Hololive -Myth- note 

  • American Kirby Is Hardcore:
    • Downplayed. While the Japanese cast's motifs are usually more straightforwardly cute or beautiful, the first English generation is themed around "edgier" genres like horror, mystery, the supernatural, or some combination of the three. They're still very cute, mind you.
    • Where the Japanese branch members generally started their careers by playing up the wholesome idol "seiso" characterization, the HoloEN branch are unsurprisingly more like traditional western streamers and not afraid to frequently be crass.
  • Attention Deficit... Ooh, Shiny!: With the exception of Ina, all of them admit that they have absolutely microscopic attention spans, which many of their fans find adorable or hilarious.
    • Amelia is easily frustrated and angered by tasks that take more than a few minutes' effort, which is why she plays shooter games.
    • Gura hates reading, continually forgets what she was supposed to be doing every couple of minutes without a written list, and has No Sense of Direction.
    • Kiara is a Motor Mouth who gets easily fired up and goes on long tangents when she has a lot of room to talk while blanking out in the middle of tasks.
    • And finally, Calliope is the most easily distracted of the five to the point where while playing games, she tunes out both the other four's voices and the chat, forgets her controls, falls asleep, runs off chasing anything interesting, and spaces out into a world inside her own head, which is magnified by her tendency to stream while exhausted or intoxicated.
  • Bilingual Bonus: They all can speak and understand Japanese to some extent as well as English, with Amelia having the weakest command of the former.
  • Breaking Old Trends: They are the first non-Japanese generation to debut with five members like the generations of the main Hololive division instead of three.
  • Breakout Character: All of them achieved 100k subscribers within a day and by the end of their first week they had all reached 200k subs and Gura had broken 300k. Gura would in turn hit one million by the end of her first month. In January 2021, Gura hit two million subscribers, a first for all of Hololive, while Calli hit one million subs later that month. As of February 2021, Ame also reached one million subscribers, with Kiara and Ina both closing in on 800k, and none of them showing any signs of slowing down.
  • The Cast Showoff: Lampshaded by Coco. Every member of the first generation of Hololive EN has talent that was put to great use during the day of their debuts:
    • Calliope is an incredible rapper, debuting four original songs during her first week, and made her own stream opening animation and the introduction animation for Kiara.
    • Kiara is one of the most proficient at speaking Japanese, is capable of bilingual dubbing during her streams and is actually trilingual as she also knows German.
    • Ina'nis is a professional level artist & animator and drew the PV artwork for the Hololive EN announcement video.
    • Gura showed off her fantastic singing during her debut stream and is a highly skilled rhythm game player.
    • Amelia is skilled as a video editor, has a lot of experience with streaming and Vtuber software, and is skilled in FPS games just like Botan, Aqua, and Towa of the Japanese branch.
  • Color-Coded Characters: All five have an associated color from their design that they use as their heart emoticons. Calliope is red, Kiara is orange, Ina is purple, Gura is blue, and Amelia is yellow.
  • Cute Monster Girl: They have this as their theme; a grim reaper, a phoenix, an Atlantean shark, a tentacle monster, and a normal human detective. On a more meta-level with Amelia, she’s jokingly treated by fans as similar to a monster movie monster, with the actual monster girls being innocent victims.
  • Friendly Rivalry: Surprisingly, the fandoms from America and Canada have a friendly rivalry with one another, at times competing with one another to see which country can give the biggest and most donations. Calli was famously caught in the middle of the first Superchat War, but the other girls are not immune either, as Gura discovered.
  • Funny Foreigner: Their tastes and senses of humor tend to lean more towards western cultural norms compared to the rest of hololive without really playing it up like Coco does; this is seen more through their Twitter interactions with each other and other members as well as in their group streams. To name just two examples, Kiara Rickrolled Calli during a collab stream, and Mori's first tweet was "Doko the hell am I".
  • Insistent Terminology: The brutish pig monsters in the Nether in Minecraft are called Hoglins. Gura and Ina refer to them all as Pumbaas instead.
  • Multinational Team: Calli, Gura, and Amelia's accents imply they are American, Kiara speaks German as her first language and has confirmed she is Austrian, and Ina is ethnically Korean currently residing in Canada, as her English has several subtle affectations of a Vancouver accent.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: The reaction of all of them when they'd inadvertantly described ENMA-chan as 'slippery and thicc' while playing Madlibs.
  • Promoted Fangirl: They are big fans of the existing Hololive vtubers and tend to get very excited when they show up in chat.
  • Pun: Each member's fanbase name is based on a pun: Calli has the "Deadbeats" (dead + beats), Kiara has the "Kiara Fan Club" (KFC, as in Kentucky Fried Chicken), Ina has the "Tentacult" (tentacle + cult), Gura has the "Chumbuds" ("chum" can mean either friend or shark food), and Amelia has the "Tea-Mates" (teammates).
  • Really 700 Years Old: Every member's official age is listed as being beyond a normal human's. Calli being The Ageless, Kiara being eternal due to Resurrective Immortality, Gura losing track sometime after five millennia, and Ina'nis' Vague Age. Amelia initially seemed to be the only member that averted this, but it turns out she is a Time Traveler, so she doesn't age normally either.
  • Surprisingly Good English: All of the Holomyth girls speak fluent English. Kiara and Ina have subtle accents (with Kiara admitting her first language is German and Ina being implied to be either first or second generation Korean), while Calli, Gura, and Ame speak it so naturally that it is believed they are native speakers.
  • True Companions:
    • It's very common for the members to watch each other, and during their debuts, each member hyped up each other. The group has become remarkably close despite the clear time differences, and have stated several times wishes of doing an all members offline collab and a trip.
    • Calli and Kiara exemplify the group's camaraderie, even though they play off their friendship as Vitriolic Best Buds: since the two live close to one another in "the part of the underworld close to Japan", they hang out in the real world and enjoy one another's company.
  • Unusual Euphemism: Shared among all of them, they tend to refer to breasts (or in the case of Ina, her tentacles) as 'boing-boings.' They are also likely to refer to love as 'teetee'.
  • Vague Age: None of the members has a defined age, with each member's "official" age poking fun at this: Calli's age is listed as "No", Kiara's is "Eternal", Ina's is obscured by an ink stain, Gura's is "Over 9000" with the exact number changing whenever it's brought up, and Ame's is "??"
  • Walking Techbane: It's joked that it isn't really an EN stream without technical difficulties. Problems from the typical to the frankly bizarre have happened to the generation, including things that never happen to other gens (like Ina's avatar suddenly showing up in the middle of Kiara's stream for no reason).

    Calliope Mori 

Mori Calliope; Calli; "Your Boy" [JP: 森美声/もりかりおぺ; CN: 森美聲]

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/cali_debut.png
"Guh!"

"The Grim Reaper's first apprentice. Because the world's medical system advanced so dramatically, Calliope became a VTuber to collect souls. It seems that the lost souls vaporized by the wholesome relationships of VTubers flow through her as well. In the end, she's a gentle-hearted girl whose sweet voice contradicts the morbid things she tends to say, as well as her hardcore vocals."

Debut date: September 12th, 2020
Birthday: April 4th
Height: 167 cm
Fanbase name: Deadbeats
Illustrator: Yukisame

Species: Reaper (in a human body)


  • The Ace: The most musically talented out of EN, being an accomplished rapper and singer, playing a multitude of instruments, as well as constantly composing her own original songs.
  • The Alcoholic:
    • In almost every stream, she pops open a bottle of the absolute cheapest wine she can get from the convenience store and chugs it straight from the bottle. She keeps a wine glass around for decoration but doesn't use it. According to her the stuff tastes awful, but she's not letting that stop her.
    • In her first Japanese only stream, she took a sip of 95% Spirytus for every English word she let slip and every answer she got wrong on her Japanese test. By the end of the stream, she took at least twenty sips. She was supposed to have another stream much later in the day, but ended up having to cancel it due to being too intoxicated.
    • Eventually she addressed this, as according to her a few friends had commented on her early streams making her look like she had a serious drinking problem when in reality she doesn't drink that heavily often, commenting that it was mostly due to nerves. In response, she cut down on how often she drinks alcohol on-stream and now frequently goes out of her way to point out that she's drinking water so viewers don't worry about her. While she isn't as heavy of a drinker as she was originally, she will openly admit to drinking beer during collab streams and her free talk streams are often labeled as wine parties.
  • Ain't Too Proud to Beg: A very comedic example. She resorts to having a dedicated stream to begging Atlus permission to stream Persona 3 (Specifically the FES version). She does this for nearly an hour and a half.
  • All Girls Want Bad Boys: Calli has a bit of a reputation for being a Chick Magnet among her fellow streamers, usually as a result of her painting the outward image of herself as a hip "bad boy" reaper, both in her streams and her music. Notably, several Hololive JP talent have expressed their attraction to her. Polka particularly loves her for her foul-mouthed demeanor, saying she wants to marry a woman like Calli, whereas Suisei found herself infatuated with her due to her cool attitude and good looks, on top of reciting lyrics from her music. Subaru also mentioned taking a liking to Calli, which caused an influx of angry chats from Kiara, who would then go on an angry tirade in their next collab about how betrayed she felt (jokingly, of course).
  • Amazingly Embarrassing Parents:
    • Her "reaper mother" has told her that they used her music in a spin class and Calliope has asked her not to tell them that she was the person who wrote it. She has also met Kiara and is very fond of her and the relationship she has with Calliope, frequently asking her daughter how Kiara is doing and what she's up to.
    • She revealed during a post stream Superchat readout that "papa Reaper", her father, collects what can only be assumed to be used secondhand bootleg anime figures, and will regularly send her pictures of whatever new figure he has found for his collection.
  • Apologizes a Lot: Is very self-conscious about her image to the point of never wanting to come off as abrasive, so she almost always apologizes whenever she makes a joke that can be taken in even a slightly offensive way.
  • Aw, Look! They Really Do Love Each Other: For as big of a tsundere as she is towards Kiara, there's no shortage of moments that show that she greatly appreciates and values their friendship, such as going on a spa trip and an expensive hotel trip with her. She's also not above retweeting fanart shipping her with Kiara, and doesn't hesitate to defend Kiara or their relationship when either is called into question.
    Calli: [reading a superchat] "This is my first akasupa and I'm giving it after watching a clip of your early Kiara collabs, I'm glad you're friends now." [chuckles] What do you mean?! I love Kiara!
  • Badass Teacher:
    • She went into more detail on her day job after having a rough day, which caused her to act extremely goofy on stream to blow off stress. According to her, she teaches very young reapers how to swing their scythes. This is best seen during her English teaching stream, where she is shown being very effective at teaching.
    • After her chat had spammed an emote to her ire, she removed it and issued a punishment very smiliar to that a teacher would give to a misbehaving student: the fanbase as a whole would have to write a 30 page essay in Times New Roman 12 point single space font on why they are being punished and why they deserve to have the emote back.
  • Beneath the Mask: She tries to present herself as a cute and graceful reaper-in-training before literally saying fuck it during her first rap and revealing what she calls her real self. While she still tries to maintain her image, it tends to falter when she gets annoyed.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Despite her friendly demeanor most of the time, she can and will demonstrate why she is a reaper when incredibly focused/tilted if her Doom Eternal playthrough is anything to go by.
  • Bilingual Bonus: Her music often features a mix of English and Japanese lyrics. In particular is her debut hit "Excuse My Rudeness But Could You Please RIP" which uses the word "DIE" in place of the Japanese word "dai", such as in "Sugoi DIE-suki!"Translation  and "Donmai DIE-joubu!"Translation . In addition, she also raps, "You reap what you fucking SEISO"Explanation 
  • Brown Note: Invoked several times.
    • She owns a recorder and refers to it as Hell's own instrument, showcasing exactly what she means by playing it deliberately badly. It ended up having the opposite effect from what was intended, and because her fans loved it she ended up having to play it for the entirety of a multi-hour superchat reading stream because she promised a note for every donation. She also sarcastically suggested learning streams for it, which caused recorders to sell out on Amazon Japan.
    • For the purposes of track mixing, she had also ordered a harmonica and several kazoos, all of which she enthusiastically plays terribly, exclaiming how much she hates it before continuing to play. At the time of writing, she is also waiting for a slide whistle and an Aztec death whistle.
    • She has mentioned wanting to sample an actual calliope in order to produce "demented circuscore" music.
  • Butt-Monkey: If Gura isn't the one getting this trope, then it's certainly Calli. Just like Gura, she also tends to be a frequent victim of tease and misfortune mainly because of her poor gaming skills. Her streams also frequently have technical issues, and as mentioned in Cringe Comedy below, her main source of humor tends to be her being put in embarassing situations much to her dismay.
  • Call-Back:
    • During the Among Us collab between the 5th Gen and EN members, Botan says "Excuse me, but did the reaper just RIP?" after noticing that Calli had been killed, referencing Calli's debut track. Polka would also recite the name of the song whenever she had the opportunity to kill Calli.
    • Her "date" with viewers gets rudely interrupted by Ghost Rider towards the end.
    • In Calli's new song, "Off With Their Heads", a variation of the hook of "Dead Beats" is brought back.
  • Captain Ersatz: Despite its liberal use, Calli had a bit of a scare when her audience told her that Ghost Rider belongs to the House of Mouse. She then tried to play it off by saying the image she used of him in a previous stream was her own original character, and her chat suggested names such as Ghoul Driver or Gou Strider.
  • Catchphrase: She has so many that she decided to make a BINGO card out of them.
  • Character Development: Off-stream, Calli and Kiara are great friends. On-stream, however, their antics tell a slightly different story. At the start, Calli was very much a Harsh-type Tsundere towards Kiara. Most evident in their first duo Minecraft collab where Kiara's bombardment advances would constantly draw out Calli's harsher side. Fast-forward two months later, Calli is now more of a Sweet-type tsundere, singing more praises of Kiara and treating her much more kindly on-stream (though the sexual advances and intimate suggestions still make Calli cringe).
  • Cloud Cuckoo Lander: Downplayed. As she's gotten more comfortable with streaming as well as just happier in general, she's started opening up more to her audience as well as letting her natural personality out more, and it turns out that she is very strange in terms of her sense of humor and tastes. It's frequently joked about that she's actually always some level of drunk due to how loopy she can act, even on an average day that is relatively stress-free.
  • The Comically Serious: She's the most straight-laced of her group, taking on the role of a straight man when in group streams.
  • Contralto of Danger: She has a deep voice, especially when she raps.
  • Cool Big Sis: Gives off this vibe to Gura, most evident in their Minecraft collabs, happily explaining stuff like her audio recording process to her.
  • Cowardly Lion: Despite liking horror aesthetic in games (her favorite series is Castlevania and one of her favorite games is Bloodborne) she does not do well when playing actual horror games such as Phasmophobia. She still tries to put on a brave face throughout such experiences and goes through with them but it is clear that the fear starts getting to her rather quickly. She will try to deny it, but once something really scares her, her screams can rival Gura's.
  • Cringe Comedy: Her main source of humor revolves around how much she can (intentionally or otherwise) embarrass herself, such as by saying things in a very stilted manner while cursing at herself under her breath for how off-putting she feels that her audience would find her. For example, her second Japanese learning stream included a segment of attempting Duolingo for her less fluent viewers. It turned into what was basically a PSA on why it's not a good way to learn Japanese because she slowly seemed to lose her sanity at how painfully awful the lessons were until finally switching to a JLPT N5 mock test.
  • Curtains Match the Window: Pink hair and eyes.
  • Cute But Psycho: It isn't immediately obvious, but she makes it quite clear that, as a reaper, she enjoys killing and views not being allowed to do so as a sacrifice she has to make to be an idol. Her raps make this especially clear.
  • Cute Clumsy Girl: She tries to remain calm and collected most of the time, but has a lot of technical issues at the user level while streaming (at least early on) due to not being used to it. This causes her a lot of embarrassment. Adding to her clumsiness in later streams is her drinking habit, which has made her quite a bit more accident prone than her peers.
  • Cuteness Proximity: Animals and children easily distract her, particularly in Minecraft. She once forgot what the gang was doing to chase after a bunny and a child Pigman twice in the same stream. She also wants a cat when she moves to her new home.
  • Damn You, Muscle Memory!: While playing Papers, Please, she earned enough money to upgrade her booth, letting her control the deny/confirm stamps with the tab key instead of manually with a mouse. Not being used to this earned her a citation for accidentally turning away a cleared entrant.
  • D-Cup Distress: While the shapeliest of the group, she has said on stream that she envies Ina and Gura's slimness, suggesting some level of unhappiness with the fact; this mostly stems from her sense of fashion, stating that most clothes she wants to wear would look better on a slimmer figure rather than her buxom self.
  • Demonic Possession: Claims to be "borrowing" the body she presents herself with.
  • Determinator:
    • Watching her Doom Eternal streams reveals that she is not good at it (she admits as such) and plays it with a controller, further making it hard. This doesn't stop her from doggedly trying and trying again until succeeding.
    • Calli absolutely refused to let a terrorist attack kill her guard friends in Papers, Please, so she kept playing December 19th over and over again until she absolutely killed all three attackers before they could kill any of the guards.
  • The Ditz: Aside from a lack of awareness in games, she almost dropped 30K USD on a penthouse suite due to misreading the price listing.
  • Does Not Like Spam: She spends part of her debut stream saying how much she hates cantaloupes and stressing that her name isn't pronounced like it.note 
  • Don't Fear the Reaper: Despite her appearance and how she portrays herself in her raps, Mori is friendly to everyone and does care for the wellbeing of humans. The times she got huge superchat donations she expressed everyone to "take care of yourselves. It's not your time yet!"
  • Don't You Dare Pity Me!: Played for Laughs. When playing Clubhouse Games 51, she made it abundantly clear that she didn't want Amelia to go easy on her, despite admitting that she's not that good at video games.
  • Drives Like Crazy: As her "A Way Out" collab with Kiara shows, Calli can be very reckless behind the wheel. She has no problem running people over for fun, and attempted to drive a car at high speed in reverse.
  • Drugs Are Bad: The one time she tried "the Devil's Salad", she had a panic attack and lit her hair on fire. Ever since, she has abstained from it.
  • Elective Broken Language: Employs this trope in her own English during her Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes collab with Korone. Knowing Calli's implied background in teaching English, she's fluent in You No Take Candle and is familiar with Korone's Gratuitous English way of describing things. The result is surprisingly more successful bomb defusals than even the members of the Japanese branch that played the game in their native language.
  • Epic Fail:
    • She once ordered a pair of kazoos, thought they didn't work, then ordered another one in the hopes that they would send her one that "worked." She furiously complained to the chat at the start of a stream about it, only for chat to spam that she had been playing it wrong the whole time (Kazoos aren't meant to have a ton of air blown through them; they're supposed to be hummed). After she tried it and was in complete disbelief, she got a bit down on herself over ordering the third one.
      Calli: Hum into the Kazoo? Well fine hold on then. [Squeak] AH? [Kazoo noises] WHAT THE FUUU WHAAAAT? [More Kazoo noises] AHHH! I hate this. I hate it so much. I ORDERED ANOTHER KAZOO! Come on man...
    • In a collaboration stream, she had brought out a beer to drink while playing. Due to not having a bottle opener as well as not wanting to leave her PC in order to find a suitable tool in her kitchen, she ended up slamming it against the table in a vain attempt to open it, causing it to spill out and damage her table in the process.
    • In order to celebrate a subscriber milestone with members, she had also purchased higher end liquor than what she normally gets; a properly corked bottle of wine and a bottle of champagne, which she actually mistook for sparkling wine. Her initial attempts to open the wine ended in failure, as it became clear she had never used a corkscrew before and somehow caused her hand to bleed while opening it, and, having never opened champagne, surprised herself when she popped the cork and nearly spilled it.
    • During a livestream with Kiara, Calli recalls a tale about treating Kiara to a fancy penthouse suite. She spent two weeks talking with the hotel staff, making accommodations, and was literally a signature away from buying it all when she thought "wait, something's wrong here". She looked over the price again; turns out she misread the yen total (thinking the suite was $3,000 USD) and realized that it was ten times as much as she thought she was going to pay for. Thankfully, she was able to back out of the purchase.
  • Epic Flail: Her favorite method of dealing death. Kiara correctly deduced it against the alternative answers of Piano Drop and heatstroke by reasoning that this was the most aggressive option.
  • Even the Girls Want Her: Besides the whole thing with Kiara, Calliope has unintentionally managed to charm several of her senpai, including Suisei (who called her "cool and beautiful") and Polka (who greatly admires her penchant for vulgarity).
  • Fangirl:
    • She's a fangirl for multiple senpais from the Japanese branch but specifically cites Kiryu Coco as her biggest inspiration for joining hololive EN and models her own hard work ethic after hers. She also mentions being a fan of the singers of hololive, but explictedly mentions Suisei when she was being interviewed by Trash Taste's podcast.
    • Her favorite list of rappers is too long to list off, but she has a special appreciation for Snoop Dogg to the point where she owns a Daikimakura/body pillow of him. Because she doesn't smoke the "Devil's Salad", she claims he is responsible for the smoke effect in her stream.
    • When pressed about her favorite Youtube content creators, she mentioned that she was a big fan of Cr1TiKaL and would like to work on something with him, even if it would be on brand for him to make fun of her the entire time. She mentions being a fan of his for at least a decade, and even covered 2019 Guy on an unarchived stream.
    • In terms of games, she has quite a few but nothing can top her love of Persona 3. Due to Atlus' restrictions on streaming as well as Cover's need to obtain permissions for broadcasting content she is not allowed to stream it, but it's such an important game to her that she is willing to dedicate multiple streams to begging Atlus to grant her broadcast permission.
  • Four Is Death: Alluded to when she notes that four is her favorite number after her twitter got 44,400 followers. Her birthday's on 4/4.
  • Friend to All Children: Her steady day job before joining Hololive is teaching little reapers, which while very stressful she does enjoy. Upon seeing a child Pigman in the Nether of Minecraft, she began gushing about how cute it was, talking to it, and chasing it, claiming her teacher instincts had activated because of interacting with her students at school. Her use of the F-word instead of the actual word is because she found out children watch her streams, which amuses Gura. For much of the time in the Nether she wonders aloud where the parents and teachers of the Baby mobs are.
  • Funny Background Event: During a drawing stream she mentions and apologizes for a skeleton on a motorcycle driving by and causing a lot of background noise. She mentions this happens at around the same time every day.
  • Funny Foreigner: Invoked with her approach to anime memes. When asked to deliver her best "Ara ara~" she pronounced each individual letter, delivering a robotic "A-R-A-A-R-A". She also ended up pronouncing "Yare yare daze" with English phonetics, turning it into "Yair yair days".
  • Gargle Blaster: Aside from drinking 95% Spirytus on-stream as part of a punishment for speaking English during a Japanese-only review session, she has been on the receiving end of this during her time attending live concerts.
    Calli: I had ordered a red wine... but if someone told me that it was grape juice filtered with toilet water I would not have noticed a difference.
  • Girls Love Chocolate: Kiara shares that, during their trip together to Hokkaido, Calli would come up to her over the course of the trip and ask for some of her German chocolate (Ritter Sport) to the point where Kiara wasn't able to eat any of it. Not that Kiara minded because she didn't crave for any like she expected and found Calli's newfound love for German chocolate to be very cute.
  • Girls Love Stuffed Animals: There's a few teddy bears on her bed.
  • Graceful in Their Element:
    • One of the few times she isn't a Nervous Wreck is when she is rapping: not only is she a good singer, but her raps allow her to exude confidence and bravado that she struggles to maintain otherwise.
    • She has noted that she is not the most competent at many video games, barring a few she grew up with so that there is some transferrable skill. This is evident during her playthrough of Crash Bandicoot 4: It's About Time, as she is able to get through it much more easily than other games she's played due to being a franchise veteran. She is also, by her own admission, decent at Guilty Gear, but not as good at other fighting games (and even then, only with a fight stick).
  • Gratuitous Japanese: By virtue of living in the underworld directly below Japan, she does know the language, but only at a conversational level, and cannot read kanji all that well. A few of her typical responses or reactions to things will be Japanese words or phrases that she finds particularly fun to say, with "naruhodone"Translation  being a noted favorite of hers.
  • The Grim Reaper: Well, she is his apprentice, anyway.
  • Has a Type: She has stated that her physical preferences in men trend toward the shorter side, offhandedly mentioning Critikal as a reference. This isn't a hard and fast rule for her (her audience has made jokes about cutting their own legs off so she would like them more, which she says wouldn't work) as she still prefers a humble and kind personality above everything, but being short helps.
  • Have I Mentioned I Am a Dwarf Today?: She constantly and insistently mentions being Death, living in the underworld as such.
  • Hell-Bent for Leather: Wears a cape styled like a leather jacket with Spikes of Villainy over her shoulders. As for the Hell part, well... check out her job description.
  • Heroic BSoD:
    • Rather frequently due to viewer generosity:
      • She had a legendary breakdown on her first gaming stream ever because a Canadian (actually a Chinese person who donated in 500 dollars in Canadian dollars just to start a red superchat war) dropped 500 CD on a red superchat that started a massive chain of similar donations (mostly by actual Canadians), and she couldn't believe people would actually give her that much money.
      • It happened again in the next stream where superchat was enabled, as her attempt to apologize for having to private her previous video thanking her fans for the earlier superchats was continuously delayed by an even bigger superchat war erupting between America and Canada that made her around ten thousand dollars in about 20 minutes. She ended up crying from the shock.
        Calli: Please take care of yourselves first.
      • This happened again during her 400k Subscriber party stream. It got so bad she decided to block the superstream donations at 1 hour and 5 minutes... but then it turned out that it wasn't working correctly or she accidentally turned it on again. Meaning that a stream of donations started going in when she wasn't looking. Cue her going from smug to panicked scrambling as she tried to turn it off properly again.
    • She once forgot how Glory Kills worked for a few seconds in Doom Eternal on a Cacodemon (despite doing Glory Kills constantly and being her favorite part of the game) due to the stress and confusion, then realizing her mistake and ranting at herself for a while afterwards while calling herself an idiot.
      Calli: I deserved to die for that.
    • After mentioning that her streaming schedule revolves mostly around her standard day job (meaning once she's done streaming she's finished all her work for the day) she starts talking about how she relaxes and unwinds, only to actually stop, ask herself what she actually does for fun, and stops talking for about a minute as she has an existential crisis before saying she should really find something to do for herself and take her mind off working.
  • Heroic Self-Deprecation:
    • Despite being regarded as the hardest working member as well as being fairly skilled in everything she's done (art, animation, and music), she constantly sells herself short and thinks she isn't anything special, something she acknowledged in an ESL teaching stream when asked if she liked herself and her response was a shrug followed by a hesitant "I don't... hate myself." It's to the point where she has incorporated it into lyrics on her EP as well as writing an entire song about her own insecurities.
      Reaper Or Rapper? lyrics: I lowered all your expectations and I'll tank 'em again/because I like to diss myself along with all of my friends
      Dead Beats lyrics: Calliope Mori on this goddamn mic!/I don't want your fucking money, I just want your life!/I'm filling syllables with curse words because I am an amateur!/Everybody likes...self...deprecating...rap...I'm gonna stop. Like, I got nothing. I'm so tired, man...
    • She's also usually the first to admit that she's not good at video games, such as when Gura jokingly called her out on "hid[ing] behind the 'I'm Calliope Mori, I'm bad at video games!'", to which Calli responded with "Don't be rude, I know I'm bad at video games!", or when she was playing Clubhouse Games 51 with Amelia and credited moments where she was doing good to Amelia going easy on her.
  • Hip-Hop / Rap: Prepared a rap song for her debut, and improvised another afterwards. She released her songs regularly for the first week after her debut and plans on having at least one new song a month.
  • Honor Before Reason: During her playthrough of Papers, Please, she absolutely refuses to trust the EZIC agents, even burning up $1000 given as a gift that would've allowed her family to afford both food and medicine.
  • Humanity Ensues: She obtained a human body as part of becoming a vtuber which comes with drawbacks such as being able to get sick, needing human medication, and requiring sleep and nourishment.
  • I Need a Freaking Drink: Frequently, due to either exasperation at dealing with Kiara or frustration/embarrassment at herself. This seems to be primarily why she keeps a bottle of cheap red wine on hand at all times.
  • Innocent Fanservice Girl: She is prone to saying some very suggestive things without a second thought or ruminating on the possible interpretations.
    Kiara: "The only way to stop me (from winning this wheelchair balancing minigame) is to seduce me."
  • Insistent Terminology: She has her terms and she often sticks to them, even when they're odd. For example, calling herself "your boy" Guzma-style, always calling her beers "cold ones" even when it gets awkward, and calling the PogChamp emote "Champion of the Pog".
  • Insult of Endearment: Tends to call Kiara "Kusotori" (Japanese for "shit bird"), which out of context sounds like an insult, but the two are Vitriolic Best Buds at worst. They are good friends, even spending a day together at the spa, it's just that Kiara likes messing with Calli and has a tendency to get on her nerves. When Polka started imitating Calli and using the word, Kiara cheerfully but firmly told her that Calli is the only one allowed to call her that.
  • Interrupted by the End: Once cut herself off by mistiming her own outro song.
  • Irony: Even though she is a Grim Reaper, she tends to either A) be the first one to die when playing with others or B) almost never get a chance to be the "killer" in Asymmetric Multiplayer games. This happens so frequently that Gura lampshades this trend during a group playthrough of Phasmophobia:
    Gura: It's kinda ironic how Calli always dies first, even though she's Death. [laughs]
  • Japanese Politeness:
    • Lampshaded in her debut song "Excuse My Rudeness, But Could You Please RIP?", where one of the lines calls out how weird it is that she's rapping in formal Japanese speech.
    • An odd example given she is part of Hololive English, but during her Doom Eternal stream she would repeatedly apologize to the demons she was slaying, all the while calling them Sir.
    • Subverted when she actually speaks Japanese, as she defaults to more casual speech despite attempting to communicate in keigo when speaking to those whom she respects.
  • Just Friends: Calliope does like Kiara as a friend, but she always shoots down any attempts to go past that.
    Kiara: We're [Kiara and Marine] just friends, Calli. I want to make it clear we're just friends, okay?
    Calliope: [cheerfully] As are we.
  • Lady Swears-a-Lot: She frequently drops as many swears as Coco does. Right down to Cluster F Bombs. Despite her efforts to maintain proper language, it is common to listen to her cursing on streams.
  • Love You and Everybody: After tweeting out an image of a birthday shrine for Amelia, Calli's fans started poking fun at her saying that she's cheating on Kiara, with Kiara endorsing the sentiment. Calli's response to people accusing her of cheating was to say you can tell your friends you love them without it being romantic.
    Calli: People saying that stuff about Amelia, too...LISTEN! You can love your friends! Just don't make it weird.
  • The Klutz: She can't ever seem to start a stream without some sort of accident happening, technical difficulties or otherwise. Or both at the same time.
  • Madness Mantra: "Atlus, please let me play Persona 3".
  • Married to the Job: Her response to the ol' "will you marry me" question.
  • Meaningful Name:
    • "Mori" is Latin for "to die" befitting a reaper. She adds more wordplay into her Signing Off Catchphrase "I'm Mori, I hope you remember me!"Explanation 
    • "Calliope" can be written in Japanese as "美声" Pronunciation , which means "beautiful voice", as befitting a singer. It is also the name of the Greek Muse who presides over epic poetry, in addition to a type of instrument.
  • Moment Killer: Not Calli herself, but Ghost Rider has made it a habit to interrupt her audience "dates" in order to hit on her.
  • Money Mauling: Her audience will engage in what can be considered psychological warfare by sending her large donations and either joke messages (such as pretending to buy recorders or concert tickets from her) or genuine messages of support. Due to her confidence and stress issues, she almost always responded to such generosity by either panicking or crying due to a feeling of not having done enough to deserve it. While she has gotten better about accepting such messages of support, she has stated that all she's done is gotten better at hiding her internal panic whenever someone gives her a large donation.
  • Motor Mouth: Has a very fast style of talking.
  • Must Have Caffeine: Averted. When asked about what kind of other things she drinks, she explained that any kind of caffeine and sugary liquids like soda don't mix well with her horrible nerves, digestive system, and energy problems, doing things that go from wildly throwing off her sleep schedule to making her sick. She did use energy drinks when she was younger but can't handle them anymore.
  • My Eyes Are Up Here: Said word for word towards Kiara once during their first collab.
  • Nervous Wreck:
    • Very prevalent in her debut stream and a constant element of her solo streams, especially if she is sober. The only time she isn't this is when she sings her rap songs. Her nerves are even worse if she's playing a video game, where she quickly earned a reputation for her cute panicking and fumbling. She has explained this as a deep fear of disappointing people, but has slowly started to gain her confidence when noting that she still maintains steady viewership regardless of what she does.
    • After explaining that the "smoke" was coming from her Snoop Dogg Daikimura and not her because she doesn't partake in "that substance", she elaborated on the Noodle Incident of setting her hair on fire that the reason why was because her first try of the "Devil's Salad" made her have a full blown panic attack and is why she never touched the stuff again.
  • Never Say "Die": Zigzagged. In an attempt to evade Youtube's demonetization and shadowbanning, she has to come up with various other ways to express the concepts of killing and murder without actually using the words; her go-to tends to be "slay" as well as the overly literal "end human life." She also has to be careful to avoid violating Japanese censorship to sidestep legal issues with her songs' lyrics. However, in many cases she only censors the written lyrics, while saying what she actually means. For example, in "失礼しますが、RIP♡ || “Excuse My Rudeness, But Could You Please RIP?", despite both the song title and the subtitles of the music video saying RIP, what she actually says translates as "Excuse my rudeness, but could you please die?". She also outright says "Korusu no koto ga tanoshii", which means "killing is fun", and "Murder is so fucking kawaii".
  • Noodle Incident:
    • When asked about one of her most memorable "drunk" moments, she confessed to lighting her hair on fire.
    • Before she started singing the soundtrack to Shrek in her 800k karaoke stream, Calli mentions that Shrek is currently banned in the Underworld.
  • "No. Just... No" Reaction: When a commenter asked her "What if you kissed Death-sensei?", she became so disgusted by the idea that she had to step away from her computer to get some mouthwash.
    Calli: That's my teacher! [disgusted noises] I need to go gargle salt water or something, be right back!
  • No Pronunciation Guide: Calliope's name is pronounced "kuh-lye-uh-pee" in English, but the way her name is written in Japanese - かりおぺ - makes the pronunciation "kah-ree-oh-peh". Thankfully, she also answers to "Calli".
  • Now What?: Discussed during one of her Wine Parties. She admits to wanting to get to the top in several things, and as such becoming The Workaholic that she is. She then realizes that she is pretty high up now and at this point does not know what she will do when she is at the top. She gets a small Heroic BSoD from this realization.
  • Obfuscating Stupidity: How she tends to address instances of perverted behavior, by acting like she has no understanding of the topic or Comically Missing the Point.
  • Only Sane Woman: Thus far, the only member of Hololive EN who never resorts to lewdness. When all the other girls are making subtle or not so subtle perverted jokes, Calli always feigns ignorance and stays out of it.
  • Overly Long Gag: After mentioning from time to time that she wants to play Persona 3 on stream, she then dedicates an entire hour-and-a-half stream to begging Atlus to let her do so.
  • Portmanteau Couple Name: In-Universe. She and Kiara are referred to as Takamori, which is even given this hashtag when they collab.
  • Precision F-Strike: After spending her debut stream trying to not to swear out loud, she pretends to be cutesy during her rap song before saying a perfectly timed fuck it.
  • Psychopomp: She became a Vtuber to collect souls and she's able to obtain the ones that were lost from TeeTee.
  • Punch-Clock Villain: After Kiara reacted badly to The Reveal and the ending of A Way Out, Calli tried to cheer her up by pointing out that while Vincent may have betrayed her, Calli is still her friend and only kills her because it's her job (and because Kiara can come back from it).
  • Rags to Riches: The primary reason she is so grateful and was taken aback by the aforementioned Superchat war was due to the opportunity presented to her because of it; she had been streaming off of a laptop from a self admittedly claustrophobic home, and in addition to streaming, works two other jobs; one as a freelancer and the other being a more stable position teaching "scythe-swinging lessons." Because of the generosity of her viewers, she is now in the process of upgrading her equipment, moving to a more spacious area suited for recording, and may be able to dedicate more time streaming now that she's quit her day job.note 
  • Real Life Writes the Plot: A minor example. When Kiara posted a picture of food revealing that she and Calli had dinner together IRL, Calli remained in-character by explaining she resides in the part of the underworld that is directly below Japan.
  • Recycled In SPACE: Not Calli herself but she's notable for staying in-character and maintaining Kayfabe more than any other member in hololive, leading to her giving an underworld twist to any discussion of life outside of streaming. e.g. Calli didn't just go to school, she went to reaper school. She doesn't just reside in Japan, she resides in underworld Japan. She even continued this when appearing away from the vtuber context as a guest on the Trash Taste podcast.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Blue to Kiara's red. Calli is gloomy, sarcastic and introverted, while Kiara is bubbly, cheerful and outgoing. Their contrasting personalities make for great comedic interaction.
  • The Resenter: She spoke about how she used to be this on Trash Taste in regards to idols. She looked at the idol industry and believed it was a bunch of manufactured success with the talent having everything handed to them while she was working hard at making music for a fraction of the recognition. It wasn't until she met and became friends with a few idols that she changed her mind and saw that they were working just as hard, if not harder, than she was and deserved their success.
  • Sanity Slippage: During a track-making/sound sampling stream, she justified her erratic behavior as having lost her mind due to an incredibly stressful day in addition to her normal anxieties, and that acting strange helps regain her composure.
  • Screams Like a Little Girl: Gender inverted. There are times her screams during a horror game sound like they're coming from a very scared male person; some of the more panicked ones have been compared to Tom's.
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: She tried to end her first collab stream with Kiara the second she realized that she was getting Rickrolled.
  • Security Cling: While not physically, during a group session of Phasmophobia she stuck incredibly close to Kiara, begging her not to leave her alone in the darkness.
  • Self-Applied Nickname: She calls herself "your boy" when talking about herself in the third person to her audience; due to her affiliation with hip-hop culture, she's supposed to be saying "ya boy/ya boi," but has trouble with slang, making her come across as Totally Radical at times.
  • Shameless Fanservice Girl: Zigzagged. While she does get easily embarrassed around things that are overtly sexual in nature, she doesn't regard nudity as such; when talking about her spa date with Kiara, she mentioned wanting to take her to an onsen at least once. Kiara finds such places embarrassing, but Calli flat-out stated that she doesn't really mind being naked in front of other people since to her, "it's just a body." She slightly retracted her statement when realizing that it would be Kiara who would see her naked, but would be fine with it so long as she didn't make it weird and dared Kiara to get naked in front of her next time they have a day trip such as this.
  • Shaped Like Itself: When she can't figure out or remember the name for something, she will be overly literal in describing what it's supposed to be and name it as such; she has called Sora's mascot "Kuma(bear) Dude," her PC tower a "techtangle," and she named her character in Gang Beasts "Burger Boss," as he's the boss of all burgers.
  • Signing-Off Catchphrase: "I'm Mori, I hope you remember me!" followed by a hearty and deep "PEACE!"
  • Sinister Scythe: Has one that's taller than she is.
  • Sleep Deprivation: Has admitted that due to her very tight schedule, she very rarely gets more than 6 hours of sleep a night. It got to the point that during a collaboration stream for Overcooked! 2 she had mentioned being up for 36 hours straight in order to try and finish a freelance project.
  • Sleepy Head: Thanks to her multiple stressful jobs, slightly older age than the other girls, love of wine, and anxiety problems, Calliope often exhausts herself and begins yawning and acting sleepy pretty soon after she starts streaming. She actually did fall asleep at least once during the first EN Minecraft collab. She once was convinced by her fans to skip reading superchats so that she could sleep despite feeling bad about it.
  • Special Guest: On the 23rd episode of the Trash Taste podcast.
  • Spikes of Villainy: Her collar has a row of spikes lined alongside it as part of her reaper aesthetic.
  • Springtime for Hitler: In one stream where she gets tormented by yet another series of red superchats (100 USD or more), she starts playing the recorder poorly on purpose to the tune of her background music in order to get viewers to stop. This only ends up pulling in even more red superchats thanking her for the impromptu concert.
  • Starving Artist: From what little is known about her personal life, she embodied this. Despite being multi-talented, she is working two other jobs, barely making ends meet. Her living space was incredibly cramped (from her description it seemed even smaller than a normal studio apartment), with her "desk" seeming to be not much more than a small end table that she didn't even have a proper chair for and had to squat over to use. She also seems to have been living off cheap booze and fast food or instant curry for a while; the former by choice (as she can't taste the difference with expensive stuff) and the latter out of necessity. Only after she joined hololive was she finally able to afford some luxuries.
  • Take That, Critics!: "Off With Their Heads" is The Diss Track directed at certain individuals in the English Vtuber fan community who accused her of being a corporate shill when she stated that the key to being a successful creator was to not just talk about it and do what you enjoy, or to put it as succinctly as she had, "Stop tweeting, start creating".
  • Tears of Joy: Two instances, both of them the result of getting overwhelmed from being showered with a flurry of red super chats from her fans.
    • The first instance was during her "Mad Father" gaming stream, where deadbeats from the US and Canada gave her at least $10,000 dollars in a single night. (See Heroic BSoD above)
    • The second instance was during her Endurance Stream to 1 Million Subscribers; around the 4 hour 22 minute mark she hit the 1 million goal, and as she took a moment to watch the 'rainbow' (the non-stop wave of superchats in the chat window) flying past, she sounded like she was mere seconds away from crying.
      Calliope: You guys are crazy...but you're also the best. I have the best fans...I wouldn't be here without all of you.
  • Team Dad: Her calmer attitude as well as her deeper voice and tendency to sternly discipline her chat whenever they start acting up has given her the reputation as being a tough father; her chat will sometimes refer to Kiara as their mother, much to Calli's ire.
  • That Came Out Wrong:
    • At the end of the song "Dead Beats", she (or rather, a cutesy version of herself) started singing "Deadbeats, jerk it now!". Her more serious self made her stop, since it sounded quite inappropriate, with the cutesy Calli trying to explain that she was referring to a jerky dance, and not, you know....
    • During her debut stream, when it came time to show off her full Vtuber avatar:
      Calli: Alright guys, how about we check out my full body. I will now show you my body. Wait.. wait hold on, hold on, nononono wait wait wait that isn't what-
    • During the Halloween Secret Neighbour collab stream, she'd been having a particularly bad run of dying early in the rounds. Exasperated, Calli described her frustrations as a perpetual condition of hers, although the chat assumed she was talking about Death-Sensei, her teacher. Calli denied it after, claiming the chat was making it "weird."
      Calli: What can I say, I'm attracted to death. Death and me are meant to be, listen. Either I'm killing folks or I'm getting killed. I'm in a dedicated relationship with death, I am.
    • In one Minecraft stream, she crafts some storage chests and talks about how big they are. Her chat immediately ribbed her for it.
      Calli: We want a lot of big chests. Only big chests allowed here. Lots of big ones. ...What? Shut up, chat, shut up!
  • They Killed Kenny Again: Despite being an incarnation of Death, Calli ironically has the tendency of being the first (or only) death in a lot of collaboration streams with cooperative games. In regards to her participation in the first Among Us collaboration, the last match is particularly notable because it's the only one she actually survived.
  • This Is for Emphasis, Bitch!: She said she would only properly say "ara ara" after reaching one million subscribers. After reaching the sub goal, she finally delivers what was promised, and in the most Calli way possible.
    Calli: Ara ara~ [Beat] ...bitch.
  • Time Abyss: Claims to have existed since the beginning of time, or at least as long as things have been dying. Her official age is listed as "No". Yet she somehow still has a specific birthday. note 
  • To Be Lawful or Good: Deciding moral dilemmas is the entire point of Papers, Please, and the game presents a challenge with a recurring character named Jorji, who never actually has his documents in proper order without trying to pull something else like smuggling contraband in with him. However, he is a genuinely nice person who understands you are only doing your job, and is designed to make players feel sorry for him. When he became a wanted criminal, Calli stated that making the decision to detain him was the hardest moral choice she ever had to make in her life.
  • Torture Technician: Has offered to be one to help out in Kiara's "usual room" for re-education purposes.
  • Totally Radical: She tends to use dated slang in a very stilted manner (such as referring to herself as "your boy"), as she's both inhuman and ageless, so her communication skills with modern humanity leave something to be desired. It's not helped by the fact that, even when she does use modern slang, she's old enough that the meaning of some of it has changed, and she didn't know until her fans pointed it out note .
  • Tranquil Fury: An EXTREMELY long series of frustrating deaths during one of her DOOM Eternal streams that nearly made her late for her next collab slowly built her anger and stress while groaning and loudly complaining, until it finally caused her to snap, changing from her Motor Mouth personality to dead silence and focus.
    Calli: [Afterwards: gasping for air] Sorry I had to show you that side of me chat.
  • Tsundere: Type B. She is incredibly nice and sweet to both her viewers and fellow members (although she can get snippy at times), with the exception of Kiara. She has pointed out there's no actual bad blood between the two of them, but it's mostly either out of exasperation in dealing with her antics as well as because she's so comfortable around Kiara that she feels she can give her shit and Kiara will never take it seriously. Calli also isn't above retweeting fanart shipping her with Kiara. Her "tsun" side also comes out whenever she raps, which she confesses is closer to the "real" her.
  • T-Word Euphemism: She makes note of attempting not to swear in her debut and refers to cantaloupes as being an "F-word piece of S-word". This is because she had found out that much of her family watches her streams, including her younger cousins and grandmother, and she doesn't want them to hear her natural penchant for profanity.
  • Verbal Tic: "Guh!" after drinking.
  • Video Game Caring Potential: Calli became very attached to protecting her son and Sergiu (one of the guards who she becomes friends with) in Papers, Please. She goes far enough to reload the same days over and over again to make sure she does a good enough job to keep her son healthy and fed and keeps Sergiu alive from terrorists. Her efforts pay off as Sergiu informed her on December 20th that him and his wife were expecting, and planned on naming the child after Calli's inspector and were leaving a gift at her home before being shipped off to another post. The $100 he gave her was enough for her to seek out a... not-"bad" ending.
    Calli: That's the first bit of actual feel-good happiness I've felt playing this game.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: With Kiara. She helped narrate and animate her storybook intro, but spent a majority of the time in Kiara's debut stream denying they were friends, mostly due to Kiara being a phoenix and thus unable to die. A good example is during the first all-member HoloMyth Minecraft collab: she comforts Kiara with the other girls when Kiara gets self-deprecating over her various deaths in the collab while also laughing at her on the signs marking the various places she died. Calli's obviously the more prickly of the two, but she also often lets her guard down and shows she really does care for and love Kiara.
  • Walking Techbane: Despite tech issues being a constant in the branch, Calli seems to have the worst luck with such things. Aside from simple slip-ups like incorrect scene transition, her original streaming hardware became the source of a lot of trouble for her; she had crashed on multiple streams and for a while was completely unable to host collabs with it, causing others like Kiara to broadcast on her channel due to having better hardware. The laptop eventually gave up the ghost, but not without setting her back weeks of hard work. Ironically, this is in spite of its components. When Calli talked about her new workstation in a side-by-side comparison, it turned out that the laptop was actually very powerful for what it was, and neither Calli nor her audience could figure out why it was causing her so much trouble aside from incredibly bad luck.
  • Wall of Weapons: Hanging above her bed is a board of medieval weapons.
  • Why Won't You Die?: She responds to Kiara's advances in this way; Mori being a reaper, Kiara's inability to die annoys her to no end.
  • Wine Is Classy: Inverted. She enjoys red wine, specifically the cheapest variety available (no more than 3 dollars) and insisted that she drinks it properly out of a glass as opposed to straight from the bottle. She does admit it tastes like crap though. She later justified the choice, being that she genuinely cannot tell the difference between cheap and expensive wine, and that the cheaper varieties still have the desired effect of helping her relax.
  • The Workaholic: Aside from streaming as part of hololive, she is noted to have two other jobs and keeps busy on a near constant basis, never really taking time for herself; according to her, this is because she had a goal when she was younger, but lost sight of it completely somewhere down the line and never stopped to consider why she was still working. This is also lampshaded in her first song where she calls herself a "workaholic business lady gettin' shit done." Later revealed that she doesn't relax at all because she simply doesn't know how to, and is always thinking about work.
    Calliope: I tend to prefer [streaming after teaching] because then I get all my obligations out of the way and can put my feet up and draw, or...[Beat] [to herself] What do I do for fun?
  • Yandere:
    • During their playthrough of A Way Out, Kiara told Calli that an NPC wanted her number and was hitting on her (he was actually asking for Kiara's character's prisoner number). Without a second of hesitation, Calli wanted to kill him, which surprised even Kiara.
      Kiara: He wants my number, Calli, he's hitting on me!
      Calli: Let me kill him.
      Kiara: Eh?! [flustered breathing]
    • During her collaboration with Ina and Kiara for Puyo Puyo Tetris 2, one of Kiara's chat members berated her skill since Kiara was constantly losing. Calli got immediately upset over it.
      Calli: Who is it?! I'll fucking kill them!
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Hers is pink.

Death-sensei

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/poster840x830f8f8f8_pad1000x1000f8f8f8.jpg
SKIP CLASS, GET RIPPED

The Grim Reaper himself, and Calli's mentor. He appears as Calli's mascot, and Calli speaks of him at times.


  • Badass Teacher: He taught Calli all she knows about reaping.
  • Canon Character All Along: Appears in Calli's official bio and also serves as her channel's mascot. Initially, it seemed like Death-sensei existed exclusively as a mascot similar to Flare's Kintsuba, Towa's Bibi, Lamy's Daifuku, or Gura's Bloop. That was until Calli, in her 800k karaoke stream, revealed that "Death-sensei" was an important figure in her life growing up and is "like an uncle" to her. In other words, "Death-sensei" is an alias for a real person, or several people at different points in her life.
  • Cool Shades: Wears a pair of black sunglasses.
  • The Ghost: While appearing as Calli's mascot and Calli voicing him in "Dead Beats" and "Off With Their Heads", he has not made any appearance on Calli's streams.
  • Grim Reaper: Natch.
  • Honorary Uncle: Calli has described the real-life person that Death-sensei is a stand-in for as being "like an uncle" to her. Notably, when someone in the chat asked if she would kiss Death-sensei, she became so disgusted by the idea that she had to step away from the computer to wash out her mouth. Granted, the excuse she gave was he was her teacher, but still.

    Kiara Takanashi 

Takanashi Kiara; Tenchou [JP: 小鳥遊キアラ/たかなしきあら; CN: 小鸟游琪亚拉]

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/zevspkbw_400x400.jpg
"Kikkeriki!"

"An idol whose dream is to become a fast food shop owner. Kiara is a phoenix, NOT a chicken or turkey. (Very important). She works extremely hard since she will be reborn from ashes anyway."

Debut date: September 12th, 2020
Birthday: July 6th
Height: 165 cm
Fanbase name: Kiara Fan Club
Illustrator: huke

Species: Phoenix / Frog note 


  • Abhorrent Admirer: She wants Calliope to love her and teases her constantly, but Calliope finds her repulsive because of her immortality.
  • Affectionate Nickname: Shitbird (くそ鳥, Kuso tori), used by Calli. Featured in Calli's debut stream, this is what Calli labeled her as during said stream. Without context, this name appears to be an insult, but later streams such as Kiara's debut stream revealed that there is no real bad blood between the two and it's just a nickname Calli has affectionately given her, due to her penchant for annoying her whenever she can.
  • Aggressive Submissive:
    • Despite Kiara's penchant for making a lot of dirty jokes as well as incredibly suggestive statements in regards to other girls (especially Calli,) she has also stated that if anything were to happen, she is completely unable to take the lead. When describing such a theoretical situation involving Calli, she immediately started getting flustered, acting much more timid than she normally does; she has also stated in regards to Shamir from Fire Emblem: Three Houses that even though she wasn't her type, if she were to initiate a Wall Pin of Love against her, she would go along with it.
    • During her first German Class stream, Kiara gave a guide on how she would like guys to flirt with her, painting herself as an easily-flustered Shoujo female lead.
  • Alternate Character Reading: "Takanashi" is a real but fairly rare Japanese surname, but for Kiara it's written with the kanji 小鳥遊, which reads as "little birds playing" (kotori asobe). "Takanashi" can be interpreted as meaning "there are no hawks" note  — in other words, the little birds can play because the hawks (their natural predators) aren't around to hunt them.
  • Ambiguously Bi: She insists unilaterally on her love for Calliope, claiming her as "her wife" multiple times and acting as a Clingy Jealous Girl to anyone else who gets close to Calli. The ambiguous part stems from her considering herself very weak to romantic advances no matter who is approaching her or if she finds a man charming enough.
    • Many instances of her showing her love to Calli include: putting their beds together in Minecraft, replying "eat me; I offer my body to you" when Calliope eats chicken in Minecraft, and claiming that she knows Calliope's breasts cup size because she touched them.
    • In addition, she sometimes flirts with the other girls in the group, and also with practically any female character. In a Fire Emblem stream, she got heartbroken after she couldn't marry Petra and said "You can't tell me she's straight, she's at least bi". In fact, Kiara's behavior during this entire playthrough can only be described as "aggressively gay". Appropriately for a phoenix, she is as flaming as they come.
  • Amnesiac Lover: After her Surprisingly Sudden Death and subsequent resurrection on December 9th, 2020, Kiara re-did her debut stream, having forgotten everything during her previous life at hololive, including confusion as to why she has superchats, membership enabled, and 500k subscribers despite just "debuting", and referring to her gen-mates and even members of holo ID Gen 2note  as her senpais. When told by the chat to not forget Calli, her response was a confused "Who's Calli?". After a few moments of Wistful Amnesia pondering the connection between death and "Calli-senpai", she suddenly regained her memories.
  • Animal Motifs: Phoenixes... and chickens.
  • Bad Boss:
    • She has been jokingly accused of running her fast-food chain in such a manner; considering her regular audience is acknowledged as and refers to themselves as her employees and the nature of streaming, she will often facetiously demand that people must pay her in order to stay employed, as well as make absurd requests such as throwing Mario Kart races if they hope to keep their jobs.
    • Her Minecraft chicken farm is touted as being "free range" despite being pretty small and using methods of forced reproduction in order to maintain a steady supply of poultry.
    • She also will threaten her employees with a trip to "the usual room" in case they speak out of turn or threaten to reveal company secrets.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: While generally quite kind and friendly, she can be quick to switch to aggression when things don't go her way. So far she's threatened to incinerate someone and their entire family for failing and embarrassing her (Mario), fired her KFP employees when they won't let her win Mario Kart races, and once threatened a group of Among Us players after hilariously getting caught killing after jumping into line of sight. It worked.
  • Big Eater: Says she eats 53 chicken nuggets a day and that she stays fit by working it off.
  • Bilingual Bonus: Out of the whole hololive EN group, she's the one most fluent in Japanese.
  • Bizarre Alien Reproduction: Talked at length about the reproductive process for phoenixes when explaining that she does not lay eggs; instead, two phoenixes get so hot that they burn each other, and the resulting ashes will have both reborn along with the birth of a new phoenix.
  • Blatant Lies: During one of her Super Mario 64 videos, after she ended up 'eating' her hats after failing some self-made challenges, she declared herself 'naked' and told her chat not to look at her naked body because "I'm an innocent maiden."
  • Catchphrase: Begins her streams with a boisterious cry of "Kikkeriki!" note 
  • Chaotic Stupid: Played for Laughs. During a collab stream where all members of Hololive EN were ranked on a graph according to their purity (in terms of the lewdness they display, tendency to use swear words, etc.) and intelligence, Kiara's character designer said she should be ranked at the bottom left of the graph - maximum impurity and stupidity. Naturally, the phrase "bottom left" went memetic immediately.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl:
    • Kiara very frequently becomes aggressively jealous when any other girls get too affectionate to Calli. She has admitted that she was jealous when Calli did a collab with Korone, despite the fact that not only does Kiara do far more collabs with other members than Calli does, but Calli's collab with Korone was completely platonic and wholesome, while Kiara is, well, Kiara. She also became angry at chat for suggesting Calli ships other than Takamori, with her going so far as banning the word "Amemori" from her chat.
    • When Kiara was playing Minecraft with Pekora and Moona suddenly logged in, Kiara was not happy, to the point that she eventually picked a fight with Moona despite being vastly outgunned (Kiara had a diamond sword and no armor, Moona had an enchanted diamond sword and full diamond armor), although Pekora egging the both of them on probably didn't help. Played for Laughs, as Moona later clarified that the entire scene was improvised (as Moona didn't even know that Kiara and Pekora were streaming at the time) and said that Kiara had DM'd her later to thank her for playing along when Kiara started going "Don't take my senpai from me".
    • Kiara is openly dismissive of the idea of Calli being shipped with anyone but herself. She is shown to be visibly offended when the chat tells her they are shipping Calli with someone other than her, or when someone asks her what hypothetical non-Kiara Calli ship she would prefer.
  • Cool and Unusual Punishment: When Ina asked about what goes on in "the usual room," Kiara responded that two of the punishments were walking around barefoot with the floor covered in Legos and being forced to assemble a 1 million piece jigsaw with a single piece missing.
  • Cry into Chest: During a karaoke collab with Calli before moving back to Austr(al)ia, Kiara broke down crying at the tail end of singing "Leaving on a Jetplane," and from the sound of things this ended up happening, with Calli assuring her in a muffled voice that "It's okay to be sad."
  • Cunning Linguist: Fluent in Japanese, English, and German, with German being her first language. She makes an effort to self-dub herself into Japanese.
  • Curse Cut Short: During a stream of Fire Emblem: Three Houses, Kiara was so upset over Jeralt's death at the hands of Kronya that the second she saw her in a follow-up scene, was about to call her a "fucking whore" but cut herself off at the second word since it would be a bit too extreme, even for her.
  • Damned by Faint Praise: During a cross-generation stream with Choco, Kiara fared abysmally during the general knowledge testnote , but managed to score two points... which is double of Aqua's. For this, Choco ends up calling Kiara a genius.
    Choco: By the way, you aren't the lowest.
  • Dangerously Short Skirt: She wears a microskirt with Grade A Zettai Ryouiki for emphasis.
  • Darkest Hour: Kiara had traveled to Japan originally to work as part of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics (as the torch) and possibly find a long-term career while abroad. When asked about the worst timed moment in her life, she cites it being the obtaining of her visa and travel since it was just before the COVID-19 Pandemic lockdown measures were put in place and the eventual cancellation of the event, leaving her essentially stuck in Japan with no career prospects. During that time she had fallen into the Hololive rabbit hole and when auditions opened up for the English generation, auditioned out of desperation. She mentions that joining possibly saved her life since without it, she would have returned from Japan without a purpose.
  • Death Amnesia: After "dying" (getting her channel temporarily terminated) and coming back, she held a "second debut stream" where she appeared to have no memories of her previous experiences at Hololive, even going so far as to address her fellow Hololive EN members and the second generation Hololive ID members (who debuted after her) as her "senpais" and acting like she had no idea who Calli was. Judging by Calli's lack of reaction (and referring to the chat's panic as "growing pains"), it's implied that this temporary amnesia is normal.
  • Double Standard: While Kiara opposes the idea of Calliope being shipped with anyone other than herself, she herself casually flirts with several other members of Hololive and even jokingly proposed to Burger King on Twitter. She has also admitted that she was jealous when Calli did a collab with Korone, despite the fact that not only does Kiara do far more collabs with other members than Calli does, but Calli's collab with Korone was completely platonic and wholesome, while Kiara is, well, Kiara.
  • Don't You Dare Pity Me!: A downplayed example. In the first week or so of Kiara's career, her fans were worried about her emotional state thanks to her being a slow starter and having bouts of Heroic Self-Deprecation, to the point where the hololive Subreddit had multiple "Poor Kiara needs our help" posts every day. During one stream she asked her fans to stop doing these "pity posts", saying that while she appreciated their concern, it made her look weak-willed and fragile to newcomers and explained that she needs to stand on her own two feet. The fans listened, Kiara thankfully found her confidence soon after, and everything ended on a happy note.
  • Early Installment Weirdness: She admitted that her Seiso proper idol personality in her first two streams that was suddenly dropped was an act that she had decided to put on, but later changed her mind to sticking to her real personality resulting in streams more akin to Matsuri and Marine with frequent vulgar humor, Too Much Information sex talk or jokes, and constant cursing in three different languages, because she says she would rather just do what she wants to do naturally.
  • Everyone Has Standards:
    • She took some time to address concerns that people had regarding her interactions with Calli, namely that there were some people who genuinely believed that Kiara was being too pushy with her on-screen lusting after her and that Calli was starting to dislike her. Kiara assured her audience that she would never do anything to make Calli feel genuinely uncomfortable and they actually are good friends, paraphrased below.
      Kiara: First, if Calli really had a problem with me, she would tell me in private and I would knock it off. Second, she actually does like me a lot but is just really bad at expressing herself, that's just how she is. Third, if she really didn't like me, she wouldn't be going on a fucking spa date with me.
    • For as much of a Lovable Sex Maniac as she is, even she was hesitant to say that she "made babies with Calli's pussy", referring to how she bred Calli's cats in Minecraft. While she did eventually say it, it took her several tries to get that final word out.
  • Exotic Eye Designs: Aside from the color being a very vibrant magenta, her pupils are noted by Calli to resemble skulls. Her illustrator, huke, denied this theory as he originally drew her pupils as standard black circles and it is simply the way that they're shaded which creates the resemblance.
  • Fangirl: For Pekora. She listed her as her favorite senior member as well as a goal of hers being a collaboration with her. When Pekora showed up in her debut stream to wish her luck, she froze out of excitement for a bit before regaining her composure and continuing her introduction.
  • Foreign-Language Tirade: Not above unleashing strings of German expletives if she's gotten especially frustrated.
  • Friend to All Children: Despite having no experience with babies, she is surprisingly good with them. When she discovered her youngest fan was 4 month old Baby Xander she spent the next portion of her stream playing with him and was delighted to find out said baby loved it.
  • Fun with Acronyms: Her fanbase name is Kiara Fan Club or KFC.
  • The Gadfly: Due to Calli's dorkiness, Kiara loves taking every opportunity to flirt with her during collab streams.
  • Gainaxing: She is proud of her boing-boings, which she makes bounce often with her energetic movements. She tried to talk Calli into bouncing her boing-boings with her on a stream, only to get a flat refusal.
  • Genki Girl: Probably the most upbeat and excitable out of all the English girls along with Gura.
  • George Jetson Job Security: She fires all her KFP employees for not throwing against her in Mario Kart 8 after making a private lobby for the explicit purpose of doing so. Everyone ends up rehired in the same stream though.
  • Good Parents:
    • Kiara's illustrator, huke, is seen as this by fans since he is present for most of her streams in the chatroom showing support, though he isn't above trolling his daughter either.
    • After telling her (real) mother about her position as a vtuber, Kiara noted that she was surprisingly supportive and flattered that the fans were so kind in regards to Kiara's stories about her, now making it a point to catch up on all her archives.
  • Gratuitous German: She is a native German speaker and uses several speech quirks associated with Bavarian dialect. She opens off streams with "Kikkeriki", the German onomatopoeia of a rooster's crow, and thanks superchats with "danke schön".
  • Guilty Pleasure: Scene/emo music, namely because it was considered incredibly niche in the community she grew up in to the point that her friends would think she was weird for being into it.
  • Heart Is an Awesome Power: Early on Kiara was quite critical of herself since she felt that her fluency with languages wasn't nearly as good a talent as the other HoloMyth girls' skills, like Calli's singing and Ina's drawing. However, her ability to speak three languages not only lets her communicate with fans all over the world, but it makes her the prime candidate for collaborations with the original hololive girls and allows her to translate for them on the fly. As an example, many identified her as the MVP during the collaboration between EN and 5th Gen in Among Us, as her translation was invaluable in keeping both teams up to date with each other.
  • Henshin Hero: Her gear, especially her belt, gives off this vibe; observers have drawn a lot of comparisons to Kamen Rider OOO Tajador Combo and Hou'ou Soldier, two phoenix-themed Toku heroes. However, she has admitted that she herself has zero knowledge of, or interest in, Toku shows.
  • Heroic Self-Deprecation:
    • While she's usually upbeat, she tends to beat herself up when she doesn't do well at games, especially if it's something she knows the audience is going to be more knowledgeable in. In her first stream of Fire Emblem: Three Houses stream, she almost lost the Mock Battle (as in, the second fight in the game), and only won because of her last character being strong enough to secure the win. She apologized heavily for it, calling herself "bird for brains" even as the chat told her not to worry note .
    • As noted elsewhere, Kiara claimed early on that her "only" talent was for translation and that she felt inadequate compared to the other HoloMyth girls. Since then, she's proven herself to be a very talented singer and artist, and comparisons to professional-level talents like Calli and Ina are doing her a disservice.
  • Hidden Depths:
    • In the second EN collaboration stream, Kiara revealed that before her current incarnation in our universe, she had been a flight attendant, professional trainer, and (non-virtual) idol.
    • Shortly after finally finding her stride and acknowledging how invaluable her conversational and translation skills are, she proposed the idea of hosting a semi-regular talk show with other members of Hololive (including YAGOO) as guests. She has also noted that despite her normal irreverence, her intent with these is to provide actual insightful looks into the lives of her colleagues and will be taking a more serious tone when compared to her other content.
  • The Hilarity of Hats:
    • Despite wearing two hats already, she asked Ina for a third one during a drawing stream (to no avail since Ina was too focused on drawing). After said stream, Ina uploaded a drawing of Kiara wearing a towering stack of hats to which she responded enthusiastically.
    • During Amelia's second stream of Super Mario Odyssey, Kiara had demanded Amelia to give her the hat she just purchased from the game's cosmetic shop.
  • History Repeats: Discussed. Prior to Pavolia Reine's debut, Kiara mentioned how fitting it would be if Reine's first senpai collab after the one-month collab ban period was her, just as Subaru was her first senpai collab after one month, due to all three being bird-themed. Played straight one month after Reine's debut where Kiara would indeed be her first cross-branch collab partner, even reusing the same hashtag Kiara used for her first collab with Subaru, #holobirds.
  • Humanity Ensues: She's a phoenix who has been turned into a human by her magic belt. According to her, taking it off would change her back.
  • Hypocrite:
    • She had made fun of Nene's assertion that Kid Com shows were mature dramas, only to reveal several days later that she had found very old and poorly produced World of Warcraft music videos set to emo/scene music to be emotionally impactful.
    • When collabing with Reine, she claimed that it would be impossible to create a hololive turducken since while Reine and Subaru are a turkey and a duck, respectively, Kiara is a phoenix and not a chicken, seemingly ignoring the fact that Reine is a peahen and not a turkey. She also humorously chewed out Reine for claiming otherwise and not doing her research. Kiara later clarified that she only called Reine a turkey because she saw others doing it and she had genuinely forgotten that it wasn't true, and apologized.
  • Implausible Deniability: During a Superchat readout, Kiara spent a significant amount of time going through her entries on this page and attempting to deny the more egregious claims that have been madenote ; she states that the editors of her entry must be watching all of her content in order to catalog it thoroughly, tacitly admitting to some of the claims.
  • Insistent Terminology: She likes to remind you that she's a phoenix, not a chicken.
  • The Insomniac: Her sleep schedule could be best described as "nonexistent." Her streams will always go long over time and into the night, and even after she's done streaming she has admitted to spending hours afterwards on social media and watching Netflix.
  • Kind Hearted Cat Lover: Kiara has lived with her two cats for the whole two years when she lived in Japan, but her two roommates weren't too fond about letting them into their own rooms for fear of shedding cat hair. The cats would often have to stay in the living room for most of her stay, except for when Kiara let them sleep in her room. Kiara mentioned that during her first after moving back to Austria, it took all of 5 minutes for her cats to adjust to their new home and they slept beside her on her bed. She was too tired for her usual routine of watching Netflix before falling asleep because she was just so tired, and was really happy that her cats gave her that moment of happiness.
  • Knightly Sword and Shield: Wields a shield and shortsword, the latter able to fit inside the former for storage.
  • Lady Swears-a-Lot: Kiara swears much more casually compared to the rest of EN, which she explains is due to English being a second language for her; she has said that she specifically avoids vulgarity when speaking German. Except she admits in German in another stream that she was lying about that, as she later tried to teach Gura bad words and drops constant swears in German while playing against her fans at Mario Kart. She can also be fairly vulgar in Japanese.
  • The Last of These Is Not Like the Others: Not in universe (Amelia fits this bill more), but as revealed by Kiara herself she is the only one in Hololive English to not be a native English speaker, or at the very least not know it since childhood. note 
  • Let's Meet the Meat: She views her audience, specifically her members, as chickens who also work for her. Of particular note is the progression of her subscriber badges which go through the life cycle of a chicken and end in a drumstick and later a bucket of fried chicken, implying that she is raising her viewers for the slaughter.
  • Lovable Sex Maniac: She's on par with Marine in this aspect:
  • Love at First Sight: Her affinity for Calli appears to be this. She had noted when recounting her first impressions of all the other EN members that she found Calli to be quick-witted and naturally funny as well as physically appealing to all of her particular tastes before going on to comment on her kindness and helpfulness leading up to their debut.
    Kiara: When I first met all of them, the one that struck me was Calli... I was like, 'Damn, she hot, what a hot-ass chick!'
  • Love Freak: One of the friendliest, most extroverted members of all of hololive.
  • Mundane Utility: Not herself, but the fact the she is immortal is treated like such by her fellow members. When both were asked which member of Hololive English they would rather be stuck on an island with, Gura and Amelia both placed Kiara higher than the others simply because she can be an endless food supply. It's also the reasoning on why during the group's second Minecraft stream she was the one to try sleeping in the Nether despite knowing that doing so is impossible and typically leads to death.
  • Multicolored Hair: Her hair is primarily a bright orange, but the section behind her neck has some teal mixed into it.
  • No Guy Wants to Be Chased: In a rare turn of events, she was actually the one to declare chat her husbands without any requests. The normally waifu-crazed chat politely but firmly turned her down.
  • The One Guy: Her papa, huke, has the distinction of being the first male to play Minecraft with any of the female idols, having established farms in the EN server. Unfortunately, certain parts of the fanbase were not too happy about this, which lead to huke essentially being banned from playing with the girls.
  • One-Winged Angel: Discussed and joked about during her introduction stream. She claims that she can shift into her true form after pressing the button on her belt, then asks if the audience would like to see it. When it seems like Kiara will transform into a massive, fiery phoenix, the transition instead cuts to her looking the same as she always does... but now holding two fried drumsticks in her hands. Later, during a Super Mario 64 stream, she threatens to unleash her true form on Mario and burn everything he loves to the ground, and mostly didn't do it because she asked her "papa" for permission and didn't get it.
  • OOC Is Serious Business: After seeing comments speculating that Calliope was genuinely bothered by her Abhorrent Admirer behavior, Kiara partially broke character to point out that she and Calliope are friends who've discussed these things off-stream. They've already established what is and isn't crossing the line, and if Kiara ever accidentally went too far Calli can just tell her and she'd stop.
  • Orgasmically Delicious: Invoked Trope. During the stream where Kiara and Calli talked about their trip together, Kiara described the wagyu beef they ate together one night as "the best yakiniku I've ever freaking had. You know, while I was eating, I was constantly having an orgasm!"
    Calli: What.
  • Overshadowed by Awesome: During her first Superchat reading streams, she admits that she feels lacking compared to the other members of Hololive English, who are all so talented while all she has is her mastery of Japanese.
  • The Phoenix: Part of her theme with her profile noting that she'll be reborn from the ashes.
  • Phrase Catcher:
    • "Bottom left" (referring to her positioning on the dumb-smart / impure-pure chart, according to her character designer) whenever she is being stupid or horny. Which is often.
    • "Language, Kiara!" is stated whenever she is being particularly vulgar and is acutely aware that her viewers will call her out on it.
  • Portmanteau Couple Name: In-Universe. She and Calliope are referred to as Takamori, which is even given this hashtag when they collab.
  • The Prankster: One of Kiara's favorite pranks is to rickroll either her fellow idols or her fans.
  • Quality over Quantity: As of holo ID Gen 2's debut, Kiara expressed multiple times that the hololive production cast is in a great spot and she wouldn't mind if they held less frequent auditions.
  • Rage Breaking Point: During a Super Mario 64 stream that went on for one-and-a-half hours going after a single star note , Kiara got increasingly frustrated, and went through the five stages of grief... including, of course, rage of the sort she's never shown before.
    Kiara: ...I am single-handedly going to kill you, Mario. I will kill you. And your family. I will kill you, and Luigi, and Peach, and Daisy, and Toad... every single one of them, I will kill them. I will burn your stupid castle to the ground.
  • Really Gets Around: Non-sexual example. Due to having the strongest understanding of Japanese and her outgoing personality, she has the most contacts with the Japanese branch members and more 1-on-1 collaborations with them than her fellow branch members.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Red to Calli's blue. Calli is gloomy, sarcastic and introverted, while Kiara is bubbly, cheerful and outgoing. Their contrasting personalities make for great comedic interaction.
  • Resurrective Immortality:
    • According to her backstory, she has died and revived many times, each time reincarnating into a different reality. When asked if phoenix meat was part of her menu, she claims that eating her would kill her for good as she can only resurrect from ashes.
    • When her YouTube account got wrongfully suspended in December 2020, she took the opportunity to crack jokes of this being her first phoenix death. Once her account came back online, she held a "Revival" stream where she declared she had risen from the ashes and was reborn, even holding a second debut stream for herself and even having brief Death Amnesia.
    • In late February 2021, her channel got shadowbanned and she lost two months worth of streams and videos, including her second original song Heart Challenger. When the shadowban was lifted in March of that year, she took this opportunity to have a third debut stream, this time in German.
  • Retractable Weapon: Her weapons appear to be shrunken down and worn like a badge when not in use.
  • The Rival: Played for Laughs with Youtube of all things, with the site shadow-banning some of her streams, and even once getting straight up banned from it, fans have started joking how their rivalry is one of the most epic ones of all time.
  • Room 101: Kiara has alluded to the existence of the "usual room", which is where she sends disobdient employees or those who discover company secrets to ensure their silence. She also uses it as a threat to get her employees to cater to her whims as well.
  • Schmuck Bait: Kiara falls for one after Subaru wouldn't reveal the color of her panties the first time.
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: Managed to win a match of Gang Beasts by running away from everyone, letting them fight among themselves or slip up and fall into traps.
  • Screw Yourself: When she plays Princess Connect! Re:Dive, she makes a point of putting the cursor on Pecorine's bust and clicking through all the dialogue there, right after speculating that Pecorine is an Alternate Universe version of Kiara herself.
  • Signature Laugh: Coincidentally, Kiara's laugh sounds just like Pekora's even if she isn't trying to imitate her. She can't seem to remember if she always laughed that way or she developed it after watching all of Pekora's streams.
    HA ⬆️ HA ⬆️ HA ⬆️ HA ⬆️ HA ⬆️
  • Significant Birth Date: July 6th is National Fried Chicken Day in the United States.
  • Sleep Deprivation: Most of EN were dead tired by the time their first collab ran since they stayed awake for each other's debuts, but Kiara earns a special mention for scheduling and sticking with a Fall Guys stream soon after which brings her total time without sleep to 28 hours.
  • Smart People Play Chess: Subverted. She was a member of her primary school's chess team, but was their absolute worst player to the point of not being brought along for a tournament they were attending. In a collab with Amelia, her absolute lack of skill was on full display (although Amelia wasn't much better.)
  • So Proud of You: During a collab stream with Gura, involving her giving the shark Japanese lessons, she was repeatedly impressed by Gura's aptitude to learning Japanese and how spot-on her pronunciation was, citing she was proud of her student.
  • Speaks Fluent Animal: On her profile, the list of languages she speaks starts with "Bird". She has demonstrated speaking chicken (in the form of clucking), and her greeting at the beginning of streams is the German onomatopoeia of a rooster's crow.
  • Surprise Creepy: For those unfamiliar with The Brothers Grimm, Kiara reading German Fairy Tales seems warm and inviting up until it becomes apparent that the stories are very dark.
  • Surprisingly Sudden Death: On December 9th, 2020, Kiara's channel was taken down without any warning. She was as surprised as everyone else, and after some worry decided to meme on it like it's just one of many deaths to come, then setting up an "emergency meme contest" while she waited to rise from the ashes. Then when her channel was restored some hours later, she hosted a re-do of her debut stream, saying she'd been reborn.
  • Suspiciously Specific Denial: Calli ended up being late for a stream after having misplaced her keys following a business meeting with Kiara over dinner. Kiara, completely unprompted, responded to Calli's announcement about waiting for a locksmith by saying she was in no way responsible for her missing keys. While it may have been true, fan reaction was to pin the incident on Kiara as a bid to get Calli to spend the night at her place and stream from there instead.
  • Take Over the World: Her debut stream's storybook opening states she's attempting to take over the world differently in this life, apparently by opening a fast-food chain.
  • Talk Show: Hosts her own talk show, HoloTalk, where she interviews and translates the responses of her guests from hololive Productions.
  • Team Mom: Self proclamed "mom" of Gura, Amelia and Ina'nis, declaring Calliope as "dad" in the process, as shown in this tweet.
  • That Came Out Wrong: During a Minecraft stream with Ina, Kiara expressed her annoyance at her neighbors doing loud construction work next door. Unfortunately, her choice of words left much to the imagination.
    Kiara: Stupid neighbors are still banging, after all these hours they're still banging on something... wait, oh my god...
    Ina: ...Context?
    Kiara: I mean, I mean, they were really, ahem, for hours, I don't know man, I couldn't sleep, I woke up—
    Ina: Context?!
  • The Teetotaler: She vehemently dislikes the taste of alcohol and cannot handle it well, and prefers to drink other things such as soda when out with social drinkers such as Calliope.
  • Tempting Fate: She accurately called out that an entry would be made about her regarding the reading of her own list of entries, as with Implausible Deniability above.
  • They Call Me MISTER Tibbs!: Towards the end of a collaboration with Polka, she had started to address Kiara by her nickname of "kusotori" and making puns with her name such as "Shiny Smily Kusotori" or "Nonstop Kusotori." While Kiara found it humorous, she eventually attempted to tell Polka that only Calli had the privilege to call her that and asked her to just call her by her name.
  • Time Abyss: Kiara's age is given as "Eternal" as she is an immortal phoenix who never stops reincarnating from death every few hundred years.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Pineapples, enough that she loves putting them on pizza and burgers.
  • Transformation Trinket: She has a Kamen Rider-esque belt, sealed with the message "Do Not Use"; according to her, activating it will make her turn into a phoenix again, which isn't really a good idea.
  • Translator Buddy: Has quickly carved out a niche for this on the EN side of things. Due to the other members' comprehension level of Japanese being conversational at best, she functions as a go-between for any of the Hololive Japan members and her own audience, or between the EN members and other Japanese speakers. She was specifically invited to the remix party for Calliope's contest to work as the interpreter for K's, will live translate any Japanese member she collaborates with (as well as help them understand English), and helped keep the conversation flowing during a cross-generation Among Us stream, even in matches where she was eliminated and knew who the imposter was.
  • Tsundere: As Calli has softened up in her on-screen interactions with Kiara, she has started talking more about wanting to spend time with her and how much she appreciates her company and friendship, likely due to Kiara's planned return home in early 2021. Kiara noted her behavior to be a bit clingy and playfully rebuffed Calli's desire for her to show up in her stream chat in a bit of odd role-reversal that saw Kiara becoming a Type A Tsundere out of sheer disbelief that Calli would be fishing for her attention that much.
  • Verbal Tic: As punishment for her poor performance against Ina and Calli in Puyo Puyo Tetris 2, Kiara had to end her sentences with "puyo" for her following stream.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: Has this kind of dynamic with Calli— after all, an undying being will get on the nerves of the grim reaper. Despite that, Calli is very supportive of Kiara, having produced her introduction animation and given her one of her spare microphones, which was of significantly higher quality than what Kiara previously had. Also, while Kiara likes to tease Calli, it's always good-natured ribbing, and it's obvious that she adores Calli.
  • Vocal Evolution: Her earlier streams had her speaking in a quieter, more soft-spoken voice before it gradually becomes louder and more shrill over time.
  • Wide Eyes and Shrunken Irises: On par with Watame's, if not more-so, due to sharing the same Live2D Animator. This tends to happen whenever she's over-excited. During her revival stream she forgot to turn the setting off and was left with wide eyes for ages before she remarked her eyes were getting dry.

    Gura Gawr 

Gawr Gura; Same-chan [JP: がうる・ぐら; CN: 噶嗚·古拉]

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/gura_oct2020_9.png
"a"

"A descendant of the Lost City of Atlantis, who swam to Earth while saying, "It's so boring down there LOLOLOL!" Gura bought her clothes (and her shark hat) in the human world and she really loves them. In her spare time, she enjoys talking to marine life."

Debut date: September 13th, 2020
Birthday: June 20th
Height: 141 cm
Fanbase name: Chumbuds
Illustrator: Amashiro Natsuki

Species: Gura Shark

  • 100% Adoration Rating: While all the idols get along with each other, Gura is especially popular among her peers in Japan. Many Japanese senpais adore her and gush over how cute she is.
  • Accidental Murder:
  • A-Cup Angst:
  • A Form You Are Comfortable With: During her Dead By Daylight collab with Anya, the latter asked her if she had a "real form" she could transform into, to which Gura responded by describing it as "like a typical shark you'd see on television, not a human shark. [...] The length of a car. [...] I'm gonna say... 14 feetnote ."
  • Artistic License – Biology: Invoked. When trying to add a tail to shark hat house, she builds the fin horizontally to which chat immediately tries to tell her that's what a whale's tail looks like and sharks have vertical tails. Upon finally understanding what chat meant, she still ponders how it looks just like her tail and then wonders if she's actually adopted.
  • Attention Deficit... Ooh, Shiny!: She flat out admits to this in the description of one of her Minecraft streams, which summarizes what typically happens in her streams.
    Gura: ok so I was thinking we coul- Oh hey is that a cave? No, we got to stick to the plan. After I enchant this sword real quick. Hey do you wanna build a giant tree? Okay, let's do that but after I make this bread. Oh after that you wanna dig a new canal and move the half-finished hat house there?
  • Animal Lover: She mentioned she worked in an animal shelter, loved it and that she gets attached easily, reflecting that it is easy to miss some of the animals she bonded with.
  • Animal Motifs: Sharks. She claims she is a Half-Human Hybrid with shark heritage.
  • A-Team Firing: The Left 4 Dead 2 collab showed, after one of the levels, that she has about 25% shooting accuracy.
  • Atlantis Is Boring: In-Universe. She came up to the surface because she thought it was boring down there.
  • Berserk Button: Floaties. Originally mentioned during the first collaboration by Amelia to be a rumor that she can't swim without them despite being a shark. It has since become a sour point for her, leading to annoyed retorts when it's brought up during streams.
  • Beware the Silly Ones: While typically one to take humiliating things that happened to her in stride and laugh off jabs at her, if her words during the HoloJP/IN/EN collab of Among Us are any indication she can be quite scary if she really gets pissed. She in particular was going to kill Watson first if she got Imposter. Her sudden serious demeanor even scared chat, especially with her ominous humming later on.
  • Big Eater: She loves food (especially "surface-dweller" food), and has said that her worst fear is her stomach grumbling in the middle of a stream. Which it has, several times in fact. Interestingly later streams suggest while she's obsessed with food, she doesn't actually eat that much a time. She once mentioned that two average-sized hamburgers and one medium fries from McDonald's was enough food to last her three to four meals, and she often doesn't finish the burger in one sitting, to the point that she is extremely familiar with what she considers to be the best method of reheating a McDonald's hamburger that's been in the fridge overnight.
  • Big Sister Instinct: On the receiving end. Because of her short stature and general cuteness, she manages to induce this in several Japanese senpais despite the language barrier. Matsuri in particular outright says she wants to protect Gura.
  • Big, Stupid Doodoo-Head: Because she doesn't swear all that often, her insults tend to be this; if the Minecraft streams are anything to go by, her default insults are "loser" and "stinky".
  • Bilingual Bonus:
    • While singing "Fly Me to the Moon", Gura ad-libbed "In other words, please be true / In other words...aishiteru." In addition to rhyming, "aishiteru" is Japanese for "I love you", the original lyrics.
    • During her first solo Phasmophobia stream, while reading a superchat and noticing the donor had a Russian username, she thanked them in Russian, having looked up how to in an earlier stream.
    • While not fluent, she knows enough German that she can impress Kiara with how much of it she remembers from having studied it.
  • Book Dumb: Gura is witty and highly creative, with an impressively broad knowledge of various topics, especially when it comes to farming and animals. However, some things regarded as "common knowledge" are unknown to her, her mathematical skills are straight out non-existent, and she occasionally has trouble with reading and writing too.
  • Bowdlerize:
    • Gura self-censors some lewd lyrics during a performance of "The Lazy Song."
      Gura: Tomorrow I'll wake up, do some P90X. Meet a really nice girl, have some really nice... tacos.
    • This was immediately subverted with her follow-up song in the same stream, "Say So" by Doja Cat interlaced with Japanese lyrics. She made it a point to specifically say "Ass and titties" at the end of the rap portion.
  • Bottomless Magazines: In Minecraft, she has a bow called "Amelia Bowson" (a gift from Amelia) which was enchanted to have infinite ammo and does not need reloading with arrows.
  • Breakout Character: Big time, to the point she is considered an unofficial face of the English branch due to this. Of the entire English branch, she was given equal attention compared to the others. She gained particularly huge traction in Japan, setting a record 407k subs in 9 days and breaking the 500,000 barrier in 2 weeks. Within a month, she managed to decimate the subscriber count, being the third most subscribed channel, and a few weeks after that (in the same month), she'd overtaken Korone and Fubuki to become the #1 subscribed Hololive channel. She was also the first Hololive member to reach the milestone of one million subs. Come January 18th, 2021, she would smash the records again and attain two million subscribers (before the other EN girls had even hit one million), and it looks like she hasn't reached her peak either. This video graphs out Hololive subscription rates from 11/2017 to 12/2020. Look at how fast Gura shot to the top in just 3 months.
  • Break the Cutie:
    • Her fascination with playing horror games often leaves her with downer endings that put her in a sad mood.
    • She has lost several pets in Minecraft including one of her cats (Snowball) and her pet parrot. In addition, her favorite bow "Amelia Bowson" ended up despawning after she died.
    • Her playthrough of Papers, Please started off with Gura so chipper and happy and jumping into the game completely blind. Then the bad endings started happening. She went too slow in checking immigrants. She got thrown in jail on her second day, her son died on the November 27th, and she became bitter with a cold indifference towards the characters, with her avatar visibly pouting. At least Calli was giving her support as she was learning.
      Gura: [Reading the chat] Faster? My son's already dead, what's the point?
  • Butt-Monkey: Gura tends to be a frequent victim of tease not only by her genmates but also by her own chat (although she stated she doesn't mind as long as it stays in a light-hearted way), and also is known to be really unlucky when playing videogames, and frequently ends up jinxing herself. Notable moments include:
  • Button Mashing: Related to Graceful in Their Element below. Amelia finds out the hard way in their playthrough of A Way Out that there is no out-mashing Gura. Period.
  • Carnivore Confusion: During Gura and Amelia's visit to the JP Minecraft server, Moona tricked Gura into entering a hot tub before tossing several carrots in, joking that she wanted to turn Gura into shark soup. Later, she was surprised to learn that shark meat is considered a delicacy in Iceland.
    Gura: We're staying out of Iceland for now!
  • Catchphrase:
    • "a". Usually after several Beats and lots of reverb. Overlaps with Running Gag.
    • "Shaaark", usually said in repetition and in a low register. She clarifies in her Maneater stream that she thinks "shark" is a greeting because that's what humans always scream when they first see her.
    • "Hoocha!", which she explains as, an onomatopoeia of choice for any fast, sharp actions. She has also used "Ka-chow!" in similar situations.
    • "Domo, same desu"note  which she frequently uses as her Japanese introduction.
    • "Parkour!" whenever a game requires her to do a running sequence.
    • She also has a slightly whiny "What do you mean!?"
    • She officially adopted the excuse of "You can't be mad at me... I'm cute." in response to the chat disagreeing with her opinions.
  • Character Tic: She often claps whenever she accomplishes something, which the fandom likens to her tail slapping with excitement.
  • Christmas Songs: Gura absolutely loves Christmas, and took the opportunity to show it after Thanksgiving with a beautiful cover of "It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas".
  • Cloudcuckoolander: Upon exchanging personal information with Amelia in order for them to send each other things, Gura sent along a care package that contained a box of decorative vase-filler lemons and a pouch of cookie icing. No explanation was given for either choice of gift.
  • Continue Your Mission, Dammit!: In Luigi's Mansion 3, Gura gets pestered by E. Gadd to continue on with the objective. Both Gura and the chat accused E. Gadd of being a backseat gamer trying to ruin her fun.
  • Cool House: Gura has made several of these in Minecraft: her first one being an underwater cave converted into a home, her second one being a shark hat house made of blue wool located between mountains, and her third one being a gigantic version of the latter being a three floor shark hat house made of blue concrete.
  • Covert Pervert: Perhaps the best at hiding it, but she has her moments of this:
    • Whenever either her or someone else makes an Accidental Innuendo she will let out a very stifled giggle, with her model betraying a cheeky smile.
      Gura: I'll put some seed in Ame's chest. [snickers as she leaves some flower seeds in a Amelia's Minecraft supply chest]
    • She blushed when suggesting wanting to play Twister with the rest of the EN girls at the idea of all their bodies getting tangled together.
    • In Minecraft:
      • She pranks Amelia by adding bigger boobs to the statue Amelia made of herself, insisting on Buxom Is Better.
      • She laughs wholeheartedly when in the process of building scaffolding she accidentally gives the same statue an unfortunately-placed "stick" of dirt.
    • After snapping a picture of ghost evidence during a solo session of Phasmophobia, she mentions uploading it to OnlyFans.
    • When asked to come up with an article of clothing for a Mad Libs style version of "The Night Before Christmas" during a full English branch collab, her last response was "candy G-string" to the shock of everyone else present, even Kiara.
    • During her Luigi's Mansion 3 stream, she invokes the step-sibling porn meme.
      [Watches a ghost maid get stuck halfway in a wall after swallowing a physical suitcase]
      Gura: Step-brother, help!
      [ducking her face off screen while snickering]
      Gura: You guys didn't hear that, right?
    • She takes a short break during Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA Mega Mix to enter the shop and just spend a minute enjoying the Jiggle Physics while showcasing Meiko in a swimsuit.
      Gura: Okay, you can open your eyes now. Youtube, you didn't see anything.
  • Crippling Overspecialization: As far as videogames go, Gura excels at rhythm games, while other games cause a lot more difficulty for her. This caused her particular frustration during her Maneater stream. This has lessened as time went on and she became more accustomed with other genres.
  • Cute, but Cacophonic: Gura is tiny and adorable. She's also capable of letting out some truly impressive shrieks whenever she's caught off guard, being not only loud but wildly high pitched as well. Unlike Haachama's infamous scream, Gura's scream is close to a pure tone, making it unironically pleasant to listen to — The chat often takes it as a blessing to hear.
  • Cuteness Proximity:
    • Gura often elicits this response from others, be it her fans and viewers, or her fellow idols, who all dote on her for how cute she is.
    • Gura herself has this towards some cats she finds in Minecraft. Gushing over the cat gaining love hearts towards her, the cat having kittens, and finally the cat lying on its side on her bed.
  • Deep South: It's very subtle, but there are certain words when Gura's accent seems to hold traces of a country accent. This makes sense with her hinting at her growing up as a Farm Girl.
  • Deliberately Cute Child:
    • When the chat calls her out for loading before her last death in Minecraft, she decides to turn on the charm:
      Gura: [Laughing] What? I wasn't — I didn't cheat, I only did a little bit of cheating! If I — even if I did cheat, what would you say? [Very preciously] You can't be mad at me... I'm cute.
    • She can play up the UwU cuteness at will.
      Gura: Papers, please! I mean.. ehem... Hewwo! Papars Pwease! :3
  • Did I Mention It's Christmas?: "It's officially Christmas!"
  • The Ditz: Gura can be quite airheaded at times.
    • In mathematics:
      • Many streams show her struggling with simple arithmetic, which almost always occurs in Minecraft. These include: calculating that 2020 - 2011 = 10note , Thinking 9 + 10 = 11, chat trying to teach her to plant trees in a "2 by 2" formation where she instead does "2 x 4" then "2 x 5" and finally "2 x 1", confidently declaring that 5 x 5 = 35, and that anything divided by 0 = 0.
      • Bewilderingly averted in her stream of Luigi's Mansion 3, where she manages to correctly recall the Pythagorean Theorem.
        Gura: Shapes are hard, man. Geometry! Pythagorean Theorem! A squared plus B squared is C squared.
    • She at times misreads or misspells words. In her Amnesia play through, she misread "She Will Die" as "she willdee".
    • During her Among Us sessions, she will acknowledge this about her with her costume of choice being a sticky note covering the astronaut's face that reads "DUM" and will overlay it on her own forehead.
    • Games that require her to navigate show she has No Sense of Direction along with the fact she gets her lefts and rights confused.
    • At the end of her second unarchived singing stream, she happily announced that it was Saturday...despite time zone displacement making it, at most, a Friday afternoon in Japan, with her stream being live during Thursday in North America.
    • When trying to add a tail to her Shark Hat House, she builds it so that the tail is horizontal like a whale's tail. When chat tries to tell her, she fails to understand what chat means by sharks having a vertical tail until after she's finished it. Upon finally realizing what chat meant, she decides to google herself to check what her tail looks like, then wonders if she's adopted.
    • During one collab with Kiara where she teaches Gura some simple German, Kiara explains that in "Australia", there are grades 1 to 5, and in Germany, there are grades 1 to 6. Gura mishears this as grades "1 2 5" and "1 2 6" and asks where the rest of the grades are. Cue Kiara absolutely losing her shit for a minute.
  • Does Not Like Shoes: While her model does wear shoes, it can be reasonably deduced that Gura streams barefoot at least some of the time. She has stated that she sometimes rests her feet on her PC case, and can produce barefoot squeaking noises whenever she feels like it.
  • Does Not Like Spam: Cheese, which she has admitted freaks her out a little. She later reveals this extends to milk and dairy products in general.
  • Edible Bludgeon: Gura weaponizes her bread to take out a zombie in Minecraft, and while helping Calli find some gold to make gold armor, smacks her a couple times for feeling bad that she didn't earn the right to use armor put away in the community chest.
    Gura: I smack-a you with my baguette.
  • Eat the Dog: She has a pet (non-anthropomorphic) shark named Bloop who wears an emergency rations tin on his head as a hat. Appropriately enough, that's exactly what he is for her.
  • Emotion Suppression: A Discussed Trope that Gura tries to practice while singing. She admits that she can become quite emotional when playing sad or otherwise personal-relating songs, so she tries to think of hot dogs to help her focus. During her performance of "Can't Help Falling In Love", she quickly whispers "hotdog hotdog hotdog" during an interlude to focus, and her performance of Ruth B's "Lost Boy" was preceded by her trying to convince herself that the context of the song was about a hotdog salesman looking to make it big, and she almost started to fall apart right at the end.
  • Evil Feels Good: Whenever she gets the opportunity to play the role of the antagonist in betrayer-type games (such as the Impostor in Among Us) her attitude is one of absolute childlike glee as she proceeds to murder/capture all her friends without much effort.
  • Exact Words: While playing Minecraft on Hardcore mode, Gura did surprisingly well and managed to gather enough resources to build a portal to enter the Nether. She stated she wanted to enter the Nether before the end of the stream, so after gearing up, she entered the portal and found herself inside a gate fully surrounded by dirt. With her goal accomplished, she immediately left.
  • Fangirl: A far more subdued exampled compared to some others (like Kiara's adoration for Pekora) but she has mentioned that Aqua was the one to drag her down the VTuber rabbit hole. When they first met in the JP Minecraft server, Gura immediately went to glomp her senpai (and accidentally killed her as detailed above).
  • Farm Girl: From what she tells about herself, she lived in a farming community; recounting to the chat about her experiences shucking corn, finding grub and dealing with rotting produce (even mentioning that the smell of rotting squash in the autumn reminds her of home). She also shared a saying ("If your corn's not knee-high by July, then you may as well kiss it good-bye") that Mid-Western American commenters affirm to be (basically) a code farmers live by. This may tie in to why she wants to have her own greenhouse some day (detailed in Hidden Depths below).
  • Fish out of Water: Obvious pun aside, Gura often expresses confusion or unfamiliarity with surface world concepts.
  • Freaky Is Cool: Gura's idea of cute is peculiar to say the least.
    • She has mentioned wanting a pet tarantula she saw in a store due to finding it cute.
    • She finds the orc girl she made in her Skyrim stream to be adorable, despite chat having other ideas.
  • Friend to Bugs: In a contrast to the rest of her peers, she doesn't find bugs inherently creepy or gross. In one of her cooking streams, she says that the grub she found when shucking corn look squishy and cozy. She mentions to Kiara she's interested in getting a pet tarantula. During her Amnesia: The Dark Descent stream, she says she doesn't find cockroaches off-putting though she understands the worry of them being potential disease vectors.
  • Fun with Acronyms:
    • During her debut stream she lists one of her likes as PWWIE (pronounced "pwee-ay"): People Watching Without Intent to Eat.
    • During a Fall Guys stream, she attempted to turn her own name into an acronym. After several false starts, she settled on "Giant Underwater Rubber Animal".
  • Fun Size: Compared to her fellow teammates she is tiny, and is actually the second shortest out of the entire hololive lineout note . It stands out even more during EN collabs, as Calli and Kiara are the third and fifth tallest members of Hololive.
  • Furry Reminder:
    • Ame once asked about Gura needing floaties to swim in a pool, with Gura getting annoyed but otherwise not denying it. Most species of shark (save for a handful) are indeed incapable of floating, needing to swim constantly in order to avoid sinking to the ocean floor.
    • She has a beef with dolphins in Minecraft. As the comments point out, this is fairly similar to how sharks and dolphins in real life are natural enemies.
  • Genki Girl: Her energy levels tend to go off the charts when she's allowed to fully immerse herself in the game she's playing. When she streamed The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, she sounded like she was going to bounce off the walls from a sugar rush just because of how much fun she was having. The previous night she was playing Red Dead Redemption 2, and was still chipper and excited despite admitting that she was tired and probably should've gone to bed early.
  • Girlish Pigtails: Has two tiny pigtails under her hat, held by shark hairclips.
  • Going Commando: "Just because [I] go commando doesn't mean that those cheeks are up for grabs, alright?"
  • Good Is Dumb: Out of the English members, Gura is regarded as one of the purest members who goes to great lengths to avoid swearing and usually avoids lewd talk (at most being a Covert Pervert on occasion). However she also tends to be The Ditz with her trouble in doing simple math and reading. As one viewer commented: "Gawr Gura has a heart of gold and a head of bone!"
  • Graceful in Their Element: Holy moly, when she says she's a rhythm gamer, she means it! Gura can play games in general just fine, but in games like MuseDash, she routinely performs full clears at the highest difficulties and frets at missing even a single note.
  • Growling Gut: In her debut stream, she stated that her greatest fear was her stomach rumbling loud enough to be heard during a stream. And it's not an unfounded fear, as it's happened several times since.
    Gura: [grumble] ...oh, sorry, stomach. Please don't clip that?
  • Hair Color Dissonance: Her hair is mostly a silvery white, but she has a few strands in her bangs that are various shades of blue.
  • Harmful to Minors: She's very distressed during a moment in Maneater when Scaly Pete pulls a shark pup out of their mother's dying body.
  • Height Angst: As one of the shortest members of Hololive and by far the shortest in the EN branch, Gura is constantly on the receiving end of jokes about her height, which is one of the few things that riles her up.
  • Hidden Buxom: Discussed and Defied Trope.
  • Hidden Depths:
    • She has shown consistently a strong emotional maturity, being very in touch with what she feels and being able to describe it in a concrete manner. She also seems to be very thoughtful of her friends, thinking about what they like.
    • She admits that she can be very emotional when singing. She has been seen to stop singing a song because she starts tearing up. It's to the point she'll say something completely random before singing to keep herself from crying. She once expressed her belief in music as an universal language and reasoned this was one way she could connect with her Japanese senpais despite the language barrier.
    • She has a notable love for gardening, mentioning in passing plants she loves growing and things she wants to grow. One of her dreams is to have her own greenhouse where she can keep all the plants she wants to grow.
    • She shows an aptitude for learning new languages, as she is a quick learner during her Japanese lesson with Kiara, and even manages to pronounce some words that Kiara admits to having trouble with herself. She also remembers how to say "thank you" in Russian during one stream off the top of her head, despite having looked it up days earlier, with several Russian fans noting her pronunciation was excellent, and several Russian fans noted that her pronunciation of several other Russian words was very good, despite her just saying what few words she had heard of.
  • Humble Hero: Gura is not the type to brag about her accomplishments, and during milestone celebrations, she always goes out of her way to credit her senpais and her fans for everything she feels they've done to make it possible, making said celebrations as much about them as it is about her.
  • The Hunter Becomes the Hunted: Despite her repeated assertions of being an Apex Predator, a fair number of the games she plays are Survival Horror games where she is the prey. Also, any instances of Carnivore Confusion involving her have involved the topic of sharks as food.
  • Indy Ploy: Gura argues with the Mustache Girl in A Hat in Time about this.
    Mustache Girl: All good strategies need a plan, or else it'll flop!
    Gura: Well I like winging things, but get where you're coming from.
  • In-Series Nickname: Several senpais in the Japanese branch frequently call her Same-chan (Shark-chan). When speaking Japanese, even Gura eventually adopted this and refers to herself by this name.
  • Instantly Proven Wrong: She has a tendency to jinx/death flag herself and others. At first it only manifested in horror games, assailing her as soon as she commented things would be fine. Then it got Kiara killed by way of falling off a high half-constructed bridge as soon as Gura said "she's got this". Comparisons have been made to Pat and his [Crazy Talk] "stand", even if it's yet to reach the same extents.
  • It Is Pronounced "Tro-PAY": On occasion Gura doesn't even pronounce her own name consistently. It was usually pronounced "Gula" during the first few months of streaming, but there were times when she's said "Goora". She finally elaborates that the former is the correct pronounciation, but she will accept anyone using the latter too. From December 2020 onward, she's slipped comfortably into pronouncing the R sound and hasn't brought it up ever since.
  • Kindhearted Cat Lover: Gura affirms she loves cats and will be overcome with Cuteness Proximity and Squee! at the sight of them. In Minecraft she went to a lot of trouble to find herself a cat to have in her house, before adding more and more cats to her abode. She very likely has taken care of a number of cats during her time working in an animal shelter.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: In this video while playing Minecraft, she planned on wanting to prank Amelia by shooting arrows at her from behind, only for a Creeper to pop up behind her and blow her up.
  • Lethal Chef: Downplayed. She mentions in her Valentines Cake Bake stream that the chat pointed out that both her previous attempts at making cookies and meatloaf were "less than sanitary" note . She makes no effort to deny it.
  • Let's Meet the Meat: She admits that Bloop is "emergency rations". Calliope's mortified that she has plans to eat it.
  • Little Bit Beastly: There's her shark-like teeth, for one, and her tail is confirmed by her to be a part of her. She has also mentioned having gills, located on her ribcage.
  • Little Miss Snarker: The smallest member of the group as well as the most quick-witted when making fun of her chat or responding in kind when they become unruly and make fun of her.
  • Love Confession: During her [2MILLION PARTY], she sang various songs from her other Hololive friends, including Kiara's "Hinotori", Calli's "Live Again", and Suisei's "NEXT COLOR PLANET". She would often shout "I love you!" to her friends and sempais during interludes.
  • Lovely Angels: She and Amelia are the closest out of all the girls and collab with each other even moreso than Kiara and Calli, with the two of them very efficient in kicking ass together in co-op.
  • Mobile Fishbowl: Bloop floats around inside a water bubble.
  • Multicolored Hair: White, but with a few strands here and there on her upper and lower bangs being various shades of blue.
  • Naked People Are Funny: When explaining the incident with her chat about the time her avatar loaded in naked during a test run a couple of days before Holomyth's debut, Gura admitted it was funny and she and her fellow Holomyth partners had a good laugh over it, and Gura even took screencaps to remember.
  • Nice Hat: Her shark hat, naturally.
  • Noodle Incident:
    • During their first collab, she quizzed her fellow members on what Bloop is, with the choices being her pet, a ration, or The Bloop. It's implied that not only does she know what the Bloop was, but that Bloop somehow caused it.
    • When asked about the bite mark and scratches on her tail, she states the scratches had something to do with falling into a ravine, but the bite marks has slipped her memory.
    • Amelia mentions in her New Year stream an incident of "seeing Gura naked". This would later be confirmed by Kiara along with Gura herself who explained that Gura's avatar bugged out and didn't render her clothes while the EN team was testing them before their debut.
  • Not a Morning Person: When Gura started her final stream of Luigi's Mansion 3, it was apparently obvious that she had just woken up. She had low energy and a subdued and lower pitched voice than usual. It took her about a half hour of playing and getting into combat with ghosts that she started to wake up into her usual peppy self.
  • No Pronunciation Guide: The "r" in "Gawr" is supposed to be silent, meaning it is pronounced like "Gau" (like the word "ow" with a hard g in front of it), not "Gar". In her first few months, she would often pronounces it as "Goo". Right around the point of celebrating her 2 million subscribers, she has comfortably slipped into consistently pronouncing her name as "Gar Goora."
  • No Sense of Direction:
    • During her playthrough of Dark Deception, she doesn't show any issues navigating the maze, but she consistently turns right when she calls "left" and turns left when she calls "right".
    • Minecraft is, of course, no exception either, as one might expect:
      • The first Minecraft stream featuring all five members of HoloMyth had Gura task the other four members to tunnel underground from the inland where everyone else established their homes to the shore where Gura has her home. Twenty minutes into the girls digging the tunnel, Amelia (who went above ground to double check they are digging the right way) tells Gura she can't find the shore. It turns out Gura instructed them to tunnel along the Z-axis when they had to go along the X-axis the entire time.
      • Also in the first stream featuring all five HoloMyth members, the gang ran into a skeleton spawner, and she and Ina were forced to barricade themselves in a tiny cave. When Ina suggested digging directly to it to disable it, Gura dug in the wrong direction so much, including digging and rebuilding the same wall in the wrong direction a couple times, that she only was able to escape after noticing Ina had dug straight to the spawner, disabled it, and killed the skeletons due to Gura taking too long. She also nearly got Kiara killed because she forgot Ina had just built a wall in the direction of a bottomless pit to keep them from getting shot at.
      • In her second solo Minecraft stream, her refusal to use coordinates until she got lost far away from her home got her killed, resulting in her losing all of her items. Needless to say, she was very irritated and miserable.
        Amelia: ARE YOU OK?
        Gura: N O
        Amelia: Do you need help? I can go with you. Are you lost?
        Gura: "I'm cold, wet, and hungruy."
      • During their tour of the Japanese server, Amelia warned Moona that they would need to keep a tight leash on Gura or she would get hopelessly lost. Sure enough, Gura got distracted and wandered off a few times.
  • Oh My Gods!: Gura has occasionally sworn by Poseidon/Neptune.
  • Older Than They Look: While her short stature and immature attitude can make her mistakenly seem like a kid, her age is actually somewhere in the 9000's, with her struggling to remember the last three digits since it gets hazy once you pass 5000 years.
  • Once Done, Never Forgotten:
    • One solo Minecraft stream went so poorly for her that the only progress she made in three hours was building a small wheat farm and putting a door on her house. Needless to say, in subsequent streams the chatroom will teasingly ask her if she's going to build another door, which yields Never Heard That One Before reactions from Gura.
    • Ever since several members of Holo EN mentioned the naked Gura incident, it seems to have become customary to bring it up again any time the topic of Gura being Hidden Buxom comes up as a quick but decisive confirmation/reminder that no, she is not.
  • OOC Is Serious Business:
    • Possibly exaggerated for entertainment, but during the HoloJP/IN/EN collab of Among Us, Gura becomes notably more quiet and far more passive aggressive, with her tone becoming notably mad after being the Butt-Monkey way too many times during the stream. A particular notable incident is after getting falsely ejected in the last round she does not say anything at all, humming to her BGM in a very hushed but clearly mad tone.
    • While at times prone to Tranquil Fury or sassy retaliation, Gura actually snapped at her chat during her New Year stream when they started insinuating she was drunknote , which she adamantly denied, and stated she would ban anyone who brought that up again. The next stream she ended up backpedaling on what she said and explained she wasn't actually angry and was feeling a bit tipsy from the champagne.
    • In her Luigi's Mansion 3 playthrough, she runs into a Wolf Pack Boss made up of dancing ghost Mooks in tracksuits. The very first thing they do in their opening cutscene is dab, which makes Gura cringe so hard that she drops her character completely and repeatedly say "Oh god..." before stumbling on an excuse to get away from her screen for a bit.
  • Orphaned Punchline: During her Valentines Cake Bake, Gura pranked the chat by making them think she was experiencing technical difficulties where her mic muted mid-sentence and her avatar froze on the screen for about 2 minutes. She was away from the screen taking her cake out of the microwave, but came back pretending she'd been talking the whole time.
    Gura: And that is how babies are made!
  • Overly Long Gag: In one stream of Luigi's Mansion 3, she enters a level that's full of sand, and felt the urge to clean it all up. Surely enough, that's what she does, and it's just twenty minutes of mostly silence from her while Luigi's just vacuuming up all the sand. Gura's avatar started showing signs of drowziness throughout all this, coupled with her mentioning she didn't feel too well, led chat to start getting concerned about her.
  • Petite Pride:
    • Quoth she, she's not flat, she's "hydrodynamic" note . And unlike Ina, she's (usually) less upset or insulted by people bringing it up, and more annoyed that people feel the need to keep bringing it up.
    • She also isn't above making flat jokes about herself, such as when she was playing a game and encountered a chair that was shaking due to collision physics and exlaimed "This chair has more boing than I do!", or when she was bouncing on a trampoline in another game and exlaimed "The closest I'll ever get to boing boing".
    • She has fun with this while playing Ring Fit Adventure, eagerly participating in an activity that worked her abs and core.
      Gura: If I'm going to be flat as a cutting board, then I'm going be... a cutting board with abs!
  • Phrase Catcher: "Yes Chef!"note 
  • The Prankster: A few of her Minecraft streams are dedicated to pranking her fellow Hololive members.
    • She proceeds to prank Amelia by adding giant boobs to Amelia's statue of herself, as well as adding a tennis ball to her giant magnifying glass due to the joke of everyone calling it a tennis racket. Ina even assists by coloring the tennis ball to green.
    • She also pranks Kiara and Haachama by throwing lots of chicken eggs in their KFP restaurant and home respectively. With Haachama it backfires, with Haachama thinking the chickens are cute, thanking Gura for the present and even leaving some diamonds for Gura as a thank you gift.
    • One of her favorite pranks is to snipe one of her friends with her bow so that they fall off a ledge, with varying results. When attempted on Amelia it backfires with Gura getting herself killed. She also does this to Calli during an EN collab, who demands to know the culprit. She succeeds in doing this to Ina who proceeds to angrily chase after her, leading to Gura escaping in a minecart. Ina retaliates by turning the inside of Gura's house to winter.
    • All of the idols have their own building areas connected by one long minecart. During her 1/27 stream, while nearing the end of the minecart path, Gura noticed "The Mines of Mori" and jumped out to look around. Without saying a word, she runs up to a storage box and just steals a crimson door that Calli stashed inside before going along her way. The chat noticed.
      Chat: T H I E F
    • At the start of a Minecraft collab with Calli, she tricks Calli into thinking it's possible to milk a horse in the game. She almost had her believing it.
  • Pre-Mortem One-Liner: Gura says one right before killing Vincent during her A Way Out collab with Amelia.
    Gura: Hasta la vista, rat man.
  • Precision F-Strike: Gura tries not to swear in general, but a few times she has let one off after being very frustrated.
    • Near the end of a Minecraft stream that ended up being long, stressful, and heartbreaking note  she hit a breaking point when, after stating that she was finally safe at home, she ran into the middle of a Pillager raid. Cue desk-slapping and a thoroughly frustrated (and completely understandable) "Are you fucking kidding me?!"
    • In her Outlast Whistlerblower stream, after going through jumpscare after jumpscare to get to a radio, Jeremy Blaire smashes it and ruins her hardwork, to which she mutters "fuck you Blaire".
  • Prongs of Poseidon: One of her few characteristics that isn't shark-related is the fact she's carrying a trident with her, which she calls a very big fork. She's an Atlantean, after all.
  • Rage Quit: During a speedrun practice session of Minecraft, Gura was careful enough to make it into the Nether, find a fortress, and build a bridge across lava to get there. Upon reaching the fortress, she set up a small structure to keep herself hidden from possible dangers while she organized her inventory and items. Next thing she knows, she's being attacked by a Blaze and falls to her death. She had to mute the mic to let out her frustration, and while the mic was on, the audience clearly heard her banging the desk and decided to call it there. She also mocks the chat.
    Chat: -100000 HP Desk-kun.
    Gura: "What's that, Gura? What's that you say, Gura? What is this, do we have clips of you saying, Gura, that you never- you never-ever get mad at games, Gura? Oh no... You know, Gura, I do think you get mad at games." I'm not giving up, I just... I would like to go calm down in a very nice hot bath. That's all I want to say.
  • Rant-Inducing Slight: From one of her Minecraft streams, she shows she doesn't take overly laconic answers too well.
    Gura: ...who just said "k"? I'm gonna go off on that entire little tangent and all you can tell me is "k"? Do you text people like that? Are you one of those people, you pour your heart out, heart and soul out to someone and all you type back is "k"? You ask him something, you're in a really bad predicament, you really need a lift and you're panicking, it's raining, you have no umbrella and all he texts you back is "k"? You're worried about someone, so you take a long time outta your day, and you're worried sick about them and you're constantly asking them "are you okay? Are you okay?" and all they can respond back to you three hours later is "k"? "K"!?
  • Reality-Breaking Paradox: While playing Superliminal, She takes the act of distorting reality by creating a paradox in stride. It's possible such ramifications are beyond her.
    Gura: Guys, I think we broke it.
  • Real Event, Fictional Cause: She has implied that Bloop caused The Bloop.
  • Really 700 Years Old: During her debut stream she puts her age as 9927 years old, but admits that she's not entirely sure and claims that things get kind of hazy once you pass 5000, resulting in the last three digits of her age changing every time it's mentioned.
  • "The Reason You Suck" Speech: After several months of enduring jokes from chat making fun of her height and breast size, Gura has started retaliating with these. She calmly but sternly tells those who leave superchats that just because they gave her money that doesn't make insulting her an acceptable action.
  • Scary Teeth: She has a visible upper row of pointed shark teeth.
  • Self-Deprecation:
    • She tends to joke about how bad she is at games when she is playing them, partially due to her own unfamiliarity with it, but also because she is aware that her chat often knows what she lacks.
    • After months of chat making short jokes about her, Gura took the initiative to make them at her own expense.
    • She makes no attempt to deny her ditziness, often admitting "my brain is very small" to get her chat to be patient with her.
  • Shaped Like Itself: What type of shark is Gura? She's a Gura-shark. Bloop is a shark-shark.
  • Ship Tease: With Amelia. After months of fans shipping the two of them together, Amelia finally set the shippers ablaze by calling Gura "[her] wife" on Twitter. Then for Amelia's birthday, among her presents Gura had gifted her a box of synthetic lemons to which Gura replies by saying "those lemons will last forever, like my love for you".
  • Shrinking Violet: Downplayed example, but both Gura herself as well as the other HoloEN members have mentioned that Gura can feel nervous around new people, hence why she is the HoloEN member who has the least amount of collabs with members from other generations by far. In fact, it took her almost six months from her debut before she had a proper one-on-one collab with a member from another generation (an off-stream Dead by Daylight session with Anya in late February 2021).
  • Signature Laugh: While her normal "Guhahaha!" laugh is slightly notable, in one stream she broke the fourth wall and admitted that she'd considered giving her character a distinctive Pekora-like laugh. The only thing she could come up with was "Sha-ha-ha-hark!", which she found so cringeworthy that she was embarrassed to even acknowledge it; that said, for the rest of the stream she used it in a sarcastic fashion, usually responding to worn-out jokes like mentions of floaties.
  • Significant Birth Date: June 20th is the day Jaws was released, which she herself pointed out in her debut stream. She also mentions that it isn't her actual birthday, but she's forgotten when her actual birthday is, so she decided to choose that day to celebrate her birthday.
  • Single-Issue Wonk: She goes off on a tangent about people who respond to long and heartfelt messages with a single terse "k."
  • So Proud of You:
    • Gura was on the receiving end from her chat after her Minecraft Hardcore stream where she made it through 3 hours without dying and even successfully made an enchanting table. Chat recalled during her first Minecraft stream it took her 3 hours to put a single door on her house, being proud of how far Gura had come in this time.
    • Was also on the recieving end during her Japanese lesson with Kiara, with the latter repeatedly praising her for being a quick learner and for how much she already knew, saying that she was "so proud of [her] student".
  • Speaks Fluent Animal: Her profile notes that she enjoys talking to marine life.
  • Species Surname: Possibly. When asked what type of shark she is, she says she is a Gura shark. Considering that she has heavily implied that she considers herself to be a shark, rather than a mermaid with shark traits, it could very well be the real name for her species.
  • Speech Impediment: During a stream of Luigi's Mansion 3, Gura brought attention to a lisp she has. She has slight difficulty saying S sounds. She blames the gaps in her pointed shark teeth.
  • Squee!: She makes a particularly adorable one when she found out that Bandai Namco America was watching her stream of Taiko no Tatsujin. Even with the creators themselves watching, she still couldn't get away with playing any copyrighted songs though.
  • Survival Mantra: Gura occasionally sings the chorus to Shiny Smily Story to reassure herself. Whether she is playing horror games, exercising, or even baking.
  • Take Our Word for It: When asked why Bloop resides inside a bubble, she simply said that it was for her audience's safety and left it at that. Seeing as how huke draws a freed Bloop like this, it might be best to take her word for it.
  • Tempting Fate:
    • It seems whenever Gura says "What're you gonna do" to an opponent, her opponent proceeds to demonstrate, as seen in her TABS playthroughs.
      Gura: That's right, what're you gonna do bro?
    • Gura's Outlast stream was full of these moments
      Gura: Run for it? Nah, we're fine.
      Jump Scare happens, Gura shrieks
    • During the first all-member HoloMyth collab Minecraft stream, Kiara is making a bridge and falls to her death the second Gura says "she(Kiara)'s got this".
    • She has two in a solo Minecraft stream:
      • While exploring a mineshaft she declares "So long as I don't get backed into the corner, we should be fine!"; about a minute later she gets backed into a corner and killed, losing a lot of resources in the process.
      • Then later on she declares that she won't die because she's in the safety of...but she can't even finish her sentence before she runs headlong into a Pillager raid, prompting a rare F-bomb.
    • It happens constantly during her Dark Deception stream to the point Gura lampshaded it.
      Gura: We're fine. It's fine. I got this. Gur-Gura has got this- [dies] ...I need to shuuuut my mooouth! Why am I so cursed?
    • During the fifth/final round of the Among Us collab between the 5th Gen and EN, Gura spent quite a long time completing tasks and exploring as a Crewmate. Since she can't find any dead body to report, she shouts "Somebody kill someone!". A few seconds later, she meets Watson in a hallway and gets promptly killed by her.
    • During EN's first Left 4 Dead 2 stream, the team are on top of a raised scaffold defending against a horde of zombies when a Charger arrives. Gura scoffs at it saying "He can't climb", only for said Charger to tackle her off the platform not a few seconds later.
    • During the 9 Nov 2020 HoloJP/IN/EN Among Us Collab's 5th game she confidently declared "We're gonna win!" on her way to her last task with only a sliver of the task bar left. Seconds later the doors are sabotaged trapping her with Sociopath Suisei and Always-Imposter Amelia. Suisei even sadistically toys with her as she flails helplessly against the door before killing her just as it opens.
    • While playing Minecraft on December 11th, 2020, she went down into the Nether to mine some materials, while confidently saying she wasn't going to die. She died, and mocked herself by repeating "I'm not gonna die I'm not gonna die" in a mocking tone.
    • During the second stage of the Johnny Deepend boss fight in her Luigi's Mansion 3 playthrough, Gura claimed that she will end the stream if Luigi runs out of HP. Not one second later, she's hit by a stray ground pound attack, killing Luigi while Gura herself hasn't even finished her sentence. She immediately attempted to backpedal on her words.
  • That Came Out Wrong: While playing A Hat in Time, Gura meets the Cooking Cat, who wants to trade out the Mafia's bad cooking for her own edible stuff. Gura picks up a bucket of crabs afterward.
    Gura: Let's go give the Mafia some crabs!
    Chat: GURA, NO!
    Chat: PHRASING!
  • Third-Person Person: While she usually talks normally, she occasionally refers to herself in third person.
  • Token Mini-Moe: Played with. While Gura is not the youngest member (for both characternote  and real life), she often gets treated as The Baby of the Bunch due to her small stature and naivety. She is often jokingly considered the 'baby shark' of the EN team.
  • To Serve Man:
    • Averted; she thinks humans taste terrible (though obviously that implies that she at least tried some time in the past). This is also a case of Truth in Television, as experts believe that sharks don't really like the taste of human - most shark attacks have the shark deliver a savage bite, but rarely actually eat. As far as mammals go, sharks tend to eat seals and whales/dolphins, which have thick fat layers to stay warm underwater.
    • Although on the other hand, when Amelia claimed that "detectives don't taste very well" during her and Gura's visit to the Japanese Minecraft server, Gura responded with "I beg to differ, I beg to differ", although it's possible she was joking since this happened right after Moona had joked that she wanted to make shark soup out of Gura.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Initially appeared to be salmon, but later on pizza appears to be her favored pick. Gura frequently brings pizza up in streams, where she once stated "pizza is pizza, if it's pizza [she'll] eat it". She also once said that she dropped her pizza in the bath, then picked it back out and ate it, defiant towards chat that this wasn't weird at all.
  • Tranquil Fury:
    • In the HoloJP/IN/EN collab of Among Us, after never being an imposter, being killed in every round (including being the first one to die in three rounds out of seven and getting ejected twice despite being right about who the imposter is) and finally her crewmates losing.
      Gura: So, everyone. How do we feel now? Not listening to Gura, huh? Not listening to Gura? That's alright. That's fine. Gura will remember this!
    In addition, her first tweet after the game is just a very passive-aggressive "OK."
  • Verbal Tic:
    • Her signature "a". She even calls it a tic.
    • "oh boy" when she needs to brace herself for something.
    • While playing Minecraft, she loves going "pom pom pom!" while placing objects, jumping up on blocks, and just engaging with the game in general.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: With Amelia, on occasion. While the two are great friends, they simply cannot resist the urge to prank each other repeatedly or talk smack at the first chance - such as when Gura decided to build gigantic boobs on Amelia's statue in Minecraft, and inadvertently created an... ill-placed platform to view her tweaks to the statue.
  • Wardrobe Malfunction: Amelia recalled a moment prior to EN's debuts, where during testing of their avatars, Gura loaded in naked.note  Gura later confirmed that not only is the story true, they took screenshots of the incident.
    Gura: If we reach ten million subscribers... No, I'm joking!
  • Weapon of Choice: In Minecraft her trademark weapon was a special bow named "Amelia Bowson" which was a gift from Amelia, enchanted to have infinite ammo and Gura's favorite weapon. Unfortunately in a collab with Calli Gura ended up dying and the bow despawned before she could retrieve it.
  • You Monster!: Played for laughs. She is on the receiving end from chat during her second Luigi's Mansion 3 stream, where Gura chooses to capture Morty the Director Ghost, who is a benign passive ghost who never poses any threat to the player, who has been nothing but nice in his appearances, and is not needed to be captured for progression. Chat responds with remarks such as "Bad shark" to which Gura laughs off that the temptation was too big.
  • Your Other Left:
    • She's really bad at telling her rights from her lefts, usually calling out the wrong direction or clicking the wrong button. It took her Minecraft chat nearly two minutes to explain that left click would punch a horse while right click would tame it before she understood...and then immediately punched the horse by mistake.
    • During her collaboration with Amelia for A Way Out, she got confused on what the prompt "LMB" was. When Amelia informed her that it stood for "left mouse button," she was still confused.
      Gura: Oh, got it... which button is the left one?

"Amelia heard strange rumors surrounding Hololive online: talking foxes, magical squirrels, superhuman dogs, and more. Soon after beginning her investigation on Hololive, and just out of interest, she decided to become an idol herself! She loves to pass her time training her reflexes with FPS games, and challenging herself with puzzle games. It's elementary, right?"

Debut date: September 13th, 2020
Birthday: January 6th
Height: 150 cm
Fanbase name: Tea-Mates
Illustrator: Nabi

  • Abnormal Limb Rotation Range: Doubles as a Major Injury Underreaction. During Hololive EN's second full-team livestream, a.k.a the origin of the infamous "Bottom Left" meme, Amelia's character model got glitched several times throughout the whole thing, causing her left arm from the elbow down to swivel in a weird direction. While the others and the chat were quick to notice, Amelia herself was rather blasé about it.
    Amelia: [indifferently] My arm broke...
  • Aerith and Bob: Compared to her other HoloMyth costars, she has the most natural name for non-Asian audiences.
  • Affectionate Nickname: "Ame", used by Gura. According to her, it's used when Amelia is being cute while Watson is used when she is being a Watson.
  • Ambiguously Bi: While her exact sexuality is not confirmed, she did refer to her HoloMyth costars as her "four girlfriends", and she is a serial flirt towards them. At the same time, when asked if she prefers yuri or yaoi, she replied that she likes both, and later revealed she's read slash fiction starring the Sniper and the Spy from Team Fortress 2. When looking up herself on Akinator, her response to the question "Is your character homosexual?" was "I don't know", although that could have just been her going along with how she assumed others would answer (since Akinator is basically a "20 questions" game that makes guesses based on how people have answered in the past).
  • Animals Hate Him: Ironically enough for a dog owner and lover, she has a history of being bitten by dogs, with one of them seemingly attempting to kill and eat her.
  • Anti-Love Song: Gura Doesn't Know I Exist, a cover of Kristina She Don't Know I Exist by Catch 22
  • Big Breast Pride: While she's not crazy about fanart exaggerating things, she's pretty proud about what she does pack. She once boasted "[Gura] needs floaties. Now, me? I don't need any floaties. I got two big ones." before chuckling smugly. She's also outraged when told there was a rumor she was padding her bra, briefly removing her coat just to disprove it.
  • Bilingual Bonus: During her Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes collab with Kiara, to challenge themselves, they both decide to speak different languages during some rounds. In Ame's case, she speaks a bit of Spanish.
  • Black Comedy Rape: Amelia's impression of "[the chat's] mothers last night": "'No, Amelia, don't ground pound me, please!' Oh, and then she was, like, 'Yes, ground pound me more!' That's what she said."
  • Born Lucky: According to her, she's invested all her "stat points" in luck. Zigzagged by both suffering from various misfortunes and surviving them.
  • Canine Companion: She has 2 hunting terriers named Bubba and Nicki.
  • Canines Primary, Felines Secondary: She also has a cat named Wellington but they aren't loud nor are they associated with Amelia's channel imagery like Bubba.
  • Casual Kink: Her response to the idea of a 3D collab with the rest of holoMyth is for the 3D stream to consist of her gen-mates beating her up, complete with less than convincing attempts to play it off as a joke. When asked about it again later, Amelia said that she could imagine Calliope "beating the shit" out of her, before adding "In the best way possible".
  • Catchphrase:
    • She likes to introduce herself as "I'm Amelia Waaaatson!" (''with the "Waaaa-" accompanied by a wink).
    • "It's the piiiing!", often said whenever she's not performing too well in FPS games, although sometimes it actually is because of lag.
  • Character Tics: She's affected with chronic hiccups, which her fans find really cute.
  • The Chew Toy: A lot of jokes come at the expense of her terrible luck. Aside from her disaster-ridden past, even technology seems to turn on her.
  • Cloud Cuckoolander: She has a penchant for throwing out worrying and/or bizarre comments and anecdotes during quiet moments and Superchat readings, and her attitudes are generally chaotic. She seems especially fond of hitting Gura with weird shit in the chat when she's streaming.
  • Combat Commentator: Whenever she gets eliminated in an FPS match she will take on this role, speaking like a typical e-sports commentator.
  • Competition Freak: Amelia's various multiplayer FPS streams show off her competitive side; e.g., when playing Apex Legends she spends time complaining or mocking her teammates' less than stellar playing and even states by the end, she pretty much did all the work. This sometimes extends outside of FPS games, like getting annoyed and making excuses when losing to Ina in various virtual board games.
  • Cool Big Sis: To Gura. Amelia is her most frequent collab partner and Gura relies on her a lot during Minecraft streams.
  • The Corruptor: An unintentional one.
    • Kiara makes a joke that she smashed Calliope during their first Minecraft collab. Kiara quickly admits she learned it from Amelia to Calliope's nonsurprise.
    • In one of Calliope's solo streams she offhandedly mentions ground-pounding as a mechanic in the game and, knowing that many of her viewers are shared across all of HoloEN, immediately calls her own audience out on making Amelia-related "ground-pound" jokes.
  • Covert Pervert: She tries to hide her perversion at times in her streams (presumably marked "for kids"), but the sheer effort in doing so just makes it clear to those watching.
  • Crippling Overspecialization: In terms of first-person shooters, her constant playing of hero shooters has left her rather unable to adjust to a sizable number of other types. Cue her having some trouble with Halo and Titanfall 2.
  • Cute, but Cacophonic:
    • Amelia's usual voice is pretty normal. However, she has the ability to make noises that can be described as "inhuman," such as when she explains how her Time Machine works. Severe frustration in a game can also bring it out, as she moves from grumbles to the occasional screech and finally assorted gremlin noises. There are even compilations of these gremlin moments showing how common it is.
    • Doubly so for her singing, which is perfectly fine for an amateur when she's in her range, and otherwise can be charitably described as "needing work". Bless her, she tries.
  • D-Cup Distress:
    • A minor case, mostly in regards to fanart of herself. She mentioned that she prefers to be rendered with a more modest bust size as that is the type of figure that she herself prefers.
    • During one Supa Sunday stream, she's mentioned that she's got bad posture because of her big bust, although she stops short of actually saying it.
  • Determinator: Once she's set her heart on a task, failure and frustration will often just encourage her further. It was most apparent when building the PPP in Minecraft or trying to land on the Sun Station in Outer Wilds, where hours of failure failed to deter her.
  • Depending on the Artist:
    • In fanart, Ame's height usually varies between Gura coming up to her breasts to Gura coming up to her chin. In reality, Ame is only 9 cm (3.5 inches) taller than Gura, which brings Gura up to her eyes. Canonically, Ame is 2 cm shorter than Ayame Nakiri, the hololive member known for her short stature, and in fact, as of the debut of hololive Indonesia Gen 2, she shares the spot as eighth shortest member of hololive with Marine and Iofi.note  Lampshaded by Gura, who has described Ame as "surprisingly short".
    • She has also acknowledged how fan art of her tends to show her as being significantly bustier than she actually is.
  • Die, Chair, Die!: She spends her Superliminal playthrough gleefully setting off every fire extinguisher and alarm she comes across.
  • Dissonant Serenity: She once described a friend of hers losing a finger to a shopping cart while playing with her and other kids in a supermarket with an overly cheerful tone, and during her 2020 Thanksgiving stream she followed up a story about how her brother set her family's house on fire and she almost died because she was hiding in the closet with a cheerful "Let me go check on the yams again!".
  • Distracted by the Sexy: Invoked Trope. She puts up Ina's art of her in a swimsuit to distract stream snipers who look at her minimap.
  • Does Not Like Spam: Spicy food. She was devastated when her favorite noodle joint changed the recipe and made their noodles too spicy for her.
  • Don't Call Me "Sir": She assures Anya that she need not be concerned with formalities of addressing her as "Senpai" and says it's fine to just call her "Ame", despite Anya's reluctance due to how disrespectful this is.
  • Drives Like Crazy: If there's one thing her L.A. Noire playthough proves, it's that she should never be allowed behind the wheel of a vehicle, lest she take out every pole she sees on principle, T-bone at least one other car and park her car perpendicular to the entire street (to be fair, L.A. Noire is notorious for having bad driving controls, although that excuse only goes so far).
    Amelia: (singing to the melody of "She's a Maniac") A maniac, a maniac/On the road/She's driving like she's never drived before
  • El Spanish "-o": Amelia's attempt at speaking Spanish when playing Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes with Kiara.
  • Everyone Has Standards:
    • During a Minecraft collab, Kiara said that her mother was watching the stream and asked if Amelia wanted to say anything to her, unintentionally giving the perfect set-up for one of her usual Your Mom jokes note . However, precisely because this was a friend's mother Amelia decided against it, simply complimenting Kiara and saying that "Mrs. Takanashi" should be very proud of her daughter.
    • When working in collabs, she generally will tone down her "toxic gamer" attitude; while it's not as pronounced in working with other EN girls (she will be a bit whiny but not outwardly vitriolic towards them) it is definitely showcased when working with anyone from the Japanese branch. She has stated she views that attitude to be a bit pathetic which is why she refrains from doing it with them, but acts unrestrained in solo streams because her audience is "just as pathetic" as she is.
    • She was also clearly very uncomfortable with the casual 1940s racism in L.A. Noire.
    • When collabing with Ollie, the usually flirtatious Amelia is left taken aback by the even more flirtier Ollie's constant advances.
  • Fantastic Drug: "Watson's Concoction" is an incredibly powerful hallucinogen that she tested out on her audience via injection during her first stream. She refuses to reveal its contents, but fan theories suggest it is related to Hololive Japan's equivalent, Asacoco. She also makes a suspicious statement about snorting powdered bacon
  • Foil: To Marine Houshou. Both are the Team Normal among a generation of supernatural, non-human humanoids, or fantasy themed humans, both display Ambiguously Bi behavior, both have Big Breast Pride, both are primarily paired with a smaller, more flat-chested girl with occasional A-Cup Angst (Gura and Rushia respectively, more prominent in the latter case), and both are well known for lewd behavior.
    • The contrast is both have opposite language barriers, where Marine has trouble speaking and understanding English and actually had no idea what kind of girl Amelia was, while Amelia is the least versed in Japanese out of the EN girls.
    • Also, while Marine is usually agreed to be an actual shameless and self-proclaimed pervert, with Amelia it appears as though she merely has a penchant for making lewd jokes (as part of her "toxic gamer" persona) and has yet to engage in much proper perverted behavior, being outdone by Kiara, the actual pervert of HoloEN.
    • Both are themed with exotic professions, with Marine being a Pirate Girl and Amelia being a detective. However Marine for the most only seems to dress like a pirate, but in reality doesn't have a ship and is just a cosplayer. Amelia on the other hand seems like a normal detective, but is later revealed to be a time traveler.
  • Foreshadowing: Amelia is the only normal human of her generation but was the only one to not have her age listed in her debut stream. That's because she can Time Travel and she doesn't age normally. She also mentions in her debut that the drug she injects the audience with is what she used to offer "Mr. Holmes", revealing that she was around during the time period of the Sherlock Holmes books.
  • Funny Background Event: Bubba has a tendency of very loudly barking during her streams. Amelia will either step away for a moment in order to calm him down or sometimes joins in with a mock bark of her own.
  • Gag Boobs: On the EN Minecraft server, there exists a giant Amelia statue who stands over the minecart tracks. She is modestly proportioned, except for her massive boing-boings that extend outward by 10 blocks.
  • Gamer Chick: Shortly after her debut, Amelia rattled off streams of Valorant and Apex Legends on very little sleep, showcasing her skill at FPS games.
  • Get-Rich-Quick Scheme: She has a penchant for these since she wants money to keep her agency open.
  • Girls with Moustaches: Her Live2D model features an optional mustache. The mustache even appears on her magnifying glass!
  • Have We Met Yet?: Amelia explains that she once met a past version of Gura before she joined hololive via time travel.
  • Hell Is That Noise: Played for laughs. Amelia is capable of emitting a Brown Note-level screeching from right out of the blue that both confuses and amuses her fanbase. It's one of several aspects about herself that inspired the "Gremlin Ame" meme.
  • Hereditary Curse: According to her, Grandma Watson liked messing around with other women's husbands so much that one of the wives placed a curse on the entire Watson family, explaining the bizarre stories and misfortune Amelia experienced growing up.
  • Hidden Buxom: Her coat makes her chest look a considerable deal smaller than it actually is. That said, she also isn't fond of fan artists exaggerating their size.
    Ina: I thought she was one of us - like Gura and me. But Ame, she... she hid her boing-boings!
  • Hidden Depths: Amelia is implied to be a lot more calm and responsible than her usual chaotic behavior would suggest. According to Ina, her first impression on Watson is that "she's someone that she can trust" and later talked about the "calm energy" she radiates.
  • Hilariously Abusive Childhood: Except her parents and other guardians were fine, and it was instead other kids, her own unwise decisions and her terrible luck doing all the abusing, and she got into a variety of accidents and frightening events as a result that she makes light of nowadays. Whenever Amelia utters the words "when I was a kid" to begin a story, it's time to brace for impact.
  • I Do Not Like Green Eggs and Ham: Amelia initially said that she didn't expect to spend much time on holoEN's Minecraft server because wide-open, free-form games aren't really her thing, but after playing with an audience and setting concrete goals for each stream she found herself having a lot of fun and ended up being quite active, including studying up on Redstone and building the server's railway system practically single-handedly.
  • I Need to Go Iron My Dog: Whenever she needs to step away from the stream for any reason such as getting water, snacks, going to the bathroom, etc., she'll usually say she needs to attend an "idol meeting".
  • Irony: She's the one member of the group who isn't some kind of fantasy inspired creature or theme, yet she turns out to be the craziest out of all them in her debut stream.
  • Jack-of-All-Trades: Has the most varied solo content compared to her gen-mates. Along with the usual Q/A, superchat reading, watch-alongs, and karaoke streams, she also has ASMR, cooking, roleplay, drawing, Japanese practice, accent learning, listen-alongs, read-alongs, ukelele streams, and even giving her fans homework for the week to review on stream.
  • Know-Nothing Know-It-All: Played for laughs. Amelia will often perform a Sherlock Scan or offer a insightful sherlockian comment on scientific matters while playing a game, but the information she offers is very rarely accurate or remotely relevant.
  • Language Barrier: Being one of the three hololive members who isn't fluent enough in Japanese to hold a conversationnote  she naturally runs into this trope. Amazingly, she ends up downplaying and defying it. As of February 2021, she has the second most senpai collabs with the JP branchnote  in her generation following Kiara, despite being the worst at Japanese.
  • Last-Name Basis: Zig-zagged; while the other girls fairly consistently called by their first names, Amelia is variously called by either name depending on the situation. Gura has explained that she uses "Ame" when Amelia is being cute, and "Watson" when she's being a Watson.
  • The Last of These Is Not Like the Others: Holomyth members consist of an apprentice to Death, a reincarnating phoenix, a priestess of Eldritch Abominations, a shark more than 9000 years old... and a British PI. Downplayed when she revealed she's also a Time Traveler.
  • Lovely Angels: She and Gura are the closest out of all the girls and collab with each other even moreso than Kiara and Calli, with the two of them very efficient in kicking ass together in co-op.
  • Made of Iron: After her various stories of serious injuries as a child-like splitting her head open, being left in a hot car, chopping off part of her finger, and biting off her tongue, many of her viewers were surprised she survived to adulthood.
  • Morality Pet: As seen with her collabs with Haachama and Roboco, her JP senpais really bring out the best in her whilst suppressing her Competition Freak and Sore Loser tendencies, with Amelia even taking the blame for some losses in APEX with Roboco. Fans liken it to the difference between Haachama and Akai Haato. According to Amelia herself, she doesn't really like to rage in front of other people since she feels like it makes her look pathetic.
  • Motifs: Moustaches and clocks.
  • Mushroom Samba: Her Watson Concoction syringes cause a lot of tripping out and visual effects such as seeing triple and Fish-Eye Lens among other things.
  • Never My Fault: In combination with being a sore loser, she has a laundry list of excuses for why she ends up losing or not doing well in any particular game she ends up playing.
  • Noblewoman's Laugh: Delivers a rare, English-accented Ojou laugh after faking an apology to people who backseated her playthough of Antichamber.
  • Once Done, Never Forgotten: In Minecraft, Amelia constructed a giant magnifying glass outside her house, which immediately got mistaken for a tennis racket by Callinote . The rest of the girls would endlessly tease Ame over this, which eventually led to a series of pranks from Gura adding a tennis ball next to the magnifying glass and Ina assisting in coloring the tennis ball green.
  • Percussive Therapy: Like many others in hololive, Amelia slams her desk when she's especially frustrated. Her desk smashes are very loud in comparison to the likes of Towa and Rushia; fans have likened it to hearing gunshots.
  • The Pollyanna: In her own words "she turned out good", despite the level of seriousness with several incidents as a young child. At two years old she fell in an ice cream store and bit her tongue so badly it was nearly cut in half. As a 3 or 4-year-old Amelia's brother pushed her off the bed while they were jumping on it and she now has a large scar on her head. She cut the tip of her thumb off trying to peel an apple. The final one was being left in a hot car with her brother that got so hot it melted her crayons. And she had the same cheer when telling a similar story later on of how she tried to do spinny tricks off some ropes at Disneyland and faceplanted into the concrete hard enough to get a scar later.
  • Polyamory: When asked by a female fan if she was open to having a girlfriend, she replied that she already has four of them and isn't open to any more.
  • Portmanteau: Her proposed fanbase name of "Amelianaires" (Amelia + "millionaires"). While the chat devised and latched onto the name "Holmies" (Holmes + "homies") instead, it was unusable due to that name being associated with supporting a Spree Killer. Eventually both her and her chat settled in on TeaMates ("Teammates" by way of "tea + "mates.")
  • Pungeon Master: Downplayed, but she can get quite punny when making fun of something, such as declaring herself a "zoomer" by literally zooming around the screen, or when asked about "No Nut November" ends up making it about literal nuts like almonds.
  • Private Detective: Streams from her office with a noir style opening and jazz BGM.
  • Quintessential British Gentleman: Her design matches a few things on the list such as the High-Class Glass, the mustache motif on her belongings, and her following intellectual pursuits like puzzle games and investigating the weirdness in hololive. Taken further in her debut proper with her putting on an exaggerated British accent while talking about her love for a Spot of Tea, blood sausage, and crumpets.
  • Quirky Ukulele: Knows how to play the instrument.
  • The Reliable One: She is HoloMyth's go-to for technical issues.
  • Rollercoaster Mine: One of her biggest Minecraft projects is a minecart system that spans the length of the long tunnel they dug in their first collab. With the assistance of several intermittent powered rails they can quickly speed between the mine entrance and any important branching points.
  • Self-Fanservice: Referenced In-Universe during a Q&A stream where she was asked about the trend of fan-artists giving her larger "boing boings". After several seconds of stammered false starts (since this was supposed to be a family-friendly stream), Ame said that she appreciates all fanart but prefers that the fans portray her with a more accurate physique.
  • Sherlock Homage:
    • This is basically her shtick. She has the deerstalker hat, carries a magnifying glass at all times, and a similar association with drugs. She also shares the same name as Dr. Watson and carries medical equipment with her (a stethoscope and some syringes). Her birthday is also Sherlock Holmes' (unofficial) birthday.
    • During her debut, she revealed she actually knew/knows a "Mr. Holmes", stating that he called her drug cocktail "Watson's Concoction" and it is what she used to give him. Considering the fact that she is a time traveller, she might actually be the Dr. Watson.
  • Ship Tease: With Gura. After months of fans shipping the two of them together, Amelia finally set the shippers ablaze by calling Gura "[her] wife" on Twitter. Then for Amelia's birthday, among her presents Gura had gifted her a box of synthetic lemons to which Gura replies by saying "those lemons will last forever, like my love for you".
  • Signature Laugh: Her regular laughter is not especially notable, but the gremlin cackle she deploys whenever she's told an acknowledgedly immature/toxic joke is.
    Amelia: NEHEHEHEHE!
  • Sleep Deprivation: By the time of her debut stream, she had already stayed up for 20 hours and then was sighted in the chat of several streams afterwards. She later tweeted that she had too much caffeine and doesn't remember her stream. During her Valorant stream the next day, she cheerfully mentions getting 2 1/2 hours of sleep. She finally admits to getting eleven hours of sleep here.
  • Sleeps in the Nude: One of her dislikes is wearing clothes when going to sleep.
  • Soundtrack Dissonance: Every stream starts with her greeting chat to a jazzy piano BGM which she loops during her FPS streams. No matter if she's complaining about her team, fragging enemies, winning or losing games, expect the same relaxing piano piece playing in the back, with her sometimes humming along with it. However, she is ready to turn off the BGM when she is in a tense situation such as being in the final few remaining teams in APEX.
  • Speech Impediment: A very mild lisp when talking. While she hasn't remarked directly on it, fans believe a childhood incident she explained in which she nearly bit her tongue off is to blame.
  • Spot of Tea: Subverted. Tea is a regular topic in her streams and she does enjoy making her own but her drink of choice is actually water.
  • Sore Loser: Tends to make excuses or flame her teams when she loses. She has mentioned that watching fan clips of herself raging made her feel bad about being so toxic and was not proud of those moments.
  • Stable Time Loop: Once claimed to have time traveled to the past and told the Gura of that time period that the latter would be in hololive one day.
    Amelia: I told her all about it. And she's been waiting. She's been waiting! For so long! But for me, it was just the other day. [reading chat] "Why'd you spoil her?" Maybe it was like a Catch-22 sort of thing. How do you use that phrase? What came first, the chicken or the egg? What if I never told Gura? What if I never time traveled and never told her? Maybe she wouldn't be in EN! Which came first?! The loop! Time is confusing...
  • The Stinger: A running gag is for her to say goodbye to everyone but leave the stream on for a few more minutes and say something silly at the very last moment before cutting off the broadcast for good.
  • Stop Helping Me!: While she is appreciative of her audience's advice when streaming games she knows little about such as Minecraft, she has commented that she finds it annoying when they tell her basic things about playing or controls, noting that such comments are made as the result of building up good habits over time that a new player understandably would not have but develop over time and that telling them they are doing something wrong is more of a deterrent that would make her more prone to ignoring audience input altogether.
  • The Straight Man: Subverted. When Hololive EN was first announced, many people expected Amelia to be either this or the Only Sane Woman for the generation due to being the most normal looking out of the five. Obviously, this expectation got quickly proven wrong as soon as she debuted.
  • Super Speed: She declares herself a “zoomer” and proceeds to demonstrate by zooming at high speeds around her stream room.
  • Team Mom: During group Minecraft streams, Amelia can be counted on to look after her team and supply the others with what they need.
  • Time Travel: While appearing to be an ordinary detective at first, Amelia reveals that she is a time traveler. During her first Fall Guys stream, Amelia claims the watch she wears is a time-traveling device, to explain away why she knows what Mighty Beanz are.
  • Token Human: Downplayed. Everyone in the group is humanoid, but Amelia is the only one who isn't themed after a supernatural/non-human entity.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Donuts. She ordered some to eat on a Supa Sunday stream, and got excited when they were mentioned in the Knives Out watchalong in an analogy. The Stinger for that watchalong had her recite the same analogy while a donut shaped overlay was placed over her.
  • Tranquil Fury: Her getting frustrated or angry at a game tends to end in screeching, Desk-kun abuse and swearing. Her getting legitimately angry at someone seems to be a different story entirely, as seen with one question in a Q&A stream that took an entitled tone:
    Amelia: First of all, you watch your goddamn tone when you're talking to me.
  • Unit Confusion: In her debut, claimed to be 150 cm, or 5-foot-9-inches (what she called freedom units). 150cm is 4-foot-11-inches.
  • Verbal Tic: She frequently experiences what she calls "reverse-burps" involuntarily, resulting in her releasing random chirps and hiccups during streams. These "hics" are well received by the fans when they occur.
  • What Did I Do Last Night?: Has absolutely no recollection of her debut stream due to being completely wired on caffeine as well as sleep-deprived for roughly 24 hours. She even had to clarify that she was being serious on her Twitter account due to people explaining the nature of what actually happened during that debut.
  • Yaoi Fangirl: Has admitted to reading Team Fortress 2 slash fiction (Sniper/Spy) in her younger days, and when asked if she prefers yuri or yaoi, she said she liked both.
  • Your Mom: Not above cracking such jokes directed at viewers' moms when she gets the chance. Usually followed by a particular laugh that can only be described as "gremlin-like".
