Drive To Murder is an elimination method in Yandere Simulator.
The player will be able to eliminate individual rivals by learning about their dark secret and exploiting it. As it is unconfirmed which rivals this method will work on, individual processes are unknown.
As of April 15th, 2021 Build, The player can achieve this by driving students to kill Osana without kidnapping. Currently, the only way to do this is to lower a Fragile student's reputation until they are bullied, take a picture of Osana talking to a bully, and leave them a note to meet to talk about bullying. When Ayano meets them, she will show them the photo, telling them Osana is responsible for the bullying, and they will kill her.
For the test rival, Kokona, a video was released to propose the idea of the elimination.The process involved befriending both Kokona and Musume. After listening to Kokona's phone call, Ayano would then ask Kokona to meet her on the rooftop to talk about compensated dating (enjo-kosai).
In the conversation with her, Kokona admits that her father is in debt to loan sharks, and she needs to participate in compensated dating to help her father out of his debt to Ronshaku Loans, owned by Musume's father. Ayano then reveals to Kokona that Musume is spoiled, getting anything that she wants from Kokona's father's money, and using it on show-off items such as expensive jewelry, watches; on top of that, Musume isn't grateful for her luxurious life at all.
Afterwards, Ayano kidnaps Musume, and convinces Kokona to come to an abandoned building, where Musume is tied up and blindfolded. Ayano tells Kokona that if Musume is beaten up, it will send a message to Ronshaku Loans, forcing the company to release its clients from debt. However, it is not Ayano's words that strike Kokona's desire to kill, but Musume's verbal abuse upon recognizing Kokona's voice. She snaps, and she hits Musume to death with a bat.
Kokona is arrested after the act due to Ayano having left the location and called the police while it was happening. The police arrive to see the murder scene and Kokona with the murder weapon. She is then arrested. Kokona would be unable to convince the police that Ayano made her accidentally commit murder.
Amai is the only rival to have been illustrated as a murderer in a drawing by Kjech. How it will be executed is currently unknown.
