Monokuma Song (モノクマおんど) is the special opening song used for Episode #4 of Danganronpa: The Animation.

The song was released on August 28th, 2013 in the OST for the anime and featured on the Bonus Disc in Volume 3 of special edition Blu-Ray releases of Danganronpa: The Animation, which was released on October 23rd, 2013.

It is performed by famous Japanese Enka singer Sachiko Kobayashi, and features Monokuma, voiced by then Monokuma-voice actress Nobuyo Ōyama.


Monokuma Song (Monokuma Ondo) is actually somewhat similar to Doraemon no Uta or "The Doraemon Song" - the famous opening theme of the Doraemon TV show, adding to the intentional similarities between Monokuma and Doraemon, who are both voiced by voice actress Nobuyo Ōyama.

Both songs follow a similar tempo, and are sung by a female singer while Monokuma/Doraemon chant their signature phrases in between the lines.

Also, the last line of Monokuma Song - 憎かわいらしくモノクマおんど nikukawairashiku Monokuma ondo; lit. The Hateful yet Adorable Monokuma Song is reminiscent of the last line of "Doraemon no Uta" - とても大好きドラえもん totemo daisuki Doraemon; lit. The most lovable Doraemon.

  • The animation for the song is themed after the "Bullet Time Battle" mini-game in Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc.
  • The outfit the giant Monokuma wears at the end of the song is a reference to the flamboyant stage outfits Sachiko Kobayashi would wear during her performances.
