Before the Games
Usagi was the daughter of a famous mountain climber in Japan and often came with him whenever he went on trips to the mountains. But after being accused of faking his hike on Mount Everest, he allegedly committed suicide after telling Usagi he's going to hike. Usagi initially felt like a wreck, but secretly promised her father that she'll survive when in the borderland.
Throughout the Series
Usagi first appears in Episode 2 during the Five of Spades game. She is seen as a key player and helps out greatly to clear the game, using her mountain climbing skills in order to reach the safe room as quickly as possible.
After the Seven of Hearts game, she runs into Arisu on the road and initially didn't help him. Eventually, she took pity on him when he stayed lying down when it was raining heavily and rescued him. She praised his way of handling the Five of Spades game and encouraged him to live by saying "I don't want you to die.". Together, they clear the Four of Clubs game.
Usagi and Arisu find out about the Beach and attempt to collect information from other players in order to reach the location. However, they are kidnapped by the Beach executives themselves and are forced to give their cards to the Hatter.
While Aguni is elected as the Beach's new leader, Usagi and Arisu are dragged into a plan to steal all of the playing cards under Chishiya's direction. They later find out that the plan was a hoax, and Arisu is kidnapped while Usagi stopped Niragi from raping her by biting his tongue.
During the Witch Hunt Game (Ten of Hearts), Usagi finds out where Arisu is, after embracing him, she helps him out of the tape and rope. She assists him in figuring out who the true witch is. She helps him reach the main room to inform the other players of his ideas, however, they are both hit several times by Aguni whilst he tries to convince them that he is the witch. When Niragi started his shooting spree, Usagi tried to stopped him with Arisu but failed. The players eventually team up to put a stop to Aguni's violent actions and successfully move Momoka's body to the Fire of Judgement after finding out she is the true witch, resulting in a Game Clear. In the end, the building goes down in flames.
