Gap Moe is when a character does something completely contradictory to what their usual habits/personality/character/appearence dictates.

Yup, for the gap effect to work, you have to see the person in a completely different light that you never expect.

A tomboy showing off feministic characteristics (Ex: Tsugumi from Nisekoi)
A tough guy who is actually a pacifist (Ex: Cromartie High School)
A stubborn perfectionist who finally admits defeat (Ex: Sasuke from Naruto)
A character that almost always dresses flashy but decides to dress normal (Kuroneko from Oreimo)

Do you like gap moe or are you completely indifferent about it? Is it your fetish? What are some of your favorite uses of gap moe?

Showing a different side to a character, I love it but it can't be overly used.

Yeah but can they really be gap moe? Tsunderes are usually pretty easy to spot
