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

Often at times, he will get into trouble, but he then later learns from his mistakes. Most of the time, he is a kind-hearted young kid, but has had several villainous roles throughout the series. He was voiced by Logan Grove in the first two seasons and is now voiced by Jacob Hopkins as of season 3. As of Season 3, Gumball is now dating Penny who is revealed to be a shapeshifting fairy.

Villainous Roles

Season 1

  • In "The Debt", he thinks Mr. Robinson saved his life, so he tries his best to save his life in return, but he only inadvertantly ends up injuring him. At the end of the episode, he redeems himself by actually saving Mr. Robinson's life from a stage light.

  • In "The Prank", he, along with Darwin, do horrible pranks to their dad, while he tries to get back at them.
  • In "The Picnic", he ate a map to the forest of doom which made him and Darwin lost. Also he threw away Darwin's lunchbox which is their only chance of food.

Season 2

  • In "The Colossus", he tells Hector to start ignoring his mother, which causes the giant to go on a rampage.
  • In "The Banana", he attempts to get revenge on Banana Joe for chewing on Darwin's 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 all for not.
  • In "Halloween", he and Darwin become ghosts, and go 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 ignores Darwin's demands to treat Bobert like a "normal kid".
  • In "The Watch" he and Darwin dress up as the Grim Reaper to scare Marvin into giving back an heirloom, a watch, causing Marvin to pass out, though to be fair, Gumball and Darwin didn't know Marvin would faint. Later he, Darwin, and Richard stole the seniors' scooters and pursued Marvin in them, though to be fair, Darwin asked the Scottish senior for his, so it was only Richard and Gumball that actually stole them.
  • In "The Bumpkin", he invites Idaho to a party, in the morning, he finds Idaho white, pale and sick.
  • In "The Hero". After seeing his dad act dumb again, Gumball laughed again saying that it was worth it.
