Dismemberment is a way to dispose of NPCs in Yandere Simulator.
August 1st, 2014 Dismemberment
After killing a student with a sharp weapon, there was an option that would allow Ayano to cut her victim's body into pieces with the circular saw and carry them individually. Once the dismemberment option was selected, the game would fade to black before reloading again. Dismembering lowered Ayano's sanity. After dismembering the victim, she had to use a guitar case to hide the body parts, and later throw them into the incinerator. Afterward, she needed to change into a clean uniform in order for students to not see her covered in blood.
Dismemberment was the second way to dispose of a rival that was programmed into the game. However, YandereDev removed it because it caused glitches and required revision before it was reimplemented almost two years later.
February 15th, 2016 Dismemberment
After a student is killed through whatever means, Ayano has the option to dismember a corpse with the circular saw. Ayano, being seen in 3rd person view, will slice the corpse into 6 sections: head, torso, left leg, right leg, left arm, and right arm. Her sanity will decrease by 33% while doing so. Afterward, Ayano will be covered in blood, so she must clean up as to not be caught. She must carry all the limbs to the incinerator to dispose of them.
She can also use the trash can to dispose of body parts, one part at a time.
Ayano can use a roll of tarp to prevent blood from dismembering.
If Ayano wields an Energy Sword, she can instantly dismember students with the weapon.
The player can dismember students by pressing Left Control in Blade Hair Mode.
Students that witness a dismembered limb will walk towards it, and promptly run to a teacher. The teacher will call the police upon finding the limb. Any students that discover the limb while a teacher is guarding it will run to their classroom.

- A teacher or heroic student can apprehend Ayano while she is dismembering a body.
- Because Senpai has a pink aura surrounding him, it is not possible to dismember him normally. If the player uses Easter Eggs to move him from his aura, he can be dismembered. If Senpai is customized to be default, he will always have red eyes instead of the usual dark grey. If the player does this, Ayano will be unable to run afterwards.
- In the February 15th, 2016 Build, there was a bug where the player could tranquilize a student and then dismember them, but the game would spawn an infinite number of heads. As of the February 17th, 2016 Build, the player can no longer dismember a sleeping student.
