The Ultimate Gamer, huh? No matter where I am, I just need to play the games I like, but...
Oh, I wonder if there's anyone here who will play games with me... That's nice too, right?


I never thought I'd end up being class rep. But...it was fun.

Friendship Events[]

With Byakuya Togami and Usami[]

With Byakuya Togami and Usami
Why, good morning, Byakuya! You're looking well as ever today!
I've been pondering it for some time, but... What on earth *are* you?
Eh? What do you mean...what am I?
Your true identity...the reason behind your existence. Why are you at this academy?
Um...I'm Usami! Magical Miracle Girl ★ Usami! I'm here to teach everyone!
I'm not interested in that stupid story...
U-Um... I dunno how to respond to that...
Now, now... Usami might say some weird stuff from time to time, but she's sincere.
Oh, good morning, Byakuya.
Are you interfering with people in other classes now, too? You're quite the busy class rep.
Hmph...whether or not I'm in a different class right now doesn't matter.
Byakuya, if you're so curious about me, maybe we should have a nice chat some time! A student-teacher conference to foster mutual understanding between the two of us!
I decline. I've had enough of you and those insipid Monokubs...
Why are there so many damned plush animals running around here anyway? If I'd known this was such a dubious place, I would have never come to this school.
I know this all might seem strange, but... I think you're already used to it, Byakuya.
Plus, the Monokubs help us from time to time.
I have no desire to be helped by some strange teddy bear...
Um... What about me? I'm helpful from time to time too, right? Right...?

With Maki Harukawa[]

With Maki Harukawa
You're a preschool teacher, right, Maki?
Well...sort of.
Then, do you play on any game consoles with the kids!?
No. At my orphanage, they don't allow any game consoles.
Oh, I see... If that's the rule, then I guess you can't do anything about it.
Why did you ask me that?
I just thought maybe we could play some games together. I assumed you played with a lot of kids, so you would be good at fighting games.
Oh, that's why. Well, I can't meet up to your expectations.
Then...do you want to play a game that I recommend together with me?
...Huh? Why?
If the kids you took care of ever have the opportunity to get a game console... then you can show them a few moves, and they'd see how cool you are.
So, it's cool to be good at games?
For gamers and children, it is! You'd get a lot of respect!
I don't really care if I'm respected, though.
But also...I think it'll be fun. It's never too late to start gaming.
...If I feel like it.

With Tenko Chabashira and Himiko Yumeno[]

With Tenko Chabashira and Himiko Yumeno
Hey...do you two mind if I join?
You're more than welcome to join us, Chiaki! That's fine, right Himiko?
Oh, thank you. Don't mind if I do then. Um...so you must be Tenko, the Şablon:İmp, and Himiko, the Şablon:İmp.
I'm a mage.
A mage... They're useful in a party, and in many RPGs, they're at the center of the formation. Thank you for your hard work.
Hm, it seems you understand my true value.
Oh, my name is Chiaki Nanami. I'm the Şablon:İmp.
Of course, I know who you are! You're the president of your class! I heard from your teachers you're wonderful at leading girls and disciplining males!
Um...I'm only doing it because I was chosen. Well, I am enjoying it though.
I think it's awesome that you're having fun leading everyone. It would be great if you could get along with us, too!
Yeah. Let's play some games together next time.
Nyeeeh...I don't wanna.
How come!? Is it cuz I'm all you need!?
I never said that.
You should totally say that!
You two really get along.
Of course! We became best friends as soon as we met!
Your memory is as bad as Monotaro's. It's kinda worrying, actually.
I-Isn't that a little harsh!? But I'm elated that you're actually worried about me!
Yeah, you two really do get along...I think.

With Hajime Hinata[]

With Hajime Hinata
Oh, Hajime...you actually waited for me. Sorry for being late.
No, don't worry about that. Did something happen? I heard something about homeroom...
Yeah, it was the usual. Akane and Nekomaru started their intense workouts during class.
Oh, yeah, I can picture that. The classroom must have been a mess. And that's just "the usual" for you? That kind of thing never happens in the reserve course.
It's always chaotic, but it's fun. Although, I have to be careful no one breaks my game consoles during all the chaos.
That sounds pretty bad. I know that everyone relies on you, too...
No one really relies on me...but I help everyone, because I like them.
And that's why they rely on you.
I'm sure...everyone relies on you too, Hajime.
Well, you know...Fuyuhiko seems to like you, and Hiyoko is pretty attached to you... Ever since you started talking to Nagito, I feel like he's been warming up to us.
And Mikan looks happy when you're there... That goes for everyone else, too.
The people around me are pretty unique... maybe it's just easier for them to talk to me.
It's more fun when you're there, Hajime.
Well, it's not like I'm not having fun...
This is all because you brought us together, Chiaki. If not for you, I never would have met them.
Even if I did nothing, I'm sure you would've met the others. And they'd rely on you, like usual.
...Just kidding. But that is really how I see everyone when they're around you, Hajime.
When they're around me, huh? Sometimes I feel more like I'm getting dragged along...
Let's hold a game tournament, and go out somewhere with everyone again. I can't imagine hanging out with everyone without you there.
Yeah... Call me whenever.
Okay! So, what kind of game should we play today? Puzzle? Fighting? Or do you want to try your hands on a rhythm game?
Well, I did practise the fighting game from last week...
I'm definitely more of a match for you now. What do you think?
Oh, sounds good. I'm up for that challenge!

With Mahiru Koizumi and Mikan Tsumiki[]

With Mahiru Koizumi and Mikan Tsumiki
Phew, the exams are finally over.
It seems like everyone in class passed. That's good.
Yeah, the headmaster seemed to really like the photos in my portfolio, so I'm glad.
E-Everyone...thank you for your hard work!
You too, Mikan. Great job.
Th-Thank you! Um...I know there were some people who had given up at the start of the exams... If you feel sick, then please don't hesitate to stop by my room!
Yeah, when the time comes, I'll ask for your help.
Oh, yeah! How about we gather girls from our class and talk, while we bake and drink tea? Mikan said there were some people cramming for exams, so this might be a nice change of pace!
Oh, that sounds nice. Let's hold a game tournament, too. I'll bring lots of snacks.
... Um...ummm...
Mikan...have you ever baked before?
Oh, I said yes without thinking... I'm actually not too good at baking... I-I'm sorry I couldn't meet up to your expectations! Please forgive me!
You don't have to take it so seriously... I'm not very good at it, either.
Then, let's look up some recipes and do something simple with everyone. It'll be the same as looking up a guide before going on a capture mission.
Okay then, I'll go invite everyone else.
Mikan, do you want to look up some recipes with me?
Y-Yes! I'll try my best to be useful! I look forward to working with you! Ehehehe...

Seasonal Events[]

Sports Festival[]

Today is the summer sports festival... You're going to do your best in the three-legged race! But it's your first time ever doing a three-legged race. What will you do?
Let's work together
This is my first time doing a three-legged race. I look forward to working with you.
Oh...it's my first time too. As beginners, let's do our best to clear this co-op challenge.
I see... I am a little relieved to hear that.
The two of us shall work together. Just like in school dramas, let us work up a youthful sweat!
What school dramas are about sweating? Anyway, I look forward to working with you.
It's just like in rhythm games where you need to push two buttons at the same time, right?
You ran with Sonia at your own pace!
I'll quickly analyze the opponents
Oh...I'm sensing a strong opponent.
Oh, we're up against Chiaki! You seem like the indoorsy type. I'm glad it wasn't Akane or Pekom!
Hm, it's true I can't run like Akane or Peko, but...speed's not the only important stat here.
You're right. We're both not athletes, so we won't know until we try, right?
...You worked hard to compete with Junko, who was surprisingly fast!
I need to prepare my protective gear
I need to tie the rope around our legs correctly...
Huh...it's not working out...
There's a trick to it. Watch.
Oh, Kyoko...
Hmm...I see...
You tie it tight, so that the legs are firmly together. That's what's needed for competition.
Thanks, got it. If you're teaching this to your opponents... I wonder if a passionate rivalry will bloom.
It's no trouble. And besides, I don't think we'll lose just from that little tip.
Yeah, you're definitely my rival...I think. I can't lose.
...You had a fun battle with Kyoko!

School Festival[]

Today is the school festival... Your exhibit is an arcade where everyone can play together! You have a visitor right away... What kind of game will you invite them to play?
...Want to play a shooting game?
Ah, Galaga. How about a competition to see how many rounds we can each clear?
Let's do it! I won't lose!
Okay! Then I'm first!
M-Monokuma!? Where'd you come from!?
I've been here the whole time, Hajime! It's a bad idea to leave you two alone in a room together, so I made time to chaperone!
That's none of your business. Besides, we're just playing games. If you're busy, get out.
You say that, but...if you saw me naked, your eyes would explode.
No, you're always naked. You're naked right now...I think?
...That doesn't matter. Let's hurry up and play the game.
You fought against Hajime and Monokuma, who turned out to be surprisingly good at games!
...Want to play a puzzle game?
I'm comin' in! Is Master here!? What kind of puzzle we talkin' about!? The sexy kind!? Like a jumble of naked limbs!?
Huh, Toko...? Er...Genocide Jack?
Oh. Just some game room. My Master antenna was tingling, so I came here, but...
Hey, wait a minute! Do any of these games have adorable boys in them!?
Hm...? Are you talking about dating sims?
Sorry...I didn't set up any of those. They'd take too long to play anyway.
Oh, come on! Those kind of pretty boys show up in other places too!
I don't really get it... It sounds complicated.
Fandom is a strange place! You can get lost in it!
...Yeah, I can tell that by looking at you.
You couldn't play the puzzle game...
...Want to play a sports game?
Fine by me. I've always wanted to duel you, Ms. Nanami!
Oh, you seem confident. You probably play a lot of different genres, Hifumi.
Of course! But this must be a contest worthy of Chiaki Nanami, the Gaming Queen! We have sports, martial arts, quizzes, and puzzles at our disposal. A best of seven?
Or is that too much for a gamer like you, Ms. Nanami? How rude of me!
So...you want to have a lot of different events, right? Alright, let's do it.
...You won against Hifumi in many different genres of games!


Your last winter at the academy... Today is the Christmas party with your classmates!
You're toasting with juice, eating cake and snacks, playing games...it's very lively.
So what will you do now?
Hajime, let's play
We've got board games and card games, too. Playing analog is nice sometimes.
You're right. If it's against you, I know it'll be a good match, Chiaki.
I won't lose at board games that easily... I've played many bonus modes in games.
Like casinos in RPGs... Sometimes I want to play that more than the main game.
Then let's invite the others. I'm sure they'd want to join in, too.
Everyone's pretty pumped up, so it'll probably be an intense battle!
As I thought, that was really fun. Times like this where we can all gather... might be more important from now on.
Is that because...we're going to graduate?
I know that graduation won't be the end... but it'll be harder to meet, after this. So...we need to enjoy it while we can.
Chiaki, um... Are you free on New Year's?
Huh? New Year's?
Well, my birthday is on New Year's Day and... Kazuichi and Fuyuhiko said we should celebrate. I think they just want to use it as an excuse to go wild, but I thought I should ask everyone.
I can come too?
Of course. And if possible...it'd be a big help if you could invite the others.
Okay, leave it to me! I'll make sure everyone comes to your birthday party, Hajime!
That's exciting... We get another chance before graduation to play with everyone.
Yeah, I'm excited too...
But to be honest, it's a little embarrassing to use my birthday as an excuse...
...You made a promise to look forward to!
Nagito, are you having fun?
I saw you just watching from the corner so...I was wondering.
Of course I'm having fun. Everyone here is filled to the brim with hope.
I see...that's fine then. I still don't feel like I understand you, even after the three years we spent as classmates... I know that hope is really important to you, though, Nagito...
Hope is important...not just for me, but for everyone, right? Do you really think those who don't accept hope even exist?
Hmm...no, I guess not. I guess technically even if someone wanted the opposite of hope, that'd be hope to them.
It's just like you said, Chiaki. Everyone wants to see hope. I'm just a little more passionate than others about it. I think about hope all the time.
It's true. Not many people think about hope quite like you do.
I always believe in hope. With hope, we can triumph over any despair. I thought I'd be able to see amazingly strong hope at Hope's Peak... And there might be something I could do to help the symbols of hope shine...
That's what I thought. But are we going to graduate without anything happening?
I hope so... After we all graduate...we can spend time together happily.
I see... So that's your hope, huh Chiaki?
Maybe. Because...I really like this class.
Oh...I forgot something in my room
Oh, I didn't expect to run into you. Did you forget something in the dorms?
Oh, I guess I should've known you'd be able to figure that out at a glance, Kyoko.
It was simple. You're having a party today, and you're the class rep in charge. You *should* be in the dining hall, but because you aren't...
You probably even know what it was I forgot, huh?
...A present for someone. That's the only thing that you would leave in the middle of a party to go get.
Yeah, you're completely right.
Forgetting to bring such an important present... It's a critical hit of regret... But I'm glad I remembered it now. I want to give it to them today.
I hope they like it... It's a bunch of my most recommended games!
You're right. You put a lot of thought into it, I'm sure that they'll love it.
You promised Kyoko you'd talk again later and ran back to the party...

Appearances in Seasonal Events for Other Characters[]

With Chihiro Fujisaki[]

Your last winter at the academy...but you're too busy with research to be sad about graduation! You worked so hard that you didn't even realize it was Christmas Eve until the evening... It's not good to overwork yourself... How about a little break?
Maybe I'll get some tea in the dining hall
Oh, Chihiro... It feels like it's been a while since we've seen each other.
Um...it might be because I've been stuck in my room lately doing my research.
Me too... I was so focused on a new game that I was cooped up in my room.
I guess we've both been cooped for a while.
Hehe, yeah... I want to talk with everyone more, so I could walk around.
Yeah...good job on your project. Programmers are amazing. You've got my respect.
Huh? But...why?
Because my favorite games wouldn't exist without programmers.
It's a wonderful job that can create many different things.
Yeah, I suppose that is a good way of looking at it...
So Chihiro...do you make games?
U-Um...the research I'm doing right now doesn't necessarily have anything to do with games.
You talked about games and programming with Chiaki while drinking tea...

With Fuyuhiko Kuzuryu[]

Today is the summer sports festival... Events like this just aren't your style.
You want to go lay low for a while... Where do you go?
Maybe I'll go eat...
Ah, there you are, Fuyuhiko. The event's about to start.
Chiaki...did you come here looking for me?
Yeah, of course. I waited, but not everyone is ready yet.
Leave me alone. If it's starting, you should get back already.
Don't you want to come, Fuyuhiko? Isn't that why you're here instead of the dorms?
This festival only happens once a year... Relationships with people make memories.
...Right? Right?
Geez...you're so persistent. Fine okay, I'll go with you.
...It's not like I wanted to participate or anything.
...You were dragged along by Chiaki to participate in the sports festival after all.

With Izuru Kamukura[]

Today is the school festival... It's a boring event, but Usami forced you to participate.
To get her to leave you alone, you decide to walk around for a bit. Where do you go?
There's an exhibit in the school building
Oh...Izuru. This room isn't really an exhibit, it's just an arcade where we can play games.
That's fine. Time passes the same, regardless of what I am doing.
Aww, I lost...but it was a close battle.
I had a lot of fun.
Fun? Even though you lost with the one talent you have?
Losing is frustrating, but...I'm glad I was able to play with you Izuru. Besides...
...the game's not ever just because I lost once. We can keep playing...as long as we're friends.
...So let's have another battle! I won't lose this time!
Very well. Even though the outcome is the same no matter how many times we play.
...You played the game over and over again with Chiaki!

Your last winter at the academy... Graduation will be here before you know it.
Your classmates invited you to a Christmas party today... What do you do?
I'll get dragged along anyway, so I'll go
Izuru...thanks for coming today.
You came back without me having to come to get you... I feel so many emotions right now!
I simply bypassed an annoying conversation. I predicted that you'd come to get me anyway.
I'm happy to hear that. Until recently, you never would have come back on your own.
...I do not feel like I have changed.
Hmm...if something has changed, it's the distance between us.
We spent three years as classmates... There's no way nothing changed in that time.
I'm even starting to get a better win rate against you, Izuru.
I'm sure a lot of things changed for you since you came to this academy, too...
Chiaki has a point. If all you did was spend time by yourself...
I don't think you would've grown into the person you are today.
That single act of enrolling at Hope's Peak Academy...will result in great things someday.
Hmm... For once, you actually sound like a teacher.
Oh...that's true. Usami was a little teacherly right then.
I know, right!? I can rise to the occasion when necessary!
...Though I dunno how to feel about that "for once" remark.
You spent Christmas with your classmates...

With Korekiyo Shinguji[]

Today is the school festival... You are running the haunted house. A guest approaches...
Do you enjoy scary games as well?
A haunted house, huh? Yeah...that sounds like fun.
I'm sure you've played many horror games. Are you used to this kind of atmosphere?
Well...not in real life, but...I'm sure horror games are a good reference.
Um...if it's a horror game, I'll need to change my tactics depending on the available weapons...
...I would prefer if you refrained from attacking the actors.
Hm, got it. So it's a chase game.
...You felt uneasy as you watched Chiaki enter the haunted house.

With Maki Harukawa[]

Your last winter at the academy... Graduation will be here before you know it.
With so few months left in the school year, you are overcome by bittersweet nostalgia...
I won't waste time. I'll go back to my room.
Oh, there you are! I was looking for you, Maki!
Huh? Why were *you* looking for me?
Well...there's a game I want to play with you!
Oh, another game.
Surprise! Junko is letting us borrow her FPS game! Wasn't that unexpected!?
FPS? What's that?
Oh, an FPS is... It's a shooting game. You walk around in a map and use guns to shoot the enemy. Does that help you understand?
Hmm...I get the gist of it. So it's a shooting game, but why me?
Well, when we played games together the other day, you were really good.
You're rational when you're being chased, and you're good at micromanaging...
So, I thought you'd be able to enjoy an FPS game.
...I don't mind joining you for a bit.
Yay! Let's have fun the whole winter break.
Hold on...I only said for a bit.
You made a promise to play a game with Chiaki!

With Makoto Naegi[]

Today is the school festival... You went to a classroom doing an escape room!
Let's show some teamwork and escape together! What do you do?
I'll check my surroundings
Yeah, that's a good idea. For games like this...the first thing you should do is find all the clues.
You're awfully calm, Şablon:İmp...
Action games, RPGs, and of course logic games can have investigation and puzzle elements... So I'm definitely used to solving things like this, but...
I'm usually playing these kinds of games by myself, so playing it co-op is new.
You're right... Thinking about it like that makes me kind of excited!
Excited... Yeah...I agree. Looking forward to working with you, Makoto.
You worked hard on solving the mystery with Chiaki!

With Tenko Chabashira[]

Today is the exciting summer sports festival! You're gonna be in the three-legged race! It's unfortunate that Himiko is in a different event, but...let's do our best anyway!
I must greet the runner next to me!
I'm sure you know this already, but I'm Tenko Chabashira! Let's have a fair match!
Oh, you're the runner in the next lane, right? Yeah, okay. Let's do this.
Krgh...you threw me off for a bit there... You must be an impressive tactician, Chiaki!
...Um, I didn't mean it like that.
But I've played a lot of strategy games. It feels good when your tactics pay off.
You listened to Chiaki talk about games, until the race started...

With Tsumugi Shirogane[]

Today is the fall school festival... You decided to exhibit all the cosplay you've made so far! Let's greet the people who have stopped by!
I knew you'd come!
Welcome to my exhibit, Chiaki.
I saw some cosplay outfits of game characters from outside, so I decided to take a look!
Umm, I think you've probably played a lot more games than I have, so...
"I want to become a game character..." "I want to live in a game world..."
...Have you ever thought like that?
Ummm...not really. Although, I do love playing games.
I see... That's a shame.
Your outfits are so well-made. I can instantly tell which game character's clothes these are. It's as if the character jumped right out of the screen... I can see why you'd be into this.
R-Really? Thank you...
If you start to get interested in cosplay, talk to me any time. I'll fully support you!
You showed Chiaki lots of video game character cosplay!

With Usami[]

Today is the summer sports festival... Let's watch everyone play sports and get along!
...At least, that was the plan before you got chosen to fill in for the volleyball event!
I dunno if I can even play volleyball...
Hmm...your hands are round so I get why you're insecure, but it'll be fine...probably.
At least you take things seriously unlike Monokuma... I can trust you.
Th-Thank you, Chiaki... I'm everyone's teacher, after all. I shouldn't be such a Negative Nancy.
Yeah, let's do our best. There are games where animal mascot characters are super strong.
You went all-out with Chiaki and the others!
