"Me? Am I the one behind the burglary? Yeah, that's right! I convinced my friends to do some "part-time work" for me. But I'm not in the wrong!
No! I just meant it as a way to have a little fun, but those idiots got cocky! And now I'm the boss who's in trouble! Dammit! Why do bad things always happen to me!?

Yeah, ever since I was a kid! School, society... everyone treated me like I was dirt! My little brother was the smart one, Mom and Dad's favorite. They couldn't care less about me... How can you expect me to live a normal life? I'm rebelling against this shitty society!

What did you say? You guys are thieves, too! Don't think you're better than me, idiots! Go away!"
—Shadow Kazuya Makigami, Persona 5

Kazuya Makigami is a character from Persona 5 and Persona 5 The Animation The Day Breakers. He is one of the targets available in Mementos Requests.

Profile[edit | edit source]

Persona 5[edit | edit source]

Kazuya, or rather, his Shadow Self can be found in the Mementos in the request titled "Phantom Thieves VS Burglary Ring." When confronted, he transforms into Mithras and summons an Oni and Onmoraki to fight the Phantom Thieves of Hearts.

Persona 5 The Animation The Day Breakers[edit | edit source]

Kazuya Makigami is the older brother of Naoya Makigami, and physically abuses him every day to vent his stress over his criminal life.

Despite his age, Kazuya is actually the leader of a band of criminals who rob restaurants in Shibuya. The gang refers to him as "Makki," and he acts as their lockpicker. He eventually becomes fed up with the way his underlings treat him, and discovering the Phantom Aficionado Website, almost posts on there to have them killed, but decides against it. When two of his underlings are laid off due to "that geezer of a painter," he tells them not to go overboard.

Kazuya goes to rob Café Leblanc with his gang, but is surprised when he learns that it is in Yongen-Jaya. After breaking in, he becomes distressed when he notices a calling card from the Phantom Thieves of Hearts with his name on it. When the heist goes bad, he wonders who could have ratted them out, and finds himself in the Palace, where the Phantom Thieves confront him. There, they reveal that Naoya posted about him and his abuse, and he snaps, revealing himself to be the gang's leader and that he believes that everyone is inferior to him. He transforms into Mithras and summons an Oni and Onmoraki to fight the Thieves. He is ultimately defeated by them, with Joker finishing Mithras off with a bullet to the head, having "stolen" the arrogance from his heart. Defeated, Kazuya gives the key to his desk drawer to the Thieves, instructing them to give it to Naoya and have him burn what's inside.

In the real world, Kazuya loudly admits to his and his gang's crimes in public, leading to their arrest. He notices the protagonist walking away, wondering who he is.

Quotes[edit | edit source]

Persona 5 The Animation The Day Breakers[edit | edit source]

  • ""You guys," did you say? You're wrong! It's MY gang of crooks! Don't ever underestimate me!
    Yeah, that's right! I'm the leader of this gang of crooks. Who prodded those idiots into taking on part-time jobs? It was me! I only meant it to be like a minor prank, but those guys got too cocky! Every one of them is a total moron! All they had to do was shut up and do as I say! Dammit, they piss me off!
    That little punk was always following my ass, the tagalong! When he was a little kid, he'd shit his pants and go, "Brother! Brother!" Sniveling and wailing... but look at him now! Who do you think you are, asking for help? Naoya! You're just a toy to me, you're my slave! Just do whatever I tell you to till the day you die!
    " (Before fighting the Phantom Thieves)

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Kazuya Makigami is a reference to Kazuya Toudou, an antagonist exclusive to the Megami Ibunroku Persona manga. Like this Kazuya, he had an antagonistic relationship with his brother Naoya.
  • Even though in The Day Breakers anime adaptation the Phantom Thieves decide to use Leblanc as bait to lure Kazuya and his gang, this same plan in the game was brought up but denied right away due to the troubles that may bring to the protagonist.
