Ninja, real name Richard Tyler Blevins, is an American steamer and professional gamer who first became popular for competing in eSports games for Halo 3.

As of May 2020, Ninja has over 14 million followers making him the most-followed channel on the platform.
Unfortunately, Ninja left Twitch in August 2019 to stream exclusively on Microsoft’s own platform Mixer. With the service closing in July 2020, Ninja may return to streaming on his Twitch platform almost a year after retiring from it.
