I've worked out who Teddie is... *SPOILER*

#1Bisected8Posted 1/31/2013 4:34:06 PM(edited)
He's ATLUS's shadow, representing their need to make sure their games make a profit in the form of a cutesy mascot character.

Since marketing also needs good PR he has a bear-y friendly personality, but no understanding of the real world.

Shadow Teddie represents ATLUS Europe.

Atlus already have a mascot though. He should've been Teddie Frost or Jack Teddie or something.

Doesn't Teddie get a Jack Frost color option in Persona 4 Arena?

But Teddie isn't Atlus's mascot, just a representation of their need for one. =P

Jack Frost, Pyro Jack, King Frost, Black Frost, Jack the Ripper, Raihou and Ace Frost would like to have a word with you.

(Jack the Ripper by the way is from the Virtua Boy game Jack Bros. by Atlus)

What about?

I said he was their shadow, not their mascot. The fact they have one supports the idea.

So if Teddie is Atlus' Shadow does that mean Jack Frost is Atlus' Persona? No wonder they use Jack Frost so much!
On a serious note, isn't Jack Frost the official mascot of Atlus/SMT?
