15 Best Kamidere Characters in Anime

Confidence is important in life.

But being a Kamidere is some different kind of confidence.

These are some best examples.

What Does Kamidere Mean?

The anime world is filled with “deres”. There’s the Tsundere and the Yandere.

There is nothing like a Kamidere or a character with an underlying God complex. 

These characters believe their worldview is unalterable and will ignore any limitations imposed on them by society. 

They believe that they are right 100% of the time, even when confronted with evidence to the contrary.

Kamidere can be viewed as arrogant.

They are nevertheless memorable and entertaining.

He is open to making questionable decisions as long as they help him achieve his goals.

Lelouch believes he is superior to the opposition during battles, which makes sense given his godlike analytical abilities.
