Persona 5 Royal brought in tons of different elements over from Persona 5 but one thing the developers are the negotiations. As you must know that conversations are a huge part of Persona 5 Royal but so are taking down demons that everyone that stands in your way.

You don’t have to beat every demon to a pulp though, you can talk to these demons and even get some of them over to your side. This guide will show you how to initiate a negotiation in Persona 5 Royal.

How To Initiate A Negotiation In Persona 5 Royal

Negotiating with a demon depends on a bunch of factors but basically, all you have to do is when you progress in Persona 5 Royal you get to understand all the elemental weaknesses of the demons. To do this all you have to do is hit them with an attack that they are weak against.

As you progress you get the ability to talk, if you manage to knock all of the demons out at once, you will be able to initiate a Hold-Up. When this appears, you can either choose to go for an All-Out Attack or you can choose to Talk.

While you are in conversation with the demons, you can ask for money, items or for them to give you their powers.

Now, you have to remember that every time you kill a demon you will get items and cash for it, but you won’t get those things if you choose to get their powers.

There is a trick to getting their powers, by the way, only choosing to Talk won’t get you their powers, you have to sweet talk them into giving you their powers.

If you manage to choose all the proper conversation you will get the demon. Each demon has a different personality and it can be from one of these options:

  • Upbeat
  • Timid
  • Irritable
  • Gloomy

Now your job is to match your answers according to their personality traits. You won’t know what answer is so you’ll have to do a lot of guesswork.

But there’s a way to know what Personality likes what and dislikes what.


Demons with Upbeat personality will like Funny answers and will hate Serious of Vague answers. Demons with Timid personality will like Kind answers and dislike Vague and or Funny answers.

Demons with Irritable personality will like Serious answers and hate Vague or Kind answers, and finally, Demons with Gloomy personality will like Vague answers and hate Serious and Funny answers.

This should give you a hint as to what each and every demon is like. You will have to be careful while picking your answers.

This is all there is to know about demons and how to initiate a negotiation with them. Make sure that you check out our other guides on Persona 5 Royal.
