Persona 5 Best Personas Early Game - Persona 5 Beginners Guide

This beginner's guide of the best early personas might be incomplete. It's based on my own experience and I might have missed something or maybe said something wrong. If that's the case, feel free to add your opinion in the comments below.

You can use pretty much whatever you want without following these tips. I play just by randomly forging whatever I don’t already have to complete my collection. Just make sure you have a good variety of elements and skills.

Get some debuffs for when you face bosses. (ATK & AGI debuffs). It’s not necessary but will make your life easier against bosses. For example, the earliest ATK debuff you can get is at level 4 from Bicorn.

Obariyon (level 8) has Snap, Sukunda and learns Lucky Punch at level 9. Snap is a Gun dmg skill and Sukunda is AGI debuff. Lucky Punch is very very useful as it has high critical rate. You can use it to bring down enemies for which you don’t have strong element against or they don’t have weaknesses. It also works against enemies that resist physical attacks, but it will not work against enemies that block/repel physical attacks (unless they have statuses like freeze)

Andras (level 10) learns Apt pupil at level 13, a passive which increases critical rate. Along with lucky punch, you will do criticals very often

Onmoraki (level 12) learns Pulinpa and confusion boost at 15. It’s useful for money farming (guide here:

Makami (level 15) has Frei (nuclear dmg). I think it’s the first persona to have it and you won’t find many others, so take it in case you find someone weak to Nuclear

Ippon-Datara (level 13) is strong to Fire, Blessing and Curse and repels Wind while only weak to Ice. Also he learns Rampage at 15 which is a nice AoE physical attack for early phases

MATADOR (level 19) BEST EARLY GAME PERSONA. Learns Swift Strike at level 20 (3-4 light phys damage to all enemies). The damage output is huge and to put it into perspective, Ryuuji (Captain Kid), which is your main physical damage dealer at the beginning, learns Swift Strike at level 32, which is basically 2 palaces later. Just get this persona.

Suzaku (level 19) learns Speed Master at level 23, a passive that applies AGI bonus (Accuracy/Evasion) at the beginning of the battle. Combine it with Matador’s Swift Strike to miss less.

Shiki-Ouji (level 21) BLOCKS physical/gun damage and is the perfect early recipient for Swift Strike + Speed Master. You need to fuse Suzaku with Jack-o-Lantern to make Orobas and then fuse Orobas with Matador. Shiki-Ouji’s only weakness is Nuclear and there aren’t many nuclear enemies while there are lots of physical enemies.

Phoenix (level 22, Feng Huang in the calculator) learns Recarm at level 25 (Revive ally). Very useful in case you don’t want to farm money for revive items.

Anzu (level 25) small mention because of Masukukaja (AGI buff to whole party)

Principality (level 29) learns Mediarama at level 31 (moderate heal to party), Morgana’s Zorro learns it at 34

Setanta (level 28) learns Charge at level 34. Charge increases your damage of your next physical attack by 2.5x. It will still be a core skill at the end of the game.

Neko Shogun (level 30) learns Invigorate 1 at level 31. 3 SP regen each turn

Persona 5 How to get the Strongest Skills in the game - Persona 5 Advanced Guide

Persona 5 Fusion Calculator:

Amazon Affiliate Link:

This is a guide on some of the strongest skills and strongest persona you can find in Persona 5. The list is based on my own experience with the game so you might disagree with some choices. Overall, I think you can play with any Persona you want and would still be ok as long as you have a good variety of skills.


SETH (51) has One Shot Kill (severe Gun dmg, high critical). Combine with Trigger Happy from Matador (Level 19, learns it at 22) or Hell Biker (Level 39, learns it at 43). For High Counter, fuse Dakini (50) with Pazuzu (43) to get Horus and then perform advanced fusion with Horus (49), Anubis (37), Thoth (36), Isis (26)

Pale Rider (53) learns Megidola at 54 (Heavy almighty damage), Evade Bless (triples evasion) at 57

Skadi (55) learns Repel Ice at 60. Apart from that, nothing special

Yatagarasu (57) learns Mediarahan at 59 (Full Party Heal) and Null Wind at 62 (Nullifies Wind DMG)

TRUMPETER (59) learns Debilitate at 65 (BEST Debuff in the game) and you can itemise it for Debilitate Skill Card

Lilith (60) learns Heavy Ice, Fire and Wind damage to all foes

Melchizedek (60) learns God’s Hand at level 67 (very strong single target Physical skill)

Moloch (60) learns Drain Fire at level 64 (you can inherit it to your personas that are weak to fire)

Nebiros (62) learns Megidolaon at level 68 (Severe Almighty DMG)

Seiryu (62) learns Repel Nuke at level 63

Quetzalcoatl (63) learns Regenerate 3 at 65 (Heals 6% HP every turn).

Yamata no Orochi (64) learns Unshaken Will at 69 (Immunity to all psychological statuses)

BLACK FROST (67) is one of the best personas in a first playthrough. No weaknesses, effective against 4 elements, strong skills and also can inherit Auto-Mataru from King Frost (64), which gives Attack Up to the whole party for 3 turns at the start of each battle. You can also fuse other skills you want into King Frost before making Black Frost

Throne (71) has Invigorate 3 (7 SP recovery per turn)

Mot (72) learns Repel Electric at 77 and is the only persona to have it.

CYBELE (73) is one of the best healers in the game and she learns Absorb Bless at 77. For her weakness to electricity, fuse Mot and any Sun persona around level 39-53 to make a Cybele with Repel Electricity

Mara (73) learns Firm Stance at 78 (No Evasion, but receive Half Damage). I don’t personally use it, but I put it in the list in case someone wants it

Abaddon (74) learns Drain Phys at 79 and Gigantomachia at 80 (very strong multitarget physical skill)

Baal (75) learns Ayamur at 80, a way stronger version of Miracle Punch and is the only Persona to have it (and you can’t inherit it to other Personas)

Ongyo-Ki (75) learns Arms Master at 77 (Half HP cost for Phys skills), but needs MAX Confidant Rank with Futaba. In case you don’t meet that requirement, Raphael (78) learns it at 83.

Raphael (78) also learns Heat Riser at 80 (ATK/DEF/AGI Buff to one ally)

Sandalphoon (75) learns Angelic Grace at 77 (Doubles Evasion against all elemental magic), but needs MAX Confidant Rank with Mishima. In case you don’t meet that requirement, Sraosha (80) learns it at 83

Futsunushi (76) has Ali Dance, which halves hit rate of all attacking enemies (works for entire party), but needs MAX Confidant Rank with Morgana (story-related, happens towards the end of the game). In case you don’t meet that requirement, Gabriel (77) learns it at 79

Kohryu (76) learns Spell Master at 82 (Half SP costs), but needs MAX Confidant Rank with Sojirou. In case you don’t meet that requirement, Uriel (81) learns it at 86

Kali (77) learns Drain Nuclear at 82, the only persona to learn it naturally

ALICE (79) is one of the best Magic Personas. She starts with very high stats in magic and agility, learns Megidolaon and Concentrate. Her only weakness is Bless, so fuse Cybele into either Nebiros or Belial and then inherit Absorb Bless. Needs MAX Confidant Rank with the Doctor

YOSHITSUNE (79) is one of the best physical damage dealers in the game. High Strength and is the only persona who can learn Hassou Tobi (Level 86, Deal 8 times weak damage to all enemies). You need MAX Confidant Rank with Morgana because one of the ingredients is Futsunushi (Magician)

I am stopping here, there are still strong Personas beyond level 80 but if you’re going that deep I don’t think you will need my help anyway. I have covered almost all of the best skills in the game anyway and there aren’t many skills that are obtainable only from Personas beyond level 80

Persona 5 | How To Make Perfect Personas

Q: Which Mementos Quests will the farm work on?

Q: Where can I find the fusion recipe for my Persona?

Q: How do I find out which Personas have the skills I need to transfer?

Q: What if my Persona gains too much EXP before fusing?

A: If it can be acquired in a Palace or Mementos then obtain it that way. It will have its default level and stats after the negotiation. If it cannot, you'll have to fuse it on another play-through or earlier save when your Confidant rank for its Arcana isn't as high.
Q: What if my level is too low to fuse the Persona I want...?

A: By completing the Strength Confidant (Velvet Twins), you'll be rewarded with the ability to fuse Personas with a higher level than your own. Thankfully it's possible to complete this Confidant in a single in-game day. Igor will request a fee for each fusion though. This ability really shines in the early game of NG+ (Ability Unlocks as soon as you begin the Strength Confidant, which is available as early as 5/18)
Q: How should I manipulate the stats for my build?

Physical Attacker - Focus on St, Ag, En (Dump leftovers in Lu)
Magic Caster - Focus on Ma, Ag, En (Dump leftovers in Lu)
Status Ailments - Focus on Lu, Ag, En (Dump leftovers in St)
Support User - Focus on Ag, En, Lu (Dump leftovers in St)

You'll have to get a little creative for anything that doesn't fall under those categories.
Q: What does each stat do?

St (Strength) - Effects damage of Physical Skills and Melee Attacks.
Ma (Magic) - Effects damage of Magic Skills
En (Endurance) - Effects how much damage is dealt to the player
Ag (Agility) - Effects Accuracy, Evasion, and Turn Order
Lu (Luck) - Effects Critical Rate, Ailment success, Money Thrown, etc
Q: Why do I need Regenerate/Invigorate?

A: They aren't mandatory, but they are insurance so that you never die or run out of SP during the money farm. You can always just use items to restore your HP and SP, or use a Persona to heal yourself. SP items are pretty rare in Persona 5 though, so I recommend at least using a Persona with Invigorate, or an SP Adhesive item from The Clinic
Q: How are the stats effected by the different highlights?

Let's say Ma, En, and Ag were highlighted. That means each stat will go up +1.

If TWO stats were highlighted, like Ma, and En, one will go up by +1 and the other will go up by +2. (Which stat gets what is random)

If ONE stat was highlighted, it will go up by +3
Q: Why can't I fuse Metatron?

A: You must complete the Justice Confidant (Akechi) and the Moon Confidant (Mishima) first. Justice levels up automatically throughout the story, so just make finishing the Moon confidant a priority
Q: Where can I find the Crystal Skull Treasure Demon?

A: Mementos Floors 7-9 and 11-13 of the Sheriruth area after clearing Shido's Palace. It can also be found in the Depths of Mementos, and final palace of the true ending. (Use the Treasure Trap Infiltration Tool to speed up the process)
Q: What if I keep running out of money?

A: As you fill up your Persona compendium the cost of all of your Personas will lower, allowing you to save more money per purchase. Make it a goal to complete the Persona compedium for the maximum discount on Persona purchasing.

Persona 5 Strikers - 15 Things You ABSOLUTELY NEED To Know Before You Buy

While it might be tempting to think of Persona 5 Strikers as yet another musou title reskinned for a popular property, Atlus and Koei Tecmo seemed to have really gone out of their way to make this as much of a true successor to Persona 5 as possible.

No, it doesn't have everything that a Persona game is expected to have, and yes, it still proudly wears its musou core on its sleeve, but more than almost any other musou crossover game released in recent years, Persona 5 Strikers looks like a game that can truly appeal to fans of the series it is spinning off from.

We're more than a little curious about the upcoming action RPG, and ahead of its upcoming launch, here, we'll be talking about the fifteen biggest talking points from the game you should know about.

Persona 5 (PS4) - Golden Finger Trophy Guide (Location of all Games and Tips to complete them)

To unlock this trophy you need to complete 6 different video games in game. For this trophy I suggest saving and reloading to be more efficient, you are not wasting multiple days on the same level of a game.

To begin with you need to purchase a TV and the vintage video game console, which can be bought starting late summer.

Things to buy at Second Hand Shop in Yongen-Jaya (Map point Unlocked during story):

1) TV
2) Vintage game console (Comes with the game Star Forneus which has 3 levels)
3) Gambla Goemon (game with 2 Levels)

Games to buy at The Retro Game Shop in Akihabara (unlocked by doing the Winners Don’t need Cheats Mementos Request):

1) Punch Out (3 levels)
2) Train of Life (3 levels)
3) Golfer Sarutahiko (3 levels)
4) Power Intuition (3 levels)

I strongly suggest getting the Game Secrets Book at the Shinjuku Bookstore, as reading it allows you to cheat in video games by either bypassing certain fail states, giving you more times, or giving you more retries in games. You will definitely need this for Power Intuition Level 3! The book only becomes available after you have played a video game at least once.

Star Forneus:

The game requires you to tap the X button a specific amount of times before the timer runs out. It’s a very simple game and all 3 levels are the same, with a slight difference being that you might have to press X more times as you get to higher levels, and there is less time to work with.

Punch Out:

This game requires you to tap buttons on the D-pad in a specific sequence and press X in the end to complete the sequence before time runs out. After getting the sequence right you need to tap X several times with a timer.

Level 1 has two rounds:

Round 1 – The sequence is:
Left, Right, Left, Right, X
Right after that you have tap X a few times.

Round 2 is the same as Round 1

Level 2 is the same as Level 1 but with less time on the timer

Level 3 has 3 Rounds:

Both Round 1 and Round 2 have the same sequence:
Up, Up, X

Round 3 – The sequence is long:
Left, Right, Left, Right, Up, Up, X.

Train of Life:

In this game, each level requires you to roll a dice and achieve specific numbers to pass. The number is the addition of the numbers on both dice that was rolled. This is a little luck based, and might require a few tries to complete.

Level 1 – need 8 or higher.
Level 2 – need 3, 5, 7, and 9.
Level 3 – need 4, 8, and 12

Gambla Goemon:

There are only two levels in this game, and the goal is to roll the dice and guess if the sum of numbers is even or odd.

Golfer Sarutahiko:

To complete this game you need to press X at the right moment when the cursor is close to the red line of the meter. You only get a few shots each level, so make sure to press X close to the red marker to succeed. There are 3 levels in the game but each level plays out exactly the same.

Power Intuition:

This is the most annoying game due to the final level. Both level 1 and 2 keep it simple, and level 3 just goes over 9000 suddenly.

Think of this game as a fighting game and each level you’ll have to do quarter circle motions on your d-pad and then press X to finish the sequence. The last round requires you to do a half circle motion, press right, and then X to finish it off.

Level 3 will be a platinum breaker for many, and can be frustrating at times.

Level 1 Sequence (will use navigation directions for controller buttons):

South, South East, East, X

Level 2 Sequence:

Round 1: South, South East, East, X
Round 2: South, South West, West, X

Level 3 Sequence (Really tough):

Round 1: South, South East, East, X
Round 2: South, South West, West, X
Round 3: East, South East, South, South West, West, East, X

The problem with this game is that unlike fighting games you’re restricted to the d-pad, whereas the inclusion of the left analog stick would have made it easier.

Also there are many moments where your button input gets dropped. This game will require a few tries to complete, so make sure to reload your save if necessary.

After completing all 6 games the trophy will unlock when you complete the last game.
