The Chimera is a minor character in The Amazing World of Gumball. His first appearance was in "The Friend," where he is created by an elderly toymaker as an imaginary friend, but becomes homeless after his previous owner dies. After the death of his creator, he went on to look for a new friend, breaking into houses and unintentionally scaring people. He explodes after digesting soda and mints, but his body reforms at the end of the episode.


He is a combination of a great white shark's head with black hair, multiple building blocks for a body, a muscular action figure right arm, a left arm with a buzz saw attached to the end of it, a human right leg, a Brontosaurus' left leg, and a crocodile's tail. The Chimera also has the ability to remove his body parts, and put them back together again.


Despite his scary appearance, the Chimera is actually a meek, socially awkward monster with a heart of gold. His social awkwardness is what makes him such good friends with Anais. The Chimera also has a more bold and courageous side, which was shown when he went as far as threatening to blow himself up when the police try to arrest him.


  • The word "chimera" actually means "an imagined or unreal creature." This is fitting for Chimera because he was thought to be an imaginary friend, until it turned out that he was a real creature.
    • Chimera is also the name of a Greek mythological monster that has the head of a lion, the body of a goat, and the tail of a serpent. The monster from the episode is a mix of different toys, just like how the Greek monster is a mix of animals.
  • His body is made out of building bricks similar to Mega Bloks or LEGO, while his right leg is made out from a Barbie doll leg and his left leg appears to be similar to The Thing from the Fantastic Four comic series.
