The Ultimate Hunt (超高校級狩り Chō kōkō-kyū kari lit. Super High School Level Hunt) is a major event in the backstory of Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony.
The Ultimate Hunt is an events which started during the events of the Gofer Project. The event occurred due to people around the world finding out about the Gofer Project and started as a result, the Ultimate Hunt. The Ultimate Hunt began to encompass the entire world, and the sixteen students who had tried to run away were gradually cornered. And so the organization that had tried to implement the Gofer Project in the first place tried to counter that situation.
As a result, the Ultimate students erased their own memories in order to escape the Ultimate Hunt and live an ordinary live as normal high school students and die along with everyone else. They began spreading false rumors, saying that all sixteen students had been killed by the organization. By doing so, the Future Foundation managed to calm down the Ultimate Hunt while providing protection to those sixteen students. And finally, they were able to put the Gofer Project into action.
During the Killing School Semester. the Ultimate Hunt was first mentioned when the Monokubs introduced themselves and started to talk to the students about their "lost memories" about them having a Ultimate talent and supposedly erasing them to run away from the Gofer Plan.
Rantaro was the only participant who knew from the start what the Ultimate Hunt was, as he asked in Chapter 1 if anyone else remembered it. It is later revealed that before getting his memory altered, he wrote a message to his future self about it using his Survivor Perk.
