A cheerful and jovial
detective, Adachi often serves as comic relief in the Persona 4 RPG. He
jokingly refers to himself as the 'slave' of Dojima, complaining of the
workload that his partner piles on him. Adachi also often accidentally (and
sometimes purposely) blurts out the police investigation results to the
Investigation Team, much to his own chagrin. He can be seen hanging around
Junes Department Store, usually planning to buy cabbages to cook for dinner.
His actions in public hide his normal thoughts and desires however.
(*SPOILER*) It turns
out that Adachi is the man the Investigation Team has been chasing all along.
Adachi was the one behind the mysterious murders of Mayumi Yamano and Saki
Konishi. Once the truth is revealed, Adachi shows his true colors as a
sadistic, misogynistic, misanthropic, and manipulative man, seeking to have
fun. He already knew how dangerous the world inside the TV was, and threw
Yamano into it anyway. He manipulated Taro Namatame into "saving"
the next victim before the murderer could get to her, all while hiding the
truth that he was behind the first two cases. He even said that he got a real
kick out of it when he threw that "Kubo kid" into the TV. He acts as
if everything was a game, and watched the events unfold. He doesn't seem to
care about the consequence of his actions. He also believes that there was
nothing great about the real world. It was just "dull and annoying as
hell" to him.

Adachi was a
straight-up dude until he went psycho. lol. He was such a low key and almost
boring character in Persona 4 that it was indeed a big surprise when he
turned out to be the killer. Yeah, sorry for the spoiler... but if you didn't
play through Persona 4 or Persona 4 Golden when it came out, you
missed the boat twice (and missed out on one of the best JRPGs ever).
Adachi's fighting game debut in P4A as a DLC character was... mediocre
I'd say. First of all because he was DLC. In any case, he's a boring dude in a
business suit... with a gun. (Not much to look at here.) However, the Persona
art style makes any character wearing anything look pretty swag... even boring
old Adachi. Other than that, Adachi's animations are entertaining at least.
Overall, he's obviously not one of the best or most exciting designs from the
series... but it makes sense he's in the game.
