Appearance

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 with a star-shaped adornment on the left side of her head. She wears a blue school uniform top that stops above her bellybutton, a frilly blue skirt, white socks with a blue stripe that end under the knee and zōri. She has a beauty mark under the left side of her mouth and she has a pink choker with a yellow bell.

Personality

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.[4] She also refers to herself in third person.[5]

Tenko can be slightly aggressive, sometimes quickly resorting to violence despite being the Super High School Level Aikido Master, insisting that it's self-defense.[6] She takes pride in inventing the Neo Aikido along with her master and wishes to use her skills to protect other girls. Throughout the game, she will constantly threat guys or Monokuma with her deadly Neo Aikido techniques, saying that it is very powerful. However, she admits that compared to Gonta Gokuhara's incredible power, she had no match for him.

Due to some issue in the past, 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 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.

Tenko occasionally has a more panicky side, as she seems to panic in a class trial if she is suspected to be the culprit, and overall tends to react strongly in humorous ways. She also gets very shy if a girl compliments her looks, blushing strongly and insisting that her looks definitely aren't good.

This strong reaction might be partially due to the fact that she has been confirmed to have attraction towards girls.
Spoilers end here.


Despite her loud and aggressive nature, she is polite to everyone, even boys, referring them with the formal suffix "-san". Her politeness is so powerful that it surpasses her hatred toward boys.

In her love hotel event, it's shown that she can have much more respect for a boy who is a fellow Neo Aikido practitioner, to the point of developing feelings for him. She is also very loyal to anyone she considers her best friend or a role model. This is seen in the way she risked her life in order to prevent Kaede Akamatsu from being executed, and her relationship with Himiko Yumeno.
