The Velvet Room is a staple feature of the recent Persona games. This is a mystical location that only the protagonist has access to, and will allow you to perform various functions related to managing the protagonist’s persona. In Persona 5 Strikers, the Velvet Room returns once again to provide Joker the necessary tools to fuse, strengthen, and register Personas at his disposal. In this page, we will discuss one such feature: Executions or simply Persona Fusion.
Fusion is very straightforward; you’ll need two parent/material personas that will be “executed” or used as materials to create a new persona. If you already have these personas in your stock, then the actual fusion will be free. However, if you don’t possess the required persona(s), you’ll have two options to get them:
* Keep fighting enemies inside a jail and hope that a mask of that persona drops.
* Or pay the required fee to summon the required personas from your Registry.
The second option is more convenient; however if you have the Bond Skill “Joker’s Wild”, you’ll be able to get masks more often and use them as material personas and save some money from summoning the required persona from the registry.
Fused personas will usually have higher stats and better skills than the ones you can find in the “wild” so registering often after leveling them up or using them in battle (or even fresh after fusion) is recommended. Furthermore, some high-tier personas can only be acquired through this method.
During the fusion process, you’ll be able to inherit some of the skills of the parent personas. This is a great way to customize a persona’s loadout such as inheriting passive skills that will nullify or remove the persona’s weakness against certain attacks, boost their chance to inflict status ailments, complement their offensive skills, and more. Take note that not all skills can be inherited on a persona. The skills available for inheritance will be displayed for your selection before confirming and proceeding through the fusion.
As much as possible, consider the persona’s stats as well for the skills they’ll inherit. For example, personas that have high ST (strength) stats will be able to effectively use physical attack skills while personas with high Ma (magic) stat will be able to deal more damage with magical attacks.
Finally, personas will learn skills as they level up. There will be times that you’ll have to level up a persona to unlock its skills before using it as a fusion material. This is going to be useful especially on specific Prison Mail
requests. As a general note, don’t forget to register new personas in your Registry. If ever you have a better or updated version of the persona already registered in your compendium, it’s still worth overwriting the old version and keep the updated version for your convenience.
Personas that were created through fusion may get Stat Bonuses. A persona will most likely receive stat bonuses when you use a persona that’s been repeatedly used in fusion. The registry will take note of the number of times a persona is used in Fusion. The more fusions that persona went through, the higher the chance it will obtain Stat bonuses upon fusion.
