* SubmissiveBadass: He is very good in what he does, but he doesn't act on his own will. He lets the others take decisions for him and lead him by the nose.
* [[spoiler:TakeMeInstead]]: [[spoiler:Ginji does this ''twice''. He tries to cover for Heather in chapter 1, and in chapter 2 he confesses to murdering Valentina. But since his confession turned out to be false in chapter 1, the class doesn't take his chapter 2 confession seriously. Also, in chapter 2's trial Monobear gets so annoyed that he ''overrules Ginji'' and confirms personally that Ginji isn't the culprit, ''before'' the vote takes place (usually Monobear will keep silent if the class is about to vote wrong, so this is an unusual move for him).]]
* [[spoiler: ThePromise: He insists to Jaz after she tells him she was convinced he was dead that he will always be there for her, along with Nakunaru and Akemi. It's horribly broken in chapter five, when both Ginji and Nakunaru are found dead.]]
* TheSouthpaw: He's left handed, as seen when he pulls the gun on Monokuma in chapter two's trial. Comes more into play again when [[spoiler: he's found dead with gunpower on his left hand, implying he may have injured the culprit.]]

* {{Expy}}: He bears some coincidental similarities to [[spoiler:Nagito Komaeda from VisualNovel/{{Super Danganronpa 2}}. His sprite "poses" are based off Komaeda's, which wouldn't count on its own. However, Ginji also thinks of himself as lowlier than his classmates (though in Ginji's case he calls himself "just a murderer" rather than "just trash"), thinks his classmates are all awesome and immensely talented, tries to cover for the first culprit to encourage the first culprit's hope, but then gives up on the first culprit in disgust when the culprit gets caught anyway. And just like Komaeda, Ginji eventually wishes everyone else would die, though in Ginji's case this is after he recovers from being treated for burns by Monomi. Finally, just like Komaeda, Ginji is specifically the chapter 5 murder victim, as Komaeda was the chapter 5 victim in Super Dangan Ronpa 2.]]

[[spoiler:All of this is intentional, so that the later subversion comes as more of a shock: unlike Sonia, Haruka's friendly personality is an act, she's really a StepfordSmiler.]] Also, one important difference between Haruka and Sonia is that, unlike Sonia, [[spoiler:Haruka doesn't survive; she's murdered in chapter 7.]]

Akemi grew up in Chuo-ku, Osaka, surrounded by lots of food, tourists, and the big city. Her mother is a cold case detective, and from a very young age Akemi became interested in the mystery and intrigue of those unsolved enigmas of history. Her mom taught her how to look for evidence no matter how long the crime scene has been gone for, and her newfound analytical skills soon became focused onto a topic she learned about as a kid in school: Jack the Ripper. She began to devote her skills to studying, theorizing, and attempting to solve the old infamous Victorian serial murder case. She's a happy-go-lucky kind of girl who doesn't exactly understand that not everyone understands her talent, and that not everyone actually cares. [[spoiler:Akemi knows the circumstances of Valentina's death in chapter 2, but keeps them a secret until it's too late in the trial, causing an innocent to be executed. As it turns out, Akemi herself is inadvertently the killer; after encountering Valentina in the kitchen and attempting to stop her from committing suicide, the two end up working together to attempt to ensure that only one person had to die, which didn't happen. Akemi is the chapter 6 murder victim, found in a locker having died of exsanguination from a stomach wound inflicted by Nikki.]]

Have you heard of The Cyanide Rabbits? A fearsome girl gang with members spread all over Tokyo, part of the threat coming from being unable to detect their appearances — they all look like ordinary high school girls. Don’t let their looks fool you, however — they’re all quite tough. The head honcho herself, Minatsuki Amagi, is a woman of fearsome presence in spite of her small stature, with a powerful temper and a large chip on her shoulder. Y’know, in spite of being the size of a small child. [[spoiler:Minatsuki is killed by blood loss from non-lethal shot-at wounds at the beginning of chapter 8 as one of two victims, and the mods have declared that her death, as well as the death of the other victim, is "not to be investigated".]]

Akemi grew up in Chuo-ku, Osaka, surrounded by lots of food, tourists, and the big city. Her mother is a cold case detective, and from a very young age Akemi became interested in the mystery and intrigue of those unsolved enigmas of history. Her mom taught her how to look for evidence no matter how long the crime scene has been gone for, and her newfound analytical skills soon became focused onto a topic she learned about as a kid in school: Jack the Ripper. She began to devote her skills to studying, theorizing, and attempting to solve the old infamous Victorian serial murder case. She's a happy-go-lucky kind of girl who doesn't exactly understand that not everyone understands her talent, and that not everyone actually cares. [[spoiler:Akemi knows the circumstances of Valentina's death in chapter 2, but keeps them a secret until it's too late in the trial, causing an innocent to be executed. The secret is that Valentina was planning to kill herself by poison, and after Akemi failed to talk Valentina out of it, Akemi decided with Valentina's permission to "assist Valentina's suicide" using blunt force trauma so that only one innocent (Valentina) had to die, but this technically means Akemi killed Valentina. Akemi is the chapter 6 murder victim, found in a locker having died of exsanguination from a stomach wound inflicted by Nikki.]]
