The Vocaloid Answers Wiki will 'attempt' to display information about a Vocaloid's item and or common theme. The items, themes, companions and eventually the explanations should all be viewed with caution. Please, do not use or view this information as official or being widely accepted. This page is subject to interpretation, possible bias, and vandalism.
Thus this page is currently Semi-protected against new and unregistered users.
The "Item Wars" have slowly diminished and most are done for nothing more then fun. Items are determined from popular artwork, internet memes and ideas. It is basically a community effort to propose a common item. When the community can not decide, then an item war spawns, the character is left without an item or hovers between having one and not having one.
This page in no way dictates how the fandom should view items, but it does have standards for additions due to it being publicly accessible.

- This page list character items, themes, and companions that are acknowledge and unacknowledged.
- The items not recognized by an official company are considered unofficial. Therefore any entry that does not have the words "Officially acknowledged" (in blue) is not to be taken as legitimate.
- Other colored text include:
Unofficial (in red). This means fandom acknowledgment, but also subject to changes, which is the reason for the secondary text on some entries.
Not determined (in green). This means little-to-no fandom activity, or lack of sourced information. A discuss can be created to find an active source.
- The reference buttons are below the listed characters, this is attempt to provide evidence to readers that an item's connection has some status within the fandom.
- Notice to contributors
- Any edits deemed unacceptable will be reverted.
- Do not force an item onto this page, character items take community effort not a single persons made up mind.
- Please edit accordingly and with common sense, this page should not be edited with additional items unless sourced and or discussed. Acceptable sources are :
- Frequency of the item in fanworks by numerous amount of uploads.
- Notable mentions (aka. Shout-outs) from official staff of a Vocaloid's company.
- Official merchandise approved by a Vocaloid's company.
- Public forums or social sites where fans frequently agreed with suggestions. However, this is subjective.
- There is a reason why the item page and infobox parameter on the Vocaloid wiki was eventually abolished, both the item page and infobox became a target of edit warring for Vocaloids that did not have an item.
- Do note that despite the fact that some English Vocaloids have items assigned to them, they were not conceived through meme status and most were derived from the Vocaloid Otaku forums. Which leads to a debate of the current items being accepted or acknowledged by fans outside of the forum, as the results show the items are rarely referenced in the Vocaloid culture.
- Leon (Tulips / Flowers) Unofficial
- Lola (Frying pan) Unofficial
- Miriam (Lipstick) Unofficial
Leon's item is presumed to have its origin from his cover of "Saihate" and headcanon fanart because Leon officially has no traits.

Miriam's item was proposed due to the animation of a lipstick tube upon loading Stockley's website.
- Meiko (One cup Ozeki / Sake bottle) Officially acknowledged
- Kaito (Ice cream) Officially acknowledged
Their items are now seen in figurines and other sources. With Miku's item a success the fans moved onto Meiko and Kaito. Early works from 2008 depicts Meiko being a lover of alcohol, the reasons were never clear, varied from fan-to-fan and simply caught on with the fandom. Kaito's item was the result of a parody a producer did by using Hatsune Miku. Another producer with Kaito responded to the video and had Kaito make a statement about eating ice cream. This performance and proposed item was enough to boost Kaito's popularity.
- Sweet Ann (Fried chicken) Unofficial and debated
- Big Al (Pocket watch / Race car / Penguin) Unofficial

- Prima (Wine / Knife / Deadly implements) Unofficial
- Sonika (A Ring / Bell / Pineapple / Pineapple grenade) Unofficial and not determined
- Tonio (Martini) Officially acknowledged
Prima's proposed item is attempt to reference sophistication due to the origin of opera, while the weapons is in reference to those Western fans who attempted to download Vocaloid illegally. Sonika is the victim of 'item war', and it has yet to be settled, but isn't uncommon to see artwork containing the items, therefore her entry is marked in red. The ring is proposed based on her name being similar to Sonic the Hedgehog, the bells were quickly proposed based on her demo song "Ring my Bell", and a pineapple theme is reference to her colors and outfit top. There are comical mentions to simply combined the items and create a Pineapple grenade. Tonio's item was referenced in Twitter by "Sonika", but before that the Western fandom had already proposed alcoholic drinks simply based on Tonio's headcanon appearances and the stock model's other photos.
- SF-A2 miki (Cherries) Unofficial
- Kaai Yuki (Apples / Pudding / Recorder) Unofficial, generic
- Hiyama Kiyoteru (Coffee / Notebook) Unofficial, generic
- Nekomura Iroha (Hello Kitty items) Unofficial and not determined
SF-A2 miki was the victim of a short 'item war'. During her release the Japanese fandom proposed cherries in reference to her hair. However, a few other red items cropped up, but eventually the cherries became the popular choice. The references chosen are basic examples and don't show the magnitude of the situation. Yuki's current items are presumed to be based on overall design and personal stats. It is a similar situation for Kiyoteru, who is a teacher and thus associated with the items by design. Iroha never had directly proposed items and the suggestions for Hello Kitty items and apple themes largely comes from Western fans due to Iroha's origins.
- VY1 (Hand fan / Hair pin / Kimono) Unofficial
- VY2 (Wakizashi / Unagi pie) Unofficial

This item won favor over other proposed items such as an Orange for Rin and a Banana for Len, which are presumed to be based on their hair and clothing. It is Luka that the term 'Item War' is commonly associated with. The frozen tuna item succeed after many other objects were suggested and drawn for Luka.

- Oliver (Finch (birds) / Chainsaw) Unofficial
There is little activity for Oliver to have an actual item. Instead fanart depicts him with bird related themes or "James" the finch. These are considered artistic choices and not actual item proposals. However, there are sources outside of VocaloidOtaku and the wiki. The popular past time on Tumblr is the creation of "ASK-Blogs", these blogs are commonly produced under the guise that a fictional character is receiving and answering questions by the community. During Oliver's promotional release in 2011 a few appeared and became known.
On the 19th of November 2011 an anonymous questioner sent messages that appeared to be engagement proposals, this resulted in upsetting Ask!Oliver who told the Anon to go away. Another entry appeared on the 20th with an anonymous stating that they gave Oliver a chainsaw to ward off the previously creepy Anon. The incident appears to have popularized enough that the Chainsaw is personified as being female.
