Trivia[edit]

  • Both Morgana and Yusuke Kitagawa's spirit battles relate to how they share the same voice actor as their fighter, as Morgana shares his Japanese voice actress with Pikachu (which itself is actually referenced in Persona 5), and Yusuke shares both his Japanese and English voice actors with Chrom.
  • In the Phantom Thieves of Hearts battle, Haru Okumura is the only Phantom Thief who will appear in the background. As a result, the character who represents her in her spirit battle, Villager, does not appear in the spirit battle.
    • Additionally, Futaba Sakura is the only Phantom Thief in the Phantom Thieves of Hearts spirit battle to not appear in any capacity outside of Joker's All-Out Attack Final Smash, as she cannot appear in the background for Mementos nor does the character who represents her in her spirit battle, Inkling, appear in the spirit battle.
    • Likewise, Goro Akechi is the only Phantom Thief to not appear in any capacity outside of his spirit battle, as he does not appear in the background of Mementos or appear during Joker's All-Out Attack Final Smash, and the Marth that represents him is not present during the Phantom Thieves of Hearts spirit battle, reflecting his absence from said spirit's artwork.
  • The Phantom Thieves of Hearts battle is the first spirit battle in the game to have a DLC fighter as the Puppet Fighter (Joker).
  • In all versions of Ultimate, Ryuji Sakamoto's spirit does not have a Rising Sun Flag symbol on his shoe, matching a similar censoring done in the Chinese and Korean versions of Persona 5 due to the symbol being considered offensive in Asia.
  • Akechi, Igor, Caroline & Justine, and Sophia are the only Spirits who do not make a physical appearance in Ultimate.
    • Additionally, Akechi and Sophia are the only Phantom Thieves whose Phantom Thief outfits do not make an appearance as a Spirit, due to Persona 5 not having artwork of Akechi in his Crow outfit.
  • Persona is the second DLC universe to get another spirit post-launch of its respective fighter (Sophia), the first being Dragon Quest with the Tockles spirit.
    • Coincidentally, both could be obtained by having save data of a specific game on Nintendo Switch (Persona 5 Strikers and Dragon Quest XI S: Echoes of an Elusive Age - Definitive Edition).
    • Unlike the Tockles, however, Sophia was not retroactively added to the Persona spirit board. This makes her spirit the only Persona spirit that can be battled without the Challenger Pack 1 DLC.
  • The Phantom Thieves of Hearts spirit and both of Joker's fighter spirits are the second and third spirits to reuse artwork from another spirit, being Morgana and Joker in the Phantom Thieves of Hearts Spirit, and Arsène in both of Joker's fighter spirits.
