Let’s talk about Rocket League YouTubers. If you want to step up your game in Rocket League, you’ll want to soak up some content. If you’re itching to play a match or two while deserted in an isolated employee break room, unwinding to some RL humor eases the suffering.
Regardless of niche, RL content creators share a uniform goal. We’re here to take the edge off your grind.
Still, like many of you, I have a love/hate relationship with YouTube. On one hand, an awesome content creator is the lifeblood of modern entertainment. Good content helps hobbies thrive. On the other hand, shuffling through an endless stream of clickbait is the epitome of a miserable time.
You know what I’m talking about:
“And here’s a chart with low subscription numbers. Drop a sub if you don’t want to fall victim to some obscure disease your grandmother invented in an ancient Myspace chain mail.”
Anyway, I’d be lying if I told you I didn’t enjoy YouTube. Despite its flaws, YouTube is a massive leap forward in human entertainment.
My pen-and-paper format sheds insight. YouTube offers valuable entertainment and video footage.
Today, I’d like to filter out the obnoxious screams of an overzealous squeaker. Let’s filter out the clueless dude who downloaded RL yesterday. Today, we’re tackling the 20 BEST Rocket League YouTubers.
Luckily, Rocket League content creators have cemented a surprisingly sophisticated and nuanced community. We’ve woven a tapestry of hyper-niche, ultra-focused content that’s frankly unparalleled by most gaming communities. You’re in for a treat!
Let’s kick off with the internet’s most respected Rocket League YouTuber. Sunless is the father of quality Rocket League content. Before we had the learning tools that exist today, Sunless blazed a trail of hard work, dedication, and quality content.
His tutorial series “Why You Suck At Rocket League” is still the most shared RL series on the web. It speaks volumes about his channel. He produced those videos in 2017.
The Sunless brand stands unparalleled. When clicking into a video, we know to expect a fresh brew of exquisite tea. He greets us with a conversational tone. He’s humble. His sense of humor doesn’t come at anyone’s expense. Everyone is welcome.
SunlessKhan’s channel expresses top-notch video editing skills. The action feels steady. His unrelenting charisma radiates endless entertainment. He does his research before gushing about his favorite pro players. Sunless is a YouTube mastermind.
I’ve concluded that Thanovic is the best YouTube coach this world has to offer. The man could articulate more RL content in a bead of sweat than most creators publish in their entire lives. When it comes to description, his videos leave no stone unturned.
Thanovic also speaks in a comforting voice with resounding clarity. He leaves bold, legible text on-screen to help guide the viewer through transitions, and his camera and audio quality are leagues above most other RL Youtubers.
We’re pretty lucky to have this legend in our ranks. His camera work is robust enough to produce an Avengers film. His graphic editing talent could clear the blotches from Ariana Grande’s last photoshoot. He could have been a spokesman for Microsoft press conferences.
But in this timeline, he delivers top-quality RL tutorials. Whether you’re on the hunt for a simple guide or a complete synopsis of on-field rotations, nobody nails the delivery like Thanovic.
Plus he’s ex-Pulse Clan. So he’s flaunting incredible mechanical skill to back up his claims.
Rocket Sledge is a man who isn’t afraid to do his research. He attracts a friendly audience – despite raking in over 38,000 career demolitions in online matches.
That ranks him in the top 20 demo hunters worldwide. Heck, his early demo research guided every player on that leaderboard.
I had the pleasure of interviewing Rocket Sledge in all his Canadian glory. He’s likely the last major RL content creator to spearhead every aspect of his channel alone.
Sledge revels in a heavy workload. He cuts each video with precision and care.
Honestly, his hands-on approach gives him an edge. He’s among the most well-connected YouTubers in the Rocket League space. He’s contacted giants in the trading scene, such as sanctioned middlemen. He’s an active member of the custom bot development team.
Sledge even managed to play a few games with Terry Crews!
I’ve got to show our pasty boy some love.
Lethamyr is an unscripted ‘Let’s Play’ style influencer. He basically grabs some friends and whips out his best custom mutator settings.
He’ll laugh up a storm and share his video spotlight with his longest-standing community supporters.
Leth secured a solid niche in the modding community. He dumps hundreds of hours into producing custom training maps and gimmick courses.
From the get-go, we know we’re checking out great content. Lethamyr blasts a quality intro sequence. It sends an immediate message to us: Budget is no object.
Lethamyr single-handedly publishes over half of the functional RL workshop maps in existence. I can’t stress these modding talents enough: Lethamyr literally created RL skeeball and mini-golf. And it’s all available to help you sharpen your skills in the most enjoyable way fathomable.
Still not enough?
Leth is a retired RLCS pro who played multiple seasons on the roster for Ghost. He also coached MousEsports before they disbanded.
In terms of sheer skill, Leth resides along the best YouTube content creators. He keeps a consistent uploading schedule, too.
Psyonix should hire this man.
Sir Classy has a distinguished way of speaking. If you run into him at the gas station, you might even label him as a “bro-chad” or whatever term you use for ‘meathead’ in your social group.
When I first laid eyes upon Sir Classy’s photo, I convinced myself he was the human incarnation of a Monster energy drink. Don’t be fooled.
This man is a genius. He’s thorough. He can clearly remember the struggles he had to overcome to get to where he is. He can express his insight in a fun and engaging way that other RL content creators can only dream of delivering.
Never in my life did I expect to land a flip reset, but after a single view and a few hours of practice: Sir Classy turned me from an absolute dunce to a capable rocketeer.
Sir Classy is hilarious. He’s a pretty talented freestyler, too. Sure, there are plenty of tutorials on YouTube. If I see Classy has something posted, I insta-click. He makes learning enjoyable.
Frowzy Squirrel is a highly-specialized comedian who creates Ryan George style skits.
At first glance, Frowzy’s channel might seem like watching a random dude arguing with himself… and it is.
But his cutting skills and camera angles are artfully precise. Not to mention, Frowzy can deliver jokes better than an A-list actors. His face is affable and expressive.
If you’re looking for a channel that pokes fun at Rocket League culture, or just a unique take on how one of our own views the RL community, Frowzy is your guy. Frowzy is a comedic prodigy.
Frowzy may be newer than the other featured channels here, but I have no doubt in my mind that he’ll surpass many of the YouTubers on this list as time marches onward.
Jon isn’t exceptionally good at Rocket League. He doesn’t post tutorials. He doesn’t host massive tournaments or develop any groundbreaking ideas. Still, the man is worth $1.2 million dollars. He was also the first Rocket League YouTuber to break one million subscribers.
For the longest time, I resisted Jon Sandman. I’m glad I finally gave in.
This guy is bursting at the seams with energy. Instead of freestyling on-screen, we hear him freestyling a hilarious string of jokes. The guy is armed to the teeth with snappy quips. He’s always smiling, even when the scoreboard reads a nasty 7-1 Brazil against him.
I’ve grown to respect Jon’s personality. Just look at him. He’s a total goof-ball. Despite YouTube comment sections being filled to the brim with accusations of Jon being carried by pros, he uploads daily. Honestly, even if he was carried, how many pros have you played with? Jon Sandman has played with most.
Maybe someday he’ll be crowned as the first Plat to play in RLCS… No wait, Musty already claimed that title.
Jon Sandman secured a pretty solid niche in blind trading and RL cosmetics. He can decorate some pretty clean presets, if nothing else.
There’s more than one John floating around in these waters. This English commentator has been the premier 1v1 tournament organizer for professional RL players. His commentary is quick, full of depth and analysis, and great for keeping tension high. His ‘Salt Mine’ broadcasts will jostle you toward the edge of your seat. We’re talking about the level of quality you can expect from ESPN broadcasts.
If RLCS isn’t your thing, try watching some 1v1’s on Johnny’s channel. The games feel more engaging with the camera only snapping between two players. JohnnyBoi_i is also full of powerful information that you can take with you on the virtual field.
There’s a reason Psyonix hired him to commentate on RLCS. He’s brisk, emotional, informative, and clever. The guy is a natural.
Cbell’s greatest strength is that he’s always uploading content on the skills that matter. Sure, it might feel good to land a triple flip reset. Without solid game sense, you’ll never get the chance.
Cbell has the instincts of a coach coursing through his veins. Most YouTubers will end a video with a vague ‘just get out there and practice!’ CBell doesn’t falter, he’s full of great ideas for training exercises. After all, it’s better to know a training routine than to sit around twirling your thumbs, isn’t it?
His entertainment content is pretty well-crafted, too. The man isn’t short on innovation. He’ll play on an account that’s his literal phone number and clip the most memorable phone conversations…. Then he takes everything a step further by crafting a bingo card based on those conversations.
Mizu is a fresh face in the Rocket League YouTuber scene. He’s a full-time streamer who somehow gained traction on Facebook, of all places.
But I can tell you right now that Mizu’s here to stay. He’s an active RLCS bubble player, top 100 in 1v1’s, and dedicated to the RL grind.
He’s developed a knack for creating speedy tutorial videos. He’s a smart and articulate man! Even if you’re idly watching him push through comp 1’s, he’s spewing useful game sense info with the delicacy of a seasoned auctioneer.
But what I like most about Mizu is that he’s bringing light to the small, powerful RL workshop map speedrunning community. He’s cleared Speed Jump: Rings 3 at 100% in 2 minutes and 47 seconds. I interviewed him about speedrunning to help drum up hype. He’s a funny guy!
Sometimes we just want to watch beautiful clips of car soccer. The type of playbook clips that shouldn’t be humanly possible.
Sometimes we want to sit there awestruck, wondering if we’re playing the same game as the freestyler we’re watching. Deep down, we’re all masochists.
Well, no RL freestyler is more experienced than JZR. He’s the father of freestyling, and almost always the beacon of inspiration for other freestyling YouTubers spanning the globe.
He’s an OG – active from community feedback forums predating Rocket League entirely. JZR uploaded videos back in the SARPBC days.
JZR can showcase Rocket League’s limitless skill ceiling in ways that ooze with imagination.
Sure, freestylers like Forky and Breezi are a little nuttier, but they don’t upload often. JZR, on the other hand, can consistently cook up a montage that’ll render you speechless. I rated him as my #1 in a post about top RL freestylers.
Sometimes I wonder if Evample learned to play Rocket League with a busted controller. His finger never abandons the powerslide button.
The result is a wildly unique and loose playstyle that’s unmatched by any other YouTuber. He’s like the Jimi Hendrix of RL. If you’re looking for inspirational clips, Evample is your guy. If you want to spend a few hours feeling bad about your own Rocket League capabilities, he’ll probably succeed in that department, too.
But he’ll do it with the flair of complete and utter Zen. Evample is the embodiment of your favorite Lo-Fi playlist jamming out to some good old fashioned car-soccer.
While Rizzo might not edge out the personality of Jon Sandman, he’s got plenty to go around. He’s always playing with his buddy Sizz. As you watch his channel, you can feel the chemistry between the two blossoming into the type of thing we normies pray for after every lost solo que match.
You’ll feel like you’re growing alongside them. You’ll feel like you’re building a trustworthy bond with Rizzo. It’s super rewarding.
They’re loud and boisterous. They aren’t censoring themselves or putting on a pretty PR image. Rizzo and Sizz are just that: Rizzo and Sizz.
Plus Rizzo is a retired pro, a well-decorated one. During his time with G2, you could always expect to see his team land in the quarter finals at every event.
So, if you’re looking for a funny video from one of the best players in the world, Rizzo won’t disappoint. Be prepared to see a few corny impersonations. It’s part of his charm.
Mertzy has an innate sense of dry sarcasm. He isn’t offensive or rude. He parades a personality reminiscent of Jim from The Office. Pairing his voice with prank videos is like pairing steak with a wildly overpriced wine.
One day, you might catch yourself watching him disguised as another Youtuber – thrashing their loyal fans. In another video, you’ll see him nonchalantly draining the boost reservoirs of pro players in a 1v1 challenge.
Sometimes he just clips a bunch of his most painful missed shots. They’re some of his most popular videos.
My favorite thing about Mertzy is his honesty. If he won a tournament because a couple pros carried him, he’ll tell you. He admits his faults. Mertzy has no issues exercising humility. It defines his online persona.
Also, he gets an A+ for branding. Mertzy has the second most distinguished preset in Rocket League.
Normally, I cringe to see more “Road to SSL” video series uploaded to YouTube.
Still, when I heard Rocketeers raving about the new “Road to SSL Without Mechanics,” I was intrigued. Believe it or not, Flakes delivered.
He cleared Champ 2 without plunging for an aerial. He jostled every rank below it with point-blank goals and no shadow defense.
And he repeated this process in both competitive 1’s and comp 2’s.
Flakes secured a niche in roasting fans’ 1v1 replay footage. He’s a ruthless human being. But it’s hard for me to ignore that a large percentage of RL’s install base responds well to harsh coaching.
Flakes is a mainstay in professional 1v1 show matches. He’s arguably the best 1’s player in the world. His game sense is nothing short of astounding. Check him out!
I poke a lot of fun at Musty, but I can’t deny he’s a talented creator. He’s got the rare gift of triple threat. He’s talented enough to be a pro, consistently uploading entertaining content, and has a standout personality.
Even if half of his edits reek of pogger spam, it gives him a distinguished style that remains light-hearted and maintains widespread appeal.
Musty even beat Sunless to one million subscribers despite his late start. He drops videos like clockwork, and it’s honestly pretty impressive.
Musty gained his popularity by posting clips of his special flick on Reddit. If you haven’t heard of a Musty Flick by now, you’ve probably been living under a rock with Patrick Star.
Don’t underestimate the value of quantity. One Piece is the most popular anime on the planet because it’s relaxing to binge for hours. It feels good to slouch back and smash the resume button without toiling through different channels or shuffling through hundreds of recycled ideas with different brand labels.
The fact that he subbed for NRG with his plate stuffed as a full-time content creator speaks volumes about his unwavering dedication. Still, the kid’s got elephant ears.
At least his YouTube money bought him a Tesla.
Love you, Musty.
With an online handle like SquishyMuffinz, you know you’ve got to have skills to avoid absorbing the flames of vocal comms in multiplayer games.
In the right hands, an innocent name like “Squishy” becomes the ultimate troll bait.
Well, this Canadian YouTuber is so talented at Rocket League that he confidently shot down TSM’s proposal to go pro. Why? They wanted him to play with Dappur and other big early names… and he yearned to play with his boys Torment and Gimmick.
Sure enough, Cloud9 picked him up with his teammates of choice. And, to nobody’s surprise, he conquered an RLCS champion title shortly after.
But Squishy is more than another pro player. He’s iconic. He’s a daredevil, a Rocket League demi-god. When everyone spouted mantras about how unviable ceiling shots felt at RLCS level, Squishy turned around and scored one to seal a critical match at LAN.
When everyone ignored the weirdo content creator chaining wavedashes on the wall, Squishy adopted it and shaped a new RLCS metagame.
Virge is the top coach for building practical skills. He transcends our carnal desires to become mindless freestylers and feeds us a healthy diet of science and game sense.
He busts popular RL myths like how flips affect the angle of a shot.
He tells you how to put more mass and power into the ball, and gives you a practical training routine that guarantees results.
I mean, the man coached Esport titan orgs like Dignitas and Complexity. He’s played his fair share of show matches.
The fact he’s a success story despite dodging hot keyword queries like the newest wonky flicks and clickbait promises speaks volumes about his channel and his character.
If you’re hunting for weekly updates to your warmup routine or develop a more intimate relationship with you car control, Virge delivers.
After raking in 120,000 career demolitions, it’s only natural that you’ll uncover a goldmine of toxic responses from your opponents.
And, honestly, Woody curates the footage well. He has a keen sense of humor. He’ll spit out silly intro segments about “Salt Mine” branding, or ultra-professional mock PSA’s.
I always cackle at how coy he plays in chat exchanges. Especially when an opponent tries to tell him that demos are perilous positioning errors. As he flips the scoreboard, he pesters his unsolicited coaches for more advice.
It’s a great time.
Woody hosts a demo tutorial series for anyone itching to transform their most toxic opponents into a 20-point ‘Executioner’ trophy by the end of a match.
He’s a true monster. If the demo streaks didn’t give that away, maybe the fact that he only eats plain burgers will.
Lawler is another RLCS caster who specializes in analysis. He joined the circuit on June 18th, 2018.
He hosts a podcast titled “Rocket Talk,” which is brimming with juicy Esport gossip and news. Lawler catches wind of roster changes, player disagreements, org withdrawals, and everything in between at lightning speed.
But you’ll find he’s way more credible than your average leaker who claims his uncle works at Nintendo or whatever.
Lawler boasts an uncanny knack for breaking down player performances. He’s an exceptional outlet for showcasing highlight reels. And you better believe he’s uploading his sage-like wisdom to YouTube.
I love streaming his long format videos when fiddling around in training. The time flies by, and I can keep my head in the proper space for fostering genuine improvement.
Anyway, that’s my list of the best Rocket League influencers. We’ve got an outstanding crew. We’ll bleed your free time dry for months – if you let us.
Remember: You can improve your own game by simply visualizing the possibilities. You can walk away feeling refreshed, inspired, invigorated, and more aware of your limitations.
Seeing is believing.
Are there any Youtubers I missed? Are you an aspiring content creator yourself? Drop a follow on social and let me get to know you a bit! Or don’t… I’ll live either way. Much love!
And as always… Thank you for reading!
