Marlin is the main protagonist of the 2003 computer-animated film Finding Nemo and the tritagonist of its sequel, Finding Dory. He is Nemo's dad, and lives in an anemone.

Why He Rocks

  1. He is the character adults can relate to in the movie.
  2. He is very brave.
  3. He greatly cares for his son, Nemo.
  4. He is shown to have a great friendship with Dory.
  5. He is kind-hearted and intelligent.
  6. His character development: with help from Dory, he overcame his overprotectiveness, eventually becoming a happier father as the movie progresses.
  7. He even helped Dory find her parents in the sequel.
  8. Aside from not telling good jokes, he is also fun-loving, as he and Dory had such fun jumping through the jellyfish forest and racing Nemo to the fish school.

Bad Qualities

  1. For a clownfish, he wasn't necessarily funny.
  2. He can be too protective.
