Shouldn't it be noted that Kanaya's lipstick/chainsaw is about the same as the 188.8.131.52 20:41, August 29, 2010 (UTC)in Problem Sleuth?
Snowman's skull base Edit
Should we include the fact that 184.108.40.206 22:43, October 6, 2010 (UTC)where she controlled Vriska is at the location of Kanayas old home? --

- Which term? Rainbow Drinker? It's from way back when she was Nimryel 05:17, February 21, 2011 (UTC) , also .
B/W Dress Edit
Where was Kanaya seen wearing this outfit?
- Never, it was however among her dresses in the secret room of alterniabound. BitterLime 16:14, August 1, 2011 (UTC)
So the illustration is merely fan-made?
- Not quite, it's from someone on the art team, but it was unused. Then Andrew had put it in the secret room of alternia bound as a tribute. At least that's how I understand it. Also, please sign your posts. to make it easier to see where one person stops talking and the other one startsBitterLime 16:57, August 17, 2011 (UTC)
Correct me if I'm wrongEdit
But are Kanaya's horns completely orange/red (whatever you want to call that color), as opposed to being red then orange then yellow, when she's in her rainbow drinker state? I can't find any pictures to prove otherwise, apart her rainbowdrinker sprite (which was probably fanmade). I would change it but I'd probably be shot for supposedly inaccurate references.--+Axis 17:15, December 21, 2011 (UTC)
- Wait nope never mind that I said nothing. --+Axis 18:17, December 21, 2011 (UTC)
ERIDAN/VRISKA AUSPISTICE? Edit
Why is she listed as the separated auspistice of Eridan and Vriska when that quadrant was never entered by either? The furthest that got was a proposition by Eridan before Kanaya shot it down, so it doesn't really count. 126.96.36.199 00:23, January 6, 2012 (UTC)

Don't you think that the should add Kanaya With Bloody Lipstick And Equius's Glasses To The Drinker Category? Roxy Lalonde 19:18, March 8, 2012 (UTC)Roxy Lalonde
I'm fairly surtain Hussie hasn't shown Kanaya with Equius' glasses in a symbolic manner before. But if he has I'd like to see the page it was from. 188.8.131.52 20:18, March 8, 2012 (UTC)
http://www.mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=005442 That Is The Page.
By symbolic manner, he means so that it matches something like this Boot to da head yo 14:56, March 17, 2012 (UTC) >
I should also add something, it has to be in the symbolic manner. That's just the way it is. Boot to da head yo 15:00, March 17, 2012 (UTC)
A "symbolic manner" (i.e. sprite) edit could be made very easiely from bitterLime 16:49, March 17, 2012 (UTC)and the existig rainbowdrinker sprite (hardest part would be covering her in purple blood stains that look good enough). If someone feels it's important enough to add they can make the edit and add it to the page.
Well in the picture there already is blood, so that's a start. Boot to da head yo 16:52, March 17, 2012 (UTC)
Here we go! I think I got everything. Let me know if I missed something Boot to da head yo 17:05, March 17, 2012 (UTC)
Oops. I just realised that this is alos when she is wearing eridans cape as a sash to cover her wound. Maybe it's not going to be so easy after all. I'm going to try something.bitterLime 17:22, March 17, 2012 (UTC)
Facepalms self. Boot to da head yo 17:46, March 17, 2012 (UTC)bitterLime 18:46, March 17, 2012 (UTC)
Pretty sure we got everything except for one thing. In all the other drinker pictures, her feet were grey. Boot to da head yo 19:10, March 17, 2012 (UTC)
- Huh? You are right, they are grey. That is weird, hero mode pictures of her clearly show that all of her skin glows, so it really should be white. But I checked and her sprites in the comic have grey feet. I updated the file, she has grey feet now.bitterLime 21:34, March 17, 2012 (UTC)

Post-Scratch Sprite Edit
Hey, I have a bit of a problem
Here's a picture I composed from the recent intermission [A6I2]
It's Kanaya as an unwounded, regularly-dressed Rainbow Drinker
I wanted to add it, but I don't have Photoshop or any other image editing software in which you can create a transparent color
So there's this ugly white background that'll appear if I attempt to add it as a picture in her infobox
If anyone wants to create a transparent background, be my guest; I've already made it the correct dimensions regarding the size of the sprite, distance from the edges, et cetera
Jazztasm 20:24, March 21, 2012 (UTC)
There you go, it should be transparent now.bitterLime 20:45, March 21, 2012 (UTC)
- kanaya's feet. 184.108.40.206 21:08, March 21, 2012 (UTC)
- There seems to be a patch you missed in the top left corner. Jazztasm I think tried to correct it but only managed to change the background colour (while still keeping it transparent?). The Light6 22:53, March 21, 2012 (UTC)
- We know about Kanaya's feet. That's Hussie's mistake. We have to keep it canon. I am the wizard its me 23:02, March 21, 2012 (UTC)
Okay, what the glub. I just updated it with a fixed version, fully transparent this time (my bad, I missed those few pixels earlier). But wikia is still showing me the version with the small white parts. It has done something similar to me once before and it fixed itself. I am not even sure if it's only me that still sees the old version. In any case, the file should be fine now, if it still shows you the old version that's some temporary dumb glitch.bitterLime 23:14, March 21, 2012 (UTC)
Damn glitch, I see the same. I am the wizard its me 23:16, March 21, 2012 (UTC)
- I am seeing the new version, but this isn't the first time where people continue to see old versions, even when they try to force it to show new versions. The Light6 23:56, March 21, 2012 (UTC)
- Hey everyone
- Thanks for fixing it, it seems to be functioning properly now
- I wonder why Kanaya's eyes have seemed to gravitate to the right lately
- I suppose Hussie drew the sprite again
- A thank you to: Bitterlime, I Am the Wizard Its Me, and The Light6

Similarities to Porrim Edit
Should we note the similarity to Porrim insofar as romance is concerned? That while Porrim's red and black quadrants are evidently rather... easy to get into, through the "well greased revolving door", Kanaya is"vvillage twwo wwheel devvice" for the ashen quadrant.
Kanaya is a japanese wordEdit
it means gold valley and is the name of a station. Its spelled "金谷" in kanji. The individual pronounciation of the kanji is "Chin Kanì" and together its Kanà-Kanì. Its also a surname. But I think that could be part of the weird plot shit. Its also the name of an asteroid and of a town. K(n)anaya (voice) is also a church. Kana, is a common girls name and when its used so as a name I think it takes the meaning gold. The word "kana" can be used to mean gold, or it also refers to the Japanese syllabic writing systems of Katakana, and Hiragana. I checked my dictionary real quick and found no listing for Kanaya. However, the particle "ya" when added to a noun can mean "shop" or "store." For example, the word for bread is "pan," thus the word "panya" is bread shop. So in one since you could translate "Kanaya" to gold shop, but I honestly don't believe they would understand it as that... The kanji/reading for child is "ko." Thus there are many girls names that end in this, one of which is, "Hanako," or "Flower Child." I have never heard of the name "Kanako," but I'm sure that is someones name somewhere in Japan. So you might like to take that as your translation for Kanaya =). Gold child or Golden child. I hope this helps.
Ok so I just asked a Japanese sensei about all this stuff. He said that they use the name, "Kanako," but it didn't really have a meaning. I also asked him about Kanaya. He said that it was the name of a valley pretty close to where I live. So you could translate it to "Golden Valley." But he also said it wasn't used as a name. He broke down the name into two or three different Kanji characters, that had different meanings, but the kanji for "ya" which was used in names was A: not used with the kanji for "kana", gold, and B: had a different meaning than "valley." Trust me this confused me a great deal as well. But I hope it gives you some insight into Maryam's name. - —Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk)
- Really I don't see it helping that much, I don't see how Golden Child really has anything to do with Kanaya, especially when we have the Sanskrit origin that fits much more closely being that it matches her sign and that a number of the trolls have names of Sanskrit origin including Vriska, Mituna, Latula, Meenah, and while Gamzee isn't his surname, Makara, is. My point is the name "Kanaya" also being a word or name in Japanese is more likely a coincidence than anything, especially when more solid origins are available. The Light6 (talk) 01:28, September 13, 2012 (UTC)
So, on Kanaya x Rose... Edit
- Well it isn't a secret that Kanaya had flushed feelings for Rose (and these feelings were still reaffirmed as of the first part of Openbound) and that Rose was very likely aware of Kanaya's feelings. That means Rose admitting her feelings to Kanaya means they both have mutual feelings for each other that the other is aware of. Also the fact that Kanaya when she found drunk Rose was told it was a romantic date and went on it with Rose anyhow.
- In short their red relationship has just confirmed to have started, for all we know their relationship very well could fall apart the very next day for them, but that isn't the status of their relationship when we last saw it. - The Light6 (talk) 02:02, November 12, 2012 (UTC)
Who does she prefers? Edit
Who do you think Kanaya prefers between Eridan and Karkat? Since they are both her best friends...
- Eridan isn't Kanaya's best friend. She's his, primarily because almost everyone else hates him. She made him a wand as part of playing along with Rose mocking him, and also just to shut him up. And then of course he hopesploded the Matriorb and killed her so she didn't exactly grow any fonder after that. As for Karkat, he also is the one to state that she is his friend, not the other way around, but there is a more mutual impression. She certainly doesn't dislike him -- Sorceror Nobody, 16:56, November 28, 2012 (UTC)
Waaaait. Shouldn't it say that Kanaya and Rose are Matesprits? :u~

Miriam Makemba connection? Edit
Is it just me that noticed that Kanaya's last name, "Maryam" and the name of the singer/civil rights activist Miriam Makemba are very similar not only in pronunciation but in meaning? Miriam Makemba was known as MAMA Africa.
I don't know, but this could be added to possible theories behind our rainbow-drinker's name.

Until you come up with some striking resemblances in the person, this is just coincidence. 126.96.36.199 16:54, December 4, 2014 (UTC)
