Patrick Fitzgerald is a recurring character in The Amazing World of Gumball. He is the father figure of the Fitzgeralds. Unlike Nicole, he did not approve of Gumball and Penny's relationship at first, until "The Shell."

Appearance

Patrick Fitzgerald greatly resembles his daughter, Penny, the only difference being that he is much larger and bulkier with more masculine features than his daughter, with large moose antlers. He also wears brown sandals with socks.

Unlike Penny, Patrick has never been shown without his shell, though it can be inferred he looks similar to his daughter.

In the storyboard for "The Date," his shell was thinner than the rest of his family, he had a mustache, and his legs were shorter.

Personality

Patrick Fitzgerald is very protective of his family, especially Penny, and has a very serious demeanor. In "The Shell," the reasoning for his over-protectiveness is revealed to be due to the family's shape-shifting abilities. He believed that the world would perceive them as monsters without their shells. He correctly predicted that Penny was too unstable - she ended up going on a shape-shifting rampage throughout the town, changing into a progressively more monstrous form every time someone called her a monster.

He perceives Gumball to be a troublemaker when he first meets him, but after he saves Penny, he welcomes him, although he does still regularly find a reason to want to keep Gumball away from his daughter.

He owns and works at his own construction company, named Fitzgerald Co. Limited.

He appears to be a very fit person, as he is seen jogging in three episodes, and is also able to break Gumball's ukulele in "The Knights."
