Love Across the Universe: Dangan Salmon Team (宇宙一周ラブバラエティ・だんがん紅鮭団) is a bonus mode unlocked after completing Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony.

Like its predecessors, School Mode and Island Mode, this bonus mode follows an alternate reality version of the main plot in which there is no Killing Game, and instead allows the protagonist to take their fellow students on dates and complete their Free Time Event paths. Unlike its predecessors, Love Across the Universe does not have a resource gathering component, instead featuring the ability to play in the Casino.

Guide Project Kaede 07.png
Shuichi! Are you okay!? Hey, Shuichi!
Guide Project Shuichi 36.png
Shuichi...? ...That's me. Kaede is calling my name... Ah...where am I...? What am I doing here?
Guide Project Shuichi 22.png
I remember...I was on my way to school, like always... When suddenly, I... I was pushed into a car... Before I even figured out what was happening, I lost consciousness. ...That's right, this is the Ultimate Academy, and we... We are... the 16 high school students with Ultimate talents. And then... The Monokubs... They ordered us to investigate the grounds.
Guide Project Kaede 06.png
Was that the bell!?
Guide Project Shuichi 33.png
Kaede, look at the monitor!
Guide Project Monophanie 07.png
Hiiii! Thanks for bear-ing with us!
Guide Project Monodam 07.png
...
Guide Project Monokid 06.png
Kept you bastards waiting, huh!?
Guide Project Monotaro 05.png
Everyone, make your way to the gym please.
Guide Project Monokid 06.png
The opening ceremony can finally begin!
Guide Project Monotaro 08.png
Phew! We finally finished our preparations!
Guide Project Monosuke 06.png
...You do realize you just read your lines backwards, don't you?
Monokuma Kubs VA ID.png
So long! Bear-well!
Guide Project Shuichi 07.png
Gym...? Opening ceremony?
Kaede...what should we do?
Guide Project Kaede 03.png
What should we do? Go, of course. Everyone else is probably doing the same thing.
Guide Project Shuichi 29.png
True, but...I'm a little worried about this...
Honestly, it was more than a little. Despite my trepidation, we headed toward the gym.
Guide Project Shuichi 10.png
When we arrived, an eerie sound greeted our ears. It reminded me of an engine sound from a giant robot anime. And right at that moment...
Monokuma Kubs VA ID.png
Yoo-hoo! Rise and shine, ursine!
Guide Project Tsumugi 08.png
Kyaaaaaaaaaah!
Guide Project Gonta 05.png
Everyone, behind Gonta!
Guide Project Tenko 13.png
Wh-What the heck are these...monsters!?
Guide Project Kokichi 16.png
Whoooooaaaa!!! So coooool!!!
Guide Project Monokid 08.png
They're Exisals—highly mobile, bipedal weapons platforms! They got lotsa hometown pride, too!
Guide Project Miu 06.png
Wh-Whatever they are, they better kill off the uggos and save me for last!
Guide Project Kokichi 01.png
Run, Himiko!
Guide Project Himiko 12.png
Why are you concerned about me all of a sudden?
Guide Project Maki 05.png
Hm, didn't someone say they would "kick all their asses"?
Guide Project Kaito 04.png
Wh-What the hell!? Nobody told me about these!
Guide Project Rantaro 03.png
Alright, chill out, no need to panic... We're probably not in any danger. If they wanted to kill us, they'd have done it by now.
As he spoke, Rantaro casually approached the monstrous machine.
Guide Project Rantaro 06.png
So what do you want from us? You clearly want something. That's what the guns are for, right?

Let me guess. You're gonna force us to do something, and if we don't, we get hurt.

Guide Project Rantaro 24.png
Well, you have our attention. So what do you want?
Guide Project Monosuke 01.png
Huh. Well aren't you a wiseguy?
Guide Project Monokid 08.png
I'll start us off! Listen up! Here's what we want you punkasses to do...
Guide Project Monokid 05.png
Hahhhhh! My heart's goin' 100 miles per hour! I'm gonna say it! You ready!?
Guide Project Monokid 08.png
Hell yeah! It's a—
Guide Project Monodam 07.png
KILLING-GAME.
Guide Project Shuichi 03.png
...What?
Guide Project Monokid 03.png
M-M-Monodam! How DARE you upstage me!
Guide Project Tenko 09.png
W-Wait a second. What did you say?
Guide Project K1-B0 07.png
I-If I heard him correctly—
Guide Project Monokuma V3 22.png
No, that's not happening.
Guide Project Kaede 06.png
Huh?
Guide Project Monokuma V3 21.png
My cute little cubs... I'm canceling this killing game...
Guide Project Monophanie 07.png
Oh! That voice!
Guide Project Monotaro 03.png
Father!? Father, is that you!?
Guide Project Monokid 08.png
Papa Kuma! Papa Kumaaaa!
Guide Project Monophanie 03.png
Daddy!? Where are you, Daddy!?
Guide Project Kaede 08.png
D-Daddy?
Guide Project Shuichi 07.png
Suddenly, a spotlight cut through the gym.
Guide Project Monokuma V3 03.png
I am the god of this new world... and the headmaster of the Ultimate Academy!
Guide Project Monokuma V3 21.png
The one, the only...Monokuma! Nice to meetcha!
Guide Project Tsumugi 12.png
Another teddy bear appeared...
Guide Project Korekiyo 07.png
Yes, but that is no ordinary teddy bear. I can see it...the despair and madness swirling around that cursed thing...
Guide Project Monokuma V3 09.png
Whoa... First of all, I'm no teddy bear. I'm Monokuma.
Guide Project Monokuma V3 04.png
And show some respect! I'm the headmaster of the Ultimate Academy for Gifted Juveniles!
Guide Project Maki 05.png
...Headmaster?
Guide Project K1-B0 01.png
It appears to be some sort of autonomous robot with a built-in A.I., like me...
Guide Project Monotaro 05.png
Dong dong dong!
Guide Project Monosuke 01.png
The Exisals are different, though! They're brainless buckets of bolts!
Guide Project Monophanie 05.png
They're mindless killing machines that can only be controlled by us, the Monokubs.
Guide Project Ryoma 07.png
Autonomous robots piloting weapons platforms... This is certainly turning into quite the story.
Guide Project Rantaro 07.png
Well that may be, but what I'm worried about is this "killing game" you mentioned. What exactly does that mean?
Guide Project Monokuma V3 21.png
Oh, you don't need to worry about that. I've decided to cancel the killing game.
Guide Project Monotaro 03.png
C-Cancel!? Did the stress of milking this series finally make you snap, Father!?
Guide Project Monokid 03.png
Don't worry, Papa Kuma! I'll help you relax! By makin' a Monodam sandbag!
Guide Project Monodam 01.png
...
Guide Project Monophanie 06.png
I don't like violence or gore, so I don't really mind if it's cancelled...
Guide Project Monosuke 04.png
P-Pops must be lyin'! He must have a glitch! That's bound to happen when ya get to be his age!
Guide Project Monokuma V3 08.png
Nope, your father has never had a single glit—
Guide Project Monokuma V3 22.png
... glit-glit-glit—
Guide Project Monokuma V3 01.png
... glit-glit-glit—
Guide Project Monokuma V3 12.png
... glit-glit-glitch in my life!
Guide Project Monotaro 14.png
You're like a kid covered in frosting who swears he didn't touch that cake!
Guide Project Monosuke 03.png
Classic Pops! His pride is higher than the Eiffel Tower!
Guide Project Monokuma V3 04.png
Anyway, I've decided to cancel the killing game! And I've never glitched! I'm a professional, dammit!
Guide Project Rantaro 06.png
...So what are we supposed to do, then? There's no way you'd just let us go after all this.
Guide Project Monokuma V3 02.png
Puhu...puhuhuhuhu...
Guide Project Kirumi 06.png
What is so amusing?
Guide Project Monokuma V3 02.png
It's just...when I said it again, I kinda just phoned it in and now I feel awkward...
Guide Project Monokuma V3 10.png
There's only one thing I want you to do in this mode... In this mode...
Guide Project Monokuma V3 11.png
I just want you to have a fun time living at the academy.
Guide Project Shuichi 03.png
...Huh?
Guide Project Tsumugi 09.png
Mode...?
Guide Project Monokuma V3 02.png
Oh, don't worry about that. It's an inside joke. Anyway, as long as you guys have a fun life at the academy, that's alright by me.
Guide Project Monokuma V3 11.png
You're at that special age where it doesn't take much to get your hormones raging.
Guide Project Himiko 10.png
Umm, I don't get the point.
Guide Project Monokuma V3 08.png
We have all the ingredients for a reality dating show, y'see? There's always one show like that on the air at any given time, y'know?
Guide Project Monokuma V3 11.png
Like, a buncha guys and gals livin' under one roof, gettin' the hots for each other... The audience just eats it up, watchin' to see who's gonna end up with who.
Guide Project Monokuma V3 18.png
That's what I want for you guys. I want you to star in your own reality dating show.
Guide Project Kaito 03.png
Quit screwing around! Why do we gotta do that!?
Guide Project Monokuma V3 11.png
Yep, that kinda stock reaction is to be expected...
Guide Project Monokuma V3 10.png
But if you've looked around the academy, then you already know, don't you? The academy is surrounded by a huge wall. You can't escape to the outside world...
Guide Project Monokuma V3 03.png
And as long as we have the Exisals, you can't defy us.
Guide Project Rantaro 07.png
So do what you say if we don't want to die.
Guide Project Tenko 12.png
Y-You gotta be kidding me! Why do we have to do such a thing!?
Guide Project Monokuma V3 22.png
Quit shouting. This is way more mild than what I originally had planned for you. Plus, I'm not saying you gotta live here forever.
Guide Project Kaede 06.png
Does that mean...you'll let us out of here?
Guide Project Monokuma V3 11.png
Weren't you listening? I said this is a reality dating show. And just like those shows promise, the couple who ends up together get to graduate.
Guide Project Monokuma V3 10.png
But, uh, try to be quick about it, okay? Audiences get bored fast these days. If no one ends up together after ten days, this show will be forced off the air.
Guide Project Kirumi 07.png
And what will happen when this show ends?
Guide Project Angie 02.png
Maybe that's when he'll make us do the killing game?
Guide Project Monokuma V3 03.png
Nyah-hahahaha! Kids these days... Always worrying about the future as if failure is a guarantee. Take chances, get messy, make mistakes! Worry about failure when it happens.
Guide Project Monophanie 07.png
A reality dating show... That sounds so exciting!
Guide Project Monokid 08.png
Papa Kuma is on the pulse of society's trends!
Guide Project Monosuke 05.png
Pops is such a great capitalist! There's no idea he won't rip off to make a profit!
Guide Project Monodam 07.png
...
Guide Project Monokuma V3 08.png
Oh, by the way, I know I said you guys just need to have a good time living here... But the romantic sparks won't fly if you guys just do whatever you want. The audience won't know who to watch if all sixteen of you are just milling about.
Guide Project Kaito 02.png
Hey, what the hell are you talking about!? Telling us to fall in love or whatever? What do you want us to do!?
Guide Project Monokuma V3 04.png
Calm down, I'm about to explain.
Guide Project Monokuma V3 02.png
When you wanna "spend time" with another student... Or in other words, when you wanna "go on a date," please exchange a Date Ticket. What's that? How do you go about obtaining one of these tickets?
Guide Project Monokuma V3 10.png
I never said these tickets were free, did I? Wanting something gives it value—in other words, you gotta shell out cash for 'em.
Guide Project Monokuma V3 02.png
You guys have already seen a place on campus where you can earn cash, haven't you?
Guide Project Monokid 07.png
...Earn cash?
Guide Project Monophanie 05.png
I know, I know! I bet he's talking about the casino!
Guide Project Monodam 09.png
...SPOILER-WARNING.
Guide Project Monophanie 03.png
...Oops!
Guide Project Monosuke 01.png
Uh-oh... Monophanie's gonna get punished by Pops—
Guide Project Monokuma V3 04.png
In a democracy, everyone shares the blame!
Guide Project Monophanie 02.png
Nrghhhhhh! I feel so bad! This is all my fault!
Guide Project Monosuke 03.png
No, it's democracy's fault!
Guide Project Monokuma V3 03.png
Now then, I can't wait to see what kinda hot-and-heavy hijinks you get into! Ah-hahahahaha!
Monokuma Kubs VA ID.png
Kah-hahahahahaha!
Guide Project Shuichi 07.png
...
I stood there dumbfounded, with that maniacal laughing ringing in my ears. Everything here is maniacal and twisted... A school surrounded by a giant wall... Sixteen imprisoned Ultimates
Guide Project Shuichi 22.png
...These bizarre stuffed animals armed to the teeth... And on top of all that... some kind of reality dating show... Without even a moment of respite, we became the cast of this twisted story.

Gameplay

The goal of the bonus mode is to reach max affection - 10 hearts - with each of the students over the course of 10 in-game days. Each in-game day allows the player to interact with two students once, or one student twice. The player can also earn an extra event per day by having a bottle of Monomergen-C in their inventory - a single use present which can be purchased in the Casino and is used automatically at the start of each day. The player is able to play one casino game of their choice (10 spins of the MonoMono Slots, not counting bonus rounds) at the end of each in-game day to earn Casino Coins which can be used to purchase gifts or other items, including Monomergen-C and Date Tickets. 100 free Casino Coins are also granted automatically each morning.

Free Time

To complete each student's affection route, the player must first complete all 5 stages of each student's Free Time Event route and earn 5 blue hearts. Some students' Free Time Events are entirely exclusive to this mode, specifically the Free Time Event routes of Kaede Akamatsu and Rantaro Amami with Shuichi Saihara, so it is not possible to complete the mode in one playthrough.

Complete guides to each students' Free Time Event route:
NOTE: For Date guides, see the "Date Tickets" section further down this page.

Date Tickets

After the player has completed a student's Free Time Event route, they are able to take the student on dates, which requires Date Tickets to be purchased from the Casino for 100 Casino coins at the end of each in-game day. Each successful event will grant the player 1 red heart for that particular student. After completing 5 hearts, the player will need to complete a final Harmonious Heart event for each student, which gives Shuichi a glimpse into the student's inner thoughts in the style of a Nonstop Debate. Successfully completing the Harmonious Heart event will grant the player that particular student's graduation event at the end of the mode. The students' affection level carries over into subsequent playthroughs of the mode until all 15 characters have max affection.

Love Suite

Hotel Kumasutra (in Japanese, Hotel Kumanami) is a hotel within the grounds of Ultimate Academy for Gifted Juveniles. If the player purchases a Key of Love from the casino for 10,000 casino coins, they will receive an intimate scene with a random student from Danganronpa V3 which takes place in a Love Suite (in Japanese, Love Hotel) inside Hotel Kumasutra. At the end of each in-game day during Love Across the Universe, if the player has a Key of Love in their inventory, they will automatically be asked if they wish to use the key. Although the Love Suite can also be accessed during Danganronpa V3's main game, Love Across the Universe is the easiest way to see all 15 students' Love Suite scenes (and the only way to see Kaede's and Rantaro's scenes), because no students die in this mode.

Endings

Bad Ending

If Shuichi is unable to get max affection with any of the students the bad ending is triggered, in which Monokuma mocks him and abandons the school, Shuichi is left trapped, and is told to either try to escape or commit suicide. Shuichi resigns himself to the fact the game will not end until he dies, and the player will have to play another round of Love Across the Universe.

Bad Ending Transcript
Guide Project Shuichi 06.png
Thus, the ten days that Monokuma gave us passed...
Guide Project Monokuma V3 08.png
Well, ten days have passed. And it looks like... Shuichi wasn't able to seal the deal...
Guide Project Monokuma V3 03.png
With anyone!
Guide Project Shuichi 19.png
Wh-What happens now?
Guide Project Monokuma V3 10.png
I dunno. Celebs who've fallen from the public eye... Artists whose projects get canceled...
Guide Project Monokuma V3 09.png
They knew the risks of pursuing their dreams and failed anyway. So they should take responsibility for that failure, right?
Guide Project Monokuma V3 03.png
You're on your own cuz you failed on your own. So I dunno what's gonna happen to you.
Guide Project Shuichi 05.png
B-But, it's not my fault, I didn't choose to come here...
Guide Project Monokuma V3 04.png
Blurgh! Hurk! Your semantic argument makes me wanna hurl! You should've spent more time working on your love game, instead.
Guide Project Monokuma V3 11.png
At any rate, I dunno what's gonna happen to you from this point. Try to escape or give up and kill yourself... Do whatever you want!
Guide Project Monokuma V3 10.png
Well then, see ya later!
Guide Project Shuichi 22.png
He said in his usual sneering cadence, then disappeared from view. This academy is now under Monokuma's control. But, that's why... I can't escape the despair. I know I cannot possibly escape by myself... If Monokuma is gone, then...
Guide Project Shuichi 11.png
My consciousness faded quickly... This is how my days at the academy ended...
Guide Project Shuichi 22.png
No, it won't end... It won't end until I die. The ending that will never end. I await with open arms.

Good Ending

If Shuichi gets at least 1 student to max affection the good ending is triggered, in which the player will be able to watch that student's graduation event and all of the students are able to leave the school.

True Ending

If Shuichi gets all of the students to max affection, the true ending is triggered, in which the students gather in the Gymnasium and learn that the bonus mode was a project intended for them to form bonds with one another. Despite the fact they were thrown into the situation in artificial circumstances, they come to the conclusion that the relationships they have built with one another are genuine. After receiving the True Ending, the player has the option to reset every student's affection back to zero so that they can play through it again.

True Ending Transcript
Guide Project Shuichi 06.png
Thus, the ten days that Monokuma gave us passed.. Monokuma summoned us to the gym.
Guide Project Monokuma V3 22.png
Well, ten days have passed. And it looks like...
After an oddly-long pause for dramatic effect, Monokuma continued.
You all...
Guide Project Monokuma V3 06.png
...Can graduate.
Guide Project Shuichi 03.png
What?
Guide Project Kaede 06.png
Graduation...
Guide Project Rantaro 18.png
You mean... we can all get out of here?
Guide Project Monokuma V3 06.png
...Yeah. That's what it means.
Guide Project Tenko 28.png
Does that include the degenerates too!? I'd prefer it if those males were confined here for the rest of their lives...
Guide Project Kaito 11.png
H-Hey! Don't give Monokuma any funny ideas!
Guide Project Monokuma V3 09.png
Relax. I don't have that much free time. I'm not gonna cause any major upshifts in a bonus mode.
Guide Project Monokuma V3 06.png
Still, though...I'm reluctant to see everyone graduate... But it's the result the viewers wanted, so what's done is done...
Guide Project Kirumi 06.png
When you mention the viewers, are you referring to the people watching this?
Guide Project Angie 02.png
Hey, hey! How come they get to decide how this ends?
Guide Project Monokuma V3 04.png
Geez! That doesn't matter! Just like how it doesn't matter if Himiko's magic is just parlor tricks!
Guide Project Himiko 04.png
Wha—!? Where did that come from!? Don't make fun of magic! Magic is the foundation the world is built on!
Guide Project Monokuma V3 01.png
...Anyway, I'm just gonna leave you all with these words.
Guide Project Monokuma V3 04.png
This outcome doesn't mean I lost!
Guide Project Monokuma V3 06.png
I'm not mad that you're graduating. In fact, it's what I expected... Everything went how it was supposed to go. Overall, I think that's a good thing...
Guide Project Kaede 02.png
He's such a sore loser.
Guide Project Monokuma V3 04.png
So what if I am!? Even if I fail, I learn from my mistakes. That's just the kinda bear I am. I have a lot to think about just in case there are any plans for the future.
Guide Project Tsumugi 01.png
Plans...?
Guide Project Tenko 04.png
You're not making any sense!
Guide Project Miu 19.png
I mean, what did you even want outta this anyway!? Clearly you weren't interested in pawning those candid shots you took of me!
Guide Project Monokuma V3 10.png
What did I want...? It's obvious, obviously. I'm always thinking about what the audience wants.
Guide Project Monokuma V3 11.png
Cuz I'm the darling mascot of Danganronpa!
Guide Project Gonta 09.png
...Danganronpa? ...Gonta doesn't understand. Is it cuz Gonta's not smart?
Guide Project Korekiyo 02.png
No...he is simply making no sense to begin with.
Guide Project Monokuma V3 10.png
I don't wanna ruin the main game in this side story, so I'll just leave things here.
Guide Project Monokuma V3 03.png
Welp, see ya later! And don't forget— Monokuma is forever eternal!
Guide Project Rantaro 24.png
...And he left.
Guide Project Ryoma 07.png
So...we're allowed to leave now?
Guide Project Kaito 10.png
Of course! If they suddenly change their minds, I'll kick their asses straight into orbit!
Guide Project Maki 02.png
Geez, Kaito...even after all this, you're still just talk.
Guide Project Miu 04.png
His top head is already writing checks that his bottom head can't cash!
Guide Project K1-B0 10.png
At any rate...it certainly seems as though we can leave this place, right?
Guide Project K1-B0 17.png
We've earned this victory. Let's just enjoy it!
Guide Project Shuichi 12.png
The final day... Our life here ends today. We're going to leave this place and return to reality.
Guide Project Tsumugi 16.png
Even if it's just a little... Just a little tiny bit... Isn't it just plain sad to leave here?
Guide Project Korekiyo 02.png
Really? This place has no cultural merit, so my interests lie elsewhere. To be frank, I'm happy we now have the option to leave...
Guide Project Tsumugi 17.png
I mean, of course I'm glad to leave, but I would've liked to stay longer... The scenery here makes cosplay shine. I wanted to enjoy it a bit longer.
Guide Project Tsumugi 30.png
Don't you all have any regrets leaving this place?
Guide Project Ryoma 14.png
Once I leave here... I'll be back in prison. When I think about that... Yeah, I've got regrets leaving this place.
Guide Project Gonta 11.png
Gonta's sad to see everyone go... Everyone was getting along, too...
Guide Project Kaede 15.png
But once we're out of here, we'll still remember our time here together. We should keep the things we've obtained close to our hearts and work hard toward a new life.
Guide Project Maki 01.png
...The things we've obtained?
Guide Project Kaede 35.png
You get it right, Shuichi? The things we've obtained in this life.
Guide Project Shuichi 06.png
Y-Yeah...
What we obtained from our time here...
Dating Techniques
Guide Project Shuichi 10.png
Ah, dating techniques?
Guide Project Tenko 12.png
Wha—!? How could degenerate males be so vulgar!?
Guide Project Himiko 08.png
I see. So you're a dark mage that controls the hearts of others, huh?
Guide Project Shuichi 08.png
N-No, that's not it...
Guide Project Shuichi 06.png
I suppose that was wrong. Perhaps...
Good ratings
Guide Project Shuichi 07.png
Ah, good ratings?
Guide Project Tsumugi 18.png
What!? Are you on Monokuma's side, Shuichi!? Were you a spy like Ryoji!?
Guide Project Rantaro 05.png
Can you please not joke about that, Shuichi? Especially not now, at the end. If I found out that...I could no longer trust you...I could never trust anyone again.
Guide Project Shuichi 02.png
I-I'm sorry...
Guide Project Shuichi 06.png
What we obtained from our time here...
Bonds of friendship
Guide Project Shuichi 32.png
Bonds of friendship, right? If we never got dragged into this mess, we never would have met each other. Perhaps that's why the bond between us is so strong.
Guide Project Maki 02.png
...Yuck, embarrassing.
Guide Project Kaito 09.png
But, Shuichi's absolutely right, y'know? As long as we've got our bonds, there's no reason to regret leaving!
Guide Project Ryoma 05.png
I've still got my regrets...
Guide Project Ryoma 02.png
But my memories with you guys... will make prison a little easier on me.
Guide Project Gonta 01.png
Gonta believes he can work harder! To become true gentleman!

Just because we are no longer trapped here does not mean we will be apart forever. If you require my service, you may call me.

I see... Well, if everyone is okay with that...
Guide Project Shuichi 06.png
During these last ten days... we obtained something irreplaceable. An irreplaceable bond.
Guide Project Shuichi 27.png
And with that bond in our hearts, we will return to our everyday lives. Lives without Monokuma or the Monokubs or Exisals or locked rooms or rules... Finally, just...a normal life.
Guide Project Shuichi 31.png
But...deep down... There's a part of me that regrets having to leave this fictional world. Perhaps I'm just scared of returning to dull days. But we don't have to be scared anymore. If we cherish these bonds between us, we can handle anything.
Guide Project Shuichi 32.png
That's how I feel about all this... Our bonds were born from some ridiculous dating game show... But that doesn't make them a farce. On the contrary, it makes them even more real, even more special. We will return to reality with new friendships in our hearts.
Guide Project Shuichi 17.png
To boring reality... To a boring, dull reality... Still. It's a reality we love.
Guide Project Shuichi 28.png
And thus... our days at the Ultimate Academy for Gifted Juveniles... came to an end.

Trivia

  • The Japanese name of this mode, Dangan Red Salmon Gang (だんがん紅鮭団), references the real world Japanese matchmaking variety show Neruton Red Whale Gang (ねるとん紅鯨団).
  • Unlike in the main game, Monokuma is transparent about the fact the students are in a television show from the very beginning. Monokuma even breaks the fourth wall with the player by referring to Love Across the Universe as a "bonus mode".
  • Despite the fact no characters die in this mode, including the Chapter 1 protagonist Kaede, Shuichi acts as the game's protagonist. As a result, none of the Free Time Events featuring Kaede as the protagonist are available in this mode and must be completed in Danganronpa V3's main game.
  • In the Bad Ending, a full collection of the Hidden Monokumas will feature on the shelf in Shuichi's dorm room, even if the player has not completed the collection.
