Doki Doki Literature Club Wiki

Hey, hold up! This page may contain a lot of spoilers.
It's recommended you play the game first before you read the article.


Act 4 is the fourth and final act of Doki Doki Literature Club!. In this act, everything in the world seems to be back to normal, with the exception of Monika's absence. The protagonist decides to join a club by his own volition and, encountering Yuri and Natsuki's friendly disposition to one another and Sayori, convinces him to stay and fill the quota needed to make the Literature Club official.

After Yuri and Natsuki leave the room, Sayori starts talking to the protagonist, but then she talks directly to the player. She comments how she is now the club president, and therefore, she is now self-aware and knows about everything that happened earlier. Sayori then decides to pick up where Monika has left off in Act 3, but Monika is revealed to not be quite gone and deletes Sayori before she can do anything else.

Monika concludes that there is no happiness in the Literature Club, primarily because one character has to be president, and being one gives the character a revelation that drives them to insanity. Monika then decides to erase the whole game, but before she does so, she presents the player a song she saved called "Your Reality." It plays as the credits roll until the final end screen that depends on what the player has done before Sayori's suicide.

  • If the player did not save and load throughout the game, the CGs will be deleted soon after they appear in the credits sequence. The CGs that were never unlocked will appear in the credits with a grey filter. The note left behind is Monika's notice that the Literature Club has been disbanded and how she still loves everyone.
  • If the player saved and loaded and looked at all the 10 CGs, Sayori won't attempt to continue where Monika had left off in Act 3 but rather thanks the player for being thoughtful about making everyone happy. The credits will appear, but this time the CGs won't be deleted. The note left behind is a heartfelt "thank you" message written by the developer.

Afterwards, any interaction with the game will cause an error message to appear, prompting the player to delete and reinstall the game in order to play again. An offline alternative is to delete "firstrun," found in the game's files, which allows the player to perform a hard reset.


  • If the player restores Monika's character file after starting a new game, it will prompt a message saying, "Please stop playing with my heart. I don't want to come back," and it will delete the character file. If the player restores Monika's character file a second time, Monika will delete the file again without notifying the player. This is not possible in Doki Doki Literature Club Plus!, as you can't add back Monika's file in that new version of the game.
