Tenko Chabashira (茶柱 転子 Chabashira Tenko) is a character featured in Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony and a participant of the New Killing School Life.

Tenko is titled as the Ultimate Aikido Master (超高校級の「合気道家」chō kōkō kyū no “aikidō-ka”). She is a practitioner of the martial art she created with her master, called "Neo Aikido".[2]


Tenko has a fair skin tone, sharp green eyes and long black hair put into two long pigtails. Her hair is held by long white ribbons, a large green bow with a white floral pattern and she also wears a purple headband. She wears a blue school uniform top that stops above her bellybutton, a frilly blue skirt, white stockings that end under the knee and zōri. She has a beauty mark under her mouth and she has a pink choker wbith a yellow bell.


Tenko is an incredibly noisy and generally cheerful person. She wears her emotions plainly and has a habit of yelling out in a loud voice to show her fighting spirit.[3] According to Kiibo, she might try punching others despite being the Ultimate Aikido Master, implying that she can be quite aggressive.[4]

Due to unknown reasons, she feels strong hatred towards boys, to the point of referring to them as "awful boys" (lit. replacing part of the normal word for boys with the kanji for death). She seems to believe that boys are much more likely to do negative and deceiving things than girls, like always being the first to lie and always shifting the blame right away.

She dislikes boys so much that even the nice things they do can cause her to react very negatively. For example, she doesn't like boys praising her. If a girl compliments her looks, she will respond humorously or modestly, but if a boy compliments her looks, her expression will die in an instant. She also never allows a boy to touch her, throwing him reflexively if they even attempt to try.

She also seems to panic in a class trial if she is suspected to be the culprit. She also refers to herself in third person.[5]

Kaede Akamatsu

Tenko has a surprised reaction and she heavily blushes when Kaede calls her cute while stating her surprise for a cute girl like Tenko doing a combative thing like aikido.


  • “You're blaming this crime on Tenko! Because guys will always shift the blame right away!”
  • “Lies always come from boys first!”
  • “An honest punch from he front is the pride of an aikido practitioner!”


  • Her first name, 転子 Tenko, means "rolling child". This is a reference to her talent, as aikido includes rolling in its techniques.
  • 茶柱 Chabashira (lit. "tea pillar"), is a figurative term referring to a how, when drinking green tea made with chopped tea stalks (see Kukicha), a few thin stems can go through the kettle into the drinker's cup and float around near the surface of the liquid. Chabashira specifically is when one such stalk ends up floating completely upright - an uncommon occurrence that is considered a lucky omen.
  • Some examples of other characters beside Tenko who also speak in third person within the series are Ibuki Mioda and Monaca Towa.
