How to Find the Twins in Persona 5 NG+

Caroline and Justine are an optional boss that only appear in new game plus, so don't bother trying to prepare for them before your second playthrough.

Once you're in NG+, begin your struggle by talking to Caroline outside the Velvet Room of Mementos' entrance. Mementos must be unlocked in order to do this. This is where the fight begins, so don't come unprepared. 

While technically you are able to engage in the fight as soon as Mementos are unlocked, it is advised that you are sufficiently leveled and have evolved Personas beforehand. You have plenty of time to do this, as the last possible day to fight Caroline and Justine is December 22nd.

How to Beat the Twins in Persona 5

The twins have no weaknesses or resistances, so they can prove troublesome. 

Caroline's attacks tend to cause damage based on:

  • Phys
  • Fire
  • Elec
  • Psy
  • Bless

Justine's attacks tend to cause damage based on:

  • Gun
  • Ice
  • Wind
  • Nuke
  • Curse

The best strategy in defeating the twins is to constantly alternate between attacking them both so they die in the same turn. This is because if only one twin dies at the end of your turn, the remaining twin will revive the other at 50%HP and start the process again. It is imperative that you plan accordingly so that they both die in the same turn.

If you are unable to perform enough damage after every six turns (the number can change depending on the fight's length) -- or your characters are all knocked down -- Caroline and Justine will do an All-Out-Attack which immediately ends in a defeatThis will not cause a game over, though. Instead, a cutscene will play out and a chance to retry will pop up.


Once the ordeal is over and you have endured the four-phase fight, you will be awarded with the gold "Beyond Rehabilitation" trophy -- along with sweet satisfaction.

That completes our guide to finding and defeating Caroline and Justine. In need of some extra help in other parts of Persona 5? Check out these guides below:
