What if you had the choice to set one's fate, no matter how difficult? Persona 5 gives you many chances to fight for the main character's freedom, in your own incredible way. This video game is such an experience that you will get lost as you continue playing it. What makes Persona 5 such a brilliant game aside from its OST and graphics has got to be the characters. Since Persona 5 is a game that's story-based, the characters are an important factor to complete it. You must be wondering who is the most awesome Persona 5 character you will ever encounter. Well, this is the perfect time to find out who stood out among the rest.
When you start playing Persona 5, the first character you will see is no other than the protagonist. You actually mainly play as the protagonist, and you have no choice on that matter, but you can pick his fate. His story begins as the protagonist transferred to Shujin Academy. On the surface, he seems like a character that doesn't stand out from the crowd. Since he's the Persona 5 protagonist you know that's not the case, and he is a man of many personas. Behind his quiet stature is a person who is different to each group he closely interacts with. He is known as The Phantom, Joker, and Trickster, among many others. He is one of the best Persona 5 characters mainly because his story is the most in-depth.
If we were basing the best Persona 5 characters on their development alone, Futaba Sakura is on top of this list. She is one of the main characters of the game and she starts out as a recluse. She fears going outside and remains shut-in at home, bordering on agoraphobia. Because of this, she also rarely attends school. She is also one of those who is deeply wounded by the traumas of her past, especially the death of her mother. The result of this made her socially anxious and lonely. However, she gradually changes when she meets the protagonist and the other Phantom Thieves. She at some point also ends up joining them, for a personal reason you will discover more about as you play Persona 5.
Makoto Niijima is one of the best characters to play in Persona 5. With her long-winding life story alone, you will be quite invested in her. Although she is the student council president at Shujin Academy, she remains unpopular. In fact, she has a rather bad reputation being labeled as a control freak to those who don't know her that well. There is more to her than meets the eye. As you get to know her character, you will realize that she actually has a lot of insecurities, despite being a perfectionist. She is also a puppet of sorts to the principal of the school and holds no real authority. She is assigned by the principal to go after the Phantom Thieves and she takes it on.
Another playable character that made it on this list is the aesthete Yusuke Kitagawa. Given that he is an art student from Kosei High School, it almost comes to no surprise that he finds art in anything. You can say that he's passionate about art and it really shows. He is a rather eccentric young man and although his love for art is respected, his group of friends still finds him rather strange. He doesn't seem to mind though and continues to do his own thing. His personality is cold towards people who don't agree with his ways. He's also a part of the Phantom Thieves of Hearts and he is known by the code name Fox. If you want to play a fascinating character, Yusuke Kitagawa is all that and more.
Ann Takamaki is one of the playable characters in Persona 5 and she is the classmate of the protagonist. Ann is often seen around him and she also lives an alternate life as a Phantom Thief. Ann is rather kind and empathetic towards anyone she meets. This is noticed by characters throughout the game. Despite this, she doesn't have a lot of friends although that would probably have to do with the fact that she lives abroad. Ann, however, is not one to be underestimated as she becomes stronger as a Phantom Thief. She also becomes livelier than usual as she carries on her duties. She is also the person that keeps the rest of the thieves' moral compasses at bay.
Tae Takemi is what Nurse Joy is in the Pokemon games. Albeit, cooler and packed with a lot more personality. She is the eccentric doctor who heals characters in Persona 5 and owns her own medical clinic. She is also the number one supplier for recovery items in the game. What would the Persona 5 characters do without her? Even though she has a bad reputation and a dark sense of humor, Tae is still an overall good person. She is ready to aid anyone who needs her medical attention. Although at some point she gets annoyed at The Protagonist, she remains level headed and comes to a compromise. What's even more fun is that if you (aka The Protagonist) is fond of her, you guys can totally start dating.
Sadayo Kawakami is the homeroom teacher of The Protagonist and she teaches Japanese. She is competent in her job and a professional. Although she is a little laidback saying the word "crap" in class. She also has hopeless romantic tendencies, even projecting it towards the older students. Aside from that, she initially treated The Protagonist unfairly that is until he redeemed himself. From there, she became friendlier to him. After her day job, she wears a French maid costume and provides domestic services. Talk about a hardworking woman!
Yuuki Mishima is a great example of a character who turns his weaknesses into his driving force. Although he's not playable in the game, his story is still one worth knowing. He considers himself as a nobody and is often bullied. He remains isolated for the most part of his life until he looks up the Phantom Thieves. He envies them and wishes he could also impart that kind of impact in society. He is also rather perceptive given that he discovered The Protagonist was part of the Phantom Thieves. He is an intelligent individual who chooses to turn his setbacks into ways to better himself, if not the world.
Morgana is without a doubt, one of the fan-favorite characters in Persona 5. The shapeshifting cat has become a mascot of sorts and is a distinct character in the game. Other than his form that stands out from the rest, he is also a prominent and playable character. He serves as the co-captain of the Phantom Thieves of Hearts. In the real world, he seems like a normal cat just meowing everywhere and being docile. Although in the meta-world, Morgana asserts his dominance and can be understood by anyone he comes to interact with.
