Artwork of the protagonists of the Persona series for its 20th Anniversary Festival. Art by Shigenori Soejima.

The term protagonist (主人公, Shujinkō)? describes several characters across the Megami Tensei franchise that a player usually uses as a primary character.

For the most part, protagonists are silent when controlled by the player but tend to gain speaking roles once they're not acting as a protagonist anymore or in non-RPG spin-offs. A few of them, like Yu and Serph, also talk in non-game adaptation of games they were silent in. The major exceptions to this are the Majin Tensei and Devil Children series, in which their protagonists all have regular speaking roles even when controlled by the player. The other exceptions are: Aigis from Persona 3 FES: The Answer, Itsuki Aoi from Tokyo Mirage Sessions ♯FE, and Serph (as Seraph) from Digital Devil Saga: Avatar Tuner 2.
