Fanfic / Kingdom Killing Life

Go To

Contains examples of:

  • Anyone Can Die: The murderers and victims are randomly chosen, so literally anyone can die sans the Main Character.
  • Alas, Poor Villain: For every murder, the murderers have had a (somewhat) legitimate reason to kill with maybe the exception of chapter three.
  • All for Nothing: In both chapter one and two so far where Inori's secret gets revealed and Siyon turns out to not be the traitor. Later in chapter four when Mariko fails to bring back Root and five when Daniel's elaborate suicide plan to kill everyone fails.

  • Arc Words: Hope and Despair.
  • Big Bad: In the form of Monokuma and later Kanon Takenaka.
  • Big Brother Is Watching: Monokuma has cameras set up all over the castle to watch the students.
  • Black Blood: Well, pink. This is to follow the style of Danganronpa.
  • Body of the Week: At least two people wind up dead every chapter.
  • Characters Dropping Like Flies: By the end of the story, only a few people are left standing.
  • Cruel and Unusual Death: In the form of the executions where the Psychologist, Inori, is played by his fears, the Seamstress, Kikuyu, is stabbed with a ton of sewing needles, the Runway Model, Jae-Eun, trips on her way down the aisle, and the Film Director, Mariko, gets smash in a movie screen.
  • Dark Secret: The motive for Chapter 1 consists of each student getting someone else's darkest secret. This leads to two murders out of paranoia and a lot of self-doubt leading to yet another murder.

  • Deadly Game: It's all just a game. A killing game.
  • Death by Irony: The executions.
  • Empty Chair Memorial: When a student dies, their seat at the courtroom is 'reserved' with a portrait of their face.
  • Fair-Play Whodunnit: Every student has an equal chance at finding information unless the killer has specifically disabled someone such as chapter four when Riko gets poisoned by the pie.
  • Gilded Cage: The castle is a closed area with no way out.
  • Gory Discretion Shot: Inori is never shown dying as the lights go out just before they're killed and Kikuyu is covered with a sheet.
  • I Just Write the Thing: As a CYOA, very few of the actions are predetermined.
  • Infinite Supplies: In the Banquet Hall, the food is always replenished and, later, the Storage Room has just about anything you could want.
  • Involuntary Battle to the Death: Well, it is a killing game.
