Persona 5 Kaneshiro Palace Guide

In our Persona 5 Kaneshiro Palace Guide, we’ve detailed everything you need to know about completely clearing out the Kaneshiro Palace, defeat enemies, and the boss at the end.

Persona 5 Kaneshiro Palace – 6/20 – First Phase

Head down the corridor into the meeting room and battle against two sets of Oni. After the battle, head back to the entrance to trigger a cutscene and battle against two Oni and a Suiki. Try to use magic and complete the battle.

Persona 5 Kaneshiro Palace – 6/21 – Second Phase

Observe the front door that Makoto wrecked and then observe the right-hand statue to find a secret entrance. Find a chest behind the bank tellers and head inside the room on the left-hand side. Find another chest below the stairs and head up.

Defeat the dog shadow and head to the corridor. Press the switch at the end to open a shutter gate. Instead of going towards the new path, head back towards the central area of the map and use your third eye to see a lot of filing cabinets.

Climb up to proceed through the air duct and drop down to defeat four Horsies. Once done, pick up the map along with the keycard and open the main door using it. Now head to the door that was previous locked and head down using the elevator.

After the elevator stops, proceed through the duct and head to the ground floor. Once done, find a safe room in the unexplored area. Head to the corridor with the security cameras and use your third eye to get to the end of the corridor and disable them.

Don’t head towards the stairs and head south to battle a red shadow followed by destroying a switch in a small room to disable another camera. From there, destroy another switch in the southwest edge of the map and head up the stairs.

You need to avoid heading into the room with three money bags and walk down the corridor till you’re opposite side of the wall to disable the security cameras and grab your loot. From there, proceed through the room directly above the safe room.

Continue through the area until you get to a large room with stairs. Head inside the top room to trigger a few electrical fences. While avoiding security cameras, head to the bottom-right of the stairs and into the corridor.

Once there, use your third eye to jump further down and proceed through the corridor to come across a vault. Head past it and unlock a door at the top of the stairs. Don’t head inside the room and follow the path to head inside a smaller room.

Once you’re in there, use your third eye to climb the duct in order to find a chest, a door to unlock, and a couple of switches to destroy. This should allow you to disable all the security cameras and the electrical fences.

Now head back to the room on top of the stairs and arrive in the security room. Deal with the shadow using Magic and head to the previous area to deal with another shadow using Nuclear. The last thing that you need to do is to grab the map, return to the vault, and proceed to the next area.

Persona 5 Kaneshiro Palace – Inside the Vault

Proceed through the corridor, head left and through the south door. Once inside the long corridor, deal with a couple of shadows while avoiding the security cameras. Once done, crawl through a duct in the small room at the end of the corridor.

Climb the narrow ledge at the very end and drop down to find another duct before riding the elevator. After grabbing all the loot in the area, head to Kaneshiro. After defeating the enemies, head to the elevator.

After heading out of the elevator, observe the panel and enter ‘0102’ and head down the stairs. Now head up another set of stairs and enter ‘0931’ as the passcode. After you’re forced back into the vault area, head inside Area 3.

Once inside, make sure to avoid cameras and destroy the switches to disable them. After arriving in the room with the electrical fences, exit the room and use your third eye to find a ledge to climb up.

The next thing that you need to do is to crawl through the duct, open the chest, and find another duct in the southwest edge of the room. Climb the stairs and head down the hallways to find another terminal which requires ‘2319’ as password.

After being forced to the vault area once again, head inside the newly opened area to come across two Oni and a Takeminakata. Once done, align the walls and head down the stairs into the warehouse. Find a duct in the bottom-left of the area.

After you’re on the other side, use your keycard to open up the shutters and head down the hallway while avoiding cameras. The final keycode that you need to enter is ‘1841’.

Persona 5 Kaneshiro Palace – Kaneshiro Boss Battle Tips

The first phase of the fight is fairly easy. The boss attacks twice per turn and will cause Fear status when near death. I highly recommend conserving as much SP as possible for the second phase.

There are a few things that you need to have during this encounter i.e. Tarunda for Pig Robot, Queen’s Energy Shower for Fear, and Media for healing the teammates. At about 25% HP, the boss will gain a new attack that can one-shot the entire party. Make sure to avoid it and you should be good to go.
