Kaede Akamatsu

Ultimate Pianist

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/kaede_9.png

“I believe in you... so believe in yourself too!"

Voiced By: Sayaka Kanda (Japanese), Erika Harlacher (English)

The initial Player Character. A girl who started playing piano at a young age, and eventually began winning so many recitals that she was crowned the Ultimate Pianist. She's cheerful, outgoing, and motivated, and directs these traits toward escaping Monokuma and his murderous game.

She is labeled as the culprit of Chapter 1, having modified Shuichi Saihara's trap to catch the mastermind by adding a death trap to it. After she is executed for the murder of Rantaro Amami, Shuichi becomes the protagonist from Chapter 2 onward. Near the end of the game, it's revealed that her death trap was actually a failure and that in reality she was framed by the mastermind - Tsumugi Shirogane - as Rantaro's murderer, due to Monokuma's Time Limit motive failing to produce a murder victim, making her the first and only Danganronpa character so far to have been executed on a false charge.


  • Accidental Truth: She states that the mastermind and Rantaro's killer were one in the same at the beginning of the first class trial, even though Kaede believed she herself was the killer. Fast forward to the final chapter, and it turns out she was right.
  • Acquitted Too Late: The heroes figure out she's only guilty of attempted murder... long after she's been falsely executed for Rantaro's demise.
  • Adorkable: She has her moments. During her Love Hotel Event, she insisted that Shuichi should call her by her first name (in the English dub, it's changed to calling her "sweetheart" instead). When he complies with her request, Kaede reacts in embarrassment.
  • Ain't Too Proud to Beg: When she asked Miu for her help, Kaede literally got on her hands and knees and begged Miu for her assistance in setting up a trap for the mastermind. Comedically, Kaede threatens to continue bowing to her once she saw that Miu was visibly uncomfortable with her gesture, resulting in Miu agreeing to Kaede's request.
  • Bad Liar: The one time she has to lie during a Class Trial, she stutters when asked if she's really being truthful, and Oma and Shinguji both immediately call her out for lying anyway.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: An odd example. The Kaede seen in the game really is a Nice Girl, but the Kaede that seems to have applied to Team Danganronpa's audition was much more cynical and seemed to be all too happy to kill.
    Kaede: I'm perfect for a killing game. I don't have any faith in humanity.
  • Chekhov's Skill: Much like Ibuki from Danganronpa 2, her talent as a musician means she is able to distinguish everyone's voices. This greatly helps her (and the player) in a game mechanic called Panic Debate where multiple characters will simultaneously speak and freely say whatever they want, increasing the information levied onscreen and making finding contradicting statements even harder than it should be.
    • When Saihara takes over as the protagonist, he is explicitly worse at performing in the Mass Panic Debate due to the fact that his hearing isn't nearly as good as hers.
  • Clear Their Name: In the Chapter 1 class trial, when Saihara becomes the prime culprit for being one of two people who know of the camera's 30-second delay, she gives him an alibi and clears him of suspicion. He returns the favor in Chapter 6 by proving that Kaede is not the true culprit of Rantarou's murder.
  • Color Motif: She has a pale purple palette as seen in her eyes, vest, tights, and skirt.
  • Consummate Liar: She's able to use Lie Bullets to strategically sway the group's attention in the direction she needs.
  • Contrasting Sequel Main Character: Makoto and Hajime were boys, were straight men, and were both rather passive and hesitantly thrust into leadership roles. These traits also apply to Komaru, minus gender. These previous protagonists were also very idealistic, focusing on hope and honesty to get their way. Kaede, on the other hand, is a girl (once again, this doesn't contrast with Komaru), is much more assertive than all three, and is more willing to lie and even kill, and understands how it's necessary to achieve her goals.
  • Cruel and Unusual Death: Gets thrown onto a huge piano and is hung and strangled repeatedly as her body is used to play a beginner's song by the Monokubs, all accompanied by a crowd of Monokumas booing whilst hurling rocks at Kaede. Finally, the execution concludes with the giant piano closing its spiked cover on Kaede's lifeless body, crushing her like an iron maiden.
  • The Cynic: Pre-brainwashed Kaede in the prologue was shown to be this. Before being given her talent, Kaede viewed the world as a cruel place, since no one came to her rescue when she was getting kidnapped. She even refers to herself as "a normal high-school student with no redeeming qualities". After being subjected to the "Flashback Light" at the beginning of the game, her personality was altered so that she would act more optimistic.
  • Dead Star Walking: She is voiced by Sayaka Kanda, who is a famous singer and a part of the band TRUSTRICK, who also have contributed to the Danganronpa franchise before by providing theme songs for stage plays (she also portrayed Junko Enoshima) and the anime series.
  • Decoy Protagonist: While introduced as the protagonist, she ends up as the culprit of Chapter 1, which means, as per the rules of any killing game, she's a dead woman walking. After her death, Shuichi Saihara takes her place as the real hero of the game.
  • Determinator: She uses her determination and energy to lead the group. Taken to an extreme when she insistently made the cast go through the semi-impossible Despair Deathroad over and over again.
  • Elegant Classical Musician: As per her talent. It's said that she's won numerous competitions in the past too.
  • The Extremist Was Right: It takes five more chapters, but her attempted murder of Rantaro does eventually smoke out the mastermind.
  • Expy: Her design is very similar to Natsumi Kuzuryu, the younger sister of one of the Super Dangan Ronpa 2's main cast. Their similarities are even more apparent due to Natsumi being murdered near a piano.
  • Face Death with Dignity: Zigzagged. When it becomes clear she killed Rantaro, she lies and feigns resistance to make it easier for the others to accept her impending death, and also to make Saihara trust in his own skills more. Once Saihara makes certain of her guilt, she accepts her fate and soothes the others into accepting it, too.
  • Fatal Flaw: Her tendency to push forward with her own personal justice (i.e. what she believes is "right") has caused problems for herself and others. This happens in two instances; first, when she convinces the group in trying to escape via Monokuma's obvious trap (which was meant to push them further into Despair) and again when she tries to kill the mastermind. Her Japanese VA describes her as someone who goes a bit crazy with her beliefs.
  • Genki Girl: She is described as cheerful and forward-looking.
  • Go-Getter Girl: Described as "The type of person to take charge".
  • Guile Hero: Can be very pragmatic about dealing with the killing game, easily resorting to a death trap to kill the ringleader, quickly setting up said trap with a nearby witness without arousing suspicion, and manipulating a Class Trial to try to figure out their identity.
  • Hair Decorations: Wears hairpins shaped like musical notes.
  • Heel–Face Brainwashing: From a girl who doesn't trust anyone to a leader who believes in her classmates.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: She willingly allowed herself to be outed as Rantarou's killer in order to save the others since she wasn't comfortable invoking the first blood perk. Later made more tragic by how while she thought she really did kill him her attempt failed making her the only student executed on false charges.
  • Hidden Buxom: It might not look it (must be the sweater), but according to her profile she's rather stacked. Her bust measures at 90cm, which rivals Junko.
  • Ideal Hero: Kaede's natural kindness, bravery and charisma quickly unites the others under her leadership. It is her selflessness and faith in her friends that allows her to sacrifice herself to ultimately save them. However, prior to becoming brainwashed Kaede did not believe in any of those kinds of ideals.
  • Idiot Hair: Similar to her predecessors, she has an ahoge, though it's way less angular than the others.
  • Implied Love Interest: To Saihara.
  • In-Series Nickname: Called "piano idiot"/"piano freak" by her old friends before she got involved in this game's Mutual Killing Game for endlessly practicing piano all the time.
  • The Leader: She takes upon herself to lead the others. Rantaro even labels her as such.
  • The Lost Lenore: Like Sayaka before her, she ends up being this to the true main protagonist, Shuichi, once she is executed in Chapter 1.
  • Miscarriage of Justice: The recipient of the very first instance where Monokuma successfully executes someone who was in fact innocent of the murder they were convicted of.
  • Murder by Mistake: She intended to kill the mastermind only for Rantaro to fall into her trap. Subverted when it was revealed that she didn't kill anybody.
  • Mythology Gag: She isn't the first musician in the series to be killed by strangulation with a rope and had her lifeless body left hanging. Additionally, her execution finishes with a Casting Gag as her body is crushed. It gets even better when it's revealed that like her predecessor protagonist, Makoto Naegi, she was sentenced to execution despite actually being innocent of her crime. But unlike Kaede's execution, Makoto's execution was foiled by Alter-Ego.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: When she thought she accidentally killed Rantaro.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: She tampered the trap that Saihara set in the library, causing it to become a murder device in order to kill the mastermind. Unfortunately, it didn't kill the mastermind, and in fact gave them the perfect opportunity to kickstart the killing game by framing Kaede for a murder they subsequently committed for that express purpose.
  • Nice Girl: She seems very nice with her friends:
    Kaede: I believe in you...so believe in yourself too!
  • The Paragon: She's very confident and positive-minded, and her role as a leader-figure amongst the group sees her encouraging others, especially Saihara, to be the same.
  • Passing the Torch: She does this to Saihara, trusting him to solve the rest.
  • Plucky Girl: Responsible, upbeat and with fierce determination.
  • The Power of Friendship: Similar to Makoto, she is a firm believer of this, stating that they can defeat the mastermind as long as they are together.
  • Ship Tease: With Shuichi and Rantaro. She had a good chemistry with Shuichi in Chapter 1, it is also implied that the boy liked her. There is also a special CG of Rantaro painting her nails in the chapter's bonus event, not to mention both of them often got paired in many promotional materials.
  • Skirts and Ladders: In Chapter 1, she climbs to the top of a ladder to examine the top a book case and realizes too late that Shuichi can see up her skirt.
  • Small Role, Big Impact: She's not around for any longer than Chapter 1, but her impact on Shuichi allowed him to be more confident. Her influence is also what overall starts the group's unison.
  • Super Senses: Similar to Ibuki in the previous game, her hearing is super developed to the point where she can distinguish between multiple people talking simultaneously, allowing her to hear all students talking during the Panic Debates.
  • Sweater Girl: She wears a purplish-pink sweater.
  • Switching P.O.V.: With her purple UI slowly switching off, the player's point of view was passed to Shuichi Saihara in the First Trial.
  • Sympathetic Murderer: Her trap was intended to kill the mastermind, it just happened to be someone else who triggered it. She urges Shuichi to reveal she is the killer to the others, and feigns resistance to make it more believable for them. Subverted later on when it turns out the ball missed, and someone else killed the victim with an identical one afterward.
  • Tragic Hero: How her personal flaw lead to her death in the first place. Invoked as her brainwashed personality was actually scripted.
  • Walking Spoiler: It hard to talk about her without revealing the fact that she is a Decoy Protagonist.
  • Weakness Turns Her On: In her Love Hotel event, she says that Shuichi's shyness is something she finds attractive. Incidentally, she's also trying to get him to be more assertive in the same scene, and early in the game says he would be a "pretty cool guy if he were more assertive".

Miu Iruma

Ultimate Inventor

"Kyakyakyakyakya! Shine on, shine on, fuckin’ shine oooon!"

Voiced By: Haruka Ishida (Japanese), Wendee Lee (English)

An inventor on the cutting edge. She has a rather strange set of priorities—for instance, some of her favorite inventions are a series of devices that make it easier to eat or read while sleeping, while she considers her truly groundbreaking "eyedrop contact lenses" boring and sold the patent. She is incredibly brash and vulgar, but despite this, she will suddenly turn into a wimp if her facade is successfully attacked.

Wanting to get away from the chaos of the killing game she modifies the academy's New World Program to allow for the cast to instead live in Virtual Reality where the risk of death is minimal, though it is later revealed that she was intending to use the program to kill Kokichi Oma in an unsolvable murder. She is the victim of Chapter 4, strangled to death within Virtual Reality by Gonta Gokuhara, who was manipulated by Kokichi into thinking he was performing a mercy kill.
  • Aggressive Submissive: While she likes to act dominant and assertive, it really doesn't take much to make her revert to her true Shrinking Violet personality. That being said, when it comes to sex, or in Ki-bo case: performing maintenance on him in a rather suggestive manner, Miu would act assertive in a more flirty manner.
  • Anime Hair: It's pretty wild, all things considered, similar to tentacles or her robotic appendages.
  • Apologetic Attacker: In chapter 4, after Oma correctly deduces her intention of meeting him alone, she immediately breaks her lewd character from moments ago and profusely says sorry for what she would do to him, as she has no personal reason of killing him.
  • Aren't You Going to Ravish Me?: Her Love Hotel event is basically Miu trying to convince Shuichi to impregnate her so that they could have children, however he isn't very compliant with her request. It's left ambiguous if she was able succeed at the end the event.
  • Asshole Victim: Due to her being The Friend Nobody Likes as well as attempting to kill somebody and frame Kaito for the crime.
  • The Baby Trap: During her Love Hotel event, she admits that her desire to have a child is motivated by the fear of losing Shuichi and thinks that by having his child, she can prevent him from leaving.
  • Because You Were Nice to Me: She develops a crush on Shuichi during her Free Time Events because he shows kindness towards her.
    • This is also the reason for her affection towards Shuichi in her fantasy during the Love Hotel event.
  • Beneath the Mask: She is shy and weak beneath her rude, Large Ham persona.
  • Black Comedy: A veritable fountain of this.
  • Blue with Shock: Her corpse, which is an indication towards her cause of death.
  • Blush Sticker: In some of her sprites.
  • Brains and Bondage: She's a genius engineer, and her costume has a rather dominating vibe. She also seems to like wax play, if her character art is anything to go by.
  • Bunny-Ears Lawyer: She might be an oddball, but her talent as an inventor does come in handy, and her inventions helped the group on several occasions.
  • Buxom Is Better: At 99cm, Iruma's got the biggest bustlines of any character in the franchise (barring Sakura)and loves to use that fact as "proof of her superiority".
  • Casual Kink: If her outfit hasn't already tipped you off, Miu is a practitioner of BDSM and is secretly a masochist. Miu has given several indications that she is into bondage and wax play, and has an odd Fetish for machines, which largely contributes to her attraction towards Ki-bo.
  • Chekhov's Gag: Early on in Chapter 3, she performs maintenance on Ki-bo in a very...suggestive manner, as stated above. This proves to be extremely helpful during the third murder case, as she gives him a "light-up" mode that allows the others to investigate in a dark room, and she also gives him a camera function that allows him to take photos, which becomes crucial in outing Korekiyo as the culprit.
  • Childhood Friend Romance: Her fantasy in the Love Hotel event.
  • Color Motif: Pink.
  • Country Matters: Drops one during the aftermath of the second trial after Kirumi Tojo is revealed to be the killer.
  • Double Entendre: Loves to delivers these on a regular basis. Sometimes she forgoes the entendre.
  • Dies Wide Open: Her corpse, which is pretty rare among the people who die in Dangan Ronpa. This is usually reserved for those who die extra horrific deaths, and works against Miu's body not having any injuries.
  • Dirty Coward: A downplayed, hilarious version. When someone actually stands up to her bullying and verbal abuse, she begins to panic and shifts to her timid personality.
  • Ditzy Genius: Brilliant as she may be when it comes to machines and inventions, her intelligence seems to be entirely specialized in those fields. Aside from her eccentricities, in a trial she's more prone to making irrational leaps of logic than everyone else.
  • Expressive Hair: Her hair fluctuates from lively when excited or agitated, to wrinkly when frightened or surprised.
  • Exotic Eye Designs: Her irises as well as the rings around her pupils have an unusual, ragged pattern, making them appear slightly mechanical-looking and thus possibly referencing her talent.
  • Expy: To Kazuichi Soda. Both are mechanical experts with loud appearances and personalities who are much weaker than they might initially seem, though Iruma seems to be a bit better at keeping the mask up.
  • The Friend Nobody Likes: Even during her trial, several students admitted to the fact that they probably wouldn't have been friends with her, even if they hadn't met in a killing game. Kokichi Oma lampshades in Chapter Four by stating that other than himself, she is the least well-liked student. Ki-bo and Gonta (the latter being her amnesiac murderer) were the only students to truly disagree with Oma, stating that they thought she was a good person at heart, while some of the students only responded by saying that she didn't deserve to die. The students in question being Kaito and Tsumugi, the latter of which was likely lying about her true feelings.
    • Even in bonus modes, Junko Enoshima found it to very despairing to be compared to her and losing to her in a ping-pong tournament is also very despairing.
  • Gadgeteer Genius: Inventing is her talent. She has a backpack with robotic arms.
  • Hoist By Her Own Petard: She attempted to have Kokichi killed and frame Kaito for the crime. Unfortunately for her, Kokichi caught on to what she was doing and used Gonta's misguided desire to "save everyone" to his own ends. In addition, she made all of the objects unbreakable in the VR world. Because of that, she was unable to stop Gonta from strangling her with toilet paper.
  • Hidden Buxom: Up to Eleven as Miu is an already busty character who is actually hiding a much larger bust. Her character bio reveals that her bust size is 99cm, making her chest 6cm bigger than Akane's 93cm. This would mean Miu has the second largest breasts (with Sakura having the biggest bust) out of all the girls in the entire franchise.
  • Hidden Depths:
    • Her Love Hotel event shows some rather surprising and sad beliefs, and hints at abandonment issues—Miu offers her body to Shuichi because it's the only reward she can think of for his support, and begs him to let her have his kids, apparently believing that's the only way he won't leave her.
    • If her interaction with Monotaro is to be believed, she also genuinely likes children and has a desire to be a mom. Her apparent love for children is further supported by her character bio stating that she likes "Programs for Infants" and her Love Hotel event, stated above, shows that she does want to have children of her own. Doesn't mean she's not a bad influence, though.
  • Idiot Hair: She has two small ahoges.
  • If We Survive This: During her final free time, she promises to go on a date with Shuichi if they escape the facility.
  • Inferiority Superiority Complex: Miu normally acts like an Insufferable Genius, but this persona is only a mask to hide the fact that she is actually a timid girl that secretly has self-esteem issues, as shown with an increasing fear of being killed during later chapters and within her Love Hotel Event.
  • Insufferable Genius: She loves to brag about her talent and talks down to most of the other characters. Although, there is no denying that her skills as an inventor has come in handy on more than one occasion. Ironically, Miu is visibly uncomfortable with others degrading themselves for her assistance, as seen when Kaede and Shuichi got on their hands and knees and begged for her help.
  • Jerkass: Miu quickly establishes her character by insulting Kaede's breast size and weight. She spends most of the game insulting the others similarly while arrogantly touting her talent and intelligence as reasons she's better than them.
    • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Despite her vulgar and rude attitude, she can show some form of compassion when things become more serious, like with Kibo and her attempted murder.
  • Karmic Death: She attempted to kill Oma and frame Kaito for the murder. Ouma quickly finds out about this, and gets Gonta to kill her.
  • Know-Nothing Know-It-All: While she is a brilliant inventor, Miu is not nearly as skilled at detective work and often needs correction on her deductions.
  • Large Ham: She's boisterous, and likes talking big. On the other hand, give her any sign of aggression and she'll fold back.
  • Lovable Sex Maniac: While the "Lovable" part is quite debatable, she clearly acts in a perverted way when she is doing her Large Ham persona and when she is with Ki-bo. However, this is mostly an act; whenever people snap at her, she can't stand up to them at all.
  • Miss Fixit: As expected of the Ultimate Inventor. Miu is capable of performing maintenance on Ki-bo, and is often designated by group to fix up whatever electronics they come across.
  • My Eyes Are Up Here: Essentially what her first interaction with Shuichi sums up to. Miu being, well, Miu, goes as far as to call him a pervert for wearing a hat. Shuichi has none of that.
  • Only Friend: Ki-bo is her only real friend to the point where he and Gonta(her amnesiac murderer) are the only people who are genuinely saddened by her death.
  • Ore Onna: She uses the masculine, and incredibly arrogant, "ore-sama" pronoun when talking about herself.
  • Paper Tiger: Despite how vulgar and aggressive she acts towards her classmates, it doesn't take much effort to get her to shut up.
  • Pink Means Feminine: Subverted. While she is wearing pink, she uses the most masculine personal pronoun she can and likes to act anything but demure.
  • Proud Beauty: She declares herself a "peerless beauty," and constantly hurls insults at others, especially about their appearances.
  • Punny Name: Referring to her two ahoges and dirty sense of humor, her first name means "beautiful rabbit".
  • Ray Gun: One of inventions that can somehow teleport the underwear that someone is wearing and place them in another person's hand. Miu used this invention on herself to give Shuichi her panties during her final free time event.
  • Reluctant Fanservice Girl: At one moment, she decides to take her clothes off to stop Gonta for capturing her and she looks mortified about the amount of exposure she is doing.
  • Right for the Wrong Reasons: Early on in the Chapter 3 class trial, Miu accuses Korekiyo of murdering Angie, solely because the katana from his Anthropology Laboratory is the murder weapon.
  • Robosexual: Naturally, one would expect the Ulitmate Inventor to be fascinated with a Ridiculously Human Robot like Ki-bo. It's just that her interests are not exactly academic, much to Shuichi's chagrin...
  • Ship Tease: With Ki-bo. Miu makes no attempt to hide her "interest" towards him, and regularly performs maintenance on his body. The two are often seen together during the later chapters.
  • Sir Swears-a-Lot: She's got quite a dirty mouth when she's at her hammiest, regularly dropping the F-bomb every other line.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": A kanji variation. The Famitsu that revealed her name had it typoed as 未兎 instead of 美兎.
  • Statuesque Stunner: At 5' 8" She's the second tallest female in the game and is self-described as extremely beautiful.
  • Undignified Death: R.I.P. Miu, strangled by toilet paper.
  • Weakness Turns Her On: She has admitted that she find Ki-bo's shy personality around her to be attractive.
  • Woman Child: If her overall childish attitude wasn't enough to convince you, her report card says she loves watching TV shows meant for children.
  • Wrench Wench: She is a skilled enough mechanic to perform maintenance on Ki-bo.
  • Yandere: A mild example. In her last free time event with Shuichi, she tries to give him a pie with her hair in it. She also baked cookies with her fingernails and made chocolate with her blood as ingredients. She says that she wants the person she loves to eat a little piece of her.
  • Your Mind Makes It Real: Miu is killed in a Virtual Reality world, rendering her dead in real life.
  • Zettai Ryouiki Grade B.

     Tsumugi Shirogane 
Tsumugi Shirogane

Ultimate Cosplayer

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tsumigi_6.png

"I just like recreating the characters’ costumes, so I wish someone else would wear them for me…"

Voiced By: Mikako Komatsu (Japanese), Dorothy Elias Fahn (English)

A seamstress and cosplayer. She would prefer to use models rather than wear the outfits herself, but she mistrusts most cosplayers, believing they care more about standing out themselves instead of honoring the series the costume came from. Her work is so popular that she enjoys corporate sponsorship. She speaks rather politely most of the time but will get excited when one of her favorite series or cosplays comes up. She has a habit of becoming lost in thought, to the point of completely ignoring any attempts to grab her attention.

She is the true culprit of Chapter 1. After Kaede Akamatsu's death trap failed to kill Rantarou Amami, Tsumugi snuck up on Rantarou and bludgeoned him to death and made it look like Kaede's trap was successful. Tsumugi Shirogane is also the mastermind behind this Killing Game working for Team Danganronpa. Along with Shuichi, Maki, Himiko and Ki-bo, she abstains from voting in the final class trial, however since the audience of the killing game wanted Ki-bo to spare her classmates, she alone ends up being executed, crushed by a piece of debris along with Monokuma during the destruction of the academy.


  • The Bad Guy Wins: In the bad ending.
  • Battle Aura: During the latter half of the Chapter 6 class trial, Tsumugi summons a rotating halo of clothing and wigs that belong to previous Dangan Ronpa characters.
  • Big Bad: She's the "mastermind" of the killing game and the culprit who's murder truly started the game as well. However unlike past Masterminds, how much she's "controlling" this one can be up for debate as if what she claims is true she was only one of Team Danganronpa's various writers who was put into the game herself to get the plot rolling and far from the one responsible for the series both existing and going on as long as it is.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Starts off soft-spoken, empathetic and overall very kindhearted (Otaku tendencies aside). As the mastermind of the killing game, this is far from her true personality.
  • Changing Clothes Is a Free Action: After being revealed as Rantarou Amami's real killer and immediately before she reveals the killing game's Truman Show Plot, she starts switching between her normal outfit and costumes of the characters from the previous Dangan Ronpa games. Being the Ultimate Cosplayer, high-speed clothes changing is child's play to her.
  • Color Motif: Blue.
  • Consummate Liar: Prior to being exposed as the mastermind, she deceives everybody. The epilogue even incentives the player to question all the statements she made in the final trial.
  • Contrasting Sequel Antagonist: Like Junko Enoshima, she is willing to do whatever it takes to make her game work. However, Junko tries to remain a true source of information regarding the outside world, and she gives the characters despair through real revelations. At the very least, she usually uses Metaphorically True statements, and heavily relies on Exact Words with her statements. On the other hand, Tsumugi is a huge Consummate Liar as she is ready to tell outright lies in order for her plans to work. Examples of this would include having everybody believe that Kaede was Rantaro's "killer", manipulating everybody into falsely thinking that Kokichi was a Remnant of Despair, and the reveals at the final trial that may or may not be true.
  • Cosplay Otaku Girl: Her talent. She only likes to make the costumes, though, and would rather get others to wear them. Taken Up to Eleven when she cosplayed as every past character in the final class trial. She also explains that her true capabilities as the Ultimate Cosplayer aren't just dressing herself up in cosplay, but painting the entire world around her with cosplay, recreating a fictional world in reality.
  • Creepy Shadowed Undereyes: In most of her mastermind sprites, she has noticeable bags under her already unsettling glowing blue eyes.
  • Death from Above: How she dies. She and Monokuma get crushed by a falling rock.
  • Demoted to Dragon: Not long after the surviving cast found out that she is the "mastermind", she reveals that she is nothing more than The Dragon to Team Danganronpa, the true creators of the televised killing game.
  • Despair Event Horizon: At the end of the final trial, the audience possessing Ki-bo chooses not to vote for hope or despair to be executed. This means that Shuichi successfully convinced the outside world to let Dangan Ronpa die and end the suffering of the fictional characters that the show keeps creating. Tsumugi then declares that she would rather die than live in a world without Dangan Ronpa, and orders Ki-bo to destroy the prison academy, with everyone still inside.
  • Doing It for the Art: She would rather get people who truly love the series she's referencing to wear her costumes than people who want them for self-promotion, hence why she wears her own clothes despite disliking it and having a sponsorship. Invoked as she would die to give Danganronpa the ending it deserves.
  • Didn't See That Coming: She did not expect the events of Chapter Five to happen.
  • The Dragon: To Team Danganronpa.
  • Exotic Eye Designs: When Tsumugi gets outed as the mastermind, her irises start showing the symbols "V" and "3" on them. It's visible even as she cosplays as the previous Danganronpa characters.
  • Fangirl: Of the entire Danganronpa franchise, to the point where she would rather die than live in a world without Dangan Ronpa in it.
  • Flat Character: An intentional one for the first five chapters due to her being the mastermind.
  • Femme Fatale: Despite looking somewhat plain, Kaede describes her as "exuding pheromones". When she makes a cocktail for Shuichi in her personal bar, he notices that Tsumugi is discreetly seducing him through the clinking sound of the glass and the suddenly notable lack of her jacket covering her blouse. He ends up wondering just what kind of place she worked in.
  • The Generic Guy: Well, girl. She considers herself to be a rather plain individual, to the point that the word "plain" is something of a Verbal Tic for her. It's all an act.
  • Hero Killer: It's revealed in Chapter 6 that she was Rantaro's true killer, and was able to successful frame Kaede for the crime, resulting in the pianist's execution. This would make her the first known mastermind to have successfully killed the initial protagonist of their game.
  • I Am Not Pretty: Tsumugi constantly calls herself plain, simple, and unremarkable. Shuichi doesn't seem to agree with her idea of herself, and she's not any less unremarkable than the other characters.
  • Ironic Echo: When impersonating Chiaki Nanami, she uses the words the original used to pull Hajime out of his despair to mock the surviving characters about their talents being fabricated by the flashback lights to send them further into despair.
    Tsumugi!Chiaki: You know, like if you do it, it'll all work out.
  • Irony: She's a cosplayer, someone who loves fiction enough to try to bring fictional characters into the real world, who doesn't believe fictional characters have any power to influence the real world.
  • Jack the Ripoff: Refers to herself as copycat criminal. Details are up to the players' interpretation.
  • Kick the Dog: After revealing herself as the mastermind, she's constantly belittling, insulting, and mocking the others. Special mention goes to her offhandedly mentioning to Maki that she personally programmed her brainwashing to fall in love with Kaito.
  • Lampshade Hanging: She very much lampshaded that the HPA Saga was Hijacked By Junko as, during the final trial, she cosplayed as her making it seem like Junko returned as the mastermind once again.
  • Loony Fan: For the Danganronpa series. She loves the franchise so much that she is willing to commit some really immoral actions to keep the series going.
  • Master of Disguise: Her ability to assume someone else's identity surpasses that of the Ultimate Imposter from Super Dangan Ronpa 2! Unlike the Ultimate Imposter, Tsumugi can somehow change her body's shape and size and she can switch appearances in the blink of an eye. In return, she is incapable of disguising herself as a real person.
  • Meganekko: The only girl in V3 to wear glasses.
  • Mythology Gag: Like Junko before her, Tsumugi is crushed to death.
  • Nice Job Fixing It, Villain!: If she hadn't talked too much, the Killing Game Cycle would continue basically.
    • She also stated that all of the personalities in the game were modified by her. If what she said is true, then giving Kokichi Oma the personality of The Chessmaster came back to bite her really hard in the fifth trial.
  • Nice Girl: While an unashamed otaku, Shirogane's otherwise seems to a very compassionate and good-hearted young woman. Though this gets subverted later on once it was revealed that she was the mastermind.
  • Not Blood Siblings: Her love hotel hallucination is that she and Shuichi are step-siblings. She ends up not even bothering with the taboo.
  • Not Brainwashed: Whereas all the other students had their memories erased and their talents and personalities implanted, Tsumugi chose the mastermind role for herself, and kept her real memories and personality throughout the killing game.
  • Obfuscating Stupidity: She appears a bit ditzy at the class trials only to revealed that she is the mastermind and was orchestrating the killing game.
  • Occult Blue Eyes: Gets these after her reveal as the Big Bad. Specifically, she starts showing this at the same time as she starts cosplaying as previous Dangan Ronpa characters. They're very unsettling, to say the least.
  • Otaku: She is very passionate about otaku culture and constantly makes references to other anime, manga, and video games, much like Hifumi and Chiaki.
  • Out-Gambitted: All of her plans for Chapter Five got ruined thanks to Kokichi Oma.
  • Out of Focus: Up until The Reveal, she was given very little importance in comparison to a lot of other characters.
  • The Player Is the Most Important Resource: Based on what she said to Shuichi like a slap to his face.
  • Plot Allergy: Allergic to, weirdly enough, disguises - or dressing up as real people in general.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Butt-length.
  • Recurring Element: Much like other characters in the franchise, she is not happy with her talent, specifically Leon, who wanted to be a musician instead of a baseball player, and Chiaki, who found the talent of Ultimate Gamer to be limiting, since she could want to do other things that aren't related to gaming. In this case, due to her sponsors, she needs to wear the costumes, though she prefers to just make them.
  • Required Secondary Powers: An interesting case. Her official talent is cosplayer, so her skill set includes various things: make-up, seaming, hairstyle, etc., basically everything related to making the clothes, but considering that her real interest is making, rather than using the cosplays, her secondary skills are actually what should be her talent. Later subverted after being revealed as the mastermind when she freely begins using her talent for cosplay openly.
  • Rewatch Bonus: If one replays the game knowing her true nature, many of the seemingly innocuous things Tsugumi says and does are actually small hints that she is the mastermind of the killing game. Notably her comment to Miu that her glasses are actually hiding her true form, and she is notably the first character to point out how weird the dragon statue in the second floor is, since she knows it's actually guarding a hidden area of the school. She even foreshadows Gonta's Chapter 4 execution in the very first class trial, since as the mastermind she already knows what all the possible executions are. But perhaps the biggest one is her podium in the class trials—right in front of Monokuma's throne, just like the real Junko Enoshima in the first game.
  • Sarcastic Confession: In Chapter 2, Miu takes a jab at her plain appearance and personality, claiming that she wouldn't even be visible without her glasses. Tsumugi replies that the truth is the opposite; her glasses are the only thing hiding her fearsome true form. Come the final Class Trial, it turns out she wasn't kidding at all.
  • Serious Business: She is this about cosplay, her first voiced line has her telling that cosplays are not a disguise.
  • Shapeshifting: Her cosplay talent is so incredible that it essentially enables her to do this, although it isn't demonstrated until the final chapter where she is able to perfectly cosplay the characters from the previous two games, even ones with completely different body types and like Sakura, Fatogami, and Nekomaru.
  • Shapeshifter Default Form: Her initial appearance plus Occult Blue Eyes.
  • Shout-Out: Her official art has a wig behind her that mimics the hair of Hatsune Miku.
  • Suspiciously Similar Substitute: Invoked. Shirogane's role is to act as the customary "Junko" of this killing game. According to her, she is the 53rd "Junko" from a long line of people that were assigned to be the "mastermind" for the televised show.
  • Thanatos Gambit: At the end of the final trial, Tsumugi revealed that she didn't vote for either hope or despair to be executed. Because Ki-bo would vote for despair, she would vote for hope, and the other students weren't going to vote at all, the vote would end in a draw and be a worst-case scenario. It backfires when Ki-bo, still possessed by the Dangan Ronpa audience, doesn't vote either and it ends in a draw anyway.
  • Those Two Bad Guys: She and Ki-bo being the Evil Duo worked for Team Danganronpa. Her being the Mouth of Sauron, while Ki-bo being the Unwitting Pawn.
  • Token Evil Teammate: She's actually the mastermind, and the only one to be seen actively breaking their own rules and directly committing a murder in their own game, making her this for the female half of the cast.
  • Troll: At the final trial, she ended up cosplaying as Junko to make it seem she has returned as the mastermind once again.
  • Uncanny Valley Girl: She might seem like a Nice Girl that comes as rather plain and normal among her colorful classmates, but in reality she is game's mastermind and a Loony Fan of Danganronpa.
  • Unreliable Expositor: Like Junko before her, a number of things she reveals are called into question later on. Notably, the characters as they originally appear during the Prologue remembered being abducted into the killing game against their will, a clear contradiction to Shirogane's claim that they were all willing participants. Given her talent as the Ultimate Cosplayer, she would also be capable of faking a lot of the "evidence" she presented, such as the audition tapes.
  • Voluntary Shapeshifter: In Chapter 6, after being exposed as the mastermind she continuously swaps between costumes of former Danganronpa charactersnote , with her original appearance only returning to boast or when she gets serious. And it's implied even that is just another costume.
    Tsumugi: You can go ahead and forget about Tsumugi Shirogane. Cuz I'm just a character! Y'know, a lie!
  • Walking Spoiler: Several tropes relating to her have to deal with her being the mastermind of the killing game.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: She is a character with actual blue hair.

     Tenko Chabashira 
Tenko Chabashira

Ultimate Aikido Master

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tenko.png

"Tenko's master always says that you must use your power the right way!"

Voiced By: Sora Tokui

A user of "Neo Aikido", a school of martial arts developed by her and her master. She has a cheery, energetic demeanor, and tends to make kiai yells in normal conversation. She enjoys the company of other women, but despises men—not only will she reject compliments from men, she'll even reflexively throw any man who touches her.

She forms a strong friendship with Himiko early on in the game, which begins to fall apart when Himiko starts to find more comfort around Angie. When Angie forms a student council, Tenko reluctantly joins in the hopes of salvaging her waning friendship with Himiko. She is one of the victims of Chapter 3, stabbed in the neck while participating in Korekiyo Shinguji's necromantic ritual, which was a death trap in disguise.


  • Abusive Parents: Implied to have an abusive father with this comment:
    Tenko: "You're as annoying as my drunk father's complaints!"
  • Action Girl: She's one badass aikido master.
  • Ambiguously Bi: Tenko gets flustered when complimanted by Kaede and is clearly infatuated with Himiko, which Tenko herself outright confirms. That being said, there are plenty of Ship Tease moments. Additionally, despite her dislike of men, it does not necessarily mean she is not capable of being attracted to them: in her Love Hotel event, it shows she is not above allowing Shuichi to do what he wants with her, so she can develop feelings for a man that has gained her trust.
  • Anime Hair: Her twin tails are in some sort of loop.
  • Aren't You Going to Ravish Me?: During her Love Hotel event, Tenko tries to get Shuichi to "do whatever he wants to her", and is frustrated when he states that he doesn't want to do anything to her. Like with Miu, it's left ambiguous if Tenko was able to convince him to comply with her request at the end of the event.
  • Bare Your Midriff: A mild case; her shirt doesn't go all the way to her skirt, leaving just enough space to see her bellybutton.
  • Beauty Mark: On the lower corner of her mouth.
  • Best Her to Bed Her: Her Love Hotel fantasy, which goes both ways. If Shuichi defeats her, he can do whatever he wants to her, and the inverse applies if Tenko beats him. The fantasy begins after her defeat, and she's frustrated with Shuichi's unwillingness to do anything with her.
  • Big Ol' Eyebrows: Has noticeably thicker eyebrows than most of the other characters in the game.
  • Boobs of Steel: She is an aikido master that has the third largest chest measurement out of the girls at 88cm (only losing out to Miu's 99cm and Kaede's 90cm), making her bust size roughly the same as Asahina's.
  • Breaking Old Trends: Tenko would really like to be the "female friends who quickly form a powerful bond over the course of the game" character set with Himiko, like Aoi and Sakura or Mahiru and Saionji from previous games, but Himiko's having none of it. Even though Tenko's last words and death do motivate Himiko to express herself more and try harder the two still weren't nearly as close as the previous examples making this "relationship" seem far more off balanced.
  • Declaration of Protection: Repeatedly declares this for Himiko. Tragically, she technically succeeds, as her taking Himiko's place in the ritual after Angie dies ends up saving Himiko's life at the cost of her own. Himiko even survives the killing game.
  • Defrosting Ice Queen: Progressively warms up to Shuichi in her Free Time Events as she assumes he is interested in learning Neo Aikido, and by the end of her Free Time Events, consider her a "brother-in-arms". She still refuses to shake his hand though.
  • Driven to Suicide: Kokichi Oma brings up the possibility of this happening to Tenko during the third trial. It isn't her cause of death, though.
  • Does Not Like Men: Her defining quirk. She even refers to the boys as 男死 (the word "boys", but with the kanji for "child" replaced for the kanji for "death")note . Her Free Time Events make her come to terms with the fact that good males do exist, although she would still only trust those that devote themselves to Neo-Aikido.
  • Emotional Bruiser: She's a martial artist who is easily driven to tears and feeling remorse. She's one of the students who jumped in to stop the Monokuma Cubs from dragging Kaede to her execution. She sympathizes easily with suspects, victims and culprits alike, which puts her in an interesting situation where she's saddened by Ryoma's death despite him being a guy, so staunchly believes that Himiko is not the killer that she becomes one of the case's biggest oppositions, and encourages Kirumi to run away from her punishment because she was swayed by her words.
  • Genki Girl: She has an upbeat demeanor most of the time and a lot of energetic-looking sprites. When she was a child, she was so hyperactive and her tantrums were so severe that her parents ended up moving her into a Buddhist temple; they were afraid that she wouldn't be able to interact with people normally if she didn't learn to calm her mind.
  • Hair Decorations: Taken Up to Eleven, she wears a headband, a big shuriken shaped ribbon on the back of her head and another two bows on her twin tails.
  • Irony:
    • She makes a show of hating men and suspecting them of all kinds of wrongdoing, but the only murders she lives through have female perpetrators (and for the first two chapters, male victims); on top of that, her eventual killer has a female Split Personality, and wants to send only female friends to his sister's ghost. And even the mastermind of the killing game is a woman as well.
    • In addition, when she was younger, she went on to live in a Buddhist temple. Ironically, she is the most vocally atheistic character in the game.
  • Lights Off, Somebody Dies: She is killed in the company of multiple people while they are all participating in an occult ritual.
  • Locked Room Mystery: She is somehow stabbed to death while crouching down inside a cage. The culprit tampered with the floorboards and used the one Tenko was sitting on as a see-saw to launch her upwards into the blade that was planted in the cage.
  • Luminescent Blush: When Kaede compliments her cuteness, Tenko blushes really hard.
  • Meaningful Name: Tenko can be read as "rolling child", referring to her talent, as Aikido includes various rolling techniques.
    • "Chabashira" is a Japanese superstition that says if you find an stalk standing upright on your teacup, you will have luck if you take it off and don't let anyone know you have it. Our Chabashira, however, is completely against hiding her expression and dies right after stating it.
  • Nice Girl: One of the most good-hearted and empathetic of students, with even her distaste for men not getting in the way of that.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Her hair reaches down to her thighs. While she ties it like DNA helixes.
  • Recurring Element: Actually continues the tradition of Ishimaru and Saionji from the previous two games, being a character who's shaken by a previous death and seems to be headed for character development, but is killed off in Chapter 3. She's even the second to have her body discovered, like the aforementioned two (though in this case, it's clear that Tenko died second).
  • Reverse Mole: Downplayed. The reason she joins Angie's cult in Chapter 3 is because she is worried about Himiko's state of mind. She never actually buys into the religion of Atua. Angie finds out after Tenko tries to convince her to not resurrect the dead using the Necronomicon, and Angie's only response is to express mild regret and hope that Tenko reconsiders her loyalty.
  • Romantic Two-Girl Friendship: Played with but subverted. Tenko tries to invoke this with Himiko and also makes it rather clear that her interest here isn't entirely platonic, but despite her best efforts Himiko remains largely indifferent towards her attempts at friendship and romantic advances, and prefers the company of Angie instead. While after Tenko's death Himiko regrets ignoring her "friend" and admits she didn't give her the appreciation she deserved, during the trial to find her killer both Kokichi and Korekiyo still point out she hardly seemed to even like Tenko before this happened.
  • Super Gullible: She will believe anything that was said by the person who taught her Neo Aikido, such as that her Neo-Aikido powers can get weakened by getting too excited for holidays, eating more than three sweets per day, or touching men (which ended up contributing to her disdain for men).
  • Third-Person Person: In the Japanese version she speaks in this way, denoting a childish/playful side.
  • Weak, but Skilled: Downplayed. While there is no denying that Tenko is an impressive fighter, she admits in Chapter 2, when Gonta was rounding up most of the students, that if she were to try to actually fight him, Gonta would definitely win due to his sheer strength and size.

     Kirumi Tojo 
Kirumi Tojo

Ultimate Maid

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tojo.png

"I have even been asked to help destroy the state, but since that is obviously impossible, I refused."

Voiced By: Kikuko Inoue (Japanese), Kira Buckland (English)

A girl with a sharp mind and an athletic body. Her day job is as a maid, but she is effective in a variety of roles, such as personal security. She was even apparently approached for a job that would "destroy a nation". Her personal motto is "duty before self", something that she continues to adhere to even in the prison school. She takes care of housekeeping and cooking for the other students.

It's revealed that her position as Ultimate Maid had the government scout her out and that she is actually the country's Prime Minister. She is the culprit of Chapter 2, drowning a suicidal Ryoma Hoshi and planting his corpse so it would be discovered in the middle of Himiko Yumeno's magic show.
  • The Ace: Has various skills besides being a maid such as first-aid care, though all of them come with or from her job as a maid. She is stated to be able to finish any work.
  • Almighty Janitor: Related to the above as we do mean any work; she was so good at being the assistant to the prime minister that she ended up becoming the actual prime minister.
  • Arachnid Appearance and Attire: She's missing the creepy aspect, but her clothing features a spiderweb motif, and she's definitely got the old-fashioned costume and stoicism down. Her execution is also based on the Japanese morality tale "The Spider's Thread", where one sinner seeks his own salvation at the cost of others.
  • Clothing Damage: In addition to the battle segment against her, the execution afterward involves a heavy amount of this.
  • Color Motif: Grey.
  • Contrasting Sequel Antagonist: As much as the murderers are "antagonists" anyway. In comparison to the previous Chapter Two killers, she makes no attempt to Face Death with Dignity (seeming to go so far as to vote for Shuichi out of spite when even other killers in this game will concede and keep the vote unanimous), and actually attempts to escape her execution. And for further contrast while Peko and Mondo ended up killing somebody in the heat of a moment, Kirumi specifically planned her murder attempt in an attempt to win for herself.
  • Cruel and Unusual Death: Cornered by a lynch mob accusing her of being a failure, Kirumi is given a long vine covered in thorns that leads to an opening in the ceiling and salvation. Determined to escape, she climbs the vine, injuring her hands repeatedly on the many thorns. As she climbs higher, a gauntlet of automated saw blades assaults her, cutting and flaying her as she continues to ascend. Covered in injuries, Kirumi finally reaches the top of the vine, only to find her hole to freedom is fake. The vine breaks, sending her plummeting to her death, whereupon she lands on top of Monosuke, obliterating him. Kirumi dies on impact, with the knowledge that she failed as a prime minister and that she can't save her people from an unknown catastrophe.
  • Determinator: She puts up a lot of resistance against people's accusations and exploits many tactics, including guilt-tripping everyone with Kaede's death and revealing her identity as the acting prime minister to show the difference of her life's worth against everyone else's, to escape her punishment. She's the first culprit in the series that tries to run away from her executionnote  and during her execution keeps on trying to escape despite her hands and body getting cut throughout the entire climb. Naturally, Monokuma uses Kirumi's determination against her.
  • Defiant to the End: She never ceases her resistance against everyone's accusations. After the trial has ended, she votes for Saihara out of spite and tries to run away from her execution.
  • Elegant Gothic Lolita: Naturally, due to wearing classic Victorian-era maid attire to go with her position as a maid.
  • Everyone Has Standards: She was asked to help destroy the government, but she refused. Though that was because she was secretly the government.
  • Fan Disservice: Gets most of her clothes torn off by saw blades during her execution, giving us a lovely view of her bra, legs, and viciously cut up skin.
  • Foreshadowing:
    • Although during the battle segment in the second trial her Wardrobe Malfunction is much worse and her injuries are much more minor than during her execution, the Fanservice moment mentioned above may be a foreshadowing of the Fan Disservice moment also mentioned above.
    • The game stated the government had 16 prisoners be sent to the school by the government yet Kirumi ended up being a prime minister. This could be a hint towards how the students are not exactly prisoners per say.
  • Hair Decorations: A headband similar to a maid's.
  • Hope Spot: Her execution. She gets past all of the death traps and reaches a hole to freedom... only to find the hole is just a crude sky drawing. The vine she was so desperately climbing breaks, sending her plummeting to her death.
  • Humble Hero: Her introduction in the demo has Makoto praising her skills and stating that she can complete any task, but Kirumi states that "any task" is an overstatement.
  • Hypercompetent Sidekick: Prior the killing game, she was hired by the prime minister to be his assistant. She's so competent, she becomes the acting prime minister.
  • Meido: No big duh.
  • Names to Run Away from Really Fast: Kirumi can be read as "Slashing Beauty" or "Beheading Beauty", and she shares her family name with the World War II-era Japanese prime minister Hideki Tojo, who was a convicted war criminal.
  • Neat Freak: Her report card states that she likes cleaning.
  • Ninja Maid: She was mentioned to be hired as a bodyguard for a head of a nation, while she states she was just a maid, there are implications she is a capable fighter and could do everything a bodyguard does. But from her Theory Armament's artwork, she's less of a ninja and more of a knight.
  • Not So Stoic: After Shuuichi fingers her as Ryoma's killer. Her facial expressions and voice lines get far more intense.
    "While I do understand where you are coming from, I assure you this is just a part of your petty imagination! An empty theory created from nihilism!"
  • Peek-a-Bangs: Her left eye is always covered by her hair.
  • Proper Tights with a Skirt: Fitting with her talent.
  • Recurring Element: Traditionally from the previous games, she's the third Second Chapter murderer to have The Reveal in the class trial. In her case, being a Prime Minister in her country.
  • The Reliable One: She's shown to cater to everyone's menial chores, from cleaning rooms to cooking dinner to aiding personal research. This also applies to her position as the acting prime minister to her country...so much so that she's willing to murder someone to check on their well-being.
  • Required Secondary Powers: She has a set of other skills non-related to being a maid, but they are all used to achieve finishing any task she is given as a maid. Up to and including running a country.
  • Screw This, I'm Out of Here!: Attempts this when faced with execution. She doesn't get far.
  • Sickening "Crunch!": At the end of her execution, she falls to the ground and lands on top of Monosuke with a sickening crunch.
  • Sore Loser: First of all, during her trial, she voted for Saihara out of spite. She also attempted to sway other people to have them volunteer to be executed in her place though Kaito and Kokichi caught on to what she was doing. She was also the only killer to attempt to run away from their execution.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Toujou, Tōjō, or Tojo.
  • Statuesque Stunner: At 176cm, she's the tallest female character in the game.
  • Subordinate Excuse: Her Love Hotel scene involves being Shuichi's personal maid/bodyguard, and she feels like she's a burden to him because she believes her romantic feelings are only holding him back.
  • Sympathetic Murderer: She is a "civil servant" (read: prime minister) fighting against a great calamity, which she uses to justify her reason to be let off the guilty verdict. She practically exploits this trope and sways the others' opinion so much that despite Kaito and Oma calling her out on her The Needs of the Many utilitarianism, several of the students are still volunteering to be executed in her stead. Furthermore, many students encouraged her as she attempted to escape execution, suggesting they could fully understand her feelings over the matter.
  • Team Mom: See The Reliable One. Her job as a maid makes her come off as a sort of motherly figure to the group. Early on in Chapter 2, Kokichi asks her to "become his mom", with Gonta doing the same seconds after.
    • However, her Free Time Events reveals she dislikes when people of the same age call her a mother.
  • The Dog Was the Mastermind: Not of the game itself, but few people would think that a high school maid is the de factor prime minister of Japan.
  • Undignified Death: She throws all dignity out the window in her desperate attempt to escape execution, as Shuichi notes.
  • Was It All a Lie?: Angie and Kokichi had this reaction when she revealed to be Ryoma's killer.
    Angie: "Hey~, hey~, where did the lie start~? You always taking care of us was a lie to deceive us?"
    Kokichi: "Then, you were not my mom!?"
  • Weaksauce Weakness: Despite her unbelievable levels of competence in...pretty much everything, she has a lot of trouble cooking with the konjac root.
  • Workaholic: Her profile implies that she still wants to act as a maid during their time in the Gifted Inmates Academy and that she hates standing by idly.
  • Younger Than They Look: The combination of her height, stern face, hairstyle, and voice make her appear more like a young adult than a teenager, but naturally she's supposed to be the same age as the other students (16-18).

     Maki Harukawa 
Maki Harukawa

Ultimate Child Caregiver (Ultimate Assassin)

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/maki_2_0.png

"Leave me out of it."

Voiced By: Maaya Sakamoto (Japanesse), Erica Mendez (English)

A girl who grew up in an orphanage. She was made to help out while living there, and despite not being particularly good at the work and hating children, apparently the children liked her so much that she earned the title Ultimate Caregiver. She has an uncooperative attitude and speaks from the heart.

In reality, she is the Ultimate Assassin. She keeps her true talent hidden until the end of Chapter 2 when Kokichi Oma reveals it to everyone. After this Kaito encourages her to spend more time with him and Shuichi, turning the group into a Power Trio. As a result, she ends up becoming the second deuteragonist of the game and helps Shuichi infrequently with investigating.

After abstaining from voting in the final class trial along with Shuichi, Himiko, Tsumugi, and Ki-bo, she is spared from Ki-bo's sacrificial destruction of the academy and goes on to survive the killing game.
  • Affectionate Nickname: Momota calls her "Harumaki".
    • Localized as "Maki Roll" in English.
  • Aloof Dark-Haired Girl: She's distant towards the others and is someone who self-admittedly doesn't get along well with other people. Her first line in one of the trailers (see her quote above) reinforces this trope further.
  • And Now for Someone Completely Different: She becomes playable at the final class trial.
  • Anti-Hero: She is part of the main Power Trio of this game, but don't forget the fact that she is also an assassin.
  • Beauty Mark: Has one under her left eye.
  • Berserk Button: Unless you are someone she's on good terms with, do not call her "Maki Roll".
  • Brutal Honesty: She's the type to say things clearly and without beating around the bush.
  • Catch-Phrase: "Do you want to die?"
  • Character Development: She introduces herself as someone who does not get along with people and would rather avoid them. However, over time, she builds a friendship with Kaito and Shuichi and even begs Kaito to stop when he announces himself as Kokichi's killer and was about to be executed.
  • Child Hater: Despite her initial talent, she claims to hate children and only took care of them because she was told to while growing up in an orphanage. Momota believes this not to be the case.
  • Childhood Friend Romance: One of the two who has this as their Love Hotel fantasy, the other being Miu.
  • Color Motif: Red.
  • Death Glare: She's prone to giving these every time she's pressured, which is a lot.
  • Defrosting Ice Queen: Much like Fuyuhiko from Danganronpa 2 she is initially withdrawn, often threatening and rejects anyone's approaches, but after the reveal of her being the Ultimate Assassin and being encouraged by Kaito to train with him and Shuichi, she warms up to become more passive. Due to the experiences with them both, she ends up falling in love with Kaito.
  • Deuteragonist: After forming a Power Trio with Shuichi and fellow deuteragonist Kaito. Maki would take on Kaito's role as Shuichi's "assistant" whenever Kaito is indisposed, namely whenever Kaito's chronic illness gets too severe.
  • The Determinator: Her character introduction states her to be rather resolute.
  • Embarrassing Nickname: She doesn't like being referred to as "Maki Roll". However, later on, as she grows used to it, this becomes more Friendly Address Privileges.
  • Friend to All Children: Her talent. She is naturally that, even though she has No Social Skills and she is actually a Child Hater, kids actually seem to completely adore her. Though this gets subverted later on once her true talent is revealed.
  • Friendly Address Privileges: While she warms up to Kaito's affectionate nickname "Maki Roll" and realizes she loves the fact that he calls her that, she responds with extreme prejudice when Kokichi uses it.
  • Foreshadowing: There are lots of hints towards her true talent.
    • She pretty much forbids anybody from entering her lab. The reason for that is because it would have given away her true talent.
    • Kaito puts her in the strategy meeting in the first chapter simply because he feels like she is the type of person that can fight. An assassin seems way more capable of fighting than a caretaker.
    • Also from the first chapter, Kokichi stated that Maki seems like the type of person who's killed someone.
  • Hair Color Dissonance: Maki's hair is fairly consistently brown, but the CGs and promotional artwork have some variation. Most noticeable is the image of her helping Kaito assemble a crossbow, where her hair appears to be a dark blue-green.
  • Hair Decorations: Has a hairclip shaped like an infinity symbol, as well as red hair scrunchies that keep her long pigtails in place.
  • I Never Said It Was Poison: A non-killer example. If Shuichi uses one of his lie bullets in Chapter Five, she states that the Exisal's hatch has an electric lock in it in which that is information that only Shuichi could have known about causing him to believe that Maki was lying about something.
  • Irony: As Maki herself lampshades, she's the Ultimate Caregiver and children love her, but she hates children. Fitting, as that isn't her real talent. In a more legitimate example of irony, she's the Ultimate Assassin but does not kill anyone in the game.
  • Jerkass: Maki can be quite cold with others without provocation, and is often uncooperative. She gets better later on.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Eventually comes to be this due to her friendship with Kaito and Shuichi.
  • Katanas Are Just Better: Parodied. She once carried around a katana in a prop case while hunting down a mark that was known for being an otaku, but while searching for him, she got caught up in an anime convention because she looked just like a cosplayer. Ever since this mishap, Maki refuses to use swords for assassination missions.
  • Kick the Dog: Ryoma tried to find a reason for him to keep surviving, so he searched for Maki in an attempt to see whether he still has someone waiting for him, only to find her true identity as the Ultimate Assassin. According to Oma's interpretation, she then showed him his motive video, which was empty, because she wanted the already suicidal Ryoma to die since he found out her true occupation.
  • Love Hurts: While Kaito is facing execution in the fifth trial, she tearfully admits to him that throughout the course of the game she ended up falling in love with him. This comes back to bite even harder in the final trial when Tsumugi reveals to her that those emotions were intentionally implanted to help boost the show's ratings. She also shows Kaito's audition video from before everyone was brainwashed, revealing that Kaito was actually a Jerkass who joined the Killing Game because he wanted to kill people for fame and money.
  • Love Interest: For Kaito.
  • Metaphorically True: She is an Ultimate and did have to take care of children while she was in the orphanage, making her a caregiver. However, she was not actually the Ultimate Caregiver.
  • Mythology Gag: She looks suspiciously similar to one of Komaru's Beta designs.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: She's this when she shot the second poisoned arrow and made Kaito take the hit to prevent her from getting executed.
  • Names to Run Away from Really Fast: Maki is written with kanji meaning "demon princess".
  • Nice Job Fixing It, Villain!: Given her early status as one of the more antagonistic classmates. Her giving Ryoma his empty video led Kokichi to assume she did it because Ryoma knew too much, be suspicious of her, and then manage to have her talent of "Ultimate Assassin" be outed to everybody.
  • No Social Skills: She is not very sociable and doesn't really like people in general. Children still seem to like her though.
  • Poison-and-Cure Gambit: During Chapter 5, Maki steals a slow-acting poison from Shuichi's Study Center and uses it on Kokichi to interrogate him after he claims to be the mastermind. She later admits that she never intended to give him an antidote. However, when she accidentally poisons Kaito, she is forced to run away from the crime scene to fetch it.
  • Professional Killer: Her true talent, to the point she can act somewhat like The Coroner during investigations due to her familiarity with various causes of death.
  • Rapunzel Hair: To an insane degree. Tied up, her hair nearly reaches the ground.
  • Recurring Element: A character with a hidden ultimate talent involving murder, like Toko Fukawa/Genocide Jill (Ultimate Writing Prodigy & Ultimate Murderous Fiend) and Peko Pekoyama (Ultimate Swordswoman, and a trained mafia hitman). Her identity is even revealed during Chapter 2, like the others, but after the trial, unlike the others.
  • Red and Black and Evil All Over: Downplayed. She's an assassin who has killed more people than she can count, but she isn't quite devoid of empathy and she makes it out of the killing game with her head on her shoulders.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: She is an assassin with red eyes.
  • Sailor Fuku: She wears a red uniform with a yellow tie and a black skirt.
  • The Stoic: Her emotional range seems to be rather limited, with the most being contained annoyance, up until her breakdown at the end of the fifth trial. Might have something to do with being the Ultimate Assassin.
  • Switching P.O.V.: Maki is given a red UI with a design of a rose, and she becomes a playable character for one segment of the final trial.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: As part of her Character Development.
  • Violently Protective Girlfriend: Harm Kaito and heaven help you.
  • Walking Spoiler: To an extent. Her role in the story changes once her true talent is revealed and a large part of her backstory has to deal with that said talent.
  • When She Smiles: Maki only has two sprites where she's smiling. They're never seen throughout the first half of the game, and she only starts smiling infrequently after she's developed her friendship with Kaito and Shuichi.
  • Zettai Ryouiki: With her twin tails and cold personality, Grade S.

Himiko Yumeno

Ultimate Magician

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/himiko_6.png

“Should I just beat you to death with my deadly magic?"

Voiced By: Aimi Tanaka (Japanesse), Christine Marie Cabanos (English)

The Ultimate Magician, but she would prefer to call herself the Ultimate Spellcaster. She claims to be the youngest person to win Magician of the Year, a prestigious award given out by the magician society Magician's Castle. However, since her tricks are actual magic (according to her, at least), she alleges that she has been prevented from claiming the award because of a conspiracy to hide the existence of magic. She also claims to be flooded with booking requests from all over the world. Despite being at the top of her field, she is lazy to a fault.

While emotionally reserved, after Tenko's death, Himiko vows to honor Tenko's wish for her to be more open emotionally. In the final class trial she abstains from voting along with Shuichi, Maki, Tsumugi and Ki-bo. She is spared from Ki-bo's sacrificial destruction of the academy and goes on to survive the killing game.


  • A-Cup Angst: She seems to be self-conscious about her lack of bust. Miu and Kokichi use this to insult her, something she doesn't take well at all.
  • Adorkable: Her laziness, outdated way of speaking and her other character quirks combined give her a unique cuteness when compared to the other characters.
  • Always Someone Better: She never liked to admit how she eventually upstaged her master, culminating with her fixing a magic (trick) that he fumbled up onstage and forced him to disappear out of shame.
  • Ambiguous Disorder: She has difficulty communicating her feelings to others, she's completely obsessed with one thing - her magic - and generally acts very spaced out, not really emoting to any of the events that occur around the start of the game. She also acts like a little kid when she's supposed to be a high schooler, is incompetent at day-to-day duties (she states that she can't even tell rice from termites), and she seems to have a lot of difficulties connecting with someone using something not connected to magic in some way.
  • And Now for Someone Completely Different: She becomes briefly playable at the final class trial.
  • Antiquated Linguistics: A very pompous variant of it, reminiscent of the speech pattern of an old mage from a JRPG.
  • Berserk Button:
  • Blush Sticker: Has perpetually rosy cheeks.
  • Break the Cutie: The poor girl does not take the deaths around her well, especially Angie's, Tenko's, and Gonta's.
  • Brilliant, but Lazy: She's an Ultimate, but she complains about not having enough MP and that murder would be too tiresome to commit. Even relaxing is too taxing for her laziness. At least before her Character Development.
  • Butt-Monkey: In every chapter aside from the first chapter and the last chapter, she's accused of murdering someone (though the accusation in the fourth chapter came across as Blatant Lies).
  • Cat Smile: Showcased in one of her sprites and the official art.
  • Character Development: Starting around the end of Chapter Three, she stops hiding her emotions, becomes more outspoken and optimistic, and doesn't call things tiresome.
  • Conspiracy Theorist: She believes there is a conspiracy to hide the existence of magic from the public.
  • Clear My Name: She happened to be accused as a murderer twice in the game, being Chapter 2 and Chapter 3's prime suspect for the murders of Ryoma Hoshi and Tenko Chabashira.
  • Cute Witch: A Token Mini-Moe that dress like a witch.
  • Damsel out of Distress: She got trapped in hidden room in the library by the rubble in the last chapter. However, she found that the secret passageway in that room, and she manages to find her own way out.
  • Doing In the Wizard: She is the first suspect of Chapter 2's class trial, and removing the suspicion from her involves everyone else figuring out how she vanished from the water tank in her magic show. Much to Himiko's frustration, as she continually insists that she is using real magic, not tricks.
  • Familiar: Refers to the pigeons and tiger from her shows as so and she also imagines that Shuichi is a wolf given human form by her magic while in the love hotel.
  • Gameplay and Story Segregation: After Chapter Four, Himiko ended stating that she will no longer call things tiresome. However, Himiko's first three free time events with Shuichi ended up having her call things tiresome and Shuichi will still be able to access those free time events after Chapter Four. Slightly justified by the fact that it would've been a huge case of Guide Dang It! if Shuichi was unable to access those free time events after Chapter Four.
  • Hair Decorations: A blue hairclip to help keep her hair held back.
  • Inferiority Superiority Complex: Her 5th free time event hinted that she has this as she has a hard time talking about how she ended up overcoming her master and being better at magic than they are where everybody wanted to see her at magic shows instead of her master.
  • Insistent Terminology: She prefers to be called a mage rather than a magician.
  • Japanese Pronouns: Uses Uchi on herself.
  • LARP: It appears to be what she's into.
  • Magic A Is Magic A: She claims that magic is not universal, but instead has very specific uses. For example, she can't make people fly up and down, but she can guess cards and coins chosen by the audience and make doves appear afterward. If she's being serious, she can cut a human being in half.
  • Magical Girl: What her motif and personality is based around.
  • Magician Detective: Notably Averted despite the series shes' in; she tends to let the others do most of the logic work in the trials and her insistence that her magic is real keeps her from revealing too many tricks without heavy prompting.
  • Magicians Are Wizards: Claims that her performances are real magic rather than parlor tricks, though the only one seen does have a simple explanation behind it rather than a case of Maybe Magic, Maybe Mundane.
  • Nice Hat: Her most notable trait is her big black "witch hat".
  • Not So Stoic: She doesn't express her feelings much because it was "too tiresome" to even do it at first. But just before Chapter 3 ended, Kokichi gave her a What the Hell, Hero? moment because she didn't actually express her emotions in the trial. She remembers Tenko's advice that it's not shameful to express them, and she finally shows her emotions by crying.
  • Older Than She Looks: Yes, she is actually a high schooler.
  • Parental Abandonment: Not from her actual parents, but from the strong parental figure her master was.
  • Proper Tights with a Skirt: Wears tights with her school uniform.
  • Recurring Element: The Token Mini-Moe similar to Chihiro and Hiyoko before her. Unlike them, however, she manages to survive the game.
  • Red and Black and Evil All Over: Inverted. She wears black clothes, has a black cape with red lining, and has red hair, but is an Adorkable Cute Witch who survives the killing game.
  • Shout-Out: Considering her witch motif, her given name references either the semi-legendary Himiko, a magic-using queen of ancient Japan or Himitsu no Akko-chan, while her surname matches up with one of the most famous anime witches, Sally Yumeno.
  • The Slacker: Before her Character Development, she was very lazy to say the least.
  • Stage Magician: Her talent and her appearance in official artwork.
  • Stepford Smiler: Prior to her Character Development, she constantly bottled up her emotions and didn't act extremely sad for the deaths of Angie and Tenko during their trial. It wasn't until Kokichi gives a What the Hell, Hero? moment, and Himiko remembers Tenko's advice that it's not shameful to express them, that she finally shows Tears of Remorse.
  • Switching P.O.V.: Shuichi's UI passes on to Himiko's point of view, receiving her UI being Neon Blue with a magic circle design. Not only that, she's playable for one segment of the Final Trial.
  • Teens Are Short: She's the shortest female character in the game.
  • Token Mini-Moe: She has a quite short stature and a round face, giving her a young appearance a lot like Chihiro and Saionji from the previous Dangan Ronpa games. However unlike both of them she manages to survive this game.
  • Trauma Conga Line: Was "sent" to Gifted Inmates Academy, got her memories altered, was accused as Ryoma's killer in Chapter 2, found Angie and Tenko (the two students she was closest with) dead, witnessed Gonta's execution, and then realised that she was in a reality killing game show that she signed up for. All in the days of suffering in Danganronpa, and she was able to survive.
  • Undying Loyalty: She will defend the idea that her master is the best, even if she has to undermine her own merits. She also completely denies the possibility her master can commit ordinary failures and believes she was abandoned for her own sake.
  • Verbal Tic: "Nyeh..."

     Angie Yonaga 
Angie Yonaga

Ultimate Artist

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/angie.png

"But Angie only lends her body. The one really doing it is Atua. Nyahahahaha! Divine, right?"

Voiced By: Minori Suzuki

An accomplished artist and a foreigner from an island nation. Angie considers herself a conduit of the god of her island, Atua, believing him to always be by her side. She claims that her art is not created by her, but by her god simply using her body. The particulars of Angie's country are unclear; Angie seems to have a fascination in blood sacrifice, for instance. Despite the creepy details, Angie is rather cheerful and energetic.

After the deaths of Ryoma and Kirumi in Chapter 2, Angie forms and leads a student council to regulate everyone's day-to-day behavior in order to prevent anyone from killing or looking for an escape. Her influence ends up creating a sharp divide between the entire class and puts a strain on Himiko and Tenko's friendship. She is one of the victims of Chapter 3. Angie is knocked unconscious and stabbed in the neck by Korekiyo Shinguji after walking in on him setting up a death trap.

  • Affably Evil: While her religious beliefs made a Token Evil Teammate, she has some Pet the Dog moments and even made statues of the deceased students in Chapter Three.
  • Ambiguously Brown: Her dark skin, non-Japanese name, and her official art (see above) imply that she is Polynesian. The English translation adds more evidence by naming her god Atua, a Polynesian term. Her ethnicity is never actually stated outright, but Saihara does point out her foreign-sounding name.
  • Anti-Villain: A Type III. She comforts those traumatized by the deaths by saying that everyone can start living in harmony inside their confinement. This causes tension between those who agree with her, who would enforce complete peace despite the 48 hours time limit total-execution, and those who aren't. The tension makes the members of the student council (her cult) hostile toward Shuichi during Free Time.
  • Blush Sticker: Seems to have perpetually rosy cheeks.
  • Breaking Old Trends: While the previous "dark skinned odd high energy girl" characters Aoi and Akane managed to survive their respective killing games, Angie is killed off in Chapter 3.
  • Brown Note: Her third free time event has her knock Shuichi out cold by showing him one of her paintings. The ones that can withstand it are "chosen" by Atua.
  • Cassandra Truth: During the Chapter 1 class trial, she speaks on behalf of her god and says that the culprit is the mastermind and that they avoided being caught on camera entering the library because they were hiding behind the Bookcase Passage. This hypothesis is dismissed because everyone was recorded moving into the library immediately after the murder, and Shuichi applied dust to the card reader that would get knocked off if it was used. During Chapter 6, it's revealed that her hypothesis was spot on. Nobody took into account whether there was another hidden door that connected to the room behind the bookshelf.
  • Cat Smile: Has one in one of her sprites.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: According to this post, one of the producers believes that she is the quirkiest character of the franchise to the point where they nicknamed her "Strange-chan".
  • Color Motif: Yellow.
  • Dark-Skinned Blond: Of the white-haired variety.
  • Easy Evangelism: She starts a small cult in Chapter 3 by playing on everyone's despair and fear. Her cult includes Himiko, Keebo, Tsumugi, Gonta, and Tenko (who has ulterior motives), and they all take over the school together with the intention of forcing the remaining survivors to accept living in the academy for the remainder of their lives.
  • The Extremist Was Right: Later revelations in the game indicate she was right to destroy the Flashback Lights, as they were actually implanting false memories in the heroes. If her cult had gotten her way in Chapter 3, she might also have been able to bring the 53rd season of Dangan Ronpa to a premature end by refusing to play their game.
  • First-Name Basis: On both ends. She calls everyone by their first names, and almost everyone calls her Angie and not Yonaga.
  • Genki Girl: She's very upbeat and energetic.
  • Hidden Depths:
    • Her last two Free Time Events with Shuichi have him realize that deep down, Angie is very lonely; part of the reason she's so pushy about being "Atua's oracle" is because she wants people to socialize with her, and on her island, claiming it was Atua's will was reason enough.
    • While her logic is somewhat more screwy, she has the right idea of how things should go. When Tenko accuses her of throwing Himiko under the bus in the second case, she retorts with asking whether Tenko is ready to accept if Himiko turns out to be the culprit and is betraying Tenko's trust while also implying that she indeed believes that Himiko is innocent but needs to clear up any suspicion against her.
  • I Love You Because I Can't Control You: Downplayed. She tells Shuichi in her final Free Time Event that she likes him so much because he's the first person who actually yelled at her.
  • Innocent Blue Eyes: She certainly appears "innocent" in the sense she is very childlike and good natured, but on the other hand her manipulative qualities can beg the question how much of this might be an act to get others to listen to her.
  • Manipulative Bitch: Angie has an uncanny aptitude for finding other people's weaknesses and pushing their buttons.
    • In the Ultimate Talent Development Plan, she has this to say after being rejected by Mondo Owada:
    Angie Yonaga: "No matter what you say, Atua is always watching over you, like a macho, reliable older brother."
    Mondo Owada: "Tch, get out of here!"
    Angie Yonaga: "Nyahahahaha! If you ever wanna know what Atua is saying... you can visit me anytime."
    Narrarator: "You [Mondo Owada] cooked some more yakisoba to clear your mind of Angie's words..."
    • Also from the Ultimate Talent Development Plan, Izuru Kamukura tells Angie to her face that all her talk of Atua is really just something she does to get what she wants from other people. Much to her and Atua(?)'s thinly veiled anger.
  • Maybe Magic, Maybe Mundane: When she speaks on behalf of Atua. It's not confirmed if she actually is some sort of oracle or if she is just delusional with rather keen instincts, since "Atua's" conclusions that the Mastermind came out of the Secret Room to kill Rantaro and the dangers of the flashback lights turned out a lot more accurate than initially believed. We also don't know what would have happened if she was allowed to finish the ritual meant to resurrect the dead classmates, and if it could work if that would have had more to do with actual magic or be more connected to the Truman Show Plot reveal.
  • Ms. Fanservice: Solely from her Stripperiffic design, which includes nothing but a bikini and a yellow coat.
  • Nice Girl: Despite her quirks, she is very caring. She even made statues of the deceased students in Chapter 3.
  • No Ontological Inertia: After Angie's death, her cult in Chapter 3 disbands.
  • Older Than She Looks: Not as bad as Himiko, but she looks fairly young for her age.
  • Perpetual Smiler: All of her sprites show her smiling.
  • Preacher Man: Most of her lines of dialogue so far have her talking about God. "Atua" in the English version, originating from Polynesian and Hawaiian mythology, subverting the more prevalent Christian preacher stereotype. Her religious preaches go on into a cultist conversion; by chapter 3, she has half of the surviving students into worshiping her god.
  • Recurring Element: Like Aoi and Akane from the past two games, Angie is the resident dark-skinned girl of the group.
  • Scam Religion: The exact details of her religion's beliefs and practices are vague, but from what Angie says quite a few signs point to this, with there being various levels of "membership", and low ranking members having "points deducted" if they do not keep those above them entertained.
  • Sempai/Kohai: Her Love Hotel scene, in which she's the upperclassman and Shuichi is the underclassman.
  • She Knows Too Much: She walks in on the third case's killer setting up the trap that they later use to kill another student, and is killed to keep her from telling anyone else.
  • Slain in Their Sleep: She is knocked unconscious with a blow to the head, moved to another room and then killed via the stab wound to her neck.
  • Stripperiffic: Her clothes are only a yellow coat and a bikini.
  • Tautological Templar: As long as she is following Atua's guidance, she can do no wrong.
  • Teens Are Short: The second shortest female in the group only beating Himiko by a few centimeters.
  • Third-Person Person: To add to her quirky, overly joyful personality.
  • Token Evil Teammate: Not intentionally (possibly) but she's the most apparently "evil" of the girls, as the establishment of the "Student Council" makes her come across as more of a threat than even Maki. She's nowhere near as bad as Tsumugi though, given how she does at least genuinely care about her classmates.
  • Token Religious Teammate: She's actually the first in the main game series.
  • Too Good for This Sinful Earth: Played With. Her portrait during the class trials doesn't have an X on it like every other dead person, it instead has a red halo and red angel wings, but Angie herself is almost as far from being a sympathetic character as she can be.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Her report card states that she likes avocados.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: When she sets up her "Student council" she ends up splitting the class in half and comes across as a tyrant, but she did it in an attempt to stop the killing game in a "peaceful" way.
