Pat is a huge monkey of enormous strength. His unique size and power is a great asset in the war on Bloons.
~ Bloons TD 6

Pat Fusty is a hero in Bloons TD 6 who was added in the game in the 9.0 update. He is a gigantic monkey who uses slam attacks to crush Bloons. At level 1, his slams have 11 pierce and deal 2 damage. These attacks can naturally pop Lead Bloons, but cannot pop Camo Bloons without support. He can be placed in water or land. Pat can be unlocked for BloonjaminsIcon.png3000.

He costs $680 on Easy, $800 on Medium, $865 on Hard, and $960 on Impoppable. If Hero Favors is enabled, he will cost $610 on Easy, $720 on Medium, $780 on Hard, and $865 on Impoppable.

Upgrades[]

Pat Fusty will start upgrading himself every round upon placement. He earns more XP each round to unlock his next upgrade irrespective of how many bloons he pops. His upgrades can also be immediately bought with cash, though the amount of cash required to purchase the next upgrade will typically increase as the upgrades get higher, making self-upgrading an important element for his overall power.

Just like Ezili, Sauda and Admiral Brickell, Pat Fusty requires 1.425x as much experience points to upgrade towards each level compared to Quincy, Gwendolin, Striker Jones, or Obyn Greenfoot.

  • Level 3 - Rallying Roar Ability:Rallying Roar: All nearby Monkeys can pop +1 layer for a short time.

Statistics[]

Pat Fusty's main attack is slamming his hand onto the target bloon and causing a multiple pierce slam splash attack.

  • Level 1: The initial slam has 1 pierce and 3 damage (+2 against Ceramics), while the slam splash attack has 10 pierce and 2 damage (+2 against Ceramics). He attacks every 1.1s.
  • Level 2: Increased splash radius (~9 --> ~12).

  • Level 4: Increased attack speed (per 1.1s --> 0.9s).
  • Level 5: Gains slap attack, which replaces every fifth slam attack. It does 2 damage, has 10 pierce and makes bloons move backwards at 3x normal speed for 1s. This can apply up to MOABs.
  • Level 6: Both attacks now apply a 3.0s stun. Notable that this results in less knockback for the slap attack as bloons spend some of the knockback time being stunned.

  • Level 8: Increased attack speed (per 0.9s --> 0.75s)

  • Level 15: Slap now has 20 pierce, but ceramics count as 2 pierce.
  • Level 16: Slam gains +5 ceramic damage for 12 ceramic damage and +2 range. Slam splash gains +6 ceramic damage for 12 ceramic damage.

Skins[]

FustyTheSnowmanPortraitLvl1.png

In version 14.0, Pat Fusty was given a new skin called Fusty the Snowman, with new graphics and voice lines. He has a white body and a red face, and wears a top hat with a pink flower on it. This is a reference to the Christmas carol "Frosty the Snowman".

Strategies[]

Summary[]

Pat Fusty is one of the strongest heroes in the game, mainly because of both his Rallying Roar and his stuns and knockback. This allows him to be one of the many heroes who are frequently used in many difficult Advanced Maps and even True Experts such as #Ouch.

Pat has one of the most notable abilities in the game, Rallying Roar which allows him to combine in tandem with low-damage towers. Some of the most notable are Sun Avatar and Grandmaster Ninja, where they have featured with Pat on #ouch CHIMPS as premier strategies. Pairing Pat with The Tack Zone or Super Maelstrom has been used to achieve relatively cheap CHIMPS clears. Pairing with 1-4-0 or 2-4-0 Spike Storms are also a viable option to pair for beating a few select rounds, or when remaining income is limited.

It is important to mention that Pat Fusty's abilities require careful timing especially if the map or mode is harder. His Level 10 ability is useful for certain towers that struggle with lone single target rounds such as Round 60, 80, 85, 87, 97 and sometimes 100.

Pat Fusty has more use than just his Rallying Roar alone, because in later levels he can regularly knock back MOABs and stun bloons, starting from Level 5 and 6, respectively, including stunning MOAB-class from Level 13 onwards. Pairing him with Overclock can significantly increase his stalling power, enough to at least greatly reduce the progress of various bloon types. Because of these, he can keep bloons within place so that other towers can have a better time handling with other bloons.

Tips[]

  • Try placing Pat Fusty in a spot where there is enough space for him to reach the track while simultaneously optimizing the amount of space around him to place as many towers within his low range.
  • Pat Fusty's knockback power from Level 5+ onwards and stun effects from Level 6+ onwards can be of great support, especially from Level 13+ where he can stun blimps too.
  • Uptime for Pat Fusty's Rallying Roar at Level 3-13 is approximately 17.78%. The total uptime for Pat Fusty's Rallying Roar at Level 14+ is increased to approximately 22.22%.
  • With proper support and stalling to stack bloons on top of each other, using Rallying Roar with an overclocked Super Maelstrom will obliterate a large portion of Round 98 in one go. Pat and Super Maelstrom is often considered to be stronger than Pat with Tack Zone after the Tack Zone's nerfs to make it much less effective with damage buffs and stop popping Lead Bloons.

Version History[]

Overall, his Rallying Roar was slightly nerfed since Pat Fusty was first released. His main attacks, however, were overall buffed. He remains useful in combination with high-projectile tower strategies, most especially with Tack Zone to which it works the best with for multiple reasons.

Trivia[]

  • Pat's voice has a striking resemblance to the voice of Patrick Star from the cartoon SpongeBob SquarePants.
    • One of Pat's voice lines is similar to a line Patrick Star says in the episode Whirly Brains; at one point in that episode, Patrick says "M-O-O-N spells moon!", whereas Pat Fusty says "B-A-D spells BAD!" when a B.A.D. appears on the track.
      • Which is, in turn, a reference to the character Tom Cullen from Stephen King's The Stand. He was played in the 1994 miniseries by Bill Fagerbakke, who voices Patrick.
  • Aside from Frosty the Snowman, Fusty the Snowman also references Olaf, the magic snowman from the Disney movie Frozen; when Big Squeeze is activated, Fusty mentions that he likes warm hugs, which is also what Olaf says whenever he introduces himself.
  • Pat's catchphrase "Fusticated" is a mutation of the word "Fustigated", which refers to the action of excessively attacking something.
    • Fusty the Snowman's catchphrase "Frosticated" is a further mutation, adding in the word "frost" as a play on his snowman motif.
  • Pat is the second tower in the main series that can be placed on both land and water, after the Tribal Turtle.
    • However, as the Tribal Turtle is exclusive to Bloons TD 5, he is the only amphibious tower in Bloons TD 6.
    • Some towers (e.g. Ice King) in Bloons Adventure Time TD are also amphibious, so he is not the second amphibious tower in the Bloons franchise as a whole.
  • When placed in water, Pat can be buffed by the Energizer's 50% cooldown reduction for water towers. Stacking this with the Ability Mastery MK allows for full uptime of his Rallying Roar ability.
  • Pat is the first tower in the main series that uses melee attacks.
  • Pat is the first Hero in Bloons Tower Defense 6 to have a track named after him, that being Pat's Pond. The second hero to do so is Adora, with a track named after her called Adora's Temple.
  • Pat's Big Squeeze ability highly resembles the Bloonchipper and its Super Wide Funnel upgrade.
  • Pat is the sixth tower, and second hero, to be able to reliably pop a Ghost Bloon single-handedly, an enemy only available in Sandbox Mode.
  • Pat Fusty was named "Pat Futsy" in the in-game code prior to his official release.
  • The ZOMG was originally the only bloon that showed significant pressure during Big Squeeze. This was fixed in Update 10.0, as all MOAB-Class Bloons now show pressure during Big Squeeze.
  • Pat Fusty has the third smallest range of any tower in Bloons TD 6, only having a larger range than the Ice Monkey and Tack Shooter.
  • Pat Fusty is the first Hero to receive an ability cooldown increase, from Version 19.0, and currently is the only one to receive an ability cooldown increase.
  • There was once a bug in Version 23.0 where Pat Fusty's Rallying Roar prioritized before Sub Commander buffs, allowing buffed Subs to apply double Pat Fusty's buff. This was since fixed in Version 23.2.
  • According to Ninja Kiwi's 20th August 2021 blog, Pat would theoretically be the first character to be in Smash if Nintendo invited Ninja Kiwi to join Bloons into Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.
  • According to Ninja Kiwi's 8th October 2021 blog, Pat ate 2763 candy on Halloween 2020.
