Persona 5: Yuuki Mishima (Moon) confidant choices & unlock guide

Your life as a Phantom Thief in Persona 5 and Persona 5 Royal actually earns you a fan club - a phanclub, if you will - and the man behind that, Yuuki Mishima, can actually become a good (if clueless) friend of the group through his very own confidant cooperation relationship. Mishima is filed under the Moon arcana in the Velvet Room, and carries relevant bonuses.

As always, this guide is here to help guide you through the process of ranking up your confidant relationship with Mishima as quickly as possible. If you need help with other characters, head on over to the full Persona 5 confidant guide, which is enormous.


Yuuki Mishima Confidant Cooperation Relationship Guide - Moon (La Lune - XVIII)

Here it is - our guide to the Mishima confidant cooperation. As always, the numbers represent the boost to your hidden confidant relationship EXP stat - but this actually doesn't matter with Mishima, as he works a bit differently to the others. Mishima begins out progressing automatically on certain dates in line with the story, but even after that his leveling up is guaranteed.

You'll have to take time out to hang out with Mishima, but in order to level up his confidant relationship you'll also need to undertake requests in Mementos. Doing requests makes Mishima happy, and then the next time you see him youi'll be able to rank up. Basically, Mishima and his unlocks exist to encourage you to complete side quests. 

  • Mishima can be found in Shibuya or in Shinjuku, most often at night.
  • While Mishima's confidant cooperation is linked to side quests, the standard rules apply for the questions you can answer in conversation - some are worth more points to advance the relationship than others, and there is a point bonus if you have a Moon Persona in your stock to match his Arcana. All the point additions listed here are when you have a Moon Persona equipped.
