Just now, I accidentally dashed to a hiding spot directly next to an enemy who walked right by me twice without noticing me and I was able to ambush it. Did I just get lucky or is it not possible for enemies to detect you while hiding?


Based on my experiences so far and a tip in this article, being "behind" cover makes you effectively invisible in that enemies cannot spot you while you are doing so (even if they really should be able to...).

You’re completely hidden when in cover.

Persona 5 may look like a traditional stealth game at first, but it isn’t. As long as you’re in cover, you cannot ever be seen by an enemy. Even if it walks past you and comes back up from behind. If you’re in cover, you’re good. So stay in cover.

  • Is this still true for the alternate palace enemy model you see in the third palace that they mention is harder to hide from? Trying to ask about that without spoiling anything. – Ramirez Apr 12 '17 at 17:45
  • @Ramirez if you're referring to the... err... "ogdays," let's call them... then yes, the mechanic is the same. I believe those run faster and can see you from much further, though, which would make it harder for you to hide, technically. – Vemonus Apr 12 '17 at 17:47
  • This is good information to know, will help me a lot from those red burning enemies that love to wreck me. – Ramirez Apr 12 '17 at 17:48
