* The '''Tragic Past-class Tsundere:''' This poor girl has a DarkAndTroubledPast that makes understanding her feelings, let alone expressing them highly problematic for everyone, including herself. As such, approaching her is rather delicate, and if she approaches someone else, expect many misunderstandings good or bad. While violence towards the Love Interest is not required, it often occurs. Prime Examples include Satellizer of ''[[Manga/{{Freezing}} Freezing]]'', Yami of ''Manga/ToLoveRu'' (Rito has not one or two, but THREE Tsundere in his UnwantedHarem), and Taiga Aisaka from ''LightNovel/ToraDora''. The aforementioned Asuka Langley Soryu also turns out to be one upon reveal of her past.

# '''The Helper:''' Helping him with his chores. [[ThroughHisStomach Cooking for him]] is a favorite tactic -- even if she won't admit to it. Examples of Tsunderes who favor this tactic: Takako Ayase (''MidoriDays'', cooking) and Shinichi Chiaki (''NodameCantabile'', cleaning).
# '''The Trainer:''' Beating him in a session of TrainingFromHell or helping him out to beat an enemy in combat. Example of a Tsundere who favors this tactic: Evangeline A. K. [=McDowell=] from ''MahouSenseiNegima''.

# '''[[InterplayOfSexAndViolence The Violent Approach]]:''' Things get physical, [[DoubleStandardAbuseFemaleOnMale and not in the good way]]. The tsundere, in a bad mood by this point, will punctuate verbal abuse with plenty of good old fashioned violence. [[GroinAttack Kicks]], [[MegatonPunch punches]], [[ArmorPiercingSlap slaps]], and [[PervertRevengeMode other painful forms]] of [[UnprovokedPervertPayback beatdown will follow]]. Heaven help you if she's got a [[PaperFanOfDoom Paper Fan]] or a HyperspaceMallet; the most swashbuckling ones may even wield a [[WhipItGood whip]]. Example of a tsundere who favors this tactic: ''[[RanmaOneHalf Ranma 1/2]]'''s Akane Tendo. This especially applies if the violence mode is semi-permanent, rather than saved for bad moods; a young girl pulling hair and wrestling because [[NoSocialSkills she has yet to figure out non-violent ways of expressing affection]] would count.

# '''[[IShallTauntYou The Taunt]]:''' Not as common a tactic, but effective in its own right, is for the tsundere to constantly belittle the love interest with insults and putdowns. Favorite expressions include "{{Baka}}!", and "Urusai!" ("Shut up!"). A Tsundere who knows the guy's point of pride will not hesitate to insult him on that account, and when this tactic is employed nothing the guy can do will be good enough to impress her. If they have BelligerentSexualTension, VolleyingInsults often occur. This kind of tsundere might be vulnerable to a ShutUpKiss. If she [[AfterActionPatchup ever treats his injuries]], she berates him for acquiring them, or jeers at him for pained reactions -- often to not-gentle treatment. Example of a tsundere who favors this tactic: ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'''s Asuka Langley Soryuu. If the belittling is limited to [[DeadpanSnarker witty snark]] without blatant insults, then she might be included in the {{Kuudere}} subtype.

# '''Tyrannical Rule:''' While the above three forms of hostile behavior can be the result of anything, from NoSocialSkills, to awkwardly expressed emotions, sometimes it's made clear that they are just a bossy type of person, who likes to ''dominate'' their partner, like a slave-owner. A common trait among {{Shana Clone}}s.

# '''[[{{Kuudere}} The Cold Shoulder]]:''' In employing this tactic, the tsundere resolves to not give the man in question the time of day. If she does talk to him, responses will be monosyllabic. Pointedly ignoring him in conversation and disdainful looks round out the total freeze that she will lay on the hapless fellow. Example of a tsundere who favors this tactic: ''{{Genshiken}}'''s Chika Ogiue. If the Tsundere uses these tactics exclusively, she might be labeled a {{Kuudere}} ("cool-dere").

* The '''Discipline-class Tsundere:''' Usually a fellow student assigned some role of authority, hall monitor, school president, etc. who is rather strict in rules enforcement. She is quick to blame the love interest for breaches of etiquette and tries to punish him for it. This usually surprises him in that he's getting singled out for attention over others. Romantic interest seldom comes to mind as the reason (at least until he gets wind of further evidence). Prime examples would be Yui of ''Manga/ToLoveRu'', Asuna of ''OreShura'', Kyou of ''VisualNovel/{{Clannad}}'', and Misaki of ''Manga/MaidSama''.

Added DiffLines:

In addition, there appear to be three major specific "Classes", which while more common with Harsh may sometimes fit with Sweet.

* The '''"Wolf-Girl"-class Tsundere''' who can't or won't be honest about her feelings, is quick to judge her love interest (or the main character in a harem comedy) badly, and usually pelts him with violence at the slightest provocation, real or imagined. Bonus points if she calls him an idiot for not understanding her feelings outside his earshot. Prime examples are Nana from ''Manga/ToLoveRu'', Asuka Langley Soryu from ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' (though she also has traces of other types), Fumino from ''LightNovel/MayoiNekoOverrun'', Naru Narusegawa from ''Manga/LoveHina'', Louise from ''LightNovel/TheFamiliarOfZero''.
