* One of the Mementos Targets in-game is a ''Yoshitsune''. Yes, that one. Furthermore, this target can actually ''instantly kill'' your party members with Hassou Tobi unbuffed and has Heat Riser and Charge just like yours.
* Think that Lavenza can't All-Out Attack? ''Wrong''! If you don't deal enough damage after a number of turns, she does this by downing you as usual, then ''splitting back into Caroline and Justine'' to do the All-Out Attack before merging as one.

*** Back at the battle, the Thieves manage to stand up once again, inspired by everyone cheering them on. As the belief tracker hits 100%, Joker summons Arsène and breaks its chains, who disappears in a flash of light. At first, everyone thinks that nothing happened, and the BigBad begins to berate their failed attempt... then DramaticThunder sounds, dark clouds spreading across the sky and plunging the whole city into nighttime. Then Joker's's Ultimate Persona, [[SatanIsGood Satanael]], descends from the heavens and it's MASSIVE, towering over the Thieves and standing as tall as (perhaps ''even moreso'' than) the gargantuan BigBad, wearing an intense, focused DeathGlare [[AssKickingPose as he spreads his arms wide]].

** A rather overlooked one just before that: Joker and his friends have just been RetGone from the world due to a god-like Treasure and the people's utter lack of care for their efforts. Justine and Caroline, who had grown to be friendly towards him, berate and mock him for his failure right before [[BigGood Igor]] tells him how he failed and how humanity is doomed to ruin, ordering his execution. And while they are shocked, both wardens comply and prepare for his death. He's alone, his friends are probably gone from existence, and all his efforts are for nothing, while death approaches from two of his biggest allies. So what does Joker do? Gets back up anyway, his rebellious will summoning his Phantom Thief persona ''in the Velvet Room'', DEFYING Igor's order for his execution. Not only that, he withstands the combined force of two beings whose power is only succeeded by the Treasure who defeated him, and Igor, through sheer willpower long enough to snap Justine and Caroline out of it. The entire ending to the game happened simply because Joker was THAT defiant.

* The whole game is a love letter to the idea of the Superhero and the WakeUpGoToSchoolSaveTheWorld trope. A lot of the thieves talk about watching Saturday Morning Cartoons in their youth and wanting to emulate what they saw, heroes taking down villains, or in Ann's case, a confident con-woman getting one over on her pursuers and escaping custody. Every awakening feels like watching a Power Ranger/Super Sentai statement of purpose leading into the morphing sequence, and there are numerous times the camera holds on the thieves as a group in various pre-asskicking poses, like before the final phase of the boss fight in the fourth palace, and before fighting TheDragon in the fifth palace. The game also lampshades the [=PThieves=]’ foolishness in talking about being the Phantom Thieves in public places where anyone could overhear them and texting each other about their plans for heists and knowledge of the Metaverse in general. When Makoto confronts them with evidence of their activities, they’re beholden to her plans for a time. And when someone hacks their group text, they can’t believe someone could actually do that and force them to do their bidding. Fortunately for them, Futaba is sympathetic to their cause and only did this to get their attention.

** Joker, about to be killed by Kamoshida's lackeys, lets out a burst of DramaticWind, which frees him up enough to feel up the mask that's appeared on his face. He then bloodily and painfully ''rips the mask off'', and flashes a pure PsychoticSmirk complete with yellow eyes. Then blue fire starts encasing Joker as Arsène lets out the most ''chilling'' EvilLaugh, the flames giving Arsène form even as Joker is left with his snazzy new outfit. With a stylish flick of Joker's hands, Arsène unfolds his wings and sends Kamoshida's lackeys flying into the wall. The whole scene is reminiscent of [[Anime/CodeGeass Lelouch first gaining Geass]] (appropriately enough considering his [[Creator/JunFukuyama voice actor]].)

** In the first battle, with him and Azathoth, the two of them are protected by three tentacles. One of the tentacles will reduce all the damage Azathoth takes to one, one will constantly heal Takuto, and the last will cast buffs. And Takuto always revives them after every turn, so you'll have to constantly fight them back as you fight the boss. However, the trick is that the tentacles all have weaknesses, and since there are three of them, that means that the party can perform full party Baton Pass chains to lay the hurt down on Takuto.

However, the trick is that the tentacles all have weaknesses, and since there are three of them, that means that the party can perform full party Baton Pass chains to lay the hurt down on either Azathoth or Takuto.


** After you defeat Azathoth, Takuto takes back his treasure and uses it to restore his original Persona Adam Kadmon back. When the Phantom Thieves still manage to win, Takuto fuses with Adam Kadmon, which makes it NighInvulnerable, until Futaba pinpoints its weakness in its head. However, it's only vulnerable while its attacking, so the Thieves channel all the Persona powers in order block the attack long enough for Joker to grapple up to the head and and shoot it directly, breaking Takuto's mask.

After defeating Takuto for good, Takuto calls Joker down for one last fight not as Persona users but as two former friends who need to air out their feelings.
