Courage is essential for unlocking and bypassing various roadblocks. So, it’s recommended that you increase your courage level fast in Persona 3 Reload to progress through certain social links. You can try various activities in Persona 3 Reload to raise your Courage stat to level 5, which I have discussed below.

Key Takeaways

You can sing a solo song at Karaoke in Mandragora, which is located inside Paulownia Mall. You can visit Mandragora during the evening or after school. While this method doesn’t yield you a lot of Courage points, it’s still cost-efficient.

You can choose to drink dubious medicines at the Nurse’s Office to increase your Courage in Persona 3 Reload. I recommend you try the method as often as you can since visiting the nurse’s office won’t take up your time. You can visit it after school.

I recommend you work part-time at Chagall Cafe as doing so will not only reward you with a Courage point but also get a Charm point. Furthermore, the job pays you a good base amount and occasionally more if you want to earn some quick money. You can work part-time during the evening.

My Thoughts On Increasing Courage

Courage is a vital stat in Persona 3 Reload that will unblock potential hurdles, especially while completing your social links. Therefore, it’s essential to increase your Courage along with other social stats as soon as you can. Getting your Courage to level 2 will allow you to visit Club Escapade during the early game. 

I recommend you raise your Courage stats during the evening in Persona 3 Reload when there are fewer social links. If you are looking to increase your Social Links, check out the guides on Magician Social Link and Chariot Social Link.
