All Treasure Demons are modeled after luxurious jewelries or ceremonial stones instead of mythological figures. See their individual Shadow pages for more information.
Treasure Demons only begin appearing from May 18th onward in Madarame's Palace and subsequently the rest of the Palaces and Mementos. When opening a shiny treasure chest, there is a small chance the shadow of a rare Persona will pop up instead and attempt to escape from the protagonist. The chance of their appearance in Mementos can be boosted by venturing there during bad weather. There is also the infiltration item "Treasure Trap" (宝魔ホイホイ, crafting recipe from Morgana's Confidant rank 6 on July 25th) to multiply the appearance rate.
Fleeing from a Treasure Demon in Mementos will not cause it to respawn immediately: the party has to enter another battle with a Shadow to respawn the Treasure Demon on the field. This may be exploited to spawn the Treasure Demon that the protagonist needs to complete the compendium. Causing The Reaper to appear and engaging it in battle also helps respawn the Treasure Demon afterwards, however, the party's speed must be high to escape the Reaper battle.
When engaged against a Treasure Demon in battle, it will remain stumbled for few turns but quickly flee. Knocking it down and then asking it to join will obtain the Persona instantly. Because many of these Treasure Demons have a wide range of elemental resistances, it is recommended to rank up Shinya Oda's Confidant to unlock the skill "Down Shot" which guarantees knocking down the target regardless of resistance in exchange for firing all remaining bullets (or a portion of remaining bullets if one has ranked up his Confidant to 6). Another option is to gamble with Physical skills with a high critical rate (e.g. Lucky Punch, a skill available to Morgana) because none of the Treasure Demons except Stone of Scone null, repel or drain Physical damage.
Treasure Demons cannot be created via fusion, but can only be negotiated with and obtained in the dungeon.
Persona 5 RoyalEdit
Treasure Demons have been made significantly easier to handle compared to the base game, as the Treasure Demons can no longer innately resist, or in the case of the later Treasure Demons, Null or Reflect almost every Skill typing thrown at them.
With the sole exception of Koh-i-Noor, every Treasure Demon resists Physical and Gun skills, are weak to one type of elemental or force skill, and are neutral everywhere else.

Treasure Demons cannot be equipped for combat but can be used in fusion. Fusion with Treasure Demons will either rank a Persona up or down by 1 or 2 ranks in the same Arcana, this allows a simpler way to complete the Persona Compendium or deal with an issue when DLC Personas get in the way of the usual fusion recipe. Treasure Demons do contribute towards the completion rate of the Persona Compendium.
The result yielded from fusion with Treasure Demons takes the current level of another ingredient Persona into account instead of the fixed base level. That means one can train a Persona to the desired level in order to gain different Personas of the same Arcana out of this fusion. For example, one cannot fuse Regent with Arsène of level 8 or lower because there is no Fool Persona lower than level 8 besides Arsène himself, but one can fuse Regent with level 9 Arsène which yields Obariyon who is a level 8 Fool Persona.
Fusing two Treasure Demons simply results in another regular Persona.
