-->--'''[[StockPhrase Pretty much everyone on this page]]'''

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 [[Manga/RozenMaiden Shinku]]), 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).
* 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 as 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/ZeroNoTsukaima 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/ZeroNoTsukaima Louise]] actually has a riding crop, which she sometimes uses to whip her familiar/LoveInterest, Saito.)
* 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.

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: She 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.]]
* Louise de la Valliere of ''LightNovel/ZeroNoTsukaima'' 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: 2
* 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: 3
* 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: 4
* 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: 5
* Shinku of ''Manga/RozenMaiden'' has some traits of the archetype. She's (even) smaller than the other girls on this list -- [[JustifiedTrope which is justified]] by being, well, [[CaptainObvious a doll]] -- but she has the same proportions and [[GirlishPigtails hair]], and while she's not conscious of her body like other examples, she otherwise retains most typical personality attributes: bossy, abusive to Jun, and pretty much in control of his domestic life (despite technically being her master), but also deeply cares about him as more than just her medium. It's unclear whether she is romantically interested, but Suiseiseki (who definitely is) recognizes that [[FirstGirlWins she shares the closest bond with him]] out of [[UnwantedHarem all the dolls]].
* 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.
* {{Downplayed}} in ''Astarotte no Omocha''. Astarotte mostly fits that archtype but rarely uses physical violence on Naoya or insult him. Kugimiya Point: 6
* 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.
* Mina Tepes of ''Manga/DanceInTheVampireBund'' has all the traits, except she's more of a Type B tsundere.
* ''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.
* Mio Aoyama of ''Manga/TheWorldGodOnlyKnows'' is a deliberate homage to this trope, and is most likely based on Nagi.
** Tsukiyo Kujou also resembles this trope in many ways, although in this case it doesn't get {{lampshaded}}.
* Dalian of ''LightNovel/BibliothecaMysticaDeDantalian'' is another example, probably heavily based off of Victorique, considering the heavy similarities in the series, being 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. She and Shinku are both voiced by Creator/MiyukiSawashiro, but with a different, older voice.
* Kodama Himegami of ''Manga/MakenKi'' shows many typical aspects of this trope, but her body height is normal for her age.
* ''Manga/ShugoChara'' plays it straight with Rima Mashiro, but at the same time subverts it with Yua Sakurai, who may fits the archetype physically (and is also voiced by Creator/RieKugimiya) but is overall quite a NiceGirl.
* ''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: 7.
* 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]].
* 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]].]]
* 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 fifty feet tall]], [[BoobsOfSteel very stacked]] and somewhat more cool-headed (though she does smack Michel around once when he's in his mecha).
* [[TheSlayers Lina Inverse]] has all but one or two of the qualities listed above, despite predating Shana by 13 years.
* 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.
* 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: 8.
* Claire Rouge from ''LightNovel/SeireiTsukaiNoBladeDance''.
* Eco from ''Seikoku no Dragner''.
* Mine from '' Manga/AkameGaKiru''.
* 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.
* 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.
* 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: 9.
* 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.
* Linn Suzuki from ''TheAdventuresOfKoetsu'' for the most part fits the mold. Aside from not being voiced by Creator/RieKugimiya, This Trope is OlderThanTheyThink.
* In MangakasanToAssistantsanTo, 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. If she counts, Kugimiya point: 10.
* In KanojoGaFlagOOraretara, 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.]]
* In the upcoming anime/manga Isuca, main character Sakuya Shimazu fits the bill perfectly. Ironically, while she treats the hero like dirt, [[spoiler: [[IKnowYourTrueName he early on obtains the power to make her do whatever he wants.]]]]

[[folder: Fan Fics]]
* 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 {{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:Video Games]]
* Airi Ban of ''ShinMegamiTensei: 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.
* 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: 10.
* Mirai from the Nintendo 3DS title ''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 PSVita's Senran Kagura Shinovi Versus.

[[folder: Visual Novels ]]
* Reo from ''Sono Hanabira ni Kuchizuke wo''. [[TinyTyrannicalGirl Bossy]], OlderThanSheLooks, [[TheOjou rich]] [[{{Joshikousei}} high-school girl]] with ZettaiRyouiki, [[RapunzelHair extremely long, thick, blonde hair]] and ACupAngst.
