    Alison Sandra Gator 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/alison_sandra_gator.png
Voiced by: Sandra Searles Dickinson
Debut: Season 2, "The Fridge"

An lonely elderly crocodile lady with a pet cat named Martin who she believes is a “real boy”. She is usually kind of mean. She is pretty desperate for love because she’s been saving herself for marriage her whole life. She always feeds pigeons because she’s an old lady.



  • Crazy Cat Lady: She has a cat named Martin and in “The Butterfly”, she says she has more cats.
  • Freudian Excuse: She acts like a jerk sometimes but it may be because she’s so lonely.
  • Fully Dressed Cartoon Animal
  • Funny Animal: A crocodile.
  • Iconic Item: A black cane. Like all the other old people with canes, she doesn’t even need it.
  • Jerkass: Generally quite acerbic to random people she runs into.
  • A Lizard Named "Liz": Her name is a pun on "alligator", even though she's vocal about actually being a crocodile.
  • No Name Given: She was introduced early season 2, and her name wasn’t known until four seasons later in early season 6.
  • Nice Hat: Always wears a green took. In “The Uncle” Gumball takes it by jumping on her head.
  • Tuckerization: Sandra is her voice actress’ first name.

    Banana Bob and Banana Barbara 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/the_bananas.png
Banana Bob voiced by: Mic Graves
Banana Barbara voiced by: Sandra Searles Dickinson
Debut: Season 1, "The Responsible"

Banana Joe's parents, two other bananas.



  • Accessory-Wearing Cartoon Animal: Barbara wears a polka-dot ribbon. Bizarrely, Bob's mustache was shown in "The Shell" to actually be a detachable accessory.
  • Alliterative Name: Both of their names and surname both have "B".
  • Anthropomorphic Food: Both are bananas.
  • Bumbling Dad: Banana Bob, of course. Barbara is also a Bumbling Mom, since she's nothing smart, either.
  • The Chew Toy: Barbara is subject to a large amount of prat-falls in "The Mothers", many of them caused by her extreme clumsiness.
    • Banana Bob also gets injured a lot, from Richard hitting him in the face in "The Oracle" to getting run over and left behind in the hijacking plan as seen on "The Bus", and eating himself alive in “The Line”. Somehow’ in the latter two episodes, he was completely splattered but survived.
  • Hidden Depths: Banana Bob used to be a musician. And a bank robber.
  • Look-Alike Lovers: They're basically identical save their Tertiary Sexual Characteristics, as seen in "The Shell" where it's revealed that Banana Bob's mustache is detachable and, without it, his voice is very high and girl-like.
  • Mad Oracle: In "The Shell" it's implied that Banana Barbara paints portraits that predict the future. "The Oracle" shows that she's been doing it for years, though Banana Joe never noticed because all of them were of the Watterson family. And any time she's seen making one, she stares around blankly.
  • Obliviously Evil: Banana Bob mentions in "The Oracle" that people threw their hands up and gave him money any time he put on a balaclava (or "bananaclava" as he calls it) and walked into a bank, not understanding that those people thought he was robbing them.
  • Species Surname: Like their son, "Banana" is their family name even though it's their first.
  • Tertiary Sexual Characteristics: Barbara has eyelashes, lipstick, and a bow while Bob has a mustache. In "The Shell," Banana Bob's mustache is detachable and the only thing keeping his voice masculine, which carries some odd implications.

    The Copycats 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/maxresdefault_2_3.jpg
Chi Chi voiced by: Jacob Hopkins
Ribbit voiced by: Terrell Ransom, Jr.
The mother voiced by: Teresa Gallagher
The father voiced by: Dan Russell
Debut: Season 5, "The Copycats"

A family of goats and a frog who relentlessly copy the Watterson family, putting the results online as The Wonderful World of Chi Chi to make ad revenue. They have no equivalent of Anais, though. They're a parody of a series of Chinese commercials, for a brand of goat milk called Miracle Star, whose mascots and scenes blatantly plagiarize The Amazing World of Gumball.



  • Allegorical Character: They don't make much sense as literal characters, they're more like personifications of plagiarism, especially the Miracle Star characters they're based on.
  • Captain Ersatz: They're stand-ins for the family from the Miracle Star commercials who themselves are ripoffs of the Watterson family—essentially Lawyer Friendly Cameos of very lawyer unfriendly characters. In the storyboard, the copycats just were the characters from Miracle Star, unaltered in name or appearance.
  • Diabolus ex Nihilo: We don't know anything about them personally except that they're trying to make money and are almost incapable of original thought. Why do they look almost identical to the Wattersons? Did they alter their own appearances or were they already a bunch of Identical Strangers? Are they a real family, or just actors? How do they know everything the Wattersons do so they can copy them? Within the universe of the show, their existence is only really justified by the Rule of Funny.
  • Fully Dressed Cartoon Animal: All of them.
  • Funny Animal: Mom, Dad, and Chi Chi are goats, DELETED is an unknown animal, and Ribbit is a frog.
  • Greed: The only thing we know about their real personalities, rather than their affected ones copying the Wattersons, is that they want money and they're not sharing it with the guys they make it off.
  • Hoist by Their Own Petard: To drive off the Copycats, the Wattersons start doing increasingly dangerous things in the hope that the Copycats will either give up or off themselves trying to replicate them. This culminates in them attempting a stunt so dangerous that it's doubtful that even they would survive it, but they escape at the last second thanks entirely due to Anais. The Copycats intentionally removed their Anais counterpart, however, so when they tried to ripoff the stunt they're unable to save themselves in time and they plummet to their fiery, brutal de- er, severe maiming.
  • Intentional Engrish for Funny: Their website is written in Chinese, and the Wattersons can only read it by putting through a translator. This leads to them laughing at the translations.
    Chi-Chi: This goat is the attention of the center. He is serious, don't you trust him? A heavy party-love hero with powerful personality defectives.
    Ribbit: This frog is a frog, but why? He is so green and mighty you wouldn't trust him with lunch. What's that? Yes, he is determined.
    Dad: I'm a tired lazy belly male lurking inside sofa. Watch him obnoxious. Laugh and spoil yourself.
    Mom: Wowee - What a mother. Who cares if she is annoying? You?
    DELETED: Woman no right to celebrate in republic of people.
  • Oddball Doppelgänger: They're pretty much the Watterson family with slight alterations to make them look like different species. Of course, the real reason they're like this is they're a parody of ripoff characters in a real-life Shoddy Knockoff Product.
  • Meaningful Name: The ripoff of Gumball is a goat named Chichi, which is Japanese for milk. The work he's parodying is a character named "Kiki" from a goat milk advertisement.
  • Parody Names: Chi Chi and Ribbit's names are plays on Kiki and Gugutranslation , the Miracle Star ripoffs of Gumball and Darwin.
  • Politically Incorrect Villain: It's implied they didn't copy Anais because they figured their videos would be more profitable with one less female character. (The real Miracle Star lacked one mostly because of the one-child policy, along with general Values Dissonance regarding desirability of female children.)
  • Significant Double Casting: They share voice actors with the Wattersons.
  • Unnamed Parent: The children's names are found listed on their website, but it just calls the parents "mom" and "dad". (For the curious, their Miracle Star equivalents are called Chun Ni and Miao Cheng Gong, respectively.)
  • Unperson: Disturbingly, the website implies a little sister existed in some form, but was removed. There's a blurred picture of a character with Anais' silhouette that's crossed out and marked "DELETED".
  • Villain Has a Point: When Gumball introduces himself to Chi Chi, Chi Chi responds back with the same phrase except with his name instead of Gumball's. Gumball, unsurprisingly, goes ballistic but Chi Chi points out that's how you respond to someone's greeting.

    Felicity Parham 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/orange_woman.png
Voiced by: Sandra Searles Dickinson
Debut: Season 2, "Christmas"

A vaguely humanoid blob colored orange who is very wealthy and arrogant.



  • Abusive Parent: Despite normally spoiling Billy, she's treated him with extreme neglect at certain points when she's too caught up in herself to pay attention. She once even shoved Billy into her car's trunk because she mix up him and her groceries.
  • Accessory-Wearing Cartoon Animal: Sometimes, she wears blue high heels.
  • Action Mom: Not nearly to Nicole's level, but Felicity does put up a good fight when she pisses off her rival(Though Nicole might have been holding back), and starts a scary police chase when she briefly becomes a crook.
  • Ascended Extra: She and her son started as Recurring Extras throughout season 2before that , then they got a skit in "The Extras" and major roles in "The Law", "The Egg" and "The Blame".
  • Ax-Crazy: She once stole a car, drove it through town, and threatened to kill the chief of police just because a cop didn't arrest someone for jaywalking.
  • Blue Orange Contrast: Her son is blue, while she's orange with blue lips.
  • Bullying the Dragon: In "The Egg", she has the nerve of calling Gumball, Anais and Darwin "disappointments" to Nicole. This leads Nicole to turn into a literal demon/dragon hybrid and start literally chewing her. After that, she keeps making comments about Nicole and Anais, to which Nicole keeps answering with violence.
  • Cartoon Creature
  • Fiery Redhead: If it counts as hair.
  • Foil: To Nicole. Nicole is a stern, tired and sometimes bossy mother, but she deeply loves her kids and everything she does is because she believes that to be the best for them. Felicity is a jerk Abusive Parent that berates everybody else and consider Anais as a playdate to Billy only after Nicole tells her about Anais far bigger achievements.
  • Hate Sink: A huge Jerkass and Abusive Parent with no redeeming qualities. She dedicates the entirety of "The Egg" to trying to make Nicole understand that she and her kids are just below her level.
  • Hypocrite: Believes to be above the Wattersons, even though "The Extras" show her driving through a wall and hitting herself with a shovel just to get away from Billy and in "The Law" she goes berserk and tries to actually kill the police chief with an ice cream cone.
  • Iconic Item: She sometimes wears blue high heels.
  • Jerkass Has a Point: While her assessment of Nicole and her family is horrendously classist, she is right about two things: First, Nicole really did miss out on higher education to live with Richard, to her financial detriment (although that was as much because her parents drove her away). Second, the play date between Anais and Billy was indeed a transparent and rather pathetic attempt at social climbing on Nicole's part.
  • Knight Templar Parent: She is this especially in "The Blame".
  • Moral Guardian: She tried to ban video games in Elmore and go after Pop music next.
  • "The Reason You Suck" Speech: Gives a long spiel to Nicole, trying to make understand that neither she nor her kids will ever succeed and there's nothing she can do about it. Doubles as Bullying the Dragon as it results in Nicole literally chewing her out.
  • There Are Two Kinds of People in the World: Those who got it and those who don't.
  • Rich Bitch: Felicity openly thinks her wealth either makes or proves that's she is better than anyone who's poorer than her. She outright tells Nicole that she has not "got it", thus her and her whole family will always be failures no matter what they do. Nicole responds appropriately.
  • Sphere Eyes
  • Stepford Smiler: Beneath her cheery demeanor, Felicity is bitchy at best and mentally deranged at worst. In her skit in "The Extras" when she got tired of Billy's pestering, she crashed her car into their house and knocked herself out with a shovel so she didn't have to listen to him. In "The Law," the sight of Gumball not being stopped by the Doughnut Sheriff (who was fired) for jaywalking enrages her so much that she immediately figures law and order doesn't exist anymore, hijacks Larry's ice cream truck, leaving her son behind, and plows through Elmore until she reaches the police department and threatens to kill the Chief of Police with an ice cream cone. "The Egg" is pretty much an entire episode of her making incredibly rude and pompous remarks about The Wattersons while barely trying to keep her cheerfulness at bay.
  • Tuckerization: Her last name comes from one of the show's writers, Joe Parham.
  • Unnamed Parent: Until "The Egg", Felicity's name was never stated.

    Gary Hedges 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/gary_hedges.png
Voiced by: Unknown (Season 1) Dan Russell (Season 2 onwards)
Debut: Season 1, "The DVD"

The Watterson’s neighbor. He is constantly badly injured or suffers in other ways because of the Wattersons. They do not know his name, calling him “The Neighbor”. He is a purple elderly moose man. He also is the mailman, a bus driver, and apparently (according to “The List”, “The Mystery”, and “The Wand”, works some job at Elmore Junior High.



  • Butt-Monkey: One of the biggest in the later seasons. In “The Neighbor” alone, the episode that centers around him, his house is blown up, but before that, he is run over by a train!
  • Fully Dressed Cartoon Animal
  • Funny Animal: A moose.
  • Iconic Item: A cane that he doesn’t even need, like Marvin, Alison, Louie, Betty, and Donald. He also wears a blue hat when he is the mailman.
  • New Job as the Plot Demands: He is a bus driver, school bus driver, works some job at Elmore Junior High besides being a bus driver, an advertiser, a mailman, and delivers newspapers.

  • Nice Hat: He has a hat he wears normally, and another hat he wears when he’s doing his mailman job.

  • The Reveal: In “The Neighbor, it is revealed he was in witness protection, and some secret agents tried to hunt him down and kill him, so he used a fake name (Gary Hedges, his real name is Harry Gedges).
  • Ungrateful Bastard: In “The Nuisance”, he wants the Wattersons out of Elmore even though Nicole saved his life in “The Nest”.
  • Witness Protection: He was in witness protection because he testified against some bad people in court.
  • Would Hit a Girl: In "The Schooling", he hits Carmen's Mother with a chair during the Black Friday sale scrum.

    • Steve is a construction worker, and crane operator.
  • Older Than They Look: The gray one was in a flashback to Betty and Donald's marriage which means he is about their age, and they are in their 70s.
  • Series Continuity Error: Hank states in “The Butterfly” that he has a wife. note  Although in “The Parking”, Anais says he doesn’t have a wife and is single, noticing the lack of a wedding ring. Also, in “The Disaster”, after Rob manipulates Nicole and Richard into divorcing she is seen dating him. Although he could have simply not chosen to wear his wedding ring, and he could have been dating Nicole because Rob used the remote, or because he cheated on her.
  • Sphere Eyes
  • Those Two Guys: Hank and the gray man.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: Hank and the gray one seemed like hers in Season 2, and early Season 3, but in later seasons they seem like really nice people, even if creepy.

    Patrick Fitzgerald 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/200px-pennysfather_2561.png
Voiced by: Dan Russell
Debut: Season 1, "The DVD"

Penny's father, another living peanut with antlers. Is very overprotective of his daughter (when she was in her shell), especially when it comes to her being romantically involved with Gumball. Since "The Shell", Patrick has loosened up, but "The Apprentice" and "The Spoiler" show that he still has qualms over it.



  • Accessory-Wearing Cartoon Animal: Normally wears only sandals with socks under them. When at work he also wears a hardhat and when jogging he replaces the sandals with tennis shoes and adds sweatbands.
  • Black Bead Eyes: Like his daughter, his eyes look like this, but actually seem to be holes in his shell.
  • Butt-Monkey: In the episodes where Gumball unintentionally torments him like “The Knights”, and “The Apprentice”.
  • Cartoon Creature: Under his shell.
  • Character Development: He was incredibly overprotective of his daughter, and didn't care much for Gumball. After "The Shell", he starts letting Penny do her own thing more often (even if he still feels the need to eavesdrop on conversations between her and Gumball), and while still having a bit of animosity toward Gumball, pulls back more often.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: Gumball, Darwin, and Nicole run through his backyard in "The DVD", when he wouldn't get a speaking role until "The Date" later that season.
  • Fat Idiot: Subverted. Mr. Fitzgerald is scarily on the ball when it comes to parenting, and seems to be a very authoritative and strict person, despite his size - which, given what the Fitzgeralds are like under their shells, may not be indicative of his weight anyway.
  • Large and in Charge: The biggest in the Fitzgerald household.
  • The One Guy: He's the only male Fitzgerald.
  • Only Sane Man: Has a justified grudge against the Wattersons, and Gumball in particular, but is unusually quick to put it aside as events dictate. Was pretty much the only Elmore resident who was willing to work with the Wattersons in some way during the events of "The Finale" (by taking a fall in a "Dad Fight" between him and Richard, as things had clearly gotten well out of hand with the crowd and all).
  • Overprotective Dad: He refuses to let Penny see Gumball after his family makes a bad impression in "The Knights", and flat-out refuses to even let her say anything about it. In "The Kids", when Gumball's voice sounds like a squeaky teenager due to puberty and Patrick thinks it's a prank call, he gives Gumball (whom he mistakes for somebody else) fair warning to back down or suffer the consequences. "The Shell" implies a lot of this is because their whole family are secretive about what they're like under their shells, but this ends up backfiring and making Penny feel ashamed after she leaves her shell. Since "The Shell," however, Patrick hasn't been as overprotective or as antagonistic to Gumball: In "The Spoiler," he still feels the need to eavesdrop over Gumball and Penny's phone conversation, but he's notably less hostile towards Gumball than he was before and actually feels bad about revealing a major plot point in "The Screamening".
  • Papa Wolf: To Penny. The fact that she likes Gumball doesn't help. However, as of "The Shell", when Gumball called him out on hurting Penny's feelings when she was freaking out over her new form, then consoled him and told him that "parenting is hard" and went through hell to get Penny back to her default form and back to her father, Patrick has loosened up a bit.
  • Ugly Guy, Hot Wife: His wife isn't fat like he is, though he seems to be in much better shape than Richard. He is just bulky, not fat. He is actually physicslly fit as he jogs frequently and is very strong and works as a construction worker.
  • Unnamed Parent: His given name (Patrick) wasn't stated until "The Shell". The same episode played with it by Gumball repeatedly calling him some variation of "Robert", when the audience would have no idea that he was wrong.

    Judith Fitzgerald 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mrs_fitzgerald_season_1_hd.png
Voiced by Maria Teresa Creasey
Debut: Season 1, "The DVD"
Penny's mother and Patrick's wife, a living peanut with antlers like them, looking like Penny if she grew up never breaking from her shell. Unlike her husband, she doesn't mind Gumball being around her daughter.
  • Accessory-Wearing Cartoon Animal: Normally wears only cowboy boots.
  • Black Bead Eyes: Like her daughter, her eyes look like this, but actually seem to be holes in her shell.
  • Cartoon Creature: Under her shell.
  • Cloud Cuckoo Lander: She is implied to be one.
  • Hopeless with Tech: Gumball says she can't use any machines "The Romantic" which Penny agrees and even remarks about the time she brought a computer mouse to a vet because it wasn't working.
  • Odd Name Out: The only one in the family whose name doesn't begin with the letter P.
  • Shipper on Deck: In "The Knights" and "The Shell", she gave Penny permission to visit Gumball, despite Patrick banning him, meaning that she supports them as a couple.
  • Too Dumb to Live: During "The Gripes" she mistakes Gumball and Darwin for homeless kids and tries to help them out. Her generosity goes as far as to giving them one of her kidneys which Gumball insists she needs to keep.
  • Ugly Guy, Hot Wife: In a manner of speaking, she's thinner than Patrick. Though they look pretty similar.
  • Unnamed Parent: Only named in "The Transformation", halfway through the sixth season. She was the last Fitzgerald to be named.

    The Chimera 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/partychimera24.jpg
Voiced by: Simon Lipkin
Debut: Season 3, "The Friend"

A large, strange creature made of many different parts (mostly Lego bricks, a Barbie doll leg, a plastic shark's head, and a leg from an action figure of The Thing from The Fantastic Four) who first appeared on the season three episode "The Friend". He pretended to be an imaginary friend created by Anais, Darwin, and Gumball but was actually a creation of a lonely toymaker who he outlived.



    Mrs. Jötunheim 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/hecsmom.png
Voiced by: Sandra Searles Dickinson
Debut: Season 2, "The Colossus"

Hector's mother, a grumpy troll witch who has to keep her son calm to keep him from destroying Elmore.


  • Blue-Collar Warlock: She is a rather comical mixture of a traditional witch (she lives in a cave, uses a Magic Cauldron, knows about magic spells, and flies on a broom) and an everyday person (she goes into town like everyone else, she works as a custodian, and she has a son in middle school).
  • Cartoon Creature: A troll witch.
  • Creepy Shadowed Undereyes: She's got heavy lines under her eyes.
  • A Day In The Lime Light: "The Sorcerer" is the first episode to give her a major role without Hector also playing an important role.
  • Expy: Her character design is heavily based on Yubaba.
  • Fully Dressed Cartoon Animal
  • Good Is Not Nice: Mrs. Jötunheim is fairly unpleasant to talk to, but is the main thing keeping Hector from destroying the town and helps Gumball from the Snatcher in "The Mirror" without asking for anything in return.
  • Huge Guy, Tiny Girl: According to Hector, his dad is even taller than him, while Mrs. Jötunheim is very small.
  • Iconic Item: Her witch broom and magic wand.
  • Interspecies Romance: Her husband is stated to be a giant even bigger than Hector, implying she's a member of some Witch Species, rather than a giant that shrank with old age. And she's not even as big as a human.
  • Jerk Ass: Usually pretty rude and unpleasant.
  • Miniature Senior Citizen: Even Gumball towers over her.
  • My Beloved Smother: She's extremely controlling of everything Hector sees and does, even vetoing his online friend invitations and heavily censoring his comics. However, this isn't to protect Hector, it's to keep him calm, protecting everyone else from him.
  • Senior Creep: She doesn't look very beautiful (even with makeup as seen in "The Castle") and is at first depicted as absurdly strict towards Hector, and in "The Castle" she implies the rest of Elmore doesn't take too kindly towards her looks. She might not actually be elderly, though.
  • Witch Classic: She turns out to really be a witch, as Gumball had guessed, and has a lot of the visual traits, including discolored warty skin, a big nose, and a Witch Broom (though she also has regular brooms).
  • Younger Than They Look: She looks ancient and decrepit, but claims to only be 28 in "The Singing". Considering her son is twelve, she probably isn't nearly as old as she looks, though 28 is a somewhat dubious claim.

    Mayor of Elmore 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/elmore_mayor.png
Voiced by: Garrick Hagon
Debut: Season 5, "The Nuisance"

The mayor of Elmore, who looks like a human but with a horribly oversized head.


  • Ambiguously Human: He looks like a human, but is 2D animated and has extremely exaggerated proportions.
  • Corrupt Politician: In private, he's flat-out admitted to putting people with money ahead of his electorate.
  • Gonk: His enormous head has a creepy level of detail to it.
  • Icy Blue Eyes: His eyes are light blue, and contribute to a cold stare that betrays his constant smiling.
  • Mayor Pain: The mayor tries to force the Wattersons out of town for being a public nuisance. While this is morally questionable, his actual reasons turn out to be far worse: Them holding down property values is all that prevents a plan to gentrify the town into a gated community, displacing most of its current residents.
  • No Celebrities Were Harmed: He bears more than a passing resemblance to Donald Trump. In “The Nuisance”, he also wants to “deport” the Wattersons. The frayed blond hair also gives him some resemblance to Boris Johnson, a British politician who was Mayor of London (where The Amazing World of Gumball was produced) for most of the show's history.
  • No Name Given: Never called anything but "Mayor".
  • No-Neck Chump: His head appears to be mounted directly on his body.
  • Token Human: Most likely, he is.

    Laurence "Larry" Needlemeyer 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/larrys2image.png
Voiced by: Kerry Shale
Debut: Season 1, "The DVD"

A skinny man made of rock who works many different jobs throughout Elmore, at the risk of losing his sanity and putting up with The Wattersons' antics.



  • Barrier Maiden: Similar to Alan, he holds so many jobs that his continued employment is required to keep Elmore's economy (and society as a whole) from spontaneously collapsing.
  • Cartoon Creature: He's supposed to be a rock-man, but his design makes this slightly hard to tell.
  • The Chew Toy: He can hardly make an appearance where something terrible doesn't happen to him — usually at the hands of the Watterson family.
  • Dude, Where's My Respect?: As revealed in "The Pizza," he holds down numerous jobs and works very hard at all of them...and despite it all, everyone in Elmore, especially the Wattersons, is an ungrateful jerk to him, to the extent that they barely acknowledge his existence as a person.
  • Foil: To Richard.
    • Larry has 38 jobs, and if he stops, society collapses and his heart stops from exaustion. Richard does not work at all, and if he does, the world ends.
    • Larry is very skinny while Richard is obese.
    • Richard has stayed with Nicole since he was 12, and is now married and has three children with her. Larry can never propose to Karen because something always happens.
  • Fully Dressed Cartoon Animal: Wears a shirt plus Long Pants.
  • Funny Schizophrenia: In "The Game", he takes a pizza being ordered to his own address from a Prank Call, then argues with himself over who pays for it, ultimately throwing the pizza in his own face.
    Larry: I think all these jobs are messing with my head.
  • Humiliation Conga: Goes through one at the hands of Gumball and Darwin in "The Laziest", as they get him fired while causing his car to be destroyed and girlfriend to dump him. He's back to normal by his next appearance.
  • New Job as the Plot Demands: Runs pretty much every shop in town and does a lot of other jobs as well that isn't already covered by other characters. 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. In "The Pizza", it turns out he's the only one in town doing many of these things (including pest control workernote , police station accountant, and roadside repairman), and if he goes, the town's economy falls.
  • Nice Guy: Larry is a very hard working and serious person, and can not be fooled easily. He keeps many jobs around Elmore, from being a store clerk to a cashier, and always does his best to be civil to his customers.
  • Nice Hat: Larry wears an orange, white, and red hat.
  • Noodle People: He is incredibly skinny, similar to Rob, Julius, Nicole, Gumball, Gary, Hexagon Lady, and Miss Simian.
  • Skewed Priorities: In "The Job." Despite Richard's new position as a pizza delivery boy threatening the very fabric of reality, Larry refuses to fire him on the grounds that "tearing apart the fabric of the universe is not a dismissable offense." When he discovers that Richard had been eating portions of the pizzas he was supposed to deliver and trying to hide it, then Larry fires him on the spot.
  • Stepford Smiler: As much as he smiles and as much of a Nice Guy he is, he's revealed to actually be very stressed, tired and perhaps angry on the inside.
  • That Man Is Dead: He used to be "Lazy Larry", the laziest person in Elmore, but after he lost that title to Richard he's been trying to get his life together and doesn't like being called "Lazy Larry" anymore.
  • Tragic Dropout: It's suggested in "The Schooling" that Larry is a dropout (or was at least a poor student) who takes many menial jobs to make up for being unqualified for one well-paying one.
  • Workaholic: Larry take all his jobs very seriously—mostly to distract himself from how he doesn't find any of them fulfilling.

    Mr. Rex 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mr_rex_gumball.png
Debut: Season 1, "The Quest"

Tina Rex's father, a brutal, hardly-seen T. Rex said to be just as nasty as his daughter (with the only difference being that Tina actually feels bad about being a bully and hates that people expect her to be just like him. Mr. Rex, however, doesn't care).


  • The Dreaded: Even more so than Tina.
  • The Faceless: His appearance was obscured until "The Routine".
  • Funny Animal: He is possibly not capable of speech, but he has a human level of intelligence.
  • Jerkass: Unlike his daughter, Mr. Rex just seems to be a rude brute who pushes around people weaker than him with no regret.
  • Living Dinosaurs: A tyrannosaurus living in the modern day.
  • Pet the Dog: Tina mentions in "The Blame" that they play video games together.
  • Scars Are Forever: His first full appearance in "The Routine" shows off his right eye scarred and whited out. Nicole beating him up in "The Fight" might have had something to do with that, as both eyes were undamaged before then.
  • Tyrannosaurus rex: He's even bigger than Tina!
  • Would Hit a Girl: He has no problems fighting Nicole and even roars at her, probably thinking she was weaker than him. Also tries to eat Anais in “The Quest”.

    Richwood High Tennis Team 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/hqdefault_2.jpg
Carlton voiced by: Hugo Harold-Harrison
Troy voiced by: Fergus Craig (The Sweaters) Unknown (The Spinoffs)
Mr. Kreese voiced by: Steve Furst
Debut: Season 2, "The Sweaters"

A trio of poorly-animated humans: two high-school tennis players named Carlton and Troy and their coach, Mr. Kreese. They're the first humans to appear on the show in person (not counting Santa Claus, who may be a sort of elf/fairy).



  • Ambiguously Brown: Troy has a somewhat dark skin tone, but it might just be a tan.
  • Bunny-Ears Lawyer: In spite of their delusional behavior, Carlton and Troy are actually extremely skilled at playing tennis. The one time Gumball actually tried to return one of their serves, the spin alone was enough to tear the racket out of his hand.
  • Defeat Means Friendship: Ironically it's after they win that Darwin and Gumball get their respect. They're impressed that Gumball managed to keep playing after a minor injury, despite neither one trying to win before or after it.
  • The Dividual: Carlton and Troy are, for most purposes, the same person.
  • Expy: Carlton/Troy and Mr. Kreese blatantly parody the arrogant but honorable student/ruthless coach dynamic of Johnny and John Kreese in The Karate Kid. Although unlike John Kreese, Mr. Kreese has a Heel–Face Turn.
  • Impossibly Tacky Clothes: They wear extremely stereotypical 1980s clothing, including tennis shoes and high-socks with rainbow highlights, long wavy hair, rectangular shades, and brightly colored sweaters—worn as clothing and accessories, for the shoulder and waist, all at the same time.
  • Genre Refugee: All of them act like they're in a cheesy 80s sports movie when they're really in an episode of a cartoon parodying those movies. Unfortunately, their presence seems to cause almost everyone else to act the same.
  • Manchild: Mr. Kreese engages in Unsportsmanlike Gloating with all the grace, eloquence, and enthusiasm of a five-year old.
  • Non-Standard Character Design: Their designs look like they're from a 70s or 80s cartoon made by Filmation or Sunbow. Even with the show's extremely diverse art style they're all very out of place.
  • Opposing Sports Team: Relentlessly parodied: all three continuously insist that they're "more hardcore" than Darwin and Gumball, despite facing no disagreement, and won't stop bothering them until the two accept their challenge to prove it.
  • Retraux: Their 80s-ness extends not just to their clothes and character design, but also their animation: their movement are all very choppy, they make flamboyant mannerisms reminiscent of Speed Racer, closeups show them with non-uniform outlines and bleeding colors to make them look like they're cel-animated, and there are some deliberate art errors like Carlton suddenly having freckles for just one scene.
  • Rich Bastard: Carlton threatens to have his rich dad bulldoze Elmore Junior High to make a golf course if Gumball and Darwin don't have a tennis match with them.
  • Token Human: They are the only human character seen in-person. However, Carlton, Troy, Mr. Kreese, and the background characters of Richwood High are animated rather than live-action like the humans shown on television, so they might not be quite the same thing.

    Gaylord Robinson 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/200px-gaylord_s2_4167.png
Voiced by Rupert Degas (Season 1), Unknown (Most of Season 2) Stefan Ashton Frank (The Tag, onward)
Debut: Season 1, "The Debt"

The Watterson's cranky neighbor who appears to be a sort of Muppet creature or a Muppet come to life. In spite of his attitude, Gumball and Darwin adore him.



  • Abusive Parents: To Rocky, as revealed in "The Boss." He considers Rocky a disappointment to the Robinson name, and Rocky says he's told him as such to his face "more times than I can count on my hands."
  • Animate Inanimate Object: A puppet.
  • Big Ol' Unibrow: His only hair left is a big unibrow.
  • The Chew Toy: He's a constant victim of the Wattersons' antics (most especially from Gumball and Darwin), even though they don't intend to be malicious toward him.
  • Cranky Neighbor: Mr. Robinson's smug sense of superiority toward the Wattersons is one of his only sources of enjoyment, and he's constantly trying to find something wrong with them, going so far as to camp in his trash can all day to find out if they were using it without his permission.
  • Expy: He bears a lot of resemblance to Squidward in terms of personality (a Cranky Neighbor who the main character inexplicably adores, loves dance) and appearance (same nose, round bald head, similar coloration).
  • Fully Dressed Cartoon Animal
  • Grumpy Old Man: After retirement, Mr. Robinson doesn't have much to do but complain about everything. He even sometimes drives his car around town, trying to make as many people miserable as possible.
  • Happily Married: He and his wife Margaret are "happily" married because they argue, a lot.
  • Hidden Depths: Despite his uptight personality, he has a love of dance, and gives a big musical performance in his first episode.
  • Like an Old Married Couple: A really old couple with his wife, Margaret.
  • Look-Alike Lovers: Broadly; he and his wife are both CGI muppets with the same nose and color scheme, but their hair and body shapes are entirely different. Strangely, their son has his father's body shape, but neither the color or nose his parents share.
  • Marionette Motion: Justified, given what he's based off of.
  • Not Helping Your Case: Falls into this in "The Car." While he's justified in being furious at the Wattersons for destroying his new car, he doesn't do himself any favors by screaming in the Doughnut Sheriff's face to arrest them, destroying the Wattersons' own car in a fit of rage right in front of him, and then trying to attack the Sheriff when he tasers Margaret, who was trying to attack the former first; in the end, all he succeeds in doing is getting himself arrested.
  • Technologically Blind Elders: He doesn't know how to program his alarm clock (he says this himself as he sees someone else is doing it) and mistakes a video camera for a musical instrument.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: As the show progresses, he has been somewhat friendlier towards Gumball and Darwin.
  • Ungrateful Bastard: Gumball and Darwin have done countless kind favors for him, yet he shows little to no gratitude towards either of them.
    Mr. Robinson: You saved my life... But that doesn't excuse you from ruining my performance!

    Margaret Robinson 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/200px-margaret_s2_2499.png
Voiced by: Teresa Gallagher
Debut: Season 1, "The Debt"

Mr. Robinson's wife, another muppet creature, who speaks only in mumbles and, as "The Wicked" revealed, is a violent, destructive sociopath.



  • Abusive Parents: Rocky mentions she's regularly called him ugly.
  • Animate Inanimate Object: A puppet.
  • Cranky Neighbor: In "The Wicked" she's shown to antagonize Gumball and Darwin by framing them several times for her crimes.
  • For the Evulz: In "The Wicked" she commits many evil acts for no reason other than her own amusement. Darwin tries to prove that she's not completely evil, but fails.
  • Fully Dressed Cartoon Animal
  • Happily Married: See Mr. Robinson's entry above.
  • Hartman Hips: Her body shape is basically a tiny torso on top of large, egg-shaped hips.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Jerk: Despite Darwin's expectations, she's thoroughly shown to have no good side or Freudian Excuse.
  • Kick the Dog: Mrs. Robinson nearly kills Darwin when she tosses a tiny plastic car down his throat. When she notices Darwin is choking on it, not only she does not do anything to help, but she also smirks at the sight, having grown tired of the boy trying to change her throughout the episode. She gives him a mocking wave, before leaving him to die.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: After being a Chaotic Evil Karma Houdini throughout the entirety of "The Wicked", Mrs. Robinson's luck runs out when she gets into a car wreck, gets blown up, gets hit by a jetliner and run over by an ambulance within the episode's last scene.
  • Laughably Evil: "The Wicked" show Mrs. Robinson doing astoundingly over-the-top acts of cruelty, even implying she's both a murderer and an arsonist, which is essentially all played for laughs.
  • Look-Alike Lovers: Broadly; she and her husband are both CGI muppets with the same nose and color scheme, but their hair and body shapes are entirely different. Strangely, their son has his father's body shape, but neither the color or nose his parents share.
  • Made of Evil: According to her tag, she was made in the fiery pits of the underworld.
  • The Sociopath: "The Wicked" cements her as this.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: She was originally portrayed as very unpleasant, especially toward her husband, but came off as less antagonistic than him. Then in "The Wicked", she shows herself to be insanely cruel and sadistic.
  • The Unintelligible: She speaks only in mumbles of "meh". Her husband and son can understand her at least, albeit with some difficulty. It's apparently some kind of language, as she's able to write diary entries by writing "meh" and an attempt to imitate her is shown "translated" from her perspective as real, but random words.
  • Would Hurt a Child: In "The Wicked", she tries to run Darwin and Gumball over with her car, though she may have just been trying to scare them. Then she throws a toy that lands in Darwin's throat and he starts choking on it. It was apparently an accident, but she didn't offer any help and only smiled in his face as she walked off into her home, pleased at the fact he was choking and could have died.
  • Your Cheating Heart: In "The Boss," while Mr. Robinson was in the hospital, suffering from a stuffing deficiency, she ran off to go on an island vacation and nearly married one of the sailors she met there. "The Slide" shows she's also anonymously signed up for a dating app.

    Sal Left Thumb 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/slt_s2_8846.png
Voiced by: Kerry Shale (Main) Stephan Ashton Frank (The Boredom, speaking)
Debut: Season 1, "The DVD"

A giant thumb print and resident career criminal. Though not seen often in the series, his face is shown on a lot of wanted posters posted on walls, fences, and in stores. According to "The Boredom", he got into crime because of his failed attempts at launching a singing career.



    Daniel and Mary Senicourt 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/maxresdefault_20.jpg
A young Nicole with her parents.
Daniel Senicourt voiced by: Garrick Hagon
Mary Senicourt voiced by: Liza Ross
Debut: Season 5, "The Choices"

Nicole's parents, both cats like her.


Tropes shared by both:
  • Abusive Parents: They were controlling of Nicole's life to the point of having ridiculously impossible expectations and calculating exactly when she should succeed. They claim they did it only because they wanted what was best for her, and needed to reign in her intense behavior, although this only led to Nicole resenting them. Although perhaps their worst parental trait is just how dangerously incompetent they are when it comes to treating children.
  • Cats Are Mean: They're both cats who were very controlling of their daughter Nicole.
  • Characterization Marches On: Their first appearance in "The Choices" heavily implied they demanded success from Nicole purely to take material advantage of it, and abandoned her completely when she moved out and failed to get a good-paying job. "The Parents" shows their concern for her welfare as genuine (if no less overbearing): Nicole's parents tried to contact her for years after she left, still want to reconcile in the present despite the Watterson family's Perpetual Poverty, and the biggest sign of their apathy (skipping Nicole's wedding) was actually an accident. As the former was shown purely through Nicole's memory, it makes Nicole come off as an Unreliable Narrator.
  • Fully Dressed Cartoon Animal: Both of them wear clothes.
  • Funny Animal: Cats. Mary is a blue cat, like her daughter, and Daniel is white and brown.
  • Gone Horribly Wrong: Daniel and Mary were strict with Nicole because they wanted to reign in her violent temper and give her a successful future. They ended up intensifying Nicole's anger issues (or causing them in the first place) and driving her to move out at a young age, leaving her much less prosperous than she could have been. Ironically, this is still better than if Nicole had obeyed them.
  • Jerkass: Mary is very condescending, and Daniel is always surly and pissed at nothing in particular.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Jerk: Just as Nicole told them off before she left them, it looked like her mother regrets it as she cries. Later at the wedding... they didn't show up even when invited. Ouch. Subverted, however when a later episode reveals that they at least tried to go, but they got the location wrong.
  • Obnoxious In-Laws: They have a low opinion of Richard, as they expected Nicole to marry someone richer. Nicole mentions they tried to set her up with another man during their honeymoon.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: Nicole gets her fur color and body shape from her mother, and her ear, whisker, and head shape from her father. Mary also has the same whiskers as her grandson Gumball.
  • Unnamed Parent: The first appearance has neither given a stated name, and their surname is only known from reading Nicole's report card. "The Parents" names both of them, Daniel and Mary.

Tropes shared by Daniel

Tropes shared by Mary

  • Control Freak: Mary has planned out every part of Nicole's life, timing down to the minute when she would graduate high school, get a law degree, and marry a successful doctor.
  • Second Place Is for Losers: When Nicole heads off to a tournament, her mother's only words for her are "Second place is first place for losers."

    Senior Citizens 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/old_men.png
Marvin voiced by: Dan Russell
Betty voiced by: Jessica McDonald (The Laziest) Teresa Gallagher (The Watch), Maria Teresa Creasey (The Safety), Gillian Hanna (Season 4, onward)
Louie voiced by: Shane Rimmer
Donald voiced by: Dan Russell (Season 4 onwards)
Debut: Season 1, "The Responsible" (Marvin), "The Debt" (Donald and Louie) "The End" (Betty)

A group of old people usually seen sitting together on a lawn. They include an Off-Model Mickey Mouse-looking rodent named Louie (later Louie Watterson), a red jelly bean-looking blob named Marvin Finklehimer, a lady who appears to be a segment of a green chalkboard named Betty, and a man that looks like a collection of plaid patterns named Donald MacArthur.



Tropes that apply to all
  • Ascended Extra: Marvin and Louie end up getting major roles in "The Watch" and "The Man", respectively. Donald and Bettey then have a major role with Marvin in "The Crew". After marrying into the Watterson family, Louie becomes a minor recurring character.
  • Childhood Friends: “The Catfish” shows that, at least Louie and Betty and Donald were friends since they were in school, Marvin probably was too.
  • Interspecies Romance: “The Catfish” reveals that Donald (a plaid square) and Betty (a piece of chalkboard) are married.

Tropes that apply to Louie

  • Butt-Monkey: After Louie dates Granny Jojo and officially becomes a Watterson, a lot more unfortunate things start to happen him - being harassed by Richard several times prior to being part of the family, being tossed through a roof several times, being on the receiving end of Granny Jojo's Yandere behavior, and having his wallet stolen by Frankie. He doesn't mind most of it, though.
  • Cool Old Guy: Louie shows himself to be a very friendly and amiable person, despite Richard's initial objections to him, and has a good relationship with his new grandkids. He can also dance (sort of).
  • December–December Romance: Louie dates, and eventually marries, Granny Jojo.
  • Funny Animal: A mouse.
  • Interspecies Romance: Him (a mouse) and Granny Jojo (a rabbit).
  • Only One Name: Because of bizarre legal circumstances, Louie takes Jojo's last name when they marry. We never see what his name was before.
  • Rambling Old Man Monologue: "The Catfish" shows Louie can be very chatty about his life, messaging to "Muriel" on Elmore Plus for hours about his life story and his relationship with Granny Jojo.
  • Rated M for Manly: Louie went against Richard in a "man off" in "The Man" and won every single event.
  • Scatterbrained Senior: When Louie is off his meds, he mistakes a trash can for a young man trying to compete with him in a dance contest and thinks Marvin is a talking fire hydrant.
  • Second Love: Louie is this to Granny Jojo, since her ex-husband abandoned her and her (then) young son.

Tropes that apply to Marvin

  • Accessory-Wearing Cartoon Animal: He wears a hat.
  • Ambiguously Bi: He is attracted to The Hexagon Lady and Karen and has grandchildren (and children), meaning he had a wife at some point. In "The Lady", he is interested in a boyfriend while dressed as Violet, but it's unknown if it was for real or he just made it up for the friends.
  • Anthropomorphic Food: An official book for the show confirms he is a jelly bean.
  • Dirty Old Man: Repeatedly shown hitting on a woman much younger than him (The Hexagon Lady). He also hit on Karen in “The Butterfly”.
  • Feuding Families: Marvin hated the Wattersons because they'd been feuding with his family for generations over the possession of an old watch. They stop once both sides realize no one actually cares about the thing, but the feud briefly resumed once they find out it's worth a lot of money—then ends again when the watch is destroyed.
  • Iconic Item: A cane that he doesn’t need, but acts like he does in “The Tag” until he sees the hexagon lady.

Tropes that apply to Betty

  • Animate Inanimate Object: Chalkboard.
  • Butt-Monkey: Ever since Season 5, she seems to have bad things happen to her more. In “The Slide” she is pushed to the ground twice, in “The Loophole” her purse is stolen by Bobert, in “The Console” she is knocked out, and in “The Intelligence”, Harold elbow drops her.
  • Iconic Object: She has a purple and yellow purse that she carries around.
  • Obfuscating Stupidity: Betty seems extremely senile in "The Parking" when the Wattersons tried to help her find her car in the parking lot to take her space...until they discover that she rode to the mall on a bus, then she drops the act and starts mocking them on her way out.
  • Slapstick Knows No Gender: See Butt-Monkey above.
  • Stock Scream: She has an “Oof” sound that she made both in “The Slide” (When she was pushed to the ground), and in “The Console”, (when she was knocked out).

Tropes that apply to Donald

    Donut Cop 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/260px-doughnut_s1_6751.png
Voiced by: Lewis MacLeod (Season 1), Dan Russell (Season 2, onward)
Debut: Season 1, "The Third"

The donut police officer most often seen around Elmore. He and the entire police force of Elmore (who are also food just like him) are known for being incompetent.



  • Police Are Useless: Zigzagged. There are times where he is competent and does his job, but for every time that happens, there are at least three or four times he does something reckless that, in the real world, would have gotten him thrown off the force years ago.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: He has his moments of being this, such as in "The Car"; when the Robinsons demand he arrest the Wattersons for destroying their car, he refuses to do so without a warrant, gives the Robinsons multiple warnings to calm down, and ultimately subdues and arrests them once they smash the Wattersons' own car and attack him in a fit of rage.

    Van Shopkeeper 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/van_shopkeeper.png
Voiced by: Alex Jordan
Debut: Season 4, "The Origins"

The owner of a red van which Richard describes as the Awesome Store, who sells many strange and dangerous things.



  • Artifact of Doom: Much of his merchandise is dangerous, including the Evil Turtle and the TV remote and knock-off handheld that each can warp reality. Darwin is an exception. He brushes off complaints by saying that's the risk people take by buying things from the back of a van.
  • Bigger on the Inside: In the one interior shot of the van, it's subtly larger than the van's exterior should allow.
  • Cartoon Creature
  • Expy: Of Mr. Wing from Gremlins.
  • The Little Shop That Wasn't There Yesterday: His store is a van, and thus can move around.
  • Living Shadow: He at first appeared to be hidden in shadow, with only his eyes visible. Then he stuck his hand out of the van, showing he is a shadow, apparently the same species as the mugger from "The Comic".
  • Phrase-Catcher: Described explicitly as "THE AWESOME STORE" by everyone other than Gumball.
  • Small Role, Big Impact: He was the reason that Darwin was adopted into the Watterson family.
  • Unusually Uninteresting Sight: Inverted. Richard thinks it's the best store ever and cheers whenever he sees it. Gumball's the only one who seems to get that it's a dilapidated van.
  • Unwitting Instigator of Doom: He sold Rob the reality warping remote, not knowing he planned to use it to ruin Gumball's life until it was too late.
  • Wild Card: Though he contributes indirectly to horrible events, he's outright helpful in "The Origins" and "The Console." The most directly villainous act he does is sell Rob the Cyclops an Artifact of Doom for a very reasonable rate, and even then he (initially) tried to take it back when Rob said he'd use it for revenge.
    (After mistaking Van Shopkeeper to be the Final Boss of the game in "The Console")
    Gumball: Sorry, it's just you looked so evil and you sold people those cursed objects and stuff.
    Van Shopkeeper: (annoyed) What do they expect when they buy things from the back of a van?

Tobias's mother, also a rainbow cloud person, albeit a very different looking one.



  • American Accents: She has a very nasally Joisey accent, similar to Sheila Brovlofski.
  • Cartoon Creature: Like her currently non-existant daughter.
  • Fully Dressed Cartoon Animal
  • Jerkass: Many of her scenes shows her as an unpleasant and rude person.
  • Joisey: Jackie is currently the only character to have a New Jersey accent.
  • Like Parent, Like Child: In "The Mothers" she shows herself to be as shamelessly self-serving as Tobias, even working with him to cheat at the Mom-off.
  • Super Strength: Subverted in "The Mothers". She lifts a fridge, making it seem like she is as strong as Nicole, but it turns out the fridge was made of cardboard.
  • Trophy Wife: Harold treats her like one.
  • Two First Names: "Jackie" and "Wilson" can both be used as a first name.
  • What Does She See in Him?: Even though Jackie is no prize herself, why would she marry her slimey, cowardly jerk of a husband is unknown.

    Yuki Yoshida 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/yuki_yoshida.jpg
Voiced by: Naoko Mori
Debut: Season 4, "The Fury"

A cloud humanoid who is Masami's mother and wife of the owner of the Rainbow Factory. She and Nicole were childhood friends who trained in martial arts until they both fought each other in the tournament finals, which Nicole won. She left America for Japan so she could train harder, then came back to America for a revenge match against her old friend.



  • Alliterative Name: Yuki Yoshida.
  • Almighty Mom: Just like Nicole, she can cause general chaos and destruction without consequence simply because she's too strong for anyone else to do anything about it.
  • Animate Inanimate Object: She’s a cloud.
  • Arrogant Kung-Fu Guy: She's very strong and disrespectful.
  • Black Bead Eyes: Shares this with Masami as she is a cloud woman.
  • Foil: Yuki and Nicole are both talented fighters who started out a lot alike, but their lives went in opposite directions after their match together. Yuki dedicated almost all of her time to training, which she was able to because she was born into money. Nicole gave up martial arts, but a demanding family and financial hardships forced her to become stronger anyway.
  • Fully Dressed Cartoon Animal
  • Mama Bear: The first second she hears Masami (along with Gumball, Darwin, and Anais) in danger, she stops her fight with Nicole to save her.
  • Noblewoman's Laugh: She has one, befitting her heritage and personality.
  • Rich Bitch: She cares about her fighting prowess much more than her wealth, but she's not above using it to bully Nicole into fighting her again.
  • Screw the Rules, I Have Connections!: Since her husband owns the Rainbow Factory where Nicole works, Yuki is able to harass her with impunity for refusing to fight. After that fails, Nicole acquiesces under the threat of being fired and having her house foreclosed on.
  • She's Got Legs: Likes to show them off in her kicking poses and even flirt with Richard just to tick Nicole off.
  • Sore Loser: She was so offended that Nicole beat her that she left the country to train for years before insisting on a rematch. After losing to Nicole again, she refuses Nicole's wish to be friends again until their kids are in danger.
  • Supernatural Martial Arts: Unlike Nicole, who gets her strength from the Unstoppable Rage built up from being a working mother, Yuki's power comes from training. Mostly this includes superhuman physical abilities and Ki Attacks.
  • Used to Be a Sweet Kid: Before losing to Nicole, Yuki was a friendly person. After the loss and years of training, she's become more arrogant and callous.
  • We Used to Be Friends: Nicole and Yuki go way back until their fated match which the latter lost. She makes Nicole's life a living hell and threatens her job as well as her home just to get her to fight, which the latter eventually accepted. They got back to being friends again when they saved their kids from the collapsing gymnasium caused by their fight, and both insists it was "just a little argument between friends".
