The YouTube Rangers, often abbreviated as the YTR, YR or simply the Rangers, is a YouTube gaming and machinima community founded by Starman3. It became a popular group in the Super Mario 64 Machinima Community around 2011, however from 2013 to 2014 the group's size diminished due to controversy around Starman3 and related conflicts. As of 2021, it still exists on Discord. Some notable former members include SuperMarioGlitchy4 and MarioMario54321.

Starman3’s Super Mario 64 Bloopers
The YouTube Rangers appeared as major characters in Starman3’s Super Mario 64 Bloopers. They were depicted as residing in Blooper Land, and served as the main group Starman3 belonged to. They were attacked by a group led by Ztarman3 known as the Blooper Stoppers, which led to a conflict as seen in Super Mario 64 Blooper 40.
The YouTube Rangers appeared in earlier seasons of the web series SMG4. In Super Mario 64 Bloopers: SMG4 Joins the YTR, Starman3 invited SuperMarioGlitchy4 to join the YouTube Rangers, which led to Mario to try to find a way to join as well.
