CoryxKenshin is an American YouTube personality, vlogger, Let's Play commentator, comedian, and charity fundraiser. His real name is Cory Devante Williams. Since starting his channel on April 26, 2009, CoryxKenshin has so far received more than 3 billion views and has accumulated over 6.8 million subscribers. With a unique approach to gameplay, and a quirky, yet refreshingly clean sense of humour, CoryxKenshin seems to have garnered a loyal following despite Let's Play Commentary being one of the most common types of YouTube videos out there. He calls his fans 'samurai', always ending his videos with the outtro, “Hopefully you guys enjoyed it. If you did, be sure to S-S-S-S-SAMURAI slice that like button. Subscribe today to join the samurai. and until next time my brothers and sisters.” He excels in survival horrors and action video games, and while he specializes in indie games, his all-time favourite game series is 'Halo'. He is equally active on other social-media platforms, such as Twitter and Instagram.

    Why did CoryxKenshin leave YouTube for nine months in 2019?

    CoryxKenshin took break from YouTube in 2019 for much needed rest and relaxation. During his hiatus, he went to Japan, New York and to other places.

Career

The first video CoryxKenshin ever uploaded was on May 25, 2009, at the age of 16, where he talked about girls, dating, and the movie Hitch. In the beginning of his stint on YouTube, he was primarily a vlogger. He focused his content on his school life and then when he was in college, on that, often editing in snippets of videos of himself and his friends. He posted videos once or twice a week, which hasn't changed much since then. Sometimes they become even more sporadic than that. He took a break from YouTube in late 2011, returning in April, 2013.

White Finger, a short survival horror/slasher, is the first game he recorded himself playing in October, 2013. The first game series he did was on Super Punch Out', a 1994 sports game. In 2015, fellow YouTuber, Caillou Pettis, helped him get verified on YouTube. On July 6, 2017, CoryxKenshin posted the video, Try Not To Laugh Challenge.. TEARS FAM.. TEARS; the video is his most popular video so far and has over 14 million views.

CoryxKenshin is deeply religious and often adds Bible verses at the end of his videos. He never curses or swears in his videos, something that makes him stand out among the other Let's Play commentators. Answering a question from one of his audience members on whether he curses and then edits them out, he once said, “No ... because I don't curse in real life, so why would I curse in YouTube video?”.

CoryxKenshin regards NDTitanLady (Natalie Duran) as his inspiration for joining YouTube. He is also friends with famous YouTubers, such as, Muyskerm, Yamimash, LordMinion777, Jacksepticeye, TearofGrace, BangBangBrandon, and POiiSED among others, and has collaborated with a few of them.
