Confidant List and Recruitment Guide in Persona 5 Royal

Over the course of Persona 5 Royal, the Protagonist can unlock a Social Link or Confidant belonging to an Arcana. As the player advances a Confidant’s level, it will give access to its unique confidant skills. With female confidants, spending time with them is insufficient to raise their rank. To guarantee that they will rank up when you spend time with them again, you must buy and give them gift items.

Persona 5 Royal Female Confidant Gift List and Guide

Note that raising the Confidant level of female characters will unlock a romantic relationship with them, allowing you to view special events. It is even possible to achieve a romantic state with all possible partners during a playthrough which results in a unique and humorous special event.

    • Guessing that they hit the “-” key instead of “0” when making the guide as they are right next to each other.

  1. Just a suggestion: Alongside the unlock date you should have a column noting whether or not a confidant becomes unavailable for an extended time or must be maxed by a certain date. It could help with prioritization for those not wanting to miss out on a certain character or not wanting to rigidly follow a guide.

  2. You should update with what requirements are needed to unlock (charm for Hifumi, Guts for Iwai, etc.), I find myself worried I don’t know if I’m building my stats right!!
