Card Name: The Fortune
What They Say: "I believed that you would come for me." - Naoto Shirogane, Persona 4
What it Is: The Fortune Arcana is an Arcana card that appears in Persona 4: The Animation and in the Shin Megami Tensei: Persona video game series. It is portrayed as a wheel with different animals wearing wealthy and beggarly clothes up and down the wheel.
What it Represents: "The Fortune" symbolizes fate and varying luck, fortunes and opportunities. What goes up will go down, what goes down will go up. Bearers of the Fortune Arcana are often individuals who roll with life's punches and/or seize their own destiny regardless of their surroundings, a just metaphor for the inner turmoil Naoto goes through in the series.
In Persona 4: The Animation: The sudden realization that Naoto was a girl in disguise floors Yu and the Investigation Team (although one member in particular shows signs of relief). Shadow Naoto has the groups Persona on the ropes, while it continues to berate the real Naoto for her inability to make friends, her closed off nature, and the fact that even if she one day becomes a great detective, she will never be a man. Kanji summons all his strength to distract Shadow Naoto while Yu summons his own Persona to defeat it. The real Naoto lets her shadow self, along with all of it's weaknesses and doubts, into her heart. The final member of the Investigation Team receives The Fortune Arcana and its Persona, Sakuna-Hikona.
