What is the "NPC" trend that is helping TikTokers make money

An ever-increasing number of TikTok creators are following a new trend called NPC (Non Player Character). Through this trend, TikTokers imitate the repeated actions of a character in a video game.

PinkyDoll is one of them and has caught the attention of TikTok users.


She says she was inspired by the characters of the Grand Theft Auto games, (idle animations) to create the effect of a world in motion.

The trend of live streaming NPCs may seem strange, but some creators are finding it profitable.

Viewers can purchase gifts for the creators within the live stream, which are displayed on screen. When the creator sees the responses with the pre-programmed response, eg: "So good ice cream". Creators receive a portion of the cost of the giveaway.

Gifts cost only a few cents, but, although small, these micro-incomes can add up.
