Special Crime Investigation Unit

Ikue helped to introduce Misaki Asano, a new recruit to the division, with her role as an investigator within the department, though Ikue was sceptical that Misaki had what it took to deal with the extreme cases of the SCIU. Ikue partnered Misaki with Takumi Hijirihara, and assigned them their first case acting as security for Momomichi Ito. After Misaki came to Ikue, struggling to deal with Takumi's quirks, Ikue explained to Misaki that Takumi was a survivor of the Giboura Massacre, which led to his strange behavior and strong feelings about murder. Takumi later murdered Momomichi Ito, and left a letter behind for Ikue and the SCIU from his alter ego, Killer Killer.

Ikue is briefly seen at the end of the chapter, calling Takumi in a state of emergency, claiming that "Mukuro Ikusaba broke out".
When Shūji Fujigawa attempts to mortally wound Misaki by piercing her in the back, Ikue shows up alongside Juzo Sakakura, Ruruka Ando, and Sonosuke Izayoi in order to stop the chaos. She scolds Shūji for trying to harm a member of the Future Foundation. Ikue using her two long needles as her weapon managed to corner Shūji with Juzo and Sonosuke's help.
Suddenly, Shūji detonates a bomb and makes a quick, unseen escape. Whilst doing so, it seems that he managed to slip a shiny, metallic collar onto Misaki's neck.
Takumi is one of Ikue's investigators. She knows many things about him others don't, and keeps many secrets about him. She is aware of his past, and states he cares about murders more than any of her employees.
Misaki is one of Ikue's investigators. Ikue seems to show slight concern for her as shown by the fact that Ikue worries the murders they solve would be too brutal for her. The two seem to get along well.
Mekuru is one of Ikue's investigators. Ikue seems to recognize Mekuru's talent and is not phased by it, she appears to know that Mekuru and Takumi have a relationship closer than co-workers.
Ikue appears to have a distaste for Shūji after he attempted to murder Misaki, a fellow member of the Future Foundation.
- "As you were informed. Here at the Special Incidents Investigation Department...We are in charge of incidents deemed too abnormal or bizarre. Specifically mass murder...Jigsaw murder...Lust murder...cannibalism etc. Simply put, we specialize in gore."
- The kanji for Ikue's last name (堂上) can translate as "Hall Above" - possible referencing her job description being higher up then her investigators.
