Zero and Monokuma by Sixala Zero and Monokuma by Sixala
Because both are great mascots to great games.
Though I've to admit I like Zero III a bit more than Monokuma haha.

Zero: "You just stabbed her? You should've forced someone to decide to stab her! And then announce who it was!"

Zero III (c) Zero's Escape: Virtue's Last Reward -3DS
Monokuma (c) Dongan Ronpa -PSP

A beary hare-raising tail, starring the masters of terrible puns Zero the Third and Monokuma.

oh cool, haven't given Zeros' escape a try yet, but from the looks of it here and going by how the tone seems looks like it'll be a great dangan ronpa like supsense. interesting mascot design for Zero III, lots of vibrant colors

Gameplaywise it's like dongn ronpa, lotsa story to read decisions to be made and puzzle rooms to solve.
aside from that it's kinda different and I feel like the story has a lot more to give than dongan ronpa, but I guess that's because of the paralel timelines you have to go through to unveil the entire story. x3

But when I first saw monokuma I directly thought of Zero, because it's this "oh hey a cute animal is guiding you through this hell you're trapped in" thing.

and yeah zeros is quite something designwise haha.

yeah, I think it's partially due to Dangan Ronpa having an anime, but it's interesting to see how much more mainstream DR got when it's officially not even translated for us yet and we don't have the game either. 

eh, that actually ended up discouraging me a bit from more thoroughly checking it out, not a huge fan of time travel in stories as of late.

and yup, lots of bold colors

yeah and the Zero's escape franchise is even a year older(999), but I guess it's also the fact that Zero's Escape is DS and Dongan Ronpa is PSP.

and yeah I know it seems kind aurgh this is so much to go throguh blergh, BUT SERIOUSLY the story is SO GOOD.

yeah, the parallels are interesting, and I thought the DS was more popular than the PSP actually, I'm not sure that had a huge effect. it's hard to say, I find it peculiar how differing the fanbase sizes are given the similarities in content and how we don't even have any DR stuff officially translated.

sounds promising and worth a shot. for these type of games I tend to enjoy reading archives of more or watching uncommentary LPs since I tend to suck at the puzzles to them, but I'll probably end up picking it up anyway in time.

Iknortie? I also thought DS things would be more popular, but I guess it's the anime
 I mean DP isn't even out here and yet it's so popular because of the anime.
 yet there barely even is a Zero's escape fanbase which is sad >:
there are extra archieves in the game and lots of extra files you can get and in generel it's a lot to read and the story is pretty neat too. it's totally worth it!

I usually try the puzzles and then look at a walkthrough *guilty*

yeah, some situations with popularity levels get puzzling.

at first I was about to say it's because of the characters, but looking up the designs I actually like the Cast of Zero's Escape more than DanganRonpa at least design wise.  I like monobear as a mascot type character a bit more than Zero, but that's mainly because I already thoroughly know his personality and like his design, I like Zero's design but I can't say much other than that since I haven't tried it yet. 

It's weird, I rather like Dangan Ronpa, but I don't like a majority of the cast of the first game, just the designs ended up extremisms of cliches like anime fandom or obnoxious split personalities.

Dangan Ronpa 2 is a different story and I love the cast much more as a whole, but that's a different story

Zero's Escape characters are about even in my opinion in terms of DR 2 in degrees I like them, but it's Dangan Ronpa 1 right now that's really popular and leading into DR 2 fandom, not necessarily DR 2 itself that got popular on it's own. 

it's a shame how that can go sometimes with popularity.

heh, if I end up playing it I'll probably end up looking at a walkthrough most of  the time anyway XD
