Ashley Williams

Discerning

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/3sjjy49.png
"I'm glad even in all this... at least something good came out of it."

The victim of Week 3 (Case 3).


  • The Heart: Ashley is the one nearly everyone wanted to protect, who symbolizes how broken they all are but how they still have something keeping them together. Fittingly, her death and the ensuing trial drive a huge wedge in the group. She fills the heart role again for the deadland Cast Herd.
  • Popcultural Osmosis Failure: After her death, she attempts to tell the survivors that the Conductor looks a little like Benedict Cumberbatch. No one left alive knows who he is, leading to people briefly assuming that was his real name.
  • Protectorate: Multiple people swear that they'll at least get innocent, likeable Ashley out of Graceside. Sadly, she still doesn't make it, and this takes a toll on everyone.
  • Shipper on Deck: Plots and encourages support for every couple in the game. The "fiery throes speech" she gives Morty is something to behold.

Asuka Langley Shikinami

Contrary

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ceetmat.jpg
"I never said I was a nice, trustworthy person."

The culprit of Week 3 (Case 3).


  • Broken Bird: Asuka doesn't believe in trust or feelings, because they've only ever let her down.
  • Foreign Cuss Word: Half the German she uses in the school.
  • Iconic Item: The hat Ashley gave her becomes this in probably the most tragic way possible.
  • Not Growing Up Sucks: Asuka stopped aging at 14 and may not even be human anymore due to a "curse." She complains about it a lot.
  • Older Than They Look: She's 28 and hasn't aged since 14.
  • Shell-Shocked Veteran: Asuka's in a hopeless war to keep the world alive just a little longer, and she's stopped pretending there's hope of anything more.
  • The Teetotaler: She's well aware of the "drunk German" stereotype, but doesn't drink since she's stuck in the body of a middle-schooler and, more importantly, wants to have complete control over herself at all times. She does eventually try it and immediately decides that beer is disgusting and overrated.
  • Tsundere: Doesn't want to admit that she may be growing feelings for people, and she's terrified of what may happen if she does. So she decides to kill her closest friend to escape to try and convince herself that she doesn't care.

Blue

Evolutionary

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/cns7nm5.png
"Better to be scared with company than afraid and alone."

Made it to the survivor pool.


  • All Girls Want Bad Boys: Her taste is a little suspect.
    "What is it about being totally morally bankrupt that makes people attractive?"
  • Because You Were Nice to Me: Unexpected kindness has this effect on her.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: Has shades of this. Especially when the others learn that she uses Ditty as a bra.
  • Guile Hero: Tries to be, making sure to get on the Conductor's good side and those of her classmates.
  • Little Miss Con Artist: Blue was one of these as a child. No wonder she went into becoming a mole by trying to be a Friendly Enemy to the Conductor and get something out of it.
  • The Mole: One of the three who's named as a mole suspect. It's all three of them.
  • The Nicknamer: All of Blue's Pokémon have cutesy nicknames. She doesn't give any to humans, though.
  • Rummage Sale Reject: Her gleefully wearing tacky patterns and mismatched colours is commented on by everyone.

Byakuren Hijiri

Unbreakable

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/7jsjggr.png
"Would you like a comforting answer or a truthful answer?"

The victim of Week 2 (Case 2).


  • Bare-Fisted Monk: Byakuren is a religious figure and a competent fighter who gladly accepts Undyne's duel challenge.
  • Silk Hiding Steel: Sweet, feminine, peaceful... and more than willing to fight if she needs to.
  • Statuesque Stunner: Byakuren is the tallest of the female cast and very cute.
  • Team Chef: Makes food for those who can't or just for everyone. Once she dies, a lot of people have to suddenly learn to cook.

Cabanela

Ardent

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/upk1uvj.png
"I believe in all of you. You will stop him."

The culprit of Week 7 (Case 7).


  • Bunny-Ears Lawyer: Despite being somewhat ridiculous, he is an excellent detective.
  • Last-Name Basis: Even according to the profiles, though the ending narration calls him George.
  • Lead Police Detective: His experience back home proves invaluable in Graceside.
  • Man in White: Always wears a pure white trenchcoat. Its absence is what clues everyone in to his role in Sukuyo's death.
  • Survivor Guilt: Cabanela has a complex about not being able to save anyone else. Being in a place like this does not help.
  • Verbal Tic: Stretching out vowels in words he wants to emphasize.
  • You Can't Go Home Again: Not because he's changed, but because his world has and he's afraid to see just how much.

Chie Hori

Informative

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/kmilosk.png
"The weak bow down and the strong devour them; my friend told me that once."

The culprit of Week 4 (Case 4).


  • Camera Fiend: If Chie has a camera available to her, she takes it everywhere. This proves useful when she takes crime scene photos with a cheap instant-print model from the prize machine.
  • The Hedonist: Described as such. She wants to die without regrets, so she'll do whatever she thinks might be fun at the time, without regard for common sense or personal safety.
  • Older Than They Look: Unlike with Asuka, there doesn't seem to be a reason she looks like a middle schooler.
  • Spooky Photographs: Takes a picture of the shadow, which harms it.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Parfaits, the more extravagant the better. Her ghost leaves some out for her friends.

Dio Brando

Abiding

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/iclmbgp.png
"When the victors speak of what's transpired, 'evil' is just the name given to the one who loses."

The culprit of Week 5 (Case 5).


  • Heroic Build: Played with. He's buff and evil, but his body was stolen from The Hero back home, so...
  • Immortal Immaturity: He's not above being a troll.
  • Knife Nut: His "habits" get everyone's knife privileges revoked.
  • Morality Pet: Sukuyo becomes this for him, thanks to her reminding him of his saintly, deceased mother.
  • No Badass to His Valet: Rightly intimidates everyone with his power, skill, and brutality, except for Sukuyo, who views him on the level of a harmless child.
  • Smug Smiler: Dio's most common expression is a smirk that you just know means he thinks he's better than you.

Elise

Gilded

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/lig9zlh.png
"I've got enough confidence for a legion. O~hohohohohohoho!"

Made it to the survivor pool.


  • Break the Haughty: The entire game is this to her, where she goes from stuck up and pretending she isn't worried down past the Despair Event Horizon and planning to betray the entire group, then having regrets and reaching out to the others.
  • Hair Decorations: Elise usually wears pink bows.
  • Inferiority Superiority Complex: Develops one of these from her breakdown at Ashley's murder, trying to reconcile her spoiled selfishness with a situation that's wearing at her from every side. Comes to a head when her remaining favourite people die and she watches Rick kill himself after confessing to killing them; when she says he should have targeted someone who deserved it, she's actually referring to herself, overcome with guilt at being a mole.
  • Lethal Chef: At first, though she regains the memory of learning to cook later on.
  • The Mole: One of the three who's named as a mole suspect. It's all three of them.
  • Noblewoman's Laugh: She's often prone to an "O~hohohohohohoho!" or two.
  • Older Than They Look: Not intentional like Asuka or Chie, but Sukuyo assumes that Elise is a teenager and Blue treats her like a peer. Elise is old enough to drink.
  • Pet the Dog: Showing kindness to the chickens and (re)learning how to care for them. The scheduling board that mysteriously appeared to help with the chicken care was one of her mole rewards.
  • Pink Means Feminine: Elise is utterly girly and wears a pink gown and ribbons.
  • Rich in Dollars, Poor in Sense: She honestly has no clue what average life is like, giving her Skewed Priorities like selling out the others because she can't stand the beds in Graceside and wants a nicer one. Elise gets better as she regains memories of deciding to learn to do work herself, but still needs to be reminded that the "shacks" most people live in are regular houses.
  • White Magician Girl: Takes this role in the back of the formation when the confrontation with the Conductor turns physical. She even sewed potions into her underskirt!

Giovanni

Geotic

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/76i1453.png
"Maybe under different circumstances, you wouldn't have made so many bad decisions."

Made it to the survivor pool.


  • Affably Evil: Giovanni is a mobster and has hurt a lot of people in his life, but he's a friendly person willing to cut deals, is good to his subordinates, and has joined forces with heroes multiple times when the world's at stake, which Blue happily tells everyone.
  • Benevolent Boss: He may be a mob boss, but he doesn't believe in treating his followers poorly, equating it with cutting your leg off.
  • Bunny-Ears Lawyer: A jovial man who plays with children's toys and wears mascot suits, but still a scarily competent mob boss.
  • Collector of the Strange: Giovanni hoards blood samples from the crime scenes.
  • The Family for the Whole Family: Overall, he's a lot more amenable than mobsters from the less child-friendly represented canons.
  • Friend to Bugs: Giovanni's signature Pokémon is a Beedrill, who gained the nickname "Beedwagon." They're very close.
  • Knight Templar Parent: When Round 2's backstory was revealed, it was often commented that it was a good thing Giovanni wasn't in that round, or Mettaton would be dead thrice over for deleting Silver's consciousness, depths of despair or not.
  • Oh My Gods!: Often invokes legendaries when frustrated. Apparently, "Giratina's waterfalls" is a potent curse.
  • The Only One I Trust: Giovanni is basically this to Susan by the end, since the rest of the survivors are either traumatized and unstable teenagers or Elise. Susan disapproves of Giovanni's mob activities and blood collection, but believes he can get the job done.

Hibiki Ganaha

Vivacious

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/gngvspt.png
"Nankurunaisa! Whenever I say it, i know we've still got a fightin' chance!"

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


  • Black and White Morality: It takes her a long time to grow out of it, even with the others telling her it's not as simple as judging those who hurt others.
  • Book Dumb: Hibiki is good with emotions, athletic, and talented at keeping animals, but if a trial goes into something like chemistry or physics, she's lost.
  • Can't Get Away with Nuthin': Her mistrust of others after three weeks of terrible murders comes to a head during the fourth trial, where she chooses not to immediately come forth with evidence she had found while investigating. Many of the characters rail against her, and some still hadn't completely forgiven her by the time of her death, two weeks later.
  • Catchphrase: "Nankurunaisa," left untranslated.
  • Friend to All Living Things: The chickens love her right away and she's very close to all kinds of animals at home.
  • The Idealist: Believes in people a lot more than those around her do. It becomes a conscious decision after her mistakes in week four.
  • Idol Singer: Hibiki begins as an aspiring idol, then slowly remembers that she became a big success. Some of her merchandise is in the prize machine.
  • Speaks Fluent Animal: And does, to the chickens.
  • Tomboyish Ponytail: It works with her image as a carefree country idol.

Jean Kirstein

Ascendant

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/q4kxeqv.png
"Guessing how desperate or selfish someone might be is a lot easier than guessing how smart they might be, though."

Made it to the survivor pool.


  • Child Soldiers: Jean is one, due to the dire state of his world. It alarms most of the others.
  • The Cynic: Throughout all of Round 1. The one time he tries optimism and pushes for everyone to spare Kimblee in the final trial, he almost dies.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Almost all the time.
    "I don't know about you, but if I was gonna plan a murder and arrange it to look like a suicide, I'd pee beforehand."
  • Kid Hero: Survives to be a member of the so-called "Teen Asshole Squad".
  • Never Speak Ill of the Dead: He even lights a funeral pyre for the mastermind who put them through all this at the end.

Katsuki Bakugou

Volatile

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/awaemun.png
"I mean, when we all stop being able to feel alright at all, then we basically already gave up on trying to find something better."

Made it to the survivor pool.


  • Hot-Blooded: Constantly getting into fights and otherwise being obnoxious and loud.
  • I Call It "Vera": Gets one of Logan's warhammers out of the prize machine and names it "The Smashing Warlord of the Apocalypse."
  • Kid Hero: Survives to be a member of the so-called "Teen Asshole Squad".
  • Last-Name Basis: Basically nobody calls him Katsuki.
  • Parting Words Regret:
    • Had a terrible fight with Youko; just as he was ready to make peace, she died.
    • Averted with Hibiki - they have a nasty fight, but successfully make amends before Hibiki is murdered.
  • Shonen Hair: Spiky blond hair for a Hot-Blooded hero.
  • Sir Swears-a-Lot: Has one of the dirtiest mouths among the cast.

Ken Kaneki

Acquiescent

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/woubszy.png
"I'm not sure if there are many choices here that are right, anyway."

The victim of Week 1 (Case 1).


  • Alternate Self: With no indication that Trustfell runs on jamjar time and him being further into the past from Chie, she deduces that Kaneki must be this; his world can't be the same as hers, since it would have gone way Off the Rails without him.
  • Badass Bookworm: Loves to read and talk about the classics, but much more powerful than he appears, even if he's the first victim.
  • Bookworm: He practically lives in the library.
  • Freakiness Shame: Though, really, if you were a flesh-eating monster, you'd want to hide it too.
  • Half-Human Hybrid: Tells Ashley that he was turned into this by an organ transplant gone very wrong.
  • I Do Not Drink Wine: He has to invent excuses for subsisting on coffee until the truth comes out that he can only eat human.
  • Non-Malicious Monster: The nicest guy you'll ever meet, even if he has to eat people to live.

Logan

Sovereign

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/r2xrynl.png
"At this point, I'm wondering if logic even has a place here."

Killed by the shadow during Week 6.


  • Fascist, but Inefficient: Logan ends up describing his own rule as this himself once he regains all his memories in deadland and realizes that his sister accomplished his goal without becoming a tyrant.
  • The Leader: Quickly becomes this for the group, despite Rick's objections. Everyone just ignores his apparent fondness for executions.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: Experiences this when Reaver is executed, thanks to his (large) part in revealing him as the first culprit - and because of what will happen to Albion without his industry expertise.
  • Platonic Life-Partners: Becomes this with Youko, even sharing a bedroom with her.
  • World of Pun: Hails from this. Consequently loathes them because of this, or so Logan tries to claim. Puns are the lowest form of humour and he is a king.

Luna

Counterbalanced

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/1xxuvmv.png
"I can't even imagine what it'd be like to be here without Sol."

The victim of Week 4 (Case 4).


Marty McFly

Temporal

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/eutthus.png
"It's never bad to hold back your feelings, right?"

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


  • And a Diet Coke: Marty likes unhealthy food, but opts for sugar-free cola. However, this isn't to lose weight, it's just because it's popular in his home time.
  • Berserk Button: Being called a chicken. He even takes offence at the appearance of the actual chickens.
  • Dork Knight: Heroic, fanboy, completely out of his element and ends up an Action Survivor. For as long as he survives, anyway.
  • Fanboy: He marks out over Dio's name because he recognizes the musicians he's named for.
  • Unlucky Everydude: Anything fantastical he's crossed paths with is something he's stumbled into, and he's definitely not prepared for murderschool.

Mordecai Benmont Jiminy

Universal

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/8y9bijc.png
"And fate's most definitely what brought us here. That and awful luck."

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


  • Full-Name Basis: He addresses people like this a few times, e.g. with Cabanela when he stops calling him "Inspector" instead.
  • Happily Married: He will gladly tell you how much he loves his wife back home. This comes up during the sixth trial as the other characters debate whether he wrote the incriminating letter or if he was being framed.
  • Hypocrite: Mordecai trusts no one, which would make him Properly Paranoid in a place like this, but expects them all to trust him. For example, if he sees someone get a weapon out of the prize machine, he'll freak out that something terrible will obviously happen, demand that they give it to him where it'll be safe because obviously he won't use it and they still might, and get upset and offended when they say no.
  • Nervous Wreck: Mordecai works himself into a panic whenever anything bad happens, from understandable things like murder to motives and weapons, which immediately make him assume the worst-case scenario.
  • Shipper on Deck: Kept a shipping chart during the course of the game, and set up a date between Cabanela and Giovanni during the fourth week. He even wrote fanfiction for some of the adult pairings.
  • Talking the Monster to Death: Attempts this on the shadow creature and Roy Mustang immediately after waking up as a ghost. It doesn't work.

Morty Smith

Tempered

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/uqgclqu.png
"Aw, jeez... you know — n-never mind."

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


  • Morality Chain: Is the only thing keeping Rick from killing the others immediately. Things go poorly after his death.
  • Nervous Wreck: He's usually stammering, afraid, and wondering what he did to deserve this.
  • Older Than They Look: This kid's in high school?

Rakka

Unerasable

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/w66snlv.jpg
"If we didn't have to do this terrible exercise... this place could be really nice."

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


  • Amnesiacs Are Innocent: A double serving of this, being an amnesiac in canon and also waking up without her new memories at the start of the game.
  • Blank Slate: Can't even remember her own name.
  • Holy Halo: Rakka may not be a real angel, but she still has one of these.

Reaver

Relentless

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ypadg5b.png
"Maybe I'm not that altruistic."

The culprit of Week 1 (Case 1).


  • Really 700 Years Old: Well, 225.
  • Sadistic Choice: Reaver made no secret of the fact when it came time to vote him off that if he died, Albion's six million residents would perish without his skillset. The characters' only other option is dying themselves, and Reaver is convicted.

Rick Sanchez

Enduring

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/vziqx2m.png
"Why the fuck would I want any of you to like me."

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


  • The Alcoholic: Rick is never sober, even before the bar opens up, possibly through sheer willpower. Or alcohol buildup running through his bloodstream.
  • Badass Grandpa: A 60-year-old drunk noodle who can still swing around a large warhammer.
  • Bigger Is Better in Bed: He proudly tells everyone he's this, which grosses out the entire room.
  • Death Seeker: A large part of why he kills a couple cinnamon rolls and tries to go out in a blaze of glory before just dying there on the stand.
  • Didn't Think This Through: Wrote a Forged Message with a cursed pen that only ever writes one thing anyway.
  • Dirty Old Man: Rick is constantly making inappropriate remarks, and the Conductor added a "no nudity unless absolutely necessary" rule just to stop him from being aggressively himself.
  • Einstein Hair: He looks like a drunk Mad Scientist, which, of course, he is.
  • Gadgeteer Genius: Built all his inventions himself, like the butter robot he recreates and the portal gun from the ending.
  • Graffiti of the Resistance: Claims he's doing this by... covering over the Conductor's profile to put his name as "Donald Trump."
  • Sir Swears-a-Lot: Nearly every other word out of Rick's mouth is profane or obscene.
  • Talkative Loon: Rick stammers out rambling, aimless speeches most of the time.
  • Villainous Breakdown: Zigzagged. Bursts into a rant when he's finally cornered during the sixth trial... before cutting himself off because he "wasn't feeling it". It's set back on track when he breaks down into tears, before ending prematurely when he slits his own throat.
  • Vulgar Humor: Fart jokes are his favourite thing.

Sol

Adversarial

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/9cbxped.png
"Ugh, whatever, investigation time, start, I guess... what a pain in the ass."

Made it to the survivor pool.


  • Angsty Surviving Twin: Says she doesn't know what she'd do if her sister Luna were a victim. She has to deal with it after Luna is murdered in Week 4.
  • Braids of Action: Most of her hair is still down, but she has a crown braid.
  • Colour-Coded for Your Convenience: Subverted. Sol is the twin with blue hair. Several characters comment on this.
  • Kid Hero: Survives to be a member of the so-called "Teen Asshole Squad".
  • Polar Opposite Twins: Sol is brash and outgoing, Luna is proper and reserved.
  • Sir Swears-a-Lot: Even when she's told to watch her language, she forgets right away.

Sukuyo Mankanshoku

Familial

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/8gj5mbs.png
"You know, the ugliest foods always taste the best!"

The victim of Week 7 (Case 7).


  • Cloudcuckoolander: Nobody understands her rambling and off-the-wall conclusions.
  • Despair Event Horizon: Driven to Suicide over her guilt at being, as far as she knew, the only mole.
  • Dreadful Musician: She experiments with the instruments for fun but doesn't know how to play anything.
  • Insane Troll Logic: After Logan's death, she attempts a ritual to seal their soul into a chicken.
  • The Mole: One of the three who's named as a mole suspect. It's all three of them.
  • Morality Pet: Becomes one to Dio, thanks to her reminding him of his saintly, deceased mother.
  • Seeks Another's Resurrection: Sukuyo tries to bring the dead back and have them possess the resident chickens, since those are the only convenient bodies around to use.
  • Skewed Priorities: Among other things, she thinks the main problem in eternal life would be the cost of public transport adding up.
  • Sleepwalking: Sukuyo can even reflexively fight in her sleep.
  • Stripperiffic: The one item of clothing from home that Sukuyo knows is safe is this. Naturally, she decides to wear the skimpy uniform all the time.
  • Supreme Chef: She's used to cooking with scraps and mystery meat, so with real food at her disposal, she wows everyone.

Susan Ashworth

Adroit

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mq4gyec.png
"Everyone has something they'd kill for — most people, anyway."

Made it to the survivor pool.


  • Beware the Quiet Ones: In the final trial, she states that she believes the group is making a mistake, but sees that her argument is futile and decides to just vote for mercy along with them rather than take a stand and die alone. But when he betrays them, she charges and stabs him in the face.
  • Broken Bird: Cynical, closed off, and with a very messed-up backstory.
  • The Coroner: As the resident nurse, she examined nearly every victim's body.
  • The Cynic: Starts the game pessimistic and remains that way even at the very end, when she and Sol are the only survivors to argue for Kimblee's death when the others start to wonder if they should spare him.
  • Knight In Sour Armor: Set the tone for jaded, mature protagonists.
  • The Medic: Acts as this in addition to her body-examining duties. Sadly, it comes up a lot less often.
  • Weapon of Choice: Her famed Flaming Sword from the finale, which was actually Tabby's idea.

Tabitha "Tabby" Smith

Dynamic

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/zwbysxa.jpg
"It's not breaking and entering if you, like, have a key."

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


  • Crippling Overspecialization: Described as having only one skill: setting things on fire. Tabby has impressive chemical and tactical knowledge, but only as it relates to burning things and blowing things up.
  • Never Learned to Read: Not very well, anyway. She always has to ask for help with the voting podium and only remembers how to spell a few names: the shortest ones (plus Logan's, and only because she already knows a Logan).
  • Pity the Kidnapper: Tries to invoke this by annoying the Conductor at every opportunity.
  • Robbing the Dead: Well-known in the school for corpse looting and cleaning out the dead's rooms. Bakugou realizes that a lot of evidence for the sixth trial must have been lifted from the scene and kept in the culprit's room, triggering Blue and Youko's epiphany that this is very similar to Tabby's behavior.
  • Sociopathic Hero: Says "You call the Avengers if you want, like, heroics. You call the Nextwave Squad if you want a job done." It ultimately results in her committing murder for a shot at trying to kill the shadow monster during her execution.

Undyne

Dauntless

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/viabjxl.png
"I refuse to believe there's nothing we can't do."

The culprit of Week 2 (Case 2).


Weiss Schnee

Crystalline

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/toyf1ma.png
"A storm is at least something you can rebuild from. This place? Not so much."

Made it to the survivor pool.


  • Defrosting Ice Queen: Because how else would she go from lecturing about language to part of the "Teen Asshole Squad"?
  • Icy Blue Eyes: Weiss appears cold and closed-off, so it fits.
  • Kid Hero: Survives to be a member of the so-called "Teen Asshole Squad".
  • Lady of War: She's refined, disciplined, and a trained warrior.
  • Lonely Rich Kid: She was one of these back home and, because she just wants friends, feels more at home with the loud, unruly other teenagers at Graceside than her demeanour would suggest.
  • Mystical White Hair: Weiss has an untouchable, mysterious image to uphold, at least at first, and her family does manufacture what magic runs on.

Youko

Transient

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/6xr9rts.jpg
"People change. It'd be much stranger if you stayed exactly the same."

Punished by the Conductor during Week 8.


  • In-Series Nickname: "Bloodhound-chan", thanks to Youko using her heightened sense of smell to successfully sniff out the culprit in case four, once the characters deduced they had split blueberry perfume on themselves.
  • The Nose Knows: Has a fox's sense of smell, and puts it to use during the fourth trial and sixth investigation.

Yuuri Shibuya

Lucent

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/qpi7h8s.png
"I just wish I knew what was actually going on, though."

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


  • Horrible Judge of Character: Yuuri is kind and expects everyone to be the same, even late in the game. He's lured to his death because of it.
  • What's Up, King Dude?: He may be a king, but he wants the others to treat him like any normal high school student.

    The Conductor & Others 

Solf J Kimblee

Conductor (Observant)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/b1usrjn.png
"You can call me the Conductor."

  • Alternate Self: Keeps tabs on a lot of his, particularly how and where they died. This may or may not extend to the one who spells his name with a Y, given that Round 2 shows that he's very dead as well and Kimblee may have been in contact with the game master of that round.
  • Appropriated Appellation: The Conductor takes on the "Observant" title Bakugou mockingly calls him by. Subverted later, as it turns out it used to be his title.
  • Big Bad: The immediate threat running the game.
  • Complexity Addiction: Anyone who hides keys in boxes behind locked doors and then hides the keys for those must have this to some degree. It reminds Bakugou of adventure games.
  • Cryptically Unhelpful Answer: He's very used to people trying to get answers out of him, so he's usually technically honest but not too helpful.
  • Hypocrite: He talks an awful lot about "equal exchange," but is more than happy to stack the deck in his own favour.
  • Lack of Empathy: Most commonly observed during his letters with the Participants. He outright tells Ashley he's not good at interacting with people or their feelings.
  • Obstructive Bureaucrat: Gave the characters a suggestion box. The answer received most frequently was "Your request has been denied."
  • Orcus on His Throne: Leaves enforcing the rules to his associates, most often the thing in the pit, while he sits safely behind the glass.
