Daxflame is the YouTube alias of Madison Patrello, a YouTuber known for vlog entries and comedy sketches. His posts feature him, arguably, playing a socially awkward and aggressive young man; though, many have debated whether or not the character is a piece of performance art of Flame's real personality.
