Hachune Miku (はちゅねミク) is recognized as a famous official derivative of Hatsune Miku. The term "Derivative" is used here to describe a fanmade Vocaloid character that is based on an already existing character.


This character was responsible for the start of the Item War system that eventually began, ending with the entry of Tako Luka later on. Despite fan belief, she is not actually holding a leek (riiki, リーキ), but a Welsh/green/spring onion (negi, or 葱).


Hachune Miku was created by Otomania (video) and Tamago (picture) and established via Hatsune Miku's version of Loituma Girl internet meme, eventually going on to becoming its own character. Miku Hachune is acknowledged as one of the first mascots to gain popularity within the Vocaloid fandom.

She is regarded a silent mascot by the fandom. In music videos and songs that have a singing voice in them, the voice is more of a representation of Hatsune Miku, rather than her actual voice. However, her voice can be heard in Project DIVA extend's opening (the version with voices).


Hachune (はちゅね) is a mispronunciation of Hatsune, which shows her childishness and generally silly disposition.


She is often seen in videos as a blank-eyed doll-like figure with a gaping mouth.
