In Persona 5, you will find 21 confidants and each of them is associated with particular arcana, which in turn describes the categories of the persona. In this guide, we will show you the locations of all confidants in detail.
In the game, you can maintain friendships with your party members and other important NPCs in Tokyo, thus benefiting from various bonuses. For example, a good relationship with the Dr. Takemi you’ll get a discount on healing items and if you get along with teachers, you may even go unpunished with the lessons and do other things.
Find Confidants and Boost Ranks
If you keep your relations with Confidants on a regular basis, you will be rewarded with rank ascents that will give you new abilities, bonuses and items. Please note the following:
- You will usually get a text message from new announcements and party members because they want to do something with you. Tell us absolutely not to disappoint them.
- The icon with the blue map on the map also shows you where a confidant is available to hang out. A "UP" means that with the corresponding Confidant a rise in rank is imminent.
- The Confidants' sites are always changing in the course of the game, and you should always close the current Palace before you continue to maintain relationships. After all, party members are only willing to do something with you after a completed palace.
- Use the so-called hangout spots for trips with your friends and give gifts to female confidants. You can buy these in the various shops of Tokyo and every Confidant has different preferences here.
Important! Whenever you do something with a Confidant, make sure you have a persona of the appropriate Arcana type in your inventory (see table below). This gives you bonus points for improving the relationship in the dialogues with them
