Please note that Vocaloids have no official personality and vary in every song.

The Japanese Vocaloids pt1

Note: All Japanese names are in Japanese order (surname-given name), as this is their formal product name arrangement. For consistency, the names of the providers of the voice banks are in the same format.

AH-Soft

SF-A2 miki[1]

File:Miki 2151.jpg

The eighth Japanese Vocaloid and the first[2] Vocaloid released by AH-Software (along with the first in their "Vocal Artist" series), Miki was also the first Vocaloid to have a demo CD included with her release (which made many fans think her announcement might be a Troll). She is voiced by Furukawa Miki of Supercar.

Fanon portrays her as rather alien, both in personality and in species (since her android markings are very distinctive in contrast to those of the Ridiculously-Human Robots seen in the others).


Kaai Yuki

File:Yuki 2702.jpg

Yuki is notable for being the first "child voice" (she's an elementary student) Vocaloid released. She is distributed by AH-Software and is the ninth (or tenth) Japanese Vocaloid.

Fanon portrays her as either an innocent and naïve child, or...quite adventurous and bold.


Hiyama Kiyoteru

File:Kiyoteru 2382.jpg

Released by AH-Software (but not as a part of the "Vocal Artist" series) and the ninth (or tenth) Japanese Vocaloid, Kiyoteru is explicitly stated to be a math teacher.

On weekends, he's the vocalist of a rock band named Ice Mountain with the stage name "Ice Mountain Teru".

Fanon portrays him as a strict, Straight Man teacher... although he might have hidden depths...

Thanks to an official artbook released by AH Software (details in the Ice Mountain link), he has more official canon info than the other vocaloids.


Nekomura Iroha

File:Irohaavatar-2 3698.jpg

Released by AH-Software (not in the Vocal Artist series) and the fourteenth Japanese one, she was created in conjunction with Sanrio for their Together with Hello Kitty! video game project. Thus, she was an established character before the Vocaloidification (her character was created by illustrator okama for the video game project.

Okama defines her as a "kittyler", or Hello Kitty Fan Girl. Thus, the fandom follows up on this.


  • Animal Motifs: Cats.
  • Arm Cannon: Her Dynamic-Phonon Busters, gigantic speakers that attach to her arms. Only spewing sounds, but cannons nonetheless.
  • Fan Girl
  • Meaningful Name: "Iroha" is the Japanese equivalent of "ABC".
  • Ridiculously-Human Robots: Downplayed - She has speakers for her hands. Although fans also tend to portray her with normal hands.
  • Rose-Haired Girl
  • Short Hair with Tail
  • Tomboy: Due to her deep voice, she is portrayed by this.
    • Some producers are able to subvert this stereotype either by raising her voice (with good tuning) like in Banton Summer Sky, or by making her sing opera like this amazing rendition of Ave Maria (potentially giving the classic style Vocaloids like Prima and Miriam a run for their money).
  • Vocal Dissonance: Hotly contested (as some believe it doesn't fit her design while others believe it's just tomboyish).

Yuzuki Yukari

File:Yukari 9878.png

AH Software's first Vocaloid 3, Yukari was made in a collaboration with multiple Vocaloid song producers. Released on December 22nd, she has a smooth sounding deep voice. She was also released with the Voiceroid software, where users could have her speak normally.


Bplats

VY1

File:Ofclboxart bplt VY1-img1 6620.jpg

Codenamed "Mizki" (as a reference to hanamizuki, a type of flower), VY1's announcement and demo files were made in the most mysterious way possible. Eventually it was revealed that it was developed by bplats and was eventually distributed by Yamaha themselves as the twelfth Japanese Vocaloid.

Unlike the other Vocaloids, VY1 has no gender or personality, as it is intended to be used as a serious musical product. It is however described as "feminine".

Despite being The Faceless, VY1 still crops up in Fanon. Interpretations vary wildly, but the majority are some variation on a teenage girl in a floral kimono. The winning design for the 2011 VocaFes contest follows that.


VY2

File:Ofclboxart bplt VY2-img1 9076.jpg

Like VY1, it was developed by bplats and was eventually distributed by Yamaha. It is the 16th Japanese Vocaloid. It is also given a codename of "Yuma."

Also like VY1, VY2 has no gender or personality, as it is intended to be used as a serious musical product. It is however described as "masculine".

Despite being The Faceless, VY2 also crops up in Fanon. Interpretations vary wildly, but the majority are of a young man in traditional Japanese attire, usually as a warrior of any kind. Although, the winning design for VY2 in 2011 VocaFes contest strives far away from said description.


Crypton

Meiko

File:Meiko cropped 2223.jpg

Meiko is the first Japanese Vocaloid to be created, and was released for the original Vocaloid engine. She was released by Crypton Future Media and voiced by Haigou Meiko.

Fanon portrays her as enjoying sake and often getting drunk. She likes beating up on Kaito.


Kaito

File:Kaito cropped 9151.jpg

The second Japanese Vocaloid, also released for the initial engine. He is distributed by Crypton Future Media and voiced by Fuuga Naoto.

Kaito is depicted in Fanon as a silly, happy-go-lucky kind of guy who enjoys eating ice cream; he is constantly attacked by Meiko, the first female Japanese Vocaloid.


Hatsune Miku

File:Miku 6695.jpg

The second[4] Vocaloid for the Vocaloid2 engine, though the first from Japan, and Japan's third in total. She is voiced by Fujita Saki. Miku was the one who attracted popularity for the Vocaloid engine through some of her Memetic Mutation videos; before then, Vocaloid was nothing more than an obscure music virtual instrument. She is the first in Crypton's Character Vocal series, and thus has a code-name of CV01.

A separate release by Crypton, "Miku Append", features six new voice banks recorded by Fujita Saki, "soft," "solid," "dark," "light," "sweet," and "vivid," designed to capture different moods. The original Miku is required to be installed in order to install the Append. Also, an English bank is currently in development.

In Fanon she is portrayed as a kindly, cheerful girl, mostly to cater to the Otaku fandom as an "ideal girl". She has a bright, generally-used-for-high-pitch voice, which also has a very large song demographic.


Badass: There are two videos that fit the description of showing her awesomeness... among other things.

  • Character Celebrity Endorsement: She recently starred in Toyota's latest Corolla commercials (for the USA), as a result of Toyota being the main sponsor of her upcoming live concert at Anime Expo 2011 in Los Angeles.
  • Character Number: 39 (mi-ku). Her concert is 39's Giving Day (March 9), and her Facebook page needed 39,390 likes for her to get an English bank.
    • Entertainingly, '3-9' can also be read as 'san-kyu', or 'thank you'.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: When she's not portrayed as a Mary Sue. For example...
  • Detached Sleeves
  • Expressive Hair: In some fanart, at least.
  • Girlish Pigtails: All the way to the ground!
  • Green Is Blue: The color of her hair is all over the place because of this trope.
  • Hey, It's That Voice!: Her voice samples come from Fujita Saki
  • Hotter and Sexier: Her Append boxart has been accused of being oversexualized.
  • Jack of All Trades: As of her Append upgrade; her six extra voicebanks theoretically should give her the proper tonal qualities to produce most kinds of music now. Append was created in response to user complaints that Miku's voice was too cute and cheery for some of the songs people wanted to make with her.
  • Leotard of Power: Her Append design is made of this. Would've been taken more literally if she had a Power voicebank.
  • Mascot: Crypton uses her a lot to promote themselves.
  • Meaningful Name: 'Hatsune' means 'first sound'; Miku was the first Japanese Vocaloid2 character to be produced.
  • Panty Shot: Fandom universally has given her striped green panties.
  • Plucky Girl: In Fanon.
  • Sleepyhead / Lazy Bum: In a good number of her more humorous songs she talks about how she can't stay awake or complains about working (Triple Baka, Take It Easy and World is Mine come to mind).
    • She also sings Sloth's song in Mothy's Seven Deadly Sins series.
  • Smark: BE MIKU got her labeled as one.
  • Spotlight-Stealing Squad: She's one of the most popular out of all the Vocaloids, to the point that some people don't realize other Vocaloids exist.
    • Many of the others have similar levels of popularity...within the fandom. Non-fans usually only know about Miku. Crypton's mascotization of Miku doesn't help; they have, for example, 40 different collectible Vocaloid phone charms, 29 of which are Mikus. Vocaloid concerts also tend to be about 3/4ths Miku and 1/4th everyone else.
  • Stringy Haired Ghost Girl: In Masa's Onibi Series, she doesn't look like your typical one, but she is, through and through. She died a tragic death, is in love with a cannibal, and kills people.
  • The Cameo: According to this trailer, she'll make an appearance in The iDOLM@STER 2 for the PlayStation 3.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: Usually portrayed as the girly girl to Rin's tomboy.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Negi/Leek. It came from her cover of the Ievan Polka, in which she discredited the Leekspin meme from Orihime and made it her own. Along with the leeks she also has a fondness for bacon wrapped hotdogs according to the Toyota ads.
  • Updated Rerelease: Miku Append, where she received an update that consisted of six new voicebanks: Soft, Sweet, Dark, Vivid, Solid, and Light. All of which reflect her moods and gives her more vocal range.
  • Yandere: Most notably in the song ACUTE, but if she's in a scenario where she loves KAITO and she gets rejected in favor of someone else, there will be pain.
  • You Gotta Have Turquoise Hair: However, it may alternate between different shades of green and blue.
  • Zettai Ryouiki: wearing Thigh-High Boots. Rank A; can qualify for Rank S (with Tsundere added) depending on depictions.

Kagamine Rin / Kagamine Len

File:Len rin 7588.jpg

Formally distributed as a package together (officially they are Kagamine Rin/Len), Rin and Len make up the second Japanese Vocaloid to be released for the Vocaloid2 engine and the fourth overall. They are distributed by Crypton Future Media and voiced by Shimoda Asami. They are the second in the Character Vocal series and are thus codenamed CV02.

They later received an "ACT2" update voice package with an entirely new set of voices, although whether they're better are up to you. At the time, installing ACT2 required the original Rin/Len installation, but now only the ACT2 is currently being sold and the original is unavailable. In the same vein as Miku, they received an Append--Power, Warm, and Sweet for Rin; Power, Cold, and Serious for Len.

In Fanon, Rin is usually portrayed as a somewhat cruel Genki Girl and Len as a cute boy.

Debating on whether they are mirror images or twins will cause Internet Backdraft, as Crypton once described them as opposite sides of a mirror ("kagami" meaning "mirror"), but later changed it back to twins. Eventually they just took back both definitions and left it hanging to anyone's interpretation.


Megurine Luka

File:Luka 8918.jpg

Luka is the sixth Japanese Vocaloid and released by Crypton Future Media. Notable in that 1) she's actually given a Canon personality as "cool, somewhat mysterious", 2) she has both a Japanese and heavily accented English voicebank and 3) her given "age", 20, is significantly older than that of Miku's (16) and Rin/Len's (14). She is voiced by Asakawa Yuu.

As the third in Crypton's "Character Vocal" series, she is codenamed CV03.

Fanon portrays her just as her official profile says: The Stoic. Although...NotSoStoic tends to creep in.


Internet Co. Ltd.

Kamui Gakupo /Gackpoid[7]

File:Gackpoid 1532.jpg

The fifth Japanese Vocaloid and the first to be distributed by Internet Co., Ltd. rather than Crypton. His outfit is based on that of a samurai. He was designed by Kentaro Miura (the creator of Berserk) and is voiced by Gackt. Yes, that Gackt.

Fanon portrays him as somewhat goofy.


Gumi /Megpoid[8]

File:Gumi 1093.jpg

The seventh Japanese Vocaloid and released by Internet Co., Ltd., Gumi had a design heavily based off Ranka Lee due to the fact that her voicer, Megumi Nakajima, was Ranka's seiyuu.

Notably, she is given a Fanon personality more grounded in normality, since while she is a Plucky Girl, she doesn't quite reach into Genki Girl.

In the vein of Crypton Vocaloids' Appends, she also gets a voicebank update to be released in Vocaloid3 engine, which was named "Megpoid Extend", but is now officially "Vocaloid3 Megpoid" a notable acknowledge to her product name.


Lily

File:C20090721 move 02 cs1w1 512x640 9763.jpg

Lily is the eleventh Japanese Vocaloid and is distributed by Internet Co., Ltd. (Note that she was not actually done by Internet; she was made by Avex Co.) Lily's design was actually utilized pre-Vocaloidification as an anime image for Matsuda Yuri, vocalist of band m.o.v.e., who provided her voice bank. Coincidentally, said design happened to be by KEI, designer of the Crypton Character Vocal Series Vocaloids.

Fanon portrays her as a punk girl with an "outgoing" personality.

She was advertised with an animated movie, "Schwarzgazer", depicting her and her companion "Mosh" as secretly fighting a mysterious dark "virus" force that they must combat with their music. Failure to produce music results in weakness, which almost deletes Lily and Mosh before a nearby music producer, Yakuto, saves them by supplying them with music. So does that make Lily a sort of undercover superhero?


Ryuto/Gachapoid[10]

File:GachapoidHuman-2 7993.jpg
File:Gachapin 5882.jpg

Based off the Japanese franchise character Gachapin, Gachapoid is distributed by Internet Co. Ltd. as the thirteenth Japanese Vocaloid. He is designed to appeal to young producers.


CUL

File:Cul front coat 5304.jpg

Another upcoming Vocaloid from Vocaloid 3 engine, she was an avatar of VY1 (see its section above). As the Mascot of VOCALO Revolution, she was designed to help promote the growing Vocaloid culture, aiming to rise awareness and the acceptance of this culture. That's before Internet Co. Ltd, on June 8, 2011, adopted her design to become a new Vocaloid.

She was released in 21th December 2011, along with Oliver and Yukari. She's voiced by Eri Kitamura.


Galaco

File:Galaco 7329.png

Galaco is a limited voicebank offered exclusively in the Vocaloid Shop competition. She was first introduced in the PV of galaxias! of the band of the same name, and voiced by Kou Shibasaki. So far, a demo has been released.


Yamaha

Hibiki Lui / Ring Suzune

File:Vfs vocaloid 5150.jpg

01R Ring Suzune and 01L Lui Hibiki were announced the ending of May 2011. They are the result of a contest called "Everyone's Vocaloid project", which was sponsored by Yamaha. The contest called for fans to create an original Vocaloid characters for the upcoming Vocaloid3 engine (as it was later revealed).

Upon presenting the winning characters, they went through an unexpected makeover. Upon seeing how drastically different the official designs were to the original artist renders, the fandom reaction was a mix of disappointment and occasional approvals.

The original names of the characters were Suzunone Ringu and Lui.

They're now managed by Vocanext.


Mew

File:274px-Mewvocaloid 3791.jpg

A Vocaloid made by Yamaha, she is so far one of the 2 starter vocals offered for the Vocaloid 3 software, other than VY1 above. Her voice provider is Miu Sakamoto. The cat depicted in her artwork is based off of Miu's own cat, Sabami.

Her full design is here; the design is made by a Japanese artist "Otaniryuji".



The Japanese Vocaloids pt2

Note: All Japanese names are in Japanese order (surname-given name), as this is their formal product name arrangement. For consistency, the names of the providers of the voice banks are in the same format.

Exit Tunes

Mayu

File:Mayu 2869.png

The first Vocaloid devloped by Exit Tunes, Mayu is a Yandere influenced Vocaloid. Not much else is known about her at this time.



Ki/oon

Utatane Piko

File:Utatanepiko 6493.jpg

Released by Ki/oon, a subsidary of Sony (yes, that Sony), as the fifteenth Japanese Vocaloid and the first one by Sony. The voicebank was recorded by the Nico Nico Douga singer Piko, hence the name - this makes Piko somewhat of a Promoted Fanboy. The design is based on an electric guitar (complete with a power cord).

The voice data is male but has a feminine voice; however, gender factors can easily set to make it more masculine.



Lawson

Akikoroid-chan

File:Much Smaller 9592.png

Yet another new Vocaloid, she is the mascot of Lawson, Inc. Unlike other vocaloids, she is not intended for public sale, and is only used for private commercial purposes by Lawson.


MoeJapan

Tone Rion

File:Tone Rion 119.jpg

A Vocaloid for the third engine. Her brief backstory states that she is 16 years old and was born in 2095, she is good at singing and dancing. Rion preforms on the "Dear Stage" (ディアステージ) located in future Akihabara set 100 years from the current. She has her own website and had eight demo songs (example here) before her release on 16 December 2011. She's designed by a famous character designer Akio Watanabe.


Studio DEEN

Aoki Lapis

File:Aoki 620.jpg

Another vocaloid using the Vocaloid 3 engine, released on April 6, 2012. Her style of music is known as "lifestyle", and that she will be targeted towards casual Vocaloid users. The project leaders, comprising of the Surfer's Paradise search engine, the anime studio Studio Deen, and Nico Nico Douga, sent out a call for NicoNico users to "audition" by submitting a song they believed would suit Lapis, with a chance to become her actual voice. The role of her seiyuu was eventually awarded to an Utatte-mita singer[11] named Eguchi Nako.

She has at least two demos so far, which can be viewed here and here. Since her commercial release she's had an explosion of cover songs, most of them quite well made.


1st Place

IA

File:Ia 2699.png

The first Vocaloid produced by 1st Place, IA is voiced by singer Lia. She is described on her official site as IA -ARIA ON THE PLANETES- and was released on January 27th, 2012. Her demo song was a cover of Lia's Tori no Uta.




The English Vocaloids

PowerFX

Sweet Ann

File:Sweet ann 8006.jpg

The fourth English Vocaloid, the first Vocaloid released by PowerFX, and the first Vocaloid released for the Vocaloid2 engine[12], Sweet Ann is voiced by an Australian singer under the stage name of "Jody".

Fanon portrays her as an elegant woman. She is often made fun of for the stitches on her neck (PowerFX is fond of making "monster" Vocaloids) and the fact that the lighting on her boxart makes her look like she got a bad fake tan.


Big Al

File:Big al 6163.png

Since Big-Al was announced years before his actual release due to complications with recording the voice bank, for a while he was the Duke Nukem Forever of the Vocaloid community. However, he was eventually released with a voice bank provided by PowerFX staff Frank Sanderson and a more Animesque design (his original artwork, done in the style of Sweet Ann's, was often regarded as Nightmare Fuel) as the seventh English Vocaloid.

Fanon portrays him as a goofy Adult Child.


  • Adult Child: Let's see. Two of his songs focus on childhood, one of them is an acid trip that could be easily shrugged off as a chid playing pretend, and several are about things that he has a childlike obsession towards. It seems people like this.
  • Anime Hair: Particularly his third boxart design (E-capsule), which is of the Spiky Hair variety.
  • Badass Longcoat: In his Taiwanese designs.
  • Everything's Better with Penguins: A minor meme at most, but he seems to have a good relationship with antarctic animals.
  • Megane: E-capsule Big Al sports a pair of white glasses.
  • Rated "M" for Manly: His original voice is ridiculously deep and rumbly. The fandom had been aching for a deep-voiced male vocaloid for ages, so they latched this trope onto him and never let it go.
    • His final voice isn't quite as deep, but is still much deeper than the other male vocaloids.
    • Hell, just listen to THIS! Manly to the MAX!
  • Sinister Scythe: E-capsule Big Al has one.

VocaTone

Oliver

File:Vocaloid3 oliver offical art by lawlietlk-d4fy8od 3682.jpg

Announced on October 15, 2011. Oliver is the name of the PowerFX's new Vocaloid3, made in collaboration with the new American Vocaloid company VocaTone, which notably consists of passionate Vocaloid fans.

Early fan supporters couldn't be deterred from making art based on him, even before any details of his design were revealed. VocaTone did release a silhouette of him ahead of time, which helped considerably.

On November 12, 2011, three demos and his official artwork were released. Additional demos continued to appear until Oliver made his actual debut on December 21, 2011.


Zero-G

Leon

File:Vocaloid Leon 4218.jpg

The first Vocaloid (alongside Lola) - ever - and the first male English Vocaloid. He was released by Zero-G and runs under the original Vocaloid engine.

Fanon portrays him as a Butt Monkey.


Lola

File:Vocaloid Lola box 2303.jpg

Released at the same time and by the same company as Leon, Lola is the first female Vocaloid. She also runs under the initial Vocaloid engine.

She has the unfortunate distinction of having an extremely low voice, almost masculine. Fanon portrays her as a Genki Girl.


  • But Not Too Black: Some of her best songs feature a black woman, yet even more of them go for an identical-twin look with Leon's blond persona, and still others portray her as a pale woman with black hair. No one can decide which is 'canon'.
  • Hatedom: The Western average singing pitch is much deeper than the Japanese. Lola's voice, while still feminine, is deeper than Leon's. She can't extend out of her main techno skill without being assaulted by walls of negative comments.
    • Even for Westerners, her voice is low...Leon and Lola's Japanese cover of "magnet" has the potential to leave the listener in confusion over which one's supposed to be the female. Their English cover of magnet luckily avoids this.
  • She Cleans Up Nicely: Even if she does have a very deep voice, an astonishing number of gems show up if you look for them.

Miriam

File:Miriam 7904.jpg

The third English Vocaloid and the first to reveal the provider of the voice bank. She is distributed by Zero-G, is voiced by Miriam Stockley, and is the last English Vocaloid to be released under the first engine.

Fanon portrays her as The Stoic or as a Shrinking Violet.


Prima

File:Prima 831.jpg

The first Vocaloid2-engine Vocaloid by Zero-G and the fifth English Vocaloid, Prima is built almost entirely for opera songs. Thus, she sings with deep vowels and rolls her consonants.

Fanon portrays her as a classy, rich woman, although software pirates tend to think of her as a Yandere since she sometimes kills illegal versions of the software.


  • Classically-Trained Extra: One interpretation, seeing as she was designed to sing opera and is usually used to sing...not Opera.
  • Eerie Pale-Skinned Brunette: Based upon her photo boxart.
    • Fans also tend to take that image and personify Prima as such.
  • Idiot Hair: E-capsule Prima has a stray curl on the side of her head.
  • Meaningful Name - From "prima donna," the lady in an opera company who generally got the leading roles.
  • Shrinking Violet: E-capsule Prima shyly glances sideways, while her chibi form shows her standing pigeon-toed, tight lipped and blushing.
  • Tomboyish Sidetails: E-capsule Prima with long payot and what appears to be a Hime Cut.
  • Tall, Dark and Bishoujo: Almost always depicted as such.
    • Either that or small and petite.
  • Unusual Ears: E-capsule Prima sports a pair of headphones with pointing speaker ears. No one is quite sure if they are Fox ears, Cat ears or Wolf ears. Though the most popular assumption is fox.
  • Vocal Dissonance: Much like the popular teenager design spawned from the Japanese fandom, E-capsule Prima was designed to appear as a young female (18 in fact). In the Western fandom such portrayals are criticized as some believe it doesn't fit her voice.
  • Yandere: She's portrayed as one by the Western fandom, mainly those who tried to pirate her and the software with a wrong cracking code, making it unusable; they interpreted it as Prima being yandere and taking everybody with her.

Sonika

File:Sonika 4632.jpg

The sixth English Vocaloid, Sonika is essentially Zero-G's attempt at imitating the Japanese Vocaloids by invoking Animesque. Thus, Sonika was advertised with height/age/weight measurements along with katakana on her arm, and was advertised as being able to "sing any language" (since she's not as restricted to phonetics as other voice banks), and is essentially Zero-G's mascot, even with a full-blown personality and Twitter profile. This... backfired. She was criticized for having terrible pronunciation and being a badly-attempted sleight at marketing. Eventually, people warmed up, but she'll Never Live It Down.

She has two boxarts, the first being a CGI render and the second being done by an artist on Deviant ART.

As such, in Fanon, she is portrayed as a weeaboo, with a cheerful personality.


Tonio

File:Vocaloid Tonio 907.jpg

Tonio was released by Zero-G as the eighth English Vocaloid; while his initial release was delayed and people thought it would go to Big-Al status, Tonio was eventually released after a few months. He is meant to be an opera singer as a partner to Prima.

Fanon portrays him like Prima: classy and rich.


Vocaloids in more languages

SBS Artech

SeeU

File:Seeu 987.jpg

The first Korean Vocaloid, released by SBS Artech. Character design by manhwa artist Kkuem. Voiced by real-life Korean Idol Singer Kim (also known as Kim Tahi, Dahi, Dahee).

A leaked early demo can be found here, which was praised for its humanlike realism. It should be noted, though, that Kim Tahi also sings in the background for said demo. Her first official demo, 'RUN', was released 22 September 2011; and was brought her back to the forefront in "Never Let You Go" .


Voctro Labs

Bruno and Clara

File:To tvtropes 4495.jpg

The first pair of Spanish Vocaloids on the Vocaloid3 engine. The old character design by Raimon Benach was used in their first visual demo video "Juntos Tú y Yo". The current design is by artist "Rumple".

  • Starfish Language: Tianyi knows nothing about human language, so she can only sing to express her feelings.
  • Tall, Dark and Bishoujo: Qingxian, her official profile states that she is quite popular; cool, stable, and good-looking. She's so mysterious that some people fear her.
  • The Empath: Tianyi can feel and read the hidden songs in a human mind. She can also turn the repeating thoughts of a person, into a song.
  • The Fashionista: Qingxian, her outfits are described as fashionable.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: Ling and Tianyi
  • Tomboyish Sidetails: Ling
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Yayin's (presently Tianyi) favorite food is haw apple, and Tanghulu made by haw apple.
  • Yamato Nadeshiko: Qingxian, her behavior is regarded as being a 'traditional lady'. She likes ancient books, poems, understand Tao, and likes traditional Chinese instruments. She is also generous and kind towards others.
  • Zettai Ryouiki: Ling and Tianyi... at least with one leg each.

Ascended Fan Derivatives

Fanmade derivatives of existing Vocaloids, who have gained official recognition as memes from Crypton themselves; two of them, Neru and Haku, made cameos in the spinoff manga and games.

Yowane Haku

File:Much Smaller 02 1853.jpg

Haku is a depressed counterpart of Miku, created by those who cannot use Miku properly. She is usually off-key when she sings (although sometimes she produces nice songs), and envies Miku's voice, to the point where she drinks. A lot.


Akita Neru

File:Much Smaller 03 2718.jpg

Neru is another counterpart of Miku, made by people who make Miku's pitch too high. It is said she represents those who are too lazy and impatient to use Vocaloid correctly and give up half way through, which is indicated by Neru's Tsundere nature. Her origin can also be explained as a personification of Trolling.

Her voice is usually an edit of Miku's, but can also come from Rin's, depending on the editor.


Hachune Miku

File:Ss hachune 581.png

A chibified version of Miku, created especially for her Leekspin video and helping to push her (and arguably, Vocaloids as a whole) into the mainstream.


TakoLuka

File:Much Smaller 05 3226.png

Meaning "Octopus Luka", this is Luka's disembodied head with her hair turned into pink tentacles. She somewhat resembles the yukkuris associated with Touhou, but shouldn't be confused with them.


Sakine Meiko

File:Much Smaller 04 2429.jpg

A teenage counterpart of Meiko made when the popularity of Hatsune Miku left Meiko behind.


Calne Ca

File:Calne 3162.jpg

A rather disturbing original character created by Deino starring in his PV Machine Muzik. She is sometimes also called Karune Ca. Calne Ca's body is humanoid, but her face has a clearly cybernetic red eye and finger-like appendages in place of a lower jaw, her right arm is mechanical and clawed, her left arm is skeletal, and her legs are also mechanical and oddly twisted. She runs on batteries and requires a robotic companion to occasionally replace them (humorously and disturbingly at once, her batteries are located under her skirt). Calne Ca is usually seen wearing an outfit resembling Miku Hatsune's.

She is closely associated with insects and other crawling critters, such as wharf roaches and cockroaches. The world of Calne Ca is full of grotesque and deathly imagery.

Deino has also created another similar character named Calcium, who apparently shares the same "endoskeleton" as Calne Ca. Calcium appears in a PV for DJ Technorch's Ataraxia and appears similar in appearance to Calne, but with red eyes and more normal-looking robotic limbs as opposed to Calne's wierd appendages.

The two also star in Bacterial Contamination with an all new look!


  • Big Creepy-Crawlies: in the Bacterial Contamination PV, the nightmarish Vocaloids trade their mechanical appendages for organic spiny insectile limbs.
  • Dem Bones: the base form of Calne Ca is a mechanized skeleton. The stuff that makes her look even remotely human is additions.
    • Associated with her is a skull with a cybernetic eye walking on 4 mechanical legs.
  • Killer Robot: even though Deino has insisted that "she is not a brutal character", she definitely has that vibe going.
  • Losing Your Head: has been seen at least once with her head detached and walking on the floor on its finger-appendages.
  • Natural Weapon: Insect Calne Ca's hand-blades that mirror the blades of her robot form.
  • Our Clones Are Identical: those weird faceless mannequins, be they clones or androids.
  • The Worm That Walks: not quite, but she is occasionally seen pretty much swarming with creepy crawlies.

Fan-made Vocaloids, excluding genderbends

See here for a larger, more inclusive list.

Akaito

Kiaito

Nigaito

  • Ill Guy: A more harmless variant. He's described as getting sick often, so he wears his scarf over his mouth.
  • Sleepyhead: If the fanart is to be believed, he's definitely this.

Taito

Miku Zatsune

Aku Yamine

Kiku Juon

Dell Honne


Other

FL-Chan

Iku Acme

  • Does This Remind You of Anything?: Listen to one--no, any--of her songs. Except for "Chaosmaid".
  • The Immodest Orgasm: Her voice was designed to sound ridiculously suggestive; as a result, it's hard to create a song for her that doesn't resemble Donna Summer's background "vocals" in "Love To Love You Baby".
  • Meaningful Name: "Akume" is a Japanese slang term for orgasm, and if you've watched any Hentai at all you know full well what "Iku" means.
  • Meido
  • Ms. Fanservice: She's pretty much designed to be this.

  • McHatsune, a McDonalds-style Palette Swap of Miku, is used on Youtube a lot.
  • In this MikuMikuDance movie, Neru Akita and Haku Yowane did the fusion dance to become a rather popular character named Haru Akine.
  • Shiteyan'yo and Larval Rin, "creature" versions of Miku and Rin (similar to Takoluka but purportedly scarier). However, some producers show them to be quite sympathetic.

Notes

  1. Her formal name is "SF-A2 Code Name miki", but most people shorten it to this for the sake of brevity.
  2. Note that she was released at the same time as Yuki and Kiyoteru; however, she was announced first
  3. Also has a Fic based off of the song, here
  4. That's right, the second. Sweet Ann was first. However, Miku was the first in Japan.
  5. It seems to rely on suggestive angles a few times.
  6. Of course, if you consider them to be robots, they lean closer to the latter.
  7. His formal product name is "Gackpoid", but he is given an official character name of Kamui Gakupo.
  8. Her formal product name is "Megpoid", but she is given an official character name of GUMI.
  9. GUMI from the seiyuu's nickname as a child, and Megpoid from Megumi.
  10. His formal product name is "Gachapoid", but he is given an official character name of Ryuto.
  11. Utattemita is a category on NND used by people performing covers of various songs
  12. although not in Japan, where Miku was first
  13. as in "Mr. Ooma", although it's a pun on "ooma san", meaning "produced in Ooma"
  14. and technically also Kaito
