->''[[{{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 probably 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 probably she gets dere-dere afterwards in apology.

Unfortunately, the fact that producers (particularly JCStaff, the studio primarily responsible for her fame and typecasting in tsundere roles) LOVE [[PigeonholedVoiceActor pigeonholing]] her as {{Shana Clone}}s (her best forte), she receives 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]] Recently, she seems to be branching out into different types.

[[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}}.

* Rizel Iwaki (''Manga/{{Rizelmine}}'') -- A sort-of-childlike character, but about as far from tsundere as it gets. She also plays four other characters who show up near the end of the series, leading to many [[TalkingToHimself Talking To Herself]] moments.

!!Tropes associated with the {{Tsundere}} characters voiced by RieKugimiya:
* ACupAngst
* {{Badass}}: Several roles but most especially [[LightNovel/ShakuganNoShana Shana]].
** LittleMissBadass
* 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
* {{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 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 "[[TheSixthRanger Fifth Tsundere Wonder]]".
* 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:
* 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 Romi Park, who manages to range freely between the likes of Edward Elric and Osaki Nana throughout her career.
