I think I remember some characters in steins;gate ending sentences with お or だお. What does it mean?

  • Do you have any example sentences? (Please?)

  • I don't have any examples now, but I can look for some when I get home. I mostly remember this expression being used by Daru.

1 Answer 1


I'm pretty sure that it came from ~だよ.

This is just my opinion but by using ~だお instead of ~だよ for a character, you can make him/her sound like a person who is cute, laid back, easy-going, girly, ほんわか、萌え系、のんびり、..., etc.

I think that these characters often don't speak clearly or speak like a little boy/girl just to create the characteristics listed above so y is dropped in dayo and it sounds like dao.
