A talented cosplayer has lifted Peko Pokoyama straight out of the world of Danganronpa and brought her to life with an incredible representation of the “Ultimate Swordswoman.”
The Danganropa franchise kicked off in 2012 with visual novel Trigger Happy Havoc, and since then has become infamous for its terrifying gameplay and storylines that see players investigate murders, search for clues, and take part in deadly trials as they try to track down who the killer is.
The series has gained a cult following, with many obsessed with the characters found inside these stories, and cosplayer ‘Snailcos’ has become the latest to show off their appreciation, breaking out an incredible version of Peko Pekoyama from Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair.
Incredible Peko Pekoyama cosplay
In the second Danganronpa, Pekoyana is a stern and serious woman, with a keen interest in martial arts and an incredible talent with swords, earning her title thanks to her skill. She’s rarely seen without a bamboo sword slung over her shoulder, ready to be brought out to practice at any moment.
Of course, Snailcos made sure to include this in her incredible cosplay, holding a sword just like Pekoyama’s and posing in her Hope’s Peak Academy uniform, complete with the same school jumper that she wears in the games, and making sure to ditch the blazer, just like the Ultimate Swordswoman does.

Snailcos has made sure even the finest of details are perfect, completing the look with the same red lipstick that the character wears, ribbons in her hair, and the dark-framed glasses that complete Pekoyama’s look.
Even her mannerisms are perfect, making sure not to smile in any pictures, as Peko herself claims she doesn’t know how to smile, forgetting how to because she didn’t think it was necessary to show the emotion as a child.
