• Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.



Here is a list of stereotypes, tropes, and personality types that originate from anime and manga. There are two ways for these tropes to appear in this category.

The Deres

Dere is a slang suffix originating from the Japanese word “deredere” (or “lovestruck” in English), which is used by manga and anime fans to describe a range of popular character traits or attitudes often attributed to anime characters, but this can also apply to characters outside of anime & manga if they exhibit the traits. Dere types describe characters who express their love for someone in different ways, or on different levels.

Tropes that Originate from Japan

Not every anime archetype must end with the dere suffix, some can end with a "gire", "en", etc. The suffix doesn't matter as long as the terms and word combinations originate from Japan.
