Tyler Ninja Blevins and Michael Shroud Grzesiek are perhaps two of the most eminent professional players in the gaming world. Unmatched in their fields, both are talents who have shaped the gaming community over the last decade. While both pros have a flair for the theatrical, they're also highly dependent.

Ninja rose to the peak of his popularity with the release of Fortnite. Shroud, on the other hand, is a former CS: GO professional for Cloud9. The two are quite different from each other when gaming is concerned.

Ninja and Shroud have their strengths that fans love

While Ninja is known for his antics and hyperactive behavior, Shroud is recognized for his composure and understated arrogance. However, both of these players are great friends in real life.


Recently, after the collapse of Mixer, Shroud and Ninja were given tremendous sums of money as a part of their contracts. These two moved from Twitch to influence the growth of this Microsoft platform; however, they returned to the former recently and currently stream live on the platform.

When fans debate who is the best among the two, the answer can never be straightforward. For instance, both are blessed with abilities that the other wishes he had. Ninja has time and again complemented Shroud as an aim-God. There is no doubt that if the mechanical skill is considered, Shroud is leagues ahead of other streamers and pros.


Similarly, when players look up to someone as an authoritative figure in the gaming community, they think of Ninja. His influencing skills are beyond compare, and this is something Shroud agrees too.

Generational talents are beyond compare 

There have been several competitions and tournaments where they went up against each other with their respective teams. On numerous occasions, Ninja won, but mostly, it was Shroud who dominated these tourneys.

From games like PUBG, Apex Legends, and Rainbow Siege Six to Valorant, Fortnite, and Call Of Duty, they have played it all.


Both Ninja and Shroud are versatile in their own ways, and it is wrong to compare them both. Thus, when players and fans discuss on social media about who is the best, it has to be remembere that there is no one on their level. One cannot just compare Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, just like they cannot compare Shroud or Ninja.
