Added DiffLines:
* ConvictionByContradiction: This actually gets subverted in the second trial after Owada is subjected to a PullingTheThread plot. He yells out that he's being treating him like a criminal without a scrap of evidence, which leads to Kirigiri admitting her reasoning is weak taken on its own.

Added DiffLines:
* DramaticIrony: Unlike the viewers, Naegi never actually got a look at the one who attacked him in the secret room at the end of Chapter 3, and so had no way of connecting that incident to the masked assailant who nearly stabbed him in the middle of Chapter 5. * DubInducedPlotHole: In the original script, Monokuma simply told Naegi and Togami during the fifth investigation that Kirigiri has something on her hands she wants no one to see, while NISA's script has him outright declaring that she's hiding hideous burn scars underneath her gloves. This leads to Togami seeming dumber/less observant by the fact that he still believes she's the victim after hearing that and then not comparing it to the corpse, which is free of any burn scars on the hands (while, Naegi's thoughts merely trail off towards the inconsistency of wearing gloves over fake nails). ** Togami calls the bloody classroom he finds on the fourth floor "like a battlefield" and the dub has Monokuma telling the two to "soldier on" in solving the room's mystery, as if to imply Ikusaba did it. This line wasn't in the original, and LightNovel/DanganronpaZero reveals that a battle did take place in the location, but had nothing to do with Ikusaba.

Added DiffLines:
* YouWakeUpInARoom: Happens to the protagonist, and presumably to all the other students.

Added DiffLines:
* VideoGameCrueltyPotential: Trigger Happy Heart events, as implied by their name, usually have the student in question with their pain, fears, frustrations, vulnerabilities and insecurities all on display, while the only available command involves agreeing or disagreeing with these internal reflections. Depending on the context, it's possible to make Naegi say some incredibly mean things to the other students.

* RushmoreRefacement: One of the images of "the outside world" that the mastermind shows the class in the final trial is of several famous monuments with Monokuma's face added to them. While it's real (as Genocide Jill proves) and is stated to be one of the things that happened due to The Worst, Most Despair-inducing Incident in the History of Mankind, it's still undetermined to what extend the total damage is.

* CharacterDerailment: In the game, Naegi can ask Ogami if she thinks he killed Maizono, and she'll answer that she's not prepared to throw blame around at anyone until there's a clearer picture, saying she'll go calmly with whatever conclusion the other students arrive at. In the anime, she's glaring suspiciously at Naegi right along with everyone else to save time. ** Celestia originally turned down Asahina's offer to go swimming due to a dislike of getting her head submerged, while the anime has her obliging immediately in order to move the plot along (she was the one who pointed out the possibility of students lending out their E-Handbooks to bypass the change room regulations). ** Hagakure says his writing is illegible during the third trial, despite his excellent penmanship being one of the more important factors in proving his innocence. ** Naegi's increased DeadpanSnarker tendencies lead to him swearing more in the dub, while NISA's translators chose to have him telling Enoshima that she's "full of shit" be a PrecisionFStrike.

* AdaptationDistillation: The introductions for all of the other students are toned down to a few sentences, whereas in the game they received several short paragraphs. The pacing of the story moves much more quickly. How much more quickly? Episode 9 out of a total of 13 features the trial surrounding Sakura's death. In the game, this is marked as the halfway point. * AdaptationExpansion: ** In episode 4 of the anime, they give a shot of Chihiro working on something that anyone who played the game will recognize. How and when Chihiro had time for this was never explained in the game, and its existence was only foreshadowed in a Free Time event you may not see. The anime gives us a little more direct foreshadowing and explanation. ** And in another act of foreshadowing in that scene, we see that Chihiro is using his toolkit. ** Additionally, in episode 6, the entire remaining cast gets to see the first suspicious class photo courtesy of Alter Ego, rather than simply Makoto stumbling upon it. ** And in the final episode, Makoto doesn't just spout out "You must not lose hope!" alone but goes on a whole RousingSpeech for each of the surviving students to keep their hope up.

In the game's fifth trial, suspicion jumps between Naegi and Kirigiri several times before settling on the planted locker key. Based on a later line to Togami, she probably wanted to prove that the trial was a trap by showing that none of the students could have done it, except she miscalculated the mastermind executing someone else in desperation. When time runs out with all the suspicion on Naegi, she first argues at Monokuma [[MovingTheGoalposts for inventing a rule]] and then [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone looks thoroughly disgusted with herself]], calling her own actions [[ThisIsUnforgivable unforgivable]] and trying to tell Naegi she's sorry and that she'll avenge him in what look like the last moments of his life. In the animation however, no suspicion ever falls on Naegi ([[AdaptationDistillation since the trial gets condensed to roughly 10 minutes]]) and he later moves the discussion towards the whole trial seeming questionable without the provocation of trying to defend himself like in the game. When time runs out in this version of the trial, she tells a bold-faced lie about him planting the locker key in her room -which was originally an explanation brought up by Togami in the absence of a suspect- after he just defended her when she was backed furthest into the corner. We never see her show the same intense regret over her sending him to his death, and her lengthy apology in the trash dump was also cut very short. While removing the player choice was necessary, this set-up ends up making her look a lot more petty and cold-hearted. * AffectionateNickname: In the English dub, Kirigiri occasionally gets her name shortened to "Kiri" (mostly by Naegi).

On the other, the first execution is ''noticeably'' censored, specifically as [[GoryDiscretionShot there's FAR more focus on the surroundings (and specially the machine that delivers said death) than on the victim]]. * CallBack: During the trial in episode 7, Monokuma can be seen eating pancakes with the butter Mondo was turned into in the previous episode.

* MeaningfulBackgroundEvent: In Episode 9, MrFanservice: Ishimaru is the go-guy who'd go topless (especially when Aoi reveals what she thinks sauna is Sakura's suicide note, [[ManipulativeBastard Monokuma]] involved) and shows off his well-built muscles on the chest. * MythologyGag: The game's targeting reticule is often used as an [[IdiosyncraticWipes Idiosyncratic Wipe]], and the loading screen before Naegi's motivational DVD starts giggling in is the background.same loading screen from the game. * TheNicknamer: In the dub, Monokuma seemingly has a demeaning new name every time he addresses the students. * NoCartoonFish: Played in a weird way. The series has Monokuma occasionally holding a live salmon to keep up the bear motif. At one point he uses it as a punching bag to relive stress.

* MeaningfulBackgroundEvent: In Episode 9, when Aoi reveals what she thinks is Sakura's suicide note, [[ManipulativeBastard Monokuma]] starts giggling OutOfCharacterMoment: One Halloween-themed piece of SideStoryBonusArt made for advertisement has Kirigiri dressed as a vampire and in the background.midst of plucking one glove off with her teeth. This whole sequence is ''extraordinarily'' out of character.

** Significant details on the setting are also left out. For instance, the anime completely skips over the revelation of how one room in the library is filled with top-secret documents, files, and records from all over the world, and chooses to focus solely on how it has important files on Genocide Jill. ** Similarly, in episode 5 the trial skips important details about the victim's identity as a whole (in the game we find out about Chihiro's "secret" when Sakura inspects the body in front of everyone, but in the anime Kyoko finds out off-screen and then explains it in the trial). However, Genocide Jill's ''very'' dramatic trial appearance and [[DespairEventHorizon a certain character's reactions]] to the trial's results and the execution that follow are expanded.

** Episode 7 also skips a lot of several important details (such as Hifumi's tendency on calling people in last name-first name order, which reveals Celeste being the mastermind). However, some of the cut off parts might end up for a better light on Celeste. In the anime, her statement that she has a LackOfEmpathy and has no problems in manipulating and disposing others for her own gain was removed, removing some of her unsympathetic points, and on the other hand, only Makoto was shown noticing her bluff instead of two people, making her scheme less blunder-filled. On the other hand, however, Makoto's monologue about how Celeste was faking her smile to hide her fear of death was ''also'' removed. * ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Byakuya is presented as more of this than a {{Jerkass}}, though he's still as cynical as he was in the game. * ScaryShinyGlasses: Done a lot by Byakuya. One of Junko Enoshima's personalities at the end of the anime does this too.

* TheCorpseStopsHere: Most of the students have a tendency to leap to conclusions. Fortunately, Makoto is not one of them.

Misuse. Developers Foresight is when the game has a response for unlikely player actions.
* TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything: Near the end in the localization, Kyoko christens Makoto the Ultimate Hope. Sure enough, if you open the e-handbook and look up his report card, his title has been changed to... [[GoodBadBugs Ultimate Despair]].
