The Legend of Zelda is one of the biggest gaming franchises.

At the time of writing, there are about 30 The Legend of Zelda games, and most are absolutely fantastic.

Thanks to the franchise’s massive popularity, there’s an army of content creators constantly giving all of these titles love – and trying to unearth all of the secrets in these digital worlds.

These are 10 amazing Zelda content creators to check out if you want to dive deep into the world of Hyrule.


10. GameSpot

Usually I try to focus on non-corporate channels when writing these rankings – but I had to make an exception for GameSpot’s Breath of the Wild content.

GameSpot’s Max Blumenthal has spent the last two years pumping out more BOTW videos than I can keep up with.

So far, they’ve released over 40 BOTW videos. Around half of them belong to the Things You Didn’t Know in Zelda BOTW series, where Max looks at the latest secrets, exploits, and glitches.

It’s impressive how Max keeps coming up with 20+ more interesting things to share with the community every couple weeks. That’s what I call hard work.

They also have a ton of older BOTW content from around the time the game came out that’s still worth watching today.


9. ChuggaConroy (& TheRunawayGuys)

ChuggaConroy is one of the pioneers of YouTube gaming.

He’s been doing Let’s Plays and other gaming content for almost 15 years now, and in this time, he’s tackled nearly every Zelda game you can think of.

While his solo series like Phantom Hourglass and Skyward Sword are a fantastic way to revisit these games, it’s his collab content with TheRunawayGuys that I want to highlight here.

Watching ChuggaConroy, NintendoCapriSun, and ProtonJon playing underrated co-op gems like Triforce Heroes and Four Swords Adventures is extremely fun.


8. Rinkuto

My favorite type of Zelda content is geeky videos where fans piece together the lore of the series and even come up with their own theories.

Rinkuto is unique among Zelda lore/theory content creators on this ranking because his videos are all in French.

I know reading subtitles is a turn-off for some, but I consider it a feature. It makes the stories of Hyrule feel a lot more exotic – like they come from a distant land – and I love that.

You can start with his Breath of the Wild lore analysis videos, then move on to theorizing about Tears of the Kingdom from a narrative perspective.


7. QuinBoBin

If you’re looking for something to pick up your spirits after a hard day at work or at school, QuinBoBin won’t disappoint.

He’s a quirky, upbeat content creator whose eclectic editing and zany sense of humor can turn any video into the funniest thing you’ve ever watched.

His Wind Waker videos are among my favorites. They look at one of the best games in Zelda history from many new perspectives I’d never even considered.

Some recent hits to get you started include the Skyward Sword Boss Rush and making Twilight Princess as hard as possible with community-chosen handicaps.


6. Zelda Master

Here’s one for the real hardcore Zelda fans.

Zelda Master is run by Luke, a massive Legend of Zelda nerd that turned his passion into a full-time job. He puts a lot of thought into his videos, which are full of knowledge.

You can find a playthrough of almost every Zelda game on his channel – barring some pariahs like Zelda II: The Adventure of Link.

That means you can watch a full playthrough of the original NES The Legend of Zelda, then turn around and check out something more recent like Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity.

He also posts excellent Zelda theories, in-depth analyses of each game, and fun challenges like clearing BOTW with Amiibo items exclusively.


5. MajorLink

My Legend of Zelda journey began one fateful Christmas when I hooked up my brand-new N64, put in the Ocarina of Time cartridge, and marveled at the game’s opening cinematic.

It was the single most epic thing I’d seen in my life.

Creator MajorLink takes inspiration from these unforgettable gaming moments to create his own Legend of Zelda animations in Unreal Engine.

His Ocarina of Time Remakes are the stuff dreams are made of. They’re beautiful, high-quality animations that remind me of how I felt when I saw the original low-poly cutscenes.

More recently, he’s been working on The Legend of Zelda: Hero’s Purpose – a series following the adventures of the Hero of Time after the events of Majora’s Mask.

It’s almost three hours of footage by now, and more episodes are incoming, so keep an eye on MajorLink.


4. Croton

One of the most helpful series I watched back when I was playing through Breath of the Wild for the first time was Stats of the Wild by Croton.

It helped me understand the incomprehensible and badly-explained stats in Nintendo’s open-world masterpiece, ultimately making me a better player.

I’ve kept watching Croton because I like his charismatic personality and because he loves Breath of the Wild to bits.

Some of his best content includes playthroughs of famous mods like Second Wind and Relics of the Past, challenge runs, and – more recently – keeping up the hype around Tears of the Kingdom.


3. Monster Maze

Monster Maze is a game analysis channel that’s risen to fame thanks to its high-quality content and superb video editing.

You may know them from their hit nature documentary: Life as a Bokoblin.

Their content is varied, ranging from Zelda theories to level design analysis.

Their idea about the Minish finally returning for Tears of the Kingdom has me hyped for that game.

However, my favorite has to be the long-form content like The Evolution of Hyrule, where they review the kingdom’s history from a geographic and sociological perspective.


2. PointCrow

With 1,33M subscribers on his YouTube channel, PointCrow is the biggest creator on the ranking.

He’s amassed this massive audience by crafting videos that are not only high-quality but incredibly creative. It’s the kind of stuff you can’t help but want to click on.

A great example is the series of Zelda videos where he plays Breath of the Wild with a dance pad instead of a controller. As someone who can barely handle the Nintendo Switch’s control scheme, I had to watch this.

Other, slightly less crazy content includes experiments like making BOTW multiplayer with mods or trying to play the game blindfolded.

He’s charismatic, upbeat, and a bit of a comedic genius – so check him out!


1. Zeltik

Video game scholars out there who’re interested in learning the secrets of Hyrule’s history should start their search on Zeltik’s YouTube channel.

This guy has a theory or explanation for just about any question you may have.

You didn’t get Skyward Sword’s story? He’ll explain it to you.

Is Breath of the Wild a simulation? There’s a video for that.

You can click on any random video on his channel, and chances are you’ll walk away with a lot of new Zelda knowledge you didn’t even know existed.

Lately, most of his content has revolved around trying to wring out as much information from the Tears of the Kingdoms trailers as possible. Check that out if you can’t wait either!
