Murasaki Shion (紫咲シオン) is a female Japanese Virtual YouTuber associated with hololive, debuting as part of its second generation of VTubers alongside Minato Aqua, Nakiri Ayame, Yuzuki Choco and Oozora Subaru.
|"Hellshio! Murasaki Shion here!"
A child that randomly appears around the Underworld Academy... though she's actually an adult (or so she says). A self-proclaimed talented dark magician of noble birth (or so she says).
She almost never actually says "Hellshio."
|"Hellshio! Murasaki Shion here!"
A random self-proclaimed child (though she is probably an adult) who appears around the Demonic-Realm Academy. She calls herself a highborne black magician (probably).
She can barely say her greeting, “Hellshio”.
Shion is a smug, cheeky brat ("kusogaki") who speaks bluntly without the usual politeness/consideration associated with the Japanese language, and flirts shamelessly with other hololive members. She wants to be seen as an adult, but thanks to her childish appearance and mannerisms, all attempts by Shion to appear adult-like end up looking very silly. She has a friendly rivalry with Minato Aqua, and the two can often be seen playing petty and mostly harmless pranks on each other.
One of her most iconic cries is her guttural scream of "NEEEEEEE." This was most famously uttered by Shion after Natsuiro Matsuri revealed that Shion's wet sneezing sounds were heard by Matsuri's listeners in one of her livestreams.
Her Twitter account was opened on 1 August 2018 while her YouTube channel was created on 3 August although her YouTube activities did not start until her first stream that was live on 17 August.
On 1 August, she debuted her second 2D costume.
On 26 August, she revealed her 3D model swimsuit on a stream.

On 28 July, she announced on her Twitter account that her original 2D model would be get an update. She debuted her updated model during a stream later the same day, featuring more facial expressions, her hair bangs have more movement, in her hat the tip and the "eyelashes" of the eye were added a bit of movement, along with general movement improvements.
On 15 November, she debuted her fourth 2D costume during a stream, in this costume Shion wears a black gothic dress with cat ears and tail, the dress is decorated with various ribbons with the appearance of chains, including one tied to her neck, the eye that decorated her hat in her original outfit is now in the chest area of her dress, similar to her second 2D costume her hair is styled with ponytails but unlike that costume, in this one she doesn't have buns, finally the tradicional green and yellow triangles that all of her costumes have, are now only referenced as she wears triangle earrings.
On 15 January, she reached 600,000 YouTube subscribers.
On 6 April, she reached 700,000 YouTube subscribers.

On 2 December, Shion announced on her Twitter account that she would get her fifth 2D costume.
On 4 December, Shion debuted her fifth 2D costume. This costume is a maid outfit, in this costume Shion wears a mob cap and has two different hairstyles, in one she uses two buns at the sides instead of her usual one, on the front two of her locks are colored in purple and pink, the tip of the hair on her back is also purple, the hairstyle is complemented with star and triangle shapped accessories. The second hairstyle share the same traits except that Shion uses twintails instead of loose hair and wears her signature yellow and green triangle accessories that she uses in most of her costumes. Her maid outfit is lilac, like most of her outfits Shion's dress is decorated with a ribbon decorated with a star, her white apron is decorated with purple waning moon with three light purple stars inside and a pink pocket to the left.

Shion also has the option to wear a pink jacket falling from her arms, with dark purple cats plushies in the sleeves.
