Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 4
Konohana Sakuya is Yukiko Amagi's initial Persona in Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 4 and represents the Priestess arcana. Yukiko acquires her after facing her Shadow in the TV World. Konohana Sakuya grants Yukiko access to fire and curative spells and is strong against fire, but weak to ice-element attacks. According to the Persona 4 Visual Data art book, the Persona's appearance was based on that of a cheerleader.
If the player manages to max out Yukiko's Social Link, Konohana Sakuya evolves and becomes Amaterasu.
Persona 4 Arena
Konohana Sakuya also appears in Persona 4 Arena, once again as Yukiko's Persona. In the fighting game format, she has many of the same powers as she does in the original Persona 4 RPG. When Yukiko fights, the HUD displays a special indicator related to the strength of her fire magic. The value of the indicator can be increased by using Fire Boost.
