This article covers information on Yosuke Hanamura as a party member, including uses and strategies in Persona 4.

Overview[]

Yosuke is the first party member that can accompany the protagonist. He joins after April 15th, when Shadow Yosuke has been defeated.

Although Yosuke balances between Physical and Magic offense, he excels more with Physical attacks, being able to learn a Severe move of that type. Either way, although his hits will very rarely land Critical hits (due his low luck stat), their precision is sharpened by his very high Agility stat, allowing for increased accuracy.

When it comes to being defensive, his moderate Endurance is backed up by his high Evasion from his Agility value. Additionally, Yosuke can learn Sukukaja and Masukukaja, which can temporarily boost the Hit and Evasion rate of an ally or the entire party. Although very mild, Yosuke's healing abilities can help further support the Evasion stat whenever necessary.

Yosuke is able to inflict status ailments on enemies. He is also able to use Dekaja, nullifying stat bonuses of enemies.

Yosuke resists Wind attacks, and is weak against Electricity.

If the protagonist maxes out Yosuke's Social Link, his Persona Jiraiya will evolve into Susano-o. This will allow him to block Wind skills entirely, and develop a resistance to Fire. Additionally, Yosuke will gain the highest stat boost out of everyone, receiving three levels worth of points.

Persona 4 Golden[]

In Persona 4 Golden, if Yosuke's Social Link has been maxed out, during Winter, it's possible to get Yosuke's Persona to evolve into Takehaya Susano-o, further enhancing his elemental resistances: he will be able to absorb Wind and block Fire, although his weakness to Electricity applies to all his Personas now, not just Jiraiya.

Additionally, Yosuke will be able to learn Youthful Wind, which is able to mildly heal the entire party, and at the same time, temporarily boost their Hit/Evasion.
