Zhiyu Moke VOCALOID4


Zhiyu Moke (徵羽 摩柯) is a Chinese VOCALOID developed and distributed by Shanghai HENIAN Co. Ltd. He was released for the VOCALOID4 engine in August 2018.[1]

Moke was a runner up entry to the first "VOCALOID™ CHINA" contest in 2012, held for choosing the design of the first Chinese VOCALOID and was a Vsinger supporting character for four years.[2] On December 8, 2016, Moke was confirmed to be in production along with Mo Qingxian.[3]

His voice provider is Shangqing Su (苏尚卿; Sū Shàngqīng), a Chinese voice actor from 729 Studio.

ConceptEdit

According to the short animation series promoting VOCALOID CHINA, Moke is a genius with an IQ of 168. Even though he always wears an innocent and warming smile, he is actually the most Otaku of all Otaku. By starting threads in forums, editing, and uploading MVs, he is seen as a "god" by some people on the internet. He is sometimes mistaken as a girl and even though he claims he hates it, there are rumors of a popular cross-dressing cosplayer appearing in various comic conventions who looks very similar to him, however, the truth is still unknown. Because he usually doesn't talk, most people will take him as a "nice boy", but he will reveal his true Otaku self when he is with close friends. He acts somewhat like a professional debater when talking about anime or other Otaku topics, but tends to react poorly to subjects that do not interest him.[4]

In 2017, according to Shanghai HENIAN's official website, Moke is listed as a Sagittarius and that he is mixed race. It was later added that he is a high school student and that he is good at street dance. It also mentions that he fears loneliness. He has a sense of dependency on the others in the band and wishes to be useful to them.[5][6]

EtymologyEdit

His original name was MOKO, however, this was dropped because it was written in a Japanese naming style rather than Chinese.

Zhǐ (徵) and (羽) are the fourth and fifth notes of the ancient Chinese pentatonic scale. His first name, Mókē (摩柯), originates in Buddhism (摩柯婆罗多 Mókēpóluóduo, i.e. Mahabharata).

AppearanceEdit

The design was originally drawn by SAKU, but was refined and redrawn by illustrator ideolo.

Located on Moke’s hip in his debut design, there is a green charm with a Devanagari letter "च" (ca) which represents the "Metal" element, the "West" position, the color "white", and the "Autumn" season. This character’s Chinese equivalent is "商" (Shāng), one of the 5 Traditional Chinese melody characters which corresponds to D (re).[7]

Moke's V4 design was illustrated by TID. His color scheme changed from white and light blue to white and dark blue. His new design was more sailor-inspired compared to the debut design. His pants were white rather than black and his boots became lace-up with the Devanagari letter located on the sides. His hat has a keyboard and soundwave design on it.
