Maya and Mitsuo are like the only characters who were able to just deny their Shadows until they no longer exist. I dunno if Maya never admitting any truth in her Shadow makes her badass or makes her shadow just a bigger wimp than most shadows. It's hard to tell.

I never really considered the shadow selves of Persona 2 to be the true shadows of the characters, given the way they are formed. I just prefer to call them duplicates caused by the Big Bad and rumors, which I don't really think has much effect on their actual selves. I mean, some of the doppelganges we see may have some stuff in common with their real counterparts, but I guess Maya is just too busy thinking positive to actually care about the intended purpose of the fakes.

Exactly. These 'shadow' selves were created by rumors "five terrorists bombed those places", or you could also say they're cooked by Nyarlathotep.
Pretty similar to Ultimax, no?
Alas, if they're the real shadow selves of the characters, they would come out of their owners, as Personas-revert-to Shadows. Tatsu and co. have their personas within at all times, sooo nope.

Well Yes and No. It's true that these shadows were just made by Nyarlathotep (actually I think it's implied they're all just him taking the form himself) but that's because Nyarlathotep himself is the shadow of humanity. ALL shadows are created by Nyarlathotep, presumably even the ones in P4. That's why later in the game when Tatsuya, Eikichi, and Lisa all fight their shadows, they do accept their shadows to tame them, and it makes them stronger, much like P4. The rules themselves are different, but they do share a lot of similarities.

Also, congratulations, GuessWho, your post was the 300th comment on this comic! Hooray! I mean this site counts all of my author's notes as comments so...I dunno how many it actually is, but the site said 300, so go you :)
