Persona 5 – Facts, Figures & Favourites

Hello dear readers and welcome back to Shoot the Rookie! As you may know if you follow me on Twitter (that’s @pix1001 if you don’t!) I have recently completed Atlus’ heart-changing JRPG, Persona 5. You may also know that I am rather fond of it. As such I’m planning a couple of articles about the game but I wanted to kick off with a simple collection of facts and figures detailing what I achieved in the game, so please join me for this number crunching run through my time in Persona 5!

There is of course a great deal more in the game than stats, and I intend to write about Persona 5 in a deeper and more emotional context in the future, however, as well as having an excellent story and some of the best characters from all of gaming, it does have A LOT of stats, lists and other stuff, so before really delving into my feelings on the game I thought it would be fun to take a look at what I achieved during my play through. Also, I’m gonna put the ol’ *SPOILER WARNING* here. Although I’m not specifically discussing story elements there is at least one major spoiler ahead. You have been warned!

Right! Let’s kick this off!

Favourites (etc.)

This isn’t really stats but it can still be done in a nice quick-fire way. I’m not going to go into much detail about why these things are my favourite (I’ll save that for a later post), but just to give you a flavour of some of the stuff I really loved in the game…

Persona: Jack Frost

Persona Skill: HAHAHA! Mediarahan!

Confidant Ability: Kawakami’s ‘Free Time’. Those announcements crack me up every time!

All Out Attack: All of them! I have to pick? Ok, Noir. How sophisticated is she with her tea cup?!

Most Stylish Party Member (real world): Akechi (it’s the gloves…)

P5 Akechi

After School Job: Crossroads Bar… you meet some interesting folk there!

Confidant Story (individual section): Yusuke trying to understand ‘anguish’ in the church. Arms in the air everyone…

Yusuke Church Scene

Confidant Story (whole story): Yoshida – it was the first one I finished because I could never turn down his requests! I thought I should pick one I actually completed but I suspect that Mishima or Sojiro might be my favourite were I ever to complete them

  1. I was crying laughing at that Yusuke hang-out in the church. Hilarious. Ryuji is definitely best boy!! I think Ryuji, Makoto, and Sojiro were my favourite confidant stories. Looking forward to the rest of your thoughts on the game 🙂

  2. Yeah Ann’s is really good although unfortunately I never got to quite finish it. I just love Ryuji, there is just something so good about the way he is trying to move on from his past!

  3. I’m glad I’m not the only one who finds Ryuji so likeable! … And the whole shipping him with Ann thing ☺️ there was clearly something more between them! Even right at the start, he’s looking out for her!
