Added DiffLines:

When most people do a LetsPlay, they usually do it as themselves. No acting, no work of fiction. They are just playing a game and providing commentary on it. However, there are some people who decide to pretend to be somebody else for their let's play.

Not the characters in the game they are playing, but characters completely unrelated to the game. While a regular Let's Play is made as an entertaining walkthrough to the game, these kinds of Let's Plays are almost purely made for entertainment.

As such, these people will often goof around and pretending not to know how to play. Sometimes though, they will take gameplay seriously while keeping in character of whoever they are pretending to be. These kinds of Let's Plays don't finish the games they are playing very often with each game being played as a one shot. Some games do get played to completion like a normal Let's Play, but the focus is mostly to entertain by showing what it would be like if certain fictional characters played video games.

That being said, some of these still have the gameplay and voices recorded simultaneously, so there is often a big chance of the actors unintentionally but noticeably [[{{Corpsing}} breaking]] [[OohMeAccentsSlipping character]].

* On ''Blog/DasSporking'' member Silais' sporks of ''VideoGame/ChronoCross'' and ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'' (the latter hosted on his own blog) are framed as if the games are being played by the casts of ''{{VideoGame/Neptunia}}'' and ''VideoGame/BreathOfFire'' respectively.
* ''WebAnimation/HomestarRunner'' has the episode [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SZ7-TKdt9BU "Videlectrix - Halloween Waggle"]], where the two employees of the fictional company Videlectrix stumble their way through the Atari game ''Haunted House''.
* ''WebVideo/KizunaAi'' is a virtual youtuber known for writing blogs and [[https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCbFwe3COkDrbNsbMyGNCsD doing Let's Plays]]. Little to nothing is known about the team that created her and the person who provides her voice.
* ''LetsPlay/MarikPlaysBloodlines'', a spin-off of ''WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries'', in which Creator/LittleKuriboh plays ''VideoGame/VampireTheMasqueradeBloodlines'' in-character as Marik from ''Manga/YuGiOh'', with occasional interjections from Bakura from the same.
* A [=YouTuber=] going by "The Nerd Gamer" is sporadically releasing episodes of a ''VideoGame/RepublicTheRevolution'' [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1lsTGK-JOeM&list=PLGYKWqwrusOEer8DAJ9jVWVCyDJ3gt2MF&index=1 LP]], where he both plays and talks in-character as a suitably ideologized pro-Communist party leader the entire time.

* ''WebVideo/TwoBestFriendsPlay'' was this in the early years. Their videos involved Matt and Pat playing exaggerated versions of themselves, with lots of scripted jokes and heavy editing.

* ''LetsPlay/TwoSaiyansPlay'': The franchise started with Takahata and Lanipator from Creator/TeamFourStar as Nappa and Vegeta playing video games. It later had spin-offs with Lani also voicing Krillin and Creator/MasakoX voicing Goku.
