The Best Accessories For Every Character | Persona Q2

It’s not unusual for an accessory, a Persona game accessory at least, to completely change the performance of a single character. In the original Persona Q, there were accessories that switched stats around, potentially completely changing a unit into something else. These exist in Persona Q2, but the game has expanded to feature far more content, party members and indeed equipment, so your choices have significantly expanded. That being the case, we’ve taken the time to record the accessories that we feel most benefit every single battle character in the game!

Head over to https://megamitensei.fandom.com/wiki/List_of_Persona_Q2:_New_Cinema_Labyrinth_Items to find out more about the equipment detailed here.


Joker

Joker, Persona Q2
  • Chakra Ring: Halves SP Costs.
  • World Badge: Max HP +10% / Max SP +10%.
  • Witch Charm: +5 Magic.

In both of our other equipment articles, we’ve explained at length that we much prefer Joker being a magical character that supports from the back row. This limits his physical damage, but this really isn’t an issue when powerful spells are readily available in Persona Q2. That being said, and with a nod to his middling SP total, you’ll want to lean into accessories that help him to last longer. The issue with back row mages is always making their SP last on long labyrinth journeys, so whilst Chakra Ring is by far the best option, you could also consider the World Badge, after all the HP is nice to have. If you’re looking at a setup for a singular difficult battle, then the Witch Charm will help him to deal the maximum damage possible.

Ryuji

Ryuji, Persona Q2
  • World Badge: Max HP +10% / Max SP +10%.
  • Soulmate Coil: Moderately increase party meter gains.
  • Super Lucky Cat: Get 10% more money from winning battles / +2 Luck.

Much like his other recommendations, our accessories chosen for Ryuji are done so because he really doesn’t need a great deal of help with his role. He’s a tank, one of the best in the game, and his statistics tally up to mean two things; he’s not great at anything else, and he has everything he needs for tanking. That said, you can afford to get creative with his accessories, and we tend to choose the more unusual options for him. We like to switch between the Super Lucky Cat, when we’re repeatedly farming floors, or the Soulmate Coil when we’re progressing through a new one. Rotating these means you’ll always maximise what you need the most, either party meter or money.


Morgana

Morgana, Persona Q2
  • Chakra Ring: Halves SP Costs.
  • World Badge: Max HP +10% / Max SP +10%.
  • SP Adhesive 3: Recover SP Every Turn.

Our Morgana tends to get relegated to a supportive and healing role, neither of which he’s all that great at accomplishing, but either way he’s going to need as much SP as possible. If you’re on a long trek and he’s keeping your team alive, then it’s hard to go wrong with the SP Adhesive, since either of the other choices do not technically restore any, however for single battles you may want to consider either the Chakra Ring or World Badge, depending on the amount of incoming damage expected.


Ann

Ann, Persona Q2
  • Chakra Ring: Halves SP Costs.
  • World Badge: Max HP +10% / Max SP +10%.
  • Witch Charm: +5 Magic.
  • SP Adhesive 3: Recover SP Every Turn.

Ann’s accessory choices are similar to Morgana’s above, but it’s worth noting that her statistics mean that she’s more tailored towards dealing damage, by way of a greater Magic stat. In every statistic other than Agility and a very slight loss in health, she’s superior to him in every way. That said, the reasoning behind these choices are similar, since you’ll want her SP pool to last as long as possible, but we do like to consider the Witch Charm from time to time to give her damage a little bump further. As usual, consider the World Badge for harder battles where damage is likely to be incoming on both rows.


Haru

Haru, Persona Q2
  • World Badge: Max HP +10% / Max SP +10%.
  • Logos Mirror: Max HP +25%.
  • Ambition Fob: Max HP +15%.

Two things hold Haru back from being one of the best tanks in Persona Q2. Firstly, she doesn’t have innate access to some of the better skills, and secondly she’s lacking in the health department, at least compared to her role brethren. The first can be countered through judicious usage of skill cards, so we’re not too concerned there, but by far the best way to counter her health deficit is through accessories. Logos Mirror is obviously fantastic in this regard, but reasonable alternatives are the World Badge and Ambition Fob, specifically because of the rarity of the Logos Mirror, though we’d argue there are only one or two other characters that benefit from it as much as Haru.


Yusuke

Yusuke, Persona Q2
  • Rudra Ring: Halves HP Costs.
  • World Badge: Max HP +10% / Max SP +10%.
  • Logos Mirror: Max HP +25%.
  • Festival Drum: +5 Strength.

Were it not already apparent from our best party members article, Yusuke is by far our favourite physical attacker in Persona Q2. The reasons for this are numerous, however one of the main reasons for this is his massive Agility, meaning he’ll likely go first no matter the situation. Sadly, he’s also one of the worst defensive units you can pick for the front lines, with middling Endurance and a low HP total. That said, you’ll really want to take advantage of the Rudra Ring whenever possible, since he’ll be spamming HP costs a great deal of the time. Consider the World Badge for other situations, and perhaps even the Logos Mirror if you’re really struggling to keep him alive. If you’re confident, feel like trusting dodge RNG and have some good aggro redirection, then going all in on the Festival Drum for more Strength is a great, if risky, option.

Akechi

Akechi, Persona Q2
  • Chakra Ring: Halves SP Costs.
  • World Badge: Max HP +10% / Max SP +10%.
  • Witch Charm: +5 Magic.

Being the dark side to Joker’s light, despite what their outfits might suggest, the two function in a similar-yet-different fashion. They’re both ideally suited for the back row, but Akechi is less concerned with dealing damage and more with hampering the opponents progress, thanks to spells like Debilitate and Sleuth Insight. That said, the accessories that they want are very similar. Mainly you’re looking to reduce his SP load, for which the Chakra Ring is superior, but we’ll continue to nod at the Witch Charm for a more aggressively built Goro.


Makoto

Makoto, Persona Q2
  • Chakra Ring: Halves SP Costs.
  • World Badge: Max HP +10% / Max SP +10%.
  • SP Adhesive 3: Recover SP Every Turn.

It’s no secret that Makoto struggles in Persona Q2. She’s pretty good from a magical perspective, but her stats also include a good Strength stat, which clashes with her lower than average HP and woeful Endurance. This combines to mean that she’s not great on the front row, so she’s relegated to the back row, which is filled with superstar options across the three rosters. Either way you’ll want to focus her into a magical role, and equipping the Chakra Ring will keep her powerful Nuke spells coming over and over again. World Badge is again recommended for difficult single battles, and the SP Adhesive is great for long journeys and indeed a healing role, where you really cannot afford for SP to ever run out.


Female P3 Protagonist

Female P3 Protagonist, Persona Q2
  • Sense Mirror: Critical Rate +15%.
  • Festival Drum: +5 Strength.
  • Rudra Ring: Halves HP Costs.

Unlike other members of your back row, which FEMC can occupy thanks to her hybrid ranged weapon, she really doesn’t have any issues with health or SP, at least for her role as Linker extraordinaire. That said, she doesn’t really need a great deal outside of damage modifiers if we’re honest, so that’s why we’re recommending you go after the Sense Mirror, to fish for criticals with link attacks, and Festival Drum if you’d rather opt for a more reliable damage increase. Depending on how much you actually use hard hitting physical skills, you may want to go for the Rudra Ring, but generally speaking you’ll pick the other two in order to maximise links.


Persona 4 Protagonist

Persona 4 Protagonist, Persona Q2
  • Festival Drum: +5 Strength.
  • Rudra Ring: Halves HP Costs.
  • World Badge: Max HP +10% / Max SP +10%.

The protagonist of Persona 4 occupies a somewhat strange position in Q2. For all intents and purposes he is a physical attacker, taking a role similar to the likes of Akihiko, in the sense that he’s very sound from a statistical perspective, and much more difficult to kill than Yusuke. Unfortunately, his personal skills lean towards a damage reduction direction, rather than emphasising his damage in some way, so when you’re choosing equipment you will want to buff this as much as possible. Festival Drum is a great way to push this higher, and he can cope with the lack of buffs elsewhere thanks to those good stats.


Chie

Chie, Persona Q2
  • Rudra Ring: Halves HP Costs.
  • World Badge: Max HP +10% / Max SP +10%.
  • Sense Mirror: Critical Rate +15%.
  • Festival Drum: +5 Strength.

Chie is somewhat unique when it comes to physical attackers, because she naturally has access to ways of increasing critical strike chance. She can do this for the whole team too, in the late game, though we’d argue it’s not something that you should really get used to relying upon. This being the case, Chie benefits greatly from increased critical chance herself, with any addition making it ever more reliable in terms of damage. Other than the Sense Mirror, which itself increases critical chance, you’re best to treat her like any other physical attacker. Rudra Ring is good, though her health total in Q2 means that you don’t really need to rely upon it, so our fall back tends to be the +5 Strength achieved through the Festival Drum.

Yukiko

Yukiko, Persona Q2
  • Chakra Ring: Halves SP Costs.
  • World Badge: Max HP +10% / Max SP +10%.
  • Logos Mirror: Max HP +25%.
  • SP Adhesive 3: Recover SP Every Turn.

By now you’re probably aware of what Yukiko provides in Q2; her magic is very high, her skill selection is good but not great, and her HP is woefully small. Thankfully this makes choosing equipment for her rather easy. The Chakra Ring is an obvious choice, and the SP Adhesive 3 is certainly something we’d take if she’s operating as the primary healer, but spare a moment to consider either the World Badge or Logos Mirror; her low health can be an issue in certain fights, so you may want to boost this as much as possible at times.


Kanji

Kanji, Persona Q2
  • World Badge: Max HP +10% / Max SP +10%.
  • Soulmate Coil: Moderately increase party meter gains.
  • Super Lucky Cat: Get 10% more money from winning battles / +2 Luck.
  • Festival Drum: +5 Strength.

Much like Ryuji, more so in fact thanks to housing by far the best tanking skill in the game, Kanji does not need any help to do his job. He’ll reduce damage for the party every single round, and he’ll smile and keep going for as long as you need thanks to his incredible statistics. To get more out of him then, we tend to give him unusual accessories that provide additional benefits. For the vast majority of the game he used the Lucky Cat or Super Lucky Cat accessory for us, until the portion near the end game in which case we’d switch over to the Soulmate Coil for that extra party meter in difficult labyrinth sections.


Teddie

Teddie, Persona Q2
  • Chakra Ring: Halves SP Costs.
  • World Badge: Max HP +10% / Max SP +10%.
  • Witch Charm: +5 Magic.
  • SP Adhesive 3: Recover SP Every Turn.

Isn’t it strange that, despite doing battle in his suit, Teddie didn’t have unique pieces of equipment like Morgana and Koromaru? Yes, there’s a normal lad in there, but when he’s actually battling others he’s in the suit… Anyway, you’ll most likely be using Teddie in a supportive or magical role, so our choices of accessories reflect this. We tend to use the Chakra Ring more than any other here, but you could equally grab the Witch Charm to boost his damage, should you be reliant on him providing a lot of this in your team build.


Yosuke

Yosuke, Persona Q2
  • World Badge: Max HP +10% / Max SP +10%.
  • Festival Drum: +5 Strength.
  • Rudra Ring: Halves HP Costs.

Yosuke is a strange character, which we’ve no doubt mentioned previously. He’s weak defensively but very fast, has more health than Yusuke but has skills tailored towards linking whilst performing worse than other linkers. He’s workable in a team for sure, and his personal skill has the potential to work well, but he needs an entire team built around him to do so. That said, he’ll benefit from the usual accessories for physically tilted members, and our favourites here are the World Badge and Festival Drum, depending on the current targets.


Naoto

Naoto, Persona Q2
  • Chakra Ring: Halves SP Costs.
  • Roman Mirror: Max SP +25%.
  • Boon Potpourri: Max SP +15%.
  • Witch Charm: +5 Magic.
  • SP Adhesive 3: Recover SP Every Turn.

Whenever we check the statistics of Persona Q2 characters, we’re always shocked just how much Naoto was destroyed here as a result of his immense performance in the original. HIs Magic stat is one of the lowest for any mage type, he’s tied for the lowest Endurance in the entire game and he has an SP total that is closer to a physical attacker or linker than an actual back row magic user. To make up for this he is quick and lucky, and has very, very high HP. In this regard the best option for accessories is to boost his SP or magic, with the priority on the former, lest he run out far too quickly on any labyrinth dive.

Persona 3 Protagonist

Persona 3 Protagonist, Persona Q2
  • Chakra Ring: Halves SP Costs.
  • Witch Charm: +5 Magic.
  • Roman Mirror: Max SP +25%.
  • Boon Potpourri: Max SP +15%.
  • SP Adhesive 3: Recover SP Every Turn.

Statistically speaking the P3 protagonist isn’t a world beater, but this is a deliberate attempt by the developers to hold him back. This is a requirement because his personal skill is very powerful, since it significantly increases the damage of Fire, Ice, Wind, Elec, Psy and Nuke damage spells. This being the case, and that he’s constantly going to be slinging these spells in every round, you’ll want to boost his SP as much as possible. He’s a great choice for the Roman Mirror, Witch Charm or Boon Potpourri for difficult boss or FOE battles, or the Chakra Ring/SP Adhesive 3 on longer dungeon runs.


Yukari

Yukari, Persona Q2
  • Chakra Ring: Halves SP Costs.
  • SP Adhesive 3: Recover SP Every Turn.
  • Boon Potpourri: Max SP +15%.

Being by far the best healer in the game, Yukari doesn’t need a great deal of help. Her SP pool is high and her statistics, combined with the epic Healing Finger & Healing Hand skills, mean that her only real worry is ensuring the SP never runs out. Over the course of a dungeon run, be it exploration or just a farming run, we’d always opt for the SP Adhesive, however for tough single targets we might consider the Chakra Ring, since she may also be required to sling expensive spells in one battle, which the Adhesive may not be able to keep up with.


Junpei

Junpei, Persona Q2
  • Rudra Ring: Halves HP Costs.
  • World Badge: Max HP +10% / Max SP +10%.
  • Festival Drum: +5 Strength.

We’ve noted previously that Junpei operates in a very similar way to Chie, but is less reliant on linking attacks. Instead Junpei opts for pure physical power, which for us elevates the Rudra Ring and Festival Drum for his equipment. World Badge is there to act as a generic stat increase, should you for some reason struggle to keep him alive, but your main goal will just be to increase his damage output with single skills as much as possible.


Aigis

Aigis, Persona Q2
  • World Badge: Max HP +10% / Max SP +10%.
  • Soulmate Coil: Moderately increase party meter gains.
  • Super Lucky Cat: Get 10% more money from winning battles / +2 Luck.
  • Festival Drum: +5 Strength.

Much like our other ‘hyper-tanks’ on this list, like Ryuji and Kanji, Aigis doesn’t need a great deal of assistance in her role. She’ll be able to absorb damage just fine with her kit, so you should take advantage of this and get creative with her accessories. Our only real complaint would be that her HP total isn’t quite up there with the top two tanks, Kanji and Shinjiro, so you can opt for the World Badge if you wish, to make sure she keeps up with them. We’d argue she had her time in the sun in the original, but she’s still a perfectly viable unit here too. If you want to get really ‘meta’ with the game, try making a back row tank with her – it does actually work.


Mitsuru

Mitsuru, Persona Q2
  • Chakra Ring: Halves SP Costs.
  • Roman Mirror: Max SP +25%.
  • Boon Potpourri: Max SP +15%.
  • SP Adhesive 3: Recover SP Every Turn.

Much like the Persona 3 protagonist, Mitsuru’s personal skill ensures that she’ll always do high amounts of damage, thanks to attacks that target weaknesses doing significantly more than usual. That said, she’ll also be spamming powerful magical skills in almost every single round, so you’ll mainly be looking for ways to extend her SP as much as possible. The same rules apply here as usual; Chakra Ring works great for single battles along with the other flat SP boosts, but grab yourself an SP Adhesive 3 for those longer dungeon runs.

Koromaru

Koromaru, Persona Q2
  • Rudra Ring: Halves HP Costs.
  • Sense Mirror: Critical Rate +15%.
  • Festival Drum: +5 Strength.

We’ve noted previously that Koromaru is a linker, which means that he relies upon having most of a team built around dealing extensive ‘link’ damage. Even then, there are much better options in Q2 to complete this task, like the female P3 protagonist. In fact, she’s just plain better than poor Koro in almost every way, but if you want the eager lad in the team then you’re best looking for ways to increase his damage or critical strike, through the Festival Drum or Sense Mirror.


Akihiko

Akihiko, Persona Q2
  • Rudra Ring: Halves HP Costs.
  • Sense Mirror: Critical Rate +15%.
  • Festival Drum: +5 Strength.

He may have the very same choices as Koromaru above, but Akihiko operates slightly differently, in that he simply wants to slam out as many powerful physical skills as possible. He also doesn’t really need any help from an SP or HP regard, so you’re free to just boost that damage as much as you can. Our favourite is the Sense Mirror, because his Luck is already quite high for a front liner, but the Festival Drum will do the job just fine too.


Shinjiro

Shinjiro, Persona Q2
  • World Badge: Max HP +10% / Max SP +10%.
  • Soulmate Coil: Moderately increase party meter gains.
  • Super Lucky Cat: Get 10% more money from winning battles / +2 Luck.

Poor Shinjiro could have had all of the limelight were it not for one skill owned by Kanji. Technically speaking Shinjiro is a slightly better tanking unit than him, but he doesn’t have access to the ‘Machismo’ skills, which are unique to Kanji. The difference is quite significant, thanks to the power of said skill, but it’s not enough to cause party wipes should you choose the burgundy lad instead. Accessory choices are the same here; put something useful on him that you otherwise would not use, because he has no real need for assistance when it comes to tanking.


Ken

Ken, Persona Q2
  • World Badge: Max HP +10% / Max SP +10%.
  • Rudra Ring: Halves HP Costs.
  • Sense Mirror: Critical Rate +15%.
  • Festival Drum: +5 Strength.

Is Ken a linking unit? His personal skill would indicate as such, but he also comes with healing skills and Bless spells. Statistically speaking, he has the highest stat total in the game, and the highest singular Luck stat of any character, so he’s certainly capable of taking on the role, but his skills don’t quite stack up, meaning he’ll need significant skill card work to make him whole. Regardless, said personal skill will tilt him in a physical direction, so going for reductions in HP costs or increased physical damage will stand you in the best stead.
