As we all know, the Tsundere archetype is a character (usually female) who acts rough but is a softie deep down. However, there are two known variations to it.

The Classic variation is (naturally) the original prototypical version and is quite different from how many know it now. The Classic variation generally switch between tsun and dere depending greatly on the situation but may show a clear progression towards the latter. They also aren't necessarily involved with a love interest and it was popularized by Lum.

The Modern variation is by far the more well-known and widely-used variation of the archetype. Much like the classic variation they may switch between tsun and dere depending on the situation but the object of their affection is one they are openly harsh which hides their true feelings. There are also a bunch of tropes associated with it (such as accident perversion, lolicon, etc.)

Classic Examples

Lum (Urusei Yatsura)
Misty (Pokemon)
Bulma, Chi-Chi, and Vegeta (Dragon Ball)
Keiko Yukimura (Yu Yu Hakusho)
Nami (One Piece)

Modern Examples

Akane Tendo (Ranma 1/2)
Asuka Soryu Langley (Neon Genesis Evangelion)
Taiga (Toradora)
Rin Tohsaka (Fate/Stay night)
Naru Narusegawa (Love Hina)
Louise de La Vallière (The Familiar of Zero)

Most modern tsunderes make me cringe. I'll admit classic ones could be just as guilty, but their abuse of other characters is painful rather than funny, and occurs much more frequently.

I hate both types. Even in real life.

My feeling aren't as strong to say that they both suck, but I'm not a total fan of the tsundere archetype
