Persona 3 Portable[edit | edit source]
Unlike Persona 4 and Persona 5, Protect can only be unlocked after ranking up Fool Arcana Social Link up to Rank 5. The entire party will automatically learn this move without the need of ranking other Party Social Link.
Persona 5 / Royal[edit | edit source]
Protect is a Confidant ability party members are able to learn. If active, there is a chance the user will be able to protect the protagonist from a fatal attack and faint in their place, preventing a Game Over.
Persona 5 Strikers[edit | edit source]
Unlike Persona 5, Protect is obtained from the start and is activated when a player character is about to take a fatal blow. Unlike previous games, Protect will not leave the member with 1 HP.
Devil Survivor[edit | edit source]
A similar mechanic is present in Devil Survivor. Some demons can learn skills that would protect the field Leader such as Hero Soul, Knight Soul and Paladin Soul. If equipping a demon with this skills, the demon will take that blow instead to protect the field leader and endure the fatal blow.
