[[caption-width:350:Arc Words, anyone?]]

''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'', RecycledINSPACE, with an even more [[DysfunctionJunction screwed up cast]] engaged in TeethClenchedTeamwork. [[TheyFightCrime They fight shadows.]]

For a broader description, Disappeared! is a Role Playing Game [[PlayByPostGames that is played on InsaneJournal.]] It takes the basic idea behind Persona 4 and makes it much bigger.

It has a wiki at: [[http://www.kettledragon.net/couch/index.php?title=Main_Page Sweetcouch]].
----
!!''Disappeared'' provides examples of the following tropes:
* AdultsAreUseless - Not a single persona-user is older than 18. Guess who are the sole group actually doing anything about the murders and disappearances?
* ArcWords - "Millennium City", "Disappear", "Paradise".
* {{Angrish}} - Maeko has a tendency to devolve into saying "stupid stupid stupid" and variations of such when angered sufficiently.
* BeachEpisode - It ended in the team fighting Toshimi's {{Nietzsche Wannabe}} shadow at the top of a spinning lighthouse.
* BigBallOfViolence - All Out Attack.
* BigDamnHeroes - Featured in practically every dungeon.
* BlandNameProduct - Much more extensive than in Persona 4, with everything from 4chan to the Nippon Ham Fighters, and including TVTropes itself, getting this treatment.
* BreakingTheFellowship - The team's meltdown after Kiriko's dungeon, which nearly gets them killed when Maeko's shadow [[FaceHeelTurn sells them out]] to the murderous angels.
* BreatherEpisode - Essentially everything that isn't the overarching plot, an investigation, or a dungeon.
* BrokenBridge - The lighthouse staircase in Toshimi's dungeon.
* ButtMonkey - Keiichi.
* ButterflyOfDeathAndRebirth - [[Persona2 Philemon]]. He appears to the party after the first CurbStompBattle against the angels, [[SeekingSanctuary granting them the Butterfly Room]].
* CharacterBlog - A large part of the game takes place posted on these.
* CharacterDevelopment - Integral to the plot of the game is the maturation of the teenage cast.
* ChekhovsGun - Hikaru's occult shop, and the fact that his items closely resemble the same items obtained from shadows in Paradise.
* ClapYourHandsIfYouBelieve - Paradise is entirely formed from people's thoughts.
* ClassTrip[=/=]HotSpringsEpisode - Just like in Persona 3, but it went much better for the boys in this cast.
* CollectiveGroan - The typical response to Misaki's {{Friendship Speech}}es.
* ContemplateOurNavels - Introspection and self-links are this.
* CulturalPosturing - Half of what [[{{Jerkass}} Kouchisei]] has to say is about the obvious superiority of Japan.
* DestinationDefenestration - Done in ''reverse'' to Kozue by Reizo in an attempt to enter a locked dorm room.
* DiggingYourselfDeeper - Every attempt Toru makes at assuring the team of his [[HaveIMentionedIAm HeterosexualToday heterosexuality]].
* DreamWorld - Paradise.
* DramaticWind - Featured in Toshimi's dungeon. It's actually important to the plot.
* DumbassHasAPoint - The easiest way to sum up Kiriko's interactions with Keiichi (when they're positive.)
* DysfunctionJunction
* ElevatorSchool
* EvilCounterpart

* GiantSpaceFleaFromNowhere - The initial arrival of the angels appeared to be this.
* {{GIRL}} - Kiriko prefers to play as male characters in {{MMORPG}}s. So does [[{{Jerkass}} #4]].
* HandsOffParenting - Except for where they actively feature in the individual plotlines of characters, most parents are conspicuously absent. Toru's are extremely glaring examples.
* HaveIMentionedIAmHeterosexualToday - THIS IS A NO-BUTTFUCK ZONE!
* HeelFaceTurn - Seiji betrays the other angels in order to assist the team. It doesn't end well for him.

* InfoDump - Seiji delivers one after his HeelFaceTurn.
* IntentionalEngrishForFunny- The most memorable segment of Maeko's dungeon.
