Persona 5 Royal: Tae Takemi Confidant Guide

If you are thinking of starting Tae Takemi’s Confidant, you’ve landed on the perfect page. We’ll tell you how to initiate the Tae Takemi Confidant, the abilities she brings to the team, and how you can hit Rank 10.

But first, some context.

tae takemi persona 5

Tae Takemi runs a clinic in Yongen-Jaya, but she doesn’t have the best of reputations. So, naturally, the Takemi Medical Clinic becomes the pit stop of Phantom Thieves. In return, Takemi turns the protagonist into her personal lab rat.

The Takemi Confidant begins at the Takemi Medical Clinic, but not on your first visit. Here’s how everything pans out.

When Does Takemi Confidant Begin?

Players can initiate Takemi’s Confidant by visiting her clinic. Your first visit will be through story progression on the 18th of April. But that’s just to get some painkillers and get moving.

But, a second visit to the clinic will initiate her Confidant. All you have to do is ask about the rumored medicine.

As for when to visit the clinic, here’s a table showing her availability in Persona 5 Royal.

And while you’re at it, here’s how to date Tae Takemi. Choose the Lovers choices, and you can date the “bad doctor.”

Takemi: Why don’t you tell me the truth about why you kept coming to me?

Best Response: I wanted to see you. (Lovers) / It was for my exams. (Friends)

Now, if you choose Lovers, here are the best responses to really get things going. Choosing different options in the below chats will result in the sudden death of your romance.

Takemi: …Don’t tell me you’re in love with me or something.

Best Response: +2. I love you.

Takemi: Or… I can give you a “special examination” if you’d like.

Best Response: +3. It isn’t a joke.

Takemi: Turns out my little guinea pig caught an illness that’s even more annoying and persistent than Crawford-Ende’s.

Best Response: +2. So did you.

For the friendship arc, there’s only one rewarding chat.

Takemi: You really are the best guinea pig I could’ve hoped for.

Best Response: +2. I’m glad we saw it through.
