In September 4, 2007, 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. Hachune Miku is acknowledged as one of the first mascots to gain popularity within the Vocaloid fandom. It is Hachune's presence that is responsible for the start of the Item War system that eventually began dying out with entry of Tako Luka later on. Her staying power resulted in being recognized by Crypton who adopted other derivatives such as: Sakine Meiko, Akita Neru, Yowane Haku, and Tako Luka.
Her personality does not appear to be defined by her original creators, instead the fandom displays her personality has being a silly chibi character who does random actions.
Hachune (はちゅね) is a mispronunciation of Hatsune (はつおと), which contributes to her childishness and generally silly portrayals.
Hachune Miku's design is directly based on Hatsune Miku, a VOCALOID2 developed and distributed by Crypton Future Media, Inc., Hachune Miku is drawn in a super deformed style. The notable differences is her blank eyes, gaping mouth, and swirly pink cheek marks. On her left upper arm is the red mark "01", which is Hatsune Miku's series number. She is shown to be carrying around a welsh spring onion, negi (葱) in Japanese. Despite fan belief, she and Hatsune are not actually holding a leeks, this incorrect information came from the result of the popular flash animation known as "Leekspin".
