Persona 5 Confidant list, rank requirements and romance options

How to win friends and influence demons

Persona 5 is filled with demons and a ton of friends who can aid you in different ways. Throughout the game, you’ll have the opportunity to forge relationships with various party members and non-playable characters. Outside the warm and fuzzy feeling that comes with friendship, increasing your relationships with NPCs pays off.

Each of 21 relationships in Persona 5 are associated with a different Arcana, which are associated with the Personas you can fuse. Increasing your Confidant Rank with each person allows you to strengthen the fusions you make for Personas of that Arcana.

In addition to helping you create stronger Persona, certain characters also give you major benefits when increasing your Confidant Rank. Doing so unlocks new skills, progresses that character’s story — and for some characters, allows you to romance them and make them your partner. (You can only romance a select few female characters but no men.)

If you’re looking to level up a certain confidant and you aren’t sure what requirements you need, check out our table below, which also shows you which characters are romanceable. (If you’re looking for a more in-depth explanation, check out RPG Site.)

Spoiler warning: The list below contains spoilers about who can be a confidant.
