Persona 5: Dancing Star Night

I get the name Moon from Persona 3: Dancing Moon Night makes sense but where does Star from Persona 5: Dancing Star Night come from. The only time that Star was mentioned was With the Stars and Us and even then the ending theme is named Hoshi To Bokura To. --Cococrash11 (talk) 00:48, August 3, 2017 (UTC)

The social stats are also in the shape of a star. —AlexShepherd 00:55, August 3, 2017 (UTC)

Is the protagonist named Ren Amamiya?

It's pretty self-explanatory. I edited the page and put the name "Ren Amamiya" instead of "Protagonist". Is he actually named Ren Amamiya in this game or not?Tokoyami no Nietzsche (talk) 19:58, December 24, 2017 (UTC)

The name "Ren Amamiya" is used in the most recent trailer, this isn't really something you need to be asking for confirmation on.--Otherarrow (talk) 20:01, December 24, 2017 (UTC)
Are these names something the user provides or are they set in stone? And what is the canon status of the dance games? Great Mara (talk) 20:28, December 24, 2017 (UTC)
The first dance game, at least, was canon and set post-P4 (specifically, post Golden's new epilogue). Dancing Star Night and Dancing Moon Night appear to at the very least have story sequences and whatnot, so they are likely canon as well. As for the names, in at least P4D there was no renaming by the player that I know of, and Ren Amamiya (as well as Makoto Yuuki for the P3 in P3D) was provided by the most recent trailer.--Otherarrow (talk) 20:57, December 24, 2017 (UTC)
Actually no. I remember that the game having been confirmed on not having a story mode, however it seems that isn't the case anymore. Now the issue is if the games are canon or not, until they are confirmed as such I recommend that the pages retain the title of protagonist instead of the names used in the trailer.

Canonness/Story Mode

These games technically are, at least for the Velvet siblings. Justine/Caroline/Elizibeth bring up the events of P4DAN, stating they were jealous of her guest killing a god by dancing, which is why they summoned their's to dance. They then bet against each other onto whos team wins and that the loser "goes to hell". I'm only partly into it, but everything points to this being canon. In the PQ sense, it also states their memories will be erased, but it's also clear that wont be the case for the twins/liz. the fact they brought up the events of p4DAN and also mention erasing their memories PQ style is pretty obvious tbh. This would then mean canon for Makoto Yuki. So yeah, the game does technically have a minor story. Liz also states the area theyre in allows time bending, and hints about Makotos fate, but then says pretend I didnt say that. since the VR is inbetween time and space, she was able to go back to 2009 to have her dudes dance, at the same time as the 2016 dudes, to compete against each other Marcusbwfc (talk) 06:20, December 5, 2018 (UTC)

Just by having a minor story and references to previous games doesn't mean they are canon. Take the Naoto novel for example, that thing has references the P3 and P4 and yet it isn't canon (at least not now). So no, we won't change their names here unless there's proof, either by word of god or something else, about said canonicity. 06:45, December 5, 2018 (UTC)
Those aren't exactly the same case at all. One's an actual game developed with input from the devs and the other is a light novel written by a third party that was later explicitly said to be noncanon. Its one thing to be cautious, especially when we didn't know if it would even have a story mode, but its another to try and pick and choose whats canon based solely on if it was spelt out for us. (in case it wasn't clear, I'm all for treating P3D and P5D as canon).--Otherarrow (talk) 01:28, December 6, 2018 (UTC)
