The Top Ten Best Plot Twists in the Danganronpa Series
This was an amazing plot twist but I wish they actually made a game where you play as the remnants of despair and try not to make it too dark, I mean you kinda get introduced to the remnants of despair in danganronpa 3
This will always be the best plot twist in the series I am just objectively right.
This twist had so much impact just because of the implications of the protagonists all being the heartless killing machines. It also wasn't completely obvious until chapter 0. - kempokid
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. - kempokid
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. - kempokid
Kokichi is like, the most misunderstood character ever, his actions for chapter 4 had reasons but I think I've explained it too many times and I don't have all day
I don't forgive him for his actions, especially chapter 4, but this developed his character in an amazing way. Thanks to this, he became probably the most complex character in the series. - kempokid
This was just really funny to me - kempokid
I genuinely think this shocked me more than anything, even the Izuru Kamukura bit (That was highkey a good part though, made me sad).
This was a tearjerker, the whole thing! They brought up the spy as a bad thing at first, so to make the reader feel disdain, but to see our sweet little Chiaki be the traitor who we swore against? How despair inducing!
Not to mention, it would have been a normal suicide if Nagito didn't do..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 did truly shock me
