Komaru Naegi is one of the protagonists and a participant of Demon Hunting featured in Danganronpa Another Episode: Ultra Despair Girls due to her being the closest person to her older brother Makoto Naegi. Because she is considered a "Demon" by the Warriors of Hope, she is given the name Slowpokemaru. Prior to the Tragedy, Komaru had a cheerful and optimistic personality, somewhat similar to her brother. She loved Makoto, telling her brother to do his best while enrolled at Hope's Peak Academy. As of Danganronpa Another Episode, Komaru began as a somewhat hypersensitive and quite cowardly character. She wavers between hope and despair as a result of her forced imprisonment. She doesn't want to have strong hope, because she believes it will be lost eventually, leading to worse despair. She has low self-esteem, considering herself boring, ordinary and weak. After being encouraged by Toko Fukawa, she gained a desire to at least try to escape again. While she finds escaping hard and fighting even harder, she is willing to fight off hordes of Monokuma Unit robots as she tries to survive the world's current catastrophe and find her missing family.
