A player character is a character in a role-play or role-playing game that is or can be controlled by the player. Role-playing characters are always player characters, because they are or were originally meant for players to role-play with them.

Singleplayer games have only one player character, which is mostly the protagonist of the game. Multiplayer games and role-plays will have several player characters, one or several per participating role-player.
