* GratuitousEnglish: In the original version of the game, the title card for each execution is labeled with a Japanese title and an English subtitle. The translation isn't always exact; for example, "Thousand Knocks" becomes "Million Fungoes" and "Little Black Sambo's Motorcycle Death Cage" is shortened to "Motorcycle Death Cage."

*** The 4-koma manga also points out that it is deliberately sleeping outside the dorms that is banned--being knocked unconscious is A-OK.

* TwelveEpisodeAnime: Thirteen Episode Anime actually, as said above. While the short length may make it seem too rushed at times at the cost of character development, it's hard to deny that the number suits the series well.

* GoLookAtTheDistraction: Realizing she can't beat Sakura in a fair fight, Mukuro opts to distract her by forcing Toko to become Genocide Jack. As Jack is ''very'' distracting, this allows Mukuro to escape the gym with Makoto.

* {{Badass}}: We learn that despite her age, Mukuro was famous for never receiving any injuries in all her years of combat. When her and Sakura fight, Mukuro receives her first injury on her arm and Sakura was mostly just trying to knock her out, with Mukuro's narration saying she could only see herself standing a chance up-close with the Ultimate Martial Artist if she was carrying an assault rifle. Amusingly, in the same novel [[ConservationOfNinjutsu Mukuro takes out dozens of Monokumas while in the main story just battling one leaves Sakura needing to spend the entire next day recovering]].

* BigDamnHeroes: Alter Ego at the end of Chapter 5, showing up just in time to stop Makoto from being executed.


Added DiffLines:

* ChekhovsBoomerang: Alter Ego. Early in Chapter 2, a laptop is found in the library and seems to be inoperable. It quietly disappears, although no one comments on it. Chapter 3 reveals that Chihiro had fixed it and installed his own program, Alter Ego, to analyze the contents of the laptop. In Chapter 4, the files are cracked, Alter Ego is hooked up to the school's network to search for more information and contact the outside world, and he is executed. Chapter 5 has a copy of Alter Ego, planted in the school's network when the original was hooked up, save Makoto from his execution, helping to set the stage for the final confrontation.

** The portrayal of The Worst, Most Destructive Event in Human History is radically different, presented as if Monokuma had taken over the world. In the later installments, the event is instead portrayed as a series of terrible events across the world, with Ultimate Despair being anarchic terrorists. The shorter name for the event (The Tragedy) also didn't see use until ''VisualNovel/SuperDanganRonpa2''.

The game has inspired a series of other works, a list of which is compiled [[Franchise/Danganronpa here]]. A compilation game was later released called ''Danganronpa 1&2 RELOAD'', which includes both the first installment and [[VisualNovel/SuperDanganronpa2 its sequel]] with some [[UpdatedRerelease incremental improvements]] to both, such as a bonus scenario for the first game called "School Mode": a social mode that lets you hang out and form relationships with the other characters without worrying about the main plot progressing.
