The anonymous poll "Do you believe in the Phantom Thieves, or not?" with a mere 6.7% approval rating.

"There are probably a lot of people who have high hopes for the Phantom Thieves' next move. So I've also implemented an anonymous poll on the site. "Do you believe in the Phantom Thieves, or not?""
—Yuuki Mishima, Persona 5

Phantom Aficionado Website (怪盗お願いチャンネル, Kaitō onegai chan'neru)?, or simply the "Phan-site" (怪盗ch, Kaitō ch)?, is a website created by Yuuki Mishima to promote the Phantom Thieves of Hearts in Persona 5.

Persona 5[edit | edit source]

Yuuki with the popularity survey.

The Phan-site initially holds the anonymous poll "Do you believe in the Phantom Thieves?", and collects submissions of heist requests. Throughout the game, the poll questions change depending on certain story events.

During the fourth heist of the game, Mishima texts the protagonist telling him the fake Medjed group had deleted then restored the site as a means of proving their power.

After this, the site is hacked once again by the same group. Instead they use it and rig the Phantom Thieves' popularity to catch them off guard so they can frame them for Kunikazu Okumura and Kobayakawa's murder. (Although both murders were dealt by Goro Akechi.) The approval rate suddenly increases by double (And quickly spurts to around 93%) because of this, and Phantom Thieves merch can be seen being sold all over Tokyo. Right after Okumura's death, the poll will drop 30% daily due to the Phantom Thieves being framed as murderers. It is later revealed the fake Medjed is actually an IT president allied to Shido and that was a ploy to both get rid of Okumura for the scandals he caused, and to frame the Phantom Thieves.

During the final heist, the Phan-site is used to indicate the masses support for the Phantom Thieves during their battle against Yaldabaoth, allowing the protagonist to collect humanity's desire to not be controlled by an oppressive god to form the final attack, Sinful Shell that puts an end to the malevolent god's machinations.

The percentage of people agreeing on the poll depends on the Phantom Thieves' popularity and recognition by the public. At first when Mishima makes the site, the poll starts with around slightly less than 1%, steadily increasing to 30% at the subsequent three heists. After the Futaba heist, it will increase twofold, to close to 60% and when the fake Medjed tries to rig the poll in order to use Okumura to frame the Theives, the percentage of people agreeing goes to over 80%. Just before Okumura dies the percentage of people agreeing will go over 90%, only to drop drastically in the following days after his death. During both of these instances, the changes only take effect after Igor finishes addressing the protagonist. By the time of Sae's heist the support percentage will go under 1% again and will stay there until the Thieves disappear from the people's cognition after exploring Mementos Depths at December 24, dropping it right into 0%. However, in the final battle after the protagonist awakens Satanael and the masses begin to cheer on the Phantom Thieves against Yaldabaoth, the percentage of people agreeing will bounce to 100% and will drop after the battle. Near the end of the game, the percentage of people agreeing to the Phan-site will stay around 45%.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • If one pays attention, the approval rate of the Phantom Thieves increases to abnormal heights right after Igor praises and warns the protagonist before the Okumura heist (two-fold from the original rating instantly after he finishes talking). On a similar tangent, the same poll drops by 30% constantly right after his speech concerning the end of Okumura's heist where he was killed, with negative comments flowing in the next day. (The approval rate drop does not occur during the night where Okumura was killed, staying at 93% and comments left celebrate Okumura's death, only dropping right after Igor's speech). This foreshadows that the Igor in the Velvet Room is fake, and is in fact setting up plans in motion.
  • In Persona 5 Royal, the English text font from the original Persona 5 is used during the scene where people are cheering for the Phantom Thieves before Satanael's awakening. This is due to the scene being a pre-rendered cutscene.
