* EvolvingCredits: As the game progresses, the intro sequence tints the introduction screens of the deceased students in red. In addition, during the third trial where Nekomaru is incapacitated and unable to participate, his intro screen is darkened.

* HoistByHisOwnPetard: Hope's Peak Academy itself -- there were hints at this in the first game, but the sequel spells it out. It exists to foster an obsessive level of elitism, splitting the world into "the super-talented" and "the rest," a philosophy that wouldn't sit well with many people. However, the actions detailed in this game make it clear that it accidentally engineered its own destruction. ** The academy only cares about talent. If you possess enough of it, you're in. No matter how unstable, unethical or criminal you might be, you'll be accepted and thrown in with your more peaceable peers without any supervision. So when one of them (Junko) turns out to be a nihilistic sociopath, she has access to a pool of hyper-talented people she can bend to her cause -- including her Ultimate Soldier sibling and a nigh-unstoppable Academy experiment. ** Any dubious (or downright criminal) activity they might commit was covered up by the Academy for the sake of reputation, up to and including mass murder. As a result, Izuru is left running loose, and Junko uses the cover up for her own ends. ** They used the Reserve Department to bankroll their super-special students (and the research the academy was doing on them). These reserves were only for use as cash cows for the Academy and received none of the special treatment the Ultimates did -- and they were made fully aware of their second class status. Unsurprisingly, when the Reserves saw that the Academy treated them like dirt, only to use their money to create a mass-murderer, they revolted just as Junko wanted them to. ** The Academy used (at least) one of those "mundane" students as a guinea pig by exploiting his admiration for Hope's Peak, effectively killing the good-natured original student and replacing him with what they saw as "The Ultimate Hope". They inadvertently create the a killer who will be a major factor in the Academy's downfall. ** In general, the Academy didn't supervise or rein in its students, and encouraged the idea that they weren't answerable to "average" people. The lack of supervision ensured that nobody even realized that Junko was a threat until it was too late, and both the games and side materials indicate that having free access to the Academy's expensive and specialized facilities was ''extremely'' useful to Ultimate Despair (for example, the mind-wiping device -- apparently nobody on the staff thought it might be a ''bit'' risky to have such a thing lying around).

* YourMindMakesItReal: Despite the students being trapped in a massive computer simulation, the program works ''too'' well, meaning that anybody who dies inside it effectively becomes braindead in the real world. Possibly.

The official spelling seems to go for "Imposter".

** A subversion occurs in chapter 2. After everyone has voted her as the blackened, Peko tries to argue that she is not actually the killer, but rather the murder weapon since she is a tool of Fuyuhiko, who is therefore the real murderer. Her plan fails, as Monokuma decides that since she was the one who bashed Mahiru's head in with a bat and was definitely not ordered by Kuzuryu to do so, she IS the killer.

Her plan fails, This would mean that he gets to go free while everyone else is executed, as the votes have already been cast. Monokuma decides is willing to accept this argument, but only if Fuyuhiko is willing to admit that since he does not care about Peko. It doesn't work: Fuyuhiko sees her as a human being and a friend rather than a mere tool, so she was is considered to be the one who bashed Mahiru's head in with a bat and was definitely not ordered by Kuzuryu to do so, she IS the killer.blackened.

* NotDisabledInVR: We find out in the final chapter that [[spoiler:every one of the students besides Nanami were once members of [[BigBad Enoshima]]'s despair group, and in multiple cases were covered in self-inflicted mutilations from their desire to feel despair (with some severing their own body parts to be replaced with limbs from Enoshima's corpse). The survivors from [[VisualNovel/{{Danganronpa}} the first game]] placed them all inside the Neo World Program with the intent of reforming them by erasing sections of their memories from before they all entered high school and got involved with Enoshima in the first place, which restores them to their youth to keep the illusion real and gave them bodies to reflect this]].

* BloodierAndGorier: In comparison to the prequel, which was already far from being gore-free [[BlackBlood despite all the blood being censored as pink]]. The deaths of Nekomaru and Nagito in particular qualify for this trope: the former is smashed to pieces after falling from a great height, while the latter suffers a self-inflicted, borderline RasputinianDeath. Furthermore, Fuyuhiko has one of his eyes gouged out with a sword (albeit accidentally), and the final trial doesn't shy away from some of the horrific crimes committed by the protagonists as members of Ultimate Despair - including mass murder, ColdBloodedTorture and [[ILoveTheDead possible necrophilia]].
