Kuudere-chan is the protagonist of Kuudere Simulator, Kuudere Simulator 2, Kuudere Simulator 3, and a female student that currently attends Akademi High School. Her real name is Kuu Dere. She is the fourth student to be introduced as an Easter Egg.

She appears in the Kuudere Simulator spin-off games and in the "I Want My Senpai Back" video.[1] Her name was stated as Kuudere-chan in the description.

In the Kuudere Simulator games, she sits on a wooden chair in the middle of an empty room and does not move. The player can scroll the mouse around to get a better view of her.

As of the November 15th, 2015 Build, Kuudere-chan was added into Yandere Simulator as a student with the name Kuu Dere.


Kuu has short sky blue hair and red eyes. She wears the default female school uniform in both Yandere Simulator and Kuudere Simulator. She wears knee high white socks and has the same skin tone as Yandere-chan. Her bust size is 1.

As of the March 31st, 2018 Build, the edges of her hair are much more defined with dark blue.

As of the April 26th, 2018 Build, Kuu's hair is no longer outlined by darker lines, and is colored dark aqua.

In Yandere Simulator, her uniform can be customized by the player. Her hair has also changed style and is derived from Honoka Futaba, a character that can be bought in the Unity3D Asset Store.[2]

In Kuudere Simulator, her hair is more oval-shaped and is longer.



Kuu hiding her face.

She is a kuudere. A kuudere is a common personality trope in anime that displays cold-hearted and inexpressive behavior, as they have difficulty recognizing their feelings (Kuu). They only occasionally show their hidden caring and nice side (Dere).

She has never been witnessed exhibiting emotions, according to her Student Profile.

Among the personas currently implemented in the game, Kuu is a loner. If she sees a corpse or witnesses a murder, she will run home and call the police. She cannot participate in physical fights against murderers. Due to her having the Loner persona, if the player aims their phone at her, she will hide her face.

It's possible that, in the future, she will have a unique reaction to murder. This, however, is programming a special case that applies to only to her and Robot-chan, and will be difficult from the programming side.[3] This persona may be called "Apathetic".[4]



Kuu reading a book at the table on the left side of the library. March 31st, 2018.

At 7:05 AM, Kuu enters the school grounds. She walks to her locker at 7:10 AM and changes from her outdoor shoes to her indoor shoes. As of the July 18th, 2017 Build, Kuu will walk to the library at 7:15 AM. She will then sit at the table on the left side and read a book.

At 8:00 AM, Kuu walks into Classroom 3-2 and sits at her desk. She starts her morning classes at 8:30 AM, and leaves to go to the library at 1:00 PM.

Kuu walks to class again at 1:30 PM and and participates in cleaning time between 3:30 PM and 4:00 PM. Afterwards, she heads to her locker and changes from her indoor shoes to her outdoor shoes, then she lingers there until 3:50 PM, when she walks home.


  • There was once a bug in the January 15th, 2016 Build where Kuu Dere had Mai Waifu's profile. This was later fixed in the February 1st, 2016 Build.
  • YandereDev likes the idea of her repeating her quotes from Kuudere Simulator; however, this would require a lot of "special case" code.[5]
  • She was implemented into Yandere Simulator in the November 15th, 2015 Build.
  • Pressing E while playing Kuudere Simulator will give her an eyepatch. Pressing T will turn her into Tsundere-chan. Pressing H in Kuudere Simulator 2 will turn her into Himedere-chan.
  • All of her dialogue in Kuudere Simulator, Kuudere Simulator 2, and Kuudere Simulator 3 appears as blue text.
  • In older builds, her Student Profile used to say that she had not been witnessed exhibiting emotions, however she would show fear when she witnessed murder.
  • In her cameo in "I Want My Senpai Back", she has brown eyes instead of red.
  • Kuudere-chan's appearance is a reference to Rei Ayanami from the popular anime Neon Genesis Evangelion.[6]
  • Kuu makes a small cameo in the gaming club by appearing on the dating simulator game screen.
  • The reason why she was moved to another spot on the rooftop is because during lunchtime, the Basu sisters both eat their lunch.
  • As of the July 18th, 2017 Build, Kuu is the school librarian.
  • If YandereDev decides to have student nicknames, then her real name would not be Kuu Dere and this would instead be a nickname given to her, due to her emotionless and apathetic nature. He suggested "Aika Miyamoto" as a hypothetical name for her.[7]
