Moetron, known as KimeKona (Japanese: キメこな) or KimeKona-chan (キメこなちゃん) on the Japanese web, is a community-made character comprised of various features taken from anime characters. She was designed as a character that focuses on moe attributes, as well as general cuteness and purity. However, due to the mismatched features, many considered the resulting character to be an abomination. She is described as having multiple personality disorder as a result of all the different characters used to create her, and can go from being tsundere to kuudere to yandere in quick succession. The stitching on her body in certain artwork is used to illustrate the various parts she is comprised of. Her birthday is May 7th.


On Futaba Channel

According to Pixiv Encyclopedia[1] and several wiki pages/blog posts,[2][3] Moetron was first created on img, one of the /b/-like boards in the Japanese anonymous imageboard community Futaba Channel (2chan), in late 2009 or early 2010. She was made for Konashine (こな死ね), a well known troll who had been vandalizing Lucky Star threads in the board and sent “Die! Konata…Die!” to every single post with Konata Izumi’s pictures. Circa 2009, to poke fun at him, img users started creating a vast amount of mashups of Konata and other characters to test how much “Konata essence” was needed to stimulate his emotion. This mashup series is called “konachan”, “konachan!” or “konachang!” (purposely written in alphabet) and some of illustrations in the series are archived on Pixiv by the creators.[4]

Early examples of konachan series

This series continued even after the troll was gone, and eventually a “moeblob”[5] of Konata and several other characters, using a template image of Konata (shown below, left), came to be known as one established character: KimeKona (shown below, right). The name is an abbreviation for Kimee Konata (きめぇこなた, lit. “Creepy Konata”) or Kimera Konata (キメラこなた, lit. “Chimera Konata”). Also, this series of expolitables of that Konata template image is called KonaCora (こなコラ, lit. “Konata Collage”) in img as well as Pixiv.[6]

On 4chan

The template of Konata had already become a popular exploitable on 4chan‘s boards outside of Moetron for various other characters. However, KimeKona was first posted on 4chan’s /a/ board on May 7th 2010, where she was swiftly dubbed as “Moetron” by the board’s users.

Various anonymous users would often create threads featuring just the original image. Initially they did not receive much attention, until users started posting artwork of her as well. Users on 4chan’s /a/ board tend to make posts celebrating her birthday, May 7th, each year.[7]

Various Examples

Since creation, large amounts of fan-art have been created for the character. Moetron has spread to various places; primarily image hosting or fan-art sites such as DeviantArt,[8] Pixiv,[9] and Tumblr.[10]
