Danganronpa V3 characters: a blonde girl with goggles

Wondering who all the Danganronpa V3 characters are? We’re here to help. 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.

Anyway, to dive even deeper into these strange worlds check out our Danganronpa characters, Danganronpa wallpapers, and Danganronpa games guides.
