Marukyu Striptease is a dungeon in Persona 4. It is the reality within the Midnight Channel created from Rise Kujikawa's feelings.

Profile[]

Again, Teddie has a hard time detecting where Rise's dungeon is. The protagonist must go to town and gather information on Rise. First, the protagonist meets a Risette Fanboy at the Practice Building in Yasogami High School. Later, he speaks with Rise's grandmother at their tofu shop in the southern part of the Central Shopping District, who tells him of a paparazzo that's been chased to the Samegawa Flood Plain riverbank. The protagonist later finds the paparazzo at the riverbank, and trades information with him about Risette. This information is then delivered to Teddie, who is finally able to sense her.

The information traded reveals that the dungeon is created because of the two conflicting personalities Risette has. One is the teenage idol side of her that she shows in her television and stage performances, while the other is the polite, soft-spoken girl. She has a hard time searching for her true self, which spawned the dungeon as a striptease club.

As the party treks into the dungeon, Rise's voice echoes in the corridors, speaking innuendos as they go. When the party finally finds Rise, she was aside her other self, who is convincing Rise that her true self is the daring and bold star idol. Rise's refusal to accept this spawned her Shadow that could analyze the party's moves and turn it against them. Seeing that the party is almost defeated, Teddie, still in conflict over his true self, is empowered to protect his friends so that he would not be alone.

Teddie manages to defeat Rise's Shadow, but suffers damage to his appearance as a result. Rise accepts her other self, tranforming her Shadow into the Persona Himiko. However, when Rise exclaims that there's no such thing as a true self, Teddie's conflicting thoughts worsen to the point that his own other self emerges. The Other Teddie tempts Teddie to believe that there is no truth in this world, and that he is nothing but a hollow and empty shell, living a lie that he believes in. Teddie refuses to give in and tries to attack, but fails. The Shadow then turns on the party, claiming that their search for the truth is futile and that even if they defeat him, their quest will be in vain. The party manages to defeat it with help from Rise, who takes over Teddie's role as navigator.

  • The battle with Shadow Rise ends roughly 2 turns after using her Supreme Analysis move, which happens after 2/3 of her HP is depleted. No moves will connect after her analysis. HP + SP restored afterwards — the battle is decidedly unwinnable.
  • The battle with Shadow Teddie follows right after Shadow Rise, once entering the battle with Shadow Teddie, the party's health is fully restored.
  • Momentary Child only appears after rescuing Rise from July 12th onward.
