Persona 5 Royal - Persona Negotiation Dialogue Choices Guide

Persona Negotiation Dialogue Choices Guide in Persona 5 Royal

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.

  1. For Nue, act the opposite. I believe the right answers are “I don’t want to eat you” and “I don’t want you”

  2. This list is terrible, It doesn’t help, ive tried 5 times to get the inugami and all this list says is “I’m sour for lunch” Which isnt even one of the options i get

    • this is a rough translation from the JP version, so you have to take things with a grain of salt here. Some people are also offering edits in the comments.

      The personality guide helps a bit, but I get what you’re saying. That guide doesn’t tell you which option reflects which personality/response, and there is no way to tell without going through some trial and error experimentation.

      With that said, I have found this guide to be quite helpful as a whole. However, I approched my playthrough with the mentality of “if I get all the baby personas in Kamoshida’s palace, I can just use those as building blocks for the stronger ones later on, or fill in the gaps in my compendium.”

      It worked for me perfectly as I have all personas available to my current level (22). I know that if I miss one later, I can just fuse for it. So IMO, don’t sweat the capturing too much.
