— Patrick Man, "Patrick-Man!"

Patrick Man[1] is Patrick's superhero alter-ego and the main protagonist of the episode of the same name.


Patrick Man has all of Patrick's features, except with a few more additional ones. He wears a giant ice cream cone on his head and wears his underwear over his actual pants with a belt across it. He also wears blue oven mittens and has a backwards "P" on his chest spelled out in Sea-Nut Butter.


Unlike most heroes, Patrick Man possesses little to no actual superpowers but is seen trying some.

  • Flight: Patrick Man cannot really fly. Instead, he just jumps very high, falls back down and crawls off.
  • Super strength: Patrick Man is able to throw items like tables with ease. Actually, he had this ability even before he transformed.
  • The Pit Punch: This is Patrick Man's only actual superpower attack. He raises his armpit up and a stench fume turns into the shape of a fist and attacks is opponent with a punch. Patrick Man first uses it on the Dirty Bubble to no success.
  • Cone hat: This is not really a superpower, more of a defensive power. Patrick Man wears an ice cream cone on his head to hide his identity. He uses this to defeat the Dirty Bubble.


Patrick first decides to turn into Patrick Man when he steps on a Mermaid Man doll. Patrick Man first heads to the Krusty Krab to show off his new persona. However, Mr. Krabs and Squidward finds him funny but SpongeBob thinks it is cool.

Patrick Man then leaves the Krusty Krab to attend to more heroic duties. His first stop is at Bikini Bottom High School, where he notices two kids doing something. He thinks they were going to fight but one of the kids tries to explain that they were only giving each other high fives. Patrick Man does not believe them and says violence does not solve everything.

Patrick Man is seen again when he notices Mr. Krabs picking up a dollar off of the ground, thinking he has stolen it. Mr. Krabs tries to explain to him that he found the dollar but Patrick Man does not buy it and puts the dollar back on the ground.

He then flies (crawls) away. Patrick Man is seen eating out of a dumpster at Flipper's Donuts when he hears a cry for help. He then goes off to Mrs. Puff's Boating School and finds Mrs. Puff trying to get in the door of a boatmobile. He throws a net over her, thinking she is trying to steal the boat, but Mrs. Puff tries to explain that she was only trying to get the man (Nat Peterson) out of the boat. He does not believe her and writes a note, telling the police that Mrs. Puff is the boat thief, and runs off.

Patrick Man is seen again at the Krusty Krab, telling SpongeBob he plans to unmask one of Bikini Bottom's greatest villains. He then starts pulling on customer's faces until he actually unmasks Mable, revealing the Dirty Bubble (he wanted to unmask Man Ray).

Patrick Man then starts to throw props at the Dirty Bubble but they all go through him. He then throws SpongeBob but the Dirty Bubble just eats him. Patrick Man then decides to use the Pit Punch move but it ends up hitting SpongeBob. As the Dirty Bubble closes in for an attack, Patrick Man bends over to get a Krabby Patty and pops the Dirty Bubble with his cone hat.

Patrick Man is then a hero and SpongeBob asks for an autograph. Patrick Man then takes off his cone hat and eats it, turning back into regular Patrick, thus deciding to retire.

An action figure of Patrick Man is later seen in SpongeBob Comics Annual Super-Giant Swimtacular No. 1, where it is featured in the bonus gallery poster and is sitting in front of Patrick as he plays with other action figures.
