Best Dangan Ronpa Characters

The Top Ten

1 Kokichi Ouma Kokichi Ouma

His charisma is something that draws attention, the same in his childlike appearance

His character seems the most developed. Plus, he just seems like one of those characters that is too lovable to let go of.

I think not only his personality and intentions makes him the best boi, but also his innocent and childish appearance made him the most lovable character!

One of the best boy who deserves more. He's a smartass, pretends like the bad guy but actually cares a lot, and always tries his best!

3 Nagito Komaeda Nagito Komaeda

He's refreshing...
He's smart, good looking (come on! You have to admit that he is), always a step ahead, knows things that others aren't even aware of it but doesn't voice it out directly, and insane (but this makes him a lot more charming 'cause he didn't end up being a Gary Stu)
And I can't help but love characters that are talented but has flaws, that makes them more human
And a lot of people dislike that insane side of him but lets take a minute and think that he's had a traumatizing childhood and how he was diagnosed with a terminal illness. But you know what? Him being smart but insane is what makes him standout and attracting.

I love him! His personality is so complicated and it's interesting to watch his actions, usually, they're really weird and unexpected. He's quite relatable to me. And he's really pretty and his voice is like sksksksk.

I would die for him.

He is so badass. His philosophy of happiness is inviting and cool.

5 Ibuki Mioda

I might be biest due to some personal reasons, but Ibuki is definitely my all time favourite character from pretty much any game. Her personally really just clicked for me and the way she motivated the player during her free time events really cheered me up!

Best girl!

I love her personality, design, music, everything. - cam1922

She hella recked the official best character polls, didn't you know!?
I-bu-ki Mi-o-the!

8 Oogami Sakura

SHES SUCH A GOOD CHARACTER! She died to make sure everyone else would live. She was willing to take her own life if it meant her friends would be safe - I honestly cried on her death.

Sakura is the best :( underrated

She was the one who opened everyone's eyes to the truth. She also was a character that broke so many girl stereotypes despite her extremely feminine name. Sakura did not think of anyone as the enemy even though she was supposed to be a spy. Sakura had enough self honor, and kindness to kill herself instead of murdering other characters like the game seemed to require.

Low key got mad when he swore after Mondo died

I vote him because he is the lowest here and he is one of my favorites. There is really much my favorites.uwu that's make me happy. It was sad to look at him after second class trial and I'm sad because he died.

Catch me crying in the club when he died

Why did he die

15 Celestia Ludenberg Celestia Ludenberg

Celestia started the "2 murders in chapter three" trend and that makes her super unique!

Celeatia is my favorite character!

I wish she had more development - fangirl69

She is a gothic lolita how could I hate her! ❤️

16 Naegi Makoto

He's the best protag and the best character ever! I love you Makoto

Look, I hate using the term cinnamon roll, but Naegi is just that. He's best boi and nothing will ever disprove that

He's the best protagonist - fangirl69

He's my favorite character. He has unwavering determination and optimism, a trait that I like about him. He is very kind to several people as well. I also think he's cute. In episode 11 of the anime, just look at his eyes when he realizes that Kyoko has saved him from the person who could have killed him! THOSE EYES! - listotaku17

17 Chihiro Fujisaki Chihiro Fujisaki

Ok he's not a trap, he dressed as a girl because he didn't feel he was physically or mentally strong enough to be a boy, so he dressed up as a girl, a trap is a male who dresses up as a female to get attraction from men, he did no such thing like that

Trap. That is all.

18 Junko Enoshima Junko Enoshima

How in the world is she down there?

How is she so low? She is one of the most likeable characters in the game, and have you even seen the amount of things that pop up if you search her name? She is also one of the most reconizable characters, and guess what? She's definitely more likeable than Voldemort!

Junko is the best evil girl in anime

One of the most badass and awesome villains of all time, anyone who hates her has no good taste (that goes for you, Sassy13crown)

Hated him - fangirl69

Best Space Daddy

Best boy

This dude was annoying

24 Sayaka Maizono

So I guess I'm not the only person who never got over this death. She was my favorite dammit!

A little sad how this character got treated by the developers (We made her the first 'victim' because we're sick of seeing her n leon lul). Feel like if she had more time in the game more people would've liked her

She betrayed Makoto, dislike her - fangirl69

I love her!

25 Hajime Hinata

I enjoy him way to much for my own good.

Hinata is too nice for this world

He is the best protagonist of all games, I loved his history and development (also Komaeda, Nanami and Naegi)

Best protagonist by far and had some of the best character development in the series
Just wish he was shown more in danganronpa 3

Cute punk baby

29 Oowada Mondo

I'm just happy that mondo tried to hide chihiros secret of him being a boy, it shows you how caring mondo can actually be.

He meant well, but he really needed a therapist for his ptsd so he would've have killed Chirio - fangirl69

Mondo butter anyone? It is human flavour.I find it yummy. - buttersock


30 Kazuichi Souda

Precious little bean 💜

Last night he was in Sonia's room

And he stole her underwear too - xandermartin98

П I love Souda so much💕
He should get more love!

31 Mukuro Ikusaba

She is very interesting and the novel provides more depth to her character.

In my opinion, I think she should've survived. She definitely deserved to survive - VeranAsh

Just because we barley know her doesn't mean she isn't awesome

32 K1-B0 K1-B0

Why's she down here again? - AzkaNesia

Easily one of my favourite characters if not my favourite.

ON THE 38!? WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE! SHE IS THE GREATEST AND THE KINDEST OF (sniff) all danganronpa (sniff) SERIESSS (sniff) Why did she die so sooonnn

Such a sweet girl! She’s easily one of the best characters in Danganronpa! Even in the first chapter when nobody knew each other that well, she still gave it her all in order to protect her friends by killing the mastermind. In the class trial, she stood her ground until she finally gave up and admitted that she killed Rantaro. She’s sorta like Chiaki, she pushed Shuichi to give the clues that she was the killer. She also left a will like Chiaki, she also loved her friends like Chiaki. Easily the best characters the the charcterters who love their friends so much that they’d sacrifice their lives in order to save them.

34 Monokuma

I truly love that little guy

He runs the show like a boss

How could you guys forget him? - lavashooter

He is a mass executioner, I love that.

40 Peko Pekoyama Peko Pekoyama

She is quite nice!

Why peko is the Best girl & Danganronpa Waifu:
Alright Peko Haters! Today I will show you why Peko could be the best waifu in Danganronpa 2. If You like Chiaki, I do too. So, I'm NOT SAYING YOU HAVE TO LIKE HER ALRIGHT!?!. Anyways, back on with why Peko is the Best waifu.
Alright, so Peko would be a great waifu because she could be your bodyguard & waifu. She could all sorts of stuff. She could kill for you, do chores, and etc. Even if Peko was pretty serious and didn't know how to smile, someone could always teach her like Mahiru & Hajime. She has a like for animals. SO ALL YA ANIMAL LOVES MIGHT LIKE HER TOO! You can always tell her that shes not a tool like Fuyuhiko. at least he was supportive of her and she was supportive of him. She's also someone you can keep by your side and always trust. With her caring and kind personality, Peko has the traits of a REALLY AMAZING waifu!

41 Gonta Gokuhara

44 Kiyotaka Ishimaru Kiyotaka Ishimaru

The best of da bois

45 Nekomaru Nidai

Why is he so low?!

46 Kirumi Tojo Kirumi Tojo

She is so low! - OrangeRin

...Can someone give me a reason why this girl Is at the bottom? Is it because she is the Togami Maid? Or does everyone hate her except me?

Here comes a woman who all employers dream of having, a dedicated person who finds a large amount of achievement in work and is willing to go beyond doing what is adequate...

Heads up people watch out for #50 in this list, it so doesn’t belong. P.S. Who does this crap?!

47 Teruteru Hanamura Teruteru Hanamura

I still like him even if he's a pervert ew

Lick my fingers

My absolute favorite, I feel people miss judge him due to his prevented nature and odd looks but if you watch or play through his free time events you’ll learn that he’s a very reliable person and is very loyal.
It is also mentioned that he never had a dad and all of his siblings had different mothers, the dad being the horrible person he was left all the kids he had with Hanamura’s mother.
Most people hate him for his perverted remarks but, look at Miu! She’s the exact same but worse in my opinion, she has no redeeming quality’s, she’s super over confident which is a personality trait I hate, and I feel that most people only like her for her appearance.
Another person who falls victim to the perverted for no reason trait is Hifumi, he often chimes in during important conversations with useless information, like how during the prologue, he mentions vore while Aoi is sharing how she thought Monokuma was going to eat her. He says something along the lines of “Eat? ...more

48 Sakura Ogami Sakura Ogami

Why is she so low

49 Tsumugi Shirogane Tsumugi Shirogane

Tsumugi I think was a great character. Her being the mastermind never occurred to me that she was the mastermind! She was just an appealing character, and I believe should be higher on this list!

I really liked Tsumugi, but of course I knew she wouldn't be really high._.

50 Ragyo Kiryuin Ragyo Kiryuin Ragyo Kiryuin is a fictional character in the anime television series Kill la Kill produced by Trigger. She is the mother of Satsuki Kiryuin and is the main antagonist of the series.
