Sakura Ogami (大神 さくら Oogami Sakura), nicknamed “The Ogre” online, is one of the characters featured in Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc. She has the title Ultimate Martial Artist (超高校級の「格闘家」chō kōkō kyū no “kakutōka”). She was an expert martial artist and wrestler who became a champion in an international competition held in America. As of now, her 400-win streak has yet to be broken.
Sakura was blackmailed by Monokuma into working with him, and later committed suicide in order to cease the dispute which has arose between the other students after her secret was revealed.
Due to her muscular build, deep voice, and decidedly fierce appearance, Sakura has often been mistaken for being a male - a prominent example being Kiyotaka Ishimaru, who realized Sakura was female only once she explicitly announced so during the first class trial. She has long white hair, reddened-dark skin, and a scar across her face. She often wore her expression in a slight frown.
She donned a white sailor school uniform with ripped sleeves and bandages on her arms and legs, and a blue skirt that barely covered her extremely muscular thighs.
Contrary to what her appearance might suggest, Sakura is a quiet and levelheaded girl. She has a habit of talking in an old, formal manner, possibly influenced by the fact that she was heir apparent to a dojo with a three-hundred-year history. She rarely loses her nerve and often sees things above any given situation.
Likely inheriting a spirit of loyalty from her clan, she also greatly revered and respected her friendship with the other students of Class 78, going as far as committing suicide in order to prevent them from turning against each other.
[Warning: Several spoilers follow this section!]
Prior to the TragedyEdit
As a child, Sakura trained at her family's dojo everyday with her father, until one day she defeated him and had never looked back since.
Early on before Sakura had built herself up to her muscular bulk, she was a lot slimmer and fairer, rather similar in physique to Hina, while her school uniform remained the same one as she had worn it during the Mutual Killing incident.
At the time, the only opponent that Sakura could not defeat was a man named Kenichiro, who was heavily implied to be her boyfriend; it was sometime after their perting that Sakura had begun to built herself up heavily.
She promised to fight him again and had sworn to keep that memory 'buried within her heart' sometime after she had heard that Kenichiro only had six months to live, and that he had wanted Sakura to inherit the title of “strongest fighter on Earth” from him. However, she did not keep that memory buried as she had promised, and at one point told Class 78 about her missing Kenichiro, even receiving Makoto's encouragement at the time.
It is not clear at present what might have had happened to Sakura when The Tragedy began, other than she was one of the students of Class 78 who had survived, and had been filmed, pledging to remain in school for their own safety, when the school had just begun converting itself into a shelter facility. Similarly, little was known of the time between her memory erasure and her participation in the subsequent Mutual Killing incident.
High School Life of Mutual KillingEdit
Like the rest of Class 78, Sakura was among those who were chosen to attend Hope Peak Academy and ended up being trapped inside the school, not knowing at the time that she had already been memory-wiped of her school life experiences of the past two years.
Some time shortly after the Mutual Killing incident began and most students were shown motivational videos of their personal lives, Sakura was blackmailed by Monokuma into becoming its mole, in exchange for the safety of her family dojo and members, instructed to bring about a killing incident should things begin to stabalize among the survivors.
However, even as a mole, her role had proven to be very limited; Leon Kuwata stabbed Sayaka Maizono “out of self-defence”, Mondo Owada bludgeoned Chihiro Fujisaki in a fit of uncontrolled rage, and Celeste turned out to be the mastermind who had Kiyotaka Ishimaru and Hifumi Yamada killed.
Noble Sacrifice for RedemptionEdit
Some time after Celeste's execution, knowing that it was time for her to comply with Monokuma, Sakura decided that she had had enough of deceiving her friends any further and she had made up her mind to crush Monokuma's twisted games once and for all. She then confronted Monokuma in the gym, witnessed by Makoto who had just woken up from being knocked out.
Before she could properly confess, however, Monokuma beat her to the punch by revealing her status as its mole, which immediately led to several animostic incidents occurring between the aloof Byakuya, the love-struck Toko and the defensive Hina, who had desperately attempted to protect Sakura from further slander.
It was Hina's injury inflicted by Genocide Jill, that prompted Sakura to finally end things once and for all. Meaning to interpret Monokuma's instructions in the least damaging way possible, she decided that the most unobtrusive way to go about fulfilling his instructions was to commit suicide.
To that end, she had her farewell letter penned in an old fashion - through the use of calligraphy.
At some unknown point of time in between this and her activities in the Recreation Room, she broke the door leading to the principal's office; this would turn out to be key in allowing Kyoko Kirigiri to steal Monokuma's treasure (a key which can unlock every room in the academy) and allow her to obtain some crucial information regarding Mukuro Ikusaba, the sixteenth student.
Before her final moments, Sakura had attempted to make peace with Hiro - who had been mighty defensive after the expose - as well as Toko and Byakuya. The former two did turn up to meet her at the Recreation Room, but had either severely misinterpreted her intention (Hiro) or had been triggered into action involuntarily (Toko); Byakuya never showed up in order to play matters safe for himself.
Sakura ended up being struck twice in succession by Monokuma bottles.
Hina, who was alarmed by Sakura's injury - having previously tried dissuading Sakura from meeting the trio - was asked by Sakura to make her a bottle of protein shake. Having removed Hina from the Recreation Room, the muscular girl then locked the Rec Room door, and then downed the bottle of poison she had retrieved from the Chemistry Lab cabinet, eventually vomiting blood.
Even through the pain, she died with a smile on her face, confident that her friends would not kill each other any more.
Her noble sacrifice, however, was severely complicated by both Hina and Monokuma; while Hina had attempted to mislead the rest of the students in order to get everybody killed as revenge for apparently pushing Sakura “beyond the edge”, it was later revealed that Hina was fooled and Monokuma had the real dying message, deliberately swapping the letter away so that Hina could do the dirty work for it.
Deciding Match of the Whole Galaxy - Sakura is standing in wilderness. Various space alien commanders and soldiers appear and surround her, manipulating the atmosphere. Even though Sakura successfully kicks them one after another, the enemies don't stop appearing. Eventually it becomes too cramped and she dies by the pressure of being buried. This is only described in the official Visual Fanbook.
Hina was depicted throughout to be Sakura's very special friend. The two bonded from the very beginning over their love of sports and athletics, and are rarely seen without the other.
Both are fiercely protective of each other; Hina was the only one to openly stick up for Sakura when she was accused of being the mastermind, and in turn Sakura became enraged when Toko, as Genocide Jill, cut Hina on the arm. When Sakura's suicide note is found, it is mainly addressed to Hina.
Kenshiro is Sakura's boyfriend. In a Free-Time Event with Makoto, Sakura had admitted that she could not defeat Kenshiro in combat, and that he apparently only had months to live.

- In flashbacks, Sakura is shown to have had a much slimmer figure.
- The name “Oogami (大神)” can be translated as “large deity”.
- Sakura's given name, being written in hiragana, is somewhat ironic. That is because Japanese given names written in hiragana are most commonly (though not exclusively) female, and would be intuitively identified as such - contrasting with Sakura's muscular build which made some of her classmates initially mistake her for a man.
- Since Sakura's name (さくら) is written in the hiragana syllabary, it is impossible to understand its meaning just by reading it. However, it is safe to assume that the name is the hiragana spelling for the kanji 桜 or 櫻, which both mean "cherry" or "cherry blossom" (which is known for being very frail and fleeting, making it an ironic name for Sakura).
- In Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair, there is a large statue of Sakura in the Muscat House, and Nekomaru Nidai once told Hajime Hinata that he met the person depicted in the statue once in the mountains.
