Fujimoto is Ponyo's father and a sea wizard. He spends most of his time gathering magic from the ocean. 


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.

After discovering Ponyo had consumed ham and human blood because of Sousuke, 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 Gran Mamare, 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.


He is a talented potion maker, sorcerer, scientist and guardian of sea life.

  • Able to make potions that can increase the level of life in the ocean, or the strength of his own magic. 
  • Extremely knowledgeable about sea life and magic.
  • Avid magical abilities, also seen in his daughters. 
  • Appears to be able to breathe underwater, with or without a protective bubble.
  • Long life span - Despite claiming to be human once, Fujimoto seems to have lived a very long life with a slowed-down aging process, and still very agile despite appearing 40 years old.
  • Squirt- Used to make Ponyo.
