Tako Luka (たこルカ) is an officially recognized derivative, and the result of creativity of imagining Luka's hair in the form of an octopus, in the same manner as Miku Hachune. This octopus had a very important involvement in Vocaloid fandom, most notably in the Japanese community. Both Tako Luka and Miku Hachune are seen as mascots side by side with their source characters.The word " Tako " means octopus , In english her name is changed to Octopus Luka .


Tako Luka is the indirect result of the Character Item War that was made to determine Luka's character item. Tako Luka was created by Sangatsu Youka (三月八日), aka. Sanpachi, after realizing Luka's hair reminded him of an octopus. Her creation marked the end of the cyberskirmish that ensued in the wake of Luka's announcement and launch.

Acceptance into Vocaloid

Tako Luka is one of the Vocaloid derivatives that became officially recognized by Crypton Future Media, the publisher of the Character Vocal Series for Vocaloid 2. The other derivatives bearing this distinction are Meiko Sakine, Neru Akita, Haku Yowane, and Miku Hachune.


MikuMikuDance (MMD), 3D software
An MMD model of Tako Luka was created in January 2009 by modeler Masisi. See the Tako Luka (Masisi) page for details, and also see other Tako Luka models.
Project Diva (PD), game
Tako Luka makes random cameos in the PSP game, Hatsune Miku ~Project Diva~ and again in its sequel. Usually she is spotted scampering around the scene or waving her tentacles at the viewer.
Fanmade Promotional Videos (PV)
Tako Luka has a history of fanmade videos. She is usually dancing, hiding in her jar, or hanging around a setting with other Vocaloids. Most of the time she is seen resting on Megurine Luka's head.
Official licensed Tako Luka have been produced, such as phone charms and plush toys. She is also bundled with a Megurine Luka Nendoroid. If more than one version of Tako Luka is sold of any given item, a lottery is usually established for the item wherein one of 3 faces are able to be bought. However, the buyer will not be able to determine which of the 3 he or she receives. So far, this has been carried out with the Tako Luka plush doll and the charm.
