"Greetings, humans! Nakiri Ayame has arrived!"
"A kimono-clad Oni girl from the Demonic-Realm Academy. As she loves to prank people, she always uses will-o’-the-wisp on them just to have fun. Many may not realize it, but she is actually the president of the student council."
Nakiri Ayame (Japanese: 百鬼あやめ) born December 13, is an oni and a member of Hololive 2nd Generation. Although her Twitter account and her Youtube Channel were both created on August 1, 2018, and August 11, 2018, respectively, she debuted on September 3, 2018. Her 3D model debut was on May 17, 2019  and soon after, on August 9, 2019, she debuted her 3D Swimsuit model.  Her second outfit was announced on Twitter and was revealed on Youtube in a livestream on November 23, 2019.
She streams a variety of games on her channel, like Minecraft — where she is possibly the best builder in Hololive — or FPS games such as PUBG or Apex Legends. (where she ended Season 4 at Diamond 4)  Other games include Animal Crossing: New Horizons, Monster Hunter World (and its expansion, Iceborne), Mario Kart, ARK (though only for a few streams), Rhythm Heaven, Splatoon and League of Legends.
She's known for her soothing voice and infectious giggles and laughs during her stream. She's also notoriously bad at waking up, as she's always the last to wake up in multiple morning wake-up streams. She also sings a lot on her streams.   
Her great luck is unmatched in all of Hololive when it comes to videogames and odds. Examples of her 'great luck' include, but are not limited to:
- Her "The Stream Doesn't End Until I Fish Up an Enchanted Book!" Minecraft stream, where after she casts her first line, she gets an enchanted book. The odds of this happening is 0.7%.
- Another Minecraft stream, titled "I Ain't Gonna Stop Until I Get My Diamonds!", where 30 minutes after the stream started she finds a vein of 5 diamonds. Not wanting to end right there, she wanted to find a second vein, and 15 minutes after the first vein encounter, she finds a vein of 8 diamonds.
- More recently, during an Apex stream, she mentions of a skin she wanted from a weapon, and after opening just one lootbox, she gets the aforementioned skin.
Her representative emote is a smiling "oni" face, since she is an oni.
Ayame has a calm and easy-going demeanor. She can be clumsy at times and tends to forget things easily.
Despite being an Oni, a kind of yōkai from Japanese folklore, known for being evil and brutal, Ayame is one of the kindest and caring members in Hololive.
Most of the time during streams, she prefers to just talk about different topics and often gets sidetracked from one topic to another, before going back to the original topic 20 minutes later.
While playing games, especially FPS, she gets very competitive and can become silent as she tries to focus in-game.
She is not easily phased and always regains her composure, though series of frustrating matches in Fall Guys can make her lose her cool and lightly slam the table a few times.
Despite having an introverted personality, Ayame gets along well with her peers and seniors, but when it comes to interactions with juniors, she often gets shy. While being a brilliant comedian when it comes to FAMS skits and being able to read the atmosphere, she is notorious for spacing out during collabs, making an empty face, and getting called out for it.
Outside of Hololive, she is great friends with a member of Nijisanji, Inui Toko, utaite 96Neko (Kuroneko), and independent VTuber Utsutsu Yomi.
She is quite knowledgeable about various anime, manga, J-dramas, and seiyūs, for which she is often being called an otaku by her fans. Ayame always denies those claims, stating that real otakus know much more than her.

Viewers call her "Ojou" (お嬢). It roughly translates to "Young Lady". She calls her fans “人間様” which literally means "Humans", while she refers to herself as "Yo" (余), as her Japanese is archaic since she's very old.
When something cute happens on her stream, chat will often say "Kawayo" (かわ余). This is a portmanteau of "Kawaii" (かわいい) and "Yo" (余).
