Top Ten YouTubers of 2018

A new year, a new series of YouTube videos. Which channels will prove to be the one with the best content in the forthcoming months?

The Top Ten

1 Victoria King
2 KuchenTV KuchenTV

German dark humored blogger who stands for differentiated opinions, and fights against bigotry and other more mainstream YouTubers for clickbaiting. He is extremely intelligent, but his humor would instantly kill his career if he was an American, but made him popular in Germany. Almost all of his videos make fun of pedophilia, shootings, suicides and more, but it is purely sarcastic and for comic purposes (he is opposed to all this). The great thing about him is that he is the rare position of not having to care about the reactions. His content is so intelligent and valid that he is allowed such humor and non-conform opinions, and doesn't get the "shock value" stamp. Like when watching South Park, you get to hear insightful content, but at the same time get to laugh about the lowest kind of humor.

In 2018, he so far made the best video about Logan Paul's scandal. He analysed Paul's reactions and found them to be authentic and not making fun of the victim (laughter is a common ...more - Martin_Canine

3 coldmirror coldmirror Kathrin Fricke, better known by her channel name coldmirror, is a German YouTube star, voice actress, comedian, web host and internet personality born on October 13, 1984 . more.

The first and probably most influential German YouTube star, comedy/podcast/trivia/abridging YouTuber coldmirror, isn't the biggest anymore, but she's definitely the most loved. Having been around since 2006, she just kept the original YT vibe: infrequent uploads when she feels like it, not monetizing her videos, doing whatever she likes, simply broadcasting herself at her own terms. It's always great fun to watch and what she does is much respected and acknowledged in times where YouTube became something like regular T.V.. - Martin_Canine

4 Rap Critic Rap Critic

When it comes to analysing American rap lyrics, he is the best. He has the intelligence needed to look beyond the basic stuff, and the humor to make it interesting. The biggest point you can criticize about him is that he only focuses on the lyrics. Young Thug for example is all about the flow, and in that respect, he's the best trap rapper, as he essentially performs what was known as scat in 60s jazz music and completely merges into the beat. But yeah, he barely has any lyrics that aren't phrases. Nevertheless, I think it is important to have a critic who looks deeper into the matter of what a rapper actually says and who has the insight to back that up. - Martin_Canine

5 Pewdiepie Pewdiepie

Wish he started doing his gaming videos again

He is a sage now

He is so funny with his meme review’s and LWIAY’s. Glad he stopped his cringey gaming videos

6 Darkmatter2525 Darkmatter2525

The best atheist YouTuber ever! - Aragorn98

7 ConCrafter ConCrafter

Once a let's player, now one of the biggest German reaction YouTubers, he feels just real, authentic and honest. Even though constantly joking about being dumb, he really isn't. He knows very well how big he is and what an influence he has on his often young viewers, and tries to stand for the right things. He's just a guy with whose videos you can have a very good time. - Martin_Canine

Apparently he now has 3 million subscribers and is the 15th most subscribed German YouTube channel (11th if you don't count music and soccer channels that aim at international audiences, such as Kontor Records or freekickers).

Even though I frequently watch his videos... I had no idea he's that huge in the meantime. When I subscribed to him, he was famous but had at least a million subscribers less. - Martin_Canine

8 Chris Stuckmann Chris Stuckmann

Hands down the most respected and homest youtuber out there he is great he has never gone downhill like all the other youtubers

The Contenders

11 Gronkh Gronkh

Germany's biggest let's player, and until pseudo-reality / beauty blogger BibisBeautyPalace (known to international audiences as Bibi H. for her... "special" song "How It Is (Wap Bap...)") surpassed him last year, the most subscribed German YouTube channel by a single person and not aimed at worldwide audiences. Gronkh, who is significantly older than most YouTubers, has also been around since the beginnings of YouTube and hasn't changed a bit. While rich simply due to his videos, he is all authentic and not as commercial as other big YouTubers, entertaining people with his fun attitude without clickbaiting and drama in the classic YouTube sense. - Martin_Canine

12 BrothaNate BrothaNate

BrothaNate is an American reaction YouTuber who gathered fame exclusively in Germany as he started reacting to German hip hop. While the American YouTube isn't all too well known in Germany (unless there's a scandal), Germans discovered his channel and since then kept on suggesting him songs. Since it proved to be such a success, now only reacts to German hip hop anymore. While he's not a critic like Rap Critic or 2Bough and just reacts on an emotional basis, it's very interesting to see what an American thinks of the German hip hop scene (without understanding the lyrics of course). - Martin_Canine

13 Jacksepticeye Jacksepticeye

Love this guy he makes me happy when sad or mad.

The only YT guy I know here is this guy. I voted for him because he looked like DanTDM who I hate. I've also watched one of his videos. Am I the only one that's asking where Logan and (cringy faker) Jake paul is? This made my heart break! T-T

14 The Anime Man The Anime Man Joey Bizinger (Born September 28, 1994), known on YouTube as The Anime Man, is an Australian YouTuber who makes videos about anime and gaming related topics. He is good friends with fellow Youtubers Einshine and Soul Animation and they have appeared in each other's videos. He is currently dating YouTuber more.

Contrary to his username, he's a real person - TwilightKitsune

20 Butch Hartman Butch Hartman Elmer Earl Hartman IV, better known as Butch Hartman, is an American animator, writer, director, producer, illustrator and actor, best known for creating the Nickelodeon shows The Fairly OddParents, Danny Phantom, T.U.F.F. Puppy, and Bunsen Is a Beast.

Allow me to explain myself, but TheTopTens REALLY needs to give Butch Hartman credit for what he's contributed to YouTube with his YouTube channel. He was already a phenomenally creative animator who gave us classic Nickelodeon shows like childhood favorites The Fairly OddParents and Danny Phantom and his most recent ones T.U.F.F. Puppy and Bunsen is a Beast. However, him joining YouTube was probably the greatest thing to ever come out of him since the creation of his iconic animated shows. He's got drawing characters 10 years later, he's got drawing characters in the Fairly OddParents style, he's got Deadpool invading pop culture, you name it. Can't wait to see what content he brings out next in 2018. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

He's awesome my favourite YouTuber. - PatrickStar3

21 2Bough 2Bough

2Bough is a German producer who once worked with Kollegah and SpongeBozz and now reviews songs released by YouTubers from an unbiased point of view. I don't know about the USA, but in Germany it feels like every YouTuber, good or bad, releases songs or even albums. Most are immediately bashed by the entire YouTube community, often simply for being by YouTubers. 2Bough now ignores who they are by and judges simply by the music - beatwork, lyrics, flow, professional mixing, and personal taste - and then gives feedback. Interestingly, his opinions only sometimes agree with the hate. For example, he also (rightfully) panned "How It Is (Wap Bap...)" by Bibi H., but for valid reasons, but praised "Range Rover Mansory" by ApoRed (also rightfully), not understanding the hate apart from who it is by. - Martin_Canine

Old supermariologan is the best, new supermariologan sucks, thanks to Jeffy

He ruined his channel because of Jeffy

23 Saberspark Saberspark

Without a doubt one of my favorite YouTubers of this decade. Want proof? His "What Ruined? " series and animation essay videos on certain animation studios ranging from their history to their current state are truly worth talking about. Not to mention he knows his stuff when it comes to YouTube when he made that video discussing the issue of YouTube kids' channels. Also, his top 10 lists and animation reviews are something to really look forward to in his previous videos and the videos to come in the future. Overall, Saberspark is a phenomenal YouTuber and I hope he continues to grow and expand in his prominence on YouTube. Plus, he seems like a great guy to hang out with since he's always supportive of his fans and has a kind personality. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

24 ralphthemoviemaker ralphthemoviemaker

This guy really puts a lot of thought in effort into his videos. He even makes movies and one of them was put in a theater. Even though I don't agree with all of his opinions he is still my favorite because he definitely knows what he's talking about at the least. He is still somewhat underrated. - Phillip873

27 Katja Krasavice Katja Krasavice

Next to BibisBeautyPalace and Leon Machére, Katja Krasavice is probably the most hated of the big German YouTubers. She rose to fame relatively quick in 2016 and is now famous in the entire German YouTube scene. Bibi is hated because she is all about cash (product placement to luxury brands, clickbait titles, reality T.V. like drama, trying to appeal to a young and impressible audience,...), Leon Machére because he is a hole who doesn't take criticism and physically attacked other YouTubers (caught on tape). But Katja... she's hated because she is a sex YouTuber. Her video blogs express her promiscuous lifestyle, she talks about what turns her on, and about her sexual experiences, she's no hands barred with graphic detail. Sex is a part of her life she enjoys mostm And may I say so, whether she plays a persona or is authentic (I'm not sure), it's needed that such a YouTuber gets mainstream attention. Because in the 2010s, it must be socially acceptable to be completely open about ...more - Martin_Canine

44 Freaksomc Freaksomc

With more than 340.000 subscribers, videos that have partly reached millions of views and a relatively mundane fanbase, German YouTuber FreaksoMC, who makes Pokémon parodies, fandubs and pop rap music, is definitely one of the most successful furries on YouTube. Especially considering his videos are not in English. - Martin_Canine

Since I added pictures to all items that had none, and I really have no clue about the American YouTube scene right now:
What's with all the plush YouTubers? Is that a trend now in the US? What do these YouTubers do in their videos? Are they regarded as good or bad YouTubers? - Martin_Canine
