Popular Twitch streamer LilyPichu was hilariously oblivious when she somehow managed to pull rare five-star character Venti in Genshin Impact, mistakenly thinking that every player receives the coveted character for free.

Genshin Impact has been the latest in a string of hugely popular games in 2020, following in the footsteps of Fall Guys and Among us to secure millions of global users, rising through the ranks on Twitch and YouTube as the game gains popularity.

The game is a huge open world RPG that sees players explore the stunning and vast world of Teyvat, fighting monsters and progressing through the exciting main story.

It is free to play, but relies on a gacha mechanic to draw in income, having players use an in-game currency known as ‘wishes’ to enter weapon and character draws, attempting to obtain their favorite of a diverse cast of characters.

Genshin Impact has surged in popularity since its September 28 release.

However, due to the rarity of some characters, people have ended up spending thousands of dollars on wishes trying to get the people they want the most, particularly 5 star characters such as Venti.

But, popular streamer LilyPichu, who has over 1.5 million followers on Twitch, incredibly beat those odds when she began playing Genshin Impact for the first time ever.

LilyPichu gets Venti on first try

On her first pull with the Beginner’s Wish banner she got given Noelle, who’s a maid at the Knight’s headquarters and a four star character, which was by no means a bad result for her first try at the wish mechanic.

A little later she decided to give Venti’s banner a try – Venti being a highly desirable five star character who’s notoriously difficult to get with just the ten free wishes that the game gives out at the start.

As she started to pull weapons, Lily said “what are these weapons? Where’s venti? I rolled for the Venti, where’s the Venti?”

In a crazy twist, Venti popped up on her screen just four wishes in. Lily was unbeknownst to the rarity of the situation, and calmly said “wait is that it? Wow do you get a free Venti if you roll? Wow, so everyone gets a free Venti, that’s cool.”

The chat immediately went crazy, saying “this is insane” and “how is this possible?” and joked that she had “streamer luck” to get Venti on her first try. One viewer even said they “wasted $100” to secure the highly desired character, proving just how lucky Lily was.

The hilarious moment had fans reeling in the chat long after she started playing as the character, the character gacha system never failing to cause a stir.

The joys of spooky season might be limited by a global health crisis, but it doesn’t stop TikTok from creating some incredible and utterly terrifying looks this Halloween.

From disturbingly realistic horror movie icons to genuinely bone-chilling transitions, we’re in awe of the efforts it took to create these amazing costumes. Here are the best looks from this year so far.

Don’t get bitten!

This extremely dedicated father had such a realistic “Walking Dead” style zombie costume that his kids were clearly terrified. The costume came with its own sound effects, and TikTok is invested. The reveal of this amazing costume has had 9 million views.

Jump-scare with a twist

Abby Roberts is well known on TikTok for impeccable makeup skills, and her Halloween looks have been off the charts – especially with her collaborations with Yungblud and Liam Payne. Not only is this zombie Nun look the stuff of nightmares, the transition is pretty slick, too.

Pets are getting involved, too, and these three cute pups are breaking out of doggy jail in the spirit of Halloween, complete with stripy uniforms that say “I steal kisses” and a number plate that says “cr1me.”
