The Dere Types Wiki
Advertisement

With many dere types come many official dere combinations as well. Several of the more popular ones are listed on this page.

Danredere

A "Danredere" is a dandere who also has a deredere side.

Meaning of the Name

Danredere (だんれデレ) takes the "dan" (だん) from "danmari" (だんまり), meaning "silence," and the "re" (レ) from "deredere" (デレデレ), meaning "lovey dovey," with a dere (デレ) added to the end.

Personality

Like dandere characters, danredere characters are quiet, but less shy. A danredere acts dandere most of the time, and they usually never make the first move. However, unlike dandere characters, if someone makes the first move by being nice to them, they will switch to their deredere side.

Kuutsundere

A "Kuutsundere" is a cross between a kuudere and tsundere.

Meaning of the Name

Kuutsundere (クーツンデレ) takes the "kuu" (クー) from "kuuru" (クール), a katakanization of the English word "cool", a "tsun" (ツン) from "tsuntsun" (ツンツン), a mimetic word for "irritable", and the "dere" (デレ) from "deredere" (デレデレ), meaning "lovey dovey".

Personality

Kuutsundere[1] characters, unlike tsunderecharacters, do not hide their feelings behind a mask of sarcasm, but express their true feelings. They do not have as intense mood swings as a tsundere, being more collected like a kuudere.

There are 2 main types of kuutsundere characters, the "Temperic Type" and the "Apathetic Type".

The "Temperic Type" of kuutsundere is known for their temperic nature. Sometimes they are calm and cool head individuals, but there are times that they can be more hotheaded. It takes them a while to warm up to their love interest.

The "Apathetic Type", like the name suggests, are apathetic, abstracted, and often show little to no emotions. They can be very sarcastic and rude at times, much like a kitikudere.

During the development of the plot, they may not reveal the dere-side at all, since they are often secondary characters.

Megaundere

A "Megaundere" is a cross between a megadere and a undere.

Meaning of the Name

Megaundere (メガアンダー) takes the English word "mega", meaning "big", "un" (ウン), meaning "yes", and the "dere" (デレ) from "deredere" (デレデレ), meaning "lovey dovey".

Personality

Megaundere characters obsess over their crush to an extreme, putting their love interest on an incredibly high pedestal. They are completly love blind, unable to see any fault in their love interest. They are very agreeable and submissive, to the point that they are willing to give themselves up to their partner like a slave.

Megaundere characters are very easy to manipulate, since they are so loyal to their love interest, making them susceptible to abuse.

Tsunshun

A "Tsunshun" is a character that goes "tsun", and then goes "shun".

Meaning of the Name

Tsunshun (ツンシュン) takes the "tsun" (ツン) from "tsuntsun" (ツンツン), a mimetic word for "irritable", and "shun" (シュン), a mimetic word for "sad."

Personality

Like a tsundere, tsunshun characters will act grumpy and reject or act uninterested about something, but where as a tsundere would go "I'm doing it, but it's not like I like you or anything!" and try to accept what the other person has to say while trying to keep their "I'm not interested" mask, a tsunshun will not try to find a way to make things work. Instead, they will say "no" and then get depressed because they couldn't say "yes".

Example: "No, I'm not going to the festival" words out of their mouth = "Why didn't I say yes and went to the festival! Why!" words inside their mind a few minutes later.

It doesn't need to be a straight "no"; it can be any tsun or anti-social expression. A tsunshun will reject others and act like they are above the them, but then get mad at themselves for being rude and not being sincere.

Yeredere

A "Yeredere" is a cross between a deredere and yandere.

Meaning of the Name

Yeredere (イェレデレ) takes the "y" (イ) from "yanderu" (病んでる), meaning "to be mentally sick," and the "ere" (ェレ) from "deredere" (デレデレ), meaning "lovey dovey," with a dere (デレ) added to the end.

Personality

"Yeredere" characters are similar to yandere characters and deredere characters. They are characters obsessed with their love interest. They do not kill, but they do exaggerated things to show their affections, such as praying to them, cooking for them every day, giving lots of gifts and love letters, stalking, stealing their items, between others, similar to megadere.

While a yeredere can have multiple friends, they direct their kindness, affection, and love towards only a single person.

While deredere characters are always cheerful, a yeredere is always concerned about their love interest, whether they are feeling well or not. Yeredere characters are almost always happy, but express it less than a deredere.

They are obsessive, but not the "dark" kind of obsessive like a yandere has. They aren't violent toward people that get close to their love interest, and some yeredere may respect their love interest's freedom to interact with friends and people close to them.
