Santa Shikiba (色葉 田田田 Shikiba Santa) is a minor character mentioned in Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc.
Santa is the Ultimate Botanist (超高校級の「植物学者」chō kōkō kyū no “shokubutsu gakusha” lit. Super High School Level Botanist). He is mentioned only once in Danganronpa by title, and his name and appearance are only shown in the art book.
Santa wears a white coat over a plain white shirt, long light-brown pants and white boots. The collar of his coat is adorned with a flower-shaped pin. The lower half of his dark brown hair is trimmed while the upper half is shaped like two horns on both sides of his scalp - giving his hair the shape of the letter "U". He also has a widow's peak and a round nose.
Santa's official art shows him holding two blooming sakura branches.
The tale of Santa becomes available after the player clears the special route of the game.
- His given name is written as 田田田, which is the character ta, meaning "rice field", repeated three (san in Japanese) times. Literally, this nonexistent writing for "Santa" would mean "three fields."
- "Shikiba" (色葉) means "colored leaves".
