Top Ten SpongeBob SquarePants Characters That Should Be the Main Character


The Top Ten

1 Squidward Squidward Squidward Tentacles is a fictional character voiced by actor Rodger Bumpass in the American animated television series SpongeBob SquarePants.

He should be the main character. Except he's a REALLY GREAT character, the other reason is he gets tortured SO MUCH, and I'm really sick of some of the Squidward torture episodes (The Thing, Choir Boys, Club Spongebob and some others, I liked Good Neighbors and Tentacle Vision a lot). Patrick could also be a protagonist, but I think he is a little bit too stupid. I'm glad Squidward is at #1. And also, I will really like SB writers made a episode where Spongebob won't appear. He even appeared in Mall Girl Pearl. He really shouldn't appear there just to appear. Come on, writers, make the episode where Spongebob won't appear. And, I think Squidward should be a protagonist in that episode.

He's the real protagonist.
I hate how SpongeBob is considered the good person in the show. Bikini Bottom is an evil place now, it's no longer the place that I would have liked to see as a kid.
View Squidward as a protagonist, and you'll see how dark and depressing this show really is these days.

You better not be talking about pre movie, SpongeBob was gold in pre movie. - PeeledBanana

Honestly, I think this guy is the most relatable, funniest, and all around best character in the show. I actually watch it just for him at this point. They might as well change the title to "Squidward Tentacles"

He is voiced by actor Bill Fagerbakke, who also voices numerous other characters on the show . Created and designed by marine biologist and cartoonist Stephen Hillenburg, the series creator, Patrick more.

If Patrick had his own show it would be so funny, just don't make him like he was in Stuck In The Wringer and The Splinter. - Joansb

It would be so funny, don't make him act all stupid like he is in the newer episodes. - Catacorn

He could make the show really funny. - PatrickStar

3 Plankton Plankton Sheldon James Plankton, or simply Plankton, is a character in the Nickelodeon animated television series SpongeBob SquarePants.

I didn't know whether I should vote for Gary, Plankton, or Squidward as main characters of a show until I realized that they could all be main characters. Go Sea Trio! - Anonymousxcxc

I regret my vote on plankton I like the character but I don't think he should be the main character

Plankton actually cares Spongebob and his friends and is a role model in my book

He is relatable at times and just an awesome character. He deserves the formula!
The only time he was bad was in Spongebob’s Last Stand but he was awesome in One Coarse Meal.

4 Gary

This would be great. Kind of like secret life of pets but its Gary, instead of some retarded dog. Its not 100% gay, and it would ACTUALLY be funny. Imagine if he was a secret agent like in Phineas and Ferb. *Note to self : make new Gary conspiracy. - KingofSnails42

He shouldn't have his own show but he should have small shorts in between each episode, the shorts will be called "Snail Tales" - PeeledBanana

Lets just see what gary does when spongebob is not home and see the adventures of gary the snail

true - dum_dum
