The delinquents all have styled blond hair and scars on their faces. They wear the default male uniform but with the jacket open, revealing casual t-shirts underneath. They stand to the left just outside of the incinerator area.
Between the April 15th, 2017 and April 26, 2018 builds, if the Space Bar was rapidly pressed ten times in front of them, they wore Team Skull Grunt bandannas and performed the Team Skull Grunt dance animation.
The delinquents hang around to the left of the incinerator area outside of class time around a radio. If Ayano walks near them, they will turn their heads to follow her movement and periodically call out at her. If a delinquent sees her carrying the cello case, their dialogue will change to mocking comments related to it.
If Ayano attempts to talk to them they will respond rudely, and will not be affected by seduction.
As of the August 15, 2019 build, Ayano can now join the delinquents. In order to join, her reputation must be -33 or lower, her hair must be dyed blonde, she must currently be using the Tough Persona, and she must have completed the tasks for each delinquent. If all of these requirements are met, Ayano can speak to Umeji about joining the delinquents.
If Ayano joins the delinquents, her reputation will be capped at -33. She will also gain the ability to "Intimidate" students, which accesses the "Favors" menu without befriending a student but incurs a reputation penalty.
All delinquents have the Violent persona. If Ayano walks too close to a delinquent with a weapon, they will ready their fighting stance, and if she comes any closer a combat minigame will begin. The player will have to press the three buttons that come up in succession once the game has begun, until either the delinquent or Ayano is too injured to fight. If the delinquents see Ayano murder someone, or she is trying to dispose of a corpse, they will continue fighting her until she is knocked out, or until she kills them. If Ayano bumps into a delinquent too many times, they will assume she wants to fight and take up a fighting stance.
If Ayano defeats a delinquent in a fight, he will drop his weapon and leave to sit near the bench near the incinerator.
If Ayano fights a delinquent near a member of the Student Council, she will run up towards them and break up the fight.
As of the August 15, 2019 build, a delinquent for whom Ayano has completed a task will no longer be aggressive towards her or start a fight with her.
At 7:20 AM, the group enters school grounds. They walk to their lockers at 7:30 AM and change from their outdoor shoes into their indoor shoes. At 7:40 AM, they walk to the incinerator.
At 1:00 PM, they walk back to the incinerator.
Between 3:30 PM and 4:00 PM, they go to the incinerator.
Joining the Gang
To join the gang, Ayano must follow a list of mandatory requirements:
- Have a bad reputation level, anywhere around the darkest square of the reputation HUD, between -33% and -99%.
- Dye your hair blonde, purchasing the dye at "Nozama!" site
- Change your persona to "Tough", through any of the mirrors around school.
- Complete all of the delinquents' tasks
Once the list is complete, Ayano must talk with Umeji Kizuguchi to join the delinquents. Once in the gang, Ayano will wear a mask around her mouth. You can press Left Alt to change the design.
Benefits and Downsides
The benefit of joining the delinquents is making students Follow, Distract and Go Away through Intimidation. Although, you will suffer through reputation. When you're part of the delinquents, your reputation will lock at -33% unless you leave the gang and your reputation suffers more points every time you're caught doing suspicious activity by normal students.
Club Activity and club rules are still the same. The delinquents hangout around town, thinking of ways to defy authority, if Ayano fails to hangout with them for a whole week, Ayano will be evicted from the gang.
Originally, all the delinquents except for Osoro were being bullied to the point of considering suicide. They joined Osoro after seeing her singlehandedly take on multiple delinquents from another school, who sought to humiliate her. They idolized Osoro for this feat and began to imitate her after realizing that a fearsome reputation kept bullies away.
They eventually dyed their hair blond to match Osoro, carried blunt weapons, and began coming to class late. Other students soon named them 'delinquents'.
Kocho Shuyona wants to expel them all, but Genka Kunahito requested to reform them and has been given ten weeks to do so. If she fails, they will all be expelled, and Genka will be dismissed from the school.
