Daisoujou (Hierophant)

Daisoujou Persona Overview

Daisoujou is the strongest Light Persona in the game, having access to the extremely powerful instant death Light skills Hamaon and Samsara. The chance to wipe out targets using these abilities is further boosted by Hama Boost, allowing Daisoujou to wipe out the entire enemy team as well as certain mini bosses that are not immune to the instant death effect.

Leveling up Daisoujou to 58 grants it Null Dark which completely eliminates its weakness to Dark skills. This means that Dark-type instant death skills will not affect Daisoujou himself.

Alice (Death)

Alice Persona Overview

Alice is the game’s best Dark Persona who uses a unique (uninheritable) Dark skill that can trigger instant death to all enemies in battle. Her ability to wipe out foes in a flash is further increased thanks to Mudo Boost which she learns at level 62.

These skills essentially make her the Dark-type counterpart to Daisoujou, though Alice also boasts access to useful debuffs, an SP drain attack, and being able to reflect Dark skills rather than nullifying them.

Despite her superior utility over Daisoujou, Alice does not have any convenient means to go around her weakness to Light damage. Because of this, you will need to resort to using Skill Cards and gear to protect Alice from Light-based attacks, especially those that apply instant death.

Odin (Emperor)

Odin Persona Overview

The strongest Electric Persona Odin uses its fearsome Thunder Reign attack to deal massive Electric damage to a single target. The skills also has a good chance to apply Shock that can shut down the enemy’s actions to stall them in battle.

Odin gains even more damage output upon learning Elec Amp at level 60, making him a force to be respected even by bosses with Elec resistance.

For dealing with groups of Shadows, Odin can throw out Maziodyne which is not as powerful as Thunder Reign but is capable of applying Shock to an entire enemy team.

Odin also has Spell Master that halves SP consumption for magic skills. This allows him to constantly spam his fearsome Electric attacks and keep the pressure going for longer before the foe can reapply buffs or use healing skills in battle.

Thor (Chariot)

Thor Persona Overview

Thor is one of the best attackers overall during the late-game stages with its extremely powerful all-target Strike skill Gigantic Fist while having an option to deal high Elec damage with Ziodyne. His damage output further goes up with Heavy Master and Elec Amp, solidifying his role as an offensive monster in any team.

In addition to Thor’s tremendous damage potential, he also has the valuable Auto-Matarukaja skill that sets up an attack buff for the party at the start of battle.

Lastly, Thor can even stack additional damage outside of his turn with High Counter that has a reliable chance to activate when he is about to be hit with Physical attacks.

Surt (Magician)

Surt Persona Overview

Surt is the best Persona for dealing the most single-target Fire damage, owing to its fearsome Ragnarok skill. Surt enjoys a wide arsenal of offensive abilities that target one ore more enemies with Physical and Magic damage. These traits allow him to make quick work of most regular enemies encountered during the late-stages.

Getting Surt also affords you the benefit of getting its Blazing Flame Heart Item via Conception. This is an extremely useful item for Mitsuru as it can nullify Fire damage, essentially eliminating her weakness to it in battle.
