Persona 5: Tae Takemi (Death) confidant choices & unlock guide

Providing prescription drugs to teenagers no-questions-asked isn't exactly the most sound thing in the world to be doing, so it perhaps isn't surprising that local doctor Tae Takemi represents the Death arcana in Persona 5 and Persona 5 Royal. That means she's somebody well worth getting to know better, as building a friendship with her unlocks a range of bonuses - and she's a romanceable character, if she's your type.

On this page you'll find all of the ranks of the Death Confidant Cooperation, complete with every conversation you have with Tae and every optional answer or choice within those conversations that can help you to build your relationship more quickly - which is handy for if you want to rank Tae up quickly to either reach the romance fast or preserve time for other things.

There are versions of this guide for every confidant on the site - just head to our Persona 5 confidant guide to find them all.
