|First Appearance||Rise of the Zitboy|
Pustulio was the name that Zim gave his pimple in the episode Rise of the Zitboy, which was its first and last appearance. Pustulio had hypnotic powers that took effect when someone looked directly at it. It is unknown if Zim is the first Irken to discover the power of the pimple (even if this is an unusual case) or if it happens to all Irkens.
Pustulio was a oversized pimple with a green tint, due to Zim's skin color, and filled with a large amount of pus, much like a water balloon, that sloshed around when moved, leading Pustulio to bounce up and down. GIR drew a face on it, giving Pustulio hypnotic powers.
Zim disguised it as his relative using a small purple tuxedo with a maroon tie and a undershirt with an even lighter shade of purple.
Role in Invader Zim
During the episode Rise of the Zitboy, Pustulio came about when GIR ordered a particularly greasy pizza; the contact with the oil caused the zit to appear almost immediately, presumably because of Zim's extreme sensitivity to Earth substances. Acne Blast, a cream made to remove the zit, made the pimple grow larger and filled it with pus, hence the "pus" in "Pustulio". After a face was drawn on the pimple, GIR looked into the drawn-on eyes and quickly became hypnotized. Zim put clothes on the zit, and thus Pustulio was born.
The zit eventually grew to an enormous size and exploded, covering the whole Skool grounds in its pus.
