Best Character Designs from Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc

One thing that I really appreciate from Danganronpa is how the characters look, everyone looks extremely unique and interesting (for the most part). Spoiler will be below, since talking about this game at all will spoil certain things, so I'm not even going to try to make this list suitable for those who haven't finished the game.

The Top Ten

1 Celeste Celestia Ludenberg (セレスティア・ルーデンベルク Seresutia Rūdenberuku), also known as Celeste, is a student in Hope's Peak Academy's Class 78th, and a participant of the Killing School Life featured in Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc. Her title is the Ultimate Gambler.

For a character in the first game when the team were just starting off, Celeste had such a great design and is probably still one of my favourites throughout all the characters. You can see how much effort really went into the character creation, and I really hope the artist behind this got a raise. - Danganronpa

A big part about various characters in the game that I like about them is the colour. In the case of Celeste, I love the lack of almost any colour, her costume is also pretty cool, but I just love how unique she looks thanks to how literally colourful everyone else looks. - kempokid

she looks fancy

I love it. - starryrcad

Goth queen, enough said

2 Kyoko Kirigiri Kyoko Kirigiri, a character from Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc, is a student of Class 78 in Hope's Peak Academy, who also participates in Monokuma's Killing School Life. She is the Ultimate Detective.

I love her a lot. I think the story behind her burnt hands is also an interesting detail.

I like her character design, but I feel it was wasted on a character like her lmao - Danganronpa

Everything about how she looks somehow adds to that air of mystery that she always has. The abundance of purple is also extremely nice, especially since it is a much more refined, subtle look compared to almost every other character. - kempokid

Her looks are incredible and her beauty is without match. Kyoko has a pretty refreshing look

3 Monokuma

Monokuma is the reason I draw in a way I do, he gave me inspiration to make such half and half drawings!

There is a very good reason why Monokuma is such a memorable mascot for the entire series, as well as his extremely entertaining dialogue, he looks so good. He perfectly fits the theme of the game and looks awesome with how defined each of his sides are while still clearly looking like one entity - kempokid

4 Junko Enoshima Junko Enoshima (江ノ島 盾子 Enoshima Junko), is a student in Hope's Peak Academy's Class 78th, and a participant of the Killing School Life featured in Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc. Her title is Ultimate Fashionista/True Ultimate Despair

While her basic design is fairly average (hair not included), her various facial expressions and mannerisms make her an awesome character to watch. - kempokid

Best girl. I like her sexy design

Dude that’s not even her lol

5 Leon Kuwata Leon Kuwata is a student in Hope's Peak Academy's Class 78th, and a participant of the Killing School Life featured in Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc. His title is Ultimate Baseball Star.

He might be my least favourite character, but I love how he looks. His flame red hair and his awesome costume heavily remind me of the excellent game, the World Ends With You. He also somewhat reminds me of Axel from Kingdom Hearts. - kempokid

He kinda ugly with that beard - BestGrillIbuki

6 Toko Fukawa

Once again, it's thanks to Genocide Jack that she ranks highly, her basic design is interesting enough, but she always slightly annoyed me. When Genocide Jack appeared, this stopped, because she all of a sudden became so much cooler looking, with her insane facial expressions and her tongue, which somehow grew longer. She is another character who I like watching thanks to her mannerisms rather than basic design. - kempokid

Why does she think she’s ugly - BestGrillIbuki

7 Yasuhiro Hagakure

I don't like his character much, but his design is very fitting for him. Just by looking at him, you could tell that he is laid back and doesn't take anything seriously. I also find his hair to be great. - kempokid

His looks explain exactly how he is and I love it - Danganronpa


8 Kiyotaka Ishimaru

His face is one of pure determination, which is perfect for him, I particularly like his eyes. This face makes it all the better when he is happy about something because it feels that much more special when it is him who smiles. - kempokid

Those hot eyebrows... also I love him like character... I also love chihiro but I think this time I will vote ishimaro. He need more love :(

I love his suit so much uwu - Danganronpa

Damn those eyebrows 👌 - BestGrillIbuki

9 Chihiro Fujisaki

He looks so innocent all the time, and I love it. While he looks fairly normal, it suits him well, as he isn't someone who tries standing out. I find him to just generally look pleasant - kempokid

10 Byakuya Togami Byakuya Togami is a student in Hope's Peak Academy's Class 78th, and a participant of the Killing School Life featured in Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc. His title is Ultimate Affluent Progeny.

I think his mannerisms and outfit make up for the disconnect between his hair and personality

Love his design so much, his emo hair doesn't really fit his whole personality I feel, but I still like it. - Danganronpa

Once again, he doesn't look particularly amazing, but I definitely think that his design is good and fitting. His facial expressions match this, as he almost always looks like he's sick of everyone. - kempokid

I secretly relate to Byakuya on a spiritual level (no regrets in admitting that, honestly) - xandermartin98

He is 60% leg

The Contenders

11 Miu Iruma

her uniform looks cute, and I love her goggles.

also the tentacle hair - starryrcad

sexy gorl

12 Kokichi Oma

purple and chess board-like bandana, that's why - starryrcad

Kokichi is just danm sexy...

13 Hifumi Yamada

And now for the only character in this game who I say looks bad, not just boring, straight up bad. His face makes him look like some sort of weird rodent and he just looks terrible in general. - kempokid

14 Mukuro Ikusaba

Great design

15 Sakura Ogami

I adore sakura's design. yes, it's very, VERY exaggerated, but I think that's what makes it so good.

While I personally find her design to be a bit too stylised, I do still find it to be funny that so many people think she is a man (I personally did that as well until I saw her name). Her face always showing intense focus is the main reason I like her design. - kempokid

16 Aoi Asahina

I don't find there to be anything interesting about her design at all (no, fanservice-esque proportions don't count as something interesting). - kempokid

17 Korekiyo Shinguji

HE has a good character design.

I'm pretty sure it says THH, not V3.

18 Nagito Komaeda Nagito Komaeda (狛枝 凪斗 Komaeda Nagito), is a student of Hope's Peak Academy's Class 77-B, and a participant of the Killing School Trip featured in Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair. His title is Ultimate Lucky Student.

I think he is very interesting and has changed personality from the first game makoto to ulitmate despair

19 Makoto Naegi Makoto Naei is the protagonist of the 2010/2014 game Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc. He is the Ultimate Lucky Student, a student randomly picked by Hope's Peak Academy to join the school. As a student of Class 78, he is forced to participate in the Killing School Life, a killing game orchestrated more.

I do like how he looks, but I honestly can't find much that defines him from any other character, kind of like how I find his character to be fairly standard. I do like his hair though. - kempokid

He looks cool - BestGrillIbuki

20 Mondo Oowada

He looks pretty cool, except his hair, which looks so stupid that I can't take him seriously at all. For someone who is supposed to be intimidating to some extent, they chose the worst possible hairstyle. - kempokid

Mondos hair LOL - Danganronpa

21 Sayaka Maizono

While Hina was very generic looking, nothing can top Sakaya in the realm of uninteresting. She looks like the most standard anime girl possible, literally 0 defining features. - kempokid
