If this song somehow ends up in Smash, I can die peacefully.
Ah yes, only the best song ever. A 100% perfect fit for smash bros where we can all just embrace despair and go onto the after life happily.

That being said I should be way more active in my own thread than I am.—

I'll get onto updating the main post again, though I will say the current... form of it is rather unappealing to look at. Does anyone have any ideas on how to improve the look of it?

Uhhh, uhhhhhhhhh https://nintendosoup.com/danganronpa-trilogy-listed-for-nintendo-switch-on-amazon-japan/
Edit: Augh, nevermind, wish I could delete posts. It says it's probably a mistake, ugh...
Wouldn't be the first time one of us here got slipped up on this kind of stuff, though nonetheless it does show to Spike Chunsoft Nintendo fans and fans of their work in general wants to see Danganrompa make the jump to Nintendo systems, which series like Neptunia are if I recall due to it basically replacing the Vita over in Japan. So I'm sure depending on the graphics of the next game since they were hiring people for 3D modeling for a Danganrompa game it'll also see a switch release due to the Vita being phased out. Plus anyways, as I believe I've pointed out before at least Monokuma himself has cameo'd on Nintendo systems in the past, about as many times as Cloud has actually prior to his inclusion in Smash.

I just got done with Danganronpa 2 due to my curiosity about the series getting the better of me, and I have only one thing to say:

Let me play as the despair bear
Welcome to the remnants of despair! We're glad to have you here.

Got any plans to eventually pick up 1 and V3?

Oh, yes, definitely. It's already one of my favorite series as of late. Though, I have already watched Danganronpa 1, so I'm thinking of picking up Ultra Despair Girls next.

Also, I've been looking at the moveset, and it's nice...

but we need more buff monokuma

I'll throw my support for the despair bear. I hope wait, shouldn't use that word if he got in, his Final Smash would be using the rocket from the first execution in the series. Make it work like Captain Falcon's.

One of the few characters who would have me hyped to see in Smash that isn't already deconfirmed (in the most despair-inducing ways imaginable), so can you add me to the support list?

I think it would be way cooler (albeit a lot harder to develop) if his Final Smash was Punishment Time, where it would be the victim's own Final Smash used against them, like Kirby's copy ability (and a placeholder for Monokuma Dittos). After all, everyone's gotta have their own special execution! Upupupupu...

Welcome every single one of you that joined the remnants of despair! Apologies for not adding you all to the support thread sooner, I don't check the site as frequentlly anymore so it's my fault you weren't added sooner.

I actually never thought of that one, it would most definitely work as an all around final smash idea.

I don't think this has been posted here before, but our boy Monokuma's in this!
I've followed Krazy before for a bunch o their art as I like it, but I never knew they wanted Monokuma in, it's always nice to know a favorite artist of yours has similar tastes in newcomers.

Perhaps the only other difficulties about it (other than it being one for every single character) would be making sure the animations didn't look wonky on Monokuma, which I'm sure a lot would be that way on some, but I also feel likeanother big hurdle would be if there's more than two players on the field: what dictates what final smash he uses? Anyways, I think it's s great idea in concept but it's one that need to be executed very perfectly to work.

I meant to bring this up a while ago, but I found this list of characters people wanted in Smash Ultimate. While Monokuma didn't get as many votes as others on the list, the fact that he made it at all is honestly impressive.

Yeah, I think Source Gaming did a video based on this, albeit it's a tad different.

I'm honestly surprised Monokuma was placed 28th out of hundreds of characters they got, but it also makes me really happy, that while not in the top ten, we are in the top thirty, which is still really impressive given how many characters are requested for smash. Especially since there's a lot more Monokuma supporters than us out there, I hope one day we can all band together and get the bear of despair in!

If it makes you feel better, I think he has a bigger chance than people give him credit for.
The way I see it, Sakurai and Kodaka are at least professionally fans of one another. That's at least a tiny boost for his chances. I think what it would take for him to have a real, substantive chance is a port of the Danganronpa Trilogy to the Switch.

I recall Amazon or some other retailer accidentally claiming that would be happening at one point, but given their extreme clumsiness with stuff like that... eh. All I know is that I pray for his inclusion.

I'd rather have Junko using Monokuma as a weapon but considering that she's not as iconic as Mono himself (and a massive spoiler), i think our favourite little psycho bear would be more appropriate.

So, i support !

That could always be the case, even if she is a spoiler since well... Smash doesn't really care if you've played the games fully or not, Xenoblade Chronicles 1 representation during the Smash 4 days was enough to say that. But considering Monokuma is the series mascot, and Spike Chunsoft's go to character for crossover stuff like how Namco's is KOS-MOS from Xenosaga.

Regardless, welcome to our little band of remnants of despair!

So guys, now that we know 3 of the 5 DLC characters, how do you think this affects Monokuma's chances, if at all?
I honestly think his chances are probably lowered unless they do another pass, as I feel like if the last two slots are first-party Nintendo characters one of them will be (my guesses are either Porky or Sylux) while the other is someone from Namco Bandai, whether or be someone from Tales Of, Heihachi from Tekken, or KOS-MOS from Xenosaga I think someone from Namco Bandai will be getting that fourth slot, because besides Microsoft joining the mix with Banjo and Kazooie, (congrats to our fellow bear btw), they're the only company with a singular character representation, being Pac-Man.

SEGA has three with Sonic, Bayonetta, and Joker

Capcom has three with Mega-Man, Ryu, and Ken

Konami has three with Snake, Simon, and Ritcher

Then now Square Enix has two with Cloud and the Hero(es) from Dragon Quest.

So I only think it's natural one of those slots will be filled up for a Namco Bandai rep or two, or a Nintendo rep or two. So I think Monokuma can only happen this game if 1. There's more solo DLC characters or 2. Another fighters pass. Otherwise next game he's back to his normal chances of happening, if not potentially more. Especially considering Nintendo and Spike Chunsoft are collaborating on more games again like they have in the past, most recent example begin Cadence of Hyrule.
