Anime girl character archetypes

It's actually to help me with something I'm working on. I just need people's input on all the popular female character archetypes in anime, manga, and games.

I know the following:


Tsundere
Yandere
Su-Cool - opposite of tsundere; acts emotionless but very emotional inside
Oneesama
Ojousama
Tomboy
Dojikko - Clumsy girl type
Boy-crazy type
Student Council President
Megane/bookworm
Loli that acts like a child
Osanajimi - The gentle, bento-making, housekeeping type
Quiet mysterious type



Anyone add more?

Most of these aren't really "anime girl archetypes"

Oneesama Here's one.
Ojousama Here's another.
Tomboy And another.
Dojikko - Clumsy girl type Personality/Moe trait.
Boy-crazy type Eh, maybe "obsessive girl"?
Student Council President I guess.
Megane/bookworm Yeah.
Loli that acts like a child I guess.
Osanajimi - The gentle, bento-making, housekeeping type Methinks you mean "childhood friend".
Quiet mysterious type Personality/moe trait.
Yeah, most of these are just fragments of personality that can't really form an archetype.

Of course, if you don't litterally mean "archetype" but maybe... "character types" or something, these would all fit, except that lolis acting like lolis could be split into several other character types.

EDIT: What I meant by archetypes as opposed to personality traits is something like the "Tall, dark bishoujo", who's the attractive bishoujo who has some sort of presence that usually attracts admirers (of both genders), generally pretty closed off, is often serious, etc.
