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 9/17.
#7 (Tie): Ndukauba
Ndukauba, a Dragon Ball Legends YouTuber, was busy grinding the Ginyu event in September. Watch the video below to see him attempt to crack level 90! In other news, Ndukauba tweeted
his excitement about some upcoming RPG releases. Fear not - we expect him to continue creating Dragon Ball Legends content while he plays other games!
ClashX enters our top 10 for the first time! This YouTuber began uploading Dokkan Battle videos in January 2016. Nearly four years later, ClashX continues to upload Dokkan Battle content. Check out the video below to watch him showcase various SSJ 2 Teen Gohan super attacks over the years.
#7 (Tie): DBZ World
Last Month's Ranking: #14
This period marks DBZ World's first top 10 ranked appearance in half a year! Since we last checked in, this YouTuber amassed 13,000 more new subscribers and broke the 20 and 25 million total video view milestones. His return to our rankings can be partially attributed to a handful of uploads that each surpassed 100,000 views (his average uploads generate less than 20k). Check out DBZ World's most recent "100k+ video" below. It features a bunch of new Dokkan Battle attack animations.
RikuTheBest, a Dragon Ball Legends content creator, is one of four who tied for the #7 rank. Among the four, Riku ranked 3rd in new YouTube subscribers and video views, and 1st in new Twitch followers and channel views. On the console front, Riku announced
that he recently beat Borderlands 3 and will be diving back into Monster Hunter World. Drop by his Twitch channel here

#5: Tiger Uppercut Media
Last Month's Ranking: #7 (Tie)
According to this tweet
, Tiger Uppercut Media experienced some rotten luck on the Dokkan Battle LR Gohan banner. Luckily (or not), another LR banner was right around the corner. Watch the video below to see if Tiger's luck improved on the LR Androids banner! In other exciting news, Tiger's closing in on 75,000 YouTube subscribers. At his current pace, he should reach the milestone in October.
D-Free is back in the top five for the first time in four months! Compared to the previous period, he amassed 1,000 more new YouTube subscribers and 600,000 more YouTube video views. Check out the video below to watch D-Free discuss some Dragon Ball Legends teasers, including this cryptic tweet

Nanogenix suffered an illness
during the middle part of September, but (as of writing) he appears to have recovered. At his current YouTube subscriber growth pace, we expect Nano to reach 500,000 subs just before the end of the year. Drop by his Twitch channel here

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) since last edition based on the views generated by their top Dokkan Battle or Legends 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 Dokkan Battle and Legends 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 in at least 1 of the tracked games during the current period AND having generated 100 or more subscribers. 'Active' in the New Twitch Followers category is defined as having streamed at least 1 of the tracked games 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 at least 1 of the tracked games during the current period. For example, if 90% of creators uploaded a YouTube video of at least 1 of the tracked games 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).
