Ayano Aishi (a.k.a Yandere-chan or Yan-chan) is the main character of Yandere Simulator and an Akademi student.

Appearance (Default)


Hairstyle and uniform drafts of Ayano.[1]

Ayano Aishi has pale skin, dark grey eyes, and straight, mid-back length black hair. She stands at a height of 165 cm (5 ft. 5 in), weighs 43.5 kg (96 lbs.), [2] and has average-sized breasts. [3] Her hair is tied into a high ponytail with sharp bangs swept to the right, the middle one being the most prominent, and two strands of hair that frame her face, reaching to her shoulders. She's usually portrayed wearing the default school uniform: a white and navy blue sailor uniform shirt with a red mini scarf, a matching navy blue skirt, black thigh high socks, and black shoes. With all uniforms, she wears black thigh high socks. When in Buraza Town, Ayano will wear a teal-green shirt, blue denim skirt, black thigh high socks, black gloves, and sneakers.

The player can change the school uniform during intro part of the game. Ayano can also purchase hair dye and bleach her hair blonde, in order to meet one of the requirements for joining the delinquents. When she is a delinquent, her hair will be blonde and she will wear a mask, along with some piercings on her ears. The player can also change her appearance by altering the streaming assets folder.

If Easter Eggs are activated, the player will be able to give her different hairstyles by pressing H key. The player can give her eye-wear accessories using the P key. They can also give her random miscellaneous accessories using O key. The < and > keys decrease/increase her bust size. There are also several easter eggs modes that alter her appearance.

When performing the Light Music Club minigame, Ayano wears a black off the shoulder dress, black wrist warmers, a black ripped stocking on her left leg, and calf high black and white zip up boots.

When outside of school, Ayano wears extremely plain and simple clothing. YandereDev imagines that she just grabs the rightmost shirt from her shirt drawer and leftmost skirt from her skirt drawer without any concern as to if they match. She might observe what other girls are wearing and dress like them to blend in and attract less attention.[4]


Ayano Aishi is the protagonist of Yandere Simulator. She is known as "Yandere-chan" to players of the game, and has been given the cute nickname "Yan-chan" by her classmates.

Since early childhood, Ayano has suffered from an inexplicable, incurable condition. In short, this condition leaves her with a perpetual sense of being empty, hollow, and incomplete. As a result, she has never been able to experience satisfaction, fulfillment, or happiness, and has not been able to experience emotions in the same capacity as other people. As she grew older, she learned to pretend to be a normal person in order to avoid drawing negative attention from others, but was never able to feel any degree of empathy towards other human beings.

Ayano attends a post-highschool academy called "Akademi." On the first day of her second year at Akademi, Ayano came into physical contact with a young man named Taro Yamada. In that moment, she gained the ability to experience everything that had been missing from her life; she felt complete, she felt fulfilled, and she felt powerful emotions. Meeting Taro was like seeing color for the first time, hearing music for the first time, and feeling warmth for the first time. In his presence, she felt overwhelmed with euphoria...but, as soon as they were apart, the feelings of emptiness returned. After just one meeting, Ayano had become hopelessly addicted to Taro's presence, and came to rely on him in order to feel alive.

Then, Ayano saw something horrible...something that terrified her and infuriated her at the same time. It was a young woman who clearly had deep feelings for Taro. If Taro entered a relationship with this girl, then Ayano might lose him forever...

Without a moment's hesitation, Ayano knew exactly what had to be done. This girl - her rival - had to be eliminated as soon as possible, by any means necessary, no matter what the cost.

— Ayano's description from the official website.

Ayano suffers from a fictional type of insanity.[5] This condition doesn't allow her to experience normal, strong feelings. She had been this way since as far back as she could remember,[6] before meeting Taro Yamada for the first time. Ayano doesn't have the ability to feel emotions, empathy, or remorse. She doesn't feel guilt or shame for harming others.[7] However, she can feel pity at times.[8] She knows what the general people consider to be "wrong", but she just doesn't care.[9]

Ayano's behavior does not perfectly match the definition of either a sociopath or psychopath, but she is capable of actions that only a psychopath would consider taking--being usually bold and egotistical.[10] She doesn't see the point of fighting students non-lethally (besides the delinquents) because they will just report her to the teachers.[11] She is also capable of nonviolent elimination methods in order to cause less trouble for Senpai or to run less of a risk of getting caught while doing something violent.[12]

Ayano's "hobby" is trying to convince everyone around her that she is a normal girl with normal feelings. She buys manga, plays video games, and rides a bike to project the image of a regular school girl. However, she doesn't enjoy any of it.[13]

Ayano doesn't want to get or be remembered. She tries to avoid gathering any kind of attention to herself, as she deliberately avoids other people. Ayano would socialize just enough to not be considered a loner, but not too much to be well known by her classmates.[14]

Due to her condition, Ayano is shown to be rather extremely selfish and uncaring to others. She only cares about pursuing Senpai as she believes the one that made her complete is the only thing that matters to her, much like her mother. Her focus on getting Senpai's love is most likely powered by her fear of losing her chance to feel alive forever, like Ryoba felt when she was her age. Ayano is also shown to be extremely delusional due to her believing that she is more worthy of Senpai's love than the rivals because they could never love him as she can, when in reality, she isn't, as evidenced from when she saw Osana Najimi.

Due to being mentally unstable, Ayano is shown to be very sensitive and bad-tempered, especially when it comes to her Senpai. It is evidenced in SNAP mode that Ayano will enter in enraged state whenever things go wrong, even when it's something a normal person could come back from.

Overall, Ayano is a blank slate whose personality is determined by the player's actions and choices, but all players have the capacity to commit each of the possible actions in the game.[15] She isn't incredibly talkative by default and will only speak when necessary.[16]


Born on April 1st[17], Ayano was the daughter and the only child of Ryoba Aishi and Jokichi Yudasei. Ayano was born with the same condition as her mother, grandmother, and all of her female ancestors had. As revealed in an Intro and in a Yandere-chan's childhood video, Ryoba told Ayano at some point that she was exactly like her when she was a child, and that, one day, she'd meet someone special who will "complete" her, just like she did. However, she never told her what she did in the past, as she promised Jokichi to never do it.[18] Because Ryoba always knew about Ayano's condition, she didn't worry about her at all, but Jokichi desperately wanted to help their daughter, which included taking her to hospitals, doctors, and examinations. Ryoba tried to explain to Jokichi their daughter's condition, but he didn't want to listen to her words until Ayano began to pretend to be "normal".

As revealed in a childhood lesson video, Ryoba kept the promise that she gave to Jokichi, but she still found ways to "teach" Ayano how to get away with murder. At some point during Ayano's early childhood, when they both were making dinner together, Ryoba "accidentally" cut her finger with a knife. She asked Ayano to clean up the blood while she was bandaging herself, and after Ayano did so, Ryoba informed her that the blood was still there. She then took luminol from the shelf next to her and sprayed the place where the blood was. Afterwards, Ryoba turned off the lights and showed that the blood was still there using a blacklight. She then sprinkled the area with peroxide, and this time, the blacklight didn't show any blood where it was before. This way, Ryoba taught Ayano how to clean up blood after murder.

During Ayano's middle school years, Ryoba expressed that she would be happy if Ayano would go to the school that she and her husband attended — Akademi. She felt that she would meet her "someone special" there, just like she did. Ayano decided to fulfill her mother's wishes, with the hope she would finally feel satisfaction. After focusing on her learning intensely she was accepted to Akademi, but did not feel any of the satisfaction she wanted: instead, she focused on the idea she would never be normal like other people. The following year, both her parents took a ten-week vacation to America.

Some time afterwards, Ayano bumps into Senpai in the hallway and immediately experiences emotions and a sense of completion. She then finds out about his childhood friend, Osana Najimi, who has a crush on him. Ayano expresses intense jealousy and anger over this, as she feels Senpai is hers. After stalking them for a while, she receives texts from Info-chan, who reveals Osana's crush and that she plans on confessing this to him on Friday. The idea of killing Osana forms and the game begins shortly after.


Due to Ryoba's crimes in 1989 and her share of behavior as her mother, Ayano is instantly disliked by those who have a grudge against Ryoba such as Kocho Shuyona and Megami Saikou. They clearly have no respect for her and do not tolerate her presence in Akademi, despite Ayano having not killed anyone at the beginning of the game.

Taro Yamada

Main Article: Taro Yamada

Before meeting Taro, Ayano was just drifting through life without any purpose.[19] She only met Senpai a few days before the beginning of the game[20], having enhanced feelings in his presence for the first time in her life.[21] Ayano acts perverted and lovesick toward Senpai, wanting to go into the Boys' Shower Room to admire him.[22] and enjoys trying meals that she has seen Senpai eating because it makes her feel closer to him.[21] She also keeps Senpai Shrine in her bedroom. What Ayano feels isn't lust or a crush, but more like seeing color in a grey world.[23] In fact, it might not even be romantic, since Senpai just seems to give her new sensations.[24]

She appreciates anything that makes him happy.[25][26] Ayano would not object to anything that would make Senpai happy, as long as it isn't another girl. Because of that, Senpai could use her if he wanted. However, if he ever insulted Ayano, she would punish him and might even break him to fit her ideals.[27] She might mind-break him in an ending.[28]

If Ayano was in a relationship with Senpai, she would get rid of the shrine to "keep him".[29]

If Taro imprisoned her with the intentions of rehabilitating her, Ayano would "pretend" to be fixed for Senpai to release her. Once she has manipulated Senpai into releasing her, she will reverse the situation and make Senpai her prisoner, or take whatever course of action to become his girlfriend.[30]

If she ever accidentally hurt Senpai, Ayano would feel a mixture of depressed emotions. However, she is okay with traumatizing Senpai in order to eliminate a rival.[31] If Senpai ever committed suicide because of her, she would do the same.[32] If Senpai died in an accident or due to disease, Ayano would fall into a deep depression and in a coma-like state. She would refuse to eat and would eventually starve to death. If Senpai died due to murder, Ayano wouldn't rest until she was 100% sure she had killed Senpai's murderer in the most painful way possible. Then, she would gradually fall into a depression-coma.[33] If she knew who did already died, she also would feel a cross between deep hatred and total, hollow emptiness.[34] If Ayano and Senpai grew old and Senpai died first, Ayano would kill herself.[35]

Ayano will state a true and clear statement that "spells out" exactly how she feels about Taro in the "True Ending" cutscene. YandereDev envisions this to be the final dialogue before the credits roll.[36]


Main article: Aishi Family

Ayano is the only child of Ryoba Aishi and Jokichi Yudasei.[37] She is indifferent to both her parents[38], and she would not sacrifice Senpai if it was between him and her parents.[39].

The rest of her family is not very close, since as soon as a family member finds a lover, they do not usually spend time with others. Ayano may not have even met most of her relatives. No one is on bad terms, though.[40]

Ayano and Ryoba have impressive skills at crafting objects because the Aishi family is highly successful in the textiles industry, producing everything from rugs to garments with the highest quality around; the family passed down the skills of sewing and weaving fabric for generations, reaching Ayano[41].

Ryoba Aishi
Main article: Ryoba Aishi

Ayano believes that her mother is a kind, pure, warm, gentle, and innocent lady.[42] Her mother loves her dearly[43] because Ayano is the physical manifestation of love between herself and her husband.[40] Ryoba knows about her daughter's nonexistent emotions and heeds it no mind. She told her daughter that someone would complete her one day.[44][45] If she saw Ayano in a relationship, she would be happy to see that her daughter had found "love".[46]

Ryoba subtly taught Ayano how to avoid being caught in case she decides to commit murder. YandereDev has said that in the game's future skirt inventory, the skirt was made by Ryoba and was given to Ayano, who declined, seeing no use for it. However, after meeting Senpai, Ayano managed to find many ways to use the skirt and began wearing it on the first day the player gains control of her.[47]Ryoba also taught her daughter to have no one ratting her out by avoiding confidants, liabilities and associates.[48]

According to YandereDev, if Ayano was killed, her mother would have the same reaction "as any other parent who loses" their child. However, in the events of Ayano either getting expelled or arrested, Ryoba would be "disappointed" and think '"Tch! I taught her better than that!"'[49]

Jokichi Yudasei
Main article: Jokichi Yudasei

Jokichi loves Ayano despite having suspicions about her but doesn't know her true nature.[44] In her childhood, Ayano noticed that her father was constantly worried about her and started pretending to be normal[50], as she started to pity him. Afterwards, there was no longer a reason for her father to worry about her. However, Ayano suspects that her Jokichi had eventually realized she was faking her normality but was keeping it to himself.[51]

Despite her pity for him, Ayano actually didn't treat him normally. According to YandereDev, she treats Jokichi as a "pet" that her mother is keeping; a pet who curbs the effects of her genetic condition. If Ryoba made the decision to dispose of her husband, Ayano would think of it like the family dog being put down. Hypothetically, if her father attacked her mother, Ayano wouldn't hesitate to commit parricide on him as she would feel the same way as if the family dog had suddenly mauled a family member; it would be acceptable, and the dog would have to be put down. This implies that Ayano wouldn't also care about her father's death.[52] If Jokichi murdered Ryoba, Ayano would feel betrayed. She trusted her father to take care of the family, not destroy a crucial part of it. She would stop seeing Jokichi as her father, and would see him as "the person who killed her mother" immediately. She would probably avenge her mother's death by murdering her own father.[53]

If Ayano had prisoners in the basement, Jokichi would have 0 tolerance for it.[54]


Main Article: Info-chan

Ayano's only current ally is Info-chan.[55][56] They have a strictly professional client-provider relationship. Ayano works 100% solo, excluding her co-operation with Info-chan.[57] In both intros, it seems that one of them might see their reasons for doing what they're doing as justified, while the other person is just insane. Info-chan's attitude towards or beliefs about Ayano may be affected by the player's actions.[58]

Ayano will never stop worrying about Info-chan reporting her to the police. She has extreme wariness and caution around her, since Ayano's mother told her to never have a liability or a confidant. Ayano does appreciate Info-chan's information, but does not really want to work with her.[48]

It is possible for Ayano to use Info-chan for basic info on students and to identify rivals without ever giving her any panty shots, meaning that Info-chan may be simply used by her without anything in return, except maybe making Osana suffer. It is a huge spoiler to say what would happen if Ayano didn't take panty shots nor kill students, which would help Info-chan.[59] YandereDev wants it to influence some events near the end of the story.[60]


Main Article: Rivals

The rivals will never know that Ayano exists (aside from Megami Saikou) unless she befriends them. They will never know they have competition.[61] Ayano is fine with eliminating them as long as she gets her obsession, Senpai, in the end.

Ayano seems to delusionally believe that she is more worthy of Senpai's love than the rivals because they could never love him as she can, as evidenced from when she saw Osana Najimi, as a result of being influenced by her own mother.


Main Article: Students

Ayano seemingly doesn't care about fates of students and will get rid of them if they get in her way, due to her mentally unstable condition. According to YandereDev, Ayano's motivations for befriending students are purely manipulative. She most likely has never had any real friends.[62]

If she were to befriend students in order to appear "normal", Ayano would likely not make friends with popular girls in order to not be noticed by too many people, for if she becomes very popular, students may stalk her in future, complicating act of murdering without witnesses.[63] On the other hand, it would also be optimal for her to refrain from becoming an outcast, so she likely wouldn't make friends with delinquents or outcasts. She would make friends with "in-between": people who aren't popular, aren't bullied and aren't outcasts. In other words, she would become friends with normal, plain students, and/or wallflowers.[64] However, during actual gameplay, it's up to the player's choice.

It is not possible for students to develop crushes on her.[65] Hypothetically, if someone developed a crush on Ayano, she would not be affected. She would reject them while trying to "stay in character". On outside, she would act like a shy schoolgirl who cannot accept their feelings. On the inside, however, she would think of them as an insect who needs to be swatted.[66]

Kuu Dere and Midori Gurin

Main Articles: Kuu Dere, Midori Gurin

While Ayano isn't exactly friends with Midori and Kuu, they were acquainted in their childhood. Ayano met Midori during her kindergarten and elementary school years, while she met Kuu during high school.[67]

Kocho Shuyona

Main article: Kocho Shuyona

Due to Ryoba's actions publicly revealed by the Journalist at murder trial in 1989, Ayano is strongly despised by Kocho and is seen as a threat in instant for her share of nature as her mother, especially the fact she is the daughter of a real serial killer who caused the Akademi's damaged reputation, even in their first encounter. His hatred towards Ayano is due to his fear that she would turn out just like her mother.

When Ayano enters his office, Kocho will be startled by her sudden entrance, but will calm down. He is shown to be intolerant of her presence around the school due to him sounding reluctant with her. He also begrudgingly refuses Ayano's presence in his office due to seeing her as replica of her mother and will demand her to leave his office if Ayano stays for too long. As long she stays around Akademi, Kocho seems to expect her to repeat her mother's crimes in the future.

Kocho is shown to take pleasure of harming Ayano, evidenced when the player gets a game over by having him tase Ayano as a self-defense, rendering her unconscious. For unknown reason, he contacts Mr. Saikou that a deal is off. It is currently unknown what the deal was about.


  • Her name "Ayano" in Japanese is written as あやの in hiragana (アヤノ in katakana). In kanji, it is either 綾乃, with 綾 (aya) that means "figure", "design", "twill", or "pattern of diagonal stripes",[68] or 彩乃, with 彩 (aya), that means "color", both with 乃 (no), which is a possessive particle.[69] Her surname "Aishi" is a combination of kanji 愛 (Ai) that means "Love", and 死 (Shi) that means "Death".[70] "Aishi" is also an actual Japanese name, but rather than being ended with 死, is more often ended with 志 (Shi) that means "Purpose", "Will", "Determination", "Aspiration", or "Ambition";思 (Shi) that means "Think"; or 詩 (Shi) that means "Poetry" or "Poem".[71]
    • One of YandereDev's first ideas about Yandere-chan's name was that it could mean "Murderer", for which he suggested Satsu Jinsha or Jinsha Satsu.[72] However, he resigned from this idea, and decided that her name would include "yan" in it somewhere.[73] He leaned towards Ayano, because there were fewer Google searches for that name.[74]
  • Ayano is nicknamed "Yan-chan" by other students (by "yan" in "Ayano"), but teachers will refer to her by either her surname or full name.[74]
  • Her birthday is April 1st.[75]
  • Ayano has never sung a song outside of school anthems.[76]
  • Ayano has no preferred tastes regarding food, but if she was asked to name her "favorite" food, she would name Senpai's favorite food, because any food that brings Senpai happiness is the food she appreciates.[25]
    • Before she met Senpai, Ayano only ate to avoid an emaciated appearance. However, after she met him, she experienced a heightened sense of taste.[21]
    • On that note, Ayano's favorite color is the color that Senpai enjoys the most. However, her signature color is black.[26]
  • Ayano would most likely never become a club leader.[77]
  • Ayano would most likely never deface the Confession Tree, as she would love to confess to Senpai underneath it one day.[78]
  • Kirie Motoba from Himouto! Umaru-chan reminds YandereDev of her.[79]

Yandere-Chan in Project QT.

  • Ayano appeared as a guest character in several other games: Crush Crush, where she was later redesigned and renamed to Ayeka, in the mobile game Project QT, where she was later renamed to Patti, Go All Out!, an indie fighting platform game where she appears as a guest fighter, and she appears as a playable monster in Dark Deception: Monsters & Mortals before its removal from the Steam storefront on September 27th, 2023.[1]
  • YandereDev has imagined that there are very few circumstances where Ayano might be murdered, but chances are very slim.[81]
  • After meeting Senpai and finding something to protect, she may play Hitman as a "virtual training tool."[13]
  • YandereDev thinks that if she had a time machine, she'd go back to her first year and try romancing Senpai 'normally', fixing any mistakes she made.[82]
  • If Ayano had a pet and learned that Senpai was allergic to it, she would kill it immediately.[83]
  • There may be differences between Ayato Aishi's and Ayano's characterizations. Ayato would be characterized as sadistic and possessive. His life would be given meaning through his obsession with Senpai. Ayato would view eliminating his rivals as a game, with each rival being an enemy that must be eliminated.[84]
  • On June 1, 2017, her voice actress, Michaela Laws, was featured in a heavy metal song by XanduIsBored [85] called Resentment [86] based on Yandere Simulator; specifically about Ayano herself and how she'll kill anyone who she sees as a "threat" to Senpai.
  • Nobody has asked Ayano out.[14]
  • Ayano, Ayato, Oka and Budo are currently the only characters that have a pillow case product on the Official Merchandise site.
    • Additionally, Ayano and Oka plushies were officially released for a limited time but it is not possible to buy the plushies officially right now.

Something is... ...wrong... ...with me. For as long as I can remember, I've always felt...empty. Incomplete. Like a part of me is...missing. This hollow feeling has dominated my life. I've never been able to feel anything else. My world has always been cold...dark...silent. My mother was exactly like me when she was a child. But when she met my father, everything changed for her. He brought warmth and color and life into her world. He made her...complete. She told me that, one day, I'd meet someone special, just like she did. Someone who would cure me...fix me...save me. I've spent my entire life waiting for that day... ...dreaming of the moment when I'd meet the person who would complete me. It was the only thing for me to look forward to. It was my only reason to live. And then...one day... ...I found him. When I met him, something changed inside of me. My world was filled with colors and light. It was like I had opened my eyes for the first time. I felt warm. I felt complete. I felt...alive. He is my escape from the cold, grey, empty world I've been trapped in. He is the one I've been waiting for... The person I want to spent the rest of my life with. But... ...someone...is trying to take him from me. She wants him, but not in the same way that I want him. She could never appreciate him the way I do. She doesn't deserve him. He belongs to me. I have to stop her. Even if it means hurting her. Even if it means killing her. There is nothing I won't do for him. I won't let anyone come between us. I don't care what I have to do. I don't care who I have to hurt. I don't care whose blood I have to spill. I won't let anyone take him from me. Nothing else matters. No one else matters. He will be mine. He doesn't have a choice.

— Ayano's monologue in the current intro cutscene.

Do I know you?

Do you have a problem with that?

The myth that if you confess your love to someone underneath that tree on a Friday, they are guaranteed to accept your confession?

Why are you telling me this?

Who are you?

I have heard rumors about you. You blackmail girls and sell panty shots to boys. Nobody knows your real name.

You're disgusting.

— Ayano's cellphone conversation with Info-chan (Before June 1st, 2020 Build).

I can't feel anything.
I've never been able to feel emotions.
I pretend to be normal when I'm around other people, but on the inside, I feel nothing.
It's not as bad as it may sound.
I know that I'm broken, but I don't care.
This is normal for me.
But everything changed when I met him... ...my Senpai.
For the first time, I felt something.
A strong desire.
A longing.
A yearning.
A craving.
Now I finally understand what it means to be human.
To be alive.
I'm addicted to the way he makes me feel.
I don't care about anything else.
He is everything to me.
And now, someone is trying to take him from me.
He belongs to me alone.
She has taught me a new emotion...Rage.
I want to stop her.
I want to hurt her.
I want to kill her.
There is nothing I won't do for Senpai.
Senpai will be mine.

— Ayano's quotes from the former intro cutscene, that don't appear in the current intro.

They're all gone, Senpai.
I got rid of them...so the two of us could be alone together.
I want you all for myself, Senpai. I don't want anyone to come between us. So...I killed them all.
I'm serious, Senpai. In fact...let me show you just how serious I am.

— Ayano in the genocide ending.

Watch this video.
I haven't harmed her...
If you ever want to see her again, you must do as I say.
Free all of your clients from debt.
For every day that your clients remain in debt, I'll remove one of your daughter's fingers. If you want her back in one piece, you must act immediately.
Good decision.

— Ayano's text conversation with Musume Ronshaku's father.

I can't tell you.
You're welcome.
There is one thing I'd like to ask you for.
Please meet me at my house tomorrow, before school begins. I have something important to tell you.

— Ayano's text conversation with Kokona.

I manage.
Yes. It's about the boy from class 3-2. The boy you have a crush on.
...I...I have feelings..for him...I've never felt this way about anyone before...and I can't bear the thought of seeing him...with anyone else...I know that this is a selfish request...but...please...don't take him away from me. Let me try to win his heart.
Thank you!
Don't worry...I will!

— Ayano's conversation with Kokona at her house.

I need to return your cat...and, I need to have an important discussion with you. But, it's too late at night right now. Please meet me at my house before school tomorrow.

— Ayano's text conversation with Osana.

I manage.
The tea is ready.
I'll be right back.
Feel free to keep talking.
Here's your tea.
It's about the boy from class 3-2.
The boy...you have a crush on.
If that's true...
...then, you wouldn't mind if I confessed my love to him, would you?
Deep feelings...
I've never felt this way about anyone before...
...and I can't bear the thought of seeing him with anyone else.
I know that you love him...
...and I know that this is a selfish request...
...don't take him away from me.
Let me try to win his heart.
Thank you!
Don't worry...I will.

— Ayano's conversation with Osana at her house.

What is this, exactly? Are you threatening to expose me?

— Ayano been threatened by Info-chan on Sunday conversation (If Osana was eliminated in a lethal way).

Disappointed? Were you hoping to see something more violent?

— Ayano and Info-chan's conversation on Sunday (If Osana was eliminated in a non-lethal way).

Who is she?
Stop playing games. Get to the point.
Is that really what this is all about? You just want to see girls suffer?
He already belongs to me.
He just doesn't know it yet.

— Ayano being warned by Info-chan about her second rival.

I just got back from the bakery. I found a receipt for 2 dozen rats purchased from a local pet store.
Please come to my house tomorrow morning so I can hand over all of the receipts I found.

— Ayano's text conversation with Amai.

I live with my mom and dad, but they're on a trip overseas right now.
I guess so.
The tea is ready. I'll be right back. Feel free to keep talking.
Here's your tea.
Yes. I want to speak with you about someone from class 3-2. Someone that...you have a crush on.
I have feelings for him, too. Deep feelings. I've never felt this way about anyone before...and I can't bear the thoughts of seeing him with anyone else.
I know that this is a selfish request, but...please...don't take him away from me. Let me try to win his heart.
Thank you!
Don't worry...I will.

— Ayano's conversation with Amai at her house.

Don't even think of trying to blackmail me.

— Ayano replying to Info-chans text after eliminating Amai in a lethal way.

Is that what you wanted? To see her get hurt?

— Ayano replying to Info-chans text after eliminating Amai in a non-lethal way

Another girl already?!
I think it's about time you told me what's really going on here. Why are you stalking Senpai and encouraging me to harm any girl he speaks to? What's in it for you?
You said that you wanted Osana and Amai to suffer. I'm guessing the same is true for Kizana. Why?
I'm not worried about Kizana. If someone gets in my way, I'll do whatever it takes to stop them.
Make sure you keep that in mind.

— Ayano being warned by Info-Chan about [[Kizana Sunobu

|her third rival]].


Good show! You have insulted a lady, I ought to take off my belt and thrash you within an inch of your life, sir! Fiddlesticks! Balderdash! Old chap! Pip-Pip! Tea and crumpets! Oh bother...Spiffing! Ta-ta! I say! Jolly good! Wot wot? Shenanigans! Cheerio~! Tallyho! There's a good fellow! Scallywag!

— Phrases Ayano says while wearing the top hat and monocle Easter Egg.

Murders? What murders, officer? Oh, THOSE murders! Sorry, I don't know anything about any murders. I'm not a murderer or anything. I'm not well versed in murder at all! All I know is that I'm not capable of such things! Why would you ask me if I knew anything about those murders? I'm an innocent school girl! School girls can't be murderers, I just want to go to school and learn things, like every other school girl! Who has time for murdering people anyway? We have to study for exams! Murdering people would only waste precious time, especially for us school girls! Are you insinuating that girls like me can be murderers? How terrible!

— Ayano at the end of "Fingerprints, Gloves, Framing in Yandere Simulator".

This is the 42nd time you've asked me that question in the last 5 minutes. And the answer is still no.

— A hypothetical dialogue from a conversation between Ayano and Musume.[88]

Yandere no Sutoka

Can you dodge this, Senpai?

— When throwing her knife towards the player in Yandere no Sutoka.

I know where you're hiding...

— While searching for the player.

Maybe here?

— While searching for the player.

Don't play games with me, Senpai.

— While searching for the player.

Where are you hiding, Senpai?

— While searching for the player.

Yes, Senpai?

— When the player uses the voice recognition.

If I can't have you, no one can...

— When the player gets caught by Ayano.
