Persona 5 Royal Confidant Guide

There are a lot of unique gameplay mechanics to understand in Persona 5 Royal. Perhaps the most iconic of the franchise are Confidants. Confidants are powerful allies in Persona 5 Royal that replace the Social Links system found in previous games. They grant a variety of useful skills when ranked up, with some of these skills being a must for an optimal playthrough.

Leveling up your confidant ranks also grants other benefits. For the female characters, maxing out their Confidant rank gives you the option to romance them. Furthermore, any maxed Confidants in a normal playthrough will give you a farewell present that grants permanent buffs in your New Game+ playthrough.
