** [[BigBad Kinpatsu Sakamochi]] (novel) is the [[SadistTeacher sadistic director]] of the Survival Program, and a ProfessionalButtKisser and PsychoSupporter of the Government. Willing to hurt anybody that stands in his way, he murders Mr. Hayashida, Class 3-B's teacher, for protesting the Survival Program. To show that he means business, he displays his corpse to the class. During the briefing on the Program, he casually tells the students that some of their parents died trying to stop him. When Yoshitoki Kuninobu asks what happened to he and Shuya's caretaker at the orphanage, he brags about raping her, which sets off Yoshitoki and [[WouldHurtAChild prompts Sakamochi to kill him]]. To [[KickTheDog really twist the knife]], he reveals that he was lying about raping the caretaker just to piss Yoshitoki off and give him an excuse to kill somebody. He later then throws a knife at another student [[DisproportionateRetribution just for whispering]], and shoots Noriko in the leg for protesting his actions. He [[HopeCrusher takes joy in dashing the hopes of the students competing]], such as when Megumi tried to call her parents, only for Sakamochi to intercept the call and taunt her. Throughout the game, he'd make snarky comments at the expense of the dead students. At the end of the book, he reveals that he has children of his own, but would gladly sacrifice them in the Program to boost his own reputation. He even made sure to brainwash his kids into accepting that fate. He then learns that Shogo managed to disable Shuya and Noriko's collars, leading him to fatally shoot Shogo before [[MutualKill meeting his own demise]].

** And that's not even mentioning the countless times where school shootings have made the idea of school kids killing each other extremely unsettling. The Virginia Tech massacre in particular caused the American remake to be stuck in DevelopmentHell.

*** She may have crossed it a lot earlier, when she [[spoiler:murders a defenseless Megumi Eto, especially because she does it so casually and with no remorse whatsoever]]. The event shows three important things about Mitsuko : she plays to win, she will do it without hesitation and she's ready to lie, manipulate and backstab in order to do it.
* NauseaFuel: Mitsuko's complete mental breakdown and [[spoiler:slow death at Kazuo Kiriyama's hands in the manga.]] Also a bit of a TearJerker.

** Some of the students who went insane and tried to kill their classmates, like Yoshio Akamatsu, Kyoichi Motobuchi or Kaori Minami. After all, they're nothing but normal students, suddenly thrown in a deadly game where it's "kill or be killed". They couldn't handle the situation and snapped, but they weren't "evil".
