Final Fantasy XIV is a worldwide popular MMORPG. It gets highly praised by critics and players for its high-level writing and NPC design. And the game service provider decided to have a popular NPC voting poll for players. Many beloved NPCs like Emet-Selch, Haurchefant, and Venat were on the candidate list.

Due to some unknown reason, some players started to canvass voters for the Adventurous Ambystoma, which appears to be an Easter Egg in the quest “In Search of Hermes”. Some of them even changed their Weibo portrait to the Ambystoma and wrote a voting campaign speech for it. And surprisingly, at 2 pm, the Adventurous Ambystoma had reached the Top 1 of the voting and kept in that position for the following hours till the moment we are writing.
