| Character Information
Ocho is a recurring character in The Amazing World of Gumball. He is a spider designed in 8-bit graphics. He is in Miss Simian's class at Elmore Junior High. Along with Anton, Ocho was also brought into Tina's group by Jamie, but rarely appears as a member. He has an intense temper, as revealed in "The Phone."
Ocho is a small, black 8-bit spider. His design is either a tribute to the design of the alien ships in the arcade game Space Invaders, or one of the Jelectros from Super Mario Bros. 3. Like the alien ships in Space Invaders, Ocho can levitate, and shoot rays that disintegrate objects into cubes, and people (although in "The Phone," Gumball and Darwin are shown to have many lives, like in Space Invaders).
Ocho is mostly nice and friendly when interacting with others. However, agitating him enough causes him to become erratically angry, and begin shouting at and attacking other people.
- "The Third": When Gumball and Darwin consider Tina for their third friend, they witness her squashing him, along with Anton and Idaho.
- "The End": He is seen passing by Gumball's "wedding."
- "The Dress": He was in front of Gumball in the lunch line. He got mad because his lunch was gross.

- "The Curse": He sees Gumball in his clothes from the lost & found.
- "The Flower": He briefly appears on a poster in Carrie's bedroom.

- "The Watch": He is seen on the school bus.

- "The Blame": He is seen in the picture Mr. Small had and can later be seen running into the auditorium with the other students.
- "The Compilation": He is seen singing "Nobody's A Nobody."
- His name is a gag, as "Ocho" means eight in Spanish, which refers to him being a spider and having an 8-bit design.
- Even though he is a spider, he only has six legs. This is probably because of the limits of 8-bit graphics.
- Ocho has his first speaking role in "The Phone."
- Despite his stature, Ocho is strong enough to lift people, as seen in "The Club," when he was hoisting up Gumball.
- The episode "The Phone" was the first episode that revolved around him, though he played a recurring non-speaking role in "The Club."
- Ocho can use cheat codes in real life, as shown in "The Tape."
- He is shown using the Konami Code in the episode.
- Judged by the fact he has been seen on magazines in numerous episodes, he could be famous.
- His only speaking roles are in "The Phone," "The Storm," "The Promise," "The Tape", "The Gift" and "The Code."
- Minus a brief cameo in "The Safety," he had no physical appearance in Season 3, other than appearing in books, magazines, and posters.
- In "The Blame," it is suggested that Ocho used to look like a human being (which resembled Jacob Hopkins, Gumball's current voice actor) and that his 8-bit graphic form is a result of excessive gaming. However, this is probably a non-canon joke.
- Even though it was his first major appearance in an episode, he does not speak in "The Club."
