Best Danganronpa V3 Characters

The best characters in New Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony (THIS LIST WILL CONTAIN SPOILERS)

The Top Ten

1 Kokichi Ouma Kokichi Ouma

This dude is just the best. He pulls off both the antagonistic and the comic relief role so well. I'm not even surprised that he has many fangirls. I even liked him more than KOMAEDA at one point. He's one of the smartest characters, and he likes to manipulate, cheat, and most of all: LIE. Like Shuichi said, this guy's an embodiment of lies. He represents one of the main themes in this game, lies. - MilesRS777

Kokichi is so beautiful and so cute and precious he deserved so much better

But I love him so much
He's a horrible yet precious gremlin that I want to protect and throw out of a plane at the same time - rawrxyy

2 Shuichi Saihara Shuichi Saihara

First of all, his design is pretty awesome. Probably has my favorite design out of all the DR characters. He's also my favorite protagonist. You may argue that he's a two dimensional chopped up version of Makoto or Hajime. I thought that at first too, but I changed my mind at the end of the game. Shuichi might've had the best character development out of all the characters. He's suffered so much, and had many of his friends die, and he had a lack of confidence. But, because of those who helped him, he managed to overcome his fear of revealing the truth, another theme of the game. Just like Kokichi represents lies, Shuichi represents truth. - MilesRS777

Instead of being a boring normal dude for the audience to latch on to he was given a great character arc and an actual personality.

This man is the best! He's also the greatest protagonist I've ever seen!

He should be higher than Kokichi. Best protagonist.

3 Maki Harukawa Maki Harukawa

Maki Roll! She's really badass, she's the ULTIMATE ASSASSIN, for crying out loud, and almost killed that pain in the butt Kokichi. The reason she isn't that up there, is because she can sometimes be a bit annoying. - MilesRS777

Best girl

Maki woll

4 Ryoma Hoshi

Severe outside, but kind inside. Ryoma overcame a lot of suffering and deserves true love.

I just love him

Ryoma's one of those characters who could've had perfect character development, but NOPE, he gets killed off. Even if he was fictional and all that, I found his "backstory" pretty depressing. He thought he had no reason to live, and even let Kirumi kill him, which is pretty sad - MilesRS777

UNDERRATED - rawrxyy

5 Miu Iruma Miu Iruma

She's basically if Hiyoko was an inventor and wasn't annoying. She's also hilarious. - MilesRS777

6 Kiibo Kiibo

Oh, Kiibo. This dude's just so awesome. He's one of the funniest characters in the whole game, also having one of my favorite lines (That's robophobic! ). And he's also just that dude who wants to fit in, but can't because he's a robot. Also, he's the ULTIMATE HOPE ROBOT. That's a pretty badass title if you ask me. - MilesRS777

Kiibo was the Jesus of Danganronpa V3...he died for our sins and that's final

This robot is the ultimate cinnamon roll... Just the different interactions with him throughout the game, weather they're funny, or adorable, K1-B0 always puts a smile on my face.
(Yes, I'm a nerd, don't judge meh._.)

7 Rantaro Amami

Well, we all thought this dude was gonna be the Komaeda of this game. But then, he's the first dude to die. He's really suspicious, up to the point where I was like "OKAY WHAT ARE YOU HIDING". We then find out that he's the Ultimate Survivor, because he participated in a previous killing game. He also has my favorite set of sprites. Y'know, if Kaede, Shuichi, and Kiibo weren't here, Rantaro would've been a pretty cool protagonist, because he would've been different from the others. - MilesRS777

8 Kaede Akamatsu Kaede Akamatsu

Oh, Kaede, how I miss you... Poor Shuichi had to suffer with the fact that Kaede's dead, and was framed for something she didn't even do. Kaede's optimistic and upbeat personality is just another reason to love her. She was also one of the people to keep Shuichi going, so I'll give her that. - MilesRS777

Kaede is a pure cinnamon roll who deserves to be happy. She sacrificed herself in order to save her friends whom she had known for only like...1 and 1/2 days. She’s SO awesome...that during the class trial, her friends stuck up for her in vain trying to prove her innocence. Kaede left such a selfless will to Shuichi! ! Precious-!

9 Kaito Momota Kaito Momota

Larry Bu- I mean Kaito Momota is the best bro you could ever have. Just like how Kokichi's the typical villain stereotype, Kaito's the typical shonen hero stereotype. He and Shuichi are sorta my BrOTP, and sure the typical "BELIEVE IN YOURSELF" might've been a bit corny, like I said, he's the best bro - MilesRS777

Kaito is best boy, even if he isn't my favorite he's best boy, always best boy, and he always believes in his friends and he's strong and so upbeat and I wanna be like Kaito he's such an inspiring boy please I just want to give him a big hug he deserves all the love this world has to offer - rawrxyy

To be honest, this dude is awesome. I really don’t get why he so underrated.

10 Gonta Gokuhara

He's your typical gentle giant, but will get angry if you talk bad about bugs. I never really got what was so likable about him, but I'll admit, I got emotional during Chapter 4 - MilesRS777

The Contenders

11 Tsumugi Shirogane Tsumugi Shirogane

Me in a nutshell - buttersock

12 Korekiyo Shinguji Korekiyo Shinguji

Betrayzed by ze ded zizter...SAL-In other words,Kiyo needs more love.Poor guy...he needs therapy.Also... ZEE SSSAALTTT

13 Himiko Yumeno Himiko Yumeno

To me, Himiko is the most relate-able characters out of all of them - robokieran10

14 Kirumi Tojo

What?! She's so awesome! Why is she down here? I love her!

The female, non-jerkish, Togami maid. She was my waifu at first, but after she killed Ryoma, I started losing respect for her. - MilesRS777

I feel She should be on top :|

15 Tenko Chabashira Tenko Chabashira

Tenko is a cool Aikido Master, but she doesn't trust men. My guess is from severe anger-tantrums.

16 Angie Yonaga Angie Yonaga

So underappreciated. This is best girl right here! Some people hate her for her actions or her relation to Atua, but she only wants to help those around her and spread hope in a hopeless situation.

17 Monokuma Monokuma

OwO I wuv monokuma

18 Monotaro


19 Monodam

"First of all, he is already being threatened to death by the fat named Monoxide. He d e s e r v e s more love."
