Persona 5 Confidant Guide

After so many years, Persona 5 is finally here. It’s a game with an incredibly deep and entertaining combat system, and a intriguing plot, but one aspect that makes up the bulk of the campaign is the Confidant system (formerly known as Social Links). This allows players to interact with various characters around Tokyo and learn of their stories, all while at the same time getting benefits such as being able to switch out party members mid-battle, or reversing a dire situation into a beneficial one.

Given that there are so many Confidants with such varying personalities, we wanted to share a guide to which responses are best received by each individual. This ensures you won’t be wasting unnecessary time spending days and evenings with Confidants, and leveling them up quickly. Please note all the values are when you have a Persona with the corresponding Tarot Card in your arsenal.

This guide is only for Confidants that require dialogue choices to progress, so ones that are automatically leveled up through the story (such as Magician) or those that require other means of progressing, such as Strength, will not be listed here.

    • alx_hollow

      There’s nothing missing. The others are automatic/persona fusion.

      • Ah Soon

        Yeah I know they are automatic, but it will be good to put it here completely, so the new player know something about them, my example are what this rank give you, from one to ten, and Twin Warden also a good guide to put it here.

        • alx_hollow

          “Twin Warden” I agree, the rest is spoiler.

    • yeaitsjohnny

      so go find it somewhere else or make it yourself lol there are plenty online

      • Ah Soon

        Relax, I don’t mean to be rude and there are no harm to ask this, don’t be negative. While they at it, it be good to put a complete confidant here.
