Not to be confused with a nemuidere

A darudere refers to a character who is often very lazy and dull.[1]

Darudere ダルデレ

darudere ダルデレ is a character that is darui ダルい, "sluggish," and always says things are too much of a pain in the ass to do. If left alone, they'll just sit on their chair without doing anything at all. The dere part comes when they're asked to do something by their love interest. Then they say "Ugh, I don't want to, but fine, I'll go. I just need to go with you, right? Then you'll stop bothering me?"

That is, despite their massive complaints about having to do anything, they will lift a finger if it's for someone they like.

Darudere characters would rather sit around and show no emotion towards anyone, including their love interest. They are nonchalant to those whom they love, but they do express emotions, just usually show no interest in those who like them.

Daruderes are similar to nemuideres, as both have the same personality.

Meaning of the Name

This word is a compound of "darui" (ダルい), which means sluggish, and "deredere" (デレデレ), which means "lovey dovey".
