Best Plot Twists in the Danganronpa SeriesThe Danganronpa series is basically built around its plot twists, so you'd hope that there are some great ones in the series. If you came to this list without expecting spoilers, then you really do deserve to get every good twist ruined for you.
This made a lot of sense in hindsight and really made the mastermind detestable. I appreciated this one due to how it made the Trial 1 twist that much more shocking.
I did see this coming, sadly. We all knew that it was too good to be true, did we not?
This was an amazing plot twist! Do I even need to explain why?
This twist had so much impact, primarily because of the implications of the protagonists all being heartless killing machines. It also wasn't completely obvious until Chapter 0.
This will always be the best plot twist in the series. I am just objectively right.
This was an amazing plot twist, but I wish they had actually made a game where you play as the Remnants of Despair and try not to make it too dark. I mean, you kind of get introduced to the Remnants of Despair in Danganronpa 3.
I don't forgive him for his actions, especially Chapter 4, but this developed his character in an amazing way. Thanks to this, he probably became the most complex character in the series.
Kokichi is, like, the most misunderstood character ever. His actions in Chapter 4 had reasons, but I think I've explained it too many times, and I don't have all day.
See, this is one of the many reasons I love Kokichi. He's a really complex character.
I absolutely love how they pretended to kill off Junko in the second episode so that we could forget about her until her reveal. Epic plot twist.
Out of everyone, I didn't expect her to be the real mastermind. It was a nice twist.
This surprised me, but I slightly expected it. It made sense.
This was just really funny to me.
I genuinely think this shocked me more than anything, even the Izuru Kamukura bit. That was a high-key good part, though. It made me sad. This was a tearjerker - the whole thing! They brought up the spy as a bad thing at first to make the reader feel disdain. But to see our sweet little Chiaki be the traitor we swore against? How despair-inducing! Not to mention, it would have been a normal suicide if Nagito hadn't done that. I don't like Nagito, but it was clever, and also heartbreaking. Why did it happen? Nagito wanted everybody who was a Remnant to die, and Chiaki (who did NOT cause despair) to live. And what happened? Our gamer girl was wiped out! She even knew she had to prove it, even if she WAS an AI. To put it simply, Nagito Komaeda's plan caused Chiaki Nanami's downfall, even if it was supposed to keep her alive. And with her downfall came despair. Junko could easily push despair onto the survivors, all thanks to Nagito.
This was one of those subtle surprises.
This did truly shock me.
