as it's quite a pain in the butt to keep making Athena just for that. Thankfully, it's completely possible to beat the game with store bought armor.
