Besides for being a Persona user, Junpei also uses two-handed swords, making him be a main physically-oriented ally throughout the game. The two-handed sword was a specialized and effective infantry weapon, and was recognized as such in the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries. Below are a few facts about the two-handed swords found by writings in Coe et al, pg. 48).
➾ The two-handed swords are very large (measuring 60-70 in/150-175 cm). However, as hefty as it looks, it only ends up weighing something of the order of 5-8 lbs/2.3-3.6 kg.Junpei's two-handed sword has a:
➾ In the hands of the Swiss and German infantrymen it was lethal weapon, and its use was considered as special skill, often meriting extra pay.
➾ Fifteenth-century examples usually have an expanded cruciform hilt, sometimes with side rings on one or both sides of the quillon block. This was the form which remained dominant in Italy during the sixteenth century.
➾ Two-handed swords typically have a generous ricasso to allow the blade to be safely gripped below the quillons and thus wielded more effectively at close quarters.
➾ Triangular or pointed projections, known as flukes, were added at the base of the ricasso to defend the hand.
Property of Slash,Unfortunately, Junpei tends to get outclassed in the later stages of the game as his secondary skills just don't measure up to those offered by two other allies: Aigis, for support, and Koromaru, for Fire spells. He'll continue to be a good bet for physical attacks, but that's about it. He does have great regenerative potential, however. All you need to do is combine Spring of Life with an Omega Badge and he'll be able to automatically regain 15-20% of his HP each turn. Like I said, though, his hardiness doesn't really do much in terms of extending to other allies.

Although your female character is unable to fall in love with Junpei, and Junpei is unable to fall in love with her, you are able to have a great friendship. Junpei is a bit 'socially awkward' and makes comments of feeling happy around you, feeling like you are easy to talk to. However, Junpei is with Chidori during P3P as well as the normal games, and therefore your social link is unable to be romantic. During some point of his social link, Junpei found out someone was taking candid photos of the female protagonist, and he subsequently helps her find the culprit. When his S.Link is maxed, Junpei will give the female protagonist a pig key holder, an item he used to keep his house keys. Since he moved to the dorm, he had kept his house keys on his person, due to the circumstances involving his father.
