Carmen is a supporting character in The Amazing World of Gumball. She is a student at Elmore Junior High.


Carmen is an anthropomorphic green cactus with thin black lines for arms and legs. Her eyes and mouth are both black, and her cactus spines seem to serve as her hair.


Carmen is said to be a leader among the girls, meaning that's she's one of the smartest and most capable people in the school. She also puts a lot of pressure on herself and gets extremely upset when she fails at something. Out of all the girls, Carmen is the most serious and focused, dedicating nearly all her time to her studies. She's often seen reading books. Carmen was also in love with Alan the balloon, although this love can obviously never be, because of how readily cactus spines pop balloons.
