Danganronpa Another Episode: Ultra Despair Girls
- "Yasu is the culprit!" is scowled on the title screen.
- Toko's method of using her stun gun makes it look like she's conjuring her persona.
- One of Jack's specials resembles the Spirit Bomb.
- Jack makes a reference to Giri Giri Girls, a risqué Japanese pop group.
- Byakuya's butler's name is Aloysius Pennyworth.
- A Monokuma in Masaru's room is posed in front of a soccer goal using the God Hand.
- Kotoko straps up Komaru at one point, and attempts to tickle her into submission. She even refers to it as Motivation, and the minigame is heavily reminiscent of those minigames.
- In '"Ultra Despair Hagakure'', when Kotoko starts molesting Kanon with her portable motivation machine, she excitedly says she can't wait for Kanon to Mega Evolve into enjoying it, saying those two words as shown.
- During the final boss, Toko quips "Is this old lady out of touch? No, it's the children who are wrong."
- The arcade machines' surroundings are quite clearly The Black Lodge.
Danganronpa S: Ultimate Summer Camp
- Genocide Jack has tally marks cut into her skin to count her victims, just like Victor Zsasz.
- Norman's Hotel is a fairly obvious reference to Psycho.
- Several characters seem modeled on the characters of mystery writer Ranpo Edogawa. Shinsen is akin to the Fiend of Twenty Faces, Ryuuzouji has a number of similarities to Akechi Kogoro and Lico is a Kid Detective with effeminate looks who pursues mysteries out of curiosity, much like Yoshio Kobayashi.
- Starting off, Byakuya's biography is named Journey to the Midnight Sun, a reference to the well-known Japanese mystery novel. Blue Ink even ensures the reader it isn't the same book.
- Sonia's introduction has her directly refer to Ecchi manga Harehachi Gauken.
- Hiroyuki makes references to both JoJo's Bizarre Adventure and Haruki Murakami while rescuing Byakuya.
- While talking to Aoba, the Hikikomori makes reference to Where the Wild Things Are as his favorite book.
- The climax to the first volume explicitly discusses The Complete Manual of Suicide in reference to the Despair Book.
- Hijirihara makes Asano recite several stock phrases from The Kindaichi Case Files to unnerve the first culprit. Turns out his grandfather was a fan.
