The characters of ''WesternAnimation/TheAmazingWorldOfGumball'' include:


[[folder: The Wattersons]]

!!Zach "[[OnlyKnownByTheirNickname Gumball]]" Watterson/[[spoiler:[[HisNameReallyIsBarkeep Gumball]] Watterson]]
-->Voiced by Logan Grove (seasons 1–3); Jacob Hopkins (season 3 onwards)

The main character (as indicated by the title). Gumball is an anthropomorphic blue cat who attends middle school at Elmore Junior High. A mischief maker and somewhat lazy, the show revolves around his various mishaps around Elmore. Tends to have questionable morals at times and can be a little selfish as well.

* AcquiredSituationalNarcissism: Subverted in "The Name", where he seems to become crazy egotistical after finding out his real name is Zach, [[spoiler:but is actually suffering from [[SplitPersonalityTakeover a much more serious problem.]]]]
* {{Adorkable}}: On his better days.
* AllGuysWantCheerleaders: Gumball has a crush on Penny, a peanut with antlers who is one of the [[TheCheerleader cheerleaders]] at Elmore Junior High. The feeling is mutual, but [[CannotSpitItOut neither of them are capable of expressing it.]]
* AmbidextrousSprite: He always has three whiskers on one side and two on the other, but the pattern tends to flip as a result of this.
* AnnoyingYoungerSibling: {{Inverted|Trope}}. He's older than Anais, and can be this to her, most of the time.
* AttractiveBentGender: When he's forced in a dress, everyone instantly likes him and calls him beautiful. It helps that he takes after Nicole.
* BadassPacifist: Along with Darwin in "The Sweaters", as they refuse to engage the students from the other school in their idiocy. What makes them win in the end; they didn't even try to beat the bad guys.
* BadLiar:
-->'''Nicole:''' Honey, are you in trouble? Because my mother senses are tingling. I can smell trouble.\\
'''Gumball:''' ''(laughing nervously)'' Trouble? No, we're fine. Absolutely fine. No trouble here, bye.\\
'''Nicole:''' Are you lying?\\
'''Gumball:''' Ha! Oh, no, of course not.\\
'''Nicole:''' Right. You're lying. I'm coming home now.
* ButtMonkey[=/=]TheChewToy: AmusingInjuries are quite common, but Gumball seems especially prone to them.
** IronButtMonkey: Gumball is, to put it bluntly, [[NighInvulnerability indestructible.]] He's survived [[NotTheFallThatKillsYou falling off a cliff]], [[BarrierBustingBlow being punched through a wall]], and even [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking being flushed down the toilet]].
** It's taken UpToEleven in "The Curse".
* {{Catchphrase}}: "*sigh* (aggravated) Fine..."
** "What the what!?"
* ClassicalAntiHero: In spite of his lack of physical fitness, intelligence, and maturity, he's usually the most likely one to save the day (although he causes these problems just as much).
* CuteKitten: When he wants to be.
* CuteLittleFangs: Well, he ''is'' a cat.
* DeadpanSnarker: Seems to be getting increasingly snarkier as the show goes on, especially regarding Darwin.
** Becomes especially apparent throughout the second season, and compliments his VocalEvolution (see below) quite nicely, actually. The most obvious example would be "The Bumpkin", where his cynical outlook on modern society is a primary plot element.
* DemonicPossession: In ''The Ghost'' by Carrie, and in ''The Flower'' by a jealousy ghost.
* DependingOnTheWriter: His level of intelligence varies from episode. Sometimes he's a complete idiot, sometimes he's just mischievous, sometimes he just acts like a dork, sometimes he's the OnlySaneMan. Since the latter half of Season 2, his OnlySaneMan status became the more distinct of them all.
* DetachmentCombat: Without the combat though, but Gumball seems to be able to function perfectly whenever a body part gains autonomy.
* {{Determinator}}: In "The Third" he rides a tricycle for 140 kilometers, flies down a hill so fast he catches on fire, and gets covered in quick drying cement (which he promptly breaks through) just to prove that he and Darwin are still friends.
* DisguisedInDrag: In "The Dress", though he was wearing it because all his other clothes were destroyed and only treated it as a disguise when [[PaperThinDisguise no one recognized him.]]
* DisproportionateRetribution: In "The Banana", when he decides to get back at Banana for chewing on Darwin's pen. Subverted, when he finds out what Banana accidentally did to Darwin's stuff. Then he starts to realize that this is is getting out of hand, but Darwin takes a far more step. In the end, a "huge" fight goes on between the three of them and it turns out [[spoiler:the chewed pen was actually Gumball's and he actually chews on it all the time]].
* EmbarrassingMiddleName: "The Club" reveals that his middle name is Tristopher, or in shortened form, "Trisha"--it was supposed to be Christopher, but Richard wrote it down wrong.
* EmbarrassingNickname: "The Meddler" has his mom calling him "Gummypuss".
* FashionableAsymmetry: He has two whiskers pointing forward and three pointing backward, [[AmbidextrousSprite regardless of the direction he's facing.]]
* [[spoiler: FirstKiss:]] [[spoiler: With ''Carmen'' of all people, though subverted as she says it's more of a headbutt than a kiss.]]
* GeniusDitz: He's not very smart in general, but is highly capable in certain (mostly useless and random) skills. He gets a little smarter later on in the second season, though.
* GenreSavvy: He almost avoided the plot of "The Sweaters" by simply admitting to [[NewTransferStudent Sarah]] that he's not actually hardcore rather than continue the lie. He also successfully predicted the entire plot.
** ContractualGenreBlindness: He goes through the ordeal anyway, mainly because of the worry Penny was giving him.
* HartmanHips: A rare male example. Clearly, he gets it from his mom.
* HeroicBSOD: He seems to be prone to these.
* IdiotHero: He does get a little smarter, though, later on.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: While he can be exasperated with others and often does some dumb or insensitive things, he's a good kid and will go out of his way to try and help.
* {{Keet}}: Early on in the series, he is also perpetually energetic. This trait becomes less pronounced later on, as he becomes plenty capable of apathy and cynicism.
* LoserProtagonist: Lazy, irresponsible, BookDumb to a [[TooDumbToLive sometimes dangerous degree]], and usually falls victim to endless abuse each episode. Worsened in that he isn't ''enough'' of a deadbeat loser like his father, who can [[IdiotHoudini reverse it around in his favor]].
* MasterOfNone: One episode establishes him as having ''literally'' no talent.
* NoSenseOfDirection: He think he can somehow memorize a map ''after eating it'' and when the wind is directly speaking to him in plainly decipherable language he does the exact opposite of what it tells him.
* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: "Gumball" is actually a nickname, but until "The Name" nobody but Nicole knew his real first name was "Zach"--not even ''Gumball himself''. [[spoiler:Then "Zach" becomes a [[JerkAss intolerable]] SplitPersonality [[SplitPersonalityTakeover who tries to replace Gumball]], so he [[HisNameReallyIsBarkeep legally changes his name to "Gumball"]] to get rid of him.]]
* OnlySaneMan: While he was a mix of this, being simply michevious, hyperactive or stupid, this is slowly becoming his most seen side.
** The best example is in "The Fridge," being the only family member not worked up into a competitive spirit (started by his mother) and forced to bring the family back to normal.
* PinkGirlBlueBoy: Blue Boy to Anais's Pink Girl.
* TheProtagonist: As the title indicates; after more than eighty episode, "The World" is the only episode where he ''doesn't'' play a major role.
* RubberMan: Gumball has been shown numerous times to be incredibly elastic.
* SanitySlippage: In "The Bumpkin" and "The Helmet."
* ScreamsLikeALittleGirl: Especially in the first season.
* SingleTargetSexuality: The only girl that has stolen Gumball's heart: Penny Fitzgerald.
* SplitPersonalityTakeover: [[spoiler:Zach in "The Name" attempts to do this by [[WrittenByTheWinners altering Gumball's memories]] until he's erased.]]
* SuperPoweredEvilSide: Jealous Gumball in "The Flower", which was strong enough to [[FoeTossingCharge smash through a team of giant football players]]. [[spoiler:Zach in "The Name", who succeeds at [[ButtonMashing almost]] everything Gumball fails at and [[CrazyPrepared "always thinks ahead"]].]]
* SupremeChef: Shown to be at least decent in cooking in the episode "The Secret". Miss Simian has also called his cooking 'divine' and has gotten a B in home economics because of said cooking.
** Though he did make a hilariously bad meal for Anais in "The Responsible", though it may have been RuleOfFunny at work.
* StrongAsTheyNeedToBe: His level of physical fitness is ''heavily'' subject to the RuleOfFunny and RuleOfCool. He's stated to be in such terrible shape that he can't overpower a girl made of paper and his organs have a fit doing basic exercises, but when a ChaseScene happens he's perfectly capable of keeping up or even pulling LeParkour moves.
* StrongFamilyResemblance: He looks almost exactly like a shorter version of his mother. Comparing how she looked at his age, the only difference besides clothes was that she was taller and has different whiskers. In "The Plan", he even tries to impersonate her and since he obscures the huge height difference by standing in a bush, it was amazingly effective.
* TooDumbToLive: In "The Bumpkin", when he gets stung by a wasp on his left index finger and then tries to suck out the poison. Guess what happens next...
* TwiceShy: With Penny. Their feelings are mutual, but both struggle to confess to each other.
* VerbalTic: He tends to squeak, usually when he's yelling. Some of this just seems to be due to Logan Grove's voice cracking.
* VocalEvolution: Along with Darwin, his voice got deeper over the course of the first two season as his VA got older.
* WhoNamesTheirKidDude: His odd name is sometimes commented on, most notably by Mr. Small in "The Banana".
* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: "AHHH, spider! Knock his block off!"
* WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity: He displays this in "The helmet".

!!Darwin Watterson
-->Voiced by Kwesi Boakye (season 1–3); Terrell Ransom, Jr. (season 3 onwards)

Gumball's pet goldfish-turned-family member after it sprouted legs, grew in size, and began to talk. Gumball and Darwin are seen as brothers (Darwin even calls Nicole "Mrs Mom" and Richard "Mr. Dad") and attend the same school. Darwin is a bit naive due to his forced adaptation among the "normal" world, though he is more rational and moral than Gumball.

* AccessoryWearingCartoonAnimal[=/=]TheOneWhoWearsShoes: Lampshaded in "The Meddler", where a scene in the shower pixellates Gumball's genitals and Darwin's ''feet''.
** Mentioned by Anais in "The Job", where she states that they've been wearing the same clothes for a year and that it's time for Darwin to start wearing pants.
* AccidentalKiss: With [[spoiler: Gumball]] in "The Pressure". Luckily, they never found out.
* ActualPacifist: Or a "[[{{Pun}} Pacifish]]"", as he puts it. [[BewareTheNiceOnes This changes]] [[BewareTheSillyOnes in Season 2.]]
* {{Adorkable}}: More so in season 1, where his naivete is played up more often than Gumball's.
* BadassPacifist: Along with Gumball in "The Sweaters", as they refuse to engage the students from the other school in their idiocy. What makes them win in the end; they didn't even try to beat the bad guys.
* [[BadImpressionists Bad Impressionist]]: On the phone with Nicole in "The Flakers", trying to impersonate Richard (while speaking in his own usual high voice) after discovering that he has escaped the house:
-->'''Nicole''': Can you pass me onto him, please?\\
'''Darwin''': Um, yeah... one minute!\\
''(clears throat and tries to impersonate Richard)''\\
'''Darwin''': Hello, Mrs. Mom, what's for dinner?\\
'''Nicole''': ''(unconvinced)'' Really?\\
'''Darwin''': ''(defeated)'' Y-ep.
* BadLiar: Neither he nor Gumball could resist darting their eyes to the side when lying to Anais.
* BewareTheNiceOnes[=/=]BewareTheSillyOnes: He becomes a lot more aggressive when provoked in the second season; a prime example would be "The Banana".
* BigEater: At least, he tends to think with his stomach from time to time as most fish seem to do.
* CheerfulChild: Under most circumstances, he's a pretty happy guy. [[BewareTheNiceOnes When he isn't...]]
* TheConscience: He has a higher moral sense than Gumball does. In "The Sidekick", Gumball tells him that he counts on Darwin to stop him from going through with especially bad ideas.
* DeadpanSnarker: Well, usually his snarking is a lot more cheerful, but he gets more and more of it after the first season.
* DependingOnTheWriter: Like above, his level of intelligence also varies depending on the episode, as does how peaceful and innocent he is.
* {{Deuteragonist}}: He has at least a secondary role in more episodes than anyone but Gumball.
* TheDitz[=/=]GeniusDitz: Like Gumball, he's not very smart except when it comes to some very specific things, and becomes more intelligent later on.
* FishOutOfWater: A literal example.
* GenreSavvy: Like Gumball in "The Sweaters"
* HappilyAdopted: Darwin's treated like as much of a member of the family as Gumball is. Although legally he's still registered as a pet.
* IncorruptiblePurePureness: When taken over by Jealousy in "The Flower" he's the only one with no spite or envy of anyone else, instead just stating he's "actually quite happy with my life".
* InsistentTerminology: He considers himself to be/have been an "Animal Companion", not a pet.
* {{Keet}}: In early episodes he's almost unfailingly energetic. He becomes less so later on, but he's still usually more energetic and optimist than Gumball.
* MeaningfulName: He was once the family pet fish but then he sprouted legs and doesn't need water to breathe anymore. [[CharlesDarwin Think about that for a second.]]
** His middle names all have nautical connections.
* NamedAfterSomebodyFamous: ''Several'' somebodies.
* OnlySaneMan: Though not necessarily the ''smartest'' person in any episode he's in, he's traded off on the role of "the only person being objective while everything's going nuts" with Anais on occasion, and has started playing the StraightMan to Gumball's antics more. Gumball basically says in "The Sidekick" that his role in their dynamic is to stop him from doing really crazy things.
* OverlyLongName: In "The Party", he reveals that his full name is Darwin Radlin Caspian Ahab Poseidon Nicodemus Watterson III.
* PostKissCatatonia: In "The Party", he helps Rachel clean up her home at her party before her parents come home. She rewards him with a kiss on the cheek, resulting in him crashing head first to the floor with a goofy smile on his face.
* SarcasmBlind: In season 1. In season 2, he snarks with the best of them.
* SpeechImpediment: In "The Sock," Gumball points out that Darwin has a lisp where his gills whistle. Darwin retorts with "You're so stinky, sailors sing sea shanties about how stinky you are!" making a whistling sound with every 'S'. This only happens for that one and only time, though. In fact, ''the very next sentence'' he says contains 'S'es without the lisp.
* StepfordSmiler: In "The Meddler", Darwin constantly smiles to hide his displeasure of Nicole coming to school--later on he keeps doing so because he forgot how to stop.
* TookALevelInJerkass: Invoked in "The Words", where Gumball advises him to be more direct with his opinions, which results in insulting everyone, and being proud of it. Generally, he's much more snarky and aggressive in season 2; almost being on the same level as Gumball himself when he's supposed to be more righteous than him.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Fish flakes, apparently.
* UpliftedAnimal
* VocalEvolution: Along with Gumball, his voice got deeper over the course of the first two season as his VA got older.

!!Anais Watterson
-->Voiced by Kyla Rae Kowalewski

Gumball's genius little (rabbit) sister, who is his junior by eight years (Gumball is 12, she is 4). Due to her high intelligence, she attends Gumball and Darwin's middle school as well. Despite her competency, she still displays some traits of a typical four-year old.

* AnnoyingYoungerSibling: Gumball is far more likely to annoy her, but she has her moments, especially in season two.
* BewareTheNiceOnes[=/=]BerserkButton: Do not insult Daisy the Donkey in front of her.
* TheChessmaster: In "The Remote", she manipulates the entire rest of the family to lock them outside while she watches TV.
* ChildProdigy: Despite being four years old, she is described as the smartest character on the show and even attends Junior High with her much older brother.
* FullyDressedCartoonAnimal: Though she seems to just be wearing socks instead of shoes.
** However, in "The Goons", she was seen briefly not wearing (at least one of her) socks. Also, in "The Castle", she's wearing magenta footless pajamas for most of the episode, making her a BarefootCartoonAnimal.
* GradeSkipper: She's 4, and attends the same middle school as her brothers.
* {{It Is Pronounced Tro-PAY}}: Subverted. Her name is pronounced both as An-ai-ees and An-ai-ahs and she never favors one over the other. Given that Ben Bocquelet (the show creator) is French-British and named the character after his sister, the proper pronunciation of is "An-ai-ees," and the proper spelling is with two dots over the "i" (ï) to indicate two separate long vowel sounds (a long "i" as in "high" and a long "e" as in "piece").
* [[WomenAreWiser Little Girls Are Wiser]]: The most consistently levelheaded member of the family.
* LittleMissSnarker: Only 4, and a veteran master of snark.
* [[OnlySaneMan Only Sane Girl]]: Can be her or can be her mother, depending on the episode.
* PinkGirlBlueBoy: Pink Girl to Gumball's Blue Boy.
* PintSizedPowerhouse: She is depicted as being able to life way more than her body weight at a very young age at that. Such as when she carried a ton of luggage upstairs and the time she carried Darwin with a bunch of stuff on him all the way to the top of a mountain.
* NotSoAboveItAll: She's considerably more child-like--or even flat out crazy--when it comes to anything involving Daisy the Donkey.
* [[StraightMan Straight Girl]]: Usually. She's the most serious character on the show, but sometimes she slithers away from this.
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: Girly Girl to Nicole's Tomboy.
* TooDumbToLive: In "The Goons", [[OutOfCharacter a rather rare one occurs]], despite [[ObfuscatingStupidity trying to be dumb for one day]], she proved to be this near the end of the episode. When she and Gumball were raising blindfolded, after they make up for their flaws, the two of them remove their blindfolds, hug, and then get run over by Bert, who was riding on a wheelchair cart. While this is excusable for Gumball, since he was on the sidewalk and his back was turned towards Bert, the same can't be said for Anais, who was facing right at Bert moments before she's run over.
** "Halloween" takes this trope UpToEleven, when she drinks out of a green liquid out of a lab glassware, causing her to turn her into a ghost. Unlike "The Goons", however, her brothers also pull that same stunt.
* {{Tuckerization}}: Named after Ben Bocquelet's younger sister.
* [[TheUglyGuysHotDaughter The Ugly Guy's Cute Daughter]]: Especially noticeable in that when we see Nicole and Richard as children, you see Nicole and Gumball looks very similar but Anais doesn't really look like either of her parents.
* WackyParentSeriousChild: The serious child to Richard's wacky parent.
* WiseBeyondTheirYears: She usually acts much older than her age in terms of knowledge and maturity.

!!Nicole Watterson
-->Voiced by Teresa Gallagher

The maternal member of the Watterson family (and the same kind of cat as Gumball). She holds down a job at the rainbow factory and appears to be the only member of the family with any sense of responsibility. She's normally collected and organized but when things go awry, she succumbs to violent bouts of anger (almost always sparked by her sons).

* ActionMom: She's super-humanly athletic and not afraid to get physical.
-->'''Gumball''': The woman is virtually a ninja.
* [[AmazinglyEmbarrassingParents Amazingly Embarrassing Parent]]: In "The Meddler" she decides to follow Gumball around at school everywhere, even in the public shower, doing things such as feeding him like a baby and calling him "Gummypuss".
* BadassAdorable: Alternatively, not at the same time.
* BerserkButton: MANY. Being called a loser (at least by Miss Simian), threatening her family and disrespecting her authority. And '''DON'T YOU DARE''' run away from her if she finds out you're in trouble.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: She is really sincere, but sometimes she can get really violent, so it's best you run for it if she does.
* ChildhoodFriendRomance: Has known her husband, Richard, at least since they were Gumball's age.
* CompetitionFreak: She has a huge drive to win. This is arguably her biggest flaw.
** In "The Fridge", she wins the company paintball game by shooting everyone, even her own teammates, to win the game as well as sucking most of the family into an achievement binge (Gumball being the OnlySaneMan.) She tried to pull a ISurrenderSuckers moment to Gumball during the family paintball game before he finally wins and has the chart removed.
** She cheats Anais out of six spaces while playing "Dodge or Dare" with the family in "The Game" through LoopholeAbuse.
* ControlFreak: Pointed out by Anais in "The Job." Anais thinks Nicole is worried about Richard working as a pizza delivery guy because she thinks it's upsetting the balance of power in the house. [[spoiler:Although she's right that there's a bigger problem with that: namely that Richard having a job will destroy the universe.]]
* CuteBruiser: Don't make her mad. She is a ''lot'' stronger than she looks.
* CuteLittleFangs: Though they're visible far less often then Gumball's.
* {{Determinator}}: She gets scary when she gets mad and probably can and '''will''' chase you down. "The DVD" and "The Limit" are based entirely on these moments.
* DeathGlare: The Castle gives her [[ComicBook/GhostRider Glowing White Eyes]] swirling with ghosts enough to frighten even the most delinquent person in Elmore.
* DisproportionateRetribution: When Gumball and Darwin laugh at some of Richard's past screw-ups, not knowing he was within earshot, she hurls cement cupcakes at them and downright refuses to provide for them until they apologize, when all she needed to do was scold them for being rude.
* DotingParent: When her kids aren't doing something reprehensible, she can be quite coddling toward them, especially in "The Meddler".
* TheDreaded: Her own family is scared of her, especially when she gets mad. Case in point: in "The Quest," Gumball and Darwin both agree that suffering Tina Rex's wrath is better than suffering Nicole's.
* FullNameUltimatum: Subverted as she never uses Gumball's EmbarrassingMiddleName, it's always "Gumball Watterson".
* HairTriggerTemper: Nicole cares for her family, but easily becomes upset when she discovers they did something wrong. She's even taking anger management classes, in which her behavior is far worse than she acts elsewhere.
* HartmanHips: Not including her head, her hips are the widest feature of her body.
* HugeGuyTinyGirl: With Richard.
* HulkingOut: She starts doing this when Larry closes the store gates on her in "The Finale" and she starts pulling them up. Odd, given similar or even greater feats of strength she's previous done [[MusclesAreMeaningless required no such musculature.]]
* InterspeciesRomance: With Richard.
* KillerRabbit: She has proven herself to be made of this trope in countless episodes, most notably in The Fight, where she mercilessly tears through Tina Rex's father just at the mere inkling of assuming that Gumball was being bullied.
* LeParkour: She's very good at this.
* MagicSkirt: Including one scene where she's [[UnwillingSuspension hung upside down]] without it moving.
* MasculineGirlFeminineBoy: Masculine Girl to Richard's Feminine Boy.
* MamaBear: She's VERY protective of her own family.
* MusclesAreMeaningless: In spite of her arms and legs being quite skinny, she's capable of things like bending steel rods and tearing locker doors off their hinges.
* NotSoAboveItAll: Nicole would be insufferable if not for her insecurity and occasional lapses in judgment.
* [[OnlySaneMan Only Sane Woman]]: Depends on the episode, which sometimes gives the role to Anais instead. However, when her temper or competitive streak get the better of her, this aspect goes out the window.
* ParentingTheHusband: Nicole often does to Richard, due to his own mother having been responsible for his childish nature in the first place.
* PinkGirlBlueBoy: {{Inverted|Trope}}. She's the Blue Girl to Richard's Pink Boy.
* RageBreakingPoint: "The Limit" shows us what happens when her family pushes her buttons just one too many times.
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: Tomboy to Anais's Girly Girl.
* {{Tuckerization}}: Named after Ben Bocquelet's mother.
* ShipperOnDeck: Judging from "The Meddler" and "The GI", she seems to root for Gumball/Penny. Possibly it's because Penny reminds her very much of herself in her childhood when she had a crush on Richard and defended him.
* SuperWeight: Unclear where she lies on the scale. At first glance appears to be 1, but some incidents, such as beating up Tina Rex's father (despite being 1/100th his size) suggests it may be higher. The nature of her power is unclear other than it appears to be fueled by anger.
* UnstoppableRage: She has tremendous SuperStrength, but apparently ''only'' when she's angry. In "The Club", she even has to ''ask'' her family to enrage her somehow so she can pull a door open.
* UglyGuyHotWife: An adorable cat woman, married to a fat, slobbish man bunny.
* VoiceOfTheLegion: When sufficiently pissed off, her voice gets really deep as well as echoing.
* WhatDoesSheSeeInHim: Richard is by no means a bad person, but he is lazy, irresponsible and pretty offbeat (albeit he was raised that way). She does admire that he is true to himself and that he's a good person, but we don't know what else. Considering her need for control, most other people would either not be able to handle her or other negative consequences.
* WomenAreWiser: Usually this, barring her competitive nature doesn't cause her to go nuts.
* {{Workaholic}}: Played for laughs in "The Painting" when Principal Brown tells her to relax and stop working so hard for Anais's sake. But she's so used to it that she can't relax and does her household chores anyway, and then proceeds to trash the house on purpose to give herself more "work".

!!Richard Watterson
-->Voiced by Dan Russell

Gumball's father and Nicole's rabbit husband. Richard is very immature for his age and hates to have any sort of responsibility. He is also quite lackadaisical and sleeps frequently. As a result, Nicole is usually forced to be the parent to their children.

* AdultsAreUseless: Richard practically ''lives'' this trope.
* {{Amazingly Embarrassing Parent|s}}: In "The Hero", Gumball and Darwin fail to come up with something good for their dad and settles on embarassing moments. Unknown to them at the time, Richard overhears the conversation and leaves depressed.
* AxCrazy: In "The Prank" after the kids prank him one too many times, he goes completely psycho with SlasherSmile chasing them all over the house. It turns out that making them think he went insane was his way of pranking them.
* BadassMustache: Which he can grow and retract back into his face at will.
* BigEater: The man knows how to put food away.
-->'''Richard:''' Eat 100 hotdogs in under a minute. Ha! That's not a dare. That's Tuesday.
* BrilliantButLazy: Most often Brilliant At Lazy.
* BumblingDad: Like you wouldn't believe...
* ChildhoodFriendRomance: He's known his wife, Nicole, since they were Gumball's age.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: He has his odd moments.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: He can be very crafty when he wants to, such as tricking Gumball and Darwin into doing his chores in 'The Laziest'.
* {{Dismotivation}}
* TheDitz: It's easier to count examples of when he doesn't act like one.
* DrivesLikeCrazy: He follows his GPS without ever paying attention to the road, including the direction he's facing. When he was high on anesthetics he crashed in several cars and parked in a swimming pool which Gumball considered an ''improvement''.
* DotingParent: Shown in "The Hero".
* FanDisservice: Whenever he's shirtless.
* FatIdiot[=/=]FatSlob
* FreudianExcuse: His laziness and stupidity is the result of his mother completely sheltering him his entire life and never letting him learn to do anything for himself. His mother's parenting style was to make him (and as she tried with her grandkids), scared of everything.
* GeniusDitz: He's surprisingly great at pizza delivery, of all things. [[spoiler: Both doing actual work and not being incompetent is so out of character that it nearly destroys the universe through sheer ''wrongness''.]]
* HouseHusband: Though he doesn't do much house work either. When he finally gets a job, [[spoiler:it nearly destroys the Universe.]]
* HugeGuyTinyGirl: He's something like half a head taller than Nicole and several times as large.
* InterspeciesRomance: With Nicole.
* KarmaHoudini: Gets away with his actions in "The Prank" and "The Laziest", and lets his sons take the fall.
* LaboriousLaziness: Richard is a master at this.
* LazyBum: Laziest man in Elmore since 1983.
* ManChild: He literally acts the exact same way as he did when he was a kid.
* MasculineGirlFeminineBoy: Feminine Boy to Nicole's Masculine Girl.
* MikeNelsonDestroyerOfWorlds: [[spoiler:He almost destroyed the Universe by [[ItMakesSenseInContext delivering a pizza]].]]
* MoralMyopia: He's repeatedly expressed that bad things are only funny when they happen to someone else.
* OneOfTheKids: Much to his wife's frustration.
* PapaWolf: In "The Hero".
* PinkGirlBlueBoy: {{Inverted|Trope}}. He's the Pink Boy to Nicole's Blue Girl.
* ThePrankster: In "The Prank".
* ShirtlessScene: Prone to this.
* TheSlacker: A rare version of one that has children.
** LazyHusband
* {{Sleepyhead}}: Most commonly seen sleeping on the couch.
* StoutStrength: Apparently has this in "The Remote" when he effortlessly rips the car door off to get to Nicole.
* StrawLoser: Gumball and Darwin actually look like rather intelligent and diligent beings compared to their father. Granted it almost reverses into being a gift for Richard since he's hopeless enough that people just give up trying to [[IdiotHoudini place any responsibilities onto him]].
* TrademarkFavouriteFood: Sausages, [[ apparently]].
* TooDumbToLive: Thanks to his mom, he's so bad at handling anything that he the simplest of tasks can turn life-threatening.
* {{Tuckerization}}: Named after Ben Bocquelet's father.
* UglyGuyHotWife: An overweight, slob of an idiot. Married to an adorable cat lady.
* WackyParentSeriousChild: The wacky parent to Anais' serious child.
* WalkingTechbane: Judging from how automatic doors, elevators, and self-checkout scanners treat him.
* WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity: Parodied in ''The Wand''. He ''thinks'' he has Power, when it's actually Gumball and Darwin moving along with it so he wont have his childhood dreams crushed. They eventually have enough since it goes overboard.
-->'''Gumball''': [[LampshadeHanging Don't you see what you have become?!]]


* ForTheEvulz: We get a first person sample of his "thought process":
-->'''Turtle:''' Bite! Bite! Bite! Eat more food to bite! Bite! Bite! Make little turtles to bite! Bite! Bite!
* LongNeck: It can extend its neck something like a foot.
* NighInvulnerability: One drop of water let it came back to life from a desiccated husk, then it got hit by a car--the car was totaled, the turtle didn't even budge.
* NoNameGiven: The Watterson's never gave it a name; they're too busy being terrified by it.
* ReptilesAreAbhorrent: Unlike most terrapins in fiction, played ''very'' straight.
* SealedEvilInACan: Since he's basically invincible, his pen in the Watterson's house is essentially this.
* SeldomSeenSpecies: A soft-shell turtle. Quite a few viewers [[AluminumChristmasTrees didn't know there are turtles that look like that.]]



[[folder: Gumball's classmates]]

!!Alan the Balloon
-->Voiced by Rupert Degas (season 1) & Hugo Harold-Harrison (season 2)

A [[AnimateInanimateObject balloon with a face drawn on it]] and a sickeningly nice person. He's [[InterspeciesRomance romantically interested]] in Carmen, which has rather obvious problems.

* ApologizesALot: In "The Voice" he even apologizes for making someone feel they need to apologize.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: After Gumball interrupts his speech to Masami for the third time in a row, he breaks his usual behavior to tell him '''''"Just shut-up, O.K.!!!"'''''
* {{Bishonen}}: His face looks a LOT different in photos than it does in real life.
--> '''Gumball:''' ''(Trying to blow Alan away) It's bad enough-[blow]-that you're a million times prettier than I am!-[blow]-I don't need you to rub it in my face-[blow]-on how mature and deep you are! [blow]''
** BeautyMark: His ''mole'' is even beautiful.
* [[BizarreAlienBiology Bizarre Object Biology]]: Gumball refers to him as a "biological mystery" when he couldn't tell Alan was crying, but Alan explains:
-->'''Alan:''' Air comes in the knot, air comes out the knot.\\
'''Gumball:''' Hmm, hmm... What about the spaghetti, though?\\
'''Alan:''' Spaghetti goes in, turns into air, comes back out.\\
'''Gumball:''' (beat) [[ToiletHumor So technically you weren't only crying just now.]]
* FatalAttraction: Alan and Carmen are passionately in love with one another, but because Alan is a balloon and Carmen is a cactus, their relationship is impossible.
* FlyingFace: Alan is just a balloon with a face drawn on it. His lack of limbs is a frequent frustration of his.
* HeliumSpeech: Invoked as he has a high squeaky voice similar to the effects of helium.
** Justified since he's a [[AnimateInanimateObject balloon]].
* IncorruptiblePurePureness[=/=]ParodySue: Is ludicrously good and perfect - a PuritySue parody.
* NiceGuy: So nice, that it makes Gumball (and everyone else) ''sick''.
* RunningGag: He has no hands!
* SickeninglySweethearts: In "The Storm", he is sickeningly sweet with Carmen, much to their classmates' disgust.
* TertiarySexualCharacteristics: While he's a boy, he has obvious eyelashes that makes him appear to be a girl.

!!Anton the Toast
-->Voiced by Lewis [=MacLeod=]

A [[AnthropomorphicFood piece of toast]] subject to endless and fatal misfortunes.

!!Banana Joe
-->Voiced by Rupert Degas (season 1) & Hugo Harold-Harrison (season 2)

A constantly jovial and clownish [[AnthropomorphicFood banana.]]

* AnnoyingLaugh
* {{Autocannibalism}}: It's mentioned in "The Promise" that he had to eat part of himself to survive after getting left behind on a camping trip, so that's why he doesn't have feet.
* BerserkButton: Do not ruin his family's pen.
** Or ruin his school picture.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: Subverted, as even if you provoke his wrath he's too tiny, weak, and incompetent to really do anything.
* CatchPhrase: "I'm a banana."
* ClassClown: Constantly making jokes, but no one really thinks he's funny.
* NiceGuy: He forgives Gumball and Darwin for their numerous and unwarranted attempts at violent revenge "The Banana" and their horrible negligence in "The Promise".
* PungeonMaster: Most of his jokes consists of painful puns.

!!Bobert the Robot
-->Voiced by Kerry Shale

A socially-ignorant robot who wishes the other students would be his friends--when he's not busy being condescending toward them.

* AIIsACrapshoot: In "The Robot", he decides to steal Gumball's live. Conversely, turning super-obedient in "The Bet" made him a vicious LiteralGenie.
* CuteMachines
* DoesNotKnowHisOwnStrength: Gumball learns this the hard way when they play punchies.
* IJustWantToBeYou: Tries to become Gumball in "The Robot"
** KillAndReplace: Which inevitably resulted in trying to get rid of the real one.
* NoWaterproofingInTheFuture: He lost to a sprinkler.

* RobotKid
* TeachersPet: Considers himself to be this
* TransformingMecha: Capable of [[TelescopingRobot increasing his size]] into a fighting robot the size of a very large car.

!!Carmen the Cactus

* FatalAttraction: With Alan, as previously stated.
* SickeninglySweethearts: In "The Storm", she is sickeningly sweet with Alan much to their classmates' disgust.
* [[TheSmartGuy The Smart Girl]]: Carmen is one of the smartest girls in school according to the website.
* TertiarySexualCharacteristics: Averted. She has no distinguished trait that shows she's female.

!!Carrie Kruger
-->Voiced by Jessica [=McDonald=]

* AllWomenLoveShoes: [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] during "The Flower"
-->'''Jealousy:''' How many pairs of shoes do you need!? You don't even have feet!
* BigEater: Justified, considering she hasn't eaten since she became a ghost, but she'll eat until the body she possesses ''passes out''.
* CuteGhostGirl: Darwin sure seems to think so when he kissed her.
* DemonicPossession: She can possess someone's body by [[OrificeInvasion flying into their mouth and down their throat.]]
* [[EmoTeen Emo Tween]]: {{Lampshaded}} by Darwin.
* HairDecorations: Has a bow on the side of her head.
* TheHedonist: It's been so long since she's been able to do things like eating, that when she has a body, she'll immediately starting [[BigEater binge-eating]] [[ExtremeOmnivore absolutely anything]] (except, apparently, pickles).
* LuminescentBlush: When Darwin kissed her in "Halloween". Also in "The Coach" when she said that all the work-out made her feel alive.
* OurGhostsAreDifferent: In "Halloween" she claims she was ''[[ItRunsOnNonsensoleum born]]'' a ghost[[note]]Neither Gumball or Darwin could guess how that works.[[/note]] which means she stays in the living world and can be seen by anyone, even though other ghost can only come there on Halloween and are InvisibleToNormals. [[SeriesContinuityError Even though she had previously mentioned being alive before.]]
** There are... [[UnfortunateImplications one or two]] [[FridgeHorror ways that both]] [[AdultFear her stories are possible]].
* PeekABangs: Much like Gumball's whiskers, subject to FashionableAsymmetry and AmbidextrousSprite.
* PerpetualFrowner
-->'''Darwin''': Cool! I can finally do this! (kisses Carrie)
* ShoutOut: Her name is likely inspired by two famous horror characters: [[Literature/{{Carrie}} Carrie White]] and [[Franchise/ANightmareOnElmStreet Freddy Krueger]]

!!Clayton the Clay
-->Voiced by Rupert Degas (Season 1) & Max Cazier (Season 2)

* BadLiar[=/=]ConsummateLiar: An almost serial one at that.
* {{Claymation}}: He's literally a blob of clay.
* MeaningfulName
* PoisonousFriend: Plays this to Gumball and Darwin in "The Skull," though to their credit Gumball and Darwin figure out he's a bad influence on them almost right away and break it off with him... only for him to attempt to lie his way back into their good graces.
* VoluntaryShapeshifting: He can change into a lot of shapes, including other people (and fake their voices as well).

!!Hector Jötunheim
-->Voiced by Kerry Shale


* ArtEvolution: Sorta. In Season 1, originally the only thing that can be seen of him was usually just his feet due to him being too big to fit in the screen. Other body parts of his would occasionally be seen also but he never appeared in full body view. In Season 2, he still retains his original depiction but from time to time, his entire body would be shown in full view, most notably in "The Colossus".
* ADayInTheLimelight: In "The Colossus".
* TheGenericGuy: His mother was intentionally keeping him this way so he would never get emotional and go on a rampage.

-->Voiced by Rupert Degas (season 1) & Hugo Harold-Harrison (season 2)

* AmericanAccents: Southern.
* {{Cephalothorax}}
* GoodOlBoy: He's a jovial hick.
* MeaningfulName: He's a potato.

-->Voiced by Jessica [=McDonald=]

* BlindingBangs: She has these now in season 3.
* InformedAbility: [[FreudianExcuse The reason for her bullying]] is because Ms. Simian held her back a year so she developed an extreme resentment for authority and her new classmates. You wouldn't know that due to her background appearances.
** The characters page on the official website describes her as Tina's sidekick, but the two have never shared any screen time together.
* MixAndMatchCritters: Has horns like a bull, but a lion's tail and the body of a human. Darwin describes her as "half-cow, half-troglodyte".
** Maybe she's a minotaur?
** And the "half-troglodyte" line was clearly just an insult.
** To make it weirder, her mother is a giant red cube and her father is probably the same species as her but with a pointy hair or hat with straight horns and without a tail.
* [[RedheadedBully Redheaded]] [[IncrediblyLamePun Bull]][[RedheadedBully y]]
* SillyWalk: She doesn't have knees, so she basically goose-steps when she walks.

!!Juke the Boombox
-->'''Voiced by:''' Beatbox Hobbit (in music mode), Hugo Harold-Harrison (in voice mode)

* BigOlUnibrow
* LineBoil
* TheUnintelligible: He speaks in beat box and as a foreign exchange student everyone assumes he's speaking a foreign language. He actually ''knows'' how to speak English fine, but when a switch on his head is in the wrong position he can only play music instead of talking. Since he can't reach the switch or tell anyone else, it's been stuck like that for a long time.

!!Leslie the Flower
-->Voiced by Kerry Shale

* AmbiguouslyGay: Mostly blatantly shown in "The Mustache", when Gumball's butt suddenly becomes incredibly muscular and Leslie just stares. In "The Pressure", he's shown hanging out with a group of girls throughout the episode, with his presence never being noted; the other male characters mention him when talking about "the girls", and wordlessly joins in their expressions of interest in the idea of watching or kissing boys.
-->'''Leslie:''' There's a lot of things you don't know about me, Gumball.
* TheDitz
* GenderBlenderName: Male, despite the name and appearance.
* {{Malaproper}}: In "The Words", much to Darwin's annoyance.
* StrawVegetarian: {{Inverted|Trope}}; as a plant, he refuses to eat vegetables and tries to bug Penny into ''only'' eating meat.

!!Masami the Cloud
-->Voiced by Jessica [=McDonald=]

* AxCrazy: In "The Storm".
* AlphaBitch: Acts this way toward the other girls.
* GlowingEyesOfDoom: When [[{{Yandere}} angry]].
* JerkAss: The most consistently bitchy character in the show. Yes, even more than Tina.
* [[ManipulativeBastard Manipulative Bitch]]: Forces Darwin to be her boyfriend and then fake-cries to make him feel guilty when he tries to break it off.
* PetTheDog: In "The Tape", she lends her cell phone to Tobias so he can call his mother. She missed the point of his pick-up line, but it was uncharacteristically nice of her.
* RichBitch: {{Lampshaded}} by Darwin in "The Words".
* SpoiledBrat: Daughter of the rainbow factory owner and has a smug sense of superiority.
* WeatherManipulation: Can pull off minor things like raining and lightning but can generate a stormy tornado around herself when really angry.
* [[spoiler: {{Yandere}}]]: [[spoiler:For Alan in ''The Storm''. Until she remembers he's "such a wet cheeseball".]]

** SuddenlyVoiced: In season two.

!!Penny Fitzgerald
-->Voiced by Teresa Gallagher

* ArtEvolution: Went from [[ this]] during season 1, to what you see above in season 2.
* TheCheerleader: Averted.
* GenreBlindness: In "The Storm", when Alan is in danger as [[spoiler:Masami becomes {{Yandere}} and literally becomes a living tornado which abducts him]], Carmen tells Gumball to save him only for Penny to stop him and decides to do it herself because Gumball made Alan and Carmen's relationship complicated despite him trying to fix it. But because she is not the protagonist nor the character focus of the episode which are Alan and Carmen, she gets hurt for her effort and changes her mind for Gumball to do his part.
* MixAndMatchCritters: Penny is a peanut with antlers.
* NiceGirl: Popular, cheerleader, and sweet as can be.
* NotSoAboveItAll: The end of "The Flower" implies she's capable of the same illogical jealously that Gumball had been going through.
* [[SmittenTeenageGirl Smitten Tweenage Girl]]: With Gumball.
* TwiceShy: With Gumball. Their feelings are mutual, but both struggle to confess to each other.

!!Sarah G. Lato
-->Voiced by Jessica [=McDonald=]

* BlushSticker
* TheCatCameBack: PlayedForLaughs in "The Fan".
* HugeSchoolgirl: With the exception of Tina, she's one of the tallest girls at the school.

* VerbalTic: She tends to repeat the last word she hears.

!!Teri the Paper Bear
-->Voiced by Teresa Gallagher

* BearsAreBadNews: Not the case even if she wanted it to be, as she has about the strength you'd expect out of a crumpled piece of paper.
* FaceDoodling: Does this to herself at times when necessary (e.g. "The Virus", where she draws tears under her eyes to represent crying, and later draws a surgical mask over her mouth). Her paper body gives her the capability of erasing face doodles quite easily.
* IllGirl: Or at least that what she's worried about being.
* PaperPeople: A crumpled-up one.
* PunnyName: Being made of paper, she is very "tear-y".
* TerrifiedOfGerms: Much to the annoyance of the school nurse.

!!Tina Rex
-->Voiced by Dan Russell (Season 1) Stefan Ashton Frank (Season 2)


* ArtEvolution: In Season 1, she originally had a cartoon-like design similar to the old T-Rex depictions. In Season 2, she is given a more realistic design similar to modern T-Rex depictions.
* TheBully
* FluffyTheTerrible
* EverythingsBetterWithDinosaurs: Not the case, especially not when her dad gets involved...
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: She shows shades of this from time to time.
** [[spoiler: JerkassFacade: It is revealed in "The Fight" that she isn't really a bully, she just acts that way because of her scary father and the fact that it is what people expect when they see a T-rex that [[DoesNotKnowHisOwnStrength Does Not Know Her Own Strength.]]]]
* LarynxDissonance: Has a very deep male voice, due to being a Tyrannosaurus.
* [[MeaningfulName Meaningful]]/PunnyName: T.(na) Rex the T. Rex
* TyrannosaurusRex

!!Tobias Wilson
-->Voiced by Rupert Degas (season 1) & Hugo Harold-Harrison (season 2)

* {{Cephalothorax}}
* DumbJock: Tobias isn't very smart.
* JerkJock: Although he is nicer after "The Third".
* NotAZombie: Inverted in "The Joy", as being ignored by all the girls with the happiness virus that makes you rainbows left him the only one note infected, but his technicolor appearance made Miss Simian think he was anyway (possibly that's why none of the male infected bothered him either).
* ShoutOut: Him and his sister are named after characters in ''Literature/{{Animorphs}}''.
* SmallNameBigEgo: Claims to be well-built when he's clearly very scrawny.
* StalkerWithACrush: To Penny in "The Knight".

!!William the Eyeball

* [[spoiler:CreatorCameo: His "voice" (actually his internal monologue) was provided by Mic Graves, the same person who directs most of the show's episodes.]]

* {{Flight}}
* [[spoiler:IJustWantToHaveFriends]]
* TheInformant: For Ms. Simian
* [[spoiler:MindOverMatter: He has telekinesis that's strong enough to crush lockers and smash down walls.]]
* {{Oculothorax}}: An eyeball with wings, though he can still blink with fleshy eyelids [[SuddenAnatomy that sudden appear when he needs them]].
* [[spoiler:TheSpeechless: He can't speak because he has NoMouth, but until the end of "The Voice" he didn't know that and assumed everyone was just ignoring him.]]
* TeachersPet

[[folder: Other Adults]]

!!Principal Nigel Brown
-->Voiced by Lewis [=MacLeod=] (Season 1) Stefan Ashton Frank (Season 2)

* BerserkButton: Apparently he does not take cheating on a math test well and will give whoever he catches cheating a spring break's worth of detention.
* CartoonCreature: "Furry slug" is the most accurate description of what exactly he's supposed to be.
* HumiliationConga: He's quite prone to these. It first happens to him in "The Mystery" where he was slammed with a door [[spoiler:by Mrs. Simian]], leaving him dizzy and causing him to fall down the stairs, covering himself in toilet paper, then smashed into Penny's painting and falling into some burning chemicals, causing him to fall down MORE stairs and wrapping himself in more toilet paper, then finally landing inside Gumball's locker.
** Happens again in "The Meddler', where Gumball crashes into him and he spills his hot coffee all over his face. He douses the coffee with a can of paint, burning his eyes; he washes off the paint with chlorine for the pool, burning off all his hair; and he finishes by neutralizing the chlorine with fertilizer, painfully growing his hair back. He is unscathed by the end of it, but he gives Gumball detention for potentially damaging his face.
** Happens in "The Sock", though at a smaller scale. In this episode he has his head set on fire, and later he throws himself out of a window to "rescue" Miss Simian.
** In "The Apology" Miss Simian repeatedly trashes his office in rage every time she fails to get Gumball and Darwin in trouble.
* PhonyDegree: In teaching, which is the subject of a future season 3 episode aptly titled "The Phony".
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: In "The Apology" he refuses to punish Gumball or Darwin unless he's given solid evidence and he threatens to fire Miss Simian if she keeps trying to frame them, in spite of his personal feelings for her.
* RedOniBlueOni: Blue Oni to Miss Simian's Red Oni.
* TookALevelInJerkass: In "The Lesson".

-->'''Voiced by:''' Dan Russell

* TheCobblersChildrenHaveNoShoes[=/=]{{Hypocrite}}: She's in charge of physical fitness and goes on about how necessary it is, yet but she's in such terrible shape (literally and figuratively speaking) that she gets exhausting running even the shortest distance. [[spoiler:On the other hand, her daughter is very physically fit.]]
* LadyLooksLikeADude: Despite the voice and gender-neutral-to-masculine appearance, Coach is actually a woman, something Gumball and Darwin didn't realize until the end of her introductory episode. [[spoiler:Specifically, she's Jamie's mom.]]
* LarynxDissonance: Like Tina, she is female but voiced by a man--the ''[[TalkingToHimself same]]'' man, in fact.
* MasculineGirlFeminineBoy[=/=]TinyGuyHugeGirl: She's a giant red cube with a man's voice; her husband is a tiny green man with an effeminate voice. This may or [[InterspeciesRomance may not]] be a case of BizarreSexualDimorphism.
* RunningGag: Trying (and failing) to whistle.

!!Mr. Fitzgerald

-->Voiced by Kerry Shale

* ButtMonkey: So, so much.
* CartoonCreature: [[!/benbocquelet/status/171333727501295616 He's suppose to be a rock-man]], but his design makes this slightly hard to tell.
* HumiliationConga: Goes through one at the hands of Gumball and Darwin of all people, but he gets better.
* ThatManIsDead: Lazy Larry.
* WhyDoYouKeepChangingJobs: Runs pretty much every shop in town. {{Lampshaded}} in the "The Finale" where it is explained that because of the Wattersons' constant antics, he has to take on more than one job in order to pay for all the damage they caused for him.

* MoodSwinger: Can go from an easy-going hippie to an enraged maniac in a snap.

* PissTakeRap: Has one about honesty; while dressed in a ''bear costume''.
* ScareEmStraight: Does this to Gumball and Darwin by showing them a grotesque diagram of the soul of a liar. This can also be applied to his sock puppet, the Silence Snake, whom he uses to scream at people and shock them into shutting up.

* {{Tuckerization}}: Named after a friend of the show's creator that also works in animation--the same one that made his character design, in fact.
* UnmovingPlaid: His shirt.

!!Miss Lucy Simian
-->Voiced by Sandra Searles Dickinson (season 1) & Hugo Harold-Harrison (season 2)

* ActionSurvivor: in "The Joy"
** [[spoiler: FinalGirl]]
* ArtEvolution: In Season 1, she was originally [[ a rigid blocky character]] with a rather prominent shade of gray, and had a polka-dotted dress. In Season 2, she is given more color, a completely pink dress, a more rounded body, and some slight noticeable FanDisservice JigglePhysics in her much more saggier boobs.
* AxCrazy: In "The Apology".
* EverythingsBetterWithMonkeys: Eh, close enough.
* FanDisservice: What her body shows.
* ItsAllAboutMe: Her mug even says, "I Love Myself"
* JerkWithAHeartOfJerk: [[spoiler: In "The Ape", she was a complete JerkAss to Nicole when she was young and would even use Gumball and Darwin just to get the Teacher Award. She was given a choice to either get the form with the signature on the car and fall out of the bridge or get off the car and redeem herself by staying friends with the Wattersons. [[IgnoredEpiphany She went "Nah!" to the latter and does the former, which leads to her fall]].]]
** And yet she has also shown to not be COMPLETELY heartless as she [[spoiler: gave up her attempts to frame or catch Gumball and Darwin when they attempted to ACTUALLY get in trouble to save her dignity, her job and her relationship, and even attempted to clean up the mess they made to keep them out of trouble. Even when Darwin COMPLETELY milks the fact that she's actually saying sorry for her behaviour, she just chuckles. It's a surprisingly sweet moment for such a mean character.]]

* HonestJohnsDealership: He absolutely refuses to give refunds for anything under any circumstances, and also once sold a paper shredder claiming it was a game console.
* {{Jerkass}}: He makes Laurence admit it was ''his'' fault that there was traffic which caused him to be late (and probably make him say it like he means it). Then he hangs up on him.
* KillerRabbit: Subverted; despite what Needlemeyer insists, he's physically capable of nothing more than slight annoyance. The person he was attacking just happened to be a complete wuss.

* TheNapoleon

!!Sal Left Thumb
-->Voiced by Rupert Degas

* AmericanAccents: Has a thick Bronx-accent.

!!Granny Jojo
-->Voiced by Sandra Searles Dickinson

* DeadpanSnarker
* GrossUpCloseUp
* MiniatureSeniorCitizen: In the first season she was noticeably shorter than Richard or Nicole. [[ArtEvolution Her second season design]] is barely taller than Anais.
* MyBelovedSmother: She thinks a mother has to protect her family from everything [[ScareEmStraight by making them scared of everything.]] Richard's such a FatIdiot because she had him sit around eating all day, never learning how to do anything himself.
* TheNicknamer: Calls Gumball "the blue one" Darwin "walking fish" and "fish kid".
* ObnoxiousInLaws: To Nicole in "The Authority"
* ScrewPolitenessImASenior: She's very blunt and she made Anais carry a suitcase that's clearly too heavy for her.
