This is an idea of mine that I wanted to bring out. So, I wanted to know what Persona protagonists would win in a free-for-all. Now, I pretty much should know somewhat of Persona 1 and 2 so bear with me please.
Naoya Todo: Obviously it should be obvious he's the weakest of the bunch but still strong nonetheless. He fought Pandora, who basically turned the school into a dungeon(correct me if I'm wrong). So basically, at best, he can use real guns unlike Joker's which are basically toy guns. He's weak to rifle, but none of the protagonists have. He drains Nuclear, if one of the protagonists are gonna try and cast and Nuke-based attack. The only problems is he's weak to Electrical damage, and Izanagi has that. Also, they can use Wild Card Personas, but we're mainly gonna talk about base and Ultimate Personas. He has Spin Kick which is good I guess. Hieroglyphen is probably considered the weakest Almighty Attack in my opinion.
Tatsuya Suou: One of the strongest I should say, he defeated Nyarlathotep with Maya and the rest of the Eternal Punishment cast. So obviously we're going to be using his version from Eternal Punishment. He's only weak to water and ice and none of the protagonists have that(again, correct me if I'm wrong). Of course, we shouldn't be letting him use Pain of Remembering, because that's kind of outside help. The only powerful attacks he does have are Nova Cyther and Heat Kaiser. I'm wondering if he has Nova Kaiser still. And if he has, then it should make the other protagonists vulnerable. He also nullies Nuclear.
Makoto Yuki: If you thought Tatsuya was strong, Makoto is a goddamn killing machine and here's why. So basically, he has some great things that are going on. He has Messiah, which has Salvation, in which it fully heals him along with the fact it cures status aliments. He's only weak to Dark. resists Fire, Wind, Electricity, and Ice. He also sealed Nyx, which is basically death. Dude also has fusion spells, Infinity gives him invulnerability. And Armageddon is pretty self-explanatory.
Yu Narukami: He's probably the second weakest Persona protagonist, because all the other protagonists have accomplished bigger things than him, but his Persona is generally good. Izanagi-no-Okami has great things such as resisting Physical, Fire, Electricity, Wind, and Ice. He has Mind Charge and Angelic Grace, not to mention Fire, Wind, Elec, and Ice Amp. He also has Myriad Truths which banishes the falsehood of an enemy.
Ren Amamiya: Another strong Persona protagonist, he planned heists with the other Phantom Thieves. Not to mention, he more directly defeats Yaldabaoth, who is close to YHVH in Shin Megami Tensei. Satanael resists Gun, Physical, Fire, Electricity, Wind, Ice, Psychic, Nuclear. Another thing is he has Survival Trick, which allows Ren to barely survive an insta-kill attack. He also has Heat Riser, which raises all stats. Also has Cosmic Flare which is probably the strongest Nuclear attack. Sinful Shell, is Satanael's most powerful attack, it's basically a big bullet that pierced through Yaldabaoth's head, so it's basically very powerful.
Let's see who gets eliminated.
Naoya: Like I said, not the strongest in the group, not even Hieroglyphen is gonna save him.
Yu: Despite having a Persona with a good move pull and great stats, it's like what Fither said. "Not even knowing what he's doing." He can resist any type of element except Almighty, Light, AND Darkness.
Tatsuya Suou: He may nullify Nuclear, but that doesn't mean he's vulnerable to other elements. And even with Nova Kaiser, Ren has Survival Trick like I said.
Ren Amamiya: He was very close but there's something holding him back, and that's something that he doesn't have.
The winner is: Makoto Yuki. Makoto like I said is the strongest in general, he even has the Universe Arcana, and Fusion Spells, so obviously he would be the winner of this battle.
