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".
Senpai's 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 Senpai's name in a future build. In the official game, the player will be able to choose Senpai's gender.
- Main Article: Intros
In the first intro cutscene, he was first seen in Ayano's dream, where the player can customize him. The next morning, Ayano, who was late to school, bumps into him and immediately becomes obsessed with him. Senpai, however, doesn't know this and will accept the love confession of any girl who chooses to do so. Right after he meets Ayano, he is scolded by Osana Najimi and they walk the rest of the way to school together, with a lamenting Ayano watching from afar. Info-chan watches the entire scene from behind them.
In the second intro, Senpai is not seen outside of customization. However, Info-chan calls Ayano out on stalking an upperclassman and tells her that the girl he was with is named Osana Najimi. Osana Najimi is Senpai’s childhood friend.
In the official intro, Senpai is seen bumping into Ayano and helping her up. He then waves and walks to meet up with Osana.
Appearance (Default Look)
Senpai's default appearance has light skin, charcoal grey eyes, and short, dark hair. He is the same height as every other male student in the game so that all animations can link up. If possible, YandereDev would want him to be slightly taller. This is his default look because he is meant to look like a generic male anime protagonist.
Senpai wears the default male school uniform, with gold buttons and black cloth, unless the player changes the oufits. Then Senpai will wear that specific dress code's generic male uniform.
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, Senpai will appear with his default look. His gender can be changed in the final game. YandereDev might release Senpai's textures and put them in the Streaming Assets folder so that the player can make custom skins for Senpai.
He is the only character highlighted pink in Yandere Vision.
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.
"An Average Student. \ Average grades, average looks, average life... \ I'm not sure what you see in him."
The first intro portrays Senpai as kind and considerate. He helps Ayano up after he bumps into her and is seemingly friendly.  He doesn't resent Osana Najimi for her hostility toward him and just follows her orders.
Senpai may also be somewhat of a pushover; he doesn't protest Osana's rude behavior and will accept any confession he receives (except Osana's if sabotaged), which is why Ayano must eliminate her rivals before they confess.
The second intro's Senpai isn't characterized nearly as much as the first. His personality is never mentioned by Ayano or Info-chan. He still accepts the confession of any rival with a good enough reputation (unless he is on bad terms with them from Ayano's sabotage), which might imply that he's still rather meek. However, this could be because he's on good terms with all the rivals.
Senpai is a loner who enjoys nature more than the company of people. 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 though this only occurs with the player, as nobody else will commit murder at this point.
Senpai is not popular in the beginning, although girls will fall in love with him over the course of the game. Some popular people might even notice him. Senpai 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. He never seems to realize why Ayano follows him around and only asks her to leave him alone if she gets too close.
He is an average male student who gets average grades.
His personality will be shaped and molded by the way that people around him are disappearing. However, this feature is still under development.
- If too many rivals died shortly after they talk to him, Senpai will wonder if he is cursed.
- In later stages of game development, it was planned that if Senpai had this idea, he will reject Ayano's confession, fearing her death as with all others.
- If Senpai 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.
- If too many rivals are eliminated via matchmaking suitors, Senpai 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.
- Similarly, if the player stops coming to the school continuously, Senpai will have suspicion that Ayano is a delinquent (since she has to skip school for torturing). This will potentially lead to a heartbroken game over though it is an upcoming feature.
- If rivals are all framed (for murder, leading to life sentence), Senpai will wonder if all women are murderers.
- If rivals frequently commit suicide, then Senpai will think that all women are on the brink of suicide.
- If rivals are befriended and promise to stay away from Senpai, Senpai will worry that no one will ever interested on him on spending time with him.
Depending on Ayano's actions, Senpai might develop PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder), a personality complex, a nervous disorder, or social anxieties.
In the future, Senpai will have a sanity meter. His sanity will drop if rivals keep dying. His sanity will drop more if Osana or Hanako dies. If Senpai 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 is already implemented but currently serves no gameplay purpose). Senpai's current sanity will affect his daily routine and personality. Senpai's sanity meter is currently not implemented yet, but YandereDev mentioned its possible implementation in the future.
Senpai's default reputation is 0.
A backstory has never been fully written for Senpai. He is meant to be plain and average.
Senpai has a younger sister. Their parents look very ordinary. His father looks like an older version of him, and his mother looks as plain as he does. If they suspected he was in danger, they would move town for him.
Info-chan cannot dig up any dark secrets about Senpai. He appears to have none at all. However, it might be because Senpai is not an intended enemy in the game, so having a dark secret is purposeless.
At 7:05 AM, Senpai enters the school grounds. 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. He does not socialize with the other students, other than Osana.
Senpai walks to class again at 1:30 PM and finishes his afternoon classes at 3:30 PM. Afterward, he will remain reading at the fountain until the school day ends. During cleaning time, he can be seen cleaning the fountain in the Plaza. No matter what time the player chooses to leave school, Ayano always watches him go home until he arrives at his house safely.
Additionally, he will follow the schedule of any Rival interactions that Ayano can sabotage.
At 7:00 AM, Senpai and Osana have a conversation by the school's front gates. Osana asks Senpai to meet her on the rooftop at lunchtime, and he agrees, even though he doesn't know what she's planning.
As it turns out, Osana brought two homemade bentos, one for herself and one for Senpai. The player has an opportunity to sabotage Senpai's lunch with emetic poison when Osana leaves the bentos unattended on her desk in Classroom 2-1.
At 1:02 PM, Senpai meets Osana on the rooftop, and she surprises him with the homemade lunch. If the player didn't poison his bento, he'll tell Osana that the food is delicious, and they'll eat together until it's time to go back to class. If the player did poison his bento, Senpai will complain about his upset stomach and run to the nearest bathroom to throw up. After washing his hands, he'll go back to his classroom and sit at his desk until class begins.
At 7:00 AM, Senpai and Osana have a conversation by the school's front gates. Osana asks about his favorite book, which was a gift from his sister, and Senpai lets her borrow it for the rest of the day, but only if she promises to take good care of it.
On most days, Senpai spends his time before class reading, but since Osana has his book, he decides to go for a walk around the outside of the school.
At lunchtime, Osana goes down to the plaza to read Senpai's book at the fountain, just like he does. The player has an opportunity to sabotage the book by pushing it into the fountain when Osana gets up to stretch.
At 5:29 PM, Senpai meets Osana at the front gates so she can return his book. If the player didn't ruin his book, Osana will say that she liked it, and they'll walk home together. If the player did ruin his book, Senpai will be angry at Osana for breaking her promise, and he'll walk home by himself.
At 7:00 AM, Senpai and Osana have a conversation by the school's front gates. Osana asks about his favorite spot in the school, the plaza. Senpai says that it's the most soothing place he knows about, and she tells him that she's going to find a better spot.
At lunchtime, Osana sees the East Fountain and takes a few pictures with her phone so she can show it to Senpai. The player has an opportunity to steal Osana's phone, use it to take pictures of another girl's panties, and return the phone to Osana's desk.
At 5:21 PM, Senpai meets Osana at the front gates to see the pictures she took. If the player didn't take lewd photographs, he'll see the pictures of the East Fountain and tell her that she has a talent for photography, and they'll walk home together. If the player did take lewd photographs, Senpai will see them and think that Osana is perverted, and he'll walk home by himself.
Before 7:00 AM, while walking to school together, Senpai and Osana have a noteworthy conversation.
The conversation is too long to include here, but the most important thing to know is that Osana has a recurring nightmare where someone ties her hair around something heavy and throws it into the ocean, causing her to drown. This is a reference to one of Osana's special eliminations.
Obviously, Senpai is concerned when he hears that his childhood friend is being tormented by nightmares, and he offers some insight into what could be causing them, and how to make them stop.
At 7:00 AM, Senpai and Osana have their usual conversation by the school's front gates. Osana asks Senpai if he wants to go to the movies with her, and he says yes, so they agree to meet at the front gates at 5:30 PM so they can leave on time.
After cleaning time, Osana will take a nap on the school rooftop so she won't fall asleep during the date. The player has an opportunity to take Osana's phone and turn off the alarm so she doesn't wake up and misses the date.
If the player didn't sabotage the alarm, Senpai will meet Osana at the front gates at 5:24 PM, and they'll go to the movies. If the player did sabotage the alarm, Senpai will wait for her until 5:55 PM, become impatient, and walk home by himself.
At 7:00 AM, Senpai and Osana have a conversation by the school's front gates. Osana asks Senpai about his favorite kind of music, classical, and he asks about her favorite, J-pop and J-rock. When Senpai says that he doesn't like modern music, she decides to put together a playlist for him to listen to at lunchtime.
Before she makes the mixtape, Osana will have a conversation with Musume Ronshaku, the leader of the Bullies. The player has an opportunity to record this conversation, edit the audio to make it sound like Osana is insulting Senpai, steal her phone, and replace the music with the doctored audio.
At 1:02 PM, Senpai meets Osana on the rooftop, and he listens to whatever audio is on her phone. If the player didn't replace the audio, he will hear music from one of Osana's favorite pop groups, say that he likes it, and sit beside her to eat lunch. If the player did replace the audio, Senpai will hear what he thinks is a clip of Osana saying nasty things about him, which causes him to storm off angrily and eat his bento in the plaza that he most spent until the lunch time is over.
At 5:16 PM, Senpai will discover a note in his locker from Osana asking him to meet her under the mythical cherry tree. He'll run straight there, meeting her at 5:20 PM.
Under the tree, Osana will confess her feelings to Senpai, saying that she loves him more than anything else in the world. Under most circumstances, Senpai will say that he feels the same way about her, and they'll become boyfriend and girlfriend. However, if the player manages to sabotage all five events, or if Osana's reputation is below -100, Senpai will reject her love confession.
These events won't happen naturally; the player has to set them in motion.
If Osana dies and her corpse is discovered, Senpai will stay home from school for one day to mourn her death.
On Wednesday, if the player steals Osana's phone and doesn't give it back, Senpai will be disappointed that he couldn't see the pictures, but it won't count as sabotage, and they'll just walk home together.
On Friday, if the player steals Osana's phone and doesn't give it back, Senpai will be disappointed that he couldn't hear the music, but it won't count as sabotage, and they'll just eat lunch together.
If the player causes a police investigation on Friday, Osana will still ask Senpai to meet her under the mythical cherry tree, and the confession scene will take place at nighttime.
Senpai 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.
Staying near Senpai 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 Senpai'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 Senpai's aura for longer without being noticed. Senpai will not recognize her when wearing a mask.
Senpai is a Loner. When he sees a corpse, bloodstains, suspicious weapons or limbs, he will run out of the school grounds. This can be useful to know if you want to get rid of Senpai early in the day, as he has a unique reaction to murder that makes him a significant obstacle. 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).
Senpai will have a hidden sanity variable that will influence some of the game's endings and might influence his everyday behavior.
In the future, there might be a "date gameplay" mechanic in the street.
Normally he cannot be killed like a normal student due to his aura. Certain Easter Eggs can still kill him, while other easter eggs that cannot kill him. Normally, after the player kills him with Easter Eggs, he will respawn the next day, as he is not intended to be killed for now.
As of March 31st 2020, he can be killed with snap mode.
- Main Article: Rivals
In the full game, Senpai 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. This bypasses all exception (he dislikes delinquents, even though Osoro, the head of all delinquents, is the 8th rival). However, he cannot stop the rivals from being arrested if they are framed.
- Main Article: Hanako Yamada
She and Senpai are sister and brother. If Hanako ever got a boyfriend, Senpai 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. Senpai's sanity variable will greatly decrease if he knows of her death.
At the end of Hanako's week, she will try to force her brother to agree that he'll never get a girlfriend. If Senpai rejects her, he will give her a "tough love" speech about not being so clingy, needy and depending on him for everything.
- Main Article: Nemesis
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 in Mission Mode.
- Main Article: Osana Najimi
Osana is Taro's tsundere childhood friend. When Osana, Senpai, and Senpai's little sister, Hanako, were all younger, they used to hang out together. The two continue to be very close, meeting over together in the morning every day.
YandereDev has not revealed why Senpai chooses to spend time with Osana despite her treatment of him. After she is eliminated, there may be a cutscene showing how Senpai is handling the situation. Her death, like that of Hanako, would cause Senpai's sanity to drop significantly.
- Main Article: Amai Odayaka
Amai will serve as a positive influence in Senpai's life after Osana is eliminated, as she comforts him after listening to his distress.
- Main Article: Kizana Sunobu
Senpai considers Kizana a bit bossy but is impressed by her passion for acting and is flattered by what she thinks of him.
- 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.
- Main Article: Uekiya Engeika
If none of the rivals ended up affecting Senpai's love life, he would likely enter a relationship with Uekiya, since the Gardening Club is the one club that he actually ever seriously considered joining.
The topics towards Taro are (Negative/Positive/Neutral) as follows:
- Martial Arts
- Everything else.
- The character model that was used to make Senpai is available in the Unity Assets store under the name Taichi Hayami.
- In Japanese, senpai (先輩) means upperclassman.
- Senpai's birthday might be the same as Ayano's birthday, April 1st.
- Senpai has an unnamed career path that has not been revealed yet.
- Senpai has never bought a panty shot from Info-chan.
- Senpai can probably cook a few simple meals.
- Senpai will not react to Ayano aiming her phone at him. Instead, he will fear Ayano if she aims a camera on Senpai.
- Senpai's lines will be affected by the elimination method used on the rivals.
- If too many girls die or go missing immediately after meeting Senpai, rumors may spread that he is a serial killer. 
- In the future, it will be possible to steal Senpai's clothes and shoes from the gymnasium. YandereDev has said that the game mechanic of stealing items from Senpai for the static Senpai Shrine has been planned since its implementation.
- Ayano could possibly go on a date with Senpai if a small town was added.
- Senpai doesn't appear in Mission Mode.
- There are 25,000 different combinations of customization options for Senpai - 150,000 different combinations if Senpai is in a customized uniform.
- On December 23rd, 2015, YandereDev posted a comic created by Achromatic, which joked about what would happen if Senpai was allergic to cats. If Senpai was ever allergic to cats, Ayano would kill her own beloved cat for him. However, Senpai being allergic to cats is not necessarily canon yet. The comic can be viewed on YandereDev's website.
- Senpai's voice lines for the poisoning event, as shown in "How to poison a girl in Yandere Simulator", were not in the actual game.
- The word that Senpai's lines "You...you killed them! Stay back! Get away from me!", He actually says "You killed them! Stay back! Get away from me!", as he didn't say "You" at the first line.
- On Akademi High School's Kaobook page, there was originally a post made by Senpai asking how old the sakura trees are. Later, it was changed so that Sakyu Basu posted it.
- The reason Senpai is so popular is because he sat in the "Main Character Chair". From that moment on, his fate and destiny were set in stone.
- Senpai 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.
- 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.
- In the February 17th, 2016 Build, Senpai 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.
- As of March 31st, 2020 Build, Senpai will react to Ayano misbehaving faster than other students.
- Eventually, if Senpai witnesses a corpse, his eyes are shrunk. However, if Ayano carrying a corpse in front of him while Senpai's eyes shrink, Senpai's eyes will turn his eyes into default size.
- If students and Senpai see or hear something suspicious (such as Ayano laughing, but they didn't see who was doing it), everyone stand still, while Senpai is the only student who acts out the 'something isn't right' animation.
- Senpai is currently the only student who cannot be killed, drowned, poisoned, electrocuted, bullied to suicide, etc, as he is technically an extremely powerful character and immune to being killed from using every elimination method. However, though Senpai is technically not immune to be killed, he will be killed in SNAP mode or by using easter eggs (some of the easter eggs that cannot kill him, such as Ebola).

— Senpai and Osana's conversation after school on Wednesday if Osana's phone is never returned.
|“||Nightmares? Well...lately, I've been having a dream where I'm standing outside of school, underneath a tree...and for some reason, I can't move a single muscle...I'm like a statue. I guess I wouldn't really call it a nightmare...just a weird dream. How about you?
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.
When do you plan to cut you hair, anyway? It's almost touching the ground...
Huh? I don't get what you mean...
I...haven't really figured that out yet...
— Senpai and Osana's conversation before school on Thursday.

Okay, if you say so...
What was that?

— Senpai running out of patience if Ayano turns off Osana's phone alarm.
|“||Welll, lately I've been listening to a lot of classic stuffs. Beethoven, Mozart, Bach...
Oh yeah? What do you listen to?
Ah, that's not my really type of music...
Well, I suppose it wouldn't hurt...
— Senpai and Osana conversation on Friday morning.
|“||All right, I'll listen...||”|
— Senpai listing to music on Osana's phone at lunchtime on Friday.
|“||Hey...you're right...this is pretty good!
It's not going to replace Mozart anytime soon...but it's not bad at all
— Senpai enjoying the music on Osana's phone on Friday.
|“||Osana...what the hell?!
I can't believe you'd make me listen to this...!
— Senpai reacting to the audio on Osana's phone if Ayano doctored it.
What is it?

Osana, I...I feel the same way about you.
Of course I am. I love you Osana.

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