Deredere characters are very sweet and energetic. They are usually cheerful and happy and they tend to spread joyfulness to the ones around them. No matter what may happen, they quickly revert to their cheerful self.

Derederes are like the other types, such as Tsundere or Yandere, as while they are indeed in love with someone, they are still able to develop their characters separate from them along a different path.

The biggest difference between other deres and Derederes is that Derederes don't find it strange for someone else to be getting along with the person they love, as long as they’re not doing anything harmful to them. They're even mostly fine if their love starts to couple with someone else because that’s just how kind they are. In the end, as long as they are happy, the Deredere won’t kick up a huge fuss with whatever happens in the end. They’ll even be nice to their rivals and have fun in the process.

Derederes are unafraid to show their care and affection to the hero, though when it comes to their love for them, they are either completely open about it or somewhat hesitant about sharing those feelings with them. They'll often willingly cuddle up with the hero and hit on them.  

A more mature version of this type of dere is Oujodere. A more extreme version of this dere is Megadere.  

Meaning of the Name

This may be the only character type that doesn’t have any abbreviation with the base "deredere" (デレデレ) word, although the definition isn’t simply "lovey dovey" like the other types.
