Is it just me, or are the "Persona" from the games/anime just a rip-off of JoJo's "Stands"?
>>
Oh dear god.

Probably.

The whole concept of Shaman King was admitted to be a ripoff of Stands too. JoJo influenced modern manga and anime quite a bit.

falcoon is really hit or miss

I'd call it more of a tribute, but yes, they are alike.
Although Personas are mostly derived from religion and mythology.

Then there is the matter of Mara...

It's one of the weirder additions in FES.
Armageddon is still the best thing you can do though.

I don't see Jotaro shooting himself to call out Star Platinum.
>>
There's enough difference between the Stands and the Personae to believe they are just simmilar ideas created separately, unless you want to get nitpicky in a "THIS IS A RIPOFF OF EVANGELION!" sort of way.

>>10216447
Are you kidding me? SK has even less to do with Jojo than Persona. The concept of spiritual aides that only a few can see are much older than anime as a whole, like from actual Shamanic beliefs.

EVERYTHING IS A RIPOFF OF EVERYTHING.

Shooting was only added in Persona 3, didn't exist in the Previous Shin Megami Tensei titles.
>>
>>10216542
No, you idiot. The creator of SK himself said he was 'inspired' by JoJo and was a huge fan, and got the idea from it.

Holy shit, I had completely forgotten about that.
>>
>>10216618
HAHA OH WOW, I completely forgot that.
>>
The Taro cards references kinda gave me the same idea...
>>
>>10216589
Uh no shooting has been there since Persona 1. It is only in the Persona series though. Persona 3 is not the first one.
>>
>>10216618
I lol'd.

Hmm, you sure about that?
I was sure it worked with getting each time the corresponding cards...

I can't help but referring to "stands" when watching Blue Dragon.
>>
>>10216656
Uh no. The Evoker, like several other things, was introduced in P3. It's one of the reasons people are so confused by how Trinity Soul uses the regular "Persona just pops out" method from Revelations, Innocent Sin and Eternal Punishment.
>>
>>10216285
Probably just "inspired" by Jojo. A lot of things were.
>>
>>10216285
Yes.
