* Ryoba gets more messed-up in the video [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lhWS48DXL1E "A Childhood Lesson"]]. It was a known fact that she essentially enabled Ayano's {{Yandere}} tendencies to begin with. But here we see her nick her finger while cooking as a way of teaching a young Yan-chan how to efficiently clean up blood. Note that it's likely she may have done so on purpose specifically so she could have this lesson. Also, [[AdultFear Mr. Aishi is explicitly mentioned to not have come home from work yet.]]


** Before the April 26th build, their AI was only half-completed, thus they didn't have an actual routine. There was a timer by the incinerator that counts down for them to spawn and despawn. When spawned, they never moved, instead just sitting/standing around. If you walked around close enough to them, their heads would follow your movements and they would shout at you -- without subtitles, by the way.
** Oh, and if you tried to kill one of them? He or she would use their weapon, cracking your skull and putting you in a coma. And if you carried a corpse or body part near them, they'll CHASE YOU DOWN and crack your skull. This, accompanied with their unusual appearances (the guys have 50's hairstyles and pompadours, the girls have dyed streaks in their hair and colored dust masks) makes them very surreal and eerie. Doesn't help that their leader is stated to be the single toughest student in the school, stronger than even martial arts master Budo Masuta. And she's the eighth rival.

**To make it worse, the Delinquents [[spoiler:are their violent selfs *because* of bullying!]]



* The delinquents are pretty unsettling. How? Let's count the ways.

** If you goad one of them into chasing you and abuse debug's teleport function to get away from them (disabled in later builds, sadly), they will literally ''run through walls and sky to get to you''.

* What happens when you try adding Osana into the game by editing the JSON file from January 2017 onward? [[spoiler:The moment you enter the school, it immediately goes into low atmosphere mode, and after a couple of seconds, [[JumpScare Fun Girl appears from out of nowhere and begins to chase you down]]. After she catches you (and she will, as she always guns straight for Yan-chan ''and'' moves faster than her), she will crash your game, and trying to open it again only results in a dialogue screen of her mocking you and telling you to put the files back the way they're supposed to be, or she ''won't let you play the game at all''.]] A pretty effective way to discourage novice dataminers, to say the least.

Added DiffLines:

** The only characters known to get on Megami's nerves are Ayano, and Megami's referenced younger brother. Could she be driven to killing her own sibling?

Added DiffLines:

** Said build also allows you to [[HighVoltageDeath fatally electrocute]] a student using nothing more than a screwdriver and a bucket of water. Think about it from the student's perspective: they've just been soaked and they're sitting in the dark. They grope around for a few moments until they find the light switch. The next thing they know, they have more than a hundred volts running through their body. That's the last thing they experience, because they're dead before they hit the ground.

Added DiffLines:

* Hunger Mode, being a reference to ''VideoGame/LittleNightmares'', is quite horrifying. Your objective is to ''eat as many people as possible''.


** The Evil persona was later changed to "Spiteful" come March 2018, with the difference being that Spiteful students only react with admiration if you kill someone with a very low reputation, or someone who has bullied them. This brings to mind Nightmare Fuel of a different colour in that somebody could hate another so much that they'll delight in them being murdered ''right in front of them''.
-->"They had it coming! Don't worry... I won't tell anyone what I saw."



* We got another Halloween minigame and this time it's a Slender parody with copies of Midori. When you hear that, you expect a goofy Slender parody, right? Not really... The Midori clones are giggling and are chanting "Yandere Dev", they float (yes, there're floating) and, of course, they are your chaser. By the way, you are on a time limit so searching for this game's pages (which are laptops) is goanna get stressful.

* The March 2018 build expanded the low reputation Game Over to include a full cutscene of Yan-chan walking through a black environment with faceless girls giggling and laughing at her. They multiply more and more until Yan-chan sees Senpai stood in the middle of them, who disgustedly shakes his head and folds his arms. In one update, a simple game-ending text wall was changed to what feels like a nightmare sequence.


** The [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gHtd9ErCFWk February 2018 progress update]] expands on this, with a Fragile persona that has a unique reaction to bullying. Instead of being DrivenToSuicide, it is possible to drive them to murder instead, by first pushing them to a breaking point, and then making a target (usually your rival) look like the source of their suffering. The video may cut to black when it demonstrates the results, but the sound effects make it clear as to how brutal the murder is.
*** For those who known people driven to violence by bullying, this concept can strike too close to home.

** Killing a student council member will also invoke this as Megami goes ahead with installing strict security measures. But instead of causing the Atmosphere to degrade gradually, the transition to the lowest Atmosphere setting is ''instant and irreversible''.



* [=YandereDev=] implemented loading screens that react to the school's Atmoshere. With a high-to-medium atmosphere, it's nothing special, just a white screen with a pink silhouette of Yan-chan running with a knife. When the school atmosphere gets low, though, it turns into a black screen, the word "Loading..." becoming bright red text, and Yan-chan is straddling Rival-chan and stabbing her. Their silhouettes are also red, but for a different reason. They're drenched in blood.

** [[spoiler: After Kokona kills Musume, we only see her body from the shoulders down for the rest of the video. While this was probably to avoid having to censor the video like others, NothingIsScarier is in play, as the framing of the scene and the amount of blood implies that there isn't ''much'' of her head left after Kokona is done with her.]]


** In the Student Info screen, one of the profiles available right away is (or ''was'') that of Info-chan… who appears as silhouette with red glasses. If you try to check her profile, the UI goes static-y and the additional information box has Info-chan saying – in a prerecorded message no less – that there is nothing Yan-chan needs to know of her. It's rather creepy when you come across it the first time.
