Greg created OniChan on September 26, 2013. (Source) It is not really known what the channel was called or what he used it for until 2017, but in 2017 the channel emerged as OniChan. On July 31, 2017, Greg uploaded a video to almost all his channels announcing he will be "deleting" or "quitting" many of them and replacing them with OniChan.
In the Onision Reacts video "I Quit This Channel", he said he would combine the channels Onision Games and Onision Reacts into Onichan. ($ource) Both channels were only active for two months at this point.
In the Speaks video "Onision Quitting All His Channels?", Greg announced he was going to keep a "trinity" or 3 channels. Onichan for his comedy/light side, Speaks for his darker non ad friendly videos, and UhOhBro as an archive. He compares it to his "roots", or original three channels: Onision, OnisionSpeaks, and OnisionArchive. ($ource)
In the Onision channel video "This Is My Last Onision Video, Goodbye", he announced the Onision channel is over because he's been seeing negative subscriber growth every day and it makes his depressed. He wants to see growth and doesn't want to let his fans down by spreading himself thin. He announced his Onision channel videos are going to Onichan and they are going to be "compatible with the new Youtube". (Video Deleted)

On August 4, 2017, Greg uploaded "I'm Quitting These YouTube Channels" to Speaks. He announced OniChan is dead because he received community strike because he had two fully clothes gorillas in his videos that were pixelated up to their necks. Greg announces he will use Speaks for new content and UhOhBro for re-uploads. ($ource)
For a bit in early 2018, Greg used OniChan to host re-uploaded skit videos that were demonetized on other channels. (Source)
On August 25, 2018, Greg deleted all the videos on Onichan and uploaded the video "I Deleted All My Videos". In the video he explains this channel was supposed to replace Onision, but it crashed due to things beyond his control, He says OniChan had potential and got decent views. He directs his fans to subscribe to New Channel. ($ource)
