Spoilers start here.
Keebo was a part of Team Danganronpa, an organization who created a famous reality show involving Killing Games known as Danganronpa. He was created by the company as the camera or the connector for the audience from the outside Killing Game. He was controlled by them during the Killing Game via his ahoge, which true function is to take the form of an "inner voice" and persuade him to take certain actions, said actions being decided through viewers' surveys.

However, it is unknown when Keebo was created and participated in the Killing Game himself. It is implied that he participated in at least, two Killing Games hosted by Team Danganronpa, the 52nd and the 53rd Killing Game. Shuichi Saihara deduced that Keebo was used in the 52nd Killing Game and was executed, where the form of the execution is to participate in the 53rd Killing Game known as the New Killing School Life.

Keebo's memory of being a part of Team Danganronpa was erased and fabricated where he believed that he is a creation of Professor Idabashi, whose identity is unclear whether he worked for Team Danganronpa or not. Initially, he had no knowledge nor awareness, but as a maturing AI he learned and developed as his creator raised him like an own child. Eventually, the professor even sent him to attend Iidabashi Industries High School (光星国際アカデミー) and he was recognized as being Ultimate even as a robot. However, he fears that other students will discriminate him because he is a robot.

Keebo and the other student's past were heavily fabricated by Team Danganronpa. This memory of them centered around an event called as The Gopher Plan, a plan initiated by Hope's Peak Academy's Headmaster, Makoto Naegi that in Ultimate Academy for Gifted Juveniles Saga was nothing more than a mere non-exist event and a fabrication. Keebo was able to have a complete recollection of the event after it was triggered by the Remembering Light in Chapter 5.
The Gopher Plan V3 Kids

In the complete memory shown by The Gopher Plan, it was told that Keebo and the other fifteen students were actually students in Hope's Peak Academy who were immune to the sickness caused by the falling meteorites. Hope's Peak Academy staff requested that the sixteen of them participate in a project known as The Gopher Plan, where the students should seek refuge in another planet as the last surviving humans.

Not wanting to abandon their loved ones, Keebo and the other fifteen students tried to escape from this plan, ultimately leadin to an event called the Super High School Level Hunt, where the sixteen of them were hunted down in order to forcefully making them participate in the project.

The Gopher Plan Fake Deaths

Once they were captured, the government began spreading false information, saying that Keebo and the other fifteen students had died. By doing so, they managed to calm down the Super High School Level Hunt while providing protection to those sixteen students, including Keebo.

Keebo and the others blasted to the space in a huge colony ship, which is the true form of the Ultimate Academy for Gifted Juveniles itself. Kokichi Oma, who declared himself as a member of Junko Enoshima's Remnants of Despair, said that he is the mastermind behind the Killing Game who let Monokuma entered the spaceship, effectively forcing Keebo and the others to participate in the Killing Game.

Gonta lifted the cover

After Monokuma officially started the 53rd Killing Game, Keebo and the others tried to find a way out by investigating a manhole inside the boiler. Keebo volunteered himself to open the heavy manhole, but his power alone is not enough to lift it, much to everyone's disappointment. Nonetheless, he was impressed that Gonta Gokuhara could lift the manhole easily.

Keebo is among the many students kidnapped by Gonta Gokuhara in Chapter 2 to take part on the "Insect Appreciation Club". He saves the group from the situation by using his audio recording to prove Gonta was being deceived by Kokichi Ouma. He is later used by Gonta and Tenko Chabashira as makeshift hammer to break the water tank containing Ryoma Hoshi's skeleton.

Iruma fixing Ki-Bo

In Chapter 3, Keebo's function was upgraded by Miu Iruma who voluntarily wanted to add more functions and tool with his robotic body, which Keebo let her to do so. One of his additional function upgraded by Miu is a flashlight emitted from his eyes, which later become useful in the third murder case investigation.

Keebo joins the Ultimate Academy for Gifted Juveniles' Student Council after Angie Yonaga convinces him that his inner voice is God.

Keebo would later notice Himiko Yumeno bringing a black bag into the hanger, which would be an important witness testimony later on in the trial. He also joined 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, Keebo 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, Keebo, 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. Keebo 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 Keebo was originally right near the end of the trial and that the one inside the Exisal was in fact Kaito.

Keebo, 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 Keebo's "connector" to the outside world, making him unable him to hear the audience's voice.

Keebo about to go on rampage

As everyone else left the Class Trial room, Keebo 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, Keebo 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.

Keebo continued his viscous 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.

Awakened K1-B0

When Keebo gives the others his reasoning for wanting to destroy everything, Shuichi tried 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. Keebo 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.

K1-B0's attacking the academy

Following this, Monokuma and the Monokuma Kubs, riding their Exisals, arrive and threaten to destroy Keebo for damaging the school and ending the Killing Game. Keebo 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.

Uncovering the Truth

Spoilers start here.

Keebo 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 Ultimate 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.

Keebo along with the other survivors were confused and shocked that the Ultimate 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 Keebo 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. Keebo 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 Ultimate 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.

Hope or Despair

Spoilers start here.

Keebo, 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. Keebo's fellow survivors become shocked at this sudden revelation and subsequently fall into despair.

K1-B0's introduction as the SHSL Hope Robot

Keebo however, after hearing what "the voice inside of him" has to say, reassured everyone to not lose hope. He later received the title Super High School Level Hope Robot (超高校級の「希望 ロボット」chō kōkō kyū no “kibō robotto”) for his spirits in keeping hope to move forward. Tsumugi corrected him and says that the voice Keebo 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, Keebo 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 Keebo 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 Keebo 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 Keebo, to abandon their vote as well. In a last ditch effort to keep Danganronpa going, Keebo 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 Keebo's personality that kept getting in the way. Keebo 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 Keebo, 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 Keebo'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 Keebo.

Keebo 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 Keebo, ending the Killing Game for good. After making sure that his fellow survivors were still alive, Keebo 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 Keebo 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 Keebo was acting on their will.

Creation and Development

Name


His name is a pun on the Japanese word for "hope" (希望, kibō). His Chinese name is "機望" (jīwàng), which sounds very similar to hope in Chinese, "希望" (xīwàng). It also carries another pun, with 機 () meaning "machine" or "mechanism", relating to the fact that he is a robot.

In the original Japanese, his name is pronounced as "Ki-Bo" (キーボ). However, "Kiibo" is the correct spelling, as "ー" is used in Japan to denote a repeated vowel.

Alternate Fates


In New Danganronpa V3 - Trial Version, Keebo was chased around in by Kokichi Oma in the storage room. He tried to protect himself from being touched by the Ultimate Supreme Leader. After Kaede Akamatsu and Makoto Naegi entered the room, Keebo introduced himself and told his backstory as Professor Idabashi's creation. He proudly said that despite being a robot, he is a normal high schooler.

Before the class trial start, Keebo found out that the stands was too few for eighteen people and Monokuma decided to get rid of two people. Keebo 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.

Appearance

Ki-Bo Kiibo Keebo K1-B0 Fullbody Sprite (Special)
NDRV3 Art Gallery Ki-Bo

Keebo 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.

Keebo 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 Keebo'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.

Personality

Keebo 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. Because of this, he may get offended if he is compared to much more simple machines. 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 and can get slightly paranoid about "robophobia", supposedly because of past experiences.

Since he is a maturing AI, Keebo learns and develops similar to a human.[8] 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. According to Izuru Kamukura in the bonus mode, Keebo has a tendency to rely on others in difficult situations.

Keebo 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, Keebo 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.

Keebo 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, Keebo proves himself to extremely forceful and pragmatic, choosing the school's destruction as the most efficient way of eradicating despair.

Keebo 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. Despite this, he likes foods. 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,

Ultimate Academy for Gifted Juveniles:

Kokichi Oma

Kokichi enjoys to tease Keebo due to him being oblivious and a robot, thus making him an easy target. Keebo 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 Keebo. 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 Keebo like a person.

Kokichi is seen being very excited about Keebo, 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 Keebo is usually quite well-mannered, he acts harsher towards Kokichi because of his constant discrimination. Considering him a "robo-racist", Keebo 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 Keebo 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 Keebo's talent and features since she went inside his talent research room without his permission.

Her intense personality makes Keebo 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 Keebo, such as flashlight that came out from his eyes.

Keebo 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 Keebo was one of Monokuma's relative which he declined however. Shuichi was surprised how Keebo was a robot and also one of his classmates.

During the Bonus Mode, in the love hotel, Keebo 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 Keebo doesn't truly like him. Keebo turns unhappy and assumes he was rejected, but Shuichi tells him it's not like that. Keebo 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.

Although initially defensive about his robot nature, Keebo decides that he is glad to be Kaede's friend after discovering that she is not a discriminatory towards robots. [9]

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 Keebo were in the same affiliation, Team Danganronpa. Tsumugi treated Keebo like a toy and even bullies him for his actions in the trial. They officially became enemies when Keebo believed in hope and Tsumugi cared about the show. When nobody casts their votes, Tsumugi trusted Keebo to execute her along with Monokuma as well. Keebo 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.
