Unlike the games in Liar Game, the rules of a Danganronpa game are sometimes made up or stated midway, which for me kind of sucks but is tolerable so long as the rules are consistent.

In Liar Game, afaik, the dealers have always accounted for all possible situations so whenever there are changes in the game, they state it outright. For example, in games involving voting, the dealers have stated what happens in the event of a draw.


Suppose in a Danganronpa game starting with 15 students,

  1. all murders are committed by exactly one person (no collaborative murders during the act, but before or after the act is fine, assuming there would be some incentive) and to exactly one person (no multiple victims)

  2. all murderers are successfully guessed and convicted (iirc, this is by majority vote) so long as there are more than 3 players

  3. No one dies in a way other than being murdered. So, no one messes with Monokuma, dies of an accident, dies of health conditions (eg asthma) or naturally (eg old age), etc, but suicide is fine.

  4. No murders will be hidden from the other students indefinitely, as in all corpses will be discovered or if the body is burned, then there will be enough evidence to say a murder has taken place and thus enough evidence for a classroom trial to be called.

Assuming the above situation is consistent internally and consistent with the initial set up of a Danganronpa game, such game will eventually come down to 3 students, whom I'm going to call Kotonoha, Yuno and Mion.

Suppose further:

  1. The game continues (so it's not declared a draw between the 3).

  2. Yuno dies, not of suicide or accident but murdered by Kotonoha or Mion.

  3. If there is a corpse (body is not burned or anything), it will be discovered. If none, Yuno's death is discovered in another way.

  4. Despite insufficient witnesses, a classroom trial will be called.

Questions:

  1. So what happens in the event of a drawn vote between the two?

  2. Generally, whenever there are an even number of voters in a classroom trial, what happens in the event of a drawn vote? Since it's not a majority, everyone but the culprit dies?

I would like to know what are the stated rules regarding this, if any, and from any media.


If I made any logical errors either internally (inconsistent with itself) or externally (inconsistent with Danganronpa), please point them out.

PS I'm done with the anime. Go ahead and spoil other media. But please use spoiler tags for others.

PPS Re 'Kotonoha, Yuno and Mion'

Don't spoil please.

  • This condition will not achieved, because there are must be 3 witnesses. That rule was created to avoid condition like this. – Septian Primadewa Jan 27 '16 at 10:36
  • @SeptianPrimadewa Okay what about in general? (the second question) – BCLC Jan 31 '16 at 8:09
  • @SeptianPrimadewa Wait it's a draw if it comes down to 3 people? – BCLC Jan 22 '18 at 10:27

  1. all murders are committed by exactly one person (no collaborative murders during the act, but before or after the act is fine, assuming there would be some incentive) and to exactly one person (no multiple victims)

This rule is false. One person can have an accomplice, but it's better not to, and second of all, they can kill at most 2 people.

Other than that, do you mean everyone voted in an equal 50/50? Or is it a 40/60?

  • If it's the 50/50, the people that voted wrong I believe would die.
  • If it's the 40/60, the majority vote wins. It means if 40% voted right, the murderer gets away with it killing everyone, but if the opposite is true, the murderer gets his punishment.
  • 'This rule is false' --> You are vacuously right because 'this' was not a rule. It was an assumption for my question about a drawn vote. You said 'the people that voted wrong I believe would die' --> What is the basis for your belief? – BCLC Jan 22 '18 at 10:25
  • Also I guess you're answering for question 2. What about question 1? – BCLC Jan 22 '18 at 10:27
