How to Access All Persona 5 Confidants

From IGN - January 15, 2018

The following is IGN's Confidants guide for Persona 5. Confidants are Persona 5's version of Social Links. Building relationships with your confidants will give you more abilities, bonuses, and items as you progress and they are a cornerstone of the Persona series.

Spending time with your confidants will be your primary source of game time outside of Palaces. Use your time well as you do not have forever. Some days, confidants will be around in their locations, but you wo not be able to spend time with them.

When to Hang Out

In most cases, you will get a text from someone who wants to hang out with you, usually to progress your social link with them, but sometimes you have to go and look for them. The best way to do that is by bringing up your map to see which areas have the blue card icon and then hitting Square over the location to see who is available. If it says "Up!!" over their name, you can rank up with them. If their name is greyed out, that means you either have not reached a requirement of their social link or you have not spoken to them since you reached the requirement. If you just see a blue card, that means you need to spend time with them before you can get to the next rank.

Unlike previous Persona titles, confidants are not on set schedules. We have listed the days they are typically available, buttheir availability will vary due to the month, your rank with them, weather, and where you are in the story. Make sure you finish Palaces early because Phantom Thief confidants will usually be too on edge to want to hang out until after you have stolen a Palace's treasure.

Hangout Spots

Selecting a fun hangout spot is a good way to earn bonus reputation with someone when you are in between rank ups. Learning hangout spots can be a huge benefit to ranking up with all your confidants.

Sometimes a confidant or the story will take you to a location that you can bring others to later, such as with Ryuji when he takes you to his favourite ramen shop, but you can also read about hangout spots in magazines and books. Going to a hangout spot with someone can yield unique rewards, but no such rewards or dialogue options will be available upon going to the same location more than once.
