Fuyuhiko Kuzuryu

Some say shattering the cup is a bad omen, but I prefer it this way. I mean, if you break something, that means it can't be broken ever again.

Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair

Fuyuhiko Kuzuryu (九頭龍 冬彦), is a student of Hope's Peak Academy's Class 77-B, and a participant of the Killing School Trip featured in Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair. His title is the Ultimate Yakuza (超高校級の「極道」 lit. Super High School Level Gangster).

He, along with Class 77-B, return in Danganronpa 3: The End of Hope's Peak High School to explore their school life leading up to The Tragedy.


Fuyuhiko Kuzuryuu Fullbody Sprite (1)

He is a slim young man known for having a refined face, sometimes coming off as a “baby face”. Because of his fairly short build, Fuyuhiko generally presents an overly aggressive demeanor to assert that he is, in fact, a tough gangster. He has dusty blond crew cut hair, with a distinct pair of curved lines shaved on each side of his head. He also has freckles along the bridge of his nose and a birthmark near his mouth on the right side. His eyes are gold, and he has permanent blush marks on both cheeks.

Befitting his title, Fuyuhiko dresses in traditional yakuza fashion: well-tailored suits. In the game, he wears a two-piece suit consisting of a dark pinstripe jacket and pants over a white dress shirt. His tie is brown-black with an animal skull emblem on it, and he wears black dress shoes with a platform heel. On his left lapel is a pin that is in the shape of the emblem of the Kuzuryu family, and he wears two silver rings on his right hand. He later wears a black eyepatch with a white, round dragon pattern.

As the Ultimate Despair, he wears a black fedora, suit and a jacket, as well as a long scarf hanging loose and untied on his shoulders. His right eye was implied to have been replaced by Junko's eye, and as such, he wears an eyepatch with a golden dragon pattern. During Side: Hope, Fuyuhiko has ditched his eyepatch and a vertical scar is seen where his eye used to be.

In Despair Arc, for his Hope's Peak uniform, Fuyuhiko wears a white long-sleeved button-up shirt secured by a pale teal necktie underneath a pastel-brown waistcoat with a grid pattern. He pairs this with black school slacks and the same pair of shoes he wears in DR2.


Fuyuhiko is initially incredibly stand-offish and rude to the other students on the island. He claims he's not going to play at being friends with anyone, and when he is questioned about this in Chapter 1, he states clearly that he would not hesitate to kill any one of the others. He makes frequent references to his yakuza background and seems adamant at presenting a lone wolf attitude. Fuyuhiko doesn't simply want to make friends but considers it not worth his time and beneath him. Despite this, as early as chapter 1, he shows signs of this perhaps not being all true, with him "happening to walk by" the lodge where the other students were having a party, despite claiming that he had no interest in going.

When Fuyuhiko does interact with the others (by choice or otherwise), his attitude is combative and irritable. He's easily angered, often threatening and/or insulting other people when they disagree with or complain about his actions. He frequently uses the word boke (a particularly pejorative way of calling someone an idiot, often translated as all sorts of profanity), and will punctuate his statements in an argument with it. He avoids any proper relationships and is used to being treated with caution by everyone, even to the point of threatening to murder someone, especially Mikan Tsumiki. He acts similarly around Mikan to how Hiyoko Saionji does. In particular he despises Mahiru Koizumi because of her stern attitude and refusal to back down to his threats.

After deciding to change in Chapter 3, because of Peko's sacrifice and him realizing his own mistakes, Fuyuhiko becomes more sociable and avoids bad-mouthing people to the best of his abilities. He even seems to become one of the group's most loyal and steadfast members, though still short-tempered and impulsive. He tries to help others and is shown to openly care about them, even Nagito Komaeda when he was about to die from Despair Disease. Peko's sacrifice is a sensitive subject for him. He takes over Mahiru's role as the tough but fair member of the group, always being on everyone's case, especially Kazuichi Soda's, but also being very helpful and willing to deal with anyone's problems. He's also very level headed in spite of his bad temper and is very intelligent.

In his free-time events, Fuyuhiko is revealed to have self-esteem issues concerning his status as the Ultimate Yakuza and the clan's heir. He does not believe he deserves the title, though he grows out of this with Hajime's company. He states that he wants to be strong on his own, and not to simply rely on his family's power to get ahead in life. His goal is to be strong enough to lead his family, rather than to be strong because he leads his family. Because of his insecurities, he is also particularly sensitive about his appearance, as people would expect a big, muscular man to lead a yakuza family, and Fuyuhiko's appearance is the opposite of that (except for the man part). It is suggested that it would not be out of the question for him to react violently if someone were to use the word "baby face" in reference to him. Fuyuhiko enjoys eating sweets, such as fried dough cookies, which he considers unmanly and shameful and thus tries to keep a secret. He is also ashamed because he doesn't have any tattoos like "real yakuza" do.

Fuyuhiko takes duty very seriously, and if there's someone who he can trust, he will open his heart and cooperate with them. Despite having no compunctions about murder or framing others for his crimes, he takes more trivial violations of honor and moral codes seriously. For instance, he is strictly against underage drinking, underage driving and teenage sex and is very critical of Kazuichi for his constant attempts to flirt with Sonia Nevermind. In Danganronpa 3, it is revealed that he is one of the few students that attended the class regularly, even though he didn't have to. He also desperately tried to stop Kazuichi from molesting Sonia when they were under the effect of aphrodisiacs.


Ultimate Yakuza[]

Danganronpa 2 Fuyuhiko Kuzuryu English Game Introduction

Fuyuhiko was born as the heir of Kuzuryu Clan and was scouted by Hope's Peak Academy as the Ultimate Yakuza. However, he believes that his talent is nothing more than just bragging rights. He says that he only has yakuza blood but doesn't have any qualities of a yakuza.

Fuyuhiko thinks that his last name is a heavy burden for him. As long as he holds his last name, he will always be dealing with violence and death until he gets used to seeing people's deaths every single day. People who look at him will stay cautious, not wanting to be involved with the Kuzuryu Family. He often sees his parents fight and nearly getting killed in the aftermath of their fights. Like with Peko he has a somewhat essentive knowledge of how to take a life considering his profession shown by how quickly he came up with a murder plan for Mahiru in the second chapter.

Fuyuhiko states that he never deserved to become the Ultimate Yakuza, as he says that the one who deserves to have that title is none other than his little sister, Natsumi Kuzuryu. However, what makes Fuyuhiko earn his title as the Ultimate Yakuza are his pride and strong willpower. He shows his apologies to Hiyoko by slitting his own stomach so that he could prove to her that he felt guilty over Peko and Mahiru's deaths, and tried to redeem himself and to be more responsible and friendly towards others. When Hiyoko sees his sudden change and mocks him, Fuyuhiko doesn't take her words as insults and in turn, listens to her words so that he can change for the better.

Unlike the other yakuza, Fuyuhiko has a liking towards eating sweets such as fried dough cookies, which he states that it was embarrassing for a yakuza like him. He also doesn't tattoo his body and hates people who disobey rules that applied on their environment. At the end of his Free Time Events, Fuyuhiko believed that he will change after he survived and escaped from the Mutual Killing Game.

Prior to The Tragedy[]

Fuyuhiko is the heir to the Kuzuryu yakuza clan. However, the clan believed he had no qualities of the yakuza and did not deserve the title. His younger sister, Natsumi, was considered by many to be much more worthy of the role. The Clan even believed she was the reincarnation of her deceased uncle who was known as the strongest Kuzuryu in history. She was given the chance to take her brother's place, but she declined due to caring about her brother. She didn't wish to lead the Clan, believing she was so amazing because she was Fuyuhiko's sister.

Along with having a good relationship with his sister, Fuyuhiko was also very close with Peko, albeit due to different reasons. Peko, abandoned as a newborn, was raised together with him since birth and served as his personal assassin.

Peko was always there by Fuyuhiko's side when he needed her. When Fuyuhiko's parents had their constant fights and few times nearly killed their own son in the aftermath of their fights, Peko protected him. When Fuyuhiko and Peko went to the zoo at one point when they were children, he challenged the king of the monkeys to a fight, and Peko had no choice but to join in the fray to protect him. She thought that Fuyuhiko had a handsome smile at that time. Fuyuhiko was also once kidnapped as a child along with Peko. They both succeeded in fleeing, but ended up getting lost in a mountain. Peko desperately tried to cheer up Fuyuhiko, but she ended making him cry because he could sense Peko's fear and anxiety, and because she was unfamiliar with smiling and showing similar warm emotions. However, they were finally saved because of Peko's ability as a swordswoman. Since Fuyuhiko was in 2nd grade, he no longer cried over anything, including losing a fight.

Fuyuhiko grew to dislike his reliance on Peko, as he was already considered weak among the yakuza and he hated it when Peko was treated as a mere tool. Furthermore, both Fuyuhiko and Peko appeared to have romantic feelings for each other, but neither confessed as their relationship was obviously complicated.

As a teen, Fuyuhiko attended Suzuran High School before enrolling in Hope's Peak Academy as the Ultimate Yakuza, in Class 77-B. Because he disliked crowding and being too familiar, he kept a bit of distance between himself and his classmates. Peko enrolled in the school with him, as the Ultimate Swordswoman, though they agreed they would act just like ordinary classmates.

During his time at Hope's Peak Academy, Fuyuhiko was potentially involved in a series of murders. His little sister was killed by a fellow student named Sato, who covered it up along with Mahiru Koizumi, blaming it on a serial pervert. As an act of revenge, Fuyuhiko killed Sato in the same way that she killed his sister Natsumi, hitting her in the head with a metal baseball bat, killing her instantly.

Danganronpa 3: The End of Hope's Peak High School - Despair Arc[]

Fuyuhiko returns in Danganronpa 3 - Despair Arc, where its story focuses on the story of the Remnants of Despair during The Biggest, Most Awful, Most Tragic Event in Human History.

Episode 01 - Hello Again, Hope's Peak Academy[]

Despite the school stating that attending class was not mandatory, Fuyuhiko attended class along with Mahiru, Hiyoko Saionji, Sonia, and Mikan Tsumiki. He was angered by the fact that his supposed homeroom teacher, Koichi Kizakura, was once again boozed away and abandoned the class after a new assistant homeroom teacher, Chisa Yukizome entered the class.

When Chisa told everyone to go out with her to search for their other classmates, Fuyuhiko refused to and was then threatened by Chisa, stating that she was willing to go to great lengths of teaching, making him impressed by her resolve.

Throughout the day, Fuyuhiko and the others managed to retrieve almost all of the students of Class 77-B. He returned to the class and was asked by Chisa to clean the classroom with the others as she left to retrieve two remaining students.

After returning to the classroom, Chisa was happy to see that Fuyuhiko and the others had waited and that the classroom was clean. When the students once again bring up the fact they didn't have to go to class, so long as they have their talent, Chisa reminded them that talent isn't everything, and wanted them to build strong relationships and "hope" with each other.

Episode 02 - My Impurest Heart for You[]

Fuyuhiko and his classmates took cover on the other side of the classroom during Akane Owari and Nekomaru Nidai's deadly training session. Fuyuhiko prevented Peko from getting involved in the fight.

Later after they repaired the classroom, Fuyuhiko and the others played games that Chiaki Nanami brought. He, Nagito Komaeda, Kazuichi, and Teruteru Hanamura played a monopoly-like game. He was impressed by Nagito's luck that managed to save him from defeat and won the game in an instant.

During the break time, Fuyuhiko and his classmates ate nikujaga that Hiyoko and Teruteru cooked. Unfortunately, Fuyuhiko and the others were greatly affected by the aphrodisiacs that Hiyoko secretly added during the cooking process. Despite that, Fuyuhiko desperately tried to prevent Kazuichi from molesting the defenseless Sonia.

The next day after he and the others recovered, Chisa gathered them in their class and announced that she elected Chiaki as their class representative. Fuyuhiko said that he had no problem with his teacher's decision.

Episode 03 - A Farewell to All Futures[]

At beginning of the episode, Fuyuhiko and his classmates walked past Hajime Hinata heading toward the Main Course building.

Fuyuhiko and Peko talked in an alley, near the school, to avoid being discovered by their classmates. He informed Peko that his younger sister, Natsumi, entered the Reserve Course department after she asked their dad for it so she could follow him to Hope's Peak Academy. He prevented Peko from checking on her, despite the fact that he had always known that his sister had a bad attitude towards everyone. When Ibuki Mioda spotted them, Fuyuhiko quickly left the scene, acting like nothing had happened between him and Peko.

Several days later, Fuyuhiko heard the news of his sister's murder and went to a morgue in a hospital to check his late sister's body. Fuyuhiko looks at her body, half sad and angry.

Episode 04 - The Melancholy, Surprise, and Disappearance of Nagito Komaeda[]

Fuyuhiko couldn't concentrate in class because of his little sister's death, and he thus didn't listen to Chisa's announcement about the upcoming annual practical exam.

Fuyuhiko and the others had already heard the news about Chisa's transfer to the Reserve Course and the bombing incident in the gym involving one of his classmates, Nagito. Fuyuhiko was moved by Chisa's speech to keep moving forward together as a class.

Episode 05 - The Beginning of the End[]

Fuyuhiko attended Chisa's welcome back party with his classmates. At first, he didn't want to go until he saw how hard Chiaki worked to organize the party. When Kazuichi and Teruteru informed that to Chisa, he blushed fiercely and refused to admit it.

Episode 06 - A Despairfully Fateful Encounter[]

Fuyuhiko was packing his stuff with Peko's help. He said that Peko has been helping him with his stuff but hasn't taken care of her stuff yet. Fuyuhiko picked up Peko's stuff and Peko told him he mustn't, but Fuyuhiko simply brushed her objection off. Ibuki saw this exchange and questioned when they got so close. Mikan thought it was nice that Fuyuhiko and Peko have gotten close. Fuyuhiko stammered, saying that it's just a coincidence.

Episode 07 - The Biggest, Most Atrocious Incident in Hope's Peak Academy's History[]

Peko and her classmates watch Gundham Tanaka demonstrate his control over a bear in the class. Whe the class observes Mikan and Ryota are missing from class, Fuyuhiko comments that they have gotten closer lately. Later, when the Reserve Course riots outside of Hope's Peak, everyone watches in fear and apprehension while Fuyuhiko and Peko calmly wait at the back of the class.

Episode 08 - The Worst Reunion by Chance[]

Fuyuhiko responded with disdain to Peko's comment about the Reserve Course riot being a parade, and said he didn't like it. When the class wondered why Mikan hasn't come to class, Fuyuhiko said he had a contact go to her house, and look for her, but she wasn't there. Nagito returned after his suspension and told the class he saw Mikan in the west district. Fuyuhiko and the others went out to search for Mikan. He paired up with Mahiru Koizumi and Hiyoko Saionji. Hiyoko called out one of the usual insults to Mikan, and Fuyuhiko said she wouldn't respond to that even if she heard it.

Episode 09 - Chisa Yukizome Doesn't Smile[]

Fuyuhiko and the rest of the class reconvene at the school classroom as they are unable to find Mikan, assuming what Nagito told them was false information. Chiaki reaches the classroom with an unconscious Nagito, explaining to them that Chisa is in danger, Fuyuhiko becomes worried by this but agrees to help.

Mikan later reappears, with an injured Peko in her arms, Fuyuhiko immediately runs to her aid and holds her in his own arms, Peko commanding her 'young master' to run although he refuses this. Despite Peko's protest, Fuyuhiko seeks to avenge the suffering Mukuro has caused her. Nagito convincingly makes clear that it will be dangerous and there is a possibility of them dying, although Fuyuhiko wishes to go despite the danger. Nagito explains that he was simply testing how strong hope was as a stepping stone, Fuyuhiko becomes angered at him being so indirect.

The Ultimate Imposter reveals his true identity, to Fuyuhiko's shock along with the rest of the class although they come to accept it quickly.

After leaving the Main Course building, the Reserve Course students seek to take them on in battle to open placements on the Main Course, Fuyuhiko and the class go on ahead, leaving Nekomaru and Gundham to fend them off.

Fuyuhiko and the rest of the class, excluding Nekomaru and Gundham, begin their approach to Junko's lair by following the descending stairway.

Episode 10 - Smile at Despair in the Name of Hope[]

Fuyuhiko and the others continue their approach from the descent of the stairway to the long, lit corridor, in their attempt to find and rescue Chisa. Mikan is finally able to catch up with the class, Fuyuhiko immediately inquiring as to where Chiaki is, Mikan explains that she has twisted her ankle and is resting in one of the nearby rooms. In the middle of their search for Chisa, they find Nekomaru and Gundham, and the two rejoin the group, pleasing Fuyuhiko. Later on, they reach a large red door. Mikan presses a button to open the door, Fuyuhiko and the class follow her insides and find themselves in a room, mirroring that of a trial room.

The monitors on the walls of the room switch on, and reveal Junko on the screen. After a bit of exposition, Junko starts Chiaki Nanami's Punishment while the rest of the class is forced to watch it. Everyone tries desperately to take their eyes off the screen, but is unable to.

Once Chiaki reaches the "goal" in her execution, she opens the door. She sees Fuyuhiko, the rest of the class, and Chisa on the other side. Once she reaches for Chisa's hand, spikes appear from under the ground and stab Chiaki everywhere on her body. The class, besides Nagito and Mikan, is devastated by this, and is brainwashed into despair.

Episode 11 - Goodbye, Hope's Peak Academy[]

Fuyuhiko and the rest of the class have returned to the classroom, receiving their final lesson before graduation. Chisa stated that she has been honored to be their teacher and started reading a letter she prepared. Fuyuhiko and the rest of the class clap with gratitude.

After the speech, red lights turn on, and Chisa started to cry. The patterned swirls return in their eyes as they all make a declaration of what they will do upon graduation. Fuyuhiko expressed he and Peko will "lead their people down the right path". After bidding her class a final farewell, Chisa activated a bomb that fakes the death of the Class 77-B. Fuyuhiko and her class stand outside the school grounds as they watch Hope's Peak Academy's destruction.

Chisa's narration later reveals Fuyuhiko and Peko helped the world fall into despair by killing everyone in the Japanese Diet, as they are seen standing back to back surrounded by dead bodies.

During The Tragedy[]

Fuyuhiko became a part of the Ultimate Despair group that was founded by Junko. The members of Ultimate Despair did all kinds of horrible things during the Tragedy, causing despair all over the world. For example, he and Peko entered the Japanese Diet and slaughtered all those within.

After Junko was executed, Fuyuhiko took Junko's right eye and attached it to his own eye socket.

The remnants of Despair are later found by Future Foundation. Makoto Naegi plans to undo Junko's influence by putting them into the Neo World Program, but the program is taken over by Alter Ego Junko, right according to the Ultimate Despair's plan.

Danganronpa 3: The End of Hope's Peak High School - Future Arc[]

Episode 01 - Third Time's the Charm[]

At the beginning of the episode, it shows a flashback of the Ultimate Despair's activities and war with Future Foundation. In it, Fuyuhiko stood in front of his brainwashed subordinates to face with Branch leaders of Future Foundation. He is seen ordering Peko to attack the leader of Future Foundation, Kazuo Tengan, but he was quickly covered by Kyosuke Munakata. The attack was later reinforced by Nekomaru and Akane, but eventually they were all captured by the Future Foundation.

Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair[]

Prologue - Welcome to Dangan Island! Panic at the Heart-Throbbing School Trip!?[]

Fuyuhiko was one of the students who did not panic when they were transported to Jabberwock Island. He, along with everyone else, went exploring after Usami dismissed him.

Fuyuhiko is first seen at Hotel Mirai, when Hajime tried to talk to him. Immediately, Fuyuhiko acts defensively, stating that he doesn't want to get friendly with anybody. Before things can go astray, Nagito tells him that they are just there for introductions. Fuyuhiko is at first confused, but soon goes back to his usual self. He begrudgingly introduces himself, saying that he doesn't plan on becoming friends with any of the others, leading Hajime to silently compare him to Hiyoko. Fuyuhiko then tells Hajime to leave if he has nothing else to say.

Chapter 1 - Destination Despair[]

During Chapter 1, Fuyuhiko refuses to interact with others, although this is because of his attitude. It is implied that Fuyuhiko did want to join the party with the others, but didn't because he was embarrassed.

Due to Fuyuhiko's absence at the party, he eventually became a minor suspect in the murder of the Ultimate Imposter. His name was cleared after Chiaki Nanami revealed that she and Monomi saw him wandering in front of the hotel. He also showed the first hints of his true relationship with Peko, immediately jumping to her defense when suspicion was directed towards her.

Chapter 2 - Sea and Punishment, Sin and Coconuts[]

During Chapter 2, Fuyuhiko is still rather aloof and does not wish to interact with anyone, eating at the diner on the second island instead of the Hotel Restaurant like everyone else.

Fuyuhiko becomes the first person to complete the "truth" route of the second chapter's motive, Twilight Syndrome Murder Case. As his reward, he receives an envelope filled with photos that seemingly confirm the events of the game to be related to the murders of Sato and Natsumi. He sends this envelope to Mahiru, hoping to meet her to confirm whether the accident of the Murder Case is real or not. However, Mahiru only begins avoiding him, which Fuyuhiko takes as proof that the events of the game are true.

Driven by revenge, Fuyuhiko enlists Peko to help him isolate and kill Mahiru. Learning that Mahiru plans to meet with Hiyoko at the second island's beach house to discuss the photos he sent her, Fuyuhiko forges messages to both girls, telling them arrive at the beach house at different times. After Peko intercepts and neutralizes Hiyoko, Fuyuhiko waits for Mahiru to arrive, planning to kill her with a metal baseball bat as an ironic nod to how his sister was killed. However, at the same time, he is wrestling with misgivings about his scheme, whether from fear of failure or a simple crisis of conscience.

When Mahiru arrives, Fuyuhiko confronts her about her knowledge of the photos he sent her, explaining their connection to the events of Twilight Syndrome Murder Case. However, the conversation is derailed when Mahiru realizes that Fuyuhiko killed Sato, prompting her to lecture him on the immorality of taking a life in revenge. Her words drive Fuyuhiko into a rage, and he goes for the bat, only for Peko to grab it and kill Mahiru first. Fuyuhiko is stunned and horrified, thinking Peko is betraying him so that she could become the blackened and leave the island herself, but grudgingly follows her urging to escape through the tunnel when she claims that she has a plan. On his way out of the area, Fuyuhiko is spotted by Hajime when he and Kazuichi are infiltrating Sonia's beach party.

During the Class Trial, Fuyuhiko is very defensive over Peko, doing whatever he can to pull suspicion away from her. His fervent defense of the Ultimate Swordswoman draws increasing suspicion from the others, especially given his previous aloof demeanor. Ultimately, the group shelves the matter and votes Peko as the culprit, much to Fuyuhiko's distress.

After the vote, Peko unveils her true plan, their shared past, and her role as Fuyuhiko's bodyguard, declaring that she is nothing but a tool of his will. As such, Peko claims that Fuyuhiko is the true architect of Mahiru's murder - and since the students voted for her instead, he has won his freedom at the expense of everyone else's lives. However, Nagito points out that Peko's entire argument relies on her opinion that Fuyuhiko sees her as a tool, prompting the other students to press him for the truth. Despite Peko's pleas and his own desire to leave the island, Fuyuhiko is unable to call her a tool, grimly stating that he wouldn't want to survive that way (meaning he would have been willing to survive by killing Mahiru himself and having Hiyoko voted as the murderer, as originally planned). As Peko resigns herself to her fate, Fuyuhiko begins to break down, telling Peko that he never considered her to be a tool. As Monokuma initiates the punishment, Fuyuhiko tearfully begs Peko not to leave him, declaring that he only ever wanted her as a person, not as a tool.

Fuyuhiko is brought along to Peko's execution. He attempts to save her from an army of marionettes, only to be slashed by Peko herself, who Monokuma is controlling with a Peko doll. With his right eye badly injured, he passes out. Peko embraces her master, inadvertently causing her enemies to stab him repeatedly as they attack her.

After the execution, Mikan reports that Fuyuhiko's injuries are extremely severe. Monomi says that Monokuma has a responsibility to save his life, since he wasn't the blackened this time (according to Monokuma's rules, only the culprit of a murder can be punished with death if they are correctly identified by the others). Unable to defy his own rules, Monokuma summons an ambulance and sends Fuyuhiko away for treatment.

Chapter 3 - Trapped by the Ocean Scent[]

Fuyuhiko is taken to the hospital found on the third island. Although heavily bandaged and still weak from his injuries, he appears to be recovering - however, he refuses to speak to any visitors.

Fuyuhiko eventually makes a full recovery, save for his right eye, which was damaged beyond repair. As a result, he begins wearing an eye patch adorned with a white dragon design. During his recovery, he resolves to change himself for the better.

The morning after being discharged from the hospital, Fuyuhiko goes to the restaurant at breakfast. He greets the others in an exaggerated fashion, stating that he'll be able to greet the others every single day and every single morning. The others are confused, but glad about this, with the exception of Hiyoko, who is still grieving over the death of Mahiru. Hiyoko berates Fuyuhiko, blaming him for Mahiru and Peko's deaths and wishing he'd die in turn. Fuyuhiko agrees with Hiyoko and attempts to commit public harakiri. Mikan, Kazuichi, and Nekomaru immediately bring him back to the hospital, berating him for his selfish act after their efforts to save him.

Hiyoko and Fuyuhiko reconcile at the party celebrating Fuyuhiko's return at the Titty Typhoon music venue after Ibuki invites them. However, the party is interrupted when Akane challenges Monokuma to a fight on the beach of the first island. Nekomaru takes the hit from Monokuma's bazooka in order to protect Akane.

When the Despair Disease is released as the third motive by Monokuma, Fuyuhiko is unaffected by it. Stating that he does not value his own life, Fuyuhiko volunteers to stay at the hospital along with Mikan and Hajime to look after the ones with the disease. During this time, he walks in on Mikan and Hajime sharing a cot and furiously berates them for their apparent lasciviousness.

When the murder occurrs, Fuyuhiko, Hajime, Mikan, and Chiaki break through the music venue door which was glued by an adhesive. During the investigation, Fuyuhiko is tricked by the culprit after discovering a drumstick broken in half, which makes him believe that the door was jammed with that drumstick.

Chapter 4 - Do Ultimate Robots Dream of Clockwork?[]

Fuyuhiko, along with everyone else, is shocked to discover Nekomaru reborn as a robot. Fuyuhiko is disgusted at Monokuma for messing around with Nekomaru's body. When they discover access to the fourth island, Fuyuhiko rides the roller coaster with everyone else for a prize given by Monokuma; a file about the Future Foundation.

While at the Strawberry House, Fuyuhiko tells Akane she is responsible for what happened to Nekomaru because he sacrificed himself for her, and that she should thank Nekomaru a lot. Akane is baffled, never having even considered the idea that she is to blame for what happened to Nekomaru.

Fuyuhiko stays at the lounge. Not long after that, he sees Nekomaru go to the first floor to attend the Monokuma Tai Chi, not aware that Nekomaru's murder occurrs after that.

Fuyuhiko thwarts Nekomaru's murderer, Gundham Tanaka, by staying at the lounge when Gundham wanted to return to his room. He is also requested by Nagito to check every clock on both Strawberry and Grape Houses, proving that all of the clocks except Nekomaru's alarm clock were tampered with by Gundham. During the trial, he nearly yells at Gundham angril; causing Gundham to sweat in a slightly anxious way, telling him to not panic, and he was seemingy for his outlandish remarks, thinking he doesn't understand the situation of being backed into a corner as the killer. He is baffled with the proof that Gundham used his Four Dark Devas of Destruction to press Nekomaru's Goodnight Button, thinking it's impossible for small mammals to carry out such a big task.

Chapter 5 - Smile at Hope in the Name of Despair[]

As Nagito plans to bomb the islands in the fifth chapter, Fuyuhiko stands by Akane as she restrains Nagito, after it was deemed too dangerous to let him wander around without supervision.

Chapter 6 - This is the End Goodbye Academy of Despair[]

In the final class trial, Fuyuhiko decides, along with the others, not to graduate after an awakened Hajime convinces him not to. He claims that he hears Natsumi's voice and that he won't let her treat him like a kid anymore. When they graduate, Fuyuhiko and the others decide to stay behind at the island with his friends, hopeful that everyone will wake up again.

Epilogue - The Day before the Future[]

After the defeat of Alter Ego Junko, Fuyuhiko and former Ultimate Despair members opt to stay on Jabberwock Island, possibly in hopes that they could do something to help their comatose friends.

After Nagito awoke from Neo World Program, Fuyuhiko, Kazuichi, and the rest of his classmates were already waiting for him in the harbor. The Ultimate Yakuza commented that he sleeps so long and wondered what kind of dream that he dreat off. Nagito then hugged Fuyuhiko and Kazuichi, telling them that at least it was not a bad dream.

Side - Hope: The Academy of Hope and Students of Despair[]

Thanks to Hajime who now merged with Izuru's incredible abilities, Fuyuhiko and the other survivors of the Killing School Trip's waiting time ended after Hajime cured the coma students.

Fuyuhiko and his classmates were taken off of Jabberwock Island and brought to the Future Foundation headquarters where they partake in the battle against the brainwashed Future Foundation soldiers. After Peko battled with the former Ultimate Discus Thrower, Fuyuhiko commented that bamboo sword is the most suitable weapon for Peko.

Fuyuhiko and the others later showed up with the rest of their friends to convince Ryota not to use the Hope brainwashing video. They also invited Ryota to live with them in peace, and took the blame for the Final Killing Game, so the Future Foundation could continue to operate.

Afterwards, Fuyuhiko and the others all departed on a Future Foundation ship to live a new life.



Natsumi Kuzuryu[]

Fuyuhiko was very protective towards his sister, and avenged his sister's death by murdering Sato and Mahiru. In his Free Time Events, he describes her as arrogant and annoying, but also deems her the Ultimate Little Sister.

In chapter 6, Fuyuhiko hears Natsumi's voice scolding him for acting like a child and wanting to vote "Graduation" just to see Peko. This causes him to develop confidence in himself and decide to stop Alter Ego Junko so Natsumi would stop treating him as a child.

Class 77-B:

Peko Pekoyama[]

Peko is Fuyuhiko's hitwoman that grew up with him. Peko acted as a tool for Fuyuhiko, doing as she was ordered to do. They cared for each other, and Peko even took the blame for Mahiru's murder so Fuyuhiko could escape from the island. Even though Fuyuhiko refused to escape from the island, he still interfered with her execution because he cared for her more than Monokuma's rules.

Although Peko sees herself as a tool, Fuyuhiko claims that he never wanted Peko to be his tool, rather his companion (with romantic implications as clarified in Peko's Island Mode ending). He wanted her to just be human and herself. He began to cry, not wanting her to leave him, and interfered her execution in an attempt to save her. However, Peko blinded his right eye. She then compulsively embraced him, causing him to get repeatedly stabbed by the Monokuma soldiers who were only trying to kill her.

After Chapter 2 it is revealed in many situations that he keeps her in mind. During Chapter 6 Alter Ego Junko tries to influence him to choose to stay in the game by hinting that Peko would still be alive if he chose to do so.

In Danganronpa 3, Peko stays close to Fuyuhiko all the time. She sits behind him in both classes, and only leaves his side to follow Mukuro. Despite how much Fuyuhiko cares about Peko, he is noticeably colder to Peko in Danganronpa 3, especially when she offers to go find out why Natsumi is in the Reserve Course. Fuyuhiko tells her that there is nothing between them now, and that she is no longer his hitwoman. This upsets Peko, but he goes on to say he only told her this so she wouldn't do anything crazy. Peko still helps Fuyuhiko by moving his stuff and Fuyuhiko also helps Peko, and tells her to "shut up" when she protests. Ibuki, however, interprets this as them acting like a mature couple. Fuyuhiko is upset when Mikan carries an unconscious Peko back to class, and he holds her in his arms until she is strong enough to stand on her own. He also tells Peko he can't let "them" (referring to Mukuro and Junko) go for beating her up badly.

As Ultimate Despairs, Fuyuhiko and Peko still remain close. He says he and Peko will lead the gang down the right path, implying he sees them as equals, and they stand back to back after killing everyone in the Japanese Diet Building. At some point though, they slipped back into their old roles as Fuyuhiko silently orders Peko to fight Kyosuke Munakata.

Mahiru Koizumi[]

Fuyuhiko and Mahiru never liked each other. Mahiru always scolds him about his bad attitude and is distressed by his constant claims that he can kill another person to escape. Fuyuhiko always pretends to ignored it and states that he doesn't care about it but also constantly threatens her life and refers to her as a bitch. While their rivalry cools off a bit during chapter 2's daily life it completely explodes after Twilight Syndrome Murder Case's reveal. Fuyuhiko learns of her and Hiyoko's plan to meet alone at the beach house and takes advantage of it to isolate and confront Mahiru about the current motive. They get into another argument and Fuyuhiko goes for the bat to kill Mahiru, but Peko kills Mahiru in the same fashion as Sato, his little sister's killer. He at first appears at best indifferent about her death and actively insults her, calling her "that bitch" as he explains how he caused her murder. However, he later appears to deeply regret her death, attempting harakiri for what he did to her and Peko in chapter 3 when Hiyoko confronts him over his role in their deaths. He even mentions planning to hold a funeral for both her and Peko in Free Time. He also mentions in chapter 4 that harming innocent civilians is very wrong for him, now. In chapter 5 when Kazuichi asks Chiaki to help him in his plan to capture Nagito, Fuyuhiko scolds him for his bad manners and says "Mahiru would have beaten you up for that", which also shows that he came to respect her motherly/protective tendencies.

Hiyoko Saionji[]

Hiyoko shows clear hostility towards Fuyuhiko, especially after Chapter 2, when Fuyuhiko causes the deaths of both Mahiru and Peko. Fuyuhiko apologizes to Hiyoko through harakiri, and Hiyoko agrees to cooperate with Fuyuhiko— at least until they find a way they get out of the island. This implies that Hiyoko has at least forgiven Fuyuhiko. He partially understands why she despises him and wants to make it up. When she is murdered he's horrified that she only died because she was in the wrong place at the wrong time, in contrast to Natsumi, who was killed because of her relentless bullying.

Kazuichi Soda[]

At first, Kazuichi and Fuyuhiko are at each other's throats quite often. Kazuichi makes comments towards Fuyuhiko such as "If you didn't have that big Yakuza family, you'd be nothing but a midget!" As time passes, their disagreement with each other seems to dissipate, and they become tolerant of one another, and eventually open up to one another as they survive the Killing School Trip. Fuyuhiko is easily angered by Kazuichi's perverted masochistic behavior, and says during the fourth trial that he "gets off on this".

Nagito Komaeda[]

During the Killing School Trip, Fuyuhiko dislikes Nagito due to his potentially dangerous behavior and strange way of speaking, and would often cooperate in plans to see Nagito restrained, such as when Nagito threatens to blow up Jabberwock Island.

However, Fuyuhiko is also very worried of Nagito when he almost dies from the Despair Disease. At one point, when he was still being a loner, Fuyuhiko even defends Nagito after he was tied up and wasn't present, accusing the other students of being messed up sheep to turn against their "buddies" immediately if they don't like them (seemingly because this behavior reminded Fuyuhiko of the way people treat him).

In Super Danganronpa 2.5, Nagito imagines Fuyuhiko as one of his closest friends while being inside his imaginary world, who understands that him being an occasional "creep" is just the way he is. The two seem to be on better terms with each other even after Nagito awakens from his coma into the real world, as Fuyuhiko and Kazuichi wait for him to greet him and overall appear friendlier with him. Though, Nagito then hugs the two, making them uncomfortable.

Chisa Yukizome[]

Chisa earned Fuyuhiko's respect when she threatened him into helping her look for the rest of his classmates. Fuyuhiko often refers to Chisa as "teach", but did call her "ma'am" shortly after she threatened him, as a way of showing her that she earned his respect. When Chisa announced that she had to leave for a bit, Fuyuhiko seemed upset. He also attended Chisa's welcome back party.

Chiaki Nanami[]

Fuyuhiko dismissively agreed to Chiaki being their class representative. It is implied he kept his distance, even while Chiaki was uniting the class, but then came around when he saw how hard Chiaki was working on Chisa's welcome back party, and took part in it with the rest of the class. Like the rest of his class, Fuyuhiko was horrified to see Chiaki being slowly tortured by Junko.

Ibuki Mioda[]

Ibuki treats Fuyuhiko as a friend and always wants to hang out with him. During chapter 2, Ibuki forces Fuyuhiko to go to the ancient ruins with the others. Mahiru however, was surprised that Fuyuhiko decided to come but he refers to Ibuki as a bitch who won't stop bugging him. Ibuki doesn't want Fuyuhiko to feel left out. After Fuyuhiko came back feeling well in Chapter 3, Ibuki decided to make a welcome back party for Fuyuhiko.

Mikan Tsumiki[]

Similar to Hiyoko's behavior to Mikan, Fuyuhiko loudly threatens to murder her or even sell her to a "whore house" when she talks about the wounds she notices on the victim's body, making Mikan scream and cry in fear, and having Mahiru and Sonia stand up for her.

In Chapter 3, after Mikan nurses him back to health he is much nicer towards her and offers to help her and Hajime with looking after the sick. Fuyuhiko initially doubts the idea that she's a killer but when she starts to scream in anger and beg to be forgiven, Fuyuhiko reacts with an uncomfortable look on his face and says she's gone emotionally unstable.

Reserve Course:

Hajime Hinata[]

The two seem to be on good terms with each other after the events of Chapter 2, when Fuyuhiko is intent on changing himself. They are also willing to stay and focused on their friends that catch despair disease in chapter 3. Though initially, Fuyuhiko did not attempt to form a friendship with Hajime, their relationship changes relatively in the end with Hajime asking him if he could visit the graves of Peko, Mahiru and Natsumi once they escaped and Fuyuhiko genuinely smiling at Hajime's kind nature.

Fuyuhiko considered Hajime as the "Ultimate Counselor" due to his nature that gives the students confidence to endure everything that they have. In the last Free Time Events, the two of them did a sakazuki, a Japanese ritual of exchanging cups to symbolize sworn brothers and pledge loyalty.


Not long after his sister's murder occurred, Fuyuhiko discovered the culprit, Sato, angering him. Fuyuhiko states that he would never ever forgive Sato for what she did to his deceased sister. He decided to get revenge for his sister, and murdered Sato in the same fashion as his deceased sister, by hitting her on the head with a metal bat.

Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair (English)


  • "I-It's probably remote controlled or something... Don't act like such a pussy over a child's toy."
  • "Name's Fuyuhiko Kuzuryu... Just so we're clear, I don't plan to act friendly and shit with you guys."

Chapter 1:

  • "I'm used to being mistrusted... Do what you will..."
  • "I'm not your friend, dumbass! When did I ever become friends with you bastards?"
  • "Hmph, let me be perfectly clear... ...I can do it, y'know."
  • "Don't talk to me like we're friends or something! I live in a completely different world than you bastards... Kill or be killed... That's the kind of world I live in. Heh, the current rules make more sense to me than that "Play nice and get along" crap."
  • "Don't treat me like a kid, bitch!"
  • "Hell no, not even if you paid me... Parties are stupid. They make me wanna puke..."
  • "Heh, I'm only buttin' in 'cause you fuckin' idiots are outta your element."
  • "Hey, that better be true! If you screwed up, I'll sell your fuckin' ass to a whorehouse!"

Chapter 2:

  • "Hmph...I'm not avoiding you bastards. ...I've just decided not to rely on anyone. That includes the Kuzuryu Clan... I can still survive without relying on them..."
  • "Don't get it twisted. I'm a yakuza by blood. It's not like I don't want to head the family business someday. I just want to prove I've earned it. Prove I can tough it on my own without relying on my clan."
  • "Anyway, I don't intend to spend any time with you guys. Nothing good can come of it. In this kind of situation, interacting with others will just shorten your lifespan... Those idiots, Byakuya and Teruteru, are proof of that. Plus...it'd be frustrating to be held back by affection when it's my time to kill!"
  • "Of course... I'll sacrifice the lives of everyone here if it guarantees my survival."
  • "Is that what you guys do? If you don't like your "buddy", you corner them... Tch, look at you sheep acting all righteous."
  • "You guys are fucking stupid... Don't get worked up over something so idiotic..."
  • "Heh...it's your loss if you end up dying. All we need to do is kill if we want to win."
  • "There's nowhere for me to run, anyway... So no matter the ending...I have to accept it, right? But still... I'm a yakuza! Accepting defeat is not an option!"
  • "I'm a yakuza...I won't run or hide..."
  • "Somethin' wrong with that!? It's just a fuckin' game, don't go mixing up some video game with reality!"
  • "If she was the type to die easily, I'd have fuckin' killed her myself a long time ago..."
  • "Tch... You sure do talk a lot of shit... Well, I'm used to it by now..."
  • "If you keep makin' shit up, I'LL FUCKIN' KILL YOU!!!!!!!!!"
  • "The only one childish enough to eat gummies is that midget over there."
  • "The only way to survive is to be suspicious... This is where we go to thoroughly doubt each other... So if you believe in each other so easily...then there's definitely somethin' wrong with you!"
  • "Dumbasses... You bastards don't know anything... If you're stupid enough to trust each other... ...the only thing waitin' for you is the bitter truth."
  • "Sh-Shut up! Just shut the fuck up and answer me! If you have an answer then fuckin' give it to me!"
  • "An eye for an eye"... That's the world I live in. For revenge...clubbing the person to death the same way my sister was killed just seemed to make sense... Even if it ruined my disguise, it was the only thing I could do to avenge my sister..."
  • "I'm sorry, Peko... I guess...I couldn't go through with it after all... Cause...if that's actually what I have to do to survive... I'd just feel ashamed of myself. It'd mean I can't live without depending on something... I'd just feel disgusted with myself... And...if I admit that... It means...you really are just a tool to me. How many times did I tell you..? I don't want a tool given to me by the Kuzuryu Clan..."
  • "How many times...do you have to keep... I don't need any tools... Jeez... Why don't you get it yet...? You stayed by my side...all this time... Why don't you get it...? I never needed...a sword...or a shield... I never needed...a tool... S-so... You didn't...need to become a tool... You just...you just needed to be yourself... I... I never wanted a tool! I just wanted you! Only you! Wh-Why!? Why couldn't you understand!? We've always been together, ever since we were kids! P-Please Peko! Don't go...! I need you! Don't leave me!"

Panic Talk Action Remarks:

  • "Got proof, you bastard!?"
  • "I'll sell your fucking organs!"
  • "That's obviously impossible!"
  • "You're pissing me off!"
  • "Shut up! Shut up! Shut up!"
  • "Bastard!"
  • "Don't fuck with me!"
  • "Ghghh..."
  • "If she used the bamboo sword as a stepstool, it would've been left behind!" (Final Argument)

Chapter 3:

  • "Heh... There's no way I'd die from something like this... There's no way...I can die..."
  • "I got something I wanna say! Whatever I say after this point... I apologize in advance if I make a mistake! My last name is Kuzuryu! My first name is pronounced, "Fu-yu-hi-ko"! I'm still an inexperienced member of my family's business! From this point forward, I hope we get along so we can get to know each other better!"
  • "Heh...it's only one eye. Besides, don't I look like I've gained some prestige or somethin'?"
  • "I-I didn't think...I'd be forgiven with such...a half-assed apology... But...if I don't do this...m-my feelings...won't feel resolved...! Tch...I feel so ashamed... I-In the end...I made trouble for everyone again..."
  • "I...never want to feel that feeling over again... If I have to feel that way again... I'll make sure I stop it, even if it costs me my life...! It's...just a little life Peko gave me... It's not precious anyway...!"
  • "Heh, even in such an abnormal situation...people still get hungry..."
  • "This life of mine is a spare anyway...! Whatever's happening over here, just leave it to us... We'll make sure to keep the disease from spreading..."
  • "W-were you guys sleeping together? Y-You dirty rotten bastard! You guys are fuckin' high school students!"
  • "I understand that you're worried...but there's nothing we can do here."
  • "Seeing is believing", as they say."
  • "...Oh well. Let's look forward to tomorrow."
  • "If it open, the only thing we can do is force our way through!"
  • "It doesn't matter if you can do it or not! We have to try!"
  • "Thinking like that won't do anything. We have to do this... If we don't do anything, we'll all be executed...!"
  • "All right, I'm definitely gonna find it...! I won't let the killer get away with this...!"
  • "What...? Do you still doubt me? Well, I'm used to it... It's true I've done things that I deserve to be doubted for... So don't worry...even if you doubt me, I don't plan on dismembering you and encasing you in concrete."
  • "You better not have kept quiet on purpose! This isn't a game, you know!"
  • "I'm not taking her side or anything...but being clumsy and unskilled in this area could lead to a mistake..."
  • "That's a little... Aren't you like the thief who suspects everyone else of being thieves?"
  • "I-Is this broad really okay?? She's emotionally unstable!..."
  • "Hey, Supreme Overlord of Who-Gives-A-Shit... That line doesn't suit you at all."

Chapter 4:

  • "Tch, like you said, we don't have time to just stand and stare..."
  • "What are you giving up for...dumbass! If we were brought inside this place, then there's definitely an exit out somewhere!"
  • "I'm sure you don't want to hear this, since I caused a similar incident... And I already know that a guy like me has no right to say this to you but... But...when I look at you, I just have to say something...! You don't need to act so stubborn, you know? 'Cause...I know what you're going through. The only reason you're standing here right now...is because someone sacrificed himself for you... You feel guilty about that. Isn't that right? So you don't want to be honest about it, huh... Well, I understand that feeling too... But like he said, it's better to just be alive... It might hurt to look at his painful appearance right now... But you're much better off because at least he's still alive! I mean...for me... ... S-Sorry... Right now...I feel very grateful to her... But I can't tell her that anymore. But you're different. So... Make sure you tell him how grateful you are..."
  • "Dammit! How much more of this do we have to take until he's satisfied!?"
  • "That piece of shit... How dare he pull such a dirty trick on civilians...!"
  • "Looks like...we don't even have the strength...to get upset..."
  • "Stop complaining... You're bringing me down..."
  • "This guy... He gets off on this!.."
  • "You bastard... Do you understand the situation you're in right now?!"
  • "Are you seriously saying he used his hamsters to press the button on the back of Nekomaru's Neck?"

Chapter 5:

  • "You know... Every time we meet up here, it makes me realize just how crazy this whole situation is..."
  • "Seriously...I'm starting to realize how valuable Teruteru was..."
  • "Well, he's always been a dangerous bastard, but he's crossed the line, you know?"
  • "Well, it's true that I don't really expect much... But who said we weren't gonna go? Obviously we're gonna go, dumbass!"
  • "Nagito's a pain in the ass, but is there anything we can do about Kazuichi's idiocy...? He doubts everyone so easily and never apologizes for it... Well, I guess I'm used to it..."
  • "What a rude way to ask for help... If Mahiru was here, she would've beaten you up."
  • "Monokuma's trap...Monomi's trap...and now Nagito's trap... If we keep worrying about shit like that, we won't get anything done, dumbass!"
  • "Like I said, if you keep worrying about shit like that, you won't get anything done. Just prepare for the worst...!"
  • "...Now's not the time to complain about stuff like that!"
  • "The only thing we can do is split up and cover as much as ground as we can!"
  • "You can't! You don't even have a driver's license!"
  • "You bastards...what are you saying...? You guys can just beat the shit out of him, because I'm the one who's gonna fucking kill him!"
  • "Don't fuck with me...! We're tired of this too, you know...! That's why I'll definitely make sure to finish this for good this time...!"
  • "Even if we can go home...it'l be the end for us if we screw up here...!"
  • "But this is Monokuma we're talking about, you know? There's no way this'll end smoothly with a countdown..."
  • "The killer...managed to kill someone like Nagito... There's no way this is going to go smoothly... I mean...I still can't believe one of us was able to do that..."
  • "I also want to believe that there's no killer...but suicide is unimaginable."
  • "He's a fucking bastard who killed himself for his delusions of grandeur! It's not that unthinkable...!"
  • "...Just to be safe, huh? Tch, guess I have no choice... If that's the case, I'll do my best to go along with it."
  • "I-I get what you're saying but... In the end, the reason he died is still the same as before, right? Even if we solve this mystery, the conclusion won't change at all..."
  • "Looks like...we gotta do what we can... It's not like I believe she's the traitor, there's just no way we can ignore this without confirming it..."
  • "You're right...there's nothing to worry about...since...everyone's here..."

Chapter 6:

  • "Now's not the time to zone out."
  • "If that's the case, let's all leave this island alive by any means...!"
  • "Like Sonia said...if there's no more killing, we don't have to worry about anyone betraying us anymore."
  • "I-I don't believe it... There's no way I can believe this...! Ultimate Despair... Junko Enoshima... Heh, it doesn't scare me at all... I mean... Junko Enoshima is already dead!"
  • "An imitation is just that: an imitation. If the students from Hope's Peak Academy stopped the real deal, there's no way we'll lose to some fake!"
  • "Don't fucking mess with me, you bastard! Did you have us all come here just to tell us bullshit!?"
  • "You better not say we're fictional characters!"
  • "If a lie is a believable lie... You're saying it might become the truth?"
  • "But still...is it really okay to sacrifice the others just to save ourselves...?"
  • "Why are you surprised...? It's a computer program...so anything's possible, right?"
  • "What game!? This game is already over!"
  • "I-I know anything goes here...but this...this is clearly not fucking okay...!"
  • "Who fucking cares about logic!? As long as everyone who died comes back to life, that's good enough!"
  • "Anything goes in this world! You've seen that happen so many times already, right!?"
  • "We're obviously going to get out of here...! If it'll bring our dead friends back, it's all we can do!"
  • "We...can finally end this, you know... If we get out of here...it'll all resolve itself peacefully... After all this, I can't let you get in the way!"
  • "H-How dare you look down on us...!"
  • "Don't fuck with me! What about our lives!?"
  • "I...I won't forgive you...! I will...never, EVER fucking forgive you...!"
  • "You might think I'm a fool but... I...want to see Peko one more time..."
  • "This burden...don't you dare make us shoulder it..."
  • "I want to see Peko one more time..."
  • "I'm well aware it might be an act of suicide. There's no telling how this'll play out... But... I...I heard her voice. In fact...I think it was the first time she ever yelled at me... Heh, I can't stand on my own two feet if she keeps treating me like a damn kid!"
  • "You're so bad at explaining things... Now that it's the end, you should at least try a little harder!"
  • "Well, whether it has meaning or not, it all depends on us now..."
  • "Heh, with your colorful personalities, there's no way I'd forget you guys that easily!"

Free Time Events:

  • "Hmph... I just have yakuza blood flowing in my veins. There's nothing strong about that."
  • "That's not true. I've seen plenty of people die up till now. And as long as I'm burdened with the Kuzuryu name, I'll always be dealing with a mountain of bodies... But...you guys aren't like me. It's a sick joke to see students who live honest lives bumping each other off like this..."
  • "There's no need to hide it. I'm used to being treated with caution by everyone. The world is a barbaric place. Especially my world... Everyone I know tries to settle things with violence. You guys have different values than I do... My old man likes to say, "Predators are always stronger than their prey." He's a hothead. Even if it's just a minor argument, he'll come at you with everything he's got. And when him and my mom fight, she seriously tries to kill him. "Being a yakuza means you can even kill the man you love to get your point across!" ...I've been hearing stuff like that since before I was old enough to understand what's going on around me."
  • "What? You don't need to apologize for that, you strange bastard. ...But still, I'm the rightful successor of the Kuzuryu Clan. I don't get overwhelmed very easily."
  • "But still...when she said that to me, I couldn't accept it. All I could do was yell at her and say, "You lead! I can live by myself!" Just...how small was I...?"
  • "Tch, don't act like hot shit, you virgin."
  • "Hey Hajime. I...think you're pretty awesome, y'know. When it comes to me and the others, at least we know where our confidence is coming from. But you... That part of you is missing... But despite that, you don't let it get to you. You've kept a cool head throughout all this so far."
  • "I blindly rushed into revenge...without thinking things through, with no concern for anything else... And in the end...I can't take back the consequences of that decision. But...after seeing you and the others keep it together... I feel like I'm starting to see what I need to be focusing on right now. We will definitely survive and escape from here... And I'll do anything to make that happen... If not, Peko, Mahiru... Everyone's death will go to waste."
  • "And Hajime... That part of you may be missing, but I think there's still something there... Because I was able to talk to you like this, and I was able to reflect on my past... And from there, I'm able to move forward. That's it... Maybe your talent is that you're the Ultimate Counselor."
  • "Listen up! Underage drinking is not allowed under any circumstances. Lemme tell you, the smell's enough to make me pass out. I advise you not to go within 300 feet of the stuff."
  • "Haha, obviously. Don't think about it too much. This isn't about making us real brothers or anything. This is a promise to return alive...together. I will never die... I mean, I've already died once... And Peko already saved that life, after all. But you look the type who dies easily, y'know? So I thought it'd be good if we made a promise like this. That's why I'm saying that I'll give you half of my life! I mean...you... ... You're...my very first friend. Even now...I'm still worried about whether I deserve to lead the clan... But I feel like that might change if I get out of here alive. So Hajime...you better not die, either. If you're unsure, then live and live on... Search persistently and keep looking for it. And then, you should...you should be able to find it."
  • "Some say shattering the cup is a bad omen, but I prefer it this way. I mean, if you break something, that means it can't be broken ever again."

Island Mode:

  • "I'll beat the shit out of any bastard who eats a hot dog at a movie theater!"
  • "I won't go easy on you if you make any cracks about a height requirement!"
  • "Every man dreams of being on a ship!"
  • "...I never thought I'd have so much fun. Thanks to you, I feel like this weird feeling inside of me has been blown away... Anyway, I had fun today. Thanks, Hajime..."
  • "Just so you know, I'm not willing to stoop so low as to get my hands on regular students. I was just thinking about how I've heard something like before."
  • "Now we can finally go back to the free world, huh. I was ready to kill everyone responsible for abducting us to this crazy place... But surprisingly, now that it's over, it wasn't that bad."
  • "I don't usually cross paths with a regular bastard like you."
  • "I know. I won't run anymore. Not from my own weakness, not from her...and not from being compared to my little sister. I'll become a man who deserves to run the family business, and with my own hands, I'll rule the world. I will never stumble... and I will definitely never die. Not until this dream of mine is fulfilled... Never!"
  • "Live or die, you and I are together! You better bolster your fighting spirit and follow me!"
  • "Heh, we exchanged cups. Your life is already mine. So... ...Don't go dying without me. Got it?"

Ultimate Talent Development Plan:

  • "I can't stand on my own if she keeps treating me like a kid!"
  • "A yakuza wouldn't tell such a shameful lie."
  • "Nekomaru. If you're gonna be using me...you better not show me any weak shit."
  • "A gentleman, huh? That's not really my thing. But you don't gotta worry about what I say. I think it's good that someone as strong as you...is trying to lead an honest life."

Danganronpa 3: The End of Hope's Peak High School/Hope Arc (English)


  • His first name (冬彦) can mean “winter boy” or “winter prince”, while his last name (九頭龍) means “nine-headed dragon”, which happens to be a deity in Japanese culture.
    • Despite his name meaning "winter boy", Fuyuhiko was born in the middle of summer.
  • His Free Time Events reveal that he hates milk due to being lactose-intolerant.
  • Despite the fact that many Yakuza members get tattoos, Fuyuhiko states that he does not have any.
  • Fuyuhiko was the first actual person to interfere in an execution, as well as the first person to be harmed during an execution that was not prepared for him. The other being to interfere with an execution was Genocide Jack in Punishment of the Fighter. Alter Ego does not count because it is an A.I., not a person.
  • Fuyuhiko is the only member of the Class 77-B to receive an external injury during the Neo World Program that matches the same injury he had sustained before entering the program.
  • During an Island Mode date, Fuyuhiko makes references to the Japanese yakuza films A Man from Abashiri Prison and The Yakuza Papers.
  • In Danganronpa IF, it is revealed that Yasuhiro Hagakure owes him and his clan 8 million dollars, because he extorted money from "the girl related to the Kuzuryu Clan".
    • Based on their interactions in the non-canon Danganronpa V3 bonus mode, Ultimate Talent Development Plan, Fuyuhiko is unaware that Yasuhiro scammed his sister and Yasuhiro is unaware Fuyuhiko's family is one of the families he owes money to.
  • Fuyuhiko's English voice actor, Derek Stephen Prince, also voices Kokichi Oma in Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony.[5]
