Hector Jötunheim is a supporting character in The Amazing World of Gumball. He is a student at Elmore Junior High who is in Miss Simian's class.


Hector, being a giant, is extremely tall; so tall in fact that whenever he's shown, the viewer can rarely see above his legs. A thick coat of nappy, multi-colored fur covers most of his visible body, excluding his feet, hands, and buttocks.

In Season 2, his entire body can be seen. He has a gorilla-like structure, but his face does not appear to be visible, because it is covered by fur.


The glimpse of Hector's face.

In Season 3, his face is finally revealed in "The Butterfly."


Hector may seem menacing due to his immense size, but he is actually a very gentle giant. He would never purposely hurt anyone, but he has on occasion been known to unintentionally step on people.

It is explained later in the second season that the kids feel Hector is boring. Hector is deeply offended by this, and attempts to silence those rumors by showing them all the exciting things he does. Unfortunately, all those "exciting" things turn out to be lame - reading actionless comics, taking naps in the middle of the day, and playing with his unknowingly dead hamster. The reason he never does anything exciting is because he is forbidden (by his mother) to express any extreme emotion, mainly because she knows that when you excite a giant, destruction ensues. Gumball, unaware of this fact, encourages Hector to go against his mother's ideals. As expected, Hector goes on a rampage through town, screaming and demanding that he's fun and exciting, and not boring.


Mrs. Jötunheim

Hector's way of living revolves around the influence of his own mother, especially in the field of expressing emotions. The giant felt that his mother was doing this for his own sake, and that it was best for him to have such a way of life.


Gumball was disappointed at how Hector rejected his friend request on Elmore Plus in "The Colossus," and felt that it was his business to butt in the giant's life. Gumball was the first to tell Hector to stand up to his own mother, which resulted into the giant going in a destructive state. Gumball later fixed the problem he caused, and the relationship between the two drastically improved by then. By the end of the episode, it was later revealed that Hector wanted to add Gumball as a friend. The fact that Hector wanted to be friends with Gumball, probably with the approval of his mother, really proved how much the friendship between the two really grew.

Tina Rex

Hector may have feelings for Tina, as shown in "The Party," where he asks her for a dance. Tina quickly accepts, blushing, hinting that she returns his feelings.

Hector: Hey Tina, can I have the next dance?
Tina: You can have this one.

Tobias: Hey Hector, is the game over?
Hector: Yeah, we lost. *whips Gumball, Tobias, and Banana Joe with a giant towel*

Hector: That's my hamster, Barney.
Darwin: Dude, I think that Barney is... *spins Barney's wheel; Barney turns upside down and falls on his head, completely motionless*

Hector: What? Boring? Darwin, do you think I'm boring?
Darwin : I wouldn't say "boring". You're just...much much much much much much much much less interesting than anyone else I know.
