The Fortune Arcana (運命, Unmei), also known formally as the Wheel of Fortune (運命の輪, Unmei no Wa), is a recurring Arcana in the Persona series.


"The Arcana is the means by which all is revealed...
Alongside time exists fate, the bearer of cruelty.
—Nyx Avatar, Persona 3

Portrayed as a wheel with different animals wearing wealthy and beggarly clothes up and down the wheel, the Fortune Arcana symbolizes Fate and varying luck, fortunes and opportunities. What goes up will go down, what goes down will go up.

The Fortune Arcana Social Link is represented by Naoto Shirogane in Persona 4. The Social Link is available to be created after October 20, however, the Protagonist must first max-out his "Knowledge" and "Courage" status parameters before creating the Social Link.

The Social Link can be created after the Protagonist talks to a suspicious looking person in the North-side of the Shopping Street in Yaosinaba, where he obtains a letter to be sent to Naoto. After receiving the letter, the Protagonist must then return to Yasogami High School and speak to Naoto, initiating the Social Link. In the events of the Fortune Arcana Social Link, the Protagonist teams up with Naoto to investigate a challenge given to the Shirogane family by a "Phantom Thief".

Leveling the Fortune Arcana up to Lv. 3 allows Naoto to learn her distinct follow-up move, Ultra Trigger, where Naoto fires powerful shots with her gun upon all enemies with chances of inflicting 'Down' or 'Dizzy' status. However, the Protagonist must have struck down a target first.
