MrBeast vs PewDiePie- Who is the real king of YouTube?

No one will ever deny that both MrBeast and PewDiePie are outright legends of YouTube. PewDiePie was the most subscribed YouTuber on the planet with his hilarious gaming videos while MrBeast has been creating beautiful content, and helping people financially for years.

Although these guys are one of the most influential people the world has ever seen, have you ever wondered who is the real king of YouTube? In this article, we will cover exactly that as we compare two of the biggest YouTubers of all time.

Disclaimer: This article does not aim to create any disparity or conflict among the fans of the creators, the writer being one of them. The writer truly respects both of these creators, and the main motivation behind this article lies in that. Thus, it is an entirely subjective article made to have a healthy discussion about the two legends of YouTube.

MrBeast vs PewDiePie- Basic overview

MrBeast had dethroned PewDiePie to become the most subscribed solo YouTuber on the planet in late 2022. Currently, MrBeast has 144 million subscribers on his YouTube channel while PewDiePie has 111 million. It is unfathomable to grasp the amount of hard work both of these creators had to go through, to reach this level.

MrBeast and PewDiePie are great friends in real life, where the former is a big fan of the latter. He started his career after being inspired by PewDiePie and made tons of videos related to him. Some of his most famous videos like  “Donating $10000 To Pewdiepie” are still fan favorites.

Thus, as you move forward in this article, you will see that it is divided into four categories, with who wins it:

  1. Entertainment
  2. Upload Frequency
  3. Charity
  4. Memorable moments

Entertainment- MrBeast

To start, it was one of the hardest decisions to choose between these two legends based on entertainment. However, considering PewDiePie considers himself retired now as he has settled in Japan with his beautiful family, he has made YouTube secondary. We as fans are extremely happy for him and Marzia and wish them a very happy life together, while thanking him for all the memories throughout the years.

MrBeast on the other hand, has completely made YouTube his life. He is putting out highly entertaining content week in and week out. Most of his videos break the 100 million mark in views quite easily, showcasing their quality. MrBeast has also donated enormous amounts of money to people in need, all for the sake of our entertainment. Anyone can take this round, but MrBeast deserves it.

Upload Frequency- PewDiePie

PewDiePie takes this round as he has a much higher upload frequency than MrBeast. In MrBeast’s defense, he has very high production qualities in his videos and runs several channels. However, we are just discussing their main channels and raw upload frequency.

Practically it is highly unlikely for MrBeast to have a very high upload frequency while maintaining the same production quality as they take a lot of money and time to make. Whereas, PewDiePie is just chilling in Japan, retired from YouTube, and just uploading raw content for fun. Therefore, as per upload frequency, PewDiePie takes the win.

Charity- MrBeast

Although PewDiePie has donated a lot to charity, it is of no debate that MrBeast is the winner of this round. MrBeast’s entire online identity is based on his beautiful nature of helping and donating money to people in need. He has spent millions if not billions of dollars for the betterment of people in one way or the other. Recently he helped 1000 blind people to see for the first time, and honestly, it was the moment when everybody accepted that MrBeast is a gem to society. He also once adopted every single dog from a shelter.

Memorable moments- PewDiePie

Even though MrBeast has established himself as a legend on YouTube, this round has to go to PewDiePie. Even MrBeast himself was inspired by him. PewDiePie held the title of the most subscribed entity on YouTube for years before he conflicted with T-Series and got dethroned by them. His horror gaming videos from the early 2010s and funny Minecraft montages will never be forgotten. PewDiePie has given uncountable memes, and highly entertaining videos to the community for years. Therefore, everyone is happy that now he has everything he ever wished for, and is settled with his family.

MrBeast vs PewDiePie- Conclusion

Honestly, it is practically impossible to compare these two legends of the world. Not only they have been the reason for smiles in millions of households all around the world, but they have also given irreplaceable memories. Throughout the years, based on their immense hard work, they are now icons of the world, not just YouTube.

However, for the sake of the article, the final verdict is:

King of YouTube in 2023: MrBeast

King of YouTube of all time/overall: PewDiePie
