- "I can feel it... So this is who "I" am..."
- —Makoto Niijima, Persona 5
Makoto has short brown hair in a bob cut with blunt bangs, a braided headband and red eyes. She wears her school’s uniform without the standard blazer and revealing the black and red pleated plaid skirt. It is worn with a long sleeve white shirt, a black halter vest, black tights, and brown ankle boots.
Her burglar outfit consists of a skintight black leather suit that is worn with a long black scarf, shoulder and knee pads with spikes, white gloves, and wears an iron mask.
- "You're nothing but a disgusting fly swarming to dirty money! Shut your damn mouth, you money-grubbing asshole!"
- —Makoto Niijima to Junya Kaneshiro, Persona 5
Makoto is a perfectionist that has a strong sense of responsibility and would not yield to reality. Like her fellow High Priestess counterparts Fuuka Yamagishi and Yukiko Amagi, Makoto is intelligent, honest and very hardworking. In truth, she is a very compassionate and understanding young lady who works hard to make sure everyone is accounted for. Despite her immensely serious and mature nature, she does have her hidden, humorous elements, such as being frightened hearing ghost stories.
Makoto is a third year honor student and the president of the student council in Syujin High School. After shortly investigating them, she eventually finds herself joining the Phantom Thieves of Hearts.
Makoto purposely acts as bait into the Yakuza so that the Phantom Thieves of Hearts can follow behind. Once there Kaneshiro takes photos of the group for blackmail material than charges them for the photos as well as a special gift he had purchased for an escort or else. The group must change his mind before a certain deadline or risk losing everything.
If the Phantom Thieves of Hearts fail to stop Kaneshiro this leads to one of the numerous bad endings where he has Makoto kidnapped and drugged than rapes her and uses her as a forced prostitute of the Yakuza.
