She is commonly shown wearing a white shirt under a blue t-shirt with a black cat face on top, light brown shorts, and blue and white striped socks. She has blue and white converse-like shoes. She also wears a blue hairclip to pin her hair to the left side of her face.

Gwen is a remarkably smart and quick-witted girl who is the mastermind behind nearly all of her cousin's plans of defeating villains. She plays an active role as the brains of Team Tennyson. She is also wise beyond her years and often gives Ben advice.

Although she and Ben have many disagreements, Gwen often finds a way to get along with him. She is respectful and friendly towards people in general, but she is not afraid to make sarcastic comments towards whom she is arguing or disagreeing with.

Gwen is quite forgiving, considering she more worried than angry at Ben for running away.[1]

Gwen can be a bit tomboy-ish because of how she acts and speaks sometimes. Even though she is usually confident about herself, she still has insecurities about not being useful to Team Tennyson.[2] These insecurities soon leads her to join Zombozo's crew. However she got over them after she and Ben admitted to his selfishness, and started giving her credit.

Gwen has an adoration towards science, things from the 80s and 90s eras, space, and geek culture.



Ben Tennyson

Gwen and Ben get along very well. They argue sometimes but they always end up forgiving each other. Gwen often tries to help Ben fight, but Ben usually ignores her info and rushes into battle. Gwen and Ben are mostly hanging out with each other.

Gwen sometimes partakes in Ben's mischievous behavior. In The Ring Leader, Gwen and Ben snuck out into a wrestling tournament, and Gwen played as his cornerman. In Omni-Tricked: Part 4, Gwen jumped into a volcano just to save Ben from Vilgax. Gwen and Ben both argue over little things, in Half-Sies, Gwen and Ben had a fight over a cupcake, which affected how they could work together in fighting crime. Gwen didn't believe Ben about Frightwig in All Wet, until she found out for herself. She later learned that she should listen to Ben more often.

Ben and Gwen picture in Cirque-Us

In Cirque-Us, Gwen helps Ben save a worker from falling off of a lift. Once again, Ben takes the glory, despite Gwen being the brains. Gwen joined Zombozo and fought against Ben due to this. Ben and Gwen were able to talk it out, and Ben started giving Gwen more of the credit.

Gwen is used to Ben screwing up.[3]

Max Tennyson

Gwen and Max Team

Max mostly takes Gwen's side when Ben and Gwen argue. Gwen and Max sees each other as "team destroy", since they've destroyed so many things villians have created over the summer. Max and Gwen are also pretty playful with each other, as shown in Reststop Roustabout when Max and Gwen were playing outside with flags.



Charmcaster hates Gwen very much. However, Gwen does not share the same feeling. Charmcaster tries to take Gwen out on multiple occasions, but fails each time. In The Charm Offensive, Gwen helped Charmcaster after seeing she was being used by Micheal Morningstar.

Kevin Levin

Gwen seems to be oblivious by the fact that Kevin has a crush on her. Gwen doesn't share the rivalry that Ben and Kevin has. Gwen felt very sad for Kevin after hearing about how no one ever took him to Adrenaland. After all three of them went on a rollercoaster ride together, Kevin balled up a pic of the three having fun. Gwen still felt sorry for what was going on with Kevin. However Kevin saved the picture.
