Persona 5 / Persona 5 Royal - Charm Guide

Guide on how to increase the social stat Charm in Persona 5 / Persona 5 Royal. Included is an overview and the activities that raise Charm.


Charm influences your confidant relationships. Some events like acing exams will give plenty of charm, but these can’t be forced to repeatedly occur. The bulk of activities that boost this parameter appear outside of class, so you need to explore. A visit to the local bathhouse will grant some charm, however, you can’t earn bonus points every day. For a sure fire way to earn a huge boost, you need to time your visit for when it’s raining. Like other social stats, Charm can also be obtained from universal sources like the Big Bang Burger Challenge, reading certain books, and ordering a specific item on the diner’s menu. The purpose of raising Charm is to gain access to higher confidant ranks such as the Death Confidant and Priestess Confidant.
