Best Students from Danganronpa V3: Killing HarmonyDanganronpa V3 is definitely my favourite in the series, and a massive reason why is because of how great almost the entirety of the cast is, and even though there are a few that I really don't like, the ones I do like are some of my favourites. As with any Danganronpa list, spoilers are everywhere.
The Top Ten
Despite how predictable it is to see Kokichi at number 1, no other character felt worthy of the spot for me. I find it really great writing when you can write a character in such a way that no matter how much you analyse them, you still can't exactly pin down their thought process. Usually with characters like this, you become hardwired to never believe anything they say, but in this case, I never knew whether he was being genuine or not. As well as this, his actions in the killing game were both more despicable and more crazy than Nagito, which is saying a lot.
Yes just yes he's a lying rat and I love that I love him he's literally my favourite in Danganronpa: Killing harmony nothing can change my mind
Holy moly, he could ACTUALLY not judge a person based on the first time they talk.
What an accomplishment!
Love him, he made the game really interesting with all his lies!
While a much less complex character than Kokichi, Rantaro has a surprising amount of depth to his character when you look into his free time events and basically every bonus scene with him. You can tell just how guilty he constantly feels about his sisters, and it is quite sad. His personality is why he's one of my favorites though, he's a combination of cool and kinda shy as well, and he was one of my favourite characters to talk with.
I feel like Korekiyo gets way too much hate, sure, he's an incestuous serial killer, but he's still a well written character, and I personally still love him, despite how... interesting he became. His personality throughout the game was one of my absolute favourites, and it genuinely annoyed me how everybody called him creepy. I never found him a creep in any way, his clothing is cool, and he was just an all around smart, calm person who simply loved humanity. His backstory is also really interesting. The not being creepy thing of course only applies until the reveal
The only one of the weird artstyle characters I like, as he's the only one who's treated as a genuine character instead of comedic relief. His free time events are some of the best in the series, as they're both a way of giving backstory, and having some fun while still developing a character. Everything about the way he died was also extremely tragic.
Definitive proof that you don't need a complex character for your character to be good. Despite how little we get to know about Miu, even with her free time events, I loved every second that she was on screen, as her weirdness combined with her sheer level of vulgarity make her very entertaining.
I find her to be a well developed character in general. The reveal as being an assassin was cool and her arc with Kaito and Shuichi was really nice. I don't really have anything negative to say about her.
Once again, I don't care what people say, I think that Tenko is a really good character in a lot of ways. I found her weirdness quite amusing and her kind nature to be nice in general. The way she became such a good character in chapter 3 is what truly made her a character that I liked. The only reason I wouldn't put her higher is because her Himiko shtick in chapter 2 was quite annoying and creepy, but not in the funny way like Kazuichi.
I feel a similar way about Himiko that I do to DR1 Toko, just not as strongly. I personally hated Himiko for the first 2 chapters, but then grew to like her after her arc with Tenko, only she didn't become as great as I found Toko to. I find her pretty funny and cute, with some lines that really caught me off guard, my favourite being when she was imitating Miu.
Amazing. No idea why he's in the bottom half, considering that he made an impact on me that no other character in the series has. I'll defend him until the day I die.
Kaito is definitely a divisive character in general. While he's extremely inspirational and cool in many ways, he also comes off as obnoxious at times, especially during chapter 4, where I just wanted him to shut up. For the majority of the time though, I really liked Kaito and found him to be a deserving character of the amount of screentime he got.
I don't like him anywhere near as much as Hajime, but I find him to be a worthy protagonist for the most part. The main flaws I see with him are his reason for being afraid of the truth to be really stupid, and his motivation being that some girl he liked was nice to him and then died thanks to her own plan. He definitely has the most growth out of the 3 main protagonists, but I still prefer Hajime overall.
Why is he so low? He is too pure for this world
This girl deserves more love
Why tf is she so low
why isn't he up higher-
