Super Duper High School Screams-Like-A-Bitch
An Ordinary High-School Student who was accepted to the extraordinary Hope's Peak Academy, only to find himself locked in a killing game with 14 other students. Now, with the threat of murder all around him, he must solve the mystery of each chapter and get out unharmed - though, given how his classmates act, this might be harder than he expected.
Tropes associated with Naegi:
- Agent Mulder: See Not So Above It All below.
- Catchphrase: Tends to begin his internal dialogue with "At this time, I realized..."
- "You've got that wrong!" in Class Trials. Once used "Sore wa chigau yo!" when caught up in Maizono's gratuitous Japanese.
- Subverted Catchphrase: When Oowada admits to knowing Togami's browsing history, something he shouldn't be able to know, Naegi yells "You've got that...right?!"
- Comical Overreacting: The "Meet the Students" special states that the only reason he's in the show is because of this. It's in his title, after all.
- Covert Pervert: His internet browsing history Monokuma used as blackmail mostly consisted of trying to find naked pictures of Maizono.
- Chivalrous Pervert: He never tried anything funny with her while she was alive and freaked out over the idea of naked pictures of her being made public.
- Deadpan Snarker: He often assumes this role when the other students start acting stupid. He especially does this with Togami, either bluntly refusing his order or sarcastically going along with them.
- Fetish: Heavily implied to have one for girls with noodle cups on their head, if his browser history in episode 4 is anything to go by. May have been a Call-Forward to Kirigiri (his Implied Love Interest in the actual canon) having a noodle cup on her head in one episode.
- Giving Up on Logic: Appears to go through this in episode 5. It's hard to blame him, considering the insanity he goes through.Naegi: Yeah, sure. As if anything else had to make sense today.
- Nice Guy: Shown by how he actually is willing to put up with some of the others, and calls some of the people out on their more callous behavior.
- Not So Above It All: While he's generally one of the saner students, he has a tendency to comically overreact to things.
- He also has no problem suspecting Celes is an actual demon.
- Only Sane Man: After Kirigiri, he's the most sound-minded of the students. Among other things, he realizes that murdering others is only playing into Monokuma's paws and he leads the trials alongside Kirigiri.
- Screams Like a Little Girl: It's in his title for a reason. Maizono's death is a good example of this.
- Sweet on Polly Oliver: Gender-inverted - he is certain that he won't regret having the hots for Chihiro.
- Took a Level in Badass: When it comes to the Class Trials, Naegi goes from pretty incompetent (First Trial) to being able to somewhat hold his own but need Kirigiri to help (Second Trial) to handling the whole trial on his own and exposing the culprit (Third Trial) singlehandedly.
- Took A Level In Cynicism: Compare the tone of Naegi's first line in the series (hope and a bit of excitement) to his lines by DRAT to the Future (dry sarcasm and unenthusiastic).
Super Duper High School Hardass
A stickler for the rules (to the point where he's practically sticky), Ishimaru is a morally-focused young man who is good at deciding what is and is not acceptable in a school environment... and not much else. He later develops an intense friendship with Oowada (which is heavily implied to have gone even further than that) that leads to tragedy when the latter is found guilty and executed.
Tropes associated with Ishimaru:
- Ambiguously Gay: Starts getting rather obvious with Oowada in episode 4.
- Badass Boast: Declaring that his balls are made out of brass, and forged in the line of duty as hall monitor.
- Blunt "Yes": Two in rapid succession in Episode 4.Oowada: Man, you must have some big balls to try telling me what to do, bitch!Ishimaru: Precisely! I have brass balls, forged in the line of duty as hall monitor!Oowada: All right, bro, then let's see those balls! It's time for a bro-off! (they head to the sauna)Naegi: You guys are aware of how this looks, right?Ishimaru: Absolutely! And we care not for appearances!
- Fetish: Episode 3 reveals that he has one for debates.
- Hypocritical Humor: Telling Oowada, "You could stand to control your voluuuuume!"
- Laser-Guided Amnesia: Played for Laughs when he attempts to use his Forget Beam (particularly after a noticeably homoerotic encounter with Oowada).
- Mad Libs Catchphrase: "X is not welcome in a school environment!" (Or, in episode 3, "This debate was very much welcome in my pants environment.")
- Gets a bit more variation in "The Pursuit of Happiness" with "This is not welcome in a ship environment" and "Your social life is not welcome in this moon environment."
- No Indoor Voice: Which is why he doesn't have much of a leg to stand on to criticize Oowada for being loud.
- No Social Skills: Lampshaded in the Meet the Students video. An extra on Faulerro's Tumblr shows 'HOW DO I MAKE FRIENDS' in his Google search history.
Super Duper High School Prick
The son of the owner of a wealthy corporation, Togami's immense wealth is overshadowed by the fact that he is a gigantic prick. He's detached from the other students and treats every single one with contempt (except Celes). Episode 4 reveals that he searches for murder mystery porn in his spare time, which contributes to his tampering with the crime scene.
Tropes associated with Togami:
- Blunt "Yes": After it turns out that he's been stringing everyone along by altering the crime scene of the second murder to make Genocider Syo look like the suspect.Oowada: Man, you're a prick!Togami: And your point is?
- Breaking the Fourth Wall: While investigating Fujisaki's corpse, he tells Naegi to "throw bits of evidence at the screen with no real explanation," prompting Naegi to ask if he's OK.
- Catchphrase: "Oh, yes" and, starting in episode 4, "Tell them, Naegi".
- Character Blog: Here, as seen in episode 4.
- Fetish: Apparently, murder mysteries.
- It's All About Me: He is a very self-centered snob.
- Jerkass: It's in his title. He even smugly responds to Oowada calling him "a prick," by saying "And your point is?"
- Jerkass Has a Point: Hagakure calls him "an asshole with a point" after Togami says that the mastermind has a traitor among them and sees Alter Ego as "an unfair advantage" against him, which is why it was stolen. Then again, he is most likely wrong about said traitor stealing Alter Ego in this abridged series.
- Lack of Empathy: He shows no sorrow over the murder victims. Even considering Maizono is The Friend Nobody Likes, he's the most open in rejoicing over her death, and he fairly callously says "Enough of this mourning bollocks, let's get straight to the investigation," when investigating Fujisaki's corpse. After running around chasing the alleged creeper in Episode 5, his reaction to Yamada screaming sells it.[exhasperated] "This had better be a bloody corpse this time."
- Mad Libs Catchphrase: "You are/have X the esteemed Y of Byakuya Togami!"
- They Call Me Mister Tibbs: On his Tumblr account, he demands to be referred to as "The Esteemed Lord Togami."
- Troll: Another reason for his crime scene tampering, as deduced by Kirigiri.
- Upper-Class Twit: So high and mighty that he pretty much considers Naegi to be his slave. Apparently, he doesn't even know how to use a computer.
Super Duper High School Needless Violence
The head of a famous Japanese biker gang, whose title befits his Hair-Trigger Temper. Episode 4 reveals that he's secretly a furry, and after Chihiro meets with him and tries to console him about it he snaps and kills him in a fit of rage, and ends up turned into butter in his execution. Don't question it.
Tropes associated with Oowada:
- Accidental Murder: He kills Chihiro when he loses his temper. In the past, he also accidentally killed his brother, by yiffing. Somehow.
- Ambiguously Gay: With Ishimaru.
- Anime Hair: Lampshaded by Greg in the "Meet the Students" special.
- Blunt "Yes": When Ishimaru confronts him about how he's acting like a murderer, he says he "kinda did it".
- Cruel and Unusual Death: He gets turned into butter. Somehow.
- Digging Yourself Deeper: After Naegi catches him on his first I Never Said It Was Poison Moment, he says "I don't know anything! I don't even know how you search for pictures of that dead chick all the time."
- Furry Fandom: Secretly a member of it, which is what drove him to kill Fujisaki.
- Hair-Trigger Temper: It's his talent after all.
- I Never Said It Was Poison: Lets slip the fact that he knows Togami's browsing history while trying to suggest that Togami killed Fujisaki to avoid having it get out.
- Insistent Terminology: His hair resembles a baguette, not a corncob.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Not a bad guy once you get to know him.
- No Indoor Voice: Like Ishimaru.
Super Duper High School Jock
A star baseball player whose excellence at sports excuses him from being a complete idiot otherwise. He ends up being the first murderer, being executed by Monokuma with a thousand baseballs.
Tropes associated with Kuwata:
- Adaptational Villainy: In the game, he killed Maizono in what was arguably a case of self defense, although the fact that he went back to get his toolbox and open her door throws that into question. In here, he kills her for calling him a "weenie."
- Butt-Monkey: His lines repeatedly get cut off by other characters, he gets called a weenie by the girl he tries to get with, and nobody is interested enough in his character's Hidden Depths.
- Casanova Wannabe: As he confesses in a Motive Rant. He "hadn't gotten any in forever," and thought he had a chance with Maizono, but her rejecting him and calling him a weenie drove him into a rage.
- Curse Cut Short: "You son of a— BALLSBALLSBALLSBALLSBALLSBALLSBALLS!"
- Disproportionate Retribution: Kills Maizono for calling him a "weenie."
- Dumb Jock: As Naegi points out concerning his attempts to cover up his crime. He also uses his talent with baseball to get away with being a complete idiot outside of the sport.
- Implausible Deniability : Claims his first name is not Leon, despite wearing a name tag.
- I Think You Broke Him: After Naegi accuses him of murdering Maizono and he enters his Madness Mantra.Byakuya: What is he even saying?Celestia: I think he is broken.
- Madness Mantra: "AHO-AHO-AHO-AHO-AHO!!..."
- Nobody Calls Me "Chicken"!: Maizono called him a "weenie", which enraged him enough to kill her.
- Too Dumb to Live: Naegi remarks that only he would be stupid enough to fail to cover up the murder the way he did, failing to notice Maizono's Dying Clue or the piece of his shirt falling out of the incinerator.
- When All You Have Is a Hammer...: It's pointed that "throwing a round object at something" (more specifically, throwing his shirt into the incinerator and throwing Hagakure's crystal ball at the "on" button) was the only way he could dispose of the evidence.
- You Have Got to Be Kidding Me!!: Utters this when he finds out what his punishment is going to be.
Super Duper High School Dork Supreme
Perhaps the biggest nerd in the entire country, who won't give the time of day to anyone who doesn't know about comics, cartoons, video games, sci-fi series, or other things of that nature. He's also an amateur pornographer (though he prefers "artist").
Tropes associated with Yamada:
- Adaptational Villainy: In the game, Celes claims Ishimaru attacked her and stole Alter Ego, to which he responds with This Is Unforgivable! Here, she claims Ishimaru supports women's rights and fair criticism of video games, and he doesn't even notice when she tosses in Alter Ego on the side.
- Fat Comic Relief: Referenced by Asahina upon discovering his body the first time.Asahina: Not the fat guy! He was funny, because of his weight...
- His Name Is...: He dies midsentence, only managing to tell the gang that his murderer is "the Bum...", getting Hagakure framed.
- Insistent Terminology: Regarding Alter Ego.Kirigiri: Apparently Yamada mistook Alter Ego for an advanced porn game.Yamada: The correct term is eroge!
- It's Not Porn, It's Art: What he considers his... passion.
- Nerd: But of course.
- Otaku: Same.
- Out of Focus: He doesn't get very many lines in episodes 2, 3, or 4.
- A Death in the Limelight: He gets more focus in Episode 5, and dies at the end of the episode.
- Phrase Catcher: "Yamada, no." Said by Naegi whenever his mind goes in the gutter, and gets used as an Ironic Echo when he turns up dead.
Super Duper High School Bum
A man who is way too old to even be in high school, but was admitted to Hope's Peak primarily on how hilarious his tendency to bum off other people was.
Tropes associated with Hagakure:
- Anime Hair: An afro-like... thing.
- Butt-Monkey: Gets repeatedly "penalized" by Monokuma in episode 3 (which returns in a brief scene at the end of episode 4). The third time he gets penalized in Episode 3 is for something Oowada did.
- The Ditz: His talent is being a bum. Do the math.
Hagakure: "It's true, I'm useless!"
- This is used in his defense in Episode 6 where Naegi points out that Hagakure is too incompetent to pull off such an elaborate murder.
- Eye Scream: Both his eyes are hit with darts as a penalty by Monokuma.
- Fortune Teller: His future seeing abilities are heavily downplayed in favor of showing his bum side.
- Frame-Up: Gets framed by the third culprit and by Yamada's dying words, but Naegi sets everyone straight by pointing out how he can't even button his shirt right.

- I Always Wanted to Say That: His reason for yelling "OBJECTION!", which gets him a dart in the eye from Monokuma.
- Lazy Bum: It's his title and his first scene involves him asking Naegi for money.
- Third Eye: Episode 4 has this part of him getting hit by a pair of Genoscissors.
Super Duper High School B-List Celebrity
A member of the somewhat popular idol group "The Kawaii Choir", whose grating use of weeaboo speak annoys everyone who listens to her (except Naegi). Leon has a crush on her, and when she rejects him and calls him a weenie he stabs her with a knife, marking the first murder of the series.
Tropes associated with Maizono:
- Ambiguously Bi: She's sweet on Naegi (until given motive to backstab him) and also claims to have had a drunken orgy with the rest of the Kawaii Choir.
- Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Was planning to murder someone and frame Naegi for it.
- Gratuitous Japanese: She uses it constantly, even though she is already Japanese.

- Third-Person Person: As if her speaking style wasn't annoying and cutesy enough.
- Too Dumb to Live: The person she tries to murder? A jock several times stronger than her.
Super Duper High School Mystery Chick
An Emotionless Girl who solves the murder mystery plots much more efficiently than everyone else (save for perhaps Naegi and even more questionably Togami). Though her voice is stoic, she frequently expresses her disapproval of the other students' idiocy.
Tropes associated with Kirigiri:
- Agent Scully: Is unable to solve the last bit of the third trial because "it doesn't make any sense."
- Ambiguously Bi: After noticing that Monokuma offered every student naked pictures of Maizono, she admits to being curious, and also takes offense to Makoto unintentionally implying she isn't pretty.
- Brutal Honesty: When Alter Ego asks about what happened to Chihiro, she types, "Oowada crushed their head."
- Catchphrase: "If I have to guess..." and "Ah. My suspicions are confirmed."
- Deadpan Snarker: Practically every line she has involves her snarking at something.Kirigiri: Yes, it's hard to believe pressing the same button over and over isn't yielding any results.
- Emotionless Girl: She isn't the Mystery Chick for nothing. Her introduction in the "Meet the Students" special says it all:Monokuma: Mention the fact that she's emotionless as crap!
- Expy: As the episodes progress, it becomes less difficult to imagine her most of her lines being said by Daria.
- Not So Different: Celestia claims that Kirigiri alone shares her cynicism and indifference to her classmates. Kirigiri is less than thrilled.
- Only Sane Woman: 24/7, especially considering that she seems to be the only one who does actual investigation work. If it wasn't for her, everyone but the culprit would have died during Maizono's trial.
- Sophisticated as Hell: "Let's show these dense motherfuckers some logic, shall we?"
- The Stoic: Even the occasional moments where she's clearly feeling some emotion don't have her raising her voice beyond the usual monotone.
Super Duper High School Donut Nut
An avid swimmer whose main claim to fame is her love of donuts - it's believed that she will die if she doesn't consume them enough.
Tropes associated with Asahina:
- Deadpan Snarker: Despite being The Ditz, she actually gets a few moments of this. Particularly this line:Asahina: After all the junk swinging between those guys, I'd actually welcome amnesia.
- The Ditz: Her head is as empty as the hole in one of her donuts.

- Shipper on Deck: Supports Celes/Togami, much to Fukawa's displeasure.
- Trademark Favorite Food: Take a wild guess.
Super Duper High School Shut-In
A reclusive author whose romantic novel Moist Dreams in Malaysia made her famous. Despite her success as a writer, her true passion is her social justice blog, where she vents her frustrations on all those who displease her: people. She especially dislikes cis white males like Naegi (despite everyone being Japanese).
Tropes associated with Fukawa:
- All Love Is Unrequited: Her crush on Togami is both hopeless and ironic.
- Character Blog: The URL is briefly seen in episode 4 - see it here.

Super Duper High School Beefcake
A very strong girl who "wouldn't look out of place in a Street Fighter game" and is very, very muscular and intimidating.

- Blood Knight : See Proud Warrior Race Girl below.
- Dumb Muscle: When she thinks that Alter Ego is Fujisaki trapped in a computer.
- Horrifying the Horror: Monokuma finds her terrifying, which says quite a lot about her.
- Lady Looks Like a Dude: Lampshaded several times. The very first bit of her introduction in the "Meet the Students" special has Greg simply stating that she's a woman.
- Proud Warrior Race Girl: As the quote above and Greg's statement about her in the " Meet the Students " special clearly show, she is obsessed with the honor of the battlefield and respects only those she estimates to be, in her own words, " followers of the warrior's way ". The only people she dubbed as such so far are Oowada and, strangely enough, Naegi.
Celestia Ludenberg, a.k.a. Grand Spite Demon Thebumphor
Super Duper High School Hellspawn /Super Duper Hell School Actual Demon
A gambler who is believed to have come from Hell itself, a theory which holds more weight due to her frequent outburts of demonic rage.
Tropes associated with Celes:
- Audience Surrogate: To Dangan Ronpa's detractors, given her speech in Episode 6.
- Bi the Way/Lipstick Lesbian: One of the two. Has a thing for Kirigiri and promises to "show her a good time" if she wants when she goes to Hell.
- Compelling Voice: YOU WILL EAT THE STRAWBERRY, CREATURE OF FLESH!!!
- Dragged Off to Hell: And is perfectly fine with that.
- Even Evil Has Standards: Despises Monokuma's voice from the game's dub. Also, she finds The Legions of Hell less insufferable than her classmates.

- Face of an Angel, Mind of a Demon: Gothic looking angel rest assured but her demonic tendencies show up often enough.
- Nightmare Fetishist: A fan of Genocider Syo.
- Obviously Evil: Her title is an obvious indicator, for one.
- Ooh, Me Accent's Slipping: She starts doing this in the fifth episode, sometimes taken on a Southern accent.
- She also does this in the sixth episode in a poor attempt to throw Naegi off his game.
- "The Reason You Suck" Speech: Gives one before she's killed about how Asahina is nothing but a donut obsessed idiot and that she looks forward to Asahina having diabetes, Ishimaru was just a catchphrase spewer and how the only person she actually didn't hate was Kirigiri.
- Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: She's thrilled at her execution since she can finally get away from her annoying classmates.
- See You in Hell: A quite literal example since she's a demon. She assures Kirigiri that she'll be ending up in hell.
- Voice of the Legion: In her scarier moments. Turns out to be part of her being an actual hellspawn.
- Xanatos Gambit: If she got away with murdering Yamada and Ishimaru, Monokuma would off her annoying classmates. If she was caught, she'd get a return trip to hell. Either way, she'd get what she wanted.
Junko Enoshima (actually Mukuro Ikusaba)
Super Duper High School Airhead
A very attractive girl who (put frankly) isn't very smart and has very little personality. She's also a bit of a jerkass. Because of this, she gets personally killed by Monokuma early on. She reappears in "The End of Hope's Peak", not yet disguised as Junko.
Tropes associated with fake Enoshima:
- Brainless Beauty: Lampshaded in her intro and is also her talent.

A timid young student who spends most of his time on the computer. Even before "her" death at the hands of Oowada, many jokes are made about both his real gender and the Tumblr users who get upset over others interpreting him as cis instead of transgender.
Tropes associated with Fujisaki:
- Ambiguous Gender Identity: After The Reveal, no further effort is made to clarify what their identity is. Kirigiri only states that they were assigned male at birth before Monokuma declares that they "never talk about this again."note
- Character Exaggeration: His gender identity is given much more focus than her programming skills.
- Dude Looks Like a Lady: His talent lampshades this.
- Gender-Neutral Writing: Everyone calls Chihiro "they" after The Reveal.

- Giggling Villain: Her only lines as of writing this are just her giggling.

- The Woman Behind the Teddy Bear: She controls Monokuma from a safe location.

- Even Evil Has Standards: Even he doesn't dare bring the wrath of Tumblr to his series.

Tropes associated with Chisa Yukizome:

- Early-Bird Cameo: He doesn't have an anime adaption, which is why he is just an animated sprite.
- Ordinary High-School Student: He doesn't have a special talent, noted by his lack of a SDHS title. He's obviously very out of place in Hope's Peak.

- Take That!: He hopes that his game's anime won't be "a condensed rush job" like the Danganronpa anime.
