Gobba is probably the most energetic member of the Fang Gang. He gets excited easily and is almost always moving. Unfortunately, this need to move around makes him a bit restless and distracted. He loves to have fun, even if it is at the most inopportune times. He often acts before he thinks, and the consequences end up catching up with him in the end.
Gobba is mostly brown in appearance. He has a rounded head with two small eyes that are close together. He has two prominent dark brown lips with large rows of fangs. On top of his head are two dark brown cat-like ears. His body is rectangular. He has long light grey arms with darker grey hands and two dark brown fingers on each hand. He has two very short brown legs with long dark brown feet with lighter brown bottoms. He has a long whip-like tongue inside his mouth.
Gobba has the ability to make totems and other objects by gnawing logs. He also has a whip-like tongue that is sensitive to taste.
Calling All Mixels
- Tongue Twister: Slurp up nearby enemies and bite them for damage.
- Bowled Over: Launch a huge wooden ball to stun and knock back enemies.
- Totem Crash: Drop a ton of totem poles, stunning and damaging enemies.
Little is known about Gobba's early life.
At a party, he managed to get kidnapped by the Nixels, and had to be rescued to help rescue the other Mixels. ("Calling All Mixels")
While he was making totems, he heard Shuff and Volectro's screams for help. With the help of Flurr, he managed to give them a safe landing from plummeting off of a cliff. When Nixels started to swarm, he Mixed with Flurr to distract them. ("Wrong Colors")
When he had a Muck to spend, he debated over spending it at Vulk and Slumbo's Bar-B-Cubes stand or Volectro and Krader's Rock Pops stand. As the two teams competed for his business, they loaded him with free samples. In the end, he chose neither of the stands to buy from, as he was stuffed from the free samples. ("Bar B Cubes")
Search for the Rainbow Cubits
Despite not being the leader of his tribe, he went as the representative of the Fang Gang to get more Hamlogna Sandwiches for the annual Mix Festival, which ended up saving him from being nixed by the Mega Nixel Mixel Nixer. This also forced him to have to go to Mixel Mountain to get Rainbow Cubits. He was the only one to have a Cubit on his person, but wasted it with Kraw to entertain themselves. He Mixed with Flain to defeat a Nixel swarm and bring color back to the festival. When they arrived back, he critiqued Major Nixel's cupcakes, saying that what was missing was "his face". ("Epic Comedy Adventure")
Gobba was one of almost all of the Mixels who searched and fought for the Mixamajig, and then captured by King Nixel. He Maxed with his branch of the Fang Gang in order to defeat him, and Mixopolis was revealed by the Weldos soon after. ("A Quest for the Lost Mixamajig")

Seek out lost items with the taste buds of GOBBA, one of three Fang Gang Mixels with a big appetite in LEGO® Mixels™ Series 2.
Gobba's in-booklet code for Calling All Mixels is SUP3RTAST3R, which is SuperTaster when decoded. Once entered, it will unlock 25 Cubits and Totem Crash.
- He is the first two-legged Mixel to not have joints for his legs.
- He can create totem monsters from logs, and also various wooden items by eating off parts of the log. Strangely, the objects are already colored in and detailed as soon as he's finished.
- Bar B Cubes is the first episode where Gobba actually speaks.
- He was the only member of his tribe not to appear in Fang Gang Log Toss.
- When he chews, his head moves fast enough that it looks like he has multiple heads. The same case happens with Jawg.
- It is shown in Epic Comedy Adventure that he is enthusiastic about using Cubits.
- He is the only Fang Gang member that was referred to by name in the cartoon.
- He surprisingly has the ability to physically taste feelings. The only known taste is sadness, as he states that it tastes salty. The reason for this is because tears taste salty, which explains why sadness is salty. However, it also connects to the real world neurotypical ability Synesthesia, which causes people to have different sense reactions to common things, such as the ability to find taste in a word or an emotion, much like Gobba.
- Despite the fact that his tongue is supposed to be "whip-like", most of the time it is shown at a relatively regular length and thickness, only being shown "whip-like" in dynamic artwork.
- His name is similar to Gobbol.
