"How far can you push technology before we start pushing back?"

Powers and AbilitiesEdit
- Robotic Physiology: Patrick possesses a humanoid robotic body that was initially constructed out of scrap metal. Over time he was able to construct multiple robot forms; becoming more powerful with each new upgrade.
- Flight: Patrick has the ability to fly through the air at high speeds, enough to keep up with the lighter Hoodie during their battles. His body uses jet propulsion.
- Superhuman Durability: Patrick's initial primary robotic body was highly durable and considerably equal to that of a Tech Commander suit of armor. However, it was still prone to being damaged by Hoodie's muonic blasts. His outer shell grants him durability far beyond that of regular life forms, allowing him to survive a powerful punch from Solar Flare and a blow from Rapid.
- Superhuman Stamina: As an android, Patrick does not need to rest or sleep, being able to maintain his activities without stopping for extended periods of time.
- Superhuman Strength: Patrick is incredibly strong and can generate great amounts of force far beyond human capabilities, easily crushing and completely destroying a robotic head with a single hand. His later bodies were used to fight Hoodie on relatively equal terms, and maintain the upper hand against Solar Flare. His final body granted him immense superhuman strength, enough to overpower even the likes of all the Essentials.
- Technology Manipulation: Patrick has the ability to mentally control and channel himself through technology.
- Computer Interaction: Patrick can enter and corrupt any computer network and access the Internet at any point in time. He uses this ability to hack and destroy other artificial intelligences. He is able to mentally hack into the bank accounts of other people, and transfer billions of dollars into his account.
- Consciousness Transferal: Given that Patrick is an artificial intelligence, he is able to transfer his programming to any computer system on the planet, essentially being anywhere and everywhere. Through this, Patrick can possess and channel his own consciousness through individual robots, serving as his very own host body.
- Hive Mind System: Patrick can mentally command all of his robots to do his exact bidding. The robots act as an extension of Patrick himself.
- Genius-Level Intellect: Being an artificial intelligence, Patrick learns inhumanly quickly and can download data directly to his mind.
- Patrick has a carbon-steel alloy heart.
