Kuwata execution

Leon Kuwata's execution.

Execution or often dubbed as Punishment appears in Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc, Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair, Danganronpa Another Episode: Ultra Despair Girls, Danganronpa 3: The End of Hope's Peak Academy - Side Despair, Danganronpa 3: The End of Hope's Peak Academy - Side: Future and Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony.

In Danganronpa, Danganronpa 2 and New Danganronpa V3, they happen at the end of every Class Trial when someone is voted guilty. In Danganronpa Another Episode, they mostly happen after every boss battle. In Danganronpa 3, they are a punishment for breaking the forbidden action/NG Codes .

Mechanism

Danganronpa 3 - Side: Despair

The genesis of executions is revealed in Danganronpa 3 - Side: Despair. Junko Enoshima decided that an execution which utilizes things the victim is familiar with and finds comfort in their daily life from will bring about the greatest despair. Furthermore, she realized that broadcasting it will help bring about despair to people related to its victim. First tested a basic form by simply using a Trustee's favorite food to kill him, she refined it into the familiar form of talent-oriented execution by the time of Parade: a real-life dungeon crawler to execute Chiaki Nanami the Ultimate Gamer; its broadcast was also used to turn Class 77-B into Ultimate Despair.

Danganronpa and Danganronpa 2

Executions are used at the end of every class trial once everyone has picked someone to be guilty. If the students successfully pick the blackened, they and they alone will be executed. If they pick wrong, everyone except the blackened will be executed.

However, there are some exceptions to this rule. In DanganronpaJin Kirigiri is executed in the Prologue before the killing game began. In Chapter 4, a special guest for the execution was used, as the blackened was also the victim, via suicide, and Monokuma wanted to get rid of it as it had accessed the school's computer network. In Chapter 5, Monokuma set up a show trial as the Mastermind was annoyed with Kyoko Kirigiri attempting to find the truth. In both variations of the execution, although technically the students are incorrect, Monokuma accepts the results as valid, as the mastermind wants to keep the others alive to bring despair to the world. Likewise in Chapter 5 of Danganronpa 2 , Monokuma decides to execute Monomi along with AI Chiaki Nanami, as Monomi and Chiaki were both part of the Future Foundation, Monokuma's enemy, and that Monokuma found Monomi's interference annoying.

Continuing with the use of things familiar with the victim, executions are ironically designed based on the talents of the person being executed, their feelings at the time, or settings they are familiar with. The only exceptions to this seem to be Excavator Destroyer and Blast Off!.

Besides the formal execution used in every class trial, students who violated the rules applied by Monokuma will immediately executed. This installment used when Mukuro Ikusaba under Junko's disguise executed via Spears of Gungnir after she used violence toward Monokuma.

The executions in Danganronpa V3 are all notably more brutal than previous installments. As also with the previous installments, the executions follow a correct voting of the murderer in the Class Trial, however, the Mastermind seems to bend or even break the rules of the executions.

In Chapter 1, Kaede Akamatsu is wrongly executed by Monokuma with her victim not actually being killed by her, but rather the Mastermind after the Mastermind had a failed attempt to kill the victim with a trap.

In Chapter 4, Gonta Gokuhara is executed despite not committing a murder because while in a VR simulation, his AI glitches out and kills Miu Iruma.

Danganronpa Another Episode

In Danganronpa Another Episode, executions are done differently. They are used to symbolize a character's death but usually occur at the end of a boss battle. The person controlling the robot will be executed, either by the Monokuma Kids or the robot itself in an explosion.

At the end of Danganronpa Another Episode, it was revealed that all of the people executed after boss battles survived and were now battling the Monokuma robots.

Danganronpa 3 - Side: Future

In Danganronpa 3 - Side: Future, 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.
