Danganronpa is one of those wonderfully strange videogame series that everyone in the world should probably try at least once. Taking the visual novel genre in new directions, it’s a bit like Phoenix Wright but sent through some wormhole into a phantom zone where reality is just a little bit less “there”, and darkness subsumes pretty much everything.
If that doesn’t intrigue you, maybe learning about the many Danganronpa V3 characters will. Seriously, you should play these games. Anyway, to dive even deeper into these strange worlds check out our Danganronpa characters, Danganronpa wallpapers, and Danganronpa games guides.
Danganronpa V3 character list
Here you can find all the Danganronpa V3 characters but be warned, spoilers lie ahead.

Gonta Gokuhara just loves bugs. The Ultimate Entomologist, he abhors violence and wants to protect everyone. He eventually murders Miu in the virtual space, though this was a trick by Kokichi. He’s then killed by wasp stings. Poor fella.
The pretty laid-back Ultimate Mage, Himiko Yumeno is a fan of simple magic tricks. After a close friend’s death, she moves on to a more optimistic outlook and ends up as one of the three survivors.
The Ultimate Robot, K1-B0 is a simple AI-controlled machine with a big love of robot rights – but everything changes later in the game as he begins to ponder deeper philosophical topics, before going crazy. Turns out the series creators planted him there to liven up the show a bit.
Kaede Akamatsu is the Ultimate Pianist, so dedicated to the piano that her friends think she’s a freak. She joins the game with the hope of getting everybody out, planning to kill the antagonist of the game, only to accidentally end up killing someone else. She’s hanged, and then everyone finds out she hasn’t killed anyone, it’s just the antagonist framing her.

The Ultimate Caregiver, Maki Harukawa grew up in an orphanage, and that’s why she hates children so much. This goes against her title, but it’s later revealed she is actually the Ultimate Assassin, having left the orphanage to live with a group of assassins. She’s one of the three survivors.
