Taito is a popular yandere derivative of the official Vocaloid Kaito. His name is simultaneously a pun on "Kaito" and a combination of the two kanji "帯 " ('belt' or 'sash,' used to make the word for 'bandage') and "人" ('person').
Taito is black and purple themed where Kaito is white and blue, plus various bandages and a medical eyepatch or another bandage over his right eye. His coat is usually open with no shirt underneath and might hang off his shoulders instead of being worn. Depictions of his hair range from purple to black and his eyes are purple or red. The scarf, if it is included at all, is white or purple and often bloodied. Although not mentioned by the creator, fans have chosen an icepick as his character item.
Taito is a Yandeloid who cares deeply for his master. He is known to cause harm upon himself and show off his inflicted wounds. It's said that he has a special technique to make sure his master has number one song rankings.
He is so close to his master, that any other Vocaloid approaching the master is instantly hated by him.
Taito is described as a black sheep, shunned for his obsession to inflict harm upon himself for no reason, making himself somewhat a masochist. This is why he has bandages on himself all the time. He is a fiercely loyal ally but a frightening enemy when scorned or crossed.
Other fan descriptions explain that the wounds are the result of him and Kiku quarreling frequently.
He is often mentioned as having a "Yandere" Mode, which only Zeito has seen and lived through.
Taito exists as one of many Shion derivatives. Any further official biographical information by the creator is unknown.
He has a slightly higher pitched voice than Kaito, typically by about a whole step, though sometimes lower when in "Yandere Mode". Typically he can use Kaito's regular voice setup. Alternatively, Azuralunar on YouTube has made a voice configuration for Taito.

- Taito is one of many "pitchloids".
- In the new Project DIVA game, Project DIVA X, there is a Kaito module that is dark purple as Taito, and bares a striking resemblance to Taito, aside from the module's absence of the bandages.
