** Quite a few of the manga arcs have had downer endings too. The UsefulNotes/JackTheRipper arc ends with Madam Red dying. The {{Circus|OfFear}} arc has all the first tier members die except Snake. And let's not forget all the children Ciel had burned alive when he set [[StalkerWithACrush Baron]] [[{{Shotacon}} Kelvin]]'s estate on fire, although his reasoning was that the children would never be themselves and remain in such a [[EmptyShell traumatized]] state that killing them was probably the best option.

* The ''Literature/BattleRoyale'' manga, unlike the original book, ends on a rather depressing note. [[spoiler:While Shuya and Noriko both survive the Program and escape the Greater East Asian Republic to America, the short epilogue consists of Shuya's narration implying that their relationship eventually became strained as a result of their traumatic memories of the Program. To add insult to injury, he chides himself for never having told her that he loved her]].

To add insult to injury, he chides himself for and him never having told her that he loved her]].actually saying "I love you" to her. Meanwhile, the horrendous game has not stopped, so another class will be chosen to participate in six months.



* In ''Manga/BattleRoyale'' almost every named character dies. Though [[spoiler:the protagonists]] survive they're upset about the deaths of their classmates.
** Despite the large number of deaths among named characters only one unnamed Government {{mook|s}} is killed, though the rest are injured. As the remaining mooks are put in a raft and dropped into the sea it's unknown if they survive.

** On a more personal note in ''Side:Hope'', Munakata has lost everything, including Chisa and Juzo (even more so with the former, who is lobotimized by the aforementioned video prior to the Tragedy), and blames himself for his actions during the Final Killing Game, stepping down his position as a Future Foundation head and setting off to WalkTheEarth as a result.

* The ending of ''Side:Despair'' in ''Anime/DanganRonpa3''it even warns you at the beginning "this is a tale of hope that ends in despair". In short, [[TheBadGuyWins The Tragedy has begun]]: Chisa and Class 77-B were turned into Junko lackeys through the Brainwashing Despair Video, Chiaki is brutally tortured to death, and Ryota is a broken, guilt-ridden wreck. Since it's just a {{Prequel}}, this is certainly expected, as Izuru becomes TheStarscream, plotting behind Junko's back out of anger for what she did to Chiaki, setting up the events of ''VisualNovel/SuperDanganRonpa2''.
