Orin J. Ruffy is a tall, light orange fish with a dark red-orange dorsal fin. He wears a suit resembling a butler's (though he insists that he isn't really one). The suit itself is blue with purple lines going down his pants. He wears a white undershirt with a purple tie. He also wears a blue hat and black shoes. In his true appearance, he has black hair and wrinkles.
"The Great Patty Caper"
Ruffy was a suspect in the theft of the key to the Krabby Patty recipe vault. He frequently states that he is not a butler. When the key went missing, he is searched by a tough cop. Nothing suspicious was found at first, but when he is frisked, the policeman finds that he was wearing a mask, and is, in fact, a criminal who stole $75,000 worth of ham sandwiches.

"I am not a butler!"
"I don't even have the butler accent!"
Orin J. Ruffy is a pun of Orange Roughy, a type of fish.
His being suspected of stealing the key is based on the gag "the butler did it." However, even though he is not a butler, and he did not steal the key, he was still a criminal on the run (for stealing $75,000 worth of ham sandwiches).
