    Default Tsundere Paladin

    I'm trying to think how a Tsundere Paladin would...be. Thoughts, Playground?

    That's not the only dimension or any kind of straightjacket, just the underlying premise.

    I think it'd be really fresh about 15 years ago.



    ...but really, it'd play out like any other character of the archetype would just with paladin powers. Not sure if there is anything particular the paladin that demands an incredible break for formula.

    Is this paladin tsundere to a specific person, or just to the world in general?

    Because honestly, if he's just tsundere to the world, he'd be a noir detective. Grim, cynical, makes big speeches about how the world is rotten to the core and what are you gonna do, but whenever someone's in trouble and the chips are down, there he is in the thick of things, usually grousing that they just keeping dragging him back in.

    This world is rotten and not worth saving. If people decide to kill each other its nothing to me.

    Its not like I'm protecting you because you're weak and I've sworn a vow or anything.

    I'm just killing you because I woke up this morning and found you in the way, don't think I even noticed your nefarious plan.

    I was going to kill everyone here, but I'm bored after killing all the bandits. You helpless peasants better be on your way before I change my mind.

    Don't think I'm seething with righteous anger because I actually listened to your evil monologue, I'm merely annoyed by your ugly face.

    Don't mind me, I had to touch you to check if someone so stupid could have a pulse and just happened to heal you as well.

    I care as little about you zombies as a cleric of two levels lower.

    I thought for a second I had detected something evil, but now I see it was only a joke villain like you.

    If only you were merely half as stupid, there might be something worth protecting after all.

    I got bored of carrying this gold and this just happened to be a convenient place to get rid of it. Don't think this is first ed and I'm only allowed to keep 90%.

    Could we... talk about justice again sometime?

    Note to self: Next time I play a paladin, they will be a yandere in some way or another. Just for the sheer hilarity value. Bonus points if I can pull it off as a classic Lawful Good paladin. This is the challenge I am issuing to myself!

    An abridged quote from episode 4 of Shimoneta, a beautiful piece of satirical anime. The character I'm quoting, Anna, is essentially a yandere paladin. However, I am obliged to say...

    The anime has a very graphic depiction of rape in episode 4.

    Wait, did Red Fel just-

    Wait, he's talking about the general non-cliche Dere guide, not a Dere Paladin guide?

    Darn, I thought he was going to make a Paladin-related guide. Still heavily flawed, of course, but progress!

    Instead you're just writing about less-cliche applications for tropes about emotionally extreme/volatile characters. Usually teenagers! As if you want that sort of character to propagate even further across the mainstream! Does your evil know no limits!?
