MC saying Persona name.

#1 Posted by Knave (548 posts) -

Sometimes when you attack a monster by using a spell they are weak against, the MC says the Persona name, and gets a close up of his eyes. Is this completely random, or is there any way to trigger this every time? I like when he does that.

I think it's random.

Yeah I think it's random. I like it better in Persona 3 though because the MC is voiced by the same guy who plays Yosuke, which makes it way more awesome.

I think it only happens when you get a crit. or hit a weakness but even then it's still random.

It happens when one of the monsters/shadows is weak to the spell you cast on them. for him it is pretty much random

Came in expecting some sort of Master of Ceremonies calling out Personas.

Mad random. Usually on crit though.

Pretty sure he doesn't do it for most persona, just some of the more important ones.

Well, in P4, Johnny Yong Bosch voiced the MC and Tohru Adachi. How's that for foreshadowing, huh?

In P3P, the female protagonist is voiced by Rise.

Actually, he'll do it for all of them. He has a line recorded for each one. If you rip the audio from the game you can listen to each one.

Just like how in P3 Yuri Lowenthal voiced the MC and Pharos and Ryoji.

when i read the title i thought of a dude yelling PERSONAAAAAAA over a dj set

It's when he attacks the shadow with something it's weak against.

#21 Posted by TheMustacheHero (6655 posts) -

I think it happens if the spell is it's weakness AND it crits.

#22 Posted by endaround (2145 posts) -

The name call out is random; the eye shot is when you hit a weakness.  And yeah every single persona is named

No, it's random. I don't even think a spell that an enemy was weak to could crit.

I don't have any sources (any longer), but this is what I remember from playing Persona 4 and watching the Endurance Run.

Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeexactly.

@TheMustacheHero: Is the onus not on you to provide proof as you were the one bringing forth the claim initially?
#28 Posted by TheMustacheHero (6655 posts) -
@FluxWaveZ: It isn't. Because I said "I think" and you said "No, this is how it is."

Some of you guys clearly didn't read my first post.

I can vouch for him:
 
 He's right.
