Types of Unknown PowersEdit
Persona 2: Eternal PunishmentEdit
Unknown Powers are special skills that are unlocked once the Persona gets a Mutation saying that an "Unknown ability [has been] awakened". Once this occurs, when the Persona-user's HP goes below 1/8th, takes over 3/4 of their health in damage, or dies, the Persona will do a certain type of Unknown Power randomly. The effect will also differ if the compatibility between the Persona and its user is better or not. Every Persona has a different kind of Unknown Power out of 6 different kinds, and cannot be changed.
