Valkyrae boasts a comparatively high 45% female viewers when compared to most other female streamers. She further discussed the topic when she joined the virtual creator, Code Miko, on a stream. Code Miko’s appearance may seem quite surprising to those who have not watched her streams before.

She is a YouTuber who calls herself ‘The Technician’. What viewers can see on stream is actually a virtual avatar that emulates her movements and uses the Unreal Engine software. Miko has gone on to amass a respectable following of over 300,000 subscribers.

This leaves fans to wonder how Valkyrae has garnered such an evenly distributed fanbase in terms of YouTube viewers compared to her female colleagues. However, Valkyrae attributes this success to playing with Corpse Husband and Sykkuno. Rae explains, “I think that’s where the majority of my female audience found me was through them.”

Rae is obviously close to both aforementioned streamers. She even had the opportunity to feature in the video of Corpse’s song DAYWALKER! alongside Machine Gun Kelly. This impressive stat regarding her male viewers goes on to showcase the power of collaboration on social media.

Valkyrae’s immense success on social media is inspiring for both male and female creators alike. The streamer has even gone on to become a co-owner of the Esports organization 100 Thieves, alongside Courage and Nickmercs.
