Naturally, you're not only incredibly ''dense'', but childish as well.

Yes, just as there are tsundere in both manga and comics, there are tsundere in Western animation. So don't slack off!



* It's [[NotMakingThisUpDisclaimer hard to believe]], but '''[[WesternAnimation/TheGrimAdventuresOfBillyAndMandy Mandy]]''' is a tsundere. A valentines episode revolved entirely around her trying to break out of her ''deredere'' mode.
** There's also when Mandy finds out that Billy fell in love with a seemingly normal girl. Cue a shocked expression, a slightly saddened expression, then a total verbal beatdown of how desperate the girl is. If it were anyone else other than Mandy, one would call her jealous.

mode. There's also the moment when Mandy finds out that Billy fell in love with a seemingly normal girl. Cue a shocked expression, a slightly saddened expression, then a total verbal beatdown of how desperate the girl is. If it were anyone else other than Mandy, one would call her jealous.



* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' episode "Stealing First Base". Bart falls in love with Nikki, a girl in another fourth grade class. She's definitely '''Harsh'''. She goes from being upset because he stole a kiss from her, to wanting to be his girlfriend. He still can't figure her out by the end of the episode (though Bart did cry out, "I love you!" to her as she left).
** Bart actually got this a couple of times. When he ends up in Juvie, he becomes the target of a Gina, a tough girl who may or may not like him. Bart is as confused by this girl as he was by Nikki, though this one is more (physically) painful. She kisses him, punches him again, hugs him, cries, and then punches him again. And she's an orphan.
** Bart can qualify too. He's a {{Jerkass}} to everyone, except Marge and sometimes Lisa, whom he shows his warm side to. (Trying to cheer Lisa up when her cat died, making a heart shaped Indian Burn on Lisa, and so on.)
* ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'':
** Lapis Lazuli is bitter and rather harsh towards everybody but Steven. She eventually warmed up to Peridot many episodes later, though.

*** However, as of "African Lying Society", Heather and Alejandro are ''both'' tsundere for each other!
*** And finally, it's subverted in the last episode: [[spoiler: Heather's tsun side is real, but [[ManipulativeBitch it's clearly exaggerated to make way for a fake love confessional.]]]]



* Linka from ''WesternAnimation/{{Captain Planet|and the Planeteers}}''. No, the usually nice and cool girl doesn't like [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold Wheeler]] ''that way'' or so she says, but she's been [[AlmostKiss close to kissing him several times]] and is his ClingyJealousGirl whenever a female expresses interest in him, so…

* [[ButtMonkey Meg Griffin]] from ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' is Sweet. She is usually dere-dere, but acts tsun-tsun to people she doesn't like or people who usually piss her off.
** Her mother Lois Griffin also applies to this. Lois is usually kind and polite with others, but she has an aggressive and short-tempered side, usually caused by her husband Peter's stupidity, impulsiveness, and eccentric plans that often blow up in his face.

* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' has Twilight Sparkle: She was a Nice Girl around Celestia, Spike, and her family, but her newfound friends set her off.
** Princess Luna too, as seen in her Season 2 debut. Her emotions and personality paint her as such when only the audience (and then Twilight) get to see how hurt she really feels.

* Emily in the new ''ThomasTheTankEngine'' seasons. She's normally quite sweet until something sets her off. Usually when [[{{Mooks}} the trucks]] start giving her crap, Thomas acts like a BrattyHalfPint, James acts like a JerkAss, Gordon like an UpperClassTwit, or if she just gets [[IncrediblyLamePun ideas above her station]].

* A rare male example: [[TheMeanBrit Kyle]] from ''FanboyAndChumChum'' qualifies. While usually dismissing the titular duo's pushy friendliness with [[DeadpanSnarker snark]], he has occasionally shown to crave their friendship in reality, most prominently in the episode "Sigmund the Sorcerer".

* Zenblock of ''WesternAnimation/SuperNoobs'' is this towards the Noobs and the cultures of Earth as he is a type 1 non-romantic, male version of this. He doubts the Noobs experience and skill but warms up to them after they help him achieve his dream of winning the recruiter of the year award. As for the cultures of Earth, he is more hesitant in exploring it as his best friend, Memnock is childishly fascinated with exploring but Zenblock makes some exceptions if it involves candy or toys, or offers him competition against Memnock.

Added DiffLines:

* Lana from ''WesternAnimation/{{Archer}}'', ''especially'' towards the titular character himself. In almost every episode, she's angry, sarcastic, cynical, and extremely critical towards the rest of her colleagues (most of all Archer, due to their shared tumultuous, on-and-off relationship). However, she has shown a few moments where she's acted friendly, and even ''loving'' towards her team, a trait that's most prominent due to her [[spoiler: sudden pregnancy]] in Season 5.

** Rhonda could easily be seen as this for Harold, especially in "Operation Ruthless" and "An Egg Story".
