"The real Phantom Thieves will not make me suffer. They are MY allies!"
—Shadow Akane before fighting the Phantom Thieves, Persona 5 Strikers

Design[edit | edit source]

My Dear Joker looks like the protagonist as Joker but with vivid orange hair, dark skin and golden eyes.

Profile[edit | edit source]

Persona 5 Strikers[edit | edit source]

My Dear Joker is the cognitive version of the protagonist created by Shadow Akane Hasegawa to fight against the Phantom Thieves of Hearts. Due to her paranoia, resentment, and sense of betrayal she feels towards her idols, she believes My Dear Joker and the cognitive version of the Thieves she created are the real versions. She snaps out of it and calms down when they're defeated.

The protagonist is required to defeat this cognitive copy alone in order to advance to the next stage. Unlike most boss fights, due to the protagonist being the only available party member during that time, his defeat will result in an automatic game over.

Stats[edit | edit source]

  • Warning: My Dear Joker can execute any of these attacks in extremely quick succession and can follow up on the protagonist if he is Downed, allowing it to often combo unsuspecting players to death. It also moves and attacks at the same speed as the protagonist himself.
  • My Dear Joker is vulnerable to Technical Damage. A few scooters that were parked in the boss room can burn it if they are destroyed.
