~ One of Makoto's post-All-Out Attack quotes.

Makoto Niijima, also known as Queen, is one of the main characters and party members in the video games Persona 5 and Persona 5: Royal.

She is a third-year student at Shujin Academy, the Student Council President and the younger sister of Sae Niijima.

Initially appearing as an enemy to the Phantom Thieves of Hearts, Makoto joins them to take down the mafia boss Junya Kaneshiro, and ultimately stays with them as the group's strategist. Her initial Persona is Johanna and her Ultimate Persona is Anat.

She is voiced by Rina Satō in the Japanese version of the anime, and by Cherami Leigh in the English version of the anime.


Makoto's role in Persona 5 begins with her being tasked to uncover clues about the Phantom Thieves, a group of people going into a place called the Metaverse and changing the hearts of ne'er do wells, after being pushed into it with the threat of not getting a recommendation for university. She eventually starts following Joker, Ryuji Sakamoto, Ann Takamaki, and Yusuke Kitagawa, eventually discovering their true identities as the Phantom Thieves due to Ann and Ryuji's failure to discuss their activities subtly. She keeps their identity secret, on the condition that they are able to change the heart of an unidentified mafia boss. She secretly holds the Phantom Thieves in high regard, much to the chagrin of her sister Sae Niijima, who is a prosecutor investigating the Phantom Thieves. After being called a burden by her sister and the Phantom Thieves, she aims to use herself as bait to discover the identity of the mafia boss, which ends up getting her and the others blackmailed for 3 million yen, with the risk of Makoto being forced into prostitution if they cannot pay up. Forgiving her for her mistake and realizing she has become one of the mafia boss' "customers", the Phantom Thieves allow her to come with them to the Metaverse to the mafia boss' Palace, a manifestation of a person's heart, where she becomes so angered and disgusted by his misogyny and callous greed that she awakens to her Persona, Johanna, and joins the Phantom Thieves. After they defeat him and change his heart, she gets a call saying that the blackmail is over. She reports to the principal that she found no evidence that the Phantom Thieves are students, and expresses disinterest in a recommendation letter.

She comes to bond with the Phantom Thieves, including Ann, who previously disliked her and wrongfully accused her of overlooking an abusive teacher. She aides the Phantom Thieves with her tactical skill and by planting spyware in her sister's laptop to get investigation information. She suggests reaching out to a detective named Goro Akechi to get information, but discovers that he knows the identities of the Phantom Thieves and blackmails them into stealing her sister's heart. Makoto reveals that she knew of her sister having a palace, but wanted to change her heart through other means. Upon exploring her palace, Makoto discovers that her sister thinks of trials as games to be won by any means, and has a breakdown while fighting her sister's shadow. After defeating her, Makoto is able to convince Sae to change her ways. Makoto and the others later discover the true nature of the Metaverse and Akechi's true identity as the Black Mask, and after some tribulations are able to defeat its master.
