Adrien's bodyguard has been akumatized. Adrien's bodyguard has been akumatized into a scarlet akumatized villain.

I call him [The Gorilla] because he's huge and he never speaks, just like a gorilla!

Adrien Agreste, "Adrien's Double Life"

Adrien's bodyguard, nicknamed The Gorilla, is Adrien Agreste's bodyguard and car chauffeur.

In "Gorizilla", after he fails to get Adrien back and gets harshly insulted by Gabriel Agreste for it, he is akumatized by Hawk Moth into Gorizilla, a giant gorilla-like supervillain.[2]

Appearance

Physical appearance

Adrien's bodyguard is a large, tall man with black hair that has light gray sideburns on the sides of his head and dark blue eyes. Unlike the other people, He doesn't have eyebrows.

Civilian attire

He wears a dark grayish persian blue dress suit with a pale, light grayish blue sweater underneath. He also sports dark sapphire blue dress shoes.

As Gorizilla

He is entirely a blue shade with a lighter blue on his chest and face surrounded by thick black lines. He has light gold sclera with moderate amaranth irises with two upper canines that stick out of his mouth. He only wears dark blue, tattered pants.

Personality

The bodyguard seeing Simon Grimault as a threat to Adrien.

Adrien's bodyguard is a serious, grim, and stoic man who never talks or expresses 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 when 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 be gentle and kind as he briefly played with action figure dolls and secretly allowed Adrien's friends into the Agreste mansion in "Party Crasher". 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. He also sincerely cares for Adrien to the extent that the mere sight of the boy was enough to completely banish all of his negative emotions that were about to get him akumatized, showing that he doesn't consider his devotion to protecting Adrien a mere paid job.

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

Adrien Agreste

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. He is also willing to put himself between Adrien and dangerous threats like Simon Says and Gigantitan without hesitation, further showing his protective instincts towards the boy.

Gabriel Agreste

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.
