Antagonists

    Anton Clones 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/anton_clones.png
Voiced by Stefan Ashton Frank (Ant-One), Anthony Hull (the others)
Debut: Season 3, "The Recipe"

Numerous clones of Anton that Darwin and Gumball made in "The Recipe" using an everyday toaster. Among them, only the first two clones were named: the burnt first one, who named himself "Ant-One", and the second, which Gumball and Darwin named "Ant-Two".



  • Evil Twin: After surviving being burnt, Ant-One comes out of the garbage can to try and replace the original Anton.
  • Expendable Clone: Although Darwin and Gumball worry about getting in trouble for making them, almost all of them die, and nothing seems to come of it.
  • Literal Genie: They're so naive that they'll follow whatever orders they hear first as literally as possible, even taking "split up" to mean "tear yourself in half".
  • Not Enough to Bury: Ant-One falls into a pool and is torn to pieces by the grate of the drain he's sucked into.
  • Sole Survivor: Ant-Two is the only clone left at the end of "The Recipe". The "real" Anton also died, but he was just a different line of clones that would presumably be replaced again by his parents, raising the question of exactly what happened to Ant-Two.
  • Too Dumb to Live: All but Ant-One have even fewer self-preservation instincts than the real Anton, even directly causing their own deaths just because some random people told them to.
  • Verbal Tic: Ant-Two repeats the last words of something someone else said.

    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: invoked 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's 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.
    Fuzzy 
Voiced by Unknown
Debut: Season 6, "The BFFS"
Gumball's original BFF before Darwin came. A pink, furby-like creature who supposedly comes back from Minnesota.

  • Evil Counterpart: To Darwin. They are both BFFS to Gumball, they're both insecure that Gumball may eventually abandon them for another friend, and they both have there jealous / Yandere moments when Gumball shows affections to others. However, while Darwin is usually well-meaning and makes up for his nastier moments, Fuzzy double downs on his jealous nature and tries to kidnap Gumball to keep him all for himself.
  • Robotic Reveal: Is revealed to be a robot when Darwin whacks him in the head with a shovel, revealing a metallic skeleton. Just like a real Furby.
  • Old Friend: Gumball's original BFF.
  • Yandere: To Gumball. He imprisons Gumball in a cabin so he can "make-up" for all the missing time.
    Gargaroth the Devourer 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/gargarothfullbody.png
Voiced by None
Debut: Season 4, “The Compilation”
Last appearance: Season 4, "The Scam"
A blob creature who is the Monster of the Week in "The Scam". Carrie pretended to be him and thought he was fake, but it turned out he is not, and he rises from the Underworld to haunt the school.

  • The Dreaded: Everybody is afraid of him.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: He appears in "The Compilation", which aired in the US before "The Scam".
  • Killed Off for Real: He explodes when Gumball gives him the last piece of candy.
  • Real After All: Carrie thought his existence was just a "ghost ghost story" but he turned out to be real.
    The Ghouls 
  • You Will Be Spared: From the looks of it, Gumball and Darwin seemed to be spared by the ghouls for making them scary again. As the titular spooks don’t chase the duo unlike the rest of the citizens of Elmore and the Scary Clown even thanks them for bringing their scare back.
    Mr. Gruber 
Advertisement:
    Jealousy 
  • One-Shot Character: Only appears in "The Flower", though Darwin exhibits similar behavior of it in "The Bros" and "The BFFS".
    The Joy Virus 
  • The Bad Guy Wins: By the episode's end, the virus has fully infected everyone in Elmore Junior High with the implication that the infection has gone worldwide.
  • Blood from the Mouth: Infected people have rainbows spewing out of their mouth.
  • Mystical Plague
    Kenneth 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/kennethisback.png
Debut: Season 1, "The Microwave"
Last appearance: Season 2, "The Finale"

A strange creature accidentally created when Darwin and Gumball's "gross jar" is heated in a microwave. He eats basically anything and eventually anyone, growing larger all the time.



  • A Day in the Limelight: In "The Microwave."
  • I Love Nuclear Power: Gumball claims Kenneth was created by "the atomic power of the microwave", though microwaves actually have nothing to do with nuclear radiation.
  • It Came from the Fridge: Kenneth originated when a bunch of gross stuff Gumball put in a jar was put in the microwave.
  • Miracle-Gro Monster: It's voracious eating habits let it keep growing and growing until, after a few days at most, it goes from approximately football-sized to two stories tall.
  • Monster of the Week: Kenneth is not mentioned after "The Microwave" until he reappears in "The Finale" when Richard takes him out of storage.
  • Muck Monster: Kenneth body looks like it's made of mud or sludge. Rather than being industrial waste, he's simply made of all the gross things Gumball could collect, including used tissues, bird poop, belly-button lint, and spoiled milk that was swallowed then regurgitated.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: In "The Finale", it turns out Kenneth was dealt with offscreen by reducing him to his original size again, putting him in his original jar, and freezing it. He's unsealed as part of the Watterson family's The Last Dance.
  • Ugly Cute: In-universe, Gumball and Darwin certainly think Kenneth, as their "son", is cute, and Anais reluctantly describe it using these exact words. At least before he starts growing to tremendous proportions after eating people alive.

    The Puppets 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/20190529_233107.png
Grady
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/20190529_233122.png
Frank and Howdy
Voiced by Rebecca Sloan (Howdy), Baker Terry (Frank, Grady)
Debut: Season 5, "The Puppets"

A trio of puppets named Howdy, Frank, and Grady. Darwin and Gumball played with them about seven years ago, but kept them packed away in the attic since. They may or may not be alive, but either way they have a bone to pick.


  • Ascended Extra: The Monster of the Week in "The Puppets", but they also star in about half of the ''Waiting For Gumball" shorts.
  • Big Ol' Unibrow: Grady sports the villainous version.
  • Bright Is Not Good: Frank and Howdy are brightly colored children's toys, and Grady's clothes are similarly colored, and they all want to torture their owner for not playing with them.
  • Creepy Monotone: Grady always speaks in a monotone voice. He lampshades this when he betrays Gumball.
    Grady: This...was a trap...for you...Dum, dum, dum...
    Gumball: What was that?
    Grady: Dramatic music cue. It probably would have been better if my voice wasn't so flat.
  • Evil Brit: They all have a British accent.
  • Dark Reprise: Downplayed, in that said "The Fun Will Never End" was already a Villain Song (albeit an upbeat one), but after it's revealed that Grady tricked Gumball, the tune shifts into that of a creepy musicbox/carnival feel and the lyrics get darker.
  • The Ditz: Frank is easily the most dimwitted and silly of the trio.
  • Faux Affably Evil: They act like they just want to play with Gumball and Darwin, but really want to sadistically torment them to get back for being abandoned. Howdy and Frank are more blatant examples than Grady, considering they kidnap Darwin and force him to party with them.
  • Incredibly Lame Fun: Howdy and Frank's ideas of "fun" is stuff like wearing a hat (or two hats at once, or no hat at all, which they declare the only options since they only have two hats), baking cakes all day (apparently without ever intending to eat them), counting to 7 (which Frank claims is "the funniest number"), standing in a corner, and arranging a spoon.
  • Maybe Magic, Maybe Mundane: It's not really clear if they're actually sentient, albeit requiring a puppetmaster, or just a figment of Darwin and Gumball's imagination.
  • Oh, Crap!: The Puppets have a moment like this when Darwin pulls on their loose strings.
  • Revenge: Though the puppets nominally wanted Darwin and Gumball to play with them again, they eventually decided the "fun" they want is a Fate Worse than Death in retribution for being left in the attic. They also smash up their gaming console, because video games were what diverted the kids' attention away from their puppets in the first place.
  • Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds: Its' implied in "Waiting for Gumball" that at least Frank was lashing out because he missed Gumball and Darwin.
    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"
Last appearance: Season 6, "The Spinoffs" (Carlton and Troy)

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.
  • Black Best Friend: Troy is this to his brother Carlton.
  • 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.
  • A Day in the Limelight: In "The Sweaters."
  • 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.
  • No Name Given: Mr. Kreese's first name is unknown.
  • 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.
  • Satellite Character: Troy to Carlton; while the latter has several lines in his debut episode, the former only has two, and doesn't do much besides being around his brother.
  • Token Human: They are the first and one of the few human characters 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.

    Timmy/The Internet 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/internet_character.png
Voiced by: Hugo Harold-Harrison
Debut: Season 2, "The Internet"
Last appearance: Season 6, "The Web"

The literal personification of the internet.



  • Anthropomorphic Personification: He's the whole internet, and especially the G.I.F.T., personified as one room full of monitors and a screen for a face. In "The Intelligence", he's shown to apparently embody all technology, and him shutting down brings people back to the dark ages.
  • Art Shift: He was initially 2D-animared, but in Season 6, he becomes a CGI character.
  • Ascended Extra: In “The Internet”, he was just a Monster of the Week, but he returned in “The Love”, two seasons later, and has two important roles in "The Intelligence" and "The Spinoffs", another two seasons later.
  • Basement-Dweller: Timmy lives in a dark room in his mother's basement. He might not be capable of leaving, but it doesn't seem like he'd want to anyway.
  • The Bus Came Back: Originally just a Monster of the Week in "The Internet", but came back in one segment of "The Love" two seasons later.
  • Everything Is Online: The Internet is able to hack traffic signs, police records, power lines (not just the power going through them, the physical object), and fire hydrants to keep Darwin and Gumball away. So they just take a path through the park.
  • Fourth-Wall Observer: "The Spinoffs" shows he is aware The Amazing World of Gumball is a TV show, and Rob capturing him lets him alter the show itself.
  • G.I.F.T.: Timmy directly invokes the power of anonymity for being a jerk.
    I can be a jerk to anyone, while I'm behind the screen, in the safety and comfort of my own home.
  • It's All About Me: Feels he’s entitled to meddle with people’s lives For the Evulz and claims no responsibility for his action. When put under threat, he will pretty much bargain that the internet's value justifies his actions.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Jerk: When Gumball and Darwin’s decide to spare him, he viciously rejects their pleas to consider other people or take responsibility for his actions.
  • Made of Evil: Gumball claims the Internet, "like a goatee", is made out of evil.
  • One Steve Limit. Averted. There are two other Timmys: the frog kid and the gray humanoid from "The Schooling".
  • Took a Level in Kindness: In the “The Intelligence”, he’s in much more cordial terms with Gumball and Darwin.

    Virus 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/datvirus.png
Voiced by Kerry Shale
Debut: Season 2, "The Virus"

A sentient virus and leader of a new strain that mutated on Gumball's unwashed hand. Teri forced Gumball to wash that hand, killing all his soldiers and setting him off for revenge.



     Vladus Lokowitchki 
    Zach 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/zachwatterson.png
Voiced by Jacob Hopkins
Debut: Season 3, "The Name"

An intolerable split personality Gumball develops upon finding out his real first name in "The Name".



  • Asshole Victim: Gumball more or less kills Zach, albeit in self-defense and maybe by accident. Considering Zach was an independent consciousness, this might have significant moral implications... but he's such a jackass that no one gives it a second thought.
  • Cool Cat: Zach definitely tries to invoke the "confident" form of this trope, even wearing sunglasses, but everyone just thinks he's a tremendous douche. He even proudly declares that "There's a new cat in town!" shortly after appearing.
  • Cool Shades: He suddenly starts wearing neon-purple rimmed shades from nowhere, which really aren't very cool looking, and work more like Sinister Shades.
  • Crazy-Prepared: One genuine skill he demonstrates is planning all sorts of tricks to delay the other Wattersons, even putting a trap in his pocket for when they'd try to frisk him.
  • Enemy Within: To Gumball. They both have huge egos and usually fall flat on their face because they try to look cool. However, while Gumball can show compassion and empathy belatedly, Zach is a straight up jerkass. Also, unlike Gumball, who recognizes his own failures, and lives with them, Zach refuses to acknowledge any of his shortcomings or losses, going so far as to alter the memories of his/Gumball's failures to turn them into victories.
  • Evil Sounds Deep: When Zach is in control, Gumball speaks in a deeper voice. However, it's so obviously affected that instead of being intimidating it just makes Zach sound like more of a poser. In his last scene in Gumball's mind, however, his voice starts getting pitched down and slightly distorted, being more of a genuine example of this trope.
  • Fascinating Eyebrow: He's raising one of his eyebrows almost constantly, which leads Darwin to tell him he "spent the whole day with one eyebrow raised, behaving like a horrible jock".
  • I Reject Your Reality: He maintains his disillusions of greatness and popularity in the face of all evidence and words of others. He goes so far as to consciously and completely alter his memory of events so he'll look better in them.
    Zach: Hey Carrie, I think we really nailed the song last night. We're totally gonna win the battle of the bands, man.
    Carrie: You're not in a band. I'm not in a band. I bet you can't even give me the name of a band.
    Zach: Psh, yeah, like... Germany.
  • Jerkass: Zach is amazingly impolite, has an almost pathological disregard for and lack of awareness of other people, and literally won a contest for being obnoxious.
  • Jerk Jock: Zach thinks he's a jock, despite not being on any sports teams, not being able to ride his skateboard well, and generally not being any more athletic than Gumball was before.
  • No Body Left Behind: When Gumball finally beats Zach at something, bits of him start chipping off, showing a bright light in his silhouette as he's torn to pieces. Although this of course wasn't really a "body" to start with.
  • Small Name, Big Ego: For all the misplaced confidence Gumball has expressed, Zach is much worse in this regard than Gumball ever was. Gumball would always acknowledge his shortcomings eventually; Zach does not and seems to believe his own hype with all his heart.
  • Split Personality: Gumball initially seems to be acting obnoxious when he finds his real name, but Zach becomes a separate entity before he even notices.
  • Split-Personality Makeover: You can tell when Zach is controlling Gumball's body because he pops the (non-existent) collar on Gumball's sweater.
  • Split-Personality Takeover: He attempts to fully replace Gumball's original personality by altering their memories until he's erased.
  • Super-Powered Evil Side: Played with. There isn't as much focus on Zach being evil as being a huge jerk, though he really is evil, as he planned to erase Gumball's original personality so he didn't have to share. He's also not really that much better at most things than Gumball, he's just extremely confident and obnoxious. But when mentally confronting his other, less-confident side, said confidence provides a tremendous advantage. But it's also his biggest weakness, as Gumball is mentally resilient enough to take losing all the time, but the one time Zach is forced to face defeat it literally destroys him.
  • Smug Snake: His boundless pride directly leads to Gumball beating him.
  • Third-Person Person: Zach always refers to himself in third person, likely to emphasize he's not Gumball, and it's definitely the "arrogant" form.
  • The Unapologetic: He accidentally bites part of Kayvon's face off and shows no regrets for it, because "Zach does what he wants".
    Zach doesn't apologize, he uses his charm.
  • Undignified Death: Zach is destroyed in Gumball's mindscape, then Gumball immediately farts, his body literally clearing out the hot air.

Miscellaneous

    Bernie and Ethel Klein 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/bernieethel.png
Debut: Season 6, “The Ad”
Bernie voiced by: Garrick Hagon
Ethel voiced by: Liza Ross

  • Funny Animal: Goats.
  • Nice Guy: They're both nice and polite.
  • Shout-Out: Their character designs share many similarities to those of Crayon Shin-chan, including squiggly eyes and elongated, sideways mouths.
  • Tuckerization: Their surname may come from Chuck Klein, a former storyboard supervisor.

    Cartax 
Debut: Season 1, “The Responsible”
Voiced by: Toga Igawa
The Watterson’s car.

    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.



    Elmore 

Debut: Early reel/Season 1, "The DVD"

Not only is every individual object in the Elmore alive and sentient, but Elmore in its totality seems to possess some sort of intelligence. Although it hasn't talked or shown a face like any of the others objects or the planets, "The Void" heavily implies the world itself was responsible for the void's creation and "mistakes" being sent into it.



  • Allegorical Character: Its modus operandi is pretty much that of an author who doesn't mind changing their world retroactively or doing terrible things to their characters for the sake of making the story more interesting.
  • Eldritch Location: It's an entire town that can warp reality. It seems to exist beyond its own time, having banished the platybelodon (an elephant ancestor) to the Void.
  • Genius Loci: Elmore is able to decide what things the world would be better without, then send them to the void. Mostly, it gets rid of dated fads and inefficient technology, but people may go out as well. Being sent to the void isn't necessarily a one-way trip; it's possible to enter the void and retrieve something within it, though it is very dangerous to do so.
  • Greater-Scope Villain: It is responsible for Molly's disappearance and is the reason how Rob turned into the Big Bad. It is also implied that the events that occurred in "The Vegging" where not just its doing, but also by someone!
  • Reality Warper: The world can send things and people to another dimension, suppress most memories of them, and cover up evidence that they ever existed. Given the void's pattern flashed at the end of "The Kids", it might also be responsible for Gumball and Darwin's voice changing. It doesn't have absolute power, however, as Mr. Small, Darwin, and Gumball were able to remember anyway and break Molly out of the void before they were all sealed in. But even then The Void erased their memories of the whole ordeal so they wouldn't be able to tell anyone.
  • Totalitarian Utilitarian: If it will make the world better, it will take people and make them spend the rest of their life in an infinite nothingness with only other mistakes for company. Naturally, it also wants to keep this a secret, even if it means sealing people who it didn't think of as mistakes in that same void. Of course, since it is the world, utilitarianism and selfishness are one and the same. In "The Vegging", it ends up trying to get Gumball and Darwin to do something for the episode to the point they put their family in a dangerous situation only they can solve! Then it is implied at the end that someone was behind the events as the message was trying to warn them them.
  • Walking Spoiler: Simply knowing that the world has a will of its own is a major part of the twist of "The Void".
  • You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: When the world feels like a thing goes out of style or out of its usefulness, it sucks it up back into the Void. In the final episode, it does so to the entire world of Elmore in the ending, starting with Rob!
