Players will eventually come across boss floors, in which the player must defeat powerful Shadows in order to continue their progress.
Occasionally, innocent civilians will wander into Tartarus, winding up on certain floors.
Rescuing these civilians safely before a full moon appears grants bonus rewards obtained from the police station.
Additionally, some activities are limited by the protagonist's three attributes; Academics, Charm, and Courage, which can be built by performing various activities or making certain correct choices.
During the evening, players can choose to visit Tartarus, the game's main dungeon, where they can build their party's experience and gain new items.
In the worst-case scenario, a Reversed Social Link can break, effectively removing all Personas of that Arcana from the game.
