Yukiko's True role in Sea of Tranquility
Fee5h, a commenter of, has developed a detailed and intricate theory concerning the Ultimate Chess Player, the crux of which is: she, a woman with a skill directed towards strategy and a lack of alibis for certain cases, is the true mind behind most if not all of the deaths in the killing game, having used Dylan as an accomplice and scapegoat for her actions of killing off their fellow Artificial Humans.
  • Apparently confirmed.

The primary antagonists resemble...
...the Espada from Bleach. While it is a far-fetched theory, it is something that might be worth sharing, though the resemblances are quite minor to say the least. To wit, from order of appearance:
  • Mastermind!Makoto and Tia Harribel. Both characters revolve around the concept of "sacrifice". For the latter, it's her aspect of death. A notable commonality is that Harribel shares many of his nicer personalities (like True Companions) before his Face–Heel Turn, and still manifests them even when sided with the villains, whereas Makoto discarded them upon his Start of Darkness. Harribel even has three Fraccion, as with how Makoto has three girls that he's romantically involved with (Mukuro, Aoi, Sayaka). For bonus points, they even share the same Japanese VA, Megumi Ogata.

  • Tsumugi and Zommari Rureaux. It's quite minor, but both do have their bouts of pride. Tsumugi is more concerned about winning and obeying Junko Enoshima, though she's Locked Out of the Loop, though she believes she's just as important as the rest of them. Zommari hides his Not So Stoic attitude behind a stoic personality, though the cosplayer's stoicism simply comes from good acting.
  • Ringo and Coyote Starrk. Both are expert marksmen and both share some interpretation of their respective themes (isolation); Ringo is a psychopath suffering from Antisocial Personality Disorder, giving him a hard time forming relationships with others, whereas isolation is what drives Coyote to join with the rest of the Espada. In essence, however, Ringo could possibly be an Evil Counterpart to Coyote, lacking any of the latter's redeeming values and simply indulging in his lone wolf scenario. By virtue, he's far darker than any of the antagonists that came before him, whereas Coyote is the nicer of the Espada; virtually opposites to each other.
  • Dylan and Grimmjow Jaegerjaquez.
    • Yukiko subverts this by not being based on the Espada, but based on Sosuke Aizen himself.
  • Depending on your interpretation, Junko or Monaca and Nnoitra Gilga.
  • Dolly and Ulquiorra Cifer.
  • Jibo and Szayelaporro Grantz.
  • Oasis and subsequent entries may or may not have finished, though there's a possibility that the next three entries would have had characters based off Barragan, Aaroniero, and Llargo.

Madison Maddox will eventually meet the Future Foundation and the survivors of the first Killing Game
After escaping from the first Killing Game, the surviving students have joined the Future Foundation and are currently working to rescue the OC Ultimates from the other Killing Games like the Sea of Tranquility, Kuma Kuma Land and House of Horrors. Maddie was the first of these Ultimates to escape, and she got into an escape pod. The Future Foundation will contact her and guide her to their headquarters. If she manages to arrive safely, she'll tell them about her experience in the Killing Game and she will eventually join up with technological geniuses Kazuichi, Chihiro and Miu to make transports to retrieve the trapped students and send them back home. Kokichi's mission is to put an end to his father Jibo, so he will be the one who leads the rescue mission and puts an end to his father's atrocities once and for all.

Gundham Tanaka will be revived in HoH as the Ultimate Devil
Think about it. The character
Gundham is closest to, Sonia, was revived as the Ultimate Angel. So why not do the same for Gundham, but with his talent fitting his motif? Plus Teleios is there.

  • Seemingly been Jossed as Gundham's spirit made a cameo and talked with Teleios and Sonia.

If the Original Characters had voice actors like the main franchise
The Danganronpa franchise typically has an All-Star Cast of famous seiyuu and dub voice actors, so here are my picks:

Final Horizon:

Sea of Tranquility
Kuma Kuma Land
House of Horrors

If the Original Characters had an English Cast:

Final Horizon

Sea of Tranquility

Kuma Kuma Land

House of Horrors
