Tina Rex is a supporting character in The Amazing World of Gumball. As suggested by her name, Tina is a Tyrannosaurus rex. She is the fearsome bully of Elmore Junior High who got held back two grades.


Tina is a large and extremely fearsome Tyrannosaurus rex. She is covered in thick, brownish-gray scales from head to tail. She has a huge mouth full of enormous, white carnivore teeth and very noticeable halitosis.

In season 2, Tina gets a redesign— she has a more brownish color and looks more realistic. Her eyes are also less slanted and more circular in shape.


Tina is the resident bully of Elmore Junior High and is one of the meanest, largest, and strongest students.

She regularly torments her underlings at school, such as Idaho and Anton, both of whom she can stomp on with ease. Jamie is her best friend and partner in crime.

Tina lives in the junkyard with her father, which suggests that they are either too poor to afford a house, too large to fit in one, or a combination of both predicaments.

Tina has apparently never owned a toy before, which caused her to steal Anais' Daisy the Donkey plushy. She claimed that she wanted to give it back, but her loneliness made her want to keep it for herself.

Despite Tina being a bully, she has been suggested on many occasions to be a sensitive and somewhat insecure individual at heart who doesn't properly know how to express acts of generosity. It has also been said that Tina bullies others due to their lack of recognition of her femininity.

It has become something of a self-fulfilling prophecy— she only acts like a monster because she looks like one and is treated as such. She has admitted to being quite scared of Nicole, in the season 1 episode, "The Fight." From this point on, Tina can sometimes be seen trying to unlock her sensitive and feminine side, such as when she tried out for cheerleading in "The Photo," but lacked the flexibility to do a split.

Tina's more sensitive side can be seen in "The Words;" when Darwin insults her for her lack of femininity, she breaks into tears.

After Season 1, Tina is shown to be less aggressive and brutal when dealing with other students. However, when she gets angry, she will attempt to assault the person who angered her.



Tina frequently torments Gumball. This is prominently shown in "The Fight," when she chases Gumball throughout the school, ending with Gumball getting injured due to running into a door. When Nicole confronts Tina's father at the end of the episode, Tina tells Gumball that she does all those things to him because she was just having fun and that she thinks of him as a good friend. Also in "The Party," Tina becomes Gumball's date, and they were able to get along without tormenting each other. However, there are also cases that Gumball mocks Tina's talents too, causing her to run through the school to catch him, as seen in "The Flakers." Occasionally, Tina helps Gumball, as seen in "The Others."


Tina is Jamie's best friend. They both like bullying weaker students in school.

    • This could be a factor for their love interests.
