The Hope Arcana (希望, Kibou)? is an Arcana appearing in Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers.


Like the Faith Arcana, the Hope is not found in standard tarot decks. The Hope Arcana is present in the Visconti-Sforza tarot deck. Upright it represents hope, optimism and positivity. On the other hand, reversed, it can represent despair, false hope, negativity, and pessimism. 


List of PersonaEdit

Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom StrikersEdit

The Hope Arcana is represented by Sophia upon her true awakening in the Jail of the Abyss.

When Sophia defies Kuon Ichinose's ideology of humanity as she believes that they do not desire eternal escapism from mistreatment and being wronged enables one to grow from their mistakes, it results in her awakening to the Hope Arcana, enabling Pithos' transformation into Pandora.

  • Together with the Priest Arcana, it is the first Arcana to debut in a spin-off game.
  • In the Visconti deck, the Hope is not numbered, unlike most Arcana in the Persona series. It shares this trait with the Faith, another theological virtue within the same deck.
