Taiko is the genderswap of Taito, who is based on the official Vocaloid Kaito. Due to her being based on Taito, she is a sub derivative. Her name is a combination of "Kaito", "Taito", wherein "ko" pertains to a "child" or "girl", in Japanese. And the kanji "帯" which literally means 'belt' or 'sash', but is used to make up the Japanese word for bandage. The fandom often refers to her as being a yandere type, thus being a series type Yandeloid which is commonly spelled as Yandereloid (ヤンデレロイド).
From her initial design she is drawn with a masculine air. Taiko has very long black hair and is pale-skinned. She has bandages wrapped around her torso and legs, there is a bandage that goes over her eye and wraps around her head. She wears an open black jacket with purple trim, along with shorts and a slinging belt. It's suspected that she wears black boots and also black polished nails. The item she is said to carry is a giant Chupa Chups brand lollipop which is suspected to weigh 10kg (equal to 22lbs).
The fan artists of Taiko tend to create designs similar to her male counterpart or an exact copy of Kaiko's released designs. Her item also varies by fans, with the most common being a knife.
She likes Candies, her brother and "Bansoko" Aids (band-aids) and likes to be tied in bondage. She enjoys strawberry flavored lollipops, boiled rice, and cooking takoyaki as well.  She dislikes people chewing gum.
She is said to be the elder sister of Taito. Her bandages are not the result of self injury, unlike her brother. And she worries about his injuries, yet she is said to be yandere. But from what can be translated she is quite dexterous but at some point collided with a telephone pole.
- It is assumed that Taito is, unofficially, a sibling.
- Going by Piapro uploads the earliest drawing of Taiko was August of 2008. It is currently unknown if the uploader is indeed the creator.
