[[http://tvk.dreamwidth.org/ A panfandom Dreamwidth roleplay]] that ran from 2011 to 2013. The characters have been brought into Prospero, a city that looks relatively normal, until midnight. Then, the Dark Hour, straight from ''{{Persona 3}}'', emerges. Normal people turn into coffins and monsters called Shadows flood the city. To fight these Shadows and learn why they were brought here, the characters must use their new powers of Persona.

----
!! This game provides examples of:
* AbsenceMakesTheHeartGoYonder: After Kaiji dropped, Saori was canon-updated to a future where she was engaged -- and later married -- to someone else.
* AcronymAndAbbreviationOverload: Not really taken overboard in-story or out, at least not any more than any other [[SelfDemonstratingArticle LJ/DWRP]] does, but the game's LJ community was called thevelvetkey whereas its DW community is just called tvk.
* ActionGirl: [[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion Asuka]] and both [[VisualNovel/FateStayNight Saber]] and [[FateExtra Saber Extra]], of course.
* ActionSurvivor: Issei, though he's trying to build himself up as a combatant.
* ActorAllusion: On the mun side. For the masquerade ball, [[Anime/FutariWaPrettyCureSplashStar Kaoru]] wore a plain white eye mask with a few rhinestones glued onto each corner. [[Fanfic/FutariWaPrettyCureBlueMoon Remind you of anybody?]]
** Voice actor allusions went rampant during the March murder plot, since the perpetrator, Ryuunosuke, shares a VA with Minato.
* {{Adorkable}}: April.
* AffablyEvil: [[LightNovel/FateZero Ryuunosuke]] made a post asking about the feasibility of getting a kitten on the same day that he killed [[{{Vocaloid}} Kaito]].
* AmbiguouslyHuman: Anyone who isn't human ''at all'', outside of the Dark Hour. [[RivieraThePromisedLand Ein]] gets special mention for also being this ''during'' the Dark Hour.
* ArbitrarySkepticism: Regarding the triple goddess. Let's see, we have actual deities on the taken list, and then there's the whole Persona thing.
* AwkwardFatherSonBondingActivity: Kayneth during the Empress event, when he suddenly had a bunch of children he didn't know what to do with -- none of whom were particularly into it, nor did they know what to do.
* AxCrazy: The current character roster includes a pile of mass murderers. There hadn't been a murder for ten years before the characters came - suffice it to say that it's going to get a lot worse.
** Notably [[AvertedTrope averted]] with [[VideoGame/BlazBlue Jin Kisaragi]]. He's taken from the end of ''[[VideoGame/BlazBlueContinuumShift Continuum Shift]]'', so he's resistant to Yukianesa's influence. Not that it matters here, of course...
* BaddieFlattery: [[LightNovel/FateZero Ryuunosuke]] could fall into a number of categories - CombatSadomasochist, InLoveWithYourCarnage - but what's for certain is that it took only a few comments upon his revival to start praising the person who killed him as awesome. Lancer was a little weirded out.
* BecomingTheMask/[[spoiler: RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething]]: [[FateExtra Rider]], Rider, ''[[http://tvklogs.dreamwidth.org/39200.html?thread=2629152#cmt2629152 Rider]]''.
* BeingWatched: The December 2012 event had a paranoia plague around the town.
* {{Bifauxnen}}: Most of the island is under the impression that [[VisualNovel/FateStayNight Saber]] is a guy.
* BigScrewedUpFamily: ''Everyone'', during the Empress Arcana event.
* BikerBabe: Extra Rider. Vriska would like to think she is one.
* BizarreInstrument: Bunny in the Box will take *anyone* into its rotating membership, resulting in the need to write rock songs for the harp and other such things.
* BornLucky: [[VisualNovel/FateStayNight Gilgamesh]] should just be banned from the casino.
* BonusBoss: Nobody has to fight the bosses, but they give extra levels if you participate.
* BossBattle: The monthly mod events usually end in this. Everyone gets to pitch in!
* BoxingLessonsForSuperman: Persona users regularly offer one another lessons in physical combat, armed or unarmed, to supplement their powers.
* BreakTheCutie: Happened to [[BreathofFireIV Ryu]] as a result of his canon update, and happened ''again'' when he came across [[Videogame/{{Xenosaga}} Albedo]] mutilating a corpse.
* BrokeYourArmPunchingOutCthulhu: Half-literally, when Rider's persona turned on her. The other half is that Cthulhu busted up her ship, not her arm.
* BroughtDownToNormal: Why a {{Vocaloid}} and a [[VisualNovel/FateStayNight Heroic Spirit]] can be basically on the same team.
* CannotSpitItOut: Saori on confessing her feelings for Kaiji until the Personal Shadow event where she clocked her own Shadow and tells it not to touch 'her man'. Kaiji takes it rather well.
** April on her feelings towards [[RivieraThePromisedLand Ledah]], mainly due to how she doesn't want to make things awkward betweem them. But she later manages to spit it out.
* CardboardPrison: Well, for Persona users, it is.
* CasualDangerDialog: [[{{Mahabharata}} Karna]], when asked on how he felt if his life was in danger upon arrival, and basically shrugs off the thought. Granted, he's seen a lot in his time, so it's no wonder.
** Lovers Event. Yandere!Vriska and Paranoid!Kaoru go from being about to seriously harm each other to [[http://tvklogs.dreamwidth.org/34911.html?thread=2260319#cmt2260319 calmly discussing the apocalypse]].
* AChatWithSatan: Albedo would always try to break V/V's spirit this way when they were in-game. Not that it ever worked, which just intensified his [[FoeYay hatecrush]].
** TheCorrupter: Failed miserably and repeatedly.
* CorruptChurch: The Church of the Three. Probably. Some of the characters have resolved to investigate it after it randomly appeared showing connections to the founders of Prospero and the Dark Hour.
* DemotedToExtra: Happens to anyone apped from the actual Persona series. Poor [[{{Persona3}} Minato]].
* DieOrFly: The most common way to awaken your Persona.
* DisabledHottie: April, full stop. Mention should also go to Mila, who is definitely more "disabled" than "HollywoodCyborg" (which is the entire reason her cybernetic implants got past Prospero's normalcy test in the first place).
* DudeLooksLikeALady: Not as bad as [[VisualNovel/FateStayNight Saber]], but [[RivieraThePromisedLand Ledah]] has gotten a shocked reaction on mentioning that he's a man, and he doesn't even encourage the misconception like Saber does.
* [[EmotionlessGirl Emotionless Guy]]: [[RivieraThePromisedLand Ledah]] actually has emotions now, though he tries not to show them much.
** Oh, and then there's [[FutariWaPrettyCureSplashStar Kaoru]], she who never smiles.
* EnemyWithout: In November, there was an event in which the [=PCs=] had to face ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}''-like Shadow clones of themselves, albeit greatly toned down relative to the source material.
* EvenTheGuysWantHim: Theoretically [[FateZero Lancer]] doesn't have his curse anymore, but considering his involvement in the love polyhedron includes [[DGrayman Neah]], [[FateZero Ryuunosuke]], and [[VisualNovel/FateStayNight Issei]], you'd be forgiven for thinking it had gotten stronger.
* EvilCounterpart: V/V views Kaoru as hers to an extent. The feeling's mutual.
* ExpansionPackWorld: Players are encouraged to make places up.
* ExtraStrengthMasquerade: The civilians conveniently forget or don't believe anything like Personae, revival upon death, and people showing up claiming to be from other worlds. The [=PCs=] getting frustrated with this is a big part of why they usually only befriend each other.
* FailedASpotCheck: Sakurako and Madoka, during the Ace of Swords event. They had *no clue* that the suddenly-appearing unfriendly version of Misa wasn't really her. When she only ever showed up during the Dark Hour. During an event where everyone was facing Shadows impersonating their friends and relations.
* FisherKingdom: Prospero humanizes everyone outside of the Dark Hour.
* ForgottenFirstMeeting: With anyone re-apped and rebooted, like Medea.
* TheGamblingAddict: The Fortune Full Moon Shadow afflicted the whole town and some player characters with this for the week leading up to its boss battle.
* GenreSavvy: [[Webcomic/GirlGenius Klaus Wulfenbach]] figured out pretty quickly that space/time shenanigans were afoot re: his arrival. Being a Mad Scientist pays off sometimes.
* GirlsLoveStuffedAnimals: ...well, Kaoru can't really say she loves much of anything, but she possesses a [[Film/ConAir small pink stuffed bunny]] that John gave her while she was in the hospital. She's confused by it and later asks what it's for. [[TearJerker By the time she's out of the hospital, he's fallen victim to the mass disappearance]] [[ObliviousToLove and she never really understood why he gave it to her]].
* GoKartingWithBowser / VillainsOutShopping: Even the evil characters need jobs. [[FateZero Ryuunosuke]] is a local bartender and happily chats up people he recognizes.
* GratuitousGerman / ForeignCussWord: Asuka is a real pottymouth in her native language. She also orders her Persona around with German phrases since she thinks in German, refers to her Persona with the modern German spelling (Brünnhilde as opposed to Brynhildr) and occasionally just throws in an honorific or greeting in German because her player feels like it.
* GreatEscape: Well, the locals think that's what Ryuunosuke did. [[CardboardPrison He actually just walked right out of jail.]]
* GrievousHarmWithABody: Half the island gangs up on Albedo to try and save V/V? He tosses her at people.
* HatePlague: The second half of the Lovers event.
* HeroKiller: Kiritsugu and Maiya went on a Servant-killing spree (including people closely related to the Servants in question) in April 2012.
** Followed by [[TheChessmaster Kiritsugu]] being outdone by [[BewareTheNiceOnes Lancer]] and [[IdiotHero Shirou]] of all people with shades of a ThanatosGambit.
* HeterosexualLifePartners: [[VisualNovel/FateStayNight Gilgamesh]] and [[Literature/TheEpicOfGilgamesh Enkidu]]. [[HoYay Or are they]]?
* HomeBase: Saori's tea house.
* HypocriticalHumor
** '''Shirou:''' You're in love with her, YOU DENSE IDIOT!
* IncorruptiblePurePureness: [[AngelNotes V/V]] loves humanity and would really like to get along with people who have murdered her.
* InsufferableGenius: [[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion Asuka]].
* InsultBackfire: The FanCommunityNickname "Fate/Persona" has been taken as a badge of pride by the large Nasuverse cast, and the game occasionally calls ''itself'' that.
* ItemGet: Caliban dungeon dive rewards, when what the characters actually got is revealed.
* {{Jerkass}}: A few characters, including [[VisualNovel/FateStayNight Gilgamesh]], [[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion Asuka]], and [[VideoGame/BlazBlue Jin]].
* KickTheDog: Naoya strangles V/V to death in an alley after she gives him Valentine's chocolate and tries to get him to talk about his life. If that isn't [[DeathIsCheap pointlessly]] evil, what is?
* KinkMeme: Periodically!
* LetMeGetThisStraight: New characters tend to react to the summary of the situation kind of like this. It is a pretty weird situation, at least.
* LoveDodecahedron: Within a few months of beginning.
* LoveIsInTheAir: The first half of the Lovers event.
* MaidCafe: Prospero has one, staffed by male and female characters whose muns love to see them in despair.
* MeaningfulName: Trey Matre.
* MegaCrossover
* MissionControl: [[Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica Madoka]] is here to remind you that there's [[CaptainObvious only one enemy left]]!
* MonsterCompendium: The Shadow Database, as maintained by [[VideoGame/DevilSurvivor Atsuro]] and others.
* MoralityPet: V/V for both Beatrice and Gilgamesh, while keeping them from killing each other.
** MoralityChain: Given Gilgamesh's rampage when Naoya killed V/V...
** Also [[BreathofFireIV Ryu]] for [[Videogame/{{Xenosaga}} Albedo]].
* MurderTheHypotenuse: [[VisualNovel/FateZero Sola-Ui]] did this to Saber very soon after her arrival.
** [[LightNovel/FateZero Waver Velvet's]] shadow during the Personal Shadow event tried to do this to [[VisualNovel/FateStayNight Issei Ryudo]]. The reason? He was upset that [[AlexanderTheGreat Rider]] had taken Issei as a vassal and thought that he was being replaced.
* MythologyGag: [[FutariWaPrettyCureSplashStar Kaoru]] just ''had'' to discover the wonder of sleeping in beds a [[Roleplay/TheGrailWars third]] [[Roleplay/TheSkyTides time]].
* NakedOnArrival: Enkidu. Because he's [[Literature/TheEpicOfGilgamesh Enkidu]].
* NamesTheSame: The ShinMegamiTensei Cu Chulainn and the VisualNovel/FateStayNight Cu Chulainn look nothing alike - [[FateZero Diarmuid]] has the former as his Persona, while the other cast members have encountered the latter.
* NeckLift: Kaoru, affected during the Devil event to not stifle her feelings for her sort-of-friends, chokeslammed a guy who insulted V/V's music.
* NeverRecycleABuilding: The original Caliban. (It's now city hall, averting this.)
* NeverMessWithGranny: Ingrid.
* OntologicalMystery: Both played straight ''and'' subverted. While characters can't return home, they can leave Prospero. And there's a whole world out there, too.
* OurAngelsAreDifferent: Averted in Asuka's eyes by V/V's previous nature as [[AngelNotes TYPE-Venus]]. The former was half horrified and half glad there was someone from a similar world out there. The latter was just more or less horrified at the ensuing death threats.
* PayEvilUntoEvil: V/V's entire CR wants to get their hands on her murderer, even if she's keeping her mouth shut on who it is. Now that Naoya's for all intents and purposes been outed as the one who did it...
* PlayingWithFire: Fire-using Personas go here.
** [[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion Asuka's]] Persona isn't just a fire-type to match her [[FieryRedhead hair and attitude]], she's [[IncendiaryExponent literally on fire]] due to how [[Theatre/TheRingOfTheNibelung her legend]] ended.
** [[{{Persona 3}} Minato's Orpheus]], in contrast to his personality.
** [[RivieraThePromisedLand Ledah Rozwelli]], presumably as the celestial sort of flame
** [[BreathOfFireIV Ryu's]] Persona, to match with his elemental association in canon.
* RealityEnsues: One of [[VisualNovel/AceAttorney Edgeworth's]] many sources of frustration is discovering that in ''this'' world, learning a single fact can take months of investigation.
* RefusedTheCall: Just sleeping through the Dark Hour is a feasible option, particularly if you don't care.
** TheCallKnowsWhereYouLive: [[VideoGame/BlazBlue Jin]] ''tried'' to do this, only to get attacked by Shadows ''way'' too close to the hotel.
* ReiAyanamiExpy: Well, Asuka called Kaoru "Wonderlessgirl".
* ScrewPolitenessImASenior: Ingrid.
* SerialKiller: There were two such plots in short succession.
* ShipperOnDeck: [[FateZero Ryuunosuke for Lancer and Saber]] because it freaks them out and it's funny, and also because he genuinely likes them.
** [[OriginalCharacter Saori]] for [[Webcomic/GirlGenius Klaus]] and [[OriginalCharacter Ingrid]] but she hasn't made it public yet and it doesn't help they all live on the same hotel floor.
* ShockAndAwe: Electricity-using Personae, plus April back home.
* SternTeacher: Ingrid.
* SummonMagic: Persona. Also the player characters, possibly.
* SuperNotDrowningSkills: [[FateExtra Hakuno]] seemed lucky enough to have this during her intro.
* SuspiciouslyVagueAge: Averted. Character ages are listed on the application, and smut involving minors is not permitted on game-controlled grounds (that is, in the game's communities).
* TarotMotifs: It's a game based on {{Persona 3}}. What did you expect?
* TarotTroubles: Eater did a surprisingly accurate session of card readings once -- surprisingly because it wasn't decided on OOC knowledge; the mun did actual readings with a real deck while tagging the post. A few months later, Hiyono gave it a shot as well.
* TechnologyMarchesOn: Invoked by Asuka, who remarks that technology in her own world must have been stalled by the apocalypse instead of, you know, her canon being made in TheNineties.
* TimeStandsStill: The Dark Hour, by nature.
* TranslatorMicrobes: Present, but suppressible. Everyone speaks English by default unless they concentrate on speaking another language they know.
* TrappedInAnotherWorld
* {{Tsundere}}: [[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion Asuka]].
* UndeadTaxExemption: Everyone, due to mysterious circumstances. Room and board are taken care of, jobs don't ask for references, and kids are automatically enrolled in school.
* VitriolicBestBuds: several. [[VisualNovel/FateStayNight Gilgamesh]] and [[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion Asuka]] are notable for their sheer apparent enjoyment in barraging each other with insults and arrogant assertions of their own superiority.
* WakeUpGoToSchoolSaveTheWorld: Characters under a certain age are supposed to go to school in between fighting Shadows.
** CompulsorySchoolAge: Even if they just ''look'' that age.
* WeirdMoon: It's a ''Persona 3'' game. Come on.
* WithFriendsLikeThese: No wonder Edgeworth's frustrated. The captives can be as bad as the captors, and ''they're'' there all the time.
* WhenIWasYourAge: Ingrid.
* WhiteMagicianGirl: Lucia, complete with actual staff.
* WhoWillBellTheCat: A source of Edgeworth's eternal frustration. Even those who agree with his idea to implement a justice system are in over their heads and they know it, leaving them to just hope someone else will come along willing and able to do the actual work involved.
* WrongContextMagic: The Shadow duplicates in the Ace of Swords event kept their canon counterparts' abilities.
* {{Yandere}}: Vriska during the Reversed portion of the Lovers event. She kidnapped all the people closest to her, calling them her property and only able to be slowed down by the failsafe built into the event, until she had to be stopped by Nepeta.
** Saori, during the same event, was ''worse''.
** [[MinionWithAnFInEvil Affected with an F in Yandere]]: Elsie. The object of her "affection" was, as in canon, [[CargoShip fire trucks]], and she couldn't bring herself to destroy even a toy one when the arcana reversed.
** [[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion Asuka]], on the other hand, [[{{Tsundere}} was more or less]] [[NoSocialSkills "Reversed" the entire time]].
** Looking away from the Lovers event for a moment, [[http://tvk.dreamwidth.org/194219.html here's an example]] of being yandere for your ''kid''. Uh...
* ZombieApocalypse: The October 2011 event was this in a nutshell, courtesy of the [[TarotMotifs Death Arcana]].
