The Evil Turtle is a minor character in The Amazing World of Gumball. She was the pet of Gumball, Darwin, and Anais. She made her first appearance in "The Puppy." She was accidentally bought by Richard while she was pregnant.


The Evil Turtle is likely an African softshell, the only living member of the Trionyx genus. She has a long, wrinkly neck, and a small, protruding snout. Her carapace and head are olive in coloration, while her plastron is mint. Darwin notes that she smells "like a belly button."


She focuses all of her efforts into biting people. She is also practically invincible, being able to survive a direct hit from a car, and leave an explosion unscathed.

  • The turtle's sunlight-induced "death" is a reference to Ben Bocquelet's pet turtle, and how he died from dehydration.
    • In addition, it is also a reference to the film Gremlins, in which the titular creatures have a weakness to bright light.
  • The turtle is called a Trionyx, a genus of softshell turtles[1].
  • The Trionyx is also referred to in Latin as occidere machinae ex infernum, meaning "killing machine from Inferno/Hell," according to one book Anais reads.
  • The turtle laughs in a manner similar to Hannibal Lecter.
  • The turtle can see in infrared vision like the Predator.
  • "The Nest" reveals that the turtle is a female, a fact foreshadowed by her desire to reproduce in "The Puppy."
    • The same episode reveals that she was actually pregnant, rather than just evil.
      • However, shortly after the characters make this conclusion, the turtle and her babies attack and successfully sink an entire cargo ship, so both seem to be the case.
    • However, Gumball refers to the turtle as a female in "The Man."
