The gang's all here... For now.

"Of course. The situation is: We seem to have been locked into Hope's Peak Academy. No one remembers anything else."
Kageida Mattou sums up the situation rather accurately.

Super Dangan Ronpa Zero is a Forum Role Play on Ace Attorney Online created by Enigma.

Super Dangan Ronpa Zero is set in an alternate universe of the game it's based off, Dangan Ronpa. It follows the exact same premise as the original, albeit with new characters, locations, murders and interactions.

The RP was abandoned in 2014 while in the middle of Chapter 4.

Super Dangan Ronpa Zero contains examples of:

  • Aerith and Bob: The names are mostly Japanese in origin, or at least western in the case of Sylvie, Amy, and Marvin, but "Zodiak Kenward" and "Risala Mavika" stand out as rather bizarre names.
  • Alcohol-Induced Idiocy: This happens in the Infirmary after Suzuno becomes highly intoxicated.
  • Always Murder: Mainly because Monobear demands it. Suicide and accidental manslaughter also count as murder in his book.
  • Big Bad Friend: Not only the fact that one person per chapter is a murderer, one of them is the mastermind behind everything.
  • Big Red Button: Monobear's got one that he uses to start the executions.
  • Big Word Shout: Only once so far, as a callback to the original games, in the first trial Kageida bursts out with the well known "You've got that wrong!"
  • Buddy Cop Show: The first chapter kind-of became this with the duo of the sarcastic, bored Kageida and the shy, jumpy Kaito becoming the detectives.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: Not as many as you would think, but there are a few. A notable one would be Kame Kurosawa, the film director who sees everything as a film and Yutaka Uezama, who acts out his lines during the school trial for aforementioned film director. But even the relatively sane and normal characters have a few moments like when Akai thinks that the sleeping pills were chewing gum in the first trial.

  • Couldn't Find a Pen: Marvin Burns leaves behind a dying message, "three cat claws", drawn in his own blood.
  • Covert Pervert: Monobear has an, um, interesting choice of words. But then there's Zodiak whose very first concern after being locked in the school is repopulation. Needless to say, they are both adamantly deny this.
  • Cool Shades: Zodiak Kenward's official art. Comes with being a SHSL Bodyguard.
  • In-Series Nickname: Pedokuma, by Emi Kasumi, stemming from Monobear's apparent creepiness.
  • Hidden Villain: According to the hidden message Seikakuna came across at the end of Chapter One the one behind Monobear is one of the students.
  • Kleptomaniac Hero: Kaito Noboru, as a SHSL Thief, is literally a kleptomaniac.
  • Lampshaded Double Entendre: Everytime a double entendre appears, you can bet Emi will point it out.
  • Leitmotif: Monobear's Extracuricular Lesson.
  • Malicious Misnaming: "It's Monobear, not Pedokuma!"
  • Mood Whiplash: Fun pool party scene? Not if Monobear has anything to say about it.
  • Mythology Gag: Numerous things, including the paintings in the Photo Gallery and Akai's book, reference the original DR games.
  • Nobody Poops: Subverted exactly once when Zodiak goes and takes a leak. Most of the time, despite there being bathrooms, the cast is happy to just avoid their, ahem, bowels.
  • Ontological Mystery: Kind of. They know where they are but can't really remember how they got there.
  • Paranormal Investigation: Michio Ogami is a famous paranormal investigator by trade.
  • Power of Trust: Constantly brought up by the characters. Especially Michio and Akai who talk about it non-stop. Of course, this won't work if Monobear has anything to say about it.
  • Pungeon Master: Not as bad as his original counterpart, but Monobear still gets a few bear puns in.
  • Real Life Writes the Plot: The reason that Risala Mavika murdered Marvin Burnswas that her writer couldn’t continue posting for a while due to personal reasons.
