This part is incomplete.

Debris has a nexus with 8 doors, but the green door with flowers needs to be unlocked before it can be accessed like a normal door.

Purple and black checkered worldEdit

A world with a soft purple background and many purple and black pillars.

Going right 40 steps and all the way up leads you to the mouse effect.

Or, going up and right a little until you see two pillars close together and going straight up leads you to the mouse effect as well


  • Short pillar->Purple and black princess area (Rose Princess event location) -> Stabbing Room


Most events in Debris are random, or need a certain effect (usually the scissors). 


A random event when waking up is to find a cockroach running around Tatsuki's room. Getting close to it will cause his face to scrunch up, and walking over the bug kills it.


A random event that happens when entering the bed to dream. The screen goes completely black and a shining spotlight appears. The pattern of this spotlight may differ each time.

Broken TatsukiEdit

A Random event triggered by entering Tatsuki's bed in the dream world until he is warped to a sparkling area with a girl in the middle. Interacting with her teleports Tatsuki to another area with water and white fish running with legs. Keep going straight up to enter a cave. Tatsuki then climbs down a long ladder to a clearing with another Tatsuki, but with triangle holes. Talking or using the scissors effect breaks this other Tatsuki, and after that you need to use the Hole effect or Wake up to exit.

Static TVEdit

A random event upon entering the dream world, when interacting with the TV in his dream room, it has the chance to warp you to a very glitched world with invisible walls. Running around in this area is another Tatsuki without his bandana that is more transparent and ghost-like. The Tatsuki clone cannot be interacted with, and mirrors Tatsuki's movements. Unless you have the Hole effect, the only way to leave is to wake up.

TV EyeEdit

A random event upon entering the dream world, when interacting with the TV in Tatsuki's dream room, the TV has a chance to change into a station with only an eye on it. Interacting with this eye will make it laugh, and you cannot change the channel anymore.


A random event that may occur without warning while standing in the Nexus. The Nexus pattern spins and glows for a short amount of time.

School RaveEdit

Follow the instructions for the scissors effect to get to the school, but go to the far right door with a red eye on it, a screen with many spinning paterns and rave music will play.

School EventEdit

An event that was much more common in Version 0.05 of Debris but is now much more random and rare. First go to the school, and interact with the poster on the wall to turn the school into the broken-down/dilapidated school. Then enter the room where you got the Scissors effect in the normal school. An event will show Tatsuki trapped in the center of the room with the screen wavering and he will get knocked to the floor. Some more thumping sounds can be heard and he is repeatedly starting to repeat in a glitched way (similar to a movie skipping) and eventually starts breaking up. He lies on the floor on his back, bloody, for a few seconds before splitting into pieces again. After the event ends, it forces Tatsuki to wake up.


 Follow the instructions to get the Hand Mirror effect, but look for a square hole with lots of bubbles coming from it. Tatsuki is shown floating with a strong water current upwards. You can leave the event and go back to the underwater caverns.


Follow the instructions to get the Mirror effect, and through one of the underwater doors there will be an event of Tatsuki drowning, and then land in the snow world. There is no way to get back to the underwater caverns from the snow world.


Follow the instructions to get the Upside-Down effect, but explore all the doors until you come to a clearing with a table, two NPCs, and a view of outside. Simply walk up and interact with the view to show Tatsuki skydiving down.  The event continues until you press X, and you return back to the clearing.

Clones in the HospitalEdit

Follow the instructions to get the Card effect, but interact with the back to turn the hospital dark. The hallways should have changed, and keep going until you reach the far left door, then an area with many Tatsuki clones appear. The menu is inaccessible, and the door appears to be locked. After a few seconds, all of the Tatsuki's (including you) become wounded, most missing body parts such as legs, or arms. Your Tatsuki is without his torso, and his speed is slowed. The door is still locked, and eventually a mist covers the screen until Tatsuki is forced to wake up.

Glitch MenuEdit

If you talk to the menu changing doctor in the Hospital, there is a random chance you will get a glitched menu instead of the normal ones. All text is almost impossible to read, the pattern is made of gibberish, and the menu sounds are distorted and loud. Talking to the doctor again should solve the problem.

Sky ElevatorEdit

Follow the instructions for the Arm Clock/Eyeless effect to get to the blow maze. Enter the passageway with a big blue bottle next to it, and step on the flashing blue rectangle. Tatsuki slowly descends to the marketplace with balloons along the way.


While in the marketplace, kill any stick-figure NPC with the scissors effect. Immediately, pink birds will run at top speed at Tatsuki, and capture him. The screen goes black and various snipping, gurgling, and hacking sounds are heard, until the screen shows Tatsuki without his torso, sitting in a pool of blood in a cage with a marketplace NPC and various other NPCS surrounding him. Tatsuki then wakes up.

Nightmare RoomEdit

In the maze to get the rock effect, there is a door frame that leads to a small room with another door that is either locked or unlocked (the chance is random, just keep re-entering this room until the door in unlocked) pots and pans hanging from the roof, and a single NPC. If you have the pot effect, equipping it in this room causes the NPC to go for Tatsuki, and they take the pot effect. The pot effect then becomes inaccessible for the rest of that dream, but waking up regains the effect. Additionally, going through the locked door if it is open leads to a small space with hands, violent shaking and screaming.

Purple PrincessEdit

In the purple and black checkered world, going to the clearing with the purple princess and talking to her (the chance is random, just keep talking to her to trigger the event) and she will become tangled in thorns and roses while chasers appear. All connections to other worlds are closed off, so even with the Hand Mirror stopping the chasers, you need to wake up or use the Hole effect to get out. It should also be noted that using the Upside-Down effect while the princess is normal shows her with a big rose on her face for a second.


In the blue maze, there is one door that leads to an orange-pink small room with a big black stickman-like figure. Getting close and interacting with it triggers a fullscreen event of the figure embracing Tatsuki in a sort of hug, and Tatsuki then wakes up.

Glitched RoomEdit

The easiest way to access this is either follow the steps to the Purple Princess event, but head up into the next room, then down onto the bridge area, or, unlock the green door in the Nexus, and head north east to the white flower. From here, head north and enter the staircase, then down into the next room. Heading back into the previous room will show it blocked off by blob-like creatures, From here, go right and onto the bridge. Interacting with the chaser(via the unfenced area) will show her true form, as if you were using the Upside-Down effect. After a few times, she will teleport you to what appears to be your awake room, but she will be blocking the door. You cannot interact with her. If you walk up to the bed, the screen with static, and, when the static ends, your room becomes glitched, and there will be chasers all over, but the do not move and cannot be interacted, leaving the bed as the only option. Interacting with it leads you to an empty black area, and the only way to escape is with the Hole effect or waking up. You can only trigger this event once per dream.


Warning: Contains spoilers for the endings of Debris.

After each ending, there is a small "Thank You" screen.


Simply collect all 17 effects (on the menu it should say 18 though, because of the instructions being counted as an effect.) and exit Tatsuki's room in real life. Tatsuki is then shown sitting in a grassy field with the wind blowing, watching the afternoon sky and the clouds pass by.

to get Endings 2 or 3, you need to first unlock the red book with Lefia.

Collect all effects and then go to the palace-looking place (where you get the slime effect), and use the mirror effect and one of the doors on the top floor should become transparent. Enter this door (keep using the mirror effect, two chasers will be waiting for you when you enter this door) and you should be in a grey-brick looking area with broken TVs. Keep going up to see a glitched up version of Lefia, and trigger a close up of her. She should disappear from the throne. Wake up, and use should see an open red book on Tatsuki's floor. Interact with it to play as Lefia.


 After getting the red book, don't complete Lefia's part and leave Tatsuki's room. Tatsuki will then be outside along a forest-like path, if you keep going up then there is a small clearing with Tatsuki's corpse and what appears to be one of the chasers in her normal state on the floor. The camera then pans up to show the same scene from ED1, but without Tatsuki sitting in the grass.


To view ED3, just go down the forest path instead of up. The scene will change to Tatsuki looking at the red book for a few seconds, then change again; the final scene has Tatsuki sitting in the corner on his bed looking down.

Lefia's PartEdit

When playing as Lefia, you can enter her bed to save.


Belongings (もちもの) - View Lefia's current inventory, or view the instructions.   Action (こうどう) part of the menu, you can go back to her room (へやたもどる), or Stitch (とじる) to return to Tatsuki.   

As Lefia, you start out with many items in your inventory, and there are no effects to be collected in the book. Pressing the Action key will make her run faster. You can only go forward by interacting with the fluttering page at the corner of the bottom right, or the upper left to go back a page. Around the middle of each of these pages there is an empty toy box. Simply interact with all the toy boxes (You can take the items in and out of the toy boxes, a blue lid over the box means the item is in there), and at the final toy box Lefia's face darkens, and she starts to glitch out. As Lefia you go through what appears to be a very distorted version of Tatsuki's room, and leave though the front door. The book then closes, and you return to Tatsuki. Tatsuki shakes his head if you try to open the book again, and simply exit his room. From here Tatsuki holds his scissors, and Lefia stands blocking the path. You then have the option to keep going forward, or turn back. Turn back from where you came to view Ending 3.


There is also a fourth "true ending", where instead of turning back from Lefia blocking the path, face her with the scissors. Tatsuki then stabs Lefia, who then bursts into flames and turns to ash. Keep going forward, and similar to ED2, you will see the same corpses. Tatsuki will step back a bit, then face the camera with a grin and his tongue showing. He then goes back a bit, laughing, and runs all the way back. He is then shown holding Lefia's red book by a park with one of the calm chasers sitting on a swing set. The final screen has both of them walking down a road, but Tatsuki suddenly stops, drops the book, and charges at the girl with his scissors. He then starts laughing again and runs off screen, and the screen darkens. When the screen is black, you hear some static and other sounds, and the game returns to the title.
