| Tina Rex
| Character Information
Tina is a large and extremely fearsome tyrannosaurus. Unlike her father, Tina has a more realistic appearance, with an emotive face and an actual personality. Tina is covered in thick, brownish-grey scales from head-to-tail. She has a huge mouth full of enormous, white carnivore teeth, and very noticeable halitosis.
In Season 2, Tina gets a redesign - she has a more blackish-grey color, and looks more realistic. Her eyes also get less slanted and more circular.
Tina is the resident bully of Elmore Junior High, and is likely one of the meanest and strongest, if not the meanest and strongest out of all of them. She regularly torments her underlings at school, such as Ocho and Anton, both of whom she can stomp on with ease. Jamie is her best friend and partner in crime. It can be said that while Tina is the muscle of the gang, physically torturing her victims, Jamie is the wit, tormenting her victims with barrages of insults.
Tina lives in The Junkyard with her father, which suggests that they are either too poor to afford a house, or too large to fit in one. Tina has apparently never owned a toy before, which caused her to steal Anais' Daisy the Donkey plushie. She claimed that she wanted to give it back, but her loneliness made her want to keep it for herself.
It has also been said that Tina bullies others due to the lack of recognizion for her feminity. It has become something of a self-fulfilling prophecy - she only acts like a monster because she looks like and is treated as a monster.
Tina frequently torments Gumball. This is prominently shown in "The Fight". She chases Gumball throughout the school in the episode, ending with Gumball getting injured due to a fall. When Nicole confronts Tina's father at the end of the episode, Tina tells Gumball that she does all those things to him because she was just having fun.
