Persona 5 Royal Kasumi Persona Guide & Best Build

If you’re playing Persona 5 Royal, you’ll want to know what skills Kasumi can learn from her Persona, as well as which ones are most worthwhile to keep. This guide will help make sure that your Kasumi is the best Kasumi she can be and is taking full advantage of her persona at the end of the game.

Persona 5 Royal Kasumi Persona Evolutions

Like every other character in the game, Kasumi has 3 different evolutions for her Persona: Cendrillon, Vanadis and Ella.

Cendrillon is received when Kasumi activates her persona before the events at Nijima’s palace and again when she rejoins the party in January.

Cendrillon is upgraded to Vanadis when Kasumi’s Faith Confidant is maxed out to level 10. Vanadis also gains the Evade Curse ability.

Finally, Kasumi’s final Persona, Ella, is obtained by speaking with Kasumi during the bonus semester in January after her Confidant has maxed out. Ella gains the skill Masquerade, which deals two hits of severe physical damage, and her trait is upgraded to Veil of Sunrise, which gives the party a high chance of not being knocked down when struck by their weakness.


Kasumi’s Best Endgame Build

Kasumi, like everyone else, has 8 skills to pick from, and you want to make sure you have the best build possible. The top tier skills are:

MasqueradeAli Dance
Vorpal BladeBless Amp
MakougaonEvade Curse
Apt PupilArms Master

You don’t have too much wiggle room with Kasumi’s skillset. She doesn’t learn that many skills overall. From her base kit that she comes with, she learns Masquerade, Brave Step and Evade Curse. Masquerade is her best skill by far, so you should definitely learn it. Brave Step is semi-useless, since you can’t crit bosses and trash enemies will be dead in the first few turns with or without it. Evade Curse is alright. It’s better than some of her existing skills so you might as well take it. One thing you might want to consider is putting Arms Master on her in place of Diarahan, which you can learn from the Jazz Club on 1/22.

As for an accessory, I highly recommend either a Salvation Crown for the utility. She only normally gets Diarahan, which is alright, but Salvation allows you to use her in your party in place of a healer.
