Thanks to a steady stream of new cards and banners, this period's top creators have plenty to talk about.
Each month, Lootcakes ranks the top Dragon Ball Z: Dokkan Battle YouTubers (and streamers) by popularity and highlights their notable recent content for your viewing pleasure. This edition covers the period ending 5/21.
NOTE: Because our "Top Dragon Ball Z: Dokkan Battle YouTubers & Streamers" series has been on hiatus for a few months, we've decided to double the number of featured creators in this edition!
#10: The Gaming Claw
Last Month's Ranking: #8
The Gaming Claw last appeared in our January edition. Like most Dokkan Battle YouTubers, he's also playing the new Dragon Ball Legends mobile game. The Gaming Claw is nearing the 75k YouTube subscriber milestone. Check out the video below to watch him discuss the Shadow Dragons category (our favorite here at Lootcakes) and what needs to be done to enhance it.
Last Month's Ranking: #6
Dmonty was one of the Dokkan Battle creators who attended the inaugural KamehaCon, a convention dedicated to all things Dragon Ball.

#7 (Tie): Jin-roh
Last Month's Ranking: #11
Jin-roh is the first of three newcomers to our rankings. He and fellow newcomer PS360HD2 tied for the #7 rank. Jin-roh generated more new video views, while PS360HD2 generated more new subscribers. We'd like to congratulate Jin-roh on recently reaching 20k YouTube subscribers! Watch his thank-you video here, or check out the video below to see him test out the new F2P LR Trunks on the JPN version of the game.
#7 (Tie): PS360HD2
Last Month's Ranking: New to list
PS360HD2 features a wide range of games on his channel, most of which are based on anime or manga properties. Unlike our other ranked creators, he doesn't usually add voice commentary to his videos. Fun fact: The oldest video on PS360HD2's channel was uploaded all the way back in February 2010. Check out the video below to see him showcase some super attacks on new cards being released in the JPN version.
Last Month's Ranking: #9
SuperMechaFrieza was another ranked creator who attended KamehaCon. Check out her convention recap video here. Although her channel is over seven years old, she only began uploading Dokkan Battle videos on February 12th, 2018. Watch below to see one of her recent Dokkan Battle livestreams.
#5: Animated Muscle
This period marks Animated Muscle's fourth ranked appearance. A month and a half ago, he listed his favorite mobile games. Dokkan Battle came in third. Watch the video below to see him discuss the two exclusive SSJ3 Vegeta cards arriving on the GLB version. In case you missed it, GLB players were compensated 25 stones when cards were accidentally distributed to some players.
Last Month's Ranking: #5
Fun fact: Rhymestyle and Nanogenix are the only two creators who have appeared in every single edition of our "Dokkan Battle YouTubers & Streamers" list. As of writing, Rhymestyle's average placement in our rankings is 2.7. Check out the video below to watch Rhymestyle and Nanogenix attempt to summon LR Bardock. Will either of them get lucky?
Judging by this recent tweet, D-Free had some great luck on the Bardock banner. In addition to Dokkan Battle, D-Free can frequently be found playing Dragon Ball Legends, the Dragon Ball Super card game, and a handful of other mobile games. Watch the video below to see him show off the coveted 1,000 Days LR Spirit Bomb Goku.
Since we last checked in with Nanogenix, he has managed to break the 250k YouTuber subscriber mark. Congrats, Nano! As of writing, he's only 15 videos away from reaching 1,000 total uploads on his channel. In the video below, Nano reviews the new Future Category, which has PHY Future Gohan as the category leader.
This period marks DaTruthDT's first appearance at #1! He managed to claim the throne thanks to strong YouTube video view and streaming numbers. Check out the video below to see DaTruthDT showcase Super Saiyan 3 Bardock, who leads what many consider to be the hardest hitting team in Dokkan Battle.

For a more detailed breakdown on the top content creators in this edition, take a look at the table below. Click the table to enlarge.
Please note, N/A means the creator did not broadcast a video for this game on the applicable platform during the relevant period. Since any views they did achieve were for other games, we chose not to count them here. A dash (-) means the creator does not have an account on any relevant platforms in the associated category.
Each edition, we begin by compiling a list of the top 20 Dragon Ball Z: Dokkan Battle YouTubers (in the English language) since last edition based on the views generated by their top Dragon Ball Z: Dokkan Battle video upload during the relevant period. The YouTube list is sourced from YouTube search. Creators on the list are awarded 0-100 points in each of 4 categories: views of new Dragon Ball Z: Dokkan Battle YouTube videos; new YouTube subscribers; new Twitch followers; and new Twitch and YouTube stream views. The data from the 4 categories is sourced from YouTube and Social Blade (socialblade.com). Points are calculated according to the following steps:
(1) For each category, total points available are calculated by multiplying 100 by a fraction: the total number of creators active on the relevant platform (numerator) divided by the total number of creators on the list (denominator). 'Active' in the New YouTube Subscribers category is defined as having uploaded at least 1 video of the tracked game during the current period AND having generated 100 or more subscribers. 'Active' in the New Twitch Followers category is defined as having streamed the tracked game on Twitch during the current period AND having generated 100 or more Twitch followers. 'Active' in the New YouTube and Stream Views categories is defined as having uploaded/streamed the tracked game during the current period. For example, if 90% of creators uploaded a YouTube video of the tracked game during the current period, then 90 points are available in the New YouTube Video Views category.
(2) Points awarded to a creator in each category are then calculated by multiplying the results of step (1) by a fraction: the creator's individual performance in that category (numerator) divided by the total performance of all creators on the list in that category (denominator).
(3) Points calculated from each of the 4 categories in step (2) are then totaled up to determine the creator's final score.
