Not to be confused with Easter Egg modes, the two modes of Kuudere Simulator, or the three modes of Kuudere Simulator 2'.

Modes are the different versions of Yandere Simulator that affect gameplay. They will be fully implemented in the future.

There are currently four planned modes[1] and four modes implemented so far. Certain modes, excluding Story Mode, will be inaccessible in the demo.[2] YandereDev wants the other modes to take about one month to fully implement.[3]

  • Endless Mode

1980s Mode is a mode where the player plays as Ryoba Aishi, Ayano's mother, who was the yandere of 1989 from the Mysterious Tapes. It has a different story with different rivals and is not as elaborate as Story Mode. There are no phones, internet, Info-chan, or anything that didn't exist in the 1980s. This mode has stricter school rules and some backstory.[6]

Planned Modes

Endless Mode

Main Article: Endless Mode

Endless Mode is a mode where there are randomly generated NPCs.[9] Since this mode will never end, the objective is not to "acquire" Senpai but instead achieve the highest score.[10]

This mode may have been renamed to "Random Mode".[11]

Custom Mode

Main Article: Custom Mode

Custom Mode is a mode where the player can customize their rivals, students, and the school. There will not be more than 10 rivals.[12]


  • There might be a mode called "Endless Summer" where the player can continue playing forever, even though there are no longer any objectives. [13]
  • There might also be a mode called "Sandbox Mode" where the player has access to debug commands.[14]
  • 1980s Mode is meant to be the most difficult of them all. According to YandereDev,it came out easier than in his head.[15]
  • In Story Mode, the rivals will remain female, even if there is a female Senpai. In other modes, there might be male rivals instead.[16]
