WOOOO TRIPLE POST TIME

Dunno if you watch any anime but I have noticed a distinct similarity between Persona 5 and JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders. In the anime all of the main characters, good and bad, are tied to the different tarot cards like Sun/Star/Hanged Man/Emperor, etc, and their powers are this invisible creatures that stand behind them and attack for them and can't be seen by normies. Several of the bad guys in the anime are converted to the good side by removing a small parasite from their forehead that changes their cognition. Also in the overall JoJo narrative, the magic power they all have comes from an energy called Hamoan, which is a bless instakill move in P5. Kinda weird how much they align.

Another excellent reference in P5 I noticed was when Yusuke rearranges Futabas rip-off power rangers action figures into the Ginyu Force pose from Dragon Ball Z, and then the next question you get when school is available after the break is about King Kamehameha and what he is holding in his hand in a statue of him and one of the answers is "A Dragon Ball".

Excellent.
