The Japanese work of Battle Royale

Before the popularization of Battle Royale games, since 1999 there has been a Japanese novel with exactly that title. In case you don't know, the term was originally used by Romans in their battles with more than 3 people.

The Battle Royale novel which in Japanese is Batoru Rowaiaru [バトル・ロワイアル] was written by Koushun Takami and was completed in 1996. For several years this work yielded mangas, films and almost had an American series on the CW.

The work shows a fictional Japan where young students are sent to an isolated island with collars and weapons in order to kill each other until one survives. This work served as inspiration for future works and even games of the same style.

In this manga/novel the battle is televised in a Program, where the high school students have to kill each other until there is only one left in 3 days, otherwise they will all be killed. Creating even more tension.

battle royale anime

There are some anime that followed the Battle Royale footprint as the most famous Btooom. In this anime, players of an online game are forced to fight to the death on an island using only bombs.

Another very interesting Battle Royale anime is called Danganronpa which mixes a bit of investigation and judgment. In fact, this anime is based on a visual novel game and had several seasons.

Mirai Nikki is another Battle Royale anime where a dozen people have to kill each other for the rest to become the God. They utilize journals that help in battle strategically in some way.

There are mangas like Doubt that look a lot like detective and assassin, in addition to the Ousama Game manga that even got a horrible anime adaptation that it's not even worth mentioning. We can't forget about the Real Account either.
