One day, I was messing around on Mission Mode (because I can't go play the game itself 'cause the game crashes when I try to go to school) on the September 7th build, when the target's name appeared as "Ai Kato". There was no portrait and I couldn't see if there was any student called Ai Kato. But, as a curious and theorist guy as I am, I went to this wiki and searched for any student called Ai Kato, I didn't find any page, so I went to Google Translate to translate the words of the name (I follow the development of Yandere Simulator since 2015, so I know YandereDev very well), and turns out it was very interesting. "Ai" means "love" and "Kato" means "corner", exactly how the Mysterious Obstacle was represented in "January Osana Progress" video, they were spying on Osana by the corner. So here's my theory:
The Mysterious Obstacle's name is Ai Kato, they (probably she) has a crush on Osana (or just admire her a lot and don't have courage to talk to her, or just protects her for some reason).
They are super strong, leading me to think that they are the previous leader of the Martial Arts Club, aaand Budo Masuta's crush.
And how to get rid of Ai Kato is: Matchmaking her with Budo, basically, since you're not able to kill her because of her Martial Arts skills.
So, what do you think of the theory? Do you have another explanation for how the name? Just comment below!
She is Rival Chan, and previous Martial Arts leader. Budo have crush on her.
Proofs She is Rival Chan:
- Her Hangout spot is same as Rival chan.
- If You spawn her Rival Chan Will disappear.
- She have Gentle Eye type in Json.
- She have Same Indle animation as Rival chan.
I don't think the Mysterious Obstacle is the previous club leader. Her strength says "Invincible". If her strength was Invincible, how would've Budo beaten her? It's possible she started out really strong, and after Budo beat her, she kept doing martial arts. But we'll never know who the previous club leader was or the identity of the Mysterious Obstacle. YandereDev won't be able to tell us. We've proven he can't trust us with any secret.
That's just a theory, too, so no hate comments. I only have one piece of evidence, and you guys have 3 or more. I'm pretty sure I can't beat that. But, like I said, her strength is invincible, so how would've Budo beaten her?
Or she just basically doesn't have a backstory and is just there to make it harder to kill Osana. I don't think she is Rival chan because their personalities don't seem to match. I could eventually believe that she has a crush on Osana and we will be able to matchmake them. And maybe we could get rid of her by befriending her or befriending Osana to the point when they both trust you so Obstacle doesn't feel the need to follow Osana when we are with her.
