Added DiffLines:

* GiantSpaceFleaFromNowhere: All of the labyrinth guardians in the game, especially the first three, most certainly felt this way when you first encounter them. [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]], [[spoiler:as they are all there for a reason that is not explained until the endgame.]]

** At the end of the fourth dungeon, Zen delivers this:
---> '''Zen:''' Rei, I...I remember everything now. [[spoiler:[[GodInHumanForm I am Chronos]], he wh has dominion over time...I came here to take you away.]]
** Which is shortly followed by ''this'':

** More than that, there are very few bosses or [=FOEs=] that are immune to to status effects like panic or poison. The latter is very powerful up until the late game as a way to greatly increase your damage while the former is a near complete distable. Both types of spells are also much cheaper to cast than offensive magic and have numerous supporting skills like Death's Scythe or Circle Recovery. Binds can also trivialize encounters by disabling their attacks or making it very difficult for bosses to hit you while at the same time forcing them to go last ''and'' making all your attacks hit, turning skills like Myriad Arrows into gamebreakers. Even the final boss, the three toughest [=FOEs=], Zeus and the Velvet siblings are vulnerable to panic.

Added DiffLines:

Added DiffLines:

* AscendedExtra: From a gameplay standpoint, Shinjiro, who was only a short-term party member in his core game [[spoiler:before dying]] but is playable for the entirety of this game.


* SuddenlyVoiced: The ''Persona 3'' protagonist, who had no real spoken lines in his game, and didn't make any voiced appearances in any spin-off games either. [[spoiler:Both characters are this at the end of their respective routes]].

His only other full speaking role would not come until ''Q2'', and given that ''Q2'' does not have a dub, this game is also his only fully voiced appearance in English.

* NoNameGiven[=/=]OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: The two protagonists are only referred to as either "Leader" or "Vice Leader" in the manga adaptation. In the game, whoever the player character selects is considered as "Leader" while the opposite protagonist is the "Vice Leader". The younger ''Persona 4'' heroes (Kanji, Naoto and Rise) use "Senpai" to refer to the P4 Hero while Teddie uses "Sensei".

* RedOniBlueOni: The protagonists have a bit of this going on. They're both the [[TheStoic calm, collected]] [[TheLeader leader-types]]; but the ''P4'' hero has more assertive body language and is quite obviously "The Boss" of his crew, while the ''P3'' hero leans more towards being TheQuietOne and acts as the "pillar" of his team rather than leader. In the route where they can speak, ''P4'' hero is more likely to make a quip, while ''P3'' hero takes awhile to warm up. It goes to their teams too; Investigation Team's members take potshots at each other, more open about their secrets, and visibly laidback with it - while many of [=SEE=]'s members are reserved, there's an air of professionalism between them, and even times where they're borderline hostile.

* RequiredPartyMember: Some requests require you to have a certain member in your party in order to complete it. For example, one request to investigate part of the Evil Spirit Club requires you to put [[NightmareFetishist Yukiko]] in your party. The battle against Elizabeth that allows the party to awaken to their Ultimate Personas requires that only both main protagonists show up to face her.

** Another InUniverse example occurs during the 3rd dungeon on the P4 route, where Yukiko reveals she's a ShipperOnDeck for... Kanji and Rise, of all people. Chie points out how little sense that makes.

* BossInMooksClothing: [=FOEs=] are an enemy type that shows up on most levels. They aren't run into normally but rather a fight starts when you walk into one or vice versa on the map. Almost all of them have some kind of gimmick and while most ignore you and may not even move, some will chase you down. Two of them that are particularly notable are the Festival Dudes and the Reaper. The first has much more powerful attacks than even normal [=FOEs=] as well as the ability to fully heal itself whenever it pleases. To beat it, you basically need to come at them it with a special party you wouldn't normally think to use[[note]]The player has to make up a four-man party using any of the guys barring Ken (because of his age), Koromaru and Teddie (because they aren't human). Elizabeth hints at this when the request to beat one of them is made available.[[/note]], which it accepts as a challenge and bars it from using Crazed Slash early on or Diarahan at all. The Reaper gets special navigator dialogue urging you to run immediately and for good reason: It's at least as strong as the final boss and can wipe you out in moments if you aren't prepared or get unlucky. Much of the final level is spent fleeing from, avoiding or blocking it so you can proceed.
