Appearance

Kaito has spiked purple hair that's grown out both at the top and bottom of his head and a short goatee. His eyes are a warm lilac. He also has a slightly tanned complexion.

Kaito wears a tee shirt with a red design resembling a half of a face or a mask, on top of that he wears a long sleeved dress shirt with a breast pocket. On this shirt are black buttons which are currently not in use. On top of that, he wears a long, purple overcoat with a galaxy design inside it. However his coat is never worn properly, instead, Kaito wears his left sleeve and leaves the right side of the coat to drape over his shoulder. He wears purple pants matching his coat which are rolled up over his ankles. Kaito wears grey slippers with a strange, cloudy pattern.

In his promotional art, he's featured his entire coat draped over both of his shoulders, no slippers, and a mysterious pipe that resembles Kiseru.

Personality

Kaito is an energetic person with a passionate heart, who lives for dreams and romance. He believes you need to take risks for the sake of your dreams and should't limit yourself. [3]Due to his clichéd hot-blooded spirit and his document falsification he could pass the astronaut examination. It proves that he is smart, so one of the more promising points of the game is showing how he will use this characteristic power of him. He is also described as a reliable older brother.[4]

He has been described as an interesting and amusing person. He is heavily implied to be a comical character, sometimes having very over exaggerated expressions and reactions. In the casino, Monokuma can also tempt him to keep sinking his money into the slots, which implies that he could be gullible or easily addicted.

Being the Ultimate Astronaut, he harbors a great longing to go to space, which appears to be his dream.

It was the Monokuma Cubs who were controlling them, and would later explain that Kaito and the others were originally talented people who forgot their own talents.

Demo - Class Trial Ver.

Kaito is first seen inside the cafeteria along with Tenko Chabashira and Himiko Yumeno. When Kaito reveals he was cheating to become an astronaut trainee, Kaede Akamatsu becomes concern at him.

At first, Kaito had many disagreements with the Ultimate Caregiver. He was frightened when Maki suggested that he take on the Monokuma Cubs while in the Exisal form, and was angered when she pushed the blame for dividing the unity between the students onto Kaede.

Despite this, Kaito seemed to have taken an interest in Maki following the events of Chapter 1, nicknaming her "Harumaki" to her displeasure. She appears to be annoyed by him, however, as shown when Kaito attempted to embrace her after Tenko's demise (although this was only because she was coincidentally the person closest to him at the time), resulting in her punching him. He was still shown to care for her even after this.

Maki soon starts to show more care for Kaito during Chapter 4. She is furious when Kokichi knocks down Kaito following Gonta's execution, even going as far as to make threats, and is shocked when Kaito suddenly begins coughing blood. He also becomes one of the few people Maki will actually listen to, as shown when she attempts to strangle Kokichi in front of the other students, stopping only at Kaito's request.

In Chapter 5, the two join in the group effort to take down Kokichi, who was believed to be the Mastermind. When Maki attempts to kill Kokichi by shooting him with a poisoned arrow, Kaito purposely takes the hit to prevent her from doing so, and it is implied that he wanted to avoid her becoming the Blackened.

Kaito later commits the deed himself, and confesses to it during the class trial despite Maki tearfully begging him to stop. He stopped Maki from carrying out her threats to kill the Monokuma Cubs, and requested that she not cry for him before saying his farewells to her. Kaito eventually became the only one of Maki's companions that she had any genuine care for.

It's shown that Maki still remembers Kaito dearly after his demise. She feels thankful to him for saving her and the other students, and decides not to cry anymore, as Kaito requested. Although at first devastated after being told that her feelings for Kaito were a mere fabrication, she decided that this was not true and her feelings for him have always been real.

Spoilers end here.


Shuichi Saihara

Kaito feels eased and relaxed during the class trial in the demo because he knows that Shuichi, guided by his talent as the Ultimate Detective, will eventually discover the truth.[6]

These two eventually become close friends and come to share a brotherly bond. After Kaede's execution in Chapter 1, Kaito felt bad for Shuichi and decided to cheer him up. Kaito proclaims Shuichi as his "helper". He'll take responsibilities of Shuichi's investigations and deductions, so Shuichi should not worry about anything else but discovering the truth. It was shown that Kaito visits Shuichi often and invites him to hang out with him. They investigate together and helps one another. When Shuichi's stuck with clues in the class trial, Kaito helps Shuichi by motivating him and staying on his side.

In Chapter 6, Shuichi felt upset when he figured out that his and Kaito's friendship is part of the fabrication along with Kaito's personality. However, Shuichi felt motivated by Kiibo and believed that their friendship is true.

Spoilers end here.


Kaede Akamatsu

At first, Kaede is angered when Kaito informs her that he had broken the law in order to become an astronaut. However, he still supports her during the New Killing School Life.

Kaito is quick to defend Kaede's actions during Chapter 1. When Kokichi tries to persuade the other students that Kaede was forcing them into despair, Kaito becomes angered and assures Kaede that she was not at fault. After Kaede is revealed to be the culprit behind Rantaro's murder, Kaito cries and along with Gonta and Tenko, even threatens to fight for her life at first, although Kaede quickly puts a stop to this herself.
Spoilers end here.


Miu Iruma

Being the two loudest and outspoken characters, they get into disagreements. These disagreements can cause them to throw insults at each other. During the Danganronpa V3 demo, Miu calls Kaito a "flower-garden brained idiot." Because these two can get emotional, both can end up losing their tempers, with Kaito scaring Miu in the end.

Trivia

  • His given name, 解斗 Kaito, means "absolution of the Dipper [constellation]" - somewhat matching his space-related title.
  • His last name, 百田 Momota, means "one hundred rice paddies".
  • Kaito, along with Kiibo and Maki Harukawa, was one of the first new characters revealed for Danganronpa V3 in November 2015. However, their names and talents weren't revealed until ten months later in September 2016.
  • In his promotional art Kaito is featured with a pipe which highly resembles Kiseru, a Japanese smoking pipe used for smoking kizami, a shredded tobacco product.
    • It's worth noting that the smoking age in Japan is 20 years old. Meaning that Kaito may be engaging in underage smoking or is older than the rest of the cast similarly to Yasuhiro Hagakure

  • There are two interesting similarities between Kaito and Jin Kirigiri. The first being their similar hair colors (the color purple in general, being a distinction of the Kirigiri family thus far in the series) and the second being their relation to space - with Kaito being an astronaut and Jin having a space related execution - which, considering Junko Enoshima's tendency to execute people with "what is close to their hearts", implies that he too had an interest in outer space. Furthermore, Kaito's own execution is shown to be a newer version of Jin's.
  • In his love hotel scene, it's shown that in his fantasy he is an airplane pilot who wishes to defeat his sworn rival before going to space, but he has developed romantic feelings for them.
  • Kaito is the first character to die of a disease during a killing game.
