General Memes:

  • "YOU'VE GOT THAT WRONG!" Explanation 
    • "YOU MUST NOT LOSE HOPE!" Explanation 
    • Advertisement:
    • "I KINDA DOUBT THAT!" Explanation 
  • "JUNKOS" Explanation 
    • In the original form:
      Yasuhiro: 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 as it became increasingly likely, and had gotten stale. The LP thread of the sequel banned anyone referencing it. Today, the meme has been used less often, to the point where some of the newer fans of the series never actually heard of the meme before.
    • Hilarious in Hindsight: The funniest part of the whole thing? Junko did switch places with another student — her twin sister. The JUNKOS theory was right.
    • It gets better: even though the LP of Super Danganronpa 2 banned 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.

    • When Danganronpa Another Episode: Ultra Despair Girls and Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony were announced, there was a lot of joke speculation about Junko somehow managing to be the secret mastermind yet again, usually as a ghost/cyborg/cardboard cutout/what have you. (Nope, she's fully dead, although both villains are essentially trying to recreate her.)
  • "Dangly Rope," "Dongo Bongo," "Diamond Rumpus," "Dangit Grandpa," "Danger Roomba," "Deadly Rump Roast," "Dangling Grandpas," "Doodoo Ricecake," "Donkey Ron Paul"... Explanation 
    Monokuma: However, even though it was called Company S, it wasn't actually the four-sided one... It was a company that's famous for lots of reasons called Spice Chunsoft! Ah, oops...Spice Chunsoft? Space Chincraft? Oh well.
    Monokuma: And that's how I got in Danganrupaul! Ah, oops...Doggoneronpaul? Oh well.
  • Making jokes about Byakuya and his ridiculous amounts of money. He is often depicted in fanon as having a Money Fetish, so often that it makes the fandom seem to forget that Byakuya isn't actually like that in canon.
    • Speaking of Byakuya, some people joke that tampering with crime scenes is a favorite hobby of his, given the events of Chapter 2.
