"The whole world is a product of cognition... ...not just the Metaverse. It can be freely re-made... The same goes for you, and everyone else. Soon a new world will come. One where mankind isn't held captive. The world will shine brightly as long as you hold hope in your hearts. Remember... There's no such thing as the "real" world. What each person sees and feels-- Those are what shape reality. This is what gives the world infinite potential. Even if you feel that only darkness lies ahead... As long as you hold hands together... See it through as one... ...the world will never end! The world exists within all of you...!"
—Morgana, Persona 5

Morgana is a playable character from Persona 5. He is a member and the second-in-command of the Phantom Thieves of Hearts.

AppearancesEdit

DesignEdit

In the Metaverse, Morgana is an anthropomorphic and biped tuxedo cat with a large spheroidal head. His fur's predominantly black, with the exception of his limbs and tail, which also appear white. The bottom front half of his face is also white. Morgana wears a mask that covers the majority of his face (which can be unbuttoned from behind) with elliptic eyes which consist of white sclera, blue irises and black pupils. His outer ears black with white inner ears. In addition, he has a yellow scarf around his neck and an utility belt with two bags around his hips.

In the real world, Morgana retains the anatomy of a normal cat. His head is no longer covered by a mask, and it's predominantly black with the exception of his muzzle, which is white. The sclera in his eyes is now blue instead of white, and he's lacking in pupils. He wears a yellow collar in place of his scarf and no longer wears a belt.

In the Metaverse, Morgana can transform into a van which is based on the Citroën H Van. The paint is dominantly black, with three yellow stripes on the hood (with the middle one being the thickest) and though they are symmetrical with one another, they are asymmetrically aligned with the vehicle itself, as they converge toward his left windshield. On the grille, there's a small golden emblem representing Morgana's biped head. In addition, the headlights represent his eyes, his ears are attached on the front side of the roof, and his tail is attached on the back. Unlike a normal vehicle, it can also bend.

In Persona 5: Dancing in Starlight, Morgana appears in his anthropomorphic form. He retains his mask, but no longer wears an utility belt. Instead, he wears a white t-shirt with a gold "M" logo. There are small "BAD⭐CAT" letters engraved below. He attains a large red scarf and black sneakers with gold shoelaces and white soles. He also wears a large gold crown on his head, with large "KING" letters carved around it, repeating the same word twice. Red diamond shaped gems are engraved between those letters, with the exception of those between "G" and "K," as they're shaped like stars instead, serving as word spacing. Additionally, he also wears a golden chain bracelet on his left wrist.

PersonalityEdit

"Don't call me a cat! I am Morgana!"
—Morgana meeting the protagonist and Ryuji

While appearing to be a cat, Morgana claims to be a human, and sticks with the team as he believes they'll be able to help him regain his true form. Morgana becomes irritated when he's called and being thought of as nothing more than a cat, as it lessens his sense of belonging; this is likely one of the reasons that instigated his heated relationship with Ryuji Sakamoto. Despite this, Morgana often meows, self-grooms, and has a great love for sushi. Despite his feminine name, Morgana declares himself to be male. He constantly attempts to be more masculine than he naturally is, disliking being seen as a cute cat and wishing to be viewed as manly and competent, which is where his overconfident and sassy personality comes from. This is reflected in the appearance of his Persona Zorro, which is highly muscular.

Morgana is quite sassy, as he seems to enjoy teasing his teammates, especially Ryuji. In a twist of irony, Morgana shows a surprisingly gentlemanly side towards Ann Takamaki, whom he develops a crush on for her kindness, bravery and beauty. That being said, even she isn't safe from Morgana's smart remarks at times, which are usually directed towards her terrible acting skills.

Despite his cocky attitude, Morgana is actually quite level-headed, having the sense to know when it's best to retreat and fight another day, as well as often warning the others not to let their emotions get the better of them. However, this level-headedness is not absolute, as he's shown to get engrossed by stuff he perceives as valuable, especially "the embodiment of human desire". When something that fits that description is in display, he loses all sense of reason and starts fawning over it, as demonstrated with Kamoshida's treasure. This proves to be his undoing in Madarame's Palace, where his touching of a golden vase containing a Treasure Demon results in the entire team sans Joker getting trapped in a laser cage.

While often cheeky and otherwise outspoken, Morgana does show a softer side; while looking after the protagonist in their give-and-take deal, he's very encouraging and supportive towards him and his growth. And while he often makes fun of Ryuji, he draws the line at rubbing salt in the wound; when Ryuji accidentally gets the team caught, Morgana states that the mistake they made was crucial, but not critical, and they would just have to recover from there on. Morgana seems to look after Futaba Sakura while she was still learning to open up - he once noticed she went out on her own, so he followed her in case anything bad happened to her. At one point, she let the protagonist know she traveled to a different district on her own, to which Morgana was really concerned over, and requested that they go look for her. He is also deeply touched by the "Cake Knight Rises" protagonist's passion to fight for his friend, despite otherwise considering the movie to be ridiculous. Morgana is also very intelligent, as he displays extensive knowledge about Palaces and the Metaverse, though much of this tends to be hunches.

While he comes off as gung-ho and confident, even being described by the other Phantom Thieves as speaking in a "high and mighty" tone, eventually that sense of conviction starts to fade, as he's failed to find anything about his past for months on end and even starts doubting whether he's human in the first place. Since Morgana doesn't have anywhere else to go, he decides it's best he stays with the Phantom Thieves. However, when Futaba takes over as Navigator and shows herself to be far more naturally talented than he is, Ryuji calls Morgana's role in the team into question, though in the form of an innocent joke. This leaves him at a standstill, as he feels he no longer has a good enough reason to stay with the thieves.

Due to his newfound lack of self-esteem, Morgana tries to seek validation from his friends, e.g. checking how much value they have in his ability to transform into a van; but since they don't take that ability seriously, he loses merit in it himself. Morgana tries to bottle up his troubles and deny the feelings the group implanted into him, but this only worsens the situation, as his desperation to fit in likely deluded him into believing that his friends are only in interested in themselves and have stooped down to a level he himself's been trying to avoid, all due to to the team's inaction involving Okumura. This causes him to abandon the Phantom Thieves to prove to them and himself that he deserves to stay, instead working with Haru when she attempts to infiltrate Okumura's palace. Eventually, Haru's abusive fiance finds Haru and tries to abduct her; Morgana's determined to save her as shown by him blindly jumping on her fiance's leg and yelling for help after he's hurt from the fight. Though he tried to endure his injuries, he took Haru's troubles seriously - the group's agreement to help her out was what brought Morgana back to his senses and realize how much he wronged them.

Initially, Morgana's reluctant to return back with the Phantom Thieves. He explains to them that, since he no longer has anything to bring to the table and that it's unlikely he'll turn back into a human, there's no good reason to stay with them and believes they should split up. After some encouragement from Haru, however, he admits that he wants to stay with them, saying it's the only place he belongs. After the group changes Okumura's heart, he admits that he was so hung up on wanting to be human because he needed a purpose in life, but now he's going to do whatever it takes to ensure the Phantom Thieves succeed.

Profile Edit

Persona 5Edit

"...Not letting that happen! Human hope is a desire too! You better not underestimate it! The Phantom Thieves will yield to no one, no matter who they are! Even if only one of us remains, we'll get back up and fight to the very end. And we'll definitely... definitely...! Take the world!"
—Morgana to Yaldabaoth, Persona 5
Morgana trapped

Morgana imprisoned in Kamoshida's dungeon.

Morgana is a mysterious shapeshifting cat-like being that joins the protagonist in his heists after being rescued in the dungeon of Kamoshida's Palace by the protagonist and Ryuji Sakamoto. Morgana becomes interested in the protagonist and Ryuji after meeting them, so he decides to teach them about the other side and watches the protagonist due to an interest in his power. Morgana is unsure of his origins and seeks answers, although he is convinced he was a human at some point. Morgana theorizes the core of Mementos may have the answers.

In the real world, Morgana simply appears as a normal cat and normal people cannot understand him, simply hearing him meow a lot. However, any person who hears him talking in the Metaverse gains the ability to hear him talk in his cat form. According to Morgana, this is due to the person learning to interpret his cognition and thoughts.

Morgana can change into a van that the Phantom Thieves use as transportation to explore the Mementos dungeon (though he cannot create air conditioning, which becomes a problem when entering the desert-based Futaba's Palace).

For most of the game, he remains a loyal friend and guide to the Palace and its mechanics. However, he quickly develops a rivalry with Ryuji, who Morgana dislikes for his clumsiness and sometimes foolhardy personality, while Ryuji becomes annoyed with Morgana's often superior attitude and overconfidence.

Shadow Morgana

Shadow Morgana in a nightmare.

One night, Morgana's insecurities of his own identity manifest in a dream as Shadow Morgana. However, the truth of this nightmare is up to interpretation, as Morgana's Shadow Self has been converted into his Persona Zorro.

After Futaba joins the team, this comes to a head when Ryuji jokingly points out during the beach trip that she is a naturally better Navigator and more generally useful than he is. But Morgana's feelings of unbelonging has him take those words to heart than as a joke, which begins to upset him deeply over time. This leads to an argument between the two while the Phantom Thieves are debating whether to attack Kunikazu Okumura's Palace. He eventually storms out, deciding to show he can infiltrate a Palace by himself and prove he still belongs in the team, but is almost immediately defeated by the Palace's Shadows, who only leave him alive because they do not regard him as a threat.

HaruAppears

Morgana on Haru's side.

He is saved and nursed back to health by Haru Okumura, who retains the ability to understand his cat form in the real world due to having been inside the Palace. After learning about her personal troubles, he decides to help her become a Phantom Thief despite her lack of a true Persona at that time due to her unwillingness to acknowledge her somewhat more selfish motives in rebelling against her father. When the true Phantom Thieves show up to steal Kunikazu's heart, Morgana introduces Haru as "Beauty Thief" and claims her to be a far better apprentice than the other Thieves-a claim that is immediately undercut by Haru's inexperience and shyness. However, his friends' willingness to help Haru was what helped Morgana realize he was acting irrationally and rejoins the team.

When the team's efforts to expose Shido are left null by the general public, Morgana decides to reveal to everyone that it's possible to change the masses' hearts by stealing the treasure from the depths of Mementos, thus erasing the Metaverse. Though for Morgana, it's likely that he thought (or knew) that erasing the Metaverse would mean he'd have to disappear as well, as he's shown to hesitate and later hint at his fate.

When the party is defeated by Yaldabaoth at the core of Mementos, Morgana ends up in the Velvet Room and regains his memories. It is revealed that Morgana was created by Igor to assist the protagonist in his journey, after he was imprisoned and replaced by Yaldabaoth.

After defeating Yaldabaoth, Morgana's existence tied to Mementos causes him to dissipate from existence as Mementos does the same, leaving the Phantom Thieves heartbroken. Before disappearing, Morgana gives the Phantom Thieves an inspirational message. After the protagonist is confined, Morgana's words and admiration are what inspire the remaining members of the team to wake up from their slump and do what they can to free him.

However, during the day the protagonist is freed from his confinement, Morgana returns to Cafe Leblanc in cat form. He explains that despite his other world self disappearing, he returned in his normal cat form likely due to the Phantom Thieves keeping him in their minds and approving his belonging in the team. While he reappeared back in Shibuya, he decided not to follow the Phantom Thieves home, instead waiting until the protagonist's release from Juvenile Hall to return, much to the anger of the party. Hearing the protagonist's departure next month, Morgana decides to follow him and find a way to become human, believing that even though he was not human originally, it does not mean he cannot become one.

In the epilogue, he is seen sabotaging a car with two spies before going on vacation together with the party.

ConfidantEdit

"Skillful infiltrations and escapes to all manner of places... There's even the possibility that you used special tools and had someone who manufactured them... ...Answer me!"
Sae Niijima talking about Morgana, Persona 5

Morgana's Confidant unlocks automatically on April 15th and ranks out during fixed events during the Story. Maxing this Confidant makes Zorro evolve into Mercurius and unlocks the fusion of Futsunushi.

Morgana's Follow Up attack, gained after reaching Rank 3 of his Confidant after the completion of Madarame's Palace, has him transform into bus form and strike all enemies on the field for a critical hit.

Morgana's farewell gift after maxing his Confidant is Morgana's Scarf, allowing the protagonist to use Pickpocket in New Game+ once their Confidant has been established. According to Morgana upon receiving it, it is the only remnant of his original thief costume when returning to the real world.

Persona 5 The Animation The Day Breakers Edit

Morgana is first seen in the subway with the protagonist, Ryuji, Ann and Yusuke. Morgana transforms into a van and they enter the Mementos.

Later, Morgana acts as a sound signal when Kazuya Makigami and his gang raid Cafe Leblanc. Morgana helps fight Kazuya in the Mementos and delivers the key to Naoya Makigami.

Persona 5 MangaEdit

Morgana's role in the manga is mostly the same as in the game. In the manga adaptation, Morgana appears before Ryuji and the protagonist after they confront Kamoshida for his role in Shiho's suicide attempt. Not only does Morgana agree to help the two, but he also reveals he found the Treasure of Kamoshida's palace before meeting the boys.

Trivia Edit

Morgana at E3

Morgana at E3

Morgana promoting Persona 5 at 2016 E3 (full video here).

MorganaReal

A Morgana mascot made numerous appearances in publicity events.

  • Morgana is actually the second talking cat in the series, the first being Lieutenant General Zula from Persona 2: Eternal Punishment.
  • Morgana appeared at 2016 E3 to promote Persona 5. (Video on the right)
  • Morgana's dialogues in the real world are accompanied with the onomatopoeia "Meow~/Nya~" to indicate that other people cannot understand his words.
  • In the Japanese version only, Morgana uses the archaic first person pronoun "wagahai" (ワガハイ/吾輩), which was used by older men of high social stature and has an arrogant tone. This may be a reference to Natsumi Soseki's 1905 satire novel I Am a Cat (Wagahai wa Neko de Aru).
  • Despite Morgana's opposition to be treated like a cat, Morgana explains a cat transforming into a vehicle is something engraved into (Japanese) people's minds, indirectly referencing the Catbus from the anime movie My Neighbor Totoro directed by Hayao Miyazaki.
  • Atlus created a real life Morgana-van.[1][2][3]It had a tail.[4]Morgana also came to see his ride.[5]
  • One of the early ideas was for Morgana to be a sports car, however, he would have been too small to fit the entire gang and so the idea was scrapped.[6]
  • Morgana's actual gender was initially made ambiguous. The name itself is traditionally used for females and the character is performed by female voice talents in both the Japanese and English versions. However, in the beginning of the story when the names of all party members are concealed, Morgana's voice is described as a "boyish voice." Morgana's initial Persona Zorro is male even though few other major human characters in the series possess Personas of opposite gender or even genderlessness. After defeating first target in Mementos, Ann asks if Morgana is a boy or girl, to which Morgana identifies as male. Ironically, despite being male and not liking to be seen as cute, some of Morgana's costumes are feminine.
    • In the Persona 5 panel at Anime Expo, Morgana's English voice actress, Cassandra Lee Morris claimed Morgana is gender neutral and does not identify as male or female.(7:34:30) However, this contradicts Morgana's "Of course I'm male!" in the game. This should not be mistaken as a fact since this was during an improv panel and Morris was in a humorous mood, later Tweeting, "I identify as a bus."
Morgana plush

Morgana in plushie form.

  • In episode 25 of Persona Stalker Club, Atlus invited an art teacher to demonstrate the making of a mini needle felted Morgana doll. A plushie Morgana also comes with the Persona 5 Take Your Heart Premium Edition.
  • If the protagonist lacks the train fee to make a return trip to Yongen-Jaya, Morgana will use his secret savings to give him the needed amount of money to return to there, preventing him from getting stuck with no way to progress.
  • Morgana is the only playable character to be able to summon a Persona without requiring to take off his Mask.
    • Additionally, Morgana is the only playable character whose Mask isn't made out of solid material; it's likely made out of fabric.
  • Morgana's code name is a direct reference of Monā, the Shift_JIS art mascot cat created by 2channel textboard users.
  • Coincidentally, Mona is also the name of the island where Captain Kidd reportedly buried his fortunes.
  • Morgana is the second Magician to specialize in Wind magic rather than Fire, the first being Yosuke Hanamura from Persona 4.
  • Just like Teddie, Morgana is seeking answers to his origins. When Morgana is under panic in battle, he makes bear-puns as a reference to Teddie.
  • Morgana is the first Navigator that can do fighting and navigation at same time. Before Futaba joins, if Morgana is knocked out in battle he does not faint. Instead, he runs away to the back stage and becomes the Navigator. Any party member can still use any revival item or skill on him and put him back on front row.
    • Due to this, he also becomes the first one whose dialogues become affected by the Status Changes he gets inflicted with.
  • Although Morgana's running animation in the Palace which transforms his legs into a swirling vortex may be interpreted as being inspired by the Roadrunner or Sonic the Hedgehog, it is also possible that it comes straight from Doraemon's comical expression.[7]
  • When thinking of a way to reach the floating bank in Kaneshiro's Palace, Ryuji asks if Morgana can bring out some sort of flight tools. Morgana retorts that he is not some "robot cat" (Doraemon) who can source all kinds of futuristic gadgets from his fourth-dimensional pocket with the most recurring one being the Take-copter for flight.
  • In the Japanese version, when Morgana is transformed into a rat in battle, he will make noise reminiscent of Pikachu who is also voiced by Ikue Ōtani. Also, in one of the phone texts, the protagonist may say "Morgana, I choose you," a probable reference to "Pikachu, I choose you."
  • When Morgana changes into a bus, his pose is similar to the transformation poses of Showa Era Kamen Rider.
  • Like Junpei Iori and Kenji Tomochika from Persona 3 and Yosuke Hanamura from Persona 4, Morgana's attempt at romance ends tragically, as Ann doesn't return his feelings. This is especially shown on Valentine's Day, as Morgana is sighing if the protagonist chose to date Ann.
    • Unlike Junpei and Yosuke, however, Morgana does not show any form of jealousy towards the protagonist for his Wild Card ability (though Yosuke kept his jealousy secret and didn't reveal it until the end of his Social Link).
  • In the OVA Dark Sun..., Morgana attempts to explain why they did not steal Sae's treasure to her, but she can only hear him meowing. This indicates that a person needs to enter the Metaverse by themselves to hear him talk; They cannot hear his words even if their Shadow Self has encountered him inside the Metaverse.
  • In Persona Q2, unlike the other Phantom Thieves of Hearts that turn into their usual clothes when inside the Cinema, Morgana is always in his Metaverse form both inside the Cinema and in a Labyrinth. This might be due to the game taking place inside the collective unconsciousness and his existence is tied to the Velvet Room, and thus subsequently he is tied to the collective unconsciousness itself, resulting in him appearing in his Metaverse form when inside any place related to the collective unconsciousness, Metaverse or otherwise.
