wilbur met niki for the first time irl and almost immediately picked her up and threw her.
wilbur got drunk trying to find a karaoke bar and called philza "daddy."
wilbur niki fundy philza and kristin minecraft watched gacha life porn together.
wilbur met jack manifold for the first time irl and when jack went to give him a fist bump, wilbur instead grabbed his hand and gave it a little kiss.
the first time that wilbur met georgenotfound irl was to orchestrate a fake meet-up with dreamwastaken after wilbur asked him on a pizza hut date. fans would wait months for a vlog that never even happened in the first place.
wilbur heard a passing joke in a jacksucksatlife video about jack accepting applications for a new editor and emailed him, kickstarting an ARG that has gone unsolved for ~3 years. this was the first time they ever spoke to each other.
wilbur met lewis buchan from the antisocial podcast and when lewis asked if he was wilbur soot, wilbur said "no" in an offended tone and 6 months later james marriott had to tell lewis that it actually had been wilbur.
wilbur met meowriza and put the wrong discord account into her contacts and so meowriza was messaging a wilbur soot stan for an entire day before realizing that the account was fake.
wilbur met ash, a complete stranger, at a burger restaurant and saw he had a bass and asked him to join his emo band.
when wilbur and aksel met, aksel kept going up on stage and telling the same joke ("cider? i hardly know her!") in front of dozens of people. one of those people was jacksepticeye. when wilbur met jacksepticeye later, jacksepticeye thought that wilbur had been the one to tell the cider joke and wilbur went along with it.

an ex-president with nukes who is raising his piglin son with his husband, an anarchist enderman with memory loss
a love triangle between a green dictator with a god complex, a fox, and a dethroned king (has since been resolved ever since 1/3 started a mushroom kingdom, 1/3 is still learning to accept his father’s death, and 1/3 went to jail)
said dethroned king also has a god wrapped around his finger (they fell in love at a mcdonald’s)
a poly relationship between a time traveler with memory loss, a former pet murderer, and a corrupt former politician who has taken to gambling
a relationship between a sheep pirate therapist and a team-rocket-villain-turned-anarchist that’s been on hold ever since children started dying
a creeper prison warden and a cat-killing doctor who are now ex-valentines after a mix of cheating, theft, possession, torture, and amputation
a demon and a diamond block that are...married? soulmates? dating? best friends? it doesn’t matter, they both got possessed by a red egg for each other
