Make giant naked titans appear
This was the most surprising feature to me, since I activated it by accident the first time I was playing the game. If you press the “T” button at any time the most random thing will happen: half a dozen of naked titans will start a parade around the high school as epic Japanese music starts playing. You can talk to them or even kill them with your katana!
The equivalent of Gossip Girl in Yandere Simulator’s high school is a girl originally names (again) Info-Chan. She can hook you up with information cards from every individual in the school that contain information that you will surely be interested in: who fancies Senpai, who is he planning to go with a date with next… But as they say, “information is power” and Info-Chan will ask for something in return for her services. According to the game style, her demands are indeed very creepy: she wants you to send her pantyshots from your classmates. Such pictures must be taken with your phone and sent to her, and only the ones that she finds “satisfying” will receive a compensation.
This are only a few of the several personalities Yandere-Chan can adopt. Most of them are references from YandereDev (the game’s freelance developer) to other popular video games
Change your boob’s size
This one is a pretty simple feature but still very funny. Just by using > and < you can respectively increase and decrease the size of your breasts. As silly as it sounds, you can get results like this one:
The miscellanea in this game is definitely worth of mention. There is a great amount of objects without a use beyond aesthetics that will appear around Yandere-Chan’s face when pressing “O”: a toast, a toaster, bubble tea, Senpai’s Voodoo Doll, Devil Costume, Shimapan Panties, a raw slice of meat with a knife on it…a series of random objects.
Kidnapping people is actually quite a tricky process. You need to attend several biology lessons and ask a favor from Info-Chan (you know what that means…pantyshots). You need to ask your victim to follow you to the gym locker room, poison her and leave her body in a box until you get her back at night and bring her to your place. The next morning, when you wake up, your victim will be tied up in your basement. That can be done several times.
Drawn people in the toilet
Or in the fountain (right in front of the high school door). The power of imagination is vital when you need to kill your classmates without being seen. The toilet is perfect in that aspect, because it is a very discrete location. Violence is not encouraged.
Since the protagonist is performing a series of “unethical” actions (that’s being very optimistic) she sometimes feels like she’s losing her sanity. One of the features that help get back to normal (if there’s such a thing in this game) along with watching Senpai’s photos, is laughing hysterically. You can do that using Ctrl. Yes, everything is as ironic as it sounds.
Change your mood
If there is something that we know for sure about Yandere-Chan is that she has a really unstable personality. Considering that she is already going around killing her classmates, things can actually get worse. Be careful when entering these modes because most of them cannot be reversed until you reset the game.
By pressing “P” you activate the “punished mode”. If you choose this feature Yandere-Chan will start wearing a black school uniform, an eyepatch, a black protrusion from her forehead and she will also start smoking a cigar. To top it all up, Mikel Oldfield’s “Nuclear” will start playing.
By pressing “G” you will activate the “Galo mode”. If you choose this feature will have tanned skin, supersayan hair and sunglasses. In this case “Galo Sengen” by Policeman will start playing.
By pressing “DK” you will make Yandere-Chan’s head and arms larger, giving her a simian appearance. It doesn’t take a genius to realize the reference to the mythical Donkey Kong.
Walk around armed
When you think about it is kind of amazing how a Japanese high school student can carry a knife, scissors, a box cutter, a screw driver and a katana in her uniform without arising suspicion. Cause that’s what happens in Yandere Simulator. That uniform has a lot of hiding spots!
This is one of the most elaborated killing techniques that can be found on the game. In order to carry it out, you need to attract your victim to the high school rooftop, shove her off it and keep her shoes (it is an Asian tradition to take your shoes off before committing suicide, symbolizing stepping out of the current life). If that’s all you do people will start to get suspicious, but if you have enough language points you can write suicide note and leave it on her shoes to avoid arising suspicion.
Yandere-chan can expel students by witnessing them breaking school rules and reporting them to Genka Kunahito. If the player reports to Genka once a day for five days, the current test rival Kokona Haruka will be expelled for unruly behavior.
Expose Dirty Secret
In order to expose the dirty secret, the player must buy it in the services menu. She can then report it to the counselor, who will talk to Kokona about it after school.
Frame for Theft
Every day during lunchtime, Sakyu Basu will sit down to eat lunch with her sister and take off her ring. The player has a small window of time to steal the ring and place it in Kokona's school bag. Afterwards, the counselor will reach Kokona's bag and find the missing ring.
If Yandere-chan places the ring in Kokona's bag but does not report Kokona for theft, Kokona will return the ring to Sakyu. It also will be impossible for the player to report Kokona for theft in the future.
Frame for Smoking
If the player buys cigarettes from Info-chan, she can place the carton in Kokona's school bag. Afterward, the counselor will find the cigarettes in the bag and scold Kokona.
Frame for Panty Shots
If the player steals Kokona's phone, she can take pictures of students' panties. She must leave it in the Cooking Club in the main kitchen before 4PM, when Kokona sits down to eat. After school, the counselor will search Kokona's phone and find the images.
Frame for Cheating
The player can steal a copy of answer sheet from the Faculty Room, and give it to Info-chan. She will duplicate the answer sheet. The player will have to put one copy back on the desk, and one in the current rival's desk during lunchtime. After attending the class, the counselor will find the rival "cheating" and take her to the counselor's office, where she will be expelled.
If Yandere-chan takes the answer sheet but forgets to duplicate it, a teacher will notice the missing paper and change all the answers for the test. Yandere-chan will lose the opportunity to expel the rival.
If Yandere-chan completes all the steps required to expel Kokona for cheating but does not report to the counselor, she will not be expelled.
Drowning is a way to eliminate rivals in Yandere Simulator without bloodshed.
There are several areas where the player can drown others, such as the fountain in the plaza and the first floor bathroom in the eastern wing of the school. When able to drown a student, a button will appear on the HUD that says "Drown".
Yandere-chan drowning Kokona Haruka in the toilet.
When pressed, Yandere-chan will suddenly grab the rival and hold her under the water for ten seconds, until she stops struggling. After letting go, the corpse will fall to the ground. Any student within the observable area will scream in horror and then act upon their persona. Heroic students will immediately run up to fight the player after the victim has died. If the player does not dispose of the corpse, the police will be called. They will note that the student was drowned, but will be unable to find the perpetrator if no other corpses or weapons are found.
In the future, the player will be able to drown rivals in the swimming pool, or in the massive tub in the Shower Room. These methods are not fully implemented yet, as the game is currently incomplete. It is unknown when this will be implemented.
As of the June 16th, 2015 Build, only Kokona Haruka will break paths and go to a bathroom. Yandere-chan can drown Kokona in the toilet in the first floor girls' bathroom on Wednesday from 7:30 AM to 7:32 AM.
To be able to drown a student in the fountain, the player must leave them a note asking to meet them at the fountain. This note can only be written to Kokona at the moment. The player will have a twenty-minute period to drown the student. Unless lured there, no students will currently go to observe the fountain. Kokona used to observe the fountain from 7:05 AM to 7:07 AM on Monday before the November 15th, 2015 Build.
Kokona Haruka being electrocuted in the bathroom
Electrocution is a way to eliminate students in Yandere Simulator which will not leave any evidence towards the player.
Currently, electrocution can only be performed on Kokona Haruka, as her routine has her go to the first floor bathroom at 7:30 AM on Wednesday.
There is a limited time to electrocute Kokona Haruka. While or before Kokona is inside the bathroom stall, Yandere-chan must unscrew the light switch with the screwdriver from the Science Club and fill up a bucket with water, blood, or gasoline. While Kokona is using the toilet, Yandere-chan must then turn off the lights and pour the bucket of liquid on Kokona. If Kokona leaves the bathroom stall before Yandere-chan has completed the process, then Yandere-chan will not be able to trigger the following reaction. If a liquid is spilled on Kokona first, then Yandere-chan may not have enough time to turn the lights off.
If the process is completed on time, Kokona will exclaim that she is wet in an annoyed manner and step, with her hands outstretched in disgust, out of the bathroom stall. She will then begin to feel for the light switch in the dark and proceed to turn the lights back on. However, because her still-wet left hand is on the metal faucet, an electric current will course from her right hand through her body, killing her with a startled scream. If the light switch is not unscrewed, Kokona will simply turn on the lights, then rush to the Shower Room to change.
On the Schemes menu, the description is: "This scheme will end with your rival being electrified."
In order to be able to eliminate a rival by burning them, the player first needs to fill a bucket with gasoline from a jerry can, which is located in the garden. Then they must buy a box of matches from the Drops menu for 5 panty shots.
Then, the player should douse the rival with gasoline from the bucket in order to burn her. The rival will wonder why she smells like gasoline and ponder for ten seconds before running to the shower room. During this time, the player can toss a lit match at the rival. The rival will burst into flames, scream, and try to brush off the fire, before collapsing. Any students nearby who witness the death will step back in shock for a couple of seconds before acting on their personas.
