|Organization / Status: Unknown|
|D.I.C.E. (DICE in the original Japanese) is a group of pranksters led by Kokichi Oma, mentioned and briefly shown in Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony. The group is made up of ten members, with seven boys and three girls.|
D.I.C.E. is a small group led by Kokichi, supposedly all of them high school aged or younger. For Kokichi, the group is like a family to him, and he cares about them deeply.
All of them wear clothing similar to Kokichi's: white suits resembling straitjackets and checkered scarfs, though Kokichi also seems to have a dark flowing cloak and a leather peaked hat to show his leadership. They also wear different, mostly white clown masks as a symbol of their group and to hide their identities.
Kokichi's Research Lab is heavily based on D.I.C.E., stated to resemble a stereotypical evil villain's lair yet having lots of comical items, and even having their logo displayed. The place includes various faux weaponry used for pranks, like handcuffs, empty suitcases, gas masks, and two-way radios. There are also lots of disguises of various colors, including matching shoes and suits, wigs and various glasses such as ordinary glasses, sunglasses, monocles, lorgnettes, and Groucho glasses, as well as fake mustaches. There are also clown masks belonging to the members of the group.
Even though Kokichi claimed that he leads a huge evil secret society, D.I.C.E. is actually just a small group who commit "laughable crimes" such as mild pranks, vandalism and petty theft. Their only motive appears to be to have fun and their most important rule is to not kill anybody.
Monokuma's Motive Video with Important Loved Ones for Kokichi shows the other members of D.I.C.E., imprisoned, beaten, and bloody, to try to encourage Kokichi to murder in the Killing School Semester. What happened to them afterwards is unknown.
However, due to the fictional reality of Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony, it is unknown if D.I.C.E. actually exists or is simply a fabricated memory.

Korekiyo Shinguji's Older Sister
|Gender: Female / Status: Deceased / Voiced by: Kenichi Suzumura / Todd Haberkorn|
|Korekiyo Shinguji's older sister was a sickly girl who was supposedly in a sexual and romantic relationship with her little brother. After she died, she became Korekiyo's tulpa after his near-death experience, and her brother became a serial killer who targeted girls who met his requirements as his sister's "friends," aiming to send her one hundred. The tulpa appeared rather passive-aggressive and gave Korekiyo orders he obeyed without questions.
Korekiyo's older sister was also the one who inspired her little brother to pursue his career as an anthropologist, as she advised him to do a lot of research. She was always so sickly, and she was in and out the hospital since she were young. Due to that, she never had the chance to make friends until the day she died, explaining Korekiyo's motive to give her friends.
His sister's spirit appeared during his execution and suddenly turned against him and worked together with Monokuma to banish his spirit with salt. According to Kazutaka Kodaka, it's ambiguous whether she is the real deal or controlled by Monokuma. Assuming she was real, the exorcism was her way of expressing her anger for her brother who killed people for her sake and claimed things about her feelings. Regardless of whether she is real or not, summoning the person most dear to Korekiyo is Monokuma's pestering..
Since this story was fabricated by Team Danganronpa, it is unknown if Korekiyo actually has a sister.

He is the leading expert in robotics engineering and the creator of K1-B0, who raised the robot as his own child. According to K1-B0, he is not an Ultimate, but he is very talented nevertheless.
Professor Idabashi created K1-B0, a robot with a maturing AI, to be the culmination of all of his work and research. He was meant to be a robot more human than any other robot before. Initially, K1-B0 had no knowledge nor awareness and was only capable of displaying a very narrow spectrum of human emotions. The plan was to raise and develop him like a parent would their own child. However, a few years passed, and there was no improvement in his mental state.
One day, an unpredictable accident occurred during a routine experiment. K1-B0's programming went rogue and he ended up seriously injuring the professor, but fortunately he survived. After hurting the professor, K1-B0 was suddenly overcome by immense sadness, especially considering that the First Law of Robotics said that a robot must not harm a human being. Even though K1-B0 wasn't punished for breaking that rule, he nevertheless felt sadness and blamed himself, feeling immense guilt. For the first time, he understood how it felt to feel human emotions, and at that moment his AI suddenly reset as if committing suicide. He became like a newborn infant once again, with all of his memories deleted. In his "next life", K1-B0 called it the day of his own "death" and the day of his true "birth". After learning the story from the professor, he assumed that perhaps he had wanted to be "reborn" as the professor's son once again.
K1-B0's strength was considerably weakened after the incident, described as being similar in strength to an average senior citizen. This time, his AI matured accordingly and he learned and developed as his creator raised him like his own child, with K1-B0 considering the professor his father. Eventually, the professor even sent him to attend Īdabashi Industries High School (光星国際アカデミー) and he was recognized as being an Ultimate even as a robot.
It was later revealed that most memories of the students were lies created by Team Danganronpa, who are K1-B0's true creators, meaning the professor either doesn't exist or works for Team Danganronpa.
K1-B0 is Idabashi's creation, who he treats like his own child. In turn, K1-B0 considers the professor his father. K1-B0 respects the professor's skills, despite the fact that they aren't an Ultimate.
After becoming trapped in the killing game, K1-B0 mentions that the professor would desperately search for him if he went missing, proving how close they are.
In his Free Time Events, K1-B0 reveals that he used to have a "past life" when he didn't develop correctly, suddenly went rogue, and seriously injured the professor. He felt massive guilt and sadness as a result, his AI suddenly resetting as if committing suicide. K1-B0 has no memories of this and believes he must have wanted to be reborn as the professor's child. In his Harmonious Heart event, it's shown that K1-B0 still feels guilty and thinks the professor might resent him because of the incident.
In the bonus mode Love Across the Universe, if Shuichi offers to take his clothes off, K1-B0 is shocked by such shamefulness and mentions that even the professor hasn't seen him "naked".

|Makoto appears as a typical teenage boy with a pale complexion. He has brown hair cut in a bobbed cut and dull grey eyes. He normally has a very depressed expression on his face unless he is watching or talking about Danganronpa.|
|Much like Makoto Naegi, one of the main protagonists from the Hope's Peak Series, Makoto describes himself as a normal talentless junior high school boy who got into an "elite school". Unlike Makoto Naegi however, who praised his getting into Hope's Peak Academy because of his good luck, Makoto seems to not be overly fond of being in an elite school and said that it was nothing more than bad luck.
It is hinted that he may suffer from learning difficulties or just has no interest in school work, as he himself claims that he cannot keep up with his classmate's conversations or his teachers' lectures; as such, he thinks of himself as "empty space in the classroom." He also describes his home life as being tedious, with his parents always on his case.
Despite all these negatives, however, he claims that he is okay, as he has something to look forward to, something that gives him courage, something that he can be totally obsessed with, something that gives him the "strength to keep going". This something later turns out to be the Danganronpa reality TV show, which he admires that much, as he likes to watch it and talk a lot about it, perhaps even having an interest in participating in a Killing Game one day himself.

|Monokuma's assistant is a mute Monokuma unit with patchy fur. He supposedly took Monokuma's place while he was on vacation from the Ultimate Academy, after he was usurped as headmaster by Monodam during Chapter 3. He was seen most commonly during the daytime and outside of the Academy.

|Nanokumas (モノチッチ Monochichi) are extremely tiny Monokuma-like robots with a resemblance to insects and cameramen, which take care of the surveillance in Ultimate Academy for Gifted Juveniles and thus replace the usual surveillance cameras.|
|Nanokumas resemble the original Monokuma, being robotic bears with the white left side, as well as a red vertical stripe for a right eye. Nanokumas also have yellow pacifiers, and their right side is patterned, like their siblings. Their right side is grey and has slate-blue pixel camouflage. A unique trait of theirs is that they also have insect-like wings and cameramen's equipment, such as a camera and a pair of headphones.
Nanokumas lack individual personalities and instead act as a hive mind. They prefer to move in swarms. Apparently, they are capable of speaking and answering questions when under a threat, though you need special equipment to hear their faint voices.
