- The Ace: This applies to her in terms of general gaming, either doing well off the bat or learning to do so quickly. It's likely it was her general interest and skill in games that had her made leader of Hololive GAMERS.
- Animal Motifs: Foxes.
- Animorphism: She took the form of a regular fox in the beginning of her 2020 New Year's outfit debut stream, and was later shown to be able to transform back into human form at will.
- Attractive Bent-Gender: Her ikebo persona "Byakko no FUBUKI".
- Awesome McCoolname: Sometimes uses "Whiteout Blizzard" as a screen name, which is a rather literal translation of her name. Some of her fellow members like to comment on how awesome it sounds.
- Breakout Character: In terms of subscriber counts Fubuki jumped to the top of her generation shortly after her debut and surpassed Tokino Sora to become the most subscriber Hololiver in late 2019. She was the first to cameo in a video game, and frequently leads collabs with other idols. While Coco makes far more money in superchats, Fubuki was the first Hololiver to reach subscriber milestones 300K to 900K, all in less than a year's time. It was only in October 2020 that she was surpassed by Hololive EN's Gawr Gura and fellow Hololiver Gamer Inugami Korone. In the first week of November, she became the third Hololiver after them respectively to reach 1 million subscribers.
- She has some of the most unusual content in the cast, like her infamous acapella covers of songs like "Scatman".
- Her strange behavior also tends to be a catalyst for some of the most unique streams in hololive, such as streaming Minecraft chunk mining for over 2 hours (she made a poll with "just dig a hole in Minecraft" as an option, the usual happened and she went with it) or setting up an unscheduled waiting stream for her colleagues to wake up for their scheduled stream (which needed her to improvise four hours of content).
- Cool and Unusual Punishment: Fubuki was subjected to transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation on multiple occasions as punishment for losing contests against Oga.
- Cool Big Sis: To the majority of Holostars. Most of them refer to her as Onee-san, particularly Roberu.
- Comedic Sociopathy: Not to the same extent as Suisei, but she has her moments. Whenever she plays Project Winter as a traitor, she tends to stalk her targets and catch them off guard. If a teammate dies, she tends to drag their corpse around and acts as if they're still alive.
- Drives Like Crazy: In Player Unknowns Battlegrounds, much to the chagrin of the other girls she's played with. Okayu seems to be a magnet for getting run over by her.
- Embarrassment Plot: She cooks up one as the GM of a session of Call of Cthulhu, repeatedly attempting to put Ayame, Mio and Subaru in embarrassing situations while playing the role of a stereotypical Otaku.Ayame: Moe moe kyun! [laughs and runs away from the camera] I wanna die!
- Fangirl: Of Happy Tree Friends. She revealed this when her chat noticed her humming the opening on her English-only streaming challenge.
- Fetish: Besides the Likes Older Men entry below, Fubuki has a weakness for glasses. She once went on a rant over their appeal that stunned Marine and Luna into silence.
- Gratuitous English: Fubuki regularly uses the English word for "friend", "no", "sorry", "thank you", and occasionally a few other phrases as well as English internet slang like "Get Rekt". When she attempted her English-only challenge the viewers noted that while her usage is mostly correct and her pronunciation is fantastic, her vocabulary is extremely small.
- The Gambling Addict: She loves gacha games, and has admitted to often spending more than she really should on certain games. Fate/Grand Order, Arknights and Twisted Wonderland seem to be some of her favorites. In fact, many fans noted that her 1 million bilibili celebration costume makes her look like she's an Arknights character. She's even stretched this gambling addiction to Minecraft by digging straight down whether she finds diamonds or magma (or the latter right after the former, as it happened).
- Genki Girl: She's very excitable, energetic, and prone to some doing some truly strange things to entertain herself or her fans, intentionally or not.
- Girls Are Really Scared of Horror Movies: She seems resilient to horror media, but this is apparently because she keeps everything windowed because the reduced field of view makes things less scary. When she played a game that was stuck at full screen, she confesses as much to her chat and asks for help.
- The Heart: She's been deemed as such by Matsuri, claiming her to be the pillar of hololive and kept it steady throughout her time as a Vtuber both online and offline, which seems to be an idea that's rather strongly agreed upon by her fans and fellow idols.
- Horrible Judge of Character: Apparently thinks Stefano Valentini is perfectly acceptable as a videogame crush, even going as far as to rattle off his basic mannerisms and his stats after thanking him for a knife when he stabs Sebastian and calling him a tsundere.
- Kansai Regional Accent: Some of the most memetic Japanese phrases associated with her are spoken distinctively in a Kansai dialect. Examples include "Neko yanke" (猫やんけ, roughly "See, you ARE a cat!"), and "Kitsune jai!" (狐じゃい, roughly "I'm a fox, yo!")
- Idiot Hair: She has an ahoge/cowlick, which the Japanese use to signify a foolish character.
- Instant Humiliation: Just Add YouTube!:
- Oga once hosted a stream of him and Fubuki listening to her "cute and flirty" voice pack which was available to purchase at the time.
- Knowing that Fubuki can't escape her talk show until it's over, Kiara had the poor fox recite her line that won Mel's Love Confession Contest more than a year prior. Afterward, Fubuki was so embarrassed she hid under the table.
- Kitsune: During Kiara's HoloTalk stream with her as the guest, she confirmed that she is indeed a Youkai and indirectly justifies her cat-like behaviors (as well as the many different forms she's known to take) as the work of kitsunes' ability to shapeshift.
- The Leader: First member and leader of hololive GAMERS. She has even played the role of an instructor once on Arknights collab stream.
- Let's Just Be Friends: She frequently sees English speakers asking her to be their "waifu" or being called "best waifu". She returns the comments, telling them they're friends instead. She reveals to Coco in their meme review the reason is because she finds it embarrassing when her chat asks her to be their waifu. She doesn't elaborate further on it.
- Likes Older Men:
- At one point in her Death Stranding playthrough, she repeatedly calls Mads Mikkelsen handsome and admits that he made her heart throb. To put it another way, she likes silver foxes.
- During an English-only stream of APEX Legends, upon setting the language to English and hearing Mirage's English voice, she got excited and exclaimed that he has a "Daddy" voice.
- Miko: Implied. According to her 2020 New Year's outfit debut stream, she manages a shrine called "Shirakami Shrine". Additionally, said New Year's outfit is also reminiscent of the attire Inari shrine maidens tend to wear.
- Motor Mouth: Not normally, but there are occasions where she demonstrates this trait:
- Fubuki once overwhelmed Luna and Marine with a rant about how cute 2D characters in glasses are.Luna: You were talking at double speed!
- The time where she sang "The Disappearance of Hatsune Miku", a song meant to be only for Vocaloids due to the words coming out at such a speed that it's almost impossible to keep up.
- Fubuki once overwhelmed Luna and Marine with a rant about how cute 2D characters in glasses are.
- Mystical White Hair: She has snow-white hair, which fits her name and her mystical nature as a fox person.
- Ojou: Plays this role in her collab streams with Aragami Oga from holostars.
- Only Sane Man: In the animated shorts, Depending on the Writer. While she has her fair share of shenanigans with the other girls, she mostly plays this role whenever she appears in the shorts in question. The short involving her, Watame, Mio, Korone, Pekora, Okayu, and Coco does display her more shenanigans side while other shorts will make her look more like the normal one than the centered girls of the short.
- Reused Character Design: Both her and Azur Lane's Kawakaze, are variants of Nagishiro Mito's white and black fox design. Naturally, when they finally meet in the Azur Lane collaborative event, their resemblance is lampshaded several times.
- Riddle Me This: As Nazo Nazo Kamen, she visits a stream and offers a riddle to be solved (with a reward) before disappearing into the night.
- Self-Applied Nickname: Burgerfox. A name she coined herself, which references her Trademark Favorite Food. Can be rearranged with her initialized name to create Fox Burger King.
- Shapeshifter Default Form:
- In the 2020 New Year's outfit debut stream, after saying goodbye to the viewers that happened to see her human form as she was making ozoni in the kitchen (until that point, she disguised herself as a regular fox), she mentioned that the human form she usually takes is her true form.Fubuki: Ah, those were some good folks. Well, they saw my true form but... eh, appearing before humans like this aren't so bad every once in a while, I guess.
- However, during Kiara's HoloTalk stream with her as the guest, it was revealed that there was once a time where Fubuki's true form was a regular fox.Kiara: [Talking about the topic of "How did you discover hololive and why did you decide to join?"] She's a mountain fox. She was very sleepy but she wanted to become a human so when she got the chance she went for it.
- In the 2020 New Year's outfit debut stream, after saying goodbye to the viewers that happened to see her human form as she was making ozoni in the kitchen (until that point, she disguised herself as a regular fox), she mentioned that the human form she usually takes is her true form.
- Third-Person Person: Very often refers to herself as "Shirakami".
- Trademark Favorite Food: Burgers. Going by her reactions while she browsed the Japanese Wendy's menu (which she spent a good five minutes browsing during a livestream), the less healthy, the better.
- Verbal Tic: "sou sou sou" (そうそうそう, lit. "Yeah-yeah-yeah"), usually used in agreement with a statement. She also says "yoisho" a fair lot too.
- Voice Changeling: She falls into this upon occasion, mainly when doing an impression of Marine and she often comes closest to the real deal.
- Yandere: Belted a few lines with a yandere tone at a fan's request. Amusingly, she played the role so well she ended up scaring herself.
- Yoko Oh No: Played for Laughs, but her doing the reacting: When Mio nervously tells Fubuki why she is hiding behind a Shinto wedding illustration, she tells Fubuki she was actually getting married, she did not react to this very well.
Kurokami Fubuki [JP: 黒上フブキ; CN: 黑上吹雪]
Birthday: September 6th
Illustrator: Zareshima Sachi
As one of the first alternate personas in the entirety of hololive, she has become a significant part of Fubuki's character lore, showing up in covers and official songs, as well as technically being one of the only non-hololive members to have their own 3D model.
- Affectionate Nickname: Kuro-chan, used by Shirakami. A portmanteau of "Kurokami" and "-chan", an affectionate Japanese honorific.
- Aloof Dark-Haired Girl: Unlike the cheerful and outgoing Shirakami, she's more quiet and reserved, and prefers to speak no more than what she feels is necessary, especially when playing games.
- Contralto of Danger: She speaks at a much lower pitch than what Shirakami speaks at, though she's no more dangerous than her twin.
- Dope Slap: Is sometime subjected to this whenever Kurokami says something Shirakami deems inappropriate. Offending topics include snarky comments about the viewer(s) or Shirakami, or crude remarks such as comparing tapioca balls to frog eggs.Kurokami: [reading question] "Kuro-san, do you like tapioca?"
Kurokami: Not really. Because you know, they look like frog eggs.
Shirakami bonks Kurokami
- Enemy Within: Originally. In Fubuki's second Plague Inc. playthrough, Kurokami was established to be her "dark side", who would manifested herself as a somewhat sinister voice taking delight in morbid actions.Fubuki: First things first... [snickers] let's see... Yes, let's-
Aki: [in chat] Fubuki-chan, amazing...
Fubuki: [snickers] Aki-chan~
Kurokami!Fubuki: [snickers] Aki-chan, wanna join me? It's a lot of fun~
Fubuki: [clears throat] Just now... something seemed to be awakening within me... whew.
- This however seems to be no longer the case as of September 2019, where Kurokami is shown on stream to be harmless and living in harmony with Fubuki.
- Evil Brunette Twin: Like her last name would imply, she has black hair, although she's less "evil" and more just aloof and snarky.
- Furry Reminder: When asked a question of "tell us what you like about Shirakami", one of the things she mentioned was "she does grooming for me". Specifically, she used the word "kedzukuroi" (毛づくろい), which almost exclusively refers to animals cleaning their fur or feathers. Presumably, this includes the grooming of her fox ears and tail.
- Literal Split Personality: Zig-Zagged. According to Kurokami herself in her first official stream, she simultaneously has her own body, while being "one in body and soul" with Shirakami at the same time. She also mentioned that she's only a part of Fubuki (namely the "black half"), unlike Shirakami who is said to be "Fubuki" as a whole.
- Palette Swap: She looks identical to Shirakami, save for the inverted hair and fur color, red eyes and dressing in a dark version of Fubuki's color scheme.
- Sibling Seniority Squabble: An unusual example in that Kurokami and Shirakami aren't twins in the traditional sense, but two representations of the same person with their own consciousness. Nonetheless, when a viewer asked who is the older sister and younger sister, Kurokami asserted that she is the older one, while Shirakami pointed out that Kurokami sometimes acts like the younger sister too.
- Split Personality: Originally. In the stream where Kurokami made her first appearance, Fubuki described her as "the other me inside of me".
- Synchronization: Downplayed. According to her, she and Shirakami can share taste and senses, but she won't let her do so when Shirakami is eating sweet foods that she hates. Additionally, later on when asked about a hypothetical question on whether she will choose Fubuki or the world, she claims that she doesn't necessarily need to be with Shirakami, implying that she can exist even without her.Kurokami: [reading question] "Kuro-chan, you love Fubuki-chan right? If it comes down to it, you would absolutely choose Fubuki-chan over the world, right?"
Kurokami: Heh, don't be so sure about that. I'm not forever bound to Fubuki. [Beat] The world and Fubuki... which will I choose? That is something we won't know until the time comes.
- Tall, Dark, and Snarky: In comparison to Shirakami, she's much more aggressive and harsh, often not having any tact, and doesn't hesitate at all to insult someone if they so happen to annoy her.
Fubu-chan, Fubu-cha, Chibi Fox, Fubuki [JP: フブちゃん CN: 吹雪酱]
Illustrator: Nuko Miruku
Age (at debut): 5
Occupation: Elementary School Student
Despite technically being an alternate persona, she has been featured in several collaboration streams and songs, including ones with male vtubers.
This profile details trope examples specific to her character on:
OR Content where Fubuki speaks in a child-like (loli) voice.
- And Your Reward Is Edible: In an effort to help out a tired listener from their studies at work, she tells the listener that although work might be difficult, they shouldn't forget to treat themselves. She followed up by saying that the snacks she get as a reward is what motivates her to continue working hard, and humorously suggests that the listener should also try the snacks for themselves.Fubu-chan: Studying at work sounds tough! But even so, you should give yourself a big reward for working hard. When I work hard, I get snacks. And getting to eat snacks make me happy, so I always try my best. Oji-san... Oji-san too should try eating snacks, they're very yummy... [laughs]
- Cheerful Child: During her debut stream, despite needing help from her sister to operate OBS, reading and answering an hour worth of questions from strangers; some of which are of considerable length and some containing difficult kanjis that she greatly struggled with, she never once stopped being cheerful and kept a sunny demeanor in pretty much everything she says.
- Cousin Oliver: She's a child officially introduced in March of 2020, almost 2 years after Fubuki's debut.
- Dual Age Modes: Lampshaded by her at Shigure Ui. After remarking that she doesn't quite understand why Ui is both a "mama" and a sensei, she mentions Ui is sometimes an adult and sometimes a child, and states that she likes both Uis. She then wonders whether Sui-chan can also become a child or not.
- Furry Reminder:
- When asked a question on how she takes care of her tail, she states that before going to bed and after waking up in the morning, she brushes her tail on her own (self-grooming). She then mentions that letting someone else grooms her tail for her also feels good (social grooming). She finishes off the topic by saying that a neat and tidy tail equals a better day.
- During the end-of-month roleplay stream of December 2020, one of the scenarios involves Fubu-chan trying to wake up the lazy still-sleeping viewers. In the end, she resorts to tickling them with her tail to get them to wake up.
- In-Series Nickname: Fubu-chan, a portmanteau of "Fubuki" and "-chan", an affectionate Japanese honorific. Alternatively, she is called "Fubu-cha" instead.
- Only Known by Their Nickname: According to her, everyone calls her Fubu-chan instead of Fubuki, most likely to differentiate her from Shirakami.
- Shared Family Quirks: Like Shirakami in her debut stream, Fubu-chan hid "underneath the stream" and peeked out as she is being introduced at her debut, and is noticeably very nervous and shy with people she doesn't know.
- Sweet Tooth: During her debut stream, she mentioned that for some reason, her house is full of gummy candies and that she's been eating them a lot recently. She also states that she loves almond chocolate. In addition, her segment in the end-of-month roleplay stream of March 2020 revolves around her wanting to eat parfait.Fubu-chan: [answering a question on "what food do you like"] Candy! Candy! I like candy. Food... There's a lot of gummy at home. Since... since ther... since there's so many of them, I've been eating them recently. [...] But yeah, there's a lot of gummy. A lot... And if I don't eat them, they won't go away, yeaah~?
- Token Mini-Moe: Considering that she's a 5 years old child, this is what she is to the Fubuki family.
