Zuma is one of the main protagonists in the TV series PAW Patrol. He is a male Chocolate Labrador pup and the water rescuer of the PAW Patrol. His primary purpose is to rescue sea animals from underwater emergencies. Since his services aren't often required, he is one of the least used members of the team.

Bio

Zuma is a chocolate Labrador retriever puppy, with a slight speech impediment where he can't pronounce his r's correctly, though he loses it after the third season. His main duties, as a PAW Patrol member, is anything aquatic (related to water). His main color is bright orange, given that he normally wears an orange helmet on duty, his jacket and pup-pack are orange as well. His vehicle is a kind of speedboat called a hovercraft. Other characters who have been in Zuma's hovercraft are Ryder and Chase, Marshall ("Pups Leave Marshall Home Alone"), and Julius and Julia Goodway ("Pups' Adventures in Babysitting").

Nick Jr.com Description

Zuma is all about the water! This Chocolate Labrador loves to laugh and surf. He lives in his boathouse and dives into action in his hovercraft. Zuma has lots of energy for any adventure in store for him!

Personality

Zuma is very laid-back and calm, though he's not as serious about duty as Chase. He is always loyal and has an abundant liking for Ryder. He is playful and always ready to have a good laugh. He's usually sunny and optimistic. He's shown to be rather good with ocean animals. Him and Rocky are good friends and he does his best to keep Rocky from getting wet. He wants to get other people to lighten up.

He has a competitive side; he and Skye have a friendly rivalry at times, but it's all in good fun. Once, in "Pups Fall Festival," they even argued about who got to the elevator first. They're often shown to have a close friendship and they've been seen doing things together.

He sometimes speaks like a surfer and uses slang like "dude", fittingly for the water rescue pup. He's even an expert kitesurfer.

Appearance

Zuma is a Chocolate Labrador puppy. He has brown fur, floppy ears, and greenish yellow eyes. His collar is dark blue and has a tag that's orange with a silver anchor symbol on it representing the sea. His gear is a bright orange water helmet along with scuba gear on his back.

Attires

Here is a gallery of Zuma's attires throughout the series.

Equipment and Gadgets

Scuba Gear

Zuma has water/scuba gear he wears on his back like a backpack. It features with a flashlight as well. This valuable kit is used on underwater missions (such as "Pups Save a Goodway"). Zuma usually scuba-dives alongside Ryder, though he did so on his own in "Pups and the Trouble with Turtles".

In "Mission PAW: Quest for the Crown", he was given a pup-pack with a super sonar ability to see things underwater. The pup-pack is also equipped with an "aqua drone" that can grab objects.

Hovercraft

Zuma's hovercraft can be ridden on water and land, including sand. Zuma uses his hovercraft in missions he gets picked in. In "Pups in a Fog", Zuma gave Chase a ride to the Lighthouse. The vehicle number is 07. During later missions in the jungle, Zuma's hovercraft has been painted in camouflage colors, sports push bars on the front, and the engines extend further out from the main body.

Submarine

As of Season 2 it has been shown that Zuma's hovercraft can transform into a submarine. This was first shown in "Pups Save the Diving Bell".

Sea Patrol Vehicle

Following the opening of Adventure Beach and the PAW Patrol being assigned as lifeguards for it, Zuma was given a new boat to use to help protect the beach from trouble. Zuma's new boat is designed after a catamaran, with dual robotic arms, and also able to convert to an underwater mode, and a land mode for when on the beach.

Pup-Pack

In "The New Pup", Zuma uses a buoy launcher from his pup-pack to launch a buoy and get Jake's frozen back pack. Other than that, he mostly uses it for scuba diving due to it carrying his oxygen tank and a pair of engines for rapid movement underwater.

Sea Patrol Pup-Pack

With the creation of the Sea Patrol to protect Adventure Beach, Zuma was granted a pup-pack similar to the other pups, equipped with a rescue buoy to pull people to safety from the water.

Since "Pups Save the Diving Bell", Zuma's hovercraft can be transformed into a submarine and can be used on underwater missions.

With the introduction of the Sea Patrol, Zuma gained a new all-terrain boat for dealing with missions on Adventure Beach.

Skills and Abilities

Zuma is an excellent swimmer and diver, with scuba gear that support him in his underwater missions, as seen in "Pups and the Ghost Pirate", "Pups Save a Goodway", "Pups Save a Walrus", and "Pups Make a Splash". Even without his breathing apparatus, he can hold his breath for a long time, like when he let Wally breathe through his oxygen mask in "Pups Save a Walrus". He can also stand on his hind legs as shown in "Pups and the Ghost Pirate".

Whenever he's a Mighty Pup, he can spray water through his paws and can control the ocean. While charged-up, he can create energy bubbles to trap things.
