Gariwald VIII, also known as Great Uncle Gariwald, Gariwald the 8th, Gariwald the Contraption Chap or simply as Gariwald, was Gary's great uncle.

Gariwald VIII was rich, as he owned a very large mansion built by himself. Gariwald also owned a Puffle, and the puffle's color was likely white.


Gariwald VIII was born some long time ago, a descendant of Garugg the Ugg Ugg. His brother or sister soon had children, and one of those children had a son, Gary, making Gariwald Club Penguin Online's resident inventor's great uncle.

In October 2019, Gariwald finally came back to visit Club Penguin Online Island. He went to investigate strange happenings inside the Puffle Hotel. Eventually, though, when he was inside searching, the shapeshifting ghost Skip kidnapped him. Penguins then went to find him and discovered Skip's plan to capture Ghost Puffles and use their energy to haunt the island. However, Skip was defeated and Gariwald was finally freed.


  • Sensei arrived in Club Penguin Online before other penguins arrived, which means that Sensei is possibly older than Gariwald VIII.
  • His portrait appeared in the bottom right corner of the Lodge Attic.
