"Ranking up easily"

If you want to "rank up" a Persona faster than usual, there are two methods:

1)If the Persona you want to get to rank 8 (the max rank) has a healing spell, simply go to a dungeon where the enemies can't kill you, and use the healing spell over and over on you, since everytime you cast the spell you use the Persona, you'll be increasing its rank. This can also be done, with another kind of spell besides healing, but it must NOT damage the enemy, so you can keep casting it. (A good place to do this is at the abandoned factory Door 01 in Konan district, there are weak demons there)

2)The other way, is trough mutation, one of the possible awards for mutation is that the Persona's rank raises 2 levels, so you can keep ending battles with fusion spells until you get that award.

Healing spells and support spells also have the extra benefit of giving double the "points" needed for ranking up a persona.

Apollo, Artemis, Venus, Hades and Cronos

To get Apollo, Artemis, Venus and Hades:
1)During Mt. Iwato you MUST collect the 4 masks. They are all in hidden rooms (those areas may be called "hidden rooms" but they are extremely easy to find so don't worry.). The first three are in B1, the fourth one is in B2 and there is a fifth hidden room in B3, but it is empty. Make sure you grab them all before defeating the boss of the dungeon or else you missed them forever.
2)After defeating the final boss of the "Caracol" dungeon you'll get each of these personae according to which masks you got, if you grabbed them all, you'll get all four.

To get Cronos you'll need to:
1)Equip Jun with Hermes during the final boss fight in the Aquarius Shrine, you'll get the Modification Ability.
2)Go to the velvet room and upgrade Hermes to Cronos through Mutation.

Contacting Demons

When contacting demons during battle each character will have 4 possible actions individually and special ones in the form of group contacts; there are a total of 4 emotions that demons can show when contacted (how they react to the different contacts depends on their personality and your answers to their questions), these emotions are:
Yellow with "!" - Interest
Green Aura - Joyful
Blue Aura - Fear
Red Aura - Anger

After a demon shows one emotion 3 times (doesn't have to be consecutively) something will happen:
Interest 3 times → Gives you tarot cards of the demon's arcana
Joyful 3 times → Offers you to form a contract with him/her (contract can only be formed if you are at least the same level as the demon)
Fear 3 times → The demon runs away from battle
Anger 3 times → The demon will go berserk and attack you (you won't be able to try to contact him again during that battle)

If you enter a battle with a demon that you have a contract with and you make him/her "feel joyful" 3 times you'll be able to ask him/her for money, an item or information. But if you instead of making him/her feel joyful you make him/her fell Interest 3 times she/he will give you not only tarot cards of his/her arcana but also Free Tarot Cards!!!

There are also other possible results when contacting demons:

If you made a demon feel Joyful and Interested 3 times, then that demon will either give you money, heal you, or give you item.

If you made a demon feel Interested and Fear 3 times, then that demon will get a charmed status and the battle will continue.

If you made a demon feel Interested and Angry 3 times, then that demon will get a furious status and the battle will continue.

Durga

As soon as you enter Caracol you'll have to fight a boss. After defeating it and watching a scene, you'll be prompted with two choices, select the first one(So that you don't leave Yukino alone there.). Philemon will bestow a new persona upon Yukino called Durga.

Personae Mutations

Any personae in the game is able to mutate when you end a battle by using any fusion spell as the last attack. By doing so its parameters will increase, its rank will increase 2 levels, it will learn a hidden spell or it will get the Modification Ability, which will allow it to morph into another Persona (Not all personae have the Modification Ability)

So, it is a good idea to always try to end up all battles by using a fusion spell, because the mutation is random it won't occur all time, but the more you try it, the more likely it will happen. Also, keep in mind that the more compatible the Persona is with its user the more chances are for the mutation to happen. Another thing that affects how often the mutation triggers is the "luck" of the persona user, so the higher that stat is the more chances of it happening.

Rhad. Custom, Cupid Custom, Maia Custom & Volcanus Custom

To get these four custom personae you need to:
1) During the "Club Zodiac" dungeon, do NOT help Michelle when the game asks you what you want to do.
2)In the Music Hall do not attempt to help Lisa, leave her alone so that she can perform with the Muses
3) Allow Maya to save Ixquic in the Sky Museum
4) When you defeat the boss in Mt. Iwato, you'll unlock these 4 personae.

NOTE: You have to do steps 1, 2 and 3 to obtain the custom for Tatsuya; for example if you do only 1 and 3, Michelle and Maya will get their custom but not Lisa and Tatsuya.

Glitches

Prolong the effect of divination

Once you have gotten access to the Konan district (don't worry you can't miss it, just keep advancing the plot) Go to Sumaru Gypsy (It's inside the Seaside Mall), save and ask her for divination (it costs 3000 yen), these are the possible results:

Wheel of Fortune: Raises LUC
Cycle of Life: Lowers LUC
Reason: Doubles your experience earn after battle
Moon: Gains less experience after battle
Victory: Gains 10% more money after battle
Ego: Gains less money after battle
Magician: Raises Contact Success rate
Purgatory: Lowers Contact Success rate
Temperance: No Effect

Keep re-loading your save until you get the effect you wish to have on your party. The effect will last only 20 minutes, but if you save and load your game before those 20 minutes pass, the effect will last another 20 minutes and so on.
