* Labrys' escape from the Kirijo Group's research facility. After being forced to fight against and destroy her sister units one by one, including Unit #024 -- her closest friend -- the researcher's threat to erase the memories that she inherited from her sisters is the final straw; she snaps and rebels, willing to fight in order to hold onto them and the promise that she made to #024. She breaks through restraints rated for over twice the force her mechanical body is capable of producing through ''sheer force of will,'' then effortlessly evades an entire squad of armed security forces. Finally, when faced with an insurmountable gate, she summons her Persona for the first time and breaks it down with a single blow. Ultimately, she is stopped and recaptured upon her discovery that she is trapped on a faraway island, but the damage that she caused to the laboratory was so extensive that the researchers were unable to erase her memories anyway!]]

* When taking his whole arc into consideration, Yosukeís story mode is a complete, prolonged moment of awesome for him. Hereís this guy whoís always felt insecure and, as he admits in the previous game, secretly felt envious of his leader/best friend even though he loyally followed him to the end in order to finally find the truth and the murderer of his crush. Come this new adventure, and his story puts him on a role on which he finds himself with a pretty girl whose life not only depends on him, but ONLY on him, since the way the story presents the circumstances, as he wins fight after fight, he realizes he canít be just TheLancer anymore, he canít just be the second one after Yu or anyone else. This time, he HAS to be the hero, or else this girl whom heís rapidly falling for might presumably die the same way his former crush did. And not only heís confronted with this pressure, or the fact that he ends up having to face opponents that he canít help considering to be stronger than him, but also the conspiracy of the Malevolent Entity that ends up making him believe that all thatís happening is just his fault, staged for the sake of his wishes of wanting to be special, and though he almost fell for a moment, he pulls through thanks to the power of friendship, overcomes all remaining obstacles, and truly saves the day. Heís truly become the hero he always wanted to be, and yet, when heís there, he truly doesnít care about it anymore. All he cares is that he managed to help Labrys and everyone is safe. Itís really no wonder the Manga adaptation follows his storyline the most.
** Hell, even his match-ups are awesome. Because in his story, Yosuke the ButtMonkey defeats [[spoiler: Yu AND Aigis, two Wild Card users, as well as both Labryses, two incredibly powerful androids.]]
* Mitsuru has had enough of [[spoiler:the Malevolent Entity masquerading as her]] and draws her sword. Cue ThemeMusicPowerUp as "Burn My Dread" begins to play and both Aigis ''and'' Akihiko step back to let her settle it one-on-one.
* Yu figures out the trick that [[spoiler: his friends aren't saying the things that he's hearing, and that the Teddie and Rise doing the announcements are impostors,]] after his very first fight. He then taunts General Teddie about this and tells him that the trick doesn't work on him, which causes a small VillainousBreakdown, [[spoiler: to the point where the illusions (save Nanako's) actually break down and he hears Labrys' true thoughts.]]

** There's also another one that doesn't overlap, but still awesome. Kanji is confronted by his Shadow [[spoiler:actually the Malevolent Entity]], who tries to rip his resolve. Unlike Yosuke, Chie and Yukiko (see [[Heartwarming/Persona4Arena the heartwarming sections]] for them)Ö Kanji instead fixes his resolve on his own by punching himself in the face, admitting his fault, then proceeds to renovate the Shadow's ass himself.
* Naoto ''instantly'' seeing through [[spoiler: the Malevolent Entity's attempt to masquerade as her Shadow, verbally bitchslapping it for the utter failure of its plans and mocking it for attempting to fool her in such an obvious way. All the more impressive because it actually ''acknowledges'' her flawless analysis and applauds her for seeing through it so quickly and easily. When the Eldritch Horror is complimenting your detective skills, you've got a lot to be proud of. To top it off, before fighting it, she expressed disappointment that she didn't get to fight anyone's Shadows... and would like to feel how it's like, by kicking the Entity's ass.]]
** Yu's Arcade mode had a similar moment. [[spoiler: When the entity tries to masquerade as his shadow, Yu immediately realizes that something fishy is going on since his persona (which he still has) and his shadow can't coexist; he then beats the crap out of it.]]

** [[spoiler: And then, seemingly beaten, she still somehow manages to preserve her final wish unto the next two generations of android, ensuring among other things that the events of Persona 3 take place. In summation, Labrys saved the entire human race IN HER SLEEP.]]
* At the end of Elizabeth's story mode, Yu, despite having ''just'' lost to her, demands a rematch because he refuses to just give up when his friends are there. He then, with ThePowerOfFriendship, starts to radiate a power that thoroughly intimidates Elizabeth, who, with the possible exception of [[spoiler: the Malevolent Entity]], is otherwise the most powerful character in the game by far. ''That'' is the true power of the Wild Card.

** [[spoiler: ''Curbstomping'' doesn't even cover it; she ''one-hits the damn thing''. And if the dialogue is anything to go by, it's usually with ''HER BARE HANDS.'']]

(And a world with which she had absolutely no familiarity, to boot). Mitsuru knew what she was doing when she asked Fuuka for help.

For all they knew, this was Ken's ''actual'' EnemyWithout, and Ken manages to muster the resolve to face it alone, with Kanji remarking that this is something he has to do. Not only that, but Ken fights to protect Kanji and Naoto because he doesn't want a repeat of three years ago (i.e. [[spoiler: someone dying for him]]) to ever happen again. Really shows how much Ken has [[CharacterDevelopment developed]] since Persona 3.

Heís truly become the hero he always wanted to be, and yet, when heís there, he truly doesnít care about it anymore. All he cares is that he managed to help Labrys and everyone is safe.
