Akira was a high school student who one day found a drunk man harassing a woman. He initially didn't want to get involved, but eventually stepped in. Sadly, he accidentally wounded the man in the process, which then led to his arrest, and sentenced to probation. As a result, he was expelled from his school and forced to move to Shibuya.

"A being based off the main character of Maurice Leblanc's Novels, Arsene Lupin. He appears everywhere and is a master of disguise. He is known to help law-abiding citizens." —Persona 5 compendium

  • Akira's initial persona is resist to curse attacks but weak to bless and ice
  • based off of Maurice Leblanc's Novels about Arsene Lupin the Gentleman Thief and Master of Disguise
  • Due to the prologue, Arsene has two more skills: Brave Blade and Eigaon


  • Is roughly the size of a large skyscraper
  • Carries a gun that fires Sinful Shells: Bullets forged from the Seven Deadly Sins.
  • Not only negated Yaldaboath's Rays of Control, but shot a massive hole through the God of Control's metallic/crystalline headpiece.


  • Ventured into the 'Seven Deadly Sins' themed cognitive worlds or 'Palaces' of certain individuals and, in turn, vanquishing the 'Shadows' of said individuals, ranging from his own teammates to unpleasant people in the real world.
  • Destroyed countless horrifying monsters in those 'Palaces'.
  • If the player chooses to go that route in-game, Akira can be a 'Harem King' which is essentially the Persona equivalent of being classified pimp, although it doesn't end well for him.
  • Uncovered a government conspiracy going back at least 18 months before his arrival that included multiple corrupt officials, including the director of Japan's Special Investigations Unit and Japan's Minister of State for Special Missions, who by chance happened to be the very drunk who got Akira arrested and put on probation in the first place.
  • Intelligence allowed him to know of a traitorous assassination plot concocted by Goro Akechi, a detective, teammate and the Confidant of the Justice Arcana before the traitor himself even knew about Akira knowing about it.
  • Stole and purified many Hearts, which in turn would affect the individuals that the Hearts belonged to in the real world, with the more unpleasant and evil of his targets confessing their sins in front of large crowds or televised audiences.
  • Durability, strength, and agility far exceeds that of a normal Human, though this can due to his various Personas' abilities.
  • Survived an attack capable of destroying an entire galaxy from one of Kunikazu Mammon Okumura's minions.
  • Despite being an amnesiac, Akira managed to recall the very voice of the same man that got him jailed.
  • Destroyed Yaldaboath, a malicious God who can erase one's existence just by thinking about it, with one attack from his ultimate Persona, the Rebel King of Hell, Satanael.


  • Despite his Personas' attributes buffs, Akira is still very much a Human and can still die by ordinary means.
  • Persona abilities require SP, which can be drained quickly if Akira is not careful, though he can regain SP over time.
  • Damage dealt to Persona(s) translates over to their users, and Akira is no exception. Sufficient damage can even cause Persona Break; an event in which a Persona is temporarily decommissioned out of the fight. A Person Break will also cause the user to become stunned.
