Info-chan is a main character in Yandere Simulator who is currently Ayano Aishi's main source of help and information, performing several tasks such as sharing the secrets of Ayano's rivals and is also a female student who attends Akademi.
Info-chan was originally going to be the main antagonist of 202X Mode and would have ended up being Ayano's final rival, but this idea was later scrapped for an unknown reason. According to YandereDev, explaining why this change was made would be a spoiler. As of now, her motivations and ultimate goals are currently unknown. They are stated to be a plot twist that will be important to the game's story in the future.
In the full game, Ayano will not be able to interact with her outside of text messages, unlike a regular student. It is possible that the player may catch glimpses of Info-chan in the future. According to YandereDev, Info-chan's real name is not important enough to be released, and her name does not have any role or importance to the game, so it will most likely stay a mystery.
- Main Article: Intros
In the first introduction, Info-chan has Ayano meet her in person in an empty classroom, where she states that she is president of the school's Newspaper Club. Info-chan explains to her that she needs more interesting things to happen at Akademi, like mass murders, so that she can write more attention-grabbing articles for the school's currently failing student newspaper. She encourages a somewhat reluctant Ayano to stir up some violent trouble and to take panty shots for Info-Chan.
In the second introduction, Info-chan contacts Ayano in a text message, telling her she's seen her stalking her Senpai and proposes her many different services. She doesn't reveal too much about herself, and she does not give a clear reason for helping Ayano out. She just tells Ayano that she would be happy if something bad happened to Osana Najimi, a girl who made an appearance in the first intro as Senpai's tsundere childhood friend and is the first rival of the game. Info-chan wants Ayano to make Osana suffer, though her reasons for this are not stated. In contrast to the first intro, where Ayano shows great reluctance to committing violent and sadistic deeds, Ayano's morals are twisted enough by her obsessive love for Senpai that it is easy for Info-chan to persuade her to eliminate her first rival.
In the first opening of the game, Info-chan wore the default female school uniform. She had short, dark red hair and eyes, and open top glasses with dark red frames. Her skin was slightly tanned. She had a mischievous expression on her face with half-closed eyes and a teeth-baring grin. The original plan was for Info-chan to have the Honoka Futuba model, but since she has her own unique hairstyle, the model was not used.
Info-chan's appearance has changed since then. Her hair is now longer and spikier with a small ahoge on top. She has a protruding strand of hair on the right side with parted bangs. If the player tries to look at her Student Profile, they are able to see her red glasses and hair, but everything else is a black silhouette. There are Easter Eggs and in-game customization options that can give Ayano Info-chan's glasses and hairstyle.
The player can see Info-chan in person by peeking through the curtain of the Info Club room, which is located on the third floor. She wears the default female school uniform, regardless of customization.
"'Info-chan' is the nickname given to an information broker who specializes in collecting and selling dark secrets.
Nobody knows her real name. Nobody knows what her face looks like. Nobody knows how she gathers her information. Nobody knows how she has gained such a dangerous amount of power and influence over such a short span of time. Some people don't even believe she really exists.
What people DO know is that, if you want a favor from her, all you need to do is text her a photograph of a girl's panties...and if she wants a favor from YOU, you'd better do exactly as she asks...or else."
In the current game, not much is known about Info-chan so far, except that she has a reputation for selling dark secrets and panty shots, and wants Osana to suffer. It can be inferred that she is a mischievous character, and given her willingness to incite murder, voyeurism, gossip, and bullying, and her apparent indifference to the effects of her actions on others, she likely has low moral standards, if any at all. She is most likely the Spiteful persona, which would mean as an NPC, she would encourage crime.
In both intros and the demo's cutscene about Amai, Info-chan is shown to be uncaring towards other people and their lives. She doesn't feel guilt or remorse whenever she's harming others for her own personal gain. She also tends to be very persistent in her goals. Info-chan is extremely intelligent and resourceful, being able to learn almost anything if she really wanted. She also is very crafty and hard-working, as she gathers information using unknown methods on her computer all day long.
In the first intro, Info-chan seems outwardly confident and very curious, as finding out secrets about other students is a serious hobby of hers, not just a job. She's very ambitious, as she wants her newspaper to become popular badly enough that she goes to the trouble of asking Ayano to stir up turmoil through murder. Info-chan seemed dedicated to her work and apparently poured her heart and soul into running the school newspaper. Her desire for Ayano to not kill off the entire school wasn't out of sympathy or humanity, but due to the fact that the newspaper would die if no one was alive to read it.
In the second intro, she specifically wants Osana to get hurt in some awful way, but the reason for it is currently unknown. She's willing to set Ayano, someone who is clearly unstable, against a rival who has a crush on Senpai.
Info-chan has a reputation of -999, which would be more than enough to make a normal NPC transfer schools or even commit suicide. However, since nobody knows who Info-chan really is, her true identity has a reputation of 0.
The topics towards Info-chan are Negative/Positive/Neutral towards are as follows:
- Everything else.
- Main Article: Clubs
Info-chan used to be a part of the Newspaper Club in the first intro, but YandereDev later discarded this idea, and he made the club a part of 1980's Mode. She is now the one and only member of the so-called Info Club and sits in a dark room working on her computer all day long. That club is exempt from school rules because, according to Headmaster's Tape #10, she blackmailed Kocho Shuyona into giving her access to the spare room and all of the necessary equipment she needed. It is unknown why she would want a room in the school as opposed to anywhere else. As a cover story for all the other staff, Kocho told them that she has severe agoraphobia so she can't be disturbed, lest she have an anxiety attack.
- Main Article: Info Points
Info Points are a form of currency the player can earn and use to obtain a wide variety of services from Info-chan. The most common way to get points is by taking panty shots for Info-chan to sell.
In the game's original intro, Info-chan claims that she only takes payment in the form of panty shots. She wants panty shots, as the boys (and some of the girls) of Akademi will pay her for them; it's her form of currency. In the second intro, when Ayano describes Info-chan as "an urban legend about a girl who hacks people and sells their dirty secrets to the highest bidder" she states that the rumors are true and tells Ayano that in exchange for her assistance in yandere activities, Ayano can always text Info-chan a panty shot.
If Ayano takes pictures of a girls' panties with her phone, she will have the option to send that picture to Info-chan. Panty shots can be used to acquire certain favors.
Currently, Info-chan will only accept one panty shot per student, and if Ayano sends her a repetitive panty shot, Info-chan will decline the photo. In the future, it's possible that Ayano will be able to take another panty shot of a girl if the girl in question is wearing different panties.
To access the favor menu, the player must enter the pause menu (accessed through the enter key) and select "Favors".
Info-chan's Favors include, but aren't limited to, raising the player's reputation, damaging the rival's reputation, and learning the rival's dark or embarrassing secrets. The prices of these favors vary, but can range from between 1 - 25 Info Points.
There are other ways to obtain Info Points, such as sending a picture of a student's face, placing bugs in set locations around the school, stealing a girl's phone so Info-chan can install spyware on it, and gathering blackmail from other students.
- Main Article: Schemes
The player can use Info Points in order to get step-by-step instructions on how to complete certain elimination methods.
- Main Article: Drops
The player can use Info Points in order to obtain specific items used for various things, such as eliminating rivals. Info-chan drops the items from the Info Club room window, and they can be found outside behind the statue of the headmaster.
If Ayano sends Info-chan a picture of another person in the school, Info-chan will give her information about them; what their name is, what club they're in, their persona, who their crush is, their strength, etc. The player can also exchange one Info Point for a student's information.
This can be useful for several different things - determining if they like Senpai, knowing how they'll react to murder, and making sure to not be seen by them while holding one of their club-specific items. Info-chan will recognize every student except for easter egg characters and Nemesis.
If Ayano tries to look for Info-chan's information, her phone will show static and Info-chan will tell her to not bother looking her up. Because of this, several bits of information is unknown about her.
- Main Article: Ayano Aishi
Info-chan and Ayano seem to be tentative allies. However, Ayano is never required to kill anybody to boost Info-chan’s newspaper in the first opening, make Osana suffer in the second opening, or take panty shots in both intros. In fact, Ayano can wholly ignore Info-chan.
Ayano and Info-chan have a purely client/provider relationship, not a friendship.  In the second intro, Info-chan sees Ayano as just a stalker who could help her get rid of Osana, while Ayano thinks that Info-chan is disgusting. 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. Either way, they'll still probably end up helping each other in the end. Info-chan's attitude towards or beliefs about Ayano may be affected by the player's actions. It is also 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 Ayano without anything in return, except maybe making Osana suffer.
It would be a spoiler to say what would happen if all rivals were eliminated non-lethally and the player never helped out Info-chan by taking panty shots. YandereDev wants it to influence some events near the end of the story. YandereDev has also not revealed if Ayano will officially meet Info-chan in real life. Apparently, it will be a plot twist.
- Main Article: Osana Najimi
In the first intro, Info-chan doesn't seem to like or dislike Osana Najimi. Info-chan just wanted more publicity for her newspaper, which just happened to involve Ayano getting rid of Osana Najimi. In the second intro, Info-chan specifically has something against Osana. It's not stated why, but Info-chan wishes for Osana to suffer.
Main Article: Megami Saikou
Info-Chan has met Megami or has seen her once. There may be a backstory of the two. Like Osana, Info-Chan has something against Megami and wants her to suffer the most.
- Main Article: Senpai
Info-chan does not care about Senpai's love life. She does know what's up with it, however; she knows who has a crush on him and rivals Ayano for his affection.
She was originally planned to be the final rival and would have just used Ayano to get rid of her other rivals so she'd be that much closer to having him all for herself, but this idea was discontinued.
- Main Article: Midori Gurin
Info-chan dislikes Midori. She cannot tolerate the inquisitive girl for more than a few seconds.
- Main Article: Students
The alias "Info-chan" is extremely notorious around the school, and the whole school knows what Info-chan does, so her reputation is set at -999. Info-chan's true identity, however, has a neutral reputation, because no one knows who she really is.
Info-chan doesn't seem to care for the students' well-being. For both intros, panty shots, blackmail, and other invasions of privacy mean nothing to her. Info-chan does not seem to care if Ayano kills any of her rivals. Info-chan is said to still help her out by sometimes introducing a rival to her by sending a picture of them. Sending pictures of corpses to Info-chan also doesn't faze her in the slightest.
Info-chan has criminal contacts but her exact relationship with them is unknown.
- Formerly, Info-chan was called Sidekick-chan, or Newspaper-chan.
- Her name was planned to be a double entendre meaning both “informant” and “traitor”. The only Japanese words that means both of these words are "Mikkokusha" (密告者) meaning "informer/informant” and "betrayer", and "Uragirimono" (裏切者) meaning "backstabber/traitor" and "informer".
- YandereDev also considered that her name could be “Joho Teikyosha” (情報提供者) or “Teikyo Shajoho” (提供者情報), which both means “informant”.
- However, YandereDev confirmed that he has a name for Info-chan, and it's still a double entendre, but much more clever than the ones that have appeared in the past.
- YandereDev loves programming Info-chan and what will be in store for her.
- Info-chan will sometimes introduce a rival in a conversation. 
- She may keep a personal diary.
- When pressing the H button to change Ayano's hairstyle, one of them will be Info-chan's.
- When YandereDev previously stated that Info-chan would not be seen at school, he considered her appearing in places that Ayano couldn't access in the future like G-Man from the Half-Life series.
- Info-chan has many criminal contacts and many ways to obtain illegal things, but guns are the only thing she can't obtain.
- As of January 14th, 2016, YandereDev's current plan does not include a rival that Info-chan will not help kill or torture.
- Info-chan will most likely be the only character who is only known by aliases, keeping their true identity a secret.
- Info-chan is more of a 'gameplay mechanic' rather than a character, so murdering her would be like removing the run button in a game. Kidnapping Info-chan will not be an option either.
- After the November 16th, 2016 Build, Info-chan no longer appeared in the Student Info menu, however, she was later re-added in the November 11th, 2017 Build.
- She is far-sighted.
- Info-chan's parents have no idea what she's doing.
- YandereDev believes that Info-chan once tried to hack Saikou Corp but didn't make any progress.
- She would pay a lot of money for "dirt" on Shiromi Torayoshi.
- Despite this, she knows the Student Council members' secrets.
- Saikou knows she is more than a hacker but does not have plans to go further with her.
- She blackmailed the Headmaster and asked for a room.
- She is likely asexual.
- She possibly has agents in other schools.
- The player may possibly see one of her parents.
- She would know if the Yakuza was active locally as she knows a lot about local organized crime.
- If she had to kill someone, she would probably get someone else to do it.
- Info-chan's mother possibly was also ”Info-chan” in her teenage years, but YandereDev said it's hard to answer that, without spoilers.
- She thinks it's pointless to care about colors, but if she had to pick one, it would be red.
- She only attended junior high, not high school.
- She started being Info-chan at the age of 14.
- In the October 15th 2017 build, a mysterious character could appear in the drama club. If you took a picture of her face, it would say that they were Info-chan. If you killed the character using an easter egg (like Cirno mode), the police will discover the corpse of Info-chan.
- Her favorite food is probably something that is quick to prepare, like instant ramen.
- If Info-chan ever did find herself becoming attracted to another person, it would probably be because that person can accomplish things she can't.
- In one of her favors, you'll be able to fire a student council member only in Mission mode, to purchase it, you need 25 Info Points (Panty Shots)
- Info-chan breaks the fourth wall, because she is able to identify the plushie dolls in the Sewing Room.

— Original cutscene.
I saw you stalking an upperclassman today.
No. I wanted to give you some information about the girl he was with.
Her name is Osana Najimi.
She has a crush on him.
She believes in the myth about the cherry tree behind the school.
She's planning to confess to him next Friday.
I would be happy if something bad happened to Osana-chan.
I think you might be the right person that gives her what she deserves.
I'm the person nicknamed "Info-chan" at school.
The rumors are true.
If you ever need a favor, text me a panty shot and I'll give you whatever support I can.
If you want to know personal information about anyone at our school, just send me a photograph of their face and I'll tell you everything I know about them.
You're a stalker.
If you want my help, text me. If you don't care, ignore me.
You have one week until your precious Senpai belongs to Osana-chan. I hope you make her suffer.
— The second intro.
I saw you stalking an upperclassman today.
There's no need to play dumb with me. I'm trying to help you. Want some information about the girl he was with?
Her name is Osana Najimi. She has a crush on him.
She's planning to confess to him next Friday...underneath the cherry tree behind the school.
There's a myth that if you confess your love someone underneath that tree, the person you confess to can't refuse.
I would be happy if something bad happened to Osana-chan. I think you might be the right person to give her what she deserves.
Have you ever heard of "Info-chan"?
That just the tip of the iceberg. I sell a lot more than just blackmail.
I've installed an app on your phone. Take a look.
That's not something you need to be concerned with.
If you do a few small favors for me, I can offer a wide variety of services that should help you eliminate Osana-chan. Everything you need to know is in that app.
If you're not interested in my services. I won't take it personally. Feel free to ignore me.
But DON'T ignore Osana-chan. You have one week until she confesses to your precious Senpai.
Make her suffer.

— Info-chan congratulates Ayano for eliminating Osana in a non-lethal way.
|“||But, that's not why I'm contacting you today. I've learned something that I think you'd like to be aware of.
Take a look at this.
Her name is Amai Odayaka. She's the leader of the Cooking Club at Akademi - and she's been getting quite cozy with your senpai lately.
She's fallen for him...hard. She's quite enamored with the cherry tree myth, so I'm pretty sure she'll be confessing to him this Friday.
Rotten luck, huh? Right after saving Senpai from Osana, another girl shows up to steal him from you...
No games; it's simple. I want to see Amai suffer, and I think you're the best person for the job. That's all.
It's a bit more complex than that...but let's keep things simple for now.
Remember - you have until Friday to deal with your new rival.
Eliminate her, or Senpai will never belong to you.
— Info-chan warns Ayano about Amai Odayaka (the second Rival).
