Monokuma (monochrome bear)

Monobear/Monokuma (モノクマ Monokuma) is a strange teddy bear who proclaims himself to be the principal of Hope's Peak Academyand initiates a life of mutual killing among the students, being the manipulator for everyone to experience the dog-eat-dog world and despair within their hearts (except optimistic students like Makoto Naegi's hope are immune to his despair plan). He appears in bothDangan Ronpa: Academy of Hope and High School Students of Despair and its sequel, Super Dangan Ronpa 2: Farewell Despair Academy.

Prior to the series, this cunning and vile being is actually a model animatronic bear used as an avatar to interact with the students bythe mastermind. There are seemingly infinite copies of Monokuma, and he seems to have the ability to teleport also everywhere within the academy compounds. He is Usami's "brother".
