a special conversation in Megami Ibunroku Persona between the player's Persona Durga and the demon Gdon

"The echoes of soul began to stir..."
—A special conversation being triggered in Persona 2: Eternal Punishment

In the Megami Tensei games where contact commands are available for negotiation between the party members and the enemy, sometimes a special conversation may be triggered under specific conditions. These conversations usually reference the mythological connection between the two parties, which can be either friendly or hostile. Conversations might also reference visual references, such as Jack Frost and Black Frost. Usually after a friendly chat, the enemy may gift the player team with a specific item and then leave the battle. If the relationship is hostile, the battle may either continue normally or someone will be inflicted with the berserk ailment.

Megami Ibunroku Persona[edit | edit source]

A special conversation can be triggered if specific demons are encountered while party members are equipped with specific Personas. The demons/Personas which initiate these conversations are noted on the stat templates as "Persona Talk" (ペルソナトーク, Perusona Tōku)?. If the relationship between Persona and demon is Friendly (友好, Yūkō)? or between a Master and their Servant (主従, Shujū)?, the player obtains the demon's Spell Card, however Spell Cards obtained this way do not count towards obtaining the Avatar Totem. If their relationships is Hostile (敵対, Tekitai)?, both will be afflicted with Fury.

Persona 2[edit | edit source]

Similar to Persona, if certain demons are encountered while party members are equipped with specific Personas, special conversations will be initiated. The specific demons and Personas required are again noted under "Persona Talk". Special conversations can now result in the player receiving Tarot Cards of the demon's Arcana if the relationship is Friendly. If their relationship is that of a Master and their Servant, the player will either receive Tarot Cards, form a pact with the demon, or receive a special item. If the relationship is Hostile, both will be afflicted with Berserk (not to be confused with Fury). This particular ailment is incurable by any skill or item unless the berserk ally is rendered unconscious and then revived.
