Team Danganronpa (チームダンガンロンパ) is an organization in the Danganronpa series, introduced in Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony. They created the Danganronpa reality show, which is currently on its 53rd season - as such, they are effectively the true masterminds and main antagonists of the game.


Team Danganronpa is the group responsible for creating the Danganronpa television show, and with it, the real-life killing games such as the Killing Game Semester. They are shown to be a technologically adept group, being responsible for the creation of the EXISAL units and K1-B0. They also have advanced memory manipulation at their disposal, allowing them to mold their "contestants" as needed to make their personalities more appealing for the show, including making people think Kokichi Oma is a Remnant of Despair and giving Kaito Momota a chronic disease.

In each season of Danganronpa, the company kidnapped sixteen normal high school students to participate in the Killing Game. After the audition, they fabricated all of the students' past memories, personalities, and they also give each of them an Ultimate talent.

Currently, the only known people under their employ are Tsumugi Shirogane, K1-B0 (unknowingly), Monokuma and his children that take a role in the 53rd Killing Game Season.

After learning about the game's true nature, Shuichi Saihara and the other survivors stops playing along, boring the audience. In the end, K1-B0 sacrifices himself to finally end Danganronpa, killing Tsumugi, and destroying the set where the game was held. His self-destruction also creates a massive hole, literally breaking the fourth wall, ultimately destroying the whole Ultimate Academy for Gifted Juveniles. Shuichi, Maki Harukawa and Himiko Yumeno are the only survivors and while they are not sure what is true and what is lies, they appear to have a positive outlook and wonder that the world of Danganronpa could still be continuing somewhere. Team Danganronpa is implied to be still active.

There have been 53 past seasons of the Danganronpa-inspired Mutual Killing Games. The first 3 seasons were Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc, Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair, and Danganronpa 3: The End of Hope's Peak High School, despite being considered fictional in the universe of Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony.

Not much is known about a majority of the seasons or its participants excluding a few, but it's assumed they follow the same rules as the Killing Game Semester. It is heavily implied that Team Danganronpa has only recently started using real people for the Killing Game seasons.

Once the Ultimate Detective Study Center is found in Chapter 4, if the bookcase is investigated, files are revealed. These files showing previous seasons and only new files have photos, with older files having illustrations.

52nd Season

Some details of the 52nd Season of Danganronpa TV show come to light in Chapter 6 of Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony when Shuichi Saihara and Himiko Yumeno investigated Rantaro Amami's Study Center. During the investigation, they discover a disc that contained a recording made by Rantaro himself. In the recording he revealed he was in a previous Mutual Killing Game and was the only known survivor.

He explained that in the previous killing game, he was "executed" and forced to participate the next killing game, the 53rd Season, and had his talent of Super High School Level Adventurer be replaced with Super High School Level Survivor because of it.
