An NPC, short for non-player character, is a Toon that is computer automated and always appear with an orange name tag. NPCs can be found in playgrounds, Toon Buildings, boss battles, and sometimes during special events. Most NPCs consist of fishermen, tailors from Clothing Shops, clerks from Goofy's Gag Shop, and clerks from Pet Shops.
In Toontown Online, Disney characters were seen as NPCs in playgrounds, such as Mickey Mouse from Toontown Central. Although some of them had been referenced in the storyline of Toontown Rewritten, they do not appear in the game for copyright reasons.
