Best Students from Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair

The characters from this game are in general better than in the first game. That said, there are still characters that are definitely better than others. As with anything even slightly related to Danganronpa, spoilers below.

The Top Ten Best Students from Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair

1 Gundham Tanaka

His character personality was really interesting, especially how he was a breeder and looked nothing like one. Because of that, he probably the funniest moments ever. Seeing him die just made my friend and my heartbreak, he even sacrificed himself in a way. He was a very good interesting character and seeing him die was very sad. But I'm glad he was able to live longer than the rest.

Any fiend that dislikes him is darker than Tanaka the Forbidden one.

I can relate to his style and personality, he is a young man who loves animals and is just a great student in general, he should and will be forever in my heart, he is half the reason I call my hamsters (I only have three, one for each sibling) my Dark Doers of DESTRUCTION!

Of course the SUPREME OVERLORD OF ICE is thje best character uwu - Danganronpa

2 Nagito Komaeda Nagito Komaeda (狛枝 凪斗 Komaeda Nagito), is a student of Hope's Peak Academy's Class 77-B, and a participant of the Killing School Trip featured in Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair. His title is Ultimate Lucky Student.

Nagito is definitely the most complex character in the game, with his strong beliefs about hope to the various things his free time events reveal. His fear of getting close to anyone and his inferiority complex all make sense when doing these events. The only reason he isn't at the very top for me is because he was really annoying during trial 4. - kempokid

If I say anything about Nagito, I will be murdered. - Mario_Deluxe

Obviously the best character ever!


3 Fuyuhiko Kuzuryuu Fuyuhiko Kuzuryu (九頭龍 冬彦 Kuzuryū Fuyuhiko), is a student of Hope's Peak Academy's Class 77-B, and a participant of the Killing School Trip featured in Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair. His title is Ultimate Yakuza.

I always find it great when someone goes through a complete arc in this series (maybe because it's only happened a couple of time). Fuyuhiko's transformation from obnoxious guy who was way less cool then he thought, to friendly person who actually cared about others was something that was amazing considering he survived the entire game. - kempokid

Fuyuhiko went through a lot of character development, and I even liked him before the second trial. He reminds me of someone from wings of fire, considering they’re both pretty much tsunderes and both of their names mean Winter. His Yakuza status and being the largest Yakuza’s heir is really cool. It also caused pressure on Fuyuhiko, making him believe he had to be better than everyone else and that he had to work to earn his position. I don’t know if anyone is dedicated enough to read on, but if you’ve mad sit this far, I suggest you just watch a character analysis or you can just keep reading. Him being snappy and threatening was just a cover up to mask who he really was. But he also meant a lot of his threats, and was just a lil angry midget over all. His character development in the second trial really got him “spiced up” as a character, proving how much he cared for Peko and that he really did have redeeming qualities. It also proves that he isn’t a selfish brat, ...more

4 Ibuki Mioda

Ibuki is a strange character to me, she doesn't contribute to the plot at all, but her personality is so perfect that you can overlook this. The constant subtle music references mixed in with her cheerful nature and her lack of coherence in conversations really make her entertaining to speak with. - kempokid

Ahh she’s precious ;/; I love her appearance in personality..she is caring and sweet and needs to be #1

5 Hajime Hinata

Hinata was wonderful and made me the happiest gamer ever when he went super sayain.

From the start, I found him to be much better than Makoto, the main reason for this is that he didn't spend 3/4 of the game saying that he was useless, which annoyed me in THH. His massive development in chapter 6 was also a major reason why I find him to be such an amazing character in the game - kempokid

He is best boy and will always be best boy.

6 Chiaki Nanami Chiaki Nanami (七海 千秋 Nanami Chiaki), is a student of Hope's Peak Academy's Class 77-B, and a participant of the Killing School Trip featured in Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair. Her title is Ultimate Gamer.

Chiaki Nanami is a truly great character and has never truly betrayed anyone and she didn't kill Nagito Komaeda she was executed for being a traitor even though the final chapter proved she wasn't that bad and actually sweet, I wouldn't put her as my number 1 because there is one HUGE flaw in her character that just ruins her character (not to offend anyone), she lacks emotion a LOT and that can be because she is an AI but she is actually a real character in the real world but she was killed that's why. She is kinda like a kyoko kirigiri, also not to mention future foundation is actually not bad and actually an ally so its not bad thinking that she is from future foundation

I personally fin her to be the Kyoko of this game, i.e a decent character that is wildly overrated. She helped a lot in the trials and her reveal was heartbreaking, but as a character for most of the game, she was just... there with constant video game references coming off as annoying rather than funny. - kempokid

7 Sonia Nevermind

It's nice to have a nice, pleasant character among the distrust and hatred that these games can be full of. Her serial killer obsession was great and getting angry at Kazuichi never failed to get a laugh out of me. - kempokid

8 Peko Pekoyama Peko Pekoyama (辺古山 ペコ Pekoyama Peko), is a student of Hope's Peak Academy's Class 77-B, and a participant of the Killing School Trip featured in Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair. Her title is Ultimate Swordswoman (超高校級の)

Just go through her fte, and you get a lot of character development out of it. Despite just being Boss Baby’s hitman, She has a lot of personality under her thinking of being a tool. Her belief in being a tool itself is interesting enough, and she’s really cool as a swordswoman.

Best girl y'all really need to read her ftes if you think she's bland

She basically contributed to nothing until her final moments, but that made Fuyuhiko a better character, rather than her. Her plan was really clever though - kempokid

Best girl! deserved so much better to be honest, I also wish she had more screentime

9 Nekomaru Nidai

Sure, he may be loud, but I love him. I find him to be a really funny addition to the game, as his brand of stupid humour somehow works. His transformation into Mechamaru is also one of my favourite moments in the game. His free time events also nicely flesh him out as an actual character. - kempokid

10 Kazuichi Soda

I don't understand why people say he did nothing in the game, he was like Hiro, but useful. His perverted nature was genuinely funny as he got more and more ridiculous in every chapter and both the camera in chapter 3 and fixing the lift in chapter 4 made him actually be useful. - kempokid

The Contenders

11 Mikan Tsumiki

I think I rated her way too low in hindsight, she is one of the better characters in the game, she's got some good depth to her character and her reveal was well executed. I'd put her higher than Sonia - kempokid

I just feel sorry for her. Mikan was such a sweet nurse, willing to help anyone who's hurt. If it wasn't for the disease that made her remember the time she was brainwashed by Junko, she wouldn't be forced to kill Ibuki and Hiyoko.

12 The Ultimate Imposter (A.K.A Byakuya Fatogami)

Despite only being around for one chapter, he really made an impact. His kind nature was a great contrast to the Byakuya from the first game, and his obsession with food was priceless. His free time events also made him one of the best characters, shame he was only around for 1 chapter. - kempokid

13 Mahiru Koizumi

She was nothing during her time I the game. She was just there but without anything interesting about her apart from being kinda rude to men, but even that was boring. When I don't feel any emotions when someone dies in this game, then the game screwed up. Also, she wasn't even some kind of motherly figure like the game seemed to say she was, she is the most boring character in the game. - kempokid

14 Akane Owari

My least favourite character in the entire series by far. She had an annoying personality and contributed nothing in the game despite being a survivor and having so much stuff happen to her. She got the despair disease, but instead of it doing anything that could develop her character, she just constantly cried. When she nearly killed Nekomaru, she cared about it for around 5 minutes. When Nekomaru actually got killed, Minimaru was made and Akane seemed to deem it an acceptable replacement. As well as that, why was she a survivor? The other games had survivors that actually mattered, but there was no reason for her to survive to the end. - kempokid

15 Hiyoko Saionji

Her character feels like a missed opportunity to me, instead of being so rude to everyone, I think that she would have been more entertaining if she just had her creepy tendencies like she did at the start with the ants. I am happy that she started to change in chapter 3 though. - kempokid

HiYokO ShOUld Be HigHer

Words cannot describe how glad I am this bitch is dead - GenericUser


16 Izuru Kamukura

Its bad Hajime :D he's back...

OwO Daddy Boi

17 Teruteru Hanamura Teruteru Hanamura (花村 輝々 Hanamura Teruteru), is a student of Hope's Peak Academy's Class 77-B, and a participant of the Killing School Trip featured in Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair. His title is Ultimate Cook.

His entire character was being a pervert. The only reasons he isn't my least favourite character is that I felt slightly sad when he died, and his "AVRIL LAVIIGNE" part was hilarious. - kempokid
