I kinda feel Jokers and Crow's names kinda reflect off each other or shouldve been switched..Joker looks more of a crow while Crow is looks more like a "Joker" that dumb mask lmao ..Unless that was the intention. Anyone else pick up on other small things throughout the story?

The reason Akechi only had his core persona and one other (Justice: Robin Hood) despite being a Wild Card and having the same potential was because Joker was the closest thing he had to a meaningful connection with someone. He wasn't just Joker's Justice Social Link, Joker was HIS Justice Social Link as well!

Joker is wearing a jesters mask and Crow's mask has a beak

I understand, just Akechi's mask imo looks like a long nose, like a liar, a trickster.

Which fits “Crow” perfectly.

Anyway, the devs didn’t want to give away the “twist” (or so they say) so naming him after someone who was previously a villain in the series would have been too much of a giveaway.

クロウ Kurou = Crow.
The first two letter クロ Kuro which means black, fitting a dark nature

red face with long nose is usually associated with tengu, which represent arrogance and pride
one lore linked a tengu with vengeance where one was forced to abandon his throne, his rebellion failed, died in torment and became a vengeful tengu

Y'mean like how Ryuji asked Akechi why he picked Crow as a codename, despite crows being black and Akechi's outfit being all white? And Akechi mentioned it was to mislead his enemies? Y'know, like how it was mentioned in the game.

And Joker was given the name not in terms of a jester, but in terms of the playing card Joker.
Which... again, was pretty much mentioned by Morgana in Kamoshida's castle.

There is the idea that they made the twist on who the traitor was so obvious to make people not realize that Igor was an imposter all along, and was ALSO a traitor to Joker, and to the player.

I unfortunately read the "twist", of Akechi being the traitor before getting to it. And then read something about the Twins, but didn't fully explain it, so was kinda surprised. Although some of their confident talk hinted at it. The Igor part tho, had no clue at all til it happened. There was pretty much no clues or foreshadowing to it.
I'm triggered by you being triggered by everything. Suck it up cupcake.
