* {{Deconstruction}}: Nagito deconstructs the entire concept of the Lucky Student, as embodied by Makoto from the first game. His status as the "ordinary student" has left him with an inferiority complex, his luck (which includes both extreme good and bad luck) has brought him hardship and taken its toll on his psyche, and his concept of hope has become so warped that he thinks spreading despair will make hope grow stronger.

** The second intro (post-Monokuma) gives us a big red flag to signal that Nagito isn't the amiable companion he starts out as. Everyone's backgrounds signal something about their backstory or personality. Nagito's is a white tiled wall...that turns into a bloody mess, with an incomplete but ominous message written on the wall behind him (it looks like "Who are you?" and "I will find you"). The blood spatter even goes over his name plate. Appropriate, given Nagito's well-honed detective skills, enthusiasm for murder, and his own [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill vicious death.]]

* JerkassFacade: It's hinted that the Imposter very much unlike the actual Byakuya is a nice and polite person and his occasional stand-offish and arrogant behavior is him trying to stay somewhat in-character as Byakuya. This is especially noticeable and eventually confirmed in his Freetime Events.

If "combining traits of multiple characters means a character can't be a true Expy of any of them" we have to nix a lot more than just Kazuichi. If we bring these back using only the most obvious DR 1 I suggest Toko for Kazuichi, Chihiro for Chiaki, and Togami for both Fuyuhiko and Hiyoko. I would like to find a way to bring back these examples of how the characters are clearly and intentionally invoking members of the previous cast though, as this is ''not'' an ignorable trait and the only problem here seems to be that they often combinations since they aren't that ambiguous, they all seem very deliberate since ''everyone'' has at least one, and most pass the "copy" aspect as well.
* {{Expy}}: Most obviously of Chihiro (similar titles, designs and official art poses) and Kyoko (similar role, color scheme, and relationship with the player character). Her [[ArtificialIntelligence true nature]] also gives her a lot in common with Alter Ego, which makes sense since he is her "brother" and both of them take after their "father".

* {{Expy}}: ** Of original-game-era Byakuya Togami, both being blonde-haired, ruthless and socially powerful. They also both immediately declare ImNotHereToMakeFriends and [[TokenEvilTeammate refuse to obey the group dynamic]] (e.g. Byakuya disobeying the "Night Time" rule the students had imposed upon themselves; Fuyuhiko refusing to go to the "mandatory" party). Like Byakuya, Fuyuhiko is ''also'' one of the final survivors of the game. However, unlike him, Fuyuhiko allows his emotions to get the better of him at one point, with disastrous consequences. Interestingly, his relationship with Peko plays near diametric opposite to Byakuya and Toko's relationship. ** A guy who is introduced as an antagonistic jerk and turns out to have deep issues stemming from his love for his childhood friend? Sounds a bit like [[{{LightNovel/DanganRonpaZero}} Yasuke Matsuda]], doesn't it? ** In the original version of the script he was going to be something of a reverse-Ishimaru, spending the first few chapters failing to spread distrust as opposed to Ishimaru's failed attempts to create unity. His violent attitude would lead to two people dying in the second chapter while Ishimaru would go on to [[ItsAllMyFault blame himself]] for the two deaths in the previous chapter, and Kuzuryuu would ultimately come around to being a NiceGuy trying to contribute while Ishimaru would get put through the TraumaCongaLine in the midst of a Heroic BSOD (Kuzuryuu becoming Hinata's BromanticFoil while Naegi's attempts to help would just [[NiceJobBreakingItHero break Ishimaru further]]). Finally, both would end up getting killed off unceremoniously in the third chapter before their freight train-like CharacterDevelopment could progress any further, except the writers decided against letting Pekoyama's sacrifice become meaningless. So this was a strange aversion.

* {{Expy}}: Seems to be one of Aoi Asahina, from the first game. She also seems to take some traits from Sakura Oogami as well. In addition, her friendship with Nekomaru is very similar to Aoi's relationship with Sakura. Right down to ''surviving all the cases'', since she's one of the few people who is never either murdered or executed as a murderer, just like Aoi was. Her love for food in general can be seen in a similar light to Aoi's love for donuts and food. On top of all that, her official artwork's pose (seen above) is nearly identical to Sakura's. She takes a bit after the third athlete in the first game, Leon Kuwata, as she's a "natural" who dislikes training and cares about her talent as a gymnast mainly for what it can get her.

* {{Expy}}: Shares many similarities with both Celeste and [[RedHerring Junko]] from Dangan Ronpa, in terms of both design (MegaTwinTails and very specific fashion choices based around a culture/sub-culture) and personality (Manipulative and cruel with a heavy emphasize on using their appearance to affect how others view them for their own gain). This was likely meant to be a RedHerring to encourage the player to (further) suspect her of being a future killer or having a connection to Junko. ** Her free-time events reveal she is the heir of her family who has suffered a lot for her talents (Due to jealousy from other family members) and has made other members of said family suffer for her own sake (Her step-father in particular), not unlike Byakuya's history with his family's "tradition" and his older siblings. She also has a similar mind-set to him at times, specifically referring to herself as a "perfect person", treating everyone around her as servants to use or misuse as she pleases, and being NotSoDifferent with Monokuma. Like the above this also seems very intentional since, [[WhatCouldHaveBeen as she was meant to be a survivor instead of Fuyuhiko]], this would have made her the Byakuya parallel of the surviving cast just as he ended up being in the final product.

* {{Expy}}: ** His angular, wild-haired design makes him resemble Leon, and he shares several speech patterns with him. This is combined with Kiyotaka's extreme expressiveness and InelegantBlubbering and Yasuhiro's ButtMonkey status and tendency to panicking and overreacting, yet be surprisingly capable of playing the StraightMan if dealing with the wackier members of the student body. ** In addition, one could also say he's an expy of Toko, as they both are very open about their one sided crushes on attractive upper-class blondes that want little to do with them. His former appearance even sounded similar to how she looks (or if his teeth are naturally shark-like, Syo) and they also both have a very long histories regarding being bullied by their peers in school. ** Finally, he shares Celestia's backstory of trying to reconstruct himself as an interesting person to make up for being plain throughout his life. Unlike her, his mask falls ''[[ComicalOverreacting much]]'' easier.
