- Persona 2: The Jun Kurosu Debate
Eternal Punishment takes place in one after the original was set on fire by Nyarlathotep. Maya remembers very little about events that transpired due to the everyone's memories being erasedbut she does have moments on Deja Vu for her to base her actions on and manages to sniff out both Tatsuya and JOKER by herself. The second game follows an alternate timeline with some familiar events and faces but things are just a little bit different this time around.
There's a new cult, a different Joker, and Sudou's new goal is to cause enough chaos that people start to remember the apocalyptic universe "the other side", as he elegantly puts it and his earlier reign of terror, causing the bad reality to manifest back into ours. Always Save the Girl: Tatsuya has dedicated himself — almost like a samurai — to defending Maya, which is absolutely evident in Eternal Punishment.
As is Jun in Innocent Sin, who went to such lengths to protect her that he took up the mantle of Joker in order to avenge her apparent death. In fact, when he and Tatsuya were children, they promised each other that they would always protect Maya together. Tatsuya's Scenario takes this a step further by extending this trope to Shiori Miyashiro.
Nyarlathotep mocks him about this. Overlaps with Poe's Law. All the rumour demons are taken from Japanese urban legends. Thanks to your efforts during the EX Dungeon, Tatsuya Sudou, who's been pretty damn respectable without his memory, gets it back and promptly goes back to his old self.
Not that you actually had a choice. Also implied to be the case with the Tatsuya that is native to the Eternal Punishment reality. He is friends with Anna, stated to frequently visit clubs and arcades and he is also described as "reckless" and "with a cocky grin ready to fight anyone who looks at him wrong" even in his driving license picture.
The playable Tatsuya does not do any of these things due to his previous emotional trauma preventing him from interacting with other people. Anatomy of the Soul: The original Joker's stated goal is to revive Xibalba using the "Dream Energy" stolen from those who summon him.
Eikichi witnesses this firsthand when his bandmates are zapped by Joker, reducing them to shells devoid of any willpower or aspirations. Over the course of the game, the threesome revert to shadow-like beings, then fade away entirely.
In Tatsuya's Scenario, we have the Trapezohedrons, which are literal pieces of one's soul with each one defining an aspect of a person such as knowledge or desire.

Your task is to collect all of them in order to save Shiori. The main impetus behind Innocent Sin is a rumor that the Mayans were alien visitors from Maia, a star in the constellation Pleiades, which thanks to Nyarlathotepbecomes retroactively true. After the Reset Button that triggers Eternal Punishment's plot, all supposed existence of Ancient Astronauts never existed.
Another Side, Another Story: Remarked on by Maya's coworkers during Eternal Punishment's prologue; the planets all aligned in the Grand Cross formation "this summer", but nothing happened. Those who've played the previous game remember things a little differently. All this fuss about Armageddon and Grand Cross, and nothing happened this summer The more hype, the more people complain.
Some of Maya's battle quotes count as apologetic, such as "I'm sorry Tatsuya and Jun also use this line. In Eternal Punishment, you'll find Salam Ladeen sipping martinis in a hotel bar in Narumi he'll switch to the less glamorous Jolly Roger Tavern once the spaceship appears. He's actually one of the most important NPCs; he offers super-rare Tarot in exchange for completely mapping out certain dungeons.
I was disappointed that the one shining moment of a well written gay character in the Persona franchise was another villain, similar to Griffith from Berserk or Dio from JoJobut I do believe that the game attempts to save itself from the trope by giving Jun a redemption arc.
Part of his redemption arc takes place in the temples, with an emphasis on the Taurus and Leo temples. Even though until then he had been the villain causing all their troubles and creating shadow people of their friends, Jun does care deeply for the team and his dialogue in the temples reflects is as he lists off the positive aspects of Lisa, Eikichi, and Tatsuya in their respective temples.
This is prominent in the Leo temple as Jun lists all the positive qualities that the Leo zodiac implies, and how they apply to Tatsuya. Lisa immediately reacts and tries to figure out what Jun had been saying to Tatsuya.Persona 2 Innocent Sin Boss Shadow Tatsuya [Hard]
Leo Temple comment In the Taurus temple, Lisa brings up the chance to confess to one of your teammates after the battle, including Eikichi and Jun, or the chance to stay silent. Yet, while she sees Jun as valid competition in both temples, Jun is not given the chance to respond to the confession in Taurus.
All of this however, is an after thought conversation, implying that it was not on purpose that Jun was coded as gay. Many fans also take this to mean that Jun and Tatsuya are the canon pairing, which is the reasoning behind the recommendations of the game to newer fans.
There is more to be said about Jun under the umbrella of queer theory, yet, in the end and for the purpose of keeping this shortone can easily see Jun as canonically gay, and the vast amount of people on the internet seem to also hold this opinion.
