Persona 4 Golden Costumes: every outfit and how to get them

By the time Persona 4 Golden was in development, the original PS2 version of Persona 4 was already a huge hit with dedicated fans - and that meant only one thing could happen in the enhanced Golden re-release: fan service. How do you do fan service? Well, with costumes, obviously. P4G has quite a few of them.

Costumes are equipped in Golden using a character equipment slot that's separate from the gear that actually impacts your stats in battle. Whatever you have equipped in this slot will not change anything in dungeons except your character's appearance, and the costumes range from in-universe realism, such as warmer clothes for the winter months, right through to in-universe nods to other Persona games and some silly over-the-top superhero style outfits... and beyond.

Persona 4 Royal Costumes guide: every costume & how to get them all

On this page, we detail all costumes in Persona 4 Golden including the Shared Costumes you only need to buy once, plus the individual costumes for the protagonist, Yosuke, Chie, Yukiko, Kanji, Naoto and Teddie. The detail includes what the costumes are and how to get them.

Before we get into that, some notes about costumes:

  • Costumes come in two basic variations: group costumes that when bought once include variations for several characters, usually the whole cast, and individual costumes that are designed for one character.
  • Some costumes are automatically obtained through story progression.
  • Beyond that, most of the optional outfits are sold, which will require access to the Scooter and Okina City, but some are also rewards for certain side quests and certain actions.
  • Some costumes are also gated behind advancing social links to a certain point - that's listed below, but use our Persona 4 Golden s-link guide to max out links quickly.
  • The costumes that are sold are expensive - but if you need to grind for cash, this is also an ideal time to ground towards the Hardcore Risette Fan achievement, for what it's worth.
  • Some costumes have unique bonuses - they can change a character's voice lines or animation in battle, or trigger unique banter between party members when equipped.

Fox Costume Reward Dates

Four of the costumes below are exclusively obtained from Fox when you meet him in the pre-dungeon staging area in the back side of the TV - but he'll only give the costumes up if you pat him on the head on a day when he's in a good mood. The costumes obtained this way are the Kung Fu Costume (Chie), Kingpin Duster (Kanji), Lord Flauntleroy (Teddie) and Track Suit (Chie). 

The natural way to chcek if Fox is in a good mood is simply to approach him each day you enter the TV world. He'll "Yip" when you first talk to him, and "seem to be enjoying it" when you pat his head. These are the signs of a good mood. However, here's a list of dates when Fox will be in a good mood:

  • May 22nd, 26th, 30th
  • June 1st, 9th, 13th, 21st, 25th & 29th
  • July 4th, 8th, 12th, 16th
  • August 3rd, 7th, 11th, 27th
  • September 6th, 14th, 18th, 22nd, 26th, 30th
  • October 1st, 5th, 13th, 21st, 25th
  • November 4th, 8th, 12th, 16th, 20th
  • December 11th, 15th, 19th
  • January 10th, 14th, 18th, 26th & 30th
  • February 1st, 5th
  • March 20th
