- Acclaimed Flop: While the game was received well alongside Persona 3: Dancing in Moonlight in Japan, both of them had the weakest sales in the entire series (they even disappeared from the charts one week after their debut), making them the worst-selling games in the franchise.
- Meme Acknowledgment: Atlus USA referenced Goro Akechi's memetic love of pancakes (when he only mentions "delicious pancakes" once in Persona 5) by calling him "everyone's favorite pancake-loving detective" in the description of the trailer for his pre-order bonus.
- What Could Have Been: One of the scrapped designs for Yusuke's crossdressing outfit was an oiran outfit,◊ rejected for being unfeasible technically. Considering what an oiran is... it's probably best this way.
