Danganronpa Wikia

Reference Books are a type of collectible featured in Danganronpa Another Episode: Ultra Despair Girls. When collected, these books unlock skills such as increasing the Megaphone Hacking Gun's battery limit or raising the number of Monocoins after defeating enemies.


As you progress with Komaru Naegi and Toko Fukawa through Towa City as part of the main objective of the game, you will find reference books. These items, as well as other collectibles in the game, appear in the overworld as a small glittering object. When picked up, these books grant bonus skills which can give you an advantage in battle. Multiple skills can be attached at once, but their total cost must not exceed your maximum skill points (SP). There are 27 books to collect, and collecting all 27 will grant two trophies.
