Best Danganronpa V3 Characters

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

The Top Ten Best Danganronpa V3 Characters

1 Kokichi Ouma

His role as the anti-hero was played out nicely, especially since he would point out flaws that no one wanted to admit.

"You're too scared to point your fingers at others, so you hide behind the word trust. How do you expect to find the culprit when you're all worried about each other's feelings? " - Kokichi Ouma

He's done some morally dubious things, but he was the one who wouldn't play the mastermind's game. The fact that he calls out overly cheesy things and how people would only care about one another when they're already gone makes me like him even more.

He may be annoying but he still makes him the funniest character

Was the only reason I even bothered playing everyone else beside a few hand full were too boring.

Easily the best villain of the series, even more entertaining than Komaeda and Junko

2 Shuichi Saihara

Best protag by nearly every measure (development and character design notably)

Arguably some of the best character development in danganronpa, aside from Toko in my opinion. He seems bland at first but if you think that, just wait till the end of the game.

Definitely the best protagonist so far, finally one with a lot of story and character, just like we wanted. Still would've preferred Kaede however. - Danganronpa

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

3 Ryoma Hoshi

Best boy! he's so ridiculously hilarious but somehow simultaneously, I can relate to and feel sympathetic toward him as a character. he's definitely a breath of fresh air compared to the incredibly optimistic characters in the series. he was super interesting and he was baby

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

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

I just love him

4 Maki Harukawa

"ah yes I'm the Ultimate child caregiver...HAHA LOL U THOUGHT I'm AN ASSASSIN"

i I love Maki-roll - Porck_Bunzz

The worst girl. Selfish and edgy. Shouldn't be on this list.

She looks tough and stone hearted but she’s really adorable and needs LOVE!

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

5 Miu Iruma

she's pretty much a ho n stuff
but I love her
we're like... twins but she's more older - starryrcad

I was super late to Danganronpa, but Miu was seriously one of the most useful characters there. Yes, maybe she was extremely lewd and loud, but she first of all guessed the culprit twice and got it right on the first try, and she even guessed the mastermind right! Plus, if Kokichi hadn't asked her to invent a bunch of different things like the electro hammers and bombs, not even his own plan would have worked out! She deserved way more love, and I wish she could be higher up on this list. She really is an interesting character, that has a lot more to her than what meets the eye.


She's one of the few characters that made v3 entertaining and funny. Best girl 10/10.

She is the best character in whole series.

6 Kaede Akamatsu

Kaede makes me cry. She was so hopeful, so convinced she was going to get through the killing game, but she was one of the first to die. She encouraged literally everyone, Shuichi in particular, and, from the entire Danganronpa franchise, her talent as a classical instrumentalist is close enough to me. I know she isn't completely innocent, but technically, according to the actual rules of the game, she shouldn't have died! I love Kaede, she'll always be the second best Danganronpa character for me. (next to Chihiro.)

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

Honestly, she's the best protag out of every protag in the series - Carlitooooo

I’m such a musical type person and Clair de lune is best. She deserved better!
Saimatsu forever!

7 Kaito Momota

Kaito is incredible, he's the one opinion of the game you can't change of me. He impacted me in a way no other character in the franchise has and he taught me to believe in myself.

Kaito momota, Luminary of the stars. Really changed me, He's made me believe in myself more which was hard before, In my opinion he's one of the best DR3 characters ever!

One of the more likeable characters- I haven't finished the series yet. (Korekiyo just died)

Honestly my favorite character
I wish he survived instead of yumeno - GenericUser

8 Rantaro Amami

Mysterious is good. Mysterious is great. Adventuring as well. AND boyfriend scenarios are cool.

He is such a nice calm, sweet, generous avocado! I wish he could've been in the game a bit longer, or for at least once class trial.

He's my favorite character because he had been a great help especially to Kaede. He's my Avocado Boi!

Rantaro is well... intriguing, especially for what appears to be his personality.
He should be more noticed by fandom, in my opinion.

(Sorry for the bad English, Brazilian here)

9 Gonta Gokuhara

So he was kinda completely useless but at the same time it’s literally impossible to hate this precious lil boi
His execution was very depressing - GenericUser

Why is he so low? He is such a cinnamon roll and he's so pure and cute and kind and just wants to protect everyone!

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

Gonta is a precious cinnamon roll! - lantern-tan

10 Kiibo

I'm honestly so angry that he had to die. He was the sweetest guy and he deserved to be a survivor.

His voice makes him sound SOOO innocent and he literally died to save the remaining

Kiibo is amazing and probably has the best character design I've ever seen

Kiibo is one of the best of all in my mindset, he should be much higher on the list.

The Newcomers

? 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.

The Contenders

11 Kirumi Tojo

Kirumi is amazing, and such a kind character. I can relate to her a lot. I honestly don't see why she's this low.

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

Uwu Best girl had to die (Cries in corner)

(Spoilers) What?! She's below the mastermind?! As much as I like Tsumugi, Kirumi is tied for my favorite in this game (competing only with Gonta).

12 Angie Yonaga

She is quite selfish at times yes but, she doesn't appear to be intentionally malicious, and she genuinely cares and wants to guide everyone through her words.
She planned to make the academy "heaven on earth" to get rid of the will to escape and overall stop the killing game itself
Even after finding out Tenko betrayed her she Immediately forgave her and told her to be better off in the future

angie is a best girl and you can't change my mind
I think her atua-worshipping things as normal, speaking from a person in uite a religious country - starryrcad

She is baby, and also "Atua is not a person, Atua is god"...Angie needs love - Porck_Bunzz

I love this character! People aren't attracted to her quirkiness and cuteness. I agree that she only wants to help those around her and spread hope in a hopeless situation.

13 Tsumugi Shirogane

Switching threw characters in the trial for was so cool for her to finally show her talent

Me in a nutshell - buttersock


14 Tenko Chabashira

Tenko really was trying to impress a certain character… but really when she says she doesn’t want to be called cute and asks tough is cute

Tenko deserves more love. Deep down she is just a child stuck in a young adult's body.

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

Tenko deserves more love ;-; - OrangeRin

15 Korekiyo Shinguji

I love him, he was just so mysterious, so smart and so interesting!

To be honest I think he's hot-

Good before sister. sister is garbage 0/10. kiyo is a lovely being who deserves happiness 11037/10

My lord and savior amen korekiyo

16 Himiko Yumeno

She is so cute and I'm shoked that she succeded to not die (mi english is bad... really bad)

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

Himiko is my precious little cinnamon roll

Himiko is too precious for this world!

17 Monokuma

OwO I wuv monokuma

18 Monotaro


19 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

Junko is like the perfect evil and hot character to be honest don't no why people don't like her lmao who cares if she's the evil one

Because she's evil, not many people are attracted to evil but I am

Junko HAS the be higher then the 21st character

I love her, my favorite of the entire series >:33

20 Hiyoko Saionji

I don't understand why people don't like her! She's the same as Fuyuhiko with the fact that they were both jerks before Chapter 2. If only she had survived at least another chapter, maybe she would get the love she deserves.

Danganronpa V3.
Keyword: V3.
NOT V2, V3.
Just because tsumugi cosplayed as her in the last trial doesn’t mean she counts - GenericUser

This is a list for V3 characters why is Hiyoko here

Hiyoko is really mean but at least she speaks her mind.

21 Hajime Hinata
22 Monodam

Best goldfish

The only tolerable monokub - GenericUser

"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."

Beep boop, he's mr. roboto! they’re all robots though so what? is he just robot²? whatever good son robot²/10.

23 Monosuke
24 Monophanie

I like her puking noises

25 Monokid

He just has a rock hard rager

I've GOT A ROCK HARD RAGER - Danganronpa

26 Mikan Tsmuiki

She is in V2 Not V3

Again, V2 - GenericUser
