Why has there been removal of the Symbolism sections from the Shadow pages? They were interesting, and now as far as I can see there's a bit of a delete/restore war going on with them. Maybe there needs to be clarification about why this is? I can understand that the symbolism is up-for-interpretation, but I don't see that as reason to just remove them entirely.

They were removed around this decision iirc. Symbolism tends to run more along the lines of speculation and that's contrary to the wiki's purpose. If official sources (such as artbook commentaries, etc.) were provided, I'm sure they would be welcome. However, since most symbolism we had at the time was inference-driven and heavily debatable, it was decided to remove them. --Zettaizetsubou (talk) 03:34, October 21, 2015 (UTC)
Nah I disagree with this. It's pretty obvious that a lot of the symbols used in the shadow fights were intentional and a lot of it directly derives from the meanings and symbols depicted in the tarot arcanas. It's vital insight on the characters and why they act the way they do. In that case we might as well erase all the explanations for the main tarot arcana pages and the symbolism on the P3 bosses because those are subjective as well.  Paper-Scrap (talk) 20:29, December 22, 2015 (UTC)
