Confidants are a big part of the lore of Persona 5 Royal but levelling people up to level 10 can often be quite difficult. In this article, I will be talking through everything you will need to know to max out a relationship with Ryuji Sakamoto. This is a Chariot Confidant guide and will only focus on Sakamoto!
Persona 5 Royal – Chariot Confidant Guide
Planning around the different schedules of the various confidants can often prove to be a headache, thankfully that isn’t the case with Ryuji. He can be found after school Monday through Friday, making him one of the least complex of all the social links.
The only potential trip-up with Ryuji is that a lot of his rank-up events can’t take place when it’s raining or the weather is bad which could stall progress. Otherwise, he is quite straight forward.
For those who aren’t aware the responses you give to your confidant can have a different impact depending on how much they enjoy it. Being vague or downright mean will often mean you get no bonus points towards levelling up, while a good answer will give a maximum of 3 points.
Of course to get the most benefit you HAVE TO have a Chariot arcana Persona equipped while meeting Sakamoto. This IS a Chariot confidant guide after all
