Felix Arvid Ulf Kjellberg, better known as PewDiePie, is an Swedish YouTube creator known for his Let's Play-style content of horror games. He is the current most subscribed channel on Youtube[1] and is closely associated with Jacksepticeye, Cryaotic and Markiplier.


The Felix Kjellberg tag on AO3 mainly appears on fic about Jacksepticeye and Markiplier, rather than fic focusing on PewDiePie himself. The most popular ship for him is with his wife Marzia Bisognin, although it's also popular to ship him with Jacksepticeye and Cryaotic.

On Wattpad, as is typical of the RPF fandoms on that site, Reader-Insert and OC fic are incredibly popular, but there is an interesting trend on Wattpad of fanfiction where the reader or an OC is adopted by Felix and Marzia.[2] Like on AO3, other Youtubers such as Jacksepticeye, Cryaotic and Markiplier also feature in fanfic about Felix.


As one of (if not the) YouTube most successful Youtubers (based on the number if his subscribers), PewDiePie was subject of widely publicized controversial in main stream media: In September 2017, he used a racial slur during a live stream Sep 11, 2017[3] for which he later apologized[4].

In early 2017, due to the media coverage and outrage, Disney ended a partnership with him due to video uploaded by him that contained anti-semitic content.[5]

In December 2018 he recommended a Youtube Channel that reportedly again promotes anti-semitic content.[6]


PewDiePie raised $1M for charities like the World Wildlife Fund , St. Jude, Save the Children, and Charity: Water according to Forbes Magazine.[7]
