Maru is a major character in Planes: Fire & Rescue.

Background

Official Description

Maru is the mechanic tug at the Piston Peak Air Attack base. Friendly with a sarcastic sense of humor, he's been around a long time and has the cluttered hangar to prove it. With no budget for new parts, Maru's many shelves of old parts and machinery come in quite handy. The repurposing pro's motto? "It's better than new!"[1]

Role in the Film

Maru is a mechanic tug who is an expert at repairing damaged aircraft, making them good as new. He fixed Dusty Crophopper when he crashed after blowing his engine from saving an RV couple from danger. He even installed a replacement gearbox so Dusty would no longer override his engine while flying at high speeds.

Trivia

  • He boasts the first opposable thumb in the Planes films.[2]
