As Wilbur and Hiro are from different series, they have never met in canon. Even though a few Disney crossover video games could have the dark haired boys crossing paths with each other or get them added in the same team, by the player's choice.
Hiro works in science, while Wilbur enjoys using some of his father's inventions like the time machine. Just as Hiro is very close with Baymax who was built by his brother, Wilbur is good friends with Carl who was built by his father. Even though Hiro is the leader of a superhero teams, Wilbur does have an uncle that dresses and acts like one. Both Hiro and Wilbur live with their aunts and their family pets. When Tadashi and Cornelius (adult Lewis) told the two to not take part in bot fighting or use the time machine, Hiro and Wilbur end up doing those things behind their backs for the sake of having a bit of fun. Along with both of them being a bit arrogant and over confident in themselves at times, in which has got the two in trouble. When the two realize the damage that their careless actions have caused, they do whatever they can to fix it as their robotic friends help them to do so, while keeping it a secret from their families.
Just as Hiro builds the gadgets to help him and his team with their work, the video game of Meet the Robinsons has Wilbur using a set of devices that he uses in the game's prologue storyline. The game also has Wilbur facing a lot of bad robots, while Hiro faces similar kind of bad robots in the Big Hero 6 TV series. Wilbur's video game and Hiro's TV series also has both of them making their way into other people's labs and helping people in need of large or small help from them.
Hirbur is part of the Modern Four crossover fandom and its sub-fandoms. In some versions of a Superhero AU, Wilbur is sometimes given thunder or electric related powers, while Hiro's fan-given superpower commonly has something to be with telekinesis. There have even been times where the Superhero AU has Wilbur wearing BH6 style armour that Hiro made for him. In time travel AU's, Hiro would ask or take Wilbur's time machine to save Tadashi, while Wilbur would do what he can to talk Hiro out of it. There have even been fans who have portrayed Wilbur and Hiro as Jay and Carlos from Descendants.
Some fanwork have Wilbur become friends with Hiro when he gets an internship at Robinson Industry. Since it isn't uncommon for a dork bad boy like Wilbur to befriend a nerd like Hiro, while their arrogates gets them into trouble together whenever their having a bit of fun. Like sky racing with Baymax and the time machine. Even though some have Hiro and Wilbur starting out with a love-hate relationship when they first meet, fanfics have them sort things out as they realize that they compliment each other. With Wilbur being the optimistic one of the two while Hiro is more pessimistic, Wilbur will do whatever he can to cheer Hiro up. Which is why some see them having a similar kind of relationship that Wilbur has with (young) Lewis.
Wilbur's personal, character logo icon is the lightning bolt logo on his clothes, while Hiro's is the microbot shaped H in the Big Hero 6 TV series. These marks are sometimes featured beside or on top of one another to form some sort of Hiro and Wilbur heart.
On AO3, the ship only has 6 fanfics, while fanfiction.net has 3. Even though the ship does have small support on a few other fanbase websites, like Tumblr and Deviantart.
- They are two of the playable characters in Disney crossover games, like Disney INFINITY, Disney Emoji Blitz and Disney Heroes: Battle Mode.
- Wilbur's film is based on a novel of the same name, just as Hiro's is drawn from a Marvel comic of the same name as well.
