Personality

SS (130)

The bodyguard seeing Simon Grimault as a threat to Adrien.

Adrien's bodyguard is a serious, grim, and stoic man who never talks or express any emotions. He takes his job very seriously and is quite protective of Adrien, threatening Simon Grimault when the latter just wanted to shake hands with Adrien. His suspicious nature also thrives outside of his job as he glances at Marinette from a distance because she is talking back to her purse, where Tikki is, in "Guitar Villain". He isn't afraid to stand up to what he considers dangerous to himself or others, like Simon Says and Darkblade, but he becomes fearful in particular cases he is endangered. While not openly genial, the bodyguard obeys his boss Gabriel and Nathalie. He follows through on requests on others, such as delivering Marinette's Christmas gift to Adrien in "Santa Claws".

Underneath Adrien's bodyguard's intimidating exterior, he is shown to gentle and kind as briefly played with action figure dolls and secretly allowed Adrien's friends into the Agreste mansion. He can also be easily moved as seen in "Reflekdoll", when he sees the girls sincerely beg him to allow Adrien to have fun with them.


Abilities

As a civilian

The bodyguard is a very strong man as he is able to use his height and build to intimidate others if necessary. When Simon Says hypnotizes him to act like a gorilla, he is powerful enough to attack and restraint Cat Noir.

As Gorizilla

Gorizilla possesses extraordinary strength and an acute sense of smell, as well as a strong jump. Because of his enhanced senses and physical abilities, he is an excellent tracker, being able to follow Adrien just about anywhere after getting his scent from his bracelet. However, if his sense of smell is overpowered by a stronger scent, like Wayhem's bottle of Adrien: The Fragrance, he loses the ability to sniff out whoever he's trying to track.

Relationships

The bodyguard attempts to protect Adrien from Gigantitian.

The bodyguard is very protective of Adrien, leaving his side only when forced to, like when he is chased off by spiders summoned by Santa Claws. In general, he seems to be very fond of Adrien, showing signs of genuine care towards him. In "Gigantitan", when he is about to be akumatized from his frustration with parking the limousine, the mere sight of Adrien safe is enough to calm him down and repel the akuma.

Gabriel Agreste

GZ (342)

The bodyguard gets upset when Gabriel yells at him in a voicemail.

The bodyguard does his best to follow Gabriel’s orders of protecting Adrien, though in situations when Gabriel gets angry at him for whatever reason, he can get nervous or frustrated.

Trivia

    • In "Simon Says", the title character hypnotizes the bodyguard to think he is a gorilla.
    • In the French version of "The Puppeteer", Plagg also refers to him as "The Gorilla," while he simply refers to him as Adrien's bodyguard in the English version.
    • In some languages (including French), "Gorilla" is a slang word used to describe a particularly muscular bodyguard.
  • In "The Bubbler", the bodyguard can be spotted in the sky to the right of Tom Dupain and Sabine Cheng when they are trapped in bubbles.

  • Gorizilla reappears for the two-part special event "Heroes' Day".
