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

There all creepy

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

Ex-viner YouTubers are sweaty bald 40 year olds like Logan Paul - TwilightKitsune

Only few yters from vine are good like thomas sanders

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

Just look at Ali-A...

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

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

I kidnapped someone but it's just a prank. - isaaonrtdmtr

I started a school shooting, but it was just a prank. - CloudInvasion

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!

ExplodingTNT makes me laugh with his "challenge" videos, but the Minecraft animations are dumb, mediocre and BORING!

6 The Criminal YouTubers

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

-.- 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

Example: JustDestiny. How does he have 1m subs?

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

Annoying and cancerous.-LitSavage

Like I honestly don’t understand why people watch these idiots. If u want good channels then watch, dan and phil, pewdiepie, Jenna Marbles, Liza Koshy OR ANYTHING ELSE

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

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

The Newcomers

? YouTubers that Film Dead Bodies in Suicide Forest

The Contenders

11 The Creepy YouTubers

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

12 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

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

Euuugh! Chewing Chicken, Smacking Lips, Using A Razor, What's Next, Breaking 20 Million Windows?

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 Trend Follower YouTubers
16 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

Caillou gets grounded so I can sexually pleasure myself over fictional torture porn that I wish the creators had made.
A brief summary of GoAnimate YouTubers. - isaaonrtdmtr

17 The Roblox YouTubers

We get it, you're gay.

You're gay

no one cares

doesn't make you special

It means that you're sexual preference is the same sex or you identify as a male/female

you're respected for you're gender

But don't expect that it is worthy to center your youtube career on your one lifetstyle

Viewers care about being entertained not knowing what genital you like

19 The Filming a Dead Body in the Suicide Forest YouTubers

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

We get it. You hate Logan Paul. Great! So does everyone else. - 3DG20

Someone please stop this. - isaaonrtdmtr

This is so aimed it's funny

20 The “Theory” YouTubers

Definitely MatPat he turned many people against Mario and still continues this hopefully he gets terminated (or at least the videos do)

This is mostly FNaF - Datguyisweird666

Incredibly dumb theories using poorly conceived "coincidences" and "references" to back themselves up.
But hey, that's just a theory. - isaaonrtdmtr

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.

21 The YouTubers that Find Dead Bodies

Logan Paul

22 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

23 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.

They make 20 min videos:
1 min: intro
10 min: talking about the incoming tutorial
3 min: The Tutorial!
5 min: ask for like and subscribe
1 min: ask you to watch the linked video

OFC the tutorial is always pointless (How to make a pen out of sugar + wire)

Does HowToBasic count as one? He's awesome.

24 The Laughing at Dead People YouTubers

God has disconnected - AStumpedHuman

25 "99% Satisfied" YouTubers

First of all these youtubers don't satisfy me at all. But there are many other reasons I hate them

One reason I do not like them is that most of these videos seem to be meant for younger people,like 9 or under.

These videos usually involve colorful objects being cut or or some colored cream or slime or paint being squeezed,cut,poured etc. Some are even sort of inappropriate.

99 percent of these youtubers seem to be male,although some are verified they aren't trustable for kids at all. They never seem to reveal their faces or talk and seem to be very private about their life. People who don't reveal anything about themselves are people who you should never trust. Even if they are verified.

DO NOT let your kids watch these channels,they could be pedophiles,hackers,sex offenders,trolls or even terrorists or murderers.

26 Storytime YouTubers

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

*Gets into one argument with boyfriend*
“Oh my god! Like, my boyfriend like, so totally dumped me and I’m like, depressed. My life like, sucks! ” - 3DG20

27 Troll YouTubers
28 The Corporate YouTubers

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

No - venomouskillingmachine

29 The "Filming a dead body" Youtubers

*cough* Logan Paul *cough*

30 The Christian YouTubers

They suck! Enough said.

31 The Made by Kid YouTubers

There’s a reason YouTube has an age limit on it. - 3DG20

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

32 People filming dead bodies


33 The Diss Track Makers
34 Super Mario Logan YouTubers
35 Clone YouTubers


36 People that Record Themselves Pole Dancing or Twerking
37 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 hate the snobby and pretentious ones the most. That means you, Mother's Basement and Digibro... - ModernSpongeBobSucks

*cough* ARTV *cough* - NiktheWiz

38 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

39 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?


40 The “Stick to It” YouTuber
41 The Call of Duty YouTubers

Mostly made by drunk 8 year olds

42 The Preachers

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

43 The Beauty YouTuber

I don’t get what’s so entertaining about watching some girl do her makeup or hair. - 3DG20

44 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

45 The Body Finding YouTubers

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

Okay, that's enough. - isaaonrtdmtr

46 The Brony YouTubers

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