Clayton is a minor character in The Amazing World of Gumball. He is one of the various students in Miss Simian's classroom.

Appearance

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.

Personality

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.

Trivia

  • Clayton's animation resembles Claymation, a reference to the fact that he is clay.
  • Clayton's voice changes in every appearance he speaks. In "The Party," he has a more feminine voice, and more of an accent in "The Dress." In Season 2, he has a different voice altogether.
  • His first major role was in "The Skull."
  • Gumball and Darwin chastise him for lying, despite having lied themselves in the past.
    • Despite this could be caused, because Clayton's lies are more compulsive and unnecessary.
  • Clayton's mouth color changes from purple to pink as of Season 2.
  • In his Season 1 design, Clayton did not have eyebrows.
  • Clayton has the ability to shape shift into other people or objects..
  • He seems to suffer from mythomania, a behavior in which the victim has the incapacity to talk about past events without nonsensical lies (not be confused with the incapacity to remember past events).
