The individuality of Junko Enoshima
As a young fashionista, Junko Enoshima is referred to as just “not phony”, excited and charismatic to try new things. During her initial appearances, she comes throughout cranky and also slightly air-headed. In the official artbook, she is called a person who “trickles with dissatisfaction the minute she opens her mouth” and also often tends to be in difficulties with her schoolmates. She is additionally stated to be a little bit as well talkative with an extremely carefree perspective.
Junko Enoshima’s genuine individuality, exposed at the verdict of the Killing School Life, is notably various: passive as well as quickly burnt out to an unhealthy as well as abnormal degree. As a result of this, her behavior and also quirks tended to be unsteady and extremely erratic in her independent layout; maintaining one “appearance” for too lengthy tires her, which creates her to typically switch between different identities. She is qualified of preserving one personality for prolonged periods when needed, such as when she was looking after the pupils through Monokuma. Junko Enoshima’s “moods” consisted of (yet were not limited to) her Monokuma identity, sickening cuteness, severe depression, professional elegance, boisterous unrefinement, eerie stoicism, as well as swaggering prevalence. She switched over between “state of minds” regularly, typically copying other trainees’ expressions, which made for a highly unsettling discussion with the survivors. While going into the Hope’s Peak Academy as one of Class 78’s students, she typically spoke as if telling a story, listing her thoughts in a notebook.
Above all, Junko Enoshima was deeply consumed with despair, having found anguish to be one of the most (and also potentially the only) enjoyable emotions for her, whether it be bringing upon anguish unto others, or dealing with misery completely. This made her incredibly harmful, as she desired to make the whole world feel absolute despair. Nonetheless, this also frequently proved to be her biggest weak point, as she gave her opponents a “fair” possibility to defeat her to make their misery all the higher if they stop working, and happily invited her very own misery if her strategies stopped working.
Both Junko Enoshima herself as well as the game’s designers have validated that she has no reason to do things she does apart from despair itself, which makes her all a lot more dangerous and not able to be reasoned with. It is hinted at in the anime that her analytical talent was what caused her to turn to despair, and that Hope’s Peak was her first target because they see talent as hope, and use that talent for their benefit, which drove Junko Enoshima to take the talent they loved so much and use it for evil, which shows her in a more understandable light. It’s also shown that under her amnesiac state, Junko Enoshima doesn’t show a thirst for despair or particularly solid disgust for boredom, indicating that her constant case of forgetfulness had spared her from embracing despair once again. Nevertheless, the return of her memories changed her to her former ways.
As the mastermind and leader of Ultimate Despair, Junko Enoshima was shown to be highly intelligent, cunning, somewhat impulsive, extremely manipulative, violent, and cruel without remorse. She often manipulated people into doing bad things instead of directly doing them herself and then had a habit of blaming these manipulated people and claiming it wasn’t her fault, as a part of proving her point that despair exists in everyone and that hope will naturally lose to that despair. While she is very skilled, Junko Enoshima can also lie and cheat to further her own goals, even if it’s hypocritical and goes against her beliefs.
Despite that she can be abusive and cruel to some, Junko Enoshima is capable of really feeling love for those she’s close with, nonetheless, because of how much anguish has driven her, she eliminates them anyways to trigger herself to feel huge amounts of despair.
According to Kodaka as well as Junko Enoshima’s voice actress, her character in Despair Arc is an extra natural version of her, closer to her real self and even more neutral, before she began altering her individualities regularly. This seems to indicate that her habits in the first game are an outcome of decreasing mental health as well as deeper penetrating misery, clarifying her even more apathetic and jaded personality. This additionally suggests that also the Tragedy was beginning to bore her, as the seemingly disorderly event went simply as she intended.
