Appearance

Tsumugi is a tall young woman with long, knee length, cerulean hair which starts smooth and becomes wavy the lower it goes. Her eyes are a soft teal and round. She wears rimless glasses with white temples.

Her uniform consists of a knee long pleated skirt, adorned with six white buttons on her waist, her skirt seems to be held by suspenders. She wears an orange bow, black socks ending under the knee, and grey shoes. Her blazer has two pockets on both sides and is adorned by the same white buttons as her skirt.

She has been shown without her blazer in her promotional artwork, which shows an insignia of sort on her left breast.

Tsumugi states as a rather normal and plain-looking otaku.[3]

Personality

Tsumugi is an honors type student who speaks in a docile and gentle way, but she becomes very passionate when she talks about her favorite series or cosplays, having a habit of slipping in famous quotes from various sources into conversation.[4]

Tsumugi also tends to ignore people while she's in her thoughts, no matter how many times they try talking to her.

While Tsumugi is the Ultimate Cosplayer, she only enjoys making costumes, not wearing them. She is not really fond of people looking at her.[5]However, she hates using cosplayers who care more about standing out than love of the series, so she wears her own costumes as well, with love.[6]So in that case, she likes people looking at her when she wears her own costumes with love. She deeply loves cosplaying as she states that cosplaying is an expression of love.

Skills and Abilities

Ultimate Cosplayer

Despite her status as the Ultimate Cosplayer, Tsumugi actually doesn't have interest in cosplaying herself. Rather, she states that she enjoys recreating costumes more. She loves to create costumes, because it is like making a fictional character real, in a way. She is so popular that she has a corporate sponsorship so she became able to use even the most simply expensive materials without restraint. She states that they have as many people as the amount of people who came to see the first panda coming to Japan.[6]

She is also a well versed otaku in anime and manga references. In her promotional artwork, Tsumugi is featured with mannequins wearing lingerie and a wig, several paints and cosmetic brushes, as well as red thread and an object which could be interpreted as scissors. This could imply that her talent is multi-faceted.

In Chapter 1, Tsumugi states that she gets allergic if she cosplays as anyone that is real. In chapter 6, she proves her talent fully by accurately cosplaying as multiple characters from Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc and Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair. She is capable of matching their appearances, voices and mannerisms perfectly, making her imitations even more accurate than Ultimate Imposter's. However, by doing this, she also reveals that the Hope's Peak Academy Saga and all involved were nothing, but fiction within the Danganronpa V3 Universe.

Possibly as another reference to her talent, Tsumugi is capable of breaking the fourth wall and has a heightened awareness of fiction and reality.

During Rantaro Amami and Kaede Akamatsu's separate plans to reveal the mastermind, Tsumugi leaves the cafeteria and makes her way to the first-floor bathroom. In the back of the cleaning supplies closet of that bathroom was a hidden passage-way that connected to the secret room in the library. After witnessing Kaede's plan failing, Tsumugi immediately leaves the hidden room and bashes Rantaro Amami in the back of the head with a shot put while he's distracted, killing him instantly. She then proceeds to forge and alter the evidence to make it look like the crime was caused by the shot put dropped by Kaede Akamatsu. She retrieves Kaede's shot put then replaces it with her own, as well as Rantaro's survival perk mono-pad. She retreats back into the hidden room to dispose of the evidence, then rejoins everyone in the cafeteria as if nothing had happened. Kaede was fully manipulated into thinking that she accidentally killed Rantaro and was executed by Monokuma. No one suspected Tsumugi.
