Kaede Akamatsu (赤松 楓 Akamatsu Kaede) is a character from the Danganronpa franchise.

Character

Kaede is a character introduced in New Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony, as a student of the Ultimate Academy for Gifted Juveniles, and a participant of the Killing School Semester. She has the title of Ultimate Pianist. She acts as the first protagonist of the game.

Being motivated to end the killing game and escape with everyone else before the time limit of the first motive expires, she planned to kill the mastermind. Unknowingly to her, her attempt failed. Wanting to make up for, as she believed, killing Rantaro Amami, she decided not to use the First Blood Perk to leave without a Class Trial, and stay to catch the mastermind. However, due to lack of evidence at the time, her plan failed, resulting in Kaede being replaced by Shuichi Saihara as the protagonist upon being revealed as the culprit of the first case. The final case reveals that her plan actually failed and in reality the mastermind framed her for being the killer in their place.

With another reveal of the final chapter, it's unknown exactly how much of Kaede's backstory was fabricated.
