X-Men: The Animated Series

Gambit was one of the starring X-Men characters in the X-Men animated television series of the 1990s, in which he was voiced by Chris Potter until Potter left in 1996 and was replaced by Tony Daniels until the series ended in 1997.[1] For much of the series, he is insecure about whether the X-Men trust him, despite being loyal to the team throughout the series. In Slave Island, when Gambit, Jubilee, and Storm were captured by Sentinels, he pretends to abandon the captured mutants, but only to escape and return to rescue them. One particular episode (Days of Future Past) features the time traveler Bishop accuses Gambit of betraying the X-Men by assassinating Senator Robert Kelly. The traitor is revealed to be the shapeshifting Mystique disguised as Gambit. One episode explored Gambit's past as a member of the Guild of Thieves and his romantic relationship with Bella Donna. Throughout most of the series, Gambit maintains a flirtatious relationship with Rogue, eventually telling her that he loves her in the episode "Reunion, Part 2".

Other episodes that featured Gambit include the "Sanctuary" series, which involves Professor X, Beast, and Gambit going to Asteroid M to speak with Magneto. On the asteroid, the X-Men were blamed for the murder of Magneto and chased off the asteroid. Gambit stayed behind to give the others a chance to escape. He was later rescued by the X-Men. He also guest-starred in Spider-Man in the 1990s in the fourth and fifth episodes of the second season, along with the rest of the X-Men.

Fantastic Four

Gambit and the other X-Men make a cameo in "Nightmare in Green".

X-Men: Evolution

In the X-Men: Evolution animated TV series, Gambit appeared in a few episodes as a henchman of Magneto, and was voiced by Alessandro Juliani.[1] This version of Gambit is noteworthy for taking liberties with the character, including his origins. Originally, his flirtatious moments with Rogue were meant to be a reference to their romantic relationship in the comics. Towards the end of the show's run, an episode featured Gambit kidnapping Rogue in an attempt to manipulate her into helping him rescue his adoptive father, Jean-Luc, after he was kidnapped by the Rippers (the Assassins Guild). Gambit, however, soon becomes protective of Rogue once he notices Jean-Luc's amazement of her mutant abilities. They part ways at the end on friendly terms, giving Rogue his favorite card, the Queen of Hearts.

In his first appearance, Gambit appeared with normal eyes (black iris and white sclera, as seen in the picture), which were later modified into how they look in the comics (black sclera and red iris).

Gambit shares a passionate kiss with Rogue when she was possessed by Mesmero in the third-season finale (though it was only done so she could take his mutant abilities). In a photograph portrait in the final scene of the final episode, Gambit is a new member of the X-Men (with an arm around Rogue), along with other new members such as Colossus, Angel, Boom Boom, and X-23.

Wolverine and the X-Men

Gambit in Wolverine and the X-Men

Gambit was a guest character in Wolverine and the X-Men, in which he was portrayed as a freelance thief and saboteur for hire. His first appearance was in the episode "Thieves Gambit" voiced by Phil LaMarr.[1][2] He first appears as a thief for hire, who steals a mutant ability-neutralizing collar invented by Forge and sells it to Dr. Sybil Zane and Bolivar Trask to use in the Sentinel Program. Wolverine convinces him to help him retrieve it, though he later escapes the fight without the collar. He appears again in the twenty-second episode, "Aces and Eights," romantically charming and seducing Polaris with his hypnotic charm ability, and attempting to steal Magneto's helmet, as well as placing explosives to damage Genosha's facilities. At the end of the episode, he leaves Polaris, stating that he is not the man she thinks he is and that this is the way the world is; however, he was not seen for the rest of the season. Like in earlier X-Men-related cartoons, Gambit has a strong Cajun accent and wears the usual body armor and coat. His romantic relationship with Rogue was not seen, as well as whether or not he was going to be a regular X-Men team member in the second season.[3]

In the Chaos Engine trilogy, when Doctor Doom uses a Cosmic Cube to rewrite reality, a team of X-Men including Gambit are the only ones to escape being affected by the reality rewrite as they were outside of existence in the Starlight Citadel at the time. When they travel to Earth to find out what has happened, Gambit is killed when he is infected by a techno-virus, sacrificing himself to destroy his body and the prison where the team had been taken while the rest are rescued by the local version of Magneto. However, he returns in the third book when the Starlight Citadel somehow allows his soul to be reborn in the body of the "local" version of Remy LeBeau after the Red Skull uses the Cube to create his own ideal world, allowing Gambit to rescue the local Rogue and rejoin the other X-Men. He is subsequently transferred into his restored original body after Roma is able to retrieve enough fragments of organic material from his original form to regenerate it.[43]

Other media

JC Tremblay portrays Remy LeBeau in the Adi Shankar's Bootleg Universe short fan film Truth In Journalism, in which they are depicted as a French film student directing a documentary on disgraced investigative journalist Eddie Brock (portrayed by Derek Mears), encountering assassin Bullseye (portrayed by Derek Mears) and alien symbiote Venom during its filming.[44][45][46]
