Makoto Naegi (苗木 誠 Naegi Makoto) is one of the characters featured in Super Danganronpa 2.5: Komaeda Nagito to Sekai no Hakaimono.
Makoto was created by the Neo World Program and this copy of him was created alongside Nagito Komaeda's dream in the program. Due to being based on Nagito's thoughts and desires, he is somewhat different from the real Makoto Naegi.
The real-life Makoto has a rather thin and petite build, being shorter than almost all of his classmates, but in Nagito's imaginary world he appears to be taller. His facial expressions are also very different to show his more confident personality.
Otherwise, Makoto's appearance is the same in comparison with his real-life counterpart's casual attire. He has spiky, desaturated brown hair with a prominent ahoge, and washed-out hazel eyes. He wears a zipped-up dull green hoodie with a red stripe along the zipper, an open black jacket with gold buttons over the hoodie, black jeans, and red sneakers with white toes.
Makoto's hoodie has a logo of a red gas mask in a circle printed on the back of the hood, and the zipper goes all the way up to the top of the hood. He wears a pin shaped like a four-pointed star overlaid on a crescent moon; this is pinned to the lapel of his jacket.
While kind and friendly, Makoto's illusion is notably different when compared to the real one, as he has a much more cool and confident personality. He also appears somewhat flirty and smooth, as he doesn't hesitate to refer to Sayaka Maizono as 'Buttercup' and 'Darling', and he very quickly charms her. This trait is not seen in real Makoto at all, as he is more shy and submissive, and has even been described as "herbivore man".
These changes exist supposedly because he is imagined by Makoto's admirer, Nagito.
Makoto is seen after Sayaka bumped into Nagito and caused him a series of unlucky events, she received good luck when gentlemanly Makoto helped her to stand up. Sayaka is impressed and in awe of how cool he is and the two have a romantic moment.
The Illusory Class 78th
Much like Makoto's relationship with Sayaka in real-life, they both share romantic feelings for each other, however, the style of their relationship was much more flirtatious in contrast to that of their counterparts.
Makoto helps Sayaka up when she falls after running into Nagito. He is far more cool and confident when presenting himself and doesn't hesitate to refer to Sayaka as 'Buttercup' and 'Darling'. She is mesmerized by Makoto and while being apologetic, Makoto is happy to help her.
The two are later seen walking together, Sayaka is holding Makoto by the arm and both are very comfortable around each other showing how quickly their relationship has developed. It appears they developed a romantic relationship, which seems to make Mukuro jealous.
Mukuro has been shown stalking Makoto in Nagito's dream, hiding behind a tree and glaring as Sayaka held his arm. This shows that she also harbors romantic feelings for him, much like her real-life counterpart, however, due to his relationship with Sayaka, it can be concluded that Makoto does not feel the same.
