Mementos is a location in Persona 5.



Persona 5Edit

  • Background Music: "Mementos"
  • Available: May 7
  • Deadline: December 24
  • Owner: The people of Tokyo/Yaldabaoth
  • Location: Shibuya Railway

Mementos is the Palace for everyone's hearts. Free missions unrelated to the story are done here so that they can steal the hearts of humans on these missions. The Phantom Thieves of Hearts explore the dungeon by using Morgana's bus form. While it is initially an optional place meant for grinding levels and solving optional missions, it later becomes the final dungeon when Yaldabaoth awakens his true form, the Holy Grail, within it. It appears to be a massive series of subway tunnels with wooden train tracks in place of rails, with various features of a prison such as chains or bars. Where a Shadow Self inhabits the area, the walls develop red cracks that resemble a spider web or fractal patterns, and the veins that power Yaldabaoth's regeneration become prominent.

Mementos is divided into multiple "paths", each of which has its own unique architecture and floors, referred as "areas". They are randomly generated and areas open up as the fame of the Phantom Thieves grows with each Palace they defeat.

  • Path of Qimranut: Consists of 2 areas.
  • Path of Aiyatsbus: Consists of 7 areas.
  • Path of Chemdah: Consists of 8 areas.
  • Path of Kaitul: Consists of 10 areas.
  • Path of Akzeriyyuth: Consists of 12 areas.
  • Path of Adyeshach: Consists of 13 areas.
  • Path of Sheriruth: Consists of 14 areas.
  • Path of Iweleth: Consists of 1 area and acts as an entrance to the depths of Mementos, within which the Holy Grail has hidden itself.

Its enemies are affected by weather in reality:

  • Thunderstorm: Increases appearance of rare enemies and items.
  • Torrential rain: Same as thunderstorm, but to a greater effect.
  • Pollen warning: Enemies may fall asleep in dungeons and request Eye Drops in negotiation.
  • Heatwave: Enemies may suffer Burn at the beginning of battle.
  • Flu Season: Enemies may suffer Despair (dying after 3 turns) at the beginning of battle.

All bad weather conditions also boost the appearance rate of rare Personas from shiny treasure chest.

Missions Edit

Mementos is also the setting of missions, called "requests", some of which are needed to progress Confidant links. After finding out a target's name in the real world, the protagonist must find and defeat the target's shadow in the Mementos in a boss fight to make the target have a change of heart.

"Beware the Clingy Ex-boyfriend" acts as a tutorial mission while other missions are received through Yuuki Mishima's chat messages, certain Confidants or certain part-time jobs.

Several Memento bosses are susceptible to Confusion. This weakness is one of the fastest methods to obtain money in Persona 5. A boss confused with the spell Pulinpa by a Persona with Confuse Boost and a high Luck value can drop up to 150,000 yen per turn at around a Luck level of 70.

List of EnemiesEdit

In general, demons that spawn in Mementos are the ones that were already encountered in previous Palace dungeons. Mementos will generate new floors based on story progress and act similar to Devil's Peak and Mikage Ruins from Megami Ibunroku Persona. The Reaper can also spawn if the player stays in the same floor for a long time.

Mementos Concept Art P5


  • Mementos is an auto-generated dungeon like Tartarus and the Midnight Channel.
  • Mementos becomes mandatory in December, as it generates a new palace to be entered by the Phantom Thieves.
  • Mementos, like all other Palaces, symbolizes one of the Seven Deadly Sins-in its case, Sloth or Apathy. Theologically, Sloth is the most complex of the sins, encompassing laziness (the desire to perform evil deeds or let them exist unopposed because it is easier than doing good), cowardice (evil born of fear), and despair (disaffection from life motivating selfishness and abandonment of moral and ethical duty). Acedia (Apathy) is the neglect to take care of something that one should do. It is translated to apathetic listlessness; depression without joy. It is related to melancholy: acedia describes the behavior and melancholy suggests the emotion producing it. In early Christian thought, the lack of joy was regarded as a willful refusal to enjoy the goodness of God; by contrast, apathy was considered a refusal to help others in time of need. When Yaldabaoth awakes, and the Conspiracy starts invoking its power to control Tokyo directly, it is shown in the city's populace choosing to believe an obvious lie (that somehow, the Phantom Thieves are not responsible for the high-profile reforming of several individuals), rather than a cutting truth (that Masayoshi Shido was a terrible leader, and yet most of Japan still voted for him because of nothing but raw charisma), showing cowardice. As the Phantom Thieves manage to find their way into Mementos' core, it's also revealed that the Shadow Selves that had inhabited Mementos have been willingly imprisoned by Yaldabaoth, choosing to let him dictate the future rather than allowing fallible humans to make their own decisions, showing both the laziness and despair aspects.
  • The paths of Mementos are named after the Qliphoth, specifically the versions given by William G. Gray in his book The Tree of Evil. This ties into the ultimate master of Mementos being Yaldabaoth, as the Qliphoth is taken to be the "shadow of God", just as Yaldabaoth is only a deluded impostor of Ain Soph, Kabbalah's name for God as He was before the creation of the world. In the Japanese version, names of these paths are given their literal meaning:
Path of Qimranut思想奪われし路Cognitation-robbing path (Materialism)
Path of Aiyatsbus調和奪われし路Harmony-robbing path (Instability)
Path of Chemdah節制奪われし路Temperance-robbing path (Greed)
Path of Kaitul美徳奪われし路Virtue-robbing path (Vice)
Path of Akzeriyyuth慈悲奪われし路Compassion-robbing path (Cruelty)
Path of Adyeshach感動奪われし路Sense-robbing path (Insensitivity)
Path of Sheriruth寛容奪われし路Tolerance-robbing path (Rejection)
Path of Iweleth見識奪われし路Wisdom-robbing path (Ignorance)
