Keep reading to learn how you can complete every single side quest in Persona 4 Golden.

Persona 4 Golden doesn’t shy away from offering an abundance of content. May it be a captivating story or well-refined quality-of-life features, Persona 4 Golden sure offers it all. And the long list of side quests only adds to the extensive range of activities you can do in the game. That’s right, Persona 4 Golden has a total of 69 side quests for you to complete.

Even though Inaba is a relatively small town, doing these side quests will allow you to learn more about the people that live there and help you grow your attachment to certain NPCs. Moreover, 9 of the 69 side quests are directly tied to the Hermit (Fox) Social Link. So, completing all of them will result in you reaching a Rank 10 S.Link bond with the Shrine Fox.

People around Inaba that are in need of your assistance can be identified by the blue icon over their heads. However, the icon will turn golden once you’ve accepted their request. Although the icon disappears once you clear the quest, the blue icon might reappear again if they have a new request.

Having said that, most quests in Persona 4 Golden are simple fetch quests that are automatically completed by clearing dungeons and collecting items dropped by various enemies. However, there are still some quests that require extensive legwork. In addition, some late-game quests will compel you to revisit an early-game dungeon.

Sadly, the game barely ever provides any useful hints on how to complete the more ambiguous requests. That is why we have prepared a list of every side quest you take up in Persona 4 Golden, along with how to complete them.

All Side Quests in Persona 4 Golden

Below are all the side quests you can do in Persona 4 Golden, along with how to unlock them, where to find them, their unlocking date and requirements, and rewards. Moreover, we will also guide you on how to successfully complete these quests once accepted.
