Added DiffLines:
* HarsherInHindsight: Some throwaway, optional news reports early in the game mention a nuclear power plant leak and home Geiger Counters becoming popular because of it. The game is, obviously, set in Japan. Since the Fukushima nuclear disaster, these lines have become ''very'' uncomfortable.

* IdiotBall: While Yukari's knee-jerk reaction to [[spoiler:go back to the past to bring the protagonists back to life]] in ''The Answer'' can be chalked up to LoveMakesYouCrazy (hardly excusable in itself), Mitsuru, of all people, decides to support her, with everyone else either choosing the present (Akihiko and Ken; while Junpei and Koromaru also agree to this, they're more worried about everyone fighting each other) or [[TakeAThirdOption focusing on why the Abyss of Time exists/is indecisive, but knows it's not a good idea]] (Aigis and Fuuka). Why does Mitsuru want to possibly put the world back into danger and possibly bring back things like Nyx, which is something that she [[TheAtoner wanted to get rid of to restore her family's tarnished name?]] Because Yukari comforted her when [[spoiler:her father was killed]], so she wants to ''return the favor.'' You'd think she'd return that favor in a ''saner'' way. Not only that, but Mitsuru doing this is [[KarmaHoudini never really addressed]], and [[spoiler:when Yukari breaks down about missing the protagonist, everyone comforts her and forgives her, despite her being incredibly insensitive and rude towards them in the beginning (namely pointing out Shinjiro's death to Akihiko)]].

Considering how little it's expanded on it really comes across as if the only reason Mitsuru sides with Yukari is because everyone splits off into pairs so she REQUIRES a partner and an IdiotBall is the only way she'd get one.

Not an example.
* DarknessInducedAudienceApathy: ** While [[spoiler: Shinjiro's]] death is heartbreaking, it's also hard to take seriously and by extension irritating because not only does he have a [[spoiler: Persona, he has the highest endurance in the game, and it's the Dark Hour when he's shot. Which means Takaya's bullets shouldn't have been any more effective than they are in the actual boss battle.]] GameplayAndStorySegregation is your worst enemy in this game. ** The entire game can sort of be this. ''Every'' character has been touched by death in some way, several are orphans or have lost at least one parent, and everything in the game is tied to death some way, even if it doesn't make a lot of sense. It can be hard to take the troubles of any one character seriously because of this, Yukari being a good example of this.

* WhatAnIdiot: So, one of your [[spoiler: best friends has been shot]] and is nearly dead. Maybe, just maybe ''use a healing spell''? But no, none of the seven party members, five of whom have access to these, think of doing that, instead lamenting that as it's the Dark Hour, electrical equipment is useless and taking him to the hospital likely won't help.

** This being an ThatOneBoss/{{Atlus}} game, most of the bosses are very tough, but Sleeping Table deserves a special mention. Megidola and Maragidyne (ma-spells hit all possible targets, and Megidola is a second-level Almighty - thus unresistable and very powerful - spell), plus [[OneHitKill Hamaon]], Evil Touch (inflicts Fear) and Ghastly Wail (unblockable, instantly kills any character with Fear.) You know it's bad when you're praying that it just spams its OneHitKill and misses. A lot of the Tartarus bosses can fall into this category, especially compared to the Full Moon Shadows, but the Table is the standout example.

*** Much like the male protagonist, the female protagonist is also given a tangible personality in her own drama CD. She's is shown to be significantly more cheerful and energetic than her male counterpart. She even gets angry at one point ("Her mouth is smiling, but her eyes aren't...") and later attempts to pummel Kenji when she loses her temper..

* MoralEventHorizon: Strega (especially one particular, long-haired member) crosses this as soon as he kills someone affected by the Dark Hour.

* DudeNotFunny: For some, the Hot Springs Incident in Kyoto has shades of this, especially after taking place just after a WhamEpisode filled November of [[spoiler:Ikutsuki being revealed as the traitorous monster he is, along with shooting Mitsuru's father fatally]]. The fact that the guys that had no idea what was happening really weren't at fault doesn't help much, even if it is optional. Nor does the fact that [[spoiler:Junpei, the ButtMonkey from that scene, loses his girlfriend in one of the biggest Tear Jerkers in the game not even a ''week'' later.]]
