The van shopkeeper is a recurring character in The Amazing World of Gumball. He was first mentioned in "The Puppy," although his first physical appearance is in "The Origins." He is the owner of the Awesome Store, a van that sells mysterious items.


He appears to be some type of shadowy humanoid, as evident in "The Origins" when he pulls Richard inside his van, in "The Disaster" when he reaches his hand out expecting Rob to pay for the remote, and in “The Shippening”, where he reaches his hand out of the van and tries to give the Donut Cop a doctor’s license and later money. Only his eyes and hand have been seen throughout the franchise.
