Introduction video


Hello Everynyan!! ~ Meet Nyatasha Nyanners!

Nyanners's introduction.


Nyanners is a gentle, sensitive, and pure-hearted catgirl with a good sense of humor. However, her "seiso" (pure) attitude is offset by a tendency to use toilet jokes and reference adult topics. This contrast between pure and crude is considered by fans to be a defining aspect of Nyanners' appeal.

She is easily flustered by lewd things, loud noises and large donations. She is strongly moved by nostalgic video games such as Ocarina of Time and Final Fantasy X. Her love of FFX is legendary, and she describes the character Yuna as a major influence.

Nyanners has considerable knowledge of Japanese pop culture, and she is skilled at singing in Japanese and other languages, including Latin (Lilium), Russian (елочка заблести огнями) and constructed or fictional languages (Song of the Ancients). She has a case of chuunibyou, as exemplified by her obsession with Cold Steel heavy-duty sword canes and tendency to create elaborate lore.

Nyanners is also a skilled artist; although you wouldn't know it looking at her most popular creation Projekt Malady, a drawing of her fellow VShojo member she made with her eyes closed on stream. This has since prompted several more blind drawings of her peers.


Nyanners is a catgirl with fluffy pink hair and purple eyes. Her hair has an ahoge on top, and her cat ears have soft fur inside them. Her hair hides a second set of human ears. She has a singular fang on her left side, this is her only tooth.

She wears a pale blue hoodie, which hangs off her shoulders because, although it is comfy, it is also too warm. She wears a black and white top underneath which says にゃん〜, the Japanese spelling of "nyan~". Her hair and clothes are decorated with cat motifs. Recently she has changed her appearance seasonally.

An alternate costume, debuted on 1 October 2020, reveals a purple and black costume with bat motifs and a single side-ponytail. It depicts her for the first time with legs, having previously appeared with a spiderlike lower body.[1]

On 3 November 2020, Nyanners' default outfit gained a variant with a new hair clip depicting a cat ghost wearing an eyepatch. It replaces her original hair clip of a simple cat face. The cat ghost represents Nyanners' true form as an otherworldly eldritch spirit for whom Nyatasha Nyanners is just the latest in series of haunted vessels; while the eyepatch represents Yakuza character Goro Majima.[2] However, she continued to use the old version in streams.

On 24 November 2020, she revealed a new winter outfit. It features and elaborate pale blue winter coat, frilled and lined with white fur, and decorated with cat motifs and shiny gold buttons. She also has a warm Russian-style ushanka hat, decorated with a ribbon pin featuring her cat familiar Goro.



Nyanners' original character (2014)

The name Nyanners originated as a friendly diminutive form for nyannyanoxo, an ironic anime fan name chosen when she joined a 4chan /a/ raid on the Chatango room for the Naruto Fanon Wikia, after finding the exceptionally long entry for Seireitou Hyūga and his lengthy list of relationships. She ended up actually taking part the community and created the character Shuensha Kahou, who can manifest a large pink angry cat face when angry. The Naruto community gave Nyanners the confidence to produce her own content on YouTube.[3]

Nyanners first created her pink-haired catgirl character on 13 May 2012. For her birthday on 14 June of that year, Nyanners received two pieces of fanart depicting her as this character: one used in Ken Ashcorp's A Song for Nyanners' Birthday, and another by Pikkurni, later used in Tsukema Tsukeru cover to illustrate Nyan Nyanners, an Utauloid voice synthesis trained on Nyanners' singing voice.

Nyanners would go on to represent herself with depictions of this character in other videos, including numerous song covers from 2014 onward. She created a Twitch channel on 10 Feburary 2015. After she became a Twitch partner in October 2016, this character appeared in her Twitch emotes.


On 17 July, after several years of streaming on Twitch using various Facerig avatars due to shyness, Nyanners revealed her custom virtual avatar.[4] On 21 July she posted her character bio, revealing the official name Nyatasha Nyanners.[5] The name was selected by a series of polls on Nyanners' Discord. Rejected names included Nyanzu Nyanneru, Nyanasu Nyanners, and Nyatasha Kotova Neru III.

Nyanners announced reaching 100,000 Twitch followers on 29 July 2020,[6] and 200,000 followers on 10 Oct 2020.[7]

On 20 October, following reports of copyright takedowns on Twitch VODs, Nyanners established the Nyanners VODs YouTube channel to archive past streams. On 23 October, she announced that she would delete all VODs hosted at Twitch to avoid the risk of copyright strikes, but her community was able to save a substantial backup.[8] The following day, Nyanners announced a two-week hiatus for unrelated personal reasons. On 9 November she announced her return scheduled for Nov 11, declaring "prepare your wives".[9]

On 24 November, she made a redebut revealing her new winter outfit, drawn by Nia and rigged by Iron Vertex. Nyanners also announced her membership in VTuber group VShojo, whose members include Projekt Melody, Ironmouse, Silvervale, Zentreya, Froot, Hime Hajime, and Nyatasha Nyanners.[10] She reached 250,000 followers during this stream.


On 1 January, Nyanners posted a YouTube video where she was executed for failing to reach 1 million subscribers by the end of 2020. In her Twitch stream later that day, she was replaced by a new clone, identified by having brown eyes rather than purple and a lack of familiarity with wife-stealing. She gained 7,000 new subscribers that day and subsequently reached 1 million subscribers on 2 January.

On 8 January, Nyanners posted What really happened on that fateful day..., revealing that she survived by deflecting the bullet with her Cold Steel sword cane, only to trip over a rock, hit her head on another rock and die in the snow. On 16 January she held a 1 million subscriber celebration YouTube stream attended by over peak 12,000 viewers, in which the original Nyatasha Nyanners was revealed to have survived by drinking her own pee.

On 12 March, Nyanners updated to a new short hairstyle, including other minor model updates. Canonically, she sliced off her hair using her sword cane and let it drift into the wind. She intends to still use her long hairstyle sometimes.[11]

On 24 March, Nyanners was announced as a guest in Kizuna Ai's first virtual tour on 24 April.[12]

She reached 400,000 Twitch followers on 31 March.

Origin and certain nature

  • Nyanners' true form is that of a terrible eldritch spirit, who was summoned to earth more than a thousand years ago. To prevent her from conquering the world, she was sealed away in the Siberian Arctic for an age. Recently, she awoke from her slumber and was rejoined by her cat spirit familiar and began wandering the arctic together.[13]
  • She can transform into a seal, and often makes seal noises, taught to her by various tribes of seals she befriended in the arctic.[13] On September 30, 2020, she added the Twitch emote "nyannBLEGH", referencing her ability to blegh. She worked for a time as a lumberjack in Siberia.[14]
  • Nyanners' powers include the ability to shapechange and possess other forms. She adopted many vessels before taking her current form. The form of a non-threatening, wholesome pink catgirl was chosen as part of an elaborate plan to endear herself to humanity, following research into the power of strange pictographs known as "anime".[13]
  • She began streaming as part of a plan to conquer the world. Unfortunately, her thirst for knowledge ran too deep, and continuous exposure to video games and anime caused her to become docile and lazy. She fears that her long period of imprisonment in the ice may also have weakened her supernatural power and caused her to become senile.[13]
  • She does not have a tail. She often attempts to conjure one, but it always shrivels and falls off.[13]
  • Nyanners has both cat ears and human ears. One pair hears normally, but the other hears only sounds in the night from other worlds or realms of being.
  • Nyanners has several clones, some of whom are several hundreds years old. Seven appear in the video I Cloned Myself to Play Among Us....
  • She has a failed clone, named Nyanders (pictured here). Normally Nyanners eats her clones, but Nyanders tastes bad. She is connected to Nyanners telepathically, and smells of french fries. Nyanners feeds her milk from her bosom and spoons of glop, and sometimes lets her eat the spoon too.
  • To keep her hair pink and soft, she frequently washes it in a human concoction known as "pepto bismol".[13] She uses it to dye her hair when it turns grey.
  • She can see through wooden doors.
  • She is a self proclaimed coofer.
  • She has the ability to unhinge her jaw like a snake and swallow a turkey whole.
  • Her saliva is akin to that of a komodo dragon's in its ability to be weaponized. It is unclear whether this is the natural state of her saliva or whether she can will this into being.
  • She does not poop, but magics away waste products in her digestive tract like fairy dust. There is an island somewhere in the world formed entirely from Nyanners' poop. One day, a hundreds years from now, mankind will discover Nyanners' poop island, and it will be inhabited by all kinds of alien lifeforms who came to make it their home.
  • She has claimed that she lacks genitalia and has no reproductive desires. This is believed to be a fabrication, however, as her tastes in women are well known.
  • She may or may not develop a second set of feet when inebriated.
  • She possesses a button somewhere on her body that causes her hair to grow.
  • Nyanners describes her upbringing as being allowed out only for a brief time each morning to lick up the morning dew, which would sustain her. She would then be put back in her kennel until the time came to perform experiments on her to read her DNA in order to clone her.
  • Nyanners cannot fly, but she can lay eggs.
  • Nyanners smells of old lettuce, pepto bismol, and Vicks VapoRub.
  • She claims that her chest size is actually FF-cup, for Final Fantasy, but she hides it underneath a sports bra so that she can jump around on stream more easily.
