Himedere / Oujidere

Himedere / Oujidere describes a character that treats themselves like a princess/prince regardless of their background. These characters tend to speak highly of themselves and often like to command and rule over others seeming quite arrogant and blunt, like Tsundere and Kuudere.

However, unlike the two, they are often able to become friendly to others who they deem as “on the same level” as them. Towards their love interest, they tend to act sweet but keeping their pride intact. For example, “Come pick me up at 7pm and you better open the door for me!”

Himedere/ Oujidere is derived from the term ‘hime’ (princess) / ‘ouji’ (prince) and ‘dere dere’ (affectionate/lovey dovey).

Example

An example of this would be Mio Aoyama from the series “Kami nomi zo Shiru Sekai” (The World God Only Knows). She is a highs-school student who is seen as an arrogant character who looks down on others as they are just “commoners”. She comes from a wealthy background due to the fact that she is the only daughter of the president of the prestigious Aoyama Corporation.

This changes, however, as she interacts with Keima Katsuragi (Male Protagonist) where she becomes less hime and more dere dere.
