Wade Barnes (April 3, 1989) is an American gaming YouTuber. He is mostly known as being one of the best friend of a bigger YouTuber Markiplier, and is also friends with Muyskerm. He currently resides in Cincinnati, Ohio.
Markplier and Wade have known each other since middle school, having passed each other occasionally, and have attended the same high school together. Sometime following the loss of Mark's previous channel due to an issue with AdSense, as well as the resulting discouragement, he and Wade met and talked with each other on a balcony for three hours about future potential, encouraging Mark to reboot his efforts and start his current channel.
Wade is often the subject of the group's hateful comments on-camera – they poke fun at him, don't pay him any attention and pin the blame on him for most of their problems (including those that Wade had no part in whatsoever, much to his shock). On one occasion, they also accused him of lying about a girl he met during a night out.
Wade does not have a certain schedule to upload videos, unlike Markiplier, who posts everyday.
As of September 29 of 2015, Wade hired an editor to help him publish video faster and this allowed him to post 2-3 videos a day.
Wade is a gamer, and he usually plays Garry's Mod or horror games. He sometimes plays Minecraft to do this silly activity called "DRUNK MINECRAFT" where he, Mark, and Bob (aka Muyskerm) get drunk and do complicated activities with their Minecraft characters.
Wade also contributes to St. Jude's Research Hospital.
