Gumball Tristopher Watterson is a blue 12-year-old cat who originated from the show "The Amazing World of Gumball".


In the actual show, Gumball is a light blue cat. On his oversized head, he has six whiskers, but only five are visible most of the time, because his head is mostly shown at an angle. He usually wears grey trousers, coupled with a tan sweater, which has brown cuffs and a brown collar. Like his mother and father, Gumball doesn't wear shoes, and is the only member of the Wattersons without visible eyelashes, although, in some episodes, he is seen with visible eyelashes, like in "The Refund" and "The Boss." The inside of his mouth is pink, his tongue is light pink, and his nose is orange.


Gumball is portrayed as a fun-loving, imaginative, rather optimistic, and a very mischievous cat. When his mishaps get himself into a mess, he usually attempts to fix things with somewhat dimwitted ideas, which usually get him into even more trouble than before. No matter how his schemes resolve themselves, Gumball's naïveté stops him from learning his lesson. He usually plans his mishaps with Darwin. Like Darwin, Gumball does not appear to notice deception, which may mean that he is too optimistic to notice most negative things around him.

Gumball has a big ego, and it is where he is most sensitive. Otherwise, he is usually positive on all matters concerning him. Gumball is smart, but that doesn't mean he's wise. At times, he acts really stupid, and goes to great illogical lengths to find something, but he has shown some degree of cleverness in other circumstances. He happens to have a superior vocabulary than that of most of his classmates, using more mature words. Gumball has also displayed extents of observance and operational ingenuity, such as being able to identify small things like the burn markings on Rocky's palms, intellectually arrange escape routes based on his surroundings, and even counter his own mother Nicole's hand-based offenses for a great deal of time, shown in both episodes "The Date" and "The Remote"; in which case, even secretly confiscating her car keys from her pocket in the process. His antics have gotten him in dangerous and often life-threatening situations, usually saved by luck or by someone more sensible at the time. He has shown skill in building, when he made a system of chain reactions to launch a bowling ball onto the moon, as seen in "The Car," though he failed miserably in the last element that held the launching spring up.

He is a decent cook, making a very good sandwich for Darwin as mentioned in "The Secret," and is shown making a good (extremely spicy) meal for him in the same episode. He also got a B in home eds for his cooking, and Miss Simian called his cooking divine. However, in "The Responsible," Gumball makes disgusting food for Anais, consisting of a rotten fish between bread slices, and an old shoe. In "The Knights," Gumball made a cake for Mr. Fitzgerald.


Darwin WattersonEdit

Darwin is Gumball's adopted brother and best friend and his fully-fledged friend. The two are often seen together, and thus, are prone into getting into mischief with each other. Through thick and thin, the two seem to have each other's back.

Gumball's love for Darwin is what allowed Darwin to be the way he is in the first place. "The Origins," part one and part two, gives more insight into the strength of the two brothers' bond. Gumball's love for Darwin is so strong that it allowed Darwin to quickly evolve and return home to the family.

Gumball describes Darwin as a sort of "moral" guardian to him, for Darwin is the one usually to call out his brother when his plans cross into immoral territory. As seen in "The Sidekick," Gumball sees Darwin in a better light than he lets on.

Despite this, Gumball is known to occasionaly retaliate again, specifically when it involves Darwin achieving more than he does. Such is the case in "The Triangle," in which Darwin discovers his secret talent for the swanee whistle and gets a part in the school band. This prompts Gumball to impede his brother's progress as much as possible.

Anais WattersonEdit

Anais is Gumball's younger sister very much and sometimes appears to be very proud of her. Despite his occasional snarkiness towards her, Gumball does truly care for her.

Anais can often act as a counter-balance to Gumball's tomfoolery. In episodes such as "The Plan" and "The Lie," Anais is quick to point out all the flaws in Gumball's brash actions. In "The Plan," Darwin also plays that role with her, making for a double wham.

Gumball is also very protective of his little sister. In "The Pest," Gumball is quick to get into a duel with Billy after he catches him insulting her. Gumball also tries to poison Jodie in "The Parasite" when he believes that Jodie is abusing Anais' social awkwardness.

Nicole WattersonEdit

Nicole is Gumball's mother.

Gumball loves his mother very much and looks up to her. Despite this, Gumball often fears his mother's temper, as seen in episodes such as "The Fridge," in which he comments how her scary temper and desire to win has teared the family apart.

That aside, Gumball does legitmatley hold his mother up in high regard. In "The Mothers," both he and Darwin are eager to prove to their friends that their mother is the best. In "The Fury," he is blown away by his mother's abilites.

Nicole also genuinely desires to be closer to his son. In "The Meddler," she takes time out of her work to give her sons the attention they desire, and in "The Shell," she goes out of her way to comfort Gumball when he fears he may have lost Penny forever.

Richard WattersonEdit

Richard is Gumball's father, but Gumball sees Richard more as an older brother rather than an actual father figure. Gumball often plays videogames with his father, and in general, he can be seen goofing on with his children as opposed to showing any parental authority. As shown in "The Password," however, Richard can exercise some authourity, specifically when Gumball and his brother pushed him to his limit.

Because of this, Gumball fails to take his father seriously. This can be seen in "The Hero," in which he insults his father, believing him to be a joke. This is rectified by the end of the episode, as Gumball rebonds with his father.

It's shown that earlier in Gumball's life, such as 'The Hero," "The Origins" and "The Choices," Richard was very much an active parent in Gumball's life; he always had his eye on him and did everything in his power to be the best father possible.

Granny JojoEdit

Granny Jojo is a very overprotective grandmother towards Gumball and his siblings. In "The Authority," she takes over Nicole's job as caretaker of the hosue, and in her new position, she scares Gumball and his siblings staright. Despite this extreme method to parenting, Granny Jojo only has the best intentions for Gumball. In "The Man," Gumball agrees to help Granny Jojo reunite with Louie despite such actions being against his father's wishes. He is also very supportive of the marriage between Louie and her.


Even though Louie is a fairly recent addition to the Watterson family, he still loves Gumball and his siblings as if they were his biological grandchildren.

In "The Man," Gumball was very supportive of Louie's relationship with Granny Jojo, wanting both parties to be happy despite his father's obvious disdain.

When he is later married to Granny Jojo and becomes the Watterson children's step-grandfather, Louie gives a gift of $50 (that the children initially believed to be $5000) as gift for "being his favorite grandchildren."

Penny FitzgeraldEdit

Penny is Gumball's girlfriend.

Gumball and Penny had always had a mutual crush on one another. Before the big confession, both Gumball and Penny were shy and awkward with each other. Both seemed to be especialy introverted when speaking with each other. This is until "The Shell," when Gumball finally admits his true feelings to Penny and kisses her on the lips. Penny reciprocates their kiss and they began their special relationship forth onwards.

In "The Shell," Gumball helps Penny get over her insecurities when she comes out of her shell. He's there to tell her how her apperance doesn't matter, and that he will always love her. After that, Gumball and Penny seem to share a healthy romantic relationship, often spending time together as seen in "The Blame" and "The Misunderstandings." Gumball also occasionaly likes to shake things up, as seen in his romantic quest in "The Romantic."

Gumball's and Penny's trust in eachother is strong that when Gumball accidently kisses Sarah in "The Disaster," Penny trusts Gumball that it wasn't on purpose, but instead she gets upset over the language change.

Two flash-forewards from "The Cringe" reveal Gumball and Penny's potential future where they get married and eventually have kids of their own.

In "Quartriple Date", Gumball gives Penny a Lightsaber during their quatriple date.


Mordecai is Gumball's former best friend, later friend.

In "Heroes Disbanded", He and Mordecai are no longer best friends anymore. However, they decide to become friends.

In "We Bare Regular Bears", Mordecai told Zim, Gumball, Meta-Crisis Mordecai, Spongebob, Robin and Steven to become best friends.

Invader ZimEdit

Zim is Gumball's assistant. These two probably have the tightest friendship in the show's continuity, and it shows. Anytime Zim goes somewhere, most of the time, Gumball will be right by his side. They both share most of their interests with each other, and they generally have all their adventures together. They often get into sticky situations with each other. Unfortunately, these situations are what often get them in trouble, and sometimes even separated.

Nate WrightEdit

Ever since Nate entered the series, it's no secret that Nate and Gumball have had a bit of a rocky friendship. Gumball's strong friendship with Zim often irks Nate. Gumball is also usually stubborn when Nate is around his friends, which causes them to get into fights, like when Gumball tries to convince Nate to join the Irken Empire.

Despite all this, however, they still look out for each other. They try to help each other out when they are in danger, and they can also have some fun times, as well.



Back in Seasons 1 and 2, Rob used to be friendly towards Gumball. However, due to the tragic incident that happened in "The Void," he swore revenge on Gumball and Darwin.

In "The Bus," Rob became more focused on defeating Gumball than Darwin. His evil plan was to blow everybody up in the hijacked school bus with an explosive suitcase, but his plan was foiled and got arrested by the police for his crimes.

In "The Disaster," he purchased the Universal Remote from the Magic Van, giving him new powers to control the universe. He was responsible for ruining Gumball's life by taking away his family and nearly killing his girlfriend, Penny. Gumball confronts his nemesis in a battle, but Rob defeats him by banishing him to the Void, but Gumball was able to save himself by rewinding himself back to the beginning of the disastrous day.

In "The Rerun," after saving Rob, Gumball tries to befriend him, but the circumstances makes their friendship short-lived as Rob has to rewind back to the beginning of the day.

In "The Ex," Rob makes Banana Joe his nemesis instead of Gumball, making him sad. Gumball later tries to become friends with him, but inadvertently saves Banana Joe from his trap, causing him to snap, saying that he is the most insufferable, annoying, selfish person that he had ever met, making Gumball happy.
