In most of his incarnations, he is a deceitful Frenchman out to con others for his own personal gain. Gold's name is derived from one of the oldest originally created and filed in the patent as that of Mr. Gold, but not previously used in a published game and appropriately represented by a gold-coloured token.
Clue the VCR Game
Gold was played by Michael Dell'Orto. Making his first appearance in the Clue world, M. Gold arrives announcing himself as Mr. Boddy’s lawyer. He takes it upon himself to brief the others of Boddy’s wishes during the will reading. However, he is secretly a conman who hopes to cheat the others out of their earnings along with his foster daughter, Miss Peach. Not surprisingly, he also isn’t really French. He always wears an eye patch that he allegedly needs. And M. Gold goes to Paris, France.
Appearing once again, this time M. Gus Gold portrays a fraudulent art and arms dealer. His works for which he had sold have come under fire due to questionable authenticity. His inept abilities at being genuine are clearly illustrated by his failure to notice the difference between Monet and Manet.
Super Cluedo/Passport to Murder
Once again, Gold makes his first appearance in Britain. Although the character is the same as his Master Detective counterpart, his name had been changed and he was now called Mr. Gold in Passport to Murder and even stranger, called Mr. De’Ath in Super Cluedo. Nonetheless, the character is no longer visually a French stereotype.
