Carmen is a supporting character in The Amazing World of Gumball. She is a student at Elmore Junior High, and the girlfriend of Alan.


Carmen is an anthropomorphic green cactus, with thin black lines for arms and legs. Her eyes and mouth are both black, and her cactus spines seem to serve as her hair. In Season 2, her design barely changed at all. However, her cactus arms seem to have become slightly closer to the edge of her head, as well as the outline of every part of her body (including her prickles) got thicker. In her early design, she only had one eye.


Carmen is said to be a leader among the girls, meaning that she is one of the smartest and most capable people in the school. She also puts a lot of pressure on herself, and she gets extremely upset when she fails at something. Out of all the girls, Carmen is the most serious and focused, dedicating nearly all her time to her studies. She is often seen reading books. She can also be criticizing, which annoys Gumball a lot.

Carmen is also madly in love with Alan the balloon, although this love can obviously never be, because of how readily cactus spines pop balloons, which Alan is.

In "The Best," it is revealed that she used to be a troublemaker at Franklin Junior High for bad grades, vandalizing, and disrespecting the principal, which resulted in her being expelled. Since arriving at Elmore Junior High, she became a better person.
