One day, an [[OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent ordinary high school]] {{Otaku}}, Shouta Yamakawa, wishes that he could be by the side of the heroine of his favorite doujin, Sora Nagihara of ''Tama X Kiss''. Sora comes into the 3-D World from the 2-D World through the doujin. She is not [[BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor what Shouta expected.]] After a misunderstanding about Shouta's explanation of why he likes 2-D girls, [[CloudCuckooLander she decides that he is fit to rule]] [[TakeOverTheWorld the world]] and starts by [[HaremSeeker gathering some concubines to to create his heirs]]. HilarityEnsues.

This {{Manga}} is by Suu Minazuki, the author of ''Manga/WatashiNoMessiahSama'' and ''Manga/HeavensLostProperty''.

!Gou-dere contains examples of the following tropes:
* ActionMom: Tenka's mother, believe it or not, fits this trope. She's an attractive and rather silly woman who is as GenreSavvy as her mangaka husband. [[LetsGetDangerous Once her hair ribbon comes off]], though, look out. She becomes a ridiculously hot and (for this manga, anyway) rather dangerous vixen [[spoiler:both of]] her daughter[[spoiler:s]] could learn a LOT from.
* AffectionateParody: Oh, yes. Sora by nature is incredibly GenreSavvy, but more often than not she's WrongGenreSavvy because most of the tropes in harem 2-D media don't work when you apply them to real life. This series pokes fun at just about every typical harem anime trope imaginable.
* AmbiguousInnocence: Sora Nagihara. Her innocent nature is most obvious in Chapter 8 when she has a strongly LuminescentBlush when she is asked to cook food for her master. Other times though...
* AppliedPhlebotinum: All of Sora's martial arts techniques seem to come out of '''nowhere'''.
* AnatomicallyImpossibleSex: An in-universe example in that until chapter six, Sora thought that girls got pregnant when one ejaculated on their face.
* {{Bishonen}}: Tenka's dad [[TheGlassesComeOff without his glasses]].
* BreastExpansion: Tenka the flat-chested girl in chapter 3 got some [[GagBoobs "improvements"]] from Sora and yes, she even keeps them throughout the manga [[spoiler:despite the fact the weight prohibits her from using martial arts properly. Sort of shows how her feelings toward Shouta have grown, since she knows he likes them bigger.]]
* BuxomIsBetter: Sora tells Tenka, "Boys like big boobs." Also, as she's supposedly seeking out people to bear Shouta's children, she seeks out those with more 'motherly' figures.
** Averted with the boxing club manager, who hates large breasts.
* ButtMonkey: Shouta. Nearly every single chapter ends with him being carted off by the police for something Sora did.
* CallingYourAttacks: Spoofed with Tenka's parents and Sora's incredibly long attack names like: "2-D Art of Death, Secret Technique - Fist of the 'Prepare for the Fact That Most Small-Breasted Pretty Girls In Anime Nowadays Are Actually Boys'!!" and "'80's Art of Death, Secret Technique - Fist of 'When the Cartridge Isn't Working, Blow on the Connectors'!!"
* TheCameo: One of the girls Sora abducts for Shouta is [[Manga/HeavensLostProperty Makiko]].
* CannotSpitItOut: Ryoko, of course. Since she's a {{Tsundere}}, this is a given.
* CatGirl: Sort of. Sora actually is based on a terminally-ill manga character who wears ''fake'' cat ears, so that when she gets reborn, it might be as a cat. She's certainly [[FetishFuel invoking this trope]], though.
* ChildhoodFriendRomance: Ryoko Kaburagi certainly seems to be a contender for the harem.
* CompletelyMissingThePoint: Sora and '''especially''' Tenka's mother fall victim into this trope very often.
* CryCute: Almost all of the girls do this at some point.
* CuteBruiser: Sora. 2D Art of '''Death''', indeed.
* DCupDistress: Tenka didn't want her new breasts at first.
* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: Invoked intentionally by Sora. She... tends to do this...
** Such as when she makes Shouta spill ramen on Ryoko. She follows it up with [[spoiler: "You ejaculated on her face!"]]
* [[spoiler:{{Doppelganger}}: A second Sora comes to visit Shouta later. Turns out she's [[BitchInSheepsClothing pretty]] [[{{Yandere}} nasty]]]].
* {{Ecchi}}: And occasionally pushing the envelope...
* {{Expy}}: Shouta and Ryoko are both dead ringers for [[Manga/HeavensLostProperty Tomoki]] and [[AttractiveBentGender Tomoko]] respectively. In terms of personality, however, the characters couldn't be further apart, save the male lead's shared ButtMonkey status.
* HaremSeeker: Sora.
* HeroicSelfDeprecation: Interestingly enough, [[spoiler:Sora fits this trope, even though she's always so upbeat and hyper, since she knows she's the scrapped character for the Tama x Kiss series. Leads to an incredibly [[CrowningMomentofHeartwarming heartwarming moment]] later when Shouta tells her [[YouAreBetterThanYouThinkYouAre how wonderful she really is.]]]]
* ImprobablyFemaleCast: [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] since supposedly the principal of Shouta's school is a pervert and wants to keep the guy:girl ratio at his school low.
* IWantGrandkids: Tenka's parents want grandchildren so badly that they don't mind Shouta's UnwantedHarem and even try to give him relationship and sex advice so he will sleep with Tenka sooner. Needless to say, Shouta and Tenka are embarrassed beyond belief.
* TheLoinsSleepTonight: Tenka's father suffers this at one point.
* MagicalGirlfriend: An AffectionateParody of the genre.
* {{Meganekko}}: [[InvokedTrope Invoked]] by and forced on Ryoko Kaburagi.
* MeaningfulName: [[spoiler:Goudere is a portomanteau of ''Gouki'' (devil) and ''deredere'' (lovestruck). Sora is a devilish sweetheart, all right.]] Shouta is slang for {{Shotacon}}, which is an attraction to little boys, but in this case sort of just implies how much of a [[TheWoobie woobie]] Shouta is.
* MoodWhiplash: [[SignatureStyle It is a manga by Minazuki Suu after all.]]
* ObliviousToLove: Shouta Yamakawa, since he has 0 experience with it from real girls.
* PapaWolf: Tenka's dad, [[spoiler: the author of Sora's manga!]]
* RealityEnsues: Sora orders Ryoko Kaburagi to not take her glasses off when bathing, pointing out {{Meganekko}}s don't do that. Her glasses fog up and she can't see a thing.
* '''RefugeInAudacity''': For a while, no one was willing to translate this manga.
* SelectiveEnforcement: The police only ever arrest Shout a for the perverse acts Sora inflicts upon other women.
* SlasherSmile: [[spoiler: The second Sora does this when no one sees, confirming to the reader that she's evil.]]
* TechnicalPacifist: "I thought you said non-violent solutions to problems!" "Yes... I do... To that end... I believe in making one's opponent non-violent by incapacitating them."
* TheSoCalledCoward: Shouta, '''especially''' whenever a DramaBomb drops.
* TakeOverTheWorld: Sora's plan for Shouta. He wants no part of it.
* {{Tsundere}}: Ryoko Kaburagi, and a rather textbook one at that. *sigh*
* WhamEpisode: [[CaptainObvious Suprisingly.]]
** Chapter 7: [[spoiler:'''The Real''' (Or is it?) Sora appears from the doujin.]]
** Chapter 8: [[spoiler:The other Sora is an [[UpToEleven extreme]] BitchInSheepsClothing.]]
* WouldHitAGirl: [[spoiler:Fukouka Boxing's master invokes this on Tenka, who justifies himself saying he's not interested in girls with breasts. Sort of a watershed moment for how twisted he is.]]
