Daiya Owada (大和田 大亜) is a minor character featured only in flashbacks during the end of the second chapter of Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc. He was the founder and former leader of the Crazy Diamonds, Japan's largest motorcycle gang and the older brother of Mondo Owada.
Daiya has black hair and appears wearing a white coat, white pants, and white shoes. The back of the white coat has the symbol of the Crazy Diamonds, which is a diamond with the name of the gang, “Crazy Diamonds”, around it.
Daiya died on the night of his retirement party to save Mondo, who had been driving too recklessly in an attempt to win the race that Mondo himself challenged to, and he could have been ran over by a truck if not for the intervention of his big brother. Daiya's dying wish was for his little brother to lead the gang in his stead, and to not let it fall apart.
Daiya was Mondo's older brother, who founded and led the Crazy Diamonds biker gang up until the day of his death. Mondo states that when he was younger, Daiya would always explain about a promise between two men. He and his little brother were participating in a motorcycle race, and Mondo became reckless while he was attempting to prove himself to the gang and Daiya. He sped into the wrong side of the road, and was about to crash into an oncoming car.
Just before he was struck, however, Daiya pushed him out of the way, knocking him to the side and taking the blow from the car himself. He died in Mondo's arms, telling him to not let the gang be broken up. It was a “promise between two men”, which Mondo did his best to keep.
When this secret is finally revealed, Mondo explains how guilty he feels for not only killing his brother, but for not being able to uphold the last promise he made to Daiya.

|Jutarō Akafuku is the main antagonist of the short story Makoto Naegi Secret File.|
|Appearance and Personality:
Jutarō is dressed in a business suit. He also carries with him an army knife, which was in his pocket, and a bag, which contained sparkling diamonds. Jutarō holds luck in great disdain, to the point he even dislikes his own surname (which means "red blessing") and believes having a well thought out plan triumphs over any luck. Despite this, even he admits that luck holds a major factor in his occupation as a thief. He's crafty and intelligent, befitting his nature as a seasoned thief. He is also very cool-headed, always remaining calm even when Makoto's luck caused his plans to backfire. That said, he isn't above threatening Makoto for ruining his schemes as a form of payback, though even he admits internally his threats are just him bluffing. However, after being defeated by Makoto's misfortune, he now holds a new fearful perspective of luck.
Jutarō is a professional thief posing as a Salaryman . He was a man who was lucky in life. He found himself in dangerous situations in the past, but survived due to unexpected coincidences and happy accidents. He did not recognize partners and always worked alone. He believed that luck was his strength, but he did not want to put up with it. In fact, he strove to get rid of any uncertainties and factors depending on luck in his work as a thief.
After robbing a jewelry store, he got on a bus and attempted to get home free with his loot. Unfortunately, when Makoto Naegi got on the bus (in order to return a phone to an old man) he tripped and fell, and during the fall caused the bag to rip. The jewels ended up spilling onto the floor exposing Jutarō. Calmly, he pulled out an army knife and held Makoto hostage in order to force the bus driver from out of his seat so he couldn't call for help, as well as using the driver to get his jewels into a backpack stolen from the passengers.
Unfortunately, for him, the old man Makoto was trying to assist attacks him and grabs his arms. However, this turned out to be brief as due to a blunder by Makoto, the bus ended up shooting forward since the bus driver hadn't had time to put on the emergency brake. This allows Jutarō to break free and, yet again due to Makoto's bad luck, he is able to escape the bus. From there, the thief steals a nearby mail bike and tries to flee. However, due to a stray can of juice that's left in the road, accidentally, by Makoto early on, he ends up hitting it and toppling the bike over. The bike explodes and Jutarō is left unconscious. With his escape foiled by misfortune, he is arrested.

Kyoko Kirigiri's Mother
|Gender: Female / Status: Deceased / Voiced by: None|
|Kyoko Kirigiri's mother is a minor character mentioned in Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc and Danganronpa Kirigiri. She was Jin Kirigiri's wife, whose death had a major impact in the lives of her daughter and husband.
Her full name is unknown, but in Danganronpa Kirigiri her maiden name is revealed to be Uzuchi, which means a "rabbit hammer". In the Japanese culture, there is a well-known story about a rabbit hammering mochi in the moon, and thus her maiden name could be a reference to her husband's space-related execution. Her father's name was Tōhachirō Uzuchi and he was a master of seven Japanese martial arts, who taught his granddaughter self-defense.
After Jin was kicked out of the Kirigiri family due to not wanting to become a detective, he and his wife had Kyoko. Jin's father Fuhito Kirigiri then wanted him back after finding out about his granddaughter, wanting to make Kyoko his heir. He started to train Kyoko, but her mother suddenly turned ill and had to be hospitalized. When Kyoko was only seven years old, her mother was close to dying while Fuhito and Kyoko were doing detective work abroad, but to Fuhito, being a detective was more important than a dying family member and he refused to let Kyoko see her dying mother. As a result, Kyoko's last memories of her mother were "a white face floating above a hospital bed".
According to Jin, his wife was the only thing holding his relationship with his father together and it all imploded after she died, with him leaving the family in anger after his father showed no care for his dying wife.
|Robo Justice (ジャスティス ロボ) also known as Robo Justice the Galactic King is a robot suit featured in Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc.
Robo Justice is a tall blue, red, black, and white robotic-like being as his name implies. He has several multicolored joints and metal pieces that connect and make-up his metallic body. His shoulders are broad and in the English versions has the initials for "Robo Justice" and in the Japanese version it has kanji.
It's possible the "Justice Hammers" used in Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc 's Case 3 are what Robo Justice might use in his anime series. As such it can be speculated he delivers "justice" with them.
It is unknown where Robo Justice actually comes from in the Danganronpa universe, but similar to Hifumi Yamada's passion for an anime character named Princess Piggles, he has the same feelings towards Robo Justice. So it's very likely he is an anime character as well. This is further backed up by the fact Hifumi has merchandise modeled after Robo Justice, specifically a pair of underwear, and mentions him when bemoaning the lack of 2D at the beginning of Chapter 3.
Chapter 3 - A Next Generation Legend! Stand tall, Galactic Hero!:
Robo Justice is a cardboard suit created by Hifumi in order to frame Yasuhiro Hagakure for Kiyotaka Ishimaru's eventual murder. Celestia Ludenberg enlists Hifumi as her accomplice, by lying to him that Kiyotaka forced her to steal Alter Ego, and that he was planning to kill Hifumi. Later the two frame Hiro by putting him in the Robo Justice suit, and make it look like the robot was responsible for Hifumi's "kidnapping, both Hifumi's and Kiyotaka's "murders" and the "attack" on Celestia with the Justice Hammers.

|Santa Shikiba (色葉 田田田) is a minor character mentioned in Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc, and later appears as a major character in the sound novel Kirigiriso. He is the Ultimate Botanist (超高校級の「植物学者」chō kōkō kyū no “shokubutsu gakusha” lit. Super High School Level Botanist).
Santa wears a white coat over a plain white shirt, long light-brown pants and white boots. The collar of his coat is adorned with a flower-shaped pin. The lower half of his dark brown hair is trimmed while the upper half is shaped like two horns on both sides of his scalp - giving his hair the shape of the letter "U". He also has a widow's peak and a round nose.
Santa's official art shows him holding two blooming sakura branches.
During his teenage years, Santa was accepted into Hope's Peak Academy's 77th batch of students as the Ultimate Botanist. During his time attending the school, Santa had created a flower in the Old School Building that would eventually be known as the Monokuma Flower. In addition, Santa also owns a large mansion out in the forest, which is where he conducts his botanical experiments.
It's mentioned that prior to the Tragedy, he engineered the Monokuma Flower located in the garden on the fifth floor of the Academy by afterward was confirmed to have died as soon as the Tragedy goes underway. Though how he dies is never shown, it can be assumed he either was killed when the Reserve Course students broke in the main course building or during the escalating riots that rampaged Japan and the world soon after.
Sayaka Maizono's Idol Group
|Sayaka Maizono's Idol Group is a unnamed idol group in Japan that existed prior to The Tragedy. Consisting of five girls led by Sayaka Maizono, the group gained popularity and fame after having done exceptional performances across the country.|
Although how exactly the idol group was formed is unknown, Sayaka stated that she had done many bad things in order to become an idol, so it is implied that this goes for the whole group. The girls became extremely popular, not only in Japan, but worldwide. They had so many fans and admirers that their own lead singer, Sayaka, was invited to Hope's Peak Academy and granted the title of Ultimate Pop Sensation.
Despite their success, the girls ended up disbanding the idol group when Sayaka was trapped in Hope's Peak Academy. The remaining four members later appeared in a video, in which they appeared to be dead. It is unknown whether the group was brought together and was either knocked unconscious or forced to cooperate in recording, as the video was meant to push Sayaka to commit murder as part of Monokuma's motive. The desperation that Sayaka held after watching the motive video drove her so far to carry out her plan to murder Leon Kuwata, which ended up backfiring herself as she was the one who was killed instead by Leon during the Killing School Life. Currently, it is unknown if the other idol members are aware of Sayaka's demise.
Following these events, it is revealed that Ayaka Haneyama, one of the member of Sayaka's idol group, was forced to participate in the Demon Hunting as a target of the Warriors of Hope. However, both she and fellow member, Satomi Aoba, were revealed to have survived The Tragedy. The statuses of the remaining two members are currently unknown.

|Toranosuke Ishimaru is a minor character mentioned in Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc.|
|Toranosuke was very smart and he he climbed the ranks to be the Prime Minister of Japan due to being a genius.
Everything he did, he did without any actual effort, and he never knew failure. Because of this, he became more self-centered and arrogant over his talent, which lead to a corruption scandal. After only a few months in office, the public opinion of Toranosuke changed from high praise to widespread criticism and he was forced to step down. After that, Toranosuke's business collapsed and the Ishimaru family was left mistrusted and in huge debts. His family name shamed, Toranosuke allegedly spent the last years of his life in shamed silence.
Toranosuke died a few years before his grandson enrolled in Hope's Peak Academy and only his family members came to his funeral. Apparently, he had enrolled as the Ultimate Manager as well during his school years.
Toranosuke's grandson, Kiyotaka, considers his grandfather someone he both hates and respects. He is bitter at his grandfather, but also seems to feel sorry for him and feels that his grandfather's tragedy taught him an important lesson. One of Kiyotaka's main goals in life is to surpass his grandfather and reach greater accomplishments than anything he ever did, with pure effort.
Because of Toranosuke, Kiyotaka considers genius' fate a tragedy and he believes that effort is most important. He also hates the word "genius" and dislikes geniuses, considering them his enemies.
Toranosuke and his grandson both have the same favorite underwear brand. Considering that the underwear often symbolize close relationships in Danganronpa, this may imply that they were very close despite their conflicted relationship.
