Danganronpa 1 - Executions - Leon Kuwata (64)

Executions (実行 Jikkō) often referred to as Punishment (おしおき Oshioki) appear in Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc, Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair, Danganronpa Another Episode: Ultra Despair Girls, Danganronpa 3: The End of Hope's Peak High School - Side Despair, Danganronpa 3: The End of Hope's Peak High School - Future Arc and Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony. They are used as a means for those behind a Mutual Killing Game and the Demon Hunting game to kill participants by themselves, usually according to the rule of the game.

In Danganronpa 1, 2, and V3, they usually happen at the end of every Class Trial after someone is voted guilty. In Another Episode, they usually happen after every boss battle. In Danganronpa 3 - Future Arc, they are a punishment for breaking a forbidden action. In the context of the video games they appear in (and many of their adaptations), executions take the form of animated cutscenes with a distinct style.



Executions were first chronologically introduced in Danganronpa 3: The End of Hope's Peak Academy - Despair Arc. A prototype hosted by Junko Enoshima was first used to execute Chiaki Nanami in order to make her classmates fall into despair. Unlike other executions, this prototype was not hosted by Monokuma, and is not as part of any killing game.

Danganronpa 1, 2, and V3[]

Executions are used by Monokuma to eliminate students that break the rules, as well as happening after a Class Trial once the students vote for who the 'blackened' killer is, which is decided by popular vote. If the majority's vote is correct, the blackened alone will be executed. On the contrary, if the vote turns out to be wrong, then all the students besides the blackened will be executed instead. Blackened that are executed after a trial are given an execution personalized to them.

However, there are times when the mastermind bends or even breaks this rule. In Danganronpa 1, the mastermind set up a fake trial to execute Kyoko Kirigiri for attempting to find the truth and solve the mystery of the killing game. Since their plan of setting Kyoko up as the killer backfired when the students suspected Makoto Naegi of being the killer, they tried to execute him instead. Likewise, in Danganronpa 2, as Chiaki Nanami is about to be executed, Monokuma decides to execute Monomi too, as he found her to be annoying.

In Danganronpa V3, Kaede Akamatsu is wrongly executed by Monokuma - as the victim was not actually killed by her, but rather by the mastermind after a failed attempt of killing the victim with a trap. In Chapter 4, Gonta Gokuhara is also executed due to strange circumstances. In the Neo World Program, due to mixing up the memory and consciousnesses cords, Gonta didn't remember the murder he committed while in the program. In Chapter 5, due to the victim's plan, not even Monokuma knew who was murdered, as such, both missing people were missing from the class trial, until the culprit is revealed. But because of Kaito's illness, it killed him before his execution could. In Chapter 6, due to the participants refusing to play along, the mastermind of the killing game starts the execution of the remaining survivors, with Shuichi Saihara, Maki Harukawa, and Himiko Yumeno surviving the execution at the end.

Danganronpa Another Episode: Ultra Despair Girls[]

In Danganronpa Another Episode, executions are done differently. They are used to symbolize the death of a Warrior of Hope after being defeated by the protagonists at the end of a boss battle, or the attempted killing of a significant Demon. The Warriors of Hope are usually taken by the Monokuma Kids, or are crushed/blown up due to the destruction of their robots in their executions. There are some cutscenes in Another Episode that share an art style with the game's executions, but are not considered as such.

Danganronpa 3 - Future Arc[]

In Danganronpa 3 - Future Arc, executions occur when Rule #3 of the Final Killing Game is broken. On each players' arm is a bangle, which has a forbidden action on it, also known as an NG Code. If that action is performed, then a lethal dose of poison is administered and the player is killed.
