Types of “dere”
The “dere” is a commonly used way to describe a particular Japanese character archetype in anime or other works. The kind of “dere” they are usually affects their interactions with the other characters. Some, such as Tsundere, are so common you will find one in almost every anime and some of these are much rarer.
I decided to compile a list of as many of these as I could find, with their correct definitions. I’m sure there are more, so feel free to comment and let me know so I can add them. References are listed below.
