Vocaloid Character XDD
Many Vocaloid fans have created various forms of derived characters from the original Vocaloids refered as Fanmade Vocaloids. Some are only represented visually, and have no known voices, while others using the different octaves and/or voice configurations of an original. There are more than 1000 original Vocaloids combined, yet only a fraction of these are supported by their creators or other producers with actual singing or promotion. In Japan, these fanmade characters are never called "Vocaloids" on their own, but "characters derived from Vocaloids" or "derived characters". Most emerging derivations are coming from non-Japanese sources, like YouTube and DeviantArt. Also it should be note that not all the fans accept Fanmade vocaloids.
There have been several total conversions of the original vocaloids made to resemble certain stereotypes or pop-culture references and often include several vocaloids under a single banner. These total conversions change the style of both the songs they sing and the art they are shown in. Though mostly satisfying a niche audience, they have a devoted fanbase and have many songs to their name.Collective Fanmade VocaloidsEdit
Voyakiloid (read as "grouching vocaloid") is a group of derived Vocaloid characters that represents failure. These characters are often portrayed as negative, down and unhappy, unlike the typical mainstream characters. Several Voyakiloid characters have been made by fans that reflect frustration in getting them to sound and sing right, although this is not always the case.
The Hagane Vocaloids are a group whose image and songs are based around the heavy metal genre of music, particularly death metal and the majority being Nu-metal. They are often heard using the same voice setup as the original vocaloids but seldom use audio distortion to push their vocal ranges to extremes to achieve a growling effect. Most Hagane songs rely on double bass and blast beat drum techniques along with heavier tuned guitars and bass to give that "down" effect usually used in metal today to achieve quality 'breakdowns'.
Genderbent Vocaloids are Vocaloids with the gender switched. This is very common among Western fandom. Usually Genderbent Vocaloids are actually Vocaloid songs pitch-changed to create a male or female song; they are rarely songs made with a different voice configuration.
Human Vocaloids (referred to as such due to their vocaloid-centric nature) are live singers with Vocaloid-inspired avatars. Some of them may attempt to sound like a Vocaloid using their own voices. They usually sing music that were composed to be sung/or covered by any of the official/fanmade Vocaloids. They are prevalent in Nico-Nico Douga but are present as well in YouTube. They are sometimes called Uttate Mita in Nico-Nico Douga, though it pertains to singers that do not use such avatars.
Miku Hazure (外れミク Hazure Miku) is a Miku with black as her theme color: her hair, clothes, stockings and shoes are all black. Her character item is a red box opener, and she seems to have a thing for kanimiso. Illustrations on Piapro

Traditionally fanmades had links to the UTAU development, although recently users have began to consider or enforce UTAU copyright ownership on their UTAU voicebanks. Users making fanmades of either program may have to acknowledge the copyrights of UTAU names when naming their vocaloid fanmades. The overall impact of this developement it still unknown currently.
Some creators are exceptionally protective of their vocaloid's settings. if a user creates a "fanloid" sharing the same setting as a fan made in existance, it can cause arguments within some circles of fandom.
