The player takes control of him as he, along with Whizzer, try to escape.
When Horace and Jasper capture the puppies, Patches and Whizzer are able to escape. He asks Whizzer what the plan is. Before Whizzer can explain when they escape, they find Pongo and Perdita and come back for the rest of the pups.
As the two make their way around the mansion, Patches is usually the one who takes a look at stuff. Such examples would be that he operates the dumbwaiter controls, or tries to jump from the bed to open a window lever.
In one scene, the two pups find a sandwich. Patches eats the whole thing in one bite, to where this upsets Whizzer.
When the two later escape the manor, Patches is the one who suggests that they hide in the mine cart, starting the chase through the mine.
When the puppies are rescued, and Cruella is defeated, Roger presents a collar medal to Patches, welcoming him into the family. This welcome possibly suggests that Patches is part of the other 84 pups.
It is possible that his role in the game was originally intended for Patch; however, the puppies' sprites are usually mirrored if they are looking in another direction, so the non-mirror symmetric design of Patch would cause an issue. So Patches is Patch with his patch on both sides. Another item supporting this is that Patch has a white ear on the side of his patch eye, so Patches has two patches and two white ears.
- His appearance has a close resemblance to Patch.
- Many fans mistake him for Patch.
- He only appeared in the game, although he was welcomed into the Dearly family. This alludes him from being one of the other 84 pups.
- He looks like Patch but with both patches on his eyes and two white ears.
