A yandere is a character archetype describing a fictional character whose behavior is both highly affectionate and violently possessive toward a love interest.[1][2][3]

"The term is a portmanteau of the words yanderu (病んでる), meaning (mentally or emotionally) ill, and deredere (でれでれ, "lovey dovey"), meaning to show strong romantic affection."[1]
