Weakness and Faults[]

  • Lacks combat experience
    • His first tactic in combat is to run away from his opponent, and usually try to think of a solution
  • Pacifistic; he is not a brute by any means, he doesn't like to kill, and he prefers to make amends, no matter how evil his opponent is
    • Immediately felt remorse after sending Rob to The Void and didn't hesitate to rescue him, despite Rob ruining his life by killing his siblings, causing his parents to divorce (as well as aging them down to babies), and making his girlfriend, Penny, break up with him
    • In combat, he usually goes for defensive tactics instead of offensive methods
  • Despite his Toon Force and regeneration, he can still feel pain and get knocked out and could be very much inconsistent at times.
    • Has been knocked unconscious by Tina Rex and even a golf ball (S4E16: The Apprentice)
    • Despite his impressive regeneration, he has been threatened by erasure more than once:
      • The Name - Gumball had to get rid of his alter-ego, Zach, before he could fade from existence. The more time went on, the more he was weakened and on the verge of getting removed.
      • The Countdown - Gumball pointed out how if he and Darwin altered history, their "now selves would never exist", and that they would "disappear into nothingness".
      • The Money - Gumball and his family had to retrieve the show's budget before they could get erased.
      • The Rerun - Gumball needed to rescue Rob or else he would get erased.
      • Because of these, his regeneration "feat" of eating himself from existence (from S3E19: The Procrastinators) would be an outlier
  • Highly afraid of water and can't swim
  • Idiotic
    • Consistently gets himself (and sometimes his entire family or school) into major trouble from his mistakes
    • Usually makes bad grades in school
    • Has admitted to failing middle school twice
    • Ignored his family's clear warnings they were being watched by cameras in the episode, The Safety
    • Naive
    • Pretended to know what the word "procrastinator" meant instead of just admitting he didn't know what it was
    • Has notoriously poor grammar
    • He and Darwin were easily tricked by Sal Left Thumb, a wanted criminal, into serving as his accomplices
  • Extremely lazy
    • Spent his day off never leaving his couch, and when his family was in grave danger, he was only willing to save them from the comfort of a swiveling chair (S6E4: The Vegging)
    • Has procrastinated on one of the most simplest chores: taking out the trash (S3E19: The Procrastinators)
    • According to Nicole, Gumball was four years old before he finished his first sentence, which was "I'll do it tomorrow"
  • Egotistical and wimpy
  • Vulnerable to:
    • Poison/Venom
      • Received a major loss of motor skills when his mother's workplace was bombarded by toxic gases. (S6E36: The Factory)
      • Had to receive medical attention after repeatedly getting bitten by a venomous spider. (S1E16: The Kiss)
      • Became severely intoxicated after being in close proximity of a chemical outbreak. (S5E32: The Best)
      • Was reduced to a skeleton and also knocked unconscious by Miss Simian's morning breath. (S6E13: The Pact)
      • Was massively affected by a snake's bite. (S4E17: The Hug)
      • Was drastically weakened after holding in his toxicity, and had to expunge it before his physical state could get any worse. (S5E8: The Test)
    • Radiation
      • Almost died after Bobert released radiation in the air. (S5E10: The Loophole)
  • The Universal Remote is as durable as an actual TV remote and can run out of batteries
    • He is also not as ruthless and experienced with it as Rob
  • The Magic Notebook has a limited amount of pages, and erasing a passage will reverse any changes. It can also be easily ripped from his possession and destroyed
  • His time stop and time traveling abilities from the episode The Countdown are not combat applicable
    • He cannot summon the timer at will
    • When he crashed into the screen (which paused time), it was only on accident
    • Has generally never controlled time in any life-threatening situation
  • The Helmet can be knocked off his head with ranged attacks
  • Cowardly
  • Does not plan at all
    • Any plan he does come up with ether backfires or makes any situation worse
  • Tends to be insensitive and openly insults students and adults alike, which often leads to trouble for him
  • Always believes his opinions and principles are in the right
  • Extremely immature
  • Despite being able to regenerate his whole head, he's incapable of forcing himself to shed tears to guilt trip people
