Biography[edit | edit source]

Gudetama is hard to motivate and has a negative, defeatist attitude. On it's official Twitter account's profile comment, it says that it goes through trouble and murmur every day and that it only does its (tweets?) because "great people" told it to. It believes that some day it will be eaten. [5]

It is not always unhappy, as it puts a smile on in a video asking people to vote for it, but unfortunately someone put them down saying that it was "desperate". [6]
