Morgana
Really good shit
Implying Morgana is useful for anything other than being an out-of-battle healbot while Makoto handles in-battle healing
Honestly, if his Confidant wasn't tied to story he'd probably be more useful, considering it takes him forever to learn all the good battle perks.

So is there a limit to how much stronger a persona can be than you with Strength maxed or is the sky the limit?

Does Makoto ever learn multi-target heals? I don't really want Morgana on my team, and I don't want Joker as the dedicated healslut when I could be using him for element coverage

Supergrass

The cost goes up, For example now I can fuse Ishtar which is over 20 levels above me and it costs about 160k. Other than that, no. Plus you can still use gallows with things above your level for no cost.

Dreamworx

Yeah I wish the MC could hook up with Ryuji too.

Sky's the limit. Head straight to the Velvet Room on the first day of NG+ and grab a level 99 Persona out of the Compendium if you want.

I'm kinda surprised they didn't have any bathhouse shenanigans. That was a staple of 3 and 4.

I mean there was that one bathhouse event but the only shenanigans was Ryuji getting mad at the old guy who made it super hot.

Not that I'm exactly complaining, i never really enjoyed those events.

Given how many of the earlier ingame dialogues have Joker telling Ann to thank Ryuji or that Ryuji was the one to help her against Kamoshida, probably.

She learns mediarama and mediarhan so she stays useful. I used her as my main healer for my play though and it worked out well.

FastChef
FastChef

Well if you don't mind waiting until near the end of the time limit, on December 8 or 9, its flu season which means you can grind the Reaper

But as long as you have some SP items, early 60s is an okay level to fight Shido at. The main challenge is just that its a long fight. I had to use two somas to finish it, but I was able to finish it fine otherwise.

Only on the second Palace here, but is it just me, or is combat vs normal enemies REALLY easy? Just hit weakness, baton pass to teammate who can hit the other enemies' weaknesses, then all out attack for gg.

Starting with dungeon 4 enemies start to get more diverse resistance wise with multiples that have no weaknesses.

That said, basically dungeon crawling is just figuring out how to one turn as many enemy comps as you can so they cant retaliate.
Yeah that was a bit worrying

SniperWish

Good luck with the Onis in the third palace or whenever you have to fight a shadow that isn't weak to any of your parties' attacks.

RavySnake
RavySnake

Persona never really had great combat anyway.
Also it's just the second palace for you, the fight are easy sure, but the "difficulty" comes from managing your resources trying to finish it as fast as possible instead of wasting time.
Also you'll get more random encounters with enemies with huge HP pools, rare weaknesses or no weaknesses at all in the later palaces.

Just use his fucking skills from the party screen to heal yourself, there's no reason waste a party slot on something that deals no damage, and if you need healing mid battle Makoto is just fine for that in a pinch.

Basically this. I dropped Morgana immediately once I could and I've used him to heal from the menu and that's about it. I think Futaba's Persona slightly heals SP after battle for inactive party members so Morgana could still gain back SP that way.

But he's helpful with his Media skill until others can obtain multi-healing skills in the mean time.

Illusionz
Illusionz

It isn't all a lie, and he does repent but the story cockblocks him from rejoining by giving him a vague sacrifice instead, probably because a later plot point requires him to be MIA.

Still though like others said he'll return in an enhanced edition or spin off for sure. He's the most popular party member and the story seems almost deliberately tailored to tease the player with as little of him as possible because they know they'll want more.

Reminds me of Flynn in Vanilla Vesperia honestly.

As far as I'm aware in terms of grinding normally there's the one section right before the final boss, I'm pretty sure it has the strongest enemies in the game.

As for power leveling though I hear that if you visit Mementos while it's flu season, you can take on the Reaper while its Despaired and it kills itself for a free 75k EXP.

I think putting Kamoshida as the 1st boss kind of set the bar a little too high for the rest of the game.

Like I remember how furious and emotionally involved I was during the scene where he tells you he's going to get you expelled, and how high the stakes felt, and I didn't really feel that way for anything else, even Goro/Shido/Yaldaboath.

Also he's 100% the most despicable "feeling" of the villains whose hearts you steal. You could say Okumura or Shido was worse in a utilitarian sort of way but taking advantage of kids sexually is probably the worst of all the PT's victims.

I kind of agree in that sense. There's no doubts that some of the other targets are awful people but with Kamoshida you really saw the impact he had and it was a hell of a way to kick start the game and the protagonist's school year. Like you actually see students get physically and sexually abused by Kamoshida and it was completely cathartic to take him down. I didn't really get that same sense of catharsis until Shido, but even then I was just kind of tired at how long his multi phase boss fight and how long his dungeon was so I just wanted to get it over with.

Like... with Kaneshiro and Madarame no one's really in danger unless you fail, and their crimes are kind of just like... implied. They're still horrible of course, but again, with Kamoshida you SEE that shit. You see the bruised and battered male students, you see the broken Shiho and distraught Ann, and you also see this in his palace as well.

Mitsuru's father was a good guy who was taken before his time, forever robbing Mitsuru of being able to have time with her father without the guilt and responsibilty of the Dark Hour incident from hanging over them.

Haru's father's life was over regardless. He'd just rot in jail for the rest of it. Yeah he didn't deserve to die like that and they could have made had some heart to hearts in visiting hours and maybe if he lived a few decades in jail and got out on good behavior, but it's not like she had a bright future ahead with her father that was stolen from her. He was going to be taken out of her life either way.

Mitsuru had everything she'd been working for (being able to ease her father's burdens) ruined forever. Haru had already made her peace with the fact that she was going to basically end her father's life as they knew it anyway.

Then have the cognitive Goro be another boss fight and the actual Goro comes to his senses and joins you, cue Will Power and away we go. The rest of the team can still keep him at arms length and still fucking rib into him but in the end they'd be on the same side: taking down Shido.

I think Sae's palace also had some pretty high stakes since you know it was the palace from the beginning of the game, you know that you'll get captured whether you succeed or not, like you know that she'll be after you outside the Metaverse if you fail and you'll still get apprehended in the Metaverse even if you succeed. Then you become privy to the super obvious traitor.

Plus what follows is your faked death and the rather convoluted but still successful gambit of smoking out Akechi. I'd say there's a lot of high stakes here which is pretty fitting given the casino theme.

This would be the ideal scenario and I'm surprised that they didn't go the usual route of redemption through friendship and the truimph of bonds. One side of it is that by not giving him this chance to fight alongside his allies against shiro and tease his death they set up a sequel (hopefully) or they just fucked up in trying to be different this time around. It doesn't really make sense for goro to be the one key character they just let die without a purpose. that's dark but I don't think it was their intention.

I wouldn't say Goro was supposed to be like Adachi aside from being traitors and detectives (them having similar surnames doesn't count) but you can obviously see their difference.

Goro was painfully suspicious and anyone who isn't a moron would've picked up the pancake conversation. Plus the party actually outsmarts him.

Meanwhile Adachi's crimes weren't really that obvious plus he seemed like a nobody throughout the entire story.
I can't remember but Adachi had a pretty shitty motive but on Goro I can get behind.

They basically make a gamble because it relied on shit like Futaba somehow getting access to his phone, everything lining up perfectly between activating the Metaverse in the interrogation room, to Sae being none the wiser so she doesn't walk in on what appears to be an assassination, and also ensuring that nobody checks for the corpse. It was a fucking insane plan.

Then in Golden practically anyone who plays the game knows he's the murderer, and if it wasn't enough, he also has a Social Link that somehow gets locked behind story progression. Just like Akechi...

The biggest giveaway for Akechi for me was the lack of upcoming Confidant abilities. I did get spoiled that Akechi would have Loki but once he joined the team I thought maybe it'd be his evolved Persona. But since nothing showed up in the upcoming Confidant abilities... that was the biggest giveaway.

Otherwise, while I might've found his familiarity with the whole group during the school festival to be odd, I would have had to pick up on pancakes and it never registered with me. I'm just dumb though. Whereas with Adachi, at least in the vanilla version, you kind of just deduce it by process of elimination.

I still don't understand, here. Akechi mentions the crow costume as "one who sticks to their own justice", rather than any sort of rebel.

when he changes his outfit to his real one while he's using his ability on himself mona says something about him using the powers of two [personas] for different purposes (but at the same time), then points out how even his appearance's fake

his real outfit flickers for a moment before that when he's losing his composure like he's failing to maintain it

it's not outright stated as loki's ability but it's hinted at and makes sense as loki's ability since he's a shapeshifter in myth

he's genuinely smart (top scorer on national exams, design works lists inference/推理 as his special ability, he mentions doing other detective work that's not just solving cases in mementos, he's the main reason the party outsmarts shadow sae in niijima palace), it's just the cases that made him famous that he caused himself

He literally spends all his time sucking Joker's dick and talking about the Phan-Site. He's probably the least-compelling link in the game, and I'm including Ohya here. His only redeeming quality is that he's request-based, so you never have to hang out with him more than necessary.

Emberfire
Emberfire

He wasn't a murderering dickhole exactly. He let Yusuke's mother die in a moment of greed, but he didn't make a habit or particularly want his students to die.

Likewise he took Yusuke in to help better cover up his mother's death as otherwise people might come looking for answers but it seemed less suspicious if he took her kid in and they didn't want to upset him by getting too close.

It also allowed him to weave the lie for Yusuke's entire life otherwise a teenaged Yusuke might come looking for answers a decade later that he wouldn't be able to answer.

He did seem to be a kind and generous father figure in Yusuke's very young years but that was more for the sake of the cover up and once Yusuke was old enough to pull his own weight he started treating him like any other pupil.

It could have been worse and Yusuke turned out better than if he'd been sent to an orphanage like Goro to become bitter and jaded and grow up to be murder bros together. But still Madarame was while less openly abusive and evil still a heartless man, with everything focused around his benefit.

eGremlin

Yeah but he didn't do shit. It was at best an easter egg to those in the know.

Burnblaze

I'm going to go out on a limb here and defend Mishima. Not as a character, because Mishima is a little rat fuck, genuinely pathetic and disgusting in his soul, but as a concept I can appreciate him.

When I look at Mishima, he's basically the dark mirror of Yosuke from P4. Yosuke, like Mishima, does nothing but suck your dick. Yosuke so desperately wants to be your friend, your bro, to share in all your moments. But Yosuke has a Persona and is actually there. His dicksucking is played straight, they treat him like your bro, nobody ever calls him out, the game acts like you love him.

But Mishima? You fucking hate him for so transparently trying to ingratiate himself to you. Your character shits on him, at best your choices are to just snub him, because his character is such an unlikable, weak suck-up trying to catch your wind and ride it. You don't want or need his help, but he insists. And then he runs with it. You give him this tiny ounce of respect, and suddenly he acts like he's on your level. Like you owe him, like you would be nowhere without him, like he is your vital partner. But he isn't the one doing the stuff, he isn't out there. He just lives out his power fantasies through having this shaky fucking connection to you. And he is such a weak shit that he lets even this tiny scrap of power turn him into a sleaze like Kaneshiro. And you hate him for it. Everyone does.

I hate that fake fuck. But at least the game recognizes it and lets you shit on him, unlike Yosuke who you are forced to accept as your bro.

dark mirror of Yosuke

Because nothing else interesting of worthy of note happens in either of their lives. Yosuke awakening to his persona discovering the other side of the TV is interesting. It's something to do. It also happens the guy who helped him do that can also summon multiple personae.

Who wouldn't be jealous of that?

The only things noteworthy about Mishima is that he was abused by Kamoshida for however long he was on the volleyball team and his meek demeanor belies earlier abuse or bullying. Of course he has a lot of pent up anger and the minute he gains access to something to let it out or any semblance of control, he takes it.

He sucks dick vicariously through the PTs and uses them at any chance to put himself at an advantage. If he could, he would take credit for the PTs reformation of rotten adults. I really didn't mind his character, but actually playing the game and going through his SL REALLY put me off about him.

Most of the girls have reasons they can't go with him, but I agree on leaving being a copout. I know it's typical for Persona games, but there's really no reason why Joker has to leave, given that it's made clear that his parents sent him away because of a false assault charge to some friend-of-a-friend type, and that he has way more connections in Tokyo than he did in his hometown, including a girlfriend that he's evidently very serious about as implied by the Valentine's Day cutscene.
The only way that the ending makes sense is if you literally ignore all the S.Links.

Yosuke isn't jealous though, he just has a homosexual obsession with you because you're so awesome. It's what's off-putting about him. His behavior is too much and it's played completely straight.

This is why Yosuke is possibly the worst Persona character. People shit on Junpei because he's jealous of your mad skills, but then after a month Junpei realizes it's a team effort, he realizes he was being an asshole, he tells you he was being an asshole and is sorry, and then he returns to treating you exactly like he did at the start of the game before any of the Persona shit started happening.

Mishima is a loathsome assclown, but the game makes it clear that your team finds him pathetic and you are able to put him in his place.

Yosuke though? Literally 5 minutes after you get him he is just your eternal buttboy and this is all perfectly normal, not even played for laughs, not with a hint of irony.

They don't. Ryuji Yusuke and Makoto only get it after they get their Persona.

Everyone else got it because they needed to progress. Ann gets it because they need a 4th person to storm the castle. Futaba gets it because they couldn't beat the Sphinx without her. Haru gets it because some doors in the Space Station are biolocked.

As for how he knows. Anyone can be a Persona user in 5. You just have to be in the meta verse and have a rightous breakdown.

They might as well have had Joker say he would come back and move in with Ann.

Mitsuru was the most popular, but she never attracted much hate because she was a well-written and interesting character.

Chie was extremely popular as well, and plenty of people disliked her, but nobody thought she was a bad character.

Makoto is a badly written character, and as soon as she joins the team all the other characters immediately turn into retarded sycophants who praise her for magically knowing everything. She's a Mary Sue, that's not even up for debate, it's fact.

He holds those feelings backs though, because at the end of the day he knows he's no one compared to (Yu). He doesn't have a "homosexual obsession with you", he wants someone clearly superior to acknowledge his worth and treat him as equal, so he could feel like he also has some importance. It's why he clung to Saki so much, someone who seemingly had it all figured out and reached out to him when everyone else rejected him for being the "Junes kid", and why in his S.Link he lashed out on the girls that shittalked Saki, because they were ruining his idealized vision of her, the one that saw something more in him than just a mistake.
That's fucking it. He is jealous, he just decides to hide it and strives for acknowledgement instead, hoping that one day he will be as important to that person as they are to him.

Yes, but You literally never see Akechi use any persona other than Loki and Loki as Robin Hood, so he's obviously never captured/fused any other personas. Plus, his 'special' power appears not to be the archetypal Fool power, but instead the power to cause the mental shutdowns/psychotic breakdowns

Need_TLC

Actually he doesn't necesserily have the power of the Fool.

Both his Persona's are Justice Arcana, suggesting he's like the P1 and 2 characters of being a wild card with a non Fool arcana, which limits his Persona's he can use.

Which might also explain why he never showed interest in developing the power beyond a smokescreen to hide his true power from the Thieves.

Gameplay wise I don't get what the point of raising a security level to 99% after the calling card is sent is

The only time where it really matters is in the pyramid where you still have another segment to go through, but for every other palace you just warp to the safe room closest to the treasure and then work quickly. It's not like you're going through the entire palace again, meaning there'd be a risk and danger to the high security.

The western rule of "no body not dead" does not apply to the Japanese. They live by the formula of "if you do it this way that means it's this."

With all they go on this game about how no matter how evil you are, just dying and leaving everyone else to deal with the fallout is the easy way out, you'd think Goro, who's far more sympathetic than basically everyone other than maybe Haru's dad, wouldn't get the sweet release of death while leaving the PT to handle his fuck up.

People say Goro's last expression shows he's tired of living and death is something he welcomes is exactly why he shouldn't die honestly.
