Below is a list of skills present in Persona 5. For a list of skills in Persona 5 Royal, see List of Persona 5 Royal Skills.

  • Mid-bosses have increased resistance against all ailments inflicted by both Physical and magical skills. Major bosses (denoted with much bigger font of their names in the stat UI) are completely immune to all ailments.
  • All bosses are immune to instant death attacks except when they are inflicted with Despair under certain circumstances.
  • "Technical" only boosts damage dealt on the target under effect of the specific ailment. This alone does not knock down the target or prompt One More turn.
  • ↓ - denotes unique skill exclusive to paid DLC Persona of both original and "Picaro" variant, the latter is omitted in the list to avoid clutter.
  • The two main methods to obtain Skill Cards are fusing a Persona into a Blank Card (known in-game as "Itemize Persona (Electric Chair)" or Negotiation with Shadows. The latter case will be denoted with "(talk)."

Physical Skills[edit | edit source]

  • All Physical skills gain Technical damage bonus to enemies under Freeze or Shock, although the latter has a chance to transfer to the attacker.
