Nagito Komeda, the Ultimate Lucky Student, relied on the power of luck to influence the outcomes of decisions in his favor. Unlike other Ultimate abilities, which rely on their active use, the Ultimate Lucky Student is naturally lucky. 

Their innate luck allows them to manifest their Ultimate ability passively, without any conscious effort. It also cannot be stopped by another ability, as luck is not something that can be controlled. Ultimate Lucky Student ability is extremely potent when used correctly.

Mikan provides an accurate autopsy report, including information on the corpse’s state, details on injuries, the cause of death, and the time of death. Furthermore, she sometimes gives (often unwanted) health advice to others. She also appears to be more confident while she is nursing.

Unlike most students, she likes being on Jabberwock Island, because her classmates acknowledge her and her talent makes her useful.

As talented as she is, Mikan’s abilities as a nurse have limits; she doubted she could keep Fuyuhiko Kuzuryu alive due to the injuries he sustained during Peko Pekoyama’s execution, One Woman Army. Nonetheless, her abilities are highly effective, as she was able to successfully revive Kyoko Kirigiri after the Final Killing Game, where she was near-death after using Seiko Kimura’s medicine to survive her Code Poisoning.

12. Ibuki Moda

13. Sakura Ogami

· Age: 19

· Height: 6’3

· Birthday: September 13

The Ultimate Martial Artist was an ability that rivaled Monokuma. Like the Ultimate Detective, the Ultimate Martial Artist drove Monokuma into a corner. Sakura Ogami, the holder of the Ultimate Martial Artist title and the Strongest Human alive title, was shown to fight evenly against Monokuma during the events of Danganronpa: Happy Trigger Havoc.

One glaring weakness was that Sakura was revealed to have been working with Monokuma against her will. However, this weakness is more so a weakness of the character rather than the Ultimate Martial Artist ability itself.

As an ability, the Ultimate Martial Artist has shown no real weakness. Rivaled in power only by Monokuma, the Ultimate Martial Artist was able to stand up even after sustaining multiple head injuries.

14. Ryota Mitarai

· Age: 22

· Ability: Ultimate Animator

Ryota is able to use the Ultimate Animator’s power to create a hope-inducing video that impacts the entire world. It is one of the important Ultimate abilities in Danganronpa, the Ultimate Animator could not only brainwash people but also permanently alter their personalities. 

Unlike the Ultimate Confectioner, the Ultimate Animator’s brainwashing abilities would not wear off after a certain amount of time. Ryota Mitarai, one of the Ultimate Animator’s users, was shown using his abilities to show a video that brainwashed an entire army.

The Ultimate Animator was given no weakness, as its videos could not be resisted by anyone and were only undone when the Ultimate Animator willingly stopped the effects. The only exception to this is the Neo World Program, which undid the effects of the despair-inducing video that created the Ultimate Despairs.

However, the Neo World Program took the power of three Ultimates to create, and even then, it took weeks to undo the effects of the despair-inducing video.

15. Ruruka Ando

· Age: 23

· Height: 5’4

· Birthday: November 20

· Ability: Ultimate Confectioner

At first, it seems that the Ultimate Confectioner is a weak talent. Ruruka Ando, the only known holder of the Ultimate Confectioner ability, was able to create delicious sweets that provide several small health benefits, despite being sweets. Beyond that, the Ultimate Confectioner is unable to do anything more. Without much going for it, the Ultimate Confectioner appeared to be a weak talent. 

However, it was later revealed that the Ultimate Confectioner’s sweets could brainwash people. By eating the sweets, the Ultimate Blacksmith had been brainwashed for his entire life. The potency of the Ultimate Confectioner’s brainwashing sweets was further shown when the Ultimate Boxer eats one and immediately falls under its effects.

Aside from Ruruka being constantly protected by the Ultimate Blacksmith, the Ultimate Confectioner ability’s only weakness was getting others to eat the sweets, to begin with.

16. Aoi Asahina

· Age: 20

· Height: 5’3

· Birthday: April 24

· Ability: Ultimate Swimming Pro

Due to her fitness and athleticism, Aoi is capable of holding her own in a fight if necessary, as was shown when she engaged in a fight with Juzo Sakakura. She was able to dodge most of his attacks despite being unarmed, and even pinned his weapon to the ground. 

She is also much stronger than her small frame suggests, able to run at top speed for long periods while carrying the 52kg weight of Makoto Naegi on her back during the Final Killing Game. She was also able to move a large piece of furniture that both Makoto and Ryota Mitarai could not budge even with their combined strength.

Aoi was also able to build up her resistance to sickness, and practicing the self-healing technique known as Kanpur masatsu.

17. Kirumi Tojo

· Age: 20

· Height: 5’9

· Birthday: May 10

· Ability: Ultimate Maid

This ability was immediately presented as powerful as it allowed Kirumi to do anything asked of her by the other Ultimates. Kirumi goes as far as to bring up the time she was requested to destroy an entire nation. The Ultimate Maid ability gives Kirumi quick decision-making abilities as well as the power to multitask efficiently. Ultimate Maid could grant any request, no matter how grand or lavish. 

As asked by the Prime Minister of Japan to make the country great again, the Ultimate Maid was able to grant that request and even served as the de facto Prime Minister, until she was forced into the killing game. Other people that the Ultimate Maid served in the past also included those with great influence in politics and finance.

The Ultimate Maid was shown to have the weakness of only accepting tasks that can be completed. However, there has been no evidence of the Ultimate Maid rejecting a task because of its difficulty. The Ultimate Maid has only been shown to reject tasks that are unethical or cause unfair grief for others.

The greatest weakness of the Ultimate Maid is a reduced lack of free will, as even having a conversation with Kirumi was impossible without it being a request.

18. Gundham Tanaka

20. Akane Owari

· Age: 20

· Height: 5’9

· Birthday: July 15th

· Ability: Ultimate Gymnast

Akane was born with a natural talent as a gymnast. Her body builds, strength, agility, and endurance grew ever since she was a child. She often nimbly performed parkour on her home and her father who noticed this convinced her to join tournaments and competitions.
