We investigate the emergence of hyperons in black-hole-forming failed supernovae, which are caused by the dynamical collapse of nonrotating massive stars. We perform neutrino-radiation hydrodynamical simulations in general relativity, adopting realistic hyperonic equation of state. Attractive and repulsive cases are examined for the potential of Σ hyperons. Since hyperons soften the EOS, they shorten the time interval from bounce to black hole formation, which corresponds to the duration of neutrino emission. This effect is more pronounced in the attractive case than in the repulsive case because Σ hyperons appear more easily. In addition, we investigate the impacts of pions to find that they also promote recollapse toward black hole formation.
