A corpse is the body left behind when an NPC is killed in Yandere Simulator.
Types of Corpses
- Main Article: Homicide
If Yandere-chan attacks somebody using a weapon, the weapon and her uniform will be bloodied and the corpse will leak blood as she drags it. If her physical education level is high enough, the corpse can be carried, leaving only the single pool of blood from the initial attack. A blowtorch can be used to perform cauterization on a corpse, so that it does not leave a blood trail.
- Main Article: Fake Suicide
A fake suicide victim's corpse will also leak blood, unless it falls into a dumpster.
- Main Article: Kidnapping
If Yandere-chan's Biology skill is lower than Rank 2 and she uses a syringe on a student, she will accidentally kill them. If she is with her victim in the northwest storage room on the first floor, but does not close the door, her victim will die. They will also die if she stops them from following her, then attempts to tranquilize them, or if the target is a male. Their corpse will also leak blood when dragged.
To prevent the player from accidentally killing their victim, a 'Kidnapping Checklist' will appear onscreen when entering the northeast storage room on the first floor, telling the player if they are currently meeting all of the criteria to perform a kidnapping or not. If the player doesn't meet all the criteria, they will kill the victim instead.
- Main Article: Drowning
Drowned victims do not leak blood, as drowning does not create any external wounds.
- Main Article: Burning
After any student has died from burning to death, their corpse will slowly turn black. After a minute has passed, they will be pure black and no more flames will appear on their body.
- Main Article: Electrocution
Victims of electrocution do not leak blood, and their corpse will smoke slightly instead.
- Main Article: Poisoning
Victims of poisoning do not leak blood. If Yandere-chan does not touch the corpse and a student sees it, they will call their teacher regardless of their persona. The teacher will call the paramedics instead of the police, because they have no reason to believe the victim was murdered. In the future, students may call Nasu Kankoshi instead of their teacher.
Choosing to move a poisoned corpse will make it function like any other corpse, except that it will not leak blood. It can be hidden and disposed of, and anybody who sees her dragging the corpse will react based on their persona.
- Main Article: Suicide
When Yandere-chan hands a weapon to a mind-broken student, the student will kill the current rival, then will kill herself. There will be two corpses as a result, but the protagonist will not be bloody or have lost sanity. If the police timer appears, she does not need to dispose of her weapon or uniform. Murder-suicides are more difficult to hide than other methods, as there are two corpses to hide instead of one.
- Main Article: Dismemberment
Once Yandere-chan kills a student, she has the option to dismember the corpse with a circular saw. Once cut up, the dismembered victim will be in six sections: right arm, left arm, head, torso, left leg, and right leg. She can only carry one part at a time. Police and NPCs will not react to a dismembered corpse yet.
Bodies can be hidden in dumpsters (currently only fake suicide victims), bathroom stalls, and empty rooms. If Yandere-chan goes to class, the corpse will be discovered, a police investigation will occur, and the day will end.
When dragging corpses through the hallways, students and teachers in their classrooms will see Yandere-chan unless the classroom doors are closed.
Hiding corpses is only a temporary solution, as they will still be found at the end of the day unless they are disposed of.
Corpses won't be able to be hidden in lockers as Japanese lockers are too small.
Disposing of Corpses
There are currently four ways to dispose of a corpse: through the dumpsters, through the incinerator, through the wood chipper and through burial. So far, only fake suicide victims can be disposed of through dumpsters. Yandere-chan must cover their body with a garbage bag. To dispose of a corpse through the incinerator, she must dump the body inside and activate it. If any student is killed on the rooftop, she can dump their body from the roof from the east or west sides and bring it to the incinerator.
If the police are called, Yandere-chan has five minutes to dispose of the corpse. Unless she is able to bathe herself in the girls' Shower Room, dispose of her bloody uniform, and dispose of the murder weapon, she will be linked to the murder and arrested by the police. The School Atmosphere will be lowered if she does not dispose of the corpse, or if the death is determined to be a homicide and the killer is not apprehended. If she frames an NPC or rival for the murder and they are apprehended, the School Atmosphere will not be affected.
If Yandere-chan disposes of the corpse without anyone noticing it, the police will not be called, but failure to clean up other incriminating evidence will lead to lower School Atmosphere. Missing posters will also go up as the student is considered missing.
Anybody who sees Yandere-chan dragging or carrying a corpse will immediately assume she murdered the victim. They will react more quickly if the School Atmosphere is low.
Students will act on their personas.
- Main Article: Coward
If a Coward notices Yandere-chan holding a corpse, they will beg for their life before fleeing the school, they won't call the police. If they discover a corpse, they will run out of school and call the police.
- Main Article: Delinquents' Persona
If any delinquent sees Yandere-chan holding a corpse, they will attack her and hit her with a weapon, putting her into a coma, an instant Game Over.
- Main Article: Evil
If an Evil student sees a corpse, they will leave the school and not call the police.
If a Heroic student sees a corpse, they will remain shocked for several seconds before running to Yandere-chan in an attempt to restrain her. If they succeed, she will get the "Apprehended" Game Over.
- Main Article: Loner
If a Loner sees a corpse, they will pause in shock for a few seconds, before running out of the school gates and calling the police.
- Main Article: Teacher's Pet
If a Teacher's Pet sees a corpse, they will pause in shock for several seconds, before running to their teacher to report what they saw.
If a teacher, led by a Teacher's Pet, finds the corpse where the Teacher's Pet saw it, she will call the police and stand guard over it until the police arrive, making it difficult for Yandere-chan to dispose of it. If a teacher sees Yandere-chan dragging a corpse, they will give chase. If Yandere-chan has upgraded her physical education enough, she will be able to fight back.
- Main Article: Senpai
If Senpai sees Yandere-chan dragging a corpse, he will be horrified, resulting in the "Heartbroken" Game Over. If he simply sees a corpse, he will run out of the school gates and call the police, like all other Loners.
- Main Article: Social Butterfly
If a Social Butterfly discovers a corpse, they will run to a crowded area before calling the police.
- The corpses follow a rag doll animation, which will sometimes break and cause the corpses to stretch and glitch while they are being dragged. YandereDev is well aware of this problem and will not respond to any bug reports about them.
- When picking up a corpse, sometimes the body will fail to sync with the player's arms, meaning that the body will continue to float in front of the player as if she was holding them.
- Corpses may glitch through walls.
- Any student who is killed with a ritual knife will emit grey mist.
- In the future, Yandere-chan may be able to report corpses to a teacher, but this will cause the day to end, so the player will miss any important events that take place during the rest of the school day.
- If money is implemented, the protagonist may earn cash from looting corpses.
- In the future, if a teacher discovers a corpse, there may be a PA announcement about their discovery.
