[Video] The Confidants of Persona 5 – #7 Shinya Oda
The protagonists of Persona 3 and 4 were able to use the bonds formed with primary and secondary characters to boost the powers of their Persona’s during their creation – through a system known as “Social Links”. In Persona 5, this system has been replaced by characters known as “Confidants” – who will grant the protagonist special skill bonuses, useful services and more, the more he gets to know them. While many social links in Persona games are acquired by those around the same age or older than the protagonist, there are a few characters who are younger - and Shinya Oda is one such example. But don't let his size fool you, as this pint-sized gaming prodigy has the skills to teach the protagonist more than a thing or two about the use of guns. Examples of skills which can be learned from Oda include the ambush skill "Bullet Hall" which can lead to an all-out attack, and the ability to fire a "Warning Shot" when negotiating with demons.
