Hanged Man

The Hanged Man Arcana (刑死者?, or 吊された男?), often shortened to just the "Hanged", is a recurring Arcana in the Persona series.

OverviewEdit

"The Arcana is the means by which all is revealed...
In the face of disaster lies the opportunity for renewal.
"
—Nyx Avatar, Persona 3

Portrayed as a man hanging upside-down from one leg with his other leg crossing it, forming a "4"; the Hanged Man Arcana is associated with self-sacrifice for the sake of enlightenment, the bindings that makes one free, paradoxes and hanging between heaven and earth. In Tarot readings, this card's appearance can be seen as an advice to take the time necessary to reflect over one's upcoming actions.

Personas of the Hanged Man Arcana are commonly Personas excelling in survivability. Hanged Man Personas are typically mythological figures that exist between two different forces, or find themselves in transition. They are also sometimes martyr figures.

Hanged Man characters are sometimes self-sacrificial, but are more often notable for being caught between two different extremes, parties or stages in life.

The Hanged Man Arcana Social Link is represented by Maiko, an elementary school student. The Protagonist can find her at Naganaki Shrine, and upon meeting her, she requests the Protagonist to buy her Takoyaki. After buying her Takoyaki, Maiko would then request the Protagonist to bring her something to drink, in which the Protagonist must then purchase the Soft Drink Mad Bull, available only in the Dorm. Upon completing the prerequisites, Maiko would then create the Hanged Man Arcana Social Link with the Protagonist.

Through the Protagonist's interaction with Maiko, he helps her in easing her dilemma of facing the divorce of her parents. The Hanged Man Arcana is also one of the few Arcana which are connected to the other Social Links; Should the Protagonist advance the Hanged Man Arcana Social Link to a certain point, the Sun Arcana Social Link will be available.

Completing the Social Link bestows the Protagonist the ultimate form of the Hanged Man Arcana, Attis, "the god of rebirth."
