Pain Peko, or Pain-Peko, refers to an image of Hololive Vtuber Usada Pekora with an exhausted expression on her face, as well as a fake tweet from the Vtuber reading "pain-peko." Pain peko has become a popular catchphrase and post title among Hololive fans since 2020, used as a Hololive-themed version of the Pain format.


On September 5th, 2020, Redditor u/Xditslitfam_1209 posted to /r/Hololive,[1] "it hurts ぺこ" along with a photoshop combining an image of Hololive Vtuber Usada Pekora's exhausted face with a photoshopped tweet from her official Twitter page reading, "pain-peko," making reference to the Pain meme format (shown below). The post gained over 5,600 upvotes in seven months.
