These are the various personas in Yandere Simulator. They are not to be confused with personalities. Personas categorize how students react to murders, corpses, and cameras.
Please do not add fanon personas here. Fanon content goes here.
When a Coward student discovers a corpse, they will run out of school and call the police. But upon witnessing a murder, they will be completely terrified, will plead for mercy and promise to keep quiet as long as the murderer spares them. The next day they'll ask you to leave them alone. Coward witnesses won't call the police or lower your reputation. Trying to take a photo of a coward student will result in them covering their face.
Students with the Dangerous persona will not pose when a camera is pointed at them. They will just stand with no action. When they witness you murdering somebody, they will take action. For now, all students with the Dangerous persona will pepper spray you, restrain you, and then handcuff you, resulting in a game over. Currently, all of the students with this persona are part of the student council.
This is the designated persona for Yandere-chan and her mother. They will stop at nothing to be with their crush and will kill rivals for their lover's affection.
Similar to Cowards, Fragile students will become terrified of Yandere-chan and will start begging her to spare their life in exchange for their silence. Fragile students will cover their face if Yandere-chan attempts to take a picture of them. The only difference is that fragile students can also be used to eliminate other students by using the driven to murder method.
If someone with a Heroic persona discovers a corpse, they will run to tell a teacher. If they witness a murder, they'll chase you and try to restrain you. There is a small mini-game after being chased down by the witness where you must press different buttons to avoid the attack. If you win, the NPC you're fighting dies. If you lose, you will be apprehended, causing a Game Over. Heroic students will look suspiciously at the camera if you point it at their face.
If a Loner witnesses or discovers a corpse, they will run out of school and call the police. Unlike the cowards, they will call the police regardless of whether or not they witnessed murder. Loners are shy and will typically cover their face if you point your camera at them. However, two of the loners at school will give you a suspicious look instead.
A student with the Lovestruck persona will not react to the camera at all, but instead give you a reputation penalty. Formerly, such students will glitch out if they witness a murder or find a corpse. If shown a corpse they will stand there and not move but follow you around. However, now that Yandere Simulator's official demo has been released, this persona is fully functional. They react to a corpse by running to tell Senpai, and will then run out of school with him. If they witness murder, they will tell Senpai; resulting in an instant game over. All rivals (possible exceptions being Oka Ruto, Muja Kina, Mida Rana, and Osoro Shidesu) will have this persona. If a rival is eliminated peacefully, she will not have this persona anymore.
Students with the phone addict persona will strike a cute pose when a camera is pointed at them. When they witness a murder or find a corpse, they will take a photo and begin texting it to the police. If the photo has evidence that you're the murderer (e.g. bloody, insane, holding a weapon, dragging a body, actually murdering), then you will get an 'Exposed' game over. If it doesn't, the police timer will appear. Additionally, any students who are on their phones when they witness murder will automatically switch to this persona but will text the police at half the speed of a regular phone addict student.
If a Social Butterfly witnesses a murder, they will go to a populated group and will call the police, if they see you come close to them after arriving at the populated area they will scream, making people look at the murderer and will make the murderer's reputation go down. If the murderer continues to kill people in their sight they will mentally collapse and curl up. If you try to take a photo of them, they'll happily pose for the picture.
Students with the spiteful persona will give an irritated look and hide their face. When they witness a murder, they will either go upon the loner persona, but if it's a person they hate or a person who has a low rep- for example, causing the bullies to harass a spiteful student, a bullied student who has a low rep- they will congratulate the murderer and run away from school.
All faculty members (with the exception of the coach) have this persona. Strict NPCs will send Yandere-chan to the guidance counselor if she is caught misbehaving. They will be informed of murder by Teacher's Pets. If a Strict NPC sees a corpse, they will call the police and then guard the corpse until the police arrive. While guarding the corpse, if they see Yandere-chan holding a weapon, bloody, or insane, they will attempt to apprehend her. Strict NPCs will give the player a suspicious look if they point aim their camera at them. If she murders a student in front of a teacher, they will chase and restrain Yandere-chan. Friendly But Strict is essentially the same, but they will smile and give the player a suspicious look if photographed.
If a Teacher's Pet discovers a corpse or witnesses murder, they will go find their favorite teacher and show her the body. If you move the body out of their sight, the teacher will believe it was a prank and will become angry with the witness. The witness will then carry on with his/her day traumatized. If the teacher finds the body, the witness will wait with the teacher for the police as she looks at it. If the teacher's pet discovers a corpse or witnesses murder, but someone is already calling the police, they will go hide in their classroom.
Students with the violent persona would give an irritated look and hide their face. If the player is in the photography club, they would not hide their face, but their irritated demeanor would still be present. If the player bumps into them 5 times, or gets too close to them with a weapon, the fighting minigame would occur. The player must press three buttons within a small period of time to win. If the player wins, the Violent NPC will drop their weapon and sulk on the bench near the incinerator. If Yandere-chan takes too much damage, the Violent NPC will back off, leaving the player with cuts, bruises, and a limp. When witnessing a murder, they would attack the player via the fighting minigame. The student will relentlessly attack the player despite being in pain until the player is knocked out. Once the Student has been weakened, the player can kill the student with a weapon. This persona has only been used by delinquents.
Students with the Sleuth persona are typically cheery and playful. They spend most of their time slacking off in their clubroom. They will strike a cute pose if a camera is aimed at them. However, if the school atmosphere goes down far enough, they will devote every hour of the school day searching for the perpetrator of the murders. Instead of their usually silly camera reaction, they will look suspiciously at the player if their camera is aimed at them. When they are in their "serious mode," they will search the school with their camera close by. If they witness murder, they will snap a picture of the player, similar to the phone addict, and text the police. If the player fails to kill them before the timer is up, they will receive a game over. If they find yandere-chan commit murder they will stalk her to gather incriminating footage of her
A student with this persona will not speak to Yandere-chan and push her away if she comes close unless she has a low reputation. If they see Yandere-chan with a weapon, they will raise theirs and defend themselves when attacked, causing an instant game over. If they see Yandere-chan with a dead body, they will attack her and, again, cause an instant game over. This persona was used by the old delinquents and may never be used again.
If someone with an Evil persona discovers a corpse, they'll become fascinated with it and contemplate taking a closer look before running away from the school. If they witness a murder, they will compliment you and run out of the school. They will not talk to the murderer the next day to avoid looking like an accomplice. Evil students won't call the police or lower your reputation if they witnessed you committing murder. If you try to take a photo of them, they give you an irritated look before hiding their face. The Evil persona was removed and replaced by the Spiteful persona in the March 6, 2018, update. However, it can still be accessed through JSON editing.
Due to not being completed, a student with the tsundere persona will react to cameras by striking a cute pose. Presently, such students will glitch out if they witness a murder or find a corpse. If shown a corpse they will stand there and not move but follow you around. This persona was removed and replaced with the Lovestruck persona.
In spite of this persona not being in the game, YandereDev has stated that a student with this persona won't react to murder or corpses in any way.
In the future, if students have witnessed homicide or corpses enough, they will become "Broken". If they see any more murderous activity, they will not react to corpses or murder anymore.
Can be seen by unlocking all student information by pressing the S key in the debug menu and checking the second reserved student slot. If given to a student, they will automatically apprehend Yandere-chan, should she try to kill them, and will apprehend her if they witness her commit murder.
The vengeful persona is currently not functional, but students with this persona will stalk Yandere-chan and try to catch her in the act of murder.
