[[folder: Season 1 Characters]]

!![[Anime/FullmetalAlchemist Frank Archer]]
!!!Super High School Level Investigator

'''Round One'''

[[spoiler:The co-culprit of week 6 (case 5).]]

* ZeroPercentApprovalRating: [[spoiler:Manages to be the most hated person on the island for a little while after the fifth trial. This may or may not be justified - on the one hand, he had no remorse for opportunistically murdering Jumba in cold blood; on the other, it's implied he wouldn't have acted at all had Lysandre not convinced him to do it.]]
* ColonelBadass: He's competent and able to keep his head even when under suspicion of having committed murder; even so, he's not ''quite'' as badass as he likes to think.
* ColonelKilgore: He's a soldier who's in a war back home, and while the paperwork may not be fun, the fighting sure seems to be. He seems pretty into the whole murder thing at times, too...
* LoopholeAbuse: [[spoiler:The double-culprit plan he came up with hinged on this.]]
* MaskOfSanity: To some extent. Most thought he was a bit creepy, but since he tended to keep to himself and was usually [[AffablyEvil polite and well-mannered]] among the others, he covered well for himself.
* PetTheDog:
** He was genuinely disturbed by [[spoiler:Aradia]]'s death; he was very active during the fourth trial to find [[spoiler:her]] killer, and showed up to the subsequent funeral.
** Had a bit of a confusing relationship with a few characters in which he often seemed to be ''trying'' to be supportive, even if the attempts were usually awkward and more than a little bizarre.
* ShipTease: For several weeks, with Lysandre. They actually slept together during Week Six. [[spoiler:...immediately after committing arguably the most gruesome murder in the game, turning the entire thing into NoYay. Several characters during the trial comment on how messed up that is.]]
* SmugSnake: Wasn't a very likable villain in this round, either in or out of character, aside from his small fondness for Aradia.
* TheSociopath: Came off as such in this round, anyway. Even when he did show emotional attachment, it wasn't for long, and he viewed the murder game as just something to get through or win.
* TheUnfettered: His morality is centred on "What can I do to get the best result?" The possibility of failure is acknowledged, but as long as ''he'' wins... [[spoiler:Which is why he came up with a plan to have a two-culprit murder: either he and Lysandre live or no one else dies at all. Either way, he's screwed the system and he's out of there.]]
* VillainousBreakdown: [[spoiler:After Lysandre turns on him during the fifth trial and begins trying to drag him under the bus with him.]]

'''Round Two'''

[[spoiler:Made it to the survivor pool.]]

* DeathWail: [[spoiler:In the aftermath of Lysandre's punishment.]]
* HeelRealization: Like Kirei, his came long ago and now he's owning it.
->"I'm ''not'' a decent person and I never will be."
* HiddenDepths: Not quite as big an asshole as he was in round 1. Also, who knew he could play the piano?
* MoralityPet: Archer starts developing actual feelings this round, largely thanks to Cynthia. She gets in his face and offers to help him out while being a Hero Of Justice until he can't help but have some kind of awkward fondness for her. [[spoiler:Probably why he didn't kill anyone this time.]]
* ParentalSubstitute: Seems to be growing a Feeling toward Cynthia, of all people. Yes, it's about as awkward and adorable as it sounds.
* TrueCompanions: With [[spoiler:the other 8 survivors of the Bunker Life of Mutual Killing]]. Despite having been through a killing game once before, it wasn't until this time through that he actually ''learned something'' from the experience.
-> [[spoiler:'''Madison:''']] ... Oh my god, you actually like them.
-> '''Archer:''' ...I suppose I do.
* WhatDoesThisButtonDo?: Found a strange button in a secret control room, and decided to push it. [[spoiler: It triggered the body announcement.]] ''He pushed it again.''
** Later confirmed by WordOfGod to have been a test in preparation for the Final Investigation to see what Archer would do when presented with a room full of buttons. [[spoiler:He passed.]]

!![[Franchise/AceAttorney Juniper Woods]]
!!!Super High School Level Gardener

[[spoiler:Made it to the survivor pool.]]

* TheChick: Her role in the game was the sweet emotional centre, with all the played-up girliness to go with it, rather than an enemy or a help in the trials.
* OfficialCouple: With Veronica by game's end.

!![[Franchise/AceAttorney Dahlia Hawthorne]]
!!!Super High School Level Chemist

[[spoiler:The victim of week 2 (case 1).]]

* BitchInSheepsClothing: To the point where nobody could believe it when [[spoiler:it turned out she'd been killed in self-defence]]. She acted sweet to everyone, but as in canon, was only looking out for herself.
* {{Irony}}: Dahlia, in canon, is [[spoiler:a BitchInSheepsClothing who engineered a bunch of people's deaths, manipulated and emotionally abused a number of them as well as her own twin sister (an awkward black-haired young woman who was in love with the protagonist and whom Dahlia ordered to dress up as her for her own ends), was executed for murder, and came back in an incorporeal form to try and get her revenge and kill people tied to her past.]] You've got to wonder [[spoiler:what the AI Junko thought of someone so like her being the first one dead]].

!![[{{Homestuck}} John Egbert]]
!!!Super High School Level Prankster

[[spoiler:The culprit of week 5 (case 4).]]

* NotTheFallThatKillsYou: [[spoiler:His execution had him dropped from a plane.]]
* {{Squick}}: [[InvokedTrope Invoked]]. He didn't even want to ''interact'' with [[spoiler:Hanamura in the dead community after they'd unknowingly eaten him when they were still alive]].
* WhatTheHellHero: He's called out when his and Aradia's plan to save everyone is discovered, because not only was it desperate, it could have gone wrong in ''so'' many ways. [[spoiler:And it did, ending with them both dead, no one any closer to escape, and Lysandre and Archer pushed to kill before someone else did the same thing.]]

!!Sam Erstwhile
!!!Super High School Level Book Collector

[[spoiler:His real title is "Super High School Level Thief". The victim of week 7 (case 6).]]

* ApologizesALot: As part of his sweet, harmless image.
* BitchInSheepsClothing: [[spoiler:And HOW. He projects the idea that he's a harmless bookworm, but the sweetness is a lie and he's long since lost any empathy for others. Especially helped by the game's SpoilAtYourOwnRisk policy; nobody knew, OOC or IC, that he was actually plotting to kill them all.]]
* {{Bookworm}}: It's in his title.
* BreakTheCutie: Became incredibly more upset and jaded as more people died, for obvious reasons.
* CynicismCatalyst: You'd think he was the ''reason'' that trope used to be called "Dead Little Sister". She was also his LivingEmotionalCrutch. [[spoiler:Her death is actually what [[DrivenToVillainy drove him to villainy]]]].
* EscapeArtist: [[spoiler:Komaeda]] jokes that Sam might be a "Super High School Level Houdini". Sam promptly responds by slipping out of handcuffs.
* IdiotBall: Despite being a bookworm, he isn't exactly the sharpest knife in the block, which was especially shown in cases like the time he thought Jumba ate Madison when she was merely changed to look like him. [[spoiler:However, he was honestly [[ObfuscatingStupidity MUCH smarter than he looked.]]]]
* EldritchAbomination: He comes off as a perfectly normal guy, [[spoiler:but his true form is an ancient aquatic monster.]]
* FromNobodyToNightmare: [[spoiler:Was once a shy older brother figure who loved his sister. Now, he's a literal monster bent on seeking revenge for her death.]]
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: [[spoiler:After being stabbed in the chest by Veronica, he was finished off by the bombs he was going to use to kill everyone else on the island.]]
* ItsAllAboutMe: [[spoiler:He sure ''seems'' like a caring guy, but he doesn't care about anyone else.]]
* LovableCoward: With murder going on all around him, is it any wonder?
* NotSoDifferent: [[spoiler:With Veronica, another "unnatural" being who cares chiefly for her sister.]]
* ManipulativeBastard: [[spoiler:Literally played the entire cast to think that he was a shy nerd who wouldn't hurt a fly. He was most certainly NOT.]]
* PsychoticSmirk: [[spoiler:Shows up during his villainous reveal.]]
* ShipTease: There was a lot of blushing and shy foot-shuffling with Madison, and they indeed dated for a while.
* ShrinkingViolet: Your average sweet, shy kid in over his head. [[spoiler:That would probably sound more convincing if the trope names were still allowed to be spoilered out in this section.]]
* ShutUpHannibal: [[spoiler:Is given this during his final confrontation with Veronica.]]
* TheyLookJustLikeEveryoneElse: [[spoiler:Looks like a scrawny, unkempt teenager on the outside, but on the inside...]]
* WeakButSkilled: [[spoiler:He can't fight to save his life, but his skills at thievery and emotional manipulation are something to behold.]]
* WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds: His sister was killed, he was driven to desperation for it, and now he's stuck in a murder game. [[spoiler:Yeah, but his only thought is of revenge and he wanted to kill the whole island.]]
* WoundedGazelleGambit: [[spoiler:Literally blew his own cabin up so that he could [[PlayingTheVictimCard play the victim card]].]]
* WalkingSpoiler: The game's SpoilAtYourOwnRisk policy helped a lot with keeping all those spoilered-out entries above under wraps.
* YouMonster: Stammered this at Monobear after the cannibalism incident. [[spoiler:He's been on the receiving end of quite a few since.]]


!![[JimmyTwoShoes Jimmy Two-Shoes]]
!!!Super High School Level Positivity

[[spoiler:Made it to the survivor pool.]]

* {{Adorkable}}: With a permanent grin and a friendly demeanour towards everyone.
* BadassAdorable: And only gets more so as the game goes on. It says something when [[spoiler:Junko saw the silly, happy-go-lucky kid with no actual combat or trial experience as the biggest threat to her game]].
* DraggedOffToHell: [[spoiler:Averted at the last second by the intervention of Hinata, Sonia, and Gundam.]]
* TheHero: He's got [[IdiotHair the ahoge]], the optimism, and the friendship for it, prompting calls of "Jimmy for this round's protagonist!". Later in the game, especially [[spoiler:after Lysandre and Veronica's executions]], the group sees him as both TheLeader and TheHeart.
* HugeGuyTinyGirl: Him and Heloise, height-wise. He's 6 feet tall while she's only 4 feet 8 inches.
* IronWoobie: This kid goes through a lot, [[spoiler:even being targeted by the Mastermind after he failed to kill or be killed]]. But what do you expect from a guy who somehow ended up living in Hell?
* ObliviousToLove: He's initially unaware of Heloise's true feelings for him. [[spoiler:Except not really.]]
* ObfuscatingStupidity: In regards to [[spoiler:Heloise's crush on him. He knew all along, he was just afraid acknowledging it might hurt their friendship.]]
* OfficialCouple: With Heloise, making it [[spoiler:the first and so far only DRRP couple to have both participants survive to the end of the game]].
* ThePollyanna: His very title is about keeping positive when things are dark, which eventually shaped him into this round's "protag".
* ShipTease: Heloise confesses her feelings to him at the end of week 3, but they don't really become official until week 6.
* YouAreWorthHell: With Heloise. They refuse to go on apart.

[[spoiler:'''Round 2''']]

* GreenThumb: [[spoiler:He's started training a Grass-type Pokémon.]]
* PreviousPlayerCharacterCameo: [[spoiler:He shows up with some other Round 1 characters and [=NPCs=] at the end.]]

!![[Series/AmericanHorrorStoryCoven Madison Montgomery]]
!!!Super High School Level Witch

[[spoiler:Made it to the survivor pool.]]

* AlphaBitch: She still acts like she's in high school at the top of the popularity chain.
* BeingGoodSucks: After she promises not to kill anyone and decides to actually help the group out, she finds that it was a lot easier just to hate everyone.
* BerserkButton: Don't imply you [[RapeAndRevenge used someone in a certain way.]]
* BigBrotherInstinct: Gender-inverted. She slowly grows to like and look after the younger characters on the island.
* BlackAndGreyMorality: Everyone, to her, is just a killer in waiting, so why should she be surprised?
* BrokenBird: She went through a lot in canon just because she happened to be there. Madison may be angry, but she has the backstory for it.
* DeadpanSnarker: When everyone else is freaking out, she'll usually just make a snide comment.
* EthicalSlut: She may just want to live out her life with cigarettes and random sex, but rudeness aside, she's one of the good guys.
* HopeIsScary: When she acknowledges that positivity can help them, she also sees that it can't be the [[SillyRabbitIdealismIsForKids childish ideal]] she thought, simply because of what it does to the enemy.
* JerkassHasAPoint: Madison might be callous during trials, but they ''do'' need to convict the guilty or die.
* TheLancer: To Jimmy's Hero, providing the cynicism to his hope and the differing opinions, once she actually goes into the hero business.
* MoralityPet: She admits if she hadn't made a promise to Jimmy she probably would have murdered someone.
* NeutralEvil: Not a nice person to begin with, but doesn't side with anyone and doesn't care either for the rules or for anarchy.
* TheNicknamer: Of the disrespectful variety.
* RebelliousRebel: Oh, the others are starting a secret rebellion against the headmaster? Let Madison complain all day about how stupid and pointless that is.
* TakeMeInstead: [[spoiler:When Jimmy gets framed and is about to be executed, she votes for herself and gets others to do the same.]]
* TokenAdult: [[spoiler:The only one over 18 to make it to the survivor pool.]]
* SourSupporter: Even when she's good, she spends most of her time snarking and complaining.

[[spoiler:'''Round 2''']]

* AscendedMeme: [[spoiler:Actually, yes, Madison, we ''did'' think we'd seen the last of you.]]
* PreviousPlayerCharacterCameo: [[spoiler:Shows up at the end of Round 2.]]
* SourSupporter: [[spoiler:She stands by the team and considers them her friends (though she wouldn't admit it), but she's still not very nice.]]
* WitchWithACapitalB: [[spoiler:Schuldig says the school must have made a typo on her ID.]]

!![[Franchise/AceAttorney Franziska von Karma]]
!!!Super High School Level Prosecutor

[[spoiler:The culprit of week 4 (case 3).]]

* FaceDeathWithDignity: [[spoiler: Her execution is considered one of the most haunting in part because of her composure.]]
* FigureItOutYourself: Rather than carry a whole trial, she tries to direct the other students to not perform so disappointingly. [[spoiler:When her own trial comes up, she limits herself to redirecting tangents, knowing that she'll be dead afterwards and the others will have to go on without her and hoping to leave an impression that will allow them to do so.]]

!![[IrisuSyndrome Satoshi Uujima]]
!!!Super High School Level Mimic

[[spoiler:Made it to the survivor pool.]]

!![[MarvelCinematicUniverse Phil Coulson]]
!!!Super High School Level Agent

[[spoiler:The victim and culprit of week 3 (case 2).]]

* PeacefulInDeath

!![[{{JimmyTwoShoes}} Heloise]]
!!!Super High School Level Mad Scientist

[[spoiler:Made it to the survivor pool.]]

* ChekhovsGift: During week 6, she gives Jimmy a stun-gun [[spoiler:which he later uses to stop Irisu when she tries to kill Uuji during week 8.]]
* DrivenToSuicide: [[spoiler:Averted during Jimmy's execution, thanks to him being rescued.]]
* EvenEvilHasStandards: While she works for a CaptainErsatz of {{Satan}} and her occupation is literally the creation of misery, she considers Monokuma and his methods of causing despair ''way'' over the line.
* EvilGenius: Claims to be evil, but she's more of a [[PunchClockVillain Punch Clock Villainess]] who ''really'' enjoys her work.
* HairColorDissonance: Her hair is dirty blonde, but sometimes gets mistaken for brown or regular blonde. [[spoiler:This becomes important during certain trials.]]
* HeroicBSOD: Has a minor one at the end of the case 4 trial after [[spoiler:Jimmy refuses to vote for John]], but a much bigger one comes during week 7, when she discovers [[spoiler:that [[AHellOfATime the world she and Jimmy are from]] may actually be the afterlife.]]
** She also [[spoiler:prepares to [[DrivenToSuicide shoot herself with her own laser gun]] during Jimmy's execution, but after he's rescued, she becomes so overwhelmed that she faints and ends up out cold for a while.]]
* HugeGuyTinyGirl: Her and Jimmy, height-wise. She's 4'8'' while he's 6 feet tall.
* MadScientist: Well, it is her title.
* MoralityChain: Jimmy is a MAJOR factor in keeping her rather stable. She proudly considers herself "evil" otherwise, [[spoiler:and when faced with losing him, she tries to kill herself right away.]]
* OfficialCouple: With Jimmy. Like in canon, they start out just best friends but with her having a huge crush on him, while he's completely oblivious [[spoiler: except he actually isn't]]. Though she confesses her feelings at the end of week 3, they don't really become official until week 6.
* ShorterMeansSmarter: At only 144 cm (4 feet 8 inches) tall, she's the shortest of the season 1 cast, but one of the smartest.
* TheSmartGuy: Gives the team ideas and scientific help.
* TeenGenius: She's as much a mad scientist as Jumba, and she's what, sixteen?
* OlderThanTheyLook: Madison mistakes her for being younger than she really is because she's so short.
* OnlyOneName: She mentions the last name given to her by the student profiles, "Hellspawn", isn't her real last name. In fact, she doesn't even know what that word means. [[spoiler:Until week 7.]]
* VillainousBreakdown: [[spoiler:Actually ''fakes one'' during the case 6 trial, due to her HeroicBSOD earlier that week.]]
* YouAreWorthHell: With Jimmy, for whom she'd face any consequence.

!![[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI Locke Cole]]
!!!Super High School Level Treasure Hunter

Did not have to threaten to rip anyone's lungs out. [[spoiler:Executed by Monobear.]]

!![[Manga/FrankenFran Veronica Madaraki]]
!!!Super High School Level Bodyguard

[[spoiler:The culprit of week 7 (case 6).]]

* {{Adorkable}}: She takes herself seriously, but the others on the island look at her as awkwardly cute.
* BigDamnHeroes: As would be expected from the SHSL Bodyguard. [[spoiler:Of course, the true trope-defining moment came during the Graduation Exam, when she and Kuzuryuu re-entered the simulation to provide backup for the survivors.]]
* CoveredInScars: From being stitched up and cut open repeatedly.
* CuteMonsterGirl: Vaguely reminiscent of Frankenstein's monster.
* DarkSecret: She's an ArtificialHuman. Not something she likes having others know, though she trusts a select few enough to tell them.
* DeclarationOfProtection: Gives one to Juniper and another towards pretty much the entire class.
* {{Determinator}}: She refused to give up on her class making it out, to the point of [[spoiler:soloing an EldritchAbomination bent on leaving everyone dead. Even dying didn't stop her.]]
* DyingDeclarationOfLove: [[spoiler:Toward Juniper.]]
* HeroicSacrifice: [[spoiler:She was executed as a culprit, but she gained that status while killing Sam to save the others.]]
* LittleMissBadass: She's an SHSL Bodyguard. The ''canon'' character with that title was actually a bunch of identical people pretending to be the same person. Veronica's just a slight teenage girl, [[spoiler:yet she managed to protect the whole island from a NotSoHarmlessVillain.]]
* OfficialCouple: With Juniper, after weeks of awkward blushing and foot-shuffling.

!![[VideoGame/PokemonXAndY Lysandre]]
!!!Super High School Level Leader

'''Round One'''

[[spoiler:The co-culprit of week 6 (case 5).]]

* ChekhovsGift: [[spoiler:The [[RedRightHand replacement hand]] he got from Jumba for Christmas was used in the murder of its maker.]]
* DespairEventHorizon: [[spoiler:He fell into despair after the third case, where it was clear that his efforts to revolt were hopeless, which led to the planning and carrying-out of the fifth. The fourth case in between decidedly didn't help and only proved to him that even the well-intentioned and those who planned to help everyone escape could end up killing them all.]]
* FieryRedhead: Resistance leader and [[MemeticMutation angry man]].
* MaddenIntoMisanthropy: His backstory. Twisted as, in canon and in both game rounds in which he appears, he seems to follow the trope line of being a perfectly good person, just bitter and liberated from convention... but then turns out to be broken and hateful enough to do terrible things for the greater good or just for revenge.
* MenDontCry: Averted following a few of the trials.
* MoralityPet: Jimmy and Veronica. [[spoiler:For a while, anyway...]]
* NotTheFallThatKillsYou: [[spoiler:His execution involved decidedly non-SoftWater.]]
* PetTheDog:
** He genuinely cared about his Pokémon, and spent a fair amount of time during free days playing with and feeding them.
** He had a definite soft spot for Jimmy and Veronica, seeming to unofficially adopt both of them after a while.
* PutThemAllOutOfMyMisery: He showed up on Jabberwock Island while [[VideoGame/PokemonXAndY literally in the middle of attempting to pull this on Kalos.]] [[spoiler:And then proceeded to attempt a similar stunt against his fellow students during the fifth trial.]]
* RedRightHand: [[spoiler:Literally. It's one of the pieces of evidence that pointed to him during Case Five.]]
* RightHandCat: Pyroar serves as a particularly large and dangerous variant in Round 1. Less so in Round 2, where [[spoiler:he spends half the round under [[KindheartedCatLover Sycamore's]] guardianship instead and Lysandre's right-hand villain monstrosities are Gyarados and Henri.]]
* ShipTease: For several weeks, with Archer. They actually slept together during Week Six. [[spoiler:...immediately after committing arguably the most gruesome murder in the game, turning the entire thing into NoYay. Several characters during the trial comment on how messed up that is.]]
* SignatureMove: Using Pyroar, who was never kept in his Pokéball and almost always at Lysandre's side.
* SoftWater: [[spoiler:Averted with his death. ''Hard''.]]
* SupportingLeader: While definitely not the protagonist and generally useless during investigations, Lysandre's primary functions were to lead the resistance/keep everyone unified and keep the trials on track while the actual protagonists and investigators did their thing.
* TakingYouWithMe: [[spoiler:Upon deciding that he wouldn't be able to live with himself if the plan he'd formed with Archer succeeded, he proceeded to drag his co-culprit under the bus with him.]]
* WhyWontYouDie: [[spoiler:"If you had all just shut up and ''died'', it would have been perfect!"]]

'''Round Two'''

[[spoiler: Punished by Monobear for destroying school property following the fifth trial... not! It's revealed that he was still alive and actually the Mastermind.]]

* BoomHeadshot: [[spoiler:His fake punishment.]]
* CrossingTheBurnedBridge: With Betty. Because of the claustrophobic nature of the game, they basically had no choice.
* DiesWideOpen: [[spoiler:His fake punishment, with his eyes staring into the camera after his hologram is shot in the head.]]
* OfficialCouple: With Sycamore eventually... and even if they don't outright say it when they get together, the entire school knows right away.
* OnlySaneMan: Somehow managing to turn into this in round 2.
* RedOniBlueOni: Blue Oni to Sycamore's Red Oni, in a hilarious reversal of their actual color schemes.
* SacrificialLion: After [[spoiler:his fake punishment]], his CR's development centres on going on without him and many of their stories take sharp turns. [[spoiler:When it's revealed that he was still alive, they prove that his "sacrifice" meant something to them.]]
* ShipTease: With Sycamore. As of Week 6 they finally kissed (after sharing a bed off and on for ''weeks'').
* TeamDad: Along with Sycamore's TeamMom.
* WorthyOpponent: Apparently considered this by Kirei. Funny considering that he's also the only person in the cast ''taller'' than Kirei.

!![[Disney/LiloAndStitch Dr Jumba Jookiba]]
!!!Super High School Level Experimental Geneticist

[[spoiler:The victim of week 6 (case 5).]]

* ChekhovsGift: Gave one to Lysandre. [[spoiler: It was later used in Jumba's murder.]]
* EvilGenius: Self-described, no less.
* FamilyUnfriendlyDeath: [[spoiler:''AND HOW.'' He was bisected with a burning laser, leaving only a recording of his strangled scream from one of his experiments, and then left there for days.]]
* HalfTheManHeUsedToBe: [[spoiler:Cut in half by a freaking laser.]]
* MadScientist: Like with Heloise, it's in his title and job description. He even started recreating his experiments on the island.
* MadScientistLaboratory: [[spoiler: Had one hiding under the airport, as part of his payment by Monobear for being TheMole.]]
* TheMole: [[spoiler: Was originally this for Monobear, before John and Aradia's deaths made him fess up to Monomi, becoming very temporarily the ReverseMole.]]
* MorallyAmbiguousDoctorate: Friendly mad scientist and self-proclaimed villain.
* PersonalEffectsReveal: [[spoiler: Among other things, the password to his computer was "1eyed1", and on it he had left schematics for a spaceship with enough seats for 20 people... Exactly the amount of people who originally arrived on Jabberwock Island.]]
* RedemptionEqualsDeath: [[spoiler: Jumba gets murdered the day after he betrays Monobear and confesses to Monomi.]]

!![[{{VideoGame/Fable3}} Page]]
!!!Super High School Level Strategist

[[spoiler:The culprit of week 2 (case 1).]]

!![[{{Homestuck}} Roxy Lalonde]]
!!!Super High School Level Hacker

[[spoiler:Made it to the survivor pool.]]

* TheHeart: Keeps the team believing in a way out and in each other.
* SmoochOfVictory: with [[spoiler:Hinata, after whom she'd been pining since he got there.]]

!![[{{Homestuck}} Aradia Megido]]
!!!Super High School Level Archaeologist

[[spoiler:The victim of week 5 (case 4).]]

* BlueAndOrangeMorality: She fit in really well with the other aliens, but the humans didn't understand her one bit, especially her cavalier attitude towards dead bodies and human customs.

!![[{{IrisuSyndrome}} Irisu Kyouko]]
!!!Super High School Level Wordsmith

[[spoiler:Made it to the survivor pool.]]

* WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds: The kid's freaking ''disturbing'' when you get down to it, but blame the tragic backstory for that.

!!Maya Ayling
!!!Super High School Level Marine Biologist

[[spoiler:The victim of week 4 (case 3).]]

* AnythingThatMoves: Though as her student ID alludes to, people with abnormal physiology are her favourite flavour. She considers [[spoiler:local EldritchAbomination Sam Erstwhile]] her proudest conquest yet.
* BizarreAlienBiology: [[spoiler:A good amount of time is wasted at the trial for Maya’s murder, when her fellow students are left perplexed as to how she was killed due to not knowing how her body ever worked in the first place.]]
* Cloudcuckoolander: Justified in that Maya’s brain is not genetically hardwired the exact same as your average human's, though it’s difficult to determine how much her instinctual octopus mechanisms are to blame for her outlandish mannerisms and how much is just straight-up eccentricity.
* CombatTentacles: Maya being MultiArmedAndDangerous kept her from being considered an easy target by certain fellow students. However, [[spoiler:Franziska's whip served her well during the pair’s struggle, as she could attack Maya whilst remaining out of her tentacles’ range.]]
* DeadlyDoctor: [[spoiler:A hopeful future medical student, Maya intended to utilise her medicinal knowledge to murder a classmate via forced overdosage.]]
* DeathByIrony: [[spoiler:Maya is killed via the exact same method she had planned to inflict upon another student. Additionally, whilst Maya’s officially stated cause of death was overdose, it is debatable whether the effects of the drug killed her first, or whether she drowned in the mix of liquid painkillers and her own blood. In other words, Franziska may indeed have drowned the octopus.]]
* DespairEventHorizon: [[spoiler:Receiving photographs of her hometown in disarray, its marine hybrid citizens being manhandled and its famous coral reef destroyed, spiralled Maya into a depression that led to her plotting to take a life.]]
* EverythingsSquishierWithCephalopods: Maya is a HalfHumanHybrid who has both human and octopus genetics, and hails from a town where FishPeople like herself make up a majority of the population
* ExoticEntree: Monobear is seen eating [[spoiler:takoyaki during the trial for Maya’s murder. It is heavily implied said victim's tentacles were the central ingredient of this deliberately grim snack.]]
* FalseUtopia: Malevonain, Maya’s home country, was once the cultural and technological capital of her world, presenting itself as a forward-thinking utopia whilst the government incarcerated its citizens in highly unethical behind scenes attempts to perfect BioAugmentation. They failed.
* FantasticRacism: Often the victim back in her home-world. Resultantly, Maya reacts with great dissatisfaction to being mistaken for a monster or having hers or her people’s humanity questioned.
* LonerTurnedFriend: [[spoiler:After hearing Jimmy talk about how he wished Maya had spoken to the group about her motive photos so they could have helped her before she fell deep enough into despair to plan to kill, Maya made a conscious effort to reach out to and interact with the other deceased students on the mirror island.]]
* NecessarilyEvil: [[spoiler:Maya only attempted to graduate because she believed she could circumvent the destruction of her home. Such was Maya’s discomfort with what she was doing that she readily blurted out her plans to Franziska when cornered in the pharmacy, and she is shown to be greatly remorseful upon waking on the mirror island.]]
** [[spoiler:WordOfGod is that, had Maya succeeded in graduating, she would have ultimately been DrivenToSuicide by her guilt.]]
* NoSenseOfPersonalSpace: Maya is prone to touching, grabbing, or hugging other characters without prior permission…though she does remember her manners occasionally.
* ScareEmStraight: [[spoiler:Once she arrives in the afterlife folder, one of the first things she does is intimidate Saionji into leaving the poor birds she was torturing alone.]]
[[/folder]]

Frank Archer and Lysandre return from Round 1 in addition to the characters below.

!![[VideoGame/TalesOfLegendia Jay]] the Unseen
!!!Super High School Level Spy

[[spoiler:One of the victims of Week 5 (case 4).]]

* {{Jerkass}}: Comes across as one. He doesn't seem to care about anyone else or their escape attempts.

[[spoiler: The culprit of Week 7 (case 6.)]]

* AbsentMindedProfessor: Given some of the mental effects of the crown.
* AnIcePerson: Not only has ice powers but appears to be an ice monster.
* GoshDangItToHeck: As benefiting a children's show character.
* KillTheOnesYouLove: [[spoiler:Though he wasn't aware of what he was doing and did it in self-defence besides, he turns out to be the one who killed Betty.]]
* SlowTransformation: Went through one from his normal human form to his current Blue Santa form as a result of putting on the crown.
* TogetherInDeath: [[spoiler:Is able to reconcile with Betty in the afterlife.]]
* WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity: The crown might give him power over ice and snow, but it's also taking a toll on his sanity.

!![[WesternAnimation/AdventureTime Betty Grof]]
!!!Super High School Level Space-Time Expert

[[spoiler: The victim of Week 7 (case 6).]]

* ActionGirl: Beats up Dan with ease.
* ATragedyOfImpulsiveness: Her ''entire time'' at murder school.
* CrossingTheBurnedBridge: Due to the claustrophobic nature of the situation, it was hard for her to keep avoiding Lysandre even after their disastrous conversation early in week 5.
* FieryRedhead: Got in a number of arguments for the sake of anyone she liked whom anyone else insulted.
* FlowerInHerHair: [[spoiler: Her corpse was found wearing a flower crown.]]
* GoshDangItToHeck: Same as Simon.
* MercyKill: [[spoiler:Attempted to give one to Simon.]]
* MorallyAmbiguousDoctorate: Largely a good guy, but she's done some seriously questionable things, chiefly [[spoiler:trying to MercyKill her fiancé and having a large part in the slow breaking of Dan.]]
* ParentalSubstitute: To [[spoiler:Homura. She was going to make it official, but then Homura died.]]
* PrecisionFStrike: [[spoiler: After her ill-fated conversation with Lysandre ends with a death threat, Betty lets out a simple ''Damn''.]]
* TogetherInDeath: [[spoiler:Tried to commit murder-suicide to mercy-kill Simon but failed. Even so, they ended up in the afterlife together soon enough.]]
* WeirdScience: The stuff she studies runs off this, since, well, her world does.

!![[{{Manga/Saiyuki}} Son Goku]]
!!!Super High School Level Wild Child

[[spoiler:Made it to the survivor pool.]]

* BrutalHonesty: The kid has no brain-to-mouth filter. He tries to use it to good ends, but sometimes gets shut down with claims that he's CompletelyMissingThePoint.
* CheerfulChild: Well, teenager, and as much as one ''can'' be cheerful here. He's one of the most cluelessly optimistic people on the team.
* GoofyPrintUnderwear: Bacon-print boxers.
* HopelessWithTech: He has no idea how to work any of the shiny Hope's Peak gadgets.
* InnocentlyInsensitive: When someone's excited about their upcoming wedding, you don't start asking whether they plan to take any other students as concubines. Just a thought.

!![[Disney/{{Frozen}} Anna]]
!!!Super High School Level Little Sister (main canon)
!!!Super High School Level Radiance (Disney Ronpa)

'''Round Two'''

[[spoiler:Made it to the survivor pool.]]

* BreakTheCutie: Okay, so that's the point of the despair game, but Anna's been through quite a few personal revelations in addition to the torture going on around her.
** [[spoiler: Week 10 was particularly relentless on Anna, considering she not only remembered Hans's [[HiddenVillain reveal]] but also lost her mother figure that week.]]
* CuteClumsyGirl: Runs into things a lot. Though she's a force to be reckoned with when she gets down to business.
* FieryRedhead: Jumps into things without thinking and sticks to her guns despite reason.
* FriendToAllLivingThings: Before the sixth trial, she managed to get evidence out of the resident man-eating plant in the greenhouse, Audrey III, by [[MusicSoothestheSavageBeast singing to it]].
* InLoveWithLove: [[spoiler: Somewhat subverted when she first regains her memories of Hans, though it doesn't take long for her love for her sister and friends, both living and deceased, to become her motivator again.]]
* TheIngenue: On top of all of her naivete (and she's got that in spades), she's completely unable to comprehend profanity or adult topics; played for laughs in Week 3 when Naomi and Cecil give her TheTalk, and when Cynthia tries to explain the contents of her mother's book to her.
* LethalChef: Tries to cook pancakes with {...} in Week 1, and somehow ends up getting one stuck to the ceiling. It stayed up there for ''nine whole weeks'' before finally falling.
* TheMatchmaker: She's determined to see Adachi and Sonico together in Week 3, and in Week 5, she sees Naomi and {...} talking during her Karaoke Night and [[ShipperOnDeck instantly plans to set them up]] (much to Naomi's chagrin).
* NeverSpeakIllOfTheDead: She rips a strip out of [[spoiler:the Mastermind when he says that those who didn't survive to that point had "failed".]]
* ParentalSubstitute: Naomi basically serves as her mother figure throughout the game, and {...} her father figure by extension. [[spoiler: She loses both in a span of two weeks.]]
* ThePollyanna: Convinced that everything will be just fine from the start.
* ThePromise: She and Naomi swore early in the game to keep one another safe, a vow that Anna takes very seriously. [[spoiler: As such, she's obviously devastated after Naomi dies at the end of Week 10.]]
* RulesLawyer: Shaped up to be one of these as well, after encouragement from Schuldig in Week 7, as pushing the rules had proven to be one way to fight back against Monobear's unfair treatment.
* StrongerThanTheyLook: Both [[PintsizedPowerhouse physically]] and emotionally.
* StudentAndMasterTeam: Becomes the "Student" to Naomi starting in Week 4.
* SurvivorGuilt: Discussed this with Naomi after the [[spoiler: fifth motive and trial; though there were four people stuck on the third floor of the building that week, Anna was the only one who survived.]]
* YouMonster: The only thing she could think of to say when she learned about [[spoiler:Junko and how she betrayed and killed her own sister]].

'''Disney Ronpa'''

[[spoiler: The victim of Week 3 (Case 2).]]

* AlternateSelf: Due to the rules of gimmick rounds being non-canonical to the main game, this Anna isn't the same one from Round 2 (despite being played by the same mun). She has the same new last name, but a different SHSL title.
* CuteClumsyGirl: She's this in canon, too, but here she runs into almost every one of her classmates within the first few minutes of the game.
* FoolishSiblingResponsibleSibling: The foolish one to Elsa's responsible, but Elsa having to be responsible stresses her out and Anna becomes the one she can depend on.
* InterfaceScrew: When she became invisible, she lost her default icon designation and started replying to things with no icons.
* InvisibleMainCharacter: During the curse motive, she's rendered invisible and inaudible, just when her sister forgets she ever existed.
* IWillWaitForYou: Played with. The line is delivered with the same emotional weight as usual... even though she's just waiting for her sister to catch up to her in the book series they're both reading. [[spoiler:Helps that she dies reading the last book.]]
* RoleReprisal: Even though it's technically a different Anna, she's still played by the same person like canon recurring characters have to be.

!![[Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica Homura Akemi]]
!!!Super High School Level Time Traveller

[[spoiler: The victim of Week 4 (case 3).]]

* ATragedyOfImpulsiveness: And ''how''. If she'd only had time to think about what was going around her instead of jumping to the worst conclusion at a time when no one was in their right minds, [[spoiler:she might not have died or attacked Ike.]]
* BungledSuicide: [[spoiler:She still dies, but it's helped along by Ike after she attacks him in a fit of motive-induced delusion.]]
* DeadManWriting: To many of the surviving characters.
* [[invoked]] EpilepticTrees: In the final trial, Homura concludes from everything she sees in the proceedings that... [[spoiler:the students are all Pokemon]]. What?
* GreatDetective: When she's thinking logically and not jumping to planting EpilepticTrees. Being at that level is not only what helped lead to [[spoiler:unmasking Saki as the second killer, but also helped her to realize that Lysandre was the Mastermind ''before the living students even thought of it''.]]
* GrowingWings: She does eventually, with painful results. Homura, [[BodyHorror you're]] [[PainfulTransformation not]] [[AndIMustScream exactly]] NighInvulnerable in this school...
* LastNameBasis: An accidental case; because her name was written in Eastern order, Betty got mixed up and thought Akemi was her first name for weeks.
* NotSoDifferent: She sees some of [[spoiler:Homucifer]] in the Mastermind, particularly their treatment of their object of affection and "screw the rest of the world" attitude.
* OccamsRazor: How she discovers that [[spoiler:she became a witch.]]
* RaisedCatholic: Still very religious in the beginning, but not so much when she starts remembering the TraumaCongaLine that was her life.
* SuperPowerMeltdown: As the game progresses, she begins to [[spoiler: unconsciously manifest elements of her barrier around the school.]] Reaches a head after the second trial when [[spoiler: her wings manifest by ''tearing their way out of her back''.]]
* TheDarkSideWillMakeYouForget: And reverting to your adorable, innocent original self but slowly regaining your memories will make you remember. [[spoiler:By the end, and especially after her crucial development in the afterlife, she's become a lot more healthy than either the timid Moemura or the obsessive, controlling Homucifer.]]
* TomatoInTheMirror: Homura, [[spoiler:the Witch you're looking for is still you]].
* WonderChild: To Betty and Simon, basically, as they had wanted a child and discover a sweet, lovable orphan right in front of them. Cecil is her HonoraryUncle.

!![[VideoGame/TheWorldEndsWithYou Sanae Hanekoma]]
!!!Super High School Level Convenient Timing

[[spoiler:The victim of case 2.]]

* IronicNickname: His title. [[spoiler:The announcement of his murder occurred during Betty and Simon's wedding.]]
* TheNicknamer: Right off the bat, he starts giving them to people, even Monobear.
* PosthumousCharacter: [[spoiler:Granted, he lived three weeks and developed CR. However, a lot of important development happened after his death through his student file, reports, and canonmate.]]

!![[Anime/SuperSonico Super Sonico]]
!!!Super High School Level Gravure Idol

[[spoiler:Made it to the survivor pool.]]

* {{Adorkable}}: A sweet girl who gets a little too obsessed with the things she likes.
* ApologizesALot: She feels a little inferior to the students with more impressive talents and feels like a burden at times, hence this.
* BreakTheCutie: [[spoiler: Losing your best friend one week and then finding out your boyfriend's a serial killer who not only killed women back home but also your big brother figure the very next? ''Damn.'']]
* CoolBigSis: To [[spoiler:Beat, who begins calling her 'Nee-san' and eventually 'Sonico-nee' following the final trial and graduation exam.]]
* {{Determinator}}: To which extent she's helped carry two trials, one while she had a concussion.
* FeminineWomenCanCook: Very girly and known for her cooking skills, even teaching Adachi to make more than instant.
* HiddenDepths: Despite being easily flustered and somewhat scatterbrained, she's proved to be surprisingly competent in trials (particularly second trial where she was ''concussed'') and when she comes to the conclusion that she's merely at the school to be a VictimOfTheWeek during week 6, she decides to do everything in her power to subvert that role.
* InnocentFanserviceGirl: Like Betty, wins a school swimsuit from the Monomono Machine and dons it during the second week. She doesn't seem to see a problem with it at all.
* IllGirl: Concussed for most of week two after being attacked by Beat.
* MoralityPet: Is this to Adachi. Implied that [[spoiler: she's what's keeping a lot of his canon... ''tendencies'' at bay through most of the story.]]
** In week 6, she [[spoiler: outright overheard him talking about wanting to ''kill someone'' (from back home, not in the school) and about to go on a destructive rampage of some sort after remembering the death of Nanako Dojima. The sound of her voice calmed him down ''immediately''.]]
* NiceGirl: Genuinely sweet and one of the few characters who doesn't have something to hide.
* NeverBareheaded: Averted for the first week - her trademark headphones were stuck in the Monomono Machine. She managed to get them back pretty fast though and even after she stops wearing them after [[spoiler: the final trial]], she's rarely seen without a hat of some kind.
* OfficialCouple: With Adachi. Accepted when he asked her out during week 3, became official for sure by the end of week 4.
* RoseHairedSweetie: Every bit as rose-haired and sweet as the trope suggests. Unfortunately it's what led to people suspecting her in [[spoiler: case 1, since pinkish hair was found in the victim's hand.]]
* YouCantGoHomeAgain: [[spoiler:Even if going home was what she wanted most throughout the game, at the end of it, she starts to think that maybe she never could because she's gone through too much.]]

!![[VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening Cynthia]]
!!!Super High School Level Heroine

[[spoiler:Made it to the survivor pool.]]

* BileFascination: [[invoked]] In the library, she discovered a book she recognized from her mother's collection but hadn't actually read. Until she cracked it open, she hadn't put together the clues that it was from her mother's ''PornStash''. It was also not very good. And yet, perpetually on the edge of reaching for BrainBleach, she kept reading.
* BrokenPedestal: Her view of her hero was severely shattered when [[spoiler:Ike assisted Homura's suicide and tried to frame Cecil to escape]].
* CloudCuckooLander: Assumes a lot of weird things instead of the obvious answers.
* GenkiGirl: Cynthia gets a little intense with her ideals of heroism and friendship, and she tries to keep as positive as she can.
* ThePowerOfFriendship: She will give friendship speeches and round up the cast every time they seem to be losing hope.
* NotSoDifferent: [[spoiler:The Mastermind couldn't bring himself to draw up her execution plan because she reminded him of himself when he still had hope. Cynthia starts to worry that maybe she'll end up like him if she's not careful.]]
* RousingSpeech: Considers it her specialty.
* VanHelsingHateCrimes: Initially hated all undead (and just creepy pale people who looked undead -- sorry, Archer), but quickly learned that they weren't all bad like they were at home and befriended them. Although she still harboured a theory for weeks that the mastermind must be [[spoiler:Zombie Junko]].
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Most of her icons depict the blue-haired version of Cynthia.

!![[VideoGame/PokemonXAndY Augustine Sycamore]]
!!!Super High School Level Researcher

[[spoiler:Made it to the survivor pool.]]

* DeathWail: [[spoiler: In the aftermath of Lysandre's punishment.]]
* TheHeart: Much like Roxy in the previous game, Sycamore is the emotional core of the team and the support for both the leader and the eventual protagonist, [[spoiler: and he rallies everyone to vote hope at the end of the game.]]
* HeroicBSOD: [[spoiler: Finding out that Lysandre was the Mastermind did quite the number on his emotional state. ''Especially'' when he learned they were in his own world all along -- and it was post-apocalyptic.]]
* TheLastOfTheseIsNotLikeTheOthers: [[spoiler:Was never a part of Hope's Army like the others, nor was he allied with the Mastermind. The latter mentions that the Future Foundation "didn't get to (Sycamore) before this happened", implying that the group had ''intended'' to recruit him once.]]
* MealTicket: Cammy views him as this.
* MoralityPet: He's this to Schuldig and Lysandre ''in spades''.
** To the point where Schuldig's player has lampshaded that Sycamore's death would likely kick off the "Ginger Genocide Bad End."
--->''"What if Sycamore gets deathrolled this week?"''
--->''"You die. Every last one of you dies."''
* OfficialCouple: He and Lysandre ''finally'' snogged each other's faces off during week 6.
* RedOniBlueOni: Red Oni to Lysandre's Blue Oni - which is an inversion of their natural color schemes.
* ReallyGetsAround: Also hooked up with Cammy in week 5.
* ShipTease: With Lysandre. Also with Schuldig. ...And Cammy. But mostly with Lysandre, with whom he eventually ends up; passing notes, sharing beds, and long, heartfelt talks will do that.
* TeamDad: He takes care of everyone, especially the younger students, who start to see him as a parent.
* PrecisionFStrike: At the [[spoiler: case seven afterparty, trying to cheer Schuldig up.]]

!![[{{Literature/Animorphs}} Tobias Fangor]]
!!!Super High School Level Lookout

[[spoiler:One of the victims of Week 5 (case 4).]]

* CommonalityConnection: With Schuldig, having bonded over their mutual ability to communicate telepathically.
* HumanMomNonhumanDad: It's revealed in his canon and mid-way through the game that [[spoiler:his father was an alien. Elfangor, to be specific.]]
* MoralityPet: To Schuldig. [[spoiler: Good thing Schuldig still has Sycamore, after Tobias' murder.]]
* NeckSnap: [[spoiler: how he was murdered by Jay]]
* RunningGag: The ongoing debate over calling it "telepathy" versus "thought-speak", which ultimately culminated in ''[[BuffySpeak brainspeaky wordnoises]].''
* SecretLegacy: [[spoiler: Actually the son of Elfangor.]]
* TooGoodForThisSinfulEarth: The characters think so, too, [[spoiler:and mourn him as someone who never deserved this.]]
* TooHappyToLive: [[spoiler:Genre-savvy players called that his days were numbered when he was reunited with his birth father, Elfangor, ''on Father's Day no less''.]]

!![[VideoGame/AceAttorneyInvestigations Cammy Meele]]
!!!Super High School Level Translator

[[spoiler:Made it to the survivor pool.]]

* ChekhovsSkill: Her SHSL talent comes in useful twice: once during Tower of Babel week and once when investigating Henri's secret (since she went straight to figuring out the etymology of his name).
* KarmaHoudini: Her end goal is to escape to another world and become this. [[spoiler:Once she makes it to the survivor pool, it seems like she's succeeded... that is, until her status as a "dangerous criminal" is revealed in the final investigation, her MealTicket has an emotional breakdown, and the peaceful world she wanted to escape to has been razed to the ground.]]
* ObfuscatingStupidity: As in canon, she pretends to be a harmless, ditzy woman who falls asleep standing. She throws it off late in the game and decides to actively participate in the investigations and lay it all on the table.
* {{Squick}}: [[InvokedTrope Invoked]], when she discovers that [[spoiler:she'd hit on the ''Mastermind''.]]
* ThisLooksLikeAJobForAquaman: One week's motive had the TranslatorMicrobes break down.

!![[VideoGame/TheWorldEndsWithYou Daisukenojo "Beat" Bito]]
!!!Super High School Level Big Brother

[[spoiler:Made it to the survivor pool.]]

* ComingOfAgeStory: Taking the beginning steps from canon and ramping them up to 11 with two months of trauma. Beat goes from violent, untrustworthy distraction at best to [[spoiler: leading the charge in the last player-sparked trial and following Jimmy's footsteps as the tall blonde ahoge-growing teenager]].
* CrossingTheBurnedBridge: After the deaths of ''basically all of their important CR'', Sonico and Beat have started to repair their relationship. So much so that after [[spoiler: Beat was nearly electrocuted]] in the 9th trial, Sonico refused to leave him behind.
* DoNotCallMePaul: Hates his real name. [[spoiler:Though he actually stops insisting on this and even encourages people to call him "Daisukenojo" or "Daisuke" in the endgame arc.]]
* FirstNameBasis: Sonico starts calling him "Beat-kun" [[spoiler:and eventually "Daisuke-kun" during the ninth trial, crowning the peak of their negative-to-positive relationship since the start of the game.]]
** [[spoiler: Now more literal as of the Final Investigation. Enough so that it's even changed in the prose as well as dialogue.]]
--> [[spoiler:"If... if ya want... could you call me Daisukenojo from now on? O-or jus' Daisuke, since it's kinda long and dumb. Heh, kinda like me."]]
* FriendlyTarget: If you are a young girl/woman and are close to Beat, you might wanna count your days.
** It's enough of a problem that Monobear ''literally taunts'' Beat with this fact in order to try and goad him into a punishment.
-->"Upupupu~ What's the matter, ''big bro?'' Lost another little girl who was counting on you?"
** [[spoiler:After Week 9/Case 8, it seems 'adult male who has saved his life' is also added to the list of Beat-related death flags.]]
* {{Gesundheit}}: His response to hearing the name "Yveltal".
* HairAntennae: Beat's ascension to the protag slot comes with an awful self-done haircut that gives him not one but a handful of [[IdiotHair ahoge]].
* HeroicBSOD: His reaction to the second motive, though less the shell-shocked version and more the lashing out alternative. Freaked out and tried to take out Simon AND Sonico with a chair. The consequences of his actions are still being felt weeks later.
* IdiotHero: He is this for the group -- who mistakes "banned" for "banana" and tries to cut their own hair with medical scissors? -- and, despite spending most of the game [[CounterpartComparison compared to Mondo]], is eventually declared "this round's protagonist".
* IncestSubtext: While done jokingly, Inaba HAS accused him of being a siscon. The joke continues [=OOCly=] as well.
* ImportantHaircut: After his hair started getting shaggy he tried to cut it himself, only to be discovered by Naomi, who in a motherly gesture finished it for him. [[spoiler: She was murdered later that night as the victim of the ninth trial. And since it wasn't done professionally/could only be SO rescued from Beat's chop job it now sports a few familiar cowlicks...]]
* KnightTemplarBigBrother: Along with his actions in canon, he's outright stated to Elfangor that he would be willing to sacrifice everyone in the school to save Rhyme if it comes down to it.
* LetsGetDangerous: [[spoiler: ALL OF THE NINTH TRIAL, where he stands up for himself and the whole group and reveals himself to be, while still dense, able to figure out Monobear's scheme and refusing to let anyone else die.]]
* OddFriendship: With Schuldig, of all people, who seems to understand his reckless tendencies better than most. Also kind of a SempaiKohai relationship, following [[spoiler: Hope's capture]].
* OnlyFriend: To Dan, taking a bit of Chris' role from Dan's canon. Though Cynthia makes attempts to get through to Dan as well.
** [[spoiler: Enough so that while most of the class doubted Beat was the killer of Case 8, Dan was the only one that defended him 100% from the start. Loudly.]]
** [[spoiler: And when Dan's SanitySlippage was shown in the 9th trial Beat was enraged at how they all had treated him. Including himself for not doing enough.]]
* PersonaNonGrata: He just keeps making stupid comments and subsequently getting banned from things.
* RejectedApology: While Simon largely forgave him for the chair incident, and Betty and him had managed a tense understanding, Sonico (and through her, Adachi) refuse to have anything to do with Beat. Considering he keeps yelling or fleeing every time he tries, her stance is understandable.
* SheIsNotMyGirlfriend: A number of people thought "partner" meant something else.
* SmartBall: He does have his surprise moments of brilliance, being the one to find out how [[spoiler: Hope was captured]] as well as how to uncover the messages in the 7th floor rooms. All coming to a head when [[spoiler: he has a large part in outing Adachi as Case 8's killer.]]
* SympathyForTheDevil: [[spoiler: A good hunk of the Case 8 Afterparty was Beat explaining Adachi's motivations to Sonico through the lens of his own experiences. According to Adachi's player he was eerily close more often then not. During a concurent thread with Schuldig he admits that the fact the can understand Adachi's actions ''terrifies'' him.]]

!![[WesternAnimation/DanVs Dan]]
!!!Super High School Level Firebug

[[spoiler: A victim in Week 10 (case 9), as well as a culprit.]]

* HatesEveryoneEqually: When he was called out on calling the sweet, virginal, self-loathing, uber-religious girl raised by nuns a "whore" and causing her to freak out, he didn't even realize that it was that big of a deal for her, nor did he really care too much. To Dan, everyone deserves every expletive.
* IntentionalEngrishForFunny: When the translation factor broke down, Dan ended up in the kitchen with Beat, who spoke very little English, and worked himself up into a rage where he ended up repeating all of Beat's interesting attempts at communicating with him.
-->Yes! Yes! Dan mad all! DAN MAD ALL DAN MAD ALL!
* HiddenDepths: He's a huge Shakespeare fan, even if he's still a jerk when he talks about it. [[spoiler: He's also an excellent blacksmith, able to create a sword within a couple hours, without anyone noticing.]]
* {{Jerkass}}: And proud of it, being rude and hateful to everyone because he doesn't think they'd want to be his friends anyway.
* JerkassHasAPoint: Occasionally comes up with good ideas and even pointed out one culprit when everyone automatically believed their innocence. This is usually lampshaded.
* JerkassWoobie: [[spoiler:His revenge list shows the sheer ''extent'' of his psychological problems and how badly he needed friends.]]
* ManChild: Dan is not the most mature of people and tends to throw tantrums.
* PetTheDog: His Father's Day regain was a card from his almost-adopted son Dennis. It even had a pawprint from his kitten on it, too.
* PyroManiac: He's not SHSL ''Firebug'' for nothing.
* SanitySlippage: [[spoiler:While not exactly stable in the first place, his list shows his slow descent into paranoia and despair as the murders continued.]]
* SirSwearsALot: And he doesn't even get it if someone complains.

!![[VideoGame/TraumaCenter Naomi Kimishima]]
!!!Super High School Level Pathologist

[[spoiler: A victim in Week 10 (case 9).]]

* TheCoroner: She is a Medical Examiner.
* EyeScream: [[spoiler:Her left eye is damaged by shrapnel after Monobear explodes during Week 4.]]

* HeroicBSOD: [[spoiler:Finding {...} resulted in this. She blames herself for leaving him vulnerable despite him actually requesting to be alone.]]
* LikeADaughterToMe: She loves Anna as though she were her own. [[spoiler: She tells her as much in a [[DeadManWriting letter to her written just before she died.]]]]
* TheMedic: Acts as the school's nurse out of an obligation to keep everyone healthy. [[spoiler:She was the team medic in Hope's Army as well.]]
* NonFatalExplosion: [[spoiler:Subverted. Naomi is injured in an attempt to dismantle a questionably idle Monobear.]]
* OfficialCouple: Together with {...} as of Week 7. [[BoyMeetsGhoul 'Corpse Whisperer' indeed.]]
* StudentAndMasterTeam: Starting in Week 4, she's the "Master" to Anna.
* TheTalk: Gives this lecture to several students with Cecil.
* ThousandOrigamiCranes: Begins folding cranes after the first case for the deceased students and continues doing so for each subsequent case. [[spoiler: Stops folding them after finishing {...}'s own one thousand following the eighth trial.]]

!![[Podcast/WelcomeToNightVale Cecil Palmer]]
!!!Super High School Level Radio Host

[[spoiler: The culprit of case 5.]]

* OurAngelsAreDifferent: As soon as he learns that one of his fellow students is an angel, he starts calling him "Erica".
* BadassBaritone: Voiced by [[TheDanza Cecil]] Baldwin.
* BreadEggsMilkSquick: His Student Profile lists his likes as "brandy, cars, [[HumanSacrifice ritual sacrifice]], Westerns." This is actually a plot point during the third trial.
* CloudCuckooLander: May or may not actually be one in terms of personality, but definitely comes off as one to most of the other students.
* ConditionedToAcceptHorror: As the resident Night Valean, he comes from a CrapsackWorld.
* DarkIsNotEvil: He may live in a horror land and be associated with death and monsters, but he's a pretty nice guy.
* FinalSpeech: [[spoiler:Used his last words to spur on the students and call out the Headmaster... too bad he wasn't looking at the right guy.]]
* IgnoranceIsBliss: Has no memories of anything that happened during or after [[WhamEpisode "Yellow Helicopters"]].
* NightmareFuelStationAttendant: [[invoked]] To the other characters, who can only imagine where he comes from and what he gets up to.
* PsychicPowers: Had remote viewing abilities that let him report on events going on around town in his own canon. Isn't able to use them while in Hope's Peak.

!![[VideoGame/FireEmblemTellius Ike]]
!!!Super High School Level Hero

[[spoiler: The culprit of Case 3.]]

* AwesomeMcCoolname: The last name given to him on his student profile is "Rockoff".
* WhatTheHellHero: [[spoiler:Killed Homura. Many characters found this not very Heroic even if they did understand his reasoning.]]

!![[{{VideoGame/Persona4}} Tohru Adachi]]
!!!Super High School Level Rookie Cop

[[spoiler:The true, or "second", mole and the culprit of Week 9 (Case 8).]]

* {{Adorkable}}: To a ''ridiculous'' degree. He fails hard at a lot of things and can be very silly.
* TheAtoner: For both his canon actions and in-game actions now.
* AscendedMeme: Cabbages are now this for him in canon, so of course they had to come up in the game at least ''once''. He actually talks to them and believes they're his "friends" during the Monkey Fever event.
* BeneathTheMask: Was always a given considering it's the very theme of his canon but [[spoiler:Case 8 revealed just how messed up and two faced he actually is under his dorky exterior.]]
* BecomingTheMask: [[spoiler:An unintended effect of murder school that helped finally push him off the edge.]]
* ButtMonkey: Very quickly shaped up to be one, with a lot of events seemingly designed to humiliate him in public.
* CoveredWithScars: Discovered in week 1 that he's got several scars all over his body that he doesn't remember receiving at all.
* CriminalAmnesiac: With the round's memory loss element, [[spoiler:he forgets any remorse or attachment he grew later on in his canon. This led to him becoming the mole.]]
* CryLaughing: Did this after [[spoiler:killing {...}, who was his best friend and partner.]]
* DistressedDude: Had to be saved ''twice'' in one day by Naomi during Case 7. Once from Audrey III during the investigation and then again from [[spoiler: Monobear losing his shit ''right next to him'' when Kirei died before his execution.]] Both times he just froze up.
** Although the second time at least [[spoiler:it was because Monobear and him were at the time still on good terms. So it was more of a moment of concern for his "boss" on Adachi's part.]]
* FirstNameBasis: Gives Sonico permission to call him "Tohru" during week 2. Also lets Cynthia get away with this but mostly because he never found the right time to talk to her about it.
* GoodScarsEvilScars: Has a number of ominous-looking scars that he doesn't remember receiving. [[spoiler:Turns out that they're from his boss battle with the Investigation Team. The large one in particular is from his Persona getting bisected at the torso in the anime.]]
* HeelFaceDoorSlam: [[spoiler:In Week 9, he remembered being told that it wasn't too late for him and that he could change. This prompted him to examine everything he'd been doing up to that point and try to change, but when he tried to quit being Monobear's mole, he was instead forced into a SadisticChoice, and asking {...} what to do only frustrated him to the point where his rage took over; when he realized he'd killed his friend, he decided that he'd ''be'' a villain, then, and went forward with the plan to frame Beat for the crime.]]
* HiddenDepths: Constantly comes off as bumbling or stupid, but proved himself to be a capable detective on a couple of cases. Other people started noticing this too, much to his surprise.
* HonoraryUncle: Not to anyone specifically in game, but despite having no kids of his own he still received a Father's Day regain... from Nanako Dojima, his partner's daughter. The header for the regain comment said "Happy Weird Uncle Day".
* IronicEcho: [[spoiler:"You can still start over."]] Ends up doubling as an [[spoiler: internal MadnessMantra when he finally snaps in the case 8 murder log.]]
* LastNameBasis: Introduced himself only by his last name to most people; to find his first name you would have had to look at his Student Profile.
* MoralDilemma: And ''how''.
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: He certainly doesn't feel guilty for ''everything'' he's done, even if he really, really should, but [[spoiler:killing his friend and partner was not exactly what he'd wanted]].
* NamesTheSame: With FruitsBasket's Tohru Honda, which becomes a plot point in the second trial.
* OfficialCouple: He asked Sonico out on a date during week 3, but they became official for sure by the end of week 4.
* OlderThanTheyLook: While not to the same extent as Hanbei, you'd still never guess just by looking at him that the guy's almost ''30''. "Tohru Adachi is nearly 30 years old" even turned into an OOC RunningGag, usually said whenever he's being a ManChild.
* OneNoteCook: Tamagoyaki became his one note dish after Sonico taught him how in week 8. During week 9 he kept attempting it on his own with varying results. According to his player though [[spoiler:he finally got it right the morning of the day he died.]]
* PoliceAreUseless: Not surprising, given the setting. Still tries to do his part as a police officer now and then, such as trying to stop the underage characters from drinking alcohol. It isn't very effective.
* TrashOfTheTitans: By the end of the game, Adachi's room is a disaster zone, most of the mess apparently caused [[spoiler:during the time he holed himself up in his room prior to his murdering {...}.]] He even left his [[spoiler:murder weapon]] out in the open on his desk for others to see!
** Shortly after the game ended, the Persona 4 Golden anime jossed the idea that Adachi would be a messy slob, instead showing his actual apartment to be [[http://i.imgur.com/M9PRwMJ.jpg surprisingly neat and tidy]], suggesting he might be more of a NeatFreak than his appearance would lead you to believe. This makes the state of his room during week 9 into some unintentional FridgeHorror:. [[spoiler:it only further shows just how badly that week was messing him up.]]
* YouCantGoHomeAgain: [[spoiler:Even if he'd wanted to -- he's in the Future Foundation's custody and eventually chooses to settle down in Kalos.]]
* VillainousBreakdown: [[spoiler:During his trial. ''Big time''.]]
--->'''Adachi''': [[spoiler:Just hate me, okay!? Hate me for the murderer I am! That's easier on everyone!]]
* ZeroApprovalGambit: [[spoiler:Attempts this during his trial, to make it easier for the other students to vote for him. How well it actually worked is debatable.]]

!![[VisualNovel/FateStayNight Kirei Kotomine]]
!!!Super High School Level Exorcist

[[spoiler: The culprit of Case 7.]]

* AmnesiacsAreInnocent: Started with no recollection of half of ''LightNovel/FateZero'' or any of VisualNovel/FateStayNight.
* AtLeastIAdmitIt: [[spoiler:When he's cornered as the murderer in Case 7's trial, he laughs and throws it back at the other students: didn't ''they'' kill, too, by voting to execute all the guilty students?]]
* BadassBaritone: CrispinFreeman or JojiNakata, take your pick.
* BiggerBad: [[spoiler: Outdoes everyone in sheer strength and capacity for evil to the point where the mastermind took precautions against him. ''After he was dead''. See DeathIsCheap below.]]
* DeadManWriting: [[spoiler:[[http://blackmass.dreamwidth.org/997.html To Schuldig.]] ]]
* DeadpanSnarker: Producing some of the best lines in the game.
* DeathIsCheap: [[spoiler:'Died' once in ''LightNovel/FateZero'' and once in ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight''. After case 7, players ''doubted his third death would stick''. ]]
** [[spoiler: In-universe, acknowledged in the Graduation trial by Lysandre, [[http://danganroleplay.dreamwidth.org/22311.html?thread=16945191#cmt16945191 who was even expecting him to crash the final trial and made provisions for it just in case.]]]]
* DesperatelyLookingForAPurposeInLife: He doesn't know why he was born the way he was or what he should do with his life.
* DissonantSerenity: Unusually calm about the 'murder your classmates to leave' idea.
* TheDreaded: [[spoiler:''By the Mastermind.'']]
* EmptyEyes: Permanently, which freaks some people out.
* FakeKillScare: When he was found unconscious, it was treated in-game as a corpse discovery until it turned out he was alive. [[spoiler:Well, sort of. He was already kind of dead to begin with and he'd received a [[NormallyIWouldBeDeadNow fatal wound]] on top of that.]]
* FromNobodyToNightmare: He went from an amicable if quietly unsettling amnesiac in Week 1 to [[http://danganroleplay.dreamwidth.org/19020.html?thread=14967116#cmt14967116 this]] in Week 8. [[spoiler: Debatable, since he was an EmpoweredBadassNormal from the start.]]
* HeartTrauma: ''And how.'' [[spoiler: It's been replaced by [[GodOfEvil Angra Mainyu]].]]
* HellIsThatNoise: [[spoiler: Terrifyingly, his [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jKj8ThKVtso#t=426 laughing.]] ]]
* HeelRealization: [[spoiler: Had one years ago, but underlined it when he willingly voted for himself in Inaba and Fujimoto's murder.]]
* ItAmusedMe: [[spoiler:He killed his victims because he was bored of the routine of murder school and only suffering made him happy.]]
* KarmaHoudini: [[spoiler: Dies right before Monobear can execute him.]]
* NightmareFuelStationAttendant: Especially after [[spoiler: nonchalantly revealing the unholy mass of shadows where his heart should have been.]]
* TheOnlyOneAllowedToDefeatYou: Basically his response to [[spoiler: Lysandre's]] death after the fifth trial.
* ReluctantPsycho: [[spoiler:It didn't last. Once he got his memories back, he was very happy to be unable to care about anything but misfortune.]]
* StepfordSmiler: Almost ''constantly''.
* TokenEvilTeammate: [[spoiler:There are a few other examples, but Kirei seems to be unsettling even to the other less than moral 'students'. Even in the end, everyone is confused as to why Kirei was on ''anything'' resembling a "good side", himself especially.]]
--> [[spoiler: '''Kirei:''' If I actually enjoyed myself yesterday, you would be dead and I'd have been executed.]]
* TokenReligiousTeammate: Him and Homura, and she goes from very religious to cynical nonbeliever to... [[AGodAmI well.]]
* VillainousFriendship: With Schuldig. Very, ''very'' close to bordering on UnholyMatrimony.
* VillainWithGoodPublicity: Momentarily became this [=OOCly=] after kicking Dan into a pool full of tea.
-->'...and Kirei Kotomine becoming a hero of the people for a brief, shining moment...'

!![[Literature/ExquisiteCorpse Vinh Tran]]
!!!Super High School Level Transience

[[spoiler:The victim of case 1.]]

* TheCanKickedHim: [[spoiler:Found dead on the toilet.]]
* CounterpartComparison: {{invoked}} A promiscuous, vulgar, and pessimistic character who doesn't care what others think, Tran was pegged as Round 2's Madison. [[spoiler:Aside from being the first death instead of part of the survivor pool, that is.]] This is brought up [[InUniverse ICly]] [[spoiler:in the epi-log between the characters themselves]].
* DullSurprise: Upon [[spoiler:coming BackFromTheDead]]. He was high at the time.
* MeaningfulName: And related title. [[spoiler:As the first victim of the season, he certainly was the most transient.]]
* MistakenForAfterlife: When he learned what the Game actually was, he thought Hope's Peak was the afterlife and that they were ''all'' dead.
* MistakenForSubculture: Took every term related to the Reapers' Game as relating to some kind of weird sex group.
* SacrificialLamb: [[spoiler:As the first victim.]]
* SlippingAMickey: Being the resident drug dealer, Tran assumes that this is how they got kidnapped.
* YouCantGoHomeAgain: His home situation is... something to avoid, but he'd rather not think of that.
--> "He likes pretending he can still go back to New Orleans."

!![[{{Literature/Animorphs}} Elfangor-Sirinial-Shamtul]]
!!!Super High School Level Prince

[[spoiler: One of the culprits in Week 5 (Case 4).]]

* BumblingDad: He's usually dignified, but he has no idea how to act like an authority figure to the kids who need a parent, [[spoiler:particularly his actual kid]].
* ExitPursuedByABear: [[spoiler:His execution, which was also a callback to Tobias' girlfriend, Rachel.]]
* FaceDeathWithDignity: [[spoiler:He doesn't try to fight or run, just stands there accepting it.]]
* FamilyHonor: Andalites, being basically four-legged telepathic space samurai, have this in spades.
** [[spoiler: Ultimately his motive for murdering Jay to avenge his son.]]
* HumanityIsInfectious: Spent a lot of time in human morph.
* LastRequest: A few.
** [[spoiler: Asked Sycamore to not let [Jay and Tobias', along with all the other culprits/victims before]'s deaths be in vain]]
** [[spoiler: Asked Schuldig to find Tobias' friends (including Elfangor's own brother, Aximili) and tell them what happened.]]
---> [[spoiler: Tell them he made his father proud.]]
* OutlivingOnesOffspring: [[spoiler:Only until he was executed later for avenging his son's murder.]]
* TooHappyToLive: [[spoiler:Genre-savvy players pegged him as the week's culprit when Tobias turned up dead ''the week after Father's Day'', when they had found out the truth about their relationship.]]
* WouldHurtAChild: [[spoiler:Jay was ''16''. In all fairness, though, Elfangor found him immediately after Jay had murdered Tobias, who was ''even younger''.]]

!![[Webcomic/HannaIsNotABoysName {...}]]
!!!Super High School Level Undead

[[spoiler:The victim of Week 9 (Case 8).]]

* AccidentalMisnaming: Virtually guaranteed thanks to [=HiNaBN=]'s abrupt non-ending and the NoNameGiven applied in canon. The name associated with him on his student profile is "Dick Walker".
* BigBrotherInstinct: Toward some of the younger students (namely Sonico, Anna and Beat) with a heavy dash of TeamMom.
* GlowingEyelightsOfUndeath: Caused both Cynthia and Ike to mistake him for a Risen when they first met him.
* GoodScarsEvilScars: Averted; he's covered in scars including an '''autopsy scar and multiple stab wounds on his back''' (pretty much all of which were seen by anyone at the King's Game in Week 5 after Naomi dared him to get naked). All are closed with thick black thread.
* LosingYourHead: [[spoiler:Became little more than a head Week 7. Ended up being carried around by Naomi for the weeks following.]]
* OccultDetective: A zombie who investigates supernatural mysteries.
* OfficialCouple: Beginning in Week 7 with Naomi. [[spoiler:They eventually move in together and raise their kids in Kalos.]]
* OnlySaneMan: Everyone else is immature, secretly evil, wallowing in their own angst, or some combination of the three.
* ReviveKillsZombie: [[spoiler:Averted. It instead makes him alive again rather than undead.]]
* StealthPun: The name given on his student ID literally means ''Detective Zombie''.
* TheStoic: And not the only one in these parts. (Looking at you, Lysandre.)

!![[VideoGame/SamuraiWarriors Hanbei Takenaka]]
!!!Super High School Level Tactician

[[spoiler: The victim of Case 5.]]

* ChunkySalsaRule: [[spoiler:So much so that even the mods used the phrase to describe the mess where his head used to be.]] And then Cynthia slipped and fell in it...
* FishOutOfTemporalWater: Most characters were from far after his time and many knew his historical significance.
* TheFutureIsShocking: He will never get used to modern people's propensity towards obscure dirty jokes.
* NiceHat: He never gets rid of it.
* OlderThanTheyLook: No, really, he's not twelve.
* ObfuscatingStupidity: Supposed to be a brilliant strategist, but doesn't act like it. Sometimes, it's [[GoneToTheFuture not on purpose]], though.
** Used this to his advantage when he [[spoiler: made saltpeter out of modern ingredients,]] leading some of his classmates to believe he couldn't possibly have [[spoiler: made the bomb that killed him]] himself.
* YourHeadASplode: [[spoiler:Blew up his own head.]]

!![[LightNovel/KokoroConnect Himeko Inaba]]
!!!Super High School Level Analyst

[[spoiler: One of the victims of Case 7.]]

* DefrostingIceQueen: Brought from after she'd defrosted in canon but memory-wiped to before, so she could defrost all over again.
* DyingClue: [[spoiler:"Kotozute".]]
* EmbarrassingNickname: Brought from canon as her username and finally used in-game in the epi-log.
* EvilLaugh: Does it a few times, apparently solely to freak people out.
* ICanLiveWithThat: When the Mastermind calls the class and people at large selfish and short-sighted, she'll admit that ''she'' is, and she's okay with that.
* InSeriesNickname: Has a couple in canon, but Adachi always called her Ine-chan (referring to the first character of her name) to avoid confusion with the town of the same name that he lived in.
* LastNameBasis: Hates her first name, so was only ever known this way. The only one allowed to use her first name is [[spoiler: Sonico and only after Inaba died.]]

!!Miriam Tristesse
!!!Super High School Level Mirror

[[spoiler:The culprit of case 1.]]

* BewareTheQuietOnes: Miriam is shy and never speaks up much. [[spoiler:She was almost completely silent in her own investigation and trial, both in hopes that she'd get away with it and out of guilt.]]
* BitterAlmonds: [[spoiler:How she killed Vinh Tran.]]
* EnemyWithin: Her "original", Maryam. She's stated to be dead, but takes over Miriam's body once, belittles her constantly in the back of her mind, and apparently created Miriam [[GrandTheftMe just to use her as a new body]].
* MasterOfIllusion: Though she hides those powers out of shame.
* ShipTease: With Jay, who [[spoiler:stands up to Maryam and pushes Miriam to fight back and take her life for her own]]. The ship isn't confirmed by the end, but the last time we see them, the other girls are teasing Miriam about it and she's blushing at the thought of Jay noticing her.
* WhatMeasureIsANonUnique: [[spoiler: As a reflection, this is the nature of Miriam's desire to keep her secret secret - she believed she would be considered less valuable.]]
* YamatoNadeshiko: Came off as this to others.

!![[Anime/WeissKreuz Schuldig]]
!!!Super High School Level Telepath

[[spoiler:Made it to the survivor pool.]]

* ArcWords: More like Arc Circumstances - being on the wrong floor of the school to prevent a tragedy.
* ComingOfAgeStory: His relationship with Lysandre boils down to one of these, starting from Schuldig accepting Lysandre as his leader in Week 1 and [[spoiler: growing into one himself by the Graduation Exam.]]
--> [[spoiler: "So let's see if I'm worth it, Lysandre. Your pride ''and'' your title."]]
* ExactWords: Though not quite as much of a RulesLawyer as Lysandre, Schuldig's managed to find a few ways of bending the school rules this way.
* HowDareYouDieOnMe: Nearly launched into this upon discovering Kirei's body. [[spoiler: He was only unconscious.]]
** Of course, then [[spoiler: Kirei died on him anyway, a few hours later at the trial.]]
* ImpossiblyTackyClothes: Remarked upon by fellow classmates so often it's become a RunningGag.
** Also a case of SerialEscalation: the outfit he wears to each Class Trial is worse than the last week's. Considering that he wore a women's swimsuit to the first, it's a hard thing to do. To the third class trial, he wore ''Tobias''. [[spoiler:And in the epilogue, he wore Monobear.]]
* JerkassHasAPoint: ''And how''. Often takes the form of a TheReasonYouSuckSpeech.
** [[spoiler: At the ninth trial, he delivered one that proved to be more of a "The Reason ''We'' Suck" Speech.]]
* NarrativeProfanityFilter: Refers to [[spoiler:Junko, whom he's only ever heard about,]] as a "[REDACTED]".
* NoodleImplements: "I also want the biggest cardboard box you've got, a curtain rod, a pair of cardboard tubes from those rolls of Christmas wrapping paper, and about five rolls of duct tape."
* PragmaticVillainy: Despite having no qualms about the ''act'' of killing someone, Schuldig frequently acknowledges that he couldn't graduate without throwing the handful of people he ''does'' like under the bus as well, and therefore won't.
* RulesLawyer: Ascended by the end of Week 7. And looks as though he's training Anna to be one as well...
* TeamDad: Started past the point of [[spoiler: Lysandre's death]]. Seems pretty confirmed by the end of Week 9, as he looks out for everyone else.
* TheTease: Play-flirts with pretty much all his friends and claims to ship them as well.
* TryNotToDie: He's heard this from a ''lot'' of people, many of whom ended up dead themselves.
* UnfortunateNames: Translates to 'Guilty Butcher'. ''In a game about murder''.
** Which leads to Cammy (the resident ''Franchise/AceAttorney'' character) being ''certain'' he's gonna be the first murderer, because he's got the right kind of name.
** He also points it out himself. "When everyone calls you guilty just by saying your name..."
* VillainousFriendship: With Kirei, in a way. After [[spoiler:Kirei's execution]] and various adventures involving crayon-scrawled greeting cards and a cardboard box, he's also becoming a FriendlyEnemy of ''Monobear''.
** As of the epic dance battle in week 10, Schuldig's friendship with Monobear has easily entrenched itself firmly in GoKartingWithBowser territory.

!![[Anime/PonyoOnTheCliffByTheSea Fujimoto]]
!!!Super High School Level Wizard

[[spoiler: One of the victims of Case 7.]]

* AscendedMeme: After weeks of being referred to OOCly as "Seadad", it finally showed up in-character. [[spoiler: And then he died and became Sea''dead''.]]
* KillAllHumans: His DarkSecret was his desire to do this, which he eventually developed out of.
* LeaningOnTheFourthWall: Apparently Fujimoto is a big fan of [[{{Film/Taken}} Taken]]. Also doubles as a ShoutOut.
* MeaningfulName: The last name given to him on his student profile is Nanaumi. While there's no written kanji associated with it, it might be read "seven seas", though that would usually be read as "Nanami".
* RunningGag: Fujimoto wearing sandwich bags filled with water as shoes.

!![[Manga/FruitsBasket Saki Hanajima]]
!!!Super High School Level Empath

[[spoiler:The culprit of case 2.]]

* DullSurprise: When the second body is found and everyone's freaking out, her only response is "How unpleasant..." and musing about not getting refreshments. [[spoiler:This really should have tipped everyone off.]]
* NamesTheSame: With [[{{VideoGame/Persona4}} Persona 4]]'s Saki Konishi, which comes up in the second trial.

!!Monobear

* ActionBomb: Monobears explode if damaged.
* EvilLaugh: "Upupupu~"
* KillerTeddyBear: Though usually he's trying to make other people kill one another instead, he has been responsible personally for a number of deaths.
* LoopholeAbuse: ''Especially'' near the ends of both rounds. In both, he tries to use his abilities as Headmaster [[spoiler:(and certain other abilities -- dead student data in Round 1, his inserting himself as a student in Round 2)]] to frame an optimistic hero type for a murder he arranged, albeit in different ways.

'''Round One'''

* ADogNamedDog: Considering Round 2 [[spoiler:and its Monobear deciding that "Monobear" is just a name for what they ''are'', that makes Round 1's Monobear this.]]
* ContagiousAI: [[spoiler:Created to infect ''everything'' with despair by downloading Junko into people's brains.]]
* EvilIsPetty: Rigged a trial to try and convict an innocent person and later said it was because he was bored.
* SignificantBirthdate: Christmas, naturally. [[spoiler:It's still Junko behind there, after all.]]

'''Round Two'''

* ExactWords: "I only hire one mole at a time." [[spoiler:There was a second, but the first had approached him himself.]] This comes back later as a ChekhovsBoomerang, when [[spoiler:it turns out that there really was only one mole. The first was the Mastermind casting suspicion off himself.]]
* GoKartingWithBowser: With Schuldig, of all people, and Beat by week 10. [[spoiler: To the point where Beat threatening not to play with him anymore actually led to a straight answer from the sadistic bear.]]
* VillainsOutShopping: When he's not plotting motives and running trials, as of Round Two Monobear has seemed willing to play games with the students.
** It's been noted by a few characters that Monobear is showing several CreepyChild tendencies this time around. It makes you wonder...

'''Disney Ronpa'''

* AristocratsAreEvil: This one is apparently a Lord ([[AuthorityInNameOnly or thinks he is]]) and lives in a castle.
* EvilCounterpart: Viewed as Pooh's by some of the students.
* HorrifyingTheHorror: His idea of fun is enough to freak out even the "scary" students. Except Bill.
* MakeWayForTheNewVillains: [[http://danganroleplay.dreamwidth.org/27935.html?thread=20635679#cmt20635679 Implies]] that he bumped off or demoted Chernabog.

[[folder:??? (Round 2)]]

Endgame spoilers.

!!Henri Armael

A student with no title. [[spoiler:Actually Monobear, having given himself a name and a student identity; for main character tropes unrelated to this reveal, see the "Round 2" section under "Monobear".]]

* AIIsACrapshoot: [[spoiler:Started out as a perfect AI copy of Monobear. Then developed loneliness and wanted to play less fatal games too.]]
* AmbiguousInnocence: Treats the murder game as a game like any other.
* ButNowIMustGo: In the end, despite cries for an explanation. Then it turns out that he just [[spoiler:went back to the main computer when the power went out.]]
* CreepyChild: A happy kid whose idea of fun isn't always innocent or safe...
* CreepyCute: He's absolutely ''adorable'' [[spoiler: despite being, y'know, Monobear.]]
* CuteMachines: [[spoiler:Being a robot and all.]]
* EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep: [[spoiler:Made up his own name and decided that "Monobear" was just his species name.]]
* FunSize: Sort of. [[spoiler: The disarmed body that he occupies when the survivors take him with them is noted to be smaller and lighter than the regular Monobear bodies.]]
* TheGlomp: In his tearful reunion with his father.
* MeaningfulName: [[spoiler:"King Bear Prince". He's a bear and his creator is a descendant of deposed royalty who introduced himself in-game as a prince. For bonus points, it's also French. Or should we say Kalosian?]]
** The in-universe explanation stems from [[spoiler:one of the "games" he played with Schuldig - when they were playing pirates, he styled himself Captain Henry E''bear''y. Henry Every is widely considered to basically be the winner of piracy, if such a title can be bestowed, since he made off with one of the most infamous hauls in history and ''was never arrested or killed''. Pretty big dreams for a little bear.]]
* MissingMom: The reason he's closer to his father, despite often imagining what she was like and using arts-and-crafts supplies to draw pictures of himself with her and reconstruct her stuff. In the ending log, he complains, "I can't even remember her!" [[spoiler:"Her" being ''Junko'', who was responsible for much of his construction and after whom the Headmaster Protocol his initial personality followed was modelled.]]
* NotEvilJustMisunderstood: Sort of. He ''is'' pretty evil [[spoiler:the way he was programmed. The traits he developed on his own, however, are earnest and innocent.]]
** It's later revealed that [[spoiler:he was following the "Headmaster protocols" during the game, which are separate from his main programming and require an access code from Lysandre to activate.]] It was only after [[spoiler:Lysandre was able to help out masterminding behind the scenes that he was able to express his natural, curious programming.]] This makes sense because [[spoiler:the virus that Henri is programmed off of originally cribbed off of the code for Miss Usami.]]
* SempaiKohai: Upon finding Henri's happy drawings of [[spoiler:Monobear and Junko]], Beat theorizes that Henri idolizes [[spoiler:Junko as the leader of SHSL Despair]] and largely wants senpai to notice him.
* SignificantAnagram: The name also rearranges to "Alien Harmer", which would certainly apply to someone involved in a plot to pull people from their worlds into a killing game. [[spoiler:Plus his creator's victim last round was an alien.]]
* YouAreNotAlone: In a way, invokes this with [[spoiler:his "father," Lysandre]] during their execution. Also doubles as a callback to the round's CentralTheme: [[spoiler:even ''Monobear'' is capable of alleviating the suffering of others.]]

!!The Mastermind ([[spoiler:Lysandre "Kokinos"]])
!!![[spoiler:Super High School Level Leader]]

For main story character tropes, see [[spoiler:the "Round 2" section under "Lysandre".]]

* AtLeastIAdmitIt: "The blood on my hands is undeniable, but are you willing to take responsibility for that which covers yours?"
* EnemyMine: [[spoiler:Lysandre hated Junko too and he blamed her for his predicament just as much as he blamed the Future Foundation, but having her in his head brought an extremely useful way for them both to put aside their differences to get revenge on the latter.]]
* FaceDeathWithDignity: [[spoiler:He walks to the guillotine and kneels of his own volition. No dragging, force, or coercion required.]]
* GoodScarsEvilScars: Has three slashes on their face.
* HeelFaceMole: [[spoiler:Over the course of two games.]]
* HeroicWillpower: Heavily implied to be the reason [[spoiler: the Junko virus was unable to take total control of him and eventually faded away.]]
* HijackedByGanon: Double subverted. [[spoiler:The Junko virus downloaded itself into Lysandre's brain, but she didn't overwrite or overtake him, only shared headspace with him. By the time of the final trial, she's already gone.]]
* LastNameBasis: With [[spoiler:former headmate "Miss Enoshima".]]
* LoveInterestTraitor: [[spoiler:To Sycamore, whom he truly loved and couldn't bear to kill, but knew he couldn't turn or leave alone, hence his putting him into the murder game.]]
* OffingTheOffspring: Accused of this by Beat in the final trial. [[spoiler:He didn't, and he only reveals this in the end.]]
* OurDragonsAreDifferent: The Mastermind's non-Monobear [[TheDragon Dragon]] is an ''actual'' dragon [[spoiler:in all but type]]. This was only a small part of the MassOhCrap at their reveal.
* ProtectedByAChild: [[spoiler:Henri rigged the last PC-death trial to try and kill everyone only because he was afraid they'd find and hurt the Mastermind.]]
* RedAndBlackAndEvilAllOver: Much like the original Mastermind's fashion sense. [[spoiler:Except he already dressed that way and it's not inspired by Junko.]]
* SoProudOfYou: A very twisted version to the survivors in the Graduation Exam. The Mastermind is proud that they managed to make it through the meat grinder and are thus the "chosen ones".
* VisionaryVillain: Wants to "improve" the multiverse by getting rid of the weak and selfish, and the killing game is only one of their plans to do this.

!![[spoiler:[[VideoGame/PokemonXAndY Serena]]]]

[[spoiler: Sycamore's student and Lysandre's once-enemy. She saved the region once before (or at least attempted, as Lysandre was pulled into Round 1 at that moment), but was unable to stop him a second time. However, thanks to receiving a psychic warning, she managed to survive the Ultimate Weapon.]]

* CultureClash: Extremely confused about the students' worlds and how they work.
* DeadHatShot: [[spoiler:In one of Sycamore's motive videos, she was implied to have died with a video of her hat torn up and laying in a pool of blood. Though the footage was faked, when she appears in the ending log, she has indeed lost her hat.]]
* ForWantOfANail: The events of Round 1 seriously derailed her canon. [[spoiler:Even if you take into account that Lysandre likely disappeared just as she was going to fight him and she still got the credit and presume that the second Incident happened post-canon, a few things are still certain: Serena did not capture Yveltal or destroy the Ultimate Weapon (either of which would have prevented the Incident) and both player character canonmates and the narration state that Diantha is still the Champion, thus Serena never dethroned her. ...Well, and then there's the whole "apocalypse actually happening" thing.]]
* HairOfGoldHeartOfGold: [[spoiler:Despite being a customizable character in the game, here she's depicted with the appearance she has in official art.]]
* YouAreTooLate: [[spoiler:She led the Future Foundation rescue party to the Ultimate Weapon ''after'' everyone had finally escaped.]]
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Disney Ronpa Characters]]

Due to this being a gimmick round, endgame [=NPCs=] are included in this folder rather than a separate one. Anna returns from Round 2 in addition to the characters below.

!![[Disney/TheLittleMermaid Ariel]]
!!!Super High School Level Collector

[[spoiler:Made it to the survivor pool.]]

* AlienAmongUs: Trying to pass herself off as human while tripping over her own legs, marvelling at food, and mixing up animals.
* CollectorOfTheStrange: You thought she was bad in canon? She's hoarding condiments and coffee machines in her room and wants one of everything interesting she can find.
* CovertPervert: She really appreciated the first "everybody strip" of the round...
* CryLaughing: At the first murderer's confession. She was very worn out.
* DeclarationOfProtection: Promises to keep Naveen safe [[spoiler:as Perry goes to his death]].
** Mirrors the one that Naveen gives her, after she turns him human again.
* GoshDarnItToHeck: Almost verbatim, too!
* ImAHumanitarian: Not really, but after her horror at having eaten fish sticks, she gets very suspicious of the Chicken of the Sea shrimp can in the pantry for fear that its mermaid mascot represents its contents.
* KleptomaniacHero: Aside from all her hoarding (including one of the victims' ''heads'', which she was going to bury if they ever got to a body of water bigger than the showers), when the endgame brings up a stolen {{MacGuffin}}, she immediately leaps to wanting to steal it back.
* ManicPixieDreamGirl: According to Naveen, anyway, who sees her strange behaviour as "refreshing". In reality, she's not even concerned with pulling average men out of their boredom, but with pulling ''herself'' out of it and immersing herself in all things human. Even if it means using cutlery for hair care and eating ice cream with her hands.
* MrViceGuy: Ariel, as in canon, is defined by her curiosity and silly assumptions but also very much by her selfishness and short-sightedness.
* SweetTooth: Discovering human food will do that to you. She ate jam straight from the jar!
* ThatWasNotADream: Her reaction on the [[SecondEpisodeMorning second day]] of murder school.
* ThreatBackfire: Monobear would probably have freaked her out more if she actually knew what "saute" meant.
* TrashOfTheTitans: Ariel made a complete mess of her room in under an hour, and this was ''before'' she started hoarding stuff.

!![[Anime/HowlsMovingCastle Howl Jenkins]]
!!!Super High School Level Heartbreaker

[[spoiler:The culprit of Week 2 (Case 1).]]

* ButHeSoundsHandsome: One of the first indications that he's actually [[spoiler:the first culprit]] is when he gets indignant at the suggestion that this person wasn't very bright.
* KillItWithFire: He wants this done with the portrait of him in the foyer, which just isn't pretty enough. [[spoiler:Ironically, it's also his execution method.]]
* {{Narcissist}}: Even Monobear refers to him as a "pretty boy".
* PowerDyesYourHair: It wears off after the curse, bringing back his black hair.
* TooIncompetentToOperateABlanket: ''Have you seen the man try to wash his clothes''?
* TragicMonster: Though his vanity was the outward reason for being appalled at becoming a bird, he also feared being stuck that way forever because he'd eventually lose his sense of self. [[spoiler:He confesses this to Elsa, leaving her to know the truth while everyone else thinks he killed out of petty selfishness.]]
* VainSorceress: A gender-flip of the trope as usual. He felt bad for the other cursed students... until he realized that he'd turned back into a monstrous bird. Then all of his pity was reserved for himself and he became a sulky, inconsolable mess.

!![[WesternAnimation/GravityFalls Bill Cipher]]
!!!Super High School Level [[labelnote:???]]Conf̸͍̜̪̘̹̦̤̐͒ͮ̓̇̅͌̑͝i̢͛ͨͧ̈ͭ͌̾̓ͦ͌̒̋̃ͬ̔͏̵̴̢͈̱̣̣̦͙͓̮̭̖̮̪̲̤̫̳̤r͙͕͖̖̗̻̒͋͛͒̐͊̽̈́́̕͜͟ẵͭͫ͊ͦ̒̀̐ͦͫ̚҉̶͚̯̼͍̤s̶̍ͬ̉̍́̃̄̂̇͒̾ͭ̂̎̌͋͡҉҉̖͕͙͕̲̘̻̫̯̘̤̻́t̷̡̛̯̠̠̭̟͔͙̙̹̬̟̦̗̥̤̝̣ͫͦ͊͘͝[[/labelnote]]

[[spoiler:The culprit of Week 3 (Case 2).]]

* BecauseYouWereNiceToMe: He's still evil, sadistic, and very much messed-up, but [[spoiler:Naveen actually taking the time to ask why he is the way he is, when all the heroic types Bill's met before have taken him as just a twisted enemy who needs to be stopped without question,]] made him start to call him a friend and even ''flirt'' with the guy. Similarly, he feels a little disappointed when [[spoiler:he resigns himself to going through with his plan to murder Anna]], being down the one person who had actually held one conversation with him that didn't boil down to "you're a disgusting creep and should go die".
* BlackSpeech: His title is written out in "grimdark text", making it both ominous and illegible.
* BlondGuysAreEvil: He's blond as a human.
* BoringInsult: When others decry a murderer for, y'know, killing their fellow captive, Bill's only insults boil down to "couldn't you make it more interesting?".
* HateSink: In and out of character, though the players and audience largely find him a LoveToHate type. He's been described as inspiring "Komaeda-level hate" from the first trial.
* HumanityEnsues: He loves it! So many new opportunities.
* IHaveYouNowMyPretty: Kissing Naveen, [[spoiler:after the man has just been blindsided by Bill's reveal as Anna's murderer]]. Bill refers to it as crossing something off his bucket list.
* MyFriendsAndZoidberg: When discussing [[spoiler:the dead students, the survivors usually talk about "(their) friends... and Bill" or say they miss everyone but Bill]].
* TheNicknamer: Casually slings them around, usually based on physical attributes. (Pooh's "Claws" and Ariel's "Fins" came from the curse motive, but he still refers to them with those names afterwards.)
* NoSenseOfPersonalSpace: Bill really likes creeping people out.
* NotMeThisTime: Twisted. He spent the first trial convincing the class to try and convict him only to pull everything out from under them and say that it wasn't him -- his murders would be ''much'' more fun! This just drew everyone to hate him.
* NotSoInvincibleAfterAll: Still thinks he's immortal. He eventually finds out otherwise...
* {{Troll}}: Spent much of the intro log impersonating the headmaster, and it gets worse from there.
* WillNotTellALie: Though he'll happily sit back and let everyone stumble without the information he's not giving them, he'll volunteer the truth when asked and never actually ''lie'' about anything. Being framed in one case and [[spoiler:written off in the one where he actually ''did'' do it]] were absolutely hilarious to him, even up to the point where he had to fess up.

!![[Disney/{{Frozen}} Elsa]]
!!!Super High School Level Recluse

[[spoiler:The victim of Week 4 (Case 3).]]

* BrokenPedestal: She really looked up to her fellow magic users, especially for their pride and openness about their powers. [[spoiler:Howl killing Iridessa to escape his curse]] absolutely shook her.
* EmotionlessGirl: Becomes muted and closed-off after [[spoiler:Anna dies and Elsa blames herself for it]].
* FirstNameBasis: Elsa starts insisting on this with Naveen after the first trial, making up for not having had friends in the past.
* FlowersForAlgernonSyndrome: In the first motive, she lost her tragic backstory and became happier and better-adjusted, but she lost her memory of her sister, which was heartbreaking in and out of character all around.
* FoolishSiblingResponsibleSibling: On paper, she's the responsible one, and she tries to be that, but she depends just as much on Anna if not more.
* HeroicBSOD: Went completely blank and unresponsive when [[spoiler:Anna was killed. She was dragged into the trial this way]].
* SurvivorGuilt: Mirroring her sister's character arc in the previous round, Elsa falls into a pit of self-blame when she's the last to see [[spoiler:Anna herself before her death]].
* TokenLesbian: DRRP may have some straight people in it too, but the HoYay and actual confirmed same-sex ships alike have largely been relegated to men in this and other rounds save for R1's Juni/Roni, leaving Elsa this.
* TraumaButton: She's a cluster of these thanks to her frankly awful childhood of isolation, and they keep getting pushed.
* TraumaCongaLine: Pretty much the whole game, especially Case 2.

!![[Disney/ThePrincessAndTheFrog Naveen]]
!!!Super High School Level Playboy

[[spoiler:Made it to the survivor pool.]]

* ActuallyPrettyFunny: His reaction when he sees what Gaston and friends drew on his face.
* AirGuitar: Ariel catches him playing the air ukulele.
* BalefulPolymorph: Came into the game as a frog.
* BrokenSmile: Normally a smiling guy to begin with, but [[spoiler:his smile breaks (with a side of BrokenTears) while scrambling for some way to save Perry.]]
* ChivalrousPervert: Has hit on nearly every female in the castle, but finds them all fascinating and unique rather than fodder for sex. His protective streak towards them was apparent during the first trial.
* DistressedDude: After the outcome of the second trial is revealed, just about everyone jumps at the chance to come to Naveen's aid when [[spoiler: the culprit kisses Naveen by surprise]]. Somewhat subverted by the fact that Naveen throws the first punch.
** Happened again when [[spoiler:he fell into a coma]].
* FirstNameBasis: Upgrades to this with Elsa (who insists on it early) and Ariel (when [[spoiler:he proposes to her]]).
* HereWeGoAgain: The curse motive turned him back into a frog.
* InnocenceLost: The castle wears on him and breaks his idealism, and he starts to spite those who still have any.
-->''He wished he could just agree. Wished he could humor the bear and humor hope in himself, like he used to. Coasting through life without a care, because when you don't care nothing can touch you. With [[spoiler:Elsa's body]] cold a few feet from where he stood, he didn't have that luxury anymore. And, selfishly, he didn't want anyone else to either.''
* IronicEcho: Telling Gaston "You have your ways, I have mine". The first time, it was bragging about his love life; the second, about keeping faith that the students are good people even in murder school.
* LethalChef: Has never cooked in his life, and when he tries... um. Peanut butter in a frying pan does not equal peanut oil, okay, and you don't dump a whole container of peppers into it. (Not just any peppers, either. Dried chilies. Because they seemed "small." RIP Iridessa.)
* NakedPeopleAreFunny: Well, when he turned back into a human, he didn't have any (non-nerfed) all-powerful mages to give him some clothes...
* NotSoDifferent: Bill and Naveen. In their first real conversation beyond Naveen threatening to punch and/or gag Bill, Naveen realizes that Bill's claims to look for the silver linings in life and not take things so seriously sounded very familiar. [[spoiler: This backfired tremendously when it was revealed that Bill was Anna's murderer all along, leaving Naveen to wonder just what that similarity between them means.]]
* TheProudElite: His response to any mess is to let Monobear clean it up. Even before he knew the bear was out to make them kill each other, in which case he just assumed there were servants to do his work for him.
* RageBreakingPoint: Lashes out at Pooh for trying to "fix" a victim with needle and thread.
* ShelteredAristocrat: He provides the page quote for this trope and it's in full effect in DRRP. Taking care of himself is confusing and hard, okay?
* SpeaksFluentAnimal: As a side-effect of being a frog.
* StraightManAndWiseGuy: The fun-loving one to Perry's stoic.
* SupportingProtagonist: Originally seemed to be shaping up as the [[TheHeart Roxy/Sycamore figure]] of the team, but developed into [[TheHero the Jimmy/Beat]].

!![[Franchise/DisneyFairies Iridessa]]
!!!Super High School Level Light

[[spoiler:The victim of Week 2 (Case 1).]]

* IronicName: The last name assigned to her is O'Rinn -- "of ravens". As a six-inch fairy, she's afraid of predator animals.
* LightEmUp: Her control over light proves useful in investigating the secrets hidden on the main floor.
* MeatVersusVeggies: Having to rely on other people to obtain food that's anything close to small enough to eat is bad enough, but being used to [[{{Veganopia}} a setting where no one eats meat]] has led her to have to awkwardly explain that she doesn't a couple times, especially since most people cooking for everyone went straight for meat and seafood dishes. However, she's far from a StrawVegetarian about it, viewing meat-eating as just a kinda gross human thing.
* MouseWorld: How she has to function in a castle of humans, ScavengedPunk and all (though, as a light fairy instead of a tinker, she's not doing so well on that front).
* NervousWreck: She can get this way when something goes wrong. Anna and Ariel have both compared her to Elsa.
* PropheticName: [[spoiler:Guess what kills her?]]

!![[Literature/TheKingdomKeepers Terrence "Donnie" Maybeck]]
!!!Super High School Level Perspective

[[spoiler:Made it to the survivor pool.]]

* BigNo: When [[spoiler:Pooh sneaks past him to get at the honey while Maybeck's guarding the kitchen]] during the Snow White's Sleep motive.
* FawltyTowersPlot: With different lies told to different characters, having to MaintainTheLie for each, ''just'' so he doesn't have to fourth-wall anyone. He eventually had to break down during the second trial, when other characters started to PullTheThread thinking he was covering up [[MistakenForMurderer something else]].
* InsomniaEpisode: During the coma motive, Maybeck's existing unreality issues and anxiety over comas led him to avoid not just food (which was known to be the catalyst) but also sleep, just in case.
* IronicEcho: "What's the cost?" The answer, he muses, is sacrificing people for this horrible game.
* MetaGuy: Comes with recognizing everyone from fiction.
* NarrativeProfanityFilter: "The swear is 20% expletive and 80% wishing [[spoiler:Howl]] would . . . Something about Sleeping Beauty? Who knows."
* OutdatedOutfit: His blue pinstripe Dapper Dan suit, which looks absolutely dorky on him.
* PosthumousCharacter: Not Maybeck himself, but a lot of his internal monologue routes back to wondering what [[Creator/WaltDisney Uncle Walt]] would think or do.
* SirSwearsALot: Especially considering almost no one else does at all.
* UnknownRival: Maleficent is his ArchEnemy and he's ''incensed'' that she's apparently BackFromTheDead again... but [[AlternateSelf she's a different iteration]] who has no idea who he is.

!![[Disney/TheManyAdventuresOfWinnieThePooh Winnie the Pooh]]
!!!Super High School Level Honey Hunter

[[spoiler:Made it to the survivor pool.]]

* BearyFriendly: Providing a direct contrast to [[BearsAreBadNews Monobear]].
* BigEater: And he doesn't even need to eat. [[spoiler: Until the curse motive, anyway.]]
* GentleGiant: During the week where he was cursed to be a full-sized grizzly bear.
* TheHeart: Has become this to the remaining class, replacing Naveen after he started growing the ahoge.
* InnocenceLost: Starting from the very first trial, this really kicks in when Donald finally explicitly explains what it means when people stop moving. [[spoiler: By the end of the fourth trial, he ends up saying "I hate you" to Monobear.]]
* KindheartedSimpleton: He may be a bear of very little brain, but he's also a bear of very large heart.
* LukeYouAreMyFather: Assumed that Monobear was secretly related to him. Monobear rebuked this.
* MeatOVision: When everyone had to avoid eating, he started seeing everything as honey.
* MoralityPet: Seems to have become this to Gaston of all people.
* TheNeedless: Being a toy, he doesn't have any pressing physical needs, though he still gets hungry. Averted during the week where he became a real bear -- actually having to do things to live was his biggest shock.
* NeverLearnedToRead: At least not very long words.
* NeverSayDie: "Murderer" not being part of his vocabulary, Pooh has adopted various euphemisms for each culprit: [[OffWithHisHead head-taker-offer]], [[KillItWithFire burner-upper]], [[TamperingWithFoodAndDrink hot-chocolate-maker]], and [[TapOnTheHead head-hitter]].
* SeeminglyProfoundFool: Naveen has the impression that Pooh is a sarcastic genius from a world of horrors... somehow. Perry suspects he's secretly smarter than he looks, too.
* SpeaksFluentAnimal: He can understand Perry's speech.

!![[WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb Perry the Platypus]]
!!!Super High School Level Secret Agent

[[spoiler:The culprit of Week 5 (Case 4).]]

* DyingClue: [[spoiler:He leaves Naveen a clue in his hat pointing to where his last letters are hidden.]]
* EverythingsBetterWithPlatypi: Was already the page image, then he became a biologically accurate one for the curse motive.
* FateWorseThanDeath: Starts to think that his fate in the curse motive (becoming a ''realistic'' platypus) is this.
** This happens to Perry again in Week 5 when [[spoiler: he realizes that he can't live with himself for killing an innocent child.]]
* HeroicSacrifice: Even on a meta level. [[spoiler:His mun had considered opting him out of the death roll to spare the already emotionally tortured Naveen, but went through with it in case Naveen himself might die instead.]]
* MixAndMatchCritters: Some of his classmates assume he's a "beaver-duck."
* MyGreatestFailure: [[spoiler: Accidentally killing Sora.]]
* OccamsRazor: Taught this to Naveen to help him with cases. [[spoiler:In the end, it's how Naveen outs Perry as a culprit.]]
* OnlySaneMan: He constantly finds himself giving explanations to and talking sense into all these people from the past and supernatural creatures.
* StraightManAndWiseGuy: The serious one to Naveen's slacker.
* TeamDad: Perry has a soft spot for the younger/innocent students and becomes fiercely protective over them, especially Naveen when he's in a sleep-induced coma. [[spoiler:It's fitting how he ends up dying in Disney Ronpa that same week.]]
* ThisIsUnforgivable: Declares this after seeing the state of the second victim.
* WrongGenreSavvy: Perhaps appropriately, he seems to think he's in a spy movie and suspects Monobear to be a RogueAgent.
---->"This wasn't some kind of fairy tale, after all."

!![[Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast Gaston]]
!!!Super High School Level Huntsman

[[spoiler:Made it to the survivor pool.]]

* TheBeastmaster: Styles himself as this when he gets to ride a grizzly bear (a transformed Pooh, but details).
* BigEater: Raided the fridge to eat almost all the eggs by himself in one go. What did you expect?
* ButtMonkey: Already shaping up to be one.
* TheDungAges: Before Naveen forced him into the tub, it had been months since his last bath. Historical accuracy!
* FaceDoodling: Draws silly and occasionally obscene things on Naveen's face. Hey, when your classmate's unconscious for a week...
* HeartbreakAndIceCream: When the curse motive made him weak and noodly, he fell into a despair of ice cream and [[DrowningMySorrows beer]].
* ManlyTears: At [[spoiler:Naveen's DisneyDeath, despite having caused it.]]
* NeverLearnedToRead: Barely, anyway. Historical accuracy!
* StayInTheKitchen: Hilariously inverted in that Gaston is one of the few who knows how to cook well. Considering his attitudes towards women, this is more than a little ironic.
* TestosteronePoisoning: He lives and breathes it with zero sense of irony. If it can be considered MANLY, he'll do it with pride, if not, it's not worth his time.
* TookALevelInKindness: Has been gradually doing this over the course of his stay in the Tragic Kingdom. Still a {{Jerkass}} though.
* VillainWithGoodPublicity: For those who haven't gotten the chance to see the whole misogyny thing.

!!Film/{{Maleficent}}
!!!Super High School Level Fairy Godmother

[[spoiler:The culprit of Week 4 (Case 3).]]

* TheCynic: Flatly tells Bill that true love doesn't exist. She also doesn't believe from the start that they'll all get out fine.
* DeadpanSnarker: How she chooses to deal with all of this nonsense.
* TheFairFolk: Weaknesses to iron and flame, ChaoticNeutral mentality, wry and mysterious disposition, the works.
* IncredibleShrinkingMan: In the curse motive.
* PetTheDog: She calms her fellow fairy down from a panic attack after Monobear's first announcement and gives Elsa her cloak when she's having a HeroicBSOD.
* SetRightWhatOnceWentWrong: She was brought in after she started to regret cursing Aurora and was desperate to find a way to save her. [[spoiler:This regret led her to try to MercyKill Elsa to get herself a free change-the-past ticket like Jay's in Round 2.]]

!![[WesternAnimation/TheNightmareBeforeChristmas Jack Skellington]]
!!!Super High School Level Scream Cultivator

[[spoiler:Made it to the survivor pool.]]

* ConditionedToAcceptHorror: Much like Cecil before him, he weirds the other students out by waxing nostalgic about screaming candy and living toys that steal body parts.
* CuriousAsAMonkey: Yes, let's stick our head in the washing machine to figure out what it does, shall we.
* HumanityEnsues: Unlike Bill's, his was temporary.
* TheNeedless: And, unlike Pooh, he could resist eating during the coma motive.
* NightmareFetishist: Thought the washing machine and the Monomono Machine were fascinating torture devices and looked like fun to try.
* SweetTooth: As expected from the king of a candy holiday. He dumped a quarter of the sugar bowl into already sweet raspberry tea.

!![[Franchise/KingdomHearts Donald Duck]]
!!!Super High School Level Royal Magician

[[spoiler:Made it to the survivor pool.]]

* {{Angrish}}: He's known for ranting, but at the fourth trial, it degenerates into nonsensical stammers and screams with the occasional censored curse.
* InsultedAwake: Not a personal insult, but he spends much of the fourth trial depressed; he snaps to attention and whirls on the culprit upon the confession. [[spoiler:Nothing like betrayal and confessing to killing Donald's best friend in the school to get him to react.]]
* LaymansTerms: When he tries to explain death to Pooh.
* LovableCoward: When the curse motive made him see everyone as monsters, he noped out of the ballroom and hid.
* StunnedSilence: His only reaction to seeing [[spoiler:the destroyed portraits of his friends... and then the one of ''himself''.]]
* SuddenlyVoiced: As far as Maybeck's concerned, anyway, which led to both sides flailing.

!![[Franchise/KingdomHearts Sora]]
!!!Super High School Level Optimism

[[spoiler:The victim of Week 5 (Case 4).]]

* CaffeineBulletTime: Bounces off the walls during the coma motive when he and half the castle start substituting caffeine for food.
* CuriousAsAMonkey: Not as bad as Jack, but he spends most of his time investigating and trying things out... though it doesn't always work.
* DecoyProtagonist: He's the usual "hero" type, had an optimism-related title, and was often compared to R1's protag, Jimmy. [[spoiler:His death marked a major turning point that taught resolve and forgiveness to Naveen, who is currently getting the "real protagonist" votes.]]
* ForgottenFirstMeeting: Played with. Aside from Donald, everyone Sora's met in his travels doesn't remember him, because [[AlternateSelf they never did meet]].
* MenCantKeepHouse: He tried to help Howl with the laundry and made it worse.
* ThePollyanna: His SHSL title is "Optimism" and the others are grateful for the faith and positivity he radiates.
* ThePowerOfFriendship: Sora has faith that everyone can get out together from the start. Late in the game, some of the characters who had doubted it start to think that maybe they could have managed it if all of them had believed like he had.
* PowerOfTrust: When Pooh is framed [[spoiler:by the meat package at Iridessa's murder scene]], Sora stands by him even when the others are suspecting he did it.
* PunnyName: ''Sora Flyin''?
* TheUnintelligible: During the curse motive.

!![[spoiler:WesternAnimation/MickeyMouse]]

'''This section contains endgame spoilers.''' [[spoiler:The true owner of the castle, who's been imprisoned underneath it and taunted with updates on what's been happening above.]]

* AngstySurvivingTwin: [[spoiler:Well, surviving younger sibling.]]
* CompositeCharacter: Not of separate characters, but of many different versions of himself. [[spoiler:He knows both Sora and Maybeck, answers to "King Mickey", had the Sorcerer's Hat and the wand, and lives in a castle none of them have seen before.]]
* FisherKing: [[spoiler:The students' victory changes the castle back to normal, representing Mickey being in charge again.]]
* MyGreatestFailure: He studied magic for years, but was never able to [[spoiler:resurrect the dead, which he regretfully tells Pooh. It's implied that he tried with Oswald.]]
* RightfulKingReturns: [[spoiler:He's been imprisoned in his own castle and, once he's rescued, his goal is to take back what Monobear stole.]]
* TransformationTrinket: His [[spoiler:Sorcerer's Hat gives him a TransformationSequence along with being an ArtifactOfPower.]]
* WalkingSpoiler: Though this character's involvement in the plot is foreshadowed very early on, his role and identity are still very much an endgame spoiler.
* WhatsUpKingDude: Insists on familiar terms with the party.

!![[spoiler:WesternAnimation/OswaldTheLuckyRabbit]]

'''This section contains ''more'' endgame spoilers!''' [[spoiler:Mickey's lost brother, tragically forgotten after Mintz took the rights.]]

* AloofBigBrother: At one point, but now he just misses his brother.
* GodsNeedPrayerBadly: [[spoiler:Characters work much the same way, living on people remembering them. For decades, the only people who remembered Oswald aside from his own family were animation history students who saw him as a footnote.]]
* PosthumousCharacter: [[spoiler:Mickey describes Oswald's being forgotten by saying he was sick and got weaker until he faded away.]]

!![[Anime/FullmetalAlchemist Frank Archer]]
!!!Super High School Level Investigator

'''Round One'''

[[spoiler:The co-culprit of week 6 (case 5).]]

* ZeroPercentApprovalRating: [[spoiler:Manages to be the most hated person on the island for a little while after the fifth trial. This may or may not be justified - on the one hand, he had no remorse for opportunistically murdering Jumba in cold blood; on the other, it's implied he wouldn't have acted at all had Lysandre not convinced him to do it.]]
Characters/DanganRoleplayCanonRounds
* ColonelBadass: He's competent and able to keep his head even when under suspicion of having committed murder; even so, he's not ''quite'' as badass as he likes to think.
* ColonelKilgore: He's a soldier who's in a war back home, and while the paperwork may not be fun, the fighting sure seems to be. He seems pretty into the whole murder thing at times, too...
* LoopholeAbuse: [[spoiler:The double-culprit plan he came up with hinged on this.]]
* MaskOfSanity: To some extent. Most thought he was a bit creepy, but since he tended to keep to himself and was usually [[AffablyEvil polite and well-mannered]] among the others, he covered well for himself.
* PetTheDog:
** He was genuinely disturbed by [[spoiler:Aradia]]'s death; he was very active during the fourth trial to find [[spoiler:her]] killer, and showed up to the subsequent funeral.
** Had a bit of a confusing relationship with a few characters in which he often seemed to be ''trying'' to be supportive, even if the attempts were usually awkward and more than a little bizarre.
* ShipTease: For several weeks, with Lysandre. They actually slept together during Week Six. [[spoiler:...immediately after committing arguably the most gruesome murder in the game, turning the entire thing into NoYay. Several characters during the trial comment on how messed up that is.]]
* SmugSnake: Wasn't a very likable villain in this round, either in or out of character, aside from his small fondness for Aradia.
* TheSociopath: Came off as such in this round, anyway. Even when he did show emotional attachment, it wasn't for long, and he viewed the murder game as just something to get through or win.
* TheUnfettered: His morality is centred on "What can I do to get the best result?" The possibility of failure is acknowledged, but as long as ''he'' wins... [[spoiler:Which is why he came up with a plan to have a two-culprit murder: either he and Lysandre live or no one else dies at all. Either way, he's screwed the system and he's out of there.]]
* VillainousBreakdown: [[spoiler:After Lysandre turns on him during the fifth trial and begins trying to drag him under the bus with him.]]

'''Round Two'''

[[spoiler:Made it to the survivor pool.]]

* DeathWail: [[spoiler:In the aftermath of Lysandre's punishment.]]
* HeelRealization: Like Kirei, his came long ago and now he's owning it.
->"I'm ''not'' a decent person and I never will be."
* HiddenDepths: Not quite as big an asshole as he was in round 1. Also, who knew he could play the piano?
* MoralityPet: Archer starts developing actual feelings this round, largely thanks to Cynthia. She gets in his face and offers to help him out while being a Hero Of Justice until he can't help but have some kind of awkward fondness for her. [[spoiler:Probably why he didn't kill anyone this time.]]
* ParentalSubstitute: Seems to be growing a Feeling toward Cynthia, of all people. Yes, it's about as awkward and adorable as it sounds.
* TrueCompanions: With [[spoiler:the other 8 survivors of the Bunker Life of Mutual Killing]]. Despite having been through a killing game once before, it wasn't until this time through that he actually ''learned something'' from the experience.
-> [[spoiler:'''Madison:''']] ... Oh my god, you actually like them.
-> '''Archer:''' ...I suppose I do.
* WhatDoesThisButtonDo?: Found a strange button in a secret control room, and decided to push it. [[spoiler: It triggered the body announcement.]] ''He pushed it again.''
** Later confirmed by WordOfGod to have been a test in preparation for the Final Investigation to see what Archer would do when presented with a room full of buttons. [[spoiler:He passed.]]

!![[Franchise/AceAttorney Juniper Woods]]
!!!Super High School Level Gardener

[[spoiler:Made it to the survivor pool.]]

* TheChick: Her role in the game was the sweet emotional centre, with all the played-up girliness to go with it, rather than an enemy or a help in the trials.
* OfficialCouple: With Veronica by game's end.

!![[Franchise/AceAttorney Dahlia Hawthorne]]
!!!Super High School Level Chemist

[[spoiler:The victim of week 2 (case 1).]]

* BitchInSheepsClothing: To the point where nobody could believe it when [[spoiler:it turned out she'd been killed in self-defence]]. She acted sweet to everyone, but as in canon, was only looking out for herself.
* {{Irony}}: Dahlia, in canon, is [[spoiler:a BitchInSheepsClothing who engineered a bunch of people's deaths, manipulated and emotionally abused a number of them as well as her own twin sister (an awkward black-haired young woman who was in love with the protagonist and whom Dahlia ordered to dress up as her for her own ends), was executed for murder, and came back in an incorporeal form to try and get her revenge and kill people tied to her past.]] You've got to wonder [[spoiler:what the AI Junko thought of someone so like her being the first one dead]].

!![[{{Homestuck}} John Egbert]]
!!!Super High School Level Prankster

[[spoiler:The culprit of week 5 (case 4).]]

* NotTheFallThatKillsYou: [[spoiler:His execution had him dropped from a plane.]]
* {{Squick}}: [[InvokedTrope Invoked]]. He didn't even want to ''interact'' with [[spoiler:Hanamura in the dead community after they'd unknowingly eaten him when they were still alive]].
* WhatTheHellHero: He's called out when his and Aradia's plan to save everyone is discovered, because not only was it desperate, it could have gone wrong in ''so'' many ways. [[spoiler:And it did, ending with them both dead, no one any closer to escape, and Lysandre and Archer pushed to kill before someone else did the same thing.]]

!!Sam Erstwhile
!!!Super High School Level Book Collector

[[spoiler:His real title is "Super High School Level Thief". The victim of week 7 (case 6).]]

* ApologizesALot: As part of his sweet, harmless image.
* BitchInSheepsClothing: [[spoiler:And HOW. He projects the idea that he's a harmless bookworm, but the sweetness is a lie and he's long since lost any empathy for others. Especially helped by the game's SpoilAtYourOwnRisk policy; nobody knew, OOC or IC, that he was actually plotting to kill them all.]]
* {{Bookworm}}: It's in his title.
* BreakTheCutie: Became incredibly more upset and jaded as more people died, for obvious reasons.
* CynicismCatalyst: You'd think he was the ''reason'' that trope used to be called "Dead Little Sister". She was also his LivingEmotionalCrutch. [[spoiler:Her death is actually what [[DrivenToVillainy drove him to villainy]]]].
* EscapeArtist: [[spoiler:Komaeda]] jokes that Sam might be a "Super High School Level Houdini". Sam promptly responds by slipping out of handcuffs.
* IdiotBall: Despite being a bookworm, he isn't exactly the sharpest knife in the block, which was especially shown in cases like the time he thought Jumba ate Madison when she was merely changed to look like him. [[spoiler:However, he was honestly [[ObfuscatingStupidity MUCH smarter than he looked.]]]]
* EldritchAbomination: He comes off as a perfectly normal guy, [[spoiler:but his true form is an ancient aquatic monster.]]
* FromNobodyToNightmare: [[spoiler:Was once a shy older brother figure who loved his sister. Now, he's a literal monster bent on seeking revenge for her death.]]
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: [[spoiler:After being stabbed in the chest by Veronica, he was finished off by the bombs he was going to use to kill everyone else on the island.]]
* ItsAllAboutMe: [[spoiler:He sure ''seems'' like a caring guy, but he doesn't care about anyone else.]]
* LovableCoward: With murder going on all around him, is it any wonder?
* NotSoDifferent: [[spoiler:With Veronica, another "unnatural" being who cares chiefly for her sister.]]
* ManipulativeBastard: [[spoiler:Literally played the entire cast to think that he was a shy nerd who wouldn't hurt a fly. He was most certainly NOT.]]
* PsychoticSmirk: [[spoiler:Shows up during his villainous reveal.]]
* ShipTease: There was a lot of blushing and shy foot-shuffling with Madison, and they indeed dated for a while.
* ShrinkingViolet: Your average sweet, shy kid in over his head. [[spoiler:That would probably sound more convincing if the trope names were still allowed to be spoilered out in this section.]]
* ShutUpHannibal: [[spoiler:Is given this during his final confrontation with Veronica.]]
* TheyLookJustLikeEveryoneElse: [[spoiler:Looks like a scrawny, unkempt teenager on the outside, but on the inside...]]
* WeakButSkilled: [[spoiler:He can't fight to save his life, but his skills at thievery and emotional manipulation are something to behold.]]
* WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds: His sister was killed, he was driven to desperation for it, and now he's stuck in a murder game. [[spoiler:Yeah, but his only thought is of revenge and he wanted to kill the whole island.]]
* WoundedGazelleGambit: [[spoiler:Literally blew his own cabin up so that he could [[PlayingTheVictimCard play the victim card]].]]
* WalkingSpoiler: The game's SpoilAtYourOwnRisk policy helped a lot with keeping all those spoilered-out entries above under wraps.
* YouMonster: Stammered this at Monobear after the cannibalism incident. [[spoiler:He's been on the receiving end of quite a few since.]]


!![[JimmyTwoShoes Jimmy Two-Shoes]]
!!!Super High School Level Positivity

[[spoiler:Made it to the survivor pool.]]

* {{Adorkable}}: With a permanent grin and a friendly demeanour towards everyone.
* BadassAdorable: And only gets more so as the game goes on. It says something when [[spoiler:Junko saw the silly, happy-go-lucky kid with no actual combat or trial experience as the biggest threat to her game]].
* DraggedOffToHell: [[spoiler:Averted at the last second by the intervention of Hinata, Sonia, and Gundam.]]
* TheHero: He's got [[IdiotHair the ahoge]], the optimism, and the friendship for it, prompting calls of "Jimmy for this round's protagonist!". Later in the game, especially [[spoiler:after Lysandre and Veronica's executions]], the group sees him as both TheLeader and TheHeart.
* HugeGuyTinyGirl: Him and Heloise, height-wise. He's 6 feet tall while she's only 4 feet 8 inches.
* IronWoobie: This kid goes through a lot, [[spoiler:even being targeted by the Mastermind after he failed to kill or be killed]]. But what do you expect from a guy who somehow ended up living in Hell?
* ObliviousToLove: He's initially unaware of Heloise's true feelings for him. [[spoiler:Except not really.]]
* ObfuscatingStupidity: In regards to [[spoiler:Heloise's crush on him. He knew all along, he was just afraid acknowledging it might hurt their friendship.]]
* OfficialCouple: With Heloise, making it [[spoiler:the first and so far only DRRP couple to have both participants survive to the end of the game]].
* ThePollyanna: His very title is about keeping positive when things are dark, which eventually shaped him into this round's "protag".
* ShipTease: Heloise confesses her feelings to him at the end of week 3, but they don't really become official until week 6.
* YouAreWorthHell: With Heloise. They refuse to go on apart.

[[spoiler:'''Round 2''']]

* GreenThumb: [[spoiler:He's started training a Grass-type Pokémon.]]
* PreviousPlayerCharacterCameo: [[spoiler:He shows up with some other Round 1 characters and [=NPCs=] at the end.]]

!![[Series/AmericanHorrorStoryCoven Madison Montgomery]]
!!!Super High School Level Witch

[[spoiler:Made it to the survivor pool.]]

* AlphaBitch: She still acts like she's in high school at the top of the popularity chain.
* BeingGoodSucks: After she promises not to kill anyone and decides to actually help the group out, she finds that it was a lot easier just to hate everyone.
* BerserkButton: Don't imply you [[RapeAndRevenge used someone in a certain way.]]
* BigBrotherInstinct: Gender-inverted. She slowly grows to like and look after the younger characters on the island.
* BlackAndGreyMorality: Everyone, to her, is just a killer in waiting, so why should she be surprised?
* BrokenBird: She went through a lot in canon just because she happened to be there. Madison may be angry, but she has the backstory for it.
* DeadpanSnarker: When everyone else is freaking out, she'll usually just make a snide comment.
* EthicalSlut: She may just want to live out her life with cigarettes and random sex, but rudeness aside, she's one of the good guys.
* HopeIsScary: When she acknowledges that positivity can help them, she also sees that it can't be the [[SillyRabbitIdealismIsForKids childish ideal]] she thought, simply because of what it does to the enemy.
* JerkassHasAPoint: Madison might be callous during trials, but they ''do'' need to convict the guilty or die.
* TheLancer: To Jimmy's Hero, providing the cynicism to his hope and the differing opinions, once she actually goes into the hero business.
* MoralityPet: She admits if she hadn't made a promise to Jimmy she probably would have murdered someone.
* NeutralEvil: Not a nice person to begin with, but doesn't side with anyone and doesn't care either for the rules or for anarchy.
* TheNicknamer: Of the disrespectful variety.
* RebelliousRebel: Oh, the others are starting a secret rebellion against the headmaster? Let Madison complain all day about how stupid and pointless that is.
* TakeMeInstead: [[spoiler:When Jimmy gets framed and is about to be executed, she votes for herself and gets others to do the same.]]
* TokenAdult: [[spoiler:The only one over 18 to make it to the survivor pool.]]
* SourSupporter: Even when she's good, she spends most of her time snarking and complaining.

[[spoiler:'''Round 2''']]

* AscendedMeme: [[spoiler:Actually, yes, Madison, we ''did'' think we'd seen the last of you.]]
* PreviousPlayerCharacterCameo: [[spoiler:Shows up at the end of Round 2.]]
* SourSupporter: [[spoiler:She stands by the team and considers them her friends (though she wouldn't admit it), but she's still not very nice.]]
* WitchWithACapitalB: [[spoiler:Schuldig says the school must have made a typo on her ID.]]

!![[Franchise/AceAttorney Franziska von Karma]]
!!!Super High School Level Prosecutor

[[spoiler:The culprit of week 4 (case 3).]]

* FaceDeathWithDignity: [[spoiler: Her execution is considered one of the most haunting in part because of her composure.]]
* FigureItOutYourself: Rather than carry a whole trial, she tries to direct the other students to not perform so disappointingly. [[spoiler:When her own trial comes up, she limits herself to redirecting tangents, knowing that she'll be dead afterwards and the others will have to go on without her and hoping to leave an impression that will allow them to do so.]]

!![[IrisuSyndrome Satoshi Uujima]]
!!!Super High School Level Mimic

[[spoiler:Made it to the survivor pool.]]

!![[MarvelCinematicUniverse Phil Coulson]]
!!!Super High School Level Agent

[[spoiler:The victim and culprit of week 3 (case 2).]]

* PeacefulInDeath

!![[{{JimmyTwoShoes}} Heloise]]
!!!Super High School Level Mad Scientist

[[spoiler:Made it to the survivor pool.]]

* ChekhovsGift: During week 6, she gives Jimmy a stun-gun [[spoiler:which he later uses to stop Irisu when she tries to kill Uuji during week 8.]]
* DrivenToSuicide: [[spoiler:Averted during Jimmy's execution, thanks to him being rescued.]]
* EvenEvilHasStandards: While she works for a CaptainErsatz of {{Satan}} and her occupation is literally the creation of misery, she considers Monokuma and his methods of causing despair ''way'' over the line.
* EvilGenius: Claims to be evil, but she's more of a [[PunchClockVillain Punch Clock Villainess]] who ''really'' enjoys her work.
* HairColorDissonance: Her hair is dirty blonde, but sometimes gets mistaken for brown or regular blonde. [[spoiler:This becomes important during certain trials.]]
* HeroicBSOD: Has a minor one at the end of the case 4 trial after [[spoiler:Jimmy refuses to vote for John]], but a much bigger one comes during week 7, when she discovers [[spoiler:that [[AHellOfATime the world she and Jimmy are from]] may actually be the afterlife.]]
** She also [[spoiler:prepares to [[DrivenToSuicide shoot herself with her own laser gun]] during Jimmy's execution, but after he's rescued, she becomes so overwhelmed that she faints and ends up out cold for a while.]]
* HugeGuyTinyGirl: Her and Jimmy, height-wise. She's 4'8'' while he's 6 feet tall.
* MadScientist: Well, it is her title.
* MoralityChain: Jimmy is a MAJOR factor in keeping her rather stable. She proudly considers herself "evil" otherwise, [[spoiler:and when faced with losing him, she tries to kill herself right away.]]
* OfficialCouple: With Jimmy. Like in canon, they start out just best friends but with her having a huge crush on him, while he's completely oblivious [[spoiler: except he actually isn't]]. Though she confesses her feelings at the end of week 3, they don't really become official until week 6.
* ShorterMeansSmarter: At only 144 cm (4 feet 8 inches) tall, she's the shortest of the season 1 cast, but one of the smartest.
* TheSmartGuy: Gives the team ideas and scientific help.
* TeenGenius: She's as much a mad scientist as Jumba, and she's what, sixteen?
* OlderThanTheyLook: Madison mistakes her for being younger than she really is because she's so short.
* OnlyOneName: She mentions the last name given to her by the student profiles, "Hellspawn", isn't her real last name. In fact, she doesn't even know what that word means. [[spoiler:Until week 7.]]
* VillainousBreakdown: [[spoiler:Actually ''fakes one'' during the case 6 trial, due to her HeroicBSOD earlier that week.]]
* YouAreWorthHell: With Jimmy, for whom she'd face any consequence.

!![[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI Locke Cole]]
!!!Super High School Level Treasure Hunter

Did not have to threaten to rip anyone's lungs out. [[spoiler:Executed by Monobear.]]

!![[Manga/FrankenFran Veronica Madaraki]]
!!!Super High School Level Bodyguard

[[spoiler:The culprit of week 7 (case 6).]]

* {{Adorkable}}: She takes herself seriously, but the others on the island look at her as awkwardly cute.
* BigDamnHeroes: As would be expected from the SHSL Bodyguard. [[spoiler:Of course, the true trope-defining moment came during the Graduation Exam, when she and Kuzuryuu re-entered the simulation to provide backup for the survivors.]]
* CoveredInScars: From being stitched up and cut open repeatedly.
* CuteMonsterGirl: Vaguely reminiscent of Frankenstein's monster.
* DarkSecret: She's an ArtificialHuman. Not something she likes having others know, though she trusts a select few enough to tell them.
* DeclarationOfProtection: Gives one to Juniper and another towards pretty much the entire class.
* {{Determinator}}: She refused to give up on her class making it out, to the point of [[spoiler:soloing an EldritchAbomination bent on leaving everyone dead. Even dying didn't stop her.]]
* DyingDeclarationOfLove: [[spoiler:Toward Juniper.]]
* HeroicSacrifice: [[spoiler:She was executed as a culprit, but she gained that status while killing Sam to save the others.]]
* LittleMissBadass: She's an SHSL Bodyguard. The ''canon'' character with that title was actually a bunch of identical people pretending to be the same person. Veronica's just a slight teenage girl, [[spoiler:yet she managed to protect the whole island from a NotSoHarmlessVillain.]]
* OfficialCouple: With Juniper, after weeks of awkward blushing and foot-shuffling.

!![[VideoGame/PokemonXAndY Lysandre]]
!!!Super High School Level Leader

'''Round One'''

[[spoiler:The co-culprit of week 6 (case 5).]]

* ChekhovsGift: [[spoiler:The [[RedRightHand replacement hand]] he got from Jumba for Christmas was used in the murder of its maker.]]
* DespairEventHorizon: [[spoiler:He fell into despair after the third case, where it was clear that his efforts to revolt were hopeless, which led to the planning and carrying-out of the fifth. The fourth case in between decidedly didn't help and only proved to him that even the well-intentioned and those who planned to help everyone escape could end up killing them all.]]
* FieryRedhead: Resistance leader and [[MemeticMutation angry man]].
* MaddenIntoMisanthropy: His backstory. Twisted as, in canon and in both game rounds in which he appears, he seems to follow the trope line of being a perfectly good person, just bitter and liberated from convention... but then turns out to be broken and hateful enough to do terrible things for the greater good or just for revenge.
* MenDontCry: Averted following a few of the trials.
* MoralityPet: Jimmy and Veronica. [[spoiler:For a while, anyway...]]
* NotTheFallThatKillsYou: [[spoiler:His execution involved decidedly non-SoftWater.]]
* PetTheDog:
** He genuinely cared about his Pokémon, and spent a fair amount of time during free days playing with and feeding them.
** He had a definite soft spot for Jimmy and Veronica, seeming to unofficially adopt both of them after a while.
* PutThemAllOutOfMyMisery: He showed up on Jabberwock Island while [[VideoGame/PokemonXAndY literally in the middle of attempting to pull this on Kalos.]] [[spoiler:And then proceeded to attempt a similar stunt against his fellow students during the fifth trial.]]
* RedRightHand: [[spoiler:Literally. It's one of the pieces of evidence that pointed to him during Case Five.]]
* RightHandCat: Pyroar serves as a particularly large and dangerous variant in Round 1. Less so in Round 2, where [[spoiler:he spends half the round under [[KindheartedCatLover Sycamore's]] guardianship instead and Lysandre's right-hand villain monstrosities are Gyarados and Henri.]]
* ShipTease: For several weeks, with Archer. They actually slept together during Week Six. [[spoiler:...immediately after committing arguably the most gruesome murder in the game, turning the entire thing into NoYay. Several characters during the trial comment on how messed up that is.]]
* SignatureMove: Using Pyroar, who was never kept in his Pokéball and almost always at Lysandre's side.
* SoftWater: [[spoiler:Averted with his death. ''Hard''.]]
* SupportingLeader: While definitely not the protagonist and generally useless during investigations, Lysandre's primary functions were to lead the resistance/keep everyone unified and keep the trials on track while the actual protagonists and investigators did their thing.
* TakingYouWithMe: [[spoiler:Upon deciding that he wouldn't be able to live with himself if the plan he'd formed with Archer succeeded, he proceeded to drag his co-culprit under the bus with him.]]
* WhyWontYouDie: [[spoiler:"If you had all just shut up and ''died'', it would have been perfect!"]]

'''Round Two'''

[[spoiler: Punished by Monobear for destroying school property following the fifth trial... not! It's revealed that he was still alive and actually the Mastermind.]]

* BoomHeadshot: [[spoiler:His fake punishment.]]
* CrossingTheBurnedBridge: With Betty. Because of the claustrophobic nature of the game, they basically had no choice.
* DiesWideOpen: [[spoiler:His fake punishment, with his eyes staring into the camera after his hologram is shot in the head.]]
* OfficialCouple: With Sycamore eventually... and even if they don't outright say it when they get together, the entire school knows right away.
* OnlySaneMan: Somehow managing to turn into this in round 2.
* RedOniBlueOni: Blue Oni to Sycamore's Red Oni, in a hilarious reversal of their actual color schemes.
* SacrificialLion: After [[spoiler:his fake punishment]], his CR's development centres on going on without him and many of their stories take sharp turns. [[spoiler:When it's revealed that he was still alive, they prove that his "sacrifice" meant something to them.]]
* ShipTease: With Sycamore. As of Week 6 they finally kissed (after sharing a bed off and on for ''weeks'').
* TeamDad: Along with Sycamore's TeamMom.
* WorthyOpponent: Apparently considered this by Kirei. Funny considering that he's also the only person in the cast ''taller'' than Kirei.

!![[Disney/LiloAndStitch Dr Jumba Jookiba]]
!!!Super High School Level Experimental Geneticist

[[spoiler:The victim of week 6 (case 5).]]

* ChekhovsGift: Gave one to Lysandre. [[spoiler: It was later used in Jumba's murder.]]
* EvilGenius: Self-described, no less.
* FamilyUnfriendlyDeath: [[spoiler:''AND HOW.'' He was bisected with a burning laser, leaving only a recording of his strangled scream from one of his experiments, and then left there for days.]]
* HalfTheManHeUsedToBe: [[spoiler:Cut in half by a freaking laser.]]
* MadScientist: Like with Heloise, it's in his title and job description. He even started recreating his experiments on the island.
* MadScientistLaboratory: [[spoiler: Had one hiding under the airport, as part of his payment by Monobear for being TheMole.]]
* TheMole: [[spoiler: Was originally this for Monobear, before John and Aradia's deaths made him fess up to Monomi, becoming very temporarily the ReverseMole.]]
* MorallyAmbiguousDoctorate: Friendly mad scientist and self-proclaimed villain.
* PersonalEffectsReveal: [[spoiler: Among other things, the password to his computer was "1eyed1", and on it he had left schematics for a spaceship with enough seats for 20 people... Exactly the amount of people who originally arrived on Jabberwock Island.]]
* RedemptionEqualsDeath: [[spoiler: Jumba gets murdered the day after he betrays Monobear and confesses to Monomi.]]

!!!Super High School Level Strategist

[[spoiler:The culprit of week 2 (case 1).]]

!![[{{Homestuck}} Roxy Lalonde]]
!!!Super High School Level Hacker

[[spoiler:Made it to the survivor pool.]]

* TheHeart: Keeps the team believing in a way out and in each other.
* SmoochOfVictory: with [[spoiler:Hinata, after whom she'd been pining since he got there.]]

!![[{{Homestuck}} Aradia Megido]]
!!!Super High School Level Archaeologist

[[spoiler:The victim of week 5 (case 4).]]

* BlueAndOrangeMorality: She fit in really well with the other aliens, but the humans didn't understand her one bit, especially her cavalier attitude towards dead bodies and human customs.

!![[{{IrisuSyndrome}} Irisu Kyouko]]
!!!Super High School Level Wordsmith

[[spoiler:Made it to the survivor pool.]]

* WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds: The kid's freaking ''disturbing'' when you get down to it, but blame the tragic backstory for that.

!!Maya Ayling
!!!Super High School Level Marine Biologist

[[spoiler:The victim of week 4 (case 3).]]

* AnythingThatMoves: Though as her student ID alludes to, people with abnormal physiology are her favourite flavour. She considers [[spoiler:local EldritchAbomination Sam Erstwhile]] her proudest conquest yet.
* BizarreAlienBiology: [[spoiler:A good amount of time is wasted at the trial for Maya’s murder, when her fellow students are left perplexed as to how she was killed due to not knowing how her body ever worked in the first place.]]
* Cloudcuckoolander: Justified in that Maya’s brain is not genetically hardwired the exact same as your average human's, though it’s difficult to determine how much her instinctual octopus mechanisms are to blame for her outlandish mannerisms and how much is just straight-up eccentricity.
* CombatTentacles: Maya being MultiArmedAndDangerous kept her from being considered an easy target by certain fellow students. However, [[spoiler:Franziska's whip served her well during the pair’s struggle, as she could attack Maya whilst remaining out of her tentacles’ range.]]
* DeadlyDoctor: [[spoiler:A hopeful future medical student, Maya intended to utilise her medicinal knowledge to murder a classmate via forced overdosage.]]
* DeathByIrony: [[spoiler:Maya is killed via the exact same method she had planned to inflict upon another student. Additionally, whilst Maya’s officially stated cause of death was overdose, it is debatable whether the effects of the drug killed her first, or whether she drowned in the mix of liquid painkillers and her own blood. In other words, Franziska may indeed have drowned the octopus.]]
* DespairEventHorizon: [[spoiler:Receiving photographs of her hometown in disarray, its marine hybrid citizens being manhandled and its famous coral reef destroyed, spiralled Maya into a depression that led to her plotting to take a life.]]
* EverythingsSquishierWithCephalopods: Maya is a HalfHumanHybrid who has both human and octopus genetics, and hails from a town where FishPeople like herself make up a majority of the population
* ExoticEntree: Monobear is seen eating [[spoiler:takoyaki during the trial for Maya’s murder. It is heavily implied said victim's tentacles were the central ingredient of this deliberately grim snack.]]
* FalseUtopia: Malevonain, Maya’s home country, was once the cultural and technological capital of her world, presenting itself as a forward-thinking utopia whilst the government incarcerated its citizens in highly unethical behind scenes attempts to perfect BioAugmentation. They failed.
* FantasticRacism: Often the victim back in her home-world. Resultantly, Maya reacts with great dissatisfaction to being mistaken for a monster or having hers or her people’s humanity questioned.
* LonerTurnedFriend: [[spoiler:After hearing Jimmy talk about how he wished Maya had spoken to the group about her motive photos so they could have helped her before she fell deep enough into despair to plan to kill, Maya made a conscious effort to reach out to and interact with the other deceased students on the mirror island.]]
* NecessarilyEvil: [[spoiler:Maya only attempted to graduate because she believed she could circumvent the destruction of her home. Such was Maya’s discomfort with what she was doing that she readily blurted out her plans to Franziska when cornered in the pharmacy, and she is shown to be greatly remorseful upon waking on the mirror island.]]
** [[spoiler:WordOfGod is that, had Maya succeeded in graduating, she would have ultimately been DrivenToSuicide by her guilt.]]
* NoSenseOfPersonalSpace: Maya is prone to touching, grabbing, or hugging other characters without prior permission…though she does remember her manners occasionally.
* ScareEmStraight: [[spoiler:Once she arrives in the afterlife folder, one of the first things she does is intimidate Saionji into leaving the poor birds she was torturing alone.]]

!!!Super High School Level Spy

[[spoiler:One of the victims of Week 5 (case 4).]]

* JerkassWoobie: [[spoiler:Case 4's investigation reveals Jay hiding some really dark issues.]]
* SetRightWhatOnceWentWrong: [[spoiler:The motive that leads him to kill Tobias.]]
* ShipTease: With Miriam after [[spoiler:their deaths. He starts to care about her more than he did anyone while they were alive and decides to try and help her with her issues. When he tells off her EnemyWithin, it moves Miriam to fight back too.]]

!![[WesternAnimation/AdventureTime Simon Petrikov]]
!!!Super High School Level Antiquarian

[[spoiler: The culprit of Week 7 (case 6.)]]

* AbsentMindedProfessor: Given some of the mental effects of the crown.
* AnIcePerson: Not only has ice powers but appears to be an ice monster.
* GoshDangItToHeck: As benefiting a children's show character.
* KillTheOnesYouLove: [[spoiler:Though he wasn't aware of what he was doing and did it in self-defence besides, he turns out to be the one who killed Betty.]]
* SlowTransformation: Went through one from his normal human form to his current Blue Santa form as a result of putting on the crown.
* TogetherInDeath: [[spoiler:Is able to reconcile with Betty in the afterlife.]]
* WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity: The crown might give him power over ice and snow, but it's also taking a toll on his sanity.

!![[WesternAnimation/AdventureTime Betty Grof]]
!!!Super High School Level Space-Time Expert

[[spoiler: The victim of Week 7 (case 6).]]

* ActionGirl: Beats up Dan with ease.
* ATragedyOfImpulsiveness: Her ''entire time'' at murder school.
* CrossingTheBurnedBridge: Due to the claustrophobic nature of the situation, it was hard for her to keep avoiding Lysandre even after their disastrous conversation early in week 5.
* FieryRedhead: Got in a number of arguments for the sake of anyone she liked whom anyone else insulted.
* FlowerInHerHair: [[spoiler: Her corpse was found wearing a flower crown.]]
* GoshDangItToHeck: Same as Simon.
* MercyKill: [[spoiler:Attempted to give one to Simon.]]
* MorallyAmbiguousDoctorate: Largely a good guy, but she's done some seriously questionable things, chiefly [[spoiler:trying to MercyKill her fiancé and having a large part in the slow breaking of Dan.]]
* ParentalSubstitute: To [[spoiler:Homura. She was going to make it official, but then Homura died.]]
* PrecisionFStrike: [[spoiler: After her ill-fated conversation with Lysandre ends with a death threat, Betty lets out a simple ''Damn''.]]
* TogetherInDeath: [[spoiler:Tried to commit murder-suicide to mercy-kill Simon but failed. Even so, they ended up in the afterlife together soon enough.]]
* WeirdScience: The stuff she studies runs off this, since, well, her world does.

!![[{{Manga/Saiyuki}} Son Goku]]
!!!Super High School Level Wild Child

[[spoiler:Made it to the survivor pool.]]

* BrutalHonesty: The kid has no brain-to-mouth filter. He tries to use it to good ends, but sometimes gets shut down with claims that he's CompletelyMissingThePoint.
* CheerfulChild: Well, teenager, and as much as one ''can'' be cheerful here. He's one of the most cluelessly optimistic people on the team.
* GoofyPrintUnderwear: Bacon-print boxers.
* HopelessWithTech: He has no idea how to work any of the shiny Hope's Peak gadgets.
* InnocentlyInsensitive: When someone's excited about their upcoming wedding, you don't start asking whether they plan to take any other students as concubines. Just a thought.

!![[Disney/{{Frozen}} Anna]]
!!!Super High School Level Little Sister (main canon)
!!!Super High School Level Radiance (Disney Ronpa)

'''Round Two'''

[[spoiler:Made it to the survivor pool.]]

* BreakTheCutie: Okay, so that's the point of the despair game, but Anna's been through quite a few personal revelations in addition to the torture going on around her.
** [[spoiler: Week 10 was particularly relentless on Anna, considering she not only remembered Hans's [[HiddenVillain reveal]] but also lost her mother figure that week.]]
* CuteClumsyGirl: Runs into things a lot. Though she's a force to be reckoned with when she gets down to business.
* FieryRedhead: Jumps into things without thinking and sticks to her guns despite reason.
* FriendToAllLivingThings: Before the sixth trial, she managed to get evidence out of the resident man-eating plant in the greenhouse, Audrey III, by [[MusicSoothestheSavageBeast singing to it]].
* InLoveWithLove: [[spoiler: Somewhat subverted when she first regains her memories of Hans, though it doesn't take long for her love for her sister and friends, both living and deceased, to become her motivator again.]]
* TheIngenue: On top of all of her naivete (and she's got that in spades), she's completely unable to comprehend profanity or adult topics; played for laughs in Week 3 when Naomi and Cecil give her TheTalk, and when Cynthia tries to explain the contents of her mother's book to her.
* LethalChef: Tries to cook pancakes with {...} in Week 1, and somehow ends up getting one stuck to the ceiling. It stayed up there for ''nine whole weeks'' before finally falling.
* TheMatchmaker: She's determined to see Adachi and Sonico together in Week 3, and in Week 5, she sees Naomi and {...} talking during her Karaoke Night and [[ShipperOnDeck instantly plans to set them up]] (much to Naomi's chagrin).
* NeverSpeakIllOfTheDead: She rips a strip out of [[spoiler:the Mastermind when he says that those who didn't survive to that point had "failed".]]
* ParentalSubstitute: Naomi basically serves as her mother figure throughout the game, and {...} her father figure by extension. [[spoiler: She loses both in a span of two weeks.]]
* ThePollyanna: Convinced that everything will be just fine from the start.
* ThePromise: She and Naomi swore early in the game to keep one another safe, a vow that Anna takes very seriously. [[spoiler: As such, she's obviously devastated after Naomi dies at the end of Week 10.]]
* RulesLawyer: Shaped up to be one of these as well, after encouragement from Schuldig in Week 7, as pushing the rules had proven to be one way to fight back against Monobear's unfair treatment.
* StrongerThanTheyLook: Both [[PintsizedPowerhouse physically]] and emotionally.
* StudentAndMasterTeam: Becomes the "Student" to Naomi starting in Week 4.
* SurvivorGuilt: Discussed this with Naomi after the [[spoiler: fifth motive and trial; though there were four people stuck on the third floor of the building that week, Anna was the only one who survived.]]
* YouMonster: The only thing she could think of to say when she learned about [[spoiler:Junko and how she betrayed and killed her own sister]].

'''Disney Ronpa'''

[[spoiler: The victim of Week 3 (Case 2).]]

* AlternateSelf: Due to the rules of gimmick rounds being non-canonical to the main game, this Anna isn't the same one from Round 2 (despite being played by the same mun). She has the same new last name, but a different SHSL title.
* CuteClumsyGirl: She's this in canon, too, but here she runs into almost every one of her classmates within the first few minutes of the game.
* FoolishSiblingResponsibleSibling: The foolish one to Elsa's responsible, but Elsa having to be responsible stresses her out and Anna becomes the one she can depend on.
* InterfaceScrew: When she became invisible, she lost her default icon designation and started replying to things with no icons.
* InvisibleMainCharacter: During the curse motive, she's rendered invisible and inaudible, just when her sister forgets she ever existed.
* IWillWaitForYou: Played with. The line is delivered with the same emotional weight as usual... even though she's just waiting for her sister to catch up to her in the book series they're both reading. [[spoiler:Helps that she dies reading the last book.]]
* RoleReprisal: Even though it's technically a different Anna, she's still played by the same person like canon recurring characters have to be.

!![[Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica Homura Akemi]]
!!!Super High School Level Time Traveller

[[spoiler: The victim of Week 4 (case 3).]]

* ATragedyOfImpulsiveness: And ''how''. If she'd only had time to think about what was going around her instead of jumping to the worst conclusion at a time when no one was in their right minds, [[spoiler:she might not have died or attacked Ike.]]
* BungledSuicide: [[spoiler:She still dies, but it's helped along by Ike after she attacks him in a fit of motive-induced delusion.]]
* DeadManWriting: To many of the surviving characters.
* [[invoked]] EpilepticTrees: In the final trial, Homura concludes from everything she sees in the proceedings that... [[spoiler:the students are all Pokemon]]. What?
* GreatDetective: When she's thinking logically and not jumping to planting EpilepticTrees. Being at that level is not only what helped lead to [[spoiler:unmasking Saki as the second killer, but also helped her to realize that Lysandre was the Mastermind ''before the living students even thought of it''.]]
* GrowingWings: She does eventually, with painful results. Homura, [[BodyHorror you're]] [[PainfulTransformation not]] [[AndIMustScream exactly]] NighInvulnerable in this school...
* LastNameBasis: An accidental case; because her name was written in Eastern order, Betty got mixed up and thought Akemi was her first name for weeks.
* NotSoDifferent: She sees some of [[spoiler:Homucifer]] in the Mastermind, particularly their treatment of their object of affection and "screw the rest of the world" attitude.
* OccamsRazor: How she discovers that [[spoiler:she became a witch.]]
* RaisedCatholic: Still very religious in the beginning, but not so much when she starts remembering the TraumaCongaLine that was her life.
* SuperPowerMeltdown: As the game progresses, she begins to [[spoiler: unconsciously manifest elements of her barrier around the school.]] Reaches a head after the second trial when [[spoiler: her wings manifest by ''tearing their way out of her back''.]]
* TheDarkSideWillMakeYouForget: And reverting to your adorable, innocent original self but slowly regaining your memories will make you remember. [[spoiler:By the end, and especially after her crucial development in the afterlife, she's become a lot more healthy than either the timid Moemura or the obsessive, controlling Homucifer.]]
* TomatoInTheMirror: Homura, [[spoiler:the Witch you're looking for is still you]].
* WonderChild: To Betty and Simon, basically, as they had wanted a child and discover a sweet, lovable orphan right in front of them. Cecil is her HonoraryUncle.

!![[VideoGame/TheWorldEndsWithYou Sanae Hanekoma]]
!!!Super High School Level Convenient Timing

[[spoiler:The victim of case 2.]]

* IronicNickname: His title. [[spoiler:The announcement of his murder occurred during Betty and Simon's wedding.]]
* TheNicknamer: Right off the bat, he starts giving them to people, even Monobear.
* PosthumousCharacter: [[spoiler:Granted, he lived three weeks and developed CR. However, a lot of important development happened after his death through his student file, reports, and canonmate.]]

!![[Anime/SuperSonico Super Sonico]]
!!!Super High School Level Gravure Idol

[[spoiler:Made it to the survivor pool.]]

* {{Adorkable}}: A sweet girl who gets a little too obsessed with the things she likes.
* ApologizesALot: She feels a little inferior to the students with more impressive talents and feels like a burden at times, hence this.
* BreakTheCutie: [[spoiler: Losing your best friend one week and then finding out your boyfriend's a serial killer who not only killed women back home but also your big brother figure the very next? ''Damn.'']]
* CoolBigSis: To [[spoiler:Beat, who begins calling her 'Nee-san' and eventually 'Sonico-nee' following the final trial and graduation exam.]]
* {{Determinator}}: To which extent she's helped carry two trials, one while she had a concussion.
* FeminineWomenCanCook: Very girly and known for her cooking skills, even teaching Adachi to make more than instant.
* HiddenDepths: Despite being easily flustered and somewhat scatterbrained, she's proved to be surprisingly competent in trials (particularly second trial where she was ''concussed'') and when she comes to the conclusion that she's merely at the school to be a VictimOfTheWeek during week 6, she decides to do everything in her power to subvert that role.
* InnocentFanserviceGirl: Like Betty, wins a school swimsuit from the Monomono Machine and dons it during the second week. She doesn't seem to see a problem with it at all.
* IllGirl: Concussed for most of week two after being attacked by Beat.
* MoralityPet: Is this to Adachi. Implied that [[spoiler: she's what's keeping a lot of his canon... ''tendencies'' at bay through most of the story.]]
** In week 6, she [[spoiler: outright overheard him talking about wanting to ''kill someone'' (from back home, not in the school) and about to go on a destructive rampage of some sort after remembering the death of Nanako Dojima. The sound of her voice calmed him down ''immediately''.]]
* NiceGirl: Genuinely sweet and one of the few characters who doesn't have something to hide.
* NeverBareheaded: Averted for the first week - her trademark headphones were stuck in the Monomono Machine. She managed to get them back pretty fast though and even after she stops wearing them after [[spoiler: the final trial]], she's rarely seen without a hat of some kind.
* OfficialCouple: With Adachi. Accepted when he asked her out during week 3, became official for sure by the end of week 4.
* RoseHairedSweetie: Every bit as rose-haired and sweet as the trope suggests. Unfortunately it's what led to people suspecting her in [[spoiler: case 1, since pinkish hair was found in the victim's hand.]]
* YouCantGoHomeAgain: [[spoiler:Even if going home was what she wanted most throughout the game, at the end of it, she starts to think that maybe she never could because she's gone through too much.]]

!![[VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening Cynthia]]
!!!Super High School Level Heroine

[[spoiler:Made it to the survivor pool.]]

* BileFascination: [[invoked]] In the library, she discovered a book she recognized from her mother's collection but hadn't actually read. Until she cracked it open, she hadn't put together the clues that it was from her mother's ''PornStash''. It was also not very good. And yet, perpetually on the edge of reaching for BrainBleach, she kept reading.
* BrokenPedestal: Her view of her hero was severely shattered when [[spoiler:Ike assisted Homura's suicide and tried to frame Cecil to escape]].
* CloudCuckooLander: Assumes a lot of weird things instead of the obvious answers.
* GenkiGirl: Cynthia gets a little intense with her ideals of heroism and friendship, and she tries to keep as positive as she can.
* ThePowerOfFriendship: She will give friendship speeches and round up the cast every time they seem to be losing hope.
* NotSoDifferent: [[spoiler:The Mastermind couldn't bring himself to draw up her execution plan because she reminded him of himself when he still had hope. Cynthia starts to worry that maybe she'll end up like him if she's not careful.]]
* RousingSpeech: Considers it her specialty.
* VanHelsingHateCrimes: Initially hated all undead (and just creepy pale people who looked undead -- sorry, Archer), but quickly learned that they weren't all bad like they were at home and befriended them. Although she still harboured a theory for weeks that the mastermind must be [[spoiler:Zombie Junko]].
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Most of her icons depict the blue-haired version of Cynthia.

!![[VideoGame/PokemonXAndY Augustine Sycamore]]
!!!Super High School Level Researcher

[[spoiler:Made it to the survivor pool.]]

* DeathWail: [[spoiler: In the aftermath of Lysandre's punishment.]]
* TheHeart: Much like Roxy in the previous game, Sycamore is the emotional core of the team and the support for both the leader and the eventual protagonist, [[spoiler: and he rallies everyone to vote hope at the end of the game.]]
* HeroicBSOD: [[spoiler: Finding out that Lysandre was the Mastermind did quite the number on his emotional state. ''Especially'' when he learned they were in his own world all along -- and it was post-apocalyptic.]]
* TheLastOfTheseIsNotLikeTheOthers: [[spoiler:Was never a part of Hope's Army like the others, nor was he allied with the Mastermind. The latter mentions that the Future Foundation "didn't get to (Sycamore) before this happened", implying that the group had ''intended'' to recruit him once.]]
* MealTicket: Cammy views him as this.
* MoralityPet: He's this to Schuldig and Lysandre ''in spades''.
** To the point where Schuldig's player has lampshaded that Sycamore's death would likely kick off the "Ginger Genocide Bad End."
--->''"What if Sycamore gets deathrolled this week?"''
--->''"You die. Every last one of you dies."''
* OfficialCouple: He and Lysandre ''finally'' snogged each other's faces off during week 6.
* RedOniBlueOni: Red Oni to Lysandre's Blue Oni - which is an inversion of their natural color schemes.
* ReallyGetsAround: Also hooked up with Cammy in week 5.
* ShipTease: With Lysandre. Also with Schuldig. ...And Cammy. But mostly with Lysandre, with whom he eventually ends up; passing notes, sharing beds, and long, heartfelt talks will do that.
* TeamDad: He takes care of everyone, especially the younger students, who start to see him as a parent.
* PrecisionFStrike: At the [[spoiler: case seven afterparty, trying to cheer Schuldig up.]]

!![[{{Literature/Animorphs}} Tobias Fangor]]
!!!Super High School Level Lookout

[[spoiler:One of the victims of Week 5 (case 4).]]

* CommonalityConnection: With Schuldig, having bonded over their mutual ability to communicate telepathically.
* HumanMomNonhumanDad: It's revealed in his canon and mid-way through the game that [[spoiler:his father was an alien. Elfangor, to be specific.]]
* MoralityPet: To Schuldig. [[spoiler: Good thing Schuldig still has Sycamore, after Tobias' murder.]]
* NeckSnap: [[spoiler: how he was murdered by Jay]]
* RunningGag: The ongoing debate over calling it "telepathy" versus "thought-speak", which ultimately culminated in ''[[BuffySpeak brainspeaky wordnoises]].''
* SecretLegacy: [[spoiler: Actually the son of Elfangor.]]
* TooGoodForThisSinfulEarth: The characters think so, too, [[spoiler:and mourn him as someone who never deserved this.]]
* TooHappyToLive: [[spoiler:Genre-savvy players called that his days were numbered when he was reunited with his birth father, Elfangor, ''on Father's Day no less''.]]

!![[VideoGame/AceAttorneyInvestigations Cammy Meele]]
!!!Super High School Level Translator

[[spoiler:Made it to the survivor pool.]]

* ChekhovsSkill: Her SHSL talent comes in useful twice: once during Tower of Babel week and once when investigating Henri's secret (since she went straight to figuring out the etymology of his name).
* KarmaHoudini: Her end goal is to escape to another world and become this. [[spoiler:Once she makes it to the survivor pool, it seems like she's succeeded... that is, until her status as a "dangerous criminal" is revealed in the final investigation, her MealTicket has an emotional breakdown, and the peaceful world she wanted to escape to has been razed to the ground.]]
* ObfuscatingStupidity: As in canon, she pretends to be a harmless, ditzy woman who falls asleep standing. She throws it off late in the game and decides to actively participate in the investigations and lay it all on the table.
* {{Squick}}: [[InvokedTrope Invoked]], when she discovers that [[spoiler:she'd hit on the ''Mastermind''.]]
* ThisLooksLikeAJobForAquaman: One week's motive had the TranslatorMicrobes break down.

!![[VideoGame/TheWorldEndsWithYou Daisukenojo "Beat" Bito]]
!!!Super High School Level Big Brother

[[spoiler:Made it to the survivor pool.]]

* ComingOfAgeStory: Taking the beginning steps from canon and ramping them up to 11 with two months of trauma. Beat goes from violent, untrustworthy distraction at best to [[spoiler: leading the charge in the last player-sparked trial and following Jimmy's footsteps as the tall blonde ahoge-growing teenager]].
* CrossingTheBurnedBridge: After the deaths of ''basically all of their important CR'', Sonico and Beat have started to repair their relationship. So much so that after [[spoiler: Beat was nearly electrocuted]] in the 9th trial, Sonico refused to leave him behind.
* DoNotCallMePaul: Hates his real name. [[spoiler:Though he actually stops insisting on this and even encourages people to call him "Daisukenojo" or "Daisuke" in the endgame arc.]]
* FirstNameBasis: Sonico starts calling him "Beat-kun" [[spoiler:and eventually "Daisuke-kun" during the ninth trial, crowning the peak of their negative-to-positive relationship since the start of the game.]]
** [[spoiler: Now more literal as of the Final Investigation. Enough so that it's even changed in the prose as well as dialogue.]]
--> [[spoiler:"If... if ya want... could you call me Daisukenojo from now on? O-or jus' Daisuke, since it's kinda long and dumb. Heh, kinda like me."]]
* FriendlyTarget: If you are a young girl/woman and are close to Beat, you might wanna count your days.
** It's enough of a problem that Monobear ''literally taunts'' Beat with this fact in order to try and goad him into a punishment.
-->"Upupupu~ What's the matter, ''big bro?'' Lost another little girl who was counting on you?"
** [[spoiler:After Week 9/Case 8, it seems 'adult male who has saved his life' is also added to the list of Beat-related death flags.]]
* {{Gesundheit}}: His response to hearing the name "Yveltal".
* HairAntennae: Beat's ascension to the protag slot comes with an awful self-done haircut that gives him not one but a handful of [[IdiotHair ahoge]].
* HeroicBSOD: His reaction to the second motive, though less the shell-shocked version and more the lashing out alternative. Freaked out and tried to take out Simon AND Sonico with a chair. The consequences of his actions are still being felt weeks later.
* IdiotHero: He is this for the group -- who mistakes "banned" for "banana" and tries to cut their own hair with medical scissors? -- and, despite spending most of the game [[CounterpartComparison compared to Mondo]], is eventually declared "this round's protagonist".
* IncestSubtext: While done jokingly, Inaba HAS accused him of being a siscon. The joke continues [=OOCly=] as well.
* ImportantHaircut: After his hair started getting shaggy he tried to cut it himself, only to be discovered by Naomi, who in a motherly gesture finished it for him. [[spoiler: She was murdered later that night as the victim of the ninth trial. And since it wasn't done professionally/could only be SO rescued from Beat's chop job it now sports a few familiar cowlicks...]]
* KnightTemplarBigBrother: Along with his actions in canon, he's outright stated to Elfangor that he would be willing to sacrifice everyone in the school to save Rhyme if it comes down to it.
* LetsGetDangerous: [[spoiler: ALL OF THE NINTH TRIAL, where he stands up for himself and the whole group and reveals himself to be, while still dense, able to figure out Monobear's scheme and refusing to let anyone else die.]]
* OddFriendship: With Schuldig, of all people, who seems to understand his reckless tendencies better than most. Also kind of a SempaiKohai relationship, following [[spoiler: Hope's capture]].
* OnlyFriend: To Dan, taking a bit of Chris' role from Dan's canon. Though Cynthia makes attempts to get through to Dan as well.
** [[spoiler: Enough so that while most of the class doubted Beat was the killer of Case 8, Dan was the only one that defended him 100% from the start. Loudly.]]
** [[spoiler: And when Dan's SanitySlippage was shown in the 9th trial Beat was enraged at how they all had treated him. Including himself for not doing enough.]]
* PersonaNonGrata: He just keeps making stupid comments and subsequently getting banned from things.
* RejectedApology: While Simon largely forgave him for the chair incident, and Betty and him had managed a tense understanding, Sonico (and through her, Adachi) refuse to have anything to do with Beat. Considering he keeps yelling or fleeing every time he tries, her stance is understandable.
* SheIsNotMyGirlfriend: A number of people thought "partner" meant something else.
* SmartBall: He does have his surprise moments of brilliance, being the one to find out how [[spoiler: Hope was captured]] as well as how to uncover the messages in the 7th floor rooms. All coming to a head when [[spoiler: he has a large part in outing Adachi as Case 8's killer.]]
* SympathyForTheDevil: [[spoiler: A good hunk of the Case 8 Afterparty was Beat explaining Adachi's motivations to Sonico through the lens of his own experiences. According to Adachi's player he was eerily close more often then not. During a concurent thread with Schuldig he admits that the fact the can understand Adachi's actions ''terrifies'' him.]]

!![[WesternAnimation/DanVs Dan]]
!!!Super High School Level Firebug

[[spoiler: A victim in Week 10 (case 9), as well as a culprit.]]

* HatesEveryoneEqually: When he was called out on calling the sweet, virginal, self-loathing, uber-religious girl raised by nuns a "whore" and causing her to freak out, he didn't even realize that it was that big of a deal for her, nor did he really care too much. To Dan, everyone deserves every expletive.
* IntentionalEngrishForFunny: When the translation factor broke down, Dan ended up in the kitchen with Beat, who spoke very little English, and worked himself up into a rage where he ended up repeating all of Beat's interesting attempts at communicating with him.
-->Yes! Yes! Dan mad all! DAN MAD ALL DAN MAD ALL!
* HiddenDepths: He's a huge Shakespeare fan, even if he's still a jerk when he talks about it. [[spoiler: He's also an excellent blacksmith, able to create a sword within a couple hours, without anyone noticing.]]
* {{Jerkass}}: And proud of it, being rude and hateful to everyone because he doesn't think they'd want to be his friends anyway.
* JerkassHasAPoint: Occasionally comes up with good ideas and even pointed out one culprit when everyone automatically believed their innocence. This is usually lampshaded.
* JerkassWoobie: [[spoiler:His revenge list shows the sheer ''extent'' of his psychological problems and how badly he needed friends.]]
* ManChild: Dan is not the most mature of people and tends to throw tantrums.
* PetTheDog: His Father's Day regain was a card from his almost-adopted son Dennis. It even had a pawprint from his kitten on it, too.
* PyroManiac: He's not SHSL ''Firebug'' for nothing.
* SanitySlippage: [[spoiler:While not exactly stable in the first place, his list shows his slow descent into paranoia and despair as the murders continued.]]
* SirSwearsALot: And he doesn't even get it if someone complains.

!![[VideoGame/TraumaCenter Naomi Kimishima]]
!!!Super High School Level Pathologist

[[spoiler: A victim in Week 10 (case 9).]]

* TheCoroner: She is a Medical Examiner.
* EyeScream: [[spoiler:Her left eye is damaged by shrapnel after Monobear explodes during Week 4.]]
* HandyHelper: [[spoiler:After {...} lost his body Week 7, she ended up carrying his head around.]]
* HeroicBSOD: [[spoiler:Finding {...} resulted in this. She blames herself for leaving him vulnerable despite him actually requesting to be alone.]]
* LikeADaughterToMe: She loves Anna as though she were her own. [[spoiler: She tells her as much in a [[DeadManWriting letter to her written just before she died.]]]]
* TheMedic: Acts as the school's nurse out of an obligation to keep everyone healthy. [[spoiler:She was the team medic in Hope's Army as well.]]
* NonFatalExplosion: [[spoiler:Subverted. Naomi is injured in an attempt to dismantle a questionably idle Monobear.]]
* OfficialCouple: Together with {...} as of Week 7. [[BoyMeetsGhoul 'Corpse Whisperer' indeed.]]
* StudentAndMasterTeam: Starting in Week 4, she's the "Master" to Anna.
* TheTalk: Gives this lecture to several students with Cecil.
* ThousandOrigamiCranes: Begins folding cranes after the first case for the deceased students and continues doing so for each subsequent case. [[spoiler: Stops folding them after finishing {...}'s own one thousand following the eighth trial.]]

!![[Podcast/WelcomeToNightVale Cecil Palmer]]
!!!Super High School Level Radio Host

[[spoiler: The culprit of case 5.]]

* OurAngelsAreDifferent: As soon as he learns that one of his fellow students is an angel, he starts calling him "Erica".
* BadassBaritone: Voiced by [[TheDanza Cecil]] Baldwin.
* BreadEggsMilkSquick: His Student Profile lists his likes as "brandy, cars, [[HumanSacrifice ritual sacrifice]], Westerns." This is actually a plot point during the third trial.
* CloudCuckooLander: May or may not actually be one in terms of personality, but definitely comes off as one to most of the other students.
* ConditionedToAcceptHorror: As the resident Night Valean, he comes from a CrapsackWorld.
* DarkIsNotEvil: He may live in a horror land and be associated with death and monsters, but he's a pretty nice guy.
* FinalSpeech: [[spoiler:Used his last words to spur on the students and call out the Headmaster... too bad he wasn't looking at the right guy.]]
* IgnoranceIsBliss: Has no memories of anything that happened during or after [[WhamEpisode "Yellow Helicopters"]].
* NightmareFuelStationAttendant: [[invoked]] To the other characters, who can only imagine where he comes from and what he gets up to.
* PsychicPowers: Had remote viewing abilities that let him report on events going on around town in his own canon. Isn't able to use them while in Hope's Peak.

!![[VideoGame/FireEmblemTellius Ike]]
!!!Super High School Level Hero

[[spoiler: The culprit of Case 3.]]

* AwesomeMcCoolname: The last name given to him on his student profile is "Rockoff".
* WhatTheHellHero: [[spoiler:Killed Homura. Many characters found this not very Heroic even if they did understand his reasoning.]]

!![[{{VideoGame/Persona4}} Tohru Adachi]]
!!!Super High School Level Rookie Cop

[[spoiler:The true, or "second", mole and the culprit of Week 9 (Case 8).]]

* {{Adorkable}}: To a ''ridiculous'' degree. He fails hard at a lot of things and can be very silly.
* TheAtoner: For both his canon actions and in-game actions now.
* AscendedMeme: Cabbages are now this for him in canon, so of course they had to come up in the game at least ''once''. He actually talks to them and believes they're his "friends" during the Monkey Fever event.
* BeneathTheMask: Was always a given considering it's the very theme of his canon but [[spoiler:Case 8 revealed just how messed up and two faced he actually is under his dorky exterior.]]
* BecomingTheMask: [[spoiler:An unintended effect of murder school that helped finally push him off the edge.]]
* ButtMonkey: Very quickly shaped up to be one, with a lot of events seemingly designed to humiliate him in public.
* CoveredWithScars: Discovered in week 1 that he's got several scars all over his body that he doesn't remember receiving at all.
* CriminalAmnesiac: With the round's memory loss element, [[spoiler:he forgets any remorse or attachment he grew later on in his canon. This led to him becoming the mole.]]
* CryLaughing: Did this after [[spoiler:killing {...}, who was his best friend and partner.]]
* DistressedDude: Had to be saved ''twice'' in one day by Naomi during Case 7. Once from Audrey III during the investigation and then again from [[spoiler: Monobear losing his shit ''right next to him'' when Kirei died before his execution.]] Both times he just froze up.
** Although the second time at least [[spoiler:it was because Monobear and him were at the time still on good terms. So it was more of a moment of concern for his "boss" on Adachi's part.]]
* FirstNameBasis: Gives Sonico permission to call him "Tohru" during week 2. Also lets Cynthia get away with this but mostly because he never found the right time to talk to her about it.
* GoodScarsEvilScars: Has a number of ominous-looking scars that he doesn't remember receiving. [[spoiler:Turns out that they're from his boss battle with the Investigation Team. The large one in particular is from his Persona getting bisected at the torso in the anime.]]
* HeelFaceDoorSlam: [[spoiler:In Week 9, he remembered being told that it wasn't too late for him and that he could change. This prompted him to examine everything he'd been doing up to that point and try to change, but when he tried to quit being Monobear's mole, he was instead forced into a SadisticChoice, and asking {...} what to do only frustrated him to the point where his rage took over; when he realized he'd killed his friend, he decided that he'd ''be'' a villain, then, and went forward with the plan to frame Beat for the crime.]]
* HiddenDepths: Constantly comes off as bumbling or stupid, but proved himself to be a capable detective on a couple of cases. Other people started noticing this too, much to his surprise.
* HonoraryUncle: Not to anyone specifically in game, but despite having no kids of his own he still received a Father's Day regain... from Nanako Dojima, his partner's daughter. The header for the regain comment said "Happy Weird Uncle Day".
* IronicEcho: [[spoiler:"You can still start over."]] Ends up doubling as an [[spoiler: internal MadnessMantra when he finally snaps in the case 8 murder log.]]
* LastNameBasis: Introduced himself only by his last name to most people; to find his first name you would have had to look at his Student Profile.
* MoralDilemma: And ''how''.
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: He certainly doesn't feel guilty for ''everything'' he's done, even if he really, really should, but [[spoiler:killing his friend and partner was not exactly what he'd wanted]].
* NamesTheSame: With FruitsBasket's Tohru Honda, which becomes a plot point in the second trial.
* OfficialCouple: He asked Sonico out on a date during week 3, but they became official for sure by the end of week 4.
* OlderThanTheyLook: While not to the same extent as Hanbei, you'd still never guess just by looking at him that the guy's almost ''30''. "Tohru Adachi is nearly 30 years old" even turned into an OOC RunningGag, usually said whenever he's being a ManChild.
* OneNoteCook: Tamagoyaki became his one note dish after Sonico taught him how in week 8. During week 9 he kept attempting it on his own with varying results. According to his player though [[spoiler:he finally got it right the morning of the day he died.]]
* PoliceAreUseless: Not surprising, given the setting. Still tries to do his part as a police officer now and then, such as trying to stop the underage characters from drinking alcohol. It isn't very effective.
* TrashOfTheTitans: By the end of the game, Adachi's room is a disaster zone, most of the mess apparently caused [[spoiler:during the time he holed himself up in his room prior to his murdering {...}.]] He even left his [[spoiler:murder weapon]] out in the open on his desk for others to see!
** Shortly after the game ended, the Persona 4 Golden anime jossed the idea that Adachi would be a messy slob, instead showing his actual apartment to be [[http://i.imgur.com/M9PRwMJ.jpg surprisingly neat and tidy]], suggesting he might be more of a NeatFreak than his appearance would lead you to believe. This makes the state of his room during week 9 into some unintentional FridgeHorror:. [[spoiler:it only further shows just how badly that week was messing him up.]]
* YouCantGoHomeAgain: [[spoiler:Even if he'd wanted to -- he's in the Future Foundation's custody and eventually chooses to settle down in Kalos.]]
* VillainousBreakdown: [[spoiler:During his trial. ''Big time''.]]
--->'''Adachi''': [[spoiler:Just hate me, okay!? Hate me for the murderer I am! That's easier on everyone!]]
* ZeroApprovalGambit: [[spoiler:Attempts this during his trial, to make it easier for the other students to vote for him. How well it actually worked is debatable.]]

!![[VisualNovel/FateStayNight Kirei Kotomine]]
!!!Super High School Level Exorcist

[[spoiler: The culprit of Case 7.]]

* AmnesiacsAreInnocent: Started with no recollection of half of ''LightNovel/FateZero'' or any of VisualNovel/FateStayNight.
* AtLeastIAdmitIt: [[spoiler:When he's cornered as the murderer in Case 7's trial, he laughs and throws it back at the other students: didn't ''they'' kill, too, by voting to execute all the guilty students?]]
* BadassBaritone: CrispinFreeman or JojiNakata, take your pick.
* BiggerBad: [[spoiler: Outdoes everyone in sheer strength and capacity for evil to the point where the mastermind took precautions against him. ''After he was dead''. See DeathIsCheap below.]]
* DeadManWriting: [[spoiler:[[http://blackmass.dreamwidth.org/997.html To Schuldig.]] ]]
* DeadpanSnarker: Producing some of the best lines in the game.
* DeathIsCheap: [[spoiler:'Died' once in ''LightNovel/FateZero'' and once in ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight''. After case 7, players ''doubted his third death would stick''. ]]
** [[spoiler: In-universe, acknowledged in the Graduation trial by Lysandre, [[http://danganroleplay.dreamwidth.org/22311.html?thread=16945191#cmt16945191 who was even expecting him to crash the final trial and made provisions for it just in case.]]]]
* DesperatelyLookingForAPurposeInLife: He doesn't know why he was born the way he was or what he should do with his life.
* DissonantSerenity: Unusually calm about the 'murder your classmates to leave' idea.
* TheDreaded: [[spoiler:''By the Mastermind.'']]
* EmptyEyes: Permanently, which freaks some people out.
* FakeKillScare: When he was found unconscious, it was treated in-game as a corpse discovery until it turned out he was alive. [[spoiler:Well, sort of. He was already kind of dead to begin with and he'd received a [[NormallyIWouldBeDeadNow fatal wound]] on top of that.]]
* FromNobodyToNightmare: He went from an amicable if quietly unsettling amnesiac in Week 1 to [[http://danganroleplay.dreamwidth.org/19020.html?thread=14967116#cmt14967116 this]] in Week 8. [[spoiler: Debatable, since he was an EmpoweredBadassNormal from the start.]]
* HeartTrauma: ''And how.'' [[spoiler: It's been replaced by [[GodOfEvil Angra Mainyu]].]]
* HellIsThatNoise: [[spoiler: Terrifyingly, his [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jKj8ThKVtso#t=426 laughing.]] ]]
* HeelRealization: [[spoiler: Had one years ago, but underlined it when he willingly voted for himself in Inaba and Fujimoto's murder.]]
* ItAmusedMe: [[spoiler:He killed his victims because he was bored of the routine of murder school and only suffering made him happy.]]
* KarmaHoudini: [[spoiler: Dies right before Monobear can execute him.]]
* NightmareFuelStationAttendant: Especially after [[spoiler: nonchalantly revealing the unholy mass of shadows where his heart should have been.]]
* TheOnlyOneAllowedToDefeatYou: Basically his response to [[spoiler: Lysandre's]] death after the fifth trial.
* ReluctantPsycho: [[spoiler:It didn't last. Once he got his memories back, he was very happy to be unable to care about anything but misfortune.]]
* StepfordSmiler: Almost ''constantly''.
* TokenEvilTeammate: [[spoiler:There are a few other examples, but Kirei seems to be unsettling even to the other less than moral 'students'. Even in the end, everyone is confused as to why Kirei was on ''anything'' resembling a "good side", himself especially.]]
--> [[spoiler: '''Kirei:''' If I actually enjoyed myself yesterday, you would be dead and I'd have been executed.]]
* TokenReligiousTeammate: Him and Homura, and she goes from very religious to cynical nonbeliever to... [[AGodAmI well.]]
* VillainousFriendship: With Schuldig. Very, ''very'' close to bordering on UnholyMatrimony.
* VillainWithGoodPublicity: Momentarily became this [=OOCly=] after kicking Dan into a pool full of tea.
-->'...and Kirei Kotomine becoming a hero of the people for a brief, shining moment...'

!![[Literature/ExquisiteCorpse Vinh Tran]]
!!!Super High School Level Transience

[[spoiler:The victim of case 1.]]

* TheCanKickedHim: [[spoiler:Found dead on the toilet.]]
* CounterpartComparison: {{invoked}} A promiscuous, vulgar, and pessimistic character who doesn't care what others think, Tran was pegged as Round 2's Madison. [[spoiler:Aside from being the first death instead of part of the survivor pool, that is.]] This is brought up [[InUniverse ICly]] [[spoiler:in the epi-log between the characters themselves]].
* DullSurprise: Upon [[spoiler:coming BackFromTheDead]]. He was high at the time.
* MeaningfulName: And related title. [[spoiler:As the first victim of the season, he certainly was the most transient.]]
* MistakenForAfterlife: When he learned what the Game actually was, he thought Hope's Peak was the afterlife and that they were ''all'' dead.
* MistakenForSubculture: Took every term related to the Reapers' Game as relating to some kind of weird sex group.
* SacrificialLamb: [[spoiler:As the first victim.]]
* SlippingAMickey: Being the resident drug dealer, Tran assumes that this is how they got kidnapped.
* YouCantGoHomeAgain: His home situation is... something to avoid, but he'd rather not think of that.
--> "He likes pretending he can still go back to New Orleans."

!![[{{Literature/Animorphs}} Elfangor-Sirinial-Shamtul]]
!!!Super High School Level Prince

[[spoiler: One of the culprits in Week 5 (Case 4).]]

* BumblingDad: He's usually dignified, but he has no idea how to act like an authority figure to the kids who need a parent, [[spoiler:particularly his actual kid]].
* ExitPursuedByABear: [[spoiler:His execution, which was also a callback to Tobias' girlfriend, Rachel.]]
* FaceDeathWithDignity: [[spoiler:He doesn't try to fight or run, just stands there accepting it.]]
* FamilyHonor: Andalites, being basically four-legged telepathic space samurai, have this in spades.
** [[spoiler: Ultimately his motive for murdering Jay to avenge his son.]]
* HumanityIsInfectious: Spent a lot of time in human morph.
* LastRequest: A few.
** [[spoiler: Asked Sycamore to not let [Jay and Tobias', along with all the other culprits/victims before]'s deaths be in vain]]
** [[spoiler: Asked Schuldig to find Tobias' friends (including Elfangor's own brother, Aximili) and tell them what happened.]]
---> [[spoiler: Tell them he made his father proud.]]
* OutlivingOnesOffspring: [[spoiler:Only until he was executed later for avenging his son's murder.]]
* TooHappyToLive: [[spoiler:Genre-savvy players pegged him as the week's culprit when Tobias turned up dead ''the week after Father's Day'', when they had found out the truth about their relationship.]]
* WouldHurtAChild: [[spoiler:Jay was ''16''. In all fairness, though, Elfangor found him immediately after Jay had murdered Tobias, who was ''even younger''.]]

!![[Webcomic/HannaIsNotABoysName {...}]]
!!!Super High School Level Undead

[[spoiler:The victim of Week 9 (Case 8).]]

* AccidentalMisnaming: Virtually guaranteed thanks to [=HiNaBN=]'s abrupt non-ending and the NoNameGiven applied in canon. The name associated with him on his student profile is "Dick Walker".
* BigBrotherInstinct: Toward some of the younger students (namely Sonico, Anna and Beat) with a heavy dash of TeamMom.
* GlowingEyelightsOfUndeath: Caused both Cynthia and Ike to mistake him for a Risen when they first met him.
* GoodScarsEvilScars: Averted; he's covered in scars including an '''autopsy scar and multiple stab wounds on his back''' (pretty much all of which were seen by anyone at the King's Game in Week 5 after Naomi dared him to get naked). All are closed with thick black thread.
* LosingYourHead: [[spoiler:Became little more than a head Week 7. Ended up being carried around by Naomi for the weeks following.]]
* OccultDetective: A zombie who investigates supernatural mysteries.
* OfficialCouple: Beginning in Week 7 with Naomi. [[spoiler:They eventually move in together and raise their kids in Kalos.]]
* OnlySaneMan: Everyone else is immature, secretly evil, wallowing in their own angst, or some combination of the three.
* ReviveKillsZombie: [[spoiler:Averted. It instead makes him alive again rather than undead.]]
* StealthPun: The name given on his student ID literally means ''Detective Zombie''.
* TheStoic: And not the only one in these parts. (Looking at you, Lysandre.)

!![[VideoGame/SamuraiWarriors Hanbei Takenaka]]
!!!Super High School Level Tactician

[[spoiler: The victim of Case 5.]]

* ChunkySalsaRule: [[spoiler:So much so that even the mods used the phrase to describe the mess where his head used to be.]] And then Cynthia slipped and fell in it...
* FishOutOfTemporalWater: Most characters were from far after his time and many knew his historical significance.
* TheFutureIsShocking: He will never get used to modern people's propensity towards obscure dirty jokes.
* NiceHat: He never gets rid of it.
* OlderThanTheyLook: No, really, he's not twelve.
* ObfuscatingStupidity: Supposed to be a brilliant strategist, but doesn't act like it. Sometimes, it's [[GoneToTheFuture not on purpose]], though.
** Used this to his advantage when he [[spoiler: made saltpeter out of modern ingredients,]] leading some of his classmates to believe he couldn't possibly have [[spoiler: made the bomb that killed him]] himself.
* YourHeadASplode: [[spoiler:Blew up his own head.]]

!![[LightNovel/KokoroConnect Himeko Inaba]]
!!!Super High School Level Analyst

[[spoiler: One of the victims of Case 7.]]

* DefrostingIceQueen: Brought from after she'd defrosted in canon but memory-wiped to before, so she could defrost all over again.
* DyingClue: [[spoiler:"Kotozute".]]
* EmbarrassingNickname: Brought from canon as her username and finally used in-game in the epi-log.
* EvilLaugh: Does it a few times, apparently solely to freak people out.
* ICanLiveWithThat: When the Mastermind calls the class and people at large selfish and short-sighted, she'll admit that ''she'' is, and she's okay with that.
* InSeriesNickname: Has a couple in canon, but Adachi always called her Ine-chan (referring to the first character of her name) to avoid confusion with the town of the same name that he lived in.
* LastNameBasis: Hates her first name, so was only ever known this way. The only one allowed to use her first name is [[spoiler: Sonico and only after Inaba died.]]

!!Miriam Tristesse
!!!Super High School Level Mirror

[[spoiler:The culprit of case 1.]]

* BewareTheQuietOnes: Miriam is shy and never speaks up much. [[spoiler:She was almost completely silent in her own investigation and trial, both in hopes that she'd get away with it and out of guilt.]]
* BitterAlmonds: [[spoiler:How she killed Vinh Tran.]]
* EnemyWithin: Her "original", Maryam. She's stated to be dead, but takes over Miriam's body once, belittles her constantly in the back of her mind, and apparently created Miriam [[GrandTheftMe just to use her as a new body]].
* MasterOfIllusion: Though she hides those powers out of shame.
* ShipTease: With Jay, who [[spoiler:stands up to Maryam and pushes Miriam to fight back and take her life for her own]]. The ship isn't confirmed by the end, but the last time we see them, the other girls are teasing Miriam about it and she's blushing at the thought of Jay noticing her.
* WhatMeasureIsANonUnique: [[spoiler: As a reflection, this is the nature of Miriam's desire to keep her secret secret - she believed she would be considered less valuable.]]
* YamatoNadeshiko: Came off as this to others.

!![[Anime/WeissKreuz Schuldig]]
!!!Super High School Level Telepath

[[spoiler:Made it to the survivor pool.]]

* ArcWords: More like Arc Circumstances - being on the wrong floor of the school to prevent a tragedy.
* ComingOfAgeStory: His relationship with Lysandre boils down to one of these, starting from Schuldig accepting Lysandre as his leader in Week 1 and [[spoiler: growing into one himself by the Graduation Exam.]]
--> [[spoiler: "So let's see if I'm worth it, Lysandre. Your pride ''and'' your title."]]
* ExactWords: Though not quite as much of a RulesLawyer as Lysandre, Schuldig's managed to find a few ways of bending the school rules this way.
* HowDareYouDieOnMe: Nearly launched into this upon discovering Kirei's body. [[spoiler: He was only unconscious.]]
** Of course, then [[spoiler: Kirei died on him anyway, a few hours later at the trial.]]
* ImpossiblyTackyClothes: Remarked upon by fellow classmates so often it's become a RunningGag.
** Also a case of SerialEscalation: the outfit he wears to each Class Trial is worse than the last week's. Considering that he wore a women's swimsuit to the first, it's a hard thing to do. To the third class trial, he wore ''Tobias''. [[spoiler:And in the epilogue, he wore Monobear.]]
* JerkassHasAPoint: ''And how''. Often takes the form of a TheReasonYouSuckSpeech.
** [[spoiler: At the ninth trial, he delivered one that proved to be more of a "The Reason ''We'' Suck" Speech.]]
* NarrativeProfanityFilter: Refers to [[spoiler:Junko, whom he's only ever heard about,]] as a "[REDACTED]".
* NoodleImplements: "I also want the biggest cardboard box you've got, a curtain rod, a pair of cardboard tubes from those rolls of Christmas wrapping paper, and about five rolls of duct tape."
* PragmaticVillainy: Despite having no qualms about the ''act'' of killing someone, Schuldig frequently acknowledges that he couldn't graduate without throwing the handful of people he ''does'' like under the bus as well, and therefore won't.
* RulesLawyer: Ascended by the end of Week 7. And looks as though he's training Anna to be one as well...
* TeamDad: Started past the point of [[spoiler: Lysandre's death]]. Seems pretty confirmed by the end of Week 9, as he looks out for everyone else.
* TheTease: Play-flirts with pretty much all his friends and claims to ship them as well.
* TryNotToDie: He's heard this from a ''lot'' of people, many of whom ended up dead themselves.
* UnfortunateNames: Translates to 'Guilty Butcher'. ''In a game about murder''.
** Which leads to Cammy (the resident ''Franchise/AceAttorney'' character) being ''certain'' he's gonna be the first murderer, because he's got the right kind of name.
** He also points it out himself. "When everyone calls you guilty just by saying your name..."
* VillainousFriendship: With Kirei, in a way. After [[spoiler:Kirei's execution]] and various adventures involving crayon-scrawled greeting cards and a cardboard box, he's also becoming a FriendlyEnemy of ''Monobear''.
** As of the epic dance battle in week 10, Schuldig's friendship with Monobear has easily entrenched itself firmly in GoKartingWithBowser territory.

!![[Anime/PonyoOnTheCliffByTheSea Fujimoto]]
!!!Super High School Level Wizard

[[spoiler: One of the victims of Case 7.]]

* AscendedMeme: After weeks of being referred to OOCly as "Seadad", it finally showed up in-character. [[spoiler: And then he died and became Sea''dead''.]]
* KillAllHumans: His DarkSecret was his desire to do this, which he eventually developed out of.
* LeaningOnTheFourthWall: Apparently Fujimoto is a big fan of [[{{Film/Taken}} Taken]]. Also doubles as a ShoutOut.
* MeaningfulName: The last name given to him on his student profile is Nanaumi. While there's no written kanji associated with it, it might be read "seven seas", though that would usually be read as "Nanami".
* RunningGag: Fujimoto wearing sandwich bags filled with water as shoes.

!![[Manga/FruitsBasket Saki Hanajima]]
!!!Super High School Level Empath

[[spoiler:The culprit of case 2.]]

* DullSurprise: When the second body is found and everyone's freaking out, her only response is "How unpleasant..." and musing about not getting refreshments. [[spoiler:This really should have tipped everyone off.]]
* NamesTheSame: With [[{{VideoGame/Persona4}} Persona 4]]'s Saki Konishi, which comes up in the second trial.

!!Monobear

* ActionBomb: Monobears explode if damaged.
* EvilLaugh: "Upupupu~"
* KillerTeddyBear: Though usually he's trying to make other people kill one another instead, he has been responsible personally for a number of deaths.
* LoopholeAbuse: ''Especially'' near the ends of both rounds. In both, he tries to use his abilities as Headmaster [[spoiler:(and certain other abilities -- dead student data in Round 1, his inserting himself as a student in Round 2)]] to frame an optimistic hero type for a murder he arranged, albeit in different ways.

'''Round One'''

* ADogNamedDog: Considering Round 2 [[spoiler:and its Monobear deciding that "Monobear" is just a name for what they ''are'', that makes Round 1's Monobear this.]]
* ContagiousAI: [[spoiler:Created to infect ''everything'' with despair by downloading Junko into people's brains.]]
* EvilIsPetty: Rigged a trial to try and convict an innocent person and later said it was because he was bored.
* SignificantBirthdate: Christmas, naturally. [[spoiler:It's still Junko behind there, after all.]]

'''Round Two'''

* ExactWords: "I only hire one mole at a time." [[spoiler:There was a second, but the first had approached him himself.]] This comes back later as a ChekhovsBoomerang, when [[spoiler:it turns out that there really was only one mole. The first was the Mastermind casting suspicion off himself.]]
* GoKartingWithBowser: With Schuldig, of all people, and Beat by week 10. [[spoiler: To the point where Beat threatening not to play with him anymore actually led to a straight answer from the sadistic bear.]]
* VillainsOutShopping: When he's not plotting motives and running trials, as of Round Two Monobear has seemed willing to play games with the students.
** It's been noted by a few characters that Monobear is showing several CreepyChild tendencies this time around. It makes you wonder...

'''Disney Ronpa'''

* AristocratsAreEvil: This one is apparently a Lord ([[AuthorityInNameOnly or thinks he is]]) and lives in a castle.
* EvilCounterpart: Viewed as Pooh's by some of the students.
* HorrifyingTheHorror: His idea of fun is enough to freak out even the "scary" students. Except Bill.
* MakeWayForTheNewVillains: [[http://danganroleplay.dreamwidth.org/27935.html?thread=20635679#cmt20635679 Implies]] that he bumped off or demoted Chernabog.

'''Round 2'''
* CloneByConversion: [[spoiler:In backstory, she tried to do this to Lysandre. [[BatmanGambit He anticipated this]] and used a combination of willpower and too much of his own amnesia drug to wipe her out of his mind after [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness he was done needing her help]]. Even so, some of the characters suspect at first that Junko actually succeeded.]]
* DeathOfPersonality: [[spoiler:Instead of doing this to Lysandre as she'd intended, she has this done to her.]]
* PersonalEffectsReveal: They receive a "cameo" of sorts... or their stuff does. [[spoiler:Cynthia picks up her hairclips and Schuldig finds a phone that Henri bedazzled -- comparing the description in the text to its appearance in [=SDR2=], it's most likely made to look just like Junko's.]]
* PosthumousCharacter: In Round 2, where a lot of their influence is felt and their exploits in Round 1 [[spoiler:and before]] are crucial to discovering the truth about this round. [[spoiler:Well, technically she's already dead in Round 1, too...]]

Endgame spoilers.

!!Henri Armael

A student with no title. [[spoiler:Actually Monobear, having given himself a name and a student identity; for main character tropes unrelated to this reveal, see the "Round 2" section under "Monobear".]]

* AIIsACrapshoot: [[spoiler:Started out as a perfect AI copy of Monobear. Then developed loneliness and wanted to play less fatal games too.]]
* AmbiguousInnocence: Treats the murder game as a game like any other.
* ButNowIMustGo: In the end, despite cries for an explanation. Then it turns out that he just [[spoiler:went back to the main computer when the power went out.]]
* CreepyChild: A happy kid whose idea of fun isn't always innocent or safe...
* CreepyCute: He's absolutely ''adorable'' [[spoiler: despite being, y'know, Monobear.]]
* CuteMachines: [[spoiler:Being a robot and all.]]
* EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep: [[spoiler:Made up his own name and decided that "Monobear" was just his species name.]]
* FunSize: Sort of. [[spoiler: The disarmed body that he occupies when the survivors take him with them is noted to be smaller and lighter than the regular Monobear bodies.]]
* TheGlomp: In his tearful reunion with his father.
* MeaningfulName: [[spoiler:"King Bear Prince". He's a bear and his creator is a descendant of deposed royalty who introduced himself in-game as a prince. For bonus points, it's also French. Or should we say Kalosian?]]
** The in-universe explanation stems from [[spoiler:one of the "games" he played with Schuldig - when they were playing pirates, he styled himself Captain Henry E''bear''y. Henry Every is widely considered to basically be the winner of piracy, if such a title can be bestowed, since he made off with one of the most infamous hauls in history and ''was never arrested or killed''. Pretty big dreams for a little bear.]]
* MissingMom: The reason he's closer to his father, despite often imagining what she was like and using arts-and-crafts supplies to draw pictures of himself with her and reconstruct her stuff. In the ending log, he complains, "I can't even remember her!" [[spoiler:"Her" being ''Junko'', who was responsible for much of his construction and after whom the Headmaster Protocol his initial personality followed was modelled.]]
* NotEvilJustMisunderstood: Sort of. He ''is'' pretty evil [[spoiler:the way he was programmed. The traits he developed on his own, however, are earnest and innocent.]]
** It's later revealed that [[spoiler:he was following the "Headmaster protocols" during the game, which are separate from his main programming and require an access code from Lysandre to activate.]] It was only after [[spoiler:Lysandre was able to help out masterminding behind the scenes that he was able to express his natural, curious programming.]] This makes sense because [[spoiler:the virus that Henri is programmed off of originally cribbed off of the code for Miss Usami.]]
* SempaiKohai: Upon finding Henri's happy drawings of [[spoiler:Monobear and Junko]], Beat theorizes that Henri idolizes [[spoiler:Junko as the leader of SHSL Despair]] and largely wants senpai to notice him.
* SignificantAnagram: The name also rearranges to "Alien Harmer", which would certainly apply to someone involved in a plot to pull people from their worlds into a killing game. [[spoiler:Plus his creator's victim last round was an alien.]]
* YouAreNotAlone: In a way, invokes this with [[spoiler:his "father," Lysandre]] during their execution. Also doubles as a callback to the round's CentralTheme: [[spoiler:even ''Monobear'' is capable of alleviating the suffering of others.]]

!!The Mastermind ([[spoiler:Lysandre "Kokinos"]])
!!![[spoiler:Super High School Level Leader]]

For main story character tropes, see [[spoiler:the "Round 2" section under "Lysandre".]]

* AtLeastIAdmitIt: "The blood on my hands is undeniable, but are you willing to take responsibility for that which covers yours?"
* EnemyMine: [[spoiler:Lysandre hated Junko too and he blamed her for his predicament just as much as he blamed the Future Foundation, but having her in his head brought an extremely useful way for them both to put aside their differences to get revenge on the latter.]]
* FaceDeathWithDignity: [[spoiler:He walks to the guillotine and kneels of his own volition. No dragging, force, or coercion required.]]
* GoodScarsEvilScars: Has three slashes on their face.
* HeelFaceMole: [[spoiler:Over the course of two games.]]
* HeroicWillpower: Heavily implied to be the reason [[spoiler: the Junko virus was unable to take total control of him and eventually faded away.]]
* HijackedByGanon: Double subverted. [[spoiler:The Junko virus downloaded itself into Lysandre's brain, but she didn't overwrite or overtake him, only shared headspace with him. By the time of the final trial, she's already gone.]]
* LastNameBasis: With [[spoiler:former headmate "Miss Enoshima".]]
* LoveInterestTraitor: [[spoiler:To Sycamore, whom he truly loved and couldn't bear to kill, but knew he couldn't turn or leave alone, hence his putting him into the murder game.]]
* OffingTheOffspring: Accused of this by Beat in the final trial. [[spoiler:He didn't, and he only reveals this in the end.]]
* OurDragonsAreDifferent: The Mastermind's non-Monobear [[TheDragon Dragon]] is an ''actual'' dragon [[spoiler:in all but type]]. This was only a small part of the MassOhCrap at their reveal.
* ProtectedByAChild: [[spoiler:Henri rigged the last PC-death trial to try and kill everyone only because he was afraid they'd find and hurt the Mastermind.]]
* RedAndBlackAndEvilAllOver: Much like the original Mastermind's fashion sense. [[spoiler:Except he already dressed that way and it's not inspired by Junko.]]
* SoProudOfYou: A very twisted version to the survivors in the Graduation Exam. The Mastermind is proud that they managed to make it through the meat grinder and are thus the "chosen ones".
* VisionaryVillain: Wants to "improve" the multiverse by getting rid of the weak and selfish, and the killing game is only one of their plans to do this.

!![[spoiler:[[VideoGame/PokemonXAndY Serena]]]]

[[spoiler: Sycamore's student and Lysandre's once-enemy. She saved the region once before (or at least attempted, as Lysandre was pulled into Round 1 at that moment), but was unable to stop him a second time. However, thanks to receiving a psychic warning, she managed to survive the Ultimate Weapon.]]

* CultureClash: Extremely confused about the students' worlds and how they work.
* DeadHatShot: [[spoiler:In one of Sycamore's motive videos, she was implied to have died with a video of her hat torn up and laying in a pool of blood. Though the footage was faked, when she appears in the ending log, she has indeed lost her hat.]]
* ForWantOfANail: The events of Round 1 seriously derailed her canon. [[spoiler:Even if you take into account that Lysandre likely disappeared just as she was going to fight him and she still got the credit and presume that the second Incident happened post-canon, a few things are still certain: Serena did not capture Yveltal or destroy the Ultimate Weapon (either of which would have prevented the Incident) and both player character canonmates and the narration state that Diantha is still the Champion, thus Serena never dethroned her. ...Well, and then there's the whole "apocalypse actually happening" thing.]]
* HairOfGoldHeartOfGold: [[spoiler:Despite being a customizable character in the game, here she's depicted with the appearance she has in official art.]]
* YouAreTooLate: [[spoiler:She led the Future Foundation rescue party to the Ultimate Weapon ''after'' everyone had finally escaped.]]
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Disney Ronpa Characters]]

Due to this being a gimmick round, endgame [=NPCs=] are included in this folder rather than a separate one. Anna returns from Round 2 in addition to the characters below.

!![[Disney/TheLittleMermaid Ariel]]
!!!Super High School Level Collector

[[spoiler:Made it to the survivor pool.]]

* AlienAmongUs: Trying to pass herself off as human while tripping over her own legs, marvelling at food, and mixing up animals.
* CollectorOfTheStrange: You thought she was bad in canon? She's hoarding condiments and coffee machines in her room and wants one of everything interesting she can find.
* CovertPervert: She really appreciated the first "everybody strip" of the round...
* CryLaughing: At the first murderer's confession. She was very worn out.
* DeclarationOfProtection: Promises to keep Naveen safe [[spoiler:as Perry goes to his death]].
** Mirrors the one that Naveen gives her, after she turns him human again.
* GoshDarnItToHeck: Almost verbatim, too!
* ImAHumanitarian: Not really, but after her horror at having eaten fish sticks, she gets very suspicious of the Chicken of the Sea shrimp can in the pantry for fear that its mermaid mascot represents its contents.
* KleptomaniacHero: Aside from all her hoarding (including one of the victims' ''heads'', which she was going to bury if they ever got to a body of water bigger than the showers), when the endgame brings up a stolen {{MacGuffin}}, she immediately leaps to wanting to steal it back.
* ManicPixieDreamGirl: According to Naveen, anyway, who sees her strange behaviour as "refreshing". In reality, she's not even concerned with pulling average men out of their boredom, but with pulling ''herself'' out of it and immersing herself in all things human. Even if it means using cutlery for hair care and eating ice cream with her hands.
* MrViceGuy: Ariel, as in canon, is defined by her curiosity and silly assumptions but also very much by her selfishness and short-sightedness.
* SweetTooth: Discovering human food will do that to you. She ate jam straight from the jar!
* ThatWasNotADream: Her reaction on the [[SecondEpisodeMorning second day]] of murder school.
* ThreatBackfire: Monobear would probably have freaked her out more if she actually knew what "saute" meant.
* TrashOfTheTitans: Ariel made a complete mess of her room in under an hour, and this was ''before'' she started hoarding stuff.

!![[Anime/HowlsMovingCastle Howl Jenkins]]
!!!Super High School Level Heartbreaker

[[spoiler:The culprit of Week 2 (Case 1).]]

* ButHeSoundsHandsome: One of the first indications that he's actually [[spoiler:the first culprit]] is when he gets indignant at the suggestion that this person wasn't very bright.
* KillItWithFire: He wants this done with the portrait of him in the foyer, which just isn't pretty enough. [[spoiler:Ironically, it's also his execution method.]]
* {{Narcissist}}: Even Monobear refers to him as a "pretty boy".
* PowerDyesYourHair: It wears off after the curse, bringing back his black hair.
* TooIncompetentToOperateABlanket: ''Have you seen the man try to wash his clothes''?
* TragicMonster: Though his vanity was the outward reason for being appalled at becoming a bird, he also feared being stuck that way forever because he'd eventually lose his sense of self. [[spoiler:He confesses this to Elsa, leaving her to know the truth while everyone else thinks he killed out of petty selfishness.]]
* VainSorceress: A gender-flip of the trope as usual. He felt bad for the other cursed students... until he realized that he'd turned back into a monstrous bird. Then all of his pity was reserved for himself and he became a sulky, inconsolable mess.

!![[WesternAnimation/GravityFalls Bill Cipher]]
!!!Super High School Level [[labelnote:???]]Conf̸͍̜̪̘̹̦̤̐͒ͮ̓̇̅͌̑͝i̢͛ͨͧ̈ͭ͌̾̓ͦ͌̒̋̃ͬ̔͏̵̴̢͈̱̣̣̦͙͓̮̭̖̮̪̲̤̫̳̤r͙͕͖̖̗̻̒͋͛͒̐͊̽̈́́̕͜͟ẵͭͫ͊ͦ̒̀̐ͦͫ̚҉̶͚̯̼͍̤s̶̍ͬ̉̍́̃̄̂̇͒̾ͭ̂̎̌͋͡҉҉̖͕͙͕̲̘̻̫̯̘̤̻́t̷̡̛̯̠̠̭̟͔͙̙̹̬̟̦̗̥̤̝̣ͫͦ͊͘͝[[/labelnote]]

[[spoiler:The culprit of Week 3 (Case 2).]]

* BecauseYouWereNiceToMe: He's still evil, sadistic, and very much messed-up, but [[spoiler:Naveen actually taking the time to ask why he is the way he is, when all the heroic types Bill's met before have taken him as just a twisted enemy who needs to be stopped without question,]] made him start to call him a friend and even ''flirt'' with the guy. Similarly, he feels a little disappointed when [[spoiler:he resigns himself to going through with his plan to murder Anna]], being down the one person who had actually held one conversation with him that didn't boil down to "you're a disgusting creep and should go die".
* BlackSpeech: His title is written out in "grimdark text", making it both ominous and illegible.
* BlondGuysAreEvil: He's blond as a human.
* BoringInsult: When others decry a murderer for, y'know, killing their fellow captive, Bill's only insults boil down to "couldn't you make it more interesting?".
* HateSink: In and out of character, though the players and audience largely find him a LoveToHate type. He's been described as inspiring "Komaeda-level hate" from the first trial.
* HumanityEnsues: He loves it! So many new opportunities.
* IHaveYouNowMyPretty: Kissing Naveen, [[spoiler:after the man has just been blindsided by Bill's reveal as Anna's murderer]]. Bill refers to it as crossing something off his bucket list.
* MyFriendsAndZoidberg: When discussing [[spoiler:the dead students, the survivors usually talk about "(their) friends... and Bill" or say they miss everyone but Bill]].
* TheNicknamer: Casually slings them around, usually based on physical attributes. (Pooh's "Claws" and Ariel's "Fins" came from the curse motive, but he still refers to them with those names afterwards.)
* NoSenseOfPersonalSpace: Bill really likes creeping people out.
* NotMeThisTime: Twisted. He spent the first trial convincing the class to try and convict him only to pull everything out from under them and say that it wasn't him -- his murders would be ''much'' more fun! This just drew everyone to hate him.
* NotSoInvincibleAfterAll: Still thinks he's immortal. He eventually finds out otherwise...
* {{Troll}}: Spent much of the intro log impersonating the headmaster, and it gets worse from there.
* WillNotTellALie: Though he'll happily sit back and let everyone stumble without the information he's not giving them, he'll volunteer the truth when asked and never actually ''lie'' about anything. Being framed in one case and [[spoiler:written off in the one where he actually ''did'' do it]] were absolutely hilarious to him, even up to the point where he had to fess up.

!![[Disney/{{Frozen}} Elsa]]
!!!Super High School Level Recluse

[[spoiler:The victim of Week 4 (Case 3).]]

* BrokenPedestal: She really looked up to her fellow magic users, especially for their pride and openness about their powers. [[spoiler:Howl killing Iridessa to escape his curse]] absolutely shook her.
* EmotionlessGirl: Becomes muted and closed-off after [[spoiler:Anna dies and Elsa blames herself for it]].
* FirstNameBasis: Elsa starts insisting on this with Naveen after the first trial, making up for not having had friends in the past.
* FlowersForAlgernonSyndrome: In the first motive, she lost her tragic backstory and became happier and better-adjusted, but she lost her memory of her sister, which was heartbreaking in and out of character all around.
* FoolishSiblingResponsibleSibling: On paper, she's the responsible one, and she tries to be that, but she depends just as much on Anna if not more.
* HeroicBSOD: Went completely blank and unresponsive when [[spoiler:Anna was killed. She was dragged into the trial this way]].
* SurvivorGuilt: Mirroring her sister's character arc in the previous round, Elsa falls into a pit of self-blame when she's the last to see [[spoiler:Anna herself before her death]].
* TokenLesbian: DRRP may have some straight people in it too, but the HoYay and actual confirmed same-sex ships alike have largely been relegated to men in this and other rounds save for R1's Juni/Roni, leaving Elsa this.
* TraumaButton: She's a cluster of these thanks to her frankly awful childhood of isolation, and they keep getting pushed.
* TraumaCongaLine: Pretty much the whole game, especially Case 2.

!![[Disney/ThePrincessAndTheFrog Naveen]]
!!!Super High School Level Playboy

[[spoiler:Made it to the survivor pool.]]

* ActuallyPrettyFunny: His reaction when he sees what Gaston and friends drew on his face.
* AirGuitar: Ariel catches him playing the air ukulele.
* BalefulPolymorph: Came into the game as a frog.
* BrokenSmile: Normally a smiling guy to begin with, but [[spoiler:his smile breaks (with a side of BrokenTears) while scrambling for some way to save Perry.]]
* ChivalrousPervert: Has hit on nearly every female in the castle, but finds them all fascinating and unique rather than fodder for sex. His protective streak towards them was apparent during the first trial.
* DistressedDude: After the outcome of the second trial is revealed, just about everyone jumps at the chance to come to Naveen's aid when [[spoiler: the culprit kisses Naveen by surprise]]. Somewhat subverted by the fact that Naveen throws the first punch.
** Happened again when [[spoiler:he fell into a coma]].
* FirstNameBasis: Upgrades to this with Elsa (who insists on it early) and Ariel (when [[spoiler:he proposes to her]]).
* HereWeGoAgain: The curse motive turned him back into a frog.
* InnocenceLost: The castle wears on him and breaks his idealism, and he starts to spite those who still have any.
-->''He wished he could just agree. Wished he could humor the bear and humor hope in himself, like he used to. Coasting through life without a care, because when you don't care nothing can touch you. With [[spoiler:Elsa's body]] cold a few feet from where he stood, he didn't have that luxury anymore. And, selfishly, he didn't want anyone else to either.''
* IronicEcho: Telling Gaston "You have your ways, I have mine". The first time, it was bragging about his love life; the second, about keeping faith that the students are good people even in murder school.
* LethalChef: Has never cooked in his life, and when he tries... um. Peanut butter in a frying pan does not equal peanut oil, okay, and you don't dump a whole container of peppers into it. (Not just any peppers, either. Dried chilies. Because they seemed "small." RIP Iridessa.)
* NakedPeopleAreFunny: Well, when he turned back into a human, he didn't have any (non-nerfed) all-powerful mages to give him some clothes...
* NotSoDifferent: Bill and Naveen. In their first real conversation beyond Naveen threatening to punch and/or gag Bill, Naveen realizes that Bill's claims to look for the silver linings in life and not take things so seriously sounded very familiar. [[spoiler: This backfired tremendously when it was revealed that Bill was Anna's murderer all along, leaving Naveen to wonder just what that similarity between them means.]]
* TheProudElite: His response to any mess is to let Monobear clean it up. Even before he knew the bear was out to make them kill each other, in which case he just assumed there were servants to do his work for him.
* RageBreakingPoint: Lashes out at Pooh for trying to "fix" a victim with needle and thread.
* ShelteredAristocrat: He provides the page quote for this trope and it's in full effect in DRRP. Taking care of himself is confusing and hard, okay?
* SpeaksFluentAnimal: As a side-effect of being a frog.
* StraightManAndWiseGuy: The fun-loving one to Perry's stoic.
* SupportingProtagonist: Originally seemed to be shaping up as the [[TheHeart Roxy/Sycamore figure]] of the team, but developed into [[TheHero the Jimmy/Beat]].

!![[Franchise/DisneyFairies Iridessa]]
!!!Super High School Level Light

[[spoiler:The victim of Week 2 (Case 1).]]

* IronicName: The last name assigned to her is O'Rinn -- "of ravens". As a six-inch fairy, she's afraid of predator animals.
* LightEmUp: Her control over light proves useful in investigating the secrets hidden on the main floor.
* MeatVersusVeggies: Having to rely on other people to obtain food that's anything close to small enough to eat is bad enough, but being used to [[{{Veganopia}} a setting where no one eats meat]] has led her to have to awkwardly explain that she doesn't a couple times, especially since most people cooking for everyone went straight for meat and seafood dishes. However, she's far from a StrawVegetarian about it, viewing meat-eating as just a kinda gross human thing.
* MouseWorld: How she has to function in a castle of humans, ScavengedPunk and all (though, as a light fairy instead of a tinker, she's not doing so well on that front).
* NervousWreck: She can get this way when something goes wrong. Anna and Ariel have both compared her to Elsa.
* PropheticName: [[spoiler:Guess what kills her?]]

!![[Literature/TheKingdomKeepers Terrence "Donnie" Maybeck]]
!!!Super High School Level Perspective

[[spoiler:Made it to the survivor pool.]]

* BigNo: When [[spoiler:Pooh sneaks past him to get at the honey while Maybeck's guarding the kitchen]] during the Snow White's Sleep motive.
* FawltyTowersPlot: With different lies told to different characters, having to MaintainTheLie for each, ''just'' so he doesn't have to fourth-wall anyone. He eventually had to break down during the second trial, when other characters started to PullTheThread thinking he was covering up [[MistakenForMurderer something else]].
* InsomniaEpisode: During the coma motive, Maybeck's existing unreality issues and anxiety over comas led him to avoid not just food (which was known to be the catalyst) but also sleep, just in case.
* IronicEcho: "What's the cost?" The answer, he muses, is sacrificing people for this horrible game.
* MetaGuy: Comes with recognizing everyone from fiction.
* NarrativeProfanityFilter: "The swear is 20% expletive and 80% wishing [[spoiler:Howl]] would . . . Something about Sleeping Beauty? Who knows."
* OutdatedOutfit: His blue pinstripe Dapper Dan suit, which looks absolutely dorky on him.
* PosthumousCharacter: Not Maybeck himself, but a lot of his internal monologue routes back to wondering what [[Creator/WaltDisney Uncle Walt]] would think or do.
* SirSwearsALot: Especially considering almost no one else does at all.
* UnknownRival: Maleficent is his ArchEnemy and he's ''incensed'' that she's apparently BackFromTheDead again... but [[AlternateSelf she's a different iteration]] who has no idea who he is.

!![[Disney/TheManyAdventuresOfWinnieThePooh Winnie the Pooh]]
!!!Super High School Level Honey Hunter

[[spoiler:Made it to the survivor pool.]]

* BearyFriendly: Providing a direct contrast to [[BearsAreBadNews Monobear]].
* BigEater: And he doesn't even need to eat. [[spoiler: Until the curse motive, anyway.]]
* GentleGiant: During the week where he was cursed to be a full-sized grizzly bear.
* TheHeart: Has become this to the remaining class, replacing Naveen after he started growing the ahoge.
* InnocenceLost: Starting from the very first trial, this really kicks in when Donald finally explicitly explains what it means when people stop moving. [[spoiler: By the end of the fourth trial, he ends up saying "I hate you" to Monobear.]]
* KindheartedSimpleton: He may be a bear of very little brain, but he's also a bear of very large heart.
* LukeYouAreMyFather: Assumed that Monobear was secretly related to him. Monobear rebuked this.
* MeatOVision: When everyone had to avoid eating, he started seeing everything as honey.
* MoralityPet: Seems to have become this to Gaston of all people.
* TheNeedless: Being a toy, he doesn't have any pressing physical needs, though he still gets hungry. Averted during the week where he became a real bear -- actually having to do things to live was his biggest shock.
* NeverLearnedToRead: At least not very long words.
* NeverSayDie: "Murderer" not being part of his vocabulary, Pooh has adopted various euphemisms for each culprit: [[OffWithHisHead head-taker-offer]], [[KillItWithFire burner-upper]], [[TamperingWithFoodAndDrink hot-chocolate-maker]], and [[TapOnTheHead head-hitter]].
* SeeminglyProfoundFool: Naveen has the impression that Pooh is a sarcastic genius from a world of horrors... somehow. Perry suspects he's secretly smarter than he looks, too.
* SpeaksFluentAnimal: He can understand Perry's speech.

!![[WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb Perry the Platypus]]
!!!Super High School Level Secret Agent

[[spoiler:The culprit of Week 5 (Case 4).]]

* DyingClue: [[spoiler:He leaves Naveen a clue in his hat pointing to where his last letters are hidden.]]
* EverythingsBetterWithPlatypi: Was already the page image, then he became a biologically accurate one for the curse motive.
* FateWorseThanDeath: Starts to think that his fate in the curse motive (becoming a ''realistic'' platypus) is this.
** This happens to Perry again in Week 5 when [[spoiler: he realizes that he can't live with himself for killing an innocent child.]]
* HeroicSacrifice: Even on a meta level. [[spoiler:His mun had considered opting him out of the death roll to spare the already emotionally tortured Naveen, but went through with it in case Naveen himself might die instead.]]
* MixAndMatchCritters: Some of his classmates assume he's a "beaver-duck."
* MyGreatestFailure: [[spoiler: Accidentally killing Sora.]]
* OccamsRazor: Taught this to Naveen to help him with cases. [[spoiler:In the end, it's how Naveen outs Perry as a culprit.]]
* OnlySaneMan: He constantly finds himself giving explanations to and talking sense into all these people from the past and supernatural creatures.
* StraightManAndWiseGuy: The serious one to Naveen's slacker.
* TeamDad: Perry has a soft spot for the younger/innocent students and becomes fiercely protective over them, especially Naveen when he's in a sleep-induced coma. [[spoiler:It's fitting how he ends up dying in Disney Ronpa that same week.]]
* ThisIsUnforgivable: Declares this after seeing the state of the second victim.
* WrongGenreSavvy: Perhaps appropriately, he seems to think he's in a spy movie and suspects Monobear to be a RogueAgent.
---->"This wasn't some kind of fairy tale, after all."

!![[Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast Gaston]]
!!!Super High School Level Huntsman

[[spoiler:Made it to the survivor pool.]]

* TheBeastmaster: Styles himself as this when he gets to ride a grizzly bear (a transformed Pooh, but details).
* BigEater: Raided the fridge to eat almost all the eggs by himself in one go. What did you expect?
* ButtMonkey: Already shaping up to be one.
* TheDungAges: Before Naveen forced him into the tub, it had been months since his last bath. Historical accuracy!
* FaceDoodling: Draws silly and occasionally obscene things on Naveen's face. Hey, when your classmate's unconscious for a week...
* HeartbreakAndIceCream: When the curse motive made him weak and noodly, he fell into a despair of ice cream and [[DrowningMySorrows beer]].
* ManlyTears: At [[spoiler:Naveen's DisneyDeath, despite having caused it.]]
* NeverLearnedToRead: Barely, anyway. Historical accuracy!
* StayInTheKitchen: Hilariously inverted in that Gaston is one of the few who knows how to cook well. Considering his attitudes towards women, this is more than a little ironic.
* TestosteronePoisoning: He lives and breathes it with zero sense of irony. If it can be considered MANLY, he'll do it with pride, if not, it's not worth his time.
* TookALevelInKindness: Has been gradually doing this over the course of his stay in the Tragic Kingdom. Still a {{Jerkass}} though.
* VillainWithGoodPublicity: For those who haven't gotten the chance to see the whole misogyny thing.

!!Film/{{Maleficent}}
!!!Super High School Level Fairy Godmother

[[spoiler:The culprit of Week 4 (Case 3).]]

* TheCynic: Flatly tells Bill that true love doesn't exist. She also doesn't believe from the start that they'll all get out fine.
* DeadpanSnarker: How she chooses to deal with all of this nonsense.
* TheFairFolk: Weaknesses to iron and flame, ChaoticNeutral mentality, wry and mysterious disposition, the works.
* IncredibleShrinkingMan: In the curse motive.
* PetTheDog: She calms her fellow fairy down from a panic attack after Monobear's first announcement and gives Elsa her cloak when she's having a HeroicBSOD.
* SetRightWhatOnceWentWrong: She was brought in after she started to regret cursing Aurora and was desperate to find a way to save her. [[spoiler:This regret led her to try to MercyKill Elsa to get herself a free change-the-past ticket like Jay's in Round 2.]]

!![[WesternAnimation/TheNightmareBeforeChristmas Jack Skellington]]
!!!Super High School Level Scream Cultivator

[[spoiler:Made it to the survivor pool.]]

* ConditionedToAcceptHorror: Much like Cecil before him, he weirds the other students out by waxing nostalgic about screaming candy and living toys that steal body parts.
* CuriousAsAMonkey: Yes, let's stick our head in the washing machine to figure out what it does, shall we.
* HumanityEnsues: Unlike Bill's, his was temporary.
* TheNeedless: And, unlike Pooh, he could resist eating during the coma motive.
* NightmareFetishist: Thought the washing machine and the Monomono Machine were fascinating torture devices and looked like fun to try.
* SweetTooth: As expected from the king of a candy holiday. He dumped a quarter of the sugar bowl into already sweet raspberry tea.

!![[Franchise/KingdomHearts Donald Duck]]
!!!Super High School Level Royal Magician

[[spoiler:Made it to the survivor pool.]]

* {{Angrish}}: He's known for ranting, but at the fourth trial, it degenerates into nonsensical stammers and screams with the occasional censored curse.
* InsultedAwake: Not a personal insult, but he spends much of the fourth trial depressed; he snaps to attention and whirls on the culprit upon the confession. [[spoiler:Nothing like betrayal and confessing to killing Donald's best friend in the school to get him to react.]]
* LaymansTerms: When he tries to explain death to Pooh.
* LovableCoward: When the curse motive made him see everyone as monsters, he noped out of the ballroom and hid.
* StunnedSilence: His only reaction to seeing [[spoiler:the destroyed portraits of his friends... and then the one of ''himself''.]]
* SuddenlyVoiced: As far as Maybeck's concerned, anyway, which led to both sides flailing.

!![[Franchise/KingdomHearts Sora]]
!!!Super High School Level Optimism

[[spoiler:The victim of Week 5 (Case 4).]]

* CaffeineBulletTime: Bounces off the walls during the coma motive when he and half the castle start substituting caffeine for food.
* CuriousAsAMonkey: Not as bad as Jack, but he spends most of his time investigating and trying things out... though it doesn't always work.
* DecoyProtagonist: He's the usual "hero" type, had an optimism-related title, and was often compared to R1's protag, Jimmy. [[spoiler:His death marked a major turning point that taught resolve and forgiveness to Naveen, who is currently getting the "real protagonist" votes.]]
* ForgottenFirstMeeting: Played with. Aside from Donald, everyone Sora's met in his travels doesn't remember him, because [[AlternateSelf they never did meet]].
* MenCantKeepHouse: He tried to help Howl with the laundry and made it worse.
* ThePollyanna: His SHSL title is "Optimism" and the others are grateful for the faith and positivity he radiates.
* ThePowerOfFriendship: Sora has faith that everyone can get out together from the start. Late in the game, some of the characters who had doubted it start to think that maybe they could have managed it if all of them had believed like he had.
* PowerOfTrust: When Pooh is framed [[spoiler:by the meat package at Iridessa's murder scene]], Sora stands by him even when the others are suspecting he did it.
* PunnyName: ''Sora Flyin''?
* TheUnintelligible: During the curse motive.
