Persona 5 / Persona 5 Royal - Velvet Room – Lockdown Guide

Guide for Lockdown in Persona 5 / Persona 5 Royal. Included is an overview, guidelines, restrictions, and how to unlock the trophy.


The Lockdown mechanic is a new feature in Persona 5. When they put a persona in lockdown, the persona is “locked” inside a cage and learn new passive abilities. This is useful for persona you need to use as fusion materials, especially when fulfilling Justine and Caroline’s requirements.

How to Unlock

To unlock Lockdown, you need to raise your Strength Confidant to Rank 3.


It will take some time for a persona in Lockdown to complete training. Training time depends on the the rank of the Confidant that the Persona is associated with. Therefore, if you wish to have your Persona learn passives quickly, you need to work on their confidant. If your persona’s corresponding confidant is still low, it would take them five days to finish.

The Persona that is stored will learn a passive skill to cover one weakness. If the Persona has several weaknesses, training will help it learn to cover one of them. While it is rare, the Persona can also learn other passive skills that do not cover its weaknesses. To prevent this from happening, you can lower the chance of it learning an unwanted passive by raising the Persona’s confidant rank.

Once you raise your Strength Confidant to Rank 8, the Persona will start to learn new passive skills.

Restrictions and deadline

When using Lockdown, Personas will only learn skills. That being said, it may sometimes be an obstruction. Because it’s put in a cage, you can’t use it in combat nor can you replace it when you have full stock. It might, therefore, appear more as a place holder and a waste of space. If you wish to use the Lockdown system, try using it when you’re just running from place to place. As you do so, the days pass by and the persona may gain more passive skills.

Keep in mind that putting a persona in lockdown will also have a deadline. Caroline will send you a notification on your phone a day before the Persona perishes. If you fail to retrieve them in time, they will be lost forever.

How to Unlock the Trophy

You need to deposit a Persona in lockdown and have it complete its training to learn a new passive. Go back and take out the Persona to earn the trophy.
