    Gonta Gokuhara is a character featured in Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony and a participant of the Killing School Semester. His title was the Ultimate Entomologist.

    Why He Rocks

    1. In spite of his height and intimidating appearance, he's one of the nicest and gentlest students in the entire game.
    2. Despite being (believe it or not) the youngest of the cast, he acts like a big brother figure towards all of his fellow students, and always tries to protect them.
    3. Even in the midst of a killing game, his main goal is still to be a gentleman. Goes to show how much of a sweetheart he really is.
    4. During the second trial, he offers to be killed in the place of Kirumi Tojo, because he feels that she has more to offer the world than he does, but Kaito Momota talks him down from doing so and calls Kirumi out on trying to manipulate everyone.
    5. In stark contrast to the other students of Danganronpa games who stood out as the hulking muscles of the classes (not that they're bad characters, they're not), he stands out as the first one not to having a fighting talent, but rather he goes as the Ultimate Entomologist, which was a nice change of the normal formula.
    6. Speaking of his talent, he's incredibly protective and friendly towards bugs. And his love for insects is absolutely adorable and pretty sweet.
    7. Even though he doesn't remember killing Miu (due to having gotten two wires he was supposed to plug into his virtual headset before entering the virtual world mixed up) he goes to his execution bravely, believing he deserves his fate for killing a classmate he wanted to protect. He doesn't even struggle when he's tied to a post and about to be impaled.
    8. While his murder of Miu was shocking, it can be also be seen as an event that added depth to his character. Throughout the game, he was portrayed as this perfect, innocent, childlike boy who aspired to be a gentleman above everything, which can be seen as annoying or even shallow. But after he saw the state of the outside world via a Flashback Light, he was so horrified, that he decided it would be better to have the other students die than have them see what the outside world had become. This idea of protecting his peers is rather twisted, but shows he's much more complex than he's given credit for. As throughout the game, he was constantly lamenting on how he couldn't save his classmates when they die, but now that an opportunity to be a use to them (sparing them from finding out that the outside world was just as bad as the Killing Game and that all the deaths that took place have all basically been for nothing), he took it, thinking it would mean he would finally be use to the friends he's been wanting to protect so much.

    Bad Qualities

    1. He's incredibly crazy over bugs, and also extremely gullible, two things that, when combined, can have a not-so-pretty outcome. One such example was after Kokichi lied to him about everybody hating bugs, he forcibly brought everybody he could into his Entomology Lab and released all of the insects to prove how great insects are.
    2. Speaking of his gullibility, he immediately obeys Kokichi when the latter tells him to throw K1-B0 at the piranha tank Ryoma was killed in, saying it would be easier to break it than draining it by hand (though to be fair, Tenko also participated). Worse, ended up being manipulated by Kokichi into killing Miu in the virtual world in chapter 4. It's made even more depressing when he's sentenced to execution, and due to him not remembering killing her after he left the virtual world. He's horrified when he finds out and simply goes along with his execution.
    3. He always speaks in third person, which can get a bit annoying after a while.

    Trivia

    • Similar to Gundham Tanaka, Gonta is rumored to be capable of speaking with animals, although Gonta's ability is supposedly much better, as he was raised by wild animals. In the non-canon Ultimate Talent Development Plan, they bond over their shared ability to talk to animals.
    • Other characters who also speak in third person within the series besides Gonta are Ibuki Mioda, Monaca Towa, Tenko, and Angie (the latter two in Japanese only).
    • Japanese gaming magazine Dengeki from April 27th, 2017 to May 22nd, 2017 held two popularity polls, one that was voted electronically and the other via post cards. Gonta was voted the 3rd most popular student in the electronic poll, and 14th through post cards.
