@ user icallitjustice, the point of this site is to warn people of potentially upsetting themes in media so they can watch without fear. Some people are sensitive to things that you might not be sensitive to. If this bothers you enough to make a comment about it, you should get off the website.

The fourth wall is broken a lot the more you play the game, with some characters addressing you the player and not the character you play as

The episode "Little Gift Shop of Horrors" mostly consists of Stan talking directly to the viewer. There's also some camera interaction, including Stan knocking the viewer out and putting them in an exhibit. This episode is non-canon and doesn't really have any impact on the series, so you can skip it if this is triggering for you.

Constantly, in like every episode. That is intentionally the style of this show, it's mockumentary style.

Particularly in the later episodes, there is a significant plotline of one of the main characters, Dr. Coomer, becoming aware that he's inside a video game and isn't real.

Kind of? The film is a found footage/documentary format. There are documentary/informational scenes where a character addresses her audience and gives details about Alzheimer’s

Near the end of the game, strange glitching visuals and repeating dialogue give off the effect that the game itself is malfunctioning. One character repeatedly mentions that all of the characters are trapped in a “game,” but is not aware of their existence inside of the actual Danganronpa game, which their monologue could be interpreted as alluding to.

Yes the 4th wall is broken constantly. " You know that was just a TV show, not real!" "There's no such thing as Rescue Rangers, case closed, and we are not detectives!" This movie is very self aware and self conscious.The premise says that Rescue Rangers are just actors, not the characters we know and love,and that all cartoons are just actors, not make believe characters in their own world- breaking the 3rd wall. A main character talks to the audience constantly breaking the 4th wall.

On a first playthrough, this will likely not come up, but both twist endings have fourth wall breaks. To avoid them, don’t go to the Polyhedron or Theatre if you are invited on the final day. (SPOILERS) In the first, it’s revealed that whole story has been a game by two children playing with dolls. In the second, it’s acknowledged that the entire thing, including the first twist, is a video game and therefore fake, and the player can talk to the representations of the developers.
