Hifumi Yamada (山田 一二三 Yamada Hifumi ) is one of the characters featured in Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc. He has the title Ultimate Fanfic Creator (超高校級の「同人作家」Chō Kōkō Kyū no "Dōjin Sakka"). He was a famous doujin author who was able to sell ten thousand copies of his work at the culture festival in his school. He also claimed to favor 2D girls in comparison of 3D ones, though his attitude around them proved otherwise.
Hifumi is a chubby boy with black hair and a pointed ahoge. He also wears glasses. He is dressed in a white shirt with an orange tie which has a blue arrow at the tip pointing upwards. Hifumi wears a grey, unbuttoned cardigan over his shirt and carries around an orange backpack. He wears black trousers and white trainers.
Feeling misunderstood by his peers and resenting them for it, Hifumi comes across as creepy and perverted, possibly due to his tendency to make an innuendo over some things that other students said; a trait that creeps Leon out. He also has a habit of putting anime references in his speech. In his Free Time sequence, it is shown that he is very passionate about Buuko, a female lead in his favorite anime series, Heretic Angel ☆ Mochi Mochi Princess. Although having a somewhat misanthropic look on society, Hifumi will not stand for indecent crimes against those he holds in deep regard and will even go so far to kill the persona to stop them from doing any more harm and avenge his friends. He has a particular dislike toward people who supposedly don’t understand the true meaning of doujin, even going as far to claim that they’re ruining everything. His dream is to ‘save’ other people by making a doujin that will inspire them to create their own.

Prior to the TragedyEdit
Before Mankind's Most Despairaging and Malevolent Malefaction, and before his own introduction to anime and doushinji, Hifumi was heavily involved in his middle school's student council, similar to Taka.
High School Life of Mutual KillingEdit
During the first investigation, Yamada was revealed to be the janitor, with the key to the garbage room. He was asked by Makoto to open the shutters so the two could investigate and discover a bloody shirt piece (Leon's) and a shattered ball that was used to turn on the incinerator through the shutters.
Hifumi later developed a crush on the artificial intelligence created by Chihiro - Alter Ego. This one-sided relationship annoyed Taka and as a result the two clashed frequently. This dispute was taken advantage of by Celeste, who stole Alter Ego and convinced Hifumi that it was Taka who stole it. Celeste enlisted Hifumi as her accomplice (who thought that Celeste was his), by telling him that Taka took Alter Ego and was planning to kill Hifumi. The two frame Yasuhiro by putting him in the Justice Robo (ジャスティス ロボ Jasutisu Robo) suit, and make it look like the robot was responsible for both Hifumi's and Taka's "deaths" - when in fact Hifumiwas only pretending to be dead by putting transfusion blood on himself. After bringing himself and Ishimaru's body to the Art Storage Room, Celeste finishes the plan and kills him. After the Class Trial, Celeste states that Hifumi never suspected that he would be the next victim to be murdered, and thought that Celeste would kill someone else instead.
Watch Out, Booko! Great Monster Invasion - A gigantic Booko comes flying to a place where an enormous Monokuma is rioting at. Both start fighting. Hifumi, who is stuck between them is being hit from both sides. At the end, he dies when being hit by ‘certain kill’ beams from both simultaneously. This is only described in the official Visual Fanbook.
Hifumi seems to be friends with Makoto, often attempting to educate him on doujinshi.
Early on, she intimidated him, but he succumbed to her charm, essentially becoming her pawn.
He developed a crush on the AI due to it listening to what he has to say. Alter Ego itself was not interested in Hifumi, though. He also referred to Alter Ego as a female, despite the fact that it was modeled after Chihiro Fujisaki.
