* UnstableEquilibrium: Characters that are more efficient in combat - either by doing damage, buffing their allies, or healing characters with status effects, ect - will gain more EXP for both their combat level and Persona level. This means that party members with less applicable use will get weaker and weaker as the game goes on. In short: The Protagonist, Maki, and Nanjo will level up normally. Everyone else will lag behind ridiculously, to the point where enemies can kill them in no time at all. It doesn't help that finished dungeons cannot be accessed after you beat them.
* VideoGameRemake - For the PSP.
* VisualPun: Takashi [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hannya "Hannya"]] Hanya. What's interesting is that hannya themselves (female demons) appear as a generic enemies.
* WhereItAllBegan: [[spoiler:The school library is a gateway to Pandora's lair]].
* WorldTree: The [[SavePoint Agastya Tree]].
* YouCantThwartStageOne: [[spoiler:Kandori... pretty much wins, actually. His palace rises from the earth, he attains [[AGodAmI godhood]], and the city is under his control]].
* YouBastard: If you listen to Kei. His preferred options are to [[spoiler:[[SaveTheVillain let Kandori's lead scientist die]], and [[SickbedSlaying pull the plug]] on an unconscious Maki]].

Added DiffLines:

* FreudianExcuse: Humorously deconstructed in the Snow Queen Quest. The bosses of the towers all attempt to explain their tragic backstories, but the protagonists' reactions are more or less "so?", quickly pointing out how whatever sad things happened to them not only justifies little but also isn't even relevant.

* RescuedFromPurgatory: In a way. The guardian from the Thanatos Tower traps your Personas in Tartarus, and the group has to go in there to get them out. And yes, it's guarded by Cerberus.

* EvilTowerOfOminousness: The Snow Queen creates three towers within the school for a game. They are based off of ClassicalMythology gods, Hypnos, Nemesis, and Thanatos and each have a guardian that exemplifies them.

* ThinlyVeiledDubCountryChange: One of the things the English dub of the [=PS1=] was infamous for. It attempted to change the location from Japan to Chicago... despite the fact that one of the major areas in the game is a ''Shinto shrine'', on top of many of the houses looking very Japanese influenced. Thankfully, this is {{Averted}} in the PSP remake, which keeps the setting in Japan.

* InfinityPlusOneSword/InfinityMinusOneSword: Every character has it, but you best do some research beforehand on where to find them. The Casino in Sun Mall up to a point has some great weapons to use, but they'll pale in comparison to what you'll find by returning some Rank 8 Personas.

* 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 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.

** SidetrackedByTheGoldenSaucer: Helps that you can mine the games for weapons. All of them are outclassed later on, but they're damn good for when you have them.
