In order to strengthen a particular persona, you need to sacrifice another persona from your stock. Before that, make sure that you’ve updated your current persona stock in the compendium and also saved the game.

From your persona stock, choose the persona you want to strengthen. Strengthening is in terms of increasing its level and unlocking its other innate skills in the game. As an example, we choose “Hecantoncheires” as the persona we will strengthen.

Next, we will choose the persona to sacrifice. You can choose any persona you want to sacrifice but if you desire for more than one level increase, you need to pick a high level persona. Picking a high level persona also costs money if you don’t have it in your stock. As an example, we choose “Emperor’s Amulet” as the persona we will sacrifice.

Persona 5 / Persona 5 Royal - Velvet Room Gallows New Skill

The persona we strengthened will also receive a new special skill inherited from the sacrificed persona. Sometimes, you may end up sacrificing a persona that already learned skill so it is very important to save prior to execution.

Also, this feature has certain limitations. One particular limitation is the number of persona you can sacrifice to it. Since the persona can only take so much, a persona can only take one persona sacrifice a day. If you sacrifice any more than that, it will explode due to its inability to accept the influx of power.

Factors the Affect the Gallows Execution

Here are the factors the influence the level boosts and the skills obtained during a Gallows execution:

  • The level of the sacrificed persona. The higher the level, the more experience boost it receives.
  • If both personas share the same Arcana.
  • The level of the confidant associated with the strengthened persona’s Arcana.
  • If the sacrificed persona is a treasure persona.
  • If the sacrificed persona is a mutation persona (in P5R only).
  • If the Gallows execution occurred during a Fusion Alarm (in P5R only).
