This page lists small and unofficial Virtual YouTuber groups and collaborations.
Four Heavenly Kings (四天王)
The Four Heavenly Kings (四天王, Shitennou) is an informal umbrella term coined by Japanese fans of virtual youtubers meant to associate the at the time four vtubers with the biggest amount of subscribers on YouTube (at the end of 2017): Kizuna AI, Kaguya Luna, Mirai Akari and Nojaloli.
Because of the subscribers gap between AI and the rest of the Heavenly Kings, that she is now above that category and called the Boss from onwards (親分 Oyabun, a term coined by Kaguya Luna), which allowed Siro to be included as part of the Four Heavenly Kings.
The term is derived from Buddhist mythology. The Four Heavenly Kings are deities each of whom watches over one cardinal direction of the world.
The VTuber world has greatly grown and changed since this term was coined (most notably, Nojaloli is no longer active), and it has not been updated with a new definition.

- Kaguya Luna
- Mirai Akari

Tenmakinin (天魔機忍) and ver.G
This is likely the first Virtual YouTuber group in existence. Gorilla was added later and it became Tenmakinin ver.G. After Kurumi's disappearance the remaining members reduced their group's activities.
On 30 December 2018, as a surprise feature to the watchers of the V Kōhaku Uta Gassen, the Tenmakinin ver G. made an special apparition in a form of a video singing a rendition of Ryoichi Higuchi's Roku Bun No Ichi No Yumetabi Bito Ni Sen Ni (1/6の夢旅人2002)  This is the first time ever that Kurumi and Virtual Gorilla had interacted with each other, the first time all of them appear with their updated 3D models and the first time the five members of the Tenmakinin ver. G do an apparition together.
