The RPG Where Tsundere And Yandere Are Classes

By Spencer . July 10, 2012 . 2:02am

Right, so if you haven’t heard the term "tsundere" before it’s a way to describe someone who is initially cold to you, but warms up over time. "Yandere" is a person that’s obsessed to the point of getting violent. Both of these are common anime or moe tropes in Japan.


In New Class of Heroes: Chrono Academy, these character traits are classes.

The tsundere class uses spears along with ice and recovery magic. (Haha, Acquire.) Yandere characters can equip swords plus darkness and support magic.


New Class of Heroes: Chrono Academy has a lot of jobs for players to choose from. Here’s what they announced so far:

General studies
Black Mage
Younger Brother/Sister
Martial Artist
White Mage
Older Brother/Sister
Ninja / Kunoichi
Magical Boy/Girl
Fallen Angel
Spirit User

  • Hahaha…

    Tsundere and Yandere???
    Tsundere and Ice eh…I see….
    Yandere with sword??Why not an axe??

    All Party Tsundere….Denial lvl : Max

  • epy

    I think people that do not know what tsundere means are somewhat uncommon on this site. Yandere is a little bit more out there though.

  • slap in a loli character and holy sh*t just take my very soul

    • Herok♞

       They already have a younger sister class.

      • are there subclasses? :P

  • Tsundere and Yandere as class??? Well… This is new…

    I take the Yandere then… She would make my enemies shiver in fear….

    • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

      ……Won’t you also there?^^

      • I will…. That is if she doesn’t end me on a boat….

  • RaineNythra

    That, sadly, is the old meaning of tsundere. These days its more along the lines of acting like a bitch, having a moment of dere, then going back to being bitchy.

    • Dylan Anantha

      I agree, Tsundere’s are no longer what they used to be.

  • Is it really safe or wise to let the Yandere wield a weapon?

  • gaiahatergaia

    If this doesn’t get localized then i’ll lost faith in humanity.

    • MrKappa

      Game is on PSP in the year 2012 = -1% chance of localization.
      We only got one of the games while GW is stuck in limbo working on 2 and will probably cancel. Thus we’re not getting 3, final or even 3D let alone this.

      Hate to say but we gotta be real here :/

      • Christopher Nunes

        Damn, I was considering of buying this game now because of the Tsundere class! I love Tsundere girls! Especially pink-haired ones (except Sakura from Naruto… not a very good Tsundere in my opinion).

  • ivanchu77

    Isn´t a little dangerous for the rest of the team to have a yandere in the party?

  • evilmoogle

    ok, where is the hot-blooded/manly class?

    • Dylan Anantha

      Kamina class, it would be awesome.

  • Victoria [Rokuso3]

    Swords are for heroes. Real yanderes use AXES!!

    • Kai2591

      My thoughts exactly!

  • Dylan Anantha

    Squad of Yandere girls, even the final boss will cower in fear when they stare at him.

  • Spider-Man

    As a man who loves Yandere girls and wants to be stalked/threatened/obtain a sail boat/etc ending, this pleases me greatly. I’ll be importing this unless it gets localized? ):

    Also, letting a Yandere use a weapon is exciting, ya bunch of wimps! Maybe I’ll flirt with a Tsundere girl in front of my Yandere stalker and watch the magic happen!

    • You know what… I want to see that happen. I’m more on the side of Tsundere myself, but there is definitely something intriguing about the violent tendencies of the Yandere.

  • dern, no spellswords

  • Nicholas Yee

    Did i just see mahou shounen? 
    Boys with spell wands LOL

  • Herok♞

    This is the most Japanese thing I have seen first thing in the morning and thats why I love it.

  • keithmaxx

    Lol, what wacky ideas for an RPG! Consider me intrigued.

  • katzedan

    “Younger Sister” + “Tsundere”

    combine the two and I would love to play this just to hear they sayin “U-Urusai! I-It’s not that I kill this beast for you! It’s just that it was in my way and that’s it b-baka onii!” xD

  • zferolie

    This game seems very interesting, and would love to try it out.

    Unfortunately, I doubt I will… since it is on the PSP. Why are they still making PSP games when the Vita is out? Sure, in japan the PSP is still going… kinda, but in America it’s deader then dead, meaning 0 chance it will come here.

    A shame really, since there are quite a few PSP games I would love to get.

    I wonder… could I download this game on my Japanese account on my PS3, then upload it to my vita using my American PS3 account. I can play Japanese demos I have downloaded on my Japanese account with my american account.

  • Kai2591

    Tsunderes ftw!

  • amagidyne

    Does this game have anything to do with Class of Heroes at all? =/

    I don’t have anything against the classes. They already had a catgirl race, and this is only a little bit weirder. I just wish we had more Wizardry-style games on the PSP.

    • It doesn’t really. It’s a whole different direction.

  • Alexander Aubert

    OH LOL

  • Darkrise

    Yandere all the way! I want this game even more!!!!!

  • Okay, this just sold me on this game. Now I must import when it releases! And then hope for a translated release as well…

  • Awww yeah, gotta love them dere’s! ^_^

    Yuno Gasai would be proud to know that she is now considered a “class” as well as all the other dere’s in the world XD

    • M’iau M’iaut

      But none of them ever show much dere. :P

      • $733987

        She will… after she chop off your head.

      • Darkrise

        Oh I beg to differ ( ̄ー ̄)

        • Christopher Nunes

          Holy crud, that was scary as hell! o_0
          What kind of Visual Novel is it? Does it have anything beside the Yandere?

          • Darkrise

            Nah, it’s just an all-yandere drama CD. xD

          • Christopher Nunes

            Found that out after looking at the comments in the video… still the music and the way the girls talked are scary! Though I’m not that entire freaked out by it, but it does give me goose bumps a bit.

            By the way, compare to Corpse Party and the Yandere CDs which is scarier? If you’ve played the Corpse Party game. I’m kinda curious because people say Corpse Party is scary and I’ve read the dialogue from the English translation of the Yandere CDs and the imagination of what happens to the listener/MC and some of the girls is scary but I’m not entirely spooked.

          • Darkrise

            Hm, I’d say Corpse Party is scary with headphones and playing in a dark-lit room, yandere no onna no ko is a bit surprising but not scary for me, mostly because I really love yandere’s (*´▽`*). I’m actually not that far into Corpse Party, still on the first chapter because of that damned infirmary ghost and I’ve never gone back to it for months. I actually felt a bit spooked with some random noises in the bgm of the game.

        • M’iau M’iaut

          @Raiu   Sorry folks, still see more yan than dere.

        • M’iau M’iaut

          In honor of the Great Yandere Debate of 2012, I am proud to present — for all those who were unable to participate….


          Please note you posted the same d*mn link there too!

          • Darkrise

            Has it really been a year already? We should have a yearly yandere debate from now on. Haha, seems so, I thought I posted something else.

          • M’iau M’iaut

            That was actually like a week before the original VDay thread. So ya NOTE TO ISHAAN/SPENCER.

            February 14, 2013 — LOVE YOUR FELLOW POSTER III

            June 4, 2013 — LET THE KNIVES ENTER YOUR BACK

      • Here’s another to show the dere side of a yandere…. Also an alternate ending of the infamous Boat Ending…

        Note: Enable Subtitles with the little “cc” box below the video player…

  • Is it only me, or did I just thought that I saw Rutile from Disgaea 3 Vita on the Image ? :D

  • M’iau M’iaut

    Earth to blue-haired stalker girl…come in blue-haired stalker girl.

    …no response

    • Hmm….. I think Yuno just answer your call. Have a choppy relationship FUN!!

  • Safros9

    I thought we were getting a new Class of Heroes for the U.S… so it’s not this one then? If not then which one is it? I do like the look of this one though, something I’d definitely buy.

    • Alphabet Soup

      Class of Heroes 2 was the one they did a Kickstarter for and even though it failed, I believe we are still getting a digital copy.

      • Safros9

        Is the second one a lot different that this one? 
        I also played the first one for a few minutes, are there any major changes from the first one to the second one?

  • So then, I could make up a harem party?  Consisting of the younger sister, Tsundere, Yandere, and MC?


    • $733987

      Any harem party consisting of a yandere is an instant bad end. Because of reasons.

      • And god help you if you include a gay bishie in it. He will get a-head of himself >.<

        • Göran Isacson

          That poor, poor guy. To think, he could have had it good in the alternate world with the cult-leader girl, but the True Ending would not let us have nice things…

  • Jake Deerberg

    I want a Tsundere harem… just… because

    • M’iau M’iaut

      Just because you want to set the record for dying by the most horrid means in history.

  • Amine Hsu Nekuchan

    Now I need Cooldere.

  • OH YES! BUT! Yandere is out of my boat, so go find your Yukki somewhere else, stalker-chan.

    Harem Party Harem Party. 

    • Juuu

       Is it a NICE boat? ;]

      I would purchase this merely because these are obviously the best classes ever. I DO advise you all to at least use one yandere…After all, she saved her best moves for you and loves you so much! Yandere might MAKE you pick her….

  • David García Abril

    Wait, the Kuudere archetype gets no love? :_(

  • Spirit Macardi

    I really hope we get this game, since it looks absolutely adorable. I’ve really liked the Class of Heroes games, and this is the first one where you actually get to see the cute characters on the screen.

    Plus it’s for PSP, which is good news for me since I don’t want a Vita.

  • Too bad it is on PSP. The likelihood of localization is low.

  • M’iau M’iaut

    For some reason I am suspecting this game will be like FFXI — Dragoons will never get a party invite.

  • Z3

    Yuno Gasai <3

  • Andrew Austin

    I-i-it’s not like I’d buy this game for this or anything. I just really want to play a CoH game, make no mistake.

  • No Dandere or Kuudere? BOO!

    *throws tomatoes*

    • M’iau M’iaut

      Squirrrely, you’re so TSUN.

      • W-what do you mean? No buy from me if there’s not danderes!

        I guess some tsundere love can’t hurt… N-not implying that I like tsunderes or anything! Gosh Sir M’iau M’iaut, look what you’ve done to me!

  • Blesmi

    “someone who is initially cold to you, but warms up over time.”

    Oh man, the OG definition of tsundere, and imo the superior one than the version that is around these days. Hopefully we get this game because that’s pretty funny though.

  • Darkrise

    Can’t believe I forgot about this but this should clear things up even more for those who are still confused about Yandere/Tsundere. I present to you, THE DERE SCALE! *~DUNDUNDUN~*

    • M’iau M’iaut

      Whole lotta Rie going on — on both sides of the fulcrum.

    • Mizore? Yandere? Oh no you don’t.

    • nothing956

      Huh i don’t remember uploading that pic to fanpop but it says I did. I probably just forgot.

  • So…if you have a party of Yanderes only, and they fall in love with the same person, will they all kill each other and cause a “Game OVER”? XD

  • BadenBadenPrinny

    Yeeeeeeeeeeeeeees, my Yandere army liiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiives

  • Nikolai Sumcad

    I do love my Yanderes.

  • Göran Isacson

    Now here’s my question: are yan/tsunderes available as both boys and girls? Looks like this game lets both genders have these classes, which intrigues me because of reasons.

  • *Reads classes* I need more more info I’m am buying this game!!!! (✿❛◡❛)ノ:♦♫♦*

  • @Darkrise:disqus, @Raiu:disqus, @facebook-100001466297520:disqus, @dusk:disqus, and @M’iau M’iaut (For some reason Disqus wont let me @ your name lol)

    You are all now my Dere Debate Team =^_^=

    Let the debating begin! =P    

  • Visa Vang

    So, you’re saying:
    “If you don’t get, it’s your loss.” Right?

  • Cool. Yanderes are my fetish.
    Who are these classes tsun-tsun and yan-yan for anyways?

  • sherimae1324

    I…. WiLL……. dEFinItELy…..LiKE…..tHIs…..

  • HatsyaSouji

    Diablon Yandere loves Celestian Priest = There’s a chance that yandere loves the angel but she began poking her beloved.

    I wonder if that equation’s now possible, since in COH3, they now have relationship map system instead of the COH1 racial risk/benefits.

  • majestix1988

    THEY FORGOT KUUDERE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
