Characters / Ruby Gloom

    Main Characters 
Ruby Gloom
"Now, what excuse—I mean, legitimate reason is there for a party today?"

  • Ambiguously Human: See below.
  • Catch Phrase: "Look on the bright side."
  • Creepy Child: In a sense, she's a 6 year old girl who has Gothic and creepy tastes and interests.
    • Cheerful Child: Despite the above, she's rather chipper and optimistic.
  • Every Proper Lady Should Curtsey: Does this when complimented.
  • Hollywood Tone-Deaf: Outside of the musical episode, she, in her own words, can't carry a tune in a bucket.
  • Living Doll: Hinted at.
  • The Magic Touch: Not elaborated on, and may be a coincidence, but a number of objects made by Ruby have inexplicably come to life in some way. To name few there's Mr. Buns, a snowman, and we can only assume she was the one who sewed the patchwork heart Venus swallowed.
  • Nice Girl: She's kind and willingly helpful to all of her friends.
  • The Noseless: Played with. It's not noticeable outright, but she is able to sneeze, and have something to put a clothespin on to block bad smells.
  • Perky Goth
  • The Pollyanna: It takes a lot to make her angry. In fact, the only time she was ever angry was in "Bad Hare Day" after she found out Bunny was stealing from them and trying to make Doom look bad.
    • Also, at the end of "Gloomer Rumor" she became extremely annoyed and exasperated when Frank and Len continued to believe she was dead.
  • Red-Headed Hero
  • Ship Tease: With Skullboy
  • Team Mom
  • Youthful Freckles

Doom Kitty
* violin chord*

"Hey, Ruby, I'm bummed! I wanted to do some aerial routines with Squig, but it's kind of hard without windshield wipers...!"


"My cousin was struck by lightning. Twice."
"Well, it couldn't possibly happen to you, too. What are the chances?"
"Fairly good! It's genetic. The electrical current is drawn to the high lead content in our blood, and then BOOM! ...people use you to charge their batteries."

Skull Boy
"I'm an artist, Ruby! It's in my bones!"

Frank & Len
"Say your amp's not working. What's the first thing you do?"
"My amp's not busted."
"Exactly. You deny it."
"I'm tellin' you, it's not busted!"
"That's denial."
"Hey, did you bust my amp?!"

Mr. Buns

  • Big Eater: He's often seen next to empty trays of food or stuffed to bursting.
  • Companion Cube
  • Living Toys: Mr. Buns is a strange example. The other characters treat him as if he's alive (except for Misery), and he seems to do things when he's not on-screen... but whenever he's on-screen, he's just a lifeless sock-bunny. In the most extreme case, he's fencing with Poe from just off-screen, only for the sword to drop the moment he's visible in the frame.
  • Offscreen Teleportation: See above.


Scaredy Bat

Boo Boo

    Minor Characters

Mr. White and Mr. White



Mr. Mummbles
