Junko Enoshima is a character featured in Dangan Ronpa: Academy of Hope and High School Students of Despair as well as its sequel Super Dangan Ronpa 2: Goodbye, Despair Academy. She is the main villain and has the title Super High-School Level Fashion Girl. She is also the founder of Super High-School Level Despair. She is the sister of Mukuro Ikusaba and had an alternate identity known as Ryouko Otonashi.
Enoshima is a popular model, and has a tall girly figure. She has blue eyes and long, thick, strawberry blonde hair tied in two ponytails, each with Monokuma hair clips. She wears a black jacket over a white dress shirt loosely enough to expose some of her bra, and has many accessories including a loose black and white tie and red bow. Enoshima also wears a red miniskirt and lace up boots. She has long fake red nails. Her appearance and personality will often shift in sync with one another, as they are interdependent.
A young woman who took the country by storm with her extravagant tastes. Enoshima wanted to be a model ever since she was a child, but is also eager to try new things. She used to be homeless in a very harsh environment. Enoshima's personality and mannerisms tend to be very erratic and unstable. Enoshima often switches 'moods' regularly which can go between angry, violent, happy and sad at random times. Enoshima is obsessed with despair and finds it to be one of the most enjoyable emotions of all time.
- Enoshima is voiced by Megumi Toyoguchi, who has also been known to voice Yukari Takeba from Persona 3.
- Her voice changes several times throughout the final school trial in order to represent her changing personalities.
- One of her poses is the same of Dio Brando from Jojo's Bizarre Adventures; she also says his catchphrase, "Useless, useless, useless", during a Machinegun Talk Battle.
- At the very last part of her execution, Enoshima assumes a puzzled expression as the crusher slows down and seemingly glitches. General fan consent is that this was purposefully done to deny her despair (although it actually was extended).
- As a prime antagonist of the series, Enoshima appears in both games and both novels (including her fake identity as Ryouko Otonashi).
