Each month, Lootcakes ranks the top YouTubers and streamers in two popular Dragon Ball mobile games (Dokkan Battle and Dragon Ball Legends) and highlights their notable recent content for your viewing pleasure. This edition covers the month ending 10/31.
The moment has arrived! Ndukauba reached the 300k YouTube subscriber milestone in late October. As of writing, he's also less than 200 followers away from reaching 25k on Twitch. See below for Ndukauba's 9,200 crystal summoning session on Dragon Ball Legends' Trio De Dangers banner.
#9: DBZ World
Last Month's Ranking: #4
DBZ World features Dokkan Battle news, leaks, and showcases on his channel. This period marks his fourth consecutive appearance in our top 10. In DBZ World's most popular recent upload (found below), he shows off the super attacks of a few new global units and the stats of some new EZAs.
Fun fact: RikuTheBest's YouTube channel was created over twelve years ago! He has the oldest channel among our top 10, beating out Goresh by less than one month. When Riku's not playing Dragon Ball Legends, we've seen him on Genshin Impact, Among Us, and Phasmophobia. Below, Riku shows off his completed Trio De Dangers fighters.
#7: Yaro G
Last Month's Ranking: #10
In early October, Yaro G asked his followers if they'd prefer more frequent videos with less editing, or fewer videos that contain more editing. The results
slightly favored more frequent videos. See below for one of Yaro G's more editing intensive videos; he recently hosted a meme week on the Dragon Ball Legends SubReddit
Last Month's Ranking: #5
The #5 rank is shared by two content creators who play both Dragon Ball Legends and Dokkan Battle. Goresh, fresh off reaching the 100k YouTube subscriber milestone in September, recently translated the Japanese V-Jump magazine teaser. Watch below to find out what's coming soon to both games!
Rhymestyle's brief absence from our top 10 lasted only one period. Since we last checked in on him, Rhymestyle reached the one million subscriber milestone on YouTube. Congratulations! In his recent upload below, Rhymestyle discusses how good Zenkai Super Saiyan 3 Goku is in Dragon Ball Legends.
#4: Tiger Uppercut Media
Last Month's Ranking: #3
The countdown is on! Tiger Uppercut Media is less than one month away from his YouTube channel's third anniversary (it was created on Nov 21st, 2017). Speaking of countdowns, Dokkan Battle's Halloween events have arrived. In the below video, Tiger breaks down the pre-Halloween data download in the game's global version.
Join us in welcoming KaggyFilms back to our top 10! His last appearance occurred five periods ago. This period, he made his triumphant return after posting Dragon Ball Legends content on his YouTube channel and streaming the game on Twitch! Drop by Kaggy's stream here
or see below for one of his recent DBL uploads - a summoning session on the Trio De Dangers banner.
Nanogenix and DaTruthDT once again duked it out for the top spot in our rankings. Nano held the #1 rank for two consecutive periods before DaTruth reclaimed the throne. See below for Nano's overview of the Dokkan Battle 6th anniversary celebration, a potential multiplayer mode, info from the Japanese V-Jump magazine, and the addition of SafetyNet.
Last Month's Ranking: #2
DaTruthDT reclaims the throne after three periods at #2! Among our top 10 ranked creators, he was the only one who came close to five million new YouTube views (no one else was able to reach two million). Watch below as DaTruth participates in Dokkan Battle's 37th World Tournament.
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.
