In order to keep the original definition intact, another term has arisen to describe girls who exhibit yandere traits but do not fit the true definition of what a yanderekko entails. This term, known as yangire (ヤンギレ), refers to characters who snap suddenly out of jealousy, irritation or something similar. Yangire is a combination of the two words yanderu (病んでる), meaning to be sick, and kire or gire (切れ), meaning to cut, slice, or "to snap". This behavior is different from that of a yandere character in regard to the motivation that sparked the change in the character. The yanderekko is motivated through her love for the male protagonist, while a yangire character is motivated through other characters and will not be connected with emotions of love or attraction.
Rena Ryugu from Higurashi No Naku Koro ni is a well known yangire.

Like a Yandere, except they don't have emotional attachment. They just enjoy killing and violence.
Roon from Azur Lane is a typical Yangire.

Apparently, it's a yandere without 'dere-dere' part. I.e. yangire went crazy even without love - for exemple, 'cause of some tragic events in the past
Russia (Ivan Braginsky) in Axis Powers Hetalia is typical yangire.

A character that is a reverse of a Yandere character. He/She has nothing to do with someone or something, he/she just loves violence so much.
Huan Ji of Kingdom anime and manga described as a Yangire for his too cruel attitude and cold treatment of enemies. And totally nuts for massacring villages just to unnerve his enemies. He wanted victory at all costs, no matter how dirty the procedure is.

A type of yandere but too far. As a yangire are a kind person behind that she's a crazier person she really wants to kill her own senpai to death.
A girl name "Aiko Li" and she's yangire that she wants to kill the senpai to pull out his heart to feel comfortable.
