** Mitsuko.

** Mitsuko.Mitsuko, because of her FreudianExcuse.



** Some of the students who went insane and tried to kill their classmates, like Yoshio Akamatsu, Kyoichi Motobuchi or Kaori Minami. After all, they're nothing but normal students, suddenly thrown in a deadly game where it's "kill or be killed". They couldn't handle the situation and snapped, but they weren't "evil".

** Let's be honest: every student who refuses to kill can qualify.

* CreepyAwesome: Kiriyama gives us the scariest scenes, but ''a lot'' of fans like him, [[{{Badass}} for]] [[HeroKiller several]] [[ImplacableMan reasons]].

* DracoInLeatherPants: The prevalent fandom attitude towards Mitsuko, who is a backstabber, a murderer (as well as the only student to have killed someone ''before'' the Program), and possibly even a rapist - explicitly so in the manga. May have been designed as such, the author having admitted she's his favourite female character.

** To say that Kazuo has fangirls would be a massive understatement.

Added DiffLines:

** The premise of the Program in the second movie. So, instead of sending experienced soldiers to take out the Wild Seven, the government sends a group of high school students without thinking about the possibility that Shuya has away around the exploding collars after [[spoiler: escaping them before in the first movie]]. Then there's the partner system where if a student dies, the student with the same number of the opposite sex dies with them, drastically reducing their numbers. Finally, they still give them joke weapons when they're fighting a terrorist organization. All the Government did was hand the Wild Seven targets/reinforcements on a silver platter.


Added DiffLines:

* SignatureScene:
** The First Movie:
*** The row call scene before the Program begins.
*** The crotch-stabbing scene.
*** The final confrontation with Kazuo.
** The Second Movie:
*** The "Merry Christmas" Speech, which has been considered even by people who hated the second movie to be the best scene.
*** Kitano's talk with his daughter on what he thought was her birthday, mostly for being the only scene Kinji Fukasaku filmed before he died.

** And that's not even mentioning the countless times where school shootings have made the idea of school kids killing each other extremely unsettling.

** And that's not even mentioning the countless times where school shootings have made the idea of school kids killing each other extremely unsettling. The Virginia Tech massacre in particular caused the American remake to be stuck in DevelopmentHell.

* AwesomeArt: ''Everyone'' can agree on the fact that the characters in the manga look [[YoungerThanTheyLook way too old to be high school students]]. That does not stop the nightmarish, monstrous details from looking magnificent, along with the beautiful landscapes.

* ContestedSequel: The film sequel is... not popular. There's a reason it hasn't gotten any adaptations in any other media.



* EnsembleDarkHorse: Takako Chigusa and Shinji Mimura.

* {{Sequelitis}}: ''Film/BattleRoyale 2: Requiem'', up to and including the hamfisted attempt to tie in the 9/11 attacks. The extended version, ''Battle Royale 2: Revenge'' is considered better than Requiem, though not to redeem the worst flaws. May be because there is only one novel, that doesn't go beyond the lore of the first movie.
