Suitors are a type of NPC in Yandere Simulator. They are used in matchmaking to eliminate rivals peacefully. They have not been fully implemented yet. The only suitor who has been implemented is Riku Soma, Kokona Haruka's suitor.


Identifying the suitors should be challenging,[1] but their appearance will also be unique in some way.[2]


Main Article: Matchmaking

In the game, each rival will have a single crush[3] other than Senpai. The player will be able to eliminate a rival by pairing her up with her suitor.[4] If the suitor is murdered before Ayano can matchmake them, Ayano cannot pair them up and must use another method to keep the rival away from Senpai. The rival's suitor can be identified if he can be found stalking the rival while blushing.

There will always be a reason why the rival will develop a crush on a suitor. Sometimes the reason will be as simple as having similar interests.[5] Other times, there might be deeper causes.

In order to matchmake the suitor and the rival, Ayano must perform a task for both of them to befriend them. When the suitor is befriended, this unlocks a "Love" option in the interaction wheel. Selecting this option allows Ayano to name the suitor's crush. If she names his crush correctly, the suitor will then ask her for advice on how to win the rival's heart. This unlocks the matchmaking menu.

To make the suitor interact with the rival, Ayano needs to purchase a wireless headset and earpiece from the Drops menu for one panty shot (used to cost 5), to give advice to the suitor while he is interacting with the rival. This item is key to the Matchmaking process. Ayano then needs to use the Court option to tell the rival that someone wants to meet her at the east fountain. Ayano also must tell the suitor that the rival is waiting for him at the fountain and that she will guide him using the wireless headset. Once both the rival and the suitor are at the east fountain, Ayano has to hide behind a nearby tree and give the suitor advice while he talks to his crush.

If Ayano manages to figure out what features the rival is attracted to, she can advise the suitor to change his appearance based on what the rival is attracted to. This increases the multiplier boost during the matchmaking interaction.


Changing a suitor's appearance.

Ayano must 'train' the suitor to acquire non-physical traits that the rival finds attractive. If a rival is attracted to intelligence, then Ayano must study with the suitor, increasing his wisdom, which he can then use to impress the rival.


Increasing intelligence.

Ayano can also locate something on school grounds that would make a good gift, such as a rose, and give it to the suitor; this allows the suitor to give the gift to the rival during the matchmaking interaction. The gift must be given to the suitor before the interaction. Currently, a rose is the only gift Ayano can find in the game. You can pick one from a rose bush outside. Other ones may be added in the future.


NOTE: There are no pictures in this section yet, because no suitors' profiles have been revealed.

When they are implemented, some suitors may look like gender-bent versions of the rivals, but others may not.[6]

Kokona Haruka's Suitor

Main Article: Kokona Haruka

When the November 15th, 2015 Build came out, YandereDev stated that Kokona's second crush is one of the students who already attend Akademi High School.[7] He may not be a suitor in the final game, due to the fact that Kokona is only a test rival in the debug builds. This student turned out to be her male counterpart, Riku Soma. Riku is a member of the Drama Club, just like Kokona. The player can matchmake Kokona with him as of the September 22nd, 2016 Build.

  • If too many rivals are being eliminated through matchmaking, Senpai will assume he is not as appealing as other boys are[9] and that no girl will ever love him.[10]
  • If a rival is eliminated with matchmaking and then the suitor somehow is killed or disappears, they will not pursue Senpai.
  • The suitors will still be male if the player chooses a female Senpai, which means the ten rivals are bisexual.[11]
    • However, the option of a female senpai may not remain in the final game.
  • Sometimes a rival's suitor will be in the same club or class, but this will not always be the case.[12]
