All personas as of the October 10th, 2021 Build

Personas dictate how an NPC will react to events/happenings, such as murder and to being taken a picture of outside of the Photography Club. In the future, depending on budget and/or volunteers, personality will also determine voices, animations, etc.[1]

There are seventeen personas in Yandere Simulator: Loner, Heroic, Teacher's Pet, Spiteful, Coward, Social Butterfly, Violent, Strict, Friendly but Strict, Lovestruck, Dangerous, Phone Addict, Fragile, Stalker, Sleuth, Protective, and Snitch (which is exclusive to 1980's Mode). [2]

Loners, Teacher's Pets, and Social Butterflies will act hostile towards Ayano Aishi after realizing she is connected to murder. They will spread rumors about her true nature and will damage her reputation by 10 points each school day unless they are killed. Heroes and Delinquents will also be hostile towards her upon realizing she is connected to murder, but they will exhibit a more immediate response, persistently attempting to restrain or beat her into a coma unless killed. The Coward persona will not harm Ayano's reputation. The Phone Addict persona will take a picture of her committing murder and text it to the police. The Spiteful persona will not harm Ayano's reputation if they hate the person she kills.


Main Article: Coward

Otohiko Meichi, a Coward.

Cowardly students will become terrified of Ayano and will start begging her to spare their lives in exchange for their silence. They also will cover their face if Ayano attempts to take a picture of them.


Main Article: Fragile

Horuda Puresu, a Fragile student.

Fragile students will become terrified of Ayano and will start begging her to spare their lives in exchange for their silence. Fragile students will cover their face if Ayano attempts to take a picture of them. Fragile students can be used to eliminate a student if Ayano frames the latter for spreading gossip of the victim. This is done by asking the student you want to eliminate to distract a Bully, taking a picture of their conversation, lowering the Fragile student's reputation, putting a note in their locker, and showing them the photo. So far, Horuda Puresu is currently the only student in the game to have the Fragile persona.


Main Article: Heroic

Himari Fujita, a Heroic student.

If a Heroic character spots Ayano murdering a student, they run towards her and trigger a struggle mini-game when they catch her. The player must complete the mini-game successfully to defeat and kill them. Each NPC has different levels of self-defense, which determines the difficulty of the mini-game. Heroes will give Ayano a suspicious look if she tries to take a picture of them. Any student can adopt this persona if they witness the murder of someone they love. (A close friend, a family member, a boyfriend/girlfriend, etc.) This persona was previously named "Hero Complex" in old builds.


Main Article: Loner

Kyuji Konagawa, a Loner.

Loners will run out of school grounds to call the police if they witness a murder. They will sit apart from other students, making it easier to kill them. Most Loners will cover their face if Ayano attempts to take a picture of them, but Kyuji Konegawa and Toga Tabara will give her a suspicious look.


Main Article: Lovestruck

Osana Najimi, a Lovestruck student.

This persona is exclusive to rivals. Nearly all rivals will have this persona,[3] though Muja Kina, Osoro Shidesu, Oka Ruto, and Mida Rana may be exceptions to this rule. If a rival with this persona sees Ayano commit murder, they will run to Senpai and tell him Ayano was responsible, which will cause an instant Game Over.[4] If a rival is eliminated peacefully, they will not have this persona anymore. [5] In early builds, This persona was known as "Tsundere" which then became "Clingy/Damsel" before it was known as "Lovestruck".


Main Article: Protective

Main Article: Sleuth

Fureddo Jonzu, a Sleuth.

Every student in the Photography Club and Newspaper Club has this persona. If School Atmosphere is low, they will continuously search for the criminal to snap a picture of them. If they take an incriminating picture of the player, they will send it to the police, and this will result in an instant game over. If School Atmosphere is high and they witness Ayano murder somebody, they will react with the Social Butterfly persona, running to a highly populated area and calling the police, with the exception being Fureddo Jonzu, who will react with the Heroic persona instead and attempt to apprehend her.

Social Butterfly

Main Article: Social Butterfly

Sakura Hagiwara, a Social Butterfly.

When witnessing a murder, Social Butterflies will run to the nearest crowded area and call the police. It is harder to murder around students with this persona because of the number of students gathered there, who can witness Ayano's actions. If a Social Butterfly sees Ayano after witnessing murder, they will scream and attract attention, then crouch on the ground holding their head.

They will happily pose if Ayano takes a picture of them. They will hide their face if they've witnessed her commit murder.

Phone Addict

Main Article: Phone Addict

Kashiko Murasaki, a Phone Addict.

Students who regularly have their phones out have this persona. If they witness a murder or see a corpse, they will snap a photo and text it to the police, either leading to an instant Game Over if Ayano is in the picture or triggering the police timer if she is not. Excluding Cowards, Heroics, Student Council members, the delinquents, and Fureddo Jonzu (above 80% school atmosphere), students without this persona will behave as though they have this persona if they have their phone out when discovering a corpse or witnessing murder; however, they will take longer to text the police. Every student of the Gaming Club, excluding Gema Taku, along with the Bullies have this persona. Additionally, all members of the Photography Club will use this persona if the school atmosphere is below 80%.


Main Article: Spiteful

Borupen Saishiki, a Spiteful student.

When witnessing the murder of a student with a low reputation or a student who bullies them, Spiteful students will approve of Ayano’s kill and promise not to tell anyone.

Spiteful students will give Ayano an annoyed look and cover their face if she attempts to take a picture of them. So far, only Borupen Saishiki has this persona. In old builds, this was known as "Sadistic" which then became "Evil" before it was known as "Spiteful".


Main Article: Strict

If a teacher sees a corpse or a bloodstain, they will call the police and guard the evidence until the police arrive. Teachers will give the player a suspicious look if she tries to take a picture of them. If Ayano kills a student in front of a teacher, they will run to Ayano and restrain her.

If a Teacher's Pet reports a murder and then Ayano moves the body far away from the crime scene, even if no other evidence has been cleaned up, the teacher will conclude that the student was pulling a prank on her and will not call the police.
