He is a clever and brave man. He wants to live a simple life in contrast to Motu, who wants to achieve and be well-known. Whenever they are doing something, usually Patlu will be doing the right thing but Motu's clumsiness ruins it all. Nevertheless, he is loyal to his friends, especially Motu. They both have an unbreakable bond.

Powers and Abilities

Patlu saving himself with his stretchable arms

Patlu is a wise and clever man. He manages to save his friends even in the most difficult of problems. He can even figure out John or other bad people's plans. He has long stretchable arms which he uses to grab John and his goons when they are running or for other purposes and he also grabs Motu. He is also capable of dodging objects that are thrown at him. He has moved through time with Dr. Jhatka's machine, and wrapped Motu in a blanket.


He is not strong. He can beat John when he is alone but is beaten by strong criminals or John's goons. This may have been partially retconned during the redesign, as Patlu seems to be more capable of fighting.
