The Sadodere (さどデレ) type refers to a character who loves to toy with their love interest’s emotions. They take pleasure in manipulating people’s feelings. An example of this character is Kurumi Tokisaki from the anime show, Date A Live.

This word is a compound of Sado (さど), taken from sadomasochistic, and Deredere (デレデレ) which means lovey dovey.
