That being said, unlocking interaction with Mutatsu can be a bit difficult as there are certain perquisites that you need to meet. Don’t worry; in this guide, I will discuss everything you need to know to max out Mutatsu’s social link. So, without further ado, let’s dive into the details, shall we?

To unlock Mutatsu’s social link, you must first reach rank 4 of Yuko’s (Strength) social link. She will inform you of an unusual monk the next time you see her. You can then find Mutatsu drinking by himself in Club Escapade. To initiate a conversation, you must bring him a drink first. This will involve speaking to the barkeep and taking orders from everyone else around the club. Here is the correct order of all drinks:

  • Margarita
  • Bloody Mary
  • Screwdriver
  • Oolong tea

You will obtain a  Reserve Tag when you’ve maxed out Mutatsu’s Social Link. This will allow you to fuse the Ultimate Persona, Chi You, of the Tower Archana.

Prerequisite

To interact with Mutatsu, you must reach rank 4 on the Strength Social Link. Yuko will tell you about a monk in Club Escapade. From there, you must go to the club for your first encounter with Mutatsu. Keep in mind that your Courage rank needs to be Tough or higher.
