Danganronpa Wiki

Blast Off! Second Ignition (ニュー宇宙旅行 lit. New Space Journey) is a failed execution featured in Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony. The reason why it failed was because Kaito Momota, the one who was supposed to be executed, succumbed to his illness before the execution killed him.


Mirroring the original Blast Off!, Kaito was seen inside a classroom along with Monokuma, the latter of whom was dressed like an astronaut. Monokuma then pressed a button that triggered an iron maiden-like rocket behind Kaito. Right before it could take off to space, it suddenly turned upside down and went underground instead with Kaito severely coughing in the process.

The rocket eventually passed through the earth and reached space. Right after Kaito saw the stars, he smiled in satisfaction, as he was able to travel to space (as it was his dream to). Then, he coughed a heavy amount of blood, which splattered on the window, and peacefully succumbed to his death due to his implanted chronic disease, causing the execution to fail. An "Error" message appeared on the rocket before it fell and crashed into the classroom in which the survivors were.

K1-B0 immediately protected his friends from the falling rocket and subsequent rubble, causing his ahoge, later discovered to be a device to communicate with his inner voice, to be knocked off by the rubble. The rocket opened, revealing Kaito's dead body. The failure of the execution made Monokuma incredibly angry, as Kaito proved that he was able to die on his own terms.


DRV3 Chap 5 Execution Easter Egg
  • This execution was a reference to Jin Kirigiri's execution Blast Off! from Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc, with both of them involving being locked in iron maiden rockets and launched into space. His bones can also be seen.
  • In the English and French localization, during the Monokuma button animation, the background was changed into the original courtroom featured in Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc due to the change of the design of the courtroom. This is an exclusive background for the localization as the original Japanese version maintains its original background.
  • This is the only execution where the Blackened dies before being properly executed by Monokuma.
  • This is the first execution in Danganronpa V3 in which none of the Monokubs are also killed.
  • This is the last formal execution in the series.
