For her appearance in the original game, go here.

Monika (モニカ) is the poster girl of Doki Doki Literature Club! and President of the Literature Club. She also serves as a character in the side stories in Doki Doki Literature Club Plus!.

Appearance

Monika has extensively long coral brown hair that she keeps in a high ponytail tied back with a large white bow, curled slightly at the ends. Like the other characters, she has two prominent strands of hair beside her bangs that reach slightly past her chest. Her eyes are emerald green. She is of average height by Japanese standards, believed to be the second tallest character behind Yuri.

She wears the standard female school uniform consisting of a warm gray[3] blazer, brown sweater vest, white shirt, red ribbon, dark blue pleated skirt, black thigh-high socks and white uwabaki slippers with pink tips.

Personality

This version of Monika is portrayed as an over-the-top perfectionist with impossible standards for herself unlike the original game Doki Doki Literature Club. This has been shown through a scene where Monika couldn't even write anything on a piece of paper due to the fact that she was too focused on starting the writing perfectly. She was only left with a black spot of ink that she smeared on the top of the page while writing underneath that this was the result of her being a perfectionist. In the beginning Monika found herself being quite closed minded when it came to what her idea of what the literature club should be, as she discovered that she wasn't accepting all members into the club fairly. This was displayed when she wasn't keen on letting Natsuki join the literature club because her only mentioned interest was manga.

Monika often tries to be a leader and deal with conflicts between club members, although she has stated herself that dealing with conflict is not her strong suit. During one of the Side Stories, Monika tried to resolve a conflict between Natsuki and Yuri by having a discussion, but this proved useless and only made the situation worse. Monika felt bad, and while talking to Sayori, she mentioned how she shouldn't try to resolve other people's conflicts from this point forward.

As shown throughout the timeline of Doki-Doki Literature Club, Monika takes the Literature Club very seriously, which was part of the reason why she was reluctant on letting Natsuki join the club. Monika tries her best to help the other members through conflict. She comforted Sayori when she wrote the poem about depression, holding her in a friendly embrace and telling her that she didn't need to force herself to speak on the matter more. Monika also helped Yuri write a letter in apology to Natsuki when Yuri came to her for help. Monika sat down and talked Yuri through it, helping her write something meaningful and something that didn't sound blameful.

Monika tends to beat herself up in certain situations, opting to say the phrase "What good leader..." when she feels as though she has failed as club leader. Sayori often reminds Monika that she is a great leader, which stops any of Monika's self-doubt.

Trivia

  • As stated by Monika herself, Natsuki was the reason Monika started playing piano.
  • Monika made a song for the Literature club called "My Song, Your Note" on the piano.
    • Interestingly enough, the conversation between her and Natsuki in the music room during the second half of the Respect side story contained some familiar lines: "And I'm not really good at it yet. Like-at all. But...I wrote a song for the club. And I worked really, really hard on it. It doesn't have any words or anything, but...well, yeah." before playing the song.
      • These same lines despite some differences was the same used in the conversation from Monika to the player before started playing "Your Reality".
