Memes: Danganronpa
Please add entries in the following format:
  • The meme. [[labelnote:Explanation]]The explanation behind the meme.[[/labelnote]] Explanation 

General Memes:

  • "Super High-School Level ____", based off the titles for all the students.
  • "JUNKOS", riffing off an Ancient Aliens meme and parodying the Something Awful thread's increasingly insane Wild Mass Guessing with a macro showing Hagakure offering this as a catch-all explanation. The origin is an Epileptic Tree stating that Junko Enoshima has a Backup Twin due to their sudden death in Chapter 1, despite their character not being very well established, in contrast to Maizono's death.
    • In the original form:
      Hagakure: Now, I'm not saying it was Junko, but it was Junko.
    • Discredited Meme: However, people eventually grew tired of it, since it was used increasingly near the end of the LP, whether seriously or jokingly before it was confirmed to be true, and had gotten stale. The LP thread of the sequel now bans anyone referencing it.
    • Hilarious in Hindsight: The funniest part of the whole thing? Enoshima did switch places with another student - her twin sister. The JUNKOS theory was right.
      • It gets better: even though the LP of Super Dangan Ronpa 2 is banning any references to the meme the game ends up referencing it instead since the Big Bad of the game is an AI based on Junko whose goal is to upload herself into the bodies of all the deceased students after the survivors "graduate" and ultimately take over the world by turning everyone into JUNKOS. Yes even after Junko died (for real this time) they STILL managed to be behind everything, and making others act as her doppelgangers is STILL the punch line of this joke. Bonus points since the name of her backup twin means "Corpse" and now she's using literal corpses to preform essentially the same purpose.
  • Referring to the game by roughly equivalent-sounding, nonsensical combinations of English words is a minor meme in the Tumblr segment of the fanbase that spawned as a result of people having trouble remembering the game's title. "Dangly Rope," "Dingaling Rumpus," "Dangit Grandpa," "Danger Roomba," "Deadly Rump Roast," "Doodoo Ricecake," "Donkey Ron Paul"... one could go on. See Fan Nickname. It has since died down, however.
  • Making jokes about Togami and his ridiculous amounts of money. His love of money is usually played up as an extreme obsession in fanon.
    • Speaking of Togami, some people joke that tampering with crime scenes is a favorite hobby of his, given the events of Chapter 2.
    • It's also a common joke to have Togami about to say something to the cast, only to turn to Naegi and say, "Tell them, Naegi," given his tendency to make the player do all the work actually answering questions in the various cases despite very likely having every idea what the answers are.

  • In one scene where Naegi looks horrifically at a TV screen showing the outside world, people pasted several different pictures on the TV screen, such as something else that is horrifying or a Take That. Something Awful's paywall screen is a popular choice.

  • A description of Owada's sauna scene: "Owada pumped up and ready to party." Can be replaced with any other character.
