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

Ugh I hate the user "modernspongebobsucks" I HATE THAT NAME

2 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

Wanna join my free gift card giveaway

They just photoshop something and be like ", THIS JUST HAPPENED?! ". I skip to where the part would be but there isn't one. "Kids" Youtubers Channels are worse, but they're very close. - Qryzx

3 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

I don't know, Thomas Sanders did a good job with his channel.

Only few yters from vine are good like thomas sanders

4 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

At least Blastphamouse actually reacts, and is specific about stuff when he talks. Reaction Time is just... Blah. Most of my issue is the fans, but bruh, having sound effects and "sexy" music every video isn't "funny". In fact, the videos he reacts to are almost FULL SCREEN. He links the videos, but why link stuff when reacting to haters? I know he does leave out links, though, because his Fedora Man video.

Certain things will make people dislike all their videos before even looking at them, filling their comment section with empty death threats/misusing the word cringe, being immature/hypocritical in their comments or all the above (likely all).

Oh-- And disregarding Reaction Time and his fans, Reaction Channels are still bad. Example, looking up a cartoon episode and finding a blind reaction. You don't find it a big deal and click on it, only to get the worst audio in the world. It's up there with nails on a chalkboard to be honest. - Qryzx

5 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

6 The Cyberbully YouTubers

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

7 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!

Fortnite youtubers and call of duty youtubers are worse - B1ueNew

8 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.

9 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

10 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

They're the worst!
There are some videos where they would talk in a whisper, and when I turn up the volume, my ears explode. - BurritoSeal

Aka the under 13 year old YouTubers

The Newcomers

? The "do this, not that" thumbnails
? The kinds that put red arrows in their thumbnails.

The Contenders

11 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

12 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!

13 People filming dead bodies
14 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?

15 The Drama YouTubers
16 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.

17 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.

18 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

They'll fade as soon as GoAnimate For Schools will be shut down which is next year. So in 2-3 years, they will fade.

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

Annoying internet users that uses the word "ModernSpongebob" should get grounded next
No more grounding anyone like dora or caillou or ooby or barney

P.S. if you hate me for liking barney, you'll be grounded (at least not so long)

19 The Trend Follower YouTubers
20 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?


21 The Filming a Dead Body in the Suicide Forest YouTubers

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

This is so aimed it's funny

Someone please stop this. - isaaonrtdmtr

This is specific but should be number 1

22 The Roblox YouTubers

Roblox YouTubers are funny and good made story. Including Cryptize and ObliviousHD. But there are many clickbaiters. For example NicsterV, Kazok, Tazok, etc.


They say that there only is the human race...

They want to be treated differently because of their sexuality...

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

Oh my god, thank you!
I'm bi and I even think this sh� - t has gone far enough!
Look, if you're gay, bi, whatever, make a channel if you want.
But don't make a channel ABOUT THAT.
Nobody gives a tin sh� - t if you're gay.
Nobody needs ANOTHER "i'm trans give me pity and likes uwu" channel, and those who do just shouldn't have internet access.

24 Fortnite YouTubers

So many bad fortnite youtubers like morgz, ali a, ghost ninja, propepper, itsowen, top extract, etc - B1ueNew

25 The Christian YouTubers

They suck! Enough said.

How dare you hate the christian youtubers
that's it you're grounded (don't worry not for a million years) until you take this off the list
Go to your room now

(Don't judge me for acting like those goanimate bozos)

Read the bible instead - LightningStrike


26 The YouTubers that Find Dead Bodies

Logan Paul

27 YouTubers that Film Dead Bodies in Suicide Forest
28 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

29 The Laughing at Dead People YouTubers
30 Super Mario Logan YouTubers

I thought there was only one SuperMarioLogan... - jackintheboxisgross

31 "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.

32 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

Plushees are the best ones ever sml super mario bro to name but a few the best is (drumroll)geometry dash plush gamer so ya get it

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

33 Storytime YouTubers

*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

So you see them as a stereotypical female? Your statement is completely invalid as well. Most stories I hear aren't from drama queens. - Qryzx

34 Troll YouTubers
35 The Corporate YouTubers

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

No - venomouskillingmachine

36 The "Filming a dead body" Youtubers

*cough* Logan Paul *cough*

logan paul

37 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

38 The Diss Track Makers
39 Cartoon Reviewers
40 Clone YouTubers


41 People that Record Themselves Pole Dancing or Twerking
42 The Boring YouTubers

If you don't have a personality or sense of humour then you have no right to be a youtuber.

43 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

44 The “Stick to It” YouTuber
45 The Call of Duty YouTubers

Mostly made by drunk 8 year olds

Remember exility and jimbothy? - B1ueNew

46 The Preachers

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

47 The Beauty YouTuber

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

48 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

49 The Body Finding YouTubers

Okay, that's enough. - isaaonrtdmtr

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

50 The Brony YouTubers

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