(Picture in the background is supposed to be a grumpy Hatsune Miku. Sorry that you can't see very well.)

UGLY STAMP IS UGLY. :x

Anyhow... I've seen Mikutards claim (false) accusations of certain characters copying from Miku's design - most notably, her pigtails. I think Miku is now victim to the One Mario Limit in a visual way - just like you never see video game characters named Mario anymore, it doesn't look like we're going to see characters with green (or blue) pigtails anymore. Miku's hair seems to have become iconic. :XD:

It's even more hysterical when the Mikutards accuse characters created before Miku was of being a Miku "rip-off", just because they have green (or blue) pigtails. :lol:

Also, wondering about the title? It's related to this: [link]

I love Miku, but this is very true.

I wouldn't be surprised if the Mikutards shit on Mion and Shion for being a rip-off Miku for having green hair. Smh...

These Mikutards are so irrational.

There was a Chinese Vocaloid named Xingchen/Stardust who had to get her pigtails worn in a different style because people said she'll look like Miku. She wears her pigtails low. Xingchen has purple hair with a white tint because she's meant to have an interstellar theme that's why her name is also Stardust. I see her hair as bluish green, not straight up green (yes sometimes she's given straight up green hair like in Senbonzakura).

Yes, I've seen people get angry at a picture of an ice fairy mascot that was printed a cough candy medicine package because she was illustrated to have light blue pigtails similar to Snow Miku (have to admit it's rather amusing)

Do you know Stardust? vocaloid.wikia.com/wiki/Stardu…
Read the 'Appearance'. That's enough to give you shock.

Doesn't help that in Japanese "ao" used to mean blue AND green before "midori" became the word for green, thus resulting in Miku covering the full blue-to-green color range (and thus making a lot of characters seem more "Miku-y".)

Well, most people immediately think of her when they think about blue pigtails.

They aren't really "green" ponytails. They are more of a dull blue color.

On the contrary, they're turquoise.

In my comic, "The Jitterbugs", there's a kid named Wendy who has green pigtails. She has no relation to Miku whatsoever (Wendy is an American second grader with braces, a lime-colored sundress, and flip flops) and will not tolerate your whining about hairdos and copyrights and all that kangblabla.

I agree with this. I made an UTAU that is based off Miku. People make characters like this because they love her. There are probably thousands of characters out there in reference to her.

Well, Miku's pigtails are teal, but I have seen what you mean. Aoki Lapis has been bullied for being "A Miku copy" and I only found about about her two days ago, but I love her and all the Vocaloids so much. I just wanna hug them all regardless of their "similarities". I'd also hug Utaus and fanmade Vocaloids because they're just as cute as Miku! X3

I'm gonna give my green-haired OC pigtails to piss off people.

Also, hair down to the shoulders with ribbons isn't Haruhi, to all who annoy us about Yuri's design.

I absolutely love Angel Beats. :D

My friend drew a picture of a cute pigtailed girl, and she colored the hair green. Someone called her a Miku plagiarizer when they saw her picture.

WTF? That doesn't make sense?! Miku has been shown in other styles before, and hell other vocaloids are based on her style?...WTF?!!!:| (Blank Stare)
