Naturally, you're not only incredibly ''dense'', but childish as well.

Yes, just as there are tsundere in both manga and comics, there are tsundere in Western animation. So don't forget it!


[[folder: Harsh (Tsun)]]
* Henry from ''WesternAnimation/TheAmazingChanAndTheChanClan'' is mildly Harsh when it comes to [[StraightManAndWiseGuy Stanley]].
* Cindy Vortex from ''WesternAnimation/TheAdventuresOfJimmyNeutron.'' She's far more "tsun" than "dere," but there are a few times she lets her true feelings for Jimmy slip through.
* Britanny Miller from ''WesternAnimation/AlvinAndTheChipmunks'', towards Alvin Seville (and VICE VERSA).
* Kira Tonbo from ''WebAnimation/AngelicateAvenue'' is completely and totally tsun-tsun to Kimi, then when spoken to by Koja, reverts to dere-dere mode.
* Lana from ''WesternAnimation/{{Archer}}'', ''especially'' towards the titular character himself. In almost every episode, she's angry, sarcastic, and extremely critical towards the rest of her colleagues (most of all Archer, due to their shared on-and-off relationship). However, she has shown a few moments where she's acted friendly, and even ''loving'' towards her team, a trait that's most prominent due to her [[spoiler: sudden pregnancy]] in Season 5.
* ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'':
** Zuko is something of a prickly {{Jerkass}} most of the time, but has a soft, dorky center that he pretty much only shows around his SugarAndIce girlfriend Mai.
** Toph can come off as snarky and harsh, but she displays a much friendlier and warmer side of herself if you get to know her. Or if you're [[CoolOldGuy Iroh]]. She also likes to show affection for someone by punching their arm.
%%* Kevin Levin in ''WesternAnimation/{{Ben 10}}'' is an example of Harsh.
* Kiina in ''Toys/{{Bionicle}}: The Legend Reborn''.
* Cat from ''WesternAnimation/{{CatDog}}'' is a male example, especially when it comes to his brother Dog. He'll often let his MoneyFetish and {{Jerkass}} tendencies get the better of him, but [[BreakTheCutie whenever Dog's been truly humiliated or upset]], [[AwLookTheyReallyDoLoveEachOther he'll do whatever it takes to make him happy]].
* If you look at it from ACertainPointOfView, Wally aka Numbuh 4 from ''WesternAnimation/CodenameKidsNextDoor'' is a male tsundere. He's the kind of kid who's crazy for action, but when Kuki's being sweet to him, he can't look at Kuki straight in the eye.
* Sarah from ''WesternAnimation/EdEddNEddy''. It's hard to tell, because she's almost always in tsun-mode--occasionally going full-blown [[AxCrazy Ax Crazy]]--but she does have her occasional dere moments, mostly toward [[CampStraight Jimmy]].
* A rare male example: [[TheMeanBrit Kyle]] from ''WesternAnimation/FanboyAndChumChum'' qualifies. While usually dismissing the titular duo's pushy friendliness with [[DeadpanSnarker snark]], he has occasionally shown to crave their friendship in reality, most prominently in the episode "Sigmund the Sorcerer".
* Some fans believe that this is the hidden behavior of Trixie Tang toward Timmy Turner in ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddParents''. In fact, in the episode ''Manic Mom-Day'' she truly behaves as a tsundere.
* It's hard to believe, but in ''WesternAnimation/TheGrimAdventuresOfBillyAndMandy'', the eponymous Mandy is a tsundere. A Valentine's Day episode revolved entirely around her trying to break out of her ''deredere'' mode. There's also the moment when Mandy finds out that Billy fell in love with a seemingly normal girl. Cue a shocked expression, a slightly saddened expression, then a total verbal beatdown of how desperate the girl is. If it were anyone else other than Mandy, one would call her jealous.
* ''WesternAnimation/HeyArnold'':
** Helga Pataki makes a prime example here. Throughout the series, she goes all ''dere-dere'' on Arnold in private and even has a [[StalkerShrine shrine devoted to him]], yet she can only act ''tsun-tsun'' and bully him in public. In fact, she could easily [[ out-tsundere]] even the most extreme Anime tsunderes. She at first seems to be purely of the Wolf-Girl variant, but as CharacterizationMarchesOn we begin to find out that she is more of a Tragic Past Tsundere, TheUnfavorite of a [[ParentsAsPeople well-meaning father]] "supportively" trying to push her to [[WellDoneSonGuy be as good]] as her sister [[TheAce the genius athletic near-saint]].
** It's revealed that Arnold's grandma was this when she was young.
** Rhonda could easily be seen as this for Harold, especially in "Operation Ruthless" and "An Egg Story". Though it should be noted that her "tsun" mode is not nearly as agressive or outright hostile as Helga.
* Heloise from ''WesternAnimation/JimmyTwoShoes'' goes from tsun to dere when Jimmy shows up… and then to {{yandere}} when her [[GreenEyedMonster jealousy]] gets the better of her.
* Lily from ''WesternAnimation/KappaMikey'' must have the diaphragm of ten lions and threatens physical pain not just on her target of affection Mikey but on the rest of the cast as well. Only once in a full moon does she admit that Mikey's sweet.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Kaeloo}}'' gives us a rare male example with Mr. Cat - he acts like a complete {{Jerkass}} most of the time, even to his "friends" and acts like he hates is often reluctant to join their games, but he secretly cares for them and gets angry when they forget to invite him to play. His dere side mostly comes out around Kaeloo, his ImpliedLoveInterest.
* Kendall in ''WesternAnimation/KickButtowski'', whenever Kicks around she acts in her tsun-mode. But when he's not looking she goes in dere-mode for him.
* Vanessa Warfield from WesternAnimation/{{MASK}} towards Brad Turner in the second season.
* Murderface from ''WesternAnimation/{{Metalocalypse}}''. Oftentimes he is rude, crude, and disrespectful to his band mates and the world around him, but occasionally becomes emotional and insecure of himself (especially in [[spoiler:Performanceklok]] and [[spoiler:Birthdayface]]). Creator Brendon Small describes Murderface as, [[ "a self-hating bass player […] thin-skinned and incredibly sensitive]] and [[InferioritySuperiorityComplex just wants to be accepted constantly but can't get that because he's such a dick and pushes people away."]]
* Teddy from ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyTales'' is this to Sweetheart, as seen in the episode "Stand By Me".
** Rainbow Dash from ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' can be this at times to Fluttershy, Applejack, Rarity, Pinkie Pie, and Tank, her pet tortoise. She's got a good heart, but she can be rather rude to her closest friends. She softens up in later seasons and becomes more of an Unsorted Tsundere with both Harsh and Sweet qualities to her. She's also a {{Kuudere}}. She even says a classic Tsundere line saying she's worried Tank will slack off and isn't worried about him. Cue LuminescentBlush.
** Fluttershy's pet WhiteBunny Angel is also this. He is often abrasive to his mistress but he's worse to everyone else, doesn't like being separated from her yet—when she needs it—he is sweet and comforting.
** Rarity's cat Opalescence showed this behavior in the presence of Rainbow Dash's tortoise Tank. The episode "Just for Sidekicks" shows her being affectionate towards him and her typical behavior towards others, but only after smacking his head once.
** Princess Ember from "Gauntlet of Fire" is a classic Harsh type, putting on a strong front but still being nice and friendly in her own way.
* Candace of ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb'' has some aspects of this. Most noticeable in "Split Personality", in which she's split into pure Tsun Tsun and pure Dere Dere duplicates.
* Non-romantic example (most of the time): Spinelli from ''WesternAnimation/{{Recess}}'' is (usually) dere-dere towards the other five main kids, but tsun-tsun to everyone else. Also, she's the most dere-dere with T.J., whom it's hinted she has a crush on…
* Ren from ''WesternAnimation/TheRenAndStimpyShow'' is one towards his best friend and [[HoYay life partner]] Stimpy. Less so in the first episodes, where apart from Ren's occasional and usually justified insults, the vitriolic part of their relationship is barely visible. But, oddly for tsunderes, his positive/neutral attitude goes downhill as episodes pass. In ''Adult Party Cartoon'', [[{{Flanderization}} he turns into a monster]] (at least, in some episodes, where it was intended as RuleOfFunny, but turned out very much DudeNotFunny). His tsundere behaviour towards Stimpy varies between DomesticAbuse and IShallTauntYou, with only the latter receiving any noticeable reaction. In earlier seasons, he used to have CryCute breakdowns fairly often, with Stimpy as his shoulder to cry on--in "Son Of Stimpy" and "The Big Shot" it's also very obviously portrayed that he cares deeply for the moronic cat, which is the "dere" side of his personality.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'':
** In the episode "Stealing First Base", Bart falls in love with Nikki, a girl in another fourth grade class. She's definitely '''Harsh'''. She goes from being upset because he stole a kiss from her, to wanting to be his girlfriend. He still can't figure her out by the end of the episode (though Bart did cry out, "I love you!" to her as she left).
** When Bart ends up in Juvie, he becomes the target of a Gina, a tough girl who may or may not like him. Bart is as confused by this girl as he was by Nikki, though this one is more (physically) painful. She kisses him, punches him again, hugs him, cries, and then punches him again. And she's an orphan.
* Squidward Tentacles of ''WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants'' could be seen as a Tsundere. He's usually cranky, cantankerous, and rude. But sometimes, when Spongebob [[BreakTheCutie has been pushed a little too far]] and [[CryCute starts to cry]], [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold Squidward]]'s heart will positively ''melt'' and he'll do everything he can to fix the situation. Then he'll go right back to being a [[HiddenHeartOfGold grouch]] after Spongebob has cheered up. He has shown and even blurted out that he does like Spongebob, but most of the time he's too proud to admit it.
* ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'': Lapis Lazuli is bitter and rather harsh towards everybody but Steven. She eventually warmed up to Peridot many episodes later, though.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Superjail}}'': One could argue that the Mistress is this towards the Warden. She mainly acts ''tsun-tsun'' towards him, but every once in a while will let her ''dere'' side slip through. Combined with BelligerentSexualTension.
* Think one male tsundere is rare? How about ''two'' of them put into the same environment? [[BoisterousBruiser Buck Tuddrussel]] and [[RobotBuddy Larry 3000]] from ''WesternAnimation/TimeSquad'' refer to each other with great amounts of disdain in their default tsun mood, but if placed in a proper situation, can be nice, open and protective over each other (though they are never at the same time). This is more prominent with Larry, who is not subject to TestosteronePoisoning.
* ''WesternAnimation/TotalDramaIsland'':
** Courtney is a good example of Harsh, although she can be Sweet, since she's generally polite if bossy, but if you get her mad, she gets bitchy and violent. She instantly takes a loathing for Duncan, yet she ends up [[SleepCute falling asleep next to him]] in the Sucky Outdoors, and then kisses him in Basic Straining.
--> '''Duncan:''' ''(with his and Courtney's fake antlers stuck together)'' What can I say, the girl can't keep her antlers off me. \\
''(Courtney responds by kicking him in the groin)''
** Gwen starts out acting Tsun, takes awhile to warm up to people, but in the end she agrees to go out with Trent. By the second season they broke up. Then third season, its the same with Duncan.
** Duncan is Tsun-Tsun to nearly everybody, but dere-dere to Gwen and Courtney (until the third season where he is more Tsun-Tsun to her than anybody else).
** Heather during ''World Tour'' is a perfect example of Harsh, going for the cold shoulder and insults towards Alejandro. She's even denying she likes him to Chef, and then stating in another (empty) confessional that he's "just ''so… perfect'''!"
* This was the personality given to Zelda in the animated ''[[WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfZelda Legend of Zelda]]'', although usually only when dealing with [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold Link]].
%%* CuteMonsterGirl Callie Maggotbone on ''WesternAnimation/UglyAmericans'' is a ''chaotic'' Harsh.
* [[WesternAnimation/RegularShow Rigby]] was originally shown as one towards Eileen.
* Zenblock of ''WesternAnimation/SuperNoobs'' is this towards the Noobs and the cultures of Earth as he is a type 1 non-romantic, male version of this. He doubts the Noobs experience and skill but warms up to them after they help him achieve his dream of winning the recruiter of the year award. As for the cultures of Earth, he is more hesitant in exploring it as his best friend, Memnock is childishly fascinated with exploring but Zenblock makes some exceptions if it involves candy or toys, or offers him competition against Memnock.
* Cera of [[WesternAnimation/TheLandBeforeTime The Land Before Time]], especially after [[TookALevelInKindness taking a level in kindness]] in the sequels. Bossy, egotistical, and stubborn, but is a sweet girl on the inside [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold who will always be there]] for her friends when push comes to shove.

[[folder: Sweet (Dere)]]
* ''WesternAnimation/TheAmazingChanAndTheChanClan'': Anne Chan is mildly Sweet: Her dere-dere side is laid back and a PluckyGirl and her tsun-tsun is argumentative and competitive (especially around [[AsianAndNerdy Tom and Alan]]).
* Katara from ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' acts as the kind and mature TeamMom, but she's also ''very'' stubborn and hot-tempered.
* Linka from ''WesternAnimation/CaptainPlanetAndThePlaneteers''. No, the usually nice and cool girl doesn't like [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold Wheeler]] ''that way'' or so she says, but she's been [[AlmostKiss close to kissing him several times]] and is his ClingyJealousGirl whenever a female expresses interest in him.
* Kuki aka Numbuh 3 from ''WesternAnimation/CodenameKidsNextDoor'' is [[{{Kawaiiko}} EXTREMELY cute and sweet…]] but she's very, ''very'' obstinate and prone to mood swings, especially when [[BelligerentSexualTension arguing with]] [[PuppyLove Wally aka Numbuh 4]].
* Beebe Bluff from ''WesternAnimation/{{Doug}}'' is pretty friendly, though she's a bit of a tsun-tsun around Skeeter, who it's confirmed she has a crush on.
* [[NiceGirl Nazz]] from ''WesternAnimation/EdEddNEddy'' is normally quite sweet and easy-going, but sometimes she can be pretty harsh.
* Wanda from ''WesternAnimation/FairlyOddparents'', who tends to do all the {{Tsundere}} methods as foil to her idiot husband Cosmo.
* [[ButtMonkey Meg Griffin]] from ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' is Sweet. She is usually dere-dere, but acts tsun-tsun to people she doesn't like or people who usually piss her off. Her mother Lois Griffin also applies to this. Lois is usually kind and polite with others, but she has an aggressive and short-tempered side, usually caused by her husband Peter's stupidity, impulsiveness, and eccentric plans that often blow up in his face.
* Yo from ''WesternAnimation/FanboyAndChumChum'' is a GenkiGirl with [[LoveMakesYouCrazy obsessive tendencies towards the latter protagonist]] by default. Occasionally, especially when dealing with Fanboy, she will switch into tsun mode and become much less pleasant.
* Frankie from ''WesternAnimation/FostersHomeForImaginaryFriends'' is very warm and nurturing towards the imaginary friends, but doesn't take too kindly to Mr. Herriman's pestering or Bloo's madness.
* Giggles, of ''WebAnimation/HappyTreeFriends'' infamy. While normally one of the sweetest and most social members of the cast, she absolutely [[BerserkButton flips her shit whenever she sees someone harming the environment.]]
* June from ''WesternAnimation/KaBlam'' is usually sweet and laid-back. However, when something bad happens (like Henry giving her crap or something won't go her way), she's pretty tough. She's also always doing something mean to Henry (even though they're friends), however, she has a huge crush on him.
* Allison "Allie" Underhill from WesternAnimation/{{Kaijudo}}.
* Mitsuki from ''WesternAnimation/KappaMikey'', for Mikey. She is soft, dependent, shy, and kind the point where nobody else acknowledges her and they often forget her name, but in one episode it's revealed that [[spoiler:she used to be a secret agent before breaking into show business and can injure nearly anyone if need be]].
* By contrast to the obviously Harsh William Murderface, Toki Wartooth from ''WesternAnimation/{{Metalocalypse}}'' is a Sweet tsundere, usually being the nicest guy in the band, and treats every band member with a calm attitude… except Skwisgaar, to whom he is specifically tsun towards. Still, it is pretty obvious that he does have a crush on him. Yes, [[HoYay a male tsundere having the hots for another male character]].
* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' has Twilight Sparkle: She was a Nice Girl around Celestia, Spike, and her family, but her newfound friends set her off. There's also Princess Luna, as seen in her Season 2 debut. Her emotions and personality paint her as such when only the audience (and then Twilight) get to see how hurt she really feels.
* Miss Grotke from ''WesternAnimation/{{Recess}}'' is for 95% of the time an {{Adorkable}} sweetheart. But when provoked… BewareTheNiceOnes.
* The titular character of ''WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants'' can be said to be this. He's normally a happy-go-lucky sweetheart with a kind word for everyone. But when [[BreakTheCutie pushed too far over the edge]], he can be a real {{Jerkass}}. He always snaps back relatively quickly, though.
* Nova from ''WesternAnimation/SuperRobotMonkeyTeamHyperforceGo'' is usually very nice and likable if feisty, until it's time for battle or Sprx's cockiness and flirting set her off.
* Wilma Flintstone from ''WesternAnimation/TheFlintstones'' is a good example of Sweet. She's all [[NiceGirl sweetness and light]] until her husband Fred goes from JerkWithAHeartOfGold to JerkAss. ''The Flintstones'' are probably a good example of what happens when a pair with BelligerentSexualTension eventually gets their act together and finally [[CannotSpitItOut Spit It Out]].
* Emily in the new ''WesternAnimation/ThomasTheTankEngine'' seasons. She's normally quite sweet until something sets her off. Usually when [[{{Mooks}} the trucks]] start giving her crap, Thomas acts like a BrattyHalfPint, James acts like a JerkAss, Gordon like an UpperClassTwit, or if she just gets [[{{Pun}} ideas above her station]].
* ''WesternAnimation/XMenEvolution'': Miss Jean Grey normally acts like a sweet and cheerful CoolBigSis towards the younger kids, but goes cranky when Scott or Duncan are around, though mostly when they're being idiots or butting heads. Then there's her hidden jealousy against Rogue or Taryn…
* Maurecia from ''WesternAnimation/{{Wayside}}'' is a GenkiGirl who is extremely friendly and liked by everyone in Wayside School. And she expresses her [[AllLoveIsUnrequited unrequited love]] for Todd by hitting him, ''constantly''.


* Minerva Mink from ''WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}}''. For the most part, she's Tsun-Tsun, but at the end of any of her skits, she'll go Dere-Dere towards an attractive male.
* In ''WesternAnimation/FantasticFourWorldsGreatestHeroes'', Sue went from being an extreme dere (a dere-mat, actually) to almost Harsh--although with those three guys, it's understandable. This was probably spun off from her updated profile in the comics--she's much more aggressive with her powers, to the point where she's now regarded as the most powerful member of the team.
* Turanga Leela from ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}''. She has a love for violence and hit mostly everyone at least once, besides her love interest Fry. She is usually Sweet but Fry makes her irritated often, especially in the beginning. His stupidness, annoyingness, and immaturity brings it out of her turning her Harsh. Leela at first didn't feel the same but as the series progressed, she fell in love with him, in part to Fry's persistence and also his consideration of her feelings.
--> '''Leela''': Fry, you ''idiot''! You noble ''idiot''!
* Velma in ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooMysteryInc'' has become this, being sweet and romantic when she's alone with Shaggy but then becoming aloof and irritated when Scooby horns in.
* Kimmy in ''WesternAnimation/SymBionicTitan'' seems to go back and forth between both types. She's introduced to us as being rather cold and snobby, but she becomes sweeter as she warms up to Newton.
* Tasha in ''WesternAnimation/TheBackyardigans'' might be one of those. Most of the time, she's bossy and wants everything her way, but during the "Giant Problem" episode she becomes a playful GenkiGirl Giant.
* Chelsea in ''WesternAnimation/{{Clarence}}'' is fairly friendly and sociable and [[spoiler: kisses Sumo]] in "Too Gross For Comfort." However, she is also very hot-tempered and blunt, saying whatever is on her mind no matter the situation.
Finally. Let's get back to {{Tsundere}}
