A byoukidere refers to a character who is usually very sweet and kind, but suffers from a physical disease, usually a fatal one. They usually have two fates: one is that they die (this is more common), and the other is they get some miraculous cure (usually at the hands of the hero). In the case of the latter, they usually end up being the one chosen by the hero. Many byoukideres are confined to wheelchairs or need assistance in getting around. They are often frail and weak physically. The disease causes the byoukidere to become feeble.
Byoukideres are not a very common dere type.
Many byoukideres have a personality akin to yamato nadeshiko. They are very kind, helpful, and sweet in nature. Usually they are not aggressive when it comes to love, and tend to be shy and reserved in front of others. However, there has been at least one with a tsundere personality.
Meaning of the Word Edit
The term derives from the Japanese word "byouki" (病気), meaning "illness", and "deredere" (デレデレ) which means "lovey dovey".
