Ookami Mio (大神ミオ) is a female Japanese Virtual YouTuber associated with hololive, as part of a group of VTubers inside called as hololive Gamers (ホロライブゲーマーズ) alongside Shirakami Fubuki, Nekomata Okayu, and Inugami Korone.
Mio is frequently described by fans and other hololivers as being mature, responsible and level-headed when compared to her peers. In the holo no graffiti animated shorts Mio is frequently seen playing the part of the "straight-man", reacting comparatively like a real person would to her coworkers' absurd shenanigans or the onset of surreal situations. Mio is also regarded as being exceptionally kind, even among the already enormously friendly hololive staff, with both fans and peers frequently seeking her personal advice. This friendly and wise persona has earned her the popular nickname "Mio-mama".
Despite these mature traits, however, Mio is frequently touted as one of the biggest scaredy-cats in hololive. Among hololive's roster Mio is one of the most susceptible to horror movies or the scares in horror-themed games. This aspect of her personality is also supported by the holo no graffiti animated shorts, with Mio being revealed to be extremely easily frightened by ghost-stories, being completely unwilling to remain alone in the dark and becoming almost catatonic when scared.
She has stated that she sometimes has to suppress her more wild, wolf-like instincts and compulsions. These compulsions have included things like outright eating her coworkers Tsunomaki Watame (a sheep girl) and Nekomata Okayu (a cat girl).
She is also recognized as a talented singer as Shirogane Noel's singing coach (who Noel describes as particularly harsh and difficult to impress), upon hearing Mio singing during the Toyosu PIT live-event, remarked that she was exceptionally gifted.
Her Twitter account was opened on 16 November 2018 while her YouTube channel was created on 1 December 2018. On 6 December, a video introducing hololive GAMERS was uploaded and then she did an introductory stream with Fubuki on the next day.
On 5 August, her activities were suspended due to multiple claims of copyright violation filed against her YouTube channel.
On 4 September, Cover Corp's Twitter account made a short statement announcing that Mio's copyright strike problem has been lifted and that she would return to her activities shortly. After this, Mio published that she would return to do streams on 5 September.

- Mio is a self-professed practitioner and advocate of the "No Panties Healthy Lifestyle". This practice consists of not wearing underwear while sleeping, which supposedly grants health benefits such as improved blood-flow throughout the lower body. Mio states this wisdom was passed down to her from her grandmother.

- Following the debut of hololive's fourth generation, she stated that one of her New Year's Resolutions for 2020 would be that she promised to control her natural impulses and "not eat" Watame. Watame was in the chat at the time, with Mio suggesting that she shower prior to the two meeting in order to suppress the smell of "wild sheep" and thusly reduce her temptation. Watame responded by posting emoticons to illustrate herself running away.
