Darker And Edgier:
, especially near the end, contained exceptional (and at times extremely gruesome) violence, sexual undertones (along with one or two implied scenes), a sub-plot about a lesbian and her homophobic father, a character whose mother is implied (and confirmed by Dino Attack RPG Word of God) to be a prostitute, extreme sexism, implied genocide, drugs (including an overdose), child abuse ( and the man responsible gets away with it) characters who explicitly smoked and/or consumned alcohol, post-traumatic stress disorder, philosophical discussions, two characters with sub-plots concerning their religious faith, Body Horror, an unstoppable Eldritch Abomination on an almost Lovecraftian scale capable of destroying the planet and possibly the entire universe if it were to ever get out... and did I mention that this was all based entirely on a short-lived LEGO theme?
is already dark, but Dangan Ronpa takes it even further thanks to a few key differences. Unlike in canon, where convicting the wrong person equals Doubt Academy Game Over, here Monobear simply tells them they got it wrong before executing the innocent scapegoat. This creates a Kangaroo Court atmosphere where classmates have already lynched someone they knew was innocent to keep them from taking revenge and others have offered themselves up as Senseless Sacrifices to keep their friends from suffering the same fate.
