—Shinya Oda to the protagonist, Persona 5

Shinya Oda is a character from Persona 5.



Shinya has dark hair and dark eyes. He wears a red cap hat that reads "Get Smoked" on the front in yellow.

The collar, pockets, cuffs and bottom are blue with yellow horizontal lines. He has an elementary school backpack. His blue jeans are rolled up halfway between his knees and ankles, and he has blue shoes with white lace.

Profile Edit

Persona 5Edit

Shinya is an elementary school boy who plays at the Gigolo arcade of Akihabara. He takes pride in his marvelous power in a certain online gun shooting game, and is known as the boy genius player. He seems to long for the “power” of the Phantom Thieves of Hearts. The protagonist met Shinya in Akihabara Gigolo while looking for a firearms instructor to defeat the Shadow Self of Yoshikuni Nejima, a notorious arcade cheat in Shibuya Gigolo (as his cognition of being invincible made his Shadow superhumanly evasive). and they play a shooting video game where Shinya was able to easily beat the protagonist. As the Confidant progresses, it's revealed that Shinya's inferiority complex flows from the pressure his mother Hanae puts on him, in particular her desire to see him crush his competition and swallow his compassionate traits, believing that this will help him succeed in life-and more importantly for her, salvage her own ego for not having the success she wanted.
