Harisen Recovery (ハリセンリカバー, Harisenrikabā)? is an ability in the series.
Overview[edit | edit source]
Persona 5 / Royal[edit | edit source]
Harisen Recovery is a Confidant ability party members are able to learn. During battle, if an ally is afflicted with a status ailment, there's a chance an eligible party member will use this ability to remove their ailment.
Generally, the party members' respective Confidants need to be leveled up to Rank 6 to have this ability unlocked, with the exception of Morgana, Sumire Yoshizawa and Goro Akechi (in Royal) at Rank 7.
Etymology[edit | edit source]
The term comes from harisen (張り扇?, lit. "slapping fan"), which is a giant paper fan used in comedy acts, similar to slapstick. This object also appears in Persona 2: Innocent Sin when Maya Amano, Eikichi Mishina and Lisa Silverman perform their demon contact combo, mimicking the said cliché Japanese slapstick.
