Margaret joins her sister Elizabeth as a playable character in Persona 4 Arena Ultimax. While the other fighters have one fixed persona, Margaret is able to use multiple personas in battle. Screenshots from Famitsu show Margaret summoning Ardha for a fire attack and Cu Chulainn who does a sword thrust.

Margaret can also summon Lucifer, one of the most powerful personas in the series, who uses Dawn of the Morning Star. This is an Instant Kill move like Yu’s Myriad Truths.

    Heck might as well just throw in Theodore while you are at it.

    • http://resettears.wordpress.com/ Reset Tears

      Theodore with Jack Frost. Make it happen, Atlus!

      • Byron Kerrison II

        That must be the other P3 character…?

        …Was kind of looking forward to seeing Fuuka join the battle or somehow squeezing Shinjiro out their ass.

        • http://www.myspace.com/Juan_Rod bluejuan85

          technically it is indeed from P3 but from P3 Portable mostly from the female side.

        • john doe

          You liked Theo more than P3 MC? Just asking because Atlus said the top fan favorite from P3 will return

    • Arizato

      Theodore made it in as a navigator.

    • Noelemahc

      Not before Minako you don’t!

      • Steven Higgins

        Theo is canon, Minako isn’t

        • Noelemahc

          I know, but their fandoms largely overlap, and her absence from most forms of official universe-expanding works is very disheartening.

          • Steven Higgins

            I’m just saying we have a better chance of getting Theo than Minato, Minako or Shinjiro

        • Tom_Phoenix

          Well, for one thing, practically everything in SMT (which includes Persona, since it is canonically connected to SMT) is canon. Thanks to the Amala Network every variation of every game has happened somewhere and that includes P3P. So the FeMC is arguably just as canon as her male counterpart is…Atlus just hasn’t decided to use her outside P3P itself.

          Even if it was, though, we’re talking about non-canon DLC characters here.

          • Steven Higgins

            But in alternate universes. This takes place in the male continuity (As Elizabeth is looking for a boy). And even if it was in the female universe, there’s still be no chance of her appearing because she suffered the same fate as Minato.

      • Herok♞

        We don’t even have the male P3 protag so Theo makes more sense than Minako

        • http://nabe.kokidokom.net/ Cybersteel

          If Makoto returns, maybe we can have Minako as his alternate costume instead.

    once she is available she will definitely be my main

  • Girioni

    As far as I know… THAT is Helel not Lucifer. Although he has gone as Lucifer before. Recently though Lucifer in P4 is blue skinned.

    • Hexodious

      Shitty skills, useless Null Physical, no R/A/N Light. *Cringes*

        *Look out. We’ve got a nerd here.*

      • john doe

        Go play nocturne and then bash Lucy for having bad stats

    • DividedSeraph

      This is his True Demon(see: Nocturne) form. Helel is his angelic form.

  • Raymond

    that’s cheating…..3 personas!?

  • Raymond

    that’s cheating…..3 personas!?

  • Luis Ibal

    oh men…. oh men *-*

  • Gryr

    It’s Helel, not Lucifer~

  • Tenoko

    That’s Helel

  • Girioni

    Isn’t that Helel in Persona 4? Lucifer is more Blue in P4. Although Helel is basically Lucifer in a religious sense, and Helel used to be called Lucifer in other SMT games.

    • Zeik56

      As I recall, he was called Lucifer in vanilla P3 but they changed it in FES for whatever reason. Which I always thought was strange, because it felt more appropriate to have Satan and Lucifer casting Armageddon.

      • Mr_SP

        The reason for the change is that they added Lucifer, the Fallen Angel. The name suited the demonic form more than the angel form, even if they are the same being.

      • natchu96

        I do believe Satan in SMT was not a demon. The Satan of the franchise was apparently an instrument of YHVH sent to bring judgement to the world. Or something.

        I never played the SMT game he came from, so IDK. That’s what the wiki says.

        • Zeik56

          Yes, in SMT2 he was on the side of Law and a servant of God. But it’s usually Law that’s responsible for bringing about Armageddon anyway.

          If it’s meant to be a reference to SMT though then Satan and Helel would still be odd choices, since neither of them are particularly major SMT characters. Hell, in SMT1 it was Thor who caused Armageddon in the name of Law. He seems to be strictly a Norse deity in Persona though.

  • Demonspartanx20

    for all those saying helel is not lucifer. It has been confirmed Helel is indeed lucifer, he is simply Lucifer’s angel form. And Helel is simply another name for Satan in Hebrew. if you have any doubts on my claim i will refer you to this link, also just try googling Helel and you find Lucifer. http://megamitensei.wikia.com/wiki/Lucifer

    • Wait what

      That’s true, and if this were mainline SMT there’d be no difference between the two. However, Persona 3 FES made the distinction of having both forms as separate Personas. Since these Personas aren’t literally Lucifer the SMT character but aspects of the character’s psyches, the two should be considered separate. Granted, this form DID go through the name-change in the Persona series so it’s understandable people might get confused.

      • Demonspartanx20

        I understand your reasoning with it, though i see it as they are still the same being just two different sides of him. So i think referring to Helel as Lucifer there is no harm, given he is still Lucifer even in name just a different version of his name, it’s angel side.

    • Adrian Duran

      Helel is another name for Lucifer not Satan

      Satan and Lucifer are two different entities

      • Demonspartanx20

        yes you are correct on that, i forgot that in smt they are two different entities rather than how religion portrays it. What i should’ve and ment to say is that Helel is simply another name for Lucifer in Hebrew.

    • Dwight Goodman

      Initially, yes, but P3/P4 had Lucifer and Helel separated, and this one would obviously be Helel.

    • OrangeArmy

      I am honestly surprised that there is so much debate over this really, I thought it was common sense that they are one and the same, just like Setanta and Cu Chulainn are. I guess what they mean is that she uses the angelic Helel form and not demon sideburn smurf Lucifer form, which would make sense I suppose.

    • Yan Zhao

      I think people are just saying that because they are 2 separate personas in the games. In vanilla P3 “Helel” was actually named Lucifer, but P3FES added a demonic Lucifer so they had to keep the angel version with a new name.

    • Abysswalker90

      I have doubts about your claim.
      Helel is not a name for Satan in Hebrew. Helel in Hebrew means praise, and was also a common name.

      During the transition of the old testament from Hebrew, a verse about a prophecy referring to the fall of the king of Babylon who was named Helel Ben Shahar(Helel meaning praise, Ben Shahar meaning son of dawn), whether or not that was his actual name, I’m not sure, but it was misinterpreted as the fall of an angel who became a demon, thus Lucifer was conceived.
      A poor child born of misinterpretation and bad translation.

      • Demonspartanx20

        Yes i know the background of the name Helel and that it was originally to a king. Helel, Satan, Lucifer, Devil. All the same. All from the bible.In the Bible, the Hebraic text in Isaiah 14:2 refers to Helel Ben Shachar or Heylel Ben-Shachar. Helel Ben-Schachar is translated into English as “O shining star, son of the dawn!” The name Lucifer is a translation of Helel Ben-Shachar into Latin by St. Jerome in the fourth century. Lucifer derives from two Latin words, lux (light) and fero (to bear–to bring), meaning light-bearer, light-bringer. The Bible identifies Lucifer as Devil, Satan, serpent, dragon, dweller of hell and other names.

        • Abysswalker90

          My point is that Helel does not mean Devil / is not the name of the Devil in hebrew.
          In Judaism, there is no Satan, the word Satan is merely a general term that means “adversary” in ancient Hebrew, and it does not refer to a specific character.

          • Demonspartanx20

            ah ok, I understand your point. Things have changed over time, and i guess SMT stayed with the changed lore. Though i’m glad this was a civil discussion and not an overly heated argument or one full of nothing but trolling .

    • RagingTiger44

      Why is this a thing? I read on megami tensei wiki that Helel was the hebrew name for Lucifer. I know P3:FES changed Lucifer’s name to Helel because both his forms were in the game (Helel Star Arcana, Lucifer Judgement Arcana).

  • Ecchitori

    I bet she’s gonna be another SP-based character like Elizabeth. That Invigorate looks like it’s fairly making it obvious. Also Helel is smiling at your demise!

  • egokiller

    for those of you who are bitching about Helel this and Lucifer that, check out their names in the japanese versions of persona games, which are ルシフェル (Rushiferu) and ルシファー (Rushifā) respectively

    • Neppygear

      That’s really, really confusing. Atlus clearly need to sit down.

  • luna venus

    Beautiful as always…

  • 하세요

    Wonder if she’s just as glass cannon as Lizzy.

    • Slayven19

      She might be considering her super meter looks the same as lizy.

  • Satoshi Ookami

    My jaw literally dropped.
    Liz gets Thanatos, strong Persona but not the best.
    Marie gets Kaguya, again, strong but not the best.
    And then Margaret gets light form of the strongest Persona ever? O.o Favoritism much? o.O

    And now Atlus will bring Igor with true Lucifer and we have a whole cast of OPness.

    • http://s1.zetaboards.com/Espada_of_Alexandria/index/ konpon568

      Whoever said that Igor gets True Lucifer? His Persona will be the true representation of his Nose: True Mara. Any future arguments about this are now invalid.

      • Hound

        Igor’s True Mara could be his strongest attack.

        I imagine Igor as a character that would have Incubus and Girimehkala as regulars though.. Or Succubus and Alice if you’re trying not to be funny.

        • http://s1.zetaboards.com/Espada_of_Alexandria/index/ konpon568

          Heh, I am trying to be both funny and serious. And all of that can work. But Alice could be her own character with her two followers.

    • Hound

      Margaret does use Helel (Lucifer), Ardha, and Cu Chulainn in the original game though.

      Personally, I was originally disappointed that Elizabeth didn’t get Jack Frost or Alice in P4Arena XD

      (still hoping on a Demi-Fiend or Raidou with Pixie to randomly get added to this series of fighters XD!)

    • mike dickson

      igor wouldn’t need true Lucifer his finisher will be is nose extending to a ridiculous length then he beats down his opponent mercilessly and then he sends the person to another dimension the only thing you hear is Persona persona persona Social link social link

  • Slayven19

    Love her, I’m maining her day 1. She sprite looks good as well.

  • MrTyrant

    She is summoning Helel, Shiva and Cu chulain. Thats really OP.

    • Slayven19

      That’s really Over Kill to!

    • Julio D. Zulkarnain

      And is that Yoshitsune I see on 1st pic? Sh*t just got very real, lol

    • Abysswalker90

      That’s Ardhanarishvara, not Shiva.

      • MrTyrant

        The reskin can be…confusing…

  • Raziel Kõbe

    Older sister, more powerfull

    • natchu96

      I was under the impression that Liz was supposed to be stronger.

      Might just be my memory being messed up though.

      • colorblindnightmare

        I get the same impression. I thino there was something margaret said that indicated such. Though, I feel as if my memory is trapped ina fog.

        • john doe

          Margaret has stated she is stronger than Liz

  • Jesse Torres

    She’s not a velvet room assistant for nothing after all.
    Luci looks beautiful.

  • revenent hell

    Awww, she’s has got most of my favorite Persona’s! I was thinking if they make her free to, since Adachi and Marie are for the first week, I might give her a whirl….. I did rather well with Elizabeth so since Margaret appears to be similar I might not have any problems there really.

  • SetzerGabbiani

    Helel…it’s been a while. I spammed Armageddon as much as I could way back in Persona 3 FES.

  • Narrator 1

    I think we know who Ultimax’s Score Attack final boss will be.

    • Ouryu

      Will she appear in it? because she is a dlc

  • MSJ

    DAT GAE BOLG & MORNING STAR :3

  • oniru

    Why is this article calling “helel” “lucifer”? I get that their essentially the same person but still a quick wiki check could have cleared that up.

    • ndjn3979

      So nitpick

    • Frozen_kappa

      They just translated the Japanese text but it really should be which would be Lucifel ルシフェル instead of Lucifer ルシファー. Helel was given in the English translation .

    • john doe

      He is only named Helel in persona. As it is the most mainstream series Atlus has worldwide they don’t want to piss of abrahamic religions. Because yes he is THE Dark Lord. In all other smt games it is just Lucifer or a variation like Louis Cypher

  • Ric Vazquez

    Awesome

  • Shade DMessiah

    Helel next to Raksasha is my favorite persona. Now i have to switch my mains up AGAIN.

  • Kornelious

    Well dammmmnnnn! :P

  • ShadowDivz

    I’m surprised no ones complaining about her being DLC.
    …Maybe the internet has matured?

    • Ty Austin

      Nah, it’s because this is an anime fighter. The response would be completely different if this were a Capcom game. ;)

      • XiaomuArisu

        Go suck Capcom´s dick elsewhere

    • XiaomuArisu

      Adachi and Marie are free for a short time
      So we assume its the same for Margareth

    • God

      Why “matured”? Just beacuse what other people’s views conflict with your own doesn’t make them inmature.
