Nicole Watterson is one of the main characters in The Amazing World of Gumball. Nicole is the mother of the Watterson family. She 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. The inside of her mouth is light pink and her tongue is pink, and her nose is pink.

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 her Season 2 redesign, 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.

In Season 3, Nicole's eyes are permanently round along with the rest of her family.


Nicole cares deeply for her family, so much 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 is 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 sometimes has an extremely nasty temper that can turn her into a very scary person when upset sometimes. In fact, on one occasion, Gumball decides it'd be easier to face a giant T-rex than an angry Nicole. Despite all that, Nicole is still very benevolent, kindhearted, sweet, and has a softer side at times, and she still loves her family very much, especially her son, Gumball.

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.

Nicole also doesn't like losing, as shown in "The Game"


Nicole is very athletic, and is fully capable of chasing her children across the neighborhood when they are in trouble, as shown in "The DVD." On one occasion, Gumball compared her to a ninja. In "The Remote," she displayed great skills in martial arts, that allowed her to defeat Richard and her sons, and jumping between roofs. Also, in "The Fight," Nicole defeated Mr. Rex and destroyed his house, and in "The Pizza," she defeated some apocalyptic Elmore citizens when they turned against her and her family.

When angry, she is very strong, enough to destroy a door, and can fight and defeat anyone, and completely scare people with her rage. In "The Egg," she can completely transform herself into a red demon-like being and eat any person. Along with this, Nicole can make people fear and do what she wants without a question. Like in "The Castle" and "The Limit," just with one penance stare reduces her victims into a horrified state. In "The Vacation," she can completely burn Richard's marshmallow by just looking at it. In "The Finale" and in "The Money," she can also transform into a hulking version of herself. In "The Password", Richard said that she can turn into a dragon when angry and breath fire.

Main article: Nicole Watterson/Quotes


  • She is very athletic, as shown in "The DVD," when she chased Gumball and Darwin across their neighborhood, and avoided various obstacles.
  • 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 cannot be destroyed. Another good example would be in "The Mothers" when she says "I think this thing is broken.". 
  • Nicole seems to approve of Gumball's relationship with Penny, as both kids seem to genuinely like each other, as seen in "The Gi" and "The Meddler."
  • 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.
  • Nicole is known to get very angry at times. Examples include:
    • "The DVD": Nicole chases her children on an angry dog.
    • "The Responsible": She appears in a background of fire and yells at her children.
    • "The Quest": Gumball says it would be scarier to be told off by Nicole than fight Tina, and even Darwin agrees.
    • "The Club": It is revealed that Nicole goes to an anger management club.
    • "The Helmet": Nicole smashes a Tv angrily.
    • "The Fight": Nicole beats up Mr. Rex.
    • "The Knights": Nicole yells at Patrick for nearly running over Gumball and Penny.
    • "The Authority": Nicole once again appears in a background of fire and attacks Granny Jojo.
    • "The Limit": Nicole rampages through the store.
    • "The Castle": Nicole gives Harold a penance stare that forces him to clean up the house.
    • "The Finale": Nicole prys a door open by gaining massive muscles and turning into a hulking monster.
    • "The Password": Nicole breathes fire when she hears Richard say she can sometimes be a dragon.
    • "The Procrastinators": She threatens to "termominate" her children.
    • "The Pizza": Nicole can grow her head bigger while yelling in a deep voice. She also manages to defeat a group of apocalyptic citizens.
    • "The Egg": Nicole turns into a demon when angered.
    • "The Money": Nicole turns into a hulking monster (parodying The Hulk) again to scold Richard, but was stopped by his charm. She does it again when one of the repossession men come to take their car.
    • "The Return": Richard says Nicole would destroy him if she realized his kids were missing.
    • "The Signature": Nicole partially breaks the glass at the Town Hall and a Xenomorph emerges from her mouth, threatening the Cupcake Man, along with her attacking Granny Jojo earlier in the episode.
    • "The Comic": Nicole forces the shadow person to fix a car and then punches him.
  • 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 hot dog wiener in "The Spoon," and "stealing" her own car in "The Flakers."
  • Nicole is very skilled in martial arts, as mentioned in the Water Sons game.
    • She also proved this in The Remote, as she easily blocked all of her husband and children attacks on her with karate-like moves.
  • As seen in "The Club," she goes to an anger management club, yet she still cannot seem to control her temper when provoked.
  • "Kickbuttus Hystericus," one of Nicole's nicknames, is a reference to the fake Latin used famously in the original Wile E. Coyote/Road-Runner Looney Tunes shorts.
