Design[edit | edit source]
Persona 4[edit | edit source]
The glasses made for the Investigation Team, more often than not, complement them in some way, be it their personality or their respective "color." Additionally, all of the glasses have SMPTE color bars on the side of the frame, following the television motif. All lenses are lightly tinted, and are not entirely transparent.
- The protagonist, being a blank slate for the player, has a simple gray pair of rectangular glasses, with the fewest of embellishments.
- Yosuke Hanamura's glasses are square, in a vibrant orange.
- Chie Satonaka's glasses are oval, in a bright yellow, reminiscent of her initial Persona, Tomoe. They are also the thickest out of the lot, implying towards her toughness.
- Yukiko Amagi's glasses, which are the only pair in the game to be half-rimmed, are thin and red. In contrast to Chie's, they could be seen as elegant and dainty.
- Kanji Tatsumi's glasses, as he is perceived to be a rough and tumble "biker", are subsequently black sunglasses. As opposed to covering his eyes, his glasses, like Rise's, rests on the bridge of his nose instead.
- Rise Kujikawa, despite being in a strictly supportive role, has pink, oblong glasses.
- Naoto Shirogane's glasses are a light blue, as that color could be used to denote either gender. They are also the second thinnest, next to Yukiko's.

Profile[edit | edit source]
Persona 4[edit | edit source]
The fog in the Midnight Channel is extremely thick and anything within it normally cannot be seen with normal human eyes. Teddie creates glasses to pass the time he is alone in the Midnight Channel. The glasses he makes has the special property of being able to see through the fog. Teddie states that he does not need a pair himself, as his eyes have contact lenses sewn in. He also created a pair of horn-rimmed joke glasses with swirly lens, attached eyebrows, a large plastic nose, and a bushy mustache — a possible reference to Groucho Marx's famous novelty disguise. Teddie himself admitted the glasses were a mistake, as he used the wrong type of lens to create it, but it still functions normally like any other pair he makes. Teddie makes a pair of glasses whenever a new member joins the Investigation Team.
Later in the story, the fog of the Midnight Channel begins to seep in to the real world. Though the fog is just as oppressive to people's sight in the real world as it is in the Midnight Channel, the Investigation Team discovers that their glasses still work in clearing the fog from their vision in the real world.
