Bugs and Glitches [Persona 5/ P5]

Bugs and Glitches

Bugs happen all the time in gaming. If anything, especially if you download it, bugs can destroy your gameplay. But no need to fret, there are some people who may have the same problem and managed to fix it.


When chatting with other players, there are some house rules to follow.

  • Respect other people’s opinions.
  • Help out those who are new to Persona. Not all of us are some Major League players. There are some who haven’t played the game before.
  • CYBER BULLYING IS A NO-NO. We are promoting a friendly community.
  • Please don’t be afraid to ask questions. There will always be someone willing to help you.
  • Most of all, have fun.

Persona 5 is a pretty big game. Along with the added mechanics, this can be quite difficult especially for those not familiar with the mechanics of the game. Besides, we, the Samurai Gamers, would like to promote good camaraderie among players. So, don’t forget – enjoy!

It’s not something big, but it is a little annoying. At the victory screen after you defeat a shadow, when Joker starts to run his animation freezes for two seconds. It looks funny the first few times, but after a while it just gets a little bit frustrating.

Help meeee

In Futabas palace when I press the button to open the coffin that has the button inside it. The coffin doesn’t open when I interact with it.


When I start the game and the 1 from the cinematic of the 20 years of persona appears my game just freezes, somebody knows what to do? I have over 30 hours of game-time and it would be a same to lose all my progress


I can’t begin the Star confidant with Hifumi at all. Got any ideas on how to fix that?

i stuck at okumura palace when i use the 2nd elevator to go down the animation and music stil on but i cant move or do anything.


I can’t advance the Strength Confident. I have Hecatonchieres with the right ability (I’ve checked multiple times) on me, but it never triggers the dialogue. Any solutions?


Have you tried exiting and coming back, if not you could always see if you have a very recent save


so I’m almost done my second play threw but for some reason I can’t fuss for satan it always saying fusion impossible no matter wat combinations I try anybody knw war to try


Try shiva/stone of scone


On 5/9, the day we can start freely going to mementos, when I hang out with Takemi for the Confidant scene where we help a sick girl brought in, the game stalls at her second visual cut-in.
What’s wrong? Is the day bugged? That scene specifically? It stalls to the point that pressing the PS button and returning has the screen darken and the loading clock at the top run forever, and all I can do it shut off the PS3 manually. Any help?


so when im anywhere the game locks up, i cant do anythig with the controller. Everything is still working, my controller is charged, the game is moving and making noise its just i cant do anything to keep the game moving its stuck in a moment. It locks up and it stays like this for about 10 or so minutes them the moment continues as if nothing, ive seen a couple of videos of this they call it a “soft lock” and im wondering if theres any way of preventing this from happening from now on?


‘Debunking the Psychic’- request by Chihaya completely bugged. Doesn’t appear in the request and spot where he appears is locked. Any solution?


Similar problem as Yasendai’s. I use the latest build of rpcs3 for US version persona 5. In Shido’s Palace, when confronting Akechi Goro, the game just freezes after he summon Cu Chulain and Cerberus and berserker them. The audio, animation and fps still works but won’t proceed. Similar things happens all over the game when for example, defeating enemies, opening locked cases, and so on. Please help! Thanks!

Nifty CheshireCat

I completed the Bank Palace in Persona 5 on the PS4 but it did not unlock the achievement associated with it.


In Mementos, Path of Chemdah, every single time I try to go to Area 5 ( rest ), it gives me an infinite loading screen, I’ve had to run through all 4 areas, 6 times to get to area 5 and each time I get infinite loading screen. So I cleaned the disc an even uninstalled and reinstalled the game and the same thing happened again. Does anyone know how to fix this? Because at this point I won’t be able to advance in mementos until the problem is resolved.


Same after the first mementos infiltration there’s a certain line in “IM” which causes my game to freeze (the first time I encountered this bug I forgot to save so I had to defeat kamoshida again.


Same as mine have you found out a fix yet?


same problem here, were you able to fix it?


Persona 5 ps3 my game freezes at may 7 night after first run in Mementos any way how to fix?


Same, my game freezes at a specific line at the IM after the memento run. Can anyone help us?

Same here.

A Frustrated Completionist

I’m having a hard time making the Mask Collector trophy to pop up, I have my compendium at 100% and when I enter the velvet Room the twins tell me that I’ve completed it but no trophy


I’m starting up a NG+ on merciless difficulty where I want all the edge I can get. My equipment transferred over but I’m the only one hitting 190+ melee damage while my teammates who have stronger melee weapons (220+) are hitting for 59 and 48 in enemies in the first palace. Why? What am I the only one dealing major damage while they hit so weak?


Their persona are weak unlike yours


After grinding the crap out of Komoshida’s castle in hard difficulty I lost 30,000 yens randomly when I back to my room in the game. I just saw -30,000 pop up all of a sudden and did not know what to think of it. Up to this day i’m upset about it though. Is this a glitch?


Were you skipping cutscenes? There’s a scene where the Phantom Thieves eat dinner, and that costs 30,000 yen. So that’s probably what it was.


Why in 5th dungeon, when haru awakening the animation freeze?


My characters faces disappears whenever they use their personas how do I Fix it?


Sometimes after I answer a teacher’s question in class, the game pauses for a while and then keeps going. The first time it happened, it was after the question about chronostasis and I thought it was funny because of the coincidence. A DNS error box popped up and the game continued, but it happened again for a few seconds. Anyone else experience this?


Probably just an Internet issue


It’s is boi

A fan of Persona

Hi all who read this, I have an issue when it comes go my copy of persona 5, I downloaded persona 5 from psn for the PS3, so no I can’t get a refund or trade it or a different copy of it, and it is just so slow… when I encounter any loading screen it can vary between 20-50 seconds of waiting before I can play. Dialogue boxes can be seen however the voice actor/actresses can’t be heard until around a minute of waiting and even then it stops and starts randomly and can take up to 5 minutes… Read more »

P.P.S I do have downloaded content but these issues occurred beforehand as I downloaded the free content except the Japanese audio dlc hoping that maybe it fixed it for some reason

Nvm I managed to fix it


Hello a fan of persona I have done the exact same thing by downloading the game from psn store unfortunately the game freezes as the white train windows are coming across the screen before the main menu therefore I cannot even play the game. You said above that you fixed the problem please tell me how as it has also become unbearable for me. I have uninstalled and re downloaded the game 6 times now and nothing changes.


Just wondering but whenever I get in a fight when Ann is in the party, her weapon does not resemble a whip. When I go to attack it shows up during her animation attack then goes back to looking like a knife of some sort. Has anyone experienced this? Or is it just part of the game?


Some of Ann’s whips are actually telescoping blades (like Ivy’s from Soul Caliber).
