** Sonia herself, too. A high-school aged princess from a foreign kingdom who's [[FunnyForeigner rather naive when it comes to idioms, innuendos, and certain commonplace customs]], has the ability to learn languages with ease, speaks in an incredibly polite (and occasionally awkward) manner, tries to see the best in everyone yet is a huge proponent of justice when push comes to shove, and finds herself attracted to the resident [[BroodingBoyGentleGirl Brooding Boy]]? Sounds a hell of a lot like [[WesternAnimation/TeenTitans Starfire]] to this troper!

** Chiaki's pep talk to Hajime during the climax of the game is eerily similar to the climatic conversation between [[spoiler: Ultimate]] Madoka and Homura in the last episode of ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'', to the point that certain lines could be swapped out with each other and only the most ardent fans of both would notice the difference. Now, seeing as how this falls under hilarious rather than simply heartwarming, you get three guesses as to [[Creator/ChristineMarieCabanos who]] delivers both speeches in their respective English dubs - and the first two guesses don't count.

** Was Makoto putting the Remnants of Despair in the Neo World program the best possible outcome, done with their consent, or was he violating their free will by forcefully erasing their memories and basically turning them to become the very thing they oppose? Do his good intentions justify erasing memories and locking people in a scenario that shapes them as he sees fit, something eerily reminiscent of what Junko did in the previous game?

** In the Japanese fandom, Junko Enoshima/Izuru Kamukura, given their history as both being Ultimate Despair members and that they're the [[BigBadDuumvirate main antagonists of this game]]. However this ship causes more division than the others since fans debate on what exactly was their relationship was as [[FoeYay Izuru clearly states he wants to take revenge on Junko]], how devoted Izuru was to Junko based on the implications he became [[TheDragon her right hand man]] after she killed Mukuro despite the above point, and if Junko viewed him any differently than how she saw the rest of her Ultimate Despairs since her relationship with Mikan is typically seen as Junko manipulating her making forming any romantic attachments to anyone after [[SingleTargetSexuality Matsuda's]] death highly unlikely.

** Though she does have a sympathetic backstory and a FreudianExcuse in that she grew up being told that her job was to protect Fuyuhiko at all costs and was his tool, Peko was still willing to murder Mahiru in cold blood and send everyone else down with her, only her plan fell through because Fuyuhiko couldn't condemn his innocent people to be killed in his place. Peko even tells everyone else she never really felt anything towards anything to the group and only acted like their friend under Fuyuhiko's orders.

** A comparatively minor example occurs with Ibuki. She has a stitch running down most of her left thigh, which fan art tends to omit.

Added DiffLines:

** How genuine is Sonia's crush on Gundham? The two barely interact with each other prior to Chapter 4 and though Gundham gets flustered when Sonia compliments him, is that because it's coming from her or because he's just not used to receiving positive attention? He becomes friendly with Hajime during his free time supports so it's possible it's a case of BecauseYouWereNicetoMe. Meanwhile Sonia goes from barely talking with him to outright begging Monokuma to spare his life and acting like a cheerleader during the fourth trial. She seems fascinated by Gundham's "evil overlord" behaviour, which is noted to be an act of his to combat his own loneliness and protect himself, so is she ironically LovingAShadow like Kazuichi's crush on her?

** Also a case of SomeAnvilsNeedToBeDropped due to the belief that SchoolBullyingIsHarmless, which is what was the most common form of bullying described here, as it is a largely high-school based setting and is about teenagers.

** Also This is very much a case of SomeAnvilsNeedToBeDropped SomeAnvilsNeedToBeDropped, however, due to the belief that SchoolBullyingIsHarmless, which is what was especially in Japan (where the most common form of bullying described here, as it is a largely high-school based setting and is about teenagers.game takes place).


Added DiffLines:

*** His DeathSeeker tendencies and desire to become a symbol of hope through dying also take on some horrifically tragic undertones once you realize that the post-diagnosis life expectancy of someone with FTD is only 2-15 years.

* CounterpartComparison: The most popular OneTrueThreesome is between a guy likes wearing purple, fancy's himself an aspiring villain who fights with magic, has streaks in his hair (most prominently on his forelock), and wears a scarf, a sweet-tempered princess who has a surprising love for what most consider horrifying, and a guy who wears yellow, switches between moods at the drop of a hat, has a lot of shark-like teeth, and is great at fixing things for those around him. Now who does one think of first: Gundham, Sonia, and Kazuichi, or [[Webcomic/{{Homestuck}} Eridan, Feferi, and Sollux]]?

* MagnificentBastard: Whatever you think of Nagito, it's hard to deny that his plan during chapter 5 was really clever, and only gets revealed in its full form in the last chapter. Essentially, in chapter 4, he found out that everyone, including himself, are part of the Ultimate Despair, and Chiaki being the traitor (so in this case, ''the only good guy'') and an NPC, changing his view of them all. That's why he plots a suicude that was meant to be difficult to solve...no, scratch that, a ''supposed'' suicude with many [[RedHerring Red Herrings]] with the real cause of death being poison inside a fire grenade, unknowingly thrown by the other survivors (to put out a fire that erupted at the time) in order to confuse them on who actually killed him. Nagito, being Nagito, relied on his Ultimate Luck talent and hoped for the traitor to throw the correct bottle, aka Chiaki. Then it's revealed in the last chapter he wasn't trying to kill Chiaki, but everyone ''besides'' Chiaki, whom wasn't real and was part of the virtual game. He intentionally confused everyone so they could vote for the wrong person and get them all killed...because of them being Ultimate Despair. It's up to debate whether he went through with this plan for the greater good, to spite Junko even in death, or for his own warped sense of the word "hope", but one thing is certain; his plan went off almost without a hitch and he succeeded in outsmarting everyone even in death.

That's why he plots a suicude AI designed to positively influence everyone else. Deciding that was meant everyone but Chiaki deserves to be difficult die, he sets himself up to solve...no, scratch that, die in a ''supposed'' suicude supposed suicide littered with many [[RedHerring Red Herrings]] with {{Red Herring}}s. He ''also'' intentionally rigs the real room to catch fire--his actual planned cause of death being is poison inside gas hidden in a fire grenade, unknowingly unwittingly thrown by one of the other survivors (to put out a fire others. Even though the group solves Nagito's trap during the trial down to the letter, it's still impossible to know who ''actually'' threw the poison grenade. Eventually the group reasons that erupted at the time) in order to confuse them on who actually killed him. Nagito, being Nagito, relied on his Nagito's Ultimate Luck talent and hoped for would logically cause the traitor to throw the correct bottle, aka Chiaki. Then it's revealed in bottle...but they still can't guess ''who that is.'' Chiaki choosing to reveal herself is the last chapter he wasn't trying to kill Chiaki, but only reason everyone ''besides'' Chiaki, whom wasn't real and was part of the virtual game. He intentionally confused else lives. While chapter 6 later reveals that Nagito intended for everyone so they could vote for to guess wrong--his Ultimate Luck just happened to work at the wrong person time--there's no denying that, even if Nagito's idea of "hope" is terrifying and get them all killed...because of them being Ultimate Despair. It's up deadly, he managed to debate whether he went through create a truly unsolvable mystery with this plan for the greater good, to spite Junko even in death, or for his own warped sense of the word "hope", but one thing is certain; his plan went off almost without a hitch and he succeeded in outsmarting everyone even in death.
