Yu Narukami is the protagonist of Persona 4, although in the game itself, the player can choose his name. In Persona 4, he is a silent protagonist, as in the series tradition. Except for instances where he audibly speaks when summoning a Persona and so on, with his personality ultimately based on the player's actions and decisions. This is emphasized in Persona 4 Golden, as the Investigation Team members comment how he doesn't talk much when equipped with the Butler Suit. His dialogue choices make him seem very neutral, as opposed to the protagonists of Persona 3, and includes some limited sense of humor along with occasional flirtatious or silly behavior. Overall, he is portrayed through his dialogue options and actions as having a more extrovert personality than the Persona 3 protagonist, such as when both hear Jika Net Tanaka, and the former describes it as a "cheery song" unlike the latter, who describes it as an "annoying song." But while he seems to have a strong moral compass, there are several dialogue options that shows he could be mean if he wanted it. In one case, when asked to stay and help clean the basketball court, the options being either to stay or to "be an ass and leave," though indicating an inclination to the former. Additionally, while the game portrays him as a calm and decisive individual, there are scenes that show him to having limits as to how much tolerance he has. One example in particular being the decision to kill Namatame, as the dialogue choice "Calm the hell down!" can be shown, and when triggered, it demonstrates how he hardly ever shows to be this aggressive, as the Investigation Team gets surprised by his outburst at Yosuke.
