Is it canon that the MC did not max any social links? Why are all the characters in Persona 4 Arena using the unpowered up personas?

I guess I like the design of the persona before looking than the max bond though. Youske's disco ninja frog was way better than the spandex hula hoop. Kanji's death metal electrocution robot was also better then the flame (seriously, fire?) samurai robot.

I'm not sure we can use the characters' lack of tier 2 personas as evidence.

We know for sure that maxing Teddie's SL is canon, but he's using Kintoki-Douji instead of Kamui in Arena.

I'm guessing the most logical reason is to avoid spoilers for people who haven't played P4 yet.

But they did put the final forms of all the P3 characters' personas, so idk....

Because those are not optional.

Symbolically it also bring emphasis to show that the P3 cast is a group of more experience Persona-users than high school kids still trying to master theirs.

Canon-wise, I would Yu would have maxed every single S. Link.

I think it was the developer's decision to go with their initial persona's due to game play design.

I've always thought that Yu maxed out every link in the game..

They use the original Personas because they are more iconic to the characters... basically it was an aesthetic choice.

This. Purely a design choice.

There is no canon in regards to social link completion.
The only definitive events are the beginning, the true ending, and the major events that happened inbetween.

It's pretty safe to say that the party members' S.Links are canon. P4A references several pieces of party-S.Link-only information.
