What's the purpose of this wiki?
When you are reading manga, watching anime, playing games, or surfing the internet, you've probably encountered some names that end with "-dere". "What do these mean?" you wonder. This wiki tries to collect as much information as possible about each type of dere, including lists with some characters as examples.

Now go and explore this little wiki and learn everything about all the deres!

What exactly do these words ending with "-dere" mean?
Dere comes from "deredere" (デレデレ), an onomatopoeia meaning "lovestruck" or "lovey dovey". Dere type characters are characters that express their affection in different ways, or on different levels. Most of the dere types are how characters react to becoming lovestruck.
