This article is about the Arcana. For the Shadow, see Arcana Chariot.


The Chariot Arcana (戦車?) is a recurring Arcana in the Persona series.


"The Arcana is the means by which all is revealed...
One of life's greatest blessings is the freedom to pursue one's goals."
—Nyx Avatar, Persona 3

Portrayed as a king leading a chariot made up of two differently colored horses (in some cases mythical creatures). The Chariot Arcana is a symbol of victory, conquest, self-assertion, self-confidence, control, war and command.

Personas of the Chariot Arcana are commonly Personas excelling in Physical-based attacks. They are almost invariably warrior figures or mythological war deities.

Characters who are of the Chariot Arcana are typically very driven individuals, who have a personal goal that they aim to achieve at any cost. It is not uncommon for Chariot characters to be short-tempered or aggressive. Combat-wise, they also tend to focus on physical attacks rather than magic.

Said characters also have special Physical skills that can be performed without their Persona's aid. Aigis has Orgia Mode, which temporarily increases attack. Chie, on the other hand has Galactic Punt, which takes out a non-boss enemy off the battlefield. In Persona 4 Golden, she has a Galactic Punt-like Cavalry attack, which can only be accessed if Chie is not in your current party. Persona 5 has Insta Kill, which allows the player to obtain lower leveled Personas without having to fight them, should the Confidant of Ryuji Sakamoto advance towards Rank 7.

Persona 3

The Chariot Arcana Social Link is represented by Kazushi Miyamoto, an enthusiastic athlete student enrolling in Gekkoukan High School similar to the protagonist. The protagonist can initiate the Social Link after April 24th, where he is informed that Sports Clubs are accepting new members. The protagonist can choose between Track Team, Swimming Club, or the Kendo Team in initiating the Chariot Arcana Social Link.

Alternatively, even should the protagonist ignore the information and decide to not join any Sports Clubs, Isako Toriumi, the protagonist' homeroom teacher, will eventually force him to join one of the sports club later. The Chariot Arcana Social Link powers up every time the protagonist attends the Sports Club meetings, and upon completing the Social Link, Kazushi will give the protagonist his Sports Tape, bestowing the ultimate form of the Chariot Arcana, Thor, "the mighty god of thunder."

The Chariot Arcana is also the Persona Arcana of Aigis, one of the members of SEES.

If one chooses to play as the female protagonist, the Chariot Arcana Social Link will be represented by Rio Iwasaki, when the protagonist chooses to be in either the volleyball club or the tennis club. But instead of the Sports Tape that the male protagonist receives from Kazushi, an Annotated Guide will be received from Rio instead, which also bestows the ultimate form of the Chariot Arcana, Thor.

Persona 4

"I want to protect everyone..."

The Chariot Arcana Social Link is represented by Chie Satonaka, a classmate of the protagonist in Persona 4. The Social Link is automatically created the next day after the protagonist and Yosuke's second venture into the Midnight Channel.

The Chariot Arcana Social Link powers up every time the protagonist interacts with Chie, where he helps her in her personal physical training for the Midnight Channel, and more importantly, helping her understanding her confused thoughts of being somewhat of a "tomboy" and her insecurities of lacking any talents. In the events of the Social Link, Chie also reveals several incidents of her and Yukiko during their childhood.

Leveling the Chariot Arcana up to Lv. 3 allows Chie to learn her distinct follow-up move, Galactic Punt, where Chie delivers a powerful kick on an active enemy, instantly knocking it out of the battlefield. On several occasions, Galactic Punt also works against some mini-bosses. However, the protagonist must have struck down a target first.

By the end of the Social Link, Chie reveals that she's still finding her area of expertise, but she also exclaims that with the help of the protagonist, she would be able to find it, and thank the protagonist. With her inner psyche changed, Chie's Persona, Tomoe Gozen will transmogrify into Suzuka Gongen. Completing the Chariot Arcana Social Link will also bestow the ultimate form of the Chariot Arcana, Futsunushi.

In Persona 4 Golden, Chie can unlock a third-tier persona: Haraedo-no-Okami. This is done by initiating Social Link meeting at any point after 1/10 if the Chariot Arcana is at Rank 10. ​​​​

Persona 5

The Chariot Arcana is represented by the Confidant with Ryuji Sakamoto, which initiates on April 12th and ranks up as the protagonist interacts with him. Along with the Fool Arcana Confidant, it is one of the first 2 Confidants to be available during the progress of the game. As it ranks up, this Confidant unlocks a chance to instantly kill weak enemies on ambushes, resulting in a random persona given to the protagonist, as well as various other team member skills for Ryuji.

As the Confidant reaches maximum Ryuji's Persona, Captain Kidd will transmogrify into Seiten Taisei. Completing the Chariot Arcana Confidant will also bestow the ultimate form of the Arcana, Chi You.

In Persona 5 Royal, if the Chariot Arcana confidant is maxed out and the protagonist chooses to reject the false reality during the events of the third semester, Ryuji Sakamoto will unlock his third-tier Persona: William, by fusing Captain Kidd and Seiten Taisei.
