** The Japanese title of Chapter 1 is written in katakana and can be interpreted in a bunch of different ways, including "live to the fullest", "live to the end", "live and kill", and "use your abilities to the fullest", all of which are relevant to the chapter. Since English can't have that many meanings in a single phrase, Project Zetsubou titled the chapter "[[Film/LiveFreeOrDieHard Kill Free or Live Hard]]".

** Yasuhiro was in the "too bland" corner, but once he became a DeadpanSnarker and CloudCuckooLander, [[RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap people warmed to him considerably.]] Or sometimes, it just doesn't work, people are also quick to dislike him because of his outlandish, useless predictions, or how [[{{Jerkass}} he can be very unsavory]] behind the back, especially when it comes to his debts (And by that, we mean the likes of begging his friend to donate his organs so he can pay his own personal debt). Making matters worse, he apparently has a pretty good luck to survive a lot of deadly situations like this game, making people sometimes lament, '''"WHY ISN'T HE DEAD ALREADY!?"'''

** It's easy to feel this way about the victims of the game. In particular, one of the mid-game victims is killed shortly after seemingly taking on a fallen friend's spirit.

** In the Orenronen let's play that came out long before the game was localized, Monokuma's name was rendered in it as "Monobear" being that "kuma" means "bear." The official English translation left it as "Monokuma" by direct request of the Japanese writers. Despite this, numerous fanworks, fan translations, wiki entries, and other materials written by people who got into the series with Oren's let's play before the localization was out refer to him as "Monobear."

* IAmNotShazam: There seems to be some constant confusion as to whether or not Monokuma's name should be translated, rendering it "Monobear". The source of this confusion is unclear, as Monokuma is a name, names are generally not directly translated, and the official English translation intentionally leaves it as "Monokuma" by direct request of the Japanese writers; yet, despite this, numerous fanworks, fan translations, wiki entries, and other materials list him as "Monobear".

** Applies to the obscure manga adaptation of the anime, which, will it does include student details that the anime omitted, renders every scene this by the virtue of terrible artwork.

** Toko also gets this for painting purple prose about squick in general. She's also useless when it comes to getting information from unless you're Byakuya. She was RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap big time for a lot of people in the spin-off ''VideoGame/AbsoluteDespairGirls'', thanks to massive amounts of CharacterDevelopment by virtue of being one of the game's protagonists.

* SelfFanservice: Fanartists commonly draw [[NonStandardCharacterDesign Sakura]] with a face ''far'' more feminine than how it actually looks. At least it's generally rare for her muscles to be toned down. Though curiously, official art shows Sakura used to look VERY feminine [[http://media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m6eonzW2a61qb59nf.jpg before her rather dramatic change into "The Ogre"]]

* ShipsThatPassInTheNight: Kiyotaka and Mukuro is ship that is slowly growing in popularity, primarily among the Japanese fanbase. Neither of them have interacted in canon, or had any established connection with one another. Not to mention, Mukuro is all but stated to have feelings for Makoto. The most likely explanation for why may be due to their specific talents.

* VindicatedByHistory: The game has always been loved by the fans, but it was generally agreed by all parties that ''VisualNovel/SuperDanganRonpa2'' was an EvenBetterSequel. However, in later years, both ''Anime/DanganRonpa3'' and ''VisualNovel/NewDanganRonpaV3'' [[ContestedSequel came under heavy scrutiny from some fans]] (in point of fact, both entries in the series have their own BrokenBase pages), not helped by the events of ''[[Anime/DanganRonpa3 Side:Despair]]'' and ''[[Anime/DanganRonpa3 Side:Hope]]'' contradicting and outright [[{{Retcon}} retconning]] several events and details that were revealed in the second game. These controversial franchise directions has caused fans to step back and re-evaluate the first game, remembering what made it so beloved to begin with. Among the things it gets praise for are its very unpredictable "death order" (later entries started coming under fire for relying too much on [[StrictlyFormula specific scenarios and character archetypes]] for the sake of creating [[RecurringElement Recurring Elements]]) and having the best villain of the franchise (as covered above, Junko as she appears in this game was highly memorable, and attempting to showcase her rise to villainy eventually turned her into a BaseBreakingCharacter by the time ''Anime/DanganRonpa3'' rolled around). When it comes down to it, a lot of people look back a ''lot'' more fondly at this game these days, particularly as ''VisualNovel/NewDanganRonpaV3'' caught flak for relying on its StrictlyFormula habits yet again ('''especially''' in regards to [[spoiler: Kaede not being the real protagonist]]) when people were hoping that the series would finally mix things up.
