Best Danganronpa V3 Characters

The best characters in New Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony (THIS LIST WILL CONTAIN SPOILERS)
The Top Ten
1 Kokichi Ouma

He's just the best boy. Tried so hard for the sake's of the others but he was so misunderstood, from start to end. And let's be honest without him the game would've been boring as hell!
He's very smart and oh boy his sass! Grandiose.
Yeah he did bad things, but he just wanted to live, so genius girl at fault there for me. He was really sad for the pure bugs boi tho. But it's not like he forced him to do what he did.
And hell I was so angry at all of 'em for not even beliving his dying words.. cept Kiibs. The irony of it lmao.

I would consider kokichi as best boi mainly because of his crazy antics and all the drama he caused in the game.To be honest I feel like without kokichi the game would have been really boring. That is why they have nagito and byakuya I n the other games. It’s their job. The things he says are also another reason why I think he is top. I would never have thought of those burns right on the spot. He is really sassy which is cool about him and you could really find yourself rewatching his best moments or writing down his quotes just to say it to your enemy or whatever one day. The fact that he is also really smart gives me another reason. Kokichi can manage to trick you in many ways possible by his amazing lying skills. There’s still more but I am not going to bother you

He's a best boi also he's swears sometimes at miu but he's the most best characters in danganronpa that means he's a liar but the lies are bad but still he's first person and he likes funny things in his trial like his good at shipping like ex. Kaede with kokichi himself doesn't mean his hates kaede? ofc not he's sometimes nice but a lil angry still it's cute :)

( spoilers) I personally see kokichi as the best character out of every danganronpa game. I feel like he is a very good candidate for shipping ( personally like saiouma don't come 4 me ) though he was quite annoying sometimes he was still the best boi. I love his pregame, after I played his trial it took me about a month to move on the the next chapter cus I didn't want to play the game with him dead. The motive vid just broke my heart, and not joking I literally cryed when Kaito came out of the Exisal which is when I truly knew my little cinnamon roll was gone. I think his final words were the truth, and that he thought shuichi was the only trustworthy one in the killing game since shuich was able to reveal keade. sry this was so long if anyone is reading this

2 Shuichi Saihara

Shuichi deserves happiness and I am so happy that this boy exists, he is so pure and perfect! I feel so bad for him, he misses Kaede. I am glad Kaede met this precious cinnamon roll. He literally is my most favorite character in Danganronpa V3

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.

One of my favorite anime protagonists, and my second favorite character of the show. A big mood, well written, and just overall a sweetheart.

Okay, I don't just like him because he's the main character, and I don't just like him because of his emo hat... That's a lie and I know it. He seemed like a very unique character in the game and was very interesting to me.

3 Ryoma Hoshi

Underrated as HELL. He's my 4th favorite DRV3 character. He was honestly hilarious even though he wasn't meant to be. Maybe it was his small body and deep voice, I don't know. But I love him. He died way to early. I cried.

He is so underrated! I love his character and I believe he could have lived longer and they ould have streched his character out more!

Ryoma really didn't deserve to die so early on. I believed he would have been able to find a purpose to live. Ryoma is overall just a pretty cool dude, and I wish I had seen more of 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

4 Miu Iruma

She's so vulgar but hell freakin hilarous. She is iconic. Let's not forget her smart brains, genius girl.
Shame she tried what she did. Still, she's interesting and I've grown fond of her lewd, loudness and weirdness which makes Miu, Miu.

She has to be one of the most inspiring video game/anime characters to me. She gives me lots of confidence and sorta let’s block out the whole outside world. For me, her personality is a magnet and I personally think she deserved way better. She was very helpfull and hilarious throughout the entire game and always made me smile, laugh, and just straight up think life is worth living, sounds really weird but it’s true. She does not deserve any of the hate she gets, she is very helpful in the game. by the way Kaemiu rocks. -Yashiro Glitch

Hell yeah! Miu's my favorite! She could've lived longer if so. Even if she was being vulgar along with her innuendos and such, she's even smart and even correctly guessed the culprits during the trials. I love her!

Even though she was a pretty vulgar, lewd, and loud character throughout the entire game, I still love her. She's honestly iconic, and she's super smart! She guessed most of the culprits right, and she even correctly guessed who the mastermind was! She's tied with Ibuki Mioda for Danganronpa best girl! <3

5 Angie Yonaga

She's got lots of hate thrown at her but I don't understand why. She tried her best to lead a peaceful life. She did her best to stop the KG.
I just love that girl, she's sweet and lighthearted even though she's damn smart too and kinda manipulative-good kind though-. Would have loooved Kichi/Angie friendships interactions.

She would make a good female antagonist if the game let her progress further. Beneath all the Atua lies a girl who wants everyone to be her friends and spend together with her no matter how and I guess the reason she does such things. I find her as smart and manipulative as Kokichi and if she teamed up with him, Atua help us. But she’s always so lighthearted, so happy and never let anything bring her down. She always does everything for her own happiness and to extent the others, which I find really great of her.

(spoilers) I know most people for her brainwashing acts but I feel like she was overall a sweet character I feel like she and Himiko were one of my all time favorite friendships and she just has a cute design what can I say? And all you Angie haters go get Atua's help <3

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

6 Kaede Akamatsu

Honestly Kaede is my favorite protagonist next to Hajime and Komaru. She should be higher on the list. Her clothing, awesome. And she's so optimistic.

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.)

My blonde pianist. I enjoyed the fake protag at the start but was sad during her execution. I would have loved if she were to have stayed alive for longer and comfort Shuichi.

Kaede isn't my favorite character, but I love her. Always when I see her death I cry. She is a a good character, and loveble. R.I.P Kaede Akamatsu.

7 Maki Harukawa

SHES SO UNDERRATED LIKE WHAT! shes my favorite character in the franchise and in my opinion much better then kirigiri since she actually showed emotions and didn't purposely almost kill her LI (yes I'm still salty that kirigiri almost got makoto killed) honestly her whole backstory and arc is so good and underappreciated.

Even though Maki seemed like a cold person, I understood her. I'll try to act friendly to my friends, but the truth is I'll be crying on the inside. When Maki had to watch Kaito's death it made me cry so much.

I loved the ship between her and Kaito, The fact she had to watch him die, hurt me, and she was going to throw her life away in Chapter 6 for him.

Maki's personality and character growth mean a lot to me. She went from being a very isolated and quiet character to one that essentially made a bigger impact on the story.

8 Gonta Gokuhara

I enjoy Gonta's soft personality and his way of words. Not only that, he's a gentleman! I'm not one to like bugs, but come on... who can resist loving such a gentle, kind character?

Gonta was such a sweetheart. All he ever wanted was to be nice and friendly, and he seemed so willing (and unintelligent...) to help others. I definitely took a blow when he was killed, he was so kind...

He is the best gentleman ever. I feel like he’s an angel from heaven who was there to help people’s inner demons such as those of Kokichi and Ryoma. Really, I feel like if Gonta became friends with Kokichi and Ryoma, that’s all the redemption they needed. Gonta can be gullible at times but I feel he’s not as stupid as others make out to be. He does everything for the sake of others, because they are good people and became his friends. His selflessness is commendable and I... I really cried at Chapter 4 for him. I feel things could be so different if Gonta, Miu and Kokichi... Gonta says he’s not a gentleman but that’s wrong. That’s wrong.

He is a very lovable character and he has his way of words and he is very kind to everyone mourning over everyone when they died its probably why I cry every time I see his death or hear his death mentioned

RIP Gonta Gokuhara

9 Kirumi Tojo

KIRUMI WAS THE MOM. I feel like her title should have been: Ultimate Mom. She acted so kindly to the DV3 group, and I loved how she cared for them. It saddened me when she was executed, and I felt like she actually didn't deserve it. Tbh, I'd want her as my mom.

I just, absolute love this character, she just wanted to make people happy, protect, and just help everyone, I love this character on and on and she always kept climbing even tho she was about to die..I wish she kept living on.

I love her so much. She is amazing and wonderful and just wants to help and protect everyone, no matter how much she had to sacrifice. She kept climbing, no matter how many times she was cut.

She's amazing - I loved how she had to sacrifice either her country or her friends. I cried when she was executed.

10 Kiibo

He's my second favorite Danganronpa character of all time he's so sweet and to this day Ido my best to avoid the I am not a robot quizzes. So underrated I cried when he died I think he should have been a survivor but he died like the hero he was and is.

In the end, I thought he was going to survive, and I cried when he pushed the self-destruct button. His sacrifice was probably the best out of all the Danganronpa games. I wish he had lived in the end.

That's robophobic! Okay, but seriously, he's such a sweetheart. My 5th favorite from DRV3. Not much to say except I love him, and I cried when he died.

I loved how he and Kokichi had their little games going on, but more importantly I loved his final sacrifice to end danganronpa.

The Contenders
11 Kaito Momota

A lot of people hate him, but he was actually a pretty great character. He died for killing Kokichi so Maki wouldn't be the culprit for killing him and Kokichi.

Kaito seemed like such a fun and happy guy once the story began playing out. He seemed so determined in training his 'sidekicks' and helping them out. It made me happy and sad at the same time when he had his execution. Kaito's death was sad and made me tear up, but it made me happy how he had died in space, where he wanted to go.

He may have killed off Kokichi, but he really didn't have a choice, Kokichi did give him the antidote, after all, he could've just left him to die to the poison and have Maki executed, but yet Kokichi helped Kaito, the two are more alike then people realize.

I mean, come on! Is there really anything else to say? A lot of people hate Kaito for killing Kokichi, but Kaito actually helped me get stronger! His outgoing personality and confidence is what made me love him from the start.

12 Rantaro Amami

He was robbed of his charater devepolment but still got it threw chapter 6. I really like him and his perosnality was really cool. It annoys me when people say something like "Oh you just like him because his design"

He might've been the first one to die and barely got any screen time, but honestly I really liked his personality, and his character was just pretty cool in my opinion. My second favourite V3 character and my third favourite Danganronpa character overall, he deserved to survive a second killing game tbh


He seemed really sweet, and I feel like he didn't get enough attention. He shouldn't have died first, and I felt like he should have survived DV3. He's definitely one of my favorite Danganronpa characters.

( spoilers) I personally think rantaro died to early in the game he was quite a good contender for being the mastermind. what his pregame ended up being for most people does make me like him a little less. he was a good character while he lasted.

13 Himiko Yumeno

Himiko was the bomb. She was such a sweet and innocent character. I was quite happy when she survived, seeing as she seemed to be so hopeful. Some people may call her bland or boring, but I personally think she's one of the most happy-go-lucky characters out there.

I am glad that Himiko was a survivor, I feel like people don't like her due to how "bland" she seems, The precious baby just wants to be like her master, and shower the audience in shock.

Okay I know some people wish she wasn’t a survivor but I can’t agree with that. She lost Angie and Angie was literally her closest friend and her
one outlet then Tenko died and that was her breaking point. She lifted up the cage that took kokichi and Shuichi to place over Tenko by herself really quickly. She really deserves to be alive

She is actually really underrated. Both her friends died in one chapter. That's really sad.

14 Korekiyo Shinguji

My favourite Danganronpa character in the whole series, he's such a disliked and misunderstood character in terms of most of the fandom. People just found him creepy off the bat but he's a really unique person and I really like him. a lot of people just really dislike him because he killed Tenko and/or Angie along with his relationship with his sister but none of that was his fault and it was a huge misunderstanding, his sister was emotionally manipulative and abusive, literally none of that was on him. His sister was ill and she knew she'd end up dying, so she manipulated him into doing all the things she knew she could never do. Basically, Miyadera guilt-tripped him into feeling bad about her state and into a relationship because she also knew she'd never be able to experience it and this was the only option she had if she wanted to be in one. Korekiyo was probably a lot younger at that point which would also make him even more vulnerable to her advances. His whole ultimate and ...more

Korekiyo is SEVERELY misunderstood and was abused/manipulated by his sister. HE deserves to be protected. Please Don't think he's weird or creepy without reading into his backstory :|

I agree, kiyo deserved so much better and is hated on by so many people that have yet to learn his backstop and his reasons for doing what he did, either way in my opinion he is my favourite out of the whole entire franchise

Honestly he is a great character, it was the incest sub plot that ruined his character

15 Tsumugi Shirogane

She is my literal Waifu. She deserves to be top, she is the best mastermind. She is so beautiful and cute! She is my favorite mastermind and antagonist!

Even though I didn't really LIKE her. I definitely thought (since I'ma lesbian) that she's hot. I personally liked Tsumugi better than Junko, and I thought she was a very smart mastermind. From Rantaro's death to the very end. The title 'Ultimate Cosplayer' completely made sense. I feel like she's very underrated.

Spoilers here! My favorite headmaster in the entire danganronpa series. Before she showed her real personality, she seemed cute.

Okay, okay. I actually love Tsumugi! I personally think she was lying about our favs being fake, but y’know. Personally, I think she was a great mastermind.

16 Tenko Chabashira

I love how cheerful and energetic she is, but I also love how she's a fighter! She's really not afraid to speak her mind, but at the same time, can be easily flustered, and I love that about her!

Ok I do NOT understand why she is last on this list. She was such a cool character and had such big affect on Himiko. She is amazing and I love her.

I will forever love my lesbian queen, Tenko. She was so funny, and she's my 3rd favorite from DRV3. I cried so much when she died. And I hate Korekiyo for that. (Actually I hated him wayyy before lmao). Anyways, she's a queen.

she actually helped me through stuff and I love her character! FR tho one of my favs also the way she's optimistic makes me smile because she died for a reason almost like she sacrificed herself for himiko and the rest of v3 characters. And... her death fr made me cy (along with angie) :(

17 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

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

Junko HAS the be higher then the 21st character

ULTIMATE DESPAIR I love Junko not because she loves Despair She was just a good Character in General I kind of like both Despair And Hope

Best girl and not in v3 and tsumgi is annoying

18 Monokuma

Monokuma is the same way with Junko Not because he’s with Despair Just a good Character in General I can't pick between Hope Or Despair

OwO I wuv monokuma

Gimme gimme Chicken Tendies. Be they crispy, or from Wendy's. Spend my hard-earned Good Boy Points, on kid's meal, ballpit, burger joints. Mummy lifts me to the car, to find me tendies near and far. Enjoy my tasty tendie treats, in comfy big boy booster seats. Mcdonald's, Hardee's, Popeye's, Cane's, But of my tendies, none remains. She tries to make me take a nappy, but sleeping doesn't make me happy. Tendies are the only food, that puts me in the napping mood. I'll scream, I'll shout, I'll make a fuss. I'll scratch, I'll bite, I'll even cuss! Tendies are my heart's desire, fueled by raging, hungry fire! Mummy sobs and wails and cries, but tears aren't tendies, nuggs or fries. My Good Boy Points are fairly earned, to buy the tendies that I've yearned. But there's no tendies on my plate. Did Mummy think that I'd just ate? Tendies, Tendies, get them NOW! YOU FAT, UNGRATEFUL, SLUGGISH SOW I SCREECH WHILE HURLING INTO HER EYES, MY FOUL BOUL DIAPER SURPRISE, FOR SHE WHO IS POOPED ON IS SHE ...more

19 Monotaro

He literally jumped into fire to try to save Kiyo, If this doesn't prove he was a good character, nothing will.

best monokub no cap

20 Mikan Tsmuiki

She looks so cute and was honestly just a interesting character

She is in V2 Not V3

favorite mastermind.

21 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.

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

This is a list for V3 characters why is Hiyoko here

Me and Hiyoko have the same birthday lol

22 Nagito

love meh little crazy.

23 Hajime Hinata
24 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.

Not a drv3 character, but he's still best boi #2.

He's not from DRV3, but he's still best boy, second only to Kokichi.

I Like his T-shirt

25 Sakura Ogami

comparing this girl to the real sakura is like the 'be careful who you bully in middle school' thing. anyway I don't remember the part when ogami shows up in v3 :)
