— The additional info in Info-chan's Student Profile.
InfoWarn

Info-chan is a main character in Yandere Simulator who currently attends Akademi High School. She is Yandere-chan's main source of help and information, performing several tasks such as introducing rivals to Yandere-chan. She also provides Yandere-chan with items and scheme walkthroughs in exchange for panty shots.[4] Info-chan was originally going to be the main antagonist of Story Mode and would have ended up being Yandere-chan's final rival, but this idea was discontinued.[5] According to YandereDev, explaining why this change was made would be a spoiler.[6] As of now, her motivations and ultimate goals are currently unknown; they are stated to be a plot twist that will be important to the game's story in the future.[7]

In the full game, Yandere-chan will not be able to interact with her outside of text messages,[8] unlike a regular student.[9] It is possible that the player may catch glimpses of Info-chan in the future.[10] According to YandereDev, Info-chan's real name is not important enough to be released, and her name does not have any role or importance to the game, so it will most likely stay a mystery.[11]

Intros

Main Article: Intros
YanChanVSInfoChan

"A 1v1 blade fight on the rooftop in the rain during a thunderstorm? No, way too corny to consider..."[12]

First Intro

In this intro, she gets Yandere-chan to meet her in person in a classroom, where she states that she is president of the school's Newspaper Club and needs interesting things to happen at Akademi High School, like mass murders, so that she can write more attention-grabbing articles for the school's currently failing student newspaper. She encourages a somewhat reluctant Yandere-chan to stir up some violent trouble and to take panty shots.

Second Intro

In this intro, Info-chan contacts Yandere-chan in a text message, telling her she's seen her stalking her Senpai, and proposes her help. She doesn't reveal too much about herself, and she does not give a clear reason for helping Yandere-chan out. She just tells Yandere-chan that she would be happy if something bad happened to Osana Najimi, a girl who made an appearance in the first intro as Senpai's tsundere childhood friend and is the first rival of the game. Info-chan wants Yandere-chan to make Osana suffer, though her reasons for this are not stated. In contrast to the first intro, where Yandere-chan shows great reluctance to committing violent and sadistic deeds, Yandere-chan's morals are twisted enough by her obsessive love for Senpai that it is easy for Info-chan to persuade her to eliminate her first rival.

Appearance

Info Chan look

Yandere-chan as an Info-chan lookalike.

In the first opening of the game, Info-chan wore the default female school uniform. She had short red hair, red eyes and red glasses. Her skin was slightly tanned. She had a mischievous expression on her face with half-closed eyes and a teeth-baring grin. The original plan was for Info-chan to have the Honoka Futaba model, but since she has her own unique hairstyle, the model was not used.

As of the October 8th, 2015 Build, Info-chan's appearance has changed. Her hair is now longer and spikier, with an ahoge on top. If the player tries to look at her Student Profile, they are able to see her red glasses and hair, but everything else is a black silhouette. There are Easter Eggs and in-game customization options that can give Yandere-chan Info-chan's glasses and hairstyle.

As of the March 15th, 2016 Build, the player can see Info-chan in person by peeking through the curtain of the Info Club room. She wears the default female school uniform, regardless of customization.

Description

"'Info-chan' is the nickname given to an information broker who specializes in collecting and selling dark secrets.

Nobody knows her real name. Nobody knows what her face looks like. Nobody knows how she gathers her information. Nobody knows how she has gained such a dangerous amount of power and influence over such a short span of time. Some people don't even believe she really exists.

What people DO know is that, if you want a favor from her, all you need to do is text her a photograph of a girl's panties...and if she wants a favor from YOU, you'd better do exactly as she asks...or else."[13]

Personality

In the current game, not much is known about Info-chan so far, except that she has a bad reputation for selling dark secrets and panty shots, and wants Osana to suffer. It can be inferred that she is a mischievous character, and given her willingness to incite murder, voyeurism, gossip, and bullying, and her apparent indifference to the effects of her actions on others, she likely has low moral standards. She has the persona of "Evil," which would mean, as an NPC, she would encourage crime.

In both intros, Info-chan is shown to be uncaring towards other people. She doesn't feel guilt or remorse when harming others for her own personal gain.[14] She also tends to be very persistent in her goals. Info-chan is extremely intelligent and resourceful, being able to probably learn anything if she really wanted.[15] She also is very crafty and hard-working, gathering information through unknown ways on her computer all day long.

In the first intro, Info-chan seems outwardly confident and very curious, as finding out secrets about other students is a hobby of hers, not just a job. She's very ambitious, as she wants her newspaper to become popular badly enough that she goes to the trouble of asking Yandere-chan to stir up turmoil. Info-chan seemed dedicated to her work and apparently poured her heart and soul into running the school newspaper. Her desire that Yandere-chan not kill off the entire school wasn't out of sympathy or humanity, but due to the fact that the newspaper would die if no one was alive to read it.

In the second intro, she specifically wants Osana to get hurt in some awful way, but the reason for it is currently unknown. She's willing to set Yandere-chan, an obsessed sociopath, against a rival who has a crush on Senpai.

Club

Main Article: Clubs

Info-chan used to be a part of the Newspaper Club in the first intro, but YandereDev later discarded this idea (and the club as well). She is now the one and only member of the Info Club and sits in a dark room working on her computer all day long. That club is exempt from school rules, and the reason for that will be explained in a cassette tape.[16]

Panty Shot Favors

Main Article: Panty Shots
2-17-16PantyShotFavorMenu

The Panty Shot Favor Menu. February 17th, 2016.

In the original intro, Info-chan claims that she only takes payment in the form of panty shots. She wants panty shots, as the boys (and some of the girls) will pay her for them; it's her currency. In the second intro, when Yandere-chan describes her as a girl who "...blackmails girls and sells panty shots to boys," Info-chan says that the rumors are true and tells Yandere-chan that in exchange for her assistance in yandere activities, Yandere-chan can always text Info-chan a panty shot.

If Yandere-chan takes pictures of girls' panties with her phone, she will have the option to send them to Info-chan. Panty shots can be used to acquire Panty Shot Favors.

Currently, Info-chan will only accept one panty shot per student, and if Yandere-chan sends her a repetitive panty shot, Info-chan will decline the photo. In the future, it's possible that Yandere-chan will be able to take another panty shot of a girl if the girl in question is wearing different panties.[17]

Dirtysecret

Info-chan providing Yandere-chan with footage of Kokona's dark secret.

Note: While panty shots can be sent to Info-chan, most of the favors that Yandere-chan can access with these panty shots are not yet implemented.

To access the favor menu, the player must enter the pause menu (accessed through the enter key) and select "Favors".

The only favor that the player can currently use is the "Provide Dark Secret" favor. This can be used to get juicy gossip and rumors about rivals.

Some favors cost more than others. Each panty shot gives one credit towards unlocking favors. They range from damaging a rival's reputation, improving Yandere-chan's reputation, providing blackmail against another student, sending a student home, delaying the police, providing a spare uniform, providing blackmail against a rival, or even providing weapons to Yandere-chan.

Schemes

Main Article: Schemes

As of the April 1st, 2016 Build, the player can give panty shots to Info-chan in order for certain elimination methods to be more easily accessible. The only ones available as of May 1st, 2016 are Expose Dirty Secret, Frame For Theft, Frame For Smoking, Frame For Panty Shots, and Frame For Cheating. Successfully completing all of these schemes will get the current rival expelled.

Drops

Main Article: Drops
FavorsMainMenu

Drops on the "Favors" menu. May 1st, 2016.

As of the April 1st, 2016 Build, the player can give panty shots to Info-chan order to obtain specific items, used for various things, such as eliminating rivals. Info-chan drops the items from the Info Club room window. Currently, only a few items are available.

Student Information

Ssaw

September 22nd, 2016.

If Yandere-chan sends Info-chan a picture of another person in the school, Info-chan will give her information about them - what their name is, what club they're in, their persona, who their crushes are, their self-defense, and any additional information.

This can be useful for several different things - determining if they like Senpai, knowing how they'll react to murder, and making sure to not be seen by them while holding their club-specific items. Info-chan will not recognize certain NPCs as they do not have a complete AI.

As of the September 18th, 2015 Build, if Yandere-chan tries to look for Info-chan's information, her phone will show static and Info-chan will tell her to not bother looking her up. Because of this, it is unknown what her crush, and club are.

Relationships

Yandere-chan

Main Article: Yandere-chan

Info-chan and Yandere-chan seem to be allies, though Yandere-chan never has to kill anybody to boost her newspaper in the first opening, make Osana suffer in the second opening, or take panty shots in both intros. In fact, Yandere-chan can indeed ignore Info-chan.

Yandere-chan and Info-chan have a purely client/provider relationship [18][19] In the second intro, Info-chan sees Yandere-chan as just a stalker who could help her get rid of Osana, while Yandere-chan thinks that Info-chan is disgusting. In both intros, it seems that one of them might see their reasons for doing what they're doing as justified, while the other person is just insane. Either way, they'll still probably end up helping each other in the end. Info-chan's attitude towards or beliefs about Yandere-chan may be affected by the player's actions [20] It is also possible for Yandere-chan to use Info-chan for basic info on students and to identify rivals without ever giving her any panty shots, meaning that Info-chan may be simply used by Yandere-chan without anything in return, except maybe making Osana suffer.

It would be a spoiler to say what would happen if all rivals were eliminated non-lethally and the player never helped out Info-chan by taking panty shots.[21] Yanderedev wants it to influence some events near the end of the story.[22] YandereDev has also not revealed if Yandere-chan will officially meet Info-chan in real life in the future. Apparently, it will be a plot twist.[23]

Osana Najimi

Main Article: Osana Najimi

Info-chan doesn't really like or dislike Osana Najimi in the first intro. Info-chan just wanted more publicity for her newspaper, which just happened to involve Yandere-chan getting rid of Osana Najimi. In the second intro, Info-chan specifically has something against Osana. It's not stated why, but Info-chan wishes for Osana to suffer.

Info-chan will wish for Osana to suffer in the final game.[24]

Senpai

Main Article: Senpai

Info-chan does not care about Senpai's love life. She does know what's up with it, however; she knows who has a crush on him and rivals Yandere-chan for his affection.

She was originally planned to be the final rival, and would have just used Yandere-chan to get rid of her other rivals so she'd be that much closer to having him all for herself, but this idea was discontinued.[5]

Midori Gurin

Main Article: Midori Gurin

Info-chan dislikes Midori. She cannot tolerate the inquisitive girl for more than a few seconds.[25]

Students

Main Article: Students

The alias "Info-chan" is extremely notorious around the school, and the whole school knows what Info-chan does, so her reputation is set at -999. Info-chan's true identity, however, has a neutral reputation. No one knows who she really is.[26]

Info-chan doesn't seem to care for the students' well-being. For both intros, panty shots, blackmail, and other invasions of privacy mean nothing to her. Info-chan does not seem to care if Yandere-chan kills her rivals. Info-chan is said to still help her out by sometimes introducing a rival to her. Sending pictures of corpses to Info-chan also doesn't faze her in the slightest.

Criminals

Info-chan has criminal contacts[27] but her exact relationship with them is unknown.

Trivia

  • Formerly, Info-chan was called Sidekick-chan.[28]
  • YandereDev loves programming Info-chan and what will be in store for her.[29]
  • Info-chan will sometimes introduce a rival in a conversation. [30]
  • If Info-chan was in Hogwarts, she would be a Ravenclaw. [31]
  • She may keep a personal diary.[32]
  • When pressing the H button, one of the hairstyles will be Info-chan's. It will be red.
  • When YandereDev previously stated that Info-chan would not be seen at school, he considered her appearing in places that Yandere-chan couldn't access in the future like G-Man from the Half-Life series.[33]
  • Info-chan has many criminal contacts and many ways to obtain illegal things, but guns are the only thing she can't obtain.[27]
  • As of January 14th, 2016, YandereDev's current plan does not include a rival that Info-chan will not help kill or torture.[34]
  • Druelbozo jokingly stated that Info-chan's real name is "Gary" in one of his streams at 00:58:00.[35]
  • Info-chan will most likely be the only character who is only known by aliases, keeping their true identity a secret.[36]
  • Info-chan is more of a 'gameplay mechanic' rather than a character, so murdering her would be like removing the run button in a game.[37] Kidnapping Info-chan will not be an option either.[38]
  • As of the November 16th, 2016 Build, Info-chan no longer appears in the Student Info menu.
  • YandereDev thinks she's near sighted.[24]
