Asukasei ended up being the assumed sole survivor after killing Suzuko with a handgun, but Izuru approached him and told him he couldn't beat him. Asukasei didn't listen and charged at Izuru with a chainsaw; in turn, Izuru pushed Asukasei and sent him flying backwards against a window.
The chainsaw fell in front of Asukasei, and he fell on it, decapitating him. Before Asukasei died, he managed to fire a shot that grazed Izuru's right cheek. He was then ambushed by another council member, most likely Asukasei Hino, being blinded by glass shards in his eyes before eventually being killed by an unspecified female Student Council member, possibly Suzuko Kashiki, wielding a cleaver. Daiki's features are slightly more stylized than his fellow Student Council members, with a squarish face, greenish-gray hair, and very dark brown eyes that seem to have little to no sclerae.
He wears the standard uniform of Hope's Peak Academy. Daiki is shown to be worried about the killing game but still tries to calm everyone else down.

He also seems to be level-headed and logical; in the dub, he first tried to see if the remaining Student Council members could make a run for it, believing the odds of them all dying to be slim. Along with the rest of the student council, Daiki came to a classroom on the fifth floor of Hope's Peak Academy after being shown threatening videos by Junko Enoshima. When the Ultimate Fashionista tells them to kill each other, he and the rest of the council show extreme reluctance, even when the vice president, Kotomi Ikuta, was murdered in front of them by Mukuro Ikusaba.
She has blue-green eyes behind her thin white glasses, and she wears the standard uniform of Hope's Peak Academy. Karen cared for her mother deeply while being somewhat weak-willed or easily manipulated, as she was driven to start the Student Council Killing Game after she found out something bad happened to her mother. She loses her sanity during the killing game and she, unlike most of the other students, appears to turn very sadistic while murdering others. Karen was one of the student council members called by Junko to participate in her new killing game.
Karen was initially as reluctant as any of the council members, but she became the first to fall victim to Junko's "motivation"; when she looked in her file, she found a photograph showing something horrible happening to her mother. Karen later appeared in the hallways, covered in blood and wielding a chainsaw.

She eventually returned to the classroom where the carnage began, where she was killed by one of the other survivors - possibly Asukasei, as he was seen holding her chainsaw after becoming the apparent sole survivor of the killing game. Kiriko has violet eyes and light magenta hair, with part of the latter styled into a pair of small buns.
She also wears a red headband with a bow on top of her head. Kiriko is seen to be scared and quite silent during the beginning of the killing game, though still appearing relatively calm. Kiriko was summoned by Junko Enoshima late at night in Hope's Peak Academy's old school building along with the other members of the Student Council. It was revealed that she and the other members were lured by Mukuro Ikusaba and Junko by using a threatening video for each individual. From the beginning, Kiriko is shown to be scared and confused by the current situation that she faced.
Kotomi has yellow eyes and long red hair, with some strands flaring out rather dramatically. She wears a white headband and the standard uniform of Hope's Peak Academy. Kotomi appears to be quite impulsive and possibly short-tempered, as well as protective of her friends, as she quickly reacted with notable anger when the Student Council was threatened with a killing game.
When Mukuro announced they would kill each other, Kotomi angrily rejected the idea. Instead of a dress shirt and tie, he wore a grey hoodie under the standard Hope's Peak Academy blazer. He had several stuffed animals on his pockets; a yellow teddy bear in the left pocket of his blazer, a blue teddy bear in the right pocket, and a green dragon or dinosaur in the front pocket of his hoodie.
He showed an impulsive, aggressive streak when he attempted to murder Junko Enoshima and Mukuro Ikusaba to avenge Kotomi Ikuta's death, implying that he is extremely protective of his friends. Junko gathered all of the Student Council and Izuru Kamukura in the old school building in order to force them to kill each other. When Mukuro announced that they would begin killing each other, Kotomi opposed the idea and was murdered because of that.
He wears a necklace. He also wears a black jacket and suit with a blue shirt. He wears the standard Hope's Peak Uniform, with the jacket tied around his waist. He shows a somewhat aggressive demeanor, being quick to confront Ryota over his attempt to avenge Kotomi's death; additionally, he is one of the first students to grab a weapon once Karen Kisaragi begins the killing game. He kills them violently, only to break down crying in remorse immediately afterwards. He fled into the hallway and was pursued by Kiriko, forcing him to stab her in self-defense. As Kiriko bled out on the floor, he was horrified about what he had done, asking why she made him do that and confessing that he loved her, his words implying he never told her about his feelings.

Seemingly fueled by envious rage for the couple after what happened to Kiriko, he screamed at Tsubasa to shut up before driving his spear through her by hitting it with Kiriko's shovel. He began crying uncontrollably after Tsubasa expired, unaware that Karen was approaching behind him with a chainsaw.
She proceeded to kill him offscreen. She has short brown hair and bright blue eyes. She wears the standard uniform of Hope's Peak Academy but without the blazer and with a red ribbon instead of a tie. She also has slightly darker skin than her fellow members. She appears to have a kind personality, as her expressions during the beginning of the killing game are especially compassionate and worried for other people, often holding her hands over her mouth.
Supposedly, she later killed during the killing game, but she was shown to be very fearful and regretful. Suzuko, along with the other thirteen members of the Student Council were summoned in Hope's Peak Academy's old school building by Junko Enoshima late at night.
During the killing game, Suzuko possibly killed Daiki Kubo using a cleaver after he was blinded. At the end, she was murdered by Asukasei Hino after begging him to spare her, being shot in the throat while wielding a taser.
