| Game Child
| Character Information
Its name, the "Game Child," is a reference to the Game Boy, a Japanese handheld game console.
After Richard gives Gumball the Game Child, he reluctantly plays an 8-bit role-playing game called Inverted Paradox: The Enemy Within. Starting the game, he gets mysteriously transported to his room. Darwin and Anais team up with Gumball, nicknamed "MYBUTT", to complete their main quest.
After battling a monstrous flower and completing several minor quests, Gumball, Darwin, and Anais encounter the Van Shopkeeper, who tells the heroes that the Game Child is the true enemy and is responsible for trapping Gumball, Darwin, and Anais inside the game.
The Game Child takes the form of a tentacle demon, and the Watterson siblings are troubled in defeating it. Gumball, using his telephone, summons his more powerful friends and family, who brutally defeat the creature and end the game.
- Although the Game Child is only a reference, there is a real Chinese knockoff console with the same name in real life.
- It is the twelfth character to die onscreen on the show, with the first eleven being Anton (who is revived), Jealousy, the Virus, Ant-One, the Anton Clones, Zach, Mr. Chanax, Darwin (who is revived), Vladus Lokowitchki, Gargaroth, and Anais (who is revived).
