Vtubing allows you to remain anonymous by using a virtual avatar to represent you.

However, some vtubers do choose to reveal their true identities to their audience, whether intentionally or accidentally.

Face reveals can be a moment of excitement for both vtubers and their fans, as it offers a glimpse into the real person behind the virtual avatar.

In this article, we’ll delve into the world of vtuber face reveals and take a look at some popular vtubers who have revealed their faces and the impact this decision had on their careers and relationships with their fans.

Why Do Vtubers Choose Not to Reveal Their Faces?

There are a variety of reasons why vtubers may choose not to reveal their faces. One reason is privacy concerns. As public figures, vtubers may be concerned about maintaining their privacy and boundaries.

Another reason why vtubers may choose to maintain their anonymity is the appeal of creating a separate online persona. Now retired Vtuber Kiryu Coco, for example, stated that she enjoys the freedom and creativity that comes with being a vtuber, and that revealing her face would change the way her audience perceives her.

The decision to reveal or not reveal one’s face can also have an impact on the vtuber-fan dynamic. Face reveals can be a significant and emotional moment for both vtubers and their fans, and can shape the relationship between the two.

The majority of vtubers who have revealed their faces claimed that doing so has improved their relationship with their fans and allowed them to connect with them on a deeper level.
