Persona 5 - The Chariot Confidant – Ryuji Sakamoto [Persona 5/ P5]

Detailed guide for the Chariot Arcana. Will update this as we go along. Will also translate the Japanese as soon as the English comes out.

The Chariot confidant has Ryuji Sakamoto as its representative in Persona 5. He can be a bit of a delinquent but becomes the protagonist's friend.

This is a Persona 5 confidant guide for the Chariot Arcana.

Ryuji Sakamoto Confidant Guide


Commonly known as the troublemaker in school, Ryuji Sakamoto is often isolated from the other students. He is known for his disruptive behaviour which gives him a bad reputation with the teachers. However, prior to that, Ryuji was a star athlete. This came to an end, however, when Kamoshida dashed his dreams. The teacher overtrained him, resulting in Ryuji sustaining a heavy injury.

Despite his delinquent behaviour, Ryuji is upbeat and easy going. He is similar to Junpei Iori from Persona 3 and also Yosuke Hanamura from Persona 4. However, his dress code is similar to that of Kanji Tatsumi from Persona 4.
