The Persona series has been around for 20 years now, splintering off from the main Shin Megami Tensei series. Each new Persona game drastically changes up its systems, and hones in on very specific themes and storytelling ideas. However, nearly every entry in the series is beloved for its own reasons, and fans always have their personal favorites.
Persona has always been focused on its characters, and it’s easy to find them relatable and realistic. Because of this, fans have created some stunning cosplay of their favorite characters from various entries. By and large the game that has the most cosplay, just by amount, is Persona 4. It’s no wonder as the game is regarded as one of the best JRPGs of all time. The main character, Yu Narukami, is an instant hit for cosplay. Additionally you also see other popular party members like Chie, Yukiko, Rise and Yosuke all represented by multiple cosplayers. Kanji, Teddy, and Naoto may be seen less, but there’s still plenty of truly impressive cosplay for them. You can even see a few minor characters here and there like Ryotaro Dojima and Margaret.
Besides Persona 4, Persona 3 is the next most popular entry for cosplay. The protagonist of the game is easily the most popular character, and you can find both the male and female versions of the character. Other party members like Mitsuru, Junpei, and Akihiko also prove to popular. There are a few party members that you see less of, however, like Ken and Yukari.
While Persona 3 and 4 are easily the most popular games in the series, you can also spot quite a few cosplay representing the first two entries in the series. Surprisingly, there’s quite a few cosplayers also trying their hand at making the actual Personas, and boy are they impressive. Personas like Izanagi and Konohana Sakuya are lovingly recreated, down to the minute details.
Now the series moves onto Persona 5, which is being called one of the best entries in the entire series. Since the game was announced three years ago you can already find a few phenomenal cosplays of its characters. However, as more and more people get their hands on the game, surely we’ll start to see even more.
