Many Roblox rumors surround supposed prophecies, hoaxes, and conspiracies. Many YouTube accounts create videos generating fake Roblox prophecies as a way to quickly earn viewers. As Roblox caters to a younger demographic who often fall for these fake prophecies; these rumors often result in chaos on the Roblox platform and Roblox-related fan websites.
A notable example was TheC0mmunity creating a rumor around February 2017 about John Doe hacking Roblox accounts on March 18. This rumor, while being proven false, caused chaos in Roblox for the remainder for the time being before March 18, but nothing occurred on that date. Once the John and Jane Doe rumors were proven false, new rumors were started by other Youtubers.
Certain other Roblox YouTubers are criticized for many reasons, such as trolling, clickbaiting, scamming, publishing inappropriate content, and attacking other users. Below are some examples of notorious YouTubers.
RobuxianYouTube is a user known for his clickbait tutorials on free Robux hacks. He has a tendency to lie and spreads multiple prophecies to users. He has also claimed that builderman is evil. Some time in late 2017, he was terminated. However, on February 18, 2018, he returned with a new account called robloxlover69 which he used in order to post inappropriate videos.
In later videos of his, he makes animations in Roblox Studio and has seemingly stopped this type of clickbait behavior.
Dragod was a Roblox YouTuber known for his clickbaiting and fake Robux giveaways. He was one of the people responsible for spreading the June 28, 2017 hacking rumor. His channel is also filled with clickbait titles like 'If you don't buy this item, your account will be deleted', with the video simply being gameplay of Jailbreak. After August 22, 2017, he was inactive for some time, with users thinking that he actually quit YouTube. Their thoughts were false, as he had later started his channel back up.
Sometime after, he started making clickbait Fortnite videos and later deleted them. In some date in 2018, Dragod came back and started making Fortnite and challenge videos instead of Roblox videos. Dragod has changed his YouTube name to The Dragod, and is now currently a vlogger.
He was one of the first people to start free Robux clickbait videos and popularize them. He was also one of the first to start creating mass amounts of Roblox clickbait videos. He is often seen as the cause of all Roblox clickbait videos and believed to have inspired other click baiters like Kazok, NicsterV, ZephPlayz, and others to do clickbait content after seeing the views Dragod received on his clickbait videos.

Julius Cole is the YouTube channel of Julius Coles, the owner of the account JuliusColesV2. He is most known for his Roblox hate videos. In the videos, he wishes for the death of Roblox staff members and users and celebrates the deaths of deceased Roblox staff members, including Roblox co-founder Erik Cassel. He did this because his Roblox accounts were terminated for stealing other people's games and reuploading them as his own, notably 1dev2's Welcome to the Town of Robloxia.
Although he has stopped creating videos on a regular basis, he still uploads them rarely. Instead, he now creates hate videos against other Roblox YouTubers such as InquisitorMaster, greenlegocats123, and Flamingo. He was also known to have defended Lisa Gaming Roblox, an infamous Roblox YouTuber who would create false expose videos on popular Roblox YouTubers.
Lisa Gaming Roblox
Lisa Gaming Roblox was a Roblox YouTuber who would upload "expose" videos. She would say lies about many big Roblox YouTubers including TheLaughingUnicorn, Glofish, legobloxian, and greenlegocats123 to try and trigger their fans and get reactions. The videos were intentionally bad, with overly loud music and poor grammar. Many fans of the targeted YouTubers fell for the videos and began attacking Lisa Gaming Roblox, giving the YouTubers who the videos were targeted at look bad despite never attacking her themselves. Lisa Gaming Roblox would also do things such as online date or have fashion parties in her videos to further the triggering of fanbases.
While some believe she is uploading videos in good faith, it has been confirmed otherwise. In the video, someone friended her and asked her in party chat where she gave a well-worded answer with perfect grammar describing how she made the videos to "make ppl angry" and how she thinks it's "fun getting hate". She continues to receive praise and defense from those who have not seen or do not believe her saying she is a troll, including praise and defense from Julius Cole. Her channel has since been terminated by YouTube for violating community guidelines strikes, most likely for spreading lies about other YouTubers. She has created a new channel called Hanako Playz.
