Persona 5 Trophy Guide

Persona 5 Trophy Guide

Latest posts by Eoin Black (see all)

Persona 5, and Persona 5 Royal, may be the two most important games I’ve ever played. They got me through some tough stuff, granted at the cost of literally hundreds of hours across the two games. I’ve done everything there is to do, which is why I’m putting together this Persona 5 trophy guide.

I’ll go over every single trophy in Persona 5 Royal. As well as walk you through how and when to get each one in your playthrough. Despite being a long game, Persona 5R is a super easy Platinum and a lot of fun – so you’re in for a good time.

Key Info Up Front

  • Genre: JRPG.
  • Difficulty: Very Easy.
  • The number of playthroughs needed: Two (one if you’re ambitious).
  • The total number of trophies: 53.

Walkthrough

Persona 5 Trophy

Run One – True Ending

I typically suggest you do a casual run of a game before you start trophy hunting for it. I strongly recommend you do that for Persona 5 Royal. While the game may be over 100 hours long, it’s among the easiest Platinums I’ve ever encountered.

You could technically grab the Platinum in just one playthrough – but that would seriously hamper your enjoyment of the game. Instead, I suggest two playthroughs (technically a playthrough and a half).

First, do a somewhat casual run aiming for the true ending. I have all the trophies you need to get in that run listed below but don’t stress too much about that. There’s nothing outrageously difficult in this run – just little chores you’ll need to take care of while you otherwise enjoy the game.

The only thing you need to stress about this run is unlocking the true ending. To do that, you need to meet these conditions:

  • Confidant Rank 9 with the Councillor Arcana before 11/18.
  • Confidant Rank 5 with the Faith Arcana before 12/18.
  • Confidant Rank 8 with the Justice Arcana before 11/24.

Focus on those Confidants during your playthrough – everything else you can do at your leisure.

Trophies in This Run

It's Showtime Trophy Persona 5

The following trophies will be unlocked naturally by progressing through the story – provided you successfully trigger the true ending:

  • All Palace-Related Story Trophies.
  • It’s Showtime
  • The Thorough Trickster. 
  • Take Back the Future. 
  • The Path Chosen.
  • The Deviated Cognition
  • Spirit of Rebellion. 
  • You’d Better Hang On.
  • Phantom Thieves: Assemble!
  • Awakening the Phantom Thieves. 
  • True Confidence.

All of the trophies above will pop for you at some point during a true ending run of Persona 5 Royal. However, the majority of the trophies below will also pop during regular gameplay – they’re just technically missable. You would have to actively go out of your way to avoid getting many of them:

  • Tokyo Tourist – You will unlock Ginza as a hangout spot on 24/7. When you do, find a Confidant not ready to rank up yet and invite them there. 
  • My Closest Partner – You can romance whichever female Confidant you want – just make sure you don’t leave it too late to rank them up.
  • I am Thou – Get this done in the first Palace.
  • Tactical Teamwork – Can be done whenever in your run.
  • Let’s Blow it Up – Can be done whenever in your run.
  • Technician – Burn a Shadow with Ann, then follow up with a wind attack from Morgana.
  • Talent Thief – Can be done with any Palace.
  • The Purpose of a Thief – Unlocks during Madarame’s Palace. Here is each one’s weakness:
    • Regent – Nuclear.
    • Queen’s Necklace – Psi.
    • Stone of Scone – Fire.
    • Koh-i-Noor – Gun.
    • Orlov – Curse.
    • Emporer’s Amulet – Electric.
    • Hope Diamond – Ice.
    • Crystal Skull – Wind.
    • Orichalcum – Bless.
  • Jose’s Favorite Customer – Unlocks on 5/7.
  • The Phantom Philatelist – Done side-by-side with Jose’s Favorite Customer.
  • The Search for Power – Once you have 30 stamps, purchase all 10 ranks of the items upgrade tree.
  • A Deadly Debut – When you unlock the Velvet Room, perform a Guillotine execution and fuse any of your two Personas.
  • Efficient Executioner – Can be done with Strength Arcana rank one.
  • Intensive Training – Can be done with Strength Arcana rank three.
  • Success Built on Sacrifice – Only unlocks after the Pyramid Palace.
  • Accident Prone – Ability unlocks after Kaneshiro’s Palace.
  • A Grand Experiment – Unlocks on 8/1.
  • Leblanc Buffer – Can be done whenever you have free time at the start of the game.
  • Punch That Clock – No time limit, so do this one whenever you want.
  • Batter Up – Best done at the start of the game, at night.
  • Getting the Vapors – Wait for a rainy day then save scum this one.
  • Easy Money – Make sure you’re constantly buying and checking lotto cards until you get a winner.
  • Going Against the Crane – After unlocking Akihabara, save scum.
  • Trash into Treasure – Do this one whenever you manage to get Sooty clothes from a dungeon.
  • Dartslinger – Option unlocks on 6/5.
  • A Hustler’s Journey – Done side-by-side with Dartslinger.
  • A Night in Kichijoji – Requires Justice Arcana rank four.
  • A Serene Experience – Unlocks with the rest of Kichijoji.
  • Angler’s Debut – Agree to hang with Ryuji on 7/6.
  • Master of Akihabara – Can be done whenever, but it will take five total visits.

Run Two – New Game Plus

Persona 5 Trophy

Persona 5 Royal’s new game plus lets you take a whole bunch of stuff with you into a new playthrough, including your stats, Compendium, and more. This makes a handful of trophies – four in fact, much easier to obtain.

You could get this in your first run, but you’ll be hard-pressed for time to do that. Instead, grab them, and any trophies you missed, here. You don’t even need to finish the playthrough if you don’t want to.

Trophies in This Run

  • A Most Studious Disguise – Locked behind 5 Knowledge.
  • Pure Perfection – Focus on your stats throughout this playthrough.
  • Unsurpassed Rebel – Take as much time and preparation as you need for the Reaper.
  • Professional Modification – Locked behind four Guts.

  • Unlock Percentage: 93%.
  • Difficulty: Story-related.

A Most Studious Disguise

A Most Studious Disguise Persona 5 Trophy

  • Trophy Type: Silver.
  • Unlock Percentage: 58%.
  • Difficulty: Easy.
  • Run: New Game Plus.

A Most Studious Disguise pops when you score the highest on one of your school exams. This is locked behind level four Knowledge, meaning you should save it for new game plus.

Pure Perfection

Pure Perfection Persona 5 Trophy

  • Trophy Type: Silver.
  • Unlock Percentage: 57%.
  • Difficulty: Average.
  • Run: New Game Plus.

Pure Perfection is the Persona 5 Royal trophy for maxing out all of your social stats. It’s technically possible to get this done in your first run, but with how much other stuff you have to do – it’s better left for your new game plus run.

Tokyo Tourist

Tokyo Tourist Persona 5 Trophy

  • Trophy Type: Bronze.
  • Unlock Percentage: 79%.
  • Difficulty: Easy.
  • Run: True Ending.

Tokyo Tourist pops whenever you hang out with one of your Confidants at a hangout spot. You’ll unlock these hangout spots by reading different books and progressing certain Confidants. 

My Closest Partner

My Closest Partner Persona 5 Trophy

  • Trophy Type: Silver.
  • Unlock Percentage: 61%.
  • Difficulty: Average.
  • Run: True Ending.

This one is for entering a relationship with one of the game’s many female Confidants. This is done by getting their Confidant to rank nine and selecting the correct dialogue options to woo them. Let’s be honest – if you’re playing Persona 5, then you at least partially know about the game’s romance options.

True Confidence

True Confidence Persona 5 Trophy

  • Trophy Type: Silver.
  • Unlock Percentage: 64%.
  • Difficulty: Average.
  • Run: True Ending.

True Confidence is the trophy for maxing out one of your Confidants. You need to do this for the true ending, anyways, so it might as well be story-related. Thankfully, there’s no trophy for maxing out all your Confidants, so you don’t need to worry about that sort of grind.

Awakening the Phantom Thieves

Awakening the Phantom Thieves Persona 5 Trophy
Image from Fandom
  • Trophy Type: Bronze.
  • Unlock Percentage: 53%.
  • Difficulty: Average.
  • Run: True Ending.

The technical requirement for this trophy is to evolve one of your party member’s Persona. This isn’t the transformation they undergo when you max out their Confidant, but rather an additional transformation that takes place after you enter the game’s third semester in the true ending. Morgana goes through this automatically, given that you max out his Confidant naturally during the game. This means that this trophy might as well be story-related. Your other party member’s Confidants must be maxed-out before the third semester if you also want them to transform.

I am Thou

I am Thou Persona 5 Trophy

  • Trophy Type: Bronze.
  • Unlock Percentage: 88%.
  • Difficulty: Easy.
  • Run: True Ending.

This is another example of a trophy that might as well be story-related, which is something that holds true for a surprisingly large number of achievements in this Persona 5 Royal trophy guide. This one is for successfully obtaining a new Persona through negotiation. You’ll likely do this in the tutorial, so you don’t have to do anything special or different.

Tactical Teamwork

Tactical Teamwork Persona 5 Trophy

  • Trophy Type: Bronze.
  • Unlock Percentage: 86%.
  • Difficulty: Easy.
  • Run: True Ending.

This one is for successfully performing a Baton Pass which is how you should be playing every fight in Persona 5R, so you’ll get this one during your playthrough.

Let’s Blow it Up

Let's Blow it Up Persona 5 Trophy

  • Trophy Type: Bronze.
  • Unlock Percentage: 84%.
  • Difficulty: Easy.
  • Run: True Ending.

Let’s Blow it Up is unlocked by defeating an enemy with the explosion from a Disaster Shadow. Throughout your playthrough, you’re bound to stumble across countless Disaster Shadows. When you do, make sure you leave an enemy alive with as little health as possible, then kill the Disaster. The resulting explosion will kill the other shadow and pop this trophy.

You’d Better Hang On

You'd Better Hang On Persona 5 Trophy

  • Trophy Type: Bronze.
  • Unlock Percentage: 86%.
  • Difficulty: Story-related.
  • Run: All.

Technician

Technician Persona 5 Trophy

  • Trophy Type: Bronze.
  • Unlock Percentage: 86%.
  • Difficulty: Easy.
  • Run: True Ending.

Technician unlocks when you perform a Technical attack on an enemy. It’s a new mechanic for Royal. To trigger a Technical, you need to inflict an ailment onto an enemy, then follow that up with an attack of a specific damage type. That damage type depends on the ailment you inflict.

Talent Thief

Talent Thief Persona 5 Trophy

  • Trophy Type: Silver.
  • Unlock Percentage: 75%.
  • Difficulty: Easy.
  • Run: True Ending.

Talent Thief is for completing a Palace after obtaining all three of that Palace’s Will Seeds. This isn’t a tall ask – you should aim to collect the Will Seeds from every Palace you visit.

The Purpose of a Thief

The Purpose of a Thief Persona 5 Trophy

  • Trophy Type: Bronze.
  • Unlock Percentage: 70%.
  • Difficulty: Easy.
  • Run: True Ending.

The Purpose of a Thief pops when you first obtain a Treasure Demon. There’s a bug with this trophy where it won’t unlock if you capture a Treasure Demon but your active stock is full. So, make sure you have at least one empty slot before hunting it.

You encounter one Treasure Demon during the story, in the Museum Palace. This introduces you to the mechanic, and Treasure Demons are present for every Palace after.

It’s Showtime

It's Showtime Persona 5 Trophy

  • Trophy Type: Bronze.
  • Unlock Percentage: 70%.
  • Difficulty: Easy.
  • Run: True Ending.

Showtime attacks are a new mechanic added to Royal. They involve a combined attack from two of your party members, but triggering one is completely random. The first Showtime attack you perform will be during the third Palace, but this doesn’t count for It’s Showtime.

If you’re unlucky enough to go through your entire playthrough without a Showtime attack taking place, there’s a scripted instance of one in the last Palace in the true ending that will unlock this trophy.

Jose’s Favorite Customer

Jose's Favorite Customer Persona 5 Trophy

  • Trophy Type: Bronze.
  • Unlock Percentage: 76%.
  • Difficulty: Easy.
  • Run: True Ending.

This trophy will pop after the first time you trade flowers with Jose in Mementos.

The Phantom Philatelist

The Phantom Philatelist Persona 5 Trophy

  • Trophy Type: Bronze.
  • Unlock Percentage: 74%.
  • Difficulty: Easy.
  • Run: True Ending.

This trophy is the same as Jose’s Favorite Customer, except for stamps instead of flowers. You need to collect a lot of stamps for a different trophy, so again, this one should come naturally.

The Search for Power

The Search for Power Persona 5 Trophy

  • Trophy Type: Silver.
  • Unlock Percentage: 55%.
  • Difficulty: Average.
  • Run: True Ending.

The Search for Power is Jose’s most intensive trophy. It involves unlocking all stages of one type of cognitive changes offered by Jose. These cognitive changes permanently affect how Mementos operates, offering a variety of buffs and other features.

These upgrades are bought with stamps, and there’s a limited number of stamps on every floor – they’re not random. So, as you make your way through Mementos, make a point of collecting every single stamp as you pass them. Beyond that, just make sure you only focus on one category of upgrade. You don’t need to max out them all, only one of them – be efficient.

The Deviated Cognition

The Deviated Cognition Persona 5 Trophy

  • Trophy Type: Bronze.
  • Unlock Percentage: 71%.
  • Difficulty: Easy.
  • Run: True Ending.

Mementos Deviations are randomly occurring floors that are different than usual. You’ll know you’ve found one because your minimap will be blacked out. This trophy pops the first time you encounter one. You can’t influence Mementos Deviations – so just play the game and you’ll stumble across one eventually.

Unsurpassed Rebel

Unsurpassed Rebel Persona 5 Trophy

  • Trophy Type: Silver.
  • Unlock Percentage: 49%.
  • Difficulty: Hard.
  • Run: New Game Plus.

Unsurpassed Rebel is potentially the most difficult task in this entire Persona 5 Royal trophy guide. To get it, you need to defeat the Reaper – an optional boss in Mementos that blows everything you fight in regular Palaces out of the water.

Persona 5 vanilla players may remember that you could cheese the Reaper by fighting it during flu season. That no longer works, so you’ll have to kill him the old-fashioned way. You do still summon it the same way, though – by waiting five minutes on any one floor in Mementos until you hear chains rattling.

The Reaper resists every element and has access to attacks of every element. In other words, it’s a brutal boss that will make a meal out of anyone not prepared for the mountain of a challenge that it poses. As such, I recommend you take care of this trophy during your new game plus run when you have access to better Personas and are overall better at the game. If you’re confident enough to take it on in your true ending run – feel free. However, you’ll need a lot of experience and game knowledge to pull something like that off.

A Deadly Debut

A Deadly Debut Persona 5 Trophy

  • Trophy Type: Bronze.
  • Unlock Percentage: 83%.
  • Difficulty: Easy.
  • Run: True Ending.

This is the first trophy in a series surrounding the Velvet Room and the various tools you have access to there. Starting with something simple, A Deadly Debut pops when you perform your first Guillotine execution (not including the tutorial).

You don’t need to fill out your Persona Compendium for Persona 5 Royal, so it is technically possible to get through the game without using the Velvet Room. However, you also need to kill the Reaper, so you’ll get more than familiar with Guillotine executions.

Efficient Executioner

Efficient Executioner Persona 5 Trophy

  • Trophy Type: Bronze.
  • Unlock Percentage: 63%.
  • Difficulty: Easy.
  • Run: True Ending.

This trophy is the same as A Deadly Debut, except it’s for Group Guillotine Fusions as opposed to singular ones. You need to get your Strength Confidant to rank one to unlock this option – afterward you just, well, use it. You’ll need access to all the bells and whistles in the Velvet room in your playthroughs, including your new game plus run if you still need to prepare for the Reaper.

These bells and whistles are unlocked through that aforementioned Strength Confidant. Luckily, a lot of its ranks are tied to bringing the twins specific Personas with different attacks. Once you make one of these Personas once, you can save them in your Compendium to quickly complete the Confidant in your second run.

Intensive Training

Intensive Training Persona 5 Trophy

  • Trophy Type: Bronze.
  • Unlock Percentage: 63%.
  • Difficulty: Easy.
  • Run: True Ending.

The Velvet Room facility you need for Intensive Training is the Lockdown mechanic. This unlocks at Strength Confidant rank three. You can leave your Persona in Lockdown to strengthen it, but you also have the option of pumping its cell with some incense to induce certain effects. For Intensive Training, you need to lock a Persona down, and smoke it out with incense.

You can purchase incense from Jose in Mementos, from the Mantra Ganda shop in Kichijoji, and from the TV in Leblanc on 7/3 and 11/13.

Once you have your incense, return to the Velvet Room and put a Persona in Lockdown. You’ll be prompted to add incense – select the incense you want to use, and Intensive Training will pop.

Success Built on Sacrifice

Success Built on Sacrifice Persona 5 Trophy

  • Trophy Type: Bronze.
  • Unlock Percentage: 64%.
  • Difficulty: Easy.
  • Run: True Ending.

This one is for performing a Gallows execution. You unlock this option after finishing the Pyramid Palace. It involves sacrificing one Persona to give an EXP-bump to another. It’s a handy way to level Personas, so you’ll likely use the Gallows often.

Accident Prone

Accident Prone Persona 5 Trophy

  • Trophy Type: Bronze.
  • Unlock Percentage: 69%.
  • Difficulty: Easy.
  • Run: True Ending.

Every so often, upon entering the Velvet Room, the area will be coated in red light and alarms will be going off. This isn’t random – rather an invisible meter controls its occurrence. This meter is built up by performing surprise attacks and catching Shadows, so you’re bound to get at least one of them.

One of them is scripted – the first one. This triggers after you reach the Treasure in the first Palace. To unlock Accident Prone, you need to perform a Persona fusion during this alarm. You don’t need an accident to occur during that fusion for this trophy, you just need to perform the execution itself.

A Grand Experiment

A Grand Experiment Persona 5 Trophy

  • Trophy Type: Bronze.
  • Unlock Percentage: 70%.
  • Difficulty: Easy.
  • Run: True Ending.

You unlock a new execution called the Electric Chair on 8/1. A Grand Experiment pops for using that Electric Chair and is the last Velvet Room-related trophy in this Persona 5 Royal trophy guide.

Leblanc Buffer

Leblanc Buffer Persona 5 Trophy

  • Trophy Type: Bronze.
  • Unlock Percentage: 74%.
  • Difficulty: Easy.
  • Run: True Ending.

Leblanc Buffer is your reward for cleaning up Leblanc for the first time. To do that, head to the cafe floor in Leblanc whenever you have free time. Once there, interact with the toilet door by the stairs to clean. You’ll get this trophy, some Kindness, and a relationship point for the Hierophant, or Sojiro.

Punch That Clock

Punch That Clock Persona 5 Trophy

  • Trophy Type: Bronze.
  • Unlock Percentage: 78%.
  • Difficulty: Easy.
  • Run: True Ending.

Punch That Clock involves working at your part-time job in-game, which is the last thing I think anyone would want to do. Thankfully, Persona 5R doesn’t exactly follow regular conventions – you can get a part-time job, then show up for a shift whenever you want, or not show up at all.

There are four part-time jobs in the game, three of which are accessible by reading a pamphlet on the pamphlet stand underground in Shibuya. The last one involves ranking up your Devil Confidant and working for Lala.

Regardless of which one you want to do, work one shift. You can do whatever you want after that.

Batter Up

Batter Up Persona 5 Trophy

  • Trophy Type: Bronze.
  • Unlock Percentage: 76%.
  • Difficulty: Easy.
  • Run: True Ending.

Batter Up is unlocked by scoring a hit in the batting cages. You’ll find the batting cages in Yongenjaya. The cages are a great source of early Proficiency before the rest of the map opens up for you to explore. For the trophy, you need to hit at least one baseball during the involved mini-game.

If you go to the cages during the day, you’ll be given five chances to make a hit. If you go at night, though, you can keep going until you’ve had your fill – making that the much better option for hunting this trophy.

Getting the Vapors

Getting the Vapors Persona 5 Trophy

  • Trophy Type: Bronze.
  • Unlock Percentage: 63%.
  • Difficulty: Easy.
  • Run: True Ending.

When you clean your room in Leblanc, you’ll find a book called “Yoncha Walker 04.” By reading that book, you’ll unlock access to the Yongenjaya Bathhouse. To unlock Getting the Vapors, you need to pass out in that bathhouse.

There’s only one way to do this, and it involves spending time in the bathhouse when it’s raining. If you’re at the bathhouse while it’s raining, you’ll have the option to stay in the baths for longer. When you take this option, you have a 50% chance of passing out and receiving a point of Guts.

So, with the bathhouse unlocked, simply wait for a rainy evening. Then, save your game and visit the bathhouse. If you pass out – great! If not, reload the save and keep trying until you do.

Easy Money

Easy Money Persona 5 Trophy

  • Trophy Type: Bronze.
  • Unlock Percentage: 61%.
  • Difficulty: Easy.
  • Run: True Ending.

To unlock Easy Money, you need to win something on a lottery card. The game seeds whether or not a ticket is a winner when you receive it, and you won’t know the result until seven days later, so you can’t save scum this one.

Outside the underground station in Shibuya, you’ll see lottery machines where you can buy a ticket. Buy one, wait seven days, then return to the machine to see whether or not you won. If not, rinse and repeat until you do.

Going Against the Crane

Going Against the Crane Persona 5 Trophy

  • Trophy Type: Bronze.
  • Unlock Percentage: 76%.
  • Difficulty: Easy.
  • Run: True Ending.

This one you can save scum. Inside the arcade in Akihabara, you’ll find a claw machine that you can play. Well, not play exactly. The machine’s outcome is random and has no input from the player. You can also only play it once per day, which is why you want to save scum. Pop a save, play the machine, then reload your save. Rinse and repeat until you win.

Trash Into Treasure

Trash Into Treasure Persona 5 Trophy

  • Trophy Type: Bronze.
  • Unlock Percentage: 69%.
  • Difficulty: Easy.
  • Run: True Ending.

Throughout your playthrough of Persona 5 Royal, you’ll come across Sooty clothes from dungeons that you can wash in the laundromat in Yongenjaya. However, what you might not know is that instead of washing them, you can sell them to a store called Furugi No Neuchi in Kichijoji. Sell some Sooty clothes instead of washing them, and Trash Into Treasure will pop.

Dartslinger

Dartslinger Persona 5 Trophy

  • Trophy Type: Bronze.
  • Unlock Percentage: 68%.
  • Difficulty: Easy.
  • Run: True Ending.

You’ll unlock access to the Penguin Sniper hangout point on 6/5. After that, you can invite your Confidants to play darts there. Do that, and this trophy will pop – you don’t even need to win the game. You can immediately forfeit if you’re not a fan of the minigame.

A Hustler’s Journey

A Hustler's Journey Persona 5 Trophy

  • Trophy Type: Bronze.
  • Unlock Percentage: 65%.
  • Difficulty: Easy.
  • Run: True Ending.

You can also play pool in the Penguin Sniper with your Confidants, which is exactly what you need to do for this one. There’s no difference between this and Dartslinger except the option you select in the Sniper.

A Night in Kichijoji

A Night in Kichijoji Persona 5 Trophy

  • Trophy Type: Bronze.
  • Unlock Percentage: 59%.
  • Difficulty: Easy.
  • Run: True Ending.

The Jazz club is initially unlocked when you reach rank four of the Justice Confidant, which happens naturally throughout the story. After that, all you have to do is visit it in Kichijoji during the evening to unlock this trophy.

A Serene Experience

A Serene Experience Persona 5 Trophy

  • Trophy Type: Bronze.
  • Unlock Percentage: 57%.
  • Difficulty: Easy.
  • Run: True Ending.

A Serene Experience pops when you visit the temple in Kichijoji, like the Jazz club, except this one isn’t locked behind a Confidant. Once you have access to Kichijoi, speak with the man outside of the temple, and agree to meditate. This will trigger a small cutscene and this trophy.

The temple is a really powerful resource. Spending time there increases your max SP, which can come in very powerful against the Reaper given that it carries across to new game plus.

Professional Modification

Professional Modification Persona 5 Trophy

  • Trophy Type: Bronze.
  • Unlock Percentage: 62%.
  • Difficulty: Easy.
  • Run: New Game Plus.

Professional Modification requires you to customize one of your guns. This sounds easy, but then you remember that to do this, you need to start your Confidant with Iwai in the gun store. To do that, you need to have four Guts, and that’s no small feat. Chances are you’ll be able to make this work towards the end of your true ending run, but if not, carry it over to new game plus and get it out of the way immediately.

Angler’s Debut

Angler's Debut Persona 5 Trophy

  • Trophy Type: Bronze.
  • Unlock Percentage: 54%.
  • Difficulty: Easy.
  • Run: True Ending.

For Angler’s Debut, you need to have access to the fishing pond. Ryuji will invite you there on 7/6, but you can also unlock access to it by reading the Fishpond Spotter book. All you have to do for the trophy is spend time there and successfully catch a fish – not too difficult.

Master of Akihabara

Master of Akihabara Persona 5 Trophy

  • Trophy Type: Bronze.
  • Unlock Percentage: 49%.
  • Difficulty: Easy.
  • Run: True Ending.

When you visit the maid cafe in Akihabara, you’ll be able to order something from its menu. This trophy is awarded for getting the menu special, which only becomes available when you’ve spent 20,000 Yen in the cafe.

The dearest thing the cafe offers is 5,000 Yen – meaning you’ll need to visit the cafe a total of five times. For your first four visits, order the Sincere Omelette for 5,000. The fifth time you go, you’ll be able to order the menu special and unlock this trophy.

Conclusion

That’s it for this Persona 5 Royal trophy guide. There are a lot of trophies, to be sure, but not much challenge. One and a half runs of the game is all you’ll need for everything, but that’s still over 100 hours of gameplay. If you’re new to Persona 5, though, that time will feel like nothing. Trust me, there’s no bigger time sink.  

FAQ
