Last Month's Ranking: #9
We recently spotted D-Free, a Dragon Ball Legends specialist, dabbling in Dokkan Battle and the new Samurai Jack game on his YouTube channel. That said, DBL remains his primary focus. In D-Free's most popular recent upload, he shows off a team headlined by Zenkai 7 boosted SSJ4 Goku and Vegeta. Watch him in action below!

#8: Yaro G
Last Month's Ranking: #10
This period marks Yaro G's second-ever appearance in our top 10. Although he's historically been a Dragon Ball Legends content creator, we noticed he began playing Dokkan Battle in early August
. His first Dokkan video also happens to be his most popular upload in August. Watch it below!
Last Month's Ranking: #7 (Tie)
Raiyuden recently announced
he'll be stepping back from his early morning uploads about Dragon Ball Legends content drops to accommodate his job as a software engineer. That said, during August Raiyuden is still averaging an impressive one upload per day. Watch him try out the newly buffed LF Piccolo below.
Since we last checked in on RikuTheBest, he became verified
on Twitch and reached the 150k subscriber milestone on YouTube. Congrats! Drop by Riku's Twitch channel here
or watch his most popular recent upload below, in which he uses what he considers the most underrated Legends Limited Unit in Dragon Ball Legends.
#5: DBZ World
Last Month's Ranking: #11
DBZ World returns to our top 10 after a two-period absence, during which he placed 12th and 11th. Fittingly, his return coincided with him reaching the 100k YouTube subscriber milestone. Compared to the previous period, DBZ World more than doubled his haul of new YouTube subscribers and viewers. Watch him below take on the newest Dokkan Battle Infinite Dragon Ball History stage, Babidi's Army.
#4: Tiger Uppercut Media
Last Month's Ranking: #1
We'd like to congratulate Tiger Uppercut Media on receiving "verified" status
on YouTube! You can now see the trusty gray check mark next to his channel name. This period, Tiger has streamed Dokkan Battle and Fall Guys on Twitch. Drop by his Twitch channel here

Last Month's Ranking: #4
Goresh, translator extraordinaire between the Japanese and English versions of Dokkan Battle and Dragon Ball Legends, recently mentioned
that Dokkan's link update was his favorite update in the history of the game. Watch Goresh review everything contained in the aforementioned update in the video below.
Last Month's Ranking: #2 (Tie)
DaTruthDT claims the #2 spot for the second consecutive period. Prior to that, he held the #1 rank for an unprecedented thirteen straight periods. Watch this Dokkan Battle specialist's link leveling guide below. Unsurprisingly, he's already fully leveled many units in his Japanese account.
Nanogenix claims the throne for the first time in over a year! His massive growth in YouTube subscribers and Twitch followers catapulted him to the top. Among our top ten creators, he finished #1 in both categories. Watch Nano's fun take on summoning videos below. He scrolls through the Dokkan and Dragon Ball Legends subreddits for meme posts and forces himself to summon every time he laughs.
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 in the tracked games 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 and Dragon Ball Legends YouTubers (in the English language) based on their most-viewed new upload (during the current period) related to any of these games. To qualify, at least 75% of their videos in related games (during the current period) must contain self-created gameplay or game-related commentary (i.e. created directly by the YouTuber as opposed to clips sourced from third parties).
Creators from the above list are then awarded 0-100 points in each of four categories: (1) total views of their newly uploaded YouTube videos related to these games, (2) new YouTube subscribers, (3) new Twitch channel views plus new YouTube stream views related to these games, and (4) new Twitch followers. The data from these 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 refers to creators who uploaded at least one related game video AND generated 100 or more subscribers during the current period. 'Active' in the New YouTube Views category refers to creators who uploaded at least one related game video during the current period. 'Active' in the New Twitch Followers category is defined as having streamed at least one related game on Twitch during the current period AND generated 100 or more Twitch followers. 'Active' in the New Stream Views category is defined as having streamed at least one related game on Twitch or YouTube during the current period. For example, if 18 of 20 creators are considered 'Active' in the New YouTube Subscribers category, then 90 points are available in that category (i.e. 18/20 = .9 x 100 = 90).
(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). Continuing the example from (1), a creator with 100,000 New YouTube Subscribers out of 1,000,000 from all ranked creators on the list would receive 9 points in that category (i.e. 100,000/1,000,000 = .1 x 90 = 9).
(3) Points calculated from each category are then totaled to determine the creator's final score.
