|William Geoffrey "Billy" Fitzgerald Kitchener Parham III
Billy is a blue blob shaped like an egg. Like most of the Elmore residents, he has two eyes, a mouth, two legs and two arms. His lips are pink-peach colored.
Like his mother, Billy is condescending and thinks of himself as superior to the rest of Elmore. He has a tendency to ridicule people, which can escalate into full-on bullying. He is notably intelligent, cultured, and socially awkward, which at one time made him get along well with Anais.
He has a tendency to question Felicity, always beginning with the word "Mother…", about whatever is going on around them. Felicity's answers are often dismissive or insulting. Despite this, Billy is extremely attached to his mother, celebrating Mother's Day every day and giving her a gift on each of these days, as shown in "The Gumball Chronicles: Mother's Day." However, he is not afraid to go against her when they disagree on something, such as their differing opinions on video games in "The Blame" or his friendship with Anais in "The Egg."
Billy is not always snobbish, as seen when he was enjoying Anais's company in "The Egg," though the attitude returned when Billy's disdain for Daisy the Donkey came up. He also tends to react like most other children his age would if scared or particularly upset, such as crying when he is intimidated by Gumball in "The Comic," or when Jamie draws on him in "The Buddy."
In "The Egg," Billy and his mother were invited to have lunch at the Wattersons' house by Nicole. He and Anais appeared to get along very well and even ended up going on an "adventure" through town, while Felicity and Nicole argued. It is shown towards the end of the episode that Billy and Anais had become very close friends and even believed that they had fallen in love with each other, but the friendship was broken upon Billy stating that he does not like Daisy the Donkey.
Because of this, Billy began to bully Anais. This is apparent in "The Pest," where Anais is very angry at Billy for picking on her. Billy admits to Gumball that he once had feelings for Anais but she did not feel the same way, causing him to hate her but he learns to accept the rejection after Gumball tells him that he will not always get everything he wants in life.
Billy appears to have taken Gumball's advice to heart and become more open-minded. Later, in "The Blame," Billy genuinely asks the other students for more information on video games, and not only questions his mother's teachings, but later confronts her about them at the PTA meeting.
