    Well, what is a "No use"-NPC? It's a NPC that has no use! Simple as that!

    But why we need "No use"-NPC's? Because it is way more fun this way!

    Ever wanted to build a huge city in Terraria? Ou did you already build a huge city? And then you realized it feels like a DEAD city? Yes, that really sucks...

    So i was thinking about adding "No use"-NPC's would make those cities much more lively! For example:

    You build a small house on the surface, mainly out of wood and no special furnitures, then a normal citizen appear. But when you build a big house with all kind of expensive stuff (golden candleirs and more), a noble citizen will move in. If you build little houses under the surface, a miner may move in and if you build houses in the corrupted areas, cursed/sick people will live their. In the underground jungle elves would move in and at the hell... i dont know, maybe human demons (appearence like humans, tail and horns, like a devil or succubus/incubus).

    If the developers want, they can add a function for those NPC's. A woodcutter or miner may search for resources for you (and sell them of course). An alchemist would search for all kind of mushrooms and other ingredients, a woodcutter wood of course and a miner for all kind of ores. But thats just another idea. :D

    The "No use"-NPC's would of course speak with you if you talk to them. They would tell you very funny things, maybe even complete jokes or give you inside infos (like "It's said that in 2 day a blood moon will rise" or "Becareful, XY Monster/Boss is on the way to this island).

    NPC's may drop certain items upon death, not just the clothier.

    So what do you think about it? :D

    EDIT:

    I start adding all NPC ideas from every user. Don't hold back, even the most useless/worst NPC may be worth to be mentioned because every NPC makes our world more lively!

    Well yea. But i think some ideas should have their own thread because of the major importance they have. Those NPC's are (in my opinion) really important to raise the motivation to build more then just one building. :)

    I agree completely ;)

    I think that the miner should be able to mine small tunnels, and then put what he mined in a chest in his house? Just adding a little use, but you can't interact with them, if you see away from them telling jokes etc.

    I would like some villagers. I've build some more buildings than one ... and it's getting boring, if nobody use it exept myself. :(

    I like this idea. It would bring your home(town) to life. :) Does anybody know "Dragon Quest IV"? There you can build a town and get more "useless" NPC, but they bring your town to life. I would like something like this in Terraria. Maybe there could also be some with a little use (for example a Joker, a "Black-Market-Merchant" who sells unusual random things, a Ringmaster who gives some kind of mini-games, Dancers, a Beastmaster, a Talking Skull ("Murray" anyone?^^) and so on.

    Maybe you can make a list in here about possible NPC of this kind and add all new suggestions about them. Keep your thread updated for a better overview. :)

    Sounds really nice. Btw this would be a great NPC für my stranded mode (see in my signature). A farmer could do some harvest and you can buy food from him. Great idea! :D

    I put him on the list. ;)

    Just what I thought. I have already read your stranded suggestion, and I like that one too :D

    While you are at it...
    "Man who cannot be seen."

    Edit: No no, Must be as written, not "invisible man", "Man who can't be seen" is the actual form of writing, IIRC. BTW.
