- Foe Yay: After the second trial, fanart for Ryohei and Tachihaki began to rise thanks to how popular their rivalry is.
- Les Yay: Konoe is often paired with either Chisa or Marin. It helps that Konoe frequently hangs out with the two of them and enjoys their company.
- Narm Charm: During the second trial, Konoe randomly lists more than 20 flavors of ice cream. The reason? She vowed to give 100 reasons as to why Tachihaki should not allow himself to kill himself by accepting defeat. And many of those reasons involve taking her out to eat those flavors.
- No Export for You: Apart from the shaky subtitles on Youtube, it's incredibly difficult to find solid English translations for the story.
- Older Than They Think: When Danganronpa Kill/Cure first came out, people considered Chikuma Konishi to be the first fat girl in a Fangan Ronpa series. However, considering that DR TheAfter came before Kill/Cure, that honor belongs to Coco Hashizawa.
- Unfortunate Implications: In the first trial, Issei was able to frame Chisa for murdering Yukime by disguising himself as the runner. This included darkening his skin to look just like her.
- Unpopular Popular Character: Ryohei's popularity among his peers went down the toilet after displaying his ruthlessness and daring ingenuity in the second trial. On the flip side, it's because of these reasons, along with how they add depth to his ideals towards justice, is what led to his popularity to skyrocket in the Japanese fandom.
