A Kamidere refers to a character with a god complex.

Personality

Kamidere characters believe that they are a god, feeling superior compared to others because of this, even if they are not actually a deity and are human or of the same species as the other characters. They are also highly arrogant and proud, and aren’t afraid to speak their minds and show everyone how right they are.[1]

They are considered an extreme version of Himedere and Oujidere characters. They believe that they are the most perfect and infallible beings, and think they should get special attention and priority. Their pride makes them highly arrogant, overconfident and stubborn.

Kamidere characters think that they are better than everyone and that they are always right. If they don't share the same species or position as the protagonists or other characters, they will also act like these groups are inferior to them. It's because of this that a great amount of Kamideres are villains or antagonists, but not all of them have to be.

Another type of Kamidere is the person acting lordly, prideful, selfish, arrogant, overconfident, and oftentimes narcissistic like the regular Kamidere but the difference is that this type of Kamidere actually knows they’re not a god, but acts superior somehow anyway.

Sometimes this is just an act; whereas this character is afraid to show their true personality. Kamideres will eventually show their more "dere" side when their ”kami“ exterior is broken.

Meaning of the Name

This word is a compound of "kami" (かみ), which means "God", and "deredere" (デレデレ) which means "lovey dovey". [2]
