Growth Rate is a mechanic in early Persona games.

Appearances[edit | edit source]

Profile[edit | edit source]

In Persona and Persona 2, Personas do not level up. Instead, they start at Rank 1 and rank up after being used a certain number of times, until reaching Rank 8. As they rank up, the Persona's stats go up and they learn new spells. However, which stats are increased and by how much isn't the same for all Personas.
