** At the beginning of the P4 route, Margaret tells the group that she'll charge them to use the nurse's office, and Kanji complains that she doesn't even have "the sense of your average housewife". Kanji and Margaret's voice actors, Creator/MatthewMercer and Marisha Ray, are now engaged.

* BestLevelEver: The Group Date Cafe Labyrinth, [[LauncherOfAThousandShips due to the excessive shipping the Heroes can get into with just about anyone]]. It has some drawbacks with the kinds of mechanics and [=FOEs=] used, however, but it's definitely worth navigating through just to find your "destined partner", all ending with [[LargeHame the hammiest preacher]] you'll ever see, complete with a fairly interesting fight gimmick. The best part? [[HereWeGoAgain You can redo the scenario again.]]

** The second boss normally tries to limit your actions... however, taking poison damage is never considered to be breaking a vow. With how good the rates of poisoning an enemy are, the boss is made into a joke.

** The second boss normally tries to limit your actions... however, taking poison damage is never considered to be breaking a vow. With how good the rates of poisoning an enemy are, the boss is made into a joke. It's also easy to take advantage of its vulnerability to Electricity, making it easy to start and maintain Boost status (by comparison, Persona 3 and 4 bosses generally do not have elemental weaknesses).



** Certain returning characters (Namely Akihiko, Chie, Junpei, Yukari, and Teddie) are quite the topic for fans to debate over. Some fans think they are hit with horrible {{Flanderization}}, while others argue that it makes sense since all of these quirks occurred before they had their CharacterDevelopment.

* CounterpartComparison: The game's setting is quite similar to ''Anime/AngelBeats''. It's a high school setting populated by characters who have basic programming as to how to interact with the real people, and malevolent creatures known as Shadows. Rei also has some similarities with Yui, since [[spoiler:both were young girls who died after leading short and unfulfilling lives, severely impaired by their conditions, and eventually pass on with the help of the guy they like (Zen and Hinata, respectively)]].



** The Turret enemies in the final dungeon are brutal, as they use both powerful magical and physical attacks, meaning one type of Bind won't neuturalise them. Their physical attack, Charge Shot, is incredibly strong, being classed as a "severe" attack (i.e. the kind usually reserved for end-game physical Personas) and piercing to the back row, likely hitting your vulnerable healers. All this wouldn't be so bad if they didn't have a ''very high'' chance of attacking twice per turn. And showing up in groups of two. Four Charge Shots can very easily be a TotalPartyKill.

** The characters discuss the possibility of the Inaba serial killer not being such a bad person. Not only is [[spoiler:that absolutely not the case]], [[spoiler:their second suspect, Namatame, was just trying to do the right thing, and the investigation team is on the verge of killing him]].

** For people who like to fuse as many personas as possible (both to make sure that their Persona stock are high level, and to add more variety to better complete the compedium), the fact that multiple characters use compedium personas (and that the game's balanced with everyone using one in mind) can be annoying.
* {{Squick}}: In the "Trade Showdown" between Zen and Teddie, the latter offers Rei a large tuft of cotton candy. [[spoiler:Except it's not cotton candy, he actually made it from his own bear suit's ''fur''.]]

** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bGQrZy6lgEM "The Person is Then Called Away From War"]] is used for the final bonus battle against Elizabeth, which is only available by completing all of the extra requests on a New Game Plus. It has a very Etrian Odyssey feel, which is helped by the fact that the very composer of said game created this piece.

* EnsembleDarkhorse: The Merciful Clergyman is easily the most popular Guardian among the fans despite his small role. Probably has something to do with his hilariously LargeHam dialogue.

** Yosuke gets a small part in this during a late-game Stroll on the 4 side. He walks in on the girls explaining to Fuuka and Yukari he's a little TOO nice by putting everyone's needs and problems before himself and consistently call him an idiot for doing so. That's all he hears, none of the compliments about his niceness, and walks off crying while the Protagonist just stands there and watches.

** Anything with Bestial Roar, by extention. This causes the enemy to always attack first, which means ''before Boost''. If they hit a Boosted character, they lose their Boost status before they're able to take advantage of it, meaning they're forced to use whatever skill they selected that turn and pay the full HP or SP cost. Given that you likely chose a high-cost skill to take advantage of it being free, this can be extremely annoying. The only way to get around this is through Dekaja, and enemies start using these skills before that is readily available in either skill or item form.

At the very least, Kanji starts out with it, and it can be passed on, hopefully to slower party members such as Shinjiro and the aforementioned Kanji.
