"GOOD MORNING, MOTHER FU●KERS."

"A child dragon (3,500 years old is young in dragon years) who is fond of human culture. She traveled from another universe to ours, just to study Japanese in a random language school. Also an honorable and heroic dragon who is filled with justice. She tries really hard to keep her human form."

Debut date: December 28, 2019
Birthday: June 17th
Height: 180 cm
Fanbase name: Tatsunoko
Illustrator: yaman

Age (at debut): 3500
Species: Dragon
Place of origin: United States of Dragon America, another world

  • #1 Dime: Her beloved treasure is a worn-out PPTenshi T-shirt (often comically referred to as one of the lamest pieces of Hololive merch), one that's been signed by everyone who came to the Holohouse to check up on her during her hard times. Of course, it probably doesn't qualify as worthless anymore now that it carries autographs from over a dozen idols, but it definitely still looks... less than impressive.
    Coco: LOOK AT THIS FUCKED-UP PIECE OF FABRIC!
  • Actually Pretty Funny: Most of the memes she reviews tends to make fun of her or her coworkers, but Coco can usually see the humor in it.
    Coco: I'm seen as a witch! A witch! Kiryu Coco is seen as a witch! It is entertaining though [laughs]. Let's watch it one more time.
  • Adaptation Dye-Job: In the hololive Alternative PV, her dragon form is orange instead of purple. The change caused enough confusion that Fubuki, after checking with management, and Coco both confirmed that the dragon wasn't her until the staff told Coco that it was.
  • Affectionate Nickname: Coco-chi, used by Watame. A combination of her name and "-chi", a deliberate mispronunciation of the "-chan" honorific.
  • American Accents: In both English and Japanese, she will occasionally slip into an American Southern drawl.
  • The Anti-Nihilist: When a fan asks for her advice for feelings of worthlessness, Coco's response is that everyone is worthless, so just live your life without worrying about "being someone."
  • Art Shift: Coco's true dragon form is always portrayed as a cartoonish 2D dragon, even in one of the 3D anime shorts "Take Over the Animal Kingdom".
  • Berserk Button: Bad Japanese translations, although it's always Played for Laughs. During her Reddit review streams she takes the time to translate the primarily English posts into Japanese for the benefit of her Japanese audience (so they can understand overseas jokes), sometimes finding a post that has machine-translated Japanese in an attempt to communicate the joke in both languages; she has requested that people not do that due to the possibility of misunderstanding. Much to her ire, her fans then decided to go out of their way to mangle Japanese as much as possible just to annoy her.
  • Be Careful What You Wish For: She gave the go ahead to make YAGOO lewds during the Reddit Meme Review episode featuring Fubuki. Come the September 21st, 2020 episode of AsaCoco the daily meme featured was a hand-drawn, waist-up YAGOO lewd. She immediately expresses her regret stating she didn't think anyone would actually take her up on her words.
  • Bilingual Bonus: The second English speaker after Haachama, and outside of Hololive EN, has the best command of the language.
  • Borrowed Catchphrase: She encourages the other girls to borrow her [clap clap] "Next meme!" catchphrase. And her "motherfucker" catchphrase.
  • Breakout Character: Coco became very popular worldwide soon after her debut and currently she is the highest earning idol in hololive in terms of Superchats, with only Rushia coming close to her. This led to her frequently leading multi-idol events and being the center of attention of a lot of hololive's content, especially outside of Japan.
  • Bunny-Ears Lawyer: Despite Coco's content constantly pushing the boundaries of what is acceptable not just by hololive talent but also Youtube content guidelines, she is considered by many of the other talents to be one of the most forward-thinking and downright intelligent members they currently have. Aside from the marketing of the Asacoco line of products being an incredibly humorous way to get her audience to donate (every "product" she lists has an associated cost, usually no more than 2000JPY/20.00USD that her fans will then pretend to purchase with Superchat messages) she also was the catalyst for the creation of the EN branch and many of the talent becoming active on reddit due to proving her own popularity with the overseas audience. She also had a hand in screening the initial audition submissions for Hololive EN, and all the members of that branch attribute her directly for their own success.
  • Buxom Is Better: One of the bustiest members of the company so far, if not the bustiest.
  • Call-Back: In the October 19th, 2020 episode of AsaCoco, Coco debuts a new spinoff product of AsaCoco, the AsaCoco Mist, a humidifier themed after Fubuki which Fubuki herself gifted to Coco during her birthday stream months prior.
  • Chair Reveal: Pulled one of these in her 3D debut stream when revealing her yakuza office. A behind the scenes video showed that it was harder than it looks as Coco wasn't actually sitting in a rotating chair; unseen staff members had to pick up her feet and her chair and squat walk sideways to achieve the same effect.
  • Cleavage Window: Her default outfit has one, though it's buttoned up in her 3D model.
  • Cool Big Sis: She's seen as such by Shion, as best exemplified here where she mimics her movements and follows her lead.
  • The Corrupter: Her potty-mouth and generally un-idol like behavior sometimes rubs off on the others when they stream together. She proudly declares Watame corrupted when she gets her to say "motherfucker" on stream.
    Coco: Okay, so she [Fubuki] learned how to say motherfucker and that's everything I wanted.
  • Cute Clumsy Girl: Implied by her character design. Her debut stream explains that the yellow part of her left horn is actually scratch marks from the numerous times she accidentally bumped her horns into random objects as she wasn't used to her human body yet. That said, she's incredibly athletic and her dancing skills are extremely well trained.
  • Cute Little Fangs: She seems to have a pair of these, judging by the small bumps that stick out from her upper lip whenever she speaks.
  • Daddy's Girl: Coco frequently tells stories about "Papa Dragon", and it’s clear the two are close. He’s even joined in the fun, occasionally writing letters in-character that have been given to Coco on-stream. The first of such, sent to her right after her debut, gushes about how proud he is of Coco for making her way in the world, how supportive he is of her career choice, and how even though there will always be haters, Coco should never let them get to her and remain proud of her accomplishments. This sends her into a small crying fit. Also, yes, her father is depicted with a "pixelated for privacy" picture of Shenron. Amusingly, that last point of the letter becomes rather funny when Coco talks about how she has caught Papa Dragon ending up in flame wars with her haters on Twitter.
  • Dangerously Short Skirt: So short in fact that it poses active problems whenever Coco's waist and below are shown in a 3D model as she constantly risks showing off her underwear.
  • D-Cup Distress: While she doesn't feel this way now, she told a story of her getting used to her human form where an opening door "hit her nipple for massive damage". Said story has become synonymous with the trope among Hololive fans.
  • Dragon Lady: Aside from being a literal dragon, Coco's character as being a Yakuza clan leader and one of the most overtly sexual members of the group gives off this sort of attitude. This is exemplified in her New Year 2021 outfit, which is a Yakuza-styled kimono.
  • Everyone Has Standards:
    • Despite all her comments throwing roasts with just about everyone she can, and occasionally tricking them into saying fairly dirty things, she is protective of her fellow idols, something she'll make known should she feel the need for it:
      • While she's willing to take thing about herself and others in stride, a few jokes cross the line for her, such as one meme about Rushia that ended with "That's not your girl, that's a chopping board!", which got an angry reaction from her. Later streams revealed that it's a matter she regards as a Taboo, uncharacteristically shying away from really going into such memes. She won't stop her guests from doing so, but even then she tries to make it clear it's not her idea. Most of the time it's Played for Laughs as her reaction to any memes involving Rushia tend to be "fear for my own life" before quickly moving on.
      • Downplayed when she specifically chose numerous memes based around the pettan joke for her meme review with Rushia, even specifically choosing several that compared Rushia to herself, then feigning ignorance when Rushia realizes what the joke is about.
    • While she isn't above teaching other girls, especially Miko and Kanata, how to swear in English, she does not want Kanata to say perverted comments in English such as "I am horny" or its variants. Marine also opposes her saying it as well. They eventually started doing it anyway.
    • In her explanation as to AsaCoco hasn't been happening in a while, she explains that despite the show crossing the line in humor and frequenting roasts of just about anyone, it's ultimately a show meant to bring smiles, and as hololive has been going through some tough times, she's felt now hasn't been the right time to do it.
    • When Pekora gives Coco her ears for her birthday stream, the latter is hesitant on displaying the image, asking the former to get her manager's approval first to be sure.
    • Despite every Asacoco commercial pushing it as some kind of comedic ultra-addictive drug, the one for "stimulant-type Asacoco" (read: actual crack) quickly aborts itself and gets replaced with a Drugs Are Bad message.
    • Coco has a habit of getting her fellow vtubers to say "Motherfucker" when she collabs with them during her Reddit meme reviews. But when Sora says it without any prompting from her, she tells her to not say that word again (though she does tell her to repeat it once after the first time).
  • Fangirl:
    • For Kazuma Kiryuu, appropriately enough. She squees when she first sees him in her Yakuza: Like a Dragon playthrough and calls the player character, Ichiban, a "dumbass" for not knowing who he is despite being a yakuza himself. Her love of the Yakuza series is so strong that she makes several blatant shout-outs to the series in her 3D debut stream, like showcasing a modified Tojo Clan emblem with her name on it, a good chunk of the 3D debut stream takes place in a facsimile of the Tojo Clan's office, and she gets the series' distinctive Boss Subtitles character intro screen at one point.
    • There's signs that she's a long time fan of Aki's, with bits with her in earlier meme reviews prompting some remarks, and during the episode with Aki herself, she could barely contain her excitement and squeeing whenver Aki says "Good boy". From there a number of collabs with her (including one where Aki gave Coco belly dancing lessons) followed as well as a stay at the Holohouse where Aki got to sleep in Coco's $9000 bed.
  • Fantastic Drug: AsaCoco commercials present the show itself as some sort of illicit substance. Viewers are spoiled for choice of how to imbibe it: orally, through tablets or dissolved in liquid; injecting it into their veins via syringe; through an IV bag; or controlled-release gadget that happens to be shaped like her dragon tail and is inserted anally. (The last one comes with its own lubrication, to relieve discomfort.)
  • Fantasy Counterpart Culture: According to Coco, her home country back in the dragon world is "the United States of Dragon America".
  • Foolish Sibling, Responsible Sibling: Despite Coco's irreverent attitude, she is the responsible one; she's talked before about her younger sister being a Hard-Drinking Party Girl who would frequently show up at Coco's place while she was living alone smelling of alcohol, tobacco and sweat.
  • Funny Foreigner: Coco plays her American heritage up for all the comedy she can, skimming Reddit constantly, teaching western internet slang as an academic subject, saying increasingly insane things in English, being a Shakira fangirl, intentionally avoiding every possible Japanese idol-like behavior possible to the point of nearly being banned, and admitting when Koefficient pointed it out that her powerful hips could only be American beef.
  • The Gadfly:
    • Due to being bilingual and the majority of Hololive Japan having a command of English that can range from "somewhat serviceable" to "garbled nonsense", she will try to teach her fellow members English... usually by way of blatant vulgarity that they don't understand or by completely misunderstanding what they are trying to say. Getting the childlike Luna to do English phrase lessons on Asacoco is an example of the former, while working with Miko as she roleplays a tourist looking for the Statue of Liberty is one for the latter.
    • She will also do the same with her English viewers, teaching them incredibly rude Japanese in her "Japanese For Real" miniseries, but has enough sense to provide a literal translation of the phrase she's trying to communicate.
  • Get Out!: After returning from a 3 week hiatus, one of her endslides has been reworked to contain this message directed at anyone who has a negative impression of her or dislikes her content, accompanied by a cute picture of Coco in pajamas made to look like her dragon form.
    Don't forget to subscribe if you loved it! If you hated it...FUCK U and never come back
  • Grammar Nazi: She becomes upset when viewers attempt to communicate using bad Japanese.
  • Gratuitous Foreign Language: As those who watched her debut stream and Coco herself can attest to, her Japanese was not very good when she was first introduced, and she admitted she had difficulty reading kanji to the point she only pretended to read it. That said, she has greatly improved since then, having no problem communicating with her peers beyond her accent sometimes necessitating a repeat.
  • Hard-Drinking Party Girl: Coco for a long time only did singing streams when she's absolutely hammered and nearly always would sing in English. Her pronunciation sometimes degrades over the course of the stream as she drinks more.
  • Hartman Hips: Her design evokes this, with her narrow shoulders, large bust, incredibly tiny waist, and huge hips that give her an Impossible Hourglass Figure. Becomes even more noticeable when she appears as her 3D model.
  • Hidden Heart of Gold: She is well known for savagely roasting her peers, her seniors, her company, her president and anything else she feels like, but when inviting her fellow hololive members to play ARK: Survival Evolved she goes out of her way to help and guide them through the first steps of the game, though after that they are on their own. Coco also looks out for her fellow members who are feeling down or in trouble, as shown when she has a heart-to-heart talk mid-stream with Aqua.
  • Hiding Behind the Language Barrier: While she's fluent in English, she chooses to present AsaCoco in Japanese partly to avoid demonetization, since Youtube is primarily monitoring English speakers.
  • Humanity Ensues: As noted in her backstory, she is a dragon who has taken on a human form to join hololive.
  • Hypocritical Humor: One superchat stream she mentions getting told off by higher ups about covering a news story about Projekt Melody note  in a prior AsaCoco stream, advising her not to mention her at all. Coco seems to comply with their request ...up until she responds to another superchat shortly afterwards.
    Coco: "Can I get a Kiryu Coco feet compilation?" What the fuck is a feet compilation? The only compilation I know from XVideos is a creampie compilation!
  • Insane Troll Logic: She thinks that panties are inherently lewd, therefore Going Commando is the appropriate choice.
  • Irony: Despite being in an Idol Singer group, she has refused to sing more than once, and most of her singing is done in unarchived English-song-only streams where she's drunk. That said, she has sung a few songs, though she remains convinced that her voice isn't any good. Her entire image is also built on how she doesn't act like an idol at all. Her dancing however is a different story, being considered by many to be highly skilled (she claims to have learned from watching tons of Shakira and demanded her own 3D model be able to imitate Shakira's style). She finally did a proper Japanese singing only stream after reaching 600,000 YouTube subscribers.
  • Ms. Fanservice: One of the bustiest, tallest, and most raunchy members of Hololive, all at once. By Hololive standards, Coco certainly qualifies.
  • The Noseless: Coco's Live2D model does have a nose, but it's so small, even by art style standards, that it's easy to think that she doesn't have one. Her higher-quality 3D models avert this, and during reveal streams fans jokingly get hyped over her "nose reveal". She eventually got a model update where her nose is finally outlined along with giving her a wider range of movement.
  • Not What I Signed Up For: Coco had originally applied to hololive as support staff, similar to the role that A-Chan currently has. When the 4th generation was starting auditions, she was asked if she wanted to try out for a role in it, since she had a background in content creation (one of the prerequisites for auditioning at all after the first generation.)
  • OOC Is Serious Business: She breaks character and briefly cries during a stream when a timely superchat recognizes the hard work she puts into her channel despite all the risky ban-worthy things she's done.
  • The Pollyanna: One of her free talk streams has her talk about her time as a foreign student in Japan, having no choice but to live in a run-down three-story apartment with extremely noisy (and possibly extremely dangerous) neighbors, since she had little money at the time and the places she could afford turned her down on the grounds of her being a foreigner. She ended up leaving the place after a month since the apartment's management and local law enforcement did nothing to help, with debt collectors adding to the noise (and finally making her fear for her life) being the last straw for her. She talks about all of this in a blasé tone as if it was no big deal.
  • Rags to Riches: It took her longer than the rest of the 4th generation to get monetization available on her channel, forcing her to subsist on her meager salary provided by Cover Corp for quite a while. Within a matter of months, her popularity led her to become the highest earner of Superchats in the world, a title she wears with pride, and has since moved out to a spacious apartment in a new complex with Kanata and purchased a bed worth roughly $9000.
  • Really 700 Years Old: She's about 3500 years old. While this makes her the oldest character in hololive Japan, she's still considered young for a dragon.
  • Refuge in Audacity: Where a lot of AsaCoco's humour comes from, as well as some humour from her streams. While this nearly ended her career multiple times early on, her absurdity made her worldwide popularity skyrocket past every other hololive idol to the point where she's so successful that these days she's given much more freedom to push the boundaries of hololive's acceptable content.
  • Resignations Not Accepted: In her 3D debut stream, she declares that she'll quit being a yakuza to focus on idol work. Moments later, she gets stabbed in the gut from behind by one of her lackeys she was dancing with earlier in the stream.
  • Sarashi: Her New Years outfit leaves the left side of her chest exposed to show that she's wearing one.
  • Self-Deprecation: Coco regularly makes fun of herself whenever she feels like it, but in the AsaCoco segment detailing how she turned down Sora's invitation for a singing collab, she both makes fun of her own voice (to quote, "I sound like Mickey Mouse on drugs") and genuinely thinks she will ruin their collab. For the record, her singing is nowhere near as horrible as she thinks it is.
  • Shameless Fanservice Girl: She has no problem talking about her more private parts, going as far as to have hair removal streams (with a diagram), and isn't really concerned about her model's underwear showing when performing certain movements (which she has gotten a few comments about by fellow idols and staff about.)
  • Show Within a Show: She runs a faux news segment called AsaCoco ("Morning Coco") whose episodes usually consist of her playing the role of a Coco-praising reporter who totally isn't Coco herself and/or ribbing on her fellow hololive members.
  • Sir Swearsalot: She has a pretty dirty potty mouth on her, and tends to drop F-Bombs every now and then. In fact, she uses this as a reason as to why there'll never be an English version of her News Show.
  • Statuesque Stunner: At 180 cm (about 5'11") tall, she's significantly taller than the rest of hololive, the next tallest being Reine, at 172 cm, and the next tallest in JP being Botan at 166 cm.
  • Surprisingly Good English: She speaks fluent English, being born and raised in "dragon America". Almost all of her singing is done in English.
  • Technologically Blind Elders: Not Coco herself, but her real dad. Before she moved out of her house, she recalled that he was embarrassingly awful at maintaining his privacy on Twitter, using his real name on his first account and posting a lot of pictures that give away their location. This, combined with his penchant for starting flame wars on politics-related comment threads, concerned Coco enough that she repeatedly attempted to delete his Twitter account, but somehow found him back on Twitter again after every attempt, apparently being just tech-savvy enough to know how to make new accounts.
  • Troll: It's no secret she enjoys messing with people. In her first collaboration stream with Polka, she deliberately spoke in English which confuses her. And she keeps mixing up her English with her Japanese to confuse the hell out of the poor girl every time she dies.
    Coco: [in English] Are you dead?
  • "Well Done, Son!" Guy: Has mentioned that she would like to gain the respect of her father, who looks down on YouTubers and believes that Coco doesn't have any fans.
  • What the Hell Is That Accent?: She has a strong Southern drawl which bleeds into her Japanese as well. Towa and Roboco both point out that it's hard to do impressions of her. Conversely, Coco's accent makes it hard for her to impersonate others, as seen here when she tries to imitate Subaru. In addition, her true voice is very different than her usual goofy tone for Coco, which can be very jarring on the rare occasions she drops it and speaks normally.
  • Work Off the Debt: The animation Coco made for her debut shows that she works for hololive because she crash-landed into their building and put YAGOO in the hospital.

    Watame Tsunomaki 

Tsunomaki Watame [JP: 角巻わため; CN: 角卷绵芽]

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/watame_3ddebut.png
"Konban-dododo~!"

Debut date: December 29th, 2019
Birthday: June 6th
Height: 151 cm
Fanbase name: Wata-mate
Illustrator: Fuumi (radial Engine)

Age (at debut): 3 (Sheep years, actual age); 18-21 (Human years, converted)
Species: Sheep (?)
Place of origin: Kyoto, Japan

You see through all my weaknesses...
You hold me when I'm lonely...
We always laugh together,
And despite sometimes getting into fights,
I want you by my side forever.
...Promise me.
Ahh, I said it...

A sheep bard that goes around everywhere. She loves singing and is fluffy! YES! FLUFFY! She loves potato chips.


  • Addiction Song: Parodied in the video titled "AsaCoco isn't starting". On the morning of 25th January, 2020, upon realizing there is no AsaCoco due to it being Saturday, she immediately breaks into a musical sequence lamenting on the loss, the music becoming increasingly frantic as the song goes on. In the end, it is strongly implied that she ended up inhaling "respiratory-type AsaCoco", after which she stares at the viewer with Wide Eyes and Shrunken Irises (and without blinking), all while saying "AsaCoco is starting today as well...".
  • Animal Gender-Bender: She had a small identity crisis when her chat and a quick web search lead her to believe only male sheep had horns, though it's actually averted; while less common, there are some breeds of sheep where females have horns.
  • Animal Motifs: Sheep.
  • Attack of the 50-Foot Whatever: A Kaiju-sized Watame inserted herself into the very end of Kanata's 3D debut to plug her own upcoming stream, complete with an a capella version of the Godzilla theme.
  • Boss Battle: Parodied and exaggerated in the Tsunomaki Janken (BOSS) segment of Watame no Uta. The usual BGM is remixed into what can be described as a Japanese version of a dreaded Ominous Latin Chanting boss theme. She even has a Boss Subtitle that says "Janken Overlord of Century's End" (世紀末じゃんけん覇王)! Some have compared the atmosphere to a "Shadow Game" from Yu-Gi-Oh!.
  • Butt-Monkey: A popular target of abuse from her fellow streamers:
    • She is frequently the butt of jokes on AsaCoco.
    • During an Overcooked! 2 collab stream with Botan, the latter eats her note . She respawns, but still.
      Botan: She [Watame] was delicious. But she respawned without issues, so it's all okay.
    • In one of the animated shorts, Korone uses her as a battering ram to open a stuck door. The door doesn't budge, and Watame is casually left with a giant welt on her head.
  • Catchphrase: "Warukunai yo ne?" (悪くないよね?, lit. "Not my fault, right?", but meme'd into English as "Watame did nothing wrong."), often accompanied with a smile and cheeky tone of voice.
  • Civilized Animal: Zig-Zagged. Despite appearing virtually human and behaving exactly like one, she is always treated as an animal:
    • She is constantly being referred to (both officially, and by other hololive members) as simply a sheep, not a (sheep) girl.
    • Watame herself mentioned in a tweet that she grew up with a flock of hundreds of sheeps.
      Watame: Back when I was spending my days in a flock of hundreds of other sheeps, I was taught all sorts of games!
    • In the PV of Watame's cover of "Bubble Love" from In Another World with My Smartphone, one scene depicts a Super-Deformed yellow-wooled sheep dancing to the music, with an annotation image labeled "Studio Watame" at the side. This scene seems to suggest that this is Watame's true form of sorts. However, this could also be a case of a (full) Animorphism being Played for Laughs.
  • Covert Pervert: Her sweet nature and gentle voice makes her occasional moments of perviness all the more shocking. She has a signature side-eye leer whenever she's thinking dirty thoughts.
  • Cry Cute: Watame has a tendency to cry tears of happiness after receiving particularly poignant support from fans expressing how much joy she brings to them.
  • Disappeared Dad: Spoke at length about how her mother (who was a downplayed Missing Mom due to a heavy work schedule) and grandmother (primarily) raised her in his absence. According to her, if anything would have happened to either of them resulting in him being her only living relative, he would have opted to send her and her brother to an orphanage instead.
  • Dirty Old Man: Calls herself Wata-ouji for her perverted behavior and strange fetishes.
  • Does Not Like Spam: She apparently really hates bell peppers to the point of shivering when doing an offline collab with Choco who was cooking dishes with bell peppers in them.
  • Ear Worm: Her Rock–Paper–Scissors BGM.
    Tsunomaki! Tsunomaki! Tsunomaki! Tsunomaki! Tsunomaki! Tsunomaki! Tsu-no-ma-ki jan-ken-poy!
  • Favors for the Sexy: In a case that's more along the lines of "Favors for the Cute", Watame manages to clear a staged Room Escape Game by looking at the camera and saying "I love you, please let me out" with a sad look on her face. Saying "Let me out" was the passphrase for the section and so she wins with barely 14 seconds left, to the shock of Polka and Fubuki in the audience as well and, amusingly, Watame herself, who spent the next few seconds with her mouth agape in surprise.
  • Functional Addict: This has been implied in any crossover content she ends up doing with Coco to some extent. She is the most recurring character in any AsaCoco commercial during Coco's streams, and aside from the song mentioned above, she had been shown experiencing withdrawal and quickly using Injection Type Asacoco on her 3D debut stream twice in order to maintain her composure.
  • Funny Background Event: Tends to steal the show in collaboration streams by wordlessly fooling around with her avatar's facial expressions and movements.
  • Gratuitous English: Due to her nocturnal streaming hours and extremely dedicated English translators, Watame has a relatively large percentage of English-speaking fans. Because of this, she does as best she can to respond to English superchats and other interactions in English back to the sender when she can, though she frequently lacks the vocabulary to do so.
  • Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: She's got a light shade of blonde for her hair and is frequently displayed as a very well-meaning, peaceful, kind sheep.
  • Heavy Sleeper: Her night owl tendencies were backed up by an ability to go to bed early in the morning after streaming all night, then waking up 10+ hours later.
  • Humanlike Animal Aging: Implied to be a case of an inversion (Animallike Human Aging). As mentioned in her introductory video, she is 3 years old (in sheep years). According to Watame herself, that's 18-21 in human years.
  • Iconic Item: Is always seen with a small, white harp. Justified as she is said to be a bard. Ironically, she doesn't actually play the harp; according to her, it's automatic.
  • Little Bit Beastly: While her sheep horns are obvious, she also has a pair of small, fuzzy sheep ears behind her bangs (they are the same color as her hair), as well as a fluffy sheep tail that can only be seen in her character sheet or in videos involving her 3D model. Notably, Watame is a rare case, in that unlike other members who also invoked this trope, she doesn't have human ears in addition to her sheep ones.
  • Metal Head: Implied. She has a distinct headbanging motion she tends to do, and at one point hums Kurenai by X Japan while headbanging as she streams herself playing ARK. It's a little more obvious when done with her 3D model.
  • Never My Fault: That one time where she "apologizes" for her, at the time, bad internet connection. It has since then become one of her most famous catchphrases she would use whenever the situation calls for it.
    Watame: Watame is... not at fault here, right?
  • The Night Owl: Because Watame sleeps during the day, most of her streams take place in the dead of night for Japan. This is one of the reasons she has so many English speaking fans, her streams usually take place sometime in the middle of the day to late afternoon for western countries. This also is why many of her Japanese fans claim to put on her soothing voice while trying to go to sleep.
  • Odango Hair: One of her hairstyles for her New Years outfit.
  • Resurrective Immortality: Says it's alright even if she gets eaten because she'll respawn in 8 seconds. Sure enough, Botan eventually did eat her and after a short time in the afterlife wondering if she should cross over, Watame respawned.
  • Show Within a Show: Runs a weekday segment called Watame no Uta ("Watame's Song Corner") where she sings 2 cover songs and plays Rock–Paper–Scissors for her viewers.
  • Singing Voice Dissonance: Despite her normal soothing speaking voice, she's capable of singing with the voice of a rock band vocalist.
  • Smug Smiler: Played for Laughs at times:
    • In one stream where she introduces her new pillowcase for sale, she reacted to the quick purchases with a lewd joke and closing her eyes slowly, ending up with a smug-looking grin at the end. As this expression greatly amuses her, she proceeds to playfully do it over and over again.
      Watame: This is the first time I knew I could make such a facial expression! Even though it's my own face, it still amazes me that I could make such a face!
    • Her general air in the Tsunomaki Janken (V1) segment of Watame no Uta can come off as such, especially if you happen to lose the game of Rock–Paper–Scissors.
  • Stealth Pun: One line in her Watame Rap has pun of names of her fellow Gen 4 members.
    (Koko) kara (towa) no (kanata) he toma(ru na)
    (From here don't stop to the other side ever)
  • Sweet Sheep: With a gentle voice, she has a sweet and mellow personality to match (comedic skits notwithstanding).
  • Token Wholesome: Enforced, at least in regards to merchandising. Watame actually wants to make more fanservice goods, but management and her coworkers insist it doesn't match her character.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Potato Chips. She is often seen with (and heard eating) potato chips in streams.
  • Verbal Tic: "dododo" (ドドド). "dododo", in this case, is a expression used to denote her (a sheep's) bustling movements. It is used whenever she is excited or nervous, or more commonly, as part of a phrase, such as "Konban-dododo!" (こん・ばん・ドドド!, lit. "Good evening"/"evening" + "dododo"). As seen in her introductory video, this was the first thing she officially said in-stream.
    Watame: Auuu-dodododododododododoh-dododododooh!
  • Wandering Minstrel: Her official description in the Japanese hololive website states that she is (or at least was) leisurely traveling across the land as a bard.
  • Wide Eyes and Shrunken Irises: Gangimari (a Japanese expression for the euphoric expression one does due to intake of psychotropic drugs), one of her signature expression of sorts. She can often be seen with this somewhat creepy, almost psychotic-looking smile-like expression, especially when AsaCoco is involved. However, this is mostly invoked by herself for comedic purposes. This expression has become enough of a signature trait that there is an official hololive pillow cover featuring it, and going as far as eventually becoming a 'standard feature' for most of the cast when they receive new Live2D models from 2020 onwards.
  • What the Hell Is That Accent?: She has remarked about being depressed because her intonation/accent while speaking Japanese is unusual.

"Konyappi!"

Debut date: January 3rd, 2020
Birthday: August 8th
Height: 150 cm
Fanbase name: Kin of Tokoyami

Am I broken?
Do you know if I am broken?
Even still, these tears hurt, they burn.
Did I reach you?
In my singing voice,
Even if I line up my last words,
Layered colors show through...

In order to become an archdemon, she joined the human society for further studies. She should be studying but is now addicted to gaming. She realized that the method commonly known as “streaming” is also a way to communicate with humans. She is now in the “trial and error” process.

Towa is known for her deeper voice, especially when singing, her abnormally large ratio of overseas fans, and her wholesomeness, to the point that her fans ironically call her an angel. She's an avid Apex Legends player which is where most of her famous desk slams come from. Typically, she streams in the morning or evening with gaming, karaoke, and chatting streams. Her Kenzokus are close-knit, always greeting new members with "Welcome to the family!", and they get the chance to play with her in her monthly Apex Legends viewer participation endurance streams or in Overwatch viewer participation matches.

Towa doesn't collab frequently, presumably due to a busy schedule or how she has a healthy sleeping cycle. That said, her collab partners have steadily included Roboco, AkiRose, Choco, Subaru, Mio, Okayu, Pekora, Marine, Kanata and Nene. Outside of hololive, she's part of Tokonokise with Sio Kusunoki and Uruha Ichinose, and has collabed with Ran Hinokuma a few times.


    Luna Himemori 

Himemori Luna [JP: 姫森ルーナ; CN: 姬森璐娜]

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/luna_pic.png
"NNAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!"

"The princess of sweets. She sticks around people, and is easily impressed. However, when her childishness overloads, she will get scolded by her butler. It was also told that those moonshapes are the symbols of her country."

Debut date: January 4th, 2020
Birthday: October 10th
Height: 150 cm (with crown); about 140 cm (without crown)
Fanbase name: Lu-knight
Illustrator: Kanzaki Hiro

  • Achievements in Ignorance: In the hololive collaboration with Suisei, Roboco (who were hosts), Matsuri, Mel, Polka, A-chan, Towa, Lamy, Nene, Fubuki, and AkiRose, she manages to win the Yacht Dice tournament without knowing the rules of the game twice.
  • Amusing Injuries: Subverted:
    • In her collaboration stream, with Subaru she physically fell off her chair and landed on the floor very hard after a particularly nasty Jump Scare in the VR Horror game they were playing. It aggravated existing neck pain so badly that she had to go to the hospital. Scans showed she did not break any bones but her injury was still quite serious as it caused damage of the ligaments in her neck. During her recovery from the neck injury she also suffered from side effects to the pain medicine she was taking that made her sick.
    • Not long after the VR Horror incident, Luna had to have an injection in her right hand after developing tendonitis. It resurfaced a while later, where she painfully tried to talk about it on a stream before she had the doctor the following day only to struggle to keep her kayfabe voice while wincing in agony.
  • Aren't You Going to Ravish Me?: Is actually offended when Matsuri says she wouldn't try to do anything to her because she had no sex appeal, to the point of asking the viewers to draw NSFW art of her to prove her wrong.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: Delivers one to Flare, Korone, and Haachama at bowling. Special mention to Haachama when Luna keeps bowling consecutive strikes while she can do as little as a spare, to the point that Haachama was beginning to lose what little sanity she had left.
  • Cute, but Cacophonic:
    • She knows her voice is somewhat annoying to the other hololive members and tends to play it up for all it's worth. Marine in particular jokingly refers to her as the kind of friend that one would punch in the face because of what she does with her voice.
      Luna: Marine-senchou! Congratulations on 250,000 subs ~nanoraaaaaaaaaa...
      Marine: [copying her tone of voice] Thank you, ~nanor-
      Luna: ...aaaaaaaaaaaaa...
      Marine: Shut up! That's enough! [laughs] I really wanna beat you up.
    Marine would later follow through in a drawing collab stream where she repeatedly "punched" Luna in the face.
    • Matsuri isn't 100% on board Luna's cuteness because she knows that if she brings it up, she'll get all smug about it in a loud manner that annoys her.
  • Deliberately Cute Child: Is not above using her cuteness to get her way; Choco noted that she is very good at getting people to dote on her even in real life. Even when she foisted unreasonable demands on Subaru during their sleepover, Subaru did not appear to be upset about it after the fact and found it funny. Luna was able to snuggle up to Choco later on in the night and generally get pampered.
  • Enfant Terrible: She was this to Matsuri in a game of Granny Simulator. Fortunately for Matsuri, she failed hilariously, unable to injure Matsuri while constantly getting tazed and getting kicked through the air and out glass windows in turn, even with a handicap of no healing for Matsuri. It all culminates with Matsuri procrastinating on the last task to win the game just so she can stun and kick Luna again for shits and giggles.
  • Feminine Women Can Cook: Is noted to be among the performers who knows her way around the kitchen and will sometimes host members-only cooking streams.
  • Giftedly Bad: Her drawings are really something that has to be seen to be believed.
  • Genre Savvy: When it comes to Coco at the very least, as her first response after the former tries to get her to say something was to ask if it was something she'd have to censor out. It was.
  • Hidden Depths: Luna began developing her skills at playing a piano keyboard. She particularly likes playing Godzilla's theme and continues to improve over time.
  • Innocent Swearing: Possibly. She doesn't know much English, but her AsaCoco segments are played off as a cute "word/phrase of the day," all of which tend to be incredibly vulgar. Coco also tried to get her to spell out "If you seek Amy" note  during a gameplay stream but stopped when her chat started telling her that Coco was being a bad influence and trying to get her to say something vulgar.
  • Malaproper:
    • During her Super Metroid stream, she refers to Maridia as Malaria.
    • After feeding the name into Google Translate multiple times, she starts to mishear Let It Be as Wallaby, which she proceeded to play on her piano and adopt as a channel emote.
  • OOC Is Serious Business:
    • Absolutely breaks the sweet and cute innocent girl act when it came to watching Akai Haato cook takoyaki.
    • This happens as well when playing Emily Wants To Play as part of a 3D stream with Subaru; after falling out of a chair out of terror she completely breaks character and doesn't even bother trying to use her in-character voice for the majority of the stream moving forward.
    • Before going to the doctor to get her tendonitis looked at, she attempted to stream and explain the situation. She was in so much pain that she was barely able to keep up the voice and would wince out very frequently.
  • Rose-Haired Sweetie: She has pale pink hair and a cute aesthetic all-around, which makes it even more hilarious when she does things like make fart noises towards her viewers, attempt (and fail) to murder Matsuri during a game of Granny Simulator, or host English classes featuring the words/phrases "Pervert", "Son of a Bitch", and "Kiss my ass", among others.
  • Simpleton Voice: Has this as part of her character, drawing out a lot of her vowels and slurring words like a child would (e.g. "daisuki" becomes "daichuki"). Official English subs on the main hololive channel depict it as Elmuh Fudd Syndwome.
  • Sitcom Arch-Nemesis: has this dynamic with Haachama in collabs ever since the takoyaki incident.
  • Spoiled Brat: Subaru claims Luna acts like this off-stream, recounting an anecdote of Luna and Choco's first visit to her house. Luna tries to fall asleep on Subaru's bed, then she gets annoyed when Subaru asks her nicely to take a bath first. When she relents, Luna demands bath bombs and a ziplock bag to waterproof her phone in. After the bath, she rummages through Subaru's fridge demanding ice cream, complaining when her favorite flavor wasn't inside.
  • Surprisingly Good English: Her English only stream of Super Metroid showed off her limited, but generally correct use of the language. Luna manages to convey her meaning quite well, including speaking about: Asking for help, justifying "Nanora" as being part of her identity, clearing the game, save states, hot water burning, breaking an enemy, that shooting certain enemies doesn't work and that speaking English hurts her brain and turns it into a hamburger.
    Luna: Time limit twenty three, up, up, up, never give up, I can do it, cute is justice, I'm a winner, enemy hot dog, yes, let's go!!
  • The Tease: Towards Matsuri. Since Luna's introduction as a member, Matsuri and Luna have gotten incredibly close and consider each other very close friends. This doesn't really stop Matsuri from flirting with everyone else, but Luna notices that Matsuri treats her very differently from how she treats others on an emotional level, which Matsuri vehemently denies. She also is quick to point out that fan artists are right when they draw them together but with Luna as the more dominant one. She will send Matsuri said fan art, much to Matsuri's chagrin and insistence that the roles should be reversed.
  • Technicolor Eyes: Her right eye is pink, her left is green. The colour difference is so subtle due to the rest of her palette that many viewers were legitimately surprised to learn this, when she said she was revealing one of her "secrets".
  • Token Mini-Moe: If you don't take into account her crown, she's the shortest member of hololive as a whole at only 140 cm (4'7"). By virtue of being zero years old, she's also the youngest.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Takoyaki.
  • Troll: She occasionally falls into this, such as when she says things to specifically get Matsuri riled up, or to mess with her fans.
  • The Unintelligible: During her Super Metroid stream where she only spoke English, she would occasionally verge into this, most often while flustered by the game or unsure of what word to use, and thus confuse both Japanese and English viewers because no one could understand her.
  • Verbal Tic:
    • "nanora" (なのら) at the end of her sentences.
    • She frequently clicks her tongue when she gets angry.
  • With Friends Like These...: Played for Laughs. Luna's existence seems to get under Marine's skin, with just about anything the princess says or does resulting in Disproportionate Retribution from the pirate.
  • Younger Than They Look: She's actually zero years old when she first debuts.
