A group of Ultimates that had been invited to become the 80th Class of Hope's Peak Academy, shortly before the Tragedy hit. During the Hope's Peak Killing Game, they were captured by Ultimate Despair and sent up into space for their own Killing Games.

    open/close all folders 

     Class 80-A
Credit to Hibuni. Top row: Akiko, Galaxialyn, Wei, Charles, Nico, Ichiro, Shuhei, Ringo. Bottom row: Raef, Shiori, Akiho, Hayate, Alice, Rei, Giselly, Hikaru

Students scouted and sent invitation letters to attend Hope's Peak as Class 80 shortly before the Tragedy struck. Captured by the Despairs at some point during the Hope's Peak Killing Game. This class ended up on Horizon Station. All of them have some degree on mental instability, and spent time in the station's sanitarium.

  • Dark and Troubled Past: All of them had this, which is why they were locked up in the sanitarium.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: Chronologically speaking, simulated versions of themselves appear in A New Hope's simulation arc.
  • Unwitting Test Subject: They were all experimented on by Jibo Momota, giving them new talents than what they had before.

Hayate Dorobo/Kisaki

Ultimate Thief

Heh it's a Thief's job to open doors. Let's see where this goes.

A young silver-haired thief who's successfully stolen (among other things) the Mona Lisa. He seems to have a good head on his shoulders.

He (or rather, his other half Mr. Psycho) is the culprit of the Third Trial. However, he manages to survive the execution and hide in the vents.

He escaped the station, survived the moon, and went on to have a child with Alice.

Alice Bailey

Ultimate Veterinarian/unofficially Ultimate Field Medic (also Ultimate Child Caretaker and Ultimate Luck)

Well it is sort of nerve wracking, but it's nice to know I'm not alone.

A short but well-endowed English girl with a fondness for animals and an unwillingness to take off the black glove on her right hand. Hangs out with Hayate, Shiori, and Akiko the most.

She escaped the station and the Moon Base, and goes on to open an orphanage and have a daughter with Hayate.

  • Big Brother Bully: Her older brother saw her as just a liability for not knowing how to fight. It's left her with some esteem issues.
  • Break the Cutie: Her past aside, someone tried to drown her the first night on the station. Then her Love Interest turned out to have a Serial Killer half that killed her brother, and then died in front of her.
  • Buxom Is Better: She's noted to be very curvaceous.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Used to be a doctor for Fenrir (even jokingly being called the Ultimate Field Medic), before her entire team (including her brother/only remaining family member) was slaughtered by a man she healed, who turned out to be a psychopathic serial killer. The experience left her unable to work as a doctor due to panicking at the sight of blood.
  • Earn Your Happy Ending: After everything thrown at her and her loved ones, she and they manage to escape from space and lead happy lives.
  • Friend to All Living Things: Fits this greatly, as shown with her care for animals and people.
  • Height Angst: Implied to be an insecurity she deals with as she regularly needs the help of step stools to do basic things like cook.
  • Heroic BSoD: Suffers this following Hayate's (apparent) execution. She manages to recover.
  • Laser-Guided Amnesia: Helped the mastermind give birth to Jun, and has no memory of this. Also already came to terms with Hayate/Mr. Psycho, and the fact that her brother was horrible, while in the sanitarium pre-killing game.
  • Morality Pet: For Mr. Psycho. And Jun, which is why Hiyoko really wants her dead.
  • Nice Girl: Is even understanding of the others reasoning for thinking she's the mole and locking her up.
  • Official Couple: Ends up with Hayate. By the end of Sea of Tranquility, they're engaged and expecting a child.
  • Their First Time: Apparently had sex (offscreen) with Hayate shortly before he (seemingly) died.
  • Trauma Conga Line: Her time in Final Horizon. She's nearly killed on her first night there, sees her Love Interest die (after he turns out to be the guy that traumatized her years ago), gets accused of being a spy and locked up in a sanitarium (which she fears) and looked on with suspicion even from a girl that has a crush on her, and nearly dies several more times along the way. And that's on top of the usual business of watching her friends die in a killing game.
  • Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: Is nervous around blood. And sanitariums.

Ringo Takagami

Ultimate Marksman/Hitman and Ultimate Trapmaker

You should be more careful girl. Asking people the wrong question can get you into a world of trouble.

An anti-social young man with exceptional skill with guns. He's determined to win the Killing Game his own way.

Is the victim of the fourth case, courtesy on a summoned monster clawing the effects of cyanide poisoning into his throat.

  • Asshole Victim: Galexialyn has no qualms about exchanging his life for Shiori's.
  • Expy: His general sociopathic tendencies, his willingness to play out the Killing Game, and how he sees everything as a way of honing his skills harken to Kazuo Kiriyama (specifically, the film version), except he can actually talk here. Not to mention his expertise with guns, which is what Kiriyama uses quite often.
  • Hate Sink: Generally unlikeable and despised throughout the story.
  • Jerkass: Consistently acts this way throughout the game.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: Kills Ichiro with his trap but gets Off on a Technicality, which is what happens to him. To specify, Galexialyn summons a monster who kills him, but since he didn't die at her hands, she gets off scot-free.
  • Mad Bomber: Sets several bombs up in the Birthday arc, apparently hoping to get everyone else killed so he could escape.
  • Off on a Technicality: How he gets away with setting up the first death. Also how his killer gets away with killing him.
  • One Degree of Separation: He worked for the Kuzuryu Clan in the past. It was he, not Ultimate Despair, that wiped the clan out when he decided to leave after the Tragedy hit. His only regret is not getting to kill Fuyuhiko and Natsumi, or testing himself against Peko in the process.
  • Recurring Element: He's the antagonistic character cast in the same mold as Byakuya, Nagito, and Kokichi, but lacks any of their redeeming qualities (doesn't get Character Development; doesn't operate on Blue-and-Orange Morality while still approaching some noble cause; and isn't ambiguous in their deeds).
  • The Sociopath: He doesn't have any Dark and Troubled Past to justify his actions, he just prefers practicing his skills on the living. Jibo Momota notes that he sees everything (working for and fighting against the Yakuza, the killing game) as just another way of honing his skills. Even before the Killing Game started, he wanted to test himself on a station full of Ultimates. Jibo was okay with this.
  • Token Evil Teammate: Serves as this for the story. He's even a bigger threat than the Mastermind at times.
  • Trap Master: Is good at making these. It's his second talent.
  • Would Hit a Girl: Had no problems with holding Shiori at gunpoint, threatening to kill her if it meant he could leave early. He only doesn't bother because he wants things to be interesting.
  • Would Hurt a Child: Has no qualms about holding Jun at gunpoint, intending to use him against the Mastermind. Said Mastermind's bat takes exception to this.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Has blue hair.

Shiori Ayashima

Ultimate Witch (and Ultimate Hope)

Magic. That is the only explanation.
No, you're wrong!

A cute-but-quiet young girl with an interest in magic. She becomes good friends with Alice, Hayate, and Galexialyn.

She escaped the station and moon, along with Mr. BonBon.

  • Animal Companion: Mr. BonBon the rabbit.
  • Break the Cutie:
    • Someone (other than Ringo, this time) poisoned her at her birthday party. Thankfully, she lives.
    • Nearly hits when she sees what's left of Akiko and Akiho. Xia is able to bring her back from that.
    • And then her best friend Xia got executed for a crime she didn't commit. That seemed to do it (briefly).
  • The Cutie: See this image.
  • Cute Witch: Fits this trope with her looks and personality (also see above).
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Even she has this: After her cat was killed by a boy that pretended to befriend her, she used black magic (which always comes at a high price) to get revenge. The end result; the boy died in a car crash, but her parents split up and her mentor died.
  • Despair Event Horizon: Crashes through it hard when Xia is killed. Alice manages to talk her out of it back to Hope Bringer status.
  • Maybe Magic, Maybe Mundane: So far it is only implied that she is the former (unlike Himiko). It later turns out that the actually can use real magic and she demonstrates it by growing a sunflower in her hand.
  • Nice Girl: Is very much this. It helps her befriend abrasive people like Galexialyn and even Rene from Class 80-B.
  • Only Friend: For Galexialyn. Upgraded to (apparently) Platonic Life-Partners after her birthday.
  • Shout-Out: Possibly. She mentions her only real friend as a child was a cat named Noir.

Galexialyn Chijimatsu

Ultimate Occultist (and Ultimate Alchemist)

People always ask for the truth, but rarely are they prepared for it.

A mysterious person with a gender that's difficult to discern. They have a creepy aura about them and no real knowledge about the concept of 'having friends'. Bonds a little with Shiori, though.

Is technically the culprit of the fourth trial, having used magic to save Shiori at the cost of Ringo's life. However, since she used a summoned beast to do the actual killing, she isn't executed.

She escaped the station, but ultimately (technically) died on the Moon.

  • Ambiguous Gender: though they offer people to call them Galex or Xialyn depending on what they recognize Galexialyn as. Though as Shiori finds out, due to the room numbers Galexialyn is a girl.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Has done something in the past that she considers worse than Sayaka's past actions. What hasn't been explained yet, but she's certain that Shiori and the others would break ties with her in a heartbeat if the truth came out. What that is gets revealed during the fourth trial: She leads a dark cult, Whispers of the Damned, that has been responsible for multiple deaths.
  • Feels No Pain: Is incapable of feeling pain, or much of anything at all, due to damaged nerve endings. In her search for a 'cure', she ended up forming a murderous cult.
  • Huge Schoolgirl: The only one taller than Nico.
  • Licking the Blade: With a sacrificial dagger. Can get away with it due to not feeling pain.

Shuhei Kisaki

Ultimate Scientist/Analyst

Shuhei Kisaki, Ultimate Scientist. I believe that's the only greeting that is necessary for the moment.

A tall young man with an interest in science (specifically Forensics). Is pre-Killing Game friends with Giselly and Miyaki (from Sea of Tranquility).

He escaped the station and the moon.

  • Atheist: Admits to not believing in higher powers or an afterlife.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Lost his sister years ago.
  • Deuteragonist: Becomes more like this as the story goes on.
  • Official Couple: Surprisingly ends up with Natalie over the course of his second game.
  • Secret Keeper: Knew Hayate was still alive (somehow). Also knew he could get Alice out of the Sanitarium room through the vent.
  • Social Darwinist: Averted Trope. He objects, when Ringo brings up the "Survival of the fittest"-concept. Jibo Momota calls him on his morals 'holding him back'.
  • What You Are in the Dark: Hiyoko makes him an offer to betray Alice in exchange for a chance to revive his sister. He refuses.

Giselly Lutzen

Ultimate Hacker (and Ultimate Stealth Operate)

Look I'm used to pissing people off, it's my charm

A Japanese/Filipino girl with a rather sour disposition. Knows Shuhei from before the Killing Game.

She was the mole, having been forced to try to kill Alice in exchange for the destruction of the Despair computer virus she was forced to make. Was the final (student) victim of the killing game.

  • Dark and Troubled Past: Was pushed and abused by her parents from an early age, apparently in a manner similar to Nagisa. It left her unwilling to be close to others.
  • Expy: Genius hacker affiliated with a rogue group and embroiled in a bigger conspiracy? Are we talking about Giselly or Sombra?
  • Inspector Javert: One of the most convinced that Alice is the mole. Because she was the mole trying to shift blame.
  • Love Confession: Seemed about ready to give one to Shuhei, but was interrupted. It was actually that she was the mole. Does have an actual confession prior to her execution, though.
  • The Quiet One: In the beginning, she doesn't introduce herself and Raef does it for her instead.

Hikaru Barloc

Ultimate Event Coordinator and (apparently) Ultimate Cook

If you need someone to juggle a thousand things at once, I'm your man!

A young man with great skill at organizing celebrations. Befriends Rei early on.

One of the victims of the third trial, after causing the fatal events in the first place.

  • An Arm And Aleg: Gets his arms torn off by Mr. Psycho.
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: Starts hallucinating Rei due to the third motive.
  • Companion Cube: His event planner. It's the last thing he has of his family (specifically his father) and he's very protective of it. He ultimately snaps when it goes missing (though the hallucinations of his dead Love Interest egging him on to violence didn't help).
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Nearly killed a mob boss in a blind rage once. Never told anyone that before Rei.
  • Ship Tease: With Rei. Right before she becomes a culprit.
  • Team Chef: Due to his other talent.

Rei Makoto

Ultimate Violinist

A beautiful violinist with a hidden dark side to her. She befriends Nico during the first day on the station.

Is the culprit of the second trial, having been coerced into killing by Raef (then killing him in turn).

Charles Stark

Ultimate Survivalist/Lifeguard

A heavily bearded teen who's good at survival. Gets along well with Nico.

One of the Third Trial victims.

Nico Bessho

Ultimate Guesser

I don't like the implications of just making random assumptions. Though the one thing I have trouble guessing is anything to do with politics.

A silver-haired girl with her own YouTube channel and an amazing ability for guessing developments, having once guessed the ending of a five-book series shortly after the first book was published. Would prefer to be known as an Educated Guesser. She quickly befriends Rei during the first few days on the station.

The first victim of the second case.

  • Blue Is Heroic: She mainly dresses in shades of blue and her guessing talent saves the group in case 1. She also doesn't falter when calling out Jibo Momota for his madness.
  • Expy: Person with a powerful talent that can be used to determine the culprits far easier? Dying in the second case of the game? Said death brought about by her trying to reach out to her killer? Are we talking about Nico or Kokoro Mitsume? Oddly though, there's also another Ultimate Psychologist.
  • Five-Second Foreshadowing: Guesses Hayate's name, their presence in the killing game and that Monokuma had weapons for each student this way.
  • The Fool: Defied Trope. She doesn't like to have her abilities to be associated with mere luck and aims to be the Ultimate Educated Guesser instead.
  • Huge Schoolgirl: With 15 years, she is among the youngest students, but is the second-tallest girl.
  • Killed Off for Real: As one of the victims of the Second Trial.
  • Loophole Abuse: Looks trough the rules for ways to do this early on.
  • Night Swim = Death: The last place Charles saw her before her Death was the pool area. And it was right before nighttime.
  • Ship Tease: With Charles.
  • Shout-Out: to NicoB and his infamous plot-guessing abilities (albeit Japanese and Gender Flipped).
  • Story-Breaker Power: Her guessing abilities are the reason the group found out that Aiko technically killed himself. She becomes one of the victims in chapter 11. In A New Hope, her simulation is even aware that she isn't real.
  • The Unreveal: what her extra talent was (clairvoyance, maybe?).

Akiho Tenryuu

Ultimate Psychologist (former Ultimate Basketball Player)

Sorry if I was rude before, not all parts of me agree.

An energetic girl with more personalities than there should be, she has a rather sporty look for someone with her talent. There's a reason or two for that.

Blown up shortly before the final day on the station.

  • Dark and Troubled Past: Her parents essentially sold her to Jibo Momota, who in turn gave her multiple personalities (at least one of which was a Despair) as an experiment in talent. Then he altered her memory so she thought she was in a car crash.
  • Inspector Javert: To Alice, as one of the people certain she's the mole. To the point of trying to kill her.
  • Jumping Off the Slippery Slope: Decides to kill Alice (the supposed mole) so as to at least know they wouldn't get away with everything.
  • Roaring Rampage of Revenge: Goes on a bit of one when Ringo starts trying to kill people. It comes to an abrupt end when she and the others find him already dead.
  • Ship Tease: With Wei.
  • Split Personality: Posseses an unknown amount of these. At least eight, though she doesn't know about the last one.

Wei Yan

Ultimate Kenpo Master (and Ultimate Counselor)

A perpetually shirtless man with long hair and self defense skills. Good friends with Akiho.

He escaped the station.

Akiko Williams

Ultimate Jeweler/Geologist

A Japanese/Welsh girl with a standoffish disposition. She befriends Alice over the course of the game.

Blown up shortly before the final day on the station.

  • Closet Key: Apparently first realized her feelings for Alice after giving her CPR.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Her mother died in a car crash. She blames herself for inadvertently distracting her mother from the road.
  • Tomboy: Self-described, with the short hair and visible muscles to match. Dips into Butch Lesbian territory a bit.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: Is on the receiving end of this from Shiori, over her refusal to believe that Alice might be innocent.

Raef Hyzaki

Ultimate Trickster

A mysterious individual with fox ears on their head. Befriends Hayate early on.

One of the victims of the Second Trial, after trying to manipulate the culprit into doing his bidding.

Ichiro Aiko (real name Jacob Johnstone)

Ultimate Football Star/Strong-Man

An American football player. Changed his name and left America after his father succumbed to cancer. Has anger issues and an unwillingness to surpass his father.

The first victim of the Horizon Station Killing Game.

     Class 80-B 

Students scouted and sent invitation letters to attend Hope's Peak as Class 80 shortly before the Tragedy struck. Captured by the Despairs at some point during the Hope's Peak Killing Game. This class ended up on Tranquility Base.

  • Early-Bird Cameo: Chronologically speaking, simulated versions of themselves appear in A New Hope's simulation arc.

Fukuya Onsuki (real name Jason Carter)

Ultimate Gymnast (actually Ultimate Strategist)

A clearly caucasian man with a Japanese name. There is a reason for that. Currently bunked with Evan.

He escaped the moon.

  • Covered with Scars: His body is covered in scars due to being on the receiving end of his training.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: His parents worked for the U.S. government and he helped on classified incidents as well. After a few years passed, his parents were killed by foreign assailants.
  • Heroic BSoD: Briefly when realizing Evan died . . . after he had slept with his killer impersonating him.
  • Pair the Spares: Implied with Juzo.
  • Secret Identity: Jason was believed to be in danger, so he got a new identity as Fukuya Onsuki, Ultimate Gymnast.
  • Straight Gay: Describes himself as such, and clearly appreciates Evan's arms.

Kakeru Lehrer

Ultimate Playwright

A Japanese/German playwright. Currently bunked with Dylan. Not actually the real culprit of trial 1.

He escaped the moon.

  • Ambiguously Evil: Turns out he was just a Red Herring.
  • Hidden Depths: Despite his asocial demeanor, he cares about Misuzu when she breaks down into tears when thinking of Ren's death, and calls out Zalicka for seemingly not caring.
  • No Social Skills: He admits to this and its why he buries himself in work.
  • Token Evil Teammate: Subverted. He’s not evil.
  • The Workaholic: Gets so caught up in writing his manuscripts that he sometimes gets no sleep.

Alex Alvarez

Ultimate DJ

A Belgian who has DJ'd with Sayaka and Ibuki in the past. Currently bunked with Tae Min.

He escaped the moon.

  • Alliterative Name: Alex Alvarez.
  • Breaking Old Trends: He's a musically-inclined Ultimate who survives the Killing Game.
  • Cloudcuckoolander's Minder: Begins following after Tae Min and trying to keep him under control, and making apologies to others on his behalf.
  • The Generic Guy: There's not much about him, other than being a DJ. He is fairly average, compared to the rest of the students.

Lee Kamao

Ultimate Kickboxer

Filipino/Korean. Flusters easily. Currently bunked with Anh.

He escaped the moon.

  • Birds of a Feather: He and Wei have been old friends before the Killing Games started.
  • Does Not Like Shoes: Goes barefoot the entire time, save for foot-wrappings..
  • Ship Tease: Gets a bit from Mallory, Natalie and Lia (mainly Mallory before she dies). Ultimately gets together with Lia.

Anh Nguyen

Ultimate Lute Player

Vietnamese. Currently bunked with Lee.

Is killed in the fifth case.

  • Bilingual Bonus: Says a few lines of (unsurprisingly) Vietnamese from time to time.
  • Ship Tease: With Zalicka. He at one point calls her 'beautiful' in Vietnamese. Sadly, he dies before they could do anything about it.

Ren Seishin

Ultimate Voice Actor

A Japanese boy who doesn't like to use his real voice. Currently bunked with Shohei.

Dies as a victim of the fourth case.

Shohei Maeda

Ultimate Pyrotechnician

Japanese. Currently bunked with Ren.

He was one of the two victims in the Second Trial, killed by strangulation.

  • Death by Irony: He was killed because he was on patrol trying to prevent a murder and stumbled onto one.
  • Flat Character: Wasn't as prominently covered as some of the other characters.
  • He Knows Too Much: Stumbled across Amare while she was killing Hikari. Dylan kept him from doing anything about it.
  • Properly Paranoid: He takes incredible precautions to protect himself and others. His caution is at time overzealous. And it still doesn't work.

Rene Musil

Ultimate Exterminator

An incredibly cynical Czech Republican with a severely suspicious disposition. Currently bunked with Mikhail.

Voted as the culprit of the First Trial. His knowledge that the Green House door was chained despite never seeing the door itself seemed to indicate it was the correct decision. Turns out it wasn't.

  • Famous Last Words:
  • Fatal Flaw: Rene's stubborn and impulsive nature is his biggest flaw. Not only does it make him unlikable to the others, but also causes his death, since he was too stubborn to explain his own alibi and went into a Villainous Breakdown instead, and he would've gotten a second chance had he been able to restrain himself.
  • Frame-Up: Why there wasn't evidence of the message he got about the chains.
  • I Never Said It Was Poison: He knew that the Green House door was chained despite never being there, so he was found suspicious and ultimately voted guilty.
  • Irony: Repeatedly mentioned how he thought Mallory would be the first to die. She outlasts him, and he dies in a trial where she was a major suspect (a fact he made a point to bring up repeatedly).
  • Self-Harm: A practitioner, as his scarred arms can attest.
  • Token Evil Teammate: Looks like he might become this. Sorta subverted when he dies early on, and apparently wasn't even evil (but was a jerk).
  • Villainous Breakdown: He doesn't take it well when the others suspect him as the murderer. Rather than trying to prove his innocence, he ends up looking even more suspicious by stubbornly refusing to own up, saying "don't you dare vote for me" and angrily insults Mallory and Zalicka by calling them "the damn air head" and "the snake bitch", respectively. Before Rene is executed, he yells that the others are all murderers for convicting him to death. Of course, it's hard to blame him, considering that he may have been an innocent person who couldn't handle the situation.

Natalie Sheldon

Ultimate Pilot

A foul-mouthed American/Canadian girl who always speaks her mind (and flirts with the guys). Currently bunked with Lia.

She escaped the moon.

  • Ship Tease: Hooks up, somewhat surprisingly, with Shuhei. They remain together after returning to Earth.
  • Tsundere: Despite her abrasive personality, and claiming to not be able to stand her, Natalie still shows genuine care for Mallory and lies to cover for Lee (who likes Mallory).

Lia Almeda

Ultimate Volcanologist

A bespectacled Portuguese girl with red hair. Currently bunked with Natalie.

She escaped the moon.

  • Dark and Troubled Past: Has some sort of secret that visibly upsets her when Monokuma threatens to reveal it.
  • I Am Not Pretty: Feels this way after comparing herself to some of the other girls in the hot spring. Lee is quick to offer a strong disagreement.
  • Ship Tease: Has some with Lee. They get together.

Zalicka Hajjar

Ultimate Snake Charmer

An Egyptian woman. Has two pet snakes named Seath (a black scaled cobra) and Veeza (a regular cobra). Currently bunked with Hikari.

She escaped the moon, as did Seath and Veeza.

  • Animal Companion: Her snakes serve as this for her. Even in someone else's body. She considers them her children.
  • Break the Haughty: Zalicka spends most of the game being cold and unfriendly, but begins to soften when Jason talks to her. She is broken even more when she finds out about Anh's death.
  • Loners Are Freaks: Mentions not having many friends given her talent. Did care about her roommate though.
  • Ship Tease: With Anh. She caught what he called her beautiful in Vietnamese.

Choko Shinsato

Ultimate Prosecutor

A Japanese girl with a bob haircut and a hand puppet. Currently bunked with Misuzu.

She escaped the moon.

  • Break the Cutie: She is extremely upset over the aftermath of the third trial.
  • Bunny-Ears Lawyer: An effective prosecutor. Still uses a toy for her job.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: When she was younger she was held at gunpoint in a courtroom by a man. Her father was killed in the ensuing chaos by Choko accidentally firing the gun. Her mother killed the man who took her hostage and covered up Choko's involvement.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: Her feelings while confessing to Misuzu that it was her that killed her father.
  • Shout-Out: Her Dark and Troubled Past has similar elements to Miles Edgeworth's. Except unlike with Miles, Choko is (apparently) the one who killed her dad, not a serial killer, while Miles only thought he did but there was a different killer the whole time.
  • Sidekick: Tae Min later makes her his sidekick after she sees his face.
  • Unwitting Instigator of Doom: Is the one who gave Dylan the scoutbook that let him be able to frame Galexialyn.

Misuzu Shiina

Ultimate Mortician

Well, you should never judge people for their appearance, for our body is nothing but a temporary shell!

A Japanese girl with a rather pleasant disposition. Currently bunked with Choko.

She escaped the moon.

  • Be Yourself: A supporter of this, as her talks with Ren show.
  • Genki Girl: Has shades of this with her energetic attitude.
  • Gratuitous Latin: Has a moment during the first night.
    Memento Mori. It's a Latin saying that means remember that you will die, cool right? But if I had to add my own personal touch to it, I'd tell you ne obliviscaris ridere. It means don't forget to smile.
  • Idiot Hair: A halo-shaped one to add to her angel motif.
  • Nice Girl: Is a genuinely nice young lady with an optimistic bend to life.
  • Only Friend: Seems to be this to Kakeru. They start a relationship by the end.
  • Sticky Fingers: Likes to "collect" things. She managed to steal Tae Min's bunny helmet for some roleplaying and has also once stolen Strawbear from her friend Choko.
  • Symbolic Wings: Wears a white backpack with angel wings, which compliments her bright, optimistic personality.
  • Verbal Tic: Often begins her sentences with "My my".

Mallory Walsh

Ultimate Gardener

A narcoleptic Irish girl who loves to hug. Was homeschooled. Currently bunked with Miyaki.

A victim of the third trial.

A blue-attired girl and friend of a couple of Horizon Station occupants, as well as Shuhei from Class 80-A. Currently bunked with Mallory.

He escaped the moon.

Sierra White

Ultimate Prodigy New Ultimate Phantom Thief

A black-haired American/Japanese girl who isn't talented in any one specific thing, but is good at learning things fast. The youngest girl in the cast at 14 (she skipped a grade or two). Currently bunked with Mirielle (who keeps flirting her in her Lupin persona).

She escaped the moon, and disappears as the latest Ultimate Phantom Thief.

  • Brainy Brunette: Is actually quite smart, as shown by observations she makes following the first trial, including figuring out who the culprit was in the second trial. Not that she thinks much of it.
  • Cowardly Lion: Is rather timid and shy, but still soldiers on in the face of adversity. Zalicka even comments on it during the second investigation, when she personally checks if it's possible to climb out of the second story window onto a dumpster (it is).
  • Luminescent Blush: Gets this a lot around Mirielle/Lupin (mainly when being hit on). And when getting complimented in general.
  • Nice Girl: Is a genrerally nice young girl.
  • Passing the Torch: After Mirielle's death, she is made Arsene Lupin the 8th.
  • Relationship Upgrade: Gets with Mirielle shortly before the body switching. It doesn't last.
  • Schoolgirl Lesbian: Is gay, something her family wouldn't approve of (not that they care about her much anyway). And they probably don't exist anyway.
  • Who Wears Short Shorts?: Has a red pair for sleeping in.

Mirielle DuMonde

Ultimate Phantom Thief

A French girl with a nervous disposition. She has a more extroverted (and flirtatious) persona of Arsene Lupin the 7th. Currently bunked with Sierra (whom Lupin keeps flirting with; no word on Mirielle's thoughts on the matter).

Is stabbed to death in the fifth case.

Evan Drakon

Ultimate Mythologist

A muscly Greek with an interest in mythology. Currently bunked with Fukuya/Jason.

Died in Dylan's body in the fourth case, having been brainwashed to kill Ren in his own body in a Mutual Kill.

  • Dark and Troubled Past: His mother died in childbirth and was raised by his older brother, sister and grandmother. His father was an assassin and he wanted his children to follow in footsteps. But when Evan's siblings didn't fulfill their father's expectations, they were killed by him. Evan's initiation (at 11 years old) was to kill a family without hesitation. His father threatened to kill his grandmother, in order to make him colder, so Evan could do what needed to be done. Evan instead killed his father in a cold rage.
  • Only Friend: Seems to be becoming one for Hikari (with some Ship Tease). Then that ship sunk when Hikari dies.
  • Trauma Conga Line: Had a horrible childhood, got stuck in a killing game, saw his Love Interest killed, had the memorial he set up for the fallen desecrated (with the nicest girl in the group killed in the middle of it), gets stuck in another (much weaker compared to his own) body while his own body dies (twice, actually), and then discovers that he's not even a natural human, but an artificial one created by a Mad Scientist with a fake talent and made up backstory (including the aforementioned childhood) who probably hasn't existed before the killing game started. Finally capping it off, the following day he becomes a murder victim (which, at the least, finally put him out of further misery).
    • Actually, he died in Dylan's body, and missed the 'his life was a lie' reveal. Dylan did probably accurately portray how he would've reacted though.

Hikari Kurohashi

Ultimate Medium

A Japanese albino. Can sometimes channel the dead. Currently bunked with Zalicka.

She was one of the two victims in the Second Trial, killed by strangulation.

  • Blessed with Suck: Can only feel/channel the dead's emotions, not any messages they might convey. Unfortunately not helpful in determining killers. Also leaves her feeling isolated from her peers.
  • Ship Tease: With Evan whom she kisses on the cheek at one point. And then Ship Sinking.

Mikhail Mischak

Ultimate Taoist

A Ukrainian man. Currently bunked with Rene.

One of the two victims of the First Trial.

Dylan Rufheiser

Ultimate Diplomat/Ultimate Psychopath

A guy from Cuba. The youngest boy in the group at 14. Currently bunked with Kakeru. The actual culprit of the third and first trials, and had a hand in the second.

Fakes his death and impersonates Evan in Ren's body following the fourth case, then kills and is killed in the fifth case.

  • Anything That Moves: He's pansexual.
  • Ax-Crazy: His true personality.
  • Bunny-Ears Lawyer: Dresses rather casually for a diplomat. Apparently, it helps him interact with others back home.
  • Contrasting Sequel Antagonist: Whereas Ringo merely served as a lone wolf not in league with the Mastermind, Dylan is the attack dog of the mastermind.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Willingly used his position to spy on other countries. Most likely not true and his true memories are much darker.
  • Devil in Plain Sight: He's good at acting like an innocent by putting on his Mask of Sanity, giving him plenty of opportunities to spill blood.
  • The Dragon: Serves as this (or at least a semi-loyal attack dog) to Yukiko.
  • Expy: He's a young Ultimate with a slightly passive talent who has a secret hitch for murdering people and being a sadistic psychopath, while also hindering the heroes' chances of survival. He's eerily similar to Kanade Otonokoji.
  • Hard Head: Dylan got hit with an oar by the second killer and was knocked unconscious.
  • Hate Sink: When his true colors are revealed, he is loathed and feared by the others.
  • It Amused Me: Why he killed Mallory when she found him wrecking the memorial (that part was just due to his own atheist views). He even expresses to Monokuma that killing others turns him on.
  • Kids Are Cruel: Dylan is the youngest boy at 14, and eventually turns out to be a sadistic psychopath.
  • Killed Off for Real: Finally dies when his boss stabs him in the back (well, the eye) in the fifth case.
  • Mask of Sanity: With which he fooled everyone.
  • Red and Black and Evil All Over: He has a black and red color scheme with his hair and clothes. Going by his true personality, it fits really well.
  • Sadist: Gets enjoyment out of destroying the shrine and killing the other students.
  • Token Evil Teammate: The actual one, as a high-functioning psychopath.

Yukiko Fukunaga

Ultimate Chess Player

Pleasure to meet all of you, these are certainly strange circumstances. However I believe we can make the most it, if we remain diligent.

A Japanese girl and expert chess player. Currently bunked with Amare.

See her section in the Ultimate Despair folder for more.


Sayaka Maizono

Ultimate Pop Idol

I was already in one of these sick games, I thought it was all over for me.

After being killed in the Hope's Peak Killing Game, Sayaka was somehow revived (leading to her ghost disappearing from Makoto). She was found frozen by the students of Class 80-A during the third day of the Horizon Station Killing Game and awoken, joining the game herself.

She's tragically killed off again, killed by a bomb implanted in her neck by the Mastermind.

The Horizon Station Mastermind

Ultimate Traditional Japanese Dancer

The one controlling Monokuma in the killing game. All that's currently known is they're a young (probably blonde) woman a couple of years older than Class 80 who considers Junko a 'big sis'. Is the real Hiyoko Saionji, still an agent of Despair, and a Hate Sink besides.

Is killed by being sucked out the airlock without a spacesuit shortly before the meteor comes.

Mr. Psycho

Ultimate Anti-Hero

Told you I'd come back

A vicious serial killer capable of killing large crowds of people singlehandedly. He was mentioned in passing in the main story. He seems set to have a larger role in Final Horizon, and may even be one of the students on the station.

Real identity: Hayate Dorobo's Split Personality.


How well does it match the trope?
