Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony (Demo)

Kokichi Oma (王馬 小吉 Ōma Kokichi) is a character featured in Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony and a participant of the Killing Game Semester.

His title is Ultimate Supreme Leader[1] (超高校級の「総統」 chō kōkō kyū no “sōtō” lit. Super High School Supreme Leader). He is the self-proclaimed leader of an evil secret society with more than 10,000 members, though it's unknown if it actually exists.[4]

Before Joining Danganronpa
NDRV3 Cast Prologue

Kokichi Oma is a normal talentless high school boy who participated in the 53rd Season of Danganronpa, a famous worldwide reality show made by Team Danganronpa.

Kokichi and the other talentless fifteen students undergo the fabrication process, where all of their past memory and personality were heavily fabricated. He also received the talent and title of Ultimate Supreme Leader. All of this were done for the sake of satisfying Danganronpa's audience from all around the world. After the fabrication process done, Kokichi and the others entered the Ultimate Academy for Gifted Juveniles as a whole different person, officially commencing the 53rd killing game season known as the Killing Game Semester.

Students of Fabrication

During his high school days, Kokichi attended Imperial Capital's Imperial High School (帝都大帝都高校). However, it is unclear if this memory of him is a part of the fabrication made by Team Danganronpa.

Fabricated Past

After he successfully participated in the 53rd Killing Game, Kokichi's memories and past were fabricated by Team Danganronpa as follows.

Kokichi's past is very unclear due to his constant lying and the fact that he strictly refuses to reveal anything personal about himself. However, he has claimed that nobody would care if he was gone, and it's been implied that he has no parents nor family.

It's known that he is the leader of DICE, a small group of young pranksters, who are the most important people and like a family to him. They have traveled around the world and commit "laughable crimes" for fun, which could indicate that they could be a group of orphans with no families nor parents to hold them back. Kokichi is also good at stealing, which might be due to his past.

During the killing game, Kokichi lies he is the supreme leader of a large, evil secret society. Obviously, there is no evidence of it and the Ultimate Detective, Shuichi Saihara, does not know any organization matching with Kokichi's one.[5] During his free time event, Kokichi claims he became the supreme leader by killing his parents and taking their place. He then claims he lied, and that the one who killed them was his brother. He claims he lied again and that the real reason is a secret. Considering his tendency to have some truth among his lies, this could imply something about his past.

There is a scene in the bonus mode Ultimate Talent Development Plan which hints about his family situation, as Kokichi and Kaito won't go home for New Year's, Kaito due to his unconventional family situation of living with his grandparents. Kaito asks Kokichi why he isn't at home with his parents (and aren't his parents embarrassed of him being such a brat at his age). Kokichi only tells him that he shouldn't ask such personal questions when talking to the supreme leader.

However, it is unclear how much, if any, of Kokichi's past before participating in the 53rd Killing Game was real, and which fabricated by Team Danganronpa.

The Gopher Plan

Main article: The Gopher Plan
The Gopher Plan V3 Kids
Part of the fake backstories created for Kokichi and the other fifteen students was the Gopher Plan, which supposedly happened before the killing game started. It was initiated by the government after countless meteorites crashed into Earth. To try and preserve the last vestiges of mankind before the Earth’s destruction, the government decided to select a number of excellent human beings, put them in a spaceship, and have them escape.

Kokichi and fifteen other high school students were chosen to participate. Not wanting to abandon their loved ones, they attempted to escape from the plan.

Around that time, an extremist cult came into power. They believed that the meteor crashes were a punishment humanity brought upon itself, and having heard of the Gopher Plan, they tried to stop it. As a result, the “Ultimate Hunt” started and spread throughout the world, and the sixteen students were hunted down.

The Gopher Plan Fake Deaths

The government then decided to counter the situation by faking the students’ deaths, calming down the “Ultimate Hunt” while providing protection to the students. The Gopher Plan was then put into action while the Earth was being destroyed. Kokichi and the others went to the space in a massive colony spaceship, the true form of Ultimate Academy of Gifted Juveniles.

Kokichi who is secretely as a member of Junko Enoshima's Remnants of Despair declared that he is the mastermind behind the Killing Game who let Monokuma entered the spaceship, effectively forcing the fifteen students to participate in the Killing Game.

It should be noted that Kokichi has no complete recollection of the event, as he was not present when the complete memory about The Gopher Plan was triggered by the Flashback Light in Chapter 5.

The rest of the students running into the library

Prior to Rantaro Amami's murder, Kokichi was in his room. He would later be among the last group of students to enter the library and discover his corpse after the body discovery announcement had played.

During the class trial, he boasted about being an evil supreme leader and as such, used to situations like this. He would go on to pin the crime on Miu Iruma in the early stages of the trial since she constructed the cameras in the library, but Kaede Akamatsu and Korekiyo Shinguji were quick to defend her and said that she was in the cafeteria at that time with Korekiyo, Kirumi Tojo, and Tsumugi Shirogane. Miu acknowledged Kaede and said that she did good, but harshly belittled Kokichi for being a liar, to which he responded with by shedding fake tears.

Later on in the trial, he would be quick to jump onto Shuichi as the culprit after he claimed that he had forgotten to mention the camera intervals to Kaede. She was quick to defend him, but Kokichi would continue to push constantly and ended up being one of the main students who believed that Shuichi had commited the crime. He was very quick to see through Kaede's lie, being a liar himself, but left it up to everyone else to see if they would choose to believe in her. He eventually backed down along with the other students who were against Shuichi after Kaede and the students who defended Shuichi proved his innocence.

After Shuichi revealed Kaede as the true killer, Kokichi was intrigued and gladly went along in proving her guilt. He was one of the few students to show no sadness upon her demise and simply told her she fell straight for Monokuma's trap before she was executed.

In Chapter 2, Kokichi was the only student who believed not exchanging Monokubpads was a bad idea. He led a plan where he used Gonta to capture everyone and show them all the videos, but that plan was foiled by K1-B0 exposing his lie. He met Kirumi along the way, establishing an alibi for both of them.

Ouma reveals Harukawa's true talent

After Kirumi is exposed as the killer, he exposes her plan to sacrifice the students while she makes an escape. After everyone leaves the trial room, he exposes Maki Harukawa's real talent and accuses her of having driven Ryouma Hoshi to suicide.

In Chapter 3, Kokichi is one of the students who oppose Angie Yonaga's Student Council.

Ouma's fake dead

During investigation, he trips on a replica of the killer's trap and starts bleeding from it. He decides to use this blood to fake a body discovery scene for himself.

Later in the trial, he is accused of the murder due to his ability to pick locks, but he openly accepts the accusation and even claims that he is the killer.

The New World Program

During the Killing Game Semester, the students of Ultimate Academy for Gifted Juveniles enter a virtual world program to find out what has happened in the "outside world". Miu Iruma, being the Ultimate Inventor, tampered with the program such that it makes it easy for her to murder Kokichi in the program while setting Kaito Momota up to be the culprit.

However, Kokichi notices the trap and collaborates with Gonta Gokuhara to murder Miu by manipulating the changes she has made to the program. Gonta, having been implanted, or made to remember the supposed truth about the outside world whilst in the virtual world program, readily carries out the plan, as he wants to end everyone's suffering without ever letting them realize that by graduating, they would only be leaving one hell and entering another. Due to Gonta accidentally mixing up the "memory" and "consciousness" cords before he entered, he retains no memory of ever being in the virtual world at all. Despite Kokichi being the one who created the plan, he is not considered the culprit of the murder as he did not directly kill anyone.

After the trial is over, he asks to be executed together with Gonta, but the idea is rejected. After the execution, he madly declares that his motive was enjoying seeing people suffer. Later he gets a monologue scene stating it's time to end the game.

Kokichi's Plan

Following the fourth trial, Kokichi would disappear for a couple days and later reappear in the gym, bringing with him Miu Iruma's inventions and offering them to his classmates.

Kokichi controlling the Exisals

After the other survivors use these inventions to cross the Death Road of Despair, they came across a large metal hatch which they open up and discover the apparent state of the outside world. Shortly after, Kokichi 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.

A few days later, Kaito who was still being held captive inside the hanger, had Himiko Yumeno bring him a disassembled crossbow through the small bathroom window. He proceeded to assemble the crossbow and threatened Kokichi with it, not wishing to kill him, but at the very least overpower him. Kaito shot him in the arm and they got into a quarrel. It was at this time that Maki Harukawa rode an Exisal into the hanger, intent on ending the killing game, saving Kaito, and killing Kokichi due to believing that he was a Remnant of Despair from the false memory triggered by the Flashback Light.

Kokichi made a desperate grab for the remote control that Miu made to control any electronic device, but he was promptly shot in the back by Maki with a poison tipped arrow from her crossbow and brought to the ground. Despite the position he was in, Kokichi belittled Maki, asking her why a killing game that should have already ended is still continuing. He had no idea what she means by Remnant of Despair, and asked her whether or not she really enjoys killing that much. Maki would not hear any of it and proceeded to shoot the killing blow, only to have it intercepted by Kaito, stunning Kokichi and shocking Maki.

Momota protecting Ouma

Maki panicked and rushed out of the hanger and made her way to Shuichi's Research Lab to retrieve the antidote, but Kokichi closed the shutter to the hanger to ensure she could not come back in. Later, Maki came back with the antidote and passed it to Kaito through the small bathroom window, but Kokichi immediately stole it and supposedly drank it, much to Kaito's anger, and Maki's horror due to there only being one antidote. Kokichi boasted that another class trial would start now where Kaito would be the victim and Maki would be the blackened, much to her shock. Kaito reassured her that she would be fine and told her to leave.

After Maki fled the scene, Kokichi used the electric bomb to disable the security alarm, and the safety mechanism of the press machine inside of the hanger. He then gave the antidote to Kaito, revealing that he only pretended to drink it. He forced Kaito to comply with his plan where he would kill him in order to create an unknown victim case so that Monokuma would not be able to create proper judgement during the class trial. Kaito initially refused, but when Kokichi made the point that Maki would be the blackened if he didn't, he had no choice but to go along with the plan in order save Maki, and stop the killing game as well. It is revealed here that Kokichi has actually been trying to stop the killing game from the very beginning. Pretending to be the mastermind and revealing the supposed truth about the outside world to the others was all done by him to discourage another killing from happening. He states that the idea of someone watching this boring killing game where they risk their lives pissed him off. Kaito couldn't tell if he was lying or not, but acknowledged that he was really pulling at his strings in order to get him to work with him.

Kokichi's Fate

Both Kokichi and Kaito acted quickly to ensure that the former would not die from poison that was circulating throughout his body. They both made their way to the press machine and began to go through with the plan. Kaito took off his jacket, placed it underneath the press machine, then lied down on it while Kokichi controlled the press machine and filmed the "time of death" with a simple video camera. Kokichi stopped the press machine and the video camera while only Kaito's sleeve was visible, then the two promptly swapped places. Kaito, now controlling both the press machine and camera, turned them both on once again, crushing Kokichi to an unrecognizable, bloody mess, with Kaito's jacket sleeve hanging out of the press as a false clue as to who the victim was.

Danganronpa V3 Chapter 5 Body Discovery00:18

Danganronpa V3 Chapter 5 Body Discovery

Kaito would proceed to retrieve the video camera, snap the cords to the press machine to ensure it would not move again, and hid inside the red Exisal until the class trial began, where he imitated the Ultimate Supreme Leader himself thanks to the Exisal's voice changing function, as well as a book that Kokichi prepared for this exact moment that detailed his exact way of speaking and specific behaviors unique to him, essentially carrying on his will and plan until Shuichi is able to deduce that the person inside of the Exisal is not Kokichi, but Kaito.

After the Class Trial ended, Shuichi concluded that Kokichi was someone they could not understand all the way until the very end, and that he might be the physical embodiment of "lie" itself.

Uncovering the Truth

Ouma and DICE

Kokichi's Research Lab would open up to everyone in this chapter. It is here that his motive video is discovered by Shuichi which reveals that Kokichi's supposed "evil secret society" was nothing more than a group of ten pranksters known as DICE that committed humorous petty crimes and had a motto of not killing anyone. This motivation video would later be used as evidence during the final class trial to disprove Kokichi being a Remnant of Despair, as well as evidence to prove the survivors own contradicting memories with the actual facts about Hope's Peak Academy.

Creation and Development


His given name kokichi (小吉) can mean "small luck", or can be a fortune telling reading for slightly good luck. His last name, ōma (王馬) means "king horse", which could be a reference to his Ultimate talent.

While the characters "総統" may also be used to translate as "President", and still do in Japanese for President of Taiwan (中華民国総統) and in Chinese language, nowadays the kanji in Japanese is associated with "dictators". Ironically, the Japanese kanji for Presidents (of USA, for example), "大統領", means "junta leader" in Chinese language.

Alternate Fates

In Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony (Demo Version), Kokichi is first seen inside the storage room chasing and harassing K1-B0. He innocently asks K1-B0 to be his friend, unaware that his actions make the Super High School Level Robot feel uncomfortable. After that, he introduces himself to Kaede and Makoto Naegi, claiming that he is the leader of a secret evil organization with over 10,000 members. However, he says that it might be a lie as he states that he is a liar. Throughout the conversation, he says things to offend K1-B0, such as asking whether he has a penis or not.

Kokichi describes himself as an evil supreme leader. He is an elusive and manipulative person who unabashedly tells lies and says whatever he's thinking. He is also strangely straightforward about his supposed evil nature, openly claiming to be a leader of a large secret society, admitting to being a liar, and saying he has done nothing but bad things. Among other things, his organization supposedly has covert agents in every country, control over all the mafias in the world, torture as a form of punishment, and Kokichi's defeated opponents apparently will get sent in Siberia. However, none of his claims have been confirmed, and the other students think he's either lying or delusional. In his love hotel fantasy sequence, it's shown that he likes to view himself as a phantom thief type of a criminal.

According to Kazutaka Kodaka, Kokichi is a trickster character in the truest sense of the word.[7] He is very mischievous, and he enjoys pranks and teasing others sometimes in quite mean-spirited ways. Because of his behavior, he is viewed as an antagonistic figure among the group. However, even though people find him suspicious, he is still somehow able to manipulate the class trials. He is often portrayed smiling slyly and laughing mischievously, though he may look very harmless and innocent at first glance. He often behaves calmly and coolly in a way to torture the others, at times turning very ominous to the point of having very unsettling, downright demonic looking expressions. He can also try to use his looks to his advantage and sheds crocodile tears by crying loudly like a scared and threatened child, telling the others they're being really mean, but this is always overly dramatic and obviously fake. There are also moments when he suddenly falls asleep and snores comically, angering the others. He is well aware that he is disliked, claiming that nobody would care if he died.

Particularly, Kokichi considers lying a big part of himself and appears either unwilling or unable to stop it. He frequently claims something only to shortly afterwards reveal that he was just lying, making it very hard to trust his word. He also tends to say whatever riles up the other students at the moment and tries to mess up conversations without any apparent reason. Indeed, neither because of impulsivity or the need to confuse others, he lies mostly because he feels he's free to do whatever he wants whenever he wants.[8] Being a liar himself, he sometimes seems to notice when and why other people are lying. He also appears to have little trust in anyone or anything, refusing to tell anything about himself besides his questionable supreme leader claims, and generally questioning the truthfulness of different situations. Ironically, he appears annoyed if other people are lying, either to others or themselves, and he claims that he hates liars.

With Danganronpa V3 main theme being lies, Kokichi as a liar is shown to possess a notably deeper understanding of the situation than the other students. With his deeper sense of perception, he is capable of predicting and understanding things to the point of occasionally resembling the breaking of the fourth wall. He quickly figures out Kaede's major flaw, foreshadows her death and tells her that the definition of common sense varies depending on person. On top of this he correctly predicted the exact way Kaito would die and even foreshadows Tenko Chabashira's death minutes before it happened. Notably, he understands that in order to truly win the killing game you must end it, not necessarily survive it. During his free time events, he even gives this advice to Shuichi, telling him that games can be won by not playing them. Kokichi is also shown to be very intelligent in general, capable of creating complex plans in a short amount of time—a notable case being the time he wrote a script for Kaito during the class trial, which was written thoroughly about possible reactions and possible routes of how the trial will play out. He also does lots of investigation alone without other people noticing, analyzes the other students, and writes their fates and his impression of them on his whiteboard. Supposedly because of his intelligence, he strongly dislikes boredom. He tends to complain about situations he finds boring and even during some bad situations he states that at least it's not boring. If he likes a person or finds them interesting, he tends to state that they are not boring, which is a great compliment coming from him.

Despite all of his flaws, Kokichi is stated to have certain innocence which makes him hard to hate. [8] He himself has claimed that he lies in order to entertain others. Even though he enjoys to lie and stir chaos, he also addresses many valid points and is occasionally the student who speaks the most sense. He himself claims his lies are told half out of kindness, and even the Skill received after his free time events is called "Kind Lie". He sometimes harshly calls out other characters and brings up their major issues, but also appears to push them forward and improve. He is also sometimes shown to have child-like excitement and innocence, getting very excited about interesting new things, acting playful and seemingly appearing more ignorant than malicious during the first time he meets K1-B0.

Later, he claims he enjoys killing and the suffering of others, making the others think he is pure evil and very likely even the mastermind. However, during his last moments, he appears to genuinely cry bitterly as he confesses that he was just lying to others and himself in order to survive and be able to go on. It's also heavily implied that his evil and extreme behavior was part of a plan to outwit the mastermind. He appears disgusted as he explains how much he hates the creator and the viewers of the killing game, who enjoy toying around with people's lives. He says he wants to ruin the killing game even if it costs him his life, thus making its viewers taste "true despair" and honor the memory of those who died. Later, it is revealed that his organization is actually just a small group of pranksters who commit mild crimes for laughs and they are indeed strongly against killing, implying that Kokichi was honest during his last moments. This was also implied by his very serious and genuinely frustrated looking crying expressions, which are very different from his usual, obvious fake tears. He is also seen visibly concerned after hearing the first body discovery announcement and his personality before the brainwashing was completed appeared notably different, lacking his villainous behavior and seeming more timid. During his free time events, while talking about his usual supreme leader claims, Kokichi describes himself as a pacifist whose number one priority is peace. He claims that all the world's mafias he controls would fight, destroy each other and cause unnecessary trouble to everyone around them if he wasn't there to maintain them.

Kokichi refers to everyone including boys with the suffix "-chan", although, it is actually a tender suffix used for soft characters which are often female. Overall, he has a habit of referring to some other people in affectionate way as his "beloved", but it is unclear if he is being serious. He is known to use this term of people he seems to like, but it also could be sarcastic or just flattery at times. He also has a very unique laugh, which is "nishishi"—ironically, this is also the Japanese onomatopoeia for a horse, something which relates to his last name. In the English localization, the laugh is translated as "nee-heehee".

It is later revealed that his organization is called DICE, though it is actually just a small group of eleven pranksters (including himself) who only commit "laughable crimes" such as mild pranks, vandalism and petty theft. Their only motivation seems to be just to have fun and while their appearance can be creepy, they have a rule of not killing anybody. All of them wear similar clothing as their leader—white suits resembling straightjackets and checkered scarfs (supposedly referencing the pattern associated with harlequin clowns). They also wear different clown masks as a symbol of their group and supposedly to hide their identity. The group includes both boys and girls.

This section contains SPOILERS . It has been hidden from view to protect users from spoiling themselves. Expand at your own risk.

Spoilers start here.
Kokichi appears to be amused by and in some way fond of Shuichi, having stated that the other boy seems "decently not boring". It is implied that Kokichi has a crush on Shuichi. He regularly calls him his "beloved Saihara-chan" and enjoys his company, finding him one of the most interesting person in the group and praising him at times. On his whiteboard, it's shown that Kokichi has more clear impression of other characters, but Shuichi is a tricky one he can't really figure out.

While he enjoys to mess with him, Kokichi appears to feel some care for Shuichi and seems to be unwilling to actually harm him. Throughout his free time events, Kokichi tries to "kill" Shuichi and involves him in many of his selfishness and pranks, though he also seems to make sure Shuichi won't be harmed and seems to just mess with him with words. He also invites him to a tea party and suggests Shuichi could join his organization, so he doesn't have to die. In the last event, Kokichi hurts himself by playing the Knife Game and Shuichi takes care of him in worry. Kokichi is pleased by this and tells Shuichi he won, confusing the detective who answers that he wasn't even playing. Kokichi tells him that games can be won without playing them, foreshadowing the end of the killing game. He then claims he never had an intention to actually kill him. Since he has made Shuichi think about him constantly, he claims he has already "killed" him by "stealing his heart".

During Chapter 4, when everyone is inside Neo World Program, Kokichi claims he would cry if something happened to Shuichi with worried expression. When they're alone, he tries to offer his support for Shuichi, saying he wants to use him but also be useful to Shuichi as well. He attempts to separate Shuichi and Kaito, telling Shuichi that he should be his friend instead. Kokichi says he can help Shuichi save everyone, but Shuichi doesn't trust him and leaves without saying a word. Kokichi then mutters to himself about being dumbed and rejected by Shuichi, but he says he won't give up that easily. Darkly, he states that if he grows to like someone, he makes them notice him even if it means choking them.

In the fourth class trial, Kokichi is surprised to see Shuichi had lied to him. He claims he is frustrated and then decides to bother with his reasoning. When Shuichi calls him "lame" and says he is meant to be the kind of person who doesn't have anyone for him, Kokichi's boastful attitude changes and he seems genuinely upset. He then says the whole thing is getting boring and he doesn't care anymore.

In Kokichi's love hotel scene, his fantasy involves him being a legendary thief who's been captured by his archenemy, the detective Shuichi Saihara, with the scene including lots of sexual tension. It's revealed that Kokichi let himself to be caught on purpose and actually wishes to get tied up and "interrogated" roughly, but Shuichi does not want to hurt him and is confused by the situation. This disappoints Kokichi a bit and he states he wouldn't mind whatever Shuichi would do to him. Shuichi continues to act very hesitant and Kokichi says it does not matter how Shuichi feels, though he soon states he was lying about that. Kokichi asks if Shuichi is mad because he feels like Kokichi is playing with his heart and he says his head is always filled with thoughts of Shuichi. He tries to trick Shuichi by claiming that they are surrounded by Kokichi's subordinates, but Shuichi can tell he is lying. Since Shuichi does not make a move, Kokichi says he wants to play with him more and pushes him on the bed. However, he suddenly runs off, which confuses Shuichi even more and he shouts after Kokichi. Right before leaving the room, Kokichi says he wishes to have more fun games with the detective next time they meet.

This is the only fantasy sequence in which Shuichi has his true role as the detective, which might hint that Kokichi is indeed attracted to him.

During the bonus mode Love Across the Universe, Shuichi realizes that he cannot change Kokichi's lying which is a significant part of him and instead should try to understand him and his lies.

Spoilers end here.


Kokichi enjoys teasing K1-B0 due to K1-B0 being oblivious and a robot, thus making him an easy target. K1-B0 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 K1-B0. His behavior seems more like ignorance and innocent bigotry, as he seemingly considers robots interesting and "cool", but he thinks they aren't people, and thus he does not treat K1-B0 like a real person. He is excited about K1-B0, 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 duller than he expected. He also wanted to get rocket punched by K1-B0, but the robot stated he doesn't have such function.

Kokichi continues to treat K1-B0 in a discriminating manner throughout the game. He tends to suggest K1-B0 should do heavy work, because he is a robot, and keeps pointing out that he isn't a person. When they enter Neo World Program for the first time, Kokichi almost immediately slaps K1-B0, supposedly to test how it works inside the program.

On his whiteboard, Kokichi describes K1-B0 as "strange".

Spoilers start here.
Kokichi and Kaito have a violent relationship, marked by constant antagonism and disagreeing. Despite his best attempts to stay calm, Kaito sometimes ended up lashing out at Kokichi when the latter infuriated him, even punching him once. Kaito often made threats toward Kokichi, and in turn, Kokichi would taunt or anger him more but for the sake of trying to overpower him and scare him. However, Kaito was also the one who kept Maki from strangling Kokichi, showing that despite their relationship, he didn't want him killed.

During Chapter 4, Kokichi attempts to separate Kaito and Shuichi by telling Shuichi that he should be his friend instead. It's heavily implied that Kaito voted for Kokichi during the fourth trial out of spite and his refusal to accept Gonta as the murderer.

After "revealing" himself as the mastermind, Kokichi captures Kaito and forces him to collaborate in his plan to end the game because he considers the latter to be "the one who understands him best".

Maki Harukawa

Spoilers start here.
Maki resents Kokichi, even attempting to literally strangle him to death twice, only to be stopped by Kaito. He exposed her identity as an assassin, accuses her of driving Ryouma Hoshi to suicide and spends most of the third chapter incentivating his colleagues not to interact with the murderer.

During the third chapter, after Kokichi captures Kaito, she seriously attempts to kill him with a poisoned crossbow. Maki spends the entire chapter referring to Kokichi exclusively as "the son of a bitch", which is remarkable because she otherwise doesn't swear. Eventually, Maki realized that Kokichi wasn't the mastermind all along and regretted how she led her love interest into killing Kokichi and Maki took the blame for it.

Miu Iruma

Spoilers start here.
Miu feels irritated by Kokichi and believes that he is the mastermind. She insults him by calling him a shota and a compulsive liar. While Kokichi appears to otherwise dislike Miu, he likes to insult her and push her around during her weaker moments. In her relationship chart, he orders her to get on her knees. The two are seen insulting each other multiple times during the trials, with Kokichi calling her ugly, smelly, a bitch and similar crude things.

In chapter 2, Kokichi witnessed Miu in the dark, walking around in her underwear in the courtyard, as a tactic to escape Gonta. During investigation, Kokichi tells the others about the situation and how strange it was, with him appearing visibly disappointed. He later mocks her during the trial for being perverted.

In chapter 4, Miu attempted to murder Kokichi in the virtual world killing game and placed a bottle of poison on his chair to make it look like he got poisoned. However, Kokichi lured Gonta into killing Miu by strangling her with a roll of toilet paper. Later when Gonta was found as a culprit, Kokichi told Monokuma to execute him as well which could prove that Kokichi regret what he did but it can be hard to tell if that was part of his lying nature.

Despite her murder attempt, Miu claims to have no particular ill-intent against Kokichi.

Rantaro Amami

Spoilers start here.
Like everyone else, Rantaro can be a bit annoyed with Kokichi's behavior. While the two are not shown interacting much, Kokichi called him his "beloved Amami-chan" and cried when he saw his corpse. However, his attitude changed very quickly, making it hard to tell which one of his reactions was truthful. Kokichi states how he doesn't care about Rantaro and claims to Shuichi that he doesn't actually want him to come back alive, though, this could be a possibility as one of his lies.

Much later, it's seen that Kokichi has the life-like statue of Rantaro made by Angie hanging upside down next to his bed. This implies that Kokichi misses him and hints that his reaction to Rantaro's death wasn't part of his lying nature.

During one of the anthology stories, it's shown that Rantaro might have a big brotherly attitude towards Kokichi. When the students are attempting to catch Kokichi, they set an "Amami trap", with him waiting in place and attempting to catch him with his arms. However, Kokichi sweetly asks him to let him go and calls him "big bro", causing Rantaro to immediately soften and let him pass "just for that one time", to the annoyance of the other students.

Himiko Yumeno


This section contains SPOILERS . It has been hidden from view to protect users from spoiling themselves. Expand at your own risk.

Spoilers start here.
Kokichi often enjoys teasing Himiko due to her delayed reactions and personality. Kokichi tends to point fingers at her and claim she's the culprit, though he doesn't really seem to believe this and seemingly just does it for fun, like in Chapter 2.

During Chapter 3's trial, Kokichi causes Himiko to cry by harshly calling her out for running away from her own emotions and being a hypocrite. She had made promises and talked at-length during the trial about how she wasn’t going to call things tiresome and she was going to embrace her emotions to the fullest and be honest with herself, but she wasn't actually doing it. Kokichi was surprised when Himiko had a breakdown due to Tenko's and Angie's death. As a result, Himiko really dislikes and doesn't trust Kokichi in the later chapters.

In Chapter 5, Himiko states that there is no way to love or take interest in a person like Kokichi. In turn, Kokichi suddenly answered he loved her, making her respond by blushing. Due to his lying nature, it's hard to tell if he was serious, but it's likely that he simply gave the answer which would surprise and shock the other the most, for his own amusement.

In her relationship chart, Kokichi grins while calling her "an extremely ugly girl". He similarly calls Himiko ugly during the Prologue, when Miu tells the Monokubs to kill the ugly ones first, and Kokichi then cheerfully tells Himiko to run. Himiko, however, does not understand what he's talking about.

Spoilers end here.

Gonta Gokuhara


This section contains SPOILERS . It has been hidden from view to protect users from spoiling themselves. Expand at your own risk.

Spoilers start here.
Kokichi considers Gonta a typical dumb muscle and planned to use him as one of his minions from the start. His lack of respect towards Gonta is seen in the way he doesn't use any honorifics when talking to him.

In Chapter 2, Kokichi tricks Gonta to work for him by pretending to be a fellow bug lover. In order to get everyone's monopad, Kokichi used Gonta to bring the students into his Research Lab. He lied that the others had been hating on bugs and they should all have relaxing time with the insects and appreciate them. However, K1-B0 soon exposes Kokichi's lie, making Gonta furious. He grabs Kokichi, telling him that they shall spend the whole night petting bugs. The other students escape the scene quickly, hearing Kokichi's shrill screams from the room.

In Chapter 4, Kokichi manipulated Gonta into killing Miu for him. He claimed that he didn't care about Gonta, though this could have been a lie, as he appeared genuinely saddened and cried in guilt before Gonta was executed.

Spoilers end here.

Kirumi Tojo

After learning that she is a great cook, Kokichi wants Kirumi to be his "mom" and keeps asking her about it. She is not fond of the idea, though.

Kokichi is later chased around and scolded by Kirumi. When disappointed in her behavior, Kokichi responds with "and she dares to call herself my mom" attitude.

Spoilers start here.
When Kirumi is found out to be the culprit, Kokichi does not appear to feel bad. When the students question her about lying to them, Kokichi pulls one last mom joke by asking if she isn't his mom after all. After her execution, however, he appears to feel some genuine respect for her, stating that running away in order to live isn't a bad thing.
Spoilers end here.

Kaede Akamatsu


This section contains SPOILERS . It has been hidden from view to protect users from spoiling themselves. Expand at your own risk.

Spoilers start here.
Kokichi quickly notices flaws in Kaede's judgement and optimistic way of thinking, as she is willing to push others forward even if it would be the best to give up. He also has a tendency to act saddened and complain how mean the others are towards "the poor girl", making the other students to point out that he is always the first one to suspect her. Kaede thinks Kokichi is just like a mischievous child messing around and believes he is constantly lying and just wants attention.

In his Free Time Event with Kaede, Kokichi warns Kaede that she'll be the first one to die if she continues to be such an easy mark. He tries to ask her to join his organization and be a cover agent pianist, but she believes all of it is just Kokichi's delusions. He then explains to her that the definition of common sense varies depending on person.

However, later Kokichi finds Kaede not a boring person, as he said this to her just before she was dragged into her execution. Coming from him, this appears to be quite a notable compliment, and it is worth noting that Kokichi had said the same phrase only to Shuichi and Kaito.

Kokichi gets on Korekiyo's nerves with his behavior. When he attempts to touch Korekiyo's katana without his permission while they're inside his Research Lab, Korekiyo disturbingly threatens to tear out all of his nerves, which seems to frighten Kokichi.
Spoilers end here.

Angie Yonaga


This section contains SPOILERS . It has been hidden from view to protect users from spoiling themselves. Expand at your own risk.

Spoilers start here.
When Kokichi cries and appears scared at one point, Angie comforts him by telling him about Atua, the god of the island. Kokichi then appears to calm down immediately, but it's likely that he was just acting and messing with her.

List of Appearances


  • Kokichi Oma Trivia Six Fingers
    In the early Japanese trailer released on October 24th, 2016, one of Kokichi's sprites was erroneously drawn with six fingers.
  • Kokichi's English voice actor, Derek Stephen Prince, also voices Fuyuhiko Kuzuryu in the Danganronpa series.
  • In his promotional art, Kokichi is shown holding Panta, which is a reference to the soda brand, Fanta.
  • Canonically, Kokichi has no connection or affiliation with Nazism, but some parts of his official art reference it as a way to compare him to a dictator.
  • In a poll hosted by MyNavi, fans voted Kokichi the 2nd most popular Danganronpa V3 student out of 16.[11]
  • Kokichi's astrological sign is Gemini, which is often associated with lying and being a good liar in astrology due to their dual nature. Mercury, the sign ruler, is the god of tricksters and thieves in the Roman mythology.

  • Danganronpa V3 Demo Ouma Spelling

    Image from E3 2017

    At the E3 2017 premiere of the Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony Demo Version, the English translated opening intro included Kokichi Oma's name spelled as "Kokichi Ouma", which goes against typical NIS America localization spelling. NIS America confirmed this was an error that would be rectified by the release of the public demo[12], and it was later corrected in the full demo footage released by IGN on July 31st, 2017.
