The Danganronopa universe refers to the Danganronpa series in reference to its appearance within the Super Smash Bros. fighting game series. Danganronpa is primarily a murder-mystery visual novel series, that primarily follows the "Ultimate" students of Hope's Peak Academy during the killing games forced upon them by a monotonous bear known as Monokuma.
The Danganronpa series has never been released on a Nintendo platform, being solely released on the PlayStation brand of systems. As such, the series has never seen representation in canon Super Smash Bros. title
Canon Representation Edit
As previously stated, the series has not received any representation in canonical Super Smash Bros. titles. Despite this, Masafumi Takada, one of the composers of the Danganronpa series, worked on both Super Smash Bros. Brawl and Super Smash Bros. 4. These scores have been remixed by Masafumi Takada:
- Ending (Yoshi's Story) - Super Smash Bros. Brawl
- Mike's Song - Super Smash Bros. Brawl
- Mike's Song (JP) - Super Smash Bros. Brawl
- Shin Onigashima - Super Smash Bros. Brawl
- Tetris: Type B - Super Smash Bros. Brawl
- Lip's Theme (Panel de Pon) - Super Smash Bros. Brawl
- Marionation Gear - Super Smash Bros. Brawl
- Lightning Chariot Base - Super Smash Bros. for Wii U
- Tortimer Island Medley - Super Smash Bros. 4
- Tomodachi Life - Super Smash Bros. 4
While not directly related to the Danganronpa series, it is nonetheless an interesting point to note.
Fanon Representation Edit
Spike Chunsoft aided in the development of Super Smash Bros. Strife, and received thanks in the form of trophies of characters from some of their IPs. Danganronpa was one of those IPs.
In Super Smash Bros. Strife, the series is not classified as its own universe, instead lumped into the greater "Spike Chunsoft" universe.
| ||Makoto Naegi||The Ultimate Lucky Student, Makoto Naegi is the main protagonist of Spike Chunsoft's Danganronpa series. He awakens in a classroom with no recollection of how he got there. He and fourteen other students are summoned into the gymnasium of Hope's Peak Academy, where they meet Monokuma. Now, forced into the School Life of Mutual Killing, Makoto holds out hope that they will safely escape their prison. He is the Ultimate Lucky Student, so perhaps his luck will keep him and his friends safe from danger.|
| ||Monokuma||This monochromatic bear is the mascot of Spike Chunsoft's Danganronpa series. Sure, he may look pretty cute - barring that weird red eye of his - but he's actually the main antagonist of the series. He's a psychotic little bear, who was created to infect the 'Ultimates' of Hope's Peak Academy with despair. Though he may have an obsession for murder and causing grief, he also has a softer, sillier side, and a great love of fish.|
