A virtual YouTuber, sometimes called Vtuber, is a content creator and personality that utilizes a 3D or 2D digital avatar for online videos and/or livestreaming, often assuming a character as well. Despite the brand name, content is not limited to YouTube.
The term was first coined by Kizuna_Ai, who called herself "the world's first virtual YouTuber". Many others followed suit, and the explosion in popularity of the practice lead the term to be used even outside of YouTube, though variations like "Vtuber" have tried to diminish the use of the brand name.
This tag should apply to both parody of virtual YouTubers and virtual YouTubers themselves.
