 Zachary "Gumball" Tristopher Watterson is the main protagonist villain of the Cartoon Network series The Amazing World of Gumball. He is a student that attends Elmore Junior High School along with his best friend and brother, Darwin, and his sister, Anias. He had a major crush on Penny, an antlered peanut.

At times, he causes trouble, but then later learns from his mistakes. Most of the time, he is kind-hearted kid, but has several villainous roles in the series. He was voiced by Logan Grove in the first two seasons and is voiced by Jacob Hopkins during season 3. Gumball is dating a shapeshifting fairy named Penny. In The Meddler, Nicole, Gumball's mom, told Banana Joe to stop calling Gumball "Gummypuss".

Villainous Roles

Season 1

  • In "The Debt", he thinks Mr. Robinson saved his life, so he tries to save his life in return, but he only ends up hurting him. At the end of the episode, he redeems himself by actually saving Mr. Robinson's life from a stage light smashing his head.
  • In "The Mystery", he tries to find out who put Principle Brown in his locker, but only ends blaming Rocky, Darwin, and Penny.
  • In "The Laziest", Gumball and Darwin cause Larry to lose his job, girlfriend, and car, all just to beat their dad in a lazy-off.
  • In "The Prank", he, along with Darwin, do a horrible prank to their dad, while tries to get back at them.
  • In "The Date", he attends Mr. Cuddles's funeral at Penny's house, but when he sees her sister's drawing, he freaks out and stomps repeatedly on the drawing, hurting her sister's feelings.
  • "The Helmet", by far, this was his most antagonist role yet. He made a helmet that would make him feel "lucky", but in the end, it tears apart his family, and tries to keep the helmet for himself. However, in the end, he learned that his family was nothing without him, so he disposed of the helmet, and threw it into the crusher, redeeming himself.

Season 2

  • In "The Colossus", he tells Hector he is boring and to start ignoring his mother, which causes the giant to go on a city rampage.
  • In "The Banana", he attempts to get revenge on Banana Joe for Darwin's chewed pen, by poking multiple holes in his glue bottle with a pencil. At the end of the episode, he suddenly found Darwin's pen, meaning their feud was for nothing.
  • He, along with Darwin, turns into a ghost in "Halloween", and goes across Elmore scaring other people.
  • He wins a few bets from Darwin in "The Bet". Bobert loses one of his bets and becomes his slave. Gumball makes Bobert perform degrading tasks onto himself - including one which gets him torn apart by Tina Rex - and inadvertently causes him to attack school faculty members. Gumball ignores Darwin's demands to treat Bobert like a "normal kid".
  • He frightens Marvin when he and Darwin dress up to look like the Grim Reaper in "The Watch".
  • He asks Idaho to teach him and his family to live like potatoes in "The Bumpkin", while later at night, he sneaks into the house and starts to party out, but when Idaho sees him, he asks to join him, while in the morning, he finds Idaho white, pale and sick, and almost made him die at the end of the episode.
  • Also, in "The Dream", he makes Penny eat a cupcake made from blueberries, which she is allergic to, and makes her swell up. Then instead of feeding orange pills to heal her, he gave her blue pills which turned out to be thumb tacs. This was due to a recent nightmare involving Penny and Darwin.
  • InThe Hero". After seeing his dad act dumb again, Gumball laughed again saying that it was worth it.
  • In The Lesson, him and Darwin cheat on a math test and get sent to detention; furthermore, while they're in detention, they try to escape school with the help of the Bomb Guy.
  • In The Limit, him, Darwin, Anais, and his dad tried to pursuade his mom to get them candy from the store, but threw a tantrum in public and eventually, she ended up in an out-of-control rage.
  • In The Promise, he tries to prevent Darwin from helping Banana Joe to make a video, which Darwin promised he would do. He even admits to being selfish on purpose.

  • He and his dad are the only ones to have had the most antagonistic roles in the series.
  • His voice actor, Logan Grove, sounds similar to Nicky Jones (born probably January 1997), the kids who voiced Chowder on Chowder, and also voiced Gumball in the Early Reel, probably Jeremy Shada who voiced Finn the Human on Adventure Time and Vincenzo Rauso/Collin Dean (born probably January 1997) who voiced Tiffany on Adventure Time.
  • When gets possessed by Carrie in The Ghost, and by Jealousy in The Flower, it doesn't mark those episodes as his antagonist roles. They were villainous roles by ones that possessed him.
  • In episode The Name, it was revealed that Gumball's real name was Zach, until he legally changed it.
  • Gumball dressed/disguised himself as Gumball/Zach the Evil/Old Timey Villain Judge and Lawyer in episode The Date.
