Gumball Tristopher Watterson is the main protagonist of The Amazing World of Gumball.


Gumball gets into trouble but doesn't go to his parents when something's wrong. Instead he tries to fix it himself but often just makes it worse. He is optimistic in a way that he can't see the bad in things, which is prominent in The GI, when he thinks his classmates are laughing with him and not at him. He is shown to be a terrible liar on several occasions.

He is kind-hearted and can be mature as well.


Gumball is a blue cat who walks on two legs. His oversized head supports six whiskers (of which only five ever show because his head is always at an angle). He wears a tan sweater with brown cuffs and a pair of jeans.
