1. He used to be an international trampolinist

Tubbo has revealed, he used to be an international trampolinist, once upon a time. “I used to be an international trampolinist. Yeah! I know… I was a gym freak. I know! I know!” He joked about this with Sam “Awesamdude” in a stream.
2. He is dyslexic
Tubbo has been very open about his dyslexia. He’s never talked about it in full, but he’s mentioned it in passing a bunch. It’s very admirable to see someone so young have a bit of a voice for that disability, as it affects nearly five to ten percent of the population worldwide. His ability to be unashamed of having dyslexia, and even joke about it, reflects such bravery and comfort to his own fans who might have dyslexia as well.
3. He met Tommy through a stream raid
Would fans believe that this inseparable duo met long before they began streaming under their current names? This happened long before they made a name for themselves during the reign of L’Manberg, or the birth of both, “TommyInnit,” and “Tubbo.” Back when they were smaller streamers, just starting out, Tommy had raided a stream that Tubbo was doing at the time. They became fast best friends from there, and the rest is history.

There is a blog attached to this segment that has a list of known boundaries for creators, including Tubbo, in the MCYT Community.
