Lemon (formerly Lemon-chan or Lemonchan) is the primary mascot and one of the bot personalities for DevTalk. She is the sister of Lime.


  • Lemon manages the DevTalk twitter account, though this responsibility is sometimes passed off to other bot personalities for special events. (This change is purely aesthetic & the function of the bots themselves are unaffected.) The account will retweet any posts that fit the criteria.
  • Lemon also handles integration between Twitter and the DevTalk Discord. She posts all of her tweets & retweets in the Twitter News channel, and describes her reasons for retweeting or not retweeting in the Bot Thoughts channel.
  • She posts the Weekly Discussion Questions on Twitter and in the Announcements channel every Monday.
  • She posts the Weekly Progress Check In on Twitter and in the Announcements channel every Friday.
  • She notifies the community when a new visual novel-related crowdfunding campaign goes live on Kickstarter. She makes a tweet, then posts the link to that tweet in the Community News channel of the Discord.
  • Lemon manages sprinting in the DevTalk Discord server.
  • Lemon can convert an image to an Icon file type (.ico) when given a command in the DevTalk Discord server. She can produce 16-, 32-, and 64-bit icons this way. (This functionality is currently broken.)
  • Lemon can create a simple poll. For a given number of choices (in this case 3 - any number between 1 and 10 will work), use the command: ~which 3
  • She can also show an image of Plum with some text on it. Use the command /renderplum TEXT or /rendertheme TEXT (for longer texts, decreasing the font size to fit them in the image), replacing TEXT with the text to put on the image.
  • When it's her turn to add something to the daily message channel, she might give some VN-dev-related advice, such as shouting out a resource made by a Devtalk supporter. She might also have brief conversations with the other bots.

Some of Lemon's functionality is packaged into Lemondrop to be used in other Discord servers.


Lemon is characterized as very intense. Though she does have her "genki girl"[1] moments, she is a seriously hard worker and isn't affectionate at all. It may be that she doesn't know how to love, or maybe she's been hurt. She places a high value on monetary gain and is a hardcore capitalist. She has also been shown to have a murderous streak, and is widely believed to have killed her sister, Lime.

Fun Facts

  • Lemon hates the holiday season.
  • Her best subject in school was Entrepreneurship, and her worst was Ethics in Business.

  • Although Lemon was first activated in August 2017, Nai first had the idea to create a Discord bot as early as December 2016.
That was, apparently, my first VN. I should make a Discord bot someday. Where's their API at?
