 Discontinuation of Regulations
During the first Chapter, the first person to break one of the rules, Rule 5, was Junko Enoshima. She got angry at Monokuma and kicked him. The Monokuma bear exploded, only for another Monokuma bear to show. This Monokuma bear threw the "Spears of Gungnir" at Enoshima, puncturing her body and killing her.
