"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.
Students and even teachers adore him. 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."
Senpai is a bright, average, and handsome young man.
Senpai's default appearance has black hair that is styled in a messy bowl haircut. His eyes are grey. He wears the default male uniform, unless customized by the player.
Senpai has the Loner persona. If he witnesses the player committing murder, they will get a Game Over. If he witnesses the player taking panty shots, they will get a Game Over. If he sees the player visibly armed, they will get a Game Over. If he sees the player covered in blood, they will get a Game Over. If the player stands in front of him for too long, they will get a Game Over. If Senpai sees the player visibly insane or laughing, they will get a Game Over.
He in general loves being outdoors, with a few exceptions. He is a kind person, but has limits.
If someone with the Lovestruck personality witness Yandere-Chan committing murder, they will report the matter to Senpai which instantaneously gives you a Game Over titled “EXPOSED”
- Without using Easter eggs or debug commands, Senpai can not be killed.
