    • The game takes place at a summer camp rather than a school.
    • The killer can kill up to three people rather than the usual two.
    • Instead of arranging comic book panels in the correct order, the reconstruction involves playing as that chapter's killer and identifying each of their actions.
  • Dying Clue: The dying message written by the Chapter 1 victim. Subverted as it turns out that the killer wrote the message in order to frame Angela.
  • Shout-Out: During the first class trial, after Monokuma clarifies that only the person who delivers the final blow would be considered the culprit, two of the students question what would happen if two people stabbed and killed someone at the exact same time, or if someone grabbed the hand of another person holding a weapon and used that to stab someone.

  • Switching P.O.V.: The game starts with Kim's perspective before switching to Marie for the investigation and class trial of Chapter 1. Kim returns as the focus for the following chapter.
  • Tempting Fate: In Chapter 2, a few characters discuss their strategies for surviving the Killing Game, with the idea of safety in numbers being brought up more than once, as they figure nobody would be able to kill someone in a large group. The second murder happens while most of the cast is gathered in one location, with everyone present witnessing the second victim's death.
