Justifying edit
** Although it's very possible the poison was augmented in some way before it was given out as a weapon.

* DecoyProtagonist: In the novel, Shinji is shown as being a near-perfect student in a clear attempt to not make it obvious that Shuya is. Thus, Shinji's [[spoiler:death in the middle of the book]] is a huge surprise, after which no attempt is made to hide Shuya's hero status. While this is a commendable idea in theory, it meant turning Shinji into a total Mary Sue. No surprise therefore that the idea was dropped for the film ([[spoiler:with Shinji's death becoming a climactic action sequence]] and in fact the English translation of the book even has on its cover two silhouettes who are blatantly meant to be Shuya and Noriko).

* TamperingWithFoodAndDrink: Mistakenly believing Shuya to have murdered another student (the death was accidentally self-inflicted), Yuko tries to kill him with food laced with potassium chloride. Another student ends up eating it, her death causing a domino effect that [[MexicanStandoff kills all of Yuko's friends]], then [[DrivenToSuicide Yuko, herself]].

These two paragraphs can be added to the pages for Hunger Games and Cinema Sins, but they add nothing here.
''Literature/TheHungerGames'' -- a book series with a similar premise to ''Battle Royale'' -- is often referred to as "Battle Royale" in a derogatory manner by those who feel the ''Hunger Games'' series ripped off this book. Creator/SuzanneCollins maintains she knew nothing of ''Battle Royale'' when she wrote her books; at any rate, works well before ''Battle Royale'' have used similar themes, though not as blatant as "children who know each other forced to kill one another until only one remains". Jeremy Scott of ''WebVideo/CinemaSins'' later covered this film in his "Everything Wrong With" series in honor of ''Literature/TheHungerGames Saga: Mockingjay - Part 1'', making it the first foreign language film covered by ''Cinema Sins''.

Complete misuse of Tomato In The Mirror ([[Arson Murder And Jaywalking not to mention it's alphabetized incorrectly). Moving Tomboy And Girly Girl because it is also alphabetized incorrectly.
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: Yumiko Kusaka and Yukiko Kitano, respectively, in the novel.

* TomatoInTheMirror: Quite possibly an audience/reader reaction, given the chances of inadvertently finding yourself wondering if you could do it, how well you'd do, etc. Of course, the question of whether or not you could kill your best friend is the entire point. ** It doesn't just stop there. There's also the thought of how your class would do. * TomboyAndGirlyGirl: Yumiko Kusaka and Yukiko Kitano, respectively, in the novel.

These are examples of Rasputanian Deaths, not bodies being easy to destroy.
* MadeOfPlasticine: The manga version is ''extremely'' graphic. Kegfuls of blood are spilled, brains are frequently blown out, one character is disemboweled, and another is ''torn in half'' when she hits the ground after she jumps off a lighthouse. According to some, even blows the infamous ''Manga/ElfenLied'' out of the water. Two examples: ** When [[spoiler:Shinji Mimura dies, he is machine gunned, causing his stomach to split open and his intestines to fall out of his body. He puts them back in with duct tape, has the bottom half of his foot blown off, jumps through a window, has a clip from an ingram emptied into him, is still alive enough to aim at Kiriyama, who shoots him through the throat, and we learn later he was alive enough to carve a message into a truck with a nail]]. ** [[spoiler:Kazuo Kiriyama, shot through the arm, cuts into his arm and sellotapes a tendon onto his arm so his finger works, later, jumps out of car at high speed, jumps out of a second car while it's in mid-air after being shotgunned. Is shot in the stomach at close range by a shotgun (his bullet proof jacket protects him). Is shot through the cheek and out the back of his head, has his eye put out by a wooden spear head, and is finally killed by a bullet through the throat, though it takes him a while to die.]]

** One day, your children simply do not come home from school. One of their classmates killed the rest.

Panty Shot is no examples please;
* [[EverythingTryingToKillYou Everyone Trying to Kill You]]: Most of the students actually decide to play the game, but [[GenreBlindness Shuya]] doesn't seem to realize this.

Originally a novel by Koushun Takami, '''''Battle Royale''''' was adapted into a live-action movie and a DoorStopper manga series (it has over ''3000 pages''). The plots of these adaptations have minor differences, but each feature the same general events. An [[ForeignRemake American remake]] was announced in 2006, but it has been stuck in DevelopmentHell for reasons that [[TooSoon obvious]] [[UsefulNotes/{{Columbine}} reasons]].
