Persona 4 Golden Walkthrough:

				Version 1.20

About Me:
**********
This is the first FAQ/Walkthrough I've written!  I didn't think of writing an
FAQ/Walkthrough at first, but as I played through this game more, I really
enjoyed it, and I thought there were a lot of things I could write about that
would really help people as they played through this game for the first time.
I played Persona 4 on the PS2 and found it fun.  At the time, I didn't think I
would finish it so I checked it up on Wikipedia and SPOILED THE STORY FOR
MYSELF!!  Biggest mistake I made in a game, and I ended up being able to finish
the game.  But I enjoyed the game all the same, and played through it multiple 
times.

When I found out Persona 4 Golden was coming out, I was really happy, and then
learned it was on the PS Vita, which kind of upset me at first, because it
meant I had to buy another handheld console, but it was well worth the money,
and I don't regret the purchase one bit.

Please do not hesitate to contact me at gravesight@live.com and putting
Persona 4 Golden in the subject line to discuss any points with me.  I would
love to hear back from readers and am open to feedback.

Version History:
*****************
--------------
Version 1.00:  (Started December 15th 2013, Finished January 9th 2013)
--------------

Took a LOT more play time than I expected.  But in this version I have the
general walkthrough completed, as well as a majority of the Social Links.
Also have character analysis, combat, the entire walkthrough from start to
finish, optional bosses, Social Links, Quests, and the Midnight Trivia Quiz
answers.  I hopefully will have more additions as I get more time!

There is also some missing information (school lunches, scooter rides, etc.)
so I will need to do some more playthroughs to get that information!

--------------
Version 1.10: (Started January 10th 2013, Finished January 29th 2013)
--------------

This took a bit more time than I would have liked, but it came with a lot
more information and some updated parts.  There are still some incomplete
sections, but generally it wasn't too bad and is still pretty comprehensive.
I will go back and add/edit/fix sections as I see fit, but generally the
next few edits will be minor and won't affect the whole walkthrough too
much.

Added some Social Link information, added more information throughout the
walkthrough, added some normal playthrough data, and corrected some mistakes.
There may still be some missing information, but for the most part isn't too
major that the guide is useless without it.

--------------
Version 1.20: (Started February 1st 2013, Finished April 1st 2013)
--------------

Wow, this took longer than I expected.  I finished the game on Very Hard
Mode, or, at least I say I did.  I stopped somewhere near the end of the
game, but I'm quite confident of completing the game at the stage where I am
at, and will complete the game later when I have more time.  School work and
such has gotten in the way.  Also have some updates.

There is still quite a bit of quest stuff to finish, and I'll be honest here,
finishing up Ai's Social Link is really annoying because you need to do more
than one playthrough to do it.  I also have other information to put in, but
I will wait until later to do a more refined update, rather than the update
I do now.  Think of this update as more of a confirmation that everything I
have written is possible across all difficulties.

Introduction:
**************
For those of you playing the game for the first time, you're in for one of the
best experiences on the PS Vita.  Persona 4 Godlen is an incredibly fun game
that will take you a long time to finish, but each moment is absolutely worth
it, despite what you may feel at times.

For those who have played Persona 4 on the PS2, the game has improved quite a
bit, and in my opinion, is more enjoyable than the PS2 version due to the nice
additions.  You can get potentially longer playtime, and the new addition of
trophies makes some of the activities in Persona 4 Golden much more meaningful
than they were in Persona 4.

For those of you who have not bought the game and are just looking at what
people have written about the game, Persona 4 Golden is a very fun game and I
highly recommend you get it.  It is definitely worth the purchase, and even
buying a PS Vita just to play it.

********************
Story Introduction:
********************
In the town of Inaba, there is a murder mystery going on.  People are dying,
the town's police are baffled, and the murderer is getting more and more
elusive.

At the same time, a young man moves into Inaba to live with his uncle and
cousin.

He soon meets some friends and gets dragged into the mystery.  Can he and his
friends solve the mystery before it's too late?

**********************
Main Characters/Cast:
**********************
---------------------------
Protagonist (Yu Narukami):
---------------------------

This is the character you take control of in Persona 4 Golden.  He is a
transfer student from the city who moves to the countryside due to his parents
and their work.  He quickly bonds with Yosuke Hanamura and Chie Satonaka and is
quickly dragged into the murders that have been occuring in Inaba.  He is made
the Leader of the Investigation Team that is formed when Yosuke and Chie decide
to tackle the mystery.  He is a really good cook and has an air of coolness and
responsibility that earns him the trust and respect of not only his friends,
but the people around him.  He holds the Wild Card of the Persona users, thus
giving him the ability to wield multiple Personas at will.

There really isn't much to say in terms of personality, because that is
something you decide with your responses to the residents of Inaba.

My Opinion:

Really doesn't matter here.  As this character's personality and actions are
based on the player, everyone will be different.  However, I do feel the
character could be improved upon more in terms of looks and gender choices.
That is just me though, I am aware of the work it would take to make a female
counterpart and improve the looks.  But overall I like the Protagonist.

-----------------
Yosuke Hanamura:
-----------------

Like the Protagonist, he is a transfer student from the city who came a few
months before.  His father is the manager of Junes, a new supermarket chain.
As a result of Junes outperforming Inaba's local shopping district, stores are
closing down and a wave of dislike has been coming down on Junes.  Yosuke is
simply caught in the crossfire and is suffering because of it.  He also has a
knack for wanting to be special, wanting to be different, wanting something to
do.  This comes as a result of being in the countryside dealing with his issues
in his life as well as Junes.  Yosuke relates well to the Protagionist, and he 
is the Protagonist's partner as they solve the mysteries.  After facing his
true self, he gains his own Persona, and holds the Magician Arcana.

My Opinion:

Yosuke can be pretty nice and terribly stupid.  He's not the most intelligent
male I've seen, and his personality can be somewhat annoying at times, such as
when he believes he can be a "chick magnet" by obtaining a scooter.  But he is
very relatable when I think of how he wants to be special in a place that makes
him feel alone and boring.  He also matures a lot over the course of the game,
and makes a pretty good leader when he needs to.  Overall he's an idiot, but
this is mainly due to his desire for girls than actual stupidity, and you can 
see his changes overtime.  I like Yosuke for the most part.

---------------
Chie Satonaka:
---------------

Chie is a girl born and raised in Inaba.  She has a great fascination with
martial arts and meat.  She is one of the few friends who befriends the
Protagonist in his first few days in Inaba, introducing herself and her best
friend Yukiko.  She is dragged into the murder investigation by Yosuke, but
eventually becomes more personally invested as the murders proceed.  She is a
loyal friend and stays by the Protagonist throughout his time in Inaba.  After
facing his true self, Chie gains her own Persona and holds the Chariot Arcana.

My Opinion:

Chie's a nice girl.  I honestly think her obsession with meat is a little
frightening at times, but is quite good for comic relief at times.  She looks
a lot better in anime scenes than she does in the game, and that is one of her
better redeeming features.  She claims not to be too intelligent, but she has
more common sense than Yosuke.  Together with Yosuke they make great comic
relief.  Her personal crisis is harder to understand than the other characters,
but it doesn't make her any less likeable.  She's not always on my list of
people needed, but when I need enemies down, Chie never disappoints.

--------------
Yukiko Amagi:
--------------

Like Chie, Yukiko was born and raised in Inaba.  She is the daughter of the
manager at Amagi Inn who is swept up into the crisis of the murder mysteries
both internally and externally.  She is best friends with Chie and they have
an unshakeable bond.  She feels as if her own path in life is decided and is
upset at not being able to do something about it.  After being caught up in the
murder mysteries herself, she resolves to join the team, facing her true self
and gaining her Persona.  She holds the Priestess Arcana.

My Opinion:

Another girl that looks decent.  Her intelligence is greatly referenced in the
game, and it is quite real.  Her knowledge of events is very beneficial to the
team.  Her common sense disappears at times however, such as her curiousity in
legends and her interest in stage diving, which makes a great contrast in her
personality and lends to the comedic relief.  Her conflicts in the story are
very relatable, and she provides a very good analysis of what one would do in a
situation like hers.  She's also very good-looking in the anime.  At last.

---------------
Kanji Tatsumi:
---------------

A boy born and raised in Inaba, Kanji has spent most of his life in a complex
situation.  He grew up with his family in Tatsumi Textiles and his interests
revolved around arts and crafts.  His hobbies have alienated him from both boys
and girls alike, and his experiences with people have led him to become a
tough, withdrawn individual, and a bit of a delinquent.  He is dragged into the
murder mysteries and encounters the Protagonist and the team along the way.
After gaining his own Persona, Kanji joins the team and changes his ways,
proving to be a competent ally and a loyal friend.  He holds the Emperor
Arcana.

My Opinion:

Kanji is one of my favorite characters.  Not only does he provide great comic
relief, he also has a very similar situation to myself in trying to find people
who will accept him.  His growth over time is great and he really provides a
simple look at situations.  His intelligence isn't so high though, but hey,
apart from a few times it's not that irritating.

---------------
Rise Kujikawa:
---------------

A girl who was born in Inaba, but left to become an idol.  While maintaining a
great amount of success in the field, she has become increasingly disillusioned
about herself as an idol, and struggles to find her true identity as a person.
She returns to Inaba to take a break from being an idol, and is also caught up
in the murders.  After running into the Protagonist and the team, she joins
their team and supports them in combat.  She gains her own Persona after facing
herself and holds the Lovers Arcana.

My Opinion:

Rise is my favorite character by far, above Kanji and the Protagonist (if you
make him nice).  Most people don't like her, but I like her playful and
flirtatious personality very much.  Her inner conflict is also one that I can
relate to, and her methods of dealing with it and her subsequent realization
is something that I find absolutely amazing about her character.  I also think
she looks almost as good as Yukiko, which is good, because Rise looks nice in
the game and looks fantastic in the anime scenes.

-----------------
Naoto Shirogane:
-----------------

A detective who is investigating the murder mysteries in Inaba alongside the
police force.  He runs into the Investigation Team a number of times as the
story progresses, and eventually decides to launch his own investigation into
the murders.  After the Protagonist and the team manage to save Naoto from a
particularly deadly situation, Naoto asks to assist the team, gains a Persona
and provides logical insight into the situation.  He holds the Fortune Arcana.

My Opinion:

I find it a pity that Naoto is introduced so early, yet joins you quite late
in the story.  Still, I think Naoto is alright.  I don't necessarily feel the
same way in Naoto's inner conflict, yet there are some aspects that I do relate
to that make this character all the more relatable.  Naoto's voice of reason
and lack of social skills helps to put a hint of reality on the team's antics,
providing a different sense of comic relief, but one that provides just as
much entertainment.

--------
Teddie:
--------

A being from a different world, he runs into the Protagonist, Yosuke and Chie
early on.  He notes a disturbance in his world potentially related to the
murders going on in Inaba, and forms a reluctant alliance with the team in
order to bring peace to his world.  However, as time passes, he bonds with the
team and with their help, attempts to find out who he truly is and what sort
of being he could be, as he has no recollection at all whatsoever.

My Opinion:

Teddie is probably my least favorite character in the entire series.  He can
get really annoying and does a lot of unlikeable stuff.  He's a bit like Yosuke
but a lot worse in all the aspects Yosuke is terrible in.  However, behind that
he carries a lot of confusion about not knowing what he truly is, and how
he knows nothing.  In the moments that he really doubts his identity I feel
are the parts that he seems more human than most of the people you meet.  His
lack of knowledge of the world may seem annoying, but in his defense, I would
probably have acted worse if I had seen the human world for the first time.  In
those moments, I excuse Teddie for being annoying.  He also provides some comic
relief, and even has successful ventures now and then (ie. hanging out with the
girls and successful "wardrobe malfunctions") which make him more successful
than Yosuke.  Not much better, but I do give Teddie credit for that.

************************
Personality Statistics:
************************

An important part of Persona 4 Golden is the balance of TV exploring and real
life.  Apart from training your characters in the TV world, you will also be
training your main character in real life.

Unlike Persona 3, there are 5 aspects to train:

1. Knowledge
2. Courage
3. Diligence
4. Expression
5. Understanding

These statistics aren't just for show.  They affect what options you can
select during conversations, which Social Links you can start, as well
as how many points you can get in Social Links.  There are many applications
for each statistic, and they will each make themselves apparent in time.
They each have 5 levels, and take different amounts of training to increase
to the next level.  They all have different methods of training as well, and
you'd be surprised to see what you can find.

Here is a list of all the statistics to level, as the different levels, and
the amount of training you will need to do to get the statistic to the next
level.  I also list some of the ways you can train the statistics.

********
Combat:
********

Perhaps one of the most important aspects of this game, the other being 
Social Links. As Igor will tell you, your bonds are important as they are 
your power, but this power has absolutely no use if you are terrible in a 
fight.  You could have the best equipment, fully maxed Social Links, and still 
lose a simple fight.  This is how the game is.

Thankfully combat in this game isn't too hard.  When you explore a dungeon in
the TV world, you will run into enemies called Shadows (aptly named by Teddie)
that will attempt to halt your efforts and kill you.  You will have to defeat
all the Shadows to win the battle.  Sounds easy enough.

When fighting enemies, you get to hit them with several different kinds of
attacks.  They will either be your normal attack or Skills that you choose
to use.  The types are:

Physical
Fire
Ice
Electric
Wind
Light
Darkness
Almighty

Physical, Fire, Ice, Electric, Wind and Almighty all deal damage.  Light and
Darkness are instant-kill types that will either kill an enemy or do nothing.

You will see all elements but Almighty when you Analyze an enemy.  This is
what each of the signs mean.

	- Nothing: Means the attack will deal normal damage.  When you use
		   this attack on an enemy, damage is dealt.

	- Weak: Means the attack will deal more damage.  When you use this
		attack on the enemy, it will say "Weak" and they will be
		knocked down.

	- Str: Means the attack will deal reduced damage.  When you use this
	       attack on the enemy, it will say "Resist"

	- Null: Means the attack will deal no damage.  When you use this
		attack on the enemy, it will say "Block"

	- Rpl: Means the attack will be reflected back at you.  When you use
	       use this attack on the enemy, a white square will appear and
	       a reflective noise will be heard, followed by the damage the
	       attack would have dealt to you instead.

There is a reason to know these types, and that is because enemies come with
many strengths/weaknesses.  Matching the right attack to the right enemy
will result in gaining advantages in battle.  There are two advantages to
hitting an enemy's weakness.

First is the "One More" advantage.  This occurs when you hit an enemy's
weakness or inflict a critcal hit on an enemy.  This will knock down
an enemy and give you an additional turn.  You can get as many turns
as you can knock down enemies.  Unfortunately, you can't keep hitting
the enemy's weakness and keep them down, so no infinite turn strategy is
available.  However, by hitting an enemy that is down, you could give
them the Dizzy status ailment, which will make an enemy skip a turn.

Second is the All-Out Attack. This occurs when all enemies are knocked down.
All party members who are able to attack will unleash an Almighty attack on
the enemies.  This usually finishes all the enemies on screen (as indicated
by a skull shape that forms in the smoke), otherwise it deals a great amount
of damage.  There are times it will not deal much damage, but those do not
come very often, and can be worked around.

As you can see, fighting strategically comes with its own benefits, and it
does help a lot.

-----------------
Battle Commands:
-----------------

Your characters will have several options:

Analyze - This option lets you see some information about your enemies.
	  It's very handy for viewing the weaknesses and strengths of the
	  enemies you are currently fighting.  It will remain blank for a
	  long time, as the information is something that is recorded for
	  you.  You have to use trial-and-error to see what works best on
	  the enemy and what does not work.

Tactics - This option sets how you would like a specific teammate to act.
	  This option is only available for the main character, as your
	  other teammates cannot control your tactics.  You have a set of
	  options which will be discussed later.

  Guard - This option puts the selected teammate in a defensive position.
	  In this position they cannot attack, but take reduced damage.
	  Their weaknesses cannot be hit however, and have a reduced
	  chance of being hit by status ailments or instant-kill Skills.
	  You don't tend to evade attacks as much though, so there is a
	  trade off.

 Attack - This option has the selected teammate perform a physical attack.
	  The damage dealt is dependent on the character's Strength
	  statistic as well as the weapon they are wielding.  Sometimes
	  it can be affected by armor as well.

 Skills - This option lets you select a Skill that your Persona has
	  learned.  Without a doubt, this is where most of the action in
	  Persona 4 Golden takes place.  The cost of the Skill, as well
	  as the effects differ, so do see what your play style is and
	  which Persona fits the best.

Persona - This option lets you examine the information about the currently
	  equipped Persona (and for the main character, lets you change
	  Personas when needed).  Useful for looking at a Persona's
	  statistics and wondering which Skill would be your most
	  powerful attack, or seeing whether your Persona is a good match
	  against the enemies.  Also handy for switching Personas to
	  handle different situations.

  Items - This option lets you use an item that you have found or
	  purchased.  Each item has different uses and effects, and
	  some are more easily found than others.  Try and see what
	  works!

 Escape - This option lets you flee the fight.  This is best when you are
	  losing and/or in an unadvantegeous position.  Or when you just
	  can't be bothered to fight.  Do be aware that escape is not
	  instant; you will have to wait a few turns before you can leave
	  the fight.

---------
Tactics:
---------

For those familiar with Persona 3, you will remember these tactic options.
These can set a character on auto-pilot to do the tactic you have asked them
to do, or they can be directly controlled by you.  Here's what they do:

     Act Freely - As the name states, this tactic will have the character do
		  whatever they want in battle, based on their available
		  Skills and conditions.  You have no control over what they
		  choose to do.

   Full Assault - This tactic has the character focus on using offensive
		  Skills, whether it be physical or magical.  They won't have
		  much regard to their health, but they won't exceed their
		  limitations (ie. they won't use Skills they don't have the
		  HP/SP for).  Physical attacks are also used quite often.

    Conserve SP - This tactic has the character use the least amount of SP
		  possible.  This is best used when your characters need to
		  fight effectively and without SP.  In this state, most
		  Skills will be either Physical or physical attacks are
		  used.  SP is used only when necessary.

   Heal/Support - This tactic has the character focus on healing, ailment
		  removal, and status enhancing.  Pretty self-explanatory.

Direct Commands - Something that wasn't available in Persona 3 (except in
		  Persona 3 Portable it was), this gives you direct control
		  over the characters actions.

Personally, I dislike having characters on auto-pilot, so I always choose
Direct Commands.  But if you like having your characters being controlled
by the game, or are used to playing with a random element, choosing the other
tactics are not a bad idea.

Do keep in mind whenever you have a character join you, their tactics are
set to things other than Direct Commands, so do check before battle.

You can change tactics during your main character's turn or you can change
them out of battle by pressing the Square button.

Now we need to look at our character roster.  Keep in mind that you won't
get the full roster for a while, but you are still able to customize teams
after you've gotten a good feel for the game.

*While writing these, I did not consider the scooter rides you can take
with your characters.  This is important because they do give your team
important skills that can make up for the flaws.  I am aware of this and
still need to investigate this, so while this note is here, I am not done
searching*

------------
Protagonist
------------

+PROS:

	- Protagonist can take on any role you want him to

	- Can switch roles at any time by switching Personas

	- Can change strengths/weaknesses easily

	- Can hold a wide variety of Personas, allowing for many variations

	- Character statistics are dependent on the Persona

	- Can potentially outlevel the team with Social Links

	- Can change/upgrade Skills with Skill Cards

	- Can improve a Persona's statistics very quickly

-CONS:

	- Can only switch Personas once

	- If Protagonist dies, it's Game Over

	- Character statistics are dependent on the Persona

	- Needs to keep fusing in order to keep up with the rest of the team

The Protagonist's combat abilities are the same as his personality; it is very
choice dependent.  They are completely dependent on the Persona you equip and 
the equipment you give the Protagonist.  He can take on any role you want, be 
as effective or ineffective as you want him to be, and can fight just as you 
want him to.  Basically, his combat skills are dependent on you as a player.
His ability to customize Personas allows you to craft together incredibly
powerful Personas at any stage of the game.  Getting statistic cards and
Skill cards from battles may not seem like a lot at first, but the effects
are permanent, and early investments will pay off in the long run.

What isn't dependent are the rules the Protagonist plays by.  He can switch
Personas only once per turn, meaning a Persona selected by mistake will need
to last one turn before being switched again.  Your Protagonist's statistics
are dependent on the Persona equipped.  While this is cool, keep in mind that
it can also work against you if the Persona you equip has good Skills but low
Strength/Magic, as the power of those Skills is related to the statistics of
the Persona (meaning if you use a powerful Skill with a weak Persona, doesn't
matter that you have a powerful Persona with that same Skill, the damage will
be based off of the weak Persona).

You may also find that you will have to keep fusing Personas to get stronger
ones, as the ones you currently have will inevitably fall behind the rest of
the team in terms of Skills, levels, and statistics.  Very annoying sometimes.

Also if your Protagonist dies for whatever reason, the game ends there.  I
always found that really stupid because I could actually revive him every
time it happened, but the game insists on ending once the Protagonist is
defeated.  Why this is I don't understand.

You have the most versatile character in the game, but he's not perfect.  He
has his own set of advantages and disadvantages, but if you can strategize
well, play smart, and make sure you can switch Personas without messing up,
I think you will rarely face the disadvantages.  You can't switch him out
anyway, so learn to love him soon.

-----------------
Yosuke Hanamura:
-----------------

Signature Move: Youthful Wind

Heals the team and increases their hit/evasion (like Mediarama and Masukukja)

+PROS:

	- Has the team's Wind Skills (ie. Garu/Magaru)

	- Can boost the team's hit/evasion (with Sukukaja/Masukukaja) and
	  his own (Auto-Sukukaja)

	- Has decent access to healing Skills early and late game

	- Has good Strength and Magic statistics, and thus can take on both
	  physical and magical attacking roles well

	- Yosuke's statistics are relatively balanced

	- The fastest character in your team early-mid game and still remains
	  relatively fast late-game

	- Can learn Dekaja, which can even out a battle

	- Has good resistances to Wind and Fire

-CONS:

	- Doesn't specialize in physical or magical attacks, so limited to a
	  mixed fighter role

	- Doesn't have damage boosting Skills

	- Healing is very poor mid game

	- Weak to Electric

	- Agility loses out to other characters as game progresses

Yosuke is quite decent in combat.  He possesses the only hit/evasion skills on
your team, as well as specializing in both physical and magical attacks.  He
takes on the role of medic early on, and if you work with Yosuke, secondary
medic mid-late game.  He learns the only Wind Skills on your team, and has
powerful statistics to back both his physical and magical attacks, which are
fairly strong in his own right.  His signature move, Youthful Wind, is very
handy as a hit/evasion increase and a heal.

He is no longer resistant to Electric, but his resistances to Wind and Fire,
as well as natural affinity to evasion makes Yosuke possibly the hardest
character to hit in game.  Doesn't mean he won't get hit, but in all the games
I've seen, rarely is Yosuke in need of healing from damage.  Dekaja is also
great for opponents that tend to enhance their attack/defense/evasion while
Yosuke helps your team's evasion.  He helps make your battles a lot easier
by making sure your opponents don't get too overbearing, while you remain
enhanced.

The problem is his Strength and Magic are well balanced, and while that lends
to his versatility, he has no real way of differentiating the two.  What I mean
by that is, oftentimes you will not know what his strongest attack is, because
you have two options and sometimes that's still not enough.  He also can't
boost the damage of his attacks, leaving his offensive power somewhat weaker
than other characters (such as Chie/Kanji in physical attacks and Naoto in
magical attacks).

His healing also extends to just Diarama at best, and until Youthful Wind
comes along, it is quickly outclassed by Yukiko and Teddie, who can access
better healing spells.  Also, while Yosuke remains relatively fast, the game
has Yosuke take an offensive turn late in his Agility growth, focusing more on
his other statistics.  As such, characters like Chie and Naoto are able to be
faster characters, removing Yosuke's title as the team's fastest character, and
thus one of his only main selling points.

Despite his flaws, I personally have not experienced much of an issue with
Yosuke.  His work in hit/evasion increases as well as his balanced moveset can
give great flexibility, and given the enemies that vary in their resistances,
Yosuke is never without a way to hurt your enemies.  I wouldn't suggest Yosuke
for those who like to unleash powerful attacks at every turn, but if you are
the type of player who likes flexibility and advantages in combat, you can't go
wrong with Yosuke.

Chie Satonaka:
---------------

Signature Move: Dragon Hustle

Increases the team's attack, defense, and hit/evasion (like Heat Riser for
the team)

+PROS

	- The physical attack expert of the team

	- Has a very useful array of Physical attacks

	- Only member of team with a Physical Skill that hits all enemies

	- Has good Ice and Light resistances

	- Has access to Power Charge and Auto-Tarukaja

	- Only member of team that can increase critical hit rate

	- Very offensive by herself

	- Carries best status enhancing Skill in the game

	- Best follow-up attack in game

-CONS

	- Weak to Fire

	- Has terrible SP

	- Comes with Ice Skills, but those quickly become useless

	- Only good with Physical attacks

	- Doesn't work well in a team as well as others/no support skills

	- Not the strongest physical attacker in the team

For all things that involve physical contact with the enemy, Chie's your girl.
Those kicks of hers aren't weak, and she carries a great set of Skills to take
advantage of her attacks.  She remains fairly offensive throughout the game,
and does gain some status enhancing skills, but for the most part they are for
herself.  She packs some serious punches though, and with powerful Skills like
God's Hand and Agneystra, boosted with her Auto-Tarukaja and Power Charge, will
make quick work of any opponent.  She also starts with a decent line-up of Ice
Skills that make the beginning of the game a lot easier and gives your team an
elemental advantage.

Her resistance to Light means she won't be getting killed by instant-kill
Skills as often as the rest of the team.  Naturally having some Ice Skills, she
herself is resistant to Ice.  She's incredibly focused on physical offense and
can be one of the fastest characters in the game, just slightly faster than
Yosuke.

Unfortunately, Chie's not very good at working with teams.  With the exception
of her critical hit increases, her skillset isn't very oriented towards helping
the team, and more for her own benefit.  In fact, until Dragon Hustle comes
along, she works best by herself.  She doesn't offer the team any real benefits
other than beating down an enemy, which seems great, but in longer fights, not
having the status boosts that Yosuke/Kanji/Teddie/(and maybe Naoto) have, makes
Chie's lack of team attention quite the inconvenient annoyance.  And even when
Dragon Hustle comes along, Chie's SP is the worst out of the team, and thus
only allows for one use of Dragon Hustle before you have to restore her SP
again, and that can get very annoying while you're trying to put the beatdown
on enemies.  To be fair though, Dragon Hustle is good enough that you probably
only need it once per battle.

Chie's Ice Skills also reach a very big block early on, as her Physical Skills
develop more.  By the time Teddie joins your team, Chie's Ice Skills are no
longer needed, which can give players a big misinterpretation of what Chie is
really able to do in combat.  Teddie does a much better job at handling the Ice
element that Chie's Ice Skills soon become just wasted skill space.  She has no
other magical attacks, so her Magic statistic, while decent, is almost wasted.

Chie's damage can also be outclassed by Kanji, the best physical attacker on
the team.  I understand there was debate about this previously in Persona 4,
but now that Kanji has access to Power Charge as well, and seeing the damage
comparisons, I can reasonably conclude from my research that Chie is weaker
than Kanji.  With that being said, Chie can take out groups of enemies better
than Kanji, so there is that to consider as well.

However, Chie is still the best Physical specialist on your team, able to wipe
out indviduals or groups of enemies that don't nullify or repel Physical.  Her 
Skills let her match with others for quick beatdowns, and in battles where I 
need to deal a lot of damage, having Chie in my party increases my success rate
and battle speed dramatically.  For those players who favor offense over 
defense and a character who can hold her own, Chie is the perfect match.

--------------
Yukiko Amagi:
--------------

Signature Move: Burning Petals

Deals severe Fire damage to all enemies (think Ragnarok that hits all enemies)

+PROS

	- Has good resistances to Fire and Electric

	- Best Magic statistic in the team

	- Best healer in the team

	- Powerful magical attacker

	- Has the most SP in the team

	- Is your team's source of Fire Skills

	- Learns the more powerful Magic Skills earlier than others

-CONS

	- Weak to Ice

	- Has no other support other than healing

	- Worst physical attacker

	- Has very low health


Yukiko's specialty lies in Magic, in a direct contrast to Chie.  Her Magic
statistic is the highest out of your entire team, and this leads to high power
Fire Skills at almost every stage of the game.  In fact, Yukiko typically leads
the team in advanced Skills, not including the main character.  For example,
she learns to use Agilao (mid level Fire Skill) while Yosuke is stuck with
Garu (low level Wind Skill) for a much longer period before learning Garula,
the Wind equivalent of Agilao.  She also learns Salvation, perhaps the best
healing Skill in the entire game, followed by Samarecarm, which she is able to
learn.  Even before those late-game Skills, Yukiko's usage of Mediarama and
Amrita can take your team very far without upgrading.  To top it all off,
Yukiko's massive SP makes it easy for her to fire off (pun not intended) her
Skills without much worry of running out.  You will find that if you fight
strategically and effectively, Yukiko almost never runs out of SP and can last
from the dungeon entrance to the boss fight with more than enough SP.

Her resistances to Fire and Electric are not terribly useful, but thankfully
those elements come up quite a bit and Yukiko isn't fragile enough that she
can't take an attack or two.

Despite that, Yukiko is not without her drawbacks.  For one, her physical
damage is terrible.  This is to be expected of course, as she has such a high
focus on magical attacks.  However, in situations without SP, Yukiko's not
very helpful, and in fact might bring you down if you're not able to restore
her SP.  Her physical attacks aren't downright terrible, but if you find that
you're relying on her physical attacks in anything but a Rush Attack, you may
find your team's potential has been lowered drastically.

Her Ice weaknesses also comes up quite a bit throughout the game, and for some
odd reason or another, is always picked on (or at least, whenever I have used
Yukiko).  Of course, most of your team has a weakness, so saying Yukiko's
weakness is the worst is not fair to her, but Ice comes up enough and is used
often enough that it may get inconvenient for Yukiko fans.

She's also very prone to beatdowns because her health is not as high.  This
might not seem like a fair judgement (because every character can be beat down)
but Yukiko has the lowest health out of the team, and if you don't take care
of her, she will go down to some powerful attacks quite easily and quite
quickly.  She also has no support abilities other than healing, which means she
has no other way to avoid death than to stall the opponents until the fight is
over.

Personally I've always been a great fan of Yukiko.  Not just in looks, but her
Magic statistic makes all her Skills hurt, and even healing becomes a lot
easier once she joins the team.  Her ability to heal status effects with
Amrita/Salvation so early on is almost a miracle sometimes, especially early
and late game where you may not be as prepared for status ailments as you may
think.  If you need some magical firepower and/or are constantly getting hurt,
Yukiko is the way to go.

---------------
Rise Kujikawa:
---------------

Signature Move: Full Analysis

Gives you all the information about an enemy that you could possibly get
(ie. strengths/weakness and movesets, even if you haven't discovered them)

+PROS

	- Provides better support than what you started with

	- Can participate in battles

	- Full Analysis is downright amazing

	- Fixes the one drawback of your Protagonist dying

	- Gains better support as you work on her Social Link


-CONS

	- Doesn't fight with you

	- Her statistics are totally irrelevant

	- You can't dress her in costumes

	- The trophy related to her comments is so hard to get

Rise in Persona 4 Golden is predominantly the reason she is my favorite
character.  Her support abilities have improved tremendously since Persona 4.
Granted, she provides weaker support than she did in Persona 4 at first, but
as you work on her Social Link, her benefits quickly come to light.

She can increase the damage of your All-Out Attacks, tell you when your Persona
or team member can hit an enemy's weaknesses, actually prevent attacks from
hitting your entire team, healing/restoring SP/curing ailments/enhancing your
team with no cost to you at all, and the best part is reviving your main
character when he has fallen once.  She provides much more benefits to a battle
than she did previously, which makes the game a lot easier and is a useful
pick-me-up when things go awfully wrong.

Also, her Full Analysis Skill gives you all the information you need about an
enemy, eliminating the random guessing factor that can prove perilous in the
final dungeons.

Rise still never fights with you, so her Persona having statistics never really
helps.  In fact, she possesses the weakest Persona before she gains her
signature move.  She also can't be dressed in costumes despite the addition of
costumes, and she has a trophy related to her that is difficult to get.  Really
difficult.

There's not much to say about Rise.  You can't really choose to not have her
on your team; she's the support you apparently need.  However, she does a very
good job doing so and makes the game a lot easier if you were struggling.  For
all things related to battles, Rise's got you covered.  Sometimes.

---------------
Kanji Tatsumi:
---------------

Signature Move: The Man's Way

Can inflict Dizzy and Knockdown on all enemies

+PROS

	- Has good resistances to Physical and Electric

	- Has the highest Strength in your team

	- Has the highest HP in your team

	- Really good at eliminating single targets

	- Has access to Tarukaja/Matarukaja

	- Is your team's source of Electric Skills

-CONS

	- Worst SP in the team

	- Weak to Wind

	- Terrible at magical attacks

	- Not good with multiple targets

As you might expect when Kanji joins your team, he's all about might.  He
possesses the best statistics for a physical fighter, and he's got the HP to
keep paying for the Skills that cost a lot of HP.  His health lets him take
several hits and still be able to take more hits than most of your team.  Ever
since Kanji was able to learn Power Charge, his attacks hit much harder than
Chie's, and are enough to put a dent in almost any boss's health.  His Electric
Skills make sure you never have to worry about zapping an enemy, and to make
himself stronger, he can use Tarukaja/Matarukaja to boost his attack power even
further.  I've never seen a more damaging attack than a Power Charged Primal
Force with a Tarukaja boost from Kanji.

His resistances to Electric and Physical are strange.  Electric was expected,
but I never did get Physical, since most of your enemies rarely resort to
hitting you outright sometimes.  Perhaps I've never run into physical beatdowns
before, but Kanji is durable enough that if any enemy even tried that, the
fight is already won.

Kanji's biggest problems are pretty much the inverse of Yukiko's problems.  His
Magic statistic is downright terrible, even with his Elec Amp Skill, which
leaves Electric Skills on your team as a backup option more than a useful
weapon.  And even if you can improve the Electric damage (which is possible
thankfully), Kanji's SP is even worse than Yukiko's HP.  And unfortunately,
Kanji's effectiveness relies a bit on his SP.  There's no point in saying Kanji
is more powerful than Chie when Kanji's out of SP, because at least Chie has
a decent supply of SP.  Yes, Dragon Hustle can only be used once, but it's so
good that it probably only needs to be used once per battle.  Kanji's SP is low
enough that you may have to devote some battle time into restoring his SP.

Kanji's physical prowess only extends to single targets.  This is great for
boss fights, but against a group of enemies, Kanji struggles a bit to take down
a group really fast.  This is where Chie really shines, as in the beginning,
Kanji needs a bit of help to be truly effective.  And even then, Chie takes out
more groups than Kanji ever will.

Despite the arguments I've seen about either Chie or Kanji being the strongest,
I truly believe it doesn't matter because they serve different purposes in a
fight.  Kanji will make short work of enemies with his physical prowess, even
busting down enemies that are resistant to Physical as if they weren't
resistant.  His Electric Skills may not be strong, but it leaves Kanji with a
backup weapon in case smacking an enemy down isn't working.  If you need to
zap some enemies for an All-Out Attack or wiping out tough enemies quickly,
Kanji triumphs over all.

-----------------
Naoto Shirogane:
-----------------

Signature Move: Shield of Justice

Protects each team member from any attack, but only once
(Can be casted again to re-apply protection)

+PROS

	- Has good resistances to Fire, Light and Darkness

	- Is your team's source of Light and Darkness Skills

	- Has access to Almighty attacks

	- Comes with Fire and Wind Skills

	- Decent physical attacker

	- Has no weaknesses

	- One of the fastest characters along with Chie and Yosuke

	- Has access to Tetrakarn and Makarakarn

	- Shield of Justice is incredible protection

-CONS

	- Is too reliant on instant-kill Skills

	- Elemental Skills are outclassed by Yosuke and Yukiko

	- Relies on not taking damage

	- Doesn't really excel in fighting compared to other characters


Naoto is either one of the best teammates and a team staple or someone you're
never going to put on your team.  I'm not saying this because I dislike Naoto
(I like Naoto a lot!) but the spot she takes on your team is really based on
whether she fills a need or not.

First off, Naoto has no weaknesses, which means she will only fall down to a
critcal attack.  Her resistance to Fire is good, but not as impressive as her
resistances to Light and Darkness, meaning Naoto isn't going to get killed by
instant kills very easily.  

Naoto's skill with Light and Darkness is unmatched on your team.  She will
either plow through enemies with instant kills and/or get them the next time.
And if that doesn't work, a Mind Charged Megido attack never fails to inflict
damage.  Naoto's skill is good enough that she can pick off remaining enemies
that manage to survive those two onslaughts.

Naoto's support is all based on not taking damage.  Whether it is Tetrakarn
for Physical or Makarakarn for elemental Skills, Naoto can protect a team
member from deadly attacks with barriers.  Her signature move, Shield of
Justice, is also the best protection Skill in the game, preventing ANY
attack that would hurt your team.

She also comes with a very varied skillset, able to use Fire and Wind when you 
get her, as well as some Physical attacks.  And if things are getting too bad
for the team, Shield of Justice buys you time that I always find to be nothing
short of miraculous.  She's very well balanced, and on first sight nothing 
seems wrong.

But that in itself is also her worst aspect.  Her skillset seems to be
all-encompassing and useful, but you quickly learn that most of her moveset
has no real place in the team.  Physical attacks are best left to Kanji and
Chie, her Wind and Fire Skills are outclassed by Yosuke and Yukiko, leaving
only her Almighty, Light and Darkness Skills as her specialty.  Her statistics
are also nicely balanced, but do not give her an edge.  Unlike Yosuke however,
Naoto isn't able to specialize in either physical or magical attacks because
she is outclassed in those aspects.  To put it simply, if an opponent is
immune to Light/Darkness/Light and Darkness, Naoto's effectiveness is quite
low.  Mind Charge + Megidola/Megidolaon is great, but not as powerful as you
might expect later on.

As her support skills revolve around avoiding damage, it goes to show that
Naoto is banking her effectiveness on instantly killing an enemy.  If that 
fails, then there's not much else Naoto really can do other than deal out some 
weak damage.  Like Chie, she's a bit of an individual player at times.  Unlike
Chie however, Naoto's biggest drawback is not her lack of Skills, but rather
needing to avoid getting hurt to bring out her potential.  Naoto isn't much
tougher than Yukiko, and her barriers cost far more SP than Yukiko's healing.

Naoto is by no means weak or insignificant, despite my analysis pointing out
her weak points.  There's no better Light or Darkness user on your team, and
Naoto's Almighty attacks will help you get past resistances easily.  She's not
a terrific damage dealer and her skillset shows that.  However, she gets the
job done and is just as effective than Yukiko if used strategically and
correctly.  For those in dire need of instant-kill and Almighty Skills, while
giving adequate damage protection for your teammates, Naoto never fails to 
disappoint.

--------
Teddie:
--------

Signature Move: Kamui Miracle

Does something random (effects differ)

+PROS

	- Has good resistances to Ice, Wind and Darkness

	- Has a LOT of healing/support

	- Is able to cast Rakukaja/Marakukaja

	- Replaces Chie as the source of Ice Skills

	- Has some pretty decent Physical Skills

	- Has the potential to take on multiple roles in battle

-CONS

	- Weak to Electric

	- Tries to be everything at once

	- Kamui Miracle is probably the worst signature move ever

	- Extremely poor support before Rise comes


Despite my dislike of Teddie, he's actually a really good character to have on
your team.  By the time you gain Teddie as a character, his Ice Skills will
outclass Chie's, making him the resident Ice user of the team.  He also comes
with healing Skills and support Skills, being the only team member to have
Rakukaja/Marakukaja and sharing Matarukaja with other team members.  His
Physical Skills aren't bad either, and provide a very good mix of offensive
strategies.

The best part is Teddie has the statistics to back up his skillset.  He can be
a great magic user, a decent physical attacker, a great medic, and great
support.  He's basically like an all-encompassing tool, which is true because
he really can take on all those roles with some level of effectiveness.

Teddie's resistances are also very noteworthy, as he resists Ice, Wind and
Darkness, elements that tend to come up very frequently.  This means Teddie is
not likely to go down often in regular fights, as long as you don't actually
put him in danger on purpose.

However Teddie has some strange weakness to Electricity that I have no idea
about.  It just never made sense to me.  And Electric attacks are more common
than you would think.

Teddie's Skills and statistics may be well-balanced, but unfortunately his
skillset tries to make him do everything at once.  He won't be as good as
Chie/Kanji in physical attacks, not as good as Yukiko in magic or healing,
and his support reaches a conflict when you decide whether you need Matarukaja
or Marakukaja, or both.  He won't be able to balance his roles like Yosuke can,
and unlike Naoto, there's nothing Teddie really has that makes him really
special other than his Ice Skills.

Teddie's role on a team is to fill up a role that isn't already filled.  Got
too many magic users?  Teddie makes a great physical attacker.  Don't want
Yukiko to heal?  Teddie's healing can do the job.  Need to use Ice?  Teddie
has your back.  Need support?  Teddie can pair up with Yosuke to keep your team
fully covered.  Just try not to make Teddie do 4 things at once, and you should
find that Teddie is just as capable a combatant as the rest of your team.

-------------------
Team Combinations:
-------------------

These are special All-Out Attacks that are performed after an All-Out Attack
by the team.  There are only 3 in the game, and they require certain
team members to be in the party.  There must also be enemies left after the
All-Out Attack (this is sort of obvious as there can't be a follow-up attack
if the battle is over).  The required members must also be alive, and it does
not always occur after an All-Out Attack.  They are as follows:

Yukiko and Chie: Twin Dragons

A spectacularly dazzling scene where Chie and Yukiko both summon a dragon and
flower petals to inflict damage on the enemies.

Kanji and Naoto: Beauty and the Beast

Aptly named, despite the strange name.  It is a dark attack that summons
netherworld objects to inflict damage on the enemies.

Yosuke and Teddie: Junes Bomber

A particularly funny attack where Yosuke and Teddie drop an assortment of
ninja tools and a giant-sized Teddie bomb respectively.

All they really do is more damage, and they sometimes occur in boss fights.
While cool, they aren't necessary, and sometimes you might find yourself
forcing party members into your team just to make it work.

---------------
Scooter Rides:
---------------

By going with a character on a scooter ride, you can potentially give a
character new Skills or help them re-learn Skills that you may have
unlearned.  You need to keep visiting to gain access to the other Skills
the character can learn (ie. Yosuke can't learn Megido unless you have
had him learn Panic Boost first).  The exception is Rise, as with every
visit you will increase the strength of your All-Out Attacks.

There are only 5 Skills you can learn, and in Rise's case, only 5
All-Out Attack boosts.  After that, subsequent visits will do nothing,
except for relearning forgotten Skills.

I personally never found them to be very useful, and even Rise's boost
isn't as handy or useful to get through the game.  They also waste a
great amount of time which could be better spent on Social Links and
personality increases, so these scooter rides are better left for those
who really don't care for Social Links and want to experiment with the
team's combat potential.

Immediate TV Busting:
----------------------

I talk about Immediate TV Busting in the beginning of the Walkthrough and
wrote the walkthrough as if I had beaten the dungeon in a day.  The reason I
encourage Immediate TV Busting is because:

1.  It's possible.  If you can clear a dungeon in a day, I would do it.  There
    is plenty of time to train later.

2.  You can work on your team's Social Links a lot easier.  Otherwise some days
    they will ask to go for a rescue rather than hang out with you.  They will
    still hang out with you occasionally, but not as often, so it's harder to
    work on those Social Links.

3.  It saves time.  Instead of arranging to spend 4-5 days on a dungeon, you
    could save the person in 1 day and use the other 3-4 days to do other
    tasks.  Time is precious in this game, and you could always be doing
    something else.

4.  It does your training for you.  Don't want to make time to go back into
    the dungeons?  The fighting that you'll do is good training.  However,
    there are other reasons to go back into a dungeon other than training.

You may wonder how this is possible.  This game has made it a lot easier with
2 new additions: Golden Hands and Chalice Cards.

Golden Hands grant you a huge amount of EXP, so much in fact that killing one
almost always means a level-up for a team member, and maybe more than 1 level
per Hand.  They also drop a lot of money, so there are benefits all around.

The problem?  They are hard to defeat, they run from battles often, and they
are rare enemies.

They take significantly less damage than most enemies, have no weaknesses, and
flee at inopportune times.  So how do you kill them?

First, whenever you find one, (it's pretty obvious; it's a walking gold hand
that actively runs away from you), always try get a Player Advantage.  This
gives you more time.  And it's easier than you think, because it has its back
facing you as it runs from you.  Don't be afraid to swing if you think you have
it, as you move faster than the Hand and thus get multiple tries.

Second, during combat, you need to maximize your damage and/or kill it quickly.
Here are some methods:

1. Elemental items.  If you're dealing way below 50 damage, items like Dry Ice
   and Firecracker may get you an advantage.  They deal definite amounts, so
   even a resistance won't change their damage.  Just make sure if you're using
   them that the Hand doesn't absorb the element in question, or you're making
   things harder for yourself.

2. Hope for a critical hit.  An All-Out Attack pretty much kills them early
   on, and it will happen at least once.  You have nothing to lose, and
   physical attacks are pretty much the only consistent way to damage these
   Golden Hands, so it's not as silly as you might think.

3. Use Almighty Skills.  Megido/Megidola/Megidolaon are your best friends when
   fighting Golden Hands, as they take a lot of damage from these Skills.  If
   you happen to have Mind Charge, those Hands are as good as yours.

More methods will be posted as I discover them.

By utilizing these Golden Hands, I typically outlevel my opponents and the boss
significantly, often being 10 levels higher than the standard level for the
dungeon.  I usually reach Level 99 for my team at around Heaven or Magatsu
Inaba, and even at Heaven I finish at the mid-late 90's.  It really does work
and is really effective.

You can use the money earned to buy Personas and Skill Cards for fusion.  The
Golden Hands give a lot of money if you fight them at the highest stage of the
game as possible, which gives you a lot of freeway into fusing extra strong
Personas and having money for fusion experiments.

You may wonder how you can get through without running out of SP.  This is
usually the reason why people can't do Immediate TV Busting; SP is harder to
recover than HP.  This is where the Arcana Chance at the end of battle comes
into play.  You have a lot of options to choose from.  If possible though,
keep picking Chalice Cards,  The boost to SP may be slight but it does build
up, and eventually give you enough SP to beat the boss.

As you may notice however, these cards don't come as often, or usually you are
torn between Chalice Cards and EXP/Money/Stat Increases/Personas.  No worries,
the game now allows for Sweep Bonuses, which not only let you pick 3 cards
instead of 1, but ALWAYS trigger an Arcana Chance after a battle.

How do you get a Sweep Bonus?  You have to find a configuration that lets you
pick all the Arcana Chance cards.  This means picking cards that let you pick
one, two, three or even four more cards.

Yes, Half EXP/No EXP/Half Money/No Money cards are terrible to get.  I hate
picking those as well.  But do keep in mind that you can easily make up those
losses from Golden Hands, who provide much more EXP and money from 1 fight than
you will get from fighting an entire dungeon floor.  Sweep Bonuses also trigger
the chances of being able to have Chalice Cards to pick, and you can always
start building your SP back up.  In the event of a lost Sweep Bonus, don't
worry, you can always wait for an Arcana Chance and build up again.  It's not
as rare as you may think it is.

Playing conservatively with your SP helps a lot as well.  I have enemy listings
with all the enemy strengths and weaknesses for each dungeon.  If you don't
have an element to take down an enemy, use physical attacks.  If the enemy is
pathetically weak, don't waste SP, use physical attacks.  Skills should only
be used if you're facing strong enemies and need to use All-Out Attacks to help
you win (and there's nothing wrong with that).

Also, using your items is great too.  Yes, there's always the "I need to save
them for when I really need them" argument, and it's very valid in this game.
However, at the end of the game you'll find a lot of those items sitting in your
inventory without being used.  Never be afraid to use your items.

This way you should be able to save your SP, get powerful Personas, have strong
teammates to fight with, and easier boss fights.

This is very hard to do in the beginning, but after the first TV dungeon it
should be very doable.  It's still manageable the first time you try it, but it
requires a bit of item usage and prior knowledge.

It IS possible to do Immediate TV Busting on harder difficulties (I have
managed to do it on Very Hard, so it will be possible).  However, on harder
difficulties, Golden Hands won't give as much EXP/money, and you will end up
having to stay in the dungeons a lot longer than you expect.  I suggest
waiting on easier floors to get SP restoring items and then training at higher
levels to speed up the process.

I don't really recommend this for new players though.  It sounds cool, it saves
a lot of time, and it copies the anime in the "one day rescue" format, but it is
better to experience the game by yourself at your own pace before attempting any
crazy stuff.  I also don't recommend this for new players because the first
dungeon is really, really hard to do Immediate TV Busting in without spending a
lot of play time there.

*************
Walkthrough:
*************

This Walkthrough will assume a player uses Immediate TV Busting (clearing a
dungeon in a day) so the dungeon guides will be on the first day the dungeon
is available.  It does not mean you have to clear it on the first day, and if
you ever need to refer to it, you can always scroll back to the respective
dungeon guide.

I will refer to the main character as Yu Narukami (Narukami Yu) during
battles.  I used the team [Yu, Yosuke, Yukiko, Kanji] as my mainstay
and favorite team, but I also use [Yu, Chie, Yukiko, Kanji] throughout the
guide because I like the damage output.

I list Personas used, but do keep in mind that they are suggestions, not
Personas you definitely need.  I used them because I had access to them,
but the Personas you want to use, and ultimately the Skills you want to
use are up to you.  I just use a few to show you that it is possible to
beat the bosses with any sort of Persona, but it can be easier with the
right Skills and the right Personas.

=========
Prologue
=========

*CUTSCENE*

Here you are introducted to Igor and Margaret.

He is always a male, and sadly not a female, so no changing, unlike P3P.

You also decide your name here.  It is last name, then first name.

So something like this:

Last Name
First Name

On the input screen.

Sit back and watch the rest as it unfolds.

*CUTSCENE*

==========================
April 11th (04/11) Monday
==========================

------------------
Yasoinaba Station
------------------

Here you meet Ryotaro Dojima (your uncle) and Nanako Dojima (younger cousin).

I'll refer to Ryotaro as "Dojima" and Nanako as "Nanako" to make things easier
and so that you can tell the difference while reading.

You can pick whatever option you like here, as it doesn't really influence 
the story right now.

You will also run into a girl, something you didn't see in the original.
You can pick whatever option you want as well.

Once you're at the gas station, the story will play out and then you'll be 
given the chance to explore the shopping district.  

-----------------------------------
Central Shopping District (South)
-----------------------------------

You can talk and walk around, but there's not much you can do, even with the 
girl that you just met.  When you're ready to head back, run to Dojima and 
tell him you want to go back.

A little help box comes up telling you that you can skip scenes with the
START button, and can check the chat logs with the SELECT button.  I can't
tell you how handy that will be, especially when you've played through the
game more than once.

-----------------
Dojima Residence
-----------------

All you can do is go up to your room and sleep today.

You can also save at the calendar.

-----------------
???
-----------------

You will then gain control of your character.

This is the point in time where you get used to moving your character around
and adjusting the camera.  You may need to change the settings in the
System Menu first.

Once you're comfortable, continue along the path.  It's pretty linear
and there's only one path, so you shouldn't have trouble walking through it.

Pass through the door.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
BOSS FIGHT: ???

Well, I say this, but you can't really win.

Nor can you lose.

Just pick any option you want, and keep going until the battle finishes.
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

=========================
April 12 (04/12) Tuesday
=========================

-----------------
Dojima Residence
-----------------

You awaken to more talking with Nanako.  Just keep picking options.

Then there's a boy who crashes his bike and then gets hurt in a really painful
area.  I'd feel sorry for him and help, but your character is quite heartless
and just passes him by.  I would never do that, but hey, this supposedly
happens a lot in the story.

Here you are shown your school at Yasogami High.

--------------
Yasogami High
--------------

When Mr. Morooka introduces you, select "...You calling me a loser?" to get
some extra Courage points.  Handy for being such a boss, too bad you can't do
that in real life.

You are introduced to Chie Satonaka and Yukiko Amagi.  You also see Yukiko get
hit on by some random boy, who acts and is absolutely disgusting.

Then you get to pick if you think Yukiko is attractive.  Despite that, nothing
significant happens per option you pick.

You then run across a murder scene.  *GASPS*

Well, even when Dojima comes and suspects you of snooping around, no option
really hurts or helps you.

After that conversation, you get taken to the location select screen.  You can
go to any of the places listed, but you can't really do anything but go home,
so select the Dojima Residence.

-----------------
Dojima Residence
-----------------

When going home, you will get a notice saying that it will be "Evening" when
you go home.  This is important to note so that you don't assume you can 
go home whenever.  It will skip a day without any activity, and in this
game, every day will count, especially in the beginning.

Keep picking options as usual.

Save if you want and then go upstairs.

=============================
April 13th (04/13) Wednesday
=============================

Today you help out the student with the bike crash.  His name is Yosuke
Hanamura.  Now you're the nice person.  Strange.  Oh well.  Keep picking
options.

--------------
Yasogami High
--------------

You will automatically get a Knowledge increase today during lecture.

------
Junes
------

Keep picking options with Yosuke and Chie.  When you are introduced to Saki
Konishi, no options matter, so keep picking.

Here you discover Yosuke's position as the son of the Junes manager in Inaba,
as well as Chie's rumor of the Midnight Channel.

Keep picking options with Nanako.  This family is weird sometimes.

Save if you want, and then your character will want to try out the Midnight
Channel.  Weird, but hey, no losses.

A movie scene will play.  You can skip with the START button, but it never
hurts to watch it because it's actually pretty interesting.

*CUTSCENE*

You try to enter the TV but you fail and hurt yourself.  Figures.

After your TV escapades, pick options with Nanako.

============================
April 14th (04/14) Thursday
============================

Today you encounter a new addition in Persona 4 Golden: Umbrella Encounters.

Today is with Chie.  Fortunately or unfortunately nothing major happens in the
conversation, so you can just pick whatever option you want.

--------------
Yasogami High
--------------

You also have to answer a question in class.  This is the first of many that
will allow you to increase your Knowledge.  To get that boost, answer "1 BC".

You will then go to Junes after Chie's suggestion to look at TV models.  Your
character will repeat the TV entrance in the cutscene, only this time dragging
Yosuke and Chie in with him.

*CUTSCENE*

---------
Junes TV
---------

Chie looks really good in this cutscene.  I never thought she looked great in
the normal gameplay sequences, but anime wise she's quite pretty.  Nice.

Anyways, after the scene, you get to pick option.  You can pick whatever you
want, but for an Understanding bonus, pick "Are you guys okay?"

There are also a lot of wet pants jokes here.  This game's humor is actually
pretty good for some short laughs.  It's a mix of laugh-out-loud stuff and some
normal short laughs, but the humor can be kind of ridiculous at times if you
are one of the more serious gamers.

More options, but you can keep picking through them with no worries.

You enter a room with some strange and disturbing pictures (at least in the
view of the characters).  More bathroom jokes, and then you return 
to the stage.

You meet a Mysterious Bear at the stage who tells you more about the place you
landed in.  He gets kind of strange at times, but he gets you the way out.

Once back in Junes, you note the images you saw in the room are the same as
the ones in Junes, only the pictures in Junes are normal.

Once back at the Dojima Residence, Dojima will ask you a question, but all
the responses are the same.

Save if you want and then go to bed.

==========================
April 15th (04/15) Friday
==========================

*CUTSCENE*

That was particulary unnerving.

--------------
Yasogami High
--------------

When you get to school, there is a school assembly noting Saki Konishi is dead.
Ouch.

Yosuke is now super determined to find out what happened to Saki, and while
you are filled with choices, no option really matters, so pick what you want.

You then get the option to save.  You may want to if you haven't done so at
this point, if you have been watching everything without skipping a single
moment or fast-forwarding with the START button, you have clocked in about an
hour and a half of game time.  If you are one of those "I need to have a full
experience with no skipping" gamers, you do not want to lose all that progress.

At Junes, you meet up with Yosuke.  When he asks you if you want to walk away,
mention "I'm worried about Chie." to get an Understanding bonus.

This time Yosuke has a plan.  Chie with the lifeline, and your character with
a golf club.  And Yosuke with nothing.  Sounds like a plan.  That doesn't
involve Yosuke.  At least he gives you 3 Medicines and a Golf Club
which isn't totally bad, but it looks like he has no intention of fighting,
because call me a critic, but he didn't arm himself and he expected you to
do the fighting.

After the entrance into the TV, just watch Chie ruin the point of a lifeline.

---------
Junes TV
---------

Inside the TV, you meet up with the Mysterious Bear again.  Keep picking
options, nothing important here.

The Bear hands you glasses that clear up the fog.  From now on all your party
members will have glasses, so you know who is in your team.

You also learn his name is Teddie at this point.

When you get the option to test Teddie, while no option really matters, I
must note that this is a particularly funny moment, no matter what option
you pick.

Yosuke complains, but let's keep in mind he's the one who went in with no
intention of fighting, and unlike Teddie, has no use in the world (at least
Teddie is their way out).

--------------------------
Twisted Shopping District
--------------------------

Now you will approach the Twisted Shopping District for some story plot
discussion and an encounter with an enemy.

*CUTSCENE*

This is not as bad, not including the fact I think Izanagi is one of the cooler
looking Personas.  And the summoning animation is pretty cool.

This is your first battle so Teddie will walk you through it.  The "Help"
section discusses the strengths/weaknesses of Persona 4 Golden as well as the
ever-handy "1 MORE" mechanic that nets you extra turns.

Use the L button to look up enemy strengths/weaknesses you have discovered, it
is a very handy tactic.  But it is mostly hit-and-miss for a while.

Except that you have my guide and some other handy FAQs.

The Slipping Hableries you fight are weak to Lightning.  Fortunately, Izanagi
has the Zio skill which, as you can tell by the symbol, is Lightning, so zap
those enemies and move on.  It's a really easy fight.

Teddie will now address your character as "Sensei".  This is helpful because
now you don't need to tell him your name. Or have the game mess up.

Inside the liquor store, you meet a darker side of Yosuke who claims to be him.
Yosuke denies this, and he gets you into a boss fight as a result.

*CUTSCENE*

The sad part is, Shadow Yosuke is right; Yosuke entered the TV without
wanting to fight, as evidenced by placing the burden on you and Teddie.  Of
course something bad was going to happen to Yosuke.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
BOSS FIGHT: Shadow Yosuke

You start off with getting hit by Izanagi's weakness of Wind.  Ouch.

But this lets you get introduced to the Guard mechanic, which is also super
helpful and should always be kept in mind.

Also something to note is that you retain the same HP and SP from the last
fight.  So if you somehow struggled with that, you should probably heal up with
Medicines.  If you are somehow low on SP, you may have gained Soul Drops from
the last fight which do heal some SP, so use those if necessary.

Shadow Yosuke is weak to Lightning, so you can zap him with Zio and get a free
turn.  However, hitting an enemy with its weakness repeatedly, while causing
potentially more damage, will not net you another free turn (which means you
can't gain infinite turns).  In this case I highly recommend using the physical
skill you have, which is Cleave, because it deals more damage than your normal
attack and saves you some SP for Zio, and is also stronger than Zio.  But be 
warned it will use your health in order to be used, so if you are weak, don't 
use it.

I recommend a tactic of Zio and Cleave every chance you get.  If you are weak,
substitute Cleave with a physical attack.

When Shadow Yosuke uses Power Charge, Guard yourself.  If it Guards, it will
use Wind of Oblivion which is not strong, but will still knock you off your
feet.  Shadow Yosuke never uses the Extra Turn though, even after an unlucky
critical hit, which I had the misfortune of experiencing once, so that is
actually a really big help in this fight.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

After you win, Yosuke gets his Persona, Jiraiya.  Nice.

Some more story plot follows, and then you get the ability to enter and exit
the TV at Junes to solve this new mystery.

Exiting the TV results in Chie screaming at you and Yosuke.  Understandable,
considering Yosuke went in without ever wanting to fight and that you were
gone until evening.

---------------------
Samegawa Flood Plain
---------------------

On your way home, you see Yukiko in a kimono.  Keep picking options, no real 
effects here.

-----------------
Dojima Residence
-----------------

When you get home, keep picking options, but you can now check your status
more in-depth when you hit the Triangle button.  To access the old menu you
had before, it is now called "System", so you can change your settings there.

Save if you want, then sleep.

You are then approached by Igor, who takes you from your dream world.  You get
the key item "Velvet Key", which allows you unlimited access to the Velvet
Room as long as you can find it.  He also mentions bonds, but that won't make
sense just yet.

============================
April 16th (04/16) Saturday
============================

You meet up with Yosuke.  Keep picking options.

The point of this scene is to start the Magician Social Link with Yosuke.  This
is what Igor meant by bonds.  It's a story link, and thus is always activated.
Now Yosuke can help someone who is knocked down.  Handy.

--------------
Yasogami High
--------------

Chie comes in later saying Yukiko is missing.  You and Yosuke then tell Chie
about what might have happened, but it turns out to be a false alarm.

------
Junes
------

To be safe you go back to Junes to check with Teddie.  Keep picking options,
and you get Yosuke's phone number.

You get a story scene with Dojima and someone named Adachi discussing the case.
Nothing terribly important, but it does review what is currently known to the
public.

-----------------
Dojima Residence
-----------------

At home, save if you want and go to sleep.

When you watch the Midnight Channel, something happens.

*CUTSCENE*

Pretty Yukiko!  YAY!!!

Unfortunately it comes at the cost of knowing something has happened to her,
which is not as enjoyable.  When Yosuke calls, keep picking options, no 
right or wrong answer.

==========================
April 17th (04/17) Sunday
==========================

-----------------
Dojima Residence
-----------------

When you wake up, keep picking options.

Nanako is nice enough to let you leave the house without much concern.

------
Junes
------

When you meet with Yosuke, keep picking options.  Then watch as he pulls a
really bone-headed stunt.  Funny, but bone-headed.  You then get arrested.

---------------
Police Station
---------------

Thankfully, Dojima is your uncle and a police officer, or Yosuke would have
messed you over.  At the police station, you meet with Chie.  Keep picking
options, and then Chie takes you to a very important place.

--------
Daidara
--------

This is Daidara, your weapon/armor/accessory store and the place where you
can earn money selling materials and other items.  By talking to Daidara,
you will learn that you can sell materials you get from dungeon crawling.
You can also talk to him and he will request specific materials to make
new items.

Yosuke gives you 5000 Yen to spend at Daidara.  It may not seem like a lot
of money when you see the prices, but it is enough to upgrade your weapon,
get Yosuke a better weapon, and get some armor.  I personally wouldn't buy
Yosuke his weapon yet because you can get another weapon for him that is free,
and is much better.  But it is your choice.

You will then encounter a story scene of the Velvet Room appearing out of
nowhere.  This is where Igor tells you about the purpose of the room, as well
as introducing Marie, who is new to Persona 4 Golden.

You can then save at the Save Point in the Shopping District.  You can walk
around, but you can't leave for any other place but Junes.  There is the
Shiroku Store that is open, which lets you get some consumable items for use,
which helps your survivability if you are doing extremely poor.

------
Junes
------

Short meeting here, and then off to the TV.

---------
Junes TV
---------

After a rendevous with Teddie, he directs you to a new place, called Yukiko's
Castle.  Chie blindly runs in, leaving the three of you outside.

Before entering the castle, talk to Teddie for 3 Revival Beads, 5 Peach Seeds,
and 5 Soul Drops.  The Revival Beads revive a party member with 50% of their HP
back, Peach Seeds are like a weaker Medicine, but more common in the TV world,
and Soul Drops heal SP.  Quite a good haul from Teddie.

When you're ready, enter Yukiko's Castle.

----------------
Yukiko's Castle
----------------

When you first enter, you are introduced to the basics of Persona 4 Golden
dungeon-crawling.  Pay attention because it's really important.

If you want, you can explore the floor (as I always do) but there isn't much
of a point at the moment.  Still, you can practice your combat basics and
learn about Shuffle Time.

Shuffle Time is made easier in that you get a set of cards and are able to pick
one as a bonus.  You can get new Personas, more money, more EXP, healing, and
other such benefits, making this really handy.  You are then told that you can
trigger Shuffle Time more often if you get "1 MORE" turns more often.  This
makes it important to find an enemy's weakness and fight your battles in a more
strategic manner.

Do whatever you want to on this floor, and once you reach a set of stairs, go
up when you feel you have fought enough.

On the 2nd floor, after a while, you will learn why Yosuke has been acting on
auto-pilot; he is set to "Act Freely" in Tactics.  You can keep it that way
if you want characters to do whatever you want, but for more control and less
unpredictability, I would suggest always keeping your characters on "Direct
Commands" so that you don't rely too much on luck to win your battles.  If you
are used to Persona 3's playstyle of selecting character playstyles, those are
once again available, so pick whatever tactics fit your playstyle.

Once you pass through the door, you meet Chie and her Shadow for another boss
fight.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
BOSS FIGHT: Shadow Chie

Shadow Chie is harder than Shadow Yosuke for obvious reasons.  It is good that
you have Yosuke and can handle this battle just as easily as you did with
Shadow Yosuke.

Shadow Chie is weak to Wind, and if you noticed Yosuke's moveset, he's got Wind
skills for your using, in this case it is Garu.  Use that to knock Shadow Chie
down.  She resists Physical attacks though, so do be cautious about using your
health for physical attacks.

If you skipped through your battles or lucked out on fighting in the first
floor, you will notice that every time you knock an opponent down with more
than one teammate, you get the signal for an All-Out Attack.  It's a powerful
attack that can normally devastate enemies for a win, but against bosses or
more durable enemies, it will just deal a lot of damage and remove all bad
effects on them such as the Knockdown status.

Shadow Chie uses Mazio which Yosuke is weak against (shares that with his
Shadow) which will knock him down.  Your character will be fine, but Shadow
Chie will use the next turn to use Bottomless Envy, a powerful attack that
will give your character the Dizzy status.  This prevents a character from
doing anything for one turn, so try to guard when Shadow Chie is about to use
Mazio.  Normally, Mazio comes after Green Wall wears off.

Green Wall will take away Shadow Chie's Wind weakness temporarily, for about 3
turns.  In this time period she always hits you with physical attacks.  This
battle isn't hard as long as you get your health up and keep up your assault.
Just watch your health, because after about 50% health, Shadow Chie will use
Mabufu, which is an Ice skill that isn't necessarily dangerous, but it is
Shadow Chie's strongest attack and can deal more damage than Mazio, so be 
prepared for that attack when the fight drags on for a while.

If you got new Personas when fighting in the first floor, you will find they
are not as strong as Izanagi will be when you fight, so Izanagi is typically
your best bet for this fight.  If you are lucky enough to encounter a Persona
with Wind skills, you can hit Shadow Chie twice for a double All-Out Attack,
which will definitely hurt.  Izanagi's Rakunda will also be able to help you
deal more damage and keep this battle going faster.  Rakukaja is always an
option if you feel you are taking too much damage.

When you get the note that Shadow Chie is scornfully looking at Yosuke, it
means that her next move will be Mazio, so be sure to Guard there.  This
doesn't happen when she switches to Mabufu, so do pay attention.  Fortunately
none of your characters should be weak to Ice, so this should not present any
other threat than a lot of damage.

Keep your health up, make sure your character does not die, and have Yosuke
move strategically and you should win this battle easily.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

After this fight, Chie will gain her Persona, Tomoe.  Here you also learn of
the time to save Yukiko, and how it won't come anytime soon.  This lets you
convince Chie to leave and come back when you are all healed up and ready to
fight.

Chie also apologizes for her headstrong behavior.  Never saw this from Yosuke.
Impressive.

After meeting back at your Junes TV point, Chie gains the glasses and joins
your party.  You then are appointed leader and get the Fool Social Link.

-----------------
Dojima Residence
-----------------

Dojima inquires you about the fiasco he had to get you and Yosuke out of.  It's
some honest concern, and I appreciate that aspect of him.  Nanako butts in and
ends the potential interrogation, but you learn that Dojima is awfully
suspicious of you now.

Save and go upstairs.

Except you have a new twist!  Nanako then calls you back down for a phone call,
which is from none other than Mr. Morooka.  He has prepared something for you
that requires you to meet him at the Shopping District tonight.  In order to
leave, you need to talk to Dojima, or else you will be prevented from leaving
the house by him.

You then get to leave at night.  Go to the Shopping District.

First thing to note is that you have limited places to go to at night.  Also,
stores are closed so you can't buy or sell anything.

--------------------------
Central Shopping District
--------------------------

Here you meet Mr. Morooka, who will hand you a Yaso High Jersey costume.  These
can be worn throughout the dungeons, and are purely cosmetic, but affect after-
battle poses and get different reactions from party members when you talk to
them with the Square button.

Now that is done, so go home and rest for real this time.

==========================
April 18th (04/18) Monday
==========================

--------------
Yasogami High
--------------

You meet up with Chie for a discussion.  Keep picking options.

When it comes a certain dialog, "Falling for me, huh?" can only be picked with
high Courage, which you don't have at the moment.  This problem is fixed later
when you play the game again.

After some talks with Chie, you develop the Chariot Social Link with her, and
she can also pick someone up after they have been knocked down in battle.

When asking for her contact information, you can only "Ask her straight out" if
you have high Courage, which you once again do not.  Sad, because that would
have been really cool.

The game then notes that you need to watch the weather, and after a few days of
rain, fog sets in, which will kill your rescuee if you have not saved them yet.
Checking the weather is super important in this game, because it is not like
Persona 3 Portable which progressed no matter what you did.  Your game can end
if you just mess around, so pay attention.  You'll know time is nearly up when
there are a bunch of rainy days on the calendar bunched together.

In class, answer "Beta" to get a Knowledge increase.

And now, the moment you've all been waiting for.

FREE TIME!!!

After two hours of sitting there and experiencing the game dragging you around,
(assuming that you watched everything without fast-forwarding or skipping)
now you get to do whatever you want to do.  Increase Social Links, increase
statistics, go save the person in the TV, all that is up to you.  As a result
I will no longer guide you directly on what to do every day, because that is
all up to you.  But I will tell you what happens each day and if it is 
important to note.  I will also tell you the last day you have until the person
inside the TV is killed, so make sure to explore that day if you haven't saved
that person yet.

As I set my game on Normal, and with the additions in-game, I was able to do
what I like to call in this game "Immediate TV Busting" which is freeing the
person from the TV the first chance you get.  This may not be a smart use of
days, but if you don't rescue the person in the TV ASAP, you may often find that
your party members will not increase your Social Links, and will instead ask to
go into the TV.  This is from my experience at least, but I will still tell you
what you are able to do that day if you don't choose to rescue immediately.

Going to Daidara in the Shopping District tells you that you can sell materials
you get from exploring and fighting to him, which leads to the creation of new
materials.  Do this often to get new weapons.  Personas may be the main form of
power in this game, but weapons play an incredibly pivotal role too, something
I learned later and made me appreciate weapons more.

Going to the Velvet Room has Igor, who will now fuse Personas you have into
a more powerful Persona, at the cost of the current Personas you use for the
fusion.  If you want those Personas back, talk to Margaret to access the
Persona Compendium, which lets you register Personas that you work on/find, as
well as edit as you play the game.  You can also bring back the latest version
of the Persona you have registered for some money, so you never really have to
worry about losing a Persona forever.  You do have to worry about overwriting
a Persona that you have made incredibly powerful with the more generic Personas
however (it happens more to people who aren't used to the game).

New to Persona 4 Golden is Marie, who will let you access a new function known
as Skill Cards.  These are cards you gain with Skills that let you teach a
Persona any skill you want, as long as you have the respective card that can
teach that skill.  You gain these through Shuffle Time and an alternate method
I will cover later.  Once obtained, you can either keep them and use them or
give them to Marie.  Giving them to Marie means you lose the cards you have,
but you can buy an infinite amount from her if you have the money, which lets
you customize Personas for a fee.  You can only give her one unique skil card,
meaning that she will only take skill cards that you haven't already registered
with her.  This lets you keep repeat cards that you may find while exploring.

Re-entering the Velvet Room again after leaving will spark a conversation that
lets you talk with Marie outside of the Velvet Room from now on.

You can buy vegetables from the woman at Junes.  Handy while outside of battle,
but not very useful inside.  Not yet at least.  But the Tiny Soul Tomato can
provide some help if you're low on SP, and they do provide more than a Soul
Drop.  The only problem is that they are limited in quantity and easily
out-performed by other items very early on.

She sells 3 Tiny Soul Tomato today.

That is it for new information.  You can stock up at Shiroku if you like, and
then do as you will.

To start getting insects, you can go to the Shrine and talk to the first boy
you see.  He will ask for a random drink that you can get at the vending
machines, and will trade for a Tatsuhime Ladybug (or sometimes two) per time
you give him drinks.  Handy way to start off fishing, because now you need
bait to fish, and insects make perfect bait.

Talk to Teddie to show you the way.

Once at the Gate, talk to Teddie to get 3 Goho-M, which will teleport you out
of the dungeon if it gets too dangerous or you want to leave for other reasons.
It's handy in case you're being overpowered and want to save your progress.  If
you need more, you can always buy more from Shiroku or find it in Red Chests.

Upon entering, Teddie tells you the layout of the dungeon will always change,
but he will remember the floor's current form, giving you a map in the lower
left corner.  You can enlarge it and see it with the START button.

Chie is on the Full Assault tactic when you first get her, so switch her to
Direct Commands if you want.  I always switch to Direct Commands, but it's a
play choice, so do what you will.

Speaking of Chie, your team will now consist of you, Yosuke, and Chie.  You
can't have any other team changes, so that will be your mandatory team for
Yukiko's Castle.  So for those who wanted to do "Main Character Solo Runs",
sorry, but it's not possible in this game.

Immediate TV Busting will be difficult for this dungeon the first time.  Your
characters probably haven't had enough training time, your items are limited,
and the opponents will likely overwhelm you after constant fighting.  SP
conservation will be really difficult, so if you do attempt to do it, dive into
your inventory and start using your items to help out.

when you find the stairs for the first floor, Teddie responds with the comment
that he can return you to the stairs at anytime once you find them.  This is
handy if you want to do more exploring on the floor and find the stairs early,
as this lets you run anywhere you want, and you can press the Square button
to immediately move on.

A key point to note is that this works anytime you find a set of stairs, and it
works both ways.  This means you can go up and down a floor as long as you find
the stairs (but you will always be able to go down when going up, and vice
versa).

Upon reaching the second floor, Teddie tells you about being tired and going
back to rest.  The help box notes that if you do leave the floor (With Goho-M
or the Traesto skill), you can start again at that floor.  This is handy if you
need to make repeat visits to the dungeon, as it prevents you from moving back
and starting all over again.

You are also reminded of how to ambush a Shadow to gain an advantage in a fight
and when to approach them.  This is made easier than in Persona 4 where they
would instantly move towards you; now you have a chance to run behind them and
take a swing.  This takes some getting used to, but is really easy to do after
a while.

For this dungeon as you can see from the enemy list, you'll find that most
enemies are weak to Fire, an element which no one on your team has yet.  To
get through, I highly recommend fusing a Persona that has both Fire and Electric
skills (Zio and Agi) so that you can start hitting weaknesses and get through
a lot easier.

Resort to using a lot of All-Out Attacks to win battles for the first few
times.  At your level, it may not kill them, but it will weaken them quite a
bit.  Chie will learn Bufu (an Ice Skill) after a few levels, so don't be
afraid to pass off the responsibilities to both her and Yosuke.  Get used to
your team for a while and see what they can and can't do.  Fortunately in this
dungeon, the Personas you obtain can quickly make up for what your team doesn't
have, so don't be afraid to switch Personas mid-fight or use a Persona other
than Izanagi.

When you arrive at the 5th floor for the first time, you will be warped 
around the place in a clockwise fashion.  No need to worry though, this 
floor's structure doesn't change.  It's a special floor, and thus structure 
is constant. The problem is she will warp you in a square until you can get 
to the door on the right side.  This can get very annoying, but it involves 
going the opposite  direction and trying to complete the square as much as 
possible.  Then, once you have been teleported to the bottom, go back to the 
room on the right and you should be able to enter.  You will encounter a few 
locked doors, but you will be able to open those later.  On the left room, you
will find 3 Diamond Shields, increasing your team's defense like Rakukaja 
does.

Once you open the room on the right, here is your first mini boss fight.
(Hey, that rhymed!)

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
BOSS FIGHT: Avenger Knight

This is a tough guy, especially at this stage in the game, he will likely be
the toughest opponent yet.  He will start the battle with Tarukaja to boost his
offense, and then start using Skewer to hit your team.  This will hurt, really
bad, so make sure to heal with Medicines or Yosuke's Dia (which, thanks to his
Magic stat, is pretty useful).

He is weak to Fire, so your best bet would be to unload your best attacks and
some Fire Skills on him (Agi for example).  This battle will make you see what 
your strongest attacks are (and let me tell you, they are not always magic 
Skills), because you need to take him down quickly.  A good way to start would 
be using Izanagi's Rakunda to lower his defense, making your attacks hurt more,
or you could use Tarunda to negate his attack power (Slime should have this 
skill).  You could also try Sukunda if you have none of the stat-reducing 
skills listed, but you would still be treading on thin ice because he can still
hit you.

After about 50% of his health is gone, he starts using Poison Skewer, which is
his regular Skewer only with a chance of Poison, and Power Charge, which will
double his attack power and pretty much instantly kill any un-guarded character
without any changes to his offense.  Thankfully, it only lasts one attack,
regardless of whether he hits you or not, so using Sukunda on him or Sukukaja
on your party would be quite handy to increase your odds of survival.  He can
also use Red Wall to counter your Fire Skills, so make sure you have other
ways of hurting Avenger Knight.

Just keep unloading your attacks.  That's the best thing you can do, and that's
the only thing you can do.  Guard whenever he uses Power Charge, and remember
to heal and revive accordingly.  If things are getting tough and you need a
hand, if you found the Diamond Shields earlier, they will help reduce the
damage you take quite a bit, which can mean a lot while trying to keep your
team alive.

If you have Skills that can cause status ailments and deal damage (ie. Chie's
Skull Cracker Skill), they can come in handy too because Avenger Knight can be
inflicted with a status ailment.  If you're lucky, the Avenger Knight will have
to deal with that ailment and will have trouble hurting you.

For reference, when I defeated Avenger Knight, I had a team of:

Yu Narukami	Yosuke Hanamura		Chie Satonaka
Level 12	Level 11		Level 11

Persona(s) Used:

Izanagi, Level 8

Zio
Cleave
Rakukaja
Rakunda
Tarukaja

Orobas, Level 9

Agi
Hysterical Slap
Dekaja
Hama (fused Skill)
Garu (fused Skill)
Dodge Ice
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

You will get the Glass Key after this fight.  You can now open the rooms at the
top and the bottom, something you couldn't do before.  The bottom room will
have 3 Goho-M.  Nice reward.  The chest contents change after opening, so you
can't keep getting Goho-M in that manner.

On the upper levels you might see the Avenger Knight again, but the good news
is that this version is exponentially weaker and easier to handle.

Once you reach the 8th floor, you will reach Yukiko and her Shadow, and enter
into a boss fight.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
BOSS FIGHT: Shadow Yukiko

This will be quite a challenge, because this is your first real boss fight.
Unlike Persona 4, Shadow Yukiko is now weak to Ice (quite fitting actually, I
always wondered why this wasn't the case), so Chie's Bufu spells will be
instrumental in dealing damage with All-Out Attacks.  If you have a Persona
with Bufu (most likely Apsaras), that will set you up for 2 All-Out Attacks.
Handy on a boss like this.

Shadow Yukiko uses Agilao on your team, which if you haven't seen yet, is a
more powerful form of Agi, and even Double Fangs, which is a physical attack
that hits twice.  When she reaches about 50% health, she'll start using Burn
to Ashes, a powerful Fire attack that hits everyone.  She can also use White
Wall, negating her Ice Weakness and making it harder to hurt her.  She will
also use Terror Voice, inflicting Fear on a team member.  I highly suggest
healing it, as it prevents your team member from moving and they could run
away, something you do not want in a boss fight.

You will know Shadow Yukiko will use Burn to Ashes when you get a message
saying Shadow Yukiko is staring passionately at your team.  That is your cue
to Guard with Chie (or everyone).

Also at 50% health, she will summon a Charming Prince to aid her in combat.  It
isn't a terrible threat, but it will negate your All-Out Attack efforts as it
is not weak to Ice.  It will also use physical attacks on your team, and they
do pack a strong punch.  Fortunately, after you weaken it a little or some time
passes, the Prince will run away, evening the odds once more.

For this battle I recommend either a Persona with Bufu skills, a Persona that
resists/negates Fire attacks, or a Persona that has no Fire weakness that has
strong attacks.  Orobas is one good example of a Persona that can help you
through this fight, but mix and match.  If for any reason you still have
Izanagi, he wouldn't be bad for this fight either.

You will need to watch your health closely, and have Chie guard if you feel a
Fire attack coming, because her weakness to Fire is going to be exploited quite
a bit in this battle, and Shadow Yukiko will make good use of her Extra Turn.

Unleash Bufu/Mabufu whenever possible, or use your strongest attacks to win
this fight.  Yosuke should be your medic and secondary attacker, Chie should be
your primary powerhouse, and your main character should also be a powerful
attacker, not a medic, because Chie can't fight this battle by herself (that
would be almost suicidal).  

I used Orobas for this fight, and it let me use my main character as a physical 
attacker (because for obvious reasons I'm not using Fire attacks on something 
that is resistant/immune to fire, nor something that launches Fire attacks on 
me) despite Orobas not being a physical attacker. Keep in mind that being 
resistant/immune to Fire may leave you with only Fire attacks, but it will let 
you use physical attacks to compensate, since you won't be as concerned with 
Shadow Yukiko's attacks.

Keep the pressure on and you should be victorious.

When I defeated Shadow Yukiko, my team was:

Yu Narukami	Yosuke Hanamura		Chie Satonaka
Level 15	Level 15		Level 15

Persona(s) Used:

Izanagi, Level 10

Zio
Cleave
Rakukaja
Rakunda
Tarukaja
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Once the battle is finished, Yukiko gains Konohana Sakuya as a Persona.

-------
Junes

Once out at Junes, you will discuss the mystery more.  Pick options for the
first set of options, and when the second set comes around, select "Let's call
it a day" to gain an Understanding bonus.

-----------------
Dojima Residence
-----------------

You are now formally introduced to the young detective known as Adachi.  He
discusses finding Yukiko, and keep picking options.  Family life promises to be
entertaining after a rescue.  Interesting.

You also automatically get the option to save.  Do what you will here.

===========================
April 19th (04/19) Tuesday
===========================

-----------------
Dojima Residence
-----------------

You will start the day receiving a phone call from Margaret telling you that
you shouldn't worry too much about rushing to save Yukiko or anyone trapped in
the TV.  Time is better spent on refining your Social Links and other such
activities.  At least that's what she means when she talks about "quenching
your heart's yearnings".

If that was confusing to you, Margaret basically told you not to worry so much
about saving the person that all your days are spent rushing to complete the
dungeon.  As I have done in testing, it is possible to complete ALL dungeons
within a single day, as early as the first chance you get to when it's the last
day to rescue.  It sounds unbelievable but I can guarantee it is possible.

However, this may or may not be a wise decision, because as you might note when
fusing, your new Personas are dependent on the Social Links you form, and the
higher the Social Link, the higher level the Persona that comes out, like bonus
levels.  And if you've been playing in dungeons for a while, you will note that
while Izanagi is cool, his EXP gain doesn't match your main character's, so he
will fall behind the levels of the other characters and their Personas.  His
skill set also stops at a really early point, reinforcing the idea that you
cannot beat this game with just Izanagi or else you will be stuck with a weak
Persona with weak skills and poor growth. 

When you first start playing Persona 4 Golden, you HAVE to fuse upwards and
start using different Personas that are not Izanagi.  But don't worry, a lot of
the Personas you get are really cool, and can make up for Izanagi's lack of
power early on.

As such, spend as much time increasing Social Links as you can, and when you
feel ready, plan your trips into the dungeon and stock up on anything you might
need.  You can be overprepared, but that's hard to do in this game, at least
right in the beginning.  If you do so, you will find that when it comes time to
fuse up for boss fights, you will be in a much better position with strong
Personas right out of the gate.

--------------
Yasogami High
--------------

On your way to school you hear that you can join a sports club.  If you go to
the Faculty Office, you can talk to Mr. Morooka about joining other clubs in
school, such as sports and cultural clubs.

To make it simple, you can join both a sports and a cultural club, but only one
of each.  This would make sense after a while, because they both have the same
dates and same restrictions.

You can't do much else today, so I would join a Sports Club today.  You can
choose from the Basketball Club or the Soccer Club.  They both represent the
same Social Link, as you might have guessed, so picking either one has no
impact on your combat abilities.  I like the Basketball Club more, but at the
time of writing I joined the Soccer Club.  Being fair to both clubs.

You will meet Kou and Daisuke at this point.  The Strength Social Link can be
started today.  They both represent the Social Link, but:

If you joined Basketball, your Social Link revolves around Kou
If you joined Soccer, your Social Link revolves around Daisuke

This is important to note because there are very different events, and thus
very different options you need to select when you choose either one, because
they have very different stories.

Sports Clubs meet Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays, except when it rains and
when exams are the following week.  There are also times they meet Wednesdays,
but this isn't as consistent.

-----------------
Dojima Residence
-----------------

Today you get a new option to sneak out whenever Dojima is not home.  This is
a new addition to the game that allows you to explore the town at night.  Here
you can talk to certain individuals out at night to increase your relationship
points with them, or just go out and fish/catch bugs/trade.

You can fish and catch bugs at a later time, which I will tell you, and trading
will be at the new place called Shiroku Pub (which is at the same place as the
Shiroku Store).  There you can trade gems for items, which are not terrible,
but you can easily make better ones at Daidara.  Still, for a dungeon-crawler
on a tight budget, trading gems for weapons and armor is not a bad deal.  This
is also the place where you can trade for 50%+ EXP gain items for every 
character, but the gems to get those are quite restrictive and need and are
very tricky to obtain.  I'll tell you where to get those gems later.

For now, if you choose to explore, you can go talk to Yosuke at the North
Central Shopping District.  You will get a note explaining that while you can
talk to a character and increase your Social Link points, you can't level up
a Social Link here because there's not enough time.  Not much of a problem,
since the main issue in Persona 4 was never not having enough time, but not
enough opportunities to increase someone's Social Link points.  They also tend
to give you items per talk, so this is a great way to obtain some items if you
are running out.

You can also study at home or just sleep and hope for a relationship increase.

=============================
April 20th (04/20) Wednesday
=============================

You should get approached by Yosuke today.  Every time you are approached by
a character in that scene, from the left or right, their Social Link is ready
to advance, so keep that in mind.  You also are not obligated to go see them,
meaning you can still do whatever you want that day, it's just telling you
they are ready to advance.

In class, answer "Three" to get an Expression boost and some points with
Yosuke.  This is the second type of question-answering that gets you stat
increases in class, so take advantage of those.

People you can talk to:

Yosuke (Magician)
Marie (Aeon)

Night encounters:

Chie (Chariot)

Whenever leveling Social Links, try to bring the Persona with the same Arcana
as the link you are leveling.  This helps maximize your relationship point gain
as much as possible, and when you interact with them you gain 3 relationship
points instead of 2, which will greatly reduce the number of days you need to
spend working on that Social Link.

You can also buy books today at Yomenaido Bookstore at the South Central
Shopping District.  They can help you increase your stat gain and maximize your
gains from doing other activities, and if you are going for the Compulsive
Reader trophy, you will need to read ALL books that are in Persona 4 Golden,
so I would get as many as possible.  I personally like to wait until a certain
book is out before I start reading though, but I will snap up those books ASAP
so I don't forget to buy them.  They can still be purchased later however, and
never run out of stock, so if you wanted to buy them later when you had more
money.  They can be read at your sofa at home.

Just a note, if you wanted to start fishing, you need a Tatsuhime Ladybug from
the child at the Shrine (need to have done some trading) and then go to Shiroku
Pub, where you will then be able to feed it to the fish for a Fish Hook.  Then
you can bring it to the old man at the Riverbank at the Samegawa Flood Plain
where you can start fishing as long as you have bait to fish with!

At night today, you can go to the Shrine, and keep approaching the Main Hall
and you will see a Lady in White that everyone keeps saying is a ghost.  She
wants fish for some strange reason.  If you fulfill her demands, she'll then
open up and start trading you gems depending on the fish you have.  This is
super handy if you are interested in trading in Shiroku Pub, as it is the main
place to get the gems you need.  You need your Courage at Reliable in order to
enter, but this is the first day she will appear, and then at other days after
that.

Part-time job listings are available today!  As the name implies, you can
do these for some money.  There is another use for these, as 3 part-time jobs
are also Social Links, and doing them will get you money too.  Doing any job
will get you stat increases for your personality, and are a great way to
maximize your personality stats while gaining some money and (in some cases)
Social Links.

Answer "Tulip mania" in class to get an Expression boost and some points with
Yosuke.

If you go and visit the bulletin board in the North Central Shopping District,
you can find there are 4 jobs available.

Envelope constructor (1000+ Yen, increased Diligence)
Translator (1500+ Yen, increased Expression, needs Knowledge at Informed)
Origami Crane Folder (No money gained, increased Understanding, needs Diligence
at Persistent)
Assistant day care caretaker (4000+ Yen, increased Understanding, Social Link)

The day care job will start off the Temperance Social Link, however this will
not start until the second time you work.  Here you work with Eri Minami, whose
story you will find out about as you continue working.

This Social Link can only be done on Mondays, Fridays and Saturdays, and only

You have a day off today!  Obviously, because it's Sunday.  I never did
understand why Saturday is not free as well, but oh well, I had schooling in a
different country, so I'm not going to insist there is only one way to schedule
school.

People's locations change as well, so you might have to look around a bit more.
Thankfully, these locations aren't hard to find (ie. Yosuke at Junes, Chie at
the South Central Shopping District) because the person in question will be in
plain view.

Kou will call you today to hang out.  Sometimes on Sunday you will get these
invitations, and they take up your whole afternoon, but are sometimes the only
way you can level a school Social Link (who are not your team members).  You
can also decline these and do whatever you want on a Sunday, so it is your
choice on what to do.

Options you pick don't really matter at these points (or so I believe) but if
anyone knows of any, please feel free to contact me.

Answer "Overcompensation" in class today to get a Knowledge increase.

You can now join Culture clubs today!  Just like the Strength Social Link, this
one has two clubs you can join, the Drama and the Music Club.  This represents
the Sun Social Link.  Just as before, who your Social Link revolves around
depends on the club you choose.

If you choose Drama, your Social Link revolves around Yumi
If you choose Music, your Social Link revolves around Ayane

Unlike Kou and Daisuke, they don't know each other.  Their stories are quite
different as well.  I personally enjoy Ayane's story more, but oddly enough
I have never finished it until I wrote this guide.  I don't like Yumi's story
as much, but I have finished it more.  It's up to you which one you pick, but
I will weigh in with my opinions!

They meet on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays, except for the week before exams.
Notice there was no mention of not being able to meet on rainy days, meaning
if you needed a quick Social Link boost for a powerful fusion, Sun Social Link
could be your answer.

If you picked Ayane and went today, select "Help out" to gain an Understanding
increase.

You can also do quests today!  To start off, start by talking to the boy in
your classroom with the water drop bubble above his head.  From then on you
can start doing quests!  Blue means the person has a new quest, and grey means
that you are either performing a quest for the person and/or they are involved
in completing your quest.  For item retrieval quests, you can talk to the quest
giver again to find out where exactly you need to search for the item.

The good news is that completing quests does not take any time at all!  But you
may have to spend several days completing the quests overtime, so try and
remember to do them if you choose!

Oh, and they are completely optional.  There is no giant reward you get for
completing quests, and if you are really caring, there are only 9 relevant
quests you need to complete.  But if you are aiming for a perfect game, then
you have 69 quests to complete, so do your best!  I will note whenever a quest
is available for handy reference.

Quest 1 and 2 are available today.  Check the Quest Guide on what to do.

Today Nanako will tell you she stocked the fridge with food.  This lets you
spend your evening cooking food to gain relationship points with a person.  It
is a great way to gain points if the person you ask wasn't available during
night time.  You also get a trophy for cooking 5 meals perfectly.

When you cook, you will cook well and reach a set of options.  Depending on
which option you pick, you can either ruin the meal and throw it away, make a
dish that is digusting (but will receive funny comments), or make a perfect
dish that increases your relationship points with that person.  I'll advise you
which option results in which food item.  As for who to give it to, I'll leave
that up to you.

There are people who like certain foods but I have no idea who likes what.  To
be honest though, the effects don't change regardless of whether the food is
their favorite.

Lunch is Ginger Pork (Yosuke and Chie like this)

Soak it in oil - Throw away
Score it with a knife - Aromatic Ginger Pork (Good)
Blanch it - Dry Ginger Pork (Bad)

At this point, if your Strength Social Link is at Rank 4, you will meet Ai
Ebihara, your new team manager.  She is the start of the Moon Social Link,
however you need your Courage at Brave in order to start it.  Then, you will
skip class on a random day (how this is decided I am not sure), and the link
will start.  Then you can work on her Social Link just like everyone else.

Daidara is open at night if you go check it out today!  There's nothing special
except he offers at a 20% discount.  A great time to pick up some equipment at

After some discussion on the roof, Yukiko joins your team and your Fool Social
Link goes to Rank 2.

I don't like how you consume someone else's food so quickly, regardless of
what you choose.  Oh well, it's still funny.  Well, slightly.

More discussion, keep picking options.

More planning for the family vacation!  I like the doubt in Nanako's voice and
how Dojima is quickly rebuffed.  Keep picking options.

Night Encounters:

None

=======================
May 1st (05/01) Sunday
=======================

Chie opts to go into the TV today.  At times this isn't such a bad idea, and is
an indicator that now is a good time to go and train.  I personally like the
days when it only rains, but that is just my personal opinion.

In dungeons, a new boss can spawn.  This won't be as hard as the Shadows, but
they are pretty challenging in their own right.  Beating them nets you a
Courage increase and they leave behind a weapon for a particular character that
is very useful.  It also lets you train, so there's no real downside.  See the
Optional Fights section for more information on these.

The only bad part is you will have to go through the entire dungeon again, as
if it was your first time.  Otherwise, do what you normally do on Sunday.

If you talk to Teddie while in the dungeon today, you will receive the Gag
Winter Outfit.

Quest 3 is available today.

People to talk to:

Marie (Aeon)

Night Encounters:

None

You can talk to Chie at the North Central Shopping District, but it will just
be about going to the TV to train.

You can view an interesting scene involving Marie if you check the Velvet Room
today.

You can check the fridge for a Courage increase today.

Fun fact: Down at the riverbank, apart from the usual girl and old man, is
another person sitting there.  His name is Taro Namatame, the person whose
business has been in the news for a while.  You can run into him every now and
then around Inaba after this date, but there's no significance in his presence
other than being there, so don't worry about having to talk to him.

=======================
May 2nd (05/02) Monday
=======================

You get a free Knowledge increase in class today.

You are also told midterms are next week.  If you haven't already, now might
be a good time to start studying for midterms by increasing your Knowledge.

Doing well on the tests requires a great deal of Knowledge and question
answering, but if you do well, ALL your Social Links at school get some
relationship point increases.  This is particularly handy, and why I try to
get the school Social Links done soon, because at school, there are two Social
Links that you have to unlock by doing other Social Links, which I will cover
later.

Quest 4, 5, and 6 are available today.

People to talk to:

None, but you can talk to Yosuke/Chie for some studying.
Yukiko, but nothing happens.

Night Encounters:

Kou/Daisuke (Strength)

Talking to Yosuke today lets you learn you can fish at Samegawa River.  You
will need to get the Fishhook from Shiroku Pub first.

You can check the fridge for a Courage increase today.

You can also study with Yosuke or Chie to boost your Knowledge and gain some
relationship points.  If you didn't know already, you can study in the library
for some Knowledge as well.  You also tend to study better when it rains.

You can try talking to Yukiko, but nothing will happen.  Time won't pass, but
you are unable to get anywhere with her right now.

You come home today with some depressing news, your outing is cancelled because
Dojima's vacation time can't be used due to sick people.

========================
May 3rd (05/03) Tuesday
========================

-----------------
Dojima Residence
-----------------

Today is a surprise!  Chie comes over to play!  Well, more like invite you out,
but she invites Nanako too.  Keep picking options.

Chie then gives your main character the nickname of "big bro", which, similar
to Teddie, gives Nanako a way to call you.

You learn more about Nanako's past.  It's actually really unfortunate and
touching at how she copes with it.

The Justice Social Link starts today with Nanako.  This is one of the Social
Links that can be worked on at night, and by that I mean, it's not like the
night encounters.  You can actually level up Nanako's Social Link at night,
and you actually have no other choice, because you can only talk to her at
night.

Night Encounters:

Yosuke (Magician)

=======================
May 4th (05/04) Monday
=======================

Day off from school!

You are invited by Yosuke to hang out.  It will be with Nanako, Kou, Daisuke,
and Yosuke.  It's pretty funny.  You'll get relationship points with all of
them.

People to talk to:

Chie (Chariot)
Marie (Aeon)

Night Encounters:

Chie (Chariot)

========================
May 5th (05/05) Tuesday
========================

Today you go somewhere different.  However, no matter where you go, you always
go to the shrine in the end.

Here you meet a fox and start the Hermit Social Link with it.

Yes, you read that right.  You start a Social Link with an animal.

Given the game's storyline and what Igor told you, I'm not sure how that was
even possible, but oh well.

The fox has leaves that you somehow find handy after seeing their effects on
the old man today.  Now begins a very weird service of healing back your SP
for a ridiculous amount of Yen.

The Hermit Social Link is different in that you don't level up by talking to
the fox, but in fact, you do quests around the town to fulfill the fox's
desires.  It is one of the few links that can be worked on while it's raining,
so take advantage of it.

Also, I won't list when the Hermit Social Link is available.  The reason for
that is because it is ALWAYS available and is dependent on whether you do the
quests or not.  There's no real time limit, but you still need to leave a few
days to complete the quests.  Also visiting the fox will take time during the
day, so plan for that too.

Dojima comes home today and gets you and Nanako presents.  You get a swimming
suit.  How nice.

You can check your fridge for a Courage increase today.

=======================
May 6th (05/06) Friday
=======================

You run into Yosuke.  Keep picking options.

If you go to the shrine today, you'll meet the old man you met when you met the
fox.  He'll start relationship fortunes at the shrine today.  This lets you
increase someone's relationship status as if they were with you, but will still
not let you increase Social Link ranks; you have to meet with them.  The
fortunes range from small to large, so try your luck and see what happens.

There are new books for sale at Yomenaido Bookstore.

Quest 7 is available today.  I bring this up because this will trigger an
event outside your shoe locker, after which you are able to check your shoe
locker occasionally for an item.

You can also talk to Dojima at home to start the Hierophant Social Link.  Just
like Nanako, you can only work on it at night.

=======================
May 9th (05/09) Monday
=======================

MIDTERMS START TODAY!!!!

You are asked specific questions from classes on these days.  The answer to
each of these questions came from a day where you were in class.  If you can't
remember, don't worry, I'll be posting answers for these questions in case you
forgot.

If you wanted to tackle them on your own, there is a way to check if you were
right.

If you got the answer right, you will have a musical note above your head and
you feel confident you got the right answer.

If you got the answer wrong, you will have sweat drops above your head and you
won't feel confident you got the right answer.

Happy testing!  Please note that these exams occupy your entire day, meaning
you don't get time after to do anything.  You just proceed to the next day.
Very inconvenient for making progress in anything, but that's how it is.  Do
not be worried though, you still have time to do everything.

Today's answers are:

"Overcompensation."
"1 B.C."

=========================
May 10th (05/10) Tuesday
=========================

Today's answers are:

"Marriage numbers."
"Soseki Natsume."

===========================

Today's answers are:

"Pythagoras."
"Olympus Mons."

==========================
May 12th (05/12) Thursday

Now you see how your character felt during exams.

Test discussion in your group.

Fun fact: Even if you answer the wrong mountain, Yukiko still says she
put that answer as well.

If you go to the Velvet Room today you'll see one of Marie's poems.

NEW HIDDEN SOCIAL LINK ALERT!!!!!

Dojima will tell you about Adachi hanging out around Junes.  You can now find
Adachi at Junes occasionally.

Chie will call about going into the TV tomorrow.

You can also make lunch for tomorrow!

Lunch is Meat Stew (Yosuke/Chie/Kou and Daisuke like this)

Simmer without a lid - Short-Simmered Meat Stew (Bad)
Use strong heat - Throw away
Simmer with a drop lid - Long-Simmered Meat Stew (Good)

========================
May 13th (05/13) Friday
========================

If you go to Junes today, you can find Adachi.  Answer "I'll hang out with you
too." to start a conversation.

You'll start the Jester Social Link with Adachi if you do.

People to talk to:

Eri (Temperance)

Night Encounters:

None

There will be a TV special about biker gangs, and an individual called Kanji
Tatsumi.  Being able to crush groups of grown men while he was a middle school
student...wow.  Impressive.

==========================
May 14th (05/14) Saturday
==========================

You don't get to do anything today because Chie opts for the group to watch the
Midnight Channel.  Go home and watch the channel.

You will see an image, but can't make the connection.  Keep picking options.

========================
May 15th (05/15) Sunday
========================

------
Junes

You will automatically meet here to discuss the case.  Keep picking options.

-----------------
Dojima Residence
-----------------

You go home immediately, so all you can do is watch the TV.  Keep picking
options.

When Yosuke asks you about your choice of girls, choice matters slightly.  Here
is what will happen with the choices.

"Chie." - Nothing
"Yukiko." - Nothing
"Both." - Understanding increase
"Neither." - Courage increase

========================
May 16th (05/16) Monday
========================

--------------------------
Central Shopping District
--------------------------

You just scope Kanji out today, but you meet a Slender young man during the
investigation.  Keep picking options.

Can't do anything today.  Save if you want and go to sleep.

=========================
May 17th (05/17) Tuesday
=========================

--------------------------
Central Shopping District
--------------------------

Now you stake out Kanji.  Keep picking options; you get paired with Yukiko
regardless of what you choose.

Keep on picking.  You then start the Priestess Social Link with Yukiko today.
She can now wake up a knocked down ally.  Nice.

Just like with Chie, you can only ask Yukiko's contact info straight out if
your Courage is high enough.

Funny chase scene occurs.  I like scenes with Kanji.

Anyway, when you get home for the night, all you can do is watch TV.  Yukiko
tells you Kanji went missing, and then you watch the Midnight Channel.

...Umm...yeah...uhh...it's funny but as a male, it's a little awkward for me.

Same for the rest of the males on your team.

===========================

Yasogami High School
---------------------

More discussion of the case, and Fool Social Link moves to Rank 3.

---------
Junes TV
---------

Here you meet with Teddie and learn he's experiencing a few problems.  The main
problem is he can't tell where Kanji is.  He'll need a clue to find out where
Kanji is, something that relates to his true personality.

Now you have to go around town to find out more information on Kanji.  To make
things easier I'll reduce the steps to the bare minimum so you don't waste too
much time.

Go to the North Central Shopping District and go to Tatsumi Textiles, where
Kanji's mother will be.  She will mention the slender young man and how he will
be at Junes from time to time.  If you go to Junes though, he won't be there.
Go to the woman near the elevators to learn he might be back tomorrow.  As a
result you'll have to continue tomorrow and can now do whatever you want.

Another one of Marie's poems can be found today if you go to the Velvet Room.

==========================
May 19th (05/19) Thursday
==========================

Exam scores are released today!  Go see how you did.  Depending on how you did,
you will get a number of relationship points with everyone.

Now you can go to Junes and find the slender young man where the lady once was.
Talking to him will get you the information you need, and then you can go to
the dungeon where Kanji is, the Steamy Bathouse.

If you got the highest score on the test, Ms. Sofue will give you 3 Chest Keys.
She can be found at the very end of the hall, opposite where Yosuke will be,
near the stairway.  Such an odd place to be, and it is hard to find, but once 
you see her you can't miss her.  Nanako will also give you a Portrait Medal if
you talk to her, and Dojima will hand you 30000 Yen.

If you got a high score on the test (top 10 scores), Ms. Sofue will give you
3 Chest Keys.  Dojima will hand you 20000 Yen.

Quest 17 is available today.

If you go to the Velvet Room today, you will see Margaret by herself.  This is
the first potential start of the Empress Social Link with Margaret.  You will
need Knowledge at Expert in order to start this.  After this day, you can start
it at any time as long as your Knowledge is high enough.

Just like the Hermit Social Link with the Fox, Margaret's Social Link can be
done at any time, and is the only Social Link that can be (technically) 
completed in a single day.  It simply requires you to bring Personas to her
that have certain skills.  This can be achieved by simple fusion or by finding
the right Skill Card and giving it to that specific Persona.  Since it can be
done at any time, I won't list Margaret in the people that you can talk to.

To complete her Social Link, I highly suggest using Skill Cards to cut down the
time and effort it would take to fuse the Personas.  Not that you can't do
normal fusion, but for those who played Persona 4 before, it can be a very
tough, time-consuming and expensive process.  Skill cards are much easier, much
cheaper, and very certain (although the fusion process has been made much more
convenient).  Choose whichever one works best for you.

You will find this dungeon is a bit easier with the help of a 4th party
member, in this case Yukiko.  Enemies are stronger, there are more floors,
and each floor is quite large, but thankfully if you fight with strategy, this
won't seem too bad.

Your team is still mandatory, as you can't run in alone.  It will be you,
Yosuke, Chie, and Yukiko.

You will now start seeing a shift towards Light/Darkness skills being used. You
may have seen this in Yukiko's Castle, but from a fused Persona's own skills.
These are skills that are hit/miss (I know, sounds like every attack) but these
are one-hit kill skills.  For example, if you use Hama (Light) or Mudo
(Darkness) on an enemy, you either miss or you instantly kill them.  There is
no in-between sadly, which makes using these quite risky.  As you might expect
they are useless in boss fights (because in most games you couldn't kill bosses
with instant-kill moves anyway).

With such a risk, it may seem painful to use these moves, but there is some
good news.  If the enemy is weak to Light/Darkness, you will almost always hit
the enemy.

The downside is if you get hit with it, that's pretty much the end of you.  So
do be careful.

Other than that, this dungeon shouldn't pose too much of a problem to you.
Since Chie has Ice, Yosuke has Wind, and Yukiko has Fire, using a Persona with
Electric skills will let you hit all 4 elements and battle effectively.

Also, if you are still using Izanagi, you will see what I mean by his power
begins to drop.  At this point, I admire your dedication, but you are quickly
being outclassed by enemies, so it is recommended you switch.

On the third floor, you'll run into Kanji.  This is another one of the special
floors that remains constant.  In the center of this map is a cross, and at
the long end of the cross is a Red Chest with 3 Goho-M's the first time you
open it.  In that cross is also a door that is locked, but you can unlock it
later.  There is also a chest at the upper left part of the map that contains
3 Beads.  Very handy items, so try to grab both.

When you get to the 7th floor, you will meet a mini boss fight.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
BOSS BATTLE: Daring Gigas

This boss isn't as tough, thanks to the entry of Yukiko and your (potentially)
well-trained team.  He starts off with Power Charge, and the next turn he gets,
he will use Rebellion, which will increase his critical hit rate, followed by 
Tarukaja, making him incredibly powerful, especially with the next strike.  
He also uses Single Shot, which is just a physical attack.

This pattern basically repeats itself, and that's the entire fight.  To nullify
his attacks, you can use Tarunda and/or Dekaja if you have it (Yosuke can get
this through Rank 4 Social Link, or Obariyon has it), Dekaja removing all the
stat increases Daring Gigas puts on himself (Rebellion can't be removed though)
which is a good substitute.  Regardless of what you do, Daring Gigas always
follows the order of Power Charge, Rebellion, Tarukaja, and then a physical
attack, so I highly suggest guarding after Tarukaja, and then using the
remaining turns to heal up and unleash your attacks.

I would not recommend using physical attacks because Daring Gigas has Counter,
which if you have seen with Chie, can sometimes reflect an opponent's physical
attacks.  While it's cool when it happens with you, it is not fun when it
happens to you, because your characters will not only take a beating, but are
now open to a charged, enhanced physical attack with an increased chance of
a critical hit.  And from Daring Gigas, that will potentially kill any party
member, so try not to use them.  On the plus side, it does work against him as
well, so having Counter as a passive Skill will help you in this fight too.

Physical resistant Personas (like Eligor) help greatly in this fight.  Other
than that, your Persona with the best Magic stat and powerful Magic skills 
will be good too.  Personas with stat reducing Skills are useful too, and so 
are Personas with Dekaja.

I would recommend your main character and Chie being the main powerhouses,
Yosuke your secondary damage dealer/medic and if possible, stat reducer, while
Yukiko is your primary medic.  Of course these roles can change, but this will
provide some consistency while still keeping your characters ready for the
fight.

For reference, when I defeated Daring Gigas, my team was:

Yu Narukami	Yosuke Hanamura 	Chie Satonaka		Yukiko Amagi
Level 23	Level 23		Level 23		Level 23

Personas Used:

Jack Frost, Level 20

Mabufu
Dodge Fire
Bufula
Mazio
Tarunda
Sukunda
Dekunda
Ice Boost
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

After this battle you should gain the Bathhouse Key, which will open locked
doors in this dungeon (if you remember there was a locked door on Bath #3).

Once you reach Bath #11, it's a boss fight with Kanji's Shadow.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
BOSS BATTLE: Shadow Kanji

This battle is hard.  Mainly because you have to deal with 3 enemies at the
start of the battle, and unlike Shadow Yukiko, they don't run away, so you will
have to deal with them.  I would finish them off, because they make this battle
extremely difficult.

There is Shadow Kanji, Nice Guy on your left, and Tough Guy on your right.
Shadow Kanji himself has no weaknesses, but Nice Guy is weak to Ice, while
Tough Guy is weak to Fire.  It is vital that you take the two Guys out, because
Nice Guy will use Red Wall to remove Tough Guy's weakness to Fire, While Shadow
Kanji will use White Wall to remove Nice Guy's Weakness to Ice.  Nice Guy will 
start using skills like Tarukaja and Heat Riser on Shadow Kanji, which enhances 
him.  Tough Guy uses a lot of physical attacks, such as Sonic Punch, on your 
team.  Heat Riser, by the way, is like using Tarukaja, Rakukaja, and Sukukaja 
on an ally all at once, which is also why I recommend Dekaja for this fight; 
using Tarunda, Rakunda, and Sukunda will take too much time and waste precious 
turns.

Thankfully Tough Guy takes a lot of damage from physical attacks, so that can
help whittle down his health.  Nice Guy never hurts you, so that can be helpful
while you knock him down.

Shadow Kanji uses Forbidden Murmur, which inflicts Poison on your whole team.
Mazio is an Electric attack that hits everyone, Roar of Wrath that inflicts
Rage on the entire team, Fanatical Spark which is a more powerful Electric
attack on the entire team, Fatal End and Assault Dive as regular physical 
attacks, Swift Strike which will hit your entire team with physical attacks 
1-3 times, and Spirit Drain to  gain back his SP.  It's a very varied moveset,
so be careful.

I would take out Tough Guy as soon as you can to make sure Shadow Kanji is the
only one hurting your team.  Nice Guy's effects can be dispelled with Dekaja,
and then focus on healing from Shadow Kanji's attacks.  Once Tough Guy is down,
take out Nice Guy.  Then hit Shadow Kanji with your strongest attacks.  Once
Shadow Kanji gets down to 50% health, he'll start using Fanatical Spark in the
place of Mazio, so be careful, because it will knock down Yosuke and give him
an Extra Turn.

For some mysterious reason or another, I've only had Forbidden Murmur hit the
males on my team, while Roar of Wrath only hits the females.  I don't know if
that is just coincidence, but it is something to note if you are giving
equipment with status prevention effects.  To be honest though, I never found
Poison to be terribly crippling.  Rage, however, can prove to be bad, so unless
you are willing to take chances, heal it immediately.

Mabufu and Maragi would be helpful for this fight.  You can't knock down Shadow
Kanji so don't try.  Personas that are resistant to Electric skills and
physical attacks are great too.  Also, Personas that can dispel Rage (with the
Me Patra skill) are useful (Yukiko can use Me Patra too).  Poison will weaken
you greatly, so Personas with Posumudi are appreciated too.  However, as
Personas with Posumudi may not be the most battle-oriented, Dokudami Teas are
a great way to cure Poison and save some SP (they just cost some money down at
Shiroku).  Similar to Dokudami Teas, Sedatives also help cure Rage if you can't
use Me Patra.

Once Shadow Kanji is the only one standing, the only thing left to do is hit
him with your strongest attacks, and keep Yosuke on the defensive so that
Shadow Kanji gets as few Extra Turns as possible.

For reference, when I defeated Shadow Kanji, my team was:

Yu Narukami	Yosuke Hanamura 	Chie Satonaka		Yukiko Amagi
Level 26	Level 26		Level 26		Level 26

Personas Used:

Jack Frost, Level 23

Mabufu
Dodge Fire
Bufula
Mazio
Tarunda
Sukunda
Dekunda

Once the battle is over, Kanji gains Take-Mikazuchi as a Persona and you bring
him out of the TV.

You get introduced to Nanako's gardening problem.  This unlocks the garden for
planting and harvesting.  This lets you grow plants that have effects just like
items you'll find in the dungeon (ie. Tiny Soul Tomato, Return Daikon), only
they will take a certain number of days.  You can plant new seedlings and
harvest the plants that take no time during the night.  You can also maintain
the plants to speed up the growth rate, or if there is only one day left to
harvest, increase the number of plants you get from growing.  The only problem
is that it will take up your night time, so be careful when planning.

The good news is that doing so lets you increase your relationship points with
Nanako, and if he is home, Dojima as well.  This is a great way to increase
your relationship with the two of them while doing something productive. It
also increase your Diligence, which is basically a 2/3-in-1 activity. 
The plants can help out too, especially my favorite plant.

You can work on the plants by going to the gardening pail near the couch.  If
the plants are ready, a blue picture will appear above it.  If you leave the
plants for a long time after they are ready, they will wilt and the picture
will turn red, indicating the plants cannot be harvested anymore.  

To get new seeds, you can talk to the woman either at Junes or outside the
Dojima Residence who will sell seeds for an array of plants at different
prices.  She will only sell 2 vegetable types at a time, and only 1 seedling
of each.  However, she restocks daily, and when you think about it, the plants
don't grow for a while, meaning the amount you harvest and the seeds available
to you are actually not as few as you would think.

Outside you can buy seedlings from the woman I was mentioning.  She sells
Tiny Soul Tomatoes that restore 20 SP per tomato, and Return Daikon which is
basically a poor man's Goho-M, does the same thing but is a vegetable.

Also your Diligence goes up for helping out today.  Keep picking options.

Answer "I'll help too." to get some relationship points with Nanako.

May 29th (05/29) Sunday
========================

You will watch the Shopping Program today.  Your options are:

1 Adios Shoes and 2 Slimming Foods for 5,980 Yen
1 Medical Kit and 4 Medicines for 2,980 Yen

What you buy is up to you, but I suggest you buy on a need-basis (ie. if you
need better equipment, buy equipment, if you need healing items more, buy the
healing items).  I personally always get the equipment because you can't get
these from Daidara, but sometimes to complete quests I will usually buy the
cheaper options.  Or I buy nothing at all.  Saves money, which can be a
precious resource when you're customizing/fusing Personas/getting supplies.

If you forget or are unable to watch the Shopping Program on Sunday, you can
now watch on Monday and/or Tuesday to catch those deals that you might have
missed.  Keep in mind though that if you bought the deal the first time, you
can't go back and get the other deal again, so it's really a safety device
in case you really wanted to buy something, but an event sidetracked you.

Kou will ask you to hang out today.  Today is special because you can get a
book (Witch Detective) which can only be gotten today if you go out with Kou
and Daisuke.  If you miss it, you can't get it again.  Chie comes along too
for some relationship points as well, so it's a 3 for 1 deal.  You need to say
"Thanks" to get the book; this is one of those times where picking options does
matter.

picking up an item.  You can also listen in on a nice conversation, but it has
no relevance on Social Links, so only go if you have nothing better to do or
need an item.

CREEPY PERSON IN SHOPPING DISTRICT AGAIN!!!

Today's Shopping Program deals are:

1 Jingi Fundoshi and 2 Slimming Food for 11800 Yen
1 Inaba Trout and 2 Amber Seema for 2980 Yen

If you talk to the lady outside the Dojima Residence, she now sells two new
seedlings, Crack Wheat and Hiranya Cabbage.  Crack Wheat is the same as a Chest
Key, only you use Crack Wheats first before you use your Chest Keys.  Also
very handy if you find yourself not having Chest Keys often.  Hiranya Cabbages
are basically another Hiranya, curing one team member of all status effects,
except instead of finding it by chance you get a more consistent source.  Not
too bad.  I would stock up on these seedlings, Crack Wheat especially.  I find
Crack Wheat to be very cool.

If you talk to the boy at the Shrine who has been giving you bugs, he will note
that he has lost his net.  You need to talk to the Lady in White at the shrine
to get it.  Once you get it, you can go bug catching!

The key to bug-catching is to hit the X button the moment the ! mark appears
above your head.  Too slow or too fast gets you fewer bugs.  You can also
read books to increase the number of bugs you get.

Bug-catching takes no time at all, so you should always try to do it so you
can get a sizeable amount of bait for fishing.

Quest 23, 24 and 25 are available today.

Further discussion of the camping trip.

Today Mr. Morooka forces you into the Health Association.  There's a word to
describe him, or maybe words.

When the Health Assocation leaves, a represenative will arrive and give you 
some information.  The committee will come back and ask you what it was.  The
correct answer is:

"Kitao from Santo Inc."
"Can it come in two months?"

You will get a Knowledge and Expression increase if you do this correctly.

You then meet Saki Konishi's brother, whose name is Naoki.  He is the Hanged
Man Social Link.  In order to talk to him, you need a Generous level of
Understanding and you'll need to talk to him more than once before he opens up
to you and the Social Link begins.

Kanji will call tonight about going into the TV if you go to your room.

points with Yukiko.

Yosuke comes to you to discuss motorcycle licenses.  Keep picking options.
Kanji comes and discusses as well.

Kanji just needs a bicycle to beat a motorcycle gang...Oh my goodness.

Answer "Tell me more" to get some relationship points with Yosuke.

I can't believe Yosuke is saying any of this.  I'm not sure if he's aware of
what the real reason he's single is.  And if you have been doing his Social
Link, none of what he's saying matches.  It's still funny in a strange way.

Quest 26 is available today.

You can also read one of Marie's poems if you enter the Velvet Room today.

You discuss the motorcycle licenses with Dojima today.  He is fine with you
getting one, so now Yosuke has you studying to get those licenses.

Answer "Yeah, it's a hassle." to get some relationship points with Adachi.

Today is a good day to re-enter the TV and complete some quests and/or fight
the optional boss in Kanji's dungeon.

==========================
June 9th (06/09) Thursday
==========================

You leave school immediately  because Yosuke forces you to go get your
license the moment school ends.

I'm not sure you could fail the test.  But I haven't failed it yet.  You get
the Scooter License.

You then talk to Dojima and he will hand you his scooter.  Now you can use it
to go to places.  But before that you need to ride it first to explore around
town.  It'll take 3 rides to ride to a new location.  The first two rides will
take time, but the third ride will not, so it's quite handy.

Answer "This is a nice bike" to get some relationship points with Dojima.

You do gain control of the day later.

You can also start Kanji's Social Link today, the Emperor Social Link.  To do
this, you need to talk to a girl either on the 1st or 2nd floor of Yasogami
High and they will mention a bullying incident that may involve Kanji.  Talk to
him at the Practice Building to learn his side of the story.  Keep picking
options and then you will be able to find him to work on the Social Link.

Yukiko will call you about going into the TV if you go to your room today.

New books are available at Yomenaido Bookstore.

If you have been riding your scooter long enough, you can either get to Okina 
City or Shichiri Beach, depending on the ride you took while riding.

If you are at Okina City, you can drink coffee at Chagall Cafe.  The first time 
you drink the coffee, you'll get the Dia Skill Card.  After that, you learn how
you can get Skill Cards from all of your Personas!  You just need to go back
to Chagall Cafe everytime to get the Skill Card from the Persona.  You can only
get the Skill Card from the Persona once, so I would hand those to Marie as
soon as you can, given the fact that some of these you can't find in battle.

There is also Croco Fur, which sells costumes for your team to wear in dungeons.
They are actually quite diverse, so do visit Croco Fur to see what is in.

You can also play a crane game here!  You can get figurines for your shelf
from this game, and they are iconic Personas that have been in the Shin Megami
Tensei series.  It's 100 Yen per try, except on days that end in 0, 2, or 6,
in which case you get 2 tries per 100 yen.  Give it a try, you can fill your
shelf back at the Dojima Residence with these figurines, and if you manage
to fill all of the shelf spaces, you get an increase in ALL FIVE of your
personality stats.  Handy.

Answer "Cheerfulness in a group" to get an Expression increase and some
relationship points with Yosuke.

Yosuke drags you to Okina City today.  After some pathetic showings from Yosuke
and you (because he forced you to), you get control of your character.  Talk to
all the girls until you can talk to the Beautiful Lady near the Station 
Entrance.

Keep picking options.  And then you see how bad Yosuke's plan is.  I couldn't
be more amused.  At least for you, you could thrown Kanji at the person at the
other end of the phone.

witnessed, you are not the most excited for the food.

You can get relationship points by selecting "Eat it" but you need a certain
amount of Courage in order to do so.

Funny stuff with Kanji later.  And Chie/Yukiko.

===========================
June 18th (06/18) Saturday
===========================

Swimming with the group.

Answer "You look cute, Chie/Yukiko." to get some relationship points with them.
You don't get anything if you answer both or nothing (which is unfortunate).

What happens next is something left up to you to see.

You can't do anything else so just sleep today.

=========================
June 20th (06/20) Monday
=========================

More discussion about Rise Kujikawa.  You learn she could be in Marukyu Tofu
in the Shopping District.  It's the one store that you couldn't really do that
much at.

Answer "Meiji" in class to get a Knowledge increase.

If you did the "100% Inaba-Grown Cabbage" Quest (Quest 25) earlier on, you
can now go to the Riverbank where there is a dog digging there.  Talk to the
dog, where you will now be able to use the Sharp Shovel you got as a reward.
You dig up a Bone, a new weapon for Yosuke.

You watch the Midnight Channel tonight and see Rise.

============================
June 22nd (06/22) Wednesday
============================

Today's the day you scout Marukyu for Rise.

-------------
Marukyu Tofu
-------------

Answer "ganmodoki" when searching for options on what to order.  This is
important because for some mysterious reason, Yosuke can't eat tofu.  The
thing is, you have no idea that he can't eat tofu, nor can you find out at any
point in the story up until then.  You'll get some relationship points with
Yosuke for doing so.  It sounds ridiculous that you can't eat tofu, but hey,
my knowledge of allergies/body intolerance is quite low.

You then meet Rise in the store.  More of the story unfolds, and more comedic
stuff from the team.

Dojima and Adachi also talk to Rise, and then dinner gets heated tonight.

Watch the Midnight Channel, and then keep picking options.

===========================
June 23rd (06/23) Thursday
===========================

------
Junes
------

More discussion of the case.

--------------------------
Central Shopping District
--------------------------

You end up staking out Marukyu with Adachi.  You do end up cornering somebody,
and when it gets to confrontation time, keep picking options.

Despite your actions, Rise goes missing anyway.  You watch the Midnight Channel
tonight.

-----------------
Dojima Residence
-----------------

...and Rise is in the TV.  In what appears to be a strip club.

=========================
June 24th (06/24) Friday
=========================

---------
Junes TV
---------

Same drill with Kanji, you need to find more information on Rise to help Teddie
find her.  You also start the Star Social Link with Teddie.

There is something special about the Star Social Link, in that it is one of 3
Social Links that will reach Rank 10 with almost no effort.  If you haven't
guessed yet, the other one is Fool.  The last one is a surprise I will wait for
you to see.

Back to the search for Rise's information, you'll need to go to Marukyu Tofu
to talk to her grandmother.  She will tell you a paparazzi has been hanging
around the Samegawa Flood Plain.

Except if you go he is not there.  Talking to the Kind Man near the tree will
tell you you'll have to come back tomorrow.

Next, you'll need to find Rise's "biggest fan" in the school.  If you talk to
students in school you will learn about him.  He can be found on the 2nd floor
of the Practice Building, and is the fat student that normally isn't there.
He will give you a piece of information about Rise which is very important for
tomorrow.

It's raining today.  You'll need to find more information.

Fortunately the paparazzi will be at the Samegawa Flood Plain despite the rain.
He'll be the Photographer.  He'll ask for an information trade about Rise.
You'll need to answer "She's different on TV" and "I think she's stressed" in
order to proceed.  You can only answer "I think she's stressed" if you talked
to Rise's fan back in Yasogami High.  If you forgot to, or didn't, you can go
back and talk to him today.

New seedlings are for sale today!  They are Wall Paprika and Barrier Corn.
These seedlings are special because you can get many kinds of plants at once.
Wall Paprika casts Red, White, Blue, or Green Wall on you, depending on the
Paprika.  Barrier Corn casts Tetrakarn or Makarakarn depending on the Corn
you use.

You can now go save Rise.  As it is raining, it is a perfect day to go into
the TV and save her.

This dungeon is just as long as Kanji's, at 11 floors.  It's also a bit
tougher due to the fact that enemy resistances will be mostly geared towards
physical attacks, so rushing through fights may be harder than expected.

In case you haven't noticed, you only start with the main character this
time.  You now get to customize your team any way you want.  Yes, making
a team of 4 with 5 people is not very exciting, but let's be honest here,
this is probably the best you're going to get, and honestly I haven't
seen many teams deviate from the combinations you make here.  Do what you
want though.

You can also now take in as many people as you want, from a full party to
just your main character.  I don't recommend doing a solo run right now,
but it's up to you as for what you want to do.

Enemies will now start having Repel resistances, which means they will not
only be unhurt by the attack you hit them with, but that damage will now
be dealt to you, and you have to withstand it with your own stats, armor
and resistances.  On the plus side, you should be able to form Personas
with similar qualities, giving you that same advantage in battle and
watching your enemies hurt themselves.

If you haven't yet, you can switch up your team members now that you have
Kanji, letting you use whatever combination of characters you would like.
Everyone is different, and it's good to find what works for you best.
I personally like using [Yosuke, Yukiko, Kanji] but it's up to you.

When you get to the 7th floor, Shadow Rise turns out the lights, making it
harder to see what is in front of you.  Thankfully, you can rely on the
map to guide you through the floor.

You'll then run into a mini-boss fight at the top of the room.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
BOSS FIGHT: Amorous Snake

This fight isn't actually that hard.  The battle starts off with Stagnant Air,
and then Amorous Snake uses Virus Wave and Mind Silce to inflict status effects
on you while inflicting damage.  It is weak to Fire, so Agilao and such are
quite useful.

It may take a while even with a weakness, so you may want to bring along items
that heal status effects, such as Dokudami Tea, Royal Jelly, and the like.
I'd say bring Hiranya, but that's quite rare, as well as Amrita Soda.  If you
leveled up Yukiko's Social Link a bit, she will learn Amrita, which will be
extremely useful in this fight.

When I defeated Amorous Snake, my team was:

Yu Narukami	Chie Satonaka		Yukiko Amagi		Kanji Tatsumi
Level 37	Level 34		Level 37		Level 36

Personas Used:

Pyro Jack, Level 37

Agilao
Tarunda
Auto-Rakukaja
Rakunda
Dodge Ice
Fire Boost
Marakukaja
Maragion
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

There is no item drop, but thankfully you don't need one.  You can now access
the one door that was locked at the beginning, which turns out to be the stairs
to the next floor.

At the top of the striptease, you'll meet Rise and her Shadow.  As with every
encounter, you end up fighting her Shadow.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
BOSS FIGHT: Shadow Rise

This is actually not too hard.  Shadow Rise doesn't hit that hard.  She uses
all the elemental spells at their first stage (Agi, Bufu, Zio, Garu) and the
versions that hit the entire team (ie. Maragi)

When she falls below 2/3 of her health, she uses Supreme Insight, which
prevents you from hurting her.

As you guessed after 3 turns, this fight can't be won.  I found that to be
relatively stupid, but hey, there's more reasons why I don't like this fight.

When fighting Shadow Rise, my team was:

Yu Narukami	Chie Satonaka		Yukiko Amagi		Kanji Tatsumi
Level 39	Level 36		Level 39		Level 38

Personas Used:

Pyro Jack, Level 37

Agilao
Tarunda
Auto-Rakukaja
Rakunda
Dodge Ice
Fire Boost
Marakukaja
Maragion
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

After a while, Teddie charges up and goes berserk, defeating Shadow Rise.
Rise then gains Himiko as a Persona, but there's one problem.  The way Rise
accepted herself has some problems for Teddie, who develops his own Shadow form
that wants to kill you all.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
BOSS FIGHT: Shadow Teddie

Rise backs you up for this fight.  Finally, fantastic support.  That looks
good too.  More good news is that your team is fully healed for this fight.

Back to the fight, Shadow Teddie is really tough.  He uses Mabufula to hit the
team with a powerful Ice attack.  He uses Mind Charge, which is basically
Power Charge but for magical Skills. Foolish Whisper to put Silence on your
team, Marakunda to lower your team's defense, Heat Wave to hit your entire team
with a physical attack, Ultra Charge to prepare himself for the following
attack, Nihil Hand, which will deal a devastating amount of damage to the team,
and Nullity Guidance to knock a team member down, do damage, make them Dizzy,
and gain another turn. It's a huge moveset.

To counter each one, guard everytime Mind Charge is used, because Mabufula will
follow.  Foolish Whisper needs status heals if someone is hit, Marakunda can
be cured with Dekunda or a Diamond Shield, Nihil Hand can't hit you if you
Guard your entire team, and since Ultra Charge takes two turns, you can hit
Shadow Teddie the first turn, and when you are told he is charging, have
everyone Guard.  Nullity Guidance is tough to counter, but he doesn't use it
often enough for you to be terribly concerned.

If you are powerful enough, you can interrupt Nihil Hand while it is focused.
This means you'll need to unleash a good amount of damage on Shadow Teddie the
moment Nihil Hand goes up.  You have two turns to do so, so don't hold back.
Don't worry though, the reward is an All-Out Attack, which is quite a good
deal for beating down Nihil Hand.  The team I listed below (you can substitute
Chie with Yosuke even) was enough to beat down Shadow Teddie before Nihil Hand
could be used.

You'll need to throw your best attacks against Shadow Teddie, and keep in mind
you don't want this battle to last too long, so try to finish this fast because
Shadow Teddie always keeps hitting you.

When I defeated Shadow Teddie, my team was:

Yu Narukami	Chie Satonaka		Yukiko Amagi		Kanji Tatsumi
Level 39	Level 36		Level 39		Level 38

Personas Used:

Pyro Jack, Level 37

Agilao
Tarunda
Auto-Rakukaja
Rakunda
Dodge Ice
Fire Boost
Marakukaja
Maragion
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Teddie then gains Kintoko-Doji as his Persona.

You then take Rise out of the TV, but not after leaving Teddie to train and
getting the Star Social Link up to 2.

This will take a span of a few days so let's finish this information search
ASAP.

Go to the Samegawa Flood Plain Riverbank and talk to Kanji.  He'll mention
talking to Dojima about it (if you talk to everyone else, you get vague info).
Talk to Dojima at the South Central Shopping District near the bus stop, but as
expected he won't tell you anything.  Dojima mentions Adachi briefly, so that
is your clue to search for him.  But if you talk to Yukiko, she'll mention he
isn't there today, so you have to try tomorrow.

Go to Junes today and find Adachi.  Tell him "I'll tell Dojima" to learn that
the suspect may have had a job in the Central Shopping District.  You'll have
to ask around the stores, but go to Souzai Daigaku (process of elimination; you
would have to ask there anyway) to learn he did work there, and that his friend
is sometimes around the Central Shopping District as well.  But as the store

This dungeon is shorter than the last two dungeons thankfully, but not any
easier.  The opponents are strong and have a great deal of resistances.

You now get Rise as support, but for now, it won't be any different from what
Teddie used to provide for now.  Also, previous Persona 4 fans may notice that
Rise gives WORSE support than she used to give.  This is a bit of a concern,
but fortunately, the recent update let Rise "level up" her support abilities
with the team as well as through her Social Links, so to maximize her support
potential, you will have to work with her a lot.  It's either good or bad
depending on if you like Rise or not.

Teddie also comes along as a front-line fighter.  Now that's quite a few team
choices to make, and thankfully Teddie isn't so terrible that he doesn't fit.
Most likely he will replace Chie if you kept her on your team only for her Ice
Skills, but he can replace anyone and still do a decent job.

This dungeon is filled with lots of treasures, which can provide you
a nice flow of items, as long as you can find them.  If Rise is level 43, her
Treasure Radar shows you where the treasures are, cutting down pointless search
time for non-existent treasure.

Once you get to the 3rd Floor, Rise will mention a dead end.  If you go left
or right however, you'll teleport.  If you look at the map, you'll notice these
areas are shaped like crosses.  If you are in the middle, you can teleport left
and right.  If you are on the left, you can only teleport right, and so on.
The right side has an item, but will force you back to the beginning, while the
left side gets you to the next floor, so stick to the left.

On the 7th Floor, as you move around, you'll notice yourself forced to face a
random direction at times.  This tends to happen when you step on the middle of
a floor square (a sound plays that sounds like something moved).  To avoid
losing your sense of direction (and getting incredibly irritated), move towards
the edges of the square and you should be fine.

Also there is a mini-boss on the 7th Floor, but it can be missed.  I suggest
fighting it though, because you will get a key item that will let you complete
this dungeon.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
BOSS FIGHT: Killing Hand

The fight starts off with Killing Hand summoning an Almighty Hand.  Killing
Hand can attack you with a regular attack, uses Deathbound, another Physical
attack that hits everyone (but is stronger than Heat Wave and the like), and
it can summon more Almighty Hands that can heal the Killing Hand.  The good
news is that it isn't very strong, so these attacks won't hurt you very much.

This fight isn't actually very hard.  Just make sure the Almighty Hands are not
healing the Killing Hand, throw your strongest attacks, and it should fall.

When I defeated Killing Hand, my team was:

Yu Narukami	chie Satonaka		Yukiko Amagi		Kanji Tatsumi
Level 50	Level 49		Level 50		Level 50

Personas Used;

Triglav, Level 47

Heat Wave
Counterstrike
Evade Elec
Mahama
Dekunda
Marakukaja
Mustard Bomb
Null Dizzy
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

You will get an Orb of Darkness for beating this boss.

At the top floor Endgame, you'll run into a snag; the door is sealed.  But if
you fought Killing Hand and got the key item, it'll undo the seal on the door
and you can enter.

You'll face Mitsuo.  He'll lose control of his Shadow and you'll fight a boss.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
BOSS FIGHT: Shadow Mitsuo

This boss can be tough because he will get two turns instead of one.  This
means you'll be hit with more than one attack per turn, or things will be
rushed twice as fast.

First, Shadow Mitsuo is in a sort of armor, thanks to Character Setup.  You'll 
have to destroy the armor in order to hit Shadow Mitsuo behind it.  He'll 
normally attack you in this stage, and throw a Bomb at you, which is pretty much
a Fire attack.  Throw your strongest attacks at it, but try to conserve your SP 
because you haven't hit Shadow Mitsuo yet.  Only after the armor comes off will 
he be hurt.  If you need to stick to Physical attacks, then stick to Physical 
attacks.

Once the armor comes off, Shadow Mitsuo will fall and you get an All-Out Attack
against him.  Now is the time to unleash your assault.

In this form, Shadow Mitsuo casts a Wall of a specific type, which will reflect
the element he will use on your team (Blue Wall means Mazionga) and so on.  He
uses skills that hit the entire team, so be careful of weaknesses, because you
don't want to give this boss more turns than he already has.  He can cast 
Stagnant Air to increase your team's likelihood of status effects, and then use
Skills to inflict status effects.  He can also use Dekunda if you inflicted
status reducers on him, and Dekaja if your team tried to use status enhancers.
This tends to happen more on Extra Turns, so try to reduce Knockdown if you
want to use status enhancers/reducers.

Shadow Mitsuo can also use Whisper, Chant and Prayer to build his armor back
on, but you can interrupt him by dealing enough damage to break the armor and
get another All-Out Attack.  If you fail to do enough damage, the armor will be
rebuilt and you will have to fight the armor again.  The only difference this
time is that the armor can now hit the entire team using the Spell command.

Throw your strongest attacks at him, and he should fall.  I highly suggest
using skills like Power Charge and Mind Charge to enhance your damage, because
with the battle going slower for you, you want to make every turn count.
Personas with no weaknesses are recommended, or if your strongest Persona has
a weakness, accessories that increase your evasion to those weaknesses are
handy (Light/Darkness doesn't count, Shadow Mitsuo never uses those attacks).
The same goes for your team members, even if they already happened to have
their evolved Personas, because sadly in Persona 4 Golden they changed the
evolutions to not have some sort of resistance to their weakness, and can now
only evade.

When I defeated Shadow Mitsuo, my team was:

Yu Narukami	chie Satonaka		Yukiko Amagi		Kanji Tatsumi
Level 52	Level 50		Level 52		Level 51

Personas Used:

Yatagarasu, Level 45

Masukukaja
Diarahan
Growth 2
Agidyne
Rakunda
Mind Charge
Evade Ice
Null Fear
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Thankfully Mitsuo never acknowledges his Shadow, so it disappears.  It's a good
thing too, I'd rather not have him on my team anyway.  I'd hate to see what his
Persona is anyway.

After the fight, you take him out of the TV, and then wrap up the entire case
with a wrap-up party at Rise's suggestion.  Pick "Alright, let's do this" for
some relationship points with Rise.

------
Junes

You all go shopping for ingredients.  You ask Nanako what she wants to eat and
she mentions omelette with fried rice.  You are also making an omelette, so
Yosuke asks you what you want to make.

Orthodox, ketchup flavored (Average)
Asian American, soy flavored (Most)
Herb filled, Provence style (Average)
Aromatic, Mediterranean style (Least)

What you make doesn't really matter, but it does affect the relationship points
Nanako gets.  The effect is slight though, just about as much as gardening, so
I wouldn't be so obsessed with getting the right omelette.

I also suggest not resetting to see the different options.  You never saved
after you beat Mitsuo, so unless you want to fight that fight again, I suggest
just trusting my options.

-----------------
Dojima Residence
-----------------

Star Social Link goes up.  Keep picking options.

More fun after seeing the taste testing of the omelettes.  You can somehow hear
Nanako forcing the nice comments.  She's amazing.

You then invite Nanako out to the Summer Festival that's coming up.  But first
you have to wait until August 20th (08/20), when the festival starts.

Finally, something that's actually not depressing.  And quite funny actually.

At the beach, pick "Yeah, she's something else." for relationship points with
Rise.

And then Kanji's swimsuit.  And the following comments.

And a subsequent wardrobe malfunction.  Keep picking options.

When you get home, you discover Nanako has homework to do.  You have the
choice of helping her work on her homework or not.  I suggest you do so
because it can help you get relationship points with your party.  But
you are able to opt out if you have better things to do.

Saying yes will get you some relationship points with Nanako.

on it and leave it to the last minute, you will still complete it in one day,
so I would recommend working on other things.  You can, however, work on it if
you need a Knowledge boost.  Just keep in mind you can't finish your summer
homework until the last day anyway, no matter how much of a good thing it is to
do your homework early.

This is actually really nice.

Depending on which girl you took to the festival (if you did take a girl) that

different".

You are introduced to Chihiro Fushimi (look familiar?). Keep picking options.

Then there is a super long lecture on Izanagi and Izanami.  This actually is
somewhat interesting, because it's a real Japanese story, and you actually
have half of the story with you.  Izanagi is your Persona!

So many familiar things!  And you run into Naoto.

You then get launched into the King's Game that Rise forces you into.

For the first set of options, what you pick doesn't matter.

After that interesting result, the second set of options doesn't matter either
so pick either one.

You're the King either way.  You then have to make a command based on a
number.

#1 rests on my lap - Rise
#2 sits on my lap - Chie
#3 hugs me - Yukiko
#4 gets a piggyback ride - Yosuke

All 4 options get you relationship points, so choose whichever option gets you
relationship points with the person you need (Don't ask why #4 gets you
points too, I have no idea myself).

After a speech by Naoto, this ends.

See if you can catch the ramen thief.  Hint: It's while you're all looking up.

You then get to pick a souvenir for Nanako.  You can pick whichever one you
want, but she likes Iwatodai Mochi and that will also get you relationship
points with her.  Answer "Come with me next time" to get some relationship
points as well (this may only occur if you have a Justice Persona however).

Great way to end the trip.

Now you need to do another information search about Naoto this time.  
It'll take a couple of days, so follow my guide.

If you talk to your party, the suggestion of asking around school comes up
(or more specifically, that someone may have seen him).  Asking around more
points you towards the school laboratories (right when you enter the Practice
Building).  There should be a girl on the 1st floor of the Practice Building
who will tell you about Naoto getting angry with the policeman, so now you
should find the policeman.

You'll see Adachi, but he doesn't help you.  He's more like a red herring
(but if you ask around the team, they say they shouldn't bother him anymore).
There is a police officer at the North Central Shopping District just north of
the Shrine, who won't talk to you the first time.  Talking to your team tells
you that you need a reason to be concerned, so talk to Chie down by the
Samegawa Flood Plain Riverbank to get the reason that you're concerned because
you're friends with Naoto.  He'll tell you Naoto is obsessed with the case,
but that's it.

You have to find another police officer, but there isn't one around.  At all.
You'll have to try looking tomorrow (again, Adachi offers no help whatsoever).

There is something inside your shoe locker if you did well on your exams.

Fun fact: If you talk to the housewife at Junes, she'll mention she saw
Satonaka-san's daughter (Chie) with a shopping cart full of meat.  And how
she needs to eat more vegetables.  Chie.  Eating vegetables.  Ha.

Now go back to the South Central Shopping District to find another police
officer.  You'll learn the department treats him like a kid.  Put the two
pieces of information together and you'll be able to find Naoto's dungeon.  If
you accidentally select the wrong one, just talk to the police officer again
to get the options again.

This is a particularly annoying dungeon because you'll need to backtrack quite
a bit.

When you get to the 4th floor, you will be locked out and need some sort of
card.  This will be found on the 6th floor, and is called the Research Card.  
There is another door on the 6th floor that can't be opened with the Research 
Card you found, so you need to go back up to the 4th floor and open the door 
with the Research Card you found.

You'll then encounter a boss fight.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
BOSS FIGHT: Dominating Machine

Dominating Machine begins the fight with Power Charge.  He uses Herculean
Strike, which hits your entire team with a physical attack, and that's about
it for his attacks.

It will keep repeating the pattern of using Power Charge before Herculean
Strike, so if Herculean Strike is causing you problems, I would highly suggest
Guarding.  You can chance a dodge, but it isn't something to laugh at if it
hits you, so I would Guard.

It has no weaknesses, so as you've been doing for the other boss fights, throw
your strongest attacks at it.  If you're having trouble, Physical repelling
Personas or those that can nullify Physical attacks are highly recommended.
Rangda would be a great choice because then your main character is safe and
can't lose the fight.

Be wary though, if Dominating Machine is weak and you fail to kill it in time,
it could explode with Last Resort, and as you might have seen from the Dice
you've fought up until now, it's not something you really want in your face.

When I defeated Dominating Machine, my team was:

Yu Narukami	Chie Satonaka		Yukiko Amagi		Kanji Tatsumi
Level 65	Level 64		Level 65		Level 64

Personas Used:

White Rider, Level 64

Mudoon
Mahamaon
Repel Physical
Null Ice
Mind Charge
Megidolaon
Agidyne
Evade Ice
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

After the fight, inspect the treasure chest to get a Leader Card, the card you
need to get past the 6th Floor doors.

Once you get to the 9th Floor, you meet up with Naoto.  Everything is actually
going decently well until Shadow Naoto provokes Naoto, and Kanji insists on
fighting the Shadow Naoto.

There's quite a discovery here, so keep your ears open.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
BOSS FIGHT: Shadow Naoto

This can be quite a tricky fight, because you're going to have to heal some
status effects every now and then.  Make sure you have some Royal Jellies on
you, or Amrita/Salvation.

Shadow Naoto has no weaknesses, but I guess that was obvious since a lot of
bosses have had no weaknesses for a while.  Shadow Naoto does come with 
resistances, such as a resistance to Fire.

Shadow Naoto can use Mute Ray to silence a character and take HP and SP
away from them, Brave Blade, which is an extremely powerful Physical attack
that only hits one target, Agi/Bufu/Zio/Garu-dyne spells to hit a party member
with that weakness, Element Zero to take away all elemental resistances from
your party, and Galgalim Eyes which will inflict Enervation on a party member 
and reduce their health to 1.  When it gets down to 50% health, it will 
upgrade its single-target elemental spells to target the whole team 
(ie. Maziodyne).  Occasionally, you will also see Heat Riser being used, which
just makes this fight a lot harder.

I would strongly recommend sticking to physical attacks in this fight.
Fortunately, at this stage of the game, your team should have access to some
powerful Physical attacks.  If you have Yukiko in your team, she should be
the medic, healing people, as her typical Agidyne isn't going to hurt much
(unless you have Fire Break, but I personally never found that to be handy).
Chie/Kanji can use some powerful physical atacks, especially with Power Charge
and Matarukaja.  Yosuke can help with Power Slash/Brave Blade, and Masukaja to
help dodge Shadow Naoto's attacks.  Dekaja will also help remove Heat Riser if
it appears.  Teddie can take the role of both medic and attacker.

It's not so much I don't want you using magical skills, but with Shadow Naoto
able to resist some elements and remove your elemental resistances, you might
find yourself dragging this fight out if you stick to magical skills.  Of
course, Mind Charged elemental skills, even with resistances, work just as
a physical attack, so see what you can do.

I would suggest healing Enervation as soon as you can, because it stops the
affected party member from doing just about anything.  Healing the character
would be great too, considering Galgalim Eyes reduces your health to 1, and
Shadow Naoto is good at hitting everyone.

Don't focus too much on Personas with elemental resistances, because Shadow
Naoto will keep using Element Zero to take them away.  Instead, get a Persona
with the highest Strength stat and keep whacking away.  A Persona that repels
or nullifies Physical would be handy in case Shadow Naoto targets your main
character with Brave Blade.

Keep the pressure on, heal status effects as needed, and keep everyone's
health up.  And before you know it, Shadow Naoto will fall.

When I defeated Shadow Naoto, my team was:

Yu Narukami	Chie Satonaka		Yukiko Amagi		Kanji Tatsumi
Level 68	Level 68		Level 68		Level 68

Personas Used:

White Rider, Level 67

Mamudoon
Mahamaon
Repel Physical
Null Ice
Mind Charge
Megidolaon
Mudo Boost
Hama Boost
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

After this, Naoto gains Sukuna-Hikona as a Persona.  Looks like this case
isn't over.

Discussion with Chie and Naoto about why Nanako is shown on the Midnight
Channel.

Police Station

The team busts in to see you.  Dojima is told Nanako is missing, and starts
pursuit of Nanako immediately.

You reunite with the team and talk with Adachi for a bit.  You then discuss
what you know with Adachi.

Keep picking options.

You then identify the vehicle.  The answer to this is "A delivery truck."
(This would make some sense given your options, as it is large and no one
thinks is suspicious.  The first two are two small, and the other is too
obvious).

This information tells you who the suspected killer is.  I won't put it here
to avoid spoilers, so find out yourself.

Adachi then pulls a very nice move, letting you out to pursue the suspect.

*CUTSCENE*

Intense and dangerous.

You meet up with Dojima afterwards and find enough evidence to prove the
suspect's guilt in this incident.

This dungeon isn't too bad, but it is a good indicator of how strong you are
currently.  This dungeon shouldn't pose too much of a problem, but if it does,
I would suggest training here, because the battles from here on out are no
pushover.

You also now get Naoto as your last team addition. Slight spoiler, but at this
point you know you're reaching the end, so frankly any more teammates would be
weird.  She finishes up the last of your team combinations, and brings quite
the diversity to the team's Skills.  Customize as you wish, and then head on
through.

Once you reach the 7th floor, there is a boss battle.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
BOSS FIGHT: World Balance

The boss starts the fight off with Mind Charge.  From there it throws either
Agidyne, Garudyne, Bufudyne, or Ziodyne at your team.  And it repeats this
pattern.

There's nothing you can really do about Mind Charge, but you can start getting
Personas that are resistant to multiple elements to help this fight.  Other
than that, use your strongest attacks and watch your health.  Status reducers
should be used if you have them and are struggling in this fight, although
they can also make the battle go a lot faster.

It has no resistances/nullifications/repels, so if you are able to, you can
use Makarakarn/Magic Mirror/Makaracorn on your team to reflect a charged
Skill back at World Balance, which is a powerful punch.  Naoto can learn
Makarakarn at a certain level, so she would be good for this fight.

This fight is a lot easier than other boss fights, so hopefully you won't
struggle on this one.  Otherwise, I recommend training.

When I defeated World Balance, my team was:

Yu Narukami	Chie Satonaka		Yukiko Amagi		Kanji Tatsumi
Level 81	Level 79		Level 79		Level 79

Personas Used:

Sraosha, Level 79

Mahamaon
Brave Blade
Power Charge
Mind Charge
Maragidyne
Hama Boost
Maziodyne
Megidolaon
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

At the top of Heaven after 10 floors, you reach Nanako, and the suspect as
well.  Keep picking options, and then you'll get into a fight after the
suspect goes crazy.

*CUTSCENE*

This doesn't look good.  This could get crazy.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
BOSS BATTLE: Kunino-sagiri

This boss can be very tricky, so try not to let the battle drag on too long.

He can use all the elemental skills as well as their multi-target versions
(this means Agi/Zio/Garu/Bufudyne, as well as Mazio/Maragi/Mabufu/Magarudyne).
He can also use Dekaja to remove any buffs on your team (but he usually does
this after someone has been knocked down).  He uses Control, which lets him
take control of one of your party members (yes, you read that right, they
leave your party to go fight for him) temporarily, and this can't be dodged.
He will use Quad Converge to reduce the damage of all elemental skills, except
for one type, and then hit you with the element whose damage hasn't been
reduced.  He also has a physical attack, but that's not terribly threatening.
When weak, Kunino-sagiri will start using Unerring Justice, an Almighty attack
that hits everyone.  Not as bad as Megidolaon, but still not fun.

The main reason you can't drag on this fight is the fact that he can control
one of your team members, and everyone is probably very well trained at this
stage.  This is later improved to take control of everyone but your main
character, making it almost like a reverse boss fight where you have to hold
your own. Also, Quad Converge can be very damaging if you don't have the element
that isn't affected.  To top it all off, Kunino-Sagiri has a large amount of
health, quite possibly the largest you've seen thus far.  This battle will
take a while for sure, so make sure you watch your health and keep your SP up
as needed.

I would highly suggest putting Tarunda/Sukunda/Rakunda on Kunino-sagiri, and
keeping those on him, since he can't take them off of himself.  If you have
Debilitate (which is basically Tarunda/Sukunda/Rakunda combined into one skill
for less SP), it will help a lot in this fight.  Matarukaja will be very handy
as well, and so will Power/Mind Charge.  Marakukaja and Masukukaja are great
for the defensive side, Masukukaja especially because you'll have a greater
chance of dodging.

Personas that can reflect elements are great too, because that's pretty much
the only threat in this fight.  Watch the elements in Quad Converge, and when
Rise tells you the element that isn't affected, switch to a Persona who repels
or nullifies that element (resist if that's the best you have).

Don't panic when you get a party member taken from your team; it's just for
a short while and they'll be back before you know it.  Do take note of who is
taken and prepare accordingly (ie. if Yukiko is taken, her Fire skills will
hurt, so switch Personas/get Makarakarn up ASAP).

If you find yourself running out of SP, start digging into your inventory for 
SP restoring items.  Yes, there's always the "save them for a rainy day" 
argument, but this would be one of those rainy days.  Unless you have a 
powerful Physical Persona (not very likely), I wouldn't run on a no-SP fight.  
Power Charged/Tarukaja-boosted Physical skills are the exception; those deal 
a great amount of damage.  But try not to use your normal physical attack 
unless that's really all you have left.

Kunino-sagiri has no resistances, so thankfully everything that you do will
hurt (unless Quad Converge is up, then avoid wasting SP and use physical
attacks).  If you aren't dealing at least 100+ damage per attack, then you're
either using the wrong skills or you need to go train, because you're not
dealing enough damage to withstand his onslaught.  That, or you're prepared to
fight for a long time, which I don't recommend.

Chie/Kanji would be great in this fight, especially if you have Power Charge
and God's Hand/Primal Force.  Naoto would be great for using Makarakarn and
reflecting elemental Skills back at Kunino-Sagiri.  Yukiko/Teddie can keep
your team in good shape and hit with powerful skills.  Yosuke is alright, and
can play whatever role you want him to in this fight, but he's not great here
either.  He can cast Masukukaja and deal both powerful physical and magical
skills, but he's no Yukiko/Teddie or Chie/Kanji.  Still, his balance of skills
means he's not as dependent on running out of SP, so I would still bring him
along.

When I defeated Kunino-sagiri, my team was:

Yu Narukami	Chie Satonaka		Yukiko Amagi		Kanji Tatsumi
Level 84	Level 82		Level 82		Level 83

Personas Used:

Sraosha, Level 81

Mahamaon
Brave Blade

Mind Charge
Angelic Grace
Hama Boost

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Afterwards, you bring both Nanako and the suspect out of the TV world.  Due to
the condition of both people, you bring both of them to the hospital.  Nanako
is in a serious condition, but is alright for now.

Meeting before the last day of exams.  Kanji suggests putting the glasses on
to see through the fog, and you are able to see clearly.  Speculation of
where the fog truly comes from.

You are asked to save due to a dramatic turn in the story.  This sounds
very daunting, but it's the truth.  You could end your game without knowing,
so I highly suggest saving.  You can make two files just to make sure.

------
Junes
------

Discussion of the fog and the suspect that has been captured.  Then planning
to buy a kotatsu for when Nanako wakes up.  Keep picking options.  But you
get a call from Adachi and rush straight to the hospital to see Nanako.

-------------------------
Inaba Municipal Hospital
-------------------------

Nanako is taking a turn for the worse.  Keep picking options.  You learn more
about the suspect and the chances of conviction.

However Nanako is unable to pull through and passes away.  While the team is
struggling to accept this, Dojima attempts to reach the suspect, and Adachi
informs the team of this.

Teddie speaks to Nanako one more time.

You then approach the suspect's room with your team and rush in when you hear
a noise.

TURNING POINT!
TURNING POINT!
TURNING POINT!
TURNING POINT!
TURNING POINT!
TURNING POINT!
TURNING POINT!
TURNING POINT!
TURNING POINT!
TURNING POINT!
TURNING POINT!
TURNING POINT!
TURNING POINT!
TURNING POINT!
TURNING POINT!

This is what the game was talking about.  Here you will decide how the game
plays out from here.  Keep picking options for now and keep watching.

After the first set comes the game-deciding options.  Options DO MATTER HERE
so don't go randomly picking options.  However, you can pick other options to
see how the game would otherwise play out.

"Push the bastard in."
"I can't stay here."
"Wait a second here..."

"We're missing something."
"Leave him for the police."
"This won't change anything."

"Whether he'll kill again."
"Whether revenge is right."
"(Suspect's name)'s true feelings."
"Whether he can be tried."

"Why he's scared."
"Something's bothering me."
"He can still repent..."
"I actually don't know."

"...I got nothing."
"He could escape via the TV."
"We're missing something..."

"I can't do it."
"Calm the hell down!"
"I'm sorry..."

Your options are narrow, and it's going to be quite intense.  Pick the
options as you will.

The game will then conclude with the end of the suspect, and then the
game will fast forward to March 20th.

=============================
March 20th (03/20) Wednesday
=============================

-----------------
Dojima Residence
-----------------

You will meet with Dojima today and note how foggy it is outside.  The
death of Nanako is hard to bear for both of you, but it is indeed time to
leave.  You were never able to find Teddie, but he did leave a note for you.
You'll meet up with your friends, and then say your final farewells.

*CUTSCENE*

And that's the end of the game!  Congratulations on completing Persona 4
Golden!  You have the option of creating a New Game Plus and moving over
all your data to another new game.  This means:

-Your Persona Compendium retains its completion rate, as well as the data
 on the Personas you have registered.
-You get to keep key Social Link items that you received.
-Daidara's stock will transfer over to the next game.
-Your current amount of money will transfer over to the next game.
-Your Personality stats will carry over as well.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

Picking the other options will result in the game concluding.  There is,
however, a set of options that will continue the game.  It's hard to know
why, but you'll see in a moment.

Answer in order:

"Wait a second here..."
"We're missing something."
"(Suspect's name)'s true feelings."
"Something's bothering me."
"We're missing something..."
"Calm the hell down!"

The other options will stop the conversation and lead to other endings. The
other endings, however, are really not that much different from the first one
I described, just the reason for pushing the suspect in changes a little.
 
But you should also get that feeling, that with the Fool Social Link stuck at 
9, you're not done yet.  You're also missing one Social Link that you may have 
chanced upon when fusing, which you realize can't be leveled at all.

Keep picking options later, and the Fool Social Link goes to Rank 10.

You can now fuse Loki of the Fool Arcana.

And now, if you made it this far, a new Social Link begins.

The Judgement Social Link.  You may have seen these Personas before while
fusing.

Now you will discuss the murders a bit more.  And some good news!

Nanako is alive again!  But Teddie is missing.

If you have your Jester Social Link at 7, it will rank up to 8 today.

And a short sleep message from the suspect.

The search for Teddie continues to be unsuccessful.  But it starts snowing!

You will also get texts from the friends that you made Social Links at school.
You need Max Social Links in order to get a message from them though.

You have no choice but to rest for the day.

You are then brought to the Velvet Room by Igor.  Keep picking options.
Margaret will show you some quotes from some of the Social Links you have
completed, as well as from your team.

============================
December 4th (12/04) Sunday
============================

Yosuke comes today to tell you he can't find Teddie.  Keep picking options,
and you're going to Junes

------
Junes
------

You can't find Teddie.  Keep picking options.  You then review the case.
Select "The warning letter" to keep going.

Judgement Social Link goes up to 2.  Yep, this is the other Social Link that
automatically ranks up.

-------------------------
Inaba Municipal Hospital
-------------------------

You go to speak to the suspect.  After a diversion on the police, you talk
with the suspect and learn of their side of the story.  It sounds ridiculous
at first, but if you were in that position, it doesn't sound so unlikely.
You also hear that they did see you at that Junes concert.  No wonder they
left so soon.  judgement Social Link goes up to 3.

You go home and can only rest.

============================
December 5th (12/05) Monday
============================

You now have to go around town asking about the case.  To keep you from making
multiple trips, I'll start you off.

Go to the North Central Shopping District and talk to the woman next to the
old man.  Ask her about the murders, and she will mention not seeing anyone
suspicious.  This brings up another set of options when asking people, which
prevents you from having to make two trips.

You'll have to go all over town asking those two options to almost everyone
you meet.  For some people those options won't come up and that's fine.
You will know if you have asked everyone when after asking a question, the
game will tell you no one else seems to know anything about that question.

If you have access to the beach and Okina City, don't worry, they're not
included in the people you have to ask.  The questions never get brought up
to them either.

If you talk to the school girl next to Yosuke, she responds with nothing.  If
you go to Junes however, talk to the school girl there to find out she has
seen someone suspicious.  This then lets you talk to her again and find out
what she has seen, and complete that question.

You don't find anything new however, and then retreat to Aiya for food.

You'll then go outside for some fresh air.  Naoto and Yosuke will follow, and
now you decide whether you really know who the killer is.  The thing is, you
have certain criteria to fulfill.

1. The killer has had a connection with both Mayumi Yamano and Saki Konishi.
2. They knew about the "other side" and what you did there.
3. They also knew what the suspect was doing.
4. No witnesses saw anything suspicious
5. Someone delivered those letters to your house but no one saw something
   suspicious.
6. The killer was able to get close to Mayumi Yamano and Saki Konishi despite
   the large number of police around the area.

That's quite a lot of hints, but still unclear.  Now, for obvious reasons I
know who it is, but I won't put the names down.  This is so you can
experience the story for yourself (I accidentally spoiled it for myself, so
while I find it gripping, I missed the intensity of it).  I want you to get
the best experience possible, yet still know who it is.  So if you are stuck
on this, I will give you my own hints.

This was a lot easier in Persona 4 because there was an obvious hint, but now
I'll do the best I can.

My hints are:

1. It's someone you had to meet.
   (By that I mean they are involved in the story.  There are several names on
    that list who do not appear in the game if you never talk to them.)

2. It's not someone on your team.
   (It's probably really obvious at this point, but each and every one of your
    team members would not put themselves or each other in danger.)  

3. It's not the people previously suspected.
    (You know of their innocence of the first two crimes, so clearly they did
     not do it.)

4. You cannot complete their Social Link, no matter what you try.
   (This is probably the biggest hint.  You can finish at least one Social
    Link by the time you get to this stage of the game, but this one cannot
    be finished because your progress is forced to stop at a certain point.)

5. They're not dead.
   (For obvious reasons, this couldn't have continued if they are dead, yes?
    That sounded really stupid, but you will see what I mean if you check the
    list.)

The list of individuals is:

Yosuke Hanamura
Chie Satonaka
Yukiko Amagi
Teddie
Kanji Tatsumi
Rise Kujikawa
Naoto Shirogane
Ryotaro Dojima
Nanako Dojima
Tohru Adachi
Taro Namatame
Mayumi Yamano
Saki Konishi
Kinshiro Morooka
Mitsuo Kubo
Misuzu Hiiragi
Noriko Kashiwagi
Hanako Ohtani
Ai Ebihara
Kou Ichijo
Daisuke Nagase
Naoki Konishi
Yumi Ozawa
Ayane Matsunaga
Shu Nakajima
Sayoko Uehara
Eri Minami

My main concern is how on earth Ayane and Yumi can appear on this list when
you are only able to meet one of them per playthrough.  You don't even know
if the other existed.

If you get it right, you'll know.  If you get it wrong, you get 2 more
tries.  After the third try, you are unable to identify them and the game
moves on to another ending, similar to if you had thrown the suspect into
the TV, but Nanako is alive.  She's still in a coma though.  Teddie is
still missing.

If you are really, really stuck, then here is the final hint.  ONLY READ IF
YOU REALLY CAN'T DECIDE!!

After deciding on who the killer is, you decide to approach your suspect.
Naoto has suspicions about them too, and then goes with you and Yosuke to talk
to the rest of the group.  You come up with some suspicions, but learn that
something is happening at the hospital concerning the suspect, so you need to
attend to them first before confronting the killer.  Judgement Social Link
goes up to 4.

There is something else you can do here, but I will detail this later in the
walkthrough to prevent spoilers.

-------------------------
Inaba Municipal Hospital
-------------------------

You meet with Adachi and Dojima, as well as the suspected killer.  The suspect
is being relocated but you have some questions for Adachi first.  Keep asking
until you get to "About the warning letter" and the killer will flee after
some confrontation.

The killer escapes into the TV, and you have no choice but to leave and search
for them another time.  Judgement Social Link goes up to 5.

You go home and rest today.

...and SURPRISE!  You're in the Velvet Room.  But no one is there, except...

TEDDIE!!!

Keep picking options, not much else you can do.  You learn more about Teddie
and who he is.  You also tell him Nanako is alive.

Star Social Link goes to Rank 10/MAX, and you can now fuse Helel of the Star
Arcana.

Igor, Margaret and Marie re-appear, and you learn from Igor something special
about the Velvet Room, that Shadows can't come in to the Velvet Room.  That's
somewhat interesting.  He also mentions you summoned something else to the
Room from your memory.

==============================
December 6th (12/06) Tuesday
==============================

------
Junes
------

Still can't find Teddie.  You go into the TV.

---------
Junes TV
---------

You try to search for the killer in the TV, but you can't find them.

-------------------------
Inaba Municipal Hospital
-------------------------

Teddie returns to the hospital!  And then Kintoki-Douji evolves into Kamui for
some added strength.

---------
Junes TV
---------

No luck finding the killer.  You retreat for now.

------
Junes
------

You find Teddie!  He comes back and tell you what he learned about himself.
You bring him up to speed, and the Judgement Social Link goes up to 6.

You then go home for the night.

===============================
December 7th (12/07) Wednesday
===============================

---------
Junes TV
---------

Teddie manages to track down the killer.  And a return to the humor of the
group.  Judgement Social Link goes up to 7.  Wow, I like this Social Link.

You confront the killer.  But you fail to apprehend them just yet.  You are
able to get to them later as they open a path up.  At least they confirm their
role in the crimes.  Judgement Social Link goes up to 8.

If your Jester Social Link was at 8, you have a signal from Adachi that gives
you the courage to confront the killer for a short bit by yourself.  You can
choose whether to take it or not, but you can skip it if you want.  I won't
detail what happens so go check it out for yourself.  However, you will need
to see the killer in order to get Adachi's Social Link to Rank 9, as the
Jester Social Link will change into the Hunger Social Link and begin
increasing from there.

==============================
December 8th (12/08) Thursday
==============================

Today begins the start of the foggy days.  You can now go into the TV as if it
was raining anytime until Christmas, which is the final day that you can
confront the killer.  However, do note that confronting the killer and
succeeding will cause time to fast-forward to Christmas, so what I recommend
you do is spend as much time as you want until December 22nd, so that you can
experience the most of what this game has to offer.  Everyone has differing
opinions though, so do what you want.

Exam scores are out!  See how you did.

If you got the highest score, you will get a Soma from Ms. Sofue.  Check the
pillow near the TV when you get home to "receive" a Partial Reward from
Nanako.

If you haven't maxed out Marie's Social Link, she will call you today to tell
you she will be outside more often.

Quest 56 is available today.

You can speak with all of your team members today about pursuing the killer.

This dungeon is one of the toughest dungeons you'll face, mainly because it
can get really annoying at times.  Otherwise, it's a great place to catch up
on leveling because for some mysterious reason or another, this is the best
dungeon to level up your characters/Personas.  Take advantage of that.

On the second floor of Magatsu Inaba, you are unable to pass through the doors
that lead to the next portal.  Instead, you're going to have to find a way to
unlock them, or remove the sealing force on the doors.  In order to access
that area, if you remember there was a hole that you passed through in order
to get here, go back to that hole.  You can now jump down that hole to reach
the second half of Magatsu Inaba, Magatsu Mandala.  You have to approach the
sealed doors first in order to jump down the hole, just in case you try to
approach the hole beforehand.

On the 3rd floor of Magatsu Mandala, the killer will engage you in a game that
involves you not entering combat with any Shadows (this includes them running
into you, as well as you running from a fight).  While this game sounds really
silly, if you fail to follow it, the killer warps you back out of Magatsu
Inaba, forcing you to go back.  It's kind of annoying, but thanks to the map
structure, it shouldn't be too hard to do.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
BOSS FIGHT: Chaos Fuzz

Truthfully, there is nothing difficult about this fight except for one thing.
This boss repeatedly summons duplicates of itself.  And it also has a physical
attack, but it's not powerful.

The risk in this battle is that your team is too focused on defeating single
target opponents (which is great), and you spend too much of your time on a
single Chaos Fuzz.  All Chaos Fuzzes, summoned and the original, can summon
more Chaos Fuzzes, which means you're going to have to resort to hitting
every Chaos Fuzz at once.

Thankfully, that's not as hard as it sounds.  Using multi-target Skills will
easily suffice, and attacks such as Agenystra and Deathbound are great if you
are only able to use Physical Skills.  At this point, all your characters
should have some way of hitting multiple targets, and such this fight
shouldn't be too hard.

When I defeated Chaos Fuzz, my team was:

Yu Narukami	Chie Satonaka		Yukiko Amagi		Kanji Tatsumi
Level 88	Level 86		Level 86		Level 86

Personas Used:

Ishtar, Level 77

Mediarahan
Absorb Wind
Spell Master
Megidolaon
Mind Charge
Cool Breeze
Angelic Grace
Maziodyne
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

When you reach the last floor of Magatsu Mandala, you'll fight another boss.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
BOSS FIGHT: Envious Giant

This boss can be tricky.  It uses Tentarafoo to put Panic on your party,
Megidolaon to hit your team with a powerful Almighty attack, and High Counter
to discourage Physical attacks.

The problem with this fight is that it resists magical Skills quite well, so
Physical attacks are quite effective, but risky.  That doesn't mean don't use
them, just be aware that you have a 20% chance of having a character deal a
painful amount of damage to themselves, especially if it's been Power Charged
and boosted by Tarukaja/Matarukaja.

Other than that, the boss isn't terribly threatening.  Throw your best attacks
and remember to heal the Panic effect from your party as soon as you can.

When I defeated Envious Giant, my team was:

Yu Narukami	Chie Satonaka		Yukiko Amagi		Kanji Tatsumi
Level 92	Level 91		Level 91		Level 91

Personas Used:

Trumpeter, Level 74

Debilitate
Ziodyne
Heat Riser
Megidolaon
Mahamaon
Mamudoon
Mind Charge

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Once the fight is over, you can now go back to the second floor of Magatsu
Inaba and unlock the door, gaining access to the killer.

Go back to the second floor of Magatsu Inaba, go through the unsealed doors,
and face the killer.  After a lengthy conversation, it's time to fight.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
BOSS FIGHT: Killer (to avoid spoilers)

Yeah, still not putting names.  Discover for yourself, it's actually really
good.

The killer uses Heat Riser, which boosts their Attack, Defense, and their
Hit/Evasion.  They also use Mudoon, which is a Darkness instant-kill move with
a decent chance of success, a physical attack which is not so threatening at
this point, Evil Smile which inflicts Fear on your entire team, Vorpal Blade
which will hit your entire team with a Physical attack, Maziodyne, which
hits the entire team with Ziodyne, and Magarudyne, which hits the entire team
with Garudyne.  The killer can also use Dekaja/Dekunda to balance out any
status changes you may have placed.  As the battle goes on, Mudoon will also
be used.

It would be helpful to lower the killer's stats, because Heat Riser makes this
battle a lot more dangerous.  Tarunda/Rakunda/Sukunda/Debilitate are all very
handy for doing that job.

Other than that, just get a Persona that isn't weak to Electric/Physical, and
keep the pressure up.

You shouldn't need to bring out your best tricks for this fight, but I would
still heal and restore SP every now and then, or as needed.

When I defeated the Killer, my team was:

Yu Narukami	Chie Satonaka		Yukiko Amagi		Kanji Tatsumi
Level 93	Level 91		Level 91		Level 91

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

After the killer is beaten, another presence manifests itself as Ameno-sagiri,
and in order to remove the fog and save Inaba (and possibly the world), the
team engages Ameno-sagiri.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
BOSS FIGHT: Ameno-sagiri

Like Shadow Mitsuo, Ameno-sagiri gets two turns instead of just one.  Unlike
Shadow Mitsuo, this is really, really bad.  The worst part is, you start off
with the same HP and SP after the fight with the killer, making this almost
like an endurance fight.

Ameno-sagiri uses Agi/Bufu/Zio/Garudyne and their multi-target versions, as 
well as an attack called God's Judgement, which reduces your health in half, 
Agenystra, which deals a lot of physical damage to your entire team from one 
to three times, Quake, which deals Almighty damage to your entire team, 
Bewildering Fog, which makes it immune to everything but it can't attack, 
Tarukaja/Rakukaja/Sukukaja for increased stats, Mind Charge to increase the 
power of its next magical Skill, Dekaja to remove your status buffs, and 
Nebula Oculus, it's signature move that hits your entire team for Almighty 
damage.

There really isn't much in terms of special strategy, since Ameno-sagiri does
not do anything particularly threatening or special.  Nebula Oculus and Quake
only Skill you haven't seen before, and it isn't so bad as long as your health
is at a reasonable level.  Do not use ANY SKILL on Ameno-sagiri while
Bewildering Fog is up, as nothing will work, even status reducers.  He can't
hit you while this is up however, so use this time to heal and re-enhance your
team.

Success in this battle requires pulling out your strongest attacks, and making
sure health and SP are at a consistent level.  Pull out Personas that are able
to resist elements and perhaps Physical as well.  Also pull out Personas that
can use Power/Mind Charge, as well as Mataru/Maraku/Masukukaja, which will
increase your survivability and damage in the fight.

When I defeated Ameno-sagiri, my team was:

Yu Narukami	Chie Satonaka		Yukiko Amagi		Kanji Tatsumi
Level 93	Level 91		Level 91		Level 91

Personas Used:

Trumpeter, Level 74

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

After Ameno-sagiri is defeated, you bring the killer back.  Judgement Social
Link goes up to 9.

If your Hunger Social Link is at 8, and you met with the killer beforehand,a 
conversation with Adachi will occur, and the Social Link will go up to 9.

After seeing the fog leave Inaba, the team celebrates, and the Judgement
Social Link will go up to Rank 10/MAX, letting you fuse Lucifer of the
Judgement Arcana.

Discussion of the end of the case.  A call from Dojima about the Dojima
household able to come home today.  The group comes over for a celebration.
And the girls bake a cake.  Uh oh.

-----------------
Dojima Residence
-----------------

Family is back home!  And the kotatsu is replaced.  Keep picking options.

And the cake is actually good!  What a surprise from the girls.  And a nice
surprise from Teddie.  The doubt from Dojima is great.

And then a discussion of how you are only here until spring.  Thankfully
Yosuke shines and mentions how it's a long while until then.

You get a Christmas Costume from Dojima.

For Persona 4, the game ended here and moved straight to March.  But for
Persona 4 Golden, the game lets us play more!

Love this!  Enjoy the extra content you deserve!

=============================
December 26th (12/26) Monday
=============================

You go straight home after school today to check the Midnight Channel.

Nothing shows obviously.  You solved the case and caught the bad guy!  Hooray!

Yosuke calls just to confirm, and it's the same thing with everyone.  It is
gone.

Go to bed early for today.  Midnight is not early!

Time skips to the end of December.

===============================
December 31st (12/31) Saturday
===============================

You get the Midwinter Outfit today to deal with the cold.  Handy.

You then meet with the men.  I love Yosuke's explanation of what Teddie did.
That is just hilarious.  Then a fuss about kimonos.

And then the girls show up.  Nothing special, and the boys learn they are not
anywhere close to being with any of the girls.

Except for you if you did your Social Links right.

*CUTSCENE*

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!

===========================
January 1st (01/01) Sunday
===========================

-----------------
Dojima Residence
-----------------

You celebrate New Year with the Dojima family.

You can then choose to go to the shrine again with a girl you are in a
relationship with.  Or decline every single one and do nothing.

If you talk to Dojima once you get back, he'll hand you a New Year's envelope
with 30000 Yen inside.

All you can do is sleep today.

===========================
January 2nd (01/02) Monday
===========================

=================
Dojima Residence
=================

You play in the snow with Nanako.  Keep picking options.  And you should get
some relationship points with Nanako.

I'm impressed Dojima can hold that snow with no gloves on.  That must be
painful for someone right out of the hospital.

You can then go outside for New Year's greetings.  You can talk to everyone
you've made Social Links with for New Year greetings.

Also, despite the fact that you have a garden, and the woman who sells
seedlings is right outside your house again, you are unable to plant any new
vegetables.

When you visit the Velvet Room however, Marie is gone!  But Margaret is still
there.  Thankfully, she will pick up Marie's card duties, so you won't have
to worry about losing your card progress.

If your Aeon Social Link is Rank 10/MAX, Margaret will offer to find her for
you.  You can choose whether or not to find her, but I suggest finding her
as it offers absolutely no downsides whatsoever.  Apart from having to go in
another place.  But that's about it.  Margaret will tell you when she has
located Marie, so if you chose to find her, just sit tight and you'll know
when she is found.

You feel stranger than usual, so you go rest today.

============================
January 3rd (01/03) Tuesday
============================

-----------------
Dojima Residence
-----------------

Yosuke and Teddie drop by.  Yosuke discusses the winter break trip.  Keep
picking options.  Dojima and Nanako leave for the hospital to get another
check up.  Teddie opts to move in with you.  He moves in with you no matter
what you say.

You try to sleep, but you collapse.  Oops.

At least Teddie does a decent job at taking care of you.

You'll see a vision of Marie.  Keep picking options.

==============================
January 4th (01/04) Wednesday
==============================

Chie, Yukiko and Yosuke come to visit you.  Yosuke opts to move the trip back,
and Teddie discusses your medical care with Chie.

Time skips to January 6th.

=============================
January 6th (01/06) Thursday
=============================

Rise, Kanji, and Naoto come to visit you today.  Naoto got you some medicine!
And Teddie discusses his methods with the three.

Time skips to January 9th.

===========================
January 9th (01/09) Monday
===========================

You feel all better now thanks to Teddie.  That was nice of him.  I must say
he did a pretty nice job, considering he hasn't been in this world for a long
time.

If you chose to save Marie, Margaret gives you a status update.

=============================
January 10th (01/10) Tuesday
=============================

You're alright!  But you have to go to school...
Wow this game is unforgiving.

Answer "An orange" in class today to get a Knowledge increase.

There is something in your shoe locker today if you did well on your exams.

You can talk to Ms. Kashiwagi on the 1st Floor of Yasogami High to receive
the male Gekkou Uniform if you did well on your exams.

You can also go into the TV today if you wanted to.  There are some quests
that have items you need to get, and there's no harm in going back.

Tonight, Teddie goes digging in the garden and discovers bugs!  Now you
can get more bait for fishing here.

The Shopping Program is back and now offers actual items you can use.

Today's deals are:

1 Auto-Matarukaja and 2 Wasabi Jelly for 49800 Yen
3 Tetracorn and 3 Makaracorn for 9800 Yen

Today marks the start of the day where your team members will ask you to spend
some time with them if their Social Link is at the highest rank.  This will
evolve their Persona and give them their signature skills.  I will make a
review of them after all team members have asked you to give you an opinion
on the new skills and Personas.  It is optional, and Persona 4 players will
note they never needed the upgrades to beat the game.  They do come in handy
however, and some are really worth the extra mile.  If nothing else, the
upgrades grant additional resistances for your Personas, but they still do
not cover a character's weakness.

Yukiko, Kanji, Teddie and Naoto will come to you today for that reason.  You
can talk to them anytime after they ask you.

Rise is available for a scooter ride today.

You can also make lunch for tomorrow!  These lunches are special because
Teddie will now watch as you make the lunch.  If you are successful, he will
be happy.  If you made something barely edible, he will shake his head.  If
you failed, Teddie will fall to the ground.

Lunch is Gyoza.

Rock candy - Throw away
Potato chips - Crunchy Gyoza (Bad)

Kanji is available for a scooter ride today.

This would be the last of the upgrades, so here is a review of each
one and whether they are worth getting.

----------------------
Yosuke: Youthful Wind
----------------------

Effect: Heals the entire team (like Mediarama) and raises their Hit/Evasion
	(like Masukukaja).

Rating: Good

This is really helpful.  Yes, it's not as good as Yukiko's Salvation and
Teddie's Mediarahan, but at this stage in the game, you might find yourself
not needing a full heal, but just a slight bit of health restoration (like
after using Physical Skills).  Also, you may be reluctant to use Masukukaja
because if an attack does hit, you haven't prevented any damage and may end
up dying.

Yosuke's Youthful Wind solves both of those problems and more.  It heals you
up a decent amount and gets your team ready for a fight.  It's not the best
heal, but considering the bonus Masukukaja, it's certainly one of the better
Skills in the game.  If you use Yosuke, definitely get this, but if you don't
use him, it's not something I would go out of my way for.

--------------------
Chie: Dragon Hustle
--------------------

Effect: Increases the team's attack, defense, and hit/evasion (like a Heat
	Riser for the whole team).

Rating: Great

Dragon Hustle is a very good battle Skill to have.  Not only does it give
Chie a way to boost the entire team, it's probably the best Skill to boost
the entire team.  Heat Riser by itself isn't bad, but you're not likely to
find yourself casting it on teammates very often.  On the other hand, Dragon
Hustle takes away that flaw and pretty much sets your team up for their
strongest attack, which, after Dragon Hustle, is either enough to win the
battle or turn the tide of even the toughest battles.

The biggest and most obvious disadvantage however is the extremely high SP
cost.  At 150 SP, Chie is most likely only able to use Dragon Hustle once
per battle, and is probably not using it again without some SP restoration.
It's power comes at a great cost, so unless you're willing to shell out some
SP restoration items, expect Dragon Hustle to be a one-hit wonder.

-----------------------
Yukiko: Burning Petals
-----------------------

Effect: Deals severe Fire damage to all enemies (like a multi-target 
	Ragnarok)

Rating: Good

Yukiko's most powerful Fire Skill, and possibly the best Fire Skill in the
game.  It will hit for powerful Fire damage, and most likely take out any
enemy with Fire as their weakness.

The problem is, it's nothing more than a more powerful version of Maragidyne.
There's nothing bad about that, but there's nothing especially great.  It
goes great with Mind Charge if you happen to have it, but it's something
you can afford to go without, especially since Agidyne will probably be
more SP cost-effective to use in some fights.

---------------------
Kanji: The Man's Way
---------------------

Effect: Inflicts the Dizzy and Knockdown status on all enemies.

Rating: Average

This wasn't as impressive as I first thought it would be, but the idea isn't
outright terrible.  Dizzy and Knockdown are some of the hardest status ailments
to inflict on enemies, and at this stage in the game, you'll run into a lot of
enemies that just have no weakness, and thus no way to gain an All-Out Attack.
Especially against enemies whose weakness you can't target, this is a great
Skill to have, as you can pretty much repeat this Skill as long as it knocked
something down (as it treats the Knockdown as if you had hit their weakness,
regardless of whether they have a weakness or not).  Very useful against
Golden Hands.

The problem is, this is very chance based.  Sometimes it works and sometimes
it doesn't.  There isn't a way to increase the likelihood of the Skill working
except for Kanji's Dizzy Boost, but in my opinion, The Man's Way is not a good
enough reason to keep Dizzy Boost.  You could afford to go without this Skill,
but it has its shining moments.  Too bad it comes at such a late time though,
as this would be much more useful right after getting Kanji.  However, that's 
just my opinion.

------------------------
Rise: Complete Analysis
------------------------

Effect: When analyzing an enemy, you will get all the information about them,
	techniques and all of their strengths/weaknesses, even if you never
	learned through trial-and-error.

Rating: Excellent (or Poor)

And people look at me crazy for saying Rise is my favorite character.  Well,
Full Analysis pretty much takes the cake.  This pretty much takes away the
guessing game from fighting enemies, and is really helpful in the upcoming
dungeons.  Now you won't have to guess what an enemy's weakness is, what
their resistances are, or whether they have the moveset.  Rise automatically
gives you all that information when Analyzing an enemy.  In my opinion, it is
the best Skill upgrade out of your entire team.

Or it can be downright useless.  I'm not the only walkthrough writer who posted
every enemy's strengths/weaknesses, and if you've been reading my/their guides,
you pretty much already know a good chunk of this information even without the
scanning.  Since Rise doesn't need any resistances, all she really gets from
this upgrade is a better appearance and better statistics, which don't help
because Rise never fights.  It's great to have if you haven't Analyzed a lot in
battles, but if you already have all the information, it can be passed up.
It will always help, but not always a lot.

Personally, because it's Rise, I never pass this up. And I always find it useful
even with the guide (because I don't have to keep referencing the dungeon guide
everytime).

----------------------
Teddie: Kamui Miracle
----------------------

Effect: Does something random to either your team, the enemy team, or both.
	Effects include but are not limited to:

	- Healing
	- Inflicting status ailments
	- Knockdowns
	- Restoring SP
	- Full HP and SP restore
	- Damage
	- Nothing happening

Rating: Poor

Teddie's a great combatant, but this just makes him a very bad fighter.  You
never want to put your battles in this game to chance, and that's exactly what
Kamui Miracle does.  To be fair though, no one would think to use this when the
going gets tough, but unless I'm fooling around, I never use Kamui Miracle.
Yes, there are good effects, but there are bad ones as well, and it's very
annoying when it backfires and hits your team, because now you have to clean up
the mess, and this is not something you want to use against enemies with the
Skills to kill you.

With that being said, it doesn't cost a lot of SP to use and won't be so bad
that it is on the level of game-changing.  Use if you would like, but I feel
that this just gives me more reasons to not like Teddie, because I do think
that despite his flaws, he's a great fighter, and Kamui Miracle ruins that 
for him.

-------------------------
Naoto: Shield of Justice
-------------------------

Effect: Protects the party from any attack/Skill one time.  Can be cast again to
	re-apply the protection.

Rating: Great

This is Naoto's shining Skill, and one that I always struggle to make room for
in her skill set.  Despite that, this Skill is worth putting in to her arsenal.
This protects the team from just about ANYTHING negative.  Damage, status 
ailments and even instant-kill Skills are useless against this Skill.  Using 
this in a tough fight could buy you the time you very well need to turn the 
battle around. Using this move against bosses such as the Reaper certainly gives
you a much better advantage than you had before.

The problem is that it is very costly, at 160 SP per usage. The protection also
wears off after a single attack, meaning even a move like Rampage will still
hurt you if you are unfortunate enough to be hit more than once.  It also 
doesn't work against Skills like Stagnant Air or the elemental Breaks, because
those are not classified as negative effects.  Thankfully, it won't block out
status enhancers, so things like Heat Riser, Revolution, and Dragon Hustle are
not wasted here. Overall this is a very good ability, but very easy to trigger
and more costly than Dragon Hustle.

*CUTSCENE*

I have never tried skiing or snowboarding, but it looks fun.  It's also really
funny seeing Kanji and Naoto.  I also think Teddie passed out for a bit after
he jumped.  That or I'm reading the eye signs wrong.

Chie's thirst for meat is amazing.  Didn't know sole was a fish for a while.

Then it's ghost stories!!!!  Anyone find Yosuke's story familiar?  Naoto gives
a slight hint to where you've heard it before.  When it's your turn, keep
picking options, but it's fun to pick the different options.

And a fun way to end the night.

=============================
February 12th (02/12) Sunday
=============================

More skiing and snowboarding.  And Rise's logic comes through, but I'm very
surprised Chie thinks it's something amazing.  I thought it was pretty obvious
considering the cutscene.

You are then hanging out with the first years.  You can keep picking options,
and some options get you relationship points, but honestly, after exams, they
stopped having any influence so it doesn't really matter.

READ ON ONLY IF YOU CHOSE TO SAVE MARIE!!!
READ ON ONLY IF YOU CHOSE TO SAVE MARIE!!!
READ ON ONLY IF YOU CHOSE TO SAVE MARIE!!!
READ ON ONLY IF YOU CHOSE TO SAVE MARIE!!!
READ ON ONLY IF YOU CHOSE TO SAVE MARIE!!!

READ ON ONLY IF YOU CHOSE TO SAVE MARIE!!!
READ ON ONLY IF YOU CHOSE TO SAVE MARIE!!!
READ ON ONLY IF YOU CHOSE TO SAVE MARIE!!!
READ ON ONLY IF YOU CHOSE TO SAVE MARIE!!!
READ ON ONLY IF YOU CHOSE TO SAVE MARIE!!!

Otherwise what I say here makes absolutely no sense.

You can now pick someone to go skiing with you.  Anyone works really.

Pick whatever option you want, you get lost anyway.

You then find a deserted cabin with the person/people you were with.  After
some talking and exploring, you are found by everyone else.  If you are with a
girl, being together alone will be referenced.

*CUTSCENE*

Oh wow, it's Margaret, outside the Velvet Room.  After some funny talks,
you introduce her to the team, and then get briefed by Margaret in this
place, the Hollow Forest.  This is the optional dungeon you have unlocked.

You only have 1 day to go rescue Marie.  You have no other time to do this,
so you either save her tomorrow or you give up on it.  Keep in mind you never
had to rescue Marie in the first place, and as such you can pass this up for
a normal day.

Keep picking options and make your decisions tomorrow.

You have access to the Velvet Room and a Save Point here.  You can also check
the TV in the back to go shopping or go back to the Junes TV to pick up items
and fight in other dungeons before you save Marie.

When you first walk in, you notice that ALL of your items are gone.  Your
weapons, your armor, and even your money.  Instead, you have to find different
items to make up for your inventory, as well as the different equipment.  It
helps to earn a lot of Chest Keys as that is where most of your equipment will
come from.  If you leave the Hollow Forest though, everything comes back, so
don't freak out about losing everything just yet.

Also, after your first fight, your SP is cut in half.  This continues every
battle, so your SP is halved everytime.  Also, this half SP effect works after
all your HP and SP restoration effects work.  For example:

Let's say you have Cool Breeze, Rise's Vigor Song, and 400 SP for the purposes
of this example.

You use up 200 SP in one fight, leaving you with only 200 SP left.

However, thanks to Cool Breeze you get 8% of that back, so you now have 232 SP
to use. (8% of 400 is 32.)

Rise's Vigor Song gets you another 10%, so 10% of 400 is 40, and now you have
272 SP.

Now the Hollow Forest Half SP effect comes in, halving that to 136 SP.

In the case of having Victory Cry (great ability), you would be restored to
400 SP, Rise's Vigor Song has no use (it won't put you over 400 SP), and the
Half SP effect knocks you back to 200 SP every time.

To make up for this, there are some methods to use in the Hollow Forest.

1.  You can find SP restoring items.  Use these only if desperate, because
    the amount healed back is still cut in half.
2.  You can find equipment to give you back some SP per turn in battle.  These
    are much more useful, and you can theoretically wait in battle for your SP
    to come back, but I personally wouldn't recommend it.  The amounts given
    depend on the item.  And at a high enough level, the SP gain should be
    just enough anyway.
3.  Use physical attacks.  Kanji comes up with this idea, but it makes sense.
    None of the enemies are particularly strong or threatening.  The only 
    problem is you don't have your typical weapons or armor, and that does 
    influence the damage you can deal and take.  Some enemies also have
    resistances to Physical that would greatly hurt an all-physical run.
    However, you can always escape or use physical attacks until you have
    just enough SP.
4.  Avoid fighting.  This is easier on some levels than others, but at this
    stage you should be strong enough to not want to fight here (and this is
    a really bad place to get levels anyway).
5.  Leave the dungeon and heal with the fox/your items and come back.  With
    the Sacred Branch item, it works like a Goho-M in this dungeon.  You can
    leave, top up your SP, and go back into the same floor.  I don't recommend
    this as it can get costly and it is inefficient, but if you have no other
    way, then use this.

Fighting effectively will help a lot in this dungeon.  Many opponents are weak
to Light/Darkness, and if you have Rise's Full Analysis skill, it will be easy
to check what elements are useful on these opponents, letting you use only the
necessary skills, and saving a lot of guess-and-check work.  You can also
check my Enemies list if you don't have the Full Analysis skill.

If you have Rise's Vigor Song, then you never will find yourself with no SP.  
And truthfully, the enemies here aren't so tough that you'll need as much as 
you think you do.

Really though, I wouldn't fight much in this dungeon.  At this stage, you're
really just wanting to reach the ending, and this dungeon is long.  Fight
as little as you can, and you should be alright.

When you get to the upper right corner of Memories of Sorrow, you will fight
a mini-boss fight (there is only one entrance, so you can't miss it).

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
BOSS FIGHT: Gorgeous King

This boss starts off the fight by summoning enemies onto the battlefield.
Gorgeous King is weak to Physical, which is good news for those running low on
SP.  He resists all the elemental Skills, and is immune to Light/Darkness.

He just continues to summon enemies, so do your best to chain together any
All-Out Attacks that you can.  The only issue in this battle is that you can
not have enough SP to deal with the oncoming summons, in which case your best
bet is to split your team's focus into having 2 members generate SP while 2
others start hitting the enemies on the field.  After a while, Gorgeous King
starts using Tetrakarn on himself, but it's not so bad that you can't remove
it.  At this stage in the game, I wouldn't be afraid of attacking the barrier
to remove it; you just don't have other options at this point, and the
chances of having Tetra Break are not likely.  Gorgeous King also uses Poison
Mist and Makajam, but again, just like Tetrakarn, it shouldn't be that bad at 
this point in the game.

Here's an interesting tip that you may run into: Despite the boss being
immune to Light/Darkness, he can still be taken out by Chie's Follow-Up Attack
and/or her Cavalry Attack.

When I defeated Gorgeous King, my team was:

At Memories of Anger, you'll run into Marie.  She leaves after a talk, so
keep on going.

At the lower left corner of Memories of Anger, you'll face another mini-boss.
Hate fighting more than one.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
BOSS FIGHT: Heaven's Giant

It starts off with Stagnant Air and it nullifies every element except Physical
which it resists.  It can use Balzac to put Rage on a team member, Ziodyne and
Agidyne as elemental attacks, Mustard Bomb to deal Physical damage and inflict
Enervation on everyone, and Navas Nebula which will do the same thing as
Mustard Bomb but inflicts Exhaustion instead.  It also has a passive High 
Counter Skill to reflect any physical damage.  The worst part is that it gets
two turns, so this gets really annoying really fast.

You have a number of options in this fight.  First, you can fight this boss
with only physical attacks/Physical Skills.  Despite the resistances, this
isn't as crazy as it sounds.  If you have Power Charge and/or Matarukaja, that
makes things a lot easier and faster.  All the more so if you have Debilitate
or Rakunda to lower Heaven Giant's Defense.

If you really need to use your elemental Skills to win (and there's nothing
wrong with that), you may have run into an item/items in the Hollow Forest
called Fire/Ice/Lightning/Wind Breaker.  This takes away an opponent's
resistance to an element (similar to the Break Skills), whether it is Repel,
Drain, Null or Resist.  It only lasts a few turns, so make sure to reapply
when the effect disappears, but they are quite useful in this fight.

Due to Stagnant Air and your lowered defenses, Heaven Giant might come hitting
hard and you will find yourself with status effects.  To make matters worse,
High Counter could put a dent in the all-physical route.  However, unlike the
last time you encountered this situation, your characters are (hopefully)
strong enough to withstand the damage, and even survive an unfortunate Power
Charged physical attack reflection.  The boss will go down with a few Charged
attacks, which is also why the risk is definitely worth the reward here.

Salvation is very useful here, as well as any other status healing skills.
All status effects disappear after a while, but it is better to heal them as
soon as you can.

When I defeated Heaven's Giant, my team was:

Yu Narukami	Chie Satonaka		Yukiko Amagi		Kanji Tatsumi

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

On the last floor, Memories of Meeting, proceed onwards to face Marie.  She 
refuses to listen and fights you.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
BOSS FIGHT: Marie

I like this boss fight music.  Very nice.

This isn't hard.  Marie uses Hot Lightning which hits everyone with an 
Electric Attack and may knock them down, Megidolaon which hits everyone with a
strong Almighty attack, Shell of Denial which repels everything but Physical,
and Alienation Wall which reflects everything back at you if you attack Marie.

You can't really win this fight, so just throw some simple attacks, and the
moment Shell of Denial comes up, just Guard, because Marie won't throw any
other attack at you and just give up fighting.

When I defeated Marie, my team was:

Yu Narukami	Chie Satonaka		Yukiko Amagi		Kanji Tatsumi
Level 94	Level 92		Level 92		Level 93

Personas Used:

Odin, Level 81

Maziodyne
Magarudyne
Bufudyne
Megidolaon

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Marie then stops and you convince her of another way to save her.  She then
trusts you and you engage in your proposed solution.

You have to love Naoto's logic sometimes.  It's straight and powerful.

Now comes the only way to save Marie, beating down the being inside her.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
BOSS FIGHT: Kusumi-no-Okami

This fight is tricky, because if you Analyze Kusumi-no-Okami, it repels
EVERYTHING.  Even Almighty.  So how do you hurt this boss?

I have found using the Fire/Ice/Lightning/Wind Breaker items work just fine.
And at this point, all team members (except for Chie) should have their
strongest elemental Skills to throw.  If there is another way to win, I would
like to know, but this is the only way I know that works as of now.

Kusumi-no-Okami starts the fight with Run Amok, a Physical attack which hits
your entire team 1-3 times, but who it hits is random.  After that, she uses
Mabufudyne which by now you're familiar with, Draining Fog which absorbs your
team's SP, but deals some damage to Marie herself, and Shake Off which hits
your entire team with a Physical attack.

The only real problem in this fight is attempting to find a way to damage
Kusumi-no-Okami.  Once you do, this isn't as hard as it seems.  Using
Debilitate/Tarunda/Rakunda/Sukunda will make this battle go a lot faster, as
well as make sure you don't get hurt too bad by the onslaught of attacks.

Don't use multi-target Skills as it will use too much SP.  Draining Fog can
also drain enough of your SP that makes sure you can't use as many Skills.
Fortunately, if you find some items in the Hollow Forest, you can recharge
enough SP per turn to offset Draining Fog.

Just make sure you can keep hitting Kusumi-no-Okami, and then this battle
should end relatively quickly.

When I defeated Kusumi-no-Okami, my team was:

Yu Narukami	Chie Satonaka		Yukiko Amagi		Kanji Tatsumi
Level 94	Level 92		Level 92		Level 93

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

At the end of the fight, watch as Marie uses a specific line in a completely
amusing way.

As you leave, your team enjoys saving Marie and has a snowball fight.

*CUTSCENE*

Great.  Can't believe Yosuke and Teddie tried doing that though.

After that go home and rest.

==============================
February 14th (02/14) Tuesday
==============================

Valentine's Day!!  And you can choose to spend it with the girls you are in a
relationship with.

Exam results are today!  But I'm not so sure they matter this time.

You'll spend today in some sort of Valentine celebration.  Depending on your
options, you'll experience a different scene.

This is the only part of the game where it is actually very cruel if you have
more than one girlfriend.  Despite how cool it was to have multiple in the
first place.  Prepare for the heartbreaking lines from the girls, but hey,
pick your favorite.  They all happen to love you in the end anyway.

Love how Kanji continues to be clueless.

If you chose to save Marie, you will get chocolate from her too.

And you get some chocolate from Nanako.  First one's okay.  The next one is
unbelievable.

===============================
February 15th (02/15) Thursday
===============================

--------------
Yasogami High
--------------

You meet with Yukiko and Chie, and then Yosuke.  After some talking, you all
head to class.  Time will then pass.

In between the pass, you will see your friends as they hung out with each
other until the day you leave.

============================
March 19th (03/19) Thursday
============================

A look back before you leave.  Nothing happens today.

==========================
March 20th (03/20) Friday
==========================

This is the day before you leave.  You can't do any other Social Links past
this date.

Dojima has you go outside and talk to your friends.  You will talk to everyone
you had Rank 10/MAX Social Links with, and they will all be available to talk
to.

You can find Naoto, Ayane/Yumi, and Ai at Yasogami High School.  They will be
in the places that you normally meet (Ayane/Yumi will be in their respective
club rooms).

You can find Yosuke and/or Teddie at Junes.

You can find Yukiko, Sayoko and Eri at the South Central Shopping District
Bus Stop.

You can find Chie, Margaret, Shu, Rise, Kanji, Marie, and Naoki along the
Shopping District.

You can find Kou and Daisuke in Aiya.

You can find the fox in the Shrine.

You can find Hisano near the Riverbank.

You can find Dojima and Nanako back at the Dojima Residence.

Don't worry about meeting Adachi if his Social Link was maxed out, that will
come later.

Now you have the option of going back to your house to prepare for tomorrow!
Choose "Yes" for obvious reasons.

=============================
March 21st (03/21) Wednesday
=============================

And you're off!  You and your friends bid farewell one last time, and you get
to meet with some of your best friends before you leave.  Then you board the
train.

*CUTSCENE*

Much better than the last cutscene.  Well, that is the END OF PERSONA 4 GOLDEN
for you!  Congratulations!  You have seen the Normal Ending of Persona 4
Golden.

You have the option of creating a New Game Plus and moving over
all your data to another new game.  This means:

-Your Persona Compendium retains its completion rate, as well as the data
 on the Personas you have registered.
-You get to keep key Social Link items that you received.
-Daidara's stock will transfer over to the next game.
-Your current amount of money will transfer over to the next game.
-Your Personality stats will carry over as well.

Try Persona 4 Golden again, now that you have better knowledge of what to
expect, as well as new possibilities waiting to be explored!

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

But, what if you picked "No"?

I still have no idea how people knew this was possible to this day, but I
credit the people who wrote FAQs for this.

If you pick "No" you regain control of your character.  Go to the Junes Food
Court.

You'll meet with your friends and meet with them one more time.  You'll then
read a message from the killer that came from Adachi.

If you got the Hunger Social Link to Rank 9, Adachi adds a slight bit more and
your Hunger Social Link progresses to Rank 10/MAX.  If it did not increase to
9, you may have missed talking to the killer by yourself after you discovered
who they were.  It is optional, but necessary for a Rank 10/MAX Hunger Social
Link.  You can then fuse Magatsu-Izanagi of the Hunger Arcana.

Now go to the Riverbank and talk to Nanako and Dojima there.  You will then
discuss who you met on the first day you came, and Nanako will reference the
gas station attendant.

Now go to the Velvet Room and talk to Igor.  He will discuss how you have
found what appears to be another truth, and creates the Orb of Sight for you,
which repels one lie.  Margaret (and if she is here, Marie) will talk a bit
about the situation.

It will begin to rain.  Now talk to the gas station attendant.

Keep picking the options that match the questions you want to ask.  You should
know which options to pick.

After some questions, you talk to the Gas Station Attendant.  If you saved
Marie, there is some additional dialogue, but you find the main point soon.

Turns out the attendant was really Izanami.  Oh dear.  If you remembered the
story from Gekkoukan High, things just took on an interesting turn.

Enter the TV, and you can now access Yomotsu Hirasaka.  After a talk with the
team, you all resolve to fight her.

Yosuke says what, in my opinion,  is one of the best (if not the best) lines
in the series.  Actually, everyone has really good lines here, but I liked
Yosuke's the most.  He may have been an idiot in the beginning, but he has
really grown here.

Also, you can no longer go back into town.  If you need to pick up something,
you can still use the exit to reach Daidara and Shiroku, but nothing more.

Pick your best team and go forward.

Hardest dungeon in the game.  And surprisingly enough, not the best place to
train.  There are many enemies in here that are strong, and could actually
make really good mini-boss fights.  You'll have to start using some of the
tricks in your bag to win these fights, but nothing too complicated.

What most people tend to forget is that you can leave at any point and stock
back up on items before fighting Izanami.  Great way to make money and buy
better weapons, armors, and accessories.  If you haven't been able to fight
the Reaper (more on that in the Optional Fights section of the guide), this
is probably a smart option and could make the final fight a bit easier.

Pace yourself and don't get frustrated.  Also, try not to train.  I highly
doubt you will need to at this point, because if you are above level 80, you
can beat the final boss.  But to be fair though, if you are struggling, go
back and train, because you will find that the enemies become increasingly
difficult, and Izanami is no cake walk.  Not impossible to beat, but not so
easy that you can easily breeze through.

On the 3rd Floor, you encounter a mini-boss.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
BOSS FIGHT: Neo Minotaur

This fight can be challenging because Neo Minotaur hits very hard.  But other
than a regular physical attack and Rampage, there are no other moves.

This is a boss you can easily take down by equipping a Physical Repel/Null
Persona and auto-attacking.  To make things quicker, prep your team against
Physical attacks with Tetrakarn/Physical Mirror/Tetracorn, boost your team
with Heat Riser/Matarukaja and/or Power/Mind Charge and release your strongest
attacks. Debilitate/Rakunda will speed things up considerably.

This boss should fall really quickly to an enhanced assault.

When I defeated Neo Minotaur, my team was:

Yu Narukami	Chie Satonaka		Yukiko Amagi		Kanji Tatsumi
Level 94	Level 93		Level 93		Level 93

Personas Used:

Helel, Level 93

Megidolaon
Maragidyne
Repel Wind
Magarudyne
Mabufudyne
Maziodyne
Mind Charge
Salvation
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

On the 6th Floor, you encounter yet another mini-boss,

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
BOSS FIGHT: Sleeping Table

This boss focuses on killing off your team as soon as it can.  It has Mahamaon
for single instant kills, and the Evil Smile/Ghastly Wail combination to 
instantly kill Feared teammates.  There is also Maragidyne and Megidolaon to 
hit you in case instant kills aren't working.

Again, shouldn't be too difficult.  This boss will fall really quickly to
powerful attacks, and that should be no problem at this stage of the game.

When I defeated Sleeping Table, my team was:

Yu Narukami	Chie Satonaka		Yukiko Amagi		Kanji Tatsumi
Level 95	Level 93		Level 93		Level 94

Personas Used:

Helel, Level 93

Megidolaon
Maragidyne
Repel Wind
Magarudyne

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

On the 9th Floor, you will face Izanami with the team.

*CUTSCENE*

What a way to start a battle.  Get ready.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
BOSS FIGHT: Izanami

This is the final boss fight.  Izanami is not exactly a pushover, though if
your characters are a high level, this isn't that challenging.

Also note the battle music.  Intense stuff.

Izanami uses Maziodyne, Magarudyne, Mabufudyne and Megidolaon repeatedly.  
She also uses Mind Charge to boost the power of her attacks.

After some point in the fight however, you are unable to hurt her and she can
hurt you, kind of like Shadow Rise was.  At this point I would just Guard, or
keep fighting.  Just don't waste your SP.

When I defeated Izanami, my team was:

Yu Narukami	Chie Satonaka		Yukiko Amagi		Kanji Tatsumi
Level 96	Level 94		Level 94		Level 94

Personas Used:

Lucifer, Level 98

Spell Master
Brave Blade
Mind Charge
Megidolaon
Power Charge
Repel Light
Mahamaon
Mamudoon
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

And then you note this battle has no end.  Igor's words come to mind however,
and the Orb of Sight begins working.  It doesn't kill Izanami right away, but
it does show something new, and the fight continues:

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
BOSS FIGHT: Izanami-no-Okami

Remember the story you were told in Gekkoukan High?  It starts making more
sense here.  As a result, the true appearance of Izanami is somewhat
disgusting.

Izanami uses more techniques this time.  She now has two turns instead of one.
She now has Mind Charge, Marakunda, Maziodyne, Fury of Yasogami, a Physical
attack that hits everyone, Kuro Ikazuchi, an Almighty Skill that hits all
your entire party, Masukunda, Galgalim Eyes, Summons to Yomi, which will kill
everyone with a status effect, and Oho Ikazuchi, which is just like Kuro
Ikazuchi.  She can also hit your team with Agi/Bufu/Garu/Ziodyne individually.

There's not much to say in terms of Skills, as pretty much everything she
throws at you doesn't do anything you haven't seen before.  She does deal a
lot of damage, but that's really the only tricky part of the fight.  As
always, be wary of Mind Charged Skills.  She also now gets two turns instead
of one, so that definitely makes things harder, but even then, you should be
used to dealing with it.

Skills like Debilitate will help greatly.  Power/Mind Charged Skills will
definitely be a great help as they will take a lot of Izanami's health out.
If possible, make sure the Persona that uses the Charge has a high Strength
or Magic statistic to deal the most damage possible.

Matarukaja, Masukukaja, and Marakukaja will help a lot in this fight too.
It will take a while, and gaining every advantage you can get will pay off
in the long run.  If you have Chie, Dragon Hustle helps a lot.  If not,
Yosuke/Kanji/Teddie have the respective boosting Skills to support the team.

This fight ends when Izanami-no-Okami starts using Thousand Curses, which is
an unavoidable instant kill Skill.  You can't dodge it, and it consumes your
entire party.

Eventually, you'll see your main character unconscious in a dream world.  Here
he is visited by each Social Link he has maxed out to give him strength.  The
collective voices work to give you the most powerful Persona in the game,
Izanagi-no-Okami.  You then re-enter the fight with Izanami-no-Okami.

Well, it's not really a fight.  Just wait until it's your turn and use the
only Skill available to you, Myriad Truths.

This is enough to subdue Izanami and end the fight.

When I defeated Izanami-no-okami, my team was:

Yu Narukami	Chie Satonaka		Yukiko Amagi		Kanji Tatsumi
Level 96	Level 94		Level 94		Level 94

Personas Used:

Lucifer, Level 98

Spell Master
Brave Blade
Mind Charge

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
After that, Izanami agrees to stop doing what she is doing and leaves.

If you saved Marie, there is an extra scene after the fight with her.

You will then get to see the TV World without the fog.

*CUTSCENE*

Nothing mind-boggling, but a beautiful scene nonetheless.

And so ends the final fight, with a line that wraps up pretty much the entire
game.

Now you leave tomorrow.

=============================
March 21st (03/21) Wednesday
=============================

------------------
Yasoinaba Station
------------------

You now say your farewells to the team, Nanako and Dojima, and the rest of
your friends from school.  If you saved Marie, there is a short mention of
her, but she never shows.

Truthfully, there is no difference between this ending and the ending if you
didn't fight Izanami, except this ending will unlock an extra scene at the end
of the credits.  However, this is the True Ending of Persona 4 Golden, fitting
the search for truth.

*CUTSCENE*

Enjoy the ending credits and cutscene!  I hope you enjoyed Persona 4 Golden! I
never get sick of playing this game, especially after the new additions in
Persona 4 Golden.  I hope you enjoyed this game just as much as I did.

If you saved Marie, there is an additional extension to the ending.  I won't
spoil it for you, so if you want to see it, save Marie and finish the game!

You have the option of creating a New Game Plus and moving over
all your data to another new game.  This means:

-Your Persona Compendium retains its completion rate, as well as the data
 on the Personas you have registered.
-You get to keep key Social Link items that you received.
-Daidara's stock will transfer over to the next game.
-Your current amount of money will transfer over to the next game.
-Your Personality stats will carry over as well.

Try Persona 4 Golden again, now that you have better knowledge of what to
expect, as well as new possibilities waiting to be explored!

*****************
Optional Fights:
*****************

At some points during the game, you may have wondered things such as "What if
I had opened that chest that Rise/Teddie warned you against opening?", or what
if you went back and fought the optional bosses in those dungeons.  Although
I mentioned these fights before, I'll go over the strategies here.

================
Dungeon Fights:
================

---------------------------
Twisted Shopping District:
---------------------------

This isn't really a fight, but the rewards are slightly similar.  Go back here
at any time to claim a Skill Spanner for Yosuke.

-----------------
Yukiko's Castle:
-----------------

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
BOSS FIGHT: Contrarian King

This fight can be extremely difficult, mainly because the boss uses physical
attacks.  It sounds a lot like the Avenger Knight battle, but with one giant
exception; he uses Rampage, which hits your entire team once or twice with 
physical attacks.  This doesn't sound like a bad thing at first, but at your
level and armor, his physical attacks will deal a great deal of damage.

The battle starts off with the Contrarian King using Red Wall on himself.  This
is a trap, because it makes you believe he is weak to Fire, but in truth he
absorbs it.  Despite the fact that you can damage him with Fire spells then, I
would still find another way to hurt him, because the last thing you want to do
in a fight is heal your enemies, especially a boss.  He also nullifies Wind.

Other than Red Wall, he uses Hysterical Slap and Kill Rush, attacks that hit
multiple times, with Hysterical Slap having the chance to inflict the Rage
status.  If you are lucky, he will never use Rampage, but that only happened to
me once, although I adequately prepared for it anyway.

Get the best armors you can, and if possible, Tarunda and Sukunda to reduce the
threat the King poses.  Rakunda will potentially help you, but keep in mind it
will not affect the King's attack potential, so use it only if you can unload
a good amount of damage really quickly.  If you have Diamond Shields/Assault
Signals, those would be really handy in making your attacks do more damage
while you take less.

Also remember to re-apply Tarunda/Sukunda/Rakunda every two turns, because at
the third turn it runs out, and thankfully in this game you can re-apply those
stat reducers to increase the duration by another three turns.

A Persona that resists physical attacks would help a lot (like Slime), because
the boss uses only physical attacks (Red Wall only happens once).  In fact, if
you happened to have a Persona that nullifies physical attacks, you have pretty
much won the fight, since the King can't do anything but hit you.  At this
point in the game, it may not be likely, but it's just an idea.

Keep in mind this boss is OPTIONAL.  While I do like clearing him out as soon
as I can, if the battle is too tough for you at this point, you can always
leave it and come back later to finish it.  Especially at about mid-way through
the game, where you are probably strong enough where the King can't do much
against you.

When I defeated Contrarian King, I had a team of:

Yu Narukami	Yosuke Hanamura		Chie Satonaka		Yukiko Amagi
Level 17	Level 17		Level 17		Level 17

Personas Used:

Omoikane, Level 7

Zio
Sukunda
Tarunda

Eligor, Level 14

Poison Skewer
Agi
Bash
Dia
Maragi
Arm Chopper
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

As a reward you gain the Suzaku Feather for Yukiko, which is a pretty decent
weapon that grants +50 SP to Yukiko.  Handy, and you're not likely to find
yourself ditching it anytime soon.  You also get a Courage increase.

BOSS FIGHT: Intolerant Officer

This is an easier fight than with the Contrarian King.  To start, this boss is
weak to Electric, so Zio/Zionga/Mazio are greatly appreciated.  If you brought
Kanji along, you might be able to have 2 All-Out Attacks in one fight if you
have Electric Skills too.

He uses Bufula/Garula if you have someone weak to Ice/Wind, Single Shot as a 
physical attack, and Poison Arrow, which can inflict Poison on you and deal 
physical damage.  He will hit quite hard in this fight, so don't let your guard
down even you have the upper hand.

Use as many Electric attacks as you can, keep your health up and if you bring
Yukiko to the fight, have her Guard constantly.  This fight won't be too hard
as long as you don't get overconfident, because he will hit hard, but will
stick to physical attacks a lot.  As long as Yukiko is Guarding, you can still
put down the beatdown with 3 teammates.

If you happen to have trouble with weaknesses, Magic Mirrors can provide a
temporary relief from the powerful Bufula/Garula and even deal a great amount
of damage to Intolerant Officer.

Again, this is optional so if you are struggling (but I do not believe you
would have much of a problem against this boss), you can always come back later
when you are stronger.

When I defeated Intolerant Officer, my team was:

Yu Narukami	Chie Satonaka		Yukiko Amagi		Kanji Tatsumi
Level 32	Level 26		Level 31		Level 31

Personas Used:

Narcissus, Level 27

Foolish Whisper
Zio
Magaru
Mabufu
Rakunda
Anima Freeze
Old One
Null Fire

Note: The only reason Chie is a low level was because I was debating going
through the game with [Yu, Yosuke, Yukiko, Kanji], but then I wanted to start
using [Yu, Chie, Yukiko, Kanji] from then on.
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

For winning, you'll get a Courage increase and you can find an Iron Plate for
Kanji if you search the stage after the fight.

BOSS FIGHT: Momentary Child

Momentary Child is a bit like Intolerant Officer; it has a weakness to Ice
Skills.

This boss uses Assault Dive, a powerful Physical attack, Rebellion to
increase it's critical hit rate, Rampage, which hits your entire
team 1-3 times with physical attacks, Tarukaja to boost its attack,
Herculean Strike, which hits your entire team with a physical attack, and
Deathbound, which is a much stronger physical attack that hits the entire
team.

Your only issue in this fight is that Momentary Child can deal a good
amount of damage with just Physical attacks, and you can feel the damage
even as you guard.  The battle will take a while, so it's not something
to take lightly.

Physical resistant Personas are greatly appreciated, as well as Personas
that can use Ice skills.  Skills like Rakunda and Tarunda are very helpful,
as well as Dekaja to prevent Momentary Child from dealing heavy damage.

When I defeated Momentary Child, my team was:

Yu Narukami	Chie Satonaka		Yukiko Amagi		Kanji Tatsumi
Level 45	Level 43		Level 45		Level 45

Personas Used:

Samael, Level 41

Mudoon
Matarunda

Mabufu

You will get a Courage increase for winning, and searching behind the
stage will get you a Bear Claw for Teddie.

BOSS FIGHT: Escapist Soldier

Escapist Soldier looks intimidating, but as long as you don't throw physical
attacks at it, it should be perfectly manageable.

Escapist Soldier uses Blade of Fury, which hits your team with a physical
attack multiple times, Foul Breath, which increases the likelihood of status
ailments on a team member, Mudoon, a Darkness Skill that has a medium chance of
killing a team member, and that's about it.

Blade of Fury can be a problem because it will hit your entire team multiple
times, so Guarding won't help too much.

That's really the only issue in this fight.  Escapist Soldier resists Physical,
so try not to use any physical attacks unless they have been Power Charged.
Status reducers work well here, such as Rakunda, Sukunda and Tarunda.  Personas
that resist, nullify or reflect Physical would be great as well.

When I defeated Escapist Soldier, my team was:

Yu Narukami	chie Satonaka		Yukiko Amagi		Kanji Tatsumi
Level 58	Level 58		Level 58		Level 58

Personas Used:

Rangda, Level 55

Maragion

You'll get a Courage increase for winning, and if you search the skulls next

BOSS FIGHT: Extreme Vessel

Here's an interesting surprise, this boss is weak to Wind.  I suggest you
abuse that as much as possible.

It uses God Hand, Virus Wave, Mind Charge, Power Charge, and Maziodyne.  You
have seen Virus Wave, Mind Charge, Power Charge and Maziodyne before.  God's
Hand is something like Brave Blade; a Physical attack that will inflict severe
damage on one target.  And it hurts.  Especially if charged.

Thankfully, abusing its Wind weakness shouldn't be too hard.  Finding a
Persona that resists/nullifies/drains/repels Electric and/or Physical attacks
shouldn't be too hard at this point in the game.  Reducing its defense and
attack should help greatly in this fight, as well as its hit/evasion.

Remember to heal accordingly though, a Power Charged God Hand will probably
kill a party member who isn't guarded.

When I defeated Extreme Vessel, my team was:

Yu Narukami	Chie Satonaka		Yukiko Amagi		Kanji Tatsumi

Once the fight is over, you gain a Courage boost, and you can inspect the
operating table to find the Algernon for Naoto.

BOSS FIGHT: Lost Okina

Lost Okina uses Mustard Bomb, a Physical attack that hits everybody, Dekunda
to take off status reducers you have put on it, Agidyne, Garudyne, Bufudyne
and Ziodyne, powerful single-target elemental Skills, and that's it.

Lost Okina absorbs Ice and nullifies Physical, so refrain from using those 
Skills.  Those are the only things to watch out for, so switch Personas
that specialize in those.

Throw your strongest attacks at it, and make sure that you don't use
Makarakarn, because a reflected Ice attack just makes the battle drag on
unnecessarily.

I didn't fight this boss with my new team, but I have no doubt that the boss
was still beatable even with my team at 10 levels higher than the last
optional boss fight.  In case you really want to know what that would look
like, it is:

Yu Narukami	Chie Satonaka		Yukiko Amagi		Kanji Tatsumi
Level 85	Level 82		Level 82		Level 83
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

At the end of the fight, you can find a Chakra Ring near the bottom of the
stairwell on the left side.  You might need to search a little, as it is hard
to find, but it is worth a small search.

Reaper
-------

Ever wondered what those weird moaning noises were every couple of floors in
a dungeon?  Ever wondered why Teddie/Rise told you not to open a chest?  Ever
wondered what was in a chest that had a strange feeling?  This is the reason.
And it's a pretty good one too.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
BOSS FIGHT: Reaper

This boss can be found at any dungeon in the game, at any time of the game,
and in any Red Chest in the game.  It used to be in Persona 4 you could only
encounter this boss on your second playthrough, but you can now encounter this
boss on your first playthrough.

It inhabits any Red Chest, but has to be found on a floor in the following
circumstances:

1. There must be some dark moan at some point in the floor.  This indicates
   the Reaper can appear on the floor.
2. There must be a Red Chest available.  You can't find the Reaper in a
   Golden Chest, so this difference is noteworthy.
3. You must not have encountered any other fight or opened any other chest
   once you have heard the moan.  It is great for those who don't want to
   encounter the Reaper, but for those wanting to fight it, it is quite
   annoying.  The reason for this is that opening the wrong chest or getting
   into a fight will make the moan disappear, meaning the Reaper has left.

If all those conditions have been satisfied and you have approached the right
Red Chest, instead of opening it immediately, you will pause first and a
message will come up noting something strange about the chest.  Then Teddie
or Rise (depending on the stage of the game) will say it is really bad and
not to open it, and then ask if you really do want to open it.  If you are
unprepared, say "No", otherwise say "Yes" and open the chest to fight.

The Reaper is a very high level (around 75-80) and hits hard and fast.  Not
only does it have two turns instead of one, it can remove resistances with
the elemental Breaks, has the high-level elemental Skills (ie. Agidyne) and
hits the team with Mahamaon and Mamudoon quite a bit.  It also has Mind
Charge, multi-target elemental Skills (ie. Maragidyne) and Megidolaon.  It
also has no weaknesses, but you can knock it down.

The main problem in fighting this boss is that you are too low-level and you
happen upon the chest the Reaper is in, and you decide to open it.  The boss
will terribly punish unprepared players by simply showing you are unprepared,
either instantly killing your team with instant kill spells or hitting your
entire team with Skills they can't handle, the list goes on.  The boss is no
pushover at the lower levels.

So why would you fight this boss?  Because upon beating it, it drops the best
weapons, armor, and accessory in the game.  It will drop each character's best
weapon (they must be in the fight against the Reaper to receive it though),
and once each character has their weapon, it drops the best armor in the game.
Once you get enough armor for each member, it drops the Omnipotent Orb, an
accessory that negates all damage except Almighty.  Considering the rarity of
Almighty attacks in the game, it almost lets you walk into any fight without
fear of damage.

To start off, you should be around Level 65+ when attempting to fight the boss
and have each member of your team having a MAX Social Link.  Homunculus and
Scapegoat Eggplant items help a lot, and having a Persona with Power/Mind
Charge (depending on your choice of offense) is greatly recommended.  Bring
your best weapons, a reasonable armor, and some good accessories that either
boost damage dealt or reduce damage taken.  Skills such as Debilitate are
very welcome.  Skills such as Matarukaja/Marakukaja/Masukukaja are very
useful and should be used on a regular basis.  Personas that are immune to
Light and Darkness are very useful, and Personas not weak to anything are
good too.

You can fight the Reaper with any team you would like.  I personally always
have Yukiko and Kanji on my team, and then either Chie/Yosuke depending on
the circumstances.  Naoto is great for the fight because she repels Light
and Darkness and has no weaknesses, and I sometimes use her.  You need either
Teddie or Yukiko for this fight, and they should be able to use Diarahan or
Mediarahan, and Recarm/Samarecarm.  You need a healer in this fight, and I
would not fight without one personally.  However, I rarely use Teddie, and
Naoto sometimes makes the cut.  Not that I think they're useless, but I
sometimes forget to use Naoto and I don't like using Teddie.

At the time you fight the boss, I greatly recommend having Debilitate, as it 
makes fights a lot easier.  You don't NEED it to win, but if you have 
difficulty, try using it.  Otherwise, having Tarunda/Rakunda/Sukunda
works too, but no character will learn those moves, and it would leave your
main character on constant stat reduction duty throughout the fight, leaving
you with only 3 characters fighting (never a smart move against a boss who
hits everyone.)  If you don't know where to get it, the Judgement Arcana
Trumpeter (who can be fused in fusion of 4+ demons) has the Debilitate card,
letting you grab it at Chagall Cafe, give it to Marie, and have a free flow
of the skill (for a fee of course).

To start off, I would cast Power/Mind Charge, Mataru/Maraku/Masuku-kaja at the
start of the fight.  The next turn you get, (cast Debilitate if you have it,
and then) start the beatdown.  Do not stop your assault on this boss, unless
you have to heal/recover SP.  Those instant-kill moves tend to work fairly
well for this boss, which means your team will start dying a lot.  Keep
enhancing your attacks and hitting the boss with them.  Heal up as necessary,
and revive as necessary.  Things can go wrong at all times, so never get too
overconfident.

If you have Rise's Social Link at the highest Rank, it will help a lot in this
fight.  She can enhance AND use both Power/Mind Charge on your party, making
damage dealing a lot easier.  She can also shield the team from a multi-target
Skill you aren't ready for, and even the instant kill spells.  Even better,
if your main character falls too early, she can get him back into the fight.

If you can keep your damage high and make this battle go as quickly as
possible, then the Reaper should fall with no problem.

Again, if you don't have Debilitate, it's not a problem.  I've actually
beaten the game and the Reaper several times without it.  But it makes things 
a lot easier, especially on single target opponents like bosses.
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

---------
Margaret
---------

You can also fight Margaret from the Velvet Room.  However, it should be
noted that you can only do this on the second playthrough of the game.  As for
why this is, I have no idea.

In order to start this, you need to have fought all the secret bosses in each
dungeon before March 20th.  You also need a MAX Social Link with Margaret
(it's the Empress Social Link) before that date as well.  Once you have gained
the Orb of Sight from Igor, with those conditions fulfilled, revisit the
Velvet Room.  Margaret will notice you and then propose a fight.  She will
give you an item and tell you she is waiting at Heaven's End.  The item she
gives you says the same thing.

What this means is you need to go back to the top floor of Heaven to fight
her.  This would be easy, but the game resets your progress in Heaven, forcing
you to fight your way back up to the top of Heaven.  You will see Margaret
standing where the suspect was.  Go up to her, and she will ask if you are
ready or need time to prepare.  If you need time to prepare, just select the
option and you'll just be taken out of conversation to make last minute
preparations (she won't warp you away, and you can leave and come back
to the top floor instantly now).

When you're ready, say so, and the fight begins.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
BOSS FIGHT: Margaret

This will be an incredibly difficult and frustrating fight if you don't know
what you're doing.  Fortunately, if you leveled your entire party's Social 
Links, it is a bit easier.  If you have Rise's maxed, it is a LOT easier.

Margaret hits hard, and she gets two turns in the place of one.  You will be
hit by powerful attacks and skills, so prepare accordingly.

She uses Physical attacks, the strongest elemental Skills available (and by
this, I don't mean Agi/Bufu/Zio/Garu-dyne, I mean Ragnarok, Niflheim, Panta
Rhei and Thunder Reign, the most powerful single-target elemental Skills in
the entire game), Jihad/Cocytus Pain/Divine Vaccuum/Prominence which are
pretty much Thunder Reign/Niflheim/Panta Rhei/Ragnarok that hits your entire
team, Mind Charge, Megidolaon, Diarahan (yes, you read that right, 
the full-heal spell),  Morning Star, which is a much more powerful Almighty 
Skill than Megidolaon, Power Charge, and Hassou Tobi, a Physical attack that
hits your entire team with 8 light Physical attacks.

Try not to have Personas that can repel elements or nullifies a single
element.  This sounds self-destructive, but if you do have that, (ie. no one
in your team is weak to Ice), Margaret will hit everyone with the multi-target
Skill that your team isn't weak to, (ie. she uses Cocytus Pain instead of 
Niflheim), which is going to hurt.  Having everyone weak to something makes 
sure that Margaret uses her multi-target spells as little as possible.  The
same applies to your teammates as well, which is why Naoto may not be the
best choice for this fight if you're intending on taking the least amount
of damage.

Margaret tends to follow a specific pattern.  While she is near full health,
she uses primarily normal physical attacks.  Once you've knocked her health
down to about 90%, she then uses, in this order:

Ragnarok
Niflheim
Thunder Reign
Panta Rhei
Mind Charge
Megidolaon

And then repeats.

If she hits a team member with their weakness, she either uses the multi-
target version of the spell or she continues down the order with her Extra
Turn.  If she uses the multi-target version, she quickly follows the order
again.  If she continues, it messes up the order slightly.

The reason why this is important is because Margaret has different resistances
at different times.  You can check them with Rise's Full Analysis/Third Eye,
because she will absorb the element she has just used, and when Mind Charging,
she nulls everything.  This also applies for Physical, so don't think you're
totally safe with Physical.

Once she gets down to 50% of her health, she uses Morning Star to hit you all,
and then she uses Diarahan to heal.

Yes, you read that right.  She heals herself back to 100% health.

So you will have to do that entire process again.  Thankfully, if you were
able to get her to that point without too much trouble, the rest of the fight
will be no different.  Using a Soma here helps even the odds by restoring your
team to full condition.  Yes, a Soma is a drastic item, but there's no better
time to use it than a battle like this.  Thankfully she only uses Diarahan
once, or else this fight couldn't be beaten.

As she gets weaker, she will start using Power Charge and Hassou Tobi.  Hassou
Tobi is only found on Yoshitsune, so it's not strange if you've never seen it,
but it hits your entire team with 8 Physical attacks.  They're not strong
attacks, but with Power Charge and 8 Physical attacks, it's as if someone used
Bash on you 8 times at once.  It's weak individually, but if it stacks, it
hurts.  A lot.

Matarukaja and Power/Mind Charge help a lot in this fight.  Chie and Kanji can
both deal great amounts of damage to Margaret with just Physical attacks.
Chie's Dragon Hustle is great for boosting your team (though this is best
saved for the final push since Chie can likely only use it once).  
Yukiko and Teddie can be dealing elemental Skill damage quite well too, and
can heal the team in case of dire emergency.  Yosuke's Youthful Wind provides 
a good way to heal your team while also boosting your team's evasion.  Naoto's 
Shield of Justice will help in this fight, but make sure you use it well, 
because it's just as expensive as Chie's Dragon Hustle, but just as useful.

Keep up the pressure, and you should stand triumphant in this match.  This is
probably the hardest, if not one of the hardest, fights in Persona 4 Golden,
so do feel proud for beating Margaret.
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

At the end of the fight, Margaret will talk a bit more (Persona 3 fans may
know what Margaret refers to here) and give you the Spiral Bookmark item to
prove you have beaten her.  Not sure what it does, but hey, it serves as proof
and if you can beat Margaret, then no other fight in Persona 4 Golden should
faze you.

****************************
Social Links: (Incomplete!)
****************************

Probably the most important aspect of Persona 4 Golden, next to combat.
This is where most of your Persona's power will come from, as well as some 
special fusions if you raise the Social Links to their highest ranks.  You 
will also get an item that represents that person's faith in you.

For your party, it means two things.  Not only does it lead to stronger
Personas, but it increases your party's capabilities in battle.  Not only can
they do additional things, but they can also learn new Skills that they could
not do in Persona 4.  Take advantage of this, because it's incredibly useful.
And the abilities given aren't half bad.

The way I have written these Links is that I put the Rank increases in order,
as well as the choices you can make in the conversations.  These choices do
factor in the assumption that you have the matching Persona with the Social
Link in question, so do keep in mind I have no idea what not having a Persona
does for the Social Link.  But, it is my personal belief that you shouldn't be
working on a Social Link without a matching Persona to begin with.  You get
more bonuses and can complete the Link sooner, so there isn't really a reason
not to.

If you are stuck on what to do on a Social Link and don't have a guide handy,
then the general rule of thumb is not to be a jerk and be a good friend.  Also
some people just want you to agree with them, so that's a good clue too.

Also, I don't fill out how many points you get when you rank up from Rank 9
to Rank 10/MAX.  While you can get points sometimes, to me it seems redundant
because you never really need relationship points after that Rank Up, so I
don't put any there.

there isn't much of a point telling you what option does what.

**************************
Quest Guide: (Incomplete)
**************************

Quests are either a really important part of the game or absolutely useless
portion of the game.  There is no real benefit to doing the quests other than
the rewards they give, and some of them, while offering really good rewards,
are more troublesome than others to do, such as item retrieval quests.  Some
quests build off of each other, and thus are only available if you complete the
pre-requisite quests beforehand.

All in all, there is no trophy to obtain by doing quests, and there is no
special reward for completing all of them either.  Do as many as you wish.
The Hermit Social Link can only be completed through quests however, and may
be the only quests I recommend doing.

*******************************************************************************
Quest 1 - Who's the Riddle Master?

Found by talking to the student with an afro on the 3rd floor.

You need to answer some questions.  The answers are (in order:)

"Group A"
""They're the top six flag colors"

You get 3 Chest Keys

*******************************************************************************
Quest 2 - The Girl on the Rooftop

Found by talking to the student near the window in Class 2-2.

To finish this quest, there is a girl on the Yasogami High Roof that is
near the girl who tells the weather, right behind the grates.  Talk to
her about her hobbies over a series of days to get enough information to
complete the quest.

You get Goho-M

*******************************************************************************

dog again.  Talk to it gently, and it will run away again.  On the next day,
go back to the same spot and talk to the dog again.  Thankfully, now it is
just hungry.  Give it some meat (I gave it a Steak Skewer from Souzai Daigaku

get from ordering from Tanaka and he will leave.  Come back the next day to
the same spot to learn it didn't work, and you will get your sticker back.
He needs a sticker that is popular with kids, so talk to Nanako when you get

Understanding in order to pass.  After that, she leaves, so come back the

Come back the next day to learn it didn't work as well as you planned, but

In order to start this, go to the Samegawa Flood Plain and talk to the man
who has a quest bubble above his head (that didn't appear there before).

and talk with the cat there.  Don't play with the cat, but pet it.  Once
you pet the cat, get out of the conversation and talk to it again.  This
will let you bring the man to the cat.  The man will run from the cat.

The next day, talk to the man at the same spot and he will ask for a cute
fish.  This is referring to a Red Goldfish.  Give him one (either by
fishing with Bread Crumbs or ordering on Tanaka's Shopping Program).  He
will take it and leave.  Come back the next day to find out he is no longer
afraid of cats, and the quest is done.

Plain trash can.  Once there, talk to her to learn she lost her wallet,
and it might be near the Riverbank.  Search around the Riverbank until you
can press the X button (should be a unique spot).  You will get the Round
Wallet.  Give it to the woman to learn that it is not her wallet, and she
may have left it near the Shrine.

Go to the North Central Shopping District and search near the Shrine
Entrance and you should find a Square Wallet.  Bring that back to the woman
and she should mention it is her wallet.  With that the quest is complete.

Quest 15 - The Shichiri Beach Guardian

In order to get this quest, you need to first go to Shichiri Beach and try
to fish.  You can't, so don't worry about wasting time.  You learn you need
a special rod to fish at the sea, so talk to the Old Man at the Riverbank
who gave you the Fishing Rod.  He will tell you he can give you the rod,
but you will need to prove your worth as a fisherman, and the only way
to do that is to catch the Samegawa Guardian fish.  You will need the
Inaba Jewel Beetle bait to catch the Guardian, and it must be raining
(or in December/January) in order for the Guardian to appear.

Once you catch the Guardian, talk to the Old Man and he should give you the
Deep-Sea Rod.  Now you can go to the Sea and fish.  There are a lot of
new fish here, but you need the Genji Beetle bait (and it must be raining
or December/January) for the Sea Guardian to appear.  Once you catch the
Sea Guardian, bring it back to the old man and the quest is done.

Additional Ending:
-------------------

It is highly recommended you beat the game at least once before searching for
this ending.

In order to do this, you will need your Jester Social Link at Rank 6, and you
must be on December 5th (12/05).

When you choose Adachi, you will get the option to remove him from suspicion.
It is the option "Don't tell friends, protect Adachi"

The game will fast-foward to March 19th (03/19) and the murder will go unsolved
as per the other bad endings.  This time though, there is a twist.

You will approach Adachi about the murders.  There is a specific set of options
that you must choose in order to get this additional ending.  I don't know why,
but it doesn't happen automatically.  And you must get this right; otherwise you
will have to sit through an entire ending sequence with no ending.

------------------------------
Midnight Channel Trivia Quiz:
------------------------------

In the TV Listings, there is a mini-game which lets you participate in a quiz
show.  This will test you on the trivia of Persona 4 Golden, and is actually
quite a good test of trivia knowledge.  See how you do!  They range from the
easily memorable to the easily forgettable.  Some are really obvious, some
just require some good memory and item usage, and some are just never
considered when playing the game.  I've played Persona 4 AND Persona 4 Golden
a lot of times, and some of these questions still stump me.

Your competitors are your fellow teammates: Yosuke, Chie and Yukiko.  And
they remain your only competitors.  I really wanted to be able to switch
with Kanji, Rise and Naoto, but oh well, have to be glad there was this
game in the first place.

These rounds aren't hard to win.  I've never seen a competitor give any real
sort of competition.  In fact, I've actually won a round without answering
any questions.  You can dominate all the questions, and if you are really
worried, answering half of the questions will guarantee a victory.

But I also have answers for those that just want to dominate the quiz.

********************
Credits and Thanks:
********************

While a lot of this information was obtained through trial and error, there
are still some credits I will need to make for where I got some information.

------------------------------------------------------------
Thanks to Atlus for producing such fine games such as this:  
------------------------------------------------------------
I liked the SMT series a lot when I played my first SMT game "Shin Megami 
Tensei: Devil Survivor" and I hope they continue producing such games.
------------------------------
Thanks to FAQ writer Zoelius:
------------------------------
I never referenced this author's works throughout the walkthrough explicitly, 
but I ran a lot of my inferences and knowledge from what I remembered reading 
from Zoelius, especially the Social Link section.  I am sorry I cannot credit 
some sources with 100% accuracy, as to where I took some information is still 
somewhat unclear in my mind.  To avoid plagarism though, and since I know I 
did take quite a bit from the author in question,  I will credit accordingly, 
and update sources when I revise.

(Fun fact: I had also used Zoelius's guide from Persona 4 a lot, so I credit 
that author for helping me through the game.)
---------------------
Thanks to rldelancy:
---------------------
Helped me correct some incorrect information with some of the extra boss
fights.  Very grateful for that.
------------------------------------------------------------
Thanks to Paulo Antunes/KazemaruX7 (and additional person):
------------------------------------------------------------
For telling me there was a Chakra Ring in Heaven that I missed out after the
extra boss fight.  It's really easy to miss, so thank you for that.
For the person whose name I am not putting without hearing back from him/her,
thank you for telling me where I could find it in Heaven, and also brought up
the Chakra Ring. 
--------------------
Thanks to GameFaqs:
--------------------
For having the site to host all the FAQs that I had used over the years, and
eventually inspired me to write my own.  Also borrowed the copyright statement
from their website.
-------------------------------
And thanks to you, the reader.
-------------------------------
I hope reading this FAQ/Walkthrough was not the most challenging thing you had
to do and that it helped you as you played.  Feedback is well appreciated and
I would love to hear from readers.

That is all I can think of as of current writing.  This list will grow as
I obtain more information and start revising.

_______________________________________________________________________________
A short mention if I may:

IF YOU THINK I HAVE FORGOTTEN TO MENTION YOU IN THE CREDITS, PLEASE DO NOT
ACCUSE ME OF PLAGARISM OUTRIGHT!  PLEASE EMAIL ME FIRST AND WE CAN TALK ABOUT
THIS!!!!

It is my most sincere apology if I missed you.  I did not mean it and I will
credit you accordingly.  Your emotions may be well directed towards me, but you
will find that you will reach a simpler conclusion if you are calm and willing
to be civil with me.  I will also treat you with such civility, apologize, and
have you written down the next chance I get.

However, I would ask that you be reasonable in your requests.  All authors have
the same constraints, limitations, and tools to work with.  Some are better
than others, and some styles may look better in general (ie. borders).  Yes,
if you have borders that look like mine, it may look suspicious, but I ask that
you be reasonable in that with only a limited amount of characters, this was
bound to happen with more than one person.  But if you do feel there is a
problem, please inform me first, and I will be more than happy to fix the
problems (ie. if I really did copy your format by accident, I will change
the format, apologize to you, and credit you).  I would prefer to solve things
pleasantly, but do not mind getting dirty if I must.
_______________________________________________________________________________

I sure hoped this helped you.  Thank you for reading!  Now scroll back up for
the information!  Please, please, please if you have any comments, feedback,
and/or suggestions, email me at gravesight@live.com with Persona 4 Golden in
the subject line.  I welcome constructive feedback, and only constructive
