|“||What's up everybody, it's Beluga!||”|
Artez (born: March 4, 2002 is an American YouTuber whose content revolves around Discord Skits on his main channel, as well as memes and shorts on his second channel Beluga Jr.), better known online as Beluga (formerly known as Survival Mode, exploreld, and ExploreTV, and also called Explore Lucid Dreaming)
On his channel Beluga, Beluga primarily uploads short Discord-related or speedrun meme videos. This channel, even though it's his second channel supposedly, has gained a huge amount of recognition in late June 2021 due to the nature of the content and has quickly outgrown his Lucid Dreaming channel.
Nowadays, Beluga uploads Discord-related videos and these videos are partially serial/canon. The protagonist of these videos is usually Beluga himself and sometimes, he pretends to be an anime girl named "Beluwuga" as a disguise, or "Beluga Jr", his son (who has a YouTube channel as well).
These are the recurring characters in Beluga's videos:
- Pablo: Initially a Discord moderator, later shown him to be an admin/server owner of Pablo's Pub. He once fell in love with Pepper.
- Lester: A moderator on Discord and owner of the Lester's Minivan server. He appears to be an assailant, as Skittle vanished after meeting him, and he appears to have a one-sided connection with Skittle-Chan.
- Eugene: A moderator on Discord. Because of his bald head, Beluga regularly compares him to an egg.
- skittle: Beluga's best friend after encountering Lester. Later in the videos, Beluga was suffering from memory loss due to Lester's meddling, however, Hecker used his hacking skills to restore his memories along with skittles, skittle has since made a return.
- skittle-chan: A female Discord user who manipulates guys to do what she wants just by saying "im a girl btw". She was originally an alter-ego of skittle , but for some unknown reason, she now lives separately from skittle. She was also Beluga's obsessed crush and current girlfriend.
- pepper: A Discord user with an almost identical profile picture to Skittle-chan's. She initially rejected Beluga's love confessions but he eventually tricked her to agree to go out on a date with him. They are now dating and Pepper appears to have developed some obsessive feelings for him too as she wanted him to reply to her Snapchat. She was a backup girlfriend for Beluga if Skittle-Chan is gone.
- hecker: Initially a hacker who originally threatens Beluga, he later gradually becomes one of the latter's best friends once Skittle disappears, as the videos go. Beluga repeatedly pleads for his assistance. Due to Beluga saying that he knew Hecker's true name, which began with S, and a snapshot of a Discord message flashing at the conclusion of one episode, which was sent from an account with Skittle's name and Hecker's profile image, some fans believe Hecker and Skittle are the same person. This, however, has yet to be confirmed. He is also shown in Pierus' videos.
- Vladimir: A Russian dog wearing an Ushanka, sometimes being a security/police. He is not a mod, but he uses English grammar, spelling, and punctuation well. Although, he didn't in 2 videos. (Could still be a mod due to having a red nametag) He also knows every language, except for &BBT/37g (A fictional language Beluga created).
- Snowie: An anime girl who has a crush on beluga. She ate a chunk of lego and somehow, she survived.
- Walt - A Kahoot teacher. He doesn't like people who use inappropriate nicknames, bad nicknames and also people who cheat in Kahoot.
- Mrs Vegan - Another kahoot teacher.

Dream speedrun video
On May 31, 2021, Beluga uploaded a video titled "Did Dream Cheat His Speedrun on Purpose" in which he talks about Dream’s speedrunning scandal. While he didn't accuse Dream directly and says that Dream is a good person in the video, he did claim that he thinks that Dream cheated on purpose. The controversy came as he didn't do much research as he confused Dream’s 1.16 runs for his 1.15 run and then used this as the basis of his entire argument in the video rendering the video completely false. He apologized for this in the comments calling it a mistake. This video was brought to attention by Karl Jobst in his video title "Dream's Cheating Confession: Uncovering The Truth." After this, Beluga's video got some hate with many telling him to delete or private the video since it spread misinformation. Beluga has not removed the video, but instead has edited his earlier comment stating:
|“||This was posted when I had like 6k subs, I didn't know a million people would watch it, I just found it an interesting topic at the time. I love Dream, don't take this the wrong way!! <3||”|
