Persona 5 The Royal - Game Guide and Walkthrough

Acquiring Personas

In order to obtain a Persona, it is necessary to knock down all enemy shadows and cause a “hold-up” to occur. Here, you have two choices:

  1. “All-Out Attack” which attacks the entire enemy team at once
  2. “Talk” which allows the player to demand money, items, or for the shadow to join the player.

All of the talk options will require the player to go through a dialogue puzzle in order to receive the prize. This is a number of multiple choice speech options in an attempt to woo the confronted shadow.

About Negotiations and Conversations

When you talk to the shadow, take note of your level. Players can not convince shadows of a higher level than them to join their team. The conversations you have with them may seem to be random at times, but each persona has a specific topic. Answering correctly will reward the player with the reward they went after.

Persona Conversation Choices

In conversation, it is necessary to choose an appropriate reply based on the shadow’s personality. Choosing the right choice increases the probability that the shadow will join you.
This list has some correct choices for each shadow. If you know of other correct answers, please write them in the comment section below.
