Top 10 Best Danganronpa V3 Characters

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

I tend to believe in the better side of people, so I really believed in his sacrifice in Chapter 5 and his tears for Gonta in Chapter 4. I liked how funny he is and an iconic liar to the end. I love his anti-hero type and I feel that he always does the things that no one else will do, and becomes the person others need - not want, but need to be. He's fun, childish, and funny with the robophobia. Because he's an anti-hero, I got obsessed with him and became all too curious. There are many things people speculate about his character, but the duality and blur make it all the more interesting, so it will remain a mystery... which fueled my obsession as a favorite character.

2 Shuichi Saihara

First of all, his design is pretty awesome. Probably 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 many of his friends have died, 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.

3 Kaede Akamatsu

Kaede is such a well-written character. She has so many flaws, yet a lovable personality at the same time. She always tries to help others, even if that meant killing someone. She's always kind and caring towards each and every one of her classmates. She'll always try and do good for them because she's that type of person.

Also, with a character like her, you would've never thought that she would have the intention to kill, even if it was to save the others. She definitely feels guilty, so even in her last moments, she focuses on making the others feel better, not herself. Truly an underrated character with so much good about her.

4 Ryoma Hoshi

Ryoma's character is so interesting because he is one of the only characters that accepts that the killing game will start and that he will probably not make it to the end. He's also a break from some of the overly happy characters from previous games who thought that a bright outlook on life could make things better.

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 too early. I cried.

5 Miu Iruma

Miu was the reason they found out about Kaede's plan to kill the mastermind because of the device she made to get the floor plan of the library. She was also the reason they could vote Kiyo for killing Angie and Tenko. She did numerous updates to Kiibo that helped them all in the trials. She literally schemed up a whole plan with the game world to forcefully log someone out (Kokichi) so she could kill him without anyone noticing. In the 5th chapter, Miu was the reason Kokichi's plan could even start, but he still ended up failing.

6 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.

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.

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.

7 Angie Yonaga

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 time together with her, no matter how, and I guess that's 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 lets anything bring her down. She always does everything for her own happiness and, to an extent, the others, which I find really great of her.

8 Gonta Gokuhara

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 him 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.

9 Kirumi Tojo

Kirumi is my favorite character out of all of Danganronpa or any anime/anime-styled game. Kirumi did everything she did to help others. She NEVER would have killed Ryoma under normal circumstances. She hates it when she is called mom, and I respect that, so I won't call her that ever. And she is just a really relatable person to me, and I LOVE her!

I just absolutely 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 though she was about to die. I wish she kept living on.

10 Kiibo

He's my second favorite Danganronpa character of all time. He's so sweet, and to this day, I do 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.

Kiibo touched my heart when he sacrificed himself for the survivors. He's definitely one of the best characters (in my opinion) and getting to know him in the game was a real gift.

The Contenders
11 Kaito Momota

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 than people realize.

12 Rantaro Amami

Well, we all thought this dude was going to 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. You 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.

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.

13 Himiko Yumeno

She's just so cute and adorable. I'm quite happy that she survived. I was hoping she would. Some people may think she's overrated because she talks about her magic too much, but I don't see a problem with it. Don't call me blind. I am just honest. And she's kind of helpful too. She also says she's Shuichi Saihara's new sidekick to make him feel better. That's one of the reasons why I love her, but there are more reasons why I like Himiko.

Wow, Himiko is incredibly underrated, and I never got why. Her character development in Chapter 3 is incredible, and how hard she tries to move on is inspiring. I assume people find her annoying as a comedic relief later on in the game, but I think the fact that she tries so hard to contribute at the end is the strongest impression she left on me.

14 Korekiyo Shinguji

Korekiyo Shinguji is my favourite character in the entire Danganronpa series. He's such a misunderstood character in terms of most of the fandom. People found him creepy right off the bat, but he's a really unique person and I genuinely like him.

A lot of people 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 outfit is based on his sister. She made that uniform for him and he wears it all the time because she's so important to him, and even after she died he was still permanently impacted by what she did to him and couldn't see what was wrong with it.

The only reason he's an anthropologist is because his sister wanted to become one, and as he's stated, she's the one who got him interested in it. He also spent some time at a village before where they basically abused him as well. Korekiyo travels a lot due to his anthropology and his goal to kill 100 girls just so his sister can have friends in the afterlife, which is another way she's affected his life even after dying.

The reason he killed Tenko and Angie was because he liked them and thought they'd make good friends for her, he didn't have malicious intentions at all. He even manifested a belief that she was still with him and was like another personality, which is also the reason why he wears his mask... more

15 Tenko Chabashira

Why is she at the bottom? Tenko is just a more aggressive Mahiru and Ibuki. Tenko being sexist and slightly a pervert is literally, again, Mahiru and Ibuki. She's sweet and cares for most of her classmates, with Shuichi, Keebo, and Gonta as exceptions (just slightly ruder to them), and likes to practice Aikido with Himiko and Shuichi. And do I have to mention how cute she is? I do like her cat-eye eyeliner and beauty mark, along with the color palette. Seriously, just like Tenko.

I love Tenko so much, and I wish I met her in real life so I can thank her because she takes care of Himiko really well. I kind of wish she was my mother because I don't like guys, boys, or men. I mean, she doesn't really deserve a chance. If she didn't want to switch with Himiko, she would have survived, but I guess she cared so much for Himiko since she let her talk with Angie :)

16 Tsumugi Shirogane

Even though I didn't really like her, I definitely thought (since I'm a 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.

I don't know, she's kind of overrated too, but yes, I think she deserved better because she's nice and kind to everyone. I actually know she was just doing that so she wouldn't be suspicious. That's all I have to say.

17 Monokuma
18 Monotaro

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

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

She was super smart and she did her job well.

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

She's so pretty, and that is why I love her. Also, her personalities.

20 Hiyoko Saionji

I don't understand why people don't like her! She's the same as Fuyuhiko in 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.

Why is Hiyoko here? Oh well, she's cool.

21 Nagito
22 Hajime Hinata
23 Mikan Tsumiki

Mikan Tsumiki is actually a really good nurse. I don't have time to explain honestly.

She looks so cute and was honestly just an interesting character.

24 Sakura Ogami
25 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.
