Top Ten Worst Danganronpa Characters

Characters can be DR1, SDR2, DR;AE or from the novel.
The Top Ten
Haiji Towa

Literal pedophile and a child abuser. Usually in this case I would like him as a villain, but that's just too much for me, sorry. And his writing wasn't even that good either.

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

Boring character, and also a pedophile.

Rot in hell Haiji

Hifumi Yamada

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

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

His character is literally just a woren out joke.

Boring character :/

Sayaka Maizono

I hate Sayaka and actually, I think she's the way to show how looks aren't everything and how first impressions are always deceiving (a.k.a a problem everyone at any age would be confused of). When she was first introduced, Naegi instantly developed a crush on her because he thought she was very "pretty" (mediocre at best :v) and that she was sharp with her intuition thing. In the games, most of the monolouges regarding her (or Naegi's weird crush on her, because sometimes It gets on my nerves) are about her lovely appearance or her amazing scent. She's also the SHSL Idol, being very popular and still a teenager and all. But now, here is when things get down:
She betrayed Naegi and tried to kill Leon although her plan backfired. She used Naegi's kindness and his feelings for her so she can kill Leon, another guy whose possibly attracted to her too and put all the blame to Naegi going as far as trying to do the whole "cute girl" act to get him to switch rooms with her. Basically, we ...more

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

Why she's lower than Ryota and Mikan?

Seeing Maizono high at this list makes me sing...

WE ARE THE CHAMPIONS MY FRIENDS! (I don't know what's the song name, but it's by the band Queen, right? )

Hiyoko Saionji

I honestly see so many people saying "iconic" and "she's a queen" and that really worries me. She's a bully, goes out of her way to trample crabs and squish ants, and she wasn't even that funny. Seeing her in UTDP made me upset, she was just insulting all of my favorite characters left and right. Now, don't get me wrong, maybe if she had better writing, and an actual character arc I would like her better, but she's probably one of my least favorites, second only to Haiji.

I hate her so much.
she loves to insult others (especially Mikan), but when someone insults her she becomes a baby
I hoped she would be executed and had a slow and painful death
Seriously, I think I've never been so happy to see someone dead, I blame Mikan for killing Ibuki, but I venerate her for killing Hiyoko
And what gives me most hatred of her, is to have discovered that she would be one of the survivors in place of Fuyuhiko, how they had in their head for even thinking about that possibility

This girl should be higher then maizono fight me
she bullied almost every female character
she never did anything besides being killed by mikan
she is a little boat

The whole game I was hoping she'd choke on a gummy

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.

Why did she survive?! It pissed me off seeing good and complex characters like Rantaro, Kaito and Kokichi die while this whiny brat lives. Hiyoko (I like Hiyoko) had reasons for her actions and explains them, she's the 3rd most hated character in the series. Himiko had no reasons for her actions and I'm with Kokichi when he said she didn't care about Tenko.

Akane, Kazuichi, Sonia and Yasuhiro get bashed for being useless, but why does this girl get a pass then? What did she do other than cry and whine about Tenko's and sometimes Angie's death and try to "help" Shuichi investigating Rantaro's lab while he could have done it himself and she didn't really do anything except talking even here. Outside of that, she likes to bully everyone. Hiyoko who did the same while having a backstory explaining why she acted the way she did is one of the most hated characters in the franchise, yet a boring sleepy loli who tells others to blow themselves off if they want to be useful is loved? What.

Boring character, she did nothing and she was quite annoying. She should be the blackened (murder someone) and she would be a way more interesing - not just a loli that is sleepy and boring 24/7

Tsumugi Shirogane

Thanks for killing 3 great characters Tsumugi! :) No one is happy with you

I hate this girl so much cause she is the reason why Kaede died during the killing due to the false accusation of murdering Rantaro when killed him herself. Also I find her pretty bland and her character sucks. Plus even though she's the mastermind I know she made the killing game unfair but she's the mastermind and she can do whatever she wants.

I don't like her. - OrangeRin

Shid and fard

Mikan Tsumiki

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

Fan service character.

Fan service central

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

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 😮

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

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.

Corrupted so many innocent people, destroyed the world, and people still like her?! She's a good villain, but not a good person.

Junko has charisma and she might not be a good person but she is a good character.

Junkyard Enoshima and her edgy terrorist organization.

Juzo Sakakura

This dude had the chance to PREVENT the disaster, but NOPE. He was too deep in the closet to REPORT Junko to Future Foundation.

The Contenders
Angie Yonaga

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

The only character in the series that I hate.

I get enough of religious nuts irl thank you very much

The only drv3 character I didn't like

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.

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.

I never thought anyone was worse than Junko Enoshima. But then came this over exaggerated Naegi clone who was more evil and sadistic than helpful.

I respect your opinion but Junko is worse, she caused the end of the world...

Nasty whipped cream boy. he can go live in a blender with his bagels for all I care, just get him out of my sight.

I guess having one personality makes someone be well written these days...

Yasuhiro Hagakure

I voted for him only to comment. He's sadly underrated. I feel like more people should like him. He may not be my favorite character ever, but he's far from my least favorite!

I HATED the fact he survived, literally ANYONE else could've survived, even Hifumi! At least he was (sometimes) helpful!

Wants to borrow your organs...

Boring and 2 dimensional .

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.

I quite liked her in the second game, but mostly because of her kind personality, not because of her interesting character. She was pretty bland and even characters that died earlier like the Imposter were more interesting than she was. I admit that in ch5 I found her somewhat more interesting with the reveal of her being an AI... But that's it. Her FTES were boring, even those of Teruteru or Hiyoko helped giving depth to them and learning things about them, Chiaki's were just ship bait (not as much as Kaede's though) and pretty boring. In the anime though I hate her. The qualities she had in the game that made me like her, such as her kindness, were barely present? It seemed like all the class started loving her for no reason after she did one small things for them and suddenly they'd fall to despair for her... And she was super uncaring with Hajime, never cared about his feelings but only her little video games, this is one reason I started hating Hinanami, I'm pretty indifferent to ...more

The definition of a mary sue. Why is Mikan above her? Mikan had good character backstory. Chiaki on the other hand didn't. We never rebutted ANY of her claims, and her death is number 3 on the saddest deaths. I felt no attachment to this character. In the anime, she's still perfect! She's confirmed to be a human in the anime. How did class 77-B fall into despair just by seeing her die?! Stop tearing down characters like Nagito and other females to prove she is best girl, if you bash other characters to prove she is best, maybe she isn't great at all.

She's just there for waifu fanservice and ship bait even though it would make more sense for Hajime to be with literally anyone else. She's way overrated. She sometimes comes off as kind of a bit ch too, like when Hajime walks by all beaten up and bruised after his encounter with Juuzo, she's just standing there with her console like "hi wanna play gamu" and gets upset when he declines but she doesn't even care that he's all beaten up? You HinaNami fans should stop bashing on other Hajime pairings, because most others actually care about him unlike this Mary Sue.

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...

Kotoko Utsugi

Didn't expect her to be this high

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

If he weren't such a pervert I really would've loved him - rawrxyy

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

He's terrible and selfish but I still love him

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

Something's suspicious about this guy...

Maki Harukawa

Typical overly violent girl in Japanese media of whom everyone is scared of yet they also adore her and praise her all the time. Why do people like characters like that? Where's the appeal? Her FTES didn't help her in fact since it's just repeating what she said in the game making them boring (and if you did her FTES before then it makes the whole rehash of her backstory in the game boring as well). She doesn't hesitate to kill or threaten others and she directly led Kaito and Kokichi to their deaths, along with trying to kill everybody else and going behind their back making her an untrustworthy, betraying, lying th0t. She's not better than Kokichi whom she hates so much. Why did she live again?

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?

Only cared about Kaito, had no issue getting innocent people executed, all because she hated Kokichi. Stop bashing Kokichi because Maki hates him.

The only thing she has that is good is her character design.
Her complete character is just so used in fiction already that she didn't come to me as an interesting one. Character development? Sure there was some, but it was completly ruined with the 5th trial withher wanting to sacrifice everyone just because of her own greed against kokichi.
She's selfish and boring.

Touko Fukawa

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 :/

So annoying. I wish she didn't survive.

Trash, enough said.

doo doo

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?

Every time I see his stupid face I bang my fkng head on the table! I hate him so much! He should've died in chapter 2 instead of Ryoma!

Gets miu, gonta, and kaito killed and people like him?
looks like a purple booger that deserves to be smeared on a napkin

His fans made me hate him ;-;

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.

Tenko Chabashira

Sexist little m0r0n, enough said. She's not just innocently childish, little girls might criticize boys at times but they don't go wishing them dead or insulting them constantly. Her master is arguably at fault, but she should know better.

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.

I'm sorry, but this girl... She's just so annoying! She says all males are creeps blah blah blah when she herself makes Himiko uncomfortable with her obsession with her, she's just a hypocrite. She didn't really do anything in the game besides helping an equally useless and annoying sleepy loli to develop. She's also inconsistent: one time she'll be sharp enough to infiltrate Angie's Council Student to "protect Himiko", another time she's so naive and guillible that she believes all males should die because her master once told her to not be near males. Make up your damn mind! Glad she was killed off.

She was obsessive over Himiko and tried to follow her to the bathroom, asked to spit on her face, and many more actions like that, and continued to act like that even when Himiko told her to stop.

Extremely gullible and stupid too, considering in her FTEs she actually believed when her master said that "men drain her power". I know not all characters need to have a tragic backstory, but when you hate an entire gender and want said gender to die, that's pretty overboard.

The only time I liked her was when she was giving Himiko advice by saying that she should express her emotions more and kickstarting Himiko's character development.

She's just a crappy character.

Miu Iruma

If Teruteru was a bully. Yet, since she has a big chest, everyone worships her... Sure she was useful, but how useful a character is doesn't make them likable.

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?

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

Makes sense.

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

Kaede Akamatsu

Finally, someone else that dislikes Kaede. Everyone always says that she's "a precious angel" but she had murderous intentions, even if it was towards the mastermind. I know she's not a mary-sue, she's actually far from that, admittedly, since her flaws literally lead to her death, but she just gives off major mary-sue vibes in my opinion. Everyone likes her in both the game and in the fandom, and I don't really see the appeal. Admittedly, she's starting to grow on me a bit, but she's still far from my favorite.

Kaede is... I don't know what to say. She's pretty okay overall, and her sacrifice was admirable, but I couldn't bring myself to care for her sacrifice more than the deaths of the other characters. I can't make myself love her more than the other protagonists, she's not unique just because she's a girl (and I liked Shuichi as protagonist much more than her too). Her FTES made her worse, they don't give depth to her or help us learn more about her, they're just ship bait. This is one reason I hate Saimatsu (the love hotel is another, she was too annoying and manipulative in this I swear. And Shuichi acted too he doesn't like her more than he likes, say, Kirumi or Rantaro for example). Along with this, Kaede has a kind heart. But she can also be so mean, judgemental and annoying at times. Which is another reason I don't really like her and don't think she's worthy of all the praise she's getting. Honestly, she's the worst female lead in the series to me, even Chiaki is better.

Not unlikeable, but overrated. Even in the game everyone loves her so much even though she was just rude and forceful most of the time. Her sacrifice was admirable, but so was Gonta's, Kaito's and Kokichi's. and no one licks their back as much as they do for Kaede. The game wants you to like her, but I don't see any reason to care for her more than I care for other characters. Plus, she still attempted murder. Stop painting her as a lovely angel.

Overrated. She's Chiaki but as a pianist. I wished people would start paying attention to the other sacrifices characters made, pay more attention to Gonta, Kaito, and Kokichi's deaths. She isn't an angel, attempted murder, don't care that it failed, she still tried.

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.
