Not much is known about Gopal's early life. It's assumed that he lived a rather happy life with his father and mother. He also frequents Tok Aba's cocoa shop, being one of the shop's favorite regulars, often asking for free drinks.
Apparently, when he was registered in school, his father, Mr. Kumar, gave the school Gopal's wrong birthdate and as a result, he is put in BoBoiBoy's grade level.
Gopal is a close friend of BoBoiBoy who he met at Tok Aba's Kokotiam. Since that day, they began to get close and often spent their free time playing together, either indoors or outdoors. Since Gopal is best friend with BoBoiBoy, he often asks Tok Aba to give him free drinks and because of that, Gopal owes a lot to Tok Aba.
After Gopal was given the Power Band by Ochobot, he gained the power to turn things into food. With his power, Gopal can turn any object into any thing that crosses his mind. Even so, Gopal often abused his power by turning objects into unhealthy foods and after Gopal got advice from Yaya, Gopal began practicing to turn objects into healthier foods.
At Rintis Island Primary School, Gopal is the Assistant Class Leader in Class 5 Honest . However, Gopal is actually a year older than his classmates. Gopal once recounted, when he was enrolled in school before, his father, Mr. Kumar had given Gopal the wrong date of birth and as a result, he was put in the same class as BoBoiBoy.
When Ochobot was kidnapped by the Bora Ra with the intention of using it to find Klamkabot; an ancient and powerful Power Sphere that hides itself on Earth. Gopal goes with his friends on The Floating Island to save Ochobot and at the same time reveal the secret behind the mystery of the Power Spheres.
Three years have passed since the events that took place in The Movie, Gopal and BoBoiBoy feel bored when they can not use their power because the evil aliens no longer come to Earth and make a mess. One day, Ochobot was suddenly contacted by Koko Ci and asked for help from them. After agreeing to help him find and protect the Power Sphera scattered throughout the galaxy as an insider, Gopal and the others travel across the galaxy.
Gopal was on a mission with BoBoiBoy to rescue EggaBot but due to his mistake the Giant Penguin gets angry and chases them both but he was later saved by Yaya. Due to their success in their mission, they were given permission to return to Earth. Once on Earth, they receive an emergency message from ||Koko Ci]] warning that Retak'ka has returned, and directs them to go to Planet Quabaq.
Out of all the people in BoBoiBoy's Gang, Gopal is one who likes to favor his own desires and needs over others' the most. He is cowardly, which can often be a hindrance in battle sometimes, but this can be quite helpful in some situations since his power grows when he's afraid. Despite having some selfish tendencies, he still has a good heart. He still cares for his friends and he is shown to be worried if they're in trouble.
He enjoys food the most, especially Tok Aba's chocolate goodies at the Cocoa Shop or any other junk food. He always asks Tok Aba for free stuff and has amassed a hefty tab as a result. Gopal is also an opportunist, especially when it comes to benefiting himself or making money, shown when he sells pictures of Fang to said boy's fans and gains "good" money from it. The first time it was shown that he takes advantage of things to help gain him something is when he automatically glues himself to BoBoiBoy after it's revealed that he was Tok Aba's grandson, so he could get free drinks at the Cocoa Shop.
Gopal has a large body, dark skin and crew cut hair. He covered his head with a red band. He was wearing a long-sleeved dark green shirt, a red-edged yellow jacket with a gray and red letter 'G' on his left chest and dark green trousers. His shoes are white.
In the BoBoiBoy Galaxy, Gopal wore a yellow and green shirt with short sleeves, dark green long pants and gray boots. He also wears red arm warmers on his elbows. Gopal skin color is also bright compared to the series.

- Uh, Gopal can change objects into food.
|“||Gopal’s power enables him to transform an object into another object by changing the structure of the molecules. But because his mind is always around food, he instantly changes any of the objects into the food he is thinking about.||”|
Gopal's powers were given by Ochobot, but after BoBoiBoy kicked him into a tree away from Adu Du, Ochobot forgot what powers he gave to Gopal. He tried several times to figure out his power, but it was only after he and his friends were kidnapped by Adu Du that Gopal was revealed to have the power to turn anything he touched into food, which increased in power whenever he's scared.
Later, it's revealed that Gopal actually had the power of Molecule Manipulation mentioned by Ejo Jo's computer, which meant he could rearrange the molecular structure of an object and transform it into an entirely different object, as long as it was not another living being (e.g. people, animals, aliens, etc.).
The reason he could "only" turn things into food was because that's what was constantly on his mind. He's also able to return transformed objects to their original form.
In BoBoiBoy: The Movie, he received a power upgrade that enabled him to turn himself into different materials; turning himself into gold, diamond, and rubber. But in the events of BoBoiBoy Galaxy, he is known to loose this upgrade.
