Persona 5 Guide: Confidant Choices & Unlocks for Moon, Sun & Judgement - Mishima, Yoshida & Sae

The relationships you forge in Persona have always defined the protagonist, and Persona 5 continues that tradition with a strong cast of characters you'll want to get to know.

Getting to know them also has some large in-game benefits, too - forging relationships boosts your RPG abilities through the confidant and cooperation system - the new name for what were previously known as Social Links/S-Links. Getting to know the right people quickly can really give you an edge - and we're here to help.

Persona 5 Confidant Cooperations / Social Links - How They Work

Persona 5's story takes place across a very specific period of time, and as such your time is limited. Who you spend your time with is important, and if you want to make the most of your time in Tokyo you'll want to make sure you level up your confidant cooperation ranks quickly. In this guide we list all of the conversation choices for three Arcana - Moon (Mishima), Sun (Yoshida) and Judgement (Sae) so you know what options to pick for the best outcome.

Numbers like +2 and +3 indicate just how many points your relationship is gaining towards its next level. The numbers listed are based off those gained when you are carrying a Persona of the same Arcana in your stock at the time of the scene, since that gives bonus points. As a rule you'll always want to carry a matching Persona when boosting relationships.

One of these links grows in line with the story on specific dates, so we've listed that too. Some may regard parts of this page as having minor spoilers, so beware.

For all the other Persona Arcana, be sure to check out our Confidant & Cooperations Guide Hub or visit the individual pages:
