    I am probably going to get a lot of complaints, but, design-wise, a lot of characters from Shin Megami Tensei: Survivor 2 are similar of existing characters, sometimes being almost copies. I mean:

    Protagonist = "Phones" (Survivor 1) = Minato (Persona 3)
    Io = Chie (Persona 4)
    Daichi = Yoosuke (Persona 4)
    Yamato = Naoya (Survivor 1)
    Makoto = Naoto (Persona 4)
    Fumi = Mari (Survivor 1)

    I also see a fake Junpei (Persona 3) and Haru (Survivor 1).

    Here's some pictures to make this thread substantially easier to understand.

    My answer: Anime art tends to look the same and be reused. Seriously I swear anime characters for the most part look the same.

    The Protagonist looks similar to "Phones" (the protagonist of Survivor 1) who already looks similar to Minato, so, technically, the protagonist seems to be copying a copy.

    Slightly off topic, but I laughed when I read "Brosuke".
