A Game Over is when the player is successfully stopped from ever being with Senpai. There are various types of Game Overs, such as "Heartbroken", "Arrested", "Expelled", "Exposed", "Apprehended", "Senpai Lost", and "??????????"
Yandere-chan will say, "...n...n-no...w-wait..." whenever she triggers an immediate Game Over from Senpai or a teacher.
Game Over Screen
Once a Game Over screen appears, the player has four options:
- Load Checkpoint: Restart the current day, losing all the progress made this day (except allocated Study Points, collectables and unlocked Student Profiles).
- Reset Week: Restart from Monday, losing all the progress made in the current week.
- Main Menu: Go back to the Main Menu.
- SNAP: Unknown, not available yet.
Various situations will initiate the "Heartbroken" Game Over. The "Heartbroken" Game Over ordinarily is directly linked to Senpai openly not finding Yandere-chan desirable, rather than another obstacle preventing Yandere-chan from being with Senpai.
|Situation||Senpai's Dialogue||Yandere-chan's Dialogue|
|Yandere-chan stands near Senpai for too long. After he comments four times on Yandere-chan's behavior, he will act afraid. Wearing a mask will not cause this scenario to appear.||"Hey, cut it out! That's really creepy! Leave me alone!/Um, excuse me! Would you please stop doing that? You're scaring me!"||"I can never face my Senpai again..."|
|Senpai witnesses Yandere-chan murdering someone.||"How could you do that?! Do you realize what you've just done?!/You...you killed them! Stay back! Get away from me!/What have you DONE?! You MONSTER!/Oh my god! You just MURDERED someone!/This can't be happening! Somebody, help! HELP!"||"Now Senpai could never love me..."|
|Senpai witnesses Yandere-chan dragging around a corpse.||"How could you do that?! Do you realize what you've just done?!/You...you killed them! Stay back! Get away from me!/Oh my god! You just MURDERED someone!/This can't be happening! Somebody, help! HELP!"||"Now Senpai could never love me..."|
|Senpai notices Yandere-chan with a suspicious weapon. Bloody weapons that are normally non-suspicious do not trigger Senpai's reaction.||"Why do you have a weapon? What are you going to do with that thing? Stay back!"||"Senpai noticed me...at the worst time..."|
|Senpai notices Yandere-chan laughing loudly/showing signs of low sanity.||"What the hell's wrong with you?! Get away from me!"||"Now he knows what I'm really like..."|
|Senpai notices Yandere-chan while she is covered in blood.||"Why do you have so much blood on you? Did you hurt somebody?!"||"I shouldn't have let him see me like that..."|
|Senpai witnesses Yandere-chan taking panty shots.||"What the hell are you doing? That's horrible! Stop that right now!"||"There's no way he could ever forgive me for that..."|
- Main Article: Rivals
When a rival successfully confesses to Senpai on Friday under the Confession Tree, he will be so moved by her love confession that he will happily accept. This will happen at the end of every Friday of the debug builds regardless of the player's actions.
- Main Article: Reputation
In the future, if Yandere-chan's reputation drops below -100, Senpai will reject her love confession, resulting in a Game Over. If she goes to class with a reputation below -100, then she will receive a short cutscene of students laughing at her, followed by an instant Game Over.
If a student grabs Yandere-chan, a struggle mini-game will begin. To get out of it, the player must press the Q, E, R, or F keys in a semi-rapid session to get the icon all the way to the right side of the bar. Should the player fail, the student will pin Yandere-chan to the ground with Yandere-chan groaning, "Ugh! No!" and result in an "Apprehended" Game Over.
If the player has no self-defense, no struggle mini-game will initiate if a teacher catches the player; instead, an "Apprehended" Game Over will occur with the teacher pinning the player down immediately without giving a chance to fight back. When the player has a high enough self-defense stat, they will enter a struggle mini-game with the teacher, rather than being immediately apprehended.
If a delinquent sees Yandere-chan committing murder or dragging a corpse, they will enter a combat mini-game and will refuse to stop fighting until they have knocked her into a coma or until she kills them.
If Yandere-chan kills a student around four and above other students, she will be apprehended.
|Yandere-chan tries to attack a teacher with a large weapon or with low self-defense.||"Just what do you think you're doing?!"|
|Yandere-chan kills someone, drags a corpse, or carries a corpse in front of a teacher.||"What have you done?"/"How could you?"/"Stop right now!"|
|Yandere-chan appears bloody or carries a weapon in front of a teacher guarding a corpse.||"That blood/weapon...so it was you!"|
|Yandere-chan shows up at the scene of the crime insane near a teacher guarding a corpse.||"There's no doubt... It was you!"|
|Yandere-chan kills someone, drags a corpse, or carries a corpse in front of a heroic student.||"You won't get away with this!"|
|Yandere-chan kills someone or drags a corpse in front of a delinquent.||"You psychopath! You won't get away with this!'"/"What have you done?! You lunatic!"|
The "Expelled" Game Over is linked to those with the Strict and Dangerous persona.
The information below is about the various circumstances in which the player can successfully instigate an "Expelled" Game Over in Yandere Simulator.
|Situation||Faculty/Student Council Dialogue|
|Yandere-chan is punished for the sixth time or threatens the guidance counselor||That's it! I've had enough! I've spoken to the Headmaster about you, and he's given me permission to expel you from Akademi at my discretion. Under his authority, you are hereby expelled from this institution! Get out of my sight!|
|A Student Council member witnesses Yandere-chan murder someone.||"Stop you villain!" "On the ground!" "Sorry." "Cease and desist!"|
|Yandere-chan walks too close to a Student Council member five times.||"Stop you villain!" "On the ground!" "Sorry." "Cease and desist!"|
|Yandere-chan tries to kill a Student Council member without stealth.||"Stop you villain!" "On the ground!" "Sorry." "Cease and desist!"|
If Yandere-chan kills an NPC in front of a student with the Phone Addict persona, or a student with their phone out, they will take a picture and send it to the police, providing evidence against her and leading to an instant "Exposed" Game Over. Similarly, if she kills an NPC in front of a student with the Lovestruck persona, they will tell Senpai that Yandere-chan committed the murder, leading to the "Exposed" Game Over.
- Main Article: Police
If Yandere-chan hasn't cleaned up a murder scene and the police are called, she will get arrested for murder. To prevent this, Yandere-chan must:
- Get rid of the body by using the incinerator or the wood chipper.
- Mop up all the blood.
- Get a clean uniform and dispose of the old one. Currently, there are no penalties for being naked but clean.
- Get rid of the weapon by using the incinerator.
- Retain high sanity by the time the police come.
- Dispose of gloves used.
- Dispose of masks used.
However, if Yandere-chan disposes the bloody uniform, gloves, weapon, and has her composure but still leaves the corpses and/or blood around, then she won't get caught, because the police can't trace the murder to Yandere-chan.
Different Types of "Arrested" Game Overs
|The police timer runs out as Yandere-chan is murdering someone.||Yandere-chan will get arrested on the spot and the trial will find her guilty. Note: This would only happen in older builds.|
|The police timer runs out, all evidence but the gloves has been disposed of.||The police cannot find a weapon or corpse, but the police can trace the gloves back to Yandere-chan, and she will be arrested.|
|The police timer runs out, a corpse is found, the weapon has been disposed of, but the gloves have not been disposed of.||The gloves are traced back to Yandere-chan and she will be arrested.|
|The police timer runs out, Yandere-chan has no sanity, but all other evidence is disposed of.||The police question Yandere-chan and take her into custody due to her behavior. She will eventually admit everything and remain in custody.|
|The police timer runs out, a corpse is found, Yandere-chan still has her bloody uniform, but her murder weapon has been disposed of.||Since Yandere-chan is covered in blood, the police will arrest her.|
|The police timer runs out, a corpse is found, the murder weapon has not been disposed of, but Yandere-chan's bloody uniform has been disposed of||Everyone is forced to give their biological report, which the police will use to trace the murder weapon to Yandere-chan and arrest her.|
|The police timer runs out, a corpse is found; Yandere-chan has low sanity, is covered in blood, and still has her weapon.||Since it's very obvious who committed the crime, the police will immediately arrest Yandere-chan.|
|Yandere-chan was caught by the security cameras.|
If Yandere-chan threatens Kocho Shuyona, he will use his taser on her and she will fall unconscious. She will not be given the SNAP option.
|Kocho uses his taser if:|
|Yandere-chan stands too close to him for 60 seconds.|
|Yandere-chan threatens and backs off him ten times.|
|Yandere-chan brings a corpse into his office.|
|Yandere-chan brings a weapon into his office.|
Being a Delinquent
In the future, if Yandere-chan is part of the delinquents' gang and is sent to the Counselor's Office, Yandere-chan may get an automatic Game Over.
If half the school is massacred, the headmaster will be forced to close down the school. He would never do it normally, but in extreme cases like this, he must and it would lead to a Game Over. This may happen if a large number of teachers die as well. This has not been implemented yet.
Caught By A Sleuth
- Main Article: Sleuth
When School Atmosphere is low, students with the sleuth persona will always be on the lookout, trying to catch the criminal. If they take a picture of Yandere-chan committing murder, they will send it to the police and it will be an instant Game Over. The Photography Club will possibly take on this trait when the atmosphere is low. This has not been implemented yet.
- Main Article: Mission Mode
If Yandere-chan gets a Game Over in this mode, she will fail her mission and the player will be required to start over again. There are many unique Game Overs in Mission Mode.
If Yandere-chan fails any of her mission objectives, such as killing a student who is not the target, she will fail the mission and receive a Game Over.
- Main Article: Nemesis
Nemesis will continuously stalk Yandere-chan and if she catches Yandere-chan, she'll kill her, resulting in a Game Over.
Metal Detectors And Security Cameras.
If Yandere-chan acts suspiciously in front of a security camera or holds a weapon while passing through a metal detector, she'll receive a Game Over.
The awareness meter works exactly like the reputation meter. If Yandere-chan is caught doing too many suspicious things, her awareness meter will reach 100 and she'll receive a Game Over for blowing her cover.

Removed Game Overs
If Yandere-chan attacked a delinquent, held a weapon near them for too long, killed a student in front of them, or dragged a body in front of them, they would hit her across the head with their weapon, causing her to fall into a coma. Unlike other Game Over screens, the player would not receive the SNAP option at the "Comatose" Game Over screen.
- The player can still change Yandere-chan's hairstyle in the Game Over screen by pressing H.
- Certain actions by the player will allow them to continue playing even after receiving a game over.
- Yandere-chan will never die in the main game, but losing Senpai's love in a Game Over is essentially "death" to her.
