Danganronpa Wiki

Chiaki Nanami's Punishment (七海 千秋のおしおき) is an execution featured in Danganronpa 3: The End of Hope's Peak High School - Despair Arc, with Chiaki Nanami being executed.


Chiaki is forced into a dungeon maze full of dangerous traps. Forced to escape to reunite with her friends, she keeps moving through the halls, but activates a hidden switch on the floor, allowing a spike to impale her foot. Not giving up hope, Chiaki is then fired with metal balls that injure her right eye and arm. Junko Enoshima, who watches her through cameras in the dungeon, starts a countdown. Chiaki desperately tries to limp to safety only to be speared in the knee. Junko proceeds to mockingly state that she has a despairingly bad temper. At the end of the maze is a large door marked "GOAL", behind which stand Chiaki's classmates and Chisa Yukizome. Upon Chiaki opening the door, she sees her class happily waiting for her to arrive. Chisa reaches out for Chiaki but she happens to be just an illusion; instead, a spear fires and goes through Chiaki's heart. Simultaneously, a bed of spikes appears around her, catching her as she falls.

Unlike other executions, it does not end in her immediate death, allowing Izuru Kamukura to talk to her briefly. It is also more eventful and tortures her a bit more before she dies.


The rest of Chiaki's classmates, who were forced to watch the brainwashing recording of Chiaki's execution, eventually fall into despair and become part of Ultimate Despair who will begin The Tragedy.



  • Unlike other formal executions, only its broadcast is "hosted" by a Monokuma as a stuffed bear; Junko herself directed the execution through video screens.
  • This is by far the longest execution in the series, taking up over half the episode in which it takes place. Comparatively, most other executions last around 2 minutes maximum.
  • Chronologically, this is the first formal execution in the Danganronpa series.
  • Chiaki's death in Despair Arc is very similar to Mukuro's death in Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc: being suddenly impaled by dozens of spears. The deaths also double as acts of betrayal from those who were closest to them (Junko, in Mukuro's case, and Chisa, in Chiaki's case).
  • It should also be noted that her AI counterpart in the Super Danganronpa 2: Sayonara Zetsubō Gakuen THE STAGE (2015) is executed by spear impalement as well.
