| Character Information
Paperball is a minor character in The Amazing World of Gumball. He first appeared in "The End" while on TV. He is also seen briefly in "The Laziest" and "The Helmet." Lenny appears to be a close friend of his. In "The Boss," it is revealed that he has an evil alter-ego, named Mr. Chanax, the founder of Chanax Inc., who appears when he is unfolded.
Paperball is a bipedal, living ball of crumpled up newspaper. He wears black glasses, and his limbs are scrawny and black as well. His arms are made out of newspaper.
In Season 2, he is slightly changed, as he develops eyebrows, dots for eyes, and a mouth. His legs and arms look different, too.
In and after "The Boss," he gets yet another redesign. He remains the same as he did in Season 2 except there are no newspaper writings all over his body. His eyes are also more "realistic." Despite this, he can be seen in his old design during the car chase in "The Law."
