Gundham Tanaka Stampede (眼蛇夢大地に堕つ Gandamu taichi ni otsu lit. Gundham Falling to the Earth) is an execution in Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair, with Gundham Tanaka being executed.

Sequence

In a desert, a stampede of animals led by Monokuma charges toward Gundham with him standing there waiting to die. He takes his four pet hamsters and places them aside so they do not get killed mercilessly like he knows he will.

Gundham then draws a magic circle by a stick, but it ultimately does nothing, and the stampede runs him down. With his last breath, he looks to his hamsters, all in despair as animal angels carry his body to a better place with the hamsters and Monokuma looking to the sunset.

Trivia

  • The execution's subtitle reads 超高校級の飼育委員田中眼蛇夢処刑執行 chō kōkō kyū no shiiku iin Tanaka Gandamu shokei-shikkō - meaning "Ultimate Breeder Gundham Tanaka's Execution: Executed" as the English translation puts it.
  • The execution's name is reference to a famous scene from the popular Japanese mecha anime Mobile Suit Gundam 0079, where the RX-78-2 Gundam fell to Earth after a battle against Zeon Ace Char Aznable - befitting the reference to the Gundam series made through Gundham Tanaka's name.
  • One fine detail about the execution which further develops the reference to the shōnen manga genre, established through Gundham's name and the names of his hamsters, is the use of furigana in the execution's Japanese title. Furigana is a Japanese reading aid consisting of smaller hiragana placed over kanji to indicate their proper pronunciation to those who are unfamiliar with them. Furigana are commonplace in manga aimed at the shōnen demographic due to the fact that the audience falling under this category has a highly varied ineptitude at kanji.
