A particular style of drawing eyes in {{manga}} and {{anime}} where the outer corners slant upwards, ending in a distinct sharp point, used in contrast to the traditional {{Moe}} soft drooping style, [[TaremeEyes Tareme]]. Tsurime symbolizes strong will, arrogance, or pride in a character. Most noticeable in female designs (since it plays against the stereotype) and is commonly an attribute of {{Tsundere}}s, {{Kuudere}}s and particularly Badass {{Action Girl}}s. It's also a common (although not guaranteed) trait of the {{Seme}} in the BoysLoveGenre. Otherwise, tsurime are quite prevalent in male characters because it conveys strong masculinity.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'':
** Despite being soft-spoken and calm to the point of [[EmotionlessGirl emotionless]], Rei has sharp, red Tsurime Eyes. This foreshadows that in spite of her cold attitude at first, she has [[SugarAndIcePersonality a kind, warm side]] to her which Shinji has the luck to find out. [[spoiler: And it also shows that even if she acted like an ExtremeDoormat before, she later gains a backbone, enough to reject Gendo and his Instrumentality plan, to side fully with his son Shinji.]]
** Kaworu also has similar red Tsurime Eyes that contrast Shinji's blue TaremeEyes, to signify him as a positive ShadowArchetype of Shinji. [[spoiler: They also show that he and Rei share the same background: both are not (fully) human, Kaworu is a full-on angel while Rei is only half human.]]


* Shana of ''LightNovel/ShakuganNoShana''. Naturally, since she's the [[Pantheon/{{Emotion}} quintessential]] {{Tsundere}}.

* Played with in ''Manga/KomiSanWaKomyushouDesu'', where the titular Komi has tsurime eyes, which add to her aloof, inapproachable appearance. In reality, however, this appearance also comes from the fact that she has NoSocialSkills, and she's drawn in a simpler style with huge TaremeEyes when things are shown from Komi's perspective.
