–Momomichi Ito's catchphrase, Danganronpa Gaiden: Killer Killer
Momomichi Ito (伊東 桃道 Itō Momomichi) is an antagonist featured in Danganronpa Gaiden: Killer Killer, a spinoff manga connected to Danganronpa 3: The End of Hope's Peak Academy. He's a popular idol under his stage name, "Monk Idol".
Momomichi is revealed as a serial killer who murdered 42 people and decorated them as Asura statues in his concert in chapter 1. After his crime was discovered, he is murdered by the Killer Killer, Takumi Hijirihara.
He is a handsome guy with dark colored short hair. He wears his stage outfit, a dark colored yukata.
He is at first shown as a sociable idol. After being identified as a culprit by Takumi he shows the mentally unstable side of him.
Momomichi first appeared singing on the stage in high spirit until the Asura statues which used as stage's background revealed as decorated corpses. He and some of his crew later were interrogated by Misaki Asano and Takumi. However, before Misaki reach the investigation's conclusion, she left Momomichi and the others to chase Takumi.
After the investigation postponed, Takumi called Momomichi to meet him alone. Suddenly appearing from an offering box, Takumi pointed Momomichi as the culprit of the early mass murder. At first, Momomichi denied him, but after the special investigator gave his murder a score of 20, Momomichi dropped his act.
Momomichi revealed himself as the culprit, drinking his victims' blood from a bottle. He believes that human's blood will make him young forever, preventing him to never deteriorate as an idol. Eventually, Takumi murdered him, using the true meaning of jigsaw murder before he could kill the investigator.
- “The moment human beings start to wither away...is when they start weaning. A fetus receives blood though its umbilical cord...And breast milk is just blood of a different color. In other words, if we had never been weaned off our mother's milk. We would never have to grow old.” (Momomichi explaining his motives to Takumi Hijirihara)
