TheGamer’s Persona 5 Royal 100% Completion Walkthrough: May

Welcome to TheGamer’s Persona 5 Royal walkthrough. Here, we’re gonna be guiding you through all ten playable months of the game, making sure you’ll make it to the true ending with all confidant ranks and social stats maxed out— not to mention popping that shiny platinum on your first run of the game.

Going month by month, each guide will include:

  • Month overview
  • Notes on restricted/limited time events
  • Daily activity guide
  • Mementos and Palace notes
  • Recommendations/tips for combat optimization.

A few things to note going for this walkthrough:

  • This walkthrough is a modified version of this guide, optimized for further efficiency and combat effectiveness.
  • All confidant rank ups are dependent on you bringing a persona of a matching arcana when spending time with them. With the exception of Rank 1 and Rank 10, if you forget to do this even once it’ll set your schedule back— sometimes catastrophically, depending on the confidant. Make sure you’re keeping track of your personae. Reminders will be included when your only opportunity to prep a persona for an event is the night before.
  • This walkthrough is based on normal difficulty— you might find yourself having a hard time keeping up on higher difficulty modes.
  • As it’s not possible to 100% the Thieves Den achievements on your first run, we’ll be guiding you through popping as many of them as possible, but it will not be a main focus like the PS4 trophies.
  • This guide will be running on the assumption that you’re choosing a platonic route with all the romanceable characters to accomodate for everyone— if you find yourself progressing faster with your romanced confidant than the guide plans for, use the extra day as a free slot.
  • Story-locked confidant ranks will not be included in the monthly exit stats.

At this point, we’ve already gone through April, so May is the next month.

May

In May, the game gradually stops holding your hand. After the Madarame Palace that takes center stage this month is over, the game will stop grabbing your ankles to explain a new mechanic as often.

The two things to keep in mind that you MUST stay on schedule for the Chariot and Temperance confidants. The rank 7 event for Chariot is only available at night on specific dates, so if you’re behind schedule you might be stalled on this confidant line until as much as two weeks later.

Temperance doesn’t have restricted dates, but it is essential to get it maxed out as soon as possible as night confidant events will be unavailable until you do so. As this confidant requires Guts rank 3 to initiate, this also means keeping on track for leveling up your Guts stat as well.
