Ninja is an American Twitch streamer, YouTuber, and professional gamer who goes by the online moniker Richard Tyler Blevins. Blevins got his start broadcasting by joining numerous esports teams in competitive Halo 3 play, and he grew in popularity as he began playing Fortnite Battle Royale in late 2017.
In 2009, Blevins began playing Halo 3 professionally. In 2011, Blevins started streaming. In 2017, he joined Luminosity Gaming as a Halo player, then moved on to H1Z1, and finally PUBG, where he won the PUBG Gamescom Invitational Squads classification in August 2017. Shortly after the PUBG Gamescom Invitational, Blevins began broadcasting the freshly launched Fortnite Battle Royale. Over the late 2017/early 2018 timeframe, his audience began to rise in tandem with the game’s popularity.
While playing Fortnite alongside Drake, Travis Scott, and JuJu Smith-Schuster in March 2018, Blevins established the Twitch record for the biggest concurrent viewership on an individual stream, with 635,000 viewers. Epic Games, the creators of Fortnite, were inspired by this broadcast to hold a philanthropic pro-am tournament in Fortnite in June of that year, with prominent streamers like Blevins partnered with famous celebrities; Blevins won the event with electronic artist Marshmello. During his event Ninja Vegas 2018, in April 2018, he broke his own viewing record, attracting a total of 667,000 live viewers.
In June 2018, Blevins teamed with Red Bull Esports and organised an unique Fortnite tournament in Chicago, the Red Bull Rise Till Dawn, where players could challenge him. Blevins was freed from his exclusive agreement due to Mixer’s closure in July 2020, allowing him to stream on other platforms. Blevins announced his return to Twitch broadcasting on September 10, 2020, after securing an exclusive multiyear agreement, and broadcasted on the platform the same day.
Blevins has over 24 million YouTube followers as of April 2021, in addition to a huge amount of Twitch and Mixer users. He was earning over $500,000 per month from broadcasting Fortnite at the time, and he attributes this to the game’s free-to-play economic model.
