Since there are many topics on this board by first-timers claiming they got a bad ending and that they need assistance to get the correct one, I thought I would make this guide to help them out.

Note: I will try my hardest to make this guide spoiler-free, but there are circumstances where this will be impossible. These moments of impossibility will go under spoiler tags. These tags WILL include MASSIVE spoilers. You have been warned.



There are 7 endings in Persona 4 Golden. Their names, the date in which they occur, what transpires in them, and how to obtain them will be listed below.

Bad Ending 1: Nanako dies, Namatame is thrown into the TV world, Teddie leaves.
Date: December 3rd

How to obtain: On December 3rd, when prompted by Yosuke, select "Push the bastard in".




Bad Ending 2: Nanako lives, Namatame isn't thrown into the TV world, Teddie leaves.
Date: December 3rd

How to obtain: On December 3rd, when prompted by Yosuke, select "I can't stay here".




Bad Ending 3: Nanako lives, true killer is not identified.
Date: December 5th

How to obtain: On December 3rd, when prompted by Yosuke, select these responses in the following order:

1. Wait a second here...
2. We're missing something.
3. Namatame's true feelings.
4. Something's been bothering me.
5. We're missing something...
6. Calm the hell down!


On December 5th, select the wrong person when prompted three times.

Instead of bumping, why not request a sticky?

Well, if anyone thinks this is helpful, then they can request a sticky if they want. I obviously can't do it with my own post though.

Yes, you can get a new game plus on ANY of these endings. Note however, if you plan on fighting the secret super boss(that you can only fight on a new game plus), then you must have obtained at least the true ending on your first playthrough.

Golden Ending's instructions in the guide you wrote is missing the pretty important detail that you have to also do the following thing: clear the bonus dungeon that is unlocked on February 13 if Aeon is maxed and you said that you would go to save Marie, not caring about the danger .
