Grab
13,300 Mementos (Haru Okumura background, hazards off) •Sudden Final Smash
•Item: Daybreak Parts
•The enemy will suddenly have a Final Smash when the enemy's at high damage
•Reinforcements will appear during the battle
Wake Up, Get Up, Get Out There
  • The puppet fighters representing the Phantom Thieves appear in the order that they are recruited in the original game. Their leader Joker appears at the end, using All-Out Attack alongside his allies. The only exceptions are Haru Okumura (who appears in the background instead), Futaba Sakura (who serves as a guide rather than participating in combat), and Goro Akechi.
  • Aside from the Sudden Final Smash condition that references their All-Out Attack, the appearance of Daybreak references the name of the game's OVA adaption. It could also be a reference to Sinful Shell, a skill which is used to defeat the final boss Yaldabaoth at the very end of the game.

•Start with 300% damage
•You are healed significantly after a little while
Aria of the Soul
  • The stage and music represent the Velvet Room, of which Igor is the proprietor.
  • While the Robin puppet fighter represents Igor, the three Ridleys likely represent the residents of the Velvet Room that assist him; the only game in the series that features three assistants is Persona 2.
  • The Assist Trophy items represent how meeting Igor results in the protagonists awakening and summoning their Personas. This "awakening" aspect is also represented through the player starting with 300% damage and healing over time.

P5 Caroline and Justine.png
Caroline & Justine Ice Climbers IceClimbersHeadBlueSSBU.png
Shield
9,700 Kalos Pokémon League (hazards off) •Sudden Damage •You take serious damage after a little while
•Timed battle
Aria of the Soul
  • The stage and music represent the Velvet Room, of which Caroline and Justine are residents.
  • The timed nature and sudden damage condition reference the bonus boss fight against Caroline and Justine within Persona 5, which requires the Phantom Thieves to deal a certain amount of damage every six turns or else be wiped out by an All-Out Attack.

Morgana Pikachu PikachuHeadLibreSSBU.png

Last Surprise
  • Morgana's puppet fighter is Pikachu in its Pikachu Libre costume, another small masked creature. Both Morgana and Pikachu share Ikue Ōtani as their Japanese voice actress.

1,310
Ryuji Persona 5.png

Shield
4,800 Luigi's Mansion (Battlefield form) •N/A •Defeat the main fighter to win
•The enemy starts the battle with a Home-Run Bat
Last Surprise
  • Captain Falcon's attire represents the outfit worn by Ryuji as the Phantom Thief, Skull. The Home-Run Bat references how Ryuji uses bludgeoning weapons.
  • Mii Gunner represents Ryuji's Persona, Captain Kidd.
  • The stage resembles the exterior of Suguru Kamoshida's Palace, where Joker and Ryuji first awaken their Personas.
1,311
Ann Persona 5.png
Ann Takamaki Zero Suit Samus ZeroSuitSamusHeadRedSSBU.png
Peach PeachHeadRedSSBU.png
Attack
4,500 Castle Siege (Throne Room) •Item: Fire Flower •Defeat the main fighter to win Last Surprise
  • Zero Suit Samus' skintight outfit resembles the outfit worn by Ann as the Phantom Thief, Panther.
  • The stage resembles the interior of Kamoshida's palace, which is where Ann is recruited.
  • Peach represents Ann's Persona, Carmen. The Fire Flower items represent Carmen's fire powers.
1,312
Yusuke Persona 5.png
Yusuke Kitagawa Chrom ChromHeadBlackSSBU.png
King Dedede KingDededeHeadCyanSSBU.png
Grab
2,500 Suzaku Castle (Battlefield form) •Assist Trophy Enemies (Vince) •Defeat the main fighter to win
•Hostile assist trophies will appear after a little while
Last Surprise
  • Like Chrom, Yusuke is a blue-haired swordfighter, and both share Matthew Mercer and Tomokazu Sugita as their English and Japanese voice actors respectively.
  • King Dedede represents Yusuke's Persona, Goemon, who is also known for using powerful physical attacks.
  • The Vince Assist Trophy references how Yusuke is an artist who designs the Phantom Thieves' logo.
  • The stage references how Yusuke's teacher, Ichiryusai Madarame, utilizes traditional Japanese imagery in his design and palace.
1,313
Makoto Persona 5.png
Makoto Niijima Sheik SheikHeadBlackSSBU.png
Wario WarioHeadGreenSSBU.png
Attack
3,000 Dracula's Castle (Ω form) •N/A •Defeat the main fighter to win
•The enemy is invisible
Last Surprise
  • Sheik's black costume resembles Makoto's outfit as the Phantom Thief, Queen.
  • An invisible Wario appears, preferring to use his Wario Bike. This references Makoto's Persona, Johanna, which takes the form of an animate motorcycle.
  • The stage choice resembles Kaneshiro's Palace, where Makoto joins the Phantom Thieves. It could also be a reference to how Makoto is scared of ghosts.
1,314
Futaba Persona 5.png
Futaba Sakura Inkling InklingHeadSSBU.png
Shield
2,900 Mushroomy Kingdom (Battlefield form) •Item Tidal Wave (Boss Galaga)
•Assist Trophy Enemies (Wily Capsule)
•Timed battle
•Hostile assist trophies will appear
•Items will be pulled toward the enemy
Beneath the Mask
  • Futaba's puppet fighter is the default female Inkling; a puppet fighter using its default costume within a spirit battle is rare, and may be due to their similar appearances.
  • Wily Capsule resembles Futaba's Persona, Necronomicon, which takes the form of a UFO with a human pilot (being Dr. Wily and Futaba respectively). This is also referenced through the Boss Galaga enemies, which may also represent Futaba's fondness for video games.
  • The stage choice is a reference to the Egyptian styling of Futaba's palace.
  • While most of the Phantom Thieves have Last Surprise—the standard battle theme—as the music for their spirit battles, Futaba's has Beneath the Mask—the overworld theme—which reflects that she never directly participates in battle.
1,315
Haru Persona 5.png
Haru Okumura Villager VillagerHeadPinkSSBU.png
Daisy DaisyHeadPurpleSSBU.png
Attack
2,300 Tomodachi Life (Ω form) •Item Tidal Wave •Defeat the main fighter to win
•Certain items will appear in large numbers after a little while
Last Surprise
  • Haru is a gardener, so salads appear in the Item Tidal Wave and her Villager puppet fighter often plants trees. The stage choice also references this, as her garden is on the rooftop of the Shujin Academy.
  • Daisy represents Haru's Persona, Milady. She starts with a Super Scope, since Milady uses gun-based skills.
1,316
P5 Goro Akechi.png
Goro Akechi Marth MarthHeadWhiteSSBU.png
Pit PitHeadBlueSSBU.png
Neutral
3,800 Fourside (Battlefield form) •Hazard: Left Is Right, Right Is Left •Defeat the main fighter to win
•Left and right controls will suddenly reverse
Rivers In the Desert
  • Marth's white costume represents Akechi's outfit as the Phantom Thief, Crow.
  • Pit represents Akechi's Persona, Robin Hood, who is also an archer with a mostly white color scheme.
  • The stage choice references Sae Niijima's palace, a large casino which Akechi works with the Phantom Thieves to infiltrate.
  • The reversal of controls alludes to how Akechi can inflict psychotic episodes in people.
  • Much like Futaba, Akechi doesn't use Last Surprise as his battle theme. Instead his battle has Rivers in the Desert, which is a reference to his father Masayoshi Shido, who uses Rivers in the Desert as his battle theme.

Trivia[edit]

  • Both of 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 possessed 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.
