** Celestia Ludenberg can either be loved for her mysterious personality, design, and her accent in the English Dub, or hated for coming across as an AntiClimaxBoss who has a weak unsympathetic motive into killing somebody. However, some people that that said motive was a big lie and the manga did made her more sympathetic.

** The original Japanese title of Chapter 5 is "Despair Junk Food for a Dashing Youth", which is a reference to a LightNovel series called ''Shissou suru Shishunki no Parabellum'', meaning "Parabellum of Dashing Youth." Since English players wouldn't get this reference, the Project Zetsubou translation saw that "parabellum" came from the Latin phrase "Si vis pacem, para bellum," meaning "If you want peace, prepare for war," and made the title "If You Want Donuts, Prepare for Despair."

** The fact that Sakura was DrivenToSuicide. The poison powder on her shoes, the locked room murder aspect, and the fact that someone of her body mass had her corpse positioned to be sitting normally, were dead giveaways.

** Out of all the students, Kiyotaka gets the most love due to his {{Adorkable}} qualities, his [[LargeHam hamminess]], being one of the nicest characters in the game (they don't call him the "Ultimate Moral Compass" for nothing), and for his Woobie moments.



** A lot of people don't like Hifumi for being a stereotypical nerd, his perverted tendencies, the NoYay relationship between him and his crush [[ArtificialIntelligence Alter Ego]], killing off Taka who became one of the most popular characters in the game, and generally being unimportant for most of the plot. [[AlasPoorScrappy People still felt bad when he died, though]].

[[AlasPoorScrappy People still felt bad when he died, though]].



** Celeste gets quite the flack in the comments to the Website/SomethingAwful LetsPlay. Reasoning ranging from murdering two people with no regrets whatsoever and being an AntiClimaxBoss for someone deduced to be a "Ultimate Gambler" (she was called uncharacteristically OOC, being too "blatant" in "covering her crimes", so not living up to her title) and on top of that, her petty, one-dimensional motivation unlike Mondo (accident) and Leon (self-defense). However, this gets alleviated a bit since she's a ConsummateLiar, and even these unsympathetic motives could be just lies she spread, for reasons we probably will never know. And she is made more sympathetic in the manga and ''VideoGame/AbsoluteDespairGirls''.

** Byakuya tampering with Chihiro's body to make it look like Genocide Jack killed him. All he did was potentially sentence him and his classmates to death, knowing full-well that Genocide Jack has a very specific method of killing people.

** Celestia Ludenberg can either be loved for her mysterious personality, design and her accent in the English Dub, or hated for coming across as an AntiClimaxBoss who has weak motivations (though some people believe that her motivation was a lie).
** Byakuya Togami has some haters for his {{Jerkass}} tendencies as well as tampering with the crime scene in Chapter Two. He also has fans who like him for his AwesomeEgo and for his intelligence. In addition, some people believed that he ended up RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap by the end of the game by aligning with the students.

** For the second game, we have Hinata and Nanami or "Hinanami", since the game already provides a lot of Ship Tease.
** Hinata and Komaeda can be considered as the main HoYay for the game and just by typing their tags on tumblr you'll see a HELL LOT of their fan arts.
** Despite having little interaction in-game, Komaeda and Tsumiki, usually referred as "Komamiki" has dozens of loyal follower with huge amount of fan art dedicated to them in various websites.
** Sonia and Gundham gets a lot of love from the fans, too.

** Sayaka Maizono is pretty divisive too. Some like her and believe that even when she's '''not''' justified in attempting to murder Leon and framing Makoto, she did it upon being broken and pressured by Monokuma hitting her weakest spots. Others believe that she's just a self-serving murderer for the actions depicted above. Made worse that unlike Celeste and Leon, the manga section for her seemed to play her plot straightforward instead of giving her a slightly better AlternativeCharacterInterpretation, aside from confirming Kyoko's supposition that she left her DyingClue out of remorse instead of revenge.
*** It should be noted that Sayaka planned her murder and died without ever learning about the class trials. A circumstance that makes her unique to the rest of the characters who planned murder in the franchise.

In addition, some people believed that he ended up RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap by the end of the game by aligning with the students.
** Of the franchise as a whole, Nagito is probably the most divisive character out of everybody. He is either loved for being an interesting character due to his BlueAndOrangeMorality as well as providing a bit of HoYay for YaoiFangirls or hated for being a bit of an annoying SpotlightStealingSquad, being the only VisualNovel/SuperDanganRonpa2 character to appear in VideoGame/AbsoluteDespairGirls (other than Izuru) while others were hoping [[TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot to see the Remnants of Despair as their despair selves]], and getting Seiko, Andou, and Izayoi suspended from Hope's Peak Academy for an incident he caused in Anime/DanganRonpa3 while coming across as a bit of a {{Downplayed}} KarmaHoudini.
** Both of the "female detective" characters from both games (aka Kyoko and Chiaki) can received this. Either they are loved since the former comes across as a mysterious character while a lot of people found the latter to be a {{Moe}} character or they are hated as people accused both of them of being MarySue characters.
