Ultimate Imposter

Don't worry, as long as I'm the leader, I won't let anyone become a victim. I will guide you all! That much, I promise.

Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair

The Ultimate Imposter (超高校級の「詐欺師」), 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. They impersonate Byakuya Togami as the Ultimate Affluent Progeny (超高校級の「御曹司」 lit. Super High School Level Heir).

They, 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.


The Ultimate Imposter's real appearance is that of a person with long, black hair and green eyes. They have a very heavy build; despite this, they can fool others with their disguises even if a real counterpart does not share a body type.

Their gender is unknown, but they are able to give off a largely male impression while disguised as Byakuya and even mimic his voice and poses perfectly. In Danganronpa 3, their real voice is quite deep and masculine. However, originally in Danganronpa 2, the brief glimpse of their apparent real voice sounded notably different, more high-pitched and rather gender-neutral.

"Byakuya Togami"[]

As Byakuya, the Imposter appears very similar to the real one, having blond hair and bright blue eyes accompanied by rectangular, white-framed glasses. Their shirt appears to be the same one as the real Byakuya in the first game; however, "Byakuya" is very heavy set and wears a white dinner jacket, white slacks, and white dress shoes.

As an Ultimate Despair, the Imposter, still disguised as "Byakuya", wears night vision goggles that shone red light from within.

"Ryota Mitarai"[]

As Ryota, the imposter has short, light brown hair, hazel eyes, and rosy cheeks. They wear a Hope's Peak Academy uniform with a green tie.

"Kyosuke Munakata"[]

As Kyosuke, the imposter has short white hair and dark purple eyes. They wear a white suit that Kyosuke wears in Future Arc.


The Ultimate Imposter's true personality is somewhat unknown because they spend most of their time mimicking someone else's behavior. However, during chapter 6 of the second game, they speak briefly without disguise and it's implied that their real nature is polite and meek. In Danganronpa 3, they're shown to have a quite collected and serious personality.

Most notably, the Imposter appears to have a truly kind and caring personality. They impersonated Ryota Mitarai so that the real one could focus on making anime, as well as get some rest, and kept checking on his well-being even after a year of impersonating him. The Imposter is also shown to be smiling in a friendly manner and being protective and supportive to others even while acting as the cold and arrogant Byakuya Togami. As part of their Byakuya impersonation, they act arrogant, rude and somewhat bad-tempered, but they're also reliable and feel responsible for others' safety.

The Imposter enjoys their build, which appears to be their aim, as they've stated to have intentionally sculpted their physique to be that way (while acting as Byakuya, they appear condescending towards "skinny people", though this is most likely part of their act). They have a strong liking for food, especially fast food; while they normally appear attentive, they are rather easily distracted by food. They are shown to be surprisingly passionate about the topics related to food and eating, such as body fat percentages, the amount of energy coming from specific foods, and fast food restaurants. They explained that, since virtually all fast food restaurants serve the same kind of food, it gives them a sense of security to keep being around something familiar.

Due to their nature as an impostor, they have a lack, if not the absence of, self-esteem. Because of it, they feel very lonely as if they do not exist. They simply want to exist and live a normal life, but they believe they cannot unless they assume someone else's appearance and "disappear" if they're found out. They describe their life as a living hell, as they're in constant need of affirmation and they have to lie to other people. Because of this, they preferred not to become close with other people, thinking that only thing in the world you can truly rely on and believe in is "fats and sugars".

At one point, in Danganronpa 2, they ask if Hajime Hinata likes being around them, and they seemed very happy when Hajime answers that they are friends. After spending time with Hajime, they are convinced that they really do exist, and they decide they don't want to lie anymore and wish to live as their true self with their friends. Despite having a better sense of self, it's shown in Side: Hope that they still prefer being in disguises (albeit only physically).


Ultimate Imposter[]

The Ultimate Imposter doesn't have a name, family register, relatives, and anything that could link them with their true identity. In order to have their existence acknowledged, they took other people's data and learned it so they could be able to impersonate them flawlessly. They could impersonate the person in question's voice and personality perfectly.

No one could tell the difference between the Ultimate Imposter and the real person that they impersonated. According to Monokuma, even their noticeably heavy body build does not affect their ability to fool others. This, along with the fact that they are capable of changing their appearance extremely quickly without anyone noticing, implies that their talent is near superhuman.

In Danganronpa 3, all of Class 77-B and Chisa don't recognize the real Ryota Mitarai's true appearance until they accidentally met with Chisa, who wondered how the real Ryota could lose his weight in a very short time.

In Despair Arc #09, they revealed to their classmates that they were a fake version of Ryota and decided to become themselves afterward.

Prior to the Tragedy[]

The Ultimate Imposter is a person who was born with nothing - no name, family, birth certificate nor home; or more simply, no identity at all. They were convinced that they were nothing; their existence completely invisible and their life without any meaning. All they wanted was to live a normal life.

Because of this, they chose to live on stealing another person's identity, hence their true Ultimate title. They hated this way of living, which made them unhappy and forced them to lie to other people, but they felt it was something they had to do in order to exist. It appears they found comfort in fast food which was always similar regardless of location. They became very enthusiastic about food and decided to gain a heavier build.

In Danganronpa Kirigiri, Yuzen Minase accused Kyoko Kirigiri of being the, at the time, junior high school aged Ultimate Imposter. Yuzen had heard rumors around the internet of this young swindlers reputation, and believed Kyoko was not a detective but a con-woman.

According to the Danganronpa 3 Blu-Ray Bonus Discs, the Ultimate Imposter posed as Koichi Kizakura to help scout classmates for 77-B, while the real Koichi was too intoxicated to do his job. Once Koichi found out about this, he gave the Ultimate Imposter a position at the academy as well.

When the Ultimate Imposter enrolled in Hope's Peak Academy's Class 77-B, they acted as Byakuya Togami because he had the most absolute existence the Imposter had ever seen. However, they soon began to impersonate Ryota Mitarai, so that the other boy could spend all his time on animating. Ryota worked too much and often forgot to eat, and his impostor often checked on him and brought him food, and the two lived together.

During their second year at Hope's Peak Academy, the Imposter met Junko and was corrupted into Ultimate Despair by her.

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

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

"Ryota Mitarai" was working on some animation work as an "animator" in the Former Student Dorm. The room is shown to be very dirty and filled with instant ramen cups, unwashed dishes, manga, books, and files. As the new homeroom teacher, Chisa Yukizome, knocked on the door, the imposter feigned panic, thinking that the one who knocked on the door was the real Ryota’s boss. Due to some unfinished work, the imposter attempted to escape via windows only to be found by Chisa. She greeted them happily and dragged them back to the school, while the Ultimate Imposter tried to use various excuses to stay behind.

The Ultimate Imposter once again tried to escape from Chisa when they encountered Hajime and Chiaki Nanami in the park, but was immediately tied up by Chisa. After returning to class, Chisa told everyone that even though the school rule said that attending class was not necessary and that they could skip to better hone their talents, interacting with one another would help build their characters and help them to make memories.

Episode 02 - My Impurest Heart for You[]

The Ultimate Imposter was drawing sketches inside their class while Akane Owari and Nekomaru Nidai wreaked havoc during their training session. The imposter went outside to better focus before they met Chiaki, who was upset that everyone else didn’t come too. The Ultimate Imposter said that they didn't need to make friends as long as they honed their talents, the future was already grasped.

During the break time after they played games together, the Ultimate Imposter and their classmates happily ate Teruteru’s and Hiyoko Saionji's nikujaga. They ate a big portion of the food and saw Nagito crying due to the food's deliciousness. Unlike the rest of his classmates, the Ultimate Imposter merely writhed around on the ground after being affected by the food's aphrodisiacs.

After everyone recovered, Chisa gathered the Ultimate Imposter and their classmates inside the classroom, announcing that she elected Chiaki as their class representative. Like the others, the Ultimate Imposter agreed with her decision.

Episode 03 - A Farewell to All Futures[]

At the beginning of the episode, the Ultimate Imposter was talking to someone on their phone while them and his classmates walked past Hajime heading toward the Main Course building.

The Ultimate Imposter was also shown drawing a sketch on the school's park with their classmates during the break time.

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

Along with their classmates, the Ultimate Imposter showed no spirit when they listened to Chisa's announcement about the annual practical exam due to the deaths of Natsumi Kuzuryu and Sato that affected their morale greatly.

At the end of the episode, the Ultimate Imposter and their classmates bid their farewell to their beloved teacher Chisa as she transferred to the Reserve Course after the bombing incident on the gym that involved one of her students, Nagito.

Episode 05 - The Beginning of the End[]

The Ultimate Imposter advised Ryota to eat something and take a break, but Ryota doesn't listen and eventually passes out from exhaustion and malnutrition. The Imposter finds Mikan and brings her to help care for Ryota, and to avoid confusion, explains their backstory with Ryota.

Mikan assumes that the Imposter won't let her leave alive now that she knows his secret, but the Imposter gently tells her to not be silly. Mikan assumes they want to have sex with her, which they refute. Mikan starts crying and thanks them, saying no one has ever been so nice to her. The Imposter advises her to have more self confidence since they will be upperclassmen starting tomorrow.

Episode 06 - A Despairfully Fateful Encounter[]

The Ultimate Imposter is seen talking to Ryota, reminding him to go to the hospital.

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

After Class 77-B move to the new school building, the Ultimate Imposter informed Mikan that they haven't heard news of Ryota since a week ago after he left a note that he would focus on his work.

As the news of The Tragedy of Hope's Peak Academy spread and caused the Reserve Course students to riot, the Ultimate Imposter and their classmates worried about their school’s condition. After Ryota left, the Ultimate Imposter received a note from Mikan, saying that she is helping Ryota.

Episode 08 - The Worst Reunion by Chance[]

After hearing from Nagito upon his return that he saw Mikan around the West District of the school, the Ultimate Imposter grabs him by the scruff of the neck and demands him to give more information. Nagito picks on their sudden change of character before the Ultimate Imposter plays it down as getting overly excited. They and the rest of the class go searching for Mikan on the school grounds, going around in a group with Akane and Nekomaru, Akane begins to think about food and asks if the Ultimate Imposter is hungry to which they awkwardly reply no.

Episode 09 - Chisa Yukizome Doesn't Smile[]

Having failed to locate Mikan, the Ultimate Imposter and their classmates return to the classroom. Chiaki shows up carrying Nagito and explains that Chisa is in danger. Mikan also turns up with a wounded Peko. Chiaki rallies the class to go help Chisa, and the Ultimate Imposter rips off their Ryota mask, revealing their real face. They admit they have been deceiving them all because of their talent, and feels it is time they all know the truth. The class rushes to go and save Chisa, but they encounter some angry Reserve Course students. Nekomaru and Gundham stay to hold them off while the rest continue underground. As they walk down the stairs, Chiaki says she feels that together they can do anything. The Ultimate Imposter says that they feel the same way now that Chiaki has said it.

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

The Ultimate Imposter 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 the Ultimate Imposter and the rest of the class. Only to find it was Nekomaru and Gundham, the class relieved that they are both okay. Ibuki proclaims all that is left is to save Chisa, to which the Ultimate Imposter 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, the Ultimate Imposter and the rest of the class follow her inside. Once inside, Junko reveals multiple monitors showing Chiaki Nanami's Punishment, Sonia responding saying 'she can't move' leads the Ultimate Imposter to question if it's 'the video'. Horrified by what they are seeing, they want to find a way to save Chiaki but are powerless.

Once Chiaki reaches the "goal" in her execution, she opens the door. She sees the Ultimate Imposter, 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, the Ultimate Imposter and the class fall silent, with a patterned swirl in their eyes, as they are now Ultimate Despair.

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

The Ultimate Imposter 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, the Ultimate Imposter and the rest of the class clap with gratitude.

After the speech, red lights turn on, and Chisa started to cry. The patterned swirled return in their eyes as they all make a declaration of what they will do upon graduation. The Ultimate Imposter tearfully expressed they could 'become anyone' they wanted, even president.

After bidding her class a final farewell, Chisa activated a bomb that fakes the death of Class 77-B. The Ultimate Imposter and their classmates stand outside the school grounds as they watch Hope's Peak Academy's destruction.

Chisa's narration later revealed that the Ultimate Imposter helped infect the world with despair.

During the Tragedy[]

The members of Ultimate Despair did all kinds of horrible things during the Tragedy, causing despair all over the world.

After the death of Junko, the remnants of the Ultimate Despair agreed to an insane plan to have AI Junko take over their bodies so they could resurrect their leader.

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

Episode 01 - Third Time's the Charm[]

Impersonating Byakuya Togami, the Ultimate Imposter is seen in the flashback as a member of Ultimate Despair nimbly dodging Future Foundation's attack with their night vision goggles.

Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair[]

The remnants of Despair are later found by the 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 AI Junko, right according to the Ultimate Despair's plan.

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

While in the Neo World Program, the Ultimate Imposter acts as Byakuya Togami, as they have lost their school memories.

In the very beginning, Byakuya was not very sociable with the others, making his introduction short and simple. He also refused to join in on the short-lived beach party.

After Monokuma took over the island and ordered the Killing School Trip, Byakuya immediately began to take action, making himself the leader of the group and promising the safety of all the students.

Chapter 1 - Destination Despair[]

The next day, after Monokuma revealed the truth about everybody's memories having been erased as well as the presence of a traitor in their group, Byakuya proposes the idea to hold a party that very night without explaining his reason.

At a suggestion, they gain permission from Monomi to use the Old Lodge next to the Lobby as the location for the party, as the area has no monitors for Monokuma to spy on them from. As the Old Lodge was old, when it came to choosing who should clean the place, Nagito offered to draw straws that he had prepared beforehand. Nagito won the lottery, thanks to his luck, and accepted the duty to clean the lodge while Teruteru offered to cook for the party. Fuyuhiko Kuzuryu refused to attend the party, and though the other students questioned it, Byakuya allowed him to go.

Throughout the party, Byakuya showed strange levels of precaution that many of the students questioned. He went as far as to hold a body check at the entrance of the party, patting down every student whether female or male and confiscating any materials that they considered dangerous in a duralumin case (such as taking a wrench away from Kazuichi Soda).

When they saw the food set out in the main room of the Old Lodge, he seemed to be alarmed before suddenly digging into the churrasco Teruteru prepared for the party, much to the surprise of the other members and the dismay of Akane.

Their reason was revealed to be that the churrasco was pierced by large skewers which he deemed extremely dangerous. He subsequently went to the kitchen to confiscate any sharp objects from knives to skewers based on the list hung up in there, though he noted that one of the items on the list seemed to be missing.

When the party was about to start, he decided to keep the duralumin case full of confiscated potential weapons in the Surveillance Room/Office. Peko Pekoyama volunteered to guard the duralumin case and keep watch over the party there, as the place had several security monitors.

Chiaki Nanami and Monomi offered to keep watch outside as to keep Monokuma from finding them and crashing the party. Other than the duralumin case kept in the Office, Byakuya kept a second one beside them at the party, the contents of which were unknown at the time.

Midway through the party around 11:30 pm, a sudden blackout, combined with the blocked windows of the lodge, caused the interior of the building to go completely dark. It was revealed that Byakuya had kept several self-defense and precautionary items in the second duralumin case, using night vision goggles to see what was going on.

In the darkness, he saw Nagito acting suspiciously, trying to retrieve something from under a table, and reacted immediately by diving under the table and pushing him out of the way. He found that a knife was stationed under the table, held in place by glow-in-the-dark tape and its handle covered in the same material.

Teruteru, who knew of Nagito's suspicious activity as well, waited in preparation under the floorboards for the knife to move. He blindly stabbed at whoever was under the table with the missing skewer from earlier and ended up killing Byakuya.

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

In Chapter 5, much later in the game, Hajime went into Nagito's room for investigation purposes for the upcoming Fifth Trial. In there, he found the files that Nagito had received from Monokuma as a prize for clearing the Final Dead Room in Chapter 4 and discovered that the Byakuya he thought they had all known was actually an imposter. 'Byakuya's profile listed '???' for his name, age, birthdate, and even gender, and their Ultimate talent as the 'Ultimate Imposter'.

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

In the 'Game Reset' scene of Chapter 6, "Byakuya" makes a re-appearance, but their way of talking and their voice is no longer Byakuya Togami; instead, their voice has changed into a gender-neutral one, and they wonder if they should re-introduce himself. Whether this is the Ultimate Imposter's true face or simply an illusion created by Hajime is unknown.

Epilogue - The Day Before the Future[]

The Ultimate Imposter is rendered comatose, just like most of his classmates. The survivors of the Killing Game wait for them and the rest of their classmates to wake up.

Danganronpa 2.5: Nagito Komaeda and the World Vanquisher[]

Illusion World[]

The Ultimate Imposter returned in Byakuya's form as a part of Nagito's imaginary world following their death from the Neo World Program.

Before class began in the morning, the Ultimate Imposter is seen conversing with Ryota happily.

The Ultimate Imposter later attended Kazuichi's funeral due to him being murdered by the World Destroyer.


After Nagito awoke from the simulation, he learned that all of his friends, including the Ultimate Imposter, were alive and awake from the Neo World Program. He boarded the boat with the rest of Class 77-B and they all then headed for the Future Foundation Headquarters.

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

Thanks to Hajime mixed with Izuru's incredible abilities, the Ultimate Imposter and the other fallen Remnants of Despair awoke from their coma. They and the others were taken off of Jabberwock Island and brought to the Future Foundation off-shore facility. They then took the form of Kyosuke Munakata and joined Kyosuke in battle.

Later, they took the form of Ryota again and talked Ryota out of using the Hope brainwashing video. They and their classmates then invite Ryota to come and live with them. Ryota ended the broadcast of his Hope Video and fell to the floor in tears, The Ultimate Imposter holding him in a comforting embrace.

As they departed, the Imposter assumed the form of Byakuya. They showed concern for Ryota as he appeared to be even skinnier than they remembered. They smiled at Ryota as they recalled the advice they had always given him during their time at Hope's Peak Academy, that the only thing you can really believe in is 'fats and sugars'.


Class 77-B:

Ryota Mitarai[]

Fellow member of the 77th class of Hope's Peak Academy. At some point, after the Class 78th entered Hope's Peak, the Imposter helped out Ryota and got his permission to impersonate him. While the Imposter attended class, Ryota stayed at the apartment to make anime. The Ultimate Imposter became good friends with Ryota, but often worried about him because Ryota was starting to abandon his own health to focus on making anime. One day, when Ryota becomes ill due to starvation, the Imposter shared their secret with Mikan just to get her to help him.

According to the relationship chart, Ryota questions if the Ultimate Imposter taking his place is really okay, showing that he was concerned at first about the morality of the situation.

However, when Ultimate Imposter joins Ultimate Despair, their friendship with Ryota comes to an end because the latter decides to join the Future Foundation.

After the Imposter returns from their coma, they along with the other Remnants of Despair convince Ryota not to release his Hope Brainwashing video. Ryota was happiest to see the Imposter. The two embrace and sink to the ground as Ryota cries into the Imposter’s arms. Afterward, the Imposter introduces Ryota to their class while showing concern that Ryota isn't eating well because he looks skinnier than he remembers. The two are shown to have become close friends once again.

Mikan Tsumiki[]

While the two almost never interacted in the game, the Imposter's relationship with Mikan is explored in Danganronpa 3 - Despair Arc. When Ryota's health started to worsen, the Imposter shared their secret with Mikan in order to get the Ultimate Nurse to help his friend. Surprisingly, the Imposter was not worried about sharing their secret with Mikan, placing their full trust in her. Mikan agreed to keep their secret. The Imposter was very kind to Mikan and encouraged her to be more confident due to her shy nature. Because Mikan did not receive this kind of treatment often, she took a liking to them, and the two become close friends.

The Ultimate Imposter was arguably the most worried about Mikan when she disappeared from class all of a sudden. When Nagito claims he saw Mikan on his way to the school, the Imposter threatened Nagito on instinct, only to apologize afterward.

Ibuki Mioda[]

Ibuki admires Ultimate Imposter while they are impersonating as Byakuya Togami, thinking that they're very cool and reliable and she admires their leadership skills. They are sometimes a bit annoyed with her.

During chapter 2, after their death, she states that she misses "Byakuya" a lot. In addition, during chapter 5 when she and the other deceased characters show up, she greets them by oinking and explaining that she said “You're so cool” in pig talk.

While not apparent in the game, many manga adaptations portray Ibuki with some sort of crush on the Imposter and she's often shown to be attracted to their heavy build. Though, it should be noted that the manga is non-canon.

Nagito Komaeda[]

Unlike most of their classmates, Ultimate Imposter didn't seem to outright hate Nagito or show any disdain toward him, though they were sometimes a little confused by his strange behavior. They sat beside Nagito while they ate and were willing to talk with him, asking why he was tearing up while eating. They were also the only one of his classmates to ask about Nagito's expulsion.

Akane Owari[]

While the Imposter and Akane don't interact much in the main story, Akane was happy when she thought the real Byakuya Togami was the Imposter brought back to life. In Ultimate Talent Development Plan, they bond over their mutual love of food. Despite their bonding, Akane is still unable to tell the difference between the Imposter and Byakuya.

Hiyoko Saionji[]

The Imposter is also one of Hiyoko's targets for her contant bullying, with Hiyoko calling them "Mr. Ham Hands" due to their obese appearance. However, the Imposter doesn’t mind the rude comments.

Reserve Course Student:

Hajime Hinata[]

The Ultimate Imposter never held any close relationships with anyone on the Island in their short time there. However, upon getting their Free-Time Events, they become rather close to Hajime. They engage in various discussions, one being about fast food, with him, and later tells him a strange story about a person who was absolutely nothing and so, lived on as another person to be something which later turned out to be about themselves.

When Hajime tells them that he considers them a friend, they soften greatly, even changing the way they address Hajime (normally, Byakuya addresses everyone as omae which is a rude and somewhat egotistical method of saying 'you'; however, after this event, he briefly calls Hajime kimi, which is a friendlier, same-level method of saying 'you' before going back to omae at Hajime's request) in the original Japanese. Ultimate Imposter also says that one day, they will reveal their true story to Hajime, though they were murdered before they could.

During Island Mode, Ultimate Imposter explains their true identity to Hajime. After becoming friends with Hajime, they are convinced that they really do exist, and they decide that they don't want to lie anymore and wish to live as their true self. In Hajime's official relationship chart, the Ultimate Imposter considers Hajime a worthy partner.

Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair (English)


  • "My name is Byakuya Togami..."
  • "Move along! That's the only thing you skinny types are good at, it seems."
  • "Small dogs shouldn't bark so loud."
  • "There's no other choice but to believe...for now, that is."
  • "No matter how confused or upset you are, I don't mind. However, remember this... I don't know who in the world is orchestrating this but... We don't need to be cautious of those machines...or even of whoever's controlling them... More than anything, we must be cautious of... ...Ourselves. Being brought to a tropical island with complete strangers, and ordered to kill each other to escape... That creates fear in our minds, and the desire to escape that hopeless fear... ...is our worst enemy."

Chapter 1:

  • "Let me say this... Do not even think about copying what I do. This much food is beyond you lowly peasants... I'm the only one who could possibly eat this much food, for I've overcome the hardships of the past..."
  • "Why you... Do you have any idea how much money I spent sculpting my physique?"
  • "Since it's impossible to face our enemy as individuals under these circumstances, we must fight as a group... However, what we need to achieve that solidarity is not something as easygoing and optimistic as a ..."bond." What we need right now is a disciplined leadership, provided by an unmistakable leader!"
  • "Who is more fit to lead other than me? I am the Ultimate Affluent Progeny of the Togami household, destined to stand above all others."
  • "Don't worry, as long as I'm the leader, I won't let anyone become a victim. I will guide you all! That much, I promise."
  • "This island is full of mysteries that we can't begin to imagine..."
  • "You're right... It's mysteries on top of mysteries... However, since these mysteries are overlapping with one another, I doubt some no-name group is behind this..."
  • "So what we must do now is find out who our enemy is. If we do that, we'll be that much closer to a breakthrough."
  • "There's no time to think about something as foolish as killing each other. You must do what you have to do. Observe, speculate, recognize, comprehend. Even if it seems impossible...just persevere. But most importantly, follow my lead. I'll make sure to return you all to your normal lives. This is your leader's order. Understand?"
  • "Why would I get mad at something as petty as that...? She observed me directly and thought up a nickname. There's nothing dishonest about a name like that... Perhaps...I've always yearned for this. Though it may seem ironic for me to realize that in this particular situation..."
  • "I do not intend to dismiss your feelings. There was a time when I also thought the same way as you... But what would reckless killing accomplish? If you fail to get away with it, you know you'll be executed... Or perhaps...that's what you really want? If so... You'd only be killing yourself to run away from this predicament. That's what a child would do. Listen! So long as we're here, I will not let any of you die! I will not let any of you become a victim! And that goes for you too, Fuyuhiko. I won't let you die!"
  • "It's true my words would ring hollow if anyone else spoke them... But I am Byakuya Togami, and I am destined to bring these promises to fruition."
  • "Do what you will. However, remember what I said earlier. "I will not let any of you become a victim." That is the duty I have appointed to myself."
  • "Just so you all know... Do not think about unnecessary things. This is your leader's order."
  • "If I'm to fulfill the promise I made to not let anyone become a victim, I must be extra vigilant."
  • "Distrusting others...and being distrusted in turn... For a long time, my life has been a living hell. It was inevitable that I would end up this way. But in this kind of situation, my skeptical nature might be of good use. If we're to survive here, skepticism is necessary at all costs."
  • "When you're as special as me...you get special privileges."
  • "Our opponent is not someone we can just fight. Rather, it's better if we use our heads and think of a plan..."

Chapter 5:

  • "~|~|d&#wGuidewyou-p^l??u?`+`Fate_jofttheTogamiClan2389" (Byakuya's cottage post-fifth trial)
  • "Believe that hope lies beyond this point! That is your leader's order!"

Free Time Events:

  • "Be grateful this is a tropical island. If you were somewhere less hospitable, you'd freeze to death."
  • "Hmph, how foolish. Do you really think I'd get mad about something like that? A person like me has a responsibility to watch over you weaklings. Besides... as long as I'm here, it doesn't matter what your talent is. As long as Byakuya Togami is in charge, you will all know peace."
  • "The Togami Corporation is famous worldwide, but it will grow even more rapidly under my command... You should feel lucky that someone as talented as me is here. Just believe in me. If you do, everything will turn out fine."
  • "Just make sure you don't get in my way. A commoner should know their place and stay put. ... However... if there is anything troubling you, I don't mind if you rely on me."
  • "The chicken in my hands... is far tastier than the beef inside the freezer... It's a German proverb... It means something inferior that's nearby is better than something good that's far away."
  • "The situation surrounding us and this island is even more complicated than I had thought. Even if it's just a commoner's assistance, it's better than having nobody at all..."
  • "Even if you don't have your memories, you're still you, right? You are able to live your own life. That is already enough. All you have to do is be yourself. As you stand before me, I... will believe in your potential."
  • "Hmph, I can tell just by looking at your face. You need my power, right? As a member of the Togami family, I'm in a position to guide weaklings."
  • "If l lived like a beast, I would not be dissatisfied living on this island. However... I am a creature of intellect. I'm a modern person who lives in a new era."
  • "You always find the same things waiting for you wherever you go. You'll never know what a relief that truly is... For someone like you who has lived a fortunate life... You'll never understand."
  • "If... if by chance everything that's happening here is resolved safely... There's something I would like to tell you. I no longer want to... lie anymore... Not to anyone... Not to anything... not even to myself. I want to live as myself, the person standing before you right now. I've never told anyone this before, but... I want you to hear what I need to say."

Island Mode:

  • "It could contain a puzzle, an unsolvable mystery, or even nothing at all. Despite that, as long as I'm Byakuya Togami, I cannot ignore the uncertainty standing before us... That...is what I believe. If you notice anything too, don't keep it to yourself. Tell me."
  • "I may not be satisfied with our current situation, but if this really is just a school trip... Then it would be foolish of me to not spend my time as I see fit."
  • "Tch... Have you forgotten that I'm Byakuya Togami...? Hajime...don't tell me you're...testing me...?"
  • "If you want to have a pointless conversation, find someone pointless to have it with."
  • "Meat is certainly superior, but since we're on an uninhabited island, we must not ignore fish either... What fish can we catch? How can we make it delicious? As the heir to the Togami family, I must find out! You should be thankful that you get to help me with this triumph of mine. Now then, let's begin!"
  • "I don't mind either way, as long as we eat the appropriate food for this location! Don't dawdle! Immediately go to your post!"
  • "Don't tell me you're so childish that you fall asleep after opening a book? Do you really think something like that will ever put us on equal footing?"
  • "How can you be bored in the presence of all these books...? I don't know what to even say to you... What in the world did you come here to do then...?"
  • "Libraries are truly the best. Noisy people typically don't come here."
  • "...How foolish. I don't understand why you would go to the trouble of watching a comedy just so you could laugh. If you want to laugh so badly, just stare your reflection in the mirror."
  • "It feels extremely awkward and unsatisfying for two men to come to an amusement park together... In the end, a commoner like you couldn't endure that feeling..."
  • "Nevertheless, you're with me. Even if you make a mistake, you won't make a fool of yourself."
  • "No matter what surprises await us, don't expect me to cower in fear!"
  • "Well... Even if it's a simple, child-like curiosity it's better than having no curiosity at all..."
  • "I see... Though it may not be the truth, this is the path I've willingly chosen. I might not even be able to reach my destination unless I'm on this path..."
  • "So you're going to give up without even trying? Hmph... A loser will always be a loser. All they can do is crawl around with the rest of their kind."
  • "Hmph, only a commoner would think something so shortsighted. Nobody exists who could imitate this Byakuya Togami. Only a coward would use a body double. No matter who my opponent is, I would never run or hide."
  • "...Thank you, Hajime. Thank you for making my existence absolute. I mean it..."

Ultimate Talent Development Plan:

  • "Even if it seems impossible...just persevere."
  • "I will guide you all! That much, I promise."
  • "If you care so little for your talent, then it may be best your life didn't revolve around it."
  • "To not understand the importance of fat... We will never see eye-to-eye, Byakuya Togami."
  • "When you've given the chance to eat to your heart's content, you must make the most of it!"
  • "My motives are not so impure, but... Just remember this...I will be the one who stands triumphant."
  • "We may both be large, but where I have fat, your body is covered in meat. But don't forget! It's fine to rely on muscles, but in the end, fat is most important."
  • "Taka...don't worry about the baton. It is my duty to lead this team to victory. Any failure on your part is simply my failure as a leader. I won't have you blaming yourself."
  • "You're proud to be yourself, right? Then stand tall and hold your head high."
  • "It's the duty of those on top to make sure those they lead are taken care of."
  • "No matter my appearance, it does not change the fact that I am their classmate. That's what I believe..."
  • "You should cherish the day you were born."
  • "Even if you change your appearance, your talent—your self—will remain."

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

Episode 02:

  • "Well, people like us don't need to group together, anyway. If you have talent, your future is peachy. We're a bunch of elite kids, gathered from across Japan, with that motto. If we just graduate, we're set for life. We have no trials we need to overcome by uniting. No reason to make friends, either." (to Chiaki)

Episode 05:

  • "I wouldn't dig through his browser history, but you can't beat Hanamura's cooking. People flake out and let you down, but carbs are always there."
  • "It's not easy being talented."
  • "But it's pointless if you die before you can save anyone else."
  • "This is no time for hesitation."
  • "I have no name. No family register, no relatives, nothing. The only thing I have is my talent as an impostor. Using that, I've lived my days in the guise of others."
  • "Mitarai, who wanted to shut himself away to make anime. I, who wanted to take his place. Our interests were one and the same."
  • "That isn't necessary. I trust my classmates." (to Mikan)
  • "As of tomorrow, we'll be upperclassmen. Have more confidence." (to Mikan)

Episode 09:

  • "I'll go, too. Because I'm your classmate, as well."
  • "For his sake, I don't have the option of just sitting here."
  • "When you say that, I get the strange sense you're right."

Episode 11:

  • "From now on, I can be anyone I want! I could even become president!"

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

  • "You were wrong. But we're with you on that. We were all wrong."


  • In their Free Time Events, the Ultimate Imposter implies that the reason they chose to put on so much weight was in order to ensure survival should they ever have to withstand extreme cold.
  • Like Junko and Izuru, the Imposter has no listed likes or dislikes. This may be due to their background where they have nothing that pertains to their true identity.
  • Their title was translated as the Ultimate Swindler instead of Ultimate Imposter in the PC version of the English localization of the second game's ending credits, despite the fact that they were referred to as Imposter earlier in the game.
  • In Danganronpa 3: The End of Hope's Peak High School, the voice actor portraying both Ryotas, Kanata Hongō, also portrayed Makoto Naegi in Danganronpa: Kibō no Gakuen to Zetsubō no Kōkōsei THE STAGE (2014).
