Arranged in semi-quasi-sorta-alphabetical and chronological order.

    open/close all folders 



SF-A2 mikinote 

The eighth Japanese Vocaloid and the firstnote  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 sometimes 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

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 nave child, or... quite adventurous and bold.

Hiyama Kiyoteru

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. His voice provider is the Japanese singer Kiyoshi Hiyama.

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

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. Her voice provider was initially unrevealed, but was eventually confirmed to be utaite singer Kyounosuke Yoshitate.

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

Yuzuki Yukari

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 the first vocaloid to be released with the Voiceroid software, where users could have her speak normally.

Her gray bracelet, located on her right, arm says, "She unites you all with her voice." Seen here.

She is voiced by Chihiro Ishiguro.

Tohoku Zunko

A female Vocaloid released in June 2012 for the Vocaloid 3 engine. She was originally created as a mascot of a relief campaign in the Tōhoku region following an earthquake and tsunami that devastated the region on March 11, 2011, later released as a Voiceroid. After enough donations were received, AH Software gave the go signal to turn her into a fully fledged Vocaloid.

She is voiced by Satomi Satō, known for voicing Ritsu Tainaka from K-On!


YAMAHA (Bplats Inc..)


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.


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.


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".

Zola Project

A trio of males, Yuu, Kyo and Wil were made for the 10th Anniversary of Vocaloid. Their voices were made to blend well together, and provide vocals for all kinds of situations, be it as a group, solo, duet or even back-up. Their art was done by Yoshitako Amano of Final Fantasy fame. Several impressive and realistic sounding demos have been release so far, such as this and this.

  • Art Shift: Go through numerous instances of this thanks to the variant covers. Each member has about 4 different shifts.
  • Ambiguously Brown: Wil, considering his skin tone is darker than the extremely pale Yuu and Kyo in official artwork. As a bonus, his voice actor, Maui, is Filipino.
  • '80s Hair
  • Nonstandard Character Design: It's what's to expect from the guy who did art for Final Fantasy.

Anon & Kanon

Left- Anon, Right- Kanon.

anon & kanon were released by Bplats in March 2014. The two girls are sisters, Anon being the younger of the two, in high school, and can cover a variety of songs. They are the first Vocaloids to be confirmed as twins, but the second to be confirmed as siblings. Their voice providers have yet to be released.


flower is a Vocaloid created by YAMAHA. She is a Kuudere. She was released for digital download on May 9th. Her full product name is V-flower.


Sachiko is the 4th vocaloid made for the V4 engine. Her voice is provided by Enka singer Sachiko Kobayashi.

    Crypton Future Media 


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. She was re-released on Vocaloid 3 engine on February 4th, 2014, which includes an English voicebank and several "append" variants (like Power and Whisper). A 14-day trial edition of her V3 Power voicebank is already available for download for those who want to try her out.

Fanon often portrays her as enjoying sake and frequently getting drunk. Many songs show she likes beating up on Kaito, however these tropes have been subverted many times in some Tear Jerker love songs.


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. Like much Vocaloid fanon, in some areas of the fandom these ideas have gone out of fashion.

Hatsune Miku

The second note  Vocaloid for the Vocaloid2 engine, though the first from Japan, and Japan's third in total. She is voiced by Saki Fujita. 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, which began development way back in 2011, was released (at least in downloadable format) on August 31, 2013 (which coincidentally is her birthday), including an Apple Macintosh version, a first for Vocaloid.

In Fanon she is portrayed as a kindly, cheerful girl, although occasionally a bit odd. Due to the amount of songs and fanwork she possesses, the Fanon has been subverted as much as it has been Played Straight. She has a bright, generally-used-for-high-pitch voice, which also has a very large song demographic.

  • A-Cup Angst: Most notably in one PV of "World is Mine" where she slaps her love interest with a leek for commenting on her breasts.
  • Anti-Gravity Clothing: Her square ribbons are stated to hold her hair in place without physically touching it.
  • Alternate Character Reading: The name "Miku" is a pun based on the fact that the kanji can also be read as mirai, or "future."
  • Artificial Human: In Test Tube Princess.
  • Bare Your Midriff: Her new official "American" design.
  • Berserk Button: Do not touch Miku's panties. It never ends well.
  • Badass: There are two videos that fit the description of showing her awesomeness... among other things.
  • Bilingual Bonus: Her English voicebank, though only played straight with her V3 bundled package available since September 26, 2013 (the English voicebank which came out earlier can be purchased separately like Megpoid English).
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: In Synchronicity. Len frees her of the mask that made her like this in the second song of the three-part series.
    • Also this way in Festival of Asylum.
  • Breakout Character: And how!
  • Character Celebrity Endorsement: She starred in a series of Toyota Corolla commercials (for the USA), as a result of Toyota being the main sponsor of her 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.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: For example...
  • Detached Sleeves
  • Determinator: In the 3D PV of Hello, Planet, she doesn't let little things like her arm falling off from journeying across the devastated post-apocalyptic world to find her master.
  • Does Not Like Shoes: Her Append appearance, as well as the Append outfits of several other Vocaloids, has her barefoot.
  • The Dragon: Both literally and in terms of the trope, but trapped in human form, in Synchronicity.
  • Expressive Hair: In some fanart, at least.
  • Girlish Pigtails: All the way to the ground!
  • Greater Need Than Mine: In 1/6, in which she gives up her aspirations of going up into space to help her depressed boyfriend. Subverted due to the fact that her dream is still possible, she'll just have to wait longer for it, but it's a kind gesture nonetheless.
    Miku: The sun gives its light
    To let the moon glow
    Can you let me help you like them?
  • 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.
  • Multicolored Hair: Her English voicebank design sports varying shades of neon colors on her hair, from dark green to lime, and even purple.
  • Our Dragons Are Different: She's actually a dragon trapped in human form and forced to ensure that no-one interferes with the process of offering girls to die to appease the other and even stronger dragon in Synchronicity.
  • Panty Shot: Fandom universally has given her striped green panties.
  • Plucky Girl: In Fanon.
  • Psycho Lesbian: To Gumi in Escape The Princess.
  • Rapunzel Hair: It goes all the way down to her ankles for crying out loud!
  • Roaring Rampage of Revenge: Towards Tei in the first song Tei made.
  • 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).
  • Smark: BE MIKU got her labeled as one.
  • Spoiled Sweet: A common portrayal in fanon.
  • 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.
  • Stripperific: Her recent "Racing Queen" design by Goodsmile Racing for the Sepang GT race in Malaysia as reported here.
  • The Cameo: Miku (singing World is Mine) appears in The iDOLM@STER 2 for the PS3 as a priced DLC opponent for the game's Festival stages. Furthermore, she has an alternate download pack which gives her the Miku Append outfit and an alternate song (Melt).
  • 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 Re-release: 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.
    • Her V3 Japanese voicebanks, which are all updates of her original V2 voicebanks, available since September 26, 2013.
  • With Friends Like These...: Several others aren't always too fond of Hatsune's status. This doesn't stop them from singing with her.
  • World's Most Beautiful Woman: Often depicted as such. Deconstructed in "Alice of Human Sacrifice", where her beauty leads to her becoming an incredibly vain queen and fearing what would happen if she grows old. The song never gives specifics as to what happens to her next, but most PVs and fan interpretations have this phobia leading to her going completely insane.
  • Tsundere: During "World of Mine" where she is a type A; bitchy and lovesick at the same time but mellowing to the later at the end of the song.
  • 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

Left, Rin; right, Len.

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 Asami Shimoda. 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 used to be portrayed as a somewhat cruel Genki Girl and Len as an Adorably Precocious Child.

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.

  • Adorably Precocious Child: Len, Len, Len. General fanon consensus is that he tries to act mature for his age, yet fails miserably.
  • Adorkable: Either one of them (and sometimes both of them), depending on the song. For example, Len is this in Kokoro and Rin is this in Suki Daisuki. General fanon consensus is that Len is usually this trope, though.
  • Ax-Crazy: Rin in Karakuri Burst.
    "Kowashite! Kowashite!" (Destroy! Destroy!)
  • Badass Princess: Rin in Nemesis of the Ruined Kingdom.
  • Big Brother Instinct/Declaration of Protection: While Rin is usually depicted as the older of the two, Len is usually portrayed as being very protective of her (Servant of Evil and Kaito ga Uninstall for example). This is usually what leads to his death.
  • Bishounen: Whenever Len's drawn to look older than a young teenager, he's this.
  • Brother-Sister Team: In some songs, such as Trick and Treat and Desert Bluebird.
  • Butt Monkey: Often Len, but not nearly on the same par as Kaito.
  • Chick Magnet: Fanon has Len having a habit of triggering Cuteness Proximity in female Vocaloids. Heck, in one Project Diva video, a Rokurokubi falls in love with him instantly!
  • Chronically Killed Actor: Both Len and Rin.
  • Creepy Twins: "Trick and Treat".
  • Damsel in Distress: Rin becomes one in Synchronicity, which takes place in a world where girls are selected at a young age to appease a dragon by singing and dancing for it nonstop until they die of exhaustion and starvation. Naturally, Len and several of the other Vocaloids take it upon themselves to rescue her.
  • Damsel out of Distress: Again, Rin in Synchronicity. By the finale, she and Len work together to take down the dragon, and while both of their life-forces are being drained because of it, they still manage to kill the dragon (and Rin even does most of the work!).
  • Deadpan Snarker: Len is often portrayed as this in fanon.
  • Detached Sleeves
  • Evil Versus Evil: In "Karakuri Burst". With Rin as an Axe Crazy assassin and Len as a corrupt, Nazi-like soldier, it's kind of hard to tell who we're supposed to root for.
  • Foil: Fanon often depicts them as foils for each other. The most common ways include:
    • Foolish Sibling, Responsible Sibling: Rin is the foolish sibling and Len is the responsible sibling.
    • Masculine Girl, Feminine Boy: Rin is often depicted as tough, scrappy and rambunctious with Len being calmer, more polite and wiser.
    • Brains and Brawn: Len's usually the brains and Rin's usually the brawn.
    • Sibling Yin-Yang: Songs usually describe Rin as outgoing, Tsundere, selfish, stubborn and/or plucky; Len is usually portrayed as intelligent, sensitive, cute, and/or serious. Their Appends stretched this further. They have a juxtaposed duet in Paradise of Light and Shadow, the second part of Synchronicity which accentuates this dynamic. Len sings of how Rin was taken away from him and how she suffers alone because of their cruel world, while Rin herself sings of a world where everyone can smile and protecting it.
    Rin: A song of hope and light for tomorrow
    Len: A song of despair and shadow to bury the past.
  • Genki Girl: Fanon interpretation of Rin.
  • Girly Run: Len in this PV of Alice in Musicland.
  • God Save Us from the Queen!: Rin in Story of Evil. She also plays a much sillier example in Death Should Not Have Taken Thee.
  • Greek Chorus: In "Witch Hunt", they appear as two commoners, providing exposition.
  • Hair Decorations: Rin's ribbon.
  • Heel Realization: Rin's character in "Story of Evil", after Len's character sacrifices himself for her. Len has one of these in "Spice!", when he is in the middle of pretty much trying to rape Rin.
  • Heroic RROD: Part of the main conflict of Synchronicity. Len has to find Rin before she succumbs to this.
  • Half-Identical Twins/Opposite-Sex Clone: Depending on what side of the twins vs. mirror images debate you're on. note 
  • Iconic Item: Aside from oranges and bananas, the roda rora (Roadroller) is also synonymous with the Kagamine twins.
  • I Want My Beloved to Be Happy: Len, usually in regards to Rin and/or Miku.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: A common interpretation of Rin. The best example of this would probably be "Okay, Green is the Enemy", where Rin gets jealous of Miku after she catches Kaito's attention, and asks Neru for advice on what to do about it. Neru suggests that they leave nasty comments on her videos and make her life miserable, but Rin turns the idea down because while she's jealous of Miku, she still admires her and doesn't want to do anything that would hurt her feelings.
    • Len at the end of "Spice!".
  • Kid-anova: Len in "Spice!"...but according to many FanVids, his true love is the equally manipulative Rin.
  • Kiddie Kid: Rin is often portrayed with a childish personality, in contrast to Len's maturity.
  • Knight Templar Big Brother: Len is often depicted as this in darker songs. He takes on a more heroic variant in Synchronicity.
  • Left-Handed Mirror: In fanon, they are generally portrayed as opposites in personality while being nearly identical in appearance.
  • Little Miss Badass: Many consider Rin to be the toughest of the Vocaloids.
  • Magical Girl: Subverted, with Len as a Magical Kitty. Seriously.
  • Meaningful Name: 'Kagamine' means 'mirror sound', to emphasize their mirror-image nature.
  • Momma's Boy: When Meiko is depicted as the Team Mom, Len is almost always being smothered by her, sometimes in more ways than one.
  • Morality Pet: Len is very often this to Rin when she's at her absolute worst. His role in "Story of Evil" is a noteworthy example.
  • Mr. Fanservice: Len is usually the go-to Vocaloid for male fanservice.
  • Only Sane Man: Len. C'mon, he's surrounded by not so smart Miku, Gumi and Kaito, Tsundere Rin, Meiko, and Luka, and naked-happy Gakupo (and Kaito).
    • Unless he's portrayed as a shota. Then the Only Sane Man is usually Luka.
  • Order Versus Chaos: In "Karakuri Burst", wherein Rin is Chaos and Len is Order. Interestingly, it's also a case of Evil Versus Evil.
  • Pink Means Feminine: Rin wears a pink dress and a white hat with a pink ribbon in the PVs of Prisoner and Paper Plane.
    • She also has a pink bow in one PV of Suki Daisuki.
  • Playing Against Type:
    • Len gets unusually sexual in "SPICE!". "Mase Lenka" takes his sexuality Up to Eleven. invoked
    • Don't forget Messiah of Desire, though he has only one target (Luka) he's unexpectedly aggressive. invoked
    • I think one can safely add Gigantic O.T.N. and maybe Plus Boy/Purasu Danshi to this. Basically O.T.N. is short for "Ochin" which is japanese for.... I guess you get the gist.
  • Plucky Girl: Rin in Fanon.
  • Pretty Fly for a White Guy: Len is depicted this way in quite a few videos.
  • Tender Tears: To say Len looks adorable when he cries is an understatement.
  • Sailor Fuku: Rin, however, gets shorts, while Len gets the male version with the tie.
  • Sarashi: They provide the page image, each modeling her/his own gender's variation.
  • Screw Yourself / Twincest: It's not entirely unusual to romantically pair the two of them up with each other. Many songs indeed played this up.
  • Separated at Birth: Played for Drama in many of their songs.
    • In Synchronicity, they're both this but linked psychically, this being the reason for Len's determination to save her from the dragon that so many girls before her had died for.
  • Servile Snarker: Len (the soldier) is this to Rin (the king) in Death Should Not Have Taken Thee!.
  • She's Got Legs: Rin's shorts are minuscule. Some fan artists elongate her shorts for dignity, as a result.
    • Project Diva 2 has proven that Len doesn't have bad looking legs either...
    • Project Diva -f- as well. Thank you Punkish and Stylish Energy modules.
  • Stalker with a Crush: Len in Like, Dislike.
    • Also Rin, in "A Loving Robot."
  • Stupid Sexy Flanders: Len, especially in Project Diva 2.
    • Here and here too. 'Legs that beg captivation' indeed...
    • Made worse by the release of Dreamy theater....enjoy higher graphics version of the above songs here and here.
  • Sweet Polly Oliver: The video for "Skeleton Life" has Rin pulling one of these.
  • They Killed Lenny: Len tends to die at the end of the songs he's in.
    • Rin also tends to die a lot - to a higher degree than Len, actually - but many people don't realize that.
  • Tomboy: Rin in fanon.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Oranges (Rin) and bananas (Len).
  • Trickster Archetype: Rin is very often portrayed as such in fanworks and songs.
  • Tsundere: Rin in Fanon, but Len can be if paired with Kaito or Gakupo.
    • or Len with Miku for that matter.
  • Theme Twin Naming: Their names (R and L) are plays on 'right' and 'left' respectively.
  • The Ojou: Rin in the Story of Evil series.
  • Tiny Tyrannical Girl: Rin often gets this treatment in fanon.
  • Token Mini-Moe: Both of them among the Cryptonloids, but Len especially.
  • Updated Re-release: The Kagamine Rin/Len Append. A V3 release has been confirmed in the future.
  • Villain Protagonist: They tend to be this in the darker songs. Usually, it's Rin (Evil series, Fear Garden and Thirteen Year Old Killer) but Len has played this role in The Riddle Solver Who Couldn't Solve Riddles, Spice! and Psychotic Love Song and both of them have played this in Trick and Treat.
    • Len could be argued as an Anti Villain Protagonist in the Story of Evil, too. Though motivated by sisterly love, he is still The Dragon to the Royal Brat Rin and participated in a lot of unsavory acts at her command (including killing his adoptive father). Of course, his sacrifice tends to overshadow that.
  • What Have I Done: Rin in Message of Regret.
  • Who Wears Short Shorts?: Rin wears short shorts!
    • And apparently so does Len in Project Diva 2.
  • Wholesome Crossdresser: Len has done so on a couple of occasions (sometimes against his will). And he looked quite good doing it.
  • Zettai Ryouiki: Rin in Karakuri Burst.
    • Len's "Punk" costume in Project Diva 2.

Megurine Luka

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 — as The Stoic, although Not So Stoic tends to creep in.

    Internet Co. Ltd. 

Kamui Gakupo/Gackpoidnote 

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 has often portrayed him as somewhat goofy.


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 voice actress.

Notably, she is sometimes given a Fanon personality more grounded in normality a Plucky Girl, consequently not quite reaching 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.

A new English voicebank was developed with several demos shown, and was eventually released on February 28, 2013, available at the English Vocaloid Store


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 Masuda 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 has often portrayed 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?


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. His voice provider is Japanese voice actress, Kuniko Amemiya.


Another Vocaloid using the 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 raise 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 on 21st December 2011, along with Oliver. She's voiced by Eri Kitamura.


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. Eventually, she was officially released for V3 on August 5, 2014 with an updated version of the original vocal and a new additional vocal.


A vocaloid by Internet Co, released for the V3 engine on February 14, 2014. Noted for having the largest vocal range of any released Vocaloid. Here is one of her demos.


A Vocaloid released by Internet Co. as part of the "Character Artist" series. She was released on October 16, 2014. Her voice is provided by Chiaki Ito of AAA fame.

    i-Style Project 

i-Style Project collab Studio DEEN and Sufer's Paradise

Aoki Lapis

Another vocaloid using the Vocaloid 3 engine, released on April 6, 2012. Her style of music is known as "lifestyle", and that she is 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 singernote  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.


The second Studio Deen Vocaloid, her voice was determined by a contest just like Lapis before her. Merli has been described as Lapis's Darker and Edgier sister, which really shows. Strong-minded and tsundere, she's a charming and mysterious girl who changes facial expression all the time. She's basically naive, but so innocent that she usually pretends to know everything ad hoc. A demo of her voicebank can be heard here. She was later revealed to be voiced by Misaki Kamata.

01R Ring Suzune and 01L Lui Hibiki were announced at the end of May 2011. They were 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 character for the then-upcoming Vocaloid3 engine (as it was later revealed).

When they were presented as the winning characters, they had undergone 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. However, in late 2013, the official website became inaccessible, leaving their status unknown. Both of them are currently presumed to be cancelled.

  • Ambiguous Gender: Lui, with visibly curly lashes and high cut shorts. In addition, the profile description states him to be "easily mistaken for a girl because of his graceful manners...", and you're all set.
  • Bishounen: Lui's original appearance was actually Pretty Boy with a touch of youthful masculinity... despite the plucky bow.
  • Detached Sleeves: Ring sports these.
  • Hair Decorations: Lui, a boy, wears them.
  • Meaningful Name: Take into account that Ring's original design had a theme that consisted of rings, in particular the ones that used to hover around her ankles. When it comes to translating her original last name, it reads as "Bell Sound, Ring".
    • Similar to the Kagamines, Ring and Lui's official title names stand for "Right and Left".
  • Nice Shoes: Lui's official design, transparent boots with a silver heel.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Ring (as well as her original design) is usually depicted with hair to her ankles.
  • Who Wears Short Shorts?: Lui wears short shorts!
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Ring's new official hair color. She had white hair as Suzunone Ringu.
  • Zettai Ryouiki: Ring, in both incarnations.
    • As Suzunone, it was her boots that gave this effect.

    Other Japanese producers 

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


The first Vocaloid devloped by Exit Tunes, Mayu is a Yandere-influenced Vocaloid.


Utatane Piko

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.



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.


Tone Rion

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.

1st Place


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.

  • Breakout Character: Is one of the most popular of the V3s, often featured in group pictures with the most famous Vocaloids.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: Her basic personality is that of a dreamer, and she is often portrayed in fan art and PVs with a distant look on her face. Her songs sometimes give this impression.
  • Fashionable Asymmetry: Her legwear.
  • Heroic Albino: Fans often interpret Ia this way; her hair is cream colored and her skin is even lighter, her eyes are light blue, and her biggest song, Imagination Forest, has an alternate version of her with red eyes and powers living alone, afraid to make friends but genuinely good hearted. Her fandom portrayals vary from a quiet daydreamer girl to a highly intelligent but shy young woman who wants to break out of her shell. This is in sharp contrast to Sukone Tei and Mayu, who fans also consider albino but who have negative portrayals in the fandom. (Keep in mind there is no canon for Vocaloids.)
  • I Just Want to Have Friends: Wants to form friendships with everyone. Also used and Played for Drama in Imagination Forest, with a Cute Monster Girl closely resembling IA who isolates herself from the outside world because of her ability to make others be Taken for Granite.
  • Mad Dreamer: She is usually interpreted as a more serene version of this trope, but it still fits.
  • Nave Newcomer: Another fanon interpretation of her, given that she is a relatively new Vocaloid and is strong, honest, and optimistic.
  • Plucky Girl
  • Rapunzel Hair
  • Wide-Eyed Idealist: Also apart of her given personality is that she wants to get along and be friends with everyone.
  • Zettai Ryouiki: On her right leg only.


Kobayushi Matcha

Part of a multimedia project called Project 575 by Sega, which uses a lighter version of Vocaloid 2. Matcha is the calmer, but more introverted of the two. Her voice is provided by Ayaka Ohashi.

Masaoka Azuki

The other main character part of Project 575. Azuki is the more cheerful one, but is rather impatient and often acts before thinking. Her voice is provided by Yuka Ootsubo.


Macne Nana

The very first voicebank to have previously been an UTAUloid! She was first part of the Macne Series, made because before Vocaloid Neo, Vocaloid was not compatible with Mac. Her voice provider is Ikezawa Haruna.

We've Inc.


The 37th Vocaloid released for the VOCALOID 3 engine in collaboration with We've Inc. and Internet Co Ltd.. Her debut was in Vocalo-P ni Naritai!

Her voice is described as "tomboyish and ready to rock". Her voice is provided by Ai Kakuma.

Yan He

The second Chinese Vocaloid, released on July 11, 2013. Her design was chosen from a character design contest like Tianyi before her. Her design is quite sporty, influencing some Fanon portrayals.

    Other Chinese Producers 

GYNOID Co., Ltd.

Xing Hua

A Vocaloid created in collaboration with GYNOID Co., Ltd. and YAMAHA. She is the first Vocaloid to have a Taiwanese voice provider, and has a Taiwanese accent as a result. Her voice is provided by Wang Wenyi.

The English VOCALOIDs

    Power FX 


Sweet Ann

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

Fanon often portrays her as an elegant woman. In some media she is made fun of for the stitches on her neck (PowerFX is fond of making "monster" Vocaloids), the background of her boxart resembling "Satanic flames" and the fact that the lighting on her boxart makes her look like she's got a bad fake tan.

Big Al

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 has often portrayed him as a goofy Man Child.

  • 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.
  • Iconic Item: A pocket watch, apparently as a reference of him being "late"note .
  • Man 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.
  • 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.



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.

He provides the voice of Puppycat in Bee and Puppycat.

  • A Boy And His Bird: He's often depicted this way the the bird featured on the boxart, James. James' popularity was so great that VocaTone took advantage of it, in ways including but not limited to: 1) an official demo song of Oliver, "Dinky Dink", where James is shown wearing Cool Shades; 2) Oliver's official Twitter account claims to actually be administered by James, with Oliver dictating to him what to post; 3) James was hinted to be able to speak; and 4) VocaTone played an April Fool's joke by announcing that James would become a Vocaloid of his own, as Bird-loid.
  • Bandage Brat: He has bandages covering his feet and left eye. The artist noted that it's to substitute the stitches in the previous PowerFX characters.
  • Bratty Half-Pint: One of the earliest fanon portrayals of Oliver.
  • Breakout Character: Not on Miku's level (yet) but so far, he's slowly but surely been rising in the ranks to becoming one of (if not the) the most popular English Vocaloid.
  • Cherubic Choir: He can be used to make one.
  • Child Soldier: His official design gives off vibes of this. And he has bandages on his legs and left eye... Atlthough it's actually based off the Vienna Boy's Choir
  • Cool Pet: James the bird. In tribute to Oliver's co-creators in the U.S., it's an American goldfinch.
  • Creepy Child: Some songs like this one portrayed him as such.
  • Curtains Match the Window
  • The Cutie: Oh God... Just listen to this and try to resist the urge to hug him through the screen.
  • Does Not Like Shoes: After releasing a silhouetted version of Oliver, the artist stated that he looked too girly with shoes, so they were scrapped. The "youthful innocence" variant of this trope is a popular interpretation of his character as a result.
  • Eyepatch of Power: He has a bandage over his left eye.
  • Hotter and Sexier: When he's drawn in his older teenage years.
  • Nice Hat


A male Vocaloid released on September 10, 2013. He is voiced by Swedish Visual Kei artist, YOHIO. Despite his Swedish origins, he has English and Japanese voicebanks. Beta of his Japanese bank can be found here, and a couple of his English demos are here and here. His design was determined by a contest, chosen by YOHIO himself.



Cyber Diva

Cyber Diva is the first new English Vocaloid for V4. She is notable for having been recorded with a new English recording script. It has been confirmed that she is part of the VY vocals, and is also known as VY 3.

She was released on 4 February 2015.




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 sometimes portrays him as a Butt Monkey.

Due to the obsolescence of the Vocaloid 1 engine, he is due to be retired and pulled out of sales after December 31, 2013.


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 has sometimes portrayed her as a Genki Girl.

Due to the obsolescence of the Vocaloid 1 engine, she is due to be retired and pulled out of sales after December 31, 2013.


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 has sometimes portrayed her as The Stoic or a Shrinking Violet.

Due to the obsolescence of the Vocaloid 1 engine, she is due to be retired and pulled out of sales after December 31, 2013.

  • Iconic Item: Is occasionally depicted with a lipstick due to that particular item showing up on the loading screen when one visits Miriam Stockley's website.
  • Shrinking Violet: Most fans depict her as very shy and quiet.


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 frequently 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.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: a glass of wine.
  • 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.


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 to her, 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 DeviantArt.

As such, in Fanon, she is often portrayed as a friendly, cheerful weeaboo.


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 usually portrays him like Prima: classy and rich.


The first Vocaloid3-engine vocaloid by Zero-G. She is promoted as having a Celtic voice bank. She was first publicized through a demo (cover of Enya's Only Time) which was played during this Vocaloid Producers Panel. Her second demo was a Rose Royce song, "Wishing on a Star".

She was released 22nd of December 2012.

The Spanish VOCALOIDs

    Voctro Labs 

Voctro Labs

Bruno and Clara

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 T y Yo". The current design is by artist "Rumple".


The second female Spanish Vocaloid on the Vocaloid 3 engine, released on December 15 2013 as a download (her boxed version is yet to be released). Her character design was made by Noriko Hayashi, the winning result of a contest held by Voctro Labs. The voicebank itself was acutally part of a collaboration between Voctro Labs and the Spanish Pop Band La Oreja de Van Gogh, where the Vocaloid was used by the band to listen to their own written lyrics before recording their songs. Supposedly the voicebank was based on the band's current lead singer, Leire Martinez, though this has yet to be confirmed.


    Vocaloids in more languages 

SBS Artech


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), who has since debuted in the Korean girl group GLAM (she's the girl riding the bicycle).

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" .

    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

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

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

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.


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

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

Calne Ca/Calcium

A rather disturbing original character created by Deino, first starring in his PV Machine Muzik. She is sometimes also incorrectly called Karune Ca. Calcium is a mechanized skeleton with a cybernetic red left eye, finger-like appendages in place of a lower jaw, a clawed mechanical right arm, a skeletal left arm, and twisted, mechanical legs. 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). Calcium is usually seen wearing an outer shell and outfit resembling Miku Hatsune's, and goes by the alias Calne Ca while doing so.

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.

Calcium also appears in a PV for DJ Technorch's Ataraxia, but with red eyes and more normal-looking robotic limbs as opposed to Calne's wierd appendages. She was recognized by Crypton as a derivative of Miku, and has been featured in some of their events.

Calne Ca also stars in Bacterial Contamination with an all new look!

  • Absolute Cleavage: When "dressed" as Miku she leaves the vest undone, when she's wearing anything at all.
  • Big Creepy-Crawlies: in the Bacterial Contamination PV, the nightmarish Vocaloids trade their mechanical appendages for organic spiny insectile limbs. In the Machine Muzik PV, she's accompanied by a large scorpion-like creature.
  • Body Horror: Her legs, mouth, one eye, and an arm are grotesque cybernetic prostheses, and her other arm is disproportionately long, three-fingered, and skeletal.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: According to Word of God.
  • 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.
  • Hair Decorations: A spiny insect-thing.
  • Humanoid Abomination: Her biological insect-like form, for a given definition of "humanoid". Calcium fits the trope even better; she only looks human, but you can tell that there's about her...
  • 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.
  • Ms. Fanservice : Your Mileage May Vary greatly, but some people think her to be attractive in her human form. Not so surprising considering her creator making artworks featuring her in which she has some gloriously fanservicey outfits such as this and this among others ( yes this is calne ca in case you have doubts, she simply is human form in these artworks ). And if you turn off the mature filter you can find more.
  • 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.
  • She Who Fights Bullies: In Bacterial Contamination. She fights against her bullies so hard, that eventually she becomes one. Her reaction upon realizing this Isn't pretty.
  • Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds: In Bacterial Contamination, where she's a severe victim of bullying.
  • The Worm That Walks: Not quite, but she is occasionally seen pretty much swarming with creepy crawlies.


An invokedUncanny Valley-esque chibi version of Hatsune Miku based on a memetically creepy Nendoroid costume of her from 2011. Fanon likes to portray her as Cute But Psycho.

    Fan-made Vocaloids, excluding genderbends 
See here for a larger, more inclusive list.



  • Dojikko : His biggest thing is how clumsy he is. For this reason, his item is a first-aid kit.
  • Ill Guy: See above.


  • 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.


Zatsune Miku

Yamine Aku

Kiku Juon

Honne Dell

  • Workaholic: Fanon depicts him as an insomniac workaholic, to pay off Haku's drinking debts and support them.

Miscellaneous Fan-Made Characters



Acme Iku

The mascot of Maidloid, a voice synthesizing engine like Vocaloid, but intended to create erotic sounds rather than singing.

  • 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.

Image-Line Software


The mascot of FL Studio, a Digital Audio Workstation (DAW) software released by Image-Line Software commonly used by expert Vocaloid producers in the West. FL-Chan was created by Japanese artist Uruido after a comment made by FL Studio programmer Didier Dambrin stated that he wanted a Moe Anthropomorphism of the software. A voicebank was made in UTAU, but its usage requires one to own a copy of FL Studio.
