Mr. Kreese is a minor character in The Amazing World of Gumball. He made his first and only appearance in "The Sweaters." He is a teacher at Richwood High, and is the coach of Carlton and Troy.


Mr. Kreese is drawn in a similar style as Carlton, Troy, and all the other human spectators appearing in "The Sweaters" and "The Extras." He is physically fit with brownish skin. Additionally he wears a red shirt, white shorts and sneakers, long socks, and two sweaters (one yellow, tied to his waist; and one green, tied around his shoulders). He also has a mustache, and short black hair.


As the coach of Carlton and Troy, he is very strict and competitive. Despite his strict attitude towards his pupils, he trusts them and believes strongly in them as shown in "The Sweaters." He seems to be ignorant too like his pupils (like when he continues taunting Gumball and Darwin even after they admit they aren't hardcore, and praising them even when they didn't do anything during the tennis match between them and his pupils).
