Top Ten Worst Types of YouTubers

There are many types of YouTubers who generally put out content of the same style. A lot of these types are usually terrible! Here we count down the worst.

The Top Ten

1 The "Kids" Channel YouTubers

The reason why I quoted "kids" channels is because I'm referring to the abominations that make those bizarre and totally not for kids "Spider-Man and Elsa" (or any other character kids like) videos that pass off as for kids. If you still don't know what I'm talking about, look it up. These channels range from content that is stupid to content that is incredibly disturbing and hard to watch. YouTube should consider ridding of these horrible types of YouTubers. - Phillip873

These types of channels are also known as Elsagate channels, and they're among the most objectively worst genres of YouTube channels out there. The content of these channels amounts to videos in which fictional characters usually get into inappropriate situations such as getting kidnapped, hurting other characters, being attacked by insects, and even adultery and fake suicide! There's also a lot of creepy theories regarding these channels and their content, two of the more alarming theories being instilling learned helplessness in kids and pedophiles making these videos to groom unsuspecting young viewers. Thank god YouTube's finally cracking down on these channels. - WindWakerFan

Saberspark made a great video detailing what these "kids" channels are and why they should be stopped. Seriously, why has it been so long until YouTube recently decided to finally do something about this problem? - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Spider-Man and Elsa is NOT FOR KIDS! - Elijah_Cook

2 The Ex-Viner YouTubers

These types of people had to migrate after that godawful "Vine" was shut down. They tend to make really obnoxious vlogs MOST of the time, or may do something else. These horrible types of Youtubers are everywhere, but the biggest example I could think of is the Paul brothers. They seriously are just terrible! - Phillip873

Jake paul is the worst of all of them - BoyGenius234

YouTube and Vine are 2 different things. Do not combine them! - RaccoonCartoon

They're a new type of cancer, aren't they? - Elijah_Cook

3 The Clickbait YouTubers

YouTube has its policies about misleading content (which they consistently ignore). These rules are always broken and YouTube does nothing about it. - isaaonrtdmtr

These channels could be anything from gaming to vlogs, but one thing they have in common is that they are of the clickbait type, who put interesting things in the title only to not deliver what was promised in the video. They really get on most people's nerves (obviously including me). - Phillip873

4 The "Prank" YouTubers

They used to be WAY more relevant a couple years back, but these Youtubers most of the time perform very poor pranks or very cruel pranks that aren't entertaining at all! - Phillip873

Used to be funny, nowadays people go too far. - RaccoonCartoon

Just idiots who appeal to young children who have yet to develop empathy. - Sop

IT'S JUST A PRANK, BRO! - phillysports

5 The Minecraft YouTubers

Frankly I find little entertaining about them. They're about as thrilling as having Morgan Freeman read Twilight to you. - isaaonrtdmtr

Honestly, it's not very entertaining to just watch someone play Minecraft. Game or no game, please don't complain.

Just because this is posted by weirdos who hate Minecraft, minecraft hater!

This is what makes Minecraft overrated. It’s okay but why did it have to take over Youtube? What’s next fortnite? - Gametheorysucks

6 The Criminal YouTubers

Those who commit serious crimes and get arrested for what they've done or posted on YouTube.

Criminals should never be on Youtube. - RaccoonCartoon

-.- Seriously police- look at these guys' channels and ARREST.THEM.

Two Words: Suicide Forest
I can’t believe Logan Paul put a dead body on YouTube and made fun of suicide.

7 Reaction YouTubers

I totally forgot about these terrible YouTubers! Most of them just sit in front of a video you could watch YOURSELF and then give a half assed "reaction" like a small chuckle or something, but most of the time, they are silent! The only exception I can think of is The Fine Brothers channel, as at least they make cuts instead of just showing the full video and people sitting in front of it! I can't believe I haven't added this yet. - Phillip873

It's so annoying when I try to look up a cartoon episode on YouTube but instead find these. If you want to give service to people upload the original version - TwilightKitsune

Hey kids, ever wanted your channel to garner tons of views without having to make quality content? Just make a video of yourself reacting to other people's quality videos! - Jackamalio

IDubbbz has made Content Cop videos on the majority of these YouTuber examples. I highly recommend checking those videos out. - phillysports

I've seen all his content cops already, I was so upset that I forgot to put these types in the original mix of this list - Phillip873

8 The Daily Vloggers

I think a lot of these types of Youtubers are very boring or annoying to watch, as I could care less about what they are doing in life. But YouTube I guess wants to keep promoting these stupid channels. - Phillip873

And this is what caused the algorithm to fall over itself. - naFrovivuS

WE DON'T GIVE A CRAP! - RaccoonCartoon

Annoying and cancerous.-LitSavage

9 The Loud and Obnoxious YouTubers

These types of YouTubers rely on the fact that they can be loud an flashy to get a big audience (mainly children under 13). They are incredibly irritating to watch! - Phillip873

Aka the under 13 year old YouTubers - Gametheorysucks

Awful. - RaccoonCartoon

10 The Toy Review YouTubers

This sort of ties into the "kids" channels, but not quite. These channels usually review toys by completely spoiling their children and forcing them to do videos against their will. I don't know why people enjoy watching children get spoiled with toys! - Phillip873

"Toy Review" should be in quotes considering most of these channels are just little kids playing with toys. - isaaonrtdmtr

And what's worse is that most have over 3 MILLION subscribers. - Drawbox

Spoilt brat kids. - RaccoonCartoon

? Cartoon Reviewers
? Super Mario Logan YouTubers

11 The ASMR YouTubers

These types of YouTube channels are actually relatively abundant, and that's no good! Basically, ASMR (Autonomous sensory meridian response) is that one tingling response your skin makes to sensitive sounds, such as scratching on a microphone, rubbing small pieces of paper together gently, etc. I'm not aure if this is some fetish or not, but people really enjoy getting that feeling, and they go to these types of Youtubers for these videos. The videos tend to be somewhat creepy or hilariously stupid. It's just very strange! - Phillip873

Literally people having orgasms because of how much they like a sound. I find it crazy. - RaccoonCartoon

It's the weirdest one on the list. All they do is smack their lips for, like, a HOUR and they get so many views!

Just a bunch of people licking your ears. - awesomedp900

12 The Creepy YouTubers

I actually don't mind these ones. They're interesting to watch. - RaccoonCartoon

By this I mean more obscure channels like Meatsleep and 01a51cd0. These channels are super creepy and there are theories as to what they're about. Some even say they're run by serial killers! - Aragorn98

13 The Cyberbully YouTubers

I am so glad these are fading away. Rot in the pits of obscurity, Leafy. - Zach808

14 The Drama YouTubers
15 The "Filming a dead body and laughing about it" Youtuber

You mean Logan Paul? -LitSavage

16 The Trend Follower YouTubers
17 Goanimate Users

Who even still uses GoAnimate? Based on some of the Grounded videos I've seen, they're all just simplified caricatures of fictional characters with monotone voices that say one fictional character is grounded for a randomly high amount of years in caps lock. How devoid of quality these GoAnimate users are and the fact that they're still prominent baffles me. Hopefully, they'll fade into irrelevance in the next decade or two. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Oh my god I just remembered these. It's mostly a community of people making videos of Caillou and Dora getting grounded. And the goanimate program is so minimal in its use that they are very poorly made videos. People take them seriously though and it's hilarious - Phillip873

Grounded videos in general are just the worst. - NiktheWiz

You are grounded grounded grounded for 3748383749393748399091282938485483902928283849393001010911 years. Who the hell wants to see something as idiotic as GoAnimate?

18 The Roblox YouTubers
19 Unboxers

You're opening up a box that we know EXACTLY what's inside. um...exciting? - taishisohma

If I want the thrill of opening a damn box, I’ll just get the product myself, thank you. - Zach808

20 Troll YouTubers
21 The Corporate YouTubers

You know who I am talking. The channels for Jimmy Fallon, Ellen DeGeneres, etc.

No - venomouskillingmachine

22 The "Filming a dead body" Youtubers

*cough* Logan Paul *cough*

Logan Paul is on here twice. - RaccoonCartoon

23 The Laughing at Dead People YouTubers

Why the hell is Logan Paul on this list three times? - RaccoonCartoon

24 The Made by Kid YouTubers

Sometimes like channels like react or evantube it’s just some random reacting to something in a stupid manner that just annoys me other YouTubers like these kids that make 3 am videos that are just really cringe to watch examples don’t make slime a 3 am don’t spin the fidget spinner at 3 am sure I’m actually younger than the kids who do that 3 am thing and other videos like real vs gummy is just kids eating stuff and to be honest these videos aren’t worth your time

25 People filming dead bodies


26 The “Theory” YouTubers

I’m looking directly at you Matpat. claim your theories as fact and cannot take criticism and manipulate the Fanbase into believing a bunch of B.S like Mario is a psycopath Hitler. Then be a Hypocrite and say it’s just a theory. - Gametheorysucks


We get it, you're gay.

28 The Critic YouTubers

Ok, this one is low on here because some of my favorite YouTubers actually critique things. But they are of a small majority. A lot of critic channels tend to fall into the category of whiny or over the top when they don't like something. This could apply to the critique of any media. - Phillip873

I can only watch critic videos if it's somehow funny. Serious critics are just boring. - RaccoonCartoon

I hate the snobby and pretentious ones the most. That means you, Mother's Basement and Digibro... - ModernSpongeBobSucks

*cough* ARTV *cough* - NiktheWiz

29 Plush YouTubers

I don't really care for plush YouTubers. The closest thing to me ever liking a plush video was those SpongeBob plush videos by Fried Chili Cheese Dogs. Heck, the Everything video had Plankton lampshading commercialism since it's what most plush videos on YouTube are all about. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

SML (Super mario logan) swears in his videos which to me makes it funnier. I don't really care for the plush videos that are intended for little kids but I don't hate them - venomouskillingmachine

Plushtubers are awesome like SuperMarioLogan, TheLegendOfJohnnyAlbert, AndrewJohn100, BigYoshiFan.

The only 3 plush channels I like are mariomario8989, stachbros, & Fried Chili Cheese Dogs. Otherwise supermariologan sucks now. And don’t get me started on bootleg plush channels

30 Storytime YouTubers

*These youtubers in a nutshell*
Pilot: Take your seats. *hijacker comes in*

31 Show Off YouTubers

These are the ones I hate. Ones like morgz who get ten thousand pounds to show you how rich they are and then pretend they are just playing paper toss?! And all they talk about is their merch?


32 The Tutorial YouTubers

They make videos like "How to Make Popcorn" and "How to Clean a Kitchen Floor." Who needs these? They just make tutorials on stuff anybody could easily do.

33 The “Stick to It” YouTuber
34 The Christian YouTubers

They suck! Enough said.

35 The Call of Duty YouTubers

Mostly made by drunk 8 year olds

36 The Preachers

This basically applies to any YouTuber who tries to throw pseudo-insparational speeches at us. - NiktheWiz

37 The Beauty YouTuber
38 The Filming a Dead Body in the Suicide Forest YouTubers

4 Logan Paul things? What's next? The body filming youtubers? - AStumpedHuman

39 Fetish YouTubers

YouTube's community guidelines state that fetish content on the site will get age restricted or taken down, but these types of channels clearly don't seem to care about that. - WindWakerFan

Spider-Man and Elsa. - Elijah_Cook

40 The Diss Track Makers
41 The Body Finding YouTubers

Sorry. Just had to do it after someone mentioned it.

42 The Brony YouTubers

I hate MLP and Bronies. This is why I putted them on the list.
