|The Persona Protagonists|
|Joel saving Ellie from the Fireflies|
Mankind is a animalistic and falls to it’s most basest urges and we should all give up everything is irrelevant other than the thrill of the moment. These are the thoughts of the main antagonist of Danganronpa , Junko Enoshima. Junko for all intents and purposes is antiathroitarian as well as a nihilist to the most extreme levels. Her plan was to over throw the world government by pointing out the disparity of classes between the students of her school, Hope's Peak Acadamy and the rest of the world. In the school's eyes everyone and thing is expendable for a brighter future. Even the students they teach are not safe from the depravity of the school's experiments. Praying on the fears and frustrations of the everyday people, as well as using some contacts she is able to send the world spiraling out of control and into anarchy before anyone could see it coming. She is willing to burn the world as we know it just to satisfy her horrifying lust for despair. Her crowning achievement of despair is to make the world witness the brutal murders of the students of Hope's Peak Acadamy and snuff out the hope themselves for greedy motivations. But she is not alone in this extremist set of ideologies as her rival Nagito Komaeda has a unordinary love for hope to the point of causing even more crushing despair to make as he calls it “A more brighter hope.”. Nagito and Junko are merely two sides of the same coin unwilling to acknowledge the value of human life just to get their rocks off.
