As in the Danganronpa Visual Novels, a group of elite students, each possessing a talent considered to be incredibly vast for their age, find themselves trapped inside a twisted mockery of Hope's Peak Academy by Monobear. Forced into a mutual killing game, they're presented with various motives to murder their peers, then ordered to investigate the crimes to try and determine who is responsible.
But there's something different this time around; Monobear is a little more sadistic in this alternate universe. Now the students must face irony and dark humor that Monobear refers to as "Comedy Gold". The students must find the culprit of the murders so they can save themselves from all being executed.
Either they fight 'til the end or figure out who's controlling that sadistic honey eating bastard. Who's really behind the bear? The mastermind must be living with them, but who could it possibly be? Who could arrange such a sick and twisted dark comedy for their own amusement? Will they figure out who's behind the bear, or will it be too late for this poor student body? It's time to go for the gold!
Good as gold tropes that appear in this academy:
- A House Divided: The Student Body.
- Always Murder: Whether it's homocide, suicide, or accidental, it's bound to happen.
- Anyone Can Die: Seriously dude, it's a Danganronpa Roleplay. What did you expect?
- Black Comedy: That's the premise of the story. Especially with some of those executions.
- Cruel and Unusual Death: The executions.
- Deadly Game: Gee, I wonder what that means...
- Murder Has Never Been So Much Fun: The most fun you can have murdering your fellow classmates...LEGALLY!!!!
- Teenagers Forced to Kill: If they want to leave, they will have to kill someone and not get caught. The only other option (aside from finding the mastermind) is to stay there for the rest of their lives.
- Kangaroo Court
