* AdaptationalNameChange: Takes the Orenronen translation of his name instead of "Monokuma".



* YouSaidYouWouldLetThemGo: In ''Reloaded'', he makes a deal with [[spoiler: Aiko]] to keep her out of the killing game if [[TheMole they became the spy of their session]]. However, when this exchange is brought up again near the end of the third trial, Monobeear simply shrugs and says that he doesn't recall such a statement.

Added DiffLines:

* ImprobableAge: A lot of them have accomplished feats that would be unheard of for people their age. Comes with being a Hope's Peak student.


* PowerTrio: At least one in every game, with the more prominent examples being a case of TwoGirlsAndAGuy, an inversion of the source material's trios. The first game had Miwa, Junpei and Kaori as the main trio [[spoiler:and this was show they were positioned in the sequel]], with Kiyoyuki, Miya, and Ozu for ''Reloaded''.

* NebulousEvilOrganisation: The Mastermind tried to frame the Foundation as such in the first game, and did a decent job of it. Subverted as we see that they're just as good as their canon counterparts.

* DepravedBisexual: Even though he ends up forcing everyone to kill, he often makes comments on how attractive they are and their relations to other inmates sometimes. Most notable in Chapter 3 of the first session, when he makes a joke about how the three victims of the Chapter could be in a Boy Band if they wanted because of their looks.

* LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters: At least 16 per session. Even then, there are mentions of side characters in some of the inmates' backstories and even character cameos from other sessions due to circumstance (ex. personal interaction, word of mouth information, [[spoiler:simultaneous sessions]]...)

Added DiffLines:

* TeenGenius: In some shape or form, all of them are this in their area of expertise. It's expected when you're accepted to a place as prestigious as Hope's Peak.


* GenderEqualEnsemble: All games have about the same number of males to females. When the non-binary players get thrown into the mix in ''Reloaded'', it's downplayed; while the boys and girls are still equal, they have larger demographics than the non-binary players (at 7 each to 2 total).

''Rewind'' makes ''all'' the groups unequal, given the presence of 8 boys to 7 girls to 1 non-binary.


* AllCrimesAreEqual: He may not implement this rule into murder motives, but he certainly does nitpick when it comes to small crime. Case in point, if he sees someone shoplifting, [[DIsproportionateRetribution he'll execute them just as swiftly and mercilessly as he would any other "Blackened" student]].

* IGaveMyWord: DoubleSubverted. Early on in Chapter 4 he said that he'd let the inmates look for the answers they wanted if, and ''only'' if 7 people were left in the prison. By this time, they had the exact numbers he was looking for. However, Monobear pointed out that ''eight'' people were left in the building- themselves, [[LoopholeAbuse and the Mastermind]], so the Mutual Killings would go on as planned. Surprisingly, after the fourth execution, Monobear really does open up the rest of the prison for the rest of the inmates to explore.

* TheGhost: No one besides Etsuko was ever mentioned during the inmates' stay in prison, and they never seem to find any other members than her. They do find some old files and a Foundation member's jacket in there, though that could also be Etsuko's.

[[spoiler: ''Reloaded'' reveals that the other Foundation members made to watch over them were ''also'' given amnesia and locked away on the other side of the facility.]]



* TheReveal: It turns out the cast of ''Reloaded'' were part of the Foundation as well, and they helped manage the "At Risk" students of the first game.

Added DiffLines:

* HereWeGoAgain: Even if they're under new management, what gave them the bright idea to reopen Hope's Peak, ''especially'' given that damn near all of the tragedy that took place over the last couple of years was primarily their doing? However, they have no mentions of a Reserve course and aren't doing any experiments on the students, so it might turn out for the better this time around.


* TokenEvilTeammate: Etsuko. For more on her, see the Spoilers section of the first game's page.




to:

* ShoutOut: The company is deliberately named after the Parasol Pharmeceuticals of the ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil'' universe. And just like their namesake, they dabble in radioactivity research as well.


* BewareTheSillyOnes: It's a general rule not to mess with him even though he, for the most part, does nothing but monitor the kids, fool around and [[{{Troll}} do things to intentionally piss people off]]. But if someone were to challenge him, make no mistake, he ''will'' give them exactly what they came there for. [[spoiler: Kyo]] of ''Reloaded''

Most notable in Chapter 3 of the first session, when he makes a joke about how the three victims of the Chapter could be in a Boy Band if they wanted because of their looks.
* TheGadfly: If there's a particularly damning piece of information about an inmate that he knows about, he'll mock the unfortunate victim about it. Generally, most of the things he says to the inmates is just to piss them off or motivate them into murder.
* GatlingGood: He has a couple of them set up around the prison in the ''First Session'' in case anyone got any smart ideas about leaving, but he only ever activated one when he witnesses one of the inmates [[AllCrimesAreEqual forgetting to pay for a pack of candy]].
* {{GMPC}}: Whoever's monitoring the RP session usually takes the role of him.

* {{Jerkass}}: Wouldn't be Monobear if he wasn't.
* KillerTeddyBear
* LegacyCharacter: Seeing as though Monobear is only controlled by whoever is the Mastermind of the game, and the fact that the sessions take place after the formation of [[spoiler: the Future Foundation]], it's safe to assume that the person controlling Monobear is ''not'' [[BiggerBad Junko Enoshima]].
* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: Monobear is usually pretty adamant about not actually touching the inmates when he executes them. Even during a Monodeath, he usually uses whatever equipment that's nearest in order to dispatch the unlucky rule-breaker (as was unfortunately the case with [[spoiler: Ryouta]]). This is why [[spoiler: out and out beating Kyo of ''Reloaded'' into nothing but bloody giblets]] is so ''wrong''.
* RedAndBlackAndEvilAllOver
* SadisticChoice: Tends to do this a lot:
** In the First Session, he presented the inmates with a toxic gas that would slowly kill them within a couple of hours. They had the option of killing one of their own to make the gases stop, or they could look for one of the antidotes hidden around the place- of which there were 5. [[invoked]][[FridgeHorror There were 9 people in prison at the time.]]
** Remember how in the original ''Danganronpa'', Monobear just showed videos of their loved ones to get their murderous engines running? In ''Reloaded'', he doesn't even indirectly threaten them; he outright threatens to flood a given inmate's room provided no one start the killing game.
* YouSaidYouWouldLetThemGo: In ''Reloaded'', he makes a deal with [[spoiler: Aiko]] to keep their loved ones safe if [[TheMole they became the spy of their session]]. However, when this exchange is brought up again near the end of the third trial, Monobeear simply shrugs and says that he doesn't recall such a statement.

[[WMG: The Future Foundation]]
* BaitAndSwitch: The last leg of the RP had clues leading up the possibility that the Future Foundation was the one who put them in the prison, with most of the evidence being observational studies and notes from the other students. In fact, the inmates eventually discover that a Future Foundation member was the one who sent them to prison to monitor them! The ''real'' problem lies in the fact that the Foundation didn't authorize the collective murder of at least 9 students. ''Someone'' must have been off their rocker over there...
* BigGood: Reforming and monitoring "At-Risk" ex SHSL Despair members will give one that reputation.

* WellIntentionedExtremist: Taking the remnants of SHSL Despair and getting rid of their memories was their way of trying to rehabilitate them. One could only assume that they were going to to at least imprison the "At-Risk" kids if they showed more signs of turning.
