Super High School Level Radiance

"But if we're going to make sure that doesn't happen again...well, we'll have to stay unified, won't we?"

The victim of Week 3 (Case 2).

  • Alternate Self: Due to the rules of gimmick rounds being non-canonical to the main game, this Anna isn't the same as Round 2's SHSL Little Sister (despite being played by the same mun). She has the same new last name, but a different SHSL title.
  • Cute Clumsy Girl: 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.
  • Cute Mute: When she's invisible and inaudible, she keeps up her spirits, writing everyone cheerful notes and trying to be helpful. It's adorable.
  • Foolish Sibling, Responsible Sibling: 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.
  • Interface Screw: When she became invisible, she lost her default icon designation and started replying to things with no icons.
  • Invisible Main Character: During the curse motive, she's rendered invisible and inaudible, just when her sister forgets she ever existed.
  • I Will Wait for You: 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. Helps that she dies reading the last book.


Super High School Level Collector

"I like names more than I like titles. They're more important."

Made it to the survivor pool.

  • Alien Among Us: Trying to pass herself off as human while tripping over her own legs, marvelling at food, and mixing up animals.
  • Collector of the Strange: 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.
  • Covert Pervert: She really appreciated the first "everybody strip" of the round...
  • Cry Laughing: At the first murderer's confession. She was very worn out.
  • Declaration of Protection: Promises to keep Naveen safe as Perry goes to his death.
    • Mirrors the one that Naveen gives her, after she turns him human again.
  • Fee Fi Faux Pas: As prone to these as ever. Ice cream isn't finger food.
  • Gosh Darn It to Heck!: Almost verbatim, too!
  • Guess Who I'm Marrying?: Well, it sure looked that horrible to Dad when they got home...
  • I'm a Humanitarian: 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.
  • Kleptomaniac Hero: 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.
  • Manic Pixie Dream Girl: 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.
  • Mr. Vice Guy: Ariel, as in canon, is defined by her curiosity and silly assumptions but also very much by her selfishness and short-sightedness.
  • Sweet Tooth: Discovering human food will do that to you. She ate jam straight from the jar!
  • That Was Not a Dream: Her reaction on the second day of murder school.
  • Threat Backfire: Monobear would probably have freaked her out more if she actually knew what "saute" meant.
  • Trash of the Titans: Ariel made a complete mess of her room in under an hour, and this was before she started hoarding stuff.

Howl Jenkins

Super High School Level Heartbreaker

"I never liked sad goodbyes."

The culprit of Week 2 (Case 1).

  • ...But He Sounds Handsome: One of the first indications that he's actually the first culprit is when he gets indignant at the suggestion that this person wasn't very bright.
  • Kill It with Fire: He wants this done with the portrait of him in the foyer, which just isn't pretty enough. Ironically, it's also his execution method.
  • Narcissist: Even Monobear refers to him as a "pretty boy".
  • Power Dyes Your Hair: It wears off after the curse, bringing back his black hair.
  • Too Incompetent to Operate a Blanket: Have you seen the man try to wash his clothes?
  • Tragic Monster: 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. He confesses this to Elsa, leaving her to know the truth while everyone else thinks he killed out of petty selfishness.
  • Vain Sorceress: 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.

Bill Cipher

Super High School Level ??? 

"Hate to break it to ya, but in the grand scheme of things, your lives are pretty small on the 'actually important to anyone' scale."

The culprit of Week 3 (Case 2).

  • Because You Were Nice to Me: He's still evil, sadistic, and very much messed-up, but 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 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".
  • Black Speech: His title is written out in "grimdark text", making it both ominous and illegible.
  • Boring Insult: 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?".
  • Hate Sink: In and out of character, though the players and audience largely find him a Love to Hate type. He's been described as inspiring "Komaeda-level hate" from the first trial.
  • Humanity Ensues: He loves it! So many new opportunities.
  • I Have You Now, My Pretty: Kissing Naveen, 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.
  • My Friends... and Zoidberg: When discussing the dead students, the survivors usually talk about "(their) friends... and Bill" or say they miss everyone but Bill.
  • The Nicknamer: 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.)
  • No Sense of Personal Space: Bill really likes creeping people out.
  • Not Me This Time: 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.
  • Not So Invincible After All: 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.
  • Will Not Tell a Lie: 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 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.


Super High School Level Recluse

"I thought I could trust them. I wanted to look up to them..."

The victim of Week 4 (Case 3).

  • Broken Pedestal: She really looked up to her fellow magic users, especially for their pride and openness about their powers. Howl killing Iridessa to escape his curse absolutely shook her.
  • Emotionless Girl: Becomes muted and closed-off after Anna dies and Elsa blames herself for it.
  • First-Name Basis: Elsa starts insisting on this with Naveen after the first trial, making up for not having had friends in the past.
  • "Flowers for Algernon" Syndrome: 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.
  • Foolish Sibling, Responsible Sibling: On paper, she's the responsible one, and she tries to be that, but she depends just as much on Anna if not more.
  • Heroic BSoD: Went completely blank and unresponsive when Anna was killed. She was dragged into the trial this way.
  • Promoted to Playable: Her main-timeline Alternate Self debuted in an epilogue cameo. Here, she's a student.
  • Survivor Guilt: 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 Anna herself before her death.
  • Token Lesbian: DRRP may have some straight people in it too, but the Ho Yay 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.
  • Trauma Button: She's a cluster of these thanks to her frankly awful childhood of isolation, and they keep getting pushed.
  • Trauma Conga Line: Pretty much the whole game, especially Case 2.


Super High School Level Playboy

"It has been... it has been a very long road."

Made it to the survivor pool.

  • Actually Pretty Funny: His reaction when he sees what Gaston and friends drew on his face.
  • Air Guitar: Ariel catches him playing the air ukulele.
  • Baleful Polymorph: Came into the game as a frog.
  • Broken Smile: Normally a smiling guy to begin with, but his smile breaks (with a side of Broken Tears) while scrambling for some way to save Perry.
  • Chivalrous Pervert: 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.
  • Distressed Dude: After the outcome of the second trial is revealed, just about everyone jumps at the chance to come to Naveen's aid when the culprit kisses Naveen by surprise. Somewhat subverted by the fact that Naveen throws the first punch.
    • Happened again when he fell into a coma.
  • First-Name Basis: Upgrades to this with Elsa (who insists on it early) and Ariel (when he proposes to her).
  • Here We Go Again!: The curse motive turned him back into a frog.
  • Innocence Lost: 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 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.
  • Ironic Echo: 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.
  • Lethal Chef: 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.)
  • Naked People Are Funny: Well, when he turned back into a human, he didn't have any (non-nerfed) all-powerful mages to give him some clothes...
  • Not So Different: 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. 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.
  • The Proud Elite: 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.
  • Rage Breaking Point: Lashes out at Pooh for trying to "fix" a victim with needle and thread.
  • Sheltered Aristocrat: 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?
  • Speaks Fluent Animal: As a side-effect of being a frog.
  • Straight Man and Wise Guy: The fun-loving one to Perry's stoic.
  • Supporting Protagonist: Originally seemed to be shaping up as the Roxy/Sycamore figure of the team, but developed into the Jimmy/Beat.


Super High School Level Light

"This is bad, this is bad..."

The victim of Week 2 (Case 1).

  • Ironic Name: The last name assigned to her is O'Rinn — "of ravens". As a six-inch fairy, she's afraid of predator animals.
  • Light 'em Up: Her control over light proves useful in investigating the secrets hidden on the main floor.
  • Meat Versus Veggies: 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 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 Straw Vegetarian about it, viewing meat-eating as just a kinda gross human thing.
  • Mouse World: How she has to function in a castle of humans, Scavenged Punk and all (though, as a light fairy instead of a tinker, she's not doing so well on that front).
  • Nervous Wreck: She can get this way when something goes wrong. Anna and Ariel have both compared her to Elsa.
  • Prophetic Name: Remember the raven thing above? Guess what kills her?

Terrence "Donnie" Maybeck

Super High School Level Perspective

"It doesn't matter how it starts, the end result is the same: you don't wake up."

Made it to the survivor pool.

  • Big "NO!": When Pooh sneaks past him to get at the honey while Maybeck's guarding the kitchen during the Snow White's Sleep motive.
  • "Fawlty Towers" Plot: With different lies told to different characters, having to Maintain the Lie 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 Pull the Thread thinking he was covering up something else.
  • Insomnia Episode: 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.
  • Ironic Echo: "What's the cost?" The answer, he muses, is sacrificing people for this horrible game.
  • Meta Guy: Comes with recognizing everyone from fiction.
  • Narrative Profanity Filter: "The swear is 20% expletive and 80% wishing Howl would . . . Something about Sleeping Beauty? Who knows."
  • Outdated Outfit: His blue pinstripe Dapper Dan suit, which looks absolutely dorky on him.
  • Posthumous Character: Not Maybeck himself, but a lot of his internal monologue routes back to wondering what Uncle Walt would think or do.
  • Sir Swears-a-Lot: Especially considering almost no one else does at all.
  • Snakes Are Sinister: At least he's not a fan.
  • Unknown Rival: Maleficent is his Arch-Enemy and he's incensed that she's apparently Back from the Dead again... but she's a different iteration who has no idea who he is.

Winnie the Pooh

Super High School Level Honey Hunter

"I've always been a bear of very little brain. But perhaps if we put all our little brains together, they will make a bigger brain."

Made it to the survivor pool.

  • Beary Friendly: Providing a direct contrast to Monobear.
  • Big Eater: And he doesn't even need to eat, except in the curse motive.
  • Gentle Giant: During the week where he was cursed to be a full-sized grizzly bear.
  • The Heart: Has become this to the remaining class, replacing Naveen after he started growing the ahoge.
  • Innocence Lost: Starting from the very first trial, this really kicks in when Donald finally explicitly explains what it means when people stop moving. By the end of the fourth trial, he ends up saying "I hate you" to Monobear.
  • Kindhearted Simpleton: He may be a bear of very little brain, but he's also a bear of very large heart.
  • Luke, You Are My Father: Assumed that Monobear was secretly related to him. Monobear rebuked this.
  • Meat-O-Vision: When everyone had to avoid eating, he started seeing everything as honey.
  • Morality Pet: Seems to have become this to Gaston of all people.
  • The Needless: 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.
  • Never Learned to Read: At least not very long words.
  • Never Say "Die": "Murderer" not being part of his vocabulary, Pooh has adopted various euphemisms for each culprit: head-taker-offer, burner-upper, hot-chocolate-maker, and head-hitter.
  • Seemingly Profound Fool: 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.
  • Speaks Fluent Animal: He can understand Perry's speech.

Perry the Platypus

Super High School Level Secret Agent

"As much as I wish it weren't true, it's really impossible to have a war with zero casualties. But if we do it correctly, we can stop Monobear from ever doing this again."

The culprit of Week 5 (Case 4).

  • Daytime Drama Queen: Averted. He's mentioned to like soap operas, but he's hardly lost control of his life and he's one of the most competent characters.
  • Dying Clue: He leaves Naveen a clue in his hat pointing to where his last letters are hidden.
  • Fate Worse than Death: 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 he realizes that he can't live with himself for killing an innocent child.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Even on a meta level. 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.
  • Mix-and-Match Critters: Some of his classmates assume he's a "beaver-duck."
  • My Greatest Failure: Accidentally killing Sora.
  • Occam's Razor: Taught this to Naveen to help him with cases. In the end, it's how Naveen outs Perry as a culprit.
  • Only Sane Man: He constantly finds himself giving explanations to and talking sense into all these people from the past and supernatural creatures.
  • Straight Man and Wise Guy: The serious one to Naveen's slacker.
  • Team Dad: 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. It's fitting how he ends up dying in Disney Ronpa that same week.
  • This Is Unforgivable!: Declares this after seeing the state of the second victim.
  • Wrong Genre Savvy: Perhaps appropriately, he seems to think he's in a spy movie and suspects Monobear to be a Rogue Agent.
    "This wasn't some kind of fairy tale, after all."


Super High School Level Huntsman

"Come down here and fight, you coward!"

Made it to the survivor pool.

  • The Beastmaster: Styles himself as this when he gets to ride a grizzly bear (a transformed Pooh, but details).
  • Big Eater: Raided the fridge to eat almost all the eggs by himself in one go. What did you expect?
  • Butt-Monkey: Already shaping up to be one.
  • The Dung Ages: Before Naveen forced him into the tub, it had been months since his last bath. Historical accuracy!
  • Egomaniac Hunter: Even without anything to actually hunt.
  • Face Doodling: Draws silly and occasionally obscene things on Naveen's face. Hey, when your classmate's unconscious for a week...
  • Heartbreak and Ice Cream: When the curse motive made him weak and noodly, he fell into a despair of ice cream and beer.
  • Manly Tears: At Naveen's Disney Death, despite having caused it.
  • Never Learned to Read: Barely, anyway. Historical accuracy!
  • Overshadowed by Awesome: It's joked OOCly that he views the plot of his canon this way now.
    "Who cares about Belle? I got to ride a bear!"
  • Raw Eggs Make You Stronger: Believes this and tells the others as much when he eats a ton at a time. Pooh takes it as gospel truth.
  • Stay in the Kitchen: 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.
  • Testosterone Poisoning: 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.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: Has been gradually doing this over the course of his stay in the Tragic Kingdom. Still a Jerkass though.
  • Villain with Good Publicity: For those who haven't gotten the chance to see the whole misogyny thing.


Super High School Level Fairy Godmother

"I've never been one to play by the rules."

The culprit of Week 4 (Case 3).

  • Adaptation Personality Change: Sora, Donald, and especially Maybeck have trouble dealing with a Maleficent who might actually be kind of a decent person. Maybeck ends up cursing the writing staff of Maleficent for daring to make someone who's caused them so much trouble sympathetic.
  • The Cynic: Flatly tells Bill that true love doesn't exist. She also doesn't believe from the start that they'll all get out fine.
  • Deadpan Snarker: How she chooses to deal with all of this nonsense.
  • The Fair Folk: Weaknesses to iron and flame, Chaotic Neutral mentality, wry and mysterious disposition, the works.
  • Incredible Shrinking Man: In the curse motive.
  • Morality Pet: She grows some kindness for Iridessa (her fellow fairy), Pooh (too innocent not to), and Elsa (after seeing all the pain she's gone through).
  • Pet the Dog: 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 Heroic BSoD.
  • Set Right What Once Went Wrong: She was brought in after she started to regret cursing Aurora and was desperate to find a way to save her. This regret led her to try to Mercy Kill Elsa to get herself a free change-the-past ticket like Jay's in Round 2.

Jack Skellington

Super High School Level Scream Cultivator

"I'm terribly sorry for frightening you."

Made it to the survivor pool.

  • Bad is Good and Good is Bad: Compliments the washing machine by calling it horrible.
  • Conditioned to Accept Horror: Much like Cecil before him, he weirds the other students out by waxing nostalgic about screaming candy and living toys that steal body parts.
  • Curious as a Monkey: Yes, let's stick our head in the washing machine to figure out what it does, shall we.
  • Humanity Ensues: Unlike Bill's, his was temporary.
  • The Needless: And, unlike Pooh, he could resist eating during the coma motive.
  • Nightmare Fetishist: Thought the washing machine and the Monomono Machine were fascinating torture devices and looked like fun to try.
  • Sweet Tooth: As expected from the king of a candy holiday. He dumped a quarter of the sugar bowl into already sweet raspberry tea.

Donald Duck

Super High School Level Royal Magician


Made it to the survivor pool.

  • Alliterative Name: Seems to be a thing for him and his friends.
  • Angrish: He's known for ranting, but at the fourth trial, it degenerates into nonsensical stammers and screams with the occasional censored curse.
  • Insulted Awake: 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. Nothing like betrayal and confessing to killing Donald's best friend in the school to get him to react.
  • Layman's Terms: When he tries to explain death to Pooh.
  • Lovable Coward: When the curse motive made him see everyone as monsters, he noped out of the ballroom and hid.
  • Never the Selves Shall Meet: It's mentioned in description text that it may not be a good idea for Multiverse Donald to show up while this one's still there.
  • Stunned Silence: His only reaction to seeing the destroyed portraits of his friends... and then the one of himself.
  • Suddenly Voiced: As far as Maybeck's concerned, anyway, which led to both sides flailing.


Super High School Level Optimism

"Everyone wants to go home, right? And the best way to do that is to work together!"

The victim of Week 5 (Case 4).

  • Break the Cutie: In the afterlife community, when he finally faces the fact that he's dead and they don't know if they'll ever come back.
  • Caffeine Bullet Time: Bounces off the walls during the coma motive when he and half the castle start substituting caffeine for food.
  • Curious as a Monkey: Not as bad as Jack, but he spends most of his time investigating and trying things out... though it doesn't always work.
  • Decoy Protagonist: He's the usual "hero" type, had an optimism-related title, and was often compared to R1's protag, Jimmy. His death marked a major turning point that taught resolve and forgiveness to Naveen, who is currently getting the "real protagonist" votes.
  • Forgotten First Meeting: Played with. Aside from Donald, everyone Sora's met in his travels doesn't remember him, because they never did meet.
  • Men Can't Keep House: He tried to help Howl with the laundry and made it worse.
  • The Pollyanna: His SHSL title is "Optimism" and the others are grateful for the faith and positivity he radiates.
  • The Power of Friendship: 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.
  • Power of Trust: When Pooh is framed by the meat package at Iridessa's murder scene, Sora stands by him even when the others are suspecting he did it.
  • Punny Name: Sora Flyin?
  • The Unintelligible: During the curse motive.

    Disney Ronpa NPCs 
This section contains endgame spoilers.

Lord Monobear

"It's true when they say people crack under pressure, you know!"

For tropes common to all Monobears, see Dangan Roleplay Canon Rounds.

Mickey Mouse

"I wouldn't ask you to risk yourselves for me."

The true owner of the castle, who's been imprisoned underneath it and taunted with updates on what's been happening above.

  • Angsty Surviving Twin: Well, surviving younger sibling.
  • Composite Character: Not of separate characters, but of many different versions of himself. 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.
  • False Innocence Trick: Some of the characters (and exceptionally wary muns) thought his introduction as the prisoner in the dungeon was this. No, he really was just a perfectly nice person who was trapped and needed help.
  • Fisher King: The students' victory changes the castle back to normal, representing Mickey being in charge again.
  • My Greatest Failure: He studied magic for years, but was never able to resurrect the dead, which he regretfully tells Pooh. It's implied that he tried with Oswald.
  • Rightful King Returns: He's been imprisoned in his own castle and, once he's rescued, his goal is to take back what Monobear stole.
  • Sheep in Sheep's Clothing: Suspected to be an imposter pulling a False Innocence Trick at first, but no, he really is a Nice Guy and the victim here.
  • Transformation Trinket: His Sorcerer's Hat gives him a Transformation Sequence along with being an Artifact of Power.
  • Walking Spoiler: Though this character's involvement in the plot is foreshadowed very early on, his role and identity are still very much an endgame spoiler.
  • What's Up, King Dude?: Usually very accessible to his people and even insists on familiar terms with the party.

Oswald the Lucky Rabbit

"T-thank you for not givin' up on me."

Mickey's lost brother, tragically forgotten after Mintz took the rights.

  • Aloof Big Brother: At one point, but now he just misses his brother.
  • Gods Need Prayer Badly: 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.
  • Posthumous Character: Mickey describes Oswald's being forgotten by saying he was sick and got weaker until he faded away.

Minnie Mouse

"It couldn't hurt to try."

The queen in exile, who escaped when Monobear appeared but eventually turned back and tried to break into the castle.

    Smash Ronpa Characters 

Luigi Mario

Super High School Level Second Banana

"And even I know now that Monobear is doing this to make us distrust each other, and while I'll-a never hate and always understand any culprit here, I will never kill anyone as long as I live here!"

Made it to the survivor pool.

  • Character Development: He's gone from cowardly to much stronger than he thought he was.
  • Comically Missing the Point: When Crazy Hand shows off his power by turning podiums into balance balls, Luigi asks, "You know about Mario Parties too?"
  • Cowardly Lion: His character arc.
  • Face Your Fears: His entire character arc is about facing fears like losing a loved one, being helpless, approaching people who rejected him, refuting things they unfairly blame him for, and his prerequisite fear of ghosts.
  • Heroic BSoD: He thought Mario was coming to save them... until he saw the hostage motive and shut down for the rest of the week.
  • Second Banana: His title even makes fun of him for it.

Betrayus Spheros

Super High School Level Pac-Pong Player

The culprit of Week 3 (Case 2).


Super High School Level Squidol

"Nothing is a waste of time if you're passionate about it!"

The victim of Week 3 (Case 2).


Super High School Level Witch-in-Training

The victim of Week 4 (Case 3).

"I have eyes. All you're doing is pointing out obvious things."

  • Collector of the Strange: In keeping with their Ship Tease, she collects Dark Pit's feathers when he's been moulting all over the place.
  • Creepy Child: Due to her snarky, disparaging demeanour as much as to her occupation.]]
  • Cynicism Catalyst: She's rude and snarky to begin with, but after Dark Pit dies, she becomes more outspokenly hateful, especially blaming Luigi for chickening out of killing someone the same night because she'd rather he have been executed instead.
  • Girls Love Stuffed Animals: Carries around a plush bunny, marking the contrast between her apparent cuteness and sour personality.
  • Giving Someone the Pointer Finger: When she first sees Dark Pit and he tells her to stop staring, she points instead to annoy him even more.
  • Little Miss Snarker: A cute little girl who takes pleasure in insulting everyone.
  • The Resenter: To Luigi after he backs out of a murder attempt the same night that Dark Pit kills. She believes that, had Luigi killed Little Mac that night, her boyfriend wouldn't have acted and would still be alive. They eventually reconcile when the dead are restored to life.
  • Tiny Tyrannical Girl: Despite being a small kid, she expects everyone to defer to her.


Super High School Level Dragon Tamer

"Don't try to change the subject!"

Purposefully misvotes for herself in Week 4 (Case 3).

  • Despair Event Horizon: "You all still have hope. I don't."
  • Driven to Suicide: Votes for herself rather than deal with another week of Monobear's games.
  • Icy Blue Eyes: Indicative of her personality, even if ice is her elemental weakness.
  • I Work Alone: Tells the others this, following up by saying that they should feel honoured that she made an exception for them.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Tends to be arrogant, but she's generally friendly to the people she trusts.
  • Small Name, Big Ego: She thinks she's pretty great, but no one here has even heard of her gym.
  • Tsundere: Particularly towards Yomiel.

Dark Pit

Super High School Level Recolour

"Not that I care about some random world I'll never see, but it's a matter of principle."

The culprit of Week 2 (Case 1).


Super High School Level Spoiler

"It's all about steps, that's all. Getting things where they need to go."

The culprit of Week 4 (Case 3).

  • Anime Hair: Ashley calls him "Johnny Bravo".
  • Back from the Dead: He wakes up in the camp and starts freaking out that he's alive.
  • Crowbar Combatant: Considers this if he can't find another self-defence alternative in the opening log.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: One he desperately didn't want getting out.
  • Death Seeker: By the time he's revealed to be Ashley's murderer, he doesn't care about being punished anymore.
  • History Repeats: He laments yet another woman he cares about dying because of his decisions.
  • Walking Spoiler: His title is this because his role, appearance, and very existence are this for his canon.

Wii Fit Trainer

Super High School Level Fitness

"Hello there! Ready to work out today?"

Made it to the survivor pool.

  • Ambiguously Human: It's not clear what she is and many campers assume she's a robot. She later claims to be a Mii.
  • Character Exaggeration: In canon, the Trainer is essentially a flat avatar. But when real world values such as food or social skills are taken into account...
  • Cloudcuckoolander: Her inability to comprehend most things outside of fitness leads to an unusual train of thought.
  • Companion Cube: During the hostage motive, hers was... the Wii Balance Board.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Eventually learns how to sass the likes of Monobear, Clarice, the Hands, and Ganondorf.
  • Everyone Calls Him "Barkeep": Averted, as she ends up taking on the name the ESH gives her, "Wiitney F. Trainer."
  • First Time Feeling: She's not familiar with emotions other than "joy with her work."
    • Tender Tears: To the points she believes its raining when she cries for the first time.
  • Hidden Depths: For all her quirks and difficulty understanding people, Clair notes she's a quick learner.
  • No Social Skills: Slowly growing out of this trope thanks to the influence of the other campers.
  • Passive-Aggressive Kombat: By endgame, she's adopted this as a favoured tactic.
  • Reality Ensues: Frequently forced to confront this trope outside of her own game.
    • Has little to no education thanks to spending her entire life in a training room.
    • Passes out after not eating or drinking for a week.
    • Her exercises are useful for improving waistlines and flexibility... but not so much for endurance, which Wiitney lacks.
  • Sarcasm-Blind: Leaving her often clueless. Part of why she's so sure for so long that she hasn't been kidnapped at all and nothing is wrong.
  • Through the Eyes of Madness: Says she sees everyone else as Miis.


Super High School Level Swordmaster

"Death is nothing new to me anymore."

Made it to the survivor pool.


Super High School Level Innocence

"I understand if you don't want to talk about it. But if you do, I'd be more than happy to listen."

Made it to the survivor pool.

  • Adaptational Badass: By a combination of character development in-game and being saved from canon's fridge.
  • The Confidant: To Ashley after Dark Pit's death.
  • Good People Have Good Sex: Her secrets motive is a sex tape of her wedding night. She's extremely embarrassed.
  • It's All My Fault: Blames herself for every death in the camp, which the Shadow Bugs take advantage of.
  • Mama Bear: She's especially protective of the younger characters, which is why she gets so furious towards those who murder them. She became instrumental in taking down Ganondorf because she'd recently found out that the Hands had considered taking her own children to the camp instead of her.
  • Silk Hiding Steel: As seen when she walks up to a gloating Betrayus and smacks him.
  • Spared by the Adaptation: She's best known in her canon for dying early, and she'll return to it having survived murderschool instead.
  • Team Chef: Reliably prepares alternatives to the Monofood.
  • Team Mom: Takes care of everyone and worries for their health.


Super High School Level Lancer

"Ah broke once. Ah've got no intention o' breakin' again."

Made it to the survivor pool.

  • Beware the Nice Ones/Beware the Quiet Ones: She's a lancer that's good enough to take down dragons, and helped defeat a goddess...but you'd never know she was a veteran soldier if she didn't mention it, due to being so quiet and nice.
  • Due to the Dead: Assists in the first investigation by guarding the victim's body.
  • Fish out of Temporal Water: Comes from a medieval fantasy setting.
  • Funetik Aksent: Sounds like she's from the southern US.
    • Slightly ironic if you know the canon; her birth village of Ohma is in no way in the 'south', it's near the northern coast of her homeland, Crimea.
    • It became a point of hilarity when False Little Mac, who also has a strong accent, albeit of a Brooklyn variety, tries to mock her for it... and fails miserably because his accent makes it impossible to impersonate her. To the point where she is laughing to the point of tears about it.
  • Never Bareheaded: Does, in fact, sleep in her armor, not just because it's safer, but because of her soldier training, is pretty much used to it. Also won't take it off in public.
  • Repetitive Name: Of the Classic Kurashikku variety; 'Nephenee' is headcanoned by the mun to mean 'marigold', so 'Nephenee Marigold' is literally 'Marigold Marigold'.
  • She's Got Legs / Zettai Ryouiki - Oh yeah.
  • Shrinking Violet: Canonically very much so, has slowly gotten out of it... a bit.
  • Speech Impediment: Her very prominent stutter.
  • You Are Better Than You Think You Are: Got this from Alastor and Shadow both in the second to last trial, where she insisted that she wasn't a hero and that people like her general, Ike, or Queen Elincia or Micaiah were. They shot down the idea pretty quick.

Little Mac

Super High School Level Boxer

"Little Mac doesn' give up!"

The victim of Week 2 (Case 1).

Blade Master Alastor

Super High School Level Rival

"Well, wannabe regicide is a hobby of mine, anyway."

Made it to the survivor pool.


Super High School Level Attendant

"Well... I am cute, I'll give them that."

Made it to the survivor pool.

  • The Beastmaster: While she doesn't have access to her Personae thanks to the power blockers, she still acts this way with... her chicken.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: Can often be found doing weird things like talking to the cuckoo clock's "strangely punctual inhabitant" or setting up a tea party for a bunch of Monobear plushies.
  • Cool Pet: Roc, the cucco she got out of the machine and decided to keep as a pet.
  • Mystical White Hair: If her odd behaviour weren't indicative enough that she's no normal human.
  • Quest Giver: She posts assignments on the bulletin board for people to do things for her in exchange for Monomono Machine loot and/or her eternal gratitude.
  • Signature Move: Well-known enough for her 9999-damage Megidolaons that her Monobear-given last name is "Megidola".
  • Throw the Book at Them: Derails the fourth trial by smacking Monobear with her grimoire. Had no qualms hitting the Shadow Bugs with it earlier that week as well.


Super High School Level Edge

"I have no strings! No wires, no falsehoods! But that is all you are."

Made it to the survivor pool.

  • Arbitrary Skepticism: Doesn't believe in magic, preferring to see it as "unexplained science," despite all his world's weird stuff.
  • Badass Biker: Shadow would like to think he is this. He even draws a motorcycle on the Pictochat to look cool.
  • Butt-Monkey: Monobear likes humiliating him when he tries to stand up to him.
  • Sick Episode: Spends Week 4 in his cabin sick with a cold he caught from the weather in World 3. He makes a short and grumpy appearance at the motive reveal for the week but doesn't get back on his feet until the murder investigation.
  • Sir Swears-a-Lot: Which just serves to amuse or shock some of the other characters who consider him "small and cute."
  • Weaksauce Weakness: Water, as he can't swim.
  • Who Names Their Kid "Dude"?: Gets this reaction from Clarice.

    Smash Ronpa NPCs 

Coach Monobear

"It's an anarchy that I run! It works!"

For tropes common to all Monobears, see Dangan Roleplay Canon Rounds.

Mr. Resetti

"What part of 'I don't listen to no stupid bear' did you not get, bub?"

A grumpy mole found early in the game, who doesn't seem to be affiliated with Monobear but also doesn't want to help the captives.

Don Resetti

"Real sorry about all of this."

Resetti's older brother, who's seemingly more sympathetic to the plight of the campers.

Clarice Rümel

Super High School Level Grunt

"No questions. Just go with it."

A mysterious person who communicates via the Pictochat. A former murderschool graduate and current employee of Monobear.

  • Defector from Decadence: Though she might be a Fake Defector. She is, to a point... but only because Monobear backstabbed her by putting out her victim.
  • Extreme Omnisexual: Develops pathetic and/or hilarious crushes on half the campers, including Shadow.
  • Guest-Star Party Member: Participates in the fourth trial. She claims she's there for moral support.
  • Help Face Turn: Monobear kept her around but dragged out her victim's body to make a trial over it after she'd contacted the group, so she went to meet them face-to-face. Subverted, though, as her response to being backstabbed was to pretend she'd turned good and try to graduate again. Finally done for real in the end, even losing an arm helping the others.
  • Hypocrite: Thinks that "Mario Party" is a narcissistic name... but immediately wants to try and rename it "Clarice Party."
  • Lonely Rich Kid: Used to be bored and listless with a lot of money to burn before she started down her current path.
  • Mysterious Waif: No one knows where she came from or who she is.
  • Tampering with Food and Drink: How she tried to frame Nephenee. It didn't work for its intended purpose.
  • You Remind Me of X: Thinks in the final showdown that the Mastermind reminds her of her old boss.

Master Hand and Crazy Hand

"Everyone's a critic, aren't they? Well, I guess it's good that it only matters if I'm the one entertained!"

The original mastermind team as per canon, but they aren't really the ones in control here...

  • Cain and Abel: Neither is really a good guy, but they are at odds.
  • Genre Blindness: The list of people Ganondorf has backstabbed in his own canon is a few miles long, including among them his own followers the second he got to the Triforce. What on earth made these guys think they were any different?
  • Giant Hands of Doom: Come on, it's SSB. Though the party doesn't fight them together, just the one.
  • Meaningful Name: One of them hints that they gave themselves Super High School Level titles, most likely Dextrous and Sinister... which not only make a lot of sense in their current meanings, they also literally mean "right-handed" and "left-handed".
  • Posthumous Character: Master Hand is already dead when the party finds him.
  • Sibling Team: They're brothers who have always collaborated.
  • The Starscream: Crazy to Master, before falling for the same himself.

The Mastermind (Ganondorf Dragmire)

King of Evil

"After all, I already have power befitting a great ruler."

The one who appeared to the Hand brothers offering help. He was secretly playing them the whole time, aiming to — what else? — get the completed Triforce.

  • Absurdly Sharp Blade: Slices Clarice's arm off in one go!
  • The Power of Hate: Wanted to use the negative emotions from mutual killing games in a complicated plot to draw out the Triforce. When a Mook game failed, he tried one with important characters.
  • The Starscream: Was a successful one to the Hand brothers, all the while tricking Crazy into becoming this for Master.
  • Suicidal Overconfidence: Really should have known better than to drop-kick a Cucco.
  • Villains Out Shopping: Not shown, but apparently he does crunches.
  • You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: Pulls this on Eggman and both Hands, then tells the students he won't do it to them; none of them believes it.

Dr. Eggman

"A brilliant strategy, one that could've only been conjured up by myself."

Hinted to be involved in the plot to trap students in a killing game, Eggman is an adversary of Ganondorf in a clear stated allegory. He appears in the world of the dead, building a machine and trying to get the Triforce for himself.

  • Evil Is Not a Toy: He never learns. The dead point it out to him because he's dead and when he's apparently failed at getting the Triforce.
  • Gadgeteer Genius: Built a machine to siphon the Triforce's power.
  • Insufferable Genius: Insists that the campers feed his ego and acknowledge that he's brilliant. Sadly, he is.
  • Revenge: Seeks this against Ganon.

    Dangan Roleplay: Nick VS CN Characters 

Aelita Stones

Team CN — Super High School Level Damsel-in-Distress

"I hope... once we get out of here, we can all just have a chance to... to do something nice together. Something that doesn't remind us of this place."

One of the victims of Week 4 (Case 3).


Team CN — Super High School Level Space Mercenary

"Eh, death's actually pretty cheap where I'm from. You get used to it."

Made it to the survivor pool.

  • Anime Hair: It sticks up constantly, even without gel.
  • The Cassandra: His impulsive, ill-thought-out theory in the first trial? It was right.
  • Cross-Popping Veins: This happens to him a lot, what with the constant rage.
  • Death Is Cheap: From where he's standing. When asked what they're going to tell the first victim's loved ones, one of his first thoughts is, "Here's the dragon radar, have fun."
  • Lethal Chef: The poor man burns absolutely everything.
  • Leeroy Jenkins: Attempts this during the Mastermind Trial. It goes poorly. But helps provide a distraction the second time.
  • Sir Swears-a-Lot: Prompts Muriel to tell him to watch his language.

Cat Noir

Team Nick — Super High School Level Bad Luck

"Monobear can pretend whatever he wants, but we're all on the same team."

The victim of Week 3 (Case 2).

  • Animal-Themed Superbeing: Stuck in his cat-themed super identity.
  • Born Unlucky: His title.
  • Cats Are Snarkers: Albeit a friendly one, and even the only person to get along with Ren aside from Steven. Still, he has his share of snappy comments.
  • Clingy Costume: Acts like this is the case in order to protect his Secret Identity.
  • Fashion Model: His young career in his civilian life.
  • One Steve Limit: Averts this with Jinafire's canonmate Catty Noir, which is discussed.
  • Paper-Thin Disguise: When he is killed, Monobear removes his Cat Noir profile and puts up one for his secret identity, Adrien Agreste. Several characters on the CN side, who hadn't seen his dead body, see the change in profiles and assume that Cat Noir escaped somehow and Monobear brought in a "new student" to fill his spot.
  • Pungeon Master: Cat puns every other line. Jinafire thought he was from her world.
  • Replacement Goldfish: Ren outright says he's using him as one.
  • Secret Identity Identity: He has some problems with this, given that he's stuck as Cat Noir and can't detransform without outing himself.

Lapis Lazuli

Team CN — Super High School Level Bob

"Seems like organic lifeforms are all really tough, overcoming their physical needs like that."

One of the victims (and culprits) of Week 6 (Case 5).

  • Amazing Technicolor Population: Blue skin.
  • Beware the Quiet Ones: Pose a threat to Steven or betray his trust? She's in your face, physically threatening you.
  • Color-Coded Stones: Her name is Lapis Lazuli. Guess what colour she is.
  • The Caretaker: For Steven and eventually the rest of her team. It goes to ridiculous extents, like clearing the kitchen of common allergens and mailing all the swords and knives to the other team.
  • Grumpy Bear: Refuses to cooperate, listen, wait... anything that isn't "try to break out and/or attack Monobear now." She's done her share of biding her time in prison before.
  • Literal-Minded: Pretends to be this to get out of the fourth challenge.
    "I can't understand metaphors. I'm a rock."
  • Poisonous Friend: Very loyal to Steven and very willing to cause people harm, especially for his sake and amid his protests.

Muriel Bagge

Team CN — Super High School Level Sweetsmaker

"Sometimes it's hard to know when to lie and when to tell the truth. It's a part of life."

Made it to the survivor pool.

  • Badass Unintentional: She keeps the rest of her team in line, couldn't be scared by Monobear, and makes it through challenges nobody expected her to, just by being a regular strong-willed but kindly old lady.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: If you cross her, you will be in for lectures full of rage. She nearly breaks the first culprit by herself just going in on him.
  • Captain Oblivious: Thinks for a long time that everyone is involved in a 'murder mystery dinner'. She also was not tricked by Monobear's attempt to scare her, as she didn't see his costumed form as a threat.
  • Cover Innocent Eyes and Ears: Doesn't want to let the kids see their friends die.
  • Granny Classic: She is the sweet old lady who acts like everyone's grandma.

Kel Kimble

Team Nick — Super High School Level Renaissance Man


The victim of Week 5 (Case 4).

Steven Universe

Team CN — Super High School Level Empathy

" I know you did some bad things, but... I also know you feel really bad about doing them. And... I don't think you're as bad of a person as you're trying to make us think you are..."

Made it to the survivor pool.

  • Befriending the Enemy: His way of life. He's friendly and understanding towards his team, the Nick team, and the NPCs alike, and he does his best to help everyone.
  • Child of Two Worlds: Literally, as his mother was an alien.
  • Half-Human Hybrids: His mom was a sentient space rock. He gets sick when the mould is affecting nonhumans, but his gem doesn't crack or corrupt like Lapis's.
  • Incorruptible Pure Pureness: The other students think so.
  • Morality Pet: To Lapis, who has made no secret of the fact that protecting him is her absolute first and only priority.
  • The Pollyanna: Does whatever he can to keep a sweet, optimistic, friendly outlook.


Team Nick — Super High School Level Politician

"If you have regrets, you can spend time on those later."

Punished following the fourth trial.

Ren Höek

Team Nick — Super High School Level Unhinged

"You'd learn a lot more if you watched my dang TV shows."

Made it to the survivor pool.

  • Baleful Polymorph: He turns into sapient bologna at one point.
  • Companion Cube: Stimpy 2, the big stuffed corn on the cob, which he "befriends" because no one can kill it. Or so he thinks. He finds it ripped apart in Week 5.
  • Hypocrite: Rips a strip out of the second culprit while trying not to acknowledge that he would have done the exact same thing.
  • It's All About Me: Oh, so much. He sets out to make everyone's lives miserable because his only goal is to win, and he flat-out says so.
  • Love Hurts: Because he believes this, he sets out to identify and prevent any budding relationships.
  • The Prankster: A malicious example. Making other people suffer for fun seems to be one of his favourite things, both because he's in it to win and because he thinks it's hilarious.
  • Small, Annoying Creature: Seen as such by his peers.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: Surprising even himself.
    "Before this place? All I cared was about myself. I didn't even treat my only friend right. But (without) these idiots, jerks, and morons... I wouldn't be better than I was."

Jinafire Long

Team Nick — Super High School Level Art Student

"I would have thought that normies would treat monsters more respectfully in worlds where we were only stories, not less."

The culprit of Week 3 (Case 2).


Team Nick — Super High School Level Sarcasm

"That has got to be the dumbest motive in the world. I'm not despairing!"

Made it to the survivor pool.


Team CN — Super High School Level Otaku

"We all love and believe in you! Even if I've known you all for a short time, I am proud to consider you my friends."

The victim of Week 2 (Case 1).

  • Beary Friendly: Though it doesn't stop unfair comparisons to Monobear.
  • Beary Funny: His nerd jokes and silly demeanour make his scenes funny even when he's being Properly Paranoid.
  • Black Bead Eyes: His default state.
  • Death by Genre Savviness: Some of the others suspect that he'll be this because his pop culture knowledge introduced him to the murdergame genre. In fact, he's the first victim instead.
  • Fanboy: Hence the title.
  • Fingerless Hands: Having paws doesn't seem to hinder him much.
  • Plot Allergy: His severe nut allergy.
  • Properly Paranoid: His Genre Savvy alerts him to the nature of the game while everyone else thinks he's losing it. He also guesses early on that someone would try to kill him with his food allergy.
  • Weaksauce Weakness: He thinks his nut allergy is this, being sure that someone will kill him with it. His fears weren't unfounded...

Marinette Dupain-Cheng

Team Nick — Super High School Level Designer

"There are a lot of things we don't know about our situation, and that is scary. But I think we have all seen now that one thing is for certain... we cannot trust Monobear."

Made it to the survivor pool.


Team Nick — Super High School Level Energy

"Emotions nearly got everyone killed last trial. They may still get us all killed."

Made it to the survivor pool.

  • A Form You Are Comfortable With: She's actually an energy being in disguise.
  • Emergent Human: Getting used to the whole human-disguise thing and the concept of emotion.
  • Emotionless Girl: Was this back on her home planet. The pain of murderschool leads her to try and stop feeling again.
  • Extreme Omnivore: Tried eating the wrappers of the Reptar Bars.
  • The Insomniac: After she accidentally fries her handbook out of repressed rage, Zoey can no longer get into her room, so she decides to just pull all-nighters in the kitchen.
  • Shapeshifter Mode Lock: Can't take her Luminan form in the orphanage, since she'd be immortal.
  • Weaksauce Weakness: Faints when someone uses the microwave.

Squidward Tentacles

Team Nick — Super High School Level Bold and Brash

"The point here is that I am literally dying over here and there is a room that does nothing but laugh at me."

One of the victims of Week 6 (Case 5).

Jade Chan

Team CN — Super High School Level Junior Archaeologist

"Normally this is where I'd make a dumb pun about how we're dying for information, but it kinda seems in poor taste here."

The culprit of Week 4 (Case 3).


Team CN — Super High School Level Dirt Eater

"It's not strong to undo your mistakes. It's just something you have to do."

One of the victims of Week 4 (Case 3).


Team CN — Super High School Level Pilgrim

"I'm scared I won't live up to what people think of me."

One of the victims of Week 6 (Case 5).

  • Guile Hero: Traps the first culprit this way.
  • Real Men Wear Pink: He's insecure about his art and music, but Squidward assures him that they're very manly.
  • Shrinking Violet: Wirt is very shy and doesn't believe that the others really do like him.
  • Wouldn't Hit a Girl: Hesitates at this when he's made to fight Zoey in a challenge.

Daffy Duck

Team CN — Super High School Level Beautician

"Well when you say it like that, of course it sounds bad!"

The culprit of Week 2 (Case 1).

  • At Least I Admit It: "People lie all the time! I, personally, lie constantly!"
  • I Just Want to Have Friends: His desperation for people to like him led him to commit the first murder.
  • I Just Want to Be Special: He even assumes that he's been taken to Wizarding School to finally live out his heroic fantasies.
  • It's All About Me: Accused of this by Muriel.
  • Lethal Chef: All his cooking tastes terrible. Word of God says that trying the half-eaten cookie found by Panda would have absolved Muriel from the Frame-Up, since Daffy actually made it and it was awful.
  • Real Men Wear Pink: His title and his choker, the latter of which conceals crucial evidence.
  • Tragic Dream: Wanting to have friends and have everyone's approval led him to kill Panda, whom he thought was The Mole. This instead made Daffy an unsympathetic murderer in their eyes and led nearly everyone to completely turn against him.

Vlad Masters

Team Nick — Super High School Level Cheesehead

"If our Housemaster plans on turning us into our own worst enemies, then we should 'know our enemies and know ourselves.'"

The culprit of Week 5 (Case 4).

    Dangan Roleplay: Nick VS CN NPCs 

Housemaster Monobear

"You orphans are all the same, filled to the brim with disgusting, putrid, HOPE!"


Coach (Team Nick)

"I'm just a friendly neighbourhood face, like all of you."

  • Ambiguous Innocence: Cute, emotional, and sees murder like a sport. Subverted, though, as it turns out: he knows what Monobear is doing is wrong, but is too afraid to keep fighting against him.
  • Bad Job, Worse Uniform: Monobear forces TOM and Face into dorky uniforms for every motive.
  • Forced into Evil: Was tortured as a science experiment and is being forced to work for Monobear.
  • Happily Adopted: By Zoey after the final trial.
  • Rebel Leader: He was one, but was captured and tortured until he agreed to work for his enemies.


Coach (Team CN)

"I was in a dark place, and he gave me a way out."


"Well, this Monobear guy sounds like a real shady character!"

The courier enabling communication between the two teams.

Dr. Zalost

"I do not like being sad, but I have decided to embrace it."

The mastermind's right hand and fall guy, whom Katz manipulates into helping him and sends into a depressed spiral.

  • Abusive Parents: He was originally this, and after being rehabilitated, was very repentant and loving towards Rat. However, due to his past, it was easy for Katz to manipulate Zalost into thinking that Rat had run away.
  • Amazing Technicolor Population: Green, though he gains some colour back when Rat is returned to him.
  • Death Seeker: Why he agreed to be the Fall Guy.
  • Fall Guy: The plan is for him to pretend to be the Mastermind and force the students to vote for him to be executed, leaving Katz to do whatever he likes.
  • Mad Scientist: His occupation.

The Mastermind (Katz)

"Oh, you orphans are so clever, I just couldn't help myself."

  • The Beastmaster: Controls a legion of scary spiders.
  • The Corrupter: A painting of Aku starts talking late at night to try and tempt Ren to kill. It's initially suspected to be Vlad, but he claims he didn't do it; sure enough, it's actually this guy.
  • Fantastic Racism: In fitting with a round that heavily focused on it. His manipulation and poor treatment of Ren is a hint to his hatred of dogs.
  • For Science!: His stated reason for targeting Lapis with the corrupting agent. He also threatens to gem Steven just to see what will happen.
  • Lean and Mean: Very thin and probably the most evil mastermind in DRRP history, and we are counting Junko and Monaka.
  • Sadist: The one behind all of the worst parts of the Home, and abuses his own subordinates with distressing regularity.
  • Spider Swarm: The Mastermind's Weapon of Choice.
  • Terms of Endangerment: Calls almost everybody "dear" when he's attacking or threatening them.

Jorgen von Strangle

"Believe me. You do not have a reason to be sad yet."

The mysterious "Subject 3," only revealed in the finale.

  • The Brute: In the Mastermind's stable, though he's being blackmailed and forced into it.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: Monobear's enforcer, "Subject 3," is The Brute and apparently didn't need to be tortured into submission, but still won't harm Mailbox. Though Jorgen isn't actually evil — he was forced, just with blackmail and breaking his spirit instead of torture.
  • I Let Gwen Stacy Die: Mourns Rolf, the only kid who could handle him as a fairy godparent. Though, as it turns out, Rolf lived through being Fed to the Beast.
  • Obstructive Bureaucrat: Even when he tries to be helpful.

How well does it match the trope?

Example of:
