"These scoundrels have threatened me. Aren't the police supposed to side with law-abiding citizens?"
Kunikazu Okumura is a character from Persona 5.
- Persona 5 / Royal: Major Character (Antagonist)
- Persona 5 The Animation: Major Character (Antagonist)
Kunikazu is a bespectacled older man who wears a business suit and an orange and brown checkerboard ascot under a white shirt.
Shadow Kunikazu wears a mostly black, form-fitting spacesuit with the same colors as his undershirt, and has blue skin. Unlike most bosses, he does not have a demon form - as Mammon, he calls out a floating chair before radioing a group of robots to protect him. The design bears a striking resemblance to Darth Vader's suit.
"Overcome failure at any cost, even if it means betraying others."
Kunikazu is an ambitious and career-focused professional who is always chasing his next victory. Unfortunately for his daughter, his ambitions come with a complete, deliberate ignorance of the pain he causes to his company or his family. No matter how many scandals Okumura Foods faces due to its poor safety practices and punishing work hours, or how obviously unhappy Haru is with his manipulations, Kunikazu refuses to let his nobler passions influence his business, instead behaving as ruthlessly as he feels he must to get ahead in the world. In fact, his Shadow Self admits that he sees nothing wrong with using Haru as a political pawn, as he believes it is mandatory to use whatever means to gain fame for his own profit, and becomes furious when he realizes Haru is "betraying" him with the assistance of the Phantom Thieves of Hearts because she fully realized that she has been used as a political pawn against her own will.
His Shadow is also quite cowardly as he has no method of defending himself nor transforming himself into a more powerful demon form. Instead tries to kill the thieves by triggering a self-destructing mechanism in his palace and lures them into a trap once they finally reach him. Once that is seen through he attempts to stall as much time as possible using his Cognitive robot workers to delay his defeat by them for him to self destruct the Palace and run away. This is even worse in Persona 5 Royal where his cognition of Haru was revealed to be an obedient asset to his path to glory. If everything else fails, he will turn her into a robot and use her as a suicide bomb to damage the party just like the other robot workers. In battle, Shadow Okumura also tends to call the real Haru a mockery of his daughter, indicating that if she didn't want to get sold by him, he would no longer treat her as his daughter.
By the events of the game, he is a cold and heartless businessman with a feverish pursuit for power, he is not as evil as the previous few targets, and numerous proof in the game indicates that he is a significantly better person in the past who treated Haru with great care. When Haru was young, she felt highly upset for him not arriving to cheer her for her first sports day because he was busy in work. Big Bang Burger also used to be a honest company that he poured his heart to maintain, instead of the black company it is during the events of the game, indicating that he is nothing more than a man who is corrupted by the seeking of power beyond all belief. As he didn't see Haru as an asset for gaining power prior to the events of the game, she is actually traumatized and guilt ridden when his mental shutdown is broadcast on screen. Furthermore, Mariko Hyodo, one of his business partners and also a friend of Haru, acknowledged that Okumura used to genuinely care for her, as the three used to play golf together, and Hyodo does express condolences towards his death. It should also be noted that unlike western societies, arranged marriage itself is acceptable in Japanese society, although the man that Okumura arranged for Haru is a loathesome playboy who merely treated her as a sexual plaything.
Haru's cognition of him, as seen by Takuto Maruki's berserk cognition warping powers is actually a clumsy businessman who has no interest in politics. He is also a genuinely caring parent for her, to the point that he comes across as rather overprotective. Should the protagonist eavesdrop him in Shibuya's Big Bang Burger branch during the window where he has to snap out all of his allies, it is also revealed that he used to care for his employee's well being more than the profit of his business ventures. This indicates that he was not the corrupt corporate executive that he is portrayed in the game during the past, up until his burger chain became famous and he tried to politically compete with Shido in the current presidential election regardless of consequences.
He is also somewhat immature in his tastes, as the Big Bang Burger chain is inspired by a model kit he loved as a boy, but could never afford until he achieved success and paid off his own father's loans. Politically, it can be assumed he is a liberal, as he actively attempts to compete with Masayoshi Shido, a hardline nationalist for presidency.
"Now, let's move on to your next crime. Kunikazu Okumura... You should know who he is. ...Considering what happened. Your testimony regarding this incident will be serious. I'm sure you understand why. Answer my next question carefully. What did you do to this Okumura?"
Kunikazu Okumura is the third president of Okumura Foods succeeded from his father. He founded Big Bang Burger, a fast food chain that the protagonist can shop in during his free time.
Kunikazu only has one daughter, Haru Okumura. Both Kunikazu himself and Haru had mutually admitted that he used to genuinely care for her in spite of his rather unethical and overambitious business practices, up until he attempts to arrange a marriage for her with Sugimura, a loathesome man who does not treat her as anything other than "a plaything" for the sole reason of trying to compete with Masayoshi Shido for presidency.
He is one of the heist targets of the Phantom Thieves of Hearts at his own Palace. Initially prosecutor Sae Niijima notices Okumura's fast food business heavily benefits from his rivals' deaths from the mysterious mental shutdowns and psychotic breakdowns carried out by the Conspiracy, a fact that is learned by the thieves after they have stolen the investigation documents from Sae's laptop. After the Medjed incident, Okumura's heist request ranking in the Phantom Aficionado Website suddenly surges with loads of comments against his business practices. The Phantom Thieves are initially indecisive about reforming Okumura, but settle down when Haru joins them to escape her doomed marriage.
His Palace is a spaceport formed from his desire for success to the point of a complete refusal to acknowledge how much he is hurting Haru or his employees with his overly ambitious business and political ventures, with full knowledge what kind of person Haru's arranged fiance Sugimura is, but does so anyway because that is the only way that he can possibly have enough power for presidency, which is why he represents the sin of greed. The main inhabitants of his Palace are the cognitive existences of his workers, which take the form of robots that devote to him and are devoid of any emotion, symbolizing that he views his workers as dispensable labor. The robots are also used to fuel the spaceport that acts as this Palace when they go defunct, indicating he considers his workers as easily sacrificable.
After he receives the calling card, his Shadow activates a 10 minute self-destruct timer in his Palace in an attempt to kill the thieves in an explosion while he escapes to utopia. Once the party reaches him, he tries to subdue the Phantom Thieves by tricking them into separating from Haru and capturing the rest by pretending to have already reformed, but Morgana manages to escape the force field and hits the remote control he was using with the slingshot. During his boss fight, he sits on a floating chair and summons multiple waves of his robots to attack the party. Recognizing he is not nearly strong enough to beat the Phantom Thieves directly, he activates a thirty-minute self-destruct timer and hangs back while his robots attack the party. After the party takes down all of his forces including his right-hand man Execurobo MDL-ED, Shadow Okumura is left alone, unable to fight off the thieves and is eventually brought down.
Because he is shown to genuinely care about Haru and regularly feels deeply conflicted about his obligation to his business and his daughter, the Phantom Thieves come to respect him as an opponent. When his Treasure is stolen, he attempts to reveal the identity of the head of the conspiracy that had manipulated him but the Thieves are forced to retreat because of the tight time limit. When the Shadow Self is alone, Goro Akechi kills the Shadow according to the plan.
His Treasure is a spaceship model kit that takes the form of a glowing orb with a metallic shell in the Metaverse, and the appearance of his Palace is based on this model kit. Kunikazu wanted this model kit when he was young, and it is now a valuable collectible. The thieves sell it to celebrate at Tokyo Destinyland.
During his press conference of October 11th, Okumura admits of his maltreatment of his employees. Just as he is about to reveal the true culprit behind the mental shutdowns, he suddenly suffers a heart attack-like affliction and dies on camera, much to the horror of the Phantom Thieves and much of the general public.
When the Phantom Thieves infiltrate Shido's Palace, it was revealed that his heist request was rigged by the Conspiracy in order to rig the Phantom Thieves into a trap, so they can be framed for his murder. The person behind it was also the same person behind the blank Medjed threats that kickstarted the heist on Futaba Sakura. Masayoshi Shido also wanted him to be removed from the get-go, as he poses a threat against him during the presidential elections. In addition to the constant scandals that his company was often tangled in, this made him an incredibly lucrative target to remove alongside the Phantom Thieves. When confronted by Haru however, Shadow Shido has no real recollection of this incident despite it occuring pretty recently, and merely disses him as an insignificant roadblock to be crushed in his way to fame.
Persona 5 RoyalEdit
Okumura's role is largely identical in the original game. This time, his cognition of Haru appears in his Palace. Cognitive Haru is depicted as an obedient asset that allows him to cast three support skills at once, which includes buffing his robots, debuffing the party or issuing a self-destruct order. After the party defeats the MDL-ED Execurobo, he dispatches cognitive Haru as an last ditch attempt to dispose of the party, transforming her into a robot that self-destructs after two turns. Once cognitive Haru is sacrificed, he is rendered helpless exactly like in the original game.
Okumura is first mentioned in the third term events by Haru during Hatsumode as one of the strange personalities that the protagonist's friends would spend their new year with. He is then personally seen a week later alongside Haru in Kichijoji trying to open a new Big Bang Burger front. He is now heavily implied to be what he was prior to arranging Haru's marriage to Sugimura for the sake of politically competing with Shido, a clumsy and unambitious businessman who genuinely cares for his daughter. This however, was actually an illusion created by Takuto Maruki, who warped history so in this reality, he never died nor did his political and corporate ambitions went to destructive levels. Once Haru snapped out of the illusion, he vanished.
Before the protagonist snaps out all of his teammates from Maruki's spell, Okumura can be seen discussing business affairs with Takamura in Shibuya. This Okumura also personally inspects his branches for flaws and cares for his employee's well being, instead of being obsessed with pure profit.
If the protagonist cuts a deal with Maruki to let him overwrite the current reality, Okumura will be seen hanging out with Haru during the credits.
Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom StrikersEdit
While Okumura does not directly appear, it was revealed by Mariko Hyodo that they were trade partners, and when he still cared for Haru, the three would play golf together. She also sympathizes with Okumura's death, indicating that she also knew that Okumura cared for Haru prior to the events of Persona 5.
Before starting the fight, it is recommended to stock up on around 20 revival items, many of which can be bought at Tae's store, since many party members will likely be KOed during the fight several times. Torimeshi Rations and Yakisoba Pans are also recommended, just don't use them if Big Bang Challenge is about to be used. It is also important to try to conserve SP since there's a chance everyone may run out at the end. Haru's Triple Down skill is quite useful.
This battle has a special condition where the battle must be finished in 30 real world minutes. Thus, it is best not to spend too much time overthinking commands or stalling on dialogue.
This battle is not directly facing Shadow Okumura himself, but rather several waves of Corporobo minions. The player must defeat all Corporobo minions in order to directly attack Shadow Okumura and end the fight. No more than 4 Corporobo minions will be present on the field and once one wave has been defeated, the next wave is immediately deployed. If Okumura gets a turn, he will deploy new minions to fill in the ranks. Even though it is possible to knock down all of the Corporobos, All-Out Attacks are not possible as Shadow Okumura is technically an active member on the enemy team, just untargetable.
Using Baton Passes are key to quickly move through each wave. Having the Star Confidant with Hifumi Togo established before this fight makes the fight easier as each Corporobo has two specific weaknesses while resisting all others. Having the ability to switch out your allies to respond to each new type helps to speed up the fight. The starting party should be based on your access to Koma Sabaki/Togo System. If you have it, starting with Ann and Morgana will help you focus the starting Corporobo types while the third slot can be either Yusuke or Haru will give you an early set up for when the second Corporobo types appear. Continue switching out to whatever the new Corporobo weakness are until you reach the final phase. If the Star Confidant has not been established, ensure that at least one battling member will cover a weakness of each Corporobo. Ideally, Morgana and Haru should be included as Morgana deals with the first and fourth wave while Haru deals with the second and fifth wave. The third person can be either Ryuji or Makoto to handle the third wave. In either method, it is recommended that the Protagonist carry Personas that have Wind, Psy and Elec/Nuc skills to match his teammates and keep the Baton Passes continuing.
Shadow Okumura starts off with 4 Corporobo MDL-WKRs. They are weak to Wind and Fire spells so make sure that Morgana or Ann are present at the start of battle. Shadow Okumura will summon 10 of these total. Once the tenth Corporobo MDL-WKR has appeared, he will begin deploying Corporobo MDL-CH, who is weak to Ice and Psy spells. Yusuke and Haru are incredibly useful for taking these Corporobos down. Once the fifth Corporobo MDL-CH has appeared, he will begin deploying Corporobo MLD-AM, who are weak to Electric and Nuclear skills, so having Ryuji and Makoto out during this phase speeds things up. Once the fourth Corporobo MDL-AM has appeared, he will deploy Corporobo MDL-DM.
Corporobo MDL-DM starts the second phase of this fight as Okumura begins using new tactics. Okumura will begin using a Sacrifice Order command, causing a Corporobo to self-destruct, dealing massive damage to your party, but also killing the Corporobo as well. Your only options are to either quickly defeat the Corporobo targeted by this command before its next turn, or guard and mitigate the damage. Shadow Okumura will also begin inflicting Famine's Breath, causing hunger on one of your allies, severely reducing their damage output for three turns. Corporobo MDL-DM are weak to Wind and Bless so Morgana is great for this phase. Once the third Corporobo MDL-DM has been defeated, he summons Corporobo MDL-GMs who are weak to Curse and Psy skills so Haru is good for this phase.
After the second and final Corporobo MDL-GM is defeated, the final phase of this fight starts with the Execurobo MDL-ED appears. The Execurobo has no weakness, but also no resistances, thus the fight becomes a slugfest from here on out. It is recommended to favor physical skills (such as Haru's Triple Down instead of Psio, or Yusuke's Tempest Slash instead of Bufula), especially if Makarakarn is active on MDL-ED. If Haru is within the party, the Execurobo has a preference for targeting her. Since it tends to favor physical attacks, having Haru defend herself with Tetrakarn (if nothing else is being telegraphed) is a good way to keep her alive and inflict damage back at Execurobo. Okumura continues to use Famine's Breath and occasionally Famine's Scream which inflicts Hunger on all of your allies, and he may also debuff your allies or use Dekaja, so if you're low on SP, so it is not wise to use party-wide buffs constantly (although buffing party-wide Defense before Big Bang Challenge should be fine).
Execurobo has a dangerous attack called Big Bang Challenge which inflicts massive damage to your all party members. Thankfully, this move is telegraphed by Big Bang Order the turn before he uses it so guarding before he executes this move will mitigate the damage. Big Bang Order is actually a form of Charge, so the upcoming Big Bang Challenge will always hit with increased damage. Additionally, if an ally is inflicted with Hunger during the turn this move is executed, they will instead be healed and the Hunger status removed, so this ally may attack or use a turn instead of guarding which is a waste. If the Execurobo used Big Bang Challeng and Okumura cast Famine's Scream in the same turn, do not cure any hungry party members because it fully heals anyone with the status. Unfortunately, if an ally's Confidant has reached rank 6, they may remove Hunger with Harisen Recovery (excluding Morgana who has Harisen Recovery by now). Nothing can really be done about this as delaying a Confidant isn't recommended, although it should not be a major issue. Big Bang Order will also always be used immediately after each instance of boss dialogue during this phase of the fight.
Near the end of the fight, Execurobo will be using Big Bang Challenge more often, meaning the player must try to find a strategy to defeat it ASAP. If an ally definitely doesn't have enough HP to survive Big Bang Challenge even with guard, the player should make the most of their abilities and revive them after they are KOed.
Once the Execurobo is defeated, Shadow Okumura is forced onto the field as he has run out of allies. At this point, he no longer has the strength to fight back and can be taken down after just a few physical attacks. If he does get any turns, he will waste them hesitating.
Persona 5 RoyalEdit
Okumura is significantly harder in Royal. Although the enemies are nearly identical to the original game with weaker affinities, he now automatically resets his entire wave if the party does not destroy all robots on screen within two turns, even if only one severely crippled robot remains. The only exception is when a robot self destructs without other any other robots left on-screen, in which the fight will proceed normally. There is no in-game warning before this happens. He can repeat this process indefinitely and stall the party until the 30-minute timer runs out, so the party must be well prepared with stronger personas and a definite strategy to induce damage output before they go after him. All other basics during this fight, such as Baton Pass and not curing Hunger right before Execurobo casts Big Bang Challenge still apply.
If the party does not possess enough damage output to kill the stronger robots within 2 turns on Hard difficulty, temporarily adjusting the difficulty to Merciless will increase the damage output dealt, although the protagonist should prepare personas with physical resistances or immunities in-case. Vice versa, if the party has trouble dealing damage on Normal, reducing the difficulty to Easy or Safety will make the robots easier to kill.
Haru must also be in the team as well, as she is the only way to reliably damage the MDL-GM robots bar the protagonist and functions as a great damage source against the Execurobo using Tetrakarn. Furthermore, she can reduce the odds of party members getting inflicted with Hunger using her trait. Any Curse or Psy users should also be equipped with a Curse or Psy-boosting necklace purchasable for 40,000 yen each in Kichijoji, if possible. Several Psy or Curse damage inducing items are strongly recommended to facilitate Baton Pass as all of the robots summoned by Okumura are of the same type, and personas with powerful psy or curse attacks are near mandatory as otherwise the MDL-GMs are very difficult to kill within two turns. Reliable SP recovery is virtually a must, and Dekunda or Baptismal Water, purchasable for 1000 Yen from the Kenda Church substituting them, as well as at least 6 Psycho/Curse Bombs are strongly recommended. Playing Billiards and Darts in Kichijoji can also rank up respectively technical damage and Baton Pass and cause them to deal more damage. Torimeshi Rations and Yakisoba Pans are required unlike in Persona 5 in case if crucial party members are hungry.
Unlike in the original game, none of the robots resist gun, making gun attacks, most notably Triple Down, effective finishers for following up after hitting a weakness on them. All of the robots, including the Execurobo are also now vulnerable to Freeze, Shock, Mute, Panic or Dizzy, which can facilitate huge amounts of technical damage with Physical, Gun or Psy skills, especially when combined with Baton Pass. Therefore, skills and items that can inflict these conditions are strongly recommended and can significantly ease progress. Unlike Bael and again just like the robots fleeing and regenerating themselves, the game does not tell the player anything about this, so one needs to find this out by trial and error without any foreknowledge.
He will also order all of his robots to gang up on a single party member: 4 MDL-GMs using Megaton Raid on the protagonist at the same time are most likely lethal. He will not shift targets until he and his robots get their turns. After defeating the third wave, Okumura, via Cognitive Haru can cast Rakukaja on a robot, followed by a debuff or Famine's Scream on the party, so be prepared to cure hunger and use Dekunda on the party and Dekaja on the robots. If he gets a turn after this, he will issue a sacrifice order on one robot. The Star Confidant can be highly useful for swapping the appropriate party members to deal with any of the robots quickly.
If Hunger hits anyone that is required to damage a specific robot kind or Rakukaja is used on any robot, remove them immediately or it will facilitate him to regenerate all of them, as the party is unlikely to deal sufficient damage during the time window should they be inflicted with Hunger or a robot has Rakukaja on. It might also be wise to keep a lone robot with a self-destruct order placed on it alive and guard, as if a robot self-destructs and there are no other robots on screen, Okumura will instantly shift to the next wave, although it is advisable to heal after that.
MDL-GM robots are the biggest threats in this fight, as they are extremely difficult to kill within a 2-turn window without extensive fore-planning. A common phenomenon is that only one MDL-GM robot remains in the battle field after two turns with only a string of health left, Okumura retreats the robot and he forces the party to start over, while he follows up by casting Rakukaja and Famine's Scream, looping the party until the 30-minute timer runs out. This is because the robot's defense stat is increased by Rakukaja. In order to prevent this, use Baptismal Water or Dekaja to remove the defense buff immediately, and use a hunger curing item to remove Hunger if the protagonist or Haru is hit with it.
To take down the MDL-GM robots, the following procedure is the most optimal:
- Dekaja/Marakunda/Baptismal Water on the first move to remove Rakukaja from a robot, if the protagonist or Haru are hungry, remove that with Me Patra as well.
- Next member should use a Psycho Bomb or Curse Bomb on one GM, then baton pass to another empty member. Repeat this on the second member on a separate GM.
- Haru should use a single target Psio to down the final two robots before baton passing to the protagonist.
- The Protagonist will have a level 4 Baton Bass, with his moves capable of being executed for no cost. Use a party-wide Psi attack or Triple Down to deal massive damage to all robots on screen.
The MDL-ED retains the same features as his Persona 5 counterpart, aside that Okumura can cast Rakukaja on it as well. Be prepared to remove it if it is cast, while possible, otherwise it will become very difficult to kill. Unlike the previous waves, there are no turn limits in killing the Execurobo, although the party can run out of time trying to kill it, especially if the previous robot waves took over 15 minutes to kill. Mute or other immobilizing conditions are highly useful against it as they allow technical damage and prevents him from starting Big Bang Order > Big Bang Challenge for a duration where the status is set on him. However, Panic does not work on the Execurobo.
After defeating the MDL-ED robot, he will send Cognitive Haru to dispatch the party. While it can only use regular attacks that do around 40 damage, Okumura will use Sacrifice Order on it after it's worn down enough and it will self-destruct on the next turn. Any damaged party members should heal, then guard, as the self destruct order will deal extreme amounts of damage to them. There is no point attempting to take down Cognitive Haru via brute force as it has high amounts of HP, so one might as well as simply let it self-destruct.
Okumura then will be rendered vulnerable after Cognitive Haru fails to dispatch the party and can be defeated easily just like before. Interestingly, his base HP appears to be significantly lower compared to his Vanilla counterpart and can be killed in a single hit even said hit does 20 damage.
The boss has a time limit of 30 minutes. If the player does not defeat him in time, it will trigger a unique game over cutscene.
- If the party does not defeat all MDL-WKR to MDL-GM Robots within 2 turns, they will flee and Okumura will reset the entire wave.
- All Corporobo are vulnerable to Panic, Mute, Dizzy, Freeze or Shock.
- Execurobo is vulnerable to Mute, Dizzy, Freeze or Shock.

Kunikazu (邦和) can loosely mean "international peace/diplomacy." Okumura (奥村) means "abstruse/deep-village."
- Kunikazu's death (bleeding black liquid from his orifices) is reminiscent of a scene in Persona 3 where a victim dies similarly.
- Kunikazu's poor treatment of his employees and ambition to enter the political circle is likely based on (渡邉 美樹), who was originally the CEO of the restaurant chain where a female worker committed suicide allegedly for working severely overtime. Despite the scandal, Watanabe was elected to the House of Councillors representing the (conservative) in 2013.
- Shadow Kunikazu's costume is very reminiscent of the super villains in the 1980's science fictions. The panel before his torso is particularly similar to 's from the franchise.
- Shadow Okumura's plot to escape to utopia in a flying saucer and destroy everything left behind is a call back to the Millennium Kingdom project from Shin Megami Tensei II and Xibalba/Ameno Torifune from Persona 2.
- Okumura is the only target that the protagonist (Or any Phantom Thieves of Hearts members bar Haru) never personally met in Persona 5. In Royal however, the protagonist will personally encounter him from January 3rd to January 8th.
- According to Haru in Persona 5: Dancing in Starlight, Kunikazu owned a Yacht.
- Shadow Kunikazu is the only target of the Phantom Thieves that does not transform when fought.
- Texts written on the crane devices which convey the robots in Kunikazu's boss battle are:
