Persona 5 Unmasked - A Work In Progress for Persona 5.

A comprehensive rebalancing of Persona 5

This project is a comprehensive, in-depth rebalancing of several different aspects of Persona 5. Including party skill progression overhauls, skill and boss rebalancing, as well as AI tweaking. All with the goal of remaining faithful to the original game, but providing a more refined, balanced, and challenging experience in the process.

Changelist Spreadsheet

This is a work-in-progress so expect frequent updates.

1. If you want to use this with a pre-existing save:

Unfortunately due to the way that the game reads party member skills, you are going to end up missing the new skills that have been added to the party now. As of right now, the only real solution for this is to use the confessional in-game to fix the party member skills. I am hoping to find a more comprehensive solution outside in the future. If you plan on starting a brand new file or doing NG+, then you shouldn't have to worry about this.

2. Known Problems/Things I intend to work on soon


  • A few of the revamped mini-bosses currently do not have the ability to restart the fight if you die to them. This was true in the base game as well, but I am trying to fix this soon since I have made these fights slightly more volatile.
  • Some of the edited boss fights are going to be missing quite a few voicelines when they use skills. This is due to Atlus hardcoding pretty much everything to do with boss voicelines. There's not really anything I can do about this because of that. One of the bosses is fixed by using the P5EX addon, but that doesn't work for all of them.


Please leave a comment or ask in the Discord server if you run into a bug, compatibility issue, or anything else that doesn't seem right.
  • Could you please tell me a proper compatibility order for the mods I want to use alongside unmasked?
    The mods in question are: P5EX, Unmasked, Kasumi over Haru and Big Personas Backport.

    So now that P5R was announced for PC will you try to make this mod Royal compatible or would that be impossible/very hard to do?

  • Do you plan on updating enemy encounters and movesets? I think this mod would be really interesting with stuff like that! I loved how Reimagined was made to make encounters more varied, tho I disliked how much that game changed things for the sake of changing things (lots of random moves on random demons, etc) slightly updated movesets on demons and changed up encounters would be so cool!

    If it's a lot of work I understand tho, just curious on your thoughts : )
