Fake Me is a Persona 4 fanfiction that takes place a week after the events of Persona 4: Arena. Written by Reaching Out FES

This work contains examples of:

  • After Action Patch Up: Girls, Minako or Inaba girls, tend to tend to Yu's wounds a lot after a battle.
  • Aloof Big Brother: Played with, Makoto is technically Minako's big brother, but he's not only aloof to her but Yu and the rest of the gang.
  • Battle Couple: Yu's and Minako's feelings for each other are implied, and later confirmed, so that along with their fighting together invokes this trope.
  • The Casanova: Yu, kinda lampshaded by himself.
    "His smile makes the girls swoon!"
  • Did Not Get the Girl: Sadly for Yu, Minako faded into nothingness. Also, same goes for Aigis with Makoto, as the same fate with Minako happened to Makoto.
  • Everyone Can See It: Everyone can see Yu and Minako care for each other that's beyond friendship... More specifically, Makoto keeps saying Minako is Yu's girlfriend.
  • Forceful Kiss: Implied, and not the good kind either. Entity does this to Minako.
  • From Dress to Dressing: Minako's ribbon to Yu's wound on head.
  • He's Back!: Yu recovers from his Heroic BSoD at the very end of the fic.
  • Heartbroken Badass: Yu and Aigis at the end. Yu gets better.
  • Heroic BSoD:
    • Minako, twice. Once when her shadow friends died. Second when she starts to have an internal fight with the Entity.
    • Aigis and Yu have this at the end of the fic too, or at least is implied.
    • Yu at least was shown to have gotten better.
  • I Have You Now, My Pretty: Mavolent Entity does this with an out-of-it Minako.
  • Teddie flirting with Minako
  • Yukiko crushing on Yu
  • Yosuke seems to have a little bit of Shipping Goggles himself as he sees Chie and Yu.
  • Naoto blushes around Yu
  • Really any girl with Yu since he's a lady killer.
  • The chapters are references to songs, Strength by abingdon boys school, Guilty Crown's opening song "The Everlasting Guilty Crown", and Persona 3 Portable's Opening Soul Phase.
  • Even the fics Title is a reference to the song Fake Me by Itou Kanako.
  • Cowardly Mayas, your first enemies in the game in P3, come back! As allies no less!
  • You Didn't Ask: Aigis replies with this after being questioned why she didn't reveal sooner that she had a GPS built in.
