Sargent Gumbo Gumbull, Death Screen

Sargent Gumbo Gumbull is a minor boss fought in the Sugarland Shimmy level of Inkwell Isle Two, and one of the several subjects summoned by the level's primary boss Baroness Von Bon Bon.



He is a devious-looking anthropomorphic gumball machine sported scampering red legs with brown shoes. He has a red nose, a glass head, green eyebrows, a green body with a blue switcher, and a blue cap that resembles a hat.



Gumbull will be selected randomly by Baroness Von Bon Bon for the first phase of the boss battle. Upon summoned, he runs around the arena and shoots gumballs up in the air as they rain down on the players. In Simple mode, he scrambles across the entire arena but won't fire gumballs. In Expert mode, the gumballs rain down faster.

When defeated, his head will shatter apart and his body will scramble away to the left of the stage. Hitpoints = 270/270/320



  • Like the rest of Baroness Von Bon Bon's subjects, Sargent Gumbull's name is not canon but rather a pet name given by the animator Tina Nawrocki in her Twitter post when asked by a fan.
  • If Sargent Gumbo Gumbull is facing to the right when defeated, he will scramble to the end of the screen, then turn back to the left and retreat.
  • His face is slightly transparent.
