 Info 


A fanmade will likely comply to one or more of the following types. These types were established during the Vocaloid 2 era and are still commonly used among the fandom. Notice, that the only official (title)loid is Vocaloid! Concept of loids was established from the fandom others are just done on a whim. [1][2] This page will list loid concepts under official companies for easier understanding.

What does Vocaloid mean?

The "loid" in the title of Vocaloid is presumed to be taken from Android, with Vocal placed at the beginning, so basically "Vocal(Singing) Android" with digital vocalization.

As Vocaloid grew in popularity gradually the fandom responded by creating their own loids based on the concept of it. Though there are the few that branch out to create their own series title. The Vipperloid and Utauloid was the earliest concept for (title)loid within the fandom, though the preferred title for Utauloid is just UTAU.

What does Fanloid mean?

Fanloid (commonly abbreviated from Fanmade Vocaloid) is term used to describe fanmade characters that are inspired by YAMAHA's Vocal Synthesizer Tool VOCALOID, the developers who use the software often personify the voice bank, creating a character avatar. In the Japanese fandom, they are often referred to as a Vocaloid variant (亜種) / derivative (派生キャラ). An example of course would be characters not officially developed by Vocaloid companies and entirely made by fans.

It is unknown how Yamaha and associated companies feel about the brand name (Vocaloid) being used for fanon purposes. So for characters that do not have an original series name, using [[Fanmade Vocaloid]] or [[Fanloid]] will suffice.

Can I create my own (title)loid name?

Of course you can! However, it won't be added to this list, as it is an unknown concept personal to yourself. If the time comes that your concept is recognized by the community, then it is likely to end up here. What you can do after creating your series type is place it in the following category [[Category:Vocaloid Series type]]. That way, others can find it and read about it.

English Vocaloids

  • Engloid

A term used to describe Vocaloids that are capable of singing in the English language, and/or Vocaloids that were created with the intention of singing in English. An example of a notable Engloid would be Sweet Ann.

  • Trivia

Not all fans appreciate the word 'Engloid', as they feel it alienates official English Vocaloids from the software series. It is noticeable that most Vocaloid fans don't refer to Japanese Vocaloids in another name upon mentioning, making it seem as if English Vocaloids are a different entity, when they are they are spawned from the same software as their Japanese counterparts.

However, Zero-G has acknowledged this term and have also used it themselves, since most fans use the term affectionately. Within Japan, Vocaloids from outside of Japan are also commonly referred to as "International" or "Overseas" Vocaloids.

  • Trivia

In contrast to the term "Engloid", some Vocaloid fans call the Japanese Vocaloid "Japloids", however, while it is acceptable to call English Vocaloids "Engloids", it is not highly acceptable to refer to Japanese Vocaloids as "Japloids". The reason given is because "Jap" is considered an offensive slur.

It is very rare that Japanese Vocaloids are given or referred to in a term besides the language they were programed in.
