Quote1 "This is not my home. I am not thief or assassin. I am an X-Man, and I'm never coming back." Quote2
-- Gambit

For much of the series, he is insecure about whether the X-Men trust him, despite being loyal to the team throughout the series. He also has a love-hate relationship with fellow teammate Rogue. 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 the Future's 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 shape-shifting 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" though nothing more seemed to come from this.

Other episodes which featured Gambit include the "Sanctuary" series, which involve 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. Gambit was a member of the X-Men and once taken prisoner by the Genoshan government.
