The fourth English Vocaloid, the first Vocaloid released by PowerFX, and the first Vocaloid released for the Vocaloid2 enginenote , Sweet Ann is voiced by an Australian singer under the stage name of "Jody".
- Mama Bear: According to Oliver's Twitter account, she doesn't take kindly to Oliver getting hurt.
- Older Than They Look: The Madness of Duke Venomania PV says she's 62. Canonically (at least in the Taiwan version), she's 23.
- Phenotype Stereotype: Even in Taiwan, Sweet Ann can not escape being portrayed as a blond-haired blue eyed American cowgirl by some means. This continues despite the fact that her origins are Swedish.
- Punny Name: Sweet Ann = Sweden.
- Steampunk: E-capsule Sweet Ann gives off this impression to viewers.
- Anime Hair: Particularly his third boxart design (E-capsule), which is of the Spiky Hair variety.
- Badass Longcoat: In his Taiwanese designs.
- Iconic Item: A pocket watch, apparently as a reference of him being "late"note .
- Rated M for Manly: His original voice is ridiculously deep and rumbly.
- His final voice isn't quite as deep, but is still much deeper than the other male vocaloids.
- Hell, just listen to THIS! Manly to the MAX!
- Sinister Scythe: E-capsule Big Al has one.
- Younger and Hipper: Most people interpret the grey streaks in his hair as a sign that he's at least in middle age. That said, the Taiwanese version looks much younger than him, is more slender, and has a head full of brown hair.
Early fan supporters couldn't be deterred from making art based on him, even before any details of his design were revealed. VocaTone did release a silhouette of him◊ ahead of time, which helped considerably.
- Ax-Crazy: Pumpkin March portrays him as an insane Torture Technician who believes Humans Are the Real Monsters.
- Breakout Character: Not on Miku's level (yet) but so far, he's slowly but surely been rising in the ranks to becoming one of (if not the) the most popular English Vocaloid.
- Cherubic Choir: He can be used to make one.
- Child Soldier: His official design gives off vibes of this. And he has bandages on his legs and left eye... Atlthough it's actually based off the Vienna Boy's Choir.
- Creepy Child: Some songs like this one portrayed him as such. And it'll be hard to shake that reputation off of him, considering some of his greatest hits are songs about unsettling subjects and eating a live tarantula.
- Curtains Match the Window
- The Cutie: Oh God... Just listen to this and try to resist the urge to hug him through the screen.
- Does Not Like Shoes: After releasing a silhouetted version of Oliver, the artist stated that he looked too girly with shoes, so they were scrapped. The "youthful innocence" variant of this trope is a popular interpretation of his character as a result.
- Eyepatch of Power: He has a bandage over his left eye.
- Hotter and Sexier: When he's drawn in his older teenage years.
- Non-Human Sidekick: He's often depicted this way with the the bird featured on the boxart, James. James' popularity was so great that VocaTone took advantage of it, in ways including but not limited to: 1) an official demo song of Oliver, "Dinky Dink", where James is shown wearing Cool Shades; 2) Oliver's official Twitter account claims to actually be administered by James, with Oliver dictating to him what to post; 3) James was hinted to be able to speak; and 4) VocaTone played an April Fool's joke by announcing that James would become a Vocaloid of his own, as Bird-loid.
- Token Mini-Moe: Of the POWER FX line.
A male Vocaloid released on September 10, 2013. He is voiced by Swedish Visual Kei artist YOHIO. Despite his Swedish origins, he has English and Japanese voicebanks. Beta of his Japanese bank can be found here, and a couple of his English demos are here and here. His design was determined by a contest, chosen by YOHIO himself.
- Affectionate Nickname: The Twitter Character Blogs had the other PowerFX characters christen him as "Hio".
- Badass Longcoat
- Big Brother Instinct: In works where he's alongside Oliver.
- Bilingual Bonus: He can speak in both English and Japanese.
- Bishōnen: Well he is based off of Yohio. Humorously enough, he's actually more masculine looking than his namesake (a picture for reference◊).
- Companion Cube: Cubi, a black cubical object that floats around him. Stated to be his pet and music player.
- Determinator: His past self shown shades of this in the song NeapolitaN. His current self double subverts this, as he was shown to be pessimistic at first, before finally standing up after seeing the reflection of his past self.
- Hair of Gold
- No Name Given: According to VocaTone's Tumbir, his character does not have a given name.
- Ambiguously Brown: As of late, it hasn't been confirmed what ethnicity Ruby is stated to be. Word of God says she's of Latina descent.
- Color-Coded Stones: With rubies, obviously. As such, she's heavily associated with red, and by extension, pink.
- Foil: She's described to be the opposite of Miku.
- Rock Theme Naming: Named after the jewel, ruby.
- Spicy Latina: Word of God confirms she's Latina. Adding to the "spicy" part is her intended portrayal of being "upbeat and sporty", and the general Hot-Blooded-ness her design conveys.
- Symbol Motif Clothing: She has a ruby emblem on the back of her hoodie.
- Tomboy: Word of God states that Ruby was designed with an "upbeat and sporty" personality in mind.
CYBER DIVA is the first new English Vocaloid for V4. She is notable for having been recorded with a new English recording script. It has been confirmed that she is part of the VY vocals, and is also known as VY3.
She was released on 4 February 2015.
- Gold Makes Everything Shiny: Just look at the amount of gold in her boxart.
- Meaningful Name: The term Diva is usually used to describe female singers that have reached idol status or consider themselves to be.
- Theme Naming: As mentioned above, she is the native English female of the VY vocal series, but has a completely different name to VY1 and VY2. She has a similar naming scheme to CYBER SONGMAN instead, with it being written as "CYBER" followed by a word applied to certain types of singers.
CYBER SONGMAN is YAMAHA's second English Vocaloid for V4. As CYBER DIVA was said to be the "female" half of the pair for the English VY vocals, CYBER SONGMAN is speculated to be the male half, VY4.
He was released on 31 October 2016.
- Cool Shades
- Meaningful Name: The latter part of his name is another word for a lay clerk, or male choir singer.
- Theme Naming: Carries the same "CYBER" in his name as CYBER DIVA.
Standard Vocals - Amy and ChrisA pair of English voicebanks issued as part of VOCALOID5's Standard Vocals. They serve as the successor to the English VY Voicebanks.
- Ambiguously Brown: Averted; as CYBER SONGMAN has no official avatar, Amy and Chris' avatars are the first to be unambiguously black.
- Expy: Can be seen as this to LEON and LOLA, who have similar voice types. In addition, while LEON and LOLA don't have official designs, they have been officially confirmed to be voiced by black people, were specifically marketed as soul vocalists, and early boxart for them unambiguously depicts them as black◊, further cementing the idea Amy and Chris could be their counterparts.
- Nonstandard Character Design: While their designs have a low poly aesthetic (see Retraux below), they also have a more realistic art style in comparison to most Vocaloids.
- Retraux: Like Ken and Kaori, their designs have a low poly aesthetic typical of 90s video games/3D art.
The first Vocaloid (alongside Lola) - ever - and the first male English Vocaloid. He was released by Zero-G and runs under the original Vocaloid engine.
Due to the obsolescence of the Vocaloid 1 engine, he is due to be retired and pulled out of sales after December 31, 2013.
- Blue Boy, Pink Girl: Leon's boxart is blue, in contrast with Lola's pink boxart.
- Demoted to Extra: While he and LOLA were some of the first VOCALOID synthesizers, time has not been kind to them. Neither are particular fan favorites like MIRIAM, and over the years fell to the wayside in favor of more advanced English synthesizers. That's not to say they don't have fans—they're just unlucky.
- Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: In the Japanese fandom, one of his popular visualizations, was as a sweet young man with blonde hair.
- Masculine Girl, Feminine Boy: With Leon having a high voice and Lola having a low voice.
- Vocal Dissonance: His vocal range shows this.
Released at the same time and by the same company as Leon, Lola is the first female Vocaloid. She also runs under the initial Vocaloid engine.
Due to the obsolescence of the Vocaloid 1 engine, she was retired and pulled out of sales after December 31, 2013.
- Pink Girl, Blue Boy: Lola's boxart is pink, in contrast with Leon's pink boxart.
- Masculine Girl, Feminine Boy: With Leon having a high voice and Lola having a low voice.
- She Cleans Up Nicely: Even if she does have a very deep voice, an astonishing number of gems show up if you look for them.
- Surprisingly Good Foreign Language: Sings backing vocals in the movie Paprika. Many speculated it was MEIKO, until it was revealed in an interview to have been LOLA.
The third English Vocaloid and the first to reveal the provider of the voice bank. She is distributed by Zero-G, is voiced by Miriam Stockley, and is the last English Vocaloid to be released under the first engine.
Due to the obsolescence of the Vocaloid 1 engine, she is due to be retired and pulled out of sales after December 31, 2013.
- Odd Couple: Sound wise, she compliments Avanna surprisingly well.
- Temporary Online Content: Despite LOLA, LEON, and MIRIAM all being removed from sale, it was still possible to buy a downloadable link until November 2015. MIRIAM was the only one of the three to have all her serial codes had been sold at that point, making it currently impossible to purchase her.
The first Vocaloid2-engine Vocaloid by Zero-G and the fifth English Vocaloid, Prima is built almost entirely for opera songs. Thus, she sings with deep vowels and rolls her consonants.
- Classically-Trained Extra: One interpretation, seeing as she was designed to sing opera and is usually used to sing...not Opera.
- Eerie Pale-Skinned Brunette: Based upon her photo boxart.
- Idiot Hair: E-capsule Prima has a stray curl on the side of her head.
- Meaningful Name - From "prima donna," the lady in an opera company who generally got the leading roles.
- Shrinking Violet: E-capsule Prima shyly glances sideways, while her chibi form shows her standing pigeon-toed, tight lipped and blushing.
- Surprisingly Good English: While an English voicebank, Prima was the first Vocaloid to have phonemes and can sing in multiple languages. Makes sense considering she's designed to sing in opera.
- Technician Versus Performer: Between her and Sweet ANN back in 2007. Both were released at the height of the Vocaloid craze, and are credited for people developing interest in oversea Vocaloids. While Sweet Ann was notable for sounding sharp and clear, while Prima was praised for sounding beautiful.
- Unusual Ears: E-capsule Prima sports a pair of headphones with pointing speaker ears. No one is quite sure if they are Fox ears, Cat ears or Wolf ears. Though the most popular assumption is fox.
- Vocal Dissonance: Much like the popular teenager design spawned from the Japanese fandom, E-capsule Prima was designed to appear as a young female (18 in fact). In the Western fandom such portrayals are criticized as some believe it doesn't fit her voice.
- Yandere: She's portrayed as one by the Western fandom, mainly those who tried to pirate her and the software with a wrong cracking code, making it unusable; they interpreted it as Prima being yandere and taking everybody with her.
She has two boxarts, the first being a CGI render and the second being done by an artist on DeviantArt.
- Bare Your Midriff: Can't get anymore obvious.
- Hotter and Sexier: Compare her current boxart (pictured above) to her original◊.
- Idiot Hair: After Sonika's original box art included a loose strand of hair, several artists tend to exaggerate this (though still to a realistic degree). This was eventually exaggerated in her second boxart.
- Kaleidoscope Hair: Her green hair is able to change color to red according to her Twitter messages.
- Master of None: Though her voice is average at best and often unintelligible, she's less restricted by phonetics and syllables than other Vocaloids, making it easier for her to sing in other languages.
- Nonstandard Character Design: Her initial design was a CGI render that looked like something out of an old video game, unlike other Vocaloids who typically had an animesque design. Her next design was in a more realistic art style, but still a clear departure from other Vocaloid designs. Averted with her E-capsule design, which stuck to a more animesque art style than her other deisgns in line with other Vocaloids.
- Omniglot: She can (theoretically) sing in any language and was advertised as having that ability, as she has a variety of phonetics that usually aren't included with English voicebanks. However, she's still mainly intended to be used in English, and how well she handles other languages can vary from listener to listener and user to user.
- She Cleans Up Nicely: She doesn't have to be The Unintelligible, so long as you know how to use her. So just carry on.
Tonio was released by Zero-G as the eighth English Vocaloid; while his initial release was delayed and people thought it would go to Big-Al status, Tonio was eventually released after a few months. He is meant to be an opera singer as a partner to Prima.
- Classically-Trained Extra: Like Prima, he is not used for opera. Some of his most famous songs are Lady Gaga covers.
- Horned Humanoid: E-capsule Tonio's artwork◊
- Tall, Dark, and Handsome: The stock image on his box art.
- Tuxedo and Martini: Even Sonika claims a martini to be his character item!
The first Vocaloid3-engine vocaloid by Zero-G. She is promoted as having a Celtic voice bank. She was first publicized through a demo (cover of Enya's Only Time) which was played during this Vocaloid Producers Panel. Her second demo was a Rose Royce song, "Wishing on a Star".
She was released 22nd of December 2012.
- Animesque: Unlike the other Zero-G vocaloids, her sole official design closely follows the anime style of drawing, mainly as a result of Yamaha's insistence (the commissioned artist, AkiGlancy, originally designed her to be a Western-style elf; this concept was rejected, but still appears as a sillouette on the boxart behind the official design).
- Fighter, Mage, Thief: Given her original elf concept, she fits into the Mage role between her, Daina's, and Dex's fantasy designs.
- Innocent Blue Eyes
- Pointy Ears: She was going to have this, but changed at the last moment — which hasn't stopped fan artists from continuing to draw her with them.
- Raven Hair, Ivory Skin: Like many Irish people.
- Tareme Eyes
- Youthful Freckles
Developed and distributed by Zero-G, she is the first female English Vocaloid for the Vocaloid4 engine. She is modelled after a fox and derived from the Fox character of 'The Fox and The Hound'. She was released along with Dex in November 2015.
She is voiced by AkiGlancy, an American Vocaloid producer.
- Cunning Like a Fox: Her main motif. A picture of a blue fox also appears on her headset in her official design. Her alternate thief design also plays into the "thieving fox" stereotype.
- Fiery Redhead: Sometimes portrayed as this.
- Fighter, Mage, Thief: Among the three fantasy designs for her, Avanna, and Dex, she fittingly takes the Thief role.
- Little Bit Beastly: Her original design had her with fox ears and tail.
- Loveable Rogue: Her thief◊ design.
- Mascot: She and Dex serve as the headliners for the Engloid-themed concert Vocamerica.
- Meaningful Name: "Daina" is the Lithuanian and Latvian word for "song". There's another, unintentional meaning on AkiGlancy's part: When coming up with the names for the duo, she wanted a whimsical-sounding name for Daina. Nostraightanswer pointed out that she shares the name with the very whimsical Alice Liddell's cat, Dinah.
- Wearing a Flag on Your Head: Fittingly enough for an American vocaloid, Daina's main colors are a prominent red, white, and blue.
Developed and distributed by Zero-G, he is the first English male Vocaloid for the Vocaloid4 engine. He is modelled after a wolf and derived from the Hound character of 'The Fox and The Hound'. He was released along with Daina in November 2015.
He is voiced by Sam Blakeslee (aka. nostraightanswer), an American Vocaloid producer.
- Ambiguously Brown: The first male Vocaloid with this skin type.
- Fighter, Mage, Thief: Dex's hunter design is more combat oriented, placing him in the Fighter role among his, Avanna's, and Daina's fantasy designs.
- Heroes Want Redheads: In songs that portray Dex and Daina as a couple, he's usually the one that ends up pining for her.
- Little Bit Beastly: His original design had him with wolf ears and tail.
- Mythology Gag: Dex shares his wolf theme with the werewolf singer Baionoto Kenji, an UTAU nostraightanswer also had a part in.
- Noble Wolf: His main motif. A picture of a yellow wolf also appears on his headset in his official design. An alternate design shows him as a hunter◊, fittingly enough of a wolf.
- Mascot: He and Daina are the main focus of the Engloid-themed concert Vocamerica.
- Supernatural Gold Eyes: Goes hand in hand with his alternate wolf boy design.
Bruno and Clara
The first pair of Spanish Vocaloids on the Vocaloid3 engine. The old character design by Raimon Benach was used in their first visual demo video "Juntos Tú y Yo". The current design is by artist "Rumple".
- Cool Shades: Clara.
- Iconic Item: Bruno's hat and Clara's glasses. They're also both seen with microphones.
- Latin Lover: Played up and then some for Bruno's version of "SPICE!".
- Spicy Latina: Depending on the producer, Clara is viewed as being this. While on the other side she is viewed as The Cutie.
The second female Spanish Vocaloid on the Vocaloid 3 engine, released on December 15 2013 as a download (her boxed version is yet to be released). Her character design was made by Noriko Hayashi, the winning result of a contest held by Voctro Labs. The voicebank itself was acutally part of a collaboration between Voctro Labs and the Spanish Pop Band La Oreja de Van Gogh, where the Vocaloid was used by the band to listen to their own written lyrics before recording their songs. Supposedly the voicebank was based on the band's current lead singer, Leire Martinez, though this has yet to be confirmed.
- Princess Curls: Rare variant - her straight hair curls at the tips
- Robot Buddy: Nova, the little orb that follows her around.
- Ship Tease: Surprisingly, she gets this with Yohioloid, by virtue of their character designers liking to pair them up.
- Surprisingly Good English: While her voicebank is Spanish, it is versatile enough to sing almost clearly in a few other languages, including English, Italian, Japanese and Russian, without the need for a separate voicebank.
ONAVoctro Labs' fourth mascot, made in collaboration with The Lab Barcelona and La Merced (ICUB). She interestingly shares the same voicebank as MAIKA, making her a Literal Split Personality for their shared data. She is meant to represent the Catalan capabilities of the voicebank. Unlike MAIKA, she is not intended for public use, instead being used for concerts and events.
- Foil: To MAIKA. On the whole, MAIKA seems to be more geared toward the public image of Vocaloids, being an Animesque young singer with a futuristic design and bright colors to match, while ONA is more geared towards professional usage and has a more contemporary design fit for the 21st century. And while both are Virtual Celebrities, MAIKA is meant to be used on computers, while ONA is meant to be used on a live stage or in the public.
- Literal Split Personality: Of MAIKA's voicebank.
- Meaningful Name: Ona means "wave" in Catalan, and her design motif has waves in it.
- Primary-Color Champion: Her shirt has bits of red, yellow, and blue in it, and she's represented by a red, blue and yellow logo.
A leaked early demo can be found here, which was praised for its humanlike realism. It should be noted, though, that Kim Tahi also sings in the background for said demo. Her first official demo, 'RUN', was released 22 September 2011; and was brought her back to the forefront in "Never Let You Go" .
- Cat Girl: No tail in evidence, but her costume includes a pair of cat-ear-shaped speakers mounted on her head, and her standard facial expression is a Cat Smile.
- Exotic Eye Designs: Star-shaped light reflections in her irises.
- Hartman Hips: She certainly has a curvy pair of hips on her.
- Hollywood Thin: While her design looks like she's at a healthy weight and she sports some curvaceous hips, her canonical weight is roughly 98 poundsnote , which is about 10 pounds below the ideal weight for her frame and heightnote .
- Rule 63: She has an official genderbend named ZeeU. She also has the fanmade "SeeWoo", but like all fan genderbends his looks are not concrete.
Official Derivatives:These are a few of the derivatives either created by Crypton themselves or from an official source directly connected to Crypton, which adopted these characters.
- Adaptational Personality Change: Snow Miku's personality varies depending on the producer of her yearly theme song. For example, Snow Miku 2022's personality is an adventurous, Genki Girl as seen in Colorful Marine Snow.
- Interpretative Character: She's still Hatsune Miku, but with a wintry design that updates annually. No two designs are the same, with the most the designs have in common being twin tails and a wintry motif.
- Non-Human Sidekick: Rabbit Yukine serves as this to Miku, and his clothing updates every year to match hers.
A pink palette swap of Hatsune Miku with a cherry blossom motif. She was created to represent the beginning of springtime in response to the recurring Snow Miku character. However, she differs from Snow Miku in that she does not receive yearly design updates, and thus far there have only been two official variations of her design.
- Cherry Blossom Girl: Her whole motif, as she's based on the arrival of springtime.
- Expy: While she's not a fan derivative, her creation was inspired by various fan arts of the response character before Good Smile and Crypton decided to make her official with their own design for her.
- Flat Character: Unlike Snow Miku whose characterization varies on a year-to-year basis depending on how the artists and her associated songs portray her, Sakura Miku doesn't receive this treatment and not much is known about her.
- Rose-Haired Sweetie: The only version of Miku consistently portrayed with pink hair.
MikudayoAn creepy chibi version of Hatsune Miku based on a memetically creepy Nendoroid costume of her from the Tokyo Game Show 2011 presentation of SEGA's 3DS title Hatsune Miku and Future Stars: Project mirai. As of 2021, three new derivatives have been created based off of her: KAITOdayo, MEIKOdayo and Lukadayo.
- Ascended Meme: In addition to being adopted as an official Derivative by Crypton after she gained sufficient exposure, SEGA themselves (responsible for creating this abomination) introduced their own "-dayo" variations to accompany the original, in "MEIKOdayo", "KAITOdayo", and "Lukadayo" flavors.
- Project SEKAI has also added her to their game as a mascot costume primarily worn by Miku. A KAITO version is said to exist within the game's universe as well. Additionally, Nene-robo is a singing robot that is modeled after a "-dayo" version of the original character Nene Kusanagi.
- Ax-Crazy: Often depicted as this in pictures.
- Butt-Monkey: In the "Together with Mikudayo!" promo videos for Project mirai 2. She gets absolutely trampled for the sake of comedy.
- The Cameo: Project DIVA F and Arcade featured a Head Accessory of her, and Project mirai had an unlockable face swap of Miku that made her look like Mikudayo. F 2nd went a step further and included a whole outfit. In every game she appears in, she's either Downloadable Content or the hardest item to acquire in the game.
- Creepy Monotone: When she does speak, she mainly says "Miku da yo" in a very droning version of Miku's regular voice bank, but with little no inflection. This makes her come off as very unnerving.
- Last Lousy Point: When she isn't DLC, she's this.
- Meaningful Name: Based on the phrase "Miku da yo", meaning "I am Miku!". The phrase used to be used ironically concerning how much she doesn't look like Miku at all, but it's now used to signify her wanting to Kill and Replace the actual Miku.
- Perpetual Smiler: She's this as a result of her costume.
- Super-Deformed: She's supposed to be this.
- Trademark Favorite Food: Otoro sushi, or specifically, giant otoro sushi, since regular sushi is too small for her.
- Color Motif: Unlike Sakura Miku, who is a pink palette swap of Hatsune Miku with cherry blossom motifs, the other Cryptons received unique Sakura-themed outfits in their associated colors◊ as a part of ARMA BIANCA's 2021 spring collection.
- Expy: In 2021, KAITO, MEIKO, and Luka received their own "-dayo" forms based on Mikudayo.
- Out of Focus: While the Crypton group will sometimes get Snow designs to go alongside Miku's for sub-visuals, they don't appear in the event songs or get much promotion. The closest they've gotten to anything significant being done with these designs was their Snow Miku 2022 designs becoming limited costumes for them in Project SEKAI.
Ascended Fan Derivatives
These are fanmade "derivatives" of existing Vocaloids, who have gained official recognition as memes from Crypton themselves; two of them, Neru and Haku, made cameos in the spinoff manga and games.
- Ascended Fanon: Sort of, her creator CAFFEIN ships her with Miku Hatsune, and when mothy, one of the most influential Vocaloid producers of all decided to include a character based on Haku, he paired her together with a character based on Miku.
- Bare Your Midriff
- The Cameo: A special Mythology Gag for Evillious Chronicles fans; Haku appears briefly in the Project mirai rendition of "Servant of Evil", referencing the song "Daughter of White".
- Drowning My Sorrows: Because she thinks she'll never be as good as Miku.
- Hidden Depths: Despite her concept as not being as good a singer as Miku, she's often portrayed as being good at other things, such as playing musical instruments (especially the guitar).
- Jiggle Physics: Her model in Miku Miku Dance is the first officially released one that does this.
- Ms. Fanservice
- Meaningful Name: Her name means "weak willed words".
- Tareme Eyes
- Technicolor Eyes: Red eyes.
- Trademark Favorite Food: Sake, just like Meiko up there.
- The Voiceless: In Project DIVA, being a fan-created Vocaloid, Haku had no voice. Averted in Project DIVA 2nd, where (like everyone else), she has her own celebration dialogue when completing a song.
- Haku's voice in Project DIVA 2nd seems to be a deeper, more reserved-sounding Miku.
Her voice is usually an edit of Miku's, but can also come from Rin's, depending on the editor.
- The Cameo: Appears as a ghostly silhouette at the end of Blessed Messiah and the Tower of Ai (implied to be the previous "messiah").
- Companion Cube: Her cell phone.
- Expy: She's visually a fusion of the most popular Crypton Vocaloids of the day, splicing together elements of Miku (long hair, clothes) and Rin/Len (yellow color scheme, single ponytail, midriff, keyboard sleeve, and shorts).
- Lazy Bum: Her origin and name lampshade this.
- Meaningful Name: Her name itself is a reference to trolling; "akita, neru" equates to "(Fuck this,) I'm tired, I'm going to bed."
- While it's likely accidental, Neru also shares her last name with the Akita Inu, a dog breed with a reputation of being loyal towards humans, yet aggressive toward other animals.
- Phoneaholic Teenager: Often depicted as one due to her cell phone.
- The Voiceless: Like Haku, had no voice in Project DIVA (Due to being an unofficial cameo). Also like Haku, averted in Project DIVA 2nd in the same fashion. All of her celebratory quotes sound displeased, no matter how well the player performs.
- Neru's dialogue in Project DIVA 2nd seems to be a deeper, more womanly-sounding Rin.
- Tomboy and Girly Girl: With Haku in Dark Woods Circus, in which she's the "girly girl" (she's seen wearing a long green dress). In fanon, however, it's usually the other way around.
- Troll: Created out of a trolling incident, as can be read on that trope's page.
- Tsurime Eyes: To contrast with Haku.
- Ascended Meme - As in literally ascended. 3 figurines of her were launched in a rocket from Black Rock, Nevada.
- Blank White Eyes
- Perpetual Frowner: She spends most if not all of her time with a shocked, sleepy, or angry expression.
- When She Smiles: In the opening for Project Diva 2nd, she actually smiles for once.
- Body Horror: One piece of fanart suggests that TakoLuka's eyes are actually anuses. Eww!]
- Funny Octopus: She's a cute little octopus!
- Head Pet: Her Nendoroid figurine is designed to rest on top of a Luka nendo.
- Interspecies Romance: She's sometimes paired up with a tuna named Ooma-sannote , such as in Tako Luka * Tuna Fever.
- Trademark Favorite Food: Although Luka likes tuna, Tako Luka takes it further by dating tuna.
- Waddling Head
- Alternate Self: In all of Sakine Meiko's Project Diva appearances except Project DIVA- f, she is treated as a separate character module for MEIKO rather than an alternate outfit/version for her. Project DIVA Megamix also treats her as an "extra" character alongside Akita Neru, Teto Kasane, and Haku Yowane. Some fans have interpreted her as being MEIKO's younger sibling, rather than a younger version of MEIKO herself, as she's intended to be.
- Bare Your Midriff
- Breakout Character: For a while, she was a popular character in her own right, earning her a few figures and an appearance in the Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA series.
- Clingy Jealous Girl: In the Project Diva series, if the player hasn't chosen her in a long time she will get angry.
- Color-Coded Characters: In the Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA series, her official color is pitched as being orange, in order to distinguish her from MEIKO.
- Composite Character: Some fans settle confusion between her and normal Meiko by making them the same person (usually with Meiko's fanon personality in Meiko Sakine's body).
- Genki Girl: Usually portrayed as hot-blooded and chipper by fans.
- Lady in Red: Like her older counterpart, though her associated character color is "orange".
- Meaningful Name: Her last name "Sakine" means "Preceding Sound". While it fits in with the Crypton Character Vocal series naming convention, it's also a reference to MEIKO being the first Japanese Vocaloid.
- Ms. Fanservice: Though more subdued than MEIKO.
- Out of Focus: Like many of the other "official" derivatives, she's seen less official use in recent years, though she does make a return in Project DIVA Megamix like the other ascended derivatives.
- Prequel: Her official setting is "the Meiko who came into music trend at the age of 16".
- Vague Age: Averted, as she's the only version of MEIKO to be given an official age by her creator.
- Younger and Hipper: One of the primary reasons behind her creation was because MEIKO lacked the youthful voice and appearance that made Miku popular with Vocaloid producers and fans.
She is closely associated with insects and other crawling critters, such as wharf roaches and cockroaches. The world of Calne Ca is full of grotesque and deathly imagery.
Calcium also appears in a PV for DJ Technorch's Ataraxia, but with red eyes and more normal-looking robotic limbs as opposed to Calne's wierd appendages. She was recognized by Crypton as a derivative of Miku, and has been featured in some of their events.
- After the End: If Zeromachina is anything to go by, then her home is the Earth after some cataclysm that wiped out the majority of mankind.
- Big Creepy-Crawlies: in the Bacterial Contamination PV, the nightmarish Vocaloids trade their mechanical appendages for organic spiny insectile limbs. In the Machine Muzik PV, she's accompanied by a large scorpion-like creature.
- Body Horror: Her legs, mouth, one eye, and an arm are grotesque cybernetic prostheses, and her other arm is disproportionately long, three-fingered, and skeletal. Her "human" form in Bacterial Contamination has her looking less scary, but she still has sores on her face and her inflamed, red eye.
- Broken Bird: Bacterial Contamination has Calne Ca serve as a metaphorical representation of how a victim of bullying sees herself.
- Dark Is Not Evil: According to Word of God.
- Dem Bones: The base form of Calne Ca is a mechanized skeleton. The stuff that makes her look even remotely human is additions.
- Associated with her is a skull with a cybernetic eye walking on 4 mechanical legs.
- Eldritch Location: Fittingly enough, she lives in one. The setting for Bacterial Contamination counts too.
- Eye Scream: Moreso in Bacterial Contamination, her right eye isn't an endoskeleton robotic eye like it is in her mechanized form, but instead resembles an insect's eye.
- He Who Fights Monsters: In Bacterial Contamination. She fights against her bullies so hard, that eventually she becomes one. Her reaction upon realizing this Isn't pretty.
- Humanoid Abomination: Her biological insect-like form, for a given definition of "humanoid". Calcium fits the trope even better; she only looks human, but you can tell that there's something...off about her...
- Killer Robot: Even though Deino has insisted that "she is not a brutal character", she definitely has that vibe going.
- Losing Your Head: has been seen at least once with her head detached and walking on the floor on its finger-appendages.
- Ms. Fanservice: Her creator makes artworks featuring her in which she has some gloriously fanservicey outfits such as this and this among others ( yes this is calne ca in case you have doubts, she simply is human form in these artworks ). And if you turn off the mature filter you can find more.
- Natural Weapon: Insect Calne Ca's hand-blades mirrors the blades of her robot form.
- Navel-Deep Neckline: When "dressed" as Miku she leaves the vest undone to her navel, when she's wearing anything at all.
- Our Clones Are Identical: Those weird faceless mannequins, be they clones or androids.
- Vocal Dissonance: In the previews for Zeromachina she is voiced by.... Yui Horie. Definitely not the kind of voice one would expect from such a fearsome-looking robot.
- Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds: In Bacterial Contamination, where she's a severe victim of bullying.
- The Worm That Walks: Not quite, but she is occasionally seen pretty much swarming with creepy crawlies.
- Ambiguous Gender: It's unclear what gender it is supposed to be, but many simply assume that it's female because it was based on Hatsune Miku.
- Blank Slate: Its creators never gave it an official personality, but many headcanon that it's creepy as it looks, especially when interacting with the Virtual Singers and other fan derivatives.
- Body Horror: It's a head with hair for legs and nothing else.
- The Cameo: While never appearing in the game proper, "she" cameos in two◊ separate◊ promotional images for the video game Project SEKAI prior to its release.
A super deformed mascot of Kagamine Rin, it was conceptualized as Rin's head on a pair of skinny legs and became popular because of how disturbing it is to look at. Crypton eventually began to acknowledge it, and officially included it in several pieces of official media, as well as sold the character as merchandise.
- Body Horror: It's Kagamine Rin's head on a pair of skinny legs and nothing else.
