|~ Monaca Towa in Danganronpa Another Episode: Ultra Despair Girls.|
Monaca Towa is one of the two central antagonists (along with Monokuma) of the Danganronpa franchise.
She serves as the main antagonist of Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc, Super Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair Academy, Danganronpa: Zero, and of Danganronpa Another Episode: Ultra Despair Girls, a minor antagonist in Despair Arc. and a major antagonist in Future Arc. She is the actual leader of the Warriors of Hope. Amongst the Warriors of Hope she has the rank of "Mage", also creating a robotic bear called "Kurokuma".
She is voiced by Aya Hirano in Japanese (who also voiced Hannah Anafeloz in Kuroshitsuji II, Misa Amane in Death Note, Miu Asakura in Bungaku Shoujo, and Fallen Angel Nanael in Queen's Blade) and Cristina Valenzuela in English (who also voiced Elsa Granhiert in Re:Zero − Starting Life in Another World, Flame Emperor in Fire Emblem: Three Houses, Homura Akemi in Puella Magi Madoka Magica, Nightmare Ladybug in Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug & Cat Noir, Risky Boots in Shantae, and Rei Hōōmaru in Kill La Kill).
Monaca has short green hair and green eyes. In her hair she wears a red ribbon with a bow. She wears a knee-length black dress. She uses an electric wheelchair due to her incapacitated legs. Later in the story it is revealed that she can actually walk and was only faking her incapability to walk. When she's out the wheelchair the back of her dress has showed to have a decal of a pelvis and spine. She also wears white shoes with black knee highs.
Monaca appears to be a cheerful, kind, caring, charming and empathetic person. However, it is shown that she is actually an amoral, deranged, sociopath and master manipulator. By being extremely polite and respectful, cutesy and by the fact that others pity her for her being in a wheelchair, she is able to easily manipulate the other Warriors of Hope, even resorting to sexual extortion to do so. She is very intelligent for her age and is specialized in robotics.
She idolized Junko Enoshima seeing her as a big sister and an example. She dedicates her life to be more like Junko and continue her reign of despair.
Monaca was born as a bastard of Tokuichi Towa, president of Towa Group and was abandoned by her mother which Monaca despise. She was soon adopted by her father instead of sending her to the orphanage. However, she is been neglected by her adopted family and some instance of physical abuse by her father and half-brother, Haiji Towa. She soon faked her paraplegic nature in order to stop further abuse and manipulate people easy.
She attended Hope's Peak Elementary School and was part of the "troublemaker" class with Masaru, Jataro, Kotoko, and Nagisa. Together with her classmates, she planned a group suicide. However, Monaca never had plans to commit suicide in the first place, and she planned to let the others die as a joke. But the group suicide was stopped by Junko Enoshima, who took in the children and manipulated them by treating them with kindness and love.
So, Monaca helped Junko (knowing perfectly well that Junko was trying to use her) to mass-produce Monokumas using her position as a representative of the Towa Group. She tricked her father and the other adults in order to produce the Monokumas, telling them that she wanted to create futuristic robots that could rescue humans during disasters and save lives. However, Haiji Towa explains that he and his father were not fooled by Monaca: Due to Monaca's genius and their separation from the family, they decided to give her permission to do whatever she wanted as soon as she managed to bring benefits to the company, and they did not decide to investigate too much about their plans.
Monaca would use these robots in The Biggest, Most Awful, Most Tragic Event in Human History as killer robots while also creating helmets shaped like the head of a monokuma to mentally control her guests, who would be children. When her father discovered this, he tried to stop her but she blackmailed him that if he did so, everyone would know that his company had helped Junko Enoshima. With this Monaca would make her father create as many monokumas as weapons to fight them, so the Towa group was seen as heroes by other people but at the same time was allied with The Ultimate Despair. with this the group would gain money, honor and protection.
After Junko's death, Tokuichi, Monaca's father, would surrender to the Future Foundation, to later be killed by some Monokuma sent by Monaca. After this she would manipulate her friends into making an adult genocide to follow Junko's last wishes, saying that the adults had killed Junko. And the way they would kill the adults would be in a game created by Monaca called "Demon hunting" where they would hunt down the adults they caught by putting a bracelet on them that would kill them if they tried to escape. They also caught Nagito Komaeda and made him their servant although he would secretly help Monaca with her true intentions.
