How did Kaito kill Kokichi?

  1. Danganronpa is a Japanese video game franchise spread over multiple forms of media. The video games have three titles and a spin-off first-person shooter, released over PlayStation 4 and Vita. Moreover, it holds multiple visual novel and manga adaptations as well as smartphone titles and two anime series. The game transports its players into an interesting universe that follows a group of talented high school students, or so it seems. The students are forced to kill each other so they can come out victorious and alive.

    The game is controlled by a robot nearby the name of Monokuma who traps the teens in the school and explains that the only way they can graduate is if they kill someone and get away with it after the Class Trial, where the others try to solve the murder mystery.

    The third title of the game Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony is loosely based on the Hope’s Peak Academy storyline of Danganronpa 3: The end of Hope’s Peak High School.

    An unclear fact regarding Chapter 5 of the story arc of Danganronpa V3 is how one of the students Kaito Momota (named the Ultimate Astronaut)  did or did not end up murdering Kokuchi Oma (named the Ultimate Supreme Leader)

    While it is told that Kaito is the killer, there is not enough evidence to know for sure. Kokuchi, around the time of the murder, had already been suffering from a poison Strike-9 and could very possibly have died from that. It may be that by the time Kaito dragged him under the hydraulic press, he was already long dead from the poison. In which case, the actual Killer would have been Maki but for the sake of continuing the game and because of his dislike for Monokuma, Kaito exposed himself as the killer, especially since he was already dying from his illness.
