Toby Smith (born: December 23, 2003 ), better known online as Tubbo (also known as Tubbo_ ), is an English Twitch streamer and occasional YouTuber known for playing Minecraft. He gained popularity after being featured in TommyInnit's Minecraft streams and has collaborated with several Minecraft YouTubers and streamers.
Most of his videos are clips from his streams on Twitch. He has been streaming on Twitch for around two years and became a partner in 2020, surpassing one million Twitch followers on November 21, 2020.
Toby Smith was born on December 23, 2003 in England. He is dyslexic and grew up with two sisters, named Lani (born: October 29, 2007 and Teagan. He is 5'5" (165 centimeters) tall. He has stated that he is uncomfortable being addressed by his first name by people who aren't close to him. He used to be an international trampolinist. He has a ginger cat named Rocky.)
Tubbo started streaming on Twitch in 2018 and has seen significant growth in 2020. He used to (and sometimes still does) stream Skyblock and his modded SMP series.
Later on, he joined SMPEarth, a large Minecraft survival multiplayer server, which was shut down in April 2020. He is infamous for being the only person on SMPEarth to be killed by a player who was AFK (VoiceoverPete).
Tubbo has now joined the Dream SMP, and (very) frequently plays on there to this day.
Tubbo is friends with TommyInnit, another YouTuber and streamer who produces similar content and is about the same age as him, although, contrarily to popular belief, Tubbo is older than Tommy by 4 months. The pair became friends when they were both small Twitch streamers when Tommy raided Tubbo's stream. This was before either of them started their YouTube careers under their currently known names.
Tubbo is frequently seen in videos on Tommy's YouTube channel. The most recognizable videos are where they explore hacked clients. They also record on servers such as Wynncraft and TheArchon where Tubbo shared his knowledge of servers.
In videos, TommyInnit mocks Tubbo due to his interest and knowledge of hacked clients and Minecraft servers.
He has been involved in many Minecraft series including:
- Hypixel Skyblock
- Blockworth Season 2
- The Dream SMP
Around mid-2020, Tubbo released an anarchy server called POGGOP (poggop.org). The project was soon abandoned due to development issues and lag problems.
Qube Mini-games Network (worked on around June 2020) lasted for about two months before a code licensing problem, although the network provided a few streams.
He is currently working on TubNet (TubboNetwork), an upcoming crossplay minigames server which will be able to support tens of thousands of players. It will consist of 1.16 minigames. (@TubboNetwork)
- He was a member of L'Manberg (formerly known as Manberg). Jschlatt kicked TommyInnit and Wilbur Soot out of the nation when he became president, but Tubbo stayed there to work under Jschlatt. During this time, he was actually a spy for Pogtopia, a nation formed by Wilbur Soot and TommyInnit, but had his cover blown by JschlattLIVE and was killed in front of a crowd in the Manberg Festival. After that he became an official member of Pogtopia.
- Pogtopia reclaimed Manberg after a great war between the two nations and Manberg was once again renamed to L'Manberg. Tubbo was named the new President by Wilbur Soot(the former president) after TommyInnit(the now Vice President) rejected Wilbur's promotion. Tubbo is currently working as president to rebuild L'Manberg and make it a prosperous nation once again after Wilbur blew it up shortly after the events of the war.
- Tubbo has multiple "personalities" while roleplaying inside the Dream SMP server; these include Tubbox, Tubboat, Big Crime, Big Law, Tubo, and Toob.
- Tubbo was invited to the Twitch partner program in April 2020.
- Tubbo is a fan of South Park. One of his favorite characters is Tweek Tweak, with his Minecraft skin being based on Tweek and him dressing as Tweek for Halloween in 2020.
- Tubbo won the MrBeast $100,000 Dream SMP Gift Card Challenge and gave away much of his prize money to his viewers. He nearly came close to losing, had it not been for Jack Manifold going the wrong direction of the final stretch towards the end of the challenge.
- People sometimes joke that Tubbo is younger than TommyInnit.
Minecraft Championship is a Minecraft Tournament for YouTubers and streamers run by the Noxcrew, in which 10 teams of four compete in a series of 8 minigames decided by the participants. A point multiplier makes each game worth more as each round passes, incentivizing teams to vote for games they might be bad at early on in the event. In the end, the two teams with the most points face off in a round of ‘Dodgebolt’ to decide the winner of the tournament. This makes it possible for a team to win despite potentially having fewer points than the runner-up.
