** In songs like "Disappearance of Hatsune Miku" and Mikuo and Miku's duet "Light", the master of the computer (i.e., the person who operates the Vocaloid software in question) qualifies for this trope--he (or she, though it's usually a he) usually ends up deleting/uninstalling the Vocaloid or something connected to the Vocaloid, under the assumption that the Vocaloid's just a computer program. In the computer, meanwhile, a sentient (albeit artificial) lifeform is slowly fading from existence.

* HeadphonesEqualIsolation: In [[http://www.nicovideo.jp/watch/sm21479692 Balsam]], the protagonist is shown wearing headphones at some points. The entire song is about the protagonist socially isolating herself from her peers, and refusing to admit that she's lonely and needs help.



* JerkassGods: In ''The Name of the Sin'', the Goddess of Fate curses the narrator for the sake of a [[ItAmusedMe cheap laugh]]. This is lampshaded later in the song, with the narrator saying she's cruel.

** The unfortunate reality is that a male Vocaloid is ''always'' a big risk. Kaito flat-out bombed in his initial release, Kiyoteru is easily the least popular of all of AH's products, Tonio barely gets the time of day, and Big Al (by far the best-received of the V2 English Vocaloids) has gotten at best mixed reviews. On top of that, any man who wants to break into the market now will have to compete against Kaito, Gakupo, Kiyoteru, Big Al, ''and'' [=VY2=]. A few new male ones are in the works, but more and more of the new characters (especially the Japanese ones) have been female.
** The sole exception to this is Len Kagamine, but this is justified by being partnered with Rin Kagamine in the same product. To make it stranger, Len's voice bank comes from the same voice actress that Rin's voice bank originates (Asami Shimoda). The male vocals aren't completely down and out, however: Fukase has gotten more widespread reception over the course of the V4 era, Oliver pretty much replaced Al as the most well-received Engish male vocal, Dex is represented pretty fairly in VOCAMERICA, and Longya's songs at the [=VSinger=] 2016 concert were met with plenty of fanfare, so there might be hope for them yet.

* ConsumingPassion: Machigerita's "Full Course For Candy Addicts" has lyrics clearly talking about cannibalism, but phrased in a creepily erotic manner.

* TheCoverChangesTheMeaning: Gakupo's slow mix of "Disappearance of Hatsune Miku". In the original, Miku's voice was meant to sound hurried, broken and desperate. Gakupo's slow cover is a much calmer (but still melancholy sounding) ballad that makes it feel as though Gakupo wishes to FaceDeathWithDignity.

* ObliviouslyEvil: Part of what makes ''Kagome Kagome'' so tragically disturbing is that the [[CreepyChild creepy children]] in it seem to genuinely believe that their "game" is supposed to be fun and have no idea that what they're doing (read: tricking people into playing with them and then killing them) is wrong.
