Pa-Patch's appearance
“When the sun rises, I wakey-wakey, and when it sets, I tuck in for snoozer-time! Perfect for a simple bloke like me, eh?”
Pa-Patch, Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door

Pa-Patch is a Bob-omb character that appears in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. He is a large purple Bob-omb with an eyepatch, and his wind-up key resembles a set of bones. Pa-Patch's name is derived from his distinctive eyepatch and the style of his species name.

Description[edit]

Pa-Patch is one of the many sailors seen frequently in Rogueport's harbor

In Chapter 5, Pa-Patch and several other sailors, along with Admiral Bobbery and their self-described leader Flavio, join Mario on his quest to Keelhaul Key. Arguments regularly break out between him and Flavio, so Pa-Patch takes a shining to Mario instead. After Mario defeats Cortez and Lord Crump, Pa-Patch decides to stay on Keelhaul Key with a few other sailors. Pa-Patch only made this decision after he was sure there were no ghosts left, as even he was afraid of them.
