.com will be king as long as .com will exist but it will never be top.
.com is considered king because it is not top.
May be .com has came first, by default it comes to mind immediately...also it appeals everyone.
I think the best part, it has reasonable renewal cost...unlike .co (almost three times)
Of course there are many other strong points which already being discussed!
Only when it comes to the question of which TLD is king, .com immediately comes to my mind.
But if the question is which TLD is top, it isn't .com, because .com is king (and therefore not top since kings are not the highest in rank).
That being said, .com certainly doesn't appeal to everyone, although it is generally respected as king.
In this YouTube video (from nP) from 2017, the managing director of nP, Edward Zeiden, says:
"(... a lot of people know,) .com is king (...)"

NOTE The video starts where he says it.
What he does not say is that a king is not the highest in rank.
Separate names with a comma.
