Reputation is a key element in Yandere Simulator that determines what types of interactions Yandere-chan can have with other students.

The reputation meter can currently be found on the bottom-left of the HUD. YandereDev plans to add in more to the feature, such as having students let their guard down around Yandere-chan when her reputation is high, while being nervous around her when it is low.[1] Currently, reputation will increase/decrease during gossiping periods (depending on Yandere-chan's previous actions around the other students).

Students will have three gossiping periods each day:

  • Before morning classes
  • During lunch time
  • After they go home (while using social media)

The heart icon that hovers over Yandere-chan's reputation meter shows where her reputation will be after the next gossiping period. The bar inside the reputation meter shows where her reputation currently is. A student that has witnessed her do something that will affect her reputation won't be able to tell all of their friends immediately; this is why her reputation won't change until after a gossiping period.[2]

Each student has a reputation meter as well, though it is always set at 0 by default. If Yandere-chan takes a picture of a student with her phone and sends it to Info-chan, the student profile will display their reputation. The player can also look at their reputation by checking out their Student Info. As of the October 8th, 2015 Build, Yandere-chan can lower other students' reputations by gossiping about them.

The phone will not be available in 1980s Mode,[3] so it is unknown how gossip will work in that mode.

Neutral Reputation

1-15-2016ReputationNormal

January 15th, 2016.

Yandere-chan will start the game with a neutral reputation, as it is the beginning of school. She will have no buffs by having a neutral reputation. Students will be friendly but typically will not do favors for her, and she will be ignored for the most part.

Good Reputation

Having a good reputation boosts the effect of Yandere-chan's gossip, but her reputation will fall by more if she is seen doing suspicious actions.

1-15-2016ReputationGood

January 15th, 2016.

YandereDev has considered the idea that if Yandere-chan has a very good reputation, then people will pay attention to her, follow her around, or try to be her best friend.[4] This may be a disadvantage though, because if she's popular enough, she'll attract stalkers. Since they'll constantly follow her, Yandere-chan wouldn't be able to get away with crimes.[5]

In previous builds, Yandere-chan needed a high reputation for students to follow her. As of the October 8th, 2015 Build, she needs to be friends with a student for them to follow her, without reputation being a factor. After the November 1st, 2015 Build, Seduction gave similar benefits through different methods.

There is a possibility that, in later builds, if School Atmosphere is low, having a high reputation would be required for students to follow Yandere-chan.[6]

Bad Reputation

A bad reputation results from students seeing Yandere-chan doing too many suspicious things. She will receive a lower reputation penalty for her actions when she has a bad reputation.

1-15-2016ReputationBad

January 15th, 2016.

Students will not offer Yandere-chan tasks if her reputation is bad, which will make it harder for her to befriend other students. Some elimination methods may also not be available, as they require a good reputation.

If reputation points are lost, Yandere-chan can get half of them back by apologizing. Wearing the Kawaii Moe Shimapan Panties will give her 75% of points back when apologizing. Reputation penalties are harsher when the School Atmosphere is low. Senpai cannot accept Yandere-chan's love confession if her reputation is below -100, leading to an automatic Game Over.[7]

As of the October 15th, 2017 Build, if Yandere-chan's reputation drops below -100 and she attempts to go to class, she will get a Game Over.

In the future, it's possible that delinquents will not talk to Yandere-chan if she has a neutral or high reputation. If she has a low reputation, they will see her as one of them, thus giving her the ability to talk to them. She might be able to befriend them and ask them to do favors, which may unlock new ways to dispose of rivals.[8]

Rival Reputation

Main Article: Rivals

Rivals also have a reputation meter. If a rival's reputation level drops to -100, Senpai will not accept her love confession and she will be eliminated.[9] If it reaches -150, the rival will commit suicide, but the animations for it have not yet been added.[10][11]

Mida and Muja will not have a reputation stat but will instead have a 'job performance' stat which will be lowered in a way other than gossip.[12]

Gaining Reputation

Yandere-chan will be able to increase her reputation, depending on her interactions with fellow students. However, a gossiping period must pass before her reputation bar will move.

  • Complimenting Students

This will increase reputation by one point per student complimented. If Yandere-chan's Seduction level is at 2, complimenting male students (Level 5 for female students) will increase her reputation by two points. Wearing the Sweet Strawberry Panties increases the reputation points she gains when complimenting students to two points, or three points if the panties and Seduction are combined. If the student being complimented is Yandere-chan's friend, she will gain another two points. She can earn several dozens of points each day, depending on her skills.

  • Making Food

If Yandere-chan is in the Cooking Club, she is able to make food and pass it out to students. There are nine octopus hotdogs on the plate, which nine students can eat. Passing one to a student will raise her reputation by 5 points per hotdog (six if her reputation is low), raising Yandere-chan's reputation 45 points per tray.

PassFood

Giving food to a student.

  • Internet

It may be possible to say positive things about students on the Internet to increase Yandere-chan's reputation. YandereDev is currently considering this idea.[13]

Losing Reputation

NOTE: Wearing a mask will not affect Yandere-chan's reputation when doing suspicious actions. Students that catch Yandere-chan in the following states (with the exception of Senpai, who will give Yandere-chan the "Heartbroken" Game Over) will damage her reputation after a gossiping period has passed.

  • Gossiping About a Student:

Decreases reputation by five points. If Seduction is at level 3, gossiping to a male student decreases reputation by two points. If Seduction is at level 5, gossiping to a female student decreases reputation by two points.

  • Visibly Armed

Decreases reputation by ten points if School Atmosphere is high, fifteen points if School Atmosphere is medium, and twenty points if School Atmosphere is low.

If Yandere-chan has acquired Seduction level 3, it will decrease her reputation by eight points if School Atmosphere is high, thirteen points if School Atmosphere is medium, and eighteen points if School Atmosphere is low. This changes when Seduction is raised even higher.

Decreases reputation by ten points if School Atmosphere is high, fifteen points if School Atmosphere is medium, and twenty points if School Atmosphere is low.

If Yandere-chan has acquired Seduction level 3, it will decrease her reputation by eight points if School Atmosphere is high, thirteen points if School Atmosphere is medium, eighteen points if School Atmosphere is low, and a male student is the witness. When Seduction is at Level 5, the same applies to female students.

  • Laughing Insanely:

Decreases reputation by ten points if School Atmosphere is high, fifteen points if School Atmosphere is medium, and twenty points when School Atmosphere is low.

If Yandere-chan's Seduction level is Rank 3, it will decrease her reputation by eight points if School Atmosphere is high, thirteen points if School Atmosphere is medium, and eighteen points if School Atmosphere is low, and a male student is the witness. When Seduction is at Level 5, the same applies to female students.

  • Covered in Blood:

Decreases reputation by ten points if School Atmosphere is high, fifteen points if School Atmosphere is medium, and twenty points if School Atmosphere is low. Yandere-chan's reputation will not be affected while in the Art Club, because students will think that she is covered in paint instead of blood.

If Yandere-chan's Seduction level is Rank 3, it will decrease her reputation by eight points if School Atmosphere is high, thirteen points if School Atmosphere is medium, and eighteen points if School Atmosphere is low, and a male student is the witness. When Seduction is at Level 5, the same applies to female students.

Decreases reputation by ten points, regardless of School Atmosphere.

  • Taking Nude Photographs:

Decreases Yandere-chan's reputation by an unknown amount. YandereDev would like to implement this idea. Taking nude photographs would tank her reputation, however.[14]

If Yandere-chan is caught pickpocketing an NPC, her reputation will drop by ten points.

  • Leaving Witnesses Alive:

If anyone sees Yandere-chan commit murder, her reputation will drop by ten points every subsequent day that witness is alive. They will refuse to speak to Yandere-chan and gossip about her every day. Killing them is the only way to salvage reputation, as that will return her reputation to its previous amount. However, Cowards and Evil students will not damage her reputation.

In the planned 1980s Mode, it is possible that a witness to murder will instead trigger an immediate Game Over, though this is unlikely.[15]

  • Skipping School

If Yandere-chan skips school due to torturing students for twelve or eighteen hours, students will think of her as a delinquent. When torturing someone for twelve or eighteen hours, her reputation will drop by twenty points.

Trivia

Reputation

The original reputation bar.

  • The original reputation bar was located on the top left corner, slightly skewed.
  • The player can change the reputation of others by going to their Student Profile and pressing the + or - keys to raise or lower reputation points. If a student's reputation is lowered enough, they will not come to school the next day.
  • In older builds, the player had an option to threaten students, which would cause Yandere-chan's reputation to be damaged, but cause the student to leave.[16]
  • Befriending a rival may supply Yandere-chan with a permanent reputation gain of +1, per befriended rival.[17]
  • In Mission Mode, the reputation meter is replaced with the awareness meter, which measures how aware the students are that Yandere-chan is suspicious.
