— Danganronpa Chapter 1: The End of The Hope

The Survival Hope of Mutual Killing, called the Hope for Survival of Mutual Killing (相互殺害の生存希望, sōgo satsugai no seizon kibō) in Japanese, is a Killing School Game featured in Danganronpa Chapter 1: The End of The Hope.

The participants of the killing game are the twenty students of class 81-A.


The participants of the Killing Game are the students of the class 81-A of the Love's God Academy who's hosted by Monokuma and the Monokuma Kubs. Therefore, all of them were abducted by The Mastermind by a law erroneously approved by the director of the academy. The Mastermind took all of them to an abandoned building that had the characteristics of an academy away from the society that all of the students were lived. Later the students were placed a cockade in was write their name, their talent and a number that symbolized the order of the twenty students abducted. Later the students were placed in a same room that symbolized a classroom. Finally the mastermind infiltrates the game pretending to be another participant with the sole purpose of being able to supervise more closely the decisions of their classmates.

When all the students woke up they would be psychologically tested by Monokuma and the Monokuma Kubs to kill one or two of their classmates and then come to a school trial to execute the culprit. The cycle will continue repeating until there are only two students whit life or they can find the Mastermind.
