Unofficial Dere Types

Bibiridere

Not to be confused with "Dandere" or "Hajidere".

"Bibiridere" are characters with a cowardly personality. They will often be afraid of something or someone and will need their love interest for comfort.

However, if the love interest and those close to the bibiridere need to be saved instead, the bibiridere will face their own fears for the sake of their loved ones.

Meaning

Bibiridere (ひびりデレ) comes from the word "bibiri" (ひびり) which means "scaredy cat" and "deredere" (デレデレ) which means "lovey-dovey".

Personality

This type of dere has a cowardly personality and is often afraid of everything and everyone remotely scary. They get scared easily, so they may hide behind people they trust or love interest, and will be dependent on them for protection from what scares them. This cowardly personality may give the impression that they should be protected at all times by the love interest.

But even if bibiridere characters have this cowardly personality, if someone they care for or love interest is in danger, they will try to do everything in their power to make sure they are safe, leaving their fears behind and showing great courage while acting on their love interest's behalf.

Bishondere

This unofficial dere type is a candidate for deletion or needs a modification. If you are against its deletion say why in the comment section/talk page or change any necessary information.
Reason: Need to be changed to bishounen as a variation of oujodere.


Not to be confused with "Oujodere" or "Shinshidere".

A "Bishondere" is a male character that is a femboy (tomgirl), with "feminine" physical traits and personality. This would be the male counterpart of Bokukko.

Meaning

Bishondere (美少デレ) is acombination of "Bishounen" (美少年), a japanese term used for a male character that possesses 'feminine' beautiful traits, and "deredere" (デレデレ), meaning lovey-dovey.

Personality

They are "femboy" male characters with sometimes feminine appearance and with what is seen as a sensitive or even "girly" personality.

These characters have interests which are usually associated with girls and lack interest or skills in what is seen as "masculine", like sports. They will have interests which rely on aesthetic abilities that are seen as more common on women, such as hair-styling, make-up, fashion, and things which are typically considered as "woman's work", such as cooking and sewing.

Some will have "feminine" physical traits, being slender like a woman and with big beautiful eyes, with no body or facial hair. More extreme examples would look exactly like a woman, being normally confused as one by other characters and potentially viewers at first.

They could be considered the male equivalent to oujodere, who acts lady-like and like a gentle princess despite being a male character.

Borodere

Not to be confused with "Byoukidere", "Kanedere" and "Utsudere".

A "Borodere" is a person of good heart who lives in poor conditions.

Meaning

Borodere (ぼろデレ) comes from the word "boroboro" (ぼろぼろ) which means "tattered", and "deredere" (デレデレ) which means "lovey-dovey".

Personality

Borodere characters are usually unfortunate souls who end up poor at some point, living on the street or poorly treated by others. That is why they can be seen wearing old, shabby and torn clothes, sometimes even showing signs of being unhealthy and ill.

There are several reasons why these characters can end up like this. They may already be born in a poor place or lose their parents at some point on their life. They can find themselves with bad and abusive guardians or being in a toxic relationship.

Many of them are even homeless, which is why most are forced to steal or work very hard to earn some food or shelter. They are neglected by society, so it's hard for them to find some food or maintain good hygiene, being ignored by people of higher status. However, with time they will also learn how to survive and adapted to their environments, which will not only help them in their everyday life, but they will also use such knowledge and abilities to protect their loved ones when necessary.

Due to their difficulties living a normal life, many would never consider entering a relationship at first with anyone, sometimes not even wanting frienships. They will be more concerned about their own problems and survival than being with other people. The love interest will have to help the borodere find their place and make the borodere see that they are worthy of living a better life with someone by their side, without constant fear.

If the love interest is also a borodere, it's possible that at least one of them doesn't want to get close with the other, thinking that it's already difficult to survive on their own to now worry about another life. Whether this actually happens or not, both borodere will finally help each other in their survival, facing the difficulties on their way together.

If instead the love interest is of a higher status than the borodere, the borodere will not want to approach their love interest in fear of the problems that this could bring to the love interest, also sometimes with the belief that the love interest might also see them lowly like the others. Even if the borodere wants to, they would never imagine and believe the love interest reciprocating their feelings, and if the love interest does, to be able to provide a normal life to the love interest.

Bosudere

Not to be confused with "Bocchandere", "Himedere", "Oujidere", "Kamidere" or "Tsundere".

A "Bosudere" is a character who acts bossy.

Meaning

Bosudere (ボスデレ) comes from the word "bosu" which means "boss" in japanese and "deredere" (デレデレ) which means "lovey-dovey".

Personality

A bosudere is a character who acts in an authoritative way and spends the day giving orders to people, mostly their love interest. Some can be the head of a company, or leader of a group, but some bosudere characters can just be really bossy with those close to them.

A bosudere can be seen as a boring and rigid boss or leader, who is often tough and even stern with others and even their love interest. They care about success and organization in their group. Despite being rigid, they still care about people, especially their love interest, which can be seen or noticed at times.

They can act like a tsundere character and other arrogant dere types, who won't admit their real concern for others and can appear to only care about themselves at first. They can change their attitude for their love interest after seeing that they maybe acting too strict and demanding around them.

Another type of bosudere is a gentle and polite boss/leader to others, always giving advice and helping.

Bureidere

Not to be confused with "Tsundere", "Kitikudere" or "Darudere".

A "Bureidere" is a character that can be seen as rude and impolite. They tend to act unmannerly and can use a lot of swear words too.

Meaning

Bureidere (ぶれいデレ) comes from the word "burei" (ぶれい) which means "impolite" or "rude", and "deredere" (デレデレ) which means "lovey-dovey".

Personality

Bureidere is a type of dere that tends to swear and be impolite around a lot of people, even "insulting" their own friends. Despite the way these characters speak and express themselves, they really have a lot of respect towards those they care about and don't really mean the insulting things they say and do in a derogatory way.

Bureidere characters will also act impolite and with a lack of delicacy, not only because of their words, but also because of their actions and manners, which can be seen as the complete opposite of oujodere and shinshidere. Even so, they also know when to control themselves in certain situations. They wouldn't dare to act rude in front of someone in a position of higher authority or someone that would easily bring them down if provoked, but they might lash out when their patience runs out.

Some bureidere characters will be even more comfortable around their love interest, which will result in them being more bad-mannered and using curses more often, while other bureidere will just talk and act like this around everyone, included the love interest. Other bureidere will do the opposite, and after gaining some trust with the love interest, they will act nicer to them and even others in the vicinity, without using profanities in their wording or without acting disrespectful, which will shock some of the people present.

A lot of arrogant dere types like tsundere could very likely be bureidere, as this could be seen as a more rude form of darudere. Even so, a bureidere doesn't necessarily use these words and impolite actions in a provocative way, and is just in their vocabulary and their preferable way of expressing themselves and speaking with others, even more in front of those close to them.

Charaodere

Not to be confused with "Hiyakasudere" or "Erodere".

Charaodere is a character that acts like a playboy/playgirl.

Meaning

Charaodere comes from "charao", which means "playboy", "frivolous", "easy to talk with", "fun individual", "easy to be with"; however, "likely to cheat" too, and "deredere" (デレデレ), which means "lovey-dovey".

Personality

They are characters that try to seduce others, most of the time achieving it.

They are what it's known as a "playboy" and "playgirl". They are people who seek only physical contact with others when it comes to love and are less interested in a future with someone together.

They are characters that are good at seduction, and will try to flirt with anyone they think they have a chance with. Thanks to their personality, or way with words, they usually succeed. Although, these relationships don't last long and are only used for entertainment. They don't really feel true love with these interactions. Most of the time, only physical attraction or simply boredom is what binds them together.

Due to their ease with women/men, they are sometimes portrayed surrounded by them, although like the charaodere, many are only interested in their appearance and having a good time.

It's possible that if someone rejects them, they would try to conquer this person's heart no matter what, since a lot of charaodere characters will be obsessed with the fact that they must have everyone's heart. There are plenty of charaodere characters who won't mind too much if this happens, as they can find other people interested easily. But, they might try teasing this person a little from time to time, just to try again, or because of their flirtatious nature.

Daredere

Not to be confused with "Deredere".

A "Daredere" is a character that is reckless and rushes into dangerous situations.

Meaning

Daredere is a combination of the English word "daredevil" and the japanese word "deredere" (デレデレ), which means "lovey-dovey".

Personality

Daredere is a type of dere that gravitates to the extreme, recklessly enjoying doing dangerous and epic things.

They will thoughtlessly rush into battle or choose the most dangerous but cool options in a situation. Despite this, these characters often perform such actions successfully or without really harming anyone on their side, which leaves the other characters around them speechless and a little scared if they were involved in it.

Some of them will be seen as legends and a badass by other characters or by the audience if they handle these complicated and dangerous actions successfully without breaking a sweat.

Similar to deredere, they will have an overflowing amount of energy and a carefree personality. Sometimes their rash actions can put their loved ones in danger or seem to at first. But this dere type would never really let something bad happen to those they love. If a loved one really is in danger, they would do anything to save them, gathering all their energy to that singular goal no matter what, even turning serious during that mission; which will look even more epic to the viewers.

Spoilers Ahead!
Some examples listed below are spoilers, so read at your own risk!

Content Spoilers: "Mirai Nikki"

Not to be confused with the Japanese "Dorodere" or "Yandere".

A "Dorodere", sometimes spelled "Doredere", refers to a character who acts cute and sweet on the outside but is deeply disturbed on the inside. They will act unpredictably and even crazy from the perspective of other characters.

Despite everything, they will never really do the dark things they say and think to loved ones or because of love.

In Japan, this dere type is known with a completely different meaning. To see the original Japanese version, go to "Dorodere".

Meaning

The word is derived from the terms "dorodoro" (ドロドロ), meaning muddled or confused, and "deredere" (デレデレ), meaning "lovey dovey".

Personality

Dorodere characters appear sweet and lovable on the outside, but are twisted or disturbed on the inside for different reasons. They have sadodere, yangire or yandere thoughts but usually don't act on them. If they do something crazy or they finally snap, they would never arrive at the point where their actions can really harm innocent people or loved ones on purpose.

Dorodere characters could also have mental problems, illnesses, and disorders. Basically, they'll say and sometimes do things that will make other characters distrust them and make them look insane, but they would never want to hurt innocent people.

A dorodere will slowly or unexpectedly show their violent side to their loved ones and people. Dorodere characters are very unpredictable and can strike at any moment. Once they show this way of thinking, the people around them will start to doubt them and even fear them, but despite everything, they would never harm loved ones. There are times where the dorodere will even be shown as the possible antagonists until, normally, the opposite is revealed later on.

Dorodere characters can be a normal person at one point, and then form into a dorodere. As some have mental illnesses, many will start to act this way for this same reason, as it will be difficult for them to control it or realize what they are saying until they are able to calm down and think clearly again.

The difference between dorodere and yandere is that a dorodere would never harm anyone or act out the disturbed thoughts they have on purpose or because of their feelings of love. They will not try to get rid of others who approach their love interest because of jealousy, but might try to scare them in other ways if someone did hurt them in any way.

Dottidere

A "Dottidere" refers to a character who is viewed as acting unusual, eccentric and a little crazy.

Meaning of the Name

The word is a compound of the English word "dotty", in definition is "to be slightly foolish instead of being serious" and "deredere" (デレデレ), which means "lovey dovey".

Personality

Dottidere characters are characters that have unusual behaviour. They are eccentrics who act and talk a bit strange around everyone, including their love interest.

Their love interest will have some trouble getting along with such a person as they will not really understand how to cope with their oddities at first. Overtime, the love interest will learn to adjust to the dottidere and even find such antics as amusing and unique.

Sometimes they can even be seen a little suspicious by other characters. However, they will never actually be psychopathic and will probably never hurt anyone on purpose, although they may give people a bit of a scare from time to time with their abrupt and nonsensical antics.

Eiyuudere

Not to be confused with "Oujidere".

Characters who have a hero complex.

This unofficial dere type is a candidate for deletion or needs a modification. If you are against its deletion say why in the comment section/talk page or change any necessary information.
Reason: Needs more information.

Meaning

Eiyuu means "hero" and "deredere" means "lovey dovey".

Personality

These character try to act like heroes or want to be one, but can sometimes also be arrogant and begin to act idiotic instead because of this.

Fuandere

Not to be confused with "Bibiridere" or "Dandere".

A "Fuandere" is a character who is constantly anxious.

Meaning

Fuandere (不安デレ) comes from the word "fuan" (不安) which means "anxiety", and "deredere" (デレデレ) which means "lovey-dovey".

Personality

This kind of character can be seen most of the time having extreme anxiety. They normally can only be calmed down by their love interest.

Fumindere

Not to be confused with "Hinedere".

A "Fumindere" is a character that is seen restless and barely sleeps, also considered the opposite of nemuidere.

Meaning

Fumindere (不眠デレ) comes from the word fumin (不眠) which means "sleeplessness", "wakefulness" or "insomnia", and "deredere" (デレデレ), which means "lovey-dovey".

Personality

They are characters that feel or show tiredness, especially as a result of lack of sleep, excessive work, or even insomnia. It's because of this that they can be seen acting cold and apathetic towards others, similar to kuudere or hinedere characters, but this is due to sleeplessness, resulting in them being tired and listless all day, even in front of loved ones.

On the outside they don't seem to care about others due to their tired state, but once they can regain sleep or have been able to rest a little, they will show their more caring side.

Their loved ones and love interest will have to help the fumindere so that they can finally rest. They will worry about the fumindere on multiple occasions, seeing their exhausted look and fearing for their health and wellness.

Fushindere

Not to be confused with "Tsundere".

A "Fushindere" is a character with a paranoid personality or a character distrustful of their love interest. Fushindere characters think that their love interest is lying to them.

Meaning

Fushindere comes from the word "fushin", which means "distrust" and "insincerity", and "deredere" (デレデレ) which means "lovey-dovey".

Personality

This kind of character will get paranoid that the person they're dating is lying to them or that they even want to harm to them, even if this is not the case.

Fushindere characters will think that they are hiding something from them, that they don't really love the fushindere like they say they do, or that they are even in love with another character.

Futaridere

This unofficial dere type is a candidate for deletion or needs a modification. If you are against its deletion say why in the comment section/talk page or change any necessary information.
Reason: Needs to explain more their dere side. General concept not related to dere types.

A "Futaridere" is a character that is always with one other character.

Meaning

Futaridere comes from the word "futari" which means "two people" and "deredere" (デレデレ) which means "lovey-dovey".

Personality

This type of character spends most of their time with another character for a reason or another, mostly because they feel safer by their side. This might be because they are siblings, best friends, partners or another similar relationship, although it's also possible that they are forced to be together by some situation.

Basically, when thinking of one of these characters, viewers will also imagine this other, since they are practically inseparable and always together in almost all their screen scenes. They can also be more than two characters, but they must be really close to each other.

Gaishoudere

5d1ff66769859826b32d65e695139cc42ed3d633r1-546-307 hq.gif

Trigger Warning!
This page contains mature content not suitable for all ages or information, language or images that can be sensitive to some people! Precaution is advised.

Content Warnings: Mention and depictions of mental disorders and psychological trauma.

Not to be confused with "Utsudere".

A "Gaishoudere" refers to a character struggling with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Complex Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (C-PTSD), or any form of psychological trauma that was caused by suffering from one-off or ongoing events (e.g. school bullying, war, a love interest dying to cancer, etc.).

Response to the trauma involving their love interest can vary; they may either avoid their love interest, other people & certain places; or they may become emotionally attached to their love interest, leaning on them for support.

Meaning

The word is a compound of "gaishou-sei" (外傷性) meaning "traumatic", and "deredere" (デレデレ), which means "lovey dovey".

Personality

The personality of a gaishoudere can be very diverse, depending on both the character and certain scenarios they have experienced; with a select few becoming obsessive like a yandere, vengeful like a yangire, or muddled like a dorodere; while most other characters can act cheerful like most deredere characters in order to put on a façade to help hide their emotional pain; some can also become stoic like a kuudere, or asocial and quiet like a dandere; and some would go far as to become self-destructive, impulsive, and would use unhealthy coping mechanisms to distract themselves from their trauma.

They can be similar to utsudere characters because of the link between trauma and depression. It depends on what they went through, how much they endured it, and how other characters approach them. For example, if they have been abused by someone close to them, they will become very avoidant towards even their love interest, and would rather isolate themselves than risk getting abused again.

Despite not understanding what the gaishoudere has endured before and after their meeting, if their love interest was always there for them, the gaishoudere can feel so haunted by their memories that they attach themselves to their love interest by being both emotionally and physically affectionate towards them, sometimes to the risk of becoming co-dependent.

Giseidere

5d1ff66769859826b32d65e695139cc42ed3d633r1-546-307 hq.gif

Trigger Warning!
This page contains mature content not suitable for all ages or information, language or images that can be sensitive to some people! Precaution is advised.

Content Warnings: Mention and depictions of mental disorders and psychological trauma.

Not to be confused with "Masodere".

A "Giseidere" refers to a character with "Stockholm Syndrome" or "BPD (Borderline Personality Disorder)". Most of the time, they often mistake abuse and mistreatment for love.

Meaning

This term is an abbreviation of "gisei-sha" (犠牲者) which means "victim", and "deredere" (デレデレ), which means "lovey-dovey". The term giseidere was created by an artist named Yoru Namida.

Personality

Giseidere types are victims of abuse, whose past experiences impact their present view of love. Generally, the perpetrator is their love interest, but not always. They are often paired with a yandere, a yangire, a dorodere, a sadodere, or a onidere, who enslave them and abuse them. giseidere would develop Stockholm Syndrome or BPD, and would accept anything from their special one, often because of self-loathing, which leads them to think they deserve it.

Their vision of love becomes twisted, and they end up believing that the abuse is normal and is love (sometimes, even the only form of love possible). Eventually, their suffering messes up their head, and it gives them a masochistic side really similar to masodere, or leads them to be very emotionally unstable, psychotic, and even abusive to others. giseidere can be very twisted and disturbed. They can be very similar to a yandere and sort of a dorodere.

Giseidere are self-destructive and impulsive, they have little-to-no self-esteem and would be unable to get themselves out of the toxic or deadly relationship. Furthermore, they always play the victim in every situation, where the actual victim of abuse is being silenced and gaslighted by a giseidere.

Geseidere characters have deep seated depression and anxiety, because of their tragic backstories, their mental illness or personality disorder, trauma, hatred, or their toxic or deadly relationship. They are somewhat similar to shundere or even a utsudere. Also, the depression and anxiety will affect their mental illness or disorder that they have.

Hanrandere

Not to be confused with "Kitikudere".

A "Hanrandere" is a character that is rebellious and complains a lot.

Meaning

Hanrandere (反乱デレ) is a combination of "hanran" (反乱) which means "rebellion" or "revolt", and "deredere" (デレデレ), which means "lovey-dovey".

Personality

Hanrandere characters are very rebellious and complain a lot; mostly about all those things related to what they aren't okay with or find as a waste of time. They prefer a set of actions different to what the others in their group decide to do.

If they really have no choice but to do something, they will just do it with a complaint. If they are really interested in doing the thing they are told to do, they will do it happily with no questions asked and will only disagree to do what they don't like or what they think won't work. What the team suggests to do in a situation, is usually a more pacifist course of actions than what the hanrandere wants to do.

They might also try to convince their friends and love interest to become rebellious with them, but without harming or forcing them if they really don't want to. When they lose or their own plan don't work, they always have an excuse for their defeat. If the others in the group are the ones that don't accomplish anything with their own plan and have to finally listen to the idea of the hanrandere, the hanrandere will usually respond with an "I told you so." or an equivelent statement and will then proceed to lead the group and put their plan in motion excitedly.

Hanrandere characters can also see their mistakes with time if their friends or love interest teach them that there are other ways to accomplish something for a better/different ending for those involved.

Hazukadere

Not to be confused with "Hajidere".

A "Hazukadere" is a character embarrassed about anything related to love.

Meaning

Hazukadere comes from "hazukashii" (恥ずかしい), meaning "embarrassing", "ashamed", "shy", "repentant", "confused". And "deredere" (デレデレ), which means "lovey-dovey".

Personality

They are characters afraid or embarrassed about anything related to love, relationships, and intimacy with someone.

Unlike hajidere, these will not be nervous by being next to the person they like, but by any mention or conversation related to love or lust, whether it is commented on by their love interest, friends, or even strangers. They are embarrassed about love itself, falling in love, and talking about relationships or crushes.

They will also be very ashamed of any talk about more intimate acts or when someone tries to make a move on them. This also includes perverted comments or actions by others around the hazukadere, even if it's just a joke or not directed towards them.

This dere type would be really embarrassed around hiyakasudere and charaodere characters and even more so around erodere characters. These dere types will be amused with the hazukadere's reactions and may tease them even more.

Hikandere

Not to be confused with "Shundere".

A "Hikandere" is someone who is pessimistic and insecure about love and liking someone.

Meaning

Hikandere (ひかんデレ) is derived from the word "hikan" (ひかん), meaning "pessimism" and "disappointment", and "deredere" (デレデレ), meaning "lovey-dovey".

Personality

Hikandere characters feel insecure about themselves, and often about love as well. They see themselves so inferior to others that they will try to get away from other people or apologize for anything, even more to their love interest. Due to their pessimistic personality, they do not think it is a good idea to enter a relationship with anyone. If deep down they want to, they will hold themselves back. They will not see themselves as being worthy of being loved by anyone.

They are very insecure and wonder if they really should be in a relationship with their love interest, thinking that they can't provide the best in a relationship to the love interest. They don't think they are enough for the love interest, and as a result, despite their love feelings, they will try to get away as much as possible so that the love interest can find someone better that can make them really happy, loved and protected. They are really insecure about themselves, and they don't think they can give the proper happiness or the good life their love interest deserves so much.

They will care so much about the love interest that they are willing to let the love interest go despite their own strong feelings of love. The problem with this dere type is that this sacrifice of them is not often necessary, and is a result of their own fears and doubts with their role in a relationship, always thinking in all the bad things that could happen or how their presence can affect negatively their love interest. The love interest must show the hikandere that they are truly delighted to be by their side and that no one else could replace the hikandere in their life, as they are the love of their life and with whom they are really happy with.

Despite this, the hikandere characters can sometimes think and act on their beliefs and disappear from the life of the love interest believing that this is really the necessary thing to do to ensure the well-being of the love interest, despite both of them not really wanting to let go of the other.

Some hikandere characters might not seem pessimistic until they believe they do something wrong. They'll act normal, for the most part, but when they make a mistake, they say self deprecating things, like "Sorry about that, that was my fault, I'm such and idiot.".

Some more severe cases of hikandere characters might freak out when they make a mistake. They may start apologizing, demanding that they are to blame, or they may breakdown, telling themselves that it's all their fault. This can be especially worrisome if the hikandere is the kind to blame any minor inconvenience on themselves, causing them to constantly breakdown.

Himitsudere

Not to be confused with "Usodere".

A "Himitsudere" is a character who usually acts very secretive to everyone except for their love interest.

Meaning

Himitsudere (秘密のデレ) comes from the word "himitsu no" (秘密の) which means "secret" and "deredere" (デレデレ) which means "lovey-dovey".

Personality

This type of character will always maintain an aura of mystery around them, hiding secrets with everyone except in front of their love interest. However, once the love interest gain their trust, they will hold no secrets with their love interest with whom they can even start to act extremely open and awkward, often over sharing.

Hitsujidere

Not to be confused with "Inudere".

"Hitsujidere" is a term for a character who is sheep, ram or goat-related, or is obsessed with them to the point where they start to act like one.

Meaning

Hitsujidere is devired from the word "hitsuji" (ひつじ), meaning "sheep", and "deredere" (デレデレ), meaning "lovey-dovey".

Personality

Hitsujidere characters tend to like sheep or even are a sheep, ram or goat. They might act sheep-like around people, with their love interest or when their "dere" side begins to act up.

This type of character tends to be innocent, sweet and shy due to the calm and defenseless nature of real sheep, so most characters with this dere type also show a dandere or deredere side. However, hitsujidere characters can have any other personality and dere type.

They are usually portrayed having or wearing ram horns. Those that are more human like tend to have fluffy white hair, just like wool, but they can have any hair color.

Sheep are also related to dreams and sleep due to their soft wool that looks like clouds and pillows, or because people usually count sheep to fall asleep, that is why some hitsujidere characters can also be designed as nemuidere or darudere, or even have some relation with the dream world.

Despite this, due to how goats are usually associated with the devil, mostly because of Baphomet, some hitsujidere are designed with a more antagonist role and with more onidere traits and personality. Instead of white, they are usually designed with black traits and even yellow or red goat eyes. Hitsujidere characters of this type tend to have a dark side, sometimes even hidden at first, acting like the dorodere archetype that fakes to be the "innocent sheep" in front of others.

Hokoridere

Not to be confused with "Megadere".

A "Hokoridere" is someone or more normally, a couple who are proud of their relationship and show it everywhere.

Meaning

Personality

These types of characters will be so proud and happy of their relationship or love interest that they will comment on it and show it all day. They are not afraid or ashamed to show their love for their special someone, acting lovey-dovey on any occasion and in front of everyone. This can tire out or disgust the other characters due to the excessive show of affection between the two lovers.

They will always be with the other person. But if for some reason they separate at some point, the hokoridere will not stop commenting on how they miss the other person and how much they love them. They couldn't live without the other person, and any second without them would be torture.

Normally, the two in the relationship will behave this way, as this dere type refers more to the couple instead of a single character. However, there may also be cases where only one person in the relationship behaves like this, behaving more lovey-dovey than the other.

There can also be the strange case where a hokoridere will think they are in a relationship with someone when this is not true at all, similar to a delusion type yandere.

A kyouhidere characters just need that special person to change this way of thinking. When they finally fall in love, they won't want to believe it at first, denying it completely to others and themselves, they will even try to get away from that person so that these new feelings do not appear again. Despite their attempts to avoid it, with time and the help of their love interest, they will finally realize that they really care about that other person, and that maybe love isn't so bad after all.

Kyouhidere characters can also have other personalities and even be really kind with others, but they don't like the idea of falling in love or talking about it with anyone.

Kyouzedere

Personality

Kyouzedere characters are strange to see, as they are more attracted to characters who reject them instead of those who show love to them.

They like the idea of their love interest being tough on them and of them hiding their real feelings. They will see their love interest as a challenge. They will set out on a conquest of their love interests heart, who always rejects them at first. It's for this reason that they can be seen going after many characters with tsundere, hinedere, or kitikudere personalities. Many times they will annoy and try to flirt with the person who always rejects them too, similar to a hiyakasudere.

One of the possible reasons for kyouzedere characters to act this way, is due to their popularity and having many admirers, and that when they see that there is someone that strangely doesn't pay attention to them, they become obsessed in conquering the heart of this person also.

The person who has been able to resist the kyouzedere character's charms will attract more attention to themselves than everyone else who falls easily in love with the kyouzedere. This is either because they're seen as a challenge by the kyouzedere, the temptation of the unattainable love of the other, or because they see that the one who has been able to reject them has the power to choose of their own free will, and eventually love them for who they really are on the inside without the influence of other superficial factors.

Not to be confused with "Oujodere".

"Maadere" is a term for a character who is a mermaid/merman or is obsessed with them to the point where they start to act or dress like one.

Meaning

Maadere (マーデレ) comes from the Japanese word "maa-" (マー) the equivalent of "mer-" in English, applied to beings that are fully or partly sea-creatures, and "deredere" (デレデレ), meaning "lovey-dovey".

Personality

They are characters that are mermaids/mermans, a fictitious or mythical half-human sea creature with the head and trunk of a human and the tail of a fish. Characters that aren't one but act or are obsessed with merpeople in some way can also be considered maadere.

Used mostly with female characters, but also found in male characters. They are usually depicted with a beautiful fish tail, enchanting heavenly beauty and a captivating voice that steal the hearts of many characters and love interest. Female characters are usually portrayed with seashell bikinis and loose long flowing hair that moves elegantly under the sea.

Apart from a top in the case of women and perhaps some accessories that are sea-related, maadere characters don't usually wear many more clothes in their mermaid form. There are cases that, being a mythical creature, they don't wear anything at all, as it's unnecessary for their kind. In this case, if some censorship is applied, the same long hair of the mermaid will cover her chest.

There are two types of merpeople, those created in a more fairytale fashion and those more close to their mythological origin and sirens.

The fairytale version is the more common and used in anime and other romance media. They are usually shown as elegant and graceful characters, similar to oujodere. Although some, especially younger characters, tend to be deredere. Despite this, they can have any other personality and dere type.

This type of maadere will sometimes hide that they are merpeople and they will disguise themselves as humans, especially if they fall in love with a human, but only to be accepted and gain the love of their special someone. That's why maadere characters can also be usodere until they can finally reveal their true form to them.

If they fall in love with a human, their feelings to this human and actions tend to be seen as a forbidden relationship. If that's the case, maadere characters will have a more difficult time when it comes to love and some will even have to let go of their love interest. Some maadere are willing to leave their "maa" side to live as another human besides their love interest for the rest of their lives. It could also be possible for the human love interest to decide to live as a merperson instead, or even be forced to turn into one by a yandere maadere.

The mythological variation is more dangerous than the fairytale one. At first they might seem to be attractive and enticing, using their charms to gain the heart of others, similar to a hiyakasudere, but only to lead others purposely to their doom using their seduction, just like dorodere characters. This type, however, is mostly used in horror or thriller media. Fantasy works can use either the fairytale version or the mythological version, sometimes they can even use a mix of the two types for a single character.

In a relationship, the love interest will normally protect the nakidere from things or people that can cause any kind of discomfort or that may cause them to cry.

This unofficial dere type is a candidate for deletion or needs a modification. If you are against its deletion say why in the comment section/talk page or change any necessary information.
Reason: Needs to explain more their dere side.

Not to be confused with "Undere".

"Otonadere" is a term used for characters that are treated as doormats.

Meaning

"Otona" comes from the Japanese word "Otonashi", meaning "meek", and "dere" comes from "deredere", meaning "lovey-dovey".

Personality

Otonadere is basically the anime equivalent of a doormat. They are quiet, submissive, obedient, gentle, and, in some cases, diffident. They simply let others walk all over them, never stand up for themselves even when they're aware they're being mistreated or taken advantage of, and agree with whatever they're told or hear.

They lack real opinions, ambition, and drive, instead making their aspirations out of what they're asked for by others and freely bending to the will of said others. There's a number of reasons why behind otonadere characters act the way they do; it could be due to shyness, insecurity, or longing for acceptance or companions. And while an otonadere does indeed have quite a hard time saying no to others, they can still grow a spine and learn to stand up for themselves.

What differs this type from undere is that, unlike an undere, an otonadere submits to everyone they come across, rather than simply one person. Otonadere characters don't even do this to gain anything, they just accept the bad treatment of other people because they're weak, kind or not in position to complain or even defend themselves. An undere character will do this willingly towards their love interest alone to gain their affection.

Meaning

Patorodere (パトロデレ) comes from the word "patoro" (パトロン) which means "sugar daddy" and "deredere" (デレデレ) which means "lovey-dovey".

Shugaamamiidere (シュガーマミーデレ) comes from the word "shugaamamii" (シュガーマミー) which means "sugar mommy", and "deredere" (デレデレ) which means "lovey-dovey".

Personality

This kind of character is not worried about lending money to others and their love interest to build up a good relationship with them. They will gives money to anybody at anytime, like if it weren't such a big deal, whether the other person ask for it or not, which can also make them undere and goudere.

They also have a tendency to pay much more for minimal things, this tends to surprise and shock those who witness such actions. This personality could be inclined to be used comically as well, showing the character wasting one or more bills while using them as handkerchiefs or simple papers.

This personality would be compatible with kanedere. While kanedere characters look for someone with money or status for their own benefit, the patoroderes / shugaamamiidere do the opposite, giving money and positions to others without thinking of the consequences.

They're seen as loving and sweetheart characters with a polite, caring and loyal personality. Even though they are often seen confident, chill and calm, they can get nervous, but they are most of the time shown being laid-back, straightforward and friendly.

Some could be darudere characters that are so lazy that they don't even take care of themselves, or even utsudere characters that don't care about their own state and happiness.

Some punndere characters might begin to take care of themselves once they find love, as they now care about someone else so it becomes important to care about their hygiene and that of their love interest. Once they fall in love, they will be more embarrassed about their state of hygiene and will try to be cleaner to impress, or at least not disgust and repel, their love interest. They don't want their love interest to feel uncomfortable because of them, some may even think that they are not worthy to even approach their love interest and taint the air their love interest breaths.

Some punndere characters might not be dirty, but for some reason, they still end up smelling bad or accidentally get dirty and stain their clothes often. Some can even be so poor that they can't afford clean clothes and a decent bath. They may even be forced to live in dumpsters. Out of concerd for the punndere, their love interent must help in providing them with a cleaner and more hygienic lifestyle.

Another type of punndere would be characters related to skunks, garbage, fishes or another species or element that smells pretty bad. In this case, the punndere would smell bad due to their biological nature. Then the love interest must bear the burden of, or even like the traits of the punndere, as this is part of them.

Some punndere characters could even start to smell bad, or even worse than before, when being close to their love interest or when thinking about them. This is similar to a hajidere in that a hajidere can't hide their nervousness around their special someone and they begin to sweat.

Sometimes, they are even seen as a role model for some who will admire them, possibly the main character.

Regarding their love life, these type of characters will not normally look for any partner because they will believe that the moment will come in due time if it does come. It's for this reason that the protagonist should probably take the first step to enter a relationship with a suzushiidere character. They will probably agree with a "sure", since it would not be of any inconvenience for them, but they can also reject them in a calm and friendly manner if they really aren't interested.

If they really like someone, their way of acting does not usually change in front of their love interest and they will treat their love interest similar to their other friends, that's why there are times when it will be difficult to know if they like someone or not. Although it's possible that they later reveal that they were actually really nervous to know what the other person had to say to if the suzushiidere character confessed to them.

Yanmere

"Yanmere" is a combination of "Yandere" and "Metadere".

Meaning

The name is a variation of the word "yandere", replacing the "de" of "dere" with "me" from "meta".

The "me" is a pun with the fact that a lot of these characters turn yandere for the own viewers or where viewers will experience first-hand confronting a yandere, whether as an obstacle, tool or even a main interest of them.

Personality

A yanmere is an omniscient character that turns yandere for someone and uses their meta knowledge and/or abilities to their advantage and to be with this other person no matter what.

Knowing that nothing is real, they will care even less than a normal yandere would about what could happen to the other characters and possibly even the world they are in. They will get rid of other characters if necessary without batting an eye, or even manipulate the world, viewers, or creators for their desired outcome.

These characters are really similar to metagire, as they are really dangerous to all people around them and even those people beyond due to their perception of reality. Unlike metagire, yanmere will become crazily obsessed with someone too, be it another character, or a real being, and they will act like this to be with this person or protect them, letting slip their awareness from time to time.

Even so, yanmere characters tend to be metagire most of the time too. A lot of yanmere characters will first turn "gire" once they discover that their world is not real, which will later turn and/or fuse to "yan". This revelation will mess with their heads, resulting in their new insane obsession to cope with it, normally towards a real person unlike the other characters they know that are not real either.

It's also possible for a character that was already yandere to already have or obtain "meta" powers later on, which they will then use for their yandere needs.

The first example of this appeared with the visual novel "Kimi to Kanojo to Kanojo no Koi (You and Me and Her)" from 2013 despite gaining more popularity with "Doki Doki Literature Club!" in 2017.

Trigger Warning!
This page contains mature content not suitable for all ages or information, language or images that can be sensitive to some people! Precaution is advised.

Content Warnings: Gire types are used for characters that instead of having a lovely or sweet side like the dere types, they instead have a dangerous, aggressive and even murderous side. Have this in mind before reading any of the following gire types.


What is Gire ギレ?

The suffix "gire" (ギレ) is sometimes added to these personality words instead of "dere" (デレ). Its meaning in words such as tsungire and yangire is that of "snapping" or "being mad" instead of "dere"'s "being in love".

The word "gire" comes from the verb "kireru" (キレる), which means "to snap" or "to be mad (at someone or something)". Basically to be full of it. To lose your patience. To be done with. To have had the last drop. To burst with anger. To get the last string holding your anger down cut. That's what "kireru" means.

The "gire" versions of personalities often have nothing to do with love or romance at all. People often attribute "-gire" as more violent versions of "-dere", but these two words aren't actually related, and could even be considered opposites. A character deemed "gire" doesn't even need to be in a romance or anything. They just lean towards aggressive, abusive or violent behavior.

The part of the word "kireru" that becomes the suffix is "kire", but it becomes "gire" instead because of a process called rendaku that changes the pronunciation of suffixes.

Amaigire

Not to be confused with "Amaidere".

"Amaigire" is a term used for characters that turn aggressive and murderous because of sweets.

Meaning

TBA

Personality

TBA

Bakagire

Not to be confused with "Bakadere".

Characters that, despite their little common sense and idiocy, tend to be very aggressive, especially when trying to "prove" that they aren't stupid to others.

Meaning

The word is a compound of "baka" (バカ), which means "stupid", and "gire" (ギレ), which means "to snap".

Personality

They can snap at others when someone makes fun of how stupid they are, or when others don't follow or accept the nonsensical and even crazy idea that the bakagire proposes.

Ironically, their way of demonstrating that they are smarter than what others think usually makes no sense whatsoever and further proves how little common sense they have, even to the point of damaging material and putting others in danger unnecessarily.

Sometimes they will not even realize what they have done and/or set into motion, but their stupid actions will negatively affect everyone around them, even allies and sometimes even themselves.

Some bakagire characters will work for the evil side without a logical or reasonable argument for doing so. This will make the viewers wonder what the bakagire is doing there as a bad guy/girl in the first place.

Byoukigire

Not to be confused with "Byoukidere".

Meaning

TBA

Personality

A person who acts sick or exaggerates an illness purely for the entertainment of watching others suffer over them. Other characters of this type inflict an illness or other ailments onto other people via drugs, powers, and the like, just to see them suffer.

Dangire

Not to be confused with "Dandere".

As far as one makes out, a dangire is a quiet person who snaps, cuts, swipes, steals and/or kills, regardless of whether they're shy or not, unlike a dandere.

Some of them could have been dandere characters who drastically changed to dangire after experiencing bullying for too long, or another tragic event that makes them finally snap.

Deregire

Not to be confused with "Deredere".

Characters that despite their innocent and adorable appearance are usually cruel and aggressive.

Meaning

"Deredere" means "lovey-dovey" and "gire" means “to snap”.

Personality

These characters are a mixture of cuteness and madness, which can make them even more creepy. Contrary to dorodere, they do not hide their true motives, at least not for too long or with those that are more distant to them. They will easily snap and show their cruel side. They will act cute even in their aggressive moments.

Some deregire characters can also become aggressive if someone doesn't tell them that they are adorable or when someone says the contrary. Ironically the deregire will force the other to admit how cute they are in a terrifying way.

Some deregire characters might also use their innocent appearance to their advantage to attract others to them, similar to dorodere but without having to act for so long, since their motives will be seen quickly once the person has fallen into the deception and trap of the deregire.

This shouldn't be confused with yandere, yangire or yandegire. Although it is possible for a deregire character to also be one of these "yan" types, they must look ironically still innocent and lovable on the exterior while performing these aggressive actions, which can be seen in a comical way or even uncomfortable if the actions are too cruel due to the strange mix of completely opposite elements.

Dottigire

Not to be confused with "Dottidere".

Meaning

TBA

Personality

Someone who usually exhibits unusual and weird behaviour. They snap and go completely insane, maniacal, and become lunatics.

They are characters that will show a demented behaviour when they finally snap. They will usually show a weird side of their personality even before turning aggressive. This could be their true self, or something may have pushed them to become completely deranged.

Eiyuugire

Not to be confused with "Eiyuudere".

Characters with an anti-hero complex.

Meaning

"Eiyuu" means "hero" and "gire" means "to snap".

Personality

Eiyuugire characters act like a hero but are arrogant and idiotic. Unlike eiyuudere, they do not need love.

They were rejected by a hero at some point, making them have an anti hero complex and act like a villain instead.

Hazukagire

Not to be confused with "Hazukadere".

"Hazukagire" are characters that don't tolerate others performing romantic and/or perverted actions. They will act aggressively to stop such behaviours.

Meaning

Hazukagire comes from "hazukashī" (恥ずかしい), meaning "embarrassing", "ashamed" and "repentant", and "gire" means "to snap".

Personality

They are characters who see any intimate act as indecent or even as a sin, and will snap upon seeing signs of this. They will try to stop those who perform these actions at all cost.

In extreme cases, they can harm or even murder to teach the "impure" a lesson and leave only pure and innocent people in the world.

Himegire

Not to be confused with "Himedere".

Meaning

TBA

Pesonality

A himegire refers to a character who wishes to be treated like a princess by everyone, similar to himedere but forcing this idea onto others, even if they aren’t actual royalty. Himegire characters have a princess complex and take advantage of their position, most of the time hurting others in the process.

They usually get any kind of work that needs accomplished to be done by other people. They give orders to everyone around them, threaten, and even order the deaths of those who fail in the assigned task or are opposed to them. They will put themselves first in every situation, not caring about others at all. They always want perfection and success everywhere, from everyone, and from themselves.

This kind of character can be very dangerous, because if you don't meet their expectations they can kill you. But, if you become better than them in something, they can also get rid of you. So it's best to try not to deal with these type of characters at all; which is rather complicated, considering that most of them control everything and everyone around them, including the main character.

Joudangire

Not to be confused with "Joudandere".

Meaning

This word is a compound of "joudan", which means "joke", and "gire" (切れ), meaning "to snap".

Personality

Characters whose jokes go too far, or who see incorrect actions and horrible situations as funny, sometimes even caused or worsened by themselves just to have a little laugh.

Kamigire

Not to be confused with "Kamidere".

Meaning

This word is a compound of "kami" (神かみ), which means "God", and "Gire" (切れ), meaning "to snap".

Personality

A kamigire is a person with a god complex. Kamigire would be a subset of kamidere. They both have a superiority complex and they both believe they are the perfect beings. The difference with kamigire is there's no love involved. Besides their god complex, they may also be sadistic. They have a tendency to believe that they are right and everyone else is wrong. As a "god", they have no need for remorse for their actions. They will suddenly snap if things don't go according to their plan, or if they get caught. They are often considered the mastermind, and will only take part in a romance if it fits their plan. Since they don't have their dere side, their admirer will simply be used as a tool or a slave.

Kanegire

Not to be confused with "Kanedere".

"Kanegire" are characters that only care about money and don't care how they get it, even if the process brings harm to others.

Meaning

The word "kane" (金) means "money" and "gire" means "to snap".

Personality

These characters will do whatever it takes to get money. They are corrupted characters who are willing to steal and do not care about leaving others in poverty due to their greed. They may even desire to be the richest person alive. In extreme cases they can even murder others for money.

Some can even act as kanedere characters at first just to take advantage of another character. Contrary to the dere version, the kanegire will never love the other person at any time, and some can steal or even get rid of their "love interest", just to keep all of their money for themselves.

Karutogire

A "Karutogire" is a character so devoted to a god and their religion that they go insane.

Meaning

Karutogire comes from the words "karuto" meaning "cult", and "gire" meaning "to snap".

Personality

Karutogire characters are even more extremely religious than Karutodere. They strongly believe in their faiths and won't accept anything else.

If they witness someone or something that they believe doesn't follow the rules of their religion, they will try to eradicate it and even punish "sinners". They may even kill for their god.

Similar to yandere, they will also hurt and even kill for "love", although in this case, love towards their god.

This type of character and the "religious horror" trope are often used in horror stories, mostly for antagonists and villains.

Kireigire

Not to be confused with "Kireidere".

A "Kireigire" is a character who gets obsessed with the beauty in the world to the point of insanity.

Meaning

Kireigire (綺麗ギレ) comes from the word "kirei" (綺麗) which means "beautiful" and "gire" (ギレ) which means "snapping".

Personality

There are several types of kireigire that will act differently in front of others or with themselves, but what they all have in common is their obsession with beauty in the world. They will seek fairness in others and themselves, pursuing it and even forcing it on others.

They will defind beauty according to their own twisted perception and then force it on everyone and everything else. This means that they are capable of physically attacking and kill for it, eradicating everything imperfect, and modifying the physical appearance of others to reach this perfect "beauty".

They will transform or dispose all the "ugly" beings to create a "beautiful and perfect world." These transformations are almost never consented to by their victims.

Some Kireigire characters will put themselves at the complete disposal of the "beautiful ones", and will do anything to get their approval or be even a little more like them.

Metagire

"Metagire" are characters that use their omniscient abilities in dangerous ways, even for the own viewers.

Meaning

Metagire is a combination of "meta" and "gire" (切れ), meaning "to snap".

Personality

They are possibly the most dangerous and terrifying type of character that exists and would exist, since they are not only a complete threat to all the other characters and the world they are in, but they can also be dangerous for the viewers, communities, and surprisingly their own creators. Even other sources, if they are strong enough.

They know it. They just know. They know that they are in a fictional world and that there is a world far beyond their reach. Once they realize this, they will snap and turn completely insane.

How this realization or wisdom affects them can vary. Some will use this to their advantage and try to learn how to manipulate the world and characters at their mercy. They will even try to manipulate viewers or creators to achieve something, either by tricking them into doing what they want, or by scaring them into doing what they want.

In more extreme cases, they will even try to get out into the real world. They will obsess over our reality to the point of insanity. In order to reach the other side of the screen, they will not mind getting rid of all the other characters or destroying the fictional world they are in at the moment. They also won't care if someone else from the real world should take their place instead... this means you.

Do you feel safe behind that screen, person who didn't even log in? Are you perhaps afraid of us knowing your real identity?

Narukigire

Not to be confused with "Narukidere".

A "Narukigire" is a character obsessed with their own beauty in a destructive way.

Meaning

Narukidere (ナルキデレ) comes from the word "narukissosu" (ナルキッソス) which means "narcissus" and "gire" (切れ), meaning "to snap".

Personality

Narukigire characters think that they are the most wonderful person in the universe. They will want everyone to treat them like the perfect beings that they think are. They look down on others with absolute disgust, similar to himedere and kamidere, but to a greater extreme, with contempt for the uglyness of all other people.

They will be so obsessed with their personal beauty, that they will even harm others or even kill others so that they remain the most beautiful and attractive being. They will also try to steal the "good looks" of others for themselves or modify the physical appearance of others for their own benefit. They will get rid of anyone who would come close to being just as beautiful/handsome as they think that they are.

Some narukigire characters will hide their horrible behavior, showing a false one of perfect elegance in front of others. They will seek in every possible way to remain always charming and young. If they don't see themselves as gorgeous, they will try to achieve it by all means possible. It's also possible that while trying to reach their goal of perfect beauty, they provoke the opposite effect and get more hideous due to their avarice.

They will not concern themselves with inner beauty, focusing instead on just the physical, as all narcissistic people do. For this reason, any attempt by them at expressing a "dere side" is merely an imitation instead of a true reflection of their character.

They may not even understand what the word "beauty" means, prefering instead to define it as they see fit. Those that do such a thing will become obsessed with looking like what they see as the most beautiful. This could lead them to looking odd, or ugly, or trying to look a certain way to get a reaction from everyone around, usually through hyper-stimulation.

Being so narcissistic will lead them to think that they should only have the best of everything, just as they are the best. They will try to get married with the most beautiful/handsome boy or girl only because of their perfect looks. They will not care about any other attribute of their romantic interest. They won't stop until they get what they perceive to deserve. This means that some can become yandere just to be seen with that person, regardless of what the other person might think of the situation.

Their "love" is only addressed to their own "beauty" and even the concept of "beauty" itself. If they want to be around others, they will desire to be around those sufficiently good looking. They will be obsessed over a person or a group of people just like a yandere would do but with their only purpose being the acquisition of the beauty that those others possess in some way or so that the narukigire can take advantage of those others and their beauty.

Nemuigire

Not to be confused with "Nemuidere".

A "Nemuigire", similar to a nemuidere, refers to a character who spends much of their time sleeping. The difference is that when they are awake, they become very aggressive, especially with those who have woken them up or refuse to let them sleep.

Meaning

TBA

Personality

Nemuigire characters tend to be very lazy and laconic in nature. Despite their calm personality, if they get bothered by someone or something, they can snap and become very dangerous.

They will usually get rid of those who do not let them feel comfortable in their precious relaxing time. They may even kill in some cases, just before going back to sleep, changing personalities abruptly.

It may also be possible that their more aggressive personality appears when they are sleeping, rather than the other way around, either because of sleepwalking, or because of their connection to the dream world.

Onigire

Not to be confused with "Onidere".

"Onigire" is a character that also has a demon complex. Unlike their onidere' counterparts, they hurt and manipulate those around them.

Meaning

"Oni" means "demon", and "gire" means to "snap".

Personality

Onigire characters also have demon complexes, but in the worst way. They are often arrogant, or exhibit morbid tendencies. In some cases, they may not even be a demon, but someone who others think of that way, or they might think of themselves as demons.

They humiliate and manipulate the ones they see as inferior to them. Many onidere characters, if they didn’t have the capacity to love, would fit into this archetype. They are often fond of killing and enslaving others to their unholy will. Unless protected by the divine, even the dead are not safe from an onigire character.

Oujigire

Not to be confused with "Oujidere".

Meaning

TBA

Personality

Prince-like character who snaps when one disobeys or doesn't treat them like royalty. They are a male type who shares the same energy as himegire.

Oujogire

Not to be confused with "Oujodere".

Meaning

The word "oujo" (王 女) means "princess" and "gire" means "to snap".

Personality

They are elegantly dangerous, and will perform aggressive actions calmly and even with a smile in when they finally snap.

On occassions, they will show their more aggressive personality hidden inside their refined demeanour. They even show this graceful side when acting on their "gire" side, which can be strangely hypnotic and astonishing, yet terrifying.

Not to be confused with "Tabedere".

A "Tabegire" is a character that turns aggressive and murderous because of food.

Meaning

TBA

Personality

They only care about eating. If something or someone steals or take their food away, they will snap and either hurt or kill the culprit. Those around them during their tirade may also suffer a similar same fate to the thief.

Some will kill to eat, but not out of a necessity (as we would expect of normal starving people), or because of a craving. In extreme cases, they can be or become cannibalistic.

Ungire

Not to be confused with "Undere".

"Undgire" are characters that, no matter who it is, they must follow someone's orders no matter what; even if their master is cruel and evil.

Meaning

The word is a compound of "un" (ウン), which is a short way Japanese people say "yes" or "maybe", and "gire" (ギレ), which means "to snap".

Personality

These characters would not know what to do without someone to follow and obey all the time. They live only for their master, and they don't care about the damage that this can cause to others. They can be a normal person one moment, and in the next, snap and act with no regrets and no free will when given an order by their master, even if it means hurting someone important to them.

They are so obsessed with following someone's orders, that if for some reason they lose their master, they will look for another candidate to replace them. The new master will be expected to act just as cruel as their previous master. In some cases, they will be so devoted to their old master that they will act on what they think the master would tell them to do if they were still with them. Kind of similar to a more dangerous and delusional goudere or undere.

Similar to a worship and delusional yandere, they are willing to kill for someone if told to do so. They usually only care about their master, and they feel nothing for anyone else; even themselves. They don't care if their master is just using them, they will remain loyal to them until the end. In extreme cases, even ungire characters will not be aware of the loss of their master and will still hear them inside their head, giving them orders; orders that they must obey.

Utsugire/Shungire

Trigger Warning!
This page contains mature content not suitable for all ages or information, language or images that can be sensitive to some people! Precaution is advised.

Content Warnings: Mention and depiction of depression.

Not to be confused with "Utsudere" or "Shundere".

"Utsugire"/"Shungire" are terms used for characters whose misfortunes and feelings of sadness become so strong, that to get rid of these feelings, they hurt others.

Meaning

The word is a compound of "utsu" (鬱), which means "depression", or "shun..." (しゅん。。。), a Japanese sound effect representing melancholy, and "gire" (ギレ), which means "to snap".

Personality

The sadness of these characters will become so strong that in the end they will snap. This sadness will turn into fury and revenge, making the utsugire/shungire unpredictable and dangerous to themselves and all those around them.

It's possible to see these characters performing cruel actions while crying with sadness or with expressions of regret. These actions may even make them feel worse about themselves, creating a vicious cycle of misfortunes.

Unofficial Variations

Tobokedere

This is a variation of "Bakadere".

A "Tobokedere" is a character who pretends to be stupid in front of their love interest.

Meaning

Tobokedere comes from the words "Tobokeru" which means "to play dumb" and "deredere" (デレデレ) which means "lovey-dovey".

Personality

This type of character will pretend to be stupid or a klutz when they're actually really smart, just to attract their love interest's attention and make it seem that they constantly need help from their love interest.

They could actually do this to hide some aspect of themselves, like an usodere, that they do not want their love interest to recognize or know. So they act stupid, cute, and innocent in the eyes of their love interest.

Namidere

This is a variation of "Bokodere".

A "Namidere" is a character who cries when they become flustered.

Meaning

Namidere (涙レ) comes from the words "namida" (涙), meaning "tears", and "deredere" (デレデレ), meaning "lovey-dovey".

Personality

Namidere is a shy tsundere, like bokodere, but rather than beating up their love interest when flustered, they begin crying, making their love interest feel bad. They are easily flustered, making them easy to pick on.

Namaikidere

This is a variation of "Himedere".

Himedere, but are less serious and more sassy and conceited.

Meaning

TBA

Personality

They act like they are a person of importantance, but are more kind than himedere characters. They also lack a true princess complex.

They tend to playfully tease their love interest and flirt with them.

Kondere

This is a variation of "Inudere".

"Kondere" is a term for a character who is a kitsune, fox-related, or is obsessed with them to the point where they start to act like one.

Meaning

Kondere (こんデレ) comes from the onomatopoeia "konkon" (こんこん), the sound a fox does in Japanese, and "deredere" (デレデレ), meaning "lovey-dovey".

Personality

They are characters that love and even act like foxes when their "dere" side starts to act up. While not necessarily having to be a kitsune or a fox to qualify, one does have to love, act, at least have, or wear, some fox-like trait in order to count as a kondere.

Kondere are usually depicted as sly characters with high intelligence that trick and deceive people with their cunning abilities, usually for their own gain, similar to dorodere. However, they will start to be more kind and compassionate to their love interest when their "dere" side starts to act up.

Much like the kitsune, kondere characters are often portrayed as wicked fox-like characters who love mischief and pranks. They are often seen as tricksters or sometimes even powerful characters who use their abilities out of greed.

They are usually designed having or wearing fox ears, a tail, and sharp teeth. Those more related to a kitsune will have multiple majestic tails. Physically, fox-like characters tend to be designed with orange or red fur/hair, while Japanese yokai and god type kitsune characters tend to be amber or yellow instead.

Kitsune have become closely associated with gods and demigods, and this can make some kondere characters act similar to a kamidere. Much like inudere, they will also act more canine-like in some moments when their "dere" side appears.

Ookamidere

This is a variation of "Inudere".

"Ookamidere" is a term for a character who is wolf-related or is obsessed with them to the point where they start to act like one.

Meaning

"Ookami" (狼) means "wolf" and "deredere" (デレデレ) means "lovey-dovey".

Personality

Ookamidere are characters that are wolf-like in appearance or have the behavioral traits of a wolf. While not necessarily having to be a wolf to qualify, one does have to love, act, have, or wear some wolf-like trait in order to count as a ookamidere. They can also be characters that love and even act like wolves when their "dere" side starts to act up.

They are very similar to inudere, but much more dangerous and aggressive. Evern so, just like an inudere, they will also act more sweet and canine-like in those moments when their "dere" side appears. They tend to be a more tsundere and kitikudere version of inudere characters, or act like other arrogant or distant dere types.

Ookamidere characters are usually depicted as bold and brave characters, but they are also more stubborn and hostile to people because of their nature. However, they will start to be more kind and protective towards loved ones when their "dere" side acts up. They are also really strong and loyal, and will go to great lengths to protect their allies and loved ones, including their love interest.

Many characters that belong to this archetype are usually werewolves. The ones that fall into this werewolf category are normally sweet at first but more aggressive during and after their transformations, instead of the other way around with common wolf ookamidere characters. Werewolf ookamidere characters will try to hide, like an usodere, their "ookami" side from others. They are afraid of harming their love interest and loved ones, so they distance themselves on purpose with the intention of protecting them.

They are usually designed having, or wearing, wolf ears, a tail, sharp teeth, and nails. Physically, wolf-like characters tend to be designed with gray fur/hair. Due to the many fights they engage in, some tend to have scars or other types of combat injuries, with worn-out clothes to make the character look more tough.

Omodere

This is a variation of "Kamidere".

A nicer version of kamidere, this character acts like a god but they are not arrogant and do not have a strong god complex. They can also be characters that are a deity, but behave kindly to other, lesser, beings.

Meaning

"Omo" means "god" and "lord", and "deredere" means "lovey-dovey".

Personality

Omodere characters act nice to others from the beginning despite acting like gods or being a deity.

Mazuidere

This is a variation of "Kitikudere".

A bully, but not a physically aggressive dere type.

Meaning

"Mazui" means "bad" and "deredere" means "lovey dovey".

Personality

Mazuidere characters will bully people and their love interest, but never physically. They only use words and behave competitively around others.

Suitsun

This is a variation of "Tsundere".

A "Suitsun" is a type of tsundere who is usually stern, cold, or hostile to everyone except to their love interest.

Meaning

Suitsun (スイツン) comes from the words "sui~tsu" (スイッ) which means "to switch" and "tsuntsun" (つんつん) which means "irritable" or "grumpy".

Personality

This type of dere acts coldly and aggressively towards the people around them the majority of the time, exactly as a tsundere would. In contrast to a tsundere, they act dere towards their love interest the majority of the time.

To avoid being emotionally vulnerable, a suitsun puts on a cold facade and pushes others away. They hide sorrow under a mask of aloofness and only expresses their emotions to their loved ones.

While tsundere and suitsun look similar on the surface, there's actually a number of differences between them:

  • They're abrasive mostly towards different people. While a tsundere is typically "tsun" towards their love interest, a suitsun's "tsun" side manifests towards people they don't know very well.
  • Suitsun characters are typically more deliberate than a tsundere character. While a typical tsundere pushes their love interest away out of confusion over their feelings, a typical suitsun is trying to create emotional distance between themself and others. To them, "tsun" is a deliberate facade.
  • While one might see a suitsun who bullies others in the typical tsundere fashion, a "true" suitsun is not interested in bullying or being hostile. They don't insult others with "baka!" all the time. Instead, they act cold and unfriendly so as to avoid unwanted attention.
  • Usually, tsundere characters and suitsun characters will have very different soft sides hidden beneath their mean streaks. A typical tsundere's meanness hides a sweet and loving side, while a typical suitsun is instead hiding some sort of vulnerability and/or pain.

Ajidere

This is a variation of "Tabedere".

Characters that like a specific type of food or drink.

Meaning

Ajidere comes from the word "aji" which means "taste" and "flavor". "Deredere" (デレデレ) means "lovey-dovey".

Personality

They are characters that are in love with one type of food or drink; ramen, pizza, rice, coffee, cakes, hot dogs, tea, ice cream, donuts, ...you name it.

The difference between this dere and tabedere is that they like only one specific food or drink instead of liking to eat in general. It's also possible for tabedere characters to also be considered ajidere if they like to eat a lot but are more in love with an specific food/drink.

Like tabedere, they can also be conquered by their stomachs, but more by giving them this special food or drink that they like so much. They will usually be seen eating or drinking what they like.
