Persona 5 Scramble / P5S - Recommended Persona

Details on recommended persona in Persona 5 Scramble. Included are an overview, background, criteria, knowledge of attributes, and list of recommended Persona.

Overview

Role of the Persona

Each character is assigned a certain Persona with a unique set of skills. For example, Skull relies on Captain Kidd who excels in Electric types, Panther depends on Carmen who shines with Fire skills, and Fox utilizes Goemon who is adept with Ice type skills. Unlike the rest of the supporting cast, Joker is gifted with the ability to command one of many Persona. In that regard, instead of sticking to one role, Joker can work as a filler for virtually any team that’s missing a party member.

Criteria for choosing Joker’s Persona

The basis for selecting a Persona fit for the role depends on the following:

Level of versatility

Extremely versatile Persona are recommended since they can juggle between roles.

Ease of use

Persona that are easy to use make a good fit because they require little to no set up to excel in their assigned field. Examples of Persona include those that do not rely on technical bonus.

Understanding types

Categories

Weakness Resists
Null Absorb
Reflect

Apart from the above mentioned criteria, knowledge of attributes is key to surpassing battles. Learn about the enemy’s weaknesses and avoid using attributes that fall under the other categories. Conversely, bring Persona that have many resists and less weaknesses. If you can’t afford to use those Persona, choose ones that can cover the weakness of your teammate’s Persona.

Given his attribute composition, Arsene is a great choice against the Okinawa Jail boss.

Johanna shares a similar role to Goemon because of her attribute’s advantage over the Okinawa Jail shadows. Her nuclear skills can also save you from running out of SP.

Kyoto Jail

Goemon is an indispensable member even for the Kyoto Jail infiltration. Choose Goemon to square off against the Jail boss “Yutani.”

Another option is to use Valjean in the Kyoto infiltration. He has great control over the waves of shadows due to his expertise in Gun skills. On top of that, Valjean can also serve as an alternative against the “Yutani” boss fight.
