⟡Yandere Types & Ratings⟡

Updated 6/17
Okay so as per request I decided to make a page on the yandere types and ratings :D. The way I rate yanderes and categorize them are a bit different than how others might do it so that is why I decided to make my own list and explain it down below ^^.

⟡Nanami's Yandere Types⟡
Clingy Type Yandere: These yanderes as you can tell by the name are clingy. And by clingy I mean super clingy. They can always be found right next the person of their affection and rarely never leave their side. They are usually close to their love interest and they tend to be the most childish out of all the yanderes. They are fine by just being by the side of their love interest but if someone comes and tries to take that spot away their yandere feelings awaken.
(Ex: Yeonho from Nameless)

Stalker Type Yandere: These types of yanderes usually never get a chance to win their love interest's affection. They watch at the side lines and admire their love interest from a far. They are usually the minor characters in a piece of work and sometimes end up sabotaging their love interest's life in the background. They could at the end of a series be revealed to be the mastermind for the main character's misfortune. They tend to be the "creepy" type.
(Ex: L.A. from El Cazador de la Bruja)

Obsessive Type Yandere: These types of yanderes admire their love interest almost as if they were a piece of artwork. They love every single feature of their love interest and would just love to place them like a mannequin in their room. They are similar to the stalker type in a way but not exactly since they usually make contact with their love interest. If someone begins to dirty their perfect picture frame they will take action.
(Ex: Manabe from Hakuji)

Possessive Type Yandere: These yanderes would like to own their love interest. Literally own them. They treat their love interest as their favorite dolls that they always keep with them. They absolutely can't stand the idea of anyone touching or even making eye contact with their "property". These yanderes are at the extreme end of the spectrum. They are the ones that make their love interest stay at home and forbid them from going outside. They tend to use force to get what they want.
(Ex: Kanato from Diabolik Lovers)

Manipulative Type Yandere: These yanderes as their name suggest control the person of their affection. Their love interest might actually love them already or that is what they make them believe. They manipulate their love interest in any way, shape or form. They would be the one to purposely put their love interest in danger in order to save them and make their love interest depend on them. Once they notice their love interest start to fall for them they will use the push and pull method or even be with another person to make their love interest jealous. They will not be satisfied until they feel that their love interest wants to monopolize them as much as the yandere wants to.
(Ex: Ren from Renai Shinjuu)

Overprotective Type Yandere: These yanderes are usually close to their love interest. They might not realize themselves that they are yandere because they think of their actions as just being protective, not overprotective. They love having their love interest depend on them and might keep them at their side under the excuse that they are protecting them. Like the clingy type they are okay with just being by the person of their affection but if they feel like their love interest will get "hurt" in any way they will cross the border and become more than just overprotective.
(Ex: Toma from Amnesia) 

Sadistic Type Yandere: These yanderes have a strong desire to "break" their love interest. As the name suggests they are sadistic in nature and have a fixation on corrupting or damaging their "pure/perfect" love interest. These types cause physical harm to their love interest because in their heads it's their way of showing affection. 
(Ex: Toma from Starstruck Love)

*Notice: All types of yanderes are capable of killing for their love interest. The Stalker and the Possessive types are the ones that are most capable of killing their love interest.* 

Ratings
 As explained in one of my posts, I am very strict when it comes to rating. The ratings are from 0-5. When I rate is is not necessarily how much I like the yandere rather it is the quality of the work and the yandere as a whole. A 5 yandere would be the yanderes from Nameless. I think Nameless is the best yandere work I have ever seen so far. The artwork, music, voices, plot, and quality of the yanderes and the game were amazing, this is why Nameless is the place mark for a 5. The lowest rating would be a 0. A 0 yandere would be a yandere who is a yandere but the work he is in is not of the best quality or the yandere himself is not fully developed. Borderline yandere do not have a rating. A 0 yandere would be Tamaki from Love Sushi Rangers. I absolutely love him but the quality of the game wasn't that great and his yandereness happened almost suddenly and it was very short and random. So keep in mind when I rate it is based on quality not likeability. For Music Videos ratings are based on a whole different scale and are compared to a set mark for a 5.

    1. I would categorize him as more overprotective though. I just used him for the example for overprotective but he is possessive too.

  4. "The Stalker and the Possessive types are the ones that are capable of killing their love interest" weeeeell, I don't think so. In my opinion, every type of Yanderes is able of doing it, except the overprotective one. But still, these categories are really great!

    1. Hm I think that the possessive type is especially the type who is able to kill the mc cause he tends to hurt her/is fine with that if it means she won't leave him. Even the most possessive types fall under the "if i can't have her.." or "lets die together" category.

    2. Thanks and no I feel that not all are capable of killing their love interest. If they do then they are the stalker or possessive type along with another type.

  5. Do you think you could give me some names of anime/manga with the yandere kidnapping the Main Character? That would be amazing and very helpful!

  7. Hey! Just something that I have noticed is that you have "obsessive" yandere in this list, but it's not a tag in the sidebar of your blog!
    Just something you might want to fix when you have time. ^^"
