Friendship Level is the progression of a character's bond with the Traveler. This progress bar is raised by obtaining Companionship EXP. All Characters in the Party gain the shown amount equally; removing or adding Characters to the Party does not give the other Characters more or less EXP.

Friendship Levels are primarily used to unlock character stories, voice-overs, and character namecards.

Friendship Levels[]

  1. Starting Friendship Level. "Character Details" and some Voice-Overs are already unlocked.
  2. Unlocks the character's Story 1 (found in their Profile) and their second expression in Photo Mode. Their "More About (Character): I" voice-over line is also usually unlocked if it wasn't already unlocked.
  3. Unlocks Story 2 and the "More About (Character): II" voice-over.
  4. Unlocks Story 3, their third expression in Photo Mode, a new dialogue option when the character is placed in the Serenitea Pot, and many voice-over lines, including most voice-over lines about other characters. May unlock the character's item story (the one with a unique title).
  5. Unlocks Story 4 and the "More About (Character): IV" voice-over.
  6. Unlocks all remaining Character Stories (Story 5, Vision, and possibly the item story) and all remaining voice-over lines that are tied to Friendship Level.
  7. Unlocks an additional dialogue option when character is placed in the Serenitea Pot.
  8. No additional unlocks
  9. No additional unlocks
  10. Unlocks a Namecard for that character and progresses the Hitherto Unknown achievement.

Note that some stories and voice-over lines have additional unlock requirements, such as completion of certain quests. Also note that some voice-over lines cannot be unlocked with increased Friendship Levels, such as the lines related to ascension.

Raising Friendship Levels[]

Companionship EXP can be gained through the following methods:

Note: The EXP given for some of these methods is based on your Adventure Rank, can be doubled in Co-op Mode, and is only earned by the characters on the active party, excluding the Traveler or any characters already at Friendship Level 10.
