Below is a list of Skills present in Persona 4. Underlined Skills are unique to one or maybe two Personas and cannot be transferred to, or inherited by, other Personas.

Italicized Skills are exclusive to Persona 4 Golden, specifically to the second Persona evolutions that the party members can get during the winter if spoken with after their Social Links have been maxed.

In Persona 4 Golden, skills may be acquired via Skill Cards, which can be gained either by spending time at the Chagall Café with the appropriate Persona equipped, or via Shuffle Time. The number in (parentheses) indicates the minimum "tier" of a Suit of Swords card found in Shuffle Time that is needed for a Skill Card to drop.

Enemy-only Skills

Skill Japanese Effect
Last Resort Deals medium to heavy Almighty damage to all combatants, depending on the exact Last Resort skill used.

In a debug setting, Shield of Justice can negate the negative impact of the move for all party members, including if a party member had cast Last Resort themselves. Self casting of this move can be survived when you get to high enough levels.

Spirit Leech 超吸魔, Chō kyūma Drains 100 SP from a target.
Wind of Oblivion Shadow Yosuke's unique move. Deals scaling Wind damage to one enemy.

Damage is always very low, albeit scaling.

Bottomless Envy Shadow Chie's unique move. Deals scaling Physical damage to one enemy, and inflicts Dizzy, granting a One More. Shadow Chie may only use this move if a party member is already Down.

In a debug setting, having a party member cast this skill on an enemy will only deal scaling Physical damage and inflict Dizzy which has no actual effect on the enemy. This occurs because the move doesn't apply Down; Shadow Chie's coded behavior would not let the move be used in this manner.

Burn to Ashes Shadow Yukiko's unique move. Deals medium Fire damage to all enemies.
Terror Voice Shadow Yukiko's unique move. Chance to cast Fear on one enemy.
Shivering Rondo Shadow Yukiko's unique move. Deals Heavy Almighty damage to a enemy with Fear. Shadow Yukiko cannot use this move unless the target is inflicted with Fear.
Summon Shadow Yukiko's unique move. Summons Charming Prince. This move will only work once per battle. Internally, there are 2 separate "Summon" moves. One will summon Charming Prince, while the other will show the message "The Prince will not answer."
Forbidden Murmur Shadow Kanji's unique move. Inflicts Poison on all Male Enemies. Will always miss Female enemies.
Roar of Wrath Shadow Kanji's unique move. Inflicts Rage on all Female Enemies. Will always miss Male enemies.
Fanatical Spark Shadow Kanji's unique move. Deals medium Electric damage to all enemies.
Supreme Insight Shadow Rise's unique move. Makes all alive enemies always miss, with an accompanying message explaining attacks "will not connect", resulting in any cast Skill or Attack doing nothing. No effect on dead enemies.

In a debug setting, Supreme Insight being cast by a party member is the exception to Skills missing as described above.

Nihil Hand Shadow Teddie's unique move. Deals heavy Almighty damage to all enemies, with a chance of Downing random enemies, and granting One More. All of these effects are blocked if the player chooses to Guard.
Ultra Charge Shadow Teddie's unique move. No effect, and will display the message "Energy is concentrated to Shadow Teddie!". If used twice, Nihil Hand will be cast. If the party deals enough damage to Shadow Teddie before he can use the move twice, Ultra Charge and the accompanying Nihil Hand will be cancelled.
Nullity Guidance Shadow Teddie's unique move. Deals medium Almighty damage to an enemy with a chance to inflict Dizzy, granting 1 more.
Character Setup Shadow Mitsuo's unique move. Completely constructs Hero, and may only be used at the very beginning of the battle.
Attack Shadow Mitsuo's unique move. Deals light Almighty damage to one enemy.
Whisper Shadow Mitsuo's unique move. Starts construction of Hero. Construction will be interrupted if the party deals enough damage before his next turn, where he will attempt to cast Chant.
Chant Shadow Mitsuo's unique move. Continues construction of Hero. Construction will be interrupted if the party deals enough damage before his next turn, where he will attempt to cast Prayer.
Prayer Shadow Mitsuo's unique move. Completes construction of Hero, allowing him to use Hero moves as described below.
Command Shadow Mitsuo's unique move. Selects either Attack, Bomb or Spell. May only be cast if Hero is fully constructed.

Attack deals medium Almighty damage to one foe.
Bomb deals medium Almighty damage to one foe with a chance of Enervation.
Spell uses Gigadyne, which deals Almighty damage to all foes.
The strength of the attack depends on how many icons are at the top of the screen when the move is used. There are several internal "Command" skills with varying levels of strength, based on the amount of icons.

Element Zero Shadow Naoto's unique move. Nullifies all elemental resistances for 3 turns.
Mute Ray Shadow Naoto's unique move. Deals Almighty damage and drains 50 from one foe, and inflicts Silence.

Shadow Naoto's behavior allows this move to be cast on herself via a party member in a debug setting, functioning as expected.

Quad Converge Kunino-Sagiri's unique move. Raises damage of certain elements, while severely diminishing all others.
Control Kunino-Sagiri's unique move. Controls 1-3 party members, similar to the Charm status effect from Persona 3.
Unerring Justice Kunino-Sagiri's unique move. Deals massive Almighty damage to all foes.
Nebula Oculus Ameno-Sagiri's unique move. Deals Almighty damage to all foes.
Quake Ameno-Sagiri's unique move. Deals Almighty damage to all foes. Chance to knock down enemies.
Bewildering Fog Ameno-Sagiri's and ???'s unique move. All attacks will miss, displaying a message that the attacks "could not connect," resulting in them not affecting the user. Its effect is canceled when the move is used a second time.
World's End Izanami-No-Okami's unique move. Deals heavy Almighty damage to all foes with a chance of inflicting Enervation.
Shell of Denial Marie's unique move. Repels all attacks, including Almighty.
