Kagamine Rin

"Don't stagger; just for today, it's our Sunday"

A Vocaloid girl attending Junior High with Kagamine Len and Hatsune Miku; she’s an extreme Russian nerd and secretly is a reincarnation of a girl who lived in Russia. From before and after her memories of this time return, she has a growing relationship with Len as she tries to get his attention and love.

  • Berserk Button: Being rejected by Len has a tendency to actually bring out the homicidal Red Rin. Outside of that she does not take kindly to being compared to Miku.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Her past life in Russia, the source of the conflict.
  • Even the Girls Want Her: In her broadcasted song "Assassin!" she was dressed so cute that even Miku got a nosebleed from it.
  • Tearful Smile: Her existence fades out in the Data World while she smiles, tears coming down from her blank eyes.
  • Irony: She's noted as having eyes "which don't vanish." The final shot of her exiting song is of her face with eyes completely white, vanished with all her data.
  • Otaku: Rin is an Otaku for Russia, and Vladimir Putin in particular, because of her past.
  • Please Don't Leave Me: "Don't leave me" is one of her arc phrases, seemingly directed at Len. Sometimes she repeats it over and over and over.
  • Reincarnation: In her past life, she was a soldier in Russia, a child named Irina. Or rather, that was what she was originally programmed to remember.
  • Ridiculously Human Robots: She's a computer program, but she also can get high on weed, eat food, etc.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: She's ridiculously jealous and clingy to Len, especially early on and especially towards Miku—since Len has a huge crush on Miku, that part of her jealous is at least justified.
  • Verbal Tic: Often makes a catlike "nya"note  at the end of her sentences.

Kagamine Len

"The mirror that bewitches me with what I wanted to see."

A Vocaloid boy attending Junior High with Kagamine Rin and Hatsune Miku; although having a male lover and entertaining a crush on Miku, he actually cares the most for Rin and secretly had a previous life in Russia with her. His relationship with Rin slowly grows over the series, especially when he gets his memories back by accident.

  • Cannot Spit It Out: In all the series he's unable to tell Rin that he loves her. The final song has him telling it to a blank slate Rin who is just confused by it, and the subtitles leave out the actual word while leaving the quotes.
  • Character Development: He starts as a ditzy and sometimes selfish stoner who's hung up on Miku and playing around with Rin. He becomes conflicted in all these respects as a result of his memories returning and everything that happens afterwards, before finally maturing and resolving to keep going and be strong even if he can't be with Rin or Miku anymore.
  • It's All My Fault: When his memories come back he realizes what role he had in their past lives and so blames himself for Irina's death. He does this kind of thing again when he blames himself for Irina vanishing, but this time he really was the cause.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: Immediately after he gives Rin back her memories as Irina he has crippling doubts about what will happen to her now and regrets bringing back such painful experiences.
  • Reincarnation: In Russia, he was Irina's pet dog. Or, rather, he was programmed to have the dog's memories.
  • Ridiculously Human Robots: He's a computer program, but he also can get high on weed, eat food, etc.
  • Sticky Fingers: He has a habit of pickpocketing and stealing; on two occasions it gets him and Rin into serious trouble, once in his past life when he stole Irina's comrade's scarf and a second time when he stole what he thought was Rin's bag but was actually their uploader's.
  • Unwitting Instigator of Doom: He is the one responsible for Rin regaining her memories, getting them back because he missed the old her. This caused pretty much all the problems that happened afterwards.
  • What Measure Is a Non-Human?: One of his conflicts as he comes to terms of his past life as a pet dog.

Hatsune Miku

"I want to meet you in a world like nothing I've seen."

A Vocaloid teen idol; despite being sixteen, she was held back and so also attends Junior High with Kagamine Rin and Len. She has a developing relationship with Ronald McDonald through the series and has a rocky friendship with the Kagamines.

  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Although loved by everyone as a docile and sweet idol she's quite nasty to Rin in the beginning, even if they have some touching moments. She's also pretty rude during "Don't Interfere, Okay?".
  • Break the Haughty: Losing the love of her life makes her go downhill pretty fast after she was such a popular idol. Exemplified in her song "The One Who's Nothing."
  • Dark and Troubled Past: She once lived in Russia too, and lived with an assassin until they separated for unknown reasons—this separation caused her a lot of pain.
  • "I Am" Song: "The One Who's Nothing." A tragic example where she defines herself as being worthless compared to the other more significant cast members and shows her deep insecurities.
  • I Choose to Stay: She stays behind in the data world in order to be with her beloved, forever "sleeping" in the real world.
  • Ms. Exposition: She provides a lot of the essential plot details in successively less cryptic bouts of exposition. Reaches a peak in "A Place to Chat!", which is almost entirely her explaining everything to Len.
  • Mysterious Past: Like the other characters she also has a past in Russia, as the Vocaloid used by Urusei Teppannov; this partially why she was able to find out as much as she did about the other Vocaloids.
  • Stab the Scorpion: A variant; in "Don't Interfere, Okay?" it looks like she shoots Len as he's trying to reach Rin, and then shoots Rin afterwards. She actually shot a USB port into both their headphones so they'd all be able to deal with everything going on inside the data world.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: French fries, since she's in love with Ronald McDonald.

Camui Gackpo

"Because this time I'll erase you lol"

Seemingly the Vocaloid Camui Gackpo, although he uses different coloration and has a much more malevolent role in the series than just singing songs. He also had a past life in Russia and antagonizes the protagonists, Len in particular, in the latter part of the series.

  • Dark Is Evil: He's one of the cruelest characters and a main antagonist and wears a jet black coat; notably his hair is also black, unlike the Vocaloid he's based on.
  • Evil Counterpart: Fitting how his songs often square them against each other, he's one for Len. In the past he was Irina's comrade, who has also incarnated as a Vocaloid, who looks like Kagamine Len.
  • Firing One-Handed: He takes aim with one hand; since he's not even human it probably isn't more difficult, but it backfires in "Farewell to the Dream" when Len kicks the gun up and away from Rin.
  • Not So Different: He believes that he and Irina/Rin are both the same as having been soldiers for Putin.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: During "The Other Side of the Mirror" Len comments on how scary his red eyes are.
  • Reincarnation: He also has a past life in Russia; in this case, he's a reincarnation of Irina’s old comrade, or so he was programmed to be.
  • LEET Speak: In subtitles he often punctuates his sentences with "w", the equivalent of "lol" in English.

"Red Rin"

A version of Rin that appears when her speech turns red, as well as whenever her eyes turn red. She's a violent and destructive character whose origins and nature are shrouded in mystery. She makes an appearance separate from the main Rin in "Who is the Liar?" once they're inside the data world.

  • The Bad Guy Wins: In a sense as Irina's data is seemingly erased just like she wanted, Red Rin being a virus. She's also still around by the series' end, unlike the normal Rin.
  • Madness Mantra: "I hate children" in the video for "Together."
  • Mysterious Past: Where exactly Red Rin came from and her relation to the normal Rin is mostly just hinted at in the series; Numtack05 himself clarifies that Red Rin is the virus that Urusei Teppanov inserted into the data version of Irina.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: Rin's eyes turning red indicate that she's switched over to Red Rin.
  • The Stinger: After the ending credits of "In Your Eyes" we see that she's still around in the blank slate Rin, making a face at the camera
  • Yandere: She acts as one towards Len.

Ronald McDonald

"Of course!"

A cultural icon symbolizing America; Ronald McDonald has various roles in the Putin_P songs, one of which is being a drug dealer, enemy of Kagamine Rin, and Hatsune Miku's love interest. He disappears halfway through the series, much to Miku's despair.

  • Dissonant Serenity: Even Miku wonders why he laughs at things that aren't actually funny.
  • Evil Red Head: He's mostly evil to Rin, but has apparently done bad things in the past and has a red afro.
  • False Friend: He was this to Len at some point, tricking him for his own purposes.
  • Giggling Villain: He laughs a lot where making Rin miserable or attacking her is concerned, although he tends to laugh at a lot of things.
  • Not Quite Dead: Rin and Len kill and bury him, only for him to show up in the next song, to their surprise.
    • This also applies to this actual disappearance, where he still exists as a small fragment of his programming on a USB drive.

    Characters from the Russian Era 

"I alone could become Putin's right-hand woman."

A small dog that was found in an alleyway by Irina. He grew to love her as she took care of him, but being a dog was not terribly bright and caused a lot of problems.

Irina's Comrade

A boy Irina knows who also works for Putin as an agent and does multiple atrocities under his command. He's entrusted with her dog when she's away, which turns out to have not been a very good idea. He has the appearance of Kagamine Len. Irina's dog knows him as a "brat".

  • Kids Are Cruel: He shot Irina's dog for sport and laughed about it, while the other kids in his group cheered.
  • Kick the Dog: He's the one who shoots Irina's dog.
  • Reincarnation: After his death, he's eventually uploaded into Camui Gackpo; or rather, a program that was made to have all the boy's memories and personality was.

"I'll make the most of it, I'll stir the people."

A woman who grew up in Russia and works for Putin there, as well as Urusei Teppannov's friend. She was also present during the time that Irina worked for Putin. Becoming disillusioned with her superior's regime after Irina's death, she seeks to make known the story of Irina's suicide and spreads it around the web.

  • All Love Is Unrequited: She loves Vladimir Putin, i.e. the Greater-Scope Villain of the series. No it doesn't work out.
  • The Atoner: Although once she happily worked as an agent for Putin, pretending not to see the harm done to the people, Irina's suicide causes her to be unable to look away anymore.
  • Childhood Friends: She was friends with Teppannov when they were children.
  • Driven to Suicide: The end of her arc. She can no longer live with what she's seen and done and kills herself with a drug overdose.
  • Master of Disguise: She's able to disguise her identity quite well; it just doesn't fool Teppannov.
  • Ms. Fanservice: Portrayed by the tall and busty Luka, starting off in a uniform that has a short skirt and stockings up to her thighs, and then later appearing in another song tanned, blonde, and wearing a skimpy bikini.
  • Truly Single Parent: She and others liken her to a "parent" for the the data files of the boy, dog, and Irina, as she created them.
  • Victoria's Secret Compartment: She pulls a gun from her tiny bikini top when being pursued by Teppanov.

An assassin of Japanese descent who was sent to kill Elena when she betrayed Putin's regime.

  • All Love Is Unrequited: He loves Elena, but she loves Putin.
  • Childhood Friends: With Elena, when he was young.
  • Heel–Face Turn: He decides to stop "living like a machine" and make a new start with Elena. When that doesn't work out he resolves to assassinate Putin to end all the pain he caused.
  • Hidden Depths: The scary assassin working for Putin in Russia is a VOCALOID producer who can't speak Russian well because he spent all his time practicing the guitar.
  • In Love with the Mark: Over the course of trying to catch her, he'd come to love Elena. Her being his long lost childhood friend helps.
  • Punny Name: The name Urusei is derived from the Japanese slang "urusee", which means "shut up", and Teppanov is a pun on Teppu-P, the real life VOCALOID producer on whom he is based.
  • Suicide by Cop: According to Numtack05, this is in part why he approached Putin, who was flanked by two bodyguards, to kill him by himself with a short range gun.


"Don't care☆"

Otherwise Vladimir Putin, the current Prime Minister of Russia like his real life counterpart. Under his leadership, the protagonists and several other agents carried out numerous atrocities and suffered intense fallout in their later lives as a result. Although not appearing directly in any of the songs he remains a presence in the series.

  • Bald of Evil: Has that appearance since his hair is cut so short.
  • Broken Pedestal: Most of the characters in the story loved and believed in him, but soon become disillusioned with his regime.
  • Lack of Empathy: As he admits himself, he doesn't care about Elena at all even though she loved him, and merely waves to Teppanov while the man is dying of a gunshot wound. That's not even all he's done as Prime Minister.
  • No Celebrities Were Harmed: This Putin of course isn't the same as the real Putin, or at least as claimed by the creator.
  • Would Hurt a Child: During the course of his political career he had many children brainwashed and exploited.
