7 Powerful Persona 5 Emperor Arcana In The Game


The emperor is always viewed as a powerful and majestic individual who rules above everyone. This is even evident in tarot cards where the Emperor or Major Arcana symbolizes being at the top of the secular hierarchy and the ultimate male ego.

This is also what you can expect from the Persona 5 game. The Persona 5 Emperor persona is usually represented by kings, emperors, deities, or important male figures. They’re also characters that usually excel in Physical and Electric-based attacks (some use Ice-based attacks).

Persona 5 features many different emperor arcana in the game. But not all of them are created equal. Though they’re all powerful, they do not equal. There is Persona 5, Emperor Arcanas, who is just more powerful than the others. In this article, we’ll list who are the most powerful ones and why.

But what makes him the most powerful emperor in arcana is that he has no weaknesses and a fast healing ability. This makes him hard to kill while also being able to deliver high electric damage to enemies.

He can also buff the party’s defense, which is helpful in many battle situations. Acquiring him is not easy. To summon him, you’ll need to fuse Uriel and Surt. But it is hard to get him because you must max out your social link with Yusuke Kitagawa, Emperor Arcana’s confidant.

2. Baal

The second most powerful Persona 5 Emperor persona is Baal, the god of fertility. Baal is an emperor but doesn’t use electric or ice-based attacks. Instead, he uses wind and is one of the most powerful wind users in the game.

He can even nullify one instant death attack. Odin deals more damage and has a higher level which is why he’s above Baal. But this emperor can provide more utility and support during battle. His fusion requires Yamata-no-Orochi and Loa.

3. Oberon

The first Persona 5 Emperor who isn’t a deity on this list is Oberon. Though he might still fit that description since he is called the King of Fairies and is famous as one of the characters in Midnight Summer’s Dream by Shakespeare.

Oberon can even revive one ally at full HP when needed. You must offer Black Rider and Kali as summon materials to acquire him.

He also has an Auto-Mataru to boost the party’s attack at the beginning of the battle and can impart immunity to despair. You will need Seth and Ganesha as fusion recipes to summon him.

Last but certainly not least is Toth, the Egyptian God of Wisdom. He is a God who gives value to knowledge, possessing a large library that contains all of Egypt during his time.
