A new cast of Ultimates means a whole new killing game.
Sixteen students and a homeroom teacher of Bitokukawa Academy find themselves in a "Killing School Festival", where everyone has a good time until someone is killed.

Danganronpa Kill/Cure is an upcoming fan-made Danganronpa Visual Novel created by Moboxer. Done in web video format, it aims to emulate the feel and aesthetics of previous titles while not having anything to do with the original canon continuity.

Tropes in Danganronpa Kill/Cure include:

  • Adapted Out: Mini-games will be omitted in favor of a new trial segment called Rebuttal Blitzkrieg, a more dynamic variation of Rebuttal Showdown.
  • All There in the Manual: The creator has a Tumblr page containing relevant information on the characters and their background stories.
  • Audience Participation: Viewers will be able to vote on who the protagonist gets to spend their free time with throughout the story.
  • Breaking Old Trends: The story has an adult join the main cast and replaces Monokuma with a bipolar monkey called Kokorosaru.
    • Kill/Cure deviates from the expected character dynamics by setting up Hiroaki, the male protagonist, and Hide, the main female, as rivals rather than partners.

    • Compared to the canon games, no one in the cast is introduced as an Ultimate ???.
    • With the exception of the The Protagonist, the participants remember their school life together prior to being trapped.
  • Central Theme: Virtue versus vice.
  • Closed Circle: Although the setting has a festive theme to it, the story is still a closed circle just like the previous installments.
  • Cruel and Unusual Death: It just wouldn't be Danganronpa without the usual murders and flashy executions.
  • Gender-Equal Ensemble: Kill/Cure averts this by including the cast's teacher as an extra player, resulting in 17 players (8 males, 9 females) trapped in the killing game.
  • Jidai Geki: The first teaser shows two areas of the school environment with a traditional Japanese theme.
  • Just Here for Godzilla: In-Universe. In the teaser, Ikki claims that most of the people watching the series will only watch it for the executions.

  • Meaningful Name: Surprisingly averted. Moboxer claims that the names for the characters were chosen based on how cool they sounded rather then having any significance towards the characters themselves or to the story.
  • Morality Kitchen Sink: Purposely done so for the cast in order to highlight the theme of virtue versus vice.
  • Mukokuseki: Downplayed. More than half of the cast don't look too unrealistic save for a select few. Justified with Fan Fan Long due to a previous experiment gone wrong.
  • Murder by Mistake: Averted. The creator confirms that no murders will be the result of someone walking in at the wrong place and time.
  • Painting the Medium: The trials will replicate much of the debate mechanics seen in New Danganronpa V3.
  • Post-End Game Content: A non-game version. Once the story ends, an extra video called Cure Mode will be released showing all the free time events for the characters who died.
  • Public Service Announcement: During the teaser video, Shiori advises the viewing audience not to be too heartbroken if any of their favorite characters end up dying and warns them not to get too attached to fictional characters.
  • Recurring Element: Several of the students featured in the cast follow the same archetypes as the canon games.
  • School Festival: Serves as the project's theme setting. Each chapter changes the school environment to match different types of cultural festivals.
  • Self-Deprecating Humor/Take That!: In the trailer, Bussho openly claims that whoever [Moboxer] created the killing game story is not well in the head and needs alot of help. He then goes to say that the fans who enjoy the death aspect of the story need to go outside and enjoy life.
  • Ship Tease: While shipping is kept to a minimum, the creator has confirmed that there will be at least one romantic pairing.
