Gloomy is a fanon character of HTF.

Character Bio

Gloomy is a grey vampire bat whose dark hair covers one of his eyes. He wears a black hoodie with bat wings under the sleeves.

Gloomy is a troubled character who feels as if the universe hates him. His depression borders on suicidal tendencies; but whenever he tries to kill himself, he ends up surviving the vast majority of times. His apathetic disposition means the concept of death does not faze him.

Mysterious, shy and usually keeping to himself, many grow inclined to make speculations about him. Particularly, people will assume he is a vampire. Things especially get dangerous when monster hunters or paranormal investigators come around. Gloomy generally tries to ignore these claims with a scowl, but if put in jeopardy he will simply take it.

Chances are slim that Gloomy is an actual vampire; more likely he is a regular vampire bat victimized by stereotypes. That said, he has two distinct bite marks on his neck (given by Solaris) and a severe allergy to garlic. He also despises sunlight, though being nocturnal it isn't as conspicuous.

  • He is an ironic and unique character because he often survives things that he wants to be killed by, instead of trying to escape such things like most characters.
  • His wings seem to act like a robe when they are closed.
  • He is often ignored by flipped-out characters and creatures that would normally kill everyone else.
  • As shown in Not-so-Happy HolidaysSnobby Affairs, and Make a Good Depression, he may cheer up at the sight of other characters' suffering. This probably helps to ease his own misery.
  • His design went through many different changes. His pants used to be torn and his hair was slightly altered. Beginning in Season 55, his pupils turn dark red instead of black, to prevent them from blending in with his hair. His skin is also now a slightly darker shade of grey, and the design of his wings changed.
    • As of July 2017, he now has a bang of hair covering one eye, a striped shirt, an earring on his right ear, an upside-down nose (resembling an actual bat nose), and torn wings.
    • In August 2019, he was given a black hoodie and a vampirific aesthetic.
  • A regular goof is him being drawn with buck teeth rather than fangs.
  • His Survival Rate is 81.25%.
