Megu Kataoka is a student in Korosensei's Class 3-E in Kunugigaoka Junior High School. She is the female class representative.[1]

Appearance

Kataoka is a tall girl with long, light brown hair kept in a ponytail with straight bangs. She is described as being "dashing" by Nagisa and according to Irina's fashion reviews of the students, she also has the physique and making of a model. This combined with her personality and talents earned her the title "Ikemegu".

Personality

Kataoka is a kind and capable person with very strong leadership skills which has been noted several times in the series. She's level-headed and rational and as a result is good at keeping everyone (namely the boys) in line. She was said to know how to take care of others, however, in the past, she allowed others to rely on her too much. A running gag is that she seems to have a relationship complex and seems to be greatly concerned about not being feminine enough.

Etymology

Kataoka (片岡) Kata () means "one (of a pair)" and Oka () means "hill."

History

During her arc, it was revealed that Kataoka was indeed dropped to Class E because of low grades. Her former classmate Kokona Tagawa made her help her study before every test, due to the claim that it's because Megu didn't teach her how to swim properly (when in reality it was Kokona's own fault for not taking more lessons) which nearly caused her to drown at the beach. Because she was constantly helping Kokona her own grades in her weak subjects became worse.

Plot

She was first introduced as the female class representative of Class E. Her spotlight moment in Chapter 43, when the class was swimming in the pool made by Korosensei. Her excellent swimming skill was when she saved Kayano from drowning. The reason for her low grades, which prompted her entrance to Class E were explained in the subsequent chapter. With Korosensei's guidance, they helped Tagawa to overcome her lackluster swimming, which caused her to not rely on Kataoka anymore. This experience helped Kataoka to learn not to let others rely on her too much.

She was shown to lead Class E in most times throughout different chapters. Notable examples include leading the girls and Nagisa through the bar room in the Assassination Island arc and later leading the rescue team during the God of Death arc.

Abilities

Athletics: Kataoka is the best swimmer in Class E. She was the representative of the school's freestyle before dropping to class E and recently swam 50 meters in 26.08 seconds. Karasuma notes that her athleticism allows her to carry the same momentum and constitution as the other male students of Class E, making her a good close combat fighter. She also has good leadership skills.

Knifework: Kataoka was scored joint 4th in the class (along with Masayoshi Kimura, Hinata Okano and Taiga Okajima) for Knife training from April to June.
