9 Markiplier Markiplier Mark Edward Fischbach (born June 28, 1989), known online as Markiplier, is an American YouTube personality. Originally from Honolulu, Hawaii, he began his career in Cincinnati, Ohio, and is currently based in Los Angeles, California.

Hands Down the best Youtuber! Been subbed to him since scp containment breach. Fantastic commentary and is really funny! I had to add him because he wasn’t on the list! Vote Plier! - Natodon466

10 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

The Contenders

11 Jacksepticeye Jacksepticeye Seán William McLoughlin, better known by his online pseudonym Jacksepticeye, is an Irish YouTube personality, known primarily for his comedic Let's Play series and vlogs.

Best youtuber ever seen

Funny Best Youtuber Ever

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

12 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

His channels was unexpectedly taken down as he received 3 strikes within one day for absolutely stupid reasons (nudity and bullying, both of which didn't occur). Imagine that: this guy makes a living out of YouTube, suddenly he lost everything for something he hasn't even done.

Fortunately, after a few hours his channel was back with all subscribers and videos. YouTube had a very fast reaction there in noticing that they did wrong. - Martin_Canine

13 Dude Perfect
14 2Bough 2Bough

Good youtuber - AliciaMae

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

Underrated guy! - B1ueNew

16 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 . ...read 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

17 Memeulous
18 Phantom Strider

He is so polite even when he is saying criticism about some shows, so that it doesn't feel like a punch in your face. It just feels like understanding

This guy's so funny and awesome he's done great Top 10 Lists. - PatrickStar3

19 Darkmatter2525 Darkmatter2525

The best atheist YouTuber ever!

20 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

21 Gronkh Gronkh Erik Range, also called Gronkh, is a German YouTube personality, computer games developer, computer and video game journalist, musician and entrepreneur best known for creating and publishing the YouTube playthrough video game series Let's Play.

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

22 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

23 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

24 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.

You know... The previous comment I had for this item really hasn't aged well... Why? Well, let's just say Butch Hartman essentially destroyed his own career what with his bizarre reactions to criticisms of his Oaxis streaming service and how he's putting down his own fans and deleting any evidence against him of how much of a manipulative scumbag he is. Yeah, you can pretty much tell I lost my respect for this guy. Hurts to see one of the biggest Nickelodeon animators fall from grace so hard. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Well he should be lower now... after well the Oaxis controversy...

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

25 Logan Paul Logan Paul Logan Alexander Paul is an American social media entertainer and actor. He first gained fame through videos shared on the internet video service Vine, in which the athletic Paul engages in physical comedy, including slapstick pratfalls and public splits.

His so cool

They said it was gonna be an easy grab

WELL IT AIN'T NO EASY GRAB THEY GOT T

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

40 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

Legit the best. Really versatile. Can go from creepy to funny at the drop of a hat. He’s the only one who really does what he does online and though he’s struggled a lot he’s still here. He is crazy good at production value and loves his fans for who they are. He’s amazing.
