Origin[edit]

This theme is an arrangement of a song from Persona 5. It originally played when exploring Tokyo, the main setting of the game, at night; an instrumental version plays during the day. The original song has a laidback, bluesy style that primarily focuses on bass, muted electric guitar, and rhodes. For the Ultimate remix, the song's tempo is significantly increased while keeping the same instrumentation; a string section is also added, giving it a more lively and energetic tone overall. The vocals are performed by the original singer, Lyn Inaizumi.

Origin[edit]

This song is an arrangement of the boss theme from Persona 4; its melody recurs throughout the game. This particular arrangement keeps the guitar-focused approach of the initial version of the song, but uses the structure and piano instrumentation from the "Acceptance" version of the theme, which plays when the Shadow is accepted. The remix also features part of the melody of the game's end credits theme, "Never More".

Origin[edit]

This track is the main battle theme taken from Persona 3. Despite remaining unchanged otherwise, the line "Damn right" is replaced with the line "All night", which is used elsewhere in the song. This is likely due to the game's age rating being lower than Persona 3 in all regions.

Aria of the Soul[edit]

Aria of the Soul
Track Title Aria of the Soul
Universe Persona
Debut Game Revelations: Persona
Availability Downloadable
Link [12]

Origin[edit]

This song is an arrangement of the recurring Velvet Room theme that appears throughout the series, debuting in the original Revelations: Persona. Despite this, it is classified as a Persona 5 music track on Mementos, as indicated by the red background when it plays. Whereas "Aria of the Soul" typically uses solemn instrumentation similar to that of a chamber orchestra—a female vocalist backed by piano and strings—the Ultimate remix takes the "acid jazz" approach of Persona 5's soundtrack, introducing bass and electric guitar along with a drumkit.

Trivia[edit]

  • Although not present in the actual game, the instrumental arrangement of Life Will Change and the track The Spirit play during Joker's initial reveal trailer.
  • Interestingly, unlike other series, the Persona tracks are listed in reverse chronological order.
  • Much like Cloud, Joker has a special victory theme that overrides the standard results theme, taken directly from Persona 5. When a song from Persona 3 or Persona 4 is played on Mementos, the victory theme from the corresponding game is played if Joker wins.
  • Hidden in the data files of the game are the original versions of Beneath the Mask and Aria of the Soul, which go unused in favor of their remixed versions, most likely due to their unfitting nature as background music for a fast-paced fighting game.
  • On the DLC section of the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate official site, Aria of the Soul is listed as being from Persona 3, rather than Revelations: Persona.
