Persona 5 Guide: How to Capture the Koh-i-Noor Treasure Demon

Treasure Demons have been eluding many players in Persona 5 -- especially the Koh-i-Noor Persona. Here's how you can bag him for yourself!

Persona 5 players may be aware of the elusive "treasure demons" that exist in game. These tricky terrors are rather rare -- but when they appear, they can be downed for inclusion in your party, or simply killed for hefty amounts of money and XP.

The level 25 Priestess Koh-i-Noor Persona (a reference to the colorless diamond discovered in India) is one such entity that has had players baffled on how to capture it. But with a bit of foresight, luck, and some help from this guide, this elusive demon can be yours. 

How to Catch Koh-i-Noor in Persona 5

Finding and Preparing for Koh-i-Noor

Before you do anything, you'll want to make sure you have the Treasure Trap Infiltration Tool, as this increases your chances of discovering the likes of Koh-i-Noor. The tool can be created by using:

  • Silk Yarn (2)
  • Plant Balm (3)
  • Cork Bark (1)

The Persona itself appears after the level 20 Stone of Scone and before the level 30 Orlov Personas. It will most frequently appear in the fifth palace. 

Capturing Koh-i-Noor

Once the demon shows its face, you may be alarmed by the fact that it has no discernible weaknesses. Personas are usually caught through exploiting their weakness until they are available for capture -- but with Koh-i-Noor, a slightly different strategy is required.

You will need to land a critical hit on the Persona for it to be captured. A number of abilities can be combined in order to do this, so make sure to bring a Persona along who has either:

  • Lucky Punch
  • Miracle Punch
  • Apt Pupil
  • Rebellion

Fusing a Persona with these skills and a high luck-based Persona will drastically increase your critical hit chance. A lot of luck is involved with this one but if you are aptly prepared then it shouldn't be a nail-biting experience.

That wraps up our guide for finding and defeating the Koh-i-Noor Treasure Demon in Persona 5. If you need more help with the game, you can check out our wealth of other guides for all your Persona 5 needs:
