The ranking of the best Persona 5 Royal characters according to players has fallen. It creates a real debate within the community. In question the position of a character appreciated or hated according to the points of view.
To celebrate 25 years of the Persona license, ATLUS and Sega have launched a survey around the franchise’s most popular game: Persona 5 Royal. The publisher has indeed asked players to choose their favorite characters among the Phantom Thieves and the least we can say is that the results are debated.
Persona 5 Royal Favorite Character Ranking
Persona 5 Royal has passed the milestone of 3.3 million sales worldwide. An absolute record for the franchise, whose previous best sales did not even reach one million. To say it’s the franchise’s best-loved and most popular installment would be an understatement at this point, especially as the game has seen a resurgence thanks to its arrival on Xbox Game Pass and Switch. To celebrate this milestone, the Japanese publisher has unveiled the results of its poll to elect the fan favorite character. Who of Makoto or Yoshizawa won the hearts of players the most?
- Makoto Niijima
- Kasumi Yoshizawa
- Futaba Sakura
- goro akechi
- Anne Takamaki
- Yusuke Kitagawa
- Ryuji Sakamoto
- Haru Okumura
A list that creates a debate within the community
Unsurprisingly, the hero, alias Joker, tops the list of favorite characters in Persona 5 Royal. He is followed by the trio of player-favorite heroines, Makoto, the top of the class, Yoshizawa, the red-haired athlete from the Royal version, and Futaba, the outspoken geekette. It’s more the bottom of the list that creates a real debate within the community, with strong reactions as possible. Some do not indeed understand the place of Ryuji in the ranking, which sits in the penultimate position. On social networks, many are those who wonder how he can get behind Yusuke or Morgana.
This top based above all on the tastes of Asian players, some believe that the popularity of the blonde in the West can largely be explained by the performance of American actor Max Mittelman. Others feel that the vulgarity of the sidekick of Joker and its colloquial language displease Japan and earn it this place. Another part of the community was taken aback to see Haru in last place, but that’s hardly a surprise. She’s always been the least popular character, not least because of her far less screen time than the rest of the Persona 5 Royal cast.
