The Footprint Path (足あと, Footsteps) is a small, dark passageway that connects Eyeball World to Hell.

Point of Interest[]

Footprint Path A[]

The Footprint Path is a long trail of footprints on a black, seemingly liquid floor. The path is surrounded by non-NPC monsters, but Madotsuki can only walk on the existing footprints.
In the first section, there are a series of strange characters known as Henkei Shita sitting by the road, each of a different color set. One of these creatures has an identical counterpart in Hell. They are a source of theoretical speculation.

A few of the Henkei Shita.

Footprint Path B[]

One of the characters in the second section

In this section, a different group of creatures known as Goppa can be seen. Like before, this strange group of monsters look alike but have different color schemes.
Unlike those characters, these ones are interactive, as they will react violently by opening their mouth and spurting a tiny bit of blood when the player pushes a nearby button. This button might possibly be a body part of the monsters as they respond whenever these are pushed, the corresponding coloration indicates that it's some kind of nerve which triggers the creature's reaction.

The background music in Footprint Path A is the same as in Mural World, while Footprint Path B has the same music as Puddle World, but played at half the speed.


  • The Eyeball World - Walk into the mouth of the blue head
    • The Footprint Path
      • Hell - Interact with the Nenrikido
        • The Footprint Path - 1/256 chance of being transported to Footprint Path A when you stab the Henkei Shita in the center of the maze with the Knife effect (one way arrive)


  • In older versions, the two Footprint Paths were not connected. In version 0.06, the two paths had the following connections:
    • Footprint Path A looked identical to later versions, but heading west led to Neon World, and heading east took you Lamp World.
    • Footprint Path B connected to Puddle World and Snow World via the west and south paths, respectively.
