| Character Information
Clayton is a living ball of red clay, with big purple lips, and eyes made from clay. He possesses the ability to morph into different shapes. In Season 2, Clayton is given eyebrows, and his clay is more fixed and the inside of his mouth is pink.
Clayton enjoys telling fantastic stories about his life to impress his friends, but most of these stories are either completely false, or grossly exaggerated.
Clayton also seems to be very lonely; it is implied that before the events of "The Skull," Clayton did not have many friends, and that motivates him to befriend Gumball and Darwin despite their hesitance. Clayton befriends them by lying to them (by which the brothers are later upset); he uses this same tactic on Tobias to gain his trust in "The Move."
In "The Move," Clayton reveals that he finds himself boring and socially awkward and that is why he has a tendency to lie often. In order to find someone to call a friend, he finds it necessary to change who he is.
- "The Third": Clayton is seen sitting next to Bobert at lunch. He is also seen again at the gym while Miss Simian says they're playing Trust Ball.
- "The Dress": Clayton is stricken with Gumball, and attempts to help "her" get across a puddle by changing into a bridge, before Tina steps on him.

"I'm having the time of my life!"
Clayton: "Why don't you just wet your hair, and say you had a shower?"
Gumball: "What is this "finger-touch heart-disintegrating move" nonsense?"
Clayton: "Well. After school, I'm gonna go pirate hunting with the president of the solar system in an underwater theme park where-"
"You're right! I guess being someone is good enough. I don't need to lie anymore. [Hugs Gumball] Thanks dudes!"
Clayton: "I've got a contagious rash on me-"
Clayton: "You can't just frame Jamie for knocking out Tobias."
- Clayton's animation resembles Claymation, a reference to the fact that he is clay.

- His first major role was in "The Skull."

- In his Season 1 design, Clayton did not have eyebrows.
- Clayton has the ability to shape shift into other people or objects..
