Gerald is a sea lion that appears in the 2016 Disney/Pixar film Finding Dory. A running gag is when he comes up on Fluke and Rudder's rock, both of them bark, "Off! Off! Off!" at him. Gerald is obviously very sad about this. Fluke and Rudder mistreat Gerald and steal his green pail. Gerald being friendly gives it to them. what a man. Ultimately, however, he manages to sneak onto their rock as they sleep becoming the victor.
The cruel treatment of the other sea lions toward Gerald drew controversy and criticism from many audiences, as it appeared that Gerald had an intellectual disability of some sort and his bullying was played for laughs. Pixar denied this, however, saying that Gerald was a caricature of a "playground nerd" who is victorious in the end.
