|Harry "Ocho" Tootmorsel
Harry "Ocho" Tootmorsel is a recurring character in The Amazing World of Gumball. He is a spider designed in 8-bit graphics. He is in Miss Simian's class at Elmore Junior High. He has anger issues, as revealed in "The Phone," as well as trust issues, as revealed in "The Uncle."
Ocho is a small, black 8-bit spider. His design is either a tribute to the design of the alien ships in the arcade game Space Invaders or one of the Jelectros from Super Mario Bros. 3. In his early concept, he was colored blue instead of black, had smaller eyes, and was more 2D. In season 2, he becomes dark-grey instead of black.
Ocho can be nice and friendly when interacting with others that are nice to him. However, agitating him enough causes him to become erratically angry, and begin shouting at and attacking other people. In "The Phone," Ocho's anger issues extend to the point where he will try to murder someone for insulting his mother. Ocho's short-temper is so legendary that his classmates tend to steer clear of him when he is angry.
In "The Uncle," Ocho is shown to have a somewhat twisted sense of humor; letting Gumball believe he has been kidnapped and is about to die for a solid minute before revealing he pranked him— completely oblivious to the trauma Gumball received. He later admits he can be way too intense and controlling but he has trust issues, as he believes people only want to befriend him because his uncle is famous.
"The Spinoffs" shows that Ocho has become a lot more sociable and trusting, as he is shown hanging out with many students (and Rocky) at Elmore Junior High. It is also shown that another reason Ocho was once so hot-headed and distrusting is that he was bullied as a younger child for having three butts.
Like the alien ships in Space Invaders, Ocho can levitate, and shoot rays that disintegrate objects and people into cubes (although in "The Phone," Gumball and Darwin are shown to have three lives, like in Space Invaders).

- His name is a gag, as "Ocho" means eight in Spanish, which refers to him being a spider and having an 8-bit design.
- Even though he is a spider, he only has six legs. This is probably a nod to the limits of 8-bit graphics.
- Ocho has his first speaking role in "The Phone."
- His real name is Harry Tootmorsel as revealed in "The Uncle." However, due to his last name being a highly embarrassing name, it is a secret he only shares with the closest of his friends which is also true with his first name despite it being a normal given name.
- Despite his stature, Ocho is strong enough to lift people, as seen in "The Club," when he was hoisting up Gumball.
- The episode "The Phone" was the first episode that revolved around him. "The Uncle" was the second. He also played a recurring non-speaking role in "The Club."
- Ocho can use cheat codes in real life, as shown in "The Tape."
- He is shown using the famous Konami Code in the episode.
- Judging by the fact he has been seen in magazines in numerous episodes, he could be famous.
- This is further supported in "The Uncle" when he says that one of his uncles is famous.
- He had no physical appearance in season 3, other than appearing in books, screens, magazines, and posters. However, he was originally going to appear in "The Name," at Zach's party, but was removed.
- In "The Blame," it is suggested that Ocho used to look like a live-action human being (who resembled Jacob Hopkins, Gumball's second voice actor) and that his 8-bit graphic form is a result of excessive gaming. However, this was later proved to be a non-canon joke in "The Spinoffs," where Ocho was revealed to have been born in his current form.
- He does not speak in "The Club" even though he is a supporting character in that episode.
- Ocho is one of the twelve characters to share their name with another, the others being Gary, whose real name is "Harry," and Harold Wilson. The other characters share their names with each other but not with Ocho and Gary: they are Billy, whose name is short for "William," and William, Rob, Bobert, and Banana Bob, Daniel Senicourt and Daniel Lennard, and the remaining two are Timmy the frog and Timmy the Internet.
- In the early reel, the first season, and "The Words," Ocho had an 8-bit web he used to swing on ceilings and tree branches, but it stopped appearing after he gained the ability to float and fly in season two.
- He was originally supposed to be blue.
- In one segment in "The Phone," Ocho was 3D animated. This makes him one of few characters in the show to be animated in both 2D and 3D.
- He is stated to be a teenager in "The Spinoffs."
