Hatsune Miku is a voice persona created by Crypton Future Media for the Vocaloid software. She is usually portrayed as a 16-year-old girl with long, aqua twintails and light blue eyes. Her iconic clothes include a blue tie, a short black skirt, black thighhighs, and the number "01" tattooed on her arm. She is voiced by the Japanese voice actress Saki Fujita. Her name means "First Sound from the Future" because she is the first character of Crypton's "Character Vocal Series."

The Vocaloid software was produced by Yamaha, and is an engine for developing a synthesizer for the human voice. A vocalist records samples of their voice of various syllables. An artist can then use those voice samples at various pitches to create a seamless voice line, as if someone was actually singing, even though it is all computer generated. Hatsune Miku is one of these voices created by Crypton Future Media using the Vocaloid engine. The voice bank was originally created using Japanese syllables, so it works best for Japanese songs. After her base software was created, she quickly grew in popularity. Crypton continued her development, releasing an Append expansion, giving her different voice "flavors" such as Soft, Sweet, and Dark. A 3D animation program called MikuMikuDance was also released for her, which gives people an easy way to create their own Hatsune Miku animations.

Hatsune Miku's first appearance in a video game is Project DIVA, released in 2009 for the PSP. She sings a majority of the songs, including "World is Mine" and "The Disappearance of Hatsune Miku". As the player plays the games, Miku dances and sings in the background. Additional outfits for her can be unlocked in the game's shop, giving her a wide arrange of clothes to choose from. She can use her yellow outfit from "Yellow" or her princess outfit from "World is Mine," just as examples. Miku is accompanied by other Vocaloid characters that Crypton released, including Kagamine Rin, Kagamine Len, Megurine Luka, KAITO, and MEIKO.

Hatsune Miku's other games include 5 main games and other spin offs. Each additional Project DIVA game introduces new songs to play and new outfits for Miku and her friends. An arcade port of the game called "Project DIVA Arcade" was released that features a unique button layout. She has also appeared in a spin off game for the 3DS and ports of the Project DIVA series were released for the PS3 and PS4. A game called "Miku Flick" was also released for the iOS system.

Miku appears in many more songs than just the ones featured in Project DIVA. Her voice is used is over 100,000 songs, making her (unoffically) one of the most prolific singers in the world. The reason for this is because the Vocaloid software can be used as any other instrument. Artists don't need the original singer or even need the ability to sing in order to use her in their songs. Her unique voice and range also allow her to be used in a wide variety of songs. She also has an English voice bank that allows her to sing English songs, though with a noticeable Japanese accent.

Outside of the games, Miku is a popular mascot in Japan and internet culture. Anything with her iconic blue twintails can be attributed to Miku. She makes guests appearances across all kinds of media, including games and TV shows. An anime titled "Black Rock Shooter" is based on one of the songs sung by Miku. She even appears on an Akatsuki rocket made by the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency, which was sent to explore Venus. She has appeared in several concerts worldwide where a holographic projection of Miku sings and dances to her songs with a live band. Her first such concert was for Animelo Summer Live in Japan in 2009. Her influence has spread worldwide outside of Japan. In 2014, a holographic image of her performed "Sharing Your World" on the Late Show with David Letterman show live in front of millions of viewers.

Crypton Future Media has partnered with other companies to create variations on Hatsune Miku's appearance. They partnered with Good Smile to create their own line of racing cars. Images of "Racing Miku" appeared on the cars of racing teams in Japan. Crypton began sponsoring racing teams in the 2009 racing season. Racing queens in the teams' pitstops have also dressed in Miku's costumes and appeared during the races. Crypton has also partnered with the city of Sapporo to celebrate their winter festivals. Every year, a new "Winter Miku" design is created using fan submissions and a fan poll. The winning design is created officially by Crypton. This design is used in various art, figures, and is promoted throughout Sapporo's winter festival. This tradition of Winter Miku began in 2010.

In terms of personality, Miku doesn't have much in terms of official personality. This was an intentional decision by Crypton to give artists and fans the ability to interpret Miku's behavior how they wish. As a result, she has a wide spectrum of personalities across various works, ranging from bubbly to loyal to sadistic to pessimistic. Each personality of Miku gives each of her songs a unique flavor depending on the artist. The same range of personalities also applies to her art and other derivative works. She can be depicted as a happy, smiling girl in bright clothing in one piece of art, and have a blank, stone-cold gaze in bloodied clothing in the next. Fans often won't debate about the "true" personality of Miku, since she can change depending on the song.

Many fan works depict her as knowing the other Vocaloid personalities that Crypton has produced, including Rin, Len, and Luka. Again, their actual relationships vary depending on the artist, though they are generally friends. Some artists will feature Miku performing with other characters, such as a duet with Rin or all four of them appearing in a song together. Though Hatsune Miku is the most popular of Cryton's characters, these other characters also have various songs and fans.
