Community Spotlight: Favorite MMO NPC

In this week's Community Spotlight, we focus on the thread, "Your favorite NPC in MMO?" by Emrendil.

My favorite NPC currently is Fionasinna the Vivid, a dye vendor in Rift. Love here outfit. Almost always when I log in to Rift I go visit here. Too bad she doesn't talk much :)

Anyway, is there any NPC out there that you particularly like?

Read below for some highlights from the thread!

ZombieKenn picks "Budd" from WoW: Cataclysm:

WoW Cata: Budd

Ahoy!
I'm saaaailing!
Out on a boat... way far away from the dock...
Into the wind with the sky and everything...
Oooh... shiny!

*Budd jumps overboard*

free2play picked Momodi from FF14:

Momodi FF14

She was sassy. She had help though because there was Lalafell at the first camp, you had to turn in crafting quests to and I always wanted to punt her out on to a cactus. It didn't matter what grade you got on your craft, 0 to 300, "I suppose it will have to do". She irked me.

Sevenstar61 enjoyed SWTOR's Lord Mechedas for his entertaining VO:

SWTOR has plenty of really cool NPCs. For some reason for me the most memorable was Lord Medechas from Belsavis. I am always excited when I go to see this guy in my countless alts LOL. His voiceover  is the best in SWTOR

My favorite NPC is City of Villains' Westin Phipps. While CoV was a fun game, you didn't really feel like a cold-hearted villain until you undertook the missions offered by Phipps later in the game. Poisoning food, destroying books meant for schoolchildren, and even kidnapping a teacher and turning her over to Arachnos knowing you've sealed her to a fate of torture and who knows what else. Phipps is a real bastard and anyone who played City of Villains to level cap will likely remember him for the deplorable tasks he sets you on.

What are your favorite MMO NPCs? Share 'em with us in the comments below!

The SWOTR bosses/mentors/superiors. Given the amount of time they get 'on screen' and the voice acting they are the most fully rounded NPC's I have seen in a MMO.

A couple of the NPC's in TSW like the cop on the roof and the Native American trio in a tourist information cabin were outstanding.

DeanGrey writes: I remember in Secondlife a neighbor held gatherings regularly and he had one of those automatic bartenders that half the community had at the time. The kind that give you a drink when you ask and maybe say something in attempt to be witty. Not this bartender though, he would hassle you and make you work for every drink. I think one person only ever got a drink out of him. Everyone else, including myself, went through hearing stories of his life, the difficulties of his job, jokes he heard from a guy he met once, and so on. It was a memorable experience in the good kind of way, being very unlike the first job I stumbled into in Secondlife. Mon May 20 2013 7:25AM Report

Okay, I need to kick someone's ass.  Not one person mentioned the most profound, emotionally tearing NPC I've ever come across:

 

Tybalt Leftpaw

 

He has charisma, charm, and humor about him that comes from no others. Best time was when he dresses as Caudicus's (sp?) daughter and talks about her rather large "apples"  What happens to him is sad, but in the end he's still someone  that sticks to mind for long times
