Leon Kuwata execution

Leon Kuwata's execution.

Executions (実行 Jikkō) often refered to as 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 - Side: Future and Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony.

In Danganronpa 1, 2, and V3, they happen at the end of every Class Trial after someone is voted guilty. In Another Episode, they mostly happen after every boss battle. In Danganronpa 3 - Side: Future, they are a punishment for breaking a forbidden action.


Danganronpa 1, 2, and V3

Executions happen after a class trial once the students vote for who the 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.

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.


This section contains SPOILERS for Danganronpa V3. It has been hidden from view to protect users from spoiling themselves. Expand at your own risk.

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 during weird circumstances. In a New World Program, due to a mix-up, 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. 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 a character's death and usually occur at the end of a boss battle. The person cotrolling the robot will be executed, either by the Monokuma Kids or the robot itself in an explosion.

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.
