According to Google data, Ninja, who is also known as Tyler Blevins, was the most searched for e-sports gamer in the world in August.
His position is surprising given the dominance of South Korean class of gamers in the e-sports world – especially when it comes to the hugely popular battle royale title Fortnite. But it appears Ninja is a global star who is a hit in the US and Europe as well as the Far East.
