* MockingTheMourner: During [[spoiler:Sinjiro's memorial service at Gekkoukan after he sacrifices himself to save Ken]], two students in front of the protagonist and Junpei call him "just some punk", which leads to Junpei (and optionally the protagonist) angerly telling them to shut up.

* EveryGirlIsCuterWithHairDecs:
** The female MC. They're even symbolic: The MC is consistently equated with the "Fool" arcana, which is card #0 among the Major Arcana. However, it's also called card #22. Guess what roman numerals her hair decorations look like?
** Possibly unintentional, but the hair decorations also coincide with ''Portable'' being released in Japan 22 years after the original [=MegaTen=] title.


* An Aesop: There are times people afraid of death or wanted to die. But you have to remember that you are a mortal. And when you have someone you cared about died. You have to talk about your problem and move on not just for your sake, for someone you cared about too.

** Early in the game, the possibility of being able to summon a Persona without an Evoker is briefly brought up, as if the game was trying to set up some kind of future plot point. However, this is never mentioned again.

** Again in Portable's unique opening. [[spoiler:Both protagonists at the end are seen over a coffin and are about to use their evokers and the screen turns red when they shoot.]] Also some double imagery is seen with regards to [[spoiler:October 4th. In one half of the screen Ken is calmly standing but in the other half, he's putting his evoker to his head and Shinjiro can be seen in an escalator behind him.]] Also in the "rapid montage" the group shot of SEES is sandwiched by the love interests in the group.

* TheHeroDies: Loosely implied in the good ending, where [[spoiler:the main character uses a move that requires all of his HP to seal Nyx away. Then when the game picks up again a month later, he keeps thinking to himself how very tired he is and the game ends with him closing his eyes and finally "falling asleep" in Aigis's lap as [[GoIntoTheLight the light shines on him and the screen fades to white.]]]] Outright confirmed in ''The Answer'', where [[spoiler:the main character's death]] is the main source of conflict.
** [[spoiler:[[NotHisSled Completely averted in]] [[SparedByTheAdaptation the manga adaptation.]]]]

* ''Theater/Persona3TheWeirdMasquerade'': A stage play that features either the male or female protagonist, depending on the date. Like the Manga and the Movie, this provides new official names for them - "Sakuya Shiomi" and "Kotone Shiomi", respectively.
