Respect your father!
—Fujimoto to his daughter, Ponyo
Fujimoto (藤本, Fujimoto) is the father of Ponyo and the husband of Granmamare in Ponyo on a Cliff by the Sea. Fujimoto is voiced by Joji Tokoro in the Japanese and Liam Neeson in the English version. 


When Ponyo snuck away from her home at sea, Fujimoto eventually caught up with her and found that she was in Sosuke's care. Fearing humans, he was desperate to get her back. Fujimoto eventually retrieves Ponyo and brings her back to his underwater home.

Fujimoto discovers Sosuke and Ponyo

Fujimoto discovers Ponyo has converted from a fish to a human, much to his dismay.

After discovering Ponyo had consumed ham and human blood because of Sosuke, Fujimoto then had a fight with his daughter over her wanting to be a human. He was able to temporarily stop her from using her magic to transform into a human. He then sought help from Granmamare, his wife, for further help. Relenting to her wish to allow Ponyo to become human, he goes out of his way to collect Sosuke's mother and the senior citizens to witness the event before finally bringing Sosuke and Toki to the underwater garden.
