2 Squidward Tentacles 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

Well, let's begin with my review. I think that Squidward is an under-rated character. He and Plankton are definitely tied for me. I LOVE PLANKTON, cause he's so cute and tiny yet so EVIL. LOL. I like Squidward cause I can relate to him with my own self. He's just misunderstood, and cares for his friends. However, I do not like how the others treat him at all. He's always abused, and burned and always ends up unlucky. I don't think that the show should always make him the victim! I honestly feel so bad for the guy, that I kind of dislike Patrick and Spongebob in a way.

Who could not like Squidward? He's awesome and funny sometimes, which makes up for his usually boring self

I love Squidward because he's funny, AWESOME and really talented with art and music! Because hey! I like art and music too! He also has a funny laugh which is really countagious and he hates a lot of people like I do. Squidward rules!

3 Spongebob Squarepants 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 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. - McKing1003

I love SpongeBob and Patrick. But Squidward sucks

This dude is OP. He is god

My favorite one!

4 Sheldon J. Plankton 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

He is best character and best villain

Best villain - ElSherlock

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

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!

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.

Did any one else notice seasons 1-6 it's sandy cheeks while 7-12 it's sandy squirl

The sexiest one until season 11 but after

6 Gary the Snail 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! 11! 1! - crazycat99

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. - JHLover321

7 Mr. Krabs 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". - DCfnaf

Mid Life Crustacean is all you need to see to know that Mr. Krabs is, by far, the best character on the show.

I don't care what anyone says. I love Mr. Krabs! He creates so many memes, he's hilarious when he's crazy and his talk about money it doesn't anger me. Besides, remember "Mr. Krabs takes a vacation? "

"Hello, I like money."

He looks like a human version of Squidward

He is a human that shrank and got magic powers

9 The Flying Dutchman 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. - surgeonsanic

He's enjoyable. - Userguy44

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.

10 Mermaid Man 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* - Gods-Judgement

SpongeBob: There is evil afoot.

Mermaid Man: EVIL! - KingSlayer93316

He is so funny and dumb - Spongehouse

RIP his actor. - TeamRocket747

The Contenders

11 Mrs Puff

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. - Gods-Judgement

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.

She's hypersensitive all the time. - Userguy44

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!

12 Fred Rechid 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!

MY LEG!

MY LEG!

Hey,Fred, you know what? I just hurt MY LEG

LIVIN LIKE LARRY

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.

He doesn't play a big role in either of the movies. I want him to appear more

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

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.

My favorite villain

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

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

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! - ModernSpongeBobSucks

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! - lizard302

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. - anonygirl

16 Karen Valencia Plankton

Should be higher.

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 - AliciaMae

Oh no he's hot

That Unibrow is to die for - BreakFastBeast2005

I hate him with a passion! - Spongehouse

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

19 Patrick Not-Star Patrick Not-Star

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 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

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.

A fish that talks with fish lips!

The news man of bikini bottom

The best character by far

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 The Hash-Slinging Slasher

All he wanted was a job at the Krusty Krab... - MikeandZoey

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.

27 Bubble Buddy

This guy murdered an innocent person. its true. watch the episode, he watches a guy drown when he buries him in the sand.

One of the very few characters that is likeable.

He is awesome and should be in more episodes.

He should come back...

28 Wormy

Wormy is so cute, because patrick and SpongeBob love him

29 Burger Beard

...who

Burger Beard is the most stupid, uncreative and ridiculous villain I have ever seen!

He literally tries to ruin SpongeBob's life and the life of all citizens of Bikini Bottom, because he was stealing the Krabby Patty formula. And the reason? He wanted to rule the "fast-food empire" by a magical book, that can actually create anything he want...

Why he don't just wish for lots of money, or a giant mansion, or the talent to invent his own formula and leave SpongeBob alone?!

Who the hell is Burger Beard? - LordDovahkiin

Watch the new SpongeBob movie

Best character ever. Best quote ever.

39 King Neptune King Neptune

In all three episodes (one being a movie) he is a jerk and should be fired from his job as "king of the sea"

He's hilarious in the movie with his lines such as "It's ot bald! It's... Thinning! ". I never stop finding that line hilarious! It was especially fuuny when his baldness makes that guys eyes start burning. How can you not laugh at that scene?

BALD BALD BALD! MY EYES!

40 Sea Rhinoceros
41 Dennis

He is the assassin in the movie played by Alec Baldwin.

Best assassin to have ever walked the seven seas. - LordDovahkiin

Dennis is the funniest guy in all of SpongeBob. you guys are all baboons to have Dennis at 122. for god sake he can grow a mustache on demand.

Dennis> G.O.A.T

42 SpongeBob RoundPants

Um, this is just SpongeBob in a different outfit.

43 Santa Claus

He appeared in Christmas who?

That is not a SpongeBob character...

There are TWO versions of Santa that have appeared in SpongeBob, FYI. Human Santa Claus in “Christmas Who? ” and a pig version of Santa Claus in “It’s a SpongeBob Christmas! ”

44 Dirty Bubble Dirty Bubble

The episode where barnicle boy turns bad is hilarious! But my favourite quote was when barnicle boy got to choose three things

Manray: World domination!

Dirty bubble: make him eat dirt!

45 Potty the Parrot

Polly - JDogMax

He/she is voiced by Stephen Hillenburg in the early seasons and Peter Tibbitt in the newer seasons.
