Trivia

  • It was not revealed that Killer Killer existed in the Danganronpa universe until Chapter 3, when the manga's full title was revealed in the June issue of Bessatsu Shōnen Magazine.
  • All 3 compilation volumes include art referencing Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc:
    • Volume 1 features Takumi murdered in the style of Sayaka Maizono.
    • Volume 2 features Misaki hung by ropes to a frame, in the style of Chihiro Fujisaki.
    • Volume 3 features Takumi on a throne, wearing Junko Enoshima's crown.
  • There are also several references to the murders featured in Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc in Chapter 3, in which Eiichirō Saiyama is a documentary manga artist drawing manga about The Tragedy.:
    • In Eiichirō's room of corpses, two victims are seen crucified by ropes, in the manner of Chihiro Fujisaki's body.
    • In one of Eiichirō's pages, a body is posed in the manner of Sayaka Maizono's corpse.
    • In another of Eiichirō's pages, Mukuro Ikusaba's death scene is seen, and this seen is mimicked when Takumi Hijirihara murders Eiichirō.
  • Danganronpa Killer Killer Chapter 3 Sparkling Justice Trivia
    The mask of Sparkling Justice, a serial killer mentioned in Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair, is on display in Eiichirō Saiyama's room in Chapter 3. Because the identity of Sparkling Justice is unknown, it is possible that Sparkling Justice and Killer Killer may be the same person, as they both have the same M.O. (murdering other killers), which is supported by the fact that the name of Sparkling Justice in the original Japanese release of Danganronpa 2 is Kirakira Seigi (キラキラセギ). It is unknown if this is intentional or simply a reference.
