How Ironmouse Became the Content Creator of the Year

The Game Awards 2023 was a night full of surprises, but none more so than the winner of the Content Creator of the Year award. Out of the five nominees, the one who took home the trophy was none other than Ironmouse, a virtual YouTuber and Twitch streamer who uses a cute and colorful demon avatar to entertain her fans.

Ironmouse is not your typical content creator. She is a Puerto Rican-American VTuber, singer, and streamer who has been active since 2017. She is also a founding member of VShojo, a U.S.-based agency of English-language VTubers launched in 2020. With over one million followers on Twitch, she is the most-followed English language VTuber on the platform. She also has the record for most subscribed female streamer on Twitch. 

But behind her cheerful and energetic persona, there is a story of struggle and resilience. Ironmouse suffers from a rare immune disorder called common variable immunodeficiency (CVID), which has left her largely bedridden and isolated. She requires oxygen support 24/7 and has a high risk of infection. This condition also affected her voice, giving her a distinctive high-pitched tone that some people have mistaken for a voice changer. 

Ironmouse originally planned to pursue a career as an opera singer, but had to abandon her dream due to her illness. She turned to streaming as a way to cope with her loneliness and express her creativity. She was inspired by the Japanese entertainer Kizuna AI, the first YouTuber to refer to themselves as a "virtual YouTuber". She decided to use a digital avatar to conceal her identity and create a character that was a "bigger version of me" and "like a superhero costume". 

Ironmouse's character is a demon queen who goes by several names, but has also been rumored to be Satan herself. She is a friendly, fun-loving demon who ran from her duties and escaped the confines of Hell/the underworld in order to make new friends, learn new things and live life to the fullest. She has an obsession with the internet, music, lewd stuff, nerd shit, and all things cute. She wears special magical bells on her body to contain and control her power in order to better blend into the human world. If her bells ever get removed, pure chaos would ensue. It has been said that once the bells are off, her true demon queen form will be revealed. 

Ironmouse's streams are full of humor, positivity, and variety. She plays games like Fortnite, Minecraft, and horror titles, sings songs ranging from opera to pop, chats with her viewers and other streamers, and occasionally does ASMR and karaoke sessions. She is known for her crazy personality, her wide vocal range, and her ability to imitate celebrities like Shakira and Britney Spears. She is also very interactive with her fans, whom she calls her "little demons". She often reads their comments, donations, and messages, and sometimes even calls them on Discord for a more personal conversation.

Ironmouse's popularity and influence have grown exponentially over the years, especially in 2020 and 2021, amid the global pandemic and the rise of VTubing as a trend. ⁹  She has collaborated with many other streamers and personalities, such as CDawgVA, Nyanners, Projekt Melody, Ludwig, and QTCinderella. She has also participated in several events and projects, such as the VILLS concert, the Streamer Awards, and Shitcamp. She has also improved her health and quality of life thanks to the support and revenue from her streams, which allowed her to afford better medical care and equipment. 

Ironmouse's win at The Game Awards 2023 was a historic moment for the VTuber community, as it marked the first time that an animated character has won the award, showing how expansive and diverse the streaming world can be.  It was also a testament to her hard work, talent, and perseverance, as well as the love and loyalty of her fans. Ironmouse was overwhelmed with emotion and gratitude when she received the award, and thanked everyone who voted for her and supported her throughout her journey. She also dedicated the award to her fellow VTubers and streamers, and to anyone who has a dream and is willing to chase it.

Ironmouse is more than just a content creator. She is an inspiration, a role model, and a friend to many. She has overcome many challenges and obstacles, and has shown that nothing is impossible with passion and determination. She has brought joy, laughter, and comfort to millions of people around the world, and has made a positive impact on the community. She truly deserves the title of Content Creator of the Year, and we can't wait to see what she does next.
