The Shana Clone is a character archetype originating in Japanese {{Light Novel}}s, {{Manga}} and their {{Anime}} adaptations, begun by the popularity of the character [[FountainOfExpies Shana]] from the LightNovel series ''LightNovel/ShakuganNoShana''.

The Shana Character Archetype includes the following:
* The character is a teenage girl, though sometimes younger, with an often childlike body-type, meaning she is flat-chested and usually {{older than she looks}} (typically by being quite short in stature), often resulting in MistakenAge, a NapoleonComplex and ACupAngst.
* The character has long, ''at least'' waist-length RapunzelHair, usually unkempt or tied into GirlishPigtails. The actual color is less important, but blonde, pink or [[FieryRedhead red]] are the most common.
* The character wears dresses, usually {{Joshikousei}}, or long ElegantGothicLolita style dresses (the latter probably inspired by [[LightNovel/{{Gosick}} Victorique]]), and ZettaiRyouiki at ''Grade A'', often qualifying for ''Grade S''[[note]]In fact, the "Grade S" classification of ZettaiRyouiki is based on a similar concept to this trope, though that requires only any GirlishPigtails and any kind of {{Tsundere}} behavior. Also note that the ''Grade S'' classification was popularized by [[VisualNovel/FateStayNight Rin Tohsaka, who doesn't fall under this trope]][[/note]], though if her dress is a long one, it may be difficult to identify the grade and may simply appear to be full tights.
* The character is a heavily Type A {{Tsundere}}, infamous for her use of the [[DoubleStandardAbuseFemaleOnMale violent approach]]. She physically assaults her LoveInterest on a regular basis, sometimes with little to no provocation. To some extent this attitude may stem from a HairTriggerTemper and [[NoSocialSkills awkward social skills with boys]], but hers is also often a result of an [[TinyTyrannicalGirl inherently dominant, bossy personality]], almost to the point of evoking the attitude of a {{Dominatrix}}.
* The character is the female lead of the work, and the main LoveInterest of the male lead, their relationship heavy on the BelligerentSexualTension and CannotSpitItOut. Often there is a SupportingHarem of other girls as rivals.

Though perhaps not the actual TropeMaker, Shana certainly [[TropeCodifier popularized]] this specific combination of characteristics and they are becoming an extremely common archetype, especially in {{Light Novel}}s. This series of characters even had direct {{shout out}}s to the original, effectively identifying them as {{Exp|y}}ies of Shana, but then came some ''other'', indirectly related characters following the formula, resulting in the formation of a whole new archetype rather than a collection of Expies, in much the same way as the ReiAyanamiExpy came to be.

Adding to the archetype are a number of more 'optional' traits which have come to be associated with these characters, some of which did not originate with Shana herself:

* The character is voiced by Creator/RieKugimiya, who after voicing Shana in the anime adaptation of ''Shakugan no Shana'' [[PigeonholedVoiceActor went on to voice a series of similar characters]], further emphasizing the similarities (five of the seven characters in the page image are voiced by her). Creator/AyanaTaketatsu is also a popular choice though.
* The character addresses the LoveInterest in some extremely demeaning manner, such as treating him as her property, as being lower than human, or lower in status, even using belittling names like "dog", "slave", or "toy" instead. Shana used to refer Yuuji as a Torch and telling him he was almost nothing, Louise calling Saito a Dog, Taiga calling Ryuuji a Dog, Aria calling Kinji a Slave and many more examples.
* The character may be a BigEater, especially of [[TrademarkFavoriteFood a certain kind of food]], often sweet breads (Shana's was melon bread).
* The character [[TheOjou comes from a wealthy family]], justifying her high-and-mighty attitude towards the LoveInterest, who is often a "commoner". This probably started with [[LightNovel/TheFamiliarOfZero Louise]].
* The character may carry some type of weapon, commonly a {{katana|sAreJustBetter}} or {{whip|ItGood}}, which she uses to beat the male LoveInterest with when he defies her. ([[LightNovel/TheFamiliarOfZero Louise]] actually has a riding crop, which she sometimes uses to whip her familiar/LoveInterest, Saito.)
* If she gets an {{Animal Motif|s}}, her animal will probably be the [[CatsAreMean cat]], while her {{Flower Motif|s}} will likely be the red rose (beautiful, but has thorns).
* The quote provided on the top of the page ("Urusai! Urusai! Urusai!"/"Shut up! Shut up! [[BigShutUp Shut up!]]") will often be uttered by these characters.
* The character has some sort of supernatural ability/is inhuman. [[LightNovel/ShakuganNoShana Shana]] is a Flame Haze, [[LightNovel/TheFamiliarOfZero Louise]] is a mage, and Lotte is a succubus, for example.
* The character wears childish and/or GoofyPrintUnderwear.

Compare ReiAyanamiExpy and CharClone for a similar phenomenon. This trope is a subtrope of both TinyTyrannicalGirl and {{Tsundere}}.


[[folder:Anime & Manga]]
* The TropeMaker and TropeNamer Shana is the FieryRedhead ActionGirl who created this archetype and made it famous in ''LightNovel/ShakuganNoShana''. The rousing success of her character has since inspired many writers to imitate or outright copy her personality, [[FountainOfExpies as seen in the following examples]]. Kugimiya Point: 1. Interestingly, Shana, whose {{Tsundere}} nature is [[{{Tykebomb}} justified]], softens over time through CharacterDevelopment, to the point that she is no longer a {{Tsundere}} by the end of the series. She is quite open about her feelings towards her LoveInterest Yuji, and not all abrasive or disrespectful to him. Even from the start, she rapidly shed many of the attributes enumerated above, some of which were not very strong in the first place. By the end of the first story arc she no longer views or treats Yuji demeaningly (abrasively is a different matter, but even that subsides), and she was very rarely physically abusive, only once striking him in the first season of the anime (outside of her rigorous combat training). [[spoiler: he does inflict physical injury in Season 3, because Yuji spends the bulk of the season as Shana's WellIntentionedExtremist enemy who is not hesitant to strike back. They both still love each other, and both are convinced that they are doing the right thing for the other.]]
* Mine from ''Manga/AkameGaKill'' fills out just about every credential, including being the love interest to the (alleged) lead character.
* {{Downplayed}} in ''Astarotte no Omocha''. Astarotte mostly fits that archtype but rarely uses physical violence on Naoya or insult him. Kugimiya Point: 2
* ''LightNovel/ACertainMagicalIndex'' has two:
** Index Librarium Prohibitum is mildly {{Tsundere}} for Touma, has a huge appetite, has long sky-blue hair, is pretty petite, and has a habit of biting his head whenever she gets angry. As far as examples of this trope go, Index is pretty tame.
** More as an ally[[note]]post-HeelFaceTurn, that is, and even then she once quipped that she "loves this guy"[[/note]] than a potential love interest for Touma ([[ChickMagnet which makes her part of a very small minority in the series]]), is Agnese Sanctis, a petite [[ChurchMilitant Battle Nun]] who has some {{Tsundere}} interactions with Touma. Kugimiya Point: 3
* In ''Manga/TheComicArtistAndHisAssistants'', Kuroi Sena has all but the ZettaiRyouiki and the status as the hero's primary love interest. Small for her age, blonde hair to the ankles, hair-trigger temper with extreme violence[[note]]though too weak to actually do damage[[/note]], short skirts. Kugimiya point: 4
* Mina Tepes of ''Manga/DanceInTheVampireBund'' has all the traits, except she's more of a Type B {{Tsundere}}.
* Nagi Sanzen'in of ''Manga/HayateTheCombatButler'' shows all the signs except she's slightly friendlier to her LoveInterest, making him into her toy with [[DraggedIntoDrag crossdressing cosplay]] and having him be her KnightInShiningArmor. Kugimiya Point: 5
* Ririchiyo Shirakiin of ''Manga/InuXBokuSS'' is a different take on the archetype. She's a rich, childlike fifteen-year-old Type A {{Tsundere}} with black RapunzelHair and ZettaiRyouiki. Unusually, she dislikes her common approach to people and is trying her best to improve her social interactions. Also, her LoveInterest, who specifically ''asks'' her to call him a dog and treat him like one, is such an ExtremeDoormat she actually finds it very difficult to do so.
* In ''Manga/{{Isuca}}'', main character Sakuya Shimazu fits the bill perfectly. Ironically, while she treats the hero like dirt, [[IKnowYourTrueName he early on obtains the power to make her do whatever he wants.]]
* Despite debuting before the rise of Shana, Alisa Bannings of ''Franchise/LyricalNanoha'' fits the archetype: a rich, long-haired {{Tsundere}}, especially in ''Manga/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaInnocent'', where she gets a mini-skirted MagicalGirl form equipped with a [[PlayingWithFire flaming]] [[WhipItGood whip]] [[EmpathicWeapon Device]] called [[LightNovel/ShakuganNoShana Flame Eyes]]. Kugimiya point: 6
* Klan Klan of ''Anime/MacrossFrontier'' fits the bill when in her Micronian form, though her LoveInterest is TheLancer rather than TheHero. When macronized, by contrast, she's [[AttackOfTheFiftyFootWhatever over thirty feet tall]], [[BoobsOfSteel very stacked]] and somewhat more cool-headed (though she does smack Michel around once when he's in his mecha).
* ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'' has two:
** Evangeline Athanasia Katherine [=McDowell=]: a [[RapunzelHair long-haired]] 500-year-old ElegantGothicLolita stuck in a ten-year-old body, often wearing ZettaiRyouiki, and is a very strong type A {{Tsundere}}. She compliments Negi twice in 300 chapters, and usually tortures him via TrainingFromHell. Any hint of her ''dere'' side is quickly called out by Chachamaru and followed by a fast "I do not!".
** Anna Yurievna Cocolova: an eleven-year-old [[GirlishPigtails twin-tailed]] {{Tsundere}} and [[PlayingWithFire literal]] FieryRedhead. While she and Negi talk to each other on a FirstNameBasis, she is still very violent when it comes to things concerning him -- her first reappearance (Chapter 170) has her deliver an "[[CallingYourAttacks Anya Flame Kick]]" to Negi for not coming home soon.
* ''Manga/MakenKi'': Himegami is {{tsundere}}, [[http://readpanda.net/Maken-ki/58/4/ pettanko]], usually styles her hair into a long pair of pigtails, and typically dresses in [[ElegantGothicLolita gothic lolita fashion.]] It's later revealed that she's the daughter of [[spoiler: Yamato no Orochi]]; making her [[BlueBlood royalty]] ''and'' [[spoiler: a demi-goddess]]. So she naturally possesses abnormally [[FunctionalMagic high-level Element]] and wields Yasakani, which has the power of [[spoiler: [[http://readpanda.net/Maken-ki/23/36/ the 8 original Maken combined]]]]. Meaning, she's also an {{action fashionista}} and a LadyOfBlackMagic. However, she subverts the trope since she isn't much shorter than the rest of the cast and she's Usui's [[PeerlessLoveInterest love]] [[http://readpanda.net/Maken-ki/65/24/ interest]], rather than [[SupportingProtagonist Takeru's.]]
* Downplayed with Alice of ''Manga/PandoraHearts''. She's a Type A {{Tsundere}} with RapunzelHair who refers to Oz as her manservant and property. However, having to survive on her own within [[EldritchLocation the Abyss]] as well as her lack of memories and knowledge about the outside world seem to have contributed to her brash personality, and [[CharacterDevelopment as she becomes more confident in herself and others]], her Type A tendencies start to relax. She is also rarely physically violent toward Oz and is more often than not quite affectionate to him, which he perceives as her being honest with her emotions. It's worth noting that Oz is [[TheNicknamer one of the few people she refers to by name]] and that her claims that he is her property [[spoiler:aren't entirely unfounded and may be the result of resurfacing memories in her subconscious mind]].
* Karin Minato of ''Shippai Kinshi! Kanojo no Himitsu wa Morasanai!'' would be this, but since anger triggers a PottyEmergency for her, she doesn't get many opportunities to hit Syou Shimizu ([[IncestSubtext who only has eyes for his younger sister Hijiri anyway]]). Interestingly, while she has no problems confessing her love to Syou when she falls for him (unlike most examples), she's equally capable of reverting to status quo soon after.
* Rima Mashiro of ''Manga/ShugoChara''.
* Hazuki from ''Manga/TsukuyomiMoonPhase'': she's approximately twelve to fourteen (age not given in the manga) with major ACupAngst developing over time, frequently dresses in the Lolita fashion style, has long hair, and is a major Tsundere toward hero Kouhei. On top of that, she insists for a long time that Kouhei is just her slave, she can get very intense about food (going so far as to sit still for hours just to catch the crows that stole her snack), and she's the princess of the vampire race.
* Mio Aoyama of ''Manga/TheWorldGodOnlyKnows'' is a deliberate homage to this trope, and is most likely based on Nagi.

[[folder:Fan Works]]
* Shinju Miwa from ''Fanfic/ShiningPrettyCure''. She's actually more snarky and less violent than most examples.
* Sera Himekawa from ''Fanfic/PrettyCureStrangeHappenings'' is an interesting variation. She's 5'6" (quite impressive for this archetype) and is a rare {{Bifauxnen}} example of this trope, going so far as to wear her school's male uniform. She's also quite busty as Cure Kyuketsu and ONLY as Cure Kyuketsu. As a civilian, she's a washboard like the other examples. Her personality is basically a cross between [[LightNovel/ShakuganNoShana Shana]] and [[FanFic/ShiningPrettyCure Shinju]]. She also fits several aspects of this, including being a {{Tsundere}} toward the drama club's boys (and even using a wooden katana to keep them in line!) and her CoolCar, eating quite a bit of melon bread, and coming from an upper-middle-class family of actors. Oh, and she lets out the Shana clone's typical catchphrase on more than one occasion. In short, Sera could very well be the first {{Bifauxnen}} [[Creator/RieKugimiya Tsundere Wonder]].

[[folder:Light Novels]]
* Aria H. Kanzaki of ''LightNovel/AriaTheScarletAmmo'' is essentially Shana with a pair of katanas as well as a pair of guns, coupled with some of Louise' personality traits. She is also sometimes called the "Fifth Tsundere Wonder", after Shana, Louise, Nagi and Taiga. Kugimiya Point: 7
* Dalian of ''LightNovel/BibliothecaMysticaDeDantalian'', although she's probably heavily based off ''LightNovel/{{Gosick}}'''s Victorique instead of Shana, considering the heavy similarities in the series. She's reserved yet bossy towards Huey, occasionally kicking him, or having him wait on her as if she were the Lady and not he the Lord. She has an outfit almost identical to Victorique's, dark unkempt RapunzelHair in her human form and light haired GirlishPigtails in her Archive form (which [[AvertedTrope unfortunately]] doesn't seem to have a tsun side). She is also very short, flat-chested and [[ZettaiRyouiki wears tights]], though her dress is too long to tell the grade. She also [[TrademarkFavoriteFood loves sweet breads]], which is a major plot point in some episodes.
* Claire of ''LightNovel/BladedanceOfElementalers'' is a tiny, flat-chested, long-haired {{Tsundere}} who has [[PersonalityPowers fire as her element]]. She also carries around a magical, fiery whip, which she uses as a weapon and to "punish" [[NiceGuy Kamitou]] (who also has to deal with an UnwantedHarem. Poor dude...) with. Oh, and her AnimalMotif is a cat.
* Felli Loss from ''LightNovel/ChromeShelledRegios'' is a rare mix of this with ReiAyanamiExpy. While her powers make her TheStoic, she's a harsh Type A {{Tsundere}} with a petite body and RapunzelHair who calls the main character names and kicks him every time she gets angry.
* Fear Kubrick of ''LightNovel/CubeXCursedXCurious'': {{Tsundere}}? Check. Has a NiceGuy LoveInterest? Check. Has RapunzelHair? Check. Flat-chested? Check. Suffers from ACupAngst? She attacks a [[BuxomIsBetter more well-endowed]] girl and proclaims her an "enemy of the flat-chested". And that's only the first episode. Still, she's a relatively endearing version. [[spoiler:[[SlasherSmile Most]] [[DarkAndTroubledPast of]] [[BewareTheNiceOnes the]] [[UnstoppableRage time]].]]
* Kotori Itsuka of ''LightNovel/DateALive'', the [[NotBloodSiblings foster younger sister]] of the main character Shido. She fits the archetype quite well, with her sadistic tendencies, [[TrademarkFavoriteFood Chupa Chups lollipops]], RapunzelHair, grade S ZettaiRyouiki, and being a [[spoiler:[[PlayingWithFire literal]]]] FieryRedhead. Shido however doesn't see her as more than a younger sister.
* Laura Bodewig from ''LightNovel/InfiniteStratos'' is another example of this combined with ReiAyanamiExpy. She a short-statured girl with long grey hair, wears Grade A ZettaiRyouiki whenever she wears a skirt, is pretty short-tempered, bossy, and even violent, particularly towards her love interest, and is in competition with several other girls for Ichika's heart.
* Louise de la Valliere of ''LightNovel/TheFamiliarOfZero'' is a short girl with long pink hair as well as a noblewoman and a mage, whose LoveInterest, Saito, was summoned from Earth to serve as her familiar. She brutally beats him with a riding crop or a whip and refers to him as "slave" and "commoner", wears Grade A ZettaiRyouiki, and is in competition with several other girls for Saito's heart [[spoiler:[[FirstGirlWins though she ultimately wins]]]]. This is leveled out by showing occasional moments of kindness. Kugimiya Point: 8
* Victorique de Blois of ''LightNovel/{{Gosick}}'' has the long blond hair, tights, body-type and is partial to sweets. She's a more reserved {{Tsundere}} and is not violent in general, but is nevertheless incredibly bossy and has been known to kick her LoveInterest or smack him if he defies her. She's more directly based off Shinku from ''Manga/RozenMaiden'', though.
* In ''LightNovel/IfHerFlagBreaks'', Nanami fulfills this role. Short, young-looking with a complex about her size? Check. Long, blonde hair? Check. Dress/skirt in JoshiKousei style with Grade-A ZettaiRyouiki? Check. {{Tsundere}}? Not as constantly violent as some, but still qualifies. Female lead? Check. Also [[TheOjou born into royalty.]]
* Mio Isurugi, from [[AuthorExistenceFailure the late, lamented]] ''LightNovel/{{MM}}'', who is only different from most other examples in that she is tied in a BalancedHarem with her main rival, token NiceGirl Yuno (herself a minor Type-B {{Tsundere}}), not a clear lead character.
* Touka Tennouji of ''LightNovel/NogizakaHarukaNoHimitsu'' sports a small, flat-chested body, wears Grade-S ZettaiRyouiki, ties her white hair onto GirlishPigtails, and is such a BadBoss most butlers leave her less than a day into her service alone. Like Shana, however, she also deconstructs the trope: as Yuuto, the only one who actually survived in her service[[note]]as a part-time butler for one week to earn money to buy his true love, Haruka, a Christmas gift[[/note]], discovered, her tough personality is but a result of having to live with a family wracked with infighting over inheritances from her late grandfather. And to drive the point home: Kugimiya Point: 9
* Taiga Aisaka of ''LightNovel/{{Toradora}}'' is a [[DeconstructedTrope deconstruction]] of the archetype: part of the roots of her short temper, besides issues with her small body, flat chest and childlike appearance, stems from [[NoSocialSkills lack of social skills]] and having to deal with a broken family. Also, her body issues due to her looks are portrayed in a more realistic way (i.e. she uses her temper as a cover for deep-seated insecurities over her lack of height and curves), and she must learn to tone down her aggression to win over her LoveInterest, Ryuuji, as well as dealing with her psychological problems, which includes making up with her mother's new family before continuing their relationship. Kugimiya Point: 10
* Charlotte Belew from ''LightNovel/UnbreakableMachineDoll'' counts, despite being of average build and only a mild case of ACupAngst. She insults Raishin at just about every opportunity she gets. When he's about to win an argument with her, her responses range from shouting [[BigShutUp "Shut up!"]]/"That's not it!"/"Idiot!" to unleashing her Automaton on him. She even outright ''refuses'' his help at one point (despite having received his help before when she needed it), to the extent of ''threatening to kill him if he insisted on helping her''. Oh, and she's formerly of the nobility as well.

[[folder:Video Games]]
* Iori Minase from ''VideoGame/TheIdolmaster'' franchise, except she's an unusual Type A/B hybrid: Type B to total strangers, Type A to fellow idols, staff members and her handler. Kugimiya Point: 11
* Mirai from the Nintendo 3DS title ''VideoGame/SenranKagura''. In the original title, she is a Type A Tsundere antagonist/rival towards the [[NinjaSchool Hanzo Academy]] and during her rant in 3-05 to Yagyu shouts the iconic "Urusai! Urusai! Urusai!!!". She is playable in later titles such as Senran Kagura Burst and UsefulNotes/PSVita's Senran Kagura Shinovi Versus.
* Airi Ban of ''Anime/ShinMegamiTensei: VideoGame/DevilSurvivor2''. A bit less childlike than most, as she's only flat [[WorldOfBuxom in comparison with the rest of the female cast]] and is merely mad about still being mistaken for a junior high student when she's only in her first year of high school, but she has the [[{{Tsundere}} temperament]], the Grade A ZettaiRyouiki, and the [[RapunzelHair long]] [[FieryRedhead red hair]] to match the original.
* Oda Nobunaga of ''VideoGame/FateGrandOrder'', while not a big {{Tsundere}} like most clones are, has traits similar to the TropeNamer. From flames, katana, long black hair that turns red, short stature, ability to summon a PocketDimension and voice actress. Kugimiya Point: 12

[[folder:Visual Novels]]
* Emiri Yuuki in the HGame ''Kimihagu''. Bossy, strict, violent when provoked, a {{Tsundere}}, [[PersonalityBloodTypes Blood Type is B]], suffers from ACupAngst, had CuteLittleFangs, is the spoiled daughter of the high school's principal with blonde OjouRinglets...and she's only 155 cm tall.
* Reo from ''Sono Hanabira ni Kuchizuke wo''. [[TinyTyrannicalGirl Bossy]], OlderThanSheLooks, [[{{Ojou}} rich]] [[{{Joshikousei}} high-school girl]] with ZettaiRyouiki, [[RapunzelHair extremely long, thick, blonde hair]] and ACupAngst.
