Danganronpa characters

The Danganronpa series has seen plenty of characters caught up in its twisted murder mysteries, although they haven’t all lived to tell the tale. Here is a list of all the male and female characters in each of the main Danganropa games.

Danganronpa was a revelation when Trigger Happy Havoc was released back in 2010. A compelling murder mystery delivered as a gorgeous visual novel with Ace Attorney gameplay elements made for one of the most unique experiences available on consoles.

In the years since more and more unsuspecting students have been roped into robot bear Monokuma’s evil game with each new installment in the series.

All in all, the Danganronpa games have dozens of different personalities to meet and get to know, so here’s every single one split into male and female characters.
