Suitors are a type of NPC in Yandere Simulator. They are used in matchmaking to eliminate rivals peacefully. They have not been fully implemented yet.


Identifying the suitors should be challenging,[1] but their appearance will also be unique in some way.[2]


Main Article: Matchmaking

In the game, each rival will have a single crush[3] other than Senpai. The player will be able to eliminate a rival by pairing them up with their suitor.[4] If the suitor is murdered before the player can matchmake them, the player cannot pair them up and must use another method to keep them away from Senpai.

There will always be a reason why the rival will develop a crush on a suitor. Sometimes the reason will be as simple as having similar interests.[5]

In order to matchmake the suitor and the rival, the player must perform a task for both of them to befriend them. When the suitor is befriended, this unlocks a "Love" option in the interaction wheel. Selecting this option allows Yandere-chan to name the suitor's crush. If she names his crush correctly, the suitor will then ask her for advice on how to win the rival's heart. This unlocks the matchmaking menu.

To make the suitor interact with the rival, Yandere-chan needs to purchase a wireless headset and earpiece from the Drops menu for one panty shot, to give advice to the suitor while he is interacting with the rival. Then, Yandere-chan needs to use the Court option to tell the rival that someone wants to meet her at the east fountain. Yandere-chan also must tell the suitor that the rival is waiting for him at the fountain and that she will guide him using the wireless headset. Once both the rival and the suitor are at the east fountain, Yandere-chan has to hide behind a nearby tree and give the suitor advice while he talks to his crush.

If Yandere-chan manages to figure out what features the rival is attracted to, she can advise the suitor to change his appearance based on what the rival is attracted to. This increases the multiplier boost during the matchmaking interaction.


Changing a suitor's appearance.

Yandere-chan must 'train' the suitor to acquire non-physical traits that the rival finds attractive. If a rival is attracted to intelligence, then Yandere-chan must study with the suitor, increasing his wisdom, which he can then use to impress the rival.


Increasing intelligence.

Yandere-chan can also locate something on school grounds that would make a good gift, such as a rose, and give it to the suitor; this allows the suitor to give the gift to the rival during the matchmaking interaction.


NOTE: There are no pictures in this section yet, because no suitors' profiles have been revealed.

When they are implemented, some suitors may look like gender-bent versions of the rivals, but others may not.[6]

Kokona Haruka's Suitor

Main Article: Kokona Haruka

When the November 15th, 2015 Build came out, YandereDev stated that Kokona's second crush is one of the students who already attends Akademi High School.[7] He may not be a suitor in the final game, due to the fact that Kokona is only a test rival in the debug builds. This student turned out to be her male counterpart, Riku Soma. The player can matchmake Kokona with him as of the September 22nd, 2016 Build.

  • If too many rivals are being eliminated through matchmaking, Senpai will assume he is not as appealing as other boys are[10] and that no girl will ever love him.[11]
  • The suitors will still be male if the player chooses a female Senpai, which means the ten rivals are bisexual.[12]
  • Sometimes a rival's suitor will be in the same club or class, but this will not always be the case.[13]
