I might have the slightest knowledge of what a tsundere is, but can someone explain to me what it really means, and the meanigs of all the other dere's. If there was a list of all the dere's and there meanings, that would be great.

Thanks Shur, that helped a lot. Are there any other forms of dere, I should know of?

Those are usually used to describe (anime) girl personality types:

Tsundere is acting cold, arrogant and violent, usually even more if it's towards the guy she likes. But when she gets hit in her "soft spot", which is the same guy, she will suddenly go into the quiet-modest-blushy mode. (In short, a bitch on the outside, but really cute girl on the inside)

Yandere is usually a normal girl on the surface, but then something might crack in her head, and she ends up tearing up the guts of everyone who was unlucky to get caugh in her rage. (In short, cute girl who becomes a psychopath at the times)

Deredere is... well... just a horny girl (as I understand it).

Wrong section sis.

I love that graph Zuly posted.

Tsudere is loving you and pretending they hate you. The type you have 'win over'.
Yandere is delusionally, obsessively loving you. Like a Stalker person who doesn't realize that's a BAD TOUCH.
Kuudere/Dandere: Defrosting Mrs. Spock.
Yangire: Just plain psychotic.

TV Tropes is good for this stuff. Here you go:

http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/Tsundere

http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/Yandere

http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/Kuudere

http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/Dandere

"dere" basically means lovestruck, or something to that effect.

"Tsun" means cool, aloof. Tsundere goes between cool and mean to warm and loving.

Kuudere is part "cool" and "dere." Basically someone who covers up their dere side with a cool facade. But different from a tsundere, because rather than being confrontational and maybe even violent, they'll be dismissive and whatnot.

Dandere stands for danmari-dere, which is a girl who is usually silent but dere when her love interest is around. Sometimes related to those quiet, emotionless girls.


I am the senpai that notices you.

stereotypes anime fans use to describe charachters to seem more knowledgeable and maybe pretend to be emo :/

+1 for d'graph btw.

There's debate over that. Some people say she's Tsundere (towards Kyon) but other people claim she's just an energetic, sociopathic jerk-type girl and thus does not really fit into any of the sub-categories. (Not all characters will all of the time...which is a good thing, really. :3)

Nah, they will always. Overprotective fans try to take their characters out of the categories, but there will be one for them for sure.

Bitch. Nah, just kidding. I don't think she belongs in this category, just like Nika already said. .... What exactly is she? I guess she's god.

What's so funny about someone that does not admit their love for you?

I mean, they are cute when they happen to others, I'd not want it for me.

People often argue against Haruhi Suzumiya being Tsundere, but her last...spoiler? She's rough with Kyon in a very non-"you're the one I like so I'm dominating you" sort of way, but very indifferent. Which is why Kyon doesn't understand if she likes him or is just a bossy club person.


I don't know if I accidentally posted spoiler or not but I tried.
