While the Fortnite Icon Series has rewards many of the worlds top streamers with their very own skin in their likeness (such as Ninja, Loserfruit, and Lazarbeam) some Fortnite content creators seem to be left on the shelf when it comes to their very own doppelganger cosmetics.

Not only is it a huge honour to be recognised by Epic Games in this way, but fans are always hyped when their fave streamer finally gets a skin they can purchase and wear too.

There are plenty of household name streamers, YouTubers, and content creators whose fanbases think they deserve a skin in Fortnite Battle Royale.

The 34-year-old American streamer is well-known for his Fortnite streaming and charity work, most notably raising more than $3M for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital since 2018. 

He also broke the Fortnite world record for vehicle trick points with the Quadcrasher (a score of 49,256,200) in 2018, and cemented his place as a FN streamer.

With 4.4M followers on Twitch, and with all his charitable donations, there isn't anyone more deserving of a Fortnite skin than DrLupo.

Tfue has consistently pulled numbers on his Twitch streams playing Fortnite, and even though his relationship with the game is tumultuous as best, he still deserves a Fortnite skin.

While fans may joke that he already resembles "Jonesy", a character in the game, his fans would love to see him immortalised with a Fortnite Icon Series skin.

TimTheTatMan is known for his hilarious reactions on stream, and his entertaining Fortnite streams earned him millions of fans. His fanbase exploded in 2018 when he started streaming the Epic Games battle royale regularly and became synonymous with funny gameplay videos.

Another streamer who became one of Fortnite’s top streamers during 2018, and is now a huge streaming superstar who totally deserves a skin of his very own, for him and his 2.1M Twitch followers to enjoy.

Bugha is a Fortnite World Cup winner, and though he’s more of a pro player than a streamer, celebrating his success with a skin would surely memorialise his achievements.

Nicholas "NickEh30" Amyoony

NickEh30 rose to Fortnite fame on YouTube, but was one of the first to start the trend of moving exclusively to Twitch. The Canadian is still one of the most-watched streamers today, and is always family-friendly.

The wunderkind of Fortnite, the young prodigy Myth started early at just 18 years old. Known for cranking 90s and joking around, he’s definitely in the running for a Fortnite skin of his own.

Myth always wore the Skull Trooper skin, so a customised version of that would be perfect. 

Nick “Nickmercs” Kolcheff

Nickmercs has been streaming Fortnite since time immemorial and is known for his controller gameplay, whereas most players prefer keyboard and mouse. A Nickmercs skin complete with a controller would be the ideal way to design his Fortnite Icon Series skin.

Describing his YouTube channel as “pro level gameplay” Sypher PK is known for his high eliminations in Fortnite, and educational videos. He’s been part of the scene for so long, it’d be crazy not to give him his very own Fortnite skin at some point.

Elliott "Muselk" Watkins
