Well, maybe it is stupid, but it's also dumb!

— Patrick Star, The Camping Episode

Patrick[1] Star[2] (born February 26[3]) is the deuteragonist of the SpongeBob SquarePants series. He is an unintelligent and pleasant pink sea star who is SpongeBob's best friend as well as one of his neighbors. Patrick is quite overweight due to his laziness as well as his enjoyment of eating ice cream, Krabby Patties, and many other kinds of junk food.

He lives under a rock in the underwater city of Bikini Bottom. SpongeBob and Squidward are his neighbors. Patrick and SpongeBob like to bother Squidward. Patrick has a big sister named Sam Star. Her first mentioning is in "Something Smells" and her first appearance is in "Big Sister Sam." He has the third most appearances in the series with 266 episodes, behind Squidward with 288 appearances and SpongeBob in all of the episodes.

Description and Biography EditEdit

Patrick is portrayed as overweight, lazy, unmannerly, unintelligent, and generally ignorant. Unlike most of the other main characters, Patrick lacks a nose. Because of this, he generally cannot smell (such as in "Something Smells" in which SpongeBob has bad breath). However, in the episode, "No Nose Knows", Patrick receives a nose through plastic surgery. However, when Patrick tries to get rid of every bad smell, SpongeBob, Squidward, Mr. Krabs and Sandy deform Patrick's nose by building a giant ball of trash and sewage. In Season 1, due to unsteady animation, his eyebrows were thin and in the shape of a couple of Ms. Beginning in Season 2, his eyebrows were slightly thicker and shaped like Zs. In several episodes, Patrick is shown to variously have a full set of teeth, a single tooth, and sometimes none at all. Patrick's intelligence is generally low, although it varies from episode to episode.

In some episodes, Patrick has trouble with even the most rudimentary tasks and displays little common sense or intelligence.

Other times he can appear almost brilliant, and is prone to fits of temporary intelligence which confuse the other characters. In the episode "Tentacle Vision", Squidward asks Patrick "Just how dumb are you?" to which Patrick replies "It varies". In earlier episodes, Patrick appeared to be somewhat more intelligent, often making profound comments and often being very articulate.

Patrick seems to detect malice and sarcasm more easily than SpongeBob, indicating that he is more attentive or emotionally connected than other characters. He also displays witty banter at times and often can be sarcastic. He is generally well intentioned but often inadvertently causes trouble both for himself and also his friends.

In "Rule of Dumb", Patrick was discovered to be of royal blood and briefly reigned as King of Bikini Bottom. The true heir to the throne turned out to be Gary The Snail, who is revealed to be Patrick's cousin.

Appearance EditEdit

Patrick is a pink starfish. He usualy wears green shorts with purple flowers on him. (Just like the ones in the sky) He also in the movie wears a goofy goobers hat. Also in the movie it revealed that he wears goofy goobers underwear. In one episode patrick wears yellow pants with green stripes through them. He also wears a green shirt with yellow stripes through them.

In many video games such as Battle for Bikini Bottom and SpongeBob's Atlantis SquarePantis, his special ability is to pick up and throw heavy objects and even, his friends.

Main article: List of Occupations#Patrick Star

Residence EditEdit

Patrick lives under a rock, literally, on 120 Conch Street, two doors down from his best friend, right next to Squidward and 400-yards away from the Krusty Krab. His address is shown on his ID licenses, one from Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy III and Driven to Tears. The home's exterior is featureless, apart from a small yellow weather vane, which is shown falling off on numerous occasions. In some episodes the rock has nothing under it, but in some you can see his house like in Patrick's StaycationThe Donut of ShameNo Nose Knows, and other episodes.

Patrick is sometimes shown to sleep on the ceiling of his rock, although far more often he is shown sleeping in a traditional 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 is depicted to be nothing but a bed and a chest of drawers, yet in others he appears to have a kitchen and a living room. Also, 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 rents his front yard.

As Nickelodeon says 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!"

Villainous Role EditEdit

Life of Crime - Stealing a balloon (On free balloon day). Also accuses SpongeBob of eating his chocolate bar even though he ate his earlier.

Best Day Ever- Steals SpongeBob's new net.

Dumped- Definitely one of his most villainous roles yet. He bluntly keeps Gary away from SpongeBob even though SpongeBob is trying hard to get Gary back.

Rule of Dumb- Becomes king, and abuses his power (up until Squidward spoke out against him).

Driven to Tears- Fighting with SpongeBob, but he and SpongeBob (who smiles literally) got arrested.

Yours, Mine and Mine- He and SpongeBob battles over a licensed KK toy, but he ate it then Mr. Krabs gave two to them.

Sand Castles in the Sand- He and SpongeBob fight in Goo Lagoon.
