* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: Subverted. At the end, Monokuma declares that he's going to punish Makoto first because plain guys like him either become the main character or wind up dead. [[BigDamnHeroes Then Usami comes to life and promptly kicks Monokuma's butt.]]

* AdaptationInducedPlotHole: In the game, Chihiro brings up the possibility that the infamous Genocider Syo has locked them up, and Toko wears a worried look on her face with some VisibleSilence, before freaking out when Aoi says that the police will surely arrive to help them (as if to imply she's afraid of getting caught for her crimes). Here, the discussion never turns to the Genocider at all and Toko freaks out over nothing when Aoi says the same (the dub got around this by changing the context to have Toko agree that the police arriving would be a good thing... [[OutOfCharacterMoment which is a whole other can of worms]]).

The story takes place at [[ElaborateUniversityHigh Hope's Peak Academy]], an illustrious private school that only accepts "super" students: the best of the best ''of'' the best. The criteria extends to any niche, so in addition to super-geniuses and super-athletes, they take [[IdolSinger super-idols]], [[JapaneseDelinquents super-gang-leaders]], and [[{{Otaku}} super-nerds]].

* EstablishingSeriesMoment: The first murder, particularly after it's revealed that Sayaka did it to frame Makoto, and Leon, after killing Sayaka in what was (at least initially) a case of self-defense, also tried to frame Makoto for his crime. This not only establishes that AnyoneCanDie and no one can be fully trusted, but it also shows that decent people can be driven to do terrible things as a result of their circumstances while still having redeeming traits, a recurring theme.



* FakeLongevity: Trying to [[GottaCatchEmAll get all the presents]] essentially boils down to replaying Class Trials a bunch of times to grind for Monocoins, as well as constantly replaying School Mode to max out the RelationshipValues for each character for their underwear. It's actually worse in the original release, which lacked School Mode. As a result, it takes an incredibly long time to get all the Free Time Events. To expand on that, there 19 opportunities to preform Free Time Event's (the first locking you into Sayaka) and over 40 Free Time Events. It takes 3 playthroughs just to get all of them.

* NeverTrustATrailer: Promotional material showed all fifteen students in the trial scenes (obscuring who dies in Chapter 1) and heavily implied that Sayaka would be the main love interest for Makoto (when she's actually the first victim). The free demo goes so far as to change the victim of the first case to Yasuhiro. This was repeated in trailers for the anime.

* RealisticDictionIsUnrealistic: The trials always run smoothly enough that every student will usually have the chance to speak clearly and concisely no matter their characterization implying a higher likelihood of shouting over everyone else (with things like [[HesitationEqualsDishonesty stuttering and pauses usually being used as a sign of guilt]]). As heated as the discussions get, only the protagonist will actually jump into someone else's sentence, to the point that the sequel decided to include interruptions as a gameplay element in the form of rebuttal showdowns.

The various "white noise," however, does seem to imply that people are talking in the background.



** Same goes with Makoto in the Good End of that chapter: he sweats bullets and almost gets crushed until Alter Ego overrides the machine and stops the block. Still ends up falling down a garbage chute, though.

* TheHeart: Despite being impaled and in considerable pain Makoto calmly talks the paranoid and confused group into uniting and giving Mukuro the self-admitted terrorist a chance to speak. He does this by talking though the bonds and secrets he shared with the others, including Sakura's hidden rivalry and Toko's next novel, proving the trust each of them shared before having their memories erased.

* ConvictionByContradiction: This actually gets subverted in the second trial after Mondo 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 Kyoko admitting her reasoning is weak taken on its own.

** Byakuya 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 Mukuro 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 Mukuro.

* FailureIsTheOnlyOption: As she's cradling the broken Monokuma with her sister's voice still feeding through its speakers, Ikusaba tells Enoshima that their plan was inherently flawed because it required the student's school memories be erased. Knowing they would never kill each other otherwise, by this act she's admitting that their hope was too strong for her to beat, thereby undoing the entire point she so badly wanted to prove to the world. Enoshima simply responds by once again calling her a disappointment.


Added DiffLines:

* PinkySwear: Naegi and Kirigiri do this before she heads off into danger. He's making her promise to come back safely.
