Danganronpa 2 CG - Monokuma explaining the Class Trial

Class Trials are the final act of each chapter in Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair. The students debate amongst themselves, using evidence collected during the investigation phase, to determine the culprit in each chapter. The debate takes place in a courtroom setting, and consists of several debate phases and minigames. The trial ends when the culprit - known as the "Blackened" - is uncovered, and ultimately executed. This page serves as an overview and guide to Class Trials in Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair. See the Class Trials main page for a more general overview of Class Trials throughout all Danganronpa games.

Minigames

Aside from Non-Stop Debate and Closing Argument, Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair has 4 major minigames: Improved Hangman's Gambit, Panic Talk Action, Rebuttal Showdown and Logic Dive:

  • Improved Hangman's Gambit: The player travels into Hajime's mind in a minigame similar to the Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc equivalent, however the letters now move on a set path and must be shot in order. If two letters collide, it causes damage to Hajime's Influence gauge.
  • Panic Talk Action: The Danganronpa 2 equivalent of the Bullet Time Battle minigame. Although the rhythm mechanic is the same, instead of an influence gauge Hajime now damages shields which float around the opponent. Once the shields are destroyed, 4 words or word segments will appear on screen which, if selected in the correct order, form a rebuttal to the opponent's argument.
  • Rebuttal Showdown: Similar to Non-Stop Debate, but instead is a one-on-one debate against an opponent. Statements must be destroyed using a sword, until the correct weak point is identified and destroyed with a final "Truth Sword".
  • Logic Dive: The player travels into Hajime's mind and rides a snowboard through a virtual obstacle course. At certain points along the course, multiple choice questions are posed which are answered by traveling along the correct route. Choosing the incorrect answer causes Hajime to fall off the course and waste time. Hajime must reach the end of the course before the time limit ends.

Closing Argument

Danganronpa 2 Chapter 1 - Closing Argument Act 1
Let's try going over the whole incident, beginning with right after the party started... Byakuya had us gather in the dining hall of the old building near the hotel. He was extra cautious about a murder occurring that night because of a threatening letter he received. Therefore, he decided to throw a party so he could monitor us. Though one person didn't come, the rest of us assembled at the dining hall...and the party was underway. But, at that time, the trap set by a certain someone was already in motion.


Danganronpa 2 Chapter 1 - Closing Argument Act 2 (1)
They plugged three irons into the outlets in the storage room, which nearly capped the power usage... Additionally, they prepared something else that would activate at 11:30 p.m....


Danganronpa 2 Chapter 1 - Closing Argument Act 2 (2)
The air conditioners in the office and dining hall. They had already set the timers for these. Thanks to the irons maxing out the power usage, the breaker was tripped when the air conditioners kicked on. Since the windows in the old building were covered, the blackout plunged the dining hall into total darkness.

Danganronpa 2 Chapter 1 - Closing Argument Act 3 (2)
But when that happened, Byakuya took out a specfic item that he brought in his case. That item...was the night-vision goggles. Byakuya was so concerned about a murder occurring that he brought a variety of security equipment with him. When he put on his night-vision goggles, Byakuya witnessed a certain someone making a suspicious move... He saw Nagito guiding himself with the desk lamp's power cord so he could get under the table. That's right. Everything to that point was all part of Nagito's plan. The murder warning to Byakuya, the source of the blackout... It was all Nagito.


Danganronpa 2 Chapter 1 - Closing Argument Act 4 (1)
While the blackout was happening, someone else - the real killer - began making their move in the kitchen. The killer probably already knew about Nagito's plan, so they knew a blackout was coming... That's why the killer prepared all the items they would need to commit their crime in the dark beforehand. They needed a light source, which was provided by the portable stove in the kitchen. They needed a weapon, too... This had also been hidden in the kitchen beforehand. The long iron skewer used in the churrasco dish. The killer hid that inside that meat with the bone in it.


Danganronpa 2 Chapter 1 - Closing Argument Act 4 (2)
With the weapon and portable stove in hand, the killer stepped out into the hallway... First they closed the fire door in the hallway so their light source wouldn't peek toward the dining hall. Then, guided by the light, the killer headed toward the storage room and grabbed a specific item... That's right. A tablecloth to block the blood splatter.


Danganronpa 2 Chapter 1 - Closing Argument Act 4 (3)
With this, the killer finished their preparations and snuck under the floorboards through the secret passage. They probably turned off the portable cooking stove at that point, or left it near the entrance of the door. The floor in the dining hall is full of gaps, so there's no way they could've safely held a light source. But thanks to the glowing mark they painted earlier, the killer was able to get beneath the table.


Danganronpa 2 Chapter 1 - Closing Argument Act 4 (4)
Under the table, Byakuya found the knife that had been hidden there...


Danganronpa 2 Chapter 1 - Closing Argument Act 5
If only he had retreated, he probably wouldn't have gotten killed but... He had to retrieve that knife. And, at that moment... The killer lurking beneath the floorboards stabbed straight up with the iron skewer! The killer had been waiting in the dark for the moment when the glowing paint began to move.


Danganronpa 2 Chapter 1 - Closing Argument Act 6
After they murdered Byakuya, the killer... ...purposefully shouted from beneath the floorboards to make it seem like they were still in the dining hall. Afterward, they came out from underneath the floorboards and rushed back to the kitchen. And then, after hiding the murder weapon in the kitchen, they rejoined the group as if nothing had happened.

Danganronpa 2 Chapter 1 - Closing Argument Revealed
There's only one person who would've been able to commit this crime... Especially if that person is someone who'd think of an unexpected way to hide a weapon inside food... Isn't that right... Teruteru Hanamura!?
