VIPPERloids are a line of UTAUloids created by the denizens of vip@2ch. Initially they were made to fool people into believing that a new Vocaloid was being released, but after the failure (or was it success?) of Ruko, they have moved on to general trolling.

Teto Kasane

Ruko Yokune

  • Ambiguous Gender Identity: We know for sure that Ruko is intersex, but what gender identity she aligns with is unclear. It's generally assumed that she identifies as female since she has a feminine appearance and is canonically referred to with feminine pronouns, but some go along with her being a male crossdresser among the lines of Ritsu as her sex is mostly male. There's even some interpretations of her identifying as nonbinary, such as in Problems AU.
  • And I Must Scream: Her cameo in Kagome Kagome suggests that they're still alive even after getting her head chopped off.
  • C-List Fodder: Surprisingly for a Vocaloid-sung video, both of the "April Fool's" UTAU characters show up in the video for Kagome Kagome. Unlike Teto though, who has no solid role past 'extra', Ruko exists in the video solely to get decapitated.
  • Duality Motif: It's subtle, but there's certain elements in her design that imply a dual nature, in reference to her sex; for example, she has Mismatched Eyes, with one being red and the other blue, a glove on her left hand but not the other, and Girlish Pigtails.
  • Fashionable Asymmetry: Downplayed; she has a glove on her left hand, while her right hand is bare.
  • Gentle Giant: She's basically the personification of this trope, with her deredere personality.
  • Girlish Pigtails: These makes her appear more feminine, as well as hinting at her duality as a hermaphrodite.
  • Hermaphrodite: Is said to be "90% male and 10% female". She looks pretty feminine though, and her bio uses female pronouns.
  • Meaningful Name: Yokune Ruko = yoku neru ko = "girl who sleeps well(or often)". "Yokune" also means "greedy sound", which is a reference to having both male and female voicebanks.
  • Mismatched Eyes: Has one red eye and one blue.
  • Sleepy Head: She is known to be very drowsy most of the time. It's also a possible cause of her unusual height due to a Japanese proverb that says 寝る子は育つ (neru ko wa sodatsu), which means that "A child who sleeps a lot grows up greatly."
  • Statuesque Stunner: Her height is 6'5" ft (197 cm). She's also described as being romantic.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Coffee.
  • Younger Than They Look: Ruko is 12 years old officially, but looks like she could be in her early twenties. Strangely, her official birthday is November 17, 1989, so she technically could've been 19 at the time of her release (November 17, 2008).

Ritsu Namine

  • Affectionate Parody: Supposedly, his bio was intentionally made ridiculous to poke fun at some of the more interesting UTAU character bios out there. Not that this stops some fans from defending it as a canon fact.
  • Ambiguous Gender: Because it's unknown how much of his bio is meant to be taken seriously, there is the distinct possibility that Ritsu isn't a crossdressing boy at all, but actually a girl. Given his in-universe portrayal as something of a Troll, however, it could go either way.
  • Ambiguous Gender Identity: In addition to a good chunk of his profile being a joke, thus it being unknown how much of it is supposed to be taken seriously, his gender is described as "okama", which is a slang term for feminine gay men, drag queens, or transgender women, but it's unclear which applies to him. Word of God states his gender identity is up for interpretation, however.
  • Elegant Gothic Lolita: Sorta.
  • Fake Boobs: His boobs are actually missiles.
  • Jerkass: He's described as a bully.
  • Poe's Law: Despite the fact that his profile is obviously not supposed be taken seriously, and there's even a (supposed) rumor going around the net that his creator deliberately made the bio to be as ridiculous as possible in an attempt to make UTAU fans focus less on the character and more on the music, there are quite a few UTAU fans who will viciously defend the fact that he is supposed to be a six year old, 25-ton crossdresser who pads his chest with missiles.
  • Rapunzel Hair: His hair goes below his waist.
  • Wholesome Crossdresser: If you believe the fact that "he" really is supposed to be male. Maybe not so wholesome. But certainly not villainous or creepy.
  • Younger Than They Look: He is apparently six years old.


Miko Ooka

  • Meaningful Name: Her name is wordplay on "Ookami-ko", which means "wolf girl".
  • Little Bit Beastly: She has a wolf tail and ears, but otherwise looks like a normal person. The ears aren't immediately obvious, though, as they're covered by a hood, but the hood still gives off the impression of wolf ears.
  • Unusual Ears: She has wolf ears, though they're hidden under her hood.
  • Younger Than They Look: She looks like a little girl, but is actually a toddler at the age of 3.5 years old.

Tei Sukone

Oniko Hinomoto

  • Fantastic Racism: She was created as a parody of the anti-Japan movement in China.


  • In the Hood: He wears a black and green hoodie. Apparently he was affected by radiation after the tsunami in Japan, which is why his clothes glow in the dark.

    Other characters 

Uta Utane

Momo Momone

Mako Nagone

Sora Suiga

  • Gender Bender: Sara Suiga, who is declared a separate person from Sora, as opposed to other gender bends who are regarded as simply that.

Luna Amane

  • Moon Rabbit: Just look at her name. The rabbit ears are an obvious reference to the rabbit in the moon.
  • Unusual Ears: Kinda; Luna appears to have bunny ears attached to her earphones.

Koto Fuuga

  • Animal Motifs: She owns a megaphone shaped like a toucan. In general, she's said to love birds.
  • No Indoor Voice: Portrayed as being very loud.

Yufu Sekka

  • An Ice Person: In some videos, she's portrayed as having ice-based powers. This, coupled with the fact she wants winter to be forever makes her fit the trope in both senses.


  • Kuudere: According to his profile, his personality can be described as either this or Yandere.
  • Lazy Bum: Sometimes can be lazy and prefer spending his time napping.
  • Multicolored Hair: Sky blue with white highlights.


  • Kuudere: Although her personality is not yet established, her profile assumes it's similar to her brother

Ron Keine

Nana Macne

  • Canon Immigrant: While not exactly fanon, she obtained Vocaloid 3 Japanese and English voicebanks in 2014, and was the first of her line to do so.
  • Follow the Leader: Part of the Macloid series, but can be imported into UTAU.

Neko Kanochi

Aiko Kikyuune


  • Anthropomorphic Personification: Of a castella cake. And since castella cakes are Yufu's character item, it tends to jokes in the fandom. Of course, it was probably intentional from Teira's creator's part.
  • Creepy Child: She (and her "genderbents", Tiramisu and Mashuu) might appear to be like that, to some fans.
  • Gender Bender: Mashuu, who's just as popular as her.
  • Kid-Appeal Character: Teira also has a younger sister (produced with the g- flag instead of Mashuu's g+ flag), called Tiramisu.

Nene Nene

Rana Sorane

  • Wings Do Nothing: Her (and her less-known sister's) earwing is basically just for decoration, as it'd be impractical for said accessory to make one fly.

Kenta Chikune

  • Ax-Crazy: His most famous song, Despair in the Hamburger Factory, portrays him and Teto in this fashion, even though his original personality isn't like that. It's generally (though, not canonically) accepted that this is how his angry side must be, therefore, making him Cute and Psycho.
  • The Ditz: He can alternate between this Genius Ditz and Cloud Cuckoo Lander, depending on how he's interpreted.
  • Gender Bender: Shemu Chikune. She's a cyborg vampire partially made with Lego pieces.
  • Keet: He's pretty tall, but fits all the other characteristics.
  • Our Vampires Are Different: Kenta can walk under strong sunlight and doesn't need to drink blood, as well as he's a ball of cheerfulness, and, to pepper it all up, he's Christian as well. Though, in the situations where he gets angry, he becomes more like a traditional vampire. Apparently, according to his creator on Formspring, he's still vulnerable to garlic, but doesn't notice it.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Lemons. He can live without blood, but not without lemons. In his Formspring, it was joked about how he must smell like lemon detergent.

Shinji Hibiki

  • Bandaged Face: Although they only cover his eyes, not his entire face.
  • Hidden Eyes: His eyes are covered by the bandages he wears.

Owata Tsuine

  • Keet: Summarized in the fact that his "official personality" can be described as \(^o^)/.


  • Ambiguous Gender: Assumed to be male, though.
  • Meaningful Name: His name literally means "Dog Snake". No points guessing why.
  • Mix-and-Match Critters: Has the head of a dog and the body of a snake. He generally behaves like a dog (barking, fear of vacuum cleaners, etc.) but is cold blooded like a snake.
  • Precious Puppy: A friendly little creature, if his character descriptions are to be believed.


  • Ambiguous Gender: His gender is defined as "Male/Female/Hermaphrodite/None", though he's generally referred to as male.
  • No Indoor Voice: Every single one of his samples are loud grunts and screaming. This is part of what makes his Stylistic Suck so... sucky.
  • Refuge in Audacity: His character item is Helen Keller.
  • Sensory Abuse: All of his voice samples are very loud grunts and screaming.
  • Stylistic Suck: Not only are his voice samples very screechy, he has a poorly made OTO. This is all intentional.
  • Time Abyss: He's 361,030,115 years old.
  • Wise Tree: Parodied. In his backstory, he's described as a magical tree capable of singing. When a traveling peddler sat under his shade, he was generous enough to sing the peddler a song (the narrator calling The Giving Tree a stuck-up bitch in comparison), which amazed the peddler so much that he got a boner. He now travels the world, singing songs and curing men of erectile dysfunction.

Meiji Gahata

  • Ambiguous Gender: Her gender is simply described as 'witch'. It should be mentioned, however, the kanji for 'witch'note  in her Japanese profile implies that she's a girl.
  • Cute Witch: She is a 16 year old witch. Her given name even means "mage"!
  • Fairy Companion: Has a companion named Frill. Frill looks like a candle with a blue flames, has wings and a tail, and wears a little dress.
  • Meaningful Name: "Meiji" is a transliteration of "Mage".
  • Trademark Favorite Drink: Tea, especially when mixed with sweet milk.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: She has light pink hair.

Renri Yamine
