Persona 5: Confidant Answers

While playing through Persona 5 you’ll meet and obtain several different Confidants (there are 21 in total). These NPCs each share a common interest of yours, whether it’s how they feel about the world, a goal they may have, or some other driving force. While some are strengthened automatically, a lot of them require you to hang out and have conversations with them to progress the relationship and strengthen the bond.

Strengthening the bond ranks up the Confidant and can unlock useful abilities for you and your party. While some are better than others, you will want collect and max them all out if you’re looking to get the Platinum trophy in Persona 5. We’ll go through each Confidant and let you know the best answer for each as well as of any romance options.


The dates given for certain ranks are the earliest possible dates for that rank, you don’t have to necessarily show up on that day. We’ll also provide any other requirements such as specific Social Stats or completed missions.

To make this guide easier to use and avoid any useless words, we’ll only share the best answers. We’ll also only share answers for the exchanges that matter. For example. If you see a rank only have “Answer 3” that means only the third time you’re able to speak matters, and you should choose the option stated.

  • O The Fool, Igor
  • I The Magician, Morgana
  • II The Priestess, Makoto Niijima
  • III The Empress, Haru Okumura
  • IV The Emperor, Yusuke Kitagawa

  • VI The Lovers, Ann Takamaki
  • VII The Chariot, Ryuji Sakamoto
