How to Beat a Regent (Treasure Demon) in Persona 5
Once you reach the second Palace in Persona 5 you’ll be introduced to an enemy known as a Treasure Demon. These are powerful Shadows that can take a lot to bring down, but will reward you generously if you manage to do so. The Regent is the very first Treasure Demon you’ll encounter, and also the weakest. Although, at the time you encounter the enemy it certainly won’t seem weak.
The key with Treasure Demons is figuring out their weakness, and knocking them down to prompt a hold up. Once you’ve done that, you’ll be able to negotiate with the Regent and it will instantly join you if asked. Remember, however, that you cannot get a persona to join you that’s above your level.
The Regent is level 10, and weak to Psychic and Nuclear, but immune to Bless and Curse. Just continue hitting it with these attacks until you can get it knocked down and in a hold up. Treasure Demons like the Regent will appear randomly, and can often leave after one turn. Because of this, it’s important that you hit its weakness right away. If you’re having trouble finding one in the game, you can craft the Treasure Trap Infiltration Tool which will boost their appearance rates.
Just keep the Regent’s weaknesses in mine as you explore, and you’ll be handsomely rewarded whenever you run into one. For more guides and tips on Persona 5, make sure to take a look at our wiki.
