- —Shadow Futaba to her true self, Persona 5
Shadow Futaba (シャドウ双葉) is a character in Persona 5.
- Persona 5: Major Character
Shadow Futaba is Futaba Sakura's repressed feelings and the master of Futaba Palace. Unlike most Shadow Selves, she is born partially from positive emotions (Futaba's love for her mother, suspicion she was murdered, and will to live), and as a result she is not hostile to the original Futaba, instead trying to stop the Sphinx from driving her to suicide. While initially hostile to the Phantom Thieves of Hearts, being infuriatingly cryptic and triggering the occasional trap, this was born out of the belief that stealing Futaba's Treasure would hurt her even more. When she realized the Thieves were hired to help save Futaba from herself, she becomes much more friendly and assists them by confronting Futaba while the Thieves distracted the Sphinx. When Futaba regains the will to live, she accepts her Shadow and Shadow Futaba is willingly transformed into her Persona Necronomicon.
