Trivia[edit]

Etymology[edit]

  • The Joker is a playing card found in most modern card decks, as an addition to the standard four suits (clubs, diamonds, hearts, and spades).
  • Jokers can be used as a wild card in card games and can often be used to represent any other playing card, sometimes with certain restrictions.
  • Joker's Skill names and icons are all based on skills or weapons from the game Persona 5.
    • All-Out Attack is a game mechanic where all party members can attack at once for massive damage if all enemies are knocked down.
    • Eiha is a skill which deals light curse damage to a single foe.

    • Adverse Resolve is a passive skill which increases critical hit rate when the party is ambushed.
    • 1 More is a game mechanic where the attacker can gain one more chance to attack if the target is knocked down by their attack.

    • Morgana's effect is based on the skill Dia, which heals a small amount of HP
    • Yusuke's effect is based on the skill Tetrakarn/Makarakarn, which reflects physical/magical damage equal to the damage dealt. (The Granblue Fantasy version has mitigated its effect, however.)

Sky Blue Rendezvous[edit]

Joker and his team slip into a world with floating islands through a crack discovered in Mementos. Seeking clues in a nearby town as to where they are, the Phantom Thieves are about to fight with locals when they hear approaching footsteps behind them.



Joker and his fellow thieves slip through a crack in Mementos, which drops them in a sprawling green meadow surrounded by endless blue sky.
Skull: How's that huge hunka land floatin' in the sky?
Panther: Mmm! Wind feels great!
Fox: Cerulean sky, sea of cloudy white, crimson red suit, and verdant green grass...
Panther stretches while Fox uses his fingers to frame her for a potential composition.
Mona: Hey, you guys! Stop horsing around or else you're gonna fall off the edge!
Skull: No sweat! Just morph into an airplane and fly us to safety!
Mona: As if!
Panther: Hey, do you think you could use your Mona Power to get us over to that other island?
Mona: I told you already! I'm not some kinda robot-cat who's here to serve you!
Fox: Ah... What a beautiful contrast...
Fox: (I do believe this will make for a nice motif.)
Meanwhile Joker stands away from his rowdy companions, thinking to himself.
Mona: What's up, Joker?
Joker: Look!
A large airship suddenly surfaces from the clouds, throwing up a gust of wind as it passes.
Panther: Aaah! It almost blew me over!
Skull: Dude! The hell's that big ol' flyin' thing?
Mona: Looks like a flying ship?
Fox: A low-angle shot of that flyby would make another great picture...
Joker: Let's go after it.
Skull: Good call! They gotta know somethin' 'bout this world!
Joker and the others chase after the flying ship.
The ship sets down somewhere within a town with a grand tower.
Skull: Holy crap! It looks like a European city!
Mona: Earth to Skull! There are probably Shadows here! Stay sharp!
Skull: Chillax! I'm on top of things!
Panther: It doesn't look like Shadows would be here... Feels safe to me.
Fox: Hm. Let's take a stroll through the place then.
The Phantom Thieves relax a bit as they walk down a busy street.
Skull: Check it out! Some of these people have furry ears and some have horns!
Panther: Cosplayers maybe? At least that helps us blend in a little...
Mona: Now that you mention it, we're still in our Phantom Thieves gear. Does that make this world similar to a Metaverse?
Fox: Wait a minute. I smell something good...
Fox: I volunteer myself to scout the area for free samples!
Mona: This isn't the time for that!
Panther: Ooh, look! I want to see what's happening over there!
Joker: Let's check it out.
They make their way to what appears to be the busiest square in town.
Mona: Some kinda festival?
Fox: The street performers are out in full force.
Various performers line the area, vying for the eyeballs of would-be fans.
Panther: Wow! That's amazing!
Skull: Yo, check it!
Joker: What?
Skull: It's a sign callin' for arm wrestlers!
The sign boasts a prize pot that includes all the entry fees paid up thus far.
Fox: Using arm wrestling to make money...
Skull: That's my jam right there! I think I'm gonna take a shot at it.
Panther: Huh? Forget it! Don't those guys give you the creeps?
Ruffian: C'mon! Is no one brave enough to step up to the challenge?
A group of shady-looking Draphs are promoting their booth loudly, looking for takers.
Mona: They do look like bad news.
Skull: It's cool, right, Joker? I just wanna try it once.
Joker: If that's what you want.
Skull: Okay! Let's rock!
They follow Skull to the arm wrestling booth.
Skull: 'Sup! I'll take you on!
Ruffian: What's with the mask? That's some weird gear you guys got on...
Skull: Mask?
Oh, this. Uh, it's, uh...
Skull: I just like collectin' 'em, okay? Just got it from a shop!
Ruffian: Whatever. First ya gotta pay the entry fee!
Skull: Okay! This should cover it!
The ruffian's expression changes as he eyes the money offered by Skull.
Ruffian: Huh? The hell is this? We only bet with money here. Mo-ney.
Skull: Huh? That's money right there.
Ruffian: ...
We take rupies, bud.
Skull: Rupies?
Ruffian: You mockin' me? If you're tryin' to start somethin', I'mma knock you out.
Mona: Psst, Skull! Let's scram!
Mona jumps in to diffuse the situation. That's when the ruffian takes a deep interest in him.
Ruffian: What's the weird creature?
Mona: I'm not a weird creature! I'm full-on human!
Skull: Dude, I thought you were steppin' in to stop a fight, not start one!
Ruffian: Interesting...
Ruffian: Tell you what. Instead of betting rupies, I'll let you bet that cat-thing.
Skull: That's the deal? Well, Mona?
Mona: How could you even think about putting me up as a bet!
Mona: And I ain't a cat either!
Panther: Come on, everyone's looking at us. Let's just go!
The ruffian now turns his attention to Panther.
Ruffian: Ooh... That cutie's even better!
Panther: Huh? Me?
Ruffian: Whaddya say, babe? Wanna come with me?
Panther: In your dreams.
Ruffian: What!
Mona: Yeah! Who in their right mind would want to hang out with you?
Skull: Damn it! Everyone just chill!
Fox: Wait!
Fox suddenly bounds in front of the ruffian with excitement.
Fox: So it has come to this. In regards to your previous offer, would you allow me to be the wager?
Ruffian: No.
Fox: What? Why! Why am I unacceptable!
Ruffian: Shut up! Dem's the breaks. Now butt out!
Skull: Bro, bro! Let's just forget about it, 'kay? Our bad for bringin' it up!
Skull tries to force his way out of the predicament with the seething ruffian.
Ruffian: I've had it up to here with you jokers! You ain't gettin' away with this!
Skull: Uh, yeah... That's why I apologized, didn't I?
The ruffian grabs hold of Skull's shoulders, signaling that the situation is about to get out of hand.
Panther: Oh no! This is not going to end well!
Fox: Yes. We're on a collision course with an unavoidable fight.
Mona: Joker! Do something!
Joker: I guess I have to.
With a slight shrug, Joker prepares to step into the mix, when he hears the approaching patter of footsteps.
Unbeknownst to anyone at the time, this chance encounter between thieves and skyfarers would lead to new friendships.

Sky Blue Reflections[edit]

Returning to their own world, the Phantom Thieves hold a hot pot after-party in the attic of Leblanc. They reminisce excitedly about their Sky Realm adventure as they wait for the hot pot to come to a boil.



With their adventures in the Sky Realm over, the Phantom Thieves return to their own world.
They gather in the attic of Cafe Leblanc a few days later for a hot pot after-party.
Ann Takamaki: I'm turning the hot plate on.
Ryuji Sakamoto: Hurry... I'm 'bout to starve to death.
Yusuke Kitagawa: Will this tide you over for now?
Yusuke offers Ryuji a packaged snack.
Ryuji Sakamoto: Yes! Thank you!
Morgana: Geez, Lady Ann went through the trouble to put this hot pot together. Can't you wait a little longer?
Ann Takamaki: It's all right. We can have a toast. Everyone grab a cup!
Morgana: Someone pour me a bowl!
Yusuke Kitagawa: Would you do the honors?
After everyone's received a drink, Ren calmly raises his own.
Ren Amamiya: Good work, everyone. Cheers.
The Four: Cheers!
Cups of juice and tea come together in celebration of a job well done.
Ann Takamaki: We went through so much, but the important thing is we all made it back safely.
Ryuji Sakamoto: Was pretty fun doin' somethin' different from a Palace.
Morgana: All of you were acting like complete tourists!
Yusuke Kitagawa: Heh. I can still see that beautiful landscape whenever I close my eyes.
Skull: How's that huge hunka land floatin' in the sky?
Panther: Mmm! Wind feels great!
Fox: Cerulean sky, sea of cloudy white, crimson red suit, and verdant green grass...
Mona: Hey, you guys! Stop horsing around or else you're gonna fall off the edge!
Ryuji Sakamoto: Real talk. Islands floatin' in the sky is insane!
Ann Takamaki: Totally! It's so beautiful seeing the sky all around you!
Morgana: What shocked me was that huge flying ship!
Yusuke Kitagawa: Airships, they call them. They are certainly picturesque.
Ren Amamiya: And we even chased after one all the way into a town.
Skull: Holy crap! It looks like a European city!
Fox: Hm. Let's take a stroll through the place then.
Skull: Check it out! Some of these people have furry ears, and some have horns!
Panther: Cosplayers maybe? At least that helps us blend in a little...
Mona: Now that you mention it, we're still in our Phantom Thieves gear. Does that make this world similar to a Metaverse?
Ryuji Sakamoto: There was like a huge castle or somethin'—and some sorta pier! It was pretty sweet!
Ann Takamaki: It was so busy with all those airships coming and going along the docks!
Yusuke Kitagawa: It was a marvelous place overflowing with many curiosities, and I wanted to explore every corner of it.
Morgana: It's not hard to see why people and goods would gather in Port Breeze when it's one of the leading trade hubs in the region.
Ann Takamaki: I thought Erunes and Draphs were cosplayers when I first saw them!
Something in Ann's words causes Ryuji to clasp his hands together as if offering a prayer. His face turns solemn.
Ryuji Sakamoto: Bless the Erune honeys for their open-back, sleeveless style.
Ryuji Sakamoto: And bless the Draph honeys for their big, uh...
Phew...
Yusuke Kitagawa: Amen...
Ann Takamaki: That's the sort of moronic things you two were thinking about back then?
Yusuke Kitagawa: I believe Ryuji is commenting on the fact that lovely ladies, as well as lovely scenery, are a feast for the eyes that anyone can appreciate.
Ryuji Sakamoto: Bingo! Eyes need food too!
Ann Takamaki: Hmm... Boys are so simple.
Morgana: Not me, Lady Ann! I'm different!
Morgana: Unlike these two, I'm completely serious when it comes to thinking about the future!
Ann Takamaki: Mm-hm. I'm done with this conversation.
Morgana: Darn it...
Ren Amamiya: Need a drink?
Morgana: Yeah...
Ren pours Morgana some tea in solidarity.
Like the ingredients inside the hot pot, the conversation slowly comes to an excited boil.

Sky Blue Reflections: Scene 2[edit]

Each of the Phantom Thieves tells a story about their personal experience in the Sky Realm in between bites from the hot pot. The mood grows solemn as the party progresses.



Ryuji Sakamoto: All right, guys...
Let's dig in!
The Four: Yeah, let's eat!
Discussing their time in the Sky Realm was the perfect activity to give the hot pot time to boil.
Ryuji Sakamoto: Aah... Haa-hot... Damn, this is good!
Ann Takamaki: Use your head! You're gonna burn your mouth eating it that fast!
Morgana: Lady Ann! I can't eat hot stuff, so can you blow on my food for me?
Ann Takamaki: I'm on it.
Phwoo, phwoo.
Yusuke Kitagawa: Me too please.
Ann Takamaki: Do it yourself.
Yusuke Kitagawa: Urg...
Phwoo, phwoo!
Sitting around the hot pot, eating happily, the Phantom Thieves reminisce about the crew.
Ryuji Sakamoto: Man, those skyfarers were great.
Morgana: Yeah. They came to our rescue even though we must've seemed weird to them.
Skull: Damn it! Can't get a straight answer here!
Ruffian: What's wit' da attitude? Ya wanna throw down?
Vyrn: Uh-oh... Sparks are about to fly!
Katalina: Hold on! All of you!
Yusuke Kitagawa: They accepted us even though they knew we were Phantom Thieves. They are paragons of great magnanimity.
Vyrn: That's pretty wild!
Lyria: Yes! Very cool!
Skull: Huh... That was quick. Maybe a little too quick?
Ann Takamaki: I really got to know them when we were hiding in Siero's warehouse.
Panther: Oh my gosh! This is sooo cute! I've never seen a pattern like this before!
Panther: Don't you think so too, Lyria-chan? Isn't it cute?
Lyria: Um...
Katalina: Haha. Go on, Lyria. It might be nice to have some girl talk for a change.
Lyria: Okay then!
Lyria: Show me more, Panther!
Ren Amamiya: What did you talk to the crew members about?
Ryuji Sakamoto: Me? I was askin' Rackam 'bout the airship.
Ryuji Sakamoto: Hearin' him talk 'bout steerin' the airship was like whoa!
Ann Takamaki: Wait, didn't you two end up talking about ramen?
Ryuji Sakamoto: Yep! Guess they got ramen too!
Ryuji Sakamoto: We swapped info on the best ramen shops.
Ann Takamaki: You really love ramen, don't you...
Ryuji Sakamoto: So what'd you talk about then?
Ann Takamaki: Lyria and I talked about fashion. And then we talked about sweets!
Ann Takamaki: Lyria has a sweet tooth too, so we really hit it off when we got to cakes!
Morgana: I asked Vyrn about any sushi places that served ootoro, but...
Ryuji Sakamoto: See, I'm not the only one who talked about food!
Yusuke Kitagawa: I asked Katalina to pose for my art work but she refused.
Ryuji Sakamoto: Wait a sec. You asked her for a nude pose?
Ann Takamaki: Sigh... So you haven't learned anything from the last time you did that.
Ryuji Sakamoto: You can't just drop that on someone you just met. That's shameless, man.
Yusuke Kitagawa: Then if another opportunity arises, I will establish a deeper relationship first before I ask.
Ryuji Sakamoto: Dude... That's not the problem...
Morgana: How about you, Ren?
Ren Amamiya: (Captain) and I were discussing coffee.
Ann Takamaki: Oh really? So (Captain) likes coffee too!
Ren Amamiya: (Captain) wanted to know how to brew up a good cup of joe, so I gave some tips.
Yusuke Kitagawa: Now there's a good use of time.
Morgana: It was really great meeting everyone in that crew.
Ryuji Sakamoto: We probably wouldn't be chowin' down on hot pot right now if we hadn't met 'em!
Ryuji concentrates on digging for food in the pot.
Ryuji Sakamoto: Mmm... Chomp, chomp... Sooo good!
Ann Takamaki: Hey! You can't just keep eating nothing but meat!
Ryuji Sakamoto: Who? Me?
Ann Takamaki: Eat some vegetables too! Or else!
Ryuji Sakamoto: Sorry, sorry. I'll grab somethin' green too...
Although Ryuji has been hoarding the meat, the party keeps right on going.

Sky Blue Reflections: Scene 3[edit]

Ryuji wonders what it would've been like to live in the Sky Realm, and everyone hopes that someday they'll be able to see the crew again. With the party drawing to a close, the Phantom Thieves prepare to return to the difficult days ahead.



Yusuke Kitagawa: Thank you for the meal.
The Four: That really hit the spot!
The foursome lay down their utensils and take a little breather.
Ryuji Sakamoto: Whew... I'm stuffed...
Yusuke Kitagawa: That was delicious.
Morgana: Lady Ann's gonna make a good wife with her cooking skills.
Ann Takamaki: Oh, please. Anybody can make hot pot taste good.
As the hot pot party draws to a close, the Phantom Thieves relive exciting memories of their adventure.
Ryuji Sakamoto: Too bad we couldn't stay longer to do more sightseeing.
Morgana: It felt like you were all set to stay behind back there, Ryuji.
Ryuji Sakamoto: I thought about it. Like what would happen to us if we decided to crash there for a bit?
Yusuke Kitagawa: We would have become skyfarers like (Captain) and the others most likely.
Ryuji Sakamoto: How cool would that be? Blastin' through the sky on an airship as the Phantom Thieves Crew!
Ryuji Sakamoto: We'd team up with (Captain)'s posse, stop bad guys, and become famous!
Ryuji Sakamoto: Then I'd be popular with the Erune and Draph babes—
Ann Takamaki: Nope! I'm going to stop your delusions right there!
Morgana: They're aiming for the ends of the skies, and we're out to punish the corrupted. We both have our own goals, you know?
Ryuji Sakamoto: Yeah, I hear ya...
A tinge of sadness washes over Ryuji's face.
Ryuji Sakamoto: Those skyfarers were pretty dope though...
Ryuji Sakamoto: Wish we coulda hung out like this and grabbed a bite together.
Yusuke Kitagawa: Mm. And then top it all off with some rice soup.
Morgana: They're good people. I hope we get a chance to meet them again.
Ren Amamiya: I hope so too.
Ann Takamaki: Yeah... We'll definitely meet again.
Ann stares at the matching ring she got with Lyria, wishing for a reunion in the future.
The after-party comes to a close. From now on it's back to the grind of hunting the wicked.
