The Contenders

11 Sakura (Naruto) Sakura (Naruto) Sakura Haruno is the main heroine of the series "Naruto Shonen Jump!" and Naruto Shippuden. She is the only female ninja of Team Seven. Her family consists of her mother, Mebuki Haruno and her father Kizashi Haruno. Her clan is likely not very well known around Konoha and up until "Boruto: Naruto Next more.

She is NOT a tsundere. She is a blind fangirl.

I don't care of what haters say, she's amazing and I love her. - TatianaJackson

I love sakura shes amazing

12 Kurisu Makise (Steins; Gate)

Obviously one of the best tsunderes out there. Why is she even behind S A K U R A?! This list needs to be rewritten. SMH

13 Rin Tohsaka (Fate/Stay Night) Rin Tohsaka (Fate/Stay Night) Rin Tohsaka is a fictional character from the Japanese visual novel and anime series Fate/stay night by Type-Moon. She is the main heroine of the Unlimited Blade Works route.
14 Rukia Kuchiki (Bleach) Rukia Kuchiki (Bleach)
15 Kaname Chidori (Full Metal Panic)
16 Charlotte Pudding (One Piece)

That girl is the definition of tsundere.

The ultimate tsundere Queen for Sanji.

She is hilarious!

I love her

17 Asuka (Neon Genesis Evangelion)
18 Kagami Hiiragi (Lucky Star)
19 Erza Scarlet (Fairy Tail) Erza Scarlet (Fairy Tail) Erza Scarlet is an S-Class Mage from the infamous magic guild Fairy Tail . Erza starts off as a lone wolf and stays loyal to following the rules. As the story develops Erza changes into loving mage strong and independent. As her terrible past haunts her she ignores her friends' calls that they want more.

She is not a tsundere. Tsundere girls act so cold minded but they are still sweet inside. But I think erza is not such type of character.

20 Hitagi Senjougahara (Monogatari) Hitagi Senjougahara (Monogatari) Hitagi Senjougahara (戦場ヶ原 ひたぎ, Senjōgahara Hitagi) is a third-year student of Naoetsu Private High School. She is considered to be a frail-looking girl with an "incurable disease" and is distant from others.

Technically, she's not a tsundere, even though she calls herself one. She's more of a yandere to be honest. Crossed with a tsundere. If that makes sense. - Absolite


21 Maka (Soul Eater)
22 Kirino Kousaka (Oreimo) Kirino Kousaka (Oreimo)
23 Nanami Aoyama (Sakurasou no Pet na Kanojo)
24 Yuri Nakamura (Angel Beats) Yuri Nakamura (Angel Beats)
25 Yuri Plisetsky (Yuri on Ice) Yuri Plisetsky (Yuri on Ice)

He acts so douchey and mean, but in reality, he's just a huge softie! His determination is also admirable. There's a reason why I love this character so much. - Absolite

26 Misaka Mikoto (Toaru Kagaku No Railgun) Misaka Mikoto (Toaru Kagaku No Railgun)
27 Aquarius (Fairy Tail)
28 Videl (Dragon Ball Z) Videl (Dragon Ball Z)
29 Mine (Akame ga Kill!) Mine (Akame ga Kill!)

Mine is a pure bean who I love so much and needs to be higher

We need to bring up Mine! She is cute and she’s a though girl. Be careful around her.

30 Kyo Sohma (Fruits Basket) Kyo Sohma (Fruits Basket)

He should at least be in the top 10!

31 Louise de La Vallière (The Familiar of Zero)

Honestly the worst

32 Tsukuyo (Gintama)
33 Koneko Toujou (High School DXD) Koneko Toujou (High School DXD)
34 Kyoko Sakura (Puella Magi Madoka Magica) Kyoko Sakura (Puella Magi Madoka Magica) Kyoko Sakura is a fictional character from the 2011 anime series Puella Magi Madoka Magica and its related media.
35 Winry (Fullmetal Alchemist)
