In Japanese, chibi can refer to a “small person (with dwarfism),” “small animal (runt),” or, with affection or annoyance, a “small child (pipsqueak)” according to the online dictionary Jisho.

Feature of Chibi VTuber

Compared with the general VTuber, the obvious feature of chibi vtuber is that its whole body height is about 2 to 3 head lengths. A higher head-to-body ratio can well describe the character's facial features and create a cute character style. This type of character is very popular in anime, such as doreamon, a classic anime character whose body is twice as long as the head.
