Persona 5 Endings Guide

Persona 5 is a complex game so its endings are complex as well. Here is how you can get all endings in Persona 5.

This Persona 5 Endings Guide will help you get the best ending in the game along with tips to avoid the bad endings in the game.

When it comes to Endings in P5, there are four different endings; a true, best ending and three bad endings. Before we begin, do note that the guide contains massive spoiler so don’t proceed ahead if you want your spoiler-free run.

In order to get the true ending, you must progress through the game as normal until November. On November 20th, you’ll find yourself in the interrogation room with Sae asking you about your party members.

During the interrogation, you must avoid choosing the bottom option as it will lead you to the bad ending. In order to get the best P5 ending, select either options A or B. Once done, play the game until December 24th during which you’ll have a conversation with Igor.

In order to get the best ending, you must refuse the deal and fight him. Overall, the fight is not terribly difficult and you should be able to complete the game with the best ending.

Lastly, there are some things that you must avoid if you wish to get the best ending. Doing these things will set you on your path to a bad ending. There are three bad endings:

  • The first one is the easiest to obtain. All you have to do is ignore the deadline of the Palace without getting the treasure inside.
  • The second bad ending depends on the choice you make during the interrogation with Sae Niijima. What you have to do is to reveal your fellow Phantom Thieves to Sae.
  • The third and the last bad ending includes a decision which you take in dungeon. During the conversation, choose the option “Is it really the right world?” to start off with this bad ending.

A few of the other things that might get you a bad ending include: not clearing a Palace before the due date, responding incorrectly during a conversation, making the wrong choice in the final dungeon.
