"The whole world is a product of cognition... ...not just the Metaverse. It can be freely re-made... The same goes for you, and everyone else. Soon a new world will come. One where mankind isn't held captive. The world will shine brightly as long as you hold hope in your hearts. Remember... There's no such thing as the "real" world. What each person sees and feels-- Those are what shape reality. This is what gives the world infinite potential. Even if you feel that only darkness lies ahead... As long as you hold hands together... See it through as one... ...the world will never end! The world exists within all of you...!"
Morgana is a playable character from Persona 5. He is a member of the Phantom Thieves of Hearts.
- Persona 5: Playable Character; Magician Confidant
- Persona 5: Dancing in Starlight: Playable Character
Morgana appears as a predominantly black cat with blue eyes and a white muzzle, paws, and tail tip who wears a yellow collar.
Morgana has the ability to shapeshift into an anthropomorphic and biped form with a large head and eyes, where the collar turns into a yellow bandana in addition to gaining a utility belt. Morgana lacks any visible cat whiskers in this form.
Morgana can transform into a van which is based on the.
In Persona 5: Dancing in Starlight, he wears a white t-shirt with an gold "M" logo and red scarf, and black sneakers. In additional, he also wears golden chain bracelet on his left wrist and a golden crown.
"I am NOT a cat! Say that again and I'll make you regret it!"
Initially, Morgana is extremely rude, arrogant, sarcastic and condescending. When in battle, he is also smug, frequently declaring "It's almost scary how good I am!" after scoring a critical hit or hitting a weak spot. He seems to really enjoy looking down on Ryuji, as he never passes an opportunity to insult his intelligence and often expects him to know things he has no way of knowing, making him something of an insufferable genius. Even on the rare occasions he gives a compliment, he nearly always follows it up with a snide remark e.g. "That's not a bad idea... for you, Ryuji!" In addition to being arrogant, Morgana is also rather self-serving for the first few months; he cares little for the group's goal of reforming society, and only helps them because their activities are what he believes to be his best way to become human again. He can also be apathetic and downright callous at times, as he couldn't understand why Ryuji and the protagonist were so concerned about the possibility of killing Kamoshida via destroying his palace.
Despite his cocky attitude, Morgana is also quite level-headed, having the sense to know when it's best to retreat and fight another day, as well as often warning the others not to let their emotions get the better of them. However, this level-headedness is not absolute, as anytime he sees something shiny, usually a Treasure, he loses all sense of reason and starts fawning over it. This proves to be his undoing in Madarame's Palace, where his touching of a golden vase containing a Treasure Demon results in the entire team sans Joker getting trapped in a laser cage. He's called out on this by Ryuji, since he was the one who was warning them to be careful up until then. Morgana is also very intelligent, as he displays extensive knowledge about Palaces and the Metaverse, though much of this tends to be hunches.
While appearing to be a cat, Morgana claims to be a human, and becomes irritated when called a cat. Morgana also dislikes being thought of as nothing more than a cat, as it lessens his sense of individuality. Despite this, Morgana often acts like a cat and self-grooms, and has a great love for sushi. Despite his feminine name, Morgana declares himself to be male. He constantly attempts to be more masculine than he naturally is, disliking being seen as a cute cat and wishes to be viewed as manly. This is reflected in the appearance of his Persona Zorro, which is highly muscular. While often rude and snarky, Morgana does have a kind side, as shown in his give-and-take deal with the protagonist. And while he often makes fun of Ryuji, he draws the line at rubbing salt in the wound; when Ryuji accidentally gets the team caught, Morgana states that the mistake they made was crucial, but not critical, and they would just have to recover from there on. He also shows a surprisingly gentlemanly side towards Ann, whom he develops a crush on for her kindness, bravery and beauty. That being said, even Ann isn't safe from Morgana's smart remarks at times, which are usually directed towards her terrible acting skills.
While he attempts to come off as gung-ho and confident, even being described by the other Phantom Thieves as speaking in a "high and mighty" tone, in reality he has little faith in himself and secretly dreads being abandoned and left alone, an insecurity that becomes extremely prominent in Futaba's Palace, when he is forced to admit that there are some things even he can't do. This gets even worse after Futaba takes over as Navigator and shows herself to be far more naturally talented than he is at it, succumbing to a jealousy so deep he temporarily abandons the Phantom Thieves to prove to them and himself that he doesn't need to rely on them, instead becoming Haru's assistant when she attempts to infiltrate her father's Palace. After this plan backfires spectacularly, he returns to the group, but is initially reluctant to team up with them again. He explains to them that, as someone who doesn't believe their cause, there's no reason to stay with them and believes they should split up. After some encouragement from Ann, Haru and, to a lesser extent, Yusuke, however, he admits that he wants to stay with them, saying it's the only place he belongs. After the group changes Okumura's heart, he admits that he was so hung up on wanting to be human because he needed a purpose in life, but now he's going to do what it takes to ensure the Phantom Thieves succeed.
"...Not letting that happen! Human hope is a desire too! You better not underestimate it! The Phantom Thieves will yield to no one, no matter who they are! Even if only one of us remains, we'll get back up and fight to the very end. And we'll definitely... definitely...! Take the world!"
Morgana is a mysterious shapeshifting cat-like being that joins the protagonist in his heists after being rescued in the dungeon of Kamoshida's Palace by the protagonist and Ryuji Sakamoto. Morgana becomes interested in the protagonist and Ryuji after meeting them, so he decides to teach them about the other side and watches the protagonist due to an interest in his power. Morgana is unsure of his origins and seeks answers, although he is convinced he was a human at some point. Morgana theorizes the core of Mementos may have the answers.
In the real world, Morgana simply appears as a normal cat and normal people cannot understand him, simply hearing him meow a lot. However, in the Metaverse, any person who hears him talking gains the ability to hear him talk in his cat form. According to Morgana, this is due to the person learning to interpret his cognition and thoughts.
Morgana can change into a variety of other forms, including a van that the Phantom Thieves use as transportation to explore the Mementos dungeon (though he cannot create air conditioning, which becomes a problem when entering the desert-based Futaba's Palace).
For most of the game, he remains a loyal friend and guide to the Palace and its mechanics. However, he quickly develops a rivalry with Ryuji, who Morgana dislikes for his clumsiness and sometimes foolhardy personality, while Ryuji becomes annoyed with Morgana's often superior attitude and overconfidence.
One night, Morgana's insecurities of his own identity manifest in a dream as Shadow Morgana. However, the truth of this nightmare is up to interpretation.
After Futaba joins the team, this comes to a head when Ryuji jokingly points out during the beach trip that she is a naturally better Navigator and more generally useful than he is, which offends and upsets Morgana and leads to an argument between the two while the Phantom Thieves are debating whether to attack Kunikazu Okumura's Palace. He eventually storms out, deciding to show he can infiltrate a Palace by himself and prove he is not rendered obsolete by Futaba, and is almost immediately defeated by the Palace's Shadows, who only leave him alive because they do not regard him as a threat.
He is saved and nursed back to health by Haru Okumura, who retains the ability to understand his cat form in the real world due to having been inside the Palace. After learning about her personal troubles, he decides to help her become a Phantom Thief despite her lack of a true Persona at that time due to her unwillingness to acknowledge her somewhat more selfish motives in rebelling against her father. When the true Phantom Thieves show up to steal Kunikazu's heart, Morgana introduces Haru as "Beauty Thief" and claims her to be a far better apprentice than the other Thieves-a claim that is immediately undercut by Haru's inexperience and shyness. After a couple attempts to maintain his dignity despite Haru's obvious incapability without her own Persona, he realizes he was acting irrationally and rejoins the team after they promise to help Haru as well.
When the party are defeated by Yaldabaoth at the core of Mementos, Morgana ends up in the Velvet Room and regains his memories. It is revealed that Morgana was created by Igor to assist the protagonist in his journey, after he was imprisoned and replaced by Yaldabaoth.
After defeating Yaldabaoth, Morgana's existence tied to Mementos causes him to dissipate from existence as Mementos does the same, leaving the Phantom Thieves heartbroken. Before disappearing, Morgana gives the Phantom Thieves an inspirational message.
However, during the day the protagonist is freed from his confinement, Morgana returns to Cafe Leblanc in cat form. He explains that only his other world self disappeared and he returned in his normal cat form likely due to the Phantom Thieves keeping him in their minds. While he reappeared back in Shibuya, he decided not to follow the Phantom Thieves home, instead waiting until the protagonist's release from Juvenile Hall to return, much to the anger of the party. Hearing the protagonist's departure next month, Morgana decides to follow him and find a way to become human, believing that even though he was not human originally it does not mean he cannot become one.
In the epilogue, he is seen sabotaging a car with two spies before going on vacation together with the party.
"Skillful infiltrations and escapes to all manner of places... There's even the possibility that you used special tools and had someone who manufactured them... ...Answer me!"
Morgana's Confidant unlocks automatically on April 15th and ranks out during fixed events during the Story. Maxing this Confidant makes Zorro evolve into Mercurius and unlocks the fusion of Futsunushi.
Morgana's farewell gift after maxing his Confidant is Morgana's Scarf, allowing the protagonist to use Pickpocket in New Game+ once their Confidant has been established. According to Morgana upon receiving it, it is the only remnant of his original thief costume when returning to the real world.

Morgana's role in the manga is mostly the same as in the game. In the manga adaptation, Morgana appears before Ryuji and the protagonist after they confront Kamoshida for his role in Shiho's suicide attempt. Not only does Morgana agree to help the two, but he also reveals he found the Treasure of Kamoshida's palace before meeting the boys.

|PERSONA 20th Anniversary Festival|
- Morgana is actually the second talking cat in the series, the first being Lieutenant General Zula from Persona 2: Eternal Punishment.
- Morgana appeared at 2016 E3 to promote Persona 5. (Video on the right)
- Morgana's dialogs in the real world are accompanied with the onomatopoeia "Meow~/Nya~" to indicate that other people cannot understand his words.
- In the Japanese version only, Morgana uses the archaic first person pronoun 'wagahai' (ワガハイ/吾輩), which has an arrogant tone. This may be a reference to Natsumi Soseki's 1905 satire novel (Wagahai wa Neko de Aru).
- Despite Morgana's opposition to be treated like a cat, Morgana explains a cat transforming into a vehicle is something engraved into (Japanese) people's mind, indirectly referencing the from the anime movie directed by Hayao Miyazaki.
- Atlus created a real life Morgana-van.It had a tail.Morgana also came to see his ride.
- One of the early ideas was for Morgana to be a sports car, however, he would have been too small to fit the entire gang and so the idea was scrapped.
- Morgana's actual gender was initially made ambiguous. The name itself is traditionally used for females and the character is performed by female voice talents in both the Japanese and English versions. However, in the beginning of the story when the names of all party members are concealed, Morgana's voice is described as a "boyish voice." Morgana's initial Persona Zorro is male even though few other major human characters in the series possess Personas of opposite gender or even genderlessness. After defeating first target in Mementos, Ann asks if Morgana is a boy or girl, to which Morgana identifies as male. Ironically, despite being male and not liking to be seen as cute, some of Morgana's costumes are feminine.
- In the Persona 5 panel at Anime Expo, Morgana's English voice actress, Cassandra Morris claimed Morgana is gender neutral and does not identify as male or female.(7:34:30) However, this contradicts Morgana's "Of course I'm male!" in the game. This should not be mistaken as a fact since this was during an improv panel and Morris was in a humorous mood, later Tweeting, "I identify as a bus."
- In episode 25 of Persona Stalker Club, Atlus invited an art teacher to demonstrate the making of a mini needle felted Morgana doll. A plushie Morgana also comes with the Persona 5 Take Your Heart Premium Edition.
- Morgana is the only playable character to be able to summon a Persona without requiring a Mask. Morgana's head has the appearance of a mask with eye holes similar to his Persona Zorro in the more common appearances of the source material.
- Morgana's code name is a direct reference of Monā, the mascot cat created by textboard users.
- Coincidentally, Mona is also the name of the island where Captain Kidd reportedly buried his fortunes.
- Morgana is the second Magician to specialize in Wind magic rather than Fire, the first being Yosuke Hanamura from Persona 4.
- Just like Teddie, Morgana is seeking answers to his origins. When Morgana is under panic in battle, he makes bear-puns as a reference to Teddie.
- Morgana is the first Navigator that can do fighting and navigation at same time. Before Futaba joins, if Morgana is knocked out in battle he does not faint. Instead, he runs away to the back stage and becomes the Navigator. Any party member can still use any revival item or skill on him and put him back on front row.
- Due to this, he also becomes the first one whose dialogues become affected by the Status Changes he gets inflicted with.
- Although Morgana's running animation in the Palace which transforms his legs into a swirling vortex may be interpreted as being inspired by the Roadrunner or Sonic the Hedgehog, it is also possible that it comes straight from  's comical expression.
- When thinking of a way to reach the floating bank in Kaneshiro's Palace, Ryuji asks if Morgana can bring out some sort of flight tools. Morgana retorts that he is not some "robot cat" (Doraemon) who can source all kinds of futuristic gadgets from his fourth-dimensional pocket with the most recurring one being the for flight.
- In the Japanese version, when Morgana is transformed into a rat in battle he will make noise reminiscent of who is also voiced by Ikue Ōtani. Also, in one of the phone texts, the protagonist may say "Morgana, I choose you," a probable reference to "Pikachu, I choose you."
- When Morgana changes into a bus, his pose is similar to the transformation poses of Showa Era Kamen Rider.
