Showtime attacks are powerful team-up moves that characters can unleash in battle. They involve specific pairings of characters and are unlocked during the main story. Showtime attacks appear at the start of a party member’s turn. Unlike regular skills, these attacks do not consume HP or SP.
How to use
When available, the showtime attack pops up at the bottom middle of the screen. Use the touchpad button to trigger a Showtime Attack.
The protagonist has a unique Showtime attack that is unlocked after clearing the main story.

- Shadow is weak.

I believe (despite the comment below yours) that these are unmissable. They occur when the conditions listed above are met (and the dates are just general suggestions).
There are missable, I didn’t even know about hard/makoto showtime and I tried to get it in the 3rd semester, it won’t give it to me anymore. Get these showtimes before 3rd semester
Can I only unlock these on the specific date? Or can I unlock them a week later? I want Ryuji/Makoto’s showtime attack, I fear having to redo the entire palace for it.
Bro I’m hecka confuse on how I never unlocked morgana’s and haru’s hangout. Did this happens to anyone else?

does both party members need to be present to perform the showtime?
No, both party members do not have to be present. Just one of them.
I did the same thing in sumure and no show time
Joker doesn’t get a solo showtime.
this truly puts a frown on my face
Such a shame, they could’ve integrated it into the story fight as well as you fight Maruki’s evolved persona. It didn’t have to be much, but it would’ve been nice, maybe a recreation of what happened when they fought Yaldabouth and Joker revealed his true persona?
