The protagonist of Persona 4 is the main character, and leader of a group of high school students known as the Investigation Team. Although the player can name him in his game, in the media following Persona 4, his official name is Yu Narukami (鳴上 悠, Narukami Yu) in most appearances. In addition, he is given the one-off name Souji Seta (瀬多 総司, Seta Souji) in the manga.

Yu Narukami is a high school student staying in the small, rural town of Inaba with his uncle Ryotaro Dojima and cousin Nanako, as his own parents are working abroad. As he makes friends and studies, various unexplained murders occur in the small town, and a mysterious TV channel switches on every foggy midnight called the Midnight Channel. The protagonist and his high school friends can enter televisions to explore the mysterious Midnight Channel, also called TV World, and slay monsters called Shadows, which represent people's darkest secrets.

In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate[edit]

A DLC costume for Mii Swordfighter based on the Protagonist is available for purchase in Ultimate. This causes the sword trails to become yellow, harkening back to the aesthetics of Persona 4.
