Full Moon Operations are the major and main turn of events in the Persona 3 series. Full Moon Operations occur once a month during every full moon. In this event, one or two unusually strong shadows will appear. Also, during this day, the Protagonist or Female Protagonist can't do anything after school, or evening. He/she must go back to the dorm. These battles have a significant standard level. If the full moon drops at Sundays or holidays, the Protagonist or Female Protagonist must stay at the dorms.

TriviaEdit

  • The full moon on December 2 is not meant for battle. The same applies to the full moon on December 31.
  • The players are free during December 2, December 31 and January 31st, even though the three of them fall on the full moon.
  • On Full Moon operations, the protagonist will default to "Good" status, regardless of his/her previous status.
  • The Greater Shadow, Magician, is the only Shadow that the players don't fight with. Magician is killed in an anime cutscene by Death.
  • The battle leading up to and with the Arcana Priestess is the only one that has a time limit: 8 minutes.
  • Nyx Avatar can shift through multiple Arcanas. It has been shown to shift from Fool through Death.
  • Although full moons always occurred once a month, 2 full moons fall in December. This is known as a blue moon. This is actually not an uncommon event in reality.
