Knowledge can never replace friendship.
— Patrick, in the episode "Patrick SmartPants"

Patrick[2] Star[3] is one of the ten main characters of the SpongeBob SquarePants series. He is SpongeBob's best friend as well as one of his two neighbors.

He is a naive and overweight pink sea star. He is voiced by Bill Fagerbakke and first appears in the episode "Help Wanted."
Rock-a-Bye Bivalve 070

SpongeBob finds out that Patrick's "job" is fake in the episode "Rock-a-Bye Bivalve."

He lives under a rock in the underwater city of Bikini Bottom. SpongeBob and Squidward are his neighbors.

Both Patrick and SpongeBob bother Squidward; though they do it unknowingly and have good intentions. Patrick is the son of Herb and Margie Star and brother of Sam Star.


He was born second of two children: Margie and Herb Star.

Sam was lost at sea when she and Patrick were children. He did not see her again until the episode "Big Sister Sam."

Patrick met SpongeBob when the two were babies, as shown in "The Secret Box."[4]

When he was a kid, Patrick had a tendency to recite poems during gym class, which ruined his reputation and made him a target for dodgeball players, as shown in "Sing a Song of Patrick."[5]

When he was an adult, he moved out and rented a rock house eventually to own it. He lives next door to Squidward.

As revealed in "Home Sweet Pineapple," Patrick was kicked out of his parents' house at one point and never allowed to come back. He thus created his rock, with the only difference being that he added a satellite antenna to it.[6]

At some point, Patrick went to community college with Flats the Flounder, although he forgets what he studied there and likely failed to graduate.[7]

Patrick celebrated two unspecified birthdays in the episodes "The Donut of Shame" and "Overbooked."

One day, when his neighbor Squidward was gardening, a pineapple fell from a ship into the ocean, landing on Squidward's garden creating the pineapple house. Meanwhile, SpongeBob was looking for a house of his own; when all hope seemed lost, SpongeBob and the real estate agent saw the pineapple house's creation and Patty said she had forgotten about the house. SpongeBob bought it. To this day, they have been neighbors.[8]

Later, in the episode “Driven to Tears,” he gained and lost his drivers license, and threw his Bass Blaster 3000 away that he won.

At some point, Patrick learned how to put on a diaper.

At some point, he met Grandma SquarePants.

He once rented out his front yard to a fish named Howard in "New Fish in Town."

He, along with SpongeBob, Squidward, Mr. Krabs, Sandy, and Plankton became superheroes while on land to retrieve the Krabby Patty secret formula from Burger Beard.


Patrick is an overweight, coral-pink starfish with a pointy head, thick eyebrows, and red dots across in his body. In season 1, due to unsteady or cel-animation, his eyebrows were thin, and in the shape of a couple of M's. The flowers on his pants were also dark purple instead of light.

In the beginning in season 2, his eyebrows were slightly thicker and shaped like the letter Z. Patrick is shown to have either a full set of teeth, a single tooth, or sometimes none at all. His eyes are simple black dots and are addressed by such on his driver's license.

However, a facial close-up in "Oral Report" shows that Patrick's eyes are olive green, while in the short "Time Machine" they are purple.

He usually wears lime green pants with lavender flowers on them. The first movie reveals that he wears Goofy Goober underwear, which he wore for three years straight. He changed out of them upon becoming a "man." When sleeping alone, he normally just wears plain underwear, but when he has company, he wears lavender pajamas with pale green flowers on them, along with a matching nightcap.

Unlike most of the other main characters of the series, Patrick lacks a nose. Because of this, he generally cannot smell, as seen in "Something Smells," in which SpongeBob has bad breath. However, in "The Battle of Bikini Bottom," Patrick is able to grow a nose through sheer force of will. In "No Nose Knows," Patrick receives a nose through plastic surgery. He goes through many noses; however, when Patrick tries to get rid of every bad scent, SpongeBob, Squidward, Mr. Krabs, and Sandy deform Patrick's nose by building a giant ball of trash and sewage so the nose can disintegrate.

In "Pet Sitter Pat," he's able to smell, because he thinks Gary has a bad odor even though he smelt his armpit, not Gary.

Creation and development

Stephen Hillenburg first became fascinated with the ocean and began developing his artistic abilities as a child. During college, he majored in marine biology and minored in art. He planned to return to college eventually to pursue a master's degree in art. After graduating in 1984, he joined the Ocean Institute, an organization dedicated to educating the public about marine science and maritime history.[9][10] While he was there, he initially had the idea that would lead to the creation of SpongeBob SquarePants: a comic book titled The Intertidal Zone.[11] In 1987, Hillenburg left the institute to pursue a career in animation.[11][12]

A few years after studying experimental animation at the California Institute of the Arts,[12] Hillenburg met Joe Murray, creator of the Nickelodeon series Rocko's Modern Life, at an animation festival, and was offered a job as a director of the show.[11][13][14][15] Martin Olson, one of the writers for Rocko's Modern Life, read The Intertidal Zone and encouraged Hillenburg to create a television series with a similar concept. At that point, Hillenburg had not even considered creating his own series. However, he realized that if he ever did, this would be the best approach.[10][16] Production on Rocko's Modern Life ended in 1996.[17] Shortly afterwards, Hillenburg began working on SpongeBob SquarePants.[10]

For the show's characters, Hillenburg started to draw and used character designs from his comic book—including starfish, crab, and sponge.[10] He described Patrick as "probably the dumbest guy in town".[18] Patrick Star was conceived as a starfish to embody the animal's nature; according to Hillenburg, starfish look "dumb and slow," but they are "very active and aggressive" in reality, like Patrick.[19] Hillenburg incorporated character comedy rather than topical humor on the show to emphasize "things that are more about humorous situations and about characters and their flaws."[20] He designed Patrick and SpongeBob as such because "they're whipping themselves up into situations—that's always where the humor comes from. The rule is: Follow the innocence and avoid topical [humor]."[21]

In spite of being depicted as having a good temperament or state of mind, Patrick has been shown in some episodes to have a tantrum. Patrick's emotional outbreak was originally written only for the first-season episode "Valentine's Day," where SpongeBob and Sandy try to give Patrick a Valentine's Day gift, and "was supposed to be a one-time thing."[22] However, according to episode writer Jay Lender, "when that show came back it felt so right that his dark side started popping up everywhere. You can plan ahead all you want, but the characters eventually tell you who they are."[22]

Every main character in the show has its own unique footstep sound. The sound of Patrick's footsteps is recorded by the show's Foley crew, with a Foley talent wearing a slip-on shoe. Jeff Hutchins, show's sound designer said, "[Going] barefoot makes it tough to have much presence, so we decided that Patrick would be performed with shoes on."[23]


Patrick's voice is provided by actor Bill Fagerbakke, who also does the voices of numerous other characters on SpongeBob SquarePants. While creating the show and writing its pilot episode in 1997, Hillenburg and Derek Drymon, the show's then-creative director, were also conducting auditions to find voices for the show's characters.[24] Fagerbakke auditioned for the role of Patrick after Tom Kenny, SpongeBob's voice actor, had been cast. Fagerbakke said, "Steve is such a lovely guy, and I had absolutely no feeling for the material whatsoever." He described his experience in the audition, saying "I was just going in for another audition, and I had no idea what was in store there in terms of the remarkable visual wit and really the kind of endearing child-like humanity in the show. I couldn't pick that up from the audition material at all. I was just kind of perfunctorially trying to give the guy what he wanted."[25]

Fagerbakke referred to Patrick as "AquaDauber," a reference to his role as Michael "Dauber" Dybinski on the 1990s sitcom Coach in the first few years of working on the show.[26] Patrick is "enormously entertaining to portray" because, according to Fagerbakke, "when I'm performing Patrick, there are many secrets that I could never divulge".[27] Fagerbakke's approach in voicing Patrick is "much the same way I would do [to] any kind of character."[25] "I'm always looking for opportunities to explore that freewheeling imagination and insanity of children. To be able to plug in to that and let that carry you in to a performance is such a gas, I have so much fun with that. I love kids; I raised two girls and I love being a parent," he said.[26] The cast members record as a whole cast. Fagerbakke says that the situation improves his performance as a voice actor because "there is something remarkable that happens when people are working together that is unique to that."[26] Fagerbakke modeled his performance whenever Patrick is angry after that of American actress Shelley Winters.[28]

Fagerbakke has been compared to Patrick's character, which he concurs with. Kenny said that "Bill [Fagerbakke] is a big guy. The world is almost too small for him. He's a force of nature, like Patrick."[29] Writer Jay Lender said, describing Fagerbakke in the recording studio, "Bill Fagerbakke is the most thoughtful performer I've ever seen in the booth—he was always asking questions and really trying to get into the mindset, such as it is, of Patrick."[22] Writer Kent Osborne said of Fagerbakke, "He is this big guy, and he plays Patrick so well. He's just this big guy, and he lumbers around."[30] Fagerbakke said, "I'm clumsy. I'm goofy. I make mistakes all the time" and agreed that "I guess I'm a lot of Patrick."[27]


Patrick's portrayal is pleasant, overweight, lazy, dim-witted, unmannerly, naïve, and generally ignorant. Despite being a full-grown adult, Patrick acts immature for his age and partakes in many childish activities with SpongeBob. Patrick's personality is similar to SpongeBob's, but they are not interchangeable, as SpongeBob is a lot more intelligent, responsible, optimistic, mannerly, and down-to-earth than Patrick. His dim-wittedness often annoys SpongeBob. 

Valentine's Day 097

Patrick ravaging.

He has a short temper and can get triggered to large extents if something upsets him. In "Nature Pants," Patrick goes on a psycho-spree throughout Jellyfish Fields and attempts to kidnap SpongeBob when the latter decides to live with the jellyfish. In "Valentine's Day," Patrick causes mass disruption at the carnival in retaliation for having yet to receive a present from SpongeBob. In "Big Pink Loser," Patrick furiously scrapes the top of a broomstick on the Krusty Krab floorboards out of anger that he can't do anything right. In "The Fry Cook Games," he goes berserk when SpongeBob erases a part of his name tag to make it say "Rick." In "No Weenies Allowed," Patrick gets angry whenever he is called "Tubby," and punches SpongeBob in response to him addressing him like that.

Due to his lack of superiority in contrast to the other characters, Patrick suffers from low self-esteem and can exhibit varying levels of jealousy when witnessing the success of others. In "Valentine's Day," he expresses jealousy toward everyone who received a gift and invokes revenge by causing disruption at the carnival and breaking everything in sight. In "Big Pink Loser," Patrick expresses anger toward SpongeBob for receiving abundant awards and having the ability to do everything right. In "No Hat for Pat" and "Patrick-Man!," Patrick shows jealousy to SpongeBob for having a job and special worker's hat. Patrick's jealousy is also a driving point on the plot in "No Nose Knows," where he expresses his remorse over being in the minority of citizens without a nose, prompting him to get one through plastic surgery. In "The Executive Treatment," Patrick willingly impersonates an executive out of jealousy of their exclusive ability to purchase a special Krabby Patty variety. In "Big Pink Loser," Patrick models his rock after SpongeBob's pineapple to emulate the latter's lifestyle.

Doing Time 050

Spongebob and Patrick in Chili.

He also joins in with the exploits of others (usually SpongeBob) to fit in. In "Mid-Life Crustacean," Patrick, SpongeBob, and Mr. Krabs attempt to steal Betsy Krabs' panties, as part of the "panty raid." In "Doing Time," Patrick assists SpongeBob in his local bank robbery scheme, intent on getting arrested to free Mrs. Puff from jail. In "Opposite Day," he and SpongeBob impersonate Squidward and claim his house as their property, intent on annoying the real estate agent and preventing Squidward from moving out of town. In the post-movie seasons, Patrick and SpongeBob have a frequent tendency to disrespect Squidward's privacy and follow him around as a means to show their affection towards him. Throughout "Spy Buddies," SpongeBob and Patrick follow Plankton everywhere he goes, suspecting that he has some ulterior motive. In "SpongeBob's Last Stand," Patrick and SpongeBob resist the government-approved construction of Shelly Superhighway by holding up protest signs and performing a song about it. Their motive for this was to enforce the environmental safety of Jellyfish Fields, above which the highway is being constructed. The police eventually notice the boys rebelling against the government's authority and imprison them in the middle of nowhere. In "Chocolate with Nuts," as a means to boost their profit as salesmen, SpongeBob and Patrick spread lies to their customers about the chocolate bars they're selling, claiming them to have special abilities. In "Ink Lemonade," he and SpongeBob sell Squidward's ink to the public and categorize it as lemonade. The opposite effect has also occurred with Patrick encouraging SpongeBob to join in with his exploits. In "Hooky," Patrick encourages SpongeBob to ditch work and go to the "carnival" with him.

Patrick has an unusual mean streak that - depending on the episode, is either exhibited out of jealousy, low self-esteem, acquired situational narcissism, or simply stupidity. This is best shown in "Valentine's Day," when after he sees that SpongeBob gave a present to everyone except him, he goes on a rampage, and destroys everything he sees, despite the fact that SpongeBob wanted to give him a present. He is also shown to lose respect for others and become obsessed when obtaining some form of power, talent, wealth, or publicity, and it usually drives him apart from SpongeBob. In "Rule of Dumb," when he becomes the king of Bikini Bottom, he abuses his authority by stealing from others and using his fame to cover up his arrogant attitude, acting like the world revolves around him. In "Karate Star," Patrick gains a talent in karate and obsessively uses it regardless of the circumstances, until SpongeBob talks him out of it at the end. In "Patrick-Man!," Patrick's superhero alter-ego goes to his head and causes him to frame innocent citizens for crimes. It is not until he realizes how tedious being a hero is that he stops. In "Goodbye, Krabby Patty?," Patrick becomes famous and rich as a result of his new occupation as the frozen Krabby Patty mascot, which causes him to betray SpongeBob on account of having superiority over him. In "The Executive Treatment," Patrick is arrested for posing as an executive so as to buy the Executive Treatment sandwich.

Ol' Reliable With Patrick 2

Angry Patrick attacking Spongebob.

This behaviour has manifested itself physically. Patrick is shown to be a very harmful pet sitter to Gary in "Pet Sitter Pat." He forces him into a bath, crinkles his skin with a hair dryer, and lastly threatens and even nearly kills him with a flamethrower. In "FarmerBob," he abuses some of Old Man Jenkins' barn animals in a very stupid manner. In "Jellyfishing," oblivious to the fact that he can't hold his net due to his bandages, Patrick forcefully shoves the end of a jellyfish net in Squidward's injured tentacle, adding insult to injury. In "Band Geeks," he starts a fight with Sandy to "do some kicking," as instructed by Squidward, though Patrick interprets this literally. Patrick also punches SpongeBob in "No Weenies Allowed" for insulting him. In "Wigstruck," Patrick notices SpongeBob wearing a wig; believing that it is a monster attacking him, Patrick assaults SpongeBob to rid him of said wig. In "Oral Report," Patrick increases SpongeBob's oral anxiety by assaulting him with several objects like a treadmill and pillows. In "The Good Krabby Name," Patrick beats up SpongeBob as he is dressed up in a Krabby Patty costume, believing that a killer Krabby Patty is eating SpongeBob; however this was done with good intentions, as Patrick did it out of defense. In "Nature Pants," Patrick follows SpongeBob around Jellyfish Fields and attempts to abduct him with his jellyfish net to bring him back home. In "It's a SpongeBob Christmas!," Patrick surrounds his rock with booby traps to capture Santa. This attempt backfires on Patrick when he himself gets stuck in the traps. He succeeds in kidnapping Santa in the end, though. In "Valentine's Day," Patrick causes pure disorderly conduct at the carnival by running around, yelling, and breaking everything in sight.

Wet Painters 110

This extends to damaging property owned by others. In "Christmas Who?," he and SpongeBob chop down Squidward's coral tree without his consent. In "Wet Painters," Patrick destroys Mr. Krabs' computer by smashing it on the dollar to eliminate the paint stain. In "Squidtastic Voyage," he destroys the control panel of Sandy's submarine with an ax. In "Spy Buddies," he melts the roof of the Chum Bucket with his laser pants. In "Pat No Pay," Patrick's misuse of the trash disposal causes the Krusty Krab to explode. In "The Card," Patrick endangers a trading card that belongs to SpongeBob throughout. In "Karate Star," Patrick's love for karate goes to his head, and results in him karate-chopping nearly everything he sees in public, eventually leading to the destruction of the Barg'N-Mart. In "Big Sister Sam," he allows his sister to demolish SpongeBob and Squidward's houses. In "Sandy's Nutmare," when Sandy learns that her tree is dying, Patrick attempts to chop down her tree for the wood with a hatchet. When Sandy tells him she can save her tree with science, Patrick throws the hatchet, which makes a hole in the treedome for water to come through.

His rudeness became more serious as the post-movie era approached: Patrick had a mean streak in the pre-movie seasons but was mostly apologetic and regretful of his actions, and had a kindhearted personality overall. In the post-movie seasons, not only does Patrick rarely show any remorse or regret toward his rudeness, but he also lacks responsibility for his actions and is willing to throw others under the bus for his own wrongdoings, like in "Stuck in the Wringer" where he blames SpongeBob for the condition he's in, when it was really Patrick's fault for gluing him to the wringer. He also scolds people when they have a right to be hostile and angry, as seen in "Big Sister Sam" when Patrick singles SpongeBob and Squidward out for their disapproval of his sister's havoc wreak. However, in "The Fish Bowl," Patrick actually does show remorse over his selfish and rude ways, marking a rare occasion in the post-movie era where this has happened.

Patrick is shown to have a hypocritical side, as he never follows any of the advice he gives SpongeBob: In "Grandma's Kisses," he tells SpongeBob to act like a grown-up but later behaves like a baby himself. When SpongeBob points out his hypocrisy, Patrick says that being a "grown-up" is boring and that he likes being a baby. In "Something Smells," when SpongeBob believes that he is shunned by everyone in town because they think he is ugly, Patrick tells him that he should accept his ugliness. Later, Patrick thinks he caught SpongeBob's ugliness and refuses to accept it, declaring that he was once one of the "beautiful people;" however in reality, it was their bad breath that caused the townsfolk to ignore them. In "Yours, Mine and Mine," Patrick agrees to share the kids meal with SpongeBob, but later eats it all and persistently hogs the Patty Pal toy; when SpongeBob tries to reason with him, Patrick scolds SpongeBob over his lack of sharing, when Patrick himself is hogging the toy. In "Little Yellow Book," Patrick is among the many people who laugh at SpongeBob's secrets and joins in on lambasting Squidward for doing so when SpongeBob runs away crying, throwing fruit at Squidward and calling him a "diary reader." When Squidward points out that Patrick also read the diary, Patrick blows him off and accuses him of "blaming everyone else."

Despite this, he still wants to help his friends, even if he doesn't do it right. In "Sun Bleached," Patrick helped SpongeBob get a tan but neglects SpongeBob by going out with a group of women, essentially leaving SpongeBob in the tanning booth for a protracted amount of time and resulting in development of a "sun bleached" tan. In "Suds" and "The Splinter," Patrick acts like a doctor to SpongeBob despite not having a college bachelor's degree or doctor's insurance license, leading to disastrous treatment. He enjoys nothing more than spending time with SpongeBob, and will always turn to him when things don't seem right or when he wants to show off something that he thinks he succeeds in, even though he rarely does if ever. Patrick is a nice person at heart and has had many positive interactions with the townspeople; he even genuinely cares about Squidward despite the latter's open hatred of him and SpongeBob.

164b - Pet Sitter Pat (534)

Patrick and Gary inside SpongeBob's flooding house.

Even with good intentions, Patrick often does not take account of the environment or individuals around him. In "Life of Crime," he and SpongeBob resort to making crazed noises in the middle of the street upon discovering their new identities as "criminals," with the townspeople mistaking them as street performers. SpongeBob and Patrick are put in jail for "stealing" a balloon, only to be paroled a few seconds later since it is National Free Balloon Day, thus disqualifying the act as a crime. Patrick also engages in a fight with Sandy during music class in "Band Geeks." In "New Student Starfish," SpongeBob and Patrick engage in an argument in the middle of the school hallway. In "Sing a Song of Patrick," SpongeBob and Patrick hijack a radio broadcast signal to blast the song "I Wrote This" at night throughout the entire town. This causes the citizens displeasure and leads them to form a mob. In "The Battle of Bikini Bottom," the boys run into the Krusty Krab while having a fight over clean and dirty, disturbing the peace of Squidward, Mr. Krabs, and the customers. In "Stuck in the Wringer," SpongeBob and Patrick engage in a verbal fight in the middle of the carnival. In "Yours, Mine and Mine," Patrick and SpongeBob fight over the Patty Pal toy in various public places. Throughout the middle of "Doing Time," SpongeBob and Patrick attempt to free Mrs. Puff from jail without consent from correctional officers. In "Sandy's Rocket," SpongeBob and Patrick invade Sandy's spaceship without her permission and use it out of personal gain. In "Christmas Who?," SpongeBob and Patrick add Christmas decorations to Squidward's house despite his objections. In "Pranks a Lot," SpongeBob and Patrick, while disguised as ghosts, make unauthorized and disruptive alterations to the Krusty Krab by gluing the doors shut, replacing the windows with rubber, and clogging the toilets. In "Pet Sitter Pat," Patrick messes up the interior of SpongeBob's house as a result of threatening Gary with a hose and flamethrower. In "Patrick-Man!," Patrick's fight with the Dirty Bubble trashes the Krusty Krab. In "The Good Krabby Name," Patrick uses SpongeBob's absorbency to stamp several messages promoting the Krusty Krab on a building and back of a truck, per Mr. Krabs' advertising campaign. A police officer notices this and considers arresting them for graffiti, but, influenced by the vandalism's message, instead heads off to the Krusty Krab to order a Krabby Patty. In "Sing a Song of Patrick," Patrick steals a hundred dollar bill from SpongeBob and uses it to enter a contest, fully acknowledging that he used a dollar without the owner's consent. In "Smoothe Jazz at Bikini Bottom," Patrick steals concert tickets and backstage passes that were meant for Squidward and SpongeBob, and eats them, believing they are food. In "No Pictures, Please," Patrick puts on a hat that was dropped by a guide and wears it throughout, not thinking twice about returning it to its owner.

029a - Survival of the Idiots (094)

Patrick taking off his helmet in Sandy's Treedome.

Furthermore, because Patrick feels he is doing the right thing, he often trespasses to get what he wants. SpongeBob and Patrick have a frequent tendency to enter Squidward's house without his consent, which reaches its epitome in "Good Neighbors." Additionally, in "Survival of the Idiots," he and SpongeBob enter Sandy's treedome during the winter with little regard to the "Keep Out" sign on the door. In "Pranks a Lot," SpongeBob and Patrick trespass into many people's houses to traumatize them while under the identities of "ghosts." In The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie, the duo trespasses into the Thug Tug without presenting ID prior, although they did this to retrieve the key to the Patty Wagon that was stolen by the boat jacker, so this can be justified. In "The Lost Mattress," Patrick and SpongeBob trespass the fence of the dump on Squidward's behalf, however, it is mostly Squidward's fault for making them do it in an attempt to get them murdered by the guard worm. In "The Thing," SpongeBob and Patrick trespass into the sewers to hide from the SWAT Team. In "Toy Store of Doom," SpongeBob and Patrick stay in Toy Barrel past its open hours and hide in a dollhouse so as not to be caught by the security guard. In "No Pictures Please," Patrick trespasses many people's homes while giving an enthusiastic stranger a tour on his favorite places in Bikini Bottom. In "Spy Buddies," Patrick and SpongeBob sneak into the Chum Bucket at night through the roof, despite the door allowing entrance; they did this since spies apparently do not use the door to enter places. In "Safe Deposit Krabs," SpongeBob and Patrick break into the local bank at night, although they had good intentions since they did it to free Mr. Krabs from the safe.

Much of this has involved Patrick being caught up in breaking rules and endangering others. In "Restraining SpongeBob," Patrick violates a restraining order filed against him by walking beyond his set limits. He is arrested off-screen for doing so. In "Big Pink Loser," Patrick's inability to do anything right angers him to the point of scraping the top of a broomstick on the Krusty Krab floorboards, which creates a mass amount of dust clouds and interferes with the customer's ability to eat and breathe pure oxygen. In "Sentimental Sponge," Patrick's house is shown to be full of garbage, which takes up a majority of the house's capacity, though he is not reprimanded by the sanitation police, unlike SpongeBob and Squidward. In "The Donut of Shame," Patrick offers SpongeBob one half of a doughnut that he contaminated with his own saliva, dropped in the toilet, and stored in the back of his underwear. Due to this, SpongeBob potentially consumed Patrick's own oral ecology as well as C. difficile and E. coli; SpongeBob is shown notably sick as he eats the doughnut. In "Ink Lemonade," Patrick and SpongeBob sell Squidward's ink to the public under the guise of lemonade, which eventually causes health problems to its consumers. In "Sandy's Rocket," SpongeBob and Patrick go around abducting the townspeople and trapping them in Sandy's spaceship out of fear that the entire population is formed of aliens. In "I'm Your Biggest Fanatic," he kidnaps Jeffrey the Jellyfish at the end. In "It's a SpongeBob Christmas!," Patrick abducts Santa Claus with a jellyfishing net.


Patrick is well known for his dimwitted, naïve, and lazy nature. He wants to spend time dwelling in his rock and lacks common sense, which often means that he is incapable of doing things right, as explained when he was briefly employed at the Krusty Krab when trying to earn an award in "Big Pink Loser." Patrick occasionally lacks a basic understanding of everyday concepts and tends to make up his own words.

In some episodes, Patrick has trouble with even the most rudimentary tasks and displays little common sense or intelligence. His memory can be appalling and he can forget how to do the most instinctual of actions, such as eating or falling over. He once forgot that he ate a chocolate bar the second after he ate it in "Life of Crime," and can't open a jar without assistance in "Big Pink Loser."

Patrick seems to be aware of his stupidity and annoyance to others, as many throwaway lines in some episodes indicate: In "Home Sweet Pineapple," Patrick asks SpongeBob if it's already time to ruin Squidward's day upon waking up. In "I Had an Accident," when Sandy asks Patrick if he has to be stupid elsewhere, Patrick replies, "Not until 4:00." In "The Card," when SpongeBob expresses concern toward Patrick endangering a rare trading card, Patrick replies, "You can't expect my usual brand of stupidity. I like to mix it up a little, keep you on your toes." In "Tentacle-Vision," when Squidward asks him, "Just how dumb are you?," Patrick replies, "It varies." In some episodes, he is shown to be even smarter than SpongeBob, most notably in "Jellyfishing," when he realized that Squidward doesn't like them, but SpongeBob didn't.

Of note, Patrick's stupidity became more exaggerated as the post-movie seasons approached: Instead of being naïve but with hidden intellect, Patrick became so painfully stupid to the point of forgetting the most obvious details about his best friend. This is best exemplified in "You Don't Know Sponge," and is also a driving point on the said episode's storyline.

At other times, he can appear almost so brilliant that it surprises the other characters, and is prone to fits of temporary intelligence, which confuses the other characters. In earlier episodes, Patrick appeared to be somewhat more intelligent, often making profound comments and often being very articulate, such as when he, having messed up Mr. Krabs' first dollar with SpongeBob, complained about the fact that his first dollar is just an ordinary dollar and he should replace it with another ordinary dollar, though he forgets about it at the end and ends up buying a candy bar, much to SpongeBob's dismay.[31] In "Help Wanted," Patrick was shown to be more competent when it came to giving advice, as he encouraged SpongeBob to apply for his lifelong dream job. In "SB-129," Patrick seems to be aware of Squidward's hatred toward him and SpongeBob, though in later episodes he is just as oblivious as SpongeBob in terms of their annoyance to Squidward.

Patrick seems to detect malice and sarcasm more easily than SpongeBob. He also displays witty banter at times and often can be sarcastic. He is generally well-intentioned but often inadvertently causes trouble, for both himself and also his friends, such as in "Patrick-Man!" when he gets Mrs. Puff arrested and trashes the Krusty Krab, although he also ended up saving the Krusty Krab from the Dirty Bubble.

Interests and hobbies

Patrick mainly likes to dwell under his rock and act lazy and unproductive. He usually partakes in sitting on the couch, watching TV, eating junk food, and sleeping. However, he does go outside every now and then, typically to hang out with his best friend. Whenever doing so, he and SpongeBob like to indulge in their two favorite hobbies: bubble blowing and jellyfishing. He is also shown to enjoy sand-boarding[32][33], even if he is not very good at it. In addition to bubble blowing and jellyfishing, Patrick and SpongeBob have a fondness for engaging in childlike activities, such as playing pretend, toys, and board games, as exemplified in numerous episodes over the course of the series, like "Toy Store of Doom" and "A Friendly Game."

Patrick has an obsession with junk food, and will stop at nothing to fulfill his enormous appetite. He is a Krusty Krab regular and enjoys eating their Krabby Patties, as well as Triple Gooberberry Sunrises from Goofy Goober's Ice Cream Party Boat. He has a bizarre taste in food and has low standards when it comes to appetite: His favorite flavor of ice cream is Dill Pickle Swirl with mustard and bacon bits[34], and he enjoyed some of SpongeBob's peanut onion sundae in "Something Smells." He has a frequent tendency to rummage through garbage cans and dumpsters and eat the thrown-away food they have to offer.[35] Patrick has shown himself willing to consume inedible sources, and notably enjoys them: In "Little Yellow Book," he proudly eats diapers covered in ketchup. In "Pet Sitter Pat" and "Gary's New Toy," he has no problem eating snail food.

Like SpongeBob, Patrick's favorite television series is The Adventures of Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy. He idolizes the titular duo and views them as role models in that Patrick and SpongeBob occasionally dress up as them and emulate their heroic antics.

Patrick also seems to be a fan of the rock band Stingray 5000, as he expresses remorse upon witnessing a copy of one of the band's albums in the dumpster in "Missing Identity" and shows his appreciation for their music.

Patrick is shown to idolize Jeffrey the Jellyfish, and once exhibited an unhealthy obsession with him by persistently touching him despite the security guard's objections, and eventually succeeded in kidnapping him.[36]

Patrick and SpongeBob like to go to Glove World!, a glove-themed amusement park in Bikini Bottom. They show their dedication to the park by buying its merchandise and wearing their marketed apparel.[37]

Antagonistic roles

Ink Lemonade 096

Patrick scaring Squidward with no remorse.

Despite his general kindness, Patrick has done some villainous acts that affect one or more of the Bikini Bottomites, including his friend SpongeBob. This is a list of episodes where he plays an antagonistic role:

  • In "Tea at the Treedome," Patrick's fancy advice gets SpongeBob dehydrated in Sandy's treedome. As Patrick was manually helping SpongeBob, he soon becomes dehydrated as well. Him drying out is karma, but his actions can be forgivable since he is at least trying to help his friend.
  • In "Jellyfishing," oblivious to the fact that Squidward can't hold the net due to his bandages, he forcefully jams the net through his tentacle, putting Squidward in extreme pain.
  • In "Sandy's Rocket," he and SpongeBob hijack Sandy's spaceship and catch every Bikini Bottomite with Sandy's net gun, mistaking the citizens for aliens. When Sandy finds out about this, the two kidnap her. Afterwards, Patrick shoots himself with the gun after SpongeBob suspects him of being an alien.
  • In "Nature Pants," when SpongeBob decides to live away from home, an unstable Patrick attempts to capture him and keep him in a jar on his mantle. When SpongeBob escapes by jumping into the jellyfish hive, Patrick gives up, snaps his net in half, and walks home crying. However, he did not have malice intent as he just wanted to have SpongeBob's company back.
  • In "Opposite Day," he and SpongeBob break into Squidward's house and later annoy his realty agent to the point where she refuses to let Squidward sell his house. As punishment, Squidward chases them out of town with his bulldozer.
  • In "I Was a Teenage Gary," after he hears Gary, SpongeBob, and Squidward as snails meowing, he aggressively throws silences them by throwing a boot at Squidward, knocking him down from the wall.
  • In "SB-129," he and SpongeBob bother Squidward until the latter runs to the Krusty Krab and hides in the freezer, trapping him inside and freezing him for 2,000 years into the future. Unlike SpongeBob however, who believes that Squidward is "just not ready," Patrick knows very well that he doesn't want to play with them.
  • In "Suds," though Patrick offers help to cure SpongeBob of his suds, he tells him that the hospital is a bad place and gives him unprofessional treatments, worsening his condition. Later, Sandy realizes that Patrick was endangering him and decides to get SpongeBob to a real doctor, as well as telling Patrick that he should be arrested for impersonating a doctor, which is a criminal offense. At the end of the episode, Patrick becomes jealous of SpongeBob getting a lollipop for his treatment and pretends to get sick. Purple Doctorfish gives Patrick treatment--which is an aching treatment for sea stars--as karma for giving SpongeBob bad treatments and impersonating a doctor.
  • In "Valentine's Day," after SpongeBob fails to present a gift to Patrick, he concludes that the former must hate him and goes on a violent rampage throughout the carnival in which he rips off the costume of a man portraying heart man, destroys a bunch of balloons, attempts to destruct the Heart-a-Whirl, and steals a terrified child's lollipop and noisily eats it in front of him. He eventually corners SpongeBob and the rest of the innocent bystanders at the end of boardwalk in a very violent manner. Once Sandy shows up, Patrick realizes that SpongeBob had indeed gotten him a gift and his anger is forgiven.
  • In "Texas," he and SpongeBob insult Texas so Sandy will become furious and chase them to the Krusty Krab. While this may not count as antagonism as they merely wanted to bring Sandy to the Krusty Krab, the way they insulted Texas is already considered rude.
  • In "Hooky," he endangers SpongeBob by playing on the hooks and using peer pressure to get him to join, ignoring repeated warnings from Mr. Krabs not to do so. Karma got him when he was caught and placed in a tuna can.
  • In "Life of Crime," he accuses SpongeBob of eating his chocolate bar even though he had just eaten his own a moment earlier, tells SpongeBob that he stole the balloon even though he was the one who told SpongeBob that they can borrow the balloon, and ultimately threatens to tell the police on him.
  • In "Dumped," after Gary neglects SpongeBob in favor of Patrick's company, the latter becomes condescending to SpongeBob as a result of his newfound prosperity and shows no remorse for his loss. At the end of the episode, it is revealed that Gary only favored Patrick for a cookie in his pocket and subsequently returns to SpongeBob. Thus, karma hits Patrick when he himself is left heartbroken over his betrayal, pitying SpongeBob's previous depression.
  • In "I'm Your Biggest Fanatic," he touches numerous props in the convention despite the security guard's objections and also captures Jeffrey the Jellyfish, even though he told SpongeBob that hero worship is unhealthy.
  • In "Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy III," he and SpongeBob unfreeze Man Ray's prison chamber despite being told not to. Later, Patrick gets fed up with Man Ray attacking him, so he grabs the remote and, after Man Ray gets the question wrong, activates the Tickle Belt even though the question he asked has nothing to do with being good. He and SpongeBob fight over the remote, destroying it in the process.
  • In "Squirrel Jokes," he criticizes SpongeBob for his terrible jokes, tells SpongeBob to perform squirrel jokes, and is condescending to Sandy. However, the former case may not count, as Patrick is entitled to his own opinion.
  • In "Pressure," he, SpongeBob, Squidward, and Mr. Krabs make fun of Sandy to show that sea creatures are better than land creatures.
  • In "The Secret Box", he prevent SpongeBob from seeing the secret on his secret box. After SpongeBob snatching the box from him, he pulled off SpongeBob's arms and threatening him if he take his box again, their friendship was over. Later that night, he caught SpongeBob stealing his box and showing him a piece of string in the box. After SpongeBob leaves, he revealed that he keeps the "embarrassing picture of SpongeBob at the Christmas party" on his box.
  • In "I'm with Stupid," SpongeBob volunteers to act stupid around Patrick's "parents" in an attempt to improve their opinion of their son. However, Patrick takes the act too far, to the point where he actually begins to believe that SpongeBob really is stupid. All the insults and embarrassment from Patrick and his "parents" eventually proves too much for SpongeBob, who runs away screaming and crashes through the wall of Patrick's house. Patrick was also too stupid to realize that the people weren't really his parents; the end of the episode culminates in Patrick reuniting with his real parents, Herb and Margie Star.
  • In "Sailor Mouth," he and SpongeBob use foul language. This may not count as antagonism since they didn't know they were using bad words.
  • In "Sandy, SpongeBob, and the Worm," he negotiates with everybody to push Bikini Bottom elsewhere in the unfortunate scenario of the Alaskan Bull Worm taking over, making the worm fall on the city and crush everyone except SpongeBob and Sandy. Considering the danger the worm could have brought to the city, this action can be justified.
  • In "Club SpongeBob," after weeks of starvation, SpongeBob and Patrick are presented with food from a falling aircraft. Patrick is oblivious of Squidward's interest in eating the smoked sausages, consuming them as Squidward sniffs them. He and SpongeBob then take away the table of food from Squidward before he even gets the chance to take a bite. When the Magic Conch Shell refuses to let Squidward eat, Patrick tries asking it if Squidward could have a sandwich, with the conch still refusing. He then asks if he can have it, with the conch allowing him. If the conch was automatic, Patrick took away Squidward's chance of having something to eat.
  • In "Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy IV," he plays with the shrunken Squidward, thinking he's an action figure. He then tries to punch him even after SpongeBob tells him he's the real Squidward, until SpongeBob tell him that the situation is serious because he doesn't know how to un-shrink him. Patrick, unknowledgeable of SpongeBob's current predicament, suggests an asinine resolution in which he suggests that SpongeBob turn the 'M' on Mermaid Man's belt upside-down for 'Wumbo', showing no rationality whatsoever. This later proves not to be antagonism, as Mermaid Man himself later suggests the same thing, showing that even he as the owner isn't knowledgeable of how to operate his belt.
  • In "Rock-a-Bye Bivalve," he fails to do his fair share of work in taking care of Junior, claiming that he's too tired from work. Each night, he promises to assume responsibility for the baby the following night, but repeatedly fails to do so, even when SpongeBob shows him the obscene amount of diapers he has to change. At midnight, SpongeBob finds out that "work" consists of Patrick watching TV under his rock, eating junk food, and neglecting Junior. At the beginning of the episode, out of plain stupidity he nearly steps on Junior but is stopped by SpongeBob due to the scallop's vulnerability.
  • In "New Student Starfish," he draws a cruel picture of Mrs. Puff and passes it on SpongeBob's desk, making her think SpongeBob was responsible for the picture, which makes him cost one of SpongeBob's "Good Noodle Stars" on the Good Noodle Board and ultimately culminates in SpongeBob sitting in the back of the classroom as punishment. While SpongeBob is sitting in the back, Patrick throws various school supplies and fires spitballs at him to get his attention, just to say "hi," making SpongeBob angrier, but this only gets him into more trouble with Mrs. Puff. Later in the corridor, Patrick tells SpongeBob that he finds it funny, making SpongeBob lash out at him. He clearly does not care that he got SpongeBob in trouble because he angrily remarks that his rank on the Good Noodle Board was unimportant. Despite this, during detention, he finally shows remorse for what he did, when the light bulb warming Roger dies out.
  • In "Mid-Life Crustacean," he and SpongeBob get Mr. Krabs in trouble with his mother for the "panty raid" they did in her house. They also did not tell Mr. Krabs that they were in his mother's house, although this is because they didn't know.
  • In "Pranks a Lot," he and SpongeBob trespass into many houses and terrorize everyone and attempt to burn a dollar bill that belongs to Mr. Krabs, all while posing as invisible ghosts, which they became through the usage of the Invisible Spray. However, when Krabs douses the fire, they are busted nude. Though Krabs claimed he was on mutual terms with the boys, SpongeBob and Patrick's comeuppances are served by being seen nude in a public spotlight at the Krusty Krab, presented by Mr. Krabs, which viewers are the people the two pranked.
  • In The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie, Patrick, bragging about SpongeBob's capabilities, reduces the latter's required days to get King Neptune's crown from 10 to six, resulting in SpongeBob and Mr. Krabs to clobber and assault him. He tries to further reduce the required days to five while getting strangled by Mr. Krabs, even after King Neptune has already settled for six days. This action would be forgivable, if it wasn't for the punishment that would be inflicted making it past the deadline.
  • In "Once Bitten," Patrick causes and spreads the rumors of "Mad Snail Disease" and practically caused the whole conflict in the first place. He even doubted SpongeBob wasn't a zombie.
  • In "Wigstruck," he attacks SpongeBob because he thought that the latter's wig was a monster.
  • In "Hocus Pocus," he tries to eat the ice cream cone that SpongeBob believes is Squidward. Even after SpongeBob reveals this, Patrick's only response is to eat it faster, citing that the octopus-turned ice cream tasted good.
  • In "Driven to Tears," he eats SpongeBob's flash cards, making him fail. Then he attends Mrs. Puff's Boating School, suspecting that Mrs. Puff was setting up SpongeBob's tests so he would constantly flunk, and passes almost effortlessly. Afterward, he rubs his license in SpongeBob's face every chance he gets, ridiculing him and calling himself a "driving genius" despite having ran red lights and made dangerous U-turns. SpongeBob finally gets sick of it and destroys Patrick's license. Patrick is arrested for littering and sentenced to prison time. However, SpongeBob confesses to the "crime" and takes Patrick's place in jail. The two friends reconcile when SpongeBob is released from prison.
  • In "Rule of Dumb," he is crowned King of Bikini Bottom and becomes a ruthless tyrant, thinking he has the right to take whatever he wants, regardless of what harm it brings to others, to the point of outright stealing. After weeks of ruining everyone's lives for his own personal gain, Patrick goes too far by hiring a construction crew to move Squidward's house in order to set up a Ferris wheel, without Squidward's permission. Squidward starts a revolt against Patrick among the townspeople, and Patrick impulsively intimidates Squidward in order to show his power, even scaring SpongeBob away at this point. When Patrick looks into the mirror and sees a monstrous version of him, he becomes horrified by what he has become, decides that friendship is more important than power, and happily abdicates the throne when it is discovered that he is not the true king.
  • In "Sing a Song of Patrick," he uses a hundred dollar bill that he found in SpongeBob's wallet to enter a contest, fully acknowledging that the money belonged to his friend but taking it anyway. Patrick's song also causes a ton of damage on Bikini Bottom, and causes the death of the band that performed it due to its abhorrence, which Patrick does not seem at all bothered by. His song's broadcast destroyed the town who formed a mob. By the end, Patrick is pelted with dodgeballs as karma for his actions.
  • In "Pat No Pay," he claims that he doesn't have the money to pay for his bill at the Krusty Krab despite assuring otherwise beforehand. When he is forced to work to make up for it he ends up destroying the restaurant in the end by throwing a bag of money down the trash compactor.
  • In "The Battle of Bikini Bottom," after SpongeBob realizes Patrick never washed his hands, they start a war, with SpongeBob being clean and Patrick being dirty.
  • In "SpongeHenge," he kicks SpongeBob out of his house just because a jellyfish stung him and calls SpongeBob a negative influence.
  • In "The Splinter," he once again impersonates a doctor. When he does unrelated treatments on SpongeBob, he threatens to heave him be when he is questioned. When he finds the splinter, he uses a hammer to jam it further into SpongeBob's thumb, causing it to swell. He then infects the injury with trash and leaves.
  • In "No Nose Knows," he gets a nose job so he can have the ability to smell and not feel isolated from his friends. Although it proves to be peaceful at first, his new superiority eventually goes to his head and causes him to overreact to minor bad odors in that he rids Squidward of a natural-smelling cheese, plunges SpongeBob's pores to counteract his sweat during a workout, and lastly places candles on the tables in the Krusty Krab to fight against the food's grease, all with a condescending attitude. As karma, SpongeBob, Squidward, Mr. Krabs, and Sandy create a giant ball consisting of trash and present it to Patrick, which proves to be so repulsive that it disintegrates his nose, finally ridding him of it. However, his friends seemed to feel sorry for his loss, as they subsequently hold a funeral for Patrick's nose. On a side note, the episode does end well for Patrick, as he is shown to have undergone plastic surgery again, this time to get ears, which most of his friends visibly lack.
  • In "The Card," he promises a valuable trading card to SpongeBob and is completely careless when handling it and eventually destroys it right in front of SpongeBob, knowing that he promised it to him. This episode also heavily implies that Patrick acts stupid on purpose to get away with his sociopathic behavior.
  • In "To SquarePants or Not to SquarePants," he doesn't recognize SpongeBob when he is wearing his new round pants and even kicks him out of his own house. He even tells SpongeBob that he is not "SpongeBob SquarePants" due to his recent change in fashion. It was technically his fault why SpongeBob was wearing round pants in the first place as he lets SpongeBob wait too long on the phone with his spluttering, which eventually makes the washing machine shrink his pants. In the end, he realizes his mistake after Mr. Krabs and SpongeBob point it out to him.
  • In "Ditchin'," Patrick forces SpongeBob to ditch boating class for the book signing of Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy and practically caused the whole situation in the first place. 
  • In "Shuffleboarding," Patrick places two kids in jail for "loitering" when in reality they were just playing on an outdoor kiddie ride. SpongeBob finds that illegal until a security guard throws away a Krabby Patty. The two then put nearly everyone else in jail. At the end of the episode, Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy get chased by the jailed Bikini Bottomites, which Patrick was responsible for.
  • In "Sand Castles in the Sand," SpongeBob and Patrick declare war with their sand creations, making this one of the rare moments when SpongeBob considers Patrick his enemy.
  • In "Tentacle-Vision," Patrick, like the other Bikini Bottomites, trespasses into Squidward's house uninvited and eventually ruins his show.
  • In "Stuck in the Wringer," he gets SpongeBob stuck in his wringer by super gluing him in. This gets SpongeBob to get kicked out of his job, sustain multiple injuries, unable to eat anything, and later to develop mental illness. He also selfishly eats SpongeBob's ice cream and gloats his winnings at the carnival in SpongeBob's face. The following day, after SpongeBob lashes out at him, he wants to forget about SpongeBob but he realizes he cannot so he enters his house to find the mentally ill SpongeBob. Horrified by this, he blames himself for super gluing SpongeBob in his wringer and starts crying but his tears melt the glue and free SpongeBob from his wringer.
  • In "Greasy Buffoons," he tries to eat SpongeBob, believing him to be a "Crunchety Munchety" at the end of the episode, but he didn't know because SpongeBob absorbed the grease.
  • In "Yours, Mine and Mine," he shows a much more selfish nature than normal. He refuses to share a toy SpongeBob technically bought. He had been hungry, but had no money, so SpongeBob bought him a meal to share and Patrick ate all of it. He then complained he didn't get a toy so Mr. Krabs quickly made one. SpongeBob loves it but Patrick, despite seconds before hoarding the meal all to himself and actually tells off SpongeBob and says that they had been sharing the meal so he wants a turn with the toy, his idea of sharing apparently being that SpongeBob pays and he gets. He keeps it all night and the next day refuses to share even for a split second. SpongeBob and Patrick continue to fight over the toy and Patrick ends up saying, "If I can't have it, no one can." He then eats the toy in front of SpongeBob and gives a satisfying sigh. Mr. Krabs tells them he made a lot of the toys because they were so successful, offering to give them both a toy with payment. Patrick says that it's on him this time, only to take SpongeBob's wallet to spend his money. When SpongeBob complains about this Patrick replies, "Have you learned nothing about sharing?," showing Patrick's hypocritical side.
  • In "Back to the Past," he caused many problems whenever he eats the tartar sauce.
  • In "Karate Star," he becomes obsessed with his karate chop move that he began chopping various buildings and objects. This may not count as an antagonistic role due to Patrick not meaning to go mad with his power, but he did cause a huge amount of destruction in Bikini Bottom.
  • In "Big Sister Sam," he is oblivious to his sister's aggressiveness when she hurts SpongeBob and Squidward and even destroys their houses and he shows no consideration for his friends and even hypocritically accuses them of being mean, when really he and Sam are the ones being mean. He also scolds them for being mad about it. Patrick later realizes his error after it is pointed out to him by SpongeBob. His karma for letting these events go on is having his own house destroyed by his angry sister and being crushed in a hug by her, though he doesn't mind.
  • In "Sentimental Sponge," Patrick's advice to SpongeBob about savoring his "sentimental stuff"--which was his garbage--gave a negative effect on him, and his neighbors as SpongeBob began to savor more junk.
  • In "Frozen Face Off," he betrayed the gang by helping Plankton to open the secret formula. Though this was out of stupidity and not maliciousness.
  • In "Oral Report," he caused SpongeBob's oral report anxiety by asking to be moved to the back of the class, falling asleep, yelling "Boring!" and then "Next!" He then starts assaulting him with many obstacles, such as pillows, a treadmill, dressing as Mrs. Puff to give him a detention slip after the latter he made the mess, and saying "Speech" in a charging voice. Patrick only stopped when SpongeBob told him to stop. He also broke SpongeBob's underwear goggles, increasing his oral report anxiety.
  • In "Ghoul Fools,” after he realizes Lord Poltergeist is an actual ghost, he is willing to selfishly allow them to take SpongeBob just to save himself. This led Poltergeist to sarcastically remark "Pretty good friend, you got there." He later gets his karma when Mr. Krabs hits him in the face with his tongue and is sent to the void.
  • In "Pet Sitter Pat," he eats Gary's food right in front of him and later bathes him too hard which causes the house to flood. He also chases Gary down with a flamethrower. He also considered using salt to dry Gary, despite the fact that snails dry up if they come in contact with salt.
  • In "Smoothe Jazz at Bikini Bottom," he eats Squidward's concert ticket for no reason, and later gets into the concert for unknown reasons. He later eats Squidward's and SpongeBob's backstage passes and goes backstage. He also jumps up onstage and blatantly interrupts the concert.
  • In "Restraining SpongeBob," he constantly annoys Squidward and then attacks him when he thinks he was a monster, completely oblivious that Squidward's sea berry allergy went off until SpongeBob points out to him.
  • In "It's a SpongeBob Christmas!," Patrick lays Santa traps around his rock to capture Santa but ends up getting caught in the traps and at the end of the episode, he snags Santa in a Jellyfish Net.
  • In "The Good Krabby Name," he attacks SpongeBob when he thinks he was eaten by a giant Krabby Patty costume SpongeBob was wearing. He and SpongeBob then destroy a lot of stuff, injuring people in the process.
  • In "Patrick-Man!," he ran around town falsely accusing people of crimes. He then throws SpongeBob at the Dirty Bubble and destroys the Krusty Krab.
  • In "Little Yellow Book" he mocks SpongeBob for calling his spatula "Fifi," saying 'yeah, cook me up a Krabby Patty... with good old Fifi' in a demeaning tone. He later throws a tomato at Squidward for reading the diary, even though he read it as well and laughed at his friend, while being a hypocrite to Squidward pointing it out.
  • In "The Fish Bowl," Patrick was told by Sandy that he was in charge while she is doing her experiment of behavioral psychology. During the experiment, Patrick starts to get carried away with being in charge and selfishly took advantage of his own privileges and took advantage of SpongeBob by making him do whatever he tells him to do. He then torments SpongeBob by spilling the black sand all over the white sand after he has finished counting them. He even eats SpongeBob's ice cream cone and his bowl of ice cream in order to torment him further. When SpongeBob tries to leave, Patrick traps SpongeBob by locking the door and says that he isn't leaving until he says so and Patrick and SpongeBob fight. After Sandy explained everything that's been happening, Patrick realized he was being incredibly selfish to his friend and felt remorseful about his actions.
  • In "Two Thumbs Down," he refuses to give SpongeBob his job back after his thumbs get better. This causes SpongeBob to challenge him to a thumb war. SpongeBob wins at the end, which is considered karma for Patrick.
  • In "Sandy's Nutmare," when Sandy learns that her tree is dying, he attempts to chop down her tree for the wood with a hatchet. When Sandy tells him she can save her tree with science, Patrick throws the hatchet, which makes a hole in the treedome for water to come through. This definitely counts as antagonism, as he was hurting the tree in the first place, damaged the treedome, and also said, "Good, we can use the wood," which showed that he clearly did not care that the tree was dying.
  • In "Bulletin Board," he constantly wrote insulting notes on the bulletin board while being under the name, P-Star7. His actions were considered forgivable at the end since he felt upset because people took everything he said the wrong way.
  • In "Krusty Katering," he selfishly keeps and seeks to keep all of the Krabby Pâté for himself, and goes on a rampage like a wild animal.
  • In "Sanitation Insanity," he impulsively refused to give SpongeBob and Squidward his trash cans for no reason and growls and barks like a rabid dog. He then engages them in a trash fight. However, their reckless fighting causes them to spread trash all over Bikini Bottom. As punishment, he, Mr. Krabs, SpongeBob, and Squidward were sentenced to many hours of community service by picking up trash.
  • In "Pat the Horse," Patrick eats the Krabby Patty that SpongeBob was to deliver since he was hungry. After deciding to become a crab, he steals Mr. Krabs' arms and runs off with them after the latter chases him. Since Mr. Krabs has arms, Patrick presumably returned them.
  • In "Ink Lemonade," he intentionally keeps scaring Squidward in attempt to get his ink for black lemonade, even having no remorse when Squidward becomes paranoid due to Mildred the sea spider.
  • In "Krusty Kleaners," SpongeBob and Patrick clean a lady's office without her consent; she opposes since she already has a robot clean for her.
  • In "Appointment TV," he forces SpongeBob to find his home in an Impound Yard despite his objections. He even ignores SpongeBob's pleas to ride him back home.
  • In "FarmerBob," he abuses some of Old Man Jenkins' barn animals in a very stupid manner.

Abilities and talents

Patrick, although mentally weak and naïve, has many skills, such as:

  • CPR administration: In "Naughty Nautical Neighbors," Patrick shows the ability to utilize CPR as he uses it to save Squidward after he nearly chokes on a fork. He also displays his CPR administration skills in "Squidward the Unfriendly Ghost" when he and SpongeBob believe that they "killed" Squidward, albeit to no avail since in reality Squidward wasn't dead, rather they accidentally destroyed a wax sculpture of him.
  • Dancing: Patrick once jazz-danced with SpongeBob in "Squidtastic Voyage" and wanted to go square-dancing with Squidward in "Just One Bite," but Squidward didn't want to do it, which made Patrick feel sad.
  • Disguising: In "That's No Lady," Patrick stays in disguise as "Patricia" for a long time. He takes off the suit, embarrassing Squidward and Mr. Krabs.
  • Doing absolutely nothing: In "Big Pink Loser," he gets an award for "doing absolutely nothing longer than anyone else." In "The Pink Purloiner," he does nothing for 8 hours straight, while SpongeBob is spying on him. In "Stanley S. SquarePants," Patrick shows SpongeBob and Stanley the art of doing nothing.
  • Driving: Patrick has shown to be an excellent driver, unlike SpongeBob as seen in "Driven to Tears." He also gives SpongeBob proper advice on how to ace his boating test in "Boating School."
  • Drumming: When it comes to music, Patrick's main instrument is the drums. He was the lead drummer in the Bikini Bottom Super Band.[38] He also drums in "Squidward's House Party," "Tentacle-Vision," and at the end of the "Campfire Song Song" in "The Camping Episode." He also plays a drum solo on his stomach in "Krabby Road."
  • Eating: Patrick is shown to have an enormous appetite and can swallowing large amounts of food in one bite. In "Pressure," Patrick eats a Deluxe Krabby Patty in one bite. He also eats an entire table of breakfast foods in "Rock-a-Bye-Bivalve." He was once able to eat 1,000 Krabby Patties in 5 minutes, which is seen in "What's Eating Patrick?" Patrick seems to be able to use his mouth like a vacuum cleaner, as seen when he devours the various picnic foods in "Club SpongeBob" and the high quantity of Krabby Patties with extra cheese in "Pat No Pay."
  • Jellyfishing: Patrick sometimes forgets how to jellyfish, however once reminded, he does it particularly well.
  • Karate chopping: In "Karate Star," Patrick is a skilled karate "genius" at chopping. However, his hand started to go out of control and he cut it off, regenerating his limbs like SpongeBob in "Graveyard Shift."
  • Performing extreme stunts: Patrick is sometimes an ultimate daredevil, as seen in "I Had an Accident" and "A Life in a Day." In the latter, he performed several dangerous acts in order to emulate Larry's lifestyle, although he gave up when he learned of how life-threatening this can be. He also does a few moderately extreme stunts in "Extreme Spots."
  • Regeneration: In "Karate Star," Patrick goes completely crazy and rips his arm off which a new Patrick grew from. Once he explained to SpongeBob starfish regenerate their arms, they were both fine with it.
  • Seahorse riding: In "Dunces and Dragons," Patrick does not know how to ride a seahorse; however, in "A Life in a Day," he can do it particularly well.
  • Singing: Patrick has never had a solo and rarely sings; however, he does it fairly well when he does.
  • Staring: Patrick is good at staring with SpongeBob in their staring contest game in various episodes.
  • Strength: Patrick is shown to be very physically strong; in many episodes, he can lift his rock. In "What Ever Happened to SpongeBob?" and "Squid Baby," he is strong enough to lift the entire road. In many video games, such as Battle for Bikini Bottom, The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie video game, and SpongeBob's Atlantis SquarePantis, his special ability is to pick up and throw heavy objects and even his friends. Also, in "Patrick-Man!," he throws really heavy objects with ease and in "The Play's the Thing," he is shown to throw an anchor with ease. However, in "Krusty Krushers," he cannot even tear a piece of paper apart and then gets a paper cut. In "Sandy's Nutty Nieces," Patrick was able to beat all three of Sandy's nieces at once in an arm wrestling match. It may be possible that Patrick doesn't know his own strength at times, which is probably due to his stupidity.
    Sandy's Nutty Nieces 179

    Patrick beats Sandy's three nieces all at once.

  • Survival skills: In "To Save a Squirrel," he and SpongeBob nearly eat each other to survive. He also made earmuffs out of his own belly button lint so they could play without Sandy harassing them in "Survival of the Idiots." He also made warm clothing out of her fur.  

Near-death experiences

Patrick has a number of near-death experiences, but he rarely gets injured. He mainly gets injured because of his stupidity. He also gets hurt due to his reckless jellyfishing.



Patrick's house.

Patrick lives under a rock on 120 Conch Street, two doors down from SpongeBob, right next to Squidward, and 400-yards away from the Krusty Krab. His ID licenses show his address, one from "Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy III" and another from "Driven to Tears." The home's exterior is featureless, apart from a small, yellow weather vane, which has fallen off on numerous occasions. In some episodes, the rock has nothing under it, while in others, his house has an interior, like in "Patrick's Staycation," "The Donut of Shame," "No Nose Knows," and other episodes. As shown in "I'm with Stupid," he makes his own furniture but he is too lazy to make it sometimes, explaining the different states of his house.

Rise and Shine 11

One of the insides of Patrick's house

Sometimes, Patrick sleeps on the ceiling of his rock, although far more often he sleeps in a regular bed. Patrick spends much of his day sleeping under his rock. There are many inconsistencies in the depictions of his house due to the nature of the cartoon and utility treatment of backgrounds: In one episode, his house's depiction is nothing but a bed and a chest of drawers, yet in others, he appears to have a kitchen and a living room. In addition, certain episodes tend to depict the surface below the rock to be completely flat, while in others there is a considerable amount of depth below it. Patrick claims to have built the house himself. In "New Fish in Town," he puts his front yard up for rent. In some episodes, particularly the pre-movie seasons, he only has a TV and a chair in his house.

As Nickelodeon said of Patrick's house in a commercial bumper: "What's really beneath this famous rock? The home of Patrick Star. While the outside never changes, a closer look inside reveals that Patrick's house is never set in stone. Sometimes, there's just sand. Other times, there's a small den. Occasionally, there's a large master bedroom. And there's the Multi-Room Complex featuring an eat-in kitchen, arched doorways, and a hi-def TV. Rock on!"


I'm with Stupid 205

Patrick's parents - Herb and Margie.

Herb Star

Patrick has had many jobs. However, he is not very good at any of them. He is currently unemployed. The following is a list of occupations that Patrick has held over the course of the series:


An alternate Patrick exists in the universe seen in the shorts "What if SpongeBob was Gone." Without SpongeBob, he cannot jellyfish properly.

Bearded Patrick

Another alternate Patrick existed in the timeline where the Krabby Patty secret formula was never returned to Bikini Bottom after being stolen by Burger Beard the Pirate. This caused Patrick to rapidly age and grow a long beard. He encountered SpongeBob and Plankton when their time machine sent them 4 days into the future, where he was sitting on the sand-covered ruins of the Krusty Krab. He said that unlike everyone else; he still hadn't given up on SpongeBob because he wasn't very smart. He waved goodbye to them after they were horrified by the outcome.



SpongeBob and Patrick have been best friends ever since they were born.[4] They have spent a large majority of their life together and are very close to one another. Patrick cares about SpongeBob very much as shown in a multitude of episodes. He often tries to give SpongeBob the best advice he has even if it's very illogical. He also is shown to go to great lengths for SpongeBob such as trying to make SpongeBob his "trophy" just so that he and SpongeBob could be together again. He also shows great sorrow when not around SpongeBob, which he has mentioned frequently. He even followed SpongeBob to the bitter end on their journey to Shell City. Though he has been on bad terms with SpongeBob many times throughout the series, they always come back together as best friends.


Patrick, along with SpongeBob, often annoys Squidward, although he thinks he is one of his best friends, Squidward doesn't reciprocate the "friendship." Unlike SpongeBob, Patrick has actually noticed that Squidward didn't like them but was incorrectly assured by SpongeBob they were his friends. Squidward, for the most part, thinks Patrick is annoying and dumb, even worse than SpongeBob. He has sometimes gotten along with Squidward though, such as "Naughty Nautical Neighbors" and "Band Geeks," although they only last for short amounts of time as Squidward regularly shows his contempt for Patrick or the latter gains the sense to be annoyed with Squidward like in "Wishing You Well." Despite that, Squidward is actually Patrick's best friend after SpongeBob as he defended Patrick as shown when he quickly stopped Mr. Krabs from scamming a naive Patrick of his ice cream coupon in "Patrick's Coupon."

Sandy Cheeks

Patrick and Sandy are close friends. Although Sandy has numerously been annoyed by Patrick's utter stupidity and on occasion has threatened to (as well as has) attack Patrick as shown in "Texas" and "Survival of the Idiots," the two usually get along very well.

Mr. Krabs

His relationship with Mr. Krabs is a complex one, for the most part, Mr. Krabs thinks Patrick is too dumb to be bothered with, although he sometimes takes him as an employee and occasionally acts as a father figure toward him, as seen in "Sailor Mouth" and "Hooky." Usually, when Patrick acts as an employee for Mr. Krabs, it doesn't end well, as when in "Big Pink Loser" when he was a disaster of an employee, or "Restraining SpongeBob" when he was so much worse than SpongeBob as a middleman, Squidward actually replaced SpongeBob with Patrick on the restraining order.


Patrick and Plankton have only interacted a few times, but the times they do interact Plankton often despises his idiocy. In the episode "Chum Bucket Supreme," Patrick helps Plankton get customers by creating a slogan. In the episode “Bucket Sweet Bucket,” Patrick, along with SpongeBob, attempt to help Plankton renovate the Chum Bucket.

Mrs. Puff

Patrick and Mrs. Puff barely interact, but when they do, Patrick often shows a dislike for her. In the episode "New Student Starfish" he calls her "A big fat meanie. " In the episode "Patrick-Man!" he gets her arrested because he thought she was trying to break into someone's car.

Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy III 063

Patrick's Citizen Identification


Patrick's driver license

  • Patrick has an innie belly button, as seen in "You Don't Know Sponge."
  • Patrick appears to be able to fly, as seen in "The Sponge Who Could Fly" and "Night Light."
  • His lifelong dream is to defeat the Giant Monkey Men and save the ninth dimension, as revealed in "Big Pink Loser."
  • According to his driver's license, Patrick weighs 2 ounces.
  • In seasons 1 through 3, Patrick had been shown with plenty of teeth, but in the post-movie seasons, he has been shown with only one tooth.
  • A running gag, which was mostly used in season 1, is that when Patrick opens up his rock while lying on it, he slips off of it and falls into his living room.
  • Patrick's mouth occasionally functions as a vacuum cleaner when in contact with an abundance of food.
  • In "Christmas Who?," Patrick calls pencils "writing sticks."
  • Patrick refers to his eyes as his "looking holes." [39]
  • Patrick's Citizen Identification card number is A1359723.
  • Unlike SpongeBob, Patrick is shown to be a good driver, as seen when he helps SpongeBob in his driving test in "Boating School."
    • In "Driven to Tears," he earns a perfect score and gets his license, though his driving is shown to be terrible.
    • In "Slide Whistle Stooges," he is shown driving again.
  • "The Bully" reveals that he went to community college.
  • Every time Patrick sees mermaids, he falls in love with them, as seen in "Welcome To The Bikini Bottom Triangle" and in The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie.
  • In "Graveyard Shift," it is revealed that Patrick wakes up at 3 AM to eat a Krabby Patty.
  • When Patrick thinks, his brain releases foul-smelling steam.[5]
  • Patrick's favorite color is aquamarine.[34]
  • Patrick had no sense of smell in "Something Smells," but could later smell in "Rock-a-Bye Bivalve." He also wished he had a nose in "No Nose Knows" and briefly in "Missing Identity," though it is shown in "The Battle of Bikini Bottom" that he had the ability to grow a nose, and has a small nose hole, as seen in "Wet Painters" and "That's No Lady."
  • As seen in "Christmas Who?" and "Sing a Song of Patrick," he does not know how to use a pencil. However, in "Patty Caper," Patrick is able to draw Squidward perfectly.
  • In "Truth or Square," it said that Patrick's real name is "Patrick Sea-Star," not Patrick Star.
  • In some episodes, his real last name is stated to be "Starfish" instead of "Star" or "Seastar."
  • In many episodes, when something confuses Patrick, he usually says "I don't get it."[40]
  • The concept of Patrick being stupid is based on the appearance of the sea star; slow and dumb, but in fact, they are crafty and bright.
    • It is also based on the fact that real starfish don't have brains.
  • Patrick has arachnophobia because in "Home Sweet Pineapple," when SpongeBob's house is gone, he keeps on having nightmares about spiders and hitting SpongeBob with his rock because he thought the latter was a spider.
  • In "Chum Caverns" and "Free Samples," he is able to eat Plankton's chum perfectly fine, while normally, everyone gets poisoned or sick from the product.
    • He almost eats chum again while sleepwalking in "Don't Wake Patrick," however, SpongeBob prevents him to do so.
  • Patrick owns a spatula named "Frank."
  • Patrick is right-handed.[41]
  • Patrick's dreams are empty like his mind.[42]
  • Like an actual starfish, his weight is two ounces, and he is six centimeters long.
  • Since Patrick's species is a starfish, he is also 1/16 amoeba because one of his ancestors is King Amoeba, which means his species is amoeba and he is also Patrick's great-great-grandfather and great-great-grandparents share 6.25% genetic overlap of a living thing. That's what makes him and Gary 1/16 amoeba.
  • He has impersonated a doctor on at least two occasions: "Suds" and "The Splinter," both of which had disastrous results.
  • From The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water onward, Patrick's voice has gotten deeper.
  • Patrick living under a rock is likely reference to the phrase "live under a rock," meaning to lack knowledge of current events or popular culture.


Critical reception for the character from both professionals and fans has been positive. In his DVD review for DVD Verdict, Bill Treadway called Patrick "the village idiot, who sometimes gives SpongeBob some really bad advice, but he is a loyal friend and that's something we don't see much of these days." He said, "Patrick is the definition of stupid and his antics will have you laughing out loud."[43] In a review published in 2007, Peter Keepnews of The New York Times said, "Patrick is a popular character, and the new episodes illustrate why: He is unfailingly enthusiastic, touchingly loyal and absolutely undeterred by his intellectual limitations. Hilariously voiced by Bill Fagerbakke, he is not just an endearing comic creation but a role model for idiots everywhere."[44]

Nancy Basile of called Patrick "one of the silliest characters on SpongeBob SquarePants." In her DVD review of "SpongeBob and Friends: Patrick SquarePants," a Patrick-themed SpongeBob SquarePants home video release, Basile said, "The episodes included [...] are hilarious. They're not only some of Patrick's best episodes, but also some of the show's classic episodes." She ranked "That's No Lady" as Patrick's best episode and said, "I was remiss not to include this episode in my top ten [SpongeBob SquarePants episodes] list." She cited her favorite scene from the episode, where "Patrick can't read the number on Mr. Krabs' table, saying, 'Ford knee.' Mr. Krabs replies, 'That's a seven, Patricia.'"[45] The Kids' Choice Awards, an annual awards show presented by Nickelodeon, added several new categories, including "Favorite Animated Animal Sidekick," in its 2014 ceremony.[46] Patrick received the Kids' Choice Award Blimp for the category, winning to Perry the Platypus from Phineas and Ferb, Sparky from The Fairly OddParents, and Waddles from Gravity Falls.[47]

Despite his overall positive reception, Patrick has had many allegations of homosexuality surround him. In 2002, the show's popularity among the gay community grew, and it was reported that they had embraced the show, according to BBC Online.[48] The Wall Street Journal also raised questions about SpongeBob and Patrick in a recent article that pointed out the show's popularity in the gay community.[49] Tom Kenny, in response to the article, said "[I] felt the insinuation was a stretch."[49] "I had heard that gay viewers enjoy the show in the same way that lots of people—college students, parents and children—like the show [...] I thought it was rather silly to hang an entire article on that. I don't think it's a case of it being a gay-friendly show—It's a human-being-friendly show. They're all welcome," Kenny said.[49]

In 2005, a promotional video that involves SpongeBob promoting diversity and tolerance[50] was criticized by two U.S. Christian evangelical groups, most notably Focus on the Family, because they saw the character was being used as an advocate for homosexuality though the video contained "no reference to sex, sexual lifestyle or sexual identity."[51][52] The incident led to questions as to whether or not SpongeBob, his best friend Patrick, and the rest of the series' characters are homosexual characters. After this speculation and comments, Hillenburg repeated his assertion that sexual preference was never considered during the creation of the show.[53] He clarified the issue and said "We never intended them to be gay. I consider them to be almost asexual. We're just trying to be funny and this has got nothing to do with the show."[54][55] Tom Kenny and other production members were shocked and surprised that such an issue had arisen.[56] Derek Drymon, the show's creative director until 2004, said, "If SpongeBob holds hands with Patrick it's because he's his best friend and he loves him. I think the whole thing is a part of a larger agenda to stigmatize gay people."[24] Focus on the Family founder James Dobson later stated that his comments were taken out of context and that his original complaints were not with SpongeBob or any of the characters in the video but with the organization that sponsored the video, the We Are Family Foundation. Dobson noted that the foundation had posted pro-homosexual material on its website, but later removed it.[57]

Queer theorist Jeffrey P. Dennis, author of the journal article "The Same Thing We Do Every Night: Signifying Same-Sex Desire in Television Cartoons," argued that SpongeBob and Sandy are not romantically in love, while adding that he believed that SpongeBob and Patrick "are paired with arguably erotic intensity." Dennis noted the two are "not consistently coded as romantic partners," since they live in separate residences, and have distinct groups of friends, but claimed that in the series, "the possibility of same-sex desire is never excluded."[58] Martin Goodman of Animation World Magazine described Dennis's comments regarding SpongeBob and Patrick as "interesting."[59]

Internet meme popularity

The character of Patrick has become viral in the Internet in the forms of memes or image macros. A still from The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie, which displays Patrick in a drop-jawed look, inspired YouTube user to create a presentation of Patrick's expression using a number of different filters. Following this, a YouTube user uploaded another video featuring Patrick reacting to Canadian singer Justin Bieber's 2010 single, "Baby." The meme called "Surprised Patrick" started to disseminate, with one of the first images was posted to Reddit by SeannyOC, and then reblogged onto I Can Has Cheezburger?'s Memebase.[60] Comedy websites—including BiteTV,[60] CollegeHumor,[61] Mashable[62] and Smosh[63]—have published their own "Best of" lists and compilations, covering the "Surprised Patrick" meme's popularity. Mashable's Nena Prakash said, "For years, Patrick Star helped hold down Bikini Bottom while SpongeBob was flippin' burgers at [t]he Krusty Krab. But now it's time for Patrick to come out from under that rock and take a seat upon his royal meme throne, because he's an Internet star(fish)."[62] Another popular meme based on the character is the "Push It Somewhere Else Patrick" image macro, which was taken from the second-season episode "Sandy, SpongeBob, and the Worm," based on a scene where Patrick suggests that the town should relocate itself in order to deal with an Alaskan Bull Worm.[64]
