"Bocchandere" is a term for a character of high status who is spoiled and thinks they are better than everyone else. They like to flaunt their status in front of others, but after becoming fond of someone they will become very protective and use their status or wealth to help their love interest in any way possible.

Meaning of the Name

Bocchandere comes from the words "bocchan" (坊ちゃん), a nickname used by servants to refer to their young masters, and "deredere" (デレデレ), meaning "to be lovestruck".

Origin

Bocchandere was created on the internet in the Western community.[1][2]

Characteristics

Bocchandere are high-ranking members of society. This could include being the child of a wealthy and important family, or even the heir to a major yakuza organization.[3]

Personality

Bocchan Period

The high status of bocchandere characters causes them to become very arrogant and entitled. They overestimate their own self-worth and think they are better than everyone else. They could be described as "spoiled rich kids".

Bocchandere are incredibly spoiled and pampered. They have power and they are not afraid to show it off.

Bocchandere characters have a master complex. They like to boss other people around as if they are their personal servants and may even manipulate them into doing what they want.

Deredere Period

Despite the arrogant exterior of a bocchandere, when they become fond of someone they will become very protective of them and start to use their status or wealth to help their love interest in any way possible. After enough time of being with their love interest they may even start to realize that their status isn't everything and begin to lose the egotistical behavior.

Differences From Other Archetypes

Bocchandere is sometimes confused with kanedere—characters who are only attracted to someone if they have money or high status—but the difference is bocchandere are characters that have a lot of wealth and power while kanedere are characters who want a lot of wealth and power. Bocchandere characters could be considered the ideal love interest for a kanedere.

Bocchandere are similar to himedere/oujidere in that both are entitled, but himedere/oujidere characters will simply demand to be treated like a princess/prince and will not necessarily be spoiled or flaunt their status. Bocchandere also must be a high-ranking member of society, whereas himedere/oujidere often just 'think' they are.
