A Bakadere refers to a character who is very clumsy and stupid. More often than not, they lack common sense.


Bakadere characters are for the most part very innocent and sweet, but their stupidity outshines their other attributes. They are basically a dim bulb or klutzy girl or boy in love. In other words, this type is quite a ditz or a klutz, and they're like a 10 year old when it comes to love, in the way they swoon over people so easily and handle it so amateurishly.

Most tend to be overly carefree and optimistic due to their lack of intelligence. Bakadere characters also act childish and air-headed. they usually rush into things without thinking them through first, resulting in embarrassing situations.

Meaning of the Name

The word is a compound of "baka" (バカ), which means stupid or moron, fool and "deredere" (デレデレ), which means "lovey dovey".
