|Age|| 31 (1989)|
He is the reason behind some of Akademi High School's strange rules. According to Mysterious Tape #2, he is rumored to be bribing the police and media to stay away from the school for unspecified reasons.
He has a secret personality, backstory, and role in the gameplay. He will not factor into gameplay, but he plays a large role in the game's backstory and lore. He works in the Headmaster's Office.
Kocho has short, dark brown hair and glasses. He wears a light blue shirt with a red tie under a green vest. He has light brown pants and dark brown shoes.
In the 1980s, he wore a green jacket and held a blue file.
"Kocho Shuyona is the headmaster of Yandere-chan's school. He is 59 years old, and he has held the same position since 1985, when the prestigious school first opened its doors.
At the beginning of his career, he was a cheerful, optimistic, energetic young man who was full of hope for the future. However, over the course of his long tenure, his demeanor has changed drastically. He has become a cynical, pessimistic, world-weary old man who seems to have completely lost his faith in the world - especially its youth.
What happened over the course of the past few decades to change this man in such drastic ways? What regrets does he live with? What kind of decisions will he make now, at the end of his career, now that he has so little to lose?"
According to his profile, he is extremely reclusive and avoids leaving his office or addressing the student body in person.
He is a very stubborn person who does not want to admit that he has lost control of the situation at school. However, under extreme circumstances (for example, if an entire class dies) he might allow the school to shut down.
In Story Mode, he is close to retirement; he is world-weary, pessimistic, and cynical. In 1980s Mode, he is eager to begin work as the headmaster; he is energetic, optimistic, and cheerful.
Kocho sits in his chair working on his Saikou computer every day. He'll leave his office at lunchtime.
If Yandere-chan enters the office, he will be shocked and if she comes closer he will stand up and point a taser at her, if she stands too close to him for 60 seconds, depletes his patience, or has a corpse or weapon, he will electrocute her, resulting in a Game Over.
- He was implemented in the October 1st, 2017 Build.
- It is currently impossible to kill him as he is unaffected by any Easter Eggs.
- If all teachers are killed, Kocho will walk around and discover their corpses.
- In the future, Yandere-chan will be able to take a picture of rivals breaking school rules and report them to The Headmaster or Genka Kunahito to get them expelled.
- Kocho will have his own cassette tapes. They will reveal some insight into Info-chan's classroom's location, and why there is a katana on school grounds.
- Kocho hasn't touched the katana's handle since 1988.
- Kochou "古長" can be translated as "old leader". Kouchou, with other kanjis "校長", means headmaster. Shuyou "主要" means main, major.
|“|| Ahh...! It's...it's you!|
No, that would be impossible...you must be...her daughter...
I'll tolerate you in my school, but not in my office.
Leave at once.
There is nothing for you to achieve here. Just. Get. Out.
— Kocho if Yandere-chan enters his office.
|“|| What...in...blazes are you doing?|
Are you trying to re-enact something you saw in a video game?
Ugh, do you really think such a stupid ploy is going to work?
I know who you are. It's obvious. You're not fooling anyone.
I don't have time for this tomfoolery. Leave at once!
— Kocho if Yandere-chan enters his office wearing a mask or cardboard box.
|“|| Not another step!|
You're up to no good!, I know it!
I'm not going to let you harm me!
I'll use self-defense if I deem it necessary!
— Kocho if Yandere-chan gets too close.
|“||Hmm...a wise decision.||”|
— Kocho if Yandere-chan leaves his office after being threatened.
|“||You asked for it!||”|
— Kocho before tasing Yandere-chan.
|“||Enough of this nonsense!||”|
— Kocho if Yandere-chan gets too close to Kocho ten times in a row.
— Kocho if Yandere-chan brings a corpse into his office.
|“||How dare you raise a weapon in my office!||”|
— Kocho if Yandere-chan brings a weapon into his office.
|“||Mr Saikou...the deal is off.||”|
