A MMORPG bot is a software application for automating certain actions (such as gaining experience and virtual supplies or adding custom features and interactions to the game) in a massively multiplayer online role-playing game. Bot can control existing game client's inputs, outputs and/or network streams or act as a client by itself.

Due to versatility of general purpose bots, their usage sometimes called "cheating" and discouraged. There are many MMORPG bots that have enabled people to sell the earned in-game currency for real life profits.

Some games openly permit bots, like Magic World Online, Angels Online and Shattered Dimension Online. GodsWar Online has a programmed bot in its client known as AFK mode.
