The main menu. February 3rd, 2018.

Mission Mode is a mode in Yandere Simulator.

This mode features a storyline that is in a separate reality from the main 'Story Mode' in which Ayano Aishi plays as a 'killer for hire' employed by Info-chan, who specifically targets Akademi High School students.


This mode is accessed through the game's main menu.

In this mode, Ayano will be given a random student to kill. Depending on the difficulty level, there will be other requirements that she will have to fulfill, such as killing the student with a particular weapon.

In addition, sanity based attack animations are default and cannot be turned off, and all of Ayano's stats are also set to "1" by default. 

The player's objectives for the mission can be seen at any time when the game is paused. Once Ayano has completed all of her objectives, she can exit the school via a portal by the entrance.

When using Yandere Vision, Ayano 's target will be highlighted in red.

When this mode is active, the player is unable to use debug commands or easter eggs.

The default uniform for this mode is Uniform 5. The default soundtrack of the game has also changed to suit a more ominous and foreboding atmosphere.

The reputation meter is replaced with an awareness meter. It will increase when students see Ayano acting suspiciously (e.g. holding a weapon). If the awareness meter reaches 100, Ayano will fail the mission as she has blown her cover.

If enabled, security cameras and metal detectors will appear in school. Being seen by a camera while acting suspiciously, or brandishing a metal weapon while passing through a metal detector, will cause Ayano to fail the mission.

Difficulty Levels

When starting this mode, the player can change the mission's difficulty level. There are 10 levels, and each level will add one unique step that Ayano will have to complete to complete the mission. If Ayano does not complete all of the steps given, she will fail the mission.

The difficulty level will also affect the school's atmosphere, with higher difficulty levels resulting in a lower school atmosphere, making it harder for Ayano to go unnoticed.

Custom Missions

If the player goes to the 'Design Mission' option on the Mission Mode menu, they will be able to design their own missions. Players are able to choose factors such as the difficulty, objectives and their target.

In addition to this, players are also able to create a unique 19 digit code for their missions, meaning that the missions can be shared. To access it, the player must go to the 'Load' option on the main menu and type the code, known as a Mission ID, into the box.


Main Article: Nemesis

If enabled, Nemesis will appear on school grounds and will actively try to hunt and kill Ayano.
