|This article is about the fictional character. You may be looking for the real life figure.|
Tom wears a blue hoodie, large spiky hair (which he called "Steve" in "Moving Targets"), no eyes, and a spherical head. Sometimes, he is shown to have dark blue jeans whereas at others to have normal grey legwear. Tom wears checkered shoes on his feet which are the set out the same way as a chess board. Tom is the shortest of Edd, Matt, and Tord despite his hair makes him seem taller.
Tom's eyes started off as a black line, but later transitioned into empty, black sockets. He inherited this peculiar trait from his "mother", a bowling ball.
In a second Tumblr post made after the end of Eddsworld: Legacy, Tom offers his intended explanation for his character's black eyes. Edd would often draw Tom with hollow white eyes when he was shocked. He suggested Edd replace his character's unibrow with black circles for easier animation. Tom meant for them to be fully black eyes which were caused by his character being possessed by a demon that would take control of Tom's body when he was extremely angry. Edd decided to take his own approach to the new look and portray them simply as empty sockets.
Tom seems to have a more consistent portrayal throughout his appearances. He is generally portrayed as cynical, pessimistic, and cold. Tom can be smart or stupid depending upon the situation he's in. He does not usually get along with others such as Matt or Tord, and does not enjoy Christmas. Tom is addicted to alcohol, particularly Smirnoff. He also cares deeply for his bass guitar, which he calls Susan.
In "Fun Dead", his "mother" was a bowling ball and his father was a Pineapple, explaining his lack of eyes and spiky hair. In a flashback in "25ft Under the Seat", Tom's "father" was drawn as watermelon due to Edd Gould not being able to draw a pineapple.
