Most Popular Vocaloids In History

Due to their massive fame in the media industry and because like all my other polls no has bothered to make a poll on them, I decided to take the liberty and save everyone else the trouble.

So vote away!

Oh and have fun singing and dancing while your at it :)

The Top Ten

1 Kagamine Twins (Len & Rin)

I LOVE the Kagamine twins! Their songs in nice and they are both cute!

These twins are AMAZING. The others are good, but the fact that they come in two in awesome, not to mention that they are both extremely good-looking and they were voiced by the same person. The mirror image thing, and the twincest ( I admit ashamedly) are also pretty great bonuses.

Who could be better than these two? Miku is only one, and her voice is too high-pitched I think the twins are super super hot sexy and they sing awesomely as well, so they can't be beaten

I just LOVE the Kagamine Twins! Their designs and voices are just pitch-perfect! In fact, while I'm writing this, I'm listening to Servant of Evil. And I cry every time I'm actually focused on the song and not the computer...

Len is definitely my favorite out of the two, but I love Rin, too! Especially Tokyo Teddy Bear and The Lost One's Weeping.

Their songs are meaningful even if they seem cheerful at first glance--like Electric Angel.

Their duets are THE BEST! But I also really like listening to their individual songs just so I can get a clear picture of what their voices would be like singing other songs.

You can pretty much open a Japanese song and tell me to imagine Rin or Len is singing it. I'm sure I can get a clear voice in my head.

2 Hatsune Miku Hatsune Miku Hatsune Miku, sometimes referred to as Miku Hatsune, is a humanoid persona voiced by a singing synthesizer application developed by Crypton Future Media.

I like Miku because of her voice, the style' the way of singing and especially her sweet and charming voice. I'm actually addicted to her beautiful songs!

Mikus voice is just the best and her outfit of course too, hehe. Well, Ok, Lukas too, but but in combination with her hair and all, makes miku perfect

When it comes to the most POPULAR, Miku is a total win! Even people who have no idea what Vocaloid is can recognize her face in an instant. She's all over the Internet! I don't know why people are voting on their personal favorite; isn't there somewhere else that you can do that? This is most popular, not favorite. It doesn't matter how high pitched her voice is, and how much you don't like her, because this isn't about that! Actually READ the title before voting and commenting, people!

When I didn't know what a Vocaloid was, I could even recognise Miku in an instant, so I guess she's the most popular. Anyways, even if her voice is high-pitched, she's still REALLY popular. And with her hair and other stuff, she's practically amazing.

3 Megurine Luka Megurine Luka Megurine Luka is a humanoid persona voiced by a singing synthesizer application developed by Crypton Future Media, headquartered in Sapporo, Japan.

LUKA IS SIMPLY THE BEST! Her voice is not too deep and not too high pitched it's just right. Her singing is Lovely and becomes better the more I listen to her. Her songs consists of many emotions that just surprises you. Her appearance is charming, beautiful, elegant and just too much for words. Her beautiful hair gets me all the time! Her English is the ultimate and when she does you can almost feel the emotion she's trying to give out! She's Awesome, Cool and totally Amazing!

Luka is just so amazing and sings with a meaning and you can feel her emotion when she is singing. She has a wide range in my opinion and does English really well (gumi too) and I feel like she deserves more credit. Miku is really popular and so are Len and Rin. They are amazing too but Luka is just so talented and well rounded and I don't really see a flaw with Luka. She isn't too high or too low. She is just right. Plus her outfit slays and her hair is basically what I WISH MY HAIR LOOKED LIKE

Luka is amazing shes pretty sweet and a bit mean like me but still she has a beautiful voice and the kagamine twins are always first or second just because there more popular and were made first doesn't mean there better then all the other vocaloids the same for miku I am not judging other peoples opinions but I am just saying and I think luka is the best vocaloid to me I am a huge fan of her

For my school's talent show, I'm singing "Magnet" by Miku and Luka. My friend's doing Miku's part and I'm doing Luka's. MIGRAINE LUKA IS THE BEST!

4 Kagamine Len Kagamine Len Kagamine Len is a Japanese male Vocaloid2 developed by Crypton Future Media and voiced by Shimoda Asami. He was originally released along with Kagamine Rin on December 27, 2007 as Kagamine Rin/Len (CV02), but had the updates of Kagamine Rin/Len (CV02) Act 2 (on July 18, 2008), Kagamine Rin/Len Append more.

His pre-pubescent voice is just the cutest, not mention how adorable he looks! He's the first Vocaloid I actually liked.

Third favorite male Vocaloid. Listen to Adolescence.

Love his songs and that look. That voice is awesome.

Len has always been my favorite, and one of the things I liked about him was his voice, and how high his voice can go! (I know this next part is for most vocaloids) I love how he is portrayed in different ways through all of the songs he is in! Basically, what I'm saying is that Len is my favorite. :3

5 Kagamine Rin Kagamine Rin Kagamine Rin & Len are humanoid personas voiced by a singing synthesizer application developed by Crypton Future Media, headquartered in Sapporo, Japan.

Best vocaloid much better than Miku Don't get me wrong I love me but I think that she sings better than miku I think she deservs a little bit more spotlight because she's always cast in the shadows behind miku and frankly she was real I would feel bad for her because she is a great character. I also love the relation she has to Len they are two characters that can always depend on each other

I love her sadistic songs (please dun find me weird, but yea), etc. The lost one's weeping, Tokyo Teddy bear, Meltdown

She is awesome and I feel she looks more realistic than other vocaloids, probably because I look a lot like her

Love her songs

6 Kaito Kaito KAITO is a humanoid persona voiced by a singing synthesizer application developed by Yamaha Corporation using their new Vocaloid singing synthesizer technology under the codename of "Taro".

Kaito is just amazing, his voice, his demeanor, his looks, his style overall, just everything. He definitely does deserve more recognition and opportunities. Especially being the first male

Kaito is one of the first vocaloids and deserves more likes and songs way more songs that shows how badass he is also more sad songs

VOCALOID can not go on without Kaito! He is cute, sexy, seductive and his voice is extremely gorgeous. How can anyone hate him?

Kaito is very well known for his iconic blue, the loving ice cream charater and his high flexibility and realistic voice, makes it pretty easy to use to make different genre of songs. Most of all, he is the 1st male vocaloid in japan around 10 years back and he is still very popular now!

7 Gumi Gumi

As others have pointed out, Gumi has a beautiful voice, which sounds the most human out of all Vocaloids. Also, although she does not have a lot of popular songs, most of them are ones that I can relate to, and find myself listening to everyday. Rin, Len, and Miku are all extremely popular (possibly due to advertisement and appearance), but Gumi is honestly the most realistic: her voice is not too high pitched, and she's not stuck as an adolescent for the rest of her life.

Gumi is the best sounding vocaloid2. She has a sweet, Miku-like voice yet is lower and more human. And although her design might not be the easiest to remember or draw, it's still at least as good as Miku's. Let's let the most realistic take the stage instead of the most advertised!

Gumi is so cute and in my opinion the best songs out of all the vocaloid characters and she has green hair... Awesome so in my opinion she is the best and cutest.

Like her vm

8 VY2

I LOVE HIM he is so awesomely pink unlike luka he can so rock that color and he wasn't really supposed to have a character but fans love him so much to give him one AWESOME right?

VY2 is the highest quality male vocaloid and probably the best in my opinion

Love him love him can't belive this yay I'm gonna go die in the corner

VY2 isn't my favourite. I'm not super fond of his voice(not saying it's bad it's not) and his given design( the VY's have no given design) by the fans just doesn't appeal to me. He's not BAD he's just not one of my favourites. I'm actually surprised since I Like a lot of the 'loids

9 Oliver

Oliver was, I think, the third vocaloid I listened to (the firsts being the Kagamine Twins). I've actually left Oliver alone for quite a while now, going more towards Piko and Fukase. I mean, I really like them but I've just realized that, every night, I listen to at least one song of Oliver - preferably Circus Monster or Mad World.

His voice just has something that makes it perfect for creepy, melancholic and disturbing song, which I really like. But when he sings happy songs, it's not like when Kageyama (from Haikyuu!) tries to smile. Even happy songs suit him somehow! Listen to Sleepyhead if you don't believe me.

He has a place in my heart that no other vocaloid could ever replace. (Sorry, Piko!)

I don't even care if he's not that popular. I feel that the most talented people in this world go unnoticed or are in the shadow of their more advertised companions (Miku, I'm looking at you). But, if you ask me, he's just so. His voice is pretty realistic, his design ...more

FACT! He sings better English than Miku
FACT! He does not have a Japanese accent when singing in English, unlike Miku
FACT! I can actually understand him
FACT! He isn't an English Len and they're completely different in body, voice and spirit
FACT! He is a singing synthesizer yet I believe he's real in the hearts of his fans.
FACT! I'm getting tired of saying FACT!
Oh dear, I'm so sorry Yuuma, but Oliver needs me. Len.. Ah you'll be just fine without me.
And... *checking who's number 1 in the list* FINALLY! A LIST WHERE MIKU ISN'T NUMBER1! This just made my day!

Well, he has been my first vocaloid thing I listened to, and I like the fact that he could sing in English, so... And I guess that he looks cute o///o. It's nice to see that he's in the top ten, I guess?

I haven't heard Oliver's voice yet but I don't blame him for pumpkin spice dummy or his gay song. I think he should meet up with Shota! (Len)

10 IA IA IA is a humanoid persona voiced by a singing synthesizer application developed by 1st Place Co., Ltd., headquartered in Meguro, Japan. They use Yamaha Corporation's Vocaloid 3 singing synthesizer technology. Her voice is sampled by Lia.


Her voice is AMAZING! Not too high, not too low. Try listening to Six Trillion years and an Overnight Story. Such a catchy and emotional song. IA is a Vocaloid3 with an amazing voice, amazing concept, and amazing songs!

I am just so happy that Miku isn't first. It's about time.


I think that IA should be way higher on the list... Did you know IA sang almost all the songs in the Kagerou Project song series? She also sang A Tale of Six Trillion Years and One Night, which is a catchy and emotional song. I really don't care if this list is for "Most Famous Vocaloid, " because I KNOW that IA has potential. Try listening to her (beautiful) voice and you will see why I think she could be the most famous Vocaloid. GO IA~!

IA is amazing! Her voice is so sweet, not too high, not too low. Just listen to six trillion years and a night an you'll be obsessed in no time! In my opinion IA should be way higher than down here, she doesn't get enough respect even though she blows all the other vocaloids miles back INCLUDING Hatsune Miku.

IA needs to be in a high position °^°. Just listen to Steel Bird. That will make you think the same.

The Contenders

11 Meiko Meiko MEIKO is a humanoid persona voiced by a singing synthesizer application called Vocaloid developed by Yamaha Corporation.

Meiko has a Voice like No Other Vocaloid! She can go in a Very low Octave, or she can go SUPER High! Her Duets with Kaito are wonderful as both of them make Harmony when they sing together. I think they should make a Meiko and Kaito concert sometime, it might up her Popularity! I don't understand how she isn't up in the top 10. She might have a Different Voice, but once you get used to it your stuck to her like Glue.

Meiko is the first vocaloid meaning she is sometimes underrated but she is a unique vocaloid and doesn't sound similar to any other! Her voice banks screams power and uniqueness. She has one of the most clear English voice banks and she has a wide range. She can go to extremely low ranges and extremely high ranges effortlessly. She isn't a high pitched altered soprano but can sound like one easily.

I just can't understand why Meiko is so underrated. I mean, her voice is just BEAUTIFUL! Just because she's from series 1 or whatever doesn't mean she's not as good as the rest! Her voice is filled with emotion and she's just... Beautiful. MEIKO FOREVER

Meiko has a realistic voice! She needs more love! She can go well with any Vocaloid, as long as they sing at the same pitch as her! GO MEIKO! - SeeU

12 Iroha Nekomura

Iroha's voice is awesome and it's realistic sounding too! Some people complain how her voice sounds, but in truth, it's the person using her that need to work on their skills in using it. So Iroha's voice will sound good if used correctly. She really needs more fans and if she reaches the top spot or at least top 3, it would be a good change. Listen to some covers using her by fruutella! The covers fruutella makes using Iroha make it sound like they're actually Iroha's original songs.

Iroha is an awesome Vocaloid, and she needs a lot more love. I know her voice and design don't match up, but her voice is unique and I actually love her design. To people who are reading this:Iroha needs more fans!

Iroha has a very unique voice that cannot be made by mixing and two vocaloid voices together. If used correctly she can sing high or low and sing like a pro! She also likes Hello Kitty AND wears pink!

She is definitely underrated! I'm really surprised more people don't like her.

13 Kamui Gakupo Kamui Gakupo

Most people think of gakupo and remember him only because of Dancing Samurai, when there is a whole world of different music that comes with him. He has a such a special voice, which I believe is more effective at reaching people's hearts than the others. Not to mention, he's quite beautiful as well! Who else has ankle length purple hair and a music katana? His sound is incredibly versatile, especially in Sayonara Memories. The power of eggplants is strong!

Gakupo was the first Vocaloid I ever REALLY liked. I liked Meiko and Luka for their range and especially how low they could go, so when I listened to Gakupo...He became my favorite Vocaloid right then and there. I don't exactly like Gackt's songs, (His voice performer) but used with Gakupo, it's a whole new experience. I also love traditional Japanese characters, so that just added on.

Gakupo has the most realistic voice out of the Vocaloids, (in my opinion) but only if used properly. His voice is used for a different type of music, not the usual happy-skippy-doo-the robotic songs often performed by Vocaloids, but a more suave and cool type, which fits his personality very well.He himself is quite suave and collected. He should be, by far the best Vocaloid.

Kamui Gakupo, in my opinion, is the best male voice ever! Listen to Discord, Lost Memory, (or it can be called Immoral memory... Although it also has Kaito and Len sing in it) and Joker. THE BEST SONGS. I do know that Dancing Samurai is popular too.

I really like how his deeper notes sound. Sometimes I need a break from the high pitches of the others.

14 SeeU

Though people complain that her voice sounds weird and her design looks like "too much" of a Vocaloid, it isn't! Her voice is really awesome, and she can speak Korean and Japanese. Also, SBSArtech is really going to make her into a trilingual Vocaloid - Japanese, Korean, and English.

Most unique vocaloid with numerous language capabilities. Also the first Korean vocaloid... So far

Her design is awesome and her voice is too! I love the fact that she can speak Korean, Japanese, and English!

She is most definitely the best, her outfit is awesome, her singing is the best! I love Seeu!

16 Big Al
17 Sonika

All I have to say is listen to creepy song and you will be hooked on SoNIKA.

One of the best English VOCALOIDS by a long shot.

She's my favorite and I love her song

18 Akita Neru Akita Neru

Uh, Neru isn't actually a Vocaloid, she is a Deviation of Hatsune Miku and was created due to frustration while working with Miku's program. Neru means sleep or sleepy in Japanese.

I LIKE YOUR HAIR SEXY.. SHES SO HOT.. Sorry if its inappropriate!

Akita neru is the best vocaloid there is. I wish they would make her official! NERU IS AWESOME.

If only she could become official

19 Piko Utatane

Piko has such potential... I think he could've become great and popular if the Kagamine twins hadn't been around at his release time. His voice isn't perfect, but it's somewhat amusing to listen to. We love you, Piko!

People focus on the most popular Vocaloids such as Miku, Len, Rin, Kaito, etc. But they never seem to pay attention to other Vocaloids because they got their eyes glued on Miku, etc. Piko is my favorite Vocaloid, he sounds nice with VYV2. I'm really disappointed that he's number 19, but maybe some day he will be popular.

I love how Piko's voice can be either mature or boyish, since most other vocaloids can't change like that. His design is also unique, fitting, and not to mention cute! I especially loved him in "Shoot on Tokyo".

Piko is easily my favorite vocaloid. He definitely needs more attention. Did I mention that he seems to be the only vocaloid with (implied) heterochromia iridum (different eye colors)?

Piko is very cute, his design is awesome, his voice suits his personality well, and that antenna on his head! Do I need to say it?! Listen to his cover of tsukeru tsukema!
