Toko Fukawa (腐川 冬子), is a student in Hope's Peak Academy's Class 78th, and a participant of the Killing School Life featured in Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc. Her title is the Ultimate Writing Prodigy (超高校級の「文学少女」 lit. Super High School Level Literary Girl).
Why She Rocks Now
- She has a great talent. As the Ultimate Writing Prodigy, she possesses extreme writing skills. The first time she even knew that she had such a knack for writing was when one of her teachers in elementary school found her love letter and later supported her to keep writing and expand her knowledge about literature.
- She isn't cynical and pessimistic for no reason. Her free time events reveal that she has been ditched in middle school by her date (because he was only going out with her due to losing a bet with a friend) and ridiculed in elementary school for writing a heartfelt love letter to her best friend, who instead pinned it on the school bulletin board. It doubles as the reason why she started writing in the first place (a teacher thought her style was pretty unique). It goes a long way in explaining how the incredibly cruel bullying she endured (which included her classmates accusing her of stealing another student's lunch and tying her to the jungle gym with a hose) turned her as cynical and grumpy as she is in the mains series.
- Her split personality, Genocide Jack (Genocider Sho/Syo in the original Japanese version) is very hammy, energetic, and always completely steals every scene she's in with her completely off-the-wall acting.
- Another Episode: Ultra Despair Girls has her gain a much bigger amount of character focus, development, and backstory exploration, going from an annoying cynic to a loyal friend. In the beginning of the story, she made a deal with Nagito Komaeda to save Byakuya Togami from the Warriors of Hope, which involved bringing Komaru Naegi to their HQ. Because of this, Toko ended up tagging along with Komaru throughout the majority of the game. And as it goes on, the two begin to form a friendship. Toko provides Komaru with emotional support and entails the latter on her past. As the two learn more and more about each other, and while Toko does occasionally tease Komaru, you can tell how much she obviously cares for her. To the point that she's willing to break her promise to Byakuya of never letting Genocide Jack take over again in order to help Komaru escape Towa City. But by the end, she's willing to protect and escape with them both, her crush, and her best friend.
- Her character design is, while simple, incredibly pretty, and overall just really nice to look at.
- She started off as a cynical jackass who was always assuming the worst in everything.
- Her crush on Byakuya can get a bit creepy at times.
- In one of her free time events, she made a reference to a famous Japanese filmmaker, Seijun Suzuki and his three masterpieces: Tokyo Drifter, Fighting Elegy and Branded to Kill.
- It is implied that Toko does not take a lot of showers often. In Danganronpa 3, she even appears to be afraid of bathing. Her pet stink bug obviously doesn't help the matter.
- Toko suffers from a pathological fear of the dark, blood, and ghosts.
- It's revealed during Toko's free time events that after Makoto suggested to her to write a novel "from her heart", she immediately finished it as an I-Novel. According to Makoto, Toko's I-Novel is the best writing he has ever read, and it will be a shocking masterpiece because of its super dark story that will change the face of I-Novels.
- Toko is the only character so far to play a major role in two games.
