In Chapter 4, Gonta was found guilty of killing Miu Iruma after he and the other students entered a virtual reality game to retrieve more information. It is later revealed in chapter 6 by the mastermind that almost everything about him, including his personality, along with everyone else's, was fabricated
Spoilers end here.


Appearance

Gonta is a very tall and muscular teen. He has a noticeably angular face, and long, messy brown hair. He has red eyes and round glasses.

He's wearing a brown suit, green tie, and no shoes. He has a bug terrarium strapped around him, matching the color of his tie.

As his appearance suggests, he has superhuman strength, but he claims that he's never killed a bug. His angry face is also especially fierce, supposedly due to his upbringing.

Personality

Gonta likes animals very much, especially insects, and he can even speak with them. He is a kind-hearted, very gentle, and polite person. He is very pure and naive, as he easily believes even strangers and he can get easily discouraged by other people's comments. He himself acknowledges that he is "not very smart", which is one of the reasons why he listens to other people so much. However, despite his gentle nature, he turns very angry if people are hating insects and he believes bug lovers can't be bad.[4]

In order to repay his woodland family, he aims to become a true gentleman. He wants to be useful to others, but he prefers not to do physical fighting and violence. He also gets very ashamed of himself if he does something a gentleman wouldn't do, like telling lies, losing his temper, making rude assumptions, seeing someone naked or half-naked, or accidentally touching someone inappropriately. It's noted that he isn't very gentlemanly yet, as he's a bit clumsy and sometimes gets controlled by sudden and strong emotions, but he tries very hard. He sometimes fears he might never become a gentleman.

Because he spent his childhood in the forest, he is lacking general cultural knowledge, and so he often has trouble speaking with the other students. This is made worse by his intimidating appearance. Because of his appearance, he doesn't like to start conversations and as a result when someone approached him, he would like to say "thank you" as in "thank you for talking to me."[5]

Talent

Super High School Level Entomologist

Gonta has been interested in insects since childhood. Because he was raised by animals in the forest, he can speak with them.

History

Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony

Gonta was born into a very rich and refined family. He used to play more with insects than people since childhood because the other kids were too intimitated by his appereance.

As a child, Gonta got lost in the woods while searching for insects. Thanks to being raised by a family of dinasourmen, he survived and learned to speak with animals and insects. Sometimes Gonta would find and be challenged by legendary fighters, learning a bit about their civilizations too. His adoptive family warned Gonta not the tell about their existence to humanity, so Gonta promised he wouldn't and began lying about being raised by wolves.

After 10 years, he was finally returned safely to his original family and he earned his Super High School Level talent.[6] Thanks the knowledge he obtained from his mountain family, he identified and catalogued insect species not yet known by humanity, strongly advancing his field of study. However, his family strictly reprimanded him for becoming wild and not elegant enough to uphold the family's name, blaming Gonta's mountain family. Gonta then decided he must prove himself by becoming a true gentleman in order to make his true family acknowledge his mountain family.

Chapter 1 - Me and My Class Trial

Spoilers start here.
After Monokuma officially started the killing game, Gonta reported to everyone that he found a manhole on the building behind the school's building that might lead to an escape. Once everyone arrived there, Gonta voluntarily and easily picked up the heavy manhole, which impress everyone.

After Monokuma presented the time limit motive, Gonta grouped up with Kaito Momota, Maki Harukawa, Angie Yonaga, Tenko Chabashira, Himiko Yumeno, and Rantaro Amami, and later headed down into the basement's game room. Gonta would lock himself in the AV room to watch a movie about insects, exciting himself enough to be ready to fight Monokuma before the time limit had ended. After the body discovery announcement had played, Gonta would rush into the library along with Angie, Maki, and Himiko, being the second group to discover Rantaro's corpse.

During the class trial, Gonta would later be suspected of killing Rantaro since he had locked himself in the AV room. He was quick to deny the claim, though when Tenko asked him to present an alibi, he asked where he could fine one, showing his lack of common knowledge. Kaede Akamatsu was quick to defend him, stating that he could not have gone out into the hallway since the door from the AV room into the hallway was broken and that he couldn't get out through there.

Gonta was reassured, but Kirumi Tojo pressed further, apologizing to him, but stating that she would do whatever she could for everyone's sake. She stated that he didn't need to open the AV room door all the way, just enough for him to fit his arm through it and use the folded up screen from the AV room as a pole to open the door to the library directly across the hall, and throw the shot put, which she claimed he could do with his immense strength presented when he lifted the manhole cover. Kaede however, would deny this as well since the moved bookshelf in the library would have been in the way of the shot at that time. As such, it would have been impossible for Gonta to murder Rantaro. Gonta was extremely grateful where-as Kirumi apologized for doubting him, to which he replied that it wasn't a problem and all done to find the truth. Later, when the crime was being pinned on Shuichi Saihara, Gonta was among the students to defend him.

When Shuichi revealed Kaede as Rantaro's killer, Gonta could not believe it. He could not believe that Kaede, who wanted everyone to survive and escape together, could kill someone. He was quick to defend her along with Kaito, but it was for nothing. After the voting had ensued and Kaede was found blackened, Gonta still couldn't believe it. When Monokuma and the Monokuma Kubs were quick to execute her, Gonta along with Kaito and Tenko rushed to her defense despite facing an Exisal, resolving to put their lives on the line if Kaede was willing to do the same for them. Kaede told them to stop however, telling them that she was ready to die, much to their dismay.

Following Kaede's execution, Gonta shed tears at her demise and considered her a good friend and a great person. He reassured Shuichi that if he needed anything, he can feel free to ask him before leaving the trial grounds with everyone else aside from Kaito and Shuichi.

Trivia

  • The katakana part of his first name "Gon" (ゴン) may represent the kanji "昆"; the meaning of which can translate as "a swarm of an organism" (such as bugs) while the kanji "太" simply means "fat" (though in names it's used figuratively as "healthy"). This makes the meaning of his first name something along the lines of "healthy swarm of bugs."
    • His surname Gokuhara (獄原) translates to "prison meadow". 
  • Similar to Gundham Tanaka, Gonta is rumored to be capable of speaking with animals, though Gonta's ability is supposedly much better as he was raised by wild animals.
  • Gonta is the youngest and tallest male character of Danganronpa V3.[7]
  • Because he lived several years in the forest, he rather walks barefoot than wears shoes.
  • He has never killed an insect.
  • In a poll hosted by MyNavi, fans voted Gonta the 12th most popular Danganronpa V3 student[8].
