15 Best Yandere Characters in Anime, Ranked
“If I can’t have them, no one can” is the motto for Yandere type archetype characters. The Yandere is a Dere type that combines Yanderu, meaning mentally ill, and Dere, meaning lovey-dovey. Together you get someone willing to do anything to end up with the one they love. Anything.

Yandere anime characters are obsessed with their love interest. On the outside, they play it off that they are kind and sweet characters to everyone, but on the inside are willing to go as far as murder if someone gets in their way. This list looks at the greatest Yandere characters in anime.
Updated June 17th, 2020 by Ericka Blye:While pink-haired school girls are typically the face of the trope, there have been series that broaden the scale of what a Yandere looks like. While the majority of Yandere characters in anime are still girls, there have been a number of male ones as well. Yandere characters have also been included in much more light-hearted series where their dark obsession for the one they love gets put in a more comical spin and a less, well, lethal one.
15 Rolo Lamperogue - Code Geass: Lelouch Of The Rebellion
For many Yandere characters, romantic love drives their obsessive behavior. But that isn't the case for all Yandere characters, as Rolo Lamperouge from Code Geass is driven by brotherly love. While he masquerades as Lelouch's innocent and kind-hearted little brother, in actuality he's a heartless cold-blooded killer.
While sent to spy on Lelouch for a year, he grows very attached to him and even grows jealous of Lelouch's real sister, Nunnally. This jealousy is part of the reason he ends up killing one of Lelouch's friends, Shirley, after she expresses her desire to help reunite Lelouch with his sister.
14 Kotonoha Katsura – School Days
While the anime has controversial opinions on whether School Days is worth the watch or not, Kotonoha Katsura is a Yandere that takes her love to the extreme. She rivals Sekai Saionji for Makoto Itou’s love.
The two go back and forth having encounters with Makoto where he can’t decide on which girl means more to him. Each time Makoto spends time with Kotonoha or Sekai, the other steps it up. However, it’s Kotonoha who takes things to the extreme.
13 Misa Amane – Death Note
Misa Amane fits the standard definition of Yandere. In Death Note, she is willing to do anything for her love Kira. When Light first started killing criminals as Kira, he ended up killing the criminals that killed Misa’s parents. To thank him, Misa is willing to be Light’s tool so that he can create a new world.
RELATED: 10 Best Kamidere Characters in Anime, Ranked

The Yandere in Love Tyrant is Akane Hiyama, whose love interest is Seiji Aino. Seiji has been cursed by Guri’s Kiss Note. When two names are written in the Kiss Note, they will become a couple. Seiji needs to find a girlfriend otherwise he will die so he sets out for Akane.
Akane heard that Guri and Seiji kissed when Guri misspelled Seiji’s name in her Kiss Note. Akane enters her Yandere mode trying to kill both but stops when Guri pairs her with Seiji in her Kiss Note. Seiji is then paired with other girls in the Kiss Note, but Akane will not have any of it.
11 Shuu Tsukiyama - Tokyo Ghoul
Another male yandere is Shuu Tsukiyama from Tokyo Ghoul. Shuu Tsukiyama gives off the impression that he's an intelligent and charming young man who wants to befriend Kaneki. However, he uses this impression to trick his "prey" and lure them to the Ghoul Restaurant to be eaten.

5 Mizuki Himeji - Baka To Test
Mizuki Himeji from Baka to Test is usually very sweet and trusting, but when it comes to her crush, Akihisa Yoshii, flirting with other girls, she shows a much darker and dangerous side.
Because the series is a comedy, Himeji's Yandere nature is played for laughs and isn't taken too seriously. Also, the only person who seems to be in danger when this side of Himeji comes out is Akihisa.
4 Kaede Fuyou – Shuffle
In the Shuffle! anime, Kaede Fuyou is a kind and sweet girl, that suffers trauma from her mother dying. Her childhood friend is Rin Tsuchimi. Kaede wants to hang out with Rin but is pushed aside when Rin chooses to spend time with Asa Shigure.

2 Yukako Yamagishi - JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Diamond Is Unbreakable
Yukako Yamagishi is a Stand user who can freely manipulate her hair. Though she first appears to be sweet and demure, she quickly shows the darker side to her nature to her crush and obsession Koichi Hirose. Many speculate that the Yandere trope of Yanderes typically being high school girls came to be because of Yukako Yamagishi.
Hirohiko Araki, the creator of JoJo, mentions that her personality was designed to counter the "moe" character archetype that many female characters had. And it's for these reasons that many consider Yukako Yamagishi to be the first "official" Yandere character.
1 Satou – Happy Sugar Life
The greatest Yandere in anime is Satou Matsuzaka. Satou tops the list because she achieves the relationship she wants in Happy Sugar Life. Satou lives with Shio Koube, a young child not allowed to see the outdoors. Satou just wants to live her happy sugar life with Shio and nothing will stop her.

Isaiah is a student at the University of Western Ontario. Currently he is studying Media and Journalism and working towards a degree in Media, Information, Technoculture. In addition, he is minoring in Music. Isaiah enjoys writing and would love to pursue a career in Journalism if the opportunity presents itself. During his free time you can catch Isaiah playing video games, watching anime, writing, or attending concerts.
They are sickly sweet to the object of their obsessive affection, but inside they are just sick. They would do anything to be with the one they love, like killing all their friends, their pets, their parents, and person they are obsessed with. They are yandere girls, and they are as lovable as they are terrifying.
Unlike last month’s tsundere girls that only took stabs at you with hurtful words and the occasional high kick, yandere girls in anime are a breed apart. If it meant they could be with you forever, they would cut their own ear off all Van Gogh style and give it to you in gift wrap.
20 – Ayase Aragaki from Oreimo
Throughout Oreimo, Ayase is the best friend of Kirino and has little love for her older brother. While the majority of the series has her firmly typecast into the tsundere role, throughout the second season we watch her drift over the line into yandere territory where her obsession with Kirino hints at violent tendencies when it comes to Kyousuke. However, because it is all just for comedic effect and she never acts on it, she sits firmly on the bottom of a longer, more violent list of ladies.
19 – Medusa from Soul Eater
Although only for a relatively short period of time, you get to see Medusa put on a sweet cover to mask the crazy inside. Unlike many yandere girls that are obsessive in love, Medusa is obsessive n hate, seeking to destroy Death City and doing horrible things to everyone, even her own son, in the process.
18 – Kaede Fuyou from Shuffle
Kaede is one of the older yandere girls out there. Some might even say the first one, but likely not. Kaede Fuyou in Shuffle did kick off a new archetype for harem anime creators to cling on to, though. Just give a girl some seriously dead eyes and a vaguely murderous aura and she is sure to be a hit.
17 – Anna Nishikinomiya from Shimoneta
Anna is a relatively new among the ranks of yandere, but she made a big impression. At a glance, she is just another insane girl that gets jealous at the smallest things, but she goes a step beyond. Aside from stalking Tanukichi and threatening him with sharp objects, she also loves doing weird experiments on him, like trying to stick his bits in a vacuum cleaner and feeding him her “special” cookies.
16 – Mika Harima from Durarara!!
Mika is a stalker, and when you talk about yandere, or “lovesickness of the mind,” she pretty much fits the definition. She would smash anyone in her way, and that means even letting a mad doctor cut off her head so her guy will love her.
15 – Nadeko Sengoku from Bakemonogatari
By Monogatari standards, Nadeko used to be a normal girl, but then she fell in love. She fell so hard for Koyomi, but managed to keep the crazy in despite her admitted jealousy. Unfortunately, after a little provocation by Shinobu, she completely breaks. When she picked up the pieces, she became the first yandere deity in anime. So there’s that.
14 – Shion / Mion Sonozaki from Higurashi: When They Cry
Shion and Mion may seem like well-adjusted tsunderes, but when things take a turn for the insanely violent, as they always do in Higurashi, one of these twins is dangerously yandere complete with murder and cackling. Or is it both? Sometimes it is really confusing.
13 – Katsura Kotonoha from School Days
Anyone who has seen the end of School Days knows exactly what makes Katsura a yandere. Unfortunately, she ranks so low because, well, her yandere-ness literally came out of nowhere.
12 – Lucy from Elfen Lied
Lucy was probably the first yandere you were ever introduced to. However, due to discrimination and the military experiments during her upbringing, her love sickness is not actually love sickness at all. She acts very much on instinct, but that is enough to put her in this particular -dere category.
11 – Ryoko Asakura from The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya
Time travellers, aliens, espers – you expected all of that in The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, but you probably didn’t expect a yandere. While Ryoko excels academically and physically, her main purpose is to observe Haruhi and see how she reacts to particular situations. So when she wants to find something out, she is not above trying to kill Kyon to do it.
10 – Sekai Saionji from School Days
Unlike Kotonoha, throughout School Days you watch Sekai transform from silly love struck school girl to full-on violent psycho. While Kotonoha commits some serious brutality, the fact that you get to watch Sekai’s transformation makes her best girl.
9 – Misa Amane from Death Note
Misa-Misa is easily the chillest yandere you will ever see. She is not cackling like a crazy person, but rather being sweetly murderous and in love. She is obsessed with Light and willing to do anything to make his dream come true, even cut her own lifespan in half. She is even so very casual when it comes to talking about and killing anyone around them that might threaten his plans, especially other girls, even if it kind of throws a wrench into his plan by killing them in the first place.
8 – Hotogi Shirayuki from Aria the Scarlet Ammo
Like most yandere girls, Shirayuki looks perfect and beautiful on the outside, even to her obsession, Kinji. However, because she is so obsessively in love with Kinji, she is insanely jealous. Every time another girl gets near Kinji, she goes berserk and lets her psychotic kill instincts take over.
7 – Revy from Black Lagoon
Unlike your average yandere, Revy doesn’t wear her psychotic right on her sleeve. Instead, it is buried down under a layer of cool that made people fall in love with Black Lagoon. However, as cool as she is, let’s face it, she is a cold-blooded killer. Whether it is enjoying taking lives to murdering unarmed civilians, she does some seriously shady things.
6 – Nina Einstein from Code Geass
Most yandere girls pick knives as their weapon of choice to defend their beloved, but after an incident involving her beloved Princess Euphemia, Nina chooses nukes.
5 – Rena Ryuuguu from Higurashi: When They Cry
Rena starts off so cute that it hurts, but like a good yandere, there is a crazy violent girl in there that will haunt your nightmares. However, one could argue that Rena isn’t actually a true yandere so much as she becomes one due to supernatural circumstance.
4 – Megumi Shimizu from Shiki
Fork Yuuki Natsuno, there was nothing worse than his stalker country girl Megumi following him everywhere. Lucky for him, she died. Unluckily for him, she didn’t stay dead. What is worse than a obsessive stalker? An obsessive vampire stalker.
3 – Takami Minatsuki from Deadman Wonderland
Takami is one of the most clever yandere’s out there. She’s not particularly lovesick so much as she is just crazy. However, she is crazy like a fox, or at least crazy enough to act sweet and innocent until she can murder everyone around her horribly. Of course, because she trusts no one and was turned crazy by past experiences, she can never be a true yandere because she loves no one.
2 – Mikasa Ackerman from Attack on Titan
She may be your favorite Attack on Titan character (as well as the one with the best abs), but she is, by definition, a yandere. After being saved by Eren and his family, she is as obsessive and protective of him as a bulldog, putting herself into dangerous situations if it means saving his life.
1 – Yuno Gasai from Future Diary
If you have any experience with Future Diary, you already knew that Yuno would be number one. How could she not? She is famous for her nasty habit of trying to kill Yukiteru’s friends, family, and enemies alike. She even tries to keep him as a drugged up prisoner so that he won’t leave her. She’s crazy, but lovable … but also really kind of terrifying.

Top 30 Yandere Characters in Anime
On one hand, Yandere characters in Anime are cute, they are endearing, kind and loveable. On the other hand, they can flip a switch and become murderous and violent in a second. While we love to love these characters, they are ones to watch out for. However, they do offer the element of surprise, which is what you want out of a good anime!
If you have a love for all things Yandere, here are the top 30 to have a look at.
1. Lucy – Elfen Lied
Also known as Kaede, Lucy was one of the first proper Yandere to hit the anime scene. Lucy was tested upon and put through ruthless torture by government organizations. She was forced to use her powers to torment subjects. She manages to escape her captors and tormentors, but in the process is injured. This injury causes her to gain a new personality – Nyu. Nyu is childlike and gentle, whereas Lucy can be violent and homicidal. The switch between these two happens in a snap, and those who expect the childlike personality of Nyu can be hit with the sadism of Lucy in an instant.
2. Mikasa Ackerman – Attack on Titan
Mikasa is gentle and kind. She is the adoptive sister of Armin. Through her past she has an unbreakable bond with Eren and helps him whenever he needs her. Her timid and genius mind does not attest to her incredible fighting skills and physical strength. She lives her life to protect Eren, and her kindness becomes obsolete when he is in danger.
3. Sekai Saionji – School Days
Sweet and cheerful are perfect words to describe her. She even goes out of her way to help her crush and hopefully-sweetheart, Makoto, try and get close to the girl that he is after – Kotonoha. While they are mostly positive, her emotions rule her and this can cause her to be quite a loudmouth and erratic at times. Even though she is small and cute, she can ruthlessly turn down any suitors who are not Makoto. She stands her ground, but is cute at the same time.
4. Anna Nishikinomiya – Shimoneta
Anna is the daughter of revered and respected parents. They enforce strict public laws and are incredibly influential. As a result of this, Anna takes on a similar responsibility. She is the president of the Student Council, but is soft spoken and naïve. However she is strong, headfast and determined. She used any means possible – sometimes even seen as lewd or obscene – to get rid of any materials within the school. Her soft spoken manner is no match for her strong sense of just getting things done.
5. Megumi Shimizu – Shiki
She is pretty and full of life. She feels her village keeps her down and so desperately longs for a life in the city. Her one-sided crush on Natsuno sees her daydreaming about him constantly. She is sweet and ambitious, but do not get on her wrong side.
6. Tsukiyama – Tokyo Ghoul
Tsukiyama is a fourth-year student studying Social Welfare at the Department of Human Sciences, he is also the infamous Gourmet Ghoul. He comes across as a gentleman, an intellectual and a man with opulent taste for the finer things in life. This façade very convincingly hides the darker side of his personality. He is narcissistically minded, he is disturbed and dark. When he takes on the form of a ghoul, his arrogance of being strong shines through. He like only eating the finest of specimens and prides himself as being at the top of the food chain. His high-life and opulence are no match for his sadistic and cunning darker side.
7. Katsura Kotonoha – School Days
Katsura is as shy and quiet as they come. She is beautiful, and this pushes away many females. It has also caused her to be shy and wary of boys. Her more reserved and cautious personality does not speak to her actual strength when push comes to shove. She is strong at heart, and her beauty hides this well.
8. Alois – Black Butler
Earl Alois Trancy, as he is more formally known. He is the head of the household and should be referred to as “Your Highness”. He is rather young, only 14 years old, so he looks childlike and weak. In reality though he is unpredictable and is demanding. He has a deep connection with his butler Claude, but pushes him to his limit as well. He has serious mood swings which often result in violence, after he is easily angered and pestered. He also tends to use harsh and foul language in these moods. Though through these darker traits, he has a cheerful disposition that many fall prey to.
9. Yuno Gasai – Future Diary
Yuno Gasai is unique and attractive. She has long pink hair and big pink eyes. Her hair is often pulled back in pigtails with the front locks adorned in bows. She is incredibly sweet and very feminine. Sometimes she can even be shy when around boys like Yukiteru. Below this mask of gentleness is a dark, cold and calculating character that will do anything and use anyone to get what she wants. She even resorts to violence and cruelty to achieve her goals, often leading to death and destruction. She is still super cute to look at though!
10. Ayase Aragaki – Oreimo
Sweet and friendly, Ayase is friends with Kirino and works alongside her as a model. She has an incredible hate for being lied to, and often becomes angered and violent if she suspects that someone may be lying to her. She has a distaste for anime, and from the news she believes that anime leads to otaku becoming criminals. She changes friendships and loves because of this view, altering her life.
11. Belarus – Hetalia Axis Powers
The story of Belarus and her brothers Ukraine and Russia is very complicated. She is young and naïve and is in a way, in love with her brother Russia who does not return the favour. Lithuania loves her however, but she quite openly hates him. She comes across as docile and very youthful, but beneath this there is a harsh and mad woman. Some claim that she is bipolar. She lashes out violently, even breaking all Lithuania’s fingers when out on a date. She carries a knife around and is a big fan of the occult. Her sweet and innocent looks in no way define her wild personality.
12. Takami Minatsuki – Deadman Wonderland
Minatsuki is the youngest of three – Yoh Takami and a Deadman Hummingbird. She has a dark past and upbringing. She seems to many to be a little girl who has no taste for violence and turns her back on her past. However, this is not the truth. She is an incredibly twisted individual who takes pleasure in seeing others writhe in pain. To show her violence and sadism – she uses blood from her ears to create whips to strike and restrain victims. These are her Branch of Sins. She is one of the more evil characters around, but hides it very well behind her appearance.
13. Misa Amane – Death note
Misa is a famous model. She is small and beautiful. Though she is one of the possessors of her own Death Book. She supports Light in his quest to rid the world of evil, using his Death Book. She cuts her lifespan in half twice to receive the Shinigami Rem, the ability to know someone’s name by just looking at their face. By having their name, she can end their life by writing it down in her Death Book. Her relationship with Light is not even, he simply uses her to fulfil his own goals. But her lust for death and power over life and death make her a dangerous character.
14. Shouko Kirishima -Baka to Test – Summoning the Beast
Shouko comes across as soft-spoken and reserved. She is the class representative and is highly intelligent. She is completely infatuated with Yuuji. This infatuation brings out the crazy in her. She is very assertive and possessive. When she sees him looking at girls, she would often poke his eyes to blur his vision. She has resorted to chains and locks to keep him with her, and even tasers him if she feels he is unfaithful. At one point her craziness drives her to submit a marriage certificate for the two of them, which is ultimately unsuccessful because she is underage. She is a good example of how a mix of love and possessiveness can lead to a bad end.
15. Nadeko Sengoku – Bakemonogatari
Nadeko is the main character of the show Nadeko Snake. She is shy and unassuming. She hides behind her bangs while fall down to almost cover her eyes.

She is polite and modest, and more often than not she is very soft-spoken. Throughout the series she shows signs of psychosis and violence after being shocked by sudden news.

Yandere’s, unlike Tsundere’s, have a higher chance of being in a relationship with the person they’re into. And staying in a relationship compared to Tsundere’s.
Maybe it’s their aggressive attitude and forceful behaviour. Or the simple fact they won’t take no sh*t from anyone.
Whatever the case – Yandere characters and their cliches are popular for a reason.
This list of Yandere characters will give you more than you need.
1. Esdeath ()
Esdeath is a stunning blue haired character, and better yet – an unlike the common school girl character you tend to see.
She’s raised to believe the weak die, and the strong survive. This harsh lesson is forced against her will and it becomes her motto in the main story of .
Esdeath’s the type of Yandere who’s unusually and smart. Strong enough to overwhelm most Men she falls for.
And her twisted bloodlust only makes her more dangerous, especially when she’s able to use beauty as a weapon.
2. Senjougahara Hitagi ()
Senjougahara is a complex Yandere compared to your average, run of the mill Yandere cliché.
She’s not overpowered because she has no super strength.
She’s not in control of a army compared to a character like Esdeath. But Senjougahara does have the attitude, the cold demeanour, and the cold sarcasm to make her stand out from most Yanderes.
Ignoring a character like Senjougahara when it comes to Yandere’s is like ignoring Goku when it comes to Shounen.
She’s relevant and has her own flavor.
3. Yuu Ibara (Ryuugajou Nanana)
Yuu Ibara is a savage, especially when she first shows up in Ryuugajou Nanana.
The first thing we see is Ibara kicking the living daylights out of Juugo, the main character.
Unlike Esdeath or Senjougahara, Yuu Ibara isn’t in a relationship and never insinuates or forces her way into one. She’s protective of the man she’s fallen for, and will kill for him if the situation calls for it.
Ibara’s a lot more sensitive and goes out of her way to cry for attention more than some Yandere characters.
4. Yuno Gasai (Future Diary)
Yuno Gasai is the queen when it comes to Yandere characters. Especially if we’re talking about female characters in particular.
Without Yuno – there wouldn’t be so many memes about Yandere’s in the community.
Yuno, just like Esdeath has been though a f*ck load of pain, agony, hardships and emotional damage in her childhood.
None of Yuno’s parents gave a F about Yuno’s happiness.
This is the reason Yuno Gasai is so messed up psychologically, and is the motivation for her Yandere, possessive tendencies. And violent, jealous behavior.
Even for the most petty reasons.
She’s one of the most famous Yanderes to keep the trend going.

5. Rem (Re:Zero)
Rem is a low-key Yandere.
She’s not as obvious, blatant or “text book cliché” as other Yandere characters. Probably because of Re:Zero’s plot and how it moves forward. As well as Rem’s involvement and how it plays out.
But if you’re a fan of Re:Zero and you pay attention to what’s happening in the story, there are subtle hints, sometimes more obvious hints of Rem’s Yandere behavior.
We see a little more of this in the 2nd half of Re:Zero.
The fact that Subaru’s in love with Emilia is what degrades Rem’s role as a Yandere to begin with.

6. Toga Himiko ()
Toga’s one of the newest Yandere’s on the block. And she’s made it clear from the moment she’s shown up in .
One of the times Toga’s “Yandere” comes out the closet is when she’s disguised as Camie (a little spoiler).
This is during the little tournament when she finds Deku alone.
Toga’s got the Yandere smile down to a T as well. It’s blatant from the moment she shows her face in .
7. (Elfen Lied)
from Elfen Lied is a Yandere from the horror genre. And another Yandere who can overwhelm most of anyone who tries to resist or challenge her.
is a Diclonius, a creature with vectors that vibrate at high speeds (similar to Accelerator from Railgun or Index).
She has one of the most tragic backstories and endings of any character, not just Yanderes.
8. Anna Nishikinomiya (Shimoneta)
Anna Nishikinomiya is like the Yandere version of Zero Two in some ways.
As a student council president she plays the part, but has sexual tendencies she hides from the public.
She’s insane over Tanukichi Okuma (main character) and acts like a drunk person with no hesitation or boundaries. And will walk through the gates of hell and back for the man she “loves”.

9. Rolo Lamperouge (Code Geass)
Rolo is a surprising Yandere. Not just because he’s a male character, but because of his shocking level of devotion, blind faith and love for Lelouch (the MC).
In Code Geass season 2 Rolo plays the role of little brother. With the exception of his Yandere tendencies and the drama that comes with his actions later on.
Rolo’s actions do make sense just like with Yuno Gasai, because of his past and the way he’s treated.
10. Mikasa Ackerman (Attack On Titan)
Mikasa Ackerman is a soldier (pun intended) when it comes to doing what needs to be done. Even if it’s grim, harsh or uncomfortable.
We see this from Mikasa in the first episode with the “flashback” childhood with Eren.
In the Attack On Titan plot – Mikasa Ackerman will jump through fire for Eren Jaeger. And won’t hesitate to get violent if anyone F’s with Eren.
It’s clear Mikasa’s a little unstable emotionally, especially when dealing with Eren in particular. A bit of an extremist.
11. Mion Sonozaki (Higurashi)
Mion Sonozaki is a girl who’s wise beyond her years, and has the kind of personality I love the most in Higurashi. She knows how to play dumb if needed, and is hiding a lot of secrets.
She’s not the typical Yandere from a romance point of view, but all the traits and extremes are definitely there.
Even more so when her childhood is revealed, and the disturbed lifestyle of the Sonozaki family.
Both Mion and her twin sister Shion are psychologically messed up in some way shape or form.
12. Rena Ryuugu (Higurashi)
Rena Ryuugu is another disturbed character in this horror series. Unlike Mion, Rena is more reserved and innocent on the surface. But she knows how to play dumb no different to Mion.
Her “Yandere” characteristics show up a couple of times in the series. But in general she has a taste for violence because of her unstable home life.
Rena turns out to be the more violent character out of all the relevant Higurashi girls.
13. Mikaela Hyakuya (Owari No Seraph)
Mikaela Hyakuya is the best friend of Yuichiro Hyakuya, the main character. But they’re both separated after a tragic event in the first episode.
Just like Yuu, Mikaela starts as a child slave. Captured by vampires. But Mikaela is turned into a vampire and becomes somewhat of a Yandere for Yuu.
It’s so intoxicating it’s almost as if Mikaela see’s Yuu as a boyfriend, even though that’s not the case.

14. Medusa Gorgon (Soul Eater)
Medusa The Witch, or Medusa Gorgon is as savage as she sounds. She’s a literal witch and one of the most original characters with a thirst for power, and a psychotic way of viewing the world.
She goes out her way to create her own child, and then treats that child as if it has no worth and doesn’t deserve her love or affection.
From a romantic stand point – Medusa is crazy for Dr Frankenstein, and has an intoxicating desire for him.

15. Shion ()
Shion is Rimuru Tempest’s right hand woman. When sh*t goes down, she’s one of the first to step in and take care of business.
In the case of this – Shion isn’t in a relationship with Rimuru Tempest.
In fact she’s part of the low-key harem in . But there’s no mistaking her Yandere characteristics.
Shion’s inner-Yandere just isn’t as heavy-handed and extreme compared to other Yandere types.
