Fusion requests can be fulfilled at any point in the game’s story but cannot be fully completed before reaching Niijima Palace. It is advised to finish up all the requests before entering the lowest path of Mementos or before facing the Depths of Mementos boss.

Any persona that you encounter in cognitive palaces can later be found in Mementos. You can either negotiate or fuse other personas in order to acquire them and add them to your Persona Compendium.

  1. Clotho (Fortune) and Stone of Scone (Fortue) does not make Lachesis. It’s Clotho (Fortune) and Regent (Emperor). You should change that.

  2. For lvl 10 seth-high counter
    If you have the DLC personas you can fuse together
    DLC Kaguya Picaro(25) with high counter &
    Asterus Picaror (62)
    If you dont mind fusing the high lvl persona its atleast free and easy if you haven’t used them yet

    • To get a Seth with High Counter you can also itemize an Orlov treasure demon during a Velvet Room alarm to get a High Counter skill card.

  3. Principality (Justice) and Yaksini (Empress) do *NOT* Ame no Uzume. They make Kushinada-Hime (42 / Lovers). Kushinada-Hime is needed for Lachesis. You might want to fix that.

  4. For the P5R Twin Wardens Fusion request, Level 10 Seth with High Counter. In Option #2, Just fuse Cerberus with High Counter with Decarabia to get a Horus with High Counter. Then, combine with the others to get the Seth with High Counter.

  5. I am having a real hard time trying to fuse Horus. Apparently, the fusion calculators for Horus is completely different for the Royal version. You should update this guide to reflect the changes.

    By the way, does anyone know how to get a Horus in the Royal version without me chasing down a treasure demon? Again, all of the fusion calculators available seem to assume the fusions are the same P5R. They are not, at least for Horus.

  6. For Seth with High Counter, you can also itemize Ose during an alarm fusion session. It normally gives you counter but alarm upgrades it to high counter so you don’t have to go through so many steps

  7. What happens if you miss an outing event? Like if you miss the one where you go to the museum can you not go to leblanc later?

    • you can access any event (though they are ordered) at any time with the exception of the specific timed ones (beach, museum, and underground mall)

  8. Do you get any Confidant Stat Boost during these Special Prison event? I mean does answering Caroline & Justice’s question really matter or not? I’m curious to know if you get points from escorting them outside the Velvet Room.

  9. For the Strength confidant in P5R, Group Guillotine is at Level 1, Lockdown is at Level 3 and Special Treatment is at Level 5. Guillotine Booster is at Level 8 now.

    Have Special Treatment at Level 5 basically breaks the game, so you might want to refrain from abusing this ability to make the game fair

  10. I’m confused about the special prison events. Are we not allowed to do Miura Beach, Museum, and Shibuya Station Underground Mall at all? Does doing one lock out Lavenza’s event? Or are those three optional?

  11. For the rank 10 request, you can fuse Cerberus, which learns High Counter at lvl 57, with Horus to get a Skadi with High Counter. Then, fuse the Skadi with a Silky to get an Isis with High Counter.
