— The additional info in Info-chan's Student Profile.
Info-chan is a main character in Yandere Simulator who currently attends Akademi High School. She is Ayano Aishi's main source of help and information, performing several tasks such as introducing rivals to Ayano. She also provides Ayano with items and scheme walkthroughs in exchange for panty shots.
Info-chan was originally going to be the main antagonist of Story Mode and would have ended up being Ayano's final rival, but this idea was discontinued. 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 this intro, she gets Ayano to meet her in person in a classroom, where she states that she is president of the school's Newspaper Club and needs interesting things to happen at Akademi High School, 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.
In this intro, Info-chan contacts Ayano in a text message, telling her she's seen her stalking her Senpai and proposes her help. 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 Futaba model, but since she has her own unique hairstyle, the model was not used.
As of the October 8th, 2015 Build, Info-chan's appearance has changed. Her hair is now longer and spikier, with an 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.
As of the March 15th, 2016 Build, the player can see Info-chan in person by peeking through the curtain of the Info Club room. 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. She has the Evil persona, which would mean as an NPC, she would encourage crime.
In both intros, Info-chan is shown to be uncaring towards other people. She doesn't feel guilt or remorse when 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 probably learn anything if she really wanted. She also is very crafty and hard-working, gathering information through unknown ways 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 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. 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.
- 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 the club as well). She is now the one and only member of the 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 Tapes 10, she blackmailed Kocho Shuyona into giving her the room and all of the necessary equipment she needed. 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 has an anxiety attack.
Panty Shot Favors
- Main Article: Panty Shots
In the 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) will pay her for them; it's her currency. In the second intro, when Ayano describes her as a girl who "...blackmails girls and sells panty shots to boys," Info-chan says 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 girls' panties with her phone, she will have the option to send them to Info-chan. Panty shots can be used to acquire Panty Shot 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.
Note: While panty shots can be sent to Info-chan, most of the favors that Ayano can access with these panty shots are not yet implemented.
To access the favor menu, the player must enter the pause menu (accessed through the enter key) and select "Favors".
The only favor that the player can currently use is the "Provide Dark Secret" favor. This can be used to get juicy gossip and rumors about rivals.
Some favors cost more than others. Each panty shot gives one credit towards unlocking favors. They range from damaging a rival's reputation, improving Ayano's reputation, providing blackmail against another student, sending a student home, delaying the police, providing a spare uniform, providing blackmail against a rival, or even providing weapons to Ayano.
- Main Article: Schemes
As of the April 1st, 2016 Build, the player can give panty shots to Info-chan in order for certain elimination methods to be more easily accessible. The only ones available as of May 1st, 2016 are Expose Dirty Secret, Frame For Theft, Frame For Smoking, Frame For Panty Shots, and Frame For Cheating. Successfully completing all of these schemes will get the current rival expelled.
- Main Article: Drops
As of the April 1st, 2016 Build, the player can give panty shots to Info-chan 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. Currently, only a few items are available.
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, and any additional 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 their club-specific items. Info-chan will not recognize certain NPCs as they do not have a complete AI.
As of the September 18th, 2015 Build, 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 allies, though Ayano never has to kill anybody to boost her newspaper in the first opening, make Osana suffer in the second opening, or take panty shots in both intros. In fact, Ayano can indeed ignore Info-chan.
Ayano and Info-chan have a purely client/provider relationship  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 in the future. Apparently, it will be a plot twist.
- Main Article: Osana Najimi
Info-chan doesn't really like or dislike Osana Najimi in the first intro. 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.
Info-chan will wish for Osana to suffer in the final game.
- 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. 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 her rivals. Info-chan is said to still help her out by sometimes introducing a rival to her. 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 kanji that means both of these words is "Uragirimono" (裏切者).
- 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, one of the hairstyles will be Info-chan's. It will be red.
- 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 things 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 information 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'll be red.
- She only attended junior high, not high school.
- She started being Info-chan at the age of 14.

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.
