My leg!
— Fred, various episodes

Fred[6] (Incidental 1[7]/Incidental F1[8]/Incidental 1D[9]/Incidental 1ISH[10]) is a fish who first appears in the episode "Reef Blower." He promptly appears in "My Leg!" and has made many major roles ever since. He is classified as a "hotdog" type incidental.



In most appearances from seasons 1 to 10, he was nameless, except for "Patty Hype" and "Big Sister Sam." In "Patty Hype," he is named Fred, and in "Big Sister Sam," he is named Clint. In season 10, the new showrunners re-adopted the name "Fred" after seeing it on fan-made wikis. They mistakenly believed that Fred was a fan-given name.


Fred is usually voiced by Doug Lawrence, but in many episodes he is voiced by different voice actors:


He is a brown fish with light tan fins and black eyes. He wears brown pants and a black belt with a gold belt buckle.

He is known for the running gag in which he screams "My leg!" when something such as an explosion takes place.
