Top Ten Worst Danganronpa Characters

Characters can be DR1, SDR2, DR;AE or from the novel.

The Top Ten

1 Haiji Towa

The worst danganronpa character ever. Any DR character over Haiji Towa

Boring character, and also a pedophile. - Danganronpa


Just because ew

2 Hifumi Yamada

He was boring. - OrangeRin

He's a gross perv.

He's just completely boring, useless character in my opinion. - Danganronpa

Now, Yamada can be a little funny at times. But, he is neckbeard. He draws porn for a talent.

3 Hiyoko Saionji

Annoying bully, no need to explain.

Bully. - OrangeRin

Miu done wrong

She's annoying

4 Sayaka Maizono

I honestly couldn't stand her.
The only good thing she contributed to was bringing me one of my personal favorite executions.

Am I the only one who didn’t hate her? - GenericUser

Frick sayaka - Danganronpa


5 Himiko Yumeno

Even if Haiji is a pedophile he at least was interesting. This annoying little female dog on the other hand, never did anything interesting. She had development, but it was actually frustrating seeing this useless character transforming into Hiyoko with red hair and taking importance. At this point, I knew she wasn't going to die, and it frustrated me to no end. I got really agitated seeing likable characters dying one after the other but her staying alive. If she was JUST useless it wouldn't make her more detestable than Bandai or Akane, but on top of all she also has an extremely unpleasant and unlikable personality. She is, as I said earlier, just like Hiyoko, a bully. And we had to put up with her for 6 chapters, an entire game. A total disaster.

She live in the end of the game and it just what did she do in the game? I thought she was going to die because how she look

Himiko existing makes me unable to think and do things like a normal person can.

I love her.She is cute and funny U.U - OrangeRin

6 Tsumugi Shirogane

I don't like her. - OrangeRin


Fix it

Shid and fard

7 Mikan Tsumiki

Fan service character. - OrangeRin

She's so whiny and annoying and I just couldn't stand her!

Fan service central

She was just fanservise.
Not even that good.
I think a nurse could have had some potential, instead of Mikan.

8 Ryota Mitarai

Not gonna lie, I am highly disappointed that he is this high. Sure, he may have been a 'bland character' and sometimes "too antisocial," but he was bullied in his childhood, making him shy. He just wanted to save the world, and too all you Chiaki fans crying "RyOtA KiLlEd My WaIfU," seriously stop attacking and blaming him. People never blame Junko, when she was the one that caused all these deaths y'all cry for. She is only loved because of her looks and how cool they think she is. Junko was the one that killed Chiaki by manipulating Ryota to do the anime. Mitarai is my favorite character in DR, so this pisses me off that he is up here. He shouldn't even be on the list.

Wow! I don't expect that Mitarai number 5 😮

9 Juzo Sakakura
10 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


First game,she was a great enemy. But then it got boring. - OrangeRin

We get it your evil - Danganronpa

Okay she has her charms but there is one thing that pisses me off. She has no real motive. She just wants to plunge the world into despair because she's just an empty void inside. Give me a break. If she was so empty inside why not just save everyone's time and lives by deepthroating a shotgun.

The Contenders

11 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.

Why is nagito here? He was one of the best characters - GenericUser



He was such a creep and made me feel really uncomfortable. I did not trust him and did not want him around. His character concept was very creative but he was a terrible person whose twisted beliefs put everyone's life in danger multiple times. If I were on the island with him, I'd tie him up and throw him in the old lodge as well.

But doesn't that prove how good/effective of a character he is? Characters don't have to be liable as people to be well written and you yourself admitted how uncomfortable he made you felt, exactly what the story was going for. - Mellowix

12 Angie Yonaga

The only character in the series that I hate.

Such an annoying character LOL I can't STAND THIS ATUA CRAP - Danganronpa

Hate her on so many levels, I was happy when she was gone.

The only drv3 character I didn't like

13 Yasuhiro Hagakure

Wants to borrow your organs... - buttersock

14 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.

Mary Sue character - GenericUser

Chiaki in SDR2 might have been a little boring, but at least she was likable, even if she kinda did steal the spotlight for others. DR3 Despair Arc was a complete hassle to sit through because of her. Not everyone has to revolve around her for making viewers like her - if you force a character down people's throats too much, it will be hated. Fuyuhiko and Mahiru didn't even seem bothered by their sister/best friend respectively dying, but fell to despair because of Chiaki's death? Same with all the class, like seriously were their lives so boring to revolve it around her? Hajime transformed to Izuru because of her solely? If you thought she was a Mary Sue in SDR2, wait till you see her in DR3...

As many people have already said EXTREMELY BLAND. She's just boring, not interesting and kind of Mary Sue. She doesn't have any flaws, problems and even if she has one she solves it right away. It's annoying how many people consider her "the best girl", even if there are so many characters better than her. Kyoko was portrayed a lot better and unlike Chiaki has flaws. So many characters are a lot better in DR2 and I just really don't like this girl. Sure, some people say that she's kind and sweet, caring, loving etc. But it's the same thing, one personality trait. Her flaws? Her fans say, that "She has problems adapting to other humans and she's socially awkward" and despite that she still became everyone's best friend in DR3 and even became class rep. Now an conclusion: I hate her, she's really boring and doesn't deserve all that attention, that she gets.

A mary sue! I can't stand mary sues at all.

15 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.

I find him really annoying and disgusting! I was so happy that he got executed in the first chapter!

He was literally just in the game to be a tutorial and to get eliminated right away. - Danganronpa

icky - Danganronpa

I find him TeruFrying

16 Kotoko Utsugi

Didn't expect her to be this high

17 Byakuya Togami Byakuya Togami 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 Affluent Progeny.

He's terrible and selfish but I still love him - rawrxyy

Tell me again why he gets to live to the end?

He's just a dickhead from beginning to end. It doesn't matter how much development he had, he just pisses me off.

Something's suspicious about this guy...

18 Maki Harukawa

Maki was so annoying. She was an actual Mary Sue, more so than Kaede- I'd even say more than CHIAKI because at least Chiaki wasn't praised for trying to kill everyone over some pathetic revenge against one person. She was also selfish and annoying, cared only about Kaito and no one else. The fact that she was shoehorned into the main trio sucks, too. Her "friendship" with the MC feels too forced and she is just so annoying! The worst thing is that she gets to live in the end! Ugh... Is there something worse than this?


She had potential but it was taken and shoved down a sewage pipe because of chapter 5. She sucks as a character in all honesty.

Selfish, cruel and boring Mary Sue.

19 Touko Fukawa

doo doo - DeathOfficials

So annoying. I wish she didn't survive.

I'm sorry to the people who like Touko'a character but I just don't. Shes always squealing over Byakuya and never cares about anyone else. Also shes too quick to accuse someone of being the culprit, I just really dislike her :/

Trash, enough said.

20 Kokichi Oma

For the people who hate him because he got Miu killed: You realize she tried to kill him first... Right? Or are you too blinded by her breasts?

His fans made me hate him ;-; - OrangeRin


I’m a proud kokichi hater haha - GenericUser

21 Tenko Chabashira

Tenko is such an annoying character. People praise her for being a "good character", how is hating one entire gender and wanting them to die BECAUSE your master told you once to not be near men being a "good character"? Even Gonta isn't that stupid... I hate sexism in all its forms, and this girl is not exception. I was so glad when she was killed off.

She is a very good character,
You guys should play or watch her free events. - OrangeRin

She's basically off brand ibuki

I was so glad when she was killed off, wish it could've been sooner though.

22 Ultimate Imposter

Never liked the twist that Fat Togami was an imposter. Felt like a massive cop out and a cheap way to get an emotional reaction at the start of the game, especially seeing as he changed so much for the better since DR1.

23 Celestia Ludenburg

This is disappointing. Celestia is well developed, unique, and interesting character. She is my favorite character. Rven though she a liar, it is entertaining to watch

24 Miu Iruma

This character combines the worst in Teruteru (a pervert), Hiyoko (a bully) and Mikan (the fanservice). How do people like her so much if the aforementioned characters gets so much hate for being perverts, bullies or fanservice? Just because she has breasts?

The worst are those who demonize Kokichi for bullying her and Gonta for killing her. Do you realize she directly caused everything bad that happens to her and perfectly deserves it all?

She is a girl Teruteru. I don't understand why people love her that much. - OrangeRin

She is more of a pervert than an inventor. - SirSarcasm

People complain about Hiyoko being a bad character because she bullies people, but when Miu does it, its fine.

Makes sense.

25 Mahiru Koizumi

Typical sexist m0r0n, for who men should be flawless protection machines and women should be fragile beings waiting for their prince charming to rescue their worthless self. Frick Mahiru Koizumi and frick this poor vision of the world as well.

It doesn't matter if you think she "didn't mean it, it was irony", she still bullied males for not being strong enough to protect her defenseless useless self.

It doesn't matter if she's a "tsundere" (She'd be a tsundere (so, in love) to 8 guys? ), she's mostly an annoying person who bullies others for not sharing her poor vision of the world and being flawed. Most fictional female characters under the Tsundere trope are awful people anyway.

It doesn't matter if she's "the motherly character", so is Kirumi and she never bullied males for having flaws. Plus, teaching others this kind of poor vision of the world really rubs me the wrong way. She shouldn't even be a mother of anything, the guys she's bullied should have told ...more


She never did anything wrong...she died too early to do so...
She's a very underrated character and I really like her.

Cannot stand her. So glad she was killed off early.

26 Gonta Gokuhara


Take him off please.

I love his grammar. - SirSarcasm

Why is my precious gentleman on this list

27 Korekiyo Shinguji

Chapter 3 ruined his character, - OrangeRin

I can live with his whole creepy vibe, I can live with his overly edgy design, I can even live with his whole bdsm thing. but INCEST? no thank you, I can't defend that.

He killed Tenko and is creepily obsessed with his sister like, what?!

He's creepy!

28 Chisa Yukizome

Why is Instructor Chisa here?
She was super cute and encouraging! She was outgoing, and she could handle the class very well. And If I were in her class, I would be greatful to have a good teacher like her!

29 Kaede Akamatsu

Makoto with breasts. Yet somehow people say she's "so different" from the others protagonist. Yeah sure. The only different thing she has from them is that she has breasts. Also, if you need to bash Shuichi and even Makoto sometimes, and completely ignore Komaru's existence to prove Kaede is "the best protagonist", then maybe she isn't that good to begin with.

Hated her. She was insane and wasn’t fit to be a protagonist.


30 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.

He makes me angry


31 Kyoko Kirigiri Kyoko Kirigiri, a character from Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc, is a student of Class 78 in Hope's Peak Academy, who also participates in Monokuma's Killing School Life. She is the Ultimate Detective.

Okay, here we go. I hate this character. She is a plot device the developers throw at you when they are out of their depth. Her reaction to findingher dad's bones is comical, shes not even upset to see a close relative dead. No matter what relationship you had, good or bad, if you find a family member dead, you're going to be upset. Not to mention that in Chapter 5, she relys on Makoto's submissive and rather pushover personality to allow her to live while he is put to his death. Isn't that exactly what Sayaka does, yet her character who I really enjoyed, receives large amount of hate? Her relationship with Makoto is so far shoved down the players throats, it feels fake. It's almost game breaking how much of a, and I hate to use this term but, Mary sue she is. All the characters love her even though she has no emotion and is willing to risk her friend's life for her own gain. There is so much more I can say but I'm sick of talking about this waste of a good design. Whops - BigShyGuy

Kyoko is great. I love her. - OrangeRin

I hate her

I loved this character!

32 Kazuichi Soda

Aah, this is very unpopular, but I hated Kazuichi. It was close, I was stuck between voting for Chiaki and him. There was literally nothing to love about him for me, and he contributed next to nothing in the trials! Some characters, like Ibuki and Sonia can get away with that, due to their loveable personalities, but Kazuichi didn't even have that! He was nothing more than an annoying, useless character. I was quite upset he was made one of the survivors, because I hated him the most. I couldn't stand his obsession with Sonia, which, by the way, was the most irritating thing! I mean, come on! She obviously wasn't into him, yet he kept trying to win her over, and gets upset when she interacts with Gundham? It's totally clear how she doesn't like him. His entire character, to me, was very useless and bland, I expected him to die in the first of second trial! It agitated me to see the interesting, likeable characters dying, and this dude just stayed alive through the E N T I R E thing! ...more

33 Sonia Nevermind

Bruh she garbage, she's all sweet and all but she annoying - DeathOfficials

She is a precious girl and she doesn't deserve to be this low

Sure she is a nice character, but god, I haven't even seen her help in ANY of the trials- not even o ne.

Positive but just a useless character

34 Shuichi Saihara

Kaede's breasts fan put him here, lol. They don't want to admit that she's just a copy paste of Makoto, so they say he's a copy paste of the others despite being different.

Alright, who put Shuichi here? I thought he was a pretty good protagonist, especially compared to the last two we got. He doesn't feel like he's just the character the player controls, he feels like his own character with his own thoughts and likes and dislikes and personality, and his design is much more interesting than Hajime's and Makoto's.

Come on guys he was a great protagonist- - OrangeRin

He has no dick

35 Monaca Towa

Pickle Satan

UGH she is so annoying and acting innocent

36 Gundham Tanaka

I'm kidding he is best boi

37 Makoto Naegi Makoto Naei is the protagonist of the 2010/2014 game Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc. He is the Ultimate Lucky Student, a student randomly picked by Hope's Peak Academy to join the school. As a student of Class 78, he is forced to participate in the Killing School Life, a killing game orchestrated more.

Yeah he's really overrated. He's the reason danganronpa 1 was just okay and not as great as the other games.

Literally the worst and most boring protagonist ever. - Danganronpa

38 Ibuki Mioda

"Random = Funny" the character


Just plain annoying :T -Rosalina

Come on she is a freeking loli with daddy issues, Like come on and I don't agree with this list. Sorry. But Ibuki is one of the WORST Danganronpa characters in V2

39 Chihiro Fujisaki

Let's see, why exactly is Chihiro on this list?

1. He created Alter Ego, who almost saved everyone.
2. He saved Naegi.
3. He's adorable.
4. He's smart.

Need I say more?

His character development could've been a lot better. Instead we got a whiny crybaby who literally did nothing to further the plot besides creating Alter Ego. I feel as though many people only like him because of his design, not his character. It would've been better if he actually became a bit more manly, like what he wanted.

40 Ruruka Ando

She's an annoying spoiled brat with some sort of princess complex or something. I hate her.

I hated her. - OrangeRin

Yes she is Saionji but worse

She's also a brat

41 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)
42 Hajime Hinata

Shockingly bland. izuru is much better.

43 Akane Owari

Although I kinda like her, let's be real, her character development is mega poor. I'm surprised to see that kazuichi and sonia are on the list but not akane. She is USELESS. WITH A CAPITAL U. Kazuichi at least was useful in case 4. Sonia has that love triangle thingy going on (which I don't find particularly interesting but there are people that do) + being the only foreign character. But akane? Like Asahina and Mikan, she's just a fanservice character.

44 Seiko Kimura

Bitch was worst girl ever. She deserves to die in a fire.

She did nothing wrong uh... - OrangeRin

45 Monokuma

Guys Monokuma should be at the top of the list.
