Marie's character design and attitude.

I found her to be very inconsistent. Her S.Link is nothing special. It has some nice moments here and there, on the other hand she will sometimes overplay her incrediblynotfunnyspeechquirk. Her poems, while nothing particularly impressive themselves, really allowed her VA to shine and add a lot of expression and emotion to her otherwise dull personality. Then, immediately after, we have the almost physically painful "OMG! Stop readin mah poems! Erm, I-I mean they're soooo not mine!! *grumble grumble* *blush blush*" scenes which just became more annoying and pathetic as time went on.

Again though, she also has some cool moments whether it's referencing hiimdaisy or getting under Rise's skin. Overall though, her dull/annoying moments outweigh her enjoyable moments to me which just left me feeling underwhelmed. I'm glad she's in the game though, if nothing more than to antagonize Rise.


True, but you can pretty much say that about most of the S. Links in the game. It's pretty much dull moments until something happens in the last scenes. Marie was amusing, in a very different way than the other characters. Plus, the "later" part of the game adds a lot to the S. Link. I guess that's why I like it so much :)

Yosuke's archetype? Played to death. Chie's? Yep. Yukiko's? Yep. Teddie? Yep. Notice a pattern here?


yup and that's why i dont get why everyone likes persona 4's character so much


I guess people are okay with stereotypical characters if done well. Persona 4 focuses on character development and story more than other RPGs, so maybe that's why people like them. They're also very memorable. BTW if you think about it, what character in any videogame DOESN'T fit into an overplayed archetype? Barely any.

If you're talking about my original post in this topic, you should know I was joking. None of these characters are perfect. And fans do tend to "overrate" them. Maybe overrated is a better word for these characters. They're not terrible by any means, and some people loved the story and grew attached to them,

LOL. Yeah, there are a lot of people that praise the game too much, but hey it's not their fault. The game is seriously one of the most compelling JRPGs of all time. (I'm not trying to overrate it, just stating my personal opinion.) The story didn't captivate me as much as Persona 3 did, and the characters are still cliche like most anime/rpg characters are....but the game is very special.

If you hate what the fanbase has to say, I suggest you don't go to any of the Persona boards because uh...most people love those games.

Most overrated? Well, I don't see Persona being in the same level as Call Of Duty, Halo, Final Fantasy, Pokemon, Mario, Zelda, etc. The series has gotten popular because of P3, the fighting game and the anime but it's still not that popular compared to a lot of series.

There are WAY more overrated "pieces of media" than this, trust me.

She looks like she came out straight from deviantart.

And the writing is fanfiction-mary-sue tier.
