Webcomic: Persona 4 TW Add On
Persona 4 TW Add On is the sequel to both Persona 3 FTW and Persona 4 TW, both done by J.C. Scott, aka Strain42. It is based on the fighting game Persona 4 Arena, itself a sequel to the games Persona3 and Persona4.On December 20th, J.C. Scott confirmed that Persona 4TW Add-On would begin on February 11th, 2013 (after Persona Won has finished). The comic officially launched on The Duck on that date as an attachment to Persona 4TW. Prior to the official launch three preview comics were shown on Strain's Facebook page.
Persona 4TW Add-On provides examples of:
- Abhorrent Admirer: Elizabeth towards Aigis.
- Chie to Akihiko
- And Your Reward Is Clothes: Strain plans on putting some comics through what he calls a "Persona Filter" to demonstrate this trope. The preview comic where this is featured has Teddie in his Jack Frost skin.
- Big Damn Heroes: Appears a lot. Elizabeth and Fuuka in particular.
- Brick Joke: Elizabeth's flirty attitude towards Aigis in P3 The Answer was a one-shot gag since she didn't appear much. Come P4 Add-On, her crush has gone on full-blown stalker mode.
- Call Forward: Also a lot for any future Sequel Hook. Marie's and Crazy Boyfriend Chick's names in Yu's phonebook list.
- Continuity Nod: "Ya dumb broad!"
- Critical Research Failure: Teddie experiences one when he meets Akihiko and says that according to Trinity Soul you lose your Persona powers once you become an adult.
- Teddie: Why did I watch that? *gets smacked in the face*
- Eccentric Millionaire: Mitsuru plays herself up as this to get her way. And also offers the police force Kirijo research.
- Fan-Preferred Couple: This comic basically ships Chie and Akihiko.
- Hard-Drinking Party Girl: Margaret is turned into one. Well, what else could you do if you reside in a limo with unlimited liquor and wine?
- Medium Awareness: Teddie, as per usual and General Teddie too.
- Ominous Foreshadowing: Lampshaded and parodied like hell.
- Palette Swap: The aforementioned "Persona Filters".
- Punny Name: P4 MC's name is used as a pun more than once in the comics.
- Suddenly Voiced: The Persona 4 MC, now known as Yu.
- Ship Sinking: Rise and Yu when they are reunited. MC is not amused. Only time (or possibly Gold'n) will tell if they will get back together.
- Talking Is a Free Action: Something which is considerably lampshaded, parodied, and played straight here.
- Shadow Labrys (towards Elizabeth): STOP IGNORING ME, BITCH!!
