Kamidere

Kamidere describes a character that treats themselves as some type of god/ goddess. These characters usually aim for some type of world domination plan to create their version of an ideal world, at any cost. Given this, the character usually has great knowledge in their specific fields that causes them to become quite arrogant and demanding.

However, this character can also be used in series where the character would say what is on their mind as they find no shame due to the fact that they think they’re always right. Another example is where the character refers themselves as a god in a particular subject but has no other expertise in other fields.

Kamidere is derived from the term ‘kami’ (god) and ‘dere dere’ (affectionate/lovey dovey).

Example

A typical example of this type of character is Light Yagami in the series “Death Note”. He is a righteous, hardworking and talented individual who can predict all possible situations in any given problem thanks to his nature of being a natural genius.

When he finds the Death Note, a notebook that has the power to kill anyone whose name is written in it, he begins to write the names of criminals to create his ideal world where there will be no more crimes committed and, ultimately, no more criminals.
