Persona 5 Royal - Mementos Overview and Features

An overview on Mementos and its features in Persona 5 / Persona 5 Royal. This includes the dungeon's different paths, rest areas, and secret encounters.

Persona 5 / Persona 5 Royal - Mementos Entrance


A massive dungeon, Mementos offers missions to capture human hearts. Navigating the dungeon utilizes Morgana’s unique bus transformation to move from one section to the next. In the initial stages, Mementos serves as a favorable place for grinding EXP and as an avenue for initiating optional missions outside of the main story. The sections of the dungeon are divided as “paths” connected to each other with train tracks, while chains and bars cover the outer areas akin to a prison cell.

As the date rolls over to 5/7, the main story will require you to infiltrate Mementos for the first time. The second visit happens during Yuuki Mishima’s request. Subsequent visits will then become voluntary.

Weather Condition Effects

Specific weather conditions spread certain status ailments to Shadows that inhabit Mementos. This can put the team into a good position while doing certain encounters, such as in the case of boss fights.

Morgana Bus

Bear in mind that you cannot perform a cover while navigating the dungeon, since everyone will be aboard the bus. You can take shortcuts when going through certain areas.

  • The Morgana bus is the chief mode of transportation
  • Homes found are accessible regardless of which area you are currently in
  • Certain locations such as the Entrance, Waiting Room, and “depths” provide an opportunity to build shortcuts
  • To go back to the real world, you can pass through the Mementos Dungeon entrance

Appearance of Reapers

If a player stays in a single area for too long, the Reaper will appear. The Reaper is a very powerful shadow that requires heavy preparation to defeat. The fight cannot be escaped, so encountering the Reaper can be an automatic game over in the earlier levels of the game. When the Reaper emerges, the sound of chains will rattle throughout the floor. It is highly recommended to escape to another area as soon as the chains are heard.

Should the player defeat the Reaper, they will receive a large sum of experience along with rare items. You will also earn a trophy if you defeat one.
