"So I'm totally right that love blooms in dire situations."

Made it to the survivor pool.

  • Ain't No Rule: The reason she does nearly everything is that it's not banned by the actual rules, just by common sense.
  • All Girls Want Bad Boys: Says straight-out that she has the bestest, baddest boyfriend.
  • Big Stupid Doodoohead: Aligula uses insults like these on the regular.
  • Cheery Pink: A gleeful weirdo with pink hair.
  • Cuckoosnarker: Aligula may have weird priorities, strange theories, and terrible morals, but just because her feet aren't exactly on the ground doesn't mean she can't or won't make a sharp comment when someone else gets the wrong idea.
  • Lack of Empathy: She grows out of showing apathy to death and people's trauma which nearly costs her reincarnation when she tells Ginti she'd rather stop feeling bad and go back to killing people.
  • Love Freak: Loves love stories, romance, and said they could petition the Adjudicator to turn his killing game into one where the person with the best lover could walk free.
  • Manchild: Aligula throws tantrums calling people stupid dumb-dumb meanieheads.
  • Older Than They Look: She looks like she's a teenager, going by her height, petite frame, and energy—but her profile says she's 1,549 years old exactly.
  • Phrase Catcher: "Aligula..." or baffled/horrified variations.
  • Shipper on Deck: She even starts the game off with a Soulmate Party, a matchmaking mingle event.
  • Vulgar Humor: Dirty jokes are her favourite thing.

Angel Hyperion

"I don't care if it's hopeless. I've dealt with hopeless."

One of the victims of Week 7 (Case 6).


"Doesn't matter what it is, it's got a weakness."

The culprit of Week 3 (Case 3).

  • Bling of War: Wears his Mega Anchor and Keystone around the facility, despite being unable to make Sharpedo Mega Evolve. It ends up being the only piece of evidence that directly implicates him during the third trial.
  • Do Not Go Gentle: Stabbed Juri with a poisoned knife during his execution, proving that there's one good way to hurt the man. Also spat his last breath in his face.
  • Fluffy Tamer: While they're not at all unusual by his world's standards, the other competitors find Archie's choices in Pokemon terrifying.
  • Meat Versus Veggies: Averted. He doesn't eat Pokémon, but he recognizes that others do, and he feeds fish to his Sharpedo.
  • Promoted to Playable: An Alternate Self of his appears in Round 2's backstory. Or, since they're both dead, maybe it's the same one.
  • Threatening Shark: Archie is the reason there was literally a shark in the vending machine. Luckily, Sharpedo is friendly.
  • Would Hit a Girl: The only person to actually accept Yang's request to punch her on the first day. He does stop to ask why she wants to be hit, but then decides that she knows what she's doing.

Aymeric de Borel

"The question now is thus: should we continue to play this game or should we do something more?"

One of the victims of Week 7 (Case 6).


"Appearance does not always prove accurate."

Willingly killed by the Adjudicator during Week 4.

  • The Giant: At 9 ft tall, he's heads above the second tallest person in the Facility. Subverted in that "war" is listed in his dislikes.
  • Long-Lived: His title is "Eternal," and he's a little over 3,000 years old.
  • No Social Skills: AZ is not great at conversation, even when he tries.
  • Who Wants to Live Forever?: Implied in his request for Juri to kill him.

Brady Russell

"Sometimes, people have a hard time saying what they really feel."

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

  • Amnesiac Dissonance: Brady and Mack have trouble reconciling their regained memories with their current selves and start to view the memories as belonging to some other timeline.
  • Gadgeteer Genius: Though he can't remember being an engineer or being recognized for things he invented.
  • Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: Even if it's probably bleach, that doesn't make the kindness he shows everyone any less genuine.
  • Nice Guy: Friendly with just about everyone and generally wanting to believe the best in people. When he died, it left multiple characters wondering who would even kill him.
  • Surfer Dude: He even talks Totally Radical at times.

Chitoge Kirisaki

"Sometimes, when I don't like option A or option B, I try to make my own option C."

Punished by the Adjudicator during Week 3.

  • Insecure Love Interest: Her reaction to Angel's real, reaching-the-intended-recipient Love Confession is to self-consciously babble about all the reasons she's not a good choice.
  • Lethal Chef: Brought some disgusting brownies to a party out of obligation and actually warned the others not to eat them. This was just a cover story, though: she wasn't really just that bad of a cook, but was trying to be a literal lethal chef by poisoning Juri.
  • Mafia Princess: It's given Chitoge a unique outlook, pragmatic but maybe too much of a risk-taker.
  • Multicoloured Hair: Blonde-to-pink gradient.
  • Sir Swears-a-Lot: When she's emotional, every other word out of her is an F-bomb.


"It's quite an impressive taste, really."

Made it to the survivor pool.

  • Rail Enthusiast: Loves trains almost as much as food.
  • Team Chef: Running a restaurant back home with his brothers has made him a very accomplished chef, and he will often cook delicious meals for his fellow Competitors.
  • Verbal Tic: Food metaphors every other sentence, with "taste" a synonym for "thing" or "concept."

Ferid Báthory

"I absolutely despise people who betray their friends."

One of the culprits of Week 7 (Case 6).

  • Afraid of Blood: Claimed to be this, but it turned out to be a cover story to hide his vampirism.
  • Long-Haired Pretty Boy: He plays it up, too, making Walter call him disgustingly flamboyant.
  • Monster Roommate: Ferid's a vampire, and he's staying with Inigo and Isaac. Neither of them knew.
  • Older Than They Look: He looks like he can't be more than twenty-five; in actuality, he's 2000 years old.
  • Rich Boredom: Being a noble, he falls into this at times, and he says his peers are incredibly dull.
  • The Tease: Constantly, and especially to Isaac, whom he loves to fluster.

Fern Green

"I promise I can handle any dark weirdness."

Made it to the survivor pool.

  • Alien Blood: Subverted. When she gets hurt by Walter's scalpel, she bleeds human, red blood.
  • Amazing Technicolor Population: She's green. By the end, even she still doesn't know why.
  • Berserk Button: Hearing too many insensitive questions about her greenness causes her to fly off the handle because it reminds her of her son's extremely green sickness.
  • Expendable Clone: Discussed. She suspects and accepts the possibility she's one due to round three's afterlife setting and the complicated nature of death in her canon.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Frequently offers her own life in the place of the younger crowd. She even throws herself in front of Walter's knife to protect Katniss.
  • Mama Bear: Immensely protective of children and whenever perceived threats to her son, Junior, are brought up, she becomes very aggressive — even to the point of punching Ferid, though he deserved it.
  • Perception Filter: Can't see her green skin or describe what color she normally has.
  • Repetitive Name: Both her first and last name evoke the colour green.
  • Team Mom: Blatantly becomes this.
    Chitoge: God you're such a mom, Fern.
  • Unfazed Everyman: Goes from being horrified by Chitoge's mafia background to barely raising an eyebrow hearing that Naoto danced to fight demons.


"It's easy to overlook the simple solutions because we expect them to be much more complicated, isn't it?"

Made it to the survivor pool.

Isaac McDougal

"Someitmes, you need to take matters into your own hands because there's no other way to handle them."

One of the culprits of Week 7 (Case 6).

  • Expository Hairstyle Change: After a memory regain, he leaves his hair down, wondering why he kept it up and long anyway.
  • No Accounting for Taste: Narration and commentary alike cite his abysmal taste in men.
  • No Social Skills: His narration often comments on how hard social situations are.
  • Tsundere: For Ferid, and it's obvious. Like when he tries to insist that offering his blood isn't romantic.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: Killed two people in the hopes of getting home to save his entire country.


"I still believe every one of the people here was capable of being good."

Made it to the survivor pool.

  • Buffy Speak: When she comes upon an unfamiliar concept or just something she's never had a word for. For example, calling her world a "goddess-archy" because she's not familiar with anything that isn't a theocracy, so she's never needed the word.
  • Friend to Bugs: And Bug-type Pokémon, even if Inigo's freaked out.
  • Good Is Not Dumb: There's plenty of other competitors who think she's naive. However, by the end, her views all turn out to be alarmingly on point, especially after the setting was revealed. She even points out that this game is set up to draw out the darkest parts of their souls, which was nearly quoting the Arbiters' canon reasoning behind the games verbatim.
  • Hitman with a Heart: She's an ex-assassin. It's the foundation of a lot of her views.
  • The McCoy: Her faith in people, and the fact that she considers emotions important to sound judgment, sparks many debates with the more cynical competitors.
  • The Pollyanna: The biggest optimist in the group, and it pays off for her.
  • Technical Pacifist: She'll only fight if she absolutely has to, which, at home, turned out to be often.

Katniss Everdeen

"I'm not that amazing. I'm just — surviving. That's all it is."

The victim of Week 8 (Case 7).

Kyouko Kirigiri

"If I don't hold everything together, then there's no chance at me getting out of here."

Made it to the survivor pool.

  • Colour Motif: Mack doesn't think Kyouko owns anything that's not purple.
  • Great Detective: She was accepted into Hope's Peak Academy as the "Super High School Level Detective".
  • In the Blood: Comes from a detective family.

Luca Valentino

"I... I don't do dating. Or romance in general."

Made it to the survivor pool.

  • Absurdly Youthful Mother: He is 27, his son is 6.
  • Arranged Marriage: He mentions that he and his wife are this during the party in week 1.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Cordial and easy to approach, but more than willing to prosecute even close friends to solve the murders.
  • Camp Gay: Luca is this, but also quiet and repressed, so his campy nature tends to shine more when he is talking in private rather than when he is with the whole group.
  • The Dandy: He cares very much about his appearance, so much so that he can frequently be found adjusting his clothes or fixing his hair.
  • Foreign Cuss Word: His are Italian.

Mahiru Hiiragi

"Oh, well, it isn't as if it hurts me in either case."

The culprit of Week 8 (Case 7).

  • The Cynic: During the first trial, Mahiru assumes the worst about Sayaka's actions before her murder. She ends up being right.
  • Missing Time: The nicer personality doesn't remember what the worse one does.
  • Superpowered Evil Side: Comes out during trials, even without powers, and at other times, too; the Norman clause had to be invoked again to execute her.
  • The Unfettered: The purpose of her Split Personality, who mentions that she comes out when Mahiru needs to do something where a pesky thing like a conscience would otherwise intervene.

Mallick Scott

"Yeah... Yeah, 'oh shit' pretty much sums it up, actually."

The culprit of Week 1 (Case 1).

  • Fatal Flaw: His impulsiveness leads him to accidentally kill Sayaka in self-defense.
  • Sir Swears-a-Lot: Tends to use profanity the way most people use commas, largely due to poor impulse control.
  • Stutter Stop: Mallick usually stammers terribly through even the most basic conversations, but the stammering stops when he's particularly fired up.
  • Wrong Genre Savvy: Treats this Deadly Game like the one he was in back home, assuming that it operates under the same rules. It doesn't. This turns tragic very fast in the first case.

McKenzie Mitchell

"This trial is already full of enough nonsense."

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

  • Amnesiac Dissonance: Brady and Mack have trouble reconciling their regained memories with their current selves and start to view the memories as belonging to some other timeline.
  • Skeptic No Longer: She starts out not believing in any of the weird supernatural things, but a few weeks in, she can't keep it up.
  • Tomboyish Name: "McKenzie" as well as her nickname, "Mack."


"I wonder if there's a way to move forward without anybody dying."

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

  • Cute Bruiser: As the youngest Competitor, many of the others flock to protect her like a little sister. Then she kills Yang with a frying pan.
  • Farm Girl: A sweet farmer in over her head who grows into heroism twice over.
  • I Just Want to Be Normal: Well, if the alternative is a murdercan, you can't blame her.
  • Wise Beyond Their Years: The speech she makes about peaches is so good, the other Competitors give her a slow clap for it.

Naoto Shirogane

"Logic and sanity have long abandoned us."

One of the victims of Week 7 (Case 6).

  • Alternate Self: She comes from the non-canon Naoto spinoff novel.
  • Great Detective: Although she harbors some insecurities about her occupation due to her age and gender, the other competitors assure her that they are lucky to have both her and Kyouko among them.
  • Important Haircut: Had one in order to fit her later canon appearances in with the Naoto spinoff novel. Later in the game, she says she regrets it.
  • Lady Looks Like a Dude: Robert can't tell the difference.
  • The Reliable One: Believes it's her responsibility to actually try and accomplish anything while the others just play around.


"Ah'm... a lancer, not a cortog— carto— map maker."

The victim of Week 2 (Case 2).

  • Instant Expert: While Nephenee was always very practised with time-consuming traditional sewing, upon her first encounter with the sewing machines, she started churning out multiple outfits a day.
  • Morality Pet: The whole cast takes her death hard and are far more happy executing Rideaux than they were with Mallick.
  • Never Bareheaded: Always in either a helmet or a hat.

Rideaux Zek Rugievit

"What a party this is. So glad I could be forcefully invited."

The culprit of Week 2 (Case 2).

  • Deadly Doctor: Uses scalpels as weapons when he pulls a Dio, taking all of them into the pit to try and kill Juri. Just like with Dio, it goes badly for him.
  • The Medic: The round's resident doctor and coroner, especially talented at figuring out how a victim died. This leaves the Competitors in a lurch when Rideaux gets executed.

Robert Baratheon

"I've got bloodlust to spare! Don't you worry about that."

Made it to the survivor pool.

  • Adipose Rex: He's a king and more than a little on the heavy side.
  • Brutal Honesty: If he dislikes someone, they'll know it, and so will everyone else.
  • The Chains of Commanding: He hated being a king and would rather have a simpler life.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: Even though he has some of the funniest antics in the game, he's also king for a reason. In particular, he gives a rousing speech during the final trial that successfully convinces others to vote for Walter White, who was executed weeks ago.
  • Dented Iron: Comments that he's not as fit as he used to be and he could have taken Juri in his prime.
  • Kavorka Man: He's not particularly attractive or very nice, but he talks about his long list of conquests back home.

Sayaka Maizono

"Honestly, I don't really even know if I inspired people as much as I wanted to."

The victim of Week 1 (Case 1).

  • Heel–Face Return: After she attempts to kill Mallick, the living Competitors tend to bring her up as an example of how you can't trust anybody. When she comes back from the dead side? She now believes that everyone should work together, and advocates for saving Mallick's soul.
  • His Story Repeats Itself: Once again picks an unexpectedly stronger target to kill, only to be killed herself.
  • Idol Singer: Recruited as the best of the best.

Walter White

"Oh, really. I wasn't aware that Juri was a person we should show any sort of manners towards."

The culprit of Week 4 (Case 4).

  • Jerkass: Hates pretty much everyone else in the lodge and makes rude comments regularly, even before he reveals himself to be a lot worse than they thought he was.
  • Stealth Pun: His title, which both describes him and contains the word "meth."

William Flemming

"Hope might not seem like it's important, but it's a powerful thing."

The victim of Week 3 (Case 3).

Yuri Lowell

"I'm just your normal everyday guy who gets into trouble sometimes."

One of the victims of Week 7 (Case 6).

  • The Leader: Seems to be this for the group. He maintains friendly relations with Juri despite making it clear to the other Competitors that their captor can go die in a fire, keeps the group organized, and proves that Sigrun's breaking the leader curse only extended to herself.
  • Promoted to Playable: Debuted in Round 2 as Zagi's hostage in the There Is Another motive.

Yuuki Terumi

"Better to destroy the system and start all over~"

Made it to the survivor pool.

  • Dual Wielding: Likes to do this with knives.
  • Evil Laugh: His cocky "keheheh."
  • Grumpy Bear: Has this sort of reputation because he always ditches parties.
  • Handwraps of Awesome: Wears bandages because he thinks it looks cool.
  • Malicious Misnaming: Terumi gives everyone insulting nicknames.
  • Mundane Utility: His wraps, usually a fashion statement, can be used as real bandages.
  • Real Men Hate Sugar: Lists "sweet things" under his dislikes.
  • Refuge in Audacity: He successfully argued to save his own soul by saying he really was the hero all along, not because any of it was true, but because Ginti/Juri couldn't believe he had the nerve to say it.
  • Token Evil Teammate: He is not a nice person and greatly enjoys things like violence and killing, but he still makes it to the survivor pool despite all that.

    The Adjudicator & Others 


"I'm the Adjudicator. Guess it's nice to meet you."

  • Affably Evil: Very casual, even awkward at times, despite running a murder game.
  • Affectionate Nickname: Called "Adjudicutie" by both Aligula and Ferid.
  • Ambiguously Human: Despite looking human, he doesn't bleed, he routinely takes souls for punishment and can move unnaturally fast.
  • Black-and-White Morality: You're good or bad as far as he's concerned, usually bad. Given that he exists to judge the souls of the dead, he thinks this is justified.
  • Celebrity Impersonator: Ginti's "Juri" persona was based on Harada, an Idol Singer Ginti had judged in the past, whose last wish was to put on one more show.
  • Did We Just Have Tea with Cthulhu?: The Competitors are able to meet with him in person for private conversations, some of which are apparently on the very affable side.
  • Everyone Loves Blondes: There has to be some reason that some of his captives are becoming his fanclub.
  • Evil Redhead: How he appears when he removes his disguise.
  • Fanboy: Not really, but when it was announced that the weekend of Otakon would have no murders because the mods would be attending, jokes were made that Juri would be going to Otakon, picking up merchandise of his favourite Competitors.
  • Gender-Blender Name: Juri is usually a woman's name. It isn't his real one, though.
  • Punch-Clock Villain: The Competitors end up viewing him as this, since he can get along with them all and he makes no secret of the fact that he answers to someone else.
  • Punny Name: "Jury," as in what he has the survivors become every time one of them dies.
  • Slasher Smile: He's described as looking "aggressively manic" when he kills someone.


"I am the only watcher."


"I don't know what's going on, I just feel like maybe I'm not supposed to be here."


How well does it match the trope?
