I was playing SMT4:Apocalypse the battery light turned red so I saved the game. The save went fine. I came back from the Fairy forest to the underground area. The light was flashing I explored.and checked my team data. I was not near the charging cord so I let the system die. I have done this lots of times.

I later charged my system. I turned on the system then clicked on SMT4:A and got the corrupted save file error. Meaning the save file was gone.

I have a physical copy of the game. Is this a bad copy or can letting the system die cause a corruption error? I would understand if I was saving when system died but I was not.

I lost four hours playtime.

Do you alternate save slots or just keep overwriting the same one?

Does the game have auto-saves? maybe that was the cause, but those cases are extremely rare nowadays, that aside, letting the system die can be harmful to the battery.

I'm more astonished you got four hours of playtime on a red light.

No I had four hours playing time total. A red light to the end for me gives me maybe 12 to at most 15 minutes more of playing time.
