Updated on September 5, 2023 by Gabrielle Castania: It’s been a little while since we double-checked our recommendations for the best accessories in Persona 5 Royal, so we’ve come back to this list to bring it up to our current formatting standards, swap out some photos, add more hyperlinks, and overall make sure we still stand by our picks for the best accessories in P5R.
11 Magic Rosary
President Tanaka is a Persona mainstay, and fans were delighted to see the old greaseball pop up on Tanaka’s Shady Commodities in P5R, accessible from the laptop in Joker’s room. He’s got a great selection of items, if you don’t worry about how he got them.
Among them is the Magic Rosary, which can be purchased for ¥50,000 and increases evasion against magic attacks. It helps enemies with low evasion and can be boosted with evasion-boosting moves as well.
10 Ring of Vanity
This accessory is a Persona 5 Royal exclusive, as it is created by finding all three Will Seeds within Madarame’s Palace. This accessory is definitely worth going through the trouble of finding them, as it allows the wearer to ignore their inherent elemental weakness entirely.
Not only this but upgrading the Crystal of Vanity to the Ring of Vanity with Jose’s help will add a defensive skill that allows the user to fully nullify any oncoming non-Almighty attack once. This adds a lot more strategy to your team composition and should definitely not be overlooked during your exploration of the second Palace.
9 Vajra Belt
The Vajra Belt is a useful accessory if you’re going for a more well-rounded party with focused support for the team. The belt automatically casts Rakukaja, which increases a random ally’s defense for three turns. It requires no SP when cast from the Belt, granting you increased defense and leaving room for using other moves.
It can lose its usefulness over time, but as an early-game accessory, the Vajra Belt can be quite useful when dungeon-crawling to protect your teammates without using a move.
8 Saintly Devotion Charm
Being able to turn a ton of different skills into accessories through the Electric Chair opens up a world of possibilities for items. Loads of Personas can be itemized and turned into different accessories, but Maria gives one of the very best.
Maria becomes available at Level 93 after maxing the Faith Confidant, exclusive to the Third Semester, and itemizing her gives the Saintly Devotion Charm when created with the Fusion Alarm active. While it’s tough to get, it’s worth the effort.
Regent is the perfect for physical attack-based party members, increasing the wearer’s strength by three points and increasing their crit hit rate.
This turns the wearer into a heavy hitter, which is always useful during fights when you’re relying on their brute strength. You can get this accessory by itemizing the Treasure Demon you find early in the game with the same name.
6 Hope Diamond
The Hope Diamond boosts all stats by three points when worn, which is a decent boost and can certainly sway a battle in your favor. Additionally, it grants Regeneration 3, which heals a portion of the user’s health on every turn. Hunt down the Hope Diamond and itemize it to get this Persona 5 accessory.
It’s great for drawn-out battles if you equip a more melee-based party member, as it makes them stronger and also keeps them alive through consistent healing.
5 SP Adhesive 3
If you’re a magic-heavy player, the SP Adhesive 3 is the perfect accessory – it restores a decent amount of SP to its wearer every turn. You can get this accessory from Takemi’s Medical Clinic after you’ve done some trials and reached Rank Five of Takemi’s Confidant.
The SP Adhesive 3 is one of the most useful accessories you can get on your first playthrough of the game, as it saves you a lot of time on grinding SP restoring items. These can be scarce, so source some SP yourself when possible!
4 Omnipotent Orb
This is a rather tricky accessory to place in a ranked list, as it sounds extremely overpowered on paper. The Omnipotent Orb is an accessory you get in New Game+ after you manage to beat Caroline and Justine and makes the user immune to all types of damage except Almighty.
It doesn’t have the most effect on boss fights, though, but if you know how and when to use it, it can come in handy throughout the game, even if it does seem a little overpowered.
3 Ring of Envy
This is another Royal exclusive, created from Place Will Seeds from Sae Niijima’s Casino. Finding all the Will Seeds in this Palace will give you the Crystal of Envy, which then allows you to create the Ring of Envy with help from Jose.
The Crystal of Envy gives the holder Masukukaja, and the added Auto-Concentrate from the Ring of Envy is the real deal-breaker. Concentrate is one of the best skills in the game, but having it automatically activate at the start of battle makes it that much better.
2 Divine Pillar
If your playstyle revolves around tank builds that leave your characters shrugging off enemy attacks, then Divine Pillar is the perfect accessory. What it does is halves all incoming damage at the cost of losing evasion. Even though evading damage is good, it is not guaranteed, so taking only half the damage every time is the next best thing.
The Divine Pillar is a possible item drop given by the Reaper in Mementos. What makes this accessory even more useful is pairing it with the Firm Stance move, which lowers all incoming damage to a mere 25 percent, making this one of the best accessories in Persona 5 Royal.
1 Crystal Skull
The best accessory in Persona 5 by far is the Crystal Skull, and with good reason – not only does it increase all the stats by five points, but it also grants a high chance of evading magic.
Getting a couple of these to give them to multiple party members makes them almost unstoppable, as the accessory boosts their combat abilities as well as survivability by so much. The only way to get it is by finding the Treasure Demon of the same name in the Sheriruth path of Mementos.
