–Kokichi Oma's catch phrase, Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony


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

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.[5]

During the New Killing School Life, Kokichi manipulated Gonta Gokuhara in killing Miu Iruma in Chapter 4. Later, he planned his own death with the help from Kaito Momota, ultimately ending his life in Chapter 5.
Spoilers end here.


Appearance

Kokichi is a young man with an innocent look and a rather refined face. He has a decent and thin build, very pale skin, purple eyes and short, wavy purple hair.

He wears a white suit with multiple straps wrapped around his arms, two straps hang loose around his legs. His shirt is ripped at the hem. He has multi-colored buttons running down the middle of his shirt, and he has military badges on his right. He also wears black and purple slip flats and a checkered patterned scarf.

In his promotional art, he is shown with a dark flowing cloak and a leather peaked hat with a gold badge on top of it, giving him a more malicious look.

Personality

Kokichi describes himself as an evil supreme leader. He is 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. However, none of his claims have been confirmed. In his love hotel fantasy sequence, it's shown that he likes to view himself as a phantom thief type of a criminal.

He is an elusive and manipulative person who unabashedly tells lies and says whatever he's thinking. 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.[6] He considers lying a big part of himself and appears either unwilling or unable to stop it. 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.

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 well aware that he is disliked, often claiming that nobody would care if he was gone. He is often portrayed smiling slyly and laughing mischievously, though he may look very harmless and innocent at first glance. His voice can vary between higher and deeper note to fit the role he wishes to put on. He often behaves calmly and coolly in a way to torture the others, his voice turning deeper if he wishes to be especially ominous, but he can also try to use his looks to his advantage and sheds crocodile tears by crying loudly like a scared and threatened child.

He is also known to use very unsettling, even demonic looking expressions.

Kokichi is also shown to be very intelligent. He 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. In order to have an unsolvable murder case, he creates a plan to make himself killed and then writes a script for Kaito during the class trial. The script is written thoroughly about possible reactions and possible routes of how the class trial will play out. On top of this he correctly predicted the exact way Kaito would die, foreshadowed Kaede Akamatsu's death, said no one will miss him if he dies at the start, told Shuichi Saihara to be serious in his last free time event because otherwise he could get killed and shows him the correct way to win Danganronpa (by not playing it), and even foreshadows Tenko Chabashira's death minutes before it happened. 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.

Even though he enjoys to lie and stir chaos, Kokichi also addresses many valid points. 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. Despite all of his faults, he is also stated to have certain innocence which makes him hard to hate. This is seen in his occasional child-like excitement and the playfulness he shows towards K1-B0 during their first meeting, making him seem more ignorant than actually malicious. He is very mischievous, enjoys pranks and seems to enjoy doing reckless things. He has also claimed that he lies in order to entertain others.

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. 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.

Spoilers end here.


He refers to everyone including boys with the suffix "-chan", which is a suffix often associated with females; 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 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.

Talent

Ultimate Supreme Leader

Fitting for his title, Kokichi claims to be a leader of a secret society, with more than 10,000 members. His name, title and clothing also have references to dictators.

He has described himself as a liar and he appears to be very sly. He also seems to use his harmless and innocent looks to his advantage.

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.

He even creates a plan to make himself killed and then writes a script for Kaito during the class trial. The script is written thoroughly about possible reactions and possible routes of how the class trial will play out. On top of this he correctly predicted how or when some of the other students die, as well as foreshadows many other events. On that note, Kokichi also elusively gives clues and hints during trials. However, he also does extreme measures, such as claiming himself as the killer during the third class trial in order to bring out the real killer. This is similar to how he purposely acts as the game's mastermind in order to lure out the real one.

Past

Spoilers start here.
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.[7] 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.

During the Bonus Mode, 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.

Spoilers start here.
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.

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 Keebo exposing his lie. He met Kirumi Tojo along the way, establishing an alibi for both of them.

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.

Kokichi is one of the students who oppose Angie Yonaga's Student Council.

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.

During the New Killing School Life, 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.

Chapter 5 - In a Journey Without Love or Youth

Spoilers start here.
Following the fourth trial, Kokichi would dissappear for a couple days and later reappear in the gym, bringing with him Miu Iruma's inventions and offering them to his classmates. After the other survivors use these 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 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 Remembering 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.

Maki panicked and rushed out of the hanger and made her way to Shuichi's Study Center 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.

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.

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.

Kokichi's Study Center 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.

Kokichi is first seen inside the storage room chasing and harassing Keebo. He innocently asks Keebo 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 Keebo, such as asking whether he has a penis or not.

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 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, 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.

K1-B0

Kokichi enjoys teasing Keebo due to Keebo 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 interesting and "cool", but he thinks they aren't people, and thus he does not treat Keebo like a real person. He is 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 duller than he expected. He also wanted to get rocket punched by Keebo, but the robot stated he doesn't have such function.

Kokichi continues to treat Keebo in a discriminating manner throughout the game. He tends to suggest Keebo 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 Keebo, supposedly to test how it works inside the program.

On his whiteboard, Kokichi describes Keebo 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 to end the game because he considers the latter to be "the one who understands him best".

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 feels irritated by Kokichi and believes that he is the mastermind. She insults him by calling him a shota and a compulsive liar. In chapter 2, Kokichi had noticed Miu stripping to her underwear and states that she is having an erotic time.

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.

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.

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 said he loved her however which Himiko responded by blushing. Due to his lying nature, it's hard to tell if he was serious and it could have been yet another way to tease her.

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, in order to get everyone's monopad, Kokichi used him to kidnap the students in his Study Center.

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.

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 finds Kaede not a boring person and said this to her just before she was dragged into her execution. Coming from him, this appears to be quite a notable compliment.

During Danganronpa V3's non-canon bonus mode, Kokichi and Celestia are students in the same school.

When Celestia is "elegantly sipping her tea", Kokichi rushes to tell her that Hifumi Yamada inflated himself and popped like a balloon. Celestia barely reacts to these news, only finding it inconvenient because Hifumi is the one who brews her tea. Kokichi is surprised by her nonchalant reaction and claims that the whole classroom is covered in blood. Celestia answers she finds no issue in that as long as her favorite purse is unstained. Kokichi remarks how cold she is and assumes it must be due to her experience as a gambler. He then tells her not to worry, revealing that he was just lying and both Hifumi and the purse are safe. Celestia says she is relieved and was completely tricked by him, but Kokichi knows she is lying and says that he hates when people lie. Apparently, her "I was deceived" gag is a thing between the two liars.

Kokichi wonders if Celestia is angered with him on the inside, but she claims that as a gambler she is used to being lied to, and unlike him she doesn't claim to detest lies. Attempting to annoy her, Kokichi then says that "Yasuhiro-chan" must hate people telling the truth much more than lying. Celestia stays composed despite the use of her real name, only having a quick pause, and then answers it's not like that at all because it would be tiresome if everything were lies all the time. Kokichi says that's just a joke and she's lying, and that's why he likes talking to people like her. However, Celestia assumes he is lying again.

The two decide to have a lying competition, betting on their lives and all belongings (the Japanese word "lying competition" has a pun on "date").

Trivia

  • 小吉 Kokichi can mean "small luck", or can be a fortune telling reading for slightly good luck. 王馬 Ōma 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.
  • In his promotional art, Kokichi is shown holding Panta, which is a reference to the soda brand, Fanta.
  • He seems to be fond of torture according to his speech in the first character trailer's class trial.
  • 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[12].
