Persona 4 Golden Walkthrough

Personas

Personas are the creatures Persona 4 revolve around! Each main character has their own Persona that will be “reborn” to a newer, stronger Persona once their Social Link is maxed out. Some will even become reborn a second time after the S.Link is maxed out!

The Protagonist, however, can have up to 12 total Persona cards in his hand at any one time once you have reached a high enough level.

The first Persona, Izanagi of the Fool arcana, is given to the player, but the others must be obtained after battle through Shuffle Time or by Fusion in the Velvet Room.

What do you do with Personas? Well, each character’s Persona gradually levels up through Experience after a battle. New Skills will be obtained, through both leveling up and building Social Links, as well as through Skill Cards also found during Shuffle Time or Chagall CafĂ© in Okina City.

The Protagonist’s Personas can be fused together or registered in the Compendium.

The 24 Arcanum

All of the personas stand as representatives for one of 24 different Arcanum. The name of these Arcanum do not necessarily have any bearing on which Personas are categorized within them, however, there are some commonalities within groupings.

The Personas are divided into 24 Arcanum. Personas in each Arcana may receive an EXP Boost when fusing if you have advanced the relevant Social Links. For more information on the Arcana, the Social Link attached to it, and Personas available in it, click one below:

Aeon Fool Judgment Star
Chariot Fortune Justice Strength
Death Hanged Man Lovers Sun
Devil Hermit Magician Temperance
Emperor Hierophant Moon Tower
Empress Jester Priestess The World

Fusing Personas

persona_4_golden_fusion_table

Specific Fusions

Igor will allow you the option to Fuse Personas in The Velvet Room. Present him with either two or three cards to fuse to create one new Persona. At a certain point within the narrative, Igor will allow you to fuse four, five, or six Personas into one, called Cross-, Pentagonal-, and Hexagonal-fusion, respectively.

However, as concrete as the options may appear, Fusion is not an absolute process. An “accident” can happen. When a fusion accident occurs, you will not fuse the Persona you might have been anticipating, so be sure to save your game before you fiddle around. (The first time an accident occurs, you receive the The Nose Doesn’t Always Know trophy.)

Searching for Fusions

If you don’t wish to mix and match the cards you have to find the right Persona, you can choose the “Search” option in the Fuse menu to find the right Persona you wish to create. Only the Personas that can be created from the cards you have will be in this menu.

Before fusing, you can check the Fusion Forecast in the Fuse menu of the Velvet Room. The Fusion Forecast shows bonuses that may be granted to newly-fused Personas. Sometimes a requirement must be met before this bonus is given, and sometimes it will be given to all Personas. Only the current day and the next day will be shown in the forecast at any given time.

Persona Compendium

The Persona Compendium is list of all Personas you have collected. After obtaining a Persona, go here to register the ones you currently have. Registering a Persona will allow you to recall the Persona with the same stats and skills at a later time, even if you already fused the Persona into another Persona. However, doing so will cost Money.

Persona Statistics

Each Persona has their own status screen. The screen will show their affinity to the eight different Elements.

      • Physical
      • Fire
      • Ice
      • Electricity
      • Wind
      • Light
      • Darkness
      • Almighty

Each can have one of five effects on a Persona. These effects are:

Combat Effects
Resist Block Drain Repel Weak
Str Nul Dr Rpl Wk
Damage is reduced Damage does nothing Damage restores HP Damage is shot back at attacker Damage does extra, and knocks down

The Persona’s Statistics will affect the person they are attached to.

Basic Stats
Stat Use
Strength Indicates the effectiveness of a Persona's Physical Skills.
Magic Indicates the effectiveness of a Persona's Magic Skills and Magic Defense.
Endurance Indicates the effectiveness of a Persona's Physical Defense.
Agility Affects a Persona's Hit and Evasion rates.
Luck Affects the possibility of a Persona performing Critical Hits and other things.

Persona in Alphabetical Order

Perhaps you know the name of a Persona but don’t wish to look through each Arcana. Here is a list of all Persona available in Persona 4 Golden in Alphabetical Order. It doesn’t look like I have enough time to transport every single Persona into the guide, unfortunately. They’re still available at IGN’s Wiki.

    Seriously, LOVE your IGN Guide!
    But….it only goes up to May 19th….where’s the rest?
    You mention here that it’s a complete guide so…what happened to the rest of it??

    • I didn’t do that day by day walkthrough. I did the abridged walkthrough. Check out those pages. They’re complete and everything.

    • Kez Fitzgerald

      I was disappointed as well, but then I decided to help myself to it, so I’m currently working on the day-by-day walkthrough. Since I was puzzled on what to do for a little bit, I went ahead in the game on my own, so you’ll notice that the guide will resume on May 21st. I started about a month ago, so it hasn’t gotten very far. (June 1st, right now.) Also, there is a long process of making sure I have every little aspect of the game complete, which involves creating multiple saves, multiple experiments, and sometimes, multiple playthroughs.

      And of course, I have a part-time job and my parents are pleased when I have social outings. So, it may be a while before it’s “complete.”

      Anyway, If you notice something that doesn’t match up with your game, or you have a question, PLEASE feel free to contact me or leave a comment in the guide. Thank you! ^_^
