The 30 Most Viewed Twitch Streamers of All Time

Twitch is the new Hollywood, and streamers are the new movie stars. As a statement, it might sound ridiculous, but it’s a sentiment that is growing among younger generations, who are greeted to the online world by legions of streamers who have replaced the role of traditional “famous people” in their eyes.

To celebrate this, we wanted to take a look at the 30 most-viewed Twitch streamers of all time, to see who makes the cut. There’ll be some you recognize, and others you don’t – you might even find a new streamer to watch!

Christopher “GMHikaru” Nakamura is perhaps an unusual candidate to be among the most viewed Twitch streamers of all time. Rather than streaming video game content, GMHikaru is a chess streamer, grandmaster, and one of the best players in the world. He began streaming on the platform in 2018, but it wasn’t until 2020 that his follower and view counts really began to soar.

With 175 million views in total from 1.9 million followers, people just love to watch GMHikaru play chess. And with a gift like his, who wouldn’t?

29. IzakOOO

Piotr “IzakOOO” Skowyrski is a Polish streamer with a heavy focus on everything Counter-Strike. Years ago, he went pro in both Counter-Strike Source and Global Offensive, and later became a commentator at several Major competitions in the scene.

As described by Sacriel himself, he focuses on “interactive educational content, especially in combat strategy and analysis.” This has manifested itself in several ways over the years, with him hopping between games such as DayZ, Arma 3, Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds, Escape from Tarkov, and Call of Duty: Warzone.

Pokimane had other endeavors that helped her grow, including an ASMR YouTube channel. But it was her involvement with stream team OfflineTV that really sent her brand into the stratosphere. Pokimane was a founding member of OfflineTV, but left in 2023. At that point, she had become a brand of her own and, with 220 million views, remains one of the biggest Twitch streamers on Earth.

Ben “CohhCarnage” Cassell is another of the Twitch OGs. After beginning to stream back in 2013, he has since garnered a dedicated viewership of 1.6 million followers, who account for 223 million views in total.

It’s impossible to tie down CohhCarnage to one particular game. Having streamed for so long as a variety creator, it seems he streams whatever takes his fancy. Having done it so consistently for so long, who can really blame him?

22. Nickmercs

Zack “Asmongold” Hoyt is one of the most prominent Twitch streamers out there right now. So much so, that we were surprised to find he only sits at number 20 on this list.

Asmongold didn’t start streaming on Twitch until 2014, and within a few years had become among the top streamers in the world.

Tyler “loltyler1” Steinkamp is a popular League of Legends streamer boasting 5.3 million followers in total. Between 2016 and 2018, he gained notoriety after being banned from the game after a string of toxic behavior. This only piqued community interest further, and his following exploded after he was unbanned from League of Legends.

In the years since, his streams have continued in the same way. He pretty much only plays League of Legends, with 301 million views since he began, and describes himself as the “most REFORMED player NA,” which is pretty funny.

11. Tfue

  • 310 million views
  • 253 million total hours watched

Turner “Tfue” Tenney has built a massive fanbase of 11.6 million followers by creating great Fortnite content in the right place at the right time. He previously streamed games such as Destiny and H1Z1 but didn’t find nearly the same level of success.

Now, with 310 million views under his belt, Tfue is one of the most successful creators on the platform. When he does stream nowadays, it’s usually Fortnite, but he has become much less consistent in recent times.

Ibai “Ibai” Llanos Garatea owns the third-most-followed channel on Twitch, with 15.4 million followers.

He has been a content creator for G2 Esports, and even co-founded the eSports team KOI alongside ex-footballer Gerard Piqué.

While League of Legends is still present on his channel, much of his content is dedicated to commentating on KOI games across all eSports, including Valorant and Counter-Strike 2. With 359 million views in total, we’d say he’s not doing too badly.

8. Sodapoppin

Chance “Sodapoppin” Morris has longevity on his side, having been a Twitch streamer ever since 2012. In that time, Sodapoppin has undergone many different endeavors, through which his 8.9 million followers have tuned in.

Over the years, he has gone from blackjack streaming to being a part-owner of NRG Esports, popularizing the hit title Among Us, and becoming a new member of the One True King streaming group. It’s been a crazy ride so far, and with 398 million views watched in total, it does not look set to end any time soon.

7. Amouranth

  • 401 million views
  • 122 million total hours watched

Love her or hate her, you can’t deny the impact that Kaitlyn “Amouranth” Siragusa has had on Twitch. With 401 million views, she is by far the most-watched female creator on the platform, having spearheaded what became known as the “Hot Tub Meta,” in which she would stream from the comfort of a hot tub. Good for her, we say!

Now with 6.3 million followers, Amouranth is in part responsible for the existence of the Pools, Hot Tubs, and Beaches category on Twitch, and continues to create a variety of content on numerous other sites.

6. Gaules

Alexandre Borba “Gaules” Chiqueta is the master of identifying and filling a gap in a huge market. He’s a Brazilian streamer, who frequently co-streams competitive Counter-Strike 2 tournaments. As a Portuguese-language streamer, he is by far the biggest creator to do this, and has made himself the go-to channel for Portuguese-speaking Counter-Strike fans.

His numbers are incredibly impressive. He boasts 4.1 million followers, which is less than some of the Twitch streamers lower on this list, but has managed to accumulate 405 million views on his channel. With the popularity of Counter-Strike only growing of late, expect Gaules to grow further in popularity.

5. Lirik

  • 422 million views

Saqib Ali “Lirik” Zahid rose to prominence in the early days of Twitch streamers, with a heavy focus on DayZ, which was immensely popular at the time. As the game’s moment in the mainstream waned, Lirik moved on, evolving to become a variety Twitch streamer. With the benefit of hindsight, this was a shrewd move.

Variety streaming allowed Lirik to build a much more diverse audience and he now holds 3 million followers on his Twitch account. At 422 million views, he remains the 5th-highest-viewed Twitch streamer of all time, and frequently pulls in high viewer counts, regardless of the game.

4. summit1g

Like a few others on this list, Jaryd “summit1g“Lazar made his name as an eSports player in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. He retired from serious competitive play in 2018, but at that point, he had already begun a successful career as a Twitch streamer.

Nowadays, he has mostly left that sort of game behind. Instead, summit1g has established himself as a variety streamer with 6.3 million followers, accounting for a total of 505 million views. As far as the best Twitch streamers go, summit1g stands right near the very top.

With 571 million views on Twitch in total, Michael “Shroud” Grzesiek sits in 2nd place on this list. Shroud has had a crazy list, earning his stripes as a top-tier Counter-Strike: Global Offensive pro, before retiring at age 23 to begin streaming on Twitch.

Like the next person on this list, Shroud moved to Mixer in 2019, signing an exclusivity deal he was quickly freed from when the platform shut down in mid-2020. He returned to Twitch, and has since built a following of 10.8 million followers.

A brief stint as a Valorant professional followed in 2022 with Sentinels, but it was short-lived, and he came back to Twitch, where he continues to be one of the most popular users on the platform.

1. Ninja

  • 572 million views
  • 365 million total hours watched

Richard “Ninja” Blevins is the undoubted King of Twitch. After beginning his career as a Halo 3 eSports player, his popularity truly took off when he picked up Fortnite on Twitch in 2017.

His history with Twitch is a little messy. In August 2019, Ninja left the platform after signing an exclusivity deal with Microsoft’s Mixer, which was intended to be a true competitor to Twitch. This was short-lived, as Mixer eventually shut down in July 2020, and Ninjas was freed from his contractual obligations.

A return to Twitch swiftly followed, and Ninja hasn’t looked back. He’s garnered a community of over 18 million followers, and holds the title for most views on Twitch with a total of 572 million.
