Being a Vocaloid, Gumi has no single canon personality, and as such, there are as many different perceptions of her as there are people who've interacted with Vocaloid. In fanfictions and fanart, she is often portrayed as enthusiastic and social, and frequently with an affinity for technology. In many popular songs from the Western part of the fandom, such as Wildfire & Machine Gun, however, she appears as dangerous-- lashing out against those who've wronged her and destroying everything in her path as she does so. In still other parts of the fandom, primarily in Japan, Gumi is portrayed as suave & elegant, such as in First Love Academy.
