hololive Fantasy note 

  • Attractive Bent-Gender: All of them have Ikebo personas, which involves all of them lowering their voices considerably, with the exception of Pekora who speaks at only a slightly deeper tone than her normal voice.
  • Cast Herd: Of all the generations, GAMERS included, they are the most likely to be grouped up for a stream, often collaborating with each other offline and online for all kinds of streams, this extends to their fanart as well. Rushia lampshades it during a call in stream, asking if the other Fantasy members were going to be the only ones that showed up.
  • Empty Shell: In a non-depressing sense. hololive actually designed a pirate, an elf, and a knight avatar before holding auditions for which "souls" would inhabit them. Pekora and Rushia were already designed with input from their voice actresses.
  • The Friends Who Never Hang: Averted. All of them have done a few collabs with one another, occasionally pop into the streams via comments or calls. They've all been in their fair share of group streams, typically with three or four, if not all five of them.
  • Host Club: Going hand in hand with their Attractive Bent-Gender personas, the five of them occasionally host collab stream versions of this. Notably, Homura and Rushifer typically have the most success out of the group.
  • In-Series Nickname: In contrast to the other generations, they're known as "hololive Fantasy" due to the fantasy setting they have.
  • The Last of These Is Not Like the Others:
    • hololive Fantasy consists of a bunny girl, a necromancer, an elf, a knight... and an amnesiac office worker cosplaying as a pirate.
    • Alternatively, a knight, pirate, necromancer and elf all fit the fantasy anesthetic, while Pekora's bunny design is more in line with GAMERS.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Flare is blue, generally being more calm and laid back in the group while Marine and Rushia are Red, being much more loud and Hot-Blooded of the girls with the latter having a Hair-Trigger Temper to boot. Pekora's in between red and blue surprisingly, as she's hot blooded like the latter two but she often ends up playing the Straight Man for one reason or the other. Noel is also a mix between red and blue, as she's mostly soft-spoken and logical, but she can get worked up and loud about something rather easily.
  • Romantic Two-Girl Friendship: While this is typical of a fair share idols in hololive, it's notable that the most prominent couples are almost entirely contained within the group: Marine with Rushia, and Noel with Flare, some teasing with other pairings not withstanding. Pekora's the odd one out, as her most prominent couple is her relationship with Miko that borders on The Rival with Foe Yay quite often.
  • Shout-Out: Their official logo is an Expy of Final Fantasy.
  • True Companions: As shown here, here, and especially here they're all pretty close and get along pretty well with one another to the point other idols comment on it. It truly shows when they're together, especially in their 1st anniversary stream.
  • With Friends Like These...: Played for laughs. Despite their tight bonds, when competitive (and sometimes even cooperative) games are involved, they'll be just as willing to throw each others under the bus to get the upper hand, with the most common offender being Pekora.

    Pekora Usada

Fanbase name: Nousagi Dōmei (野うさぎ同盟 Translation ).
Illustrator: Hagure Yūki

Species: Moon Rabbit
Place of origin: Pekoland, the Moon
Occupation (bar idol): Princess (of Pekoland)

Isn't this body so attractive?
Isn't this face so cute?
Everyone drooling all over,
Pekora's thighs are not tasty!
Please take care of this Pekora!
From now, let's crave the Pekora Story! (Pekora Story! Pekora Story!)


  • A-Cup Angst: While not nearly as frequently occurring as it is with Rushia, Pekora has sometimes been deliberately teased about her modest chest size. A slightly downplayed case, as while Pekora herself acknowledges her model's modest bust, she takes it rather well, and it doesn't seem to be a Berserk Button for her as it is to Rushia.
  • Accidental Truth: At the start of her Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater playthrough, she randomly guesses the game's ending twist. The chat was not pleased.
  • Actually Pretty Funny: When she arrives in the Minecraft server, she noticed Subaru's completed Shubagelion holding both hers and Miko's heads and thought it was funny.
  • Ain't Too Proud to Beg: An element of humor involving her misfortune lies in how quickly she goes from smug gloating to begging for forgiveness the moment things go awry, and then back to smug gloating when the situation starts looking better for her.
  • Alternative Number System: While it is known that she was 111 years old as far as a few months after her debut, during her 2021 Birthday Countdown stream, she revealed that Pekolanders append a '1' to their age each birthday instead of adding 1. This, if taken at face value, would mean her "Japan age" is in fact her real age.
  • Amazingly Embarrassing Parents: During the long-awaited stream introducing her, Pekora's mom starts copying Pekora's Verbal Tic, leaving the latter cringing and exclaiming that the stream will become her dark history. When Pekora reluctantly admits that it would make sense for her mother to also use the verbal tic as she's "also from Pekoland", her mother uses it again, causing Pekora to cringe even harder.
  • Animal Motifs: Rabbits.
  • Asshole Victim: In some streams, she tries to be smug and confident only to repeatedly fail and be brought down several pegs by others, her fans especially.
  • Benevolent Boss: She's very generous to her "employee" Moona, always giving her valuable goods whenever she completes a project, and often praises her skills in building things.
  • Berserk Button: Being called a comedian. When she asked her native fans what her western fans think of her, they tell her that they call her a crazy rabbit and a comedian, something she doesn't appreciate. And then when Moona tells her the most popular comedian she knows is her,she does not take it well and immediately corrects her, telling her she's an idol. Moona asks "Hololive is an idol?"
  • Big Ol' Eyebrows: She has noticeably thick eyebrows, especially compared with the thinner designs of most of the cast.
  • Bizarre Alien Biology: Assuming what she told Flare and Coco is actual fact, Pekora (and all Pekolanders by extension) doesn't have actual, functional "human" ears on the sides of her head. Hers are just for show and to appeal to her audience, since normal humans are more likely to love what they are familiar with. Additionally, her rabbit ears will also grow back if they're somehow cut off. Even more bizarre is that she can somehow use headphones with either of her pairs of ears without issue, despite the fact that her human ears are supposedly fake.
  • Blind Without 'Em: Implied, since Pekora wears glasses. In one stream, she had to take a short break to put on contacts after accidentally bending her glasses and popping a lens out of the frame, and her eyesight is implied to be so poor that she can't read her chat without aid.
  • Body Horror: She cut off her ears to give them to Coco on her birthday stream so she could be a rabbit, brushing the action off since she can regrow her ears.
  • Butt-Monkey: In her 3D debut, she gets flustered, embarrassed, teased, mocked and shocked.
  • Call-Back: On December 6th, 2020, Pekora started a project in Minecraft where she would terraform a desert to create a giant Usada Kensetsu logo so it would display as artwork on a map. She spent an hour looking for dessert big enough to transform until a viewer pointed Pekora towards the desert where she made her rapid-fire TNT cannon, the very first construction of Usada Kensetsu made one year prior.
  • Catchphrase: While less noticable compared to her Signature Laugh, she tends to call anything amazing "kami kami" which means "godlike". "Kitira!" is also a very commonly used celebratory cheer, meaning something in the neighborhood of "I did it!".
  • Characterization Marches On: Pekora was initially portrayed as a shy and frail rabbit girl with low self esteem. Nowadays, she's more-so The Trickster who tends to get what's coming to her for her actions, with her lacking self esteem and shyness being well hidden. However, Pekora occasionally admits she is still very hesitant with social interactions, especially with a large group of people.
  • Character Tics: Her nose usually becomes runny when she gets nervous, as a result she will usually start sniffing or deeply inhaling a lot during tense situations.
  • The Chew Toy: The chat loves to bully her, usually by making jokes at her misfortune.
  • Corpsing: She once dropped her usual Pekora voice and signature laugh because she couldn't handle how much she was laughing over Marine suddenly drunk dialing her.
  • Comically Missing the Point: When Moona attempts to flirt with Pekora during their first voice-call collab.
    Pekora: Moona, what is your favorite food?
    Moona: [with no hesitation] You.
    Pekora: [Beat] ...Oh my God! Oh my God! In Indonesia, are rabbits food?
  • Comedic Sociopathy: She breathes in this trope. Much like Suisei, she enjoys inflicting psychological warfare on someone. She infamously gathered several villagers for scientific experiment involving a zombie, makes death traps as a prank, and naturally acts like a supervillain when a duck and a chick escaped her farmhouse and kills its mother and letting the chick live on the grounds that it's still a child, but did it in a Itachi Uchiha-esque way of doing it note . She is infamously called a war criminal by fans for her actions in Minecraft as a result.
  • Covert Pervert: Leave Pekora and Marine together for long enough, particularly when drinking is involved, and it's usually the much more openly perverted Marine will frequently be left either speechless or shocked by some of the dodgy things Pekora will say.
  • Culture Equals Costume: According to Pekora, her default outfit is actually the formal uniform of Pekoland and everybody there wears the same uniform.
  • Didn't Think This Through: Often, but one particular example comes from after she had gotten an especially strong sword in Minecraft, she was told that the sword wouldn't burn in the lava. After double checking, she decides to throw it in a pool of lava without any plan to get it back. She does retrieve it eventually, but only after nearly dying to that same lava pool and spending many minutes panicking.
  • Dump Stat: She proudly declared she doesn't need Intelligence during her Fallout 4 stream and set it to the minimum of 1. She was annoyed to find her chat calling it true to life.
  • Ear Worm: Her BGM when she plays Minecraft is this.
  • Engrish: Her attempts to communicate with Moona. They're somewhat effective thanks to the help of her chat, but not good enough to make Pekora suddenly realize she said something too forceful and basically had extorted Moona for resources. Hilariously enough, a couple days later she tricked Flare (whose English is much worse) into doing the exact same thing.
  • Epic Fail: Her Ikebo Persona Bekora suffers this quite often due to Pekora's awkwardness preventing her from outright flirting as much as it ends up causing confusion and embarrassment.
  • Exotic Eye Designs: She has tiny pink bunny heads for pupils, although they're really only noticeable in high-res official renders.
  • Fangirl: Became one of Metal Gear after playing Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater. She quickly followed up with the rest of MGS1-4, picked up Snake as her main in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, and even obtained a ration to try out for her 300,000 subscribers celebration.
  • Foreign Culture Fetish: Gives this as the reason she can speak Japanese despite being from Pekoland, a place where everyone speaks in Pokémon Speak.
    Pekora: Pekora studied really hard to learn to speak Japanese, you know? Isn't that worth praising, peko? You see, I really love Japan so I studied everything about it. What ya think?
  • Furry Reminder:
    • In the 1-2-Switch collab with Nekomiya Hinata, upon losing a game of table tennis (that she desperately wanted to win), she begins to disgruntledly stomp her right foot in silence. Although Pekora herself might not have had this trope in mind at the time, it has certainly reminded many viewers of rabbits' tendency to thump their feet when angry.
    • A mild case in her 3D model debut stream : During the introduction, she playfully hopped left and right in quick succession.
  • The Gambling Addict: Dragon Quest V shows that she's a significant one, spending a lot of time in the casino. There's even a two minute clip showing her going through every stage of a gambling addiction, and all of this was over the course of a single stream. She then tried to sell Pankraz's sword to gamble more, but you can't sell it.
  • Girls Are Really Scared of Horror Movies: She's so bad at handling jump scares that she'll literally keel over after one. It's implied that this happens in her 2D streams, as well; her playthrough of The Convenience Store has a moment where she screams her way out-of-frame after one of the game's few jump scares, resulting in her avatar remaining motionless for several seconds. A horror game compilation on the main hololive channel humorously gave her a "Soul Ascension Award" for her reaction.
  • Good Old Fisticuffs: Pekora spends much of her Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater playthrough having Snake CQC soldiers instead of shooting them, even if she has to run across large swathes of empty space to get to her target. To be fair to her, MGS3 doesn't exactly have the most intuitive shooting controls out there.
  • Going Commando: It's implied that Pekora doesn't wear any underwear beneath her coat. When Miko made a passing joke about it in Pekora's 3D model debut, she didn't deny this being the case.
    Miko: You're not wearing any panties after all, right?
    Pekora: *hushed voice* You don't have to say it...
  • Got Me Doing It: Because Pekora's Verbal Tic is something that is one of the most pronounced among hololive (and the only consistent one in her generation), more than a fair share of hololivers actually copy it from time to time.
  • Hammerspace: In one episode of Holo no Grafitti, it is revealed that Pekora's hair braids contain a miniature singularity in them, and the carrots she wears actually serve as plugs of some sort. When one of the carrots was removed, Noel, Shion, and Korone got sucked into the void.
  • Hidden Depths:
    • She takes the time to write and tweet out a poem at the start of her streams.
    • Despite her usual antics, Pekora had demonstrated time and time again that she's also a pretty damn good singer in her own right. One of her most successful attempts to date was her cover of Nanawo Akari's Discommunication Alien, which overtook the original five-year-old version in views and reach in the span of less than nine months. Many fans have joked about how this natural-born comedian is now singing like an actual idol.
  • Hot-Blooded: She's loud, passionate, and rambunctious and she knows it. Amusingly, this is downplayed when off stream and/or when grouped with the other members of Fantasy.
  • Humongous Mecha: Her self-styled "Pekodam" in Minecraft is supposed to be this, being ostensibly a Gundam version of herself. It has gone on to inspire other hololive members to build their own Humongous Mechas as well.
  • The Hyena: On a good day, Pekora just can't seem to stop laughing. If she's not constantly cracking up at random things she encountered in the games she's streaming, she's either chuckling while being up to no good, or at the hijinks that her friends are taking part in.
    • Taken to its logical extremes in this Super Smash Bros. Ultimate stream, where she's left constantly wheezing for several minutes from Rushia making weird sounds and turning into EVA Unit 01 partway through the match. The audience even joked that her directional laughter was actually the inputs all along.
    • In her English Quiz Stream she wound up laughing a lot from many of the odd "questions" present. Her reaction to both Takashi being referred to as a cockroach and Takashi asking if a pen (actually a pencil) is a pen left Pekora out of breath.
  • Hypocritical Humor: Despite being one of the most consistent hololive idols with her Verbal Tic, Pekora cannot stand it when anyone else copies it, calling it weird and evidentally cringing when she hears it.
  • It Is Pronounced "Tro-PAY": Her name is supposed to be pronounced with the emphasis on the first syllable (i.e. Pe-kora, not Pe-ko-ra). She intentionally mispronounces it as well as many other words in a bit of a recurring Verbal Tic, i.e magma -> ma-GOO-ma and bikini -> bi-KII-ni.
  • It Runs in the Family: According to her "Come out" 1-million subscribers celebration stream, it's quite apparent that Pekora inherited her Signature Laugh from her mother.
  • I Shall Taunt You: Comes with her Smug Snake package. If Pekora has the upper hand in a competition and knows it, she will not hesitate to taunt and make fun of her opponent to make them slip up even further, sometimes even joining their own streams to do so over voice chat, as poor Noel can attest to during their Getting Over It contest. This usually devolves into Unsportsmanlike Gloating if she ends up winning.
  • Insistent Terminology: Pekora is not a comedian, she's an idol. Not that her audience cares, anyhow.
  • I Work Alone: Due to Pekora's extreme introversion, she tends to only stream Minecraft when there aren't many other members online and consistently denies help when working on larger, more involved projects since she's afraid of being a hindrance, with Miko being one exception. As noted below, Moona has helped her get over her anxiety slightly and she now willingly will accept help for more advanced constructions, but typically only from her.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Downplayed, but Pekora does enjoy in messing around with anyone in just about every way possible, being quite the mix of a prankster and a troll at any given point. However, she's very kind, and she keeps all the gifts she's been given from her fans. As Pekora's fans are quick to point out, her main goal in her pranking is to make her friends laugh, rather than being outright malicious like most trolls. To wit, when Rushia accidentally fell into Pekora's slime trap and lost a number of items including an enchanted pickaxe, Pekora's response was to leave a chest full of items (including a new pickaxe) on Rushia's doorstep as an apology, even though it wasn't technically her fault note .
  • Kiai: She has a habit of loudly screaming "ORA!" when beating someone or something up in games, or at least she tries to, as with her special way of enunciating it, it usually comes across as anything but that.
  • Likes Older Men: If her playthroughs of the Metal Gear series and Yakuza 0 are any indication, she Fangirls hard for middle-aged badasses.
  • Little Bit Beastly: Has bunny ears and a tail to match. Oddly enough, her human ears are still present (they're more obvious on 3D streams) and it's never implied that her bunny ears are fake. Flare points this out while chatting in one stream, blowing both Marine and Coco's minds. She soon explains her human ears as just for show so humans can relate to her easier.
  • Live Mink Coat: The rabbit scarf around her neck is named Don-chan. He's extraordinarily lazy.
  • Lunarians: Considering that both she and other hololive members consider the Moon as her homeplace, this would mean that Pekoland is in fact a country on the Moon, and that Pekolanders are essentially moon rabbits.
  • Manipulative Bastard: In regards to both her pranking and in games of deception such as Among Us, she is a master at predicting her fellow members' actions and moving them in such a way to be beneath suspicion. In particular, she gained the trust of several members in a 1v7 match of Among Us and let them turn against each other in order to achieve a nearly impossible victory as the Impostor.
  • Meganekko: She wears a pair according to one stream, and she can be seen gesturing as if she's adjusting her glasses in special streams where her entire character model is shown, such as her 3D debut. She tries to justify it in-character by clarifying that they're 'invisible glasses'.
  • Moon Rabbit: What she is meant to be. On numerous occasions, the Moon has been referred to as her homeplace. Additionally, in Watame's Can You Do the hololive song, her accompanying background visual also directly depicts this moon rabbit imagery.
  • Morality Pet: Moona, at least initially. Out of all the hololive members on the Japanese Minecraft server, Pekora used to spare her from pranks and makes every effort to help and communicate with her in English. Even Moona herself was nervous at first that she was going to be spontaneously blown up. It was only after witnessing Moona's ability in construction that she became willing to prank her. In addition, Pekora has made an exception for Moona and invited her to work on a large cooperative construction project together, something that Pekora rarely does since she normally likes to work alone.
  • Motifs: She's based on a rabbit so naturally, carrots. Pekora herself has several carrots embedded on her, such as in her hair and her clothing. Her stream starting transition features a stylized carrot, some of her stream backgrounds are literally just a bunch of carrots against a colored rectangle, and most of her self-styled imagery has to contain a carrot somewhere, sometimes coming close to reaching the point of Sigil Spam.
  • Motif Merger: The official Usada Kensetsu logo features Pekora's rabbit and carrot motifs with a purple moon in the back for Moona Hoshinova.
  • Motor Mouth: Downplayed when compared to Suisei or Miko, but when Pekora feels nervous she notably talks a lot faster, as seen when she finally speaks with Himawari (a Vtuber from a different company) whom she admires. Himawari herself points out Pekora speaks unusually fast when compared to her streams.
  • NEET: Zigzagged; her immediate family doesn't know that she's employed as a VTuber, so they treat her as if she was a NEET. A few weeks after she hit 1 million subscribers, Pekora told her mother about hololive and held a stream properly introducing her to the fanbase.
  • Nightmare Fetishist: In one of her Minecraft streams, when she saw the completed Shubangelion holding the severed vomiting heads of herself and Miko, she found it cute.
  • Noblewoman's Laugh: Her Signature Laugh has been likened to this, which makes sense in hindsight considering how she's basically a noblewoman due to her status as princess of Pekoland.
  • No Sense of Direction: This incident on ARK: Survival Evolved. She has trouble figuring out directions relative to a map like "north is to your left" (to the point where she asks her chat to explain it like she's a grade schooler) and consistently gets cardinal directions (north, south, east, west) incorrectly, thanks to a mahjong mnemonic that she understood wrong.
  • Ooh, Me Accent's Slipping: During rare moments when Pekora gets distracted enough (e.g. when Marine drunkenly prank called her), she will start speaking in her real, natural voice, which sounds surprisingly mature and deep (about on par with A-chan of all people) compared to the high-pitched voice her character is known for. Usually, she will be quick to notice and correct this.
  • Parrot Exposition: Pekora inadvertently gets into the habit of doing this in her Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater playthrough, and she almost always parrots someone shortly before Snake does. She even lampshades this at one point.
    EVA: I've hidden a WIG there.
    Pekora: WIG?
    Snake: WIG?
    EVA: It's a state-of-the-art ground effect vehicle.
    Pekora: What's that? Ground effect... vehicle?
    Snake: Ground effect vehicle?
    Pekora: This is bad, I'm starting to synchronize with Snake. [laughs]
  • The Paragon: Because of her example both Moona and Kiara were both inspired by her to do better (in Moona's case being too shy before Pekora started talking to her to make friends, and in Kiara's case showing her a new way to reach her dream by joining Hololive), and both have broken into tears from thinking about how meeting Pekora changed their lives. Pekora also realized once that her own behavior had started to change after meeting Moona to be more confident.
  • Pokémon Speak: Not Pekora herself (at least on earth), but on many occasions, she has stated that the Pekoland language, her native tongue, consists only of the word "Peko".
  • Playboy Bunny: Her default outfit to go along with the rabbit motif though her coat makes it less obvious.
  • Poor Communication Kills: When she starts getting a zombie villager to follow her throughout hololive's minecraft server, she doesn't tell anyone what she's doing. Lamy, rather fairly, assumes Pekora is being attacked and tries to "save" her. Pekora then kills her.
  • Protectorate: Of Marine, after she saw how shy and anxious Pekora is in real life. If they're playing a game together and aren't at each other's throats, Marine will tend to take Pekora's side and be defensive of her as well.
  • Rascally Rabbit: What a lot of her fans think she is. In the overseas fandom, some call her a "crazy rabbit".
    Pekora: Maybe what overseas see about Pekora is... that they think Pekora is a "crazy rabbit" or something.
  • Really Royalty Reveal: During her debut stream, there was no mention or hint of her being royalty, much less a princess. She would later on reveal that she's the princess of Pekoland and that she purposely hid her identity at that time because she thought it would be better for her to do so as princesses often get kidnapped. Despite some viewers' doubting whether this was true or not however, one of her card in the official Rebirth for You trading card game confirms that she is, in fact, the princess of Pekoland.
  • Screaming Warrior: Much of her Mordhau playthrough is spent either screaming along with her Player Character or screaming at her teammates to go kill things.
  • Shipper on Deck: Possibly. Pekora seems to be one of the most curious about how genuine Flare and Noel's relationship is, seeing how she's asked Noel twice on the subject.
  • Shrinking Violet:
    • Despite her behavior on stream, she is incredibly shy offline. During her first meetup with the other members of the 3rd generation, she met with Marine at a train station on the way and clung to her like a lost child until they arrived.
    • Before a collab with the first generation, Pekora was a nervous wreck in the waiting room -even admitting this to the staff before the stream began- and struggled a lot to start conversations with both Matsuri and Haato while waiting for Miko as it was the first time Pekora met both and Miko was the only one she was comfortable talking with. However, Miko was the last to arrive.
    • She has admitted she doesn't like logging onto the hololive Minecraft server when there's more than one or two people on and prefers to work on her more advanced projects alone, with her reasoning being that it stresses her out to work with others. Interestingly enough, she made fast friends with and gets very well along with Moona despite not being fluent in English. According to Pekora herself, this is because she somehow feels more confident when speaking in English.
  • Signature Laugh: Has a distinctive, high-pitched laugh that fansubbers often accent with arrows. According to other Vtubers she's met IRL, it's the same offline.
    Pekora: AH↓HA↑HA↑HA↑HA↑
  • Sitcom Arch-Nemesis:
    • With Miko. If they meet on the same game, chances are they'll be at each other's throats and/or trying to out-prank each other. Makes sense since they met before joining hololive. She once even apologized to her about it before both just bursted out laughing. This culminates in PekoMiko War, a music video based on this rivarly.
    • Also with Noel. After using psychological warfare on Noel, the latter had been forced to play a VR horror after losing their Getting Over It race. Since then, Noel makes it very personal whenever she's brought up. The feeling is apparently mutual, since when they play Among Us, Pekora only voted Noel while everyone else voted on Pekora (keep in mind, Botan was explaining what the game mechanics was to the other girls, and voting someone off the ship if they think the person on question was an Impostor in an Emergency Meeting). It reaches its breaking point when Noel and Pekora had a massive argument while Nene was in the middle of it, and trying to get her to choose a side. Nene eventually chooses Noel and has Pekora booted, who was the Impostor.
  • Smug Smiler: Her avatar's almost always smiling, and Pekora's typical attitude is very smug.
  • Smug Snake: She loves to taunt and mess with people whenever she thinks she has any kind of advantage in a game, but the second things get out of her control she quickly tries to weasel out of any punishment she might receive.
  • Straight Man:
    • Only when she's with the other members of the third generation. It helps that of the five of them, she's the only one who hasn't expressed attraction to someone in their group, leading her to be the more rational one of the lot.
    • Surprisingly, this also apply when she works with Moona in her Minecraft streams due to the latter's Brutal Honesty and The Tease tendencies.
  • Tears of Joy: She cried happy tears after she reached 1 million subscribers during a live stream.
  • Troll: She has an almost Tewi-like propensity for indirectly messing with her fellow hololive members, especially where Minecraft is concerned.
  • The Unmasking: Pekora finally revealed she was a VTuber to her mother after reaching 1 million subscribers.
  • Third-Person Person: She refers to herself as "Pekora", "Peko-chan", or variants thereof almost all the time. Only very rarely will she use the standard Japanese pronoun "watashi", and these are occasionally the moments where she forgot to be in character. The only exception to this is her Twitter poems.
  • This Is Gonna Suck: She has a visual variant of this. Whenever she's playing a horror game and expecting to be terrified, her right ear will fold down slightly.
  • Unusual Euphemism: In Minecraft, Pekora created two item farming contraptions that involve dropping hostile monsters from high altitudes so that the fall will kill them and their loot will drop. When explaining in English how this process works to Moona, she says that the monsters "fall in love".
  • Unwanted Assistance: Happens less often, but Pekora can also sometimes end up accidentally screwing up someone that she's actually trying to help. To wit, in Minecraft she was trying to give Miko some cover fire as Miko built a bridge. She shot Miko instead, sending her plummeting to her doom. As Jerk with a Heart of Gold above states however, she will at least try and make up for it. In this case, she did by rushing back down and picking up Miko's equipment before it despawned.
  • Verbal Tic: Ends all her sentences with "peko" (ぺこ). Official English translations of the animated shorts turn it into puns by replacing certain syllables with "peko", i.e. "pekoing to" (going to), "pekon" (reckon), and "pekouraged" (encouraged).
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: She is this with both Miko and Marine. Almost any time Pekora is pitted against one of them in any sort of competition will resort in taunts and insults flying between them until a victor is decided and then some, but she's quite close and comfortable with both. The "best bud" part is doubly-so with Miko, where she went as far as to admit that if she ever did a Totsumachi event note , she believed Miko would be the only one who would show up.
  • Weight Woe: For a while, since she noted that she was gaining a bit around her tummy, leading to her weighing herself on-stream and feeling relieved that she wasn't as heavy as she thought. According to her admission, she weighs as much as three carrots, and her character model rather conspicuously has exactly three carrots stuck into various places, so she's essentially claiming to be weightless.

Necromancer Princess -Omen- Rushia (2020 New Year's outfit) 

Necromancer Princess Rushia (3rd 2D outfit) 

Debut date: July 18th, 2019
Birthday: January 22nd
Height: 143 cm
Fanbase name: Fandead
Illustrator: Yasuyuki

Age (at debut): 1599 (actual age); 16 (presumably human years, converted)
Place of origin: Makai
Affiliation: Makai Academy
Occupation (bar idol): Student

  • Accidental Murder: A recurring element throughout her streams is Rushia's love for cute animals and her tendency to accidentally murder said things. In her Ark playthrough, her attempts to tame a penguin largely involved her beating multiples birds to death with a club while begging them to survive. In Minecraft, if Rushia wants a pet it's a good bet it'll involve at least one accidental murder. Her inability to avoid this trope probably has no better showcase than her first attempt to tame a Strider. She manages to get one home but striders have a lethal vulnerability to water. When trying to remove the water elevator in her house, she ends up spilling some down the stairs for the strider to walk right into it.. A saddened Rushia vows to succeed next time.
  • A-Cup Angst:
    • Downplayed, as its mostly used for jokes, but Rushia has on occasion hinted that she is a bit sensitive about her cup size. She usually uses this to joke about having Gag Boobs. She gets very defensive when people call her flat, even if only by unintentional implication.
      Rushia: "Chopping board"? [...] Right, chopping board mhm... note 
      Kagura Mea: ...Why did you have such a shocked reaction?
      Rushia: I'm, like, having a psychological attack...
    • When collaborating with Coco on the Reddit shitpost review, Rushia loses her shit at a couple of "pettan" jokes made at her expense, such as the teppanyaki / pettanyaki swap and the chain of comments comparing Rushia to a cutting board. Coco awkwardly tries to end the stream, but Rushia then comically erupts in a rage and starts screaming over Coco.
      Rushia: I'm not pettan, you know... Right, Coco-chan?
      Coco: [Beat] Right then, everyone. Thank you very much Rushia for coming on and reviewing memes-
      Rushia: RUSHIA IS NOT A PETTAN! I'M BOING BOING! I'M BOING BOING YOU GUYS! IT WAS FUN, THANK YOU, BUT I'M BOING BOING, OK?!
    • Surprisingly subverted when her viewers mentioned that a Fandead who sent in photos (with her face obscured) had a larger bust than her. Instead of pressing her Berserk Button about her chest, she got outraged that they were looking at her Fandead like that.
      Rushia: Oi! What are you saying? Don't look at her like that! Don't look at my fandead-chan like that!
  • Ambiguously Human: She's distinctly cited as being from a demon realm though she behaves and looks like a normal human, it's not clear how different she is exactly beside the odd hint every now and then. She's also noted to be much older than a regular human could ever hope to be (during a collab with Kiara, she claimed to be 1600 years old) and yet still looks quite young.
  • And Call Him "George"!: Regardless of game, Rushia's attempts to befriend animals/tame them to be her pets always end tragically. Multiple attempts to obtain a penguin in ARK: Survival Evolved end up with her killing the poor thing, and her attempt to obtain a fox in Minecraft resulted in the fox jumping into a fire.
  • Animal Motifs: Butterfly. All of her outfits feature them in some form, her eyes have a butterfly-shaped light reflection, and whenever her name is prominently displayed, it is almost always accompanied by butterfly outlines / silhouettes. Justified, as butterfly is often seen as a symbol of death and rebirth.
  • ASMR Video: She produces this sort of content, mainly to relax listeners and out them into a state of calm rather than doing anything Choco does.
  • Attention Deficit... Ooh, Shiny!: She can get distracted or forget things surprisingly easily, which can halt her progress or leave her at a loss as to what she was supposed to do. Her superchat readings are known to go on for a while due to the fact she often goes off on a tangent while responding to them.
  • Berserk Button: Any comments relating to her lack of a buxom chest is an easy way to set her off, as is talking about other hololivers unrelated to the stream. While the later is typically her just playing up being a Yandere for the sake of comedy, the former tends to make her seem legitimately angry at times.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: She's generally sweet-natured, but she's also known for being pretty savage at times. A good example being one time where Aqua called her and asked her to "treat her sadistically", at which point Rushia hung up.
  • Big Brother Worship: Understandably so, considering her brother has chased away a group of bullies and a child predator when they were young.
  • Cats Are Mean: Her cat has both knocked several things off her desk and attempted to play with her ASMR mic when it was being used.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: Bordering on Yandere, and played for laughs. Rushia has gotten angry when the chat mentioned watching other hololivers during her streams.
  • Contralto of Danger:
  • Cope by Pretending: Rushia copes with her cutting-board chest by insisting she's "boing boing" so much it turned into her catchphrase.
  • Cute Little Fangs: Her 3D model has one fang that's only noticable when she talks.
  • Cute, but Cacophonic: When enraged her screams (WARNING: LOUD) sound like they can wake the dead. A common joke in her fandom is that what she lacks in chest size, she makes up for with lung capacity.
  • Dull Eyes of Unhappiness: She tends to get these when entering Yandere Mode
  • Elegant Gothic Lolita: Although not quite as frilly as some of the trope's examples, her full art still generally looks like one. Her Princess Rushia outfit on the other hand, plays this completely straight.
  • Epic Fail: Wanting to be truthful to Ring Fit Adventure, Rushia understandably attempted to block out her screen as she typed in her real age and weight. Unfortunately for her, fans were immediately able to deduce what she put in, much to her confusion.
  • Everything's Better with Penguins: Subverted, much to Rushia's dismay. While she truly enjoys penguins and repeatedly tries to tame one in ARK, but any attempts to do this always ends in either the penguin brutally beaten to unconciousness or dying a cruel death.
  • Fangirl: She's been a fan of Subaru since before she joined Hololive.
  • Guttural Growler: Not usually, but when sufficiently enraged, her voice can become very low and rough (and loud), to the point that she has humorously been compared to Death Metal singers.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: She can get surprisingly mad (and loud) over little things very quickly, which contrasts greatly with how soft spoken she otherwise is.
  • Head Pet: She occasionally streams with a small doodle of a chick resting on her head.
  • Hot-Blooded: She's not enough of one to be a Competition Freak, but she can get pretty fired up any competitive event, and anything that happens to cause her to lose her temper will cause her to get even more fired up.
  • Hopeless with Tech: Downplayed/Type 2, as she's not truly hopeless with technology, otherwise she wouldn't be able to stream, but she does things during her stream that boggles Coco, who is mainly a PC gamer. For instance, Rushia didn't know how to paste text into ARK's debug console other than right clicking, then left clicking "Paste" (which doesn't work in most games) and called Coco "godly" for teaching her how to paste with Ctrl+V (In her defense, debug shells are always universally disabled or outright removed from console games, thus even their existance would be bewildering to a console-exclusive or non-PC gamer). In a later collab, she similarly didn't know OBS could play the royalty-free music she was streaming off of YouTube if she just went and downloaded it as an MP3 file. Sometimes goes into Walking Techbane territory, at least as far as her poor Wii U is concerned.
  • Necromancer: Her theme. One of the animated shorts show that attempting to hypnotize her causes everyone to pass out with no memory of the event.
  • Next Tier Power-Up: Unlike most other hololive members, each one of her alternate outfit is actually a new 'form' for her, so to speak:
    • According to her backstory in her 3rd 2D outfit reveal stream, her pink-haired outfit is the representation of her transformation from a regular necromancer into a necromancer princess. This new height of power was not just given to her for free however, as she mentioned that she died multiple times in her struggle to achieve this form.
    • After revealing her 3rd 2D outfit in full, she retroactively explained that the pink highlights in her 2020 New Year's outfit was in fact an omen of this new form of her. In other words, her 2020 New Year's outfit is the in-between/incomplete state between her regular necromancer self (green-hair) and her necromancer princess self (pink-hair).
  • Nice Girl: Despite being known for her Clingy Jealous Girl tendencies, she's quite nice to everyone she interacts with, beautifully highlighted here when she acts as if she had only just started her stream when Kanata overslept by 20+ minutes to try and alleviate her guilt.
  • No Indoor Voice: When Rushia is particularly worked up about something, she screams or raises her voice to impressive volumes.
  • Odango Hair: Her hair is styled into twin buns, with bows and a cartoon skull-shaped clip to reference her backstory as a necromancer.
  • The Pirates Who Don't Do Anything: Despite being known as a necromancer, she's only ever demonstrated her powers once on her 3D debut stream. This is played straighter in the animated shorts, where her character background isn't used as some sort of gag, unlike most of the other characters.
  • Rage Breaking Point: Most of Rushia's more notable moments happen whenever she gets too frustrated to keep her composure. This infamous Fall Guys incident is a prime example. She had been trying to play the game for a while and had tech issue when starting the stream, and only completely lost it when she found out the game was down for maintenance.
  • Red Baron: The Necromancer.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: Subverted. Despite having bright red eyes, Rushia is a very kind and understanding person, even if she gets annoyed at her chat on occasion.
  • Really 700 Years Old: She revealed her age on a collab with Kiara to be 1600.
  • Right for the Wrong Reasons: Multiple times during Among Us collabs, she has been voted off the ship while being the impostor. Here's the kicker: This always occurs when she hasn't even killed anyone yet, usually because she was in the wrong place at the wrong time and getting random crewmate deaths pinned on her. Cue massive rage outburst.
  • Saying Too Much: She accidentally blabbed about Flare's 3D debut when she believed her chat already knew about it, cue an Oh, Crap! and an attempt to cover it up as Flare and Marine try to reassure her and tease her respectively.
  • Shout-Out: Due to her tendency to yell at the top of her lungs whenever she gets worked up incredibly frequently, she's been equated to Eva Unit 01, with her gen mates in particular poking fun at her for it.
  • Shrinking Violet: She's often polite and soft spoken, stuttering and fumbling over her words whenever she's embarrassed. Though it should be noted that this is slightly downplayed around third gen members, as she's more relaxed and a bit louder. It's also gone when she's upset enough, as her voice lowers and becomes much more clear and concise than before.
  • Something Only They Would Say: When the rest of third gen had to find out which Marine was real, Rushia was trusted to discern the right answer. She only needed to ask a single question and near immediately identified the right one. The only reason it went on longer was because A-chan encouraged her to ask another question so the segment wouldn't be too short.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Her translation software usually romanizes her name as "Lucia."
  • Stalker Without a Crush: For a good portion of fifth gen's first visit of Hololive's Minecraft server, Rushia follows them while keeping a healthy distance away from them.
  • Straight Man: Only in the animated shorts, as Rushia herself is often caught up in what's going on around her to play this role otherwise.
  • The Scream: Rushia's reaction to Tamaki telling her he loves her over Discord is to let out an ear-piercing screech and promptly hang up.
  • Third-Person Person: She pretty much always refers to herself in the third person.
  • Token Mini-Moe: At 143 cm or just over 4'8", Rushia is among the smallest and youngest looking members of hololive.
  • Tsundere: A type B to Marine, in contrast to her Yandere treatment of Inuyama Tamaki. Rushia is typically very kind to everyone she talks to, but her treatment of Marine can come off as colder, and she may give some rejection towards the pirate. However, Rushia does care for her significantly, she usually expresses this in a more subtle manner. Although, she can be more open and avert this trope, depending on the circumstance.
  • Verbal Tic:
    • "nano desu" (なのです, roughly meaning "it is"). As Rushia herself has admitted, this particular tic has died down considerably compared to her early streams, and is more often than not brought up as a joke or in animated shorts.
    • She sharply sucks in air whenever she's trying to keep herself from being too bothered by something.
  • Weirdness Magnet: Her Animal Crossing: New Horizons online experiences have their fair share of weirdos, with the crown arguably going to the owner of a toilet arena.
  • We Want Our Jerk Back: During a game of trying to spot the impostor between four Marines, one in particular offers to spoil Rushia and take her home in contrast to the other who teases her and scolds her. While she admits she likes the former and the rest of third gen says whomever she picks is the new Marine, Rushia ultimately picks the one she knows is the real deal.
  • Who Writes This Crap?!: In one animated short, she has to stop a rampaging giant Fubuki by reciting an extremely mushy script. She absolutely refuses to do so, and Fubuki continues destroying the world.
  • Woman Scorned: Marine's "cheater" animated short has Marine trying to coerce Rushia into marrying her. Despite Rushia's initial assumption that Marine will cheat on her, she ultimately relents... only for Marine to immediately call Flare on the phone, prompting Rushia to punch Marine in the face.
  • Yandere: For fellow virtual Youtuber Inuyama Tamaki, where her aggressive clinginess clashes with his naturally flirtatious personality. When asked what she'd do if Tamaki cheated on her, she calmly vowed to annihilate his mistress before hunting him down.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Her original outfit has a seafoam green/turquoise shade of hair, while her necromancer princess outfit has a light shade of pink.
  • Your Soul Is Mine: In her 3D Debut she quickly ate the souls of her fandead.

    Flare Shiranui 

Shiranui Flare; Homura (Ikebo Persona) [JP: 不知火フレア; CN: 不知火芙蕾雅]

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/flare_pic.png
"Kon-nui!"

Debut date: August 7th, 2019
Birthday: April 2nd, 1798
Height: 158 cm
Fanbase name: Elfriend
Illustrator: lack

  • Affectionate Nickname: Fu-tan, portmanteau of the first syllable of her name and "-tan", a deliberate mispronunciation of the "-chan" honorific. She is called this at times by both fans and hololive members alike.
  • Ambiguously Gay: While it's difficult to tell due to her status as both The Gadfly and The Tease, Flare does show some hints of attraction to Noel and girls in general. For starters, she automatically assumes an anonymous confession of potentially unrequited love between two people is between two girls without considering any other possibility, and she has both gone on multiple dates with Noel, and flirted with her excessively. And at least once has confessed about her real preference in a person, which ends up describing the knight pretty well.
  • Ambiguously Brown: Has a skin tone that resembles a light tan. It's vague enough that some fan artists can't seem to decide what her skin tone actually is, running the gamut from "almost white" to "almost black".
  • Aroused by Their Voice: She managed to do this for A-Chan and Marine by doing a sadistic Shota voice. She similarly did the same for Miko and Korone with her Shiranui Homura voice.
  • The Charmer: She could give Okayu a run for her money in this department, having successfully flustered and swooned more than a fair share of idols more than once.
  • Chick Magnet: Played for Laughs (or maybe not). There has been a number of jokes made by hololive members and fans about Flare owning a harem, and Flare herself likes to tease her peers with playful affection (often with her fellow Fantasy members, including Rushia and especially Noel). Marine has also expressed interest in Flare on a few occasions, along with Suisei in one occasion, Watame has also been swooned by her and Pekora worries that she's going to fall for her next. She is also remarkably successful in persuading Miko and Korone during the Holohost event as "Shiranui Homura". That having been said, Noel is a special case.
  • Cleavage Window: Her default outfit has one that gets covered up in her 3D model.
  • Contralto of Danger: Flare can make her voice sound much deeper and far more masculine, as proven in her stunt as "Shiranui Homura" in which she becomes a supposedly male bartender.
  • Cool Big Sis: She's described as such by more than her fair share of hololivers, being kind and dependable and comforting whenever she an be.
  • Cry Cute: Korone unintentionally induces this trope on Flare once when they have a collab in the former's home. Made more notable because neither of them nor the viewers at the time could see it coming.
  • Dark-Skinned Blond: In contrast to most of the cast and anime girls in general, Flare is notably darker-skinned and has blonde hair.
  • The Empath: In Minecraft, she once "translated" a conversation some trees were having.
  • The Gadfly: She likes to tease or bring up comments just to see a reaction from the others. She once placed rabbit skin in Pekora's chest in Minecraft, and then waited until after Pekora wrongly assumed it was Suisei and killed her before speaking up.
  • Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: She's got blonde hair, and a few hololive members have commented on her kindness as a reason many have fallen for her.
  • Half-Human Hybrid: She's stated a couple times her non-elf half is human.
  • Happily Married: Possibly Played for Laughs. But Flare and Noel have taken to claiming each other as their wives, and have even gotten pair rings with each other's name engraved in it, which their chats were quick to claim as marriage rings.
  • Has a Type: She's confessed that despite her flirting, she's a bit picky. Her type being summed up as someone who's determined, kind, a good listener but also someone she can spoil. Fittingly, this describes Noel.
  • Hidden Depths:
    • She's actually pretty good at drawing, and very occasionally holds art streams or posts sketches on her twitter.
    • Despite her flirting and being a Cool Big Sis, Noel has mentioned that Flare enjoys being pampered and acts much cuter off-camera.
    • She's managed to beat the notoriously hard boss, Sans, from Undertale a total of ''four'' times, during which she goes from dying 23 times to dying only twice against him.
  • Holding Hands: She's admitted that she and Noel have held hands before, especially when the latter's drunk.
  • Man of a Thousand Voices: While not as versatile as Kanata, she has an impressive range as shown here when she comes pretty close to copying other idols' voices and mannerisms.
  • Meganekko: When her live 2D model got an update and a new outfit, she also got some black rimmed glasses to go with them.
  • No Sense of Personal Space: Noel and Marine have both confessed a couple of times that Flare has a habit of suddenly touching people's bare legs.
  • Not So Above It All: She seems like she'd be the Only Sane Man of her group, generally being the calmest person of her group (Rushia and Noel, despite being frequently soft spoken, can get rather loud and rowdy rather quickly), she's not above teasing her peers, instigating situations, making plenty of jokes, and doing whatever seems like fun.
  • Older Than They Look: She's 221, but has the physical appearance of a 21 year old.
  • Our Elves Are Different: She's a half-elf, not a dark elf, who hails from a different world than Aki or Lamy.
  • Panda-ing to the Audience: Flare has a panda familiar named Kintsuba.
  • Playing with Fire: She's noted as being able to do fire magic.
  • Pointy Ears: As part of being an elf, she has the pointiest ears around.
  • Pyromaniac: In Minecraft, she once burned down a forest claiming it was too dense thus would cause the other members to get lost but later admitted she was just using her friends as an excuse. During said burning, she outright said she wanted to burn more after using some lava and then started to burn all the trees around her with flint and steel.
  • Really 700 Years Old: Said to be 221 years old at debut, but looks more like a 21 year old woman.
  • Refuge in Audacity: Flare actually ended up crying when she first defeats Sans due to the somber tone of his defeat and liking the character a lot. She not long after proceeds to kill him three more times.
  • Reluctant Fanservice Girl: Zigzagged. While she will show off her new outfits with pride, she feels it's embarrassing to show off her body to her viewers. Though she has no problem showing off to the rest of the third generation in her 3D debut.
  • She's Got Legs: Well, it's technically one leg that's exposed but it is showcased quite well in her 3D debut, as Noel can attest to. On the flipside, she's been noted by her fellow hololivers that she appreciates this aspect of the women around her.
  • Straight Man: Compared to her hololive Fantasy peers, she's a (relatively) normal girl. Part of the humor involving her usually comes down to how she reacts when placed in strange events or to the eccentricities of her peers; that being said, she is not without her quirks and is quite The Tease.
  • The Tease: Mostly to Noel, with whom she shares a Romantic Two-Girl Friendship with. However, she won't miss any opportunity to do it with anyone else if it comes up. She does this so often that it's often joked by fans and hololivers alike that she has a constantly growing harem.
  • Token Minority: She's the only dark-skinned member of all of Hololive's Japanese branch.
  • Who Wears Short Shorts?: Flare actually wears tight shorts under her robe. While this isn't usually visible due to the framing of her avatar for streaming, this is clearly visible in her 3D debut.

    Noel Shirogane 

Shirogane Noel; Danchou; Kurogane (Ikebo Persona) [JP: 白銀ノエル; CN: 白银诺艾尔]

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/noel_pic.png
"Konban-muscle!!"

Debut date: August 8th, 2019
Birthday: November 24th
Height: 158 cm
Fanbase name: Shirogane kishi-dan (白銀騎士団 Translation ).
Illustrator: Watao

  • Achilles' Heel: The Beauty Mark on her chest. In one stream, Noel (jokingly) claimed that if someone were to touch it, her body would spontaneously explode, Fist of the North Star-style.
  • Ambiguously Gay: While Flare is harder to tell due to her status as both The Gadfly and The Tease, Noel has shown much stronger hints of attraction to the elf, such as getting her nightwear so that she could look at her cleavage, being surprisingly upset when grass obscures Flare's face during her 3D debut, and confessing that she's felt possessive of Flare to the the point that she feels jealous when the former's collabing with other girls offline among many, many, MANY other examples. She's even confessed that she skipped out on telling Flare about her and Watame's collab in a manner that comes off as a jealous spouse trying to make their partner feel the same.
  • ASMR Video: One of the idols who more prominently produce this type of content, similarly to Rushia, it's more for a calming experience than an erotic one and her ASMR work is something she holds pride in.
  • Beauty Mark: She has a mole on her chest that she's quite proud of.
  • Berserk Button: When she tries to get on top of Flare after getting her new 3D model note , the stage's grass setting obscures Flare's model pretty thoroughly, stopping her cold and yelling in frustration about the situation.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Noel is considered by many to be a sweet, kind person. However, she's not afraid to unleash a verbal smackdown or a scathing comment when she feels like it.
  • Big Breast Pride: She's very proud of her Gag Boobs, well aware of the draw they have with hololivers offline and her assets of her avatar.
  • Big Brother Worship: She's called herself a brocon multiple times. She said it started when there was a popular toy at the time that their family couldn't afford so her brother found it in the trash and brought it back for her since then she's admired him.
  • Big Eater: When asked to draw her preferred portion of rice, she drew the portion so big it went off screen. Her loading screen depicts her eating bowl after bowl of rice. And finally, her 3D debut ended with her eating an absurdly big bowl of food which she eagerly dug into.
  • Butt-Monkey: If it's not Marine getting this trope, then Noel is certainly next in line, as she is often the target for pranks, jokes about her breasts and her fellow gen members won't hesitate to get on her case for her lack of skill in Mario Kart.
  • Carry a Big Stick: Wields a one-handed mace as part of her knight background.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: Not apparent in her earliest streams, but she is one for Flare. On several occasions, such as in Rushia's 200,000 subscribers celebration event, Noel has expressed annoyance or bafflement when any of the other Fantasy members so much as speaks to Flare in a flirtatious manner, and at another occasion actually says "give back Flare" when she thinks Rushia is trying to flirt with Flare.
  • Cloud Cuckoolander:
  • Contralto of Danger:
  • Covert Pervert:
    • While she seems innocent and pure as benefiting the virtues of a knight, she's actually admitted giving Flare oversized nightwear so she could see some of her cleavage.
    • She had admitted in her meme review with Coco that she has a folder with lewd art on her computer. Coco already figures out who could be in that folder.
    • On her English-learning streams, her mind tends to go straight into the gutter if she misreads certain words in a way that makes them sound similar to actual sexual terms. Many of her viewers usually attribute this to her being friends with a certain cosplaying boomer pirate, whose influences seem to have rubbed off on her.
  • Cute Clumsy Girl: She's noted to be quite clumsy, nearly tripping in her admittedly messy room a few times.
  • Determinator: She's very determined to do things she sets out to do, even if she doesn't want to. An example of this being when she races Pekora in Getting Over It, she suffers a massive loss after having a considerable lead over the former. While she never quite catches up to Pekora (even with her taking a few breaks), she tries her best until the very end. And despite hating horror games, she plays one until it gets to the point she can't.
  • Embarrassing Nickname: Her grade school classmates used to call her a "running titty cow" and "gorilla" for her Gag Boobs and Big Eater tendences, respectively.
  • Entertainingly Wrong: During a race with Pekora in Getting Over It, she states on her stream that she believes the latter won't do any sort of trickery and it'll be an honor-filled commitment. Needless to say, Pekora ended up using psychological warfare to make Noel ultimately lose the lead she had which she never regains.
  • Extreme Omnivore: Has made a few comments about wanting to eat Kiara and Gura due to the fact they remind her of chicken and sea food, as well as wanting to eat mythical creatures in general. She also once ate Pekora's viewers.
  • Fashionable Asymmetry: Noel wears most of her armor on the left side of her body, leaving her right unprotected. And it also extends beyond just being fashionable, as according to one stream, it's because it's the side that she supposedly uses to brace and block attacks in combat while wielding her mace.
  • Gag Boobs: As she puts it, she's a "knight cup". According to the other members, this is true of her actress as well.
  • Gainaxing: As a result of her large bust, there is a decent amount of jiggling whenever she moves her character model. It becomes even more noticeable when her 3D model is on screen, where the Marine-level of Jiggle Physics is just distracting.
  • Girls Are Really Scared of Horror Movies: To her own admission, she's awful with horror and says she'd probably pee herself when it comes to VR horror games. When she loses a bet with Pekora and has to play one in VR, she spends almost all of it screaming and anxious.
  • Happily Married: Possibly Played for Laughs. But Flare and Noel have taken to claiming each other as their wives, and have even gotten pair rings with each other's name engraved in it, which their chats were quick to claim as marriage rings.
  • Hidden Depths: CloudCuckoolander tendencies aside, during the very first hololive JP Among Us collab, Noel proved not only is she frighteningly competent at playing impostor but also she has amazing deductive skills during meetings as a crewmate.
  • Hot-Blooded: Despite her calming "onee-chan" persona she puts on often, she can get fired up and passionate about things in the blink of an eye.
  • Hypocritical Humour: She's quite quick to call out when Marine is being perverted, but she herself is just as perverted, though she's simply more quiet about it compared to the pirate.
  • I'm a Humanitarian: Played for Laughs. She's more than once claimed she was going to eat someone, voiced a desire to eat some of hololive's EN branch and has stated that if Marine and Flare cheat on her, she's going to eat them.
  • Innocently Insensitive: She occasionally falls into this when she teases Aqua about her height as she suffers from Height Angst, best shown here.
  • Meganekko: Noel's fourth outfit gives her a pair of round-framed glasses.
  • Muscles Are Meaningless: She's got no more visible muscle than any of her other idols, but she's consistently portrayed as physically one of the strongest in the cast, if not the strongest. This is driven home in rather epic fashion in the Hololive Alternative PV where she grabs dragon-form Coco by the tail and swings her so hard she launches her into the stratosphere.
  • Nice Girl: She's notoriously nice, as seen here, she assumes Pekora was bored and wanted attention, so she takes breaks from her own construction project during her stream to entertain her. Humorously, Pekora was trying to cause mischief and failed to do so, causing her to lament after the attempt that Noel was too nice to her.
  • Ornamental Weapon: Her mace. Although it's supposedly part of her knight gear, considering the entirely pacifistic nature of her current employment, it doesn't see much use, if at all.
  • OOC Is Serious Business: Noel completely loses it during the Ornstein and Smough boss battle in Dark Souls, screaming in anger so hard that she almost sounds like Matsuri at one point.
  • Self-Deprecation: She believes her voice needs a good amount of work and hired a vocal coach to help her, but her fans certainly enjoy when she sings none the less. Humorously, when she had done a concert with Mio, her coach praised the latter's singing, which brought her some distress.
  • Single-Target Sexuality: In comparison to the rest of hololive Fantasy, who have all teased/flirted/hinted at possible attraction with at least a couple people, Noel seems to only have eyes for Flare.
  • Sitcom Archnemesis: Her relationship with Pekora.
    • It started with Pekora using psychological warfare during a Getting Over It race, causing Noel to lose her composure, rush her ascent, and make several mistakes that cost her the race. Pekora also decided that the penalty is to play a VR horror game, the notion of which frightened Noel and exacerbated her mistakes. Since then, It's Personal whenever Pekora gets mentioned.
    • During the Among Us collab, their practice run involved Pekora trying to single out Noel, only for Noel to turn the tables and vote off Pekora instead. In the final game of the session, it's down to Noel and Pekora practically arguing as they accuse the other of being the Impostor, with poor Nene, who has to cast the deciding vote, getting caught in the crossfire.
  • Skyward Scream: She once accidently killed Flare when trying to defend her in Minecraft, cue her screaming to the heavens in regret.
  • Suddenly SHOUTING!: Unlike the likes of Rushia and Suisei, who usually start screaming at the top of their lungs as soon as shit hits the fan, Noel's brand of rage has her bursting into thunderous fits of shouting mid-sentence instead.
  • Top-Heavy Guy: Girl. While this isn't very noticeable from the portrait framing of her stream avatar, on the occasion that her entire character model is shown, one can see that her legs and thighs are rather slim and nowhere near as muscular as her torso and shoulders would have you believe. Add her Knight cups on top of that, and now you see the problem.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Loves gyuudon (beef over rice).
  • Trash of the Titans: Her room is dirty enough that simple tasks like charging her phone become daunting due to tripping over trash.
  • The Unmasking: One of her old real life friends figured out who she was just by her singing voice.
  • Weapon of Choice: A mace, which she is commonly depicted with.
  • Yandere: Played for Laughs. Once, Noel calls Flare in the midst of stream, and declares she has eaten Marine whole because Flare was waiting for Marine.

Welcome, to my ship!


  • 100% Adoration Rating: Despite how intimidated some of the other idols can get because of Marine's horniness, they all say that they like and admire her regardless.
  • Abhorrent Admirer:
    • Subverted actually. While Marine did the same copypasta for Rushia in her debut that Matsuri did for Fubuki, Rushia does return Marine's affections from time to time and are regularly shown to be close, whether it being flirting, giving kisses, or generally just following her lead.
    • Played straight with other hololivers however, as her habit of making innuendos or attempting to tease them often gets met with joking disgust and otherwise pushed away though that doesn't stop her from saying such things regardless. Also subverted for Flare, who doesn't mind the flirtations and goes along with it without any trouble.
  • Ambiguously Bi: She talks about how she went to a Christian girls' school and explains how in such a setting all girls become lesbians. She also claims to not be a lesbian anymore, but her actions speak a different story...
  • Affectionate Nickname: Occasionally called "Maririn" by her friends, most commonly by Pekora.
  • Aggressive Submissive: She's described herself as a seducing submissive, and she's certainly shown this time and time again.
  • Amnesiac Hero: Her backstory involves her losing her memory at some point, which is why she turned from an extremely young Harvard graduate and former productive employee; to a pirate captain; and finally a pirate captain who mostly just does streaming nowadays.
  • Aren't You Going to Ravish Me?:
    • In her 3D debut, she's subject to being forced to the ground by Rushia. note  Due to Marine's enthusiasm for the situation, Rushia backs out, prompting Marine to beg her to not leave.
    • Done again in this MMD skit on her channel, with a point of view of someone opening a door just to see her tied up. And then they proceed to walk out.
      Marine: What are you planning to do with me?
      [Beat], followed by the camera moving away from her
      Marine: ...H-hey, where are you going? You can have your way with me, you know!
  • Bare Your Midriff: Though her default outfit has her midriff technically covered up by a see-through fabric, it counts as this.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Although Marine tends to be one of the more laid-back members of Gen 3, her anger is quite something to behold if her Berserk Button is pushed. As Marine herself admits, when she's sufficiently pissed off, she will seethe for hours if not relieved, and items within her reach tend to be in danger of getting smashed. In fact, her favorite way to relieve stress in the past was to jump up and then landing on her bed with extreme impact, since she couldn't shout it out loud due to her old apartment having poor soundproofing. It is because of her nasty temper that Marine almost never shows her anger to anyone, and Flare is incredulous to learn of this, having never seen her getting that upset before.
  • Blatant Lies: Whenever she gets called out on her Improbable Age, she resorts to these, such as claiming to have graduated from Harvard at the age of 3 or that she turned "17, season 2" on her first birthday stream.
  • Broken Pedestal: Played for laughs. Early into her career, her manager once told her that she should take example on Akai Haato to learn what a true idol is like. As time went on, that idea went... places, to put it mildly.
  • Butt-Monkey: She's often the punching bag of jokes whether it be about her age, her poses, her lack of stamina, or her sexual enthusiasm. Seeing how it's all in good fun, she takes it in stride.
  • Catchphrase:
    • "Ahoy!"
    • "I'm Horny!" Especially ever since she was taught this line by Coco.
  • Casual Kink: She's mentioned a few times she'd like a suck on a girl's breasts, and wouldn't mind if a girl wanted to do the same for her.
  • Contralto of Danger: While her normal voice is very high-pitched, she can drop her pitch down low, as demonstrated when singing the cover to "Bloody Stream" from JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, and in a Holo no Graffiti skit.
  • *Crack!* "Oh, My Back!": The "In Search of Maid-ness" Hologra short has Marine trying to persuade Aqua into doing something befitting of a maid, but the best Aqua comes up with is getting on all fours on a walking globe, to which Marine mocks. At Aqua's insistence, Marine tries to get on the walking globe even though she's actually never done it before, but falls flat on her butt. Aqua laughs, but is flabbergasted when Marine can't get up and tells her that she heard a crack.
  • Declaration of Protection: She's said that after meeting Pekora for the first time in person and seeing just how much of a Shrinking Violet she was, that she feels a strong compulsion to protect her. It's apparently so strong that she openly says she misses how much Pekora was dependent on her, albeit jokingly.
  • Destination Defenestration: One short video has her pose and declare that she's horny before getting thrown out the window.
  • Determinator: When she was playing Rhythm Tengoku and wasn't performing well, someone in the chat said that she should probably quit. She replied with a question, "Do you walk away when things get difficult?" and recounts that she joined the swimming club when she was in school despite not knowing how to swim, but that was the point: She went there to learn how to be good at it and eventually did.
  • Dirty Old Man: Her father is quite perverted, if Marine's many stories of him are to be believed, with him allegedly visiting sketchy sites using the family PC, and she had even found some of his Porn Stashes around the house when she was young. Marine herself is no slouch in this department, though, considering most of the other tropes in this section.
  • Elegant Gothic Lolita: Her third outfit is a Rozen Maiden inspired red and black dress with her eyepatch emblem reflecting the change by including a half rose along with the half heart.
  • Engrish: She sometimes uses English words from her college days, but extremely poorly. It's affectionately referred to as "Maringlish". See here for a compilation from Marine herself.
  • Everyone Has Standards:
    • Even someone who is well-known to be a pervert and making sexual remarks, Marine is as opposed as Coco when Kanata first tries to say "I am horny" in English.
    • She has also stated that she would never act overly perverted towards Pekora, since she knows Pekora genuinely dislikes that kind of attention and doing so would cause her a lot of discomfort.
  • Exotic Eye Designs: Her pupils will occasionally turn into heart shapes when she's feeling particularly, erm..."excited".
  • Eyepatch of Power: As part of her gimmick, she has an eyepatch over her right eye. It actually covers the fact that she has Mismatched Eyes (her right eye is yellow). When she was asked about both the eyepatch and her yellow eye, she gave the stereotypically Chuunibyou response that she has dangerous magical powers sealed in her right eye. Humorously, her chat didn't have any of it and collectively decided that eating too much seaweed probably caused her eye to change colors.
  • Fangirl:
  • Friendly Pirate: Marine is a Pirate Girl who is very kind and friendly. She became a VTuber in order to gain enough funding to buy a real pirate ship. Aside from being excessively horny, she's one the nicest pirates you'll ever encounter.
  • Gag Boobs: One of her offline collab anecdotes has her claim this, leaving the blouse she was wearing unbuttoned at the top for breathing room. Pekora, who was there with her at the time, could only express shock at this realization, with the implication that she was jealous of Marine's bust. According to her, she's still only half as big as Noel, who accused Marine of padding her chest.
  • Gainaxing: Despite her lethargy, Marine still moves around enough to cause her considerable bust to shake quite often.
  • Girls Are Really Scared of Horror Movies: Although Marine admits to liking horror games, she's still as terrified of them as anyone else. If anything, she gets startled more easily than even Noel or Matsuri sometimes, and her screaming is...quite interesting to hear.
  • Guttural Growler: In stark contrast to her usual nasal speaking voice, once Marine's gotten worked up, her screaming sounds more similar to very deep, throaty roars instead.
  • Hot-Blooded: She's very passionate about what she's doing, and can get worked up rather easily.
  • Hidden Depths:
    • She's quite the talented artist; even if she downplays her own skill, you'd be hard pressed to find someone in hololive who doesn't admire it. She's also much more responsible than her upbeat, eccentric, and shameless attitude would indicate, as she's had comments from other idols that she's very aware of her peers, wanting to do things to make them happy and tries to keep her streams from starting at the same time as others as to not overlap.
    • Marine's known for her chatting and drawing streams, but she's no slouch at gaming either which is to be expected from such a devout Touhou fan:
  • I Just Want to Be Loved: Heavily implied this is the case, best shown here, where she laments that Shion doesn't remember what (possibly) happened during their night together, saying that "(she) hadn't been touched like that in a long time."
  • Lovable Sex Maniac: And an unashamed one for that matter.
    • In her debut stream alone, she coyly asks for those who "draw her without clothes" to use her character design sheet as reference, and then there's her Suspiciously Specific Denial comment on her own art of Matsuri and Fubuki.
      Marine: It's not like I want to beat Matsuri-senpai's butt or anything.
    • Her 3D debut has her being submissive and subject to BDSM "punishments".
    • Of course there's her general reaction to most if not all of the Azur Lane girls.
    • She also failed to maintain the persona of a grade schooler when doing a Q and A stream, instead deciding to talk about being too horny to function on several occasions, as well as listing off her favorite doujin artists, and admitting that talking about this stuff on stream had aroused her.
    • At one point she says she feels so horny she wants to sleep with other hololive girls. Also, after Inuyama Tamaki mentioned that a woman's sex drive will peak at 30, she's a bit terrified how much her sex drive will shoot up when she reaches 30 (and no, she is NOT 30 yet).
    • Her 3D collaboration with Kiryu Coco hung a big fat lampshade on her sexual nature when she, with a little help from Coco, declared loud and proud:
      Marine: I'm horny!
    • Prior to their intended stream before the Noodle Incident below, she asked Shion if she can "suck it" (as in her boobs). When asked whenever she "sucked it" before she remarks doing so when she was much younger, with her big sister. Keep in mind that she was drunk while saying all of this.
    • Both her Reddit profile picture and profile banner are erotic and were immediately flagged and censored as Not Safe for Work, and Marine tags most of her posts as Not Safe for Work even if when they aren't as a joke.
    • She asked Calliope how to ask the audience if they wanted some of her bathwater. Then later felt she had to go out of her way to clarify that the reward for the meme contest she was holding would not be her bathwater when there wasn't any confusion that bathwater would be the reward anyway.
    • One of her videos silently pans across her New Year's outfit to show that she's Going Commando.
    • Even Yagoo of all people lampshades this in a shitpost interview he did with Marine. Her response was pretty hilarious given her own self-confessed shotacon tendencies:
      Yagoo: Ahoy, Captain Marine! Thank you for your regular activities. In my personal opinion, you are a one-of-a-kind note  idol. It's just that your streams are super lewd, so I can't recommend them for children. Lol. Keep up the good work!
      Marine: I don't know what you're talking about.
  • Mad Eye: Occasionally, the iris of her left eye will shrink and move around like crazy (or both of them, whenever she streams without her eyepatch), similar to gangimari Watame. This usually happens when Marine is terrified or overly excited.
  • Me's a Crowd: Once prank called Aqua over Discord with three others impersonating her. Needless to say, Aqua was very confused.
  • Mismatched Eyes: Her right eye is yellow while her left eye is red.
  • Missing Mom: Although Marine did off-handedly mention her mother in some anecdotal stories from when she was very young, she seems to have disappeared from the life of the Houshou household altogether since. For the longest time, whenever Marine talks at length about her family, it's always just herself, her father, and her sister.
  • Motor Mouth: Her normal speaking pace is nothing short of frenetic and she is one of the fastest natural talkers across the organization.
  • Noodle Incident: Marine has illustrated a short doujinshi as to what happened the night she and Shion overslept for their stream, to which Shion has repeatedly denied any memory of while Marine has vocally insisted that it's true. While it's possible that a) Marine simply had a vivid dream, b) Shion is simply denying it for personal reasons, or c) she genuinely doesn't remember due to the fact they were both drinking heavily, they have both agreed to move past it and pretend it didn't happen.
  • No Pronunciation Guide: Is her given name supposed to be pronounced according to how it's written and pronounced in Japanese ("MUH-rin") or like the English word she is presumably named after ("muh-REEN")?
  • No Sense of Personal Space: Played for laughs. Like Matsuri, Marine tends to be rather touchy-feely with her fellow talents, up to and including trying to forcefully grab and kiss them. Unlike Matsuri, however, Marine usually asks first, and will back down at the first hint of genuine discomfort from the other person, unless it's for a skit.
  • Older Than They Look:
    • Heavily implied that she's much older than her alleged age of 17. She has gone to Harvard, has worked several years in an (unfortunately abusive) company, and the official channel lampshaded it when they said one of her karaoke streams was filled with old classics any 17-year-old would know. And there was that one time she accidentally revealed to be in her 20's
    • On the other end of the scale, she claims to be frequently mistaken for a young girl and gives an anecdote of a dentist visit where she was led to wait at the children's seats.
  • OOC Is Serious Business: In November 2020, nearing the end of one of her singing streams, she admits, In Gratuitous English, that she's not horny anymore and that her libido has been drying up. She notes in her native language that she isn't lying and that she won't even find the urge to read her erotic books. It's been suggested her busy schedule and a passing illness being the reason why she ended up like this.
  • Picky Eater: She can't eat anything "weird" or she'll cry. As Noel and Flare have both noted.
  • A Pirate 400 Years Too Late: She dresses like a traditional pirate even though she's in a modern age of internet and computers.
  • Pirate Girl: This is her main shtick, although, in practice, she's really just Dressed to Plunder and is considered by the others to be a cosplayer.
  • The Pirates Who Don't Do Anything: As she herself has admitted many times, she is a pirate without a ship, and so she has no way to do the things that pirates are most known for doing.
  • Promoted Fangirl:
    • Since Marine's introduction she has gotten the privilege to work with projects that she had grown up enjoying, more so than the other members: she's worked with several prominent Touhou Project remixers in order to produce a remix album as well as an image song and animation for herself, and has been brought on as a brand ambassador for a Sakura Wars mobile game.
    • She has also been brought on as a brand ambassador for Sakura Wars, another franchise she grew up with. She has discussed multiple times that after the initial reveal stream, that she started crying Tears of Joy when realizing that she was now able to be a part of something she's loved for most of her life.
  • Rage Breaking Point: In an anime short with her, Suisei, Coco, Pekora, and Fubuki, she was building a ship in a bottle when Suisei and Coco comes across her. When they were making too much noise, she warns them that she'll get angry if they make too much noise again. When Coco was about to sneeze, Suisei covers her mouth until Pekora does so, and Marine reached her breaking point. When Fubuki enters the room, she sees the girls in a giant bottle with Marine sitting on top of it.
  • The Reliable One: Despite what one may think, she's described by many Vtubers as very kind, mindful of others and a person they can rely on who can take the lead when needed.
  • Rule of Funny: She has stated that her goal is to make people laugh, and she intentionally filled her own theme with silly lyrics for this purpose.
  • Scary Teeth: Marine's 3D model notably distinctly sharp teeth that are shown when she opens her mouth, albeit they're not to the degree of Gura's, which are actual shark teeth.
  • Self-Deprecation:
  • Shameless Fanservice Girl: Marine has absolutely no problem playing up fanservice for her viewers or other vtubers.
  • Shipper on Deck: Presumably for Noel and Flare, considering she's said it's her favorite relationship and once cried over some sad fan art she saw of the two. That said, she won't hesitate to make a move on Flare or Noel.
  • Single-Target Sexuality: Downplayed, because Marine is still, well, Marine, but she seems to be the closest and most genuine towards Pekora out of all of the talents that she has flirted with. She has admitted on-stream to feeling hot and bothered by many of the things Pekora did, and if they're in the same sleepover party together, Marine will usually invite Pekora to take a bath or sleep with her and leave the others alone. Whereas Marine's interactions with the other talents usually stop at being playful, the amount of affection she regularly proclaims to have for Pekora really makes one wonder.
  • Situational Sexuality: She started crushing on other girls back when she went to an all girls school, though she claims it was just a phase due to the environment.
  • Skewed Priorities:
    • When Marine's tricked by Aqua into entering a prison-cell styled room in the AquaMarine ship and straight up held captive with nothing but milk, bread, and an R-18+ doujinshi, the thing that really irks her is the fact that the book titled "R-18+ Doujinshi" is actually completely blank and insists she draw or write something in it to warrant the rating, which completely flabbergasts Aqua.
    • Even worse, Marine legitimately bought an R-18+ doujinshi IRL and presented it to Aqua (with Shion as the witness) as "inspiration" for when she gets to draw her own. Aqua was predictably completely embarrassed, much to Shion and Marine's amusement.
  • Skull Cups: She has a cartoony-looking one by her side in her streams. It's apparently made of gold, even.
  • Sucks at Dancing: Apparently. Matsuri even bluntly asks her if she's 40 years old after seeing how she dances. Her lack of stamina certainly doesn't help anything.
  • Super Drowning Skills: Parodied. During her 3D debut Marine acts as if she's viciously drowning despite her feet touching the ground while the rest of Fantasy simply laugh and watch.
  • Surprisingly Good English:
    • Despite her reputation for speaking in heavily accented and nearly incomprehensible English, her Reddit posts fall under this. Normally all the girls can use some proper English (although some words may be out of order) when posting, but Marine's degree of fluency and knowledge of proper syntax as well as understanding English slang has been noted by some ESL fans from other parts of Asia to be considered "mute English." Explanation 
    • Her meme review with Coco on 8 January 2021 also demonstrated that she has improved markedly over the past few months in her speaking capacity. This seems likely due to the fact that she's been trying to reach out to her oversees viewers note .
  • The Team Normal: She's a pirate without a pirate ship, which essentially makes her a cosplayer as she and other vtubers have repeatedly made note of. She's more explicitly this in her generation, which otherwise contains three non-humans with abilities both magical and physical, that humans could not have, and one human knight who's far stronger than the others.
  • The Heart: Underneath the lewd comedian, she's very kind and generous to the other girls in Hololive, especially the ones that are shy/lacking in self-confidence. She essentially took Pekora under her wing for some time after Pekora's debut, apparently treats Aqua much the same and has been slowly encouraging Ayame to open up to her. She's also moved her stream times on multiple occasions so as to not conflict with others' streams.
  • The Tease: A much more explicit one than normal, Marine will hardly pass up an opportunity to flirt or make sexually suggestive remarks when she deems fit, although she won't flirt with people she knows will be genuinely uncomfortable with it, like Pekora. Unlike most examples, this serves to intimidate and throw off her fellow idols than get the reaction she wants.
  • Time Travel: Once did a stream roleplaying as herself at the age of 78, claiming that she time traveled to our present. She's apparently actually a pirate in her timeline.
  • Too Kinky to Torture:
    • For her 3D debut, Coco ends up restraining her hands and hitting her butt with a bat so that she may learn to repent for her "sins". While she does end up repenting, she makes a few comments that the frequent hits to her butt was becoming enjoyable when the pain was balanced out.
    • Later than that, Rushia had wanted revenge for having the former lay down and Marine attempt to get on top of her, only for Marine to welcome the development and Rushia to call it off due to her excitement.
  • Too Spicy for Yog-Sothoth: An interesting take, while hololivers and vtubers in general are not unaccustomed to playful flirtations for extended periods of time, Marine's flirtations tend to come on as very strong and often perverted which plays a part in their rejection of her so frequently.
  • Totally Radical: Marine asked someone, later confirmed to be Calliope, to teach her some phrases she could say in English, and Calli being a fellow boomer, taught her some extremely outdated English slang. (Along with teaching her to ask the audience if they wanted her bathwater which Calli was too embarrassed to say, and insisted that Marine was the one who wanted to know how to say that). Afterward, when she joined the /r/hololive subreddit, her bio was littered with words like "based", "lit", "dope", and similar.
  • Tranquil Fury: As poor Aqua learns the hard way, Marine wasn't angry at her for fooling her into coming in a detailed room only to fall through a fake floor with a small prison. She was livid when the only thing Aqua provided her was food and a book that says "Doujinshi 18" with no lewd material in it. Her fury was so intense, Aqua begins cowering in fear.
  • Transparent Closet: For someone who claims that their attraction to girls was just a phase, she certainly makes it known that if any vtuber were to return her affections, she'd be on them in a heartbeat. With the exception of Luna, of course. Perhaps most tellingly, after her Noodle Incident with Shion, she's admittedly very caught up in her feelings over what (possibly) happened, and is noticably disappointed after they make an agreement to not talk about it anymore.
  • Vague Age: Although Marine insists that she's 17, one can make an educated estimation of her actual age through some of the breadcrumbs she dropped in her livestreams, specifically by matching the release dates of the games and anime that inspired her old artworks with her school grades at the time of them coming out in Japan, to be about 28-29 at the time of writing, give or take one or two years.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: With Pekora, any time the two are pitted against each other in any sort of competition will resort in taunts and insults flying between them until a victor is decided and then some, but the two are quite close and comfortable with one another.
  • Wicked Heart Symbol: The symbol of the Houshou Pirates, a two-toned heart with an arrow piercing through, shows up on her costumes and pirate ship.
  • 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.
  • Yaoi Fangirl: She's admitted to drawing and reading BL manga in her spare time.
