* AudibleSharpness: In the film. When Kitano pulls his knife out of Fujiyoshi's skull, it inexplicably makes a metallic sound.

* DrivenToSuicide: In the film, Shuya's father hangs himself after his mother left the family. During the program itself, this happens to a few students who would rather die than fight. [[spoiler: Yuko Sakaki kills herself after accidentally poisoning one of her friends, which caused her other friends to turn on each other.]]

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 [[TooSoon obvious]] [[UsefulNotes/{{Columbine}} reasons]].

* LetThemDieHappy: Mitsuko's big PetTheDog moment (only in the novel) also involves this. She lies to [[spoiler:her MoralityPet Yuichiro, who's dying]] by saying that his friend [[spoiler:Tadakatsu]] (whom she killed) ran away after accidentally shooting him, making him believe that he's still alive. She also doesn't reveal to him that she manipulated them all along and gives him a sincere kiss just before killing him instantly with a gun so that her face is his last vision. While the narration doesn't explicitly say it, she had no other reasons than this trope to act like that.

* {{Badass}}: About a half of the main cast: [[ZenSurvivor Shogo Kawada]], [[TheCracker Shinji Mimura]], [[ImplacableMan Kazuo Kiriyama]] and [[MartialPacifist Hiroki Sugimura]], each in their own right. Among the girls, Mitsuko Souma and Takako Chigusa, who, at the point of the game that Niida found her, was the only girl without a gun or/and well-armed allies in the island. Still, trying to assault her was a ''bad'' idea.

* AcceptableFeminineGoalsAndTraits: It's most apparent just after Noriko's dream sequence, where she tells Kawada how she was expected to just leave school, find a man, be a {{Housewife}} and live a normal, boring life. Now however, with all this, she realises that even if she does somehow survive (and remember that her protector, Shuya, is missing at this point) then nothing will ever be the same again.

* AllLovingHero: Shuya. Heck, the guy is so innocent and wonderful, he actually manages to convert and save the souls of several crazy / bad people by giving them emotional speeches (before [[KillEmAll they die]], of course).

* 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).
** In the manga, Shuya spends a lot of time reassuring everyone that Shinji's going to come up with a plan to get them all off the island. [[spoiler:Finding his body is a big factor in Shuya's epic HeroicBSOD.]]

* HandWave: The film largely handwaves the premise, which is extremely flawed, by vaguely explaining it in 30 seconds of a 2 hour film and then never touching politics again.

* IJustShotMarvinInTheFace: Lampshaded in the YMMV English translation of the manga: in the beginning of the car chase, when Shogo kicks away the windshield so he doesn't have to "dodge flying glass", he hands Shuuya his Uzi, recommending him to not "go all Marvin in Pulp Fiction" with the weapon.

* ImplacableMan: Kazuo Kiriyama. In all three versions, he just keeps coming...and he can't be reasoned with.
* ImprobableWeaponUser: Mai in the sequel, with her explosive-laden ''doll''.
