* FragileFlower: Naoko cries a lot during the story and is noted to be overly sensitive.


Added DiffLines:

* ProneToTears: Naoko cries a lot during the story and is noted to be overly sensitive.

Added DiffLines:

* [[spoiler: BungledSuicide: During chapter four. Miyuki tries to kill herself so she won't fall into despair and become Kaneshiro's pawn. However, this fails, causing Namia to be forced to kill her.]]


Added DiffLines:

* LadyOfWar: Due to her talent, Miyuki has seen a lot of battles. She is also a calm woman, who is beautiful enough to become Satoshi's main target of affection. [[spoiler: Miyuki has also been in a family war, where she was one of the only survivors.]]


Added DiffLines:

* NotSoStoic: [[spoiler: All over the place in chapter four. Not only is she in a loving secret relationship with Namita, Miyuki shows that she can get pissed off as well. She also tried to kill herself to stop falling into despair but that did not work.]]


* AntiHero: Akita is not exactly the best person. She has a bad habit of punching people and making things way harder than they have to be in the game.



* [[spoiler: AndIMustScream: When Natsumi used the coding of the program to take control of Hotaru's body. She was forced to cause things such as Hayato's almost death. Unlike most cases of this trope, however, Hotaru does get better.]]
* [[spoiler: RevengeBeforeReason: When Hotaru kills Natsumi. If Natsumi was alive, Hotaru would have learned many more things, such as the truth behind the deaths of Ayano and Takara, as not even Junko and Kaneshiro know the full truth.]]
* [[spoiler: TookALevelInCynic: Because of the continued abuse that Kaneshiro forces her to go through during the story, Hotaru becomes more and more jaded. What really pushes her into cynicism, however, is when Natsumi forced control over her own body. Hotaru didn't react to all the things that he did while using her very well.]]



*** [[spoiler: After the events of the fourth trial, Ayano is hinted to have Acute Stress Disorder than is turning into severe PTSD. She even has flashbacks and panic attacks.]]

* [[spoiler: AntiHero: Even though Ayano is trying to do good things, sometimes her morals can be called into question. The most obvious is when she tries to kill or attack (it is up to the reader what she really was planning) Kaneshiro after figuring out he is Atsuto. This causes the deaths of Ayano and Takara, which could have been avoided easily.

Added DiffLines:

** [[spoiler: You thought that was bad? How about the entire events of chapter four? Even before the trial, he was psychologically torturing Ayano and had somebody literally shoot her in the back since she wasn't behaving as he wanted her to.]]
*** [[spoiler: Then, dear lord, the trial. Hayato, being the leader of the students who didn't investigate, now wants to not be part of the trial itself. Monokuma then gives him a box with Mirabilis's head. This does not stop the others from trying to protect Namita from her own execution, however.]]

Added DiffLines:

* [[spoiler: CruelAndUnusualDeath: At first, Namita's execution doesn't seem as bad as some of the others, with her being stabbed in the heart. But then the robots don't stop stabbing her. Its unknown how long they continued, it could have been minutes or even days.]]
