[[caption-width:350:The silent protagonist of Persona 3 FTW in action]]

''[[http://www.theduckwebcomics.com/Persona_3_FTW/5123028/ Persona 3 FTW]]'' is a webcomic based on the game ''{{Persona 3}}'' written and drawn by J.C. Scott aka Strain42. Every day, one or more (often 5 for boss fights, even 20 for the games final boss events.) comics are posted involving the events of the day in the game. For instance, the captioned comic was posted on June 8th and shows the aftermath of a boss fight on that day in the game.

The comic has been completed (three times), covering the events of The Journey, [[PlayableEpilogue The Answer]], and Persona 3 F, which focuses on the Female Protagonist; on April 6, 2011, the comic was declared be completely finished. The comic enjoys high popularity on DrunkDuck, consistently ranking in the top ten comics during periods of high comic output; on January 6th, 2010, the comic first attained the number 1 ranking on DrunkDuck. According to Strain42, more than 4.5 million views have been recorded from the first page to the last.

The author is also working on both a sequel involving ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'' (''Persona4TW''), ''VideoGame/{{Persona}}'' (''[[http://www.theduckwebcomics.com/Persona_Won/5387097/ Persona Won]]'') and ''[[RaidouKuzunohaVsTheSoullessArmy Raidou Kuzunoha]] the 19th''. On Superbowl Sunday 2010, the author posted the first comic for one day only (the day holding special significance to him as a gamer) and on April 11th 2010, as a special promotion for a one year wait the author posted the first 5 comics of ''Persona4TW'' for the day. He recently announced that after ''Persona Won'' was done he'd do ''Persona4TWAddOn'', based on ''Persona4Arena'', which sees the return of Mitsuru, Akihiko, and Aigis. [[spoiler: And probably Fuuka. And Elizabeth too.]]

!!''Persona 3 FTW'' provides examples of:

* AdaptationDistillation: All the social link and plot stuff is there, it's just funnier.
* AffectionateParody
* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: The comic interprets many characters differtly than the game; notably, the MC is a CloudCuckooLander to the extreme, while the [=FeMC=] is a CloudCuckooLander [[BewareTheNiceOnes but quite violent]]. [[invoked]]
* AnticlimaxBoss: The Strega battle during the Hanged Man Shadow boss fight just had the group push Takaya and Jin off the bridge. [[invoked]]
** The solo-Jin battle consisted of the MC critical hitting Jin, then wiping him out with an all out attack. WordOfGod confirms this is what happened when he loaded the battle from a save file.
* ArousedByTheirVoice: Takaya. The author's quite enraptured by Creator/DerekStephenPrince's voice.
--->'''Yukari:''' I know he just locked us in here, which is bad and stuff, but...does anyone else want to have sex with his voice?
--->'''[[[EvenTheGuysWantHim Everyone]] raises their hands.]'''
* AsYouKnow: Played with Ikutsuki.
* ArtEvolution: Compare the first comics with the recent ones.
** In fact, compare the comic above to [[http://www.theduckwebcomics.com/Persona_3_FTW/index.php?p=745305 this one with the FeMC.]] The evolution's subtle, but it's there.
* AxCrazy: The MC in [[http://www.theduckwebcomics.com/Persona_3_FTW/index.php?p=546538 this strip.]] Or whenever he's around Bebe.
* BlatantLies: Yukari denying the fact she may or may not have bought a sex toy online.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: The normal portrayal of the [=FeMC=] is as a cute, CloudCuckooLander, but violent girl. Including ''tearing off the pigtails'' of a girl who harassed her friend.
* BigBallOfViolence
* BigEater: The best way to the MC's heart is through his stomach.
* ButtMonkey: Ken during The Answer. He seems to escape this in the main plot because he's OutOfFocus. [=FeMC=], however...
* CatSmile
* CatchPhrase: For Akihiko: Ya dumb broad.
** [[AmericanAccents "Like, I know, right?!"]] from your basic random schoolgirls to Ryoji.
* CharacterExaggeration: For everyone.
* CloudCuckooLander: The Main Character (both male and female), without saying a single word, though the female occasionally acts as the [[OnlySaneMan Only Sane Woman]].
* CreepyChild: ([[spoiler: Pharos.]])
** But he gave MC a ([[spoiler: Chocolate platypus!]])
* CuteBruiser: The [=FeMC=]. Isn't she just adorable when she hurts people who tick her off?
** Due to the art style, ''everyone'' who would be a bruiser (cute or otherwise), is now this trope.
* DoomyDoomsOfDoom: [[http://www.theduckwebcomics.com/Persona_3_FTW/index.php?p=546534 'Back at the Legion of Doom']]
* EvenTheGuysWantHim: [[http://www.theduckwebcomics.com/Persona_3_FTW/index.php?p=591894 It's all in the voice, for Takaya]]
* FanPreferredCouple: Throughout the course of the comic, the story contains a lot of MC/Aigis and just recently, [=FeMC=]/Shinjiro (to the point of giving Shinjiro a Two-week long Social Link Arc). [[invoked]]
* FastballSpecial: The [=FeMC=] does this with Koromaru [[http://www.theduckwebcomics.com/Persona_3_FTW/index.php?p=772881 against a would-be shrine vandal.]]
* {{Filler}}: Not a FillerStrip, but rather on time comics that are filling in for days that the game pretty much just skips over. This can mainly be seen on the [[http://www.theduckwebcomics.com/Persona_3_FTW/index.php?p=638464 internship arc]].
* FunnyBackgroundEvent: [[http://www.theduckwebcomics.com/Persona_3_FTW/index.php?p=673718 The MC's table catching fire]], which is also a ShoutOut to WebAnimation/ZeroPunctuation.
* GunsAreWorthless: In the final battle against Takaya, Akihiko wonders if [[spoiler:Shinjiro]]'s bones were made of cookies.
* HeadphonesEqualIsolation: Akihiko's LoveEpiphany in [=FeMC's=] [[http://www.theduckwebcomics.com/Persona_3_FTW/index.php?p=760487 Star Rank 9]] ends up being the victim of this.
* HiddenObjectGame: The boss battles.
* HypocriticalHumor: In [=FeMC=] Justice 4, [[WordOfGod Scott states only Akihiko should say "Ya dumb broad"]], despite Jin saying it back when he was defeated by the male MC and co.
* IdiosyncraticEpisodeNaming: The majority of The Journey and The Answer have very reference/in joke filled page titles.
* [[InfiniteAmmo Infinite Bread]]: [[http://www.theduckwebcomics.com/Persona_3_FTW/index.php?p=554500 TAKE THE BREAD!!!]]
* InnocentInnuendo: [[http://www.theduckwebcomics.com/Persona_3_FTW/index.php?p=550000 'It's too big. I'm pulling out.']]
* LikesOlderWomen: Kenji, even more than in the game. [[http://www.theduckwebcomics.com/Persona_3_FTW/index.php?p=549996 "If she were like 30 years older..."]]
* LovableSexManiac[=/=]StalkerWithACrush: Aigis
* LoveAtFirstSight: The Female MC, for Shinjiro.
* JumpingTheShark: Summer Uniforms, [[http://www.theduckwebcomics.com/Persona_3_FTW/index.php?p=566132 apparently]]. [[invoked]]
* MajorInjuryUnderreaction: [[http://www.theduckwebcomics.com/Persona_3_FTW/5127488/ Kaz's leg being twisted unnaturally? LET'S GET SOME TACOS]]
* {{Meganekko}}: Chihiro.
* MissingStepsPlan: [[http://www.theduckwebcomics.com/Persona_3_FTW/index.php?p=554504 This ill-conceived plan.]]
* MisterSeahorse: This is pretty much how Fuuka and Akihiko rationalize both the existence of [[spoiler: Ryoji/Pharos]] and [[http://www.theduckwebcomics.com/Persona_3_FTW/index.php?p=641344 the MC's weird cravings.]]
* NoodleIncident: Just how and why did Fuuka set manga on fire?
* OneOfUs: The creator of the comic mentions Tvtropes in Minako's version of the page picture.
* {{Otaku}}: Bebe
* PassThePopcorn
* PhraseCatcher: "Shut up, Ken."
* RunningGag: Every social link has, at some point, a frame involving the main character and the person with whom he is having the social link skipping off into the distance. For some social links this is ill-advised for the person in question ([[spoiler:Chariot]]) and others it really just doesn't work out at all ([[spoiler:Tower, [[CreepyChild Death]], [[IllBoy Sun]], [=FeMC's=] [[AbortedDeclarationofLove Star]], [=FeMC's=] [[BadassLongcoat Moon]]]]).
** Aigis' tendency to dry-hump and/or make out with the MC whenever possible.
** Almost ALL of the damage received by the characters in the entire series can be summed up in only one word: [[FeelNoPain "Ow."]]
** The author repeatingly inserting himself as a cameo'd toy version of himself, or off-handedly mentioning him or his own comic.
* SanitySlippage: Tanaka (whose rival is a coconut) gets more and more insane as the Devil Social Link progresses.
* ScrewYourself: Well technically they didn't GET that far, but the MC and [=FeMC=] making out [[RealityBreakingParadox caused an]] EarthShatteringKaboom.
* ShoutOut: [[http://www.theduckwebcomics.com/Persona_3_FTW/index.php?p=654368 Alternate title to this comic?]] [[Film/PulpFiction Pup Fiction]]
** And all the Maya comics are a ShoutOut to WebAnimation/ZeroPunctuation in art style.
** The final devil rank has a ''Creator/MontyPython'' joke.
** [[WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries Shut up Ken.]] Though unlike the series, he gets to finish his "No you shut up!" Probably because it was [[TookALevelInJerkass Yukari.]] Also in his {{Flashback}}:
---> '''Police Officer''': You kids and your anime and your video games and your [[PersonaTrinitySoul anime based off of video games.]]
* TriggerHappy: Chihiro oh so much.
* WallOfText: Used for a laugh with [[http://www.theduckwebcomics.com/Persona_3_FTW/index.php?p=554499 Maya]]
* TheVoiceless: The [=MCs=] have absolutely no dialogue apart from invoking their Persona for the first time.
* WithFriendsLikeThese: The MC is not the greatest friend ever.
* YourHeadAsplode: Apparently, listening to the Chairman's puns for the first time causes this.
* YourMom: Aigis's response to Akihiko asking why she couldn't open the door in the Chariot/Justice boss fight.
