Both Persona 5 and the definitive Persona 5 Royal have been praised throughout the years as one of the best JRPGs of all time, for their in-depth wealth of features and mechanics. One that was already part of the Persona franchise, but refined for 5, is its Social Link system - altered for Persona 5 Royal to be named the Confidant system.

Along with added bonuses in or outside of battle depending on which Confidant you're dealing with, levelling up the rank of these relationships treat you to each person's personal side story - with some as emotionally captivating as Persona 5 Royal's main story itself.

Each Confidant has ten levels, which are levelled up by earning points via correct dialogue choices outside of their story or spending time with them via a side activity. Some of these dialogue options unlock more than others, one wrong choice meaning you'll have to spend more time ranking up a Confidant's level. To make the best and most efficient use of your time, we're going to have this Persona 5 Royal confidant guide for Sojiro Sakura (Hierophant) go through the confidant's benefits, along with the best dialogue choices to make sure you rank it up as fast as possible.
