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. 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 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] According to Kiibo, she might try punching others despite being the Ultimate Aikido Master, implying that she can be quite aggressive.[5]

Tenko takes pride in inventing the Neo Aikido along with her master. 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 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.[6]

Tenko 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.
