Who Is The Villain In Deadman Wonderland

Jewish Manga art - La bellezza del rigore al museo EbraicoThis is a list of fictional characters appearing in the Japanese manga series Deadman Wonderland as well as its anime adaptation. Ganta Igarashi (五十嵐 丸太, Igarashi Ganta) / Woodpecker is the main protagonist of the story. He is a seemingly harmless, ordinary middle school boy until the Wretched Egg slaughters his entire class, yet spares him and infuses him with a shard of red crystal. Posing as Ganta's appointed lawyer, Tsunenaga Tamaki rigs evidence at his trial to make it look like he murdered his classmates on a whim. Ganta is sentenced to death at Deadman Wonderland. Initially confused and frightened, Ganta resolves to endure the heinous prison so he can prove his innocence and avenge his friends by tracking down and confronting their murderer, the Wretched Egg, whom Ganta refers to as the 'Red Man'. During his stay, Ganta meets a mysterious girl named Shiro and is perplexed that she seems to know him, but eventually begins to remember her as a childhood friend. While the extent of his feelings for her are unclear in the anime, he later falls in love with her in the manga. Ganta learns that the crystal implanted into his chest by the Wretched Egg has turned him into a "Deadman" empowered with a Branch of Sin, which is later christened the Ganta Gun by Senji. This Branch of Sin enables Ganta to gather variable quantities of his blood in the palm of his hand and shoot them like bullets.

Eventually, the truth about Deadman Wonderland is made public.

While advantageous as a long-range attack, due to Ganta's small size, this strategy puts him at risk of experiencing symptoms of excessive blood loss. Ganta later joins up with the Scar Chain and participates in their attempt to break out of Deadman Wonderland and expose the prison's illegal actions, but chooses to remain behind to settle his score with the Wretched Egg. Shortly after these events, learning that Shiro is the Wretched Egg, Ganta's power began to change, evident by a strange tattoo-like mark radiating out from the crystal in his chest. His Ganta Gun now emits a much more powerful blast than before, though it is much less controllable and causes him physical pain. Following the defeat of Genkaku, Ganta ends up in solitary confinement for withholding information about the escape of the surviving Scar Chain members. Eventually, the truth about Deadman Wonderland is made public. When Deadman Wonderland is shut down, Ganta is exonerated of the false charges put upon him at his retrial. With nowhere else to go after his name is cleared, Ganta ended up in Minori Garden orphanage which is run by nuns. He then joins forces with the former prison's Chief Guard Makina, Senji, and several other Deadmen, and return to the prison to locate and stop Shiro (who has now been completely "consumed" by her Wretched Egg persona).

He also learns from Shiro that it also has the power to kill her. She also reveals that he was the one originally selected to be experimented on, but his mother chose to spare him, and experimented on Shiro instead. This led to her transformation into the "Wretched Egg". The reason she killed his classmates and implanted the gem in him is that she wants to be killed by the one she has always loved. Upon learning of Shiro's true self and intentions, he agrees to kill her, leading to their final confrontation. In the final battle, the crystals within Ganta and Shiro explode upon overusing their powers. Sometime later, Ganta visits a comatose Shiro in the hospital and later reminisces about his past with Shiro and his mother. When Ganta asks Shiro if she wants to hear how the lullaby his mother wrote for her goes on, Shiro wakes up with a smile. Shiro (シロ) / Wretched Egg is a mysterious albino girl and Hagire Rinichirō's test subject that Ganta encountered during his first days as an inmate: Ganta mistook her for his dead friend Mimi due to Shiro resembling her. Clothed only in a skin-tight bodysuit (though her heels and toes stick out in the foot areas) and large gloves which help conceal her heavily scarred skin, Shiro stands out among the other prisoners due to her bizarre appearance and mannerisms.

It is also apparent that she does not have a prison number, unlike the rest. To Ganta, Shiro's manner of speaking and behavior remind him of a small child, even though Shiro is in fact a year older than him. However, Shiro possesses inhuman physical abilities and has an intimate knowledge of the prison, having lived there most of her life. From the beginning of the story it is made clear that, as children, Shiro and Ganta were close friends with the latter having no memories of his childhood, which greatly saddens and annoys Shiro. Shiro was infected with a mysterious virus that gave her abilities which was being researched by Ganta's mother Sorae Igarashi. Over the next several years, Shiro was subjected to barbaric experiments, including being dismembered while awake, all in an effort to force her body and the virus inside it to "evolve" into the first Deadman.

The trauma of this torturous treatment caused Shiro to develop a homicidal, maniacal split personality that is labeled as the Wretched Egg. This separate personality induced by her dissociative identity disorder protects Shiro, often at the cost of others. Unaware of his target's true nature, Ganta knows her as the "Red Man" due to the heavy masculine full body clothing she wears that was inspired by the Aceman character she and Ganta watched and played with as children. As the Wretched Egg, Shiro's personality changes into a murderous, smirking maniac capable of massacring whole squads of armed men with little effort and causing the earthquake in Tokyo. Soon after, Shiro is placed within Deadman Wonderland in comfortable quarters due to being the "source" of the Branches of Sin. The Mother Goose mainframe, Deadman Wonderland's supercomputer, plays a lullaby audible only to Shiro in order to repress the Wretched Egg and her murderous intents. Like Shiro, the Wretched Egg has feelings for Ganta, though hers border on lust: it was implied that she butchered Ganta's classmates so that he would be sent to Deadman Wonderland to be with her. Eventually, both the Shiro and the Wretched Egg personas fuse into her true self once the Mother Goose system's lullaby no longer represses her, and when she is finally alone with Ganta, she reveals the reason why she killed his classmates and implanted on him his Branch of Sin: because she wants to be killed by the only one she truly loved: Ganta. In the final battle, the crystals within Ganta and Shiro explode upon overusing their powers.

Some time later, Shiro was seen in a coma following the final battle and later awakens from it in the final scene. Rinichir Hagire (剥切, Hagire Rinichirō) is the main antagonist of the series. He is the one who created Deadman Wonderland and orchestrated the creation of Shiro's Wretched Egg persona in the experiments he conducted with Sorae Igarashi back when he was a doctor at a Medical Center. After the Great Tokyo earthquake, Hagire used the Branch of Sin of Chan and En to enter the body of the man who would become the Director of Deadman Wonderland so he can gather Deadmen for further experimentation with Carnival Corpse as a means to select a new stronger body to occupy. As the story opens, Hagire's vessel become terminally ill with Tsunenaga Tamaki running the prison with the hope that what he presume to be his father dies so he can reign Deadman Wonderland unopposed. However, presumed to have been killed by the Wretched Egg, Hagire transferred his consciousness into the body of Toto and proceeded to undermine his son's agenda. Following Hagire's "death," Tamaki salvaged his head and used it for his personal bowling game. As a result, Hagire gained Toto's Love Labyrinth ability and uses it to find the ideal Deadman whose Branch of Sin can unlock the Mother Goose system in order to release the Wretched Egg's full powers to recreate the events of the Great Tokyo earthquake.

He is eventually defeated and killed by Ganta shortly after the Mother Goose system was unlocked.

When Tamaki's plans were thwarted, Hagire revealed himself in Toto's body much to the dismay of Tamaki who then kills himself claiming that Deadman Wonderland is his "game." Afterwards, Hagire escapes deep into Deadman Wonderland with Shiro as its prison part closes. Finding Ganta to be the ideal specimen yet unable to bypass the Mother Goose system's lock via Toto's ability, Hagire attempts to get transferred into the boy's body when Senji manages to arrive in time to stop it. He is eventually defeated and killed by Ganta shortly after the Mother Goose system was unlocked. Tsunenaga Tamaki (玉木, Tamaki Tsunenaga) is a major antagonist of the first half of the story. He is the Chief Warden and de facto tyrant of Deadman Wonderland with a fox or weasel-like appearance who also serves as the prison's promoter. In the anime, he is the son of the Prison Director whom Rinichir Hagire transferred his being into. Under his calm, almost idiotic attitude, he is something of a sadist with connections to the Japanese government and is not above butchering dozens of prisoners every day for the sole purpose of profit, science and mainly for his own twisted amusement. Before the Great Tokyo earthquake, Tamaki was an indifferent otaku and a recluse who included himself in his room to play video games on his computer without a care. He went insane when the earthquake destroyed his computer and badly injured his mother (who Tamaki let die because he was too busy mourning his computer), which led to him engineer Deadman Wonderland as a gigantic game to keep playing as he did before the earthquake.

Tamaki and those present are then confronted by Toto (now a vessel of Rinichirō Hagire).

He posed as a lawyer to rig evidence that would get Ganta sentenced to Deadman Wonderland. In the anime, he posed as a judge at Minatsuki's trial to get her sent to Deadman Wonderland. When it came to Ganta's first fight in the Carnival Corpse, Tamaki revealed to Ganta that he rigged the evidence at his trial and even tortures him by showing him footage of the different Carnival Corpse fights. While running Deadman Wonderland, Tamaki devoted much of his time with studying and experimenting with the Branch of Sin, invented the Worm Eater which he gave to the Undertakers to neutralize the Deadman's Branch of Sin, received funding from Major Aohi for the Forgeries, and made different plans to kill the Wretched Egg. In the end, Tamaki's schemes fall apart thanks to Ganta, his allies, and Makina. Tamaki and those present are then confronted by Toto (now a vessel of Rinichirō Hagire). Refusing to accept himself as Hagire's pawn, Tamaki commits suicide by shooting himself in the head as an ultimate assurance (but mostly delusion) that this was his, and only his, game. Makina (マキナ, Makina) is a harsh and cold chief of the prison guards. She serves as the chief enforcer which does not hesitate in punishing, often brutally, the prison's population. Before Deadman Wonderland, Makina was in the Special Forces. Known for her demeanor and her large breasts (G-cup size), Makina is infamous for carrying a decorated sword on her person at all times, and also for using it to cut whoever breaks the prison's rules (like she did when Yō Takami " stole" antidote candy from Ganta and she cut him with her sword when he wouldn't return it), acts that almost always result in bloodshed.

When Ganta commented that Makina was insane after she slashed Yō Takami, Makina quotes that reality is made to be unfair and unjust. Despite her brutality, Makina is far less twisted than Tamaki (whom she is greatly suspicious of) especially after discovering that her authority is limited. Eventually, after learning Tamaki's agenda, Makina forfeits her position to hunt him down with the aid of some allies in Ganta and the other Deadmen. When it came to Makina hunting for Tamaki, she had previously met Karako after her escape and had the Worm Eater technology embedded in her sword. After the suicide of Tamaki, she came into possession of the data regarding the Wretched Egg, the Deadmen, and the Forgeries and then oversaw the shutdown of Deadman Wonderland's prison area. When it came time to confront the Wretched Egg after an earlier military attack failed that had her recuperating in a wheelchair, Makina led the Deadmen in a fight against the Wretched Egg and Hagire. Kyoko Kasuga is a prison guard in Deadman Wonderland who was the personal assistant of Makina.

She is implied to be a lesbian or bisexual with an apparent large crush on Makina. Though it is unknown whether Makina reciprocates or is even aware of her feelings, she apparently has strong feelings of trust towards Kyōko. Enough to bring her along while searching for top secret information relating to G-Block. Kyōko is occasionally used as a comic relief character. Dr. Rei Takashima is a physician who works at Deadman Wonderland. She was charged with the duty of removing the specific parts of the Deadmen that lost in Carnival Corpse and had survived (she removes the parts without applying anesthetic to the Deadman) where she shows off a sadistic side when doing it as seen when she surgically removed Senji's right eye. Of course Rei also becomes enraged when she doesn't get to remove a non-regenerative organ as seen when Nagi had secretly rigged the macabre slot machine so that she would have to cut off Minatsuki's hair. Rei was the one who told Ganta about the live-saving candy after Tamaki collapsed the tower on Ganta and Rei patched Ganta up. After Senji was defeated by Ganta, Rei showed off her sadistic side when she was ordered to remove Senji's right eye while even licking her lips at the same time.
