Persona 5 Royal – Strength Confidant Guide

Get to fusing.

Persona 5 Royal's Confidant System is fairly straightforward, though the warden twins Justine and Caroline break the mold. Starting from 5/18 you can raise their confidant level, the Strength Confidant. You must perform fusions until you create demons with certain move sets. Here's how you can raise your rank to 10 and get the rewards.

Strength Confidant Guide for Persona 5 Royal

Rank 1 - Jack Frost with Mabufu

Jack Frost is a demon that naturally learns Mabufu at level 12. You can find them in Madarame's Palace. You could also fuse together a Silky and a Berith to obtain Jack Frost.

Rank 2 - Ame-no-Uzume with Frei

Fuse Suzaku with Berith, making sure to carry over Suzaku's Frei skill.

Rank 3 - Flauros with Tarukaja

Create Flauros using a Triple Fusion. You'll need to fuse together Berith, Orobas, and Eligor. Eligor will know Tarukaja, and you can carry this skill over to Flauros.

Rank 4 - Phoenix with Counter

Fuse Yaksini with Kelpie. Yaksini should know the counter skill, which you can carry over to Pheonix.

Rank 5 - Setanta with Rakukaja

Fuse together Lamia and Silky. Lamia should know the Rakukaja skill, which can be carried over to Setanta.

Rank 6 - Neko Shogun with Dekaja

To create Neko Shogun you'll need to perform a triple fusion with Anzu, Kodama, and Sudama. However, make sure to level up Anzu to Level 28 and teach them the Dekaja skill to pass on to Neko Shogun when you complete the Triple Fusion.

Rank 7 - Lacheisis with Tetraja

Raise a Clotho to level 28 to teach it Tetraja. Then fuse Clotho with the Regent demon, passing on Tetraja to Lacheisis.

Rank 8 - Hecatoncheires with Masukunda

Raise Lilam's level to 34 to learn Masukunda, then fuse it with Anzu, passing on Masukunda to the resulting Hecatoncheires.

Rank 9 - Bugs with Samarecarm

Raise Hariti's level to 41 to teach it Samarecarm, then use this Hariti in a triple fusion with Pixie and Pisaca, passing on Samarecarm to the resulting Bugs.

Rank 10 - Seth with High Counter

The most complex fusion yet! Raise a Dakini to level 52 to learn High Counter. Fuse that Dakini to Pzuzu and pass on the required skill to Horus. You'll then need to perform a four demon fusion using this Horus with Anubis, Isis, and Thoth. Pass on High Counter to the resulting Seth and you are done.
