The fifth Japanese Vocaloid and the first to be distributed by Internet Co., Ltd. rather than Crypton. His outfit is based on that of a samurai. He was designed by Kentaro Miura (the creator of Berserk) and is voiced by Gackt. Yes, that Gackt.
- Author Avatar: A variation; Gakupo is said to be "an extension of Gackt's persona".
- Blade Below the Shoulder: In the Synchronicity series, before Miku destroys it.
- Chick Magnet: As Duke Venomania, he literally makes a deal with the devil to become one.
- Cool Big Bro: Often portrayed as this for Gumi. Though his fanon personality ranges from immature pervert to hyper-The Comically Serious samurai, so your mileage may vary.
- Depending on the Writer: As mentioned above, though most Vocaloids have no set personality, his fanon personality has especially shown range over the years. Though a general trend is that his more immature portrayals are clustered towards the beginning of his run, there are exceptions like the 2015 Nikoniko Cho Party concert.
- Dogged Nice Guy: In "Go Google It".
- Everything's Better with Samurai
- Face Death with Dignity: His cover of "Disappearance of Hatsune Miku" seems to invoke this trope, as it's set to a slower, more calm tune (though still somewhat melancholy). Perhaps it's a samurai thing.
- Harem Seeker: In Madness of Duke Venomania. Albeit, he's playing Duke Venomania, not himself.
- Honorary True Companion: Early on, he was frequently depicted with the Crypton Vocaloids in videos and songs, despite not being part of the same company. Sometimes he and Gumi still are.
- Idiot Hair: A fairly noticeable one (look at the picture).
- Katanas Are Just Better: According to the official profile, this katana actually serves some musical function. Fittingly, in the Evillious Chronicles, the cursed vessel for his character's sin is a katana (though he isn't the main sinner in the songs set in in-universe Japan; that's actually Luka).
- Long-Haired Pretty Boy
- Mr. Fanservice: Even during his Joke Character days, he was portrayed as a handsome man running around in a fundoshi that barely covered his unusually sculpted rear (though Dancing Samurai, his first song, showed him as being bad with women). Aside from that, if he is a lover, he is usually played off as this. "The Madness of Duke Venomania" just took this trait Up to Eleven and deconstructed it.
- Obi-Wan Moment: In "Sayonara, Arigatou", his last day with Rin is spent bidding her farewell for the future, regretful that he could not live long enough for her to receive her "Kokoro".
- Otaku: How he's portrayed in the 2015 Niconico Cho Party concert. His room is filled wall to wall with Gumi merchandise, and he's constantly running around with a dakimakura (once with Gumi, the second time with IA).
- The Reveal: "Sayonara, Arigatou" reveals that he is Rin's creator in "Kokoro". Thanks to Adaptation Displacement, most people will tell you it was Len.
- Samurai Ponytail: His ponytail is a signature aspect of his design, befitting his samurai-inspired look.
- Serious Business: In Dancing Samurai, he believes that anyone who doesn't know how to dance should just die. Ouch.
- Spotlight-Stealing Squad: He, Gumi, and Una tend to be way more popular than the rest of the Internet Co. Vocaloids. Some may mistake them for Crypton Vocaloids even due to their popularity.
- Surprisingly Good English:
- Most of ROY-P's songs featuring Gakupo has him speaking Engrish (mostly for the choruses) at worst , but then you have "Pain of the Sins" a full-fledged, honest-to-God English song made using his Japanese voicebank.
- Although his English Voicebank is not yet out, it's not uncommon for Vocaloid users to make Gakupo sing in English. Take a look at these.
- Trademark Favorite Food: Eggplants. Some pictures even depict him with "Nasunoyoichi", a "steed" that is pretty much just a giant eggplant cow.
- Updated Re-release: His VOCALOID3 version, which updated his original voice as Native and gave him extra Power and Whisper voicebanks.
- His V4 update, however, was identical to his V3 voicebanks except with growl samples added.
- Vocal Dissonance: As is the case with voice provider, has a much deeper vocal range than one might expect from his Bishounen design.
- Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds: Literally in "Near Future City". He's hooked up to one of the machines that apparently contributed to instigating the apocalypse.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Has purple hair.
In the vein of Crypton Vocaloids' Appends, she also gets a voicebank update to be released in Vocaloid3 engine, which was named "Megpoid Extend", but is now officially "Vocaloid3 Megpoid" a notable acknowledge to her product name. On November 5, 2015, she had ten Japanese voicebanks released for Vocaloid4.
An English voicebank for Vocaloid3 was developed with several demos shown, and was eventually released on February 28, 2013, available at the English Vocaloid Store. It has been confirmed she will have another English voicebank, with production starting in 2016 or 2017.
- Ambiguous Disorder: Considering that for whatever reason many of her songs contain trippy imagery, or give mental issues to her caused by various reasons... (Often due to Love Hurts, e.g. "Ten Faced")
- All Love Is Unrequited: It used to be a fandom joke that Gumi was incapable of getting the one boy she loved in any given song. And a lot of the time, her crush would also be none the wiser until the very last minute.
- Bare Your Midriff: A variation in her standard costume, her shirt is very transparent for her navel to be visible. Played straight in her Vocaloid3 and Vocaloid4 costumes. Subverted in her design following the release of her English voicebank.
- Be Yourself: The Aesop she learns in Ten Faced.
- Bilingual Bonus: Her English Voicebank, though subverted in a way as it is sold separately from her other (Japanese) voicebanks.
- Boyish Short Hair
- Composite Character: In "Music Wizard of Oz", she plays the titular wizard, who comes off as a cross between the Wizard of Oz and Glinda the Good Witch.
- Depending on the Writer: While Vocaloids have no set personality usually, her fanon personality has shown to be as especially varied as her singing capabilities, even more so than Gakupo; it can run the gamut from Genki Girl to Girl Next Door to The Woobie to Tomboy to cool-headed badass and beyond. Heck, this is actually encouraged by Word of God, their official stance on her, including copyright, basically being one big Shrug of God.
- Did Not Get the Girl: Gender Inverted. An alarming number of her most popular songs have her romantic relationships just not working out. They usually end in a bittersweet way at best or tragically at worst.
- Hell, Love Hero is pretty much this trope: the song, with rather comedic lyrics. And its sung in the most awesome way possible.
- Flower Motifs: Due to her color scheme, she is often depicted with flowers in fanart.
- Goggles Do Nothing: Well...unless they're like Gakupo's katana.
- Guest Fighter: As part of her 5th anniversary celebration, she is part of a major BEMANI crossover event, and is an opponent character in Popn Music, although she is not playable.
- Honorary True Companion: Not to Gakupo's extent, but she is sometimes portrayed as this to the Crypton Vocaloids in videos and songs.
- Hotter and Sexier: See Underboobs below. And especially her whisper◊,adult◊, and english◊ versions.
- Jack-of-All-Trades: Her various VOCALOID3 voicebanks, which can be purchased as a bundle (except her "Native" voicebank, see below), give her quite a bit of versatility. According to Pixiv, she was anticipated to be used mainly for pop songs, but showed herself to have a very wide range.
- Licensed Game: Megpoid the Music#. She was also licensed off for Hatsune Miku and Future Stars: Project mirai, although she only appears in a few songs and isn't able to be interacted with. Later installments gave her her own Nendoroid model and costumes, but still kept her as a guest.
- Louis Cypher: In mothy's works, her largest role is as The Master of the Hellish Yard.
- Love Hurts: A constant victim of this in her songs. It was even what ultimately broke Nemesis, who she plays in the Evillious Chronicles (though to be fair this is fairly common in that series).
- Nonstandard Character Design: Just as Gakupo's design was done by a famous mangaka, GUMI got this treatment as well — hers was done by Masami Yuuki, the creator of Birdy the Mighty.
- Opera Gloves: Has them in her English voicebank design.
- Split Personality: Because Love Hurts and makes you crazy in the song "Ten Faced"..
- Also in "A Fake, Fake, Psychotropic".
- Spotlight-Stealing Squad: She and Gaukupo tend to be way more popular than the rest of the Internet Co. Vocaloids. Some may mistake them for Crypton Vocaloids even due to their popularity.
- Surprisingly Good English: Her English voicebank can produce this when it's put to good use. The earliest example of this is her second English Voicebank Demo, cover of Cindy Lauper's Time After Time.
- Also made obvious in the original Engish song ECHO, which is understandable even without subtitles.
- Took a Level in Badass: Our 16bit Warz
- Also, "Mozaik Role".
- Heck, her cameo in Judgement of Corruption tops all of these; She's pretty much SATAN!.
- Also, "Mozaik Role".
- Trademark Favorite Food: Carrots. Surely there's an Aesop hidden this fact somewhere... This is because she wears orange clothes and has green hair... Right?
- Updated Re-release: Her VOCALOID3 "Native" voicebank, which is basically a VOCALOID3 version of her original VOCALOID2 voicebank (which is now out of print). She later got another update for Vocaloid4.
- Underboobs: What her Vocaloid3 attires are most notable for. No, really.
- Yandere: "Sweet Shackles". It's like Gumi is channeling Yuno Gasai.
She was advertised with an animated movie, "Schwarzgazer", depicting her and her companion "Mosh" as secretly fighting a mysterious dark "virus" force that they must combat with their music. Failure to produce music results in weakness, which almost deletes Lily and Mosh before a nearby music producer, Yakuto, saves them by supplying them with music. So does that make Lily a sort of undercover superhero?
- Animal Motif: Bees.
- Bare Your Midriff
- Biker Babe: In "Schwarzgazer". Notable because she's the one who ride the bike, not her overly-muscular, broad-shouldered partner Mosh.
- Impossibly Cool Clothes
- Meaningful Name: Lily is the English translation of "Yuri".
- Rapunzel Hair
- Tattooed Crook: To emphasis her 'punk girl' imagery, she has some on her left wrist and her lower back that extends to both side of her waist. Fan artists tend to miss this one feature of hers because her clothes (if you can call those clothes) are often cover them.
- Updated Re-release: Has received a V3 Native update.
- Yandere: One of her first major hits, "Chloe", is a yandere song. Here comes yet another one, folks.
- "Marie-Luise", which was made by sele-P like "Chloe", also is an example, albeit with Unlucky Childhood Friend.
Based off the Japanese franchise character Gachapin, Gachapoid is distributed by Internet Co. Ltd. as the thirteenth Japanese Vocaloid. He is designed to appeal to young producers. His voice provider is Japanese voice actress, Kuniko Amemiya.
- Curtains Match the Window
- Moe Anthropomorphism: He gets his own "human version".
- Ridiculously Cute Critter
- Token Mini-Moe: Among the Internet Co's published Vocaloids.
- Updated Re-release: Initially wasn't planned to have a V3 release yet ended up receiving one anyway. Out of all the V3 vocaloids, his is the only one to be download only.
A Vocaloid using the VOCALOID3 engine, she was an avatar of VY1. As the Mascot of VOCALO Revolution, she was designed to help promote the growing Vocaloid culture, aiming to raise awareness and the acceptance of this culture. That's before Internet Co. Ltd, on June 8, 2011, adopted her design to become a new Vocaloid.
She was released on 21st December 2011, along with Oliver. She's voiced by Eri Kitamura.
- Badass Longcoat
- Hotter and Sexier: The only explanation for why she feels to wear a garterbelt over some very short shorts to hold up her stockings in her redesign. Her low-cut, cropped halter top also adds to this. For some reason she also has a Badass Longcoat though.
- Lady in Red: Before her redesign.
- Meaningful Name: Her name CUL is from the word "Culture". As stated above, she was used to help promote the growing Vocaloid culture.
- Of Corsets Sexy
- Red Eyes, Take Warning
- Spear Counterpart: REV, another VOCALO Revolution mascot which was an avatar for VY2.
- Unfortunate Name: Cul, as noted by many fans, means "ass" in French.
- Who Wears Short Shorts?: Her redesign.
Galaco is a limited voicebank offered exclusively in the Vocaloid Shop competition. She was first introduced in the PV of galaxias! of the band of the same name, and voiced by Kou Shibasaki. Eventually, she was officially released for VOCALOID3 under the name "Galaco NEO" on August 5, 2014 with an updated version of the original vocal (Red) and a new additional vocal (Blue).
- all lowercase letters: The name galaco is styled like this.
- Cool Crown
- Cosmic Motifs: galaco has space written all over her! Not only does she have a Punny Name related to galaxies (see Meaningful Name below), both of her designs make use of Star-Spangled Spandex, especially in her first design.
- Early-Bird Cameo: In a similar way to Tone Rion below, she first made appearances in merchandises in Vocaloid Store, but censored.
- Facial Markings: She has one triangle underneath each eye.
- Hime Cut
- Meaningful Name: Galaco's name is similar to the Greek word for milk, γαλακοςnote , where the word "galaxy" derived from. Which makes sense, considering she has a space-themed design.
- Multicolored Hair: Along with the blond and brunette long hair, she has multicolored bangs as well.
- Rapunzel Hair
- Star-Spangled Spandex: Her skirt, boots and tanktop have a galaxy-like motif. This is downplayed in her NEO design, which instead relegates the starry fashion to her leggings only.
- Surprisingly Good English: Here.
- Dangerously Short Skirt
- Fashionable Asymmetry: Her detached sleeves; short on the right arm, long on the left.
- Jack-of-All-Trades: Was designed to be this. Due to the versatile nature of the vocal, she can perform a variety of singing roles.
- Multicolored Hair: Dark brown at the head, red at the tips.
- Animal Motif: Butterflies. They appeared everywhere in "Chaos Theory" (later renamed "Beep Boop), and she had them as a reference to Shrignold for her "LOVE" video.
- Bastard Girlfriend: In "LOVE", she portrayed a failing, obsessive relationship from the abuser's point of view.
- Odango Hair: Her main look. She has an alternate one where her hair is cut short.
- Roger Rabbit Effect: In the music video for Chiaki Ito's "Charming Kiss", Chika herself appears alongside her voice provider to dance with her and drag her into her mirror.
- Rose-Haired Sweetie
- Show Within a Show: In "Charming Kiss", Chika appeared as the protagonist of the manga Chiaki Ito was reading, also titled Charming Kiss.
- The Unfavorite: She was voted the least popular Vocaloid of 2014.
The first original VOCALOID4 character developed for the company. She has two default modes— "Sugar", her softer bank, and "Spicy", her energetic bank. Released in July 2016. Her vocal provider is Aimi Tanaka.
Una later received a VOICEROID talk package in 2020.
- Curtains Match the Window: Although her hair is a slightly different shade of blue than her eyes.
- Cute Little Fangs
- Fashionable Asymmetry: Spicy more than Sugar, with radically different stockings, a cape over her skirt on one side, uneven streaks in her hair, a lightning bolt on one side of her hat, and a musical note painted on one cheek. Her Sugar design is more even, but still has mismatched socks and jewelry on one leg. Her Talk package adverts this entirely; pantyhose and upper garments are completely symmetrical.
- Meaningful Name: Her given name, Una, sounds like part of the word "unagi". She wears an eel hat in both of her forms.
- Multicolored Hair: Her twintails are a different color at the tip than the rest of it (Sugar has white, Spicy has yellow). Her Spicy design also has streaks of yellow in her bangs. Her TalkEX package instead has her lair end in pink tips.
- Odd Friendship: In fandom, she's often depicted as being friends with the VOICEROID Tohoku Kiritan, who is generally more deadpan than the always peppy Una.
- Rapunzel Hair: For a little girl she's packing some serious locks.
- Tomboy and Girly Girl: Her "Sugar" side is the girly one, while her "Spicy" side is the tomboy. They have pretty similar designs, but the Sugar one wears more frills and the Spicy one wears bolder, brighter colors and has a more eager expression. Both wear skirts, though.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair
