Judgement

The Judgement Arcana (審判?) is a recurring arcana in the Persona series.

OverviewEdit

The Judgement Arcana, in tarot, is associated with realizing one's calling, gaining a deep understanding of life, and a feeling of acceptance and absolution.

In gameplay, the Judgement Arcana is commonly associated with a balance of Light and Darkness. Figures of the Judgment Arcana are usually related to Judgment Day myths, or are gods tied directly to the judgment of humankind.

Personas of the Judgement Arcana are well-aware, quite intelligent and view the world with infinite possibilities. Most powerful when combining their intuition with their smarts, their thought process is among the most vast and realistic.

Although the traditional British spelling of "judgement" is considered less common than the American spelling of "judgment" today, "Judgement" (capitalized as a proper name) is exclusively applied while referencing to the tarot arcana.

Megami Ibunroku PersonaEdit

The player can guarantee a fusion accident resulting in a Judgement Arcana persona by starting from a "hard reset" (as in, not already mid-game and loading a save or selecting "Return to Title") and performing a White Fusion after taking exactly 656 steps in an area where no enemies will attack, such as the Mikage Sun Mall.

The Judgement Arcana is represented by Eriko Kirishima.

Persona 3Edit

The protagonist gains access to the Judgement Arcana near the end of the game and it symbolizes the protagonists' actions and decisions through an awareness of himself and others. Personas of the Judgement Arcana are demons associated with the Law alignment.

In Persona 3, the Judgement Arcana Social Link can only be initiated after the protagonist chooses not to kill Ryoji Mochizuki, which allows SEES the opportunity to confront Nyx at the promised place on January 31st.

The Judgement Arcana increases as the protagonist ascends the final Block of Tartarus, Adamah. Upon completing the Social Link, the protagonist gains access to the Ultimate Form of the Judgement Arcana, Messiah, "the savior." Messiah is fused using Orpheus and Thanatos. It can also be obtained from Shuffle Time in the top level of Tartarus.

Persona 4Edit

The Judgement Arcana Social Link is represented by the Seekers of Truth, in which the Social Link can only be forged should the protagonist make the correct decisions on Dec 3rd, unlocking the Normal Ending instead of triggering the Bad Ending. The Judgement Arcana powers up when the Fool Arcana is maxed therefore the Seekers slowly find out the true culprit of the murder cases within the Midnight Channel, and at one point, the protagonist is supposed to deduce the true culprit. Making the wrong deduction three times triggers the Bad Ending.

Should the protagonist be able to point out the real culprit, the Judgement Arcana will continue to power up. The Judgement Arcana automatically maxes out once the Alliance defeats the true culprit, and upon learning the truth, the Judgement Arcana bestows its ultimate form, Lucifer the Rebel King of Hell.
