Added DiffLines:

** Kaiba and Yami also count as per canon, but Gundham really just takes it UpToEleven.


Added DiffLines:

* LoveTriangle: Three currently exist in the fic and they're all type 3:
** Junko and Tea are competing for the affections of Yugi and Yami.
** Celeste and Mai have it out for Joey.
** Sayaka and Mukuro, the newest to the fray, are trying to get in Makoto's pants.


* ActuallyPrettyFunny: Mahiru unintentionally makes a joke by mentioning Celeste escaping into her own little world after she mentioned doing escape rooms and Hajime points out that it's actually kind of funny. Mahiru and the others in the scene end up agreeing and having a good laugh.



* MundaneMadeAwesome: While the duels themselves always qualify, special mention has to be given to the fighting game tournament finals between Chiaki and Eliza.
* MundaneSolution: While it's ambiguous if Gundham knew how Espa was cheating, or if he ''truly'' believes in his Hell imbued powers, the way he held his hand and the positioning of his hamsters on his body made it ''impossible'' for Espa's brothers to spy on him.

Added DiffLines:

** Celeste tries to play it off that she actually experienced the [[Franchise/ZeroEscape Nonary Game]] before Chiaki calls her out on it.
** Class 78's teacher at Hope's Peak remarks that she stayed up late the night before playing [[VideoGame/AITheSomniumFiles ShovelForge]].


* AscendedExtra: In canon, Espa was just a one-off opponent that Joey defeats and is never seen again afterwards. Here he actually makes it to the Battle City Finals after his initial loss to Gundham making him far more involved in the Battle City arc.
** An interesting case with Komaru who doesn't enact a major role until ''Another Episode''. In the story, she actually acts as Makoto's one-girl cheering section and we even get to see a sibling dynamic between the two.

He had the ''best'' intentions, but Junko may as well be [[Videogame/Earthbound Gygas]] for how hellish and incomprehensibly horrific her mind is never seen again afterwards. Here he actually makes it to the Battle City Finals after his initial loss to Gundham making him far more involved in the Battle City arc.

*** In addition, the Von Schroeder family is also mentioned confirming that they exist in this continuity.

*** In addition, the Von Schroeder family is also mentioned confirming that they exist in this continuity. And the Kaiba Corp Grand Prix arc, where they act as antagonists in the anime, explicity starts in chapter 101.


Added DiffLines:

** Serenity also counts to a lesser extent. Her dueling ability far exceeds what she was capable of in canon and her intellect is jacked up to the point that she can skip grades.


Added DiffLines:

** [[spoiler:Shadi appears to be the next fatality among the Yu-gi-oh cast. After [[AMindIsATerribleThingToRead attempting to invade Junko's mind and pacify her from her investigation into the Millennium Items]], he ends up dying inside her head to the hellish nightmare that it is]].

Added DiffLines:

** In chapter 94, Hajime's dad reveals that he [[VideoGame/FiveNightsAtFreddys used to work as a security guard for a pizza restaurant from midnight to 6am where the animatronics were trying to kill him]].
*** In the same declaration he mentions that at one point [[WebVideo/SwordArtOnlineAbridged he thought he saw the face of god, but it was just the night janitor]].

Added DiffLines:

** "[[spoiler:Izuru, is annoying]]" When ''[[AllLovingHero Chiaki]]'' is saying this about [[spoiler:her own son]], there is a ''big'' problem. Luckily, it gets solved right away...to an extent.

Added DiffLines:

** [[spoiler:Serenity reveals during chapter 95 that she's going to be attending Hope's Peak as a reserve course student, which was so shock inducing, it sent the fans into a frenzy]].
** At the end of chapter 96, Yugi states that he'll be [[spoiler:attending Hope's Peak Academy]]

Added DiffLines:

** Bandit Keith tries to slug Celeste after accusing her of cheating during the Canadian Nationals. He promptly gets led away by security.

Added DiffLines:

** Junko is quite fond of dropping ''Franchise/JoJosBizarreAdventure'' references. Especially Dio memes.


Although the series is currently doing arcs for the ‘’Franchise/YuGiOh’’ anime, there are plans to continue straight into the continuity of ''Franchise/{{Danganronpa}}'', including the killing game and all machinations thereof. (The current arc in progress is the FillerArc Waking the Dragons)

* ModernAUFic: Due to the nature of the crossover, the ''Yu-Gi-Oh!'' side of things fall into this. The original Yu-Gi-Oh! hints that the story takes place at around the mid to late 90s. Meanwhile however the time period in which this fic begins based on what has been give out in ''Danganronpa'' canon implies that this fic is set at around either the 2010s.

Added DiffLines:

* InsultBackfire: Bandit Keith calls Celeste a "princess" as a derogatory statement when he duels her during the Canadian Nationals arc. Celeste takes the comment literally, referring to her desire to have a castle of vampire butlers.

Added DiffLines:

** Chiaki and Hajime [[spoiler:having sex]] at the end of chapter 85 is probably one of the more heartwarming moments in the fanfic. Chapter 93 then shows the consequences of that moment by [[spoiler:Chiaki getting pregnant]].

Added DiffLines:

* RefugeInAudacity: Attempted by Chiaki only to be [[DefiedTrope defied]] by Yukizome in chapter 93. [[spoiler:Chiaki turns out to be pregnant with Hajime's baby as per the events of chapter 85 and when Yukizome asks Chiaki what was she thinking that sleeping with Hajime could have no consequences, Chiaki's response is "video game logic?". Yukizome's expression makes it clear that she's having none of Chiaki's shenanigans. And the cherry on top is that even Chiaki doesn't seem entirely convinced of her attempted use of this trope]].

Added DiffLines:

* CoolAndUnusualPunishment: At the end of the Orichalcos arc, [[spoiler:Yukizome makes Hiyoko clean the entire classroom as comeuppance for her FaceHeelTurn...with a ''toothbrush'']].

** In Chapter 93 Chiaki asks this question to Hajime:
---> So… Remember that night a few months ago after that whole thing with the Orichalcos?\\
'''Hajime:''' Of course I do, "I… ''[realizes what she means]'' Wait! Are you saying that—\\
'''Chiaki:''' Yeah. Mikan had me run four tests in a row. They all came back positive.
