The Triangle is an episode of Season 3 of The Amazing World of Gumball.


Darwin joins the school marching band and discovers a talent he never knew he had, which makes Gumball jealous.

Why It Needs to be Angled-Away

  1. Darwin is so unlikeable in this episode because he's arrogant whenever Gumball's around. He also abuses Gumball throughout the whole episode.
    • He rudely took his Swanee whistle away from Gumball, and he blames him for the gum in the whistle.
    • He took the triangle from Gumball with anger.
    • He yells at Gumball, and he tells him to get out.
  2. Gumball gets kicked out of the band and gets banned from the parade.
  3. Everyone is stupid and turns on Gumball, even Darwin, who thinks Gumball was the one who sabotaged his whistle just because Gumball's name has "gum" in it.
    • Even the more smarter or nicer characters also turns on Gumball too, which lead to tons of character derailment.
  4. Gumball doesn't yell nor stand up to Principal Brown for kicking him out of the band or sneak back in.
  5. Principal Brown never apologized to Gumball and even flat out said that he'd expel Gumball if he saw his face again, one of the main reasons why he notably acts like a Karma Houdini who tries to get away scot-free.
    • While Mr. Small is not as bad as Principal Brown, he is rather pointless and serves as filler.
  6. Misleading title: Despite being called "The Triangle", the episode's plot has nothing to do with the triangle instrument that was only mentioned for less than 15 seconds.
  7. Gumball is also unlikeable in this episode since he is jealous because Darwin is good at playing an instrument and tries to stop him from getting to band practice on time.
    • In this sense, this episode is like The Bros or The BFFs, but Gumball is the jealous one instead of Darwin.
  8. The episode doesn’t seem to know who it wants you to sympathize with, at the start it wants you to sympathize with Darwin since Gumball is being cruel and jealous towards him. But later on, it wants you to sympathize with Gumball for losing Darwin when he kinda deserved to.
  9. Ignoring all of these mean-spirited qualities, it's a relatively dull episode with few funny moments.

Redeeming Qualities

  1. The part where Mr. Small bends over and shoves his butt in Darwin's face while saying "Slapping those skins" was pretty funny.
  2. The ending was pretty satisfying.
  3. Gumball becomes more likable after being kicked out of the band. He also thinks Darwin’s act will be sabotaged and tries to stop it.


  • During the scene where Gumball chases Banana Joe, he (while disguised as the Elmore Ducks mascot) draws on a baby’s face, the sound used for the baby crying is the Baby Kate crying sound.
