Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony

MUSIC: Beautiful Lie

...Really? I should open it?

I believe this treasure chest is saying you should open it, Shuichi!

I'm getting the sense that she thinks it's dangerous and wants *me* to open it.

...Alright, fine.

No, that's too dangerous. We should inspect it—

Hm? It'll be okay. Even the flashlight is saying, "Turn me on!" "Turn me on!" "Hurry up and turn me on, Shuichi!" It's begging you.


Then I'll meet you halfway and inspect this flashlight myself.

*That's* meeting me halfway? And how are you going to inspect it?


Angie snatched the flashlight from me.

Let's meet at the gym, Shuichi! I'll go get the others, you just hurry over!

What? Why are we meeting in the gym?

You'll get it once you arrive! Bye-onara!

I don't know what she's planning... but I might as well do as she says.

Inspecting the chest again gets you no dialogue at all. The cursor just changes back immediately.

We all here? Good! Then let's bow our heads and pray to Atua.

Alrighty then, check this out.

Umm, I dunno what it is either. I inspected it pretty good...

Nyahahaha, but in the end I couldn't figure it out.

So I asked someone for help.

...You don't mean—

MUSIC: Mr. Monokuma's Lesson V3

If you don't know something, I'll tell you. If you need help, I'll help you.

If you don't like something, I'll fix it. So don't get rid of it... Please don't get rid

Very bad when lady who act like that preys on you.

Huh? Do you know that from personal experience?

A...Flashback Light?



Lost memories...?

You guys seemed concerned that you couldn't remember how you came to this school...

But if you use that Flashback Light, you can remember everything!

What...? With this light?

What did you do to us, and how did you steal our memories away?

Hmm, maybe if you use the Flashback Light, you'll be able to remember that, too.

I bet there were a lot of naysayers and skeptics when the telephone was invented, too.

For your information, the Flashback Light can treat various symptoms of memory loss. The light it emits stimulates the basal ganglia and hippocampus. Not just that, but physical—

Phew, I didn't realize how boring it would be to explain. Basically, it works like that...

MUSIC: Nightmare in the Locker

So...what should we do?

What should we do...? You mean, should we or should we not use the flashlight?

Yeah. Gonta no can believe flashlight can bring back memory.

Well, why not ask someone who knows machines? We've got the Ultimate Inventor right here.

You're all a bunch of Ultimate Dumbasses! No fuckin' way that thing can treat amnesia!

So in such an uncanny environment as this, common sense has no place.

Well, I mean, there are those neuralyzer things. The flashy things from Men In Black...

Why are you talking about a movie? This is real life.

Y-You're right... Sorry.

Nyeeeh... I'm worried how it will affect my magic.

...Has everyone spoken? If we're in accord, I will consent as well.

What? Ah, I—

MUSIC: Becoming Friends

Huh? Who decided that? We were all saying how dangerous it sounds...

Geez, you guys are way too cautious. I mean, I understand why. We're in such a weird situation, after all.


If you want to win, you've gotta be a little reckless sometimes. If we can't face this danger, there's no way we'll be able to defeat Monokuma.

Yeah, I've got no clue. But still...

If we run away, our kids will grow up to be the kinda people who run away from things like this!

...Huh? What are you talking about?

If you still wanna run away, then go ahead. I won't stop you or blame you.

Okaaay, fine. Then, let's go—


Gonta also stay... Is what true gentleman would prolly do.

I also agree with Kaito. Our defeat is 100% assured unless we stand up to this.

You hear it in your ghost? I'm pretty sure robots don't have ghosts, though.

...Leave me alone.

I shall stay as well. I suspect I will be able to observe something most interesting...

If anything happens to me, y'all better beg my fans, the world, and humanity for forgiveness!

I-I... I'll stay behind too.


It seems everyone agrees with Kaito. Very well, I shall follow suit.

Hmph, *now* it's decided. Hurry up and do it.

Then I'm gonna turn it on!




:siren:VIDEO: Shuichi's Flashback Light:siren:


Like a video in fast-forward, scenes played out in the back of my head. When the pieces of my psyche had gathered together again...


MUSIC: Wonderful Story

From...the Ultimate Hunt. Those of us with Ultimate talents were hunted down. I wasn't safe anywhere... Eventually...I had no place else to run. I was cornered, and to escape from the Ultimate Hunt...

If I didn't do what I did, I would have been captured, a fate worse than death. And so...I chose.

Technology that could put your memories to sleep by controlling your brain waves. I used that to hibernate all memories relating to my talent.

In order to escape the Ultimate Hunt, I erased my own memory—


You guys, too!? So it wasn't just me getting chased down in this Ultimate Hunt...

Yes, you were not the only one., we... were being chased as well.

What Kirumi said was true... We were all the same. We were all running from the Ultimate Hunt.

What on Earth does that mean?

Oh, wait... Can someone tell me what that is? I...can't seem to remember.

Geez, how could you forget something so important? Alright guys, the Ultimate Hunt is... ...

MUSIC: Rise of the Ultimates

I can't either...

I suddenly realized... I could not remember any important details of the Ultimate Hunt...

I can't remember anything else at all.

Yeah, no matter how hard I try, I can't seem to remember—


AUDIO: Mysterious Device

MUSIC: Nightmare in the Locker

What...was that? "I want to die with everyone else"? I...remember saying that, but why did I say it...?

Ugh, this feels gross. Like a shit that won't fully squeeze out.

Even if we can't remember, we should still be able to figure something out...

...Hm? What you mean?

Huh? Why? the Ultimate Hunt?

You mean, we tried to escape by erasing our memories, but they found us anyway... And subsequently, we were captured as part of this Ultimate Hunt?

Then, this killing game is...

If that is so...then I am all the more concerned about this Ultimate Hunt.

But, but how disappointing! No one can remember anything!

Nyahahahaha! What a disappointing disappointment!

Quit laughin' about this, you little shit!


Rantaro... He seemed to know more than he let on.

MUSIC: Living in a Lazy Parallel World

Does the term Ultimate Hunt ring a bell for anyone?

Hmmm... Our mild-mannered mystery man said that, huh...?

But then...why did only Rantaro remember the Ultimate Hunt?

There is no point discussing that now. After all, he is already dead.

MUSIC: Mr. Monokuma's Lesson V3

Says the root of all evil...

Puhuhu... Looks like you guys safely got your memory back.

Looks like your sealed memories are more stubborn than I thought...

You're such a terrible liar. You totally did that on purpose.

What connection do you have with the Ultimate Hunt?

Puhuhu... I can't reveal that. Regardless of my true identity, my goal is crystal clear.


MUSIC: Beautiful Lie

We just gotta work together. If we cooperate, we'll make it out of here alive.


But I believe cooperating with each other is the most logical course of action—

Whoa! Huh, what!?

Hey, Kokichi...we're having a serious conversation here.

And is it written somewhere that I have to take serious conversations seriously?

Tch, quit acting so immature!

But I don't have a biological age...

Don't worry about it, Keebo. I'm just talking to the humans right now!


So you *were* listening, you horrible degenerate.

We don't have to work together, though. Let's just ask how we can get out.

If we ask Monokuma, he'll say the only way is to win the killing game.

MUSIC: Rise of the Ultimates


A-Are you already goin' senile!? I thought we agreed that there is no mastermind?

Hm, oh yeah. We did, didn't we?

You'd better quit messing around!

Eh? You think I'm messing around right now?

Aw man, you really don't get it. I'm trying to get this through to everyone... If you keep saying all this uplifting stuff about working together and cooperating...

What are you suggesting, Kokichi?

Aaahh! He's gonna punch me! I gotta make a break for it!

MUSIC: Beautiful Lie

Geez...what a strange guy.

He just provokes people and never says anything from the heart. He's always messing around and making fun of those around him.

Hmph! How can he say such insensitive things when we're trying so hard to survive!


Yeah. I don't plan to survive till the end.

You not plan to survive? What that mean?

He has mentioned that before... That he has no reason to live.

He doesn't have a reason to live?

It seems he's got a more tragic past than we could even begin to imagine...

Yeah, but the Ultimate Tennis Pro shouldn't be saying such cowardly stuff...


Everyone, could you please tell me your favorite foods and beverages?

Huh!? You're going to whip something up!? Kirumi, are you, like, the perfect mom!?

we decided to return to our rooms.

I sure have! I just avoided putting them in screencaps so that people wouldn't ask questions. :ssh:

You can collect Hidden Monokumas by investigating them.

They're fun to look for when you want to take a little break from everything.

Anyway, what is the Ultimate Hunt? It's still bothering me... And...why did Rantaro know? But I suppose I won't get anywhere thinking about it by myself. Time for action...

There's still some time left today... I need to think of a plan!
