P5R Showtime

Initiating Showtime in Persona 5 Royal

Showtime (ショウタイム, Shoutaimu)?, or Show Time in Japanese, is a battle mechanic in Persona 5 Royal and Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers.



Persona 5 RoyalEdit

Showtimes are combination attacks performed between members of the Phantom Thieves of Hearts. They can be unlocked after certain dates in the story, once the group meets at their hideout.

The party will first gain access to them during Kaneshiro's Palace, where an Orthrus is used by Morgana to demonstrate the mechanic.

They are accessible if:

  • A party member obtains a Baton Pass;
  • A party member loses 50% of their health or lower;
  • An enemy is critically injured.

Showtimes deal Almighty Damage and can be used against any enemy, even if they cannot be downed. The player can also skip the Show Time animation.

If Showtime is used against a boss, it will not display their model and the animation might appear slightly different.

Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom StrikersEdit

Showtimes are powerful attacks performed by members of the Phantom Thieves of Hearts. Though they technically act individually compared to Royal, the characters are accompanied by their Personas. The protagonist can summon any of his Personas instead of just Arsene.

Showtimes can only be used when the character's Showtime Gauge is filled in battle. Initiating Showtime will inflict a powerful attack on all enemies in the entire battle area.
