If type A's are the tsuntsun, does that mean that type B's are the deredere?


Pretty much but not limited to being constant lovey dovey as their default mood.


Type B are closer to a more normal behavior that only acts tsun in certain situations but not as a default pattern to every thing. Many times their tsun has a reason too since the guy is teasing them. This tsundere are not like those Kugimiya Rie lolis that never shut-up and hit people and their dere is more honest. They are more mature and don't act all tsun after showing little affection(dere) to hide themselves because they are too immature to show their feelings.
Examples are amazing characters like Makise Kurisu and Isayama Yomi.


Ah yes Makise Kurisu...is a great tsundere...

LOL Yandere? She even calls herself a tsundere in the anime and the LN.
You're really arguing with the Yandere part? Remember the part when she kidnapped him? Or the part where Araragi was seriously worried she'd kill a certain girl? Or the part where she threatened him all of her scenes?

Meh, all tsundere. Watch Yuno for actual yandere behaviour.

I find that the application of the _____dere fad has gotten a bit out of hand. Why does the fanbase seem so intent on classifying every character like this when the basic descriptions are so limited? And to that end it seems like people add a new _____dere when nothing else from jargon can apply. I've found it at least uncommon for tsundere and kuudere to overlap as the cast member in question need not necessarily kick your face in or be cynical/blunt. And dandare, in all honesty, seems more like a variant on the kuudere.

So what else are we going to add to the dictionary? Kamidere? Genkidere? Sugoidere? This whole phenomenon is just ridiculous. @_@

It makes it easier to point out a character's traits and criticize them. I think. Either that, or it's that one thing where people just like to group and categorize things.

I'm aware of the first half of your statement. I think the second part applies a lot more though. :S

Voted for Yandere: not because I really like those, but because I can relate.
Kuudere are also pretty awesome, followed by Deredere.
Dandere are just way too cold for me, and Tsundere should be mass hanged imo. Never heard of the others.

Tsundere!! I got to have my Rin Tohsaka and Misaka Mikoto!!

Although as said before there is more to the character. I just hate it when people say ''It's just a typical *enter character category*"

Really annoying

Yandere>Tsundere> rest for me.
Yandere are like even better than Tsundere because:

We can see so much tsundere, that the genre becomes boring after some times (like shonen, well imo)
Yandere prove their love by being much more than just words and slapsticks. And usually have a real backstory as a reason for that.

Well, I just love Yandere, much more attaching than basic Tsundere...

Yandere. Let's be honest here, everyone loves the crazy bitches.

I can't be the only one here who got really happy when they saw Gasai Yuno with a katana kinda late in Mirai Nikki, right? Right?

Okay fine maybe I'm weird whatever xP

Everyone knows tsundere is the most popular, so they are everywhere. Actually, I'm tired seeing tsunderes often as the main girl in animes... ==a

btw, my favorite is dandere because they are cute.
and Yandere because they are interesting to watch especially if they are creepy and super violent (i.e. Gasai Yuno, Ryuugu Rena)

dandere>yandere>kuudere/deredere>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>tsundere/kamidere/himedere

but, I actually prefer them without their "dere" side. That's why I love Nagato Yuki. She is a "dan" and never show her "dere" side until in the disappearance of suzumiya haruhi.

Kuudere or dandere, I'm not exactly sure about the difference yet but I might prefer the latter over the former.

Tsundere > Dandere > Kuudere > Yandere.


Although it really depends on their personality if it's suited for them.

More or less. But there aren't enough of those.

Kuuderes aren't common enough. They're very interesting, and I'd love if there were more of that archetype out there.

Rena is a Yangire. The Yandere in Higurashi is Sion.

Personally, I like Deredere... It makes me go kyaa. Shame there aren't terribly many characters like that.
Second is Tsundere, but its not because I like them or anything!
Third is Himedere/Kamidere as they're pretty much the same thing unless we're using hime to represent "Kind and noble on the outside"
Fourth is Dandere because... I dunno. *Looks away*
And last is Yandere. Because they usually aren't done very well or are just dislikable characters... IMIHO.
When I go for the throat, I go straight for the juggler.
