Worst Tsundere Female Anime Characters

I'll admit, sometimes I'm rather picky about my tsundere characters. On one of my lists, Worst Anime Cliches, tsundere is in the top ten. Then I remembered a whole bunch of different tsunderes that I didn't like. Yes they're plenty of good tsundere characters but they're some really bad ones too. I'm choosing females cause I can name many from the top of my head. I'll leave in ten suggestions and the rest is up to you.

The Top Ten

1 Louise de La Vallière (The Familiar of Zero) Louise de La Vallière (The Familiar of Zero)

It didn't matter which voice actress played her, I wanted her to shut up. She's like if Rarity from My Little Pony was overdosed with her drama queen attitude. From whipping the main character with a riding crop, kidnapping him from home and treats him like a tool. I wouldn't mind if she was a villain but she's the main love interest. - RoseRedFlower

You know, if Louise was the boy and Saito was the girl, her and this anime would have a completely different reputation. - TwilightKitsune

(her by speaking Louise) - listotaku17

She's very similar to Taiga Aisaka, but at least Taiga Aisaka didn't have a crush on Ryuji yet and she appreciated Ryuji's actions, unlike her. - listotaku17

2 Dokuro Mitsukai (Bludgeoning Angel Dokuro-Chan) Dokuro Mitsukai (Bludgeoning Angel Dokuro-Chan)

I think Panty and Stocking are better angels than her. And they swear all the time! This girl turns Kusakabe into bloody soup, she impales him, she decapitates him, and dismembers him. Yet we're supposed to find it cute. Yeah, the plot was already dumb enough but her obnoxious attitude is what made this show even worse. - RoseRedFlower

3 Kirino Kousaka (Ore no Imouto) Kirino Kousaka (Ore no Imouto)

She's 100% tsun and 0% their. Considering her bad attitude, I wouldn't be surprised if she wasn't human. Any human being would have left this brat behind. She makes obsessed anime fans look good. - RoseRedFlower

Ew, she's that one girl from that incest anime... - HoneyClover

4 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 ...read more.

Who didn't see this one coming? Pretty much anyone who isn't Sasuke experiences her tsundere side. She smacks Naruto constantly even though he saved her and the village. Seriously, after Pain destroyed the village, the first thing she thinks to do to Naruto is call him reckless and slap him. ARGH! - RoseRedFlower

Sakura is not tsundere. When he hits Sai or Naruto it's not because she likes them. It's because she just enjoys abusing people. The only one she likes is sasuke and to sasuke she is like a pathetic begger

Sakura is a cry baby and a big submissive doormat. She's the most trash but not tsundere...

Sakura is not tsundere. She is a bitch to people she thinks are ugly like Rock Lee and begging dog to the person she likes sasuke refusing to accept his rejections

5 Aoi Sakurai (Rail Wars) Aoi Sakurai (Rail Wars)

She hates men because reasons. And even wanted to kill the MC, yet we're supposed to find this as charming? NOPE. - RoseRedFlower

6 Julis Riessfield (Asterisk War) Julis Riessfield (Asterisk War)

She's a tsundere with no given reason as to why. One of the worst ways to have a tsundere in your show. - RoseRedFlower

7 Rei Miyamoto (Highschool of the Dead) Rei Miyamoto (Highschool of the Dead)

She's always arguing with other characters and says things without even thinking. She leads on the MC but doesn't do anything to progress their relationship. Yet gets extremely jealous of Takashi and Saeko all the time. - RoseRedFlower

Enough said.

8 Kagome Higurashi (Inuyasha) Kagome Higurashi (Inuyasha) Kagome Higurashi is the main female protagonist of the anime/manga series Inuyasha, equaled only in importance by Inuyasha himself.

I hate how the show presents her. A perfect girl who can do no wrong when in reality she's the opposite. I couldn't stand her rude behavior to her brother, grandfather, Inuyasha etc. - RoseRedFlower

I don’t like her and Kikyo. - MilkTae

She’s not bad or good she’s just a typical generic tsundere - Animeme

9 Erina Nakiri (Food Wars) Erina Nakiri (Food Wars)

I really don't like this character. She came off as way too arrogant and seems to let her emotions cloud her judgement all the time. Her personality just got tiresome after awhile. - RoseRedFlower

Just very rude.

I like this Anime
I admit I don't like this characters but I like her Characters Design though.

10 Taiga Aisaka (Toradora!) Taiga Aisaka (Toradora!)

She's the most abusive tsundere I've seen thus far, yet she's so overrated. I don't get it. Do her blind fans actually like destructively and violently abusive women like her? She's also pathetically weak and useless, can't help herself in the beginning, can't do anything without Ryuji helping her ungrateful ass. She deserves all the hate in the world. I'm proud to hate her with a burning passion. - Anti-tsundere

She's actually one of the best. - Tia-Harribel

So, you actually like abusive and destructive women who, for no reason, treat the main character like trash and yet have the audacity to ungratefully expect favors from the main character? - Anti-tsundere

It's hard to feel bad for her when she's so violent in the beginning to Ryuji. - Cyborg009

The Contenders

11 Naru Narusegawa (Love Hina)

For me, louise is a bit better tsundere that her. - NelMemazo

Ladies and Gentlemen this is the reason we have some of these "ladies" (little girls) on this list, and also why we have this list. She is so abusive to Keitaro, that it becomes a second nature. But it's not just Keitaro she's abusive to, she punches a guy, he looks like Keitaro, for not being attracted to her and doesn't apologize when she realizes her mistake.

12 Chi Chi (Dragon Ball Z) Chi Chi (Dragon Ball Z) Chi-Chi is an anime fictional character from the anime series, Dragon Ball Z, created by Akira Toriyama.

She has the tsundere moments, that's for sure. Being loving towards Goku and then getting angry with him. My only problem with her is how annoying the nagging can get. - RoseRedFlower

13 Mitsuba Sangu (Seraph of the End) Mitsuba Sangu (Seraph of the End)

Shinoa is so much better than her! - MilkTae

14 Seraphim (Is This A Zombie?) Seraphim (Is This A Zombie?)

Honestly, she just makes me so angry with her constant loud proclamations of Ayumu being a pervert and a maggot...

15 Haruhi Suzumiya (Haruhi Suzumiya) Haruhi Suzumiya (Haruhi Suzumiya) Haruhi Suzumiya is the title character and female protagonist of the Haruhi Suzumiya series created by Nagaru Tanigawa.

If Kyon had never paid attention, the anime would be different. Because haruhi is better alone. - NelMemazo


16 Ginko Sora (Ryuuou no Oshigoto!)

I'm glad she got turned down for a kiss, she very abusive and threatening. Can she wait a moment to realize that her actions are very rude and abusive, hell her actions are consequences, even the mc thinks that when she tries to kiss, mc took it as a joke and walks away. Don't even call the MC idiot dumbass lol

17 Kirie Kojima (Girls Bravo) Kirie Kojima (Girls Bravo)
18 Chitoge (Nisekoi) Chitoge (Nisekoi)

She’s ungrateful to Raku and abusive. She hits him almost every time. Onodera are much better than her. Chitoge is so rude! - Angelatran
