Persona 5 Fusion Guide

The outcomes of Persona fusions are decided by a strict formula. Each Persona has an arcana type, and certain arcana combination produces Personas of different arcana. For example, combing a Hermit Persona with a Magician Persona always makes a Lovers Persona. The original levels of the chosen Personas are averaged together, and then 1 is added to that number. The result of the fusion is whichever Persona's base level is closest to that number in the designated arcana set.

You don't need to understand this formula to beat the game, but gamers have made Persona 5 fusion charts to help players obtain specific Persona.

Defeat Treasure Demons

Treasure demons are easy enemies that yield a lot of experience points, but they run away when spotted. Use the Third Eye skill to seek them out, or just smash every yellow object you come across to uncover their hiding spots. They will start running right away, so chase them down to engage in battle.

The key to defeating treasure demons is to knock them out with their weaknesses. For demons without a weakness, try attacks like Lucky Punch to take them down with a critical hit.
