A girl who cannot remember anything except for the word Sora. Having forgotten her name, talent, and past, she participates in Hopes Peak Academys school trip. Perhaps due to her desire to find her memories, she is a very curious girl with a somewhat blunt way of speaking.

- Amnesiac Hero: She's the only one among the students who forgot her talent and identity.

- Deadpan Snarker: She has a tendency to leave snarky remarks based on the antics of the day.Sora: Good morning everyone. What's this mess about?
- Expy: Of Hajime Hinata. Along with being the protagonist of a sequel, Sora is also introduced with having no memory of her talent and being just as cynical, maybe even moreso, when interacting with her classmates.
- Idiot Hair: Designates her status as the main character.
- The Protagonist
- Red Oni, Blue Oni: The stoic blue to Yoruko's expressive red.
- Sailor Fuku: Wears a black, red, and white one.
- The Stoic: Is generally not an expressive person, and even when she does show emotion, it's very subdued.

A genius recognized by the scientific community in the United States for her groundbreaking research and papers. Being an expert on human emotions, she was scouted to Hopes Peak as the Ultimate Psychologist. Due to her advanced insight into human vital signs and thought patterns, she can predict the behaviour of others and essentially read their minds. However, this insight causes her to have problems socializing, as her ability to predict what people will say causes her to alienate herself. Despite her expertise in human emotion, her own emotional responses are, ironically, subdued.
She is the second victim of the Killing Game, being locked in a freezer until freezing to death.
- Awesome by Analysis: Comes with her talent. She is able to identify all four remaining Void members by the SECOND CHAPTER.

- Iconic Item: She's never seen without her tablet.
- Ironic Name: Her first name is Japanese for 'heart' which is ironic considering how emotionless and subdued her personality is. Subverted in Chapter 2 where she reaches out to Emma, a Void member, in an act of friendship.
- I Work Alone: In Chapter 2, she decides to cut ties with the group knowing that her constantly helping them will eventually result in her murder by the hands of Void.
- Meaningful Name: Kokoro's first name means "heart" or "mind". Her surname's pronunciation likely refers to the phrase mitsumeru meaning "to gaze at something", so when combined with her first name, her name can be read as "gazing at someone's mind", which fits with her talent as the Super High School Level Psychologist.
- Nice Shoes: She wears blue slippers modeled after cute puppies.
- Not So Stoic: When she announces that she'll no longer be helping the group in discovering the hidden Void members, Sora can tell that she's actually scared for her own life.

- The Smart Girl: Her talent is psychology and she becomes a crucial member of the cast as she's able to identify early on who the culprit of the first case was based on subtle behaviors they expressed.
- Smart People Wear Glasses
- Too Powerful to Live: In addition to figuring out who the culprit of the first case was early on, she is also able to identify Emma as a member of Void and she claims to have a pretty good idea of who the other two unknown members are as well. This leads to her death when she confronts Emma and tries to convince her to switch sides, only to end up angering Emma by discovering and bringing up something about Emma's past, which leads to Emma knocking her out and later killing her.
- Who Wears Short Shorts?: She wears black shorts which are covered by her sweater.

- A-Cup Angst: Minor, but she expresses envy at Kanade's chest when carrying her back from the party in Chapter 1.
- Book Dumb: Openly declares that she isn't as great in the academic fields. It doesn't bother her however since she claims she can rely on her painting talent to get by in life.

While Yoruko and Sora are expressing embarrassment or irritation with being trapped in the men's bathhouse, Iroha takes it a little too well.Iroha: Ahh, but I have already seen it all. Shinji, you have met my expectations... Yuki, I had no idea you—Yomiuri: Get outta here! You perverts!

A young man of Russian and Japanese parentage, he is the only son of the prestigious Kagarin family. Groomed from an early age to inherit the powerhouse of the astrological industry, he practiced his talent as a child by riding an escalator. In a few years he will become an astronaut, though he does not seem to be particularly interested in that. Having been treated like the prince of the Kagarin family for all of his life, he has experienced little of the world and faced very few adversities. He is chivalrous and generous towards women, (though he hates men,) but his devotion to women typically crosses over into the extreme, and as a result he is often seen as a pervert.
He is the first victim of the Killing Game, dragged up the inside of a bell tower rigged with wires, by a meat hook stabbed into his leg, and then dropped back down.
- But Not Too Foreign: He has Russian ancestry but his design is similar to the other guys who are fully Japanese.

A young man who dresses like a stage magician and dons a bizarre mask. He came to Hopes Peak as the Ultimate Wizard, but no one has seen him perform magic to verify that claim. He never speaks, regardless of whats going on around him, and, thanks to his mask, its impossible for anyone to get a read on him.

- Token Evil Teammate: In Chapter 4, Yukei reveals that Void was never a terrorist group like it's reputation makes it out to be. It only became that way when Mikado took over as leader and instilled a new agenda of evil for the others to follow.
- Troll: He likes to mess around with the others when given the opportunity. He also seems to make Teruya a frequent target as of Chapter 2.
