They become stalkers and use violence on, and possibly even murder, any person who gets close to their love interest — even if they’re too shy to simply speak with that person they have a crush on. ( Source Wiki Fandom)

Personality: A yanadere may seem like a normal person, they appear happy, social, and usually very well liked by those around them. However, there is one thing that makes a yandere crazy … love. Love turns a yandere absolutely bonkers, and often violent. Fear is also a big factor. If they fear the one they love is being taken from them … they will do about anything to prevent that from happening, and I mean anything. They become either obsessive or very possessive.
