Taiga Aisaka is the main female protagonist and the titular "Tiger" of Yuyuko Takemiya's light novel Toradora! (also known as TIGER x DRAGON! in China) and its anime adaptation by J.C. Staff.

Taiga hails from a distinguished anime archetype known as "Shana Clones", among which of their characteristics include thigh-highs, long hair, short statures, flat chest, and most of all, being a tsundere archetype, which is more often than not, voiced by the queen of tsunderes herself, Rie Kugimiya.

The Palmtop Tiger is one of only few girls to win two or more major tournaments, and is the second girl to win both Anime Saimoe Tournament and Korea Best Moe Tournament in the same year (2009, after Suiseiseki did it in 2006).

Unlike other Shana clones, Taiga is a consistently strong competitor despite NOT receiving a new anime adaptation for many years. She even managed to make deep runs in the early years of ISML and Best Girl Contest, garnering fourth place in the former and quarter-finals in the latter. Today, she is slowly getting replaced by a new generation of more powerful girls, but still shows signs of life every now and then, pulling off upsets as long as she still competes.
