Every two months, 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.
Note: We recently switched our posting schedule from every month to every two months. This edition covers the two-month period ending 10/1.
Get ready to meet a blast from the past! It's been two years since ClashX made an appearance in our rankings. Fun fact: The first Dokkan Battle video on his channel dates back to February 2016. For something more recent, see below for ClashX's latest upload to reach 100k views - his concept on what an LR Namek Goku revival animation would look like.
This period marks Gaming Next Door's first appearance in our top 10. This YouTuber's first Dragon Ball Legends upload dates back to May 2020. Prior to that, he spent about three years creating Pokémon gaming content. See below for a quick two summons he recorded on the daily discount banner.
Ndukauba and Gaming Next Door tied for eighth place in our rankings after finishing the period with nearly the same number of new YouTube subscribers and video views. According to this series of tweets from the end of September, Ndukauba has some issues with the new Nappa, Piccolo and Gohan units coming to Dragon Ball Legends. See below for his full thoughts on the three.
Fun fact: Peti and #4 ranked Dokkan World are both making their second consecutive (and second ever) appearances in our top 10. Peti recently celebrated the 7th anniversary of his YouTube channel creation, while his earliest Dragon Ball Legends video dates back two years. In a recent upload (found below), he uses an all-Gohan team and jokingly refers to the game as "Gohan Ball Legends".
JPhanta is closing in on 75k YouTube subscribers. At his current pace, we expect him to reach this milestone in November. On the Twitch side of things, he recently hit 15k followers. Drop by JPhanta's Twitch stream here or watch below for his attempt at completing the Collection of Epic Battles event in Dokkan Battle with a F2P EZA Planet Namek team.
Tiger Uppercut Media kicks off the top half of our top 10. Fun fact: He's less than two months away from the fourth anniversary of his YouTube channel creation! Drop by Tiger's Twitch streams here or check out the below video for his take on three EZAs coming first to Dokkan Battle's global version. Usually new content drops first on the Japanese version, but not this time!
Dokkan World climbed one rank to settle in at #4. Compared to the previous period, he amassed fewer new YouTube subscribers but more video views. This Dokkan Battle specialist doesn't speak in his videos, instead opting to let his gameplay do the talking. See below to watch him take on Stage 300 of the TEQ Transforming Frieza EZA event.
Goresh is famous in the Dragon Ball Legends and Dokkan Battle community for his Japanese to English translations of official news and leaks. In recent weeks, we've also seen him dabble in Pokémon Masters content. See below for his most recent video to hit 100k views - a look at LF Great Ape Vegeta in DBL.
Nanogenix holds the #2 spot in our rankings for the second consecutive period. In the video below, Nano and frequent collaborator Rhymestyle (who finished #11) make their final Dokkan Battle video together. Rhymestyle is quitting Dokkan but will continue to upload other Dragon Ball content. Nano, on the other hand, will still be playing both games.
DaTruthDT is the most active uploader in our top 10. In the past two months, he's averaging an impressive 5+ uploads per day and is the only YouTuber in our top 10 to break 10 million total views. Talk about dedication! In one of DaTruth's most popular recent uploads (found below), he showcases his level 10 and 100% rainbowed EZA LR Bardock in 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 Socialblade. 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.
