->''[[{{Tsundere}} "Urusai, urusai, URUSAI!"]]'' [[CatchPhrase ("Shut up, shut up, SHUT UP!")]]
-->-- '''Lots of her characters listed below.'''

If you think of a {{Tsundere}}, think of this person. Yes. Rie Kugimiya is a woman very well known for Tsundere roles, moreso if the said character is [[TheNapoleon short]], [[ShanaClone tyrannical]], [[ACupAngst and has a flat chest]]. Fans started noticing her after she did [[Manga/FullMetalAlchemist Alphonse Elric]], but her role as [[LightNovel/ShakuganNoShana Shana]] is what made her popularity skyrocket. Like Creator/NorioWakamoto, Rie is also capable of [[ManOfAThousandVoices voicing a lot of character types]], including boys, or {{Yandere}}. She's also a skilled baton user, so yeah, she can kick your butt... but she'll likely get dere-dere afterwards in apology.

Unfortunately, the fact that producers (particularly Creator/JCStaff, the studio primarily responsible for her fame and typecasting in tsundere roles) LOVE [[PigeonholedVoiceActor pigeonholing]] her as {{Shana Clone}}s (her best forte), generates HypeBacklash amongst fans, accusing her to be unable to voice anything outside that. For proof otherwise, see the list below. Her {{Fan Nickname}} is ''Queen of {{Tsundere}}'' and [=TsundeRie=], which may either point on how she's pigeonholed in that role or how famous she is for playing it because she's that good at it. In fact, [[LightNovel/ShakuganNoShana Shana]], [[LightNovel/TheFamiliarOfZero Louise]], [[Manga/HayateTheCombatButler Nagi]], and [[LightNovel/{{Toradora}} Taiga]] are collectively known as the Four Tsundere Wonders.[[note]]The current candidate for the fifth Tsundere Wonder is [[LightNovel/AriaTheScarletAmmo Aria.]][[/note]]. Again, she can branch out into other types and roles.

[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?gl=US&hl=en&v=tf6baKNrC48 She is also available in GPS form to guide you]].

Her {{Tsundere}} characters will almost certainly have a painfully adorable CryCute moment.

Compare with Creator/SatsukiYukino, for a seiyuu of older/teen-aged {{Tsundere}}. While the English dubbing side does not have a "queen of {{Tsundere}}" to speak of, her closest American counterpart is Creator/LauraBailey as both Rie Kugimiya and Laura Bailey shared three roles ([[VideoGame/{{Persona4}} Rise Kujikawa]], [[VideoGame/TalesOfSymphoniaDawnOfTheNewWorld Marta Lualdi]], & [[LightNovel/BludgeoningAngelDokuroChan Sabato Mihashigo]]; which all three of them are [[PlayingAgainstType not tsunderes]] & strangely enough, they at least have ''some kind of'' connection with a character voiced by Creator/JohnnyYongBosch). Creator/BrittneyKarbowski shares the same typecast with Rie Kugimiya in terms of {{Tsundere}} typecasting, except Brittney Karbowski's tsunderes have more variety and many of her {{tsundere}} roles are usually ''not'' TokenMiniMoe like Kugimiya's are (and vice versa with Karbowski's TokenMiniMoe roles).

!!Tropes associated with the {{Tsundere}} characters voiced by Creator/RieKugimiya:
* ACupAngst
* CatchPhrase: Seen above.
** BigShutUp
** RuleOfThree
* ClingyJealousGirl
* CrushBlush
* CryCute: As a result of being a ShanaClone.
* DoubleStandardAbuseFemaleOnMale: Although Nagi is very subtle on the abuse part. The only exception to the rule, ''[[LightNovel/ShakuganNoShana Shana herself]]''.
* HairTriggerTemper
* HotBlooded
* LargeHam
* LittleMissBadass
* {{Ojou}}: Her signature characters (except Shana) tend to be blue bloods, or at least come from extremely wealthy families.
* OlderThanSheLooks
* RapunzelHair
* ShanaClone: Of which four stand out amongst fans, all of which belonged to shows produced by Creator/JCStaff and collectively known as the "Four Tsundere Wonders" -- [[TropeNamer Shana]], [[LightNovel/TheFamiliarOfZero Louise]], [[Manga/HayateTheCombatButler Nagi]], and [[LightNovel/ToraDora Taiga]]. [[LightNovel/AriaTheScarletAmmo Aria]] is also being billed as the "The fifth Tsundere Wonder".
* TokenMiniMoe: Usually the youngest character in the series.
* ZettaiRyouiki: Her tsunderes will ''always'' sport this. Bonus points if it is grade S like [[Manga/HayateTheCombatButler Nagi]], and [[LightNovel/AriaTheScarletAmmo Aria]]. Though it's not limited to them.

!! Tropes associated with Rie Kugimiya's work in general:
* CrossdressingVoices: While she is best known for voicing {{Moe}} girls, she has voiced boys on occasion, with the most well known cases being [[Manga/FullmetalAlchemist Alphonse Elric]] and [[Manga/TokyoGhoul Juzo Suzuya]].
* CryCute: A ''lot'' of her non-{{Tsundere}} roles also follow this trope.
* PigeonholedVoiceActor: No really, she's the best example when it comes to the Japanese voice acting block. To the point that in the [[http://dic.pixiv.net/a/%E9%87%98%E5%AE%AE%E7%90%86%E6%81%B5 Pixiv wiki article]] about her, her Tsundere roles are listed separately from her non-Tsundere roles.
* PlayingAgainstType: Anything having her voicing a non-{{Tsundere}} character falls into this nowadays (yes, including [[Manga/FullmetalAlchemist Alphonse]], even though she had this role way before her typecasting).
* RelationshipVoiceActor: A lot with Creator/YuiHorie, as well as some with Creator/SatoshiHino, Creator/SayakaOhara, and Creator/RomiPark.
* WomanOfAThousandVoices: Surprisingly, she's capable of a wide vocal range, ranging from non-{{Tsundere}} girls to young boys and even mature women. Her potential is a lot wider than studios and audiences tend to recognize, though still far from the extreme range of seasoned veteran "multiclasses" like the aforementioned Creator/RomiPark, who manages to range freely between the likes of Edward Elric and Nana Osaki throughout her career.
