* LastNameBasis: Almost all of the students call each other with their surnames in the original game, including Monokuma. With some exceptions: Hifumi uses FullNameBasis instead, Toko/Genocide Jill calls Byakuya by his first name, Jill calls others by nicknames based of their first names, Aoi calls Sakura by her first name, and Celestia is generally called Celes(te).

* LastNameBasis: Almost all of the students call each other with by their surnames in the original game, including Monokuma.Monokuma, which is perfectly normal in Japan. With some exceptions: Hifumi uses FullNameBasis instead, Toko/Genocide Jill calls Byakuya by his first name, Jill calls others by nicknames based of their first names, Aoi calls Sakura by her first name, and Celestia is generally called Celes(te).



* TheSociopath: He has kids kill each other for fun, what do you expect?



* HopelessSuitor: Mukuro had a huge crush on Makoto, but sadly it doesn't stop her from helping Junko go through with her plans to throw the world into despair. In "''IF''", Junko even calls her out on being this. According to Junko, Mukuro wasn't brave to admit her feelings for him during their school life, and Makoto actually had feelings for Kyouko at the time.

* DepravedBisexual: As Monokuma, she frequently made lewd comments about her classmates regardless of sex and talked about [[ThePeepingTom spying on them]]. [[AmbiguouslyBi How legitimate this is is ultimately dependant on how much of the Monokuma persona is an act or not]].

** Even though they're the same weight, her sister clearly has her beat in [[GagBoobs another area]], with the hamburger dialogue option in School Mode's dining hall implying she makes up the difference with muscle despite being so lanky.

* BirdsOfAFeather: Mondo and Kiyotaka, oddly. Both have personalities defined by surpassing someone: for Mondo it's his brother and for Kiyotaka it's his grandfather. The main difference is that Toranosuke Ishimaru died with a legacy of corruption and debt upon his family, setting a bar that Kiyotaka can potentially overcome through force of will (which he's chosen to focus of his life around). Meanwhile Daiya Owada died through a gutsy act proving the lengths he'd go to protect his little brother on the night that Mondo was supposed to surpass him, and now Mondo spends his days simply trying to live up to his brother's memory without a specific end-goal (since the bar was raised to a point Mondo can't possibly reach). This divergence in motivations gives Mondo an insecure, aggressive personality while Kiyotaka ends up with a driven but overbearing personality.

* DwindlingParty: Fifteen students in a school where the only way out is through murder. [[BlatantLies Surely no one will take Monokuma up on his offer of graduation]]!

* FireForgedFriends: For Makoto and Kyoko, the coldness mostly is on her end. Still, Makoto ends up closer with her than anyone else after fighting so many trials together save for whatever Free-Time Events the player chooses to take part in.

** TheKirk: Makoto (can be very emotional, but he never allows them cloud his judgement)
** TheMcCoy: Aoi (is more guided by her feelings than most, and has a number of kneejerk-reactions that get her believing all-too-quickly in the most obvious culprit)

* GenreBlind: Most of the students try to remain hopeful that there won't be any murders - or any ''more'' murders - in a murder mystery game. [[JustifiedTrope Of course]], they're trying to avoid falling into despair like Monokuma wants.

* GrumpyBear: Byakuya and Toko, two of the most negative people in the group who seem to reflect the world's apparent level of cynicism, both survive [[SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism to see the story to its hopeful conclusion]].
* AHouseDivided: The nature of Monokuma's game has this effect, as you can't be certain who's going to try to graduate, especially with people like Byakuya, who doesn't even pretend to cooperate with the others (Ironic, given he survives). Monokuma later invokes this in Chapter 4's motive, by revealing TheMole's identity.

* LetsSplitUpGang: A common decision among the students once the investigation starts up. Even when they'd all agreed to unite, the final group of students decided to take on the investigation separately in the same Franchise/ScoobyDoo-like fashion from which this trope is derived, knowing they only have a limited amount of time to solve all the school's mysteries or they die. [[NeverSplitTheParty Makoto wanted to do the opposite at first]].

* MrViceGuy[=/=]MsViceGirl: Many students are [[{{Pride}} prideful]], [[NoSympathy insensitive]], [[{{Greed}} greedy]], [[ManipulativeBastard manipulative]], [[ItsAllAboutMe self-serving]], [[DirtyCoward cowardly]], [[HairTriggerTemper quick-to-anger]], or just [[TheDitz dull-witted]]. But at the same time, every one of them was considered worthy of representing the hope for the future, if only by virtue of the BigBad wanting to save them for enacting her DespairGambit by [[HopeCrusher crushing the hope they all shared]]. Many are also implied to have grown out of these character-flaws during the 2 years which were erased from their memories (shown to be the case in most AU stories like School Mode or "''IF''").

* NotAMorningPerson: In another early bout for characterization, Makoto's narration categorizes the students by how late or early they show up to breakfast (with Sayaka's seemingly falling into the diligent category and yet not showing up tipping everyone off that something might be wrong). Yasuhiro, Toko, Leon, Celeste and Kyoko get described as "a group of people who do things in their own pace and don't care about other people's time." Byakuya shows up even later than them.

* OlderThanTheyLook: The players/viewers are lead to believe that the students are all aged 16-17. However, it is revealed in Chapter 6 that they had been at Hope's Peak for ''two years'' as students before the start of the game and their memories as students were erased, meaning they are actually 18-19, with the exception of Yasuhiro, who is 20/22 throughout the game, as he failed two or three grades.

* ParentalNeglect: The commonality of negligent fathers shared by the cast probably goes a long way explaining [[DysfunctionJunction how some of them turned out as screw up as they did]].
** Mr. Fukawa's relationship with two women (neither of whom knowing or caring who's the mother) had plenty to do with his daughter's mental state.

** The last head of the Togami family is responsible for continuing/cultivating the cut throat tradition that molded his son into the ruthless successor he is today. That fact would probably weigh heavily on the conscience of anyone besides a Togami.

* SeinfeldianConversation: The students have a tendency to get sidetracked by small tangents marginally related to the task at hand, or [[DeadpanSnarker snarking]] at each other when someone makes stupid addition to the conversation (which itself tends to develop into another conversation). It gets {{lampshaded}} by Yasuhiro when Byakuya joins the main group in chapter 5, with his no-nonsense attitude flying in the face of how they never get straight to the point (though he ironically [[NotSoAboveItAll falls into the same trap inside that conversation too]]).

** And let's not forget her title. Her real title is Ultimate Soldier, which also fits, though it's revealed early in Chapter 6 that her Ultimate Despair title is shared with a group of people.

* ACupAngst: The nature of her outbursts and personal attacks against Aoi strongly implies, if not outright establishes, that she has a severe case of breast envy and is also in deep denial about it.

* RidiculouslyHumanRobot: Despite being an AI, Alter Ego has feelings like a human and sees the students of class 78 as their friends. For some reason, they seem to have something like touch sensories, as it is shown that they can be tickled. This heavily implies that [[FridegeHorror Alter Ego suffered pain during their execution like any human, too]].

* IfItsYouImOkay: Along with his 2D fetish, Hifumi completely ignores that the real Chihiro Fujisaki was [[UnsettlingGenderReveal a guy the whole time]] and falls heads over heels for Alter Ego. Although, there are straight, male with [[OtokonokoGenre a fetish for male-to-female crossdressers]] in real life, so maybe this isn't too far off.
