Best Executions from Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc

The Executions in Danganronpa are almost always really entertaining, sure another character gets killed, but the way they are is almost creative enough to forgive the game of killing another character. I'll be going with the official names of these executions.
The Top Ten
The 1000 Blows

Through the entire game, none of the executions gave me the same visceral reaction as this one. This is just so unbelievably brutal. It showed Leon's expressions full of fear and pure pain through the entire time he was being killed. I was left speechless after this one.

Now, for me it is a tie between 1000 Blows and Burning of the Versallies witch. So, I chose the less popular one. Here’s why:

1000 Blows: I respect the art style of this execution. Erie colors like red, black, and white were used to make it more creepy. Not to mention how the brutality sets and the stage and makes the killing game more serious. All of the facial expressions and blood that is actually red left me wondering what the hell I just watched. I was legitimately scared. (Especially how when I like 7 I got hit with one baseball and cried.) Anyways, this execution actually makes me feel bad for Leon, as it is brutal and scary.

Burning of the Versallies Witch: Celesria Ludenberg is an interesting character, making her one of my favorite characters. She wanted to be royal and special. The execution starts out looking like a royal execution. It has an old-timey setting as Celestia is tricked into believing that she will be burned at the stake. However, in ...more

The music with the shot with the ball rolling and the blood on it, I get chills every time I watch it. Worst character, best execution

It is just traumatic but after a couple more deaths, we as players get accustomed to it (possibly how the characters start to feel).

The Burning of the Versailles Witch

Out of all the executions, this one definitely fits the role of bringing despair the most. While others may be more brutal, this one is great due to how much despair it brought Celeste while still being ironic. As she is being burned at the stake, she looks happy as she is dying in such a way, then at the last second, Monokuma comes in on a fire truck and runs her over, giving her one of the most common deaths possible. This also fits nicely into her talent which involves bluffing

Just absurd. As she is being burnt, she looks like she accepted her fate, but all of the sudden, a FIRE TRUCK wrecked into her

What if she turned into a hamburger-

Coolest execution by far but I hoped there would be more stages of this execution because some executions go through various dangerous elements

After School Lesson

What can I say about this one? People strapped on a desk being crushed by a machine is just mediocre to me, I don't know why but it’s only okay

This one goes for both characters, as the main reasons that this was so well made were because of how off it felt. I had the distinct feeling that something wasn't right in either case. The build u0p was also perfect as the characters' faces slowly changed more and more as the sounds of the machine grew louder and louder.

I never wanted to see my favorite character get executed, and thankfully, Alter Ego saved him. But I voted for this one because it has so much detail in it.

Okay, the execution was pretty boring, but once Alter Ego appeared on the screen, I knew this would be the best one.

The Cage of Death

This is the nastiest of all the executions, the only reason why I find others better is because I wasn't exactly aware about what was happening. When I found out, my jaw dropped, using the intense speed of the cage to melt Mondo down into butter, but using electricity to keep his brain active as he was being melted, making him feel every second of his body melting.

I have no idea how Mondo got turned into marketable butter, but it’s still really cool

The Ultimate Execution

OK, but the Burning of the Versailles Witch part was nerfed so much as there was little to no despair it’s was just a fire burning her and then she gets hit by a truck.

I'm not a particular fan of this one for the sole reason that I feel it to be quite lazy, after having so many cool, creative ideas to kill people, the game devs ended it by repeating them all. That said, Junko's reactions definitely were enough to forgive them of this, as she was absolutely hilarious the entire way through.

The Spear of Gungnir

While technically not an execution, Monokuma killed her, therefore I'll count it. This one caught me off guard greatly as I didn't expect "Junko" to get killed right there and then. The way her body was jittering as she had the spears through her also added to the extreme unease that was felt.

My least favorite; it’s just Monokuma killing fake Junko

Blast Off

The opening shot of the game has a lot going for it, it nicely incorporates the insanity of the aesthetics of the game, while still being somewhat brutal. That said, since I felt no connection to the character who was killed, a lot of its impact was weakened for me.

It’s somewhat brutal, but other than that it’s just lackluster.

Excavator Destroyer

I really don't like this one at all. It was a nasty surprise to see Alter Ego on the stand, but the execution itself was quite lacklustre, the reason for this is because I don't see anyone that this execution would be made for, all the other executions were tailored to be ironic based on particular character traits, but this one was just smashing something with a excavator, no charm to that.

Alter Ego’s execution was mediocre as it’s a computer and who would fit this?

One Woman Army

I think that peko is badass and I would love to see her and Sakura fight each other or be friends

Just seeing how close she was to Fuyuhiko was just heartbreaking

Strand of Agony

This is anthor of my favorite character execution scene and it makes me sad because she is probably the best character every beside korekiyo. I hate how she got executed. I made me sad

I fell bad for kirumi its just sad

The Contenders
Cultural Melting Pot

This killed my favorite character of v3 and it made me so sad. I can't believe that they killed kiyo so he couldn't be with her

Not thh, but it just scares me-
