General Information
Shipped Characters Trina Vega and Robbie Shapiro
Length of Relationship 2010-Present
Status Frenemies
Rivals Cabbie

Tribbie is the pairing of Trina Vega and Robbie Shapiro (Tri/na and Ro/bbie). It can also be known as Trobbie (Tr/ina and R/obbie) or Rina (R/obbie and Tr/ina) but it's rarely called so. They have also had major scenes in the series, most notably two kisses. Robbie may have feelings for Trina. It is questionable though, if the feeling is mutual, as Trina makes it clear that she's not interested in him on many occasions. Since the episode Stage Fighting, there had been no noticeable signs showing his attraction to Trina. However in Season 3's A Christmas Tori, he once again shows possible attraction to Trina. Trina still denies feelings for Robbie and doesn't consider him a friend, as revealed in The Blonde Squad.

For the real-life pairing between the actors Matt Bennett and Daniella Monet, see Maniella.

    Tumblr lk6ekjVrgsz1qbfppso1 500 - Copy.png

  • Jade posted three pictures of Robbie and Trina working together in the Grub Truck. In one picture, Robbie has his arm around Trina's shoulders. Jade also posted a picture of Robbie playing the banjo and Trina is sitting next to him. Robbie is looking over at Trina in this photo. Jade also says that they are the two most annoying people in school and that they are both morons. (She could possibly be a Tribbie shipper.)
  • Trina posts saying that she was sent home from school because her heels were too high. Rex comments saying he likes it when girls take their shoes off because it makes them closer to his height. Trina asks him why he's always hitting on her. Rex says that if he didn't hit on her, no one would. This could be Robbie trying to hit on Trina but using Rex as an outlet.
  • Robbie posts a blog about things that are and aren't true about him. In the post, he mentions how his first kiss was with a girl named Katie who tripped and her lips grazed his cheek. He then mentioned that he kissed Trina during play auditions, but he did not mention kissing Cat, so this may mean he likes Trina and might not like Cat.
  • In a video posted on TheSlap, Robbie sang a song called "Monkey Woman" about his first love. Trina ended up playing the role of the Monkey Woman.
  • Trina posted a picture of her grabbing Robbie's head for the play in Who Did It to Trina? and said the only reason she touched Robbie was because the script called for it.

Someone tells Tori to play tennis in a bikini, and Robbie really wants her to do it, but instead, she makes him do it and they play tennis together and Trina films it (even though she does not have to and usually refuses to help Tori with anything). This implies that Trina may have been helping so that she would have an excuse to see Robbie in very little clothing. When she gets hit with a tennis ball, Robbie runs over to see if she's okay and even says "Trina-rina?"
