Ki-Bo is later revealed to work for Team Danganronpa, although he himself is not aware of that fact. After he and the viewers of Danganronpa in the outside world are convinced by Shuichi Saihara that Danganronpa should end, destroys the Ultimate Academy for Gifted Juveniles, seemingly ending Danganronpa and killing the mastermind as well.

He is given the title of Super High School Level Hope (超高校級の「希望」chō kōkō kyū no “kibō”) for his willingness to sacrifice himself for his friends.

Spoilers end here.


Appearance

Ki-Bo is a robot, having a fully mechanical body. Most of his body is made up of black metal resembling armored plating, and he does not wear clothes. He has two glowing spots on his chest, another two on his stomach, and two on his both wrists. His waist, which resembles a belt, has a glowing red spot on the each side of his front. He also has quite short stature.

While obviously synthetic, his voice and head resemble those of a normal human. Still, he has very pale skin and his straight, platinum blond hair appears unusually sharp for a human, including a very large ahoge sticking from the top. His blue eyes are also notably mechanical and there are thick black lines around and below them. It seems he can make his eyes glow and emit some sort of beam of light from his right palm.

Ki-Bo appears to have no neck, instead his "neck" consists of a large metallic collar. The collar appears to include a black screen with moving and glowing green text. He has headphone-shaped objects instead of ears, and they also include black screen and green text.

Later, it is revealed that Ki-Bo's ahoge is an antenna that receives information from Team Danganronpa, which will take the form of an "inner voice" and persuade him to take certain actions, said actions being decided through viewers' surveys.
Spoilers end here.


Personality

Ki-Bo is a polite and serious teenage robot, who has some trouble with human social interaction. Nevertheless, he takes pride in his form and sometimes boasts a little about his efficient functions, and his aim is to overcome being an ordinary robot. While generally well-mannered, he is angered by prejudice against robots and sometimes threatens to sue people who make "discriminatory remarks". He considers robots a minority group among humans.

Since he is a maturing AI, Ki-Bo learns and develops similar to a human.[6] While he has no heart nor brain, he uses his calculations to speak "as if he had a heart". Even still, he often can't read the mood around him and is oblivious to things, sometimes taking things very literally. Due to this somewhat gullible nature, he is an easy target for bullying and he is rather easy to read.

Ki-Bo seems to understand most of human emotions and many of their habits, though he can still get confused and a bit uncomfortable by his strange classmates or get some habits a little wrong. For example, like a human, he blushes when he is feeling shy and feels awkward when talking about something inappropriate. He can be very expressive with his body language, since as a robot he can move his ahoge and some other parts according to his emotions. Being a robot, he is also very innocent when compared to most teenagers, and some situations make him very nervous and shy.

In Chapter 3, he claims he is ticklish and it's implied that he might be able to feel pleasure similar to sexual pleasure. When he is asked about his ability to fall in love, he says he doesn't know because he hasn't had any romantic feelings yet. In the Bonus Mode, it's eventually confirmed that he can fall in love and want romance and intimacy.

Being the most durable member in the group, Ki-Bo is willing to protect the humans when needed and use himself as a shield against damage and harm, as he can survive hits that could kill an ordinary person. For similar reasons, he is normally unwilling to cause any physical harm to humans.

Ki-Bo hears voices inside his head and decides to listen to them more firmly after hearing Angie Yonaga's talk about God, treating his "inner voice" as his God who gives him advice and cheers for him. When his ahoge gets broken by Kaito Momota's execution, the voices get silent, forcing him to use his own logic. It's later revealed that his ahoge is actually an antenna that receives information from Team Danganronpa, which will take the form of an "inner voice" and persuade him to take certain actions, said actions being decided through viewers' surveys.

When forced to make his own decisions without the inner voice, Ki-bo proves himself to extremely forceful and pragmatic, choosing the school's destruction as the most efficient way of eradicating despair.

Spoilers end here.


Talent

Super High School Level Robot

Ki-Bo has a "maturing AI" that boasts advanced learning functions and recording functions. Similar to a human, he originally knew nothing and matured by learning. He uses calculations to express emotions, but he is very socially awkward when compared to humans.

He works with electricity, and thus he does not need to and cannot eat nor drink. He also can't sleep, but he needs to reserve time for charging. He is conscious while charging and needs to do it only once a week.

He was created to have many functions and lots of energy in a small body, and for a robot he is not very heavy, as he can be lifted up like an average human. He is not very strong either and is actually quite feeble,

Unlike some machines, he is waterproof and he's more worried about sinking like a rock than suffering from a short circuit.

He has an audio recording function, but refrains from using it regularly because of its extensive energy consumption.

Spoilers start here.
Ki-Bo, along with the other survivors, used Miu's inventions to cross the Despair Death Road. They came across a large metal hatch which they open up and discover the apparent state of the outside world. Shortly after, Kokichi Oma appears and proclaims himself to be the ringleader behind the game and controls the Exisal's to take Kaito Momota hostage in the Exisal hanger. Ki-Bo would later notice Himiko Yumeno bringing a black bag into the hanger, which would be an important witness testimony later on in the trial.

Ki-Bo would later join his fellow classmates in storming the Exisal hanger, only to find a body crushed beyond recognition underneath the press machine, the only clue as to who the victim could be being Kaito's sleeve where-as Kokichi is still missing. Everyone is horrified at the thought of having lost Kaito as the investigation begins.

During the class trial, Ki-Bo along with everyone else is still confused about their current state of beginning a class trial with two missing people, but Monokuma reassures them that it's fine and that the one missing person is "on standby in the back". When that supposed missing person arrives riding an Exisal, and supposedly pretends to be Kaito before revealing themselves as Kokichi, Ki-Bo, along with everyone else, believes that Kaito must have been the victim until later on in the trial, where the voice coming out of the Exisal changed to match Kaito's again. Ki-Bo along with Himiko and Tsumugi Shirogane believed that the victim could have been Kokichi and that the one riding the Exisal is Kaito. Although Shuichi Saihara and Maki Harukawa thought that they disproved this claim, it is later revealed that Ki-Bo was originally right near the end of the trial and that the one inside the Exisal was in fact Kaito.

Ki-Bo, along with everyone else, is rendered depressed, stunned and silenced at the fact that Kaito ended up being the culprit of Kokichi's murder. However, he reassures everyone to smile, send him off in style, and that he won't accept their tears before proudly accepting his execution, but choosing to die on his own terms and not Monokuma's. During his execution however, a bit of rubble was kicked up, knocking off Ki-Bo's "connector" to the outside world, making him unable to hear "the voice inside of him" any longer.

As everyone else left the class trial room, Ki-Bo made his way back to his Study Center and upgraded the equipment and weaponry there, enabling him to fly and shoot lasers, making him much more powerful than before. While everyone else is training in the courtyard to carry on Kaito's will, Ki-Bo takes it upon himself to destroy Ultimate Academy for Gifted Juveniles with his new weaponry in order to end the killing game once and for all.

Chapter 6 - Farewell Danganronpa

Spoilers start here.
Ki-Bo continued his viscious assault on the school, sending everyone else into a panic until Maki noticed him hovering up in the air. Everyone tried to get closer to him in order to call him down to talk, which he eventually does. When Ki-Bo gives the others his reasoning for wanting to destroy everything, Shuichi tries to talk him out of it and claims that it's possible they still have a place to go home to if the killing game is being shown to someone. Ki-Bo eventually gives in and decides to halt his assault on the school, but only until dawn, stating that if they cannot find the whole truth behind Ultimate Academy for Gifted Juveniles, he will destroy it. Following this, Monokuma and the Monokuma Kubs, riding their Exisals, arrive and threaten to destroy Ki-Bo for damaging the school and ending the Killing Game. Ki-Bo reassures everyone to find the truth while he engages the Monokuma Kubs in combat, fighting them the entire time everyone else is investigation the real truth about the Killing Game.

Ki-Bo eventually rejoins Himiko, Maki, Shuichi, and Tsumugi, his "connector" to the outside world being fixed, and decided to re-open Rantaro Amami's case after discovering new truths related to his murder. Once Shuichi revealed Rantaro's talent as the Super High School Level Survivor to everyone else, and proved that Kaede did in fact not murder him and was executed unjustly, he realized that the mastermind has to be one of them. By double-checking everyone's alibis during Rantaro's murder, Shuichi hones in on Tsumugi as the true culprit and mastermind of the New Killing School Life.

Ki-Bo along with the other survivors were confused and shocked that the Super High School Level Cosplayer could have gone through with such a plan while she denies the claim vehemently. Shuichi however makes it very clear that Tsumugi is the only person who could have murdered Rantaro by using the hidden passageway in the girls' bathroom, which led into the hidden room that connected to the library. She attempted to pin the blame on Ki-Bo since he was not present for when they interacted with Mother Monokuma, but Shuichi is quick to call her out on not giving the command of "birth" which would have triggered Mother Monokuma's voice recognition software and created another Monokuma. Ki-Bo along with the others watch as Tsumugi slowly breaks and re-introduces herself as "Junko Enoshima the 53rd".

Tsumugi, now cosplaying as Junko, went on to reveal that everyone's memories of being students at Hope's Peak Academy, the Gopher Plan, and shouldering their friends and families burdens as mankind's last hope, was all a false memory planted into their brains by the Remembering Light. In reality, everything they remember about attending Hope's Peak Academy and the outside world being destroyed was a lie. What they remember about Kokichi Oma being part of the Remnants of Despair was a lie as well, much to everyone's shock.

In reality, the circumstances behind their killing game are far more cruel. After proving her talent fully as the Super High School Level Cosplayer by cosplaying as some characters from Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc and Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair, Tsumugi revealed that everything has been broadcasted to a very peaceful world that has been enjoying watching the students of Ultimate Academy for Gifted Juveniles kill each other, essentially revealing everything that they've been through as a reality TV show and "Extreme Real Fiction". She also reveals that everything that took place in the Hope's Peak Academy Saga were nothing more than fictional events from a very popular anime and game franchise known as Danganronpa.

Ki-Bo, along with fellow survivors, were quick to oppose Tsumugi and Monokuma, but they both reveal that the participants of the New Killing School Life are also "fictional characters", whose memories, personalities, feelings, and talents were all fabricated in order to provide an exciting setting for the killing game. Tsumugi reveals herself as working for Team Danganronpa and goes a step further and shows Shuichi's, Kaede's, and Kaito's audition videos for the killing game, showing what sort of people they were prior to participating. Ki-Bo's fellow survivors become shocked at this sudden revelation and subsequently fall into despair.

Ki-Bo however, after hearing what "the voice inside of him" has to say, reassured everyone to not lose hope. Tsumugi corrected him and says that the voice Ki-Bo hears is the voice of the people watching this killing game and that he is nothing more than an interactive communication device and camera for the viewers to interact and participate in the game themselves. Despite this however, Ki-Bo refused to give up on hope and stated that the people in the outside world don't want despair. Tsumugi meanwhile refused to give up on despair and stated that a world that enjoys killings could not possibly desire hope. In true Danganronpa fashion, they decide to settle this with one final, special vote where Ki-Bo represents hope and Tsumugi represents despair.

However, Shuichi saw through the charade and cuts in, saying that neither choice is correct and that choosing hope would do nothing but cause the killing game to continue. Because of this, he decides to stop playing along and abandons his vote, hoping to end Danganronpa once and for all, much to Tsumugi's and Monokuma's chagrin. This causes Ki-Bo to question his feelings of wanting hope and doubt the voice inside of him that has guided him all this time. Eventually, Shuichi convinces everyone else, including Ki-Bo, to abandon their vote as well. In a last ditch effort to keep Danganronpa going, Ki-Bo is hacked by the audience. Tsumugi is proud to show that the audience does not wish for Danganronpa to end and explains that they supposedly deleted Ki-Bo's personality that kept getting in the way. Ki-Bo is able to take brief control again and told his fellow survivors that their choice is not the wrong one and that they can change the world before the hacking takes him over again. Despite Tsumugi telling the others that what they're doing is pointless, Shuichi refuses to give up, still exclaiming that he will end Danganronpa and that their lives are not just show-things for their amusement.

Confident that his voice reached the outside world through Ki-Bo, Shuichi and everyone else abandoned their vote. However, Tsumugi bent the rules one last time and abandoned her vote as well, which she revealed after everyone else did. Everyone is immediately confused and worried as to why she abandoned her vote as well. Tsumugi states that if they're going to risk their lives to end Danganronpa, then she will risk her life to make it continue. Tsumugi is confident that Danganronpa will continue after abandoning her vote, meaning only Ki-Bo's vote will have any power since he was still being hacked.

When Monokuma displayed the results of the final voting, she is shocked to discover that no one had voted, proving that the audience does not want Danganronpa to continue. Tsumugi panicked and tried to make everyone reconsider, but it is no use as the monitors all turn off, the audience no longer showing any interest. Tsumugi, upon realizing that Danganronpa was indeed over and done with, promptly loses all of her hope in living as she denied a world without Danganronpa, but had not prepared a proper execution before hand and as such left it to Ki-Bo.

Ki-Bo did not hesitate and proceeds to execute everything, killing Monokuma and Tsumugi, who waved at the camera with a look of disappointment on her face before being flattened under rubble inadvertently caused by Ki-Bo, ending the killing game for good. After making sure that his fellow survivors were still alive, Ki-Bo smiled, activated his self-destruct button, began flying towards the glass dome and explodes, promptly destroying the dome and allowing his friends to escape into the outside world.

Once the final execution had ended, the three remaining survivors, Shuichi, Maki, and Himiko, wondered why Ki-Bo had let them live since he was acting on the will of the outside world. Shuichi concludes that it must have been the outside world's will to let them live since Ki-Bo was acting on their will.

Demo - Class Trial Ver.

Ki-Bo was chased around in by Kokichi Oma in the storage room. He tried to protect himself from being touched by the Super High School Level Supreme Leader. After Kaede Akamatsu and Makoto Naegi entered the room, Ki-Bo introduced himself and told his backstory as Professor Iidabashi's creation. He proudly said that despite being a robot, he is a normal high schooler.

Before the class trial start, Ki-Bo found out that the stands was too few for eighteen people and Monokuma decided to get rid of two people. Ki-Bo who automatically voted out by Kokichi became flustered and asked not to decide something important all by himself. However, he eventually ended up become an observer alongside Rantaro Amami and didn't participate in the class trial until the end of the demo.

Relationships

Creator

Professor Iidabashi

Professor Iidabashi is Ki-Bo's creator and raised him as their own child. Ki-Bo mentions that the professor would desperately search for him if he went missing, proving how close they are.

However, in Chapter 6 Ki-Bo is revealed to be a creation of Team Danganronpa to monitor over the killing game and give the viewers a way to interact. Because of this, and considering that all the other participants memories were fabricated as well, it is unknown whether or not Professor Iidabashi actually exists and if he does he works for Team Danganronpa.

Ultimate Academy for Gifted Juveniles

Kokichi Oma

Kokichi enjoys to tease Ki-Bo due to him being oblivious and a robot, thus making him an easy target. Ki-Bo is very uncomfortable with Kokichi because of this and repeatedly asks him to stop.

However, Kokichi does not really appear to have a malicious intent, as he seems genuinely interested in Ki-Bo. His behavior seems more like ignorance and innocent bigotry, as he seemingly considers robots very interesting and "cool", but he thinks they aren't people and thus he does not treat Ki-Bo like a person.

Kokichi is seen being very excited about Ki-Bo, wanting to be friends with "the robot" and childishly chasing him in an attempt to touch him, seemingly not realizing that his behavior is offensive and condescending. He also curiously asks about how the robot functions, like asking about his private parts, and seems disappointed if the answers are much duller than he expected.

While Ki-Bo is usually quite well-mannered, he acts harsher towards Kokichi because of his constant discrimination. Considering him a "robo-racist", Ki-Bo thinks Kokichi should be just ignored, yet he almost never manages to follow this rule.

Because he is a robot, Miu took a special interest in Ki-Bo and even appears to feel sexual attraction towards him, though it's unclear if he is aware of this. As her talent would indicate as such, she would often perform maintenance on him, in a rather suggestive manner. It was shown that Miu is interested with Ki-Bo's talent and features since she went inside his talent research room without his permission.

Her intense personality makes Ki-Bo feel very shy and blushed a lot due to Miu's compliments and remarks, and Miu in turn thinks he is cute. Besides that, Miu added many new features to Ki-Bo, such as flashlight that came out from his eyes.

Ki-Bo was shocked when he discovered Miu's corpse in Chapter 4 and is only to still speak fondly of her even after chapter 4.

At first, Shuichi thought Ki-Bo was one of Monokuma's relative which he declined however. Shuichi was surprised how Ki-Bo was a robot and also one of his classmates.

During the Bonus Mode, in the love hotel, Ki-Bo wonders about the meaning of love and asks Shuichi to be his lover so he can learn about those emotions. The robot goes overboard with listing typical things lovers do together and Shuichi calms him down by saying that maybe they shouldn't be in a relationship if Ki-Bo doesn't truly like him. Ki-Bo turns unhappy and assumes he was rejected, but Shuichi tells him it's not like that. Ki-Bo then confesses that he might have fallen in love with Shuichi and wishes to exchange warm words and hold hands with him. They both feel nervous, but decide to hold hands, which makes them feel more calm.

Kaede Akamatsu

Although initially defensive about his robot nature, Ki-Bo decides that he is glad to be Kaede's friend after discovering that she is not a discriminatory towards robots. [7]

In the extra free time events, Kaede seems to be interested in Ki-Bo since it's her first time interacting with a real robot. Kaede is also curious in Ki-Bo's features and interrogates him. Ki-Bo was not aware of Kaede joking around since he finds human jokes very annoying. He states how Kaede is the first person who had ask many questions without hesitating towards him [8]

Ki-Bo would avenge her wrongful execution by killing Tsumugi and ending the killing game.

In the beginning, these two don't interact each other that much and acted like they barely knew each other.

In Chapter 6, it was shown that Tsumugi and Ki-Bo were in the same affiliation, Team Danganronpa. Tsumugi treated Ki-Bo like a toy and even bullies him for his actions in the trial. They officially became enemies when Ki-Bo believed in hope and Tsumugi cared about the show. When nobody casts their votes, Tsumugi trusted Ki-Bo to execute her along with Monokuma as well. Ki-Bo holds no hesitation to do that task since he was mad when she killed their friends and started the killing game with no hope. In the end, he made everything got destroyed and betrayed her by leaving the survivors alone.
