* Cloche Leythe Pastalia, in ''ArTonelico 2'', is actively described as this by one of her rival's attacks, ending in a rant about [[HypocriticalHumor being honest]].
** Finnel, in the sequel, is described as a 'typical tsundere' by her in-game character profile. [[spoiler: It's actually played with a bit though. Her deeper Cosmopheres reveal she's an aversion of AllWomenAreDomsAllMenAreSubs, and acts uppity in the hope Aoto might get fed up and exert some authority over her]].
** The hero Aoto is also declared to be this in the same sequel, at least in his interactions with Finnel. With Saki he acts differently, but the closer he is to Finnel, the more of a Tsundere he becomes. [[spoiler: This is Lampshaded by one of Finnel's personae in the deepest level of her Cosmosphere, created as proof of their mutual commitment to one another. Said persona produces a castle for them to live in, carefully designed to force certain matters since both are Tsundere]].

* Creator/AkiraToriyama is [[WriterOnBoard a big fan of tsundere]], as at least one appears in every one of his works. It's therefore not surprising that they show up in the ''DragonQuest'' series a lot, since he does all the character and art direction on those games. Most notable are Maribel (Harsh) of ''VideoGame/DragonQuestVII'', Debora of ''VideoGame/DragonQuestV'' (''extremely'' harsh) Jessica (Sweet) of ''VideoGame/DragonQuestVIII''.

* Since the ''{{Neptunia}}'' series are an AffectionateParody of games and anime alike, it's a given that there'd be at least one character depicting this tsundere stereotype. The same characteristics are seen in IF, Noire, and Uni. In fact, the tsundere within the latter two gets painfully obvious, especially with Uni when she talks to Nepgear. And Uni looks downright subtle come ''[[VideoGame/HyperdimensionNeptuniaReBirth1 Re;Birth 1]]'', where Noire so so blatantly tsundere for Neptune [[EveryoneCanSeeIt she's constantly called on it]].

** Viconia in ''VideoGame/BaldursGate'' 2: her violent leaps between desperate-for-affection and [[DoesNotLikeMen misandrist bitch]] would be quite pathetic if it wasn't depressingly [[DarkAndTroubledPast well-justified]].
** Jahira in ''VideoGame/BaldursGate'' 2: she's a complainer to the point of being TheScrappy but warms up quite a bit if romanced.

** Annah: in''VideoGame/PlanescapeTorment'': a brash FieryRedhead who claims she's only pretending to be interested in you... while blushing furiously. [[spoiler: It's revealed that her attraction for you, a man who's much older than her and very much not a good candidate for a healthy relationship, is her torment]].



** Silk Fox in ''VideoGame/JadeEmpire'' is rather rude and contemptuous with regard to the player during their initial encounters (during their first encounter, she tries to kill him/her due to mistaking him/her for a mook); but her dialogue during the culminating romance scene is literally "come over here and kiss me before I remember who I am supposed to be." (That particular line was there because of Silk Fox being [[spoiler:RebelliousPrincess Sun Lian]], but given her earlier dialogue it has a double meaning.)

** In ''VideoGame/MassEffect3'', [[spoiler:Tali will act this way towards Garrus (provided you didn't romance either one), poking fun at him Andronikos Revel in ''VideoGame/StarWarsTheOldRepublic'' is a rare male example. Normally a very gruff, surly, bad-tempered pirate and telling him first-order BloodKnight, he can show a much warmer, more tender and loving side to a female Inquisitor who romances him. Not that she's just using him he would admit it at first, since when he first propositions getting together [[BlatantLies he insists]] that he's a lone wolf who's only in it for the thrill of bedding a Sith, and you need to respect that he can leave any time. The female Inquisitor [[YouKeepTellingYourselfThat can potentially sound amused as she agrees that he can leave any time]]. Over time his body. Garrus seems facade melts, though only to like it]].you, and he insists that you not tell anyone since [[SlaveToPR he's got a reputation to protect]].



** [[PlayerCharacter Aggressive Hawke]] is rude, blunt, impatient and sometimes violent to most people they meet. However, almost all the romance dialogue (specifically the heart options) involve tender/loving lines. Their tsun side is even stronger if in a rivalry romance, whilst their dere side comes out more in a friendship romance.

''You'' probably know all about this - since so many video games come from Japan, of ''course'' a lot of {{Tsundere}} archetypes are present. There are just as many {{Tsundere}} characters in Western games, though! Just read, already!

I wish you'd run out of coins so you can stop respawning and harassing me... Do something productive and get back to {{Tsundere}}!

* Starling/Sheryl from the "Cross Brigade"/"Silent Crusade" questline in ''MapleStory'' is like this towards the (male) player character, completely with classic tsundere 'It's not because I like you or anything' when she actully does something nice.

* Lyndis from ''FireEmblem 7'' can be seen this way through her SlapSlapKiss (tsuntsun) interactions with Hector of Ostia and her awkward, gentler reactions (deredere) towards either Eliwood of Pherae, her vassal Kent or Rath the HorseArcher. If you like your LesYay, there's her [[RomanticTwoGirlFriendship adorable and dere-dere]] dynamic with the ShrinkingViolet Florina...
** [[{{Shorttank}} Rebecca]] The Archer is ''very'' tsuntsun towards her childhood friend Wil and ChivalrousPervert Sain (showing extreme jealousy when they talk about their lady-in-liege, the aforementioned Lyndis, and even kicking Wil for it once-and for not remembering her from their childhood), yet in presence of BigEater and fellow TeamChef Lowen she is absolutely deredere (to be fair, he ''[[RescueRomance did]]'' [[RescueRomance rescue her once]]...). Her deredere side also shows in her supports with [[TheOjou Louise]], whom [[EvenTheGirlsWantHer she fangirls shamelessly]], and the other girl around her age in the army, [[RomanticTwoGirlFriendship Nino]].
** Dorothy from the sixth game is also a bit like this. She tends to nag and is very harsh with her ChivalrousPervert charge Saul (despite kinda [[BodyguardCrush crushing on him]]), but also seems to have problems with her self-esteem and [[{{Shorttank}} appearance]], at least until you support her with [[WellExcuseMePrincess Claine of Reglay]]. And in her supports with [[HorseArcher Shin]], she's actually so deredere that she comes off as a ''ShrinkingViolet''.
** The Pegasus Knight Karin from the fifth game is a tsundere, specially in her interactions with [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold Felgus]] or [[MagicKnight Eyrios]].
** In ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening Fire Emblem: Awakening]]'', the female Avatar comes off as one. She's a sweet, patient and understanding NiceGirl, but her supports with [[WarriorPrince Chrom]] make her sound almost like Naru from ''Manga/LoveHina'', which is a reaction she ''never'' has with any of her other potential husbands. However, there ''is'' [[GuideDangIt an alternate way to pair them]] that avoids this: [[labelnote:explanation]]For those of you who hate this archetype and don't want to see the Avatar engaging in it, you can game the system and marry Chrom while skipping over these conversations. Have the Avatar pair with Chrom enough that the C support is available, but '''''don't''''' activate it. In addition, make sure to ''never'' let him fight alongside any of his other potential wives (Sumia, Sully, Maribelle, and Olivia), which isn't super hard to do since there are several other male characters to pick from. At the conclusion of Chapter 11, Chrom will propose to the Avatar in a heartfelt scene that is '''''much''''' more consistent with her NiceGirl personality than the Tsundere reactions.[[/labelnote]]

* Princess Zelda in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSpiritTracks'' is a rare example of this kind among Link's allies. (Ruto, Tatl, Tetra and Midna are all Harsh) This Zelda may seem [[NiceGirl sweet as sugar and extremly polite]] when nothing is bothering her, but once ''something'' starts bothering here, you'd better pray that you're a) nowhere near her and b) not [[ButtMonkey that poor guy named Link]]... She has a pretty loud shouting-voice and when she has a devasting weapon on hand, while snapping into Tsun-Tsun mode, she ''will'' use that weapon on whatever is annoying her. Although it is ''pretty'' justified when the cause for her outburst happens to be [[VideoGameCrueltyPotential a certain whip]] [[VideoGameCrueltyPunishment of Link]].
* Ilia from ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess'' is very lovely and nice towards her childhood friend Link. But even that won't stop her from yelling at him if Epona is somehow injured. (Which she will be, no matter how careful you are.) But she does forgive him not long after.
