Persona Fusion Explained
Persona Fusions involve creating a new Persona by merging two more Personas in the Velvet Room. You can create personas that is a higher level that its components, but its level cannot exceed the Protagonist’s current level.
“Normal Fusion” or “Dyad Guillotine” requires the fusion of two Personas from the Protagonist’s stock. When you select two Personas, information about the new Persona that will be born will be displayed. After confirming the fusion, you can now choose which skills you want the new Persona to Inherit
In Persona 5 Royal, Personas now have a new separate special skill that automatically activates at the start of the battle. This is called a “Trait” and you can choose which Trait to inherit during a normal fusion. You can choose from the two Persona components or the original Trait of the newly created Persona.
How to Gain Bonus Experience for Fusions
If you have made a deal with a Confidant of the same arcana as the Persona you are creating, the Persona will gain additional experience after the fusion. The higher the confidant rank, the more bonus experience is gained.
“Advanced Fusion” or “Group Guillotine” is type of Persona Fusion where you create a special Persona from a specific set of Persona components. These Personas are not obtainable through Normal Fusion. When you choose to make a Persona from this category, you will see which Personas are needed for the fusion. Remember that you can fuse for these Personas even if they are not available in your stock.
Persona Fusion Mechanics
The level of the Persona that you will create is dependent on the average of the two Persona Components’ base levels. The base level is the lowest possible level that a Persona can be have.
For example, if you fuse an Orobas (Hierophant Arcana) that has an initial level of 17 with Anzu (Hierophant Arcana) with an initial level of 25, you will get an average of 21. In this case, you will obtain a level 22 Phoenix (Hierophant Arcana,) since it is the closest to the resulting average of 21. (17 + 25 )÷ 2 = 21
However, it’s important to note that a Persona used in the combination cannot be the result of the fusion. This means that the resulting Persona will be one that possesses a base level that is lower than both of the Persona used in the combination. For example, if you combine a High Pixie (Fool Arcana) that has a base level of 16 and an Obariyon (Fool Arcana) that has a base level of 8, you will get a resulting average of 12. Since 12 is equally close to the base level of Obariyon (base level 8) and Pixie (base level 16) which were used as ‘materials’ in the combination, you cannot get an Obariyon or a High Pixie. The resulting Persona then is one that has a base level lower than both Obariyon (8) and High Pixie (16), the closest of which being Arsene (1).
