Dere character types are so common in anime that if you've watched even a handful of shows, you've probably seen at least one. "Dere" means "lovey dovey" and each "dere" type shows love and interacts with the world in a different way.

You may be familiar with the tsundere and the yandere, two of the most popular dere types. What you might not know is that there is a whole world of anime dere types out there, including the shy and demure dandere, the marriage-obsessed kekkondere, and the alcohol-loving yottadere. These character archetypes appear in every anime, though the more complex characters will often fit into more than one category.

Let's learn about all the different varieties of dere anime characters.
