    Audrey Belrose from Huniepop. She's great if you like drug addicts and self-proclaimed "megabitches" with no real redeeming qualities other than sheer brutal honesty and knowing where to find a good time. I was originally drawn to her because the idea of actually pursuing such a girl in a dating sim was hilarious to me but I ended up liking her for real, because an actual bitch who is totally honest that she has no interest in you and is just using you is such a refreshing change from the irritating tsundere archetype that has pervaded everything.

    Oh look at that, my votes that were coincidentally the exact same as yours ended up getting Shiroe tied for best male character and winning Ebb and Flow best song despite me not remembering what it sounds like.

    BTW, I've been following your conversation with Outfox. I suppose my impression of the tsunderes my brother likes was heavily skewed by two characters I found rather harsh and violent, namely Hitagi and a character from the VN Ever 17 called Tsugumi. Then again, I think he likes the Rie Kugimiya style of tsunderes a lot more than I do so maybe he is a masochist.

    That's more or less why I think of Hitagi as a tsundere as well.

    Guessing the one you don't know is Zakuro, she's kind of like a cross between Rin and Horo but with a bit more "fire" in her personality. There's a method to her madness too, she's prejudice against the guy she's paired with from the start because he's human, and in her view humans are too quick to abandon tradition in favour of western ways.

    (Horo should maybe be on that list too, albeit as a mild example. Also, Tsugumi Komachi from Ever 17 but I wanted to stick to anime examples)

    I would agree that my very favourite tsunderes tend not to be the hotheaded type. But if we look at tsundere I like more broadly, there's actually a lot of Taiga type characters I like. I find the awkwardness and raw emotion these characters display makes me sympathetic to them - if the author doesn't make them annoy me first.

    Some notes on these types:
    Taiga herself: The series plays her very sympathetically on the whole, and I also feel like Toradora understood how far to take its character gags better than many shows. The way she's initially played up as a pint sized terror lasts about as long as its welcome.
    Claire Rouge (Blade Dance): I'm not about to argue Blade Dance is a great show, but I feel like it did a better job than most at connecting some of Claire's early lashing-out to specific moments of vulnerability, which made her more sympathetic than most.
    Ling (Infinite Stratos): This one is tricky to pinpoint, but I think the reason why Ling is one of my favourite IS characters is she comes across as a nice girl who happens to be fairly blunt and easily irritated. It makes her feel more natural to me than, say, Cecilia or Laura. When I think about it, Hyouka's Mayaka has a similar appeal.
    Charlotte (Unbreakable Machine Doll): I'm not generally fond of the "rich girl" subtype of tsundere - which I tend to find stiff rather than natural - but Charlotte is an exception. I think there's two reasons for that. One, she has a grudging respect for the main character. Second, those conversations with Sigmund, who gave the writer a lot of free reign to lampshade her personality without it feeling as unnatural as it does in many shows.

    Interesting observation on SAO and Yuuki Yuuna. I didn't notice that one as I'm that into SAO, but yeah it does seem like an influence in the character design.

    A PMMM character to cross with Nozomi? You're probably expecting me to say Mami but I think the characters are actually too similar to be effective and I think I'd prefer to cross Mami and Eli. So I'm going to say Kyoko. Retain Kyoko's lone wolf traits and cockiness, but make her mischievous and a bit hedonistic in place of Kyoko's seriousness and austerity.

    I agree with Yuuki combining Madoka and Sayaka's traits. Homura and Hitomi... I agree that she exhibits traits of both but I'm not necessarily sure that Hitomi is the actual inspiration for Togo's gentler side.

    Here's how I see it after integrating your thoughts on Yuuki and further exploring some of my own ideas:
    Spoiler for Yuuki Yuuna wa Yuusha de Aru:


    What I'm less sure on is how many of these similarities arise from conscious attempts to mimic Madoka and how many are cases of less conscious inspiration. The relatively natural feel to the story suggests to me that at least some of it is the latter.

    Since Darth is doing it, so will I. In no particular order:
    Azusa (K-On)
    Zakuro (Otome Youkai Zakuro)
    Taiga (Toradora)
    Kuroneko (OreImo)
    Ririchiyo (Inu x Boku SS)
    Hitagi (Bakemonogatari - I think her inclusion in the list is warranted whether or not she 100% meets a given definition)

    Whereas from Darth's list only Mai and movie version Sheryl would get my vote for favourite from their respective shows.

    BTW, given that I'm a Kuroneko fan when it comes to OreImo, would it suprise you to know that Eriri is my favourite in Saenai Heroine?

    Edit:
    Random Yuuki Yuuna related comment... I'm thinking YY's cast is actually a little more Madoka inspired than I originally gathered:
    Homura + Sayaka = Togo
    Madoka = Yuuki + Itsuki
    So merge two characters and split one. The other three have fairly obvious counterparts.
