‘Persona 5’: How to Rank Up the Sun Confidant (Toranosuke Yoshida)

Persona 5

There are a hefty amount of different confidants you can make in the world of Persona 5, but one of the most important is the Sun Confidant. This person is Toranosuke Yoshida, a disgraced politician you can see trying to drum up support early on in Station Square. However, you will not be able to actually meet with him until your curfew is lifted and you can explore all the districts at night.

To obtain Rank 1, you will need to show up to one of his rallies at night in Station Square after 5/6 and listen to his speech. You will learn that he likes to visit the Beef Bowl Shop, which means you’ll need to to get a job at this location. This can be done by finding their ad in a brochure at the bottom of the steps in the train station and then working there twice. On the second night, you will run into Yoshida and begin your confidant quest with him. Below are all of the right answers you need to give in order to rank up the Sun Confidant along with the abilities he will gift you.

  • Rank 2
    • Choice 1 – “I want to improve my speech”
    • Choice 2 – “I don’t know yet” / “One with conviction”
    • Choice 3 – “That was helpful”
    • Unlocks Diplomacy: Allows you to earn more money or items from negotiations
  • Rank 3
    • Choice 2 – “His speaking skills” / “His message”
    • Unlocks Fundraising: Allows you to demand more money during negotiations
  • Rank 4
    • Choice 4 – “I couldn’t help myself”
  • Rank 5
    • Choice 1 – “The media doesn’t matter” / “I think so”
    • Unlocks Manipulation: Raises the chance enemies will give a rare item
  • Rank 6
    • Choice 1 – “I don’t really care” / “I’m for them”
    • Choice 3 – “Stick to your beliefs”
  • Rank 7
    • Choice 1 – “You should decline”
  • Rank 8
    • Choice 1 – “That’s a difficult decision”
    • Choice 3 – “Stick to your beliefs”
    • Unlocks Mind Control: This ability lets you skip demon negotiations

The Sun Confidant is an exceptionally useful person to have on your side, due to the negotiation based powers being arguably some of the most frequently used in all of Persona 5. Being able to obtain more money and better items can really save you some cash and let you invest more in upgrading your weapons and armor. Remember, you won’t meet this confidant naturally through the story so don’t ignore him early on. Getting these passive skills early in your playthrough will make some of the earlier palaces easier to defeat.
