| Nicole Watterson
| Character Information
Nicole Watterson is a main character in The Amazing World of Gumball. Nicole is the mother of the Watterson family and is the only truly responsible member of the family. She is very dedicated to her family and would do anything in her power to keep them comfortable and safe.
Nicole greatly resembles her oldest son, Gumball, who is, like her, a cat. She has light blue fur and is somewhere between Richard and Gumball in height. Her head is shaped similarly to Gumball's, except Nicole's whiskers are shorter than her son's and she has visible eyelashes.
Her usual outfit consists of a white collared shirt with a button that symbolizes The Rainbow Factory, where she works. She wears a short, light gray skirt to go along with it. Like the rest of her family (excluding Anais and Darwin), she spends most of her time barefoot.
In the second design she has tucked in her shirt and her body has gotten much slimmer. Her mouth got rounder and the shadows from her shirt and skirt are entirely gone as well, and her whiskers have gotten shorter.
Nicole cares deeply for her family, so much so that she would do anything to express her love for them. She is also very protective of her family as seen in The Ape. Since she's the only truly responsible member of the family, Nicole does most of, if not all the household chores, and in addition she works long hours at The Rainbow Factory just to put food on the table.
Unfortunately, Nicole also suffers from a tremendous amount of emotional stress because of her many duties. She is also quite the demanding mother and has an extremely nasty temper that can turn her into a very scary person when upset. In fact, on one occasion, Gumball decides it'd be easier to face a giant T-rex than an angry Nicole.
Nicole is also very athletic, and is fully capable of chasing her children across the neighborhood when they're in trouble. On one occasion Gumball compared her to a ninja. She's also been shown to be competitive and strong enough to tear down a door. She was also practically capable of giving Mr. Rex a massive beat down with ease.
Nicole can be quite stern when provoked and occasionally vindictive, as was shown on the episode "The Ape" after Miss Simian called her and her family "losers". On top of this she has also proven be very resourceful and inventive, (a trait she most likely passed on to her daughter Anais, who has demonstrated similar talents), in this case strategically setting a mine-like trap in a paintballing arena/forest merely using environmental supplies and whatever she took with her. Winning seems to be a necessity for her at times, possibly indicating that she is slightly obsessive. Though despite her somewhat ruthless faults she is able to accept defeat, acknowledge her mistakes, and even find humor in them.

- Main article: Nicole Watterson/Quotes
- She is very athletic, as shown in "The DVD" when she chased Gumball and Darwin across their neighborhood.
- Nicole is voiced by British actress Teresa Gallagher. Although Gallagher does a quite believable American accent, her original native accent sometimes sneaks through. One of the best examples happens on the episode "The Job", in which Nicole says they must stop Richard of executing his new job so the universe as we know it can't be destroyed.
- Nicole seems to approve of Gumball's relationship with Penny, as both kids seem to genuinely like each other, as seen in "The Gi".
- She was named and based on creator Ben Bocquelet's mother, Nicole Bocquelet, a working mother.
- She graduated sometime in the 1980s as shown in "The Ape", further solidifying the fact that she is in her forties.
- Because of Miss Simian calling her a "loser" all throughout her life, Nicole utterly despises the word and Miss Simian as well.
- She was the first character in the series to ever speak (if you don't count Early reel) and, along with Gumball, be shown.
- An episode detailing the origins of her athleticism, as well as her shady past in general, is in development.
- In her yearbook photo seen in Richard's flashback in "The Wand", it is revealed that Nicole's maiden name starts with a G.
- She may be a tabby cat, because when everyone turned into their literal selves in "The Job", she turned into a tabby cat instead of turning into a blue cat while Anais turned into a pink rabbit.
- She sometimes wishes for a normal family, as said by her in "Christmas".
- Nicole has been falsely arrested for weird reasons, such as robbing a store with a hotdog in "The Spoon" and stealing her own car in "The Flakers".
- In "The Castle" and "The Limit", Nicole was shown to have the power to give shocking stares that leave victims in a horrified state.
- In "The Finale", Nicole is able to gain giant muscles, revealing she must be very strong and may be able to gain muscle through the sheer force of will.
- Nicole is very skilled in martial arts, as mentioned in the Water Sons game.
- As seen in "The Club", she goes to an anger management club, yet she still can't seem to control her temper when provoked.
