Sonia Nevermind (ソニア・ネヴァーマインド), 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. Her title is the Ultimate Princess (超高校級の「王女」 lit. Super High School Level Princess).

She, 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.


Sonia Nevermind Fullbody Sprite (1)

Sonia is a tall, young woman with fair skin and pale sea blue eyes. She has knee-length light blonde hair, part of it styled in a braided crown, the rest left to flow slightly towards the left. Her hair is accessorized with a green-black ribbon flecked with diamonds. She wears a dark teal dress with a white collar, puffed sleeves, and belt. She also sports a large red ribbon with a blue jewel trimmed with silver on the chest. As well as this, she wears a pale bracelet on her left wrist, black over-knee socks trimmed with gray lines, and red toe cap heeled Mary Janes.

In one of her official artworks, Sonia's hair is simply down without her braid crown. She wears an off-the-shoulder pale golden ruffled ball gown, a red brooch trimmed with gold on her chest, a bejeweled necklace, and a white diamond tiara.

During her time at Hope's Peak Academy, she wore the standard issued school uniform with a brown vest over her white dress shirt. She also wore a brown headband stylized with four-leaf clover on the right side of her hair, black thigh highs, and brown loafers. Her hair was a more golden shade of blonde, also lacked the braid crown and was considerably longer, flowing to ankle length.

As a member of Ultimate Despair, Sonia wore a white sleeveless puffy ballgown with layers of ruffles. The gown is decorated with large black cloth roses that wrap around the skirt, plus a single rose at her right shoulder. She wears long white gloves, a red-jeweled necklace, and a tall, spiked crown. Part of her hair is styled in a tall beehive, the rest left to flow down.


Sonia is a cheerful and polite girl with a great interest in Japanese culture. Being a princess, she takes a great interest in many rather ordinary things as well, such as cleaning and even the Japanese restrooms, due to not being familiar with them. She firmly wishes to be treated like a normal Japanese high school girl and her big goal is to have friends of her own age and status. Due to being a foreigner, she occasionally messes up figures of speech and has a tendency to use very outdated slang in an attempt to socialize with her fellow students. Furthermore, Sonia is fascinated with serial killers and the occult and has actually stated that she likes Friday the 13th, which makes some other students a bit creeped out. She was very interested in visiting Hell when Gundham Tanaka talked about it, and in general, she is shown to be very in tune with his dark and bizarre ramblings, seemingly being the only one who understands his way of speaking.

Sonia is very kind and thoughtful, and she cares deeply for her friends, being very protective to those she holds a deep connection to. She can also be rather physically affectionate towards her friends, as she glomps Chiaki Nanami during one scene in Danganronpa 3. Her very polite personality is well-demonstrated by the way she is shown to be kind and polite even towards Monomi and Nagito Komaeda, despite not really liking neither of them. However, she does possess a more hostile side towards Kazuichi Soda, due to his somewhat stalker-like behavior. While she is very friendly, Sonia's commands are rather assertive and captivate the undivided attention of everyone surrounding her. It is stated that whenever she commands people, they feel an instinctive need to bow and listen to her. However, as shown in Chapter 5, Sonia can also suddenly curse a lot and shout out loud whenever she is very upset or in deep distress.

Because of her upbringing, Sonia can be rather naïve and her general behavior can make her appear a bit ditzy at times, but she is actually smart and capable of complex political analysis, and reveals in her Free Time Events that she has faced many dangerous and stressful situations due to her status as a princess, and she is even skilled and fearless in combat. As a representative and authority figure of her country, she feels she has a great responsibility and always tries to stay calm and not show any weakness, even during the killing game. However, during her Free Time Events, she allows her ordinary self to be shown as she admits to Hajime that she is desperate to go home to her people while breaking down in tears. She firmly states that she does not fear death, but she also won't let herself be killed nor kill any of her friends. She has a rather pragmatic side, that is useful during trials. Although she still tries to help as much as she could in trials, her despising the fact that she has to "doubt" her friends usually becomes a priority, implying that she is very loyal to those she genuinely cares for. In general, she is shown to be deeply loyal to her country and always prioritizes her people and country over herself, even if it makes her unhappy inside.

Talent & Abilities[]

Ultimate Princess[]

Danganronpa 2 Sonia Nevermind English Game Introduction

From the day she was born Sonia was destined to become the princess of the Kingdom of Novoselic. In order to become a true dignified princess, she must learn much knowledge such as leadership, foreign languages, economics, international law, and diagnostic medicine. Among the students of Class 77-B, Sonia lives a totally different life from her classmates. She claims that she already accepted her destiny as a princess whose life belongs to her country and its people and if she was to die, it would be for no other reason than the sake of her country and people. She hopes that her death would be a meaningful death to her country and people.

Living in a kingdom that has a very unique law, culture, and tradition, Sonia has grown interested in studying different countries and languages. It was revealed before she was scouted by the Hope's Peak Academy Sonia can speak, read, and write thirty different languages.

Sonia follows every tradition in Novoselic. However, she denied a tradition to consume an animal species named Skong. The people of Novoselic consume Skong so they could be recognized as an adult. Sonia thinks that it is nice to retain purebred Skongs as a symbol of high status, but consuming them to their highest bidder could endanger the species. She planned to harness the energy that Skong and Makango released using the old tradition so she and her generation don't need to completely end the tradition. Sonia is eager to accomplish her plan and guides her people on the right path. According to Hajime, Sonia is a delightful and wonderful princess to her people.

Sonia has grown interested in Freemasonry, which is forbidden for a princess like her. However, her interest is only academic and she is quite sad that no one could relate to her feelings. She believes that expanding her knowledge is the duty of every member of the royal family, thus making her interested in the occult, cults, and popular dramas.

Sonia states that in her own country, she is a princess before a person; therefore she always prioritized her people and country over herself. Sometimes, she disliked that fact, and she looked forward to enrolling in Hope's Peak Academy as a regular student.

Military skills[]

Sonia is very knowledgeable about warfare, knowing how to act in such a situation and how to use a large variety of weaponry including firearms and combat vehicles. In Danganronpa 2.5, she is seen wearing an assault vest and firing a rocket launcher. In her country, all children receive a course in modern warfare in elementary school.

Her military knowledge is also found in Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair when she and the remaining Class 77-B search the Jabberwock military base for information. Sonia understands the different types of military technology and stated that it would be useful for combating the Future Foundation. Her willingness to go into combat shows her experienced training in this field.


Prior to the Tragedy[]

Before traveling to Japan, Sonia lived a comfortable yet very sheltered life in the kingdom of Novoselic. Sonia states that she didn't have a single friend equal in status to her, making her very lonely. She eventually traveled to Japan to study the culture after developing an interest. She attended In Utero School before enrolling in Hope's Peak Academy.

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

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

Sonia was one of the few students of Class 77-B who attended the class along with Fuyuhiko Kuzuryu, Mahiru Koizumi, Hiyoko Saionji, and Mikan Tsumiki. The fact that most of the students are gone make her homeroom teacher, Chisa Yukizome furious. Chisa's determination to search for her students inspired Sonia, saying that to search her lost "youth" is what she wanted to do in the Academy.

The group began their search by visiting the men's bathroom. Sonia was impressed by the outer appearance of "Japanese" men's room, hinting that there are many differences with her Kingdom's version. After retrieving Nekomaru Nidai from the bathroom, Chisa used Sonia to lure Teruteru Hanamura with her charm. Later, Sonia was also used by Chisa to approach Kazuichi Soda who has a crush on her.

Later, Sonia and her classmates returned to their class. Chisa asked them to clean their classroom as she went to retrieve two remaining students. After returning to the classroom, Chisa was happy to see that Sonia and the others had waited and that the classroom was clean. When the students once again bring up that 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[]

Sonia was taking care of the fainted teacher who attended their class with Mikan on the side of the classroom during Akane Owari and Nekomaru's deadly training session.

Later on, Sonia and the others repaired their classroom together. Afterward, Sonia and her classmates played the games that Chiaki brought. She, Mikan, Mahiru, and Chiaki played the Bomber Guy game.

During break time, Sonia ate a portion of nikujaga which was cooked by Teruteru and Hiyoko. She was under the effect of the aphrodisiacs that were secretly added by Hiyoko in the food. When Kazuichi was about to molest her, Fuyuhiko tried to stop him.

After having recovered, Sonia visited her friends in the nurse's office and stated her admiration to Chiaki after she protected Hiyoko from Teruteru's dangerous behavior a while ago.

In the next day, Sonia was happy to hear that Chisa wanted to elect Chiaki as their class representative.

Episode 03 - A Farewell to All Futures[]

At the beginning of the episode, Sonia and her classmates walked past Hajime Hinata heading toward the Main Course building. Later, Sonia and her classmates visited the school's park and played with a rabbit alongside Mikan.

Several days later, Sonia appeared worried at Mahiru who was crying on Hiyoko's chest after she received news about the death of her friend from the Reserve Course, Sato.

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

Unlike her usual self, Sonia remained silent as she listened to Chisa's announcement about the upcoming practical exam. The deaths of Natsumi Kuzuryu and Sato affected her class's morale greatly.

At the end of the episode, Sonia broke into tears as she couldn't stand bidding farewell to her beloved teacher, Chisa, as she had to transfer to the Reserve Course as a means of taking responsibility of Nagito's involvement in the bombing incident in the gym. Chisa comforted Sonia, saying that she would return to them someday.

Episode 05 - The Beginning of the End[]

Sonia and her classmates held a welcome back party for Chisa at Chiaki's request half a year after her teacher's time in the Reserve Course ended. She complimented Chiaki for her hard work in organizing the party. Later, Sonia and Gundham Tanaka were in sync in welcoming Chisa back using Gundham's unique way of speaking. It was revealed that during Chisa's transfer, Sonia started to pick up on Gundham's habits.

Episode 06 - A Despairfully Fateful Encounter[]

Sonia asked where Chisa may be, seemingly missing her absence and Peko Pekoyama replies that she is at the faculty office for the day, even though at that time she was meeting with Juzo Sakakura. The next day, Sonia appeared pleased that Chisa has returned to teaching.

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

When Gundham brought a tamed bear into the classroom, Sonia wanted to get closer to it, stating that 'it is adorable' while blushing. Gundham assured her that 'Grizner' will only attack a demon many ranks higher, to Sonia's shock, clasping her hands with worry of being a low-ranked demon.

Episode 08 - The Worst Reunion by Chance[]

Sonia expressed her disappointment along with the rest of the class when Nagito returns rather than Mikan. In the end, they all decide to go look for her after Nagito told them he noticed Mikan in the West District. The class split off into groups, with Sonia searching along with Gundham and Kazuichi.

Episode 09 - Chisa Yukizome Doesn't Smile[]

Sonia and the rest of the class reconvened 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, Sonia, despite being very worried by this, agrees to help. Nagito convincingly makes clear that it will be dangerous and there is a possibility of them dying, to which Sonia contemplates these concerns but Chiaki convinces her otherwise.

The Ultimate Imposter reveals his true identity, much to Sonia's shock along with the rest of the class although they come to accept it quickly. Nagito wishes to go with them although doesn't have the strength to walk, Sonia commanding Kazuichi to give him a piggyback ride to which he agrees swiftly.

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

On the way down the stairway to Junko's lair, everyone becomes worried for Gundham and Nekomaru's safety although Kazuichi convinces Sonia that Gundham knows how to get things done before regretting helping his romantic rivals credibility with Sonia.

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

Sonia and the class continue down the corridor after making their descent of the stairway, Mikan eventually catching up with them. After a door is flung open unexpectedly, with multiple eyes appearing in the darkness, Kazuichi screams loudly, catching the attention and dismay of Sonia who puts her hands to her mouth. Only to find it was Nekomaru and Gundham, Sonia clasps her hands, pleased that they are both okay. Ibuki proclaims all that is left is to save Chisa, to which Sonia and the rest of the class agree.

Mikan, now leading the group, approaches a large red door at the end of the corridor, pressing a button which opens the door, Sonia and the rest of the class follow her inside. Once inside, Junko reveals multiple monitors showing Chiaki Nanami's Punishment, Sonia horrified by what she is seeing, wants to find a way to save Chiaki but is powerless, expressively stating 'she can't move' as the brainwashing techniques of the video has forced them to continue watching.

Once Chiaki reaches the "goal" in her execution, she opens the door. She sees Sonia, 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. As the broadcast ends, Sonia and the class fall silent, with a patterned swirl in their eyes, they have lost all their hope and are now Ultimate Despair.

Episode 11 - Goodbye Hope's Peak Academy[]

Sonia and the rest of the Class 77-B have returned to the classroom, receiving their final lesson before graduation. Chisa stated she has been honored to be their teacher, and started reading a letter she prepared, Sonia and the rest of the class clap with gratitude.

After the speech, red lights turned on, and Chisa started to cry. Sonia stated she is happy to have been a part of the class, before starting to cry also. The patterned swirls return in their eyes as they all made a declaration of what they will do upon graduation. Sonia swore she will make her country a peaceful one with no war. After bidding her class a final farewell, Chisa activates a bomb that fakes the death of Class 77-B. Sonia and her class stand outside the school grounds as they watch Hope's Peak's destruction.

Chisa's narration later reveals Sonia commanding the destruction of other nations from a monitoring room, helping lead the world into despair.

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

Episode 01 - Third Time's the Charm[]

As a member of Ultimate Despair, Sonia was shown commanding an army (presumably the military of Novoselic) with Monokuma helmets on, with Mahiru taking photographs to spread despair across the world. At some point, Sonia was imprisoned by the Future Foundation, with Makoto Naegi putting her into the Neo World Program with the other captured Remnants of Despair.

Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair[]

During the events of the game, Sonia states that she won't let herself be killed nor kill any of her friends. Her words come true, and she is one of the survivors at the end of the game.

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

Sonia was one of the students who did not panic when they were transported to the island. She, along with everyone else, went exploring after Usami dismissed them.

Sonia is first seen in the Hotel Restaurant being teased by Teruteru. Later, she and the groups take Usami's present and happily play at the beach on the first island, though not everyone seems happy about it. Later on, Monokuma came and changed their normal Field Trip, into the Killing School Trip.

Chapter 1 - Destination Despair[]

In the beginning, Sonia appears at the restaurant, and questions who made the food, if it wasn't Teruteru. When she's questioned by Hajime, she'll comment on how Monokuma's body shape doesn't seem like it would be suitable for fine movements, and she questions if the food will be okay because of it.

In the first chapter, Sonia was eager to clean the Old Lodge, but Nagito Komaeda was elected to clean it instead of her, as a result of his luck which made her sad because she had never went "cleaning" before.

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

In the second chapter, Sonia held a girls-only party at the beach, at which most of the girls on the island attended. Much to Kazuichi's surprise and disappointment, she wears a full-body wetsuit to the event, but it's interrupted by Mahiru, one of the girls who rejected her invitation, being found dead in the beach house.

Sonia recognizes the mask that were left by the culprit near Mahiru's corpse. It's the mask of a serial killer known as Sparkling Justice. This evidence made her believe that the serial killer was responsible for Mahiru's death, not one of the trapped students.

However, near the end of the trial, Sonia reveals that Sparkling Justice was not originally Japanese, and this is proof that Peko could not possibly be the vigilante. This comes after the vote, but since Peko is ultimately considered the culprit, the rest of the class is able to pass the trial.

Chapter 3 - Trapped by the Ocean Scent[]

In the third chapter, Sonia was one of the students who wasn't affected by the Despair Disease, so she, along with the other non-affected students, moved to the Motel on the third island. Sonia met with Hiyoko, who, after bathing for the first time in days, is unable to tie her own obi properly, since Mahiru, who helped her before, was murdered.

Sonia suggests Hiyoko to use the full-body mirror in the live house, which results in Hiyoko walking in on Mikan while she's in the process of murdering Ibuki Mioda, causing Mikan to kill Hiyoko. Sonia is briefly suspected due to not having an alibi at the time of the crime. When Nekomaru returned as a robot on the sandy beach, Sonia screams in shock at the sight of Nekomaru's robotic body.

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

In the fourth chapter, Sonia became excited to ride the Roller Coaster because there are no amusement parks in her kingdom.

During a conversation, while the entire remaining cast were debating whether or not to ride the roller coaster, Gundham tells a quick story of how he went to a demon-filled amusement park in Hell. Sonia asks to accompany him the next time he goes, in which he replies that he must offer the blood of a virgin as the entrance fee and that he'd use Sonia's. She promptly says that her blood would not be suitable to meet those demands, alluding to her no longer being a virgin. Kazuichi was very displeased about that comment.

Sonia also developed a friendship with Gundham, hanging around the Surprise House with him. However, she refused to believe that Gundham was the culprit behind the murder of Nekomaru.

Gundham is ultimately convicted, and Sonia pleads with Monokuma to spare him, but Gundham scolded her for that, calling her attempt to intercede with someone prepared to meet his fate as “dishonorable” and unbecoming of someone like her. After Gundham's executed, Sonia is the one who tells the others that if they give up on life, Gundham might return from the pits of hell and be angry with them.

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

In the fifth chapter, Sonia is extremely upset by Nagito making light of the Ultimate Imposter and Gundham's deaths. She contributed to the investigation by discovering that the bomb in the Doll factory was a fake, and when she proved that the bomb was a fake one, she tested to see if it would explode in front of the abandoned Hope's Peak Academy building.

During the trial, as Hajime realizes and when the traitor confesses, they can deduce that Chiaki Nanami is the traitor from the Future Foundation in the group, Sonia tries to argue against him, by claiming that if Hajime's proof is that Chiaki knew Nagito's bombs were fake, the same could apply to her, but Hajime points out that Monomi saw Sonia testing the bombs, and reported to Chiaki. After the verdict, Sonia, in tears, tells Chiaki that she does not believe that Chiaki would ever betray the group, and still considers her a friend.

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

After witnessing her friends fall one by one because of this sadistic game, Sonia vows to stay alive. Along with others, Sonia is in disbelief that Hajime is actually Junko Enoshima's pawn for her sadistic project, which was previously thwarted by Makoto Naegi and the Future Foundation. When she believes that the Forced Shutdown will cause her to lose her memories, Sonia begins to despair, believing that it will render everyone's efforts and the deaths of their friends meaningless.

However, when Hajime convinced everyone to use Forced Shutdown, Sonia told Alter Ego Junko (despite Alter Ego Junko saying that they'll forget their friends and their deaths) that Hajime's words made her realize that the future they make will be the future their friends made for them; so for their deceased friends' sakes and efforts not going in vain, she won't back down and chooses to activate the Forced Shutdown.

Epilogue - The Day Before the Future[]

After the defeat of Alter Ego Junko and the virtual version of Chiaki was finally gone, Sonia is one of the few that survives. Sonia and former Ultimate Despair members opted to stay on the Jabberwock Island, possibly in hopes that they could do something to help their comatose friends.

Danganronpa 2.5: Nagito Komaeda and the World Vanquisher[]

Illusion World[]

Main article: Sonia Nevermind (Illusion)


After Nagito awoke from Neo World Program, he learned that all of his friends, including Sonia, were alive and awake. They all then boarded the boat that would take them to the Future Foundation Headquarters.

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

Sonia returned in Side: Hope alongside the rest of the Class 77-B, who had been resurrected by Izuru Kamukura although he was now combined with the personality and memories of Hajime after leaving the Neo World Program.

They arrived at the island where the Future Foundation Headquarters were situated, having left from Jabberwock Island and proceeded by rescuing Byakuya Togami and Yasuhiro Hagakure from being trapped under rubble, they then began their fight against Ryota's brainwashed rescue squad troops, including the Ultimate Elite Task Force.

Nekomaru is seen facing off against a robot unit from the Super High School Level Elite Task Force of Future Foundation but became surrounded, fortunately Kazuichi sent an army of remote control Mini-Mecha Nidai robots to defeat the second monobeast. Seeking Sonia's praise and admiration as she watched from above, he felt his heroics had gone unnoticed but Sonia expressed it was quite impressive, causing him to blush gleefully as she smiled in return.

Later on, Sonia helped convince Ryota to abandon his plan to brainwash the world. When Hajime began persuading him to join them in atonement, Sonia stated they weren't atoning for sake of forgiveness and that she would be happy to have him join them, Kazuichi promptly agreeing the same.

Shortly afterward, Sonia and the other Former Remnants of Despair shoulder the blame for the Final Killing Game in a broadcast to the Future Foundation, relieving the organization of any wrongdoing.

With the battle won, Sonia and the Class 77-B return to Jabberwock Island. She is last seen speaking with Gundham as the boat takes them home.


Class 77-B:

Gundham Tanaka[]

Though they spoke to one another before, Sonia and Gundham's friendship truly blooms during Chapter 4 after they finished the Roller Coaster ride and Sonia asked to accompany Gundham on a trip to an amusement park in hell. They became very close due to their complimenting interests (such as Sonia's interest in the occult with his odd behavior, or her liking of his "cute hamsters"). Sonia showed interest in Gundham's hamsters multiple times, which unintentionally flustered Gundham and made him blush.

She constantly sides with Gundham. In the main story, Sonia is also the only one who has made Gundham blush. It's implied that they have a romantic interest in each other, much to Kazuichi's annoyance.

In the original Japanese release, Sonia is also the only one that Gundham does not refer to as "貴様" (kisama, a way of saying 'you' that suggests contempt, or alternatively an archaic polite form of 'you') or by their last name, instead calling her "she-cat" at one point or "the Dark Queen", which is mentioned to be his fantasized version of Sonia. He claims that the Dark Queen has great power, which has not been awakened yet.

When Gundham was deemed the culprit of Chapter 4, Sonia refused to believe it, urging him to object against Hajime's accusations. Gundham did defend himself but was unusually silent, and Sonia begged him to say something many times. She also pleaded with Monokuma to save Gundham from his execution, but finally let Gundham go after she was convinced by Gundham himself. He told her actions were "unbecoming of someone of your status".

Gundham's Four Dark Devas of Destruction are entrusted into Sonia's care after his death. After Gundham's execution, Sonia has a new resolve to make it out alive without any more killings because of his last words about not giving up.

During their time at Hope's Peak Academy, Sonia latched onto Gundham's eccentric personality when Chisa left and the two bonded. Sonia enjoys the occult and she appears to like the Four Dark Devas, calling them cute. She is shocked when Gundham refers to her as a low ranking demon.

After Gundham returns from his coma and the former Remnants of Despair finish assisting the Future Foundation, Sonia is seen eagerly talking to Gundham on the ship, admiring his hamsters.

In the non-canon Ultimate Talent Development Plan in Danganronpa V3, Gundham thinks that Sonia is performing a demon ritual but she tells him that is simply cleaning. Sonia tells Gundham that she couldn't hang out with her friends in her old country like this.

Chiaki Nanami[]

Real-life version[]

Sonia admires Chiaki greatly, both as her classmate and the class representative. Sonia was very close to her as shown in the despair arc of Danganronpa 3. She always hugged and complimented her when Chiaki was talking. Sonia was impressed with Chiaki's effort to unite her classmates using her games that she brought and holding Chisa's welcome back party. Sonia, like the rest of her class, cried when they watched Chiaki slowly being tortured to death.

AI version[]

Chiaki was one of Sonia's closest friends during the Killing School Trip. In Chapter 2, Sonia invited Chiaki to her beach party, which she attended, although it was cut short due to Mahiru's murder. In Chapter 5, Sonia furiously defends Chiaki when she is accused of being the traitor, even going as far as to try to push suspicion onto herself. When Chiaki is voted as the culprit, Sonia tearfully tells her that she doesn't think Chiaki could ever betray them, and says that no matter what, they'll always be friends, which Chiaki agrees to.

Kazuichi Soda[]

Kazuichi has had a liking for Sonia since their times in Hope's Peak Academy. Kazuichi always supports Sonia's claims and defends her from any contradictions. Although Kazuichi shows a lot of interest in her, Sonia is far from interested in him and when talking to Hajime she refers to him as her stalker. She also is much more hostile towards Kazuichi than she is towards any other student. However, after escaping Jabberwock Island to assist the Future Foundation, Sonia smiles at and praises Kazuichi for destroying an army of Monokumas, showing that she now thinks of him as a friend and is at least making an attempt to be nicer to him. This is further shown when she appears to be waiting for Kazuichi to board the boat that will take them to the Future Foundation's Headquarters.

Hiyoko Saionji[]

Hiyoko is one of the people that Sonia tends to trust and invites in some events. Sonia even shows concern towards Hiyoko as when Hiyoko struggles putting on her kimono in Chapter 3. Sonia was devastated how Hiyoko, Ibuki, and Mikan are dead since they all died in the same case and states how she remembers Hiyoko danced while mourning for Mahiru. In Hiyoko's last Free Time Event, Hiyoko reveals that she hates Sonia and tells Hajime that she is irritated by how some of them are over-pampering Sonia, particularly Kazuichi. Hajime states that Hiyoko might be jealous, which Hiyoko denies.

Mikan Tsumiki[]

Mikan was another one of Sonia's friends before the Tragedy. Like Mahiru, Sonia is aware of how meek, paranoid, and very fragile Mikan is, and is also very gentle with her. Much like everyone else, Mikan's clumsiness surprises Sonia, but she is sympathetic for her. To avoid having Mikan cry from tripping after the blackout, she tells everyone to help her up. When a desperate crying Mikan tried to hide the fact that she's the killer and lied about Ibuki's cause of death, she said that she's not a coroner and that mistake is not her fault. Sonia agrees saying that she's been a great help to everyone, though Nagito says that a drunk medical student can notice the difference between a hanging and strangulation. When Mikan starts to giggle a lot as a sign of the Despair Disease and rave about her beloved, Sonia felt very concerned with her sudden change in behavior.

Fuyuhiko Kuzuryu[]

Sonia also doesn't like Fuyuhiko's easily angered and verbally abusive personality, as well as mouthing off his classmates for no apparent reason. In the first trial, Sonia rebukes Fuyuhiko when he gets verbally abusive at Mahiru for accusing him of inserting laxatives in Teruteru's food, and again when he threatens to murder Mikan in the second trial by saying "Only a coward threatens women." Despite of all this, she still treats him as a comrade and cares for his safety, such as when Fuyuhiko gets heavily injured after failing to intercept Peko's execution, and she feels comfortable around him when Fuyuhiko seems easily angered by Kazuichi's personality.

Future Foundation Members:


Sonia is one of the very few who treat Usami with a huge amount of respect. She also is worried about her well-being, as shown when she begs Monokuma to stop beating her up at the beginning of the 5th trial.

Reserve Course Students:

Hajime Hinata[]

Sonia had taken a liking to Hajime over the course of the Killing School Trip, to the point where she thought he was a hero from prophecy that would bring happiness to her land and wanted them to rule the Kingdom of Novoselic together after they escaped from the island.

  • "Furthermore, though Byakuya may be forceful, I believe he has the qualities to be an effective leader. Do you not remember what he said about being destined to stand above all others? He is truly attempting to fulfill that destiny by the strength of his own will. His impressive stature and physique is a testament to his desire to be the Ultimate Affluent Progeny, no? That...is truly grand."
  • "Society is much like fruit. Once it matures, it is inevitable that it will eventually rot. As the economy grows, the private sector stagnates as elders and bureaucrats become more and more powerful... As time passes, this power becomes the status quo, and crushes the seeds of any possible reformation... ...Such a sad trend."
  • "We should not have these fights. We are all friends here...!"
  • "Kazuichi! You should not doubt your friend!"
  • "I must tread carefully so my feet do not stumble. My adventurous heart is pounding with excitement!"
  • "Now that I have finally made friends...there is no way I can doubt them...!"
  • "If we are to survive...this is our only path."
  • "Truly, I am culturally ignorant. I am ashamed of myself..."
  • "He seems like the sort of person whose eyes light up while watching "Friday the 13th"... Just like me."
  • "Cease this bickering!"
  • "Nothing will come from fighting like this. There...there is something else that we must do. There...is something more important we must do. Do our best."
  • "We must first leave here...and get some rest. And then...we shall all work together and do our best. Do our best so we never have to come back here again. That is what...I believe we must do right now..."

Chapter 2:

  • "After all, it is essential that serial killers be mysterious! What an expert, yes!"
  • "Please hold on! It is a mistake to refer to these people as mere murderers! Coming in contact with a value system that differs from your own is a very important matter. Serial killers...their value system is very different than the norm... What a marvelous existence! Haaaaah! I'm totes intrigued!"
  • "However, an army marches with its stomachs. That being said, let us have breakfast."
  • "Mahiru...probably wants us to do this, too. She would want us to reveal the truth behind her death... But...what she really wanted... She probably wanted to spend time with all of us peacefully...without something like this happening..."
  • "I mean...no matter how much I think about it, I simply cannot believe it! That one of us is capable of committing such a horrible murder... No matter how much I think about it, I simply cannot believe it!"
  • "Fuyuhiko, you cannot do that. Only a coward threatens women."
  • "There should be a new clue contained in what Hiyoko has told us... So...let us believe Hiyoko's words and discuss it once again with everyone!"
  • "But that is... You are wrong... You are not a tool, Peko. Because...if you are a tool... Then what was all that time...we spent together!?"
  • "H-However...we must put that aside since Peko has already been punished... O-Or else we will not be able to advance forward...!"

Chapter 3:

  • "Get back! Who do you think I am!? Ahhh...that was unintentional...! It is okay...please be your usual self. I shall go wash my face and come back one more time! Now then, ta-ta!"
  • "It would be a waste to leave behind...such wonderful photos."
  • "...Hiyoko has a very kind heart."
  • "You are right... Fuyuhiko will not recover any faster if we just stand around and do nothing."
  • "N-Now is not the time for regret! Let us make haste!"
  • "It has happened once again... Two of my cherished friends died at the same time... I cannot believe it. This is the place where...Ibuki sang for Fuyuhiko... Hiyoko...looked like she was having so much fun listening to her music...And those two are no longer here... Ah...such a tragedy...!"
  • "...We must do this then. For the sake of the two who have fallen..."
  • "Hiyoko... It must be my fault, after all. Then...I must learn the truth behind this murder most foul! Now then, let us proceed!"
  • "The light of hope...? Um...I am happy Nekomaru is returning to us, but...but I... Three of our friends just died... So I honestly cannot be happy... However... ... Even so, I am still happy... If Nekomaru is safe, I am truly happy...!"
  • "Ibuki, Hiyoko...Mikan. Can you hear us? If you are unhappy, I apologize... However...please forgive me for right now... I...want to warmly welcome Nekomaru when he returns to us!"

Chapter 4:

  • "Stop fighting!!!"
  • "Rather...I feel as though the opportunity to kill increases every time we go to a new island... So...it might be best if we do not go..."
  • "If everyone is going, I shall accompany you as well."
  • "Huh!? There are amusement parks in hell!? I have never heard of such a thing! By all means, please allow me to accompany you next time!"
  • "Why have you given up!? There may still be something on this floor we have not searched yet!"
  • "I agree. Monokuma's eccentric taste would shock even an Indian."
  • "Yes, our team's discovery is number one! We shall not lose!"
  • "It is far too dangerous, even as an experiment! It is possible that we might violate the laws of robotics!"
  • "Why would Nagito say such cruel things...? The Nagito we know...would not talk like that, right? It is as if...he is a different person altogether!"
  • "I do not quite understand, but if it will satisfy Nagito... We should try it out...at the very least."
  • "I might have figured out the reason behind the chain's disappearance! Perhaps...what made this incomprehensible phenomenon possible is... Magic! Miiiiiindreak! Miiiiindreak!"
  • "Imbecile! I am not some woman with flexible legs!"
  • "Understood. Then I shall give it my all... Sonia, here I go!"
  • "No, you are far greater than the Ultimate Weapon, since you wield your Four Dark Devas of Destruction."
  • "Fo' sho! I shall leave this matter to your discretion!"
  • "Wh-Why are you asking that now...? Do you harbor a grudge because my kingdom destroyed your homeland?"
  • "If it is too heavy to carry...let them roll it... Just like if there is no bread, let them eat cake!"
  • "I-Is it really all right to accept the situation so easily!?"
  • "Silence, pest!"
  • "Please believe me! We are not lying!" (to Gundham)
  • "I cannot believe it... I just...cannot believe... You... You killed...Nekomaru...? I cannot believe something like that!"
  • "Wh-Why...? Why did you fight...? We are all friends... Why couldn't you stop this!? Even if both sides agreed... It was still wrong!"
  • "You...are right... This time around...we must move forward... We must continue to live and believe in our friends... If not... Gundham will most likely crawl his way out of hell, and I presume he will be very cross with us..."

Chapter 5:

  • "In the end...Gundham told us to never give up on life... So I will never give up. I shall fight until the very end. Gundham...please watch over me."
  • "She is right! No matter what, you are our friend! You know, there is a saying in Japan! Fear is grateful for the danger!"
  • "Settle down! If you have the power to fight among yourselves, then direct that power toward our enemy! Now then, let us go forth! Offense is the best defense!"
  • "We were so distracted by all of the horrible situations that kept happening, one after the other... We might have overlooked...a more pressing issue."
  • "Kazuichi Soda! Shut up! How can you not believe in your friends after everything we have endured together!?"
  • "What Nagito just said... Is he implying that believing in each other is a weakness!? That is absurd!"
  • "The issue is not with what he means! Please take back what you said about Byakuya dying in vain! You have been acting very strange lately! I do not like this version of Nagito we have been witness to!"
  • "There is no such person! I mean...the notion that one of us has been deceiving us all along... I will never, ever believe that!"
  • "Gundham...gave his life so he could teach us something important... At the time, Gundham scolded me for attempting to stop his execution... But looking back on it...he would forgive me with a smile on his face, right? Gundham stayed true to himself until the very end... I will never forget that!"
  • "This is not a request...this is an order!"
  • "Then...I may not be competent, so please be patient with me." (to Hajime)
  • "That is right. Courage and recklessness are completely different. If you were shot at by a gun like that, you would have more holes in you than a Beatrice's nest..."
  • "How can you grip the trousersnake if you do not enter its den!? It is a saying for situations like this, right? When you know there is danger but you still must face it! ...What does "grip the trousersnake" mean anyway?"
  • "Then what would you have us do!? Just wait until we all die!? That...is no different than when we were in the Funhouse... And what did we learn there? We learned not to give up on living...right?"
  • "Um...I have not given up yet. I will do my very best to live until the very end. If not...I will not be able to face Gundham, Nekomaru, or the others who have died!"
  • "So this is the power of the Japanese "teru teru bozu"...!"
  • "E-nough already! W-We already have enough to deal with concerning Nagito... Please...do not say anything else that will confuse us...!" (to Monokuma and Monomi)
  • "If only everyone could go home... Nothing would make me happier... No...we should finish the Class Trial, then we can think about what will happen after."
  • "Oh...oh my...? Do you...do you suspect me? I-It is a misunderstanding! I am not the killer! Jesus! Shit! You son of a bitch!"
  • "The bomb was not real, it was merely a fireworks display. God damn it all to hell!"
  • "A plushie bomb is an act of terrorism! Let us rip these apart right away so we can confirm it!"
  • "So...it is going to happen again... The cruel conflict...where we must doubt our friends..."
  • "Nagito...was problematic in many ways...but he was also a valuable asset during the trials..."
  • "Damn right it is"!
  • "Just as I thought, it *was* the wind pressure! A dust devil blown here from glorious Japan!"
  • "Akane! You should not give it away for free! Make sure they pay you first!"
  • "Th-There is a limit to his constitution! If you got penetrated by something is so big and thick, you would die instantly!"
  • "Like I said...if you get penetrated by something so big and thick, you would die instantly!"
  • "I am sorry... Of course this mystery will not be solved that easily..."
  • "It seems we are stuck... Shall we have tea time?"
  • "Exactly! We should cooperate at a time like this!"
  • "Is giving up all we can do?"
  • "W-we were not tricked! After all, we have been working together all this time... We have been helping each other all this time... Chiaki...being a traitor... Being a member of that horrifying Future Foundation... That is obviously a lie!"
  • "If you say you are the traitor, please provide an explanation that will help us understand! We cannot vote until we are satisfied. That is what you said earlier, Chiaki!"
  • "There must be some mistake! I mean...if Chiaki is the traitor... What was all that time we spent with her!? Was that all a lie too!? Chiaki is... She is being controlled by Monokuma. That is why...we should help her..."
  • "Why are you saying such things!? Do you really want Chiaki to be the traitor!? ...I will not believe it! I refuse to believe Chiaki is the traitor! There is...just no way!"
  • "Enough already... Please do not say another word... I do not want this anymore... I am so very tired...of doubting people... A-And...just because she knew the bomb was a fake... ...does not mean we should decide she is the traitor!"
  • "Are you telling us to believe in you...and sacrifice you? That is just too cruel..."
  • "I-I cannot believe it... Even though I do not want to believe it... ...There is no choice but to believe, right?"
  • "E-Even if you were a traitor... You...never betrayed us. Chiaki...you will always be our friend. Even now... We don't blame you for this! That's why you don't need to apologize!"
  • "Now then, let us make haste to ancient ruin! As long as we work together, we will not lose to Monokuma or anyone else!"

Chapter 6:

  • "Hell yes!"
  • "It will be fine... There will no longer be any situations where we must exchange each others' lives... So we should do our best as well! Like they say, "It is not scary if everyone stops at a green light"!"
  • "I shall do my best to obtain a wonderful clue that will be useful to everyone. Now then, excuse me."
  • "Please do not compare reality to contact lenses!" (to Monokuma)
  • "Do not joke about the world ending!" (to Monokuma)
  • "I-It is cowardly of you to j-just ignore us!"
  • "But...if we do not understand the principles behind it, then we do not even know if it is really possible..."
  • "There is no way we can choose to stay here after all we've been through..."
  • "This is nothing to LOL about!" (to Alter Ego Junko)
  • "Th-The footage you recorded with the surveillance cameras...was shown to the Future Foundation? Wh-What shall I do...? I did a lot of...disgraceful things in front of those cameras! I will never be Queen now! Please forget what you saw!"
  • "I do not want any more last minute plot twists..."
  • "H-How...much of ourselves do we have to sacrifice?"
  • "Um...I wonder... I do not really understand it myself, but... I just...I just saw it. When my body felt so heavy that I could not move, when I felt as though I was sinking into a deep, black sea... It was at that moment, I somehow heard Hajime's voice... And though it was just a flash, I saw it. Like a lighthouse beacon shining across an ocean of darkness... A warm, yet resolute, light... The one who shined that light...it was probably... ...You saw it too, right Hajime? The future we are going to create from this moment on, it is also the future that everyone has created, right? Then...there is no way we can stop now!"
  • "Um...I am sorry to trouble everyone but... Even if we awaken in the real world and forget about what transpired here... ...it will still have meaning, right?"
  • "Even if I forget...I will use all my might and remember!"

Free Time Events:

  • "I am truly happy that someone has casually walked up to me to speak to me... This must be what it means to have classmates! I am very touched!"
  • "However, what happens next depends on us. As long as we do not kill anyone, this will all be fine."
  • "I do not intend to kill anyone...and I do not intend to be killed easily either!"
  • "Anyway, let's forget about killings and cooperate with one another so we can return home quickly. If you have any good ideas, feel free to let me know. I shall also do my best to think of something, too."
  • "You are hopeless... Since I have already sailed this far, I will sink you into the ocean."
  • "Though I understand it is a forbidden interest for a princess, I am quite interested in Freemasonry! Of course, my interest is purely academic. I have no intention of conspiring to overthrow the government."
  • "However...expanding my knowledge like this is the duty every member of the royal family. And that is why I am interested in the occult, cults, and popular dramas!"
  • "Hajime, please think about it. Do you not agree that dismissing a different set of values due to ignorance is foolish? How many foolish wars have be fought on the basis of that ignorance...?"
  • "Using the knowledge of the past, we shall develop a new energy source from our old traditions! I understand that it may be a difficult path... However, I shall accomplish it by any means! Guiding my people along the right path is the duty of a ruler!"
  • "Although I cannot allow killing under any circumstances, the lives of humans are shaped by destiny... Just because we make an effort to prevent danger, it does not mean we can defy destiny. Besides...my life belongs to my country and its people. If I were to die, it would be for no other reason than the sake of my country and my people. If I die here...it would be meaningful to my country and my people. So...I do not fear death. The moment I was born into the royal family, I was destined not to die a meaningless death."
  • "If I showed my fear, it would fill my people with despair... That is why...I had to wait in silence until rescue arrived. I actually think this situation is easier, since I can honestly feel fear for a change."
  • "When I am in my country, I am a princess before I am a person. And because of that...I was truly looking forward to this visit. I thought when I came to Japan I could be a regular girl... But in the end, no matter where I go...I am nothing but a princess."

Island Mode:

  • "A park without benches is like a trendy drama without a kissing scene after the lovers bump into each other..."
  • "Um, it is like a dream come true to experience making cute noises while we frolic on the beach..."
  • "I am terribly sorry, but I have an image and reputation that I must maintain..."
  • "When a man and a woman come to the beach, they must do this cliched but important event at least once! Such as placing shells to your ear, trading pretty shells with each other... And if the insides are still intact, taking it home and eating it... Oh my, how wonderful! Now then, let us begin!"
  • "I am extremely happy to be blessed with someone who understands me so well..."
  • "Meals must be eaten during meal time! Please endure our hunger until then!"
  • "Watching a romantic love story on a date at the movie theater... Oh my... Such a cliched outcome.. But that is why it is amazing! Those who laugh at cliches will be brought to tears by them!"
  • "I do not mind them, either... However, it is possible that it is actually the worst choice of all. It would be tragic if we did not laugh at all, but it would be dreadful if our senses of humor did not match."
  • "No matter how boring the movie is, it is tantamount to fraud to criticize it without watching it to the end. No, in fact, you must pay even more attention to the boring scenes... That is the essence of drama!"
  • "Jeez Hajime, you sure are rushing things. Slow and steady wins the race. It is best to climb up there when the sun is setting so we can enjoy the night view."
  • "Now then, let us leave this place and go look for a spot that will make our hearts stir with passion!"
  • "What in the world are you planning to use them for? Depending on your answer... Capital punishment may be required."
  • "...Until now, I always believed that dates were meant to be expensive and extravagant. And yet, I was able to have so much fun simply by spending time with you... ...For some reason, it is very mysterious. Please ask me out again. Until that time, I shall be waiting... Now then, let us get ready to leave. Of course, we shall hold hands together."
  • "If I cannot even choose my own path, there is no way I can guide my country! I will be even more devoted!"
  • "Hajime... Thank you very much. But if I have made a commoner worry so much about me, then I have failed as a princess."
  • "...When I return to my country, I will no longer have any freedom. As a member of the royal family, I must fulfill my destiny and dedicate my life to my country and people... That has been my promise since the beginning."
  • "No matter what anyone says, I shall believe in you. That is why...you must believe in me as well. Please."

Ultimate Talent Development Plan:

  • "To become a normal girl, and to live as a normal girl...is a deep longing of mine."
  • "I thank you with all my heart for listening to my sudden tale of woe. Truly, you are sweeter than any millennial confection. I was right to trust you."
  • "So Maki is the opposing captain... I sense a worthy adversary! However, as they say, you must check yourself before you neck yourself..."
  • "Wow, my opponent is none other than the formidable Hina... However, I have a duty as a member of the royal family to overcome this powerful foe... My body's readiness is hella maximum! You have my permission to bring it, fool!"
  • "The two of us shall work together. Just like in school dramas, let us work up a youthful sweat!" (To Chiaki)
  • "To predict my future...is the same as predicting my entire country's future. You may see things you don't wish to see and learn things you don't wish to know."
  • "Hmhm...I am sorry. Right now, I am simply watching everyone enjoy their food... I am here to enjoy their happiness. Simply watching you eat with the intensity of a lion fills my heart with pride!"
  • "Christmas with friends... That is lovely, indeed. Please enjoy yourself. We both shall boogie down and have ourselves a par-tay!"
  • "Of course, formalities are essential. However, the most important quality is one's heart."
  • "Being considerate towards those you are dining with is the core of etiquette."
  • "You will acquire knowledge in time, so please treasure your gentlemanly heart."
  • "No matter where I am... No matter the time... We are all connected, correct? It is my wish that we can all see each other again at any time, yes?"

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

  • "Careless Hachibei!"


  • The name "Sonia" is a Slavic variant of the name "Sophia", which means "wisdom". It is very widespread nowadays, especially in eastern Europe and Scandinavia.
    • "Sonia" is also a feminine given name in Hindi, derived from the word सोना sonāa, which means "golden" - matching Sonia's hair color.
  • Sonia's surname is taken from the title of the band Nirvana's second album, Nevermind.
    • Her home country of Novoselic is named after Nirvana's bassist, Krist Novoselic.
    • Before attending Hope's Peak, Sonia attended In Utero high school, which is the name of Nirvana's final studio album. She still wears her uniform from her time there.
  • In Chapter 4, Sonia indirectly declares to Gundham that she isn't a virgin. However, this may be because she misunderstood due to being a foreigner, as in Japanese Gundham used the word shojo (処女) for virgin, which when spoken sounds identical to shōjo (少女) meaning little/young girl, implying Sonia meant she is not a little girl.
    • The term 'virgin' also refers to someone who has not used their blood for a satanic ritual, and due to her obsession with the occult, it could also mean that she has partaken in such a rite in the past.
    • However, during the Trial on the 6th Chapter, Sonia reveals she has been doing "indecent" things in front of the surveillance cameras. It's only implied what she means, but Byakuya Togami agrees with this.
    • In Danganronpa 3, Sonia again heavily implies that she isn't a virgin, and this time the characters are talking about a sexual situation.
  • In an interview with Yoshinori Terasawa, he states that Sonia probably adopted the Four Dark Devas of Destruction after Gundham's execution.
  • She can be regarded as a red herring for the culprit of Chapter 2. In the debate of what happened to the blood on the culprit, Ibuki pointed out per agree point that the culprit could have worn a wetsuit to take care of the bloodstains. Sonia wore a wetsuit when the girls decided to go to the beach and met up at the diner. The wetsuits are shown to be in the same closet at the beach house where Hiyoko was lying unconscious and the killer was hiding. Sonia also pointed out that she arrived late to the meeting, being noted by Kazuichi to have been after 4:00 pm, so after Mahiru was murdered, because she had trouble putting on the swimsuit, which also was a surprise that she decided to wear one. It's also noted by Kazuichi to Hajime in the supermarket that the entire idea with the beach and meeting at the diner came from Sonia which was also supposed to be girls only.
  • Sonia has by far the most agree points in the entire game at 6.
  • One of her sprites is a reference to Rosie the Riveter.
  • In Island Mode, Sonia make a reference to Mafuba, a technique designed to seal demons away in a famous manga, Dragon Ball.
  • Sonia's Japanese voice actress, Miho Arakawa, is known for her role as Himari Takakura from the anime Mawaru Penguindrum, and was one of the three voice actors requested by the creators to portray a specific character in the game, the others being Kotono Mitsuishi, voice actress of Peko and Nobuyo Ōyama, voice actress of Monokuma.
    • Arakawa also voiced Tsubasa Kamii in Danganronpa 3 - Despair Arc.
  • Sonia's English voice actress, Natalie Hoover, also voices Monophanie in Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony.[5]
  • Sonia's stage actress, Jaimie Natsuki, is married to Gundham's stage actor Masahiro Inoue.[6]
