+1. Introduction+   (p4u1)
+++++++++++++++++

Hey there everyone!  I typed this up as I was playing Story Mode and decided to
share it all with you. It should be pretty accurate but if there are any 
mistakes just send me a PM on GameFAQs. 
Name's Bradoshado as previously indicated.

Also, please do not claim this work as your own or link it on any sites
without my permission.  This is my work.


!!!NOTE!!!
When I say "Cliffhanger Clear", I'm referring to completing a character's story
mode up until it says "To Be Continued" and gives you a silver circle next to
their portrait in the Story Mode selection screen.

When I say "Full Clear", I'm referring to completing a character's story mode
all the way to the very end.  You should see the credits roll and a gold circle
by their portrait.

Labrys and Elizabeth's Story Modes can only be Full Cleared.

Joke endings do not fall under either of these categories but do count towards
100% Story Mode completion.  And they're hilarious...so do them.




++++++++++++
+2. Unlocks+   (p4u2)
++++++++++++

Cliffhanger clearing one character's story mode unlocks
Teddie and Kanji's Stories.

Cliffhanger clearing a second character's story mode unlocks 
Naoto, Mitsuru, Akihiko, and Aigis' Stories.

Cliffhanger Clearing a Persona 3 character's story (Aigis, Mitsuru, Akihiko)
unlocks Labrys's Story

Completing Labrys's Story enables Full Clear for 
Yukiko, Yu, Yosuke, Chie, Kanji, and Teddie's Stories

Fully completing one of the above stories enables full clear for
Mitsuru, Aigis, Naoto, and Akihiko's Stories.

Fully clearing one of the Persona 3 characters (Mitsuru, Aigis, Akihiko)
and one of the original four Persona 4 characters available to you 
(Yukiko, Yosuke, Yu, Chie) unlocks Elizabeth's Story.





++++++++++++++++++++++++
+3. Tips for Story Mode+   (p4u3)
++++++++++++++++++++++++

1. First off, take heed that you do NOT need to worry about losing to anyone
in Story Mode.  Blazblue made you do this and it isn't necessary here.

2. Unlock and beat Labrys's mode right away so you can start full clearing.
It saves time and makes things more streamlined for you.  
For example: Yu > Chie > Aigis > Labrys would be a path that 
unlocks Labrys the quickest way.  You have leeway though, just 
look at the Unlocks section to see what you need.

3. If you select a Story that you have already  Cliffhanger Cleared,
the game will give you the option to start from the beginning or 
from the cliffhanger, so no need to hoard saves for that purpose!

4. You can skip text that you've been over.  
This'll make replaying through segments MUCH faster.  
You can also change options concerning Text Skip as well as 
the Text speed in the pause menu.  And unless you change 
the default configuration, the game will NEVER SKIP over anything
you haven't already read.  Even if it's only one single line.  So no worries!

5. If you plan on going for 100%, or even THINK you MIGHT go for it,
please read the section on 100%.  It'll help you save some time if you read
it beforehand.





+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
+4. 100% Story Mode Completion+   (p4u4)
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

!!!NOTE!!!
First, let it be known that getting 100% completion gets you nothing.  
Not even a trophy.

So if you're stuck at 99% worried that you're missing out...you're not.
But if you just can't stand thinking about that dreaded 99% sitting on a screen
you're never going to return to ever...read on.  ^_^




Getting 100%, as said previously, DOES NOT require you losing to anyone.  
Typically, if you fully clear everyone's Stories, 
and also get the three joke endings (Yukiko, Chie, and Kanji), 
then you will be very close to 100%.  Probably 99%


How do you fix this?  Here is a list of things it could be:


1. You haven't unlocked the secret Margaret scene at the end of Yu's Story
by choosing all the first dialogue options.

2. You HAVE unlocked the secret Margaret scene but you haven't
chosen both dialogue options contained within that secret Margaret scene.

3. You haven't chosen every one of Yu's dialogue options.
This will require two full runs.  Just choose all 1st on one run and
all 2nd on the other.  There aren't story branch deviations that stem
from what you choose, they barely affect anything and are there as a nod
to Yu being Persona 4's main character. 

4. You haven't chosen both dialogue options contained within Chie's Joke ending.

5. You haven't chosen both dialogue options in Kanji's Scene 5.  
Though it seems like they are Normal/Joke ending flags, they aren't.  
So it's possible to choose Option 1 in that scene both times, 
and get both endings by what you choose later on.  Be careful.



!!!!!!!!!!!MAJOR TIP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
!!!!!!!!!!!MAJOR TIP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
!!!!!!!!!!!MAJOR TIP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If you are planning to go for 100%, utilize saves in order to save yourself
some time.  More specifically, utilize saves for Chie, Yukiko, Kanji, and Yu
since they have dialogue options.

Yukiko: Keep a save at Scene 7 for Joke/Normal path fork.

Yu: Keep a save at Scene 19 that has had all 1st dialogue options chosen for
the secret Margaret scene's dialogue options.

Chie: Keep a save at Scene 6 for Joke/Normal path fork, 
and Scene 8 (post Akihiko fight) for the Joke ending's dialogue options.

Kanji: Keep a save at Scene 5 for the dialogue options, 
and Scene 7 for Joke/Normal path fork.

I'll put reminders of this in the Character Story Modes section

=======================
Yu Narukami (002)
=======================

!!!NOTE!!!
Yu has a lot of dialogue choices in his Story Mode (An homage to him being
the main character of Persona 4).  These choices don't directly affect all
that much besides a final secret scene with Margaret.
Simply choose the first choice every time to unlock that scene (which has a
choice of its own).

Other than this, the choices shouldn't concern you unless
you are going for 100% completion.  Yu doesn't have a joke ending and
the choices don't lead to branching storyline changes or anything like that.
