Tifa Lockhart is a fictional character from the RPG Final Fantasy VII. She has been compared to Lara Croft as an example of a strong, independent, and attractive female character in video games.

The video host is named “一个蟹蟹梨”  who is focusing on live commercial content. Her face has many details in common with the design of Tifa Lockhart in Final Fantasy VII Remake. Someone tried to use an AI face swap to make a comparison video and it is hard to tell the difference between the original one and the swapped one.
