Saddest Danganronpa Deaths

A list about saddest deaths in Danganronpa series. Anime, games, manga... It was so hard to make a list since I felt sad after all of them. Warning! This list contains a lot of spoilers!

The Top Ten

1 Peko Pekoyama Peko Pekoyama

Come on! This is one of the rare deaths that has affected me in an anime/game. Her relationship with Fuyuhiko was both surprising and emotional. Also, her execution had a big meaning. She told Monokuma that she will never feel despair since she's just a tool. However, she died by believing that she killed the person who meant her life. - Tuana123

2 Chiaki Nanami Chiaki Nanami

She didn't deserve this

Despair arc: Episode 10
Man, I can understand why her death leaded everyone to despair. Her effort to survive, her last talk with Hajime Hinata/Izuru Kamukura... She had a deep character development from a shy girl to the hero who gathered all the class together. I won't be able to talk more :'(
Please Insert the Coin was a sad execution too. I mean, she didn't even do anything wrong and she decided to reveal her identity in order to save others. However, her death in 3. season was a way better! - Tuana123

3 Leon Kuwata

All his fault was to trust somebody. As result, BAM! You've been attacked and you have no choice but to kill. The execution was so realistic and horrifying. - Tuana123

4 Gundham Tanaka Gundham Tanaka

A kind-hearted person who pretends to be evil. At the end, he sacrificed his life in order to save everyone from starving to death in the Funhouse. His execution was so peaceful too. He knew he's going to die but he protected his cute hamsters anyway. Also, he was sent to the heaven as his hamsters mourn for him. - Tuana123

5 Chisa Yukizome

I want her to be my teacher! She's a magical person. She always had faith in her students as always. She always protected them and made them friends. And the reason she turned into an Ultimate Despair is that she wanted to save her class. - Tuana123

6 Sakura Ogami

A warrior whose final action ultimately prevent another murder and aided in causing the most insane person ever conceived to die.

I didn't like her as much as Chihiro or Celestia, but she was the only death that I bawled my eyes out for. Make her higher! (And Chihiro and Celeste as well! ) (And also bring down Sayaka because she's a backstabber and Leon because he didn't do anything important.)

Oh, I can't believe I've forgotten to add her... - Tuana123



7 Izayoi Sohnosuke

Ruruka didn't deserve this angel

He's the best boyfriend of all times. He was betrayed by his girlfriend but he forgived her. He just loved Ruruka more than anything else and understood her more than anybody else. That's why it's sad :'( - Tuana123

8 Seiko Kimura Seiko Kimura
9 Chihiro Fujisaki

Why would a person deserve to die because of her -I mean his- secret? He was weak so he was bullied for all of his life. Thus, he disquised as a girl in order to avoid his weakness. When he wanted to face his weakness and get stronger... - Tuana123

10 Ibuki Mioda Ibuki Mioda

The Contenders

11 Sayaka Maizono Sayaka Maizono

Honestly, I think Maizono's death was one of the least sad ones. Call me heartless, but I just hate this character. When she runs out crying when she saw that video of her friends she should've calmed herself down while assuring herself that everyone else were also going through the same thing, heck possibly saw a WORSE video than her! People said that her reaction was human but In reality, humans are able to think before they act! If I was her, I would sob a bit but I certainly WOULDN'T go as far as running out crying and treating other students as tools for my own benefits. And what triggers me the most Is how Naegi forgive her for trying to get him killed! And she's also treated as a hero after knowing her plans whereas Leon was forgotten. - MLPFan

At first, you hate her for what she had done to Leon and Makoto. However, if you think about it, she isn't that bad at all. She got insane due to the video about her friends. She was always hesitating and that's why she died. She was so regretful at the end. - Tuana123

12 Ando Ruruka

She's actually a misunderstood character. And her brutal way of dying shows how regretfull she was! - Tuana123

13 Kaede Akamatsu Kaede Akamatsu

Of course we all grew attached to Kaede. We were PLAYING as her for the first chapter for crying out loud! The saddest part was that she died for a murder she committed with the intention of saving everyone from the killing game, only to murder the wrong person instead. She definitely didn't deserve such a brutal execution.

I felt bad for her - MLPFan

14 Kiyotaka Ishimaru

A great guy, who just wanted to see his bro once more. he didn't deserve to go.

15 Mikan Tsumiki
16 Juzo Sakakura

He cared for Munakata and he was ready to do anything for him. More than love, he admired him -I think. At the end, he was killed by Munakata since he thought that Juzo betrayed him. However, Juzo couldn't bring himself to hate Munakata and with his last strenght, he saved everybody from the Final Killing Game. - Tuana123

17 Nekomaru Nidai

He protected Akane at the cost of his body. He also sacrificed himself at the Funhouse!

Rest in peace, strong man! You were so good for this world... - Tuana123

18 Nagito Komaeda Nagito Komaeda


19 Kirumi Tojo
20 Momota Kaito

Can't believe this one isn't #1 yet
