(THIS GUIDE CONTAINS SPOILERS, I WOULD ADVISE PLAYING THE GAME BEFORE READING.)
This guide will help you get the best ending in Doki Doki Literature Club!
There are 3 endings, and we will focus on the happy ending.
Now, nothing really matters, since you dont get any options before the first poem. When you get to the point where you write your first poem, save the game. Once you do that, time to write a poem!
It doesnt matter what order you do the girls in, but I started with my favourite girl, Yuri! But you can direct it to whoever you want to.
Yuri likes deeper, sophisticated words, example: landscape, afterimage, disoriented, starscape, lust, journey, fester, existence, anxiety. If your character feels interested in Yuri, and you start to read with her, your in the clear. But if your character goes to Sayori or Natsuki, load your poem save and try again.
Natsuki is a cute tsundere, she gave me alot of trouble to get her cause i kept confusing her with Sayori, but i was able to get it after a bit. She likes cutesy words, here’s a few words of her’s: bunny, twirl, hop, pout, poof, doki-doki, and of course, anime. If your character hears Natsuki get angry, and he goes over to the closet where she is, your in the clear. But if your character goes to Yuri or Sayori, load your poem save and try again.
Sayori is your secretly depressed childhood friend. She likes melancholy, childhood, romantic words, here’s some: warm, childhood, pain, memories, charm, fear, family, bed, fireflies, ocean, tears, romance. If your character starts listening to Sayori and Monika’s conversation, your in the clear. But if your character goes to Natsuki and Yuri, load your poem save and try again.
JUST MONIKA JUST MONIKA JUST MONIKA JUST MONIKA JUST MONIKA JUST MONIKA JUST MONIKA JUST MONIKA JUST MONIKA JUST MONIKA JUST MONIKA JUST MONIKA
Once you finish your poem directed who you chose, the rest doesnt matter, nothing changes for which poem you pick first and last. For the argument, it also doesnt matter, but I went for whoever I chose (defend Natsuki if Natsukis chosen, Yuri if shes chosen, or ‘Help me, Sayori!’ if you chose her).
Go for whoever you were originally going for, if your first poem was directed to, say, Natsuki, then make this one for Natsuki too, and this goes for Yuri and Sayori and Monika too. If you want to, you can save the game before any words are placed, or if you feel confident in your poem making, then dont bother. If your poem fails, the reload the poem 2 save or load your latest save.
For “I would walk home with —-, ” it doesnt matter, but depending on who I go for, I pick them (it doesnt really matter though.)
Time to write another poem!
JUST MONIKA J US T M ON I K A J U S T M O N I K A J U S T M O N I K A
Time to write another poem! Again, direct it to the girl of choice and feel free to save, unless you dont need to.
When you finish your poem and go to the literature club, you will notice Sayori is feeling a bit off, no matter who you pick. But not much to notice besides that, share poems, and go pick someone for the weekend!
Now, you dont need to pick the weekend with the girl you been picking, but it helps me keep track. You cant pick the weekend with Sayori and Monika, but you can for Yuri and Natsuki, so pick whoever.
Time to spend the weekend with [Girl’s name]!
The weekend / Sayori’s confession.
Now, this is where the first save truly comes into play, nothing matters, so feel free to put the game on auto until…
Sayori Confesses to us
Sayori confesses her love after you spend the weekend with Yuri or Natsuki. This is where your first save comes into play. Pick ‘I love you’ no matter if Sayori was chosen or not, when your character hugs her, time to act. Dont skip too far, or Sayori will die and you wont be able to load your game, but whats important is that you load the first poem save BEFORE Sayori dies. Its important that its BEFORE she dies, or else you will have to go to the game files and manually delete the file called “firstrun,” this will restart the game.
If all goes well, you should be able to go back to the first poem save.
First poem save.
If all went well, you should have said ‘I love you’ to Sayori, you loaded the first poem save before she died, and now time to write a poem!… again.
Since you directed your poem to one girl, do another, use the First poem. as a guide if you need to.
Now, do the exact same thing you did again, lets say you directed your poems to Natsuki, this time direct it to, say, Sayori, and do the exact same thing again, then direct it to, say, Yuri one final time.
If you picked, say, Natsuki to spend the weekend with, spend it with Yuri next time, and the final time, doesnt matter. If you did it right, you should have got 2 special images for Natsuki, Yuri, and Sayori, and 1 special image for spending the weekend with either Natsuki and Yuri, if you spent time with them all, the next time Sayori confesses, say either option to Sayori, that you love her or dont, but whats important is that you dont load the save after you spent time with them all. Sayori will die, and the game forgets about her and moves on to Act 2
Act 2 and 3, and the ending, act 4.
If all went well, Sayori should be dead and everyone (including the MC) should have forgotten her, you spent time with all 3 girls, spent the weekend with both Natsuki and Yuri, and Monika should be glitching the game out.
Play act 2 normally, it doesnt matter if you direct the words to Natsuki or Yuri, cause after you do, Yuri will always be chosen, so Natsuki has an excuse to snap. Nothing can be changed here, Natsuki will snap, Yuri will die, and Monika deletes the characters after you spend the weekend with Yuri. Which leads us to act 3.
Act 3, like act 2, will proceed as normal, you will be in a room with Monika talking for eternity. Little does she know, you can delete her. To do this if you dont know, right click DDLC, > Manage > Browse local files > Characters > Monika, and delete her, I dont think you need to empty the trash, but if it doesnt work then, then empty it. Monika will still love you, and restore the characters, which leads you to act 4.
Act 4, the finale.
Act 4 is when it gets a bit happier. Instead of Sayori going rogue because shes the president, she notices how you spent time with each of them instead of just one (even if you spend time with her the most she still gets mad), and is truly proud of you. Instead of Monika butting in and deleting everything, Sayori gives you a dev note and roll credits. Now when you open Doki Doki Literature Club! after the credits, instead of Monika’s ‘the literature club is no place for happiness’ note, its a note from Team Salvato thanking you. And with that is the happiest Doki Doki Literature Club! ending!
Unfortunately this is the happiest it gets, Monika is right and there truly is no happiness in the literature club, and everyone still dies, but its alot better then Sayori going rogue as the president.
Hey! Thanks for reading my guide on the happy ending in Doki Doki Literature Club! Since im assuming you all actually read this, heres a quick ending for you! Delete Monika before the game even opens, then start a new game, Sayori will start to cry and then you get the ending (note you will have to install your game to play normally)! Pretty easy right? Hope its alot easier then this ending. Sorry if you got confused, im not the best at grammar, spelling is fine, but its hard for me to put words together, either way, hope you found this ending happier than the default ending! Have a good day!
Get out of my head before I do what I know is best for you.
Get out of my head before I listen to everything she said to me.
Get out of my head before I show you how much I love you.
Get out of my head before I finish writing this poem.
But a poem is never actually finished.
It just stops moving.
