Best Spongebob Squarepants Characters

The Top Ten

1 Patrick Star Patrick Star is a fictional character in the American animated television series SpongeBob SquarePants. 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 ...read more.

Patrick in the movie is absolute comic genius. Eg: At the trap ice cream stand surrounded by skeletons. Pat: Wait a minute... WAIT A MINUTE! SPONGEBOB! MAKE MINE CHOCOLATE! And Pat: Never mind the car, wheres the road (echo) road... Road... Road... Road... Cut to patrick repeating the word Road road road

His dumbness is his success to being the funniest character

You Have to like patrick! He is stupid but He Makes The Show Funny. PATRICK REPRESENT!

Okay, so he used to be really funny in Old SpongeBob. However, in New SpongeBob, he is a jerk that both SpongeBob and Squidward have fallen victim to. Luckily, he's not really like this anymore.

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

Even though Squidward's no longer my favorite in SpongeBob SquarePants, I still respect and like him because his personality is like mine in these ways.

1. He's uptight, sarcastic, cynical, moody, serious, mature, and ill-tempered.

2. He can't stand SpongeBob and Patrick due to their excessive mischief.

3. He hates Mr. Krabs for abusing him.

4. He can relate to Mrs. Puff due their hatred for that damn SpongeBob.

As I typed earlier, Squidward's being serious is one of the reasons that I like him. And I like serious character because I can relate to them. I don't like funny characters very much because they bug the hell out of me just as people who claim that Squidward is funny does. They're delusional if they think he's funny.

Since I'm similar to Squidward, I wish that I could beat the hell out outta Patrick 'n' SpongeBob because of how inconsiderate they are to that octopus. Why, I remember being antagonized by bullies who used humor as an ...more

Squidward Tentacles is basically a cynical, sad squid, who works at a dead end job. The reason he's one of the shows best characters is because of how he is a mirror image of real life adults. A lot of people also work at dead end jobs, earn minimum wages, and are stuck in that way for the rest of their life until old age. While I might be strange for a kid's chow to present themes like this, Squidward is certainly interesting as a representation of adult nihilism and cynicism. Counter this with SpongeBob, who also works at the Krusty Krab, yet is optimistic and happy. These two different sides show two interesting versions of adult life. I know something like this is strange for a Nickelodeon show, but it is certainly one of the reasons why SpongeBob (specifically season 1-3) is a great show.

I LOVE YOU SQUIDWARD! YOU'RE MY NUMBER 1 FAVORITE CHARACTER EVER AND I WANNA MEET YOUR ACTOR ONE DAY, RODGER BUMPASS!
Top Reasons Why I Love Squidward:
1. He's a music genius, he plays clarinet (hey, I can play guitar! I love music too)
2. He's funny. His anger is priceless, it always has me in tears!
3. He's a good artist! HEY! SO AM I!
4. He hates SpongeBob. (Don't pretend. I know you like him deep, deep, deep inside!) and he roasts everyone he's around
5. He lives beside the best character ever! SpongeBob and Squidward are tied as first favorite!
6. He can sing. Kind of
7. His laugh kills me
8. His obsession with twerking
9. His faces
10. He's cool
Squidward deserves to be number 1, I love him and his scream, SQUIDWARD TENTACLES ROCKS!

Kinda feel bad for him. SpongeBob and Patrick torture him everyday, but in some episodes (including some of Old SpongeBob's), he actually does something to deserve his torture, especially by acting like a jerk to one of his neighbors. But anyways, this show would be less enjoyable without a grumpy, annoyed character.

3 Spongebob Squarepants SpongeBob SquarePants is a fictional character and the titular character and protagonist of the American animated television series of the same name.

SpongeBob SquarePants is a lot like your typical adult. He works at a fast-food/restaurant place, yet he "keeps his head up" and likes to have fun. He is an opposite to Squidward, a cynical, sad, nihilistic squid who also works at a dead end job. In this way, SpongeBob proves that you can still have fun and be optimistic, innocent while being an adult and having responsibilities.

Spongebob is the star. Patrick is in only a little bit of episodes and if he was in every single one like Spongebob then who would have no material. Besides Patrick and Spongebob's dumbness is like almost the same thing.

You do know that Patrick showed in most of all the episodes, besides SpongeBob.

This is a little bit of people SpongeBob is obviously the number one most popular character

Who's name do they say 8 times in the theme song? SPONGEBOB'S!

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

I think he is the best character too the show wouldn't be the same without him I like him not only because he's evil but also because of all the evil schemes he comes up with and it makes me wonder if he will successfully get the Formula and keep it for good and be more successful then Mr. Krabs with his restaurant and when I think about it its too bad the residents of Bikini Bottom including Plankton himself don't know about the internet I mean could you imagine if they did a episode in which plankton discovers the internet learns how to use it and tried to looks up the Krabby Patty Formula he already has his computer wife karen and he connected her to the internet with him being a genius he could easily get the Formula and that worked for him just imagine what Mr. Krabs reaction would be if he discovered plankton found a way to get the formula without him knowing sure him and SpongeBob would try to put a stop to it somehow but I don't think it would be easy

So yeah anyone who ...more

I will get to the top of this list! All of the other characters here are pathetic! *laughs maniacally* - Plankton

Hehe is my favorite. He is misunderstood. Specially in One Coarse Meal. He is funny and if one of the characters we're real it would be Him. I see my least favorite,Krabs, as a bad guy. Watch One Coarse Meal for yourself

I love Sheldon J. Plankton he is hilarious and evil and he makes me want the Krusty Krab to shut down. I hope one day he does get the formula he deserves it he works so hard for that and Mr. Krabs is a jerk who wouldn't let his best friend share the least bit of credit for his success. I just wish he would give a bit more credit to Karen but other than that he is amazing. Squidward Quincy Tentacles is my second favorite and I love him to (hard decision) Squidward's hot! So is Plankton (he just needs more height)

5 Sandy Cheeks Sandra "Sandy" Cheeks is a fictional character in the Nickelodeon animated television series SpongeBob SquarePants.

Sandy should be nearer to the top she is awesome and one of the most underrated cartoon characters, there more episodes with sandy in it and she's way better than mr. krabs, I hate him so much.

FINALLY, Plankton has gone inside her brain; my life is now officially complete

"SpongeBob's jumpier than a rattle snake in a pickle barrel! Wait... What?! "

Sandy's awesome.

Sandy: I've seen this random person commenting on season 11 and 7. James: So you'd be talking about me. Sandy: Why the hell are you here!

6 Gary the Snail Gerald´╗┐ "Gary" Wilson Jr. is a fictional character who is a pet snail owned by SpongeBob SquarePants in the American animated television series SpongeBob SquarePants.

Gary is underestimated, he doesn't talk much, and blends in. That's why I enjoy him on the show.

Gary is great. Possibly the cutest thing under the sea.

Even though most his appearances are cameos, you'll need the tissues once he's gone (Have You Seen This Snail? )

I don't know about Gary. He seems to not enjoy SpongeBob's company that much. I can't tell because all he says is meow.

Gary is the cutest thing ever! I can feel a connection between us, I can understand his meows

7 Mr. Krabs Eugene H. Krabs, or simply Mr. Krabs, is a fictional character in the American animated television series SpongeBob SquarePants.

Can't believe everybody hates him just because of One Coarse Meal. Trust me, I hate him too, but he was good in the pre movie episodes since he was caring of his employees. Like in the Suds where he tells Spongebob to go home and get some rest. In "Born Again Krabs" he is cheap and sells Spongebob for 62 cents, but Squidward chews him out for it, and when he realizes what he has done, he gets incredibly upset about it and learns that people are more important than money, so he begs for Spongebob back. Character Development, folks! I miss the old Krabs. And if he can get hate for "One Coarse Meal", than Patrick can get hate for "Yours, Mine, and Mine" and "The Fish Bowl".

When mr.krabs was on the news and he said hello I like money always made me laugh

Mr Krabs is a cheap crab who owns the KrustyKrab rival of sled on plankton of the chum bucket and lives in. Anchor

He became the worst character because made Plankton try to commit suicide, and his greed may have even hypnotized the Nickelodeon workers to become greedy like him, so that they can make more money like him and never spend it.

8 Barnacle Boy Barnacle Boy is a fictional character in the Nickelodeon animated television series SpongeBob SquarePants. He is voiced by Tim Conway.

He looks like a human version of Squidward

I like him better than Mermaid Man because of his similarities to Squidward, who I also like. Since those tall and skinny guys are humorless like me, they're cool in my book. But then again, I like folks with no sense of humor depending on who they are.

The picture though

He never failed to make me laugh pre-movie.

9 The Flying Dutchman The Flying Dutchman is a recurring character in the Nickelodeon animated television series SpongeBob SquarePants.

The Flying Dutchman is the best. He embodies subtle hilarity and expresses slight tolerance for the annoying antics of the main characters. Plus, what would the show be without him? Not much different, actually. But there would be no perfume department, no fly of despair, no Davy Jones' locker, no motivational video about "the power within," no howling scene, and more. The Flying Dutchman added more potential for the show to actually be funny.

He's the coolest of these stupid people's opinion over al the green and purple wrestlers are the best you idiots

He's the only SpongeBob character to not have any terrible episodes yet.

Classic spongebob character, why would this show be without him?

10 Mrs. Puff Mrs. Puff is a fictional character appearing in the American animated television series SpongeBob SquarePants and both films based on the franchise.

Mrs. Puff is so cool. She is s uch a spaz and overreacts over everything! I love it! She is so cool! Plus, her and Mr. Krabs do make a great couple!

Worst character in SpongeBob, the show would do better without her. She is definitely not funny, wants to kill SpongeBob and is insane. The show needs to get rid of her because it spoils the humour that Patrick, Mr Krabs and SpongeBob (etc) add to the show.

It was okay to have her around for a couple episodes, but now she's literally just what would happen if you removed all the untortured parts of Squidward and what would be left. It looks like her only purpose is to get tortured eternally by Spongebob and never get peace. I hope one of these days Spongebob just gets his drivers license and she finally can rest in peace.

She used to get torture episodes, but now I think she's just crazy. I don't think people should hate because of "Demolition Doofus" since Squidward ALSO tried to kill SpongeBob.

The Contenders

11 Mermaid Man Mermaid Man is a fictional character in the Nickelodeon animated television series SpongeBob SquarePants. He was voiced by Ernest Borgnine from 1999 to his death in 2012.

Mermaid Man- Your mother's right son. Mermaid man will understand.
Barnacle Boy- *Flips him off*

SpongeBob: There is evil afoot.

Mermaid Man: EVIL!

He is so funny and dumb

RIP his actor.

12 Larry the Lobster Larry the Lobster is a fictional character in the American animated television series SpongeBob SquarePants.

Fun Fact: I Used To Think When I Was Younger, Larry Was Part Of The Main Cast...

Larry is important too, you know! He actually debuted before Plankton.

"SpongeBob, you are so righteous. Will you sign my pants? "

Livin' like Larry. 'enough said.

Sandy makes him look weak, and pathetic.

13 Fred Rechid Fred Rechid is a background character in the Nickelodeon animated television series SpongeBob SquarePants. He is best known for screaming "My leg!" in certain situations.

Hey all you people, hey all you people, hey all you people won't you listen to me? I just hurt my leg. No ordinary pain, but pain that hurts really really badly. MY LEG!

That guy's awesome! He always gets hurt and no one ever sees him. I think in one of the episodes, they should show his appearance. I bet everybody including me wants to see him.

Rev up those fryers because I am sure hungry for one...HELP! HELP! "MY LEG! "

He's hilarious when he yells "MY LEG"

14 Karen Valencia Plankton

Pretty well-developed. I like her relationship with Plankton.

Since when did Karen have a middle name?

The best computer in the sea

She's underwater, shouldn't she short out

SpongeBob logic rule #15 states that technology such as computers is able to live under water without shorting out

15 DoodleBob DoodleBob is a fictional character in the American animated television series SpongeBob SquarePants, who appears in the episode "Frankendoodle" as the main antagonist.

He is a cool creative villain for SpongeBob, he should come back for more episodes

Look at him he makes me sick just looking at him. Those big bulgy eyes, that square body, those two buck teeth and that stupid tie. But it looks good on Spongebob though.

I really liked DoodleBob, I think that he is a great character. It is unfortunate that he is in for only 1 episode.

The evil drawing is too funny, plus every time he does something painful to Patrick it is very funny.

16 Patchy the Pirate Patchy the Pirate is a fictional character who is a pirate appearing in many SpongeBob SquarePants specials and major events, as the "host" of these. He is the president of the SpongeBob SquarePants Fan Club and is portrayed by SpongeBob's voice actor, Tom Kenny. He resides in a small home in Encino, ...read more.

I really like the patchy the Pirate! He's pretty much the best part of the show for me. (I like seeing him do cool stuff like being in a cave, going on a treasure hunt, And having a fit about SpongeBob)

I love Patchy the Pirate! The guy's hilarious and awesome! Plus, he's played by Tom Kenny, the same person who voices SpongeBob!

He should be in the top 15. Not #23! Patchy is awesome! And he's really funny! Especially in the episodes Party Pooper Pants & Ugh!

I love Patchy! He's funny, and he makes SpongeBob unique. The only things I liked about the episode Truth or Square were the Patchy scenes.

17 Squilliam Fancyson Squilliam Fancyson is a fictional character in American animated series SpongeBob SquarePants. He is a rival of Squidward Tentacles. He appears in the episodes Band Geeks and Squilliam Returns. Squilliam is voiced by Dee Bradley Baker.

Yes Squilliam is a jerk, but he's an antagonist and he's supposed to be a jerk.

He is mean but has a good point

I hate him with a passion!

I love jerks x)

18 Tom Smith Tom Smith is a background character in the Nickelodeon animated television series SpongeBob SquarePants. His most famous appearance is in "Chocolate with Nuts" when he started chasing after SpongeBob and Patrick trying to buy all of their chocolate, screaming "CHOCOLATE!", which has become a popular ...read more.

Chocolate did you say chocolate? Chocolate chocolate CHOCOLATE CHOCOLATE. That was funny and hilarious in a chocolate with nuts

Very funny chocolate guy

CHOCOLATE!

CHOCOLATE!

19 Patrick Not-Star Patrick Not-Star is a character who appears in the episode "Hide and Then What Happens?" of cartoon SpongeBob SquarePants.

HE MADE AN APPERANCE FOR 7 SECONDS!
HOW DOES THAT MAKE HIM THE BEST CHARACTER EVER?!

Haha, I was just watching the episode with this guy on it, and it is the first time I've seen this list and the first time I heard of this Patrick not star

This guy shouldn't be this high since he only appears for 30 seconds, but I still like him. He teaches a very good moral, it's ok to lose as long as you had fun playing. No offense though, we were probably taught this lesson in preschool.

He should be in more episodes

20 Man Ray

He's the arch-nemisis of Mermaid Man and Barnacle boy, who are parodies of Aquaman and Aqualad. You simply cannot go wrong what that!

One of the best villains. I only like him in that one episode with the tickle belt

I thought they were based off batman and robin

Manray is the dankest character in SpongeBob, hands down

21 Old Man Jenkins Old Man Jenkins is a fictional character voiced by actor Dee Bradley Baker in the American animated television series SpongeBob SquarePants.

This is not Old Man Jenkins, this is Old Man Walker. The real Old Man Jenkins is the one from Senior Discount, and I'm not even sure if he is on the list. by the way, Hans is great as well.

"I told you nothing good would come from city folk and there flying machines! " My favorite line!

When I was in first grade I got in trouble for calling an old man Old Man Jenkins

My Smash Bros main

22 Hoopla Fish

Poor kid dies when he gets hit by a brick.

HOOPLA

HOOPLA!?!

HOOPLA!

23 Perch Perkins

A fish that talks with fish lips!

The news man of bikini bottom

The best character by far

Is he the blue fish or the orange fish?

24 The Tattletale Strangler

This guy's disguise is hilarious. "I'll strangle you, no, joke you I mean crush you with my..." Oh, this guy never stops thinking about strangling SpongeBob. Oh man, this guy should have a role with a different disguise in other episodes. But all those parties made it funny. It might've been one episode but that was hilarious. Th bodyguard is a strangled! Ha ha ha!

25 Narrator

Are you talking about the French narrator voiced by Tom Kenny?

You can only hear his voic from the episode

Ahh witness the Beaty of the sea.
