Jodie Mallard is a minor character in The Amazing World of Gumball who first appears in "The Parasite." Gumball and Darwin learn about her while reading Anais' diary, in which she describes the ways she has helped her new friend Jodie. Since Jodie is never said to return the favor, Gumball and Darwin jump to the conclusion that she must be taking advantage of their little sister. However, they are proven wrong when the two fuse into a parasitic entity and have to be taken to the infirmary. Once there, Jodie reveals she only wanted to borrow a pen from Anais, who became clingy from that moment.
Jodie is a short orange duck with orange cheeks. She is somewhere between Gumball and Anais in height. She has short black hair and does not wear any clothes.
She is very anti-social and nervous, and she speaks in a laconic manner. Anais' social awkwardness caused her more trouble, forming a parasite of both of them.
"The Parasite": Her first appearance and first major role. Gumball and Darwin see her as exploiting Anais as her friend.
