How to Find (& Unlock) Mara in Persona 5 Strikers

Mara, the Throbbing King of Desire, is one of the more powerful Personas in Persona 5 Strikers. This guide will show players how to find and unlock it in the game. Persona 5 Strikers continues the story left behind by the original Persona 5. As Joker and Morgana return back to Tokyo for a reunion vacation with the other Phantom Thieves, they soon discover that many of its residents are being attacked by Shadows. To look into this situation, the team is reformed and a new adventure begins. This time around, the gameplay is more Dynasty Warriors focused with fast-paced action and flashiness. This guide will show players how they can find and unlock Mara in Persona 5 Strikers.

Before players can add Mara to their collection, they first will need to defeat it. Mara, the Throbbing King of Desire can be encountered upon accepting the “Writhing Nightmare Rising” request. This will send the player back to the Okinawa Jail to face it again. Fortunately, this is one of the Powerful Shadow Requests that can be completed in the base game. Only a small handful are unlocked in the post-game. Mara itself is the best Fire Persona in the game. This guide will show players how to unlock it.

As mentioned, players will need to complete the “Writhing Nightmare Request” and once this is done, players will be given the option to fuse for it. It is weak to Psy attacks to bringing along Haru is a great way in taking it down. Here is what is required to fuse for Mara.

This Persona has been the topic of many conversations when it comes to Persona designs because of its very phallic look. Overall, this is one of the best Personas in the game and will do the player a lot of good (especially if they wish to complete the post-game tasks).

Persona 5 Strikers handles a sequel story fairly well for a game that has such a drastically different gameplay style from the original. It may be a while before a new mainline title is announced because of the pattern of releases from previous entries. For now, these spin-off titles are a great way for players to receive new Persona content.

Persona 5 Strikers is available now on Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4.
