    Color Palettes 
A tradition of ArcSys fighters. In general the references follow a pattern. The 8th palette is more often than not for Guilty Gear, the 9th for BlazBlue, the 10th for Persona (specifically the first four games), the 11th for Under Night In-Birth, the 12th for RWBY and the 13th for Shout-Outs to various other media. Let's go through the list, shall we?


  • Makoto goes full Kenshiro when performing Planet Crusher, complete with shouting "You're already dead!!" on the final punch.
  • Weiss and Blake's pre-battle quote is a reference to Muhammad Ali's famous quote; "Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee."
  • One particular move of Blake has her throwing her Gambol Shroud at her opponent while shouting "Get over here!"
  • Yang activating her Semblance when her health goes red is very much reminiscent of Jin Saotome's Saotome Shine Hyper Combo from the Marvel vs. Capcom series, which also immediately activates and powers him up under similar circumstances.
  • When Yosuke runs into Jubei in Episode P4A, he asks if he is in Wonderland. This doubles as a nod to Persona Q, where the first labyrinth is a Alice in Wonderland-themed locale titled "You in Wonderland."
  • In the True Ending, after defeating the boss, Yosuke wonders if it's really over, thinking it's the "This isn't even my final form!" cliche.
