Here are the moves Patrick Star can do in Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl

His name... is not... RICK

We recently got to see Spongebob Squarepants' move list for the upcoming Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl fighting game, and now developer Ludosity is sharing the attacks for Spongebob's main partner in crime: Patrick Star.

Patrick was one of the very first characters we saw when All-Star Brawl was first revealed back in mid July, and we've already seen a handful of his attacks in action. That said, we now have a graphic showing off no less than 17 maneuvers as well as their command inputs, none of which, sadly, see him smash his opponent with his boulder house while screaming "SPIDERS!"

The first favorite has to be "Toot Laser," as the potty humor-loving five year old in all of us surely can't help but respond to the simple starfish shooting a laser out of his butt. We were especially intrigued by "No It's Patrick," which appears to be performed by mashing whatever the punch button is, as it's not all that evident exactly what this move does.

It's a reference to one of the show's earlier episodes (the first three seasons have all the good ones, not up for debate) wherein Patrick, temporarily answering the phone for the Krusty Krab, gets frustrated and smashes the phone down. It's likely this will be some sort of repetitive mash attack, but we'll have to wait and see.

Two of his other attacks come from this same episode (Big Pink Loser) as Patrick's "Trophy Hat" maneuvers both call back to the moment where he receives an award. He places said award on his head because... he's Patrick, and so we assume these moves are likely defensive/protective in nature.

We old folk who only like early Spongebob will also have recognized the ice cream cone drop "Cone Crash" as coming from the Fry Cook Games episode. This was a parody of high dives from the Olympics and is almost certainly the character's "down B" if we're talking in Super Smash Bros. terms.

Check out the full move list below and let us know what you think in the comments. We're still hoping for that aforementioned boulder smash, and perhaps a powered up state where Patrick gets especially angry due to his opponent changing his nametag to "Rick."

Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl is slated to release on October 5, 2021 for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, PC, Xbox Series S, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.
