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 3/27.
#9 (Tie): DBZ World
Last Month's Ranking: #3
DBZ World, a Dokkan Battle specialist, makes his second consecutive top 10 appearance - though he did drop six ranks. Compared to the previous period, he amassed nearly 6k fewer YouTube subscribers and nearly two million fewer views. As of writing, DBZ World 's five latest uploads all feature either EZA LR Broly (see below) or INT Broly, both of which recently dropped in the global version of Dokkan.
#9 (Tie): D-Free*
Last Month's Ranking: #15
D-Free makes our top 10 for the first time in 2021! He recently appeared on the 26th episode of 59 Gaming's Dragon Ball Legends podcast, titled "Krillin It" to commemorate Krillin's Zenkai Awakening. Third-ranked Goresh also appears on the podcast. Listen to the podcast here
or see below for one of D-Free's recent uploads featuring Krillin.
Last Month's Ranking: N/A
DBZoom is closing in on 50k YouTube subscribers! At his current pace, we expect him to reach this milestone in late April. DBZoom recently tweeted
his excitement for the upcoming Dragon Ball Legends 3rd anniversary, which is happening in about two months. Check out the video below for his 3rd anniversary discussion.
#7: Yaro G
Last Month's Ranking: #11
Yaro G returns to our top 10 after a one-month absence, thanks in part to his strong YouTube subscriber gains; among our top 10, he ranks #2 in this category. Check out the video below for the latest installment of his popular Dragon Ball Legends Cursed Images series.
Last Month's Ranking: N/A
Another content creator has reentered our top 10! ToonRami makes his second-ever appearance in our upper echelon, his first since the fall of 2020. See below for his most popular recent upload - a live reaction to Dokkan Battle's Saiyan Day Dokkan Now stream.
Nanogenix recently held a charity Twitch stream that raised over $1,500
for the American Red Cross. Although he didn't play Dokkan Battle or Dragon Ball Legends on the stream, he did play other Dragon Ball games. Watch the charity stream here
or see below for his live reaction to the Ultra Legendary Super Saiyan Goku reveal in DBL.
#4: Tiger Uppercut Media
Last Month's Ranking: #4 (Tie)
Tiger Uppercut Media recently hit an impressive score in Dokkan Battle's Super Saiyan 2 Gohan (Youth) Chain Battle. How high do you think he got? Click here
for his score! Tiger is a big fan
of Broly, so it's no surprise he summoned on the new INT Broly banner in global Dokkan. Drop by Tiger's Twitch stream here
or see below for a Broly summoning session with fellow YouTubers Periodik and SSJ Viper.
There's been a lot of speculation about whether or not the Videl-themed Dokkan Battle teaser was an April Fool's joke. Goresh shared his prediction
in this tweet, and it turns out his hunch was right! See below for a longer-than-usual video by Goresh's standards, in which he makes a push for top 30 on the Dragon Ball Legends ranked PVP leaderboard.
Last Month's Ranking: #4 (Tie)
Raiyuden recently reached the 100k YouTube subscriber milestone. Congratulations! Among our top 10 this period, he ranks #1 in new YouTube subscribers. Raiyuden's most popular recent upload (found below) is a Dragon Ball Legends PvP video featuring LF Super Saiyan Rosé.
Last Month's Ranking: #1
DaTruthDT claims the Dragon Ball mobile throne for the third consecutive month, thanks to an impressive haul of YouTube video views. Among our top 10, his new videos generated nearly triple the number of views as his closest competitor. See below for DaTruth's final verdict on the Pettan Battle event in the Japanese version of Dokkan Battle.

*Disclosure: This content creator is a paid participant in the Lootcakes affiliate partnership program. However, his appearance here is based entirely on his YouTube and Twitch performance for the current period.
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.
