Pat is a huge monkey of enormous strength. His unique size and power is a great asset in the war on Bloons.
~ BTD6

Pat Fusty is a hero in Bloons Tower Defense 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 also be placed in water. Pat can be unlocked for BloonjaminsIcon.png3000.

He costs $680 on Easy, $800 on Medium, $865 on Hard, and $960 on Impoppable.

Upgrades[edit | edit source]

Pat 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 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.

The following are the upgrades and their costs of upgrading without XP:

  • Level 1 - Pat slams Bloons into the ground.

Statistics[edit | edit source]

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 3: Gains "Rallying Roar" ability. When activated, increases damage by +1 for all towers within 30 range, including Pat Fusty himself. Duration of 8 seconds, cooldown of 45 seconds.
  • 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 7: +1 damage to all attacks, now 4 damage for main slam, 3 damage for slam splash effect, 3 for slap attack.
  • Level 8: Increased attack speed (per 0.9s --> 0.75s)
  • Level 9: +3 units of range, total 27.
  • Level 10: Gains "Big Squeeze" ability. When activated, targets strongest non-BAD blimp in range, squeezes it for 5 seconds, and completely destroys the upper layer. The children bloons become stunned for 3 (?) seconds.
  • Level 11: Slam and slam splash effect damage increased from 4 to 5 and 3 to 4 respectively.
  • Level 12: Increased attack speed (per 0.75s --> 0.65s)
  • Level 13: Level 6 stun now applies to blimps for 0.2 seconds.
  • Level 14: Rallying Roar now has 10 seconds duration, 40 range, and grants +3 damage to buffed towers (from 8 seconds, 30 range and +1 damage).
  • 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.
  • Level 17: Slam attack speed increased from 0.65s to 0.55s.
  • Level 18: Slam splash gains +10 pierce for 30 pierce.
  • Level 19: Slam gains +5 damage for 10 damage and 17 ceramic damage. Slam splash gains +5 damage for 9 damage and 17 ceramic damage.
  • Level 20: Big Squeeze now affects 4 blimps.

Activated Abilities[edit | edit source]

  • Rallying Roar: All nearby towers can pop 1 extra layer for 7 seconds.
  • Big Squeeze: Grabs a MOAB, BFB, ZOMG, or DDT (if visible) and crushes it over 5 seconds.

Skins[edit | edit source]

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".

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • 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%.

Strategies[edit | edit source]

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. The Tack Zone also 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 ability requires 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.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • 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 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.
  • 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.
