[[folder: Mai]]
Mai is the winner of last year's battle royale. She is briefly seen during a TV news report in the beginning of the movie, while she is hugging a bloody doll. The reporter notes that Mai is smiling, but fails to note of how crazed her smile is, as Mai's experience had driven her mad. She appears twice in the second movie, by that time she has [[spoiler:become a member of Wild Seven, a terrorist organization led by Shuya Nanahara.]]

* CuteAndPsycho: She would be a cute teenage girl, wouldn't it be for her slasher smile. This is even more true in ''Requiem'' ([[spoiler:she puts explosives into her doll and kills soldiers]]).
* TheDollEpisode: She still keeps her doll even after winning battle royale, but it's blood-splattered by now as a symbol for her SubvertedInnocence. In ''Requiem'' she uses her doll [[spoiler:to hide explosives to kill soldiers]].
* [[HeroOfAnotherStory Heroine Of Another Story]]: While she is only a hero from the standpoint of the government, she is the winner of the last BR-program, so you can imagine that she did lots of killing and also hiding from danger.
* SanitySlippage: She turned crazy after seeing her classmates die and probably killing a lot of them too. It seems that she started out rather innocent but became tougher after lots of blood.
* SlasherSmile: She gives a very dark one in the beginning, although the reporter says she's just smiling.
* AWinnerIsYou: She won the last battle royale, but other than surviving, what did she gain? The government neither give her any prize, nor any promotion, so she is all on her own after the game. [[spoiler:She joins Shuya's group later on however.]]

She appears in the briefing video shortly before the game starts. She seems to be in her late 20s and wears an orange top, camouflage hot pants, a camouflage cap, a head-set and many accessories. She speaks in a very cheerful voice, makes many wild gestures and seems to be just too happy about the game.
* AnAxeToGrind: She shows an axe as an example of what weapons might be hiding in the backpacks.
* ComedicSociopathy: She is so happy and cheerful in the anticipation of lots of blood and suffering that it becomes grotesque.
* GenkiGirl: She seems to be in her late 20s, but behaves like a teenager at best, is very energetic and disturbingly upbeat. She uses many exaggerated gestures too.
* GoodLuckGesture: She makes many exaggerated gestures to wish them (sarcastically) good luck.
* MilitarySalute: She starts her announcement with saluting in front of the students.
* MsExposition: She gives basic information about the rules, the island and the equipment of every participant.
* NoNameGiven: Her name is nowhere to be found.
* PerkyFemaleMinion: Her upbeat and genki personality contrasts Kitano's stoic and tired SeenItAll-attitude. Kitano is still a huge fan of her.
* PsychopathicManchild: She is clearly older but behaves like a hyperactive teenage girl. She's still clearly a psychopath.
* PutTheLaughterInSlaughter: She finds it absolutely hilarious that the teens will soon be killing each other. She is extremely (darkly) cheerful and makes bloodthirsty/taunting remarks.
* ShowWithinAShow: She only appears on a video tape to give her instructions. It's rather overproduced and seems to be a parody of Japanese music shows and/or game shows. Kitano treats it like his favorite TV show.
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: We never learn what happens to her during or after the game.
