As you progress the girls around you begin to lớn behave sầu oddly; starting to lớn glitch & act erratically before vanishing from the game one by one. You later find out that these strange incidents are the actions of the fourth-wall-breaking và infatuated club president Monika, who quickly becomes so smitten with you (not your character, YOU) that she manages khổng lồ break into lớn the game's code, completely rewriting her & the other girl's scripts. But who is she?

For curious players and fans who wish to lớn know more, here are some facts about the literature club's creepy, esteemed overseer that you may not have sầu noticed on your first playthrough.


The characters' name choices aren't random, & the choosing of Monika is no exception. Meaning "counselor" or "advisor", it reflects how her character was meant to be seen within the game as a person of kindness & guidance within the role of club president. But that's not all.

Although you wouldn't notice it at first, Monika was always meant lớn stvà out from the other girls. Because of this, she's given the only western name, unlike Sayori, Yuki, & Natsuki who all had a strong Japanese influence. As she confides in you at the over of the game that she always felt different, it can be assumed that this quality name only would have sầu added to lớn her feeling more isolated & alienated from the other characters.


Monika's chất lượng name wasn't her only difference, as she was purposely designed to st& out to you from the very beginning of the game, you just might not have realized it at the time.

Stylistically, Monika is the only girl to lớn have her hair tied baông xã, be wearing blachồng thigh-high socks instead of knee-length White, & have sầu pink-tipped shoes instead of xanh. Not only this but her sprite is always shown facing forwards towards the viewer instead of slightly lớn the side lượt thích her peers. As it is revealed that she has quality control over the game, it can be assumed that these differences were made lớn purposely try và catch the player's attention from the beginning.


When you go to tải về the game you'll notice that Monika is EXTREMELY present on the storefront, being the official image on Steam và also the author of the description, stating:

"Hi, Monika here!

I'm super excited for you khổng lồ make friends with everyone and help the Literature Club become a more intimate place for all my members. But I can tell already that you're a sweetheart—will you promise lớn spend the most time with me? ♥"

In this way, it seems like Monika is trying khổng lồ entice the player into lớn buying the game, having already become infatuated, and goes a long way in preluding everything to lớn come. Yikes.

Unless you've sầu watched a stream of someone playing the game, you've sầu probably never been privy to lớn Monika's awareness of exactly what you're doing whilst playing.

The first to stream the game quickly found themselves at the mercy of her horrific jumpscare, deliberately inputted inlớn the game when it detects that you may be streaming the nội dung to lớn other people online. She does seem khổng lồ have some moral compass though, as despite being able to learn your name from your computer she will never choose to release it if you're streaming.

Although it may always seem that Monika only wants the player due to lớn a deep-seated infatuation và obsession, there's definitely more to her longing than first meet the eye.

Monika tells you that when you're not playing she enters a 'sleep mode' which she equates to lớn "being trapped in hell". Here her thoughts are filled with incoherent, jumbled patterns, static, rapidly flashing colors, and, most ominously, screaming. It's assumed this is what happens when you're on the computer but not playing the game, therefore using her memory for other things. But still, it's a pretty horrific thought.

As Monika has some sentience whilst the game is not being played, she has a lot more time to lớn think than her peers. When having the large talk with her near the kết thúc of the game Monika heartbreakingly confides in you that she had had thoughts about deleting herself, not wanting to lớn live inside the game anymore.
