–Genocide Jack, Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc
Genocide Jack, known as Genocider Syo (ジェノサイダー翔 Jenosaidā Shō) in the original Japanese version, is one of the characters featured in Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc.
Genocide Jack has the title Ultimate Murderous Fiend (超高校級の「殺人鬼」chō kōkō kyū no “satsujinki” lit. Super High School Level Murderer). She is Toko Fukawa's murderous and sadistic alternate personality. She also once referred to herself as Genocide Jill as a joke, making a nod to her true gender.
She returns in Danganronpa 3: The End of Hope's Peak High School.
Genocide Jack's appearance is generally the same as Toko's, since they share the same body. However, some features differ: her irises expand and become red, and she gains/displays an abnormally large tongue over a mouthful of sharp teeth. She also tends to make wild, exaggerated expressions, giving her a much stronger presence than Toko.
According to Jack's reference art, she has a container for her scissors attached to her right thigh. In the Danganronpa spin-off game, her hair flows freely instead of being kept in braids and is slightly messier than Toko's.
Despite being a bloodthirsty and potentially very dangerous serial killer, Genocide Jack is mostly portrayed as comic relief in the Danganronpa series. She laughs a lot and sometimes pretends to be serious only to reveal that she is just joking.
Unlike Toko, Genocide Jack is very loud and outgoing. During Chihiro Fujisaki's murder trial she reveals everything about herself. She obsesses over Byakuya Togami, calling him "Master" in the English version. In the Japanese version, she uses honorifics in such as “-sama” which indicates that she has a submissive side - as this honorific is used primarily in addressing people much higher in rank than oneself.
She is quite lewd at times, not hesitant to harass Aoi Asahina over her figure or make inappropriate remarks to other characters. Jack is a self-proclaimed fujoshi and says that she only kills cute boys who 'turn her on'. She also seems to like yuri, though she says that she's not into girls. She has also been portrayed with both sadistic and masochistic traits.
She has a habit of giving nicknames to others; for example, she calls Makoto Naegi "Big Mac", "Mahkyutie" and "Macoco Chanel."
It is revealed in the final chapter of the first game that although Toko had her memories stolen, Jack still remembers due to the fact that the two personalities have the same knowledge, but not the same memory. When shown the images of the outside world, Jack identifies it as the aftermath of “The Tragedy”. Furthermore, it's revealed in Chapter 4 of Danganronpa Another Episode that she shares the same emotions and feelings with her alter and thus their relationships with their peers are shared between them.
Jack occasionally has a much more serious side in Danganronpa Another Episode. According to the limited artbook, "her attitude can switch between serious and crazy in an instant." She quickly nicknames Komaru "Dekomaru" and enjoys messing with her playfully, but doesn't seem to have any actual interest in her. In fact, at first she is annoyed with Komaru's trust towards a serial killer such as herself and has no interest in friendship, being angered by the mere suggestion. However, she eventually develops a softer side for Komaru and considers her a friend, being willing to protect her and actually listen to her and consider her opinions. She is also seen to have a respectful side for her alter, as she feels she has no right to accept Komaru's apology on Toko's behalf.
The friendship with Komaru has had a positive effect on both Jack and Toko. By the end of Danganronpa Another Episode and Danganronpa 3, it's implied that Jack has calmed down and doesn't kill anymore, only using her skills for good and to fight against enemies. During Chapter 4 of Danganronpa Another Episode, there is also a moment in which Toko is uniquely aware of what is happening despite the fact that Jack currently had the control, which may imply that the personalities have slightly begun to merge.
Ultimate Murderous Fiend
Genocide Jack is a professional serial killer who has never been caught since her first time committing a murder. She only kills handsome men that she and Toko are attracted to, always killing them in the same style: crucifying them with her custom scissors.

Prior to the Tragedy
Genocide Jack is a murderous fiend who killed any man she found handsome. She murdered all of her victims by crucifying them with her Genoscissors. Her calling card is writing the word "Bloodlust" in the victim's blood on a nearby wall ("Bloodbath Fever" in the original Japanese). Her victims were also written about in the Genocide Jack's secret book. In one of her free time events, she revealed that her very first victim was her/Toko's first love, one of her elementary school classmates who moved to Shikoku.
She states Toko's life in a repressed modern society caused her to develop Dissociative Identity Disorder, which created Jack as an expression of Toko's repressed emotions. In Danganronpa Another Episode, Toko revealed that Genocide Jack was the result of her rough and often neglectful home life.
Chapter 2 - Boy's Life of Despair
Genocide Jack first appeared in the second trial after Toko was forced by Byakuya to reveal her alter ego. Byakuya intended to frame Genocide Jack for the murder of Chihiro, but the murderous fiend pointed out that the apparent mimicry of her killing methods was "shoddy", as she refused to use anything other than her signature Genoscissors to murder and crucify her victims. She was further vindicated by the fact that she only targeted men she considered "handsome" - since Chihiro's secret had not yet been revealed to her at the time of his death, Genocide Jill would not have targeted him in the first place.
Chapter 3 - A Next Generation Legend!
Throughout the game, Genocide Jack would appear after Toko sneezed or fainted from the sight of blood, as noted when she follows the other students to investigate the third floor, the murder investigation and the third class trial.
Chapter 4 - All●Star●Apologies
She appeared again in Chapter 4 after Toko lost consciousness as she was shocked by the appearance of an injured Sakura Ogami - who was previously attacked by Yasuhiro Hagakure with a Monokuma bottle. Jack then took the same action as Hiro, she hit Sakura with a Monokuma bottle and it caused Sakura to lose consciousness again. Before she left the rec room (the crime scene), She cleaned the bottle fragments and placed them in a nearby trash can. During the trial, her honesty and the evidence presented on the several crime scenes proved her innocent.
Chapter 6 - Ultimate Pain, Ultimate Suffering, Ultimate Despair, Ultimate Execution, Ultimate Death
She and Toko survive the last trial and escape with other survivors at the end of the game.
Toko/Jack appear as the deuteragonists who aid Komaru in her journey to rescue Byakuya, utilizing her beloved Genoscissors in defeating Monokuma.
Chapter 1 - Crying for Love in Hell
Genocide Jack appears for the first time when Komaru lands on a building rooftop which was later revealed as a hospital after she fell out from the Warriors of Hope's base. She immediately defeated the Monokumas who came after Komaru and asked the person who she just saved whether she was "Komaru Naegi" or not.
After Komaru confirmed that she was Komaru, more Monokuma Units appeared from every side of the building. Jack then decided to bring Komaru to a safer place. She asked Komaru whether she knew Byakuya or not because she could smell his aroma from Komaru's Megaphone Hacking Gun. When a confused Komaru didn't answer fast enough, Jack begins a countdown, threatening that she'll cut her until she looks like mochi if she dosen't fess up by the time she gets to zero. Before she could do anything, she suddenly switched back to Toko.
Toko, who could now manage Jack, confirmed they were allies and that she would help her escape from the Monokuma unit. She explained that Genocide Jack had been completely tamed by her using a stun-gun and would not commit murder again like in the past, but she would only use the stun-gun when the circumstances were right, because if she used it too many times, it would fry her brain.
Chapter 2 - Legend of the Revolution
During Toko and Komaru's journey in the tunnel, suddenly an earthquake struck and made the ceiling collapse. Toko who collapsed after a big cracked rock hit her switched to Genocide Jack who quickly dashed back to the entrance followed by Komaru.
On the way, Monokuma Kids appeared and blocked their escape route. But they repeatedly withdrew from one point to another point after Genocide Jack defeats the Monokumas around the tunnel. At the very last second Komaru and Jack managed to escaped the destroyed tunnel. Komaru questioned why Toko's personality suddenly switch and Jack answered that when they go unconscious and sneezing could switch her personality.
After Jack sneezed and switched to Toko again, Komaru was suddenly depressed and wondered if she couldn't really escape from Towa City. Just before Toko could rally Komaru again like she did after Yuta Asahina's death, two Monokuma Kids approached them with a TV that connected to the Warriors of Hope's headquarters and Jataro Kemuri, one of the Warriors of Hope's members appeared on the screen.
Chapter 3 - Cute Girl's Battlefield
Toko switched to Genocide Jack when she was being apprehended by the Resistance inside a cell in Resistance secret base. She quickly broke out and visited Komaru's cell, only to find out that she was already gone. She encountered Monokuma Kids who gave her Komaru's hacking gun, her own stun gun, and a wristband GPS which led to Komaru's position.
Jack quickly arrived on the surface and wondered why the GPS moved so fast until she found a train driving fast on the monorail. She then broke inside the train in order to save Komaru.
Finally, Jack arrived at the room where Komaru was being tortured by Kotoko and she was able to defeat Kotoko. The train then flew off the track and hit a building. Komaru hugged Jack and apologized for the fight she had with Toko. Jack said that she has no right to accept the apology. She eventually sneezed and switched back to Toko.
Genocide Jack appeared again when Kotoko was about to be executed by Monokuma Kids after losing her fight with Jack and Komaru. Her reason to save her was to get some information about Byakuya's whereabouts.
Genocide Jack is shown helping Komaru take out Monokuma units. After teasing Komaru about her weight, Genocide Jack later saved Komaru from a Ball Monokuma, telling her that she knew Komaru was worried about her brother, but that she'll get herself killed if she ran straight into battle.
After Komaru and Toko reached Monaca Towa's secret headquarters, Toko changed into Genocide Jack, who stated they need to do this fast so she can "get to doing it" with Byakuya, she made more innuendos as she ran after Komaru into the building. After Monaca gave up on trying to stop Komaru and Toko and admitted that one of the Killing School Life survivors will die, Toko quickly shifted to Genocide Jack who told Monaca to spit out who will die. When Monaca asked if she was that worried about Makoto, Genocide Jack stated that she just wanted to know the answer. After Monaca told her she wouldn't do it, Genocide Jack attempted to kill Monaca, but was stopped by Komaru.
After some Monokumas popped up, the two prepared to fight, but instead they watched the Monokuma units lift Monaca's private room up and fly off. Genocide Jack, still wanting the answer, grabbed a hold of the flying van and demanded to know the answer. Komaru, who hopped on as well, told Genocide Jack to get down and Jack told Komaru to go down first. After Komaru stated that she won't go back without her, Genocide Jack agreed and fell down with Komaru, reverting back to Toko.
She and Toko are playable in the game's bonus mode.

Creation and development
According to the the character designer, Rui Komatsuzaki , "Toko is a unique character all by herself, but with Genocide Jack included we managed to make her 10 times more so."
"When I read the script, I naturally thought it would be incredibly tough to make such a severe personality change using the same character design, so my original plan was to base Genocide Jack on Toko's design but change it considerably. I fell back to the current transformation after being told having them look too different would be messy since she transforms back and forth so often."
Genocide Jack was decided to hide a weapon on her body from the very beginning, but the first idea was an orthodox one, like a knife. But, once the creators decided it should be in a holster under her skirt, Rui found a real scissors holster and her weapon was decided.
Together with Toko, Genocide Jack has the most facial expressions in the first game.
- Her Japanese name, which is unisex (but is most often masculine), is sometimes written as “Genocider Shou”, "Genocider Sho" or “Genocider Shō”. The Kanji used for "Syo" (翔) means "to soar" or "to fly high."
- Her English name “Genocide Jack” is a reference to the serial killer Jack the Ripper, while the name “Genocide Jill” is most likely inspired by the “Jack and Jill” nursery rhyme.
- Jack's Japanese voice actress, Miyuki Sawashiro, also voices her alternate personality, Toko, while her English voice actress Erin Fitzgerald also Junko Enoshima, Kurokuma, and Seiko Kimura.
- Genocide Jack is the only person to successfully interfere with an execution.
- In Danganronpa Another Episode, one of Jack's "smiling" sprites is awfully similar to that of Nagito Komaeda from Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair.
- Her usage of scissors and superhuman skills with them may be a reference to Mikoto Urabe of Mysterious Girlfriend X. The marks on her upper thigh revealed when she shows off her scissorwork also mirrors the technique of this character.
- Genocide Jack appears as a guest character in Chain Chronicle: Brave New Continent. Her Max ATK is 8740 while her Max HP is 7900. Her weapon is the Genocide scissors and its ability is doubled attack power. Her deathblow is called "Slash Lust". The continuous attack causes smaller damage six times and then ends with one slash of medium damage.
