This page is for the male Senpai. For his female counterpart, please see Taeko Yamada.

Taro Yamada (commonly known as Senpai) is the love interest of Ayano Aishi and one the students who currently attend Akademi. He's one of the main characters of Yandere Simulator.

Appearance (Default)

Taro's default appearance has light skin, charcoal grey eyes, and short, dark hair. Taro wears the default school uniform, with gold buttons and black cloth, unless the player changes the outfits (he will then wear that specific dress codes' generic male uniform). If possible, YandereDev would want him to be slightly taller.[4] This is his default look as he is meant to look like a generic male anime protagonist.[5]

Upon starting the game, the player can customize his skin tone, hairstyle, hair color, eye color, eyewear, and facial hair, but if no changes are made or the process is skipped, Taro will appear with his default look. The player might be able to choose his gender in the final version of the game.


The Japanese word 'senpai' refers to someone who has seniority over someone else. For example, if you are a first-year student, all second-year and third-year students are your 'senpai'. If you start working at a new job, any co-worker who has been employed at the workplace longer than you is your 'senpai'.
In Yandere Simulator, the title of "Senpai" is given to the young man (or young woman) that the protagonist is infatuated with. The player is given the option of choosing Senpai's gender at the beginning of the game; they might be 'Senpai-kun', or they might be 'Senpai-chan'. If Senpai is a male, his name is Taro Yamada, and if she is a female, her name is Taeko Yamada.
Over the course of the school year, ten different girls will fall in love with Senpai. There is a myth at school that if a girl confesses her love to a boy under the cherry tree behind the school on a Friday, the two of them will love each other forever. Every girl who falls in love with Senpai plans to confess at 6:00 PM on Friday. If there is anyone who wants to keep Senpai all to herself, she has until 6:00 PM on Friday to eliminate the competition.

— Description on Official Website.

An average student.
Average grades, average looks, average life...
I'm not sure what you see in him.

— Description from Info-chan.

The first target you ever assassinated.
Good thing you were wearing gloves at the time...
Why? Oh, you know...fingerprints and whatnot...

— Description from Info-chan in Mission Mode.

Taro is meant to be plain and average.[6] Info-chan cannot dig up any dark secrets about Taro. He appears to have none at all.[7]

Taro is a loner who enjoys nature more than the company of people.[8] Though an introvert, he doesn't seem to be shy. He is normally gentle and considerate, but would feel enraged upon witnessing a masked killer, and unmask them without regard for his own safety, which may lead to Game Over.

Taro is not popular in the beginning, although girls will fall in love with him over the course of the game.[9] Some popular people might even notice him.[10] Taro seems oblivious to Osana's affections, since whenever she says something that could be considered flirting, he either doesn't hear it or doesn't understand what she means.

His personality will be shaped and molded by the way that people around him are disappearing; however, this feature is still under development. Depending on Ayano's actions, Taro might develop PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder), a personality complex, a nervous disorder, or social anxieties.[11] In the future, Taro will have a sanity meter. His sanity will drop if rivals keep dying. His sanity will drop more if Osana or Hanako Yamada dies. If Taro thinks Ayano is responsible for Osana, Hanako, or any other rival's death, he may become aggressive towards her and possibly reject her. His sanity could be increased over time (provided that there were no murders at school), or by giving him gifts (which can gradually make Taro obsessed with his "admirer"). Taro's current sanity will affect his daily routine and personality.

  • If too many rivals died shortly after they talk to him, he will wonder if he is cursed.[12]
  • If he has to reject many rivals because he can't get along with any girl he meets (due to the player sabotaging them), then he will worry that he will never find a partner.[13]
  • If too many rivals are eliminated via matchmaking suitors, he will think that he is not as appealing as other boys.
  • If rivals mysteriously stop coming to school but he does not know their fate, he will assume they are all delinquents who skip school.
  • If rivals are all framed (for murder, leading to life sentence), he will wonder if all women are murderers.
  • If rivals frequently commit suicide, then he will think that all women are on the brink of suicide.
  • If rivals are befriended and promise to stay away from him, he will worry that no one will ever interested on him on spending time with him.


Main article: Events

During the first week, Taro starts the day by talking to Osana first. Around 7:05 AM, he walks to his locker at 7:10 AM and changes from his outdoor shoes to his indoor shoes. At 7:15 AM, he walks to the fountain and sits on its edge, reading a book.

On Tuesday, when Osana will borrow his book, he'll simply walk around the school, enjoying the nature.

At 8:00 AM, he walks into Classroom 3-2 and sits at his desk. He starts his morning classes at 8:30 AM, and leaves to go to the rooftop to eat his bento at 1:00 PM with Osana Najimi.

He then walks to class again at 1:30 PM and finishes his afternoon classes at 3:30 PM. During cleaning time, he can be seen cleaning the fountain in the Plaza. At 4:00 PM, after cleaning time, he will continue reading his book until 5:15 PM. At 5:15 PM he will have another conversation with Osana Najimi, and they will go home together.

No matter what time the player chooses to leave school, Ayano Aishi always watches him go home until he arrives at his house safely.

His routine may be changed by Ayano's actions, such as sabotage.


Staying near Taro will cause Ayano's heart to beat loudly and the screen to turn pink. She will drop anything she's currently holding, keeping her hands to her chest. She cannot do anything besides walk slowly when she is near him. Entering this zone will help Ayano recover lost sanity. However, the longer she remains in his aura, the weirder she acts in front of him, going from shyness to watching him creepily. If Ayano stands in Taro's line of sight for too long or aiming camera to him, he will get slightly freaked out and a bit concerned. If this happens five times in one day, he will express that she is causing him to feel afraid, causing Ayano to become heartbroken and trigger a Game Over. If Ayano is in the Occult Club or plays the "Stealth" game in the computer lab, she can then stay in Taro's aura for longer without being noticed. Taro will not recognize her when wearing a mask.

Gameplay-wise, Taro is more similar to a "moving obstacle" rather than a regular interactive student, as he cannot be interacted with normally. If Ayano commits murder in his field of view, it will cause an instant "heartbroken" Game Over. If he sees Ayano performing suspicious actions such as holding a weapon, dragging a corpse, having low sanity, being covered in blood, killing a person or taking a panty shot, it will trigger an immediate Game Over as well. If Ayano commits murder in his field of view while wearing a mask, he will disregard his safety and rip Ayano's mask off her face and cause an instant game over (despite usually ignoring her in other cases). Taro cannot be killed like a normal student due to his aura outside of SNAP mode and certain Easter Eggs.

Taro is a Loner. When he sees a corpse, bloodstains, suspicious weapons or limbs, he will run out of the school grounds and call the police.

He doesn't appear in Mission Mode, as he became Ayano's first victim in the mission mode storyline.


Besides reading and listening to classical music, Taro's hobbies include calligraphy, bonsai, and origami.[14] Ayano can buy some of those things in Buraza Town.

Ayano Aishi

Main Article: Ayano Aishi

Ayano deeply obsesses over Taro due to him giving her emotions with his presence. He has been unaware by the fact that Ayano had been stalking him and knows where he lives due to her following him home after school. In out of selfishness because he is the only her reason to live, Ayano would refuse to let any girl to be around him, including his childhood friend and his sister, no matter what cost even if it means harm and killing.

He remembers Ayano due to accidentally bumping into her.[15]

If Taro rejects Ayano, she would snap and mercilessly kill him as she thinks he only belonged to her because the rejection will ultimately destroy Ayano's reason to live.

If Taro learns Ayano killed Osana, Hanako, or any other rival, their relationship will appear hostile. He may grow violent and aggressive towards Ayano and harshly hate her as he would reject her confession. Taro may also strongly develop a deep hatred towards Ayano and would kill her to avenge his deceased loved ones. At that point, Taro would refuse to do anything with Ayano for hurting his loved ones.


Main Article: Rivals

In the full game, Taro will be on good terms with all the rivals so he won't suspect them of any crimes, even if he sees them covered in blood. However, he cannot stop the rivals from being arrested if they are framed.[16]

Osana Najimi
Main Article: Osana Najimi

Osana Najimi was his childhood friend; they have known each other for a decade.[17] He and Osana attended the same middle school.[18] When she, Taro, and his little sister, Hanako, were all younger, they used to hang out together.[19] The two continue to be very close, meeting over together in the morning every day.

Her death, like that of Hanako, would cause Taro's sanity to drop significantly. If Osana dies and her corpse is discovered, Taro will stay home from school for one day to mourn her death. Regardless of how she's eliminated, he will feel sad or guilty about the situation.

If Taro knew who killed Osana, he would want to see that person imprisoned immediately.[20]

Amai Odayaka
Main Article: Amai Odayaka

Amai will serve as a positive influence in Taro's life after Osana is eliminated, as she comforts him after listening to his distress.

Kizana Sunobu
Main Article: Kizana Sunobu

Taro considers Kizana a bit bossy but is impressed by her passion for acting and is flattered by what she thinks of him.[21]

Mida Rana
Main Article: Mida Rana

Taro and Mida's relationship would be very complicated and/or rather hard to explain. Mida will try to seduce Taro, and though Taro is not perverted, he will eventually fall in love with her.

Uekiya Engeika

Main Article: Uekiya Engeika

If none of the rivals ended up affecting Taro's love life, he would likely enter a relationship with Uekiya[22], since the Gardening Club is the one club that he actually ever seriously considered joining.[23]He would "wind up" with Uekiya if Ayano or the other rivals never existed.[22]


His parents look very ordinary. His father looks like an older version of him, and his mother looks as plain as he does.[24] If they suspected he was in danger, they would move towns for him.[25]

Hanako Yamada
Main Article: Hanako Yamada

Hanako is Taro's younger sister. If she ever got a boyfriend, he would be sad that he is no longer the center of her world; however, he would be happy that she is finally independent from him in a bittersweet way.[26] His sanity variable will greatly decrease if he knows of her death.[27]

At the end of her week, she will try to force her brother to agree that he'll never get a girlfriend.[28] If he rejects her, he will give her a "tough love" speech about not being so clingy, needy and depending on him for everything.[29]

On August 1st, 2019, YandereDev released a manga about the backstory of Nemesis. The comic explained how Nemesis was trying to hunt the person who killed her brother, Taro. That's why she targets Ayano Aishi in Mission Mode.[30]


  • In Japanese, word "senpai" (先輩) means "upperclassman".
  • His name, Taro Yamada, is the Japanese equivalent of "John Doe". John Doe can refer to a hypothetical person whose real identity is unknown. If he is female, the name will be Taeko Yamada.[31] The name "Taro" is written as タロウ in Katakana. Written in Kanji, like 多朗, the name can mean "many bright". However, there are also other kanji writings for this name. For instance, "太郎" means "big son"; 立楼 means "standing tower"; and 汰滝 means "selected waterfall".
    • His name will never be spoken aloud, but it will appear in the Student Info screen and on in-game social media. The player may be able to pick his name in a future build.[32] In the official game, the player will be able to choose his gender.
  • Clubs won't factor into his life much. He might visit some clubs on a "trial" basis, but will be clubless for the whole game.[33]
  • In the future, there might be a "date gameplay" mechanic in the street.[34]
  • The character model that was used to make him is available in the Unity Assets store under the name Taichi Hayami.
  • His birthday might be April 1st.[35][36]
  • He has an unnamed career path that has not been revealed yet.[37]
    • According to YandereDev, during a video he made answering questions from a fan named Victorialand05, he stated that Taro would like to become an author after he graduates, he has thought since he was a kid and has written a few stories. But he's unsure if he will go forward with it or choose something else instead.[38]
  • He has never bought a panty shot from Info-chan.[39]
  • He can probably cook a few simple meals.[40]
    • But for some reason, he tells Amai that he doesn't know how to cook at all.
  • His favorite food is sushi.[41]
  • His lines will be affected by the elimination method used on the rivals.[42]
  • If too many girls die or go missing immediately after meeting him, rumors may be possible that he is a serial killer. [43]
  • In the future, it will be possible to steal his clothes and shoes from the gymnasium.[44] YandereDev has said that the game mechanic of stealing items from him for the static Senpai Shrine has been planned since its implementation.[45]
  • On December 23rd, 2015, YandereDev posted a comic created by Achromatic, which joked about what would happen if he was allergic to cats. If he was ever allergic to cats, Ayano would kill her own beloved cat for him.[46] However, him being allergic to cats is not necessarily canon yet. The comic can be viewed on YandereDev's website.
  • On Akademi's school Kaobook page, there was originally a post made by him asking how old the sakura trees are. Later, it was changed so that Sakyu Basu posted it.
  • The reason he is so popular is because he sat in the "Main Character Chair". From that moment on, his fate and destiny were set in stone.[47]
  • He wrote a book How to Hentai without Hentaing, seen in the May 7th, 2015 Build. This object was later removed; YandereDev has since declared it non-canon.[48]
    • The book was reintroduced with a different cover in the December 16th, 2016 Build. It can be found inside the safe, which can be opened with a key during Mission Mode.
    • However, in April 2021 builds, it was removed again due to YandereDev disliked that feature eventually.
  • In the February 17th, 2016 Build, he was shown in his student profile as darker skinned, blond with spiky hair, and wearing shades. He was made to look that way because YandereDev was testing out new customization features and forgot to reset him.[49]
  • Tripwires and bucket traps never worked on Taro. This is because according to YandereDev, Taro was pranked a lot in middle school and has become vigilant of pranks.[50]
    • When he's about to get electrocuted by the Car Battery, just like the Faculty and the student council, he'll dodge the puddle to avoid being electrified.
  • According to a question YandereDev answered, if Taro ever reported Mida Rana's sexual harassment to the Headmaster, the headmaster would think '"What's wrong with this guy? When I was his age, I had a huge crush on my teacher, and wanted to marry her! He's so lucky!! Why is he complaining?!"'. The headmaster would ultimately tell him to go file a report with the Guidance Conselor.[51]
  • If Taro imprisoned Ayano with the intentions to "rehabilitate" her, she would fool him and "pretend" to be fixed. Once she manipulates him into releasing her, she would reverse the situation, and make Taro her prisoner, or take any course of action to be his girlfriend.[20]
  • According to his Thursday conversation with Amai, his favorite color is black.
  • YandereDev says that Taro likes "sweet and gentle" girls.[22]

That sounds pretty scary.You know, I read a book that said our dreams are actually reflections of our subconscious feelings. Maybe your dream means that you subconsciously feel worried that your hair is a hazard. If you cut your hair...maybe...you'd stop having the nightmares.

Huh? I don't get what you mean...
I...haven't really figured that out yet...

I can't believe you'd make me listen to this...!

For a long time, I thought I might have feelings for my childhood friend, Osana. But, recently...we've had such a hard time getting along with one another.

And now...I keep asking myself if I really made the right choice or not.

— Senpai talking with Amai Odayaka if he rejects Osana's love confession.

Me, wearing an apron? I just...can't see it. I feel like it wouldn't be...me.
My favorite color? That's an easy one - it's black! The coolest color!

— Senpai and Amai's conversation on Tuesday morning.

Haha, alright, let's have a look...

— Senpai receiving the apron.

Whoa - you're right! This DOES look good! I honestly didn't expect it to be so...cool!
I don't know why I thought that all aprons had to be pink and girly. You really proved me wrong!
Honestly...yeah, it does! I can't wait until I have a good opportunity to wear this apron for the first time!
I would appreciate that a lot! I'm looking forward into it!

— Senpai if the apron wasn't swapped.

...uh...Amai...is this your idea of a joke?
What do you mean? Where's the right apron, then?
...yeah, I, uh...I don't really know what to say...
...I, uh...yeah. Sure. Okay. I guess.

— Senpai if the apron was swapped.

I'm still pretty nervous...I feel like I'm going to screw it up.
If that's really all there is to it, then...I suppose I shouldn't be so worried.
...hmm...okay...looks...simple enough...
All right, if you say so!
Okay, then - see you at lunchtime!

— Senpai and Amai's conversation on Wednesday morning.

...okay, so... the recipe says...

— Senpai following the recipe.

...oof, I need a break...

— Senpai taking a break.

Hey... it actually turned out pretty good!

— Senpai if the recipe wasn't sabotaged.

Actually, it turned out great!
Following the instructions was easier than I expected, and the dish tasted delicious!
And, thanks to that apron you gave me, my uniform didn't get dirty, either!
Would you be willing to share more recipes with me?
Haha! I wouldn't go that far, but cooking sure is fun!

— Senpai talking to Amai if the recipe wasn't sabotaged.

Ew! Yuck! This tastes awful...

— Senpai if the recipe was sabotaged.

...uh...well...not so good...
Well, I followed the recipe to the letter, but the end result was...a disaster.
Yeah, I do. Here it is.
Huh? What do you mean?
...well...I don't know what to tell you. I guess I'll let you figure out this mystery by your own...

— Senpai talking to Amai if the recipe was sabotaged.

Well, sort of. But...there are a few things that make cooking seem kinda...scary. Sharp knives...open flames...boiling water...if I make a single mistake, I could get hurt!
Oh...I never knew that! Is there any reason why someone would actually want to use a gas stove instead of an induction cooktop, then?
Really? Aren't you worried about a gas leak causing an explosion, or anything like that?
Wow! You really seem to know your stuff, Amai! But...you specialize in baked goods, and chocolates, and stuff like that, right? How often do you actually need to cook on a stovetop?
Really?! Wow! I love fudge! I'd love to taste some after you're done!

— Amai and Senpai's conversation before entering the school on Thursday.

A...picnic? You mean, eating outdoors?
Oh! Well, um...I honestly never gave it a try.
It sounds nice in theory, but...will we have to worry about insects? Ants and flies and that sort of thing?
Well, if you say so! Sure...let's have a picnic!
Yeah...I'm looking forward to it, too!

— Senpai and Amai's conversation on Thursday morning.

I've never actually been back here before...it's pretty nice!
You're right! It's nice and quiet. I could read a book without distractions here!
Yeah, let's get started! What did you bring, Amai?
Oh, I just brought some sandwiches...I'm still not much of a cook yet.
Haha...we'll see about that!

— Senpai if Ayano didn't attract insects.

Uh, Amai...I thought you said we wouldn't have to worry about insects.
Maybe an animal died back here? And the decaying corpse attracted a bunch of-
...I hate to say it, but I think my appetite is already gone.
I'm sorry, Amai. Maybe we should eat indoors today, after all.
...(sigh)...sheesh...what a shame...

— Senpai if Ayano attracted insects.

Art? Um...what do you mean?
Really? Wow! That sounds cool!
Oh, awesome! Do you get a lot of views?
Whoa! I didn't realize you were Internet famous! Send me a link so I can check out your work!
I'm worried about my next exam, so I'm going to spend the morning studying. I'll check out your page at lunchtime, though!

— Senpai and Amai's conversation on Friday morning.

Okay, time to check out Amai's art...

— Senpai checking out Amai's cake.

Whoa!! This is some really impressive stuff!!
This stuff could be in a museum...
It's easy to see how she reached ten thousand followers...
Next time I see her, I'll have to praise her work...

— Senpai if Ayano didn't vandalize the cake.

...uh...this is...not what I expected...
...looks like her follower count is taking a nosedive, too...
...I'm just...gonna...move on...yeah...

— Senpai if Ayano vandalized the cake.

What is it?

— Senpai and Amai at the confession tree at Friday.

To tell you the truth...
I...I feel the same way about you!
Of course I am, I love you!

— Senpai accepting Amai.

...well...uh..to tell you the truth...
...I'm very sorry, but... I don't think we're right for each other...
...no...it's not just that...
...it's...it's more than that.
It's just...not going to work.
I'm sorry.

— Senpai rejecting Amai.

Dialogue with Kizana

Huh?! Me?! Why?!
So...you're saying that...you want to exploit my misery for your personal gain?
...huh. I...never thought about it like that. The last person who saw me in a bad mood wanted to cheer me up...but...
You're saying that I should...use my feelings to create art that otherwise have never existed?
Well...I guess it *would* be better than just spending all day sulking...
...um...I never agreed to -

— Dialogue of Senpai with Kizana after eliminating Amai.
