Top 10 YouTubers Who "Died"

When YouTubers gain views and subscribers, they become important, but when YouTubers quit their accounts or die of health problems, they are gone forever.

Here's a list of YouTubers who "died". Death falls into two definitions here, 1, passing away due to any health condition, and 2, quitting something important forever.

The Top Ten

1 Fred Fred

Tasteless humor, stupid haircut, and cheap humor. I know I repeated humor TWICE but it was needed.

Burn him to hell.

He was so annoying, but at least he left.

RIP fred

2 Caleb Logan

That is so sad

The youngest to die on YouTube, at only 13. R.I.P. :(

Caleb Logan, popular YouTuber, has died at 13, he gained fame as the oldest of 3 siblings, and later died.

Doctors have confirmed the cause of death to be hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, which hasn't been diagnosed, and he will be remembered forever. - nelsonerica

It's sad that some people die so young. - RiverClanRocks

I'm not a girlie-girl but she will always be a role model of mine. - Cesium

6 Kingsley

He was a pop culture on YouTube, he made everyone learn more about YouTube.

But then in 2014, he announced that year would be his last year on YouTube, he told everyone that YouTube used to be a great site for everyone, but "now, YouTube's a business for most people, and there's just so much stupid **** going on behind the scenes, it’s ridiculous.".

The Newcomers

? Charles Trippy

He’s still alive but stopped vlogging daily in 2019. He held the record for the most vlogs ever done every day without stopping, a whopping 3,653. He was worn & decided to move onto other things. A truly bittersweet end to a long historic achievement. No one else ever did what he did. R.I.P. daily vlogging. - SamanthaRosie

The Contenders

11 Dax Flame

Dax Flame had a wonderfully bizarre channel going for himself with tons of adoring fans, which is why no one quite understood why he just decided to up and leave YouTube one day. He randomly returned last year, showing off a new book of his and excited to share news of his appearance in 22 Jump Street. After following up with a couple of other videos, he pulled a Houdini and vanished yet again. - nelsonerica

12 Angry Grandpa

R.i.p. Agp You are in a better place now

It felt like he was my grandpa I watch the videos all the time he was so emurcher and silly and weird but that's why I loved and cared about him till the end of his Life.


Rip Agp

13 Hannah Minx
14 Monty Oum

He was brilliant and died way before his time. He dropped out of high school and self taught himself how to animate in 3D. His first project was Haloid - an original fan animation that combines the Halo and Metroid series, followed by the Dead Fantasy series - a fan series that combines Final Fantasy and Dead or Alive characters in epic fights. He eventually had to put the series on hold when Rooster Teeth hired him to work on Red VS Blue, a popular web series. Later, he eventually created his own hugely successful original web series, RWBY.

Rest In Peace, you will be always the Best in the Polandball Community

Great youtuber. Really liked his contributions to the polandball community.

16 Annoying Orange

He is so annoying. What I mean by annoying is his voice... please stop making videos which this non living creature.

Um, he's still alive. I find most of these lists to be innacurate, especially the 'Top Ten Worst Kids Shows List' though there are SOME kids shows on it that suck. I saw Total Drama on that list and I'm like-What the heck?! TD isn't EVEN AIMED for kids! It's like, for teens! PG, fellers! Sesame Street I don't care about at all. I apologize if you like Sesame Street, but I personally think those puppets are creepy. Not as creepy as Teletubbies though.

The reason why lists like these are so inaccurate is because ANYONE can edit ANYTHING onto the list.

RIP Annoying orange...Not!

17 Ryan Hyga

He still makes videos on YouTube.

Lol he's not dead...

18 Christina Grimmie

Why did he even shoot her? He should have known that she doesn't love him, she's never even heard of him prior to the meet-and-greet! - Cesium

She was shot on June 10 during a concert, we'll never forget that day. - nelsonerica

HOW COULD SHE BE 20TH ON THIS LIST?! She has the voice of an angel, and some crazy fan found out that she had a boyfriend and decided to shoot her at her concert.

She should go MUCH HIGHER! She was the most amazing and beautiful YouTuber to inspire the world, and Kevin James shot her, He's EVIL and YouTube got struck for the FIRST TIME by TERROR!

19 Alex Day

How the hell is Failrace on this list? Please someone tell me how his channel is dead!?
