Gunther Goth is a pre-made, playable Sim in The Sims that premiered in the Unleashed expansion pack along with his wife, Cornelia Goth, and their two cats, Hecuba and Menelaus. He is the patriarch of the Goth family and Pleasantview.
In The Sims 2, Gunther is one of the pre-created, yet unplayable Sims featured as ancestors of playable, pre-created Sims. Though deceased when the game begins, the player can see him in the relationship tree of playable Sim Mortimer Goth, who is his son, as well as those of his grandchildren, Cassandra Goth and Alexander Goth.
Gunther was born in the Old Country, and then he moved to (and founded) Pleasantview. He is the father of Mortimer Goth, husband to the now famous Bella Goth. Gunther was the husband of Cornelia Goth, and the son of Victor Goth and Gretle Goth, both of Pleasantview; he has one sibling, Frida Goth.
In The Sims 3, Gunther lives with his family, Cornelia and Mortimer Goth, in a large house located by the graveyard. There is no specific mention of him being the founding father of the neighborhood, but he has many good friends and on the Goth Manor is described as the first house built in town. Instead of the Goths being 'heads' of the town, the Landgraab and Alto families seem to have more control over the town, though Goths appear to have been influential in creating the town's ethics.
Gunther has long brown hair, and wears a flamboyant top hat. He also wears some eyeliner. He is a CEO in the business career track, and although married to Cornelia, he does not have an outstanding relationship with her, as their relationship levels aren't high enough to make them WooHoo with each other. This however contradicts Mortimer's bio, which says: "The Goths' strong marriage has produced a healthy boy named Mortimer." Also, it appears that he has never even met Cornelia's sister Agnes Crumplebottom, even though Agnes is Cornelia's best friend. At the start of the game, Gunther is 5 days from becoming an elder.
Gunther's eyes are in a very dark hue of green, but due to the way the eyes are textured, they appear completely black in-game.
Gunther and his wife Cornelia Goth, along with their two cats, Hecuba and Menelaus, first appeared in The Sims: Unleashed. He is the founding father of the neighborhood, which made him very rich indeed. His hair is grey or white around the edges, and black on top, which is a bit odd since his hair in The Sims 3 is brown, but it's possible because he is supposed to represent an elder Sim and not an adult Sim.
He wears a phantom-like dark gray tux with tails and a light grey bow tie. He is a Dean in the education career track, in contrast to his CEO job in The Sims 3. The reason for this is left to the imaginations of individual players. His relationship with his wife appears to have improved greatly and scores a 98/100.
When first played in Neighborhood 1, he will have no relationships with Mortimer, Bella, and Cassandra.
In The Sims 2, Gunther and Cornelia had lost their lives in two separate fires. He died when his second grandchild, Alexander, was born. His wife died a bit later, just before their son, Mortimer, retired. He is buried in the new Goth home with Cornelia, his parents, father in-law and sister in-law.
His hairline has receded since The Sims, and his hair has gone completely grey. He wears a navy blue suit with a striped blue tie. According to his SimDNA in SimPE, his hair was black before it turned grey, implying that he dyed his hair brown in The Sims 3. According to his age data, he had 17 days left in the elder life stage when he died. Oddly, he has partial relations to multiple dead Sims such as ancestors to the Pleasant, Burb, Caliente, Lothario, Dreamer and Oldie families as well as NPCs such as Hula Zombie and the Grim Reaper. His deceased family members, as well as some other dead ancestors also share this quirk.

In The Sims: Unleashed, Gunther lived with Cornelia and their cats Hecuba and Menelaus in a large mansion at 77 Maple Street of Old Town, a little further from Sim Lane. The home has a small graveyard (like almost all Goth homes) but there are no ghosts so it is not known who is buried there. Perhaps, Gunther died in a fire in the mansion, then Cornelia died in the Goth home, which then was re-constructed into a new and improved house for Mortimer, Cassandra and Alexander Goth in The Sims 2. In The Sims 3 Gunther, his wife Cornelia and son Mortimer live in a big house by the cemetery.
Gunther talks excitedly with Iqbal Alvi.
