Nico has a large library of voices. A laaaaaaaaarge library of voices. Here's a list of them and what tropes apply to them. note
WARNING!! Many of these characters spoil the games they appear in, with spoilers as far back as Corpse Party or 999. Some, but NOT all spoilers have been covered up as they're either surprise revelations that aren't always brought up by Nico (such as the true character of Nagito Komaeda being a Late-Arrival Spoiler for example), is a plot point that hasn't currently been revealed to Nico as of yet, or if it spoils a plot to Nico's Council of Voices series.
PROCEED AT YOUR OWN RISK.
We call Monokuma Nico's oldest voice, but if you really think about it, this is it. This is Nico's real voice (although he does often dip into other characters even while not voicing them). Nico's normal voice is usually given to leading male characters to avoid putting too much stress on his throat.
Council of Voices (Original Wave of Members)
These voices are members of the Council of Voices introduced in episode 1.
Nico's oldest voice, originally starting as a Mickey Mouse impression. He is one of the nine contestants in the Nonary Game, and his forbidden action is to laugh.
- Asshole Victim: Nobody (except for Donald due to him thinking he was King Mickey) felt bad for his death due to his role in the killing games.
- Cute Is Evil: Usually assigned to roles like these.
- Clone Army: Has a factory that mass-produces multiple Monokuma copies.
- Did I Just Say That Out Loud?: He planned to ruin the voice-coming dance, only for Seven to say that his "inner monologue" was heard by everyone.
- Driven to Suicide: In Nico's interpretation of DR1's Bad Ending, Monokuma grew incredibly bored without any Class Trials, and ended up spin-drying himself to death.
- Even Evil Has Standards: He believes that Crazy Gonta was a little too insane for even him.
- The Friend Nobody Likes: Within the Council of Voices
- Laser-Guided Karma: Things are not going well for Monokuma by the end of Nico's Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony LP as he lost his job, gets thrown in Zero's Deadly Game, lost his claws, and has all of his back-up Monokumas get destroyed. Quite a karmic irony given how he was the host of fifty-three killing games. Then, come to Episode 7 of the COV where he was Killed Off for Real.
- Last of His Kind: Is the only Monokuma left after Zero destroys his Monokuma factory and all the spare Monokumas in existence.
- No Biological Sex: Is immune to the Security Chief's Scrotal Punch due to having no genitals.
- Blessed with Suck: He really doesn't like not having genitals.
- Off with His Head!: Ends up decapitated by a mysterious person. Being a robot, this doesn't kill him, allowing him to give a monolouge before his assailant's coup de grace.
- Oh, Crap!: Gives this reaction when he realizes that Zero had blown up his Monokuma-creating factory.
- Out of Focus: He only shows up during the second episode of the Nonary Game Arc at the start of that episode and he doesn't appear again.
- Poke the Poodle: His plan to ruin the voice-coming dance was.....making waffles fall from the ceiling and singing his own version of Ballroom Blitz.
- Seems to be subverted when people ACTUALLY start fighting each other after hearing the song. Though it's later disproved around when Godot reveals he put crack in the coffee being served out.
- Signature Laugh: Monokuma's canon laugh of "Upupupupu!" is interpreted by Nico as what seems to be the most trilled L in existence.
- Lampshaded in his Danganronpa 3 (Side: Future, episode 1) reaction video): "(In his own voice) Really? That's actually the sound he makes, he goes 'up (pronounced "oop") up up up?', (In his Monokuma voice) I'm actually sounding that out? I thought it was supposed to be my goofy laugh, no, I'm actually saying 'oop oop oop oop!' How does that sound like a laugh to anybody?!"
- Evil Laugh
- Taking You with Me: Uses his forbidden action right before dying to trigger a bomb next to his killer.
- Trademark Favorite Food: Martinis.
- Who Wants to Live Forever?: When Zero destroys all of his copies, Monokuma takes a moment to let the feeling of mortality sink into him...only to outright reject the concept of only having one life.Monokuma: How the hell do you guys live with this feeling every day!?
Lord Turkey Sandwich
The voice of everybody's favorite Cloudcuckoolander judge, who's even crazier in Nico's interpretation. Runs the Council of Voices. This voice is usually given to old male characters.
- Ascended Extra: An admittedly important but relatively minor character in the Ace Attorney series, the head of the entire council in The Council of Voices.
- Bunny-Ears Lawyer: Even being a Cloudcuckoolander doesn't hold him back from being able to hold his authority over Monokuma and get away with using Togami's credit card.
- Catchphrase: Several.
- Instead of saying "Order in the court!", the Judge will say "Shut the fuck up, everybody!"
- Whenever court goes to a recess, the Judge will always enthusiastically shout "MONKEY BARS!"
- At the end of a trial: "Let the confetti fly!"
- Crack Ship / MayDecember Romance: With Komaeda.
- Everyone Has Standards: He's rather incompetent and can be a Bad Boss at times, but even he realizes the seriousness of the Nonary Game after Mayuri is found dead, calling Nico on an emergency phone to call him out on his in-action.
- Kangaroo Court: Threatens to pull this if Togami goes through with filing charges for using his credit card.
- Karma Houdini: Uses Togami's credit card to pay for the council HQ's repairs, and when Togami threatens to sue, the Judge retorts that he'll make himself the presiding judge over it, forcing Togami to back down.
- Reality Warper: Is apparently able to connect Oliver's sentience to the council's headquarters.
- Skewed Priorities: Played with. While worrying about the well-being of your lover is a perfectly understandable thing to do, disregarding the safety of eight other missing people isn't.
- Played straight with Too Dumb to Live below.
- Too Dumb to Live: On the day the Judge's supercomputer was installed, he left the job to an unknown individual to go on a date with Komaeda. The investigators have to explicitly point out to him what a bone-headed move that was.Kirigiri: There's a good chance that your system has been compromised. Or...well, has always been compromised.Badd: By the very person you called to install it.Judge: Are you serious? Damn. Togami should really ask for his money back.
- Trademark Favorite Food: Turkey sandwiches.
- To the point where the Voicecoming Dance shopping list's only non-bagel-related item is thirty pounds of sliced turkey.
- Transformation Sequence: As Investigations show, the Judge can apparently go Super Saiyan.
- What the Hell, Hero?: Delivers one of these to Nico, of all people, at the end of episode 8, after finding Mayuri's corpse:Judge: What the hell do you think you're doing? [...] Don't give me that, you know damn well what I mean! There's no way you haven't heard by this point what's been happening. I realize this phone is only meant to be used in emergencies, but if this doesn't count as an emergency, I don't know what does. [...] Voices are dying, voices that I know mean a lot to you. It's hard to imagine you're okay with this. I honestly can't even believe I'm having to call you about this! I thought for sure you'd be the first to do something, but you've yet to move a single finger! Well? [...] Beyond your control? What kind of bullshit is that?!? Are you listening to yourself? Listen. Years ago, you tasked me with looking over this council and taking care of the voices here. You said to only call you if all measures have been exhausted. Well, guess the fuck what? They've been exhausted! Everything has gone to shit, and we're failing! I'm failing. If nothing else is done, everything you helped make will be destroyed. Are you really okay with that? What about the voices? What about Chiaki? Don't you care if she dies? Do you know where they are? If so, then at least tell me. Say something, dammit!
Nico: I'm sorry. [hangs up]
The One True Hope Bagel
Possibly the most popular Nico voice. Usually assigned to the crazies, and is also the Green Horny Ranger. He is one of the nine contestants in the Nonary Game, and his forbidden action is to fall into despair. He nearly dies when poisoned from said forbidden action, but Togami cuts off his arm to keep him alive.
- An Arm and a Leg: When Komaeda is poisoned in the Nonary Game, his right arm is cut off by Togami to save the both of them.
- Angst? What Angst?: Averted in the Nonary Game in regards to Seven's death.Togami: You don't seem that upset to me.
- Ax-Crazy: Pretty much.
- Ascended Extra: Well, not "extra", but Komaeda does appear in the Ace Attorney LPs as the bailiff, due to his relationship with the Judge.
- Born Lucky: Referred to as "bullshit powers", due to their Reality Warper nature.
- Card-Carrying Villain: Well, certainly not a bad person at heart, though he does seem to take pride in his own insanity.
- Crack Ship/MayDecember Romance: Nico pairs him (as the Bailiff) with the Judge, even going so far as to combine their favorite foods into a "turkey bagel sandwich."
- Despair Event Horizon: He crosses this in the Nonary Game where he ran into a room full of waffles. He would have died because of it thanks to his forbidden action if it weren't for Togami saving him.
- Everyone Has Standards: Despite his tendency of see people as stepping stones (i.e. himself and other talentless people) in his own game, he's disgusted by Naia's similar mentality since she kills other council members, to the point that he's incredibly angry.
- Full-Frontal Assault: As the Green Horny Ranger, he can flash people to stun them. Yes, that kind of flash.
- Humiliation Conga: The Turbo Dismount series basically serves as this. It doesn't really seem to affect him, though.Komaeda: I get the feeling you're living out some sick, twisted fantasy, Nico. And I like it.
- The Lancer/Token Evil Teammate: In the Horny Rangers series.
- Vitriolic Best Buds: Forms a seemingly one-side friendship with Seven.
- Last-Name Basis: As with quite a few of Nico's voices. This one is particularly odd because while his Dangan Ronpa 1 playthrough was of the fan translation where everyone was this, his playthough of 2 (Komaeda's original game) was of the official translation where everyone was on a first-name basis.
- O.O.C. Is Serious Business: Him eating waffles instead of bagels is the easiest way to tell he's fallen into despair.
- Russian Roulette: Enjoys it wholeheartedly. Has, quite obviously, never lost, despite... well:Komaeda: You're supposed to use six bullets, right?
- Spanner in the Works: Although Chiaki gets close to solving it, It's ultimately Komaeda's investigation skills and deductions that allow the surviving council members to corner Mayuri and reveal her to be Naia.
- Trademark Favorite Food: Bagels.
- Also bananas, on occasion.
- Tranquil Fury: While he never raises his voice, he makes it very clear he is extremely angry about the murder of his fellow council members, punctuating it by clenching his hand to the point of causing it to bleed while interogating Naia.
- Verbal Tic: Likes to end his sentences with a "Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight?" that slowly rises in pitch as it's dragged out.
- At one point, this is mocked by Monaca. Inexplicably, however, it's not part of Nico's ad-libbing - it's an actual voice-acted clip.
- Vocal Evolution: Started as a slightly deeper Naegi voice. Ended up whatever the hell he is now.
- Wingding Eyes: His rippling "crazy eyes", even moreso in Ultra Despair Girls.
Definitely not Nico's most favorite character ever. Assigned to nerdy characters, and is also the Blue Horny Ranger. He is one of the nine contestants in the Nonary Game, and his forbidden action is running
- Ascended Extra: The random student from Persona 4 is this, getting his own montage dedicated to his running during the game. He even lampshades this himself in Persona 4 Arena Ultimax, where he claims he has gone from "side character to semi-side character".
- Because You Were Nice to Me: He opts to stay behind in the facility to help Chiaki, since she forced Naia to let him go.
- Butt-Monkey: Nico can never seem to stop abusing him.
- Cargo Ship: Averted.Morishige: No, I will not date you, truck!
- Catchphrase: "Oh no! MEGATRON!"
- Cool Guns: Uses one as the Blue Horny Ranger.
- Also has one in Jeff's (Moshi's) official art in EarthBound.
- A Day in the Limelight: Takes the lead part in the Axiom Verge livestream.
- Dirty Coward: Subverted. Episode 7 of the COV made it seem like he was going to leave Mayuri to die only for him to come back to get her.
- Et Tu, Brute?: Took the reveal of "Mayuri" being the Blackened hard after she pretended to be kind to him in the episode beforethen.
- Fragile Speedster: He's Fragile as a Butt-Monkey can be, but training with Michael Jackson (don't ask) granted him the ability to run at incredible speeds, to the point of being able to kill a T-Rex just by dashing through it.
- I'm a Humanitarian: Mentioned offhandedly in the Turbo Dismount series.
- In-Series Nickname: Nico gave him the nickname "Moshi" due to the limited characters in renaming Jeff.
- Last-Name Basis
- Off with His Head!: In the Turbo Dismount series.Morishige: It's just a head! Who needs a head?!
- Out of Focus: He doesn't show-up at all within the second episode of the Nonary Game arc.
- The Smart Guy: In the Horny Rangers series.
- Spear Counterpart: The Alphys voice came about as an attempt to do a female Morishige voice. Has an official version with "Mo-She-rige".
- They Killed Kenny Again: Many of the characters that Nico uses the Morishige voice on end up dying horrifically in-universe.
- Wrong Genre Savvy: In the Nonary Game, he stays behind on his own to raise as little death flags as possible.Morishige: It's alright. The guy who stays behind always survives in these kinds of situations, right? ...Wait a minute.
A rich guy. Assigned to pompous-looking, rich jackasses, and also the Silver Horny Ranger. He is one of the nine contestants in the Nonary Game, and his forbidden action is to be in the same room with dead bodies.
- Angrish: As Edgeworth. While Edgeworth does go briefly incoherent in game if flustered or startled, Nico likes to stretch "Nggh..!" into "Nyaaaghaghraaaghraaagh..!" for the joy of making "Edgeworth noises."
- Apocalypse How: Togami can apparently start the apocalypse just by driving a car off of some building and crashing into some things along the way.Togami: Rain down fire upon them all! Do it for me! For me, ahahaha! Go, my giblets!
- As Himself: Played with. While many of the other voices show up in other games as their namesake characters, this voice is usually called Edgeworth. The main exception is the Council of Voices, where it's still represented by Togami.
- Big Brother Is Watching: Claims he is "always watching" Nico.
- Break the Haughty: Snake did NOT take the news of his sister's death very well...
- Comedic Sociopath: Seems to delight in destroying everything around him, from bulldozing over cars in his own parking lot to using a wrecking ball to decimate cars on buildings.Togami: This is what money buys you. Fucking insanity.
- A Day in the Limelight: Takes the lead as Edgeworth in Ace Attorney Investigations.
- Disproportionate Retribution: Once had a pizza delivery man fired when the guy asked for a tip.Togami: What did he think I was, some kind of charity? Not to mention he was two minutes late with my pizza!
- Divergent Character Evolution: While the two most prominent characters this voice is used for, Byakuka Togami and Miles Edgeworth, started out having rather similar characterizations, Edgeworth underwent a major amount of character development in his games, and Nico's ad libs followed suit. While there are still similarities between the two, they have different enough personalities to be distinguishable from each other as independent characters who just happen to have the same voice.
- Everyone Has Standards: Even he's creeped out by Komaeda's enthusiasm at playing Russian Roulette.
- Evil Laugh: Fond of doing this.
- Hidden Depths: Claims to have spent countless study hours to become the new head of his family's corporation, despite accusations that his family name carried him to that position.
- Hidden Heart of Gold: Komaeda suggests that Togami saved his life not just because his forbidden action would make him do so. Togami predictably denies it, but not without hesitation.Komaeda: Maybe...there's hope for you yet...Togami...
- Innocent Innuendo: During Nico's play-through of Ace Attorney Investigations, Edgeworth constantly tells people (particularly Lang) that he will "finger" them.note Both Nico and Kay tell him he should find a different way to phrase that, but Edgeworth remains oblivious.
- I Work Alone: Has this mindset in the Nonary Game, being distrustful of the other Voices. This comes back to bite him, as his anti-social behavior makes him the prime suspect of Seven's murder.
- Jerkass Has a Point: In the fifth episode of Council of Voices, he points out that it is not wise to trust somebody in Zero's Deadly Game when somebody could be Zero himself. He also points out that despite how the participants are being members of the council of voices, they have absolutely nothing in common.
- Major Injury Underreaction: In the Turbo Dismount series, this happens a lot.
- Malicious Misnaming: Turbo Dismount reveals he calls somebody named Fred "Dick" constantly.
- Parking Problems: Extremely bad at parking in the Turbo Dismount series.
- Pet the Dog:
- Tried to warn Phoenix about Fujisaki being a guy, until Maya threatened to kill him.
- While he denies doing it for alturistic reasons, he opts to stay behind in the facility to help the others save Chiaki after being convinced by Komaeda.
- Rich Bitch: The Rich Bitch. So rich in fact that the Judge claims that him using Togami's credit card to repair the Council's building wouldn't make a dent in his fortune at all.
- Screw the Rules, I Have Money!: Does not know the meaning of the word "laws".
- Screw the Money, I Have Rules!: ONLY when this voice is applied to Miles Edgeworth, and ONLY after his character development.
- Shoot the Dog: He hacks Komaeda's arm off with a knife in the Nonary Game when it's the only way to save both of their lives.
- Sixth Ranger: Becomes a member of the Horny Rangers in the final season.
- Vocal Evolution: Went from a dignified, almost suave English voice until it got more expressive and slightly over-the-top.
- What the Hell, Hero?: Yells at the Judge for using his credit card.
An extremely Hot-Blooded voice used for the most extreme of characters.
- Bad Boss: To Apollo Justice in Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Dual Destinies and Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Spirit of Justice — mainly because Nico loves Butt-Monkey Apollo. He doesn't dislike Phoenix though, only that his character development has stopped.
- Catchphrase: Whenever Phoenix shakes or nods his head, he makes a "Blblblblbl" noise.
- "Edgeworth. My archnemesis."
- Alternatively, "Edgeworth. My gay lover."
- Mad Libs Catch Phrase: Whenever Phoenix presses a statement without really knowing why, he usually says "Hold it! What do you mean [completely obvious thing]?"
- Whenever a witness is about to testify, he gives a "Bring it on, [prosecutor or epithet relating to them]!"
- Whenever Maya shows up without any warning, expect Phoenix to chime in with a "MAYA, WHAT ARE YOU DOING HERE?!?"
- "Edgeworth. My archnemesis."
- A Day in the Limelight: Takes the lead in the Ace Attorney series.
- Nice Guy: Seems to be the most kind-hearted of the voices. Instead of proclaiming he is the best voice like everyone else is in episode one of the Council of Voices, he tells Togami and Joshua to shut up and let others have a chance to have a say in the matter. He also seemed to be genuinely scared and concerned for Komaeda when it looks like he'll kill himself in a six-bullet game of Russian Roulette.
Phoenix: Hey.Apollo: What?Nico!Phoenix: Suck a dick.
- His kindness towards Fujisaki when they have a date together at the Voicecoming dance also seems to be a testament of this, despite not knowing that Fujisaki's male.
- This gets played with during the Apollo Justice playthrough, where he plays the mild rudeness he developed up.
- Sixth Ranger: Repeatedly used for guest characters back in the Horny Rangers series.
- Took a Level in Jerkass: After Apollo Justice, he's noticeably more of a dick.
- Took a Level in Kindness: Starts easing up on Apollo in Spirit of Justice, showing he's mellowed a lot towards him.
Generally used for gangster-ish and badass characters and is also the Black Horny Ranger. He is one of the nine contestants in the Nonary Game, and his forbidden action is to hit another person.
- Back Stab: Found dead with a knife in the back.
- Bad "Bad Acting": Several times in Horny Rangers.
- The Big Guy: In the Horny Rangers.
- Big Guy Fatality Syndrome: Died first despite having experience in Nonary Games.
- Big "NO!": When he gets sent back to the Nonary Game.
- Catchphrase: "Man, this sucks". (If it's Kuzuryu then it's usually followed by "Just like bagels, bagels suck")
- Black Blood: Has Danganronpa-style pink blood as opposed to the red blood of the Zero Escape series
- Cool Guns: Uses one as the Black Horny Ranger. He switches to An Axe to Grind for the final season.
- A Day in the Limelight: This voice is used for the main characters of Persona 4, Persona 5, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and Fire Emblem: Three Houses. Although, it doesn't get used much outside of Nico's ad-libbing.
- Genre Savvy: Thanks to his experience in a previous Nonary Game, he finds one of the keycards under a plant.
- Hollywood Tone-Deaf: As demonstrated in episode 2 of Council of Voices.
- Killed Off for Real: Became the first victim of the Nonary Game via a stab from the back.
- No-Sell: After getting shocked once by Donald, he resists his other lightning attacks.
- Roundhouse Kick: Well, a "roadhouse" kick. Done as the Black Horny Ranger.
- Sociopathic Hero: As Joker. For example, he often shoots first, asks questions never and gleefully agrees with Sophia when she suggests murdering Alice.
- Tempting Fate: When he finds a keycard to escape the Nonary Game, he taunts Togami claiming that now he'll have to depend on him to escape. Soon he gets killed.
A female, southern-accented voice. Usually given to tomboys or young boys.
- Cross-Dressing Voices
- Does Not Like Spam: Considers bagels a "lie" (because they resemble doughnuts but don't have the sweetness).
- In the Council of Voices videos, she mainly serves to Lampshade when Nico does this.
- Last-Name Basis: Like most characters from Dangan Ronpa 1.
- Shameless Fanservice Girl: Has shades of this when used on females, such as asking the male lead if he wants to motorboat her. Averted with Donald making a comment about her breasts.
- Tomboy: Tomboyish characters usually end up with this voice.
- Trademark Favorite Food: Doughnuts, as in canon.
A douchier voice than even Togami. Usually comes with phenomenal cosmic power on top of the tremendous douche aura. He is one of the nine contestants in the Nonary Game, and his forbidden action is to touch any walls.
- Agent Peacock: Joshua is a flamboyant, rather petite-looking teenage boy and his snarky words aside may not seem like a threat just based on his appearance (not to mention that during his game he intentionally presents as much weaker than he actually is at first, causing both Neku and Nico to dismiss him as a weaker fighter,) but he is actually the powerful Composer entity of Shibuya and possesses godly powers he himself calls Jesus Powers as a result. Even without his powers, he gives Togami a mean punch and appears quite cunning and skilled at investigation during the Nonary Game.
- Break the Haughty: This voice is entertaining to see break down, although its namesake never does.
- In Ace Attorney Investigations 2, Sebastian is constantly on the verge of tears over some little slight, but when he actually gets pushed to the breaking point, it's not funny at all. He's treated to a serious Trauma Conga Line by his abusive father, starting with a "The Reason You Suck" Speech in public and ending with him Bound and Gagged in his own house. When it's over, he's so broken that he can barely function, and it's not Played for Laughs in the slightest. Edgeworth has to spend a lot of time convincing him that he's not worthless and getting him back on his feet.
- Brought Down to Normal: Can't use his cosmic Jesus Powers in the Nonary Game. It isn't even his forbidden action, something about the mysterious location jams it. This appears to be a result of how Joshua's powers actually work in his original canon: his powers become notably weaker if he is in a lower plane. The catch is that even Joshua does not know the location of the Nonary Game and can only theorize it's a place that technically shouldn't exist at all.
- Camp Gay: Joshua's mannerisms and his occasional comments referring to his interests aren't exactly subtle, and he also has a persistent thing for Neku whom he always refers to as Sally despite Neku's disapproval.
- Card-Carrying Villain/Eviler than Thou: Claims to be more of an asshole than Togami, who then claims Joshua is challenging him to a "douche-off".
- A Day in the Limelight: As Young Link in Ocarina of Time 3D.
- A Death in the Limelight: Gets a lot of focus in episode 6 (the second episode of the Nonary Game Arc) before he is poisoned.
- Deus ex Machina: Able to prevent everyone (except Morishige) from being hurt when Komaeda inadvertantly ends up crashing a meteor into the Council of Voices building.
- God in Human Form: Looks and acts like some douchy, snobby teenager, but is actually a powerful god-like being whose personality just happens to be like that. Nico keeps his voice and attitude exactly the same even when he is in his god form.
- He Knows Too Much: The reason Naia kills him, since he saw the picture showing the original council.
- In-Series Nickname: Calls everyone (especially Neku) "Sally".
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He spends most of his time making snarky remarks, but he does use his powers to help the other Council members when he feels like it (apparently not including Morishige,) until he no longer can during the Nonary Game. And though he won't say it out loud, he is later deeply affected by discovering Seven's corpse.
- Killed Off for Real: By the end of Episode 6, somebody makes him break his forbidden action.
- Broken Pedestal: Nico was really heartbroken when Ace was first fully revealed to be evil in 999.
- Catchphrase: He often said "Behold, my brilliance!" in Nico's playthrough of 999, whether or not it fit the context of the situation, which it usually didn't. Though it finally made sense when he managed to take Lotus hostage and says it one more time as he leaves the room with her in tow.
- Crack Ship: With the Security Chief.
- Early-Bird Cameo: Sort of. A deeper similar voice to Inga's variation of this voice is heard very briefly in Episode 20 of Justice For All for Matt Engarde before Nico opts to go back to the Komaeda voice.
- Evil Is Cool: In Virtue's Last Reward, he claims he is "awesome and evil at the same time", to which Nico agrees to.
- MayDecember Romance: With the Security Chief, as Ace is canonically 50 while Security Chief looks to be around her late-20's or mid-30's.
- Slap-Slap-Kiss: In this kind of relationship with the Security Chief.
One of Nico's old voices. Almost completely supplanted by the Maya voice.
Yaoi-Loving Goober (It's Missile!!)
The replacement for Slimey. Also the Pink Horny Ranger.
- The Chick: In the Horny Rangers and EarthBound series.
- Cross-Dressing Voices
- The Other Darrin: Inverted. In the first episode of the Council of Voices, this voice is represented by Missile. In the second episode, it was represented by Maya.
- Played straight with the dog in Ghost Trick having the same name and voice as the one in Ace Attorney. Justified, as "Missile" is the name of the pet dog of the creator of both games.
- Shipper on Deck: Always eager to see two men get together (except the Judge and Komaeda), whether knowingly or unknowingly.
- The Straight and Arrow Path: Uses a bow as the Pink Horny Ranger. Although she might take offense to the word "straight".
- Vocal Evolution: Started as a higher-pitched version of Slimey's voice. Nico, in his words, tunes down the ridiculousness of the voice to better fit Maya's more mature self in Spirit of Justice and in Episode 11, It's tuned down even more when Maya finally makes her grand return in the Plaza of Devotion. But it's been reverted back in Episode 13.
- Yaoi Fangirl: It's in the subtitle. She's even able to use her love for Yaoi to heal herself and others as the Pink Horny Ranger
A female, somewhat-monotone voice. She is one of the nine contestants in the Nonary Game, and her forbidden action is to leave the facility.
- Beware the Nice Ones: When Togami became the prime suspect for Seven's murder and his refusal to cooperate due to his snobbish attitude, she had zero problems when she ordered Joshua to knock him out.
- Catchphrase: Often begins her sentences with "hey, hey".
- Characterization Marches On: In the first couple episodes she served as a comic relief character, in her first appearance the joke about her was that she constantly slept through council meetings, and the two following episodes had her as Nico's love interest. After the Council of Voices started Growing the Beard, she assumed the role as the Only Sane Woman that solves the mysteries and tries to keep the group together, making her one of the few characters who's personality isn't too different from their canonical counterpart.
- Cross-Dressing Voices
- A Day in the Limelight: As the main character Jill in his VA-11 HALL-A streams.
- Heavy Sleeper: Sleeps through the entire first seen meeting of the Council of Voices, until November.
- Heroic Sacrifice: Threatens to leave the facility, which will kill her due to her Forbidden Action, if Naia doesn't let Morishige go.
- Last-Name Basis: Averted.
- The Leader: Seems to take this role among most of the other Nonary Game contestants.
- Official Couple: With Nico himself.
- Only Sane Woman: Plays this role among the voices during the Nonary Game.
- Sadistic Choice: Presented with one in episode 8: she can either leave the facility and get killed by her forbidden action or stay with Naia and Morishige for the rest of her life. However, she manages to turn this on its head by refusing to stay unless Naia lets Morishige leave, forcing Naia into a Sadistic Choice between revenge against Morishige and her "friendship" with Chiaki.
- Uncertain Doom: In Episode 7 of the COV, somebody manages to grab a hold on her. However, what happened to her after that remains unknown. Turns out that she was fine.
Council of Voices (Second Wave of Members)
These voices are members of the Council of Voices introduced in episode 2.
The loser voice. Used for the most pathetic of characters.
- Butt-Monkey: Yes.
- A Day in the Limelight: The Ultra Despair Hagakure Let's Read features Hagakure himself.
- Food as Bribe: Managed to get into the Council of Voices by bribing the Judge with turkey sandwiches.
- Police Are Useless: Seeing as most of the background police officers in Ace Attorney are portrayed as incompetent, its no wonder why they all end up getting this voice.
- Vocal Evolution: Started off as a chill, Jamaican accent. Ended up constantly-freaking-out.
- Vocal Dissonance: When Nico first heard Hiro's English voice actor in Ultra Despair Hagakure and while Tsumugi was cosplaying as him, he believes that it sounds nothing like the voice he gave him.
A voice used for goofy, female characters. Has a tendency to be assigned to maternal characters as well.
- Breaking the Fourth Wall: With Oliver and Donald Duck now as council members, he's openly worried about lawsuits from Studio Ghibli and Walt Disney.
- Catchphrase: "Ha...!"
- The Conscience: Godot occasionally pops up in a several series whenever Nico makes or has to make a questionable choice, even once berating Nico for his treatment of Chihiro's father, Taichi.
- Does Not Like Spam: Hates cream and sugar.
- Enemy Within: Nico's Nightmare is apparently Nico's inner crack-coffee fiend.
- Eye Beams: From his visor.
- Make an Example of Them: Upon getting in a fight with Ace over their roles as Silver Foxes, he uses his visor to shoot a laser at Phoenix.
- One-Way Visor: It fires Eye Beams.
- Real Men Take It Black: See Does Not Like Spam.
- Spirit Advisor: His spirit lives within Apollo's bracelet and enhances his perceiving ability by making him trip balls. He also teaches Apollo how to shoot Eye Beams, much to Klavier's chagrin.
- Trademark Favorite Food: Coffee, preferably with lots of crack in it.
A deep, southern-sounding voice.
The most perverted voice around.
A goofy, female voice. Similar to the Maya voice. ...Even in name. She seems to be one of the nine contestants in the Nonary Game. ...only for it to be revealed that Naia killed Mayuri and impersonated her throughout the game. Her forbidden action is to lie.
- Cloudcuckoolander: The main dividing feature of whether a character gets the Maya voice or the Mayuri voice is whether they come down on the Genki Girl side or the Cloudcuckoolander side. Though there is a lot of overlap.
- Chuunibyou: Not an example herself, but is shown to be good with this type of person.
- Dead All Along: The one who appeared in the nonary game is Naia disguised as her since Naia killed the real Mayuri.
- Don't Fear The Reaper: Nico interprets the Riverperson to be the Grim Reaper, as well as actually be Mayuri.
- Apparently, Mayuri died so many times, she took his job.
- Nice Girl: One of the nicest members in the COV as she is one of the few members to not insult Moshirige.
- Third-Person Person: Often refers to herself as "Mayushi." Naia uses this to her advantage, calling herself "Mayushi" when it would be a lie to say "I."
- Trademark Favourite Food: Bananas
- Walking Spoiler: It's impossible to talk about her within the nonary game without revealing that Naia Killed and Replaced her.
- You Are Better Than You Think You Are: Gave this type of speech to Moshirige. Well, Naia did.
The Original Chuunibyou
The Supreme Overlord of Ice, leader of the Four Dark Devas of Destruction. At least, that's what he'd like you to think.
- Chuunibyou: Yes.
- Dark Is Not Evil: Like in DR2, Gundam puts up an Evil Overlord act despite being a Friend to All Living Things.
- A Day in the Limelight: In the Steins;Gate LP.
- Heroic BSoD: When Mayuri is found dead.Gundam: I'll be right here... I'll be right here... I'll be right here... (eventually becoming nearly incomprehensible through his tears)
- Last-Name Basis: Zig-zagged. In his Steins;Gate LP, Nico refers to Gundham by his last name, Tanaka. However, the Council of Voices refers to him by his first name.
- Please Wake Up: His first reaction to seeing Mayuri's dead body is to close her eyes and say he'll wait for her to wake up.
- Spell My Name with an S: While Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair 's official English translation spells his name Gund'h'am, the Council of Voices spells it without the H, as in the original Japanese.
- Vocal Evolution: In the Steins;Gate series, Okabe's voice gets less hammy as reality starts to set in.
A rough, female contralto. Basically a female Kazuichi voice.
- Cross-Dressing Voices
- A Day in the Limelight: One of Nico's more minor voices. However, when Ultra Despair Girls and Steins;Gate were running concurrently, this voice got to appear in two LPs running at the same time. Few other voices had managed such a feat at the time.
- Last-Name Basis: Like all characters from Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havocnote . This is due to the fact that he was playing the fan translation, which used this for all its characters.
- Similarly, he uses the name "Genocider Shou" rather than "Genocide Jack" or "Genocide Jill", as the former is the one used in the fan translation of the first game.
- Rescued from the Scrappy Heap: Nico grew to like her more as Ultra Despair Girls went on.
- The Other Darrin: Averted. Regardless of whether Toko Fukawa or Genocider Shou is the active personality, Nico uses the same voice for them.
- Trademark Favorite Food: Fruit Roll-Ups as Genocider, which may explain her massive tongue.
- Yandere: Threatens Komaeda's life if the Judge doesn't find Togami.
Scrotal Punch!/The First Waifu
A stoic female voice. Used for cold or calculating female characters. Both the Security Guard and Kyoko are two separate members of the Council of Voices despite them having the same voice.
- Cross-Dressing Voices
- A Day in the Limelight: In the Night in the Woods livestreams.
- Groin Attack: Security Chief has her Scrotal Punch. It's a slight misnomer, however, as she doesn't punch you in the nuts. She rips them off.
- MayDecember Romance: The Security Chief with Ace (who's canonically 50).
- Only Sane Woman: Kirigiri fills this roll next to the rest of the group's detectives.
- Slap-Slap-Kiss: S.C. has this relationship with Ace.
- The Smurfette Principle: Kirigiri is the only female member in "The Badd Boyz".
- The Stoic: Fairly monotone.
A squeaky voice. Used for shy characters, male or female.
- Beware the Nice Ones: Elbow-dropped Hagakure during the voice-coming dance due to Godot spiking the drinks.
- Cross-Dressing Voices: Heh. Averted. Before Olga, all the characters that have gotten this voice have been biologically malenote .
- Dude Looks Like a Lady: Phoenix thinks he's female, even though Togami tried to warn him before Maya stepped in.
- Last-Name Basis
- Shrinking Violet
- Small Role, Big Impact: He may have a very small role in the nonary arc, but he made the tracking device that exposes Badd as the traitor.
Council of Voices (Additional Members)
These voices are members of the Council of Voices introduced in Episode 4 or later.
A bird voice used mostly to speak as Donald in Kingdom Hearts. He is one of the nine contestants in the Nonary Game, and his forbidden action is to use magic.
- Adaptational Jerkass: In the original cartoons and Kingdom Hearts series, Donald had always been relatively short-tempered, though Nico's playthroughs play his temper up and portraying him as a rude, loudmouthed, asshole that gleefully cheats on his girlfriend and only cares about himself. Even Donald himself lampshades his personality and points out that he's not nearly as big of an asshole as Nico portrays him.Donald: (to Sora) You know I'm not actually as big of an asshole as Nico's making me out to be, right?
- Allergic to Love: Donald absolutely hates all of the romantic scenes between Sora and a girl. In Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories, after Sora gives his heartfelt speech to Naminé, Donald comments that it was too much for him and vomits on the ground, and in Kingdom Hearts II, when Sora and Kairi reunite with each other, Donald is outright disgusted at seeing the two of them "make out".
- All Men Are Perverts: Is always lusting after most of the females that he meets, in addition to his canon love interest Daisy, there is also Queen Minnie, Aqua, Rapunzel, Honey Lemon, Asahina, and Chiaki that he is constantly being perverted towards.
- Bag of Spilling: He smoked a bunch of weed with Goofy at the beginning of Kingdom Hearts III and apparently reverted back to Level 1 by the time they reached Olympus.
- Brought Down to Normal: His forbidden action in Zero's Deadly Game turns him into this as he is forbidden to use magic.
- Butt-Monkey: Some of it is warranted, other times...not so much.
- Can't Hold His Liquor: In Re:coded, Goofy reveals that Donald got wasted with Jiminy Cricket and set his Kingdom Hearts outfit on fire in a drunken rage.
- Characterization Marches On: In Nico's playthrough of Kingdom Hearts, Donald was mostly just annoying and occasionally the butt of many of Nico's jokes. Come Kingdom Hearts II, Donald has a more foul, loud-mouthed, perverted, and a complete asshole that would continue in future playthroughs.
- "I got it!"
- "Aww fuck!"
- "What the balls?" or "What the ballsack?"
- Explain, Explain... Oh, Crap!: When Seven resists his multiple lightning strikes, Donald says he'll keep going as long as he has MP. He then finds he's out of MP and realizes how screwed he is.
- Expressive Mask: The pillars behind his seat show his HP and MP gauges as his emblem, and like in the games, the bars decrease the more physical punishment he takes and magic he uses.
- The Friend Nobody Likes: Pretty much no one likes him. In Nico's Kingdom Hearts playthroughs, he's constantly the butt of many jokes and insults from Nico/Sora (though some of them are deserving) and none of the Council of Voices members seem to have any respect for him as well, even the Judge was hoping that he wouldn't come to their meeting.
- Hidden Depths: Has a fondness for singing, especially Disney songs, as he wanted to sing Under the Sea and Let it Go, though Sora completely forbid him from singing because of his voice.Sora: (about singing in Atlantica) Last thing I wanna hear is Donald's nasally shit sounding voice.
- It Only Works Once: After using a thunder spell on Seven, Donald tries multiple times to shock him again to no avail, and eventually runs out of MP.
- It's All About Me: After Kingdom Hearts II, he spends most of Birth by Sleep, Re:coded, and Dream Drop Distance complaining about the fact that his role has decreased.
- Jack Bauer Interrogation Technique: The Judge has him shoot lightning at Seven to make him comply to the council's new super computer scanning his brain for memories.
- Jerkass with a Heart of Gold: Despite his rude and obnoxious behavior, he still has loyalty and respect to King Mickey and has at times show some decency to his fellow council members; at least compared to the likes of Togami and Monokuma.
- No Yay: Between the Judge and Komaeda, like with Maya.
- Out of Focus: He only shows up during the second episode of the Nonary Game Arc at the start of that episode and he doesn't appear again after that.
- Pet the Dog:
- Despite his deep hatred towards Sora (and pretty much everyone else), he still seems to have some respect towards Goofy and Mickey, in the Nonary Game he continues to show loyalty to Mickey (even though it's actually Monokuma).
- Whenever Axel dies in Kingdom Hearts II, he expresses anger towards this and wants to defeat Xemnas because he killed Quinton Flynn.
- In Episode 8 of the Council of Voices, he also decided to stick around in the Nonary Game faculty instead of leaving the faculty in order to help out Chiaki.
- Shock and Awe: Uses his lightning magic on Seven to make him comply to the super computer scanning his brain. Afterwards, when Seven threatens him for doing so, Donald tries multiple lightning strikes but to no avail.
- Sir Swears-a-Lot
- Sleeping with the Boss's Wife: In Nico's Dream Drop Distance playthrough, it's revealed that Donald has been having a secret affair with Queen Minnie Mouse due to his love of interspecies relationships.
- The Talk: Parodied when Sora meets Daisy for the first time in Kingdom Hearts II.Goofy: Well, uh...you see, when a duck and another duck love each other very much—Donald: They FUCK! The two ducks FUCK, Sora! Ahahaha!Sora: No! I didn't wanna learn this way!
- The Other Darrin: Discussed with the other council members when they point out he sounds nothing like the real Donald Duck.
- That Came Out Wrong: After commenting on Asahina's breasts, he offers to show her his magic staff that shoots out lightning (which is actually a real thing later used on Seven).Donald (after being whipped by Franziska for commenting on Asahina's "buns"): Okay, I can kinda see how that can be taken offensively.
- Thoroughly Mistaken Identity: Is convinced that Monokuma is King Mickey in disguise, referencing the fact that the Monokuma voice was a Mickey Mouse impression in the first place. Although Episode 7 suggests that he might not be entirely wrong...
- Took a Level in Kindness: Aside from being a huge pervert, he's noticeably nicer in the Council of Voices episodes. He is mostly harmless and still harbors respect towards King Mickey, a far cry from his rude and foulmouthed counterpart in Nico's Kingdom Hearts LPs.
- Worf Barrage: After getting hit once by Donald's lightning attack, Seven resists Donald's other lightning attacks used to defend himself.
- X Meets Y:[[Invoked.]] Described by Seven as "the mutant offspring of Maya and Fukawa".
A slightly deeper version of Nico's voice. Oliver's head in particular serves as the current council's HQ while Shuichi is a member of the Council of Voices' special unit who made a brief appearance in Episode 5. The latter eventually returned in Episode 8.
- A Day In The Lime Light: As 9S in NieR Automata, Oliver in Ni No Kuni, and Apollo Justice in Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney and Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney: Spirit of Justice.
- Butt-Monkey: As Apollo Justice, particularly when Phoenix Wright is around.
- Catchphrase: NEATO!! (as Oliver from Ni no Kuni) and I'M APOLLO JUSTICE AND I'M FINE!! (as, well...himself)
- The Cameo: Shuichi makes one in Episode 5, though he would've been alongside Kirigiri, Detective Badd, and Fulbright had he not been busy with detective work.
- The Comically Serious
- Early-Bird Cameo:
- Eye Beams: Apollo is capable of shooting laser beams from his eyes.
- Genius Loci: Oliver is the new building for the council after repairs. ....Somehow.
- Hearing Voices: Both Apollo and Oliver hear voices. Apollo hears Godot, and Oliver hears the entire Council of Voices.
- Heterosexual Life-Partners: Nico declares Ryuji as his "bro" a lot in his Persona 5 playthrough.
- Mind Screw: Oliver's sentience is apparently connected to the CoV HQ, and even feels pain when Morishige ran through the building's wall.
- Not so Above It All: Usually whenever Apollo shot out lasers or Oliver said NEATO!!.
- Only Sane Man: Easily one of the most down-to-earth of Nico's voices. At least, most of the time...
- Trauma Conga Line: Many characters given this voice go through some sort of trauma.
Council of Voices ("The Badd Boyz")
The council's group of investigators introduced during the Nonary Game Arc of the Council of Voices videos.See the "Council of Voices (Second Wave of Members)" and "Council of Voices (Additional Members)" folders for Kirigiri's and Shuichi's entries, respectively.
Tropes that pertain to the whole group:
- Freudian Trio: Badd (Ego), Kirigiri (Superego), and Fulbright (Id) fill this.
- Fulbright is The McCoy, being more passionate about JUSTICE than the rest of the group.
- Badd is The Kirk, having his own set of quirks like Fulbright, but still focused enough to take an assigned case seriously.
- Kirigiri is The Spock, being the most analytical of the bunch, usually giving logical deductions.
- Four-Temperament Ensemble: Badd is Sanguine, Kirigiri is Phlegmatic, Fulbright is Choleric, and Shuichi is Melancholic.
- Ham and Deadpan Duo: Fulbright acts as the Large Ham to Kirigiri's Straight Woman concerning deductions.
- Last-Name Basis: Excluding Shuichi.
- The Starscream: It's revealed that one of them is working together with villain of Nonary Game Arc
- Thememobile: The group seems to have their own specialized vehicle called the "Justicemobile". Fulbright calls to take it out at any opportunity, but Badd opposes this, describing it as "a motorized death trap".
- Two Guys and a Girl: Again, when Shuichi has too much "detective work" to show up.
- Xtreme Kool Letterz: Badd made the group's name himself, but to Kirigiri and Fulbright's chagrin (though for different reasons).
- You Have GOT to Be Kidding Me!: Fulbright, Badd, and Kirigiri all suffer Stunned Silence when hearing that the Judge left his supercomputer to be installed by a complete stranger.
- Berserk Button: In his case, DO take candy from the big scary man, lest he gives you a silent Death Glare.
- Broken Pedestal:
- Nico was really disappointed when he found out Badd was the third member of the Yatagarasu. Ultimately downplayed in that the Yatagarasu were originally a trio of modern-day Robin Hoods (Badd included), but he is still disappointed that Badd turned himself in for his crimes.
- Goes both ways during the Nonary Game. The others, especially Bobby, are disappointed that Badd is actually The Mole, while he seems to be motivated by losing his faith in Nico.
- The Bus Came Back: After being a one-shot voice from Investigations and its sequel, Badd returns as a member of the Council of Voices' special task force.
- Cold Ham: He has quite a few sequiturs, despite being The Stoic alongside Kirigiri, in contrast to Fulbright's Large Ham.
- Death Glare: Gave intentional and unintentional ones to Phoenix and Godot, respectively.
- Evil All Along: He turns out to be working with Zero during the Nonary Arc, though he's none too happy about it.
- The Heavy: Serves as this in the Nonary Game Arc to the characters who aren't the participants.
- Offhand Backhand: He defends himself from Godot's laser with his mirror without even looking...reflecting it towards Phoenix.
- Sweet Tooth: REALLY likes sucking lollipops.
A HEROIC VOICE OF JUSTICE!
- Art Shift: Similarly to Donald, he uses 2D hand-drawn recreations of his 3D model.
- Black-and-White Insanity: A very mild case; he initially refused to give help to find the missing Voices if any of them were "on the side of evil" until Gundam called him out on it.
- Beware the Silly Ones: Despite his cloudcuckoolander tendencies, he can put up a stoic face and defend himself from Badd's accusations and investigate the traitor himself.
- Broken Pedestal: Being the Big Bad of Dual Destinies will do that to you- especially to Nico, who mentioned that pre-reveal Fulbright was one of his favorite characters in the game. This is downplayed after the reveal that the real Bobby Fulbright was Killed and Replaced.
- Cloudcuckoolander: Makes ludicrous deductions, such as thinking the missing council members were ghosts when they seemed to vanish in the security feed.
- Everyone Has Standards: Even Fulbright was baffled by the Judge's decision not to keep an eye on the person installing his supercomputer.
- Large Ham: One of the hammiest of Nico's voices.
- Red Herring: In Episode 8, Badd tried to make everybody think that Fulbright is the phantom only for it to not be the case.
- Sheep in Sheep's Clothing: Although he briefly takes on the phantom's monotone voice, it's revealed he truly is the real Bobby Fulbright that was Killed and Replaced in Dual Destinies.
- Vocal Evolution: In the Dual Destinies LP, after being revealed as the phantom, Fulbright's voice becomes noticeably more monotone, reflecting his lack of emotion.
Nonary Game Organisers
- Arc Villain: The one for the ongoing arc centered around the Nonary Game.
- The Chessmaster: He and his unknown ally kidnapped everyone to play the Nonary Game, and if Kirigiri's right, then they've been plotting it since Judge had his new super computer installed WHILE being the one who installed the computer in the first place.
- Crazy-Prepared: He was able to eliminate all of Monokuma's spares and his factory to prevent him from escaping via the activation of another Monokuma unit. The isolated location was also able to completely negate Joshua's "Jesus powers".
- The Comically Serious: Zero's deadly serious attitude really hits home some of the early jokes in the episode.
- Greater-Scope Villain: Despite being the main antagonist of the current arc, he has little influence on the proceedings outside of messages and pre-recordings as far as we know. Although Togami theorized that one of the nine could be Zero himself (which isn't entirely unfounded, given Zero Escape's track record).
- Hidden Villain: Just like all of the previous incarnations, the location of this Zero is unknown, and their identity is left in the air until possibly later on in the arc.
- Inside Job: Kirgiri's deduced that Zero and one other pulled off the kidnapping, and it was later confirmed that Zero was working with someone who's a member of the Council themselves. Additionally, Zero had set up The Mole is inside the Nonary Game as the traitor who killed Seven, Joshua, and Monokuma.
- Knight of Cerebus: His appearance in the Council of Voices marks a drastic tone shift for the series.
- Out-of-Character Moment: Two of Zero's Game Over quotes for the "Slugger" game are this, hilariously.
- Zero: YOU GOT JUST MINDHACKED MOFOZero: IT WAS ME ZERO ALL ALONG
- Serious Mode: Much like Gavin before him, Stronghart gets a lot less ad-libbing and is voiced much more seriously as he shows his true colors.
A member of the original Council of Voices alongside Morishige, Slenderman, Mickey and Slimey. Replacing the deceased Mayuri, she participates in the Nonary Game and kills several of the other council members for revenge, specifically, towards Mickey (as Monokuma) and Morishige for forgetting her and reportedly betraying her in the past. Her Forbidden Action, as Mayuri, is to lie.
- Becoming the Mask:
- Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Naia tries to act friendly towards Morishige, when she is plotting his own death.
- The Bus Came Back: In the later years of Nico's channel, Naia fell into Pop-Culture Isolation due to the obscurity of Princess Princess and her voice was widely attributed to Mayuri. Fittingly enough, Naia returns to the spotlight via Killing and Replacing her "successor".
- Didn't See That Coming: Twice during the game:
- Naia wasn't told about the dart trap in the parking garage and ends up triggering it, leaving her vulnerable to the enclosing spike wall.
- Monokuma's was one of the only Forbidden Actions she didn't check, which leads to her getting caught in the blast of his bomb when he activates it to take her down with him. This ends up indicting her due to the burn mark on her leg and part of her dress, the latter of which is torn when she hastily runs back to where Morishige is.
- Didn't Think This Through: You'd think that out of everyone, she would check the Forbidden Actions of her intended targets, Monokuma and Morishige.
- The Dragon: She effectively serves as this to Zero, despite an apparent lack of trust in the other.
- Even Evil Has Loved Ones: Despite her actions, she does seem to care for Chiaki. While she takes it to some Yandere lengths by making her Forbidden Action leaving the facility so she'll be forced to stay with her after she kills Morishige, she does concede to let Morishige go when Chiaki threatens to leave anyway and kill herself.
- Exact Words: When Byakuya, Donald, and Chiaki began to suspect her of committing murders, she stated "Mayushi didn't kill anybody". Turns out that she wasn't Mayushi at all.
- Fair-Play Villain: Averted. Zero wanted the Nonary Game to be played properly, only allowing Naia to designate her own and Chiaki's Forbidden Actions. However, Naia blatantly goes against his desires, stealing the key for the Secret Passageways and checking everyone's Forbidden Action before they wake up.
- Fallen Heroine: She was one of the heroines of Princess Princess, but now she's hellbent on revenge against her former colleagues in the previous Council of Voices.
- Frame-Up: Attempts to frame Morishige for her killings by slipping Seven and Joshua's bracelets into his pocket while using him for support due to her leg.
- The Heavy: Is this along with Detective Badd and Miu Iruma, however, she is moreso this due to her role as the killer as well as being The Dragon to Zero despite neither one trusting each other.
- Hero Killer: Killed Seven, Joshua, Mickey(albeit as Monokuma), and was planning to kill Morishige.
- Kick the Dog: She taunts the other Council members about Mayuri's death by simply saying "she can't lie" when Chiaki begs her to tell them she's alright.
- Kill and Replace: Before the game began, Mayuri was killed and Naia took her place in the game, though it's unclear if she personally did the deed.
- Lack of Empathy: As she explained why she killed Seven and Joshua, she described the Council (the current one) as "the dirt on [her] shoe"; she simply doesn't care about any of them (aside from Chiaki and Morishige). It gets to the point that Komaeda is enraged when she tries a "Not So Different" Remark.
- Loophole Abuse: Her Forbidden Action dictates that she can't lie. However, she makes use of the real Mayuri's habit of Third-Person Person to claim that "Mayuri" didn't do anything, which is true since everything was Naia's doing.
- Nothing Personal: Aside from Monokuma and Morishige, she had nothing personal against the other participants, killing Seven simply so she could sew distrust and killing Joshua because he found the photo of the original Council.
Other Nonary Arc Characters
- Jump Scare: The end of his segment in Episode 8 ends with him screaming at Q (and by extension the viewers) while showing a Nightmare Face.
- Name's the Same: No relation to K (that we know of).
- Smart People Play Chess: Often plays chess with his visitor Q.
- Sanity Slippage: Introduced as a calm person in Episode 5, but as the series progressed, he becomes more wound up and unhinged. By the time Episode 8 comes along, he flipped the chessboard after a losing streak and screamed at Q to not come near him.
- Sore Loser: Ends up throwing the chessboard after a 7-game losing streak against Q.
- The Speechless: A variant: They do talk, but purely through Ace Attorney-style textboxes, unlike the rest of the cast.
- Used For: Miu Iruma (Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony), Junko Enoshima (NicoB's Bizarre Adventure), Betty de Famme (After being revealed to be Bonny's twin), Nahyuta Butterfly No. 3 (as herself) (Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Spirit of Justice), Armie Buff (Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Spirit of Justice), Tatl for an episode(The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask). Katsumi "Fubuki" Nakase (Steins;Gate)
A very loud and foul-mouthed female voice that doesn't mind being raunchy. She made an appearance in Episode 8 of the Council of Voices, though it is unknown if she shall end up as a member or not.
- Aggressive Submissive: Interchanges between her "irritating" persona and her "meek" persona, depending on if someone shouts at her.
- Early-Bird Cameo: Prior to being named, her voice was used for Junko during Nico's playthrough of the NicoB's Bizarre Adventure RPG.
- Casual Kink: Doesn't have a problem making sexual teases with everyone.

OtherThese are other voices by Nico that aren't in the Council, but are still very notable among the Picky Penguins.
Exactly What It Says on the Tin. This is the voice reserved for old men, typically NPCs and other minor characters.
- Ascended Extra: The Old Man from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild can be viewed as this, thanks to him tagging along throughout Link's adventure as a spirit.
- No Name Given: The old man voice has no real name or title, even though it's probably one of the older voices.
- Phrase Catcher: "SHUT UP, OLD MAN!!!"
- Screw Politeness, I'm a Senior!: Some of the more crankier characters with this voice act this way, whether it be with or without Nico's ad-libbing (usually with).
A male voice used for Hot-Blooded characters, but not as exaggerated as the Phoenix voice. Also the Red Horny Ranger.
- The Leader: As mentioned above, Sigma's the leader of the Horny Rangers.
- Theme Song: For Sigma, the Horny Rangers in general, and Hajime, it's a variation of the Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers theme, with more "horniness".
- The Other Darrin: An unintentional but justified version, with "Tenmyouji" being sixty-seven years old at the time of Virtue's Last Reward, and that Nico obviously wouldn't have recognized the Junpei he knew.
Female British voice, used for British-sounding girls.
- Clingy Jealous Girl: Mipha towards Link, especially in regards to Zelda.
- Early-Bird Cameo: Nico used a very similar voice for Alita Tiala back in Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney but apparently forgot about her when creating the voice for Judge Courtney.
- Proper Lady: Tends to sound cultured and refined, though sometimes Not so Above It All.
Basically a mix between the Hagakure and Joshua voices.
An incredibly sassy and snarky voice usually given to female protagonists. Whenever she's a voice, expect a lot of ad-libbed fun.

A subdued voice, generally used without any ad-libbing.
- Card-Carrying Villain: His tellnote freaked Nico out, and prompted the quote above.
- The Comically Serious: When asking Apollo about his Eye Beams, which to his chagrin ARE real.
- Funny enough, this is one of the few ad-libs Nico did as Kristoph after he was revealed to be a villain.
- Evil Feels Good: Nico enjoyed voicing Kristoph because of how evil, yet very subdued he was.
- Knight of Cerebus: By far the most serious Nico has got when he portrays characters.
- Serious Mode: Once Kristoph's true colors were revealed, Nico started to voice him more seriously and with less ad-libbing.
- The Stoic: Kristoph rarely ever raised his voice until his Villainous Breakdown.
- Papa Wolf: Every character who gets this voice ends up being this, be it in the main story or in sidequests
- Badass Baritone: He's very deep voice-wise.
- Call-Forward: In Investigation 2's flashback case, he outright says he'll shoot Gregory in an elevator.
- Distaff Counterpart: To his daughter, Franziska, to the point where Nico often calls this voice the "male von Karma" voice.

- The Perfectionist: To the point where he'd murder Edgeworth's father Gregory to keep his perfect record.
- A Day in the Limelight: In Judgment.
Korekiyo Shinguji (Kiyo)

- Got Me Doing It: Eventually gets into a laser fight with Apollo after the latter kept shooting out his own, using a modified version of Godot's visor.

A higher pitch version of the Shuichi voice.

From Virtue's Last Reward. Not to be confused with the Council of Voices character.
- Bowdlerise: Inverted, with Nico having still sweared while ad-libbing as K.

- Extreme Doormat: Whenever he receives any kind of verbal abuse (usually from Dio), he usually does his best to take it in stride. Even when Dio yells at the top of his lungs and it hurts K.
- K: Hey, excuse me, Dio, Dio could you please...please just be quiet? Cause I believe my ears are bleeding from the inside of this armor, yes... If you don't mind, you know. If you can, then, great! If you can't, then, no big deal.
- The Dog Bites Back: Whenever he gets an upper hand against Dio.
- Let Us Never Speak of This Again: Also inverted, with both Nico and K having enjoyed the latter using the Zero III-styled bunny ride, while Sigma and Alice tried to forget it ever happened.
