If you count a stuffed animal being shot to death, then sure.

One execution involves a character getting thrown into an active volcano-you see them fall in and get fried to death.

In Chapter 2, someone gets their eye injured badly enough to need an eye patch. In Chapter 6, there's a brief graphic mention of eye mutilation done in the past.

One character was kidnapped as a child, and technically they were all kidnapped and taken to the island.

Danganronpa 2 has everyone possessed with the "Despair disease," aswell as the ending connecting something close to possession in 2 ways.

This is really up to debate on whether they count as ghosts. YMMV on the following. [SPOILERS] In the final chapter, All of the characters who died until that point briefly reappear with none of the alive characters questioning it and acting as normal. These aren’t really ghosts, moreso illusions brought upon by the simulation glitching out. Chiaki reappears in the climax to help Hajime during his identity crisis but considering her status as an AI and the glitching state of the virtual world, it’s more likely remnants of her programming rather than an outright ghost.

Most of chapter 3 takes place in the hospital as several characters are sick.

Some characters are kept in a hospital when they have "Despair Disease", which causes them to act very differently from their normal personalities. Figured I'd mention that just in case.

One of the characters' executions heavily features needles, and it has been implied by many fan theories that the entire sequence is a metaphor for a lethal injection.

SPOILERS — Nagito Komaeda, has lymphoma and frontotemporal dementia. However, this information can only be found out by playing his free time events, which is optional.

As with all the danganronpa games, there is a suicide. It's during the 5th trial.

In chapter 3 there is a moment where a character cuts open their own stomach. In chapter 5, a character extremely violently self harms by stabbing themself several times in the leg, their arm, and then stabbing the knife through their hand. In chapter 6, it is revealed that off-screen a character cut off their own hand.

While the characters usually panic during the end of trials, I don't count any of the panics in this game as anxiety attacks.

One of the killers starts rambling about their “beloved” leading up to the execution, although it isn’t confirmed what exactly was meant by that in this game. The anime has more information.

By and large, I'd say no, but the 4th chapter locks you in a building with no way to get out.

I'm not sure where this fits, but one of the characters removed the womb of a dead woman and put it into her own body in a twisted attempt to have children with the corpse.

One of the students is a girl that gets into sexually explicit poses through her clumsiness, and there are other students that comment on sexuality. There is also an optional scene where you can view two of the students (both female) in the nude (censored).

A couple characters are implied to have been sexually assaulted before, specifically akane and mikan. And teruteru is presented as being really perverted.

the ableism towards nagito is pretty explicit, frequent and unavoidable, and participated in by basically everyone else in the game. he even gets tied up and restrained by some of the other students because they deem him dangerous for being the “crazy/insane” character.

Towards Byakuya, mainly from Hiyoko, although Fuyuhiko also refers to him by fatass. Byakuya doesn’t seem to care about any of this and seems to embrace it if anything, but this still may be triggering for other people.

[Spoiler] It's quite true that LGBT characters die, but the rundown of precise identities by the previous commenter is somewhat misleading, making it seem like all of these queer characters are potentially progressive, positive representation suffering only from a case of Bury Your Gays. Hanamura Teruteru is a jokey horndog character of the would do anything with a hole and also probably anything without one" type, a fairly tired stereotype of bi/pan people. Mikan Tsumiki's a very fetish-y character aimed at a specific straight male playerbase, and her f/f scenes (mostly in the DR3 anime) are blatantly intended as fanservice for that audience. Mikan fanservice scenes can be extremely uncomfortable, especially for female/female-aligned viewers, although this is very much a YMMV matter and there's no category for "creepy alienating male gaze" on this site.

(Replying to the previous comment) SPOILERS!!! Just because some people HEADCANON him to be something, that doesn't mean he actually is. Get your facts straight. The Ultimate Imposter's real appearance is that of a chubby man in his early twenties, he has long, black hair and green (?) eyes. He is male, and I have never heard anyone refer to him as nonbinary.

The fate of the survivors is left ambiguous, but leans towards the happier side. The DR3 anime does show what happens to them afterwards but this information is not available in this game.

the blood in danganronpa is hot pink if that prevents your trigger, though the death in chapter five is very graphic imo, and depicts a characters limbs and stomach being impaled.

Yes, one character gets choked for a short period of time in a fight with another character. You hear them struggling. However, they do not die from this.
