Watson Amelia is an English Virtual YouTuber associated with hololive, as part of its English (EN) branch first generation of VTubers alongside Ninomae Ina'nis, Takanashi Kiara, Mori Calliope, and Gawr Gura.
Amelia is a rather expressive girl who is often seen mingling or teasing her fellow holomyth members (mostly Gura). She is usually kind, supportive, and sweet as shown when she often willingly helps the bonehead Gura in Minecraft and is furthermore expressed when she frequently watches her fellow members' streams whenever she is available (she even ended her own stream just to watch Kiara's stream once).
Despite her cute angelic appearance and personality, she also harbors another side of her personality that is often referred by her fans as "Gremlin Mode", she can be greedy, prideful, and unsportsmanlike in competitive online games such as Fall Guys, Apex Legends, and Valorant. Her greed is furthermore demonstrated in The Witcher 3 when she is always searching for loot, given the fact that when she heard a nearby villager say "loot", she tried to go around and find loot. For these reasons, fans often refer to her as a "True Gamer". Despite the circumstances, she tries her best to moderate her gremlin-like behavior.
Additionally, Amelia also enjoys clowning around such as in Gura's stream. During the pizza subject, she teased her by typing "Peanut Butter Pizza" in the stream's chat. And another time is her well-known proclamation of being a "Zoomer". She can also be sadistic sometimes, as she trolled her viewers in one of her Minecraft streams by adjusting her shader's brightness very darkly and acts innocently in claiming that she fixed the shaders for them, she fixed it again but the screen just became pitch black that they can't even see a single thing until she finally stopped and said that she was just kidding.
Moreover, she is often mischievous and lewd as she made a door in Minecraft written on top of it with "Gura's Backdoor" and a mischievous emoji. During her tour with Gawr Gura and Moona Hoshinova in hololive Japanese server, she was below Gura while climbing a ladder and commented "Nice view from here". Another is when the word "bottom" is said by both Calliope and Gura at different times, she responds by referring to them as the "bottom".
Possibly her best-known joke is "ground pounding your mom", which she said once during a Super Mario Odyssey playthrough and has since become almost synonymous with her character. Generally, Amelia's voice will shift towards a naughtier tone when she says something gremlin-like.
When she learned about the "lewd" fanarts of her by her fans and eventually likes it, she coined the tag "#Amelewds" that she proclaimed for them to use whenever they want to post "lewd" fanarts of her, ostensibly in order to separate SFW and NSFW art.
Overall, her multiple sides of her personality and having a balanced chemistry of it are what makes her very lovable as noted by her fans.
Amelia heard strange rumors surrounding Hololive online: talking foxes, magical squirrels, superhuman dogs, and more. Soon after beginning her investigation on Hololive, and just out of interest, she decided to become an idol herself! She loves to pass her time training her reflexes with FPS games, and challenging herself with puzzle games. It's elementary, right?
Ame was introduced simultaneously on both hololive's regular and English Twitter accounts and on hololive English's YouTube channel in a small video with the rest of the first generation on 8 September 2020. Her Twitter account was created in July, with her first tweet on her official introduction going out on 8 September. Her YouTube channel was created on 16 July, with her debut on 13 September (JST) during a stream.
On 25 October, Ame reached 500,000 subscribers on YouTube.
On 11 February, she reached 1,000,000 YouTube subscribers, making her the 9th hololive member to reach that milestone and the 3rd member of the English branch to do so after Gawr Gura and Mori Calliope.
Mascots & Fans
- Her mascot is Bubba who is based off her real life pet dog. Bubba occasionally barks during her livestreams
- Her fanbase is officially called "Teamates". It is a pun on "tea", a popular British drink and one listed in her debut stream among her favorite things. However, Amelia prefers iced tea, more common in the United States than Britain, and in the first collab stream she instead said that her favorite drink was water.
- Rejected names for her fanbase include Amelionnaires, Holmies (a reference to Sherlock Holmes), and Lads (a British term for male friends).
- Her YouTube channel Members have three tiers: Investigators, Investamigators, and Investamigatorators.
- In Japanese, her name is written 「ワトソン・アメリア」, "Watoson Ameria". This is direct transliteration of her name in katakana, normally used in Japanese to write foreign words and names. It is written in Japanese name order, with surname first; in English, it would normally be written "Amelia Watson".
- When speaking in English, Ame usually gives her name in the English order, as does Calliope Mori. The other three holomyth members (Gawr Gura, Ninomae Ina'nis, and Takanashi Kiara) put the surname first even when speaking English.
- She likes roller coasters, sleeping, clear noodles, the color green (because it's the color of trees, plants, and money), iced tea, and dogs.
- She has three pets: a hunting terrier named "Bubba", whose barks can occasionally be heard on her streams; another hunting terrier named and "Mikki/Nikki" (she says she calls her both); and a cat named "Wellington".
- Her favorite cake is "yellow-flavored" with chocolate frosting.
- Amelia likes video games from a variety of genres:
- Amelia's favorite anime include Mob Psycho 100, Inuyasha, Golden Kamuy, Deca-Dence, Girls' Last Tour, and Made in Abyss.
- On occasion, Amelia will display her love of marine biology by talking about her knowledge of aquatic life, including random obscure trivia and methods to care for them.
- She dislikes dirty monitor juice, loud/high-pitch noises, going outside, wearing clothes to sleep, onions, and peppers. Later Amelia also revealed that she doesn't like soda, as it hurts her throat.
- Her goals are reaching 100,000 subscribers (an achievement that she got during her debut stream), investigate more hololive members, improve her Japanese, debut a 3D model, and make a game based on hololive.
- On 16 September 2020, during her first Fall Guys stream, she revealed that she is a time traveler and the watch she carries is her tool to do so.
- She is the second hololive EN member and eighth hololive member overall to join the official Hololive Subreddit as a moderator.
- Prior to her debut, there was much speculation as to whether Amelia would have a British or American accent. In her debut stream, Amelia began using a British accent, but quickly revealed that it was a cover identity for use in investigations. She primarily uses an American accent.
- She shares a name with Dr. John H. Watson, the assistant of fictional British investigator Sherlock Holmes. Amelia is also seen with a doctor's stethoscope and syringes; in the original stories, Dr. Watson is a medical doctor who provides medical care for Holmes, among them the provision of various drugs.
- On 25 September 2020, in her membership promotional video, she revealed her name as "Amelia H. Watson", further reinforcing the reference. However apart from her mentioning this, the "H" in her name is not featured on her social media accounts or her official hololive profile page.
- She has a little brother, who mostly plays ROBLOX and Minecraft with a computer she built for him using old parts along with paint. She has also mentioned that he spent the money he got for Christmas on Fortnite.
- She frequently got hiccups during streams.
- She can play the ukelele.
- Her birthday, 6 January is supposedly the birthday of Sherlock Holmes. This speculative date was popularized by Sherlock enthusiast Christopher Morley.
- In her debut stream, Amelia gave her height as 150cm, or 5'9" "in freedom units", or 8.427 bananas. However, 150cm is actually equivalent to 4'11". According to the website Banana Length Convertor, which takes the length of a banana as 7 inches, 8.427 bananas is indeed equal to 1.5 meters.
Ame frequently tells stories about her childhood. She had at least 13 injuries:
- She received an injury in her childhood when she and her brother were jumping on a bed and Amelia fell off, hitting her head on the corner of a drawer. She needed to have her head stitched up. She claims to still have a "head hole" that she can feel air go through when she breathes.
- In another instance, while very young, Ame tripped on a wet floor while eating ice cream, and bit off her tongue almost completely. It was still hanging on by a thread, but the doctors were unable to stitch it back together because tongues do not work that way. It eventually healed, but she still has a scar.
- Ame's brother once threw a soccer ball at her face, knocking out three of her teeth. "Yeah, they were baby teeth. It was really bloody though. That's how siblings are."
- Ame once cut the top off her thumb when trying to peel an orange with a knife.
- A tire ran over her ankle, but it didn't break.
- Someone kicked the trainer wheels of her bike, and she fell and scraped her knee.
- She got bitten by dogs a lot. On one occasion she was bitten in the face, and when they tried to give her a rabies shot at the hospital, she tried to bite the nurse and ended up not receiving the shot.
- She once tried to pet a cactus. "I thought it would be soft, but then I had a bunch of pricklies in my hand."
- When she was around four, she was swinging between two chairs at Christmas and broke her arm. She didn't tell anyone and nobody noticed.
- Ame once fell at Disneyworld and smashed her face into the ground. Her brother swung on a rope, so she tried too and fell onto concrete, and her teeth went through her bottom lip and she had to get taken away by medics in a limousine.
- She once cut her eyelid on e piece of ice from a cup of beer.
- She was once left inside a car hot enough to melt crayons.
- Her arm was crushed by a big dude in a mosh pit.
- She got permanent ear damage from being near speakers in concerts.
Ame has also told childhood stories that don't involve her receiving injuries:
- As a kid, she liked to eat sand. "I liked the texture."
- She once literally drank her friend's tears.
- Her sibling would step on her tummy and make her burp.
- Her grandma had a hole in her ear because her earring got stuck in a vacuum.
- When her grandma was younger she liked to mess around with other women's husbands, with the result that someone cursed her family line. However, this also caused Ame to be exceptionally lucky. Ame describes luck as her highest stat.
- She once almost got kidnapped by private investigators looking for another girl who happened to have the same first name.
- Her mother was once kidnapped in Morocco and held hostage for $300.
- Another kid was being pushed on a shopping cart, and his pinky got stuck underneath the wheel and came off.
- She used to eat frozen waffles.
- She used to read Team Fortress 2 gay fanfiction of Sniper x Spy.
- Once, Ame was unfairly blamed for stealing money from a neighbor. The real culprit was her brother, who used the money to buy Ame a Nintendo DS.
- Once, her brother tried microwaving a plastic toy leg to see if he could make it bend. The house caught fire, and Ame nearly died because she was hiding in a closet.
- Once at school, she bought pizza at lunch for $1, but had to go to the bathroom and asked her friend to hold it. Her friend dropped it cheese side down, but Ame ate it anyway because it was a good deal.
- Once, she had a birthday party which she invited her whole class to and had her mother order a variety of food, presents, and decorations, but only her best friend showed up.
- Around age 7 or 8 she ran away from home, but accidentally swallowed a moth and went back home. It was creamy.
