Ultimate Hope, also called Super High School Level Hope (超高校級の「希望」chō kōkō kyū no “kibō”), is a title given to multiple people in Danganronpa series.
The Ultimate Hope is a title given to Izuru Kamukura, Makoto Naegi, Hajime Hinata (the original form of Izuru) and Ki-Bo. Despite the similar names, their functions are widely different. In Izuru's case, he obtained the title of Ultimate Hope when Hajime participated in the Izuru Kamukura Project, causing him to obtain all talents. In Makoto's case, his title was given by Kyoko Kirigiri due to his optimism and his ability to spread hope. Later in the series, Ki-Bo earns the title as the Ultimate Hope for motivating the remaining survivors to not give up for despair and sacrificing himself to blow up the whole Ultimate Academy for Gifted Juveniles alongside him. 
Skills and Abilities
The traits of the Ultimate Hope vary between bearers of the title, but all have the ability to inspire great hope in the face of despair. This can take many forms:
- Izuru was intended to spread hope by having every talent known to humankind, allowing him to act as a paragon for others to aspire to and lead the human race into a golden age.
- Makoto uses a combination of charisma, logic, and quiet optimism to encourage others to better themselves in the face of adversity, advocating teamwork and discussion of ideas to overcome challenges.
- Similar to Makoto, Ki-Bo's ability to inspire hope stems largely from his ability to verbally motivate others to push forward despite seemingly overwhelming odds. However, he is also perfectly willing to take direct action in the name of hope, up to and including sacrificing himself to give his friends a chance.
All bearers of the title Ultimate Hope seem to share a great determination; once their mind is set on a task, nothing short of death will stop them from trying to complete it.
