6. Kamek and Dimentio
These two somewhat obscure Super Mario characters are henchmen to Bowser.
They’re certainly devoted to their leader, but I got Kamek to dish a little on his boss.
7. Yandere Characters

9. Survival Game
This one is a choose-your-own-adventure game.
Select from various options as you make your way through a haunted house.
10. Strategy Game Bot
This strategy simulator asks you to select a country to play as.
You are then presented with scenarios and problems that need to be resolved.
I chose Italy and ran into some speed bumps when dealing with the Mafia.
11. Make Your Own Character
A vast majority of Redditors recommend making your own private characters.
This gives you total control over the bots’ descriptions and features, which impact the quality of the response you get.
I put together a simple Character AI generator to help you get started.
To wrap up, this list covers a wide range of Character AI bots, from educational to Anime to gaming.
These bots only represent a slice of what Redditors have frequently mentioned.
