Visual Novel: Yandere-chan
aka: Yandere-chan
Yandere-chan is a visual novel created with the free-to-use Ren'py engine. As the name implies, the main heroine of Yandere-chan is a Yandere of a truly epic proportion. The game begins when you transfer into a new school and meet a girl named Mia, who seems to know you. It only goes downhill from there. There is only one good ending in the entire game, all other endings end . . . messily.

  • Absurdly Sharp Blade: Yes, while it is possible to kill someone with scissors, Mia makes it seem easy.
  • Adding Insult to Injury: The entire last fifteen minutes of the poison ending, arguably. While your character is on the floor, hemorrhaging blood from their orifices, demanding a motive and insisting Mia lied the whole time, Mia spends the time they have left coldly debunking their argument, thereby denying them a chance to know why she did it, all while proving she never uttered a single false word. Ouch.
  • Ax-Crazy: Mia turns out to be this. In the good ending, she's getting better.
  • Berserk Button: Mia does not like it when you wash your blood off her calculator. Or get her name wrong.
  • Blatant Lies: After Mia fatally poisons you and your friends, you try and identify a moment when she did this. She never did.
  • Blood Lust: Mia, to the point where she licks the calculator you got blood on.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: Guess who?
  • Crazy-Prepared: Mia, during the second day. She prepared a lunch for herself because she was anticipating you asking her to sit with you at lunch; she also made poisoned raviolis in case you asked her to sit with you and your friends, with an extra container (to serve the non-poisoned pasta in) just in case.
  • Cute and Psycho: Mia.
  • Disappeared Dad: Your dad is never mentioned and Mia's is dead.
  • Disproportionate Retribution: Forgetting her name is so CRUEL of you, you deserve to be stabbed to death for it.
  • Distressed Dude: You whenever Mia snaps.
  • Driving Question: How Mia knows the MC.
  • Dull Eyes of Unhappiness: Mia, whenever her more 'emotional' side is about to rear its head. Actually Lampshaded by the player character in a certain ending, where he actually checks his watch to see if it's after sunset because the highlights have left Mia's eyes. The distraction gets him stabbed.
  • Easily Forgiven: Mia in the good ending.
  • Emotionless Girl: Mia, unless she's interacting with the player character.
  • Girl with Psycho Weapon: Mia and her scissors.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: Mia when she feels that your friends are trying to steal you from her.
  • Hello, Insert Name Here: The male player character.
  • Hair Antennae: Mia has two antennae on the top of her hair.
  • If I Can't Have You: An essential for any Yandere's repertoire. When you want to spend time with your friends, depending on your choices, Mia will either kill you and herself, to get away from distractions, or poison you and your friends, then watch as you die in agony.
  • Improbable Weapon User: In most of the endings, Mia kills you with scissors.
  • Intimate Healing: Attempted by Mia. When you turn her down, she settles for sticking her tongue into the calculator you cut yourself on instead.
  • Laughing Mad: Mia in spades. The main character notes her ability to swing from this to Tranquil Fury in a heartbeat during one of the bad endings.
  • Love Makes You Crazy: Mia appeared to be a normal - if anti-social - girl to the rest of the world. Then she met you.
  • Licking the Blade: Mia licks your blood off her scissors at one point.
  • Madness Mantra: It's wrong! It's wrong! It's wrong! It's wrong! It's wrong!... If you wash the blood off the calculator then give it back directly.
  • Murder-Suicide: Ten bucks if you guess who pulls this on who.
  • New Transfer Student: The player character.
  • Nightmare Face: If Mia invites you to her house (see below) everything looks innocent enough, but just before the screen goes black Mia does the most horrible crazy face during a split second.
  • No Name Given:Despite having very emotional deaths in the omelet ending, your four friends do not have names.
  • Nonstandard Game Over: If you avoid triggering Mia's psychosis for two days, she invites you over to her house. You were never seen again. BAD END The reason to this is never made explicit, but given the game's title...
  • Parental Abandonment: As you find out in the good ending, both Mia's parents died in plane crash.
  • Perfect Poison: Aversion during the ravioli/poison ending; the victims are all portrayed as having extremely violent physical episodes, and the scene lasts for a good 20 minutes, but given Mia's... nature... it's likely she wanted to see them suffer horribly.
  • Premortem One Liner: Compensate with more blood...
  • Railroad Tracks of Doom: Whether or not you make it depends on your choice. Go back to your original platform, and you end up red paste on the tracks.
  • Spoiler Title
  • Shout-Out:
  • Shrinking Violet: How everyone perceives Mia. Couldn't be more wrong.
  • Spit-Trail Kiss: Between Mia and a calculator with your blood on it.
  • Supernatural Gold Eyes: Mia
  • Talking Is a Free Action: It sure takes you a long time to die in the omelet ending.
    • You also take your sweet time contemplating the fact that a train is speeding towards you, and you're on the tracks.
  • There Are No Therapists: Averted in the good ending when Mia is placed in a mental institution.
  • Those Two Guys: More like those four guys with your friends.
  • Title Drop: In the good ending, you state that "I was in love with a yandere. My little yandere-chan."
  • Together in Death: Mia invokes this in one ending.
  • Tranquil Fury: Mia, during the ravioli/poison ending.
  • When She Smiles: Mia.
  • Yandere: Well duh.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Mia.
