Tobias is a supporting character in The Amazing World of Gumball. He is a student in Miss Simian's class at Elmore Junior High. His first appearance was in "The Third," when he became Darwin's friend for ten dollars. He was given many redesigns in season two. Including eyebrows, smaller feet and recolored shoes.


Tobias appears to be a multi-colored fluffly cloud like humanoid. Most of his body is colored red but the lower part is orange and his top hair part is blue. He has a medium sized mouth with a blue mark around it. He wears a headband like the others in his family and much like Darwin Watterson only wears red and white shoes.


Tobias believes that he is a heavily built jock, but in reality he isn't at all. Despite him not having a good, athletic build he is obsessed with sports and is always trying to hone his scrawny physique. He also seems to have a big ego. Like Gumball, Tobias has a crush on Penny. However, as shown in one Elmore Stream-It clip, he may have a crush on Idaho's Sister as well, despite the fact she is only around three. Because of his inflated ego, Tobias is more confident in his abilities to court Penny than Gumball is. Tobias can also be somewhat of a bully, such as when he was tossing Anais' plush Daisy doll around on the bus.


Gumball In "The Third," he becomes Darwin's and Gumball's friend for twenty dollars, but ignored Gumball and hung out with Darwin instead. When Gumball and Darwin reunite at Tobias' house. Tobias asks if he can play with them, which both of them deny. In "The Quest," he ignores Gumball's threat and tossed Anais' stuffed Daisy the Donkey out of The School Bus' window.

Darwin Tobias was a good friend to Darwin in "The Third," but this may have been because he was paid twenty dollars to do so. He also went out of his way to save Darwin from kissing Masami by helping Banana Joe chop down the treehouse.

Banana Joe Tobias seems to be pretty good friends with Banana Joe. In "The Pressure," he spends a lot of time with him, and together they formed a pact along with Gumball and Darwin, promising to put their "pals before gals". When Darwin breaks this pact, he accompanies Banana Joe in chopping down the girls' treehouse to save Darwin from kissing Masami.

Penny Like Gumball, Tobias has a crush on Penny. This occasionally causes tension between the two, but unlike Gumball, who is shy around Penny, Tobias is more confident in his abilities to woo her, though Penny does not return her feelings to him like she does to Gumball.

Rachel Rachel is Tobias' older sister. They are very hostile to each other - Rachel screams at him and his friends that they aren't invited to her party, so Tobias has to blackmail her into inviting them.

Rob Rob hung out with Tobias throughout "The Party". Rob might be Tobias' good friend.
