The initial Persona (初期ペルソナ, Shoki Perusona)? is the Persona that represents the most inner thought of its host. As a beginning Persona, its ability is usually relatively weak, so the mythological or historic figure that the Persona takes form is often less significant in the respective mythology or history, though there is some exception.

As the Persona "closest" to the user, the initial Persona will always be able to be summoned by the user, even if they previously returned it or transformed it into another Persona, as shown by Yukino Mayuzumi, Kei Nanjo and Eriko Kirishima having regained their initial Personas in the Persona 2 duology and the Investigation Team having regained their initial Personas in Persona 4 Arena.
