See, this is why you'll never amount to anything. You spend all day in front of that stupid television, wasting your valuable time and energy when you could be making yourself useful.

[[folder: Harsh (Tsun)]]
* Miss Piggy from ''Franchise/TheMuppets''. In ''WesternAnimation/MuppetBabies'', she's basically [[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion Asuka Langley Soryuu]] in pink and lace.
* Mindy of ''Series/DrakeAndJosh'' in her second appearance only. The animosity she had towards Josh in her first appearance had more of a MagnificentBastard vibe then Tsundere, but her second appearance they realized they were evoking SlapSlapKiss. After that she was a rather loving girlfriend.
* ''Series/NedsDeclassifiedSchoolSurvivalGuide'':
** Evelyn Kwong. Cookie didn't realize what he unleashed when he said that the challenge of beating him was what motivated her.
** [[HairTriggerTemper Moze]] also qualifies, to a lesser extent. Outwardly, she's snarky and aggressive, and she only really shows her ''deredere'' side to Ned, and sometimes Cookie.
* ''Series/MurphyBrown''. Murphy is, of course, usually incredily cranky and prone to violence, but exhibits some tsundere tendencies with all three of her main love. Minterests:
** With Jake Lowenstein, she insists that she "becomes a different person" when she's.with him, and they fight constantly.
** Both she and FYI's sworn enemy Jerry Gold quickly made it apparent that they loathed one another. Eventually (and to their initial horror), they realized that they did indeed have feelings for each other. (Jerry could also be considered one of the rare examples of a male tsundere.)
** When she first meets Peter Hunt, she actually goes so far as to [[spoiler:punch him in the face seconds before show time]]. They bicker, call each other names and play pranks on each other until a later episode in which Corky suggests that Murphy has some interest in him. She's absolutely appalled at the thought, but a few episodes and one more fight later, they're both making out in her office.
* Major Margaret Houlihan of ''Series/{{Mash}}''. Definitely favored the violent side, especially towards [[TheCasanova Hawkeye]], but showed a softer side with [[{{Jerkass}} Frank]], [[RomanticFalseLead Donald]], and occasionally [[AFatherToHisMen Col. Potter]], [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold Winchester]], and even Hawkeye again.
* Jessica Devlin of ''Series/{{Shark}}'' liked to combine the cold shoulder with the smirk, especially in her dealings with longtime [[FoeYay rival]] Sebastian Stark.
* Lois of ''Series/MalcolmInTheMiddle''. She may constantly scream at and berate her sons, but it's also apparent that she loves them all deeply and only wants what's best for them. She is more Sweet with her husband, Hal: in general if they're alone together she's a melty pile of deredere, but he can set her off just as well as the boys can: he just doesn't do it as frequently.
* Soo from ''[[Series/TheSootyShow Sooty & Co.]]'' and ''Sooty Heights''.
* Jackie Burkhart of ''Series/That70sShow'' is a classic Harsh Tsundere during the early seasons, when she was dating Kelso. She's naturally bossy and likes to feel in control of the relationship, whereas Kelso likes "doing it", making him easily exploitable, and him being TooDumbToLive doesn't help much. She mellows out once she starts dating Hyde after Kelso flees to California to avoid getting married to her.
* Maggie from ''Series/{{Sliders}}''. Leans tsun in season 3 (to contrast with Wade), dere in season 4 (to ''replace'' Wade), and reaches equilibrium in season 5.
* Both Mia (Sweet) and Marizza (Harsh) from ''RebeldeWay''.
* Both Maddy Magellan and Carla Borrego from ''Series/JonathanCreek''.
* Alex Drake of ''Series/AshesToAshes''.
* Robin of ''Series/HowIMetYourMother'', to Ted and later to Barney.
* Perry Cox in ''Series/{{Scrubs}}'' is a very rare example of being both a guy ''and'' and very old compared to other examples of this trope. His tsun side is mostly directed towards JD, whom he constantly berates for his childish or effeminate behavior, but is secretly proud of his commitment to medicine and caring for his patients as actual people.
* ''Series/DoctorWho'':
** "OI! WATCH IT, SPACEMAN!" [[Characters/DoctorWho Donna Noble]] is an over-the-top ''tsun'' type in her first appearance and is her default mood (though toned down to levels that allowed for more well-rounded characterization when she became a regular) but she can be ''dere''. Also a FieryRedhead.
** Fifth Doctor companion [[Characters/DoctorWho Tegan Jovanka]] is almost '''ridiculously''' tsun in Season 19 to anyone who isn't fellow companion Nyssa. Her relationship with the Doctor, and later companion Turlough, mellows somewhat later on, but she's always got that harsh edge.
** The Twelfth Doctor begins very tsun in Series 8 to anyone who isn't Clara, and even then he acts tsun enough towards her that the budding romance seen with the Eleventh Doctor is sunk, Clara turns to a fellow teacher to get the affection she no longer received from the Doctor, and she nearly leaves him for good after he makes a harsh decision for her. Over time, particularly in Series 9, his personality mellows, he becomes softer and more sympathetic (though his tsun nature still emerges) and most notably, his relationship with Clara becomes noticeably more affectionate.
* Sam Puckett of ''Series/ICarly''. ''Very'' Harsh, especially towards Freddie. Only Carly can usually bring out her "dere" side. Although later, Freddie is able to bring out her dere side also. [[GoMadFromTheRevelation She didn't accept this very readily.]]
* ''Series/GossipGirl'': Blair Waldorf to Chuck Bass.
** In season 4, she's a textbook case with Dan.
* Sherlock Holmes from ''Series/{{Sherlock}}'' is almost always a sarcastic, rude, InsufferableGenius… except with [[OnlyFriend John]] and [[ParentalSubstitute Mrs. Hudson]]--and that, too, only when he's feeling particularly charitable, or when they've done something incredibly loyal. And piss him off enough by either hurting [[TeamMom Mrs. Hudson]] or threatening [[LivingEmotionalCrutch John's]] life, you're screwed.
%%* Maggie O'Connell from ''Series/NorthernExposure'' is a Harsh.
* Quinn on ''Series/{{Glee}}'' usually gives the cold shoulder to Puck; however, there have been several times when she has opened up to him. She also has a short temper with her boyfriend Finn but given that he's TheDitz, he kind of needs someone to boss him around. Most obviously would be the relationship Quinn has with Rachel.
** Sue Sylvester is in ''tsun'' mode nearly all the time, except during her brief relationship with Rod in "Mash-Up" and [[spoiler: with her disabled sister]] in "Wheels."
** Lauren, who's also often in ''tsun'' mode, but WhenSheSmiles there are hints that she really likes Puck. Her song ''I Know What Boys Like'' spells it out.
* Rachel from ''Series/{{Friends}}''. Neatly [[LampshadeHanging summed up]] by Ross' sister, Monica.
--> '''Monica:''' I'm Rachel: ''I love Ross! I hate Ross! I love Ross! I hate Ross!''
* Kelly from ''Series/{{Misfits}}'', who is violently aggressive and very easily provoked--she's forced to do community service for attacking a girl who insulted her, so that should tell you something--but uses her temper to hide her deep insecurities, and is a genuinely kind and sensitive person underneath it all. Oddly enough, ''both'' sides of her personality are emphasised by her [[BelligerentSexualTension strange flirtation]] with Nathan--she does try to be nice to him and helps him out when he's in trouble, but he can be such a [[DeadpanSnarker snarky little]] [[JerkassWoobie brat]] that she typically ends up punching, kicking, slapping or otherwise mauling him at least three times per episode. Ironically, he later confesses that he ''likes'' her attitude problem and the fact that she's the only person who slaps him when he's being a jerk.
%%* Aeryn Sun from ''Series/{{Farscape}}'' is Harsh.
%%* Taylor Earhardt from ''Series/PowerRangersWildForce'' counts, specifically in the crossover with ''Series/PowerRangersTimeForce''.
* Major Kira Nerys of ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'', a fierce, fiery former resistance leader and NumberTwo in the station's chain of command, who just happens to melt into a cuddly pile of smiles and tenderness when she and Odo are alone post-"His Way." And frequently before, with her various earlier love interests, although not to the degree seen in Season 7.
** Odo himself is a bit of a tsundere. His first appearance had him berate Commander Sisko for carrying a phaser on the promenade immediately after he used said phaser to subdue a violent criminal. His law enforcement ranges from zealous to fascist. He's openly contemptuous of Starfleet. Pair him with Kira or Lwaxana Troi, and he becomes a pussycat.
** It was revealed in the ''[[Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine Deep Space Nine]]'' episode "Destiny" that Tsundere behaviour is part of the Cardassian mating ritual.
* Benny from ''Series/TheGeorgeLopezShow'' is a tsundere mom. She's usually rude and belligerent towards George, but there's been more than one episode dedicated to the fact that she really does love her son.
* Miley from ''Series/HannahMontana'' is Harsh to Jake Ryan when they first meet. Eventually, they enter a relationship, but then break up. When they later meet as friends, she acts Sweet.
* Wakana from ''Series/KamenRiderDouble'' starts out this way. While she may appear to be a BitchInSheepsClothing, she seems to genuinely like being Wakana Healing Princess on the radio and Philip brings out her softer side. [[spoiler: Then she has a HeelFaceTurn and her switch gets stuck on Tsun until the very end of the show.]]
** ''Series/KamenRiderOOO'' also has deserves a mention and it appears that it is an angry bird named [[TheLancer Ankh]]. He is usually a tsun on [[TheHero Eiji]], but he actually cares for him in the end.
* Tasha Mack from Series/TheGame2006. A large part of her tsuntsun personality comes from her younger days as a single mother surviving on her own, so being fierce was her defense. Although this works when she is going up against people she doesn't intend to have a relationship with, it sort of backfires when she wants to pursue a relationship.
--> '''Tasha:''' Oh my god! You're breaking up with me?! I will kill you! Please don't leave me, cause I will kill you!
* Barbara Havers of ''Series/TheInspectorLynleyMysteries'', who spends the vast majority of her time in ''tsun'' mode--particularly in the early series. As time and CharacterDevelopment go on, however, Lynley begins to bring out more and more of her ''dere'' side, until by the later series she is an equal mix of the two and her ''tsun'' side has mellowed. Her early defensive harshness is due to a number of factors, not the least of which is due to her being a BrokenBird with a FriendlessBackground and a DarkAndTroubledPast.
* [[Series/{{Degrassi}} Holly J Sinclair's]] default mode is Tsuntsun, she acts catty and tough and in charge… unless she's alone with someone, and her Deredere side shines through to actually level with someone. It has taken seasons of character development to get over this… somewhat, she still defaults with snark and sarcasm and calls herself on it.
** Bianca similarly has a rough Bad Girl Tsun side, casually insulting to anyone and everyone. However after the ending of Season 10 she's let her Dere side show up when she's with Drew, Adam, and Imogen. The rest of the cast still has to deal with her Tsun side exclusively though.
* Kate Beckett from ''Series/{{Castle}}'' is a tsundere towards Richard Castle. Harsh (tsun tsun); she's harsh and abrasive to many but has a softer side that only Castle can bring out. When he shows interest in other women she becomes intensely jealous yet refuses to admit it.
%%* Jo from ''Series/GoodLuckCharlie'' practically ''defines'' a harsh tsundere.
* Rikki Chadwick from ''Series/H2OJustAddWater''. Her ''Tsuntsun'' side comes from [[spoiler: living with her poor father]] and seemingly being a loner most of her life. It doesn't help that the boy she is ''deredere'' for is unknowingly trying to expose her secret. She even remains the same after she's properly gotten together with him though her ''deredere'' side comes out a bit more.
* Arthur Pendragon from ''{{Series/Merlin 2008}}'' is like this in his friendship with Merlin. He'll snark at and insult Merlin to no end, but when the going gets tough, or it's just a serious moment, he's not afraid to tell Merlin how good a friend he is.
* In SuperSentai, we have Yoko Usami from ''Series/TokumeiSentaiGobusters''. Even moreso at the start of the ''Returns'' movie when she and Hiromu first meet (in the Dobutsu Sentai AU).
* ''Series/TrueBlood'': Tara. Ye gods, Tara.
* ''Series/WizardsOfWaverlyPlace'': Alex, Harsh. Mostly uses The Taunt strategy, and her blatant insults towards Justin are what keep her from being full Kuudere.
* The HoYay between Richard [=MacDuff=] and Dirk Gently in the ''Series/DirkGently'' TV series provides a typical example:
-->'''Richard:''' I'll make you tea, but only because I'm going to make some for myself.
* Patricia has never been the nicest character on ''Series/HouseOfAnubis'', but her real ''Tsuntsun'' side has never really been unleashed until Eddie came along. She reveals her soft side in moments of weakness or when she's feeling comfortable, but that doesn't stop her from being a DeadpanSnarker and getting annoyed easily.
* Josh Lyman from ''Series/TheWestWing'' (specifically towards his assistant, Donna).
* Jade West from ''Series/{{Victorious}}'' fits this trope almost perfectly. She is harsh, critical, and rude towards even her friends most of the time. However, her sweet side can be seen, usually with her boyfriend Beck, though at times in regards to the main character Tori or their friends such as Cat.
* Murray Goldberg from ''Series/TheGoldbergs'' is the often grumpy father, depicted by Adam as no-nonsense and blunt, with a habit for saying "Moron" to them whenever they mess up (which is often). Rarely is he truly happy, unless it's watching TV or stripping off his pants after work.
* Tivia from ''Series/{{Photon}}'' is a warrior woman who hates all men, especially Bhodi Li. But she does occasionally complement him and show concern of his wellbeing.

[[folder: Sweet (Dere)]]
* ''Series/{{iCarly}}'':
** The eponymous Carly Shay is sweet and level headed, but nicknamed ''The Sassmaster'' (by a teacher) for a reason. She was ''especially'' angry with Freddie and Sam when she found out they kissed and didn't tell her. [[BerserkButton Never tell her to calm down, constantly interrupt her, or imply that you and she are a honeymoon couple.]]
** Freddie too. He is sweet, but he does have his moments where he's annoyed.
* [[Series/SonnyWithAChance Sonny Munroe]] is Sweet. Firstly with her love interest Chad. And with her BFF the AlphaBitch / TheRival Tawni. [[FoeYay Make of that what you will.]]
* In ''Series/TheSuiteLifeOfZackAndCody'', Maddie can be seen as a caring person, unless [[RichBitch London]] is around.
* Britta on ''Series/{{Community}}'', especially her actions towards Jeff.
** Annie, also from ''Series/{{Community}}'', also related to Jeff. She may have grown from a crush to being in love with him, but she has also hit him, slammed his face into a table, and pretended to shoot him.
* The titular character of ''{{Series/Merlin 2008}}''. He's Sweet, primarily towards Arthur. Merlin is generally very sweet and friendly towards everyone but Arthur brings out his more sarcastic and snarky side.
* ''Series/NedsDeclassifiedSchoolSurvivalGuide'': Suzie Crabgrass is generally sweet, but Ned can trigger her ''tsuntsun'' side.
* Clare Edwards of ''Series/{{Degrassi}}'' is a sweet gentle kind girl with little hints of snark to her name when someone does something a bit dumb… unless she finds a boy she likes. As her initial reaction to all three boys she's dated was to become instantly annoyed at everything they did or said for at least an episode or three. With K.C. this lasted most of Season 8. She also shifts to her Tsuntsun nature when betrayed or alone, so it's not strictly a romantic play. It's her defense against getting hurt.
* Inara Serra of ''{{Series/Firefly}}'' is a [[HighClassCallGirl registered Companion]] with extensive training in social interactions, keeping her cool, and saying just the right things to make people happy. Her job suits her: she is polite and genuinely kind to everyone, unless otherwise warranted, to the point where she can get along with people from all walks of life but feels like she doesn't really fit in anywhere. Then she rents a shuttle from Captain Malcolm Reynolds. [[BelligerentSexualTension Cue back and forth between admiration]] and VolleyingInsults. [[spoiler:And an eventual RelationshipUpgrade in [[ComicBook/SerenityLeavesOnTheWind the continuation comics]].]]
* Ted from ''Series/HowIMetYourMother'' is a bit of this: his various virtues, especially his UpToEleven level of dedication and compassion towards his friends, are very impressive, but he's also prone to impulsiveness and irrationality, combined with very strong emotions, which often results in him doing jerkish things before his brain kicks in and he realizes how he's acting, which he inevitably repents bitterly.
* Ezra from ''Series/PrettyLittleLiars'' is mostly sweet and friendly towards Aria and her friends, there are some moments where he shows his tsuntsun side.
* Dr. James Wilson from ''Series/{{House}}'' is a caring, polite, friendly to all living things Deredere oncologist… except where his best friend [[{{Jerkass}} Dr. Greg House]] is involved, and suddenly he can Tsun it up like the best of them.
* John and Mary from ''Series/{{Sherlock}}'' are sweet, but Mary ''was'' [[BewaretheNiceOnes an assassin]] and John DOES have his moments where he's annoyed at times, or whatever, but if you manage to piss him off by [[BerserkButton threatening]] [[LivingEmotionalCrutch his best friend's life]]-and if you're a criminal-he'll [[TranquilFury calmly]] kill you. [[NightmareFuel And show no remorse about it.]] Oh, and he's also ''very'' [[ShrinkingViolet shy.]]
* Elena of ''Series/TheVampireDiaries''.
* Donna from ''Series/TheWestWing'' starts out as this, though she gets increasingly testy as Josh, her boss and the object of her affection, hobbles her professionally and gives her grunt work far below her capabilities.

* Kanata is one in ''Series/AGirlAndThreeSweethearts''.
* Downplayed by ''Series/{{Farscape}}'' in the character of Aeryn Sun. She might seem to be a ''{{Tsundere}}'' at first, but is disqualified for running hot and cold at the same time, as opposed to running hot and cold alternately, resulting in a sort of permanent TheSpock exterior with passions that never ''quite'' surface; a definite lack of SlapSlapKiss due to her MegatonPunch hurting Crichto and her coming by her behavior honestly as a borderline SuperSoldier trained TheSpartanWay suddenly cut adrift from her ''in no way'' MildlyMilitary lifestyle and ending up on the wrong end of a SternChase… ta-daa.
* Spike from ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' After he develops a crush on [[spoiler:Buffy]]. "[[MusicalEpisode First he'll kill her, then I'll save her… No, I'll save her]], ''[[IfWeSurviveThis then]]'' [[MusicalEpisode I'll kill her…]]"
-->Spike to [[spoiler:Buffy]], after he's caught [[StalkerWithACrush lurking outside her house]]: "And I never really liked you anyway, and [[LameComeback and you have stupid hair]] (''{{beat}}'') [''Leaves'']."
* Dorothy Patrillo Zbornak, from ''Series/TheGoldenGirls''.
* Jeff Winger from ''Series/{{Community}}'' with regards to Annie Edison. He may have started out lusting after Britta, but now he alternates between realizations that he cares about/loves Annie, and loudly denying any sort of feelings or attraction to her face.
* Grace from ''Series/JackAndBobby'' was like this with her T.A.
* As does Susan from ''Series/{{Coupling}}'' to some extent. If she uses the word "apparently", '''run'''.
* [[ This]] Monty Python sketch is a tsundere butcher with a boater hat.
* Lynda Day from ''Series/PressGang'' embodies this trope ''par excellence''. "Lynda's favourite colour is obedience, folks. It's true! Hard? They had to use an industrial laser to pierce her ears!" "Her ears aren't pierced." "I didn't say it worked!"
* B'Elanna Torres from ''Series/StarTrekVoyager'' is a unique example--her tsun and dere halves are [[HalfHumanHybrid different species]]. Since she's not especially proud of her Klingon side, she tries to live more as a human; she's a good officer and a caring friend, and even has some "girly" habits like reading romance novels. But when B'Elanna gets mad, she gets [[UnstoppableRage MAD]]. Tom Paris has the bruises to prove it.
* Lana from ''Series/{{Frasier}}'' definitely deserves mention here. For a while, she is sweet and friendly, but tick her off and her volume goes straight to 11.
* ''Series/{{Being Human|UK}}'''s Nina Pickering is sarcastic with everyone, but has her sweet moments with George.
* Rachel Berry of ''Series/{{Glee}}'' is a perfect example of a tsundere who is neither Harsh nor Sweet--or, rather, she goes back and forth between the two.
* Maybe not a strong example, but Calleigh Duquesne seems to act tsundere towards Eric Delko sometimes in ''Series/CSIMiami''.
* Fiona from ''Series/BurnNotice''. When Michael tells her in one episode to disable the [[MonsterOfTheWeek Criminal of the Week's]] car, she attaches a blasting cap to the gasoline tank. Sure, it disables it, but it nearly kills their mark. She truly cares for Michael though, and she loves hitting people, as seen in the very same episode, where she uses not one, but 3 ArmorPiercingSlap on Sam in order to make a getaway.
** Her relationship with Mike did slowly head down the dere road during season three, but the conflict regarding Jesse is bringing the tsun back again. Maddie also sums up their relationship perfectly while [[spoiler: firmly sinking the Jesse/Fi ship.]]
--->'''Maddie:''' They love each other. And they hate each other. But it's always each other.
* Lois Lane of ''Series/{{Smallville}}''. She starts out on the Tsuntsun side and slowly shifts toward Deredere. Other characters on the show seem to have {{Tsundere}} tendencies also, including most of the female characters (even Martha Kent, toward Lionel Luthor), but also Lex Luthor, who seems to alternate between a man-crush on Clark and spitting venom at him.
* Athena from the original ''Series/{{Battlestar Galactica|1978}}'' can be very hot-tempered--especially when it concerns Starbuck [[TheCasanova doting on other women]]. Other than that, she usually keeps a cool head on duty and being sweet and loving towards her father. Same goes for Sheba, who is usually seen bickering with Apollo.
* ''Series/DoctorWho'': Amy Pond swings between Harsh and Sweet when it comes to Rory; she begins very Harsh, calling him her "sort-of boyfriend", while still being sweet to him, but softens up considerably--being overtly affectionate while sometimes swinging back into her angry behavior--after [[spoiler:watching him die. Twice.]] Amy also treats the Doctor in this manner during her first episode, swinging between ''Oh my God it's my Doctor!'' and ''[[AC:Twelve Years]] (and four psychiatrists)!''.
* Maya Hart from ''Series/GirlMeetsWorld'' qualifies as this towards Farkle, with heaps of snark. Oddly enough, She's only ''Tsuntsun'' towards Farkle (at most she's on a calm side with him) but ''Deredere'' towards her friend's uncle Josh. While she can go "in love" with Josh, she can never admit she loves Farkle in public. She even says this to Lucas in "Girl Meets Flaws":
-->I want my Farkle back. We're not as good without him. But if you tell him that I'll jack you up son.
* Mirabelle of ''Series/TheKicks''. In "Go Big or Go Home", Devin talks her through being trapped in an elevator. [[note]]She's claustrophobic.[[/note]] She responds by hugging Devin, then swears Devin to secrecy about it.
I'm only looking out for your well-being, although I don't see why ''I'' should care when ''you'' plainly don't. I'd even be willing to help you do some exercises. --Not like ''that''! Get your head screwed on straight!

[---I do wish you'd spend a little more time with me... punk.---]

…let's get back to {{Tsundere}}, [[HypocriticalHumor before you make this even more awkward]].
