Recommended Confidants to Max Out

This article contains the Recommended Confidants to Max Out in Persona 5 including the general usage, minimum Rank requirements, and the bonuses granted.

Recommended Confidants

When you Rank Up an Arcana’s Confidant, you will acquire Confidant Ability. These Abilities are useful both in the real world and during Palace Infiltrations. In the Real World, they vary from granting you more time to perform activities, up to efficiently earning Human Parameters. On the other hand, Ranking Up the Confidant could also influence activities performed in the Metaverse such as “Hold Up” effects, and EXP gained. Achieving a high Rank in one or more of the following Recommended Confidants helps with maximizing the time spent while doing Activities on both worlds.

Temperance Confidant – Sadayo Kawakami

The first recommended Confidant to Max out is the Temperance Confidant. It has a lot to do with activities concerning Free Time. Upon Ranking up to 3, it will allow you to avail 2 services from her namely: obtaining brewed Coffee, and Laundry Washing. These grant you additional time to perform more activities in the evening. Upon reaching Full Sabotage, this makes Kawakami become even more tolerant to your laziness in class, granting you additional time to perform Social Stat boosting activities.

Initiate at 5/24 after finishing the Second Dungeon to start this Confidant. With the Temperance Confidant, finishing a Palace Infiltration only consumes hours instead of changing to another day.

Death Confidant – Takemi Tae

With a low Rank Confidant, the number of items and discounts you obtain from Takemi Tae is limited to basic medical items, however the supplies will become more potent as you reach Rank 5. In addition, she will also sell helpful Accessories which can go for up to 100,000 Yen. If you rank up to 7, you can avail of these Accessories at half their prices.

Sun Confidant – Toranosuke Yoshida

Once you attain Rank 2, you will obtain the additional requests when using the “Negotiation Skill” in battle. If you further Rank up to 3, you will obtain the Confidant Ability “Support Money Gathering,” which grants you access to collecting an even bigger sum of money during a Hold Up. This allows you to farm even higher earnings during Palace Heists.

Moon Confidant – Yuuki Mishima

Yuuki Mishima’s Confidant influences Combat Effects. Even with the first half of Ranking up, reserve members who do not participate in battle will still garner Experience Points (EXP). This comes in handy when training Yusuke Kitagawa.

Fortune Confidant – Chihaya Mifune

Reaching the middle of the Rank up ladder provides a good payout for the Fortune Confidant. Although it might seem costly as the initial stage requires a fee of 100,000 yen, if you are in need of maximizing the gains from Human Parameters, this Confidant becomes useful in the long run.

This particular Confidant helps bolster Human Parameters that are difficult to increase by normal means.

Awakened Persona

By raising the Confidant of an ally in the Infiltration to maximum, it results in unlocking the Awakened Persona, a more powerful Persona than the previous one. In this game, the Persona does not become stronger during the events of the Main Mission, thus it’s recommended to perform these activities during the idle time.

It’s a great list, but when torn between 2 confidant to level, go with those that you have matching persona on. U get more points per session and it eventually cuts down the amount of times u need to hang with them.


I would definitely add the girl that plays shogi on the church, her confidant let you change party members during battles.


and the escape abilities are very useful when you are under leveled


Great. I’m new to this game and ya’ll got the goods. ????
