Garfield really does have a pretty good reason to put you in countless situations.
Gender: Male
Type: Entitled Jerk
Portrayed by: Jason Marsden
Status: Alive
Media of origin: The Garfield Show

Nermal is a character in the Garfield franchise and is a main character in The Garfield Show.

Bad Qualities

  1. Like Garfield and Jon, he has been flanderized, being changed from a nice cute cat into a self-absorbed jerk.
  2. He has the worst flanderization in The Garfield Show, probably even worse than Jon's and Garfield's flanderizations.
  3. His voice is out of place, sometimes grating to hear, and isn't as charming as the original Garfield and Friends was. Jason Marsden was also responsible for providing the voice of Shnookums, another unlikable cat with a grating voice that came 11-12 years prior to him.
  4. He often acts smug to Garfield and sometimes blackmails him into being nice to him or playing with him, possibly due to years of Garfield being mean to him. He is also much more arrogant and mean-spirited than in previous incarnations.
  5. He constantly brags about being "the cutest cat in the world".
  6. He was extremely unlikable in "King Nermal" and "Nice To Nermal".
  7. He lied about his leg being broken in "King Nermal", which is a direct insult to people whose legs really got broken.
  8. One time when Garfield saved him from being attacked by dogs in "True Colors", he showed ungratefulness by telling him that saving him was stupid, despite the fact that Garfield got beat up for trying to help.

Good Qualities

  1. There are some episodes where he was nice and helpful to Garfield.
  2. He's still somewhat cute.
  3. His voice does help viewers to know that he's male. Especially compared to his original female tone of voice.
  4. He does get punished and subjected to situations by Garfield for his self-entitlement, arrogance, and pestering nature.
    • At least he was valid about the fact Garfield himself was mean to him during their past, which we can understand.
  5. He is a lot more likable in the comics, Garfield and Friends, and even the direct-to-video trilogy.
  6. He massively improved in season 3, as he acts more like his older counterpart.
